New York is ever crammed full of amazing art. Here are just some of the shows going on right now through mid-June that you, yes you, should really go check out.

Alison Elizabeth Taylor

Alison Elizabeth Taylor is a talented multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She is now showing Foreclosed through June 19th at James Cohan Gallery (533 West 26th Street, New York, NY), a show in which her wood grain patterns capture moments in rural areas.

Hyun Ju Park

Hyun Ju Park‘s Out Of Darkness….Light is on display throuh June 14th at Causey Contemporary (92 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY). Her pieces utilize materials often used in contemporary art — ink, hair, nails — but combine them in a way that shimmers and moves like the sun reflecting off a wave.

Louie Cordero

Frequently gaudy but always interesting, Louie Cordero‘s works are now on display at Jonathan Levine Gallery (529 West 20th Street, 9th Floor, New York, NY). Are these imaginary gods and goddesses?

Reckless Spirits (2022) is a metaphysical, multi-lingual POC buddy comedy for a bleak new era, in anticipation of a feature-length project.
