Untitled Opening: June 20, 7-9PM
Zach Feuer Opening: June 20, 6-8PM
30 Orchard Street & 548 West 22nd Street
Untitled and Zach Feuer invite you to join them as part of their summer long foray into the contemporary work of America’s Jews in their natural habitats – the Lower East Side and Chelsea – and help make all of our mothers kvell.  Over 60 artists are participating including: Joshua Abelow, Diane Arbus, Dan Graham, Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Philip Guston, Eva Hesse, Deborah Kass, Alex Katz, Daniel Lefcourt, Jennifer Rubell, Joel Sternfeld, Hannah Wilke and Dan Colen.


“No Name” at On Stellar Rays
June 20 – July 25
Opening: June 20, 6-8PM
133 Orchard Street
The artists in “No Name” refuse to be pinned down or labeled, and their work cannot be described coherently.  Instead of paintings or sculpture they create gestures, memories and detritus.  The results refuse quotation marks, but demand air quotes—flimsy hatch marks made of helium or neon that may fly away, sizzle out or explode.

“Sunsets and Pussy” at Marianne Boesky Gallery
June 20 – August 16
Opening: June 20, 6-8PM
509 West 24th Street
This exhibition brings together  two classic themes of summer wonder —so saccharine and ubiquitous we forget their awesome power.  Spanning three generation, artists  Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith,  Betty Tompkins, and Piotr Uklanski each engage in the delight of exposing the cliched beauty and banality inherent in these timeless images.

Paul McCarthy and Damon McCarthy: “Rebel Dabble Babble” at Hauser & Wirth
June 20 – July 26
Opening: June 20, 6-8PM
511 West 18th Street
“Rebel Dabble Babble” is a collaboration between Paul McCarthy and his son Damon McCarthy.  The McCarthys present a large and complex installation and video projection work originally inspired by both Nicholas Ray’s 1955 classic Hollywood film “Rebel Without a Cause” and the furious rumors that swirled around the off-set relationships between its director and his stars James Dean, Natalie Wood, and Sal Mineo.

“Noa Noa” at Metro Pictures
June 20 – August 2
Opening: June 20, 6-8PM
519 West 24th Street
Metro Pictures presents “Noa Noa,” an exhibition presenting eight American and European artists whose work incorporates the aesthetics of the exotic.  The problematic history of cultural exoticism, as manifested in art, reflected Western imperialist and patriarchal attitudes toward Eastern or so-called primitive cultures.  The list of artists are as follows: Nina Beier, Verena Dengler, Sam Falls, Alex Israel, Tobias Madison & Emanuel Rossetti, Adrien Missika, Missika and Willem de Rooij.


“Mixed Message Media” at Gladstone Gallery
June 21 – August 2
Opening: June 20, 6-8PM
515 West 24th Street
Featuring work by 15 artists, the exhibition explores the mutable nature of materials, highlighting the  way in which which even the most objective realities contain an inherent subjectivity.   The artist included in the exhibition are: Darren Bader, Claudia Comte, Lara Favaretto, Piero Golia, Bruno  Jakob, Jiri Kovanda, Tony Labat, Renata Lucas, Dylan Lynch, Cinthia Marcelle, Dominic Nurre, Alex Perweller, Wilfredo Prieto, Zachary Susskind, and Kaari Upson.


Nicht, dass wir Ihnen das wirklich gönnen würden

Kyle Thurman at Room East
June 23 – August 4
Opening: June 23, 6-8PM
41 Orchard Street
An exhibition of new work by Kyle Thurman will feature a group of process-based paintings made with pigment reclaimed from dyed flowers, and sculptures of wooden wind chimes stripped of their function. The artist’s first solo exhibition, it takes decision-making and its relationship to the construction of works as its primary theme.
