Thunderbird American Indian Dancers' 38th Annual Concert - Theater for the New City
January 27, 2013 - East Village

Thunderbird American Indian Dancers will hold their 38th annual Dance Concert and Pow Wow at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, from January 25 to February 3, 2013. The troupe's appearances benefit college funds for needy Native American students. The company's Pow-Wows have been presented annually as a two-week event by TNC since 1976, with the box office donated to these funds. There will be dances, stories and traditional music from the Iroquois and Native Peoples of the Northwest Coast, the Southwest, the Plains, and the Arctic regions. Between 15 and 20 dancers will assemble for the event. Highlights will include Storytelling, a Hoop Dance, a Caribou Dance (from the Inuit people of Alaska), a Buffalo Dance (from the Hopi people), a Grass Dance and Jingle Dress Dance (from the Northern Plains people), a Stomp Dance (from the Southeastern tribes), and a Shawl Dance (from the Oklahoma tribes). In the final section of the program, the audience will be invited to join in the Round Dance, a friendship dance. After matinees, the cast will remain in the theater to personally meet the children attending and be photographed with them. This component of the show was inspired by the troupe's school residencies. A Pow-Wow is more than just a spectator event: it is a joyous reunion for native peoples nationwide and an opportunity for the non-Indian community to voyage into the philosophy and beauty of Native culture. Traditionally a gathering and sharing of events, Pow-Wows have come to include spectacular dance competitions, exhibitions, and enjoyment of traditional foods. Pageantry is an important component of the event, and all participants are elaborately dressed. Most dances are performed in the traditional Circle, which represents a unity of peoples. There is a wealth of cultural information encoded in the movements of each dance. More than ten distinct tribes will be represented in the performance. Throughout the performance, all elements are explained in depth through detailed introductions by the troupe's Director and Emcee Louis Mofsie (Hopi/Winnebago). An educator, Mofsie plays an important part in the show by his ability to present a comprehensive view of native culture. Native American craft items will be displayed in the TNC lobby. The Thunderbird American Indian Dancers are the oldest resident Native American dance company in New York. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women, all New Yorkers, who were descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago and San Blas tribes. Some were in school at the time; all were "first generation," meaning that their parents had been born on reservations. They founded the troupe to keep alive the traditions, songs and dances they had learned from their parents, and added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York and some who were passing through. Within three or four years, they were traveling throughout the continental U.S., expanding and sharing their repertoire and gleaning new dances on the reservations. (A number of Thunderbird members are winners of Fancy Dance contests held on reservations, where the standard of competition is unmistakably high.) Members of the Thunderbirds range in professions from teachers to hospital patient advocates, tree surgeons and computer engineers. The Thunderbird-TNC collaboration began in 1975, when Crystal Field directed a play called "The Only Good Indian." For research, Ms. Field lived on a Hopi reservation for three weeks. In preparation for the project, she met Louis Mofsie, and they made plans for a Pow Wow to celebrate the Winter Solstice. The event has continued annually to this day.

Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor - La MaMa E.T.C.
Through January 27, 2013 - NYC

With humor and vision, "Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor" (http://kaneandhabil.com) explores the original family sins that are still impacting our civilization. The title characters are the children of Adam and Eve. The play is a comedy, written and directed by Serge Ernandez. The production features an adept cast headed by Obie-winner Sheila Dabney as Eve, who also directs the play's chorus. Ernandez is a veteran of The Living Theatre; Dabney is a senior member of La MaMa's Great Jones Rep. La MaMa E.T.C. will present the play's premiere run January 18 to 27 in its second-floor Club. Like other theatrical works drawn from the creation story (notably the first act of "The Apple Tree," based on Mark Twain's "The Diaries of Adam and Eve"), this piece takes a lighthearted approach. There are wit and innocence, likeable characters, and an overall optimistic philosophy. The play contrasts the legacy of Kane--hatred, judgment and separation--with the legacy of Habil -- compassion, forgiveness and one-ness. The latter is submitted as the path to free humanity from its guilt and aggression, enabling it instead to love. Playwright Serge Ernandez explains, "It is a comedy where we laugh often and easily, as we must laugh at ourselves from time to time and self-reflect so we can evolve."

Bound Unbound: Lin Tianmiao - Asia Society and Museum
Through January 27, 2013 - New York

One of Lin Tianmiao's clearest recollections of her childhood in China was helping her mother sew clothes for the family. When she returned to China after spending eight years living in New York, she was inspired by this memory to create a technique she calls thread winding, where she winds silk or cotton thread around an object until it is completely covered and ultimately transformed. She used this in one of her first major works called The Proliferation of Thread Winding in 1995, which began her career as an artist and is included in the exhibition. Her use of the technique continues today and can be seen in such recent works as All the Same.

