The year has officially begun! As we welcome new things to come this year, many things that entered with us into 2019 will not be here forever, specifically exhibits. There are many exhibits leaving this month, an ideal time to visit museums and galleries. Why? The holidays are over and the exhibits are less crowded than usual. Don’t let the hype of the new year make you miss these 4 great exhibits that are leaving this month.

ITOMARISM: Kaleidoscope
JANKOSSEN CONTEMPORARY
New York, 529 W 20th St, 7th Floor

Japanese Artist Mari Ito’s colorful paintings are really delightful to the eyes. Living in Japan and Barcelona influenced her lively, organic paintings in more ways than one. Her newest series is slightly based on her previous series, The origin of Desire, that represented theories of Animism, Anthropocene and Animalism, and brings to life impulses of organic matter.

Charles White: A Retrospective
Museum of Modern Art
11 W 53rd St, New York, NY 10019

I attended this exhibit the other day.

Wow! Charles White created a massive amount of work. While I was familiar with his paintings, I never realized how explorative his career was. From being a social activist to working as a graphic designer, White had no limits. MoMA’s collection of his work shows is diverse, and surprisingly intimate with his letters and sketches on display to read.

“SARAH LUCAS: AU NATUREL”
235 Bowery, New York, NY 10002

The English-native artist broke out in the 1980s with the Young British Artists and has challenged our notions of gender, sexuality, and the human body ever since. Her work, a collection of sculptures, photography, and installations, span across 3 floors of the New Museum. Her recent works such as This Jaguar’s Going to Heaven (2018) will be accompanied by works featured in Venice Biennale 2015 and Freud Museum in London.

PLUSH PAINT
181 Orchard Street, New York

Susan Carr, Osamu Kobayashi, and Jason Stopa’s collection dominates primary colors and textures in this collaborative exhibit. The mixture of their technical command colors and balanced compositions makes for an attractive abstraction.
