Co-curated by New York gallery Gresham's Ghost, Gran Prix was tremendously ambitious in its scope, not only occupying Nudashank (co-owned by erstwhile CP contributor Alex Ebstein) and Gallery Four, but also taking over two empty storefronts on Howard Street, providing a vision of what the new Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District could look like. Gran Prix was great not only for its grand vision, but also for its individual pieces, like Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez's American automotive zen meditation series. Even a piece like Max Guy's series of clocks, which didn't initially impress us, have grown in their power over time (we guess, being clocks, that was the point). Fuck $RB's Grand Prix, this is the kind of thing the city should be pouring its money into.
