I Saw Stars
This wry group show is a mild acid bath for a strain of swoony celebrity worship in recent art. A couple of stars actually do appear. Janeane Garofalo is one, seen in Alyson Levy’s ”Parent Trap”-type photographic tableaus. Another is the Mexican comedian Enrique Cuenca, in a daffy video by Miguel Calderon.
Larry Krone, who harbors ambitions to be a country-western luminary, takes a star turn with a personal fashion statement: a full suit of denim cowpoke gear with glittery chaps, floret buttons and a designer label reading, ”Made with tender loving care by the tender Big Lar.” It’s some kind of major.
