Since I'm late with this log, once again it will go unannotated. Simply put: Philip Glass live ruled, the Oscars sucked, and Doug Wheeler's light-and-space installation at the David Zwirner Gallery offered a mind-expanding 10 minutes—which, in my case, was preceded by three hours of waiting in the cold. Another New York art event, another last-minute scramble to see it before it closes—an unfortunate pattern, that.
