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.

Annemarie Heinrich: Glamour and Modernity in Buenos Aires
NEW YORK  •  Nailya Alexander Gallery  •  7 January - 3 March 2016
 
Annemarie Heinrich was born in 1912 in Darmstadt, Germany. Her father, a concert violinist and socialist who feared another war in Europe, moved the family to Argentina in 1926. Before settling on photography, Annemarie studied dance, music, and scenography, which had a great effect on the lighting and composition of her later work and served as an entrée into the worlds of art and entertainment.

Heinrich began her career as an apprentice to European émigré photographers. In 1930, at the age of eighteen, she set up her first studio in Buenos Aires. Surrounded by artists of every discipline – celebrities, film and radio stars, opera singers, ballerinas, tango dancers, and writers – Heinrich was central to the development and popularization of a new kind of photograph: the celebrity portrait. As Juan Travnik writes in Una cuerpo, una luz, un reflejo (Ediciones Larivière, 2015), “Annemarie Heinrich so became the creator of a genre which in Argentina, as well as in other countries, developed side by side with the growth of the film industry and the popularization of the radio.” For over forty years, she provided the cover photos for Radiolandia, Argentina’s most famous show business magazine, and worked regularly for almost every other major entertainment publication in the country. Her subjects included the 20-year-old actress Eva Duarte, who went on to become First Lady of Argentina Eva Perón; American singer and civil rights activist Marian Anderson; writers Pablo Neruda and Jorge Luis Borges; ballet dancers Anthony Tudor and Serge Lifar; and prominent South American celebrities Tita Merello and Carmen Miranda.

Chris Burden: Buddha's Fingers
NEW YORK  •  Gagosian Gallery  •  19 January - 20 February 2016
 
It's about trying to frame something. And draw attention to it and say, “Here’s the beauty in this. I'm going to put a frame around it, and I think this is beautiful.” That’s what artists do. It’s really a pointing activity.
—Chris Burden

Beginning with a series of startling actions in the early 1970s, Chris Burden challenged his own mental and physical limitations, as well as the boundaries of art and performance. Shut inside a locker for five days (Five Day Locker, 1971); shot in the arm (Shoot, 1971); and nailed through the palms of his hands to the roof of a car (Trans-fixed, 1974), he sought to reflect the violence that defined American politics, society, and media at the time. Burden soon channeled the daring spirit of these early performances into imposing technical feats that similarly explored challenges both individual and social. He used toys (figurines, train sets, Erector parts) as the building blocks for expansive scale models of buildings, dystopic cities, and battlefields, while deploying actual vehicles (ships, trucks, and cars) in surreal and improbable ways.

Buddha's Fingers (2014–15) is a dense cluster of thirty-two antique cast-iron vernacular street lamps, electrified with cool, bright LED bulbs and standing almost twelve feet tall. The work is related to Urban Light (2008), Burden's celebrated permanent installation of 202 lamp posts, which stands at the entrance to LACMA in Los Angeles. In 2000, Burden began collecting the street lamps that used to line residential streets in Los Angeles during the 1920s and 1930s, and repurposed them as sculptural installations. In Buddha’s Fingers, the hexagonal lamp bases are set in a tight honeycomb formation. The whimsical title refers to the fingered citrus fruit “buddha's hand,” a recurrent still-life motif and subject in classical Asian art, and a religious symbol of happiness, longevity, and good fortune.

Chris Burden was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1946, and died in Topanga Canyon, California in 2015.

The Precarious
HOUSTON, TEXAS  •  The Menil Collection  •  16 December 2015 - 1 May 2016
 

The medium of collage entered modern art in the first years of the 20th century through the hands of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, bringing with it possibilities for formal experimentation and new meanings that today’s artists continue to deploy and investigate. To explore the sensibilities and worldviews that underlie collage, and to document the special place this medium held for U.S. artists in the wake of World War II, The Menil Collection presents The Precarious. Comprised of 30 works on paper and sculpture by thirteen artists, the exhibition casts new light on a strain of practice that brings to the foreground reconstituted materials which are worn, distressed, or discarded.

While every artwork is, in a sense, precarious—from a fragile Kazimir Malevich painting to the ancient stone monuments that today suffer purposeful annihilation in parts of the Middle East—collage acknowledges precariousness as a foundational principle.

With two exceptions that serve as geographical and chronological bookends, the artworks included in the exhibition—those by John Chamberlain, Gene Charlton, Sari Dienes, Ellsworth Kelly, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Anne Ryan, Kurt Schwitters, Richard Tuttle, and Cy Twombly—come out of post–World War II America. By chronologically beginning with the modestly scaled and tenuously constructed collages by German-born artist Kurt Schwitters (1887–1948) and ending with the cardboard constructions of Vietnamese-born artist Danh Vo (b. 1975), the exhibition concentrates on a strain of artistic practice that foregrounds the marginalized as always both an artistic concern and social phenomenon.

A Voyage to South America: Andean Art in the Spanish Empire
CHICAGO  •  The Art Institute of Chicago  •  12 September 2015 - 21 February 2016
 
 

Fourteen paintings and related works on paper—including pieces from the collection of Chicagoans Marilynn and Carl Thoma never before displayed in a museum, as well as important loans from the Newberry Library and Denver Art Museum—introduce visitors to explorers, artists, and patrons who lived in the Spanish-governed Andes during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.

