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.

Letters to Afar - Museum of the City of New York Through March 22, 2015

The films document poignant family reunions and everyday life in small towns in the years before the Second World War, capturing a culture on the brink. The installation was created by Hungarian artist Peter Forgacs, under a commission by the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

For eighteen years, until her death in 2005, Scott worked with a single-minded devotion on producing idiosyncratic and increasingly complex pieces assembled from found materials encased in thread, yarn, torn fabric, and other fibers.

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...)

Sackler Brain Bench One-Day University: Illuminating the Brain - American Museum of Natural History on October 18, 2014
Your brain contains a web of billions of neurons, linked together through more connections than there are stars in our galaxy. How does this complex network enable us to talk, feel, and breathe? How do scientists use imaging technologies to unravel this vast complexity, and what promises do future technologies hold? Modern brain research and treatment have flourished through the use of high-resolution temporal and spatial neuroimaging methods. These informative and often beautiful images hold clues to the elusive inner workings of the brain on the anatomical, cellular, electrical and genetic levels. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the methodologies used by neuroscientists and neurologists to visualize how our brains function, and sometimes break down. The field of neuroscience has experienced dramatic advances in imaging technologies over the past 20 years; join us for a day of deciphering these images and illuminating the brain.
