September NYC Art Shows & Manhattan Galleries to Peruse

Must-See NYC Art Shows this September
A global beacon of creativity and art of all kinds, New York City has attracted the greatest artists in the world for hundreds of years - from museum and gallery walls, to Manhattan's famous schools and vibrant streets. If you're looking for things to do in NYC as summer starts to loosen its grip, why not take in a few of these inspiring art shows and openings?
 
Mike Kelley
Sept. 10th - Oct. 24th
Hauser & Wirth
511 W 18th St.
Through a Superman lens, Kelley explores isolation and nostalgia in a series of "Kryptonian" sculptures be made from 1954 through 2012.
 
"Chuck Close: Recent Work"
Sept. 11th - Oct. 17th
Pace Gallery
508 W 25th St.
Equal parts abstract and photo-realistic, the self-portraits in this new collection are painstakingly painted to capture (and twist) every detail sublimely.
 
Surround Sounds by Christian Marclay
Sept. 11th - Oct. 17th
Paula Cooper Gallery
534 W 21st St.
This immersive video project puts the listener in the middle of a comic book, silently projecting a broad range of "POW!" "SWISH!" BANG!" on the gallery's four walls.
 
"Picasso Sculpture"
Sept. 14th - Feb. 7th
MoMA
11 W 53rd St.
Everyone knows Picasso for his groundbreaking cubism paintings, but the sculptures he dabbled in all his life are equally as impressive and influential.
 
"Barbara Rossi: Poor Traits"
Sept. 16th - Jan. 3rd
New Museum of Contemporary Art
235 Bowery
Featuring one of the premier Chicago Imagists of the 1960s and '70s, the paintings and drawings in this collection marry the surreal, pop culture, and Rossi's own unconscious in wildly psychedelic pieces, less than a mile from our hotel.
