Matt Hansel - Giving Up The Ghost @ The Hole NYC
In Giving Up the Ghost Hansel exhibits three types of work that are from the same meditation on art history and the role of the painter in modern life; shaped canvas still lifes, ocean paintings and half-painted canvasses.
NOMEN - American Women Artists from 1945 to Today @ Phillips
The Guerrilla Girls' 1989 headliner "Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?" still stands as a relative test of female-to-male participation in museum permanent collections and exhibitions nationwide. NOMEN alters that, at least temporarily, by specifically excluding works of art by men. NOMEN is an attempt to look at recent art history through the exceptional works made by American women artists from 1945 to today.
Jonas Wood @ Gagosian
In his boldly colored graphic works, Wood combines art historical references with images of the objects, interiors, and people that comprise the fabric of his daily life. Translating the three-dimensional world around him into pure color and line, he confounds expectations of scale and vantage point, causing the flat picture plane to bristle with an abstract charge.
