Every Art Exhibit You Need to See in NYC This Fall
From “Wayne’s World” to Warhol
Fall is about more than foliage, knit scarves and pumpkin-spice lattes (although that stuff is pretty great, too).
It’s also time to get up close and personal with Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup cans at MoMA, a fashion queen’s clothing collection at FIT and Remy the Rat at Cooper Hewitt.
Check out the ten art exhibits in NYC you can’t miss this fall.
“SURFACE BODY / ACTION SPACE”
You’ve seen José Parlá’s epic mural in the lobby of 1 World Trade--now check out a collection of new paintings and sculptures by the celebrated Cuban-American artist. Even more awesome: the exhibit spans two NYC galleries.
“THE RISE OF SNEAKER CULTURE”
Get your kicks at this exhibition of more than 150 pairs of sneakers, from 1917 Converse All Stars to the iconic Air Jordans of the ?80s and beyond.
Through October 4 at the Brooklyn Museum
“ANDY WARHOL: CAMPBELL’S SOUP CANS AND OTHER WORKS”
To conserve space, Warhol’s iconic soup can screenprints are typically displayed in a grid. For the first time at MoMA, see them in a line, as they were initially displayed at Los Angeles’s Ferus Gallery in 1962.
Through October 12 at the Museum of Modern Art
“FASHION UNDERGROUND: THE WORLD OF SUSANNE BARTSCH”
Before Lady Gaga, there was NYC nightlife queen Susanne Bartsch, who hosts fabulous parties in even more fabulous outfits. Her personal clothing collection is on display, featuring looks by Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.
September 18 through December 5 at FIT
“PIXAR: THE DESIGN OF STORY”
How did Remy the Rat become a Hollywood superstar? Track the creation of Toy Story, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up and more with rarely seen sketches, paintings and sculptures of Pixar’s most popular characters.
October 8 through August 7, 2016, at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
