Summer’s extra hours of daylight are a welcome excuse to experience Manhattan as many would like to do if work didn’t get in the way.
ART OPTIONS: A series of ongoing exhibitions and installations can be found in town this summer. The Bruce High Quality Foundation, an anonymous troupe of artists known for their antiestablishment ways, is showing off installation art, painting, photography, sculpture, live performance and video at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Another rabble-rouser, Matthew Barney, is the focus of an exhibition at The Morgan Library, while sculptor Ken Price has his first retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and his works on paper can be seen at The Drawing Center.
In the lot adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art, visitors can immerse themselves in “Rain Room.” As they pass through a field of falling water, the man-made rain pauses wherever a human body is detected. Inside, MoMA goers will find “Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes” and Claes Oldenburg’s “The Street and The Store.”
Over at Scandinavia House, “Munch/Warhol and the Multiple Image,” a 30-piece exhibition that explores the overlap between Edvard Munch and Andy Warhol, is now on view. At the Gladstone Gallery, “The Unfinished Film” features just that from Sergei Eisenstein, Jean-Luc Godard, the Maysles brothers and others every Wednesday afternoon. “Revolutionary Film Posters” showcases Russian standouts from 1920 to 1933 at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery. Chelsea’s Cheim & Read has “The Women in Our Life,” highlighting works from the likes of Jenny Holzer, Louise Bourgeois and Alice Neel. The Rachel Uffner Gallery on the Lower East Side pokes fun at “Summer Whites” with a group show featuring work from Sol LeWitt and others. More colorful renderings can be found at the Society of Illustrators, where 200 never-before-seen Maurice Sendak creations are on view. And for those who won’t get out of the city this month, “Summer Break” is up at Station Independent Projects through Aug. 4.
