Mickalene Thomas: How to Organize a Room Around a Striking Piece of Art at Lehmann Maupin Gallery. The mixed media installation was a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to her mother, Sandra Bush (1951–2012).

Complementing the wildly popular “Event of a Thread” exhibition at Park Avenue Armory, Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl presented works by Ann Hamilton.

Luhring Augustine was showing Glenn Ligon: Neon, works that I always enjoy; and I was delighted to see pieces that had never before been exhibited in New York.

Charles Ray at Matthew Marks Gallery, an exhibition of three new works in solid stainless steel. I found Sleeping Woman to be the most compelling, depicting a “bag lady” asleep on a bench, underwear creeping over her waistline, hair matted down and dirt on her shoes—though I also enjoyed Shoe Tie, cleverly positioning the nude in the familiar pose, though he wears no shoes.

El Anatsui: Pot of Wisdom  at Jack Shainman Gallery—all but one of the Ghana-born artist’s work was from 2012, and the new works take new shapes and color combinations, while remaining true to Anatsui’s celebrated style.
