At Artsy, Friday means we turn to some of our favorite partners. Join us and explore these galleries with exciting new exhibitions.
1. Clic Gallery
Clic Gallery is a unique welcoming space devoted to photography, stocking a brilliantly curated collection of photography, lifestyle, and art books. Newly-opened “Vincent Fournier: Post Natural History” finds the ecology-minded Fournier cataloguing imagined future creatures, familiar yet synthetic.
Cristina Grajales Gallery specializes in contemporary design while also dealing in masterpieces of the 20th century. This weekend, head to the Grajales booth at Expo Chicago for Sam Baron’s era-hopping franken-furniture, Pedro Barrail’s tattooed and—ironically—inviting Keep Walking Bench, Suzanne Tick’s recycled weavings, and Christophe Côme’s polished crystal and metal sculptures.
Designed by acclaimed architect Richard Gluckman, Marlborough Chelsea provides an exciting new venue to view work by some of the most innovative and admired contemporary artists working today. However, it’s the new Marlborough Broome Street location that piques our interest this month, with inaugural exhibition “PIZZA TIME!” rounding up our favorite artists to pay tribute to New York City’s favorite food.
ZieherSmith presents technically sound, conceptually grounded artwork, emphasizing contemporary experience with an awareness of historical precedents. In “Observer Effect,” Mike Womack casts drawings of unrecalled memories—retrieved through hypnosis, then forgotten—in concrete. The resulting mixed-media works define the existence of these memories, however fleeting, but assure their mystery.
Founded in 1969 with locations in Mayfair and NYC, this gallery has held major exhibitions of Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, and Pierre Soulages. The London location currently houses prints by famed British artist Ben Nicholson. These late-period etchings reduce landscapes and still lifes to their most basic, elegant forms.
