Art exhibitions you can’t miss in New York this fall

Julie Curtiss: Somnambules | Anton Kern Gallery, New York

September 8 – October 22, 2022

This exhibition marks Julie Curtiss’ third solo exhibition with Anton Kern Gallery, however it is the first to take place in the main exhibition space. The show entitled Somnambules – French for sleepwalkers – is a deeply personal show that deals with the artist’s struggle with being an insomniac. It boldly brings the viewer into a surreal world between sleep and wakefulness. Julie Curtiss is a young emerging artist who was born in Paris, France and who is now living and working in Brooklyn, NY.

Dawn Williams Boyd: The Tip of the Iceberg | Fort Gansevoort, New York

September 21, 2022 – November 19, 2022

Dawn Williams Boyd debuts at Fort Gansevoort with a 100% cotton exhibition of cloth paintings entitled The Tip of the Iceberg. Boyd uses this unique medium to inspect her grandmother’s lineage through striking, emotive imagery: “My maternal grandmother was a cotton tenant for twenty summers near Lake Bistineau in Louisiana. She told me she would often be punished for pricking her fingers and bleeding on the crop. I never knew the fluff was secured inside a brown boll until I saw this strange flowering plant inside a concept shop in SoHo. The white seeps out like a cloud. I wondered how the dark hardened shell birthed these soft peculiar insides.” This must-see New York art exhibit is full of strong contemporary political references mixed with personal recollections.

David LaChapelle: Make Believe | Fotografiska, New York

Opening September 9th, 2022

David LaChapelle – one of the most influential celebrity photographers of our time – will be exhibiting his first major solo show in North America at Fotografiska in New York. This art exhibition, entitled Make Believe, features over 150 works with a focus on pieces that blur the lines between reality and fantasy. The show is a carefully curated mélange of iconic and never-before-seen pieces.

Julia Phillips | High Line Art, New York

September 2022 – August 2023

Echoing Hitchcock’s Rear Window while commenting on social media’s voyeuristic elements, Julia Phillips’ Observer, Observed brings the concept of surveillance to a whole new level. This interactive installation is on public display on the Flyover on the High Line near 26th Street in New York. Visitors are invited to use the cast bronze binoculars that are fixed to a stand facing neighboring buildings and streets. A camera mounted inside the binoculars then beams a live recording of the viewer’s eyes onto an adjacent LED screen. If you are interested in seeing more of Phillips’ work, several of her new sculptures will be on display at Matthew Marks Gallery September 10 – October 29, 2022.
