Happenings: Armory Arts Week, Xu Zhen, and the Whitney Biennial
This week, we continue our previews of The Armory Show, ADAA: The Art Show, and Moving Image New York, all of which open to the public this Thursday, March 6th. Additionally, we launch a film on Chinese artist Xu Zhen in collaboration with NOWNESS, and we feature the highly anticipated Whitney Biennial, which also opens this week.
… in Los Angeles, Edward Cella Art + Architecture opens Chris Trueman and Mark Harrington.
… in London, Stephen Willats opens at Whitechapel Gallery; and Haim Steinbach and Martin Gamper opens at the Serpentine.
In the news last week, Carol Vogel shared a thorough guide of the Whitney Biennial (New York Times); Thomas Heatherwick will design a museum in Cape Town from grain silos (The Art Newspaper); a new bill aims to grant artists resale royalties (Art in America); Jeff Koons and John Waters streamed a live conversation online (ARTINFO); and George W. Bush will receive his first exhibition in April (New York Magazine).
And, in case you missed it, we shared a teaser to our Xu Zhen film, we highlight dealers Angela Westwater and Dorsey Waxter; we covered Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler’s newest film; and we spoke to artist Eva LeWitt, daughter of Sol LeWitt, on the occasion of her father’s new show at London’s Sims Reed Gallery.
