Upcoming in New York


mcginleyps1smOpening June 27 at PS 1 are shows that have me all excited. First off, courtesy of an ad in my $8 summer issue of Artforum, I know that Ryan McGinley has an exhibit of never before seen photos. According to the museum’s website, this work is a departure from the artist’s normal youth/drug/sex culture stuff. Really? From this image advertising the show (full page ad in Artforum) I pick up a lot of the same old same old vibe.

But who cares. Ryan McGinley is Ryan McGinley and a good photo is a good photo. I want to go. McGinley’s photos were in Philadelphia recently. See my post and my PW review for more on that.

Also at the museum, “Hard Light” which includes video artist Doug Aitken’s 2002 “Interiors” and works by Bruce Nauman,the Swiss team of Fischli and Weiss and others.

Interiors is a piece made when Aitken was in residence at the Fabric Workshop and Museum. Read. The multi-channel piece projected on a translucent scrim hung on a house-like frame, is outstanding and if you missed it in Philly, you MUST see it at PS 1.

The opening’s for all this is Sunday, June 27, 12-6 pm.
