John Currin is back, with more eroticism and perplexing imagery than ever! While the layering of painting on top of painting characterizes his newer works, the same thematic exploration of balance between the beautiful and the monstrous remains.

Allen, a high school drop out and teenage runaway, is having his first solo exhibition since his success at the 2014 Whitney Biennial. His sculpture is a paradox of solid form, but fluid shape, creating a complex balance between the two. Ends February 28.

The exhibition features sound and printed art that examines repurposing and the value of the unintentional. Through both sound and imagery, Fowler ignores the uniform purpose of mass production, by tweaking common sound and embroidery instruments to create a unique print or noise. Opens February 21.

In his debut Los Angeles show, Whitney’s works are a study in color and grid patterns. The orderly structure dictated by the bold colors are combined with the spontaneity of the drip to exude an interesting combination of mixed textures and complex layering. Ends February 22.
