Sculpture and Tapas in Chelsea

Don’t miss out on two great sculpture/installation exhibits in Chelsea: Carol Bove at David Zwirner (537 W 20th Street) and Ugo Rondinone at Gladstone (530 W 21st Street). I really love the long, vertical red lines in Carol Bove’s sculptures against the backdrop of painted black walls. You can also see Bove’s sculptures at The Metropolitan Museum in the niches on the museum’s facade.

One block up, you can see Ugo Rondinone’s “Nuns and Monks,” three brightly colored, very monumental sculptures within a steel gray setting. My favorite sculpture in the show is “Orange Yellow NUN,” 2021. Both exhibits are more than sculpture shows, they are truly remarkable experiences.

Looking to stop for a drink and tapas? I recommend Tia Pol (205 10th Avenue, between 22nd and 23rd Street).

If you'd like a deeper dive when visiting these exhibitions, book a private tour with me by reaching out at 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.
