The Art of Sexuality - The Playhouse
June 23, 2019 - New York

As our collective perceptions of gender and sexuality evolve, so do the ways that we express—and perceive—gender and sexuality through art. Nudity is at the forefront of this conversation. What is—or should be—the relationship between nudity and art in 2019, and who has the authority to define it? How can we evolve the societal gaze while celebrating free expression and sexual freedom in a respectful, sex-positive and artistic and authentic way? Where is the line between expression and exploitation, and who has the right to draw it? In a rare roundtable discussion led by 2018 Pulitzer Prize winning art critic Jerry Saltz, artists Marilyn Minter, Xaviera Simmons and Natalie White join Playboy in furthering this and other important dialogues surrounding art, gender and sexuality.

Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through June 23, 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.

New York to Route 66: A Pictorial History - Meet in Place

Paul Calendrillo New York and Meet in Place are proud to present New York to Route 66: A Pictorial History, by photographer, Christophe Avril. Three blocks from the Superfine Fair. Come join us as well on May 1st after 6pm. Opening Reception May 1st 6pm to 8pm May 1st to June 28th 2019 Meet in Place 75 Spring Street New York, NY 10012 Growing up in France, my first interest with the image world was looking through magazines that were hanging everywhere in our small flat, magazines like: L’Ecran, Cinémonde, Life and Vogue, and by watching the black and white TV with all the American movies. This is when I discovered the American west with John Ford movies filmed in Monument Valley and other places in Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. Everything looked so big. Also, the I loved the television series that made me travel to America, The Little House in the Prairie, Bonanza, Route 66, Wanted Dead or Alive and Daniel Boone.

In Flux: Kim Keever and Edwina White - Preview Reception - Tillou Fine Art
Through June 28, 2019 - Brooklyn

Opening on Saturday, May 4, Tillou Fine Art will present In Flux, an exhibition of ethereal new works by gallery artists Kim Keever and Edwina White. The works in the exhibition are united by an energetic, otherworldly quality. Keever’s photographs, which sit at the intersection of photography and painting, realism and abstraction, share a synergy with White’s brand new series of paintings, which envision delicately realized, esoteric forms in a curious, cosmic field. Kim Keever is well-known for creating strange and atmospheric photographic images by pouring paint into a 200-gallon water tank and then photographing the colors as they disperse and meld, creating images that evoke earthly clouds while also remaining abstract and alien. The works are mysterious and ephemeral, creating a nuanced and dreamlike space that bridges the real and surreal. Edwina White’s new abstract works mark an exciting development in her practice. Well-known for illustrating whimsical figures while toying with the surreal, i.e. a woman made of birds in flight, this new series embraces the unsettling resemblance of life forms. The works catapult fully into the realm of the imagination, ma... (read more)

Di Donna - Madison Avenue Gallery Walk
Through June 28, 2019 - New York

Di Donna Galleries announces Surrealism in Mexico, an exhibition that explores the robust creative moment that emerged between 1940 and 1955 as an international community of artists fled World War II in Europe and settled in Mexico. There, many principles that had defined the Surrealist movement were broadened and transformed in response to a new topography, new cultures, and the experience of exile, toward the creation of radically innovative new styles. This vibrant art-historical episode was made possible through liberal ideas about collaboration, immigration, and gender roles. It is particularly relevant in the context of today's cultural and political climate, where such issues remain under intense scrutiny and debate. Surrealism in Mexico is unprecedented in the United States for its subject and its scope. The exhibition will feature paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and collages by artists including Lola Álvarez Bravo, Leonora Carrington, Esteban Francés, Gunther Gerzso, Kati Horna, Frida Kahlo, Agustín Lazo, Matta, Gordon Onslow Ford, Wolfgang Paalen, Alice Rahon, Bridget Bate Tichenor, and Remedios Varo, with loans from distinguished private collections, corpo...

