Tony Oursler: Imponderable

http://www.moma.org/calendar/exhibitions/1650?locale=en

Tony Oursler’s Imponderable (2015–16) offers an alternative depiction of modernism that reveals the intersection of technological advancements and occult phenomena over the last two centuries. Presented in a “5-D” cinematic environment utilizing a contemporary form of Pepper’s ghost—a 19th-century phantasmagoric device—and a range of sensory effects, Imponderable is an immersive feature-length film inspired by Oursler’s own archive of ephemera relating to stage magic, spirit photography, pseudoscience, telekinesis, and other manifestations of the paranormal.

Nan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency

http://www.moma.org/calendar/exhibitions/1651?locale=en

Comprising almost 700 snapshot-like portraits sequenced against an evocative music soundtrack, Nan Goldin’s The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a deeply personal narrative, formed out of the artist’s own experiences around Boston, New York, Berlin, and elsewhere in the late 1970s, 1980s, and beyond. Titled after a song in Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’sThe Threepenny Opera, Goldin’s Ballad is itself a kind of downtown opera; its protagonists—including the artist herself—are captured in intimate moments of love and loss

THE BACK DOOR

http://www.armoryonpark.org/programs_events/detail/martin_creed

Clever, dumb, smart and stupidly gorgeous. Whatever Creed does ...he brings a joyousness, lightness and objectivity to the task.” – The Guardian (UK)

Turner Prize-winning, British artist Martin Creed continues his ongoing exploration into rhythm, scale, and order in his largest installation in the U.S. to date, a survey of his work from its most minimal moments to extravagant, larger-than-life installations. Crossing all media including painting, drawing, music, dance, theater, film, sculpture, fashion, and more unclassifiable items such as runners or lights going on and off, his practice transforms the everyday into surprising meditations on existence and the invisible structures that shape our lives.

Chip Hooper: Californiaʼs Pacific 2nd Set

http://www.artnet.com/galleries/robert-mann-gallery/chip-hooper-california%CA%BCs-pacific-2nd-set/

Chip Hooper once described his method: “the process of creating photographs is a contemplative one. It is an exploration of my feelings as much as it is an exploration of what I am seeing. The best images always happen when what I am feeling becomes one with what I am seeing.” The photographs presented in the Robert Mann Gallery exhibition, Californiaʼs Pacific 2nd Set, are perhaps the best embodiment of his process. These works evoke a visceral response, and when faced with a series of large-format photographs, it is hard not to be caught up in the whirlpool of emotion.
