On the way back from Dubai, I stopped in New York for a few days to process my jetlag and catch up on a few shows.   The Jenny Holzer  exhibition at the Whitney is dynamic.  Holzer creates sculpture out of text, seduces with light and movement , all the while keeping the content probing and relevant.   The show has that Wow Factor that is especially heady on the Whitney’s fourth floor.  Whitney Museum

There were a number of worthy gallery shows, some with gratifying red dots on the price list.  Among them was Gordon Cheung’s show at Jack Shainman and Kamrooz Aram at Perry Rubinstein, also on the cover of Art in America, March issue.  The real standout was Lisa Yuskavage’s exhibition at David Zwirner.  Her paint and  provocation are a signficant force.  Definitely not a show you would see in Dubai!  David Zwirner Gallery
