M.I.L.P. (Moms I'd Like to Portray) - Upright Citizens Brigade Theater Chelsea
August 25, 2016 - New York

Did you know that Mom roles make up 98.4%* of all non-porn roles for women in TV, film, and new media? M.I.L.P. (Moms I'd Like to Portray) was inspired by Hollywood’s depiction of moms onscreen and by Carrie’s own fears of real-life motherhood. In M.I.L.P., Carrie tries to join the ranks of Hollywood’s best mom actresses, (Julie Bowen, Patricia Heaton, Lauren Graham) only to find she needs to earn that privilege by successfully portraying a wide range of mom roles. Throughout the show, Carrie plays a series of familiar mom-types: a soccer mom, a dance mom, a working mom, (each with their own comedic twist.) Also sprinkled throughout the show are actual voicemails from Carrie’s actual mom, who is not a comedian, but who steals the show with her unintentionally hilarious recordings. With guest appearances by comedians Eric Gersen and Aaron Jackson. Directed by Hunter Nelson.

ARTIST COLLECTIVE AUDIO/VISUAL EXPLORATION OF BLACK CONTEMPORARY ART TunnelVision and ARTs East New York Presents the Opening Night of the FIVE/5ths Art Show Friday, August 26th, 6:30 - 9:30 PM WHO: ARTs East New York and TunnelVision artists: Geminelle, Musician | Dexter R. Jones, Photographer | Stephen SmallWarner, Fine Art Photographer | Sophia Dawson, Painter | JD Malone, Artist, Founder of TunnelVision | WHAT: Opening Night of FIVE/5ths Art Show WHEN: Friday, August 26, 2016 | 6:30 - 9:30 PM WHERE: ARTs East New York, 534 Livonia Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11207 between Williams Ave and Alabama Ave. WHY: Presented by TunnelVision, five contemporary artists, each spiritual leaders in their own right, have come together to tell the story of FIVE/5ths, an audio/visual exhibition that is meant to offer an alternative perspective on the way we see and appreciate Black art and by extension, ourselves. MEDIA CONTACT: Tye Renwrick-Perry, tye@llubtishmediagroup.com, 484.904.6808 MORE INFORMATION: www.artseastny.org, 718.676.6006 BACKGROUND: Each artist represents a piece of the Black mind -- from the political activists, to the free-spirited wanderers, to the humming voices of song alike -- FIVE/5ths is a testament that all spiritual expression is art and can live harmoniously. Historically, we have been dispersed on more levels than one, walking around this earth in pieces, chained to the idea that we are fractioned. FIVE/5ths, is about ascending to a place where we are now united, a place where we are now whole, a place where we are now one. Artist Talk: Wednesday, September 7, 2016 | 6:00 - 8:00 PM at ARTs East New York, 534 Livonia Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11207 Guerilla Shooters: Saturday, September 17, 2016 |7:00 - 10:00 PM The two founding photographers from Guerilla Shooters, JD Malone and SmallWarner, have been collaborating for over 8 years. As a part of the "FIVE/FIFTHS Tunnelvision Collective Presentation" the pair have decided to produce the event for the shooters in NYC. GS scouts out locations in the city that offers endless creative opportunities. GS brings the subjects, provides the lighting tools and toys. You bring your camera. We provide the ingredients and you make the art, something like a creative’s jam session. After the event, all the photographers who participate are asked to send their top 5 images. From those images the Guerilla Shooters team selects images to be featured on the tumblr page. ABOUT: TunnelVision operates as a gallery and agency that gives visibility to the work of Black Contemporary Artists by uniting art collectors with artists. JD Malone, founder and artist of TunnelVision, saw a need to create a market that supports the emerging Black Contemporary Artists of today thus establishing TunnelVision. ARTs East New York is committed to presenting and promoting multicultural arts to address socioeconomic issues that hinder the growth and development of our community. Our innovative efforts foster entrepreneurs and cultural industries that generate jobs and income, reduce crime and recidivism, heighten the level of education and awareness around healthy and sustainable living, attract tourists to boost local economy and instill pride amongst residents. These initiatives improve livability and encourage economic development outcomes that have the potential to radically change the future of the neighborhood.

The year 1776 is often remembered as the year of “the spirit of ’76.” In reality, it was one of the most difficult years this nation ever faced. Washington lost every major battle and nearly two entire states within five months. Soldiers from nearly every state fought desperately, side by side in a difficult retreat from the East River to the Delaware River. Join Historian Michael J. F. Sheehan as he explores the exciting and heroic campaign that took place in the greater New York area in this illustrated presentation.

Toto - The Town Hall
August 27, 2016 - New York

Toto return in 2015 with an album that could be defined as a realized vision three plus decades in the making. The recordings on TOTO XIV exhibit world-class musicianship, masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary, and melodies that the collective genius of Lukather, Paich, Porcaro, Williams and their assembled band-mates bring to life. This new studio album is arguably the true follow-up to a TOTO IV, which made the band global superstars, and the band's first studio album since Falling In Between (2006). Keyboardist Steve Porcaro reveals, "This is opposite of going through the motions. We are treating this like it is Toto V, our follow-up to TOTO IV. We just want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Be true to ourselves and make the best music we can. Entertain people which is what we were put on this Earth for." Keyboardist David Paich reflects, "I think of TOTO as a unit and a band that carries a responsibility when it goes out there in to the public consciousness. There is so much negativity and darkness that I think you have to be as Quincy Jones puts it, 'beams of light that blast through the darkness'."

