James Kalm ignores warnings from meteorologists and city officials, and rides his bike into Manhattan during the approach of Hurricane Sandy, to be part of the celebration of the work of Phong Bui. Bui is well known as an art writer, publisher of the controversial Brooklyn Rail, educator, and art world personality. He is equally respected among the artist's community as a masterful installation designer and collagist. Due to a flood in his studio earlier this Spring, Bui lost about twenty percent of his work from the last twenty-five years. This show features pictures inspired by his work with the Brooklyn Rail, and his childhood adoration of Saint Exupéry's Night Flight and Little Prince. Tragically, when Hurricane Sandy hit the next day, Bui's low laying studio, near the East River in Greenpoint Brooklyn, was totally flooded, costing him all but a few salvageable works. Includes a brief interview with the artist, Phong Bui.
