His music consistently incorporates the blues, all forms of jazz from New Orleans to modern, swing as the primary rhythm, the American popular song, individual and collective improvisation, and a panoramic vision of compositional styles from ditties to dynamic call-and-response patterns. Mr. Marsalis' body of music places him among the world's most significant composers.

In conjunction with Judith Bernstein: Cabinet of Horrors, The Drawing Center is hosting three evenings of conversations by artist-curator pairings on December 12, 2017; January 16th and 17th, 2018. The program is realized thanks to the generous support of Valeria Napoleone XX and is produced by Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator. Amara Antilla, Assistant Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, joins Cecilia Vicuña to discuss the aesthetics and politics of disappearance and surrender. They will also discuss her New York street performances and actions from the 1980s and 90s and her work in the 1970s in relation to the Chilean coup and international liberation movements, and how we might apply these strategies today. Cecilia Vicuña is a poet, artist, filmmaker, and activist who lives and works in Chile and New York. Born and raised in Santiago de Chile, she has been in exile since the military coup in the early 1970s. Combining ritual and assemblage, she creates multidimensional, ephemeral, participatory, and site-specific works and performance installations which she calls "lo precario" (the precarious), a bridge between art and life, the ancestral and the avant-garde. In Chile she founded the legendary Tribu No in 1967, a group that created anonymous poetic actions. In 1974, exiled in London, she co-founded Artists for Democracy to oppose dictatorships in the Third World. She was appointed Messenger Lecturer 2015 at Cornell University, an honor bestowed on authors who contribute to the evolution of civilization.

Kazakhstan Astana Ballet Gala - Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center
January 17, 2018 - New York

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center Performance at 7:00pm Tickets are FREE. Available for pickup at box office, starting at 6:00pm on the day of performance. Lincoln Center Box office is located on 1941 Broadway, at 65th Street. Limited Availability On January 17, 2018 the Astana Ballet Theater will present the “Kazakhstan Astana Ballet Gala” at Lincoln Center. The performance, presenting choreographic works of varying genres, is part of the “Modern Kazakhstan Culture in the Global World”, a project of the Republic of Kazakhstan Ministry of Culture and Sport. This will be the second such presentation of choreographic works by the company of Astana Ballet Theater at Lincoln Center. The American debut of the country’s leading choreographic talents took place three years ago when a world of elegance, beauty, grace and sophisticated images won over the New York audience. The youngest theater in Kazakhstan was received with immediate affection. This tour presents an original program featuring contrasting scenes of popular ballets and divertissements that reflect Kazakhstan’s culture through the language of dance and movement. “The task that the troupe of the theater has to tackle is not an easy one – to attract the attention of the public to our culture, to present the best of the national and modern ballet art of Kazakhstan”, says Valery Kuzembav, the director of the theater. The Astana Ballet Theatre has absorbed the richness of both modern and classical ballet heritage, spring boarding off this foundation to create new choreographic work and performance art. During the creation of todays’ choreographic miniatures homage is paid to both the study of Kazakh national dance and its modern interpretation. Exposing its harmony and beauty, reflecting the deep inner essence and unique character of the folk dance is of paramount importance for it is through the national dance that the audience is introduced to and gets to appreciate our Kazakh culture. Kazakh national dances are always part of the program and are our calling card. Heritage of the Great Steppe includes choreographic miniatures and scenes from ballets that are rich in national color. All compositions are marked by the rich folk traditions and permeating emotion, tugging at heartstrings with expressive music and remarkable artistic imagery. Heritage of the Great Steppe reflects the dynamic growth and uniqueness of the modern national ballet. Love Fear Loss, a ballet set to the songs of Edith Piaf (choreographed by Ricardo Amarante) and inspired by the remarkable life story of the singer is a dance about emotional attachment moved by hymns of love that took the world by storm. The one act ballet A Fuego Lento tells the story of nascent feelings of anxiousness, emotional heat, and, the force of first love. A powerful wave of excitement takes over the body and desire slowly burns within. The object of affection is the center of the world and the meaning of life is in love (music by Lalo Shifrin, Astor Piazzola, Carlos Gardel, choreography by Ricardo Amarante). Diverse and extraordinary repertoire, performance and staging quality are the reasons Astana Ballet Theater has enjoyed continued success not just in its home country, but with audiences far beyond its borders. The Astana Ballet Theater has performed on the stages of theatres in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Beijing, Paris, Vienna, Seoul, Budapest, Baku, Minsk, New York, Tokyo, Warsaw and Brussels. For the occasion of the Independence Day of Kazakhstan and the candidature of Kazakhstan to the Security Council for 2017-2018.

Percussion Fest: Yathi Trio - The Cornelia Street Cafe
January 17, 2018 - New York

Named after the symmetrical patterns used in South Indian music, the Yathi Trio creatively juxtaposes the unique and complementary timbres of South Indian percussion, guitar, and tenor saxophone. Rhythmically intricate études serve as points of departure for spontaneous convergences. "The opener, mridangam master Rajna Swaminathan's local sextet RAJAS, landed soundly on the promise side. Her pieces for violin, horns, percussion guitar and her own deft drumming wedded beauty by courting chaos, with the methods of loose-knit latter-day jazz at the service of a recognizably South-Asian melody and pulse."— Apollinaire Scherr, Financial Times, 2014

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
January 17, 2018 - New York City

Parsifal, Wagner's final opera, is a majestic work that reaches heavenly heights in its spiritually transcendent third act. Wagner was Bruckner's idol, and the sweeping breadth and tonal language of the older composer inspired much of his music. At the time of his death, Bruckner had only completed three movements of his Ninth Symphony, but what he left is compelling and deeply touching. His symphony ascends from a musical primordial haze to a finale that explores new harmonies and peace in its quiet closing benediction.

Drake Bell, Birds in the Boneyard - Knitting Factory
January 17, 2018 - Brooklyn

Though he had been acting since he was five, when he was filmed in his first commercial, Drake Bell (born Jared Drake Bell in Orange County, California) didn't start playing the guitar until he was cast in the 2001 TV movie Chasing Destiny, also starring the Who's Roger Daltrey, who gave the young performer his initial lessons. As a teenager, though Drake was focusing on acting, he continued to play music and write songs on the side, and after a program he was in, Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show, was canceled in 2002, and a spinoff, The Drake and Josh Show, was started (it first aired in 2004), Bell was able to finally show off his chops onscreen, writing the theme song, "Found a Way," and playing an exaggerated version of his guitarist self named Drake Parker. Heavily influenced by the Beatles and the Beach Boys, Drake released his debut, Telegraph, independently in 2005; soon after he signed to Universal, who put out his sophomore record, It's Only Time, the following year. The live album, Drake Bell in Concert, appeared in 2008 and it wouldn't be until 2011 that Drake would release any new material, with the stopgap EP A Reminder.

Nate Staniforth: Real Magic - Bowery Electric
January 18, 2018 - New York

Nate Staniforth's show is like a 75 minute TED Talk on wonder and amazement, punctuated with a dozen moments of jaw dropping 'Holy s*$%!' Nate is a magician, writer, traveler, and host of the Discovery Channel's international hit TV series Breaking Magic, but don't think of this as a magic show. Nate abandons the ubiquitous style-without-substance bravado so often associated with magic and appeals instead to the imagination and intellect of his audience. With his forthcoming book Here is Real Magic, from the Harry-Potter famed Bloomsbury Publishing, Nate is your guide to finding more wonder in your life. "Just caught a Nate Staniforth show," one reporter tweeted after opening night, "and now I have no idea what to believe about anything ever again." No rabbits. No top hats. No smoke machines. Nate's shows feel more like jumping out of an airplane than a night at a comedy club. The journey is wild, visceral and immediate, and like all great art, encourages us to open our minds and hearts, and see the world in new ways. "When you're young, it's easy to be amazed," says Nate Staniforth. "As you get older, that experience of astonishment gets harder and harder to find. Good magic isn't about deception. It's about trying to see things the way you saw them before they became ordinary." For over a decade, Nate has toured the US college circuit as one of the busiest working magicians in the country. He's given a TED Talk, lectured at the world-famous Oxford Union, and in 2017 the Harry Potter-famed Bloomsbury Publishing will release Nate's memoir in bookstores worldwide. Here is Real Magic follows Nate's evolution from obsessed wunderkind to disillusioned wanderer, and tells the story of his rediscovery of astonishment—and the importance of wonder in everyday life—during his trip to the slums of India, where he infiltrated a 3,000-year-old clan of street magicians. In 2016 the Real Magic Tour will play over 80 shows in theaters around the United States. For more information and tour dates, please visit www.realmagic.com.

Gibbz, Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue (EP Release) - Mercury Lounge
January 18, 2018 - New York

In 2014, New York native, Mike Gibney, wanted to get away from his past of working for touring artists as a sound engineer and tour manager, to focus on writing and recording his own music. His debut EP "Who Gibbz a F#@$" showed that he was no longer content with being behind the scenes, but rather yearned for the spotlight. Following up with the "Chardonnay" EP, he aligned himself with other artists that began to see him more as a peer, than a hired hand. He toured extensively through the US and Europe with Gramatik, Cherub, Exmag, Ghost Beach, and the Floozies before independently releasing his first full length album, "Above Water," in 2016. Gibbz finished off 2016 with another EP titled "Oh My God," before tackling his first headlining tour that began 2017. Gibbz just wrapped up a tour supporting Saint Motel and can be found in February 2018 on the "Framily Matters" tour with R.LUM.R. Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue is a new project from Eric "Doc" Mendelsohn, formerly of Ghost Beach and TV/TV. With a funky, tongue-in-cheek vibe, the project explores themes of vice, ego and heartbreak through tragic characters who can't help but get in their own way. Producer Cobrayama, a former member of Exmag, has steadily been releasing a string of singles and mixtapes since his departure from the group. Last year, he partnered with Gibbz to release the collaborative EP SWIM and most recently, he's teamed up with Chicago rapper T.Z. Duhh to bring us a new song called "Orbit." - EARMILK

Tenth Intervention's Silent House: FANTASTIC PLANET with a Live Score! - Videology Bar & Cinema
January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director René Laloux's animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags' oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

In addition to performing in the Broadway hit Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Grace also makes time for her acclaimed original music, both as a solo artist and with her band Grace McLean & Them Apples.

Manhattan User's Guide writes, "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart," and Stephen Holden of the New York Times says "Ms. McLean's voice [is] a flexiible instrument with unexpected reserves of power...Behind her playful adventurousness lies a well of passion."

Input Presents Outlier | Bonobo (Extended DJ Set) at Output - Output
January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

"With the experimental warmth of '60s French films and the pizzicato flavor of horizontal hip-hop, Simon Green's Bonobo project established the welcome niche of a pretension-free, post-party intellectual chillout. An almost silent figure among Ibizian romanticists, Green began in Brighton, debuting in 1999 with a track on Tru Thoughts Recordings' When Shapes Join Together compilation. Though tempted by offers from Mute and XL after the official issue of "The Scuba EP" and the "Terrapin" single, Green stuck with Tru Thoughts for the acclaimed debut LP Animal Magic. Highlighted by downtempo dub, funk, and an equally likable use of sitars, Animal Magic was an obvious success and plans were quickly made for careful European support appearances, as well as a follow-up album, Dial "M" for Monkey, for Coldcut's Ninja Tune label. A tour to support the record followed and was documented on the 2005 EP Live Sessions. BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson's audience voted Bonobo's 2006 effort Days to Come Album of the Year, and two years later the man's live show would be documented on the Live at Koko DVD. After some time off he returned in 2010 with the Black Sands album, featuring the single "The Keeper."" - Dean Carlson, AllMusicGuide

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
January 18, 2018 - New York City

"It's one of astonishing power and beauty," said The New York Times of violinist Janine Jansen's "full-bodied, polished-wood sound." She is the soloist in one of the Romantic era's great works: Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1. It is certainly a showpiece for the soloist, but the concerto is also a work of tremendous lyricism and emotional weight. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of the great Mahler orchestras, performing the composer's Symphony No. 1 at Carnegie Hall—a work that delights with its sounds of nature and lilt of folk song, while uplifting the spirit with its sublime climax.

Alex Aiono - Highline Ballroom
January 18, 2018 - New York

In early 2016, L.A.-based artist Alex Aiono had already amassed a following of millions creating his own "flipped" versions of popular songs. From a one room apartment, where he and his family of six lived, he created his own stage. But then he posted a video where he performed a cleverly arranged mashup of Drake's "One Dance" and Nicky Jam's "Hasta el Amanecer." Revealing his soulful vocals, effortless charisma, and flawless skills at making beats and playing guitar, the video fast went viral and amassed more than 50 million views. For all its catchy perfection, Alex's "One Dance" mash-up only hints at the scope of his talents. A 20-year-old singer/songwriter who plays a half-dozen instruments, Aiono's first music industry connection was made while busking on the Santa Monica Promenade at age 15, and it didn't take long before he was writing songs with the likes of John Legend. Newly signed to Interscope Records, and in the midst of recording his first full-length album, Alex Aiono is delivering his first official single that's sure to expand his devoted following—a fanbase that already includes 4 million YouTube subscribers and fast approaching half a billion views, 1.7 million Instagram followers, and 400k+ Twitter followers. Beyond all of the millions of fans, more impressive is how engaged they are with every song, image and post, finding refuge in his alluring energy.

Krystle Warren - Rough Trade NYC
January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

Krystle Warren Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, now residing in France, Krystle Warren has been coveted by those who have seen her live and held dearly by audiophiles who respect her creative process for obsession to analog and personal artistry. Warren has toured with the likes of Green Gartside, Robyn Hitchcock, Joan As Police Woman, and Rufus Wainwright. She's also headlined through Australia, the UK and EU. Top all that with an invitation to perform in the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival in 2013, where she sang "Miss Celie's Blues" from the film, "The Color Purple". Her debut album, "Circles" was released to critical acclaim in 2009. She performed the album's title track on the BBC's, "Later... With Jools Holland". What followed in 2011 was the ambitious double album, "Love Songs". Recorded over the span of thirteen days, featuring twenty-seven musicians performing live, "Love Songs" was heralded by The Guardian as, "surely one of the best albums of the year." This year, she releases her third album, "Three the Hard Way". Working with producer-engineer, Ben Kane, (D'Angelo, "Black Messiah), this time, Krystle is featured on every instrument. "It's a celebration of Black Music - gospel, blues, work song," Warren muses. "I grew up Southern Baptist, with an incredible choir at church... I began learning the language again. It's always been a part of me."

