Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Sam Stewart: Cryptid” is on view at Fort Gansevoort in New York through Saturday, April 7. The solo exhibition, the artist’s first, is situated, according to a press release, “on the second floor of a townhouse located at 3 Ninth Avenue, located directly next door to Fort Gansevoort and will be by appointment only. Zoned for residential use, the space is required by the Department of Buildings to include a shower in the bathroom, a sleeping surface, and a working kitchen among other prerequisites for daily living. Reflecting on these codes and their distinctions from commercial space, Stewart has created a series of objects that imagine the personal affects of a mythical occupant.”
