Doomocracy
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Brooklyn Army Terminal  •  7 October - 6 November 2016
 

Doom•oc•ra•cy (dü-ˈmä-krə-sē), n.

1. A form of government in which the supreme power is vested in a tyrant by a terrified general electorate. 2. The esoteric arithmetic that makes the electoral process malleable. 3. A corporate coup d’état in slow motion. 4. Permanent global war waged in the name of freedom. 5. A house of political horrors at the Brooklyn Army Terminal.

Exchanging political fights for political frights, Creative Time and Pedro Reyes take over the Brooklyn Army Terminal this October in an exciting new collaboration. Doomocracy, a major new immersive installation by Reyes, will mark the confluence of two events haunting the American cultural imagination: Halloween and the presidential election. 

How much surveillance are we willing to accept? How much pollution? How much corporate malfeasance? Provoking what Reyes calls “political catharsis,” this immersive artwork will distill the horrors of our political landscape into the form of a haunted house, inviting us to navigate a maze of near apocalyptic torments, from climate change to pandemic gun violence to GMOs. Visitors to Doomocracy will work their way through a labyrinth of rooms, exploring the depth and breadth of American political anxieties.

Pedro Reyes (b. 1972, Mexico City) employs sculpture, performance, video, and activism to address pressing social and political issues. His works often promote individual and collective agency by inviting viewers to engage in participation and dialogue. Steeped in notions of structure and pedagogy, Reyes explores the means by which knowledge and empowerment are shared and communicated amongst individuals. By creating spaces for encounter, the artist produces the conditions by which to drive cultural change.

Reyes trained as an architect at the Ibero-American University in Mexico City. He has had solo shows at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Whitechapel Gallery, London; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the Guggenheim Museum, New York City, among others. His works have also been featured in group exhibitions such as dOCUMENTA 13 in Kassel, Germany (2012), the Liverpool Biennial in Liverpool, England (2012), and the 50th Venice Biennale (2003). Reyes was a participant in the 2013 Creative Time Summit, “Art, Place & Dislocation in the 21st Century City,” and has twice contributed writing to Creative Time Reports. In 2015, he was a recipient of the U.S. Department of State Medal of Arts in recognition of his “outstanding commitment and contributions to the Art in Embassies program and international cultural exchange.”

Fragonard: Drawing Triumphant—Works from New York Collections
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  6 October 2016 - 8 January 2017
 
Jean Honoré Fragonard (1732–1806) was equally skilled in painting, drawing, and etching. Unlike many old masters for whom drawing was a preparatory tool, Fragonard explored the potential of chalk, ink, and wash to create sheets that were works of art in their own right.

Among the 100 works on paper on view, nearly half are from private collections, some of which will be shown publicly for the first time.

The Expanded Subject: New Perspectives In Photographic Portraiture From Africa
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University.  •  7 September - 10 December 2016
 
From 19th-century studio practice through the independence era, African photography has best been known for modes of portraiture that crystallize subjects' identities and social milieus. Even contemporary art photographs are often interpreted as windows into African lives, whether actual or theatricalized.

This exhibition reconsiders African contemporary photographic portraiture by presenting the work of four artists whose concerns range beyond depicting social identity: Sammy Baloji, Mohamed Camara, Saïdou Dicko, and George Osodi. Works by these four artists lend greater thematic and formal versatility to the practice of portraiture.

Sammy Baloji (b. 1978, DRC) transfers colonial-archival figures to alternate backdrops—the post-colonial site of an abandoned mine, landscape paintings by colonial explorers—in order to activate historical awareness and challenge photographic authority.

Mohamed Camara (b. 1985, Mali) situates his pictures ambiguously between documentary and mise en scène as a means of interrogating photographic portraiture, including its processes and potentials, pleasures and pitfalls.

Saïdou Dicko (b. 1979, Burkina Faso) captures the shadow silhouettes of individuals on sunlit streets—a strategy that references photographic processes and unsettles portrait conventions, while still conveying subjects' expressivity.