Late Show Gibbz, Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue, Cobrayama - Mercury Lounge
January 18, 2018 - New York

Gibbz In 2014, New York native, Mike Gibney, wanted to get away from his past of working for touring artists as a sound engineer and tour manager, to focus on writing and recording his own music. His debut EP "Who Gibbz a F#@$" showed that he was no longer content with being behind the scenes, but rather yearned for the spotlight. Following up with the "Chardonnay" EP, he aligned himself with other artists that began to see him more as a peer, than a hired hand. He toured extensively through the US and Europe with Gramatik, Cherub, Exmag, Ghost Beach, and the Floozies before independently releasing his first full length album, "Above Water," in 2016. Gibbz finished off 2016 with another EP titled "Oh My God," before tackling his first headlining tour that began 2017. Gibbz just wrapped up a tour supporting Saint Motel and can be found in February 2018 on the "Framily Matters" tour with R.LUM.R. Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue is a new project from Eric "Doc" Mendelsohn, formerly of Ghost Beach and TV/TV. With a funky, tongue-in-cheek vibe, the project explores themes of vice, ego and heartbreak through tragic characters who can't help but get in their own way. Cobrayama Producer Cobrayama, a former member of Exmag, has steadily been releasing a string of singles and mixtapes since his departure from the group. Last year, he partnered with Gibbz to release the collaborative EP SWIM and most recently, he's teamed up with Chicago rapper T.Z. Duhh to bring us a new song called "Orbit." - EARMILK

Mutts, The End Men, Motor Teresa - Knitting Factory
January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

Mutts rang in 2017 celebrating their inclusion on WXRT Chicago's local "Best-of" list for the 2nd time. When they made it in 2013 it was on the acclaim of their acoustic album, Object Permanence, which quickly sold out of 2 vinyl pressings. This time just two singles were strong enough: "Let's Go," which was played in Wrigley Field during the Cubs' historic World Series run, and "Neighbor," offering a message of togetherness directly after the election. On September 12 Mutts released both songs on a 5-track EP entitled "Stick Together," recorded and mixed at Audiotree Studios by Rick Fritz (The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, Regina Belle, Destiny's Child). This distinctly positive EP springs from some of the most trying times of singer/songwriter Mike Maimone's life. Leading up to the release of their 4th LP, "Fuel Yer Delusion, vol. 4" in late 2014, Maimone was kicked out of the house by his partner of 5 years. Around that time, several bands that Mutts had been friends with called it quits. The trio decided that the next record would be a complete about-face from the sardonic "Fuel v4," instead offering a sincere message of strength. After recording it, drummer Chris Pagnani had his first child and decided to leave the group. Soon after, the bar that Maimone played every week when home closed. And then the tour van died.

January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

Buddz exploded onto the scene a few years ago when critics and tastemakers alike embraced him - Spin Magazine proclaiming, "Buddz proves the pop rule: Catchiness transcends color." From Vibe Magazine to Entertainment Weekly, Collie Buddz made quite an impression with music critics. "As an artist, I want to expand musically. I'll always do Reggae. I did Reggae music because I was good at it and that's what I knew and loved growing up. But at the same time, when I put on my producer hat and I hear a riddim, it might not be in my comfort range, but whatever I hear on the track dictates what I'm going to make. I really only care about making good music. For that to happen, it can't live in a box.

Talib Kweli (Dj Set) - Brooklyn Bowl
January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. "I'm a touring artist. I'm an artist that's internationally known. I'm not just a local artist at this point in my career. I'm cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I'm trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I've done before." After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world's most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental. In 2011, Kweli founded Javotti Media, which is self-defined as "a platform for independent thinkers and doers." Kweli has set out to make Javotti Media (which released his 2011 album, Gutter Rainbows, and is named after his paternal grandmother) into a media powerhouse that releases music, films and books.

Alejandro Escovedo - City Winery
January 18, 2018 - New York

Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Alejandro Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo's first solo endeavor since 2012's highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album's songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project's producers. Escovedo and company take some mighty big swings here. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Escovedo's soulful heart and voice at its core. Recorded in April at Portland's Type Foundry studio, the project coalesced with the help of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco's famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992's acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine's Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two. "You just do your good work, and people care," Alejandro says. "I always believed, when I was a kid, that if you worked hard, you would find fulfillment. I think I got a lot of that from my father and my brothers. A working musician is all I ever wanted to be. Hard work, stay true to what you want to do, and then eventually someone would notice for that very reason."

With sold-out national tours, a social media following of more than 6.5 million, and YouTube views exceeding 100 million, Granger Smith has amassed a rabid audience, while building a truly groundbreaking career. Granger's current album, Remington, released March 2016 via Wheelhouse Records, claimed the No. 1 spot on the iTunes country album chart on release day and garnered him the No. 1 debut for first week sales via Nielson Soundscan (3/14). The album, produced by Granger Smith and Frank Rogers, features the hit single "Backroad Song," which landed the No. 1 spot at country radio (Billboard Country Airplay, Mediabase and Music Row charts). Granger also received a BMI Country Award for writing, producing, publishing (Climbing Windmills) and performing "Backroad Song." The follow up smash, "If The Boot Fits," reached the Top 5. Granger was nominated in the Best New Country Artist category for the 2017 iHeartRadio Awards taking place from the Forum in Los Angeles on March 5, 2017. Granger was also included in the 2017 crop of artists honored to perform at the CRS "New Faces" show in Nashville in February 2017. It was just announced that Granger will go on tour with Luke Bryan on the "Huntin', Fishin', And Lovin' Every Day Tour this fall. Granger's "YEE YEE NATION" headlining national tour has consistently sold out and broken attendance records and merchandise records at nearly every venue over the past two and a half years. He performs at some of the country's biggest festivals throughout the year and was recently on tour with both Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan. Granger's comical country boy alter-ego, Earl Dibbles Jr., has its own fanatical following and garnered him a weekly segment called "Dip 'Em and Pick 'Em" on CBS Sports Network's "Inside College Football," in which he has appeared for the past four seasons. Granger has even been recognized by Variety for being the brainchild behind Earl Dibbles Jr. (among other character alter-egos including Donny Cowboy and Live with Lionel) and named one of their annual and lauded "10 Comics to Watch for 2016." Accolades continue to pour in for the fast-rising star. Granger has been lauded by outlets like New York Times, Variety, Forbes, MusicRow, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Huffington Post, Taste of Country, Rare Country, among many others. He has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Today Show and Fox & Friends.

Center for Architecture Presents: Scaffolding Exibit - Center for Architecture
January 18, 2018 - Manhattan

Scaffolding curated by Greg Barton, examines the extraordinary applications of scaffolding as a kit-of-parts technology to provide novel forms of inhabitation and access. Through an installation designed by Shohei Shigematsu and OMA New York with graphic design by MTWTF, Scaffolding will disrupt the architectural space of the Center for Architecture, instilling a new appreciation of scaffolding and its transformative potential. Of particular interest to our local New York City audience, scaffolding is a flexible and accessible system hiding in plain sight. Despite its indispensable link to architecture, scaffolding is too often maligned as a necessary nuisance. The exhibition demonstrates how this simple construction technology lends itself to compelling installations, positioning it as a pragmatic tool for radical architecture and civic engagement. There are an estimated 280 miles of scaffolding occupying New York City at any given time; it is something pedestrians encounter every day. How might we begin to imagine alternative uses and appreciate it anew?

Triple X Feature - New Visit Hello Museum
January 18, 2018 - New York

For one night only, A.K. Burns and A.L. Steiner will screen Community Action Center (2010), a ribald sixty-nine-minute feature that reimagines how to represent queer erotic exchange. In the video, garden hoses burst into spray, eggs release creamy yolks, corn husks are peeled down to reveal their golden interiors, and a pizza delivery person is lured inside by a powerful witch. Proposing a DIY attitude toward pleasure, the action-packed video eschews artificial sets and lighting, commercially produced objects, and heterosexist narratives. Community Action Center invokes the tropes of porn only to upend the stable top/bottom power dynamics that can so often play out in flicks of the mainstream variety; whole bodies become erogenous zones and sites of fantasy. Burns and Steiner stipulate that Community Action Center must be viewed communally, in contrast to the way pornographic material is typically accessed today—on a laptop, phone, or private playback device. Harkening back to the adult movie theaters of a past era, the video proposes a shared erotics and locates power in watching together. Burns and Steiner have selected two short videos to be screened with Community Action Center: Kajsa Dahlberg's Female Fist (2006), a film shot with the lens cap left on the camera while Dahlberg interviewed Copenhagen's queer feminist community about the possibility of making a porn film in the lesbian activist scene there, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya's Subject-Object Proof no.3 (Nico, smelling) (2009), which explores the relationships and negotiations between artist, sitter/subject, and viewer. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Burns, Steiner, and Sepuya. A.K. Burns (b. 1975) is an interdisciplinary artist and educator residing in Brooklyn and a co-founder of W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy). Her work has been exhibited widely, including as the artist-in-residence through the New Museum Department of Education and Public Engagement's Spring R&D Season: BODY earlier this year, and in solo and two-person exhibitions at Callicoon Fine Arts, New York (2017); Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Portland, OR (2016); Participant Inc, New York (2015); Johannes Vogt Gallery, New York (2012); Tate Modern, London (2011); REDCAT, Los Angeles (2011); Taxter & Spengemann, New York (2010); Horton Gallery, Berlin (2010); Recess, New York (2010); and elsewhere. A.L. Steiner (b. 1967) is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and curator living in Brooklyn and Los Angeles; a cocurator of Ridykeulous; and a cofounder of W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy). She is MFA Faculty in Visual Arts at Bard College, Yale University, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been exhibited widely, including recent solo and two-person exhibitions at Koenig & Clinton, New York (2016); Arcadia Missa and Deborah Schamoni Galerie, London (2016); Blum & Poe, LA (2015); and the Kitchen, New York (2014).

PopGun Presents Yumi Zouma - Baby's All Right
January 19, 2018 - Brooklyn

Few artists find a committed fanbase without having ever played live, but in 2014, Yumi Zouma endeared themselves to listeners before their first band practice. Following a four-song EP that immediately caught people's attention, the act's inbox filled with requests from publicists and booking agents, long before they saw themselves as a real band. Everything they'd created had been online, passing files back and forth between Christchurch, Paris and New York. Thrust into the spotlight, their first live performances were in sold-out Australian theatres supporting Chet Faker, after which they headed back to New Zealand to open for Lorde on her post-Grammy winning homecoming tour. Buoyed by the response to EP I and much positive coverage of lead single 'The Brae', which Pitchfork described as "an effortless cascade of echoing riffs and enchanting harmonies converging into a mirage of dream-pop purity," the band released a second EP and went to work on Yoncalla – their wistful full-length debut. With Yoncalla, Yumi Zouma took their first steps towards becoming a proper band, collaborating and completing songs together on the road. The result was both cathartic and confessional, winning praise from critics for being "beautiful but curiously detached," and "pop that shimmers and grabs you when you're least expecting it to." In addition to the album's three singles, tracks 'Yesterday' and 'Text From Sweden' became fan favourites, helping the Yumis sell out shows in Tokyo, London, Paris and New York. The Yoncalla campaign saw the band tour extensively and begin to hone a live show that's become one of their vital assets. A year later, the members of Yumi Zouma settled on a plan to head home for the New Zealand summer and record their sophomore album, Willowbank, their latest offering. To complete what would become their first significant work written and recorded entirely in their home country, they rented a studio in Christchurch's semi-demolished CBD, on one of the few remaining blocks that still characterises the city from before it was destroyed by a series of earthquakes. Guitarist, keyboard player and vocalist Josh Burgess says, "it was as though there was a brief pause in all of our lives and we finally felt like a band from New Zealand. We were on home turf and creating from a place that felt fundamentally natural." That sensation was further underscored by Willowbank's recording sessions falling over the cherished holiday season, during which the Yumis were surrounded by family. Burgess credits some of the small, often mundane Kiwi traditions of the time for influencing their mindset. "New Zealand has a distinct feel from Christmas to the end of January. Things shut down. It has a calming presence, it's very peaceful." That sense of holiday can be heard on lead single 'December' where the melodies float and stir themselves into a series of swelling refrains that culminate in horns and handclaps. Similarly on 'Half Hour', a pensive ballad that's imbued with pulsing choruses that seem to signal a spiritual shift taking place in its creators. When you know it's there, the feeling of rootedness is undeniable on Willowbank. Being connected to their origins on the bottom of the earth allowed the band's members, Christie Simpson, Charlie Ryder, Josh Burgess and Sam Perry to craft another essential chapter in the Yumi Zouma storybook. Willowbank is set for launch on October 6, 2017 by the band's longtime label home Cascine, and will be complemented by a worldwide tour this fall.

"A warm, sensual and distinctive vocal sound marks Kelley Suttenfield as someone rather special in the somewhat overcrowded arena in which today's jazz singers must perform." — Bruce Crowther, Jazz "A wonderfully intimate jazz vocalist, Suttenfield brings the singer/songwriter to the cabaret breathing new life into modern chestnuts of love and longing." – Chris Spector, Midwest Record

Brazil Fest: Arthur Kampela - The Cornelia Street Cafe
January 19, 2018 - New York

Kampela's music navigates between hybridism and complexity. Traditional forms such as "Bossas-Novas" and "Sambas" receive similar compositional treatment as their more strictly "avant-garde" counterparts. His cultural heritage ranges from modernism (Webern, Stravinsky, Ferneyhough, Ligeti etc.) to Jobim, João Gilberto and Tropicalismo (a countercultural dissolution of pop music initiated by Caetano Veloso, Tom Ze etc.) Kampela's music intersects at the point where ergonomic or physical aspects and structural concerns, interact.

Each ticket includes a champagne cocktail and decadent puff pastry from Ladurée, the same french bakery that provided the pastries featured in the film! "A thoroughly modern confection, blending insouciance and sophistication, heartfelt longing and self-conscious posing with the guileless self-assurance of a great pop song." -A.O. Scott Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, Marie Antoinette is an electrifying yet intimate retelling of the turbulent life of history's favorite villainess. Kirsten Dunst portrays the ill-fated child princess who married France's young and indifferent King Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman). Feeling isolated in a royal court rife with scandal and intrigue, Marie Antoinette defied both royalty and commoners by living like a rock star, filling the void with parties, pastries, and champagne, only further sealing her fate. Dir. Sofia Coppola. 2006. 123 min. Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket for $2 off any drink at the bar following the screening.

"Part shaman, part seductress, Liza Colby was born to earn the Queen Of Rock N' Roll mantle. Her music is for sinful Saturday nights, and redemptive Sunday mornings.

Imagine Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden meets James Brown at the Apollo. Picture Tina Turner prowling the stage like Iggy Pop with vocals that conjure Aretha Franklin and Humble Pie's Steve Marriott. Hyperbolic? Nah, come to a show, and look out for The Liza Colby Sound's upcoming EP, DRAW. "When I sing, I want it to be badass, feminine, empowering, and ooze sexuality," the New York City-based artist says.

An Evening with Glen Hansard - The Town Hall
January 19, 2018 - New York

Didn't He Ramble, the second solo outing from acclaimed singer songwriter Glen Hansard, will be released September 18 via Anti- Records. The new album is his first in over three years and follows 2012's solo debut Rhythm & Repose, which Billboard hailed as "Hansard at his most engaging," while The Wall Street Journal furthered, "Hansard's distinguishing trait as a songwriter is a heavy-handed earnestness." As a special preview, the video for the album's single "Winning Streak" is premiering now as an NPR Music First Watch. Of the video, director Braden King explains, "Glen and I talked a lot about the way in which every life is a fight, a struggle. No matter who you are. No matter what you do. They're all different and they all never end. For me, the song is about that struggle we all face in our own ways and about who has your back along the way. There is no end to it. We may get momentary rests along the way but they are fleeting. We all have to get up again and get back into the ring. And you know, sometimes, those who are the hardest on us are the ones who get us through. The way this turned out, the song kind of became the spirit of this place, the blood running through all these boxers veins. And I love the way in which Glen haunts and inspires it all." Didn't He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard's, and Grammy winner and former Frames band-mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, is Hansard's most intimate and elegant record since his work in Once and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon. While the journey to finishing the record was a long one, the reward of finally arriving at the end line was well worth it. Hansard explains, "I feel I've really dug deep for these songs, and I've been chasing specific ideas asking myself 'what is it I'm trying to say with this line or idea?' One would hope that through all of this that you find your voice. And, amazingly, you might find it in the smallest gesture of a song." Glen Hansard is the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames. Whether busking the streets of Dublin, where he got his start, or headlining a gig, Hansard has garnered a reputation as an unparalleled frontman. Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress Markéta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly" off the Once soundtrack. In 2013, the Broadway adaptation, Once, The Musical, won eight Tony Awards including the top musical prize itself. As a solo artist he has sold-out shows worldwide and performed on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Show with David Letterman," "Tavis Smiley," and has been featured on the Emmy Award-winning program "CBS Sunday Morning."

