Trenton Doyle Hancock has a major survey exhibition, Walton Ford exhibits new watercolors, Richard Serra receives an award, and more in this week’s roundup.

  • Yinka Shonibare MBE has a solo exhibition at Brand New Gallery (Milan, Italy). Through sculpture, photography, and film, the artist explores the concept of destiny as it relates to themes of desire, yearning, love, power, and sexual repression. Closes May 10.
  • Walton Ford’s new watercolor paintings are on view at Paul Kasmin Gallery (New York, NY). Ford continues his natural history research, mining literary sources, folklore, and historical anecdotes for inspiration and imagery. In an interview with Claire Howorth for the Wall Street Journal, Ford discusses the exhibition and the next chapter of his life.
  • Martin Puryear is creating a commissioned slavery memorial for the Brown University campus. Puryear was chosen from a slate of more than 65 artists, architects, and landscape architects and from five finalists. In April, Puryear helped site a full-scale model of the sculpture. The dedication is planned for fall 2014.
  • Richard Serra is the first artist to receive the President’s Medal from the Architectural League of New York. The highest honor from the League, the Medal is presented to an individual in recognition of a significant body of work in architecture, design, urbanism, or art.
