At New York galleries this November we find a strong, eclectic mix of shows—from solos of young artists, to historic two-person surveys, to blockbusters of leading contemporary artists that are too big for a single gallery space. Below, find 15 gallery shows that should not be missed.
It’s well known that Chamberlain was deeply inspired by the works of the Abstract Expressionists. However, the sculptor had a special affinity for the rhythm and gesture found in the paintings of de Kooning—he first encountered de Kooning’s works in 1950, and met him later that decade. This unprecedented show brings the two artists’ iconic works together, including a dozen Chamberlain sculptures and seven de Kooning paintings, which, shown together, present a harmonious visual dialogue.
