Top Exhibitions Opening this Week in NY (Feb. 3 – Feb. 9, 2014)

By Olivia Swider

February 5, 2014


Julije Knifer at Mitchell-Innes & Nash
February 6 – March 15
Opening: February 6, 6-8pm
534 West 26th Street
The exhibition will be the first ever solo show of Knifer’s work in the United States, and will include work from the early 1960s through the 2000’s. Knifer is recognized as one of the most Croatian painters of the 20th century. Growing out of the Russian school of Supremist painters, Knifer applied proto-conceptual practices to abstract painting.

Doug Wheeler at David Zwirner
February 6 – March 29
537 West 20th Street
Known for the seminal light environments that he developed in the 1960s and 70s, Wheeler will present a new type of installation that he calls “a rotational horizon work,” which will occupy the ground floor gallery. Connected visually and conceptually to his previous works, this immersive environment will emphasize the viewer’s physical experience of space, focusing attention on the way light almost imperceptibly changes along the horizon as the earth turns.


“Re-View: Onnasch Collection” at Hauser & Wirth
February 7 – April 12
Opening: February 7, 6-8pm
511 West 18th Street
The exhibition focuses on the period between 1950 and 1970, decades when New York’s cultural influence was unrivaled and some of the most important artistic movements of the 20th-century were born. On view will be iconic examples of Pop Art, Fluxus, Color Field, Assemblage, Minimalism, and Abstract Expressionism. “Re-View: Onnasch Collection” is curated by Paul Schimmel.

Richard Tuttle: “Looking for the Map” at Pace Gallery
February 7 – March 15
32 East 57th Street
Pace Gallery will present new studies and drawings created in preparation for the artist’s upcoming commission for Tate Modern’s renowned Turbine Hall in October 2014. This year will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Richard Tuttle’s first solo exhibition in New York.

Sarah Cain: “Burning Bush” at Galerie Lelong
February 7 – March 15
Opening: February 7, 6-8pm
528 West 26th Street
Featuring a new body of mixed-media works on canvas and a site-specific installation, Cain further expands her exploration of painting and space through her use of disparate materials ranging from beads, safety pins, Mylar balloons, paint rollers, and other found objects.

Michel Majerus at Matthew Marks Gallery
February 8 – April 19
Opening: February 7, 6-8pm
522 West 22nd Street & 526 West 22nd Street & 502 West 22nd Street
The exhibition includes over twenty-five paintings and multimedia installations by the late Berlin-based artist, whose promising career was cut short by a plane crash at age 35. Majerus samples from popular culture and art history, redeploying canonical styles alongside graphics borrowed from youth subcultures and the commercial mainstream.

“Sculpture” at Matthew Marks Gallery
February 8 – April 19
Opening: February 7, 6-8pm
523 West 24th Street
The exhibition features recent works by Katharina Fritsch, Robert Gober, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Martin Puryear, and Charles Ray, all of which are being show publicly for the first time.


Diana Al-Hadid and Medardo Rosso at Marianne Boesky Gallery
February 8 – March 22
Opening: February 8, 6 – 8 pm
118 East 64th Street
Diana Al-Hadid’s complex sculptures and panels, created from plaster and paint, test our spatial and conceptual boundaries. Alongside her works will be pieces by Medardo Rosso, whose work resonates with Al-Hadid.


Davide Balliano: “Four o Four” at Room East
February 9 – March 9
Opening: February 9, 6-8pm
41 Orchard Street
With a background in performance, painting and sculpture, he has created gilded wooden reliefs and multi-paneled incised with a detailed pattern of bricks. The works possess the anthropological potency of relics and the meditative force of religious icons.
