Geometric Properties, Chelsea

Creative organisation Artechouse’s New York space is hosting Geometric Properties: An Immersive Audio-Visual Journey Through Fractal Dimensions until 6 September 2021. The walk-through installation features projections by award-winning Dutch visual artist Julius Horsthius. Combining art, science and technology, it sees infinite geometric patterns of fractal worlds projected onto the walls of this vast gallery-like space inside the famous Chelsea Market.

Angelika Film Center, Soho

Housed in the Cable Building (once home to Monocle’s New York bureau) where Soho meets Noho, Angelika Film Center is a relic from an era when mega cineplexes were nowhere to be found. On the corner of West Houston and Mercer Streets, the picturehouse is held in high regard by discerning filmgoers and regularly tops lists of the world’s most beautiful cinemas. Village East Cinema – another theatre owned by the same group – is a moorish revival movie palace built in the 1920s, complete with a gilded dome and ornate plasterwork covering the ceiling. Grab some popcorn and settle back to enjoy a screening of Minari, Nomadland or any of this season’s hot new releases.

‘David Hockney: Drawing from Life’, Manhattan 

In 1902, US financier John Pierpont Morgan commissioned architect Charles F McKim to design an Italian Renaissance-style palazzo in which to house his vast collection of art, books and other historic documents. Today the Morgan Library and Museum hosts an impressive array of exhibitions in its Renzo Piano-designed extension. Running until May 2021 is a retrospective of David Hockney’s works on paper, tracking the British artist’s career through some 100 of his portraits.
