Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again

Opening November 12, at the Whitney Museum of Art, Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, is sure to be a crowd pleaser. So much so, that tickets have already gone on sale four months early. The exhibition hopes to focus on the areas of his career where he was experimental but will offer a broad look into his extensive oeuvre spanning from 1950s illustration to paintings made in the ’80s. A catalogue with a text from deputy director and senior curator Donna De Salvo is also available for pre-order.

On view at the Whitney from Nov 12, 2018, to March 31, 2019.

Wolfgang Tillmans, How likely is it that only I am right in this matter?

In his third solo exhibition with David Zwirner, Berlin-based artist Wolfgang Tillmans is showing photographs, a spoken-word piece, and a video and sound installation. Those who follow Tillmans on Instagram will know that his feed is political in nature and that he’s also been performing—the face and voice of a band. That alone has created additional intrigue, and the show at David Zwirner should provide a varied body of work that demonstrates the ways he’s been thinking.

On view at David Zwirner Gallery through October 20.

Richard Bernstein: Fame

Since his return to SoHo, Jeffrey Deitch has organized high-quality exhibitions at both his Grand Street and Wooster Street locations. While still having a finger on the pulse of contemporary art, his shows no longer focus on the downtown hipster scene as much they once did, and if they do…it’s somehow less underground. However, as a return to downtown, Richard Bernstein: Fame opened on September 7 at the Wooster Street space. Bernstein created covers for Warhol’s Interview magazine from 1972-1989. His stylized renderings of celebrities are distinct and his subjects over the years included Brooke Shields, Debbie Harry, Madonna, and others.

On view at Deitch Projects’ Wooster Street location through October 28.

Punch, curated by Nina Chanel Abney

Also at Deitch Projects, at their Grand Street location is a group exhibition curated by Nina Chanel Abney. Over the last few years, Abney who shows with Jack Shainman Gallery in New York has made and exhibited work that is in high demand. This group show brings together a selection of artists who all use figuration in one way or another, including Derrick Adams, Katherine Bernhardt, Cheyenne Julien, Koichi Sato, and others. She looks towards her peers to dissect and also create a dialogue between pop culture, society and how the body is translated and seen now.

On view at Deitch Projects’ Grand Street location through October 27.

Peter Halley: New York New York

Lever House Art Collection curator Roya Sachs brings the art of Peter Halley in what promises to be an immersive installation to Lever House in Midtown. The artist will occupy the ground floor lobby as well as the cantilevered band of windows which span the circumference of the second floor. Halley has made six new, large-scale paintings which will be shown along with other architectural interventions and is also utilizing yellow window film and lights to generate an atmosphere and invisible sculpture of sorts.

On view at Lever House from September 20.  

Mentions:

A Human is an immersive, theatrical art experience produced by Society of Spectacle, a live entertainment storytelling brand founded by Simon Huck and directed by Michael Counts. A. Human uses set design, technology, prosthetics, live actors and more. A. Human is open for four weeks only, running through September 30. The event will be open every day except Tuesdays during the month and ticket purchase is recommended in advance.

Tub Shots by Don Herron showcases a series of portraits of famous artists in their bathtubs, taken in New York during the ’80s. Keith Haring, Cookie Mueller, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Peter Berlin are among the 65 artists pictured. Tub Shots is on show at Daniel Cooney gallery through November 3.
