8. “Austin Lee: Like It Is” at Jeffrey Deitch, New York

Austin Lee uses digital software in concert with traditional techniques to create colorful paintings, sculptures, and animations. His second solo show with Jeffrey Deitch features works designed in virtual reality and then physically fabricated—plus an augmented reality sculpture on the gallery roof, visible via an Instagram filter. “With each new tech expansion comes both positive and negative side effects,” Lee said in a statement. “Isolation mixed with mediated interaction, subversive advertising, facing overwhelming tragedy alone and through a screen—these are just some of the confusing, disorienting experiences that are hard to adapt to and highlight our need for authentic connection.”

9. “Alix Lambert: Pleadings and Proceedings” at Theodore, New York

Taking advantage of the fact that U.S. courtrooms are open to the public, artist Alix Lambert has spent several years sitting in on trials. Following in the footsteps of courtroom sketch artists, she has illustrated the proceedings, creating snapshots of lawyers, judges, witnesses, family members, jurors, stenographers, court officers, and defendants. The resulting works, captioned with snippets from legal exchanges she has witnessed, are a portrait of the criminal justice system, and how it treats those ensnared in it.

13. “Roy Nachum: Portraits” at A Hug From the Art World, New York

The process for creating this show is done in two parts. Roy Nachum takes over a year in some cases to create these large, hyperreal portraits, using tiny brushes to capture every microscopic detail of the subjects’ faces, all of whom are visually impaired. Then he invites each subject to “finish” the work by marking the surface of their respective portrait with their own interpretive brushstrokes, in the color of their choosing. “It is only after part two, the individuals’ participation, that Nachum feels the portraits gather their soul and unearth their raw presence,” according to the gallery.
