Food in New York. Bigger Than the Plate

@ The Museum of NYC

Through Sept 30, 2023

Food is a powerful social network binding New Yorkers to each other and with countless others across the globe. The city's raucous restaurant scene; its ubiquitous street food; the current activist efforts to source food locally; the world's largest food market in Hunts Point; and the artists, thinkers, and designers who are imagining new sustainable ways to relate to food, will all be part of Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate.

The exhibition will examine the challenging nodes and networks of the city’s food systems. Anchored around issues of sustainability, labor justice, and equitable access to food, the show will explore the ways in which artists and designers are developing solutions to these global and local challenges. First developed at London's Victoria and Albert Museum and now adapted and updated to look at eating and food systems in the Big Apple, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate is an invitation to feast for a more equitable and exciting future.


New Yorkers and visitors alike are posting their favorite dishes, restaurants, snacks, and meals. Share your favorite food in New York with #FoodInNYC and be featured on screens in the gallery!

David Hockney

20 Flowers and Some Bigger Pictures

@ Pace Gallery

Jan 13 – Feb 25, 2023


Pace is pleased to present 20 Flowers and Some Bigger Pictures, an exhibition of recent iPad paintings by David Hockney.

This exhibition expands on a series of iPad paintings the artist made while quarantining at his studio and 17th century house in Normandy during the pandemic. Inspired by his daily observations, Hockney devoted himself to the iPad, a medium of unique immediacy that allowed him to be prolific in his depictions of his home, the changing seasons, and surrounding countryside. This show will mark Hockney’s ninth solo exhibition with Pace since his first major presentation with the gallery in 2009.

Pace’s presentation of David Hockney: 20 Flowers and Some Bigger Pictures will be the final iteration of the international exhibition which was jointly presented by Annely Juda Fine Art in London; Galerie Lelong & Co. in Paris; GRAY in Chicago; and L.A. Louver in Los Angeles this fall.

Jimmy DeSana: Submission

@ Brooklyn Museum

Through Apr 16, 2023

Jimmy DeSana: Submission is the first museum survey of work by a significant yet overlooked figure in the histories of photography, New York City, and LGBTQ artists. From his time photographing suburban landscapes in Atlanta, Georgia, to his role in the New York punk scenes, Jimmy DeSana (American, 1949–1990) conveyed the radical spirit of his era through an irreverent critique of the American Dream and its images. The exhibition traces his brief yet prolific career through nearly two hundred works on view (some for the first time) and over twenty years that bridged mail-art networks, New York’s 1970s and ’80s subcultures, the illuminating image-play of the “Pictures Generation,” and various responses to HIV/AIDS.

As part of punk aesthetics and its symbolic forms of resistance, DeSana and his peers sought to forge art communities outside of official institutions. The exhibition showcases his extensive involvement in zines, artist collectives, performance art, experimental film, and club culture. In his major series—101 Nudes (1972), Submission (1977–79), and Suburban (1979–84)—DeSana photographed himself and friends (often nude and faceless) in and around bland suburban homes, creating an interplay among sexual liberation, queer aesthetics, and consumerist conformity. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, DeSana was heavily involved in New York’s punk and No Wave scenes and photographed prominent creatives for album covers and alternative publications. This exhibition will be the first to feature his portraits of art and music luminaries such as Kathy Acker, Laurie Anderson, Kenneth Anger, Patti Astor, David Byrne, John Giorno, Debbie Harry, and Richard Hell. Accompanying these works are DeSana’s more abstract efforts from the late 1980s, after he contracted HIV, that show an artist who resisted dominant narratives about the body and sexuality in the early years of the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Stan Douglas, Elmgreen & Dragset
and Kehinde Wiley

@ Moynihan Train Hall

Moynihan Train Hall opened with site-specific installations by Stan Douglas (Penn Station’s Half Century, 2020), Elmgreen & Dragset (The Hive, 2020) and Kehinde Wiley (Go, 2020)—the artists' first permanent commissions in the City. The pieces reflect on the building's architecture and history, specifically the ties between the 1912 Farley Post Office—converted home to the new train hall—and the original Pennsylvania Station, which opened across the street from the post office two years prior to the Farley Building's construction.
