Where to Find Three Mega-Watt Art Stars This Spring (Hint: It’s Not An Art Fair)
Here at Sight Unseen, we’re mostly about uncovering new talents and championing those who are just starting to hit it big. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have our megawatt star-power favorites. And while we love bopping around art fairs as much as the person, we find it’s often more satisfying to view works by a single artist in the quietude of a gallery setting (no weekend afternoons allowed, thanks). So today we’re rounding up three gallery shows worth seeing this spring, including a retrospective by California Light & Space pioneer (and longtime obsession) DeWain Valentine, a Parisian exhibition starring new large-scale photos by Candida Höfer, and the man we once called the “patron saint of Sight Unseen,” Donald Judd. Here are some of our favorite works on view.
DeWain Valentine at Almine Rech, New York
Candida Höfer at VNH Gallery, Paris
Donald Judd at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris
