I, Narcissist

Artist Lucas Samaras Peers into the Looking Glass and Sees Himself Over and Over Again


GREGOR SCHNEIDER
Date TBA
BARBARA GLADSTONE, 515 WEST 24TH STREET, 212.206.9301

This German artist's obsessively ongoing Ur-House, a nightmare replica of his childhood home, was a spooky hit in Venice a couple of years ago. This fall it's at MOCA in L.A., and he's making a new installation for his first solo here. Expect something architectural, uncanny, and really complicated.

September 25-November 1
HOWARD GREENBERG GALLERY, 41 EAST 57TH STREET, 212.334.0010

FREDERIC BRENNER
October 3-January 11
BROOKLYN MUSEUM OF ART, 200 EASTERN PARKWAY, 718.638.5000

P.S.1 CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, 22-25 JACKSON AVENUE, LONG ISLAND CITY, 718.784.2084

October 16-November 15
CHEIM & READ, 547 WEST 25TH STREET, 212.242.7727

This always inventive and intriguing photographer shows new daguerreotypes of human skulls, small self-portraits on enamel plaques, and a life-size, frost-covered sculpture of the artist as a child.

Johan's photographic projections of the pleasures and terrors of childhood take an unusual turn in this new series of environmental still lifes.


AARON SISKIND
October 16-December 6
ROBERT MANN GALLERY, 210 ELEVENTH AVENUE, 212.989.7600

With double the number of works on display at the concurrent Whitney show, this Siskind centennial event, with prime vintage examples of his muscular abstractions and still lifes, will be hard to beat.

BILL JACOBSON
October 17-November 26
JULIE SAUL GALLERY, 535 WEST 22ND STREET, 212.627.2410

Jacobson strengthens his feel for color with this new group of figure studies and landscapes, both urban and pastoral, all in luminous, expressionist soft focus.


WOLFGANG TILLMANS
October 30-December 6
ANDREA ROSEN GALLERY, 525 WEST 24TH STREET, 212.627.6000

New work, likely to straddle abstraction and representation, by a photographer whose output is protean, personal, and always of the moment.

October 31-December 20
ARIEL MEYEROWITZ GALLERY, 120 ELEVENTH AVENUE, 212.414.2770

Meyerowitz took breaks from photographing the devastation at ground zero to record the beauties of Tuscany in this series of large-scale landscapes that, like his famous images of the bay at Cape Cod, are all about color and light.


NIKKI S. LEE
November 1-December 20
LESLIE TONKONOW ARTWORKS + PROJECTS, 535 WEST 22ND STREET, 212.255.8450

Lee, whose earlier series seemed more about performance than photography, combines both to great effect in this group of provocatively truncated images of the artist with a companion who's been cut out of the picture.


FLOR GARDUÑO
November 13-December 29
THROCKMORTON FINE ART, 145 EAST 57TH STREET, 212.223.1059

A wide-ranging celebration of the career of this contemporary Mexican artist, whose work often seems steeped in feminist myth-making and magic realism.

JANET BORDEN INC., 560 BROADWAY, 212.431.0166

Barney continues to explore the fine line between the staged and the spontaneous image with these large-scale social studies of the French upper class at home, inspired in part by the paintings of Vuillard and Bonnard.
