1. Eduardo Paolozzi @ Clearing
September 3 — November 1
British artist Eduardo Paolozzi assembled artwork from common (often commercial) objects and images. In this way, Paolozzi’s work simultaneously captures society as it was, vibrant and real rather than idealized, and acts as a key precursor to and influencer on the Pop Art movement. Opening today, Clearing’s exhibition of the surrealist’s art demonstrates how Paolozzi’s socially aware works interacted and overlapped with Pop Art. The show includes several cast-aluminum sculptures as well as two of the artist’s portfolios, from 1969 and 1974–1976.
On view at 396 Johnson Avenue, Brooklyn NY.
2. Gordon Matta-Clark @ David Zwirner
September 9 — October 24
David Zwirner’s new exhibit showcases the lesser known drawings of Gordon Matta-Clark’s oeuvre, most known for its photographs and architectural cuts. The drawings offer a glimpse into the lesser known side of one of the most influential American oeuvres of the 1970s while themselves spanning an engaging variety of categories. From calligraphy to notebook entries to 3D reliefs, the works offer a dynamic, personal perspective on an important American artist.
On view at 537 West 20th Street, New York NY.
3. Jackie Saccoccio @ Eleven Rivington
September 9 — October 18
Some of Jackie Saccoccio’s most recent paintings will be on display at Eleven Rivington beginning September 9. Saccoccio’s creates rich, vibrant abstract paintings. They engage viewers both with their incredible colors as well as the layered textures that Saccoccio creates while painting, allowing multiple stages of the painting process to simultaneously shine through in the finished piece. Saccoccio has described her own oeuvre as a “psychological form of Cubism,” one canvas containing multiple temporal (rather than spatial) points of view.
On view at 11 Rivington St, New York NY.
