1. Empty House Casa Vazia @ Luhring Augustine
June 27 — August 28
Luhring Augustine’s new sculpture exhibition features a cross-generational selection of Brazilian artists that engages with the doctrine and legacy of Neoconcretism. The movement, which emerged from Brazil in the 1950s, was a rebellion against the certainty of sculptural art, an effort to transform sculpture into a more profound reflection of complex modernity. Augustine’s exhibition provides and informative and stunning look into this major Brazilian artistic movement.
On display at 531 West 24th Street, New York NY.
2. Roger Brown @ Maccarone
June 25 — August 14
Virtual Still Life gathers 11 works from the late Roger Brown’s formative, eponymous period. This series of works, which Brown creted in the mid 1990s, was inspired by the rapid technilogical growth of the decade, during which virtual reality became ever-less virtual and all-the-more real. Brown examined this line between 2D and 3D realness by placing his distinctive patterned landscape paintings in interaction with similarly patterned and shaped thrift store ceramics. The resulting dynamic interaction examines the point where virtuality ends and our physical world begins.
On display at 630 Greenwich St, New York NY.
3. Dream House @ Dia:Chelsea
June 16 — October 24
Thirty-six years after exhibiting Dream House in New York City, Dia Art Foundation is filling their Chelsea location with their newly acquired, site-specific iteration of House. The installation is a key work in the ongoing collaboration between artists La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, who created this iteration with their “disciple” Jung Hee Choi. Dia Foundation describes the Dream House work, which has been displayed at a variety of institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as “…a continuous frequency environment in sound and light, in which a work would be played continuously and ultimately exist in time as a living organism…”
On view at 535 W 22nd St, New York NY.
