ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum - March 13th, 2015 - June 3rd, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">This is the first U.S. museum exhibition of mirror works and drawings by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (b. Qazvin, Iran, 1924). Considered in relation to the Guggenheim&rsquo;s historical commitment to abstraction, this presentation examines the artist&rsquo;s rich body of work in its own right and as part of a transnational perspective on artistic production and its reception. After formative years in New York from 1945 to 1957, during which she met artists Milton Avery, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, Louise Nevelson, Barnett Newman, and, later, Andy Warhol, among others, Monir returned to Iran. There, she further developed her artistic sensibility through encounters with traditional craftsmanship, indigenous art forms such as Turkoman jewelry and clothing, coffee house paintings (a popular form of Iranian narrative paintings), and the technique of reverse-glass painting, resulting in a period of artistic discovery that culminated in commissions in Iran and exhibitions in Europe and the United States. The Islamic Revolution in 1979 marked the beginning of Monir&rsquo;s 26-year exile in New York, during which she focused on drawing, collage, commissions, and carpet and textile design. In 2004, when she finally returned to Iran, she reestablished her studio there and resumed working with some of the same craftsmen she had collaborated with in the 1970s.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This presentation includes plaster and mirror reliefs, large-scale mirror sculptures the artist refers to as &ldquo;geometric families,&rdquo; and works on paper, revealing the central role drawing has played in Monir&rsquo;s practice and focusing on a sculptural and graphic oeuvre developed over more than 40 years (many examples of which have not been displayed publicly since the 1970s). This body of work is characterized by a merging of visual and spatial experience, coupled with the aesthetic traditions of Islamic architecture and decoration. Her use of geometry as form allows for, in the artist&rsquo;s words, &ldquo;infinite possibility.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition is organized by Suzanne Cotter, Director, Funda&ccedil;&atilde;o de Serralves&ndash;Museu de Arte Contempor&acirc;nea, Porto, Portugal, with <a href="http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/about/staff-profiles/curators/karole-vail" target="_blank">Karole Vail</a>, Associate Curator, Solomon R.

Guggenheim Museum - February 6th, 2015 - May 3rd, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Through radically restricted means, On Kawara&rsquo;s work engages the personal and historical consciousness of place and time. Kawara&rsquo;s practice is often associated with the rise of Conceptual art, yet in its complex wit and philosophical reach, it stands well apart.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Organized with the cooperation of the artist, <em>On Kawara&mdash;Silence</em> will be the first full representation of Kawara&rsquo;s output, beginning in 1964 and including every category of work, much of it produced during his travels across the globe: date paintings (the <em>Today</em> series); postcards (the <em>I Got Up</em> series); telegrams (the <em>I Am Still Alive</em> series); maps (the <em>I Went</em> series); lists of names (the <em>I Met</em> series); newspaper cuttings (the <em>I Read</em> series); the inventory of paintings (<em>Journals</em>); and calendars (<em>One Hundred Years</em> and <em>One Million Years</em>). The exhibition will also present numerous drawings produced in Paris in 1964, which are fascinating proposals for unrealized works; and Kawara&rsquo;s only two extant paintings of 1965, <em>Location</em> and <em>Title</em>, which herald the <em>Today</em> series. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Guggenheim will organize a continuous live reading of the artist&rsquo;s <em>One Million Years</em>, the steady recitation of numbers from a vast ledger, which will be performed on the ground floor of the Guggenheim rotunda.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">On Kawara&rsquo;s paintings were first shown at the Guggenheim Museum in the 1971 Guggenheim International Exhibition. Over 40 years later this large exhibition will transform the Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda&mdash;itself a form that signifies movement through time and space&mdash;into a site within which audiences can reflect on an artistic practice of cumulative power and depth.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 17:08:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Jonah Kinigstein - Society of Illustrators - January 6th, 2015 - February 7th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Jonah Kinigstein was born in Coney Island in 1923. Growing up in Coney Island was, well, like growing up in an amusement park.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;As a kid, I was glued to everything that took place&mdash;what they call &lsquo;on the bowery.