Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the m... (read more)

Over two weeks the artists will produce a magnificent temporary art installation which the public can watch as it’s being crafted. Calligraphy is intrinsically linked to other art practices like poetry and music. As part of this immersive installation, there will be performances and workshops for the public to experience along with the visual installation. The art of connecting letters to meaning, feeling and expression, calligraphy has been an important characteristic of many cultures for eons. Modern calligraphy ranges from lettering to fine art where the artist uses personal interpretation, sometimes rendering the letters unreadable creating abstract shapes or gestural marks. As one artist finishes, the next artist will begin. At the end of the second week, the finished installation will show wi... (read more)

Crossroads of the World - Chashama
Through April 30, 2018 - New York

Laurence Jenkell fashions candy in many forms: paintings, installations and sculptures. Jenkell is a self-taught artist and could not enjoy candies when she was a child, so she decided to make this simple object of desire the main subject of her artwork, with a focus on the twist in a candy's wrapper, and share it with the public worldwide. The creation of her artworks has led Jenkell to use materials like Plexiglass, polyester, aluminum, bronze and marble, but also to express herself through fragmentation. More than a medium, Jenkell's interpretation of the candy has become a language: Her candy sculpture is a radical gesture stemming from the semantic contents of Pop Art and from New Realism.

The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello need a good cover; ours is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

Mahan Esfahani, Harpsichord - Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall
May 01, 2018 - New York

One of the most gifted harpsichordists of our time explores two centuries of music from Italy, France, Germany, and Bohemia in his Carnegie Hall debut. Frescobaldi's wild flights of invention made him one of the most celebrated Italian composers of the 17th century and influenced composers across the continent. A century later, the refined beauty of Rameau's keyboard music represented the pinnacle of the French tradition. Bach drew from all traditions—the Italian and early French styles—to create the finest keyboard music of the Baroque.

May 04, 2018 - New York City

The Paris audience attending the 1923 premiere of Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1 were expecting a work driven by the same furious energy as his ballet scores. Instead, they were surprised by a beautiful concerto with a lyrical quality and a particularly rhapsodic opening solo. The 1805 audience at the first public performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 was stunned when they were presented with this truly revolutionary work. They encountered the most powerful symphony ever written. Beethoven's mighty "Eroica" changed the face of symphonic music and heralded the age of Romanticism.

Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another.

SaveArtSpace: Going Green - Contra Galleries
Through May 04, 2018 - New York

Going Green is a cross-media exhibition that aims to use the public and gallery space as a tool for creating positive disruption and change. In an age of misinformation and the now proverbial and continued unreality of "Fake News," how do we continue to facilitate important intersectional discussions that can engage and expand our horizons of the world around us? Disruptions continue to confront us at every turn: climate change, government mismanagement and obstructionism, systematic disenfranchisement across the cultural spectrum—but for every negative, there is the opportunity to create a positive. By bringing public art, cannabis activism, alternative culinary education, fact-based climate policy, and social justice advocacy together under the banner of Going Green, we can create a conversation that peaks curiosity and extols the virtues of openness and sharing.

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
May 05, 2018 - New York City

Mahler's five-movement Symphony No. 7 has its share of shadows, especially in its two mysterious "night music" movements, but all is not gloom. The massively scored symphony—it includes cowbells, mandolin, and guitar—culminates in a wildly exuberant finale where snippets of operetta, a reference to the opening of Wagner's Die Meistersinger, and a Turkish march joyously swirl together.

Maya Ciarrcchi: Site Sorel - Kinescope Gallery
Through May 18, 2018 - New Yorl

Kinescope.Gallery in collaboration with Fillmore Projects is pleased to announce the opening on Friday, April 20th, of Site: Sorel, the second solo exhibition by New York City based artist Maya Ciarrocchi. The exhibition is comprised of video, prints, 3D models and hand- drafted architectural drawings on the gallery walls. Site: Sorel is a meditation on the real and imaginary spaces left behind by the dead. In this work, Ciarrocchi conjures an image of Barbara Sorel, an author and fixture of the 1990’s lesbian bar scene in New York City. Sorel, as she was called by her friends, sold drugs to support her writing and was tragically murdered in her East Village apartment in 1999. Some of her writing remains and an obituary appeared in the Village Voice following her murder. Apart from this and the memories of friends, she is largely forgotten by history. Combining these memories with Ciarrocchi's own, and by utilizing text from Sorel's self-published book Sorel in Love, the exhibition merges language with image to reveal where the two women's experiences intersect and collide. As part of the exhibition there will be a performance event on Friday, May 11th from 6-8pm, comprise... (read more)

Jade Doskow: 'Lost Utopias' - Front Room Gallery
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

Peter Hujar: Speed of Life - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a boh... (read more)

After casting aside Hofmann's abstract principles, his Italian palette turned sober and descriptive. Upon his return to the United States, Resika devoted himself increasingly to the exploration of light and color, and the synthesis of abstraction and representation. Over his eight decade-long career, Resika has exhibited at the Peridot Gallery, Graham Modern, Long Point Gallery, Provincetown, Berta Walker Gallery, Provincetown, Hackett-Freedman Gallery, San Francisco, and Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, New York.

