zak smith

Zak Smith's show at Fredericks & Freiser should be seen. Midnight in the Empire consists of paintings and drawings, all finely made, as well as a new "Girls In The Naked Girl Business" installment, his ongoing series of acquaintances in the sex industry. This show proves once again that Smith is extremely talented, and has interesting stories to tell.

isabel and other intimate strangers

Gagosian on Madison Avenue's newest exhibit brings together portraits by Giacometti and Francis Bacon. Isabel and Other Intimate Strangers "explores the enduring fascination of Giacometti and Bacon with the existential challenges and ineffable mysteries of the human figure and psyche, explored throughout their careers in the portraits, or likenesses, that they produced of close friends and family." Perhaps the most famous of these models was Isabel Rawsthorne.

after hippolytus

Darragh Martin's new play "After Hippolytus" will be staged this weekend at the Gene Frankel Theatre, followed immediately by "The Rainbow Monologues", eight "short and sharp new works that dip into the queer spectrum from the red heat of a first kiss to the violet glow of an elderly couple's proudly purple house."

andy warhol

Paul Kasmin Gallery's new show features polaroids taken by Warhol between 1977 - 1983. The items photographed include shoes, knives, bananas and guns, and act as an interesting peak into Warhol's art making process. He was once quoted as referring to his cameras as his "pencil and paper".

jason clay lewis

Jason Clay Lewis has a show at 31GRAND that should be seen. Always challenging, his work in Drop Dead Gorgeous "pushes the boundaries between empathy/apathy, desire/revulsion, poison/panacea, death/life, religion/blasphemy," leaving the viewer to ask: "Which is good? Which is bad? Are these judgments even possible?"
