Daniil Trifonov Kremerata Baltica - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
April 25, 2018 - New York City

The Guardian has cited Daniil Trifonov's virtuosity, calling it "elegant and purposeful, [with] every trick deployed to summon new colors, rather than as an end itself." Trifonov and the Kremerata Baltica showcase Chopin's complete music for piano and orchestra in this concert. From the sheer brio of the Variations on "Là ci darem" from Mozart's Don Giovanni—which inspired Schumann to comment, "Hats off, gentlemen! A genius!"—to the poetry of the Piano Concerto No. 1, Chopin's mastery has no better advocate than Trifonov.

Whiteside Foundation Series - Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall
April 25, 2018 - New York

Performers Artists to be announced

Olivia Kapoor - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

The paintings of American Inter-Dimensional Visionary artist Olivia Kapoor offer ethereal meditations on the nature of time and emotion interpreted through color, geometry, and texture. Working predominantly in acrylic, oil, and pastel, the artist constructs highly saturated canvases that defy traditional, realist expressions of color. Her overall oeuvre blends contemporary painting techniques with the style of Surrealist and Impressionist masters such as Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet. Kapoor describes her technique as "relaxed and meditative." She explains: "My state of mind and how I feel emotionally contribute greatly to the work itself, how it comes together, and how long it takes.... The great thing about the end result is that it is able to speak for itself, tell a story, communicate something to the viewer." The artist's compelling juxtapositions of pattern and texture are at once immersive and dynamic, thus inviting the viewer into the continuously evolving, dream-like world Kapoor cultivates through paint.

Stefano Sanna - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Miguel A. Chavez | Ali Cockburn | Ana Dávila | Barbara Demsar | Marianne Durach | Manuel Jiménez Palma | Olivia Kapoor | Sergey Klychkov | Alexander Ossipov (TOTUR) | Matus Prochaczka (WEKOWORKS) | Stefano Sanna | Gordana Tomic | Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer | Donald Woodman

Sergey Klychkov - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Sergey Klychkov's paintings are both whimsical and profound, studious and spontaneous. Focusing mainly on portraiture, Klychkov is especially skilled at delineating the expressive details of the human face. While preferencing fine art over illustration, his paintings nevertheless suggest narratives. This comes most to light when his work portrays cartoonishly mismatched juxtapositions of phenomena in fantastical landscapes, implying roots in a highly-developed fictional history. In The Moons (2015), Klychkov's use of oil paints lends his subject a folkloric aspect. Portraying a lunar fantasia, two female nudes are seated atop the roofs of houses, while two more fly in air. A fifth female figure rides on a purple horse through in the center of the scene. The warped spatial distortion of the figures' limbs, as well as the houses, give the image a dionysian feel, while Klychkov's color palette blankets this energy in an ashen-hued tranquility. While verging on the illustrative, the viewer can only imagine the backstory behind such a work. Taken in by the almost littoral calm of the painting, the viewer might feel caught up in the same insouciance with which the two women loll on a... (read more)

Manuel Jiménez Palma - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Spanish artist Manuel Jiménez Palma uses pastels to capture quotidian scenes, imbuing the ordinary with uninhibited emotional affect. He utilizes a high-keyed, exaggerated palette and emphasizes mark making over realism, giving his works a sense of spontaneity. Drawing directly onto paper without sketching, Palma manipulates the shapes and colors in his compositions to create entirely subjective scenes that challenge perception. In works such as Beers in Andalusia., Palma images the aftermath of a small gathering, the intense red, ochre, violet, and aqua palette mirroring the exuberance of the artist. Meanwhile, Sleeping in the Yard., captures the attitude of a languid, napping cat, its surrounds transformed into a highly patterned and richly decorative abstraction. In Roofs of Seville., Palma renders the Spanish town's skyline in pared down shapes of bold, unmodulated color, his confident mark making and vibrant palette indicating the energy of the bustling town. In each work, Palma utilizes the emotionality of brilliant color to suffuse conventional scenes with radical subjectivity.

Barbara Demsar - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

In her playful abstract landscapes, Barbara Demsar paints the natural world with a vivid, childlike optimism. Harmonious, bright, and airy, her lemon yellow and eggshell compositions are littered with delicate doodles, dots of pigment, and whimsical, collaged shapes. These distinctive narratives reflect the artist's perception of the real world; her subjective philosophies are expressed via a unique and joyful pictorial language. Demsar's melodious landscapes share a roster of recurring symbols. In addition to thin loops and sinuous lines, tiny infinity symbols, three point crowns, and hollow half rings appear throughout her works, lending a sense of connectedness to each buoyant composition. Furthermore, Landscape and Good Morning Sun each feature markers of a horizon line and a sun, as well as various other duplicated visual signifiers that remain mysterious. There Somewhere is a hazier composition featuring small clusters of evocative shapes atop a subtly printed background. Finally, Here and Now utilizes an all over composition, and bright red flecks and dabs of paint punctuate the golden, textured background.

