Fall Preview: Don't Miss in New York PART ONE of THREE
The fall exhibition season begins in earnest this week and there are a number of great shows not to be missed ranging from established masters like Cy Twombly, showing recent sculptures at Gagosian uptown to emerging artists on the cutting edge. If you can’t see everything, here is a good sampling of programming excellence that is sure to please and provoke, presented starting downtown and working our way to the upper east side followed by a sample of great shows opening soon in San Francisco and Chicago.
Harris-Lieberman. Jessie Washburne-Harris and Michael Lieberman have built an outstanding program since opening their space on Van Dam street in 2005 (their first show, a multi-media installation by Israeli-born artist, Ohad Meromi, was only just rivaled in its lack of commercial potential by Christoph Buchel’s architectural installation at the inaugural exhibition mounted by Michele Maccarone in 2002). On September 12th, the due will present a new series of photographic work by Lisa Oppenheim. Juxtaposing a haunting series of dark-hued photographs entitled “Killed Negatives: After Walker Evans” with stunningly beautiful photograms. 89 Van Dam Street. (212) 206-1290.
Deitch. Ever since Rhona Hoffman told us we had to take a look at Kehinde Wiley, we’ve been happy we did. Wiley’s new paintings debut at Deitch Projects on September 3rd, running through the 26th. 76 Grand Street. (212) 343-7300.
Maccarone. A sculpture show at Macarrone featuring great guy Corey McCorkle, Carol Bove, whose presence at the 2008 Whitney Biennale wowed, David Lamelas, Oscar Tuazon / Eli Hansen and Kaari Upson. Michele Macarrone is a true curator; her eye is sharp and her insights spot on. She also cares a lot about artists, which we think is really important. September 12th – October 24th. 630 Greenwich Street. (212) 431-4977.
David Zwirner. David Zwirner’s complex of incredibly well-designed gallery spaces allows for divergent practices to be presented simultaneously. Raoul de Keyser’s abstract paintings will be paired with new work from Chris Ofili. Opening September 10th and running through October 24th. 525-533 West 19th Street. (212) 727-2070.
Jack Shainman Gallery. Jack Shainman has consistently produced outstanding shows that are exceedingly well curated (Carrie Mae Weems, Artadia award recipient, Nick Cave, Kerry James Marshall, among others in just the past 18 months). Tim Bavington will present new works on September 11th running through October 10th. 513 West 20th Street. (212) 645-1701.
