Maribel Matthews - Agora Gallery
Through May 18, 2018 - New York

Spring Awakenings Maribel Matthews' illustrious oeuvre harmoniously captures the joy within the world that surrounds her. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, Matthews' paintings capture a variety of themes, including but not limited to idyllic landscape scenes, still lifes, portraiture, as well as abstract canvases. The artist's palette mirrors her Mediterranean background as bright, bold jewel tones adorn her compositions, inviting the viewer into her jubilant and festive domain. Crisp lines and thick, nearly impressionistic brushstrokes characterize the majority of Matthews' more naturalistic paintings, while her abstract works, unencumbered by the boundaries of line and shape, emanate a similar, joyful exuberance. In works such as Orchids, a vase full of the violet flowers rests upon a deep plum background. The orchids are composed of crisp lines, organic shapes and contrasted by their radiant, chartreuse leaves. They playfully present themselves to the viewer, some with agape, blossoming leaves, some bashfully hiding behind their counterparts. Bulbous, ripened peaches litter the foreground of the composition, enfolding among the flowers in a congenial promenade. Th... (read more)

Mary Heilmann: Painting Pictures - Dia Art Foundation
Through May 27, 2018 - New York,

In the early 1970s, Mary Heilmann began creating art that harnessed everyday domestic objects, repurposing them with a boldly hand-painted touch. Arriving in New York in the late 1960s, she was energized by the artists occupying the Minimal and Postminimal art scene. Heilmann's encounters with the work of artists closely associated with Dia's history, such as Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, made a significant impression while also delineating a clear difference between their practice and her approach. This exhibition at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton, New York, presents artworks that mark key milestones in Heilmann's practice. The presentation includes a selection of early paintings from the 1970s and 1980s when Heilmann began visiting the East End of Long Island. She eventually set up a studio in Bridgehampton, where all of her paintings and many of her ceramics have been made since 1999. Several recently finished works that have not been seen outside of her studio are included in this exhibition as well. Mary Heilmann: Painting Pictures at the Dan Flavin Art Institute is made possible by generous support from Carol and John Finley. Additional support is also prov... (read more)

Will technology, which is created and executed by mankind, ever completely control our natural surroundings?

Rita McBride: Particulates - Dia Art Foundation
Through June 02, 2018 - New York,

This new commission by Rita McBride, titled Particulates (2017), is inspired by time travel, the principles of light and space, and quantum physics. The materials of McBride's Particulates include water molecules, surfactant compounds, and the beams of high-intensity lasers. Her use of light as a sculptural medium marks a departure for the artist who has explored the tension between architectural and sculptural form in her extensive oeuvre since the mid-1980s. Particulates exchanges gravity, a core element in sculpture, for the potential of infinitely traversable space. It unfolds a wrinkle in time.

Accessories The Show - Jacob K. Javits Convention Center
Through June 12, 2018 - New York

The Great Leap - Atlantic Theater Company Stage 2
Through June 17, 2018 - New York

San Francisco, spring 1989. Manford Lum, locally renowned on the sidewalk basketball courts of Chinatown, talks his way onto a college team, just before they travel to Beijing for a "friendship" game. When they arrive, China is in the throes of the post-Cultural Revolution era, and Manford must juggle international politics and his own personal history. Inspired by events from her father's life and (short-lived) basketball career, playwright Lauren Yee (The Hatmaker's Wife) makes her Atlantic debut with this tender and sharp-paced play. "Trask's songs have everything: melody, swagger, piano, wit, electric guitar, harmony, fun, angst, a little filth. The band, [Yanowitz & co], combine the look of old-school glam and punk with the one thing the genre currently lacks: youth." – The New Yorker

Tommy Hartung: R.U.R. - C24 Gallery
Through June 23, 2018 - New York

C24 Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by artist Tommy Hartung, marking his inaugural exhibition with the gallery. R.U.R will be on view from May 4 through June 23, 2018 at 560 West 24th Street, with an opening reception on Friday May 4 from 6 – 8 pm. R.U.R., which stands for Rossum's Universal Robots, presents a series of new, interactive video installations based on Karel Kapek's 1920 science fiction play of the same name in which the term "robot" was first used. The play explores the speed of technological progress and the uncertainties and dehumanization that occurs as a result of the robotization of human interactions. In Hartung's adaptation, the original play is re-written through photographs, costumes and interactive videos that pose the question: Why do men want to create robots that look human? Tommy Hartung's works analyze the creation and dissemination of cultural narratives by fragmenting and deconstructing his source material. Through the montages of stop motion animation and found footage, Hartung uses the themes of modernism as his subject matter. His sculptures, the subjects of his videos, are assembled through scavenged material to form hybri... (read more)

AMNH to Open Amazon Adventure in 3D Digital March 9 - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 13, 2018 - New York

Amazon Adventure traces the extraordinary journey of 19th-century naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates—the most influential scientist you’ve never heard of—who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance, and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into his fascinating study of animal mimicry, the phenomenon in which one animal adopts the look of another. Filmed on location, Amazon Adventure plunges audiences into a wild world of breathtaking beauty and captivating animals, including an array of nature’s masters of mimicry. Painstakingly researched for three years, the film enlisted the expertise of more than 100 scientists and historical advisers. The team’s commitment to authenticity not only resulted in this rigorous re-creation, even using actual instruments and tools from the 1850s, but the writing team also incorporated many of Bates’ own words, as he was a gifted stor...
