(Through 4/1) Whether or not you lived in NYC during the ’50s and ’60s, the art scene you’ve enjoyed here since then owes a lot to the artist-run galleries of those decades. This show explores those galleries and the artists they championed — which gives you a chance to see work by some of the 20th-century’s greatest NYC painters, sculptors and filmmakers. Among those represented in this show are Louise Bourgeois, Red Grooms (seen in the photo above transporting his artwork to the Reuben Gallery), Yayoi Kusama, Romare Bearden, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Morris, Dan Flavin… the list goes on (see all galleries and artists). Events during the run of the show — from panels and talks to film screenings — shed further light on the art scene of that era (see the full program calendar).