The Winnie Blues - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
January 19, 2018 - New York

It could have been any other Wednesday, in any other bar in New York City, but unbeknownst to Alice Beatty and Cameron Potts, a chance encounter in a downtown Manhattan venue would lead to the formation of The Winnie Blues. Both originally from Australia, but having never crossed paths there, they met briefly at a gig at Rockwood Music Hall in 2016. They bonded over a beer and then never saw each other in New York City again. Fast forward 8 months to a local dive bar in Nashville, Tennessee and the two reunited, discussing music and shooting the shit. A plan was made to write one song together. Then another, and then another. Until finally, they needed to form a project together. The Winnie Blues draw on inspiration from some of the most influential duo's in music history. From Johnny & June, to Nick & Kylie, and Emmylou & Graham to place their unique stamp on the Americana music scene. The formula is simple yet powerful. Two voices, one microphone, one guitar.

Tower of Power - 50th Anniversary 2018 - BB King Blues Club & Grill
January 19, 2018 - New York

Tower's musical odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen "Doc" Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilio's house, Emilio's father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: "Hire that guy, he's got something." Doc and his signature baritone sax sound were now in the band, and on August 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as we know them today, began playing gigs, and soon became very well known in the area. Many other bands came out of the San Francisco Bay area in the late 60's. Bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Big Brother, Journey, Cold Blood and others all helped to define the "San Francisco Sound." Tower of Power has always claimed Oakland, California as their hometown. Playing area venues and making a name for themselves, Tower of Power's big break was just around the corner.

Bahamas - Music Hall of Williamsburg
January 19, 2018 - Brooklyn

Doors 8:00 pm Show 9:00 pm Bahamas To whom it may concern, Re: BAHAMAS EARTHTONES Earthtones is the newest and totally most best album yet from Bahamas, aka me, Afie Jurvanen. I wasn't feeling too inspired in 2016. I'd been in a seemingly unbroken cycle of recording and touring for 6 years. I know, you're saying to yourself "that's so cliche?, all musicians complain about being tired…" But wait, there's more! Not knowing exactly what type of album to make, I was feeling pretty low. But at that very moment, my longtime manager and confidante Robbie Lackritz called and said "dude, you should make an album with D'angelo's rhythm section." And just like that, the juices were flowing and the songs started coming. I wrote songs about having success, having kids, and having depression. I wrote songs about going on tour, going back in time and going in circles. I wrote songs about my other worldly wife, my jerk dad and my garbage relationship with my brother. Crazy right?! In Sept of 2016 I flew to Los Angeles and spent three days in the studio with the bass boss Pino Palladino and the titan of time keeping, Mr. James Gadson. No rehearsals, no charts, no rules. We worked fast and came away with 10 songs that sounded fresh and strange and warm and free of any genre. The results were so inspiring to me that I quickly pulled my road band (Felicity Williams, Christine Bougie, Darcy Yates, Jason Tait, Don Kerr) into a Prague studio to record a few more songs. And here's the best part…the whole thing is produced by my longtime producer and confidante Robbie Lackritz, so you know the sound is correct, totally modern and completely familiar at the same time. Whoa! I know! You're saying to yourself "wait what? The same Robbie from earlier??" Yes! It's a story about friendship come full circle, and how great it is to have someone in your life that can lift you up when you're feeling down. It's a very positive album about having a joie de vivre for the joys of life. Okay, full disclosure…there's a few slow jams too… Hope you enjoy the music as much as I enjoyed making it. Look forward to speaking with some of you soon (you know who you are.) haha Sincerely, Afie Jurvanen ps. see below for super important stats about awards, sales, streaming and all that business stuff that you probably see all the time. -Multiple Juno award nominations -Juno wins for Songwriter of the Year and Adult Alt Album of the year 2015 -A streaming juggernaut who averages over 1.6 million monthly streaming listeners, "All The Time" generated a staggering 32 million streams and counting as "Stronger Than That" cracked 9 million. – Don't even get me started on Lost in the Light….. – So far 0.00 users on Tidal. – Received an honorary high school diploma from Barrie Central Collegiate in 2016. – Successfully landed a kickflip in front of Jack Johnson, earning a "right on dude." – Afie is currently planning on winning the polaris prize in 2018 and he would appreciate it if the Juno's could change their rules about landed immigrants and just give Robbie one already. – Other cool stuff that Robbie can tell you about.

Loose Buttons, Del Water Gap, the Misters - Rough Trade NYC
January 19, 2018 - Brooklyn

Loose Buttons If Is This It and Sound of Silver were bread slices, the four guys in Loose Buttons became real people-ish in about the salami part of the equation. A troupe of native New Yorkers (well we actually feel bad lying to you, one of us is from Connecticut), the quartet were struck by the energy buzzing around The Big Apple at some point in their early adolescent years and channeled that inspiration into strumming the guitar/plucking the bass/banging the drumset…blah, blah, blah, typical band bio stuff. Either way, we've been together for a couple of years and have played around New York City and Miami a lot. Three of us went to college in Miami to pursue careers as dubstep DJs but eventually returned to our roots of indie rock and roll. So here we are. Pleasure to make your acquaintance. Our new single "Thrill" is coming out soon, we like it, Hopefully you will too. Del Water Gap The story of Del Water Gap is one rooted in the Do It Yourself mantra. From the band's humble beginnings (a teenaged S. Holden Jaffe with a laptop and a Martin D-15M in a converted storage closet), to their successful first attempt at an extended play ("Tremendous" in the words of New York City's WAWSTSF),and serendipitous development (Jaffe met his collaborators, Charles Schlinkert and William Evans, during New York's infamous Hurricane Sandy blackout), Del Water Gap has championed the opportunity to remain self sufficient in their musical pursuit. Since the release of their sophomore EP, Sleeping (Extended Play) in May of 2014, Del Water Gap has experienced a growth in local and international popularity, securing invites to play Sofar Sounds in Reykjavik Iceland, a string of showcases at CMJ 2014, Chris Douridas' renowned School Night! at Brooklyn, and Communion Records' Club Night at Rockwood Music Hall. The band has also filled support and headline spots at Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge, Highline Ballroom, and Baby's All Right. In November of 2015, Del Water Gap released their newest self-produced creation, "Cut The Rope" and it's worthy b-side "Lamplight", available on limited edition 7" vinyl and as a digital download worldwide. The group currently lives and works out of Brooklyn, NY, making a regular pilgrimage upstate to write and record in their man-cave studio. The Misters The Misters aren't your typical guitar group. The band aims to write and perform their own strain of ethereal rock music, which ensures that each song will be equally moving and moveable. Defined by no genre, the group constantly looks to expand their sound by incorporating elements of funk, R&B and jazz to their eclectic array of original music. At its core the band is driven by a raw sexual energy that can be likened to the yacht rockers of the 70s. Playing every note with precision and power, they craft that rare perfect live show that spans the spectrum of human emotion; love, laughter, life, and the feeling of being part of something bigger than yourself.

Working Women with Garrett David - Nowadays
January 19, 2018 - Ridgewood

NYC-based collective Working Women — DJ Ashlyn, DJ Voices, DJ Nina and DJ Nicely — formed last year, when its members gathered one evening to play records. They began DJing as a foursome, combining their perspectives into a single musical vision. The result is an uncanny ability to set just the right tone. Joining them tonight is Chicago DJ and producer Garrett David. Garrett is one of the founders of the Stripped & Chewed label, the head of his own imprint, Night Sea Journey, and a resident of Smart Bar's weekly party, Queen!, which just so happens to be one of the best dances we know of.

Blame Candy, Uni, Hnry Flwr - Knitting Factory
January 19, 2018 - Brooklyn

Fasten your seatbelts music fans: Blame Candy is here. The New York City-based "Big Rock" quartet is quickly becoming rock and roll's most dangerous elephant in the room. Whether they're relinquishing brain cells in East Village night clubs, dazzling concert-goers with lightning-speed instrumental virtuosity, or gyrating in flawless synchronicity, Blame Candy leaves a glittery trail of rock destruction wherever they may roam. The band's musical bedrock is built upon its dynamic and flamboyant live performance, which ringleader Chris Greatti describes as a "reckless and animalistic release of pent-up youthful energy - dressed to impress." The rambunctious opener "Sweet Tooth" muses on addiction to "rock and roll symphonies" amidst winding, neoclassical-guitar flurries, while the choreographed "Pathetic" dutifully illustrates the bands knack for earworm melodies and penchant for onstage theatrics. With influences ranging from early Van Halen and Queen to The Beatles, Frank Zappa and Radiohead, Blame Candy's sound and image are undoubtedly eccentric and eclectic, and its live show is a must-see glam rock event unlike any other. In Greatti's words, "Blame Candy's music is music for the 2020's. Modern pop is boring and the future of rock and roll is gleaming. Take my hand and join us."

Circles Around the Sun + Hola! - Brooklyn Bowl
January 19, 2018 - Brooklyn

Few albums have the creation myth of Interludes For The Dead by Neal Casal's Circles Around The Sun. The 10 instrumental jams that encompass the release were commissioned by Justin Kreutzmann, the filmmaker son of Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann, to accompany the biographical visuals he was compiling to be shown during set break at the "Fare Thee Well" concerts the living members of the Dead played in the summer of 2015. As guitarist in the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and a sometime participant in Dead bassist Phil Lesh's Phil & Friends jam sessions, Casal was a natural for the project; he, in turn, brought on Brotherhood keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Dan Horne and drummer Mark Levy. At the shows, their music was a smash sensation: deeply familiar to the reunited Deadheads in how it tonally, rhythmically and melodically mimicked the Dead's songs, yet possessing its own weirdo majesty. Some pieces were explicit in their reverence, while others applied the Dead's freewheeling modus operandi and took their own course. At more than 20 minutes, "Kasey's Bones" is most certainly one of the latter. From the opening electric-piano-plus-guitar squall/lurch, there's a Bitches Brew vibe to the proceedings. If most of the track's first 10 or so minutes clip along at a shuffling pace Deadheads will recognize (and haters will cite as primary evidence), the latter half is a unique explosion. It begins around the 10th minute, when MacDougall's switch to a spacey-sounding Juno synth serves as a prompt, and then they're off. MacDougall is on a clavinet creating stabbing funk patterns, while Casal weaves lines around him, the pair mimicking the early-'70s interplay between Jerry Garcia and his non-Dead keyboard partners, Merl Saunders and Howard Wales. Soon, though, Casal hits a turbo-charge of pure lead-guitar shredding, and the rhythm section supports him with equally intense playing that crackles continually for three or four minutes with zero let-up. When it comes out the other side, everyone takes a breath: Levy keeps a steady pocket with Horne on dubby support, while MacDougall and Casal drift slowly toward an ambient space before devolving into an electronic-music black hole. If you know the Dead's trajectory, it's a perfect distillation of the group's fusion-filled 1973-74 jams. If you don't, it's a wonderfully evocative soundtrack for posterity, as it was for five thrilling summer nights.

Kevin Kendrick is a Brooklyn-based DJ, vibraphonist, bassist, songwriter, and film and television scorer.

Alejandro Escovedo - City Winery
January 19, 2018 - New York

Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Alejandro Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo's first solo endeavor since 2012's highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album's songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project's producers. Escovedo and company take some mighty big swings here. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Escovedo's soulful heart and voice at its core. Recorded in April at Portland's Type Foundry studio, the project coalesced with the help of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco's famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992's acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine's Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two. "You just do your good work, and people care," Alejandro says. "I always believed, when I was a kid, that if you worked hard, you would find fulfillment. I think I got a lot of that from my father and my brothers. A working musician is all I ever wanted to be. Hard work, stay true to what you want to do, and then eventually someone would notice for that very reason."

The award winning comedienne's career began 20 years ago after her brother dared her to take the stage for the first time in their hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.

Before long, the single mother of one decided it was time to step out on faith and quit her job at the phone company so she could become a star. The next is history.

Gregg Bordowitz: Some Styles of Masculinity, Pt. I - New Visit Hello Museum
January 19, 2018 - New York

Three Lectures on Styles of Masculinity: 1) Rock Star Glamorous androgynous promiscuous bisexuality mixed with borough realness 2) Rabbi Erudite gourmand dark eyes peering through thick-lens eyeglasses pale skin bearded wearing satin and fur in somber colors championing the invective 3) Comedian Quick angry socially relevant humor accompanied by a gross overestimation of responsibility rendered powerless by morbid self-loathing In the premiere of this three-part performance-lecture series, titled Some Styles of Masculinity (2017) and presented as part of the exhibition "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon," Gregg Bordowitz explores tropes of masculinity that have been formative to his own coming-of-age. Each evening, Bordowitz considers a different seminal figure: the rock star, the rabbi, or the comedian. Key Yiddish words for all three are farbissener, rakhmones, and schpilkes, Some Styles of Masculinity extends Bordowitz's understanding of gender as "bound up, entangled, with ethnic, religious, and national identities as well as sexuality, race, and class."

PopGun Presents Yumi Zouma - Baby's All Right
January 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

Few artists find a committed fanbase without having ever played live, but in 2014, Yumi Zouma endeared themselves to listeners before their first band practice. Following a four-song EP that immediately caught people's attention, the act's inbox filled with requests from publicists and booking agents, long before they saw themselves as a real band. Everything they'd created had been online, passing files back and forth between Christchurch, Paris and New York. Thrust into the spotlight, their first live performances were in sold-out Australian theatres supporting Chet Faker, after which they headed back to New Zealand to open for Lorde on her post-Grammy winning homecoming tour. Buoyed by the response to EP I and much positive coverage of lead single 'The Brae', which Pitchfork described as "an effortless cascade of echoing riffs and enchanting harmonies converging into a mirage of dream-pop purity," the band released a second EP and went to work on Yoncalla – their wistful full-length debut. With Yoncalla, Yumi Zouma took their first steps towards becoming a proper band, collaborating and completing songs together on the road. The result was both cathartic and confessional, winning praise from critics for being "beautiful but curiously detached," and "pop that shimmers and grabs you when you're least expecting it to." In addition to the album's three singles, tracks 'Yesterday' and 'Text From Sweden' became fan favourites, helping the Yumis sell out shows in Tokyo, London, Paris and New York. The Yoncalla campaign saw the band tour extensively and begin to hone a live show that's become one of their vital assets. A year later, the members of Yumi Zouma settled on a plan to head home for the New Zealand summer and record their sophomore album, Willowbank, their latest offering. To complete what would become their first significant work written and recorded entirely in their home country, they rented a studio in Christchurch's semi-demolished CBD, on one of the few remaining blocks that still characterises the city from before it was destroyed by a series of earthquakes. Guitarist, keyboard player and vocalist Josh Burgess says, "it was as though there was a brief pause in all of our lives and we finally felt like a band from New Zealand. We were on home turf and creating from a place that felt fundamentally natural." That sensation was further underscored by Willowbank's recording sessions falling over the cherished holiday season, during which the Yumis were surrounded by family. Burgess credits some of the small, often mundane Kiwi traditions of the time for influencing their mindset. "New Zealand has a distinct feel from Christmas to the end of January. Things shut down. It has a calming presence, it's very peaceful." That sense of holiday can be heard on lead single 'December' where the melodies float and stir themselves into a series of swelling refrains that culminate in horns and handclaps. Similarly on 'Half Hour', a pensive ballad that's imbued with pulsing choruses that seem to signal a spiritual shift taking place in its creators. When you know it's there, the feeling of rootedness is undeniable on Willowbank. Being connected to their origins on the bottom of the earth allowed the band's members, Christie Simpson, Charlie Ryder, Josh Burgess and Sam Perry to craft another essential chapter in the Yumi Zouma storybook. Willowbank is set for launch on October 6, 2017 by the band's longtime label home Cascine, and will be complemented by a worldwide tour this fall.

