Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 38th Annual Concert - Theater for the New City
February 02, 2013 - East Village

Thunderbird American Indian Dancers will hold their 38th annual Dance Concert and Pow Wow at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, from January 25 to February 3, 2013. The troupe's appearances benefit college funds for needy Native American students. The company's Pow-Wows have been presented annually as a two-week event by TNC since 1976, with the box office donated to these funds. There will be dances, stories and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northwest Coast, the Southwest, the Plains, and the Arctic regions. Between 15 and 20 dancers will assemble for the event. Highlights will include Storytelling, a Hoop Dance, a Caribou Dance (from the Inuit people of Alaska), a Buffalo Dance (from the Hopi people), a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance (from the Northern Plains people), a Stomp Dance (from the Southeastern tribes), and a Shawl Dance (from the Oklahoma tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance, a friendship dance. After matinees, the cast will remain in the theater to personally meet the children attending and be photographed with them. This component of the show was inspired by the troupe's school residencies. A Pow-Wow is more than just a spectator event: it is a joyous reunion for native peoples nationwide and an opportunity for the non-Indian community to voyage into the philosophy and beauty of Native culture. Traditionally a gathering and sharing of events, Pow-Wows have come to include spectacular dance competitions, exhibitions, and enjoyment of traditional foods. Pageantry is an important component of the event, and all participants are elaborately dressed. Most dances are performed in the traditional Circle, which represents a unity of peoples. There is a wealth of cultural information encoded in the movements of each dance. More than ten distinct tribes will be represented in the performance. Throughout the performance, all elements are explained in depth through detailed introductions by the troupe's Director and Emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago). An educator, Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American craft items will be displayed in the TNC lobby. The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers are the oldest resident Native American dance company in New York. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women, all New Yorkers, who were descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago and San Blas tribes. Some were in school at the time; all were "first generation," meaning that their parents had been born on reservations. They founded the troupe to keep alive the traditions, songs and dances they had learned from their parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York and some who were passing through. Within three or four years, they were traveling throughout the continental U.S., expanding and sharing their repertoire and gleaning new dances on the reservations. (A number of Thunderbird members are winners of Fancy Dance contests held on reservations, where the standard of competition is unmistakably high.) Members of the Thunderbirds range in professions from teachers to hospital patient advocates, tree surgeons and computer engineers. The Thunderbird-TNC collaboration began in 1975, when Crystal Field directed a play called "The Only Good Indian." For research, Ms. Field lived on a Hopi reservation for three weeks. In preparation for the project, she met Louis Mofsie, and they made plans for a Pow Wow to celebrate the Winter Solstice. The event has continued annually to this day.

Furthermore, La Plenópera educates audiences on the cultural origins of historical and musical expressions of Puerto Rico, while making them laugh out load. A young boy has an immense problem: his gluttony! He eats everything! But, what's even worse, his mother Doña Suncha, ignores his behavior. One day, the boy suffers a severe bellyache, and in turn, his mother calls the Doctor. Once at the Hospital, the Doctor takes care of the boy and realizes it is necessary to reprimand Doña Suncha for letting him eat whatever he wants. He also says it is necessary to "operate" on the boy in order to treat his condition. Hearing this, Doña Suncha, now desperate, visits Josefina, a woman from the neighborhood who specializes in finding cures for all kinds of sicknesses through non-traditional forms of medicine. Josefina joins the Doctor and the towns people in a joint effort to fool Doña Suncha into thinking that all of the items (sewing machine, a pair of shoes, a whole pig and chicken, etc.) taken out of her son are the actual items he ate. At the end of the story, everyone lets Doña Suncha in on why they fooled her. Both Doña Suncha and the boy learn their lessons, and thus "Plenópera" ends on a happy note!

Featuring an innovative staging that integrates musicians directly into the action, Brook's tender production—fresh from sold-out runs in Paris and London—makes Themba's tightly crafted fable sing. A hummed "Strange Fruit," African melodies, and Schubert lieder thicken the air of this apartheid-era summer in which a shared wound was not allowed to heal.

