Fuera de Nueva York: Visité el Museum of Fine Arts de Boston y sus nuevas alas: una, Art of the Americas y la otra, Contemporary Art. Dos nuevos espacios que han transformado el museo y que apuntan al futuro. Sencillamente espectaculares. 
Aqui tienen el listado:


*American Identities: A New Look > Ongoing > Brooklyn Museum > Identities.

Edward Hicks (American, 1780–1849). The Peaceable Kingdom, circa 1833–34. Oil on canvas, 17 7/16 x 23 9/16 in. (44.3 x 59.8 cm). Brooklyn Museum, Dick S. Ramsay Fund, 40.340

This major installation of more than three hundred fifty objects from the Brooklyn Museum's premier collection of American art integrates a vast array of fine and decorative arts (silver, furniture, ceramics, and textiles) ranging in date from the colonial period to the present. For the first time, major objects from these exceptional collections are joined by selections from the Museum's important holdings of Native American and Spanish colonial art.

* Affordable Art Fair  > Del 18 al 22 de Abril > 7W > Affordable.
Last year poster. AAF 2011.
Más de 70 galerías exhibiendo lo último en Arte Contemporánea. Y con precios por debajo de los $10,000. Vean el artículo sobre la feria>> AAF.

* Frank Oscar Larson: 1950s New York Street Stories > Hasta Mayo 20 > Queens Museum of Art >> Larson.



Frank Oscar Larson (1896-1964) was born in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, of Swedish immigrant parents and lived in Flushing, Queens most of his life. As an adult, Larson spent his days at a branch of the Empire Trust Company (now Bank of New York Mellon), working his way up through the ranks from auditor to vice-president, and spare time on weekends taking photographs of street life throughout New York City. He was an accomplished photographer who eloquently documented 1950s Chinatown, the Bowery, Hell’s Kitchen, City Island, Times Square, Central Park, and much more. This exhibition is compiled from thousands of negatives recently discovered stored away in his daughter-in-law’s house in Maine in 2009. Soren Larson, his grandson and a television news camera man and producer, has been scanning and printing the 55 year old images found stored in over 100 envelopes filled with mostly medium format, 2-1/4 x 2-1/4″ negatives, and neatly noted by location and date in Larson’s own hand. 

* VOCES Y VISIONES: Gran Caribe > Hasta Diciembre 9 El Museo Del Barrio.

Francisco Oller y Cestero (Puerto Rican, 1833-1917) Platanos Amarillos (detail), ca. 1892-93 Oil on wood panel Gift of Joseph and Carmen Ana Unanue 2009.32
This exhibition features works that explore the vast diversity and complexity of the Caribbean basin, as an accompaniment to El Museo’s upcoming exhibition, Caribbean: Crossroads of the World, presented in collaboration with Studio Museum in Harlem and Queens Museum of Art.

* Queens International 2012: Three Points Make a Triangle > Hasta Mayo 20 > Queens Museum of Art > Three.


Showcasing artists living or working in the borough. The 2012 edition features 31 artists based in established and upcoming art hubs in Queens and comprise a multi-national and cross-generational group. 
Queens International 2012 presents artists ranging in age from their 20s through their 60s, who reflect Queens’ diversity, hailing from Taiwan, Israel, Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, Lithuania, Japan, Tibet, Uruguay and the US, some new to Queens, and others lifelong residents. 


* Rafael Barrios on Park Avenue. Nine monumental sculptures by this Venezuelan artist >> March 1 - June 30.

From 51st Street to 67th Street, Park Avenue Malls, Manhattan. Artist Alexander Arrechea will be also on display during springtime.



* Kandinsky at the Bauhaus, 1922-1933 > Hasta Abril 25 > Guggenheim Museum > Kandinsky.
In 1922 Vasily Kandinsky accepted a teaching position at the Bauhaus, the state-sponsored Weimar school of art and applied design founded in 1919 by architect Walter Gropius.