Brazil Fest: Billy Newman Quintet - The Cornelia Street Cafe
January 20, 2018 - New York

Out of the meeting of the two very different urban cultures of Rio de Janeiro and Brooklyn, NY, an exciting dialogue is born. North and South American rhythms and musical forms express the pulse of the cities. Samba, Bebop, Choro, all find their place in a rich and varied musical repertoire that combines structure and arrangement with free-flowing jazz improvisation. Influences range from the swinging, cerebral tunes of Lennie Tristano from Queens , the angles of Chicagoan tenor saxophonist John Gilmore's improvisations, to the kaleidoscopic inventions of Hermeto Pascoal from Alagoas, Brazil and Choros of Pixinguinha. The Billy Newman Quintet brings together five talented musicians with an abundance of new ideas based on solid musical grounding and a fascination with the cross-cultures we live in today. Brooklyn-born guitarist/composer Billy Newman, a jazz musician has lived, studied and performed in Brazil and his passion for Brazilian music is the inspiration for this dynamic and innovative group. Billy has been the recipient of numerous composers residencies, and is the curator for Brazilian Expressions, a series that is in it's 6th year at the Cornelia Street Cafe. He has released several recordings the latest released in May is "The Solo Guitar of Billy Newman".

Science Fair How-To Family Festival - Central Library
January 20, 2018 - Jamaica

This memoir is about Bob Brody's occasional successes and frequent failures; about his often-hapless attempts to be a good son, a good husband, a good father and, yes, a good son-in-law; and about his emergence, long overdue and against all odds, from spoiled suburbanite to someone vaguely resembling a grown-up, a family man from head to toe. "Bob Brody's Playing Catch with Strangers is a gem. . . . This collection is filled with insights, wit, pithy observations, common sense and neighborly decency. This delightful and thought-provoking memoir proves that Brody has developed into a master of the short essay." —Dan Rather, former CBS News anchor "A good man, Bob Brody is also an observant one. Nothing escapes his vision. Growing up with deaf parents, he learned to listen hard to the world around him, and this poignant memoir is the result." —Phillip Lopate, author of Inside My Head and editor of The Art of the Personal Essay "In this winning memoir, Bob Brody wears his heart on both sleeves, along with a chip on both shoulders. He's every inch a diehard New Yorker, equally tender and tough. Give the guy credit: he gets stabbed five weeks after moving into the city, but sticks around for the next 41 years." —Nicholas Pileggi, author of Goodfellas

The Klezmatics - The Town Hall
January 20, 2018 - New York

Pre-performance Q&A at 7 PM with the artists moderated by folklorist Hanna Griff-Sleven, Ph.D., Director of Cultural Programs, Museum at Eldridge Street The Klezmatics will return once again to The Town Hall to perform an incredible evening of music with special guests. Since their emergence more than 25 years ago, the Grammy-winning Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music by making aesthetically, politically and musically enveloping recordings, inspiring future generations, creating a large body of work that is enduring, and helping to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a "Jewish roots band," the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. Today, there are three original members still on their board. Their music is rooted in, but is not a strictly traditional variety of, the klezmer genre - and they are, without a doubt, the most successful proponents of klezmer music in the world. The Klezmatics' music is instead, a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music and those already familiar with it.

What Is Our Deepest Desire?--2018! - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
January 20, 2018 - New York

This Dramatic Presentation features "Mind & Importance" In this exciting talk, with illustrations from Thackeray, Jane Austen, and the Duchess of Newcastle, Eli Siegel said: “If you are important because you feel that what’s real is important, that other people can be important, then your importance is good….The wrong thing about being important is that we deny importance elsewhere. We can be as important, if we want to, as the Rocky Mountains, as long as we don’t deny anybody else’s importance.” Do You Want to Manage or Be Affected? Reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson “Any pleasure we’re not proud of is that much less pleasure: Mr. Reynolds, do you want to be proud of how someone affects you?” —Eli Siegel And-- How Can We Be Composed?: Bruegel’s Hunters In the Snow By Nancy Huntting “In Bruegel’s winter scene, snow blankets everything, yet unlike the way I tried to smooth down reality, the snow intensifies the red brick of the houses and shapes of the figures, while at the same time it makes for unity and calm.”

What Makes Our Anger Right or Wrong; or What Can We Learn from the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King? - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
January 20, 2018 - New York

At school, in parks and playgrounds, on the street, even in their own home, children can be frightened and perplexed, not only about the anger they see around them, but also the anger they have. Aesthetic Realism, the education founded by the poet and critic Eli Siegel, explains this subject in a way that is tremendously kind as well as vital for everyone’s life. That is why parents will be happy to know about the Saturday, January 20th Learning to Like the World class for boys and girls ages 5-12. Boys and girls attending will begin to learn something important and new—that there are two kinds of anger--as teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy take up and illustrate these sentences by Mr. Siegel: “There is such a thing as good anger. In a good anger we are fighting for the beauty of the world….But there is also an anger which comes from thinking too much of ourselves; an anger which comes from conceit….It is hard being angry in the right way. When we are not angry in the right way, something in us knows we are wrong, and we don’t like ourselves.” Children will learn about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., including the 1963 Children’s Crusade. They’ll see how beautiful and fair the anger of Dr. King was as he fought against injustice. This is the kind of anger which is right to have because it is “fighting for the beauty of the world.” The fact that the Aesthetic Realism education successfully combats wrong and unjust anger, and enables children to become kinder and happier, is urgent and beautiful news!

Hayley Reardon - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
January 20, 2018 - New York

Noted for her thoughtful, vivid songwriting and engaging stage performance, Hayley has spent the past five years sharing the stage with acts like Tom Rush, Peter Yarrow, Buskin & Batteau, Christine Lavin, and opening for the likes of Lori McKenna, Mark Erelli, and Catie Curtis. She has been selected for official showcases at Folk Alliance International and New England Regional Folk Alliance, as well as The Boston Folk Festival, New York Songwriter's Circle, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase. In 2012, The Boston Globe Magazine named her a Bostonian of the Year for both her music and her work to pair it with a message of teen empowerment. The feature article characterized her as "a confident, radiant teenage singer/songwriter who is helping to pen the next chapter of the Boston folk scene....while Reardon is rapidly making a name for herself under the stage lights, it could be said that she's having a bigger impact on her peers across the country as an effective teen-to-teen ambassador, sought after by schools nationwide." erformer Magazine describes her music as "brilliantly moving folk/pop with a lyrical depth and soul," while American Songwriter Magazine refers to Numb and Blue, the lead single off of Wayfindings, as "a melancholy little masterpiece." In a live setting, these soulful songs are carefully intertwined between thoughtful stories and soft, clever humor to form a comforting, yet commanding, stage presence. Hayley Reardon is full of heart, and what's even better is that she has proven her ability to share that heart and make an audience feel her songs and stories just as strongly as she does.

The Klezmatics - The Town Hall

with Guest Artists Fred Hersch and Holly Near and a Special Guest Appearance by Natalie Merchant January 20, 2018 Saturday, 8 PM The Town Hall 123 W 43rd St, Manhattan $45/$50/$55/$65 Pre-performance Q&A at 7 PM with the artists moderated by folklorist Hanna Griff-Sleven, Ph.D., Director of Cultural Programs, Museum at Eldridge Street The Klezmatics will return once again to The Town Hall to perform an incredible evening of music with special guests. Since their emergence more than 25 years ago, the Grammy-winning Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music by making aesthetically, politically and musically enveloping recordings, inspiring future generations, creating a large body of work that is enduring, and helping to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. While their music is rooted in the klezmer genre, it is not a strictly traditional variety of it and they are, without a doubt, the most successful proponents of klezmer music in the world. The Klezmatics’ music is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the klezmer genre and those already familiar with it. MORE INFO: http://bit.ly/KlezmaticsTix

Damn Right Record Release Party - Nublu
January 20, 2018 - New York

Damn Right formed onstage at the legendary Baltimore venue, the 8X10 and immediately noticed a distinct improvisational chemistry. The trio (with then keyboardist Blake Mobley) spent the next few years refining their sound and making a name for themselves as a quality live act, performing all over the country with the help from occasional live and studio sit ins from improvisational wizards such as Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads), Marco Benevento, and Billy Martin (Medeski Martin & Wood) to name a few. Presently Damn Right finds themselves as a Philadelphia based live/studio production trio that is making as many waves with their studio work as their live show. And its those roots in improv and experience gained through years of touring by founding members Tommy Bradel (drummer/producer/designer) and Johnny Fissinger (bassist/producer/vocals) mixed with the production wizardry of new addition FLOTE (instrumentalist/producer) that give their song writing and production such a unique sound. While pulling little bits from pretty much any genre while keeping a constant emphasis on capturing the free flowing emotion of live instrumentation, the band is bringing a new energy to both the live and studio settings. Their new brand of nostalgia drenched electronic composition is sure to please fans from all kinds of circles. And thats exactly what Damn Right is about. Formed in 2014, American Dinosaur is an original 4 piece rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band consists of Bryant (Vocals/Bass), Johnny C. (Guitar), John W. (Guitar), and Lukas (Drums).

Phil Pickens - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
January 20, 2018 - New York

On the heels of NPR's tiny desk contest, Bob Boilen (NPR) and Rita Houston (WFUV) invited Phil Pickens and his band the Astronauts to play the legendary Hit Factory in the heart of NYC. NPR Music recalls his sound as "big-hearted" and "rootsy". There's a push-pull in everything Phil Pickens says and doesn't say, in what he sings and doesn't sing. "The words I do not say speak louder than I want them to," he sings in "Fool's Gold." Born and raised in Georgia, his crooked smile and royal blue eyes perfectly embody the double edge of kindness and menace in southern hospitality. Pickens has a bracing, expressive voice and a style that blends folk sensibilities and contemporary indie rock. His upcoming album, Cathedrals, seeks solace in loss. "Re-accounting all the landscapes, the heartaches, and places yet to go," he sings in Cathedral. To Pickens, each song is its own cathedral – a sacred place to ask questions without easy answers. In "Arizona", he tries to make sense of his father's mysterious death. In the studio, producer James Frazee (Sharon Van Etten, Anthony Da Costa, My Morning Jacket, Modern Savage) pushed him to go deeper, to face the thing he did not want to face. "We call each other out," he says. The result is a song that pulses with an urgency to understand his own true nature.

January 20, 2018 - New York

Chen Leiji, one of the world's foremost exponents of the guqin — a seven-stringed plucked zither that has been played in China for some 3,000 years — will perform a rare concert at Asia Society. With a background in both traditional Chinese and classical Western music, Chen brings a unique perspective to the music of the guqin. Since being chosen to perform at the opening of the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, Chen has become a phenomenon on the international stage, performing solo and ensemble programs across the globe. His passionate performance style breathes new life into an instrument that has was at the heart of traditional Chinese education.

He is the first guqin graduate of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, and the first student of guqin master Gong Yi. Chen Leiji also holds a graduate diploma in Orchestral Conducting from the Rheims Conservatory. His in-depth study of Chinese and Western musical traditions places him at a virtual point of confluence to establish a unity in the world even as we grow profoundly conscious of the treasures of its diversity.

"Our son was talking about Herbie Hancock, Mozart, Samba and African music – and he knew the difference!." – Harvey Keitel

Natti Vogel Presents 'Serving Body' - National Sawdust
January 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

This show ecstatically celebrates "Serving Body", the long-awaited orchestral EP by alt-pop mastermind Natti Vogel. Raved about by critics, the young piano singer-songwriter comes to National Sawdust on the day of its release, performing from the new album and also serenading you with his prolific, diverse body of work and one-of-a-kind, powerhouse stage presence. Praise for Natti Vogel Natti Vogel is a young, Brooklyn-based piano singer-songwriter who has garnered a passionate worldwide fanbase for his emotional, hilarious live shows and powerful, dynamic songwriting. PRAISE FOR 'SERVING BODY': "The ornate, intricately arranged record is a study of early adulthood…replete with? ?ironic? ?social? ?commentary? ?and? ?sexual? ?politicking" (OUT Magazine) "incredibly fun, vastly complex, undeniably sexy, incredibly rewarding, soaring" (Atwood Magazine) "true artistry, an extremely rare delicacy which proves that Natti Vogel may just be the voice we've been waiting for" (Born Music UK) PRAISE FOR NATTI VOGEL: "Indie rock fusion virtuoso" (New York Press) "an extraordinary presence with a larger-than-life personality" (OUT magazine) "Quirky, dark, sensual and theatrical with a rich, baroque voice" (MTV) "It's not hard to imagine Natti Vogel throwing your own overpriced cosmopolitan in your face from behind his piano, but it's not all Gawker set to music: behind the satire, there is a deep romantic yearning to get away from all that stuff" (A.V. Club) "The mysterious and talented Natti Vogel banters boldly and boasts outrageous style like a classic American diva but his vocals and composition soar higher than superstar pop music." (Information Magazine, Denmark) "I'm pretty amazed by how Natti Vogel can jump from one genre to the next and still sound authentic. That's a rare feat. Lady Gaga can't even do that!" -Stacy Llambe (Entertainment Tonight, OUT Magazine) ""Natti Vogel has the presence of a rising international star" – the Global Times "At his most lyrical, Natti sings with an abandon that is not a product of Bloomberg's New York, with its clean streets and bank-sponsored bicycles. It's amazing how money produces pretty art that looks like money. Natti comes from an older tradition. With him, a song is not a brand or an act, but a strong hand tugging you into the dark." Livingston Award Winner Lois Beckett for EOS

Riverside Symphony Presents: Antecedents - Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center
January 20, 2018 - New York

Antecedents SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 2018, 8pm Featuring Roni Gal-Ed, oboe TELEMANN Concerto “alla Francese” in C Major GREENBAUM The Jig is Up (US Premiere) C.P.E. BACH Berlin Symphony in E-flat major H. 654, Wq. 179 MOZART Symphony No. 29 in A major Georg Philipp Telemann’s dancing concerto grosso sets the stage for Matthew Greenbaum’s similarly light-footed concertino for oboe, a work—in both title and substance—that reveals the composer’s deep affinity for Baroque music. Correspondingly, Mozart’s glowing, shockingly mature early symphony betrays a significant debt to transitional master C.P.E. Bach—of whom the former once proclaimed: “He is the father, we are the children.” Described as an “expressive, wonderful player” (SZ Magazine, Germany); “virtuoso and elegant” (Double Reed Magazine, Germany); and “outstanding” (The New York Times) — Roni Gal-Ed is a first prize winner at the International Lauschmann Oboe Competition in Mannheim, Germany, and a recipient of scholarships from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and from the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.

