Safe. 1995. Written and directed by Todd Haynes - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 12, 2017 - New York

Planet of the Vampires. 1965. Directed by Mario Bava - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 12, 2017 - New York

Planet of the Vampires. 1965. Italy . Directed by Mario Bava. DCP. 88 min. "Visionary Italian filmmaker Maria Bava was always a favorite of the cineastes at Club 57, because he could make something stylish out of very little (one of the club's own aesthetics). The plot of Planet of the Vampires sounds like a Euro mash-up of Alien and Night of the Living Dead: astronauts of the future go part-time nuts and become killer zombies. But come for the Bava visuals. From Blumhouse.com: 'Bava's in fine form as he pulls out all of his magician's tricks. [He] shoots entirely on cleverly designed sound stages…minimal and colorful, resembling the garish look of pulp magazines and 1960s comic books. Elaborate set pieces…were not constructed full size. Amazingly, the live action actors move seamlessly within the imaginative, expressionistic sets.'" (film notes by John Epperson).

The Gore Gore Girls. 1972. Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 12, 2017 - New York

The Gore Gore Girls. 1972. USA. Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. DCP. 81 min. "Although Herschell Gordon Lewis did make three more films between 2002 and 2017, The Gore Gore Girls in 1972 was the end of his most, shall we say…productive period. Although a purveyor of 'nudie cuties,' Lewis was known as The Godfather of Gore. The promotional materials for his films—and the movies themselves, with titles such as Color Me Blood Red and Two Thousand Maniacs!—tormented young people across the South beginning with Blood Feast in 1963. The torment was removed by laughing at the films at Club 57. And Lewis laughed too; he showed up at the club for his first public speaking appearance! The Gore Gore Girls is about, you guessed it, go-go girls at Henny Youngman's nightclub who are brutally murdered in Henny-color. The Gore Gore Girls was the only film Lewis submitted to the MPAA, and of course it was slapped with an X rating. John Waters famously worships Herschell Gordon Lewis—and you should too. Just don't tell Gloria Steinem. DVDinfatuation.com says: 'Ranking right up there with Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs!, and The Wizard of Gore as one of Lewis's best films, The Gore Gore Gir...

Mariinsky Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
November 14, 2017 - New York City

Sumptuous orchestration, pianistic pyrotechnics, and acerbic wit highlight an evening of Russian music that spans the Imperial and Soviet eras. Scriabin's obsession with mysticism and sensory stimulation form the core of his lushly scored Symphony No. 3, "The Divine Poem." Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 offers its share of dazzling orchestration and a taxing role for the pianist. Soviet authorities expected grandiose display in the tradition of other famous ninth symphonies, but Shostakovich instead juxtaposed the tragic and comic, including a breathlessly giddy finale, in his post-war work.

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:

TYLER PERRY INTRODUCES AND DISCUSSES HIS NEW BOOK, HIGHER IS WAITING. An intimate book of inspiration by one of the great cultural icons of our time Higher Is Waiting is a spiritual guidebook, a collection of teachings culled from the experiences of a lifetime, meant to inspire readers to climb higher in their own lives and pull themselves up to a better, more fulfilling place. In this intimate book, Tyler Perry writes of how his faith has sustained him in hard times, centered him in good times, and enriched his life. Beginning with his earliest memories of growing up a shy boy in New Orleans, Perry recalls the moments of grace and beauty in a childhood marked by brutality, deprivation, and fear. With tenderness he sketches portraits of the people who sustained him and taught him indelible lessons about integrity, trust in God, and the power of forgiveness: his aunt Mae, who cared for her grandfather, who was born a slave, and sewed quilts that told a story of generations; Mr. Butler, a blind man of remarkable dignity and elegance, who sold penny candies on a street corner; and his beloved mother, Maxine, who endured abuse, financial hardship, and the daily injustices of grow...

Daniil Trifonov made his Carnegie Hall debut in a performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. He reunites with them for another composer's first concerto—his own. Trifonov's Piano Concerto has pianistic flash, but also introspection and great tenderness. Prokofiev's Symphony No. 6 looks inward too—especially in the anguished central Largo—but also excites with powerful outer movements. Strauss's Don Juan is pure excitement: Sumptuously scored, brilliantly melodic, it's the tone poem that propelled him to the front rank of composers.

