CULT EDITOR'S TOP EVENTS TO HIT THIS WEEK
ART: FIRST SHOW / LAST SHOW @ 190 Bowery
MAY 19th, 5PM-8PM, at 190 Bowery, New York, NY 10012
"Vito Schnabel is pleased to announce the opening of FIRST SHOW / LAST SHOW, a group exhibition at 190 Bowery on May 16th, 2015. Featured artists include Joe Bradley, Dan Colen, Jeff Elrod, Ron Gorchov, Mark Crotjahn, Harmony Korine, and Julian Schnabel. The artists included in FIRST SHOW / LAST SHOW are seven of my favorite painters. I have had the privilege of living with some of their works and have long wanted to show them together. There are very few artists whose work immediately conveys its significance, like each of these seven. They represent three generations of great American contemporary art, ranging in age from 35 to 85" -- Aly Rosen

ART: 60 AMERICANS
MAY 21st - JUNE 14th, at Elga Wimmer Gallery, 526 W. 26th St, New York, NY 10001
’60 Americans’ is a response to the ill-gotten gains of flipper based collectors, money corrupted and trend obsessed gallerists, shopping mall (puppy mill/factory) inspired art fairs, nepotism and favoritism of the made men and women of fast track MFA programs in America. This exhibition will offer an alternative perspective on what’s arguably relevant and important in the current landscape of American contemporary art. Check it out to see the latest work from one of our CULT chat features, Adam Krueger.
