Susie Essman - Gotham Comedy Club
April 11, 2013 - New York

Susie Essman has played the sassy Susie Greene for all seven seasons of the critically-acclaimed HBO comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Her hilarious bouts of withering sarcasm and uninhibited insults have become her character's trademark. The Los Angeles Times calls Susie, "The most lyrical purveyor of profanity on television. She makes the entire cast of "The Sopranos" look like rank amateurs. It really is a gift." The New York Times called Susie "one of the most vivid characters in the show, whose off-color tantrums have become an audience favorite the way Kramer's clumsy entrances once were". The New York Observer (which calls her "fantastic") says "she's taken female cursing to longshoreman levels, pummeling her bumbling, barrel-bodied husband with potty-mouthed invectives like 'You fat fuck!'". Susie's streetwise vernacular is perfectly suited for her life in Manhattan where she has been a veteran of the world of stand up comedy for twenty-five years. She has appeared in her own half-hour HBO comedy special, made numerous appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The View, and Crank Yankers, to name just a few of her many television credits. She has also acted in numerous films, most recently costarring with John Travolta as the voice of Mittens the Cat in the Disney animated movie Bolt. And now Susie adds published author to her list of accomplishments. This fall her book "What Would Susie Say – Bullshit Wisdom Wisdom About Love, Life and Comedy" was published by Simon & Schuster. Susie divides her time between New York City and upstate New York where she lives with her husband, four step-children, and two dogs.

Nederlands Dans Theater - The Joyce Theater
Through April 12, 2013 - New York

Nederlands Dans Theater's magnificent dancers perform an evening of two visually startling and provocative pieces created by co-choreographers Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot. Intimately connected, each explores the nature of love. Set to powerfully beautiful Beethoven works -- Piano Concertos Nos. 3 and 4 and to excerpts from Symphony No. 5 -- Sehnsucht (translated as "yearning") begins with two dancers hovering in a cube-like room. At various times, the room spins, turning the side walls into the ceiling and floor, and then the other way around. This spinning room, with the man and woman trapped inside it, serves as a metaphor for an intense love that is both intimate and claustrophic. As more dancers take the stage, this metaphor is extended throughout the piece. The evening concludes with Schmetterling (translated as "butterfly"). A perfect companion piece to Sehnsucht, this work also examines the nature of love, this time perhaps in its most basic form -- that between mother and child. Set to the cynical love songs by indie pop group Magnetic Fields and British composer Max Richter, Schmetterling replaces the melancholy of Sehnsucht with a sly, somewhat humorous take on love.

Shoe Obsession examines our culture's ever-growing fascination with extravagant and fashionable shoes. Accessories used to be just that?secondary to clothing fashions.

Shoe Obsession features over 150 examples of the most extraordinary shoe styles of the 21st-century, highlighting the new concepts, constructions, materials, and types of embellishment that have positioned shoes at the height of fashion. The popularity of designer shoes has grown rapidly. The television series Sex in the City, which was broadcast from 1998 to 2004, is often credited with helping to launch the cult for designer shoes. Who can forget Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo Blahnik pumps ? or her assertion of "a woman's right to shoes." Blahnik's popularity paved the way for other high-end shoe designers, a number of whom have become celebrities in their own right.

Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925 - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 15, 2013 - New York

In 1912, in several European cities, a handful of artists -- Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Francis Picabia, and Robert Delaunay -- presented the first abstract pictures to the public. Inventing Abstraction, 1910-25 celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork, tracing the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. The exhibition brings together many of the most influential works in abstraction's early history and covers a wide range of artistic production, including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, films, photographs, sound poems, atonal music, and non-narrative dance, to draw a cross-media portrait of these watershed years.

If you are looking for an exhibition that celebrates the diversity and visual delights of the world, and reflects the spring feeling of growth and life, come to Agora Gallery for three great exhibitions. In Landscapes of the Mind, artists bring all of their interests and ideas together to create works that illuminate both aspects of the world itself and the ways in which we interact with them.

In addition, a breath of air and a sense of barely contained energy emanates from the works of Dick Perez: a solo exhibition of baseball's finest. The artist has portrayed the stars of the baseball world as official artist to prestigious institutions such as the Philadelphia Phillies and the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the passion he has for both the game and for art are clearly demonstrated in his thrilling works. The exhibitions open on March 26, 2013 and run until April 16, 2013. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday, April 4, 2013. Entrance is free and art lovers are warmly encouraged to attend to meet some of the artists who created these delightful works of art.

RISE - Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios
Through April 20, 2013 - New York

RISE is an opera-infused play intertwining the tale of Rome's most infamous anarchist Emperor with the extravagant ambition of four modern-day misfits. In a decaying Roman Empire, debauchery and ruthlessness are de rigueur, but Boy-King Elagabalus's excesses and flagrant disregard for religious tradition and sexual taboos shocks even the most callous citizens. Placed on the throne by the conniving machinations of his mother and grandmother, Elagabalus marries a sacred Vestal Virgin, skewers the national religion, and flaunts his exploits with men and women of all classes. On the outskirts of LA, aspirations run high. Brick Richards has been a top player in porn for ten years, and his manager Myrna Malone desperately wants to convince him to transition to mainstream movies before his star fades. Myrna's assistant Glenn wants something different from Brick: a great, sweeping romance to make life complete. Glenn's roommate Mia doesn't care about sweeping romances, she just wants to achieve her dream of launching the next big cosmetics line, and maybe Myrna or Brick can make that happen? Through human history, one conflict is timeless: when personal ambition eclipses all other considerations, crossed desires lead to double crossing.

The Shaping of New Visions: Photography, Film, Photobook - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through April 21, 2013 - Midtown

This exhibition, covering the period from 1910 to today, offers a critical reassessment of photography's role in the avant-garde and neo-avant-garde movements -- with a special emphasis on the medium's relation to Dada, Bauhaus, Surrealism, Constructivism, New Objectivity, Conceptual, and Post-Conceptual art -- and in the development of contemporary artistic practices. The shaping of what came to be known as "New Vision" photography bore the obvious influence of "lens-based" and "time-based" works. El Lissitzky best summarized its ethos: "The new world will not need little pictures," he wrote in The Conquest of Art (1922). "If it needs a mirror, it has the photograph and the cinema." Bringing together over 250 works from MoMA's collection, the exhibition features major projects by Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Germaine Krull, Gerhard Ruhm, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, Robert Heinecken, Ed Ruscha, Martha Rosler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, and Walid Raad, among others. Photographic history is presented as a multivalent history of distinct "new visions," rooted in unconventional and innovative exercises that range from photograms and photomontages to experimental films and photobooks.

Through April 21, 2013 - New York

The Guggenheim's recent acquisition of 20 works from a major series of pin drawings from 1975 to 1977 serves as a fulcrum for the New York presentation, which is conceived in close collaboration with the artist. An exhibition catalogue provides insights into her life and work. The New York presentation is organized by Sandhini Poddar, Associate Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

In 2003 the Metropolitan Museum acquired a significant group of paintings spanning a key period in European history, beginning with the advent of the French Revolution and concluding with the reign of Louis-Philippe. Assembled by the New York connoisseur Wheelock Whitney between 1972 and 2000, this collection reveals a rich tradition of painting out of doors nearly a century before Impressionism, thus amplifying the role of the natural world as a source of inspiration to artists on the cusp of the modern epoch.

Through April 21, 2013 - New York
