Tony has been performing for years and he has gained a reputation as a young star in the making. The Hollywood Reporter recently picked him as one of the hot young talents to come out of New York. Tony just finished shooting the film "Three Can Play That Game" with Vivica Fox in Atlanta and recently wrapped his fourth season of "All of Us" on the CW, playing the role of Dirk Black. He starred in the films "Life Support" with Queen Latifah, and "Homie Spumoni" with Whoopi Goldberg and Joey Fatone. He is currently featured on the TV screen as the host of TV One's "The Funny Spot". Tony's stand-up comedy talents were showcased in the recent revival of "Def Comedy Jam" on HBO. He was previously the host of "Can You Tell?" on Oxygen, and a feature reporter on "Battlebots". He's also been featured on Howard Stern, Extra, and Craig Kilborn.

THEM CD Release Party - Le Poisson Rouge
November 13, 2011 - New York

"[THEM] is poetic and disturbing, backed by the full force of its history without being diminished by it." - The New York Times (October 2010) The CD is comprised of the music and narration of THEM, a performance by Chris Cochrane, Dennis Cooper and Ishmael Houston-Jones originally presented in 1985 by Performance Space 122 and again in 2010 by PS122, the New Museum and tbspMGMT. On Sunday, November 13 Chris Cochrane, Dennis Cooper, Ishmael Houston-Jones will be joined by several dancers from the 2010 edition of THEM as well as musicians Kato Hideki, Richard Dworkin, Doug Wieselman to present excerpts of both the album and performance. Cochrane's music & Cooper's narration are raw and edgy, the perfect sonic description of the improvised, entangled struggle of bodies in this historic performance piece. "In 1985, as many of our friends and colleagues were dying of HIV/AIDS - still a new phenomenon at the time - we created a performance piece investigating how men interact with men. THEM combined Ishmael's dancing, Dennis's words, and my music into a work of bracing, collaborative art. The lives of our friends and community - the loss of their lives - grew to became part of the piece. The infamous final scene, in which Ishmael dances with a dead goat, became a symbol of what we were all going through: grappling and fighting with death every day." - Chris Cochrane Cochrane co-produced the album on John Zorn's Tzadik Label #7627 - Key Series with Kato Hideki. The CD unfolds in "real time," following the time frame and structure of the performance piece.

New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players Present "The Grand Duke" - Peter Norton Symphony Space
November 13, 2011 - Upper West Side

The tangled plot of "The Grand Duke" (or "The Statutory Duel") involves an acting troupe engaged in a conspiracy to overthrow the miserly and mean-spirited grand duke of a small German duchy. When the troupe's leading comedian, Ludwig, accidentally discloses the conspiracy to the Grand Duke's detective, only by means of a rigged statutory duel, fought with cards rather than weapons, is a mass execution avoided -- with Ludwig installed as Grand Duke for a day. Then a series of weddings ensues for Ludwig, the first to the love of his choice and thereafter to women with legally binding and over-riding claims on the unwitting new Grand Duke, winding up with the arrival of The Prince of Monte Carlo and his daughter The Princess who was betrothed to The Grand Duke in infancy. Through his invention of roulette, The Prince has escaped from poverty and come to claim The Grand Duke's hand for his daughter. When it is revealed that the rigged statutory duel, won by an ace over a king, was incorrectly ruled upon because the statute explicitly states that the ace shall count as the lowest -- not the highest -- card, all are restored to their proper loves and a truly joyous multiple wedding celebration occurs.

Carlito Carvalhosa: Sum of Days - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through November 14, 2011 - New York

Brazilian artist Carlito Carvalhosa (b. 1961) conceived Sum of Days as an environmental and participatory sound installation—a monumental, voluminous construction made of soft, white, translucent material that hangs from ceiling to floor and takes the shape of an elliptical labyrinth. This structure hides, or interrupts, the defined limits of its surrounding architectural space, suspending visitors' spatial references and allowing an experience of total immersion. A system of microphones hangs from various heights and records the day's ambient noise, which is played back the following day through several speakers. Each day a new recording is superimposed over the previous one, gradually dimming the oldest sounds into a layer of whispers. Adding yet another element of sound will be periodic musical performances from within the installation. The accumulation of these recordings will constitute an immaterial layering of time—an auditory memory of the accidental noise inherent in everyday experience. This marks the artist's first exhibition in the United States. Musical performances, each 60 to 90 minutes long, take place weekly within the installation between September 8 and November 10. The performers are Lisa Bielawa, David Crowell, Jon Gibson, Philip Glass, Carla Kihlstedt, Michael Riesman, Mick Rossi, and Andrew Sterman. Times are announced via MoMA's Twitter account (@MuseumModernArt) on the day of the event.

