One of the more engaging sculpture shows we saw in Chelsea, Isa Genzken: New Work is at once playful and sober-minded. While the wall work captures more of my aesthetic interest, the series of modified wheelchairs (each is an individual work, not one large installation), is haunting in its implications.
David Zwirner seems to always be a worthwhile stop. Toba Khedoori‘s paintings are clever and lovely, and Francis Alÿs‘s intensive project, SOMETIMES DOING SOMETHING POETIC CAN BECOME POLITICAL AND SOMETIMES DOING SOMETHING POLITICAL CAN BECOME POETIC is meaty as well as visually compelling.
