Events in Art and Archaeology

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.

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.

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Samuel J. Friedman Theatre  •  16 December 2014 - 15 March 2015
 
 

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.

Turing went on to assist with the development of the some of the earliest computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal.
