Last week, The Bare Square recommended some must-see exhibitions at Manhattan’s finest museums.
This week, we share with you more of our favorite exhibit picks, located throughout the remarkable museums of the outer boroughs!
Now, through August 12th, Brooklyn Museum’s Rachel Kneebone: Regarding Rodin showcases fifteen works by French sculptor Auguste Rodin and eight porcelain sculptures by British artist Rachel Kneebone. As Kneebone’s first major museum presentation, she features her own figurative sculptures as well as those of her inspiration, Rodin, to represent the artists’ shared interest in expressing themes of mourning, ecstasy, death, and vitality.
The Queens Museum of Art’s current exhibit Caribbean: Crossroads of the World features over two centuries of rarely-seen art from the Haitian Revolution to the present. The exhibition includes more than 400 works, ranging from paintings to films, and explores the relationships between the Caribbean, Europe, and North America.
Head over to MoMa PS1 in Long Island City to check out Max Brand: no solid footing – (trained) duck fighting a crow through September 30th. The exhibition features German artist Max Brand’s wonderfully whimsical creations, bursting with color and energy. Brand’s artwork consists of a wide variety of media including spray paint, chlorine bleach, crayon, and oil and acrylic paints.
Be sure to stop by these incredible exhibitions before the summer ends and let us know which one you like best on The Bare Square’s Facebok page!
