What’s On This Week l New York, March 1st-7th
Vanessa Prager: In The Pink – last chance
Inspired by the #MeToo movement and other hopeful signs of the declining patriarchy, the LA-based artist Vanessa Prager takes back image production of women’s bodies from exploitative masculinist culture in her second exhibition at The Hole. Using a color scheme evoking Francois Boucher and French Rococo with Impressionist brush strokes, the fourteen canvases present women exposing themselves. The series serves as a female take on the female nude, a topic that for centuries has been dominated by male artists.
Closes on March 4th at 7pm.

Tania Bruguera, Untitled (Havana, 2000) – rare opportunity to experience this seminal work of art
This installation embodies the Cuban artist and activist Tania Bruguera’s notoriously complex relationship to authority. Combining milled sugarcane, video footage of Fidel Castro, and live performance presented in near-total darkness, Untitled (Havana, 2000) evokes the contradictions of life in the wake of the Cuban Revolution. The work was first presented at the 7th Havana Biennial in 2000 where it was on view for mere hours before being shut down by the Cuban government. The piece is now in MoMA’s collection.
Closes on March 11th
