Amy Sherald at Hauser & Wirth
One art show I knew I had to see while I was in New York last week was Amy Sherald the heart of the matter at Hauser & Wirth. And it did not disappoint. However beautiful, however luminous, however striking Sherald's people have been when you've seen them in the past, they are even more so when you encounter new ones in person. Normally, when I see a gallery show, I photograph the pieces I really like -- to help me remember them later -- at this show I took pictures of every single painting there, because I really really liked all of them.