Museum as Hub: Walking Drifting Dragging - New Museum
Through February 03, 2013 - New York

"Walking Drifting Dragging" is a one-month-long presentation of works by four emerging artists/collectives: Eunji Cho (Seoul), Ellie Ga (New York), Paulo Nazareth (Belo Horizonte, Brazil), and Mriganka Madhukaillya and Sonal Jain of Desire Machine Collective (Guwahati, India). The artists share a common preoccupation with walking, roaming, and drifting--moving slowly, close to the ground--and documenting their travels within highly personal terms that blend cartography with memory. All four have embarked on epic journeys, such as crossing an entire continent on foot or floating through the darkness of the Arctic for months--each one motivated by a different impulse or political perspective. Collectively, the artists work against contemporary notions of immediacy and access in a globalized world where any data point appears to be a search away and other cultures can seem legible with a quick round-trip. Their works dramatize distance between countries and cultures, across borders and time zones, to demonstrate how layered and complex a local stretch of terrain can be. "Walking Drifting Dragging" is presented in collaboration with the Museum as Hub and organized by Lauren Cornell, Curator of the 2015 Triennial, Digital Projects, and Museum as Hub.

Through February 03, 2013 - new york

DREAMGIRLS is a musical based on the show business aspirations and successes of renowned R&B acts: The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown and others. The musical is a classic, "rags to riches" tale of three young African American female singers who begin as innocents and ultimately triumph over jealousies, deceptions and a ruthless music industry. The Harlem Repertory Theatre presents an intimate chamber version of DREAMGIRLS with a cast of 10 that will be performed in the heart of Harlem. The twelve-time AUDELCO-nominated Harlem Repertory Theatre is continuing its 2012-2013 season with an encore performance of its well reviewed production of Dreamgirls, performed as an intimate chamber version of the classic R&B musical drama. Ten talented actor/singers bring this dazzling rags to riches story to life in two settings: Act One will be played in the proscenium theatre at the 133rd Street Arts Center, while Act Two will be performed in the semi round with the actors performing onstage and around the audience. Two-time AUDELCO winner, Keith Lee Grant, directed and choreographed the production. Mr. Grant shifts the focus of this iconic musical from flashy sets and costumes to the moment-to-moment emotional development of the characters: from aspiring novices in the 1960s R&B music industry to highly polished –albeit somewhat jaded- international stars.

'Childlike Innocence' - Able Fine Art NY Gallery
Through February 12, 2013 - New York

Able Fine Art NY Gallery is pleased to present the work by Su-Jin Lim, a young Korean artist currently residing in New York City. As a Pop artist of a new generation of Asian painters, Su-Jin Lim approaches art as a mode of self expression through acrylic painting and mixed media printed on canvas. The subjects of her paintings revolve around young girls and whimsical animals with exaggerated eyes and features. Her paintings are characteristic in their vibrant and bright color scheme and embellishments of clothing and bowties. However her pieces depict multiple layers of emotion with the addition of flames and tears to the faces and heads of her forms. Her focus is to convey emotion through more simplified peoples and beings that are reminiscent of Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. Su-Jin’s paintings are drawn with simple features such as two dots for the nostrils and a curved line for the mouth. Her emphasis is on feeling and a certain sensitivity and sophistication. Her art is childlike by creating a world rejecting adult life and addressing a discomfort in the older, however it is not naive. The tears or flames dominate the emotion of her imagery, in her words “People are not computers. They have emotions and need emotional recognition.” Her work creates a world of childlike innocence that drives the audience to an emotional response. Her images reflect the hardships of life through colorful details and depictions of simple vulnerabilities.

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."

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.

Mirrored Images: Realism in the 19th and 20th Centuries - Heckscher Museum of Art
Through March 24, 2013 - Huntington

This exhibition, drawn entirely from the Museum's Permanent Collection, explores the various realist movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, beginning with the mid-19th century Barbizon movement in France and the concurrent Hudson River School in America, and progressing through later 19th-century realism and 20th-century movements, such as the Ashcan School, American Scene painting, Magic Realism, Photorealism, and East End (Long Island) realism.

Sinister Pop - Whitney Museum of American Art
Through March 31, 2013 - New York

Sinister Pop presents an inventive take on the Museum's rich and diverse holdings of Pop art from the movement's inception in the early 1960s through its aftershocks a decade later. Although Pop art often calls to mind a celebration of postwar consumer culture, this exhibition focuses on Pop's darker side, as it distorts and critiques the American dream. Themes of exaggerated consumption, film noir and the depiction of women in art, the dystopic American landscape, and the intersection of popular culture and politics, are explored through works by acknowledged masters such as Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol, as well as by many artists not traditionally associated with Pop whose art may be understood within its wider field of reference. These include William Eggleston, Peter Saul, Christina Ramberg, and Vija Celmins, among others.

