1. Robert Rauschenberg @ Pace Gallery
October 23 — December 12
In the Pace’s first show since assuming representation of Rauschenberg Foundation earlier this year, the gallery has gathered pieces from the late artist’s 1990’s Anagram, Arcadian Retreat and Anagram (A Pun) series. The works represent Rauschenberg’s return to the screen print and image transfer processes that characterized his work in the 1950s and 60s. Viewers glimpse Rauschenberg re-engaging with his most classic media, now infused with the international perspective he gained in his world travels of the 80s and 90s.

2. Louise Fishman @ Cheim & Read
October 22 — November 21
Louise Fishman’s large paintings (some measuring over 6 feet tall) are infused with the artist’s own experiences and artistic process, the time “between inspiration and realization.” The works in her new solo exhibition with Cheim & Read similarly cary the the marks of both the artist and experiences that created them. However, they also engage with a new struggle, finding their expression in the diametric tension between organic, abstract content and a larger effort to structure or organize this composition.
3. Rineke Dijkstra @ Marian Goodman Gallery
October 20 — December 19
Through her photographic portraits and later video works, Dijkstra captures the pivotal transition from childhood to adulthood. Her works radiate with the personal, compassionate rapport she establishes with her subjects to effect a depiction of youth that is both personal and authentic. And, in its first presentation in the U.S., Dijkstra’s the Gymschool, St Petersburg, engages with this idea of personal transition by focusing on the rehearsals of young Russian rhythmic gymnasts. The film, commissioned in 2014 for the Manifesta Biennial of Contemporary Art, will be accompanied by photographic portraits of the gymnasts as well.
