Make sure to catch Kurt Kauper’s portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama at Deitch Gallery (76 Grand St.) The work focuses on making portraits of our President and First Lady in a way that avoids common polarities and instead "confronts through neutrality the expectations that a viewer would likely bring to the paintings."