Together they reveal the central role played by television and cinema in articulating the excitement, anxiety, and desire underlying both Pop art and popular culture in the 1960s.

Designing Tomorrow: America's World's Fairs of the 1930s showcases six Depression-era expositions that brought visions of a brighter future to tens of millions of Americans. As many Americans still waited on bread lines, fairs in Chicago (1933/34), San Diego (1935/36), Dallas (1936), Cleveland (1936/37), San Francisco (1939/40), and New York (1939/40) foretold much of what would become commonplace in postwar America--from highways and the spread of suburbia to modernist skyscrapers and products such as electric toasters, nylon stockings, and television.

Through April 14, 2013 - Bronx

Larry Lederman, landscape photographer and member of NYBG's Board of Advisors, has spent years walking the garden grounds to observe and photograph trees and vistas in all seasons and at all times of day. Lush images featuring their diversity and visual impact are on view in the gallery space. The New York Botanical Garden is home to more than 30,000 trees, some in woodland, some in groves, and some standing in solitary majesty. Magnificent Trees is lavishly illustrated with photographs by Larry Lederman and accompanied by descriptions by Todd A. Forrest, Arthur Ross vice president for horticulture and living collections at the garden. An authority on the diverse species present across the 250-acre landscape, Forrest details their fascinating histories -- from their vital role in Native American life and culture to their function in neutral territory during the Revolutionary War. Lederman captures their grandeur in hundreds of stunning images and portrays their diversity with photographs that reveal the trees in myriad fascinating perspectives: in landscape views that convey the garden's genius loci; portraits illustrating the architecture and profound visual impact of select trees; remarkable details of flowers, fruit, leaves, and bark; and impressionistic images, abstract in character yet beautiful in composition.

Inventing Abstraction, 1910-25 celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork, tracing the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. The exhibition brings together many of the most influential works in abstraction's early history and covers a wide range of artistic production, including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, films, photographs, sound poems, atonal music, and non-narrative dance, to draw a cross-media portrait of these watershed years.

Kandinsky 1911-1913 - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through April 17, 2013 - New York

Perhaps more than any other 20th-century painter, Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) has been closely linked to the history of the Guggenheim Museum. Hilla Rebay--artist, art advisor, and the museum's first director--promoted nonobjective painting above all other forms of abstraction. She was particularly inspired by the work and writing of Kandinsky, a pioneer of abstraction, who believed that the task of the painter was to convey his own inner world, rather than imitate the natural world. The museum's holdings have grown to include more than 150 works by Kandinsky, and focused exhibitions of his works are presented in the Kandinsky Gallery on Annex Level 3. The current installation, Kandinsky 1911-1913, highlights paintings completed at the moment the artist made great strides toward complete abstraction and published his aesthetic treatise, On the Spiritual in Art (1911, though dated 1912). Also featured are paintings by Robert Delaunay and Franz Marc that were exhibited alongside the work of Kandinsky and others in the landmark 1912 Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) exhibition held at the Moderne Galerie Heinrich Thannhauser in Munich.

The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 21, 2013 - Midtown

This exhibition, covering the period from 1910 to today, offers a critical reassessment of photography's role in the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde movements -- with a special emphasis on the medium's relation to Dada, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Constructivism, New Objectivity, Conceptual, and Post-Conceptual art -- and in the development of contemporary artistic practices. The shaping of what came to be known as "New Vision" photography bore the obvious influence of "lens-based" and "time-based" works. El Lissitzky best summarized its ethos: "The new world will not need little pictures," he wrote in The Conquest of Art (1922). "If it needs a mirror, it has the photograph and the cinema." Bringing together over 250 works from MoMA's collection, the exhibition features major projects by Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Gerhard Ruhm, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, and Walid Raad, among others. Photographic history is presented as a multivalent history of distinct "new visions," rooted in unconventional and innovative exercises that range from photograms and photomontages to experimental films and photobooks.