Art Gallery Opening: Photography of Jadina Lilien: BUTTERFLY AGAINST THE WIND - The New York Open Center Gallery
Through November 19, 2011 - New York

Photography of JADINA LILIEN | BUTTERFLY AGAINST THE WIND: Remembering the Spirit of the Lakota. Opening Reception - Saturday, October 15, 2011 | 5:30- 8PM. Exhibition Dates - October 15 - November 19, 2011. Butterfly Against the Wind is based on the artist/filmmaker, Jadina Lililen’s impressions of being in South Dakota on the Cheyenne River Reservation. At the invitation of Tiokasin Ghosthorse, (WBAI Radio in NYC: First Voices). Lilien was invited to take photographs on this reservation where he grew up. The work made during this period, a series of digital pigment prints that utilize a multimedia photographic process, is a direct result from the artist’s time spent during these visits. The photographs incorporate the time bound documented images of the romanticized Indian and the present day conditions of the reservation. There are varying degrees of adding additional painting or “mark making” to the photographs. This process at times can be almost undetectable, enabling the image to be clearly visible, or at times, selectively obscuring the image and creating a new narrative. www.opencenter.org/butterfly-against-the-wind-remembering-the-spirit-of-the-lakota/ www.jadinalilien.com

SEASCAPE WITH SHARKS AND DANCER follows the relationship between Ben (Lombardo) and Tracy (Gardiner).

Their verbal sparring turns to flirtation and Ben is charmed by Tracy in spite of herself. The two become lovers but when Tracy moves in, the off-beat romance takes a dysfunctional turn. “Its boy meets girl turned on its head,” says Lombardo, who in addition to starring as Ben also serves as artistic director for Look at the Fish Theatre. “She's got some dreadful behavior that masks inner troubles.” Ben and Tracy begin a battle to marry love with trust. “I think the relationship is more true to life than any other human relationship in theatre,” says Lombardo. “There’s uncertainty and they do awful things, but they still love each other.”

Building Back: 30 Years of Growth in New York City - Center for Architecture
Through November 30, 2011 - New York

Remember New York City 30 years ago? Think graffiti; soaring crime rates; burned out or abandoned buildings everywhere. A new word: "disinvestment." Recall the famous headline, "Ford to NYC: Drop Dead." Remember the oil crises that stalled our economy. The "homeless problem" seemed insurmountable. In 1981, we were just beginning to see the glimmers of a turnaround, but after nearly a decade of virtually no construction, the office and housing stock were inadequate to meet demand. Meanwhile, the new Reagan administration cut back funding to states and local communities. Clearly, change called for new approaches?and these became the hallmark of the city's recovery. The City found new ways to use its regulatory powers and its limited funds as seeds for change. State development, financing and operating agencies stepped in to meet the challenge, as well. At the same time a host of citizen-based parks conservancies, local development corporations, business improvement districts, and other non-profit groups organized to address problems on the ground. The result is what we see today: thriving neighborhoods, expanding commercial centers in all five boroughs, cleaner water and air, safe and beautiful parks, an accessible and exciting waterfront, and the bright lights of Times Square once again inviting us all to celebrate. This is a story of New York City moxie!

Pharma Exhibit at Cooper Union - Cooper Union
Through December 03, 2011 - New York

Graphic design in the pharmaceutical industry from the 1940’s to present day Free and Open to the Public WHAT: The Herb Lubalin Study Center at The Cooper Union examines the influence and impact of graphic design on the pharmaceutical industry in PHARMA, a new exhibit featuring original and rarely seen works by luminaries including Andy Warhol, Lester Beall, Will Burtin and Herb Lubalin. PHARMA’s exploration begins with the avant garde promotionals of the 1940’s, when a market need emerged to promote “miracle” drugs, such as Penicillin, to the medical industry. In a compelling and thought provoking way, PHARMA presents the relationship graphic design has had with the pharmaceutical industry ranging from the federal government’s increased regulations to new marketing tactics where the everyday consumer, not the doctor, is considered the target audience. While the exhibition provides examples of past and present, the public is encouraged to reflect and question how graphic design is used to market drugs and design has transformed these commodities into objects of desire. In addition to graphics, the show will feature: • the evolution of pharmaceutical marketing from early patent medicine promotionals to present day direct-to-consumer ads; • examples of prescription drug packaging; • the establishment of the FDA and increased regulations on drug marketing; • the advent of agencies specializing in pharmaceutical marketing and the use of common advertising techniques such as jingles and slogans to market drugs; and • how the ubiquity of pharmaceutical marketing cultivates the creation of spoofs, serves as source material for artists, and created a new niche of products such as "cosmeceuticals." WHEN: Opening reception: Tuesday, November 1, 2011 6-8pm Exhibition Dates: November 1-December 3, 2011 Exhibition Hours: Monday-Thursday 10-6, Saturday-Sunday 12-5, Closed: Fridays and November 24-27 WHERE: The Cooper Union, 41 Cooper Gallery (3rd Ave. b/w 6th and 7th Sts.), Lower Level 1, New York, NY 10003.

