Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture - The Frick Collection
Through April 14, 2019 - New York

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture is the first major exhibition in the United States to focus on the portraiture of Giovanni Battista Moroni (1520/24–1579/80). A painter of portraits and religious subjects, Moroni is celebrated as an essential figure in the northern Italian tradition of naturalistic painting that includes Leonardo da Vinci, the Carracci, and Caravaggio. This exhibition, shown exclusively at The Frick Collection, brings to light the innovation of the artist, whose role in a larger history of European portraiture has yet to be fully explored. His famous Tailor (National Gallery, London), for example, anticipates by decades the "narrative" portraits of Rembrandt, and his Pace Rivola Spini (Accademia Carrara, Bergamo), arguably the first independent full-length portrait of a standing woman produced in Italy, prefigures the many women that Van Dyck would paint in this format in the following century.

Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through April 14, 2019 - New York

The exhibition in the Portico Gallery presents a promised gift to the Frick Collection: seventy-five objects from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel — the finest collection of French faience in private hands — to tell the fascinating and complex history of this particular art form. A feat of great technical achievement, French faience was introduced to Lyon in the second half of the sixteenth century by skilled Italian immigrants — the French word "faience" derives from the northern Italian city of Faenza. Over the next two centuries, production spread throughout the provinces of metropolitan France. The fine decoration of French faience draws inspiration from multiple sources, including Italian maiolica, Asian porcelain, and contemporary engravings. The forms of its platters, bowls, plates, and ewers derive mostly from European ceramics and silver. These influences come together in works of great originality.

Helen Ellis: Southern Lady Code W/ Ann Napolitano and Hannah Tinti - Books are Magic
April 15, 2019 - Cobble Hill

Helen Ellis has a mantra: "If you don't have something nice to say, say something not-so-nice in a nice way." Say "weathered" instead of "she looks like a cake left out in the rain." Say "early-developed" instead of "brace face and B cups." And for the love of Coke Salad, always say "Sorry you saw something that offended you" instead of "Get that stick out of your butt, Miss Prissy Pants." In these twenty-three raucous essays Ellis transforms herself into a dominatrix Donna Reed to save her marriage, inadvertently steals a $795 Burberry trench coat, witnesses a man fake his own death at a party, avoids a neck lift, and finds a black-tie gown that gives her the confidence of a drag queen. While she may have left her home in Alabama, married a New Yorker, forgotten how to drive, and abandoned the puffy headbands of her youth, Helen Ellis is clinging to her Southern accent like mayonnaise to white bread, and offering readers a hilarious, completely singular view on womanhood for both sides of the Mason-Dixon. Helen Ellis is the acclaimed author of Eating the Cheshire Cat and the national bestseller AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE. She is a poker player who competes on the national tournament circ... (read more)

Finding New York's Dutch Roots: A Field Guide Led by Russell Shorto - Brooklyn Historical Society
April 16, 2019 - Brooklyn

In the 1600s, the Dutch colony of New Netherland ranged up and down the East Coast, and the Hudson River was its spine. The colony was the base from which the Dutch laid claim to the New World, and from which they battled with their arch-enemy, England. England won the power struggle, and New Netherland is history, but its legacy is hiding in plain sight. This talk will be a travelogue of New Netherland, from "Breuckelen" to Rensselaer. Identifying place names, old barns, bits of leftover language, street patterns, and Dutch customs. Come join Russell Shorto, author of The Island at the Center of the World, as he (virtually) roams the Hudson River from New York City to Albany, bringing the Dutch period back to life.

