La Bienal 2013, El Museo’s 7th biennial exhibition, features work by 37 emerging Latino and Latin American artists, from newly-minted to mid-career, who live and work in New York City metropolitan area. This installation of La Bienal is curated by El Museo Curator Rocío Aranda-Alvarado and Raúl Zamudio, an independent New York-based curator.
This year, La Bienal features Brazil as the special guest country. Our biennial guest country presents an opportunity for El Museo to remain in conversation with similar urban artistic landscapes throughout Latin American and the Caribbean, and expose our audiences to emerging artists in other locales.
ADEMAS* Presencia > Hasta Diciembre 31, 2013.
Presencia, the most recent exhibition of work from El Museo’s permanent collection, focuses on ideas of presence and its antithesis, absence. This theme is explored through photography, painting, prints, drawings, masks, and other objects. The exhibition investigates the visibility and invisibility of the human form through the presentation of the body in literal and conceptual ways. The featured artists play with their figures, showing bodies revealed and obscured, evidently displayed or camouflaged.

Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes Hasta Septiembre 23 > MoMA > Atlas

MoMA presents its first major exhibition on the work of Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, 1887–1965), encompassing his work as an architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer, and photographer. Conceived by guest curator Jean-Louis Cohen, the exhibition reveals the ways in which Le Corbusier observed and imagined landscapes throughout his career, using all the artistic techniques at his disposal, from his early watercolors of Italy, Greece, and Turkey, to his sketches of India, and from the photographs of his formative journeys to the models of his large-scale projects. His paintings and drawings also incorporate many views of sites and cities. All of these dimensions are present in the largest exhibition ever produced in New York of his prodigious oeuvre.

American Modern: Hopper to O'Keeffe > Agosto 17 a Enero 26, 2014 > MoMA > American

Drawn from MoMA’s collection, American Modern takes a fresh look at the Museum’s holdings of American art made between 1915 and 1950, and considers the cultural preoccupations of a rapidly changing American society in the first half of the 20th century. Including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures, American Modern brings together some of the Museum’s most celebrated masterworks, contextualizing them across mediums and amid lesser-seen but revelatory works by artists who expressed compelling emotional and visual tendencies of the time.* EXPO 1: NEW YORK > Hasta Septiembre 2 > MoMA y MoMA PS.1 > Expo1.

EXPO 1: New York, an exploration of ecological challenges in the context of the economic and socio-political instability of the early 21st century opens at MoMA PS1, The Museum of Modern Art, and Rockaway Beach. Acting in the guise of a festival-as-institution, EXPO 1: New York imagines a contemporary art museum dedicated to ecological concerns, presenting a simultaneity of modules, interventions, solo projects, and group exhibitions including a school, a colony, a cinema, a geodesic dome, Rain Room, and more:

      + Rain Room > Hasta Julio 28 > MoMA

Random International’s immersive environment Rain Room (2012), a major component of the MoMA PS1 exhibition EXPO 1: New York, is presented in the lot directly adjacent to The Museum of Modern Art. A field of falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected, Rain Room offers visitors the experience of controlling the rain. Known for their distinctive approach to contemporary digital practice, Random International’s experimental projects come alive through audience interaction—and Rain Room is their largest and most ambitious to date. The work invites visitors to explore the roles that science, technology, and human ingenuity can play in stabilizing our environment. Using digital technology, Rain Room creates a carefully choreographed downpour, simultaneously encouraging people to become performers on an unexpected stage and creating an intimate atmosphere of contemplation.

      + Adrián Villar Rojas: La inocencia de los animales > Hasta Septiembre 2 > MoMA PS.1
A member of the youngest generation of internationally recognized artists, Argentinian Adrián Villar Rojas is known for his sculptural installations, drawings, and environments that suggest a world inspired by both archeology and science fiction. For EXPO 1: New York, Villar Rojas is creating La inocencia de los animales (2013), a site-specific, immersive installation that resembles both an amphitheater of antiquity and a post-apocalyptic cavern. Consisting of cracked, crumbling clay and concrete, the work points forwards and backwards—seemingly to the very beginnings of civilization and its aftermath. Designed as an environment to house the EXPO School, Villar Rojas’s installation serves a place to impart and absorb knowledge, insinuating an educational foundation amid the physical debris.