NEST Sculpture Installation - St. George Ferry Terminal
Through August 31, 2016 - Staten Island

The Freshkills Park Alliance, New York City Department of Transportation's Art Program, and artist Kirk Finkel present NEST. A collaborative collection of habitats found in Freshkills Park, NEST represents an intersection between the diverse bird population of Staten Island and the dynamic urban environment that surrounds it. NEST is designed to bring Freshkills Park wildlife to the people of New York City while encouraging visitors to experience the park firsthand. The Ferry Terminal is the juncture between tourists and commuters, Staten Island and the rest of NYC, present and future. NEST uses bird boxes as building blocks to create multiple forms and experiences for the viewer. The interactive sculptures provoke several readings about "transformation" through the nesting routines of birds transposed via moving images. Scenes inside the boxes were created from community submissions. This installation asks travelers to pause, reflect and observe the natural world around them and consider the ecological changes at Freshkills Park through social media connections. The installation will be in place for 11 months. The artist will give a talk about the work and his process on September 30, 2015 at 6:30 pm.

Meet the Goats - Prospect Park, Vale of Cashmere
Through August 31, 2016 - Park Slope

The Prospect Park Alliance welcomes a herd of goats to restore woodlands damaged by Hurricane Sandy and other severe storms (including a 2010 tornado!) in the northeast corner of Prospect Park-one of the hardest hit areas, which lost more than 50 trees. In the absence of trees, invasive plants proliferated, damaging habitat and causing erosion. Removing these weeds is a more complex task than you'd expect. "The area's steep hillsides present unique challenges for staff and machinery, but are easily accessible to goats," said Christian Zimmerman, Prospect Park Alliance Vice President of Capital and Landscape Management. The herd of eight goats—a mix of Nubian, Angora and Pygmy breeds—are prodigious climbers and aren't picky eaters; they have four stomachs and can consume 25 percent of their bodyweight in vegetation each day. They'll devour the weeds down to their roots, forcing the plants to use all their energy to grow new shoots, only to be eaten by the goats once again. The goats keep eating until eventually the plants do not have enough energy to grow back at all. The goats, contained behind eight-foot-high construction fencing, are provided by Green Goats, a goat farm in Rhinebeck, NY, that specializes in landscape restoration.

Midnight Moment: Cistern - Times Square
Through August 31, 2016 - New York

Times Square Arts brings musician and composer Jherek Bischoff’s Cistern, a video from his latest album, to Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in August. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. The video features Bischoff as a lone tuxedoed figure awakening from the earth to traverse the expanses of the globe, covering the most extreme landscapes of the ocean floor, arid salt flats, glaciers, and mossy rainforest, ultimately retiring under a star-studded sky. Cistern is inspired by sound improvisations Bischoff created in an empty, two-million gallon, underground water tank. The space boasts a 45-second reverb decay that forced Bischoff to slowdown and accommodate the unique acoustic qualities. Bischoff later recorded an album of ambient music, inspired by that time, with a live orchestra. The cinematic music naturally led to synchronization with film, and the contemplative manner in which Bischoff created soundscapes is echoed in its images. The video brings to life the expansiveness of the cistern and its relationship to distance, space and time, in an epic and introspective journey through extraordinary landscapes. On August 21 and 22, Jherek Bischoff's Silent Orchestra will perform music from Bischoff's latest album Cistern on electronic orchestral instruments and stream through 400 sets of wireless headphones. To passersby, the ensemble will be completely silent; those who have headphones will be treated to an orchestral concert in the middle of Times Square – a spectacular way to perform music without violating the noise code. The finale of the concert will be synchronized with a screening of Bischoff's video for “Cistern,” broadcast on numerous screens throughout Times Square. Jherek Bischoff's Silent Orchestra features musicians from one of NYC's finest ensembles, Contemporaneous. The public is invited to arrive at 11pm both nights and the program will run until midnight. On August 19 Bischoff will present an album release concert at National Sawdust in Williamsburg, Brooklyn starting at 7pm. More information can be found at www.nationalsawdust.org. Jherek Bischoff, Artist, said, “Working on Cistern has been absolutely epic: from the initial sessions in the two-million-gallon, empty water tank, to filming in eight remote locations around the world. I have been buried twice, sunburned three times, and submerged on the ocean floor with rocks tied to my waist – thankfully only once. Performing songs from my record Cistern in Times Square with the Silent Orchestra, culminating in my video being played on Times Square's screens, is the most exciting thing I can imagine. As a composer of music outside the mainstream, sharing my work with such a massive audience is a dream.” Jim Batt, Director/Producer, said, “It feels appropriate that the Cistern video, filmed in remote locations around the world, following a figure alone among the elements, should be screened among the lively crowds at the heart of a bustling metropolis. The video’s cycle of time on a mythic and geological scale is a fitting juxtaposition to the exuberant rush and hustle of Times Square.” Paola Prestini, Creative and Executive Director, National Sawdust, said, “As an artist-led nonprofit supporting those that thrive in the creation and exploration of new music, National Sawdust is thrilled to be a part of Jherek Bischoff’s upcoming performances. It is also our privilege to partner with Times Square Arts on this project as we both seek to maintain a unique and complex musical ecosystem in NYC.” Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance, said, “Once again, Times Square highlights its unique assets to expand the concept of what one can expect. Where else can one feel the heat and energy of the city, and grab a pair of headsets to listen to this emerging superstar and watch a midnight showing?” Sherry Dobbin, Times Square Arts Director, said, “This is our most ambitious experiment to bring sound to our iconic silent surround cinema. The scope of Bischoff’s musical and video work and its cavernous origins are a perfect fit for this artificial canyon.” Fred Rosenberg, President of the Times Square Advertising Coalition, said, “Each month, the Midnight Moment gets more and more creative incorporate new and interactive components like this month’s live orchestra. The committee was impressed by the video’s exploration of the diverse landscapes and geographies throughout the world. It’s a very fitting piece to be showcased in our very own concrete jungle.” The following digital screens are participating in the August Midnight Moment: ABC SuperSign, American Eagle Times Square, Bank of America, Branded Cities 7 Times Square, Branded Cities NASDAQ Tower Times Square, Branded Cities Thomson Reuters, Outfront Media 1515 Broadway/ Viacom North & South, CEMUSA, City Outdoor, Clear Channel Spectacolor HD127/CNN, Clear Channel Spectacolor HD128, Disney Store Spectacular, Microsoft Cube and Welcome Center Live Tiles, Morgan Stanley Lights on Broadway, Sherwood Equities 1 Times Square, SILVERCAST Digital Spectacular - Times Square, Superior Digital Displays Three Times Square #5, Superior Digital Displays Triple Play About Midnight Moment Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night. The program premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program of the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists.

