Critical 5 art events this week in NYC: opening this weekend, Jan. 24- 27
With everything that's constantly going on in New York, sometimes it's hard to stay ahead of the curve. We're here to help you stay on top of it all (art related, that is).
Here is what's opening this weekend. Go get 'em, you trend setter, you.
Opening this Thursday, James Drones-Iconograffiti showcases iconic pieces of art that have been re-imagined into something fresh and original while remaining familiar.
Michel Nafziger's first solo New York show, Revelations is a photographic survey of the nude female body. No naked jokes, alright? Opens Friday.
Think of this one as a re-opening of sorts. Created in the early 1990's, Deborah Kass' My Elvis which featured Barbra Streisand at her most glamorous and simultaneously in her role for the movie Yentl is now My Elvis + with additions of her first and last self-portraits. Check out this blast from the past on Thursday night.
On Friday night, artist Meghan Boody will be leading an informal, topical talk within the museum's galleries. Curated by Assistant Curator Beth Citron and a unique chance to rub elbows and intellectual chitter chatter with an established artist.
Before you head over to the Rubin Museum of Art check out another artist talk at MoMA. Franz Erhard Walther will be present in the galleries for a special presentation of First Work Set (1963-69), one of the first American museum exhibitions that encouraged artists to make on-site installations. Mr. Walther was present at the original exhibition and now once again joins us. Groovy.
