Whitney Museum of American Art: Yayoi Kusama

Whitney Museum of American Art: Yayoi Kusama | Art You Need | Scoop.it
The Whitney Museum of American Art. Explore works, exhibitions, and events online. Located in New York City.

Well known for her use of dense patterns of polka dots and nets, as well as her intense, large-scale environments, Yayoi Kusama works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance, and immersive installation. Born in Japan in 1929, Kusama came to the United States in 1957 and quickly found herself at the epicenter of the New York avant-garde. After achieving fame through groundbreaking exhibitions and art “happenings,” she returned to her native country in 1973 and is now one of Japan’s most prominent contemporary artists. This retrospective features works spanning Kusama’s career.

Kusama’s Fireflies on the Water, a work in the Whitney’s collection, is being shown in conjunction with Yayoi Kusama and is on view in the Lobby Gallery.

Brooklyn Museum acquires rare painting from colonial Peru

Brooklyn Museum acquires rare painting from colonial Peru | Art You Need | Scoop.it

"A Merry Company along the Banks of the Rimac River" was painted in the 18th century in Lima. It comes from the viceroyalty of Peru.

The museum purchased the painting by the unknown artist with proceeds from the sale of another work in its collection.

It says it's a work that would have been displayed in an elite household "as a visible demonstration of the owner's ... privilege within the Spanish empire."

Jasper Johns: Variations on a Theme

Jasper Johns: Variations on a Theme | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Not just the Jasper Johns exhibit. Look at what's coming up this year!

 

Jasper Johns’s creative impulses and collaborations with distinguished print workshops have produced over 360 editions, acclaimed as some of the most pioneering artworks of the last century. Printmaking has been integral to the American artist’s career for more than five decades. His interest in making variations of a single motif found a natural outlet in the medium, which allows for the reworking of ideas and records the stages that lead to a final image. While lithography has been his primary technique, Johns has also used intaglio, silkscreen, and lead relief to interpret subjects drawn from popular culture, his earlier work, and the history of art.

Reynold Reynolds is a cutting-edge experimental filmmaker who uses an arresting visual vocabulary to explore issues of transformation, consumption, and decay. Primarily working with 16mm and Super 8mm film, he builds his own automatic motion controller systems and attaches them to his camera to achieve a unique stop-motion filming technique. His earlier works, such as Drowning Room (2000) and Burn (2002), investigated the darker elements of human experience, often dealing with man's tendency to use denial as a form of adaptation to life, sometimes with dangerous consequences.

Wovon wir reden, wenn wir von Pop reden ... | Kolumnen | Archiv | frieze d/e | Art You Need | Scoop.it

Some people argue about love; we argue about Pop. Instead of uniting us in ebullience, Pop makes us flat and obstinate, like bubble gum stuck to the sole of a shoe. Pop Art is a different matter; we can agree on the works found under this historical label. But the word ‘Pop’ – standing alone or in front of ‘culture’, ‘music’, ‘life’ – overflows with meanings that polarize us.

Get to Cleveland! I think I can manage it one of these days. Look what's in store!

1. How did American artists represent the Jazz Age? The exhibition Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties brings together for the first time the work of more than 60 painters, sculptors, and photographers who explored a new mode of modern realism in the years bounded by the aftermath of the Great War and the onset of the Great Depression.

2. William Henry Johnson (1901–1970) is a pivotal figure in modern American art.

3. The Feminine Ideal in 19th Century Paris: Primarily drawn from the permanent collection, this exhibition will juxtapose the museum’s strong holdings of works on paper by Mary Cassatt with images of women by her contemporaries such as Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Berthe Morisot, Auguste Renoir, James Tissot, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
