Through July 22, 2018 - New York

Uraeus, Anselm Kiefer's first site-specific outdoor public sculpture ever to be commissioned for the United States will be on display this spring at the top of the Channel Gardens, facing Fifth Avenue. Ureaus, presented by Gagosian and organized by Public Art Fund and Tishman Speyer, consists of a gigantic open book with eagle's wings 30 feet in span, both made of lead, on top of a 20-foot-tall lead-clad stainless steel column. Clustered around the base of the column are further outsize lead books, while a large snake coils up the column. Lead is one of the artist's preferred materials for its soft, fluid properties traditionally associated with alchemical transformation, especially its second stage: dissolution. Kiefer is the most prominent German artist of the generation born in or shortly after World War II, a figure of international standing who was recently awarded the J. Paul Getty Medal (2017). The sculpture's cryptic title, Uraeus, refers to the erect shape of the Egyptian cobra, associated with the serpent goddess Wadjet and a symbol of power and divine authority. The wings evoke the headdresses and necklaces worn by Egyptian royalty in homage to the vulture goddess ... (read more)

Marking the culmination of their residency at Abrons Arts Center, Not an edge but a hinge presents works across a range of media, including painting, sculpture, video, and site-specific installation, and is organized by AIRspace curatorial residents Christian Camacho-Light and Alexis Wilkinson. Aligning with Abrons' wide-ranging multidisciplinary performance and educational programming, Not an edge but a hinge attends to difference within shared time and space. Occupying the building's three main galleries, the exhibition takes a kaleidoscopic approach in order to honor the complex and shifting affinities between individual artworks. In the exhibition, several works withhold the figure from view, privileging the outline or trace over direct representation, investigating notions of disclosure or voyeurism. Others establish an indexical, material, or metaphorical relationship to place, often marking displacement or loss.... (read more)

Little Rock - Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
Through August 05, 2018 - New York

This docudrama with music chronicles the true story of nine brave students poised to integrate the formerly all-white Little Rock Central High School. At the dawn of the civil rights movement, three years after Thurgood Marshall successfully litigated the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case, Little Rock, Arkansas became ground zero in the fight to integrate public schools across America. Through a series of events and with the aid of an emerging technology called television, living rooms across the world would witness a real life drama featuring a brave and stalwart group of black teenagers, who would become known as The Little Rock Nine, along with a supporting cast including a defiant Governor, a resolute President Eisenhower, and 11,000 federal and state troops. Integrating Little Rock Central High School would become an important and dramatic prerequisite step in implementing the new federal law. Successfully completing the school year would become its ultimate test. N.B. Strong language To receive and email alert when tickets go on sale, sign up here!

Being: New Photography 2018 - The Museum of Modern Art
Through August 19, 2018 - Manhattan

Every two years, MoMA's celebrated New Photography exhibition series presents urgent and compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year's edition, Being, asks how photography can capture what it means to be human. At a time when questions about the rights, responsibilities, and dangers inherent in being represented—and in representing others—are being debated around the world, the works featured in Being call attention to assumptions about how individuals are depicted and perceived. Many challenge the conventions of photographic portraiture, or use tactics such as masking, cropping, or fragmenting to disorient the viewer. In others, snapshots or found images are taken from their original context and placed in a new one to reveal hidden stories. While some of the works might be considered straightforward representations of individuals, others do not include images of the human body at all. Together, they explore how personhood is expressed today, and offer timely perspectives on issues of privacy and exposure; the formation of communities; and gender, heritage, and psychology. Exploring new ground and the many forms that the photographic image can take, ... (read more)

The exhibit includes glass and mosaics from the Haworth Collection in Accrington, England, the hometown of Tiffany's glass foreman, rare textiles from the Mark Twain House, rarely seen early paintings from the Brooklyn and Nassau County Museums and furniture and decorative arts from the Driehaus and other notable private collections.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Visions of Hawai'I - The New York Botanical Garden
Through October 28, 2018 - Bronx

Pioneering American modernist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887–1986) conveyed a distinct sense of place with innovative depictions of her surroundings, from stark New Mexican landscapes to New York cityscapes.

Curated by Theresa Papanikolas, Ph.D., of the Honolulu Museum of Art, this landmark exhibition will offer a rare focus on 20 of O'Keeffe's depictions of Hawai'i from a nine-week sojourn in 1939 while on commission to produce images for a Hawaiian Pineapple Company promotional campaign. A lush exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory of Hawaiian flora and a stunning display in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Art Gallery that includes more than 15 of O'Keeffe's Hawai'i paintings—not seen together in New York since their debut in 1940—will spotlight a transformative experience in the legendary artist's life, revealing O'Keeffe's deeply felt impressions and the enduring influence of the Islands' dramatic landscapes and exotic plants.
