Picasso Black and White, the first major exhibition to focus on the artist’s lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette throughout his career, will be presented at the Guggenheim Museum from October 5, 2012, to January 23, 2013. The exhibition features 118 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from 1904 to 1971, and will offer new and striking insights into Picasso’s vision and working methods. This chronological presentation includes significant loans—many of which have not been exhibited or published before—drawn from museum, private, and public collections across Europe and the United States, including numerous works from the Picasso family. Following its New York presentation, a major part of the exhibition will travel to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where it will be on view from February 24 to May 27, 2013.

Americas Society co-presents an exhibition with Sala Mendoza and Fundación Gego, Caracas to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of acclaimed artist Gertrud Goldschmidt. Widely known as Gego, the Venezuelan artist is considered one of the most important Latin American modernists of the twentieth century.
This exhibition features a significant group of works on paper, preparatory drawings, photographs, manuscripts, sketches, and three-dimensional works that attest to the artist’s journey from colorful landscapes and street scenes through to abstraction. As one of the very few venues where the in situ Reticulárea was recreated, Americas Society is proud to examine Gego’s innovative and groundbreaking command of space.

El Atlas de Borges > Del 4 al 20 de Octubre > Instituto Cervantes >> BORGES.

Atlas, de Borges es una exposición que nos invita al mundo personal del escritor a través de una selección de fotografías que el autor de El Aleph y su esposa Maria Kodama hicieron durante sus viajes. Las percepciones que experimentaron están reflejadas en esas instantáneas, las cuáles no tienen un excelente valor a nivel técnico, pero conservan el poder de lo genuino, el asombro y la frescura de sus experiencias alrededor del mundo. Una aproximación completamente distinta a Jorge Luis Borges, que nos permite descubrir al hombre que era en su tiempo de ocio, más allá de su faceta de escritor, un hombre reflexivo, solemne, y buen compañero de viaje. Con la presencia de María Kodama y el IngenieroHernán Lombardi, Ministro de Cultura de Buenos Aires.

* Metropolis > Alexis Duque > Hasta Octubre 20 > Galería Praxis Art > DUQUE.

Alexis Duque, City of Gold, acrylic on canvas, 61 x 91.5 cm, 0,

In his new series of paintings, Alexis Duque presents us with an idealized city. Baroque in spirit, the works abound with a plethora of distinctive buildings that are a blend of fantasy and reality. Among these, we see an inventory of iconic New York City buildings such as the Empire State, Chrysler, Flatiron, Woolworth, Condé Nast, Philip Johnson’s AT&T building (now SONY), Frank Gehry’s IAC building, and the Guggenheim. Each of these is rendered as a blend of realistic details with the artist’s own inventions. Throughout the works, the artist is principally concerned with two themes, the skyscraper viewed among the clouds and scenes of the well-known skyline at night.

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

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973)  createD 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.

* Roberto Diago: Entre Lineas | Between the Lines > Septiembre 6 - Octubre 13 > Magnan Metz Gallery > DIAGO.

Roberto Diago (b. 1971 Cuba) graduated from San Alejandro National Academy of Visual Arts in 1990. His works combine painting, collage and mixed media techniques, exploring themes of his identity as a contemporary Cuban, and as a man of African ancestry. He has received numerous national and international prizes and awards. In recent years, he has been regularly featured in solo and group shows throughout Cuba and Latin America as well as the United States, Canada and Europe.

Maria Martinez-Cañas : Photo Paintings >> September 6 - October 20 >> Julie Saul Gallery > MARIA.

Untitled 010 [RR], 2012

Martinez-Cañas' fifth solo show at the gallery is comprised of a series of "Photo Paintings", large scale unique works completed during 2011/12. Her concept is derived from Francis Bacon's use of photographs to inform his paintings, and each work is an homage to a different modernist artist whom she admires, including Muybridge, and Louise Bourgeois. Cañas uses a gesture from Bacon's paintings as the starting point for the work and a variety of media including photo transfer, painting and collage on wood veneer giving equal weight to the paint and photographic image. 

Recent Work by Ines Medina and Katherine Taylor >> September 6 - October 13 > Skoto Gallery > INES.

