“David Zwirner: 25 Years”
January 13–February 17
519, 525 & 533 West 19th Street and 537 West 20th Street
David Zwirner gallery is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a group show across all of its Chelsea locations. The gallery opened in 1993 in SoHo on 43 Greene Street. The gallery has had subsequent moves to the Upper East Side, Chelsea, and expansions to London and Hong Kong just this month. On view are works by artists that have been integral to the gallery’s history, including Anni Albers, Carol Bove, Marlene Dumas, Diana Thater, Richard Serra, Neo Rauch, Luc Tuymans, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lisa Yuskavage, and more. The earliest work, from 1951 is by Ad Reinhardt, and one of the latest is by Josh Smith made in 2018.
“Gordon Parks: I Am You | Part 1” at Jack Shainman
January 11—February 10
524 West 24th Street
Jack Shainman presents “Gordon Parks: I Am You | Part 1” in collaboration with the Gordon Parks Foundation. Known for his documentation of the Civil Rights Era, this first half of what will be a two-part show begins with images that are perhaps less familiar to Parks’ oeuvre—portraits of artists in their studios like Helen Frankenthaler and Alberto Giacometti, as well as fashion editorials shot in the 1950s and 60s.
“Hans Hartung: A Constant Storm. Works from 1922 to 1989” at Perrotin
January 12—February 18
130 Orchard Street
This is the first exhibition of Hans Hartung with the gallery. Curated by Matthieu Poirier, the exhibition includes over 60 works from the artist’s 70-year career. Hartung was a pioneer of abstract art. He was constantly renewing his approach to painting through innovative techniques.
Hans Hartung at Nahmad Contemporary
January 12—March 17
980 Madison Avenue
Nahmad contemporary is also surveying a Hans Hartung’s career, looking at his work from the 1950s until his final pieces. With a studio in Paris after World War II, the artist’s peers included Jean Dubuffet and Pierre Soulages. Notably in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s he developed a new way of mark-making, using tools like a compressed-air spray gun, tree branches, and garden rakes.
Judy Chicago’s “Powerplay: A Prediction” at Salon 94 Bowery
January 10—March 3
Salon 94 presents the iconic feminist artist’s “PowerPlay” series, a body of work that explored masculinity. Completed over 30 years ago, on view are four monumental paintings of the male figure in technicolor by Chicago. Harnessing the male gaze, she said of the series “I knew that I didn’t want to keep perpetuating the use of the female body as the repository of so many emotions; it seemed as if everything – love, dread, longing, loathing, desire, and terror – was projected onto the female by both male and female artists, albeit with often differing perspectives. I wondered what feelings the male body might be made to express.”
“Anthony McCall: Solid Light Works” at Pioneer Works
January 12—March 11
159 Pioneer Street, Red Hook
“Solid Light Works” is Anthony McCall’s first institutional show in New York. It also marks the first time the artist’s vertical and horizontal light installations are shown together. The six large works fill Pioneer Works’ main hall, creating volumes of light that leaves traces on the ground, and give off a fuzzy haze in the darkened space.
“One Year of Resistance” at The Untitled Space
January 16—February 4
45 Lispenard St. Unit 1W
Curated by Indira Cesarine “One Year of Resistance” is a group show of work by more than 80 artists in response to political climate since the election of Donald Trump. It marks the anniversary to last year’s exhibition, “UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN” which opened the week of Trump’s inauguration. On view are pieces by artists like Alexandra Rubinstein, Hannah Stahl, Kristin Malin, Leslie Kerby, Mary Tooley Parker, Tatana Kellner, Nichole Washington, and Yuri Murphy.
