The (Long) Shortlist: Month One

Below is a simple list of the best shows I have seen in Chelsea this month. The list also includes a few Williamsburg galleries but no museum shows (Pollock, Hesse, etc.). There are a number of “Elsewhere” shows still on my list, like the Dennis Oppenheim show at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park and his public art downtown in Thomas Paine Park. I’ve made it a point this season to go to Chelsea every two weeks, but I have yet to see everything; Saturday is really the only day I have free to see art, and galleries are closed Sundays. In years past, I was lucky to get out there once every two months.

A stack of press releases and invitation cards litter my bedroom floor. Here’s the list: no links, no descriptions.

Of course there are a few others that I probably forgot. I haven’t seen enough by Seth Price, haven't checked out the Joseph Kosuth exhibition, and of Sean Paul I am on the fence.
