I'm on my way out the door right now, so I don't have time to write anything or even identify the works in these images, but I want to recommend Sterling Ruby's brilliant installations at Foxy Production, where he was first shown in New York, and Metro Pictures, whose comparatively vast spaces house several truly monumental sculptures. Between the two galleries there is work in virtually every medium, including sculpture, video, painting, print, ceramic, photography and collage, much of it of these elements compounded.

Ruby's a master in each of them. These shows may be my favorites for the year.
