Through photographs and a collection of ephemera, Joe’s Junk Yard tells the story of an empire built on the steel of crashed El Caminos and used car parts, the effects of a changing economy and shifts in societal values, and the decades long struggle of a first generation immigrant family to maintain the American Dream.
April 14 - July 23, 2017
Matthew Jensen spent several months investigating four historic northern NJ parks and landscapes to create site-specific artworks for this exhibition. Park Wonder utilizes photography, sculpture, found materials, and local history. By bringing visual traces of surrounding landscapes into a museum setting, this exhibition fosters connections between our natural and cultural resources.
Regarding the Figure presents works from The Studio Museum in Harlem's permanent collection that explore the practice of portraiture and figuration as a means of celebrating personal and collective histories, ideas and identities. Ranging in date from the late nineteenth century to the present, and representing some forty artists from Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859–1937) to Njideka Akunyili Crosby (b. 1983), the works present diverse and at times unexpected methods of figuration, from the traditional (the portrait bust) to the experimental, and show subjects who come from the realms of both the celebrated and the anonymous.
Library Copies is a culmination of work over the past three months as a visiting artist in the Reanimation Library currently housed at the Queens Museum. The windowless library inspired a new series of images generated using the library's black and white photocopier.
Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art
One needs to look no further than literature, cuisine and music to see evidence of the South's profound influence on American culture, and consequently much of the world. This unprecedented exhibition addresses and complicates the many realities, fantasies and myths that have long captured the public's imagination about the American South. Presenting a wide range of perspectives, from both within and outside of the region, the exhibition creates a composite portrait of southern identity through the work of 60 artists. The art reflects upon and pulls apart the dynamic nature of the South's social, political and cultural landscape.
Utopia/Dystopia: A Paradigm Shift featuring La Citta' Perfetta by Olivo Barbieri, a film consisting of 7,942 stills and 22 short films
Utopia/Dystopia—A Paradigm Shift is the first "manifesto exhibition" to be held in the kunsthalle designed by Amanda Levete (AL_A). Installed in three of MAAT's galleries, this key-inaugural project will be a large group show featuring more than 60 works by a range of international artists and architects, some appearing for the first time in Portugal. The show will reveal how the two fields have represented ideas of utopia, or anticipated emerging notions of dystopia, since the early 1970s, with a strong focus on work produced over the last five years. Participants include architects such as Archigram, Archizoom, åyr, Didier Faustino, Yona Friedman, Aldo Rossi, Superstudio, and artists such as Kader Attia, Olivo Barbieri, Jordi Colomer, Tacita Dean, DIS Collective, Cao Fei, Ângela Ferreira, Cyprien Gailard, Jonas Staal, Ryan Trecartin, and Wolfgang Tillmans.
Pello Irazu is a key artist on the contemporary artistic scene, an outstanding figure in renovation of the Basque sculpture and, fundamentally, a creator who since the 80s has developed a coherent work extending over three decades. Alternating sculpture—the medium in which he develops a broader spectrum, ranging from small three-dimensional creations to large-sized installations and hybrid objects—with photography, drawing, and mural painting, Irazu's work addresses the problems that occur in the relationships established between our bodies, objects, images, and spaces.
Revealing Pictures: Photographs from the Christopher E. Olofson Collection
Works on view by Edmund Clark, Daniel and Geo Fuchs, Pieter Hugo, Liu Zheng, Zanele Muholi, Robert Polidori, and others serve as striking examples of photography's ability to explore issues of identity, place, and nationhood. Muholi began making a series of portraits as a form of visual activism in response to crimes against gays and women in her native South Africa.

Lynn Saville photographs cities at twilight and dawn or as she describes, "the boundary times between night and day." Saville explains, "I began my series titled, "Dark City" to pursue this contrast between aesthetic perception and the subtext of economic distress, a contrast that evoked a disquieting beauty. In effect, I was seeking to capture the ways in which urban places become spaces and vise versa."

