This Week’s Must-See Art Events: Gallery Armageddon

By Paddy Johnson, Michael Anthony Farley, Rea McNamara on January 4, 2016

Those who thought they’d ease into the work week after the holiday break will be sorely disappointed. Nearly every gallery in the city has an opening. Between the Abrons Art Center’s American Realness Festival opening this week and a rash of Chelsea and Lower East Side shows, your calendar will be full. And not just with the usual crap. Painter Jane Corrigan will debut fresh new figurative paintings at Feuer/Mesler—it’s her first solo show in two years. Grids, systems and minimalism take over The Kitchen, Cheim & Read and Lesley Heller, all in unrelated shows. And for those following all the climate change stories, Dana Sherwood’s exhibition at Denny Gallery focuses on our destruction of the earth. Assuming we survive long enough to see the show, it should be illuminating.


Denny Gallery, 261 Broome Street, New York, NY, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Dana Sherwood: Crossing the Wild Line

In 2013 Dana Sherwood produced an image essay for us that included items from her home such as her dog Hera, a silk velvet dress from the 40’s and taxidermieddeer, rabbits, horses, birds, foxes, squirrels, bats and a hazelnut mouse. Definitely a unique list.

Needless to say, when we heard she was having a show at Denny Gallery we got excited. Through drawing, video, and sculptural installations Sherwood explores “Anthropocene”, a term that describes our current epoch—one that begins with the advent of significant man-made pollution. We expect this show will have all the qualities of her STUFF image essay—obsessive, smart, and socially-conscious.
