Immigration Battle – FRONTLINE
The amazing Camerini-Robertson filmmaking team has done it again! Their newest film IMMIGRATION BATTLE will air on PBS's Frontline/Independent Lens tomorrow night (Tuesday October 20th) at 9pm.
In this two-hour special, acclaimed independent filmmakers Shari Robertson and Michael Camerini take viewers behind closed doors in Washington's corridors of power to explore the political realities surrounding one of the country's most pressing and divisive issues. The film is a personal, profane, rollicking saga that is very current - with Congressmen Mick Mulvaney, Paul Ryan and Luis Gutierrez in starring roles.

Roy Lichtenstein - September 10 - October 17, 2015 - Images - Gagosian Gallery
Only three days left to see Roy Lichtenstein’s "Greene Street Mural" - don't miss this show!
In December 1983, Roy Lichtenstein created Greene Street Mural, an unprecedented, site-specific, and temporary wall painting measuring 18' × 96-1/2' at the Castelli Gallery at 142 Greene Street. In accordance with Lichtenstein's intention, the work was destroyed after the six-week show. More than thirty years later, Gagosian presents to a new generation of viewers a full-scale painted replica of the original work, based on documentation from Lichtenstein's studio and produced under the supervision of his former studio assistant. In keeping with the momentous spirit of the original project, the replica will be destroyed at the close of the exhibition.
On view through Oct 17 at Gagosian Gallery, West 24th Street.

Picasso Sculpture offers a broad survey of the artist’s sculpture from 1902-1964. The show focuses on the artist’s lifelong work with sculpture, with a particular focus on his use of materials and processes. The exhibition, which features more than 100 sculptures, is organized in chronological chapters, starting with "Early Works and the First Cubist Sculptures, 1902-1909" and concluding with "Sheet Metal Sculptures, 1954-1964."

The program contains 75 paintings, drawings and sculptures by Picasso, along with photographs of the artist in his studio.

Ai Weiwei Trades Politics for Subtlety in First Solo Exhibition in China
"Barred since 2011 from traveling outside his home country, the artist Ai Weiwei has become a master of what might be called “remote exhibition-making” — using 3-D computer models, Skype, and a team of curators and assistants to create large-scale installations around the world from his studio in Beijing. But no virtual simulation was needed for the artist’s newest exhibition, which opened last weekend at the Galleria Continua and at the Tang Contemporary Art Center in the trendy 798 Art District of Beijing."
