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

Finalist: ‘Cannibal’s Bath’ by Matter Design, courtesy of the MoMa

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.

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 

Sculpture by 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: TBD

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.
