Suggest a thread to mention interesting exhibitions you mean to attend.   Philip Pearlstein's retrospective at Monclair Art Museum, till Feb 1, 2009.   will add more later

here too   definitely planning to go.  

The Wallace Gallery at Columbia U. has a small show of works by Edward Koren, one of the cartoonists at The New Yorker. Interesting to see his evolution - as a student at CU, Koren worked on the humo

Just noticed there’s a fairly big Miró show opening at MoMA on 2/24. Makes it feel like spring is just around the corner.

 

Went to Monday night's after hours preview, but after stopping at Connolly's Pub across the (54th) street. What's not to like?

 

Me - I especially liked the multimedia pieces on view.

The next show I am looking forward to is https://philbrook.org/exhibitions/larry-clark-tulsa/ 

 

Here is the museums blurb.  "World-renowned photographer/filmmaker Larry Clark was born and raised in Tulsa. From 1963 to 1971, he photographed the daily lives of his friends. He captured unforgettable images of sex, violence, and drug use alongside intimate moments of solitary contemplation. These images were collected in Clark’s legendary and controversial 1971 book, Tulsa.

These pictures launched both Clark’s career and a new style of photography marked by equal parts intimacy and objectivity. Filmmakers Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, and Gus Van Sant cited Clark’s visual influence on their films Taxi DriverRumble Fish, and Drugstore Cowboy, respectively.

The gritty, honest, and ultimately compassionate look at drug abuse in Tulsa feels timely and vital even now as the United States grapples with a wide-reaching opioid addiction and renewed debates about gun and domestic violence. These concerns are at the core of the Philbrook Downtown presentation of selections from Philbrook’s newest acquisition, a 50-print portfolio of photographs from Clark’s Tulsa series.

Larry Clark: Tulsa is presented with generous support from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation."

If you like this kind of thing, the Adolph Gottlieb show at Pace (25th St) is museum scale and quality, and a knockout. All post-pictograph stuff.

 

I thought the recent Jasper Johns works at Matthew Marks we’re kind of sad. No sign of a major artist left.

Basquiat at the Brant Foundation. Wow. I saw one of his collaborations with Warhol at the Whitney pretty recently, so this felt like a continuation. The space is quite spectacular. And it still has that new museum smell.

Well certainly an 88-year old artist is working differently than a 40-year old one, no?

 

Have you ever seen any late-career work of deKooning - amazing, but in a totally different way. ( I think he also suffered from Alzheimer's late in life).

It's not so much about age; after all, Picasso, Matisse, and many other painters enjoyed a productive old age, despite physical challenges. It's more a question of how volitional DeKooning's later work is.  I don't have the answer, but if you compared the later with the earlier -- without knowing anything about the circumstances of their composition -- would you find the work of similar stature?
