Happenings: Recover from #ArmoryWeek with #WhiBi and #AsiaWeek
Elsewhere on the walls, in New York, Maria Lassnig and Korakrit Arunanondchai exhibitions open at MoMA PS1; Robert Heinecken opens at MoMA; Jordan Wolfson opens at David Zwirner; Borna Sammak opens at JTT; Victoire de Castellane opens at Gagosian Gallery; and Asia Art Fair New York opens.
… in London, Kwang Young Chun opens at Bernard Jacobson Gallery; Maria Nepomuceno, Stephen Willats, and Tal R open at Victoria Miro; Daphne Wright opens at Frith Street Gallery; and Ellen Gallagher and “Dieter Roth, Arnulf Rainer – Collaborations” opens at Hauser & Wirth.
… and in Maastricht, TEFAF opens, a leading fair for art and antiques with 275 exhibitors from 20 countries.
In the news last week, the Sydney Biennale chairman stepped down in response to the artist-led boycott (The Art Newspaper); in Queens, federal agents seized looted artifacts from Southeast Asia (New York Times); a new study highlighted the gender gap in art museum directorships (AAMD); art critic Holland Cotter published his review of the Whitney Biennial (New York Times); and a Viking exhibition descended upon the British Museum (The Independent).
And, in case you missed it, we covered The Armory Show, ADAA: The Art Show, and Moving Image New York; released our collaboration with NOWNESS, a film on Armory Artist Xu Zhen; launched our Whitney Biennial feature with a selection of artists at the fair, curator interviews, a guide, and related editorial content; and Francesca Gavin shared the latest wave of curatorial projects at art fairs.
