ARTISTS ON ART - TONIGHT!
At 6:15 p.m. here at the Rubin Museum, Assistant Curator Beth Citron will lead an informal conversation with artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders about her artistic process and how landscape is incorporated into her work.
Radical Terrain, the third exhibition in the series Modernist Art from India, highlights the exploration of landscape in Indian art for the generation after independence. The exhibition will also feature new work by international contemporary artists of diverse backgrounds currently working in and identifying with landscape. This is both a response to the modernist paintings on view and to work towards a nuanced conceptual understanding of what “landscape” in art is.
Radical Terrain is currently on view now at the Rubin Museum of Art, in New York, through April 2013.

Melissa Ferrick: Sold Out!
Friday August 24, 2012
“Melissa Ferrick is tireless (she seems to live on the road) and she often applies that energy to songs so bombastic that she makes Melissa Etheridge sound positively kittenish. Given half the chance, Ferrick will strum the night away, much to the joy of her worshipful fans.” - Time Out New York

This August our film series “Women and Their Cameras” will screen exactly that: women shooting snapshots in these unforgettable movies. This series complements the art exhibition “Candid” about India’s first female photojournalist Homai Vyarawalla and the legacy of her career. Each film will be introduced by renowned New York-based photographers who just happen to have XX chromosomes. Whether the characters are inventive auteurs or enthusiastic shutterbugs, these ladies capture their stories. On film, offbeat.
Watch the series trailer above!
