"Drop" by Aakash Nihalani

Aakash Nihalani, the Brooklyn-based tape artist beloved for his inventive geometric interventions in galleries and public spaces, has joined the seasonal migration of New York City’s art world to the Hamptons. He recently created a suite of murals at the Parrish Art Museum, in collaboration with Southampton’s Tripoli Gallery, taking advantage of the long, long exterior walls of the museum’s new Herzog & de Meuron building.


The works include “Drop” (at top), which features a square block falling out of what looks like a long, square beam, and “Domino” (below), which suggests a tumbling stack of rectangular, John McCracken-esque monoliths. We last came across Nihalani’s work back in April, when he created a neon-hued, M.C. Escher-esque mural on the Lower East Side. Though markedly less colorful, his interventions at the Parrish Museum are of a decidedly grander scale befitting their impressive setting.

  1. Nike’s share repurchase comes at critical time for the company. Inventories are up, along with overhead and the price of its sneakers all at a time of worldwide economic concern and a decline in orders from key international markets. While the repurchase may inflate EPS over the short term, the company will require more than substantial name recognition to weather a tough economic environment that could see consumers retrenching and seeking less expensive alternatives.
