Written in Paris in 1944, this collection of short pieces, "contemplations," on the figures present at the birth of Christ reflects the extraordinary times and an outpouring of gratitude by the composer. "Messiaen's mystical music invites out-of-body experiences. ... That was certainly the effect of Christopher Taylor's spellbinding performance of the work. ... He has found a way to make the piano sound as if it could levitate." –Los Angeles Times This concert is presented in front of the Museum's Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche in the Medieval Sculpture Hall. The exhibit of the crèche is made possible by gifts to The Christmas Tree Fund and the Loretta Hines Howard Fund.
An exhibition that features never seen before Maciunas pieces and illuminates a pivotal period in New York City and contemporary art's recent history A free event open to the public WHAT: Anything can substitute art: George Maciunas in SoHo, a singular exhibition that brings never seen before Maciunas pieces to the United States, sheds new light on a pivotal historic period for both the city of New York and contemporary art's recent history. By connecting the countercultural activism of the 1960’s and 1970’s to the moment of Fluxus, an international network of artists, composers and designers noted for blending different artistic media and disciplines in the 1960s, the exhibition features over 170 objects, documents, ephemera, personal items, and films. These works were created by a variety of Fluxus artists, specifically focusing on the Fluxus founder and self-appointed "chairman," George Maciunas (1931-1978, graduated from The Cooper Union in 1952). The exhibition will include rarely exhibited early work by Maciunas, such as his self-portraits, as well as the entire Atlas of Russian History (1953), along with Fluxus manifestos, charts, interviews, and Maciunas’ plans for artist housing in SoHo. Anything can substitute art: George Maciunas in SoHo was created in collaboration with The Jonas Mekas Visual Arts Center, Vilnius, Lithuania, and The School of Art at The Cooper Union.
