CHIMAIRA - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
November 03, 2011 - New York

Hailing from Cleveland, OH, the rock outfit Chimaira mixes hardcore, metal, and electronics to create a distinctive sound that has won the band legions of fans. Starting out opening for bands like Soulfly, Spineshank, and Snapcase, the band eventually released its debut full-length album, Pass Out Existence, on the Roadrunner imprint in 2001. Subsequent albums on the label included The Impossibility of Reason (2003) and a 2005 eponymous release. Although internal problems, label changes, and membership shifts created tumult for the band in the ensuing years, the group still managed to release Resurrection in 2007 and The Infection in 2009. Now, after traveling a road fraught with adversity, Chimaira advances its trademarked brand of heavy metal with its latest monster, The Age of Hell (2011). With this album, the eclipse of what you thought you knew about contemporary metal has begun. There is a new definition announced by distorted yet familiar faces. With this album, Chimaira will take you through The Age of Hell. Let's hope you are prepared.

Talk to Me: Design and the Communication between People and Objects - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through November 07, 2011 - New York

Talk to Me explores the communication between people and things. All objects contain information that goes well beyond their immediate use or appearance. In some cases, objects like cell phones and computers exist to provide us with access to complex systems and networks, behaving as gateways and interpreters. Whether openly and actively, or in subtle, subliminal ways, things talk to us, and designers help us develop and improvise the dialogue. The exhibition focuses on objects that involve a direct interaction, such as interfaces, information systems, visualization design, and communication devices, and on projects that establish an emotional, sensual, or intellectual connection with their users. Examples range from a few iconic products of the late 1960s to several projects currently in development—including computer and machine interfaces, websites, video games, devices and tools, furniture and physical products, and extending to installations and whole environments. The Department of Architecture and Design is documenting the process of organizing Talk to Me from its early stages through its opening in July 2011 and beyond via an online journal. The site features projects we are currently studying and some we have already selected, along with relevant references and feedback and suggestions from designers and writers. Since we always cast our nets very wide and count on suggestions and opinions from the design community, this step comes very naturally. Besides, communication is what this exhibition is all about.

Martin Wittfooth: The Passions - Lyons Wier Gallery
Through November 12, 2011 - New York

“The Passions” - October 13 - November 12, 2011; Artist’s Reception: Thursday, October 13, 2011, 6-8pm. Lyons Wier Gallery - 542 West 24th St., New York, NY 10011. Gallery Hours: Tues - Sat, 11-6pm. Nearest subway: C,E @ 23rd St & 8th Ave. “It is well for his peace that the saint goes to his martyrdom. He is spared the sight of the horror of his harvest.” – Oscar Wilde The Passions, Martin Wittfooth’s first solo show in New York, is a contemporary exploration of sainthood, martyrdom, and religiosity that still dominates the ideological landscape of the modern world, and displays the prerequisite acts most often performed to attain various states of veneration such as violence, self-sacrifice, and suffering. In Western philosophy, “The Passions” refer to strong biologically driven emotional states that seduce one away from reason. Yet the term’s origin is to be found in the Latin word, “passio”, which means, simply, “suffering”. Consequently, the term is connected to the most famous act of martyrdom: the crucifixion of Christ. Devotional paintings and sculptures from the last millennia have presented us with multitudes of examples in which “The Passions”, in both their original and more carnal manifestations, make simultaneous appearances. Wittfooth gleaned inspiration for The Passions from devotional artwork from different parts and eras in Europe, most notably the 17th & 18th century Flemish masters, from various versions of the Pieta and the sculptures of Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680). Wittfooth successfully emulates the iconography of old but his meticulous paintings are laced with symbolism and allusions to contemporary themes, issues, and fears. The artist states, “a reflection on such beliefs as the Rapture or Islamic jihad will compel one to admit that this archaic combination is yet alive and well in our modern age. By exploring the double-meaning of intellectual desertion and fatal suffering still upheld and glorified by faith, The Passions offers a criticism of blind, destructive piety.” Although void of the human form, Wittfooth represents mankind via the man-made and/or manufactured landscapes that are so prevalent to the vocabulary of his work. Animals are the main subjects in Wittfooth’s paintings, serving as symbolic representatives or bystanders of the dangerous, destructive and sometime absurd ramifications of religious devotion. By engaging both the eye and the mind of the viewer, this “Conceptual Realism” sets forth an invitation to enjoy not only the aesthetic deftness of the work, but also the political and conceptual content of the composition. Martin Wittfooth received his MFA from The School of Visual Arts in New York City and has exhibited extensively in North America and Europe. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including cover features in books and magazines such as New American Paintings and Hi Fructose. Martin Wittfooth lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

15th Annual Get Crackin’ Crabfest Menu Back at London Lennie’s - London Lennie's
Through November 13, 2011 - Rego Park

