Mini reviews sent from Berlin from the last two days openings:
Tomma Abts at Giti Nourbakhsch – Dramatic new direction. Erm… No. Not really.
Stephen G. Rhodes at Isabella Bortolozzi – “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kelley, Lite!”
Cheyney Thompson at Daniel Buchholz – conceptudull.
Thea Djordjadze at Micky Schubert – our first visit to this tiny Kreuzberg gallery which managed to trump the Djordjadze show at Sprueth Magers aerodrome.
General Idea at Esther Schipper – best in show. Includes wonderfully hammy acting in their only film ‘God is My Gigolo’.

Having flown back to London, I missed the opening of Stephen Rhodes’ show at Isabella Bortolozzi. Gossip is that Rhodes has only been able to work with Metro Pictures since Sterling Ruby left for Pace. Apparently Sterling can’t stand Mr Rhodes, and threatened to leave should he be taken on by the gallery.
