The Dream Continues: Photographs of Martin Luther King Murals by Vergara - New-York Historical Society
Through May 05, 2013 - New York

Since the 1970s Camilo Vergara has been traveling across the United States photographing and thus documenting hand-painted murals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as they appeared on the walls of establishments such as car repair shops, barbershops, and fast food restaurants in city streets and alley ways. The folk art portraits have expressed how the inner-city residents saw the slain civil rights leader--at times a statesman, a hero, a visionary, or a martyr. Vergara also discovered that these images were often based on iconic photographs of Dr. King but that, depending upon the neighborhood where they were created, the portraits could take on the likeness of Latinos, Native Americans, or Asians.

Through May 05, 2013 - New York

This retrospective exhibition traces the development of Chim's career as an intellectually engaged photojournalist, placing his life and work in the broader context of 1930s-50s photography and European politics. Born Dawid Szymin in Warsaw, Chim (who after WWII published under the name David Seymour) began his career in 1933 photographing for leftist magazines in Paris. In 1936, along with his friends Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, Chim traveled to Spain to photograph the civil war in support of the Republican side, publishing regularly in all the major European and American picture magazines. Chim was an astute observer of 20th-century European political affairs, workers' rights, and culture, from the beginnings of the antifascist struggle to the rebuilding of countries ravaged by World War II. The exhibition will showcase over 120 mainly vintage black-and white and color prints, publications in which his work originally appeared, contact sheets, and personal material. The exhibition is organized by ICP Curator Cynthia Young.

Be Green Kids Spring 2013 Consignment Sale - Mapleton Catering Facility at Good Counsel
Through May 05, 2013 - White Plains

A consignment event is a 4-day event in rented space, set up just like a store, where parents from all over sell their outgrown, gently used kids items for 50-90% off retail prices. Clothes, toys, books, DVDs, equipment (high chairs, strollers, bath equipment), nursery furniture (activity centers, pack 'n' plays) and much, much more! By offering a safe setting for parents to buy and sell gently used children's items, the sale participants hope to reduce the impact their little ones have on the environment, as well as reduce the impact on their wallets. The recycling movement has gathered plenty of momentum in recent years. Resources are being reclaimed, and fewer items are entering our landfills. However, there is still so much to be done. At the Be Green Kids Consignment events, top-quality, new and gently used items are resold from parent to parent at a fraction of the original price, thereby reducing the effect that the production and disposal of these items has on the environment. Being a seller or a buyer at these events, lets parents be green in two ways, saving the environment AND saving money!

Projects 99: Meiro Koizumi - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through May 06, 2013 - New York

Working in video and performance, Meiro Koizumi (Japanese, b. 1976) has built a compelling body of work that deals with power dynamics on scales from the familial to the national, and examines questions of political and psychological control. Implicating himself, his performers, and the viewer through choreographed emotional manipulations, Koizumi creates works that straddle the uncomfortable and indefinable line between cruelty and comedy. His first solo museum presentation in the United States, Projects 99 includes a selection of earlier projects, as well as Defect in Vision (2011), Meiro's most ambitious and accomplished project to date. Probing the idea of blindness -- both philosophical and physical -- the piece is projected on two sides of a single screen, preventing the viewer from taking in both views at once. The action follows two performers who repeatedly enact a domestic scene set during World War II. While staged in the historical past, the scene's portent of impending catastrophe has taken on a new relevance following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in a work that is incisive, thought-provoking, and visually lush.

Gutai: Splendid Playground - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through May 08, 2013 - New York

As part of the Guggenheim's Asian Art Program, the museum presents North America's first museum exhibition devoted to Gutai, the most influential artists' collective and artistic movement in postwar Japan and one of the most important international avant-garde movements of the 1950s and 1960s. Organized thematically and chronologically to explore Gutai's inventive approach to materials, process, and performativity, the exhibition explores the group's radical experimentation across a range of media and styles and demonstrates how individual artists pushed the limits of what art could be in a postatomic age. The spectrum of works includes painting, experimental performance and film, indoor and outdoor installation art, sound art, interactive or "playful" art, light art, and Kinetic art. The exhibition comprises some 120 objects by 25 artists on loan from museum and private collections in Japan, the United States, and Europe, and offers new scholarship, especially on so-called late Gutai works that date from 1965 to 1972. Gutai: Splendid Playground is organized by Ming Tiampo, Associate Professor of Art History, Carleton University, Ottawa, and Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. This exhibition is supported in part by The Japan Foundation and the Dedalus Foundation, Inc. The Leadership Committee for Gutai: Splendid Playground is gratefully acknowledged for its support.