George Osodi (b.1974, Nigeria) produces pictures whose anonymous or fictional subjects reveal dissonance with their surroundings, thereby examining human consequences of broader political phenomena.

Viewed together, works by Baloji, Camara, Dicko, and Osodi complicate common understandings of portraiture from Africa. Baloji's montages dislocating the subject historically, Camara's reflexive gaze, Dicko's uncertainty with respect to the possibility of representation, and Osodi's political commentary all expand the range of portraiture and offer new ways of contemplating photographic subjectivities.

Lenders to the exhibition: Sammy Baloji (Axis Gallery, New York); Mohamed Camara (Galerie Pierre Brullé, Paris); Saïdou Dicko; George Osodi; The Walther Collection, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Alma Thomas
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Studio Museum of Harlem  •  14 July - 30 October 2016
 

Alma Thomas examines the evolution of an artist who created a highly personal style that expanded upon traditional Abstract Expressionist and Washington Color School practices through experimentations with abstraction, color, line and pattern. Thomas, who focused on her artistic career after retiring as a school teacher at the age of 69, chartered her own course as an African-American woman within Washington D.C.’s largely white and male mid-20th century artistic community. She often cited natural elements as inspiration, and her signature style reflects the influences of Henri Matisse, Josef Albers, and Wassily Kandinsky—featuring loosely painted yet meticulously constructed canvases, filled with lattice works of bright color creating patterns from negative space.

The exhibition features works from every period in her career, including rarely exhibited watercolors and early abstractions, as well as her signature canvases drawn from a variety of private and public collections.

Watteau’s Soldiers: Scenes of Military Life in Eighteenth-Century France
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Frick Collection  •  12 July - 2 October 2016
 

Most know Jean-Antoine Watteau as a painter of amorous aristocrats and melancholy actors, a dreamer of exquisite parklands and impossibly refined fêtes. Few artists would seem further removed from the misery of war. And yet, early in his short career, Watteau created a number of military scenes—about a dozen paintings  and some thirty drawings. For the most part, they were executed during the War of the Spanish Succession (1701–14), which saw Louis XIV battle almost the whole of Europe in a bid to place his grandson, Philip, Duke of Anjou, on the Spanish throne. However, neither the turmoil of battle nor the suffering that ensued seems to have held much interest for Watteau. Instead, he focused on the prosaic aspects of military life—marches, halts, and encampments. The resulting works show quiet moments between the fighting, outside the regimented discipline of drills and battle, when soldiers could rest and daydream, smoke pipes and play cards. Although these themes are indebted to seventeenth -century Dutch and Flemish genre scenes, Watteau’s drawings and paintings are set apart by their focus on the common soldier. More than his predecessors, Watteau offers an intimate vision of war, one in which the human element comes to the fore. His soldiers are endowed with an inner life, with subjectivity.

On display are four of Watteau’s seven surviving military paintings and twelve red chalk studies, several of which are directly related to the paintings on view. Also included are works by Watteau’s predecessors and followers. Together, they shed light on Watteau’s unusual working method, affording the
 opportunity to probe what made his vision so distinctive.

Published by The Frick Collection in association with D Giles Ltd., the book accompanying the exhibition features an essay by the curator, Aaron Wile,and a complete catalogue of all known Watteau works related to military subjects, as well as a bibliography and an index.

Diane Arbus: In the Beginning
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  12 July - 27 November 2016
 

This exhibition features more than 100 photographs that together redefine Diane Arbus (American, 1923–1971), one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century. It focuses on the first seven years of her career, from 1956 to 1962, the period in which she developed the idiosyncratic style and approach for which she has been recognized praised, criticized, and copied the world over.

Arbus made most of her photographs in New York City, where she lived and died, and where she worked in locations such as Times Square, the Lower East Side, and Coney Island. Her photographs of children and eccentrics, couples and circus performers, female impersonators and Fifth Avenue pedestrians are among the most intimate and surprising images of the era.

The majority of the photographs in the exhibition have never before been seen and are part of the Museum's Diane Arbus Archive, acquired in 2007 by gift and promised gift from the artist's daughters, Doon Arbus and Amy Arbus.

