9 Must-See Summer 2016 Group Shows

School is out and group shows are in.

It’s that time of year when the art world lapses into a lower gear and galleries tone down the intensity by embracing less intense summer schedules.

Another rite of passage we always look forward to? The more laid back gallery group shows, particularly the ones with inspiring titles that reflect some humor, creative flair, or downright wackyness. Here are a few of our top picks for the hot and hopefully lazier months ahead.

3. “The City & The City” at Denny Gallery
Denny Gallery’s group show is called “The City & The City” —a title borrowed from a 2009 novel by China Miéville in which two cities occupy the same geographic space but are deliberately perceived as separate. The theme resonates in particular on the Lower East Side—where in Chinatown, young gentrifiers, immigrant communities, a gallery district, and an entertainment district manage to occupy the same space.

The show will feature works by Trudy Benson, John Dante Bianchi, Ghost of a Dream, Nicolas Grenier, Justine Hill, Erin O’Keefe, Caris Reid, Jordan Tate, Russell Tyler, and Amanda Valdez.

Location: 150 East Broadway (Summer pop-up space)
Dates: June 29–August 19