Sally Rooney: Normal People with Emma Straub - First Unitarian Church
April 16, 2019 - Brooklyn

At school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other. He's popular and well-adjusted, star of the school football team, while she is lonely, proud and intensely private. But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her job at Marianne's house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers—one they are determined to conceal. A year later, they're both studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. And as she veers into self-destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other. Sally Rooney was born in the west of Ireland in 1991. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Granta and The London Review of Books. Winner of the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award in 2017, she is the author of Conversations with Friends and the editor of the Irish literary journal The Stingi... (read more)

Opening the Window - Agora Gallery
Through April 16, 2019 - NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Opening the Window, on view March 26, 2019 through April 16, 2019. The exhibition features eleven artists, all of whom present unique perspectives on the dichotomy between figuration and abstraction. This selection of artists includes Howard Harris, Benjamin L.M., Cordes Yorio, Vanessa Elaine, Renzo Sanchez-Silva, Emmanuelle Auzias, Vargas Guevara, Fleur Campbell, Claudio Stefanoni, Wendy Yeager, and Carlos Arango (clos). The exhibition title Opening the Window suggests a spontaneous sense of discovery, allowing a new atmosphere and light to enter the closure of a room. The more traditionally figurative works on exhibit incorporate different media and showcase landscapes; the less representational works, by contrast, alter conventional representations of figure and ground, creating a new perspectival gestalt in the process. Lastly, the purely abstract pieces seem to communicate a covert message, a semaphore of pure color, contours, and shapes. The works on view introduce viewers to new ways of decoding the binary of abstraction/figuration. Between these two poles is the making of representation, the fidelity art has to spatial perceptio...

After discovering photography as a teenager through her high school's photo club, Lillian rejects her parents' expectations of college and marriage and moves to New York City in 1955.

LINDSAY PACKER: CALL AND RESPONSE: DEPTH OF FIELD WITH MELANIE MAAR - ISSUE Project Room
April 18, 2019 - Brooklyn

Thursday, April 18th, light and color improviser Lindsay Packer premieres DEPTH OF FIELD, her first commissioned work as a 2019 ISSUE Artist-In-Residence. Throughout 2019, Packer creates new improvisational work in support of a research and performance project entitled Call and Response. Each program in Call and Response involves a new collaborator and builds a new conversation between elements of color, light, ephemeral form, movement, sound and space. In Call and Response: DEPTH OF FIELD, Lindsay Packer collaborates with dancer and choreographer Melanie Maar. Sharing and, at times, exchanging the responsibilities of their own established practices in improvisation and making, the artists use light, color, repetition, movement and the sounds and reverberations that emanate from their movements to define and redefine the space around them. Light amplifies their smallest adjustments and decisions -- expanding beams of light and leading edges of shadow extend actions beyond the body. This work investigates the inter-relatedness of things in an unfolding conversation between the seen and unseen, between whispers and communication across distance.

Kgb: Drunken Careening Writers - KGB Bar
April 18, 2019 - New York

KGB: Drunken Careening Writers

David T. Little - Miller Theatre
April 18, 2019 - New York

David T. Little grapples with essential human issues through powerfully dramatic compositions. This Portrait features two major works—companion pieces presented together for the first time—that explore the tension between the individual, secrecy, and state violence. Haunt of Last Nightfall, a visceral "ghost play in two acts" for percussion quartet and electronics, examines America's role in the 1981 massacre at El Mozote. AGENCY, for string quartet and electronics, questions individual autonomy, whether we are subject to unknown and powerful social and political forces. Together, they offer a disquieting account of our place in contemporary society.

Sarah Blake: Naamah - Books are Magic
April 18, 2019 - Cobble Hill

With the coming of the Great Flood—the mother of all disasters—only one family was spared, drifting on an endless sea, waiting for the waters to subside. We know the story of Noah, moved by divine vision to launch their escape. Now, in a work of astounding invention, acclaimed writer Sarah Blake reclaims the story of his wife, Naamah, the matriarch who kept them alive. Here is the woman torn between faith and fury, lending her strength to her sons and their wives, caring for an unruly menagerie of restless creatures, silently mourning the lover she left behind. Here is the woman escaping into the unreceded waters, where a seductive angel tempts her to join a strange and haunted world. Here is the woman tormented by dreams and questions of her own—questions of service and self-determination, of history and memory, of the kindness or cruelty of fate. In fresh and modern language, Blake revisits the story of the Ark that rescued life on earth, and rediscovers the agonizing burdens endured by the woman at the heart of the story. Naamah is a parable for our time: a provocative fable of body, spirit, and resilience. Sarah Blake is the recipient of a Literature Fellowship from the Natio... (read more)

Together, they changed the face of American entertainment—at a perilous cost. Featuring show-stopping choreography, including original pieces as well as some of the most iconic works of Bob and Gwen's careers, Fosse/Verdon tells the story of these two brilliant, complicated individuals—the love they shared, the art they created, and the price they paid in the pursuit of greatness.

