1. Vuk Vidor
At Cueto Project through October 2
In the comix-driven tradition of Pop great Roy Lichtenstein, Vidor pictures Batman, Captain America, and other animated archetypes—though instead of saving the world, Vidor’s characters face impending doom.
At ChinaSquare through October 27
Pop meets the terra-cotta army: Contemporary Chinese sculptor Guangci riffs on his country’s former dictator (and one of Andy Warhol’s favorite subjects), constructing life-size fleets of painted-fiberglass and stainless-steel Maos.
