Orchid Show: Thailand - New York Botanical Garden
Through April 09, 2017 - The Bronx

The Orchid Show celebrates its 15th year at The New York Botanical Garden with an homage to the wealth of orchids and rich cultural history of Thailand. Thailand is home to more than 1,200 native orchid species and over the last century it has become the leading exporter of cultivated tropical orchids in the world. Native and hybrid orchids alike have become synonymous with the nation, where the environment is so hospitable to orchids that the dazzling flowers even grow on the trees that line public streets. This year’s exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will feature an astonishing array of blooming orchids in a lush tropical garden, including a rainbow of vanda orchids, whose large patterned blooms are widely popular in Thai gardens and homes. The show culminates in a jaw-dropping scene of a large arched façade in the style of a traditional Thai pavilion—festooned with hundreds of exquisite orchids. Round out your visit with tours, orchid care demonstrations, expert Q&As, and more. And on select nights, Orchid Evenings return with after-hours viewings of the exhibition featuring cocktails, dance, and music.

Madison Square Garden - New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat
March 29, 2017 - New York

Following a busy summer of change, the Knicks head into their 70th Anniversary Season with a new coach, new players and new energy. On June 2, they announced the hiring of Jeff Hornacek as the 28th Head Coach in the team’s history. Voted runner-up for 2014 NBA Coach of the Year, Hornacek brings to the table three seasons of experience as the Phoenix Sun’s Head Coach. Knicks President, Phil Jackson said, “During his career as both a player and coach, he has demonstrated the ability to elevate the game.” Throughout the summer, the Knicks front office began to reshape their roster to add to the duo of All-Star Carmelo Anthony and NBA All-Rookie first team member Kristaps Porzingis. To improve the team in the short and long term, they wanted a superior “lead guard” and found him in former MVP Derrick Rose in a five-player trade with the Chicago Bulls. “He gives us an opportunity to push the ball with him, being able to penetrate and maybe kick it out for some early offense, threes possibly,” Hornacek explained. The Knicks filled out their roster in the opening days of free agency by signing center Joakim Noah and guards Brandon Jennings and Courtney Lee. Hornacek said, “We believe that the players we have will give us a good mix of versatility and flexibility on both side of the ball. This will help us get to the level we want to achieve.” With the new players onboard, the Knicks have a seasoned group of talented players that should bring new excitement and fierce competition to the court. As the team celebrates 70 memorable years as a franchise, they’re definitely gearing up to write their own chapter.

Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) - Doug Varone and Dancers
March 29, 2017 - Brooklyn

“Varone’s ornate movement tends to crackle like electricity: Churning this way and that, it appears to be propelled less by muscles and bones than by centrifugal force.” —The New York Times Doug Varone and Dancers celebrate 30 years of impassioned choreography with three works representing the past, present, and future of this peerless company. Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994), inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire. Varone’s latest work Folded, set to music by MacArthur fellow Julia Wolfe, renders the intimate interplay between two dancers falling in and out of sync. And in ReComposed, inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s Dystopia.

Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express Bottle Rockets - Bowery Ballroom
March 29, 2017 - New York

Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express Chuck Prophet describes his new disc BOBBY FULLER DIED FOR YOUR SINS as "California Noir." He says, "the state has always represented the Golden Dream, and it's the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs. Doomed love, inconsolable loneliness, rags to riches to rags again, and fast-paced violence are always on the menu on the Left Coast." Who is Bobby Fuller? He's the star of the ultimate Rock and Roll Babylon feel-bad story. The title track came out of an obsession Prophet shares with co-conspirator klipschutz. Prophet explains, "One day we were sitting in my so-called office South of Market listening to LPs, when out of frustration –I picked up a guitar and shouted, 'I hear that record crackle, the needle skips and jumps!' and klipschutz shot back, '"Bobby Fuller died for your sins!'" One thing led to another, and ten months later he found himself at the legendary Hyde St. Studios in the heart of the Tenderloin "slaving over a hot two-inch tape machine, cutting tracks with Brad Jones, Paul Q. Kolderie, and Matt Winegar riding herd." And pumping it all into the echo chamber. No computer in sight and two-inch tape boxes stacked up to the ceiling. Prophet realizes that the title track makes a heavy claim, and laughs at the suggestion it might shine new light on the mystery long surrounding Bobby Fuller's early demise. Fuller, who migrated from El Paso to L.A. in the early 1960s, has been described as "a greaser in a world of Beach Boy bangs and Beatle boots, hopelessly out of step with the times." Found dead in his car at the age of 23, to a devoted coterie of fans, old and new, he'll always remain the skinny guy singing "I Fought the Law," on countless teen dance TV shows, and radio playlists. Ruled a suicide, his death has haunted investigators (and biographers Miriam Linna and Randall Fuller) since 1966. "Some resolution would be nice," Prophet says, "but I run a band, not a Cold Case squad." The Mission Express, Prophet's band, which includes his wife Stephanie Finch, provided the backing. "Talented, difficult people who all played their hearts out. You can hear it," he says. And recording at Hyde Street – walking distance from his apartment – was a homecoming of sorts. "I did my first session there, in high school no less," says Prophet. He even dragged out his '64 Stratocaster, a guitar that Jonathan Richman said sounds, "like gasoline in the sand, like a motorcycle at a hot dog stand." Prophet says, "there's a serious Link Wray jones that you might not hear in here too. But it's there. Guitars and drums. Rock and roll. I just haven't found anything that hits me the same way. That two guitar, bass and drums feeling." With titles such as "Bad Year for Rock and Roll," "Post-War Cinematic Dead Man Blues," "We Got Up and Played, and, "If I Was Connie Britton," Prophet allows that, "there just might be some songs on this one. John Murry, who is never at a loss for words, says the goal is to make a record you can be proud and unsure of at the same time. Naked and belligerent, but sweetly so… I can't improve on that." "Bad Year for Rock and Roll" is a timely homage to rock greats lost this year, Prophet name-checking David Bowie in the opening lines: "The Thin White Duke took a final bow / there's one more star in the heavens now…I'm all dressed up in a mohair suit / watching Peter Sellers thinking of you." The album closes with the blistering "Alex Nieto," which Prophet calls "my first protest song. I know you've listened to me rant about Twitter and how I believe San Francisco is under siege by techie man-children and billionaires." But still, he never dreamed he'd be in the middle of a culture war with real bodies. Born and raised in the City, Alex Nieto was on his way to work as a security guard when he ended up with 59 bullets in and around him, all fired by the police. There's a lot more to the story, and the details are available to anyone who wants to know. The song is a two-chord homage to a good man who should still be alive. Just one more sign of the apocalypse.

Mockstrosity Tour feat. Mac Sabbath & Metalachi w/ Okilly Dokilly - Le Poisson Rouge
March 29, 2017 - New York

It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, CA franchise of a certain multinational fast food conglomerate which shall remain nameless. A crazed skull face painted, dirt-bag, clown sat down beside me. This Skeletor reject of Uriah Heap introduced himself as Ronald Osborne and was familiar with my work. I was informed that Ronald, Slayer Mac Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, were performing secret rock shows in the bunker-like basements of the local restaurants. But the time had come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the "underground," and he asked if I would consider becoming the manager. BAM! Abruptly we were thrown to the sidewalk. (Apparently the daytime manager was not informed of this activity) I looked over at Ronald, watched him brush off the sodium chloride and GMO remnants of my UN happy meal. Before I knew it, I was in a burger stand bomb shelter, witnessing Black Sabbath music, hilarious fast food lyrics, smoldering clown heads with laser eyes, a giant purple gumdrop bass player, and Tony Iommi with a giant cheeseburger head. I was confused, amazed and can't ever remember feeling so………happy!

An Intimate Evening w/ Joshua Radin w/ Jillette Johnson (M&G Available) - City Winery
Through March 29, 2017 - New York

Joshua Radin Love and the complications surrounding it have long proven to be Joshua Radin's songwriting forte. Though he never intended to be a live performer, there was little choice when the first song he ever wrote, "Winter," was featured on an episode of "Scrubs." The resulting fervor around the song soon led to a record deal, and over the last decade, Radin has toured the world countless times, sold hundreds of thousands of records and topped the iTunes charts, earned raves from Rolling Stone to The Guardian, performed on "The Tonight Show," "Conan," and more, played Ellen DeGeneres' wedding at her personal request, and had his songs featured in more than 150 different films, commercials, and TV shows.Radin, born in Cleveland and now living in Los Angeles, recently released a double live CD featuring all of his most popular songs in April 2016. His new album, The Fall, will be released in January 2017. Jillette Johnson For Jillette Johnson the journey has been as integral to her musical experience as the destination. Jillette, who began taking music lessons and penning songs as a child, has been performing live since she was 12, captivating audiences with her sultry, thoughtful piano-driven tunes. The musician, now 24, has spent the last decade cultivating her sound and defining her unique perspective. When she moved to New York City from her small town of Pound Ridge, NY at 18, Jillette was already familiar with the city and its clubs, from Sidewalk Cafe to The Bitter End to Rockwood Music Hall. In early 2012, Jillette inked a deal with Wind-up Records, who were drawn in by her track "Cameron," an inspirational number that explores the struggle of a transgendered person whom Jillette knows. The song appeared on the singer's five-track EP, Whiskey & Frosting, which came out in August 2012, a prelude to her June 25, 2013 Wind-up Records' debut album release, Water In A Whale. Culled from six months worth of recording sessions at Wind-up's New York studio, the album traces Jillette's experiences and ideas about living in the city and being young in today's society. She finished the album fall 2012, just before going out on tour, and as it turned out those weeks on the road shifted the musician's sensibilities. The album, which features the five tracks found on Whiskey & Frosting, centers on Jillette's soaring vocals and the sparse, haunting piano lines she wrote to accompany them. Produced by Peter Zizzo (Vanessa Carlton, Avril Lavigne) and Michael Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne), the album reveals Jillette's pensive reflections on the world around her, all of which lead to a deeper understanding of self-identity. The real power comes from those songs about the musician herself, however and the rest of the album follows in tone. Jillette brings her impassioned live aesthetic onto the album, infusing each number with a sense of intimacy and fervor. The songs shift from light-hearted buoyancy of "Bassett Hound" to the heavy urgency of "Cameron," showcasing a viable array of musical – and lyrical – inspiration. For Jillette, whose years of experience and practice have set her up for what's to come, the goal is to bring these songs to life for as many people as possible.

Bob Schneider at City Vineyard - City Winery
March 29, 2017 - New York

Austin-based singer/songwriter/creative force of nature Bob Schneider has a guy in his band, Oliver Steck, who plays keyboards, accordion, trumpet and assorted whistles and horns. Also, Schneider notes, "Oliver also does a lot of dancing. He doesn't necessarily get paid for the dancing. He does it because he can't not." Apparently, the same could be said of Schneider in terms of artistic endeavors in general. He can't not be creating something. Sometimes it's writing songs — he has written some 2,000 songs in the past 16 years — sometimes it's creating videos to accompany some of those songs and sometimes it's making gallery-ready art, including paintings and collages. He also has played a wedding singer in an indie film, written two books and penned a rock opera that has a title that can't be printed in a family newspaper. Some of his musical mates even wonder when — or whether — he ever sleeps. "I love making things, so that's what I spend a lot of my time doing," says Schneider… "I do have periods where I feel like I'll never create anything that's any good ever again. The good news is, it doesn't stop me from creating things, and eventually that feeling will pass and I can look over the stuff that I've made and figure out which of it is better than the other stuff. Because I like to do it so much, I'll end up with quite a bit of it at the end of the year." Schneider has been a recording artist for 25 years, putting out his first record ("Party Till You're Dead") in 1991 as frontman for Joe Rockhead, a funk-rock combo in the vein of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That band was followed by his best-known group, Ugly Americans, which toured with the Dave Matthews Band and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Ugly Americans was a kind of alt-rock supergroup, with former members of Cracker, Poi Dog Pondering and Mojo Nixon's band. Schneider also fronted a full-on funk ensemble that played around Austin in the late 1990s called The Scabs, at the same time he was establishing himself as a solo artist. His first solo project, "Songs Sung and Played on Guitar at the Same Time," came out in 1998, and he's gone on to record an almost inconceivably diverse and eclectic array of songs since then, with his work making it onto the soundtracks of seven major motion pictures (and one indie film). All told, Schneider has been the singer and main songwriter on nearly 30 studio albums, and he has been named Musician of the Year six times at the Austin Music Awards. Considering the renowned strength of the music scene in Austin, that's saying something. His artistry coupled with his movie-star looks and boyish charm makes it a wonder he's not a household name around the rest of the country the way he is in Austin. The past few years, Schneider has grouped the songs he's written in a year under an album title, just to kind of keep track of when they were written. Titles for recent years have included "Here's the Deal," "The Ever Increasing Need to Succeed," "Into the Great Unknown" and "Mental Problems." This year's theme (and the name of his current concert tour) is "The Practical Guide to Everything." Schneider has a fantastic website where fans can listen to all of the songs from the three five- song "King Kong Suite" EPs he released last year, with humorous commentary from Schneider himself between songs. The website also has the 10 videos he created for "King Kong" songs using public-domain found footage, including the menacing "Black Mountain" video that culls scenes from Francis Ford Coppola's directorial debut. The website also offers a chance to stream his regular Monday evening shows at Austin's Saxon Pub. Adapted from "Bob Schneider surfs an ocean of creative juices" written by Randy Erickson and published in the LaCrosse Tribune, April 14, 2016

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
March 29, 2017 - New York

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 14th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Anais Mitchell - Iridium
Through March 29, 2017 - New York

"Mitchell is a skilled storyteller…and her delivery gives an emotional complexity that welcomes and even demands repeated listens." Pitchfork "Currently a well-kept secret, Mitchell is writing material that stands comparison with the great singer-songwriters of the past few decades" Daily Telegraph Anaïs Mitchell is a Vermont and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who comes from the world of narrative folksong, poetry and balladry. She recorded for Ani Difranco's Righteous Babe Records for several years before starting her own Wilderland label in 2012. Among her recorded works are six full-length albums, including 2010?s sensationally-reviewed Hadestown, a folk opera based on the Orpheus myth; 2012?s Young Man in America, which was described by the UK's Independent as 'an epic tale of American becoming'; and 2013's Child Ballads, a collaboration with Jefferson Hamer, which won a BBC Radio Two Folk Award for Best Traditional Track. Mitchell has headlined shows worldwide as well as supporting tours for Bon Iver, Ani Difranco, The Low Anthem (all of whom appear as guest singers on Hadestown) Josh Ritter and Punch Brothers. Her stage production of Hadestown, which was ten years in the making, opened Off-Broadway in May 2016 to rave reviews. The New York Times called it "inventive, beguiling and spellbinding" while Vogue announced that "Hadestown will be your new theater obsession". The show was extended twice as a result of critical success and sell-out performances.

This year, you can see him on Comedy Central's The Half Hour and also see his commentary as a new cast member of MTV2's Guy Code. Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that's because it's impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central's Premium Blend. That same night, he met his future wife, and she made him move to Manhattan. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC's Last Comic Standing finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera As The World Turns, lasting two episodes! At the end of 2008 he then shot his own Comedy Central half Hour Special, which earned him a "cult" following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next four years at 500 colleges across the country. In 2010 Pete began producing and editing his own shows for the Internet which led to getting his own web show on MSN.com called New York Minute:30. His web shows attracted the attention of television talent scouts and in 2012 he was hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV's Video on Trial and the NFL Network's Top 10's. In 2013, Pete was hired as a cast member on VH1's Best Week Ever, which debuted in January. If you haven't heard of Pete Lee yet, prepare to tell other people.

March 29, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

All These Wonders: The Moth at Lincoln Center - Alice Tully Hall
March 29, 2017 -

The theme of this show shares a title with The Moth's upcoming book, All These Wonders. The phrase comes out of a story by scientist Cathy Olkin, which puts us in the room at the moment she and her fellow NASA scientists first gazed at the surface of Pluto. While most of us aren't rocket scientists, we all have moments when we face the unknown. Sometimes it's by choice, metaphorically stepping into uncharted waters ("Here Be Dragons," as the 16th-century globes claimed). Other times we get shoved there against our will by another person or by the fates. And sometimes we land in a place of wonder, someplace that we couldn't have imagined when we first started out. Join us on March 29 for stories about courage, determination, and the wonders that await us when we step into the unknown. In keeping with The Moth's tradition, the rules are simple: All stories are true and told without notes. The results are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always entertaining.

Joffrey Ballet - David H Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
March 29, 2017 - Upper West SIde

The Joyce Theater Foundation is thrilled to bring The Joffrey Ballet to New York to perform Krzysztof Pastor's magnificent re-mounting of his 2008 production of Romeo & Juliet, which had its U.S. premiere in Chicago with the Joffrey in spring 2014. Set in 20th century Italian society, this updated version of the classic story is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it goes beyond an exploration of family strife to position Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of complicated politics and war. Propelled by Sergei Prokofiev's lushly dramatic 1935 score - accompanied by the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra: Members of the Chicago Philharmonic - Pastor's classical yet contemporary ballet version of Romeo & Juliet, while without words, "might just be the most eloquent, rapturous, emotionally searing 'translation' of the story you will ever see." – The Chicago Sun-Times The Joyce gala evening will take place on Thursday, March 30. It will offer the chance to see this revered company perform Body of Your Dreams by Myles Thatcher, Fool's Paradise by Christopher Wheeldon, and Bells by Yuri Possokhov.

Ruby Amanfu - Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse
March 29, 2017 - Manhattan

"Nashville's next indie star" (Billboard) holds court for one night only at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse. With a remarkable vocal range that seamlessly goes from trembling vibrato to gospel fervor, the singer-songwriter is probably best known for her powerhouse vocals that appeared on Jack White's single "Love Interruption," as well as guesting on several tracks on his two solo albums, Blunderbuss and Lazaretto. She has also lent vocals to Beyoncé's Lemonade, dueted with Alabama Shakes's Brittany Howard, and collaborated with the likes of Sara Bareilles, Ben Folds, and Hozier. Long known to insiders as a formidable solo artist, Amanfu broke out in 2016 with a "star-making moment" (Rolling Stone) at the Newport Folk Festival and her "magnetic" 2016 debut album (NPR), Standing Still (Thirty Tigers/Rival & Co), an intrepid collection of covers that takes on Brandi Carlile, Woody Guthrie, and Kanye West, among others.

The 400 Blows - Walter Reade Theater
March 29, 2017 - Manhattan

When film critic François Truffaut was challenged to put into practice what he'd been preaching, he chose to film the story of a 13-year-old wild child in Paris whose adventures were based on his own adolescence. Rejected or rebuffed by school, family, and community, young Antoine Doinel sets out on his own, propelled toward one of the most famous of all movie endings: the legendary snapshot of a childhood on the brink. The 400 Blows marked the birth of Léaud as crown prince of the French New Wave, and of François Truffaut as its runaway auteur.

Masculin féminin - Walter Reade Theater
March 29, 2017 - Manhattan

Godard's freewheeling portrait of "the children of Marx and Coca-Cola"—a generation caught between capitalist pleasures and socialist ideals—stars Léaud as a young, self-styled radical-intellectual as he becomes involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with an aspiring yé-yé girl (Chantal Goya). The director depicts Paris as both a modern playland of arcades, discotheques, and pop music, and a simmering hotbed of political unrest and random acts of violence. Sporting short hair, wearing his traditional suit, and chain-smoking cigarettes, Jean-Pierre Léaud channels the turbulent atmosphere of the time as he delivers an impassioned monologue in a record-your-own-voice booth, whistles Bach in a café, and discusses the myriad synonyms for "buttocks" in bed.

Billboard called Amanfu “Nashville’s next indie star.” The Ghanaian-born, American singer-songwriter possesses a remarkable vocal range from trembling vibrato to gospel fervor.

The Mother and the Whore - Walter Reade Theater
March 29, 2017 - Manhattan

Jean Eustache's first international success uses an obsessive, talkative ménage à trois—Jean-Pierre Léaud, Bernadette Lafont, and Françoise Lebrun—as the jumping-off point for an intense exploration of sexual politics among liberated yet alienated moderns. The Mother and the Whore abounds with references and allusions to 15 years of New Wave images and language—the rich ground of movies about movies—while documenting the mix of strategies and fictions that lovers and other strangers use to make contract and to armor themselves. Léaud here finds one of his greatest, most intimate roles: of a man caught between laughter and depression, between two women, between two ages, who has learned everything about life (including how to make a bed) at the cinema.

The Saturated Palette and Portals of Perception - Agora Gallery
Through March 30, 2017 - NYC

This March two group exhibitions of outstanding range come to Agora Gallery. Portals of Perception features a small, select group of painters who create works of fascinating detail. There are cityscapes made of buildings with real personalities, abstract texture-based pieces that turn acrylic paint into physical patterns, beautiful watercolor visions of the seaside, snapshots of modern urban spaces, and portraits of women who refuse to fit into any mold. All are rooted in a particular reality almost clear enough to reach out and touch. The Saturated Palette, by contrast, includes ten artists and offers a far-seeing look at the way color can be used in fine art. Color is used as an accent, as a suggestion, as a main subject, and thrillingly as an exclamation point. It is bold here and subtle there, straightforward in some works and revealed only in contrast in others. For these imaginative artists working in paint, pastel, and encaustic, the possibilities are endless. Both exhibitions run March 10, 2017 through March 30, 2017 with an opening reception on the night of Thursday, March 16 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: March 10, 2017 – March 30, 2017 Reception: Thursday, March 16, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_3_10_2017.aspx Featured Artists: Portals of Perception Colin Grant | Sydnei SmithJordan | Ron Turner | Nancy Holleran | Shabnam Yousefian | Tanja Skytte The Saturated Palette Olivia Kapoor | Ping Lian Yeak | Vanitira | Jessica Watson-Thorp | Susana Rapallo | Han-Yuan Yu | Maria Fernandez Gold | Irina Goryunova | Chen Jin About Agora Gallery Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Chelsea’s fine art district in New York.

Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) - Doug Varone and Dancers
March 30, 2017 - Brooklyn

“Varone’s ornate movement tends to crackle like electricity: Churning this way and that, it appears to be propelled less by muscles and bones than by centrifugal force.” —The New York Times Doug Varone and Dancers celebrate 30 years of impassioned choreography with three works representing the past, present, and future of this peerless company. Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994), inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire. Varone’s latest work Folded, set to music by MacArthur fellow Julia Wolfe, renders the intimate interplay between two dancers falling in and out of sync. And in ReComposed, inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s Dystopia.