TheGayGaston presents: TheGayGallery WorldPride Weekend - CrossFit Hell's Kitchen NYC
June 29, 2019 -

Not every prince is looking for a princess. Not every princess is looking for a prince. Whether your looking for a prince, princess, or even a villain--TheGayGaston invites you to TheGayGallery! As a man, you aspire to look like your vision of the best male form; while as a gay man we often lust after that same ideal. l've commissioned the work of various artist to help explore this exclusively homosexual sensation of lusting for and aspiring towards the same paragon—in my case: Gaston. In the musical Fun Home, Alison, attempting to articulate how she relates with and is possibly attracted to a delivery woman in song while fixating on her "cool" key ring. This was the first time I had ever seen that reckoning of budding queerness depicted. For me, watching Gaston rip open his shirt in beauty and the best, showing off his chest hair, was my "Ring of Keys" moment. Like Alison, I was too young to make sense of what I was feeling. I was intrigued but sensed perhaps I aught not to be. Now years later I've grown a hairy chest of my own and into that male archetype that aroused me years ago. TheGayGallery will display depictions of me as this hirsute villain through the eyes of my fa... (read more)

For fifty years, as New York’s Lower East Side has gone from disinvested to gentrified, residents have lived with a wound in the neighborhood, a series of vacant lots known as the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA). Most of the buildings on the 14-square-block area were condemned for urban renewal and “clearance” in 1967, displacing almost two thousand families--mostly of limited means, and mostly families of color. Residents were promised that they would soon return to new housing, very little of which ever came. Over decades, efforts to keep out affordable housing sparked deep-rooted enmity and stalled development, making SPURA a dramatic study of failed urban renewal, as well as a microcosm epitomizing the greatest challenges faced by American cities since World War II. Fifty years of activism for affordability and justice finally led to an extraordinary process in 2012 of neighborhood negotiation through which guidelines for the site were developed that would include 50% below-market-rate housing. Essex Crossing, one of the city’s largest developments, is the manifestation of those guidelines, and is now rising on the SPURA site. The new building for the venerable Essex Mar... (read more)

Ewan Gibbs: New York / Chicago - Richard Gray Gallery
Through June 29, 2019 - New York

Richard Gray Gallery is pleased to present New York / Chicago, a solo exhibition of drawings by British artist Ewan Gibbs at the gallery’s New York location from April 25 to June 29, 2019. New York / Chicago will open with a reception for the artist on April 25, 6-8 PM. Renowned British artist Ewan Gibbs creates intimately scaled portraits of the built environment. Working from photographs taken during his travels, Gibbs carefully renders images of urban landmarks using his methodical drawing technique. The resulting images infuse the iconic manufactured exteriors of the city with an inner nostalgia and demand close observation. New York / Chicago presents a recent body of work comprising parallel but distinct series of drawings that are based on the artist’s personal encounters in the two cities. Each drawing contains thousands of minuscule pen and pencil marks and pinpricks—a system developed by Gibbs over twenty-five years ago after seeing knitting patterns containing various graphic symbols within a large, organized grid.

Kiki Kogelnik's Art at Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery - Mitchell-Innes & Nash
Through June 29, 2019 - New York

A social butterfly and fashion plate as well as an artist, Kiki Kogelnik (1935–1997) was born in Austria, but moved to NYC in 1961, just as Pop Art was starting to take off. Her work, however, wasn't about the cartoons, product brands, celebrities, advertising and other subjects associated with Warhol, Lichtenstein, Rosenquist, etc. Rather, her paintings and sculpture bounced off of couture design for sly observations on gender and the constraints imposed on women by culture and commerce.

Joel Dietz: Touch Me Deeply Opening Reception: Thursday, June 6, 6-9pm Exhibition Dates: June 6 - June 30, 2019 7 Franklin Place New York, NY 10013 May 23, 2019 For Immediate Release: NYA Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of a solo exhibition featuring over thirty new works by the cryptocurrency entrepreneur and visual artist Joel Dietz. The artist has constructed a narrative exploring interrelated and highly relevant topics about surface, depth, relationships, sexuality, desire, and finding meaningful human connections. Through this new series of prints and paintings, Dietz hopes to encourage audiences to examine their own relationship to media, technology, and others. Dietz creates highly eroticized imagery, drawing upon disparate subjects and styles ranging from masterworks of the Italian Renaissance to the vibrant aesthetic of the Burning Man festival. He applies acrylic paint to several of his prints in order to add texture and give his works a heightened sense of tactility and sensuality. Overall, the innovator-cum-artist is interested in probing the historic relationships between artist, model, and viewer. What’s more, his art asks spectator... (read more)

Cyrilla Mozenter: See Why - Lesley Heller Gallery
Through June 30, 2019 - New York

Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present, See Why, an exhibition of new work by Cyrilla Mozenter. A follow-up to her previous exhibition with the gallery—the failed utopian (2015)—See Why continues Mozenter's focus on wool felt sculptures, large scale wall-hanging felt works, and delicate framed works on paper. The artworks further explore Mozenter's abstract narratives of text and sound—animated through personal pictographic imagery—and the deconstruction of letters as both images and sounds. Mozenter's practice is influenced by the writings of Gertrude Stein. Explorations of the phonetic sounds of letters have also been a reoccurring element in Mozenter's work, doubling at times as the works' titles. The letters and titles are playful and absurd; and defy singular interpretations.

