  • Maybe reviving the art market can take a page from Herb and Dorothy Vogel. Herb & Dorothy is a documentary playing now, that recounts the inspiring tale of how a postal clerk and librarian, with their modest salaries, amassed one of the most important Minimalist and contemporary art collections in the world. The Vogels have been going strong since the 1960s, and director Megumi Sasaki tells their story largely through the artists they collected, including wonderful anecdotes from Chuck Close, Linda Benglis, Robert and Sylvia Mangold, and Richard Tuttle (Season 3).
  • In tandem with the artist’s mid-career retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, Yinka Shonibare MBE (Season 5) has created Party Time: Re-imagine America in honor of the Newark Museum‘s centennial. In the opulent, mahogany-paneled dining room of the Ballantine House, the Season 5 artist stages an imagined scene of a late nineteenth century dinner party, comprising eight headless figures dressed in period costume who have cast away their Victorian etiquette in favor of indulgence and debauchery. Through January 3.
  • The Serpentine Gallery is currently exhibiting Jeff Koons‘ (Season 5 Fantasy Episode) Popeye Series, featuring a number of inflatable toy sculptures and paintings that draw on images from American childhood and consumer culture. The works incorporate some of Koons� signature ideas and motifs, including flippy combinations of everyday objects, cartoons, art-historical references and children�s playthings. The show runs through September 13.
