Matisse: In Search of True Painting - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through March 17, 2013 - New York

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the most acclaimed artists working in France during the first half of the twentieth century. The critic Clement Greenberg, writing in The Nation in 1949, called him a "self-assured master who can no more help painting well than breathing." Unbeknownst to many, painting had rarely come easily to Matisse. Throughout his career, he questioned, repainted, and reevaluated his work. He used his completed canvases as tools, repeating compositions in order to compare effects, gauge his progress, and, as he put it, "push further and deeper into true painting." While this manner of working with pairs, trios, and series is certainly not unique to Matisse, his need to progress methodically from one painting to the next is striking. Matisse: In Search of True Painting presents this particular aspect of Matisse's painting process by showcasing forty-nine vibrantly colored canvases. For Matisse, the process of creation was not simply a means to an end but a dimension of his art that was as important as the finished canvas.

The Seeing Place Theater Presents Sam Shephard's A Lie of the Mind - the Seeing Place@ ATA's Sargent Theater
Through March 17, 2013 - New York

The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work, brings you Sam Shepard's wacky "little legend about love." Story: What drives us hurt the people we love? And what stories do we tell ourselves to make it okay? In Shepard's darkly-comedic masterpiece, two estranged families are linked by a marriage both would rather forget - until a violent dispute forces them back together. Part myth, part life, part love story, this is a tale about growing up in the shadow of the American dream, about how our past generations shape our present lives, and about breaking out of the molds we inherit to find our way home. Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play in 1986, A Lie of the Mind probes the complex workings of the human heart and our ability to reconcile reality with illusion. Performance Dates: March 1-17, 2013 Schedule: Wed-Sat 7pm Sat & Sun 2pm Running Time: 3 hours, including two short intermissions totaling 15 minutes. Online Ticketing: http://www.smarttix.com/show.aspx?showcode=lie1E2 Box Office Phone: SmartTix/Ticketing: 212-868-4444 On-Site Box Office: 917-397-0978

A tricked out set with delightful doohickies and theatrical thingamabobs makes flowers bloom and veggies grow.

A History of Launching Ships - The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92
Through March 17, 2013 - Brooklyn

Returning for four encore performances! In the winter of 1779, a woman named Elizabeth Burgin defied New York City’s British occupiers by helping hundreds of patriots escape from prison ships anchored offshore of what is now the Brooklyn Navy Yard. With a bounty on her head, she fled the city. A HISTORY OF LAUNCHING SHIPS, a new play by Avi Glickstein, joins Burgin during her flight from the British and places her in the middle of a fantastical tale that echoes the gothic stories of Washington Irving. The play, commissioned by Polybe + Seats and written for the unique environment of The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, tells the story of the three women who take Burgin in and hide her. Each woman seeks an escape from her own reality, and, together, they realize that the only way to freedom might be on a ship they build themselves. A HISTORY OF LAUNCHING SHIPS is the first-ever theatrical production at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This site-specific production leads audiences through the four-floor building over the course of the performance, stopping to watch scenes among BLDG 92's exhibits. The Yard’s spirit and elements of its history act as seeds for the play’s mysterious story of four women isolated together inside the gates of a Naval Commandant’s home on the banks of an unnamed bay. Playwright Avi Glickstein has used the story of real-life Revolutionary heroine Elizabeth Burgin and archival materials from BLDG 92’s collection, as well as the gothic New York tales of Washington Irving, as a jumping-off point to create a uniquely American, ghostly tale of his own that echoes the Yard’s history as a center of innovation, reinvention, and sacrifice in service of a larger purpose.

Through March 17, 2013 - New York

Balazs Kicsiny's (b.1958, Hungary) paintings, photos and videos on display at Rooster Gallery have a common motif: their black-and-white checkered pattern, which originates from an English 16th-century sarcophagus in Westminster Abbey, London. This tomb, instead of representing the deceased in a figurative way, is nothing more than an abstract stone coffin.

Harmony Korine Retrospective - Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 22, 2013 - Astoria

Director, screenwriter, and artist Harmony Korine has developed an aesthetic as unique and bracing as any that launched in the heyday of 1990s American independent film. Korine made his name as the screenwriter of the nihilistic-teen movie Kids, but came into his own as a director with the 1997 feature debut, Gummo. From March 8 through 22, 2013, Museum of the Moving Image will present a retrospective of all of Korine's five feature films to date, including his latest, Spring Breakers—a triumph at both the Toronto and Venice film festivals. Harmony Korine will appear in person with the Museum's preview screening of Spring Breakers on Tuesday, March 12, at 7pm, participating in a conversation moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz after the film. Korine's latest is a high-concept pulp-fest featuring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine as co-eds who perform a catalogue of illegal and incendiary activities in order to get out of their boring small town for spring break. Also starring James Franco, the film opens theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on March 15 (nationwide on March 22), released by A24 Films. In addition to Spring Breakers (2013) and Gummo (1997), the Museum retrospective includes Mister Lonely (2007), Korine's largest production to date and which features art cinema luminaries Diego Luna, Werner Herzog, Denis Lavant, and Samantha Morton cast as celebrity impersonators; the critically acclaimed Julien Donkey-boy (1999); and the cult hit Trash Humpers (2009), which film critic J. Hoberman called a "gloriously desultory slap in the face of public taste." Together, these films reveal the eccentricities as well as the depth of one of the most compellingly divisive directors working today.

