Neil Wel­liver: Paint­ings and Prints. On view through June 29th.

In the 1960s and 70s Neil Wel­liver (1929–2005) led a move­ment to re­de­fine rep­re­sen­ta­tional paint­ing in a post-ab­stract ex­pres­sion­ist, post-min­i­mal world. This ex­hi­bi­tion sur­veys Wel­liver’s work and in­cludes prime early fig­u­ra­tive sub­jects along side his ma­ture land­scapes from the 1980s and 90s of the un­spoiled wilder­ness, some of which mea­sure 96 inches square. In­cluded also are a se­lec­tion of mas­ter­ful ukiyo-e wood­cut prints, which were part of Wel­liver’s prac­tice through­out his ca­reer.

Shep­herd / W & K Gal­leries 58 East 79th Street, New York, NY 10075; (212) 861-4050; shep­ Gus­tav Klimt — Draw­ings. May 1 – 27, July 2018. In 1918, in Vi­enna, four ma­jor contributors to mod­ernism died; the ar­chi­tect Otto Wag­ner, and the painters Kolomon Moser, Egon Schiele and Gus­tav Klimt. Klimt was widely known as one of the most fash­ion­able artists of the fin-de-siè­cle. Even so, he em­braced the avant-garde works of his younger col­leagues and was, along with Kolomon Moser, a founder of the Vi­enna Se­ces­sion. The sen­su­al­ity that Gus­tav Klimt’s works con­vey re­mains pow­er­fully vivid to­day. He re­veals es­sen­tial as­pects of life, shed­ding light on sex­ual de­sire, preg­nancy, and birth and death. His work paved the way for the au­tonomous evo­lu­tion of the Vi­enna art scene; decades later, its in­flu­ence can still be felt in the Vi­en­nese Ac­tion­ism of the 1960s. On the oc­ca­sion of the cen­te­nary of the Klimt’s death, Shep­herd W&K has mounted a spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion of forty of the artist’s draw­ings, in­clud­ing por­traits, stud­ies, and a siz­able en­sem­ble of nudes. The ex­hi­bi­tion can be viewed on our web­site: Shep­ An ac­com­pa­ny­ing pub­li­ca­tion Gus­tav Klimt—Draw­ings in the se­ries W&K Edi­tion, is avail­able at $45.00 (in­cludes ship­ping).

Boris Lurie Art Foun­da­tion 599 11th Av­enue, Floor 4, NY, NY 10036 Boris Lurie and Sam Good­man are fea­tured in Flashes of the Fu­ture: the ‘68’ gen­er­a­tion or the power of the pow­er­less, at the Lud­wig Fo­rum in Aachen, Ger­many through Oc­to­ber 7. What was re­pressed in the United States be­came the sub­ject of [their] work: lynch mobs, se­rial killers, atomic bombs, racism, wars. In a way that scan­dal­ized the art world, Lurie com­bined images of con­cen­tra­tion camps with pin-ups cut out of mag­a­zines…. With his pin-up col­lages, Lurie ex­posed cul­ture as bar­barism in the spirit of Adorno. If cul­ture is ac­tu­ally un­cul­ture, then NO!art can be­come the true art." — Peter Weibel, artist, cu­ra­tor, the­o­reti­cian.
