Four Faves ~ NYC Galleries

  1. Sarah Sze at Tanya Bonakdar: from the exterior windows to the stairwell in the entryway, the gallery can barely contain all that Sze puts into it: projections, installations, torn and stacked images, boxes and chairs...It's all-encompassing.
  2. Paul Chan at Greene Naftali: though brightly colored, these inflatable figures are somehow darker than Chan's from 2017; the fans blow more slowly, the figures are more burdened, their connections to each other more necessary.
  3. Amy Sherald at Hauser & Wirth: stoic and proud, the figures in these paintings peer directly at the viewer, making them seem larger than life.
  4. Ritsue Mishima at Luhring Augustine: 25 clear glass sculptures on reflective pedestals through which you can zig and zag, labyrinth-like, in the front room and a projection plus reflection in the back room.

James Williams: Color of the Day at RESORT

The title of Williams’ exhibition can only refer to one color, which is actually the absence of any color at all: black. In these works, the figures simultaneously hold their ground and retreat. The blackest blacks are rendered in velcro, layered between paint, giving dimension to form and presence to shadow. Williams’ spare imagery is surprisingly potent. A glimpse of red jersey with white piping = Michael Jordan. A painted arm with a gold chain around the wrist, the skin duplicated in velcro right above it, draws a line between rap culture and slavery. Such delicate gestures, so laden with meaning.