Saturday, March 23rd - Strike Party - See the show then stick around for our strike party. Music by DJ Rob Ramirez. BYOB. All shows start at 8pm sharp @ The Collapsible Hole (146 Metropolitan Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11211) THE SHOW - The Pinks is an original, darkly comic spy story about real life Confederate spy Rose Greenhow, a woman in a traditionally male profession, and the Pinkerton agents set on taking her down. In 1861, the Civil War was just a rebellion gaining traction (think: The Tea Party with more guns and matching outfits). A widow and mother of four, Rose used her extensive social network (and extensive charm) to seduce information from senators, military and members of the presidential cabinet to pass on to the Confederacy. She was devastatingly good. Enter Allan Pinkerton. Pinkerton was a hard-boiled detective, the first of his kind. He was an abolitionist who had worked on the Underground Railroad and offered his detective skills to Abraham Lincoln in service of the Union. Pinkerton suspected Rose was a spy and sent the first female private eye Kate Warne, another woman in a traditionally male profession, undercover to catch her. Once undercover, the lines between hero and villain blur as the people across the political divide come into focus. While foiling the Pinkertons efforts to find proof against her, Rose manages to seduce secret information from a northern captain. If the information can be passed to General P.G.T. Beauregard it will turn the Battle of Bull Run and change the course of the war. In the end, neither house arrest nor federal prison will stop Rose from pursuing her southern ideals. Drawing on graphic novels and film noir, Gold No Trade uses its signature physical style to uncover the fascinating history of two unknown American women. "The Pinks" is a tautly written historical fiction that examines the deeper drives behind Allan Pinkerton and two women: Kate Warne, the first female detective and Confederate spy Rose Greenhow. The play considers how these women, both in traditionally male professions, chose alternate paths to express equally devastating talents. And how only one was able to bridge that divide and tolerate the beliefs of the other. Rose Greenhow : A widow and mother of four in 1861, Rose Greenhow began passing secret messages to Confederate generals, helping to secure the Southern victory at Bull Run. She was placed under house arrest by the Pinkertons to curtail her activities, but continued to pass Northern military secrets to the South. She was then placed in a federal prison, but is rumored to have still managed to pass information to the South. In 1862, Jefferson Davis sent her to Europe to collect diplomatic intelligence. She also fund-raised extensively for the Confederacy and returned home carrying over $2000 in gold, some of which she sewed into her clothing. Off the coast of North Carolina, a Union gunboat pursued her ship, and Rose boarded a lifeboat. The small craft foundered and she drowneddragged down by the weight of the gold. Kate Warne : Little is known about Kate Warne, the first female detective hired by Allan Pinkerton. Most of her biographical information comes from Allan Pinkerton's Reminiscences years after the fact and has not been corroborated. He describes Kate the first time she walked into his office in 1856 as "a slender, brown-haired woman, graceful in her movements and self-possessed. Her features, although not what could be called handsome, were decidedly of an intellectual casther face was honest, which would cause one in distress instinctly (sic) to select her as a confidante" Accounts vary as to whether she came to Pinkerton for a job as a secretary or a detective, but Pinkerton remembers her convincingly explaining that she could "worm out secrets in many places to which it was impossible for male detectives to gain access". Pinkerton not only hired her, but by 1860 his agency had an entire female detective branch, headed by Kate Warne. To compare, women were first hired as investigators by the New York City police department in 1903. Allan Pinkerton : In 1852 Allan Pinkerton created The Pinkerton National Detective Agency the first private agency devoted to solving crime. In 1856 he hired the first female detective, Kate Warne, of whom little is known (see above). Pinkerton was a labor activist in his native Glasgow and worked the Underground Railroad outside of Chicago. His agency stymied train robbers, captured thieves and, in 1861, foiled an attempt on the life of president-elect Abraham Lincoln. The term "private eye" derives from his agency's trademark: an unblinking eye with the slogan "We Never Sleep." After his death, his sons took over the agency and closed the female detective branch. In time, the agency became known for anti-labor activities. The Pinks is a work of historical fiction. While it is unknown whether Kate Warne and Rose Greenhow ever met, we like to think they did.