Born Out of Necessity - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - Midtown

Showcasing objects that adhere to the traditional view of design as a tool for problem-solving, Born out of Necessity offers close examination of the problems themselves -- whether urgent, foreseen, or imagined. From objects that respond to pressing needs in developing countries to new solutions that are tailored to the urban environment, the exhibition examines how design intervenes across a range of experiences, including medical emergencies and natural disasters. Other objects demonstrate how products created to address specific challenges for people with disabilities can provide solutions that improve everyone's life. Drawing on the narrative power of design, Born out of Necessity addresses a host of complex cultural developments, such as the need to incorporate environmental responsibility in everyday life, our attempts to marry ancient religious beliefs with contemporary mores, and the desire to anticipate and prevent technological and ecological quagmires.

Eyes Closed/Eyes Open: Recent Acquisitions in Drawings - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - New York

This exhibition is culled from the past two years of acquisitions by MoMA's Department of Drawings. Anchored in various explorations of the late 1960s, these works reveal a range of creative, intellectual, and critical impulses -- whether serving as an intimate record of the artist's practice, or purposefully crafted to address an assumed wider audience. German artist Franz Erhard Walther created a suite of "work drawings" to illustrate (both functionally and conceptually) his First Work Series (1963-69), a group of 58 interactive sculptural objects, on display at the Museum for the first time since their original presentation here in 1969. While roughly contemporary, Willem de Kooning's "Eyes-Closed" drawings of 1966, which were sketched blindly by the artist, offer a counterpoint to Walther's project and seem to embrace the traditional role of drawing as a tool of private expression, while Martha Rosler's Bringing the War Home: House Beautiful photomontage series of 1967-72 turns a critical eye to the era's sociopolitical context and expanding media sphere.

Andy Warhol's San Diego Surf - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - New York

Andy Warhol's San Diego Surf concerns an unhappily married couple (Taylor Mead and Viva), new parents who rent their beach house to a group of surfers. Filmed with two 16mm cameras by Warhol and Paul Morrissey in May 1968, this was the first movie Warhol made in California in the five years since Tarzan and Jane Regained, Sort of.... It was also one of the last films in which the artist had direct involvement; in June 1968, Warhol was shot by Valerie Solanas, after which his work behind the movie camera came largely to an end. San Diego Surf was only partially edited and never released. In 1995, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. commissioned Morrissey to complete the editing, based on existing notes and the rough cut. San Diego Surf is a significant addition to an epic oeuvre. Restored by The Andy Warhol Foundation and released by The Andy Warhol Museum as part of the museum's larger mission of promoting and safeguarding Andy Warhol's legacy.

'Arousal' - Able Fine Art NY Gallery
Through January 29, 2013 - New York

“Arousal” January 9- 29, 2013 Opening Reception: Thursday, January 10th, 6-8pm Participating Artists: Yona Tukuser Laurel Shute Tadashi Hashimoto Wan Kim Able Fine Art NY Gallery is pleased to present the works of Yona Tukuser, Laurel Shute, Tadashi Hashimoto, and Wan Kim. Each artist presents distinctive work that communicates a strong visual language that address contrasting relationships, emotions, and concepts through a variety of mediums. Yona Tukuser creates exceptional depth in her paintings through expressive brushstrokes and complex and contrasting color. Her work is filled with personal expressionism and psychological meaning that addresses the contrasting issues and themes of death, despair, passion, fear, and love. Laurel Shute creates a strong and dynamic visual language rooted in her perceptions of color, space, and shape in her natural surroundings. Her work has developed in art from painting to large sculptures that reflect her empathetic relationship with her natural environment. Similarly, Tadashi Hashimoto focuses on large scale and site specific outdoor sculptures that define and open space suggesting volume and void. He plays with different materials and textures to address and display the paradoxes of mass and space, stability and movement. Wan Kim’s artwork is a reflection of his intrigue with line and space and their spiritual and metaphorical implications. What defines his work is his unique creation of rough linear texture. The meaning of his art resides in the Oriental philosophy on straight lines and their portrayal of the spiritual world of ‘Zen’.

Entitled The RAMMELLZEE Galaxseum, the exhibition will reveal the inner workings of RAMMELLZEE's artistic vision and trace his career trajectory which began in the 1970s as a pioneering "Wild Style" graffiti writer and hip hop MC and evolved in manifesto and medium to the far reaches of the imagination. RAMMELLZEE's legend grew in a Tribeca loft known as the "Battle Station," where the artist conceived a new vision for the future – a self-made mythology, known as Gothic Futurism, with its own set of heroes and villains, which he called Recyclers and Trashers or more notably, Garbage Gods and Monster Models. For over 30 years, RAMMELLZEE inhabited the universe he created, building layer upon layer of legend and legacy. The RAMMELLZEE Galaxseum showcases a visual encyclopedia of RAMMELLZEE's artworks including full-body life-sized costumes, masks, character frescoes, figurines, large scale paintings and video and audio recordings from some of his performances.
