At The Met Breuer

The Met Breuer is home to the exhibit “Everything Is Connected: Art and Conspiracy” this fall. Located on Madison Avenue at 75th Street, this museum is ideal for residents living on the Upper East Side, particularly residents at The Fairmont.

The exhibit is perfect for individuals who appreciate contemporary art, particularly with a side of good old-fashioned conspiracy. It features seventy works of art by thirty different artists spanning the time range of 1969 to 2016. Medias range from painting and sculpture to photography, video, and installation art, so truly a bit of everything. It showcases an alternate history of our troubled times, looking at hidden operations of power in our government. If you’re looking for an exhibit that will provoke interesting conversation at dinner parties through the season, this one is for you.

You can view this from Tuesday, September 18th through Sunday, January 6th, 2019.

At The Guggenheim

Heading a bit more Uptown, you’ll find the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, which houses the “Hilma af Klint” exhibit this season. Situated on 5th Avenue and 89th Street, this is also a great Upper East Side jaunt. Residents living at The Cambridge and The Marlowe will love the beautiful art that is practically delivered to their doorsteps.

If abstract paintings are your jam, this exhibit is one you won’t want to miss. The Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (who was alive from 1862–1944) was truly a pioneer of abstract painting, creating them as part of her involvement in mystical practices that sought contact with the spirit realm. Because of that, we think this exhibit is the perfect one to see during the month of Halloween–what a way to get in the spirit of the holiday!

This exhibit will be live from Friday, October 19th through Sunday, February 3rd, 2019.

At The Museum Of Modern Art

Midtown Manhattan is home to the Museum of Modern Art (aka MOMA), located on 53rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. What a great spot for Midtown East residents to take in some art on their lunch breaks!

“Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts” is the biggest retrospective of Bruce Nauman’s career. Nauman is a conceptual art pioneer, meaning if you’re a fan of performance art and video installation this is probably right up your alley. His whole mindset was “process over product”, and you can tell this by this creative exhibit that interrogates the human condition.

Disappearing Acts will be up from Sunday, October 21st through Sunday, February 18th, 2019.

At The Met Cloisters

The wildly popular “Heavenly Bodies” exhibition at the Met Cloisters (not far from Briar Hill!) is coming to a close this month. Revel in the intriguing exchange between fashion and devotion – a generations old relationship. This unique experience is highlighted by a generous loan from the Vatican, which has lent the museum 40 rare vestments that have previously never seen the light of day.

This exhibition has nearly run its course and will be concluded on October 8th, 2018.

Good To Know

Museums entrance fees can add up, especially if you’re planning an outing with your entire family or group of friends. It’s good to know that the museums listed in this article all have special hours with free or discounted pricing.

At The MET Breuer, New York State residents as well as New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut students have the advantage of the amount you pay for entrance being up to you (so essentially, “pay what you wish”.) The Guggenheim has “pay what you wish” hours every Saturday from 5pm to 7:45pm, and the MOMA has “Free Friday Nights”, every Friday evening from 4pm to 8:00pm.
