ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Isamu Noguchi - The Noguchi Museum - January 8th, 2015 - May 31st, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">As part of his extended tour to investigate people's daily interaction with civic spaces and sacred sites throughout Europe, Asia, and the Far East, Isamu Noguchi first traveled to Northern India in 1949. Camera in hand, Noguchi discovered the eighteenth-century astronomical observatories in Delhi and Jaipur. Known as Jantar Mantar (translating loosely to "instruments and formulae"), these open-air campuses were comprised of astronomical instruments built on a grand architectural scale. Individual structures measured solar time, the celestial paths of the sun and moon and the latitudes and longitudes of planets and constellations, among other functions.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition, the first in a series focusing on Noguchi's photographs, will feature a selection from Noguchi's visits to the observatories between 1949 and 1960, a number of which were published contemporaneously in prestigious periodicals. A handful of objects related to Noguchi's interest in linking mankind and its rituals to the cosmos will also be on display, among them his <em>Skyviewing Sculpture</em> for Western Washington University and <em>Sky Gate</em> in Honolulu.</p> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:48:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Maria Blaisse - The Noguchi Museum - December 7th 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">For a month this winter, The Noguchi Museum presents Maria Blaisse's&nbsp;<em>Breathing Sphere</em>, a computer-controlled, motorized sphere of woven bamboo. The installation creates a spatial and formal dialogue both with Noguchi&rsquo;s work and with two more of Blaisse&rsquo;s woven bamboo structures, which are being presented by slowLab at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In the words of Oek de Jong, taken from Maria Blaisse&rsquo;s just-published monograph <em>Emergence of Form</em>, she &ldquo;is one of the designers making an important contribution to the metamorphosis of human existence.&rdquo; Blaisse&rsquo;s idealism is pragmatic, rigorous and well-earned. While in the past decade she has set herself to exploring natural structural alternatives for almost anything manmade, she has also designed hats used by Issey Miyake, EVA foam costumes employed by Paula Abdul, and boots for Camper.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Blaisse tends to explore with the directness of nature: water running downhill through soft material, seeking the physically obvious answers to the questions that emerge from her material research. But she is also sympathetic to the instincts that lead us to apply our ingenuity to synthesizing, counterfeiting and opposing nature. Her resolutions of this paradox make her uniquely qualified to help lead us not to anything so twee as a post-industrial utopia, but into a more pragmatic and mutually beneficial relationship with our planet. Her latest large body of work exploring the structural potential of woven bamboo is a prime example; she is presently engaged in expanding one of her bamboo structures to the scale of architecture.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Maria Blaisse comes to New York as part of slowLab&rsquo;s 2014 Slow knowledge programming.

With additional contributions from the Shapell Foundation, Harvard College Library, the Library of Congress, and the Morgan&rsquo;s collection of Lincoln manuscripts and letters, it includes photographic portraits and books owned and used by Lincoln, and highlights the range of his rhetorical powers, from the elevated language of his proclamations and great speeches to his forceful, incisive military memos and the intimate prose of personal letters to family and friends. Lincoln drew upon his powers as a writer and orator to sustain the country during its greatest crisis and to inspire Americans to embrace the ultimate purpose of the Civil War: the end of slavery. The show coincides with the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and Lincoln&rsquo;s assassination, and assesses the scale of Lincoln&rsquo;s achievement, and his national and global legacy, through the power of his words.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-name-field-credit-line field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">Lead funding for this exhibition is provided by Karen H.

He produced a series of monumental drawings recording the three Doric temples, then known as the Basilica, the Temple of Neptune, and the Temple of Ceres, in preparation for a set of etchings, <em>Diff&eacute;rents vues de Pesto</em>. Piranesi died shortly after having received the papal imprimatur in 1778, but the set was completed by his son, Francesco, and published posthumously in the same year. In 1817, the English architect Sir John Soane, who had met Piranesi in Rome shortly before the artist&rsquo;s death, acquired fifteen of Piranesi&rsquo;s seventeen surviving Paestum drawings. Preserved at Sir John Soane&rsquo;s Museum in London, the drawings have only recently been restored and will be shown in the United States for the first time.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-name-field-credit-line field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Family Foundation.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Organized by Sir John Soane's Museum, London, with the Morgan Library &amp; Museum, New York.</p> </div> </div> </div> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:31:30 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - The Morgan Library & Museum - November 26th - January 11th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Every holiday season, the Morgan displays Charles Dickens's <a href="http://www.themorgan.org/collections/works/dickens/ChristmasCarol/1" target="_blank">original manuscript</a> of <em>A Christmas Carol</em> in Pierpont Morgan's historic Library. Dickens wrote his iconic tale in a six-week flurry of activity, beginning in October 1843 and ending in time for Christmas publication. He had the manuscript bound in red morocco as a gift for his solicitor, Thomas Mitton. The manuscript then passed through several owners before Pierpont Morgan acquired it in the 1890s.</p> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:29:48 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - February 27th, 2015 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM <div class="header"> <p style="text-align: justify;">Herbert M.

