    In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Andy Warhol’s contribution to the 1964 New York World’s Fair, the Queens Museum shows nine paintings made with the screens the artist used to create the controversial 13 Most Wanted Men, 1964, a work that depicted the enlarged mug shots of thirteen of the NYPD’s most-wanted criminals of 1962. Another 175 related objects are also on view.

    For Maria Lassnig’s most significant survey ever presented in the United States, MoMA PS1 exhibits fifty of the artist’s paintings as well as a selection of watercolors and filmic works—most of which have never been shown in the US. The included works span all periods of the artist’s career, from her early graphic abstractions produced in Paris to her later figural representations.

    For “Here and Elsewhere,” curator Massimiliano Gioni aims to counter any notion that contemporary art in the Arab world might be homogeneous. Instead, his large survey of art in the Middle East—including works by forty-five artists from fifteen countries—focuses on a group with practices that might conceptually or aesthetically reference the Middle East, but which extend far beyond the purview of mere geography.

Curator Scott Rothkopf has reconstituted groundbreaking series in a chronological narrative that asserts Koons 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.

    Following Benglis’s first-ever UK survey at Thomas Dane in 2012, the current exhibition presents a new series by the American artist who is best known for her flamboyant feminist responses to New York’s predominantly male Minimalist art scene in the 1960s. Benglis’s latest works are ceramic sculptures—a medium that has been important part of the artist’s oeuvre since 1990—which she has pulled, pinched, and crushed before glazing them in a wide spectrum of color.

    Tony Smith’s third exhibition at Timothy Taylor focuses on the celebrated Minimalist sculptor’s lesser-known early paintings. Initially surprising for their bright colors, Smith’s paintings anticipate his later three-dimensional works with their harmonious compositions of abstract forms. Several geometric bronze sculptures are also on view.

The regular, slow pulse of the bulb, whose light fades from bright to dark, relates to Whittlesea’s ongoing exploration of Mazdaznan breathing techniques taught by abstract painter Johannes Itten at the Bauhaus art school in the 1920s.

    This retrospective dedicated to Italian artist Giulio Paolini collects fifty years of work in which the artist ponders the relationship between viewer and artwork. Having begun his career as part of the Arte Povera movement in the 1960s, Paolini remains relevant with recent works that raise questions about authorship and materiality in today’s digital age.

The plant, which has appeared in the artist’s work since 1948 as a form of self-portraiture, is most dramatically presented here in a series of bronzes—the largest sculptures the artist has made in this medium to date—installed in the garden.

    Gilbert & George’s recent series “Scapegoating Pictures for London” features a motif of nitrous oxide canisters—known as “whippets” or “hippy crack” when used recreationally—whose bomb-like forms evoke current-event issues ranging from drug abuse to warfare and terrorism. Emphasizing these paintings’ sinister nature, the artists themselves variably appear as skeletons or masked figures.

    Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball’s large-scale installation for the historic Hamburger Banhof hall focuses on what the artist calls “biographies of things.” Borrowing objects from various Berlin museum collections, Deball draws the viewer’s attention to the itinerant nature of these art objects, which, over time, have alternately been installed on pedestals and in vitrines; inside galleries and in outdoor courtyards; and in the context of private collections and public exhibitions.

Continuing the artist's philosophical exploration of reality, which is heavily influenced by Michel Foucault, Grasso's latest creations are rooted in the real world and simultaneously full of anachronisms and fantasy.

    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.”