Vasily Kandinsky, Decisive Rose (Entscheidendes Rosa), March 1932 (detail). Oil on canvas, 81 x 100 cm. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Founding Collection 49.1178

The school’s curriculum was based on the principle that the crafts were equal to the traditional arts and was organized according to a medieval-style guild system of training under the tutelage of masters. Kandinsky conducted the Wall Painting Workshop and Preliminary Course and taught at all three of the school’s sequential locations in Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin until 1933, when the Bauhaus was closed due to pressure from the National Socialist (Nazi) government.

* John Chamberlain: Choices  > Hasta Mayo 13 > Guggenheim Museum > John.

With collage—the juxtaposition of heterogeneous elements—and abstraction—the elimination of figurative imagery—as guiding principles, Chamberlain articulated the maxim that permeates his entire oeuvre: “it’s all in the fit.” Throughout his career, modulations in scale and medium provide a vital rhythm to his development. The sculptures range from the size of a fist to the girth of a generous hug to the height of a young, and eventually not so young, tree. Swelling and shrinking, in coats of multicolor, monochrome, or black-and-white paint, the survey of Chamberlain’s career displays the integrity of the artist’s gesture in diverse manifestations. Despite his commitment to abstraction, identifying anthropomorphic and zoomorphic traits in the lyrical, twisting forms is irresistible. Their playful titles are planted like so many red herrings: Belvo-Violet (1962), Miss Lucy Pink (1962), Rooster Starfoot (1976), Lord Suckfist (1989), and SPHINXGRIN TWO (1986/2010).
 

* Francesca Woodman > Una retrospectiva > Hasta Junio 13 > Guggenheim Museum > Woodman.

Francesca Woodman is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s brief but extraordinary career to be seen in North America. More than thirty years after her death, the moment is ripe for a historical reconsideration of her work and its reception. Woodman’s oeuvre represents a remarkably rich and singular exploration of the human body in space and of the genre of self-portraiture in particular. Her interest in female subjectivity, seriality, Conceptualist practice, and photography’s relationship to both literature and performance are also hallmarks of the heady moment in American photography during which she came of age. 

* Whitney Biennial 2012 March 1–May 27 > Sculpture, painting, installations, and photography—as well as dance, theater, music, and film > Whitney Museum.


With a roster of artists at all points in their careers the Biennial provides a look at the current state of contemporary art in America. This is the seventy-sixth in the ongoing series of Biennials and
Annuals presented by the Whitney since 1932, two years after the Museum was founded.
 
* Cindy Sherman > Hasta Junio 1 > MoMa.

The exhibition will explore dominant themes throughout Sherman’s career, including artifice and fiction; cinema and performance; horror and the grotesque; myth, carnival, and fairy tale; and gender and class identity. 
Also included are Sherman’s recent photographic murals (2010), which will have their American premiere at MoMA. 

* TESTIMONIOS: 100 Years of Popular Expression > Hasta Mayo 6 > El Museo del Barrio.

 

Drawing on rarely-seen works from El Museo del Barrio's Permanent Collection and select loans from the New York area, Testimonios examines potent works by non-traditionally trained makers. This exhibition celebrates and witnesses mankind’s myriad artistic manifestations by highlighting works that have been born under difficult or collaborative circumstances, or for spiritual or communal celebrations.

*Keith Haring: 1978–1982 > Hasta Julio 8 > Brooklyn Museum > KH.

This is the first large-scale exhibition to explore the early career of one of the best-known American artists of the twentieth century. Tracing the development of Haring’s extraordinary visual vocabulary, the exhibition includes 155 works on paper, numerous experimental videos, and over 150 archival objects, including rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition flyers, posters, subway drawings, and documentary photographs.


* Abstract Universe > Carol Brown Goldberg > Hasta Mayo 8 > The Gabarron Foundation - Carriage House Center for the Arts> ABSTRACT.