The Big Lebowski. 1998. Directed by Joel Coen - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 15, 2017 - New York

The Big Lebowski. 1998. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. With Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi. 35mm. 117 min. When Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski gets mistaken for a millionaire with the same name, his ramshackle apartment gets busted into by some thugs and one of his rugs gets ruined by some ungentlemanly behavior. Not that the rug was all that great to begin with— it's the principle of the matter that fuels The Dude's quest for justice. With a wrap sweater, overgrown, bleached-out hair, jelly sandals, and a White Russian in hand, Jeff Bridges shines in the role of a lifetime.

Get Out. 2017. Directed by Jordan Peele - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 15, 2017 - New York

Get Out. 2017. USA. Directed by Jordan Peele. DCP. 104 min. Having developed the film before the results of the 2016 election were known, director Jordon Peele didn't necessarily intend for his debut feature to resonate in the viscerally contemporary ways it does. Though it was promoted as a horror film, its true terror lies in the mirror it holds up to latent liberal racism and cultural appropriation. Set in locales that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's visited 21st-century Manhattan or Connecticut, Get Out's creeping dread feels very close to home. Vividly entertaining and urgently relevant, it may well be the defining film of our times. Courtesy of Universal Pictures.

November 16, 2017 - New York

The Wizard of Gore. 1970. USA . Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. With Ray Sager, Judy Cler, Wayne Ratay. DCP. 95 min. Director H. G. Lewis visited the basement club in 1981 (not long after his release from prison) as a guest of the Gore Gazette to present his celebration of bloodlust, an explicit rejection of middle-class good taste that also manifested the bod-mod and gender reassignment motifs that united much of Club 57's programming. This gruesome tale, about a magician whose performances involve the mutilation and gory deaths of his human subjects, is the kind of horror fare produced for the exploitation market in the 1970s and '80s—which has since become a mainstream genre.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - PlayStation Theater
November 17, 2017 - New York

The Stooges, the Ramones, Einstürzende Neubauten, The Shangri-Las: an eclectic range of influences for sure, and one that inspired brothers Jim and William Reid as The Jesus and Mary Chain emerged from Lanarkshire, Scotland, to become one of the most influential bands of their era. What followed was a rush of creativity and controversy in which the power of their music – most strikingly the landmark debut 'Psychocandy' – was matched by the volatility of their relationship. Their journey sparked a wider influence. Not only did their success help Alan McGee's Creation Records to flourish into the home of Britain's most critically acclaimed bands from My Bloody Valentine to Oasis to Super Furry Animals, but early drummer Bobby Gillespie made history of his own with Primal Scream.

The Man Who Wasn't There. 2001. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. With Billy Bob Thornton, Frances McDormand, Michael Badalucco. 35mm. 116 min. Ed and Doris, the sort of couple you see in a restaurant who don't speak or make eye contact, are angry, trapped, and about to burst, but polite convention keeps the fury tamped down. Until Ed gets gets pulled into a get-rich-quick scheme—and something very bad happens. Shot in a gorgeously crisp black-and-white, The Man Who Wasn't There is a deceptively complicated film hidden in a familiar film noir formula.

But when Molly becomes the target of an FBI investigation, her former clients are nowhere to be found. With her lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba) as her only ally, will she still support them?"

Dawson City: Frozen Time. 2016. Directed by Bill Morrison - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 18, 2017 - New York

Dawson City: Frozen Time. 2016. USA. Directed by Bill Morrison. 35mm. 120 min. The confluence of a gold rush in the Yukon and the birth of cinema in the waning days of the 19th century form the basis for this masterful, revelatory film, which uses film footage that was long feared lost to tell these interconnecting stories. When Dawson City swelled to more than 40,000 inhabitants in a matter of a few months following the initial gold strike, along came hotels, gambling halls, and saloons, as well as a movie theater. Because Dawson City was at the end of the film distribution chain, distributors instructed their Yukon clients to dispose of the film reels rather than returning them. Eventually, the films were buried in an unused swimming pool and covered over. In 1978, when a construction project required the demolition of the pool, a treasury of films from the 1910s through the 1920s was found, remarkably preserved in the subterranean permafrost. With a keen eye toward storytelling and the preservation of history, filmmaker Bill Morrison weaves an intricate feature from the salvaged frames. Featuring an original score by Alex Somers, Dawson City: Frozen Time is both the fortuitou... (read more)

