Tonight’s NY Openings

It’s September again and here in New York that means the gallery season has begun. Here’s a few openings on our radar for tonight:

Marianne Boesky – Jay Heiks – Inanimate Life –  In creating this multimedia series of works that explore processes of evolution and regeneration, corrosion and decay,  Heikes was inspired by Douglas Coupland’s description of the year following the end of the world from his 1998 novel Girlfriend in a Coma. Heikes was particularly affected by the line “ten million pictures fall from ten million walls,” which alludes to the end of art and culture, as we know it. “I never put too much stock in the fact that any of these mediums were truly dying because I saw them as corpses dragging themselves through the streets to rehabilitation centers, only to be reborn more grotesque and perverse than before,” Heikes said in reaction to the text.

Peter Blum – Matthew Day Jackson – In Search of (Soho) / The Tomb (Chelsea) – The Whitney Biennial and Greater New York alum presents a new body of multimedia and sculptural works based on his 2009 residency and exhibition at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology List Visual Arts Center.
