Last-Minute Plan: "Barbie!" at Gering & Lpez Gallery
Sat Feb 28 2009
Barbie turns 50 this year! (Thanks to Botox, she doesn't look a day over 25.) As pop culture would have it, Barbie-themed parties are popping up everywhere from FAO Schwarz to SideBar, and tonight's opening reception for photographer David Levinthal's "Barbie!" exhibit is one of the classier happenings. Head to Gering & Lpez Gallery from 5 to 7pm for an eyeful of large-format Polaroids of the doll in all her well-groomed, fantastically proportioned glory. (Note: Levinthal's work trades in Barbie circa 1950--'70; you won't find any modern-day trampy-tweeny versions in this collection.) The exhibit runs through April 11; Levinthal will discuss his work at the gallery on March 6 at 11am.