&rsquo; It was an area that had all these old amusement park things. Carousels, horses. Ghost houses where you go up with your girlfriend&mdash;twists and turns&mdash;and then you come out at the other end. And they had all kinds of combinations like that, and then the games that you play. That always remained . . . you couldn&rsquo;t get rid of it in your head as a kid. I mean, it was stuck in there.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">His family moved to the Bronx when he was 11 or 12, which is when he started drawing. Like other artists of his generation he started drawing on the street in chalk to entertain his friends and enhance his social standing. By the time he was attending James Monroe High School, he knew he wanted to be an artist and make a living at it. He credits an art teacher there, Max Wilkes, as an inspiration.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;He was an academic teacher and he could teach us anatomy, and that was important at the time, very important. He taught us how to set up a whole figure. We used to bring in our drawings to Max, who looked at them, corrected them, and showed [us] where it was all wrong.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He discovered artists such as Norman Rockwell, whom he especially admired because his painting was narrative. He visited the Metropolitan Museum&mdash;&ldquo;When I really saw the old masters, it blew my mind, of course.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Upon graduating high school, Kinigstein attended Cooper Union. He could afford it because the tuition was free to students who passed a test. He spent a year there studying architecture, sculpture, and painting but was drafted into the Army in 1942. After basic training at Fort Dix, he was stationed in Louisiana where he was assigned to a phototopography unit, which enhanced aerial photos of enemy territory. He continued the same work in Saipan&mdash;and in Tinian, where he would also occasionally paint landscapes for himself while listening to bombs exploding not far from the base.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He was discharged in 1945, moved back home with his parents, spent another year at Cooper Union, and then started pounding the payment and knocking on doors looking for freelance illustration jobs. Although he managed to do some LP covers and book jackets, he wasn&rsquo;t particularly successful.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 1948, an old Army buddy encouraged him to move to Paris. &ldquo;So I decided that&rsquo;s where I&rsquo;m gonna go. And I tell you, it wasn&rsquo;t easy to get myself over there on a boat. . . . I went to work for a place that was selling fish. And for a whole month I was there shucking clams until I got enough money.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He arrived that same year and started attending the Acad&eacute;mie de la Grande Chaumi&egrave;re. He lived a Spartan existence on his monthly $75.00 stipend courtesy of the G.I. Bill, and found the instruction generally less valuable than the social context&mdash;conversing with other aspiring artists, exchanging ideas, exhibiting his work, seeing established artists, and generally soaking up a fertile creative environment.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He was part of exhibitions at the Salon D&rsquo;Automne, Salon de Mai, and the Salon des Moins de Trente Ans, and had one-man shows in the Galerie Breteau and Les Impressions D&rsquo;Art. But the money ran out, and he couldn&rsquo;t make a living in Paris, so he returned to New York in 1954. A year later, he went to Rome on a Fulbright Scholarship, and studied at the La Schola Di Belles Artes for a year.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He again returned to the U.S. and exhibited his paintings at the Downtown Gallery in Manhattan for a year or so, and continued to exhibit his work at the Alan Gallery, an adjunct to the Downtown Gallery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Like so many painters, he was unable to make a living solely from painting, so he worked in the commercial art world and did freelance illustration and design. One of his most significant clients was the Austen Display Company, where he designed and constructed window display backgrounds for well-known department stores such as Bloomingdale&rsquo;s, Bonwit Teller, Lord &amp; Taylor, and Tiffany &amp; Co. He also created the first designer shopping bag for Bloomingdale&rsquo;s.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He then found himself the head of the Research and Development at a point-of-purchase advertising firm exclusively devoted to the Seagram Company. Government regulations ended his position there when it became illegal to advertise whiskey in store windows or on counters.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">His next job was as a chromist with a printing company that made lithographs for a variety of famous artists. Watercolor or oil paintings had to be deconstructed so the painting&rsquo;s colors could be reproduced on a printing press. The chromist&rsquo;s job was the exacting one of separating those colors so the press could handle them. At times, as many as 20 different plates needed to be produced to make a lithographic print of a single painting.