Exhibitionists on the Move

A new collective of young artists is taking its DIY show to a high-end gallery.
EDWARD BROWN
Exhibitionists, a recent pop-up art show at Shipping & Receiving, featured some familiar names, but it mainly served as a platform for new, emerging artists. That may not seem like a revolutionary concept, but in a city whe...

Princes and Queens

The Modern’s Kehinde Wiley show is glorious and momentous.
