Escher: The Exhibition & Experience - Industry City - Building 6
May 26, 2019 - Brooklyn

The Dutch master of illustrative illusion and paradox, M.C. Escher's astounding images have graced the walls of student dorm rooms for generations. Now, an all-new exhibition of close to 200 of his original works and hands-on interactive displays is coming to Brooklyn from a wildly-successful run across Europe. Escher: The Exhibition & Experience delves into the life and work of this influential 20-century graphic artist, who's beloved by scientists and art aficionados alike for his mind-blowing, mathematically-inspired creations. Relativity (which Family Guy 's Stewie once labeled "Crazy Stairs"), Hand With Reflecting Sphere, Metamorphosis II and Belvedere, which depicts a plausible-looking building that's actually an impossible object, are all a part of this amazing collection, going on display at New York's Industry City.

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture - The Frick Collection
Through May 26, 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 May 26, 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.

Knox Martin:Radical Structures - Hollis Taggart
Through May 27, 2019 - New York

This May, Hollis Taggart will present an in-depth exploration of the work of acclaimed artist Knox Martin, with a solo presentation at Frieze New York and a concurrent solo exhibition at its primary location in Chelsea. Martin’s practice, which spans nearly seven decades, has engaged with the conceptual and aesthetic underpinnings of a wide range of artistic movements, from Cubism to Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art. His use of bright swaths of color, precise, architectural lines, and organic forms that reference the female body have resulted in energetic and vibrant compositions that speak to a visual vocabulary that is entirely his own. For the upcoming edition of Frieze New York, Hollis Taggart will present a focused selection of paintings, from the 1950s through the 1970s, providing an introduction to the artist’s early works. To foster a broader understanding of Martin’s practice, the gallery will also open Knox Martin: Radical Structures at its 521 W. 26th Street space on May 2, 2019. The exhibition at the gallery will emphasize in particular Martin’s paintings from the 1960s and 1970s, and also include several later works, among which are two new paintings created by the...

Composing Beauty: Mapplethorpe's Quest for Perfection - Brooklyn Academy of Music
May 29, 2019 - Brooklyn

In this seminar, philosopher Jeanne Proust engages participants in an expansive conversation about Robert Mapplethorpe's work, through the lens of aesthetics and the famed photographer's quest for perfect beauty. In thinking about Mapplethorpe's carefully composed photographs of provocative subjects, can we engage with beauty solely through the aesthetic qualities of the representation itself? Or is our appreciation of beauty inherently linked to the moral connotations of the subject matter? Proust also brings Mapplethorpe's work into dialogue with French poet Baudelaire, who helped redefine our notion of beauty and what can be considered beautiful. Is beauty within the subject matter or within the spectator?

Hiroshi Wada: The First New York Solo Exhibition - Agora Gallery
Through May 31, 2019 - NYC

Japanese artist Hiroshi Wada is a calligraphy painter. Wada studied the ancient tradition of “shodo”—brush and ink drawing on rice paper— with a great master of this art form. While his art retains the spontaneity and playfulness of a child’s drawing, in fact it takes years of apprenticeship to achieve their effortless look. Wada’s aim, however, is not the traditional “sho.” The artist believes in the importance of modernizing this conventional practice. He aspires to create calligraphy that is modern, even avant-garde, yet still rooted in tradition. When he writes characters, he forgets what he has learned and starts with a “clean slate”, drawing like a child. For Wada, calligraphy is a way to bring joy and playfulness to others. Wada believes that while life’s hurdles may range from personal failures to cataclysmic disasters, art has the capacity to empower, heal, and create peace. Wada’s background as a track-and-field athlete reflects in the explosive energy and near-physical intensity to his gestural compositions. Hiroshi Wada: The First New York Solo Exhibition opens at May 11, 2019 and will be on display until May 31, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, May 1... (read more)

In and Out of the Garden - Agora Gallery
Through May 31, 2019 - NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of In and Out of the Garden, a group exhibition featuring paintings and mixed-media installations on the state of the natural world, the creatures that inhabit it, and the silent joy that comes from spending time in nature. From moody forests to the fish in the sea, the artists on display take inspiration from natural forms, carefully reconstructing the shapes and aesthetics they’ve observed in the wild. These artists find joy and peace in their subject matter, reflecting on the simplicity of nature without understating its significance. Ranging from complete abstraction to realism, the exhibition explores a range of image-making techniques and styles. Imbued with subtle intricacies and blazing expression, these artists depict nature with intelligent design. At once organic and precise, the work forces us to reexamine our relationship with the natural world and our definition of beauty. In and Out of the Garden will be on view from May 11th through May 31st with an opening reception on Thursday, May 16th from 6-8 PM. Exhibition Dates: May 11 – May 31, 2019 Reception: Thursday, May 16, 2019 6-8 PM Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat ... (read more)

