SEE: JANIS KOUNELLIS AT GAVIN BROWN GALLERIES


Jannis Kounellis exhibition at Gavin Brown Galleries, 439 West 127th Street by Amsterdam Avenue.   On November 4, Gavin Brown’s enterprise will open a solo exhibition by Jannis Kounellis. The exhibition features historic works, alongside works from the last few years of the artist's life. Born in Greece and arriving in Rome at age 20, Kounellis can be seen as a stand-in for European trauma – a man in exile wandering the world in the aftermath of war. Kounellis rejected the notion of a post-war society. To him, war and its trauma linger in the social psyche indefinitely. His work transcends any specific political moment, speaking instead to turmoil across borders and histories.  More details at the Gavin Brown gallery site: LINK

DWELL: 146 WEST 121ST STREET BACK ON MARKET

Harlem Bespoke:  An SRO brownstone at 146 West 121st Street by 7th Avenue arrived on the market for the asking of $2.2 million in November of last year, had a contract out in January and now is back on the market with a price increase set at $2.4 million.  As previously mentioned, there is a Certificate of Non Harassment in place which makes all of the difference and a lot of original details are intact inside.  With that said, these properties are usually only for cash buyers and will need additional financing to renovate.  The Mount Morris Park address is also noteworthy and the new Whole Foods is just 4 blocks away.  More photos and details can be found on Streeteasy: LINK
