    In a two-channel video installation in MoMA PS1's "Greater New York," Sondra Perry, a Columbia University-trained artist now in residence at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, explores domestic rituals—some traditionally African-American, some newly contrived for the camera—involving friends and family in Perth Amboy, N.J.

  4. Atlas Moscow: Refuseniks and Apparatchiks

  7. Between Worlds

    Painter and sculptor Joaquín Torres-García left his native Uruguay for 40 years, absorbing radical new art in Europe and the U.S., before returning home in 1934 to advocate for a School of the South, a distinct Latin American movement.
