The Season Opening also marks the opening of To Be Of Use, a solo exhibition by David Shrigley in the Newmark Gallery, featuring a performance using Shrigley’s Problem Guitars by Melissa Auf der Maur, Arone Dyer, and Rebecca Ruth Borrer at 3 p.m.
Opening on May 25 are outdoor sculptures by Andrea Bowers, Sarah Braman, Atelier Van Lieshout, Matthew Geller, Goshka Macuga, Virginia Overton, Arlene Shechet, Brian Tolle, and Christopher Wool. In the Architecture Fields, the Summer Season Opening inaugurates newly installed pavilions by Yolande Daniels, Hou de Sousa, Aleksandr Mergold, and BASE Studio.
The exhibition season also includes solo exhibitions in the Newmark Gallery by Katherine Bernhardt, Tschabalala Self, and Francesca DiMattio, and a new commission from Abigail DeVille.
