Seurat’s Circus Sideshow

Feb 17–May 29, 2017 Galleries 964–965, Robert Lehman Wing Seurat’s evocative nighttime scene of circus performers, painted in 1887–88, takes center stage in a thematic exhibition that offers a unique context for appreciating its heritage and allure. Anchored by a core group of related works by Seurat, the presentation features paintings, drawings, and prints that trace the fascination the sideshow subject held for artists ranging from Daumier in the mid-19th century to the young Picasso at the fin de siècle. Made possible by the Janice H. Levin Fund, the Gail and Parker Gilbert Fund, and an Anonymous Foundation. Education programs made possible by The Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust.

Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall Rei Kawakubo’s fascination with the space between boundaries comes into focus in this monographic exhibition featuring examples of Kawakubo’s womenswear designs for Comme des Garçons, dating from her first Paris runway show in 1981 to her most recent collection. Existing within and between entities—self/other, object/subject, fashion/anti-fashion—her work challenges our conventional notions of beauty, good taste, and fashionability.

Inside Look

Irving Penn— A True Master One of the most celebrated American artists of the 20th century, Irving Penn (1917–2009) is famous the world over for his remarkably diverse body of photographs. In a career that spanned 70 years, Penn produced insightful portraiture, astonishing still-lifes, superb nude studies, and innovative and influential work in the field of fashion. In the foreword to the catalogue accompanying this spring’s Irving Penn: Centennial, Director Thomas P. Campbell writes, “Penn was a photographer of uncommon virtuosity and grace who lived long enough to see and participate in retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1984), and the Art Institute of Chicago (1997). The Met’s first solo show of Penn was in 1977, Irving Penn: Street Material. Photographs in Platinum Metals, 1975–1976. It was followed 25 years later by Earthly Bodies: Irving Penn’s Nudes, 1949–50, the acclaimed 2002 show featuring a group of nude figure studies donated to The Met by the artist. With the full commitment of The Irving Penn Foundation, The Met is now honored to present this touring exhibition to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth, the first Penn retrospective in decades to travel internationally.” What’s On  Spring 2017

The Met acquired its first photographs by Penn in 1959 and subsequently built a notable collection of important photographs by the artist, primarily from two major acquisitions: a selection of the 66 nude studies from 1949–50 that were featured in Earthly Bodies, and a group of 64 portraits from the landmark 1950–51 Small Trades series of workers in Paris, London, and New York acquired by the Museum in 2014 with the support of Leonard Lauder and The Irving Penn Foundation. metmuseum.org

Inside Look

The majority of the photographs featured in this spring’s exhibition are drawn from a recent promised gift to the Museum from The Irving Penn Foundation of 187 of the artist’s finest works. Jeff L. Rosenheim, Joyce Frank Menschel Curator in Charge, Department of Photographs, and Maria Morris Hambourg, a former colleague at The Met who founded the department in 1992, selected the photographs during an intensive, year-long survey of the Foundation’s vast holdings. The more than 200 photographs on view represent all of the genres in which Penn worked and include iconic fashion studies of Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, the artist’s wife; exquisite still-lifes; portraits of urban laborers; female nudes; tribesmen in New Guinea; and color flower studies.

beloved portraits of cultural figures such as Truman Capote, Picasso, Colette, Ingmar Bergman, and Issey Miyake are also featured. Rounding out the exhibition are photographs by Penn that entered The Met collection prior to the promised gift. The Penn Foundation’s current gift dramatically enlarges the Museum’s holdings of the artist’s work and is a stunning reminder of what is great about the medium of photography. “Simply put,” writes Director Campbell, “it reveals how a true master who knew what he wanted from his art could use a camera and photographic materials to transform his world into a better, more interesting, and more beautiful place.” Made possible by the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Enterprise Holdings Endowment, and The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation.

Marsden Hartley’s Maine Mar 15–Jun 18, 2017 Floor 3 Marsden Hartley's Maine explores the painter’s complex and visually arresting relationship with his native state—from the lush Post-Impressionist inland landscapes with which he launched his career to the later roughly rendered paintings of Maine's rugged coastal terrain and its hardy inhabitants. The exhibition illuminates Maine as a lifelong source of inspiration intertwined with Hartley’s personal history, cultural milieu, and desire to create a regional expression of American modernism.

The Met Breuer

Lygia Pape: A Multitude of Forms Mar 21–Jul 23, 2017 Floor 4 Artist Lygia Pape (1927–2004) was a pivotal figure in Brazilian modern art whose singular approach—combining geometric abstraction with notions of body, time, and space—radically transformed the nature of the art object in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Her art comes into glorious view in this first retrospective exhibition in the United States devoted to her work. The show examines Pape’s prolific career and extraordinarily rich oeuvre in varied media, including sculpture, prints, painting, installation, performance, and film.
