Jasper Johns: Regrets
Jasper Johns emerged as a leading voice in American art in the late 1950s with paintings of iconic motifs such as flags, targets, and numbers. He has since developed a body of work of extraordinary narrative complexity and technical virtuosity. This exhibition premieres his most recent series of paintings, drawings, and prints, created over the last year and a half.

Now You See It: Photography and Concealment
Photography is a medium prized for its capacity to expose, lay bare, make visible. For many artists, the camera is, above all, a tool for revealing what would otherwise remain unnoticed. As Diane Arbus once said: "I really believe there are things which nobody would see unless I photographed them." At the root of this artistic impulse is a keen fascination with that which is hidden, obscure, or hitherto unseen. This exhibition presents a selection of contemporary photographs and video from the permanent collection that variously explores the medium's dynamic interplay between concealment and revelation.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Isamu Noguchi, Patent Holder: Designing the World of Tomorrow
This exhibition surveys the symbiotic relationship in Noguchi's work between sculpture and design in the years leading up to the 1939 World's Fair. That year's World's Fair was the first organized around a theme, "Building the World of Tomorrow." No artist or designer better exemplified that spirit than Noguchi, who would ultimately hold every recognized intellectual property right available (including thirteen US patents) and was among the most versatile designers to walk the planet since the likes of Renaissance do-it-alls like Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo.
The Noguchi Museum

Chicago in L.A.: Judy Chicago's Early Work, 1963–74
Before making her widely known and iconic feminist work of the 1970s, 1980s, and beyond, Judy Chicago explored painting, sculpture, and environmental performance, often using innovative industrial techniques and materials, including auto body painting and pyrotechnics. This exhibition surveys the artist's less-familiar but significant early work, produced when Chicago lived in Los Angeles and was a participant in the Finish Fetish school. The exhibition places Chicago's early work within the arc of her broader production and continues the reappraisal of the artist’s importance as a pioneer in the California art scene.
The Brooklyn Museum
200 Eastern Parkway
Open until
