2020: A Year in New York Exhibitions and More

From exhibitions to online projects, here’s a rundown of work that has sparked joy, challenged, moved, or otherwise stuck with me through this hell of a year.

During a year when death has loomed larger than usual, Kenny Rivero’s compact but exquisite presentation at Charles Moffett accomplished the rare feat of reckoning with mortality in a manner that was both moving and cathartically humorous. Honing in specifically on the ever-present threats faced by communities of color, I Still Hoop nodded to the ladders, liminal spaces, and magical elements of a specifically Caribbean diasporic mundane in a manner that resonated precisely.
