The Death of Klinghoffer - Metropolitan Opera
November 05, 2014 - New York

In what many John Adams admirers consider his greatest operatic composition, this new production takes place almost 30 years after the events chronicled in his meditative opus about the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship. Klinghoffer overwhelmed audiences when it premiered just a few years after the tragic incident; now it finally arrives at the Met - the third work by Adams (Doctor Atomic, Nixon in China) to be staged here in the last seven years. The dreamlike production of director Tom Morris (War Horse) balances the opera's poetic libretto and intense dramatic narrative. Paulo Szot stars in the leading role, and David Robertson conducts.

Violinist Itamar Zorman's Carnegie Hall Recital Debut - Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall
November 05, 2014 - New York

Superb violinist Itamar Zorman, described as a "virtuoso of emotions" (Goettinger Tageblatt), will make his Carnegie Hall recital debut as part of Carnegie Hall's Distinctive Debuts Series at Weill Recital Hall on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 7:30pm. Zorman was recently awarded the 2014 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, the 2013 Avery Fisher Career Grant, and in 2011 was one of two top prize winners at the Tchaikovsky International Violin Competition. His program, with pianist Kwan Yi, will include J.S. Bach's Solo Violin Sonata No. 3 in C Major; Schnittke's Violin Sonata No. 2, "Quasi una sonata;" Hindemeth's Solo Violin Sonata, Op. 31, No. 1; and Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 3 in D Minor. The Hindemith and Brahms are included on Zorman's debut album, which also features music by Messiaen, Schubert, and Chausson, released in Europe by Profil-Editions Gunther Hanssler in spring 2014. Zorman is a rare talent whose performances combine unparalleled technical prowess with unabashedly sincere emotional depth. The Guardian describes his playing as "astonishingly intimate and intense," and the New York Times raved that his "splendid playing conveyed precisely the right mix of tenderness, agitation and spiritual succor." Of a recent recital in Houston, the critic Joel Luks, writing for Culturemap Houston, wrote, "I allowed myself to cry. I wasn't the only one. Up until then, I was prepared to jot down a glowing review, the kind that is dotted with Hollywood-type movie remarks flashing across a silver screen - like riveting, gripping and two thumbs up. But in addition to having to scheme my escape in hopes of avoiding colleagues - because who wants to see a grown man cry - the whole premise of my critique was shot to hell. Technique can be taught and practiced . . . What's puzzling is how someone at a young age . . . is able to subsume so much aesthetic puissance into miniscule sonorities? That I couldn't explain." $38. Presented by Carnegie Hall's Distinctive Debuts Series http://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2014/11/5/0730/PM/Itamar-Zorman-Kwan-Yi/

'To The Inhabitants of Great Britain': The Robert R. Livingston Letters - New-York Historical Society
Through November 07, 2014 - New York

In the late spring of 1775, New York jurist Robert R. Livingston (1746-1813) drafted a letter titled "The Twelve United Colonies, by Their Delegates in Congress, to the Inhabitants of Great-Britain." Commissioned by the Second Continental Congress as an eleventh-hour attempt to reconcile with the mother country, it is a striking piece of testimony to the internal struggles of colonial leaders and patriots as they tried to develop a framework of reconciliation, and sheds new light on the period leading up to the Declaration of Independence and the final break with Great Britain. The letter was discovered last summer in the Morris-Jumel Mansion in New York City, which served as George Washington's headquarters during the Revolutionary War, and was recently acquired by Brian Hendelson, a noted New Jersey-based private collector. Hitherto unknown and unstudied, the manuscript will be on view at New-York Historical in the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library, and will remain on loan to New-York Historical for purposes of study and display for two years.

Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in the Roarin’ Twenties at AUPAC - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Through November 09, 2014 - Garden City

