New York Museums

I am planning to visit some exhibitions, which will be on view in New York museums. These exhibitions are interesting and exciting in one way or another. I put their information here. This list is in my preferred order and not in the date order, so please check the dates before planning anything.

In MOMA: Without Boundary: Seventeen Ways of Looking form February 26 to May 22, 2006. An ever-increasing number of artists, such as Mona Hatoum, Shirin Neshat, and Shahzia Sikander, have come from the Islamic world to live in Europe and the United States. “Without Boundary” brings together some of these major contemporary voices. The exhibition features the work of artists of diverse backgrounds—Algerian, Egyptian, Indian, Iranian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Pakistani, Palestinian, and Turkish—across a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture, video, animation, photography, carpet and textile, and comic strips.

In Guggenheim Zaha Hadid from June 2 to August 23, 2006 she is a contemporary architect who is changing the limits of architecture. Here paintings drawings and designs will be shown in this exhibition.

In Whitney museum of American Art the Biennial 2006: Day for Night is on view from March 2 to May 28. The 2006 Whitney Biennial will examine contemporary art making in America at a moment of profound global change. The exhibition, titled Day for Night after Francois Truffaut's 1973 film, conjures a mood of dark intensity, shifting between beauty and degradation, doubt and conformity.

In MOMA: Edvard Munch, The Modern Life of the Soul from February 19 to May 8 2006.
