Wolfgang Laib - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through March 11, 2013 - Midtown

Wolfgang Laib's Pollen from Hazelnut will inhabit the Museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, infusing the space with a yellow luminosity. Laib perceives the Marron Atrium as the Museum's inner sanctum, its womb, and has created this work especially for the site. It will be the artist's largest pollen installation to date, measuring approximately 18 x 21 feet. The hazelnut pollen that will be used in MoMA's installation has been collected by Laib from the natural environment around his home and studio, in a small village in southern Germany, since the mid-1990s. Since the mid-1970s, Laib (German, b. 1950) has been producing sculptures and installations marked by a serene presence and a reductive beauty. These works are often made from one or a combination of two materials, accumulated from natural elements -- such as milk, marble, pollen, rice, and beeswax -- which have been selected for their purity and symbolic associations. Forging a singular path for more than 30 years, Laib amplifies the intrinsic materials and processes found in nature. Laib has stated that "pollen is the potential beginning of the life of the plant. It is as simple, as beautiful, and as complex as this. And of course it has so many meanings. I think everybody who lives knows that pollen is important."

Cities in Crisis: Ecological Transformations - Cooper Union- The Great Hall
March 11, 2013 - New York

On the other hand, they can be graveyards of dreams and sources of contamination. In Cities In Crisis: Ecological Transformations, six lectures at The Cooper Union, Dr. Steward Pickett, past President of the Ecological Society of America and a plant ecologist with the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will present an integrated view of cities from an ecological perspective and explore the frontiers of promoting the transformation of a more sustainable urban trajectory. February 11: Globalization and the Changing City - What is urbanism? What is urban from an ecological perspective? How is the urban reality evolving in a global era? What is the nature of contemporary urban crisis? How can that crisis be met as an opportunity? February 18: Cities as Ecosystems - How do ecologists think about cities? What ecological processes occur in cities? What’s wrong with the idea of open space in cities? February 25: Natural Disturbance and the City - How common is natural disturbance in the urban context? What is the nature of natural hazard in cities? How does this play out in terms of social and other kinds of vulnerability? March 4: From Sanitary to Sustainable City - How did the “sanitary city” solve social and environmental problems? What are the limits to the sanitary strategy? How does the sustainable city envision solving the problems of the sanitary city, or even of cities that are created from scratch? March 11: Ecology for Urban Design - What does ecology have to say to urban design? What ecological principles underwrite ecological urban design? How do the ethics of sustainability shape ecological application in cities? March 18: A Land Ethic for the Urban Era - Does Aldo Leopold’s ethical viewpoint apply to cities?

Rex Reed of The New York Observer calls her "the real deal, the surviving artist of the American popular singer." Infusing the rhythm and syncopation of the legendary jazz greats with the power and brashness of a Broadway belter, this legendary vocalist's MAYE-den Voyage at 54 Below will feature a program of jazz and Broadway standards not to be missed.

Matisse: In Search of True Painting - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through March 17, 2013 - New York

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the most acclaimed artists working in France during the first half of the twentieth century. The critic Clement Greenberg, writing in The Nation in 1949, called him a "self-assured master who can no more help painting well than breathing." Unbeknownst to many, painting had rarely come easily to Matisse. Throughout his career, he questioned, repainted, and reevaluated his work. He used his completed canvases as tools, repeating compositions in order to compare effects, gauge his progress, and, as he put it, "push further and deeper into true painting." While this manner of working with pairs, trios, and series is certainly not unique to Matisse, his need to progress methodically from one painting to the next is striking. Matisse: In Search of True Painting presents this particular aspect of Matisse's painting process by showcasing forty-nine vibrantly colored canvases. For Matisse, the process of creation was not simply a means to an end but a dimension of his art that was as important as the finished canvas.

Harmony Korine Retrospective - Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 22, 2013 - Astoria

Director, screenwriter, and artist Harmony Korine has developed an aesthetic as unique and bracing as any that launched in the heyday of 1990s American independent film. Korine made his name as the screenwriter of the nihilistic-teen movie Kids, but came into his own as a director with the 1997 feature debut, Gummo. From March 8 through 22, 2013, Museum of the Moving Image will present a retrospective of all of Korine's five feature films to date, including his latest, Spring Breakers—a triumph at both the Toronto and Venice film festivals. Harmony Korine will appear in person with the Museum's preview screening of Spring Breakers on Tuesday, March 12, at 7pm, participating in a conversation moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz after the film. Korine's latest is a high-concept pulp-fest featuring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine as co-eds who perform a catalogue of illegal and incendiary activities in order to get out of their boring small town for spring break. Also starring James Franco, the film opens theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on March 15 (nationwide on March 22), released by A24 Films. In addition to Spring Breakers (2013) and Gummo (1997), the Museum retrospective includes Mister Lonely (2007), Korine's largest production to date and which features art cinema luminaries Diego Luna, Werner Herzog, Denis Lavant, and Samantha Morton cast as celebrity impersonators; the critically acclaimed Julien Donkey-boy (1999); and the cult hit Trash Humpers (2009), which film critic J. Hoberman called a "gloriously desultory slap in the face of public taste." Together, these films reveal the eccentricities as well as the depth of one of the most compellingly divisive directors working today.
