Metropolitan Museum

Assyria to Iberia at the Dawn of the Classical Age
Open through January 15, 2015
This landmark exhibition traces the deep roots of interaction between the ancient Near East and the lands along the shores of the Mediterranean and their impact on the artistic traditions that developed in the region. Drawing on the world’s leading museum collections, it brings together some 260 works of art including monumental sculptures, wall reliefs, and luxurious jewelry.

Cubism: The Leonard A. Lauder Collection
Open through February 16, 2015
Cubism, the most influential art movement of the early 20th century, still resonates today. The Leonard A. Lauder Collection, unsurpassed in its holdings of Cubist art, is being shown in public for the first time—80 paintings, collages, drawings, and sculpture by the four preeminent Cubist artists: Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, and Pablo Picasso.

MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art)

All special exhibitions are included with CityPASS.

Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs
Open through February 8, 2015
The most extensive presentation of the artist's cut-outs ever assembled, this eagerly anticipated exhibition features approximately 100 examples from this innovative body of work—made beginning in the 1940s when Matisse turned to cut paper as his primary medium—alongside drawings, illustrated books, stained glass, and textiles. Among the masterpieces on view will be the Museum's The Swimming Pool (1952), a monumental cut-out originally made for the artist's dining room, which has been newly conserved and is being exhibited for the first time in more than 20 years.

Timed tickets are required for Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs and will be available to CityPASS holders on a first-come, first-served basis at the Museum on the day of your visit. We recommend arriving earlier in the day, as there is a limited capacity and the exhibition may sell out on certain days.

Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor
Open through January 18, 2015
The Heart Is Not a Metaphor is the first large-scale survey of Robert Gober’s career to take place in the United States. Featuring loans from institutions and private collections in North America and Europe, along with selections from the artist’s collection, the exhibition includes around 130 works across several mediums, including individual sculptures and immersive sculptural environments and a distinctive body of drawings, prints, and photographs.

The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters
Open through March 22, 2015
A preeminent artist of Belle Époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec brought the language of the late-19th-century avant-garde to a broad public through his famous posters, prints, and illustrations for journals and magazines. This exhibition, drawn almost exclusively from The Museum of Modern Art’s stellar collection of posters, lithographs, printed ephemera, and illustrated books, is the first MoMA exhibition in 30 years dedicated solely to Lautrec, and features over 100 examples of the best-known works created during the apex of his career.

Guggenheim Museum

Visit the Guggenheim's website to see what special exhibits are currently on view.

Kandinsky Before Abstraction: 1901-1911
Open through March 2015
Early in his career Vasily Kandinsky experimented with printmaking, produced brightly-colored landscapes of the German countryside, and explored recognizable and recurrent motifs. This intimate exhibition drawn from the Guggenheim collection explores the artist’s representational origins.

Zero: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s-60s
Open through January 7, 2015
This is the first large-scale historical survey in the United States dedicated to the German artists' group Zero (1957–66) founded by Heinz Mack and Otto Piene and joined in 1961 by Günther Uecker, and ZERO, an international network of like-minded artists from Europe, Japan, and North and South America—including Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Piero Manzoni, Almir Mavignier, Jan Schoonhoven, and Jesús Rafael Soto—who shared the group’s aspiration to transform and redefine art in the aftermath of World War II. Featuring more than 40 artists from 10 countries, the exhibition explores the experimental practices developed by this extensive ZERO network of artists, whose work anticipated aspects of Land art, Minimalism, and Conceptual art.

A Long-Awaited Tribute: Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian House and Pavillion
This presentation, composed of selected materials from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Archives, pays homage to these two structures. Aware of his lack of architectural recognition in New York City prior to the 1953 exhibition, Wright declared: This house and the pavilion alongside it ... represent a long-awaited tribute: the first Wright building[s] erected in New York City.
