  • In 2012, R.H. Quaytman was invited to create a permanent installation for Inhotim, the sprawling contemporary art space in southeast Brazil. To do so, she immersed herself in researching artists like Lygia Clark and Mira Schendel as well as Elizabeth Bishop and then Claude Levi-Strauss, who both spent time in the country. The resulting installation, which includes painting and sculptures that mark radical departure in her practice as well as a few of the photographically-based silkscreen images she is best known for, is the only work on view in this show.

  • Albert York made paintings from memories: sylvan landscapes of Long Island’s East End, vases of flowers, an occasional portrait. The thirty-seven works in this survey—all rendered, a signature of this artist, on small scraps of wood, and all on loan from public and private collections—make for the most complete exhibition of York ever organized. A monograph, lush with full-page color reproductions and essays by Bruce Hainley, Fairfield Porter, and Calvin Tomkins, accompanies the show.

  • If the practice of Urs Fischer luxuriates in the possibility of surfaces and the way they can be reproduced—be it organic matter like skin and fruit or artistic materials like clay and canvas—then there is something very sad lurking under his latest set of enormous works. The artist has digitally printed images of AbEx-like paintings, confirming that aura is indeed lost with reproduction. Perhaps melancholia has always been Fischer's point—subversive precisely because it's so thickly-veiled by synthetics.

  • In 1958, the postwar German artists Heinz Mack and Otto Piene founded ZERO at their studio in Düsseldorf. The group, which disbanded in 1966, sought to explore the future of art in a fusion of cutting-edge technology and utopian political ideals. This exhibition is a consideration of their collective work and lasting impact, and includes two hundred works by Mack, Piene, and Günther Uecker, the core members, in addition to works by a wide range of collaborators such as Lucio Fontana.

  • Every sculpture in this exhibition hangs from the ceiling and every drawing depicts forms that seem to float. Suspension, which Bourgeois believed to be a state of ambivalence, is the theme of this solo presentation that brings together works from 1945 onward. Robert Pincus-Witten has a penned a new text about the subject, which is included in a catalogue made especially for this show.

  • Is spirituality today a syncretic experience? For this artist, who has created a jubilant and terrifying array of totemic sculptures and paintings (all new work), religion is a narrative to be spun. Deploying classical techniques and the latest technologies to conjure a perpetually beaming cast of characters, Murakami has made a show about faith, largely as a response to the Great Tōhoku Earthquake of 2011, which wiped out entire cities, triggered several nuclear accidents, and resulted in a death toll of nearly twenty thousand.

  • Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball’s large-scale installation for the historic Hamburger Banhof hall focuses on what the artist calls “biographies of things.” Borrowing objects from various Berlin museum collections, Deball draws the viewer’s attention to the itinerant nature of these art objects, which, over time, have alternately been installed on pedestals and in vitrines, inside galleries and in outdoor courtyards, and in the context of private collections and public exhibitions.

  • The Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in Los Angeles is the central site of Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin’s latest multichannel film, where grown-ups disguised as tweens scramble across the warren of a space. Drones, dogs, and digitally animated creatures dart alongside—the digitally anthropomorphic and the human unifying indistinguishably across the screens. Real, fictive, or virtual, personalities become modular and the modular becomes a proposition of collective thought.

  • “As in memory, what seems assembled from the past is in reality carved from the present,” said Charles Ray of Baled Truck, a stainless steel sculpture of that vehicle, which he has crushed into a compact rectangular block. It is one of two sculptures, both 2014, that make up his latest solo show. For the other, Ray has carved a sleeping man out of aluminum, leaving—in a fashion quite uncharacteristic of this artist—the seams and tool paths visible.

  • Thirty years after the first underwater atomic bomb test happened, Bruce Conner famously made a short film out of its declassified footage, with music by Patrick Gleeson and Terry Riley. The fully restored version of the 1976 film was first screened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York last year. This exhibition marks the West Coast debut of Crossroads. A selection of works on paper dating from 1955 to 2004 are also on view.

  • Among new sculptures in Mark Handforth’s latest exhibition are a giant telephone twisted around a cadmium yellow pipe, a stout sea-foam aluminum star, hangers that twist and twirl in the air, and a constellation of twinkling neon bulbs affixed to the wall. These works interfere with space both physically and conceptually, prompting all manner of critical readings about domesticity and utility. But more important, Handforth’s vision of the object is as playful and vital as ever.