The metaphorical guide of this journey is Antonio de Ulloa (1716–95), a Spanish naval officer and cartographer who traveled to South America with a French scientific mission in the 1730s and 1740s. His portrait introduces the group of works assembled—paintings of identified sitters, signal works by important South American artists, and devotional paintings that include historical figures.

Hiroki Tsukuda: Enter the O
NEW YORK  •  Petzel Gallery  •  14 January - 20 February 2016
 
 

Petzel Gallery announces Enter the O, a solo exhibition of new works on paper, sculpture, and installation by Japanese artist Hiroki Tsukuda (born 1978 in Kagawa, Japan).

Enter the O is derived from Tsukuda’s primary experience with the physical world. During his youth on Japan’s Shikoku Island, Tsukuda often envisioned the landscapes and possible alternate dimensions that lay beyond the Sanuki Mountains to the South and the Seto Inland Sea to the North. Later in Tokyo, these conjured terrains—which Tsukuda deems “outer worlds”—became imbued with the bold, dynamic architecture of Japan’s capital city. The artist’s ink drawings explore the turbulent, futuristic cityscapes of his imaginings. Created with meticulous detail these intricate, symmetrically fantastic works illustrate collapsed spaces, in which mechanized worlds merge with sci-fi mythos.

Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon: Forgetting the Hand
NEW YORK  •  David Zwirner Gallery  •  14 January - 20 February 2016
 
 
David Zwirner presents an exhibition of collaborative works by Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon. Gallery artists since 1998 and 1995 respectively, this is the first time the pair has worked together. The drawings were originally created for a zine published by David Zwirner Books to coincide with Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 (September 2015). The collaboration began in Summer 2015 with the artists swapping the first of a series of drawings to be completed by the other. In a variation of the “exquisite corpse” method in which a partner is only given portions of an otherwise concealed drawing to work on, Dzama and Pettibon developed each other’s compositions through illustrations, collage, and writing.

Senses of Time: Video and Film-Based Works of Africa
LOS ANGELES  •  Los Angeles County Museum  •  20 December 2015 - 2 January 2017
 
 

Our hearts beat to the rhythms of biological time and continents drift in geological time, while we set our watches to the precision of Naval time. Time may be easy to measure, but it is challenging to understand. Five leading contemporary artists of Africa explore temporal strategies to convey how time is experienced—and produced—by the body. Bodies climb, dance, and dissolve in six works of video and film, or “time-based” art. Characters and the actions they depict repeat, resist, and reverse any expectation that time must move relentlessly forward.

Senses of Time invites viewers to consider tensions between personal and political time, ritual and technological time, bodily and mechanical time. Through pacing, sequencing, looping, layering, and mirroring, diverse perceptions of time are both embodied and expressed.

The Younger Generation: Contemporary Japanese Photography
LOS ANGELES  •  J. Paul Getty Museum  •  6 October 2015 - 21 February 2016
 
 
Beginning in the 1990s, a number of young female photographers in Japan garnered attention by making provocative self-portraits and intimate images of domestic scenes. Challenging the status quo of the male-dominated photography community, their work prompted the controversial and reductive term onnanoko shashin, or “girl photographs”.

This exhibition showcases the versatile and complex work of five midcareer Japanese-born artists who emerged in the wake of “girl photography”: Kawauchi Rinko, Onodera Yuki, Otsuka Chino, Sawada Tomoko, and Shiga Lieko. Mavericks in their field, these women continue in the tradition of such pioneers as Ishiuchi Miyako, whose work appears in the companion exhibition Ishiuchi Miyako: Postwar Shadows.

Yutaka Sone: Day and Night
NEW YORK  •  David Zwirner  •  14 January - 20 February 2016
 
 

David Zwirner presents an exhibition of recent and new works by Yutaka Sone (born, 1965 Shizuoka, Japan). Across a wide range of media—predominantly sculpture but also painting, drawing, photography, video, and performance—Sone’s work revolves around a tension between realism and perfection. A conceptual framework, paired with a meticulous attention to detail, has characterized his practice since the early 1990s, informing equally his self-contained jungle environments, life-size roller coasters, magnified snowflakes, and staged events. His sculptural works in particular attest to a profound interest in landscapes, whether natural or architectural, and their extraordinary ability to capture light relates them to a genre primarily associated with painting and photography.

The exhibition features a new group of canvases depicting scenes at night. The motifs were taken from the artist’s large-scale, white marble sculptures and respectively show an amusement park roller coaster, Los Angeles highway intersection, and Hong Kong and Manhattan cityscapes. With their black backdrops illuminated by brightly painted artificial lights, the paintings contrast with the purity of their sculptural counterparts, yet similarly present their subjects as archetypal landscapes somehow unaffected by the life that circulates within them.

LOS ANGELES  •  Landmark Theatres  •  18 January - 18 February 2016
 
 
In writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, set some years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, all four seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover. When they arrive, they are greeted by four unfamiliar faces: Bob (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s in the owner’s absence; Oswaldo (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock; cow-puncher Joe (Michael Madsen); and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…. Filmed and presented in Ultra Panavision 70mm. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Cinematography (Robert Richardson) and Original Score (Ennio Morricone).
