Museum of Arts and Design

Craft was once at the margins of the art world, but no longer. Today it is front and center in art galleries, museums, and fairs, widely recognized for its expressive potential and cultural significance. Assembled from the eclectic richness of MAD’s permanent collection, Craft Front & Center brings together more than 70 iconic and lesser-known works to highlight key thematic touchpoints in craft’s history that have brought us to this moment. Challenging traditional thinking of craft as separate from fine art, the exhibition reveals the field's deep engagement in art’s major movements, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Postmodernism, while also launching its own revolutions, particularly the elevation of women and people of color as significant artists.

The Museum of Arts and Design collection comprises over 3,000 artworks in clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood, dating from the post-war studio craft movement through to contemporary art and design. With an aim to subvert traditional hierarchies in the arts, the collection advocates for the central role of craft in art and society. Toward that end, Craft Front & Center is organized into eight themes exploring craft’s impact. Each section is punctuated with pivotal and rarely seen works from iconic makers, such as Betty Woodman, Marvin Lipofsky, and Magdalena Abakanowicz. The exhibition also casts a fresh eye on craft’s pioneers; celebrating Olga de Amaral, Charles Loloma, Patti Warashina, and others who pushed the boundaries of materials and sought more inclusive sources of inspiration. Showcasing the diversity and expressive power of the handmade as only MAD can, the exhibition affirms craft as one of the most exciting spaces for experimentation and wonder in art today.

EXHIBITION THEMES

In the Formation of Identity

Handmade objects are potent receptacles of emotions and memories, infused with human warmth that enliven and enrich the home.

What Can You Do with an Object?
A look back at the seminal exhibition Objects: USA, and the works displayed whose innovations still resonate.

Fiber artists past and present have generated works of amazing complexity and conceptual ingenuity.

“The second half of the 19th century saw a profusion of flamboyant pottery, spurred by the invention in Britain of ‘majolica’ – a new form of earthenware, which took its cues from the maiolica ceramics of Renaissance Italy but which could be produced on an industrial scale. Eccentric designs and vivid, polychrome glazes abounded on both sides of the Atlantic. Bard Graduate Center is hosting the first major survey dedicated to 'Majolica Mania'.”—Apollo Magazine

The Metropolitan Opera

The 2021–22 season opens with the Met's first performance of an opera by a Black composer. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard’s adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir, which The New York Times praised after its 2019 world premiere at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis as “bold and affecting” and “subtly powerful.” Featuring a libretto by filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship. James Robinson and Camille A. Brown—two of the creators of the Met’s sensational recent production of Porgy and Bess—co-direct this new staging; Brown, who is also the production’s choreographer, becomes the first Black director to create a mainstage Met production. Baritone Will Liverman, one of opera’s most exciting young artists, stars as Charles, alongside sopranos Angel Blue as Destiny/Loneliness/Greta and Latonia Moore as Billie.

Content Advisory: Fire Shut Up in My Bones addresses adult themes and contains some adult language.

An opera by Terence Blanchard

Based on the Book by ‎Charles M. Blow

Libretto by Kasi Lemmons

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, LA Opera, and Lyric Opera of Chicago 

Commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera. Originally commissioned by Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, co-commissioned by Jazz St. Louis.

Celebrate the extraordinary life and language of the ‘Poet Laureate of Jazz’. These five lectures will endeavor to trace the long arc of Jon Hendricks’ extraordinary life in order to find out how it was that he emerged to become the greatest Jazz poet who has ever lived.   By listening to select recordings and analyzing his lyrical output, we will attempt to trace the development of his unique output over the many decades of his career and seek to gain an understanding of his wisdom and the depth of his craft.

Swing U classes will be available to re-watch on-demand up to 7 days after airing.

PURCHASE BY INDIVIDUAL WEEK • ALL CLASSES 3PM ET

WEEK 1 • OCT 9 – JON HENDRICKS’ EARLY YEARS   REGISTER

Growing up as a preacher’s son in Toledo, Ohio, Jon Hendricks would ultimately find his musical voice and his way to New York. A winding road through the years of World War II, an encounter with Charlie Parker, and more will ultimately land him at the perfect place to launch his legendary career.

WEEK 2 • OCT 16 – THE BIRTH OF VOCALESE   REGISTER

Today we explore what Vocalese is, how it emerged within Jazz singing, and how Jon Hendricks became involved in its rise. We’ll hear from fellow masters like King Pleasure and Dave Lambert, listen for what made Jon Hendricks’ style so unique, and then dive into one of Jazz’s greatest releases: Sing a Song of Basie by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross.

WEEK 3 • OCT 23 – LAMBERT, HENDRICKS, AND ROSS   REGISTER

One of the greatest ensembles of all time, “The Hottest New Group in Jazz” would upend the world of jazz vocals throughout their run of 1957-1962. We’ll discuss how the group formed, explore some of their greatest moments as a trio, and delve into the end of the era following Ross’ departure.

WEEK 4 • OCT 30 – LIFE AFTER LAMBERT, HENDRICKS, AND ROSS   REGISTER

While Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross disbanded in 1964, Hendricks found himself working extensively, taking part in tireless touring, recording solo albums, establishing the ensemble Jon Hendricks & Co, and even taking part in new collaborations, most famously with none other than the Manhattan Transfer!

WEEK 5 • NOV 6 – FINAL DECADES   REGISTER

Hendricks remained active right up until his passing in 2017 at age 96. Incredible late-career projects like his lyricization of the famous Miles Ahead album, brilliant late-career albums like Freddie Freeloader, and more paint a picture of an artist who never stopped growing. We’ll explore his final years and his lasting legacy.

When

2:00pm - 5:00pm

Museum of Arts and Design

Can an art object be “seen” by senses other than vision? Join us at Central Park’s Maine Monument and discover the surprising ways all of our senses contribute to our experience and understanding of art during an interactive demonstration of Yeseul Song’s Invisible Sculpture on Wheels.  

Invisible Sculpture on Wheels is an experiential, multi-sensory sculpture that isn’t visually discernible, yet has a spatial form and occupies space. Visitors can perceive the sculpture through sound feedback that responds to their hand gestures and movement. As the sound changes, visitors sense the boundaries of the sculpture’s form.

Participants also will be invited to make clay versions of the sculpture. The “visible” sculptures made by the participants will become a collective perception of the invisible sculpture, celebrating individual differences and diversity of human perceptions while questioning the idea of “normal” and “truth.” Will everyone see the same sculpture?

American Folk Art Museum

Weathervanes have historically served as both tools for farmers, sailors, and others to predict the wind’s direction, and fanciful, imaginative forms designed to captivate and delight viewers from below. Over time, these works have also become ritual objects imbued with stories, as well as signifiers of communal importance, individual identity, patriotism, status, and romanticized, bygone eras. This virtual symposium will showcase new research examining the rich and complex layers of meaning found within American weathervanes.

Points of Interest: New Approaches to American Weathervanes is a symposium organized in conjunction with the Museum’s current exhibition American Weathervanes: The Art of the Winds and in honor of Elizabeth and Irwin Warren, dedicated advocates of the American Folk Art Museum. The American Weathervanes exhibition is curated by Robert Shaw and coordinated by Emelie Gevalt with additional interpretation by consulting scholar Joseph Zordan.
