Cool Times, a slick summer group show opened last week at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art, a tony gallery on the edge of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Eight international photographers provided a respite of visual cool in the middle of a steamy heat wave. Warm Budweisers did not do justice to an exhibition begging for ice cold vodka or Curacao or some sort of themed libation to enhance the Antarctic ice floes of Dan Asher, the sterile car parks and office buildings of Daniel Mirer and the fictional moons of Wiebke Maria Wachmann. These mostly affordable offerings can be viewed until the end of August at 97 North 9th Street (Berry and Wythe Ave) or here.
