Back in May NYAB attended the opening of Liam Gillick’s “The State Itself Becomes a Super Whatnot,” a show as playful and socio-political as its title suggests. Gallery-goers came out to stroll through Gillick’s neighborhood of shining, candy-colored, aluminum and Plexiglas pieces, constructions reminiscent of glass buildings, shipping crates, and children’s building blocks.
