This exhibition is dedicated t o the memory of Mickey Straus.

\n

In 196 4\, inspired by both the long history of art and by imagery he found on con temporary printed postcards\, Roy Lichtenstein began to explore the genre o f land and seascapes\, using paint\, plastic\, enamel\, drawings\, collage\ , print\, and even film to realize his various works. Seascapes were an ess ential part of the artist&rsquo\;s lifelong exploration of psychological op tics\, light and his keen observations on the nature of field and ground. T hey were a genre he would revisit throughout his career in various media an d guises. Comprised of over 30 works form private lenders and the Roy Licht enstein Foundation\, the exhibition will include works from the 1960s-1990s . A collaboration between Guild Hall and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation\, Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky celebrate the artist&rsquo\;s abiding relationship with the East End of New York and all that it inspired.

Masterpieces &\; Curiosities: Alfred Stieglitz's The Steerage focuses on Stieglitz&rsquo\;s enduring 1907 picture of steerage-c lass passengers aboard the ocean liner Kaiser Wilhelm II. This ima ge has often been regarded as evidence of the poor conditions under which m any immigrants arrived in America\; however\, Stieglitz took the photograph on a voyage to Europe. As such\, it is a document of peop le who were likely denied entry and citizenship to the United States. Stieg litz's concerns\, however\, were largely aesthetic rather than social-minde d: he was moved more by the picture's formal qualities than its subject mat ter. Stieglitz considered the work to be his greatest triumph in a long\, i llustrious career as a photographer\, stating later in life\, "If all my ph otographs were lost\, and I&rsquo\;d be represented by just one\, The S teerage\, I&rsquo\;d be satisfied."

\n
\n
\n

< em>Alfred Stieglitz's The Steerage demonstrates the artist's ceaseless promotion of the image\, from its reproduction in Camera Work\, S tieglitz&rsquo\;s high-minded art journal\, to popular magazines such as Vanity Fair. The exhibition will also feature Stieglitz's own accoun t of its creation\, in which he recalls:

\n
\n

How I hated the a tmosphere of the first class on that ship. One couldn&rsquo\;t escape the n ouveaux riches. I had to get away from that company. As I came to the end o f the [deck] I stood alone\, looking down. The whole scene fascinated me. I longed to escape from my surroundings and join those people. I saw a pictu re of shapes and underlying that the feeling I had about life. Should I try to put down this seemingly new vision that held me - people\, the common p eople\, the feeling of ship and ocean and sky and the feeling of release th at I was away from the mob called the rich? Here would be a picture based o n related shapes and on the deepest human feeling\, a step in my own evolut ion\, a spontaneous discovery.

\n
\n

The exhibition further exp lores the discrepancy in experience between those\, like Stieglitz\, travel ing in first-class\, and those in steerage. An exact model of the Kaise r Wilhelm II demonstrates the sheer scale of this impressive ocean lin er\, while vintage postcards depict the lavish interiors of its first-class cabins. By contrast\, Edward A. Steiner&rsquo\;s On the Trail of the I mmigrant\, published in 1906\, provides an unsparing account of the wr etched steerage conditions aboard the same ship.

\n

Despite the fact that < em>The Steerage shows people leaving\, not coming to\, the United Stat es\, by the mid-twentieth century The Steerage came to be viewed a s the quintessential image of immigrants en route to America. The image res onates on a personal level\, especially with Jewish Americans\, who often m istake one of the figures in the foreground for a Jewish man mid-prayer (at a quick glance\, the striped cloth looks like a tallit\, or praye r shawl). Perhaps for this reason above all\, The Steerage has bec ome the textbook image for Jewish immigration (it even appears on the cover of The Columbia History of Jews &\; Judaism in America\, publi shed in 2008).

\n

Two related artworks from the Jewish Museum&rsquo\;s coll ection are also included in this exhibition: Arnold Newman&rsquo\;s 1944 do uble portrait of Stieglitz and the artist Georgia O&rsquo\;Keeffe (whom he married in 1924)\, and Vik Muniz's contemporary rendition of The Steera ge\, which he recreated in chocolate sauce in 2000.

