Pliable new images by this painter of the plastic fantastic.


RON MUECK
May 11-June 16

James Cohan, 41 West 57th Street, 755-7171

This naughty YBA, whose art involves patriarchal (and patricidal) authority issues, solos here. His spookily realistic Dead Dad—shrunk to infant-size—was in "Sensation."


'FRANK O. GEHRY RETROSPECTIVE'
May 17-August 26

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue, 423-3500

The multinational McGugg, known for great containers and compromised shows, brings an unassailable architect inside for a retrospective. Will his titanium halo silence complaints?


'LEON GOLUB: PAINTINGS 1950-2000'
May 18-August 19

Brooklyn Museum of Art, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, 718-638-5000

Giants, dictators, terrorists, mercenaries, thugs, and sphinxes do dirty deeds in some 35 gruff works exploring excesses of individual and institutional power.


WILLIAM KENTRIDGE
June 2-September 16

New Museum, 538 Broadway, 219-1222

This show tracks the South African artist's animated films, drawings, and performance works—which meld the personal and the political—from 1989 to the present.
