THURSDAY

Al Held: “Alphabet Paintings” at Cheim & Read
February 28 – April 20
Opening: February 28, 6-8PM
547 West 25th Street
Curated from several private collections, the show presents a unique opportunity to see first-hand the geometric, “hard-edge” works that defined Held’s artistic output for almost a decade.

Untitled

Titus Kaphar: “The Vesper Project” at Friedman Benda
February 28 – April 6
Opening: February 28, 6-8PM
515 West 26th Street
The exhibition is a massive sculptural statement—an encompassing installation, in which Titus Kaphar’s own work is seamlessly woven into the walls of a 19th-century American house.

Will Ryman: “America” at Paul Kasmin Gallery
February 28 – March 30
Opening: February 28, 6-8PM
515 West 27th Street
America is inspired by the artist’s personal methodological exploration of the origins of capitalism within the scope of American history. Ryman uses found objects ranging from consumer products to industrial and hardware materials, to create masterful and intricate sculptures.

Peter Hujar at Pace/Macgill Gallery
February 28 – April 20
Opening: February 28, 5:30-7:30PM
32 East 57th Street
A cult figure in 1980s downtown New York, and succumbing himself to a tragically early death by AIDS in 1987, Hujar’s work has become posthumously celebrated. The gallery will present a selection of Hujar’s iconic black and white nudes, portraits, and animals in an inaugural exhibition.  

2013

Gianni Colombo at Greene Naftali
February 28 – March 30
Opening: February 28, 6-8PM
508 West 26th Street
Exhibition of artwork pending.

FRIDAY

Ships

Wolfgang Laib: “Without Beginning and Without End” at Sperone Westwater
March 1 – March 30
Opening: March 1, 6-8PM
257 Bowery
For the artist’s seventh solo show at the gallery, Laib continues to employ natural materials, such as beeswax and rice, organic elements selected for the purity and symbolic meaning.

Jeff Olsson: “A Fair Deal” at Jack Hanley Gallery
March 1 – March 31
Opening: March 1, 6-8PM
327 Broome Street
Olsson’s drawings in graphite and charcoal seduce the viewer into the remote wilderness. Figures are rendered with delicate graphite lines and powdery white highlights, going about mundane tasks bathed in an ethereal glow.

2012

Virginia Overton at Mitchell-Innes & Nash
March 1 – April 6
Opening: March 1, 6-8PM
534 West 26th Street
Overton has become known for her site-responsive installations and sculptures made with quotidian materials.  An ethos of ‘economy’ is an organizing principal in her work; Overton uses principles of simplicity and problem-solving familiar to DIY-ers, farmers and small-time inventors.  This is Overton’s first solo exhibition with Mitchell-Innes & Nash.