Lambchop - Bowery Ballroom
March 30, 2017 - New York

Lambchop It's been nearly two decades since Lambchop released its first album, at the time pronouncing itself "Nashville's most fucked-up country band." Provocative it may have been, but the description made sense: at the heart of all that ruckus was a band at once defying and embracing the musical legacy of its hometown. Since then, Lambchop has evolved into an accomplished ensemble, adding palpable depth and substance to singer-songwriter-guitarist Kurt Wagner's songs – and the band sounds as commanding as ever on its 11th album, Mr. M, a collection of meditations on love and loss and the detritus of everyday existence. Recorded at Mark Nevers's Nashville Beech House studio cum bungalow and dedicated to Vic Chesnutt, Mr. M includes the usual core of musicians- Scott Martin (drums), Matt Swanson (bass), Ryan Norris (guitar, organ), Tony Crow (piano), William Tyler (guitar) and guests include original co-founder Jonathan Marx, delightful Cortney Tidwell (who shared vocals on 2010?s KORT project) and fiddler Billy Contreras (who has worked with all from Charlie Louvin to Laura Cantrell) – and with spectacular string arrangements shared between Peter Stopschinski and Mason Neely, it stretches out sonically as promised. (Incidentally the paintings, thickly layered black and white portraits forming a series called Beautillion Millitaire 2000, feature on the album sleeve and throughout the full artwork). The core of the music remains the cyclical picking of Wagner's guitar and the soft, warm croaking of his voice. The songs are spacious, even dreamy, as on the Countrypolitan instrumental "Gar," while the lyrics and titles are rich with allusions, some of them obvious, others seemingly unknowable.

Vince Staples with special guest Kilo Kish - Terminal 5
March 30, 2017 - New York

Vince Staples Seven years ago, Vince Staples was invisible. He was a youth tied to the world by group identities that defined him, mostly, by what he was not. Whether it was his city, his neighborhood, his family's economic class, or his race, he could find himself only in contrast and negation. Just as being from Long Beach meant he belonged in no other city, living near Ramona Park on Long Beach's north side meant he belonged in no other neighborhood. Changing places in the world was impossible while his family was struggling, and the impossibility of moving was compounded by the exclusionary, racist housing policies typical of Los Angeles, Southern California, and the United States as a whole. But now he's highly visible. His presence is so appealing that people will pay money to see him; his thoughts are so compelling that people will pay to hear him speak his mind. He has enough money to provide for his family. He has enough money to move out of Long Beach. He can travel the world. He's a rapper who has made a name for himself by offering, with great honesty and precision, a perspective on his former life. After the release of Summertime '06, an album whose calm power and retrospective clarity garnered unanimous critical praise, more doors have been opened for him than he can walk through. He's gone from being nearly completely trapped to possessing what appears to be total freedom. Yet appearances can be deceiving. Staples' most recent collection, an EP titled Prima Donna, is devoted to the question of how it feels to suddenly be famous, the sensation of going from having nothing to having it all. It's an old and fundamental narrative in hip-hop, but rappers have always found a new way to breathe life into it. In the space of seven tracks and twenty-one minutes Staples brings forth a vision at once elegant and brutal, delighted and despondent, compact and sprawling, and above all else ambiguous to the point of disorientation. Though it begins with “Let It Shine,” the artist's desperate a cappella rendition of the gospel standard, and ends with “Big Time,” an ode to wealth achieved through gang violence, the EP is designed to be listened to in reverse order as well: since “Let It Shine” ends with a self-directed shot to the head, everything that follows can be viewed as the artist's life passing before his eyes. Images and postures are set forth to be taken at more than face value: the celebration of male dominance in the next-to-last track “Pimp Hand,” though unequivocal on its own, becomes, in the context of the larger narrative, an omen of self-destruction. The EP transforms his sense of freedom into a terrifying sense of displacement, but that displacement becomes the occasion for a different mode of freedom—the freedom to interpret. This double-sided nature extends to the sound of the songs themselves, which alternate between interludes where Staples sings slowly, somberly, and in isolation and main tracks with inorganic, dissonant sound textures where the artist spins out elaborate, high-powered verses witnessing to the alienation of new wealth and status. Joining a dizzying array of digital skitters and blips with distorted and sub-verbal vocal samples and booming bass notes, the production's worrying, abstracted spirit mirrors the artist's confusion and unreality. The extremity of this situation leads him to turn to religion. Though Staples has been vocal about his mistrust of religion in his past work, he finds himself “holding on to what the pastor say” and singing “Let It Shine” before his death. But faith also figures in another sense: “You're a star, they say, you mean so much to me,” Staples repeats during an interlude. It becomes clear that part of the incredible pressure being laid on him comes from fans with unnaturally high expectations. “People need to know what they do to their artists,” Staples says: by treating artists like gods they rob them of their humanity. As in Kanye West, the imagery of light in “Let It Shine” unites celebrity and religion—but with Staples the image distills a poisonous tendency common to both. It's hardly surprising when artists, spoiled rotten, turn toxic to themselves. Given this, it becomes less surprising why a newly famous artist would release a collection centered on the process of going mad to the point of self-destruction. Most tracks highlight verses and images that are as inventive as they are fearful. Death lurks within and without: “I just wanna be da Vinci, baby, why they wanna kill me, baby? Feeling like a pop star, music drive a nigga crazy.” Art is an extension of humanity as well as its madness: “You have to be human to have problems,” says Staples, but “you have to be absolutely crazy to want to talk about them.” Yet art also offers relief from lunacy. The voice of reason and stability on Prima Donna is never stronger than on “War Ready,” which samples verses from Outkast's “ATLiens” where Andre 3000 describes how he found an outlet for his rage in art and not violence. It's clear that Staples has found, in conversations with the elder artist, some of the wisdom and experience he seeks. “I'm glad he's able to give me advice and help me to become a better person. Become more of what I can be.” Still, as the structure of Prima Donna (and Staples' career trajectory as a whole) suggests, he can't move forward without falling back into his past. The central track “Loco” is haunted by voices representing old girlfriends; the last three tracks return him to his bygone gang life and lingo. Staples has always been a distinctive character. “My friends have always said 'Vince is the weird one,'” he says. “It's always been accepted, that's why I don't feel the need to change. My friends have always pushed me to be myself.” Despite his isolation and introspection, he never forgets the people who, even in an unforgiving environment, gave him the space to develop his character and talent; Prima Donna is, among other things, a request to his audience for the same tolerance and respect he once received from his friends in Ramona Park. Perhaps it's also one more reminder to himself that no matter how far from Long Beach he gets, the gravity of the place will never leave him. Vince Staples is still stuck in his ways, but now that stubbornness gives him a chance to move the world. In a world of full of painful departures, his art gives listeners reason to believe that, somehow, as he advances, the people who have left him and the people who he's left behind will still be waiting for him at the end. with special guest Kilo Kish

The Menzingers - Irving Plaza
March 30, 2017 - New York

The Menzingers will release their eagerly awaited fifth full-length After the Party on February 3, 2017. The album arrives as the follow-up to the Philadelphia-based band's widely acclaimed Rented World. Pre-orders for After The Party are available here. Produced by Will Yip (Title Fight, Balance & Composure, Pianos Become the Teeth), After the Party taps into the Menzingers' everyman romanticism to reflect on getting older but not quite growing up. Throughout the album, singer/guitarists Greg Barnett and Tom May, bassist Eric Keen, and drummer Joe Godino offset that deeply nuanced songwriting with anthemic harmonies, furious power chords, and larger-than-life melodies. "We spent our 20s living in a rowdy kind of way, and now we're at a point where it seems like everyone in our lives is moving in different directions," says May of the inspiration behind After the Party. Adds Barnett: "We're turning 30 now, and there's this idea that that's when real life comes on. In a way this album is us saying, 'We don't have to grow up or get boring—we can keep on having a good time doing what we love.'" "Bad Catholics" follows the release of After the Party's lead single "Lookers," which premiered on Noisey in August. The Menzingers formed as teenagers in their hometown of Scranton in 2006, then later relocated to Philadelphia. The band made their Epitaph debut with 2012's On The Impossible Past, which was voted Album of the Year by Absolute Punk and Punk News. Released in 2014, Rented World was praised as "packed with clever songwriting" by The New York Times and "a colossal fist-pumper" by Stereogum.

"The stage is where I have always lived; where I've expressed my deepest emotions and supreme joys." ANN continues: "I suppose I am addicted to it. I've never been much good at talking, but I can sing, and when I sing I connect with people in a much deeper, higher way." What will fans experience at these shows? "People can expect the unexpected in 2017," ANN says. "A beautiful, classy set with an elegant, artistic production…The music will be a mix of songs that have powered my life; iconic soul stirring covers, songs from my years of solo work and the unforgettable songs of Heart." Musicians on board for the ANN WILSON OF HEART tour include Craig Bartock on guitar (Heart member for a dozen years, who also performed in the Ann Wilson Thing for two years) from San Francisco; Andy Stoller on bass (the Ann Wilson Thing member for two years) from Seattle; Denny Fongheiser on drums and percussion (Heart member in the 1990's for two years) from Los Angeles. The name for the upcoming tour, explains ANN, "is to give people a point of recognition; to help people understand who I am and where I came from." The ANN WILSON OF HEART dates follow the release of HEART's critically acclaimed 2016 BEAUTIFUL BROKEN album and summer headlining tour with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Cheap Trick, along with HEART solo shows before and after. "Heart is always evolving, changing," says ANN. "It is a living organism. Right now it's in a cocoon of metamorphosis, and we will see what emerges when the time is right."

Rodney Crowell (album release) - City Winery
March 30, 2017 - New York

Rodney Crowell Great songwriters are said to reveal themselves through their work; their candor and transparency of soul is the key to the listener's empathic heart and the culture's admiration. But the lions of country songwriting, idolized and covered in magazines as they are, can sometimes feel like statues carved in marble, not fleshy, visceral human beings who've been scared, scarred and small just like us. And that's why Rodney Crowell, who completed an astonishing personal pilgrimage from great American songwriter to laudable author with his 2011 memoir "Chinaberry Sidewalks," stands apart. We meet in those pages someone we thought we knew: the wiry and slender guitarist in Emmylou Harris's first Hot Band, the young prote?ge? of Guy Clark and Mickey Newbury, the icy cool country star and Grammy winner of the 1980s, the longtime professional partner and husband of Rosanne Cash, the Cherry Bombs bandmate of Vince Gill and Tony Brown, the comeback kid of the 2000s whose incisive, quasi-autobiographical album cycle secured him a Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting from the Americana Music Association. But in "Chinaberry Sidewalks," his acclaimed book, we get a portrait of the artist as young man and boy, a story that's more than incidental to the artist he'd become. We recognize the wrinkles and complexities and wounds that would make his lyrics so relatable and shaded. We discover why Crowell has said that in the genetic mingling of his articulate, word-loving mother and his country musician father, he believes he was born to write songs. Crowell's work and career sets a benchmark for commercial success and lifelong artistic ambition and integrity in country music. His compositions, including "Til I Gain Control Again," "I Ain't Livin' Long Like This," "Song For The Life" and "Ashes By Now" have been widely and successfully covered by legendary singers. But he led the way as a recording artist, achieving a dazzling run of radio hits in the 1980s, followed by a series of more personal albums in the 2000s that secured his place as much more than a chart topper. He's had songs as an artist or writer in the top ten in every decade since the 1970s, including latter-day landmarks "Please Remember Me" and "Making Memories of Us." He's a Grammy Award winner, a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the recipient of the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting from the Americana Music Association. Crowell writes a number of songs in his early 20s that will become his classics, thanks in large part to the perceptive respect and engagement of Emmylou Harris. The new country star records "Til I Gain Control Again," which leads to their meeting. After he plays rhythm guitar with her in Austin one night, she invites him to move to California in 1975 to join her Hot Band, beginning a lifelong relationship that's proven one of the most fruitful and enriching in Americana music. Harris becomes but one of many artists who record Crowell songs. Even before launching as a recording artist himself, his songwriting is widely acknowledged. Things move faster. He launches the band The Cherry Bombs with friends Vince Gill and Tony Brown, both of whom are destined for stardom in various sides of the music business. Crowell is signed to Warner Bros. Records and releases his solo debut album Ain't Living Long Like This. A year later, in 1979, he marries musical collaborator Rosanne Cash and they begin a family. The records he produces with his wife prove more successful commercially than his own, yet Crowell is undaunted, proud of his role as her producer and as a songwriter of expanding scope, including a breakthrough pop/rock hit in Bob Seger's version of "Shame On The Moon." Crowell releases But What Will The Neighbors Think and a self-titled album, whose singles just scratch the Top 30. He leaves Warner Bros. and five years pass before he finds a new chance as a featured recording artist. Columbia Records releases Street Language, co-produced with Memphis keyboard legend Booker T. Jones, and though it consolidates his cult following, it languishes commercially. That he's well into his 50s before granting himself credit as a fully realized singer speaks to the humility and the flavor of ambition that's fueled Crowell's career. As the 2000s progress, accumulated recognition of Rodney Crowell bring forth a series of accolades. But the work continues. He makes the album Kin as a writing collaboration with Mary Karr, on which a range of remarkable artists and friends take vocal turns, including Norah Jones, Vince Gill and Lucinda Williams. The collaborative ethic continues as he makes Old Yellow Moon, a long-awaited duet album with his old muse and friend Emmylou Harris. It is recognized as the Americana Music Association Album of the Year and their duo, elevated by an extensive and well-received tour, is also an AMA winner. With a new album titled Tarpaper Sky coming in the Spring of 2014, Rodney Crowell is in full voice and fully engaged in his musical present and future.

Samaritan’s Purse Presents: Facing Darkness - Union Square 14
March 30, 2017 - New York

As the Ebola pandemic was sweeping across West Africa in the spring of 2014, one organization was willing to step up and commit its people and resources to provide comfort, compassion, and care to the hurting people of Africa, all in the Name of Jesus. But when the deadly virus infected its own medical personnel, including Dr. Kent Brantly, the epic crisis truly hit home for Samaritan’s Purse and its leader Franklin Graham. FACING DARKNESS tells the incredible true story of how—with faith, determination, and prayer—the ministry moved mountains … and God performed a miracle! Following this moving story, audiences will hear from Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham about the organization’s mission and Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American to survive Ebola, on how the relief team’s lives have changed since the epidemic in West Africa. For individuals, groups, and families, Facing Darkness tells the true story of the pandemic that gripped the world—and the faith that stood in its path.

Aldous Harding - Rough Trade NYC
March 30, 2017 - Brooklyn

Aldous Harding's music is not for the faint of heart. Disarming in its desolate imagery and stark instrumentation, it deals with the raw materials of life: death, birth, grief and love. There are few happy endings, but the power is in how Harding enters into battle; with a dancer's grace and a boxer's stance. Sometimes reminiscent of 60s-era folk singers Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs, Harding's work lies in more harsh terrain than her forebears - piercing the long history of the genre with a grit and sincerity rarely encountered. Somewhat out of step with the 21st Century, Aldous' music is accompanied by wry wit and tenacious gall that will see her become a true stayer in the music world. Residing in New Zealand's Southern port town of Lyttelton, Aldous has received attention and accolades from some of the most illustrious corners of the music industry. Her self- titled debut album received 4 stars in MOJO and Uncut, while UK blog The 405 hailed her a "toweringly talented song writer".

An Evening with Holly Bowling - Iridium
March 30, 2017 - New York

Holly Bowling is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There's one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly's devotion to the legendary rock band Phish. Having attended over 300 shows by the Burlington-based quartet, she became obsessed by their famous rendition of "Tweezer" from Lake Tahoe on July 31, 2013. It led Holly to transcribe this 37-minute improvisational masterpiece note-for-note and arrange it for solo piano. The process, both painstaking and fulfilling, inspired her to transform other Phish songs and well-known live jams into solo piano interpretations. Holly's breathtaking renditions of Phish classics like "It's Ice," "The Squirming Coil" and "Harry Hood" serve not only as a tribute to the modern day kings of jam, but stand on their own as fully developed classical pieces. The past year has seen Holly expand her repertoire into the realm of the Grateful Dead, including an "Eyes of the World" based on the band's spectacular exploratory June 18, 1974 performance at Freedom Hall. Using classical piano technique to reinterpret these jamband luminaries, Holly's live performances infuse new with old, tradition with surreal, and creates a concert experience like nothing else in the music world.

Cole - Metropolitan Room
March 30, 2017 - New York

From Cole ... with Love Pop/R&B artist, COLE (formerly Jeremy Cole) is a seasoned vocal talent. Born and raised in Wilmington, DE, COLE basically grew up on the stage. Most of his influences came from Pop, R&B, Rock, and Country music from the 80s and 90s. A graduate of the Creative and Performing Arts High School in Philadelphia (the same school that produced Boys II Men, Questlove, Bilal, and Jazmine Sullivan, among others), COLE relocated to NYC at the young age of 18 initially to study acting. He stayed after signing his first management deal at the age of 20, eventually calling Brooklyn home. He has appeared on NBC's hit, "The Voice" and is a veteran of television's legendary "Showtime at the Apollo". He is also a former session singer for Cynthia Biggs (co-writer of Patti LaBelle's "If Only You Knew), and a one-time background singer for Elisabeth Withers (star of Broadway's "The Color Purple").

Persuade Me - The Greene Space
March 30, 2017 - New York

Are you persuadable? Is your worldview set in stone, or are you open to different perspectives? Instead of enduring somebody shouting at you, are you willing to let somebody convince you? Elie Mystal, managing editor of Above the Law and More Perfect legal editor, will try to convince a guest, a judge, an audience — pretty much anyone with ears — to go against the conventional wisdom. The first issue we’ll tackle: hate crimes. Slate writer Mark Joseph Stern will argue that we need laws against them, that our criminal justice system depends on it, and that it’s a moral imperative to punish hate. But is there another way to punish hate without prosecuting what's in a person's heart? Elie says yes. A crime is a crime is a crime. Dueling talking points never persuaded anybody, so we're looking for an interactive audience that will ask questions, voice disagreements, cheer, hiss, and generally be participants in their own seduction. If you've got rotting vegetables, bring them. This isn't a safe space for bad arguments, but it is one for aerodynamic food.

Choral classics performed by MasterVoices have included Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and St. John Passion, Brahms’ Requiem, Britten’s War Requiem, Fauré’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s The Creation, Mozart’s Requiem, Orff’s Carmina Burana, and Verdi’s Requiem. The company has presented several important premieres, including the U.S. premieres of Dvorak’s Dmitri and Handel’s Jupiter in Argos, and the NY premieres of Respighi’s La Fiamma, Glass’s The Juniper Tree, and Gordon’s The Grapes of Wrath. Other rarely heard operas presented in concert have included Bellini’s Beatrice di Tenda, Tchaikovsky’s Maid of Orleans, Rossini’s Moïse et Pharaon, and Joplin’s Treemonisha. Throughout its history, MasterVoices has specialized in presenting rarely heard works of musical theater and standard works with a fresh approach, including Bernstein’s A White House Cantata, Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado and The Pirates of Penzance, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, and Weill’s The Firebrand of Florence, Knickerbocker Holiday, and the world premiere of a concert version of The Road of Promise.

Lambchop - The Bowery Ballroom
March 30, 2017 - NYC

Lambchop It's been nearly two decades since Lambchop released its first album, at the time pronouncing itself "Nashville's most fucked-up country band." Provocative it may have been, but the description made sense: at the heart of all that ruckus was a band at once defying and embracing the musical legacy of its hometown. Since then, Lambchop has evolved into an accomplished ensemble, adding palpable depth and substance to singer-songwriter-guitarist Kurt Wagner's songs – and the band sounds as commanding as ever on its 11th album, Mr. M, a collection of meditations on love and loss and the detritus of everyday existence. Sloppy Heads Hear the band that put Brooklyn on the map – the NY Times says, "They may make the greatest rock of all." THE SLOPPY HEADS! Thrill to the electrifying guitar wizardry of Jimmy Jumpjump! Gasp at the audacity of the legendary Ariella Stok aka Starmaiden to whom shame is but a word in the dictionary! Grope to the exotic jungle rhythms of Bill the Drummer! In one of their sought after East Coast appearances since the release of their first album, Useless Smile on Shrimper Records. Bop on down to see them perform live in concert, where anything can happen and usually does. Fun for kids from 2 to 82.

Vince Staples - Terminal 5
March 30, 2017 - New York

Seven years ago, Vince Staples was invisible. He was a youth tied to the world by group identities that defined him, mostly, by what he was not. Whether it was his city, his neighborhood, his family's economic class, or his race, he could find himself only in contrast and negation. Just as being from Long Beach meant he belonged in no other city, living near Ramona Park on Long Beach's north side meant he belonged in no other neighborhood. Changing places in the world was impossible while his family was struggling, and the impossibility of moving was compounded by the exclusionary, racist housing policies typical of Los Angeles, Southern California, and the United States as a whole. But now he's highly visible. His presence is so appealing that people will pay money to see him; his thoughts are so compelling that people will pay to hear him speak his mind. He has enough money to provide for his family. He has enough money to move out of Long Beach. He can travel the world. He's a rapper who has made a name for himself by offering, with great honesty and precision, a perspective on his former life. After the release of Summertime '06, an album whose calm power and retrospective clarity garnered unanimous critical praise, more doors have been opened for him than he can walk through. He's gone from being nearly completely trapped to possessing what appears to be total freedom. Yet appearances can be deceiving. Staples' most recent collection, an EP titled Prima Donna, is devoted to the question of how it feels to suddenly be famous, the sensation of going from having nothing to having it all. It's an old and fundamental narrative in hip-hop, but rappers have always found a new way to breathe life into it. In the space of seven tracks and twenty-one minutes Staples brings forth a vision at once elegant and brutal, delighted and despondent, compact and sprawling, and above all else ambiguous to the point of disorientation. Though it begins with "Let It Shine," the artist's desperate a cappella rendition of the gospel standard, and ends with "Big Time," an ode to wealth achieved through gang violence, the EP is designed to be listened to in reverse order as well: since "Let It Shine" ends with a self-directed shot to the head, everything that follows can be viewed as the artist's life passing before his eyes. Images and postures are set forth to be taken at more than face value: the celebration of male dominance in the next-to-last track "Pimp Hand," though unequivocal on its own, becomes, in the context of the larger narrative, an omen of self-destruction.

Girls Night Out w/ Sean Sharp, DLO plus Special Guests - Webster Hall
March 30, 2017 -

FREE ADMISSION FOR LADIES 21+ REDUCED ADMISSION FOR GENTLEMEN BEFORE MIDNIGHT W RSVP Special Guests (Urban) Dj Sean Sharp began his djing career while he was still a student at Wesleyan University in CT. One day his Fraternity brother Smokey Fontaine showed up at school with a pair of Gemini turntables and a mixer. Sean and Smoke would spend countless hours practicing in their dorm room, blending and cutting up all of the records that they were able to borrow from the school's radio station. The duo soon began booking gigs on campus and eventually started getting booked at many of the neighboring colleges. After Wesleyan, Sean moved to New York to work as an intern at the Village Voice. In the city he once again hooked up with his partner Smokey and they began doing small parties and venues across the city. The pair hosted a weekly industry event at the Buddha Bar in the West Village. While working as a DJ, Sean continued to pursue his writing career. Sean has written numerous cover stories and features for various music magazines including Vibe, The Source, America Magazine and many others. One day out of the blue, Smoke and Sean got a call from the owners of Webster Hall to play in the basement (which is now known as The Studio) for a weekend. Due to the overwhelming crowd response from their appearance, the owners offered the pair a weekly residency at the venue. The Basement Party was born, and quickly became one of the most popular Hip-Hop parties in the city. When Smoke left to take an editorial position at a magazine, Sean kept the party going and eventually brought on DJ DLO, one of the greatest voices in NYC nightlife, as his new partner. Known for their high energy sets, Sean and DLO have played music in every room of Webster Hall and continue to be one of the club's prime attractions. Sean takes pride in his ability to mix various genres of music into a seamless blend of sonic goodness that keeps the dance floors packed with an eclectic group of people from around the world. DLo (Dance) Enrique Dexter Johnson also known as DJ D.L.O has been a resident DJ here at the legendary Webster Hall for fourteen years. His passion was always to become a DJ, so at the age of fifteen he started fulfilling his dream. Being that he started at a young age, he did not take it seriously until he seen a very close friend of his play at a house party. To see him control a huge crowd by mixing records and talking on the microphone really inspired Enrique more. As years went by, his close friend known as DJ Storm gave him an oppurtunity to open up for him at an event. The crowd loved what he did and was very responsive. Not long after being an opening DJ for DJ Storm, DJ D.L.O and DJ Storm became partners and would DJ at many different venues such as Club Quest, Club Visionz, Nocturnal, and Secrets. The clubs mentioned were all located in Staten Island New York. DJ D.L.O began to branch out more and started djaying at well known venues in NYC such as Club Ivy, Downtime, Secret lounge, T.O.N.Y, and Cheetah night club. In his recent years, he has worked with DJ's such as Funk Flex, Mister Cee, DJ Enuff, DJ Camilo, and Red Alert. Enrique also known as DJ D.L.O would like to give special thanks to these legendary disc jockeys; Dj Red Alert, Chuck Chillout, Kid Capri, Mr Magic, and Grandmaster Flash for inspiring him to be the great DJ he is today!

I Called Him Morgan - Lincoln Center
Through March 30, 2017 - Manhattan

On the night of February 19, 1972, Helen Morgan walked into the East Village bar Slug's Saloon with a gun in her handbag. She came to see her common-law husband, the great jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan, whom she had nursed through heroin addiction. They fought, he literally threw her out; then she walked back in and shot him, handed over her gun and waited for the police to arrive. Many years later, Helen was interviewed about her life with the brilliant but erratic musician, and the tapes of that interview are the backbone of this beautifully crafted and deeply affecting film from Kasper Collin (My Name Is Albert Ayler). An NYFF54 selection. A Submarine Entertainment release. Q&As with Kasper Collins Friday, March 24, 6:00pm (Moderated by jazz critic Gary Giddinns) Friday, March 24, 8:15pm Saturday, March 25, 6:00pm (Moderated by music historian Ashley Kahn)

Joffrey Ballet - David H Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
March 30, 2017 - Upper West SIde

The Joyce Theater Foundation is thrilled to bring The Joffrey Ballet to New York to perform Krzysztof Pastor's magnificent re-mounting of his 2008 production of Romeo & Juliet, which had its U.S. premiere in Chicago with the Joffrey in spring 2014. Set in 20th century Italian society, this updated version of the classic story is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it goes beyond an exploration of family strife to position Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of complicated politics and war. Propelled by Sergei Prokofiev's lushly dramatic 1935 score - accompanied by the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra: Members of the Chicago Philharmonic - Pastor's classical yet contemporary ballet version of Romeo & Juliet, while without words, "might just be the most eloquent, rapturous, emotionally searing 'translation' of the story you will ever see." – The Chicago Sun-Times The Joyce gala evening will take place on Thursday, March 30. It will offer the chance to see this revered company perform Body of Your Dreams by Myles Thatcher, Fool's Paradise by Christopher Wheeldon, and Bells by Yuri Possokhov.

The Birth of Love - Walter Reade Theater
March 30, 2017 - Manhattan

At age 45, Garrel made this film that focuses on the ecology of family life. Two young screen icons of a previous generation—Jean-Pierre Léaud and Lou Castel (Fists in the Pocket)—turn in vivid performances as men who may be mature in years, but are perhaps more than a little emotionally arrested. The late cinematographer Raoul Coutard, Godard's longtime righthand cameraman, turns his illuminating eye on their very thoughts in this deeply moving investigation of love. Print courtesy of the Institut Français.

Irma Vep - Walter Reade Theater
March 30, 2017 - Manhattan

Olivier Assayas's wildly inventive valentine to movies and moviemaking casts an aging Jean-Pierre Léaud as the unstable, hypersensitive New Wave director René Vidal, whose behavior wavers between that of a tormented old man and a capricious child as he struggles to make sense of his update of Louis Feuillade's silent classic Les Vampires. Maggie Cheung plays the eponymous, latex-clad cat burglar at the center of the artistic maelstrom overseen by Vidal. A latter-day Day for Night that emphasizes the chaotic realities and strange, circus-like atmosphere of filmmaking over its romantic allure, Irma Vep is one of the great movies about what happens before "action" and after "cut."

Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) - Doug Varone and Dancers
March 31, 2017 - Brooklyn

“Varone’s ornate movement tends to crackle like electricity: Churning this way and that, it appears to be propelled less by muscles and bones than by centrifugal force.” —The New York Times Doug Varone and Dancers celebrate 30 years of impassioned choreography with three works representing the past, present, and future of this peerless company. Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994), inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire. Varone’s latest work Folded, set to music by MacArthur fellow Julia Wolfe, renders the intimate interplay between two dancers falling in and out of sync. And in ReComposed, inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s Dystopia.

Trevor Noah - Prudential Hall
March 31, 2017 - Newark

Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, makes his NJPAC debut with an evening of stand-up comedy. Before he was introduced to U.S. audiences in 2014, when he took over for Jon Stewart as the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Noah was already the most successful comedian in Africa. He extended his reach when he became the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman. Since then, Noah has become one of the world’s brightest comic masterminds, thanks in part to his one-man Comedy Central special, Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation. Filmed at Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Theatre, Lost in Translation brings Noah's unique world-view and global analysis of American culture to the forefront – with results that are as thoughtful as they are hilarious. In his material, Noah addresses major domestic and international events of the past year, sharing his outlook on terrorism, racial tensions in America – even what it was like being African and traveling into the U.S. during the Ebola crisis. Last year also saw the publication of Noah’s New York Times bestseller, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, his compelling and hilarious memoir about coming-of-age during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah’s stand-up performances have played to sold-out audiences at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, at the Sydney Opera House, and at other top venues around the world – so get your tickets now.

Chicano Batman 79.5, Sad Girl - Bowery Ballroom
March 31, 2017 - New York

Chicano Batman Chicano Batman is your sonic outlet from monotony back into the soul. Ethnomusicologists in their own right, Chicano Batman are students of rhythm, globe trotting on a quest to reclaim and represent the musical roots of their past generations. Following a run of dates opening for Jack White on his Lazaretto tour, the band blew away fans at last year’s Coachella before hitting the road with Alabama Shakes. Along the way, the quartet’s Latin-psych-slow-jam soul with a pinch of surf-rock cumbia has been highlighted by everyone from Rolling Stone, LA Times, Entertainment Weekly and Paste to The New York Times, Under The Radar and Noisey. Chicano Batman recently released “Black Lipstick”, an organ soaked track featuring back up vocals by Saudia Yasmein. Originally set to be produced by Ikey Owens (Jack White, Mars Volta) before his unfortunate passing, the track was recorded and produced by Owens’ studio partner Antoine Arvizu. Summer 2016 will see Chicano Batman performing at Bonnaroo, XPoNential Fest, Levitation as they finish up their new album. 79.5 79.5 drips silky, raw-honeyed R&B emotion and radiates luxurious triple-female vocal harmonies. Their voices erupt into soulful solos riding over the sonic fabric of slick, heavy-hitting beats & bass silhouetted by organ, percussive funk guitar, and lavish tenor sax & flute. 79.5 blends future sounds and tones with elements of 90s R&B, psych rock, and soul, creating a sound entirely their own. In April, 79.5 signed with Big Crown Records, and cut their first full length LP, with producer Leon Michels. photo credit: Rosie Cohe

Hippo Campus With Special Guest Magic City Hippies - Irving Plaza
March 31, 2017 - New York

"There's a moment in growing up when it becomes clear that the road you walk is your own to cultivate." A surprisingly profound sentiment for a band of 21-year olds. Nevertheless, it's a sentiment that animates much of? landmark, the debut album from Minneapolis' Hippo Campus. landmark's recording, helmed by BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, etc.), primarily took place at Sonic Ranch, with finishing touches applied at Pachyderm Studios in the band's native Minnesota. The ranch, a residential studio located on a 2300-acre pecan farm near the border between Texas and Mexico, represented a big shift for four young men from the northern Midwest's cooler climes. "You're just in the middle of the desert, and there are these pecan trees for as far as you can see," says Stocker. "It's pretty surreal—kind of like a dream." Dreams are where the mind's deepest desires manifest, so it's fitting ?landmark is rife with up-close lyrics that reflect the struggles of crash-landing into an always-on world. "It's our most honest release yet, but it didn't start that way at all," says Luppen. "There are two halves to the record—the first half represents our first stage of writing, where we're showing off our ironic side and criticizing the culture of social media, and the youth culture that we're a huge part of now. It's a world we've been forced to plug into, whether we want to or not, and we talk about our qualms with that world." Perhaps nowhere on the album are those qualms more evident than on "Western Kids," one of ?landmark's most upbeat numbers, but also one of its most contemptuous: "I just love this, I swear I'll go viral, from the burbs to the streets now it's a revival," sings Luppen, tongue firmly planted in cheek. "The spirit is found in the idealistically idle, the age of excess." Meanwhile, "Sun Veins," the distortion-heavy track that opens the record, is a direct response to the expectations heaped upon the band as they grew: "'Sun Veins' represents an intense period in my life when I wanted to burn everything down, and it represents this moment of absolute clarity," says Luppen. "I'm talking about a person, but at the same time I'm talking about myself and us as a band. Throughout the past year, I thought that I had to be different and that the band had to be different, but it turned out that we had to look more inward and find ourselves again." Indeed, ?landmark invites introspection and close listening—even its most upbeat songs are rich with details, like the whistling break that lands in the middle of the galloping "Simple Season" or the spangles of guitar that slice through the clamor of "Tuesday." Elsewhere, the second half of?landmark is dominated by a somber stretch that includes the lush "Monsoon," which slowly blooms into a quiet freak-out of reverb and synth, a revelation in the context of the band's catalog. "It was a breakthrough—we could use the studio and make something transcendent," says Luppen. Transcendence doesn't come easy. It's usually the payoff to a long journey. And while Hippo Campus' journey is still being written, with ?landmark, the band has never seemed more confident in the road they're walking.

Tift Merritt (Album Release) - City Winery
March 31, 2017 - New York

Tift Merritt As 2015 began, I had somehow been on the road for the fastest, longest two years of my life. I had kicked the tires hard touring in support of my album Traveling Alone. I had recorded and toured with classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein. My friend Andrew Bird asked me to be in his old time band the Hands of Glory, so I pretended I was a member of the Carter family on guitar, and I watched him like a hawk to make sure he felt fully free; singing harmony with Andrew is not unlike flying. Suddenly, I was turning 40, getting divorced, and scared out of my mind. So I decided to take a year off the road to see what would happen to me if I just stopped touring… On a friend's ranch in Marfa, Texas, in the middle of the high plains without a car headlight in sight, I did just that, and when I did, I started to do what I always do: the humble work of marking life by writing. On the ranch, I wrote about the long straight roads in west Texas: the ones that make sense, that make you feel like what is behind you is indeed behind you and that good things are up ahead. 'Wait For Me' is a wish that life would run like that. Watching the ranch hands keep their daily routine, I wrote about keeping my own head down, pressing on, and the way that love persists and pushes forward no matter what happens, 'Love Soldiers On.' I watched birds learning to fly and bathe in the driveway dust at dusk in the front yard and wrote 'Icarus' about what they taught me. In my California cabin, I wrote every morning and hiked every afternoon, up the mountains to the East and along the rocky coast, farther than I had ever hiked, one exhausted foot after the other. 'Heartache is an Uphill Climb' began in the red mud on one particularly impossible incline. Once, having hiked farther than I realized, dark fell on me. The white lilies in a meadow began to glow like evening dresses as the moon rose in the changing light. 'Proclamation Bones' is a tribute to that unexpected beauty, to nature's secret nightlife. On return to NYC with Raymond Carver's All of Us: The Collected Poems in hand, his poem 'My Boat' leapt up like lightning; it wanted to be sung. In a hungover moment of joy coming out of a subway, 'Something Came Over Me' seeded itself. And the heavy sadness of memory washing over me as I looked out at the East River became 'Eastern Light'. Look, everyone knows that album bios are usually full of crap. How about this: This album weathered no doubt, Marlon Brando's ghost played bass and a fire-breathing dragon co-wrote the songs! Let's be clear about something – What made my time off special was that I had a regular writing routine. I was private. I followed my heart and my craft. The story of being a writer is the story of being devoted over a long time. What I hate most about bios is that they trade the small virtue of the writing life for pretending that artists and albums spring forth fully formed, trimming the tale to fit the spotlight. I'm more comfortable being real about things. I took my life and synthesized it through my writing with an intensity that no one but the birds saw but that hopefully you can feel. And life continued. Let the real story here be that there is love and beauty in the mess of dedication. And life did continue. In Fall, my friend MC Taylor asked me to be a part of his new Hiss Golden Messenger album. About the same time, to my delight and surprise, I realized my boyfriend and I were expecting a child. I performed with HGM just as I began to show; MC and his band talked on and on about how North Carolina was a place you could actually raise a child AND be a musician. My roots and my friends pulled. In an airport, I bumped into my friend Sam Beam. He said I could send him my songs, and when I did and he said, "I can tell you've been working hard on your writing," I was filled with the gratefulness which comes from being heard. I couldn't believe he wanted in on the record making party, along with my favorite musicians, for four days because that was what I could afford. One long night before leaving for the studio, I stared at the ceiling of my NYC apartment. The leaves, the streetlights, and the sirens drew a shadow vine. I cried for dreams that were gone, and I gathered myself for those to come. I recorded in Los Angeles six months pregnant and then set off for home to figure out what a onesie was. I showed up back in my hometown knocked about a little by the world thinking maybe my life was a country song, but maybe it was a really good country song. What strikes me most when I am writing these days is the changing nature of things. Sometimes sex matters deeply, sometimes family eclipses all; sometimes aloneness is hell, sometimes it is a refuge. Sometimes hometowns are constricting; sometimes they are a sight for sore eyes. We do our damnedest. For all the times we are watered down and compromise, we can become rigid and impossible just as easily. We right ourselves as best we can and carry on. It is a loose thread that holds us best together in this life. Not too tight, not too planned, enough give to stand what tangles us but ties us nonetheless. Ties us to each other in some unseen pattern, to our actions, to the songs that come out of us, to the seasons that pass through us. We press on, love persists, and we must trust the unknowable pattern we are making. My little daughter is sleeping beside me now, and what I hope for her is what I will tell you now. May these threads be joyful; not heavy chains, but light like wings, like starlight, like laughter. Empty your pockets of stones, that light-hearted you may go (for you must go), with the stitch of the world, into the stitch of the world.

Eliane Elias - Birdland
Through March 31, 2017 - New York

GRAMMY®-winning pianist/singer/songwriter Eliane Elias is known for her distinctive and immediately recognizable musical style which blends her Brazilian roots and sensuous, alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, classical and compositional skills. Two years after seducing fans with her GRAMMY®-winning Made in Brazil (Best Latin Jazz Album), Elias returns with the ebullient Dance of Time, set for release on March 24, 2017 via Concord Jazz. Dance of Time, like its predecessor, was recorded in Brazil. "Recording in Brazil was such a high," explains Elias as to why she returned to the country. But thematically, Dance of Time is its own beautiful beast. Whereas Made in Brazil was a tantalizing toast to three generations of Brazilian composers, Dance of Time's themes are multifold.

Livingston Taylor - The Cutting Room
March 31, 2017 - New York

Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar at the age of 13, beginning a 40-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate and Hugh. Livingston recorded his first record at the age of 18 and has continued to create well crafted, introspective, and original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide. From top-40 hits "I Will Be in Love with You" and "I'll Come Running," to "I Can Dream of You" and "Boatman," both recorded by his brother James, Livingston's creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres—folk, pop, gospel, jazz—and from upbeat storytelling to touching ballads. Livingston has never stopped performing since those early coffeehouse days, touring with major artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett and Jethro Tull, and he maintains a busy concert schedule of over 80 shows a year. He is a natural performer, peppering his shows with personal stories, anecdotes and ineffable warmth that connect him to his fans. His relaxed on-stage presence belies the depth of his musical knowledge, and fans might just as often be treated to a classic Gershwin or something from the best of Broadway. Livingston is a full professor at Berklee College of Music, where he has taught a Stage Performance course since 1989. He teaches young artists invaluable lessons learned over the course of an extensive career on the road; the course is consistently voted the most popular at the College. His book, Stage Performance, released in 2011 offers those lessons to anyone who is interested in elevating their presentation standards to professional standards. Livingston's latest album, Blue Sky, was released in the spring of 2014. It is the third in a series of albums over the last decade that includes There You Are Again (2005) and Last Alaska Moon (2009). It completes a body of work that makes it clear that this artist is not slowing down.

Judith Owen featuring the legendary Leland Sklar - Iridium
March 31, 2017 - New York

Pianist-singer-songwriter Judith Owen is known for her love of musical variety and melding it into a great stylistic gumbo all her own. 'Somebody's Child' is the culmination of this mix: voice and piano front and centre, songs that are vignettes of life crafted from the perspective that we ARE all "somebody's child" – parental as well as planetary. An album about us. "By nature, I am a diverse musician. It's who I am because of all the music I grew up being exposed to, from opera to Sinatra, Joni to Stevie Wonder, and everything in between," says Judith. Whereas 2014's critically-acclaimed 'Ebb & Flow' was personal and very much a love letter to Laurel Canyon, 'Somebody's Child' takes a leap from the confessional to the observational, whilst recruiting the same crème de la crème of Los Angeles session musicians – bassist Leland Sklar, guitarist Waddy Wachtel and drummer Russell Kunkel – and incorporating them with her British-based musicians – master percussionist Pedro Segundo and sublime cellist Gabriella Swallow – to create a fresh new dynamic. "It's a very British thing where you love mixing all those styles. It's classical. It's pop. There's jazz. There's rhythm and blues. Then there's rock thrown in there too," Judith emphasizes, as evident in the jewel-like, pastoral and melancholic 'No More Goodbyes' and the staccato, jazzy rocker 'We Give In'. The opening song, and title track, is intimately framed with a string quartet and "is the heart of the record. It sets the tone – a mission statement. I was in New York, in the middle of winter, and I saw this beautiful young woman, about nine months pregnant, barefoot in the snow, wearing a trash bag, that was all she had, stomach out and in a state. I was crossing the street, with everybody else, trying to avoid her, when I thought, "That's somebody's child, and if my life had been different, that could have been me. Or any of us! We're all so dehumanized, and this whole record is about reconnecting with our humanity, really seeing what's around us, discarding, even if it is just for a moment, our constant state of denial." Until recently, her pinpoint sense of observation was often turned inwards as she concentrated on her own feelings. "I made 'Ebb & Flow' right after my father passed away," she explains, referring to her opera singer father who loomed large over her life. "Much later I wrote 'No More Goodbyes' about the hardest thing that any of us have to admit—that there's a relief in letting go, that there's a desire for pain to end." Even though that sounds serious, Judith emphasizes that "this is a much more life-affirming, joyful record." "'Mystery' is probably the most honest love song I've ever written. How any of us ever find love in the first place is hard enough; how any of us stay together is the true mystery" she gleefully admits. "There's no planning to it. The last verse, which is the most important – 'It takes patience, it takes time, today we might quarrel, tomorrow we'll be fine' – is the point of it all. It's the rough with the smooth." "I'm with someone who doesn't go by the rules romantically," she says of partner Harry Shearer (Spinal Tap, the Simpsons) "However, I'm with somebody who makes me laugh, who adores me, who I have the best time with". Judith turns these personal observations into the universal truths of 'Mystery' and 'That's Why I Love My Baby'. The latter features Harry on upright bass. "I get it now. It's the things he doesn't do that make me love him. Not doing the expected stuff. These are bookends," she reflects about one of her favourite songwriting tricks, composing two sets of lyrics around the same topic. Another pair of bookends 'Tell All Your Children' – all retro R&B cool with just a touch of Gaye – and 'I Know Why The Sun Shines' – which borrows from one of Sergei Rachmaninoff's best-loved piano phrases – are both sending a message about what we're doing to the planet (oil exploitation, fracking). "Sometimes I just have to put on a big, floppy hat, put a candelabra on the piano, and vent!" Developing first name character songs like the wonderfully-sketched 'Arianne' (inspired by a trip to the Berlin Wall), 'Josephine' and the "buddy" of first single 'Send Me A Line'—a social commentary on people, including herself, "not being present but preoccupied by technology"— came easy to her. "They're like tiny soap operas," she says about the compositions that are adorned so sympathetically by the stellar musicians. A Judith signature is also to turn the most unlikely song inside out. She's done it before with her tongue-in-cheek adaptation of the Deep Purple rock anthem 'Smoke On The Water' and Mungo Jerry's irresistible, irresponsible and politically incorrect 'In The Summertime'. This time, it's her languid interpretation of Roxy Music's 'More Than This', endorsed by none other than its creator Bryan Ferry whom she opened for last year, that lingers long in the memory. In fact it was recorded at Bryan's London studio on his piano. Not to mention her playful adaptation of 'Aquarius' from the rock musical 'Hair'. "I love playing with overtly earnest lyrics like these, and putting them in a totally different musical context. I'm a serious person who likes to laugh a lot. I need to." The album ends on the beautifully uplifting orchestral 'The Rain Is Gonna Fall' whose intentions are opposite to what one might think. Yes, it will rain but that is life and all will be ok. Let it rain. 'Ebb & Flow' was when many discovered Judith's highly seductive sound and was hailed as one of the releases of 2014 by The Independent newspaper in the UK, receiving further praise from Le Figaro in France, La Repubblica in Italy, Rolling Stone in Germany and the Wall Street Journal in the US. It also enjoyed sterling support at British radio, particularly from Jamie Cullum, Bob Harris and the late Sir Terry Wogan, stalwarts and tastemakers of the BBC Radio 2 network. All three hosted sessions featuring the Welsh-born songstress and demonstrated her commercial potential and wide-ranging appeal. In addition, 'Ebb and Flow' earned passionate support from Irish RTE Radio 1, Spanish RTNE Radio 3, German ARD Network, and Nordic National Radio and led to several key radio and television appearances on both sides of the Atlantic. Recording with Kunkel, Sklar and Wachtel, studio stalwarts behind Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Laura Nyro among others, and touring with them "served as this incredible calling card for me. I waited a long time to be able to work with some of my musical idols. I'm a late bloomer," she admits. With 'Somebody's Child', and its many moods and shades and a contemporary twist, Judith Owen seems well on her way into the Premier League of contemporary singer-songwriters and interpreters. Which is where she belongs . www.judithowen.net

Aimee Plauche presents The Octopus: fascinating, poorly understood, and often grouped under the misnomer "octopi". In this dance theater work, the intriguing cephalopod faces the miracles and pitfalls of its isolated existence. Captivating, Fun and Entertaining… Dance Entropy did the (almost) impossible by performing for children of all ages keeping them entertained and fascinated.” -Barbara Amarantis, New York City Parks Dept.

