Through January 09, 2014 - Upper West Side

"Penguins," a new giant-screen adventure following a very special King Penguin as he returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic, opens at the American Museum of Natural History, on Monday, July 8. The film will screen at the museum through Jan. 9, 2014. Produced by award-winning Atlantic Productions and distributed by nWave Pictures Distribution, the film is narrated by world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough. Penguin City, on the remote island of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic Ocean, is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals, and brawling elephant seals, as well as 6 million penguins.

The film follows him through the most challenging time in a King Penguin?s life, when he is driven to nurture and defend his offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators. The cosmic drama plays out in one of Earth?s last great wildernesses, amid steep mountain ranges and windblown plains half buried beneath snow and ice. Penguins will be shown daily in the Museum?s Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm (hourly). To purchase tickets in advance, the public should call 212-769-5200 or visit amnh.org.

The creations resonate on a visual, mental and emotional level, touching the audience in multiple and manifold ways. The artists whose works appear in Pathway to Abstraction present their individual perspectives in entertaining and energetic pieces whose considerable appeal lies in their ability to shed new light on old mysteries while leaving new secrets tantalizingly hidden.

Niccolo Cosme - The Altar Boy - Tally Beck Contemporary
Through January 10, 2014 - New York

Featuring approximately 13 large-scale manipulated photographs that draw from the artist's background as a gay man growing up in the intensely Catholic culture of the Philippines. Just as Christian imagery was adjusted to the context of different cultures, Cosme re-imagines Counter-reformation ecstatic and hagiographical imagery with a homoerotic twist and an emphasis on national identity. Using live models, he stages his photographs, and his work recalls the hyper-realsim and surrealism of Pierre et Gilles.

Andrea Arroyo - Memories Interlaced - Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Center
Through January 10, 2014 - New York

Arroyo's exhibit marries the elegant historical venue with bright contemporary art. The female-centered works are placed amid the striking plaster garlands, cherubs, and marbleized columns of the restored Audubon Ballroom - the Thomas Lamb classic built in 1912 and the site of the assassination of Malcolm X in 1965. Arroyo uses garments collected from women in the community, such as a Mexican huipil and an Indian prayer shawl, repurposed evocative personal items, to examine notions of memory, belonging, and body image and to honor the resilience of the female spirit. The exhibit includes a painting of the Aztec goddess Coatlicue integrated with a hand-woven Mexican huipil; Ixchel, which depicts the Mayan Jaguar goddess integrated with a Guatemalan hand-woven skirt cloth; and Sarasvati, a work integrating the Hindu deity of the rivers and the arts with a silk wrap.

'Transparency', Salvatore Emblema - BOSI Contemporary
Through January 11, 2014 - New York

In collaboration with the archives, estate, and museum of Italian post-war artist Salvatore Emblema, BOSI Contemporary is proud to announce his first New York exhibition Transparency, which examines his career through 20 works and a large-scale installation. Having spent the majority of his life in Italy, Emblema remains relatively unknown to an American audience despite two extended stays in New York City. Brought here on a Rockefeller Grant in the mid 1950s, Emblema spent a year in the New York art scene where he befriended eminent American painter Mark Rothko. Rothko’s iconic compositions and color use influenced Emblema who uniquely adopted these ideals. Growing up in Terzigno, a town on Mt. Vesuvius overlooking Pompeii, informed his basic artistic impulses. Always a purist with an interest in raw materials, Emblema concerned himself with nature, texture, shadow, and most importantly, light. His use of stretched sackcloth, or burlap, embodied all these interests and quickly became his canvas of choice. During his second New York visit in 1965, Emblema met Giulio Carlo Argan, a fellow Italian, a writer, and an observer of international art. Argan’s deep admiration of Emblema’s work pushed his development. Emblema began physically manipulating the jute fibers in the hopes of achieving painterly transparency. Despite working in relative isolation, Emblema’s oeuvre contains undertones of minimalism, process art, and arte povera as well as earth art and abstraction. As Peter Frank, curator and critic, states “Emblema’s work rarely if ever entraps itself in a certain period. It clearly comes from an era, responding as it does to the existential and perceptual questions of the 1950s and early 60s. But it was never of an era.” Salvatore Emblema (1929-2006) attended the Scuola del Corallo in Torre del Greco where he graduated in 1948. He had multiple solo exhibitions throughout Italy and internationally. Noted group shows include the 1980 and 1982 Venice Biennale; Italics, curated by Francesco Bonami, Palazzo Grassi, Venice, Italy (2009); The Language of Less curated by Michael Darling, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chicago, Louisiana (2011).

