Art on Camera: Photographs by Shunk-Kender, 1960–1971
The Museum of Modern Art
The photographers Harry Shunk and János Kender worked together under the name Shunk-Kender from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Shunk-Kender photographed artworks, events, and landmark exhibitions of avant-garde movements of the era, from Nouveau réalisme to Earth art. This exhibition features a selection from the more than 600 works from the Shunk-Kender Photography Collection that recently entered MoMA’s collection, as part of a major donation from the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation to an international consortium of five institutions.

Kim Gordon-“Design Office: The City Is A Garden”
Absent the touring and all the rest, Gordon has the time to devote more attention to her paintings and sculpture, the latest of which is being showcased in her solo debut with Chelsea’s 303 Gallery. The exhibit, “Design Office: The City Is A Garden,” is up until July 24, but if you want a sense of what to expect, check out our preview. You might find that the tone of her work, which is about New York’s dizzying pace of gentrification, is not unlike the music that made her famous.
