Friday, July 22–Sunday, January 8, 2023

11. “New York: 1962–1964” at the Jewish Museum, New York

The Jewish Museum examines how New York artists were inspired by a three-year period that saw Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, the March on Washington in 1963, and, later that same year, President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The show features everyone from Robert Rauschenberg to Faith Ringgold, Merce Cunningham to Marisol, and Mark di Suvero to Yayoi Kusama. The exhibition will be accompanied by pair of film series covering the same three year period. At Film at Lincoln Center, “New York, 1962–1964: Underground and Experimental Cinema” (July 29–August 4), will showcase work by filmmakers including artists Jonas Mekas, Carolee Schneemann, Andy Warhol, and Stan VanDerBeek. At Film Forum, “1962…1963…1964” (July 22–August 11), takes a look at more mainstream movies produced across the globe, including Laurence of Arabia, Dr. Strangelove, 8½, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
