The Studio Museum in Harlem Since opening in a rented loft at Fifth Avenue and 125th Street in 1968, The Studio Museum in Harlem has earned recognition for its catalytic role in promoting the works of artists of African descent. Charles Gaines: Gridwork 1974–1989 is the first museum survey of the Los Angeles–based conceptual artist’s early work. Charles Gaines is celebrated primarily for his photographs, drawings, and works on paper that investigate systems, cognition, and language. The exhibition features seventy-five works from the beginning of a singular career that now spans four decades.
Whitney Museum of American Art: Jeff Koons Retrospective Jeff Koons is widely regarded as one of the most important, influential, popular and controversial artists of the postwar era. Comprising almost 150 objects dating from 1978 to the present, this exhibition is the most comprehensive ever devoted to the artist’s groundbreaking oeuvre. It is his first major museum presentation in New York and the first to fill nearly the entirety of the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building with a single artist’s work. It is also the final exhibition to take place there before the museum opens its new building in the Meatpacking District in 2015.
