Lygia Pape: A Multitude of Forms is the first monographic exhibition in the United States devoted to Brazilian artist Lygia Pape (1927–2004). A critical figure in the development of Brazilian modern art, Pape combined geometric abstraction with notions of body, time, and space in unique ways that radically transformed the nature of the art object in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Covering a prolific, unclassifiable career that spanned five decades, this exhibition examines Pape's extraordinarily rich oeuvre as manifest across varied media—from sculpture, prints, and painting to installation, photography, performance, and film.

Before there was a historic house museum, there were 72 boxes of Louis Armstrong’s artifacts located at the Rosenthal Library at Queens College/CUNY in New York City. The story of how those boxes got there and grew into the worlds largest archives dedicated to a jazz musician is a true credit to both Louis and Lucille Armstrong. Throughout his storied career, Louis Armstrong entertained countless fans around the world onstage with his show-stopping live performances. But offstage, Armstrong was dedicated to documenting the story of his life, writing autobiographical stories, recording reel-to-reel tapes, designing collages, annotating photographs and compiling scrapbooks, doing so “for posterity.” Louis Armstrong passed away in 1971 in his Corona, Queens home. What was left with his wife … [Continue reading...]