One of Shakespeare’s most famous comedies, Twelfth Night is a wild story of love and mistaken identities. Many of Shakespeare’s classic comedic devices – a young woman dressed as a young man, twins, fools, and gender-confused romance, to name a few – make an appearance through what is widely considered his last “happy comedy.” To express fully and uniquely the rich romance of Twelfth Night, Adelphi’s production will be set in the 1920s on the French Riviera. This combination of place and time allows for the exotic expression of the style and elegance that is central to the play, while being true to the story’s need for a beautiful seaside location. The setting gives as much of an opportunity to the Department of Theatre's talented design faculty and students as the text of the play provides for the actors. Twelfth Night is directed by Dr. Brian Rose, professor in the Department of Theatre. Dr. Rose has given thousands of performances of more than a hundred plays in his twenty-two year career as a critically acclaimed actor. He has also designed the “Experiencing London Theatre” program in which he travels to London with students from all departments at Adelphi for an intensive theatre-going study opportunity. His first production here, twenty years ago this month, was Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. Tickets for Twelfth Night are on sale now and are priced at $20 with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni. For more information about all the events at AUPAC and to purchase tickets, visit aupac.adelphi.edu. Information is available at The Lucia and Steven N. Fischer Box Office at (516) 877-4000 or [email protected] Regular box office hours are Tuesday through Friday, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. The box office is also open two hours before most scheduled performances. About Adelphi University: Adelphi is a world-class, modern university with excellent and highly relevant programs where students prepare for lives of active citizenship and professional careers. Through its schools and programs—College of Arts and Sciences, Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Honors College, Robert B. Willumstad School of Business, Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, University College, College of Nursing and Public Health and the School of Social Work—the coeducational university offers undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as professional and educational programs for adults.

Gilded New York - Museum of the City of New York
Through November 11, 2014 - Upper West Side

Inaugurating the Museum's Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery, Gilded New York explores the city's visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. In New York, this era was marked by the sudden rise of industrial and corporate wealth, amassed by such titans as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Jay Gould, who expressed their high status through extravagant fashions, architecture, and interior design. The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels. It was a time when New York became the nation's corporate headquarters and a popular Ladies' Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence.

Through November 14, 2014 - Flushing

100 NYC Public Sculptures at Queens Museum is a site-specific project that guides viewers without the need for travel or motion, and questions how a journey within a specific geographic sphere can be a work of art in itself.

Viewers participate in this project by experiencing each sculpture, whether through the original works or their representational drawn counterparts, calling attention to the very specific, transformative space between object and audience. (Architectural historian John Kriskiewics will offer a walk through the Public Sculptures in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on June 8.)

Grasshopper Grove - Hudson Highlands Nature Museum Outdoor Discovery Center
Through November 16, 2014 - Cornwall

Grasshopper Grove is a natural play area for young children that encourages them to explore the outdoor world, get their hands dirty, and have fun. Children can hop from stump to stump, dance, sing and perform in the Adirondack lean-to, lie down on top of a hill and watch the clouds make pictures in the sky, read a story with Mom or Dad in the rustic gazebo, water and weed a garden, and construct roads in the sand and dirt pile. These simple activities strengthen eye-hand coordination and muscle development while fostering creativity, critical thinking, appropriate risk-taking, problem solving, and cooperation, which are all critical to healthy childhood development. Grasshopper Grove follows a design developed in collaboration with Museum staff, board, parents and preschool students by one of the world's leaders in the field, Adam Bienenstock of Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds. Beginning with a half-acre of field surrounded by a rough stone wall and mature shag bark hickory trees, the area was graded to incorporate a low hill surrounded by a path, a dry stream bed and a higher hill offering a view of nearby fields and ponds. Taking inspiration from the 'wild' areas of the Outdoor Discovery Center, where the Museum's Young Naturalist Preschoolers love to play, elements were added to the area that include a fallen oak tree for climbing, large boulders, a wooden gazebo and Adirondack lean-to and an area of 'loose parts' for building. A series of cedar troughs catch water flowing from an old fashioned hand pump into the dry stream bed.

Great White Shark - Maritime Aquarium - IMAX
Through November 26, 2014 - Norwalk

No other modern animal may command both fear and fascination as much as the great white shark ? but The Maritime Aquarium's new IMAX?film suggests, instead, that these predators mainly need help and respect. This film unravels the mystery of the creature by telling the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain. "Our mission is to change people's attitudes toward the great white," said Steve McNicholas, co-director of the film. "It's not the menacing, evil predator it's made out to be. It's simply performing its crucial role at the top of the ocean's food chain. Great whites are not monsters any more than the polar bears or lions that we revere." The 40-minute film takes viewers around the world to great-white hotspots and examines the animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white, including shark expert Michael Rutzen, who openly scuba dives among them. September 2-November 26.

