3 Shows to see before Monday
1. Kate Ericson & Mel Ziegler, Galerie Perrotin
(July 8 - August 22)
Ericson & Ziegler’s art abandoned the few, urban cities in which American art culture tends to be centralized to return to the heartland. The artists created work that aimed to examine and represent the cultural majority of Americans, often ignored by the cosmopolitan art world. It speaks to the national importance of the duo’s work that a French gallery is exhibiting the retrospective (bringing it stateside after a successful show in Paris).

2. Louise Lawler No Drones, Metro Pictures
(June 5 - July 25)
Through her unique artistic process, in which she traces her photographs and then prints these tracings on vinyl, Lawler manages to distill complex images and moments down to their aesthetic essence. She displays an array of scenes in egalitarian simplicity, examining what lays at the center of these moments.

3. Marcel Duchamp, Gagosian Gallery
(June 26 - August 8)
Gagosian exhibits Duchamp’s historic readymades in the same building in which they debuted half a century ago. Thus this is a truly unique show of the work of one the most renown avant-garde artists of all time.
