    Charlotte Meyer lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., graduated from Pratt Institute in 2009, and received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award in recognition of the school. She is a Visiting Critic at R.I.S.D. is represented by Opus Projects, and is scheduled to exhibit new work at the Chelsea location in 2014. Here are her favorite shows of this past year: 

    1. Robert Irwin: Scrim Veil -Black Rectangle -Natural Light at Whitney Museum, New York
    A reminder of Irwin’s dedication to understanding perceptual awareness of space by transforming the fourth floor of the Whitney with an intricate but barely there work, recreated after 35 years.

    2. Ad Reinhardt at David Zwirner, New York
    The black paintings fill one room with subtle details which reveal themselves with each moment you spend, smart political graphic illustrations provide a layer mostly unknown, obsessive photography slides in the hundreds.

    3. Jill Magid: Woman with Sombrero at Art in General, New York
    The investigative nature of Magid’s work paired with the skilled manifestation of sharing just enough information seduces every time.

    4. Subliming Vessel: The Drawings of Matthew Barney at Morgan Library, New York
    Intense research, developed language, constant movement, revealing process, considered materials.

    5. Dickinson/Walser: Pencil Sketches at Drawing Center, New York
    Old fashioned writing thoughts down on beautiful scraps of paper.