Terry Winters Forces and Fictions - The Drawing Center
Through July 29, 2018 - Soho

A leading figure in the art world for four decades, Terry Winters became well known in the 1980s for his materially-conscious drawings and paintings. Representing the patterns and schema that undergird physical and intellectual life—French philosopher Gilles Deleuze is cited as an important reference—Winters's drawings of grids, networks, and knots illustrate complex encounters between biological drives, technological systems, and mental processes. The Drawing Center's Main Gallery will present an overview of Winters's drawings from 1980 to the present including full cycles of drawings, such as File Drawings (2009), as well as a selection of large-scale works on paper that foreground the overarching theme of Winters's practice: the desire to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received. Rather than offering a comprehensive drawing retrospective, the show will be organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the gallery, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images.

Hipkiss Bulwark - The Drawing Center
Through July 29, 2018 - Soho

For Bulwark, the artists' first solo museum show in New York, Hipkiss will present the most recent cycle of drawings in their series The Towers (2015–ongoing). The drawings pull from the myriad allegorical significance of towers as symbols for transcendence, irrational ambition, and piety.

As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Ti... (read more)

Derrick Adams: Sanctuary - MAD Museum of Art and Design
Through August 12, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image.Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America.

Being: New Photography 2018 - The Museum of Modern Art
Through August 19, 2018 - Manhattan

Every two years, MoMA's celebrated New Photography exhibition series presents urgent and compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year's edition, Being, asks how photography can capture what it means to be human. At a time when questions about the rights, responsibilities, and dangers inherent in being represented—and in representing others—are being debated around the world, the works featured in Being call attention to assumptions about how individuals are depicted and perceived. Many challenge the conventions of photographic portraiture, or use tactics such as masking, cropping, or fragmenting to disorient the viewer. In others, snapshots or found images are taken from their original context and placed in a new one to reveal hidden stories. While some of the works might be considered straightforward representations of individuals, others do not include images of the human body at all. Together, they explore how personhood is expressed today, and offer timely perspectives on issues of privacy and exposure; the formation of communities; and gender, heritage, and psychology. Exploring new ground and the many forms that the photographic image can take, ... (read more)

Surface/Depth - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 09, 2018 - New York

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro's signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women's domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro's femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women's work. Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro's subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find i...

AMNH to Open Amazon Adventure in 3D Digital March 9 - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 13, 2018 - New York

Amazon Adventure traces the extraordinary journey of 19th-century naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates—the most influential scientist you’ve never heard of—who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance, and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into his fascinating study of animal mimicry, the phenomenon in which one animal adopts the look of another. Filmed on location, Amazon Adventure plunges audiences into a wild world of breathtaking beauty and captivating animals, including an array of nature’s masters of mimicry. Painstakingly researched for three years, the film enlisted the expertise of more than 100 scientists and historical advisers. The team’s commitment to authenticity not only resulted in this rigorous re-creation, even using actual instruments and tools from the 1850s, but the writing team also incorporated many of Bates’ own words, as he was a gifted stor...

La Frontera - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 23, 2018 - New York

Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction.

The Brooklyn Historical Society is closed on major holidays.

Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes - New York Historical Society
Through October 08, 2018 - Upper West Side

Shoes in recent years have culturally transcended their utilitarian purpose to become an object of desire and deliberation, calling up abstract considerations—like the freighted meanings of femininity, power, domination, and aspiration—for both women and men alike. Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes highlights examples from the shoe designer's extensive private collection, assembled over three decades. The exhibition considers the story of the shoe from the perspectives of collection, consumption, presentation, and production with more than 100 pairs of shoes on view. The exhibition will explore larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women's contributions as makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Coordinated by Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History, with Edward Maeder, consulting curator, and Jeanne Gardner Gutierrez, curatorial coordinator.

Susan York Foundation - The Drawing Center
Through October 18, 2018 - Soho

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence
