The Woman Question: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka

New York, NY 10019

March 14, 2017 - June 30, 2017
Around the turn of the 20th century, the traditional relationship between the sexes was challenged by a series of sweeping social, economic and philosophical changes. Vienna became ground zero for the exploration of human sexuality, a subject that gripped psychologists, scientists and writers, along with the public at large. This more forthright acknowledgment of male and female sexual desire sent thrills and chills through the Austrian art world, infusing the work of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka with a mix of terror and exhilaration. Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka each approached what was then commonly known as the “woman question” in slightly different, albeit overlapping, ways. Our current exhibition explores these differences and similarities, in the process providing new insights into early 20th-century gender relations and the origins of modern sexual identity. Based on a highly successful 2015-16 exhibition at Vienna’s Belvedere Museum, “THE WOMAN QUESTION” comprises 59 paintings, watercolors and drawings. Gustav Klimt, "Moving Water," 1898, oil on canvas. Private collection.

You Say You Want a Revolution: American Artists and the Communist Party
24 West 57th Street
New York, NY 10019

October 17, 2016 - February 11, 2017
YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION explores the work of the many artists who were caught up in the ideological fervor of the 1930s and ‘40s. Some—including Philip Evergood, Hugo Gellert, William Gropper, Jack Levine, Louis Lozowick and Ben Shahn—are well known for political subject matter. But the contributions of Stuart Davis and Alice Neel—both of whom had close ties to the Communist Party—may come as a surprise. The exhibition follows its subject into the Cold War era, when the most radical artists were blacklisted or simply shut out of the mainstream art world. For postwar artists such as Leonard Baskin and Sue Coe, illustration and publication became outlets for political content that was no longer permissible in the “high” art arena. Philip Evergood, "Renunciation," 1946, oil. Private collection.