Ines Medina: Positioning of the 1, 2011, oil on canvas, 32x39 inches.
Despite their varied experiences and personal cultural backgrounds Ines Medina (Basque Country, Spain) and Katherine Taylor (USA) have over the years evolved into artists whose respective works are governed by sensibilities that explore broader, fluid aesthetic possibilities that respond to and signifies current expanded parameters of art-making and socio-cultural identities. As artists working in a milieu fraught with the possibilities of shifting, multiple and hybrid identities, they are acutely aware of the new challenges to the existing models for explaining the forms of belonging and patterns of exchange that the dynamics of globalization have wrought.

Manolo Valdés : Monumental Sculptures > Septiembre 22 - Mayo 23, 2013 >> The New York Botanical Garden > VALDES

Drawing inspiration from the natural landscape of the Botanical Garden, seven towering sculptures by acclaimed Spanish artist Manolo Valdés showcase the relationship between art and nature. The sculptures have been sited to take maximum advantage of the Garden's dramatic views with special attention given to the visual impact of the changing seasons. The artist has designed the installation to include surprising changes in the visual character of the sculptures throughout the seasons.

Foregrounding the Palisades : Isidro Blasco >>  September 1 - December 2 >> Glyndor Gallery > Wave Hill Park > PALISADES.

Spanish-born artist Isidro Blasco combines architecture, photography, and sculptural installation to explore themes of perception and urbanism. His large-scale sculptures buttress three-dimensional photographic collages in which shots taken from multiple angles pivot around a single vantage point. The result is a fragmented view, an elliptical succession of various perspectives that produces a dynamic experience of space that is at once alluring and disorienting. For Flow System, Blasco has taken hundreds of photographs of the Palisades, the Palisades Interstate Park, and the George Washington Bridge from points in New Jersey, Washington Heights, Inwood, and the Bronx. The images are assembled to create an articulated, panoramic, sculptural collage that fills the gallery space. The work is a departure for the artist, whose subject is often architecture and streetscapes. Here, he has focused on the rocks, trees, and structures of the Palisades, presenting a multi-faceted rendering of this breathtaking natural landscape.

DOUGLAS GORDON : The End of Civilisation > Septiembre 8 - Octubre 13 >> Gagosian Gallery > THE END

DOUGLAS GORDON : The End of Civilisation (still), 2012 
In The End of Civilisation, a grand piano burns at a remote site deep in the Cumbrian landscape. This lushly green and desolate locale overlooking the boundary between England and Scotland was once the border of the Roman Empire. The grand piano, emblematic of high culture as both a finely crafted instrument and a beautiful sculptural object, is destroyed at the primeval edge of civilization. With this symbolic conflagration, Gordon re-enacts an ancient local tradition of igniting beacons as an admonition or communication. Inspired in part by the journey of the 2012 Olympic torch across the British Isles, The End of Civilisation is both a celebration and a warning—of fire as a symbol of optimism and hope, but also of risk, danger, and destruction.

Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life > September 14–January 6 >> International Center of Photography >> ICP

Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life is a photographic exhibition examining the legacy of the apartheid system and how it penetrated even the most mundane aspects of social existence in South Africa, from housing, public amenities, and transportation to education, tourism, religion, and businesses. Complex, vivid, evocative, and dramatic, it includes nearly 500 photographs, films, books, magazines, newspapers, and assorted archival documents and covers more than 60 years of powerful photographic and visual production that forms part of the historical record of South Africa. Several photographic strategies, from documentary to reportage, social documentary to the photo essay, were each adopted to examine the effects and after-effects of apartheid's political, social, economic, and cultural legacy. Curated by Okwui Enwezor with Rory Bester, the exhibition proposes a complex understanding of photography and the aesthetic power of the documentary form and honors the exceptional achievement of South African photographers.


Gabriel Orozco’s Asterisms > November 9, 2012–January 13, 2013 > Guggenheim Museum > Orozco

Gabriel Orozco’s Asterisms, the final project of the commissioning program at Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, is a two-part sculptural and photographic installation comprising thousands of items of detritus the artist has gathered at two sites—a playing field near his home in New York and a protected coastal biosphere in Baja California Sur, Mexico, that is also the repository for flows of industrial and commercial waste from across the Pacific Ocean.
