Starting next week and then periodically through November, films about art (not arty films) will be coupled with a meal from Harry’s Pizzeria for the Locust Projects @ O series. […]

The works of 19 artists, some of whom are the most prominent names in contemporary art today, have been fashioned together under the title “Things Beyond Our Control.” It has been curated by Andrew Reed, who was born in […]
