Still tired from Armory Week? Well rest up and get ready to hit the galleries because we couldn’t even choose between all the great shows opening this week. There’s a survey of Keith Haring’s early work at the Brooklyn Museum, an exhibition of exquisite corpses from Surrealism to the present at MoMA, and a conversation with Kehinde Wiley about his current show at the Jewish Museum. On the Lower East Side, Lisa Cooley Fine Art opens a brand new 4,800 square-foot space with a group exhibition inspired by Frank O’Hara’s poem “Today.”
Hernan Bas, who currently has an installation at the Louis Vuitton store in Miami and a solo exhibition at the Kunstverein Hannover in Germany, has an exhibition opening at Lehmann Maupin (Chelsea) on Thursday. Other highlights this week include David Lynch’s mixed-media paintings at Tilton Gallery, Fred Wilson at Pace Gallery, and Jim Shaw at Metro Pictures.
