Christian Finnegan - Gotham Comedy Club
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

Christian Finnegan is a stand up comedian. He appears frequently on the television and also writes things, for both money and for kicks. Christian can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom "Are We There Yet?" but is perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of VH1's "Best Week Ever", where he offered keen insight into the workings of popular culture and the ubiquity of celebrity genitalia. "Chappelle's Show" fans will recognize him as 'Chad', the only white roommate in the infamous "Mad Real World" sketch. And pinko Communists know Christian from his regular appearances on MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann". Christian Finnegan is a fixture (some might say 'barnacle') on Comedy Central, having starred in countless network interstitials, the shows "Premium Blend" and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and in his own special, "Comedy Central Presents: Christian Finnegan".

Daniel Turner - Franklin Parrasch Gallery
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

An eponymous exhibition of new works by the artist (b. 1983).

Turner has shaped an environment which sustainedly contains ambiguous scenarios within itself. These environments seem to suggest a precarious situation which they never actually realize.

RISE - Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

RISE is an opera-infused play intertwining the tale of Rome's most infamous anarchist Emperor with the extravagant ambition of four modern-day misfits. In a decaying Roman Empire, debauchery and ruthlessness are de rigueur, but Boy-King Elagabalus's excesses and flagrant disregard for religious tradition and sexual taboos shocks even the most callous citizens. Placed on the throne by the conniving machinations of his mother and grandmother, Elagabalus marries a sacred Vestal Virgin, skewers the national religion, and flaunts his exploits with men and women of all classes. On the outskirts of LA, aspirations run high. Brick Richards has been a top player in porn for ten years, and his manager Myrna Malone desperately wants to convince him to transition to mainstream movies before his star fades. Myrna's assistant Glenn wants something different from Brick: a great, sweeping romance to make life complete. Glenn's roommate Mia doesn't care about sweeping romances, she just wants to achieve her dream of launching the next big cosmetics line, and maybe Myrna or Brick can make that happen? Through human history, one conflict is timeless: when personal ambition eclipses all other considerations, crossed desires lead to double crossing.

The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 21, 2013 - Midtown

This exhibition, covering the period from 1910 to today, offers a critical reassessment of photography's role in the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde movements -- with a special emphasis on the medium's relation to Dada, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Constructivism, New Objectivity, Conceptual, and Post-Conceptual art -- and in the development of contemporary artistic practices. The shaping of what came to be known as "New Vision" photography bore the obvious influence of "lens-based" and "time-based" works. El Lissitzky best summarized its ethos: "The new world will not need little pictures," he wrote in The Conquest of Art (1922). "If it needs a mirror, it has the photograph and the cinema." Bringing together over 250 works from MoMA's collection, the exhibition features major projects by Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Gerhard Ruhm, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, and Walid Raad, among others. Photographic history is presented as a multivalent history of distinct "new visions," rooted in unconventional and innovative exercises that range from photograms and photomontages to experimental films and photobooks.

The Guggenheim's recent acquisition of 20 works from a major series of pin drawings from 1975 to 1977 serves as a fulcrum for the New York presentation, which is conceived in close collaboration with the artist. An exhibition catalogue provides insights into her life and work. The New York presentation is organized by Sandhini Poddar, Associate Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Assembled by the New York connoisseur Wheelock Whitney between 1972 and 2000, this collection reveals a rich tradition of painting out of doors nearly a century before Impressionism, thus amplifying the role of the natural world as a source of inspiration to artists on the cusp of the modern epoch.

Shamanism is a soul-infused tradition of spiritual healing, transformational power, and perennial wisdom that sees all of life as interconnected and sacred. The process of awakening to this shamanic worldview is as vast as the universe itself. It excludes no one, yet favorably embraces those willing to surrender a limited sense of self. One must live it to understand it. This weekend apprenticeship experience is designed to offer participants a heartfelt deepening of their shamanic life. It is both an affirmation of one's oath to serve the betterment of humankind, and a celebration of this possibility in and of itself. Approximate Weekend Schedule: Friday Arrive between 3-5:30pm.

Living Newspaper - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre
Through April 21, 2013 - Garden City

Adelphi University's Department of Theatre presents the original drama Living Newspaper. The Federal Theatre Project (FTP) was the largest theatrical organization in the history of the world with productions seen by one quarter of the entire American population during the time of the Great Depression. Directed by its author, the Department of Theatre's Dr. Brian Rose, the play, using the format of the FTP's unique and signature style, tells the story of the FTP and the desperate fight of director Hallie Flanagan to save this powerful theatrical voice as it was threatened by the House Un-American Activities Committee with defunding for asking too many inconvenient questions. Living Newspaper was crafted to ask why the inconvenient issues posed by the FTP remain unsolved after over sixty years and why America has never had a federally or state funded theatre since. To learn more about the University’s Department of Theatre, please visit http://academics.adelphi.edu/artsci/pfa/theatre.php.
