Stephen Posen, “Threads: Paintings From the 1960s and ’70s”
Opening: 6–8 p.m., Vito Schnabel Projects, 43 Clarkson Street, 1A
What you should know:
It’s the first New York solo in five years for an artist who counts among his fellow 1964 Yale MFAs Chuck Close, Nancy Graves, and Richard Serra, but who never found the same household-name status, though his works reside in museums including MoMA and the Guggenheim. In his heyday in the ’70s, he received critical plaudits, was shown by Leo Castelli apostle and doula of Pop Art Ivan Karp at his OK Harris Gallery, and was featured at the Whitney and in Documenta.