JF Lynch: Word Drawings - Lesley Heller Gallery
Through June 30, 2019 - New York

"If you set pen to paper, is the letter "i" a written sound sign or a drawn glyph of a standing figure? When you look at a narrative drawing and understand the story, have you not just read the drawing?" Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present the first New York solo show of JF Lynch in our Project Space. Lynch is an artist known for his monochromatic works that feature abstracted letters and words set within a dark expanse. Working predominantly with charcoal on paper or canvas, Lynch's work bridges painting, drawing, and writing.

Brilliant Opening Reception: Thursday, June 6, 6-9pm Exhibition Dates: June 6 - June 30, 2019 7 Franklin Place New York, NY 10013 May 25, 2019 For Immediate Release: NYA Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition focused on the theme of brilliance, as curated by Shane Townley. In media ranging from painting to sculpture to skateboards, over forty artists will examine the formal properties of light and illumination as well as consider the idea of artistic genius or brilliance. Throughout the history of art, artists have manipulated light in order to suggest or symbolize intellectual enlightenment, spiritual awakening, and a host of other representational purposes. In addition to exploring the nature of light, the cultural producers assembled for this exhibition will probe contemporary notions of the artist, the practitioner, the creator. Overall, they present a multiplicity of responses to this historic discourse and shed new light on how we think about the role of the artist in the twenty-first century. In Rafael Colon’s masterful appropriation of Gustav Klimt’s infamous painting The Kiss (1907-08), he re-positions the subjects of the original painting ont... (read more)

Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through June 30, 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.

Warhol Women - Lévy Gorvy
Through July 05, 2019 - New York

Lévy Gorvy is pleased to announce Warhol Women, an exhibition devoted exclusively to Andy Warhol’s portraits of women from the early 1960s through the 1980s. On view from April 25 through June 15 at Lévy Gorvy’s landmark building on Madison Avenue, the selection of paintings, covering the full scope of Warhol’s career, invites the viewer to ponder the artist’s complex and often contradictory relationship to myths and ideals of femininity, beauty, and power. Over the course of his career, Warhol depicted an astonishing range of women, from heiresses and Hollywood stars to drag queens and denizens of New York’s underground art scene. Through paintings riotous and defiant, vulnerable and demure, Warhol Women sheds fresh light on both the artist’s oeuvre and our present moment, wherein questions of female empowerment and the construction of identity through images are as urgent as ever.

Through July 07, 2019 - Brooklyn

Mack's work explodes the boundaries of painting, sculpture, and fashion, dynamically reflecting and framing the rich visual experiences of the everyday.

#StarringJohnCho Exhibition - Pearl River Mart Gallery
Through July 08, 2019 - New York

It’s not just a hashtag — it’s a cultural movement. Screenwriter, creative strategist, and cultural activist William Yu started the viral #StarringJohnCho project to address the lack of Asian American representation in Hollywood and to bring to life the idea of an Asian American leading actor. Now the hashtag is brought to life in a multimedia installation. Reminiscent of a movie theater lobby, the installation invites viewers to the imagined world of John Cho as a lead actor, and makes tangible the possibilities for a new kind of movie going experience for Asian Americans. See in person what movies like The Avengers, Jurassic World, and (500) Days of Summer would look like with an Asian American star. And, become a superhero yourself with the show's interactive portion! Join us in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month for the opening reception: May 18, 5 to 7pm. Free and open to the public.

Through July 15, 2019 - San Francisco

Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm Saturday 10:30am – 5pm Heather James Fine Art is pleased to present our newest location in San Francisco on the 5th floor of the well-known 49 Geary Street art collective. For over 20 years, Heather James Fine Art has maintained a reputation for the highest level of service to collectors world-wide. Now, we're excited to offer art from our expansive inventory in a location of convenience serving the entire Bay Area.

