Gifted: Collectors and Drawings at MoMA, 1929-1983 - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through February 13, 2012 - New York

This exhibition examines the history of MoMA's drawings collection through key gifts from donors whose connections with the Museum helped shape the institution from its earliest days. Lillie P. Bliss and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, founders of MoMA, gave numerous masterworks to the new museum, including some of its most prized drawings. In later decades bequests by influential collectors such as James Thrall Soby continued to augment the holdings of works by artists the Museum had already shown a commitment to, while other collections, like that of Joan and Lester Avnet, were formed with MoMA's needs specifically in mind. More idiosyncratic collections, such as Ruth Vollmer's bequest to the Museum, accepted in 1983, reflect the life and activities of individual art enthusiasts during key moments in art history. Gifted is a reevaluation of the drawings collection, reflecting not only the richness of MoMA's holdings, but also the diverse forces that have shaped it and the corresponding history it represents.

Scenes from Zagreb: Artists' Publications of the New Art Practice - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through February 17, 2012 - New York

The New Art Practice was a term created for a generation of artists in the former Yugoslavia active in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. These artists shifted their practice to spaces outside the traditional studio, onto city streets, into artist-run spaces, and in multimedia performances and experimental publications. Focusing on artists working in the city of Zagreb, this exhibition documents aspects of this shift and highlights the ability of artists' publications to record these often ephemeral gestures and ideas. While artists such as Goran Trbuljak, Braco Dimitrijevic, Sanja Ivekovic, Mladen Stilinovic, and Vlado Martek, among others, worked in a variety of mediums, they shared a common impulse to produce publications. These artists questioned and played with ideas about the place of an artist within this particular political and socioeconomic context. Their work often involved public participation and blurred traditional notions of authorship through collective activities, chance operations, and the appropriation of language and imagery from the state and commercial media. The materials in this installation resonate with other contemporaneous scenes in Eastern and Central Europe and with broader international trends, while also providing an insight into very local networks of experimental artists and writers in Zagreb.

Korean Eye: Energy and Matter - Museum of Arts & Design
Through February 19, 2012 -

Internationally-acclaimed exhibition Korean Eye: Energy and Matter, sponsored by Standard Chartered, shines a spotlight on new work by contemporary Korean artists. Korean Eye: Energy and Matter reflects a new era of diversity in Korean life, politics, and culture, and offers a unique opportunity for education and appreciation of Korea's rapidly developing art scene, which until recently has seen little global exposure. Korean Eye: Energy and Matter extends MAD's focus on materials and process in contemporary art and design by showcasing works of art in an astonishing range of materials, reflecting the ways in which Korean artists today are exploring techniques both traditional and innovative. Korean Eye: Energy and Matter offers an illuminating commentary on the philosophical and aesthetic conditions of modern Korean culture, from virtual reality and the pervasive influence of fantasy and pop culture to the dehumanization inherent in a post-industrial society. By turns ironic, satirical, and metaphorical, the exhibition includes photo-sculptures by Seung Hyo Jang; embroidery and acrylic paintings by Young In Hong; a large, imposing shark fabricated from reclaimed and repurposed automobile tires by Yong Ho Ji; and Meekyoung Shin's astonishing "antique" porcelain vases, rendered in soap.

Rather Unique - Woodward Gallery
Through February 19, 2012 -

New for 2012, Woodward Gallery invites Harlem-based street Artist Royce Bannon as their first-ever guest curator for an exhibition with rather unique art. This exhibition will highlight a group of trendsetting artists who stand out in street and graffiti genres. The artists include: Cassius Fowler, Celso, Chris RWK, Cope2, Darkcloud, H.veng.Smith, Indie184, infinity, KA, Keely, Kenji Nakayama, Kosbe, Matt Siren, Moody, Nose Go, Royce B, Russell King, UR New York, Veng, and Wrona. While how they each create differs, they are commonly driven to share art with their peers without-constraints. This public focus has afforded the group to experiment and redefine their creativity with instant feedback and inspiration from colleagues. Bannon selected these few for their resolve and commitment. They have worked obsessively over the years to get their public art recognized. Each one of them has a rather unique style that I really can't compare to any one else's. If I mention a Darkcloud, a Matt Siren, or a Cope2 you know exactly what I'm talking about- even if you're not into the scene- you can see their (iconic) images in your head...Everyone does wheat paste, and stickers, or (tag) throw ups, but this group of artists...make what they do really pop. Woodward Gallery acknowledges these most contemporary of artists and their contribution to the new world of art.

