10 Museum Shows to See in New York This Week

May is undoubtedly a market-oriented art month in New York, with Frieze quickly followed by another fair, Independent, and then a succession of big-ticket auctions to boot. But even as moneyed dealers and collectors flex their might, the city’s museums have plowed forward, mounting some of their most high-profile shows planned for this year.

The polarizing Whitney Biennial continues its run at the Whitney Museum; the debate over its curatorial framework is sure to be a mainstay at gallery dinners and fair booths this month. Meanwhile, sizable exhibitions devoted to the Harlem Renaissance and Joan Jonas, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, respectively, will also be widely seen.
