Gallery Lecture: Appropriation in the Digital Age with Deborah Winiarski - The Art Students League
November 14, 2017 - New York

Appropriation – the 'borrowing' of pre-existing objects or images – has played a significant role in the history of art. In this age of the Internet, the sharing and appropriation of images has become even more pervasive. This lecture will explore the history of appropriation in art and the sometimes very fine lines between appropriation, plagiarism, influence and inspiration. Differences between derivative vs. transformative work and the impacts on artist copyright will also be discussed. Deborah Winiarski teaches mixed media classes at the Art Students League of New York and has been teaching encaustic workshops here since 2009. Her work has been exhibited at numerous venues in New York City and across the United States. Her work is represented by Denise Bibro Fine Art, NYC, NY; Elizabeth Clement Fine Art, Boston, MA; and Broadhurst Gallery, Pinehurst, NC. For more information about the artist, please visit:

November 14, 2017 - Long Island City

In conjunction with the exhibition Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989, this conversation addresses the connections between art making and computing since the 1960s, with a focus on women artists and designers. The exhibition explores the postwar rise of advanced mainframe technologies, and how artists have been at the vanguard of using computing to develop new forms and reinvent traditional modes of artistic production. The impact of early computing technologies on histories of art and design in the 20th century is central to understanding how we live today. Participants include artist Beryl Korot, whose innovative video installation Text and Commentary (1976–77) draws together artistic practices ranging from weaving to computing; Zabet Patterson, Associate Professor, Art History and Criticism, Stony Brook University, and author of Peripheral Vision: Bell Labs, the S-C 4020, and the Origins of Computer Art (MIT Press, 2015), a material and technological history of art and science at Bell Labs; and artist Tamiko Thiel, lead designer of the CM-2 Supercomputer (1987), a commercially produced device that marked a significant advance in the history of da...

Educator Evening: Art in the Open - Museum of the City of New York
November 15, 2017 - New York

Join curator Dr. Lilly Tuttle for a guided tour of the exhibition Art in the Open: Fifty Years of Public Art in New York, and explore works that have transformed public spaces and public expectations of the role and potential of art. Until the 1960s, most public art in New York City was limited to war memorials, civic-minded murals, or relief sculpture embodying universal values like "Fraternity" or "Wisdom." But the late 1960s brought a new era that embraced the individual artist's voice and vision in the public realm. In the years since, hundreds of innovative art works, both permanent and temporary, have been installed in the public spaces of New York, making this the most robust and vibrant environment for public art in the world.

Souvenirs: New New York Icons - Storefront for Art and Architecture
November 18, 2017 - New York

As a contemporary form of commercialized nostalgia, souvenirs are the ultimate cliche in the representation of a city. Pocket-sized, acritical, and cheap, they populate tourist sites all over the world with a patina of innocence. Producing collective imaginaries made up of lines that follow the profiles of superlative sculptures, buildings, and stories, souvenirs have become the reference points that anchor a particular culture in time, representing (consciously or not) political, cultural, and social values. Souvenirs: New New York Icons, the second iteration of Storefront's model show, commissions 59+ objects that redefine New York's iconic imagery. Inspired by each of the city's Community Districts, more than 59 artists, architects, and designers have reimagined the referential images that constitute the global perception of the city, proposing new understandings of the urban experience. Challenging the symbols that have permeated the gift shop, Souvenirs presents critical approaches to the shifting and complex iconography of the city. The exhibition introduces new objects and, with them, new ways to relate to form, matter, affect, representation, and agency.

