“Cart, horse, cart”
Lehmann Maupin’s “cart, horse, cart” was inspired by “Inherent Structure”—an exhibition curated by Michael Goodson in 2018, which reinterpreted the historical associations of abstraction through the works of 60 multigenerational artists like Sam Gilliam and Laura Owens. Co-organized by Goodson and the gallery’s curatorial director, Anna Stothart, “cart, horse, cart” displays the outcome of “Inherent Structure,” answering the question, “Where does abstraction come from?.” The display in both of Lehmann Maupin’s Chelsea show spaces features a compilation of 15 artists, the exhibition brings together works by McArthur Binion, Cecily Brown, Lari Pittman, Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, and more.
“A Look Back: 50 Years After Stonewall”
Half a decade after the notorious riot at The Stonewall Inn, Lucy Beni and Adam Shopkorn have curated “A Look Back: 50 Years After Stonewall.” The commemoratory exhibition honoring the anniversary of the beginning of the Gay Liberation movement in the U.S. celebrates themes like love, protest, and revolt. It features works created by LGBTQ+ artists around the time of the riot, along with documentation of the movement, a tribute to Neil Sullivan (who once lived where Fort Gansevoort is now located), and ephemera like protest and pride buttons and Tee Corinne’s Cunt Coloring Book (1975). Works by Lyle Ashton Harris, Martin Wong, Joan E. Biren, and Kate Millett are also on view.
Accompanying 303 Gallery’s new publication, 303 Gallery: 35 Years is an anniversary exhibition featuring the works of around 30 artists who have previously exhibited at the gallery, including Doug Aitken, Alicja Kwade, Eva Rothschild, Richard Prince, and Dan Graham. The book, created under the direction of Fabiola Alondra, features over 400 pages of detailed history about the gallery that opened in 1984. Included is a dive into the gallery’s exhibition archives and personal texts by artists like Nick Mauss and Mary Heilmann, who have provided intimate tales from the gallery’s last 35 years.
“A Body of Work”
Jane Lombard Gallery
A compilation of works by six artists—Julia Brandāo, Margaux Crump, Anneli Goeller, Juan Neira, Ryan Wild, and Max Colby—Jane Lombard Gallery’s “A Body of Work” is an exhibition highlighting implications of the human body in various forms, focusing on domesticity, identity, temporality, and memory. Curated by Shehab Awad, the show includes a range of drawings, sculptures, and collages like Wilde’s sculptural discussions on sexuality and gender; Goeller’s queer narratives, exploring the digital world’s boundaries between the virtual and corporeal; and pieces from Crump’s Blushing Bruising series, which examines the skin on the body as a marker of a moment in time.
