Premier Gallery Exhibition

Now that the semester is in full swing I am prioritizing must-see gallery shows for the fall. An exhibition at Hauser & Wirth - a recent and exciting addition to the New York art gallery scene - is at the top of my list! Three contemporary artists have been commissioned to reinterpret Allen Kaprow's famous work from his 1961 New York "happenings" on their 50th anniversary. In addition to the date, historically significant to this artistic recreation is the location. The space where Kaprow's Environment Yard originally appeared (formerly the Martha Jackson Gallery) is now occupied by the Hauser & Wirth gallery.

Museum round-up

The art scene these days is certainly a busy one - there have been non-stop openings and events for the past couple of weeks and I must say I've been very excited. While I've spent much of my energy focused on the great gallery shows happening, there are in fact quite a few museum exhibitions of note:
