NYU FAS Event: Saturday 11/19
Agnes Martin Retrospective
at the Guggenheim Museum

Meet in the lobby of the Guggenheim Museum at 12pm(noon)

From the Guggenheim Museum: “For more than forty years, Agnes Martin (1912–2004) created serene paintings composed of grids and stripes. With an attention to the subtleties of line, surface, tone, and proportion, she varied these forms to generate a body of work impressive both in its intricacy and focus. Martin’s commitment to this spare style was informed by a belief in the transformative power of art, in its ability to conjure what she termed “abstract emotions”—happiness, love, and experiences of innocence, freedom, beauty, and perfection. This retrospective, her first comprehensive survey in over two decades, presents the scope of Martin’s output, including her biomorphic abstractions of the 1950s, signature gridand stripe compositions, and final paintings. Together these works trace Martin’s practice as she developed and refined a format to express her singular vision.”

NYU FAS Event: Sunday 11/20

at the New Museum

Join Fine Arts Society to see the New Museum’s survey of the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist’s exhibition of video art and multimedia installations.
Meet in the lobby of the New Museum and bring your NYU ID
From the New Museum: “Over the past thirty years, (Pipilotti) Rist (b. 1962) has achieved international renown as a pioneer of video art and multimedia installations. Her mesmerizing works envelop viewers in sensual, vibrantly colored kaleidoscopic projections that fuse the natural world with the technological sublime. Referring to her art as a “glorification of the wonder of evolution,” Rist maintains a deep sense of curiosity that pervades her explorations of physical and psychological experiences. Her works bring viewers into unexpected, all-consuming encounters with the textures, forms, and functions of the living universe around us.
