Judy Pfaff has three shows in New York, LaToya Ruby Frazier talks about her new book, Carrie Mae Weems heads to Carnegie Hall, and more in this week’s roundup.

  • Judy Pfaff has three exhibitions in New York: Second Nature at Pavel Zoubok Gallery and Run Amok at Loretta Howard Gallery, both in Manhattan, and an untitled show upstate at Garrison Art Center, where the Pfaff’s “objects collide on paper…like a steamrolled version of [her] installations—a sort of reverse bang.” For closing dates, visit the gallery websites.
  • Drawings and hanging sculptures by the late Louise Bourgeois will soon be on view in the solo exhibition Suspension at Cheim & Read (New York, NY). As the title suggests, the show “traces the theme of suspension throughout Bourgeois’s long career.” Works on view include Hanging Janus (1968) and Arch of Hysteria (1993). A complete exhibition checklist is available online. Suspension opens October 30.
  • In a new suite of video recordings from Frieze London, William Kentridge discusses his artwork and art historical influences with Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen, Head of the Courtauld Gallery (London, UK). Watch the videos at Artnet.com.
  • LaToya Ruby Frazier has a new book out called The Notion of Family (Aperture, 2014). “It’s not just a photo book or art book,” the artist said during a talk at Aperture. “It’s a history book. This is a historical document, and it has to reach father than the art scene and the photo scene.” In addition to Frazier’s photographs, The Notion of Family features essays by Laura Wexler and Dennis C. Dickerson, and a conversation between Frazier and fellow photographer Dawoud Bey.
  • Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino are the honorees at this year’s Art + Film Gala organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The star-studded event—presented by Gucci and co-chaired by LACMA trustee Eva Chow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio—will be held on November 1.
  • Carrie Mae Weems is one of six artists that will be honored at the twelfth annual Lucie Awards, which annually recognizes “the greatest achievements in photography.” Martin Parr and Nan Goldin are also recipients of this year’s awards. The gala ceremony will be held on November 2 at Carnegie Hall (New York, NY).