Paintings by Rafal Olbinski - 'The Virtue of Ambiguity' - Studio Vendome's SOHO Galleries
Through January 11, 2014 - New York

Rafal Olbinski, internationally acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest living Surrealist painters, will be exhibiting at two new galleries in SoHo. Studio Vendome is located in architect Philip Johnson’s Urban Glass House at 330 Spring Street. It is featuring 30 larger Olbinski oils on canvas. The second gallery, Studio Vendome Projects, is located at 30 Grand Street and is exhibiting 13 smaller-formated oils on canvas. The shows will run from December 11, 2013 to January 11, 2014. The show’s curator, Peter Hastings Falk, points out that Olbinski was recently elected to the “Rediscovered Masters” exhibition series by an Art Advisory Board composed of distinguished museum directors, curators, historians, and critics. A hardcover book, The Virtue of Ambiguity, is being published for the exhibition and will be released at the opening reception to be held on Wednesday, December 11th from 6-9 pm. Profusely illustrated, the book includes essays by the renowned art critic Robert C. Morgan and Olbinski’s biographer, Izabela Gabrielson. Born in Kielce, Poland in 1945, Olbinski studied architecture before dedicating himself to painting and poster design. In 1970 he became art director of Jazz Forum, the iconic international jazz magazine founded in Poland in 1965. He was a key member of the Polish School of Posters, which exerted a significant influence upon international graphic design. In 1981, when martial law was declared in Poland, Olbinski happened to be in New York attending an exhibition of his work at The Polish Institute of Arts & Sciences of America (PIASA). Unable to return to Poland, he was surprised to have found himself “trapped” in America, the promised land of freedom for many immigrants. Settling in New York, Olbinski quickly won wide recognition for his large series of surreal posters created for the New York Opera and for numerous magazine covers for hundreds of publications such as Newsweek, Time, Business Week, Atlantic Monthly, Omni, The New York Times, New Yorker and many others. Like the great Surrealists before him, Olbinski views the mind as a theater of dreams and his resulting images as maps of the interior of the mind. These images are layered with psychological complexity, but they emit a poetic resonance that finds universal appeal. The comparisons are most often with Magritte — and this has earned him the epithet, “Prince of Surrealism.” When art critic Robert C. Morgan met Olbinski in his Manhattan studio, his first impression was that, “Somehow these compressed, old world quarters seem to match perfectly with Olbinski’s brilliantly complex and paradoxical imagery, filled with mutated classical-style figures, fish, birds, buildings, costumes, and incredible landscapes.” Olbinski has won more than one-hundred awards, including gold medals from the Society of Illustrators and the Art Directors Club of New York; and comparable awards in London and Paris. In 1994 he was awarded the World’s Most Memorable Poster by UNESCO. In 1995 his poster, New York, Capital of the World, was chosen for Zagat. He also designed two Earth Day posters. His works are in many museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in Japan, Library of Congress Print Collection in Washington, D.C., the Carnegie Foundation in New York, the National Arts Club in New York, and various corporate and private collections. The galleries of Studio Vendome are uniquely positioned to showcase late career artists and artist estate collections deserving greater critical recognition. They opened in September by Antonio Vendome, chairman of the Vendome Group. These eponymous galleries are located in West SoHo’s burgeoning Hudson Square district. Mr. Vendome’s vision for approaching the art world in a different way was developed during the 1980s and 1990s owing to his close professional relationship with Philip Johnson, the great modernist American architect. The Manhattan real estate developer explained, “Philip Johnson designed the critically acclaimed ‘Habitable Sculpture’ which I intend to build one day to continue his legacy and establish the true value of architecture as art, which will highlight Johnson’s lasting impact on the American landscape.” Vendome’s overarching initiative is therefore to present visually compelling exhibitions for both galleries.

