On view through October 11, 2015, it is the first Zimmerli show to chart the development of Hyperrealism by artists who lived and worked in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, and Ukraine during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Many of these works have never been exhibited outside the former Soviet Union. The artists sought to dismiss the rhetoric, the heroic and idealized subjects, that they collectively recognized in Socialist Realism; However, their work shows that Hyperrealist art was, in fact, complex and multifaceted, often influenced by regional and creative backgrounds.

Metropolitan Museum of Art to Display SULTANS OF DECCAN INDIA Exhibit, 4/20Metropolitan Museum of Art to Display SULTANS OF DECCAN INDIA Exhibit, 4/20
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2015

The Deccan plateau of south-central India was home to a succession of highly cultured Muslim kingdoms with a rich artistic heritage. Under their patronage in the 16th and 17th centuries, foreign influences—notably from Iran, Turkey, eastern Africa, and Europe—combined with ancient and prevailing Indian traditions to create a distinctive Indo-Islamic art and culture. Opening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on April 20, the landmark exhibition Sultans of Deccan India, 1500–1700: Opulence and Fantasy will bring together some 200 of the finest works from major international, private, and royal collections. Featuring many remarkable loans from India, the exhibition—which is the most comprehensive museum presentation on this subject to date—will explore the unmistakable character of classical Deccani art in various media: poetic lyricism in painting; lively creations in metalwork; and a distinguished tradition of textile production. A highlight will be the presentation of all of the known masterpieces and several new discoveries in painting, the greatest art of the Deccan. Another highlight will be the display of diamonds—some of the largest ever found—that originated in the great mines of the Deccan. (more...)
