We heart the New Museum, just around the corner of where I live which is so great. They have regularly changing exhibitions, and Head Gas by Italian/Berlin Artist Enrico David is on right now.

Over the past twenty years, David has produced a body of work encompassing painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage that draws upon a rich variety of sources and expresses a range of complex emotional states. Although his work is highly celebrated throughout Europe—the artist was among the nominees for the 2009 Turner Prize, for example—David’s work has rarely been exhibited in the United States.

“Head Gas” also features a new series of hand-painted paravents. These folding screens, originally conceived by the artist for his own apartment, create an architectural intervention within the exhibition space, simultaneously connecting to the images occupying the gallery.

Special offer: Receive half-price ($6) admission to the New Museum galleries when you attend a paid event the same day. Purchase your half-price ticket at the Visitor Services Desk.