Balthus: Cats and Girls - Paintings and Provocations - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through January 12, 2014 - New York

Balthus is best known for his series of pensive adolescents who dream or read in rooms that are closed to the outside world. Focusing on his finest works, the exhibition will be limited to approximately thirty-five paintings dating from the mid-1930s to the 1950s. Between 1936 and 1939, Balthus painted his celebrated series of portraits of Therese Blanchard, his young neighbor in Paris. Therese posed alone, with her cat, or with her two brothers. When Balthus lived in Switzerland during World War II, he replaced the forbidding austerity of his Paris studio with more colorful interiors in which different nymphets daydream, read, or nap. The exhibition concludes with images that he created of Frederique Tison, his favorite model, at the Chateau de Chassy in the Morvan during the 1950s. Never before shown in public will be the series of forty small ink drawings for Mitsou, in which the eleven-year-old Balthus evoked his adventures with a stray tomcat and which were published by the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke in 1921. This is the first exhibition of the artist's works in this country in thirty years. Four works belong to the Museum's collection and the rest -- with the exception of several loans from France, England, Switzerland, and Australia -- will come from museums and private collections in the United States.

Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol - Morgan Library & Museum
Through January 12, 2014 - New York

Every holiday season, the Morgan displays Charles Dickens's original manuscript of A Christmas Carol in Pierpont Morgan's historic Library. Dickens wrote his iconic tale in a six-week flurry of activity, beginning in October 1843 and ending in time for Christmas publication. He had the manuscript bound in red morocco as a gift for his solicitor, Thomas Mitton. The manuscript then passed through several owners before Pierpont Morgan acquired it in the 1890s.

Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938 - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 12, 2014 - Midtown

This exhibition, organized in collaboration with The Menil Collection, Houston, and The Art Institute of Chicago, is the first to focus exclusively on the breakthrough Surrealist years of Rene Magritte, creator of some of the 20th century's most extraordinary images. Beginning in 1926, when Magritte first aimed to create paintings that would, in his words, "challenge the real world," and concluding in 1938 -- a historically and biographically significant moment just prior to the outbreak of World War II -- the exhibition traces central strategies and themes from the most inventive and experimental period in the artist?s prolific career. Displacement, transformation, metamorphosis, the "misnaming" of objects, and the representation of visions seen in half-waking states are among Magritte's innovative image-making tactics during these essential years. Bringing together some 80 paintings, collages, and objects, along with a selection of photographs, periodicals, and early commercial work, the exhibition offers fresh insight into Magritte's identity as a modern painter and Surrealist artist. A richly illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492-1898 - Brooklyn Museum
Through January 12, 2014 - Brooklyn

Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492-1898 is the first major exhibition in the United States to explore the private lives and interiors of Spain's New World elite from 1492 through the nineteenth century, focusing on the house as a principal repository of fine and decorative art. Through approximately 160 paintings, sculptures, prints, textiles, and decorative art objects, this exhibition presents for the first time American, European, and Asian luxury goods from everyday life as signifiers of the faith, wealth, taste, and socio-racial standing of their consumers. The exhibition explores themes including representations of the indigenous and Creole elite, rituals in the home, the sala de estrado (women's sitting room), the bedchamber, and social identity through material culture. Behind Closed Doors primarily consists of works from the Brooklyn Museum's world-renowned collections as well as exceptional loans from distinguished institutions and private collectors. It is the first presentation of the Museum's important Spanish colonial holdings since the groundbreaking 1996 exhibition Converging Cultures: Art & Identity in Spanish America. The exhibition is accompanied by a scholarly catalogue with contributions by leading scholars of Colonial Spanish and British American art.