Berlin-based artist Haris Epaminonda (b. 1980, Nicosia, Cyprus) is internationally known for her photographic assemblages constructed from books and magazines of the 1950s and 1960s, and for her video installations, in which film and television footage culled from Greek soap operas, are reshot or re-edited in new sequences with a single soundtrack that provides an acoustic link. This exhibition presents Epaminonda's three-channel video installation Tarahi IIII, V, VI (2007), part of an ongoing series that enlists the use of reverse shooting, montage, cuts, superimposition, and repetition of motifs to address the permeability of memory. Favoring a slowed-down, filmic flow and the lush colors one associates with the saturated hues of Douglas Sirk's melodramas, these enigmatic videos are presented in a new installation involving sculptural and architectural structures—columns, pedestals, drapery, and niches—specifically conceived for the space at MoMA. The exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of the Projects series, which has played a critical part in the Museum's contemporary art programs.

'Resourced: The Influence of Photography in Contemporary Art' - Lyons Wier Gallery
Through February 25, 2012 - New York

Artists’ Reception: Thursday February 2nd (6-8pm) Nearest subway: C,E @ 23rd St & 8th Ave Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to present Resourced, an exhibition of eight contemporary artists who use photography to create and sometimes inspire their art making. Each artist appropriates certain aspects and assets afforded by the camera, creating work that is referential but independent in spirit. The featured artists are: Ryan Bradley, Mary Henderson, David Lyle, Tim Okamura, Fahamu Pecou, James Rieck, Aristides Ruiz, and Cayce Zavaglia. Although the advent of the Daguerreotype utilized and revolutionized the principles of the camera obscura by capturing images in the early nineteenth century, the use of the camera obscura as a preparatory tool for artists dates as far back as the Renaissance when in 1490, Leonardo da Vinci wrote the first detailed description of the camera obscura in his “Atlantic Codex.” Resourced presents a contemporary look at the influences and inspiration borne from the platforms of photography, ranging from found vernacular photography to self-portraiture. Collectively, the exhibition reveals the inexhaustible possibilities of how an artist can appropriate and re-contextualize a photographic image into a distinct conceptual perspective through various other media. The artists’ methodology of capturing a moment or finding inspiration is as subjective as their aesthetic point of view. Some artists choose to take a traditional approach by staging studio shoots that generate self-produced photographs open for creative transformation. This can be seen in Ryan Bradley’s digitally manipulated shots of muse Adi Neumann that result in ornate hand drawn deconstructions of the female figure, Fahamu Pecou’s painted self-portrait that evolves into a parody of contemporary media, Cayce Zavaglia’s intimate and striking portrait of her daughter, Abbi, that becomes a painstaking hand stitched embroidery on canvas, and Tim Okamura’s expressive and provocative oil portrait of friends that he intuitively situates within urban environments of New York and its surrounding boroughs. Others artists seize captured moments from the past and present for re-contextualization, thereby transforming the original source material via personal and societal prisms into another place and time. David Lyle’s use of found vernacular prints and vintage photographs are cleverly reimaged and redefined within our contemporary zeitgeist, executed in his limited use of only black paint. Mary Henderson’s oil paintings source images from photo-sharing websites that she alters compositionally into an intentional public image executed in paramount technical detail. Aristides Ruiz’s hyperrealist ballpoint drawings metamorphose extracted shots of animated New York streets into baffling renderings of urban life. And finally, James Rieck’s appropriation of commercial advertising into deliberately cropped photo-realist paintings truncates contemporary culture to its essence. As Lyons Wier Gallery specializes in “conceptual realism”, the common ground shared in Resourced is the realist platform that photography allows and the conceptual leap the artist affords.

Greg Haberny: 'Prelude to Mommy's Little Monster' - Lyons Wier Gallery
Through February 25, 2012 - New York

GREG HABERNY SOLO INSTALLATION Prelude to Mommy’s Little Monster February 2 – 25, 2012 Opening Reception: Thursday February 2nd, 2012 6-8pm Lyons Wier Gallery 542 West 24th St., New York, NY 10011 Gallery Hours: Tues - Sat, 11-6pm Nearest subway: C,E @ 23rd St & 8th Ave. Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to feature a special installation in the back gallery space by New York artist Greg Haberny entitled Mommy's Little Monster. The presentation is a prelude to his forthcoming solo exhibition at Lyons Wier Gallery this October. Mommy's Little Monster is a psychedelic glimpse into the wonderfully psychotic world of installation artist Greg Haberny. This particular installation draws direct inspiration from the artist's personal recollections of his childhood. The artist exhumes and examines his "'dysfunctional'" childhood, embracing the plethora of influences from his teen years growing up in suburbia during the 1970-80s. Haberny brutishly expresses his observations by constructing three dimensional metaphors dealing with his own personal issues, including but not limited to: chaos, disorder, anxiety, imperfection, awkwardness, madness, punk rock, guns, attending Catholic school, porn, drinking, drugs, excessive therapy, his cat that his brother shot, dyslexia, isolation, baseball, rabbits, hallucinations, abuse, sinner vs saint, Martin Scorsese, independent cult film, toys, AND girls, girls...GIRLS!
