What happend to Serrano's "Shit Show" opening?

A lot of folks were looking forward to be "entertained" at the opening of Andres Serrano's "Shit" photo exhibition on September 4th. at Yvon Lambert gallery in Chelsea nyc.See here.
The artist got his notoriety in 1989, when the Senators Al D'Amato and Jesse Helms protested fiercly against his photograph "Piss Christ", that depicted a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist's urine.
Almost 20 years later, the artist is picking #1 as the subject of his colorful large-scale photographs.
It's his feces , as well as other animals, and very often he sees "faces in it".
The opening event was shut off shortly after it started, due to an electric fire that occured a couple of doors away, and the order of the city to shut off the electricity in a few buildings that are connected to the fire location.
Bummer ! I was loking forward to see the photo titled "Bullshit".