The Good Earth - The Flea Theater
Through September 03, 2016 - New York

MOTHERLODE THEATRE, RCT Theatres, in association with Wales Millennium Centre, and Arts Council Wales, presents the US premiere of THE GOOD EARTH at The Flea Theater. This acclaimed Welsh folk play with music is directed by “one of the most powerful and influential women in Welsh theatre” (Wales Online), Rachael Boulton (director of Blackout at the Royal National Theatre in London) . The limited New York engagement, prior to its World Tour, will play the upstairs space at The Flea Theater, 41 White Street, New York, NY 10013. Performances begin Wednesday, August 17th and continue through Saturday, September 3rd, 2016. Opening Night is Wednesday, August 24th at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available at www.theflea.org. Inspired by true events, The Good Earth is the explosive new story of a Welsh village fighting to save their homes and mountain unravelled through physical theatre akin to the Welsh-trained Frantic Assembly, new writing and Welsh folk song, bringing to life a valley torn apart by their council, big business and eventually themselves. Facing pressure from the local council to move when a new development is proposed, a small group of ardent Welsh villagers decide to fight back. This explosive new play provides cultural context to the anti-establishment sentiment of rural Wales that has partly led to the recent "Brexit" vote. The piece was developed in residency in the Rhondda Valley, Wales, working with one of the few still standing ex-mining theatres of the 1800’s to tell the story of a family, who against all odds, fought for what they believed in. The play is bilingual with all songs sung in Welsh. The songs were first recorded in New York in 1965 by Welsh language activist Dr. Meredydd Evans. Featuring Rachael Boulton, Anni Dafydd, Kate Elis, Gwenllian Higginson (Forever Young - Young Vic Theatre, London; England’s Dreaming - Unicorn Theatre, London) and Michael Humphrey (War Horse - World Tour). The production is musical directed by Max Mackintosh and features scenic/costume design by Buddug James Jones, lighting design by Katy Morrison, and graphic design and illustration by Tom Flannery. Jason Rost is the New York Associate Producer and Matt Davies is the general manager. The Good Earth plays the following schedule through September 3rd (please note 7:00pm curtain): Mondays at 7:00 pm Tuesdays at 7:00 pm Wednesdays at 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm Thursdays at 7:00 pm Fridays at 7:00 pm Saturdays at 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm Tickets are $25.00 ($15 rush; $35 premium) and are now available online at theflea.org or by calling 866-811-4111.

Summer of Hamilton - New-York Historical Society
Through September 05, 2016 - Upper West Side