For this exhibition, Thomas has created a group of silkscreened portraits to be featured alongside an installation inspired by 1970s domestic interiors, and a two-channel video that weaves together a chorus of black female performers, past and present, including standup comedians Jackie "Moms" Mabley and Wanda Sykes, and pop-culture icons Eartha Kitt and Whitney Houston.
Yamamoto's career as a photographer began in 1993. One of Japan's most important living photographers, Yamamoto has taken many different approaches to photography over the past 20 years. But what has remained constant is the artist's belief that humans are just a small part of nature, united with it and part of it. Throughout his career, Yamamoto has often returned to animals, particularly birds, as a subject, reflecting his childhood fascination with the creatures and his eternal commitment to the unity of humanity and nature. With Tori, the photographer departs on yet another artistic journey, with a new series of quietly moving animal images (tori means "bird" in Japanese). Yamamoto asks himself, and his viewers: What do we see, and what do we identify with, in birds?

Dirt Meridian: Photographs by Andrew Moore
Photographer Andrew Moore has worked along the 100th meridian for the past decade, drawn to its mythic past and the people who call the High Plains home. Although literally the center of the United States, its sparse population teeters between geographic isolation and its prominent role in national and global markets for agriculture, energy, and natural resources. Moore sets this dynamic against the enduring myths of a quintessentially American landscape, balancing the weight of its past against a complex future.

|Lynn Saville: Dark City, Urban America at Night|
Lynn Saville's Dark City photographs illustrate her exploration of urban America between dusk and dawn. In this series, she focuses on evocative spaces that are generally devoid of people. Vacant buildings, shuttered storefronts, and empty streets are the ostensible subjects of her pictures, but the natural cycle of decay and rebirth in urban ecology is at the heart of each of her landscapes of downtowns after dark from New York to Los Angeles.
|Portrait (s) 4th Season Under the Sun|
Between the last fantasies of childhood and the first concerns of the adult world, puberty is a delicate period of physical and psychological transformations. The Dutch photographer Hellen van Meene has for many years produced portraits of teenagers. The gracefully choreographed gestures and glances are tinged with both apprehension and melancholy.

|SYSTEMATICALLY OPEN?—New Forms for Contemporary Image Production|
Curated by Zanele Muholi (b. 1972; lives and works in Johannesburg)
Drawn from a Zulu phrase meaning "Hail, the Dark Lioness," Somnyama Ngonyama uses stylized self-portraiture as a means to commemorate, question, and celebrate the ways the black body has been represented in photography. Augmented with shells, textiles, and other objects, the artist's diverse coiffures explore hair as symbolic primary material and a central facet of African identity and stylistic expression. An acknowledgement of South Africa's political history and a series of activist networks operating today in the country and elsewhere, Muholi's project comments on aesthetic and cultural issues that affect black people, and specifically black women, in Africa and its diaspora.

Combining new and existing work with found objects kept for their significance, the exhibition will unfold throughout the Museum, interacting with historic works in the Collection and with each other. Parker's inspiration has in part been taken from the Museum's eighteenth-century tokens – small objects left by mothers with their babies as a means of identification should they ever return to the Foundling Hospital to claim their child.
Congratulations to Sebastiao Salgado on his election to the seat of The Academie des Beaux Arts of the Institue of France
Congratulations to Matthew Jensen on his 2016 Fellowship
Light and landscape combine as metaphor in numerous works by Jensen. In 2009 the Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired his photographic series The 49 States and exhibited it in After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age (2012). The photographs were derived from months of exploring small towns in the early days of Google Streetview. The series is also in the collection of the National Gallery of Art where it was also exhibited (2016). Other works likeThe Sun Returning, 14 Hour Sunset and Rainbow Around the Sun were exhibited together at Yancey Richardson Gallery as part of Jensen's solo show Feels Like Real (2015).

This exhibit of aerial photographs is about three projects reflecting on climate issues - New York Roof Tops, Tar Sands Extraction, and an ongoing study of evolving agriculture practices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon.
This year the festival focuses on one of its most glorious and dramatic cities: Mexico City. In the 16th century already Tenochtitlan was one of the largest cities in the world with an estimated population of 300.000 residents. Compared to Europe, only Paris, Venice and Constantinople might have rivaled it. It was five times the size of the contemporary London of Henry VIII. Today Mexico City, the former Tenochtitlan counts 25 million people and is one of the largest metropolises in the world.

