5 Exhibitions You Can’t Miss This Fall
Every year, the fall brings a global gauntlet of gallery openings, museum galas, and art fairs (Frieze London and Paris+ in October, Salon Art + Design in New York and Paris Photo in November, and the perennial year-end juggernaut Art Basel Miami Beach in December, to name a few). In an effort to cut through the noise—just as we did this past summer—we selected five must-see shows this season, from New York City, to Washington, D.C., to Denver. In New York, we recommend visiting Edmund de Waal’s ethereal and evocative “this must be the place” at Gagosian and Sanford Biggers’s spirited “Meet Me on the Equinox” at Marianne Boesky Gallery—only a few doors down from each other on West 24th Street in Chelsea—then taking a quick uptown subway ride to the Museum of Modern Art on 53rd Street to check out its groundbreaking “Emerging Ecologies” architecture exhibition. In D.C., we’re eagerly awaiting Simone Leigh’s takeover of the Hirshhorn (a touring retrospective that debuted at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston earlier this year), and at the Denver Art Museum, we suggest seeing a recently opened exhibition featuring photographs by Trent Davis Bailey (full disclosure, he’s Spencer’s identical twin brother—he recently conducted a “twinterview” with him about his life and work for Ep. 97 of Time Sensitive—so of course we’re a bit biased).
