Beyond #CLOSErikers: Why Reforming Probation & Parole Is Necessary, Too - Columbia University School-Social Work
March 07, 2018 - New York

Rikers Island, New York City's main jail complex, has a reputation for abuse and neglect of inmates. Last year, New York City Mayor De Blasio announced his intention to close the complex, but according to Vincent Schiraldi, a former top corrections official in New York and Washington, the mayor's plan is being undermined by our out-of-date and under-funded parole and probation system. While the overall prison population has been shrinking throughout New York State, prison admissions for parole violations has been growing. Inmates are often sent back to jail for technical violations of their parole, such as missing curfew or a meeting with a parole officer—a trend that has been replicated at the national level as well. Nearly 5 million people are under supervision in the United States parole and probation system, more than double the number who are incarcerated in prisons and jails. At this event, Mr. Schiraldi will discuss his recommendations for limiting the impact of state parole violations on prison and jail populations, both in New York and across the nation. He will make the argument for shifting the focus of parole from punishment to incentives that help parolees reintegrate into society.

The Missing Product Manager: Product Management in NYC Government - Civic Hall
March 07, 2018 - New York

Join NYC Planning as we explore the role of product management in building sustainable, impactful digital products within government. New York City government continues to invest in in-house talent to develop software. These teams work on diverse projects that power agency work and act as the digital front door to many government services. But these development teams function largely within legacy IT departments and are restricted by agency and division boundaries that get in the way of building good software products. Product managers are uniquely suited to bridging the boundaries but are missing from most digital projects in City government. We think that should change.

Dori Freeman - City Winery
March 07, 2018 - New York

"The purity of Dori Freeman's voice and the directness of her songwriting reflect not only her Appalachian hometown — Galax, Va. — but also a determined classicism, a rejection of the ways modern country punches itself up for radio and arenas." – Jon Pareles, The New York Times "A strong contender for Americana debut of the year" —Rolling Stone Country Dori Freeman grew up in a family of bluegrass musicians, raised on a diet of Doc Watson and the Louvin Brothers. But by driving age, she'd cruise around her hometown of Galax, Virginia (pop: 7,042), windows down, breeze riffling her cropped strawberry-blonde hair, and harmonize with the pop melodies of singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson playing on her CD player. "I always thought that our voices sounded nice together," Freeman says in a rough-edged, Appalachian twang. The feeling stuck with her, and at one point, Freeman did something odd for a 22-year-old single mom working at the family's frame shop: she recorded a video of herself playing Thompson's "Everybody Move It" and sent it to him via Facebook, with a note saying how much she liked to sing with him. Three days later, he wrote back. Two years after that, The New York Times named Freeman's self-titled debut—an honest and achingly beautiful collection of folk and country songs produced by Thompson and recorded in three days—one of the best albums of 2016. "The purity of Dori Freeman's voice and the directness of her songwriting reflect not only her Appalachian hometown," wrote the Times' Jon Pareles in his initial review, "but also a determined classicism, a rejection of the ways modern country punches itself up for radio and arenas."

Bruno Major - Rough Trade NYC
March 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

There's nothing like a deadline to focus the mind. Last year, Bruno Major set himself a task: to record and release one song a month for 12 months. Four weeks to take a song from an idea in his head to a finished product and have it out there for people to listen to and enjoy, every month, for a year. People had made albums in less time, he reasoned, how hard could it be? "When I first said that I was going to do it most people said, 'Nice one…that's never going to happen.'" Major recalls with a laugh. "A lot of people thought it was overly aspirational: it probably was." What's impressive is not so much that he managed to pull it off, more that the challenge produced such a remarkable collection of songs. That within the time frame of a month, Major could produce such fully-realised, beautiful and inventive songs and then repeat the trick the following month, twelve times over. "With a traditional album, there exists the concept of an album track...I haven't had that luxury because once a month I have to release a song and every song has to be a single. There's no room for a piano interlude. Each one had to be something that I could stand behind and say: 'Hey, this is my next single, it's coming out, I've worked on it all month, I hope you like it.' It forced me to make sure the standard was at a certain level." Not only did every song hit its mark, but listening to the fruits of Major's labour in the order he created them, you're given an experience that doesn't really have a precedent in music. Tracing a line from the blissful future soul and skittering beats of Wouldn't Mean A Thing through Home's delicate folk to Cold Blood's pulsating electronica, you're treated to a dozen snapshots of an artist at a specific moment in time. You can hear him grow, develop and move through the different emotional states of a year in a way that a traditional album simply wouldn't be able to offer. You can hear how he moved from the minimalism and sub bass warmth of There's Little Left to the jazz-flecked finger picking and layered harmonies of Second Time in just a few weeks and how the latter's dreamlike infatuation slowly faded into the bittersweet kiss-off of Fair-Weather Friend like the changing of the seasons. "Albums are generally recorded within a smaller time frame and that helps lend them an identity as a whole and gives the tracks a feeling that they're siblings sonically," Major notes. "The big challenge for me has been to make sure there's a link through all of these songs because I've changed as a musician over the year. Listening to 'Wouldn't Mean A Thing' now, I think the sound I have developed with my co producer Phairo has become more developed. If I were to redo the whole thing now, there are elements of every song I would change, but that's part of the charm of them. I like that there's a little journey."

I Viaggi di Caravaggio - The Fabbri Library
March 07, 2018 - New York

Jessica Gould, soprano & Diego Cantalupi, theorbo Music of Ferrari, Kapsberger, Laurencini, Merula, Rigatti, Sances, and others A revolutionary and and confrontational painter whose canvasses absorbed the naturalism and discoveries of the ways of light made by his scientist contemporaries, Caravaggio chose as his models for various female saints, sundry “fallen women” – prostitutes who were lovers not only of the artist, but of various cardinals as well. The paintings offer a perspective on the complicated life of the artist, his time, and the thin line that separates sacred from profane passion in the baroque aesthetic. Like the paintings, the musical works were composed with a masterful chiaroscuro in which sacred scenes are rendered with intense changes of vocal color between light and dark. Please join us for this CD release concert honoring this subversive genius and the music of his time. For more information about the recording, please click here. The concert will take place in the 17th-century Fabbri Library, built in 1607 and brought to the United States during World War I.

Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair… and what it means to live in America.

March 07, 2018 - New York

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

This album is decidedly darker than his debut, both in tone and in subject matter, as Tobias makes use of a tonal palette more familiar to brooding alternative and popular music: lumbering straight 8th grooves, synthesizers, effects pedals, Rhodes and electric bass all coalesce underneath Tobias's melodic modern jazz sensibility to form a single sound that is all at once engaging, grating and cathartic.

Samantha Fish - Highline Ballroom
March 07, 2018 - New York

Whether one leans towards the blues, opts for Americana or ignites some special fervour by playing with a garage band, there's a common bond that suggests a reverence for the roots. Looking back towards an earlier template -- no matter what the genre -- proves the point that appreciating what came before can be a stepping stone for what comes next. Samantha Fish knows that all too well, and it's been evidenced in the music she's made her entire career. While she's well known as a purveyor of blues, having been lauded by such legends as Buddy Guy, the Royal Southern Brotherhood and Luther Dickinson, her real love is simply raw, scrappy rock and roll. "I grew up on it," she insists. "Working with Luther on my last album further instilled that spirit in me. It made me realize just how much that basic, unfettered sound means to me, and how well it ties into soul music, R&B, country and so many other forms of music that are essential even today."

The Whole Poem with Neil Shepard - Poets House
March 07, 2018 - New York

From first draft to final draft, we require strategies for seeing the whole poem, both its full potential for content and its most satisfying form. We require, as Charles Olson said, the intense perception of the first draft—to "see" not only the spark but all of the light that makes a poem glow. Then we need to "re-see" the poem, practicing the kind of deep revision that leads us to reconsider everything from word choice and vivid image to metaphoric subtext, grammatical pattern, and inner music of the poem. We'll use poems from such poets as Anne Carson, C. D. Wright, Yusuf Komunyakaa, Sharon Olds, Marilyn Nelson, Mark Doty, Rigoberto González, Ada Limón, Tyehimba Jess, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Arthur Sze, Reginald Shepherd, Tony Hoagland, Jane Hirshfield, Khaled Mattawa, and Naomi Shihab Nye to examine specific technical issues, but we'll use your own poems as the focus and force of workshop discussion. In addition, we'll consider writing exercises that might steer you toward new strategies and discoveries in making a poem.

Jonathan Wilson - Music Hall of Williamsburg
March 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

“Jonathan's talent - "mastery" may be more apt - places him among a rarefied class of musical auteur. You'd be hard pressed to find a comparison, or contemporary for that matter, that would do his recent work justice.” - Josh Tillman “To say Jonathan Wilson plays many instruments well would be an understatement. He plays with a rare combination of extreme technical prowess and elusive soul. Maybe it’s his southern roots honed through many years as a session player and producer in LA or just some happy accident of nature but in any event it is a fantastic thing to witness. As a songwriter he is always exploring and pushing the limits while managing to remain a sturdy link to many of the most sacred elements that made the psychedelic rock n roll of the 60's and 70's so magical to begin with.” - Conor Oberst “Jonathan Wilson’s new record brings together as much a poet as a man adept in the art of production. The result is yet another unplaceable album of sparkling timelessness.” - Laura Marling Jonathan Wilson had a busy 2017, producing Father John Misty's grammy nominated Pure Comedy and touring arenas around the globe as a guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters (for whom he also contributed to the lauded Is This The Life We Really Want? album.) Wilson also saw widespread acclaim heaped on Karen Elson’s sophomore LP Double Roses, which he recorded with her in Los Angeles in 2016.