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Throughout this time, Kinigstein&rsquo;s commitment to his own art never wavered, and he continued to paint and occasionally exhibit. In an uncharacteristic understatement, he wrote, &ldquo;Not happy in the direction the &lsquo;Art&rsquo; world was going and who was goading it on I started to make caricatures of the guilty parties and am continuing to make them to this very day.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jonah Kinigstein lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Eileen.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 17:04:56 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Sculpture Center - January 25th, 2015 - March 30th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">SculptureCenter is pleased to announce <em>Now Showing: Belleza y Felicidad</em>, a mini-retrospective of poetry booklets by Buenos Aires literature and art collective <em>Belleza y Felicidad</em>. <em>Now Showing</em> is a program that highlights a single artwork or project in areas throughout SculptureCenter's building and is an exploratory and flexible mode for presenting artworks and projects to our audiences. <br /> <br /> Spearheaded by two friends, the poet and artist <strong>Fernanda Laguna</strong> and poet and translator <strong>Cecilia Pav&oacute;n</strong> from 1999&ndash;2007 in a storefront gallery and art supply store, <em>Belleza y Felicidad</em> brought together writers and artists of differing generations and statures to collaborate on small books, events, and other happenings, energizing the Buenos Aires art and literature scene. Although no longer tied to a physical location, <em>Belleza y Felicidad</em> continues to produce books under their imprint. Published texts include poems by Laguna, Pav&oacute;n, C&eacute;sar Aira, Gabriela Bejerman, Roberto Jacoby, Fabi&aacute;n Casas, and many others. Select copies will be available for sale.<br /> <br /> Additionally, the independent Key West-based publisher Sand Paper Press is releasing a publication in February 2015, spanning the last fifteen years of Laguna and Pav&oacute;n's literary works and collaborations. <em>Belleza y Felicidad: Selected Writings of Fernanda Laguna and Cecilia Pav&oacute;n</em> includes an introduction by translator Stuart Krimko, noted for his work on H&eacute;ctor Viel Temperley and other Argentine writers. This authoritative volume transmits the urgency and passionate feeling at the heart of one of the most exciting artistic and literary movements to emerge from South America in recent decades. This book will also be available for purchase in SculptureCenter's bookstore.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 17:00:35 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Robert Dash - Parrish Art Museum - March 15th, 2015 - April 26th, 2015 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">For nearly fifty years Robert Dash (1934&ndash;2013) painted and gardened at Madoo (an old Scottish word for "my dove"), a gray-shingled cluster of 18th-century buildings near the ocean in Sagaponack. He recorded epiphanies large and small that transpired in those two acres, in both lyrical paint and elegant prose written for a weekly newspaper column. In a final series of ten paintings and as many works on paper, Dash amplified a single image of neighboring Sagg Main Street to create a nuanced exploration of color and light.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Parrish Perspectives </em>is a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:37:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Jules Feiffer - Parrish Art Museum - March 15th, 2015 - April 26th, 2015 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">More than 140 large scale ink and watercolor drawings Jules Feiffer created for his first-ever full scale graphic novel demonstrate how, at the age of 85, this world renowned cartoonist has established an entirely new artistic direction. The installation takes viewers on a journey through Feiffer's complex noir drama, and offers a unique opportunity to see and experience the artist's creative process. In addition, Feiffer has created a dozen new drawings that function as wall texts guiding the audience through the story.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Parrish Perspectives </em>is a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:36:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Joe Zucker - Parrish Art Museum - March 15th, 2015 - April 26th, 2015 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">A recent gift to the Parrish of nine drawings by Joe Zucker, all studies for a 1992 print project with Riverhouse Editions in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, prompted an in depth look at the working process of this protean artist. For the first time the drawings and prints will be shown together with a series of paintings&mdash;sash-cord strung in a lattice-like grid&ndash;all inspired by an extended consideration of the wily and industrious arachnid. "My paintings are about the process of painting," he said. "It's a blue-collar, proletarian approach." The work touches on the issues of the relationship between the process of painting and the meaning and use of the materials."