1. “Öyvind Fahlström” at Venus Over Manhattan

There hasn’t been a solo show of Swedish multimedia artist Öyvind Fahlström’s (1928–1976) work in New York in over 15 years. Venus Over Manhattan rectifies that with a presentation featuring the artist’s colorful text-filled prints inspired by newspaper columns, his pictogram-heavy “Sitting…” paintings, and a restoration of the 1966 16 mm black-and-white film Mao-Hope March.

Location: Venus Over Manhattan, 980 Madison
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
