Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America. Sanctuary reflects on the plight of working-class black people before and during the Civil Rights Movement, and their determination to pursue the same American Dream afforded to others.

Exhibition: Surface/Depth -The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro

Museum of Art and Design

2 Columbus Circle
New York, NY 10019

Phone: (212) 299-7777

Price

General: $16.00; Seniors; $14.00; Students $12.00

When

10:00am - 6:00pm

This Exhibition features 29 works by Miriam Schapiro and 39 works by contemporary artists including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian. In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro’s signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women’s domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. This exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women’s work.

Greenmarket's gateway to the Upper West Side, the Richard Tucker Park Greenmarket, offers locally grown produce just across the street from Lincoln Center.

Knowledgeable growers are at market to explain just how to care for their plants, flowers, and herb pots indoors and out. Impeccable farmstead cheeses, fresh seafood, grass fed beef, duck and duck charcuterie, eggs, artisanal baked goods, and New York’s only producer of both sorghum and maple syrup round out the offerings.
