Dérives at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, 505 W 24th St., NYC
Dérives, curated by Romain Dauriac, refers to the writings of Guy Debord and the action of drift as much more than chance or a change of direction, but an abstract movement within art. Worth catching before it ends in 8 days!

Josef Koudelka at Pace Gallery, 508 W 25th St., NYC
In the age of panoramic cell phone photos, Josef Koudelka is a true artist and master of panoramic photography. His huge, black and white landscapes play with deep shadows and contrasting texture. It’s a chance pause and reflect within the chilling splendor of desolation. Ends February 14.
