It features our 18th-century Neapolitan Crèche, given in memory of Helen Northrup Knox by her close friend the late Mrs. Howell H. Howard. The creche represents a dramatic Nativity scene with sequential narrative episodes. The figurines' faces express vivid emotions and their poses include emphatic gestures. The setting for the Crèche simulates the steep rock of the Neapolitan coastal area, reminiscent of 13th- and 14th-century Italian paintings. This set of Crèche figurines is one of only three in the United States, with the other two in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the White House.

He brings his version of the live mix tape to the lobby of Ace Hotel, where funky jazz, deep funk, raw soul, classic hip hop, real reggae, disco tracks, and drum breaks of all kinds make you move and groove like the park jams back in the day.

Through December 15, 2018 - New York

Opening Reception: October 19, 6 – 8PM Location: Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue Gagosian is pleased to present a selection from Nate Lowman's Maps series, as well as new work by the artist.

Liliana Porter: Other Situations - El Museo del Barrio
Through January 27, 2019 - New York

Born in Argentina in 1941, Liliana Porter, originally educated in printmaking — a discipline that deeply influenced her practice — moved to New York in 1964, where she cofounded the New York Graphic Workshop with artists Luis Camnitzer and José Guillermo Castillo. Since then, Porter has worked in a variety of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, assemblages, video, installation and, more recently, theater. Porter's art has been exhibited in more than 35 countries in over 450 group shows, and is a part of public and private collections including El Museo del Barrio. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, and Sculpture Magazine, among other publications. In 2013, the Fundación Patricia Phelps de Cisneros published the book Liliana Porter in Conversation with Inés Katzenstein as part of the Conversaciones/Conversations series. Galleries in Europe, Latin America and the United States represent the artist.
