August 2013: Whitehot Watch


by Jason Stopa

Fans of the summer solstice, the beach and acid should be happy with our exhibit list this August. DCKT just extended their show, “Acid Summer”, until August 30. The show is light-hearted, but serious, with a range of work from artists including Russell Tyler, Michael Dotson and Cody Hoyt among others. Mel Prest curates sound at Parallel Art Space with big list that includes Debra Ramsay, Karen Schifano, Don Voisine and more. The go-to-show this summer is James Turrell at the Guggenheim. In his first exhibit in NYC since 1980, Turrell has beautifully transformed the Guggenheim rotunda into an expansive frame filled with shifting light. WM
