LYFE JENNINGS - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
August 23, 2012 - New York

Only a month after being released from jail on a arson charge, Lyfe Jennings was on-stage at the famous Apollo. He was booed when he walked on-stage with an acoustic guitar, but when the Apollo audience heard his gritty falsetto and lyrical songwriting, they were swayed -- swayed to the tune of five amateur-night victories in a row. Lyfe figures he sold a thousand copies of his four-song demo CD during his Apollo "residency." That, along with a ton of calls from promoters and record label execs on his answering machine back in Ohio, influenced Lyfe to move to New York City and pursue a major-label deal. Columbia had the right offer and released his debut, Lyfe 268-192 (his inmate number), in August of 2004. A year after its original release, the album was reissued with a new version of "Hypothetically" featuring American Idol winner Fantasia added as a bonus track. The more hip-hop-oriented follow-up, The Phoenix, arrived in 2006 with Three 6 Mafia and Young Buck making guest appearances. ~ David Jeffries, All Music Guide

'Little Miss Muffet's Monster-Sitting Service' - Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre
Through August 26, 2012 - Manhattan

City Parks Foundation premieres a whimsical new theater piece for the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre based on the beloved nursery rhyme "Little Miss Muffet." "Little Miss Muffet's Monster-Sitting Service" tells the story of Molly Muffet (the great-great-great-great granddaughter of the original Little Miss Muffet) and what happens when she ends up home alone while her parents leave for a high school reunion. Molly's grandfather is called in to babysit but gets stranded by a snowstorm in Alaska. As a last resort, he calls in an old family friend, Aloisius Albrecht Alviss Spider (Al for short), the original spider from the famed nursery rhyme. Molly and Al quickly become friends and hatch a plan to start a baby-sitting service for baby monsters while her parents are away. As the night progresses and baby monsters get dropped off, Molly and Al receive news that the storm of the century is heading their way. Molly, Al, and the babies bunker down for what promises to be a long night filled with music, song, dance, and numerous surprises.

Spies in the House of Art - Photography, Film, and Video - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through August 26, 2012 -

Artists are the secret constituency of museums, inspired and challenged not only by the objects and collections they display but also by the spaces in which they are shown and the authority they represent. Most artists aspire to see their works in museums, even if they joke among themselves about how museums are mausoleums, places where art goes to die. In telling stories about how and why art gets made, museums provide a ready-made foil for artists to react against and clarify their own positions. This selection of photography, film, and video from the permanent collection surveys the various ways museums inspire the making of works of art. A museum can be the setting for a new work or provide the raw material for creations that build upon a previous aesthetic experience. The camera can highlight the estrangement of objects from their original functions, unlock from a straitlaced decorousness of display the desires -- libidinal or otherwise -- that engendered the objects in the first place, or make visible the imaginative projection that underlies much looking at art. At a time when the automatic reflex of a technologically harried and distracted museum visitor may be to point and shoot, capture and move on, these works suggest the benefit of stepping back, reflecting, and lingering. In an unprecedented commingling of old and new works, Andrea Fraser's video Museum Highlights: A Gallery Talk (1989) will be exhibited alongside paintings by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Alexandre Cabanel, and Franz Xaver Winterhalter in Gallery 809 within the Galleries of Nineteenth-Century, Modern, and Contemporary Art, around the corner from the main installation. A complementary installation of a dozen photographs from the medium's beginnings to the early 1970s will be on view through May 6 in Gallery 850.

Playing House - Brooklyn Museum
Through August 26, 2012 -

Playing House is the first in a series of installations that aim to engage visitors with the Brooklyn Museum's period rooms. Artists Betty Woodman, Anne Chu, Ann Agee, and Mary Lucier have been invited to place site-specific artwork in eight of the Museum's historic rooms, which have been interpreted by curators over the years to illustrate how Americans of various times, economic levels, and locations lived. The artists were asked to consider these factors when developing their ideas. The project originated with Woodman's observation that although being an artist means confronting the art of the past, no one can enter the past -- except through "make believe," or "playing house," by which the past can be appropriated. Chu created magical birds and flowers out of textiles, feathers, paper, and metal, unexpectedly bringing nature and the outside world into the rooms. Lucier, who is descended from Dutch and Huguenot settlers, created videos that evoke memories of place and where we come from. Agee transformed the strict social order and luxury of the Milligan rooms into an artisan's workshop, and Woodman created table settings and "carpets" incorporating painting and ceramics. Playing House occupies the Cupola House Dining Room, the Russell Parlor, the Cane Acres Plantation Dining Room, the Worsham-Rockefeller Moorish Smoking Room, the Schenck Houses, the Weil-Worgelt Study, and the Milligan Parlor and Library. The installation is organized by Barry R. Harwood, Curator of Decorative Arts, and Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum.

