Lonesome George to be on Display at the American Museum of Natural History

Presented by American Museum of Natural History


A native of the Galapagos Islands and the last of his species, the Pinta Island tortoise known as Lonesome George became an international symbol of ever-increasing extinctions. When he died of natural causes in 2012, more than 40 years after being discovered on Pinta Island, the Museum worked with the Galapagos National Park Service, State University of New York College of Environmental Services and Forestry, the Galapagos Conservancy, and a team of master taxidermists to preserve Lonesome George for future generations. Before the tortoise is returned to Ecuador, he will be on exhibit here at the Museum for a limited time. Lonesome George is presented in collaboration with the Galapagos National Park Directorate and Galapagos Conservancy

"Someone Else" (U.S. Premiere)

Presented by Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art


Abel Azcona uses his body to illustrate personal experiences of abandonment, pain, and empathy. In Someone Else he shows us interpersonal relations, both sentimental and sexual, in which in a parallel way, true feelings, true love, or the true object of desire are all hidden. The artist shares different intimacies with different people, making the antagonist-guest the protagonist. He presents dreams that become true in the mind, but never in the actual body. Abel Azcona is a Spanish interdisciplinary and performance artist. He creates cathartic works as a means of self-knowledge and personal construction. Azcona’s artwork has been presented in various museums, contemporary art centers, and galleries worldwide. Synergistically autobiographical and critical, his work takes audiences into his inner world and invites them to share their own experiences. His themes are directly informed by his experiences as the child of a prostitute, and his passing through multiple children’s shelters, mental institutions, and foster homes, as well as adolescent episodes of drug use, prostitution, and several suicide attempts. The resilient artist assures the public that when he practices self-harm, it is his own choice to alter the shape of his body, as opposed to an abused child or woman who has no choice.

Memory Prints: The Story World of Phillip Chen

Presented by The Museum of Chinese in America


Memory Prints is a solo exhibition by Phillip Chen, a visual artist from the Midwest. In fifteen relief etchings about his family, Chen reckons with significant moments in Chinese American history. At first glance, individually and as an ensemble, these relief prints are schematic and enigmatic. Rooted in personal experiences, the prints depict precisely drawn tools and everyday objects that reflect his family’s occupational histories. The etchings can be approached as part futurist blueprints and part archaeologic shards, each juxtaposed in an almost Rube Goldberg set of relationships and movements. Their rich darkness reveal precisely drawn tools and everyday objects, an occasional human visage. Each array on each print is imaginatively filled in with lines that interlink and interrelate the items.

American Museum of Natural History Presents: Exploring the Museum Archives: New York Archives Week

Presented by American Museum of Natural History


In honor of New York Archives Week, discover the Museum Library’s rich history of scientific exploration from around the world. Rarely seen collections of field notes, films, photography, artwork, and memorabilia will be on display to tell the hidden stories behind the Museum’s world-famous dioramas and exhibitions. Watch early moving-image footage from historic Central Asiatic Expeditions to Mongolia, in which a team led by Roy Chapman Andrews discovers the first dinosaur eggs, or browse the original landscape studies painted in the field during Carl Akeley’s perilous expeditions to Africa. The Library staff will explain how these one-of-a kind objects are cared for and give hands- on demonstrations of the new Digital Special Collections, an online endeavor to make the Library’s extensive image collection available for research and reference. This event is part of the New York Archives Week, which runs October 6–12, 2014, an annual celebration aimed at informing the general public about the diverse array of archival materials available in the metropolitan New York region. Free for Members or with Museum admission
