5 Must-See Gallery Shows:

Kristen Schiele at Lu Magnus Gallery, through October 12 (55 Hester Street)

“It feels as modular and free as I can make it — lots of details, color, and textures,” says Kristen Schiele of the paintings, collages, and wall sculptures in her latest exhibition, “Spirit Girls.” Schiele — who recently gave birth to a baby girl — has created these works as a thought experiment, projecting the sort of environments her daughter might inhabit and encounter as she becomes a young adult. Overall, it’s a massive development of what the artist terms her “lo-fi punk vernacular,” with layered elements (silkscreen, airbrush, acrylic, oil, stamped pigment) combining to create vibrantly intricate vignettes.

Rebecca Warren at Matthew Marks Gallery, through October 25 (523 West 24th Street)

These painted-bronze sculptures elicit a strange mix of emotions, their phallic, distended Giacometti forms plumped with unexpected breasts and ornamented with pompoms. They’re both silly and noble, as are the hulking bronze rocks — lumpy and pattern-adorned — sitting on wheeled dollies. Warren mixes things up with a few more Minimalist pieces, like “You Are Quiet, I Will Be Too,” a steel, paper, and pompom wall sculpture that’s like an indecipherable sentence spelled out as a shelf.

Jason Rhoades at Zwirner Gallery, through October 18 (537 West 20th Street)

It seems like just yesterday that the Zwirner mini-empire invited a certain 20-something market darling to build a factory in one of their galleries, cranking out sugary candies along with a pervasive bad attitude. READ ON….

Fred Wilson at Pace Gallery, through October 18 (534 West 25th Street)

This array of conceptual work from 2004 through 2014 is punchy and pared-down, juggling a limited visual iconography (the design elements of African nations’ flags; bulbous blown-glass tear drops that appear to rain down the wall) and an almost entirely black-and-white tonal palette. “The Mete of the Muse,” 2006, pairs an “African” statue with a “European” one, mixing two very different visions of femininity, sexuality, and grace. 

Philippe Weisbecker at Zieher Smith & Horton, through October 4 (516 West 20th Street)

This show of intimate drawings, paintings, and sculptures at the newly rebranded gallery is full of tiny revelations. Scott Zieher, who met the French artist about a decade ago, describes Weisbecher’s complex appeal: He’s “deeply aware of Minimalism,” yet the work also has “the naivete of the opposite end of the emotional and conceptual spectrum in its vernacular, outsider feel.”

Sneak Peek: What to Expect at the Biennale des Antiquaires

The Biennale des Antiquaires will open its doors to VIP collectors on Wednesday, Sep 10, and to the general public the following day, with a treasure-trove of rare antiques, tribal artworks, silver, porcelains, design furniture, and a range of artworks that represent the best in their respective categories.

Housed under the elegant glass roof of the Grand Palais, the XVII Biennale promises visitors the best of everything – a Versailles Garden-themed scenography by French interior designer Jacques Grange complete with an olfactory fountain by Francis Kurkdjian aiming to plunge visitors into the heart of the 18th century with a “Bouquet de la Reine” fragrance; an exclusive gastronomic experience over all 11 days of the event, with a succession of chefs, one for each day, from well-known Relais & Chateaux restaurants; and of course, the most exclusive selection of antiques, objects d’art, and haute joaillerie in the world.