Beginning this July 4th holiday weekend, the New-York Historical Society welcomes visitors to be in "the room where it happens" for a Museum-wide celebration of the life and legacy of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. During the Summer of Hamilton, related artifacts and documents from the Collections of the New-York Historical Society and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History will be on display throughout the Museum and Library, complemented by a series of talks, educational programs, and family-friendly activities that bring to life the remarkable achievements of the man who, until recently, was mostly known as the face on the $10 bill. Now enjoying fervent popularity thanks to the history-making, Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical Hamilton and the bestselling biography by Ron Chernow, Hamilton's connection to New York and his lasting influence on U.S. government will come together in this summer-long exploration, allowing visitors to discover even more about this American hero. "When the New-York Historical Society presented Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America, our landmark 2004 exhibition in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, we could never have expected that Hamilton, the man, would have captured the popular imagination in the way that he has with Hamilton, the musical," said Dr. Louise Mirrer, President and CEO, New-York Historical Society. "Now admirers of the Broadway hit and those interested in learning more about one of New York City's most influential citizens can decide for themselves, as the show says, 'who lives, who dies, who tells your story' as we commemorate the anniversary of Hamilton's death and the achievements of his life." Alexander Hamilton played a leading role in the Revolutionary War and the early years of the founding of the United States. Born in the West Indies, he came to New York City, where he received his education, beginning in 1773, at King's College, now known as Columbia University. Possessing a brilliant mind, he took part in the Revolutionary War as an aide-de-camp to General George Washington, authored the majority of the Federalist Papers, became the first Secretary of the Treasury, created the Bank of the United States, and founded the Bank of New York and The New York Post. Mired by scandal and controversy in later years, he died on July 12, 1804, in Greenwich Village, succumbing to the wounds he suffered at the hands of Vice President Aaron Burr during their infamous duel. Exhibition Highlights Among the highlights that will be on view during the Summer of Hamilton are life-size bronze statues depicting Hamilton and Burr in the midst of their deadly duel, pistols drawn and aimed at one another. The statues, created by sculptor Kim Crowley, were previously on loan to The Public Theater and were displayed in its lobby during the off-Broadway run of Hamilton. Also featured will be the monumental tall case clock presented to Hamilton in 1796 by the Bank of New York, which will return to the New-York Historical Society after a years-long loan to the Bank. Hamilton's desk, at which the prolific writer penned his correspondence, will be exhibited on loan from the Museum of the City of New York. Displayed with these items, an exhibition by the Gilder Lehrman Institute will present nine key documents from Hamilton's life, including his famous "nut brown maid" love letter to his fiancée, Elizabeth Schuyler; the infamous pamphlet admitting to his affair with Maria Reynolds; the plan for the federal government that he proposed during the Constitutional Convention; the first federal budget printed in his Report on Public Credit; and a letter supporting Thomas Jefferson over Aaron Burr in the Election of 1800, which stated "In a choice of Evils let them take the least?Jefferson is in every view less dangerous than Burr." Above these documents will hang New-York Historical's portrait of the statesman by John Trumbull, painted shortly after Hamilton's untimely death in 1804. Select video clips from the Broadway show will also be shown, enhancing the connection between Hamilton the musical and these historical items. On view in the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library, additional documents from New-York Historical's collection will help answer the question posed in the musical?"who tells your story"?by focusing on Hamilton's relationships with other Founding Fathers and his widow's attempt to secure his place in history. Later in 2017, the Library will showcase documents highlighting Hamilton's impact on public policy in the early republic. Replicas of the dueling pistols used by Hamilton and Burr, on loan from the JPMorgan Chase Historical Collection, continue to be exhibited as part of New York Rising, a permanent installation on a 42-foot wall in the Museum facing Central Park West, which illustrates New York's critical contribution to the founding of the U.S. The installation also features the marble cenotaph marking where Hamilton was wounded; a bust of Hamilton by Giuseppe Ceracchi depicting him in the guise of a Roman Senator; a gold mourning ring set with a lock of Hamilton's hair that Elizabeth Hamilton gave to Nathaniel Pendleton, Hamilton's second in the duel; Pendleton's statements about the regulations of the duel; portraits of Aaron Burr and his gifted daughter Theodosia Burr painted by John Vanderlyn; various correspondence written in the aftermath of the duel; and Burr's death mask.

City of the Soul: Rome and the Romantics - Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 11, 2016 - New York

Rome exists not only as an intensely physical place, but also as a romantic idea onto which artists, poets, and writers project their own imaginations and longings. City of the Soul examines the evolving image of Rome in art and literature with a display of books, manuscripts, prints, photographs, and drawings. This groundbreaking exhibition considers the ever-evolving identities of Rome during a pivotal period in the city's history, 1770–1870, when it was transformed from a papal state to the capital of a unified, modern nation. Venerable monuments were demolished to make way for government ministries and arteries of commerce. Building projects and improvements in archaeological techniques revealed long forgotten remnants of the ancient metropolis. A tourist's itinerary could include magnificent ruins, ecclesiastical edifices, scenic vistas, picturesque locales, fountains, gardens, and side trips to the surrounding countryside. The exhibition juxtaposes a century of artistic impressions of Rome through a superb selection of prints and drawings by recognized masters such as Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778), J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851), and Edward Lear (1812–1888) along with lesser known artists whose work deserves greater attention.

Agora Gallery presents Unbound Perspectives, a group exhibition highlighting work that presents reality with heightened aesthetic possibilities. Bringing together no fewer than eighteen artists, the exhibition is an eclectic mixture of photography, painting, and sculpture. Some pieces present subtler, updated forms of surrealism: familiar objects and figures taken out of context and placed into new environments, or classic art historical tableaux with present-day icons swapped in. Other pieces are rooted in abstraction and approach the familiar from the opposite end of the spectrum. There are investigations into color, line, and texture, all as they relate to depicting things from the real world – and especially, imagining them differently. Every work in Unbound Perspectives shares the tension of seeing foreign elements integrated with everyday things. The exhibition celebrates the new and the unexpected, with eyes forward but always carrying knowledge of the past. Unbound Perspectives will be on view from August 26th – September 15th, 2016. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, September 1st, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.

On The Line: Intrepid & The Vietnam War - Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Through September 16, 2016 - New York

On October 16, 2015, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will unveil On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War, a major exhibition exploring the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of Intrepid's history. The exhibition, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the war, will offer a site-specific immersion into an important chapter of American history.The legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid served three tours of duty in Vietnam between 1966 and 1969. Set within the very spaces where men lived and served, the exhibition will focus on the experiences of Intrepid and its crew "on the line"—the periods when the ship was active in the Gulf of Tonkin, launching aircraft for missions over mainland Vietnam. This localized history will serve as the starting point for understanding the larger historical landscape, including the Cold War, Operation Rolling Thunder and protests at home. The exhibition will include artifacts, photographs and film clips from the Museum's collection, many of which will be on display for the first time. The exhibition will also draw from the Museum's Oral History Project, an initiative launched in 2013 to record and preserve the stories of those who served on Intrepid, offering visitors the chance to hear the experiences of veterans in their own words, and to learn history firsthand.

Roberto Burle Max: Brazilian Modernist - The Jewish Museum
Through September 18, 2016 - New York

Roberto Burle Marx (1909–1994) was one of the most influential landscape architects of the twentieth century, yet he is not a familiar figure outside of his native Brazil. He is best known for his iconic seaside pavements on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach, and for his abstract, geometric garden designs. But his work encompasses an enormous range of artistic forms and styles: Burle Marx was a painter and sculptor; a designer of textiles, jewelry, theater sets, and costumes; a ceramicist and stained-glass artist. He was an avid art collector, a talented baritone, a consummate cook, and a visionary self-taught botanist and ecologist. For him, all these endeavors were equally important, facets of one another.

