Stay in Love
 curated by Chris Sharp
 
Lisa Cooley Gallery, 107 Norfolk St., NYC
presented in collaboration with Laurel Gitlen, New York

Stay in Love is an exhibition about monomania and manual repetition. Bringing together a heterogeneous group of historical, established and emerging artists, this show elegiacally explores the classical, paradox-laden trope of manual repetition and devotion to a single subject in the 21st century. True to the obsolescent nature of its theme, Stay in Love deliberately limits itself to a manual and analogue processes of repetition. - thru Feb 2

Fitzroy Gallery shows artists including Colby Bird, Sean Dack and Kianja Strobert. In a phone interview, director Maureen Sarro told A.i.A. that the gallery is relocating to 195 Chrystie St., on the Lower East Side. Fitzroy will more than double its exhibition space, to 4,000 square feet over two floors. A show by Gibb Slife, “Thick as a Brick,” opening Sept. 15, will inaugurate the new venue.

Laurel Gitlen is also moving her eponymous gallery and expects to take up residence in her new space at 122 Norfolk St. in October.

Horton Gallery, currently in Chelsea, announced this month that it will expand to a 2,100-square-foot space at 55-59 Chrystie St. on the Lower East Side. Horton will take over the facility from Canada Gallery, which will move to 333 Broome St., perhaps as early as November.

Alex Zachary Peter Currie, which has been operating at 16 East 77th St. since January 2010, has reported it will move. The gallery has received favorable notices for shows including Ken Okiishi and Jordan Wolfson. No new location has been announced.