The Iran Protests: Aftermath and Impact - Asia Society and Museum
March 07, 2018 - New York

Iranians recently took to the streets to protest economic conditions in Mashhad, Iran's second largest city and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei's city of birth. The rare protests would eventually spread to several cities across Iran, and grievances would also be directed at the political establishment, as well as the country's involvement in Syria and elsewhere in the region. Yet, unlike the mass protests following the 2009 elections, the urban middle class in Tehran by and large stayed home, and the country's political system appears to be safely intact for the time being. What was different this time? How deeply felt are the concerns? What is the appropriate response from the U.S.? Join us for a discussion with Trita Parsi on Iran at this crucial juncture.

The High Kings - City Winery
March 07, 2018 - New York

Ten years ago, four Irish singers, performers and songwriters decided to take a calculated risk. The constituent parts of The High Kings – Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey and Darren Holden – each had a wealth of history in the music business behind them, but knew that in order to maintain any level of creative interest they would have to boldly go where no other Irish ballad group had gone before. In truth, back in the mid-late Noughties, Ireland needed a group like The High Kings. The heyday of ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners was a distant memory for generations of music fans, and to have another bunch of Irish lads taking up the baton and continuing the tradition was great news to thousands of fans worldwide. "We could sing well, play our instruments well and harmonise well," says Darren Holden, humbly underselling somewhat the numerous skill sets of the individual members. "People were looking for guys with character, presence – not just cardboard cut-outs – so the respective experience we all had wasn't just helpful but essential. The four members immediately knew that something special was taking place ("we knew within the space of a few songs that there was magic"), and within months had clicked as a creative unit as well as friends The self-titled debut album, released in 2008, reached a highly impressive number two on Billboard Magazine's World Music chart. It was during The High Kings second tour of the US in 2011, however – having graduated from playing small venues to larger halls as they promoted their follow-up album, 'Memory Lane', which also crashed into Billboard's World Music chart – that everyone involved realised the fanbase was growing into something that no one had predicted. Subsequently, the group's tour of Ireland sold out within hours. "We didn't expect that," admits Darren, "and then about three gigs into that tour we realised we had touched not only a nerve but also a memory. People loved what we were doing, and they would tell us after the shows that what we did and how we were doing it meant so much to them – they had waited years for a group like us."

Jovan Alexandre - After-hours Jam Session - Smalls Live
March 07, 2018 - New York City

Jovan Alexandre, originally from Wallingford, CT is a tenor saxophonist known for the brightness of his tone and the elegant bearing of his compositions. He may be situated, broadly speaking, within the penumbra of hard-bop and post-bop styles elaborated and taught in Alexandre's native New England by the iconic Jackie McLean [1931-2006] during his later, seminal years as a Connecticut resident and educator. Alexandre has been a soloist on recordings for drummers Ralph Peterson (Outer Reaches [2010]) and Winard Harper (Coexist, sharing the tenor spotlight with Frank Wess [2012]), Kahlil Kwame Bell (Flight [2013]), and for the South African jazz singer Nonhlanhla Kheswa (Meadowlands, Stolen Jazz [2013]). Alexandre's first album as a leader, Collective Consciousness, will be released worldwide on February 24, 2015.

Lisa LeBlanc - Mercury Lounge
March 07, 2018 - New York

With the release of her platinum-selling debut record in 2012 (released in Europe in 2013), and a relentless tour throughout Canada, France, Belgium and Switzerland, singer-songwritter Lisa LeBlanc had a brilliant launch to her career. Her irresistible charm lies in her unique self-described "folk-trash" style, and her upcoming mini-album Highways, Heartaches and Time Well Wasted is proof of her amazing creativity. Available on November 4th, 2014 via Bonsound, the opus is composed of five original tracks and a cover (arranged by Lisa) of the traditional folk song Katie Cruel, popularized by singer Karen Dalton. Craving adventure, Lisa LeBlanc hit the road in 2013 and followed the path of the Beat Generation across Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Austin and San Francisco. It was during this trip that she found the inspiration for the music on this record. Recorded on the fly in Charlo, New-Brunswick with her loyal musicians Maxime Gosselin (drums) and Jean-Philippe Hébert (guitar), Highways, Heartaches and Time Well Wasted is infused with the spirit of the Maritimes. Brad Barr, Émilie Bernard, Pierre-Guy Blanchard and François-Régis Pagé also participated in the recording of this EP, mixed by Pierre Girard and Joseph Donovan. The young and talented producer Emmanuel Ethier brought an unexpected creative force out of the 23-year-old Acadian by encouraging her to leave her comfort zone. The result of these spontaneous sessions is an Americana sound that perfectly suits the grounded and warm personality of Lisa LeBlanc.

¡Mayday! - Mercury Lounge
March 07, 2018 - New York

They've performed with Lil Wayne, collaborated with Cee Lo Green and toured extensively with labelmate Tech N9ne. No matter whom they work with or who hears their music, ¡Mayday! quickly impresses whoever hears its diverse music and sees its riveting live show. So when it came time for Wrekonize (rapper), Bernz (rapper) and company to name its second Strange Music album, the group felt Believers best represented its progression for two reasons. "When it comes to our sound, we have a lot of different things in it so a lot of times it's hard to define, but the one common thread is that as soon as people hear it, they become Believers and it's something that resonates with them," Bernz says. "On a more esoteric level, we chose the title because we believe and the people we roll with believe that you ask the universe for things and you get them in return. You have to believe in what you want and believe it to achieve it." To this end, the Miami-based crew jumpstarts Believers with the energetic tag-team raps of Bernz and Wrekonize on the driving title track before delivering a rousing reggae-tinged declaration of their potency on "Shots Fired." "We try to start our albums with a bang," Bernz says. "It's our time to become the group that everybody wants us to be. 'Shots Fired' is us claiming our spot. We feel like we put out great music and that our sound could appeal to a lot of people." ¡Mayday! takes a more introspective stance on "Unplug." On this collaboration with Kardinal Offishall, Bernz and Wrekonize examine the ways our lives are affected by how we connect to people and to technology.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
March 07, 2018 - New York

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 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!

Weird Wednesday: Bulletproof (1988) - Alamo Drafthouse Cinema
March 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

When the Thunderblast super-tank, a top-secret weapon prototype, is stolen by terrorists and hidden in Mexico, the government calls on unstoppable supercop Frank McBain (Gary Busey) to retrieve it. McBain, nicknamed "Bulletproof" after surviving multiple gunshot wounds that might have killed lesser men, teams up with his girlfriend (the late Darlanne Fluegel) and a team of military specialists, only to discover that a multinational force of guerillas (a Reagan-era rogues gallery of Mexicans, Cubans, Libyans, Nicaraguans and Soviets) is protecting the Thunderblast, and that evil commander Kartiff (Henry Silva) is hell-bent on using it to destroy the United States of Freedom. Not on McBain's watch, butthorn!If your suspension of disbelief is strong enough to buy a mid-40s, slightly portly Gary Busey as an unstoppable supercop action hero, then 1988's BULLETPROOF is your new best friend. Busey is in top form as the prototypical wise-cracking 80s action movie hero, and the film assembles a who's-who of action and exploitation royalty to back him up: There's Silva himself, Peckinpah veterans L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong and Luke Askew, muscleman William Smith (as a Russian military commander, meaning that BULLETPROOF takes place within the same cinematic universe as Red Dawn), blaxploitation regular Thalmus Rasulala, and cameos by both Danny Trejo and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa. Co-written by Fred Olen Ray, with amazing practical action and brisk direction by Corman vet Steve Carver (Big Bad Mama, Lone Wolf McQuade, An Eye for an Eye), BULLETPROOF is a perfect storm of everything that made 80s action filmmaking terrible and wonderful at the same time.

Ezra Furman - The Bowery Ballroom
March 07, 2018 - New York

Transangelic Exodus, Ezra Furman's second album for Bella Union, is a new landmark for the American singer-songwriter: "not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir," according to its author. "A personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga." The music is as much of an intense, dramatic event, full of brilliant hooks, with an equally evolved approach to recorded sound to match Furman's narrative vision. In honour of this shift, his backing band has been newly christened: The Boy-Friends are dead, long live The Visions. In other words, the man who embodies the title of his last album Perpetual Motion People is still on the move... Or in the vernacular of the new album, on the run. "The narrative thread," Furman declares, "is I'm in love with an angel, and a government is after us, and we have to leave home because angels are illegal, as is harbouring angels. The term 'transangelic' refers to the fact people become angels because they grow wings. The have an operation, and they're transformed. And it causes panic because some people think it's contagious, or it should just be outlawed. "The album still works without the back story, though," he vouches. "What's essential is the mood - paranoid, authoritarian, the way certain people are stigmatised. It's a theme in American life right now, and other so-called democracies."

March 07, 2018 - New York

The original architects of the thrash metal scene, EXODUS has battled every kind of adversity over the past 30 years and used it all as fuel to stoke their ever-raging fire. Short-lived trends, line-up shifts, label conflicts, even the death of founding vocalist Paul Baloff couldn't stop the beast. And through it all, guitarist and songwriter Gary Holt has persevered with misanthropic indignation, rolling with the punches, reassembling the broken pieces and working with the eccentric personalities surrounding him to create some of the most trenchant, fast-paced, and unrelenting music that influenced everyone from Pantera to Lamb of God and continues to crush skulls at a time decades after most '80s thrash bands have retired.