Magali Reus, Bill Bollinger, John Divola - Andrea Rosen Gallery 2
Through December 06, 2014 - New York

This three-person exhibition presents the works of Magali Reus, with Bill Bollinger’s Graphite Piece (1969) and photographs from John Divola’s Dark Star Series. Approximating the scale and basic materiality of fridge-freezer appliances and cooking pots, Magali Reus’ Lukes and Dregs sculptures are relegated to archeological status and play out in materially luxurious compositions that puzzle human relationships to inanimate matter and their function. Shown together with Bollinger and Divola’s works, each strengthening a material vernacular, this juxtaposition of trajectories is a way to not only contextualize work being made now within the established field of contemporary art, but also a way of showing how artists like Divola and Bollinger remain a vital part of the discourse.

Michael St. John, Borna Sammack, Martha Rosler - Andrea Rosen Gallery
Through December 06, 2014 - New York

Andrea Rosen Gallery is pleased to present a three-person show of Michael St. John, Borna Sammak and Martha Rosler that investigates transition, transformation, documentation and representation. Taking city as site, while all artists look to and pull from the urban and cultural landscape, they each hold completely unique territories and trajectories of their own. Here, the juxtaposition of three artists, of distinct bodies of work, is about perceiving each more deeply and reading into each in a more complex way through differentiation, rather than similarity. Presented together, the works reveal something more significant about the world in which we live as well as the political and social climate of our time.

Early American Guitars: The Instruments of C. F. Martin - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through December 07, 2014 - New York

Christian Frederick Martin, founder of the great American guitar firm C. F. Martin & Co., was the son of a cabinetmaker in Markneukirchen, Saxony. Martin learned to build instruments from the famed Johann Georg Stauffer in Vienna. Due to the restrictive guilds in Markneukirchen, Martin moved to the United States in 1833, settling first in New York City and later moving to Nazareth, Pennsylvania. In the United States, Martin encountered the Spanish-style guitar and incorporated elements from that tradition into his own Viennese style of instrument construction. The result was a new form of the guitar, a style that would become important as a basis for other American makers of the instrument. This exhibition includes approximately thirty-five instruments from the Martin Museum in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and several private collections.

Stuffscapes - Pelham Art Center
Through December 20, 2014 - Pelham

Stuffscapes, a six-person outdoor exhibition with sculptures made from diverse materials such as cast metal, repurposed wood, and found objects, demonstrates commitment to material engagement while exploring a dialog of personal and cultural significance of the sculptural object. Stuffscapes is a six-person outdoor sculpture exhibition in the courtyard. The six sculptors, David Alban, Margaret Coleman, Stephen Eakin, Liz Ensz, Coral Lambert, and James Lentz each present a new sculpture that explores the significance of an object in relationship to permanence and temporality, our cultural perspective on the environment, and the materials we use. From cast metal to repurposed wood and found objects, the show reflects a broad span of materials exploring the continuum from which all manmade materials are ultimately derived from an organic natural resource. It further explores the relationship between the natural process of geological evolution that creates our natural materials and the artists' interventions that mold and shape them for cultural purposes. With each sculpture, the show strives to present an object of cultural significance that considers the resources we have, and uses them in new and exciting ways. On view through Dec. 20. The opening reception will be part of ArtsFest on Sept. 27, and will include a community aluminum pour organized by the Stuffscapes artists. See the sculptures, meet the artists, carve your own wall tile, and watch it be poured in aluminum. (Cost is $20 to make a tile). Curated by ArtShape Mammoth.

Drawn to Language - Children's Museum of the Arts
Through January 11, 2015 - New York

Description: The Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) is pleased to announce Drawn to Language, on view in the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery. This exhibition brings together emerging and mid-career artists whose work relates to the material qualities of language. In Drawn to Language, words are given visual form. Letters, words, or phrases are transcribed, visualized, verbalized, symbolized, morphed into patterns, scrambled, or even erased. While the works in the exhibition vary conceptually – from amusing to political to philosophical – each work is defined by its use of words to create an image, a deeper meaning, or both. Visual artists have long been interested in the intersection between art and language. From ancient calligraphy to illuminated manuscripts, some of our oldest surviving texts are an amalgamation of these two forms of communication. Visual artists can be “drawn to language” in a variety of ways. Whether used for additional emphasis, to define pure meaning, to further a narrative, or simply to make a joke, language is an increasingly important element in visual art. The artists in this exhibition use new materials, processes and techniques to entice the viewer to examine language in new ways. Artists on view: Adam Ames, Erik Den Breejen, Anne Lise Coste, Jenny Holzer, Samual Jablon, Jack Pierson, Michael Scoggins, Gary Simmons, Leah Singer, and Hank Willis Thomas

