Case Study: September Exhibitions in New York City


September is always the best time of the year for contemporary art. With the end of summer, families return from vacationing and get back into the swing of school and work. Participating in cultural programming returns to prominence and, with winter and the headaches of preparing for the holidays still a few months away, those interested in collecting art swarm gallery districts. Exploiting their patrons’ fresh return, art dealers push forward their key exhibitions for the year. Coveted September exhibition slots are offered to the most valued gallery artists, in a signal to the market that these are the most exciting artists to watch, the thoroughbred race-horses competing for the triple crown of sales, critical review and buzz.

Though by no means an exhaustive list of the many amazing shows currently on display this month, The Ministry of Artistic Affairs shares the following selections from the many fantastic exhibitions we saw last week in New York City. All of the galleries are listed below with live links to their online version but if you have time to drop some NYC in the next few weeks, we highly recommend hitting each of these shows in person:
