Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 15, 2013 - New York

In 1912, in several European cities, a handful of artists -- Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Francis Picabia, and Robert Delaunay -- presented the first abstract pictures to the public. Inventing Abstraction, 1910-25 celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork, tracing the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. The exhibition brings together many of the most influential works in abstraction's early history and covers a wide range of artistic production, including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, films, photographs, sound poems, atonal music, and non-narrative dance, to draw a cross-media portrait of these watershed years.

Bed - St. Michael's Recital Hall
April 15, 2013 - New York

BED is about the misplacement of memories, uncovering them and then letting them go again. Jack and Violet have been married for 57 years and they have been sleeping in the same bed for just as long. Now they’re stuck in it and have to find a way down – if they don’t tear each other apart first. Together, by reliving some of the most painful moments in their marriage, they rediscover their partnership or find it for the first time. They play, they dance, they chase, make love and war with each other on the bed. Will they ever get down from their bed or are they too settled in their ways to adapt? Playwright Daniel Kwiatkowski is a writer/musician/actor originally from Northern Michigan. BED is Daniel's third full-length play and he is so excited to be working with Royal Family Productions. In 2009 Daniel was an artist in residence with Mabou Mines and wrote and performed in the performance piece titled Thirst. In 2011 he was selected for a three-week fellowship in Spoleto, Italy for playwriting under the Anna Mahler Foundation. Daniel is a founding member of Semi-Theatre Company. He is currently working on a collection of short stories about Northern Michigan and Daniel is a very proud member of the Roots/Americana/Desert Rock group The Hollows who are releasing their live album Neverending Show on April 23rd.

American Museum of Natural History’s Sackler Brain Bench: Why We Eat What We Eat - American Museum of Natural History
April 15, 2013 - New York City

The American Museum of Natural History presents the Sackler Brain Bench: Why We Eat What We Eat, an intimate, conversational, salon-style series, where participants explore the science, psychology, and social norms that shape their food choices. The four-session program, with each session led by different experts, helps attendees examine concepts in an open forum that includes taste tests and exclusive after-hours tours of the Our Global Kitchen exhibition. Participants will come away with a better understanding of what drives the decisions they make about the food they eat. Wine and light snacks will be served at each session. • April 15: Renowned pastry chef Roy Shvartzapel, of two Michelin-star Cyrus, in Northern California, and formerly of Bouley Bakery, el Bulli, Bouchon, and Pierre Herme, and neuroscientist Moran Cerf, Ph.D., of New York University and the California Institute of Technology, lead a discussion about how personal expectations of taste shape our food choices. The program includes tastings and a visit to the Our Global Kitchen exhibition. Topics to be discussed include tricks of the mind and tongue, how a restaurant server can influence decision making, and how restaurant ambiance and environment affect eating enjoyment. • April 22: Neuroscientist Joy Hirsch, Ph.D., of Columbia University discusses recent findings and new insights related to obesity and weight loss based on brain-imaging research. • April 29: Neuroscientist Stuart Firestein, Ph.D., and sociologist Priscilla Ferguson, Ph.D., converse about what our food choices can tell us about the brain and society. Themes to be discussed include the distinction between taste and flavor; the causes of food fears and aversions—nature, nurture, or both?—as well as the biology and sociology of food memories, and why some memories remain strong even decades after the foods were first encountered. • May 6: Drew Ramsey, MD, of Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons and Amy Bentley, Ph.D., of the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at NYU discuss the societal and health implications of food choices.

RISE - Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

RISE is an opera-infused play intertwining the tale of Rome's most infamous anarchist Emperor with the extravagant ambition of four modern-day misfits. In a decaying Roman Empire, debauchery and ruthlessness are de rigueur, but Boy-King Elagabalus's excesses and flagrant disregard for religious tradition and sexual taboos shocks even the most callous citizens. Placed on the throne by the conniving machinations of his mother and grandmother, Elagabalus marries a sacred Vestal Virgin, skewers the national religion, and flaunts his exploits with men and women of all classes. On the outskirts of LA, aspirations run high. Brick Richards has been a top player in porn for ten years, and his manager Myrna Malone desperately wants to convince him to transition to mainstream movies before his star fades. Myrna's assistant Glenn wants something different from Brick: a great, sweeping romance to make life complete. Glenn's roommate Mia doesn't care about sweeping romances, she just wants to achieve her dream of launching the next big cosmetics line, and maybe Myrna or Brick can make that happen? Through human history, one conflict is timeless: when personal ambition eclipses all other considerations, crossed desires lead to double crossing.

The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 21, 2013 - Midtown

This exhibition, covering the period from 1910 to today, offers a critical reassessment of photography's role in the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde movements -- with a special emphasis on the medium's relation to Dada, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Constructivism, New Objectivity, Conceptual, and Post-Conceptual art -- and in the development of contemporary artistic practices. The shaping of what came to be known as "New Vision" photography bore the obvious influence of "lens-based" and "time-based" works. El Lissitzky best summarized its ethos: "The new world will not need little pictures," he wrote in The Conquest of Art (1922). "If it needs a mirror, it has the photograph and the cinema." Bringing together over 250 works from MoMA's collection, the exhibition features major projects by Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Gerhard Ruhm, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, and Walid Raad, among others. Photographic history is presented as a multivalent history of distinct "new visions," rooted in unconventional and innovative exercises that range from photograms and photomontages to experimental films and photobooks.

Zarina: Paper Like Skin - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through April 21, 2013 - New York

The exhibition Zarina: Paper Like Skin, organized by Allegra Pesenti, Curator, Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, travels to the Guggenheim Museum as part of its international tour. This retrospective of Indian-born American artist Zarina Hashmi is the first major exploration of the artist's career, charting a developmental arc from her work in the 1960s to the present and includes many seminal works from the late 1960s and early 1970s, woodblock prints, etchings and lithographs, and a small selection of related sculptures in bronze and cast paper. The Guggenheim's recent acquisition of 20 works from a major series of pin drawings from 1975 to 1977 serves as a fulcrum for the New York presentation, which is conceived in close collaboration with the artist. An exhibition catalogue provides insights into her life and work. The New York presentation is organized by Sandhini Poddar, Associate Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Assembled by the New York connoisseur Wheelock Whitney between 1972 and 2000, this collection reveals a rich tradition of painting out of doors nearly a century before Impressionism, thus amplifying the role of the natural world as a source of inspiration to artists on the cusp of the modern epoch.

Kandinsky 1911-1913 - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through April 25, 2013 - New York

Perhaps more than any other 20th-century painter, Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) has been closely linked to the history of the Guggenheim Museum. Hilla Rebay--artist, art advisor, and the museum's first director--promoted nonobjective painting above all other forms of abstraction. She was particularly inspired by the work and writing of Kandinsky, a pioneer of abstraction, who believed that the task of the painter was to convey his own inner world, rather than imitate the natural world. The museum's holdings have grown to include more than 150 works by Kandinsky, and focused exhibitions of his works are presented in the Kandinsky Gallery on Annex Level 3. The current installation, Kandinsky 1911-1913, highlights paintings completed at the moment the artist made great strides toward complete abstraction and published his aesthetic treatise, On the Spiritual in Art (1911, though dated 1912). Also featured are paintings by Robert Delaunay and Franz Marc that were exhibited alongside the work of Kandinsky and others in the landmark 1912 Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) exhibition held at the Moderne Galerie Heinrich Thannhauser in Munich.

Benjamin Swett - New York City of Trees - Arsenal Gallery
Through April 26, 2013 - New York

We know that trees improve living conditions in cities by filtering and cooling the air, absorbing excess rainwater, and making neighborhoods more attractive.

In this collection of personal narratives, historical observations, and color photographs, Benjamin Swett focuses on trees with stories to tell, adding a warm and welcome outlook that is unique to the city and its cosmopolitan character. The stories of these trees from all five boroughs -- some dating back to the Revolutionary era and before -- link the living with the past in an unusual, engaging way.

Hirali Sawa - Figment - James Cohan Gallery
Through April 27, 2013 - New York

Hiraki Sawa does not try to recover that which has been forgotten, but rather investigates the aftermath of forgetting -- a dreamlike state in which the usual rules of cause and effect are suspended, and new imaginative possibilities take root."

The opening of Ed Ruscha Books & Co. will coincide with the release of MIT Press's Various Small Books: Referencing Small Books by Ed Ruscha (2013) and will feature over one hundred artist books by Ruscha and numerous others, showcasing Ruscha's lasting impact along with those he has inspired.

Erwin Olaf - Berlin - Hasted Kraeutler
Through April 27, 2013 - New York

A new series of photographs by Erwin Olaf set in the capital of Germany. The series, composed of scenes and portraits, allude to a painful past in a photographed present, while self portraits of Olaf reflect an aging future. A selection of photographs from the series have been produced as carbon prints. Carbon printing, a traditional 19th century printing method with strong ties to Dutch art history, is an extremely time consuming and arduous process using pigments. Olaf sought out one of the only Carbon printers still working in the Netherlands, Kees Brandenburg, and together they combined contemporary technique, with 19th century methods to produce an unrivaled 21st century version of the Carbon print. Erwin Olaf's Keyhole series will also be on view, which alludes to the strong emotions of shame and humiliation. The photographs are accompanied by a installation where the viewer can look through the keyholes of two doors, and depending which view they choose, experience a sentiment of either happiness or shame. The Keyhole exhibition was honored as one of the highlights during Arco Madrid 2012.
