Well, good. Postmasters’ Magda Sawon announced over Twitter yesterday, that SEVEN will participate in New York’s upcoming fairs. This means we’ll have at least one event to attend that resembles an actual exhibition, in addition to Frieze and Pulse, which run May 4th through 7, and 3rd through 6th, respectively.

Don’t worry, we’ll be gentle. After this year’s auction protests, art fairs, and museum freakshows, it’s high time we sit our asses down to some video games. Here are a few art events that require little to no effort (in a good way) this month.

After a few days at Art Basel Miami Beach, it's easy to forget that art doesn't always come in cubes. Museums and private collections offer some respite, but among the legion of Basel satellite fairs, only one dares break the mould: SEVEN. SEVEN's organizers – BravinLee programs, Hales Gallery, Pierogi Gallery, Postmasters, P.P.O.W., Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, and Winkleman Gallery, all from New York – have worked collaboratively, arranging their works in a flowing exhibition whose geography is determined less by funding and more by content.

William Powhida is mean. His acerbic drawings and calculated rant-pieces have built him a reputation in New York’s art world as something between a complicit skeptic and a doomsday preacher, decrying the ills of contemporary art even as he steadily climbs its ladder. Last month, he opened a show at Postmasters Gallery – up until November 26th – that turned that same eye onto high finance, politics, and the general state of everything. I visited him in his studio to find out more.

October gallery recommendations are in. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we can look forward to an abundance of marketable, slightly humorous work. It seems if you’re not painting this fall, you may be shit out of luck; this is not to say, though, that there won’t be beautiful, intelligent, or provocative paintings.

Thumbnail image for Great Gallery Websites: 5 Years On

Earlier this week I went after the worst gallery websites I could find; today I write about the best. This portion of the segment is harder than one might think, because good websites don’t make the user aware of their design: I arrive, I get my information, I leave. With this in mind, rather than highlight […]

New York Needs A New Media Gallery

The New York gallery world isn’t as fun as it was a couple of years ago. The scene desperately needs new media galleries to replace now closed venues such as Vertexlist and artMovingProjects, and pop-up spaces aren’t going to cut it.  Spaces dedicated to creating focused long term exhibition programs are essential the growth of […]
