  • DeFeo’s first solo show in Paris spans the late American artist’s career with collages, photographs, drawings, and paintings made between the 1950s and 1980s, including two early tempera and charcoal works made in Paris in 1951. Rarely shown black-and-white photos from the 1970s include landscapes, still lifes, and cropped close-ups of DeFeo’s Tuxedo Junction, 1965/1974, a large-scale oil-on-paper work mounted on three Masonite panels, which is concurrently on view in the Centre Pompidou’s “Beat Generation” exhibition (June 21–October 3).

  • Concurrent with her solo show at the Palais de Tokyo, which features films made between 2008 and 2016—including the oddly sensuous No Nose Knows, which debuted at last year’s Venice Biennale—Rottenberg’s exhibition draws attention to her work in other media. A new series of drawings shown in the company of sculptures from the “Textures” series echo themes familiar from Rottenberg’s films: feminine corporeality, work, and byzantine systems of production.

  • Drawing heavily from its Arte Povera–rich permanent collection, the Centre Pompidou shows off its Fontanas, Penones, Manzonis, Pistolettos, and Burrises. But the exhibition, which focuses on the decade between 1964 and 1974, also broadens our understanding of the Italian art movement by including work by less celebrated but equally essential adherents such as Piero Gilardi and Mario Ceroli.
