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.

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.

The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky.
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  7 March - 10 May 2015

This exhibition unites Plains Indian masterworks found in European and North American collections, from pre-contact to contemporary, ranging from a two-thousand-year-old human-effigy stone pipe to contemporary paintings, photographs, and a video-installation piece. Works of art collected centuries ago by French traders and travelers will be seen together with those acquired by Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition of 1804–06, along with objects from the early reservation period and recent works created in dialogue with traditional forms and ideas.

The distinct Plains aesthetic is revealed through an array of forms and media: painting and drawing; sculptural works in stone, wood, antler, and shell; porcupine-quill and glass-bead embroidery; feather work; painted robes depicting figures and geometric shapes; richly ornamented clothing; composite works; and ceremonial objects. Many nations, including Osage, Quapaw, Omaha, Crow, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Lakota, Blackfeet, Pawnee, Kiowa, Comanche, and Meskwaki are represented.

2015 Triennial: Surround Audience
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  New Museum  •  25 February - 24 May 2015
Featuring fifty-one artists from over twenty-five countries, Surround Audience pursues numerous lines of inquiry, including: What are the new visual metaphors for the self and subjecthood when our ability to see and be seen is expanding, as is our desire to manage our self-image and privacy? Is it possible to opt out of, bypass, or retool commercial interests that potentially collude with national and international policy? How are artists striving to embed their works in the world around them through incursions into media and activism? A number of artists in the exhibition are poets, and many more use words in ways that connect the current mobility in language with a mutability in form. The exhibition also gives weight to artists whose practices operate outside of the gallery—such as performance and dance—and to those who test the forums of marketing, comedy, and social media as platforms for art. The building-wide exhibition encompasses a variety of artistic practices, including sound, dance, comedy, poetry, installation, sculpture, painting, video, one online talk show, and an ad campaign.

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.

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.

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.

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Museum of Modern Art  •  13 December 2014 - 19 April 2015
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.
