For Althamer's first museum exhibition in the US, curators Mas Gioni and Gary Carrion-Murayari gather together the artist's most iconic works, including his Venice Bienniale contribution, The Venetians, which does the flayed spectacle of 'Body Worlds' one better, and the videos in which we get to see Althamer on drugs and in search of enlightenment (spoiler: he doesn't find it).
Schendel's work offers yet another instance of the Bauhaus's long reach into the Americas, and into Brazil in particular. Next to her countrywomen Lygia Clark and Lygia Pape, Schendel is the more conservative, but no less remarkable and worthy of praise.
If you haven't caught it, David Altmejd's The Flux and The Puddle, another of the artist's major confabs caught in a matrix of Plexiglas doesn't disappoint. Grotesque and playful, it goes to show what a little imagination and a lot of labour can do.
Part circus stunt, part metaphor for human partnership, Shelley and Schweder are inhabiting, 24 hours a day until Sunday, a 25-foot wheel (think miniature DIY space station). It's the most recent iteration of what Schweder calls 'performance architecture'. And you thought the art fairs were grueling.