      + Colony > Hasta Septiembre 2 > MoMA PS.1
The devastating effects of natural disasters and economic volatility have spurred architects to reconsider how to build in a tumultuous world. For EXPO 1: New York, Pedro Gadanho asked the Argentinian architecture firm a77 to create a colony in MoMA PS1’s outdoor courtyard in which artists, thinkers, architects, and other cultural agents are invited to live together. The construction of the Colony will occur during the duration of EXPO 1: New York. a77, led by Gustavo Diéguez and Lucas Gilardi, is known for working with recycled and salvaged materials to create temporary and permanent housing. Powerful storms have left behind large swaths of wreckage destined for landfills; the foreclosure crisis has created a glut of abandoned homes.The architects suggest ways to reimagine such bleak conditions to find new forms of sustainable dwellings as alternatives to the traditional house. By building, living, designing, and thinking together, the inhabitants of the colony propose a model for future living and communal utopia.

* Life, Death, and Transformation in the Americas >
Long Term Installation > Brooklyn Museum > Americas.

Life, Death, and Transformation in the Americas presents over one hundred masterpieces from the Museum’s permanent Arts of the Americas collection, exemplifying the concept of transformation as part of the spiritual beliefs and practice of the region's indigenous peoples, past and present. Themes of life, death, fertility, and regeneration are explored through pre-Columbian and historical artworks, including many pieces that are rarely on display. Highlights include the Huastec Life-Death Figure, the Kwakwaka’wakw Thunderbird Transformation Mask, and two eight-foot-tall, nineteenth-century Heiltsuk House Postsmade to support the huge beams of a great Northwest Coast plank house. Other featured objects include Hopi and Zuni kachinas, masks from throughout the Americas, Mexica (Aztec) and Maya sculptures, and ancient Andean textiles including the two-thousand-year-old Paracas Textile, which illustrates the way in which early cultures of Peru’s South Coast envisioned their relationship with nature and the supernatural realm.

The Bruce High Quality Foundation: Ode to Joy, 2001–2013 > Junio 28 a Septiembre 22 > Brooklyn Museum > Ode.

The Bruce High Quality Foundation: Ode to Joy, 2001–2013 is a retrospective of over fifty works by The Bruce High Quality Foundation, a Brooklyn-based art collective whose production includes subversive and often humorous installation art, live performance, film, and social sculpture. Taking its name from the fictional artist Bruce High Quality, who supposedly perished on September 11, 2001, the Foundation views 9/11 as a seminal moment in contemporary history; the ensuing wars and economic and cultural shifts are recurring concerns. Through its writings, original works of art, and free, unaccredited art school (The Bruce High Quality Foundation University), it attempts to democratize relationships between artist and public.

ADEMASJohn Singer Sargent Watercolors > Hasta Julio 28 + Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui > Hasta Agosto 4.

* Cohesión en lo diverso > Elisabeth Ollé  > Junio 19 a Julio 5 > Instituto Cervantes > Ollé.


Elisabeth Ollé nos presenta una muestra de las diferentes etapas de su trabajo, desde el expresionismo ingenuo mediterranéo al racionalismo. Con la influencia de maestros del siglo XX y la fusión de estilo cinético y arte clásico continua con vuelta al expresionismo salvaje: obras de intención expresiva inspiradas en el origen de la vida.

The Graphic Canon, World literature through art and comics > Hasta Julio 17 > El Taller Latino Americano > Canon.


The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present "The Graphic Canon, World literature through art and comics" an exhibition featuring original paintings, drawings, prints and mixed media works from the celebrated 3-volume trilogy, where contemporary artists and illustrators re-imagine great works of literature from around the world. 
Participating artists include: Andrea Arroyo, Benjamin Birdie, Shawn Cheng, Seymour Chwast, Chandra Free, Sandy Jimenez, Peter Kuper, Ellen Lindner, Rebecca Migdal, Robert Sikoryak, Bishakh Som & Lauren Weinstein. The exhibition is curated by Andrea Arroyo, in collaboration with Seven Stories Press. 