From early vanguard constructi vist works by Alexander Rodchenko and El Lissitzky\, to the modernist image s of Arkady Shaikhet and Max Penson\, Soviet photographers played a pivotal role in the history of modern photography. Covering the period from the 19 17 Bolshevik Revolution through the 1930s\, this exhibition explores how ea rly modernist \;photography influenced a new Soviet style while energiz ing and expanding the nature of the medium &mdash\; and how photography\, f ilm\, and poster art were later \;harnessed to disseminate Communist id eology. \;The Power of Pictures \;revisits this moment in history when artists acted as engines of social change and radical politica l engagement\, so that art and politics went hand in hand.

\n

In a country where 70% of the population was illitera te\, photographic propaganda often was more valuable than newspaper editori als. Lenin himself declared that the camera\, as much as the gun\, was an i mportant weapon in &ldquo\;class struggle.&rdquo\; Recognizing that images had the power to transform society\, \;Lenin put photography at the ser vice of the Revolution &mdash\; thereby serving as a historical demonstrati on of how artistic and political ambitions can coalesce and fortify one ano ther. \;The Power of Pictures \;will illustrate \;that this work\, developing alongside avant-garde art\, \;encompassed a muc h wider range of artistic styles and thematic content than previously recog nized. By contrasting works produced by Oktober and The Union of Russian Pr oletarian Photographers (ROPF)\, the exhibition will consider the conflicts and similarities of these respective groups of photographers who defined S oviet style of the period. \;The Power of Pictures \;highl ights constructivist photographers\, including Rodchenko\, El Lissitzky\, a nd Boris Ignatovich\, whose work was presented in important exhibitions of the time. Such photographers influenced a new generation of photojournalist s\, such as Shaikhet\, Penson\, Eleazar Langman\, and Georgi Zelma &mdash\; the majority \;of whom were Jewish.

\n

In addition to a stunning collection of photographic works\, the exhibi tion includes films by major directors of the era\, including the seminal&n bsp\;Sergei Eisenstein film\, \;Battleship Potemkin. Despite E isenstein's relative fame\, \;many of these filmmakers \;have been overlooked or excised from the history of the medium. \;The Power o f Pictures \;features a rich array of film posters and vintage boo ks that employ radical graphic styles with extreme color\, dynamic geometri c designs\, and innovative collages and photomontages. Also presented are e xamples of periodicals in which major photographic works were published.

Sights and Sounds: Cuba \;features new work by Sandra Ramos\, Diana Montero\, Reynier Leyva Novo\, and \;Vanessa Portieles and Yanelvis Gonzá\;lez\, selected by Mailyn Machado.

\n
\n
\n

This selection of videos by Cuban artists living in Cuba and Florida fo cuses on a prominent issue in the island&rsquo\;s modern history: the chall enge of staying or leaving\, and the cultural and social effects of that di lemma. Cuba was long defined as a society that received immigrants\; that c hanged with the Revolution of 1959. Waves of emigration throughout the last half-century have become a familiar\, and highly politicized\, phenomenon. Until a very recent change in the law\, emigration was a permanent one-way trip.

\n

A second large influence on re cent art was the severe economic crisis of the 1990s\, which undermined pub lic confidence in the Revolution and its legacy. The family was at the epic enter of individual response to this problem (and hence is a frequent subje ct of video artists)\; emigration was now seen not as a political statement but a personal choice. Equally significant was the rise of an underground economy that sustained the country.

\n

T he social bonds produced by these changes\, as well as uneven access to new technologies\, have caused new networks and communities to develop among C ubans both at home and abroad\, forming a complex new cultural geography. T he four videos seen here are\, in a sense\, a barometer of these social shi fts. Video is especially well-adapted to this role\; in Cuba\, in order to evade the state monopoly on media\, it has become a person-to-person medium \, a conduit between the audience and reality\, a record of fragments of li fe that flows from hand to hand\, from computer to computer\, unofficially.

