Through September 24, 2017 - New York

The beloved Feast of San Gennaro, which is celebrating its 91st anniversary this year, is an annual festival presented by Figli di San Gennaro (Children of San Gennaro), a not-for-profit community organization dedicated to keeping the spirit and faith of the early Italian immigrants alive. The Feast is New York City's largest and longest running festivals, and attracts more than one-million people from around the world each year, to take part in the religious processions, colorful parades, free musical entertainment, and a wide variety of authentic Italian cuisine.

ICP Projected: Formless - ICP Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

With mainstream media often perpetuating one-dimensional viewpoints of African fashion and culture, these industries have developed a renaissance among young people in West Africa who want to create their own standards and representations. Formless is a fashion editorial series by Amarachi Nwosu and developed with stylist Daniel Obasi in Lagos, Nigeria for Contributor Magazine. Although traditional beliefs often reproduce gender roles and norms that force men and women into their own boxes, these images express an alternate reality where men and women are no longer divided by unrealistic expectations of gender and social constructs, but are connected by what is at their core as human beings. The project infuses "masculine" and "feminine" attributes in both the male and female subjects using pieces made exclusively by African designers, including Orange Culture, Iamisigo, and Gozel Green.

Arcade Fire - New York City Theatre
September 12, 2017 - New York

Their 2004 debut Funeral announced Arcade Fire as one of the generation's most exciting rock groups and their reputation has only continued to grow. Each subsequent album has found them breaking new ground artistically while maintaining a tremendous commercial appeal (they have more than a few Grammys under their belt). 2017 sees them touring in support of Everything Now, an ambitiously realised album which carries on the laid-back disco influence from Reflektor. Arcade Fire are having a blast, and while they may take their music making deadly seriously, their live shows are never less than spectacular. Expect mirror balls and glitter aplenty - like Bowie or U2 before them, Arcade Fire wear their rock 'n' roll crown with aplomb.

There are writers in literary history who not only leave their mark through their extraordinary story-telling but also through their extraordinary lives. Karen Blixen was one such figure.

No One Is an Island - The Museum of Modern Art
Through September 14, 2017 - Manhattan

Even when Robert Rauschenberg lived on an island in Florida, the majority of his art was still made in close dialogue and collaboration with friends and lovers. Ideas and artistic processes flowed freely and generously, often blurring the boundaries of authorship. This session will focus on work Rauschenberg made with artists, dancers, musicians, and writers—and in the spirit of that collaboration we'll experiment with a group art-making activity. No artistic skill is required. This session is led by Kerry Downey. Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

EXHIBITION: HOME + DISCORDANCE = US - Glucksman Ireland House NYU
September 15, 2017 - New York

Solas Nua, in collaboration with the NYU Brademas Center and NYU Washington, DC is pleased to present Home + Discordance = US, an exhibition that explores the idea of the US as a place of "home". Typically the word home conjures up an image of warmth, welcome and a place of safety. However, for some that image does not fully hold true; some are less welcome than others, some are less equal and some are less safe. The exploration of the Irish immigrant experience of defending home, leaving home and making new homes is one frequently addressed in Solas Nua's programming. This experience is not singular to the Irish but is universal and one that is shared by all communities in the US be they immigrant or indigenous. This exhibition and series has been made possible by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, Glucksman Ireland House of New York University, and the Embassy of Ireland.

Scorpions and Megadeth - New York City Theatre
September 16, 2017 - New York

German grand wizards of metal Scorpions are joining forces with thrash metal titans Megadeth for a scorching tour that'll shake the very foundations of the arenas they'll be filling. The Crazy World Tour references Scorpions' 1990 album, which was released at the end of the Cold War - the band couldn't be dusting off their axes and political anthems at a better time. It's time to stand together and rock! Riding the first tidal wave of 70s heavy metal, Scorpions marked themselves as a force to be reckoned with with the release of the ever popular classic Rock You Like A Hurricane, selling 22 million records to date. A decade after their inception, Megadeth took up the metal call, and both bands have remained classic rock stalwarts with sold out world tours and consistent album releases over the decades.

Originally opening Off-Broadway in 1999, Naked Boys has now been housed at four different New York venues over the years, and is now firmly established as a true Off-Broadway fixture.

