The Big Apple Circus presents a special show for vision- and hearing-impaired audience members, free of charge. Gather beneath the Big Apple Circus's Big Top tent at Damrosch Park to experience the magic and joy of the Circus of the Senses. The unique performance, presented without charge for the 27th consecutive season, is accomplished by providing headsets to children with vision impairments to hear a lively, running description of the action in the ring narrated by Big Apple Circus founder Paul Binder and Karen McCarty, creative director of Big Apple Circus health and community programs. Spotlighted American Sign Language interpreters narrate the show to the hearing–impaired. Large-print, Braille programs are available for the vision-impaired and scripts are sent to groups in advance of the performance to help them prepare for their Big Top experience. Prior to the performance, volunteers bring costume fabrics and other materials and props for sight–impaired children in the audience to feel, to help them better understand the show as it is being audio described. Following the hour-long performance, a group of sight–impaired children will be invited into the ring for a "touch session." They will be able to feel the sawdust, touch the fabric of the elegant costumes, and meet some of the performers--both the two–legged and the four–legged ones. According to artistic director Guillaume Dufresnoy, the Big Apple Circus "allows children and adults with significant challenges to experience the performing arts in a meaningful and compelling way. Circus of the Senses exemplifies the circus's commitment to the community and its capacity to transcend the boundaries represented by language, age, culture, and physical ability."

Through November 02, 2014 - New York

Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness, a major survey of one of the most influential artists working in the photographic medium, confirms Christopher Williams's (American, b. 1956) status as one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking artists of his generation, one whose interests in his generational elders is mirrored by the impact he is currently having on younger artists. In a career spanning nearly 30 years, Williams has explored the realms of photojournalism, picture archives, mass media, and commercial imaging, producing a concise oeuvre of photographs that carries an outsized impact on artists and cultural historians today. Deeply invested in the history of photography as a medium of art and intellectual inquiry, he is committed to furthering a critique of late capitalist society, in which images typically function as agents of consumer spectacle. Williams is currently professor of photography at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, a position previously held by Thomas Ruff, Jeff Wall (fleetingly), and -- for 20 illustrious years -- Bernd Becher.