Precious Face > Carolina Gómez > Hasta Agosto 16 > Frederico Sève Gallery > Precious.


Precious Face, a selection of oil paintings and mix media pieces by Carolina Gomez from June 20th to August 16h. This exhibition features an array of figurative paintings and collages from her latest series “Mirror Stone”: an exploration concerned with the intersection of power, beauty, andfashion through the juxtaposition of pop culture icons and precious gems.
Carolina Gomez’s works has become known for the powerful questions they pose about personal female identity and society’s views towards women. The paintings focus on the female pop culture icon, impeccably recreated on canvas with oil and with what one might consider the most important part of the icon, the face, hidden. However, the icon's face is not simply hidden with just anything but with precious gems of all sorts; diamonds, quarts, topazes, rubies, etc. The gems themselves take on a life of their own because of their commanding vividness and technical precision.

* Summer Group Show > With Teresita Fernández > Junio 27 a
Agosto 16 > Lehmann Maupin Gallery > Summer.

Edition of 1 In collaboration with Singapore Tyler Print Institute LM15575
At 201 Chrystie Street, another three-artist exhibition exploring the role of perception and the innovative use of materials and technology to create meaningful experiences showcases new minimalist paintings by Mary Corse; a variety of wall works by Teresita Fernández; and two floor sculptures and a Pin River work by Maya Lin. Mary Corse’s monochromatic, white paintings reveal the artist’s ongoing exploration with radiant and reflective surfaces and reveal the subjective nature of perception in progress. Maya Lin’s use of technological methods to study topographical and geographic phenomena presents viewers with the opportunity to experience the natural world through a twenty-first century lens, and demonstrates the artist’s ability to translate the enormity of our world, in this case the Arctic, to a scale that is more relatable. Teresita Fernández's work engages the surrounding architecture and the optical effects of light and color to create subtle, meticulous works of art that reference the landscape and natural phenomena.

Castilla la Mancha y Nueva York en armonía > Julio 9 a Agosto 17 > Instituto Cervantes > Castilla.

'Castilla-La Mancha y Nueva York en armonía' es un trabajo «muy cuidado y ambicioso» de José Ramón Ayllón Talavera y Víctor Prieto Iranzo, que han recorrido la Gran Manzana y los rincones de nuestra geografía para demostrar que estos dos lugares no son tan diferentes. Sus instantáneas muestran «sorprendentes» analogías y similitudes entre paisajes y monumentos arquitectónicos de estos dos puntos tan lejanos. La propuesta de los artistas es demostrar que la región goza de lugares dignos de ser conocidos como centros culturales y turísticos de primera magnitud. La exposición está compuesta por fotografías de localidades de Castilla-La Mancha y de Nueva York, completadas por un documental titulado «Nueva York y Castilla-La Mancha: visiones y contrastes». El autor y director es José Talavera.
El objetivo de esta muestra es la promoción y difusión de aspectos culturales y turísticos castellano-manchegos, en paralelismo a una de las ciudades más importante del mundo, Nueva York, y la promoción de aspectos culturales de nuestra región en el ámbito internacional. 

* Back Tomorrow: Federico García Lorca / Poet in New York > New York Public Library > Hasta Julio 20 > Lorca.