Fred Hersch, Kurt Elling & Kate McGarry: Leaves of Grass - The Appel Room
Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Composer and pianist Fred Hersch has been described by the New York Times as "a master who plays it his way." Over the course of Hersch's long and inspiring career, Leaves of Grass stands out as one of his most ambitious and deeply personal projects. Originally premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2005, Leaves of Grass celebrates the life and poetry of the American bard Walt Whitman, whose work redefined American poetry and had a significant, life-affirming impact on Hersch. In this Appel Room performance, vocalists Kurt Elling and Kate McGarry will reprise their acclaimed roles from the original project, presenting Whitman's words with grace, emotion, and a lyrical sweetness that would have made Whitman proud. An eight-piece ensemble will assist them in evoking the sweeping melodicism for which Hersch is renowned. It's been over 160 years since Whitman wrote his epic masterwork, "Song of Myself," which forms the centerpiece of Hersch's Leaves of Grass, and its messages seemed almost alien in our society at the time. Now, its promotion of unapologetic love for one's true self, appreciation of the present, wonder at the miracle of nature, and the openhearted love of all beings is especiall... (read more)

Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 - 1972 In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater.

Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D.

The story is based on actor Chazz Palminteri's one man show, which De Niro previously adapted for the big screen in 1993. WHAT IS A BRONX TALE ABOUT? Growing up in the Bronx, Calogero knows that there's one man who rules over the bustling Italian-American neighbourhood - mob boss Sonny. Their two paths meet unexpectedly one day, when Calogero witnesses Sonny carrying out a hit. Italian loyalty and a sense of self-preservation mean Calogero refuses to name names to the cops, and Sonny, impressed with the young kid's spirit, takes him under his wing. As Calogero grows older, and heads ever deeper into Sonny's undeworld, his father must try and wrestle him away from a life of crime.

This new production, which mixes songs from the movie with brand new songs by the iconic composer and lyricist Glenn Slater, is a rockin' spectacular!

Phantom of the Opera - Majestic Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York,

With the distance of more than a decade - and a couple hundred new musicals - since my last visit, I found myself with a new appreciation for this beloved show's gothic theatricality. Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera is the stuff of Broadway legend. The Great White Way's longest-running show of all time, this Gothic epic has been enchanting New York audiences for over a quarter a century with its irresistible mix of romance and horror, backed by its iconic rock music score. Undoubtedly one of theatre's greatest spectacles, Phantom boasts exquisite costumes and set design, and of course, the magnificent chandelier that crashes onto the stage to close out the first Act. Originally opening on Broadway in 1988, the show won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has over the years starred some of musical theatres greatest names, such as Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman and Sierra Boggess. Among the many famous numbers in its score is the title track, 'All I Ask of You' and 'The Music of the Night'. For a night out at the theatre, you can't do better than the Phantom."

Cats - Neil Simon Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Book of Mormon - Eugene O'Neill Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

In 2011, following a storming reception at its Denver premiere, the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, gifted the world with this outrageously funny Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon missionaries sent on to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Replete with 19 original, hilarious songs and plenty of eyebrow-raising lines (and peppered with more than a handful of expletives), The Book of Mormon isn't for the faint-hearted or easily offended, but has already won over a whole new generation of musical theatre fans. Just perhaps leave your pastor behind for this one.... The Book of Mormon has had awards heaped upon it, earning 13 Tony nominations in 2012 and going to win nine of them including Best New Musical.

1984 - Hudson Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Even for audiences inclined to feel jaded about revisiting a story from a long-ago school reading list, this '1984' manages to pump new, discomforting life into the mother of all dystopias." George Orwell's scarily prescient masterpiece comes to Broadway, in a new stage adaptation by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. Creating a nightmarish vision of suppression, surveillance and the all-powerful 'Big Brother', 1984 is one of the landmark texts of the 20th Century. Its story centers on civil servant Winston Smith, who decides to fight back against a totalitarian government which seeks to strip away every one of his liberties. Tony nominee Tom Sturridge (Orphan) stars as Winston, and the cast also includes Tony winner Reed Birney (The Humans) and Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde, who is making her Broadway debut. Transferring from the UK, where it has had four acclaimed runs, this new 1984 is a startlingly staged production, employing projections of live video feeds from cameras on stage and a set that is wholly transformed over the run time. It also incorporates the book's appendix into the show, meaning the action is framed by a book club in 2050, who are discussing the veracit... (read more)

Chicago - the Musical - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

An intoxicating mix of murder, sex and razzle dazzle, Chicago is Broadway at its most iconic. A winking satire of celebrity culture, it's the tale of two beautiful criminals in the Roaring Twenties who plan to get away with murder by putting on one hell of a show. Known for its slinky Bob Fosse choreography, lacey costumes and finger-clicking score, Chicago will show you a good time.

