Late Night Space Force features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon’s presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon’s presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner’s investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art’s 50th anniversary year, YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist’s landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic work devoted to healing human connections and exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than six decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, REMEMBERING THE FUTURE traces Ono’s experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

Named after Yoko Ono’s 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to “Listen to the sound of the earth turning,” this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as “just another material,” clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state’s vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez’s objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art’s sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo– dominated East: whether we see “art” or “craft,” local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson’s collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum’s collecting priorities, from the Museum’s earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

In celebration of the Everson’s 50th anniversary, the Museum commissioned Elliott Katz to create site-specific installations for the spaces that architect I.M. Pei designed as planters. Katz was selected for the commission because of how his work engages with the significance of materials and questions how we form relationships to those materials, as well as his interest in contrasting the Modernist belief in controlling nature against the Wabi sabi belief in the fundamental uncontrollability of nature. Using natural and synthetic materials, photography, scale, and illusion, Katz’s serious and playful installations transform familiar objects into curious mysteries that defy simple categorization and ignite our imagination.

Artist and theorist Suzanne Anker positions her work at the intersection of art and biology using a wide range of media, from genetically modified plants, digital sculpture, and installation to large-scale photography and projected video. 1.5° Celsius references the projected increase in temperature between 2030 and 2052 if global warming continues at its current pace and the world fails to take significant action to reverse the increase, according to a United Nations report published on October 7, 2018. This subtle yet substantial change in temperature will have seismic implications for climate change, species extinction, and toxic degradation. Anker’s investigations into these issues encourage critical and enlightened thinking about the ways humans have altered nature in the past and will be required to alter nature in the twenty-first century.

On View February 9 – April 21, 2019
The work of pioneering video artist Frank Gillette focuses on humans’ experience of natural phenomena. Using multi-channel video installations with image feedback, time delay, and closed-circuit systems, Gillette is of a generation of artists who defined the way video technologies would be used as an art form. Gillette has become increasingly fascinated with the potential of digital media to subvert our obsession with speed, and creates work that embraces a Zen-inspired experience of slow time. Creating multi-channel installations that are always shifting, contain no beginning or end, and juxtapose traditional modes of art making (such as still life, landscape, and symbolic interaction,) Gillette continues to deepen a career-long investigation into the intersections of technology, ecology, and cognition.

Realism and abstraction are the two poles of painting in the 20th century. Drawn from the Everson’s collection, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of abstract works from the 20th century to explore the wide variety of formal and compositional decisions artists make when depicting simplified forms, reductive shapes, gestural or precise lines, and selecting a color palette. Primarily comprised of paintings, a selection of sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, video, ceramics, and decorative arts objects are included to draw connections among the various media and approaches to both two and three-dimensional objects.

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50 commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei’s landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei’s radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never before seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson’s collection, Art Within Art examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei’s building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.

I.M. Pei believed that “Architecture is the very mirror of life.” By this, he meant that a society’s architecture reflects its history, spirit, and values. With roots in function and culture, the same can also be said of ceramics. This exhibition uses work from the permanent collection to explore the harmony between art and architecture in Pei’s building over the past half century.

The Everson Biennial has been an important platform for contemporary art by New York State artists since its inception in 1974, offering an outlet for creative visual expression and facilitating lively conversations about both what contemporary art is and what it has the power to become. Kindred Beasts continues this tradition by presenting a carefully selected group of eight artists whose work focuses on the use of fiber and clay. Each artist interprets the medium in unique and innovative ways, while remaining deeply engaged with tradition and respectful of the past. Representing six counties across the state, the artists are: Joe Fyfe, Jeffrey Gibson, Sarah Hewitt, Liz Lurie, Matt Nolen, Sarah Saulson, Bobby Silverman and Linda Sormin.

For over a decade, Marie Lorenz has been exploring and documenting the waterways of New York City in boats she designs and builds as part of her ongoing project Tide and Current Taxi. On July 1, Lorenz extends the project, ambitiously traveling from Buffalo (with a launch at the Albright Knox Gallery) to Albany along the historic Erie Canal and onto New York City via the Hudson River (arriving at the High Line). Accompanied by a series of passengers with particular perspectives on the waterway, Lorenz will make stops and presentations at historic sites, museums, and other canal corridor locations. The project will culminate with a multi-media exhibition and series of programs at the Everson in the fall, bringing together newly-created objects as well as research, documentation, and materials from the voyage. This project is commissioned by the Everson, with support from CNY Arts, NYSCA, etc. Project partners include the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and Erie Canal Corp., Albright Knox Gallery, Memorial Art Gallery, Erie Canal Museum and Sculpture Space.

In 1965 the Museum of Modern Art opened The Responsive Eye, a landmark exhibition which featured works by 100 modern artists who used abstract forms to examine how different shapes, patterns and colors could affect the eye of a viewer. Often called “Op Art” due to their relationships to the study of optics and optical illusions, these works appear to move, shimmer, or vibrate despite the fact that they are stationary. This exhibition revisits the work of four of the artists included in the seminal survey: Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Frank Stella and Victor Vasarely, as well as their Latin contemporary Jesús Rafael Soto.