ESG - Bowery Electric
March 08, 2018 - New York

An art-funk ensemble from the South Bronx, ESG (Emerald Sapphire & Gold) was formed by sisters Renee, Valerie, and Marie Scroggins, all of whom handle vocals and percussion, and friends David Miles (guitar) and Leroy Glover (bass). ESG's music is centered around the sisters' complex polyrhythms with atmosphere supplied by bass and pop-flavored guitar. During their first incarnation, the group signed with 99 Records and issued a debut self-titled EP in 1981 that featured three live and three studio songs, the latter produced by the legendary Martin Hannett (Joy Division, etc.). 1982's ESG Says Dance to the Beat of Moody EP continued in a similar vein, as did their first full-length album, 1983's Come Away With ESG. ESG disbanded shortly thereafter, but unexpectedly re-formed in the early '90s, heralding their comeback with a self-titled 1991 compilation of previously released material. The group's work had become popular among hip-hop artists searching for samples, with such acts as TLC, the Wu-Tang Clan, the Beastie Boys, Big Daddy Kane, and indie rockers Unrest all making use of ESG beats; the group addressed this issue on the 1992 12" EP Sample Credits Don't Pay Our Bills. ESG Live! appeared in 1995, featuring both old and new material. The group continued to record during the late '90s, and even added Scroggins' daughters Chistelle and Nicole.

Parsonsfield - Mercury Lounge
March 08, 2018 - New York

May 6, 2015: Day One in the abandoned axe factory hadn't gone as planned, so today is the first time the five members of Parsonsfield will actually get to make music here. They'd been looking forward to converting this cavernous industrial space on the banks of the Farmington River in Collinsville, CT, ever since singer/banjo player Chris Freeman, who grew up nearby, brought it to their attention. The idea of recording in such a reverberant, reactive space held great appeal after the past six months spent in Canada exclusively performing their critically acclaimed original songs for 'The Heart Of Robin Hood,' a musical that required them to wear in-ear monitors for eight shows a week in theaters designed to be sonically dead. They've got their amps and PA plugged in now, and there's a faint layer of sawdust on top of all the gear. It's nothing compared to yesterday, when they opened the doors for the first time and discovered sawdust an inch thick coating every imaginable surface. It was so bad they had to purchase respirators and devote the entire day to sweeping and vacuuming, trying to outwit the neighbor's overzealous guard dog every time they came and went from the building. The whole process left so much dust still floating in the air that every time they take a break, another layer settles back down to earth, but at least they can comfortably breathe now. Above them, a cyclist crosses the rickety bridge over the river, making a distinctive clatter as the wheels hit a particularly loose plank. It's time to begin 'Blooming Through The Black.'

Having recorded five albums in ten years and toured extensively in support of all of them, Nada Surf — singer/guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca, drummer Ira Elliot and guitarist Doug Gillard (now official fourth member, more on that later) — opted to follow 2012's cracking The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy with a brief but well-earned hiatus. So in January 2015, when Caws informed Nada Surf's vociferous Facebook following that a new record was just about done, the news was greeted with explosive enthusiasm. The music was in the can, he announced, and all that remained was to finish up a few lyrics and sing a few vocals; something he planned to do on off-days off during an upcoming solo acoustic tour. Caws even included a photo of the recording set-up he was bringing in the car. "I was so eager to have an album done that I believed in it as it was," Caws recalls. "But the great thing about being 'finished' is that you can take a breath and evaluate, because the pressure to 'do it' is gone. The more I listened and thought about it, the more I realized that I might want to keep working. Also, I'd sent the tracks to my friend Josh, who runs Barsuk Records, the label we've been on since 2002, and he said 'It's great,' but followed that with a pregnant pause. I got the message. I didn't take that as a critique as much as a belief that I could do better. It was very freeing," Caws continues. "There were already a bunch of songs in the can that we all liked, so I could think more expansively about what the album could be."

Spring Revolution: CuCu Diamantes – Sins of Picasso - National Sawdust
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Sins of Picasso is part of the Spring Revolution festival, National Sawdust's annual two week festival celebrating the musical revolution created by Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Held from March 1st through March 11th, this year Spring Revolution celebrates the voice of multicultural women, with every night featuring female curators, artists and composers because the female perspective is the human perspective and the human perspective should be inclusive. PECADOS DE PICASSO (The Sins of Picasso) is a hybrid of music, performance art, cabaret and theater centered around 8-10 music themes written by CuCu Diamantes and performed in collaboration with musicians and artists, led by musical director Alain Perez, to express the vitality of Latin-American and Caribbean-American culture. The performance explores 20th century artistic concepts and their impact on society through the treatment of women, minorities and creative communities in the United States and Latin America that often are ignored and lack a voice in mainstream media. Pecados de Picasso embodies love as a deadly sin, reversing the traditional Western Christian ideas about morality with specific reference to the famous painting by Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights. The themes are a mosaic of melodies and rhythms that combine a respect for traditional Cuban and Latin music with contemporary arrangements. Discerning listeners will hear the picaresque, double entendre of traditional trova cubana, with references to 20th century art and culture. Spiritually, the Sins of Picasso evokes the feelings of sadness, loneliness and poverty experienced by most of the 'folk' who traditionally created and enjoyed this music, as opposed to the famous white male artists celebrated by museums and universities. Sins of Picasso is produced by Red Hot. The concert will raise funds to help fight AIDS and gender equality in Cuba and Caribbean communities. Visit www.redhot.org to learn more.

Papooz - Rough Trade NYC
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

« Ann Wants to Dance – one of several Papooz tracks that insinuates its way into your brain and stays there – was the result of Penicaut trying out the finger-picking folk guitar technique. Then he sat down with his friend and his other half and the idea occurred to him, as it would anyone, "Ann wants to dance". At which point he thought: "Man, what a great title for a song." A year later, it's had 2.25m YouTube views. » Paul Lester Feb, 2017, The Guardian Sweet melodies, swaying pop rhythms with an exotic French vibe, Papooz popped up in spring 2015. It all started from literature reunions, where friends could bring friends and talk around few glasses. It was love at first sight for Ulysse and Armand who decided to create their own political fanzine. But realising after a few meetings it was too much of a long shot, they quickly decided to turn those reunions into songwriting sessions. Singing in the high notes, is it a girl or a boy ? Where do they come from ? It sounds like British pop with Bossa Nova nonchalance. Surprisingly, those tuned voices originate from Paris. In their twentyish, Ulysse and Armand both grew up with 70s music, digging in their parent's records collection, from The Beach Boys to The Velvet Underground. No wonder why they became best friends, sharing the same curiosity for hidden artists from this time. They recorded their first demos on a computer mic and called themselves Papooz. They liked the way this tropical tone sounded and the recollection of a Native American tribe's cradle. Their first Album « Green Juice » - mixed by Ash Workman (Metronomy) is now available.

Steven Bernstein's Sexmob - Jazz Standard

Random highlights from his long and diverse career include a stint with John Lurie's Lounge Lizards (1990–1991); arranging music for the soundtrack to Robert Altman's 1996 film Kansas City; and working as an arranger/player for everyone from Lou Reed and Marianne Faithfull to Allen Toussaint and Darlene Love. In 1996, Bernstein formed Sexmob with Briggan Krauss, Tony Scherr, and Kenny Wollesen; it remains his primary vehicle for exploring the slide trumpet, a rare instrument that he picked up in a Woodstock guitar shop back in 1977. Sexmob made its disc debut in 1998 with Din of Inequity and went on to release a wildly eclectic series of albums including Sex Mob Does Bond (2001) and Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti: Sex Mob Plays Fellini (2013). To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the group released Cultural Capital, the first Sexmob recording to feature all original compositions by Steven Bernstein.

The Cover of Life - Gene Frankel Theatre
March 08, 2018 - New York

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

Womanly Hips Presents: Birds of Chicago / Victory - BRIC
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

Mixing folk, mountain gospel and soul, husband-and-wife-led band Birds of Chicago return to New York in support of their new album, American Flowers. Birds of Chicago formed in 2012 as a collaboration between Chicago's JT Nero (JT & the Clouds) and Vancouver's Allison Russell (Po' Girl). These two seasoned songwriters convey stark, elemental imagery that feels like scripture, or a lost folk song recovered; and they draw heavily on the gospel tradition, making music that feels like an entirely new, yet familiar sound. For Birds of Chicago, every word counts. Every note counts. No gold-dusting, no filler. Music this raw and soul-rich demands to be experienced live. Singer-songwriter and veteran busker Victory will perform songs from her debut solo EP, It's A New Dawn, on the Stoop. DJ Joe Crispiano, Dap Kings guitarist and rare soul enthusiast, spins in the gallery

March 08, 2018 - New york

At the Dawn of the new century, everything is changing…and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair… and what it means to live in America.

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats - Apollo Comedy Club: Larry Lancaster, Leighann Lord and Suga Sean Riley
March 08, 2018 - New York

"For a long time I always had to go off on my own," says Nathaniel Rateliff of his creative process. "For the first Night Sweats record, I demo'ed everything up and created most of the parts. But for this new record, I felt like we'd all spent so much time on the road that we should all go off somewhere together. We should have that experience together. I wanted the guys to feel like they were giving something to the project beyond just playing." In other words, the Missouri-bred, Denver-based frontman wanted to make the band disappear along with him—out in the middle of the desert at first, and then deep in the woods. The result is the aptly titled Tearing at the Seams, a vivacious and inventive full-band record, with significant contributions from all eight members of The Night Sweats.

Pist.on The Netherlands Wrench - Saint Vitus Bar
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

Gloomy melodic metallers PIST.ON who recently reunited after a lengthy hiatus, launch their live comeback with a one off show in their home city of New York. The bands' first show in more than 15 years will take place at St.Vitus, Brooklyn, NY, USA on 8th March 2018. The show kicks off a busy year for the band with a UK tour already confirmed for June and more dates to follow. The core of the Brooklyn based outfit remains with Henry Font (Vocals / Guitar), Burton Gans (Guitar) and Jeff McManus (Drums). Joining them is new bass guitarist Jack Hanley (ex The Deadlyz). PIST.ON, who will be celebrating 25 years since first forming are looking forward to picking up where they left off, "pissing people off and kicking ass on stage." Having never officially split up, the band are set to emerge from their self imposed exile, a period which gave the band time to tackle numerous issues and retrieve a sense of sanity. The band have commented: "It feels great being reunited after all this time. When we got together for our first rehearsal, it was as if we'd never been apart; the chemistry was still there." "We kinda left everything hanging after our last tour but never split, just took a back seat and dealt with a lot of professional and personal issues that was thrown at us. We've all moved on but we kept in touch over the years. In our own minds we always had the desire to get back together, but it was never talked about until recently."

