Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion - New-York Historical Society Through April 19, 2015
Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion explores the centuries-long history of trade and immigration between China and the United States -- a history that involved New York from its very beginnings -- and will raise the question "What does it mean to be an American?" The exhibit narrative extends from the late eighteenth century to the present and includes all regions of the country, thus interpreting the Chinese American saga as a key part of American history.

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...)

The lecture will be followed by a book signing. (read the story...)

Designing Modern Women, 1890s-1990s - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Through September 21, 2014
Modern design of the 20th century was profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women -- as muses of modernity and shapers of new ways of living, and as designers, patrons, performers, and educators. This installation, drawn entirely from MoMA's collection, celebrates the diversity and vitality of individual artists' engagement in the modern world, from Loie Fuller's pulsating turn-of-the-century performances to Paula Scher's deconstructivist graphics of the 1990s. Highlights include the first display of a newly conserved kitchen by Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier (1952) from the Unite d'Habitation housing project; furniture and designs by Lilly Reich, Eileen Gray, Eva Zeisel, Ray Eames, Lella Vignelli, and Denise Scott Brown; textiles by Anni Albers and Eszter Haraszty; ceramics by Lucy Rie; a display of 1960s psychedelic concert posters by graphic designer Bonnie Maclean; and a never-before-seen selection of posters and graphic material from the punk era, featuring women designers, photographers, or performers. The gallery's "graphics corner" first explores the changing role and visual imagery of The New Woman through a selection of posters created between 1890 and 1938; in April 2014 the focus will shift to Women at War, an examination of the iconography and varied roles of women in times of conflict, commemorating the centennial of the outbreak of World War I.

City as Canvas - Museum of the City of New York Through September 21, 2014
City as Canvas provides a visual account of graffiti and street art in New York City during the 1970s and 80s, showcasing works from the pioneering collection of Martin Wong (1946-1999). Wong, a noted East Village artist in the 1980s and friend to many graffiti writers, amassed a collection of hundreds of works on paper and canvas, which he donated to the City Museum in 1994. This exhibition, which showcases these works for the first time, traces the origins of this urban self-expression and the era of "outlaw" street art, which became a worldwide cultural phenomenon. It features examples of paintings and sketch book work by artists including Keith Haring, Lee Quinones, Lady Pink, Futura 2000, among many others. (read the story...)

'I Live. Send Help.' 100 Years of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee - New-York Historical Society Through September 21, 2014
The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) was founded in New York City in 1914 as a response to the plight of Jews in Europe and Palestine at the outset of World War I. Since then, JDC has become a premiere humanitarian organization helping Jews and non-Jews the world over in times of need. On the occasion of its 100 year anniversary, this exhibition will recount the history of the JDC from its creation by Jacob Schiff and Henry Morgenthau Sr. to its most recent relief activities rebuilding Jewish communities of the former Soviet Union and in aiding Filipinos in the wake of the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan. Included in this celebratory exhibition will be photographs, objects, and films that bring the JDC's poignant stories to life. (read the story...)

Mel Bochner: Strong Language - The Jewish Museum Through September 21, 2014
An in-depth survey of Bochner's career-long fascination with the cerebral and visual associations of words. The exhibition will include over 70 text-based works. Among the highlights are his mid-1960s Portrait Drawings, never before exhibited in New York, and paintings from the last decade using synonyms appropriated from the latest edition of Roget's Thesaurus. Bochner was inspired by the Thesaurus' new permissiveness to broaden his linguistic references juxtaposing vernacular against proper, formal against vulgar, high against low. A founding figure of the Conceptual Art movement of the 1960s, his Working Drawings and Other Visible Things on Paper Not Necessarily Meant to be Viewed as Art is considered to be the first Conceptual Art exhibition. Mel Bochner (b. 1940) emerged at a time when young artists considered painting exhausted. A pioneer in incorporating language into visual art, Bochner has taken an unusual turn toward painterly expressiveness during the past two decades. Mel Bochner: Strong Language will reveal the artist's longstanding engagement with the possibilities of language as image, medium, and content. Visitors will be able to see a broad selection ranging from often witty early conceptual works to vibrantly colored and lushly executed recent paintings. (read the story...)

The public will have the rare opportunity to go inside 20+ working movie trailers and trucks—straight from productions shooting in New York—and speak directly with movie professionals about what they do on set. Trucks will include star dressing rooms, electrical, grip, prop, camera, hair and makeup, wardrobe, special effects trucks, and more. Key film craftspeople will demonstrate and explain firsthand their roles in the moviemaking process and how they got there.

Before making her widely known and iconic feminist work of the 1970s, 1980s, and beyond, Judy Chicago explored painting, sculpture, and environmental performance, often using innovative industrial techniques and materials, including auto body painting and pyrotechnics. This survey includes approximately 60 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, and videos, including documentation of performances, spanning 1963 to 1974. On view are important early sculptures, including Rainbow Picket (1964), which blend minimalist forms and bold color choices, and a range of vibrant paintings and sculptures made with sprayed acrylic lacquer, a material typically used for decorating cars.

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.
