City Spotlights

The German dealer’s West 20th Street Chelsea headquarters is one of the top places in the world to see blue-chip contemporary art. Hit up its two locations on West 19th Street, too. Shows devoted to Franz West and Richard Serra wrap up on December 13 and 20, respectively.

Cheim & Read
