Another dream come true. Lustrous wood, crisp modern art and old Uncle Kurt spinning tales.

Kurt Schwitters, yes at Bortolozzi. Thanks James! btw - Princeton Press has the first complete English translation of "Lucky Hans and Other Merz Fairy Tales" out now. The amazing fact is that Princeton Press on their own site offers a link to the complete text on Google Books. For free. Some people are amazing! http://press.princeton.edu/titles/8868.html

"There have been some really good shows opening around town. I'll try to get some pics of the Bortolozzi opening, too. They installed a Hans Arp, Kurt Schwitters show and the Arp pieces are presented as he meant them to be; about twelve smallish, white, anthropomorphic sculptures on a large black felt covered platform. They had only been shown on individual pedestals since the first time he ever exhibited them. There were speakers quietly playing recordings of Hugo Ball and other Dada poets reading their works, throughout the space. Beautifully haunted." J. Krone, January 16, 2010
