Nearly one hundred galleries will stay open till 8:00 on July 25, many hosting opening or closing receptions, during the fourth annual Chelsea Art Walk. Over at Lombard Fried Projects, Lucien Samaha’s “The Flight Attendant Years: 1978-1986” details the artist’s longtime relationship with airplanes, first as the son of a father who worked for the airline industry, then as a TWA flight attendant who graduated from the prestigious Breech Training Academy. Marianne Boesky is celebrating summer with “Sunsets and Pussy,” with images of both by Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins, and Piotr Uklanski. At Bryce Wolkowitz, JR follows up his “Inside Out New York City” project with “The Wrinkles of the City, Havana,” a collaboration with José Parlá in which they take photographs of people in Cuba’s capital and put large-scale versions on the sides of buildings. Rachel Hulin will be at ClampArt for the opening of her first New York City solo show, “Flying Henry,” which consists of photos of her six-month-old son seemingly soaring through the air like a child superhero. Julie Saul is currently showing Siberian photographer Nikolay Bakharev’s “Amateurs and Lovers,” a series of black-and-white shots, primarily nudes, taken both inside and outside, providing a unique sense of intimacy.
