It’s hard to believe that Mnuchin’s collaboration with Fergus McCaffrey gallery represents the first exhibition solely dedicated to the works of New York’s Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) and Japan’s Gutai master Kazuo Shiraga (1924–2008). The formal affinity between these two artists’ gestural bravado is so striking and visceral, you can’t help but wonder: What took so long? For the lovers of abstract painting, there’s probably no better exhibition in town at the moment. Run, don’t walk to catch it before it closes.
Location: Mnuchin Gallery, 45 East 78th Street, New York
Time: Tuesday–Saturday, 10 am – 5:30 pm