Computational Justice - Pioneer Works
April 21, 2019 - Brooklyn

Women in STEM regularly experience harmful immediate and long-term consequences of gender bias. How can we find optimal ways to confront this gender bias, e.g. with the help of allies? In this workshop led by computational neuroscientist Ida Momennejad, we will answer this question using agent based simulation, a method for implementing and testing long-term consequences of simple interaction rules, and Python to manipulate and test sexist interactions and their costs in an environment with a 20/80 gender ratio. We will then compare the long-term consequences of different strategies of bias confrontation. Ultimately, we will discuss how these simulations can be applied to institutional policies and future projects that make injustice visible and seek to offer balance.

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture - The Frick Collection
Through April 21, 2019 - New York

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture is the first major exhibition in the United States to focus on the portraiture of Giovanni Battista Moroni (1520/24–1579/80). A painter of portraits and religious subjects, Moroni is celebrated as an essential figure in the northern Italian tradition of naturalistic painting that includes Leonardo da Vinci, the Carracci, and Caravaggio. This exhibition, shown exclusively at The Frick Collection, brings to light the innovation of the artist, whose role in a larger history of European portraiture has yet to be fully explored. His famous Tailor (National Gallery, London), for example, anticipates by decades the "narrative" portraits of Rembrandt, and his Pace Rivola Spini (Accademia Carrara, Bergamo), arguably the first independent full-length portrait of a standing woman produced in Italy, prefigures the many women that Van Dyck would paint in this format in the following century.

Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through April 21, 2019 - New York

The exhibition in the Portico Gallery presents a promised gift to the Frick Collection: seventy-five objects from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel — the finest collection of French faience in private hands — to tell the fascinating and complex history of this particular art form. A feat of great technical achievement, French faience was introduced to Lyon in the second half of the sixteenth century by skilled Italian immigrants — the French word "faience" derives from the northern Italian city of Faenza. Over the next two centuries, production spread throughout the provinces of metropolitan France. The fine decoration of French faience draws inspiration from multiple sources, including Italian maiolica, Asian porcelain, and contemporary engravings. The forms of its platters, bowls, plates, and ewers derive mostly from European ceramics and silver. These influences come together in works of great originality.

"Two Doors Down" Painting Compilation Exhibiting at Chase Contemporary Gallery - Chase Contemporary Gallery
Through April 28, 2019 - New York

Featured “Two Doors Down” Painting Compilation Exhibiting At Chase Contemporary Gallery April 4th – 28th In New York City Stanley Casselman & Hallie Hart will be presenting their “Two Doors Down” exhibition at Chase Contemporary Gallery (521 W 23rd Street / New York, NY) opening April 4th and ending on April 28th. Stanley Casselman’s “Liquid” paintings specifically are acrylic on polyester screen and then sprayed with silver nitrate. The process of applying the silver nitrate is called spray chrome. Silver nitrate is what's on the back of a mirror. The influence for using the process came from two other artists, Jason Martin and Anselm Reyle who've been incorporating it into their practices for about half a dozen years. “My practice is process based. I embrace accident, random occurrence and I'm far more interested in what 'we' as humanity don't know vs. what we already do. I like to think of it as the leading edge of knowledge, the known vs. the unknown. And specifically to my practice I'm interested in what's visually new, what hasn't been done before and more importantly where the experience of color, line and form can take the viewer,” said Stanley Casselman “In my ...

