For the first time since 1971, Lynda Benglis' melting, phosphorescent Phantom will appear in public. Her New Museum retrospective puts breadth and substance behind the artist's much-debated (and maligned) '74 Artforum advertisement, in which she poses naked with a double-headed dildo. Meanwhile a group show featuring her longtime collaborator Robert Morris opens at Chelsea's Lehmann Maupin in an exhibition inspired by the parallax effect.
Jim Dine adds ten new Heart paintings to his collection at the Pace Gallery, exploring the symbol as an abstract shape, while Martin Kersel exposes his Charms, Stacks & Flotsam at Mitchell-Innes and Nash.
How do we express, emote, and communicate through the media and in art? And, more importantly, who understands? Visit the Guggenheim for Found in Translation, an exhibition about globalization that looks back on social history and current political issues.
Lynda Benglis' formless monstrosities peel from the walls and crevices of the New Musem in her first museum retrospective in over twenty years. Gender-bending figures, fragmented body parts, and rare photographic work... With her unique combination of sensuousness and punk attitude, her work continues to challenge the norms and influence many generations of artists.
Martin Kersel's negative silhouettes juxtapose precious handling of line with impassioned use of color. WIth his simple, delicate drawings he creates a world in which objects and characters of outlandish shapes and sizes populate an American landscape of pop music, suburbia, and screwball comedy. At Mitchell-Innes & Nash in Chelsea.
In ten new paintings from 2010, Jim Dine's iconic heart - an image that he has returned to for more than forty years - becomes a canvas for new experiments with process and the material qualities of paint. At the Pace Gallery.
Using one of the world's largest collections of vintage paint-by-number paintings as inspiration, Trey Speegle explores themes of hope, love, longing and transformation by using affirmations, double entendre, and word play that resonate with a broad Pop appeal. Limited edition puzzles and plates complement Speegle's career spanning commercial and fine art. At Benrimon Contemporary in Chelsea.
