The Week In Images
In this international look at the week’s exhibitions, a hallucinatory scene unfolds in a drawing by Roland Reiss at Robert Bernman Gallery. Jordanian artist Hilda Hiary, initially trained in political science and sociology, delves into the politics of the Middle East and Northern Africa. Julian Rosefeldt painstakingly collects stills from soap operas and reality shows, a catalog of the ways television has conditioned our day-to-day interactions.
Featured Artists include Cerith Wyn Evans, Nick Veasey, Vlado Martek, Sheela Gowda, Zhang Dali, Leslie Wayne, John Henderson, Navin Rawanchaikul, and Haris Epaminonda.
