Perched on the slope of Ohayo Mountain in Woodstock, NY, Clarence Schmidt’s “House of Mirrors” once existed. Outside: a titanic architectural mashup resembling many residences stacked and clumped together, seven stories tall and drawn-out in all other directions. Inside: roughly 35 alcoves and caverns housing endless wonders, interlocked in a circuitous system of corridors, galleries, and staircases. Now a place of legend, the House of Mirrors is accessible only through the documentation of a number of chroniclers, photographers, and filmmakers, as well as through the few pieces of sculpture that survived its doom. “Let’s Call it Hope” presents a selection of such works, inviting viewers to conjure the mood and mystery of Schmidt’s remarkable creation and to consider the relevance of the artist’s oeuvre in the wider landscape of modern art.

"Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams", a retrospective of the inventive, enchanting fantasy-architecture creations of the Congolese artist who died in 2015, is showing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, through January 1, 2019. The show features dozens of the artist's dazzling "extreme maquettes" of futuristic, imaginary buildings and cities, which he crafted using cardboard, soft-drink cans, printed packaging paper, and other found materials.

Although seen from a Roma, Gypsy, Traveller perspective, the ongoing project "Safe European Home?" which Damian and Delaine le Bas have been showing throughout Europe since 2011, encompasses their broader protest against the phantom of fascism they believe to be stalking the continent. First shown outside the parliament building in Vienna in 2011, the project returns to the artists’ hometown. Paying tribute to Damian who passed away in December, the exhibition features archive material alongside new works by Alex Michon and a photographic installation by Julia Horbaschk.

The circle drawings of Japanese self-taught artist Hiroyuki Doi are shown in "Now and the Past" at Repi Doll, Takeshitadori, Tokyo.

A chef-turned-artist, Hiroyuki Doi always dreamed of being an artist and taught himself to drawn and paint since he was a little boy. In his art, Doi alludes to such subjects as the soul, the transmigration of the soul, the cosmos, human dialog, the co-existence of living creatures and universal peace. He does so by creating images that consist of many small circles made with black-ink drawing pens on washi. He continues to create his unique circle drawings every day.