Rembrandt's First Masterpiece - Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 18, 2016 - New York

Completed when he was just twenty-three years old, Rembrandt's Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver has long been recognized as the artist's first mature work, his first masterpiece. The painting demonstrates many of the characteristics that would come to define Rembrandt's style: dramatic lighting, a rhythmic harmony of composition, and his exceptional ability to convey the emotional drama of a scene. Long held in a British private collection, the painting will be shown in the United States for the first time at the Morgan in Rembrandt's First Masterpiece. Adding to the importance of the presentation, Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver is one of very few Rembrandt works for which several preparatory drawings survive. The exhibition reunites the painting and the drawings for the first time since their creation, offering visitors an unprecedented opportunity to take a glimpse over Rembrandt's shoulder as he worked on this composition. Among the first to recognize the greatness of Rembrandt's Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver was the famous Dutch diplomat, poet, musician, and art connoisseur Constantijn Huygens. The manuscript of Huygens's autobiography which contains his lyrical account of the painting will be lent by the Royal Library in The Hague and included in the exhibition. Also on view will be a number of early self-portraits that show the young Rembrandt at the time he painted the panel, and some two dozen etchings and drawings of scenes from the life of Christ that illustrate the development of the artist's narrative style. Many of the items on view are from the Morgan's own collection of Rembrandt prints and drawings, and the exhibition also features loans from the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the British Museum, London; the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; and the Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin.

Eye for Design - Museum of Arts & Design
Through September 18, 2016 - New York

Eye for Design explores the unique graphic identity created by the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in the 1960s and 1970s through its imaginatively designed exhibition catalogues and related ephemera. The examples gathered here—drawn primarily from MAD's archive or that of the American Craft Council—were designed by many American and international graphic artists, including Emil Antonucci, John J. Reiss, and Linda Hinrichs. At a time when the field of graphic design was becoming increasingly corporate, these designers rejected the minimal abstraction of the brand logo in favor of hand-rendered illustration, playful use of typography, vibrant color, and inventive adaptation of the catalogue form. Instead of promoting an exhibition's actual works, these techniques and treatments were used metaphorically, to communicate distinctive artistic sensibilities that privilege ideals of creativity, experimentation, and hand-making, as well as the value of experience over passive contemplation. The design approaches you see here fuse art world influences—from Pop art to Henri Matisse's cutouts to Fluxus-inspired multiples—with popular graphic design styles and technologies, including the visually associative posters of the counterculture and the rise of screenprinting. Along the way, Eye for Design tells a story of MAD's distinctive exhibition program in the 1960s and 1970s, which embraced an expansive definition of craft, including forms of creative practice and sensory experiences that remain unorthodox in the art world today.

Disguise: Masks and Global African Art - Brooklyn Museum
Through September 18, 2016 - Prospect Heights

Disguise: Masks and Global African Art connects the work of twenty-five contemporary artists with historical African masquerade, using play and provocation to invite viewers to think critically about their world and their place within it. By putting on a mask and becoming someone else, artists reveal hidden realities about society, including those of power, class, and gender, to suggest possibilities for the future. Masks have long been used by African artists to define relationships between individuals, communities, the environment, or the cosmos?and, sometimes, to challenge the status quo. However, once masks were removed from their original performance context, they were transformed into museum objects, and their larger messages were often lost. The exhibition presents contemporary work in dialogue with historical objects from the collections of the Seattle Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum within an immersive and lively installation of video, digital, sound, and installation art, as well as photography and sculpture. Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing, 5th Floor

The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems - New-York Historical Society
Through September 25, 2016 - Upper West Side

This spring, the New-York Historical Society will celebrate Mo Willems' beloved children's book characters, including The Pigeon, who is bus-obsessed; comedy duo Elephant and Piggie; and famed Brooklynites Trixie and Knuffle Bunny. On view March 18 through September 25, 2016, The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems will follow a multifaceted journey across a career that started on Sesame Street and led to award-winning books like Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! (2003). Organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, and recently on view at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, the New-York Historical Society's unique presentation of the exhibition will highlight particular elements of Willems' life and career in New York to show how the city influenced the creation of his iconic characters. "Mo Willems' work boldly and artfully melds the humor and wonder of youth with a complex understanding of the human experience, so it speaks to readers of all ages," said Louise Mirrer, President and CEO of the New-York Historical Society. "The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems reveals how Willems' personal experiences in New York inspired his writing. We look forward to celebrating both his work and the city as artistic muse." The exhibition will bring together approximately 90 works from some of Willems' most popular series, as well as selections from stand-alone classics such as Leonardo the Terrible Monster (2005) and That Is NOT a Good Idea! (2013), featuring original art, preliminary sketches, animation cels, and sculptures. The exhibition will present Willems' inspiration, unique process, artwork, and characters in an immersive and child-friendly space, featuring an imaginative New York cityscape on the gallery walls, two reading areas with copies of his books for browsing or special reading events, and a family audio guide narrated by Willems. Exhibition highlights will include: - Animation cels and sketches from Willems' early projects, including a student film created at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, as well as professional work for Sesame Street, Sheep in the Big City, and other television shows - "Walking the Williamsburg Bridge to Work," a graphic short story in which Willems narrates his personal experience of 9/11 - A video about Willems' process of creating memorable characters like The Pigeon, Elephant and Piggie, Cat the Cat, and Knuffle Bunny, alongside preliminary sketches, pitch copies, dummy books, and production workflow charts as well as final drawings and published illustrations - An early dummy book of Knuffle Bunny, depicting the stuffed animal as a bear, not a bunny - Wire sculptures and other personal work - Works that creatively address the emotional lives of his characters—and, by extension, his young readers—such as the importance of self-exploration and personal expression in Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed (2009) and kindness in the face of opposition in Edwina, the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct (2006) - Illustrations from The Thank You Book, the finale to the Elephant and Piggie series, due to appear in June 2016.

