Reviewed by Andrea K. Scott in The New Yorker:

It’s hard to imagine an artist better suited to the liminal charms of Mister Fahrenheit than Gedi Sibony, a mid-career New York sculptor acclaimed for his alchemical way with salvaged materials, in which concealment often plays a key role. The dramatic centerpiece of his exhibition, a quintet of recent works on view through June 22, is a twenty-six-foot-long ochre curtain that cascades from the ceiling, draped so that it appears to envelop the space when seen from above while opening a narrow passageway at ground level. Sibony’s repertoire also includes tenderly retouched found canvases, one of which is included here. But painting materializes most surprisingly in a cast-off cupboard, which, in Sibony’s hands, becomes a floating homage to Matisse.