Manos: The Hands of Fate. 1966. Directed by Harold P. Warren - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 18, 2017 - New York

Manos: The Hands of Fate. 1966. USA. Directed by Harold P. Warren. DCP. 70 min. "This may indeed be one of the most inept films ever made. But it points toward some other disturbing horror films that became classics of the genre: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House on the Left, and all of their many derivations. In Manos, a family is tormented by a heathen group of bizarre characters. The exposing of the Manson 'family' came three years later. Many of the Club 57 members were impressionable teens when the Manson murders took place. Ten years after, at the basement club in the East Village, mocking a questionably tasteless film about 'family vs. family' could have been a way of purging the fears. From DVDDrive-In.com: 'Performances, camerawork, lighting, and editing are awful at best, but what most viewers might finally be able to appreciate about this film is its eerie otherworldly quality. It does succeed in disorienting the viewer…reminiscent of the later Texas Chainsaw Massacre.'" (film notes by John Epperson).

Objects in Motion - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 18, 2017 - New York

Ballet Robotique. 1983. USA. Directed by Bob Rogers. 8 min. Documentary footage of computerized robots working on an automobile assembly line is choreographed to look like a dance. Each of the movements in this mechanical ballet is dramatized by a different musical excerpt from the work of Bizet, Delibes, and Tchaikovsky. A Chairy Tale. 1957. Canada. Directed by Norman McLaren and Claude Jutra. 10 min. This wordless black-and-white film dramatizes an amusing encounter between a man and a chair. One of the great classics for children, this film is notable for its simple story and music by Ravi Shankar. A Small Escape. 2016. Sweden. Directed by David Sandell. 3 min. A pair of scissors escapes from a kitchen, then connects with other everyday objects to transform into a bird and flies away. The Music Box. 2010. USA. Directed by Jennifer Oxley and Nicholas Oxley. 3 min. In a New York City apartment, a little girl is trying to open an antique wooden box. Unfortunately the box is stuck, but the little girl has an idea. The Big Race. 2004. USA/Madagascar. Directed by Phil Aupperle. 6 min.

mother! 2017. Directed by Darren Aronofsky - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 19, 2017 - New York

mother! 2017. USA. Directed by Darren Aronofsky. DCP. 121 min. The year's most divisive film is not here to please. Jennifer Lawrence, in a tour-de-force performance, plays a young wife being dragged through hell as uninvited guests invade her home and destroy the paradise she has painstakingly renovated. Her narcissistic, insensitive husband (Javier Bardem) welcomes these loathsome strangers because they adore his poetry. Trapping Lawrence in a tight close-up half the time, the film confines both the tragic heroine and the audience to an inescapable inferno in full assault mode. Laden with biblical allusions, mother! can also be read as an allegory for environmental destruction, a surrealist horror tale, a psychological thriller, a wicked comedy, or simply a tale of domestic abuse. It's all up to you—if you dare take the ride. Courtesy of Paramount Pictures.

The Wizard of Gore. 1970. Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
November 19, 2017 - New York

The Wizard of Gore. 1970. USA . Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. With Ray Sager, Judy Cler, Wayne Ratay. DCP. 95 min. Director H. G. Lewis visited the basement club in 1981 (not long after his release from prison) as a guest of the Gore Gazette to present his celebration of bloodlust, an explicit rejection of middle-class good taste that also manifested the bod-mod and gender reassignment motifs that united much of Club 57's programming. This gruesome tale, about a magician whose performances involve the mutilation and gory deaths of his human subjects, is the kind of horror fare produced for the exploitation market in the 1970s and '80s—which has since become a mainstream genre.

Tommy quickly becomes smitten with the headstrong Fiona MacLaren (Kelli O'Hara) and makes an enemy of the rebellious Harry Beaton (Robert Fairchild), bringing about a chain of events that could spell doom for the entire town. City Center is delighted to bring Brigadoon out of the Highland mists for its 70th anniversary, in a concert production directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon.

