Opening: Keith Mayerson and Peter Saul at Robert Blumenthal
What!

FRIDAY | Exhibition: "Jeff Koons: A Retrospective" at the Whitney

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25

Chat and Book Signing: Raymond Pettibon and Kim Gordon at the Strand
Last year’s “To Wit” at David Zwirner allowed Pettibon the rare freedom to use the gallery as a studio and an exhibition space. Pettibon painted and drew works in the same space where they were later exhibited. A new book, To Wit, documents the creation process and the finished works of last year’s show. Mr. Pettibon’s fan and friend, Kim Gordon, will be speaking with the artist before a book signing. —Dashel Pierson Read More

Lecture: Frances Stark on Robert Ryman at Dia:Chelsea
This is one intriguing pairing. Los Angeles’ great Frances Stark will discuss the work of Robert Ryman as part of Dia’s Artists on Artists lecture series. I would recommend buying your ticket ahead of time so you’re not waiting awkwardly in the standby line as your friends and enemies are lounging inside sipping beers from Brooklyn Brewery. It’s not a good feeling. —Andrew Russeth Read More

TUESDAY | Opening: Ruba Katrib vs. Elaine Lustig Cohen & Heman Chong: Correspondence(s) at P!

TUESDAY, JUNE 3

Opening: Ruba Katrib vs. “Elaine Lustig Cohen & Heman Chong: Correspondence(s)” at P!
Authorship takes the form of a chain letter, or perhaps a delicious, ever-expanding Mobius strip, in P!’s latest project. Let’s begin at the beginning: Heman Chong picked out sturdy, elegant abstract paintings by Elaine Lustig Cohen (whose 1967 Centered Rhyme is pictured), then Ms. Lustig Cohen commissioned Mr. Chong to create new paintings from his “Cover Versions” series. Their show together has been hanging at the gallery since early May, and it is stunning. (Meanwhile, P! brought Ms. Lustig Cohen’s work to NADA New York.) Now SculptureCenter’s curator, Ruba Katrib, will rehang the show, keeping the curatorial flow going. Does it have to end? —Andrew Russeth Read More
