A new crop of fresh talent kicks off the summer months at galleries across New York, spanning solo debuts and smart group shows to complement your social media addiction or upturn perceptions of the female form
“Elysian Redux” at Asya Geisberg Gallery
May 19–June 25, 537B West 23rd Street
Leah Guadagnoli, Rachel Higgins, Ad Minoliti, Dominique Pétrin, Ben Sanders, Shane Walsh
This show was inspired by the resurgence of the aesthetics, design, and popular imagery of the 1980s—particularly from the iconic British poster company of the era, Athena—among the work of contemporary artists. Works range from Sanders’s enameled planters covered in cheerful motifs to Guadagnoli’s foamy upholstered wall hangings and faux stone plinths.
