New York: Portraits of New York Commuters, Pre-Pandemic

New York
Mar 17, 2021 • View in browser
This week, learn about the under-sung women of the Arte Povera movement with a new spring lecture series from Magazzino Italian Art.
Around town, Daniella Brito peruses De Lo Mío, an intriguing if occasionally paradoxical exhibition of contemporary Dominican art. As Brito writes, the works on view “[usher] viewers into a steamy, and ultimately unforgiving climate.”
And don’t miss David Rothenberg’s nostalgic portraits of Queens commuters. Shot pre-pandemic, they’ve become a time capsule we didn’t know we needed.
