LEWIS TEAGUE WRIGHT: YEAH WE SELL HALF PINTS, BUT YOU HAVE TO ORDER TWO | WESTMINSTER WASTE
Westminster Waste isn’t only a recycling station, but also an art gallery. Their current show is a solo exhibition of Lewis Teague Wright. Just like his long titles, his work contains a lot of humor.

STUDIO JOB MAD HOUSE | MAD MUSEUM
Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel in foundry
Studio Job was originally founded in 2000 in Antwerp, Belgium. Conceived uniquely for MAD, this artist couple is bringing an immersive installation which contains art objects, furniture, sculpture, lighting, interiors, and wall and floor coverings, to New York. Interdisciplinary pieces that are difficult to put in one specific category, creating the modern version of a cabinet of curiosities.

The premiere ‘New Museum of Contemporary art’ has new neighbours: ICP Museum. ‘Public, Private, Secret’ is their premiere exhibition. Curator Charlotte Coton brings together artists that explore privacy in visual culture, with familiar (some surprising) names as Kim Kardashian, Andy Warhol, Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman and other promising active artists like Natalie Bookchin (video) and Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin (gelatin silver prints). The exhibition should be seen as a physical experience.
