Top Exhibitions Opening This Week in New York (Jan. 6 – 12)

By Olivia Swider

January 8, 2014

WEDNESDAY

Martha Mysko at Marc Straus
January 8 – February 16
Opening: January 8, 6-8pm
299 Grand Street
Martha Mysko’s sculptures and installations initially appear to be the sites of domestic chaos. Her sculpture is made of everyday recognizable furnishings: couches, trellises, linoleum, mirrors, carpets and more. They are cultural debris, the “things” in our space that often have lost their visual value.

THURSDAY

“Hooray for HOLLYwood!” at Mixed Greens & Pavel Zoubok Gallery
January 9 – February 8
Opening: January 9, 6-8pm
531 West 26th Street, Floor 1 & 2
Celebrating Holly Solomon – collector, dealer, style icon – and her groundbreaking gallery which launched major career over its 30-year history. “Hooray for Hollywood!” features important works representing the gallery’s 30-year history and pays homage to the program that launched major careers and influenced subsequent generations of artists. Participating artists include Mary Heilmann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Gordon Matta-Clark, Richard Noonas, Nam June Paik, William Wegman, Joe Zucker, and many more.

Stan Douglas: “Luanda-Kinshasa” at David Zwirner
January 9 – February 22
Opening: January 9, 6-8pm
525 West 19th Street
For Stan Douglas’s 12th solo at David Zwirner, the artist will debut a new film set in a reconstruction of the Columbia 30th Street Studio. This legendary recording studio, known as one of the finest in the world, was opened in 1949 by Columbia Records in an abandoned Armenian church on East 30th Street between Second and Third Avenues in Manhattan.

Saul Fletcher at Anton Kern Gallery
January 9 – February 15
532 West 20th Street

For his seventh solo show at Anton Kern Gallery, English artist Saul Fletcher is presenting a new body of work, 30 photographs all taken inside the artist’s new abode in Berlin, Germany, in 2013. A 56-page, fully illustrated catalog entitled 13 will be published in collaboration with Galerie Sabine Knust, Munich for the exhibition.

Richard Artschwager: “No More Running Man” at Gagosian Gallery
January 9 – February 22
Opening: January 9, 6-8pm
980 Madison Avenue
Gagosian New York will pay tribute to the late Richard Artschwager with an exhibition of his last works. Tickling many genres but cleaving to none, the art that Artschwager produced over the span of 50 years has been variously described as Pop art, because of its derivation from utilitarian objects and incorporation of commercial and industrial materials; as Minimal art, because of its geometric forms and solid presence; and as Conceptual art, due to its cool and cerebral detachment.

Stuart Hawkins: “Everyone Knows What It Looks Like” at Zach Feuer
January 9 – February 15
Opening: January 9, 6-8pm
548 West 22nd Street
In her most recent work, Stuart Hawkins renders scenes of a homogenized, global norm through her reinterpretation of traditional art historical genres. Highlighting consumerism as the common denominator, Hawkins underscores, by mode of comparison, critical aspects of the world we live in today.

Alex Prager: “Face in the Crowd” at Lehmann Maupin
January 9 – February 22
Opening: January 9, 6-8pm
201 Chrystie Street & 540 West 26th Street
Prager’s debut show at the gallery features large-scale photographs of ambitiously staged crowd scenes. The artist directed hundreds of actors to create images that recall shared memories from the past and present, which remain familiar yet eerie. Also on view is an immersive three-channel installation video of confessional monologues from characters in the crowd scenes.

FRIDAY

Thomas Struth at Marian Goodman Gallery
January 10 – February 22
Opening: January 9, 6-8PM
24 West 57th Street
Struth interrogates “the happiest place on Earth” in his new series about human imagination. Photographs of Disneyland expose the creepy and foreboding atmosphere that lies underneath the iconic Los Angeles theme park.

SATURDAY

Liz Glynn: “On the Possibility of Salvage” at Paula Cooper Gallery
January 11 – February 8
197 Tenth Avenue
For this exhibition, Glynn weaves together themes of salvage and piracy, centering on a room-sized sculpture of a ship’s hull in partial wreckage. Alluding to trade and trafficking, the shipwreck allows Glynn to tease out the stories of a motley collection of objects smuggled, seized, or recovered, with connections to illicit cargo and contraband.

SUNDAY

Lionel Maunz: “Deluge” at Bureau
January 12 – February 9
Opening: January 12, 6-8pm
178 Norfolk Street
“This show takes its title directly from a specific work of art: ‘The Deluge” by Paolo Uccello. It is a scene of destruction and chaos around the Ark showing drowning and foreshortened bodies looking for salvation from Noah,” states Bureau’s director Gabrielle Giattino. This is the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.