&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Parrish Perspectives </em>is a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:35:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - New York Historical Society - March 20th, 2015 - June 7th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Marking the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and Lincoln&rsquo;s assassination, this exhibition focuses on the significant, and hitherto unknown, relationships and interactions between Abraham Lincoln and his Jewish friends and associates. At a time when Jews comprised less than one-half of one percent of the American population, and with the country rampant with prejudice, Lincoln&rsquo;s positive and meaningful personal relationships with Jewish individuals not only arguably changed him but also had an important and lasting impact on the status of American Jews. Lincoln stood up to his anti-Semitic generals even as he depended upon them to win the war, and became an advocate for Jewish equality and acceptance.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Through never-before displayed original documents, artifacts, photographs, Lincoln's own writings, and first person accounts primarily from the Shapell Manuscript Collection, the exhibition will trace events in Lincoln&rsquo;s life through the lens of his Jewish contemporaries, such as Abraham Jonas, who became Lincoln&rsquo;s political strategist and &ldquo;most valued friend,&rdquo; and Issachar Zacharie, his enigmatic confidant. Furthermore, the exhibition will explore Lincoln&rsquo;s profound interest in and connection to the Old Testament, as exemplified in his wish to see Jerusalem before he died.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:31:20 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list John James Audubon - New York Historical Society - March 6th, 2015 - May 10th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Part III of the highly acclaimed tripartite series <em>Audubon&rsquo;s Aviary: The Complete Flock</em> will continue showcasing masterpieces from the New-York Historical Society collection of John James Audubon&rsquo;s preparatory watercolors for the sumptuous double-elephant-folio print edition of <em>The Birds of America</em> (1827&ndash;38), engraved by Robert Havell Jr. Part III of <em>The Complete Flock</em> will highlight Audubon&rsquo;s watercolor models for Havell plates 306&ndash;435 (fascicles 62&ndash;87). At this time he was rushing to complete his great work and, therefore, represented the outliers and western species to bookend the North American continent.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Considered America&rsquo;s first great watercolorist, the legendary naturalist-artist rendered his birds in unparalleled life-size scale. His years drawing portraits to support his family, coupled with his passion for drawing birds, enabled him to capture the individuality of each species in inventive tableaux. Since every avian watercolor is based on a lifetime of observation and study, they characterize the essence of each bird in arresting, often cinematic, images that soar beyond illustration to magically capture the fragile, often brutal and endangered balance of nature. With Audubon&rsquo;s peripatetic existence, the survival of this trove in such pristine condition is miraculous. Featuring new findings about the artist&rsquo;s working methods and his ornithological and artistic influences, Audubon&rsquo;s Aviary will illuminate his true genius.&nbsp;The series reveals the multiple reasons why history has deemed Audubon an American icon and New-York Historical's watercolors a national treasure.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This once-in-a lifetime trilogy explores Audubon&rsquo;s dazzling watercolors in the order in which they were engraved, affording visitors the unique opportunity to view them sequentially, like his original subscribers, and in their entirety. Audubon organized <em>The Birds of America</em> not by traditional taxonomic order, but according to his aesthetic and practical judgments. He believed this manner of presentation was closer to that of nature. Bird songs of all the species exhibited and videos will underline the importance of field observation for the artist and the conservation of avian species, which are the canaries in the coalmine for planet Earth. In addition, one of Havell&rsquo;s copper plates and volume four of New-York Historical's copy of <em>The Birds of America</em>, whose plates will be turned weekly, will also be exhibited.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:30:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Group Show - New Museum - February 25th, 2015 - May 24th, 2015 <h4 style="text-align: justify;">A signature initiative of the New Museum, the Triennial is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to early-career artists from around the world.