Tsibi Geva: Jolt - Albertz Benda
Through November 18, 2017 - New York

Albertz Benda is pleased to present Tsibi Geva: Jolt, one of Israel's most critically acclaimed artists, on view from October 12 – November 18, 2017. Having shown in New York with Annina Nosei for the past two decades, Tsibi Geva: Jolt will be the artist's first solo exhibition at Albertz Benda, featuring a new body of work and selected pieces from his solo presentation in the Israeli Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale. In his latest series of paintings, Geva addresses concepts such as migration, instability and disintegration from a sociopolitical perspective and within the medium of painting itself. The layers of paint on the canvas alternately reveal and obscure fragments of bodies, architectural structures, and natural elements. These layered compositions confront the physicality of the materials while reflecting personal and cultural discourses. Geva delves into his psyche through a process of spontaneous mark-making and expressive gesture in the spirit of- but not defined by- abstract expressionism while also channeling the atmosphere of his surroundings. In works such as Untitled, 2017, the rounded forms and flowing paint flirt with representation, evoking an a... (read more)

Patterned Hat Designs - Jewish Museum

Artist-Led Studio Workshop - Jewish Museum
November 19, 2017 - Upper East Side

Brian Batt: Greenhouse - Foley Gallery
Through November 19, 2017 - New York

Artist Brian Batt debuts his latest works – all part of his new "GREENHOUSE" series—at a pop-up at Foley Gallery (59 Orchard St) on New York’s Lower East Side. Open from November 8 through November 19, the exhibition features 21 original works —paintings and drawings— created by Batt over the last two years. Also on view: "Women & Flowers" is a series by New York-based photographer, Christina Arza. Batt’s style, comparable to that of Chuck Close, invites the viewer to ingest life through a kaleidoscope of color, depth, and shocking precision. Until recent months, Batt has mainly focused his molecular creativity on world famous icons, such as Questlove and Pete Townshend, or city landmarks, such as Katz’s Deli. Now, with "GREENHOUSE," Batt offers an escape from bright lights and urban sprawl to the lush beauty, inspired by quiet moments in his Brooklyn rooftop garden. A perfect foil for "GREENHOUSE," Christina Arza’s "Women & Flowers" draws inspiration from classical painting and photography portraiture. The images were shot on medium format and each capture women with a flower of their choice in an intimate environment.

The artists selected for Open Sessions may or may not draw as their primary means of art-making. The two-year program engages musicians, architects, dancers, poets—anyone who is interested in expanding the boundaries of drawing. Open Sessions artists work together to create a dynamic, continuous conversation, viewing drawing as an activity rather than a product.

Draw Jam - The Drawing Center
Through November 19, 2017 - New York,

What the Body Can Do: Open Sessions 11, the final exhibition of the program's 2016–17 cycle, captures the movement and potential of individual bodies in collective action. The artists in this exhibition dissect spectacles of war, memorialize immigrant and refugee narratives, savor protest cinema and images produced by the paparazzi. The exhibition features artists, Danielle Dean, Olalekan Jeyifous, Jennifer May Reiland, Slinko, and H?ng-An Tr??ng. Dean's animations unravel speech; Jeyifous' images collapse surrealist aesthetics and the design troupe of architectural folly; telephone screens, mirrors, and the camera's eye are a window into Reiland's versions of biblical and mythological tales; bread figures embody uprising and rebellion in Slinko's large storyboard drawings; and Tr??ng's photos compose an archive of fragmented views of the Asian American activist movement in the United States.

Barbara Hammer - Company Gallery
Through November 26, 2017 - New York

Truant: Photographs, 1970 - 1979 Throughout the 1970s, filmmaker Barbara Hammer toured the United States, Africa, and Europe, making film after film about women and the lesbian experience, niether of which had seldom been seen by a woman, for women on screen before. She made a slew of now-legendary experimental films, including Sisters! (1973), Dyketactics (1974), Multiple Orgasm (1976), Sappho (1978), and Double Strength (1978), more or less inventing lesbian cinema at a time when such material had largely been relegated to the pornographic imagination of male artists and filmmakers. During this prolific period, Hammer photographed her travels, her lovers, moments of community and kinship between her collaborators on set, private and public performances, friends, strangers. In these photographs, most of which have never been exhibited before, Hammer's work explodes traditional notions of female sexuality by showing it for what it is: complex, messy, abstract, human. As a filmmaker, Hammer fused the non-linearity of Gertrude Stein and the poetic realism of Djuna Barnes to the early to mid-century American filmmaking experiments of Deren, Stan Brakhage, and Jonas Mekas. Her kal... (read more)