Driftwood, Lovechild, Matthew Livigni - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

"It's sometimes tough to keep any sort of focus on style or sound when you have three different songwriters," guitarist Dan Forsyth concedes. "But it also allows us to branch out and explore in ways other bands don't. Also, I think it's important, as a band, to ask ourselves 'Is this a good next step?' I think everyone is very excited to know that it is." Describing the Driftwood sound, banjo player Joe Kollar offers, "I consider our sound to be more of an attitude and an approach — the result of all of our influences in a completely open musical forum where the only stipulation is to use bluegrass instruments and create it from the heart." That's as close to being pinned down as Driftwood ever gets. Such has always been the case for artists blurring and blending genre lines in order to innovate. Yes, they wield old-time instruments, but they do so with a punk-rock ethos. "I do not know much about punk music, but I do know that it gives me a feeling of tearing into something without inhibition," violinist Claire Byrne says, adding, "Old-time music has the same feeling for me. The music was a release for people living extremely hard lives in harsh conditions. In this way, the two styles of music are very similar: It's digging in and making a statement. It's rocking out and feeling totally reborn through the song." Driftwood has been digging in and rocking out since their 2005 formation, playing an average of 150 shows a year. "In the beginning, we hit the road constantly with an all-or-nothing attitude," Forsyth confides. "We were doing it with a lot of passion, but had no thoughts about long-term sustainability. Life outside of the band was minimal. One thing that I think we started to notice was, when you're always in it, you have no perspective and you start to lose yourself in a weird way." As such, gigging and traveling that much can't help but influence and inform the band, individually and collectively. In the past, they used the stage to work out arrangements of new songs. For City Lights, they used the studio. "Keeping this kind of touring schedule, we have thought of recording albums as a sort of secondary thing and considered ourselves a 'live' band. We learn so much on the road and this kind of work has always felt productive," Forsyth explains. "It wasn't until this last album that we took some time off to learn more about being in the studio. We wanted to take our time and record on our own terms." According to Byrne, their own terms included "taking a step forward with the production and the arrangements." Kollar tacks "learning" on, for good measure, while Forsyth adds "good songs and bigger arrangements, and sounds than we had not previously achieved

Mannes Sounds Festival presents 'Dichterliebe - The Poet's Love' - German Consulate General New York
March 08, 2018 - New York

The German Consulate General Co-Presents: Mannes Sounds Festival is celebrating the International Women's Day with some of the most romantic works in the classical music repertoire. The concert, "Dichterliebe - The Poet's Love", features the famous song cycle of Robert Schumann. Schumann's love for Clara, who became his wife, was the most important source of inspiration for him as a composer. Clara Schumann, born Clara Wieck, was one of the greatest pianists of the 19th century. An extraordinary woman of tremendous character, she was able to successfully combine her professional responsibilities as a performer with those of wife and mother of eight children. Clara also became an inspiration to another great composer, Johannes Brahms, whose Piano Quartet op.60 in C Minor will be performed. Through the charm of 19th century dance, a selection of short waltzes for piano four hands by the prominent contemporary composer, Wolfgang Rhim, will bring us to the spirit of our own times. This exciting concert will be performed by the outstanding young artists of the Mannes School of Music.

Nada Surf - Brooklyn Steel
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

Having recorded five albums in ten years and toured extensively in support of all of them, Nada Surf — singer/guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca, drummer Ira Elliot and guitarist Doug Gillard (now official fourth member, more on that later) — opted to follow 2012's cracking The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy with a brief but well-earned hiatus. So in January 2015, when Caws informed Nada Surf's vociferous Facebook following that a new record was just about done, the news was greeted with explosive enthusiasm. The music was in the can, he announced, and all that remained was to finish up a few lyrics and sing a few vocals; something he planned to do on off-days off during an upcoming solo acoustic tour. Caws even included a photo of the recording set-up he was bringing in the car. "I was so eager to have an album done that I believed in it as it was," Caws recalls. "But the great thing about being 'finished' is that you can take a breath and evaluate, because the pressure to 'do it' is gone. The more I listened and thought about it, the more I realized that I might want to keep working. Also, I'd sent the tracks to my friend Josh, who runs Barsuk Records, the label we've been on since 2002, and he said 'It's great,' but followed that with a pregnant pause. I got the message. I didn't take that as a critique as much as a belief that I could do better. It was very freeing," Caws continues. "There were already a bunch of songs in the can that we all liked, so I could think more expansively about what the album could be." Caws' instinct to heed his inner editorial voice proved to be spot on: he dropped a few songs, tweaked others, and wrote a few more that, "definitely feel different from what we've done before," he says. "Believe You're Mine" was rejiggered and sped up, while "Cold To See Clear" – originally penned for a collaboration to be named later with Michael Lerner of Telekinesis – was deemed a better fit for Nada Surf. Just before starting You Know Who You Are, Caws had gone to Los Angeles to write with Dan Wilson, who in addition to his success with Semisonic, has won two Grammy Awards for his songs with Adele and the Dixie Chicks. They weren't writing for anyone in particular, they just wanted to see what would happen. Caws felt so good about "Rushing" and "Victory's Yours," that he asked Wilson if he could include them on the new Nada Surf album. Wilson gave the green light, and even offered to contribute backing vocals. When the band returned to Hoboken, NJ for another round of sessions with producer/guitarist Tom Beaujour (Jennifer O'Connor, Amy Bezunartea), the songs were tracked.

Nancy Whang - Brooklyn Bowl
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

Nancy Whang is among the few who can lay claim to being a key figure in the heady early days of the rise of DFA Records, and her DJ sets remain faithful to the post-punk party aesthetic upon which DFA was founded. Nancy's contributions on early 12"'s by LCD Soundsystem and The Juan MacLean quickly lead to her full-time involvement as a permanent member in each of those bands. Shortly after, guest appearances on Soulwax's seminal track 'E Talking' and Munk's 'Kick Out The Chairs' solidified her place as a highly sought after vocalist in the burgeoning alternative dance music scene. It was this auspicious debut upon which Nancy has since built an electrifying career as a touring and recording member of LCD Soundsystem. Logging years of touring miles, Nancy was instrumental in establishing LCD as one of the decades most exciting live bands, headlining some of the greatest festivals worldwide in addition to endless club gigs. As if that were not enough, in LCD's downtime Nancy also fronted DFA act The Juan MacLean, again setting off on rigorous touring schedules of both festivals and clubs across the globe. Her appearance on The Juan MacLean's massive dance hit 'Happy House' once again solidified her place as a sort of hitmaking voice of underground dance music.

The play brings her ideas front and center in a compelling juxtaposition with Factory “Superstars.” The play explores Solanas’ radical views through the lens of a Factory “happening” featuring a cast of “Superstars,” art critics, and outsiders. Furiously-paced and punctuated with slicing humor, whip dances, and anarchist ideals, “S.C.U.M.” cuts through façades to capture the spirit and value of artistic imagination. A Three Rooms Press production, “S.C.U.M.: The Valerie Solanas Story,” is the opening play in Georges’ THREE SOMEBODIES: Plays About Notorious Dissidents (978-1-941110-54-6; Three Rooms Press; March 2018; $19.95), a trio of fascinating, cutting edge plays inspired by people who shook up the world—for better or worse.

Copies of the book will be available at the reading for purchase and signing. Cast members include Leah Bachar as Valerie Solanas, as well as Lois Kagan Mingus, Jane LeCroy, Jerry Goralnick, and Peter Collier. Limited seating. Advance reservations recommended.

The Open Mind: Lessons from the Visual Arts with Eléna Rivera - Poets House
March 08, 2018 - New York

This workshop will focus on the ways the visual arts informs poetry, not just in writing in and about visual art (architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, performance art, installation and public art), but also the ways that the visual arts can help us to re-see our writing practice. How can the visual arts expand our idea of the poem, our practice of making, and help us access inspiration and stimulate our sensibilities? In this six-week workshop we'll write to, with, and in response to these forms of art, see what they have to teach us, how the methods of art-making can enliven our poetry. Participants will be given writing prompts and exercises to stimulate their creativity to generate work for a final project of their own choosing. We'll read short selections from various artists on their art-making process, such as Agnes Martin, Teju Cole, Nathaniel Dorsky, Gabriel Orozco, Gabrielle Civil, and read poets like Frank O'Hara, William Carlos Williams, Barbara Guest, Gwendolyn Brooks, John Ashbery, Gertrude Stein, John Taggart, Cornelius Eady and Anne Carson, among others.

Sunshine Nights - Pete's Candy Store

Driftwood, Lovechild - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

When most people think of upstate New York, they either imagine bucolic landscapes or working-class towns. As natives of Binghamton, the members of Driftwood hail from a working town, but play music rooted in the land, leaning alternately into folk, old-time, country, punk, and rock, depending on their personal moods and their songs' needs. "It's sometimes tough to keep any sort of focus on style or sound when you have three different songwriters," guitarist Dan Forsyth concedes. "But it also allows us to branch out and explore in ways other bands don't. Also, I think it's important, as a band, to ask ourselves 'Is this a good next step?' I think everyone is very excited to know that it is." Describing the Driftwood sound, banjo player Joe Kollar offers, "I consider our sound to be more of an attitude and an approach — the result of all of our influences in a completely open musical forum where the only stipulation is to use bluegrass instruments and create it from the heart."

