With spring right around the corner, art in New York City is already in full bloom. And after the long-awaited return of daylight saving time on March 12, gallery hopping will become much more pleasant. So without further ado, here’s a list of shows that touched us and ones that we look forward to seeing this March, including Hew Locke, Saif Azzuz, Miyoko Ito, Asia Week New York, and more.
When you hear there’s a new Hew Locke exhibition coming, you know it’s going to be good. This one doesn’t disappoint. Upon entering the gallery, you’ll see two wooden ships suspended from the ceiling and wonder in which oceans and rivers they were supposed to sail. You’ll see a haunted plantation house, crumbling stilt homes, land certificates, and relics of colonial might and crushed nations. And as you look deeper into these wonderful works, truths begin to unfold. —HB
