The weather is finally nice and there are so many great art exhibits to see in NYC. I recommend visiting the Niki de Saint Phalle exhibition, “Joy Revolution,” at Salon 94 (on view through April 24th). This is the first exhibition at the gallery's beautiful new location on 3 East 89th Street and includes sculptures, works on paper, paintings, and furniture. The exhibition celebrates the political and historical context of the feminist artist’s practice and philosophy of radical joy. I personally loved the prints in the back - they're whimsical yet serious, fun yet smart, and not to be missed!
After viewing the exhibit, take a stroll in Central Park and enjoy the spring blooms. A great place to stop for a coffee, lunch, or small bites is Bluestone Lane. The cafe is next to the historic Church of the Heavenly Rest with great indoor and outdoor seating.
If you enjoyed "Joy Revolution," the first major US exhibition of Niki de Saint Phalle's work is now on view at MoMA PS1 through September 6th.
If you'd like a deeper dive when visiting this exhibition, book a private tour with me by reaching out at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a working artist, arts educator, and art advisor, I bring unique insights into the artist's practice and process through a highly curated experience.
