Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a subst... (read more)

The Chinese Lives of Uli Sigg - Asia Society
October 10, 2017 - Upper East Side

Art world sensation Ai Weiwei credits him with launching his international career. Renowned pianist Lang Lang describes him as a mentor to Chinese artists. Curator Victoria Lu believes that his taste and influence as a collector has been felt around the world. But when Swiss businessman Uli Sigg first went to China, art was far from his mind. The year was 1979, and Sigg — working for the Schindler escalator and elevator company — was hoping to set up one of the first joint ventures between the Chinese government, seeking international investment in the post-Mao era, and a Western company. Uli Sigg is not a man who does things by halves. "My ego, my way" says a t-shirt he wears at one point in the film. When he took up rowing, he went to the world championships. When he negotiated a joint venture, he wanted to create a model for future partnerships. And when he became interested in Chinese art, he built a world-class personal collection. Sigg championed the artists he admired, working tirelessly for their international recognition and to preserve their artwork as a record of China's tumultuous and historic changes. Eventually, Sigg became the Swiss ambassador to China and a cons... (read more)

Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Jay Campbell - Park Avenue Armory
Through October 10, 2017 - Upper East Side

there is astonishing artistry to complement her creativity. She plays most of the time barefoot onstage. Her body and her instrument and the music she makes all seem one. She is ever thrilling alive to the moment." — Los Angeles Times Born into a Moldavian family of musicians, violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja is a bundle of energy known as much for the passion and virtuosity of her playing as for the fact that she often performs barefoot. Despite the fact that the classical music world has dubbed her the "wild child" of the violin—or, perhaps, because of it—she has been steadily performing concerts around the world and garnering praise for her charm, charisma, and an expressiveness likened to that of a stage actor's. The natural phenomenon comes to the Board of Officers Room with cellist Jay Campbell to perform duos from a wide ranging repertoire that perfectly showcases the pair's extreme styles of music making, from the early music of Gibbons to classical works by Ravel and contemporary compositions by Xenakis, Ligeti, and a world premiere by Michael Hersch.

Enhancing America's Reservoir of Goodwill in Southeast Asia - Asia Society
October 11, 2017 - Upper East Side

2017 marks the 40th anniversary of U.S.-ASEAN relations, but the countries that make up the dynamic, stable, and increasingly wealthy ASEAN alliance share anxieties over the possibility of U.S. disengagement from the region. There is diminishing confidence in a sustained American commitment to ASEAN, even as both sides maintain strong economic ties — the U.S. is the largest source of investment for ASEAN, and ASEAN is the United States' fourth largest trading partner. This comes at a time when China's influence and activism in the region is growing. Join us for a discussion with Professor Kishore Mahbubani and Daniel Russel on how the U.S. — an architect and guarantor of the post-World War II global order — can restore its global standing by reversing the perception of disengagement from the Asia-Pacific region. Kishore Mahbubani is Dean and Professor in the Practice of Public Policy of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. Prior to his current position he served in Singapore's Foreign service for over 30 years, and has twice served as Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Singapore to the United Nations.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

Set in a present-day Paris caught between violent unrest and its well-known glories, Helprin's latest novel vividly depicts the famed city in its tumultuous present and how it can uniquely shape a life in unexpected ways. In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.

Exhibition Punk Troubles : Northern Ireland - The American Irish Historical Society
Through October 13, 2017 - New York

The exhibition PUNK TROUBLES: NORTHERN IRELAND at the American Irish Historical Society curated by punk historian Toby Mott with a catalogue of the same title published by Dashwood Books designed by Jamie Andrew Reid, examines the subject of N.I. punk in the context of sectarianism. The arrival of Punk in Northern Ireland offered young people, Catholic and Protestant alike, a brief respite from three decades of devastating civil war. Set against a backdrop of car bombs, hunger strikes, security checks, murder and random acts of violence the N.I. punk scene became, fleetingly, a neutral space, a ceasefire of sorts where the young and suppressed regardless of their religous persuasion came together to create their own D.I.Y. culture encompassing Music, clothing, writing and importantly, an attitude. It was a collective of Catholic and Protestant working class youth who eschewed violence to embrace a creative way of life which provided an alternative to the grey and frightening setting of what was commonly referred to by one and all as, 'The Troubles'.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.
