Pilobolus - Joyce Theater
Through August 11, 2012 -

A fungus that grew into an international dance phenomenon, Pilobolus performs a season full of "stunning physical feats and visual surprises, a peek or two into the crannies of the heart, and lots of humor, both awful and sublime." (The New York Times). Highlights include premieres created in collaboration with Michael Moschen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, two artists whose work takes the very definition of dance to new frontiers. The collaboration with physicist, juggler, dancer Moschen unites the underlying spirit of Pilobolus's work--support, humanity, connection—with an artist similarly fascinated with the emotional and physical properties governing human interaction. And the collaboration with Cherkaoui, a "bright young star of contemporary European dance," (Los Angeles Times), equally promises to defy the established boundaries of visual and kinetic artistry. Sandwiched in between are audience favorites gleaned from Pilobolus' repertory, a bag of tricks embracing forty-one years of fun.

PS Art 2012: Celebrating the Creative Spirit of NYC Kids - The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through August 12, 2012 - Upper East Side

Works of art by 76 of New York City public schools' most talented students in grades K through 12 will be displayed in the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for two months this summer through P.S. Art, a project of the New York City Department of Education and Studio in a School Association, Inc. P.S. Art is celebrating its tenth year. The juried exhibition P.S. Art 2012: Celebrating the Creative Spirit of NYC Kids will open for special viewing by the public beginning at 6:30pm on Tuesday, June 12, for participants in the Museum Mile Festival, and will remain on view through Aug. 12. The annual P.S. Art competition fully integrates all public school students in K through the 12th grade. The works in this year's exhibition were made by young artists with a broad spectrum of life experience: students having special needs are represented, as are those enrolled in advanced placement art classes. The exhibition shows how student creativity, artistic ability, and subject matter evolve in the journey from childhood to adulthood. The works in the P.S. Art 2012 exhibition were chosen from 786 submissions citywide. A jury comprised of members of the art community, including staff from the Met, made the final selection. All of the works in the exhibition will also be featured on the metmuseum.org.

Rachel Kneebone: Regarding Rodin - Brooklyn Museum
Through August 12, 2012 -

Rachel Kneebone: Regarding Rodin features fifteen iconic works by nineteenth-century French master Auguste Rodin, selected from the Museum's collection by British artist Rachel Kneebone and shown alongside eight of her own large-scale porcelain sculptures. The exhibition, Kneebone's first major museum presentation, will highlight the artists' shared interest in the representation of mourning, ecstasy, death, and vitality in figurative sculpture. The pairing also offers a visual comparison of the two sculptors' materials and processes. Kneebone's intricately wrought artworks, simultaneously pristine and agitated, contain allusions to Michelangelo, Gianlorenzo Bernini, and Louise Bourgeois. Integrating recognizable human forms with odd mutations, they provide a stark contrast to Rodin's dark, more-concrete, yet equally animated bronzes. Whereas Rodin cast his sculpture, Kneebone creates unique artworks that she fires in a small kiln in her studio, often in sections to be assembled later. The centerpiece of the exhibition, The Descent (2008), is Kneebone's largest work to date. It was inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, as was Rodin's masterpiece The Gates of Hell (1880–1917). The London-based Kneebone was born in 1973 in Oxfordshire, England, and Rodin (1840–1917) was born in Paris. Rachel Kneebone: Regarding Rodin was organized by Catherine Morris, Curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum. This exhibition is made possible by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Foundation, with additional support provided by Lisa and Dick Cashin.

Industry.Cinema: An Installation by Caroline Martel - Museum of the Moving Image
Through August 12, 2012 -

Apart from the familiar world of feature films, there exists a lesser-known world of industrial films, instructional and informational sponsored short films that were shown in schools, at corporate events, in the workplace, and at commercial theaters before features. Documentary filmmaker Caroline Martel's installation INDUSTRY/CINEMA takes an illuminating journey through film history by juxtaposing industrial images with those from popular or canonical films made between 1903 and 1991. With headphones and channel switches, visitors can toggle back and forth between the soundtracks. Images and sounds comment on each other, often in surprising ways, allowing for a singular interactive experience. Scenes from films by Thomas Edison, Charles Chaplin, François Truffaut, and Stanley Kubrick are shown alongside such archival gems as How Business Girls Keep Well, Along These Lines, and The Speech Chain, an AT&T film with a computer singing "Daisy Bell," which was sung by the computer HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Swept Away - Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design - Museum of Arts & Design
Through August 12, 2012 -

MAD has explored the intersection of traditional or unusual materials and techniques as viewed through the lens of contemporary art and design in a series of exhibitions that include Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting; Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary; Slash: Paper Under the Knife; Dead or Alive: Nature Becomes Art; and Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities. The next investigation into unusual mediums features an international group of artists whose major materials are dust, ashes, dirt, and sand. Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design will highlight works that deal with issues such as the ephemeral nature of art and life, the quality and content of memory, issues of loss and disintegration, and the detritus of human existence. Sculptures made from ash by Chinese artist Zhang Huan, life-size sculptures of unfired dirt by American artist James Croak, and works created from city smog by American artist Kim Abeles, among others, illustrate the transformative potential of humble, overlooked, and discarded materials.