Image Caption: Helen Levitt, New York (Children with Broken Mirror), c. 1940, gelatin silver print on paper, 11 1/16 x 7 ½ inches. Telfair Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia. Gift of Mrs. Robert O. Levitt. (c) Film Documents LLC.

February 6 - May 8, 2016
Presented by M+T Bank For more than seventy years, Helen Levitt used her camera to capture fresh and unstudied views of everyday life in the streets of New York City. Levitt’s photographs, in both black and white and color, document neighborhood matriarchs on their front stoops, pedestrians negotiating New York’s busy sidewalks, and boisterous children at play. In her work, Levitt successfully captures people of every age, race and class, without attempting to impose social commentary. The exhibition features a range of photographs spanning Levitt’s long career, and includes scenes shot in New York City, New Hampshire and Mexico. Helen Levitt: In the Streetis organized by Telfair Museums, Savannah, Georgia. This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Mrs. Robert O. Levitt.

Opening April 2020
AbStranded brings together a focused group of contemporary American artists who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large—through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more—and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today’s digital society. Together, the works on view reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Showing/Making is fast-paced multimedia lecture about contemporary artists in the field of ceramics who use video and performance as an extension of their studio practice. Ever since Japanese Gutai artist Kazuo Shiraga wrestled several tons of clay in his 1955 work Challenging Mud, artists have grasped both the visceral and metaphorical qualities of clay. A new generation of artists has embraced performance art and the video camera as tools that go beyond mere documentation to allow them to show the use (or perhaps just as often, abuse) of clay.

Free with Museum admission

The Everson Museum is marking a year-long celebration for the 50th anniversary of its I. M. Pei-designed home – an architectural masterpiece which opened in 1968. The history of how the museum evolved, physically, from borrowed space in a downtown office building in 1897 to its landmark tour de force is a fascinating story. It is one woven through local history touching on a James Street family fortune, controversies of post-World War II civic renewal, and the vision of dedicated patrons. Local historian Dennis Connors will explore that legacy in an illustrated lecture covering that 70-year passage which eventually created the Everson Museum edifice that we treasure today.

Seeking Agency in the City

​It is well understood that the 21st century will be an urban era. With this transformation, the contemporary city also faces seemingly insurmountable challenges in the coming years: environmental, social, political and economic. By examining historic case studies of urban transformations, as well as work from his own practice, Jeffrey Kruth suggests that the architect and urbanist's disciplinary toolkit is both well-suited to investigate these contemporary challenges, while also pointing out the broader disciplinary frameworks that might further foster agency in the city.

In conjunction with Adam Milner: Late Night Space Force and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, join us for a talk at the intersection of art and science with scientists from the Carl Sagan Institute Cornell University. Just one year after the first photograph of humans was taken, the first image of the Moon was captured. It seems our desire to capture the world around us did not take long to turn to the sky. Now, robotic spacecraft carrying state-of-the art cameras send back images of newly explored worlds from billions of miles away, but our fascination with our nearest neighbor in the vastness of space has only grown. We still strive to capture its serene beauty, and even in the pure pursuit of science we cannot help but create art.

The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art’s 50th anniversary year, YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist’s landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic work devoted to healing human connections and exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than six decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, REMEMBERING THE FUTURE traces Ono’s experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.

Named after Yoko Ono’s 1963 Earth Piece, a score that invites the reader to “Listen to the sound of the earth turning,” this exhibition examines artists who have combined clay and ceramics with performance art, photography, conceptual art, and even land art. Far from being used as “just another material,” clay comes freighted with millennia of associations with material culture. Earth Piece highlights the work of well-known figures from the art world, as well as lesser-known artists whose work shaped the field of ceramics into a vibrant discipline that is equally at home in both domestic and contemporary spheres.

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson’s collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum’s collecting priorities, from the Museum’s earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

The youngest of eight children, Eddie Dominguez grew up in Tucumcari, New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Amarillo on historic Route 66. He came to national prominence in the mid–1980s for highly stylized dinnerware sets that also stack into sculptural forms. In his work, Dominguez frequently references his home state’s vegetation, landforms, weather, and Hispano–Catholic culture. The dual nature of Dominguez’s objects, which inhabit the gray area between utility and art for art’s sake, reflects his personal experience as a New Mexican who studied ceramics in the Anglo– dominated East: whether we see “art” or “craft,” local Hispano or melting pot American depends completely on the immediate context.

Now on view
In celebration of the Everson’s 50th anniversary, the Museum commissioned Elliott Katz to create site-specific installations for the spaces that architect I.M. Pei designed as planters. Katz was selected for the commission because of how his work engages with the significance of materials and questions how we form relationships to those materials, as well as his interest in contrasting the Modernist belief in controlling nature against the Wabi sabi belief in the fundamental uncontrollability of nature. Using natural and synthetic materials, photography, scale, and illusion, Katz’s serious and playful installations transform familiar objects into curious mysteries that defy simple categorization and ignite our imagination.

AbStranded brings together a focused group of contemporary American artists who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large—through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more—and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today’s digital society. Together, the works on view reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.
