Tom Leaver - McKenzie Fine Art
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

The imagery in Tom Leaver's paintings is entirely imaginary. The paintings are recognizable as landscapes, but they do not depict any specific place the artist has seen nor are they based on photographs of any topography or locale. Instead, the artist chooses landscape imagery as a vehicle to express emotional, psychological and spiritual states of mind. Leaver creates his paintings using his gloved hands, applying the oil paint in sweeps of his palm or the side of his hand, or in fingertip daubs. The only brush he uses is for the application of turpentine, and a rag is employed to pull the solvent through the paint or wipe it away. Overall, there is sfumato-like softness in the paint application, a change from the more defined and energetic mark-making of his previous body of work. There has also been a subtle and intuitive shift toward a subdued palette of varying brown and gold tonalities, offset by lighter passages in the sky above or bodies of water below. The gentle and atmospheric space Leaver produces in these new paintings is deep, mysterious, and seemingly endless. Leaver cites as influences Chinese landscape painting, which is suggestive rather than literal, and... (read more)

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures - Museum of Chinese in America
Through March 25, 2018 - Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

Richard Meier: Artist - Sotheby's S2 Gallery
Through March 29, 2018 - New York

Famed for his gleaming, clean-lined structures like the Getty Center in Los Angeles, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier has a lesser-known side – artist. Over more than five decades, he has created collages, encaustics and silkscreens, more than 30 of which from 2014 to 2017 will be featured in "Richard Meier: Artist," a selling exhibition at Sotheby’s S|2 in New York, on view February 22 through March 29, 2018. Works on view explore the relationship between space, form and light, all fundamental concepts for Meier’s architecture. Each piece “must be seen as an element in my total work,” says Meier. “They are, for me. . . a passion related to my life as an architect.” Image Caption: Richard Meier, Ottobre, 2015.

Baya: Woman of Algiers - Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition. Woman of Algiers reexamines Baya's career within Surrealist, "outsider," and North-African post-colonial art contexts.

Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice. Station Four: “Jesus Meets His Mother” - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

Creating a powerful link between Christianity and Islam, artist Dua Abbas will present her work “Jesus Meets His Mother” at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, part of the “Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice.” exhibition taking place across Manhattan. This public art project explores the journey of Jesus to his crucifixion and resurrection and presents a pilgrimage comprised of 14 “art stations” located across Manhattan. Station Four, “Jesus Meets His Mother,” created by Pakistan-based artist Dua Abbas, will be on view at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan, from February 14 – April 1, 2018. The “Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice.” exhibition, curated by Dr. Aaron Rosen, Professor of Religious Thought at Rocky Mountain College and Visiting Professor at King’s College London, has traveled across the world raising awareness for those in need of refuge. It was first on view in London in 2016, with art stations at institutions including the National Gallery, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In 2017, the exhibition was shown in Washington, D.C., with stations located at the National Cathedr... (read more)

In Practice: Another Echo - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's open call commissioning program for emerging artists. Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter's mission, In Practice provides new ways to discover the most innovative artwork, foster experimentation, and give participants the opportunity to develop and present new work. The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman and is curated by Allie Tepper, SculptureCenter's 2018 Curatorial Fellow. An echo suggests an interaction and a return: an emanation which hits a surface and reverberates as instantaneous memory — a powerful tool for envisioning and rewriting history in the present. The word "another" itself suggests recurrence, but with difference. In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed soci... (read more)

Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

New York City-based artist Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez' solo exhibition at SculptureCenter features a newly commissioned video work titled The Maid, 2018, as well as additional newly produced video and photographic work. The Maid follows a selection of American artist Sherrie Levine's Newborn sculptures throughout the course of a day in various residences, private and institutional, from New York to Los Angeles. Levine made the works in crystal and black cast glass in the early 1990s, molding them after Constantin Brancusi's marble and bronze sculptures of the same name from 1915 and 1920. By featuring not only Levine's sculptures, already appropriations of another artist's work, but also capturing their contemporary environments, Rodriguez engages the conditions and settings in which art circulates, proposing that the futures of artworks are inherently speculative. Taking its title from a 1913 short story by Robert Walser about a devoted maid searching for a lost child who has been put under her ... (read more)

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist - Grey Art Gallery
Through April 06, 2018 - New York

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time - Lesley Heller
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its en... (read more)

Saint Clair Cemin: Oedipus - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculpture by Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin. This will be Cemin's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Oedipus takes on the renowned and influential Greek tragedy in order to interrogate the commanding force that human action can impose over what we perceive to be 'destiny.' Furthering the artist's investigation into the symbolism of ancient mythology, the exhibition presents a new, twenty-part work alongside three sculptures that act as monuments to the power of language and family. The exhibition is on view at the gallery's 293 Tenth Ave location between March 8 - April 14, 2018. The exhibition's title work, Oedipus, functions as its focal point and represents Cemin's first exploration into the form of narrative sculpture; a traditional folk practice popular in his native Northeastern Brazil. Twenty sculptural tableaux are cast in bronze, each presented on an individual plinth and placed in a spiral formation that curves into the center of the gallery. Tiresias, the blind prophet of Apollo, revered for his clairvoyance, takes the role of narrator and sits at the center of the configuration, posed gesticulatin... (read more)

Alex Katz: Cut Outs - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of "Cut Outs" sculpture editioned by Alex Katz. "Cut Outs" demonstrates the artist's ongoing investigation into the properties of visual perception and the brilliance of surface as represented and rendered in the human figure. Since the 1950s, this dedication to figurative realism—informed by the scale and power of Abstract Expressionism and utilizing the graphic language of advertising that anticipated Pop—has marked Katz as one of the most inventive and technically achieved artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century. The hard exterior lines of the Cut Outs mirror their stern materiality. Realized in stainless or porcelain enamel coated steel, they underscore the artist's dedication to the flat, clean aesthetic for which he is famed. The exhibition brings together four works depicting Katz' wife Ada with one larger, multi-figure work.

