Kathe Burkhart at FIERMAN


What's it take to get your new gallery's first show on CAD?  Running the art advisory for the interminably wonky Salon 94, or a previous gallery for 5 years that never once got on CAD, or Kathe Burkhart. Of course Kathe Burkhart will be the answer. Who knows. Neighbors are jelly. Burkhart is great, and been terribly assigned to group show fodder for a number of years. Nice to see someone step up to bat. CAD's obvious thing for the resurgence of older semi-omitted oft-gay New Yorkers is understandably interesting for what it all predates now. And Burkhart's interest in the campy celebrity seems in line with today's mass-culture minded youth. Neat.