As in every circle, the group will discuss the energetics of the season, experience some rooted movement and mantras, and reflect on the common threads arising for all.

"I know all about guitar players-I've seen the very best-and Scott Sharrard is the perfect guitarist for my band. He understands that you don't need to play just for the sake of playing; Scott isn't one of those guys who thinks they get paid by the note. He never steps on the vocals, and he leaves plenty of room for everyone else to do their thing, but when it's time to solo, Scott delivers, boy."

“New York’s most dependably interesting source of new music theater…This vibrant festival becomes more central to the future of opera with every passing year.” — The New York Times Convicted murderer Walker Loats is trapped in a timeless prison. Unexpectedly befriended by a moth with an offer of a perceived way to freedom, Walker must choose between paying her dues or taking a shortcut that offers to rig the game in her favor.

Featuring a live chamber ensemble, electronics, and a six-channel surround sound system, this world premiere opera explores the freewheeling nature of the mind when it is robbed of external stimuli and questions, when in extreme circumstances, is it possible to act in a way that goes against one’s nature?

Evil Nigger: a Five-Part Performance for Julius Eastman by Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste and Lamont Hamilton - ISSUE Project Room
Through January 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

Artist, designer, and composer Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste completes his ISSUE residency in collaboration with interdisciplinary artist LaMont Hamilton January 19th - 20th, 2018 at The Kitchen. The performance features the duo sequentially performing all five of their previously staged "parts" of Julius Eastman's 1979 composition "Evil Nigger" as a 24 hour interpretive cycle. The work runs continuously from Friday to Saturday, with five publicly accessible segments opening in parts throughout the 24 hours. A $5 RSVP commitment is asked to ensure seating for each public viewing. The performance is part of the 2018 Julius Eastman: That Which is Fundamental festival curated by Tiona Nekkia McClodden and Dustin Hurt, organized for The Kitchen with the Eastman Estate and Bowerbird. Public Performance Schedule: Friday, January 19th, 8pm - 9:30pm Friday, January 19th, 12am - 1:30am Saturday, January 20th, 11:30am - 1pm Saturday, January 20th, 3pm - 4:30pm Saturday, January 20th, 6:30pm - 8pm "In this final and cumulative iteration, we are concluding our investigation of Julius Eastman as an archetypal trickster, specifically within the canon of Black American cultural practice. Here, by presenting previously standalone pieces sequentially, we are able to make explicit what Eastman referred as an "organic" principle of performance, a cumulative process in which new sections of a work are overlapped with preceding sections, resulting in a dense, mounting-yet-nuanced simultaneity of expression: a pursuit through which we are able to further understand Eastman as complicating minimalist form, rather than reinforcing its emergent supremacy. Specifically, we acknowledge Eastman's own subtle contradiction in regards to the organic principle that "the information is taken out at a gradual and logical rate" to be an impetus to examine a principle which simultaneously emphasizes the preservation and accumulation as well as the frictions which might occur upon their intersection. In making explicit the sonic, gestural and material relationships within and across each of the five performances in this series, we embrace the incongruity (or infeasibility) of overlapping content without losing information." -- Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste

Comedy Classes: Comedy Writing Immersion One-Day Workshop - Gotham Comedy Club
January 20, 2018 - New York

Every comic needs strong material; it's the cornerstone of their act. What you say impacts how you perform, and what the audience will think of you. Your material literally defines you as a comedian to the audience. We need a constant supply of new material in order to keep ourselves relevant as performers. Sometimes we seem dry. The ideas don't come to us quickly, or the premises don't seem to be funny once we work them. More often than not, the problem isn't the concept; the problem is your process. COMEDY WRITING IMMERSION deconstructs your process and opens you up to other, more productive ways of finding and developing your comedy. COMEDY WRITING IMMERSION was developed by, and is taught by Jim Mendrinos, the author of the Complete Idiot's Guide to Comedy Writing (Alpha Books) and expands on the ideas he touch on in the print edition. COMEDY WRITING IMMERSION is a 1 day intensive on writing comedy. Not cookie cutter comedy with outdated formulas and tricks, but writing rich comedy that is perfectly suited to your performing needs. Mining what you find funny, and bringing that to the forefront.

Martin Swinger - The Peoples' Voice Cafe
January 20, 2018 - New York

"Martin Swinger is one of those rare singer-songwriters who excels at everything: singing, songwriting, guitar-playing, and being so present with his humor, tenderness, and wild mind that his performances are also deep conversations, soul to soul and heart to heart, about the quirks, surprises, and love that brings us most alive. His songs, ranging from the little plastic parts that hold the world together, to what enlightenment comes from Buddha and Betty Boop falling in love, are whimsically and wisely original and enduring."

The Klezmatics - The Town Hall
January 20, 2018 - New York

January 20, 2018 Saturday, 8 PM The Town Hall 123 W 43rd St, Manhattan $45/$50/$55/$65 Pre-performance Q&A at 7 PM with the artists moderated by folklorist Hanna Griff-Sleven, Ph.D., Director of Cultural Programs, Museum at Eldridge Street The Klezmatics will return once again to The Town Hall to perform an incredible evening of music with special guests. Since their emergence more than 25 years ago, the Grammy-winning Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music by making aesthetically, politically and musically enveloping recordings, inspiring future generations, creating a large body of work that is enduring, and helping to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. While their music is rooted in the klezmer genre, it is not a strictly traditional variety of it and they are, without a doubt, the most successful proponents of klezmer music in the world. The Klezmatics’ music is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the klezmer genre and those already familiar with it.

Tower of Power - 50th Anniversary 2018 - BB King Blues Club & Grill
January 20, 2018 - New York

Tower's musical odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen "Doc" Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilio's house, Emilio's father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: "Hire that guy, he's got something." Doc and his signature baritone sax sound were now in the band, and on August 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as we know them today, began playing gigs, and soon became very well known in the area. Many other bands came out of the San Francisco Bay area in the late 60's. Bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Big Brother, Journey, Cold Blood and others all helped to define the "San Francisco Sound." Tower of Power has always claimed Oakland, California as their hometown. Playing area venues and making a name for themselves, Tower of Power's big break was just around the corner.

Allah-Las - Brooklyn Steel
January 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

If you drive past the 200 block of South La Brea, there is a lamp shop, a pet shop, and a little glass door that says "Casting Agency" above it. Inside you'll find one of LA's most stereotypical rituals, where men & women from all walks of life vie for the attention and popularity of the Hollywood producer. It's a dream factory for some of them. It's also a place where Los Angeles outsiders learn what the city is really like, beyond the sun and surf and celebrities, where every brightly-lit surface eventually faces a cloud. Indeed, the lessons learned by the Allah-Las – guitarists Miles Michaud and Pedrum Siadatian, bassist Spencer Dunham, drummer Matthew Correia – since their auspicious formation in 2008 have been tempered with experience. Now, with their third album Calico Review (their first for Mexican Summer), their experience transforms once more, this time into wisdom. The band's trajectory, formed around mutual appreciation for the same kinds of music and a host of shared experiences, focuses on both the outer trappings of their home and surroundings, and the through line of darkness that suffuses life in LA county. Where the Allah-Las display their insight, and what really shines across the 12 songs that comprise Calico Review, is the way that the group has pivoted from specific influences and nods to the music they love, to crafting the feelings of freedom, grit, and melancholy in their music. That feeling – the peerless capture of music long in the tradition and mood of California pop, the sound that's captured the essence of the LA experience - aligns with their stylistic technique and their experience in the studio environment to create their strongest album to date, one which showcases their developments in songwriting and arrangements. The process began with their self-titled debut, which captured the Allah-Las' live set circa 2012 and continued onward with 2014's Worship the Sun, where they began to experiment with overdubs and writing songs individually instead of as a band. Now, Calico Review showcases a band that's grown confident in its own style to reflect the perspectives of each member, to craft an album that changes up the approach from song-to-song, while retaining their abilities as a cohesive unit. Audiences familiar with the band will recognize the levels of nuance and steadiness the Allah-Las have grown into throughout Calico Review. It's immediate, the first thing you recognize about the band in the opening moves of "Strange Heat," in the amount of control and character burning off of the band's knack for restraint. Songs like "Famous Phone Figure" cradle character sketches over delicate strains of violin, organ, and Mellotron, Correia's drumming carefully underlining a three-note theme that casts a phantom sadness over the proceedings, the group exerting a touch both light and steady enough to bring your mood to theirs. "Could Be You" works off a steady percussive gallop, guitarist Miles Michaud waxing reflexively on second chances while the band focuses on forward motion. "Roadside Memorial" applies the Bo Diddley beat to the open road, Pedrum Siadatian stepping up on vocals, and finding new ways to match his talents to propulsive musical ends. Elsewhere, "High & Dry," featuring drummer Matthew Correia on lead vocals, focuses on the Allah-Las most quintessential and peerless quality: writing emotionally resonant pop, at once direct and detached, casual and knowing, and instantly memorable. The dream factory itself gets called out in the fun, surf-stung number "200 South La Brea," its carnival-like atmosphere reflecting the excitement and anxiety of those who await their judgment. In between releases, the Allah-Las have toured around the world, and will continue that journey in support of Calico Review. The experience of traveling and idle time on tour inspired the group in different ways, and provided the pathways by which the band transports its listeners to a different place, be that wherever they are, and where the band has been. What the Allah-Las present is not necessarily crossing the L.A. River, coin in mouth, on the Riverboat Styx. It's not Raymond Chandler and it's not Raymond Carver. But the band's four members are aware of the pitfalls that stack against the idyllic notion of southern California life that forms from outside of the city. It's a siren call to the hopeful, and it's a successful town for tempering dreams into wakeful reality. Even with over 8,000 people per square mile, there is room for everyone, and then some, to be completely alone, by choice or otherwise.

Slick Rick: the Ruler - Brooklyn Bowl
January 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

A modern rap music genius, Slick Rick's legend precedes him like no others. Originally known as Doug E. Fresh's vocal partner in the Get Fresh Crew, MC Ricky D's (as he was then known) unforgettable performances on 1985's double-sided single, "The Show" b/w "La Di Da Di" brought a new kind of hip hop hero to light. Suave, debonair and capable of both great poignancy and bawdy humor, Rick's charisma wouldn't actually flourish fully until the commencement of his own solo career. Highlighted by classics like "Children's Story", "Mona Lisa" and "Hey Young World", 1988's platinum selling The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick found the U.K. Expatriate/Bronx resident displaying a remarkable talent for wit-filled narratives like some lyrical crossbreed of Bob Dylan and Richard Pryor. And his influence on a generation of rappers-from Snoop Dogg to the late Notorious B.I.G.- continues to be felt through contemporary times. Sadly, tragedy would strike before Rick could completely capitalize on the fruits of his success. A well-publicized incident that landed Rick in jail from 1990 through 1996 would form part of the subject matter of his next two releases-1990's The Ruler's Back and 1995's Behind Bars (both recorded during stints outside of prison). However now, after three years comes news from the East that will warm the hearts of rap fans worldwide: with his new album, The Art of Storytelling, hip hop's most storied storyteller, Slick Rick, makes his triumphant return. But right now Slick Rick has another problem. Slick is being detained by the INS (The Immigration and Naturalization Service) in Florida over complications stemming from his previous arrest and conviction, regardless of the fact that he has served his time assigned to him for the crime committed.

Alejandro Escovedo - City Winery
January 20, 2018 - New York

Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Alejandro Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo's first solo endeavor since 2012's highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album's songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project's producers. Escovedo and company take some mighty big swings here. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Escovedo's soulful heart and voice at its core. Recorded in April at Portland's Type Foundry studio, the project coalesced with the help of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco's famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992's acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine's Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two. "You just do your good work, and people care," Alejandro says. "I always believed, when I was a kid, that if you worked hard, you would find fulfillment. I think I got a lot of that from my father and my brothers. A working musician is all I ever wanted to be. Hard work, stay true to what you want to do, and then eventually someone would notice for that very reason."

Mo'Nique is a multi-media powerhouse whose consistent, extensive body of work has captivated audiences in stand up comedy, television, film and literature. The award winning comedienne's career began 20 years ago after her brother dared her to take the stage for the first time in their hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. She received a standing ovation which instilled the confidence that led to performances on "Showtime at the Apollo," HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," "Apollo Comedy Hour," HBO's "Snaps," BET 's "Comic View," The Montreal Comedy Festival and Uptown Comedy Club. Before long, the single mother of one decided it was time to step out on faith and quit her job at the phone company so she could become a star. The next is history. In 1999, Mo'Nique's career took a quantum leap once she landed the starring role as Nikki Parker on "The Parkers," UPN's hit television series about a single mom who attends college with her daughter. The celebrated family sitcom earned Mo'Nique several accolades, including four NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Actress in a comedy series in 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005. Mo'Nique was also the first female to host NBC's nationally televised program, "Showtime at the Apollo" in 2002. She carried the legendary torch for three consecutive seasons.

Audrey Chen Duo: Voices - Roulette
January 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

Over the past 15 years, Audrey Chen's predominant focus has been her solo work, joining together the extended and inherent vocabularies of the cello, voice and analog electronics. In the last few years, she has more recently begun to shift back towards the exploration of the voice as a primary instrument, delving even more deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling. She derives her sound material in continuous process, championing the "in-between" and over looked. Regardless of instrument, her mode of experimentation touches both the abstractly beautiful and the aggressively unsettling, creating a kind of curiously imagined architecture, non-prosaic song or ritual that reaches beyond gravity or language. Recent projects, aside from performing solo, include her long running voices duo with London-based artist Phil Minton and duos with NYC abstract turntablist, Maria Chavez, BEAM SPLITTER, with Norwegian trombonist Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø, the "romantic noise duo" AFTERBURNER with Doron Sadja (electronics/light projections), with modular synth player, Richard Scott, and a collaborative project with German conceptual artist, John Bock. Her most recent album releases include a quartet LP with Nate Wooley, C. Spencer Yeh and Todd Carter on Monotype (Warsaw) and a duo record with Phil Minton on Subrosa (Brussels). In 2017 she released albums with Richard Scott on Sound Anatomy (Berlin) and Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø on Corvo Records (Berlin). Her upcoming new solo LP will be releases on Karl Records (Berlin) in 2018. Chen has performed across Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Argentina, Canada and the USA. Since 2011, she relocated to Berlin, Germany from Baltimore, MD and continues to maintain an active international touring schedule. David Harrington of the Kronos Quartet has described her work as "fascinating and gripping" and "possessing something extremely vital and vivid."

