KT Tunstall w/Brian Lopez - NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts
September 24, 2013 - New York

KT Tunstall, live in concert and set to release her fifth album — a stunningly beautiful and personal collection titled Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon. Way out in the desert, KT Tunstall found herself. There she was, in cactus-country, Arizona, far from the adoptive London scene that provided the backdrop to four albums, 4 million sales, one Ivor Novello and one Brit Award, and further still from the Scottish folk heartland that had nurtured her. She was working with Giant Sand frontman Howe Gelb; maverick, desert punk spirit, a storied musician and producer. The pair were recording a set of songs that had bloomed into life, almost without Tunstall knowing it, and that foreshadowed two momentous events (the death of her father and the following month, her split from her musician husband) that would make summer 2012 a turning point in the 37-year-old singer/songwriter's life.

Internationally-renowned Baroque violinist, Juilliard Historical Performance artistic advisor and artist-in-residence Monica Huggett leads a program of select string quintets by Mozart and his colleague and friend, Czech composer Myslivecek. Upon programming these works, Ms. Huggett remarked, "it is generally accepted that the combination of two violins, two violas, and cello inspired Mozart to compose chamber music of paralleled beauty and depth...The string quintet was a relatively rare combination at that time, but Myslivecek composed some light-hearted pieces in that genre which may have sown the seed in Mozart's imagination."

James Turrell - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through September 25, 2013 - New York

James Turrell's first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980 focuses on the artist's groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special focus on the role of site-specificity in his practice. At its core is a major new project that recasts the Guggenheim rotunda as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light. One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, the installation reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic architecture -- its openness to nature, graceful curves, and magnificent sense of space -- as one of Turrell's Skyspaces, referencing in particular his magnum opus Roden Crater (1976-). Reorienting visitors' experiences of the rotunda from above to below, the exhibition gives form to the air and light occupying the museum's central void, proposing an entirely new experience of the building. Other works from throughout the artist's career will be displayed in the museum's Annex Level galleries, offering a complement and counterpoint to the new work in the rotunda. Organized in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, James Turrell comprises one-third of a major retrospective exhibition spanning the United States during summer 2013. This exhibition is curated by Carmen Gimenez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, with Nat Trotman, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Winged Tapestries: Moths at Large, an exhibition of 34 striking images featuring dramatic images of moths, opens at AMNH. On view in the IMAX Corridor on the first floor, the exhibition displays the arresting beauty and surprising diversity of moths from Ottawa-based photographer Jim des Rivières. "Moths are beautiful, and in many respects prettier than butterflies," says exhibition curator David Grimaldi, curator, Division of Invertebrate Zoology. "In this show, we have macro or relatively large moths. They're gorgeous." Primitive moths appeared about 195 million years ago, whereas the oldest butterfly fossil is about 55 million years old. And today, moths outnumber butterflies 15 to 1, with approximately 150,000 described species of moths worldwide, compared to 10,000 butterfly species.

Jack Goldstein x 10,000 - The Jewish Museum
Through September 29, 2013 - New York

The first American retrospective of the Canadian-born artist Jack Goldstein (1945 - 2003) brings to light his important legacy. A teaching assistant for the esteemed conceptual artist John Baldessari and a contemporary of such artists as Cindy Sherman, Sherrie Levine, Laurie Simmons, Barbara Kruger, David Salle and Robert Longo, Goldstein spent his creative years in New York and Southern California and became a central figure in the Pictures Generation of the 1970s and 80s. The artists of this generation explored a new stylistic vocabulary grounded in their interest in popular culture, appropriating images from books, magazines, advertisements, television, and film. This comprehensive exhibition frames Goldstein as a pivotal artist of his generation and showcases his influential paintings and films, while also including installations, ephemera, writings, and pioneering sound recordings. Goldstein transformed, restaged, and remade films in such a way as to strip out specific details, context, and function. Exhibition highlights include his celebrated film of a growling Metro-Goldwyn Mayer lion Another signature work is the film The Jump featuring a leaping diver, performing a somersault and disintegrating into fragments. Given Goldstein's legacy and his increasing relevance to younger artists, this long overdue retrospective is essential to a larger re-evaluation of post-1960s American art. Organized by the Orange County Museum of Art and guest-curated by Philipp Kaiser.

Through September 29, 2013 - Upper West Side

Featuring the work of 14 contemporary artists, this exhibition highlights artists' books inspired by the Hebrew Bible and other sacred Hebrew texts. The works on view underscore the relevance of the Bible to present-day book artists and emphasize how these artists garner personally and artistically resonant subject matter from the source materials. Some artists treat the texts as subjects—as inspiration for creating new volumes—while others treat them as objects to be physically altered. Still others explore the boundaries of the single printed page using ages-old techniques such as micrography, illumination, and papercutting.

Front Row: Chinese American Designers - Museum of Chinese in America
Through September 29, 2013 - New York

Front Row traces and celebrates the rise of Chinese American designers who decided to make their marks in New York. In the 1980s, designers such as Anna Sui, Yeohlee Teng, Vera Wang and Vivienne Tam emerged in the New York fashion scene just as the city was transforming its identity from a garment center into one of the fashion capitals of the world. Curiously, the growth of New York's Chinatown, the preponderance of Chinese manufacturers (tailors and seamstresses) in the city's garment district, and the increased outsourcing of garment manufacturing to China, occurred alongside the rapid growth of fashion's creative industries and a broader shift towards creative driven production in New York.

Much of its stock comes from local bakeries, farms and cheese mongers—a perfect fit for Bee Raw, who partners with family-owned apiaries across the country to obtain its raw, single varietal honey.
