For my wifes birthday I acquired a piece of art from <a title="" href="" target="_blank">Paweł Althamers “The Neighbors”, which run through April 13 at the New Museum in New York city.

Since the early 1990s, Althamer (b. 1967 Warsaw, Poland) has established a unique artistic practice featuring an expanded approach to sculptural representation and consistently experimental models of social collaboration.

It was great to discuss with a museum curator which piece to select (we agreed without a doubt), and it`s a pleasure to have this piece in the living room of our Chelsea apartment.

To celebrate it we had dinner nearby, at Daniel Boulud`s excellent (although mainly carnivore) DBGB “gastro pub”.