Federico García Lorca, Animal fabuloso dirigiéndose a una casa / Fabulous beast approaching a house, India ink and colored pencil on paper, 1929–30, Colección Gloria García Lorca, Madrid


In June 1929, at a time when young writers and painters dreamed of living in Paris, Federico García Lorca (1898–1936), Spain’s greatest modern poet and playwright, broke boldly with tradition and sailed for New York. His nine months here, followed by three months in Havana, changed his vision of poetry, the theater, and the social role of the artist.
Lorca came to New York to study English but devoted himself instead to writing Poet in New York, a howl of protest against racial bigotry, mindless consumption, and the adoration of technology. “What we call civilization, he called slime and wire,” the critic V. S. Pritchett once wrote. But Lorca’s book reaches beyond New York—“this maddening, boisterous Babel”—into the depths of the psyche, in a search for wholeness and redemption.
In 1936, the poet left the manuscript of Poet in New York on the desk of his Madrid publisher with a note saying he would be “back tomorrow,” probably to discuss final details. He never returned. Weeks later, at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, he was brutally murdered by fascist elements in Granada, his body thrown into an unmarked mass grave. The book was published posthumously in 1940, but the manuscript mysteriously disappeared, lost to scholars for decades. The Fundación Federico García Lorca in Madrid and The New York Public Library exhibit it now for the first time, together with drawings, photographs, letters, and mementos—traces of a Poet in New York . . . and of New York in a poet.


James Turrell > Hasta Septiembre 25 > Guggenheim Museum > Turrell.

James Turrell’s first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980 focuses on the artist’s groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special focus on the role of site-specificity in his practice. At its core is Aten Reign(2013), a major new project that recasts the Guggenheim rotunda as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light. One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, the installation reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic architecture—its openness to nature, graceful curves, and magnificent sense of space—as one of Turrell’s Skyspaces, referencing in particular his magnum opus the Roden Crater Project (1979– ). Reorienting visitors’ experiences of the rotunda from above to below, Aten Reign gives form to the air and light occupying the museum’s central void, proposing an entirely new experience of the building. Other works from throughout the artist’s career will be displayed in the museum’s Annex Level galleries, offering a complement and counterpoint to the new work in the rotunda. Organized in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, James Turrell comprises one of three of major Turrell exhibitions spanning the United States during summer 2013. This exhibition is curated by Carmen Giménez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, and Nat Trotman, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Since the birth of photography in 1839, artists have used the medium to explore subjects close to home—the quotidian, intimate, and overlooked aspects of everyday existence. This exhibition examines the photographs and videos made by a wide range of artists during the last four decades. Featuring forty works from the Museum's collection, it includes photographs by John Baldessari, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Fischli & Weiss, Jan Groover, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Elizabeth McAlpine, Gabriel Orozco, David Salle, Robert Smithson, Stephen Shore, and William Wegman among others, as well as video by artists such as Martha Rosler, Ilene Segalove, and Svetlana and Igor Kopystiansky.

*Velázquez's Portrait of Francesco I d'Este > A Masterpiece from the Galleria Estense, Modena > Hasta Julio 14 > Met Museum > Velazquez.


Velázquez (Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez) (Spanish, 1599–1660). Duke Francesco I d'Este, 1638. Oil on canvas. Galleria Estense, Modena © su concessione del Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali.

Among the most distinctive portraits by Diego Velázquez is one he painted of Francesco I d'Este (1610–58), the Duke of Modena, during the duke's visit to Madrid in 1638 to secure the support of Philip IV. The duke is shown in armor, wearing a red sash, his head turned toward the viewer. It is a work that conveys a quality of arrogance and sensuality, and is a high watermark in the history of baroque portraiture, while also illustrating the importance of Velázquez's portraits to Spanish diplomacy. In 1843 the painting was acquired by the Galleria Estense—one of the most prestigious of Italy's regional museums—in Modena, Italy, and it has never before been lent to an institution in the United States. 

Xul Solar and Jorge Luis Borges: The Art of Friendship > Hasta Julio 20 > Americas Society Gallery > ASG.


