This past weekend the art world congregated on Randalls island for Frieze New York, the international art fair. But participants were lured back to Manhattan on Sunday to have a look at several new shows opening at the New Museum. We attended the preview yesterday morning — as did photographer Tim Schreier (who provided these images).
The most dramatic exhibition is not in the museum itself but next door in Studio 231 (see our January feature on the new venue). The gallery has been filled with Nathalie Djurberg’s Noah’s Ark-like collection of creatures — part of her largest multimedia show. “The Parade” includes several mesmerizing “claymation” style videos that you’ll probably find fairly unnerving. The exhibit is accompanied by the music of Hans Berg.
Also on display at the New Museum: sculptor Phillidia Barlow’s first solo New York exhibition; Tacita Dean’s “Five Americans” (multimedia portraits of such luminaries as Merce Cunningham); a focused survey of Berlin-based artist Klara Liden’s works; and New York artist Ellen Altfest’s first solo museum show.
You can find out more about all of the exhibitions here and see more photos after the jump.
A reminder: the New Museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
These exhibits look amazing. Hopefully we will have the time to check them out very soon. There’s always an amazing art exhibit happening in Manhattan that we end up missing.
