Though it may seem that Armory Week and Frieze Week get all the action, the reality is that there is never a dull moment in the New York art world. From the East Side to the West Side, theres always something happening at the citys museums, galleries, and various event spaces. That was the case this week, with the Jake and Dinos Chapmanshow at UTA Artist Space in Los Angeles,timed to the opening of theArt Los Angeles Contemporary fair; the wider Americanart scene also provides plenty of action. Heres a rundown of this weeks highlights.
Celebration for Sarah Crowners NewSite-Specific Installation at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museums Wright Restaurant The Guggenheim celebrated the unveiling of new work by Sarah Crowner in its Wright Restaurant with a reception on February 2. Its the first change in decor since the upscale eatery, which previously featured site-specific work by Liam Gillick, opened in 2009.
Crowners design marries her hard-edge geometric painting, on a canvas that hugs the curve of the restaurants back wall, with large, hand-glazed terra-cotta tiles in a chevron mosaic pattern, which cover the floor (off-white), the entry wall (bright yellow), and the wall behind the bar (vibrant sea green). The painting is inspired by a tapestrydesigned by Swedish painter Lennart Reodhe for a Stockholm restaurant in 1961 and made by a Swedish womens weaving collective, and the tiles are the handiwork of her friend and regular collaboratorJos No Suro at hisCermica Suroworkshop in Guadalajara, Mexico.
We brought a little bit of Mexico to the Upper East Side, and thats a beautiful thing! Crowner told guests.
Sarah is very rare in that shes a painter that works with space in a very thoughtful and direct way, Guggenheim curator of contemporary art Katherine Brinson told artnet News. The museum acquired a piece, titled Totem, by Crowner for its permanent collection in 2015, so when it came to redesigning the Wright, I just thought she was a natural choice.
Brinson praised Crowners work on the project, saying she thought in so much depth about how the space would function on a very practical level, but also about this unique building that is, as we say, the greatest artifact in our collection.

Opening reception for Jake and Dinos Chapmans To Live and Think Like Pigs at UTA Artist Space, Los Angeles January 28 marked the opening reception for UK favorites Jake and Dinos Chapmans new show, titled To Live and Think Like Pigs, at the UTA Artist Space in Los Angeles. In their usual anti-aesthetic manner, the brothers aim to startle viewers with compositions that raise questions about religious beliefs, moral standards and political tradition, a topic that feels extremely timely. The show explores darker themes including human decay, Nazi war crimes, Satanism, and conflict. Yet the crowd that turned out for the opening was decidedly not somber, despite the material on view. Spotted in the mix were UTAs Joshua Roth; musician and former husband of Kate Moss, rocker Jamie Hince; musician Courtney Love; and comedians Whitney Cummings and Sebastian Maniscalco.