Tambaran 2 Gallery and The TAX Collection are pleased to present 'Americana' - a solo exhibition by New York artist Kevin Champeny. Opening April 11th, Champeny's latest exhibition explores current issues in America including: politics, mental health, gun violence, beauty, social media and drugs. The work will be on display at The Tambaran2 Gallery on 82nd street, just steps from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Champeny reinvents the traditional mosaic with his sculpted, cast and hand placed pieces creating an interactive platform. He encourages the work to be viewed from both up close and far away, allowing the observer to derive meaning from its juxtaposition. Champeny states “Mosaics enable me to elicit the tension and stories between hand sculpted and cast pixels and the overall image they compose. I want my art to open a conversation for the viewer. I hope people discovering and viewing my pieces will connect their own experiences to the choices I made when creating the work”.

HSA Department Of Art & Design Presents INTERWOVEN - HSA Gallery
Through May 25, 2019 - New York

The Harlem School of the Arts with curator and Director of Art & Design, Adrienne Elise Tarver, proudly presents, “INTERWOVEN,” an exhibition featuring the work of artists Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby. This unique exhibition presents married couple, Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby’s work side-by-side highlighting their individual and mutual interests in the ties that bind generations in the black community. Textiles play a large role in these recent bodies of work, as they have in the histories of the black community in America. From the cotton picked in southern plantations to the intricate patchwork quilts made from scraps of old clothes, there’s resilience and resourcefulness that is woven into the threads of black history in the United States. Letitia presents work from her series “40 Acres...Gumbo Ya Ya,” referencing the unfulfilled promise of land to formerly enslaved individuals in post-civil-war America, and the Cajun phrase meaning everybody is talking at once. She stretches images of rural Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas printed on fabric over embroidery hoops, referencing domestic work and handmaid heirlooms which cultivate sentimental value over generations instead ...

Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless - Red Bull Arts
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

Red Bull Arts New York is proud to present Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless, the first posthumous retrospective of the life and work of the influential, multi-disciplinary artist. Opening to the public on March 6, 2019, and remaining on view until July 28, the ambitious exhibition returns the spotlight to one of contemporary art's most prescient figures, detailing her historic importance and contemporary relevance. Gretchen Bender (1951-2004) was a pioneering artist who worked across video, sculpture, computer graphics, photography, print and installation to interrogate the accelerated age of mass media. Moving to New York in 1978, Bender quickly fell in with the Post-Pictures Generation scene, centered around the artist-run gallery Nature Morte, as well as a milieu of artist and performers connected to The Kitchen. She befriended and collaborated with such figures as artists Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman, the choreographers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, and musicians Stuart Argabright and Vernon Reid. Building upon techniques developed in her years running a feminist-Marxist screen-printing collective in Washington, D.C., Bender's early two-dimensional work, made in New York, ... (read more)

Kwang Young Chun: Aggregations - Brooklyn Museum
Through July 28, 2019 - Brooklyn

South Korean artist Kwang Young Chun combines hundreds of paper-wrapped parcels to create sculptural compositions, called Aggregations, that look like crystal formations, asteroids, or the surface of the moon. The Aggregations are simultaneously Space Age and nostalgic, beautiful and violent, powerful and fragile. They draw on the artist's training in abstract painting as well as memories of his childhood, when Korean apothecaries sold medicine in similar little bundles.

Hogarth: Cruelty and Humor - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 22, 2019 - Manhattan

The satirical scenes of the celebrated English artist William Hogarth (1697–1764) are iconic representations of eighteenth-century urban life at a time of great socio-economic disparity. An academic outsider and an activist, Hogarth was driven to innovate, creating new genres and modes of expression in his painting, printmaking, and drawing in his effort to elevate the status of British art. This exhibition will investigate the ways the artist used humor, satire, and political commentary to engage a broad audience and agitate for legislation and political goals. The exhibition features the Morgan's exceptional cache of six sheets preparatory for two of Hogarth's most revered print series, both issued in February 1751: Beer Street and Gin Lane and The Four Stages of Cruelty. The story of Hogarth's images reveal an artist who addressed the ills and injustices of life in a modern metropolis, exploring the connections between violence, crime, alcohol abuse, and cruelty to animals in ways that would amuse, occasionally shock, and edify his audience.