Jacob Riis (1849-1914) was a p ioneering newspaper reporter and social reformer in New York at the turn of the 20th century. His then-novel idea of using photographs to illustrate t he plight of the city&rsquo\;s poor&mdash\;New York&rsquo\;s &ldquo\;other half&rdquo\;&mdash\;established Riis as a forerunner of modern photojournal ism. His photography was effective\, and his work spurred legislation and n ew organizations that addressed housing conditions and more. Jacob A. R iis: Revealing New York&rsquo\;s Other Half features photographs by Ri is and his contemporaries\, as well as his handwritten journals and persona l correspondence.

\n

This is the first m ajor retrospective of Riis&rsquo\;s photographic work in the U.S. since the City Museum&rsquo\;s seminal 1947 exhibition\, The Battle with the Slu m\, and for the first time unites the Museum&rsquo\;s Jacob A. Riis Co llection&mdash\;the sole archive of Riis&rsquo\;s images&mdash\;and the Jac ob A. Riis Papers from the Library of Congress.

\n

The exhibition is curated by Bonnie Yochelson\, former Curator o f Prints and Photographs at the City Museum\, and is co-presented by the Li brary of Congress. It will travel to Washington\, D.C.\, and to Denmark fol lowing its presentation at the City Museum.

\n

New York City has a long histo ry of creating below-market housing for its residents. Today the city offer s subsidized housing to families across a wide economic spectrum\; more tha n 400\,000 in public housing\, and many more in privately or cooperatively owned apartments. With affordable housing a cornerstone of Mayor Bill de Bl asio&rsquo\;s administration\, New York&rsquo\;s housing legacy&mdash\;ofte n overlooked and little understood&mdash\;is more relevant than ever.

\n

Affordable New York traces over a century of affordable housing activism\, documenting the ways in which ref ormers\, policy makers\, and activists have fought to transform their city. A focus on current and future housing initiatives demonstrates how New Yor kers continue to promote subsidized housing as a way to achieve diversity\, neighborhood stability\, and social justice. \;

&bull\; The revival&rsquo\;s roots in th e 1930s and 1940s\, when singers&mdash\;such as Woody Guthrie\, Josh White\ , and Burl Ives&mdash\;moved to New York\, drawn by performance opportuniti es and the progressive political climate.

\n

&bull\; The expansion of folk music culture in the 1950s\, when the ge nre changed from an art form associated with leftist politics during the Re d Scare&mdash\;ensnaring many performers\, including Seeger-­\;‐-­\;‐ to a popular craze with mass appeal.

\n

&bull\; The boom years in the late 1950s to the mid-­\;‐1960s\, when Gre enwich Village was the focal point of the revival culture due to the concen tration of performance venues\, including the exhibition&rsquo\;s eponymous Folk City.

\n

&bull\; The legacy of the revival from 1965 to the present day\, showing how the revival has continu ed and retained its relevancy through five decades. This includes the rise of &lsquo\;folk-­\;‐rock&rsquo\; and other folk trends after the &ldquo\ ;British Invasion&rdquo\; and Dylan&rsquo\;s stunning turn to electric guit ar in 1965.

\n

&ldquo\;The New York folk music community created songs that stopped Americans in their tracks. Folk Songs were of substance\, the meat and potatoes of people&rsquo\;s lives\, &rdquo\; said Petrus. &ldquo\;This music resonated with New Yorkers and man y others. It not only informed them about their cultural heritage\, but als o broke down social barriers.&rdquo\;

\n

Folk City highlights visionary entrepreneurs who were committed to promoti ng folk music\, including Mike Porco of Gerde&rsquo\;s Folk City\, Izzy You ng of the Folklore Center\, and John Hammond of Columbia Records. The Green wich Village performance spaces are shown as exciting venues and as incubat ors of a burgeoning counterculture. Artists from different backgrounds perf ormed in Village clubs as well as in one of the city&rsquo\;s great communa l gathering places\, Washington Square Park\, where they tried out both new music and new ideas that often challenged social conventions of the time.< /p>\n

The Museum will offer a broad array o f public programs in conjunction with the exhibition\, including folk conce rts and panel discussions. The Museum&rsquo\;s Frederick A.O. Schwarz Child ren&rsquo\;s Center has designed special programs for students and teachers \, which have been made possible by a grant from the D&rsquo\;Addario Found ation. After exploring the lyrics\, videos\, and songs of singers like Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan\, families will join in music-­\;‐based activities .

