Chelsea Gallery Hop

9 Jun

Chelsea Gallery Hop

The day Jim and I visited the High Line extension, we decided to check out a few galleries in Chelsea. There are literally hundreds of galleries in that small area, so there was a lot of art to see, both street art and traditional media.

I honestly went to so many galleries and saw so much art that I don’t remember the names of everything that I saw and visited.

The highlight of the day for sure was seeing Tauba Auerbach’s show at the Paula Cooper Gallery. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, it’s very technique oriented. She’s best known for her “folds series”, which are absolutely stunning in person. At this show she also featured some new woven canvases which were pretty incredible and intricate.

Other highlights was the Pace Prints gallery showing works from Shepard Fairey to Chuck Close, and an amazing Avedon photography show at the Gagosian Gallery.

I wasn’t allowed to take photos in a lot of the galleries we visited, but these are some of the best shots I was able to sneak.

Considering how hot it was that day (90+ degrees and humid as hell), this piece outside of Printed Matter was the highlight of my day.
