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.

The Sunnyside Piano Academy was founded by director Evan Mazunik in 2012 with the mission to demolish boredom in music. "I have a knack for inspiring students who are ready to quit music to fall in love with music all over again," said Mazunik. "I passionately believe that every student can discover music that speaks to them and inspires them to stretch and grow." "Whenever I see that a student has 'checked out' and is not engaged with their piano studies, I am inspired to discover the one thing that can reignite their interest, whether it's Chopin, Miles Davis, or video game theme songs. As soon as my students reconnect with the spark of their own creativity, I am instantly elated and reminded why I love to teach."

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.

Alan Gussow: Interrupted Spring - Driscoll Babcock Galleries
Through May 11, 2013 - New York

DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Interrupted Spring, an exhibition of oil paintings and works on paper by Alan Gussow (1931-1997), which captures the energy of natural environment through a lively synthesis of abstract expressionism and realism, presenting a profound and poetic artistic vision. Gussow's unique imagery conveys the intimate link between man and the environment, invoking his personal encounters with the smells, sounds, tastes, and tactile sensations of nature. "His paintings are elegant, joyous, celebratory and occasionally elegiac representations of the world he treasured and embraced, the world of natural phenomena," notes John Driscoll, president of Driscoll Babcock. With nature as his muse, Gussow sought to reconcile his perceptual experiences and transform them into persuasive visual expression. Many works in this exhibition --Interrupted Spring (1975), Vegetable Garden in a March Rain (1975) and Edges of A Delayed Spring (1987) -- reflect Gussow's intuitive awareness of the shifting colors and textures of the changing seasons, as thawing frost and spring rain make way for a lush explosion of buds and greenery. The rich color associations and fluctuating brushstrokes in these works suggest a dynamic shift in focus from the panorama towards the detail, and a new emphasis on the rhythm, color, and texture of the productive earth.

Degas, Miss La La, and the Cirque Fernando - Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 12, 2013 - New York

For several successive evenings in January 1879, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) attended performances at the Cirque Fernando by one of the most famous circus performers of his time, an aerialist known as Miss La La. For her extraordinary act, Miss La La was slowly hoisted nearly seventy feet into the circus's domed roof, suspended solely from a rope clenched between her teeth. Degas produced a number of studies of the performer and the circus building--drawings, pastels, and an oil sketch--before creating his celebrated painting, Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando. The exhibition brings together for the first time Degas's remarkable painting, on loan from the National Gallery, London, and nearly all of the related preparatory works. Also on view will be images of the Cirque Fernando by Degas's contemporaries, photographs of Miss La La and her troupe, and posters and other printed material.

My paintings are an amalgamation of who I am."

The Panoramic River: the Hudson and the Thames - Hudson River Museum
Through May 19, 2013 - Yonkers

In the late 18th century, British artists developed the large-scale panorama, which became a popular form of entertainment in Europe and the United States. The Hudson River Museum's exhibition, "The Panoramic River: the Hudson and the Thames," explores the panoramic vista as the ideal expression for a new, all-embracing way of seeing the landscape that influenced how the public and artists perceived it as well. By the early 19th century, painters such as Robert Havell Jr. worked to express this panoramic perspective in their choice and depiction of vistas. Havell and other artists in the exhibition such as Thomas Cole, Jasper Cropsey, and John Kensett, favored the chain of cities, suburbs, and countryside along these two rivers, where horizontal planes and historical associations gave form to both artistic and cultural expression. "The Panoramic River" features loans from museums, galleries, and private collections. Museums lending paintings include: Baltimore Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Fenimore Art Museum, The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College; Maryland State Archives; Metropolitan Museum of Art; The New-York Historical Society; and Princeton University Art Museum. "The Panoramic River" is organized by Hudson River Museum co-curators Bartholomew Bland, Director of Curatorial Affairs, and Laura Vookles, Chief Curator of Collections. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with additional essays by Pat Hardy, Curator of Paintings, Prints and Drawings, Museum of London, and Geoff Snell, Doctoral Student, University of Sussex and the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England. The exhibition and the accompanying catalogue have been made possible by a generous grant from the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Inc. On view through May 19, 2013.