Split Second - Indian Paintings - Brooklyn Museum
Through January 01, 2012 - Prospect Heights

Split Second invites the Brooklyn Museum's online community to participate in a project that will result in a small installation of Indian paintings from the Museum's permanent collection. Taking its inspiration from the critically acclaimed book Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking, by Malcolm Gladwell, this online experiment and resulting installation will explore how our initial reaction to a work of art is affected by what we know, what we're asked, and what we're told about the object in question. Split Second begins with a three-part activity that explores the Museum's collection of Indian paintings; participation is open to anyone with an Internet connection. The first stage explores split-second reactions: in a timed trial, participants will be asked to select which painting they prefer from a randomly generated pair of images. Next, participants will be asked to write in their own words about a painting before rating its appeal on a scale. In the third phase, participants will be asked to rate a work of art after being given unlimited time to view it alongside a typical interpretive text. Each part of the exercise aims to examine how a different type of information—or a lack thereof—might affect a person's reaction to a work of art. Split Second culminates with an installation on the Museum's second floor, opening July 13, 2011. Visitors will be able to view a small selection of the paintings that generated the most controversial and dynamic responses during the evaluation process, accompanied by a visualization and analysis of the data collected. The Brooklyn Museum's collection of Indian paintings ranks among the top ten in the United States, representing the artistic traditions of many different regions, with examples dating from the fifteenth century to the nineteenth. Many of the works in this project have not been on view for several years, owing to their light sensitivity. The installation offers a rare opportunity to see these paintings in person and consider them in a new light. Split Second: Indian Paintings is organized by Shelley Bernstein, Chief of Technology, in consultation with Joan Cummins, Lisa and Bernard Selz Curator of Asian Art, Brooklyn Museum.

Get Your Gears Turning - The Curious World of Patent Models - Hudson River Museum
Through January 01, 2012 - Yonkers

America's manufacturing success is primarily due to the dreams and inventions of its many citizens. Few people realize that from the time Thomas Jefferson formed the U.S. Patent Office in 1790, and throughout the American Industrial Revolution, inventors were required to submit a working, scale model of their inventions, when applying for a patent. "Problem-solving with American ingenuity" is seen in more than 50 intricately crafted, working scale, one-of-a-kind models of inventions that were submitted to the U.S. Patent Office from the 1880s through the early 1900s. Intriguing to viewers of all ages, gadget- and invention-buffs, and everyday folks, the inventions are now a permanent part of our culture from the first patented rocking chair and foldout bed to a burglar alarm. The Rothschild Collection is the world's largest gathering of viewable U.S. Patent Models. Through January 1, 2012.

The World's Largest Dinosaurs - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 02, 2012 - Upper West Side

A new exhibition that goes beyond traditional fossil shows to reveal how dinosaurs actually lived by taking visitors into the amazing anatomy of a uniquely super-sized group of dinosaurs: the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods, which ranged in size from 15 to 150 feet long. Drawing on the latest science that looks in part to existing organisms to understand these extinct giants, The World's Largest Dinosaurs will answer such intriguing questions as how an extremely large animal breathes, eats, moves, and survives by illuminating how size and scale are related to basic biological functions. Innovative interactive exhibits -- including the exhibition centerpiece, a life-sized, fleshed-out model of a 60-foot- long, 11-foot-tall female Mamenchisaurus, known for its remarkable, 30-foot neck -- will take visitors inside these giants' bodies, shedding light on how heart rate, respiration, metabolism, and reproduction are linked to size. An interactive excavation at the end of the exhibition will introduce visitors to how dinosaurs are discovered in the field through a replicated dig site.

