Aztec Metropolis: the Spanish Conquest and the Birth of Mexico City: A Talk by Barbara Mundy

Roosevelt House
47-49 East 65th Street
New York, NY

March 6, 6:30pm 

Barbara Mundy is Professor of Art History at Fordham University and has written widely on the cartography of the indigenous peoples of Mexico. Her newest book, The Death of Aztec Tenochtitlan, the Life of Mexico City (2015) looks at the ecology and ritual life of one of the largest cities in the world in the 16th century, as it was transformed from the Aztec imperial capital into the center of the Spanish viceroyalty. She has won multiple awards for her scholarship, including two for this recent book and the Nebenzahl Prize in the History of Cartography for The Mapping of New Spain (1996). She contributed to the path breaking series The History of Cartography, which received the American Historical Association’s James Henry Breasted Prize for 1999, and she edited, with Mary Miller, Painting a Map of Sixteenth-Century Mexico City: Land, Writing and Native Rule(2012), an interdisciplinary study of a rare indigenous map.

Rachel Gisela Cohen, Camouflage

Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

Through March 23
Opening Reception: March 1, 6-9pm 

Thomas Hunter Project Space is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings and drawings by New York City-based artist Rachel Gisela Cohen.
 
In nature, bright, bold coloration and patterning is often a signifier of seduction or a warning sign for danger; like the juxtaposing yellow and black stripes found on a wasp, or the crimson circled abdomen of a black widow spider. Aposematic color and patterning is used as a signal, or warning sign for predators. The color and patterning of Cohen’s sequined encrusted chromatic paintings stem from both an observation and reflection on organisms and materials found deep inside Costa Rican rainforest ecosystems and New York City’s garment district. Using the decorative as a defense mechanism, her work reflects on beauty, surface and the excess of contemporary culture, dancing between the natural and material world.
 

Marina Rosenfeld: Amplification

The Artists' Institute
132 E. 65th Street
New York, NY

Through March 30

Marina Rosenfeld creates sound systems. Sometimes these are performances for military orchestras or for rows of earbud-linked teenagers; at other times they take the form of physical interventions into sites, charging various objects (bass cannons, PA loudspeakers, or microphone clusters) with the tasks of amplification and reproduction. In every instance, Rosenfeld carefully attends to the distribution and directionality of amplified bodies in space, considering the relations of power that these arrangements concretize and contest. Eschewing sound as transmission—the authoritative, unidirectional pronouncement—Rosenfeld explores the disruptive, feminist potential of machinic propagation. She programs unruly flows of sonic material in closed circuits or recursive, feedback-prone systems, interrupting the silence of the white cube with momentary eruptions of noise and vocality.
 

Hans Hofmann: The California Exhibitions, 1931

Leubsdorf Gallery
132 East 68th Street
New York, NY

Through May 5

At the invitation of the artist and educator Worth Ryder, Hans Hofmann traveled from Munich to teach at the University of California at Berkeley in 1930 and again in 1931. In the summer of 1931, Hofmann mounted his first exhibitions in the United States, in San Francisco at the Palace of the Legion of Honor and across the bay at Berkeley’s Havilland Hall.  Ryder helped to organize the exhibitions, and he apologized in his short catalogue text for the Legion of Honor that the exhibition included only drawings rather than the artist’s paintings—“but,” he insisted, “in these drawings, so small in size yet so vast in scope, the greatest achievements of modern art are in solution.”

Hunter College’s exhibition, Hans Hofmann: The California Exhibitions, 1931 revisits Hofmann’s 1931 exhibitions and the drawings Hofmann showed, to show what Ryder saw as the solutions of modern art. Included in the Hunter installation will be some thirty works, all of which were included in the San Francisco and Berkeley shows, drawn from the holdings from the Renate, Hans, and Maria Hofmann Trust: portraits, figure studies, and landscapes, most completed in Europe in the late 1920s, alongside his students in Saint-Tropez, others realized on the West Coast, as he discovered the California landscape.   

Hans Hofmann: The California Exhibitions, 1931 is organized by Hunter College MA students and Hofmann Research Fellows Mindy Friedman, Chika Jenkins, and Anna Tome, with Howard Singerman, professor and Phyllis and Joseph Caroff Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Hunter College.  It is supported by a generous grant from the Renate, Hans, and Maria Hofmann Trust.
 

Sironi cupo: a lecture by Emily Braun

Center for Italian Modern Art
421 Broome Street, Fourth Floor
New York, NY

March 13, 6pm

CIMA hosts Distinguished Professor Emily Braun for a special talk on Mario Sironi. She will address the themes of Sironi’s works on view in the current CIMA exhibition and in the context of the immediate postwar milieu in Italy (1918–1924), before the Fascist consolidation of power. The meaning of “cupo” (dark/ deep/ gloomy) a word often applied to Sironi’s style and person, will be used, instead, to interrogate the artist’s prolific representation of mannequins, mechanized protagonists, and automata in these years. Profoundly different from, if indebted to, the iconography of de Chirico’s metaphysical art, Sironi’s rendition of the dehumanized figure represents a wholesale break with past narrative traditions and anything but a “return to order.”

Crease: Rachelle Dang and Kim Hoeckele
curated by Laura Frantz

Underdonk
1329 Willoughby Avenue
Brooklyn, NY

Through March 31
Opening Reception: March 1, 6pm
 
How does the body carry history?
 
Underdonk is pleased to present new work by Rachelle Dang and Kim Hoeckele. The show features sculpture and photography made in conversation with history, mining ethnographic, scientific, and art historical images as source material. Through Hoeckele’s lens, Athenian marble, worn away by centuries of human feet, takes on the texture of wrinkled skin. A terracotta of Venus, under Dang’s hand, goes from idealized to abject. The artists complicate the legacy of this history and challenge the authority of the cultures that created them. Their work proposes a messier standard of beauty: one that is mixed, eroded, and patched together; creased but also caressed.
 

Nari Ward: We the People

New Museum
235 Bowery
New York, NY

Through May 26

“Nari Ward: We the People” will feature over thirty sculptures, paintings, videos, and large-scale installations from throughout Ward’s twenty-five-year career, highlighting his status as one of the most important and influential sculptors working today. Since the early 1990s, Ward has produced his works by accumulating staggering amounts of humble materials and repurposing them in consistently surprising ways. His approach evokes a variety of folk traditions and creative acts of recycling from Jamaica, where he was born, as well as the material textures of Harlem, where he has lived and worked for the past twenty-five years. Yet Ward also relies on research into specific histories and sites to uncover connections among geographically and culturally disparate communities and to explore the tension between tradition and transformation.

Permanence and Change the 2019 Kreft Juried Exhibition, will examine the desire to capture a moment in time, perhaps as an extension produced from human longing for stability and steadiness, in our personal and social relationships. To be human is to change. We can explore these themes with depictions in the contrast of the spiritual—one's relationship with God—and the material—one's relationship to the body or to the phenomena of the physical world. With themes ranging from the decay of atoms to the constancy of love, how can we find ways to recognize and reconcile these two elements of human existence and desire within the visual arts? Prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, digital images, sculpture, fiber art and video are eligible.
