The Vietnam War: 1945-1975 at the New-York Historical Society

(October 05, 2017) - The decades-long conflict known as the Vietnam War was a daily fact of American life for so long, and divided the country so bitterly, it seems incredible that over half a century has passed since our major military involvement in it began – and that two generations have come of age since it ended. It is to those generations that the New-York Historical Society’s sweeping, artifacts-laden exhibition The Vietnam War: 1945-1975 is directed. (read the story...)

Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive at MoMA

(June 20, 2017) - The Guggenheim Museum was nearly colored pink. And made of marble, no less.

Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons at the Met Costume Institute

(May 05, 2017) - Rei Kawakubo, the founder of the Comme des Garçons brand, does clothes—or “objects for the body” as she’s called them—that are original, unconventional (to put it mildly), and weird (to put it bluntly). Incredibly shaped, fantastically constructed—or deconstructed—and category-defying, her creations make jaded fashion writers rave, ordinary folk go “huh?”, and curators like the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute’s Andrew Bolton say “belong in an art museum.” (read the story...)

Art in a Time of Chaos: Ancient Treasures Come to China Institute

(October 04, 2016) - Walking into Art in a Time of Chaos, you’re greeted by a group of little green men. Made of glazed porcelain, each individually carved, the 10 diminutive figures (the tallest is barely eight inches) represent musicians and a few listeners.
