the carsten höller experience: new york

photo by: Mesaj What: Carsten Höller: Experience
When: now thru January 22, 2012
Where: New Museum

Experiencing art is an individual, emotional experience—different for every one and perhaps never quite the same for a revisiting viewer.

The Carsten Höller: Experience exhibit at the New Museum brings new meaning to this idea as it toys with and challenges engrained perceptions of the outside world.

Drawing on inspiration from scientific experiments—and through amusement parks or playgrounds—he attempts to manipulate viewer’s physical and psychological sensations creating uncertainty and doubt.

design with the other 90% exhibit: new york

photo by: edwin.11What: Design with the Other 90%: CITIES
When: now through January 9, 2012
Where: The United Nations

The Cooper-Hewitt’s first installment of this exhibit debuted in 2007—the groundbreaking Design for the Other 90%—and continues to focus on the world’s population outside metropolitan areas, often not the beneficiaries of trained designers or urban planners.

Most recently, and for the first time, the population balance has shifted putting the majority in urban environments. This rapid urban growth is beginning with informal settlements, or slums, and currently about
1 billion people live in them—in the next
20 years, that population is expected to double.

In this second installment of the exhibit, CITIES features 60 projects, proposals and solutions focused on this projected growth and its demands. Exploring everything from urban planning, affordable housing and education, to migration, sanitation and public health—no issue is insignificant when multiplied by the millions it will affect.

As part of this exhibit, these invaluable conversations will continue through an online database which will enable communities to design solutions with the guidance, experience, and/or advice of others who have been through or face similar challenges.

talk to me exhibit: new york

photo by: ElAlispruz What: Talk to Me: Design and the Communication between People and Objects
When: now thru November 7, 2011
Where: MoMA

Communication is what this exhibition is all about so Talk to Me features a vast array of objects and concepts we interact with—from furniture and physical products, devices and tools, computer and machine interfaces, websites and video games to installations and environments that create emotional reactions.

Many of these objects are gateways or interpreters allowing us to expand our world beyond the here and now. To see ideas that were inspired by the exhibit, check out beyond the galleries at moma.org.

bob dylan's asia series: new york

photo by: jewell willett What: Bob Dylan, The Asia Series
When: now thru October 22
Where: Gagosian Gallery, Madison Avenue

Singer, songwriter, folk icon—visual artist. Since the 60s, Bob Dylan has influenced popular culture with his provocative lyrics, earthy demeanor and a blend of folk and rock that is uniquely Dylan.

And while he’s been creating visual artworks all along, it’s only been within the past few years that small exhibits have shared his works publicly—catch it while you can!
