Amid the growing inequities of the pandemic, art workers, artists, and activists are continuing to push back against the grip of billionaires and corporations in arts institutions.

Across town, there’s reason to rejoice: Lorraine O'Grady’s first retrospective is now on view at the Brooklyn Museum. As Alexandra Thomas writes, Both/And sets the galleries “ablaze with the radical gestures and eccentric poetics of an incomparable artist.”
Also worth catching: Izumi Kato’s ethereal show at Perrotin, Chloe Wise’s painterly and pop culture-inflected critiques at Almine Rech, and so much more.
