Jeff Koons, Carol Rama, Anish Kapoor, and Robert Rauschenberg. These are the names you hear about among art enthusiasts in New York right now. And with good reason: here’s why these are the exhibitions of the moment.


Jeff Koons: Seated Ballerina

It would be impossible to overlook her. Almost 14-metres-tall, the gigantic inflatable ballerina by Jeff Koons towers above the square in front of the Rockefeller Center (until June 2nd). It is reminiscent of a delicate porcelain figurine, which, instead of finding itself amid ancient laces, has been placed in the midst of skyscrapers. A project by Art Production Fund and Kiehl’s Since 1851 everyone is raving about. Even on social media (read also → Una ballerina a Manhattan).

Carol Rama: Antibodies

The largest American exhibition of the works by one of the most interesting Italian artists of the last century: Carol Rama. On display until September 9th, besides paintings and drawings, also objects and installations that talk about her magnetic interest for the human body always linked, by the eccentric and independent-minded Turin native, to concepts like sacrifice, desire, repression, and liberation. A must-see.

Anish Kapoor: Descension

The much-treasured Public Art Fund, which realised some of the most interesting works of public art in the world, celebrates its first 40 years with a spectacular installation. Until September 10th, in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be on show Anish Kapoor’s famed work Descension: a water eddy being constantly sucked into a hypnotic vortex. For the occasion, it was decided not to dye the water black, but to leave it in its natural colour, to achieve a direct connection with the adjacent East River.

Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends!          

Until September 17th, MoMA presents the first 21st century retrospective dedicated to the renowned American artist, one of the forerunners of the Pop Art movement. Over 250 pieces are on display, including paintings, sculptures, and photos, as well as audio and video recordings, which document Rauschenberg’s contributions in the fields of dance and performing art.  An open monograph, as defined by the organisers, who wanted to show also the works of other prominent artists (among them, John Cage, Cy Twombly, and Susan Weil) Rauschenberg had an intense exchange of ideas with.