Created between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, and striking for their synthesis of intense rawness and poetry, these representations of seated figures&mdash;mothers nurturing their offspring and aggressive male warriors&mdash;were originally an integral part of monumental carved drums positioned at the epicenter of spiritual life, the heartbeat of Mbembe communities.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">When these electrifying creations were presented for the first time in a Paris gallery in 1974, they immediately caught the attention of the art world. That exhibition was a groundbreaking event that revealed a tradition unlike any that had defined African art until then. Dispersed internationally among private and institutional collections, these works will be reunited in New York for the first time in this exhibition.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Read a <a href="http://www.metmuseum.org/research/metpublications/Silenced_Mbembe_Muses_The_Metropolitan_Museum_Journal_v_48_2013" target="_blank">related article</a> by Alisa LaGamma, Ceil and Michael E.

Born in Oneonta, New York, he moved to California in 1849, taught himself the new medium of photography, and established his reputation in 1861 with an astonishing series of views of Yosemite Valley. It was partly due to the artistry and rugged beauty of these photographs that President Lincoln signed a bill on June 30, 1864, declaring the valley inviolate and initiating the blueprint for the nation's National Park System. In the middle of the brutal Civil War and its destruction of man and land, Lincoln saw the preservation of a small but extraordinary piece of America's wilderness as a progressive goal to share with the republic.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Watkins was a virtuoso practitioner of the difficult wet-collodion process, and the remarkable clarity of his "mammoth" prints (18 by 22 inches) was unmatched. He rendered with exquisite finesse the vastness and grandeur of Yosemite's glacial valleys, dramatic waterfalls, massive rock faces, and majestic trees. Watkins produced this work wrangling a dozen or more mules carrying roughly two thousand pounds of equipment, including his oversize camera, large glass plates, and flammable chemicals. It is in itself a miracle that any photographs survived these travails.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition includes a suite of views made by Watkins during his first encounter with the sublime topography of Yosemite in 1861 as well as a larger group of studies from his later visits to the valley in 1865 and 1866 while working for the California State Geological Survey. It features thirty-six photographs that helped advance the notion that Yosemite was a Pacific paradise, a bit of Eden in North America.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is made possible by Jennifer S. and Philip F. Maritz and an anonymous donor.</p> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:18:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - October 6th - April 19th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">The Burdick Baseball Card collection constitutes an integral part of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection of ephemera and tells the history of popular printmaking in the United States. In 1947, after having approached A. Hyatt Mayor, the Museum's curator of prints and photographs, the Syracuse electrician Jefferson R. Burdick (1900&ndash;1963) began to donate his entire collection of approximately thirty thousand baseball cards in large batches, along with another 270,000 trade and postcards, to the Museum.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The baseball cards collected by Burdick date from 1887 to 1959 and represent the most comprehensive collection outside of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. The cards on view illustrate the history of baseball from the dead-ball era at the turn of the nineteenth century into the golden age and modern era of the sport.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The baseball cards document the sport through various types of media&mdash;from lithography to photography&mdash;and imagery illustrating legends as well as the lesser-known players, owners, and teams that have contributed to the history of the game.</p> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:16:08 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Tomi Ungerer - The Drawing Center - January 16th, 2015 - March 22nd, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Tomi Ungerer is best known as the award winning author and illustrator of such beloved 1960s children&rsquo;s classics as <em>The Three Robbers</em> (1963) and <em>Moon Man</em> (1967). But the virtuoso draftsman&mdash;who was born in Alsace, France, in 1931, and who currently resides in a remote part of Ireland near Cork&mdash;is much more than this. Even as Ungerer was busy producing children&rsquo;s books for the publisher Harper &amp; Row, he was making a name for himself with witty advertising campaigns for <em>The New York Times</em> and the <em>Village Voice</em>, biting satirical illustrations about the business world, and brutal pictorial responses to racism, fascism, and the Vietnam War. Ungerer also made graphic erotic drawings throughout his career. That Ungerer is not as well known in America today as he is in Europe is largely due to his self-imposed exile c.1970, when he and his wife abruptly abandoned New York and relocated to a farm in Nova Scotia, where Ungerer produced some of his most exquisite drawings to date.<br /><br />The Drawing Center exhibition is the first career retrospective in the United States dedicated to this extraordinary artist. Beginning with his childhood drawings depicting the Nazi invasion of Strasbourg, through his work in New York and Canada, and concluding with Ungerer&rsquo;s most recent political and satirical campaigns as well as his illustrations for the 2013 children&rsquo;s book <em>Fog Island</em>, <em>Tomi Ungerer: All in One</em> will re-introduce this wildly creative individual to New York City and the world. The exhibition will occupy the entire Drawing Center, with a spotlight &ldquo;exhibition&rdquo; of Ungerer&rsquo;s erotic drawings in the Drawing Room and animations in the lower-level Lab gallery. <br /><br /><em>Curated by Claire Gilman, Curator.