Robert Polidori Fra Angelico / Opus Operantis - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the debut presentation of a selection of Robert Polidori's large-scale color photographs of the frescoes of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) contained in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence. The exhibition will be on view from March 8 through 14 April, 2018. In the canon of art history, these works, executed in the birthplace of the Renaissance, give us a full sense of the period's renewed commitment to the life of the spirit. Polidori visited the Convento di San Marco several times over the course of 2010 to capture the solemnity and sheer force of the frescoes and their reflection, through the depiction of the life of Christ, of the universal condition of mankind. The frescoes, painted by Fra Angelico between 1439 and 1444 for purposes of devotion and contemplation, extend beyond literal storytelling. They shift into the metaphysical realm, bringing the viewer into contact with the incidents of the life of Christ in the context of a newborn psychological and subjective interpretation. In this altered manner of worship lies the root of the changes in faith and understanding that were to follow during the span of the reawakening th... (read more)

Jeff Koons: Easyfun-Ethereal - Gagosian
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Gagosian is pleased to present “Easyfun-Ethereal,” seven large-scale paintings by Jeff Koons, which were first presented together at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin in 2000. Three of the paintings are on generous loan from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Also on view, will be Woman Reclining (2010–14), a granite sculpture from the Antiquity series. Following the enthusiastic public response to Balloon Flower (Blue), the large mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture installed in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin in 1999, the Deutsche Guggenheim commissioned the first seven of the Easyfun-Ethereal paintings: mural-sized tableaux that combine cut-out photographs of packaged foods, fragments of faces, limbs, and hair, amusement park scenes, and paradisiacal landscapes into images of convulsive beauty.

The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975 - New York Historical Society
Through April 22, 2018 - New York

The New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking exhibition on one of the most controversial events of the 20th century: the Vietnam War. Populating a 3,000-square-foot gallery with interpretive displays, digital media, artwork, artifacts, photographs, and documents, the exhibit provides an enlightening account of the causes, progression, and impact of the war. Spanning the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina from 1945 to 1975, the narrative incorporates perspectives that cover both the home front and the war front. Displays feature such topics as the Cold War, the draft, military campaigns initiated by both sides, the growth of the antiwar movement, the role of the president, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition, explore themes of patriotism, duty, and citizenship through key objects, including a troopship berthing unit, vibrant antiwar posters, artwork by Vietnam vets, a Viet Cong bicycle, the Pentagon Papers, and historical film footage. Long overdue in the realm of public history, the exhibit not only provides a chronological and thematic analysis of the Vietnam War but also inspires a fuller, more diverse conversation about the war. ...

In Beauty it is Finished Drawings 1951-2008 - Gagosian
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Gagosian is pleased to present the first career-spanning exhibition of drawings and works on paper by Cy Twombly, organized in association with the Cy Twombly Foundation. Throughout his career, Twombly sustained an active engagement with drawing, gesture, and making marks on paper. His urgent, meandering lines embody the intimate energies that carry over into his paintings, sculptures, and photography. Despite their enigmatic qualities, Twombly’s drawings are strikingly articulate in their rhythm, line, and allusions. At once economical and deeply sensual, they contain a timeless language, mediating between ancient and modern culture.

exonemo: The Life-Cycle of Interfaces - New Media Art Space
Through May 04, 2018 - New York

For The Life-Cycle of Interfaces exhibition, the artists will exhibit a suite of four works: Documentation about selected works: Since 2012, Exonemo has been organizing Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet black market), a “backstreet of the internet.” Artists and creators are invited to occupy a flea-market styled exhibition space, and sell items that are interesting and unique to the internet. Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another. DesktopBAM (2010) is a performance piece entailing programmati... (read more)

Through May 28, 2018 - New York

Terry Winters Forces and Fictions - The Drawing Center
Through July 29, 2018 - Soho

A leading figure in the art world for four decades, Terry Winters became well known in the 1980s for his materially-conscious drawings and paintings. Representing the patterns and schema that undergird physical and intellectual life—French philosopher Gilles Deleuze is cited as an important reference—Winters's drawings of grids, networks, and knots illustrate complex encounters between biological drives, technological systems, and mental processes. The Drawing Center's Main Gallery will present an overview of Winters's drawings from 1980 to the present including full cycles of drawings, such as File Drawings (2009), as well as a selection of large-scale works on paper that foreground the overarching theme of Winters's practice: the desire to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received. Rather than offering a comprehensive drawing retrospective, the show will be organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the gallery, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images.
