Tim Barber: Burning Bridges
Nike Bowery Stadium, 7-9 pm, 276 Bowery, NYC
Now that I’ve been to the Nike Bowery Stadium and having tried to describe the night to a bunch of different people I’ve found myself on the dumb end of the question: What exactly is the Nike Bowery Stadium? I say “dumb end” because I actually haven’t been able to answer. So like any smart guy would do, I looked them up online and checked the “about” link … here’s how Nike (I presume) calls it:
Nike Stadiums are new multi-purpose destinations in Berlin, London, Milan, New York, Paris and Tokyo. Stages for inspired performers, labs for innovative expressions, spaces where stories are told and others are written.
We are always open, always on.
I don’t know if “always open” translates into 24 hours … but there’s still a good bit of “Huh?” in there for me. For instance, they don’t mention anywhere that there’s a retail component to the whole thing and yet, I found myself purchasing a a pair of these?
Anyway, the real reason we were there was to revel in the fantastic display of b+w images shot by Tim Barber called Burning Bridges (again, don’t ask) … the important thing is, the work looks great!

As mentioned above, it rained Thursday night … pretty hard, pretty much all night, in fact. Despite this, here’s what the Danny Clinch opening at Morrison Hotel looked like by the time I arrived:
Jammed, from one end …
to the other.
