It's September! The art world is awakening from it's summer lounging, and we have a LOT to see this month. Be sure to share any shows with us: you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is just the tip of the iceberg:
Very excited for Nick Cave at Jack Shainman Gallery, 9/4-10/11. "The series comprises sculptures that incorporate found ceramic dogs sitting on furniture within elaborate grottos or dreamlike dens."
Photographer Stephen Shore at 303 Gallery will "present two new bodies of work realized in zones of itinerant conflict. In a series of images made in Israel and the West Bank and in Ukraine," 9/11- 11/1.
It'll be the last month to see Flotsdam/Jetsdam, a collaboration between Patty Chang and David Kelley at MoMA, closes 9/28. "Exploring what they describe as “the intersection of site and the imaginary,” the work of Patty Chang and David Kelley merges performance, photography, and digital video. Set near the Three Gorges Dam, on China’s Yangtze River, Flotsam Jetsam is inspired by a broad collection of sources: Chairman Mao’s much-publicized swims in the river, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, journalistic accounts of China’s rapid economic development, and Western ideas about Asian modernization."
It will also be the last month to see Gary Winogrand's photos at the Met this month if you haven't see them yet! Read this review by Jerry Saltz before you go.
In more photography shows, Justine Kurland will show called Sincere Auto Care, a series at Mitchell-Innes and Nash depicting: "Cars, the culture of the mechanic and the open road are Kurland's subjects, drawing on her twelve years of experience with life on the road. The photographs in Sincere Auto Care balance two competing narratives: the car as an aspirational symbol of freedom, sex, the American Dream, and the bleaker daily life behind the scenes." 9/4-10/11.
Cue Art Foundation presents DINA KELBERMAN: WHAT IS IN IT, her first solo show in New York City. September 6 - October 10, 2014, with an opening reception Saturday, September 6th, 6-8pm.
David Zwirner will be showing new works by Tomma Abts, starting 9/10, through 10/25.
We are looking forward to seeing what the first BRIC Biennial has in store! About the series:
"In fall 2014 BRIC will launch a major new initiative, the BRIC Biennial. These exhibitions will present the work of emerging and mid-career visual artists working across artistic media, with each edition focusing on different areas of Brooklyn. The first Biennial this fall will survey artists based in downtown Brooklyn and adjacent neighborhoods, a fitting focus given the location of BRIC House in downtown Brooklyn at the edge of Fort Greene, traditionally, an important cultural center in Brooklyn. This exhibition series intends to demonstrate the rich wealth of talent to be found throughout Brooklyn."
The biennial opens on September 19th.
Véronique Gambier: Exposed Square is up at Trestle Gallery in Brooklyn from September 2 - October 3. There will be an opening reception this Friday, September 5, 7-9 pm.
And don't forget about First Thursdays in DUMBO! Tomorrow night, September 4th, galleries will be open until 9PM, including a new one! Masters Projects opens with a group show called Lost Carcosa.
