Throughout his life, Eugen Gabritschevsky displayed a precocious passion for the natural sciences, particularly entomology. Born in Russia, he completed advanced degrees in biology and genetics in Moscow, before pursuing postdoctoral studies in 1925 at Columbia University. Soon after he joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1927, his successful career was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931. There, and for the rest of his life, Gabritschevsky elaborated a prolific, refined, and heterogeneous body of work—gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper—imbued with his early scientific interests, observation skills, and a propensity for experimentation.

This first in-depth exhibition of Gabritschevsky’s relatively unknown artistic contribution is composed of more than eighty artworks, a film, publications, and archival documents. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Collection de l’Art Brut, Lausanne, and La maison rouge, Paris.

Price

General admission: $16.00, seniors: $14.00, students: $12.00

Judith Leiber spent sixty-five years in the handbag industry, from an apprentice in Budapest to the owner of an internationally renowned handbag company based in New York City. As the only female pattern-maker, and with the unusual ability to make a handbag from start to finish, Leiber brought a distinctly European training and skill set to the United States, where handbags were made with assembly-line skill division. This allowed her not only to succeed as a designer, but also to revolutionize the meaning of handbag craftsmanship for the American consumer.

Judith Leiber: Crafting a New York Story tells the tale of this illustrious craftswoman, designer, and businesswoman. The exhibition includes handbags that encompass the history of her eponymous company, which Leiber founded in 1963 at the age of forty-two, through 2004, when she designed her last handbag. Although biographical in nature, the exhibition also explores the gendered significance of the handbag in twentieth-century Western culture, and the centrality of immigrant entrepreneurship in the fabric of New York.
