If you haven't heard already, NYU Tisch, The Stonewall Inn, and American Opera Projects are presenting live performances of new, original operas inspired by the Stonewall Riots this weekend!
🎶
Four half-hour long mini-operas inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a watershed moment in LGBTQ civil rights, will have their world premiere at NYU’s Shubert Theatre on May 18, 2019 (open to NYU faculty/students/alumni only) and within the modern-day Stonewall Inn itself on May 19 and 20 (open to all!).The mini-opera performances are part of an extensive calendar of panels, performance, discussion, and exhibitions (including "Art after Stonewall"!) at NYU celebrating this momentous anniversary.
🎶
Some of the works are set on the night of the Stonewall uprising; others focus on Stonewall’s impact on societies as disparate as contemporary Ukraine and a post-apocalyptic 2418. You don’t want to miss this—find ticket information and more on our website at greyartgallery.nyu.edu/programs or at bit.ly/2vUmzN4

This year marks the 50-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots – and as we remember, we consider how the events of 28 June, 1969 continue to impact art. In 'Art After Stonewall: 1969–1989' organized by the Columbus Museum of Art and now open at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art and Grey Art Gallery, you can feel pride for the progress we’ve made (and focus on the work that remains).

Tune in to our award ceremony for the Fritz Ascher High School Competition, in which we asked High School students to respond with an artwork, essay or poem to the life and art of the German Expressionist Fritz Ascher (Berlin, 1893-1970). We were blown away by the deep and thoughtful responses, the creativity, and the high skill level of the work.

Not all participants saw original artwork by the German Expressionist Fritz Ascher in the retrospective that closed just last month at the Grey Art Gallery. Instead, they worked with educational material, downloadable for free from our website www.fritzaschersociety.org/learn, or with a German language program that was developed Goethe-Institut New York. Check it out! #FritzAscher #HSCompetition #WunderbarTogether

Congratulations to #ArtafterStonewall curator Jonathan Weinberg on the release of his new book, "Pier Groups: Art and Sex Along the New York Waterfront" coming out May 6 from Penn State University Press! The cover artwork, Shelley Seccombe's 'Sunbathing on the Edge' (1978) is on view at @leslielohmanmuseum as part of our collaborative exhibition "Art after Stonewall, 1969-1989."
•••
In 1970s New York City, the abandoned piers of the Hudson River became a site for extraordinary works of art and a popular place for nude sunbathing and anonymous sex. Weinberg’s provocative book—part art history, part memoir—weaves interviews, documentary photographs, literary texts, artworks, and film stills to show how avant-garde practices competed and mingled with queer identities along the Manhattan waterfront. Featuring one hundred exemplary works from the era and drawing from a rich variety of source material, interviews, and Weinberg’s personal experience, "Pier Groups" breaks new ground to look at the relationship of avant-garde art to resistant subcultures and radical sexuality.
•••
Check out the @psupress page for more information, and buy the book on Amazon or at your local retailer.

The Grey Art Gallery team is keeping busy indoors with the installation for “Art after Stonewall, 1969–1989.” We are closed to the public and resume regular hours on April 24, but make sure and join us on April 23, 6-8 pm for the opening reception! 🌈
With only a few weeks left before the opening, we wanted to remind everyone that there's still time to donate to our Art after Stonewall Exhibition Fund. We would be thrilled to get closer to our goal of $7,500. There are several great perks available to donors (pictured here)—so a donation means not only supporting the arts, but receiving a limited edition item! 🌈

This Friday and Saturday, April 5–6, @frickcollection and @nyuifa present their annual symposium on the history of art! The IFA/Frick Symposium was first held in 1940 in order for art history graduate students from six institutions to meet one another and compare their research and methods, and was the first symposium of its kind to be held in the U.S.

Since then, the symposium has expanded to include fifteen schools. The events to be held on April 5 and 6, at the IFA and The Frick Collection, respectively, represent an elite group of emerging scholars, selected by their institutions for their contributions to the field.

The Grey's very own Graduate Curatorial Assistant and PhD candidate at the IFA, J. English Cook @jenglishcook will present her paper “Red Film, Blue Prints: Soviet Cinema’s Architectural Imaginary” on Friday, April 5.

The symposium is free and open to the public. For Friday’s session at the IFA, R.S.V.P. to [email protected]. No reservations are necessary to attend Saturday’s session at the Frick.

Today, the entire New York University community is joining together in support of our students to secure 4,000 donations in 24 hours. You can support this effort by making a gift to any area of the University.
⭐️
There’s plenty of time left to support the Grey’s fundraiser for our upcoming exhibition #ArtafterStonewall —with YOUR help, we met our initial goal of $5,000 earlier this week!
⭐️
With a few weeks left in our campaign, we decided to raise our goal to $7,500. Our initial goal covers only part of the costs we incur from hosting our free public opening reception, putting on free public programs, designing and installing exhibition graphics and signage, and much more. Please consider giving (even just $5!) to the link in our bio or visit risingviolets.nyu.edu. A HUGE thanks to everyone who has already shown their support.

#Onthisday 49 years ago, the artist Fritz Ascher (Berlin, 1893-1970) died. His work is characterized by Expressionist and Symbolist sensitivity. In paintings, works on paper and poetry he explored existential questions and themes of contemporary social and cultural relevance, of spirituality and mythology. With expressive strokes and intense colors he created emotionally intense and authentic work.

If you are in New York, don't miss the first ever retrospective of his work, on view until April 6 at Grey Art Gallery. #Todayinhistory #mustvisit #FritzAscher #WeRemember #WunderbarTogether

General information

The Grey Art Gallery is located within New York University's Silver Center--on the site of NYU's original home, the legendary University Building (1835 to 1892). Winslow Homer, Daniel Huntington, Samuel Colt, George Innes, and Henry James all lived and worked there, as did Professor Samuel F. B. Morse, who established the first academic fine arts department in America on the site now occupied by the Grey Art Gallery. Demolished in 1892, the original building was replaced by the Main Building (renamed the Silver Center in 2002). Here was located, from 1927 to 1942, A. E. Gallatin's Museum of Living Art, NYU's first art museum and the first institution in this country to exhibit work by Picasso, Léger, Mirò, Mondrian, Arp and members of the American Abstract Artists group. Gallatin aspired to create a forum for intellectual exchange, a place where artists would congregate to acquaint themselves with the latest developments in contemporary art. In 1975, with a generous gift from Mrs. Abby Weed Grey, the Museum's original space was renovated, offices and a collection storage facility were added, and the doors were reopened as the Grey Art Gallery. Exhibitions organized by the Grey Art Gallery encompass aspects of all the visual arts: painting, sculpture, drawing and printmaking, photography, architecture and decorative arts, video, film, and performance. In addition to originating its own exhibitions, some of which travel throughout the United States and abroad, the Gallery hosts traveling exhibitions. Award-winning scholarly publications, distributed worldwide, are published by the Grey Art Gallery. In conjunction with its exhibitions, the Grey also sponsors public programs, including lectures, symposia, panel discussions, performances, and films.
