1. Albert Oehlen@ Gagosian Gallery
June 17 — September 4
Albert Oehlen has had quite a summer. Just this summer alone, the contemporary German painter was the subject of solo exhibitions at both the New Museum in New York and the Kunsthalle in Zurich, Switzerland. Gagosian’s new exhibition of one of the major artists of the moment offers a survey of Oehlen’s engagement with tree images, a motif he has investigated through works on both aluminum panels and paper. The show offers visitors a profound experience with Oehlen’s new series.
On view at 821 Park Avenue, New York, NY.
2. “Buy Photographs — Not Gold! and Other Works” @ Higher Pictures
September 2 — October 3
Higher Pictures’ new solo exhibition of Charles Swedlund focuses on the photographer’s works from the early 1970s. It was in these years that Swdlund explored the simultaneously playful, conceptual and documentary nature of photography. He pushed the boundaries of photographic media, using photos to create a range of peices including his famous flip books, puzzles and gumballs. Many of Swedlunds such works require participation from the viewer, incorporating him or her directly into the piece and creating a more immersive experience of his art.
On view at 980 Madison Ave, New York NY.
3. Little Annie @ Gavin Brown’s Enterprise
Little Annie (aka Annie Anxiety) trained herself in painting after establishing a successful career as a singer, songwriter, musician and poet. Now, in honor of the multi-disciplinary artist’s book release, Gavin Brown has assembled a 4 day, pop-up exhibition. The show includes some of her newest paintings, inspired by the vibrant colors and chaotic movements of her new hometown: Miami. And as an homage to the artist’s additional vocations, the September 1st opening will be accompanied by a special musical performance.
On view at 291 Grand St, New York, NY.
