Must-See Art Guide: New York
This week's guide features Bill Hayes, Miya Ando, Anri Sala, and more.
Are you ready for Armory week? Ready or not, here it is: You’ve got NADA, you’ve got VOLTA, you’ve got SCOPE, and last but certainly not least, you’ve got the Armory Show. That’s a lot! If you want help navigating it all, we’ve got you covered with our comprehensive go-to guide of the fairs.
But art was not meant to live in art fairs alone. So pull on your snow and/or rain boots, and get traipsing out to New York’s local galleries to find out what else is going on out there.
Get in the city spirit by heading to Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea to see the work of photographer Bill Hayes. In his latest exhibition titled “How New York Breaks Your Heart,” the artist has captured a broad swath of the city’s residents in strikingly intimate portraits. Then, you might want to check out nearby Cristin Tierney Gallery for “Hard Edge,” a group exhibition exploring the legacy of hard-edge abstraction and how it functions in the current critical discourse—the show is full of bold and interesting painters that I’m interested in getting know better. We also suggest making at stop at Paul Kasmin Gallery for the debut solo presentation of artist Robert Polidori, who documents religious frescoes in Florence through dynamically cropped large-scale photographs.
Hopefully the latest Nor’easter hasn’t damped your art-seeing ambitions too much. Find artnet’s full list of picks below, and happy Armory Week 2018!
