"No New Tale to Tell " at new 31 Grand


Is it a riot scene, a political demonstration, a fire drill, an Improv Everywhere mission? No, it's just the overflow crowd outside the new 31 Grand on Ludlow Street last night, welcoming the gallery in its move from Williamsburg (yeah, 31 Grand) to the Lower East Side.

The show was dominated by the gallery's own artists, but there were some special guests as well. I think we'll call it a corker and ignore the title. What follows is just a taste of the 28 works in the show (unofficially, 29 last night, since Carol Riot Kane made a stunning addition to the crowd).