March Midnight Moment: Matteo Zamagni's Nature Abstraction - Times Square
Through March 31, 2017 - New York

In partnership with Moving Image Art Fair & Gazelli Art House, Times Square Arts presents artist Matteo Zamagni’s virtual reality film Nature Abstraction on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in March. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. Originally created in virtual reality and adapted for the screens of Times Square (a first for the Midnight Moment program), Nature Abstraction dives digitally into the vast complexities of three planets created through fractal formations. Zamagni’s floating fractals, inspired by altered states of mind, represent hidden structures of nature, allowing viewers to explore and view dimensions and biological forms that affect the physical world but are invisible to the eye. Partially processed through Google’s Deep Dream neural network, which recognizes features and creates visual iterations, the landscapes transform into psychedelic patterns and morph into shapes reminiscent of more familiar items like liquid or microchips. Nature Abstraction, which marks Times Square Arts' fourth year of partnership with Moving Image Art Fair, will also appear in Moving Image Art Fair's inaugural Immersive Media exhibition featuring virtual and augmented reality. The 2017 Moving Image Art Fair will take place from February 27-March 2. The work was previously exhibited in the exhibition, Interfaces(2015), at the Barbican, and in Gazelli Art House's VR group exhibition, Enter Through The Headset (2016).

Starting in Houston, Texas, Sarah quickly made a name for herself when she was named 'Best Local Comedian' by the Houston Press and later was the winner of the prestigious Houston's Funniest Contest.

March 31, 2017 - Brooklyn

Join Genspace + Orkan Telhan, the author of Designature, for a book release party! Orkan Telhan is interdisciplinary artist, designer and researcher who works at the cross section of art, design and biology. Designature explores the nature of agency—the essential “signature” found in everything. From the simplest forms of life to humans, machines, and everyday objects. The book features new kinds of signatures—living organisms, algorithms, tools, and visualizations—that are designed in light of new theories and technologies from artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, new materialism, and object-oriented ontology. These designs ultimately serve as critical reflections on society, and offer alternative forms of critique to urgent issues such as xenophobia, religious fundamentalism, and the ethics of manipulating nature.

Oslo - Lincoln Center, Vivian Beaumont Theater
Through March 31, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

Joffrey Ballet - David H Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
March 31, 2017 - Upper West SIde

The Joyce Theater Foundation is thrilled to bring The Joffrey Ballet to New York to perform Krzysztof Pastor's magnificent re-mounting of his 2008 production of Romeo & Juliet, which had its U.S. premiere in Chicago with the Joffrey in spring 2014. Set in 20th century Italian society, this updated version of the classic story is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it goes beyond an exploration of family strife to position Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of complicated politics and war. Propelled by Sergei Prokofiev's lushly dramatic 1935 score - accompanied by the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra: Members of the Chicago Philharmonic - Pastor's classical yet contemporary ballet version of Romeo & Juliet, while without words, "might just be the most eloquent, rapturous, emotionally searing 'translation' of the story you will ever see." – The Chicago Sun-Times The Joyce gala evening will take place on Thursday, March 30. It will offer the chance to see this revered company perform Body of Your Dreams by Myles Thatcher, Fool's Paradise by Christopher Wheeldon, and Bells by Yuri Possokhov.

Two English Girls - Walter Reade Theater
March 31, 2017 - New York

Based on a novel by Jules and Jim author Henri-Pierre Roché, Two English Girls plays variations on the earlier film's ménage à trois: here, a young writer (Jean-Pierre Léaud) falls in love with two beautiful sisters (Kika Markham and Sylvia Marriott) around the turn of the century. In this delicate and witty romance, all the principals so cherish each other that nothing but sacrifice can eventuate, and only the passionate contemplation of emotion remains. The desaturated color was meant to invoke early two-tone Technicolor, apt for a belle epoque love triangle.

Détective - Walter Reade Theater
March 31, 2017 - Manhattan

"I am a renaissance painter looking for commissions," said Godard of this project, which began as a gleam in producer Alain Sarde's eye: Paris, pulp fiction, Claude Brasseur, Nathalie Baye, Johnny Halliday, and an aging Jean-Pierre Léaud (in various disguises). After Godard and Anne-Marie Miéville finished adapting Sarde's story, the stuff about gangsters, detectives, and bad debts became a backdrop for the relationship between Brasseur's Emile and Baye's Françoise. A fraught shoot, but it resulted in a lovely film with surprising bursts of passion. Print courtesy of the Institut Français.

Out 1: Spectre - Walter Reade Theater
March 31, 2017 - Manhattan

Jacques Rivette's shortened re-edit of his 13-hour magnum opus, Out 1: Noli me tangere is less a condensed version of the original than a radical scrambling of it. The basic premise remains: Jean-Pierre Léaud and Juliet Berto are Parisian oddballs drawn into a sinister conspiracy involving two avant-garde theater troupes and an Illuminati-like secret society. But where its progenitor played out in slow-burn long takes, Spectre deploys intricate editing patterns to draw out tantalizing new meanings and connections. The result is both a fascinating companion piece and a singular work that stands on its own.

Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952–1965 - Grey Art Gallery at NYU
Through April 01, 2017 - New York

Examining the New York art scene during the fertile years between the apex of Abstract Expressionism and the rise of Pop Art and Minimalism, "Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952–1965" is the first show ever to survey this vital period from the vantage point of its artist-run galleries—crucibles of experimentation and innovation that radically changed the art world. With more than 200 paintings, sculptures, installations, drawings, photographs, ephemera, and films, the show reveals a scene that was much more diverse than has previously been acknowledged, with women and artists of color playing major roles. It features works by abstract and figurative painters and sculptors, as well as pioneers of installation and performance art. Artists range from well-known figures such as Jim Dine, Red Grooms, Allan Kaprow, Alex Katz, Yayoi Kusama, Claes Oldenburg, Yoko Ono, and Mark di Suvero, to those who deserve to be better known, including Emilio Cruz, Lois Dodd, Rosalyn Drexler, Sally Hazelet Drummond, Jean Follett, Lester Johnson, Boris Lurie, Jan Müller, and Aldo Tambellini. "Inventing Downtown" is curated by Melissa Rachleff, clinical associate professor in NYU’s Steinhardt School.

“Varone’s ornate movement tends to crackle like electricity: Churning this way and that, it appears to be propelled less by muscles and bones than by centrifugal force.” —The New York Times Doug Varone and Dancers celebrate 30 years of impassioned choreography with three works representing the past, present, and future of this peerless company. Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994), inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire. Varone’s latest work Folded, set to music by MacArthur fellow Julia Wolfe, renders the intimate interplay between two dancers falling in and out of sync. And in ReComposed, inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s Dystopia.

SALIF KEITA - The Town Hall
April 01, 2017 - New York

Salif Keita, known as the “Golden Voice of Africa,” is undoubtedly one of the most influential and important artists in African music. Born an albino, Keita was cast out by his family and ostracized by his community as his albinism was considered a sign of bad luck in Mandinka culture. He overcame these obstacles to become one of Africa’s most celebrated singers. In 1973, Keita joined the group Les Ambassadeurs - later called Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux - and rose to international fame in the 1970’s. In the early 1980’s Salif began a solo career and has gone on to become a superstar in Afropop music. Keita’s music blends together the traditional griot music of his Malian childhood with other West African influences from Guinea, the Ivory Coast, and Senegal, along with influences from Cuba, Spain, and Portugal. His latest album Talé immerses us in the digital fountain of youth, with a sound that references Remain in Light by Brian Eno and Talking Heads – artists who pioneered their own future with their quest for the sounds of West Africa.

Architects - Gramercy Theatre
April 01, 2017 - New York

With influences ranging from Hatebreed, to Shadows Fall, to the Dillinger Escape Plan, Brighton, England's Architects play a complex mixture of metalcore, death, and math metal, laced with alternately violent and comedic lyrics. After getting their start in 2005, Architects recorded their debut album, Nightmares, the very next year with a lineup consisting of twin brothers Tom (guitar) and Dan Searle (drums), Tim Hillier-Brook (guitar), Tim Lucas (bass), and Matt Johnson (vocals), but the latter was to be replaced on-stage by new frontman Sam Carter in January of 2007, during the last show of the band's subsequent tour. Later that year, Architects recorded their sophomore effort, Ruin (introducing new bass player Ali Dean), and signed a worldwide deal with Century Media for its re-release in 2008. Their first American tour was next on the agenda, and saw the group paired up with Suicide Silence, Beneath the Massacre, and the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, among other bands. Upon their return to England, Architects recorded their third album, to be titled Hollow Crown, which arrived in 2009. The band took its sound in a relatively subdued, post-hardcore direction on its fourth album, 2011's Here and Now, but transitioned back to a heavier sound the following year on Daybreaker. The band continued to expand their sound, pushing things in both extreme and ambient directions on their sixth album, Lost Forever // Lost Together, which appeared in 2014. Two years later, the band issued All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, which they described as their "heaviest and darkest work" to date.

Bob Schneider w/ Sugar Dirt & Sand - City Winery
April 01, 2017 - New York

Bob Schneider Austin-based singer/songwriter/creative force of nature Bob Schneider has a guy in his band, Oliver Steck, who plays keyboards, accordion, trumpet and assorted whistles and horns. Also, Schneider notes, "Oliver also does a lot of dancing. He doesn't necessarily get paid for the dancing. He does it because he can't not." Apparently, the same could be said of Schneider in terms of artistic endeavors in general. He can't not be creating something. Sometimes it's writing songs — he has written some 2,000 songs in the past 16 years — sometimes it's creating videos to accompany some of those songs and sometimes it's making gallery-ready art, including paintings and collages. He also has played a wedding singer in an indie film, written two books and penned a rock opera that has a title that can't be printed in a family newspaper. Some of his musical mates even wonder when — or whether — he ever sleeps. "I love making things, so that's what I spend a lot of my time doing," says Schneider… "I do have periods where I feel like I'll never create anything that's any good ever again. The good news is, it doesn't stop me from creating things, and eventually that feeling will pass and I can look over the stuff that I've made and figure out which of it is better than the other stuff. Because I like to do it so much, I'll end up with quite a bit of it at the end of the year." Schneider has been a recording artist for 25 years, putting out his first record ("Party Till You're Dead") in 1991 as frontman for Joe Rockhead, a funk-rock combo in the vein of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That band was followed by his best-known group, Ugly Americans, which toured with the Dave Matthews Band and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Ugly Americans was a kind of alt-rock supergroup, with former members of Cracker, Poi Dog Pondering and Mojo Nixon's band. Schneider also fronted a full-on funk ensemble that played around Austin in the late 1990s called The Scabs, at the same time he was establishing himself as a solo artist. His first solo project, "Songs Sung and Played on Guitar at the Same Time," came out in 1998, and he's gone on to record an almost inconceivably diverse and eclectic array of songs since then, with his work making it onto the soundtracks of seven major motion pictures (and one indie film). All told, Schneider has been the singer and main songwriter on nearly 30 studio albums, and he has been named Musician of the Year six times at the Austin Music Awards. Considering the renowned strength of the music scene in Austin, that's saying something. His artistry coupled with his movie-star looks and boyish charm makes it a wonder he's not a household name around the rest of the country the way he is in Austin. The past few years, Schneider has grouped the songs he's written in a year under an album title, just to kind of keep track of when they were written. Titles for recent years have included "Here's the Deal," "The Ever Increasing Need to Succeed," "Into the Great Unknown" and "Mental Problems." This year's theme (and the name of his current concert tour) is "The Practical Guide to Everything." Schneider has a fantastic website where fans can listen to all of the songs from the three five- song "King Kong Suite" EPs he released last year, with humorous commentary from Schneider himself between songs. The website also has the 10 videos he created for "King Kong" songs using public-domain found footage, including the menacing "Black Mountain" video that culls scenes from Francis Ford Coppola's directorial debut. The website also offers a chance to stream his regular Monday evening shows at Austin's Saxon Pub. Adapted from "Bob Schneider surfs an ocean of creative juices" written by Randy Erickson and published in the LaCrosse Tribune, April 14, 2016. Sugar Dirt & Sand Based in Raleigh, NC, by way of Richmond, VA, Sugar Dirt and Sand is the musical culmination of the life of Mike McCabe. Powerful vocals and honest songwriting are the driving forces of Sugar Dirt and Sand's musical splendor. By combining Motown vibes with his appreciation for the mystical folk stylings of early Van Morrison and Father John Misty, Mike strives to create relatable, heartfelt music that is a representation of the highs and lows of his own journey. Lost love, lasting nostalgia, and a want for a better life dominate these incredible songs. Sugar Dirt and Sand isn't something that Mike McCabe does. Sugar Dirt and Sand is the physical embodiment of Mike's internal dialogue. These songs are a glimpse into the mind of Mike McCabe, and they promise not to disappoint.

Eliane Elias - Birdland
April 01, 2017 - New York

GRAMMY®-winning pianist/singer/songwriter Eliane Elias is known for her distinctive and immediately recognizable musical style which blends her Brazilian roots and sensuous, alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, classical and compositional skills. Two years after seducing fans with her GRAMMY®-winning Made in Brazil (Best Latin Jazz Album), Elias returns with the ebullient Dance of Time, set for release on March 24, 2017 via Concord Jazz. Dance of Time, like its predecessor, was recorded in Brazil. "Recording in Brazil was such a high," explains Elias as to why she returned to the country. But thematically, Dance of Time is its own beautiful beast. Whereas Made in Brazil was a tantalizing toast to three generations of Brazilian composers, Dance of Time's themes are multifold.

Through April 01, 2017 -

The Society of London Theatre and London's Victoria and Albert Museum have partnered with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center to celebrate the extraordinary story of the world's two greatest theatrical districts, London's West End and New York's Broadway in a ground-breaking new exhibition—Curtain Up: Celebrating Forty Years of Theatre in New York and London. Curtain Up celebrates the coincidence of two anniversaries of the biggest awards for commercial theatre: 40 years of the Olivier Awards in London and 70 years of the Tonys® in New York. The exhibition explores the craft and collaboration that creates spectacular international theatre and displays a series of costumes, costume designs, set models, film clips, prompt scripts, photographs, and correspondence from plays and musicals that have won (or been nominated for) both a Tony® and Olivier Award, including Phantom of the Opera, In the Heights, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, A Chorus Line, and more! On display are objects drawn from the collections of the V&A and The Library for the Performing Arts supplemented with key loans from private collections. Highlights include a set of costumes and puppets from Disney's The Lion King, the original costume designs from The Phantom of the Opera by Maria Bjornson shown alongside the costume worn by a recent West End Phantom; a selection of golden top hats from A Chorus Line which won both the Tony Award and the inaugural Olivier Award for Best New Musical; and the original set models for In the Heights, Arcadia, and War Horse. Film clips from notable theatre productions from the V&A's National Video Archive of Performance (NVAP) and NYPL's Theatre on Film and Tape archive (TOFT) are embedded throughout. This exhibition is organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), and the Society of London Theatre, in association with MasterCard. A special thanks to Theatre Development Fund, the American Theatre Wing, The Broadway League, and Disney Theatrical Productions for their support. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts gratefully acknowledges the leadership support of Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman. Additional support for exhibitions has been provided by Judy R. and Alfred A. Rosenberg and the Miriam and Harold Steinberg Foundation.

In a twist that guarantees a laugh riot, the role of Utah is performed by an audience member selected nightly in an impromptu Are U Keanu? contest. To infiltrate the violent and insular world of the LA surf scene, former audience member Special Agent John Utah must learn to surf, sky dive and dominate at beach football. The audience, as the movie's extras, are caught in the crosshairs of the unintentionally hilarious dialogue of the original film, held hostage in guns-a-blazing bank robberies, bloodied from senseless violence, and soaked in a devastating Australian hurricane! No worries...a POINT BREAK LIVE SURVIVAL KIT (poncho, earplugs, Bodhisattva $, etc) is included with each ticket purchase!! The life you save may be your own! Utah's resolve as an agent slowly erodes after he starts to get too close to sun-bleached, hard-bodied, subversive Bodhisattva. He must eventually decide between his career and the seductive allure of this primal thrill-seeking bad boy. NOTE: Buy your delicious meatball sandwich in advance for the big stake out of the Federal Trust Savings and Loan. "Utah! Get me two!"

The Ridgewood Reservoir in Highland Park is a 50+ acre natural oasis that straddles the border of Brooklyn and Queens. Built in 1859 to supply the once independent City of Brooklyn with high quality water, it became obsolete with the addition of new reservoirs in the Catskills in the 1950’s and was decommissioned in the 1980’s. Since then, nature took its course in a perfect case study of ecological succession. A lush and dense forest has grown in its two outside basins while a freshwater pond with waterfowl sits in the middle basin. Meet in the parking lot at Vermont Place.

Through April 01, 2017 - Greenwich Village

Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo (Ghetto Klown) schools his son—and the rest of us—on the buried and forgotten history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny one-man show about uncovering the truth, and recovering from the past. Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos in his son's American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son's school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Ricky Ricardo into 90 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark style.

April 01, 2017 - Chelsea

In these tough times, it's easy to get down. To give up. To lose faith. That's why we need some fun, good times and laughter. To combat the negative and remember the good parts of life. That's what Glass Half Full Comedy is all about. We remind you that even when things seem like they're at their worst, there are still plenty of things to provide laughter and joy. Glass Half Full Comedy is brought to you by: Alex Barnett As the White, Jewish husband of a Black woman (who converted to Judaism) and the father of a 3-year old, Biracial son, Alex focuses on the challenges of being a parent in a bad economy and the issues that confront interracial families. Alex has been featured on Sirius/XM Radio's "Raw Dog Comedy," NBC's EVB Live, ComedyTime TV, RT TV America and NYC-TV and in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and CNN.com. In 2011, he won the 12th Annual Gilda's Club (Northern NJ) Laugh-Off. Dan Enfield Combining outrageously raunchy observations, biting insights into the absurdities of modern living, and the occasional poorly placed pun with an in-your-face stage presence, Daniel Enfield has quickly become one of the most recognizable faces in comedy. Originally from Miami, Dan began his comedy work while at the University of Colorado. In 2007, he was one of several comedians featured at Denver's Oriental Theater for a performance called The Bad Boys of Jewish Comedy. In the days that have followed, Dan has performed at clubs and colleges across the country, including The Miami Improv, Syracuse University, Denver University, The University of Colorado Boulder and Florida International University. Since 2009, Dan has been a resident of New York, a city he has embraced and which has embraced him. Max Neuman Max Neuman is a rising comedian and writer, born and raised in New York City. Max wants to make clear that he is not from Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, or Connecticut, all of which seem like very nice places to have been born and raised, too. So nice, in fact, that Max wonders why people from those places say they are from New York City instead. When Max is not wondering about that, he performs at clubs, bars, and his studio apartment, a masterful space that quadruples as a living room, bedroom, home office, and practice stage.

Through April 01, 2017 - Port Jefferson

Selected from over 350 submissions world-wide, these seven cutting-edge premieres are guaranteed to entertain and engage. The evening opens with two women trapped in a car—or are they? Tony Foster's A New Lease is a wild-ride of a comedy where nothing is what it seems. Difficult questions about racial identity in a dangerous and changing world are raised in Patrick Gabridge's How Does It Feel to Be a Problem? The first act closes with a powerful meditation on the power of guilt when a family is torn apart by a tragic accident in Melanie Acampora's When Driven. The second half of the evening presents the collision of reality and dream-world as Claire struggles with nighttime visitors in Counting Sheep, by Jae Kramisen. Robin Doupé's Upset Over Nothing takes hilarious aim at rampant consumerism as mother and daughter attempt to return the latest holiday fad. The Kitchen Fairy, by Scott Gibson, presents a darkly humorous look at the hidden dangers of the workplace. The evening closes with Lewis Shilane's outrageous take on small-town politics and big-world issues in Lower Education. Patrick Gabridge marks his second festival with How Does It Feel to Be a Problem?, having been represented in the Eighteenth Annual Festival with the heart-breaking Quack. Both Melanie Acampora (When Driven) and Robin Doupé (Upset Over Nothing) are Long Island natives. The company features veteran one-act performers Susan Emory, Jacqueline M. Hughes, Linda May, Phyllis March, Steve McCoy, Joan St. Onge, and, in his record-breaking fifteenth Festival and thirty-five plays, Brian Smith.

