City Stages, photographs by Matthew Pillsbury - Aperture
Through March 27, 2014 - New York

City Stages offers a paean to the craft and visionary potential of large-format, black and-white photography, as well as to the vibrancy of the cultural landscape at a transitional moment—a moment in which our very relationship to that landscape is increasingly mediated by omnipresent screens. Over the past decade, Matthew Pillsbury has built several extensive bodies of work—Screen Lives, Hours, and City Stages—that deal with different facets of contemporary metropolitan life and the passage of time. Working with black-and-white, 8-by-10 film and long exposures, Pillsbury captures a range of psychologically charged experiences in the urban environment, from isolation—tuned into the omnipresent screens of our tablets, laptops, televisions, and phones—to crowded museums, parades, cathedrals, and even protests. Working primarily in New York but with forays to Paris, London, Venice, and other sites, the precise and concrete rendering of cityscapes, iconic landmarks, and interior spaces in his images provides a stage-like setting for the performance of human activity. Thanks to the extended exposures—some as long as an hour—the actions of both individuals and crowds are blurred and transformed into pure gesture and energy.

Migration Narratives - Pelham Art Center
Through March 29, 2014 - Pelham

The Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce a group exhibition of kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives by six contemporary artists. Migration Narratives will be on view from Jan. 31-Mar. 29, 2014 with an opening reception and all age hands-on workshop on Friday, January 31 from 6:30-8pm. Admission is free and open to the public. This multi-media exhibition relates stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another. Lisa A. Banner is an independent curator and art historian who is a Visiting Associate Professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Migration Narratives are the stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another. They are stories, or narratives, that mark and divine changes in life that take place along that trajectory from one place, physical and spiritual, to another. Historical Migration Narratives are the histories of freed slaves who moved north, away from what was known and binding - slavery, captivity, oppression - to something that was completely unknown and new - self-determination, discovery, and experimentation with life. When applied to contemporary life, this concept of a migration narrative reveals the personal histories of families and individuals, as they move through and across time, to new places. Immigration, a movement into a new place, like Migration, the movement of creatures from one habitat to another, is not determined by physical or political statements or borders, but by the inner need and determination to move, and change one's situation, be it internal or external, determined by self, or by nature. Artists who are new immigrants, first generation Americans, or reflective immigrants to a new way of life are expressive storytellers of such personal narratives. Their stories have a broad appeal. Monika Bravo, Erika Harrsch, Timothy Hawkesworth, Maria Noel, Eliana Perez, and Christopher Smith reflect differing ways of seeing these migrations of people through time, and through states of being. Their work is expressed in kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives. About the Curator Lisa A. Banner is an independent curator and art historian who is a Visiting Associate Professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She has published several artist interviews with Site95 Journal, in addition to extensive publications on Spanish Baroque art in Master Drawings, and a recent catalog of Spanish Drawings in the Princeton University Art Museum (Yale University Press, 2013). As an independent curator she has worked on shows for The Frick Collection, the Museo del Prado, and other venues. Banner has also been a Research Fellow at the National Gallery of Canada, and Samuel H. Kress Curatorial Fellow at The Hispanic Society of America. Recently, she curated several contemporary art exhibitions, including "Light Matter," and "Vital Signs: The Enigma of Identity" at the Pelham Art Center, as well as a series of installations in the Great Hall at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and a forthcoming exhibition in the Schafler Gallery at Pratt Institute. Pelham Art Center, 155 Fifth Ave., Pelham, NY 10803. 914-738-2525. info@pelhamartcenter.org. Hours: Tuesdays-Fridays, 10-5pm; Saturdays, 10-4pm.

Migration Narratives are the stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another.

An Opening of the Field: Jess, Robert Duncan, and Their Circle - Grey Art Gallery at NYU
Through March 29, 2014 - New York

"An Opening of the Field: Jess, Robert Duncan, and Their Circle" is the first exhibition to focus on the work of this genre-bending group of West Coast artists. Jess (1923–2004), who produced fantastical paintings, collages, and assemblages, and Robert Duncan (1919–1988), who wrote poetry in eclectic, myth-laden verse, were one of the most fascinating artistic couples of the 20th century. After they met in San Francisco in 1950, their work became increasingly intertwined, their dense, allusive creations permeating one another. "An Opening of the Field" includes approximately 180 paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, films, and ephemera—many of which have never been shown in public. The show features numerous works by the visual artists and poets in their circle, such as Wallace Berman, George Herms, and R. B. Kitaj, revealing the complex and fertile interplay between poetry and art in San Francisco during the 1950s. It was organized by independent curators Michael Duncan and Christopher Wagstaff for Sacramento’s Crocker Art Museum.

