Judy Fiskin at Richard Telles Fine Art, Los Angeles
Richard Telles presents Judy Fiskin’s new film, I Was an iPhone Addict, in her second exhibition with the gallery. The film will screen for the remainder of the exhibition while selected older films by the artist will be viewable in the gallery’s main space after opening day. In her aptly titled new film, Fiskin serves as protagonist and narrator. She muses on the paradoxes of smart phone photography and accompanies them with images she’s captured on her daily walks over a productive six-month period. The exhibition will be on view from January 13th through February 7th, 2018.
Judy Chicago at Salon 94, New York
From 1982 through 1987, the celebrated and iconic feminist artist, Judy Chicago, created a body of work examining the gender construct of masculinity. In a series of drawings, paintings, cast paper and bronze pieces, she explored how prevailing definitions of power have affected the world in general — and men in particular. More than thirty years after Chicago completed PowerPlay, Salon 94 is proud to present a select group of works from this prescient series in Chicago’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will be on view from January 10th through March 8th, 2018.
John Baldessari and Mario Sorrenti at Half Gallery, New York
A joint exhibition of two artists who share a similar motivation in their craftsmanship is taking place at the Half Gallery this winter. The gallery presents John Baldessari and Mario Sorrenti in an exhibition titled “Noses Elbows and Knees” at its New York venue until January 20, 2018.
John Mason at Albertz Benda Gallery, New York
John Mason: Sculpture presents a survey of typologies: figures, spears, crosses, torques, and orbs – large-scale powerful works rendered from his latest experiments and research into form, structure, and color. With roots in his earliest forays into the expressive potential of clay, these latest series reflect Mason’s enduring interest in mathematics, science, computer applications, and aesthetics but present entirely new and distilled forms. The exhibition will open on November 30th, 2017 and run through January 13th, 2018.
Math Bass in ‘Abstract/Not Abstract’ at Art Basel, Miami Beach

The exhibition was curated by Larry Gagosian and Jeffery Deitch and will be on view at Art Basel, Miami Beach in the Moore Building opening on December 6th. The works in the exhibition feature artists who “show work on the boundary between abstraction and representation.”
Tony DeLap at Parrasch Heijnen Gallery, Los Angeles
Tony DeLap: A Career Survey, 1963—2017 presents iconic examples of sculpture, drawing, and painting from various periods throughout Tony DeLap’s six-decade practice. In its New York space, Franklin Parrasch Gallery will include early mixed media sculpture and related drawings from the 1960s, formed paintings from the 1970s and 1980s, and shaped paintings from the 1990s to the present. Parrasch Heijnen will present a similar range of works in Los Angeles, as well as an architectural intervention not exhibited since DeLap’s 1972 solo exhibition at Nicholas Wilder Gallery.
Mark Bradford at the Hirshorn Museum
Mark Bradford’s Pickett’s Charge, a site-specific commission for the circular third-floor gallery at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C., will doubtless be taken by some as an engagement, post-Charlottesville, in the national discussion about Civil War monuments and their place in the public sphere. His installation will continue at the museum through November 12th, 2018.
Mary Corse at the Whitney Museum
The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York is planning to open the artist’s first museum survey in June 2018. Meanwhile, Dia:Beacon in New York’s Hudson Valley will unveil a new gallery dedicated to Corse, featuring four newly acquired paintings, in May 2018. The Whitney show will bring together her most important works, from early shaped canvases to her monochromatic “White Light Paintings,” which incorporate glass microspheres, the reflective glass beads used to paint highway markers. The reflective quality of Corse’s work is a marvel to behold—the surface shifts before your eyes as you move across the room.
Jonas Wood at Museum Voorlinden
Jonas Wood and Shio Kusaka will have their first duo-exhibition in Europe at the Museum Voorlinden in the Netherlands. Kusaka’s work consists of elegant pots and vases in all shapes and sizes. It reflects diverse influences: traditional Japanese techniques, for instance, but also the geometrical patterns of contemporary artists such as Agnes Martin. Wood’s paintings of plants and interiors blur the lines between figurative and abstract art. The recognizable, distorted perspectives in his plant still lifes and portraits testify to influences from areas of art history as distinct as cubism, pop art, and artists such as David Hockney. The duo-exhibition will be on view from September 30th, 2017 to January 7th, 2018.