Ann Kittredge - Concert Benefit - Metropolitan Room
April 01, 2017 - New York

After wowing the audience at her sold-out premiere in November, actress and singer Ann Kittredge returns to the legendary Metropolitan Room for two more performances this spring with her show Ann Kittredge: It's About Time. The show—a unique storytelling journey, featuring many of Kittredge's musical theatre favorites—is the cabaret debut for both Ann and her Musical Director and Broadway veteran, Wendy Bobbitt Cavett. The duo has put together a remarkable representation of songs from the musical theatre repertoire that spans the years, emphasizing the unique, the unknown, and the story-telling dramatic nature that Ann loves to express. Ann and Wendy are also thrilled to welcome bassist Mary Ann McSweeney to join them at these performances. Leave with a smile or a conversation, or transport to another place; laugh, cry, heckle (well, maybe not?), just join Ann in writing this chapter of her life. She looks forward to sharing it with you. About Ann Kittredge Ann's husband claims that he has been married to at least three different women, but they are all Ann. Who knows how many Ann's will show up at the Metropolitan Room, but one thing is for sure: Ann answers to the beat of her own drum (and, if relevant, the orchestra's drum). Whether the song evokes lunacy, love, longing, curiosity, challenge or deep awakening, Ann's greatest passion is interpreting its nuance, or lighting up an audience's face with recognition of a shared experience. Ann has enjoyed a wonderfully varied career: Broadway, off Broadway, workshops of new shows (oh, sooooo many!), regional theatre, the traditional NYC TV guest spots, independent film, mom, youth theater director and coach, inter-generational choir. All punctuated by amazing collaborations with outrageously talented individuals like Ted Sperling, Wendy Bobbitt Cavett, Larry Carpenter, Kerri Elias, Mel Shapiro, Susan Stroman, BT McNicholl, Jack Going, Michael Ockrent, Steven Flaherty, Lynn Ahrens, Kathleen Marshall, Chuck Morey, John Rando, Martin Platt, Walter Bobbie, Paul Gemignani, Rob Marshall, Alan Menken, Steven Lutvak, the incomparable playwright Horton Foote, and all her fellow cast members and students through the years. They've provided the memories of a lifetime and the impetus and material for her return to the stage -- Ann Kittredge: It's About Time. It's about time because through it all nothing has ever fulfilled Ann more than storytelling, and it's been too long since she stepped away from the stage to raise her children. It's about time for her to explore the art form of cabaret as a solo artist, it's about time some of the music she has selected be shared with an audience, it's about time her children experienced her passion and dedication to something she loves (other than them). Thanks to the support of so many old friends, there's another Ann a-coming (wife #4?), and on her own terms.

Opera NY Presents - Metropolitan Room
April 01, 2017 - New York

Operas's Desperate Housewives and the men that made them that way! Famous mad scenes from opera dramatized in our own off beat style. Opera New York, Inc. is dedicated to producing unique & innovative productions of opera, music theater, & concerts that are accessible to contemporary, widely diversified audiences. Opera New York, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Judith Fredricks at the request of their sponsor, William Reilly, the artistic director of the theater complex at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in Tribeca. ONY was to fill the theater with opera, concerts, & musical theater productions that would be accessible to the communities, schools, & parks of NYC, through their outreach program. The company consisted of 50 of NYC's most talented young artists, directors, & musicians. When funding for the theater complex collapsed, Opera New Yorktemporarily became an opera workshop. There, classes of all kinds, from acting & voice, to dance & movement for singers, were taught. Productions were on a smaller scale, but continued to be done. The Academy for thePerforming Artist grew out of this, as a division of Opera NY, training opera & music theater singers. Intensives & workshops continue, with a faculty of the finest teachers in the Performing Arts, with Master Classes being taught by Performing Arts Professionals from all aspects of the performing arts, broadening their scope of learning. The Academy has also given Intensives in Las Vegas, & Carlsbad, CA. Classes continue to be taught in both places. The Hudson River Park Conservancy of New York, under Arnie Abramowitz, became the next supporting organization, helping to develop concerts for the piers & parks of New York City. The Four Divas concerts were produced as well as many other cross-over concerts, many of which toured Germany, Norway, Austria, Italy, & Sweden for 5 years. Ten years ago Opera New York established The Writers Stage, a venue for developing new operas & music theater works. We are at present, planning to revive one of our most successful productions, "Tales from the Manhattan Woods" which originally ran off-Broadway for 10 weeks. It was directed by ONY Artistic Director Judith Fredricks & received enthusiastic reviews. Its counterpart, also written by Mr. Stroppel, was at the request of Placido Domingo after hearing of our success with this production. "The Tales of the Holly Woods", is on LA Opera's "to do" list, according to Mr.Domingo. The Writers Stage, under Opera New York, is now planning a similar deconstruction of Donizetti's comic opera, "Don Pasquale."

John Minnock - Metropolitan Room
April 01, 2017 - New York

"Every Day Blues" A new-breed vocalist who infuses diversity and modern interpretation into his jazz and blues show, John Minnock first gained popularity in Boston and is now a resident performer at the Metropolitan Room. He is the recipient of the "HotHouse Jazz 2016 Fans Decision Metropolitan Room Award", and recently released his debut album "Every Day Blues" (available at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and CDBaby). An audience favorite rapidly building a large New York following, John combines great originality, musicality and showmanship with clever wit and irreverent comedy, presenting a high-energy and entertaining evening of jazz, blues, funk and R&B. "Like the best Irish coffee, Minnock's voice is smooth and bold, with a good dose of Bushmills to give it a smoldering kick…stellar chops…creative phrasing; impressive scatting" (Kevin Scott Hall, Bistro Awards). A classically trained musician, John's vocalizing recalls the likes of Billy Eckstein, Lou Rawls, George Benson and B.B. King. He often branches out into jazz improvisation and scat singing, and brings a rich history of the music to every performance. His wide repertoire of song renditions spans classic artists like King, Ruth Brown and Bill Withers to contemporaries such as Sara Bareilles, Amy Winehouse and Sam Smith. "One of the best versions of 'On Broadway' I've ever heard." (Bistro Awards). John leads a trio of accomplished musicians and keeps the energy moving throughout the evening. Before bringing his show to NYC, John performed weekly at Boston's Encore Lounge, in one of the most successful jazz gigs in Boston. The show was chosen as a "Featured Event" by The Boston Globe several times during its run. Previously, John performed in the group "Feed the Meter" and in performances at Acton Jazz Café. Born and raised in Albany, he has a degree in music from Boston University. "…an impressive vocalist, obviously well trained and practiced in his chosen fields of study." (Bistro Awards). Don't miss this great evening of entertainment!

Ticket prices: $40/$50/$55/$65 Co-presented with (Le) Poisson Rouge Pre-performance Q&A with the artist - 7pm Moderated by Banning Eyre of Afropop Worldwide Salif Keita, known as the “Golden Voice of Africa,” is undoubtedly one of the most influential and important artists in African music. Born an albino, Keita was cast out by his family and ostracized by his community as his albinism was considered a sign of bad luck in Mandinka culture. He overcame these obstacles to become one of Africa’s most celebrated singers. In 1973, Keita joined the group Les Ambassadeurs - later called Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux - and rose to international fame in the 1970’s. In the early 1980’s Salif began a solo career and has gone on to become a superstar in Afropop music. Keita’s music blends together the traditional griot music of his Malian childhood with other West African influences from Guinea, the Ivory Coast, and Senegal, along with influences from Cuba, Spain, and Portugal. His latest albumTalé immerses us in the digital fountain of youth, with a sound that references Remain in Light by Brian Eno and Talking Heads – artists who pioneered their own future with their quest for the sounds of West Africa. This concert is presented as part of WMI’s Masters of African Music Series

Invisible Man - Japan Society
April 01, 2017 - Midtown

Wells sci-fi novella The Invisible Man (including a 1949 film by the Daiei studio), Toho's Invisible Man was released less than two months after Godzilla with Eiji Tsuburaya handling effects for both films.

Meanwhile, the ending recalls the famous farewell-in-a-fireball climax of Raoul Walsh's White Heat.

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot - Court Room
Through April 01, 2017 - Brooklyn

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a hilarious, poignant, thought-provoking work by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. Boasting a large, zany cast of characters, the play asks one of the most plaguing questions in the Christian ideology: What happened to Judas Iscariot? The facts (we think!) we know are these: Judas was the disciple of Jesus who betrayed his friend and teacher to the authorities. He is seen as the man responsible for Jesuss death; afterwards, Judas fell into despair and hung himself from an olive tree; since then, he has been suffering for his deeds deep in Hell, and will continue to do so for all eternity. Is that really fair? Was Judas the duplicitous master of his own fate, a much-suffering pawn used for Jesuss ends, or just a man who made a mistake? Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, The Last Days puts Judas case to a hilarious, riotous, piercing trial, the results of which are sure to make the inhabitants of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory and the audience reconsider what each thought they knew about forgiveness, faith, and the human inside one of the historys most infamous figures.

Pigeonholed Theatre presents: Detroit by Lisa D'Amour - IATI Theater
Through April 01, 2017 - New York

Pigeonholed presents their inaugural production, the Obie Award-winning Detroit by Lisa D'Amour. Detroit had a sold-out run at Playwrights Horizons in 2012 and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. The New York Times raved: “This scary-funny comedy...speaks to the fractious, frightened American moment more perceptively than any play I've seen on a New York stage." In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don't own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American backyard party turns quickly turns into something more dangerous—and filled with potential.

The Sons & Heirs (A Tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey) - The Bowery Ballroom
April 01, 2017 - NYC

The Sons & Heirs (A Tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey) by Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone The Sons & Heirs. New York's finest band devoted to the music of the Smiths and Morrissey. Handsome devils. Stalwart lovers for sure. They're twice as much fun as an actual Morrissey show — because they bring more heart and enthusiasm to these songs than the man himself. The Sons & Heirs have played this music all over the world, from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles. Their Valentine's Day event Unloveable has become a New York ritual—every year it's the toughest ticket in town. In 2015 they headlined the international Smiths-Morrissey convention in Hollywood. But wherever The Sons & Heirs play, they bring passionate love for the whole musical journey of Morrissey, Marr and their mates — the songs that saved our lives. That's why they always bring out a crowd of fans who love the Smiths as much as they do. (Including an actual member of the Smiths, Andy Rourke, as well as Morrissey's long-time drummer, Spencer Cobrin - both have gotten up on stage to play with them.) Every show is different. Every show permanently changes my mind about this or that song's brilliance. The Sons & Heirs invite the crowd to sing along, dance, invade the stage. There's always a song I'd forgotten about, always a song that makes me think "well, they won't top this one tonight," until they do. They open my eyes, like a tattooed boy from Birkenhead. The Sons & Heirs get the tiniest details right, but more importantly, they bring the spirit that makes this music immortal. They sing their lives, and probably your life, too. Definitely mine.

BASSment Saturdays (Dance) BASSment Saturdays is New York City's biggest weekly dubstep party.

Set to the score of the DYNAMIC ALPINE SEXUAL album, this parody of the “lifestyle genre”, follows an anti-hero skiing legend, Dirk Dassler, who sabotages a high flying career to follow a deluded dream that finds him back where he started, albeit with his soul and dreams crushed. DYNAMIC ALPINE SEXUAL, the album, is more than the overwhelming rush you get while hurling yourself carelessly down a mountainside, or the effect your distinguished accolades have on securing the world's most discriminating sexual participants. It's a way of being that governs your very soul. Produced by the dynamic duo behind the Rinsed nightlife events, Dan Wender and Blacky II, the production features scenic and lighting design by Chris Lunney, costume design by Vestment, and stage fabrication by Vitek Glinski and Bob Gallucci. The website is designed by Ana Giraldo Wingler. DYNAMIC ALPINE SEXUAL plays the following schedule: Friday, March 31 at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm Saturday, April 1 at 5pm, 7pm, 9pm, 11pm Tickets are $15 which include a free beverage and a digital download of the DAS album. Tickets are avalable online at http://rinsed.it/events/dynamic-alpine-sexual/ and the album is available at https://theumbrella.bandcamp.com/album/dynamic-alpine-sexual.

Music in Motion - Bargemusic

"Music in Motion—That motion is the gentle rocking of a boat for this series of family neighborhood concerts presented by Bargemusic, the floating barge at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. As always, the material — announced just before the performance — is chamber music, but these programs differ in important ways from the regular Bargemusic fare: With unreserved seating, they last only an hour, include a post-show question-and-answer session with the musicians and are all free." —New York Times, August 21, 2015

BAM presents Doug Varone and Dancers - BAM Harvey Theater
Through April 01, 2017 - Brooklyn

BAM presents Doug Varone and Dancers, celebrating 30th anniversary season with two NY premieres and one major revival, March 29-April 1 Bloomberg Philanthropies is the Season Sponsor Doug Varone and Dancers Choreography by Doug Varone Music composed by Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe, and Philip Glass Lighting design by David Ferri, Robert Wierzel, and David Grill Costume design by Liz Prince, Reid Bartelme, Harriet Jung, and Lynne Steincamp BAM Harvey Theater (651 Fulton St) March 29-April 1 at 7:30pm Tickets start at $25 Brooklyn, NY-- Doug Varone and Dancers return to BAM to celebrate 30 years of visionary work with three dances representing the past, present, and future of the company. The program comprises a revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994) and the New York premieres of ReComposed (2015) and Varone's latest work, Folded (2016). Possession, inspired by A.S. Byatt's century-spanning novel of the same name, is set to Glass' beautiful Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. Eight dancers, in duets, explore the facets of relationships, as the emotional and physical balance of the work shifts between each pair. ReComposed is a whirlwind of color and careening movement, inspired by the pastel paintings of abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell and set to Michael Gordon's propulsive Dystopia. Folded, an intimate duet set to a score by MacArthur Fellow Julia Wolfe, explores the questions and contradictions inherent in our personal beliefs and faiths. Award-winning choreographer and director Doug Varone works in dance, theater, opera, film, and fashion. His work is known for its emotional range, kinetic breadth and the diversity of genres in which he works. Commissions include the Limón Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Rambert Dance Company (London), Martha Graham Dance Company, Dancemakers (Canada), Batsheva Dance Company (Israel), Bern Ballet (Switzerland) and An Creative (Japan), among others. In addition, his dances have been staged on more than 75 college and university programs around the country. He has staged multiple premieres and new productions for the Metropolitan Opera, Minnesota Opera, Opera Colorado, Washington Opera, New York City Opera, and Boston Lyric Opera, among others. His productions at the Metropolitan Opera include Salome, the world premiere of Tobias Picker's An American Tragedy, Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps, and Hector Berloiz's Les Troyens. His theater credits include choreography for Broadway and off-Broadway, including the MASTERVOICES production of Dido and Aeneas at NY's City Center and Manhattan Theatre Club's Murder Ballad. Varone received his BFA from Purchase College where he was awarded the President's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007. Numerous honors and awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, an OBIE Award (Lincoln Center's Orpheus and Euridice), the Jerome Robbins Fellowship at the Boglaisco Institute in Italy, two individual Bessie Awards, three American Dance Festival Doris Duke Awards for New Work, and four National Dance Project Awards.

Salif Keita - The Town Hall
April 01, 2017 - New York City

Ticket prices: $40/$50/$55/$65 Co-presented with (Le) Poisson Rouge Pre-performance Q&A with the artist - 7pm Moderated by Banning Eyre of Afropop Worldwide Salif Keita, known as the “Golden Voice of Africa,” is undoubtedly one of the most influential and important artists in African music. Born an albino, Keita was cast out by his family and ostracized by his community as his albinism was considered a sign of bad luck in Mandinka culture. He overcame these obstacles to become one of Africa’s most celebrated singers. In 1973, Keita joined the group Les Ambassadeurs - later called Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux - and rose to international fame in the 1970’s. In the early 1980’s Salif began a solo career and has gone on to become a superstar in Afropop music. Keita’s music blends together the traditional griot music of his Malian childhood with other West African influences from Guinea, the Ivory Coast, and Senegal, along with influences from Cuba, Spain, and Portugal. His latest albumTalé immerses us in the digital fountain of youth, with a sound that references Remain in Light by Brian Eno and Talking Heads – artists who pioneered their own future with their quest for the sounds of West Africa. This concert is presented as part of WMI’s Masters of African Music Series.

Joffrey Ballet - David H Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
April 01, 2017 - Upper West SIde

The Joyce Theater Foundation is thrilled to bring The Joffrey Ballet to New York to perform Krzysztof Pastor's magnificent re-mounting of his 2008 production of Romeo & Juliet, which had its U.S. premiere in Chicago with the Joffrey in spring 2014. Set in 20th century Italian society, this updated version of the classic story is especially relevant for contemporary audiences as it goes beyond an exploration of family strife to position Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of complicated politics and war. Propelled by Sergei Prokofiev's lushly dramatic 1935 score - accompanied by the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra: Members of the Chicago Philharmonic - Pastor's classical yet contemporary ballet version of Romeo & Juliet, while without words, "might just be the most eloquent, rapturous, emotionally searing 'translation' of the story you will ever see." – The Chicago Sun-Times The Joyce gala evening will take place on Thursday, March 30. It will offer the chance to see this revered company perform Body of Your Dreams by Myles Thatcher, Fool's Paradise by Christopher Wheeldon, and Bells by Yuri Possokhov.

Masculin féminin - Walter Reade Theater
April 01, 2017 - Manhattan

Godard's freewheeling portrait of "the children of Marx and Coca-Cola"—a generation caught between capitalist pleasures and socialist ideals—stars Léaud as a young, self-styled radical-intellectual as he becomes involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with an aspiring yé-yé girl (Chantal Goya). The director depicts Paris as both a modern playland of arcades, discotheques, and pop music, and a simmering hotbed of political unrest and random acts of violence. Sporting short hair, wearing his traditional suit, and chain-smoking cigarettes, Jean-Pierre Léaud channels the turbulent atmosphere of the time as he delivers an impassioned monologue in a record-your-own-voice booth, whistles Bach in a café, and discusses the myriad synonyms for "buttocks" in bed.

The Death of Louis XIV - Film Society of Lincoln Center
Through April 01, 2017 - Midtown West

The great Jean-Pierre Léaud, synonymous with French cinema for over half a century, delivers a majestic, career-capping performance as the longest-reigning French monarch during his final days. Albert Serra's elegant, engrossing contemplation on death and its representation finds the extravagantly wigged Sun King slowly wasting away from gangrene in his bedchamber, surrounded by devoted servants, pets and a retinue of hopeless doctors. Filled with ravishing candlelit images and painstaking details gleaned from Saint-Simon's memoirs and other historical texts, Louis XIV is as darkly funny as it is moving, revealing the absurdity of the rule-bound royal court, but even more so of death itself. A Cinema Guild release.

Oslo - Lincoln Center, Vivian Beaumont Theater
April 01, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

Riverside Symphony presents Home Sweet Home - Alice Tully Hall
April 01, 2017 -

Following the heated nationalist fervor of the latter 19th-century Romantics, composers in the dawning modern age largely settled into a more sublimated expression of their national musical heritage, which they themselves continued to develop and recast. Entries from England (Holst), France (Ravel) and Russia (Prokofiev)—all composed within a five-year period—bear witness to this phenomenon, while contemporary West Coast composer Donald Crockett's winsome, blue-tinged, decidedly American guitar concerto reaffirms it.

Le Départ - Walter Reade Theater
April 01, 2017 - Manhattan

Jerzy Skolimowski's first film outside Poland stars Jean-Pierre Léaud and Catherine Duport, both fresh from Masculin féminin (along with cameraman Willy Kurant). In Brussels, a hairdresser (Léaud) becomes obsessed with the idea of driving his boss's Porsche in an upcoming rally. His comically frenzied attempts to turn this dream into reality make Le Départ a breathless romp, but they also mark a rite of passage into adulthood for the car-crazy hero. With its acid takes on materialism and solipsistic excess, Léaud's energized physicality, and Krzysztof Komeda's radical free jazz soundtrack, Le Départ teems with burlesque and poetic expression. Print courtesy of the Royal Cinematheque of Belgium.

La Chinoise - Walter Reade Theater
April 01, 2017 - Manhattan

Naturally, the color red dominates Godard's stunning political comedy about how five formidably innocent young people—"Robinson Crusoes with Marxism as their Man Friday"—spend their summer vacation. Espousing Brecht and donning a miscellany of costumes and accessories, Jean-Pierre Léaud plays Guillaume, an agitprop performer in a small group of students who passionately debate the impact of Mao's cultural revolution and what chance terrorism might have in triggering comparable radicalization in the West. This cinematic cell of charismatic Reds is just part of La Chinoise's dazzling lightshow of slogans, posters, and revolutionary images. Godard's subtitle—"a film in the making"—was eerily prophetic, given the "children's crusade" that hit the streets of Paris just a year later.

Day for Night - Walter Reade Theater
April 01, 2017 - Manhattan

Truffaut's joyous love letter to the art and craft of moviemaking stars the filmmaker himself as Ferrand, the director of a tawdry melodrama trying his best to keep the seemingly cursed production on track while off-screen dramas and romantic complications swirl around him. Jacqueline Bisset is the troubled Hollywood starlet recovering from a nervous breakdown, while Jean-Pierre Léaud is Alphonse, the impetuous leading man who just wants to know: are women magic? Ferrand's relationship with Alphonse is especially poignant for the father-son relationship Truffaut and Léaud held in real life, made all the more touching when Ferrand confides, "People like you, like me, you know well, we are made to be happy in the work of cinema."

Porcelain, No Simple Matter: Arlene Shechet and the Arnhold Collection - Frick Collection
Through April 02, 2017 - New York

The Frick presents a year-long exhibition exploring the complex history of making, collecting, and displaying porcelain. Included are about one hundred pieces produced by the renowned Royal Meissen manufactory, which led the ceramic industry in Europe, both scientifically and artistically, during the early to mid-eighteenth century. Most of the works date from 1720 to 1745 and were selected by New York-based sculptor Arlene Shechet from the promised gift of Henry H. Arnhold. Sixteen works in the exhibition are Shechet’s own sculptures — exuberant porcelain she made during a series of residencies at the Meissen manufactory in 2012 and 2013. Designed by Shechet, the exhibition avoids the typical chronological or thematic order of most installations in favor of a personal and imaginative approach that creates an intriguing dialogue between the historical and the contemporary. With nature as the dominant theme, the exhibition is presented in the Frick’s Portico Gallery, which overlooks the museum’s historic Fifth Avenue Garden. Porcelain, No Simple Matter: Arlene Shechet and the Arnhold Collection is organized by Charlotte Vignon, Curator of Decorative Arts, The Frick Collection.

