Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture - The Frick Collection
Through April 21, 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 April 21, 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.

D. Watkins and Yahdon Israel on the 2nd Floor - Strand Book Store
April 23, 2019 - New York

Join us on the second floor as writer Salon columnist D. Watkins sits down with writer and host Yahdon Israel to share his new book! While author D. Watkins is pleased about the number of books exploring issues of race that are being published, there's one crucial aspect of contemporary black life that doesn't get enough attention: the hood. The Baltimore native knows firsthand what it means to live in poverty, where violence and drugs are inescapable. As he sees it, the perspective of people who live in poor black communities is largely absent from the work of many of the top intellectuals who speak and write about race. Now, D. Watkins is here to tell his truth. Built upon Watkins's own experiences, We Speak for Ourselves eases us into the bigger conversation about race and the various issues affecting poor black neighborhoods in America. Unapologetic and eye-opening, We Speak for Ourselves identifies and addresses a range of issues affecting these low-income communities?such as the trouble with misrepresentation and why we need more than one black voice?and sheds light on the harsh realities of daily life. Additionally, Watkins examines various crucial activist movements, incl... (read more)

Leanne Shapton Presents Guestbook: Ghost Stories - Books are Magic
April 24, 2019 - Cobble Hill

What haunts us? What can't we let go of? A tennis prodigy collapses after his wins, crediting them to an invisible, not entirely benevolent presence. A series of ghosts appear at their former bedsides, some distraught, some fascinated, to witness their unfamiliar occupants. A woman returns from a visit to Alcatraz with an uncomfortable feeling. The spirit of a prisoner has attached himself to you, a friend tells her. He sensed the empathy you had for those men. In more than two dozen stories and vignettes accompanied by an evocative curiosity cabinet of artifacts and images?found photographs, original paintings, Instagram-style portraits?Guestbook beckons us through the glimmering, unsettling evidence that marks our paths through life. Leanne Shapton is an artist and author of several books, including Swimming Studies (winner of the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography), Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, and a coauthor of the New York Times-bestselling Women in Clothes.

Brenda Shaughnessy: The Octopus Museum W/ Evan James - Books are Magic
April 26, 2019 - Cobble Hill

This collection of bold and scathingly beautiful feminist poems imagines what comes after our current age of environmental destruction, racism, sexism, and divisive politics. Informed by Brenda Shaughnessy's craft as a poet and her worst fears as a mother, the poems in The Octopus Museum blaze forth from her pen: in these pages, we see that what was once a generalized fear for our children (car accidents, falling from a tree) is now hyper-reasonable, specific, and multiple: school shootings, nuclear attack, loss of health care, a polluted planet. As Shaughnessy conjures our potential future, she movingly (and often with humor) envisions an age where cephalopods might rule over humankind, a fate she suggests we may just deserve after destroying their oceans. These heartbreaking, terrified poems are the battle cry of a woman who is fighting for the survival of the world she loves, and a stirring exhibition of who we are as a civilization. Brenda Shaughnessy was born in Okinawa, Japan, and grew up in Southern California. She is the author of four books of poetry, including So Much Synth, Human Dark with Sugar--winner of the James Laughlin Award and finalist for the National Book Cri... (read more)

Storytime with Shira Erlichman: Be/Hold - Books are Magic
April 27, 2019 - Cobble Hill

In Be/Hold: A Friendship Book visual artist, poet, and musician Shira Erlichman opens with the line, "Sweetheart, sometimes when I'm feeling blue I put my ear to the wind & listen for you," building a one-of-a-kind story of friendship from her love of compound words (i.e. toothbrush, windbreaker, behold) in a book that uplifts, encourages, and honors the people we care about most.

Painting Compilation Exhibiting At Chase Contemporary Gallery April 4th ? 28th In New York City Stanley Casselman & Hallie Hart will be presenting their ?Two Doors Down? exhibition at Chase Contemporary Gallery (521 W 23rd Street / New York, NY) opening April 4th and ending on April 28th. Stanley Casselman?s ?Liquid? paintings specifically are acrylic on polyester screen and then sprayed with silver nitrate. The process of applying the silver nitrate is called spray chrome. Silver nitrate is what's on the back of a mirror. The influence for using the process came from two other artists, Jason Martin and Anselm Reyle who've been incorporating it into their practices for about half a dozen years. ?My practice is process based. I embrace accident, random occurrence and I'm far more interested in what 'we' as humanity don't know vs. what we already do. I like to think of it as the leading edge of knowledge, the known vs. the unknown. And specifically to my practice I'm interested in what's visually new, what hasn't been done before and more importantly where the experience of color, line and form can take the viewer,? said Stanley Casselman ?In my ...

Steve Israel: Big Guns - Strand Book Store
May 02, 2019 - New York

When Chicago's Mayor Michael Rodriguez starts a national campaign to ban handguns from America's cities, towns, and villages, Otis Cogsworth, the wealthy chairman and CEO of Cogsworth International Arms worries about the effects on his company. In response he and lobbyist Sunny McCarthy convince an Arkansas congressman to introduce federal legislation mandating that every American must own a firearm. Events soon escalate. Asabogue's Mayor Lois Leibowitz passes an ordinance to ban guns in the town?right in Otis Cogsworth's backyard. Otis retaliates by orchestrating a recall election against Lois and Jack Steele, a rich town resident, runs against her. Even though the election is for the mayor of a village on Long Island, Steele brings in the big guns of American politics to defeat Lois: political consultants, Super PACs, and celebrities. Soon, thousands of pro-gun and anti-gun partisans descend on Asabogue, along with an assortment of heavily armed rightwing militias and the national news media. Bucolic Asabogue becomes a tinderbox. Meanwhile, Washington politicians in both parties are caught between a mighty gun lobby whose support they need for reelection and the absurdity of req... (read more)

Jayson Greene: Once More We Saw Stars - Books are Magic
May 13, 2019 - Cobble Hill

As the book opens: two-year-old Greta Greene is sitting with her grandmother on a park bench on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A brick crumbles from a windowsill overhead, striking her unconscious, and she is immediately rushed to the hospital. But although it begins with this event and with the anguish Jayson and his wife, Stacy, confront in the wake of their daughter's trauma and the hours leading up to her death, Once More We Saw Stars quickly becomes a narrative that is as much about hope and healing as it is about grief and loss. Jayson recognizes, even in the midst of his ordeal, that there will be a life for him beyond it?that if only he can continue moving forward, from one moment to the next, he will survive what seems unsurvivable. With raw honesty, deep emotion, and exquisite tenderness, he captures both the fragility of life and absoluteness of death, and most important of all, the unconquerable power of love. This is an unforgettable memoir of courage and transformation?and a book that will change the way you look at the world. Jayson Greene is a contributing writer and former senior editor at Pitchfork. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Grantland, an... (read more)

This unique exhibition presents married couple, Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby?s work side-by-side highlighting their individual and mutual interests in the ties that bind generations in the black community. Textiles play a large role in these recent bodies of work, as they have in the histories of the black community in America. From the cotton picked in southern plantations to the intricate patchwork quilts made from scraps of old clothes, there?s resilience and resourcefulness that is woven into the threads of black history in the United States. Letitia presents work from her series ?40 Acres...Gumbo Ya Ya,? referencing the unfulfilled promise of land to formerly enslaved individuals in post-civil-war America, and the Cajun phrase meaning everybody is talking at once. She stretches images of rural Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas printed on fabric over embroidery hoops, referencing domestic work and handmaid heirlooms which cultivate sentimental value over generations instead ...

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.

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)

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.
