Summer Round-Up: NYC Art to Look Out For
From architectural innovations to celebrating emerging queer artists, these are some awesome installations to go and check out this Summer:
Young Architects Program 2019
Where: The MoMa
When: June 28-September 2, 2019
What: Showcasing emerging architectural talent, the Young Architects Program challenged this year’s contenders to create designs for an installation that centered around sustainability. Floating fences, geometric tunnels, and skylit ceilings are just a few of the creative concepts these designers have to share.
The Roof Garden Commission by Alicja Kwade
Where: The Met
When: April 16-October 27, 2019
What: Berlin-based artist Alicja Kwade has created an extrodinary multi-media display that looks like a minature solar system, reflecting on time, space, and the mystery of the universe.
Viewfinding featuring Sarah E. Brooks
Where: Riverside Park, South
When: June 22-August 22, 2019
What: Viewfinding, an installation by Sarah E. Brooks, will be shown at Alternative Pride. The festival focuses on traditionally underrepresented queer communities, and aims to magnify their voices through their work. Brook’s sculpture features 26 different works from queer-identifying poets, which are engraved on the sculpture.
Work in Progress by Charlotte Posenenske
When: March 8-September 9, 2019
What: Featuring works from German sculptural artist Charlotte Posenenske, enjoy open-ended, minimalist, and fascinating geometrical sculptures displayed throughout the space.
Special Mention: Yayoi Kusama Exhibition
Where: David Zwirner Gallery
What: Critically acclaimed experiential and sculptural artist Yayoi Kusama will have an exhibition at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York later this year. Not necessarily this Summer, but we’re so excited about it-we had to give it a mention!
So when you need a break from the beach day, or are just curious about what new art is popping up, New York , as always, has you covered.
