Four-midable tribute

Gallery-hoppers out in Tribeca this week will be struck by a neon-hued addition to Barnett Newman Triangle, the traffic wedge at the intersection of Church and White streets, which Newman’s studio overlooked. Sculptor Mark Handforth’s new work at the site, Franklin Street Four (2023), is a tall metal cylinder twisted to form the number four. It is finished in bright pink, an allusion to the hue of Dan Flavin’s 1971 portrait of Newman in fluorescent lights (now in SFMoMA’s permanent collection). Handforth’s tribute is on view until November; his solo show across the street at Luhring Augustine continues until 28 July.