China Crisis - Iridium
Through December 07, 2017 - NY

China Crisis are an English pop/rock band. They formed in 1979 in Kirkby, near Liverpool, Merseyside with a core of vocalist/keyboardist Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon. Their output was pop music similar in style to that of New Wave but with strong similarities to the post-punk movement of the early 1980s, namely inclusion of a broader range of musical influences and occasional flirtation with political commentary. Throughout their career, China Crisis has seen moderate success in the United Kingdom with ten hit singles between August 1982 and January 1987 and six albums, as well as commercial success in Western Europe, Australia and the Americas. Sharing an affection for Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, David Bowie, and Brian Eno, Daly and Lundon played with various Knowsley post-punk groups. Daly then spent time tinkering with synthesizers and a drum machine. Along with Lundon, Daly began writing songs. The pair eventually asked drummer and percussionist Dave Reilly to join them, and in 1982 they released their debut single "African and White" as China Crisis on the independent record label, Inevitable. In June 1982, they supported the former Television guitarist, Tom Verlaine... (read more)

John Minihan: Beckett and His World - Irish Arts Center
Through December 15, 2017 - New York

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.

Stanley Jordan - Iridium
Through December 17, 2017 - NY

In a career that took flight in 1985 with commercial and critical acclaim, guitar virtuoso Stanley Jordan has consistently displayed a chameleonic musical persona of openness, imagination, versatility and maverick daring. Be it bold reinventions of classical masterpieces or soulful explorations through pop-rock hits, to blazing straight ahead jazz forays and ultramodern improvisational works—solo or with a group—Jordan can always be counted on to take listeners on breathless journeys into the unexpected. Key to Jordan's fast-track acclaim was his mastery of a special technique on the guitar's fretboard. Instead of conventional strumming and picking, Jordan's innovative "touch technique" is an advanced form of two-handed tapping. While a handful of other players were using similar techniques, Stanley's fluid, multi-layered textures and sheer virtuosity raised the bar for excellence. But his technique, though impressive, is always a means to a musical end. His music is imbued with a warmth and sensitivity that has captured the imagination of listeners worldwide. A classically trained pianist before playing guitar, Jordan wanted greater freedom in voicing chords on his guitar, so h... (read more)

Max Ernst: Beyond Painting - The Museum of Modern Art
Through January 01, 2018 -

This exhibition surveys the career of the preeminent Dada and Surrealist artist Max Ernst (French and American, born Germany. 1891–1976), with particular emphasis on his ceaseless experimentation. Ernst began his pursuit of radical new techniques that went "beyond painting" to articulate the irrational and unexplainable in the wake of World War I, continuing through the advent and aftermath of World War II. Featuring approximately 100 works drawn from the Museum's collection, the exhibition includes paintings that challenged material and compositional conventions; collages and overpaintings utilizing found printed reproductions; frottages (rubbings); illustrated books and collage novels; sculptures of painted stone and bronze; and prints made using a range of techniques. Several major, multipart projects represent key moments in Ernst's long career, ranging from early Dada and Surrealist portfolios of the late 1910s and 1920s to his late masterpiece—a recent acquisition to MoMA's collection—65 Maximiliana, ou l'exercice illégale de l'astronomie (1964). This illustrated book comprises 34 aquatints complemented by imaginative typographic designs and a secret hieroglyphic script of th... (read more)

Charles White—Leonardo da Vinci. Curated by David Hammons - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 01, 2018 - New York

Charles White (1918–1979) taught drawing in Los Angeles from the mid-1960s until the end of his life, and mentored a generation of students. Among them is David Hammons (American, born 1943), who studied with White early in his career. This exhibition, curated by Hammons, includes White's monumental work Black Pope (Sandwich Board Man)(1973), from The Museum of Modern Art's collection, and a brush and ink drawing on blue prepared paper by the Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, lent by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from the British Royal Collection. Created over 450 years apart, the two works share formal similarities and reveal a devotion to drawing by both artists, linking their lasting influence on future generations. White and Leonardo also shared a more personal connection: both were born in the first half of April. With this in mind, Hammons commissioned Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal to read both artists' natal charts, also on view in the exhibition and discussed by Ullal on the accompanying audio guide. By presenting their destinies as written in the stars, Hammons shifts our attention from the gallery to the galaxy and asks us to consider commonalities between the... (read more)

The Contenders 2017 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 12, 2018 - New York

Every year there are films that resonate far beyond a theatrical release—if they manage to find their way to a commercial screen at all—or film festival appearance. Their significance can be attributed to a variety of factors, from structure to subject matter to language, but these films are united in their lasting impact on the cinematic art form. For this annual series, the Department of Film combs through major studio releases and the top film festivals in the world, selecting influential, innovative films made in the past 12 months that we believe will stand the test of time. Whether bound for awards glory or destined to become a cult classic, each of these films is a contender for lasting historical significance, and any true cinephile will want to catch them on the big screen.

