Christian Boltanski’s show at the Park Avenue Armory, No Man’s Land, deals with “individuality, anonymity, life and death, in an immersive landscape that is both powerful and infernal.” See it before it closes on June 13.

Piet van den Boog’s show at Mike Weiss, I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, is well done and should be seen.

norbert prangenberg

Norbert Prangenberg is showing at Betty Cuningham. Known primarily as a sculptor, these paintings “are all small, ranging from 10 x 8 inches to approximately 27 x 20 inches. Prangenberg paints on a variety of surfaces: cardboard, wood, metal, and occasionally canvas, often allowing a portion of the foundation or ground to peak through the paint. The artist uses brushstrokes, finger marks, varying densities of paint and intensities of color resulting in a vibrant tactile surface. And to anchor the thickly impastoed surface, Prangenberg introduces either a simple, non-narrative geometric form, or a picture within a picture, a small area of intense color that contrasts to the larger painting.”
