Jennifer Dalton's The Reappraisal

Photographer Jennifer Dalton is having her fourth solo exhibition, The Reappraisal, in Chelsea's Winkleman Gallery. Dalton snapped photos of every item in her home, to showcase in plastic frames. Each item contains a listing of its market value, followed by Dalton's reappraised value. For example, a dress she purchased for $35 is valued at $100,0000, as she wore it to her wedding. Among other high-ticket items, $20 of sex toys and pornography, set to $50,000 (for "personal reasons").

The weekend threatens: rain, thunder and lightening. A visit to Winkleman may be on the agenda, as I fear sipping wine on the terrace may not be an option.