Yotam Silberstein Quartet - Smalls Live
Through March 08, 2018 - New York City

"Since his arrival in New York in 2005, Israeli guitarist Yotam Silberstein has made an impact on the scene with his precision bebop lines and fleet-fingered improvisations." JazzTimes In only six years since landing in New York , internationally-acclaimed guitarist Yotam has earned a well deserved spot among the Jazz elite by collaborating with legendary musicians such as James Moody, The Heath Brothers, Paquito D'Rivera, Monty Alexander, Roy Hargrove, and the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All-Stars. Yotam's mastery of the guitar is featured on an array of hit albums, ranging from his recent releases, "Resonance" and "Brasil" on the Jazz Legacy Productions label, to Monty Alexander's Grammy-nominated "Harlem-Kingston Express Live!" Whether playing straight ahead jazz, modern, Brazilian, world music, blues or bebop, Yotam's performances receive rave reviews from critics and fans. His stunning showmanship in the Kennedy Center's 2011 production,"Ella!" featuring Dee Dee Bridgewater, Al Jarreau, Dr. Billy Taylor and Janice Siegel, was so spectacular that Yotam was invited back for a special appearance at the KC Jazz Club. Yet, critical acclaim is nothing new for this guitar prodigy, who was a finalist in the 2005 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Guitar Competition. As a recent review noted, "Yotam's tones are exquisitely old school but his playing is fresh, fiery and bursting with joyful exuberance, and musically he's one heavy cat."

Nancy Whang (DFA/LCD SS/The Juan Maclean) - Brooklyn Bowl
March 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

Nancy Whang is among the few who can lay claim to being a key figure in the heady early days of the rise of DFA Records, and her DJ sets remain faithful to the post-punk party aesthetic upon which DFA was founded. Nancy's contributions on early 12"'s by LCD Soundsystem and The Juan MacLean quickly lead to her full-time involvement as a permanent member in each of those bands. Shortly after, guest appearances on Soulwax's seminal track 'E Talking' and Munk's 'Kick Out The Chairs' solidified her place as a highly sought after vocalist in the burgeoning alternative dance music scene. It was this auspicious debut upon which Nancy has since built an electrifying career as a touring and recording member of LCD Soundsystem. Logging years of touring miles, Nancy was instrumental in establishing LCD as one of the decades most exciting live bands, headlining some of the greatest festivals worldwide in addition to endless club gigs. As if that were not enough, in LCD's downtime Nancy also fronted DFA act The Juan MacLean, again setting off on rigorous touring schedules of both festivals and clubs across the globe. Her appearance on The Juan MacLean's massive dance hit 'Happy House' once again solidified her place as a sort of hitmaking voice of underground dance music.

South Street Seaport Museum presents Book Talks: Pirate Women - Melville Gallery at the South Street Seaport Museum
March 08, 2018 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum presents Book Talks: Pirate Women Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Melville Gallery The South Street Seaport Museum presents Book Talks: Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled the Seven Seas on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Melville Gallery, 213 Water Street, NYC. Tickets are $10 (free for members), and available at https://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/book-talks-at-the-seaport-museum/. Doors open at 6:15pm. Reception to follow.   Join the Seaport Museum as author Laura Sook Duncombe discusses her book Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled the Seven Seas. Duncombe explores the lives of women that lived as pirates, even including from the seaport at South Street. Women cast off tradition and took to the sea for many reasons: money, adventure, freedom, love, revenge. This first-ever comprehensive survey shares the stories of women, both real and legendary, that history has largely ignored.   "Thoroughly researched and enthrallingly written. Duncombe shows love and mastery of the subject in equal measure."  -Jason Porath, author of Rejected Princesses: Tales of History's Boldest Heroines, Hellions, and Heretics   For as long as there has been a sea to sail upon, there have been pirates. But what is really known about pirates, beyond peg legs, parrots, eye patches and Captain Hook? Most of the popular images of pirates come from the Golden Age, a small segment of piratical history which spanned from the 1650s to the 1730s in the Caribbean. But pirates have originated around the world, in every century, in every color, age, and creed imaginable. And-surprise!-women pirates have fought alongside men since ancient times, despite the belief in many cultures that women at sea were bad luck. In some cases, the female pirates even commanded the men.   Pirate Women explores why and how these stories are told and passed down-and how history changes depending on who is recording it. It's perfect for pirate fans, feminists, maritime scholars and anyone who wants to learn about fascinating women largely lost to history.    Laura Sook Duncombe is a lawyer and a writer whose work on women pirates has appeared on Jezebel. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia.    ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

Behn Gillece Quartet - Smalls Live
March 08, 2018 - New York City

"Gillece is a skillful creator of tunes, harkening back to the original hard bop days and beyond, without sounding like mere imitations of that era's classics." Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz After a decade on the New York jazz scene, vibraphonist Behn Gillece has built a reputation as a virtuosic instrumentalist and prolific composer. Walk of Fire, his third album as leader was just released on the Posi-Tone Label. The album showcases Gillece's compositions with an exciting septet, featuring trumpeter Bruce Harris, tenor saxophonist Walt Weiskopf, and trombonist Michael Dease. It also features a stellar rhythm section with Adam Birnbaum on piano, Clovis Nicolas on bass, and Jason Tiemann on drums. His other two leader dates, Dare to Be and debut album Mindset, received excellent reviews in reputable jazz periodicals such as Downbeat and Jazziz. Both albums received extensive radio airplay and rose to the top 50 on the Jazzweek radio charts for several weeks. Gillece began studying classical percussion as a teenager. While he was a percussion student at Rowan University, he quickly developed a desire to play jazz. In the early years of his career he performed regularly in his home state of New Jersey and Philadelphia. In 2006 Gillece moved to New York to study at SUNY Purchase. During his development as a jazz composer, Gillece worked closely with saxophonist Ken Fowser in a co-led project. The pair have four acclaimed albums released by Posi-Tone which include 2009's Full View, 2010's Little Echo, 2011's Duotone, and 2013's Top Shelf. All four have received international acclaim and extensive radio play.

Women in Art - The Met Fifth Avenue
March 08, 2018 - Upper East Side

Barbara Stehlé, art historian We have reason to believe that female artists have contributed to the history of art since prehistory, not only as muses, but as creators who fashioned history and defined the arts. The Met collection features great works authored by women. The major artistic movements of the last four centuries reveal the role women played in the definition of modernity. The questions they asked, the life they lived, and their dialogue with their male colleagues will be at the center of our investigation. This will be an up-close introduction to a female-centered art history.

Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
March 08, 2018 - New York City

Beethoven's colossal "Hammerklavier" is the longest and perhaps the most complex of all his sonatas, with a slow movement of rare emotional depth (even by Beethoven's standards) that prefigures Chopin in its ornamentation. The sonata juxtaposes explosive power, fragile tenderness, and earthy humor, capped by a double fugue that rivals Bach in a dazzling display of counterpoint. Pierre-Laurent Aimard—a pianist The Times (London) praised for "stupendous technique, remorseless energy, and fanatical … passion"—performs this masterpiece and more.

Women's Rights and Political Participation in the Middle East - THE CENTURY FOUNDATION
March 08, 2018 - NEW YORK

Start your International Women's Day with the inspirational and extraordinary women's rights advocate Dr. AlAnoud AlSharekh, a leader in the fight to end violence against women and promote women's political participation in the Middle East. The Century Foundation will host a breakfast conversation featuring Dr. AlSharekh—who is visiting from Kuwait—and TCF senior associate Lily Hindy on what's next for women's rights and empowerment in Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf region. A light breakfast will be served at 8:00AM, with the program starting promptly at 8:30AM. About Dr. AlAnoud AlSharekh AlSharekh is the founding director of the Abolish153 campaign to end legislation that effectively gives men regulatory, judicial, and executive power over their female kin—including minimal repercussions for honor killings—in Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf region. She is an outspoken advocate for women's rights in a region where so-called "disciplinary violence" by men against their female kin remains permissible by law and by social practice. Article 153 of Kuwait's penal code treats "honor killing"—when a man murders his sister, wife, daughter, or mother after becoming enraged by her adulterous or sexual transgression—as a misdemeanor, punishable with a maximum three-year prison sentence or a $50 fine. Last summer, three Arab countries passed legislation on violence against women following years of advocacy by local and international campaigns. AlSharekh is also a consulting partner at Ibtkar Strategic Consultancy, where she is training a group of Kuwaiti women political leaders to run for office. In 2016 AlSharekh was awarded a knighthood (National Order of Merit) by the French Government for her work promoting women's rights in the region. She holds a PhD from SOAS London in Comparative Literature and Feminism.

Barbara - Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 08, 2018 - Midtown West

Introductions by Mathieu Amalric and Jeanne Balibar The legendary chanteuse known only as Barbara, gifted with a tremulously expressive voice and striking stage presence, is an enduring icon of French culture. In this tantalizing tribute from actor-director Mathieu Amalric, a transfixing, chameleon-like Jeanne Balibar stars as Brigitte, a film actress cast in a biopic about the singer. This conceit yields, à la Cassavetes' Opening Night, a mesmerizing meta-cinematic high-wire act about the slippery nature of performance and identity as Balibar's Barbara merges with footage of the real-life diva until the two become virtually indistinguishable. The result is both a captivating experiment and a love letter to a singular artist. Nominated for nine César Awards, including Best Film, Director, Actress, Cinematography, and Original Screenplay. U.S. Premiere

The play brings her ideas front and center in a compelling juxtaposition with Factory “Superstars.” The play explores Solanas’ radical views through the lens of a Factory “happening” featuring a cast of “Superstars,” art critics, and outsiders. Furiously-paced and punctuated with slicing humor, whip dances, and anarchist ideals, “S.C.U.M.” cuts through façades to capture the spirit and value of artistic imagination. A Three Rooms Press production, “S.C.U.M.: The Valerie Solanas Story,” is the opening play in Georges’ THREE SOMEBODIES: Plays About Notorious Dissidents (978-1-941110-54-6; Three Rooms Press; March 2018; $19.95), a trio of fascinating, cutting edge plays inspired by people who shook up the world—for better or worse.