Gordana Tomic - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Gordana Tomic's large-scale, abstract works are at once energetic, gestural, and profound in meaning. Working in predominantly acrylic, oil, and mixed media on canvas, Tomic utilizes a monochrome palette and an abstract expressionist gesture that transcribes raw, unsullied emotion into highly saturated and autographically textured compositions. Upon first glance, the majority of Tomic's oeuvre appears altogether abstract; however, in many of her works, the artist adroitly conceals figurative elements within an all-over composition brimming with color and texture. In works such as Poseidon Palette (2017), layered tones of navy, cobalt blue, and white writhe, splash, and churn at the upper register of the composition, cascading downwards in weighty, vertical drips of pigment. In the center of the canvas, Poseidon's trident is faintly visible, seamlessly blended with its abstract surroundings. Inspired by her Mediterranean background, Tomic explains: "I truly believe that all the seas are mine, like I named my latest exhibition. I have a purpose in this Universe to try many techniques, to touch every emotion and bring it to the canvas as it is, as it should be, as I read it and fee... (read more)

Matus Prochaczka creates vivid renderings of futuristic automobiles in his works that blend digital art and traditional painting techniques. Using acrylic sprays, acrylic paint, and a palette knife, the artist embellishes his digitally printed inventions with painterly streaks and smears that evoke speed. Modeled on sophisticate computer software, the metallic cars have razor sharp edges and finely wrought details, but it is the artist's hand that injects the works with dynamism. Prochaczka's 14_Fernando Alonso at Virtual Track features a slick Formula One racer whirring through space. Though the artist designs the cars himself, he maintains the logos and sponsors seen on typical Formula One cars in order to evoke the mix of fanaticism and nostalgia associated with the sport. 33_Max Verstappen Night Race depicts a space age car that is almost completely abstracted, blurred nearly beyond recognition by threateningly fast speeds. Speed is further emphasized with strong strokes of acrylics and spray paint in the artist's most recent work, 29_Alonso INDY500, a digital print with the glimpse of a driver in a split second as he races along the Indianapolis 500 track.

Miguel A. Chavez - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Miguel A. Chavez's calming paintings invite his audience to consider the bucolic beauty within the everyday experience. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, the majority of Chavez's oeuvre encompasses highly detailed renderings of neighborhood facades executed with softly textured brushstrokes and compositional clarity. In works such as San Diego House, white stucco bungalows thatched with terra-cotta roof tiles and turquoise wooden shutters lay nestled within Californian eucalyptus and palm trees. In Colorado House History Museum, a large log cabin, its edges lined with a white wooden trim, peers bashfully towards the audience amidst a curtain of Coloradan tree leaves, standing upon a carpet of clay and stone. Born and raised in Córdoba, Argentina, Chavez has traveled to and lived within areas of Mexico and Canada; the artist's Latin heritage emanates throughout his illustrious oeuvre. Chavez's works have been displayed in a multitude of private collections and institutions in cities across the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, and throughout the continent of Europe. The artist currently resides in San Diego, California.

In Beauty it is Finished Drawings 1951-2008 - Gagosian
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Gagosian is pleased to present the first career-spanning exhibition of drawings and works on paper by Cy Twombly, organized in association with the Cy Twombly Foundation. Throughout his career, Twombly sustained an active engagement with drawing, gesture, and making marks on paper. His urgent, meandering lines embody the intimate energies that carry over into his paintings, sculptures, and photography. Despite their enigmatic qualities, Twombly’s drawings are strikingly articulate in their rhythm, line, and allusions. At once economical and deeply sensual, they contain a timeless language, mediating between ancient and modern culture.

Daniil Trifonov, Piano Gautier Capuçon, Cello Kremerata Baltica - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
April 26, 2018 - New York City

The legato lines, delicate ornamentations, and colors that grace Chopin's solo piano works are also found in his music for other instruments. There is not a single composition by him that does not involve the keyboard, including a small handful of works that prominently feature the cello. The Introduction and Polonaise brillante and Cello Sonata in G Minor are two of these rarities. While the former is a sparkling showpiece, the latter is an intense, highly emotive work. One of his early compositions, Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 is also noteworthy for its Romantic middle movement and rollicking finale: a zesty Polish mazurka.