</h4> <div class="body"> <p style="text-align: justify;">It provides an important platform for an emergent generation of artists that is shaping the discourse of contemporary art. The Triennial&rsquo;s predictive, rather than retrospective, model embodies the institution&rsquo;s thirty-seven-year commitment to exploring the future of culture through the art of today. The 2015 Triennial is organized by Lauren Cornell, Curator, 2015 Triennial, Museum as Hub, and Digital Projects at the New Museum, and the iconic artist Ryan Trecartin, who was featured in the inaugural 2009 Triennial.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This third iteration of the Triennial is titled <strong>&ldquo;Surround Audience&rdquo;</strong> and will feature fifty-one artists and artist collectives from over twenty-five countries; for many of the participants, this will be their first inclusion in a museum exhibition in the United States.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Cornell and Trecartin have worked together for nearly a decade and they each bring a shared passion for probing the social and psychological effects of digital technology. For Cornell, &ldquo;Surround Audience&rdquo; is inspired in part by Trecartin&rsquo;s own artistic practice, which, as she describes, &ldquo;vividly manifests a world in which the effects of technology and late capitalism have been absorbed into our bodies and altered our vision of the world.&rdquo; A tension between the newfound freedoms and threats of today&rsquo;s society animates and anchors &ldquo;Surround Audience.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">We are surrounded by a culture replete with impressions of life, be they visual, written, or construed through data. We move through streams of chatter, swipe past pictures of other people&rsquo;s lives, and frame our own experiences as, all the while, our digital trails are subtly captured, tracked, and stored. This is a culture in which the radical multimedia environments envisioned by pioneering artists like Nam June Paik and Stan VanDerBeek are being lived out every day, albeit with much more complexity and compromise. With these transformations in mind, &ldquo;Surround Audience&rdquo; explores how artists are currently depicting subjectivity, unpacking complex systems of power, and claiming sites of artistic agency.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">While issues around social media provide a point of departure for the exhibition, it is not the platforms themselves that are the exhibition&rsquo;s primary focus, but rather the ways their associated effects intersect with life. Among the many narratives and ideas emerging from the works, there are three recurring lines of inquiry: First, how representations of the body and persona have evolved in an image-laden culture in which surveillance is widely dispersed and editorializing one&rsquo;s life in public is the norm; second, if it might be possible to opt out of or reframe the pressures of increasingly corporatized and invasive spaces; and third, how artists are striving to embed their works in the world around them through incursions into media and activism.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition encompasses a variety of artistic practices, including sound, dance, comedy, poetry, installation, sculpture, painting, video, and one online talk show. If there is any aesthetic link between these diverse works it is in their energetic mutability of form. Together, these works speak to a newfound elasticity in our understanding of what mediums constitute contemporary art. Here, paintings evolve out of 3-D models, digital images erupt into sculpture, and sound becomes action. This is a group of works that attests to how form is continuously converted across word, image, and medium.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>RESIDENCIES, COMMISSIONS, &amp; NEW WORKS</strong><br /> Many of the works in the Triennial have been commissioned specifically for the show. In the two years leading up to the exhibition, the New Museum has hosted research and production residences for both international and local artists: niv Acosta, Aslı &Ccedil;avuşoğlu, Juliana Huxtable, Geumhyung Jeong, Eduardo Navarro, Daniel Steegmann Mangran&eacute;, and Luke Willis Thompson. These residencies took different forms: Some consisted of research supported by the New Museum&rsquo;s curatorial team, while others took place on-site at the studio spaces in the Museum&rsquo;s adjacent building at 231 Bowery and in the New Museum Theater, which was used as a rehearsal space. Additional new works by Nadim Abbas, Sophia Al-Maria, Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili, Olga Balema, Frank Benson, Sascha Braunig, Jos&eacute; Le&oacute;n Cerrillo, Onejoon Che, Tania P&eacute;rez C&oacute;rdova, DIS, Aleksandra Domanović, Casey Jane Ellison, Exterritory, Shadi Habib Allah, Lena Henke, Josh Kline, Eva Kot&aacute;tkov&aacute;, Oliver Laric, Rachel Lord, Ashland Mines, Avery K. Singer, Martine Syms, and Lisa Tan have also been commissioned or produced for the exhibition.