</em> <br /><br /><em>Tomi Ungerer: All in One</em> is made possible by the support of Phaidon Press, Lisa Silver and Jean Castelli, an anonymous gift in honor of Frances Beatty Adler, the Maurice Sendak Foundation, Electricit&eacute; de Strasbourg, HarperCollins, Dominque Formhals, Fiona and Eric Rudin, the French Embassy, and L&rsquo;&eacute;cole des Loisirs.<br /><br />Special thanks to the Mus&eacute;e Tomi Ungerer-Centre international de l'Illustration</p> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:07:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list James Sheehan - The Drawing Center - October 29th - October 31st, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">To activate The Drawing Center&rsquo;s newly designed galleries, the institution&rsquo;s curators have invited artists to create long-term drawing-based installations in atypical locations around the facility. The first project is James Sheehan&rsquo;s <em>Death of Malevich</em> (2013). Sheehan&rsquo;s postage-stamp-size watercolor on board is inserted directly into one of the walls of the basement corridor, creating a keyhole effect that voyeuristically transports the viewer into another realm. His infinitesimal image <em>Death of Malevich</em> derives from a photograph of famed Russian Suprematist painter Kazimir Malevich lying in state, surrounded by his artworks. Sheehan&rsquo;s exploration of the relationship between distance and scale results in a scene that appears legible from afar, but that gradually dissolves on approach&mdash;even as the work&rsquo;s recessed installation (and the placement of the painter&rsquo;s acclaimed <em>Black Square</em>, 1915, directly above the dead man&rsquo;s head) draw the viewer in. This work was also featured in our recent exhibition <a href="http://www.drawingcenter.org/en/drawingcenter/5/exhibitions/14/past/804/small/" target="_blank"><em>Small.</em></a>.<br /><br />In April 2015, artist Abdelkader Benchamma will install <a href="http://www.drawingcenter.org/en/drawingcenter/5/exhibitions/9/upcoming/805/Abdelkader-Benchamma/" target="_blank"><em>Representation of Dark Matter</em></a>, a large-scale graphic wall drawing representing an astrological vortex, in the double-height lobby stairway. This piece will be on view for one year.</p> Mon, 24 Nov 2014 17:05:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Titus Kaphar - Studio Museum in Harlem - November 13th - March 8th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Titus Kaphar (b. 1976) is celebrated for producing paintings, drawings and installations that initiate a contemporary dialogue with history. Marrying eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American portraiture with modernist gesture, Kaphar produces aesthetically striking, intellectually engaging artworks that often blur the line between historical fact and fiction. Representing a marked departure in his practice, <em>Titus Kaphar: The Jerome Project</em> is composed of small-scale works that engage with contemporary social issues, particularly the criminal justice system.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2011, Kaphar began searching for his father&rsquo;s prison records. When he visited a website containing photographs of people who have recently been arrested, he found dozens of men who shared his father&rsquo;s first name, Jerome, and last name. The artist was influenced by the writings of Michelle Alexander and William Julius Wilson on the prison-industrial complex and the use of policing and imprisonment by the US government as a means to address economic, social and political problems. The panels are based on police portraits of the men named Jerome that Kaphar found online, which represent only a portion of each man&rsquo;s identity yet are preserved in the public record. Although each work depicts an individual, this series represents a community of people, particularly African American men, who are overrepresented in the prison population.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">After completing the portraits, Kaphar submerged a portion of each panel in tar; initially the tar-covered area corresponded to the percentage of his life that each subject had spent in prison. Kaphar abandoned the formula after considering the countless consequences of imprisonment for the men&rsquo;s lives, even after their release. In his later panels, Kaphar began with his original equation and extended the tar at least up to the mouth, representing the silencing of the incarcerated men, who were stripped of many rights, including the right to vote and access to federally funded programs in many states. The tar also serves to obscure the men&rsquo;s faces and provides a kind of privacy not afforded to them on the mug shot websites, which are part of the public record.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The Jerome Project</em> draws on iconic historical artworks in its examination of past and contemporary histories. With their gold-leaf backgrounds and single central figures, Kaphar&rsquo;s portraits visually parallel Byzantine holy portraits, specifically those depicting Saint Jerome, the patron saint of librarians and scholars. Although these panels reference religious artworks, they are not meant to carry any assumption of innocence or guilt. Instead they allude to the notion of forgiveness of past transgressions, which is central to many religions. The artist views the inability to offer forgiveness as a shortcoming of the current criminal justice system.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Titus Kaphar: The Jerome Project</em> is organized by Naima J. Keith, Associate Curator.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Studio Museum in Harlem&rsquo;s exhibitions are made possible thanks to support from the following government agencies:&nbsp; The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency; and the New York City Council.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Additional support is generously provided by The Andrew W.
