June 2013: Whitehot Watch


By Jason Stopa

So far June has been surprising. There are a bunch of solo shows worth seeing. First, is Wolfgang Tillmans photographs at Andrea Rosen. This tastefully curated show is full of uncanny contrasts. Some of these works are subtle, others obvious, but all of them mysterious and jarring. Joe Bradley at Gavin Brown and John Zurier at Peter Blum are painter’s retreats. See Bradley for his uninhibited, abstract-figurative paintings. See Zurier for his refined, delicate touch. There is always a spread of summer group shows, and no doubt many more will come. We recommend “The Wild Bunch”, “What I Like About You” and “Dying on Stage.” Our top list follows:

“Wolfgang tillmans: from Neue Welt” will be on view until June 22, 2013
