New York
Almine Rech New York: De Wain Valentine: Works from 1967 to present.
Valentine incarnates a key moment in the development of the Los Angeles art scene in the 1960s and 1970s (in parallel, and somewhat in opposition to New York-based Minimalism)
David Zwirner 19th St: Josh Smith: Emo Jungle
Di Donna: Surrealism in Mexico

from his pioneering use in the 1970s of backlit color transparencies to his intricately constructed scenes of enigmatic incidents from daily life, literature, and film, Wall has expanded the definition of the photograph, both as object and illusion

Nancy Hoffman Gallery: Michael Gregory: November’s Guest
Perrotin: John Henderson: Model
Henderson’s work insists on alternate - abductive - logics, one where that which is built anticipates being unbuilt and any declaration is coexistent with its amendment

a collection of four historical works marking the artist’s second show at Perrotin New York and his fifth with the gallery
