Francesco Clemente: Inspired by India - Rubin Museum of Art Through February 02, 2015
The first museum exhibition devoted to the Indian influences in Clemente's work and how they relate to the artistic practices and traditions of various regions in India features approximately 20 works, including paintings from the last 30 years, and four new, larger than life-size sculptures created especially for the exhibition. In contrast to leading conceptual art practices of the 1970s, Clemente refocused attention on representation, narrative, and the figure, and explored traditional, artisanal materials and modes of working.

Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Through February 08, 2015

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.

Five Boroughs: Photographs by Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao - Museum of the City of New York Through February 15, 2015
A portrait of New York as seen through more than 40 large-scale panoramic photographs of the city's urban landscape. Five Boroughs: Photographs by Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao features more than 40 works by this Taiwanese artist, who came to New York at age 18 to study photography. Pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary photography, Liao (b. 1977) creates large-scale panoramas by combining multiple exposures of the same location taken over the course of several hours. The resulting composite photographs are often fantastical - complex, hyper-real views that no single shot - or the eye - could capture. Liao has spent the past decade honing his distinctive style, making images of his adopted city from the Grand Concourse to Coney Island, the old Shea Stadium to the 72nd Street Subway.

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

Co-Presented by the City Museum and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, Letters to Afar is America's first exhibition of an immersive video art installation based on home movies made by New York City's Jewish immigrants who traveled back to visit Poland during the 1920s and 30s. 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.

Judith Scott: Bound and Unbound - Brooklyn Museum Through March 29, 2015
Focusing on Scott's critically acclaimed fiber-wrapped, three-dimensional constructions, the exhibition features more than sixty works, including a selection of works on paper. Judith Scott was in her mid-40s when she began making art at Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, California. Born with Down syndrome, and largely deaf and mute, she was institutionalized in Ohio for thirty-five years before her twin sister introduced her to Creative Growth's unique studio program for artists with developmental disabilities in 1987. 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.

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...)
