Frank Ockenfels 3: Introspection through Mar 9, 2024. Frank Ockenfels 3 has been widely applauded throughout his career for his playful style and experimental technique. He is best known for his psychologically revealing portraits of famed figures such as George Clooney, Nirvana, and David Bowie; his campaigns for brands including Converse, and Nike; and his work as a director of music videos and commercials. His art often has a dreamlike quality, with a sometimes dark, suggestive undertone that nevertheless carries a certain elegance. After more than 30 years, Ockenfels is still on a journey of constant experimentation.

Human / Nature: Encountering Ourselves in the Natural World
through May 18, 2024. This show explores our faceted relationship with the natural
world, including moments of harmony and recovery, as well as our tendency towards destruction. Prepare to be shepherded through scenes by 14 artists reflecting on the impact of urbanization and climate change on worldwide ecosystems.

Futuristic Ancestry: Warping Matter and Space-time(s)
through May 24, 2024. Fotografiska New York is proud to present rising-star French artist Josèfa Ntjam’s solo U.S. museum show debut. Through a multi-sensory video experience, biomorphic sculptures and photomontages printed on plexiglass and aluminum,
the exhibition explores the artist’s deep interest and research into African mythology, biological processes, science fiction, and the ingrained but outdated ideas about origin, identity and race that rule our world.
Throughout her work, Ntjam blends memory with historical fact and speculative fiction
(from Battlestar Galactica to the novels of Octavia E. Butler) to produce new interpretations of radical liberation movements around the world, from the battle against white supremacy led by the Black Panther Party in the U.S., to the fights in Cameroon
and Nigeria against colonial rule.
