Photo or it didn’t happen. Last week’s Instagram posts of the art world are reminders of where the hottest shows in New York are at and which are closing soon. Here are a few standout shots from last week that show how getting that perfect ‘gram can be just as satisfying as seeing a favorite work. Soak up the creative wonder and become inspired to take your Insta game to the next level!


1. Manus x MachinaThe Met‘s most Instagrammable show this summer, lends itself to trippy pics, like this one captured by @dokino. If you haven’t had a chance to catch the show yet, fear not, as its end date has been extended through September 5.




2. Where’s the art handler? @youngsunart provided a behind-the-scenes look at an art handler sporting a similarly printed shirt as this Raymond Pettibon painting, on view at David Zwirner Gallery.




3. @chrissyscolaro posted this beautiful Richard Mosse photograph, created with the help of Aerochrome film, originally used in aerial vegetation surveys and military reconnaissance. Go see the stunning work in person at the Jack Shainman Gallery.




4. @haneyroasted captured this cheeky shot at the Whitney this past weekend.




5. Because sometimes Willow is the best filter to use. @sophiina captured this sweet aerial shot at the Brooklyn Museum this Sunday.



At your next museum or gallery visit, make sure to tag your pics with #artzealous, and we just might feature your image on our site.
