In Must See
Must See For Week of 09/23
On 23, Sep 2013 | In Must See | By marywp
Simon Leung ACTIONS! @ the Kitchen.
Simon Leung re-visit action-based practices through a performance that will touch on the conversations surrounding the intersection of art, labor, community, and politics we’ve heard and had so often this past year or two. Saturday’s performance concludes with a live discussion among participants including Leung and Julia Bryan-Wilson, moderated by Tim Griffin which will be a real treat.
Friday 09/27 and 09/28 at 8pm.
Compared to last year’s mid-summer event, Photoville this year has been decidedly under the radar, having the misfortune to open the same weekend when everyone was catching up on gallery openings and networking (or just browsing) at Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair @ PS1. Still, I would recommend checking out Photoville, if nothing more to see how artists and curators have found ways to push the boundaries imposed by hanging an exhibition in a non-climate, poorly lit storage container. Having over a week to find the right time to drop by is also a bonus.
Brooklyn Bridge Park
Moma New Photography
Yes, the show did open Sep 14, but I for one haven’t had the chance to pop by yet. MOMA is open late Friday night (also free after 5pm) and there really aren’t any more excuse to bypass this.
Jan Dibbets @ Gladstone Gallery
The gallery is presenting a series of Dibbet’s more recent color studies–close ups of brightly hued car hoods. Although not as conceptually intriguing as the Perspective Corrections and Horizons that make up his earlier practice, Dibbets remains an enigmatic, yet under-recognized artist.