Zarina: Paper Like Skin - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through April 21, 2013 - New York

The exhibition Zarina: Paper Like Skin, organized by Allegra Pesenti, Curator, Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, travels to the Guggenheim Museum as part of its international tour. This retrospective of Indian-born American artist Zarina Hashmi is the first major exploration of the artist's career, charting a developmental arc from her work in the 1960s to the present and includes many seminal works from the late 1960s and early 1970s, woodblock prints, etchings and lithographs, and a small selection of related sculptures in bronze and cast paper. The Guggenheim's recent acquisition of 20 works from a major series of pin drawings from 1975 to 1977 serves as a fulcrum for the New York presentation, which is conceived in close collaboration with the artist. An exhibition catalogue provides insights into her life and work. The New York presentation is organized by Sandhini Poddar, Associate Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Assembled by the New York connoisseur Wheelock Whitney between 1972 and 2000, this collection reveals a rich tradition of painting out of doors nearly a century before Impressionism, thus amplifying the role of the natural world as a source of inspiration to artists on the cusp of the modern epoch. This exhibition of fifty paintings is the first to be devoted entirely to the Whitney collection and includes examples by numerous painters who are thought to be represented in no other American museum.

Raw/Cooked: Marela Zacarias - Brooklyn Museum
Through April 28, 2013 - Brooklyn

The seventh exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series, titled Supple Beat, presents the work of Gowanus-based artist Marela Zacarias. Recommended by Ramirez Jonas, Zacarias has created four site-specific sculptural works inspired by the Williamsburg Murals, uniting her interests in abstract forms, the history of objects, and urban renewal. Her large-scale pieces appear to be climbing the walls of the Museum's first-floor lobby and Great Hall, interacting with the architecture as if they were murals come to life. Zacarias draws on the concept of resilience implied by the Williamsburg Murals and explores the idea of bouncing back from adversity, relating to the history of the public housing project for which the murals were commissioned and the history of the works themselves. She constructs her unique sculptural forms from window screens and joint compound, which she then paints with original patterns. In Supple Beat, Zacarias's patterns are inspired by the related murals-- unique color palettes and geometric forms. Born and raised in Mexico City, Zacarias has painted more than thirty large-scale public murals. She holds an MFA from Hunter College.

"Space Shuttle Enterprise: A Pioneer" -- a new exhibition that explores the history of Enterprise and its critical role in the development of the space shuttle -- will open to the public on Thursday, January 17 at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan. "Space Shuttle Enterprise: A Pioneer" introduces Enterprise with compelling artifacts of the era -- such as space shuttle cockpit instruments, a flight helmet and model orbiters -- as well as archival images and video clips to illustrate the history and significance of the prototype orbiter. The exhibition celebrates the pilots and engineers who contributed to the Enterprise story in addition to the technological innovations that helped to make it an icon of the space program. This exhibition will also include photographs crowd sourced from the public who have documented Enterprise's journey from its origins in the 1970s to its expedition to the Intrepid Museum last spring. The exhibition will be open to the public through Spring 2013. In April 2012, the space shuttle Enterprise arrived in New York City and in July 2012, Enterprise joined the collection of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in a temporary, climate-controlled Space Shuttle Pavilion on the Flight Deck. However in late October, Hurricane Sandy damaged the pavilion, and as a result, Enterprise itself is not currently on public display. The exhibition is free with the price of admission to the museum.

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.

Roman Vishniac Rediscovered - International Center of Photography
Through May 05, 2013 - New York

Roman Vishniac Rediscovered brings together four decades of work by an extraordinarily versatile and innovative photographer for the first time. Vishniac (1897-1990) created the most widely recognized and reproduced photographic record of Jewish life in Eastern Europe between the two World Wars. These celebrated photographs were taken on assignment for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, the world's largest Jewish relief organization, from 1935–38, yet this exhibition follows the photographer's long and accomplished career from the early 1920s through the 1950s.This exhibition introduces recently discovered and radically diverse new bodies of work by Vishniac, and repositions his iconic photographs of Eastern Europe within the broader tradition of 1930s commissioned social documentary photography. The exhibition is organized by ICP Adjunct Curator Maya Benton.

We Went Back: Photographs from Europe 1933-1956 by Chim - International Center of Photography
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.

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 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.

A versatile artist, Prior is well known not only for the skill and range of his technique but for the diversity of his sitters. Prior's involvement with Millerism (early Adventism) was instrumental in his personal development as well as providing access to new clients, including many African Americans.

