Yesterday, I had a Tribeca jaunt with the ultimate 
"seriously supreme accessorator" 

Starting with lunch at the delicious new restaurant ....
"a modern Jewish America bistro," 
with the best matzoh ball soup & hot dogs in town, 
from foodies Zach Kutsher, Alan Wilzig, Jeffrey Chodrow, 
& Richard Kirshenbaum!!!!

Next was a visit to the stunning & stylish installation 
at the historic New York Mercantile Exchange!!!!

This spectacular exhibition, a joint venture between 
international galleries Marlborough & Steinitz,
was conceived & curated 
by world renown architect, designer, & artist 
 
"Le Cabinet de Curiosités" is presented in a series of 
Second Empire rooms created by 18th century boiserie &
objects d'art shipped from Paris by Steinitz.

This unique installation of art, design, & antiquties
features sculptures & collages from 
Spanish artist Manolo Valdés,
hyperrealist trompe l'oeil paintings by 
Chilean painter Claudio Bravo,
and Despont's assemblage sculptures & paintings.

Reminiscent of Deyrolle's chic Paris taxidermy store &
Axel Vervoordt's Palazzo Fortuny exhibition 
during the Venice Biennale .....
this installation is extraordinary & must not be missed!!!! 
And it's been extended thru February!!!!
