The elegance of chance is on display at New York gallery ZONE: CONTEMPORARY ART, featuring variants on the Surrealist game of exquisite corpse as well as other works created by Jackie Matisse, Sol LeWitt, John Cage and Joseph Beuys. Potentially destructive processes are prominent; one of the Cage pieces was created by pressing glass shards into paper, effectively operating as a meditation on the resultant image as the record of incremental damage to a once-blank surface, while Pilyun Ahn's intricate chocolate sculptures both run the risk of melting and challenge viewers hungry for a snack.

(At ZONE through February 20.)
