Let’s face it—the bulk of this week’s chatter in the art world isn’t going to be about Donald Trump’s Inauguration, but Marilyn Minter and Madonna’s talk Thursday evening at the Brooklyn Museum lamenting it. And that’s as it should be. Resistance to this new presidency is essential.
Friday, we’ll be participating in the #J20 Art Strike, so no content on our website will be available but for a livestream of Rachel Mason lip synching the inauguration as FutureClown. Those seeking to participate in the art protests can head to the Whitney where Occupy Museums will be hosting a “Speak Out”.

Other than that, we’re recommending a show about soul crushing anxiety and despair at LUBOV, and a show called “Infected Foot” at Greene Naftali, because sickness also seems like an appropriate theme for the week.

Since opening her doors in 2008, Lisa Cooley’s artists have consistently appeared in prestigious group shows, museum exhibitions, publications, and have been added to several major museums’ public collections. To name just a few of their larger shows over the past two years, J. Parker Valentine showed at Taka Ishii, Frank Haines performed at PS1, and Erin Shirreff exhibited in Greater New York and at the Met. It comes as no surprise that the gallery will soon move from its (roughly) 700-square-foot storefront on Orchard Street to a 4,800-square-foot space at 107 Norfolk.
