Opening at The Bronx Museum of Art, this exhibition examines the social, relational, and activist approach of Gordon Matta-Clark. The exhibition will feature over 100 of the artist's works, rarely seen archival materials, and immersive film projections.
The Museum of the City of New York will host an exhibition highlighting transformative public artworks in NYC, as well as the public expectation of art that exists outside the traditional settings of museums and galleries.

Among the first generation of Korean artists who immigrated to the United States in the 1950s, the late Po Kim explored various artistic styles and forms, from Abstract Expressionism to allegorical works. This exhibition presents a selection of Kim's works, which reveal his “progressive journey towards the idyllic safe haven he created in his art and in New York.”
