From thrilling abstractions and video work, to tender and sometimes cheeky portraits, don’t miss solo shows from Ilana Savdie, Abbey Williams, Hugh Steers, and Chloe Wise — all of which are closing soon. Scroll below for our takes.
Contributor Monica Uszerowicz also talks to poet Hanif Abdurraqib about Black performance and his new book, A Little Devil in America. (Catch his talk at the Brooklyn Academy of Music tonight.)
