Sterling Ruby: “SUNRISE SUNSET” at Hauser & Wirth
May 9 – July 25
511 West 18th Street
The works on view in “SUNRISE SUNSET” represent the many modes of the artist’s production but play upon a central motif: a tension between the horizon lines of the artist’s monumental paintings, and the circular forms in primary colors that are found in a mobile, the collages, and sculptures. These circles suggest celestial bodies, presenting a personal cosmology for Roby.

Rebecca Horn: “The Vertebrae Oracle” at Sean Kelly Gallery
May 10 – June 21
Opening: May 9, 6-8pm

Opening: May 10, 6-8pm
522 West 21st Street
In paintings completed over the last three years, including some of his largest works to date, Brown confronts traditional subjects of still life and portraiture. With characteristically fleshy textures beneath remarkably flat and glossy surfaces, the scenes evoke traditional memento mori.
