The New Museum has put together a huge summer show. “After Nature” showcases more than ninety works of art spanning three floors of the building. The theme proposed in this exhibit is one of a gloomy future. Feelings concerning the dystopian stress of the exhibition aside, it is worth the trip just to extend a gaze toward the untitled installation by Maurizio Cattelan (above).
“After Nature” also includes work from Allora and Calzadilla, Pawe Althamer, Micol Assaël, Fikret Atay, Roger Ballen, Huma Bhabha, William Christenberry, Roberto Cuoghi, Bill Daniel, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Nathalie Djurberg, Reverend Howard Finster, Nancy Graves, Werner Herzog, Robert Kusmirowski, Zoe Leonard, Klara Liden, Erik van Lieshout, Diego Perrone, Thomas Schütte, Dana Schutz, Tino Sehgal, August Strindberg, Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, and Artur Zmijewski.
