“Paintings from the East” by Pat Steir is the latest installment of the artist’s well-known “Waterfall” series, exploring intention, chance, gravity, and control. The paintings reveal her intriguing technique of determination through mastering the base of her work, as well as chance, by dripping and throwing paint on the canvas.
“7-23-20” by Francesco Clemente (a neighbor and friend of Steir) is centered around the Coronavirus epidemic and the subsequent lockdown in New York City. It marks a significant shift from the artist’s traditional themes and motifs. Indeed, while Clemente’s work is usually marked by spiritual and transcendental themes, “7-23-20” aspires to capture the “here and now” of the reality of COVID-19 and the emotional implications of life in quarantine, alongside the social and political ills plaguing the United States.
“Bob Colacello: On The Road” is a photography-based exhibition that features a hand-picked selection of black-and-white photographs made by Colacello in the 1970s and ‘80s when he worked as editor of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. His photos present an eclectic diversity, as his travels as editor took him from places like the Amazon jungle to meetings with political figures.