GingerBread Lane - New York Hall of Science
Through January 12, 2014 - Queens

Jon Lovitch is a chef and the creator of GingerBread Lane, an annual display of homemade and handmade gingerbread houses that he drafts, designs, bakes, plans, builds, and decorates for an entire year. This season will be its 20th. The concept for Gingerbread Lane changes each year, depending on what Lovitch has seen at gingerbread competitions, in magazines, at holiday displays, sometimes even drawing ideas from houses he spots while driving. Lovitch purchases the materials after the holiday season, and begins designing and constructing the exhibit by March. All work is completed by late October and reviewed for detail until the exhibit begins. Beginning in November, Lovitch works between 80 and 90 hours for the final three weeks before GingerBread Lane opens for display. Each gingerbread house requires approximately three hours to complete and many of the complicated projects within the village require upwards of 35 hours. Each annual GBL takes about 1500 hours to make. GBL is made from only "real" edible ingredients: gingerbread, royal icing, and candy. In contrast, other gingerbread competitors use dried pasta, uncooked rice and beans, and edible clay, among other ingredients. This year, GBL uses both gingerbread bricks and candy bricks for the structures. The 2013 GBL weighs more than 1.5 tons, covers a continuous surface of nearly 300 square feet and is 11 feet high at its highest point. It will be competing for a Guinness World Record for largest gingerbread exhibit, and will be the largest GBL ever. While the layout and composition change yearly, GBL always includes Eggnog Bay, Gum Drop Row, Peppermint Central Park, Candy Cane Place, and Toffee Boulevard. New this year is Ribbon Candy Ridge and a "behind-the-scenes" window, giving a peek into the makings of GBL with ovens, models, and ingredients...made entirely from royal icing. Five two-foot-high nutcrackers, also made of royal icing, stand guard over the back of the exhibit. This year's village includes an estimated 1750 lbs. of icing, 400 lbs. of candy, and 500 lbs. of gingerbread dough; and comprises 152 gingerbread houses, 65 trees, four gingerbread cable cars, five gingerbread train cars, an underground candy subway station, candy trees, and sugar signage. GingerBread Lane always sits out in the open, rather than behind glass, a fact that can really be appreciated when one smells the homemade gingerbread. All gingerbread structures are given away free on the last day of the exhibit. Since December 2000, GingerBread Lane has also hosted annual workshops for families and after-school programs for children. Each year, Lovitch works with underprivileged and disabled children by shipping GingerBread Lane pieces across the country for those unable to view the display. gingerbread-lane.org; Twitter: @GingerBreadLane; Facebook: GingerBread Lane, #gingerbreadlane.

Industrial Sublime: Modernism and the Transformation of New York's Rivers, 1900-1940 - Hudson River Museum
Through January 17, 2014 - Yonkers

