Salon Series: (Black) Sexuality and Space | May 17, recommended by Amelia Taylor-Hochberg
Take a front seat to an intimate, informal conversation around blackness, sexuality and gender as they relate to architecture. Part of Storefront's salon series, this event puts architect Mario Gooden and architecture educators Mabel Wilson and Meredith TenHoor in discussion, questioning how race and gender might be addressed through architecture.
We Built This City: New York City | May 19, recommended by Nicholas Korody
This should be a fun event for history buffs: a panel documenting this development of New York from historic to contemporary times. It's organized by the Irish Architecture Fund, so unsurprisingly focuses on the contribution of Irish-Americans. There's also a screening of a short film. ‘Erin go Bragh,’ as they say.
The Illusive Eye | Open now until May 21, recommended by Alexander Walter
Aficionados of Kinetic and Op art – this one is for you: El Museo del Barrio presents The Illusive Eye as a direct response to MoMA's iconic 1965 exhibition The Responsive Eye but makes clear that it will "flesh it out with the Latin American dimension that it lacked." If you're intrigued, hurry though – after being on display since February, the show will end on Saturday, May 21.
In Time (The Rhythm of the Workshop) | Open now until May 22, recommended by Justine Testado
Experience a new perspective on the complex “melody” of industrial manufacturing in this exhibition, which closes on May 22 at the Museum of Arts and Design. “In Time” showcases three films by Denis Côté (Montreal), Daniel Eisenberg (Chicago) and Andreas Bunte (Berlin) that depict the intricate choreography of fabrication, energy, labor, and unexpected crossovers that allows the material to become immaterial.
Vito Acconci: Where We Are Now (Who Are We Anyway?), 1976 | Open May 29 until August 31, recommended by Paul Petrunia
MoMA PS1 will be featuring the early work of modern-day renaissance man Vito Acconci. The exhibition, which is part of the museum’s 40th anniversary celebration, will consist of documentary materials, photos, and film/video footage.
