    Social Studies

    Wed, Feb 25–Sat, Apr 25, 2015
    FIAF Gallery

    Colorful, commanding, and detailed, the captivating pieces in Social Studies tell histories not taught in classrooms. Layering collaged images and textured paint onto mid-century classroom maps, Joyce Kozloff transposes new perspectives onto archaic world views.

    An original member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, applied and decorative art practices are often the basis for Kozloff’s large-scale public and fine art works. Since the 1990s, she has been using maps and globes to explore issues of social and institutional injustice.

    Free and open
    to the public


    Tue–Fri: 11am–6pm
    Sat: 11am–5pm

  • The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

  • Mar 24, 2015 to Apr 7, 2015
  • Location: Film Forum
  • Description:

    Michel Houellebecq, possibly the most widely read living French writer, was believed kidnapped on September 16, 2011. But was he really? After a flurry of media reports of his abduction, the story goes cold and Houellebecq, famously reclusive, refuses to set the record straight. Now he goes one step further by starring as himself in a film that purports to tell the tale. 

    With a nod to O. Henry's short story, The Ransom of Red Chief, the film explores the dramatic territory where the personae of criminal and victim are remade in unexpected and surprisingly amusing ways. -Karen Cooper, Director, Film Forum

  • Dominique Riviere: Capturing the Melodies of China at Agora Gallery NYC

  • Mar 31, 2015 at 7:00am to Apr 21, 2015 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    Franco-American artist Dominique Riviere is an award-winning jewelry designer who has more recently turned his attention to two-dimensional fine art. With an exceptional eye for compositional elements, such as color and form, Riviere creates enchanting portraits of women in traditional garb playing classic Chinese instruments. Although Riviere’s paintings are inspired by the masters of the meticulous Chinese watercolor paintings that came out of the Song Dynasty, he chooses to utilize hard pastels as a medium over these traditional watercolors in order to cultivate a more mystical mood.


    Riviere has spent much of his life traveling to China, and these experiences have formed much of the basis of inspiration of his work. Each of Riviere’s figurative renderings contain strong emotive elements that help to create a spiritual and numinous effect. For Riviere, the point of his work is not to uncover a deeper meaning, but it is rather about “the exaltation of culture and beauty.”
