Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture - The Frick Collection
Through March 10, 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 March 10, 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.

The Sporkful World Tour, with Guests Madhur Jaffrey and Priya Krishna - The Greene Space
March 11, 2019 - New York

In 1973, Madhur Jaffrey's cookbook, An Invitation to Indian Cooking, introduced many Americans to the world of Indian cuisine. Since then, Jaffrey has penned dozens more cookbooks and evolved her work as Indian food has become more familiar to Americans. This May, she releases her latest work: Madhur Jaffrey's Instantly Indian Cookbook Priya Krishna is a food writer for The New York Times and Bon Appetit. Her forthcoming first cookbook, Indian-ish: Recipes and Antics From A Modern American Family, includes many classic recipes. But Krishna also tears down the walls between Indian cuisine and the many other cuisines that have influenced her. Through Jaffrey and Krishna's work, we see Indian food assimilating into mainstream American culture over the last 45 years. And that raises questions: How exactly does an immigrant cuisine assimilate? When it does, what compromises are made? What's gained and what's lost? What does this process tell us about the way immigrants themselves assimilate? And where does the cuisine go from here? Join us for this special live taping of the James Beard Award-winning food podcast The Sporkful, featuring Jaffrey and Krishna, and hosted by Dan Pash... (read more)

The Privacy Paradox | The Alliance Series - Albertine
March 13, 2019 - New York

Privacy is a primary concern for citizens today. Yet many of us willingly share vast quantities of personal information with private companies and on social media platforms even though they offer few safeguards. Cloud technology, for example, enables the storage of vast quantities of information – personal files, tax returns, family pictures, – while social media encourages us to express our personal choices and leanings, be it political, social, or sexual. This data has become an essential part of the business model of major digital companies, which use or sell this information to target audiences and tailor products. While we know this information is being harvested and at risk of being hacked, millions among us continue to trust “the cloud” with our personal information. We behave as if convenience trumped privacy. What are the dangers of such inconsistent, paradoxical behavior? What should be done to protect citizens’ right to privacy? As part of the Alliance Series at Albertine, Bernard E. Harcourt, professor, Executive Director of the Eric H. Holder Initiative for Civil and Political Rights, and Founding Director of the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought at... (read more)

Speak Torah to Power: "Creating New Narratives of Empathy" with Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum: In this powerful, engaging talk, Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum will tell the story of how it became an essential part of Muslim prayer in one community to be surrounded by the love of gay Jews, and how one straight Imam found himself as a featured speaker at New York's GLBT Pride parade. It's a story of being present and bearing deep witness, about knowing that we can't always change the world, about what it takes to look empathetically into the experience of another and to show up in acts of love and solidarity. It's about knowing that when we sit with each other in pain, we can strengthen and be strengthened, we can transform and be transformed–and we can learn how to live out our awareness that each person is created in God's image.

Roots and Wings is an exhibition of works that rest somewhere on the continuum between figuration and abstraction. Yet, all of the works share in spatially and visually embodying the drama of historic aspiration. With themes ranging from the depiction of battlefields, to death under moonlight, to the more interior struggles of domestic life and the pressures of femininity, Roots and Wings communicates a melancholic atmosphere which isn’t without a tincture of hope. Roots and Wings exhibits all the distinguishing characteristics of formalism, while showcasing all-too-familiar scenarios. In this way, the exhibition expresses the conatus of human aspiration as something that... (read more)

Ghp Exhibition: Rirkrit Tiravanija - Greenwich House Pottery
Through March 22, 2019 - New York

NEW YORK – The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. Tiravanija has transformed the gallery into a familiar environment that invites visitors to take a minute to sit, relax, have a drink and contemplate pottery. Tiravanija is known for creating similar installations and events that emphasize social engagement, as well as his traditional material-based art. He made a name for himself in the early '90s by eschewing typical visual arts practices and engaging audiences by cooking for them. He has continued this practice throughout the decades in nearly all subsequent installations and exhibitions, including during his 2017 residency at Greenwich House Pottery—cooking 3-inch thick porterhouse steak in his thrown custom-formulated flameware to make lunch for the Pottery's community. In Untitled (Billy Wilder doesn't like green tea), Tiravanija once again brings his material-based artwork together with his social practice. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Tiravanija is a Thai artist widely recognized as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work defies media-based description, as his practice combines traditional object making, p... (read more)
