Shio Kusaka’s new solo exhibition is now on view @davidzwirner

Known for her playful and open approach to the medium, as well as her characteristic line work and intuitive sense of color, Kusaka crafts vessels that embrace organic imperfections, recurrent techniques and patterns, and imagery that alludes to historical and contemporary forms.

Cameron Welch : “RUINS”
is on view @yossimilo

Cameron Welch meticulously assembles hand-cut bits of marble, stone, glass, and tile, to produce his monumental mosaics. His intricate compositions recount epic stories of contemporary life in America, laden with references to ancient mythology, art history, and his identity. Mosaic, the artist’s medium of choice, allows each constituent piece to embody its own history while simultaneously contributing to the work’s grander narrative.

Brian Scott Campbell: Holiday is on view
@asyageisberggallery

“Holiday.” In varying shades of mottled grays with an occasional orange sun, these modestly-sized paintings, if asked to be neatly tucked into a genre, would have to check the “landscape” box. Yet with each thinly painted brushstroke and bloodletting of color, they gallop out of that stricture. One senses instantly that their maker is not looking at any one environment or lived experience, but instead touching on archetypes and conventions of looking and representation. Campbell uses the basic elements of round suns, rectilinear trees, or triangular mountains and sailboats as easily grasped building blocks.

Juan Muñoz: “Seven Rooms” is on view @davidzwirner

The presentation features seven discrete installations from throughout Muñoz’s career that highlight his expansive notion of sculpture. Among the most significant artists to rise to international prominence in the mid-1980s and 1990s, Muñoz sought to foreground the relationship between the art object, architectural space, and the viewer in his formally and conceptually inventive work. Wide-ranging in scale and format, each installation provides viewers with a distinct experience.

A must see exhibition on view @pacegallery
Ad Reinhardt: Color Out of Darkness, Curated by James Turrell
Turrell: After Effect”

The presentation, titled Color Out of Darkness, features Reinhardt’s paintings illuminated by a lighting concept conceived by Turrell, whose pioneering investigations of light, color, space, and perception have been greatly influenced by Reinhardt’s practice and legacy, in particular his “red,” “blue,” “white,” and “black” paintings.

The show examines the ways that both artists explore the decentra lization of the object in their practices, and Turrell’s lighting concept for the show will foreground the experiential nature of Reinhardt’s work.

Dominic Chambers : “Soft Shadows”
@lehmannmaupin

The artist’s most recent bodies of work feature images of friends, family members, and acquaintances engaged in acts of leisure and contemplation, set in vividly colored environments that border on the ethereal. A writer as well as an artist, Chambers draws inspiration as much from art historical models as from literature–particularly Magical Realism and the writing of W.E.B. Du Bois.
Many of his compositions incorporate Fabulist elements, including ghostly silhouettes meant to be stand-ins for the artist, and lush, surreal landscapes that feel at once familiar yet uncanny.

Alec Soth: “A Pound of Pictures”
@seankellyny

This new body of work brings together images Soth completed between 2018 and 2021. As is often his custom, Soth began A Pound of Pictures by taking a series of road trips, in this case on a quest to further explore a deeper connection between the ephemerality and physicality of photography as a medium. Depicting a vast array of subjects — from Buddhist statues and birdwatchers to sun-seekers and a bust of Abraham Lincoln — this series reflects on the photographic desire to pin down and crystallize experience, especially as it is represented and recollected by printed images.

James Castle: Works by James Castle (1899–1977) is on view
@davidzwirner

An overview of the artist’s expansive practice, this exhibition explores how Castle, who was born deaf, found his primary means of expression through drawing and other forms of art making. Using sharpened sticks and soot from his family’s wood stove, which he mixed with his own saliva, Castle created elaborate and detailed drawings. These intricate works embody a sense of lived-in familiarity and display the artist’s preternatural understanding of perspective and spatial relations and his deep sensitivity to his environment.

Sharon Shapiro: “ Fever Dream” @garveysimon

Shapiro draws on her experience growing up female in the American South as fodder for her imagery. Fever Dream is at once narrative and enigmatic, engaging the viewer in a seduction while presenting a contemporary viewpoint on feminism and commentary on racial and climate crisis.

Carrie Mae Weems: “Down Here Below”
@jackshainman

Drawing from new works and select early series, the show consists of several large-scale installations that highlight Weems’ decades-long engagement with injustice, identity, and redemption.
Activism is central to Weems’ practice, which investigates race, family relationships, cultural identity, sexism, class, political systems, and the consequences of power.
Through her work, Weems demands reconsideration of predominant narratives throughout our history.

Pierre Knop — artspeak new york - Your ultimate destination for contemporary New York art

Paysage Wonderlust, a solo exhibition of new paintings by French-German artist Pierre Knop. The show will be on view through Saturday, February 5 at Yossi Milo Gallery This is the artist’s first exhibition at the gallery.

Yossi Milo Gallery Pierre Knop’s paintings convey a childlike fantasia, depicting idyllic mountainous landscapes, backyard swimming pools and boxing gyms, with swirling, vibrant colors and a deliberate flattening of perspective. Approaching the empty canvas as both a sketchbook and a painting, the

Adam Pendleton @themuseumofmodernart

Who Is Queen? is anchored by three five-story black scaffold towers that resemble the balloon framing typical of American homes and that serve as supports for paintings, drawings, a textile work, sculptures, moving images, and a sound piece. In the paintings, Pendleton creates layered fields of unresolved text and gestural marks, built up from spray-painted and brushed originals that have been photographed, photocopied, and enlarged for screenprinting.
The drawings feature sketches and visual “notes,” and, at times, reproductions from the artist’s library of books. Pendleton’s visual language challenges legibility, continuously writing and overwriting itself.

Judith Bernstein “Gaslighting Forever”
on view @kasmingallery

“Gaslighting” is a term coined by the 1944 thriller “Gaslight,” featuring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. Referencing the movie’s plot, it has since come into popular lexicon to describe a situation wherein an abuser encourages their target to question and undermine their judgment and sanity.
Gaslighting is a psychological battleground relating to toxic power dynamics, pervasive across personal and political realms. An insightful subtlety in Judith's series is her intentional misspelling of “Gasligting” in each painting, removing the “h,” so that the viewer is prompted to momentarily question their own sanity.

Erna Rosenstein “Once Upon a Time”
on view @hauserwirth through December 23, 2021

One of the key figures of the Polish avant-garde, Rosenstein’s wartime survival, commitment to Surrealism, and lifelong adherence to leftist ideologies course through a remarkable array of paintings, drawings, and assemblage sculptures, as well as poems, diaristic writings, and deceptively whimsical children’s stories.

Jaume Plensa’s new exhibition Nest can be seen @galerielelong

Plensa is internationally recognized as one of today’s leading contemporary portrait artists; harnessing the power of this approach to convey our relationship to the world and each other by emphasizing our shared humanity through portraits of individuals.
In the nest series, reliefs of contemplative or dreaming faces emerge from alabaster, bridging the classical precept that the sculpture is already contained in the stone with a contemporary use of photography in their production.
