Jennifer Boysen: Trans-mutes

Cherry and Martin

September 20 through October 25, 2014

Artist Jennifer Boysen is straddling that painting-sculpture divide, stretching canvas over found objects, or structures inspired by found objects, and then painting the canvas with egg tempera (or occasionally other kinds of paint).

Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage - Haiti

Roberts & Tilton

September 13 through October 25, 2014

In his global World Stage tour, artist Kehinde Wiley visits certain countries and makes portraits reflecting his experience there. For his stop in Haiti, he started his own beauty pageant because pageants are popular in the Caribbean.

John Opera: Not Here Yet

Loudhailer

September 13 through October 25, 2014

Using the cyanotype process, John Opera makes images of "seemingly banal things encountered in daily life" that end up looking sort of mysterious and fantastical. In this new series, he's incorporating abstract forms and spots of dust or other imperfections that pop up during the printing process. 

Tim Hailand: A Possible Forest

Maloney Fine Art

Last Chance - September 13 through October 31, 2014

Artist Tim Hailand obscures photos of shirtless men and other icons, like burlesque star Dita Von Teese, with foliage and other forest-y imagery in his new show.

KAWS: Man's Best Friend

Honor Fraser

Last Chance - September 13 through October 31, 2014

For his new show, sculptor-painter-street artist KAWS blew up small details of drawings Charles M. Schultz did of his Peanuts cartoon characters. So Snoopy becomes an abstraction.

From All Sides: Tansaekhwa on Abstraction

Blum & Poe Gallery

September 13 through November 9, 2014

Tansaekhwa was a process-oriented Korean art movement that involved tearing and soaking materials and often resulted in weathered, monochromatic canvases. Joan Kee, a University of Michigan professor who studies Tansaekhwa, curated the show.

York Chang: Superficciones

Greene Exhibitions

October 4 through November 15, 2014

A rare copy of Jorge Luis Borges's Ficciones will be in this show, except there will be an extra "newly discovered" story inside of it that will be a kind of blue print for York Chang's exploration of the "relationship between representations of reality and the experience of reality itself."

Mark Dean Veca: EVERLAST | Jessica Wimbley : The Belle Series

Western Project

October 18 through November 29, 2014

Mark Dean Veca is inspired by signage and intrigued by early Looney Tunes characters, so cartoons and slogans pop up in his new paintings. Jessica Wimbley's work, digitally altered photos that have been collaged into and drawn on, are much more subdued explorations of cultural and biological history.
