That can only mean one thing: it’s time for Public Art Pandemonium where the best public art exhibits from around the country go head to head. Who will win this prestigious, competitive, and totally legit […]

“Sexting” (v): the act of text messaging someone in the hopes of having a sexual encounter with them later; initially casual, transitioning into highly suggestive and even sexually explicit (Urban Dictionary)   Wake up. Check Instagram. Send a Snapchat. Answer your iMessages. Sound familiar? We are living vicariously through our devices, as if inside a […]

Sounds and views of the sea greet you as soon as you walk into the new John Akomfrah exhibition at Lisson Gallery. Yet these screens do not depict the snapshots of a relaxing, sunny day at the beach.  Instead, Auto Da Fé, one of the two new works presented at Akomfrah’s American debut show, depicts […]

There is a new player in town, and no, it is not Danny Lyon at the Whitney nor Richard Serra at Gagosian: it is the first artist-run Super PAC, For Freedoms. You can catch them at eponymously named shows at both Jack Shainman Gallery locations.  Who are the masterminds behind For Freedoms, you ask? Hank […]

“What #artworld summer shows are going on in New York?” Here at ArtBinder, we get asked this a lot.

Between the elite Hamptons Classic, and the inaugural fair of the season, Art Hamptons, alas! summer has arrived. The sun is out, […]

We have gallery openings on the mind even though it seems like the #artworld’s attention is poised elsewhere this week (we’re looking at you, Basel.) That’s not to say that the New York art scene won’t be buzzing this weekend with its own selection of openings and exciting shows. While friends and co-workers are Instagramming their […]

ArtBinder.Sebastian Vallejo.1

Sebastian Vallejo uses the term “paramnesia”  to identify a mental condition in which the connection between memory and a sense of words is lost. This, combined with fantasy, poetry and deja-vu, serves as a starting point in which Vallejo articulates his artistic anxieties. His newest exhibition at Antiguo Arsenal de la Marina Española  offers a panoramic […]

What weekend gallery openings are you going to be talking about in the office come Monday? Well, after getting a glimpse into the oeuvre of Anton van Dalen at Sargent’s Daughters (that was the May 18th, wasn’t it?), you took Thursday night to loop back to the East Side and catch Justine Hill’s wildly contoured canvases at Denny […]

ArtBinder, Gallery Openings

Our gallery openings schedule is shaping up to be relatively light and breezy this week. There’s a strong sense that New York’s art sector is still dragging itself out of its Frieze-induced stupor and brushing off the confetti, bottle-caps, and donkey hair from the week that was. And that’s to be expected. Fairs can weigh as heavily […]
