“Diane Arbus: In the Park” is the first show of its kind, looking at the artist’s images of Washington Square and Central Park in New York.

ED RUSCHA at Gagosian
May 6–June 30
Gagosian Gallery at 980 Madison Avenue in New York will open “Custom-Built Intrigue: Drawings 1974—1984,” an exhibition of key text drawings by Ed Ruscha, on May 6. Open through June 30, the exhibition includes drawings dating from that period that incorporate text like, “THERMOMETERS SHOULD LAST FOREVER,” “HE ENJOYS THE CO. OF WOMEN,” and “SHE SURE KNEW HER DEVOTIONALS.” Also on view is one work on paper from 1986 that is exemplary of a shift in his practice by reintroducing the element of illusionary space. Many of the works in the show have been brought together thanks to various loans from private and public collections.

IMAGINARY ANCESTORS at Almine Rech
May 2–June 14
This two-part group show looks at Primitivism in modern and contemporary art. The first part features Fang sculptures alongside work by André Derain and Max Pechstein, in a restaging of Durand-Ruel Gallery’s 1933 exhibition “Early African Heads and Statues from the Gabon Pahouin Tribes.” The second will showcase work from artists including Mark Grotjahn, Ana Mendieta, and James Turrell, with primitive pieces from the personal collections of Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and David Smith.
