Red Bull Studios New York is hosting We All Love Your Life, the first US solo exhibition of London-based artist George Henry Longly, on view until July 31. The show reconfigures the space into a series of disorienting, obliquely formal and technological references. As viewers traverse the gallery, they encounter a variety of experiences alluding to subjectivity in outer space, to the coexistence of classical and digital orders, to self-help and reality television, to seeing the earth from space. Taking inspiration from A House in Space, a book about NASA’s Skylab space station written by journalist Henry S.F. Cooper Jr. in 1976, Longly sets up a structure where the power relations between ground control and the space station are examined – played out through a narrative that includes a public artwork in space and an onsite performance venue housed within the space station. A tightly cropped film of snakes slipping across a studio desk; a mutated Dionysus, based on a three-dimensional scan of an Elgin Marble; a web camera and a bedroom: all subjects and settings in a spatial reorganization that refers back to the astronauts’ experience aboard Skylab.

For her first exhibition in France, Wu Tsang has transformed Lafayette Anticipations into a hybrid space that summons the worlds of the night and the sacred. Through this metamorphosis, the visitor is immersed in a mysterious atmosphere where recent and earlier works by the American artist are brought together.