The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems - New York Historical Society
Through September 25, 2016 - Upper West Side

Mo Willems’ beloved children’s book characters speak with a distinctly New York accent, from Trixie’s very first Brooklyn “Aggle Flaggle Klabble!” utterance to the Nichols and May-esque comedy duo of Elephant and Piggie to a public transportation-obsessed Pigeon. Since the publication of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! in 2003, Willems has amassed an impressive list of New York Times best-selling adventures that have garnered him three Caldecott Honors, two Geisel Medals, five Geisel Honors, and an inaugural spot in the Picture Book Hall of Fame. This spring, the New-York Historical Society presents The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems, an ambling journey across a career that started on Sesame Street and led to a laundromat in Park Slope. The exhibition brings together original art, sketches, and inspirational drawings from Willems’ most popular series and stand-alone classics. This exhibition was organized by the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.

Bent, Cast & Forged: The Jewelry of Harry Bertoia - Museum of Arts & Design
Through September 25, 2016 - New York

Coming to MAD from the Cranbrook Art Museum, Bent, Cast & Forged explores the jewelry designs of Harry Bertoia (b. 1915 – d. 1978) and follows his investigations of form and material in his early days as an artist and designer. A graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art and a former metalsmithing instructor, Bertoia has received international acclaim for his woven wire metal furniture and large bronze and copper sculptures. His exploration of the medium, though, originated in jewelry design while he was still a high school student in Detroit in the 1930s. Of the hundreds of jewelry pieces attributed to Bertoia, the majority were produced during his years at Cranbrook in the early 1940s. Bent, Cast & Forged: The Jewelry of Harry Bertoia displays jewelry works and monotype prints, and offers an early glimpse of a creative vision that would crystallize as his career matured. Though he showed an early talent for silver-plated tableware at Cranbrook, wartime rationing forced Bertoia to work on a smaller scale, and he began to create jewelry from melted-down metal scraps—including wedding rings for Cranbrook friends Charles and Ray Eames. Several early monotype prints are featured to illustrate how the artist harnessed the same intuitive and experimental approach to making for his planographic compositions. The objects in this exhibition highlight Bertoia's investigations of form, dimension and material on a concentrated and bankable scale—establishing him as a pioneer of the American Studio Jewelry movement and a master of elevating fashionable adornment to objets d'art.

Family Ecology Sail on Board the Pioneer - Pier 16 - South Street Seaport Museum
Through September 25, 2016 - New York

The South Street Seaport Museum announces Family Ecology Sail on July 31, 2016 from noon to 3pm at Pier 16 in the South Street Seaport on board the schooner Pioneer. Sailboats, tugboats, and ferries dot the surface of New York Harbor. But what lives under the waters? Board the historic 1885 schooner and set sail past Governors Island for the fishing grounds of Bay Ridge. We’ll set a trawl net and participants will haul it in, bringing up a variety of creatures from blue crabs to flounder. Will we catch a sea horse? A puffer fish? Maybe! Then it’s time to man your halyard and haul away! Children and adults help raise the sails so we can continue our exploration the old fashioned way. While sailing past the Statue of Liberty we’ll learn about the sea creatures we caught, examine plankton through a view-scope, test the water to learn how animals live here, and learn about our marine ecosystem. The sail is recommended for children aged 5 and up. This sail is fun for adults too—you don’t have to attend with children to enjoy the adventure! Tickets are $45 for adults and $40 children 12 and under; South Street Seaport Museum members receive a $5 discount per ticket. Reserve your tickets at https://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/family-ecology-sail/. ABOUT THE SCHOONER PIONEER Pioneer was built as a sloop in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania in 1885 to carry sand mined near the mouth of the Delaware Bay to an iron foundry in Chester, Pennsylvania. Ten years later she was re-rigged as a schooner. In the days before paved roads, small coastal schooners such as Pioneer were the delivery trucks of their era, carrying various cargoes between coastal communities: lumber and stone from the islands of Maine, brick on the Hudson River, and oyster shell on the Chesapeake Bay. Almost all American cargo sloops and schooners were wood, but because she was built in what was then this country’s center of iron shipbuilding, Pioneer had wrought-iron hull. She was the first of only two cargo sloops built of iron in this country, and is the only iron-hulled American merchant sailing vessel still in existence. By 1930, when new owners moved her from the Delaware River to Massachusetts, she had been fitted with an engine, and was no longer using sails. In 1966 she was substantially rebuilt and turned into a sailing vessel once again. Today she plies the waters of NY Harbor carrying adults and children instead of cargo in her current role as a piece of “living history.” ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM South Street Seaport Museum is a non-profit cultural institution located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City. Founded in 1967, the South Street Seaport Museum preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America’s National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses galleries and performance spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, a maritime library, a maritime craft center, and a fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.” #

Great Ocean Liners 1900-1940 Exhibition - Planting Fields Arboretum - Coe Hall
Through October 02, 2016 - Oyster Bay

