  2. Curating The Whitney Biennial 

    In a few days, the 2014 Whitney Biennial, the last to take place in the Whitney Museum’s Marcel Breuer-designed building on Madison Avenue, will open. With 103 artists brought together by three curators working virtually independently of one another, this year’s Biennial is really a three-in-one. 

    We spoke to two of the curators about the unique challenges and thrills of curating the Biennial.

    Presented by Bottega Veneta

  9. Hugo Boss Prize

    The six finalist for the prestigious Hugo Boss Prize have been named. Contending for the $100,000 award which also includes an exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York are Steve Mcqueen, Paul Chan, Sheela Gowda, Camille Henrot, Hassan Khan, and Charline von Heyl.

    Established in 1996, the prize is given every two years to an artist making significant contributions in contemporary art and has distinguished itself because it has no restrictions on age or nationality. Despite the male-dominated realm of contemporary artists, half of the 2014 finalists are women. 

    The winner will be announced next fall and the show is scheduled for spring 2015.

  11. Renaissance For Women

    During the Italian Renaissance, women were born to be married off, usually in order to strengthen familial ties. Once married, a woman was then expected to bear as many children as she could. 

    However, more female painters existed during the Renaissance than is immediately apparent, and more and more of their incredible stories are being unveiled and recounted.

  14. NY Academy of Art

    This September, the New York Academy of Art is showing an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by their 2013 Academy Fellows Jonathan Beer, Aleah Chapin, and Nicolas Holiber. 

    Annually, the Academy awards three exemplary graduating students a post graduate fellowship through a highly competitive selection process. Current Fellow Aleah Chapin was first prize winner of the National Portrait Galley’s BP Portrait Award in 2012, the second American to win the prestigious prize. Previous fellowship recipients include: Ali Banisadr, Fellow 2009, Amy Bennett, Fellow 2003, and Will Kurtz

    On view through Sept 29, 2013, the show presents a powerful case for deeply-informed, conceptually based figurative art.
