Well, we hope the art world had a good summer vacation because school is officially back in session. There are so many good shows opening on Thursday night in Chelsea we just couldn’t list them all—Matthew Barney at Gladstone, Rashid Johnson at Hauser & Wirth and Lynda Benglis at Cheim & Read, to name a few.

We’ve focused on the absolute can’t-miss openings and those that might get overlooked below. From Wednesday night’s opening exhibition on the work and collaborative legacy of early digital/conceptual artist Alison Knowles at The Graduate Center to Thursday night’s absolute must-see double exhibition of Meleko Mokgosi [pictured] at both of Jack Shainman’s Chelsea locations there’s plenty to see and do.

At the Rubell Family Collection, dozens of contemporary women artists working in every conceivable medium left us very impressed.

Michael: Here, the blue-chip market and a private collector managed to accomplish something many institutions or independent curators haven’t—presenting an all-female show that feels as if it has nothing to prove.

Paddy: I still can’t get over how many monumental art works in this show so effectively dominated the space that you’d literally feel awestruck by their presence.

Artist Anicka Yi’s You Can Call Me F takes our obsession with feminine cleanliness to a science-fiction extreme: Women have been reimagined as a “virus,” as a deadly problem. But it’s really hard to know that, if you don’t take a look at the press release first.

This week will not be defined by free time. Bjork opens this week at MoMA; for a bag of money you can see it before the public does at The Armory Show’s benefit for MoMA. Anicka Yi will debut a new bacteria made out of women at the Kitchen. Bleeps and bloops will be heard at the Museum of the Moving Image. Or you can spend your weekend sitting at a computer at the 2015 Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.

Our entirely biased, completely compromised listing advises readers to head out to “Art and the Cloud,” a discussion about collecting digital art moderated by AFC’s Paddy Johnson. Panelists include controversial art advisor and collector Stefan Simchowitz, collector David Diamond, independent curator and consultant Myriam Vanneschi, and Transfer Gallery founder Kelani Nichole.
