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.

Lucas Arruda, Untitled, 2014, at Michael Werner Gallery

The young Brazilian painter already looks masterly.