William R. Coe made his career in the marine insurance business. He was Chairman of the Board of one of the largest insurance brokerage firms in the world, Johnson and Higgins. The firm brokered the hull insurance on the Titanic which sank in 1912 – the claim was settled in only thirty days. The exhibition examines the history of the White Star Line, owners of the Titanic and of Cunard, who owned the ill-fated Lusitania. Competition between the two lines for the highest speed and profits on their trans-Atlantic crossing is a focus of the show. As a teenager Mr. Coe immigrated to the U.S. in 1883; the show examines how ocean liners were built to accommodate steerage passengers in great numbers. In 1899, Mr. Coe travelled to London on Johnson and Higgins business on the City of New York. On board, he met Mai Rogers, daughter of Standard Oil partner and millionaire, H.H. Rogers. William and Mai’s marriage the following year brought significant and influential business contacts to Mr. Coe’s work at Johnson and Higgins. In the exhibition three vessels from each line are prominently featured; for the White Star is the Titanic, the Olympic and the Britannic, and for the Cunard, the Aquitania, the Lusitania and the Mauretania. Posters, archival documents, ship models and memorabilia are included in the exhibition. The installation includes large-scale color photos of first class ocean liner public rooms to demonstrate the luxuriousness of first class quarters, and their design relationship with interiors at Coe Hall. A hundred years ago ocean liners were triumphs of engineering that captured the world’s imagination before the age of air and space travel.

Each week there is a new, garden-themed lesson, including learning about pollinators, worms, seeds, weather, flowers, birds, and more. Young children will have fun in the garden doing plant scavenger hunts, and reading nature books related to the day’s theme.

Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs - Museum of the City of New York
Through October 09, 2016 - New York

One of the most distinctive and complex American comic voices to emerge in the last four decades is that of artist and New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast (b. 1954). Since the 1970s, Brooklyn-born Chast has chronicled the anxieties, pleasures, and perils of contemporary life in a body of work that includes over 1,200 cartoons published in The New Yorker and other magazines, several illustrated children's books, and her award-winning 2014 visual memoir, Can't We talk About Something More Pleasant? Chast has developed a unique visual language and a roster of familiar characters that explore universal experiences of self-doubt and of finding joy in simple things. Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs features more than 200 works by this distinguished artist, showcasing her keen eye for the absurdities and insecurities that permeate daily life—including many situations that are particular to New York City. The exhibition was originally organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and is a co-presentation of the Museum of the City of New York and the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Stuart Davis: In Full Swing - Whitney Museum of American Art
Through October 10, 2016 - New York

Stuart Davis (1892–1964) ranks as a preeminent figure in American modernism. With a long career that stretched from the early twentieth century well into the postwar era, he brought a distinctively American accent to international modernism. Davis's work feels especially vital today in its blurring of distinctions between text and image, high and low culture, and abstraction and figuration. This exhibition departs from previous efforts in its organization. From 1940 on, Davis rarely painted a work that did not make careful reference, however hidden, to one or more of his earlier compositions. Such appropriation is a distinctive aspect of Davis's method. Staged in the Whitney's fifth-floor Neil Bluhm Family Galleries, this will be the first major Davis exhibition to consistently hang later works side by side with the earlier ones that inspired them. With approximately 100 works, from the paintings of tobacco packages and household objects of the early 1920s to the work left on his easel at his death in 1964, In Full Swing will highlight Davis's unique ability to assimilate the imagery of popular culture, the aesthetics of advertising, the lessons of Cubism, and the sounds and rhythms of jazz into works that hum with intelligence and energy. Stuart Davis: In Full Swing is co-organized by Barbara Haskell, Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Harry Cooper, Curator and Head of Modern Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

This exhibition, presented in two rotations, will highlight the gems of the permanent collection in a chronological display, with an emphasis on works from the Song (960–1279) and Yuan (1271–1368) dynasties.

Picturing Prestige: New York Portraits - Museum of the City of New York
Through October 11, 2016 - New York

Beginning in the 18th century, New York City's well-to-do denizens commissioned paintings of themselves and their loved ones to display in their homes as indicators of prestige. Portraits were often created to commemorate a significant moment in the sitter's life—a marriage, acquiring an inheritance, or assuming an important position—and they offered an opportunity for the subject to present a carefully crafted image to the world. Drawn from the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York, Picturing Prestige: New York Portraits, 1700-1860, features works by many of the leading American painters of their day and captures the aspirations of the rising, upstart merchant city as it became the most populous and the most important port in the young country. In addition, the exhibition chronicles the changing nature of portraiture and artistic patronage, and ties together the lives of a group of leading citizens who enjoyed financial and social benefits that were beyond the reach of most New Yorkers.

Through November 06, 2016 - Roslyn Harbor

Work by Ben Schonzeit, previously seen at the Museum in the exhibitions, Still Life: 1970s Photorealism and Garden Party, is featured in a solo exhibition that reveals an entirely different aspect of the career of this artist, who is a central figure in the American Photorealist movement. This is very different from the realist work seen in the concurrent A Feast For The Eyes exhibition. The Contemporary Gallery exhibition showcases Schonzeit’s collage and sculptural work — abstract figurations of human forms or portraits that give new life to his materials. Work by Ben Schonzeit has been seen in solo and group exhibitions throughout the U.S. and Europe and is widely included in public collections. A native of Brooklyn, he now lives and works in SoHo.

