    Magazines and the American Experience

    Magazines and the American Experience

    Grolier Club

    Manhattan

    Wed, Jan 20, 2021 - Sat, Apr 24, 2021

    This exhibition is a study of how magazines have both driven and reflected the American experience. Unlike regional newspapers, that report local current events, or non-fiction books, which focus on major historical moments and personalities, national magazines have the unique ability to connect trans-local communities of like-minded individuals. In the colonial era, magazines were the harbingers of American thought and identity; the first successful magazine from the 18th century proudly proclaimed itself as "The American ...

During this period, the modern notion of changing fashion was reborn. Because few actual garments from the Middle Ages survive, we use the art of this era — illuminated manuscripts and early printed books — to reveal its evolving styles. Concentrating on France and ...

    “From a Passing Shape”: Modernist Works on Paper

    Rosenberg & Co.

    Manhattan

    Mon, Jan 11, 2021 - Sat, Feb 27, 2021

    Artists have long relied on paper as a fundamental support material. Paper is easily accessible and arguably the most familiar and humble medium. These qualities have led artists to use paper in a variety of ways, from the rough translation of ideas to the exploration of nontraditional processes. Artists have continued, and will continue, to reinvestigate and redeploy this everyday medium. The exhibition takes its title from the words of Pablo Picasso. He wrote, “The artist ...
