To begin with, I'm psyched about the Taryn Simon exhibit opening at the Whitney. I got a taste of Simon's An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar, a beautifully executed index of spaces usually blocked from public view, when it was featured in the New York Times Magazine and I'm eager to see the full spread.
Then there are FIVE group exhibitions that are bound to be a good time: SoHo Photo's Krappy Kamera Exhibition (of photos made entirely with cameras from the "lowest end of the technology scale"); the Winter installation of Jen Bekman's Hey, Hot Shot! show; That '70s Show, the powerHouse homage to New York in the 1970s; A.I.R. Gallery's 7th Biennial, including 40 prominent female artists; and The Jewish Museum's survey of contemporary Israeli art, Dateline Israel.
I'm also interested in the first exhibition by Mississippi photographer Henry Clay Anderson at Steven Kasher Gallery, Len Prince's musings on Jessie Mann at Catherine Edelman Gallery, and Kim Reierson's study of trucker culture at the Robin Rice Gallery.
