David Zwirner  #MemorialDay and bank holiday hours: New York and London galleries will be closed Saturday 5/26 and Monday 5/28

“Wolfgang Tillmans: What Is Different?” at the Carré d’Art – Musée d’art contemporain, Nîmes, reflects on changes in the international political climate in recent decades, with a particular focus on right-wing populism and fake news. The major survey of the artist’s practice features portraits and abstract photographs, works related to his ongoing Truth Study Center project (begun in 2005), and posters made in support of the anti-Brexit campaign.

“I wanted to invite the public to experience Jockum’s imagination—one that is always at play—both inside and outside of the studio.” We asked @andreaanderssoncac, the Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at @CACNOLA, for her insights on the exhibition “Jockum Nordström: Why Is Everything A Rag.” The Swedish artist’s first solo exhibition at an American museum, on view through June 17, includes the site-specific installation shown here, featuring a collage of lights and cut-outs, as well as children’s books, jazz and blues vinyl covers, collages, drawings, paintings, and paper sculptures dating from the start of Nordström’s career to the present day.

Surreal, deadpan, and mischievous, Jordan Wolfson’s latest video work, “Riverboat song,” at David Zwirner’s West 19th Street gallery through June 30, features a deft combination of computer-animated vignettes, found video clips, pop soundtracks, and a monologue voiced by the artist.

“Christopher Williams: Normative Models” at @kestner_gesellschaft continues the artist’s active investigation of conventions of pictorial production and presentation. Seven key photographs are displayed within a system of eleven freestanding wall works that intervene in the architecture of the exhibition space, underscoring Williams’s self-described interest in establishing a more "mobile" position as an artist, alternately acting as "camera operator, picture editor, exhibition designer, graphic designer."

Two gallery artists set historic auction records this week: Kerry James Marshall's Past Times, purchased by @diddy at @Sothebys, set a record for the artist and was the highest price ever paid for the work of a living African-American artist, as reported by @NYTimes today. And at @Christiesinc, Joan Mitchell's 1969 painting Blueberry exceeded the late Abstract Expressionist artist's previous auction high.

“As an artist, you are always who you are until you go make new work—and then you are someone else.”

Marlene Dumas speaks with @nytimesarts on the occasion of her exhibition “Myths & Mortals,” at the West 20th Street gallery through June 30. Known for politically charged social art, Marlene Dumas here tries a new direction inspired by Shakespeare. Read the interview via link in Story.

Lisa Yuskavage, born on this day, has developed her own genre of portraiture in which women (and more recently men) are cast within fantastical landscapes or dramatically lit interiors. Seamlessly blending pop cultural imagery, color theory, and psychology, Yuskavage draws on classical and modern painterly techniques and, in particular, marshals color as a conduit for complex psychological constructs.
