I had fallen head over heels in love with Robert Colescott’s paintings at the New Museum sixty year survey in July. Robert Colescott: Women, at Venus Over Manhattan, one of my favorite galleries, had 30 works that I had not seen before. I know I audibly gasped when I walked in, and possibly commented out loud in front of several pieces. Luckily the gallery attendant is in the far front of the gallery, so I’ll just pretend she never heard me.

Fencing Women and Imagine Acrobats are wonderful collages done almost sixty years ago.
The exhibition runs through January 14, 2023.
