“Marble Sculpture From 350 B.C. to Last Week” at Sperone Westwater includes, from left, “Purity” (2008-11), by Barry X Ball, and older works like the Ionian Greek grave relief, center, from the fourth century B.C., and the late-17th-century bust of a man with a wig.
The tendency of commercial galleries to mount exhibitions of historical material is pushed to rewardingly crazed extremes by the latest offerings at Sperone Westwater. This blue-chip gallery, previously located in SoHo and then Chelsea, has crammed two lavish exhibitions into the four floors of available display space in the narrow, overly hygienic building on the Bowery — commissioned from the British starchitect Norman Foster — to which it moved in 2010.
