Events in Art and Archaeology

Here and Elsewhere
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  New Museum  •  16 July 2914 - 28 September 2014
 
 
Here and Elsewhere, the first museum-wide exhibition in New York City to feature contemporary art from and about the Arab world. The exhibition brings together more than forty-five artists from over fifteen countries, many of whom live and work internationally.

The exhibition borrows its title from a 1976 film-essay by French directors Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin, and Anne-Marie Miéville. Their film, Ici et ailleurs [Here and Elsewhere], was initially conceived as a pro-Palestinian documentary, but evolved into a complex reflection on the ethics of representation and the status of images as instruments of political consciousness.

Taking inspiration from Godard, Gorin, and Miéville’s film—which has had a strong impact on an entire generation of artists in various Arab countries—“Here and Elsewhere” pays particular attention to the position and role of the artist in the face of historical events. An example of personal reportage can be found in the short videos produced and distributed by Abounaddara, a collective of self-taught filmmakers dispersed throughout Syria, as well as in Bouchra Khalili’s video portraits, which reveal the clandestine journeys of migrants seeking to enter Europe.

Artists such as Hrair Sarkissian, Lamia Joreige, and Hassan Sharif undertake experimental approaches to archival material, rewriting personal and collective traumas, and weaving fragments both real and imagined into their work. Sharif, a conceptual artist in Dubai, works by accumulating surplus materials and found objects, but in contrast to the archaeological pursuits of other artists, his catalogues of manufactured goods reflect on globalized production and consumption. Ala Younis presents a visual essay, an exhibition within the exhibition, in which artworks, archival materials, and objects from popular culture are combined to analyze the representation of the Palestinian struggle within the historical context of Pan-Arabism.

For other artists, traditional mediums like painting, drawing, and sculpture record subtle and intimate shifts in awareness.

A number of pieces on view prompt a reflection on images as spaces of intimacy, such as the works of studio photographer Hashem El Madani, which through the research and efforts of artist Akram Zaatari, reveal the construction of identity at a time when studio photography flourished as a powerful and prolific site of individualized image-making.

Here and Elsewhereis accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue coedited with Negar Azimi and Kaelen Wilson-Goldie of Bidoun magazine.

Garry Winogrand
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  27 June - 21 September 2014
 

The first retrospective in 25 years of work by artist Garry Winogrand (1928–1984) — the renowned photographer of New York City and of American life from the 1950s through the early 1980s — brings together the artist's most iconic images with newly printed photographs from his largely unexamined archive of late  work, brings together the artist's most iconic images with newly printed photographs from his largely unexamined archive of late work. 

More than 300 photographs in the exhibition and more than 400 in the accompanying catalogue attempt to create a portrait of Garry Winogrand — a chronicler of postwar America.

After serving in the military as a weather forecaster, Winogrand first began working as a photographer while studying painting on the G.I. Bill at Columbia University (1948–51).

The Bronx-born Winogr was enormously prolific but largely postponed the editing and printing of his work. Dying suddenly at the age of 56, he left behind approximately 6,500 rolls of film (some 250,000 images) that he had never seen, as well as proof sheets from his earlier years that he had marked but never printed. Roughly half of the photographs in the exhibition have never been exhibited or published until now; over 100 have never before been printed.

Winogrand photographed business moguls, everyday women on the street, famous actors and athletes, hippies, rodeos, politicians, soldiers, animals in zoos, car culture, airports, and antiwar demonstrators and the construction workers who beat them bloody in view of the unmoved police.

The exhibition catalogue Garry Winogrand (448 pages; $85 hardcover; $50 softcover)—published by SFMOMA in association with Yale University Press serves as the most comprehensive volume on Winogrand to date and the only compendium of the artist's work.  Five new essays and nearly 400 plates trace the artist's working methods and major themes.

After New York, Garry Winogrand travels to the Jeu de Paume, Paris (14 October 2014 through 25 January 2015); and the Fundacion MAPFRE, Madrid (3 March through 10 May 2015).

Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  American Museum of Natural History  •  5 April 2014 - 4 January 2015
 

Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, a new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History explores the world of these extraordinary flying reptiles, the first back-boned animals to evolve powered flight. As long as dinosaurs walked the Earth, pterosaurs—ranging from the size of a sparrow to that of a small airplane—ruled the skies until they went extinct 66 million years ago.

The largest exhibition ever presented in the United States about these animals, Pterosaurs highlights the latest research by Museum scientists and leading paleontologists around the world. It also features rare pterosaur fossils from Germany, the United States, and Brazil as well as casts, life-size models, videos, and interactive exhibits that immerse visitors in the mechanics of pterosaur flight.

The exhibition is overseen by Curator Mark Norell, chair of the Division of Paleontology, who conducts pterosaur research in Romania, China, and Mongolia, with Co-curator Alexander Kellner, a Museum research associate and paleontologist at the Museu Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