Women's Studies - American Folk Art Museum
Through May 26, 2013 - New York

The late twentieth century has seen great strides for women working within visual mediums, yet the male gaze persists as the primary perspective from which women are considered -- and thus perceived - in film and art. This exhibition presents drawings and photographs of women by four self-taught artists from the1940s through the late twentieth century, two male, two female. Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, Paul D. Humphrey, Nellie Mae Rowe, and Inez Nathaniel Walker offer four very different approaches that raise questions of intent, portrayal, and self-identity: Are the portraits acts of creation or acts of documentation, mimesis or wish fulfillment? Are self-taught artists immune from the pervasive male gaze of mainstream artmaking spheres, or do they reflect a gender divide that still runs deeply within American society?

Their diverse works are located throughout the scenic 75-acre arboretum on the Garden City campus. The biennial will be on view from September 1, 2012 to May 31, 2014. A free reception will be held on Sunday, September 30, 2012, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., along with a walking tour of the sculptures beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the Ruth S. Harley University Center Lobby. This outdoor installation showcases the talents of Miggy Buck (NY), John Clement (NY), Maria Hall (NY), Ed Haugevik (NY), William King (NY), Anti Liu (NY), Johnny Poux (NY), Kim Radochia (MA), Christopher Saucedo (NY), and Hans Van de Bovenkamp (NY). Each sculptor presents his or her own artistic language; their own stories and thoughts to the viewer. Works of art encompass use of various materials: steel, bronze, aluminum, concrete and reflective mirrors. These man-made creations are transposed into poetic visual narrations. The Outdoor Sculpture Biennial brings forth new faces with the celebrated works of William King and Hans Van de Bovenkamp. Mr. King’s Tennis For Money abstractly illustrates four players at the net poised to begin. Van de Bovenkamp’s steel structure entitled Family Outing, is composed of organic flowing vertical forms evoking a powerful uplifting spirit. The exhibit also breaks new ground with Johnny Poux’s slender, large-scale kinetic aluminum structure, entitled Seed, as the tallest piece to be on display. John Clement’s sculpture Duke is the heaviest work, weighing more than 3,000 pounds. This coiled, dense, steel piece can catch one’s eye from afar as well, because of its striking red color. The combination of unique art and magnificent pathways, allows art enthusiasts and other viewers to enjoy each piece as it interacts with its surroundings on the Adelphi campus. Through the changing seasons, these impressive large outdoor constructions communicate and age with their environment.

Joan Semmel: A Lucid Eye - Bronx Museum of The Arts
Through June 09, 2013 - Bronx

Well known for the uncompromising feminist tone of her early work, Joan Semmel has turned her attention over the past decade to the process of image making. Photography has played a central role in Semmel's work since she decided to represent the figure in the early 1970s. However, Semmel's use of photography has often escaped the viewer whose attention focuses on the depicted image. In 2005, Semmel began to afford the viewer a glimpse into her method by aiming the camera towards a mirror, thus capturing the artist in the process of composing the image. Lately, using the camera and mirrors, Semmel has created a haunting series of self-portraits that evoke the passage of time. Organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa.

Through June 30, 2013 - New York

The Sau-Wing Lam collection of violin-family instruments is one of the most important collections of bowed Italian stringed instruments ever assembled by a private individual. Sau-Wing Lam (1923-1988) was born in Shanghai, China, where he graduated with a degree in economics from the prestigious Saint John's University. In 1948 he moved to New York City and eventually became the president of the Dah Chong Hong Trading Corporation, Inc., an import-export business that founded some of the most successful automobile dealerships in the country. An amateur violinist and violist, Lam bought his first important violin in the 1960s and assembled his impressive collection of violins and bows over the next twenty-five years. His holdings eventually included such significant instruments as the "Baltic" violin by Giuseppe Guarneri "del Gesu," the "Bavarian" and "Scotland University" violins by Antonio Stradivari, the "ex Collin" violin by Nicolo Amati, an extremely early viola by Andrea Amati, and Lam's favorite violin, an instrument by Giuseppe Guarneri, one of his earliest acquisitions. Sau-Wing Lam enjoyed sharing his collection and regularly opened his home to scholars, dealers, and musicians. The family hosted impromptu chamber concerts and passionate discussions about music that would last well into the early morning hours. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mr. Lam's death, the collection is being exhibited here for the first time in the United States.
