We typically preface our weekly gallery guide with a bit of playful nudging and berating, (strongly) encouraging you, our readers, to leave your apartments, skirt your responsibilities (romantic, familial, or otherwise), and feast upon the buffet-style spread of gallery openings that remains, always, at your immediate disposal. We’ll admit that we’ve been a bit overbearing—too rigid, maybe—and not terribly understanding of the fact that art, often times, must take the backseat. With this in mind, we’ll dial back our domineering tendencies and simply leave you with the map and day-by-day primer that you quite obviously came here for.
We won’t tell you that you have to see this, or should see that; we won’t tell you that missing just one of these shows will leave you with paralyzing regret; we won’t wield scare tactics, claiming that each opening missed is a month plucked from your lifespan; we won’t even mention the statistic suggesting that those who chronically skip openings are at a 74% greater risk of balding at an early age. I mean, really—why bludgeon you with the facts that you all so clearly know?
But we digress. Should you decide to heed our words, you might want to grab that flimsy day-planner and page ahead to today’s date, ’cause The Kitchen is kicking off this red-letter week with the uncorking of Ed Atkins’ Performance Capture, a work whose dynamic string of programming will poke and prod at technology’s reign over representation. With Thursday comes a collage-centric Motherwell show at Paul Kasmin and John Chiara’s West Side at Tioronda, the latter of which cinches Yossi Milo‘s status as a reliably radical home for process-focused photography.
On Friday, you’ll want to jet over to Brooklyn’s Robert Henry for that Louise Dudis show, and you’ll of course be seeing that Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller exhibition at Luhring Augustine come Saturday morn’. You could Sunday to rest your aching bones, but why not scope out the painting-print hybrids of James Brittingham at Soloway? I’m sure you’d just hate to feel that you’d missed out. . .
Here’s how to use the Gallery Guide:
- The map’s various colors represent different days of the week. For a key, click on the arrow icon next to the map title.
- For example, to see galleries with openings on the weekend only, first click on the arrow icon. If you uncheck every box except Saturday and Sunday, you will only see the galleries with weekend receptions.
- Click on a marker to find out more information! A side bar will appear showing the gallery and exhibition name, as well as other useful tidbits.
- To prevent confusion for galleries in the same building, the marker takes a different shape for every overlapping venue.
