9 Things to Do in New York's Art World Before June 9

  • TUESDAY, JUNE 3

    Opening: Ruba Katrib vs. “Elaine Lustig Cohen & Heman Chong: Correspondence(s)” at P!
    Authorship takes the form of a chain letter, or perhaps a delicious, ever-expanding Mobius strip, in P!’s latest project. Let’s begin at the beginning: Heman Chong picked out sturdy, elegant abstract paintings by Elaine Lustig Cohen (whose 1967 Centered Rhyme is pictured), then Ms. Lustig Cohen commissioned Mr. Chong to create new paintings from his “Cover Versions” series. Their show together has been hanging at the gallery since early May, and it is stunning. (Meanwhile, P! brought Ms. Lustig Cohen’s work to NADA New York.) Now SculptureCenter’s curator, Ruba Katrib, will rehang the show, keeping the curatorial flow going. Does it have to end? —Andrew Russeth
    P!, 334 Broome Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.

    WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4

    Opening: “From Primitivism to Propaganda: Russia’s Modern Masters” at the National Arts Club
    To celebrate the 12th annual Russian Heritage Month, the Russian American Foundation will present work by “some of Russia’s most notable modern artists.”—M.H. Miller
    National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York, 5-7 p.m.

    THURSDAY, JUNE 5

    Opening: “Louise Lawler: No Dromes” at Metro Pictures
    Hot on the heels of “Adjusted,” her one-person show at Cologne’s Museum Ludwig last year, Louise Lawler will present black-and-white drawings of some of her photographs that have been printed on vinyl and affixed to the wall. —A.R.
    Metro Pictures, 519 West 24th Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.

    Opening: “Eddie Martinez: Neanderthal Jeans” at Half Gallery
    Painter and sculptor Eddie Martinez will have his second show at Half Gallery. Strong title for this outing. —A.R.
    Half Gallery, 43 East 78th Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.

    Opening: Florian Maier-Aichen at 303 Gallery
    303 Gallery will do their fourth show with the photographer Florian Maier-Aichen, whose work explores the “fraught terrain where photography and painting intersect and collapse into one another.”—M.H.M.
    303 Gallery, 507 West 24th Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.

    Book Signing: FriendsWithYou at Paul Kasmin Shop
    The art collective FriendsWithYou will be at PK Shop, around the corner from Paul Kasmin gallery, to sign copies of their new monograph.—M.H.M.
    PK Shop, 511 West 27th Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.

    SATURDAY, JUNE 7

    Opening: Living With Pop. A Reproduction of Capitalist Realism at Artists Space
    The first exhibition in the U.S. to look in-depth at Capitalist Realism, a term coined 50 years ago for an exhibition in a vacated butcher’s shop in Düsseldorf featuring Manfred Kuttner, Konrad Lueg, Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter. —M.H.M.
    Artists Space, 38 Greene Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.

    SUNDAY, JUNE 8

    Opening: “Keil Borrman: The Choice We Face” at Gasser Grunert
    Keil Borrman will present a show of locally produced, ultra-high-end audio equipment and paintings, which act as baffles. I caught it in its first edition, at the artist-run project space Helper in Brooklyn last month, and I can confirm that records sound absolutely insane on that set-up, and that the paintings are very handsome. —A.R.
    Gasser Grunert, 33 Orchard Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.

    Opening: “Brice Dellsperger: BODY DOUBLE: VOUS N’EN CROIREZ PAS VOS YEUX” at Team Gallery
    Team will show all 30 of the videos in Brice Dellsperger’s delicious “Body Double” series, for which he remakes iconic films with varying degrees of faithfulness, casting himself and usually only one other person as women who play all of the roles. Should be great. —A.R.
    Team Gallery, 83 Grand and 47 Wooster Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.