"Abstract Universe" is an exhibition of large-scale pulverized glass and acrylic paintings by Carol Brown Goldberg. The exhibition is curated by Donald Kuspit, distinguished scholar and art critic, who describes this selection of Goldberg's work as "Baroque Color Field painting" that has been inspired by the artist's reflection on the Creation. The artist states that "In my art, I create a system, a layering, that allows me to get into a flow of timelessness, and the repetition of shapes and forms compound the meditative process. I am in awe at the alchemy of paint, and how fluid can be harnessed to create images that transport us into a realm of mystery." 


* Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art > Hasta Mayo 14 >> MOMA.

In December 1931, two years after its founding, The Museum of Modern Art inaugurated a major exhibition of work by the Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Only the second retrospective presented at the young Museum, the show was wildly popular, breaking attendance records in its five-week run. Rivera’s international celebrity was based on his fame as a muralist, but murals—by definition made and fixed on site—were impossible to transport. To solve this problem, MoMA brought the artist to New York from Mexico six weeks before the opening and provided him with makeshift studio space in an empty gallery. Working around the clock with three assistants, Rivera produced five “portable murals”—freestanding frescoes with bold images commemorating events in Mexican history. After the opening, to great publicity, Rivera added three more murals, now taking on New York subjects through monumental images of the urban working class and the social stratification of the city during the Great Depression. All eight were on display for the rest of the show’s run.


* "Think Green","Pensar en verde" de Mónica Sarmiento Castillo > Art Inspired by Nature > Great Neck Arts Center > Hasta Mayo 31 > GREEN.

Mónica Sarmiento Castillo's distinctive chromatic and constructivist structuring works are shown in prestigious exhibitions around the world. The focal point of her work is the exploration of nature in painting, sculpture, collage, drawing, and glass as viewed through the pre-Columbian Civilizations. Forests weave together the essence of creation and form the basis of her inspiration, reflecting an arboreal theme.

* Fiction/Nonfiction > Works by Rafael Ferrer > Group show > March 16 - April 21 > Adam Baumgold Gallery > FERRER.


 
OUTSIDE OF NYC:

* Art of the Americas > New wing > Ongoing > Museum of Fine Arts > Boston > MFA.

The new wing takes a global perspective on Art of the Americas, showcasing more than 5,000 works of art produced in North, Central, and South America over the course of three millennia. Art in all media will be arranged chronologically on four floors. The wing's 53 brand-new galleries include nine beautiful period rooms and four Behind the Scenes galleries to enhance the way visitors experience and interact with the collection. 


* Mujeres > Hasta Abril 21 > Villa Victoria Centers for the Arts  >  South End > Boston >> Villa.

A group exhibit of six women artists of diverse origins coming together for an exceptional show. Each artist demonstrates great mastery of her media and work, powerfully presenting women’s issues. Coinciding with Women’s History Month in March, we celebrate and explore modern themes with contemporary relevance. The artists present works in various media: video, painting, textiles, printmaking, and beyond, demonstrating how a diversity of media can resonate and amplify meanings. The subject of women holds together the works, yet each is distinguished by its individual strengths, exploring, questioning, and affirming that the personal is political.

* The Art of the Ancient Americas > Hasta Mayo 20 > Walters Museum of Baltimore > AMERICAS.



An exhibition of 135 artworks from cultures that rose and fell in Mexico, Central America and Andean South America from 1200 BCE to 1530 CE. Drawn from the collection of John Bourne recently gifted to the Walters, this exhibition expresses each culture’s distinctive aesthetics, worldview and spiritual ideologies.
Exploring Art of the Ancient Americas touches on the performative nature of politics and religion—performance being a key mechanism for strengthening bonds of community and religious belief. The exhibition features the imaginative musical instruments used during these events and emotive portrayals of performers—from kings to commoners.

* The New Wing for Contemporary Art at the MFA, Boston > Ongoing > Contemporary.

The Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art has seven new galleries to introduce innovative approaches to contemporary art and design within the context of the MFA's collections. The wing is also a lively social space—a gateway to experience contemporary culture, including art, music, performances, film, readings, lectures, courses, and artist demonstrations.
