This one is definitely worth checking out: the gathering of abstract art from the 1950s that’s currently on view at the Guggenheim. The museum has dug into its collection to showcase some of the big (mostly male) names of the era (Pollock, de Kooning, Kline, etc.) But it also contains some awesome/weird surprises — including a massive canvas by Newark-born Carmen Cicero, some excellent canvas collages by Conrad Marca-Relli, and some highly intriguing burlap and metal pieces by Alberto Burri. (Somebody please do a retrospective!)
Art of Another Kind: International Abstraction is on view through September 12 at the Guggenheim Museum.
