With this job, you don’t always have a chance to write up all the exhibitions you saw and loved, so for me, the 2014 year-end review is a Godsend. It gives me a chance to give a shout out to everything I saw and loved. And this year, there was an awful lot of it. May 2015 be this bountiful and more.

It’s an intimate memorial for Kurtti, but it’s also a story of community, and the meaning of comings and goings.

Happy Fourth of July, art people. There’s not much going on thanks to the holidays, but for the art die-hards in the crowd, we’ve managed to scrounge up a few openings. We’d also like to remind you all about the great summer shows we posted about in June. For better or worse, in New York, you’ll never be want for shows to see and places to go.

A fairly apolitical experience at Bushwick Open Studios has us craving an engagement with the world beyond the studio. Luckily, this week’s art events will fill that void.