DOMINGO QUIÑONES, one of the world’s most popular salsa stars, was born in New Jersey and moved when he was four years old to Ceiba, Puerto Rico where he grew up singing salsa, bachata, rumba and Cuban charangas. Returning to New York City as a young teenager, he began his career with Conjunto Nativo in 1981 and also sang coro with Rafael de Jesús, Jose Alberto, Johnny Rodriguez and Conjunto Clásico before becoming the lead vocalist for Luis “Perico” Ortiz’s orchestra. Going solo, he released his first album Domingo es Mi Nombre in 1990.

In the 1970’s he was a vocalist in a merengue band that he formed with his three brothers called Los Kentons, that was known for their innovative, flashy choreography. As a percussionist, Kenton worked with several orchestras including ones led by Luis “Perico” Ortiz (founder of the orchestra), Orestes Vilató “Los Kimbos”, and the late Luis Ramírez “Noche Caliente”. Beginning in the 1980’s Kenton also sang and recorded with the orchestras of Juan Valdez, Santiago Ceron, the female-fronted merengue band Millie, Jocelyn y Los Vecinos, Fausto Rey, Rubby Perez, Willie Colon, and Luis “Perico” Ortiz.

Gregg Bordowitz: Some Styles of Masculinity, Pt. I - New Visit Hello Museum
January 20, 2018 - New York

Three Lectures on Styles of Masculinity: 1) Rock Star Glamorous androgynous promiscuous bisexuality mixed with borough realness 2) Rabbi Erudite gourmand dark eyes peering through thick-lens eyeglasses pale skin bearded wearing satin and fur in somber colors championing the invective 3) Comedian Quick angry socially relevant humor accompanied by a gross overestimation of responsibility rendered powerless by morbid self-loathing In the premiere of this three-part performance-lecture series, titled Some Styles of Masculinity (2017) and presented as part of the exhibition "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon," Gregg Bordowitz explores tropes of masculinity that have been formative to his own coming-of-age. Each evening, Bordowitz considers a different seminal figure: the rock star, the rabbi, or the comedian. Key Yiddish words for all three are farbissener, rakhmones, and schpilkes, Some Styles of Masculinity extends Bordowitz's understanding of gender as "bound up, entangled, with ethnic, religious, and national identities as well as sexuality, race, and class." Tickets for this event will be made available shortly. Gregg Bordowitz (b. 1964) is an artist and writer. He is the director of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Low Residency MFA program, and he is on the faculty of the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. He has performed at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, TX (2012); Iceberg Projects, Chicago (2011); Murray Guy, New York (2011); and Temple Gallery, Philadelphia (2011), and his work has been presented at the Tate Modern, London (2011), and Tanzquartier Wien, Vienna, Austria (2010). His films have been screened in numerous museums and at festivals, and his writing has been widely published.

Cantata Profana: American Songbook II featuring John Taylor Ward - Joe's Pub at The Public
January 20, 2018 - New York

John Taylor Ward returns to the stage at Joe's Pub with pianist Daniel Schlosberg to continue their whirlwind exploration of the roots and future of American song. Joined by several special guests, Dan and Taylor will lend their panache to everything from lutesong to lounge, from hillbilly harmonies to highbrow hoedowns, and from bourbon street bands to back street boys. Cantata Profana is a fearless vocal and instrumental chamber ensemble now entering its sixth season of presenting "every kind of classical music you might imagine" (New Yorker). The ensemble is devoted to new music, old music "to most anything, so long as the mixture is put together thoughtfully and put across persuasively" (NY Times). Cantata Profana's artists combine virtuosic talent with innovative staging, lighting, and design, collaborating to present eclectic and diverse masterpieces with a theatrical flair. We transcend the typical chamber music concert with programming that pulls from every century, allowing pieces to speak to each other across time periods and continents, just as the performers speak to the audience. Each concert offers a never before imagined way of telling stories through music.

Dez Mona and Baroque Orchestration X: Sága - Joe's Pub at The Public
January 20, 2018 - New York

ága is a theatrical song cycle, which deals with "homecoming" as its main theme. The title of the work refers to the well-known epic tales composed in Iceland and Greenland sometime between the 12th and 14th centuries, and also to Sága: in Norse mythology she is the goddess of history and storytelling. Dez Mona tells stories about the soul and goes in search of their love for the land, a home, and the world in which they live. The songs emanate from the continuous search for ideal geographical and spiritual surroundings. By looking into the past, Dez Mona tries to explain the current state of affairs. But more than anything, their latest work is a poetic reflection on what is happening here and now. After its wildly successful New York debut in PROTOTYPE 2016, we have decided to bring it back for a reprise engagement. Dez Mona is one of Belgium's finest indie bands whose style fuses jazz, gospel, spirituals, and drama. For the creation of Sága, they engage in a sparkling collaboration with B.O.X. (Baroque Orchestration X), along with the outstanding vocalist Gregory Frateur. Sága was created with the support of deSingel in Antwerp, Klara festival, Opera Days Rotterdam, and with the generous support of the General Representation of the Government of Flanders.

Alejandro Escovedo w/ Chris Stamey & Millie McGuire - City Winery
Through January 20, 2018 - Manhattan

Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Alejandro Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo's first solo endeavor since 2012's highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album's songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project's producers. Escovedo and company take some mighty big swings here. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Escovedo's soulful heart and voice at its core. Recorded in April at Portland's Type Foundry studio, the project coalesced with the help of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco's famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992's acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine's Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two.

Majid Jordan - Terminal 5
January 20, 2018 - New York

For Majid Jordan, music and motion become one in the same. "A lot of the process of making music is driving to it," affirms Jordan. "There's something to be said about that movement. You don't have an end point. When we're driving around and listening to songs, we're not going somewhere per se; we're just driving." Majid continues, "Our music is definitely about being on and navigating a journey. This path leads towards love." The Toronto pair—Majid Al Maskati, 25, and Jordan Ullman, 21—have definitely made the most of their ride thus far. In 2011, the Bahrain-born Majid linked up with the Canadian Jordan, while attending the University of Toronto. Bonding over a mutual passion for music, they started recording under the name GOOD People, releasing the afterhours mixtape. Their chemistry yielded a powerful dynamic with Jordan handling instrumentation and production and Majid assuming mic duties. "We both have two younger sisters," says Majid. "In a sense, we each assume the role of the brother we never had. That's what makes this so special: the brotherhood we share." Producer Noah "40" Shebib heard their music on Soundcloud in 2013 and invited them to meet him and Drake. Soon after, the duo inked a deal with OVO Sound/Warner Bros. Records. Majid Jordan featured on and co-produced Drake's triple-platinum #1 hit "Hold On, We're Going Home" from Nothing Was The Same. Their next collaboration with the hip-hop superstar was "Mine" for Beyoncé's self-titled fifth offering. Solidifying their sound and identity, 2014's EP A Place Like This would see them construct the framework for their self-titled full-length debut, Majid Jordan, in 2016. "Once we began working on the album, we had more room for experimentation and exploration," adds Majid. "We've learned so much over the past few years, and that experience enabled us to make this music. Everything was a stepping stone to where we are now."

Cielo 15-Year Anniversary | Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez, Hector Romero, & Rissa Garcia - Cielo
January 20, 2018 - New York

Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez is an NYC-based DJ, music producer, and recording artist. Best known for his house music, hip-hop, and funk productions/edits/re-edits. Often he works with partner Louie Vega mainly as Masters At Work or Nuyorican Soul, but also using other aliases either for joint work or their own side projects. A natural progression within the Def Mix camp gave Hector Romero his most recent business opportunity as a participating partner in Satoshi Tomiie's upstart imprint SAW.RECORDINGS. Picture the summer 1983…In the Bronx, NY a block party, also known as a street jam, is in full effect. A 13 year old kid steps in front of the turntables and starts playing a combination of Latin, House and Hip Hop music. The crowd goes wild and quickly the neighborhood nicknames the young kid 'Baby Hec' Romero. As his notoriety and age grows, he finds himself playing at the premier Latin Dance Club 'La Mirage', and doing nights at the hippest street club the 'Devils Nest'. The very same club where friend Louie Vega got his start. Soon after that, "Baby Hec" Romero (a name that has taken years to shed) found himself DJ-ing at some of New York City's legendary clubs and underground spots such as Save the Robots, The Red Zone, famed Palladium, and the Roxy.

Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art - New York Historical Society
Through January 21, 2018 - Upper West Side

Ominous threats filled the years around World War II—Nazism, the escalating plight of European Jews, Fascism, Japanese militarism, and racism. Arthur Szyk, the great 20th-century activist in art, confronted the turbulent, hate-filled period with forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes' destructive and inhumane policies. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art explores the activism of the Polish-born artist through more than 40 politically incisive works that underscore Szyk's role as a kind of "one man army" fighting odious policies and protagonists and advocating civil and human rights. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts, with Irvin Ungar, project adviser. The book, Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art, is available from the NYHistory Store. Support for Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is provided by Shelley and Steven Einhorn, the David Berg Foundation, the Edward and Sandra Meyer Foundation, and Nancy and Morris W. Offit. Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Children's Shakespeare Theatre presents 'Antony and Cleopatra' - Tappan Manse Barn
Through January 27, 2018 - Tappan

At the twilight of the Republic, Marc Antony is torn between Rome and a love that he cannot deny: Cleopatra, Queen of the Egyptians. She is a living goddess to her people, and an inescapable force of nature to the men she chooses. Her moods and emotions are changeable as weather, potent as thunderstorms, and yet as beautiful as sunrise. Octavian, heir of Julius Caesar, feels that his co-ruler Marc Antony is failing the empire and commands him home to help put down a rebellion at sea. This sets off a chain of events that can only end in tragedy for the lovers, and the death of the Roman Republic. Come see the Rogues of Children's Shakespeare Theatre as they tackle this complex tapestry of history, love, and sorrow at the Tappan Manse Barn in Tappan, NY, January 19, 20, 26 & 27. For more information and tickets, please go to antonycleopatracst.brownpapertickets.com, and visit us at childrensshakespeare.org.

Winter Wonderland: George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® - Lincoln Center
Through January 27, 2018 - Bronx

It is so much a part of the holidays in New York, that it is now hard to imagine a time when George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® did not call for an annual pilgrimage to the ballet. When the ballet debuted in 1954 however, it was not an immediate success. But when a televised and narrated version in 1958 brought the magical world into people's homes all across America, a classic was born. In 1964 the ballet saw some choreographic changes, and brand new costumes and sets were commissioned from the artists Barbara Karinska and Rouben Ter-Arutunian. The modifications brought iced perfection to an already sweet work, and The Nutcracker® has remained untouched since this time, allowing multiple generations to bond over a shared experience year after year with the New York City Ballet. The exhibition Winter Wonderland: George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® charts the early years of the ballet's life from its premiere in February 1954 to the success of the remounted production in 1964. Through treasures from the archives of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division, including photographs, set models, costume designs, and original film footage, the story of the work emerges, as do the thematic qualities which make Balanchine's version of the ballet unique and so enduring: namely nostalgia, faith, love, and childhood innocence and wonder.

Through January 27, 2018 - New York

Park and presented as part of The Exponential Festival at The Tank (312 West 36th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues), January 11-27. Performances will be Thursday, January 11 at 8pm, Friday, January 12 at 4:30pm & 8pm, Saturday, January 13 at 3pm & 8pm, Monday, January 15 at 8pm, Wednesday, January 17 at 8pm, Thursday, January 18 at 8pm, Friday, January 19 at 8pm, Saturday, January 20 at 3pm & 8pm, Wednesday, January 24 at 8pm, Thursday, January 25 at 8pm, Friday, January 26 at 8pm, and Saturday, January 27 at 3pm & 8pm. Tickets ($25) are available for advance purchase at www.thetanknyc.org. The performance will run approximately 75 minutes, with no intermission. Set in Brooklyn 2017, PILLOWTALK brings to life one night in the lives of Sam and Buck, a recently married interracial couple. Through a formal exploration of theatrical naturalism and the codified gender norms of ballet's pas de deux, PILLOWTALK queers the intersections of race, gender, and class to challenge our assumptions of love and marriage. Confronting the backlash against marriage equality and #BlackLivesMatter, PILLOWTALK explores how liberation and oppression co-exist in our most intimate spaces, transforming social and cultural traditions into radical performances of change. PILLOWTALK is performed by JP Moraga (Street Children with Vertigo Theater at The New Ohio, NYTimes Critic's Pick) and Basit Shittu (Next Faggot Nation at HERE), two queer men of color, in a play written and directed by Kyoung H. Park (Artistic Director of Kyoung's Pacific Beat) with choreography by Katy Pyle (Artistic Director of Ballez), live music by Helen Yee (Miss Julia at LaMaMa), sound design by Lawrence Schober (Primary with Sanguine Theatre Company; Asking for Trouble at EST), set and lighting design by Marie Yokoyama (Three Trees with Pan Asian Rep; We in Silence Hear a Whisper with Red Fern Theatre), costume design by Andrew Jordan (Christopher Williams' Il Giardino d’Amore at Danspace Project) , and dramaturgy by Jess Applebaum (One Year Lease).

Exhibition - Museum of the Moving Image
Through January 28, 2018 - Astoria

Changing Exhibitions Gallery In 1980, $2.8 billion in quarters were pumped into video arcade games in the United States, more than triple the revenue from any previous year. The video arcade had arrived, as a popular culture phenomenon and a vital force in the entertainment industry. Improved graphics, game design, and marketing made such games as Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man into addictive and commercially successful hits. At their peak, there were more than 10,000 video arcades across the country. Within a decade, the rise of the personal computer and home consoles would mark the end of the video arcade's golden age. This arcade allows visitors to play 23 of the era's most beloved games, in their original form. Games on view include: 10 Yard Fight (1983) Arkanoid (1986) Battlezone (1980) Centipede (1980) Defender (1981) Dig Dug (1982) Donkey Kong (1981) Frogger (1981) Galaxy Force II (1988) Gauntlet (1985) Karate Champ (1984) Mortal Kombat (1992) Ms. Pac-Man (1981) NBA Jam (1993) Out Run (1986) Pole Position (1982) Q*Bert (1999) Robotron 2084 (1982) Star Wars (1983) Terminator 2 (1991) Track and Field (1983) Tron (1981) Zaxxon (1982) Tokens are required for play and may be purchased in the gallery at token machines or in the Museum store.

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.

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). Bourgeois's printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,200 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum's Marron Atrium. The artist's creative process is the organizing principle behind the exhibition. Over the course of her career, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime. Also, she said there was no "rivalry" between the mediums in which she worked, noting that "they say the same thing in different ways." Here, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings, and within thematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture, the body, and nature, as well as investigations of abstraction and works made from old garments and household fabrics. In addition, the evolving states and variants of her prints will be emphasized in order to reveal Bourgeois's creative thinking as it unfolded. Bringing together some 300 works, the exhibition celebrates the Museum's archive of Bourgeois prints as well as the completion of the online catalogue raisonné, Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints & Books, available now in process at moma.org/bourgeoisprints, and ultimately documenting over 4,600 printed sheets in all. The Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait exhibition catalogue, by Deborah Wye, is available now.

Items: Is Fashion Modern? - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi's 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology. The Items: Is Fashion Modern? exhibition catalogue, by Paola Antonelli and Michelle Millar Fisher, is available now.

