Weekend Edition: 6 Things to Do in New York’s Art World Before April 27

SATURDAY Opening: “Robert Grosvenor” at Paula Cooper Gallery Robert Grosvenor’s practice has for decades revolved around the large scale structures of steel and plastic, with roofing to evoke a barge, or an abode, or a machine. This new show at Paula Cooper will show two of these edifices alongside something relatively new for Grosvenor: a series of photographic works. Paula Cooper Gallery, 534 W. 21st Street, New York, 6-8 p.m.
SATURDAY Party: Spring Fling at the Parrish Art Museum It’s not quite Hamptons season, but we’re so close to Jitney hopping every weekend that you’d be forgiven if you made a premature jaunt out east Saturday. And then you can hit the Parrish Art Museum’s annual Spring Fling, which brings Hamptons-dweller and enterprising Manhattanites to the big barn to see the current shows and saunter around the giant plot of farmland. It might not be the enormous bash that’s goes down in the middle of the summer, but it’s worth getting out of the city for. Parrish Art Museum, 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill, 7:30 p.m., ticketed
SATURDAY Opening: “Matthew Palladino” and “Kate Steciw” at Retrospective Or, if you want a less glitzy weekend vacation, head up to the Hudson River Valley until you get to its charming namesake town, where Zach Feuer has his Hudson gallery, Retrospective. It’s quite nice to walk down Warren Street and hit up the two spaces, especially now that the trees have reached peak leafiness. The shows going up this weekend are two solo exhibitions by Matthew Palladino and Kate Steciw. Retrospective Gallery, 711 Warren Street and 727 Warren Street, Hudson, 6-8 p.m.
SATURDAY Book Signing: “Barbara Kasten: Stages” at Bortolami Swing by the gallery to snag a signed copy of “Barbara Kasten: Stages” the new book that coincides with her show at Bortolami, “SET MOTION." Not a bad Saturday activity! Bortolami, 520 W. 20th Street, New York, 4:00 p.m.

SUNDAY Opening: “Mamiko Otsubo: Sky Lobby (CE!)” at Cleopatra’s The four-woman Greenpoint collective may have day jobs to hold down, but that can’t keep them from maintaining some ambitious programming at Cleopatra’s. This Sunday’s opening features the work of Mamiko Otsubo. It’s called Sky Lobby, and it’s germination appears to have come from a herky-jerky subway ride. Cleopatra’s, 110 Meserole Avenue, Brooklyn, 6-8 p.m.

SATURDAY

Opening: “Andy Warhol: Campbell’s Soup Cans and Other Works, 1953–1967” at MoMA

In 1962, Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles gave Andy Warhol his first solo show, and he decided to show Campbell’s Soup Cans, the 32 paintings displaying the artist’s favorite canned food. They were shown in a row, just one line of canvases, but for some reason, since then, they’ve been installed at MoMA in a grid. For this new show, in the museum’s Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries, the works will be installed according to the original Ferus Gallery placement, which I feel more effectively conveys all the notions of American consumerism Warhol was grasping at. Clam chowder, chicken noodle, cream of mushroom, onion, green pea, and so on.

The Museum of Modern Art, 11 W. 53rd Street, New York, 10:30 am
