Art critic Tabish Khan brings you the top art exhibitions to visit this week. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. All are closing soon and it’s been expanded to six exhibitions, because there are so many closing:
On view in the landmark building at 909 Madison Avenue where both galleries reside, “Germaine Richier” will present more than forty important sculptures ranging from early torsos and figures, to startling hybrids of humans crossed with bats, toads, spiders, and vegetal organisms, that brought the artist international recognition before her untimely death at the age of 57.
This is the first show to be shown in any gallery in America wholly devoted to celebrating this idiosyncratic art period which revolutionized the modern art scene in the 20th century. And what better gallery to present it to contemporary viewers than Blain/ Di Donna in New York located right in the pulse of todays International art scene?
