  • Ian Cheng’s “series of live simulation works created using a video game engine,” at MoMA PS1, titled the “Emissary” trilogy, 2015–17—the artist’s first museum exhibition in the United States—is an immersive, discomfiting experience, full of twitchy characters, animals, systems, and landscapes that force us to contemplate our unstable sense of self in a world that seems on the verge of collapse.

  • On the occasion of the centennial anniversary of Rodin’s death, the Musée Rodin has given carte blanche to Anselm Kiefer—a contemporary artist whose inspirations and creative processes are not unlike those of his illustrious forbearer. Paintings and installations featuring Kiefer’s signature annihilated and debris-like materials are juxtaposed with little-known plasters by Rodin.
