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 Works: Salon Style at the New-York Historical Society - New-York Historical Society Through February 08, 2015
Salon Style is a method of hanging a gallery that emphasizes the complexity and richness of a collection, often done in the collections of the European royal courts to connote taste and opulence. By the nineteenth century Salon Style was used by private art clubs to squeeze as many works into a gallery as possible. This installation displays numerous gems from the New-York Historical Society's permanent collection in nineteenth-century Salon Style, showcasing the depth and range of our holdings. Everything from self-portraits of Asher Durand to Hudson River School landscapes to religious and history paintings will be on view, in close proximity that unites these typically separate styles.

A Collection of Ideas - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Through February 28, 2015
Museums are defined by their collections, each with a unique point of view that is carefully shaped by curators, who remain mindful of historical precedents as they look ahead to future developments. At the time of The Museum of Modern Art's founding, in 1929, the terms "modern" and "contemporary" coincided effortlessly. Since then, MoMA curators have sought to distill a timeless ideal of visual presence and meaning from different circumstances, all the while revising and reconsidering the initial paradigms of modern art. In the Department of Architecture and Design, the result of this collective, at times subjective, effort is not just a catalog of objects, but is rather a collection of ideas supported by objects. Several of the ideas and themes developed in the past are still actively discussed, but contemporary curators also regularly identify new concepts worth exploring and representing in the collection. This installation focuses on works designed during the last few decades that have been acquired by the Museum not only because they met aesthetic and functional standards that are worthy of our collection, but also because they introduce new categories of investigation and new design forms. The galleries feature clusters of acquisitions that tackle, for instance, the relationship between design and violence; new expressions of organic design in response to environmental and societal disruptions; and the increasing importance of interaction design, as seen in 13 video games new to the collection.

Enlightenment and Beauty: Sculptures by Houdon and Clodion - Frick Collection Through April 05, 2015
Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828) and Claude Michel, called Clodion (1738-1814), were two of the foremost sculptors in France during the late eighteenth century, and the Frick houses an important group of their works. In 1915 founder Henry Clay Frick acquired Clodion's terracotta Zephyrus and Flora and, the following year, Houdon's marble bust of the Comtesse du Cayla. Other works that were subsequently added to the collection will be shown together for the first time, highlighting the artists' expressive ranges, as well as their defining contributions to the sculpture of Enlightenment-era France.

Revolution! Works from the Black Arts Movement - Brooklyn Museum Through May 03, 2015
During the late sixties and seventies, the Black Arts Movement sprung up in the U.S. as the cultural expression of Black Power politics. Its leadership, which included poets, playwrights, musicians, and fine artists, rejected the dominance of the largely white mainstream art establishments that undervalued their work as black artists and created a radical alternative artistic movement based on social and political ideologies rather than narrow aesthetic dictates. In 2012, the Brooklyn Museum acquired forty-four works of art from the Black Arts Movement. Revolution! Works from the Black Arts Movement displays seven of these works from seven different artists. The strong and vibrant images on exhibit are a testament to the stylistic scope of the Black Arts Movement. (read the story...)
