Outside Looking In
One more thing on the gallery shows in Chelsea: New York wins over Los Angeles in the category of "the gallery opening experience."
There are great shows in Los Angeles, and the museum experience there is often a match for New York's offerings. But the basic idea of a night of gallery receptions works better in New York. Stroll from one to the next, drink the free beer and wine, bump into unexpected shows because the gallery is on the way to the one you planned to see. It just flows better with no cars involved and with the street life New York does so well....
