Painting and sculpture take center stage in our picks for new exhibitions opening at New York City galleries this week. To round things out, expect to find ceramics, drawings and art from a participatory project. New art shows selected open in Chelsea, Brooklyn, 57th Street and the Lower East Side.

CHELSEA:

Hollis Taggart Galleries: “Alex Kanevsky: Some Paintings In No Particular Style”

March 9 through April 8, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. (RSVP acceptances only: 212.628.4000 or rsvp@hollistaggart.com)

This exhibition features over 20 new paintings by Alex Kanevsky. Kanevsky's multilayered works combine abstraction and figuration to present ambiguous connotations. The works often depict figures existing in imagined landscapes and abstracted interiors and allow the physicality of the paint to come through, creating an interaction between material and subject. The painterly compositions have the imprecise spirit of poetry, prompting the viewer to create their own narratives as though looking into a mirror.

Hollis Taggart Galleries is located at 521 West 26th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10001. www.hollistaggart.com.

Paul Kasmin Gallery: “Bernar Venet: Arcs”

March 9 through April 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

"Arcs" features two new sculptures and six large-scale drawings by French conceptual artist Bernar Venet. The graphite, oilstick and collage drawings on view are the artist's largest to date and serve both as ends in themselves and as the basis for Venet's rolled steel Arc sculptures. The exhibition examines the interplay between sculpture and drawing and how the artist's sense of form transcends material barriers.

The exhibition is held at Paul Kasmin Gallery's location at 297 10th Ave, New York, NY 10001. www.paulkasmingallery.com.

LOWER EAST SIDE:

Pace Gallery: “Lee Ufan: Ceramics”

March 10 through April 8, 2017

Opening Reception: Friday, March 10 from 6 to 8 p.m.

This is the first solo exhibition of Lee Ufan's ceramic works in North America. Works on view were created in cooperation with the Manufacture de Sèvres, an atelier outside of Paris known for it's production of porcelain and it's history of working closely with artists since the 18th century. For this show, the artist continues his philosophical investigations into the essence of materiality and the nature of existence. Ufan's practice embodies a respectful intervention into the properties of the clay medium and an engagement with the essential element of fire. Another focus point for the artist is the interplay between and distortion of functionality and meaning versus fragment and ruin.

Pace Gallery is located at 32 E 57th St, New York, NY 10022. www.pacegallery.com.
