Rita Ackermann: “Negative Muscle” at Hauser & Wirth
March 5 – April 20, 2013
Opening: March 5, 6-8PM
32 East 69th Street
In Rita Ackermann’s art, the systematic and the accidental are kept in a state of constant dialogue and debate. Balance and the effort to achieve it have become the main focus of her process, and a kind of magical flux has become both the subject and condition of her art. Nowhere is the alchemy of Ackermann’s work more vivid than in the group of seventeen paintings made between the years of 2010 and 2013 and presented in Negative Muscle.

WEDNESDAY

March 8 – May 4
Opening: March 7, 6-8PM
534 West 25th Street
Pace’s first exhibition of the young Romanian artist Adrian Ghenie, known for his meticulously-crafted, often brutal paintings that build upon the darker moments of European history, particularly social and political abuses of power, his personal history, and the collective memory of society.

F(RE)E PLAY at Stadium
March 7 – April 6
Opening: March 7, 6-9PM
548 West 28th Street
The works presented investigate the cognitive experience of beauty. According to Kant, the difference between ordinary and aesthetic cognition was that in the latter case there isn’t a definite concept that fixes our intuition. Thus our imagination is granted a harmonious “free play” to understand what is beautiful, and find within it a message that please ourselves. Artists include: Conor Backman, Andy Meerow, Landon Metz, Jordan Tate, Keith J. Varadi. Curated by James Michael Shaffer, Jr.

Opening: March 8, 6-8PM

“22 Others” is a conceptual art project created by Mary Beth Edelson between 1971 and 1973 with the intention to both expand the artist’s connections with her community by inviting others into her art making process and experimenting with Carl Jung’s construct of the collective unconscious. Forty years after Edelson’s initial installment of 22 Others in Washington D.C., this historical exhibition is restaged for its New York debut at the Suzanne Geiss Company. Organized by Tim Goossens.