shony Rivnay 'Soft Corps' - BOSI Contemporary
Through April 05, 2014 - New York

BOSI Contemporary is pleased to present Soft Corps a solo exhibition by Israeli artist Shony Rivnay. Combining sculpture, photography, video, and painting, the exhibition reveals a unique body of work that simultaneously embraces beauty and the post-apocalyptic. Living in one of the world’s most contested regions, Rivnay confronts topics such as conflict and the transforming power of love and beauty. Rivnay’s ongoing fascination with brands and logos is reflected in all of his works and derives from a successful career in advertising, an industry he left in 2008. His exploration of graphic languages manifests itself most conspicuously in the presence of pattern—from William Morris florals to geometric carpet design—throughout his work for the past thirty years. A series of pop-inflicted missile heads and sumptuously hand-crafted missiles on display in the gallery create a dream-like poetic reality. Photographs and a video produced in Israel convey a sense of universal human pathos and question the premise of violence, in particular the manmade autonomous kind, as seen in contemporary warfare. The works serve as a reminder of the devastation brought about by decades of conflict and become silent pleas for peace and understanding across cultures. Shony Rivnay holds a BFA degree in Fine Arts from the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel. He has had solo shows at numerous locations such as Temp Art Space gallery, NY, curated by Tim Goossens; Hamburger Bannhoff Museum Campus, Berlin, an official collateral event with the Berlin Biennale 2012; and Tavi Dresdner Gallery in Tel Aviv, among others. His works have been presented in group shows around the globe in venues such as Youkobo Art Space, Tokyo; Artlife for the World Gallery, Venice, Italy; Florentin 45 Contemporary Art Space, Tel Aviv, Israel; and at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel, and more. This year Rivnay will present solo shows at the CCJ Museum in Sao Paulo and at Baro Gallery, Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as at Anat Ebgi Gallery in Los Angeles. Rivnay lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through April 06, 2014 - New York

The exhibition will present seventy works by thirty-five contemporary artists active in China and abroad during the past three decades. Organized into four thematic groupings -- the written word, new landscapes, abstraction, and beyond the brush -- the exhibition seeks to demonstrate that China's ancient cultural pattern of seeking renewal through the reinterpretation of past models remains a viable creative path. Much more than a continuation of earlier art forms, this process embraces radical abstractions, subversions, or reinterpretations of traditional idioms as viable ways to define artistic identity that are quintessentially Chinese. Although the artists considered have all transformed their sources through new modes of expression, one may recognize thematic, aesthetic, or technical attributes in their creations that have meaningful links to China's artistic past.

HATtitude: The Milliner in Culture & Couture - ArtsWestchester
Through April 12, 2014 - White Plains

