About Face: Human Expression on Paper
NEW YORK  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  27 July - 13 December 2015
Drawn from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection of drawings, prints, and photographs, the diverse works in About Face: Human Expression on Paper—portraits, caricatures, representations of theater and war—reveal how expression underpinned narrative and provided a window onto the character and motivations of the subjects, the artists, and even their audiences. Using Charles Le Brun’s illustrations for Expressions of the Passions and Guillaume-Benjamin-Armand Duchenne de Boulogne and Adrien Tournachon’s photographic series as touchstones, the approximately 60 works dating from the 16th through the 19th century show how artists such as Hans Hoffmann, Francisco Goya, Jean-Baptiste Greuze, and Thomas Rowlandson explored the animated human face.

Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist
NEW YORK  •  Whitney Museum of American Art  •  2 October 2015 - 17 January 2016
Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist presents a full-scale survey of one the most important artists of the Harlem Renaissance, featuring the painter's visual examination of African American culture during the Jazz Age. The exhibition covers Motley's entire career, including periods in Chicago, Paris, and Mexico. Motley received his formal training at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and went on to create strong and somewhat solemn portraits of his community, as well as vividly hued, lively scenes of crowded dancehalls that reflect the colorful spirit of the Harlem Renaissance. The exhibition features a number of paintings depicting the black communities of Chicago and Paris just before and after the Great Depression, and concludes with introspective moments of quotidian life in Mexico, made during the artist's travels during the 1950s.

Commemorating Controversy: The Dakota–U.S. War of 1862
WASHINGTON, DC  •  The National Museum of the American Indian  •  14 January - 29 December 2015

In the late summer of 1862, a war raged across southern Minnesota between Dakota akicitas (warriors) and the U.S. military and immigrant settlers. In the end, hundreds were dead and thousands more would lose their homes forever. On December 26, 1862, 38 Dakota men were hung in Mankato, Minnesota, by order of President Abraham Lincoln. This remains the largest mass execution in United States history. The bloodshed of 1862 and its aftermath left deep wounds that have yet to heal. What happened 150 years ago continues to matter today.

Commemorating Controversy: The Dakota–U.S. War of 1862—an exhibition of 12 panels that explores the causes, voices, events, and long-lasting consequences of the conflict.

Greater New York
NEW YORK  •  MoMA PS1  •  11 October 2015 - 7 March 2016

MoMA PS1 presents the fourth iteration of its landmark exhibition series, begun as a collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art in 2000. Recurring every five years, the exhibition has traditionally showcased the work of emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area. Greater New York arrives in a city and art community that has changed significantly since the first version of the survey. With the rise of a robust commercial art market and the proliferation of art fairs, opportunities for younger artists in the city have grown alongside a burgeoning interest in artists who may have been overlooked in the art histories of their time. Concurrently, the city itself is being reshaped by a voracious real estate market that poses particular challenges to local artists. The speed of this change in recent years has stoked a nostalgia for earlier periods in New York—notably the 1970s and 1980s, and the experimental practices and attitudes that flourished in the city during those decades. Against this backdrop, Greater New York departs from the show's traditional focus on youth, instead examining points of connection and tension between our desire for the new and nostalgia for that which it displaces.

Bringing together emerging and more established artists, the exhibition occupies MoMA PS1's entire building with over 400 works by 157 artists, including programs of film and performance. Greater New York is co-organized by a team led by Peter Eleey, Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions and Programs, MoMA PS1; and including art historian Douglas Crimp, University of Rochester; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, MoMA; and Mia Locks, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1.

Considering the "greater” aspect of its title in terms of both geography and time, Greater New York begins roughly with the moment when MoMA PS1 was founded in 1976 as an alternative venue that took advantage of disused real estate, reaching back to artists who engaged the margins of the city. Together, the works in the exhibition employ a heterogeneous range of aesthetic strategies, often emphatically representing the city's inhabitants through forms of bold figuration, and foregrounding New York itself as a location of conflict and possibility.

Habsburg Splendor:: Masterpieces from Vienna's Imperial Collection
ATLANTA, GEORGIA  •  High Museum of Art  •  18 October 2015 - 17 January 2016
The exhibition showcases masterpieces and rare objects from the collection of the Habsburg Dynasty – the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire as well as many other superpowers of Europe who commissioned extraordinary artworks now in the collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Habsburg Splendor, largely composed of works that have never traveled outside of Austria, explores the dramatic rise and fall of the Habsburgs' global empire, from their political ascendance in the late Middle Ages to the height of their power in the 16th and 17th centuries, the expansion of the dynasty in the 18th and 19th centuries to its decline in 1918 at the end of World War I. More than 90 artworks and artifacts tell the story, including arms and armor, sculpture, Greek and Roman antiquities, court costumes, carriages, decorative art objects, and paintings by such masters as Correggio, Giorgione, Rubens, Tintoretto, Titian and Velázquez.

The Wrath of the Gods: Masterpieces by Rubens, Michelangelo, and Titian
PHILADELPHIA  •  Philadelphia Museum of Art  •  12 September 201 - 6 December 2015
The exhibition focuses on one of the finest works by the great Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640), Prometheus Bound. This ambitious, large-scale painting, described by the artist himself as “the flower of my stock,” is presented alongside works by the Renaissance and Baroque masters who inspired Rubens’s dramatic treatment of the eternal torment to which the Titan Prometheus was condemned by Zeus for giving the gift of fire to humanity. These include Michelangelo’s famous drawing of the Titan Tityus, on loan from the British Royal Collection, and Titian’s large canvas depicting the same subject from the collection of the Museo del Prado. Neither work has ever been displayed together with Prometheus Bound by Rubens.

We Speak: Black Artists in Philadelphia, 1920s-1970s
PHILADELPHIA  •  Woodmere Art Museum  •  26 September 2015 - 24 January 2016

This Fall Woodmere Art Museum presents We Speak: Black Artists in Philadelphia, 1920s – 1970s. The exhibition features over 70 paintings, photographs, sculptures, and prints produces by black artists living and working in Philadelphia during the roughly 50 year period. We Speak examines a series of relationships in the arts, while considering how artists supported each other and mentored subsequent generations. The exhibition opened on September 26 and runs through January 24. The exhibition was organized with direct input from artists and their family members, museum professionals, collectors, gallery owners, and scholars in the form of fourteen oral histories, which are transcribed in the exhibition's catalogue. The oral histories represent a process of discovery that shaped the checklist and thematic structure of the exhibition.

Among those featured artists are: Laura Wheeler Waring (1887-‐1948); Allen R. Freelon, Sr. (1895-‐1960); Dox Thrash (1892-‐1965); Selma Burke (1900-‐1995); Paul F.

Strange Currencies: Art & Action in Mexico City, 1990-2000
PHILADELPHIA  •  Moore College of Art & Design  •  19 September - 12 December 2015

The 1990s in Mexico were defined by a catastrophic economic crisis, social turmoil, and extensive impoverishment, with generalized political corruption and a chronic increase in violence and instability due to the effects of an accelerated process of globalization.

The exhibition brings together a selection of twenty-eight artists who lived and worked in Mexico City in the 1990s, whose varied practices and points of view reflect the multiplicity of subjects and approaches that emerged in the course of that crucial decade. The exhibition will feature nearly 80 works of art in a vast range of supports, including sculpture, photography, video, painting, installation, performance, and sound art. The works selected represent the gamut of issues and ideas explored at the time, such as gender-issues debates, social stratification, the flows of economic and symbolic capital, social inequality and social struggles, violence, urban development, youth culture and culture in general, and the realities of everyday life in a city in a permanent state of crisis.

United States of Latin America
DETROIT, MICHIGAN  •  Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit  •  18 September 2015 - 3 January 2016

United States of Latin America brings together more than 30 emerging artists from Latin America, many of who will be exhibiting in the United States for the first time. The exhibition is based on an ongoing conversation between two curators, Jens Hoffmann and Pablo León de la Barra, who for over a decade have exchanged research about artists, artworks, and the overall development of the art world from Mexico to Argentina and the many countries in between.

The exhibition brings this conversation into MOCAD in the form of a wide range of works in a variety of mediums: photographs of housing in Havana; a film about the effects of gang violence in Mexico; sculpture addressing the involvement of the CIA in Latin American dictatorships; boulders from a Guatemalen lake that have been turned into flip-flops; and paintings about the interplay of modernist houses, tropical vegetation, and utopian architecture. Mirroring the diversity of Latin America today, this exhibition presents an intentionally fragmented survey of the region and the art being made there, allowing for a glimpse of a place that although geographically near, in many ways seems far away and unfamiliar.
