Landscapes of Extraction - The Arthur A. Houghton Jr. Gallery - The Cooper Union
Through February 26, 2011 -

The debate over our dependence on fossil fuels to provide energy and the subsequent gas missions and planetary warming they create has largely focused on the invisible. Landscapes of Extraction, an exhibition at The Cooper Union featuring the impressive photographic works of J Henry Fair, provides an eye-opening look at the increasingly extreme industrial processes used to extract fossil fuels including mountain top removal, deep sea drilling and hydro-fracking. Known for taking great risks—such as daunting flyovers by plane to gain unique vantage points, Fair’s work depicts the impact of the massive industrial energy sites of the world and the shockingly altered and polluted landscapes and fresh water supplies they manifest. Researched, developed and built by a group of recent graduates working at the Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design, the Architecture Archive staff, and J Henry Fair, the exhibition features analytic graphics and interactive media developed specifically for Landscapes of Extraction. Using media stations, individuals are able to personally connect and correlate how their energy use impacts the planet. The interface provides staggering factual information and engages visitors by: • Illustrating site-specific extraction processes and documenting its effect on the landscape and surrounding environment • Tracking the refinement, transportation and ultimate use of natural resources to generate energy • Highlighting the impact each person can make toward creating a global difference. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a 100 watt light bulb for 20 hours and recycling one plastic bottle will power a computer for 25 minutes Presented by the Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design and The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture. Exhibition on view: January 20 – February 26, 2011 Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday 12-7pm, Saturday 12-5pm Gallery Closed: Sunday; February 18, 19 & 21

It is with great pleasure that Tibet House US presents an exquisite collection of works in The Menris Tradition of Tangka Art: Paintings by the New Generation in Exile, on display for public viewing from January 20th through March 2nd, 2011. The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on January 20th from 6pm-8pm. The exhibition is dedicated to a complex medium unique to Tibetan culture, the Menris tradition of tangka art, which flourished and survived in Tibet for centuries until its interruption by the Chinese Communist invasion in 1950. In 1959, the Venerable Sangye Yeshi fled to India where he sustained the tradition in exile at the personal request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, founding The Institute of Tibetan Tangka Art (ITTA) in Dharamsala to ensure a high standard of training for future generations of Menris painters. Ven. Yeshi passed away in 2009. However this long and rich tradition continues through his students at ITTA, whose works are on display in this incredible exhibition. Included on display are works by Tashi Dhargyal, who helped Ven. Yeshi found the ITTA. In addition to completed tangkas, this exhibition includes a set of unfinished works to illustrate the process of tangka creation. A preview for the exhibit is located at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2-e0eSzp6k.
