European Masterworks From The Permanent CollectionAdd to Google Calendar European Modernism masterpieces are on view in the Museum of Art's permanent collection galleries. Included are artworks by Kandinsky, Mondrian, Picasso, Dali, and many others. In the early 1950s Harris K. Prior, the Museum of Art Director, and Edward Root, Consultant in Art, developed for the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute Museum of Art a small, distinguished collection of paintings and sculptures that were created by pioneers of major 20th-century artistic movements, such as Cubism, Futurism, and Surrealism. The Museum was founded as a collection of art from the United States, but Prior and Root believed that assembling a group of modern European art would be beneficial to demonstrate the influence of Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and other Europeans on American artists. Edward Root explained to the Board of Trustees, “This ought to give a kind of context to the collection, since it was in Europe that the rather strange developments of this century were initiated.” Since the Prior and Root era, the Museum collected additional pieces that strengthen European-American connections. Prior, Root and subsequent Museum personnel were extremely judicious in their selections, so that the European Modernism collection represents each artist at the height of his powers.

Go Figure: Curated by Salman ToorAdd to Google Calendar Aicon Gallery is pleased to present Go Figure, an exhibition curated by artist Salman Toor, featuring the work of Saba Khan, Irfan Hasan, Hiba Schahbaz, Komail Aijazuddin and Saad Qureshi, as well as the curator’s own work. This is the first gathering of these 6 artists in a U.S. group show. They are from different provinces, cities and social strata of Pakistan or the Pakistani diaspora in the United States and United Kingdom. Their work shows an impulse toward the illustrative, the graphic and the sensual. Their pictures range from imagined portraits, inner landscapes, female empowerment, quotations from Western Art History, queerness and kitsch. These artists are urban people but they play with pertinent particularities from their personal histories and those of their chosen cities, or homelands. http://www.artnet.com/galleries/aicon-gallery/go-figure-curated-by-salman-toor/ 35 Great Jones Street New York, NY 10012, USA Thursday, August 11, 2016–Saturday, September 17, 2016 Opening Reception: Thursday, August 11, 2016, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.

Agnes Martin - GuggenheimAdd to Google Calendar Filling the Guggenheim rotunda, this exhibition will trace Agnes Martin’s (1912–2004) career from her early experiments of the 1950s through her mature oeuvre and final paintings, making it the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work since her death in 2004. One of the preeminent American painters of the twentieth century, Martin created subtle and evocative canvases that had a significant influence on artists of her time and subsequent generations. For more than four decades, she explored limited compositional motifs yet discovered endless nuance and variation. By 1960, she had developed her signature grid-pattern works—radical presentations of interlocking horizontal and vertical lines in pencil on large square canvases that at first seem to appear blank. Martin’s geometry, however, is never mechanical. Her hand-drawn arrangements of coordinates, lines, and stripes shift in scale and rhythm between works. Often associated with and considered an important figure of Minimalism, Martin’s work stands apart. Influenced by Asian belief systems including Taoism and Zen Buddhism and the natural surroundings of her home in New Mexico, her restrained style was underpinned by a personal conviction in the emotive and expressive power of art. The Guggenheim presentation of Agnes Martin is co-curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Senior Curator, Collections and Exhibitions and Tiffany Bell, Guest Curator. Venue name: Solomon R.