Brighton Beach Memoirs - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Through April 02, 2017 - Garden City

Here is part one of Neil Simon’s autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and Grandpa the Socialist and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states “if you didn’t have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.”

Brighton Beach Memoirs at Adelphi University from March 28 – April 2 - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Through April 02, 2017 - Garden City

Adelphi University’s talented theatre students will perform Brighton Beach Memoirs, a semi-autobiographical comedy by Neil Simon, under the direction of JJ O’Neil. Brighton Beach Memoirs runs from March 28 – April 2 in the Olmsted Theatre at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC), 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. This production of Brighton Beach Memoirs is generously sponsored by Jack Levande. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, narrates his life as a young teen in 1937, where he lives with his family in a rented house in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. With his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters thrown into the mix, you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states “if you didn’t have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.” The 2:00 p.m. performance of Brighton Beach Memoirs on Saturday, April 1, will be open captioned for deaf and hard of hearing patrons. Open captioning is made possible through Adelphi’s Center for Health Innovation. AUPAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds.

Small Wonders: The VR Experience - The Cloisters
Through April 02, 2017 - Washington Heights

The Canadian Film Centre's Media Lab (CFC Media Lab), Seneca's School of Creative Arts and Animation, and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) are returning to The Met Cloisters (99 Margaret Corbin Drive, Fort Tryon Park, New York, NY 10040) with their "impressively transporting" (Hyperallergic) virtual reality (VR) collaboration, Small Wonders: The VR Experience. The encore engagement is FREE with admission, with reservations suggested due to popular demand, Friday, March 31–Sunday, April 2 and Friday, May 12–Sunday, May 14, 10:30 am–5:00 pm in the Fuentidueña Chapel at The Met Cloisters, the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of the Middle Ages. "It really is worth it to gain an intricate understanding on a forensic level of how meticulous the detail is in these handheld objects." -- Allison Meire, Hyperallergic After exploring the exhibition Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures, running through May 21, which brings together for the first time some 50 rare boxwood carvings from museums and private collections across Europe and North America, visitors can don a VR headset and walk through the Last Judgement: Coronation of the Virgin (1500-1530) - a Gothic miniature bead that fits inside the palm of one's hand. VR users will get up close and personal with the intricately carved saints and sinners. The exhibition offers new insight into the methods of production and cultural significance of these awe-inspiring works of art. Small enough to fit in the palm of the hand, these tiny masterpieces depict complex scenes with elegance and precision. Without fail, they inspire viewers to ask how an artist could have possibly made them, a question that can only be answered today and a challenge perfect for VR technology. The integrated use of VR enhances the museum experience, and marks a significant first for The Met Cloisters. "I had been interested in creating a parallel experience for the public," says Lisa Ellis, the conservator of the Art Gallery of Ontario, who created the exhibit. I think there is complete synchronicity between these tiny objects and the virtual world inside the HTC headset." The result is an experience of exploring art like no other. "This was a lightning in a bottle experience," says Ana Serrano, Chief Digital Officer, CFC, and Producer, Small Wonders: The VR Experience. "A perfect marriage of content and form that made an object of wonder accessible." The AGO, CFC Media Lab and Seneca's School of Creative Arts and Animation partnered to create Small Wonders: The VR Experience. Using one of the AGO's micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) scans of the miniatures, the creative and technical team led by interactive artist and designer, Priam Givord, developed an experience specifically for the HTC Vive platform. Viewers can explore the intricate carvings of the prayer bead from various angles and in detail otherwise inaccessible to the human eye. The soundtrack, Treasures of Devotion: Spiritual Songs in Northern Europe 1500-1540, echoes the ambience of the wider show. The result: VR enriches the contemplative and immersive experience.

This display features historic survey maps and land elevation profiles with canal vignettes that document the design, construction, and daily use of the Empire State's engineering marvel and "Eighth Wonder of the World"—the Grand Canal.

NYLON FUSION THEATRE COMPANY and CLOVERLEAF COLLECTIVE are pleased to present the return of Lowell Byers’ LUFT GANGSTER, directed by Tony Award winning director Austin Pendleton (Broadway’s The Little Foxes, The Runner Stumbles, Shelter, Spoils of War). LUFT GANGSTER will play a limited engagement at the Sheen Center (18 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012) as part of their “War Is Hell” Theatre Series (recently featured in New York Magazine’s ‘Things To Do in NY’). Performances begin Friday, March 31 and continue through Sunday, April 16. Opening Night is Saturday, April 1 (8 p.m.). After bailing out of his crippled B-24 bomber under heavy fire from German forces, waist gunner Lou Fowler is captured by the Nazis. Incarcerated along with other Allied fliers in an inhumane Nazi prison camp, where POW’s view new prisoners with suspicion as possible Nazi infiltrators, Lou has to heal his own battle injuries, as his captors treat him as just another ‘Luft Gangster’ - a term Joseph Goebbels created as propaganda to convince the German nation that all American flyers were actual criminals released from prison by the US government in order to fight in World War II. As Lou endures the hellish and unsanitary conditions of prison camp life, subsisting on what could barely be described as food and enduring unspeakable cruelty, surviving to escape becomes his only goal. In a time and place where men on both sides of the war were stripped of all things civilized, the human cost of war is brought front and center. LUFT GANGSTER plays the following regular schedule through Sunday, April 16**: Wednesdays at 7 p.m. Thursdays at 8 p.m. Fridays at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sundays at 3 p.m. **Schedule Exception: Sunday, April 16th (Easter Sunday) performance is at 5 p.m. Tickets are $29-32 and are now available online at www.SheenCenter.org or by calling 866-811-4111.

Spatial Fluidity and Contemporary Perspectives - Agora Gallery
Through April 21, 2017 - NYC

This April Agora Gallery embraces the unexpected with a trio of forward-thinking exhibitions. Spatial Fluidity features nine artists who blur the line between two-dimensional and three-dimensional art, be it through introducing new media or using traditional materials in unique ways. There are pieces that experiment with mixed textures, some that use distinctive and asymmetric surfaces, and some that even incorporate light. Contemporary Perspectives is a group exhibition that marries classic subject matter with new styles, such as romantic botanicals portrayed in energized, saturated colors or traditional portraiture that sheds light on historically overlooked people. This exhibition looks at modernity from all sides in drawing, painting, and mixed media. Both of these exhibitions open April 1, 2017 and run through April 21, 2017 with a joint opening reception on Thursday, April 6 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.

Mythical Beasts: The Divinity of Dragons - Throckmorton Fine Art
Through April 22, 2017 - New York

Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to announce our Asia week exhibition, Mythical Beasts: The Divinity of Dragons, the finest collection of jade dragons representing the art of early China. Emerging out of the northern boundaries of today’s China, the dragon eventually predominated as the mark par excellence of heavenly favor. Wearing or suspending a jade pendant in the shape of a dragon was believed to inoculate the owner with some of the dragon’s positive energy. In one of three essays commissioned for the catalog accompanying the exhibition, DRAGON LORE IN EARLY CHINA, art scholar and author John S. Major, says, “Neolithic and Bronze Age vessels of pottery, jade, bronze, and other durable media, as well as articles of personal adornment, frequently display images of fanciful reptilian creatures that scholars groups under the capacious rubric “dragons.” While characteristically endowed with serpentine bodies (with or without legs), some examples have humanoid heads (often with horns), others have zoomorphic heads with gaping mouths and, sometimes, crests. For the early period, before the emergence of written documents, attempts to classify dragon images and understand their meaning necessarily involve an element of speculation. One can say with fair certainty, however, that these figures are not renderings of actual living creatures (such as crocodiles or pythons). Rather, they were from the beginning symbolic devices, probably best understood as visualizations of natural powers.” Additional essays include Elizabeth Childs-Johnson’s JADE DRAGONS AND DRAGON ORIGINS and Fang Gu’s THE EVOLUTION OF DRAGON DECORATIVE PATTERNS from the Eastern Zhou to the Han Period. This auspicious mythical animal with serpentine body, known under the header ‘dragon (long and qiu)’ first appears during the Jade Age and continues to dominate Chinese art of all later and modern periods. Loved and admired for its mythical properties of auspiciousness and fertility, this enduring symbol of Chinese culture is best represented in the art of jade from the Late Neolithic (the Jade Age) through Han eras, from ca. 3500 BCE through the 3rd century CE.” The positive energy of Chinese dragons is represented in a miraculous variety of sinuous forms from the Hongshan cultural period through Shang, Western and Eastern Zhou, and later Han eras. The Hongshan dragon is envisioned initially in the shape of a thick curling C-shape with large head and bulbous ears. By the Shang and Western Zhou eras, the dragon coils and snakes, represented usually in profile and often with an animal mask or feline head and a body filled with scales. Heads may turn or revert and lissome bodies may rest on paws, and tails extend in an agile and supple piece of calligraphic design. The dragon art of Eastern Zhou and Han periods climax in an extravagant display of multitudinous variations of intertwining bodies texturally distinguished by feathers, cloud scrolls, scales or granulation. The rich and lavishly represented collection of the exhibition promises to be enjoyable and intellectually enriching.

American Lyric Theater (ALT) was founded in 2005 by Lawrence Edelson to build a new body of operatic repertoire by nurturing composers and librettists, providing an incubator for their collaborations, and contributing new works to the national canon. Many opera companies commission and perform new works; but ALT is the only company in the United States that offers extensive, full-time mentorship for emerging operatic writers. While the traditional company model focuses on producing a season, ALT’s focus is on serving the needs of composers and librettists, developing new works, and collaborating with larger producing companies to help usher those works into the repertoire. In 2012, ALT was the first company dedicated to artist mentorship rather than operatic production to be recognized by OPERA America as a Professional Company Member – a testament to ALT’s service to the field. For more information about American Lyric Theater, please visit www.altnyc.org. American Lyric Theater’s mentorship programs for composers and librettists are supported by lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts; and additional funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, The Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, The Amphion Foundation, The ASCAP Foundation Irving Caesar Fund, Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trusts, Friars Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, Howard & Sarah D.

LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS - The Public Theater
Through April 23, 2017 - Manhattan

Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo (Ghetto Klown) schools his son—and the rest of us—on the buried and forgotten history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny one-man show about uncovering the truth, and recovering from the past. Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos in his son's American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son's school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Ricky Ricardo into 90 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark style. Artistic Director of Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Tony Taccone, directs this incendiary new show from one of the most provocatively hilarious satirists in American theater.

ARTech: Adventures in Art + Technology - 451-459 West 14th Street, New York, NY 10014
Through April 29, 2017 - New York

The Meatpacking Business Improvement District (BID) is proud to announce ARTech: Adventures in Art + Technology, an exciting partnership with the Children’s Museum of the Arts and the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI.) A two-month long series of workshops, installations, and interactive activities, ARTech will provide children the opportunity to learn about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) in an entertaining and engaging environment. The program is designed to inspire young minds to utilize these disciplines in their daily lives and to consider the impact of STEAM on the world in which they live. Art combined with technology enhances problem-solving skills, encourages innovative solutions to old problems, inspires experimentation, and promotes collaboration – ARTech seeks to facilitate this type of experiential education for children and their families. The Meatpacking BID will use an 8000 sq. ft., beautifully renovated, vacant retail storefront as the location for this dynamic pop-up activity center. As art and technology are among the crucial sectors defining the district’s commerce today, the Meatpacking BID developed ARTech to cultivate the next generation of artists, inventors, scientists and visionaries. ARTech leverages the generosity, ingenuity and creativity of our community and creates an indoor haven of exploration for children and families at no cost to the attendees. As Executive Director of the Meatpacking BID, Lauren Danziger spearheads the strategy behind the initiative and states “The Meatpacking District is a dynamic hub of activity across many sectors. While the districts food and shopping scenes are commonly recognized, the area’s depth of arts and tech businesses is not as well-known. ARTech, provides a platform to highlight the district as a neighborhood with a strong arts and technology footprint. Additionally, we are providing a gratis experience and a place for children to experience STEAM, an industry that is meaningful to the future of not just the district, but the world.” Executive Director of the Children's Museum of the Arts, Barbara Hunt McLanahan adds “The Children's Museum of the Arts is excited for the opportunity ARTech presents to bring the transformative power of the arts to even more children across the city. Art is an essential part of education— it fosters the ingenuity and creativity that is so important to science and technology fields. We look forward to providing children the chance to experience the A in STEAM education through ARTech.” “This is such a great opportunity to engage young people and show them that science, art, and technology come together in interesting, unexpected ways,” says Elizabeth Slagus, NYSCI’s Director of Public Programs. “We delight in taking our work out beyond the walls of our museum, and the exhibits and activities offered through ARTech are perfect for starting a dialogue with people about what STEAM is and how it has the potential to inform very complicated and critical issues.” ARTech will be open to the public every Wednesday and Thursday from 3pm – 7pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 5pm beginning March 1 and ending April 29 at 451-459 West 14th Street. Please see the below schedule and summary of activities planned: Summary Activities: 1) Build It - Using award winning design kit, Rigamajig, children will add wooden planks, pulleys, cogs, nuts, bolts, and rope to their imagination to create wonders of creative engineering. Is it a car? Is it a train? No, it’s a thingamajig! 2) Velocity Area – What is the difference between speed and velocity? After designing and making their own custom wheeled projectiles, participants will shoot their rocket racers down the velocity ramps to consider what makes a vehicle go faster in one direction. Is the long smooth ramp faster or do the bumps in the shorter ramp help to increase speed? 3) GIF making station – Everyone knows their favorite animated film, but may not know the simple technology behind it. Learning how to simply animate themselves, families will leave with short GIFS to use in their family albums and social media posts. In partnership with GIPHY. 4) Starlab – Families can experience the stars in the night sky and learn to star hop from key stars to their favorite constellations in the portable planetarium Starlab. iStop Motion and art making workshops will translate ideas about space into 2 and 3 dimensions! 5) Danny Rozin Installation – Have you ever seen an artwork that responds to your movement?

BALLET HISPÁNICO announces 2016/2017 International Tour - Ballet Hispanico
Through April 30, 2017 - New York

BALLET HISPÁNICO announces 2016/2017 International Tour New York, NY – Ballet Hispánico, the nation’s leader in bringing communities together to celebrate Latino cultures through dance, announces its 2016/2017 International Tour to Cuba, Israel and Serbia, where the company will bring its signature brand of Latin-inspired contemporary dance. From November 3-5, 2016, the company will be in Havana, Cuba to perform in the country’s International Ballet Festival of Havana, presenting an excerpt from Línea Recta, a new piece choreographed by Belgo-Colombian Annabelle Lopez Ochoa. The piece, which will have its world premiere at the Apollo Theater on November 18 and 19, 2016, pairs the hallmark passion of flamenco dance with innovative and intricate partnering. This is Ballet Hispánico’s second visit to Cuba, after debuting in the International Ballet Festival of Havana in 2014. From November 23-26, 2016, the company will perform in Israel as part of the Herzliya Performing Arts Center's 2016-17 Dance Series. The Herzliya Performing Arts Center's dance series is one of the most successful series in the country, with a record of 1,650 memberships in the previous season. The tour continues at the Beersheva Performing Arts Center on Monday, November 28, 2016 at 8:30pm; Jerusalem Theater on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 8:30pm; and Modi’in Auditorium on Wednesday, November 30 at 8:30pm. In addition to the performances, the company will host workshops for young dancers and various audiences in ten cities around Israel, sponsored by the American Embassy. In April 2017, Ballet Hispánico will offer three performances in Belgrade and Novi Sad, Serbia, presenting Línea Recta, Bury Me Standing, and Club Havana. REPERTORY: Bury Me Standing (1998) Choreography by Ramón Oller The unique culture of the Gypsy or "Roma" people, a marginalized community that has journeyed across continents for a thousand years, inspired Spanish choreographer Ramón Oller to create Bury Me Standing. The compelling rhythms and melodies which accompany the ballet—drawn from Spain and Eastern Europe, traditional folk songs, and contemporary world music—reflect the emotional essence of the Roma: their strong communal bonds, sensuality, feelings of oppression and longing, and their strength and exuberance. Club Havana (2000) Choreography by Pedro Ruiz A portrait of the glamorous Havana of the 1950s during the heyday of Cuban music, dance and nightlife. The intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, a native of Cuba, in this re-imagined nightclub filled with the exhilarating sounds, colors and ambience of that golden era. El Beso (2014) Choreography by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano Award-winning Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano (a Dance Magazine "25 to Watch" pick) premieres his first commission for Ballet Hispanico, a tongue-in-cheek look at the iconic nature of a kiss with original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez.   Línea Recta (2016) Choreography by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa From one of today’s most sought-after choreographers comes a powerful and resonant work that explores an intriguing aspect of flamenco dance: the conspicuous absence of physical partnering. While maintaining the integrity and hallmark passion of the genre, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa imagines an original and explosive movement language premised upon the theme of partnership and performed to live flamenco guitar by Eric Vaarzon Morel. Línea Recta came to fruition through Ballet Hispánico’s Instituto Coreográfico, an innovative choreography lab program for Latino dance makers, and was commissioned in part by the Apollo Theater and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Sombrerísimo (2013) Choreography by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa An absorbing exploration of identity, Sombrerísimo references the surrealist world of the Belgian painter René Magritte, famous for his paintings of men in bowler hats. This athletic work for six male dancers was commissioned by New York City Center for the 10th anniversary of the Fall for Dance Festival.  Sortijas (2013) Choreography by Cayetano Soto Sortijas (Rings) is a duet that celebrates Latino tradition by representing the circular ties of family and friends that link communities together over generations. EDUARDO VILARO joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a principal dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as Founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico’s legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America’s changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education. Mr. Vilaro’s own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual and historical essence of the Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama’s II International Festival of Ballet. In 2016, he was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame. ABOUT BALLET HISPÁNICO Celebrating over 45 years of sharing and reflecting the ever-changing diversity of Latino cultures, Ballet Hispánico is the new expression of American contemporary dance. Led by Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro, the Company has produced world-class, multifaceted performances that have featured master works by Nacho Duato, cutting-edge premieres by Cayetano Soto and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and live music collaborations with renowned artists such as Paquito D’Rivera and Ruben Blades—to name a notable few. Ballet Hispánico has performed for audiences totaling over 3 million, throughout 11 countries, and on 3 continents. Through the work of its professional company, school of dance, and community arts education programs, Ballet Hispánico celebrates the dynamic aesthetics of the Hispanic diaspora, building new avenues of cultural dialogue and sharing the joy of dance with all communities.

Bottles of Laughs (The Vintage Lounge) - Gotham Comedy Club
Through May 05, 2017 - New York

In these tough times, it’s not always easy to find high quality and fun ways to let off some steam and ease stress. It’s harder still to find such diversions that are affordable. That’s what Bottles of Laughs is all about. We bring you top-shelf comics who deliver a fine pairing of comedy and laughs at a price you can afford even if you don’t have a champagne-level salary. Bottles of Laughs is brought to you by: Alex Barnett As the White, Jewish husband of a Black woman (who converted to Judaism) and the father of a 3-year old, Biracial son, Alex focuses on the challenges of being a parent in a bad economy and the issues that confront interracial families. Alex has been featured on the Katie Couric Show, Sirius/XM Radio’s “Raw Dog Comedy,” NBC’s EVB Live, ComedyTime TV, RT TV America and NYC-TV and in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and CNN.com. In 2011, he won the 12th Annual Gilda’s Club (Northern NJ) Laugh-Off. Francis Ellis When you first meet Francis, he seems like someone you might love to hate. A tall, Harvard-educated lacrosse player, Francis seems on the outside like the poster boy for arrogance, obnoxiousness, and condescending White privilege. But then he starts talking, and you realize he’s still very much the modest guy from rural Maine with an endearing humility and a healthy dose of self-deprecation. Onstage, Francis speaks to the "challenges" that face a twenty-something in New York -- financial anxiety, relationship angst, and a love-hate relationship with fitness complicated by a love of late-night snacks. When he's not onstage performing standup, Francis (who's also studied improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade) is wandering around New York trying to come up with an answer to his parents' question of why he had to go to Harvard to become a comedian.

That’s what Glass Half Full Comedy is all about. We remind you that even when things seem like they’re at their worst, there are still plenty of things to provide laughter and joy. Glass Half Full Comedy is brought to you by: Alex Barnett As the White, Jewish husband of a Black woman (who converted to Judaism) and the father of a 3-year old, Biracial son, Alex focuses on the challenges of being a parent in a bad economy and the issues that confront interracial families. Alex has been featured on Sirius/XM Radio’s “Raw Dog Comedy,” NBC’s EVB Live, ComedyTime TV, RT TV America and NYC-TV and in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and CNN.com. In 2011, he won the 12th Annual Gilda’s Club (Northern NJ) Laugh-Off. Dan Enfield Combining outrageously raunchy observations, biting insights into the absurdities of modern living, and the occasional poorly placed pun with an in-your-face stage presence, Daniel Enfield has quickly become one of the most recognizable faces in comedy. Originally from Miami, Dan began his comedy work while at the University of Colorado. In 2007, he was one of several comedians featured at Denver’s Oriental Theater for a performance called The Bad Boys of Jewish Comedy. In the days that have followed, Dan has performed at clubs and colleges across the country, including The Miami Improv, Syracuse University, Denver University, The University of Colorado Boulder and Florida International University. Since 2009, Dan has been a resident of New York, a city he has embraced and which has embraced him. Max Neuman Max Neuman is a rising comedian and writer, born and raised in New York City. Max wants to make clear that he is not from Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, or Connecticut, all of which seem like very nice places to have been born and raised, too. So nice, in fact, that Max wonders why people from those places say they are from New York City instead. When Max is not wondering about that, he performs at clubs, bars, and his studio apartment, a masterful space that quadruples as a living room, bedroom, home office, and practice stage.