Sanford Biggers and Jennifer Zackin: a small world... - The Jewish Museum
Through August 26, 2012 -

In the collaborative video a small world..., artists Sanford Biggers and Jennifer Zackin juxtapose home movies of their families -- one African American and one Jewish American --- to explore the intersections of middle-class life across racial lines. Originally recorded in silent super-8 film, the video shows the artists as children growing up in New York and Los Angeles in the 1970s. Typical family events and holidays -- birthdays, Hanukkah, Christmas, barbecues, family trips to Disneyland, playtime in the backyard -- are shown simultaneously, drawing attention to similarities of class while recognizing differences of ethnicity.

The Parade: Nathalie Djurberg with Music by Hans Berg - New Museum
Through August 26, 2012 - New York

"The Parade: Nathalie Djurberg with Music by Hans Berg" is Djurberg's most ambitious multimedia installation to date. Originally organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Djurberg will adapt this spectacular installation for the New Museum's 'Studio 231' space. In the hands of Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg, animation becomes a medium for transgressive and nightmarish allegories of desire and malcontent. Since 2001, she has honed a distinctive style of filmmaking, using the pliability of clay to dramatize our most primal urges -- jealousy, revenge, greed, submission, and gluttony. Set to music and sound effects by her collaborator, Hans Berg, Djurberg's videos plumb the dark recesses of the mind, drawing sometimes disturbing connections between human psychology and animal behavior. Increasingly, the artists' interdisciplinary collaborations have blurred the cinematic, the sculptural, and the performative in immersive environments that pair moving images and musical compositions with related set pieces. For her new work, The Parade (2011), Djurberg has created five captivating animations and an unnerving menagerie of more than eighty freestanding bird sculptures. Drawing on avian physiology, rituals of mating and territorial display, and the social phenomenon of flocking, she has assembled a fantastical procession of species all fashioned from modest materials such as clay, wire, and painted canvas. These hybrid, sometimes monstrous forms speak to the artist's recurring interest in physical and psychological transformation, as well as pageantry, perversion, and abjection. In the accompanying claymation videos, humans and animals alike act out upsetting scenarios of torture, humiliation, and masquerade, further mining the interplay of brutality and guilt at the heart of Djurberg's work. Berg's eerie film scores -- composed of elements both found and invented -- suffuse the entire installation, merging to form a unified soundscape. With these films, both artists have begun to conceive narrative in spatial terms as aspects of character, setting, sound, and action migrate from one story to the next across the exhibition space. Born in Lysekil, Sweden, in 1978, Nathalie Djurberg received her MFA from Malm� Art Academy in 2002, and since that time she has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions around the world. Most notably, in 2009 she presented her installation The Experiment in the exhibition "Making Worlds" at the 53rd Venice Biennale, for which she was awarded the prestigious Silver Lion for Promising Young Artist. In 2008, Djurberg participated in the New Museum's "After Nature" exhibition curated by Massimiliano Gioni. She currently lives and works in Berlin with Hans Berg. Hans Berg was born in Rattvik, Sweden, in 1978. He is a Berlin-based electronic music producer and self-taught musician. He began playing the drums in punk and rock bands at the age of fourteen. By fifteen, Berg started creating electronic music -- which he has made ever since -- when he purchased his first synthesizer and sampler. Berg and Djurberg met in Berlin in 2004. Since then, he has composed the music for all of her films and installations. The exhibition is curated by Eric Crosby and Dean Otto for the Walker Art Center and organized at the New Museum by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Curator.

QUEST FOR THE WEST: Adventures On The Oregon Trail! - Theatre 80
Through August 26, 2012 - New York

Quest for the West: Adventures on the Oregon Trail! plays for five performances from August 11 through 26 as follows: Sat. 8/11 @ 7:00pm; Fri. 8/17 @ 5:30pm; Tues. 8/21 @ 2:00pm; Sat. 8/25 @ 7:00pm; Sun. 8/26 @ 5:30pm. 1848. Oregon fever has swept the nation. Jebediah and his wagon party embark on a 2,000-mile journey West. On the trail, the party encounters a river (how will they cross it? You decide…it’s interactive!), animals to hunt (“get out your balls, it’s time to go hunting”), prickly pear cacti (help them jump over these dangerous succulents!) and the ever present danger of dwindling water rations…and dysentery! Along their quest, the pioneers’ journey is filled with more than dirt trails. Romance develops; deep secrets & betrayals are revealed; and Jebediah’s darkness gets…darker. This musical comedy is a scored interactive game for the audience which works together as a team to determine the events that occur. Play well and you may just make it onto the Top 10 Score Board! 2,000 miles. 90 minutes. 11 songs. 8 games. 6 characters. From Writer/Director Ryan Emmons “We’re used to games and apps at our fingertips on a daily basis - this musical leans into those sensibilities, but the laughter and interaction that come along with live theatre could never be achieved on a computer screen. Manifest Destiny and the courage of the pioneers remind us of the outrageous trek men and women took west, our ability to make our own opportunities and the notion that it is in working (and playing) together that extraordinary things can be achieved.”
