Went to Chelsea two times last week to take in as many fall shows as my brain could handle. After a pretty bleak Chelsea summer (with many galleries just closing their doors completely for most of it) I was rather pleased with the work on offer this fall.

I think my favorite exhibition was Laurent Grasso‘s Soleil Double installation at Sean Kelly Gallery. The video pieces were particularly mesmerizing (especially the video on the lower level of the fantastically lit Roman plaza). Sean Kelly Gallery consistently shows great work, it has become one of my favorite galleries over the past couple of years. The LG show runs through October 18, 2014 (next weekend!)

Another favorite was the Stephen Shore show at 303 Gallery.
The gallery is showing a selection of Stephen’s images from Ukraine and Israel. Exhibition runs until November 1st. More information here.
