Big eyes

After a scan of some dealer galleries, a best-of show in LA and too much time on Google, here’s some of what to expect from art in the next 12 months.
  • Plants in pots, in arrangements and in fragments
  • Large mirrors and reflective surfaces
  • Installations in stand-alone rooms
  • Tiles and more tiles, on the floor, on the wall and on the ceiling
  • Performances (many of them based on work by Yvonne Rainer)
  • Collectives and groups
  • Ceramics, ceramics and more ceramics
  • Rumbling bass sound tracks
  • Small abstract paintings that remind you of other paintings you've seen
  • Artist statements printed onto the gallery wall
  • Things made of bronze that look like they are made of something else
  • Artists writing printed in handouts
  • Artists curating other artists as their own work of art
