GUSTAVE CAILLEBOTTE AT THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM


Regina Granne: Increments: Drawings, 1970-1995 at A.I.R. Gallery


Precisely situated in undelineated seas of space, Granne’s forms feel at once boldly declarative and alarmingly precipitous.


Allison Katz: Ruthless in Chalk Farm at Battat Contemporary

Automobiles: John Chamberlain, Chakaia Booker, Dirk Skreber


Retrieved in tribute to  John Chamberlain, 1927-2011

Paine manages to steer these leafless “Dendroids,” as he calls them, between the Scylla of transparency and the Charibdis of mechanization.
