9 ART EVENTS TO ATTEND IN NEW YORK CITY THIS WEEK

Posted on November 16, 2015

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19

Opening: Nikolai Ishchuk at Denny Gallery
Nikolai Ishchuk’s work could be considered photography, but it looks like anything but that. The London-based artist’s work is largely about destroying or distorting photographic images, twisting and turning his prints until they seem closer to sculptures or paintings. The joy of Ishchuk’s work is trying to figure out what the artist sees as being similar between photography and the other mediums he’s in dialogue with. Here, for his new show at Denny gallery, titled “Penumbra,” he’s mostly concerned with sculpture. What happens when a photography leaps off the wall and becomes another object entirely? The answers, though decidedly cryptic and abstract, are fascinating.
Denny Gallery, 261 Broome Street, 6–8 p.m.
