American Modern: Hopper to O'Keeffe at MoMA is curated from the museum’s permanent collection and seeks to take a fresh look at American art created between 1915 and 1950.

As you know, American society was undergoing a dramatic and rapid amount of change in the early 20th century. American Modern is a thoughtful study of the period’s cultural preoccupations. It’s also an attempt to prove that the Modern recognized the contributions of American artists during its earliest years.

The show includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures and is organized thematically—from urban and rural landscapes, still-life compositions, portraitures, and to images of industry. 49 artists are represented, all born from 1870 to 1917, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Hopper, and Andrew Wyeth.

Attaché Tip: Don’t miss O’Keeffe’s classic “Farmhouse Window and Door” outside the exhibition’s entrance.

The Beatles
Ladies and Gentlemen, The Beatles
February 6th, 2014 (All day) to May 10th, 2014 (All day)
New York Public Library for the Performing Arts

Fifty years ago The Beatles came to America. On Friday, February 7, 1964, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr arrived from the U.K. at the newly-named John F. Kennedy International Airport. With cameras flashing and reporters jostling, they were whisked into Manhattan amid the screams, shouts and tears of New York area teens, braving the cold for a mere glimpse of the band. Then, that Sunday, the veritable king of the television variety show, Ed Sullivan, introduced them to a captivated American audience of more than 73 million viewers—at the time a television record. And just like that Beatlemania was upon us.

Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! brings us back to the early ‘60s when rock & roll was re-energized—some say saved—by four lads from Liverpool. The exhibition covers the period from early 1964 through mid-1966—the years Beatlemania ran rampant in America. During this time the band affected nearly every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, art, advertising, media, and, of course, music. On display are many Beatles-related pop culture artifacts from the period, as well as correspondence, instruments, posters, photographs, interviews, interactive displays, and an oral history booth in which visitors can leave their own impressions of The Beatles.

Created by The GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. LIVE and Fab Four Exhibits, Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! provides fresh new insight into how and why The Beatles impacted America in the 1960s—and beyond.

Now through May 10, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center

Mon, Thu noon–8 p.m.; Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat Noon–6 p.m.

Exterior of the Whitney Museum - an NYC attraction
Whitney Biennial
March 7th, 2014 (All day) to May 25th, 2014 (All day)
Whitney Museum of American Art

The 2014 Whitney Biennial will take a bold new form as three curators from outside the Museum—Stuart Comer (Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art at MoMA), Anthony Elms (Associate Curato

The 2014 Whitney Biennial will take a bold new form as three curators from outside the Museum—Stuart Comer (Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art at MoMA), Anthony Elms (Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia), and Michelle Grabner (artist and Professor in the Painting and Drawing Department at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago)—each oversee one floor, representing a range of geographic vantages and curatorial methodologies.

Donna De Salvo, Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Programs at the Whitney, noted: “The 2014 Biennial brings together the findings of three curators with very distinct points of view. There is little overlap in the artists they have selected and yet there is common ground. This can be seen in their choice of artists working in interdisciplinary ways, artists working collectively, and artists from a variety of generations. Together, the 103 participants offer one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years.”

This Biennial will be the last to take place in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s building at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street before the Museum moves downtown to its new building in the spring of 2015. This is the 77th in the Museum’s ongoing series of Annuals and Biennials begun in 1932 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney.

Whitney curators Elisabeth Sussman and Jay Sanders, who organized the widely acclaimed 2012 Biennial, will advise on the exhibition.

Bill Cunningham: Facades - an NY event
Bill Cunningham: Facades
March 14th, 2014 (All day) to June 15th, 2014 (All day)

In 1968, photographer Bill Cunningham embarked on an eight-year project to document the architectural riches and fashion history of New York City.

In 1968, photographer Bill Cunningham embarked on an eight-year project to document the architectural riches and fashion history of New York City. Scouring the city’s thrift stores, auction houses, and street fairs for vintage clothing, and scouting sites on his bicycle, Cunningham generated a photographic essay entitled Facades, which paired models—in particular his muse, fellow photographer Editta Sherman—in period costumes with historic settings.

Although by turns whimsical and bold, Cunningham’s project also was part of the larger cultural zeitgeist in New York City, during an era in which issues surrounding both the preservation and the problems of the urban landscape loomed large. The photographer donated 88 silver gelatin prints from the series to the New-York Historical Society in 1976, and now, almost four decades later, Cunningham’s work will be reconsidered in a show that will highlight the historical perspective the photographs suggest—not just of the distant past, but of the particular time in which they were created.
