El calendario de arte se mantiene básicamente igual este mes y solo añadimos la nueva muestra del artista vasco MENCHU GAL en el Instituto Cervantes. La exhibición Caribbean Crossroads de El Museo del Barrio, Queens Museum of Art y el Studio Museum de Harlem continúa, asi como Art of Another Kind: International Abstraction and the Guggenheim, con artistas latinos tales como José Guerrero y Antoni Tàpies. La escultura Cloud City del argentino Tomás Saraceno también sigue en el roof del Met Museum. Estas son cuatro exhibiciones que les recomendamos no se pierdan en Nueva York. La National Gallery de Washington muestra la obra de Miró en 'Joan Miró: The Ladder of Escape’ y el Museum of Fine Arts de Boston celebra sus dos nuevas alas de exhibición, a saber, Art of the Americas Contemporary Art.


Menchu Gal, Un espiritu libre > AGOSTO 3 - 25 > Instituto Cervantes >> GAL.

Autor/es: Menchu Gal
Menchu Gal (Irún 1919 - 2008) fue una de las pocas creadoras que brilló en un mundo dominado por hombres, durante los oscuros años de la posguerra, además de convertirse en la primera mujer que consiguió el Premio Nacional de Pintura.
Frente a su obra, el espectador es capaz de conectar con la calidez de los interiores, con el olor a sal de sus paisajes marinos, con esos trozos de exterior atrapados en los que se siente el latido de la vida. Los cuadros de la artista vasca invitan al observador a caminar con ella, a seguir sus huellas y a trazar un mapa de afinidades compartidas en el que cada uno acabará elaborando su propio itinerario. Además, si algo caracteriza la obra de Menchu Gal (más allá de la influencia del cubismo o el fauvismo), es la sensación de cercanía y de energía positiva aún latente. A través de los retratos de la vendimia, azoteas y atardeceres, nos adentra en unmundo de fábula donde todo es posible.

Tomás Saraceno on the Roof: Cloud City > Through November 4 > Met Museum > SARACENO.

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) will create a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Museum's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors may enter and walk through these habitat-like, modular structures grouped in a nonlinear configuration. Over the past decade, Saraceno has established a practice of constructing habitable networks based upon complex geometries and interconnectivity that merge art, architecture, and science. The interdisciplinary project "Cloud Cities/Air Port City" is rooted in the artist's investigation of expanding the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment.

The exhibition Caribbean: Crossroads of the World is the culmination of nearly a decade of collaborative research and scholarship organized by El Museo del Barrio in conjunction with the Queens Museum of Art and The Studio Museum in Harlem. Presenting work at the three museums and accompanied by an ambitious range of programs and events, Caribbean: Crossroads offers an unprecedented opportunity to explore the diverse and impactful cultural history of the Caribbean basin and its diaspora. More than 500 works of art spanning four centuries illuminate changing aesthetics and ideologies and provoke meaningful conversations about topics ranging from commerce and cultural hybridity to politics and pop culture. 

Art of Another Kind: International Abstraction and the Guggenheim, 1949–1960 > June 8–September 12 > GUGG.

Comprising approximately 100 works by nearly 70 artists, like José Guerrero (above), the exhibition explores international trends in abstraction in the decade before the Guggenheim's iconic Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building opened in October 1959, when vanguard artists working in the United States and Europe pioneered such influential art forms as Abstract Expressionism, Cobra, and Art Informel.

In his large-scale murals and the smaller, related portraits of the 1960s and 1970s, Avedon sought to depict the spirit of the times. The transgendered Candy Darling and the naked Taylor Mead testify to the provocative countercultural behavior of the Factory; the positioning of characters within the mural suggest a complicated group dynamic. The spirit of political rebellion is embodied by the Chicago Seven mural, as well as the individual photos of writer Jean Genet, Weatherman leader Bernardine Dohrn, and former turf gang-turned-human rights group, the Young Lords. The expanding definition of the American family is represented by the mural of the Ginsbergs, while earlier images of Allen in nude embrace with his partner Peter Orlovsky, were found to be too shocking for most publications in 1963. Finally, the war administrators—the Mission Council—are juxtaposed with victims of the war: Vietnamese survivors of napalm attacks. Powerful and dynamic, Avedon's images became icons of their embattled times that resonate for the present and future.

Celebrated as one of the greatest modern artists, Joan Miró (1893–1983) developed a visual language that reflected his vision and energy in a variety of styles across many media. Through some 120 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from a career spanning almost a century, the exhibition reveals a politically engaged side to Miró's work, including his passionate response to one of the most turbulent periods in European history as well as his sense of Spanish—specifically Catalan—identity.
