From the main fair to Chelsea galleries and New York art museums, Trevor covered a lot of ground in three days to come up with his Top Ten list of contemporary art that caught his eye, a kind of snapshot of New York in March.

Bordering on obsession

By Wendy
When we find a contemporary artist whose work we love, it’s pretty exciting.  We want to get to know the artist’s history and try to see everything they’re making now. Here in New York during Armory week, it’s like looking for faces of friends in a huge crowd.

Artists find inspiration, sometimes, in other artists. So before heading to the Armory Show in New York yesterday, Barkley L. Hendricks and his wife, Susan, visited the Frick Collection to see “Rembrandt and his School: Masterworks from the Frick and Lugt Collections.”

A painter of fiction

In and out of the Armory show, here in New York, we are busy seeking out artists important to the Nasher Museum.
Their work stands out in what is otherwise an overwhelming week of art.
At the Studio Museum in Harlem, we took in Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s solo exhibition, “Any Number of Preoccupations.” The London-based artist’s lush portrait, above, is part of the Nasher Museum’s upcoming show, “Building the Contemporary Collection: Five Years of Acquisitions.”

Glenn Ligon: spelling it out

The words “negro sunshine” will stretch 22 feet across the front of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, starting March 10.
A smaller version, about five feet wide, will be spelled out in backlit, black-painted neon letters in a gallery at the Nasher Museum, in an exhibition opening March 10. A week later, another edition of this work of art, made by New York artist Glenn Ligon, will be on view at the North Carolina Museum of Art. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.

“The Record” inspires Dario Robleto

How do your family’s music choices, made before you were born, set the tone for the rest of your life? And how is this sensibility handed down, perhaps subconsciously, through each succeeding generation? The cross-generational, and maybe even subliminal, influence of music is one of the main ideas behind “Dario Robleto: The Minor Chords Are Ours,” a solo exhibition opening Saturday at D’Amelio Terras Gallery in New York.

Marclay: From Telephones to Clocks

Christian Marclay’s 24-hour time-specific video collage “The Clock” has caused a sensation at Paula Cooper Gallery in its month-long installation at the Chelsea Gallery. Although the video is in its final days, the Nasher will be showing one of Marclay’s earlier video collages, “Telephones” (1995) in its new show Building the Contemporary Collection: Five Years of Acquisitions, opening March 10.

Paparazzi (not): “The Record”

The photo album of our famous visitors to “The Record” may seem pretty impressive. Even more exciting: the wonderful conversations and ideas they brought, and the notion that they went back out into the world and told lots of people about the Nasher Museum and “The Record.”