\n

The exhibition is accompanied by a newly published book\, Folk City: New York and the American Folk Music Revi val\, by Stephen Petrus and historian Ronald D. Cohen\, with a foreword by Peter Yarrow. Published by Oxford University Press\, the book shows that fo lk music flowered in New York as a result of initiatives of musicians\, rec ord company producers and executives\, radio show hosts\, club owners\, con cert promoters\, folklorists\, managers\, journalists\, and audiences. Prin ceton University historian Sean Wilentz calls Folk City &ldquo\;the best hi story yet of the city&rsquo\;s influential folk music culture\, packed with astonishing photos that finally see the light of day.&rdquo\; The Village Voice named Folk City one of &ldquo\;Fifteen Books You Need to Read in 2015 .&rdquo\;

\n

Folk City merchandise\, ava ilable in the Museum shop and its online store\, will including a large sel ection of CDs\, miniature replicas of guitars\, books\, and objects includi ng 3D magnets\, a lunchbox\, earbuds\, postcards\, and original photos\, ma ny of which are featured in the exhibition.

\n

The exhibition&rsquo\;s honorary co-­\;‐chairs are themselves sig nificant participants in the folk revival and its legacy: Oscar Brand\, Jud y Collins\, Steve Earle\, Nora Guthrie\, Noel Stookey\, and Peter Yarrow.\n

The idea for the exhibition originated with co-­\;‐chair John R. Heller\, and he was joined in supporting and helping raise funds by co-­\;‐chairs of James E. Buckman and Thomas M. N eff.

An anthropological case study by architect and curator Stephen Fan\, SUB URBANISMS explores the controver sial conversion of suburban single-family homes into multi-family communiti es by immigrant Chinese casino workers in Connecticut. Addressing the norms \, cultural values\, and public policies that determine how most Americans live\, the exhibition juxtaposes immigrant cultural beliefs and pragmatism with suburban American social\, aesthetic\, and financial codes. With a reg ional focus and global reach\, it also provides insight into the long-term effects of 9/11 on the New York Chinatown service industry as a significant factor behind the influx of Chinese labor seeking employment at the region 's casinos\, and the formation of this satellite suburban Chinatown. With c reative implications for the future of housing design and habitation in res ponse to cultural\, social\, and ecological challenges\, SUB URBANISMS offe rs a powerful inquiry into the ways in which culture shapes our lives and h omes.

In this survey exhibition\, ar chitectural historian Kerri Culhane documents and explores Poy Gum Lee&rsqu o\;s (1900-1968) nearly 50-year long career in both China and New York and examines Lee&rsquo\;s modernist influence in New York Chinatown. This proje ct will result in the first-ever comprehensive list of Lee&rsquo\;s project s in New York. Lee&rsquo\;s hand is visible in the major civic architecture of Chinatown post 1945\, which blends stylistically Chinese details with m odern technologies and materials. Lee was the architectural consultant for the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association&rsquo\;s building on Mott S treet (1959) and the On Leong Tong Merchant&rsquo\;s Association at Mott &a mp\; Canal Street (1948-50) &ndash\; the most prominent Chinese modern buil ding in Chinatown. Among his highly visible commissions\, Lee designed the Chinese-American WWII Monument in Kimlau Square (1962)\, a modernist take o n a traditional Chinese pailou\, or ceremonial gate\; the Lee Family Associ ation (ca. 1950)\; and the Pagoda Theatre (1963\, demolished).
