Ray Johnson Designs - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Through September 29, 2014
The art of Ray Johnson was rooted in his constant practice of correspondence. He dispersed a copious amount of collages and other printed matter through the mail to friends and colleagues. The Museum of Modern Art Library received materials in the mail from Ray Johnson from the 1950s until his death in 1995. This exhibition focuses on Johnson's early printed materials, especially his promotional flyers for his work as a graphic designer and illustrator. These flyers were some of the first materials that the MoMA Library received from Johnson and they prefigure the graphic motifs and word play that remained central to his later art work. Publications that included Johnson's design work from this period, including book jacket designs for publishers such as New Directions, The Jargon Society, and City Lights, are also featured.

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Vision: In Pursuit of the Best in the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through October 05, 2014
The Met's Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas (AAOA) celebrates the genesis of its permanent collection with this exhibition. It is organized to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of The Museum of Primitive Art, the direct precursor to AAOA. The Museum of Primitive Art was a pioneering cultural institution that featured Nelson Rockefeller's non-Western art collection. The announcement by Rockefeller of an agreement to transfer his collection to the Metropolitan was made in 1969 and in January 1982 the Michael C. Rockefeller Wing opened to the public. The exhibition highlights some 50 masterpieces and many unpublished documents selected from the more than 3,000 Rockefeller gifts encompassing three areas - Africa, Oceania, and the Americas; it will reveal Mr. Rockefeller's vision for The Museum of Primitive Art, the first institution dedicated entirely to the artistic excellence of the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

LOOT: MAD About Jewelry - Museum of Arts & Design Through October 10, 2014
Now, in its 14th year, LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, MAD's juried selling exhibition of artist-made jewelry, has earned the reputation of being the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary art and studio jewelry by both artists and collectors alike. LOOT will feature a range of work, including inventive pieces in gold, sterling silver, and semiprecious stones alongside jewelry made of unexpected materials such as titanium, stainless steel, glass, wood, rubber, fabric, and found objects. Unlike any other jewelry event in the country, LOOT gives jewelry lovers the opportunity to meet some of the most innovative creators in the field and acquire work directly from them. Last year, MAD honored fashion icons Iris Apfel and Barbara Berger with LOOT Awards for Contemporary Art Jewelry. This annual prize is in keeping with the long-standing commitment of the Museum of Arts and Design to present jewelry as an art form. MAD is the only American museum to possess a gallery dedicated to the display of both temporary jewelry exhibits and its own collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry, which it began assembling soon after its founding in 1956. To date, LOOT has showcased famous jewelry artists like Eva Eisler, Robert Lee Morris and Kara Ross along with newer names - thus becoming an important platform to launch the careers of many young, cutting-edge creators from around the globe. In 2013, 50 jewelry artists from 20 countries - including Argentina, Denmark, Indonesia, Japan, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, and the United Kingdom - participated. This year's participating LOOT artists and LOOT Award recipient will be announced in the spring. (read the story...)

Exemplifying the Museum's commitment to making across all creative fields, the exhibition draws together approximately 100 works by a diverse range of highly skilled and inventive individuals from throughout the five boroughs, from established artists and designers, to expert artisans who work behind the scenes to create objects and experiences that we encounter on a daily basis.

The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy: British Art and Design from the Metropolitan's Collection - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through October 26, 2014
Young and impassioned, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood sought to revitalize mid-nineteenth-century British painting with the sincerity and vivid intensity they admired in medieval and early Renaissance art. Although the Brotherhood was short-lived, its influence was profound. This exhibition will highlight the second wave of the Pre-Raphaelite movement as it unfolded from the 1860s through the 1890s, focusing on the key figures Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Some thirty works from across the Museum's collections - including paintings, drawings, furniture, textiles, prints, and illustrated books, many of them rarely on view and united for the first time - demonstrate the enduring impact of Pre-Raphaelite ideals as they were adapted by different artists and developed across a range of media. At a time of renewed appreciation for art of the Victorian age, the installation will direct fresh attention toward the Metropolitan's little-known holdings in this important area.

New Netherland at 400: Unlocking the Secrets of the 1914 Time Capsule - New-York Historical Society Through October 26, 2014
The term "time capsule" was coined at the New York World's Fair of 1939, but a quarter century earlier this richly ornamented bronze casket - possibly the oldest unopened time capsule in the world - was filled, sealed, and entrusted to the New-York Historical Society. A group of merchants, calling themselves the Lower Wall Street Business Men's Association, launched it on May 23, 1914 as a part of the tercentenary celebrations of the New Netherland Company's chartering in 1614 and the beginnings of Dutch North American colonialism. Ceremoniously enclosed by a former mayor, the chest was to remain sealed until 1974, the bicentennial of New York's appeal for the colonies to form a union. Oversleeping its due date, the chest will finally be unlocked at a ceremony in October. (read the story...)

The Roof Garden Commission: Dan Graham with Gunther Vogt - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through November 02, 2014
American artist Dan Graham (born 1942, Urbana, Illinois) will create a site-specific installation atop The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden-the second in a new series of commissions for the outdoor site. The installation will comprise one of Graham's unique steel and glass pavilions structures for which he has been renowned since the early 1980s-set within a specially engineered landscape designed in collaboration with Swiss landscape architect Gunther Vogt (born 1957, Balzers, Liechtenstein.) Constructed of hedge rows and curves of two-way mirrored glass, the pavilion will be both transparent and reflective, creating a changing and visually complex environment for visitors.

Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Through November 02, 2014
Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness, a major survey of one of the most influential artists working in the photographic medium, confirms Christopher Williams's (American, b. 1956) status as one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking artists of his generation, one whose interests in his generational elders is mirrored by the impact he is currently having on younger artists. In a career spanning nearly 30 years, Williams has explored the realms of photojournalism, picture archives, mass media, and commercial imaging, producing a concise oeuvre of photographs that carries an outsized impact on artists and cultural historians today. Deeply invested in the history of photography as a medium of art and intellectual inquiry, he is committed to furthering a critique of late capitalist society, in which images typically function as agents of consumer spectacle. Williams is currently professor of photography at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, a position previously held by Thomas Ruff, Jeff Wall (fleetingly), and -- for 20 illustrious years -- Bernd Becher.

'To The Inhabitants of Great Britain': The Robert R. Livingston Letters - New-York Historical Society Through November 07, 2014
In the late spring of 1775, New York jurist Robert R. Livingston (1746-1813) drafted a letter titled "The Twelve United Colonies, by Their Delegates in Congress, to the Inhabitants of Great-Britain." Commissioned by the Second Continental Congress as an eleventh-hour attempt to reconcile with the mother country, it is a striking piece of testimony to the internal struggles of colonial leaders and patriots as they tried to develop a framework of reconciliation, and sheds new light on the period leading up to the Declaration of Independence and the final break with Great Britain. The letter was discovered last summer in the Morris-Jumel Mansion in New York City, which served as George Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War, and was recently acquired by Brian Hendelson, a noted New Jersey-based private collector. Hitherto unknown and unstudied, the manuscript will be on view at New-York Historical in the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library, and will remain on loan to New-York Historical for purposes of study and display for two years. (read the story...)
