Top NYC Exhibitions Opening This Week (March 25 – 31)

By Olivia Swider

March 27, 2013

TUESDAY

Luther Price: “Tom Rhoads” at The Kitchen
Opening: March 26, 7PM
512 West 19th Street
Dirty Looks present a screening of three films from the late 1980s by Tom Rhoads, one of the artistic alter egos of filmmaker Luther Price. Before making his infamous film Sodom (1989), Price invented different personae, living these roles in order to execute a breadth of artistic projects. Tom Rhoads marked his first foray into filmmaking.

THURSDAY

Thomas Ruff: “photograms and ma.r.s.” at David Zwirner
March 28 – May 4
Opening: March 28, 6-8PM
525 West 19th Street
Thomas Ruff’s new photograms depict abstract shapes, lines, and spirals in seemingly random formations with varying degrees of transparency and illumination. Their compositions are reminiscent of artistic experimentation with camera-less photography in the 1920s, where objects were placed directly on photo-sensitive paper and exposed to light, creating white or gray silhouetted wherever they made contact.

Peter Piller: “Umschläge” at Andrew Kreps Gallery
March 28 – May 18
Opening: March 28, 6-8PM
525 West 22nd Street
Translated as “envelopes,” the title of the show refers to one of two bodies of work in this exhibition comprised of the pairing of the front and back images of the East German military magazine Armeerundschau, which always featured armored vehicles on the front and pin-up girls on the back. Piller has been working with found images for over 20 years and has created and worked with the archive as medium –and the re-interpretation and the re-presentation of images already published in other contexts.

“Meshes of the Afternoon” at Sean Kelly

Opening: March 28, 6-8PM
475 Tenth Avenue
A group exhibition of paintings by Cecily Brown, Kaye Donachie, Lars Elling, Valérie Favre, Pawel Ksiazek, David Salle, Lu Song and Thomas Zipp.

Atlas, Kahrs, Mucha, Whiteread at Luhring Augustine
March 29 – April 27
Opening: No reception.
31 West 24th Street

25 Knickerbocker Avenue, Brooklyn
The works included in the exhibition engage a concern shared by the four artists in examining the nature of memory and the shaping of collective and individual histories. Works by Charles Atlas, Johannes Kahrs, Reinhard Mucha and Rachel Whiteread will be on view in both Chelsea and Bushwick locations.

Scott Olson at Wallspace
March 29 May 4
Opening: March 29, 6-8PM
619 West 27th Street
Scott Olson’s painting practice is rooted in a deep fascination with painting’s materials, tools, and history, but also in performance, music and improvisation. Painting on a restricted scale, Olson pours, rubs, squeegees and sands his paints onto a marble-dust-onwood substrate, which in turn records these actions as they perform and unfold on its surface. This will be his first exhibition with Wallspace.
