Opening Reception for Simon Lee's "MOTHER IS PASSING. COME AT ONCE" at Cristin Tierney Gallery, 546 West 29th Street, 6 – 8 p.m. (Through April 27th)

In something of a change from the artist's typical displays of found photographs, here images will be incorporated into large scale collages, multi-channel video projections (which worked so well in The Visitors by Ragnar Kjartansson at Luhring Augustine), and moving screens which will zip around the gallery space on a custom-built track.

"HEARDNY" at Grand Central Terminal, 87 East 42nd Street, Vanderbilt Hall (Through March 31st)

If you've seen the show's promotions on the subway, you may already have sense of what to expect all next week at Grand Central Station, as the famed "Soundsuit" sculptor will release a herd of 30 colorful, life-sized horses that will "graze" and break into choreographed movements twice daily at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