We Were Always Here: Japanese-American Post-War Pioneers of Art provides an insightful chapter within the many cross-cultural narratives that developed and flourished in American art after World War II. While several artists featured in the exhibition were born in the U.S., others chose the U.S. as their home. This convergence of identities—taking place during a both highly expressive and repressive period in America—resulted in particularly potent work, which expanded the vocabulary of painting while introduc...

Dot, Point, Period - Castelli Gallery
Through July 20, 2019 - New York

The Leo Castelli Gallery opened in New York at 4 East 77th Street on February 10, 1957. In 1958 the gallery gave Jasper Johns his first exhibition. Within 10 years, the gallery became the international epicenter for Pop, Minimal, and Conceptual Art, showing among others Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, and Keith Sonnier. In 1971 the Castelli Gallery opened a second space at 420 West Broadway in SoHo. During this decade, several Conceptual artists joined the gallery, including Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner and Hanne Darboven. Leo Castelli, the gallery's founder, had an unparalleled eye for quality, combined with his extraordinary skill for nurturing and promoting new art and artists. These essential qualities secured his position as possibly the most respected and influential advocate for contemporary art of his time. In 1999 the Leo Castelli Gallery moved to the Upper East Side, where it has since been located. The gallery is now directed by Castelli's wife, Barbara Bertozzi Castelli. Ms. Bertozzi Castelli is an art historian whose specialization is ... (read more)

Exhibition opening: Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling - Bohemian National Hall
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

[2nd Floor] An opening for the exhibition "Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling" featuring photographs by Czech documentary photographer Dana Kyndrova who examines the many facets of women's lives. The presented photographs - shot primarily in the former Czechoslovakia and later in the Czech Republic, but also in some Western countries - show the precious moments of daily life, child birth, the tensions of school exams, falling in love. The project called "Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling" includes photographs from the 1970s - 1990s, and its aim is to capture the life of a woman in its full variety, from birth to death. The project is divided into seven parts – adolescence, maternity and family, fun, work, eroticism, faith, and old age. Apart from the objective chronology of life's pilgrimage of a human being, or more precisely, of a woman, the photographs perceive the principal life values, which accompany and influence us during our entire existence. The theme is more or less general; thus the question is not to portray a particular environment or a characteristics of a certain country. One could say the woman portrayed is a „European" woman. A substantial part of the photograp... (read more)

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.

Jean-Luc Mylayne at the Parrish Art Museum - Parrish Art Museum
Through July 28, 2019 - Water Mill

Ten years later, this new show Jean-Luc Mylayne: A Matter of Place reveals the artist's personal view of landscape and nature. On view from March 24 to July 28, the exhibition features nine monumentally scaled photographs made in New Mexico and Texas. The latter juxtaposes natural and man-made, stillness and motion, calm and tension within poetic and mysterious photographs.

Jean-Luc Moulène - Sculpture Center
Through July 29, 2019 - Long Island City

Initially known for his enigmatic photographic endeavors, Moulène's more recent projects have investigated the intersections of advanced technology and contemporary material culture. In consideration of current advances in 3D modeling and fabrication, Moulène compares this moment in the history of object making to the advent of photography and its total transformation of human experience. While photography reproduced the world as an image, we are now about to print it in 3D.

The Female Gaze: Women Surrealists in the Americas and Europe - Heather James Fine Art
Through July 31, 2019 - New York

Piercing through the male gaze, works by leading American, British, Latin American, and Polish female Surrealistartists will be on view at Heather James Fine Art, New York, from May 8 – July 31, 2019. The Female Gaze: Women Surrealists in the Americas and Europe reframes the history of the movement by focusing exclusively on the pivotal role played by female artists as independent from—rather than in relationship to—their male counterparts. Featuring paintings, sculpture, mixed media, and collages spanning from 1938 to 2008, the exhibition also seeks to reveal the underlying political, social, and cultural attitudes that influenced ideas of gender. An opening reception will be held on May 8, from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue including essays by Gloria Orenstein, Professor Emerita, Comparative Literature and Gender Studies, University of Southern California, and Patryk Tomaszewski, an art historian at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Orenstein noted, "I have been fortunate to know women Surrealists such as Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini, and their work speaks to me on so many levels both spiritually and viscerally. I am thrilled that He... (read more)