PERPETUAL REVOLUTIONThe Image and Social Change - International Center of Photography
Through May 07, 2017 - New York

Organized by ICP Curators Carol Squiers and Cynthia Young, Assistant Curators Susan Carlson and Claartje van Dijk, along with adjunct curators Joanna Lehan and Kalia Brooks with assistance from Akshay Bhoan and Quito Ziegler, Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change continues ICP's long-standing tradition of exploring the social and historic impact of visual culture. Today, viewers are barraged by seemingly endless streams of new kinds of media images on an unprecedented scale. Perpetual Revolution explores the relation between the overwhelming image world that confronts us, and the volatile, provocative, and often-violent social world it mirrors. This exhibition proposes that an ongoing revolution is taking place politically, socially, and technologically, and that new digital methods of image production, display, and distribution are simultaneously both reporting and producing social change. The epic social and political transformations of the last few years would not have happened with the speed and in such depth if it weren't for the ever-expanding possibilities offered by this revolution. Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change presents six of these critical issues transformed by visual culture: #BlackLivesMatter, gender fluidity, climate change, terrorist propaganda, the right-wing fringe and the 2016 election, and the refugee crisis.

City of Memory: William Chappel's Views of Early 19th-Century New York - The Met
Through May 14, 2017 - New York

William P. Chappel (1801–1878), a tinsmith and amateur painter, depicted scenes of early 19th-century New York City. This exhibition will feature 27 small oil paintings from The Met collection that were probably executed late in the artist's life. Chappel's meticulously detailed images of street peddlers, artisan workshops, and swimmers cooling off in the East River—the kinds of commonplace scenes that were seldom documented—provide a rare glimpse of urban life 200 years ago.

Selections from the Collection of Jefferson R. Burdick - The Met
Through May 14, 2017 - New York

The Burdick collection of baseball cards constitutes an integral part of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection of ephemera and tells the history of popular printmaking in the United States. In 1947, after having approached A. Hyatt Mayor, the Museum's curator of prints and photographs, the Syracuse electrician Jefferson R. Burdick (1900–1963) began to donate his entire collection of over 30,000 baseball cards in large batches, along with another 303,000 trade cards, postcards, and posters to the Museum. The baseball cards collected by Burdick date from 1887 to 1962 and represent the most comprehensive collection outside of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. The cards on view illustrate the history of baseball from the dead-ball era at the turn of the 19th century through the golden age and modern era of the sport. The baseball cards document the sport through various types of media—from lithography to photography—and imagery illustrating legends as well as the lesser-known players, owners, and teams that have contributed to the history of the game.

GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM - The Public Theater
Through May 14, 2017 - Manhattan

Tony winner Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song Trilogy, Hairspray) takes the stage in a ravishing world premiere by one of the most influential playwrights of our time, Tony nominee Martin Sherman (Bent, The Boy From Oz). Fierstein plays Beau, a pianist expat living in London, who meets Rufus, an eccentric young lawyer, at the dawn of the internet dating revolution. After a life spent recovering from the disappointment and hurt of loving men in a world that refused to allow it, Beau is determined to keep his expectations low with Rufus. But Rufus comes from a new generation of gay men who believe happiness is as much their right as anyone else's, and what Beau assumed would be just another fling grows into one of the most surprising and defining relationships of his life. A remarkably moving, brilliantly funny love story, GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM reflects the triumphs and heartbreaks of the entire length of the gay rights movement, celebrating and mourning the ghosts of the men and women who led the way for equality, marriage and the right to dream. Tony nominee Sean Mathias (Waiting for Godot/No Man's Land, Indiscretions) directs.

Turner's Modern and Ancient Ports: Passages through Time - Frick Collection
Through May 14, 2017 - New York

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775–1851), nineteenth-century Britain's greatest land- and seascape artist, depicted ports throughout his career, both in monumental oil paintings and in watercolors. An insatiable traveler and an artist with a deep fascination with light, topography, and local traditions, as well as with classical antiquity, Turner brought an innovative approach to the depiction of both modern and ancient ports. In the spring of 2017, The Frick Collection will present Turner's Modern and Ancient Ports: Passages through Time, a major exhibition that brings together some thirty-five works from the 1810s through the late 1830s in oil, watercolor, and graphite that capture contemporary cities in England, France, and Germany, as well as imagined scenes set in the ancient world. It will unite for the first time the museum's two paintings of Dieppe and Cologne with a closely related, yet unfinished, work from Tate Britain that depicts the modern harbor of Brest. The exhibition is organized by Susan Grace Galassi, Senior Curator at The Frick Collection; leading Turner scholar Ian Warrell; and Joanna Sheers Seidenstein, the Frick's Anne L. Poulet Curatorial Fellow. It will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, published in association with Yale University Press. The springboard for this show is a pair of monumental paintings by Turner in The Frick Collection acquired by the museum's founder over a century ago — the Harbor of Dieppe of 1825 and Cologne, The Arrival of a Packet-Boat: Evening of 1826. Due to travel restrictions, however, they have never before been part of an exhibition outside of the Frick. While they are widely recognized as significant turning points in the artist's career, a focused examination of these works is long overdue and will provide an ideal occasion to consider afresh one of the central motifs of Turner's art. This exhibition will also unite for the first time Dieppe and Cologne with a closely related, yet unfinished, work from Tate that depicts the modern harbor of Brest. As supported by recent technical analysis, The Harbor of Brest was likely intended to form a series of monumental European ports with the two Frick paintings. This trio of canvases — all made at a time when Turner was experimenting with the representation of light — offers a fascinating glimpse into his technique as well as the everyday life of major European ports of distinctly different regions. Displayed alongside these paintings will be two sketchbooks filled with drawings made on site by Turner during his travels to the Continent, the material from which he later developed his canvases. The exhibition also features three oil paintings from the later 1820s and 1830s in which Turner continues to explore the motif of the port, now as a setting for narrative scenes drawn from classical history: Regulus (London, Tate Britain); Ancient Italy: Ovid Banished from Rome (private collection); and Ancient Rome: Agrippina Landing with the Ashes of Germanicus (London, Tate Britain). These evocations of ancient Rome and Carthage share with the artist's modern ports their compositional format — a central expanse of water, with land on either side, beneath a luminous sky — and their array of quotidian detail — the same variety of mundane objects and figures at work and at leisure that appear in the Harbor of Dieppe and Cologne — now evoking the daily life of a long bygone era. Into these light-filled and richly detailed scenes, Turner integrates his narrative content — momentous scenes of arrival and departure that look forward and back. The close relationship of Turner's modern and ancient ports reveals the extent to which observation and imagination overlap in his process. Central to the exhibition are a selection of some two-dozen of Turner's watercolors from these same years, often made for series of prints for a bourgeoning class of leisure travelers in the post-Napoleonic era. Representing port towns and cities along the various waterways of the British Isles and Continental Europe, these dazzling small-scale works share with the grand harbors of the 1820s their picturesque subject matter and formal qualities of composition and color. The breathtaking effects of light and color that Turner achieved in watercolor, in fact, informed his work on canvas, resulting in a freer approach to his use of materials and painting technique, as seen in the Frick pictures and in the ancient scenes.

Boro-Linc Manhattan: Community Artist Residency with Cozbi Cabrera - Manny Cantor Center
Through May 18, 2017 - New York City

Lincoln Center seeks to build collaborative partnerships with local artists to support the incredible work being done in NYC's borough communities, as well as to increase access to audiences, opportunities, and professional resources. The Boro-Linc Community Artist Residency Program offers local artists the opportunity to create, promote, and lead a semester-long workshop series that connects their practice to the issues relevant to the area and culminates in an art event in one of Boro-Linc's Community Partner neighborhoods. Additionally, this program will task artists with connecting their practice to Lincoln Center programming to conduct pre-performance art-making workshops as part of the 2016–17 Boro-Linc season. This residency will involve a series of quilting sessions, each one working with a square to add to our communal quilt that will be displayed at our culminating event. Participants can take their quilt squares home to work on in more detail between sessions, if need be. To approach the notion of identity we will start with the idea of origin. Where do we come from? Who came before us? While some of these questions can be answered through biological inheritance/tracking, for some, particularly those with broken biological links, a figure of influence can be found through a social connection. For many, this sort of probing will stir stories of immigration, cultural shifts, and adaptations. If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please contact Education Alliance's Manny Cantor Center.

Control Syntax Rio - Storefront for Art and Architecture
Through May 20, 2017 - New York

Storefront for Art and Architecture, in collaboration with the Het Nieuwe Instituut, presents Control Syntax Rio at Storefront's gallery space at 97 Kenmare Street. The exhibition will open on Monday, March 27th at 7 pm. Control Syntax Rio examines Rio de Janeiro's civic command center, Centro de Operações Rio (COR) as both a model of computational smart city governance and as a symbol of new spaces of representation of the 21st century city. About Control Syntax Rio Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visible sites of smart city experimentation. In response to catastrophic natural disasters, calamitous traffic congestion, and urban health epidemics, the Centro de Operções Rio (COR) was designed as a corrective tool and as a new command and control hub that would allow the city to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games. Launched in 2010, COR now monitors its urban camera network and information sensors, gauges optimal traffic patterns, determines landslide risk zones, predicts weather disruptions, and maps disease paths. Rio's wild topography, wealth disparities, and aging infrastructure make it an unlikely testing ground for the smooth rationality of urban management that smart city rhetoric proclaims. Through COR, the predictable impression of Rio de Janeiro as a lush playground of beaches and samba dancers conflicts with the new image of a Rio governed by smart city control systems. As it becomes increasingly marked by extreme police tactics and political protests, Rio appears less a case of urban optimization than a platform for viewing the conflicts that have erupted around urban data management, civil rights, and issues of social control. Yet, COR also signals a new form of participatory civic politics. Citizens visiting COR headquarters are able to observe COR operations and the data COR collects and displays. Through this demonstration of openness and access, COR serves as a public relations space from which the city attempts to broadcast an image of informational transparency and competent urban administration. Control Syntax Rio shows the city of Rio structured through COR's control syntax and smart city command processes. This syntax is assembled from seemingly banal "if-then" statements that become surprisingly charged by their encounters with the political and circulatory life of the city. Through COR, the exhibition sees traffic engineering as urban politics and as haunted by potential catastrophe. In the exhibition, a street route through Rio de Janeiro doubles as a COR decision path. COR assesses every incident to learn if it will escalate to an event, an emergency, or a crisis. Through this code, we are able to perceive glimpses of the current image of urban computational governmentality, not only blithely directed toward engineered efficiency, but also saturated with a thousand narratives of possible threat, risk, disruption, and instability.

I'm Nobody! Who are you? The Life and Poetry of Emily Dickinson - Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 21, 2017 - New York

One of the most popular and enigmatic American writers of the nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) wrote almost 1,800 poems. Nevertheless, her work was essentially unknown to contemporary readers since only a handful of poems were published during her lifetime and a vast trove of her manuscripts was not discovered until after her death in 1886. Often typecast as a recluse who rarely left her Amherst home, Dickinson was, in fact, socially active as a young woman and maintained a broad network of friends and correspondents even as she grew older and retreated into seclusion. Bringing together nearly one hundred rarely seen items, including manuscripts and letters, I'm Nobody! Who are you?—a title taken from her popular poem—is the most ambitious exhibition on Dickinson to date. It explores a side of her life that is seldom acknowledged: one filled with rich friendships and long-lasting relationships with mentors and editors. The exhibition closely examines twenty-four poems in various draft states, with corresponding audio stops. In addition to her writings, the show also features an array of visual material, including hand-cut silhouettes, photographs and daguerreotypes, contemporary illustrations, and other items that speak to the rich intellectual and cultural environment in which Dickinson lived and worked. The exhibition is organized in conjunction with Amherst College.

WEATHER OR NOT, THAT IS THE QUESTION - The Children's Museum of the Arts
Through May 21, 2017 - Greenwich Village

Children's Museum of the Arts is pleased to announce Weather or Not, That is the Question, an exhibition about the power, mystery, and grandeur of weather and its impact on our environment. From early religious texts, to Farmers' Almanacs, weather tracking apps, and daily conversation, extreme weather has captivated human interest and conversation. We continue to be awed and intrigued by phenomenon such as record-breaking snowfall, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados and hurricanes. With the words "global warming" and "climate change" never far from the headlines, artists tie together the scientific and creative worlds in acts of beauty and activism. Aristotle reasoned that imitation forms the basis of art, and that art imitates nature—some works perhaps more literally than others. In Weather or Not, That is the Question, artists Kim Abeles, Matthew Albanese, Suzanne Anker, Blane De St. Croix, Sandy Gellis, Nathalie Miebach, Nnenna Okore, and Virginia Wagner explore art's ability to make environmentalism a priority and bring climate initiatives to the forefront of cultural conversations. Weather—we love to hate it, we love to complain about it, but we also love to love it.

The Poetics of Place: Contemporary Photographs from The Met Collection - The Met
Through May 28, 2017 - New York

This installation of contemporary photography from The Met collection surveys the diverse ways in which contemporary artists have photographed landscape and the built world over the last half century. The exhibition opens with works from the late 1960s and early 1970s by artists in America and Europe who brought the lessons of Minimal and Conceptual art to bear on views of nature both raw and acculturated. Also included are a series of unique Polaroid prints made by Walker Evans in Hale County—the setting for his famous 1930s photographs of Alabama sharecroppers—near the end of his life. Images from the 1980s and 1990s attest to a swing away from the "deskilling" associated with radical '60s art making and toward a new interest in technically assured large-scale prints that nevertheless incorporated earlier lessons from Land art, Conceptualism, and other postwar avant-garde movements. The exhibition concludes with recently made works—including Wolfgang Staehle's mesmerizing piece Eastpoint (September 15, 2004) (2004–6), which projects a 24-hour cycle of more than 8,000 still images, synchronized to real time, of the same Hudson River that inspired such American painters as Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church.

Renaissance Portrait Medals from the Robert Lehman Collection - The Met
Through May 29, 2017 - New York

This exhibition is the first to present the Renaissance portrait medals of the Robert Lehman Collection. The selection features approximately 30 medals from Italy and Northern Europe, including early bronze examples by Pisanello, the celebrated artist who invented this art form in the mid-15th century, as well as rare wax models dating to the 17th century. Works of technical and stylistic virtuosity, the medals combine poignant portraits of contemporary rulers, dignitaries, and literary figures on one side, and rich, symbolic imagery on the other. The commemorative medal epitomized seminal cultural values of the Renaissance period, namely, the emphasis on the primacy of the individual and the revival of classical antiquity. The exhibition, which explores the development and role of the portrait medal in Renaissance culture, as well as production techniques, celebrates the recently published catalogue of the Lehman Collection's holdings of European sculpture and metalwork.

Renaissance Maiolica: Painted Pottery for Shelf and Table - The Met
Through May 29, 2017 - New York

This exhibition of Renaissance maiolica, drawn exclusively from The Met's world-renowned collection, celebrates the publication of Maiolica, Italian Renaissance Ceramics in The Metropolitan Museum of Art by Timothy Wilson. As Wilson writes, "Painted pottery, at its most ambitious, is a serious form of Italian Renaissance art, with much to offer those interested in the wider culture of this astoundingly creative period." This creativity was applied to a vast range of practical objects. The exhibition includes tableware and serving vessels, desk ornaments, storage containers, devotional objects, as well as sculpture, all made in painted and tin-glazed earthenware. The maiolica tradition flourished from the 15th to the 17th century. Italian potters transformed techniques they owed to the Islamic world into something entirely unprecedented, and in turn laid the foundations for similar pottery traditions across Europe. Potters and pottery painters exploited innovations of the Renaissance goldsmith, sculptor, and painter in what was a relatively humble medium. That it was owned by the social elite of Italy, however, testifies to its artistic value. This exhibition explores how the different functions of Renaissance maiolica dictated the ways painted pottery was seen and decorated. Groups of objects are installed in displays suggestive of their use. An assembly of storage jars give a sense of a pharmacy's shelves. Among the tableware on display are istoriato plates and dishes—their surfaces covered with scenes from mythology and ancient history—from some of the most important services commissioned by leading Italian families. The exhibition also shows maiolica-makers using ceramic, paint, and glaze to compete with other art forms, including a Madonna and Child that imitates a framed panel painting and a Lamentation group that likely once functioned as a sculpted altarpiece, the largest known example of sculptural maiolica to survive.

Excerpt - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through June 02, 2017 - Midtown

For generations, artists have used text and books to challenge the purveyors of knowledge and to trouble the certainty of facts. Books are often thought about, researched and developed at the expense of marginalized groups, especially black people. Working with text and books, many artists seek to subvert historical paradigms of narrative control and dissemination of knowledge. These artists’ methods include physically breaking down the medium, pushing the scope of text and blurring the lines of the written word and the visual landscape. Excerpt explores how artists use books and language as a form of resistance, putting pressure on the way knowledge is written and shared. Through reworking our reading, these artists provide new understanding for themselves and viewers. Excerpt features approximately fifteen artists. Alumni of the Studio Museum’s Artist-in-Residence program, including Sadie Barnette, Bethany Collins, Meleko Mokgosi and Xaviera Simmons, figure prominently in the exhibition, along with Glenn Ligon, Gary Simmons, Kara Walker and more. Excerpt is organized by Adeze Wilford, The Studio Museum in Harlem/MoMA Curatorial Fellow.

Exhibition: Wilderness Camp - Brooklyn Children's Museum
Through June 04, 2017 - Crown Heights

Brooklyn Children’s Museum announces a new exhibit, Wilderness Camp, an indoor experience that brings the great outdoors to family audiences through role-play and the exploration of nature. This interactive installation created in partnership with contemporary artist Tattfoo Tan, gives families the opportunity to explore how we interact with and rely on nature for our basic needs and resources. Kids and their caregivers will learn about different ways of creating shelters, plants that provide food and building materials, and techniques that transform natural materials into functional, everyday objects. Wilderness Camp offers visitors the opportunity to take on the roles of outdoor explorers and gain a heightened appreciation of our precious natural resources that we can all work toward preserving. Exhibit components include immersive tent structures containing activities like macramé and shadow puppets, a campfire ring for storytelling and programs, graphic posters of step-by-step survival techniques including food preservation, campfire building, and tool making, and an interactive display of cultural objects from BCM’s collection alongside Tan’s artworks that utilize similar materials and techniques. Opportunities for role-play abound, as children and their caregivers put on a backpack filled with some of the necessities of wilderness exploration- a compass, canteen, mess kit, magnifying glass, net, blanket, tools, and a map of local trails and green spaces to explore.

An Opening Reception with Live Tattoo Demonstration and a Silent Auction will be held Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 6-8pm, RSVP required. Visit southstreetseaportmuseum.org for reservation info. The exhibition is included with Museum admission: South Street Seaport Museum members: FREE, $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $6 for children ages 2 – 17. Tickets can be purchased online at http://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/ or in person at 12 Fulton St. The Original Gus Wagner: The Maritime Roots of Modern Tattoo explores Augustus “Gus” Wagner’s (American, 1872-1941) early life as a merchant mariner and tattoo artist who traveled the world, from 1898-1902, and his return to the United States as a professional tattooist and tattooed man. Gus Wagner was born in 1872 in Marietta, Ohio, a trading and boat building town on the Ohio River. At age twelve he saw his first heavily tattooed man, "Captain Costentenus the Greek Albanian," in a traveling show. As a young man he hit the road as an itinerant salesman and laborer. In 1897 he boarded the cargo steamer Bellona at Newport News, Virginia, thus embarking on a four-year career as a merchant seaman. By traveling around the world, Gus Wagner got to know many seaports: Vera Cruz, London, Cape Town, Sydney, Auckland, Honolulu, New York, San Francisco, and others. It was during this time that he discovered the art of tattooing. He claimed that he learned to tattoo from tribesmen in Java and Borneo who showed him how to use traditional hand-made tools. By 1901, Gus reportedly had 264 tattoos of his own, (and over 800 by 1908) allowing him to promote himself as "the most artistically marked up man in America.” After briefly moving home to Ohio, Gus embarked on a forty-year career as a traveling tattooist, tattooed man, and circus performer. He largely eschewed the new electric tattooing machines that transformed the art form after 1890, and remained faithful to his hand-held instruments. With other wandering artists, he carried tattooing inland from coastal ports, making it part of the culture of small-town America in the 20th century. The exhibition will show original and reproduced artifacts from the Seaport Museum’s Alan Govenar and Kaleta Doolin Tattoo Collection such as tattooing tools, a selection of tattoo flashes (drawings and sketches, on recycled paper based materials, displaying variations of tattoo designs) and a selection of pages from the artist’s scrapbook – a 400 page book composed of press clippings, postcards, business cards, sketches, and photographs, that relate to his introduction to tattooing as a sailor. Due to the fragile condition of the collection, most of the artifacts will be shown via reproductions. A video will show the turning of the pages of Gus Wagner’s various canvas books, like Gus’s clients were doing nearly a century ago. The exhibition will familiarize viewers with hand tattoo techniques, and make the case for the importance of researching, documenting, and preserving tattoo collections in museums and research institutes. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, January 28th, 6-8 pm. Two live tattooing demonstrations, with Gus Wagner original designs, will be part of the event, thanks to Daredevil Tattoo Museum’s co-owners Michelle Myles and Brad Fink. A silent auction will also happen during the evening. Auction items include two gift certificates for two Gus Wagner tattoos that Daredevil’s co-owners would make at a later date; one walking tour of New York City’s tattoo history sites by Michelle Myles; and a few rare signed copies of publications and films on tattooing. All funds raised during the evening will be dedicated toward the conservation of the South Street Seaport Museum’s tattoo collection. Lectures and all-ages public programs will take place throughout the length of the exhibition in collaboration with Daredevil Tattoo Museum, New-York Historical Society, and Tattly. The exhibition is curated by Alan Govenar, with Martina Caruso, Collections Manager and Registrar, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections Assistant at the Seaport Museum. The design and art direction is curated by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum’s historic print shop. This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional funds are provided by Communities Foundation of Texas, Daredevil Tattoo Museum, Tattoo Archive, and the Paul Rogers Tattoo Research Center. Alan Govenar (Exhibition Curator) is a writer, folklorist, photographer, and filmmaker. He is president of Documentary Arts. Govenar has a B.A. with distinction in American Folklore from Ohio State University, an M.A. in Folklore and Anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Ph.D. in Arts and Humanities from the University of Texas at Dallas. He is the author of twenty-nine books, including Texas Blues: The Rise of a Contemporary Sound, Stompin’ at the Savoy: The Story of Norma Miller, Extraordinary Ordinary People: Five American Masters of Traditional Arts, Untold Glory: African Americans in Pursuit of Freedom, Opportunity and Achievement, Jasper, Texas: The Community Photographs of Alonzo Jordan, Deep Ellum: The Other Side of Dallas, Portraits of Community, and The Early Years of Rhythm and Blues. Stoney Knows How: Life as a Sideshow Tattoo Artist, Govenar has written numerous articles on tattooing and has co-authored with Ed Hardy three books on tattooing Flash from the Past: Classic American Tattoo Designs 1890-1965, Art for Life, and Beyond Skin. Govenar’s film, Stoney Knows How, based on his book by the same title about Old School tattoo artist Leonard St. Clair, was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and was selected as an Outstanding Film of the Year by the London Film Festival. Govenar has also produced and directed numerous films in association with NOVA, La Sept/ARTE, and the corporation for public broadcasting for broadcast and educational distribution. The off-Broadway premiere of Govenar’s musical Texas in Paris received rave reviews in The New York Times and Huffington Post.