Hats are art according to ArtsWestchester, which will be showing fabulous, exciting, unique headwear during "HATtitude: The Milliner in Culture and Couture." The exhibition will prove what the Duchess of Cambridge and Lady Gaga already know - that hats are more than mere accessories, they're the crowning glory of any fashion statement. Over 160 hats will be featured in this exhibition that has gathered over 40 contemporary milliners, many of whom are sought after by fashionistas around the world. Through hats that range from playful expressions of individuality, to symbols of propriety or sculptural masterpieces, the show highlights the hat's function in global cultures, as well as its prominent position in 20th- and 21st-century couture fashion. An exciting calendar of engaging lectures by fashion and art historians rounds out additional, related programming. In addition, hands-on workshops led by exhibiting milliners will introduce the public of all ages to the art of hat making. For more info, visit: artswestchester.org/hattitude "According to an old saying," says ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam, 'If you want to get ahead, wear a hat.' That's particularly true in today's day and age as hats are becoming more like works of art and fewer people are wearing them. So to stand out in the crowd, wear a hat." A well-designed hat is as much a statement about its maker as it is it about its wearer. At the heart of "HATtitude" is the milliner and the skills and creativity of the trade. Louise Green (Los Angeles, CA) of Louise Green Millinery is hat-maker to the stars, designing period-influenced headwear for television and movies. Among the celebrities she dresses are the cast of Gossip Girl; Seth Rogan in his role as the Green Hornet; and Taylor Swift, who wore a Louise Green top hat in her 2013 Grammy Awards performance. Catherine Stevens of Cat Stevens Derby Couture creates flamboyant, feathery fascinators and hats guaranteed to stand out within the race-track crowd and beyond. Alongside conventional hats made from traditional materials like fur, felt, or straw, are pieces that stretch the possibilities of the art of millinery. Dramatic and fanciful sculptural pieces by milliners like Jasmin Zorlu (Brooklyn, NY) and Anya Caliendo (Long Island, NY) turn the head of their wearer into a pedestal. Mrs. Caliendo apprenticed under the famous British haute-couture milliner Stephen Jones, and is the only American milliner invited to show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. Local milliners are featured prominently, including several who create pieces for clients in communities across multiple faiths. Cejunel "Sister CJ" Lewis and Carlos NY Hats of the Bronx, are sought after by African American churchgoers who want unique, runway-ready attire for their "Sunday Best." Rivka Zorbaron services the Scarsdale Jewish community and Sara Khan is known for her Middle Eastern head scarf designs. In "HATtitude," functional hats, whimsical hats, hats from bygone eras and from different global cultures will all be on display, providing context for contemporary designs while examining the hat's enduring social significance. The exhibition will also feature "One Block, Many Milliners," a mini-exhibition within the larger show. The 40 unique hats on display in this area were all formed from the same basic hat shape. The collection emphasizes the boundless creativity of milliners, who see endless artistic possibilities in a simple form. "One Block, Many Milliners" is both organized by and on loan from the Milliners Guild, an organization of small millinery business owners and milliners who specialize in the design, production, and promotion of handmade headwear. "HATtitude: The Milliner in Culture and Couture" is curated by Kathleen Reckling, MA; Judith Schwartz, PhD; and Thomas VanBuren, PhD, and is presented thanks to support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York Council for the Humanities. The public is invited to attend an opening reception on Sunday, February 9, from 2-4:30pm. Guests are encouraged to wear their most eye-catching headwear. If you don't have a hat, don't worry - fascinating pieces will be on sale in ArtsWestchester's Art Shop. RSVPs for the opening reception are required. Contact Lea Banks at LBanks@artswestchester.org or 914-428-4220 x330. HATtitude: The Milliner in Culture & Couture is curated by Kathleen Reckling, MA, Tom Van Buren, Ph.D., and Judith Schwartz, Ph.D. It will be on view through April 12, 2014. Gallery Hours: Tuesdays-Saturdays, 12-5pm. Opening Reception: Sunday, February 9, 2-4:30pm, RSVP required. Docent and curator tours are available for groups of 20 or less.

The American West in Bronze, 1850-1925 - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through April 13, 2014 - New York

At the turn of the twentieth century, artistic representations of American Indians, cowboys and cavalry, pioneers and prospectors, and animals of the plains and the mountains served as visual metaphors for the Old West and, as such, were collected eagerly by an urban-based clientele. Through some sixty-five bronze sculptures by twenty-eight artists, this exhibition will explore the aesthetic and cultural impulses behind the creation of statuettes with American western themes so popular with audiences then and now. In addition to representative sculptures by such archetypal artists as Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, the exhibition will explore the work of sculptors who infrequently pursued western subjects -- such as James Earle Fraser and Paul Manship -- yet profoundly informed widespread appreciation of the American bronze statuette. The American West in Bronze, 1850-1925 will offer a fresh and balanced look at the multifaceted roles played by these sculptors in creating three-dimensional interpretations of western life, whether those interpretations are based on historical fact, mythologized fiction, or, most often, something in between.

In 1982, Bruscky lived in New York as a Guggenheim fellow, a period in which he experimented with Xerox and video. To this day still a resident of Recife, Bruscky's work is the result of a continuous engagement with that city and its culture, filtered and documented in the artist's books, photographs, and other media.

A Floating Population: Chinatown Photographs by Annie Ling - Museum of Chinese in America
Through April 13, 2014 - Lower Manhattan

MOCA will present three bodies of her work: "81 Bowery," "Shut-Ins," and "Tenements."

Museum as Hub: Report on the Construction of a Spaceship Module - New Museum
Through April 13, 2014 - New York

Tranzit, an international organization, transforms the Fifth Floor gallery of the New Museum into the simulated interior of a spaceship. The vessel will visually recall the iconic Czech science-fiction film Ikarie XB-1 (1963), which melded postwar utopianism with Soviet utilitarianism. On view in and around the spacecraft will be fifty-plus artworks, mainly video, but also sculpture, print, and installation, by artists hailing from cities around Eastern Europe. The exhibition offers an allegory of "anthropological science fiction," whereby the exhibition space becomes an estranged and exciting universe that dramatizes the cross-cultural translation involved in the presentation of art. Much like the Museum as Hub (the New Museum's international partnership), Tranzit organizations collaborate to produce art historical research, exhibitions, and new commissions.