194X–9/11: American Architects and the City - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 02, 2012 - New York

In 1942 -- shortly after the U.S. entered World War II -- Architectural Forum magazine commissioned a group of architects, including Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, to design projects for a hypothetical postwar American city, rethinking both urban community life and the relationship between architecture and urban planning. The aim was to project an optimistic postwar period of growth and prosperity to begin as soon as hostilities ended, in 194X -- soon, it was hoped. Over half a century later the country is once again engaged in global conflict and—in the wake of 9/11 and the ongoing financial crisis -- undergoing a major reconsideration of urban and suburban space. This year marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11, an event that ushered in a new era of architectural anticipation and uncertainty, and gave rise to a flurry of urban rebuilding projects, some of which are only finally seeing the light of day at Ground Zero. Drawn from MoMA's architectural holdings, this exhibition shows the work of a variety of architects who took on the urban scale in a spirit of recasting the form and daily experience of the city. In addition to Mies van der Rohe, featured architects include Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph, Rem Koolhaas and OMA, and United Architects.

This exhibition is the first large-scale presentation of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints from Alfred Stieglitz's collection, acquired by the Metropolitan in 1949. In addition to being a master photographer, Stieglitz (1864-1946) was a visionary promoter of modern American and European art, and he assembled a vast art collection of exceptional breadth and depth. Through a succession of influential galleries that he ran in New York City between 1905 and 1946, Stieglitz exhibited many of the most important artists of the era, and he collected works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Constantin Brancusi, Gino Severini, Vasily Kandinsky, Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Charles Demuth, and Arthur Dove. For more than sixty years, The Alfred Stieglitz Collection has been the cornerstone of the Museum's holdings of modern American art.

August Sander and Seydou Keïta - Portraiture and Social Identity - The Walther Collection Project Space
Through January 07, 2012 -

Thursday - Saturday, 12pm - 6pm. On September 23, the Walther Collection will unite the portraiture of two modern photography masters, August Sander and Seydou Keïta, whose images vividly capture the rapid social transformations of the twentieth century through the faces of everyday people. Encapsulating two distinct cultures in pivotal moments of societal transition, Sander and Keïta's portraits reflect on the experience and role of the individual in Germany and Mali. The dual presentation, on view at the Walther Collection Project Space through January 7, 2012, considers how these prolific photographers documented the visual histories and shifting identities of their two countries. August Sander and Seydou Keïta: Portraiture and Social Identity brings together approximately 60 black-and-white photographs by the two artists, encompassing select works from Sander's portfolio Antlitz der Zeit (Face of our Time) from the 1910s and 1920s, one of the most enduring and influential essays in modern photography, and from Keïta's portraiture of residents in Mali's capital city Bamako in the late 1940s and mid-1950s. The artists were first presented in dialogue as part of the Walther Collection's 2010 inaugural exhibition, Events of the Self: Portraiture and Social Identity, curated by Okwui Enwezor, in Neu-Ulm/Burlafingen, Germany. German photographer August Sander (1876-1964) is considered one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, and like his contemporaries, Karl Blossfeldt and Albert Renger-Patzsch, his style favored objective detail, uncompromising true-to-life representation, and a comparative approach to photography. His visual portrayals of farmers, workers, students, families, tradespeople, artists, and the bourgeoisie from early twentieth-century Germany highlight both the individuality of the sitter and the typical traits of social and occupational groups, genders, and generations. In his Antlitz der Zeit portfolio, a 60-image selection from his ongoing master project, Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts (People of the Twentieth Century), Sander worked to create an exact photography that contextualized and highlighted varying social strata and underscored the "true psychology" of a period, unsentimentally capturing a society in transition, shifting from agriculture to industry. By contrast, Seydou Keïta (1929-2001), one of the most renowned West African photographers of the 1950s, worked with a portable studio setting, posing clients against gray or densely-patterned backdrops. Even though his reputation in Mali never dwindled, it was not until the early 1990s that Keïta's work became known internationally, alongside the studio photography of Malick Sidibé and Samuel Fosso. Working during a period of dramatic shifts in Malian familial hierarchies, migration, and political movements, Keïta made portraits of predominantly urban middle-class Bamako residents. His images reflected the society's transition through a merging of traditional and contemporary fashions, and a growing consumer culture, in the decade prior to Mali's independence from France. Frequently pictured with elaborate textiles, jewelry, radios, and cars, in highly-conscious poses, sitters expressed the emerging myth of a modern African city - to be photographed by Keïta was to be made Bamakois, beautiful, and cosmopolitan. Keïta's portrait style, which emphasized the visual interplay between sitter and site and the creation of the ideal, shaped the new image of postcolonial identity.