Into the Night: Modern and Contemporary Art and the Nocturne Tradition
Into the Night: Modern and Contemporary Art and the Nocturne Tradition examines the long tradition of the nocturne in art and how that tradition has expanded to encompass various ways that contemporary artists consider the enigmatic notion of the night. This exhibition is comprised of paintings, photographs, and works on paper that investigate the psychological concepts of darkness, the dreamscape and its connection to the night, and the inter-connectedness of the environment with cultural and artistic discourse.

No Mountains in the Way: Photographs from the Kansas Documentary Survey, 1974
In 1974, with a grant of $5,000 from the NEA, No Mountains in the Way was organized by Jim Enyeart, then curator of photography at the University of Kansas Museum of Art. He and Kansas natives Terry Evans and Larry Schwarm—all artists who have attained considerable achievement in the intervening decades—travelled the state, photographing whatever struck them as representative. Each worked on an assigned theme. Enyeart focused on buildings, Evans on people, and Schwarm on the landscape. Their collective visions combined to poetically reflect place, culture, and custom in Kansas. The exhibition and catalogue were presented in 1975.

Beyond Maps and Atlases by internationally renowned Dutch photographer Bertien van Manen. This is the artist's first body of work produced in Ireland and traces her journey across the island over the past year and a half. During her visits she stayed in the homes of strangers, mostly other photographers living across Ireland, who became friends with van Manen and made work alongside the artist. While travelling she became immersed in Irish literature and was guided by the words and landscapes of Seamus Heaney, John Banville and John McGahern as much as the people she traveled with.

"…the first major exhibition to use visual art as a lens to explore the lure that Coney Island exerted on American culture over a period of 150 years. An extraordinary array of artists viewed Coney Island as a microcosm of the American experience, from its beginnings as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its transformation into an entertainment mecca for the masses, to the closing of Astroland Amusement Park following decades of urban decline."

In monumental and gorgeously realized photographs, Laura Letinsky and Tanya Marcuse penetrate the very crux of the meaning of desire: to long for, to crave, to miss. They thus place themselves in an historical trajectory of the still life genre, as well as extend the genre's parameters.

Featuring works by some 45 artists, Ordinary Pictures surveys a range of conceptual picture-based practices since the 1960s through the lens of the stock photograph and other forms of industrial image production. Despite its apparent throwaway status, the stock image is the primary commodity of a $1 billion global industry with far-reaching effects in the marketplace and the public sphere.
This exhibition will highlight a selection of photographs donated in honor of the 25th anniversary of the National Gallery's photography's collection.

|As a self-taught artist, Männikkö counts few stylistic precedents or influences, and though his interest in the residue of everyday life is the foundation of his image making, his formalism lends itself to metaphoric or existential modes of interpretation. Time Flies includes a range of images – abandoned cars, cemetery portrait sculpture, discarded family photographs - whose subjects bear witness to the passage of time and serve as a poignant meditation on the inevitable collapse of all material things, human or inanimate. Esko Männikköʼs gallery and museum installations place his photographs abutted together to form a single line through the exhibition space, in a variety of ornate, patinaed frames carefully selected to complement the details or subjects of his images.|
The theme of the 14th edition of FOTOGRAFIA – International Festival of Rome is the Present.
In a world of constant and sudden acceleration, photographic practice – whose mechanisms of production and distribution are now almost immediate – present itself as art privileged to fix and define the present, to observe and to delimit its boundaries. Defining the boundaries of the present means in the first place to separate it and to abstract it from the time restrictions that threaten it, which have been already heavily investigated, and turn our gaze instead at that endless moment capable of self-represention and self-determination.
Affordable New York traces over a century of affordable housing activism, documenting the ways in which reformers, policy makers, and activists have fought to transform their city. A focus on current and future housing initiatives demonstrates how New Yorkers continue to promote subsidized housing as a way to achieve diversity, neighborhood stability, and social justice.
