    Carl Andre’s conviction to form comes through in this show, which presents sculptures in cedar, sandstone, and steel, created over a period of thirty years. The striated bricks in the “Isohedron” series engage the capacious gallery, beckoning at works like Ferox and Ninth Steel Corner, which sit weathered and rusted at the back of the space. A retrospective of the artist is currently on view at the Dia:Beacon.

    Louise Lawler’s “tracings"—sketches of photographs featuring artworks in private collections and storage houses—are the subject of her latest exhibition at Metro Pictures. Printed on vinyl and mounted directly to the wall, the works lend themselves to a range of concerns, from the malleability of the photograph to the mechanics of the market and the artist’s negotiation of that increasingly Brobdingnagian machine.

    Fifty years after their American debut, Marcel Duchamp’s editioned readymades—including Fountain, Bicycle Wheel, Hat Rack, and Traveler’s Folding Item—are again on view, and in the same building in which they were originally presented. The issues of artistic integrity addressed in that show, which paralleled the rise of Pop and presaged the appropriationist methods deployed by artists of the Pictures Generation, haunt this one, too. With the Jeff Koons retrospective right down the road, this exhibition couldn’t be better timed.

    For Brazilian artist Lygia Clark's first comprehensive exhibition in North America, MoMA presents three hundred of the artist's drawings, paintings, sculptures, and participatory works from the late 1940s to the early 1980s. The survey, drawn from both public and private collections, organizes the artist’s work into three key themes: abstraction, Neo-concretism, and the “abandonment” of art.

    The first comprehensive US survey of Italian Futurism presents more than three hundred works including everything from painting and sculpture to architecture, fashion, film, advertising, free-form poetry, music, theater, and performance. Organized by Vivien Greene, the Guggenheim’s curator of nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century work, the exhibition chronicles the movement from its feverish inception in 1909 with F. T. Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto to its quietus as Word War II drew to a close.

    This exhaustive retrospective is the first to examine Jeff Koons’s career in its entirety. Curator Scott Rothkopf, associate director of programs at the Whitney, has reconstituted Koons’s groundbreaking series in a chronological narrative that asserts the artist as one of the most crucial artists of the postwar era. The weighty catalogue, with texts by Isabelle Graw, Rachel Kushner, Michelle Kuo, Jeffrey Deitch, and Antonio Damasio, among others, promises to be a summer read like no other.

    Jimmie Durham takes over the entire bi-level gallery with two site-specific installations. On the ground floor, oil barrels painted with “chameleon” automobile paint, which changes colors depending on one’s perspective, are scattered amid brightly colored animal skeletons, car parts, and plastic pipes leaking mysterious fluids. The wall installation on the first floor, by contrast, is sparse and sober, featuring a black-and-white drawing of animals.

Shown in the large hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie, Pienne’s handpainted slides create an experience that the artist has described as a “poetic journey through space.”

The subjects of her current exhibition include a Romanesque medieval abbey, a radio telescope in Germany, and a forest in upstate New York.

In addition to his well-known nudes, flowers, and portraits, the exhibition features less frequently exhibited photographs of bronze and marble sculptures as well as a selection of his own three-dimensional works. (Across the Seine, at the Musée Rodin, Mapplethorpe’s photographs are juxtaposed with plaster and bronze works by the nineteenth-century French sculptor; through September 21.)

The human-scale of Shapiro’s monochrome and polychrome constructions’ and the fact that they are presented without pedestals affirms the objects’ real-world presence, even in the context of the white-cube gallery space.

    Complementing the Robert Mapplethorpe retrospective at the Grand Palais, the Musée Rodin juxtaposes more than one hundred works by the twentieth-century American photographer with plaster and bronze sculptures by the nineteenth-century French master. Striking comparisons abound between the two artists’ appreciation of the human form.

    The current retrospective of self-taught artist Martial Raysse features more than 200 works—paintings, sculptures, films, photographs, and drawings—made over the course of a fifty-year career that brought the artist together with the likes of Yves Klein, Raymond Hains, Jean Tinguely, and Jacques Villeglé. Pushing beyond Raysse’s affiliation with the new realist movement, the exhibition highlights the artist’s individual position: “the hygiene of vision.”

    For his second show at Prometeogallery, Iraqi-born Berlin-based Hiwa-K presents an installation comprised of sixteen black-and-white TV sets. The televisions, whose screens are decorated with colorful plastic cutouts, reference the artist’s youth in Iraqi Kurdistan in the 1970s, when it was common to add color to black-and-white programs by covering TV screens with green, red, yellow, or blue plastic film.

    Working in collaboration, the artists Thomas Grünfeld and Gary Hume have created an artistic dialogue specifically for MDC’s Milan gallery. Featuring several new pieces by both artists, the exhibition juxtaposes Grünfeld’s felt sculptures, mirror installations, and “Eye Paintings” with Hume’s similarly shiny, reflective, and mysterious paintings and sculptures. The overall installation is a unique mise-en-scène that simultaneously represents a singular world vision and two distinctly separate universes.
