Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Museum of Modern Art  •  27 July - 2 November 2014
 

With a career spanning 35 years, Christopher Williams (born 1956) now stands as one of the leading contemporary artists engaged in photography. . Deeply invested in the techniques and history of photography, Williams is just as profoundly committed to contemporary art as a forum for intellectual inquiry and thoughtful opposition—resisting, for example, a capitalist society in which photographs typically act as agents of consumer spectacle. This exhibition—a multipart installation conceived by the artist that spans three gallery spaces on three floors of the museum—is Williams’s first retrospective.

The survey begins with films from Williams’s studies at the California Institute of the Arts, where he earned his MFA in 1981 and took classes with John Baldessari and Michael Asher. Alongside the films and SOURCE (1981), Williams’s first mature work, is a classic early piece, Angola to Vietnam* (1989), shown in its 27-part entirety, as well as works of the 1990s, mainly from For Example: Die Welt ist schön (1993–2001), an eight-year project inspired in part by the 1920s photographs of Albert Renger-Patzsch.

Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  American Museum of Natural History  •  5 April 2014 - 4 January 2015
 

Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, a new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History explores the world of these extraordinary flying reptiles, the first back-boned animals to evolve powered flight. As long as dinosaurs walked the Earth, pterosaurs—ranging from the size of a sparrow to that of a small airplane—ruled the skies until they went extinct 66 million years ago.

The largest exhibition ever presented in the United States about these animals, Pterosaurs highlights the latest research by Museum scientists and leading paleontologists around the world. It also features rare pterosaur fossils from Germany, the United States, and Brazil as well as casts, life-size models, videos, and interactive exhibits that immerse visitors in the mechanics of pterosaur flight.

The exhibition is overseen by Curator Mark Norell, chair of the Division of Paleontology, who conducts pterosaur research in Romania, China, and Mongolia, with Co-curator Alexander Kellner, a Museum research associate and paleontologist at the Museu Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
