Fall Preview: Don't Miss in New York PART TWO of THREE
The fall exhibition season begins in earnest this week and there are a number of great shows not to be missed ranging from established masters like Cy Twombly, showing recent sculptures at Gagosian uptown to emerging artists on the cutting edge. If you can’t see everything, here is a good sampling of programming excellence that is sure to please and provoke, presented starting downtown and working our way to the upper east side followed by a sample of great shows opening soon in San Francisco and Chicago.
Tanya Bonakdar. We love Carla Klein’s work and are excited to see a new series of paintings in person at Tanya Bonakdar’s gallery on 21st street. Here too, is a dealer who cares a lot about the artists and whose program is terrific. 521 West 21st Street. (212) 414-4144.
Sikkema Jenkins. Sikkema Jenkins is giving us a double shot of excellence with their upcoming pairing of Mark Bradford and Kara Walker. Opening September 10th and running through October 17th, Bradford’s new work continues a trend towards greater narrative, certainly relative to his earlier paintings. Walker will continue her investigation of race relations and the American psyche. 530 West 22nd Street. (212) 929-2262.
Matthew Marks. Matthew Marks has put together two wonderfully complementary artists in Artadia award recipient Vince Fecteau showing new sculptures alongside Rebecca Warren. September 10th – October 24th. 523 West 24th Street. (212) 243-0200.
Vince Fecteau / Untitled 2003. Paper mache, acrylic paint, balsa wood. 7" x 18 1/2" x 16"
Rebecca Warren / Grand Arabesque. Unfired, painted clay. 31" x 16 1/2" x 16 1/2"
Luhring-Augustine. A long-awaited show of new work by Janine Antoni will open at Luhring Augustine on September 12th. The exhibition will feature a 11-square foot video projection and a 2-ton wrecking ball. We love the program here. 531 West 24th Street. (212) 206-9100.
