Museum Monday: This summer, the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, has mounted an exhibition of sculptures and installations by Maya Lin, entitled Platform: Maya Lin. Using technological methods to study and visualize the natural world, Lin takes macro and micro views of the Earth - via sonar resonance scans and aerial and satellite mapping devices - and translates that information into expressive sculptures, drawings, and sited installations. On view will be nine works ranging in media from marble to recycled silver, including three never before exhibited works: Accabonac Harbor, Georgica Pond, and Mecox Bay.
Throwback Thursday: Richard Tuttle installs his work in Rome, circa 1980s.
“Richard Tuttle: Looking for the Map,” the artist’s fourth solo exhibition at Pace Gallery, is on view from February 7th through March 15th at our 32 East 57th Street location.
Currently on view at the Secession in Vienna this summer is Robert Irwin's Double Blind . This “site-conditioned” work responds to the unique architectural features of the main gallery. As with many of Irwin’s installations, the piece engages with such themes as experience, illusion, and light. This is Irwin’s first solo show in Vienna and it is on view until September 1st, 2013.

Reblog of the day: The Ozymandias Parade is an opulent allegory of the abuse of political power, with a parade of figures and symbols representing elements of society. Whether the parade’s president shows a YES or a NO across his face is the result of a poll conducted in the weeks leading up to the installation’s opening, comprised of just one simple question: “Are you satisfied with your government?” To find out how our gallery visitors answered, come see this traveling exhibit for yourself at 510 West 25th Street.

Local Report 2012 by Robert Whitman
Presented by Creative Time and Eyebeam
Local Report 2012 is the latest version of a performance concept initiated by Robert Whitman in 1972 that involved “reporters” throughout New York City making calls over pay phones and submitting reports that were subsequently broadcast over a local radio station. Throughout the years, Whitman’s performances moved from pay phones to cell phones, and in 2005, to video cell phones. The newest incarnation of the project will be greatly expanded in scope to include “reporters” around the world and incorporate new Local Report software.
Performance: October 11, 2012, 7-8pm at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, 540 West 21st Street, New York, NY
The performance will be recorded and presented in a multichannel audio and video installation in Eyebeam’s Main Space October 12-20, 2012.
Supported in part by a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Responsive Grant.
At 510 West 25th Street, Pace presents Robert Irwin's iconic acrylic columns—the last works he conceived prior to abandoning his studio practice more than fifty years ago. Rising from the concrete floor and stretching more than fifteen feet towards the skylights above, the nearly transparent prisms warp the surrounding air and space. The columns are the completion and realization of an idea conceived in 1969. We hope you can visit these works for yourself, now on view until October 20th.

Reblog of the day! It’s not too late to get your tickets for tonight’s talk with Pace artist, Fred Wilson!
“I use beauty as a way of helping people to receive difficult or upsetting ideas. The topical issues are merely a vehicle for making one aware of one’s own perceptual shift—which is the real thrill.”
Artist Fred Wilson is our next guest - Public Art Fund Talks at The New School, March 28 @6:30pm
