THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3
Opening: Jacob Kassay at 303 Gallery
After becoming one of the most successful young artists in America, and then after being accused of creating zombie formalist canvases, Jacob Kassay found himself in a predicament. Where to go next? For Kassay, the answer was to leave behind painting and instead start producing sculpture based on architecture. This show will feature more of these minimalist sculptures, three of which turn the gallery into something like a hedge maze, effectively creating passages with dead ends. Kassay’s sculptures are meant to disorient viewers, causing them to wonder what role, if any, they play within a gallery space. Also in this show will be new railing-like works that will be fixed to the gallery’s walls.
303 Gallery, 555 West 21st Street, 6–8 p.m.