The lives of two men unravel quickly over the course of 90 minutes. Where are they? Who are they? What room is this, and what might be beyond the walls? Starring Olwen Fouéré, Mikel Murfi and Tadhg Murphy WINNER – Best Production Irish Times Theatre Awards 2015 Runtime: Approx. 90 minutes with no intermission

Wiener Werkstätte 1903-1932: The Luxury of Beauty - Neue Galerie
Through January 29, 2018 - New York

On October 26, 2017, Neue Galerie New York will present a major retrospective exhibition devoted to the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops), an artists' and craftsmens' collective that existed in Vienna from 1903 until 1932. More than 400 objects have been selected for the presentation, and the loans are drawn from both public and private collections in the United States and Europe, including significant pieces from Austria. This show surveys the entirety of the firm's extensive output in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawings, fashion, furniture, glass, graphic design, jewelry, metalwork, textiles, and wallpaper. Special highlights of the show will include iconic examples of furniture by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, which will be complemented by rare and often unique works crafted in silver, gold, and semiprecious stones that convey the Wiener Werkstätte's luxurious aesthetic.

First love is a bittersweet symphony! Cruel Intentions: The Musical pulls you into the manipulative world of Manhattan's most dangerous liaisons: Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil. Seduced by revenge and fueled by passion, the two diabolically charming step-siblings place a bet on whether or not Sebastian can deflower their incoming headmaster's daughter, Annette Hargrove. As the two set out to destroy the innocent girl–and anyone who gets in their way–they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, temptation, and the cruelest game of all: love. Featuring your favorite throwback hits like "Lovefool," "Just A Girl," "Only Happy When It Rains," and "Bittersweet Symphony," NYC's most intoxicating new musical is a full-on '90s party, returning you to a time when rosaries were more than a fashion statement. Yes, it's the movie you love, set to the songs you know, performed live, with drinks…and missing out might just ruin your reputation. Happy hunting!

Crafty Tuesdays - Central Library
Through January 30, 2018 - Jamaica

This memoir is about Bob Brody's occasional successes and frequent failures; about his often-hapless attempts to be a good son, a good husband, a good father and, yes, a good son-in-law; and about his emergence, long overdue and against all odds, from spoiled suburbanite to someone vaguely resembling a grown-up, a family man from head to toe. "Bob Brody's Playing Catch with Strangers is a gem. . . . This collection is filled with insights, wit, pithy observations, common sense and neighborly decency. This delightful and thought-provoking memoir proves that Brody has developed into a master of the short essay." —Dan Rather, former CBS News anchor "A good man, Bob Brody is also an observant one. Nothing escapes his vision. Growing up with deaf parents, he learned to listen hard to the world around him, and this poignant memoir is the result." —Phillip Lopate, author of Inside My Head and editor of The Art of the Personal Essay "In this winning memoir, Bob Brody wears his heart on both sleeves, along with a chip on both shoulders. He's every inch a diehard New Yorker, equally tender and tough. Give the guy credit: he gets stabbed five weeks after moving into the city, but sticks around for the next 41 years." —Nicholas Pileggi, author of Goodfellas

Chicago - Ambassador Theater

Set in the legendary city during the roaring "jazz hot" 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma's serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie's been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she's been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma's incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie's got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…

Kinky Boots - Al Hirschfeld Theatre
Through January 30, 2018 - Manhattan

Based on a true story and the indie film of the same name, Kinky Boots follows young Brit Charlie Price, who abandons his family's shoe factory to live with his demanding girlfriend in London. After the unexpected death of his father, Charlie returns to the struggling factory and finds it's up to him to figure out a way to keep the business alive. Enter Lola, a fabulous drag queen, who gives Charlie the idea to create ladies' shoes for men. Soon, the factory is turning out "kinky boots" under the supervision of Charlie and Lola, but can this harebrained scheme actually work? And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends? CRITICS' REVIEWS Read More Sometimes audiences just wanna have fun. And you'd be a heel not to have fun at 'Kinky Boots'. One cause for celebration is the infectious Top 40-ish score by '80s pop star Cyndi Lauper. Another is Billy Porter, who portrays drag queen Lola with enough sequined swagger to make RuPaul look like a wallflower. Thanks to Porter's star-making turn, 'Kinky Boots' delivers some pumps-up kicks. Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly What we have, in 'Kinky Boots', is a well-fitted, well-staged toe-tapper in the contemporary big-Broadway idiom. It's never boring; it's never shocking; you are likely to leave entirely entertained and satisfied. Can't argue with that. Review by Christopher Bonanos from New York Magazine CAST & CREATIVE View All Cast Charlie Price Stark Sands Lola Billy Porter Nicola Shannon O'Boyle Lauren DeLaney Westfall Don Daniel Stewart Sherman George Marcus Neville Creative Music and Lyrics Cyndi Lauper Book Harvey Fierstein Director and Choreographer Jerry Mitchell Set Designer David Rockwell Costume Designer Gregg Barnes Lighting Designer Kenneth Posner Sound Designer John Shivers Orchestrations Stephen Oremus Musical Director Brian Usifer FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What Is Kinky Boots Like? Winner of six 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features the first-ever Broadway score by Grammy winner Cyndi Lauper (who became the first female solo songwriter to win a Tony) and a hilarious yet moving book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. The new musical packs a punch and provides everything audiences look for in a night at the theater: catchy songs, top-notch performances, colorful costumes, big sets, dazzling dance sequences and even a few scenes that could make you cry. Despite numbers set at a drag club, Kinky Boots is much more than a drag queen musical; it touches on the universal themes of father/son relationships and accepting others for who they really are. Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots is the epitome of a feel-good musical that inspires audiences to dance in the aisles. Is Kinky Boots Good for Kids? Kinky Boots provides a fabulous night out for adults and kids 10 and up. There is some talk about sex ("Sex Is in the Heel"), bullying and other adult themes but nothing too intense.

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade."

The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story.

The Children - New York City Theatre
Through February 04, 2018 - New York

BROADWAY PREMIERE Rising playwright Lucy Kirkwood makes her Broadway debut with The Children, a slow-burning drama that asks where our responsibility for future generations begins and where it ends. Set in a post-apocalyptic Britain, the story revolves around three old friends who must choose between action and self-preservation. Laced with black humor and moral quandaries, this three-hander leisurely unfurls its mysteries over its run time, building to a startling climax. The original West End cast - Bafta Award winner Francesca Annis, Olivier Award nominee Ron Cook and Deborah Findlay - star in this transfer, all of whom drew rapturous reviews from the UK critics. WHAT IS THE CHILDREN ABOUT? Retired nuclear engineers Hazel and Robin are living out their perfectly content married existence in a coastal cottage in England, as the world outside their windows goes to pieces due to the meltdown of a nuclear power plant nearby. Their peace is interrupted by the arrival of Rose, an old friend from over 30 years ago. It soon becomes clear that this is not a purely social visit, and that Rose has a question to make of the couple - will they help her in the clean up, and make sure there's something left for generations to come, or are they content to shirk their responsibilities?

Eddie Martinez Studio Wall - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2018 - Soho

Eddie Martinez's drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor's office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez's drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs. In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a "drawing wall," wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist's incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center's forthcoming exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, will bring the drawing wall to the museum. The artist will paper the gallery with thousands of sketches that he will change throughout the exhibition's run. In addition, several large drawings and paintings will be hung on top of these sketches allowing viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez's practice.

Raha Raissnia Alluvius - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2018 - Soho

Anticipating an audience whose reading of drawing is informed by new media, Iranian-born artist Raha Raissnia sources her densely-composed charcoal works from her films, each a document of the artist's private life. Using drawing to recreate (and at times undo) moments from everyday life, Raissnia transfers images of friends, strangers, and intimate spaces between celluloid and paper until the original forms become unrecognizable. For her exhibition at The Drawing Center, Raissnia will create a series of film performances, in which photographs of drawings and 35mm film loops are constructed in a flickering, hybrid sequence before the audience. Raissnia will also present several series of works on paper, the belabored surface of each drawing stressing the immense psychological effort that goes into forming each image.

Installation a Memory of Astoria - Museum of the Moving Image
Through February 11, 2018 - Astoria

Schlosser Media Wall, Lobby 2014. Ezra Wube (b. 1980, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, lives in Brooklyn). Animation. 1,756 frames, photographed from canvas with oil paint. 4 minutes. Ezra Wube works with video, installation, drawing, painting, and performance. Reflecting on his identity as a person of two cultures at the intersection of tradition and modern life, Wube makes work about the uncertainty of time and place and the malleability of memory. A Memory of Astoria, commissioned by the Museum of the Moving Image, is an impressionistic portrait of the blocks surrounding this building. Wube walked the neighborhood to observe the area's confluence of cultures, focusing on everyday moments, sights, and sounds. He reconstituted these experiences into a poetic visual collage, inserting himself as a silhouetted observer exploring the memories of his walks. The production of A Memory of Astoria was an intensive, months-long process, with each frame painted in sequence on top of the last. The result is striking: street scenes assemble and disassemble, leaving visible marks of the past as if time and space have melted together. Through these impressions, Wube reveals a diverse, rapidly changing neighborhood that the Museum has called home for more than 30 years. Support provided by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts

JOSEPHINE A Burlesque Cabaret Dream Play - SoHo Playhouse
Through February 11, 2018 - new york

JOSEPHINE, a burlesque cabaret dream play combines cabaret, theatre and dance to tell the story of the iconic Josephine Baker, the first African-American international superstar and one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th Century. Josephine shatters stereotypes of race, gender roles and sexuality in this intimate, charming and haunting cabaret with a twist. Born in St. Louis in 1906, Josephine Baker achieved only moderate success in the United States, but became an international superstar after moving to France in the early 20’s. She starred alongside white romantic leading men in films in the 30’s, had multiple interracial marriages and homosexual relationships, and performed in men’s clothing before the term “drag” existed in the lexicon. Her adopted country of France gave her the opportunity to live freely without the racial oppression of her home nation, though she never stopped yearning for acceptance in America.

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino ("the divine one") by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today. This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. Among the extraordinary international loans are the complete series of masterpiece drawings he created for his friend Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.

Multibowl - Museum of the Moving Image
Through February 15, 2018 - Astoria

Video Screening Amphitheater 2016. Bennett Foddy (b. 1978, Melbourne, Australia, lives in New York) and AP Thomson (b. 1989, Istanbul, Turkey, lives in Brooklyn, NY). Multibowl is a collection of fast-paced mini games sourced and sampled from more than 300 video games that were published between 1976 and 2000. Two competing players are dropped into the middle of one of these games and given very little time (usually 30 seconds or less) to accomplish a goal before progressing to the next mini game. Often these goals align with the source's original play (e.g. knockout your opponent or beat them to the finish line), but frequently they bend towards the counterintuitive and even subversive. These rapid context shifts task players with quickly understanding the controls, mechanics, and rules of each mini game, making the chaotic scramble for comprehension the core aesthetic of Multibowl. All the while, Multibowl offers a surprisingly effective way to explore some of the winding alleyways of video game history, a journey made possible by the free and open source Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) on which Multibowl is built.

San Marco Quartet - 5 Manhattan West
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

Video Installation by David Rokeby; San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed.

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 17th 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!

Roots of 'The Dinner Party': History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum
Through March 04, 2018 - Prospect Heights

Roots of "The Dinner Party": History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago's evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making, and a testament to the power of historical revisionism. Chicago's ambitious research project combatted the absence of women from mainstream historical narratives and blazed the trail for feminist art historical methodologies in an era of social change. It also validated mediums traditionally considered the domain of women and domestic labor, as the artist studied and experimented with China painting, porcelain, and needlework. The exhibition presents rarely seen test plates, research documents, ephemera, notebooks, and preparatory drawings from 1971 through 1979 alongside The Dinner Party, encouraging exploration of its formal, conceptual, and material progress.

But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd and the peculiar Mooney lurk with very different motives for their visit. Following a sell-out run at London's Royal Court Theatre and subsequent transfer to the West End, Olivier and Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (Atlantic/Broadway's The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, The Cripple of Inishmaan) returns to Atlantic with his first US premiere in 8 years! "Hangmen is a triumphant return for Martin McDonagh! The sound of a playwright's reasserting his singular voice is among the most pleasing experiences one can have in the theater, and it isn't long into Hangmen before you can practically feel the audience grinning as one. McDonagh remains in command of an irrepressible gift." – The New York Times Single tix start at $70 and are on sale NOW! Or save up to 26% by purchasing an Atlantic Passport! Already have a Passport?

Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting - MoMA PS1
Through March 11, 2018 - Long Island City

MoMA PS1 presents the first comprehensive retrospective of Carolee Schneemann, spanning the artist's prolific six-decade career. As one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century, Schneemann's pioneering investigations into subjectivity, the social construction of the female body, and the cultural biases of art history have had significant influence on subsequent generations of artists. Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting begins with rarely seen examples of the artist's early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into assemblages made in the 1960s, which integrated objects, mechanical elements, and modes of deconstruction. In the late 1960s Schneemann began positioning her own body within her work, performing the roles of "both image and image-maker." As a central protagonist of the New York downtown avant-garde community, she explored hybrid artistic forms culminating in experimental theater events. The exhibition considers Schneemann's oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

Cathy Wilkes - MoMA PS1
Through March 11, 2018 - Long Island City

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition in New York focused on Glasgow-based artist Cathy Wilkes (b. 1966), in conjunction with the inaugural Maria Lassnig Prize. Since the start of her career in the 1990s, Wilkes has created sculptural tableaux that engage with the rituals of life. Regularly employing quotidian products and residual materials drawn from her domestic life, Wilkes's installations connect the banalities of daily existence to larger archetypes of birth, marriage, child-rearing, and death. This combination of the personal and universal parallels a meditation at the heart of her work, in which Wilkes's art enacts an exercise in empathy, exposing deeply felt subjective experiences to reach beyond herself while also insisting upon the fundamentally private nature of artmaking. Wilkes is the first artist to receive the Maria Lassnig Prize, a biennial award established by the Maria Lassnig Foundation in June 2016 to honor the achievements of mid-career artists. The Maria Lassnig Prize was originally envisioned by pioneering Austrian artist Maria Lassnig before her death in 2014 at the age of 94, at height of her artistic powers. Having achieved recognition only later in life, she hoped to encourage the efforts of fellow career artists not yet familiar to the public. In 2014, MoMA PS1 presented Maria Lassnig's first comprehensive American museum survey to universal acclaim.

Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence showcases hand-drawn and engraved maps from the 18th and early 19th centuries that illuminate the tremendous changes—geographic, political, and economic—that occurred before, during, and just after the Revolutionary War.

Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library as We Are One: Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence and curated at New-York Historical by Nina Nazionale, Director of Library Operations and Curator of Printed Collections.

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In the spectacular IMAX format, the lush jungle is as beautiful as the monkeys, birds, insects and one troublesome jaguar.Variety magazine said: “While nearly all made-for-IMAX educational movies boast breathtaking visuals, this one matches its imagery with an equally memorable story.”  View the trailer at http://skfilms.ca/productions/amazon-adventure-3d/

Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition. Woman of Algiers reexamines Baya's career within Surrealist, "outsider," and North-African post-colonial art contexts.

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. Responding to the broad range of programming at Club 57, the exhibition will present their accomplishments across a range of disciplines—from film, video, performance, and theater to photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, zines, fashion design, and curating. Building on extensive research and oral history, the exhibition features many works that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art
Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, and Apple Computer. The exhibition combines artworks, design objects, and architectural proposals to trace how computers transformed aesthetics and hierarchies, revealing how these thinking machines reshaped art making, working life, and social connections.

