Andrea Zittel: Fluid Panel State
Andrea Rosen Gallery (525 West 24th Street)
Thursday, September 13 | 6-8 pm
In this exhibition, Andrea Zittel addresses the slim differences between visual and functional objects including woven blankets, panels, and sheets. Zittel’s installation also includes gouache and watercolor drawings, paintings, new furniture pieces, and a video Power Point, among other works.
Whitney Museum (945 Madison Avenue)
“This retrospective of the Japanese artist takes care to highlight the more subtle side of her practice, with early paintings, collages, and performance documentation. But that’s not to say that it neglects the artist’s bombastic spot paintings and sexually charged nude happenings. The show demonstrates the sweep of a diverse career which has most recently produced a series of brightly-colored paintings reminiscent of a looser Keith Haring, on view in the final gallery.“ — Kyle Chayka, ARTINFO
On view through September 30, 2012.