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In addition to works featured in the galleries, the curators selected artists to mobilize sites outside of the Museum, including the means of dispersing information about the exhibition itself. Such projects include the Triennial ad campaign <em>Extended Release</em> (2015), which was conceived and designed by New York artist collective K-HOLE and serves as the group&rsquo;s contribution to the exhibition. <a href="http://distantfeel.com/"><em>Distant Feel</em></a> (2015)&mdash;a new symbol for empathy designed by Antoine Catala, intended as an &ldquo;update to the peace sign&rdquo;&mdash;was co-commissioned by the Carnegie Museum of Art and will be made available online as a GIF as well as presented within the show as a sculpture. Finally, episodes of Ovation&rsquo;s &ldquo;Touching the Art&rdquo; (2014&ndash;15)&mdash;a web series by Casey Jane Ellison that will temporarily become an artwork in &ldquo;Surround Audience&rdquo;&mdash;will focus on themes broached by the exhibition and will be shot in the Museum.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>PUBLICATIONS</strong><br /> &ldquo;Surround Audience&rdquo; will also be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue designed by Familiar and copublished by the New Museum and Rizzoli. The catalogue will include full-color, four-page spreads on each of the fifty-one artists and groups as well interviews between the artist collective DIS and Daniel Steegmann Mangran&eacute;, artist; Andrew Durbin, writer, and Frank Benson and Juliana Huxtable, artists; Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, and Basim Magdy, artist; and Sara O&rsquo;Keeffe, Assistant Curator, and Aslı &Ccedil;avuşoğlu, artist. The catalogue will also include essays by Cornell and Trecartin; Johanna Burton, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement; Brian Droitcour, writer; Alexander Provan, writer and Cofounder, Triple Canopy; and Hito Steyerl, artist.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In conjunction with the exhibition, the New Museum will publish a book of poetry, researched and edited by Droitcour. Featuring works by over sixty-nine contributors, including Cathy Park Hong, Dodie Bellamy, Jenny Zhang, M&oacute;nica de la Torre, and Bhanu Kapil, with original translations and texts by Triennial artists all interwoven with transcriptions of social media statuses of many varieties, <em>The Animated Reader: Poetry of Surround Audience</em> offers an expansion of the Triennial&rsquo;s themes in the medium of poetry.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT THE TRIENNIAL</strong><br /> The New Museum Triennial was initiated in 2009. The first edition, &ldquo;Younger Than Jesus,&rdquo; was organized by Massimiliano Gioni, Laura Hoptman, and Lauren Cornell. The second Triennial, &ldquo;The Ungovernables,&rdquo; was organized by Eungie Joo in 2012. The 2015 Triennial was organized by Lauren Cornell, Curator, 2015 Triennial, Museum as Hub, and Digital Projects, and artist Ryan Trecartin, with Sara O&rsquo;Keeffe, Assistant Curator. The catalogue was overseen by Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>PARTICIPATING ARTISTS</strong><br /> <strong>Nadim Abbas</strong> <br /> (b. 1980, Hong Kong, China.

Their development was parallel and often intersected. Such artists as Vasily Kandinsky or Alexei von Jawlensky are claimed by the Germans but remain Russian artists for the Russians.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Burliuk brothers, who became celebrities of the Russian radical art scene, participated in the first exhibition of Blaue Reiter in Germany. Russian artists travelled to Germany and lived there, while their German counterparts were aware of what was shown in Moscow exhibition halls. A diverse art movement formed in Germany in the beginning of the 1910s was given the name &ldquo;Expressionism&rdquo; by the critic Herwarth Walden. Members of such groups as Die Brucke and Blaue Reiter were initially influenced by the French Fauves. Their Russian contemporaries also tried to find artistic truth in these new approaches. However, both in Germany and Russia, the French style underwent radical transformation. The exhibition will explore not only the direct connections and collaborations of German and Russian artists, but also the affinities in both countries&rsquo; artistic development. It will trace the Russian approach to Expressionism and put this in the context of the history of twentieth-century art.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:17:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Richard Haas - National Academy Museum - January 29th, 2015 - May 3rd, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Revealing Architecture</em> features work and projects by FXFOWLE Architects and artist Richard Haas in the Curatorial Lab.</p> Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:12:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Richard Estes - Museum of Arts and Design - May 30th, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM <div class="description_block_body"> <div class="field field-name-field-evnt-description field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">In his painting process, Richard Estes uses photography as a basis from which to create his photorealist paintings, on view in the exhibition <em>Richard Estes: Painting New York</em>.
