John Armleder

at Nahmad Contemporary,
980 Madison Ave

This compact survey is a striking overview of the brash and brilliant works that Swiss artist John Armleder has produced since the early 1990s. Many of the pieces hang against Slant, a reinstallation of Armleder's 1967 muras, featuring a colorful monochrome rectangle that stretches from the bottom left corner to the upper right corner of each of the gallery's six walls. His shiny guitar sculptures and mirrored panels, combined with a selection of his large and glittery poured and puddle paintings, make for a rather dizzying display.
