Memento Mori

In Chelsea, things grow darker well before daylight saving time ends.

  1. 1. “I Am As You Will Be”

    At Cheim & Read; through November 3

    Death as only this bunch could do it. The show’s A-list roster features Matthew Barney, Marcel Broodthaers, Salvador Dalí, Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alice Neel, and Pablo Picasso. Look for Neel’s ghoulish self-portrait and Basquiat’s angsty skull scribbles.

  2. 2. “Death & Love in Modern Times”

    At Dinter; through October 27

    Warhol anchors a crop of relatively lesser-known artists (Leon Golub, Peter Hujar, and Ana Mendieta among them) tackling the skull as symbol and motif.