It's Broadway's longest-running ever American musical, and was turned into an Oscar winning movie in 2002, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere.

The Suitcase Under the Bed - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Teresa Deevy is a name that should be synonymous with the great Irish literary tradition. After she lost her hearing as a young woman, the dramatist turned to the pen, producing plays that were quietly revolutionary in their forward thinking approach to feminism and women's roles in her restrictive Catholic society. Yet after her initial success in the 30s, her plays were inexplicably dropped by her patron theater, and so her rightful legacy faded over the years. Labelled by NY Times theater critic Brent Brantley as a resurrectionist extraordinaire of forgotten plays", the Mint Theater, together with artistic director and driving force Jonathan Bank, is resurrecting Deevy's lost voice in an evening of four of her short plays this Summer.

Newsical the Musical - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Not to be confused with the Disney musical NEWSIES, this Drama Desk-nominated revue NEWSical is back lampooning current events, newsmakers, celebreties, and politicians - in short, everyone is fair game. With songs and material continually updated to take advantage of the top news stories, composer-lyricist Drama Desk Nominee Rick Crom's topical musical comedy is an ever-evolving mockery of all the news that is fit to spoof - and then some.

Following the turbulent changes faced a moneyed Yorkshire family, this new Roundabout Theatre production examines destiny, fortune and hope for the future.

Late Antique Textiles and Modern Design - The Met
Through October 01, 2017 - New York

Artists and designers often look to the past to find inspiration for their own work. This exhibition—drawn entirely from The Met collection—compares foliate patterns and roundels that are found on textiles from the Late Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods in Egypt to similar motifs in postcards by the Wiener Werkstätte and on garments designed by Mariano Fortuny (1871–1949). Created in Egypt between about 200 and 600, the textiles on view include a child's dress; fragments from a sleeve, tunic, and blanket or cover; and other fragments whose original use is not known. Variations of the scrolling vines and stylized motifs that adorn these textiles can be seen on works created nearly 1500 years later. The renowned Spanish-born designer Mariano Fortuny was active in Venice, where he founded a textile workshop and commercial silk printing factory. His exquisite designs fuse the ancient and the modern, the local and the exotic. Three different Fortuny-designed silk coats from the first three decades of the 20th century are shown over the course of the exhibition. In cut and ornament, these items harken back to Late Antique historical sources. Founded in 1903 in reaction... (read more)

Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a subst... (read more)

Eloise at the Museum - New-York Historical Society
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This summer, the New-York Historical Society celebrates the feisty charm and audacious spirit of Eloise, who continues to be a picture book superstar more than sixty years after her debut. On view June 30 - October 9, 2017, Eloise at the Museum reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909-1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls. Organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, where it debuted earlier this year, New-York Historical's presentation fully immerses visitors into Eloise's world with evocations of the grand lobby of the Plaza Hotel, her bedroom?complete with a storytelling corner?and her bubbly "bawthroom," where she often made mischief.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - Lincoln Center
Through October 14, 2017 - New York

ilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, inc... (read more)

- ICP Museum
Through November 19, 2017 - New York

How has the act of remembering—and forgetting—been transformed in the digital age? Photography's relationship with the concept of memory stretches its entire history and includes its every iteration. Only now has the distribution of photography exploded with newfound ubiquity, ushering in a paradigm shift that bears semblance to that of the Gutenberg press. Photography's various forms have converged onto a point of accessibility where what was once a luxury is now a presupposition. As the degrees of separation between people decrease, so do those between past, present, and future. To remember is to engage with all three, and to create is to make them tangible. The collective consciousness of humankind speaks a visual language, and photography is poised, now more than ever, to upend the very notion of what it means to create.

