BECOMING VINCENT ALL OVER AGAIN

Popular interest in Vincent van Gogh has grown strikingly in recent decades. With the vigorous pursuit of technical and scholarly enquiry, a string of studies has confirmed the authenticity of paintings made in 1886, the year of his arrival to Paris, includingVase with Poppies at the Wadsworth Atheneum. A series of important exhibition projects are encouraging a re-appraisal of the stylistic arc of his career and his critical fortune in the 20th century, including next year’s Van Gogh and America at the Detroit Institute of Arts. The panel connects the dots between conservation science, archival work, and professional collaboration that advance our knowledge and appreciation of this most fascinating artist.

MAVERICK MODERNISM: FIREBRAND WOMEN OF THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY

Frida Kahlo, Hilma af Klint, Amrita Shergil, Tseng Yu-ho and Georgia O‘ Keefe are among a rare group of iconic female painters who defied the norms of their time and created major bodies of art at the turn of the 20th century, among a male dominated arena. The world was experiencing dramatic change as industrial, economic and cultural revolutions spread across the globe, setting the stage for new and dynamic artistic movements that would make permanent impressions on the structure of art making. The panel examines the work of these artists whose outlier status as women did not dissuade them nor does it alter the significance of their contribution to modernism. What were their challenges  and what is their legacy and impact on subsequent generations of artists?

WHERE IS LATIN AMERICAN ART? CENTER STAGE.

Now that a Da Vinci has headlined a Postwar and Contemporary auction, what is the role of market categories today? The panel probes this question focusing particularly on Latin American art. While art is often understood along national lines, some categories have art historical origins and others were coined and codified by market players. Terms like „Latin American art“ may be helpful in marketing a group of artists, but also prove problematic, with some artists seeing them as labels that silo and marginalize their work. In this globalized and highly connected art world, are they even relevant? And why are some artists able to transcend these categories? Why isn’t Argentina-born Lucio Fontana, for instance, „Latin American“?

FORCES OF NATURE

With the environment in peril, artists are making the symbiotic connection between nature, art, and human life. As they increasingly work in natural materials, forms and messages, so too are museums presenting eco-relevant projects. The line between art and nature blurs: When is an enchanted old growth forest in New York or a Mangrove hammock in Miami a work of art in its own right or a natural gallery setting for live arts performance? Historic museums are almost all set in parks, and newer museums and galleries are designed with native landscapes as critical areas for the display of sculpture. Indoors and out audiences seek spiritual and visual connections to the earth and artists and art institutions respond.

IT’S A MATTER OF „TASTE“

What is taste after all? “Good” taste seems to suggest a special knowledge and sophistication while “bad” taste connotes the “base” or “vulgar”. Throughout the 20th century, bold declarations concerning ‘good’ and ‘bad’ taste were dictated by an elite minority and uniformly adopted by mass followers. But a counter culture of artists, designers, and filmmakers reacted differently, instead snubbing assumed ideals and prioritizing “bad” taste as a creative goal. Kitsch, camp, fakery, extremism, and “B-rated” became the monikers of this new underground cultural elite. What deeper meanings do these judgements of art, fashion, or film imply about society’s values? Our panelists explore this fascinating topic and consider its relation to contemporary and future cultural landscapes.

NICHE TO GLOBAL: THE ART MARKET’S RECENT EVOLUTION

How has the art world moved from a niche lifestyle hobby to a billion dollar global industry?  In what ways has this shift affected the museum, the collector, the dealer, and our prevailing culture? Our panel discusses the good and bad effects of this transformation and whether they are with us for the long or short-term.

PUBLIC TENSION

Artist Joseph La Piana brings color and sculptural form to the Park Avenue corridor this spring, just outside the doors of the panel venue, the Park Avenue Armory.  And despite the vivid lyricism of his work, a hidden criticality rests within the works as made clear in their titles: Tension Sculptures.  Most certainly, public art—at least great public art—often provides such a provocative duality.  Some people love it, while others deride it.  In a hyper politicized world, people are quick to take sides. Just look at the current debacle on the city’s west side facing the Vessel, Thomas Heatherwick’s “stairway to nowhere” at Hudson Yards or to Jeff Koons’s Ballerina sculpture at Rockefeller Center in 2017. Both works have been heavily critiqued by the so-called art world yet both were beloved by the very public for which they were ostensibly made.  This panel discusses the realities of making art just that. Public.

TOWARD A FEMINIST INTERIOR

Search the internet for “Feminism and Interior Design” and you’ll find results advocating the reclaiming of the color pink or images of interiors showcasing empowering catchphrases on the wall. Beyond these mere aesthetic or surface considerations, we ask in conversation: What is a feminist interior? In what way has feminism informed the practice of interior design? This panel discusses the relationship of feminism to interior design through the lens of history, theory, and practice, and explores the ways that design is being used to create powerful and inspiring environments for women by women.

ART AND POLITICAL ACTION: ART’S STRONGEST CALLS

What has been the historical relationship between visual art and politics and what is it today? Artist Seth Cameron and art critic Christian Viveros-Fauné (author of Social Forms: A Short of Political Art (David Zwirner Books, 2018)) engage in a conversation about paradigmatic cases that have given voice to art’s strongest calls to political action over the last 150 years. From Francisco de Goya’s The Disasters of War (1810-20) to David Hammons’s In the Hood (1993), the panelists examine the ways in which artists have dealt with local and global political crises, the rise of consumer culture and the challenges of technologies—and how the long-lasting impact of their contributions continue to compel us today.

LEONARD COHEN: A CRACK IN EVERYTHINGLeonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything is the first exhibition entirely devoted to the world-renowned novelist, poet, and singer/songwriter who inspired generations of writers, musicians, and artists, Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) was an extraordinary poet of the imperfection of the human condition, giving voice to what it means to be fully alert to the complexities and desires of both body and soul. For decades, he tenaciously supplied the world with melancholy and urgent observations on the state of the human heart, in songs such as “Suzanne,” “Bird on a Wire,” and “Hallelujah.” With equal parts gravitas and grace, Cohen teased out a startlingly inventive and singular language, depicting both an exalted spirituality and an earthly sexuality. His interweaving of the sacred and the profane, of mystery and accessibility, was such a compelling combination it became seared into memory.

THE SELF-PORTRAIT, FROM SCHIELE TO BECKMANNThis is an unprecedented exhibition that examines works primarily from Austria and Germany made between 1900 and 1945. This groundbreaking show is unique in its examination and focus on works of this period. Approximately 70 self-portraits by more than 30 artists—both well-known figures and others who deserve greater recognition—will be united in the presentation, which is comprised of loans from public and private collections worldwide.

Admired for their revelatory nature, self-portraits yield insight into both the appearance and the essence of the artist, in some cases providing almost confessional portrayals, sharing profound insights regarding their self-image as a maker, and their perceived relationship to society. On a more universal level, they can also expose deeper truths about the human condition. During the first four decades of the twentieth century, the self-portrait, a genre that has transcended the ages, reached new heights in Germany and Austria.

PLAY IT LOUD: INSTRUMENTS OF ROCK & ROLLFor the first time, a major museum exhibition examines the instruments of rock and roll. One of the most important artistic movements of the twentieth century, rock and roll’s seismic influence was felt across culture and society. Early rock musicians were attracted to the wail of the electric guitar and the distortion of early amplifiers, a sound that became forever associated with rock music and its defining voice. Rock fans have long been fascinated with the instruments used by musicians. The instruments used in rock and roll had a profound impact on this art form that forever changed music. The exhibition is co-organized with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and will present approximately 130 instruments alongside posters and costumes.
