Must See New York

Sunday, July 5

  • Opens July 7th 2015

  • “What Nerve!” is a brief, alternate history of American Art since the 1960s, which is to say, a history of artists practicing outside of New York and Los Angeles. Chicago-based collective Hairy Who is presented next to the San Francisco–based Funk Art Movement and Destroy All Monsters, formed in Ann Arbor by Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw. Another highlight is the work of Forcefield, whose members included Mat Brinkman, Jim Drain, Leif Goldberg, and Ara Peterson, all active in Providence from 1996 to 2003.

  • Stanley Whitney presents canvases from the 1990s that are as capacious and colorful as ever. A restless scribble distinguishes this particular group of his paintings, crayon-like marks painted like furies over blocks of pure color—evocations of a messier, more gestural era.

  • For this chillingly epic installation, Parreno transforms the Armory’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall into a perpetually changing exhibition. Every day, the artist creates a new scripted series of events, employing his films, his Marquee sculptures, lights, sound, and other collaborative works. If you’re looking a place to cool down this summer, it’s here.

  • Curated by artist Rachel Foullon, this gem of a show presents various takes on the passageway, portal, or doorway by Trisha Donnelly, Andrea Longacre-White, Alex Robbins, Melanie Schiff, Marianne Vitale, and Mary Weatherford. As the inaugural exhibition for the FCA's new “artist's-led” project space, the exhibition sets the bar high—or blows the door wide open, perhaps—for forthcoming programming.

  • Tom of Finland’s most comprehensive survey to date brings together paper dolls from the 1930s and the full set of his gouaches from the 1940s, as well as storyboards and hundreds of drawings. This stunning presentation magnifies the dialectical relationship between crucial moments in twentieth-century (gay) history and the oppressive culture out of which Tom of Finland’s work emerged.

  • IM Heung-soon was recently awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale for his incisive, devastating work Factory Complex, 2014–15. His latest film, Reincarnation, 2015, is the centerpiece of this exhibition at MoMA PS1 and follows a group of women who danced for Korean troops during the Vietnam War and immigrated to Tehran in search of prosperity in the 1970s. The film is a continuation of the artist’s ongoing project addressing the suppression of trauma in the aftermath of war.

  • Jack Pierson’s latest output includes driftwood assemblages, small watercolor and graphite works on paper, and paintings all produced while in a “self-imposed retreat” on an island off Florida’s gulf coast. Incorporating automatic drawing, the work in “onthisisland” summons a realm both cosmic and interior.

  • Simon Denny titled his first major US museum presentation “The Innovator’s Dilemma,” after entrepreneurial theory, and organized the exhibition like an industry tradeshow, complete with platforms to showcase works including the 2012 Digital Life Design conference in Munich (All You Need Is . . . Data?, 2012), the Internet copyright-infringement scandal involving entrepreneur Kim Dotcom (The Personal Effects of Kimdotcom, 2013), and Samsung’s 1993 international announcement of supposedly watershed business-practice shifts (New Management, 2014).
