Round Up: 6 Best Art Shows to See this Week


Spring has finally arrived to the party. The sunshine has peaked through the clouds and a new cycle of blooming is in full effect. With Spring bringing new flora into the air, the surfaces of beloved galleries are also flourishing with work from some of our favorite artists.  Here’s some of our picks on what you want to check out this week.

Cali Thornhill Dewitt‘s War Song – V1 Gallery, Copenhagen

Dewitt’s solo gallery encompasses his interpretation of the Anthropocene and how human behavior, consumerism in particular, is destroying our natural habitat. Pieces include mediums of fine digital print with strikes of acrylic.

Harmony Korine’s Young Twitchy – Gagosian, New York City

Korine’s vibrant pieces are recreated from images taken on his iPhone around his home in Florida. He then added vibrant mystical “alien-like friends” to fulfill the cosmic atmosphere.

Austin Lee‘s Feel Good – Jeffrey Deitch, New York City

Lee combines the latest image-making technology with traditional artistic processes to create energetic images and sculptures. Utilizing across-the-spectrum mediums, the result is a playful and vibrant body of work that embodies a contemporary vision. 

Joakim Ojanen‘s Snake Pit – The Hole, New York City

Snake Pit showcases a unique universe filled with goofy dogs, hairy legs and of course, snakes. As this is Ojanen’s most ambitious installation yet, it emulates a playful and bright atmosphere.

Willie Stewart‘s In Between Days – Moran Moran, Los Angeles

In his first LA-based solo exhibition, In Between Days emulates a metaphorical transcendence on how we regard and arrange time. With eleven paintings and a video piece, Stewart creates an atmospheric environment with hallucinogenic tropes that fall back to memories, mementos and reminiscing. 

Heji Shin‘s Kanye – Buccholzin, Berlin

Shin’s photography of immense portraits of Kanye West fill the walls of Buccholzin. With the social climate West has been stirring up, Shin disregards the comments of what he has said and instead embraces the artistic figure himself.
