The Denver Art Museum (DAM) announced today that it will have a major exhibition about female Abstract Expressionists in summer 2016. Titled “Women of Abstract Expressionism,” the show will feature more than 50 works by 12 artists. Following its run at the DAM, the show will travel to the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Palm Springs Art Museum in California.

Abstract Expressionism has long been defined by its male adherents—including Jackson Pollock, Clyfford Still, Franz Kline, and Barnett Newman, among others—whose fame greatly exceeds the women in the movement.

For two consecutive days this summer, I indulged in “The Seven Deadly Sins.” Not the sins, per se, but a seven-venue collaboration (think: exhibition as pub crawl) spread throughout Connecticut and New York, involving seven members of the Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance.

The FWMA’s inaugural group effort, “The Seven Deadly Sins” had each arts institution tackle one unique sin, and it ran the gamut in terms of approach, originality, quality and success. Representing about 90 artists, mostly household names, “Sins” comprised roughly 200 works from the 15th to the 21st century, in nearly every medium.

When it comes to Hungarian-born American artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946), the only thing more difficult than pronouncing his name is grasping the significance of his art.

Partly that's because his artistic ideas often outstripped his ability to fully manifest them in his work. Theory regularly trumped practice.

At the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, a modest exhibition attempts to come to terms with one part of the artist's eclectic output. It's only partly successful.

Bay Area artist Richard Diebenkorn kept sketchbooks for his entire career; they served as a sort of nomadic studio where he experimented with visuals that bridged figurative and abstract ideas. Recently the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University acquired 29 of Diebenkorn’s sketchbooks, and this September they’re going on view to the public for the first time in Richard Diebenkorn: The Sketchbooks Revealed.

“The books are filled with stunningly gestural sketches of bits and pieces of daily life, both mundane capturing of everyday things, and powerful vignettes of intimate family moments,” Alison Gass, the Cantor’s associate director for collections, exhibitions, and curatorial affairs, told Hyperallergic.

This autumn Tate Liverpool will present one of the most iconic works ever made by Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954), The Snail 1953. On display for the first time in the gallery’s history, Tate Liverpool is the first and only UK venue outside London to exhibit this masterpiece.

At almost three meters square, The Snail is one of Matisse’s largest and most significant paper cut-out works.

In 1913, Edward Hopper—then 30 years old—sold his first painting ever at the inaugural Armory Show in New York to Thomas F. Vietor, a merchant from New Jersey. The piece, titled Sailing, is now in the permanent collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art, along with 16 other Hopper paintings, drawings, and etchings.

For the first time, the Pittsburgh museum is displaying its Hopper collection in its entirety as part of the new exhibition “CMOA Collects Edward Hopper.”

Other than causing traffic jams in September, when world leaders descend on the General Assembly, it’s hard to say what impact the United Nations has on the heartbeat of New York City.

I suppose it helps bolster our claim as a cosmopolitan metropolis—indeed as the capital of the world—but the average New Yorker already knew that.

The fact that I can’t remember the last time I visited—it may have been in high school—suggests that its role in the life of the city is less than integral.