Michael Schmidt,Irene Shcherbakova, Eunhyue Shin, and Dave Weindorf. The eighteen artists featured present dynamic and often opposing points of view in their diverse bodies of work. Ancient and modern, bodily and geometric, unknown and earthly—the widely varying works in this exhibition propose a series of thoughtful contrasts. Through painting, drawing, sculpture, and mixed media, Metamorphosis employs a multiplicity of visual languages in an attempt to blur boundaries and realize the virtue of manifold perspectives. Via these powerful juxtapositions, the artists featured conjure possibilities for harmony despite difference. The result is a site of mutual transformation, in which disparate artists are united by their variance. Metamorphosis will open November 11th with an opening reception November 16, from 6-8 P...

María de Echevarría: Fields of Light and Color - Saint Peter's Church
Through December 10, 2017 - New York

Nature, once again, inspired the Argentinian painter María de Echevarría to create a set of abstract and semi-abstract landscapes, of which more than 20 are presented in this exhibit. "In all these paintings my aim is to convey my emotional response and artistic vision to the magnificent light and colors observed in fields, skies and water from dawn to sunset." María started painting in 1991. Since then, her art education has been the never-ending process that takes place mainly during the actual act of painting. There is also the study and direct observation of works by masters like Georgia O'Keeffe and Mark Rothko. She took classes at The Art Student League of New York and studied under the Peruvian painter Reynaldo Bisetti in New York. De Echevarría has shown her work extensively in and out of New York. Examples in New York are the one-artist exhibits at the United Nations Headquarters, the Living Room Gallery of Saint Peter's Church and the Consulate of Argentina. Galleries in SoHo and Chelsea have presented her work in individual and group shows as well.

Path to Citizenship - New York Historical Society
Through December 10, 2017 - New York

On view in the Patrica D. Klingenstein Library, New-York Historical explores what it means to be an American citizen through documents and manuscripts from its collection, as part of the CitizenshipProject. The U.S. Constitution, drafted in 1787, established a new nation. It also introduced national citizenship, the eligibility for which would be determined by Congress. The Naturalization Act of 1790 offered citizenship to "free white persons" who had resided in the country for at least two years and could prove they were of good character. Naturalization is the process through which someone becomes a citizen. Although eligibility for U.S. Citizenship has changed repeatedly since 1790, three aspects of naturalization have remained the same: the act of petitioning or applying for citizenship, taking an oath of allegiance to the United States, and receiving a document that certifies citizenship. Learn more about the documents on view. This exhibit was curated by Nina Nazionale, director of library operations and curator of printed collections.

Walter Asmus directed Waiting for Godot and worked with Samuel Beckett in Berlin in the 1970s, author Edna O'Brien and publisher John Calder made up his circle in London, and actor Lisa Dwan gave life to Not I as never before. These are some of the luminaries who made up a world of Beckett, both during his life, and after his passing. John Minihan captures their essence in black and white portraiture, including his iconic images of Beckett himself. In his artist talk "Beckett and the Wake," John remembers spending time with a playwright who was often a reluctant subject and rarely posed. John Minihan photographed volumes I and II of IAC's cultural exhibition To Love Two Countries, a celebration of the men and women who immigrated to the United States in the early half of the twentieth century. Culture Night is an annual public event in Ireland that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organizations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. This year we join by opening our gallery doors for a daytime opportunity to view Beckett and His World.

