This month, beat the New York humidity with a trip to some of the summer’s most anticipated exhibitions (all of which are delightfully temperature controlled). From retrospectives devoted to Shahzia Sikander, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Wardell Milan, to a tribute to the legendary (but little documented) Sapphire Show, there’s plenty to see.
Keep the (HEPA-filtered) air flowing.