Occupying 15,000 square feet of the Museum's second and third floors, the exhibition reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. Behind the Screen also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production. Children under the age of fourteen must be accompanied by an adult of eighteen years or older. Artifacts: The exhibition incorporates approximately 1,400 artifacts from the Museum's collection of the material culture of the moving image. These include historic film and television cameras, projectors, television sets, sound recording equipment, costumes, set design sketches and models, make-up, fan magazines, posters, and an outstanding collection of licensed merchandise?dolls, toys, board games, lunch boxes, and more. The Museum has also been a pioneer in collecting video arcade and console games, which are on exhibit and available for play by visitors. Recently acquired objects on view include makeup used on the stars of Sex in the City, a mechanical prop designed by Mike Marino for a climactic scene in Black Swan, and molds and prototypes produced during the creation of a King Kong action figure. Computer-based interactive experiences: Visitors may record their own movements as a sequence of still photographs that can be printed out and made into a flipbook; create their own stop-motion animations, which they can save and email; record their voices over dialogue from a film, following the same procedure that actors use when dubbing their lines in post-production; choose sound effects to add to the images of well-known movies and television shows; add music to scenes from movies, and to experience how music affects mood and tone. Audio-visual material: Behind the Screen includes nearly four hours of audio-visual material that ranges from film clips related to the artifacts on display; projections of the earliest kinetoscope films, The Great Train Robbery, and selections from The Jazz Singer and Nanook of the North, all of which bring key moments in film history vividly to life; special videos, including The First Movies about Etienne Jules Marey and Chuck Workman's Precious Images; and a simulation of a live TV control room, taking visitors inside the room where director Bill Webb called the shots for the broadcast of a game between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres.

Pooh Bear Returns - New York Public Library Children's Center
Through December 31, 2016 - Midtown

The original Winnie-The-Pooh and friends dolls – treasures of The New York Public Library's research collections – are back on display after over a year of important conservation work, including neck alignments, clavicle repairs, and bottom fluffing. The five dolls, which were given to the real-life Christopher Robin in the 1920s, inspired the characters in author A.A. Milne's iconic and beloved Winnie-The-Pooh books. The dolls were given to the Library by Milne's publisher in the 1980s, and they have been on near permanent display since, most recently in the Children's Center at the landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Last year, after careful evaluation, it was determined that the nearly 100-year-old dolls needed repairs and restoration, so Winnie and friends were sent to a textile conservator, with the project overseen by the Library's preservation department. As of August 3, the completed dolls will be back on display in the Children's Center to inspire future generations of kids and adults.

Dinosaurs Among Us - The American Museum of Natural History
Through January 02, 2017 - New York

Dinosaurs Among Us will examine how one group of dinosaurs evolved into the fascinating living creatures we call birds. The exhibition will highlight the continuities between living dinosaurs—birds—and their extinct ancestors, showcasing remarkable new evidence for what scientists now call one of the best-documented evolutionary transitions in the history of life. Dinosaurs Among Us will explore topics ranging from flight to feathers, nests to wishbones, and brains to lungs. The exhibition will feature ancient, rarely seen fossils, and life-like models, including a 23-foot-long feathered tyrannosaur (Yutyrannus huali) and a small four-winged dromeosaur (Anchiornis huxleyi) with a 22-inch wingspan and vivid, patterned plumage. Visitors will encounter a tiny dinosaur whose sleeping posture precisely echoes that of a living bird, an extinct-dinosaur nest containing remains of the adult that guarded the hatchlings, and a Velociraptor forearm bearing clear traces of feather attachments. The exhibition, which comes on the heels of the unveiling of a 122-foot-long titanosaur cast on permanent display in the Museum’s Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center, is part of a series of events, public programs, exhibitions, and digital offerings highlighting dramatic developments in paleontology. Dinosaurs Among Us is curated by Mark Norell, Macaulay Curator in the Division of Paleontology and the division’s chair. The exhibition will be open to the public from Monday, March 21, 2016, to January 2, 2017. Members will be able to preview the exhibition on Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20.

Animals Without Passports Special Exhibit - Maritime Aquarium
Through January 02, 2017 - Norwalk

The humpback whale population off Cape Cod supports a popular whale-watching industry. And, for the first time in decades, at least three whales spent the late summer of 2015 in western Long Island Sound. But humpbacks aren't in New England waters year-round and their challenging annual international migration is the focus of the special exhibit, "Animals Without Passports," now open at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. This new exhibit was created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. That 842-square-mile protected marine area at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay is a natural summer haven for whales because of its abundant feeding opportunities. Displays in "Animals Without Passports" help Aquarium guests understand the challenges of humpback whales' annual 3,000-mile migration between New England and the Caribbean. Learn why the whales migrate, and explore the hazards that humpbacks face as they cross ocean borders, including poisoning from pollution, becoming entangled in fishing gear and being hit by boats and ships. "This exhibit – and the lessons it offers regarding our role in protecting whales – couldn't be more relevant because we not only welcomed several humpbacks into Long Island Sound this year but we also saw one killed by a probable boat collision," said John Lenzycki, the Aquarium's curator of animals. "Animals Without Passports" tells its story by focusing on one whale, a female humpback named Salt. Trace Salt's "family tree" as you learn how scientists identify and track individual whales. Funding for "Animals Without Passports" came from NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.

Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.

Featuring artifacts and specimens from across the Museum’s scientific divisions—from anthropology to zoology—Treasures of the Peabody will tell the fascinating story of the Museum and its personalities, beginning with the founding of Yale in 1701 and the early evolution of science in America to the expeditions and cutting edge research that our curators are leading today. Just a few of the highlights include the first T. rex fossil ever discovered; a small liverwort specimen collected by Charles Darwin during his voyage on the HMS Beagle; a rifle belonging to Buffalo Bill, one of O.C. Marsh’s guides during his fossil expeditions to the American West; a drool collector from Ivan Pavlov; the first microscope purchased by Yale in 1735, and a full-size Velociraptor model from the Jurassic Park film series!

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur - The American Museum of Natural History
Through January 19, 2020 - Upper West Side

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

Connected Worlds - New York Hall of Science
Through January 31, 2020 - Flushing Meadows, Queens

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.
