Cyrano de Bergerac - The Loom Courtyard (behind Kave Espresso Bar)
Through September 15, 2013 - Brooklyn

The first show of our new season is an interactive, site specific, steampunk version of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano De Bergerac. (Yes, you read that right). Our inspiration for this production is from the Second Industrial Revolution, when Romantic idealists who believed in the pastoral, lush quality of life that came from a traditional society were pitted against the American Dreamers, who adopted social change, technology, and the "big-business" of mass production. We know what happened when factories became booming, smoke-stack castles and conditions for workers became heinous. We know what happened when people started to move from rural towns to big cities. What if Cyrano de Bergerac the hero of Romanticism, words and old fashioned honor - took place in this time of social upheaval? Throw in some steampunk-Victorian flair and an immersive, action-packed audience experience, and you have a true Wombat Theatre Co production. We want our audience to participate--to drink--to laugh--to get out of their seats and get involved in the story--in the world we have created. We can't wait to see you there. The audience will become involved in the action, sharing moments (and breaking bread!) with the characters themselves as we take you on a wild ride through Cyrano's story--an experience that will change your view of "interactive" theatre for good. When: Fri-Sun, Sept 6, 7, 8 & 13, 14, 15 at 8pm. More info: / Tickets:

Mettawee River Theatre Company Presents Performance of Taliesin - Cathedral of St. John the Divine
Through September 15, 2013 - New York

The Mettawee River Theatre Company, under the leadership of Artistic Director Ralph Lee, continues its tradition of presenting a performance on the Close during the days that bridge summer and fall with the enactment of Taliesin, a medieval Welsh tale of sorceresses, kings and valiant heroes, on Friday, September 6th – Sunday, September 8th and Friday, September 13th – Sunday, September 15th at 7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street). The story of Taliesin comes from a medieval Welsh tale of sorcery and court intrigue, in which the power of inspiration is accidentally bestowed on an unlikely kid, who can suddenly see beyond everyday reality, becoming Taliesin – “radiant brow,” inspiration for all poets in the Welsh bardic tradition. Mettawee’s production of Taliesin will incorporate a range of highly decorative puppetry, giant figures, masks and other works of art realized on many different scales in this celebration of transformation and imagination. The production is designed and directed by Ralph Lee, with a score composed by Neal Kirkwood and costumes designed by Casey Compton. Tickets are available for $12 (adults) and $6 (children and seniors). For more information, please visit

'Workt by Hand': Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts - Brooklyn Museum
Through September 15, 2013 - Brooklyn

"Workt by Hand": Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts showcases approximately thirty-five American and European quilt masterpieces from the Brooklyn Museum's renowned decorative arts collection. The exhibition examines the impact of feminist scholarship on the ways historical quilts have been and are currently viewed, contextualized, and interpreted. Spanning two centuries of quilt making, the exhibition features superlative examples of the most iconic quilt designs and techniques, including the "Barn Raising" or "Log Cabin" style, the "Garden Basket" style, "Double Wedding Band" designs, the "Rose of Sharon" pattern, and the Amish "Sunshine and Shadow" style, as well as a variety of album quilts. The exhibition considers how issues common to the craft and handmade nature of quilting practices, such as anonymity, authorship, and collectivity, have affected the interpretation and reception of quilts. It also examines the historical designation of quilts as crafts rather than art objects and the shift in the late twentieth century, under the influence of modernism, toward a formalist appreciation of quilts as works of abstract art. This shift, and its implications for the way quilts have been seen and understood, will be explored by the quilts being presented both vertically--as they are now frequently shown in museums and galleries--and horizontally, as though on the beds for which they were originally designed.

'Coney Night Maze' - Monumental-Scale Installation by New York Artist, Donna Dennis - Neuberger Museum of Art
Through September 15, 2013 - Purchase

