Elsewhere on the walls, KAORUKO’s second solo exhibition at Mike Weiss Gallery, “ENN,” explores the female body through a synthesis of Western and Japanese styles and runs until November 17th, and there are still five days left to see both Nathan Carter ‘s paintings of the fantastical future in “THE FLY-BY-NIGHT MEGA METRO SUB ROSA TURBULENT TWISTER” at Casey Kaplan, and the immersive, graphic environments of Bay Area artist Barry McGee at Cheim & Read.
In the news last week, Brooklyn Rail publisher Phong Bui talks Hurricane Sandy and his 100,000-square-foot exhibition, “Come Together: Surviving Sandy,” opening in its wake (ARTnews), Omaskêko Cree artist Duane Linklater wins the $48,000 Sobey Art Award for his “broad relevance to contemporary national and international art” (Art in America), and the U.S. federal government shutdown takes its toll on the arts (Hyperallergic).
