T. Rex Exhibition and Book Launch: How to Spend a Weekend in New York (February 19-21)

Collage: ForumDaily

What: Exhibition of works by Efim Mikhailov

When: Friday-Sunday, February 19-21

Where: Ukrainian History and Education Center 135 Davidson Avenue Somerset, NJ 08873

More: Efim Mikhailov was one of the most unusual and original Ukrainian artists of the early twentieth century. His desire to convey the world of ideas, feelings and sounds in a visual form has led to images that seem familiar, but at the same time unreal and surprising.

His symbolic landscapes, whirlwinds of musical stars and waterfalls, red-hot flowers in the moonlight and delicate still lifes were completely discordant with the work of his contemporaries. The artist's refusal to conform to socialist realism led to the artist's arrest, exile and premature death in the Russian Arctic.

Visible Music will be the first significant exhibition of the works of this artist in more than 30 years, it will feature 72 works by the artist.

Cost: Free options

Its exhibits were collected between 1996 and 1998, when museum teams made dozens of exploration trips and 28 expeditions to remote areas - from Indonesian volcanoes to the Sahara Desert in West Africa. Each trip included working with local experts and searching for the most geologically significant rocks. Each specimen and model has been chosen to illustrate an important aspect of the dynamic history of the Earth.

To tell about the most significant stages in the development of our planet, from its early evolution to earthquakes and storms that we face today, the hall is divided into exhibition zones, taking into account the main five questions:

  1. How did the Earth evolve?
  2. Why are there oceans, continents and mountains?
  3. What are rocks?
  4. What shapes the climate and causes it to change?
  5. Why is the Earth inhabited?

What: Exhibition of works by Aidas Bareikis

When: Friday, February 19, from 16:00

Where: 307 W 30th St 307 West 30th Street New York, NY 10001

More: Spectropia is an exhibition of new works by the Lithuanian artist Aidas Bareikis. It will feature twenty works from the artist's current Spectropia series. This name is inspired by the work of J. Brown "Spectropy, or Amazing Illusions, showing ghosts everywhere and of any color."

The book was published in 1864 in New York at the end of the American Civil War. Concerned about the growing belief in the "spirit world" and public interest in spiritualism in pre-war America, J. Brown published a book on "optical illusions" or "after-images of ghosts" - phosphenes, internal electrical charges produced by the retina, in the hope of debunking the idea of ​​the reality of ghosts. ... Bareikis draws a parallel between Brown's "ghostly moment" and the phantom state of our time, when archaisms of pre-modern imagery haunt the "moment of the closed eye" of postmodernism.

What: Seminar "History of the 'Pennsylvania' Station"

When: Friday, February 19, from 17:00

Where: Online

More: 150-foot ceilings inspired by the Roman baths of Caracalla, travertine marble and pink granite finishes, imperial colonnades - it's all about Pennsylvania Station, which was in New York from 1910 to 1963. It was the gateway to the largest city in the United States that really made train passengers feel like royalty.

However, due to poor financial management, the worst corporate merger in history, and weak building protection laws, the source of limitless inspiration has been destroyed and replaced. This is the story of one of the greatest public spaces ever built, and how its untimely demise eventually pulled New York City together to never again happen again.

Cost: $ 10