Felicia Collins is best known around the world as the guitarist and vocalist in the CBS Orchestra on the LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN. A devoted passion for playing guitar was always present, as far back in her memory as she's able to recall.

Jessica Lea Mayfield, Mal Blum and The Blums - Mercury Lounge
March 09, 2018 - New York

Jessica Lea Mayfield Sorry Is Gone "The whole record is about me taking my life back, without really realizing it," she says. "I realized I'm the only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else." Jessica Lea Mayfield might make some people uncomfortable with the level of honesty she projects on her forthcoming LP, Sorry Is Gone, but she's not going to apologize – for that, or for anything else on her complex, confessional fourth album. Recorded with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent and Dinosaur Jr.), Sorry Is Gone is a raw document of a woman in progress; one weathering cruel storms but finally able to blame the rain itself for the flood. Written as the truth of her own poisonous marriage unfolded before her eyes, Sorry Is Gone is a record of permission. Permission to create freely, to escape what is no longer safe and to stop bearing responsibility for things done to her, not by her. As Mayfield sings on the title track, "the sorry is gone." Indeed, it is; kicked to the curb with every strum of her guitar. Written in the years since her last solo LP, Make My Head Sing, in 2014, and her 2015 collaboration with Seth Avett, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith, Sorry Is Gone became the soundtrack to a highly personal and traumatic story. The Ohio-born Mayfield was quietly enduring years of domestic abuse, smiling and touring while she hid a brewing tempest – and the bruises, too. But lyrics don't lie even as bruises fade, and they started to tell the tale of her marriage before she was even able to; songs often dark and dangerous and ready to confront and claim her life. Written primarily on an acoustic baritone guitar – out of necessity at first, in her thin-walled apartment – Mayfield started to process the years of hurt and uncertainty through words and melodies that helped her see the light in the darkness.

Drunk Restoration Comedy: The Mock-Tempest - The Players Theatre
March 09, 2018 - New York

In 1610, William Shakespeare wrote The Tempest. In 1667, John Dryden wrote The Tempest, or The Enchanted Island, an adaptation of The Tempest. In 1674, Thomas Duffet wrote The Mock Tempest, or The Enchanted Castle, a parody of the adaptation of The Tempest. On Friday March 9, 2018 at 10pm...we’re doing that one. Drunk Restoration Comedy returns to the Players Theatre in the West Village with The Mock Tempest, a ridiculous restoration era piece that just might have poor Bill rolling in his grave. Add a bunch of booze to the mix (as we have done) and you’re in for a hilarious Friday night! The premise of Drunk Restoration Comedy: our team of brave (or just crazy?) actors, comedians, and improvisers will perform a reading of a classical piece of theatre. The catch: they'll be doing so while heavily under the influence. Even better, this interactive evening will give audience members a chance to choose their own adventure and dictate which performers get totally sloshed and which are sent packing. Anything could happen, come find out what does! $12 tickets (which include one complimentary beer, wine or cocktail) are available now at drunkrestoration.com.

The Nomadic Kevin Rath KA-TYA James Beer - The Bowery Electric
March 09, 2018 - New York

New York, NY - KA-TYA has just released her debut music video, 'Little House', a low-fi wintertime memoryscape that features footage of her as a child and her young parents in Ukraine in the early 90s. The video cracks open the heartache underpinning her 2015 debut single 'Little House', which was lauded by Australian music industry blog Tone Deaf as 'an indie dark pop masterpiece'. Soviet-born KA-TYA (aka Katia Pshenichner) playfully defies genres, dancing boldly from haunting, synth-driven ballads to joyfully irreverent quirk-pop. The elfin singer-songwriter's unconventional melodicism and theatrical vocal styling pay tribute to her Russian folk heritage, while her unabashed sense of whimsy reflects her Australian upbringing.

Winter Term Torkwase Dyson and the Wynters-Well Drawing School for Environmental Justice - The Drawing Center
Through March 09, 2018 - Soho

The Drawing Center is pleased to announce Winter Term, a new annual initiative in which the museum will partner with an artist or organization whose mission it is to explore the transformative role that drawing can play in civic and global society. The yearly program, which will consist of public events, classes, and performances as well as an exhibition, will build a community of people to investigate the efficacy of drawing as a tool for addressing inequity and encouraging social change. In a world ever more in need of human connection and compassion, Winter Term will ask how drawing, the most universal medium, might extend beyond the gallery space to provide concrete tools for collective engagement and collaboration. In this way, Winter Term provides a new model for exhibition making as well as for the role that art institutions can play in the real world. For the first session, which will take place in February and March of 2018, The Drawing Center has invited New York-based artist Torkwase Dyson to create an installation and organize a two-week series of classes, discussions, and formal experiments developed from her incipient project the Wynter-Wells Drawing School for Environmental Justice—named for Jamaican writer Sylvia Wynter and American Civil Rights leader Ida B. Wells. The School will present an experimental curriculum employing techniques culled from the visual arts as well as design theories of geography, infrastructure, engineering, and architecture to initiate dialogue about geographic genealogy in an era of global crisis due to human-induced climate change. Participation in the course will be by application with portions open to the public. During an open studio-style installation, Dyson will explicate her own formal concept of "Black Compositional Thought" while terms such as improvisation, nomadicity, and re-orientation will be applied to techniques within abstract drawing that confront issues of environmental justice and the path towards a more equitable future. Confirmed invited guests include architect Mabel Wilson, curator Rujeko Hockley, artist and designer Ekene Ijeoma, designer and educator Ronald Morrison, choreographer Dean Moss, and artist Zachery Fabri who will engage in a site-specific performance. Following the residency, the museum will release a publication with contributions from artists Dawoud Bey and Allison Janae Hamilton as well as poet Ronaldo Wilson among others. Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator.

Pianist Michael McNeill has cultivated a personal style that has found a home in contexts both mainstream and avant-garde, from the ethereal chamber-jazz sounds of resAUnance, to the post-bop energy of Kelly Bucheger's What Would Mingus Do?, and in his own music for his trio with veteran improvisers Ken Filiano (bass) and Phil Haynes (drums) and for the Buffalo Jazz Octet. His two CDs with Filiano and Haynes have drawn praise from critics in the US and abroad, who note that the band plays "thoughtful… interactive music that is seriously playful" (StepTempest), "brimming with intelligence and passion" (AllAboutJazz.com), and that the trio "has much to offer not only to jazz or classical music, but music as a whole" (Music On The Run, Brazil). The recent debut albums of resAUnance and the Buffalo Jazz Octet have also been well-received by critics: resAUnance's Migration made critic Budd Kopman's "Best Releases of 2016" list, while Tom Hull graded the Buffalo Jazz Octet's PausaLive an A-, calling the band "a remarkable large free jazz ensemble, with … brisk and energetic group improv that never breaks down." Other projects and collaborations have included concerts with Dave Ballou, Juini Booth, Joe Ford, Drew Gress, Paul Smoker, and David Taylor. Forthcoming recordings include a trio album with bassist Danny Ziemann and drummer John Bacon featuring compositions of Thelonious Monk.

'Hatched' by Treehouse Shakers - BAM/Hillman Studio
March 09, 2018 - Fort Greene

Hatched is the story of a newborn chick who emerges from her shell to a strange, and busy world. The chick is met by a feisty old rooster, a newly born calf learning to walk, a baby lamb and a noisy nest of baby birds. Performed through movement, live music, puppets, and very little human dialogue, the story is set amidst a playful American family farm. Intimately staged, young audience members are encouraged to interact with the newborn animals as they explore their worlds. Audience members interact and play with the characters on stage; they give the chicks their feed, milk bottles to the lamb, are licked by the cow, and feed worms to the baby birds. Hatched is a beautiful tale, told through exquisite visuals, music, and the exploration of baby animals on the farm.

The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce.

She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

In the summer of 2012, Orleans experienced a tragedy in the sudden passing of co-founder Larry Hoppen. While there is no replacing Larry, Co-founder/brother Lance Hoppen and long-standing members, Lane Hoppen, Fly Amero and Charlie Morgan made the decision to continue performing the remaining calendar year's performances with co-founder John Hall, who returned from sabbatical as a US Congressman in order to finish the tour with dignity and integrity. With more than a dozen successful shows under their belt, the band finds that they are more than ready, willing and able to forge ahead into year 41.

Tune-Yards - Brooklyn Steel
March 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Tune-Yards was formed by Merrill Garbus in 2006, and that band name has ever since been synonymous with forward movement—whether because of the group's explosive performance style, the always-surprising way in which their songs unfold, or the lines Merrill draws between music and social activism. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called "a confident do-it-yourselfer's opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter," Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring. Garbus became a producer in her own right working with bassist Nate Brenner and engineer Eli Crews on 2011's w h o k i l l, a startling and sonically adventurous statement that led to a whirlwind period where the band accrued accolades from critics (including the #1 spot on the Village Voice's 2011 Pazz and Jop poll.) In 2014, Tune-Yards released Nikki Nack, and through touring and licensing music from that album, they raised money to begin The Water Fountain, a fund for water-related causes which has donated over $75,000 to various nonprofits since its inception.

Gangstagrass - Hill Country Live

"There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their iPod playlists than you think." says Rench, who had previously made a name for himself as an in-demand Brooklyn country and hip-hop producer, and solo artist.