Cherry Poppin' Daddies - Iridium
Through January 14, 2018 - NY

Ever since they first formed some 25 years ago, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies made it their mission to veer from genre to genre across the musical map, choosing to follow their own muse regardless of feedback from fans and critics alike. Truth be told, individuality and defiance have always been part of the band's DNA, and have, in turn, reinforced their rebellious reputation. Granted, though that image is well deserved, the ability to bend the boundaries has been simultaneously tempered and informed by an adherence to an older, now vanished tradition, grounded in Tin Pan Alley, Swing music and the great American songbook. According to the band's longtime leader, singer/songwriter Steve Perry, the band's mantra has remained the same – "the obstacle is the path", that is, to pursue unexpected and difficult avenues that challenge both themselves as artists and modern sensibilities while at the same time adhering to standards and erstwhile traditions of American popular song. To that point, the band's new opus titled Please Return the Evening: The Cherry Poppin' Daddies Salute the Music of the Rat Pack – was designed as a challenge to their craftsmanship in the recording studio, at...

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). Bourgeois's printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,200 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum's Marron Atrium. The artist's creative process is the organizing principle behind the exhibition. Over the course of her career, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime. Also, she said there was no "rivalry" between the mediums in which she worked, noting that "they say the same thing in different ways." Here, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings, and within thematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture, the body, and nature, as well as investigation...

Items: Is Fashion Modern? - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi's 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology. The Items: Is Fashion Modern? exhibition catalogue, by Paola Antonelli and Michelle Millar Fisher, is available now.

Kasim Sulton's Utopia - Iridium
Through February 03, 2018 - NY

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kasim Sulton will be honoring his longtime association with the ground breaking progressive rock band Utopia and their legacy by performing a show consisting entirely of Utopia music with a full band. The set list will be comprised of songs hand-picked by Sulton, spanning the 10 albums he appears on, including deep cuts as well as many more familiar songs. "My career began with Utopia, says Sulton. "I can't think of a better way to honor my work with Todd, Roger, and Willie than to do a handful of shows that celebrate the special and unique music we created together." Utopia was initially formed in 1973 with somewhat of a fluid membership, and by mid-1976 settled into a stable quartet of Todd Rundgren (guitar, vocals), Kasim Sulton (bass, vocals), Roger Powell (keyboards, vocals), and Willie Wilcox (drums, vocals). All four band members wrote, sang, produced, and even engineered material for the band. Sulton wrote and sang lead on Utopia's biggest hit, "Set Me Free," from their best-selling album Adventures in Utopia (1980), which peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Top 40 charts in the U.S. BAND LINE-UP: Kasim Sulton – Bass a...

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of inte...

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art
Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, ...

Stephen Shore - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through May 28, 2018 - New York

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist's work of the last five decades, during which he has conducted a continual, restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms. One of the most significant photographers of our time, Stephen Shore (American, b. 1947) has often been considered alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography, digital printing, and social media. The artist's first survey in New York to include his entire career, this exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore's work, and demonstrate his singular vision—defined by an interest in daily life, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches, a strong intellectual underpinning, a restrained style, sly hum...

From the Collection: Artists at Mid to Late Career - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through November 04, 2018 - New York

This presentation in the Museum's fourth-floor collection galleries will focus exclusively on works made by artists in their mid to late careers. Spanning from the late 1960s to today, the installation chronicles the many years of sustained experimentation, daring invention, and thoughtful reconsideration that distinguish an individual artist's career long after his or her breakthrough moment. Highlighting lesser-known works by prominent artists and key works by some less familiar names, Artists at Mid to Late Career provides another view of the history of art over the last half century. All works are drawn from MoMA's collection, and includes examples by Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Maria Lassnig, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O'Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, and many others.
