With an ever-growing number of galleries scattered around New York, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Where to begin? Here at A.i.A., we are always on the hunt for thought-provoking, clever and memorable shows that stand out in a crowded field. Below is a selection of current shows our team of editors can't stop talking about.

 

David Humphrey at Fredericks & Freiser, through Jan. 19 
David Humphrey's new paintings represent something of a breakthrough for the New York artist. His colorful, Pop-art-related figurative compositions are here tempered by an unexpected painterly aplomb that winks at gestural abstraction. Yet the best of his wacky compositions on view, such as Cement Truck and At the Door, maintain a delicate and impressive balance between abstract and figurative elements.
