ArtnewsOpening: “Remains” at Fergus McCaffrey This group exhibition consists almost entirely of live performances. Taking its cues from the Gutai movement, the Japanese avant-garde from the 1950s that imploded the boundary between everyday life and art, “Remains” features artists who rely on performance as “a way of effecting change both materially and conceptually,” a news release notes. Artists in show include Hee Ran Lee, who will perform 50 Bulbs, a piece in which viewers hold a light bulb hanging from the ceiling and are instructed to throw it at the artist, Máiréad Delaney, Daniel Neumann, Clifford Owens, Nigel Rolfe, and Liping Ting. Fergus McCaffrey, 514 West 26th Street, 6–8 p.m. Read More
