"Painter Jayson Musson is finally emerging from the explosion of hype created by his alter-ego/Internet sensation, Hennessy Youngman. 'Halcyon Days' is the first solo show where his paintings take precedence over his humor and critiques of the art world. The works, inspired by Coogi sweaters (of Cliff Huxtable fame), are a visual dialogue between ’90s hip hop fashion and fine abstract painting." — Sara Roffino

** ARTINFO RECOMMENDS ** Yayoi Kusama at the Whitney Museum, 11 AM - 6 PM
945 Madison Avenue, Upper East Side

"This retrospective of the Japanese artist takes care to highlight the more subtle side of her practice, with early paintings, collages, and performance documentation. But that's not to say that it neglects the artist's bombastic spot paintings and sexually charged nude happenings. The show demonstrates the sweep of a diverse career which has most recently produced a series of brightly-colored paintings reminiscent of a looser Keith Haring, on view in the final gallery." Kyle Chayka
