SAGA - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

One of Canada's most successful progressive rock bands, Saga has built up a loyal audience for its sophisticated music. Originally known as The Pockets, the quintet formed in 1977 from the nucleus of popular Canadian rock band Fludd. In June 1978, the band released its self-titled debut album. A modest success in Canada, it would eventually sell over 30,000 copies in Germany as an import. The band's 1979 follow-up Images at Twilight spawned the group's first hit in Canada with the lead single "It's Time," peaking at No. 84 in the Canadian Charts. Saga's subsequent string of releases throughout the first half of the '80s enjoyed critical acclaim, and the single "On the Loose" from Worlds Apart (1981) saw the band break through into the American music scene. Subsequent American hits included "Wind Him Up" and "The Flyer."

Seth Lutnick: Sinatra and The Rabbi - Don't Tell Mama
September 05, 2012 - New York

Frank Sinatra and The Broadway Rabbi Seth Lutnick is an unusual mix. On the one hand, he is an Orthodox rabbi. On the other, he does musical theater. Hence, his stage persona is The Broadway Rabbi. Lutnick will be visiting from Israel, where he directs Israel Musicals, an English language musical theater company, for a performance of his new show, Frankly Sinatra. Frank Sinatra was a bullied, somewhat awkward kid from Hoboken, NJ, an unlikely star. And yet, he became the biggest there was! He had The World on a String, and he found his way into the hearts of, well, everybody. How did he get there? What were his wrong turns, and his right ones? And what about Sinatra, Israel and the Jews? Accompanied by pianist Dan Feyer, this is not an impersonation of Frank Sinatra, but a journey through his life and songs, with Rabbinical commentary. Wednesday, September 5th, 7PM at Don't Tell Mama, 343 W. 46th St, New York City. There is an $18 cover charge, and a two drink minimum.

Gilded Age Magic - Hudson River Museum
Through September 09, 2012 - Yonkers

Modern stage magic has its roots in the Gilded Age showmanship of Harry Keller (1849-1922), who performed around the world but made Yonkers his home between tours. With his theatrical spectacles, Keller founded a "Royal Dynasty" of American magicians including Harry Houdini (1874-1926), a friend and colleague of Keller's later years, and Howard Thurston (1869-1936), with whom Keller toured at the end of his career. These modern magicians cultivated a debonair stage persona that set them apart from earlier traveling sideshow artists, who dressed and posed as traditional Chinese conjurers. Despite the supernatural imagery on their posters, these magicians were not occultists but entertainers. Part of their audience appeal was the mystery of how their illusions were accomplished, not any claims to supernatural powers. The exhibition will feature vintage theatrical posters, costumes, and magic ephemera from little-seen private collections, as well as planned performances in the galleries by local magician Benjamin Levy and others. Through September 9.

Naked before the Camera - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through September 09, 2012 -

Since the beginning of art and in every medium, depicting the human body has been among the artist's greatest challenges and supreme achievements, as can so easily be seen by Museum visitors walking through the galleries of Greek and Roman statuary, African and Oceanic art, Old Master paintings, or Indian sculpture. Tapping veins of mythology, carnal desire, hero worship, and aesthetic pleasure, depictions of the nude have also triggered impassioned discussions of sin and sexuality, cultural identity, and canons of beauty. Controversies are often aroused even more intensely when the artist's chosen medium is photography, with its accuracy and specificity -- when a real person stood naked before the camera -- rather than traditional media where more generalized and idealized forms prevail. In the medium's early days -- particularly in France, where Victorian notions of propriety held less sway than in England and America, and where life drawing was a central part of artistic training -- photographs proved to be a cheap and easy substitute for the live model. While serving painters and sculptors, many nineteenth-century photographic nudes were also intended as works of art in their own right. Still others bore the title "artist's study" merely to evade government censors and legitimize images that were, in fact, more likely intended to stir a gentleman's loins than to enhance his aesthetic endeavors. Outside the realms of art and erotica, photographic nudes were made to aid the study of anatomy, movement, forensics, and ethnography. In twentieth-century art, the body became a vehicle for surreal and modernist manipulation and for intimate odes to beauty or poems to a muse. Beginning with the sexual revolution of the 1960s, nudity and its representation took on new meanings -- as declarations of freedom from societal strictures, as assertions of individual identity, as explorations of sexuality and gender roles, and as responses to AIDS. Naked before the Camera surveys the history of this subject and examines some of the motivations and meanings that underlie its expression.

Museum as Hub: Carlos Motta: We Who Feel Differently - New Museum
Through September 09, 2012 - New York

Through an exhibition, series of events, and an opening symposium, the project seeks to invigorate discussion around a queer "We" that looks beyond tolerance or assimilation toward a concept of equality that provides for greater personal freedom. The project draws from Motta's evolving database documentary wewhofeeldifferently.info, which proposes "difference" as a profound mode of possibility for both solidarity and self-determination.