Strutting in its sapphire-blue and emerald-green feathers, the peacock symbolizes all things vain and beautiful in centuries of painting and sculpture, in books and myth, and on clothes that swirl and shine like the iridescent bird itself. Intrigued by the exotic art of Asia that prized and portrayed the peacock, Western artists and craftsmen chose the peacock as a multi-faceted motif for designs on canvas and for objets d'art in the home. The Hudson River Museum presents Strut: The Peacock and Beauty in Art from October 11, 2014 through January 18, 2015. Organized by the museum, it is the first scholarly survey of the peacock in art. Paintings and decorative objects for the home present concepts of beauty symbolized by the luxurious bird and its famous fan of feathers, from the 19th-century's Gilded Age and 1920s Art Nouveau and Art Deco, until Modernism's ethos of "less is more" caused a brief decline in the peacock's popularity. As the contemporary art world re-embraces beauty in a new "Gilded Age," the peacock struts its way back into the art world. Among the highlights of The Peacock in Beauty and Art are images of women bedecked in peacock feathers, such as Robert Henri's full-length portrait of Ruth St. Denis in the Peacock Dance, 1913; William Baxter Palmer Closson's Feeding the Peacocks, 1910; and Aubrey Beardsley's The Peacock Skirt, created for Oscar Wilde's Salome. The bird itself receives its own glamorous portraits in paintings like Louis Rhead's Peacocks, 1897; Jesse Arms Botkes' Black Peacock, c. 1930; and sculptures like Anna Hyatt Huntington's Peacocks Fighting, 1914. Peacock feathers are extracted into beguiling geometric patterns in the lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany and gilded Crown Derby porcelains. The peacock also appears to whimsical effect in parade costumes, pictures of Elvis, strutting peacock-style, and images of silent-era Hollywood starlets ready for their close-ups. The peacock's origins as a bird of the Indian jungles comes to the fore in Charles R. Knight's (famed for his murals at the American Museum of Natural History) fearsome Bengal Tiger and Peacock, 1928. Contemporary artists show the peacock's gift of line: Laura Ball, Barbara Takenaga, and Federico Uribe find inspiration in the bird's striking feathers, brilliant coloration, and the sensuous s-curves of its body. Two Westchester-based artists highlighted in the show are Tricia Wright from Irvington, and Dillon Lundeen Goldschlag from Tarrytown. The exhibition includes works from more than three dozen museums, galleries, and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and Yale Center for British Art. Bartholomew F. Bland, the museum's director of curatorial affairs, and Laura L. Vookles, chief curator of collections, are co-curators for the exhibition, which is accompanied by a fully illustrated 200-page catalogue co-published by the museum and Fordham University Press, and distributed nationally by Oxford University Press. The exhibition and the accompanying catalog have been made possible by a generous grant from the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Inc.

A Collection of Ideas - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through February 28, 2015 - New York

Museums are defined by their collections, each with a unique point of view that is carefully shaped by curators, who remain mindful of historical precedents as they look ahead to future developments. At the time of The Museum of Modern Art's founding, in 1929, the terms "modern" and "contemporary" coincided effortlessly. Since then, MoMA curators have sought to distill a timeless ideal of visual presence and meaning from different circumstances, all the while revising and reconsidering the initial paradigms of modern art. In the Department of Architecture and Design, the result of this collective, at times subjective, effort is not just a catalog of objects, but is rather a collection of ideas supported by objects. Several of the ideas and themes developed in the past are still actively discussed, but contemporary curators also regularly identify new concepts worth exploring and representing in the collection. This installation focuses on works designed during the last few decades that have been acquired by the Museum not only because they met aesthetic and functional standards that are worthy of our collection, but also because they introduce new categories of investigation and new design forms. The galleries feature clusters of acquisitions that tackle, for instance, the relationship between design and violence; new expressions of organic design in response to environmental and societal disruptions; and the increasing importance of interaction design, as seen in 13 video games new to the collection.

Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power - The Jewish Museum
Through March 22, 2015 - New York

The first museum exhibition to explore the ideas, innovations, and enduring influence of the legendary cosmetics entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965). By the time of her death, Rubinstein had risen from humble origins in small-town Jewish Poland to become a global icon - the head of a cosmetics empire extending across four continents. She was the first modern self-made woman magnate, an avatar of female entrepreneurship, and a tastemaker in the worlds of art, fashion, and design. The exhibition will explore how Helena Rubinstein - as a businesswoman, arts patron, and one of the leading collectors of African and Oceanic art of her time - helped break down the status quo of taste by blurring boundaries between commerce, art, fashion, beauty, and design.

