This crazy week, everyone is in town. And no one loves a beautiful back-to-school fashion crowd more than the art world. As New York galleries kick off their fall seasons, here’s an abbreviated, highly subjective art agenda for fashion week:
Mark Flood at Zach Feuer Gallery
For a sarcasm-heavy dose of art world mudslinging. Opened Sep. 6, at 548 W. 22nd S.
Jesper Just at James Cohan Gallery
To revisit the Danish artist’s provocative films before he stars at next year’s Venice Biennale. Opened Sep. 6, at 533 W. 26th St.
Simon Starling at Casey Kaplan Gallery
For the sheer unpredictability of the British conceptualist’s grand ideas. Opened Sep. 6, at 525 W. 21st St.
Karen Kilimnik and Kim Gordon at 303 Gallery
Because even if the sum doesn’t turn out greater than the parts, the parts are still pretty great. Opens Sep. 7, at 547 W. 21st St.
Douglas Gordon at Gagosian Gallery
To get caught up in the filmmaker’s all-seeing, wide-ranging cultural net. Opens Sep. 8, at 522 W. 21st St.
Bernadette Corporation at Artists Space
Because it’s about time we threw the aught’s favorite downtown art-and-fashion incorrigibles a party. Opens Sep 8, at 38 Greene Street, 3rd Floor.
Gerhard Richter at Marian Goodman Gallery
To ponder how the German master, who turned 80 this year, is still putting out blazing new abstract canvases. Opens Sep. 12, at 24 W. 57th St.
Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe at Marlborough Gallery
To see how the troublemaking duo follows their awesomely depraved meth lab from 2008. Opens Sep. 13, at 545 W. 25th St.