El Museo's Bienal: The (S) Files 2011 - El Museo Del Barrio
Through January 08, 2012 - New York

El Museo's Bienal: The (S) Files 2011 is El Museo del Barrio's sixth biennial of the most innovative, cutting-edge art created by Latino, Caribbean, and Latin American artists currently working in the greater New York area. This year's edition spreads all over the city, showcasing a record 75 emerging artists in six different venues. Aiming to expand the definition of contemporary Latino and Latin American art, The (S) Files 2011 takes on a broad exploration of the visual energy, events, and aesthetics of the street. While considering the more conventional understandings of street art such as graffiti and mural painting, The (S) Files 2011 extends the definition of street art by also considering non-traditional art objects as well as works from other disciplines, including music and fashion. The (S) Files 2011 explores how the boundaries between public/private and personal/universal are blurred by urban culture, and examines the street as catalyst for change in mainstream culture. The exhibition looks at how these social borders mix and dissolve in urban environments, and how artists use these social alterations as points of creative departure. Among the themes developed in The (S) Files 2011 are the influence of early New York street art movements, text and urban styles, and the creation of art works from urban debris. The variety of issues addressed by the artists range from daily life situations, to social behaviors, to economic distress. In addition to its overall focus on New York-based artists, The (S) Files 2011 celebrates the Biennial of the Central American Isthmus (Bienal del Istmo Centroamericano) by showcasing the work of a group of artists featured in its most recent edition.

The exhibition, which will only be seen at MoMA, presents an unparalleled opportunity to study the artist's development over nearly seven decades, beginning with his early academic works, made in Holland before he moved to the United States in 1926, and concluding with his final, sparely abstract paintings of the late 1980s. Bringing together nearly 200 works from public and private collections, the exhibition will occupy the Museum's entire sixth-floor gallery space, totaling approximately 17,000 square feet. Representing nearly every type of work de Kooning made, in both technique and subject matter, this retrospective includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints.

Also included is de Kooning's famous yet largely unseen theatrical backdrop, the 17-foot-square Labyrinth (1946).

The Making of a Collection - Islamic Art at the Metropolitan - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through February 05, 2012 -

The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses one of the largest, most comprehensive collections of Islamic art in the world. This could not have been achieved without the generosity of dedicated individuals who supported the Museum with gifts and bequests. This exhibition will be a chronological study of some of the Museum's major donor-collectors, whose gifts form the core of the collection of the Department of Islamic Art, illuminating the factors and motivations that inspired their collecting habits. Particular attention will be paid to the early collectors during the first decades of Islamic art collecting in America, a period when as much as fifty percent of the Department's collection was established. From the last quarter of the nineteenth century to the early 1930s, objects from the Islamic world were introduced to the American market as exotic treasures and gradually gained public recognition. The interest in travel to the Middle East that had earlier spawned a vast travel literature in Europe caught on in America as well. It was the time of the Orientalist movement. At international expositions, governments of the Near East erected pavilions in which imported objects and parts of buildings where shown and, afterward, sold to Americans. Oriental art dealers played a critical role: as tastemakers for Islamic art, they acted as intermediaries between governments, American collectors, and museums. Since then, the Metropolitan's collection has continued to grow and, as in the past, generous donors continue to support its acquisitions. Today, the collection comprises approximately twelve thousand objects, of which -- in conjunction with the reopening of the New Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and Later South Asia on November 1 -- twelve hundred will be on view.

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.

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.

Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through May 14, 2012 - New York

Diego Rivera was the subject of MoMA's second monographic exhibition (the first was Henri Matisse), which set new attendance records in its five-week run from December 22, 1931, to January 27, 1932. MoMA brought Rivera to New York six weeks before the exhibition's opening and gave him studio space within the Museum, a strategy intended to solve the problem of how to present the work of this famous muralist when murals were by definition made and fixed on site. Working around the clock with two assistants, Rivera produced five "portable murals"—large blocks of frescoed plaster, slaked lime, and wood that feature bold images drawn from Mexican subject matter and address themes of revolution and class inequity. After the opening, to great publicity, Rivera added three more murals, now taking on New York subjects through monumental images of the urban working class and the social stratification of the city during the Great Depression. All eight were on display for the rest of the show's run. The first of these panels, Agrarian Leader Zapata, is an icon in the Museum's collection. This exhibition will bring together key works made for Rivera's 1931 exhibition, presenting them at MoMA for the first time in nearly 80 years. Along with mural panels, the show will include full-scale drawings, smaller working drawings, archival materials related to the commission and production of these works, and designs for Rivera's famous Rockefeller Center mural, which he also produced while he was working at the Museum. Focused specifically on works created during the artist's stay in New York, this exhibition will draw a succinct portrait of Rivera as a highly cosmopolitan figure who moved between Russia, Mexico, and the United States, and will offer a fresh look at the intersection of art making and radical politics in the 1930s. MoMA will be the exhibition's sole venue.
