Dana Hoey

Petzel

“During the run of Dana Hoey Presents, my role will be that of Svengali,” Hoey says. “Although I make work as a single subjective, expressive artist, I prefer to emphasize my position as a participant in a larger social construct.”

Margot Bergman

Anton Kern Gallery

Bergman’s unabashed women, presenting themselves in varying stages of done-up and undone, gaze directly back at the viewer. Each of these poignantly human figures possesses a distinct persona, and therefore is named rather than titled. Paintings of Isadore, Portia, and Liz, while fully formed also leave an openness for each soul to wander.

Hollis Taggart

Much has been made over the last decade about the increasingly blurring lines between fine art and design, as function and creative innovation meld to produce compelling new kinds of objects. In this context, artist Sven Lukin’s painting-sculptures of the 1960s feel utterly at home and enticingly contemporary.

Mo Kong

CUE Art Foundation

Blurring fact and fiction, art and science, truth and near-truth, the artist turns the gallery into an immersive installation exploring a not-so-distant future in which China and the United States are in the midst of a political Cold War, echoed externally by an atmospheric antagonism rendered by climate change that has turned China and the U.S. into the hot and cold centers of the world.