100 Years in Post-Production: Resurrecting a Lost Landmark of Black Film History - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through March 31, 2015 - New York

New York producers Klaw & Erlanger mounted their untitled project at virtually the same time that D. W. Griffith began his racist epic "The Birth of a Nation," but they abandoned the seven reels of exposed film in postproduction, leaving buried within it unique photographic documentation of its black cast and white crew on the set. Starring the legendary Caribbean American musical theater performer and recording artist Bert Williams (1874-1922), the abandoned film also includes Harlem-based entertainment pioneers Sam Lucas, Abbie Mitchell, and J. Leubrie Hill, along with members of his Darktown Follies stage company. Blending minstrel and contemporary performance styles in its telling of recycled race narratives, the work documents the effort by a community of virtuoso performers to achieve increased visibility in a time of segregation. Using a series of digital moving-image excerpts from the 35mm camera negative and still frames recovered from the unassembled material, this premiere installation stages a close reading of suppressed moments from the struggle for minority access to visual media.

Mao's Golden Mangoes and the Cultural Revolution - China Institute
Through April 26, 2015 - New York

During the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), China was in a political "mango fever." In 1968, after receiving a gift of mangoes from the visiting Pakistani foreign minister, Mao Zedong sent the fruit to the "Worker-Peasant Mao Zedong Thought Propaganda Teams." It coincided with a turning point in the Cultural Revolution from student-leading to worker-peasant-leading. Mangoes, an unfamiliar fruit at that time in China, became a temporary political symbol of Chairman Mao's benevolence and love for the people. Illustrations and photos of mangoes appeared in publications, paintings, posters and badges, as well as on everyday objects such as mirrors, quilt covers and enamelware. Wax mango models were displayed in glass boxes to express respect for Mao, along with circumstances of the gift printed in red on the cases. By showcasing over 80 mango-related objects, "Mao's Golden Mangoes and the Cultural Revolution" explores the interaction of material culture and politics during this period.

Revolution! Works from the Black Arts Movement - Brooklyn Museum
Through May 03, 2015 - Brooklyn

During the late sixties and seventies, the Black Arts Movement sprung up in the U.S. as the cultural expression of Black Power politics. Its leadership, which included poets, playwrights, musicians, and fine artists, rejected the dominance of the largely white mainstream art establishments that undervalued their work as black artists and created a radical alternative artistic movement based on social and political ideologies rather than narrow aesthetic dictates. In 2012, the Brooklyn Museum acquired forty-four works of art from the Black Arts Movement. Revolution! Works from the Black Arts Movement displays seven of these works from seven different artists. The strong and vibrant images on exhibit are a testament to the stylistic scope of the Black Arts Movement.

Through May 31, 2015 - Katonah

Yellow Orb/Homage to Van Gogh, created by sculptor John Ruppert specifically for the Katonah Museum of Art campus, will be on view on the front lawn of the KMA. Ruppert transforms prison-grade chain link fabric into large, vessel-like forms. Chain link typically connotes danger and boundaries; it is a commercial product intended to confine, protect, and keep out. The material reflects the urban environs of Ruppert's Baltimore studio, and is one that the artist often employs for his sculptures. The industrial fencing is an unexpected element in the bucolic landscape of the Katonah Museum of Art. Also surprising is its intense yellow color, which is luminous and joyful. The woven wire mesh creates shifting optical patterns that animate the work in surprising ways. On view through May 31, 2015. The Katonah Museum of Art (KMA), located at 134 Jay St. (Route 22) in Katonah, NY, is a cultural destination offering changing exhibitions that feature art from all cultures and time periods.

Located at the northern end of Katonah's "Museum Mile" just off of Route 22, and neighboring John Jay Homestead and Caramoor, the Katonah Museum of Art is a two-minute taxi ride from the Katonah Metro North train station. The KMA offers lectures, workshops, concerts, and other events for a general audience, as well as innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. The Learning Center is an interactive space where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Among the many programs for children and families are Stroller Tours, Family Days, Saturday Story Time, Schools Out/Arts In vacation day programs, and art classes for children ages 3-12. The Museum's innovative Arte Juntos/Art Together program for new immigrant families has been recognized as a model program by the federal government.