All the Queens Houses - The Architectural League of New York
Through December 15, 2017 - New York

Nikolas Gambaroff - The Kitchen
Through December 16, 2017 - New York

Nikolas Gambaroff takes novelist and playwright Karl Kraus's satirical, WWI-era masterpiece The Last Days of Mankind as a point of departure for his newest installation. In its time, Kraus's play offered an unrelenting critique of a popular discourse fueling bigotry and blind nationalism. Written in 213 scenes, the work was considered impossible to perform—"intended for a theater on Mars," as Kraus put it. Yet its dystopian leanings seem resonant in our day of click-bait and fake news, where language is torn from its grounding in truth and reality, dismantled by the distributive algorithms of communication platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Here Gambaroff interrogates the dissolution of language and with it, meaning, and investigates how art, often imbued with multifaceted meaning, should place itself in a time when nothing seems to mean anything at all. Curated by Tim Griffin.

Remains To Be Seen - Tillou Fine Art
Through December 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

JOHN SPINKS REMAINS TO BE SEEN OCTOBER 25 - DECEMBER 16, 2017 OPENING RECEPTION WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 6 - 9 PM SATURDAY SALON: MIMI THOMPSON IN CONVERSATION WITH JOHN SPINKS NOVEMBER 4, 4 - 7 PM TILLOU FINE ART will present REMAINS TO BE SEEN, a comprehensive solo presentation of painting, collages, and works on paper by Brooklyn-based artist JOHN SPINKS, opening October 25th 2017. In this exhibition, John Spinks explores the mutable relationship between what we see and what we know. The works can have a soft, tender dreaminess or a graphic mystery; sometimes they combine both. The letters, maps, and musical scores in REMAINS TO BE SEEN seems to guide the artist, and his allegiance to them gives the work its power. They merge in forms that celebrate the imperfect and come, in the artist’s words, “straight off the nervous system”.

Open (C)All: Truth - BRIC
Through December 17, 2017 - Brooklyn

Closed Mondays We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. ~ Pablo Picasso We live in an era when truth is under assault. In a time of alternative truths and truthiness, we ask that you show us your truth. What is real and true for you? BRIC's open call exhibitions—presented every other year in the Gallery of BRIC House—feature the work of over 125 artists and are open to all members of the BRIC Contemporary Artist Registry. BRIC's Registry is free and open to artists who were born, live, or work in Brooklyn.

War and Pieced: the Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics - American Folk Art Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York, in collaboration with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, University of Lincoln–Nebraska. Cocurated by Dr. Annette Gero, international quilt historian, author, and collector, and Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum. War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Once termed "Soldiers'" or "Convalescent Quilts," the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century. The exhibition further relates these military quilts to an earlier technique of pictorial inlaid or intarsia quilts, made with felted wools during the Prussian and Napoleonic wars beginning in the mid-eighteenth century. The visual virtuosity of the quilts, often incorporating many thousands of pieces no larger than one-inch square, assumes a deeper emotional r... (read more)

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times - New York Historical Society
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times is a new exhibition commemorating President John F. Kennedy's private life and public trajectory. One of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled, it brings together images from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives that capture public and private moments from Kennedy's life. Some of the photographs on display are iconic; others have rarely been seen. Kennedy's administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America. No single politician was photographed more than Kennedy—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946 and his fairy-tale wedding to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 to his run for the White House in 1960 and the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. Documentary photographers such as Ed Clark, Lisl Steiner, Ralph Crane, Philippe Halsman, Ted Spiegel Jacques Lowe, Lawrence Schiller, Steve Schapiro, and Sam Vestal captured the optimism and challenges of the early 1960s in some of the finest and most vivid images of the period.

Fernanda Mello: Mirror's Inhabitants - BRIC
Through January 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

Working primarily in painting and drawing, Fernanda Mello reinterprets folkloric culture she learned as a child growing up in Brazil. A self-taught artist, Mello derives her artistic inspiration from her studies of South American tribes and shamans of the Amazon region. In Mirror's Inhabitants, she catalogs the life of Davi Kopenawa, an important indigenous shaman from Brazil who advocated for rainforest conservation and indigenous rights in light of the arrival of gold miners and their diseases in his region. Fernanda Mello has exhibited at Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn; the Fort Tilden National Recreation Area; the Regents Canal Festival and The Brick Lane Gallery, both in London; Grand Palais, Paris; Galeria Olho d'Agua, Brasilia; and FilaAC, São Paulo. She is the recipient of an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and currently resides in Brooklyn.

