The Philadelphia Museum of Art's survey of Michelangelo Pistoletto, From One to Many, will "trace the progression of his artistic focus from a rigorous investigation of the representations of the self in the mid-1950s to his collaborative actions of the mid-1970s that lie at the heart of many artists’ participatory practices today."

The Neue Galerie's exhibition of Otto Dix closes at the end of August. This is the "first solo museum exhibition of works by this major German artist ever held in North America," and should be seen.
"A recent addition to the Museum’s collection, Bruce Nauman’s Days (2009) was created for, and debuted at, the 2009 Venice Biennale, where the artist represented the United States with the solo exhibition Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens. Days is a “sound sculpture” consisting of a continuous stream of seven voices reciting the days of the week in random order. Fourteen suspended speakers are installed in two rows with one voice emanating from each pair of speakers as the visitor passes between them. There are men’s voices and women’s voices, old and young. Some speak swiftly, others with pause, each with his or her own cadence. The collection of distinctive voices produces a chorus—at times cacophonous, at others, resonant—and creates a sonic cocoon that envelops the visitor. The work invokes both the banality and the profundity of the passing of each day, and invites reflection on how we measure, differentiate, and commemorate time."