This will be the first solo exhibition in New York dedicated to painter, writer, and occultist Xul Solar, born Oscar Agustín Alejandro Schulz Solari (1887-1963). The show will offer an in-depth examination of the public and private aspects of Solar's long friendship and vigorous exchange of ideas with famed writer and fellow Argentine Jorge Luis Borges. The central concept of the exhibition will explore how a friendship—a private, intimate affair—can affect public cultural and intellectual discourse. Solar and Borges' influences on each other led to groundbreaking artistic work produced by them individually and collaboratively. The exhibition will feature a selection of Xul Solar's exquisite early paintings as well as collaborative publications, translations, objects, and artistic interventions in books by the two friends. Public programs will include cross-disciplinary events and a panel discussion featuring Maria Kodama, Sergio Baur, Patricia Artundo,  and Silvia Molloy, as well as poetry readings by Lila Zemborain and Cecilia Vicuña. Americas Society will also produce a fully illustrated publication to accompany the exhibition.
Xul Solar and Jorge Luis Borges: The Art of Friendship will be on view at the Phoenix Art Museum from September 21 - December 31, 2013


Bronx Calling: The Second AIM Biennial The Bronx Museum of the Arts > Hasta Septiembre 8 BRONX.

Hopper Drawing is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the drawings and creative process of Edward Hopper (1882–1967). More than anything else, Hopper’s drawings reveal the continually evolving relationship between observation and invention in the artist’s work, and his abiding interest in the spaces and motifs—the street, the movie theatre, the office, the bedroom, the road—that he would return to throughout his career as an artist. This exhibition showcases the Whitney’s unparalleled collection of Hopper’s work, which includes over 2,500 drawings bequeathed to the museum by his widow Josephine Hopper, many of which have never before been exhibited or researched. The exhibition surveys Hopper’s significant and underappreciated achievements as a draftsman, and pairs many of his greatest oil paintings, including Early Sunday Morning (1930), New York Movie (1939), Office at Night (1940), and Nighthawks (1942), with their preparatory drawings and related works. This exhibition also features groundbreaking archival research into the buildings, spaces and urban environments that inspired his work.

Nacho Rodriguez Bach “Psychedelic Patio” > Hasta Julio 13 > Dillon Gallery > Patio.

Asterismos. Nacho Rodriguez Bach

Nacho Rodriguez Bach (b. 1966, Mexico City) believes that we are human because we question ourselves, as we shift between two or more perspectives of the same event. We make sense of the world by creating an image that we can feel, and through assigning meaning, we construct from the outside what already exists inside.
“Psychedelic Patio” explores facets of ambiguity by bridging technology and folklore. When the mind is altered by being pushed out of its comfort zone, it questions what it already knows, creating an alternate framework in which information is relabeled and shuffled around, generating new knowledge from old data. It is how we weave information that matters.
Patios are domesticated environments where not much happens, but the ordinary becomes extraordinary when its elements are used as windows. A tile wall, a fountain, a flower and the sky become portals into the world inside of us.


Estrada: Sailing through design > Julio 17 a Octubre 11 >
AIGA National Design Center > Estrada.




“Estrada: Sailing through design” is an exhibition structured around the graphic designer Manuel Estrada’s visual diaries, which he uses to register his working process including ideas, perceptions and first sketches. The exhibition’s goal is to reveal not only Estrada’s specific creative process but also the steps that any design project may involve. The show takes us from first ideas to final designs, guiding us through the stages in between where concepts and shapes change until reaching the most adequate conceptual, contextual and formal result.
“Estrada: Sailing through design” is also a journey through Spanish culture. Mainly devoted to corporate identity and editorial design, Estrada has worked for some of the most significant cultural institutions and companies in Spain. Through his designs we encounter the writers, institutions and events that are at the core of contemporary Spanish life.


* She-City > Eduardo Anievas > Julio 12 a Julio 21 > Centro Español > Anievas.

“She-City” is an exhibition of female figures and cityscapes by Spanish painter Eduardo Anievas. The show, hosted by the Centro Español ( 239 West 14th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues ), will have an opening reception on Friday, July 12th from 6-9pm with complimentary sangria and will run through July 21st.
“She-City” combines two of Anievas’ recurring subjects; the female form and pedestrians in urban street scenes. Anievas’ figures exude a dignified power complimented by their rich and varied environs- colorful geometries and patterns fill the backgrounds of the paintings. A lonely silhouette wanders through a melancholy cityscape, an exuberant flamenco dancer spirals between bright squares, a pregnant nude captured in quotidian simplicity radiates serenity.