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through April 08, 2018 - Bronx

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will place front and center Toscanini's recordings through ongoing live demonstrations and free public programs devoted to the craft of preserving and archiving the technology he helped define during his lifetime.

It presents a broad repertory of choral-orchestral works; seldom-performed works from many stylistic periods; opera-in-concert; American music theatre; and contemporary works, including commissions by the Chorale for its Lincoln Center Season.

The New York Times calls the National Chorale "one of the most firmly established professional choral groups in the country." For 50 years, the Chorale has also presented vocal music education programs for NYC public schools, developing singing participation and future audiences for choral and vocal music. National Chorale's contracts with the NYC Department of Education provide year-long artist-in-residence programs for elementary, middle and high schools throughout the city. The Chorale regularly tours New York area schools, presenting concerts and choral workshops; and will present the popular 25th annual New York City High School Choral Festival, the 8th annual Elementary School Choral Festival and 5th annual Middle School Choral Festival in April and May 2018, with 36 participating high school, elementary and middle school choirs and more than 2,700 student singers from all five Boroughs of the City.

The PPAS Choir will perform at Lincoln Center at each National Chorale performance during the 2017-2018 Season.

Praised by The New York Times as "a pure jazz spirit," Ms. Sutton and her trio give fresh jazz interpretations to the repertoire of rock icon, Sting. Other jazz performances in the Kumble season include NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron (February 24, 2018), stepping away from his trio to present an evening of solo piano, and Brooklyn's own Alicia Olatuja (March 10, 2018), who first received national recognition for her soaring solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama's second inauguration.

Sculpture in the Woods - Rockland Center for the Arts
Through April 29, 2018 - West Nyack

Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA's new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration. Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. This tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland. The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY.

New on View "Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine.

After 9/11, somber imagery emerged. While the destruction of the towers was not depicted, the anxiety and sadness engulfing the nation took form on New Yorker covers after the attacks. Over the years, the covers commemorated the loss of the towers while documenting the revitalization of the site. The exhibition runs through May 2018.

Stephen Shore - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through May 28, 2018 - New York

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist's work of the last five decades, during which he has conducted a continual, restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms. One of the most significant photographers of our time, Stephen Shore (American, b. 1947) has often been considered alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography, digital printing, and social media. The artist's first survey in New York to include his entire career, this exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore's work, and demonstrate his singular vision—defined by an interest in daily life, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches, a strong intellectual underpinning, a restrained style, sly humor, and visual casualness—and uncompromising pursuit of photography's possibilities.

The Theater at the 14th Street Y Announces 2017-2018 Season - 14th Street Y
Through May 31, 2018 - New York

The Theater at the 14th Street Y Announces 2017-2018 Season NEW YORK - The Theater at the 14th Street Y continues to honor the edgy, diverse, and rich history of innovative culture making in the East Village with their 2017-2018 Season. Each year, the company presents a provocative season of theater and dance from independent New York artists in dialogue with the residency program of LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture. The goal is to provide a big picture narrative focused on social awareness and change that transcends cultures and borders. The Theater supports the creation of new art and culture by placing artists at the heart of the 14th Street Y community, and providing the space, time, and resources needed to create new work.   "In an effort to provide an environment for free expression for our curated artists to more easily create, the 14th Street Y has changed its model to be a co-presenter of all the works in our season," said Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director of Arts + Culture, the 14th Street Y. "To make this possible, we have made our Theater even more accessible to a wider artist base, also providing Box Office, administrative, marketing, and technical support to truly put artists at the center of our community." The Theater at the 14th Street Y welcomes artists of all backgrounds, seeking to create an inclusive and open cultural experience for all.   Highlights of the season include: ?  Flux Theatre Ensemble's AM I DEAD? The Untrue Narrative of Anatomical Lewis, the Slave by Kevin R. Free ?  New Yiddish Repertory presents Awake and Sing by Clifford Odets, in the original Yiddish.  ?  Shamel Pitts and Mirelle Martins perform Black Velvet, a dance/multi-media piece developed through an art residency at São Paulo Dance Company and Escola de Dança de São Paulo in Brazil.  ?  Based on the children's book by Keren Ann Zeidel, The Invisible Book introduces audiences to invisible characters in an invisible world, whose surroundings slowly become visible through their love for each other.  ?  14th Street Y continues the ground-breaking series by LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture, which pushes the boundaries of what Jewish art can be and what Jewish texts can teach.  LABA is a program of the 14th Street Y.  Each year, LABA Fellows share works in process partnered with a teaching in the LABAlive Series. The LABA 10th Anniversary season kicks off with DRUNK, an evening of wine tasting with renowned sommeliers, revelry, and new work inspired by ancient Jewish text. "Seven years ago, I began work with the Theater at the 14th Street Y as a LABA: Laboratory for Jewish Culture fellow, with no idea that I would become the Artistic Director of Arts + Culture. When I began in this role, the different artistic programs existed in their own bubbles and had no discourse," said Ms. Muszkatblit. "Now for the first time, two separate programs, LABA and the Theater/Dance Series, are being brought together around a central theme. Through the collaboration with my Associate Artistic Director, David Stallings, we are presenting a season that merges these seemingly two separate worlds that co-existed here at the 14Y into one larger conversation -- a Talmudic kind of argument. One necessary theme, OTHER resonated in a world so divided, hostile and fragmented.  In Hebrew we say DAVKA (exactly now or in spite of), which is the moment to find the most humane, ethical, and touching examples of bridging our differences.  We are not afraid to present differences - join us in the dialogue."   $14@14Y Flex Pass  Subscribe to the 14th Street Y and save with Flex Pass.   Now, you can create your own subscription series to our season!  For the low price of $42, choose any 3 shows from our upcoming season themed, OTHER. 14streety.org/flexpass   2017-2018 Season:   Addy & Uno / Realabilities Original Concept & Book by Nava R. Stilton Ph.D. Music & Lyrics by Bonnie Gleicher August 28-September 24, 2017 Addy & Uno is a new puppet musical about kids with disabilities. Told through unforgettable music, humor, and heart, this show celebrates the wondrous abilities within disability, empathy, and the understanding that it's "nice to be nice."   Committed / Altruistic Theater Company Written by Natalie Menna and directed by Brock Hill August 28-September 24, 2017 Committed examines the final days of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gough's life before his murder. The play explores the collision of an artist's unyielding vision with modern political realities and the inevitable tragedy when uncompromising values clash.   The Curly Monologues / Jonathan Pillot and Project Curly September 25-28, 2017 What happens when you get twelve women, girls, and even some guys performing original Monologues that speak to the essence of who they are? This show is about way more than hair, or even the Tribe of Curls.   AM I DEAD? The Untrue Narrative of Anatomical Lewis, the Slave / A Flux Theatre Ensemble Written by Kevin R. Free and directed by Heather Cohn October 6-22, 2017 In the 1830s, the University of Virginia owned a slave called "Anatomical Lewis" who was tasked with the maintenance of its students' dissection chamber. Now, four strangers find themselves trapped forever in the purgatory of Lewis' anatomical theater - unless they can find a way to reassemble his body.   House on Poe Street / Yonder Window Theatre Company Written by Fengar Gael and directed by Katie McHugh October 27 - November 12, 2017 Two sisters inherit the house where Edgar Allen Poe penned The Raven, only to find it haunted. This play shows how the power of poetry can affect emotions and visions of a spectral afterlife.   DRUNK / LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture November 18, 2017 The 2017-18 LABA fellows kick off the season with an evening of wine, revelry and new work inspired by ancient Jewish text on the theme, WAR + PEACE.   Awake and Sing / New Yiddish Repertory Written by Clifford Odets and directed by Johanna Gruenhut November 20 - December 24, 2017 New Yiddish Rep brings an American Classic to new life in Yiddish. In this play, Clifford Odets claimed that he was writing not about individuals so much as about a whole social class being sundered by economic problems beyond their control. One solution he offers is particularly chilling and ironic.   Black Velvet / Shamel Pitts, Mirelle Martins and Lucca del Carlo January 8-14, 2018 Black Velvet is a 45-minute dance/multi-media piece performed by Shamel Pitts and Mirelle Martins, developed through an art residency at São Paulo Dance Company and Escola de Dança de São Paulo in Brazil.   LABAlive I January 18, 2018 First in the new work series by 2017-2018 fellows as they present their work in progress on the theme, WAR + PEACE.   Y Cabaret / Bearded Ladies Productions January 19-21, 2018 Get up close and personal with some of the hottest new choreographers in town.

January 22-February 11, 2018 An invisible boy and an invisible girl wander through an invisible town - but in this invisible world, there is no sound. Then one day, a sound begins: a beating, a drumming, a thumping calling out to the invisible friends. The audience is led into a parallel world of sound and visual poetry.   Everything you have is yours? / LABA 2nd Stage By Hadar Ahuvia with Mor Mendell and multimedia by Gil Sperling.

Compass Song - Times Square
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Times Square, as if the city itself is singing to you. Compass Song is centered at Duffy Square, with sounds spread between 49th Street to the north, 42nd Street to the south, 8th Avenue to the west, and 6th Avenue to the east. Let the map guide you within the active soundscape to seek out more of the audio experience, or wander through the district using only the app’s compass to happen upon divergent sonic elements. For more information on the project, please visit CompassSong.com

Sacred Spaces: The Road To … and the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room - Rubin Museum of Art
Through October 15, 2018 - Chelsea

Featuring artist Ghiora Aharoni’s series “The Road to Sanchi” and two video works by artist Arthur Liou, the exhibition engages time as a medium and challenges viewers to consider the sacred and think about their own experiences with meaningful journeys. These installations continue the exhibition’s focus on devotional activities in awe-inspiring places.

Aharoni’s series of sculptures reimagines vintage taxi meters, now obsolete, from India. Video screens embedded in the meters capture the artist’s rickshaw rides in India to sacred sites for Hindus, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists. Each sculpture, whose form simultaneously references a time capsule and the silhouette of a stupa, becomes the oculus of a pilgrimage. 

The videos “Kora” and “Saga Dawa,” created by Arthur Liou, explore aspects of Tibetan Buddhist ritual and celebration as they take place in the breathtaking environment around Tibet’s holiest mountain, Mount Kailash.

Visitors can take a pause inside the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, an immersive installation inspired by traditional Tibetan household shrines. They are also invited to write letters to future museumgoers in a dedicated area in the gallery.

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building.

York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence

All works are drawn from MoMA's collection, and includes examples by Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Maria Lassnig, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O'Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, and many others.

Through December 31, 2018 - Astoria

The core exhibition of the Museum, a one-of-a-kind experience that immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting, and presenting films, television shows, and digital entertainment. Occupying 15,000 square feet of the Museum's second and third floors, the exhibition reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. Behind the Screen also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production. Children under the age of fourteen must be accompanied by an adult of eighteen years or older. Artifacts: The exhibition incorporates approximately 1,400 artifacts from the Museum's collection of the material culture of the moving image. These include historic film and television cameras, projectors, television sets, sound recording equipment, costumes, set design sketches and models, make-up, fan magazines, posters, and an outstanding collection of licensed merchandise?dolls, toys, board games, lunch boxes, and more. The Museum has also been a pioneer in collecting video arcade and console games, which are on exhibit and available for play by visitors. Recently acquired objects on view include makeup used on the stars of Sex in the City, a mechanical prop designed by Mike Marino for a climactic scene in Black Swan, and molds and prototypes produced during the creation of a King Kong action figure. Computer-based interactive experiences: Visitors may record their own movements as a sequence of still photographs that can be printed out and made into a flipbook; create their own stop-motion animations, which they can save and email; record their voices over dialogue from a film, following the same procedure that actors use when dubbing their lines in post-production; choose sound effects to add to the images of well-known movies and television shows; add music to scenes from movies, and to experience how music affects mood and tone. Audio-visual material: Behind the Screen includes nearly four hours of audio-visual material that ranges from film clips related to the artifacts on display; projections of the earliest kinetoscope films, The Great Train Robbery, and selections from The Jazz Singer and Nanook of the North, all of which bring key moments in film history vividly to life; special videos, including The First Movies about Etienne Jules Marey and Chuck Workman's Precious Images; and a simulation of a live TV control room, taking visitors inside the room where director Bill Webb called the shots for the broadcast of a game between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres. Commissioned artworks: Artworks created especially for incorporation into Behind the Screen are Tut's Fever by Red Grooms and Lysiane Luong, a real movie theater equipped for video that seats thirty-five; TV Lounge by Jim Isermann, an environment resembling a 1960s living room; and Feral Fount by Gregory Barsamian, a stroboscopic zoetrope using 97 sculptures rotating on an armature to create a short animation.

Inside You - American Musuem of Natural History
Through June 16, 2019 - New York

Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That's more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum's popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us. Engaging graphics detail how microbes aid digestion, influence your immune system, and help fight harmful microbes. You'll find out how we acquire our microbiome and how it is shaped by the foods we eat and the environment we live in. Inside You is co-curated by Susan Perkins and Rob DeSalle, curators in the Museum's Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics. Inside You is proudly supported by the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of the Arthur Ross Foundation.

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.

Haruki Murakami's Sleep - BAM Fisher
Through December 02, 2020 - Fort Greene

THEATER Adapted by Naomi Iizuka Directed and devised by Rachel Dickstein and Ripe Time Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival "This is my 17th straight day without sleep." A Japanese housewife's mundane existence of chores and grocery shopping explodes when a haunting dream leads her to cast sleep aside, releasing her into a world of danger and the thrill of the unknown. Based on the 1994 short story by the beloved Japanese author Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle), this hypnotic physical theater piece by Brooklyn-based, Obie Award-winning company Ripe Time follows one woman beyond the bounds of society. Led by a powerhouse female creative team—including director Rachel Dickstein and playwright Naomi Iizuka—and featuring an original score performed live by NewBorn Trio, this playful and eerie journey takes audiences through a wakeful realm where bodies float, ghosts lurk, and daylight rules no longer apply.

Dear Evan Hansen - Music Box Theatre
Through December 31, 2020 -

DEAR EVAN HANSEN MUSICAL PRODUCTION REVIEW Dear Evan Hansen has surpassed Josh Groban as Broadway’s biggest new hit. With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board. Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world. The gripping effects of the story and the raw show of emotions make this story one of the most amazing productions to ever grace Broadway. Parents can gain more insight and understanding into their children. Children can watch and learn how challenging it is for their parents to understand them at times. Grandparents, well, they will get to view this communications conundrum from all angles and certainly gain a good chuckle along the way. This record-setting, sold-out musical has been attracting positive reviews from leading names in the industry and beyond. Peter Marks of the Washington post calls it ‘’A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.’’ He believes that this musical, which was first performed on November 14, 2016, holds the ace in every range. On the other hand, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times proclaims “This is a superb musical with great heart and humor.’’ When you leave a musical with one or two great songs running through your head, it can be said to be a success. However, leaving a musical with about 10 great songs running through your head is pretty much unheard of. The power of Dear Evan Hansen has set a new height that may not be surpassed by any production for many years. This is a performance that anyone serious about the arts absolutely must see and a performance certain to draw in permanently that first time attendee to a Broadway performance.

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.
