Major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art examines the artist’s radical, innovative works. It will be on display from Saturday, March 26 until Sunday, July 24.
The exhibition shows Edgar Degas, best known as a painter and chronicler of the ballet, at his most modern. Bringing new focus to his extraordinary and rarely seen monotype prints and their impact on his wider practice, Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty is the first exhibition in the U.S. in nearly 50 years to examine these radical, innovative works—and MoMA’s first exhibition devoted solely to the artist.

“SLI” is our annual 10-day intensive that serves as the foundation for all of UBW’s community engagement activities. For Urban Bush Women's 16th SLI themed "You, Me, We – Understanding Internalized Racial Oppression and How it Manifests in Our Artistic Community," we will help us answer these important questions:
Do we find ourselves striving for pre-defined ideas of beauty and excellence?
Does our work challenge or recreate dominant frameworks and systems of policing that ignore history, culture, power and lineage?
At You, Me, We - we will find our individual and collective power together!

Artur Pashkov explores sexuality as energy and its mechanics and manifestations, whether it is a personal sexuality or sexuality in general.

This energy runs the world, and nudity is an essential part of it, something that Artur thinks people should not be ashamed of.

Inspired by two stories from Edgar Allan Poe, A SCYTHE OF TIME takes us to London, 1881, where the public can’t get enough of the infamously sensational Blackwood Articles, in which writers take their own lives and, in the process of dying, record their experience with death. On the other side of town, our heroine Signore Zenobia embarks on a quest to unravel the mystery of the articles in an effort to save her own magazine, and finds time pressing down on her as she composes a Blackwood Article of her very own. A bizarre tale of power and love, poetic justice and bloody revenge, A SCYTHE OF TIME shows us just how far one goes for fame and recognition in an absurd world.
