There’s something about September in New York that makes the City shine. Case in point, the art scene that, like Wall Street, hits the ground running. It’s not just museums that are creating the buzz, but also all the gallery openings. Here are six exhibits to put on the list to kick off the fall with some culture.

The artworks presented reflect to that time in South Korea, exemplifying the experimental art being made.
