Summer 2017 New York City Art Guide

Carianne Carleo-Evangelist

The New York City art scene has exciting summer exhibitions every direction you look. There’s experimental art to be found up on the rooftop of The Met—Adrián Villar Rojas’ The Theater of Disappearance—and down on the ground at Brooklyn Bridge Park, courtesy of Anish Kapoor’s whirlpool. Motion is also explored in the Studio Museum’s Jamel Shabazz: Crossing 125th and the Whitney Museum’s display of Alexander Calder’s mobiles. Read on for our summer art picks.