Andachtsbild - Petzel Gallery
Through June 22, 2019 - New York

Petzel Gallery is pleased to present Andachtsbild, a group show opening May 3rd and on view through June 22nd at the gallery's Upper East Side location. The exhibition, curated by Karel Schampers, formerly Director of the Frans Hals Museum in the Netherlands, explores various visual modes and expressions of humanity, rooting itself in the idea of devotion. Andachtsbild presents artworks that delve into our emotional values and testify to the true experiences of human beings. It is Schampers' belief that artists are innately able to give special meaning to this subject matter as they have the ability to broach it with a broader sense of intimacy than most. Presenting the viewer with works of art that highlight eclectic interpretations of devotion and human expression will lead to a broader awareness of and engagement with what is being represented. "Andachtsbild is about love, dedication, concern, involvement, vulnerability, friendship, sincerity, consolation, and humility," Schampers says. "The show is meant to inspire and the works selected invite the viewer to further contemplate these sentiments."

Picasso's Women: Fernande to Jacqueline - Gagosian
Through June 22, 2019 - New York

Gagosian, in partnership with members of the Picasso family, is pleased to present Picasso's Women: Fernande to Jacqueline, an exhibition of paintings and sculptures that attests to the central role and influence of the many women in Picasso's life. It has been organized in honor of the gallery's late friend and colleague, Sir John Richardson. In the early 1960s, Richardson was planning to write a study of Picasso's portraits and spent hours with the artist, poring over reproductions of his works. As Picasso spoke about the complexities of his pictorial thinking—pointing out, for example, that a portrait of Dora Maar might also contain elements referring to her romantic predecessor Marie-Thérèse Walter, and her successor Françoise Gilot—Richardson began to believe that a detailed biographical treatment of Picasso's portraiture would close a notable gap in Picasso scholarship. Decades later he would sit down to write what would become the monumental multivolume biography, A Life of Picasso.

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

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.

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...

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.

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.

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

Un art autre centres on the innovative reassessments of abstraction that emerged in postwar Paris. Un art autre, a term meaning 'Art of another kind' was coined by legendary art critic and curator Michel Tapié in 1952. The artists involved provided a distinctively European parallel to the American Abstract Expressionist movement. This exhibition will offer an insight into the allure of Paris in the 1950s and '60s: a hub of cross-cultural exchange, intellectual activity, and artistic re-invention. It will feature works by artists Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell, Jean Paul Riopelle, Pierre Soulages, and Zao Wou-Ki.

Eric N. Mack: Lemme Walk Across the Room - Brooklyn Museum

Mack, transforms the Museum's Great Hall with a site-responsive installation of new and existing textile-based works hung, mounted, and draped in conversation with the classical architecture of the space. 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.

We Were Always Here: Japanese-American Post-War Pioneers of Art - Heather James Fine Art
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. Boundary-pushing paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by more than 15 artists including Yayoi Kusama, Ruth Asawa, Arakawa, and Masami Teraoka will be on view from April 4 to July 15, 2019, at Heather James Fine Art, San Francisco. 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)

Art After Stonewall, 1969–1989 - Grey Art Gallery
Through July 20, 2019 - New York

Exploring the impact of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTQ) civil-rights movement on the art world, Art After Stonewall, 1969–1989 will open during the 50th anniversary year of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, a crucial victory in the gay liberation movement. Comprising some 150 artworks and documents, the exhibition focuses on works by such openly LGBTQ artists as Nan Goldin, Holly Hughes, Robert Mapplethorpe, Tim Miller, Catherine Opie, and Andy Warhol. It also examines engagement with the emerging queer subculture in the art of Vito Acconci, Diane Arbus, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lynda Benglis, and Karen Finley. Comprising performance art, photography, painting, sculpture, film clips, video, and music alongside historical documents, the exhibition will be presented in two venues: the Grey Art Gallery, NYU, and the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, New York. Organized by the Columbus Museum of Art, Art After Stonewall is curated by Jonathan Weinberg, Tyler Cann, and Drew Sawyer, and will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

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

In 2009, the Parrish Art Museum presented Jean-Luc Mylayne's first solo American museum exhibition. Though he began working in 1976, Mylayne has created no more than 150 unique photographs. 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)

Summation & Absence: A New Science & Art Space in the Brooklyn Army Terminal - BioBAT Art Space - Brooklyn Army Terminal
Through August 16, 2019 - Brooklyn

BioBat Art Space is pleased to announce Summation & Absence, an exhibition consisting of of tactile, immersive installations where the artists engage in research that explores the human condition.

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)

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.

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.