The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 assured the Hudson River a vital role in the evolution of what would become New York City into the nation's industrial and financial powerhouse - its "Empire City." The same year, artist Thomas Cole was "discovered," setting in motion a tradition of painting that transformed American art, much as the Erie Canal was rapidly transforming the landscape. For the most part, artists ignored the industrialization of the region; Cole was a strong proponent of the British traditions of the sublime and the beautiful, and his melding of these romantic ideals to direct observation of nature became the mainstay of American landscape in the mid-19th century. The ideal expressed in thousands of Hudson River School canvases from the 1820s through the turn of the century constituted a moving vocabulary many artists clung to, even decades after the reality of the landscape had changed. It was not until the first decade of the 20th century, as artists like Robert Henri and John Sloan turned their attention to the urban scene, that American art shifted its focus from bucolic landscapes to the cities, the towns, and the crowds, especially the raucous urban scene of Manhattan - by then the nation's most important metropolis. The movement away from painting the land to painting the life on the street is often seen as a clean break with the depiction of the landscape, and with landscape painting generally as a mainstay of American art in the face of European Modernism. However, artists continued to paint the Hudson River, as well as its tributaries, the Harlem and East Rivers, and the great harbor of New York City into which they flowed. What was different was their approach. Having jettisoned the romantic ideals of their forebears, artists like Henri and Sloan, and later, Georgia O'Keeffe, George Ault, Edward Hopper, and Preston Dickinson, celebrated the changing way of life along the city's waterfront. As the century progressed, they did so with sharper focus and with ideals borrowed from the Machine Age. Instead of majestic mountain ranges, their subjects were the arching bridges, swinging cranes, and streamlined ocean liners resting in the harbor. Artists took the elements of the Sublime, combined them with Modernism's interest in structure and form, and applied them to the manmade industrial one - thereby creating a new visual vocabulary for the 20th century - the Industrial Sublime. "Industrial Sublime," the exhibition, takes as its focus the shift in both style and sensibility during the years 1900 to 1940, and explores the development of a new mode of landscape painting and pictorial ideals suited to America's role as a global industrial power. Museums lending works to the exhibition of more than 60 paintings include The Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; The Art Institute of Chicago; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute; High Museum of Art; Museum of Art, Ft. Lauderdale; Georgia Museum of Art; The New-York Historical Society; Museum of the City of New York; Newark Museum; the Phillips Collection; Flint Institute of Arts; Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Norton Museum of Art. The exhibition, accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, is co-curated by Kirsten Jensen, Curator, Hudson River Museum and Bartholomew F. Bland, Director of Curatorial Affairs, Hudson River Museum. Additional essayists for the publication include Wendy Greenhouse, co-author of "Chicago Modern 1893-1945: Pursuit of the New;" Katherine E. Manthorne, professor of modern art of the Americas, Graduate Center, City University of New York; and Ellen E. Roberts, Harold and Anne Berkley Smith Curator of American Art, Norton Museum of Art. "Industrial Sublime: Modernism and the Transformation of New York's Rivers, 1900-1940" is the fifth exhibition in the Hudson River Museum series, "The Visitor In the Landscape." The exhibition will travel to the Norton Museum of Art, March 20-June 22, 2014. 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. The exhibition catalogue is supported, in part, by Furthermore: a program of the J.M. Kaplan Fund. On view through January 17, 2014.

Jan De Vliegher - Mike Weiss Gallery
Through January 18, 2014 - New York

Nw works by Jan De Vliegher, making this the artist's second solo show with the gallery. Layering rich hues of wet oil paint and working from the shoulder, De Vliegher takes an athletic approach to an otherwise banal nature scene, offering a series of large-scale canvases that contrast deep, murky waters with fluorescent patterned figures. In a meditation on mark-making, rhythm, and symphonic harmony, a world built on landscape and impressionism emerges, breathing new life into these time-honored genres while catalyzing a new approach to abstraction, repetition, and action painting.

Zoe Strauss: 10 Years - International Center of Photography
Through January 19, 2014 - New York

For a decade between 2001 and 2010, Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss (b. 1970) showed her photographic works once a year in a public space beneath an I-95 highway overpass in South Philadelphia. In these annual one-day exhibitions, Strauss mounted her color photographs to the concrete bridge supports and viewers could buy photocopies for five dollars. Through portraits and documents of houses and signage, Strauss looked unflinchingly at the economic struggles and hardscrabble lives of residents in her own community and other parts of the United States. She describes her work as "an epic narrative about the beauty and struggle of everyday life." Strauss, a self-taught photographer and political activist, sees her work as a type of social intervention, and she has often used billboards and public meetings as venues. This exhibition is a mid-career retrospective and the first critical assessment of her decade-long project.
