With Inspire Your Heart With Art Day in mind, this week’s roundup finds the New Museum rethinking contemporary art through several Art21 artists’ works, Arturo Herrera exploring abstraction in two exhibitions, Gabriel Orozco boomeranging, and more.

  • Arturo Herrera has work currently on view at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. (NYC).  His self-titled exhibition features new works on paper and large scale wall paintings that explore fragmentations as a mode for abstraction.  The show will be on view until March 5.

  • Arturo Herrera: Les Noces (The Wedding) is an upcoming exhibition anchored by a digital projection—the artist’s first work to incorporate sound and moving images.  The exhibition features new work by Herrera that shows fragments of abstract black and white images set to a 1923 ballet by Igor Stravisnsky.  This show will be on view February 3 – April 30.
  • In conjunction with the current Tate exhibition, Gabriel Orozco was interviewed for this film which tracks Orozco’s working life at home and other pursuits, including his love of playing ‘boomeranging.’
  • The current exhibition You and Now is on view and features the work of Collier Schorr, among a few others at Balice Hertling (Paris).
  • If you’re in the Beverly Hills area anytime soon, be sure to check out Mike Kelley at the Gagosian Gallery.  The artist’s new sculptures and videos will be on view until February 19.
  • Mark your calendars for when Alfredo Jaar will have work presented in the Sharjah Biennial 10, an extensive exhibition of visual art featuring works in various media. Drawing inspiration from the curators’ conceptual framework Plot for a Biennial, Jaar is one of several exhibitions that will unfold in venues across the heart of Sharjah (UAE).  The event will take place March 16 – May 16.

  1. I just saw Arturo Herrera’s “Peter” on this website just now. Wow wild and full of color. I googled him and loved many of his other works. His linemarking is very loose and crazy!