"She has a gift for the music of words, a feel for the stories they tell and an instinct for how to drape a lyric elegantly across a vivid melody… Lawry, effervescent and riveting, imbued her singing with a freedom." – Sydney Morning Morning Herald "Singer of dazzling self-possession." – New York Times

Everything Turned to Color - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 09, 2018 - New York

"It's like She and Him have found a seriousness that is often missing in most pop music." - Audio Fuzz Everything Turned To Color is the unlikely but serendipitous musical partnership between veteran songwriters Bryan and Kyle Weber and Neha Jiwrajka. It was in the lobby of their Brooklyn apartment building that Bryan first met Neha, the new neighbor that apparently didn't mind his kids running, screaming, and climbing all over the lobby furniture. The chance encounter quickly turned into regular song workshopping sessions, which inevitably included Bryan's longtime songwriting partner Kyle on lead guitar. In June of 2016, the group entered ECR Music Studios in NYC to track its debut album with esteemed musician/producer and founder of #IRespectMusic, Blake Morgan. The eleven song LP, entitled "Life Imagined", was released on June 23, 2017 in tandem with two sold-out sets at Rockwood Music Hall's stage 3, and followed by extensive touring on both coasts. Says Mr. Morgan: "It's rare that I'm hit this powerfully with new music–truly goose-bump inducing–and as a result, I'm not only a fan but completely sure that great things lie ahead for this band."

The Low Anthem - The Bowery Ballroom
March 09, 2018 - New York

The Universe may or may not have had a Pre-Universe. Stars eventually formed and turned on. Planets and moons followed. Everything in motion, constantly changing, as in a dance of the fireflies. At some point, Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky were born to the human family, grew up to love music, and as atomic randomness dictates, found each other turning two on the baseball diamond. They started a band in 2006 called The Low Anthem, and over ten years of making music together, have developed a distinctive sound, and grown a beautiful friendship. Sounds and silences co-exist. Sounds of nature, extrahuman, fill the silences on the ballfield. What sounds can guitars and basses make into this great creative void? Thus began the journey of acoustics, friendship, song, and their meanings. Providence, RI was the meeting place. They found an apartment together on East St., bought a microphone, and got to work. What came out they called What The Crow Brings. It was their first record. "I remember hanging a microphone outside a third floor window, and the cable dangling over a clothesline on the second floor," mused Jeff. "We got the take, though," said Ben. That winter, while many Rhode Islanders sought shelter on the mainland, Ben and Jeff assembled a small crew of friends and sailed to Block Island to make another album. What came out they called Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. It was their second. "I always wanted to record the sound of crackling fire, and finally had my chance" said Jeff. "You never know what thorns to the rose may grow," said Ben.

Jessica Lea Mayfield - Mercury Lounge
March 09, 2018 - New York

"The whole record is about me taking my life back, without really realizing it," she says. "I realized I'm the only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else." Jessica Lea Mayfield might make some people uncomfortable with the level of honesty she projects on her forthcoming LP, Sorry Is Gone, but she's not going to apologize – for that, or for anything else on her complex, confessional fourth album. Recorded with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent and Dinosaur Jr.), Sorry Is Gone is a raw document of a woman in progress; one weathering cruel storms but finally able to blame the rain itself for the flood. Written as the truth of her own poisonous marriage unfolded before her eyes, Sorry Is Gone is a record of permission. Permission to create freely, to escape what is no longer safe and to stop bearing responsibility for things done to her, not by her. As Mayfield sings on the title track, "the sorry is gone." Indeed, it is; kicked to the curb with every strum of her guitar. Written in the years since her last solo LP, Make My Head Sing, in 2014, and her 2015 collaboration with Seth Avett, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith, Sorry Is Gone became the soundtrack to a highly personal and traumatic story. The Ohio-born Mayfield was quietly enduring years of domestic abuse, smiling and touring while she hid a brewing tempest – and the bruises, too. But lyrics don't lie even as bruises fade, and they started to tell the tale of her marriage before she was even able to; songs often dark and dangerous and ready to confront and claim her life. Written primarily on an acoustic baritone guitar – out of necessity at first, in her thin-walled apartment – Mayfield started to process the years of hurt and uncertainty through words and melodies that helped her see the light in the darkness. Though much of Make My Head Sing was written music-first, Sorry Is Gone began with those lyrics, and, so often, a path forward unfolded itself as the songs formed. "The cold hard truth is you love me too much," she sings on "Meadow," a moody, echoey moment about finally realizing someone's true colors. "The cold hard truth is you couldn't love me enough." It's a brutal line from someone who refuses to be victimized. Evoking the pathos of nineties grunge, the folk confessions of her idol, Smith, and the cool blasé of bands like Luscious Jackson, the tracks that comprise Sorry Is Gone aren't devised to make anyone comfortable but herself – but they are there to help share an emotional journal and a certain kind of healing that can only come through music.

Elvis Costello & the Imposters - The Capitol Theatre
Through March 09, 2018 - Port Chester

This event is 18 and over This event will have a reserved seated Orchestra, Loge, and Balcony. 18 & over unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Elvis Costello has followed his musical curiosity in a career spanning more than 30 years. He is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. However, he has also entered into acclaimed collaborations with Burt Bacharach, The Brodsky Quartet, Paul McCartney, Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, guitarist Bill Frisell, composer Roy Nathanson, The Charles Mingus Orchestra, record producer and songwriter T Bone Burnett and Allen Toussaint. Costello's songs have been recorded by a great number of artists. The list of performers reflects his interest in a wide range of musical styles: George Jones, Chet Baker, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Robert Wyatt, Charles Brown, No Doubt, Solomon Burke, June Tabor, Howard Tate, the gospel vocal group The Fairfield Four and the viol consort Fretwork with the countertenor Michael Chance. In 2003, he began a songwriting partnership with his wife, the jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall, resulting in six songs included in her highly successful album 'The Girl In The Other Room'. During his career Costello has received several prestigious honors, including two Ivor Novello Awards for songwriting, a Dutch Edison Award with The Brodsky Quartet for 'The Juliet Letters', the Nordoff-Robbins Silver Clef Award, a BAFTA for the music written with Richard Harvey for Alan Bleasdale's television drama series 'G.B.H.' and a Grammy for "I Still Have That Other Girl" from his 1998 collaboration with Burt Bacharach, 'Painted From Memory'. Elvis Costello and The Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. During the same year he was awarded ASCAP's prestigious Founder's Award. There have also been a number of Grammy nominations for his recent albums 'When I Was Cruel' and 'The Delivery Man'. The late-2003 Deutsche Grammophon release 'North' – an album of piano ballads composed, orchestrated and conducted by Costello – retained the number one position on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart for five weeks. In 2004 Costello was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song – "The Scarlet Tide," sung by Alison Krauss in the motion picture "Cold Mountain." The song was co-written with T Bone Burnett. The summer of 2004 saw Costello presenting a series of concerts as part of the Lincoln Center Festival in New York City. Following concerts with the Metropole Orkest and The Imposters, The Brooklyn Philharmonic, conducted by Brad Lubman, gave the premiere concert performance of 'Il Sogno', Costello's first full-length orchestral work. The music was originally commissioned in 2000 by the Italian Dance Company, Aterballetto, for their adaptation of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Following performances in Bologna with the Orchestra del Teatro Communale, the ballet was staged throughout Italy, Germany, France and Russia. 'Il Sogno' was subsequently recorded by The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Michael Tilson-Thomas. The recording was released in the late 2004 by Deutsche Grammophon and stayed at the top of Billboard's Contemporary Classical Charts for 14 weeks. Elvis Costello was commissioned by The Royal Danish Opera to compose an opera based on the life of Hans Christian Andersen. "The Secret Songs," a "work-in-progress" cycle extracted from the opera, was given its first performance in Copenhagen in October 2005 to an appreciative audience response and enthusiastic reviews. Costello sang both of the leading male roles, Andersen and that of the showman P.T. Barnum, while the leading female role of Jenny Lind was taken by Swedish soprano Gisela Stille. In January 2006, Elvis Costello was a featured artist at the Sydney Festival in Australia, presenting a series of contrasting concerts. The first reunited Costello with the Brodsky Quartet for excerpts from 'The Juliet Letters', while in the second half, Steve Nieve, double-bassist Greg Cohen and soprano Antoinette Halloran joined Costello and the Brodsky Quartet for several newly arranged excerpts from "The Secret Songs." Costello and Nieve then gave a second concert, in which they drew on some of Costello's rarely performed compositions. The festival appearances concluded with two concerts with the Sydney Symphony conducted by Alan Broadbent at the Opera House. The program consisted of a suite from 'Il Sogno', followed by a number of Costello's songs arranged for orchestra by Costello, Sy Johnson, Bill Frisell, Vince Mendoza and Steve Nieve. The program also included compositions by Charles Mingus and Billy Strayhorn with Costello's lyrics and songs written by Costello and Burt Bacharach for the album 'Painted from Memory'. Many of these compositions are also featured on 'My Flame Burns Blue', the live recording of Costello's performance with the Metropole Orkest at the 2004 North Sea Jazz Festival that was released in March of 2006 by Deutsche Grammophon coupled with the suite of 'Il Sogno' highlights. Later that spring, Costello, Nieve and conductor Alan Broadbent presented a program similar to their Australian tour throughout the U.S., including appearances with San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Austin and Baltimore's symphony orchestras. 2007 saw Costello tour extensively with The Imposters and also with Allen Toussaint throughout the USA and Europe. In autumn 2007 he undertook a highly successful tour, performing solo on "The Bob Dylan Show." In late 2007, Costello completed his work on a commission from The Miami City Ballet when he collaborated with world-famous choreographer Twyla Tharp. The work, entitled "NIGHTSPOT," was premiered in Miami to great critical acclaim in March 2008. A new album with The Imposters entitled 'Momofuku' had already been recorded in secrecy in a period of just seven days and was released on April 22, 2008. In December 2008, Costello launched the inaugural season of his internationally acclaimed music television series Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…. Spectacle is a compelling blend of the best of talk and music television that offers a fly-on-the-wall perspective on the creative process with an extraordinary and eclectic array of guests joining host Elvis Costello to chat, perform and share their passion for all kinds of music. The program's eclecticism and depth reflect its uniquely qualified host, a songwriter and performer comfortable in almost every genre imaginable; a musicologist of formidable breadth and knowledge; a contributor to Vanity Fair; and a noted wit whose stint as guest host on "The Late Show with David Letterman" won rave reviews. First season's guests included: Sir Elton John, Tony Bennett, Lou Reed, Julian Schnabel, Smokey Robinson, The Police (Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers), James Taylor, Herbie Hancock, Rufus Wainwright, Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Diana Krall, John Mellencamp, Jakob Dylan, She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward), Norah Jones, Jenny Lewis, Renée Fleming and President Bill Clinton. The second season of Spectacle will begin airing in late 2009 and feature guests including Bono & The Edge, Neko Case, Sheryl Crow, Levon Helm, Ray Lamontagne, Lyle Lovett, Nick Lowe, John Prine, Ron Sexsmith, Bruce Springsteen, Richard Thompson, Allen Toussaint and Jesse Winchester. On June 2, 2009 Hear Music released Costello's 'Secret, Profane & Sugarcane.' Produced by T Bone Burnett and recorded by Mike Piersante during a three-day session at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studio, 'Secret, Profane & Sugarcane' debuted at #13 on the Billboard 200, Costello's highest album chart position since 1980's Get Happy. Following its release, Costello toured extensively with the featured musicians on the album dubbed the Sugarcanes – Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Mike Compton, Jeff Taylor and Dennis Crouch.

