Trenton Doyle Hancock : Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Studio Museum in Harlem  •  26 March - 28 June 2015
 
 
 The exhibition is the first in-depth examination of the artist’s extensive body of drawings, collages and works on paper. For over two decades, Hancock has immersed himself in drawing, testing the elasticity of the medium with a keen sense of humor. Hancock was born in 1974 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He lives and works in Houston, Texas. In 2007, Hancock was the recipient of The Studio Museum in Harlem’s Joyce Alexander Wein Artist Prize. Organized by the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH), Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawings is curated by Valerie Cassel Oliver, Senior Curator. The Studio Museum’s presentation is organized by Lauren Haynes, Associate Curator, Permanent Collection.

Fatal Attraction: Piotr Uklański Photographs
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Metropolitan Museum of Art,  •  17 March - 16 August 2015
 
 
Fatal Attraction: Piotr Uklański Photographs is the first survey of the Polish-born, New York-based artist’s photography. Known for working in a wide variety of media including installation, fiber art, resin paintings, and collage, Uklański (born 1968) invests overlooked and exhausted styles with new meanings—and similarly explores clichéd or obsolete photographic languages. Nearly half of the works on display in the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibition are from The Joy of Photography (1997-2007), the artist’s little-known series.

Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces from Florence Cathedral
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Museum of Biblical Art  •  20 February - 14 June 2015
 
Twenty-three masterpieces of early Florentine Renaissance sculpture—most never seen outside Italy—are on view at MOBIA in New York as the centerpiece of the Museum’s tenth anniversary season. MOBIA is the sole world-wide venue for this exhibition. These works—by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco, Luca della Robbia and others—were made in the first decades of the fifteenth century for Florence Cathedral ("Il Duomo"), which was then in the last phase of its construction, and are figural complements to Brunelleschi’s soaring dome, conveying an analogous sense of courage and human potential. Like the dome, these statues of prophets and saints express the spiritual tension of a faith-driven humanism destined to transform Western culture.

The Museum of Modern Art acquired more than 300 photographs from Thomas Walther’s private collection in 2001.

Warriors and Mothers: Epic Mbembe Art
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  9 December 2014 - 7 September 2015
 
The figures created by Mbembe master carvers from southeastern Nigeria are among the earliest and most visually dramatic wood sculptures preserved from sub-Saharan Africa. Created between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, and striking for their synthesis of intense rawness and poetry, these representations of seated figures—mothers nurturing their offspring and aggressive male warriors—were originally an integral part of monumental carved drums positioned at the epicenter of spiritual life, the heartbeat of Mbembe communities.
