2. “More or Less: Notes to Our Next Mayor, Culminating Panel” at More Art, New  York

Ahead of last year’s mayoral election, social justice-minded public art nonprofit More Art hosted a three-part conversation series about what New York City residents need most—namely, food, shelter, and healthcare. Those discussions have been condensed into an open letter of demands from artists, activists, and community members to new Mayor Eric Adams’s administration. The moderators of the three discussions, artists Candace Thompson, Betty Yu, and Jeff Kasper, will return to talk about the intersection of art and activism, the contents of the letter, how it hopes to ensure all New Yorkers have guaranteed access to food, healthcare, and housing.

Price: Free with registration

Suchitra Mattai, , 2022 Courtesy of Hollis Taggart

3. “Suchitra Mattai: Herself as Another” at Hollis Taggart

Suchitra Mattai is a Guyanese artist who uses imagery from her Indian heritage to comment on colonialism and patriarchy. In her solo show at Hollis Taggart, Mattai presents mixed-media paintings, sculptures, and installations to explore the theme of “othering.” The artist used as the main source for her research into folklore monsters, tales that reflect the taboos and stereotypes often applied to those denied power. Through the works in this show, Mattai creates “a space to confront these misunderstandings… and to reflect on the experience and perspective of the ‘other’ as a means of fostering empathy and connection,” the gallery states.

Location: Hollis Taggart, 521 West 26th Street, 1st Floor, New York
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, Thursday, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

4. “Asif Hoque: Before Sunrise” at Yossi Milo Gallery, New York

“Before Sunrise” is the first solo exhibition of New York-based Bangladeshi artist Asif Hoque. Born in Rome, Hoque moved to Florida at a young age with his family. The title of the exhibition alludes to early morning beach visits he took with his brother during his trips home, where the changing light greatly inspired the works shown here. Hoque’s new work builds on previous imagery of deified brown male and female figures, lions, and vases with the addition of a dynamic new form, the Bengal tiger, and a softening of the surface inspired by Rubens’ technique.

Location: Yossi Milo Gallery, 245 Tenth Avenue, New York
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, Thursday, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

7. “Chris Schanck: Off-World” at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York

Chris Schanck’s work exists at the boundary between sculpture and furniture, straddling the line between art and design with chairs, lighting, and other functional objects produced in his Detroit studio with the assistance of local Bangladeshi craftspeople. Schanck’s forms recall objects from nature, like coral reefs, but also suggest an otherworldly, extraterrestrial origin, at times futuristic, other times reminiscent of ancient civilizations.

9. “Lucia Love: Angel At The Wheel” at JDJ Tribeca

The new show of paintings by Lucia Love at JDJ World’s recently opened location in Tribeca see the artist taking a darker, more cynical turn. Love’s surrealist and often figurative paintings are inspired by fraught political situations, and she does not seem to think things have gotten much better since her last show with the gallery in 2020. As fellow artist Emily Mae Smith wrote in the press release for the show, “The figures in Love’s paintings are amalgamated bodies, often balancing on impossible podiums or floating in broken geometries that defy perspectival logic. Love captures the instability of moral ground in our time of global peril.”

Location: JDJ Tribeca, 373 Broadway B11
Price: Free
Time: Tuesday–Saturday, 12 p.m.–6 p.m.
