nyc art scene

a carefully curated calendar & cumulative catalog of new york city's most interesting art exhibitions and events. hand picked by Arthur Seen & Team

Opens Tomorrow, Apr 26, 6-8p:Domenico Gnoli : Paintings 1964-1969Luxembourg & Dayan Gallery, 64 E.77th St., NYCThe exhibition brings together 18 of Gnoli’s late paintings, which will fill the gallery’s townhouse. His meditations on the material trappings of bourgeois Italian life directly challenged the politically charged discourse proffered by artists of the then burgeoning Arte Povera movement by suggesting that identity is constructed primarily around consumerism and commercial choices.  Supra-realistic, subtly colored, luminous and large, his paintings suggest that subjectivity can be expressed through the width of a pinstripe, or that the social values of an entire decade can be located in a lady’s leather handbag.  - thru June 30
