Victor Man
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Gladstone Gallery  •  8 March - 18 April 2015
 
 

Gladstone Gallery presents an exhibition of paintings by Victor Man. The exhibition includes several works from Man’s series, The Chandler, presented for the first time in the United States. Paintings in this series portray a seated, decapitated figure holding its head in its lap. The series’ title refers to the medieval term for candle-maker, one who cuts off the top of a candle in order to light it. As in much of Man’s work, “The Chandler” series alludes to historic motifs, in particular the Greek acéphale.

In the other works in the exhibition, multiple references co-exist, from Italian Pre-Renaissance painting to forms of primitivism. The references within these paintings bear a constant sense of repression of reality, which proliferated in Europe during the early avant-garde period at the beginning of the twentieth century.

A catalogue with a narrative by Torsten Slama will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.

Victor Man was born in 1974 and lives in Berlin, Germany and Cluj, Romania.

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.

Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Brooklyn Museum  •  20 February - 24 May 2015
 

The works presented in Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic raise questions about race, gender, and the politics of representation by portraying contemporary African American men and women using the conventions of traditional European portraiture. The exhibition includes an overview of the artist’s prolific fourteen-year career and features sixty paintings and sculptures.

Wiley's signature portraits of everyday men and women riff on specific paintings by Old Masters, replacing the European aristocrats depicted in those paintings with contemporary black subjects, drawing attention to the absence of African Americans from historical and cultural narratives.

The subjects in Wiley's paintings often wear sneakers, hoodies, and baseball caps, gear associated with hip-hop culture, and are set against contrasting ornate decorative backgrounds that evoke earlier eras and a range of cultures.

John Newsom
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Marc Strauss  •  18 February - 22 March 2015
 
 
According to the press statement for this show, American artist John Newsom  (b. 1970, Hutchinson, Kansas) is a mid-career painter in full power. Beneath his thick and sensuous painted renderings of flora and fauna, is a grappling with the giants of abstraction. In Newsom's 2015 catalog of work from the past 10 years to the present exhibition, critic Barry Schwabsky writes in his essay, "what keeps ‘strong painting’ from becoming merely muscle bound - is Newsom’s secret weapon: the discipline that comes from considering himself, not a painter of images, but rather an abstractionist … to appreciate his paintings is … to engage with their surfaces of purely sensual incident.”

Buddhist Art of Myanmar
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Asia Society  •  10 February - 10 May 2015
 
The exhibition comprises approximately 70 spectacular works—including stone, bronze and wood sculptures, textiles, paintings, and lacquer ritual implements—from the fifth through the early twentieth century. Artworks include objects created for temples, monasteries, and personal devotion, which are presented in their historical and ritual contexts. The exhibition explores how Buddhist narratives were communicated visually and the multiplicity of regional styles. Many of the works in the exhibition have never been shown outside of Myanmar. Works are on loan from the National Museum of Myanmar in Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw; Bagan Archeological Museum; Sri Ksetra Archaeological Museum, Hmawza; and the Kaba Aye Buddhist Museum, as well as works from public and private collections in the United States.

Buddhism was established in Myanmar around 500 CE or the middle of the first millennium, centuries after the Buddha’s demise in India. The faith was likely brought to Myanmar by Indian monks and traders during their interactions with local kingdoms. Lower Myanmar was then in the hands of the Mon, while Upper Myanmar was ruled by the Pyu. These two major ethnic groups were eclipsed by Bamar-speaking peoples who had begun to filter into Upper Myanmar by the beginning of the second millennium. The Bamar created their capital overlooking the Irrawaddy River at Pagan, or Bagan, where a frenzy of Buddhist devotion resulted in the construction of over two thousand brick temples, stupas, and monasteries. While Pagan’s art owed a strong and undeniable debt to eastern India, its sculptors, painters, and architects forged a distinctive aesthetic, which in later centuries diverged completely from Indian modes.

Esko Männikkö: Time Flies
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Yancey Richardson  •  29 January - 14 March 2015
 
The selection of works on view is drawn from Finnish photographer Esko Männikkö's current museum retrospective, which originated in Finland at the Kunsthalle Helsinki and is travelling to Collezione Maramotti, Italy; Huis Marseilles, Amsterdam; and Gothenburg Museum of Art, Sweden.  Männikkö was previously the winner of the 2008 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, the first time a Finnish artist has been recipient of this prestigious award.
 
As a self-taught artist, Männikkö counts few stylistic precedents or influences, and though his interest in the residue of everyday life is the foundation of his image making, his formalism lends itself to metaphoric or existential modes of interpretation. Time Flies includes a range of images - abandoned cars, cemetery portrait sculpture, discarded family photographs - whose subjects bear witness to the passage of time and serve as a poignant meditation on the inevitable collapse of all material things, human or inanimate. In the Time Flies retrospective catalog essay, art historian Liz Wells suggests that Männikkö’s imagery moves “from social documentary towards a more expressionist formal aesthetic, and from the more specifically located to a more generalized engagement with the nature of existence.”

Madame Cézanne
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  19 November 2014 - 15 March 2015
 
This exhibition of paintings, drawings, and watercolors by Paul Cézanne (French, 1839–1906) traces his lifelong attachment to Hortense Fiquet (French, 1850–1922), his wife, the mother of his only son, and his most painted model. Featuring twenty-four of the artist's twenty-nine known portraits of Hortense, including Madame Cézanne in the Conservatory (1891) and Madame Cézanne in a Red Dress (1888–90), both from the Metropolitan Museum's collection, the exhibition explores the profound impact she had on Cézanne's portrait practice.

Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art: Speaking of People
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Studio Museum in Harlem  •  13 November 2014 - 8 March 2015
 
Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art explores the ways contemporary artists use Ebony and Jet as a resource and as inspiration in their practices. Published by Johnson Publishing Company for over sixty years, both magazines are cultural touchstones for many African Americans and often represent a commonality between people of diverse backgrounds. Considering Ebony and Jet from a variety of perspectives—as journalistic material and important documenters of black life, as metaphor for African-American culture and as theoretical spaces for black thought and exchange—the exhibition examines the magazines’ material and cultural legacy as artists perceive them.

Inherent Vice
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Angelika Film Center & Café  •  22 February - 8 March 2015
 
 
Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin...well, easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused - except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists.

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson

Nick Payne: Constellations
Directed by Michael Longhurst

Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Nightcrawler) and two-time Olivier Award winner Ruth Wilson (The Affair, Luther) make their MTC and Broadway debuts in the first American production of Constellations, a new play by Nick Payne (If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet), which premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre.

This romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman (Gyllenhaal and Wilson). But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know – delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.