SACRED SPACES HIMALAYAN WIND AND THE TIBETAN BUDDHIST SHRINE ROOM - Rubin Museum of Art
Through June 05, 2017 - Chelsea

Sacred Spaces invites visitors to reflect on devotional activities in awe-inspiring places. For the second iteration of the exhibition, the Museum commissioned an installation by Soundwalk Collective in collaboration with sound artist Francisco López called Khandroma: Himalayan Wind, which transports visitors to the high Himalayas through sound. In the spring and summer of 2016 Soundwalk Collective and Francisco López traveled to Upper Mustang, Nepal, to record the sounds in and surrounding the world's highest monasteries—the flapping of prayer flags, the chanting of blessings, the echoes of wind from the valley below, and the interplay of sound and silence.

Han Youngsoo: Photographs Of Seoul 1956–63 - International Center of Photography
Through June 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition is the first major U.S. showing of the work of Korean photographer Han Youngsoo, who captured the dramatic transformation of Seoul in the years after the end of the Korean War. After taking part in bitter frontline fighting as a young South Korean soldier during the Korean War (1950–53), Han Youngsoo returned to Seoul at the conflict's end and found a devastated, impoverished city. Choosing photography as a profession, he witnessed a period of profound transformation in Seoul that saw the rapid creation of a modern city and urban society. His photographs, rarely seen outside of Korea until now, offer a fascinating window onto the changing everyday lives of the city's inhabitants during a historic moment. Han Youngsoo: Photographs of Seoul 1956–63 has been organized by ICP Adjunct Curator Christopher Phillips and Waterfall Mansion & Gallery, New York City, with the collaboration of the Han Youngsoo Foundation, Seoul.

From March 9 through June 24, 2017, the Onassis Cultural Center New York presents A World of Emotions: Ancient Greece, 700 BC – 200 AD, a groundbreaking exploration of emotional life in ancient times and its contemporary reverberations. Prompting questions about how we express, control, manipulate, or simulate feelings in our own society, the exhibition brings together more than 130 masterpieces from internationally renowned museums—including the Acropolis Museum; National Archaeological Museum, Athens; Louvre; British Museum; and Vatican Museums—many of which will be on view in the United States for the first time, and some of which will be seen for the first time outside Greece.

The Aesthetic Movement in America - The Met
Through June 25, 2017 - New York

This installation highlights a great strength of The Met collection—arts of the late 19th-century Anglo-American Aesthetic movement. Featuring a range of art furniture, ceramics, stained glass, metalwork, textiles, painting, and sculpture—most from the Museum's permanent holdings and a few select loans—the display explores Aestheticism as a cultural phenomenon of its time that promoted beauty as an artistic, social, and moral force, particularly in the domestic realm. The catalyst for the phenomenon's widespread popularity in the United States was the 1876 Centennial International Exhibition, held in Philadelphia, and Aestheticism remained a driving force through the late 1880s, especially in New York. The period witnessed the flourishing of an artistic culture and lifestyle movement that also encompassed painting, sculpture, and works on paper; the proliferation of art publications, clubs, and societies; an intense interest in collecting and decoration; and the founding of the nation's major art museums. Aesthetic furnishings and objects were intended for fully integrated domestic spaces—as seen, for example, in The Met's latest historical interior, the Worsham-Rockefeller Dressing Room, on view nearby—and reveal the progressive tastes and collaborative spirit of the era.

Simple Gifts: Shaker at The Met - The Met
Through June 25, 2017 - New York

The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing—also known as the Shakers—is a utopian religious sect that rose to prominence in America in the 19th century. The Shakers distinguished themselves from mainstream American culture by establishing communities centered on the equality of the sexes, collective property, pacifism, and industry. This installation features more than two dozen works from The Met's permanent collection, including furniture, textiles, and tools, that reflect the Shakers' life and art. These objects embody the Shakers' characteristic, minimalist designs and careful craftsmanship, both of which strongly influenced 19th-century counterparts in the external world as well as 20th- and 21st-century modern artists, performers, collectors, and museums. From the 1930s to '60s, collectors Faith and Edward Andrews cultivated relationships with surviving Shaker groups in New York and New England and accumulated the most comprehensive collection of furniture, textiles, and archival objects from the Believers. In 1966, The Met acquired numerous works from the Andrewses' collection, several of which are on view in this installation. In addition, Shaker artifacts are grouped near paintings by artist Charles Sheeler (1883–1965) and a video projection of Martha Graham's modern dance Appalachian Spring, which was performed on a stage set designed by Isamu Noguchi and choreographed to Aaron Copland's timeless musical score. The blending of historic and modern artwork in this installation provides a compelling narrative on the legacy of Shaker design from the 19th through the 21st century.

The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
Through June 25, 2017 -

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine mounts an exhibition showcasing its collection of The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome which will be open from Tuesday, March 21, 2017 until Sunday, June 25, 2017 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street). The twelve-panel tapestry series, the Life of Christ, was originally installed at the Vatican and the Barberini family palaces before coming to America at the end of the nineteenth century. This exhibition brings together the series for the first time in many decades. In 2001, a major fire destroyed the Cathedral's north transept and seriously damaged several of the Life of Christ tapestries. The Textile Conservation Laboratory, renowned worldwide for its work on antique and modern textiles, has spent the past 16 years cleaning and conserving the tapestries, culminating in this highly anticipated exhibition. Fragments from one of the most heavily damaged tapestries will be displayed in the exhibition, along with text and illustrations providing a fascinating glimpse into the advanced methods and painstaking care required to return the series to its original glory. A variety of educational programs will accompany the exhibition, including family and school workshops focusing on craftsmanship and guilds. Other events during the course of the exhibition will include gallery tours, hands-on art projects, and a self-guided scavenger hunt incorporating many of the Cathedral's sumptuous artworks. Program and workshop prices vary, with special events available for adults and children of all ages. Entry to the Cathedral and the exhibition is free with a suggested contribution of $10. For more information about the exhibition, please visit the Cathedral's event page.

Curtain Up: Celebrating the Last 40 Years of Theatre in New York and London - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Cafe

The Society of London Theatre and London's Victoria and Albert Museum have partnered with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center to celebrate the extraordinary story of the world's two greatest theatrical districts, London's West End and New York's Broadway in a ground-breaking new exhibition—Curtain Up: Celebrating the Last 40 Years of Theatre in New York and London. Curtain Up celebrates the coincidence of two anniversaries of the biggest awards for commercial theatre: 40 years of the Olivier Awards in London and 70 years of the Tonys® in New York. By telling the story of the plays, musicals and productions that have won both an Olivier and a Tony Award, Curtain Up explores the craft and collaboration that creates spectacular international theatre. Visitors will be able to explore and interact with unique collections from both the V&A and The Library for the Performing Arts highlighting how the theatre districts of both cities have flourished and developed since 1976.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern - Brooklyn Museum
Through July 23, 2017 - Brooklyn

Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern offers a new look at an iconic American artist who had her first solo museum exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, in 1927. Presenting O'Keeffe's remarkable wardrobe in dialogue with iconic paintings and photographs spanning her career, this singular exhibition provides a focused examination of the modernist aesthetic persona O'Keeffe crafted for herself through her dress, her art, and her progressive, independent lifestyle. Included are photographs by such luminaries as Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Annie Leibovitz, Philippe Halsman, Yousuf Karsh, Cecil Beaton, Bruce Weber, and others. These images and the garments and artworks on view confirm O'Keeffe's radical rethinking of female identity. Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern examines her drive to overturn the early, reductive characterization of her as solely a woman artist who created "feminine imagery," as well as her often conflicted relationship with second-wave feminists who championed her work in the 1970s. The exhibition also reveals O'Keeffe's commitment to core principles associated with modernism —minimalism, seriality, simplification—not only in her art, but also in her distinctive style of dress.

- Dia - Chelsea
Through July 29, 2017 - New York

Dia presents an exhibition of Kishio Suga's work at Dia:Chelsea at 541 West 22nd Street in New York City. Suga is a founding member of Mono-ha (School of Things), which emerged in Japan in the 1960s and 1970s and developed in parallel with Postminimal and Land art in the United States and Arte Povera in Europe—movements at the core of Dia's permanent collection. Curated by Jessica Morgan and Alexis Lowry, this is Suga's first solo museum show in the United States. In this exhibition, Suga responds to the building's unique history as a marble-cutting facility by recreating his Placement of Condition (1973), a signature installation of cut stones that lean precariously away from each other, but are bound together with wire into a mutually dependent and stable network. This work is on view alongside a selection of other significant historical installations and new works conceived specifically for Dia that explore issues of balance and structure and that respond to the physical parameters of the space. His new commission investigates material equilibrium through a series of interweaving metal rods that are perched on top of wooden uprights. Kishio Suga is made possible by significant support from Marissa Sackler. Generous support is also provided by Blum & Poe, Frances Bowes, Nathalie and Charles de Gunzburg, and Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, with additional support from Estrellita B. Brodsky and the Japan Foundation, New York.

Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection - MoMA PS1
Through July 30, 2017 - Long Island City

This exhibition brings together work made in the past decade by more than a dozen artists. These recent additions to the Museum's collection explore the unrest, anxiety, and critical reflection that characterizes our world. Responding to today's fierce identity politics and crises of truth, the exhibition includes artworks that construct imagined scenarios or use observation of real events in subjective depictions. In particular, the works consider the vagaries of state violence, the implications of global capitalism, and the contemporary reverberations of transatlantic slavery. These artists look back to traditions both within and beyond the visual arts, such as readymade sculpture, film montage, and folk storytelling, to imagine possibilities for an uncertain future. The exhibition includes works by John Akomfrah, Jonathas de Andrade, Anna Boghiguian, Samuel Fosso, Iman Issa, Cameron Rowland, Wolfgang Tillmans, Kara Walker, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, among others. Organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art and Director MoMA PS1; Lucy Gallun, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art; Christian Rattemeyer, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints; and Yasmil Raymond, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture.

Show and Tell: Stories in Chinese Painting - The Met
Through August 06, 2017 - New York

In China, paintings that tell stories serve as powerful vehicles to promote political agendas, endorse cultural values, or express personal thoughts. With masterpieces dating from the fourth century, narrative is the earliest established genre in Chinese painting. This exhibition is the first at The Met to explore the various ways in which Chinese artists have gone beyond mere illustration to convey multiple layers of meaning. Displaying works from the 12th century to the present, this exhibition introduces three distinct modes of pictorial storytelling: multipart illustrations presented in long handscrolls, often punctuated with passages of text; single iconic scenes that evoke an entire story; and generic landscapes or flower-and-bird paintings that acquire narrative significance through the artist's inscription. The exhibition is further organized by theme: historical events, seasonal progression, warfare, journeys, Buddhist and Confucian values, and family and friendship. One special gallery focuses on a grandiose military narrative—that of China's annexation of East Turkestan in the 1750s. The installation, a collaboration among three Museum departments, features a suite of European engravings alongside Chinese weaponry and a painting to show how an emperor exploited art for his own aggrandizement. Contemporary Chinese artists have continued the narrative tradition with an expanded repertoire of subjects and approaches. The examples on display range from reflections on the creative process to critiques of modern technology and government policies. Together, the approximately 60 pictorial works and 30 decorative art objects, most from The Met collection, present a comprehensive view of the narrative genre, demonstrating its expressive versatility and continuing relevance.

Within this intensely intimate work, we explore the physicality of fulfillment and disappointment, and the tension between the comfort one finds in community and the stifling pressure to conform. in the shelter of the fold is comprised of a cycle of six imagistic dances that can be shown as stand-alone works or as an interrelated episodic event. The dance’s score comprises works by six of the most innovative 21st century composers working today. RECOMPOSED (2015), Music by Michael Gordon ReComposed is a visual dance creation inspired by American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, set to Michael Gordon’s explosive score, Dystopia. With gestural, sometimes violent brushwork, Mitchell described her paintings as “an organism that turns in space.” I recognize this visceral energy within my own dance making, creating human moving landscapes that hauntingly echo Mitchell’s explosions on canvas. “Varone created a moving work of art.” - The Durham Herald “Mr. Varone is uncommonly adept in setting a stage aswirl with lines of energy. Bodies tangle and untangle at high speed, with limbs loosely flying, and if their paths left marks in the air, the result might indeed resemble one of the Mitchell pastels that are the inspiration for ‘ReComposed.’” - The New York Times POSSESSION (1994), Music by Philip Glass “Through lashing movement sprung from ordinary gesture, along with evocative lifts, holds and falls, ‘Possession’ evokes the temper of our time – equal parts isolation, anxiety, violence and anomie.” - New York Magazine THE FABULIST (2014), Music by David Lang “Varone is, I believe, a great humanist. Something, probably honesty, makes his movement powerfully touching – you feel like he is telling you secrets in the dark. I was brought to tears by this sight and pretty much all of the dance. If Varone has ever interested you, do not miss this solo.” - Five Points LUX (2006), Music by Philip Glass “Luxuriant. ‘Lux’ is all about freedom. It is what dancing really feels like, the kind of dancing I might dream about: loose and sweeping in a spirit of exultation. Varone puts the beating heart at the center of his work.” - The Washington Post STRICT LOVE (1994), Musical selections from various popular artists “This gray persona, which all the dancers took on, juxtaposed to the music, which included Diana Ross’s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,’ was bizarre and fascinating. ‘Strict Love’ was one of those dances that leaves audiences begging for more.” - The Daily Gazette STRIPPED/DRESSED: A unique concept for an evening of dance Building off the huge success of Varone’s sold-out NYC studio series, STRIPPED, Varone is taking his idea to the Mainstage as a way of opening dialogues with new dance presenters and their audiences nationwide. It opens doors for new dance audiences, allowing them to literally see the process of how a dance unfolds from beginnings to fruition in one evening. * STRIPPED: Varone’s articulate and insightful way of dissecting his choreography for dance audiences helps to demystify the art form for many viewers, and provides an overture for experiencing his work. The first half of the evening, with Varone as MC, provides an intimate look at his creative process. The Company, dressed in only rehearsal clothes, under simple lights, presents a detailed look into the intricacies of how dances are created and performed * DRESSED: After a short Q&A and an intermission, the Company returns with the second half of the evening: presenting fully produced dances, complete with lights and costumes.

Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

This survey, the first museum exhibition on Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974) in the United States, coincides with the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of this revered and distinctive Italian artist—a canonical art brut figure included in Jean Dubuffet's collection from the 1960s. The show highlights four distinct phases in Zinelli's oeuvre and new scholarship, through a selection of fifty-five paintings (many displayed double-sided), audio recordings of Zinelli, a film, and images by Life magazine photographer John Phillips. The exhibition brings together artworks from the American Folk Art Museum and other private and public collections from the United States and abroad, notably the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli, Verona, and the collection of Audrey B. Heckler, New York. Curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut. An exhibition brochure is available.

Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible - American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

Throughout his life, Eugen Gabritschevsky displayed a precocious passion for the natural sciences, particularly entomology. Born in Russia, he completed advanced degrees in biology and genetics in Moscow, before pursuing postdoctoral studies in 1925 at Columbia University. Soon after he joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1927, his successful career was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931. There, and for the rest of his life, Gabritschevsky elaborated a prolific, refined, and heterogeneous body of work—gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper—imbued with his early scientific interests, observation skills, and a propensity for experimentation. This first in-depth exhibition of Gabritschevsky's relatively unknown artistic contribution is composed of more than eighty artworks, a film, publications, and archival documents. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, and La maison rouge, Paris. The New York presentation is curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut.

Love in Venice - New York Public Library: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
Through August 26, 2017 - Manhattan

This exhibition is part of Carnegie Hall's citywide festival La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic. A tolerant and secular state, the Venetian Republic originated in the lagoon communities around Venice and existed for half a millennium, from 1297 until 1797. Dominated by a merchant capitalist elite who did business through sea trade, the Republic of Venice enjoyed an autonomy and freedom that was not typical of the rest of Italy, and which for centuries made it a destination for love and pleasure. Titled "Love in Venice," the exhibition at The New York Public Library will examine the literary, artistic, musical and cultural aspects of Venice's seductiveness, including its beautiful courtesans, lavish festivals, lively carnivals and libertine counter-culture. On view will be works as diverse as the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, one of the most iconic works produced in Venice to explore ideas of desire, to flap books showing the undergarments of Venetian prostitutes, etchings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, letters from Lord Byron's paramours and examples of wedding poetry celebrating the unions of leading European families.

Is anything really as it seems? Don’t believe everything you see and hear in the world of ILLUSION – the new mind-bending exhibition opening at Liberty Science Center on February 4. Making its Northeast debut, ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems provides perception-shattering insight into the human mind while playfully combining the techniques used by magicians and explored by psychologists.

Visitors will question their reality and their perceptions of the world as their senses become distorted and logical thinking mystified. Some of the experiences include: The Invisible Eye allows you to see an eyeball construct itself from thin air Gaze into a mirror and morph into your inner animal at All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures. Delicate Boundaries creates a space that allows the worlds inside our digital devices to move into the physical realm as bugs crawl off the screen and onto your body, Counter, using a trompe l’oeil effect, tries to convince us that a two dimensional object is actually three dimensional.

Collecting the Arts of Mexico - The Met
Through September 04, 2017 - New York

In 1911, Emily Johnston de Forest gave her collection of pottery from Mexico to The Met. Calling it "Mexican maiolica," she highlighted its importance as a North American artistic achievement. De Forest was the daughter of the Museum's first president and, with her husband, Robert, a founder of The American Wing. The De Forests envisioned building a collection of Mexican art, and, even though their ambitions were frustrated at the time, the foundational gift of more than one hundred pieces of pottery anchors The Met's holdings. Today, more than a century later, their vision resonates as the Museum commits to collecting and exhibiting not just the arts of Mexico, but all of Latin America. This exhibition highlights the early contributions of the De Forests and others, and presents recent additions to the collection for the first time.

Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim - Society of Illustrators
Through September 06, 2017 - New York

Solomon R. Guggenheim's wholehearted embrace of modern art around the age of 68 was not so dissimilar from his philosophy for succeeding in business. He had never shied away from pioneering, or introducing novel methods, in his prosperous career as a mining industrialist. Having collected art privately since the 1890s, he was ripe for fresh inspiration when he fatefully encountered the German?born artist Hilla Rebay and the innovations of the contemporary avant-garde. Guggenheim and Rebay were closely aligned from 1929, when they began assembling an art collection grounded in nonobjectivity—a strand of abstraction with spiritual underpinnings—until Solomon's death 20 years later. This defining focus distinguished the eponymous foundation Guggenheim established in New York in June 1937. Two years later the Museum of Non?Objective Painting, the forerunner of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, debuted in New York.

Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the species and find out: why humpbacks seem to be the most acrobatic of all whales, how they produce their haunting songs, and what drives these intelligent, 55-foot-long, 50-ton animals to migrate up to 10,000 miles round trip every year.

Late Antique Textiles and Modern Design - The Met
Through October 01, 2017 - New York

Artists and designers often look to the past to find inspiration for their own work. This exhibition—drawn entirely from The Met collection—compares foliate patterns and roundels that are found on textiles from the Late Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods in Egypt to similar motifs in postcards by the Wiener Werkstätte and on garments designed by Mariano Fortuny (1871–1949). Created in Egypt between about 200 and 600, the textiles on view include a child's dress; fragments from a sleeve, tunic, and blanket or cover; and other fragments whose original use is not known. Variations of the scrolling vines and stylized motifs that adorn these textiles can be seen on works created nearly 1500 years later. The renowned Spanish-born designer Mariano Fortuny was active in Venice, where he founded a textile workshop and commercial silk printing factory. His exquisite designs fuse the ancient and the modern, the local and the exotic. Three different Fortuny-designed silk coats from the first three decades of the 20th century are shown over the course of the exhibition. In cut and ornament, these items harken back to Late Antique historical sources. Founded in 1903 in reaction both to the neoclassical academies of Vienna and increasing industrialization, the Wiener Werkstätte collective sought to incorporate arts and crafts into all aspects of daily life and placed a premium on the handmade. Eight color lithographs created between 1907 and 1912 by various artists and designers affiliated with the group are also on view. Motifs similar to those found on Late Antique textiles were used as graphic elements in these cards and postcards.

On The Line: Intrepid & The Vietnam War - Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Through October 02, 2017 - 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. The exhibition, which is free with the price of admission, will include education programs for teachers and students, and a series of public programs to generate conversation and artistic expression.

Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a substructure (usually wood) and then entails carving through the layers, is the most laborious and time-consuming of all lacquering techniques.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

Mummies - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

For thousands of years, peoples around the world practiced mummification as a way of preserving and honoring their dead. Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. In Mummies, ancient remains from the Nile Valley of Africa and the Andes Mountains of South America will be on view, allowing visitors to connect with cultures from the distant past. Mummification, a more widespread practice than most think, was used not only for royal Egyptians but also for common people and even animals. The process was employed by cultures around the world. In the Chancay culture of Peru, mummifying deceased family members meant relatives could keep connected with their loved ones; some families even brought mummy bundles to festivals. Egyptians, on the other hand, created mummies to help individuals enter the afterlife, often encasing the mummies in elaborately painted sarcophagi. At Mummies, interactive touch tables let visitors virtually "unravel" or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within. Other parts of the exhibition showcase the latest isotopic and DNA testing being performed on mummies, and explain how these sophisticated analytical techniques are helping scientists discover important clues about long-vanished practices. Mummies was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

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.
