“Afro Kismet” features Fred Wilson’s most recent body of work, previously exhibited at the 15th Istanbul Biennial. The installation touches upon the often unspoken history of African people’s presence in Turkey. On view are chandeliers, black glass works, Iznik tile walls, and vitrines of cowrie shells, engravings, photographs, and furniture that challenge earlier scholarship around the Ottoman Empire.

Jonathan Trayte’s first solo show in the US, “Fruiting Habits,” features the sculptor’s quirky creations, arranged in a landscape that is equal parts fantasy and oddity. The intentionally strange exhibition includes a series of furniture-like beds, lamps, and tables—each designed with an unexpected twist—staged to create a Dr. Seuss-like home space.

Malick Sidibé’s “LOVE POWER PEACE” is a collection of past and previously unseen of photographs that creates a visual narrative of 1960s Mali. Often photographing his subjects in the midst of ceremonial acts or in public spaces of the recently decolonized nation, Sidibé’s work mirrors the attitude of the Malian youth and their self-representation during the country’s time of change.

“SEED” at Paul Kasmin Gallery
Now—August 10
Yvonne Force curated, “SEED,” an exploration of the complex relationship between sexuality and fertility, spirituality and mysticism, and the natural world. Playfully inspired by the expression “Oh my Goddess,” the exhibition includes work by 29 artists, featuring pieces like Loie Hollowell’s Beginning (inversed), Yoko Ono’s Door, and Lacey Dorn’s Blonde-Demand—a 360 degree “live Netflix” immersion, during which Dorn performs scenes from iconic blonde films in front of a green screen.

“Readymades Belong to Everyone” at the Swiss Institute
Now—August 19
“Readymades Belong to Everyone” is the inaugural exhibition at the Swiss Institute’s new location in the East Village. A group show featuring over 50 artists from 16 different countries, it is curated by Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen, offering a modern understanding of the readymade, its course through history, and how it has been mutated and accelerated in environments of commerce and control. In addition to 17 new commissioned works, “Readymades Belong to Everyone” includes pieces like Aldo Rossi’s Prototype for a Cabina and Rem Koolhaas’s Field Trip.
