by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

The Brooklyn Museum continues its long tradition of focusing on Brooklyn-based artists with a major survey featuring more than 100 works by 35 artists or artist groups who live and/or work in Brooklyn. The exhibit features work in virtually every medium, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, video, and performance. While most of the exhibition takes place in the galleries and on the grounds of the Brooklyn Museum, there is also programming off-site in the streets, waterways, and other public spaces of Brooklyn.


Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs - American Museum of Natural History Through January 04, 2015
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

Discover a world where pterosaurs soared overhead in this exciting new exhibition. A diverse group with more than 150 known species ranging from the size of a sparrow to that of a fighter jet, pterosaurs appeared 220 million years ago and survived for more than 150 million years before becoming extinct. What sets them apart from their dinosaur contemporaries is their adaptation for flying, a unique trait visitors will explore through multiple interactive exhibits. Visitors can also investigate pterosaur models, casts, and fossils and find out how these extraordinary ancient vertebrates moved on land and in the air, how they hunted, and what scientists are discovering about them today. Visitors will also glimpse the pterosaurs' ancient world in a dramatic diorama re-creating an inland sea in Brazil where pterosaurs, fishes, crocodiles, and other species co-existed millions of years ago.

Gilded New York - Museum of the City of New York Through January 04, 2015
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

Inaugurating the Museum's Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery, Gilded New York explores the city's visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. In New York, this era was marked by the sudden rise of industrial and corporate wealth, amassed by such titans as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Jay Gould, who expressed their high status through extravagant fashions, architecture, and interior design. The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels. It was a time when New York became the nation's corporate headquarters and a popular Ladies' Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence.


Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt - Brooklyn Museum Through December 31, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

An exhibition exploring the roles of cats, lions, and other feline creatures in Egyptian mythology, kingship, and everyday life.

Now, nearly thirty diverse representations of felines from the world-famous Egyptian holdings of the Brooklyn Museum will be on view.


The Eve of Porn: Linda Lovelace - Museum of Sex Through December 09, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

In 1972, Deep Throat, the tale of a woman whose clitoris was located in the back of her throat, became a trailblazer of the pornographic genre. Performing acts of graphic sex on camera, including the signature act of "deep throating," Linda Lovelace, born Linda Boreman, became a household name. Considered "Porn Chic," screenings of Deep Throat were attended by celebrities from Jackie O to Jack Nicholson. Linda became both the girl everyone wanted to attend their party and the girl that everyone wanted to have sex with, a star studded list including Hugh Hefner, Ted Kennedy and Paul Newman.


Early American Guitars: The Instruments of C. F. Martin - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through December 07, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

Christian Frederick Martin, founder of the great American guitar firm C. F. Martin & Co., was the son of a cabinetmaker in Markneukirchen, Saxony. Martin learned to build instruments from the famed Johann Georg Stauffer in Vienna. Due to the restrictive guilds in Markneukirchen, Martin moved to the United States in 1833, settling first in New York City and later moving to Nazareth, Pennsylvania. In the United States, Martin encountered the Spanish-style guitar and incorporated elements from that tradition into his own Viennese style of instrument construction. The result was a new form of the guitar, a style that would become important as a basis for other American makers of the instrument. This exhibition includes approximately thirty-five instruments from the Martin Museum in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and several private collections.


Willem van Genk: Mind Traffic - American Folk Art Museum Through November 30, 2014

A Brief History of New York: Selections from A History of New York in 101 Objects - New-York Historical Society Through November 30, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

This exhibition assembles objects from the N-YHS collection chosen by New York Times urban affairs correspondent Sam Roberts, which together constitute a unique history of New York. By turns provocative, iconic, and ironic, and winnowed from hundreds of possibilities, his selections share the criteria of having played some transformative role in the city's history.

'To The Inhabitants of Great Britain': The Robert R. Livingston Letters - New-York Historical Society Through November 07, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 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.


The Roof Garden Commission: Dan Graham with Gunther Vogt - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through November 02, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 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
by Directories Editor - October 20, 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.


New Netherland at 400: Unlocking the Secrets of the 1914 Time Capsule - New-York Historical Society Through October 26, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 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.


American Museum of Natural History Presents The 2014 Margaret Mead Film Festival: “Past Forward” - American Museum of Natural History Through October 26, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

The Margaret Mead Film Festival, themed “Past Forward,” explores how cultural touchstones needn’t be trapped in amber but can serve as important guides for modern life, during its 2014 program from October 23 to October 26. Featuring a broad spectrum of creative storytelling—including interactive documentaries, performances, and a multi-media installation—the Mead Festival strives to illuminate the diversity of peoples and cultures from around the world, and offers intimate forums for discussion with filmmakers, film protagonists, and world-renowned scholars. How do traditions help cultures survive and thrive? Answering that question from a variety of perspectives is at the core of the 2014 Margaret Mead Film Festival. This year, the festival’s selections—more than 40 films from 28 countries—will focus on how tradition moves cultural values and identities forward while seizing relevance to support contemporary life issues. The four-day festival will screen more than 40 films and feature diverse forums, remarkable performances, and lively parties.


Men in Armor: El Greco and Pulzone Face to Face - Frick Collection Through October 26, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 2014

The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy: British Art and Design from the Metropolitan's Collection - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through October 26, 2014
by Directories Editor - October 20, 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.
