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.

Through March 17, 2013 - New York

But in this work, beautifully executed by Carte Blanche, the Norwegian National Company of Contemporary Dance, Eyal and Behar rip off the tutus and force the dancers' heels down to earth. They pulsate in a raw, organic unit that regularly breaks into military positions set to the music of Debussy, to mechanical outbursts of the German industrial band Einsturzende Neubauten's, and to friendly passages from David Byrne's warped backyard. With ice cool stares from the alternately beautiful and grotesque apparitions, Corps de Walk creates a visual and musical journey of pounding beats.

Jefferson Airplane was among the first and the most commercially successful of the San Francisco acid rock psychedelic groups of the '60s. The group began to fragment at the end of the decade, and Kantner released a solo album, Blows Against the Empire, in 1970. It was followed by a duo album with his wife, Airplane lead singer Grace Slick, Sunfighter, in 1971, and a trio album, Baron Vol Tollbooth & the Chrome Nun, with Slick and David Freiberg (who had replaced Balin in the Airplane) in 1973. Kantner and Slick reorganized the Airplane under the name Jefferson Starship in 1974. Kantner released a second solo album, Planet Earth Rock 'N' Roll Orchestra, in 1983, and left Jefferson Starship in 1984, after which the band's name was truncated to Starship.

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.

St. Patrick's Day Record Release Party with Slaine - Highline Ballroom
March 17, 2013 - New York

If you believe Life is hard yet one of the best gifts anyone can be granted, you'll understand the journey of Slaine. The hard knocks and struggle of this Boston native may sound like good tidbits for a novel, television or mini-series. Hailing from the Dorchester area with deep connections in South Boston, Slaine's life was patterned somewhat of a gypsy moving around often. With hard hitting lyrical content, and vicious delivery, "A World with No Skies 2.0" instantly takes hip-hop back to its grimy roots on the streets. To execute his dark musical vision, Slaine enlisted the help of his La Coka Nostra brothers Everlast and ILL BILL, as well as Cypress Hill's B-Real and Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks to create a dark hip-hop album that hits squarely in the jaw.
