Sotheby’s Institute of Art | Gallery Shows to See in New York This Month

In New York City, the art never stops. Performa Biennial is in full swing, Ai Weiwei’s presence is everywhere, Barbara Kruger’s MetroCards have hit the streets, and new exhibitions have been opening at galleries across the city. Overwhelmed? Don’t be, the Sotheby’s Institute of Art has you covered. Here are a few of the best gallery shows to see this November.

Yayoi Kusama: Festival of Life and Infinity Nets
David Zwirner
Now through December 16

Yayoi Kusama, “The Spirits of Pumpkins Descended into the Heavens,” Infinity Mirror Room at The National Gallery in Singapore, 2017

She’s back! The wait for her NYC return may be over, but the long lines are just starting to form. New Yorkers, get ready to step inside the hallucinatory, fantasy world of the self-proclaimed modern-day Alice in Wonderland, Yayoi Kusama. The iconic artist continues her U.S. takeover on the heels of packed runs at The Broad in LA and The Hirshhorn in D.C. with several exhibitions taking place simultaneously in NYC. Famed “Infinity Mirror Rooms,” new sculptural work, and sixty-six paintings from her “My Eternal Soul” series are all on display in David Zwirner’s Chelsea locations, while the gallery’s newly-opened Upper East Side space presents the latest “Infinity Nets.” A few of Kusama’s paintings are also on view at the Judd Foundation through December 9.

Rashaad Newsome: Reclaiming Our Time
De Buck Gallery
Now through December 9

Collage, sculpture, dance, and video are some of the methods employed by Rashaad Newsome in raising questions of power and agency in his work. The artist’s current exhibition continues his line of inquiry into authorship and attribution, a path that has included a deconstruction of Madonna’s “Vogue” in the past, highlighting the dance form’s origins in the 1970’s queer ballroom community in Harlem. This time, Newsome focuses on Cubism and the movement’s West African influence that has been largely overlooked. The exhibition presents three-dimensional collages, an installation entitled, “Through the Looking Glass” as well as sculptural objects from the artist’s furniture collaboration with Vosay, an Afro-Brazilian firm. During the exhibition, Newsome’s new immersive performance piece “Running”will be presented at The Park Avenue Armory on November 7th.

Richard Prince: Ripple Paintings
Gladstone Gallery
Now through December 22

Richard Prince, “Ripple Paintings” at Gladstone Gallery, Installation View

The master of appropriation who used the Marlboro Man and Instagram posts as fodder for his creations has done it again. This time, the source of his material comes from the pages of a magazine, Playboy magazine to be exact. Created in the last two years, this new body of work is culled from the cartoons the artist ripped out of the vintage issues of the publication he purchased on eBay, all produced between 1967 and 1970. Why cartoons? “I love cartoons. Funny drawings. Serious humor. Subversive. Laugh out loud. Another way of surviving.” Prince plays not only with the subject matter but the watercolor method in which the cartoons were made, adding his own watercolor paint – in contrasting hues and multiple layers – to the torn out pages, creating ripples as a result.

ItalyPrice Upon Request | Rome, Italy | Italy Sotheby’s International Realty

Palazzo Sacchetti is a late Renaissance building among the most beautiful of Rome. Its construction was carried out in 1542 by Sangallo, the architect of Palazzo Farnese and coadjutor of Raffaello in the construction of St. Peter’s Basilica. Sangallo built it for himself, dedicating the last years of his life to make it the “perfect building.” In 1608, it was bought by the Archbishop of Naples, who built the chapel frescoed by Agostino Ciampelli. Later, in the second half of the 17th century It was purchased by the Marquis Sacchetti of Florence. Palazzo Sacchetti is a pearl in the heart of Rome; not surprisingly it has been used as a set for some scenes in the Oscar-winning film The Great Beauty, of which the eternal city is the real protagonist.