15th Annual Get Crackin’ Crabfest Menu Back at London Lennie’s - Queens’ King of Fish Travels to Alaska, Delivers 8LB FRESH Crabs From Crate to Plate - Scheduled to step fresh off the boat from Alaska this fall, London Lennie’s culinary team, led by seafood expert and restaurateur Leslie Barnes, is not coming home empty handed! Just like last year’s trip to Alaska, the London Lennie’s fishermen will transport eight pound tender crabs from crate to plate and serve up hand-picked, succulent crab on London Lennie’s 15th Annual Get Crackin’ Crabfest Menu which debuts on October 17th and available through November 13th. Over 1.5 million tons of crab is consumed across the world each year, however, most diners never get to savor the true flavor of fresh crabmeat straight from the sea. London Lennies’ specialty menu will carry the crabulous flavor of fresh Alaskan King Crab to Queens, so city diners don’t need to travel cross continent to get their fix. Guests can select from six different species of crab, including Live Blue Claw, Live Dungeness Crab, Fresh Alaskan Crab, Fresh Jonah Crab, Fresh Stone Crab and Canadian Snow Crab, on the extensive menu which offers over 20 crab-filled dishes such as Jonah crabmeat quesadilla, crabmeat stuffed mushrooms and steamed crab and shrimp dumplings. “Even though four million crabs per year are pulled from the ocean, it’s nearly impossible to get your hands on a fresh crab in New York City. All city seafood lovers have to do is crawl to Queens!” comments London Lennie’s owner, Leslie Barnes. Also back by popular demand is the Bloody Lennie “Crabfest Style” cocktail. London Lennies’ twist on the traditional Bloody Mary combines their famous Bloody Mary mix and Stolichnaya Vodka and is garnished with a skewer of jumbo lump crabmeat. Offered throughout the crab season, the Bloody Lennie “Crabfest Style” will be available at the bar and in the dining room for $11. Highlights from this year’s crabtastic menu include: Appetizers - Jonah Crabmeat Quesadilla, caramelized onions, monetary jack cheese, roasted poblano chiles and smokey guacamole; Crabmeat Stuffed Mushrooms Trio, Dungeness crab, Jonah crab & blue claw crab Steamed Crab and Shrimp Dumplings, two sauces. Entrees - East Coast “Maryland Style” Blue Crab, steamed with “Old Bay” seasoning or garlic Jumbo Lump Crabmeat “Au Gratin”, 8 oz. jumbo lump crabmeat, sautéed onions and reggiano cheese in a crab-infused béchamel sauce baked till golden brown - Steamed Mixed Grab Bag, for those who can’t decide-comes with Alaskan king crab, ½ Dungeness crab, & blue crab - Jumbo Florida Stone Crab (1lb.), steamed and served with drawn butter - Alaskan King Crab (1lb.), steamed and served with drawn butter - Alaskan King Crab Clusters 2#, steamed and served with drawn butter. Specialty Drinks - Bloody Lennie “Crabfest Style”, Stolichnaya Vodka, London Lennie’s famous bloody mary mix, and garnished with a skewer of jumbo lump crabmeat.

Carlito Carvalhosa: Sum of Days - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through November 14, 2011 - New York

Brazilian artist Carlito Carvalhosa (b. 1961) conceived Sum of Days as an environmental and participatory sound installation—a monumental, voluminous construction made of soft, white, translucent material that hangs from ceiling to floor and takes the shape of an elliptical labyrinth. This structure hides, or interrupts, the defined limits of its surrounding architectural space, suspending visitors' spatial references and allowing an experience of total immersion. A system of microphones hangs from various heights and records the day's ambient noise, which is played back the following day through several speakers. Each day a new recording is superimposed over the previous one, gradually dimming the oldest sounds into a layer of whispers. Adding yet another element of sound will be periodic musical performances from within the installation. The accumulation of these recordings will constitute an immaterial layering of time—an auditory memory of the accidental noise inherent in everyday experience. This marks the artist's first exhibition in the United States. Musical performances, each 60 to 90 minutes long, take place weekly within the installation between September 8 and November 10. The performers are Lisa Bielawa, David Crowell, Jon Gibson, Philip Glass, Carla Kihlstedt, Michael Riesman, Mick Rossi, and Andrew Sterman. Times are announced via MoMA's Twitter account (@MuseumModernArt) on the day of the event.

Art Gallery Opening: Photography of Jadina Lilien: BUTTERFLY AGAINST THE WIND - The New York Open Center Gallery
Through November 19, 2011 - New York

Photography of JADINA LILIEN | BUTTERFLY AGAINST THE WIND: Remembering the Spirit of the Lakota. Opening Reception - Saturday, October 15, 2011 | 5:30- 8PM. Exhibition Dates - October 15 - November 19, 2011. Butterfly Against the Wind is based on the artist/filmmaker, Jadina Lililen’s impressions of being in South Dakota on the Cheyenne River Reservation. At the invitation of Tiokasin Ghosthorse, (WBAI Radio in NYC: First Voices). Lilien was invited to take photographs on this reservation where he grew up. The work made during this period, a series of digital pigment prints that utilize a multimedia photographic process, is a direct result from the artist’s time spent during these visits. The photographs incorporate the time bound documented images of the romanticized Indian and the present day conditions of the reservation. There are varying degrees of adding additional painting or “mark making” to the photographs. This process at times can be almost undetectable, enabling the image to be clearly visible, or at times, selectively obscuring the image and creating a new narrative.

SEASCAPE WITH SHARKS AND DANCER follows the relationship between Ben (Lombardo) and Tracy (Gardiner).

Their verbal sparring turns to flirtation and Ben is charmed by Tracy in spite of herself. The two become lovers but when Tracy moves in, the off-beat romance takes a dysfunctional turn. “Its boy meets girl turned on its head,” says Lombardo, who in addition to starring as Ben also serves as artistic director for Look at the Fish Theatre. “She's got some dreadful behavior that masks inner troubles.” Ben and Tracy begin a battle to marry love with trust. “I think the relationship is more true to life than any other human relationship in theatre,” says Lombardo. “There’s uncertainty and they do awful things, but they still love each other.”