Through September 09, 2012 -

As part of its summer program of sculpture exhibitions in the Gilbert Court, the Morgan will present three major sculptures by renowned abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly. Spare and elegant, Kelly's free-standing totemic forms -- one in bronze, the other two in mahogany and redwood -- exude the same quiet and spectacular beauty as his better-known, brightly colored paintings.

Raw Cooked: Ulrike Muller - Brooklyn Museum
Through September 09, 2012 -

The fifth exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series presents the work of Sunset Park-based artist Ulrike Muller. With the goal of starting a conversation on the lesbian feminist movement and examining the visibility of queer bodies within mainstream culture and the Museum, Muller orchestrated a collaborative drawing project based on the inventory list of the feminist T-shirt collection at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She distributed textual T-shirt descriptions to feminists, queer artists, and other interested New Yorkers, and asked that they translate these texts into new images. Her exhibition includes one hundred drawings from this project. Additionally, she used symbolic lesbian, feminist, and queer terms from the inventory as search criteria to mine the Museum's online collection. Through the display of approximately one hundred of the collaborative drawings and nearly twenty-five Museum collection objects in the Luce Center for American Art's Elevator Lobby and elsewhere in the Museum, Muller creates a visual dialogue among contemporary queer culture, the Museum, and the history of feminist activism. Muller graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. She was recommended for Raw/Cooked by advisory board member Amy Sillman. Raw/Cooked is organized by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum.

Printers, Monks, & Craftsmen - Bookmaking in the Age of Gutenberg - Museum of Biblical Art
Through September 09, 2012 - New York

This exhibition looks at the transitional period in hand press bookmaking through 14 Bibles printed between 1455 and 1525. Early printed books initially looked to manuscripts to inform page design, typeface, binding, and decorative embellishment. As the era progressed, printers and other craftsmen involved in the production of a printed volume began to experiment with the possibilities handpress production afforded to create innovative, elegant books. Focusing on Gothic bindings and the structure of a selection of books drawn from the Rare Bible Collection @ MOBIA, conservator Clare Manias explores regional differences in the volumes' styles, production, and form illustrating that printed books have stories to tell and are much more than what's between the covers.

The Adoration of the Magi by Bartolo di Fredi - A Masterpiece Reconstructed - Museum of Biblical Art
Through September 09, 2012 - New York

Illustrating one of the most celebrated Renaissance themes, Bartolo di Fredi's (c. 1330-1410) Adoration of the Magi will be reunited in this groundbreaking exhibition. The three known surviving panels of this Siense master's unrivaled altarpiece are considered by many to be among Bartolo's finest works. Composed of a monumental central panel depicting a tender visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, his Crucifixion and the mourning it brings, "Adoration of the Magi" by Bartolo di Fredi: A Masterpiece Reconstructed permits an in-depth study of this oft-depicted Christian narrative. The three altarpiece panels will be on loan from the Pinacoteca of Siena, the Lindenau-Museum in Altenburg Germany, and the University of Virginia Art Museum, the first venue for the exhibition. At the Museum of Biblical Art, Bartolo's altarpiece will be displayed alongside a magnificent version of the Adoration of the Magi which he completed as a standalone work in c. 1390, on loan from The Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as Bartolo's depiction of the Adoration of the Shepherds dating to c. 1374, on loan from The Cloisters. Both paintings will enhance the detailed examination of this master's grand altarpiece.

ReDraw - The Capital Plan for 35 Wooster St - The Drawing Center
Through September 13, 2012 - New York

In December 2010, The Drawing Center launched ReDraw: The Capital Plan for 35 Wooster Street with the purchase of a 2,000-square-foot unit on the second floor of 35 Wooster Street, which will replace its leased space at 40 Wooster Street. Plans for the new space have been designed by Claire Weisz and WXY Architecture + Urban Design, an internationally-recognized New York–based firm. ReDraw's architectural program addresses specific exhibition, educational, and operational requirements, reinforcing The Drawing Center's mission to present the highest-quality cultural programming in galleries proportioned to facilitate a meaningful viewer experience—attributes that have made the institution one of the most respected, beloved, and distinctive non-profits in New York City. The building project will connect the existing ground floor space to the newly-acquired second floor space and the lower level of the building. A new bookstore and a sky-lit Drawing Room gallery will join the existing visitor services desk and Main Gallery on the ground floor level. Offices and administrative spaces will move to the second floor, and the renovated lower level will accommodate a new education room, a Viewing Program meeting room, and the experimental Lab gallery, which will feature an audio and video media system for exhibitions and public programs. Integrating these spaces into one building will provide The Drawing Center with 50% more contiguous programmatic space. The Drawing Center has suspended on-site programming as construction takes place.