Garry Winogrand: Color - Brooklyn Museum
Through August 18, 2019 - Brooklyn

Garry Winogrand: Color is the first exhibition dedicated to the nearly forgotten color photographs of Garry Winogrand (1928–1984), one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century. While almost exclusively known for his black-and-white images that pioneered a "snapshot aesthetic" in contemporary art, Winogrand produced more than 45,000 color slides between the early 1950s and late 1960s. Coming from a working-class background in the Bronx and practicing at the time when photographs had little market value, Winogrand did not have the resources to produce costly and time consuming prints of his color slides during his lifetime. Yet, he remained dedicated to the medium for nearly twenty years. The exhibition presents an enveloping installation of large-scale projections comprising more than 400 rarely or never-before seen color photographs that capture the social and physical landscape of New York City and the United States. On his numerous journeys through Midtown Manhattan and across the country, Winogrand explored the raw visual poetics of public life—on streets and highways, in suburbs, at motels, theaters, fairgrounds, and amusement parks. For him, the industr... (read more)

Pratt Manhattan Gallery Presents: Mediated Meditations - Pratt Manhattan Gallery
Through September 07, 2019 - New York

Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents a multi-media group exhibition with a selection of Pratt Institute Fine Arts MFA sculpture alumni. The exhibition, titled Mediated Meditations, is curated by New York-based cultural anthropologist, curator, and essayist Niama Safia Sandy. In Mediated Meditations, the selected works interrogate relationships with our bodies, nature, language, internet culture, gender, sexuality - and overall and most importantly - our relationship to our humanity and ability to recognize another's. The artists challenge and reshape the genre of sculpture with unique material approaches to ask questions about our experience as humans. Additionally, the exhibition examines how technology can be engaged as a material, used by the artists to create a means to order the world and solve problems, as well as navigate an artistic practice. Art is a conduit for making sense of lived experiences which are often viewed through the prism of subcategories — the built environment, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and spirituality. In this exhibition, these categories inform the selected artists’ sensibilities, and the way they each manipulate their materials to observe,... (read more)

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.

Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs - The Vilcek Foundation
Through November 13, 2019 - New York

Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs brings together drawings, paintings, and photography by the American Modernist artist, while examining the confluence of two seemingly disparate series completed later in his life, Torn Signs and Semana Santa. Though their subject matter is drastically different—one is inspired by tattered advertisements on the streets of New York, while the other depicts observers of Holy Week in Seville, Spain—Crawford connects them through his extraordinary visual memory, working method, and sense of spatial organization. The convergence of these two incredible series culminates in Torn Signs, 1974-76, the powerful, large-scale painting that sits at the thematic center of the exhibition.

Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs - Vilcek Foundation
Through November 13, 2019 - New York

This exhibition and accompanying catalogue examine the confluence of Ralston Crawford's Torn Signs and Semana Santa series, two seemingly disparate themes connected by Crawford’s extraordinary visual memory, working method, and inventiveness. Over the course of four decades, Crawford recorded, transformed, and often merged his experiences and memories in photographs, drawings, etchings, paintings, and film. In 1938, Crawford first photographed a ripped and pasted over sign on the street in Philadelphia. Crawford returned to the theme frequently in the last thirty years of his life, capturing the layered and weathered advertisements plastered around New York City. During this time, he also traveled frequently to Seville, Spain and in 1972, documented the experience of Holy Week. Crawford drew inspiration from a constellation of memory and invention that flowed in multiple directions at once. For him, the rhythmic images of hooded penitents processing through the streets for Holy Week recalled formal elements of his Torn Signs imagery. The convergence of these two incredible series culminated in the powerful, large-scale painting Torn Signs, 1974-76 (Vilcek Foundation Collection).... (read more)

Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall - Brooklyn Museum
Through December 08, 2019 - Brooklyn

Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising—a six-day clash between police and civilians ignited by a routine raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City—and explores its profound legacy within contemporary art and visual culture today. The exhibition draws its title from the rallying words of transgender artist and activist Marsha P. Johnson, underscoring both the precariousness and the vitality of LGBTQ+ communities. The exhibition presents twenty-two LGBTQ+ artists born after 1969 whose works grapple with the unique conditions of our political time, and question how moments become monuments. Through painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and video, these artists engage interconnected themes of revolt, commemoration, care, and desire.