BRUCE CONNER: IT’S ALL TRUE
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Museum of Modern Art  •  3 July - 2 October 2016
 
BRUCE CONNER: IT’S ALL TRUE is the first monographic museum exhibition in New York of the artist Bruce Conner, the first large survey of his work in 16 years, and the first comprehensive retrospective. The exhibition brings together over 250 objects in mediums including film and video, painting, assemblage, drawing, prints, photography, photograms, and performance.

An early practitioner of found-object assemblage and a pioneer of found-footage film, Conner was a singular member of both the underground film community and the flourishing San Francisco art world, achieving international standing early in his career. His work across a broad range of mediums touches pointedly on various themes of postwar American society, from the excesses of a burgeoning consumer culture to the dread of nuclear apocalypse.

Glenn Ligon: What We Said The Last Time
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Luhring Augustine  •  27 February - 2 April 2016
 

Luhring Augustine presents What We Said The Last Time, an exhibition of new work by Glenn Ligon, and Entanglements, a curatorial project by the artist. A companion exhibition entitled We Need To Wake Up Cause That’s What Time It Is opened at Luhring Augustine Bushwick on January 16th and remains on view through 17 April 2016. 

What We Said The Last Time features a suite of seventeen inkjet prints that document the paint-spattered pages of the artist’s well-worn copy of James Baldwin’s seminal 1953 essay “Stranger in the Village.” Written during a stay in a remote Swiss mountain hamlet, Baldwin’s text examines complex and urgent questions around blackness, culture, and history. Since 1996, Ligon has used the essay as the basis of his “Stranger” series, including prints, drawings, and dense paintings made with oil stick and often coal dust that oscillate between legibility and obscurity. While creating these canvases, Ligon kept pages of Baldwin’s essay on his studio table for reference, and over the years they became covered with random smudges of black paint, oil stains, and fingerprints. Intrigued by this accumulation of marks, Ligon transformed the book pages into a suite of large-scale prints, using the full text of the essay for the first time in his career. The resulting work is a palimpsest of accumulated personal histories that suggests Ligon’s long engagement with Baldwin’s essay, as well as a new strategy in his ongoing exploration of the interplay between language and abstraction.

Also on view is Entanglements, a curatorial project by Ligon that examines how artists use the studio as a base from which to engage momentous cultural shifts and political events in both direct and oblique ways.  Key to the exhibition is Bruce Nauman’s Violin Tuned D.E.A.D. (1968), a video that presents the artist repetitively playing a single note on a violin with his back to the camera. While discussions of Nauman’s video works from this period have focused on issues of performativity, endurance, and the body, Ligon was interested in how Nauman’s discordant note can be heard as a soundtrack to the war in Vietnam or the brutal violence faced by civil rights workers. While not directly commenting on these issues, the ominous soundscape of Violin Tuned D.E.A.D. nevertheless suggests Nauman’s engagement with that turbulent moment in American history and served as a point of departure for Ligon to consider other works in which the artist’s studio has acted as a conduit for contemporary events. Ligon’s selections posit new identities, conversations or modes of sociability as a response to pressing social and political issues.  Entanglements features artworks and ephemera by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, David Hammons, On Kawara, Glenn Ligon, Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Bob Thompson, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, and Andy Warhol. 

Glenn Ligon lives and works in New York.

The Titanosaur

In January 2016, the Museum added another must-see exhibit to its world-famous fossil halls: a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur. This species is so new that it has not yet been formally named by the paleontologists who discovered it.

Paleontologists suggest this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 70 tons. The species lived in the forests of today’s Patagonia about 100 to 95 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous period, and is one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered. 

The remains were excavated in the Patagonian desert region of Argentina by a team from the Museo Paleontologico Egidio Feruglio led by José Luis Carballido and Diego Pol, who received his Ph.D. degree in a joint program between Columbia University and the American Museum of Natural History. One of the 8-foot femurs, or thigh bones, found at the site is among five original fossils on temporary view with The Titanosaur.