DAVID HOCKNEY WORKS ON PAPER, 1961 – 2009 - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through January 13, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce David Hockney: Works on Paper, 1961 – 2009, the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery on view from November 9 to January 13 at 297 Tenth Avenue. The exhibition will present a selection of Hockney's recent East Yorkshire landscapes, as well as intimate portraits and set designs from as early as 1961 during his time as a student at the Royal College of Art. Hockney's interest in landscape and nature's cycles was ignited in recent years after returning in 1999 to East Yorkshire, England a lush area near his hometown of Bradford. In composing his landscapes, Hockney would continuously return to the same location in order to capture the gradual changes of seasons across a range of media. The exhibition will feature four charcoal on paper works including Hockney's Autumn Thixendale, October 19t , 2008, and Fresh Timber on Woldgate, 2008, that emphasize the soft, organic forms of the foliage in play with the seasonal weather, flanked against stark farming patterns of the Yorkshire countryside. Created at the outset of his career, Hockney's drawings from the 1960s and 70s capture the development of what would become his iconic and inven... (read more)

Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art - New York Historical Society
Through January 21, 2018 - Upper West Side

Ominous threats filled the years around World War II—Nazism, the escalating plight of European Jews, Fascism, Japanese militarism, and racism. Arthur Szyk, the great 20th-century activist in art, confronted the turbulent, hate-filled period with forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes' destructive and inhumane policies. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art explores the activism of the Polish-born artist through more than 40 politically incisive works that underscore Szyk's role as a kind of "one man army" fighting odious policies and protagonists and advocating civil and human rights. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts, with Irvin Ungar, project adviser. The book, Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art, is available from the NYHistory Store. Support for Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is provided by Shelley and Steven Einhorn, the David Berg Foundation, the Edward and Sandra Meyer Foundation, and Nancy and Morris W. Offit. Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, and the New York Sta... (read more)

Eddie Martinez Studio Wall - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2018 - Soho

Eddie Martinez's drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor's office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez's drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs. In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a "drawing wall," wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist's incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center's forthcoming exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, will bring the drawing wall to the museum. The artist will paper the gallery with thousands of sketches that he will change throughout the exhibition's run. In addition, several large drawings and paintings will be hung on top of these sketches allowing viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez's practice.

San Marco Quartet - 5 Manhattan West
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

Video Installation by David Rokeby; San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazza. Curated by Pari Nadimi. ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems. In the last deca... (read more)

Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence showcases hand-drawn and engraved maps from the 18th and early 19th centuries that illuminate the tremendous changes—geographic, political, and economic—that occurred before, during, and just after the Revolutionary War.

Hotbed - New York Historical Society
Through March 25, 2018 - New York

Hotbed explores the vibrant political and artistic scene of Greenwich Village in the early 20th century, where men and women joined forces across the boundaries of class and race to fight for a better world. At the heart of the downtown radicals' crusade lay women's rights: to control their own bodies, to do meaningful work, and above all, to vote. Immersive installations and more than 100 artifacts and images—drawn from New-York Historical's archives and several private collections—bring to life the bohemian scene and its energetic activist spirit. The exhibition is curated by Joanna Scutts, Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's History, and Sarah Gordon, Senior Postdoctoral Marie Zimmermann Legacy Fellow in Women's History, under the direction of Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History at the New-York Historical Society, and is on view in the Joyce B.

Displays feature such topics as the Cold War, the draft, military campaigns initiated by both sides, the growth of the antiwar movement, the role of the president, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition, explore themes of patriotism, duty, and citizenship through key objects, including a troopship berthing unit, vibrant antiwar posters, artwork by Vietnam vets, a Viet Cong bicycle, the Pentagon Papers, and historical film footage.
