Crosstown Traffic, a new large-scale mosaic by Christopher Wool, is now permanently installed in the lobby of Two Manhattan West across from Moynihan Station in New York City. The mosaic, at 28 by 39 feet, is the artist's first in the medium and his largest artwork to date. Wool’s work is presented alongside a new stainless-steel sculpture by artist Charles Ray, both of which were commissioned by Brookfield Properties.

See Stop Run, a survey of Christopher Wool’s works from the past decade organised by the artist with curator Anne Pontégnie, opens in March 2024. The exhibition takes place on the entire 19th floor of an unoccupied space in the heart of the financial district. Wool has chosen an independent venue in order to escape the presumed neutrality of the 'white cube' as an idealised context. The city permeates the presentation through windows that wrap around the full 18,000 square foot installation.

Situating Wool’s work within a specific context, where the art and its environment interact, the exhibition emphasises the artist’s complex image-making process and the interconnectivity between mediums: painting, sculpture, photography and mosaic. This is Wool’s largest exhibition since 2014 and will run 14 March – 31 July 2024. The show is free and open to the public with hours Thursday – Sunday from 12 – 6 pm. Capacity is limited to 75 persons at a time.

Works by Mark Grotjahn, Albert Oehlen, Adam Pendleton, Rudolf Stingel and Christopher Wool are on view in A Dark Hymn: Highlights from the Hill Collection. Celebrating the five-year anniversary of the Hill Art Foundation, the exhibition examines the collection through the lens of Valentin Bousch’s 16th-century stained-glass window, The Creation and the Expulsion from Paradise, which is permanently installed in the Foundation’s Chelsea building. The exhibition places the Bousch window in conversation with other significant works in the collection, spanning from the Renaissance through to the contemporary moment.
