Miriam Cahn, Verhüllt (Covered), 2007, oil on canvas, 31 1/2 × 20 7/8".

1 MIRIAM CAHN (JOCELYN WOLFF AND MEYER RIEGGER, FIAC, PARIS) Cahn was present at these two gallery booths at FIAC last year, following a remarkable solo show at Wolff in Paris. Cahn’s personality is as intense and sharp as her painting: One never tires of it. Take the fascinating Verhüllt (Covered), 2007, in which an enigmatic female figure, veiled in black, emerges from a purple background.

2 PHILIPPE PARRENO (HANGARBICOCCA, MILAN; CURATED BY ANDREA LISSONI) HangarBicocca offered Parreno the ideal conditions for his way of working from a script and on a grand scale. His restaged pieces formed a luminous and musical ballet. You could stay for hours in the astonishing space of “Hypothesis,” following the loop of his films set to a score from a master piano. His best exhibition to date.

3 MARRAKECH BIENNALE 6: “NOT NEW NOW” (VARIOUS VENUES; CURATED BY REEM FADDA) The Marrakech Biennale