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson - Grey Art Gallery, NYU
Through December 09, 2017 - New York

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson explores how Alfred Barr, the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) first director, and Philip Johnson, the curator of architecture, introduced modern design to North America. The exhibition’s story begins when Barr and Johnson traveled to Europe in the late 1920s and early 1930s and discovered that leading European architects—such as Le Corbusier, J. J. P. Oud, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe–were rejecting ornament in favor of a purity of form. Barr and Johnson dubbed this new architectural language “International Style.” Featuring more than 100 objects—including furniture, photographs, and industrial and graphic design—the exhibition traces the development of modern design from its origins at Bauhaus to Barr and Johnson’s radical experiments in their homes in New York City to MoMA’s nationally influential exhibition in the 1930s and beyond.

John Minihan: Beckett and His World - Irish Arts Center
Through December 15, 2017 - New York

Walter Asmus directed Waiting for Godot and worked with Samuel Beckett in Berlin in the 1970s, author Edna O'Brien and publisher John Calder made up his circle in London, and actor Lisa Dwan gave life to Not I as never before. These are some of the luminaries who made up a world of Beckett, both during his life, and after his passing. John Minihan captures their essence in black and white portraiture, including his iconic images of Beckett himself. In his artist talk "Beckett and the Wake," John remembers spending time with a playwright who was often a reluctant subject and rarely posed. John Minihan photographed volumes I and II of IAC's cultural exhibition To Love Two Countries, a celebration of the men and women who immigrated to the United States in the early half of the twentieth century. Culture Night is an annual public event in Ireland that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organizations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. This year we join by opening our gallery doors for a daytime opportunity to view Beckett and His World.

Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasure Bindings - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Treasure bindings—book covers encrusted with gold, silver, and gemstones—were a luxury in the Middle Ages. Few survive, and some of the finest examples are in the Morgan's distinguished collection. Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasure Bindings presents these masterpieces in context for the first time. The treasure bindings on view include star sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, pearls, and garnets, alongside illuminated manuscripts and printed books that depict two-dimensional representations of these precious materials. Among the exhibition highlights will be the ninth-century Lindau Gospels, one of the two finest Carolingian jeweled bindings in the world, and the thirteenth-century Berthold Sacramentary, the most luxurious German manuscript of its time. In these and other examples, we learn that the application of gemstones and precious metals served to venerate the texts inside and embellish church services, as well as reflect the status and wealth of the patrons who commissioned them. Images of "imagined" gems are also featured on the pages of manuscripts and printed books presented, including three examples of Venetian books, hand-painted by Girolamo da Cremona. The artis...

War and Pieced: the Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics - American Folk Art Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York, in collaboration with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, University of Lincoln–Nebraska. Cocurated by Dr. Annette Gero, international quilt historian, author, and collector, and Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum. War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Once termed "Soldiers'" or "Convalescent Quilts," the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century. The exhibition further relates these military quilts to an earlier technique of pictorial inlaid or intarsia quilts, made with felted wools during the Prussian and Napoleonic wars beginning in the mid-eighteenth century. The visual virtuosity of the quilts, often incorporating many thousands of pieces no larger than one-inch square, assumes a deeper emotional r... (read more)

Among the exhibition highlights will be the ninth-century Lindau Gospels, one of the two finest Carolingian jeweled bindings in the world, and the thirteenth-century Berthold Sacramentary, the most luxurious German manuscript of its time. In these and other examples, we learn that the application of gemstones and precious metals served to venerate the texts inside and embellish church services, as well as reflect the status and wealth of the patrons who commissioned them. Images of "imagined" gems are also featured on the pages of manuscripts and printed books presented, including three examples of Venetian books, hand-painted by Girolamo da Cremona. The artis...

After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History - Asia Society
Through January 21, 2018 - Upper East Side

After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History considers how contemporary art from societies in transition may be read as an expression of the ambiguous and sometimes contentious relationship between individual artistic practices and sociopolitical context. The exhibition explores the cultural repercussions of political ruptures through sculpture, photography, video, and mixed-media installations by seven contemporary artists and one artist group from three Southeast Asian countries—Indonesia, Myanmar, and Vietnam—whose lives and art practices have intersected with defining historical moments. Featured artists: FX Harsono, Htein Lin, Dinh Q. Lê, Nge Lay, Nguyen Thi Thanh Mai, The Propeller Group, Angki Purbandono, and Tintin Wulia.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

San Marco Quartet - 5 Manhattan West
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

Video Installation by David Rokeby; San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazza. Curated by Pari Nadimi. ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems. In the last deca... (read more)

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
