Screening: Barry Lyndon at MoMA

Opening: “Wendy White” at Arts+Leisure
Alright! Here’s a nice change of pace from the summer group show mayhem. Wendy White will present a new series of tondos that concern soccer, Petro Almodóvar, La Movida Madrileña (a countercultural movement in 1980s Spain) and quite a bit more. Can’t wait. —A.R.

THURSDAY, JULY 17
Opening: Nancy Rubins, “Our Friend Fluid Metal” at Gagosian
Nancy Rubins will have her first exhibition of large-scale sculptures in New York since 2006. The largest sculpture, according to the gallery, “measures 17 x 42 x 24 feet, breaks out of a wall and looms overhead, a sculptural cumulus that makes light of its expected permanence and weight via a system of compound steel trusses and tension cables.”–M.H.M.
Gagosian, 522 West 21st Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.
Exhibition: “Charles Gaines: Gridwork 1974–1989” at the Studio Museum in Harlem
This one should pretty much just sell itself. It’s the first museum survey of Charles Gaines, whose work was last seen in New York last year at Paula Cooper. Should be a barnburner. —A.R.
Studio Museum in Harlem, 144 West 125th Street, New York, 12–9 p.m., $7/$3
