More Must-See Galleries
The weekend is here! Make it worthwhile with one of these galleries—explore their exciting new fall shows on Artsy.
One of Canada’s pre-eminent spaces for visual art, Corkin Gallery is recognized worldwide for its contribution to contemporary art discourse. Blurred polaroids filled its most recent show, “dancing with che,” as acclaimed Canadian artist Barbara Astman reshaped and reinvigorated a once-revolutionary portrait.
This Culver City space displays the work of a diverse group of emerging and mid-career contemporary artists, from Penelope Umbrico’s minimalist eBay appropriations to Joshua Dildine’s mash-ups of mundane photographs and alien brushstrokes. This Saturday marks the opening of Feodor Voronov’s “Relics,” the first solo show of an artist known for his word-based whirlwinds.
Julie Saul Gallery specializes in representing contemporary photographic-based art, but its exhibitions have included installations, as well as works on paper, illustration, and video. Current exhibition “Didier Massard: L’Atlas Imaginaire” presents the artist’s recent work. Romantic, fantastical, and unnerving, its fabricated photographs exemplify the eclecticism of both artist and gallery.
This staple of both Madison Avenue and Chelsea represents top contemporary artists, but also shows emerging talents and masters (Keltie Ferris and De Kooning occupied the gallery in January of this year). Currently, William Pope.L bridges old and new with his mixed media declarations on skin color (green, blue, and orange to be exact), considering the history of segregation and a playful, puzzling way forward.
Lori Bookstein Fine Art exhibits 20th & 21st Century American art, with a focus on American Modernism and second generation New York School artists. The gallery is now showing Paul Resika’s 1947-48 representational abstraction, a crash course in the artist’s disciplined studies of still-lifes, repeating subjects, and mid-century scenes.