One of the most popular New York City icons is the Coney Island Cyclone, a 1927 landmark wooden roller coaster, whose jack-knife turns and precipitous drops have thrilled hundreds of thousands of visitors since it opened in 1927. It is the inspiration for "Coney Night Maze," a monumental sculptural installation by artist Donna Dennis that will be presented to the public for the first time at the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, from June 7 through September 15, 2013. An opening reception will be held Friday evening, June 7, 2013, from 6-8:30pm. Thirteen years in the making, "Coney Night Maze" draws on the labyrinth of fences, gates, and ramps nestled among the I-beams and columns located beneath the actual Cyclone. Rising to a height of twelve feet, the installation includes an ascending rollercoaster-like track which weaves in and out of the darkness, then descends into the distance, skimming the edge of a rock wall that runs the work's entire 27-foot length. Set in a darkened space and lit by rows of bare bulbs, the hovering Cyclone structure with its dead ends, locked gates, and abandoned ticket booths, evokes a phantasmal nocturnal composition of compressed architecture in which the sound of a rollercoaster is heard faintly in the distance. How does one reach the track and its promise of a ride? Says Dennis, "This artwork is experienced from its perimeter. Maze encourages the viewer to encircle the piece. But because there is a deserted, middle-of-the-night quality about it, it's like going into the realm of the unknown. I've created a work that people will want to get into, but they'll have to use their imaginations to do that." Dennis first visited the Cyclone during the mid-1990s while it was closed for the winter. "Peering in, I saw this wooden, rickety structure with all these layers of fencing and beams," she recalls, "and I was fascinated by the green and red ramps, and how everything lined up. Yet, this being winter, none of the rides worked and there was sense of abandonment, which is why the piece I created captures that eerie sense of desertion, with parts that don't function - almost as if it were on its way out." She began "Coney Night Maze" in 1997, constructing the ramps and boardwalk planks, and incorporating related aspects of urban culture such as a subway turnstile and two small houses resembling subway ticket booths. But it was 9/11 that transformed her thinking. "I began to think seriously about mortality," she said. "When the Towers went down, my work went down, too. It was then - when there was so much talk about security - that fences began to mean something to me. So, in "Maze," I wanted the little houses to be fenced in and protected. I also began to view "Maze" as a fragile wooden structure to be equated with human life, and that led me to consider what we are doing to the Earth." So, she incorporated a large rock wall into the piece that was inspired by the steep rock formations of the New Jersey Palisades. "I liked the contrast between the ancient rocks and this rickety temporary structure." Dennis is best known for creating large-scale works, such as tourist cabins and subway stations, including "Subway with Silver Girders" (1981-82), "Deep Station" (1981-85), and drawbridges as in "BLUE BRIDGE/red shift" (1991-93). Deconstructing her architectural prototypes in a language that is both evocatively detailed and highly formal, her work is steeped in a well of personal emotion. Dennis views her work as stopping places or points of passage on a metaphorical journey through life. In the mid-1970s, the artist first came to the attention of both critics and the public with her large, architecturally inspired installations from her Subway Stations and Tourist Cabins series. During these years, artists became interested in tackling the psychological dynamics of architectural space and its cultural impact on society through ambitious sculptural installations. Along with sculptures and environmental interventions by such contemporaries as Alice Aycock, Mary Miss, and Siah Armajani, the work of Donna Dennis has brought a distinct, influential voice to this movement that specifically addresses vernacular architecture. Dennis has exhibited in major museums throughout the world and created public art works. Her work is in many prominent collections, including those of the Brooklyn Museum, the Cleveland Art Museum, the Microsoft Collection in Seattle, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Ludwig Forum fur Internationale Kunst in Aachen, Germany, the Indianapolis Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC. Dennis has exhibited throughout the world in major museums as well as public art installations. "Donna Dennis: Coney Night Maze" is curated by Helaine Posner, Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, and Avis Larson, Assistant Curator at the Neuberger Museum of Art. An illustrated brochure accompanies the exhibition, with an essay by Jan Riley, a curator and writer. Support for "Donna Dennis: Coney Night Maze" is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and ArtsWestchester, with support from Westchester County government. The Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College engages and inspires diverse audiences by actively fostering the study, appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of modern art, African art, and the art of our time. The Museum is located at 735 Anderson Hill Road in Purchase, New York (Westchester).

Dharma Art: Calligraphy by Jamjang Dorjee Chakrishar - Tibet House US Gallery
Through September 23, 2013 - New York

Jamyang’s calligraphy is a linguistic dance of Buddhist images and elements. He encompasses Lord Buddha’s body, spirit and mind in what Lama Zopa Rinpoche called his “Dharma Art." Boldly experimenting with a variety of mediums and styles, Jamyang's work is constantly evolving. The startling beauty and detail in Jamyang’s work comes from his deep devotion to the teachings of Buddha and his love for the Tibetan language. This is his first solo show in the United States, though his work is in private collections worldwide. Born in Lhasa, Jamyang later worked as senior official for the Government of Sikkim, India and the Tibetan Government in Exile.

Through September 23, 2013 - Midtown

Akram Zaatari (Lebanese, b. 1966) is a Beirut-based artist who works in photography, video, and performance to explore issues pertinent to the Lebanese postwar condition, specifically the mediation of territorial conflicts and wars though television and media. Zaatari collects and examines a wide range of documents that testify to the cultural and political conditions of Lebanon's postwar society. His artistic practice involves the study and investigation of the way these documents straddle, conflate, or confuse notions of history and memory. By analyzing and recontextualizing found audiotapes, video footage, photographs, journals, personal collections, interviews, and recollections, Zaatari explores the dynamics that govern the state of image-making in situations of war. To represent Zaatari's rich and varied artistic practice, Projects 100 includes art in a variety of mediums, including new and never-before exhibited works.

James Turrell - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through September 25, 2013 - New York

James Turrell's first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980 focuses on the artist's groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special focus on the role of site-specificity in his practice. At its core is a major new project that recasts the Guggenheim rotunda as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light. One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, the installation reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic architecture -- its openness to nature, graceful curves, and magnificent sense of space -- as one of Turrell's Skyspaces, referencing in particular his magnum opus Roden Crater (1976-). Reorienting visitors' experiences of the rotunda from above to below, the exhibition gives form to the air and light occupying the museum's central void, proposing an entirely new experience of the building. Other works from throughout the artist's career will be displayed in the museum's Annex Level galleries, offering a complement and counterpoint to the new work in the rotunda. Organized in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, James Turrell comprises one-third of a major retrospective exhibition spanning the United States during summer 2013. This exhibition is curated by Carmen Gimenez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, with Nat Trotman, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
