Dont miss Everything Matters: Paul Kos, A Retrospective, a show Mark Stevens of New York Magazine describes as a genuine touch of Zen, which values absurdity as something that can help the mind transcend the limitations of ordinary discourse and rational thought. Describing Koss spectacular video installation, Chartres Bleu, New York Times chief art critic, Michael Kimmelman, encourages you to Sit, look, breatheThe results are almost religious if you let them be: Im not talking about conventional religion but the religion of a new medium and a devoted congregation of patient spectators. Call it Conceptualist faith.

This November 5 and December 3 from 6 to 8 pm, we invite you to join NYU Grey Art Gallery director Lynn Gumpert for the gallerys First Wednesday Salons, informal gatherings held on the first Wednesday of each month that the gallery is open to the public. Everything Matters is the first solo museum exhibition on the East Coast of the pioneering work of Paul Kos, a leading figure of the Bay Area Conceptual Art movement. Everything Matters features approximately fifteen works spanning three decades of this San Francisco-based artists career. Kos is recognized as a pioneer in the genres of video, performance, and installation. In step with such peers as Bruce Nauman and Vito Acconci, Kos was among the first artists to incorporate video, sound, and interactivity into sculptural installations. Organized by the University of Californias Berkeley Art Museum, Everything Matters surveys Koss explorations of paradoxes of faith, war, and nature. Everything Matters remains on view through December 6, 2003.
