9 Things to Do in New York’s Art World Before March 17


Screenings: Francofest
The whole James Franco cannon is screening this week at IFC. No Spider-Man movies or Freaks and Geeks, but what can you expect? We live in a fallen world. —Dan Duray

IFC Center, 323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street, various times through Thursday (check ifccenter.com), whatever movies cost


Talk: Eric Fischl and Arezoo Moseni at the New York Public Library
Artist Eric Fischl, who last year published a frank, pretty exciting autobiography called Bad Boy, will chat about his life and work with Arezoo Moseni, and will sign books after the event. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and it might be wise to arrive on the earlier side. —Andrew Russeth
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, New York, 6–8 p.m.


Jerome Liebling, “Matter of Life and Death” at Steven Kasher
Steven Kasher Gallery kicks off its representation of the estate of Jerome Liebling with an exhibition curated by the photographer’s daughter. —Michael H. Miller
Steven Kasher Gallery, 521 W. 23rd Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.

Exhibition: “Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937” at the Neue Galerie
The museum will look back at the notorious Nazi exhibition in Munich, presenting so-called degenerate paintings by the likes of Klee, Grosz and Beckmann (pictured here) in conjunction with examples of work that was sanctioned by the Third Reich. —Zoë Lescaze
Neue Galerie, 1048 Fifth Avenue, New York, museum hours


Exhibition: “Other Primary Structures” at the Jewish Museum
Jewish Museum Deputy Director Jens Hoffmann continues his series of sequels to seminal exhibitions with this update of the museum’s storied 1966 Minimalism show, “Primary Structures,” taking a look at international works since the 1960s. Lots of rarely seen names in this one. (Pictured in the slide show is a 1966–67 work by Pakistani artist Rasheed Araeen.) Should be good. —A.R.
The Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Avenue, New York, 11 a.m.–4 p.m., admission

Opening: “Friedrich Kunath: The Temptation To Exist (May Contain Nuts)” at Andrea Rosen Gallery
God bless the art handlers of Andrea Rosen Gallery. I don’t know how they’re going to do it, but apparently they’re going to remove that massive, unbelievably complicated David Altmejd show, which closed on Saturday, and have Friedrich Kunath’s fourth show ready to go by Friday. No small feat. Mr. Kunath, who is 40 this year, is a wily, witty German. Just have a look at the install shot of his 2013 Modern Art Oxford exhibition in the slide show! —A.R.
Andrea Rosen Gallery, 525 West 24th Street, New York, 6–8 p.m.


Opening: William Powhida, “Overculture” at Postmasters
A show of new work by the sarcastic draftsman. —M.H.M.
Postmasters, 54 Franklin Street, New York, 5:30-8 p.m.

Opening: Robert Heinecken
Robert Heinecken’s retrospective at MoMA is now open to you, the general public. Exciting, no? Gotta see it! —D.D.
MoMA, 11 West 53rd St., Through September $25

Opening: Sam Pulitzer, “A Colony for ‘Them” at Artists Space
The online text by Jeff Nagy is a bit cryptic—“A sudden breeze in the otherwise dead air brushes her cheeks and the down on the back of her neck as she leans in to take Sinon’s cock in her mouth…”—but it’s one of the only solo shows that Artists Space has done with a young New York-based artist, in recent years. Clearly an institutional coup for Sam Pulitzer. Pictured here is an install shot from “Gauges for ‘Them,'” his last show at Real Fine Arts. —Z.L.
Artists Space, 38 Greene street, 3rd Floor, New York, 6-8 p.m.
