What are the most resonant works of art from the recent past?

Annette Messager – June 26 – August 24, 2012 – Marian Goodman Gallery

In this exhibition, Messager’s role as inventive collector and bricoleur of daily life in the practice of making sculpture transforms and takes on new forms as her works move from the dark whimsy of the domestic and familial to the illusory world of sci-fi invention and Swiftian imagination. In both, she presents a glimpse at an unseen, fossilized world.

Claxons: A group show curated by art critic Walter Robinson on view at Haunch of Venison

The show will feature works by ceramic artist Elisabeth Kley, glass artist John Drury, painter Robert Goldman and Robinson. The exhibition aims to present underrepresented artists with an idiosyncratic sensibility. The title of the show Claxons (or loud horns) refers to the idea that artists create dissonance and cacophony.

For women, rules define a set of social expectations that are meant to keep them under control. In the arts, purportedly so much more liberal than the rest of society, this problem is acutely magnified, since culture tells us who we are, both literally and imaginatively. For the exhibition In the Pink at Joe Sheftel Gallery, which focuses on art about the female body, curator Sarvia Jasso has brought together a group of younger women artists with women artists from earlier generations
