My Selection: 
Daniel Buren, Peinture acrylic blanche sur tissue rayé blanc et orange, 1974, at Bortolami
Excellence—Buren’s stripes are seen often in his installations.                
Aaron Curry, Hunkulf, 2013, at Almine Rech
This sculpture has a beautiful tension in its design.
Wang Guangle, Coffin Paint 141027, 2014, at Beijing Commune
Chosen for the grays in his abstract “Coffin Paint” series. I like the horizontal line that intersects this composition.
Zak Kitnick, Quick and Easy, 2014, at Clifton Benevento 
This artist makes sculptures that reorganize industrial products and procedures. “Quick and Easy” is like a Warhol Brillo Box made transparent, which can be considered the next turn of the screw. 
John Bock, Helmut Berger, 2014, at Anton Kern Gallery
The collage materials are a nice interplay and have a 1940s vibe.
Elad Lassry, Untitled (Tea Set), 2014, at David Kordansky Gallery
Clever, with elements that echo Cornell
SUPERFLEX, Bankrupt Banks / Straumur Investment Bank acquired by Icelandic Financial Supervisory Authority, March 9th, 2009, 2012, at Nils Stӕrk 
This blue abstract work skillfully plays off branding and news. 
Vik Muniz, Three Flags, after Jasper Johns (Pictures of Magazines 2), 2014, at Sikkema Jenkins & Co.
Chromogenic homage to a classic.
Eddie Peake, Let Me Whip That For You, 2014, at White Cube
His text-based works on glass are energetic and alive.
The young Brazilian painter already looks masterly.