Evgeny Kissin, Piano Emerson String Quartet - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
April 27, 2018 - New York City

Pianist Evgeny Kissin makes a rare foray into chamber music when he partners with the Emerson String Quartet. The serious tone, flashes of drama, and technically challenging roles Mozart assigns to each player makes his Piano Quartet in G Minor—the first notable work for this combination of instruments—a groundbreaking composition. Fauré's quartet is high spirited with an abundance of lyricism, passion, and an especially robust role for the pianist. Striking melodies, vigorous rhythms, great depth of feeling, and hints of Czech folk music are the Dvo?ák trademarks present in his large-scaled quintet.

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the m... (read more)

Religion, biography, poetry, and fiction followed.

Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another.

But by the time they were killed within two months of each other in 1968, their worlds had come together. Images taken by some of the most renowned photojournalists of the era?alongside original correspondence, publications, and ephemera?illustrate the overlapping trajectory of their lives, exploring their deepening tie as well as how their interests expanded beyond civil rights and organized crime to encompass shared concerns for the poor and opposition to the war in Vietnam.

Peter Hujar: Speed of Life - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a boh... (read more)

On March 8, 2018, Neue Galerie New York will present "Before the Fall: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s," an exhibition devoted to the development of the arts in Germany and Austria during a decade marked by economic crisis, political disintegration, and social chaos. The Neue Galerie is the sole venue for the show, which will be on view through May 28, 2018.? The exhibition is organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, University Professor at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, and serves as the third show in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Peters that focus on German history. The first of these three shows, "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany 1937," organized in 2014, examined the infamous traveling exhibition "Entartete Kunst" mounted by the National Socialist regime. The exhibition was an enormous popular and critical success. The second show, "Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" on view in 2015, explored the critical role played by the city of Berlin in the growth of modern culture. Pandiscio Green is the designer of the exhibition and catalogue for "Before the Fall," and was also responsible for the inventive installations for the previous two shows in ... (read more)

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife - New York Historical Society
Through July 15, 2018 - Upper West Side

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife, an exhibition exploring the history of the ground-breaking Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, examines the circumstances that inspired early environmentalists—many of them women and New Yorkers—to champion the protection of endangered birds. Administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Migratory Bird Act prohibited the hunting, killing, trading, and shipping of migratory birds. It also regulated the nation's commercial plume trade, which had decimated many American bird species to the point of near extinction.

Terry Winters Forces and Fictions - The Drawing Center
Through July 29, 2018 - Soho

A leading figure in the art world for four decades, Terry Winters became well known in the 1980s for his materially-conscious drawings and paintings. Representing the patterns and schema that undergird physical and intellectual life—French philosopher Gilles Deleuze is cited as an important reference—Winters's drawings of grids, networks, and knots illustrate complex encounters between biological drives, technological systems, and mental processes. The Drawing Center's Main Gallery will present an overview of Winters's drawings from 1980 to the present including full cycles of drawings, such as File Drawings (2009), as well as a selection of large-scale works on paper that foreground the overarching theme of Winters's practice: the desire to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received. Rather than offering a comprehensive drawing retrospective, the show will be organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the gallery, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images.

Compass Song - Times Square
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Ti... (read more)

Derrick Adams: Sanctuary - MAD Museum of Art and Design
Through August 12, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image.Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America.

Surface/Depth - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 09, 2018 - New York

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro's signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women's domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro's femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women's work. Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro's subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find i...

AMNH to Open Amazon Adventure in 3D Digital March 9 - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 13, 2018 - New York

Amazon Adventure traces the extraordinary journey of 19th-century naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates—the most influential scientist you’ve never heard of—who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance, and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into his fascinating study of animal mimicry, the phenomenon in which one animal adopts the look of another. Filmed on location, Amazon Adventure plunges audiences into a wild world of breathtaking beauty and captivating animals, including an array of nature’s masters of mimicry. Painstakingly researched for three years, the film enlisted the expertise of more than 100 scientists and historical advisers. The team’s commitment to authenticity not only resulted in this rigorous re-creation, even using actual instruments and tools from the 1850s, but the writing team also incorporated many of Bates’ own words, as he was a gifted stor...

La Frontera - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 23, 2018 - New York

Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction.

Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes - New York Historical Society
Through October 08, 2018 - Upper West Side

Shoes in recent years have culturally transcended their utilitarian purpose to become an object of desire and deliberation, calling up abstract considerations—like the freighted meanings of femininity, power, domination, and aspiration—for both women and men alike. Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes highlights examples from the shoe designer's extensive private collection, assembled over three decades. The exhibition considers the story of the shoe from the perspectives of collection, consumption, presentation, and production with more than 100 pairs of shoes on view. The exhibition will explore larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women's contributions as makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Coordinated by Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History, with Edward Maeder, consulting curator, and Jeanne Gardner Gutierrez, curatorial coordinator.

Susan York Foundation - The Drawing Center
Through October 18, 2018 - Soho

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence
