Oman, a country neighboring Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen, witnessed the opening of its largest private art gallery during the pandemic, Alia Gallery. A converted warehouse located in Muscat’s industrial area of Al Rusayl, the gallery is the brainchild of Omani artist Alia Al Farsi, one of the Sultanate’s most established artists. With a career spanning decades, Al Farsi has exhibited her work in cities such as Paris, Brussels, Seoul, Venice and Tokyo. But the gallery, which carries her name, remains her proudest achievement to date.
Sightings of Barbara Kruger’s work in New York City have been somewhat scarce since her last exhibition in 2018 at Mary Boone Gallery (which permanently closed after its namesake owner went to jail for tax evasion), but now, Kruger is back in a big way with concurrent offerings at David Zwirner and MoMA.
Biography necessarily runs hand in hand with visual-art production. For sculptor and conceptual artist Russell Maltz, living and making are one and the same thing. That said, the affable, unpretentious, and uncontrived sixty-nine-year-old artist wears his penchants, quirks, and opinions lightly, layering them in such a way as always to seem impromptu and so grab an audience’s attention in unexpected ways. In fact, layering would seem to be one of Maltz’s signature activities.

It’s safe to assume that Chihuly is one of the most recognized surnames in contemporary American art. The glass master is so popular that, in 1992, he was named the first National Living Treasure. Over the long arc of an illustrious career, in exhibitions across the nation and abroad, both indoors and out, Chihuly’s glass has delighted thousands upon thousands.
At New York’s George Adams Gallery, this exhibition creates a visual conversation between influential twentieth-century Bay-Area painter Elmer Bischoff (1916–1991) and contemporary New York-based painter Tom Burckhardt.
Painted over the past three years, Plants and Animals, Jonas Wood’s current show at LA’s David Kordansky Gallery, features twenty-five new works that seem like snapshots of quarantine views from windows, isolated landscapes, and interior roomscapes.
Looking Up - D’Arcy Simpson Art Works is pleased to feature new work by Jeremy Bullis and Michael Larry Simpson in Looking Up, opening on Saturday, February 12th, 2022. The large scale color field paintings by Simpson shown alongside Bullis’ ethereal kinetic mobiles fashions an immersive atmosphere of movement filling this intimate gallery with music for the eyes. In this exhibition, each artist explores ideas of movement, balance, tension and harmony within their own practices of composition and construction.
An overnight sensation more than 100 years in the making, af Klint stunned viewers with monumental, brightly colored abstractions created years before Vasily Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian pivoted away from figuration, forcing critics to re-assess the history of the early 20th century avant-garde.