Pat Green, Eli Young Band, Casey Donahew, Wade Bowen - Terminal 5
March 09, 2018 - New York

It's impossible to know your limits without testing them. It's a truth that Pat Green has employed in his career, one that has propelled him to repeatedly refashion his sound, his approach and his own perception of who he is. He's simultaneously a Grammy-nominated hit maker with an outsider reputation, a Texas inspiration and a mainstream country artist who can rock arena and stadium stages with the likes of Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney. Each of those roles has its own place. But each of them is too small to define Pat Green, who after 15 years in the recording business has earned the right to be everything Pat Green can be. Without limitations. "I'd much rather be me and comfortable in my own skin than trying to be five different guys to get to the top," he says. In fact, after building a reputation as an ace songwriter of his own material, Green is fighting even that limitation with Songs We Wish We'd Written II, a sequel to a 2001 album he recorded with longtime friend—and fellow Texan—Cory Morrow. Stocked with music penned by the likes of Lyle Lovett, Tom Petty, Shelby Lynne and Jon Randall, the disc—Green's first for the acclaimed Sugar Hill label—mixes country, rock and blues in a manner that defies categorization. Petty's "Even The Losers" and Collective Soul's

The show features songs from the apologies of Louis CK, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer and more, with live guitar & piano. There are dance tracks, piano ballads, and even a faux-Christian rock song. The songs are hilarious and really show how ridiculous and flawed these apologies are. The words will be projected in full view so the audience can see how Maul turned them into songs. Maul is joined by other comedic singers for half of the show: Alyson Greenfield, Jen Kwok, Lady Kate Weber, Alexius Smith, Chase O’Donnell, and Tahlia Robinson. This evening of unique, funny music from a group of talented ladies is a night you won’t want to miss!

Badges of Honor: Brooklyn's Protectors - Brooklyn Public Library - Central Library
Through March 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Our exhibit, Badges of Honor: Brooklyn's Protectors, highlighting the good work that is done by every day Brooklynites, brings together items from the Brooklyn Collection's photographs, prints and ephemera collection along with 21 on-loan badges belonging to Brooklyn native, Art Sinai. The exhibit contains badges that span a century (1850 – 1950) selected from a variety of neighborhoods as well as occupations such as beach patrol, sheriffs and firefighters. Art Sinai was raised in East New York, Crown Heights and Sheepshead Bay. After graduating from Brooklyn College in 1961, he started his law enforcement career as a treasury agent. In 1977 at the age of 38 he was appointed to the Treasury Department as a deputy assistant secretary. A year later, after being gifted a badge by a classmate, Mr. Sinai started his collection. This led to a lifelong passion for collection badges, which now includes up to 8,000 federal, state, city, local and railroad badges. It also includes the largest collection of historic humane law enforcement badges in the world. Having bought, sold and traded badges for over 50 years, some of the most thrilling finds are rare badges from Brooklyn. We're pleased to announce that Mr. Sinai is also donating a portion of his collection to the Brooklyn Collection. Everyone has the potential to be someone's hero. By featuring the good work done by Brooklyn's protectors, we aim to shine a light on the everyday members of our community, who in times of trouble take on the mantle.

Big White - Berlin
March 09, 2018 - New York

Premiering via Rolling Stone Australia, Sydney's own Big White have returned with a muscular new track 'On and On'. New to the Spunk! roster, the energetic five-piece share the track as a first preview of a new full-length album due Autumn 2018. Likened to The Cure, Talking Heads and The Go-Betweens, Big White's music is diverse in both influence and style, touching on British New Wave sounds with Australian jangle pop. Singer/guitarist Cody Munro Moore says of 'On and On': "We sing about temporary friends and longstanding relationships; how every little surprise, every new person and idea you come into contact with signals small changes that influence a changing idea of what is 'you' and how yourself interacts with everyone else's changing forms. While recorded in the countryside, this was a chance for us to make something that got to the sharp edge as quick, and with as much urgency that a pop song could take."

Mikey Erg, the Slow Death , Nervous Triggers, Headlines - The Safari Room at El Cortez
March 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Mikey Erg is a punk rock drummer, guitarist, and vocalist, from New Jersey. He has played in numerous bands, most famously The Ergs!, but also Star Fucking Hipsters, The Dopamines, The Unlovables, Dirtbike Annie, Parasites, and The LLC (the house band on The Chris Gethard Show). In 2016, he released his first solo album, Tentative Decisions. After several unsuccessful attempts at mining alpacas for wool and chickening out of bank robberies a young Jesse Swan Thorson thought he could make himself rich at playing music. He had no idea how wrong he was. Boasting drunkenly at a divebar in Fargo, ND he convinced some local half-wits to form a band and Pretty Boy Thorson was born. Stringing together music ripped off from Merle Haggard songs and misunderstood bible quotes, Pretty Boy Thorson managed to write and record several records. Quickly tiring of Mr. Thorson's deranged antics members of the band fled to opposite coasts of the United States. Realizing he was too lazy to continue on his own, Jesse along with life partner David Strait recruited punk legend Jonny C from the critically acclaimed Rest of Us (Tampa, FL) and a guy named Mike from some bullshit band called The Ergs, they changed their name to The Slow Death to stop running from the obvious. They are now considering touring with top bands and maybe getting a haircut.

Julian Lage Trio Julian Lage official site | Julian Lage on Twitter | Julian Lage on Instagram Julian Lage is of the 'highest category of improvising musicians, those who can enact thoughts and impulses as they receive them.' (New Yorker) The California- born, now New York–based guitarist has evolved from collaborator (with such giants as Gary Burton, Jim Hall, David Grisman, Béla Fleck, and Charles Lloyd) to band leader. On Modern Lore, Julian Lage's second studio recording with his trio, the composer and guitarist focuses on the groove, building his melodies and solos around the work of the prodigious rhythm section of double bassist Scott Colley and drummer Kenny Wollesen. Modern Lore finds Lage playfully flipping the script he followed on his acclaimed 2016 Mack Avenue debut, Arclight. UK's Jazzwise describes Arclight as '… a bright light shone on very specific, finely wrought musical miniatures that unfold untold pleasures.' Evidenced in a wide discography of duo projects (Fred Hersh, Nels Cline, Punch Brothers guitarist Chris Eldridge, the New Yorker muses, "There's a disarming spirit of generosity in the musicianship of Julian Lage, and a keener sense of judicious withholding. A guitarist with roots tangled up in jazz, folk, classical and country music…'

Elias String Quartet - Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall
March 09, 2018 - New York

Tensions, passions, and daring tonal explorations are at the center of this program. Schubert's brief but powerful Quartettsatz opens in an agitated state; despite its lyrical second theme, it never quite releases its tension. The platonic love for a younger, married woman inspired a flurry of compositional activity in the last years of Janá?ek's life. His "Intimate Letters" Quartet is a passionate paean to his love. Beethoven's String Quartet in E-flat Major—also composed near the end of his life—ventures into new harmonic territories and boasts a set of brilliant second-movement variations on a noble theme.

Skinny Lister, Will Varley, The Narrowbacks - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
March 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Skinny Lister are not your average, modern day, gentrified English folk group. Fronted by Dan Heptinstall and Lorna Thomas; a vocalist with a lusty cackle and flirtatious presence, the London based five-piece hail from across England. Borrowing the nickname from the Lister family, pioneers in the use of anesthetic, the band have grown naturally and organically over the past two years. Yorkshire born songwriter Heptinstall, Lorna's older brother Max, and long-time shanty singer Sam 'Mule' Brace, met some time ago at a folk club in London's Greenwich area. The arrival of Tyneside bassist Dan Gray and the naturally exuberant Lorna lifted them into another realm. Up on their stomping feet and clicking their heels, the Skinny Lister sound took hold as Dan's perceptive ballads and folkie idylls were boosted by an eruption of a rambunctious free spirited rum fueled party music. Soon the Skinny Lister sound was charging down the nation's canals and waterways, bursting into spontaneous song in pubs and clubs, kicking up a summer frenzy at numerous festivals. Over 30 festivals in fact, a nonstop work rate that saw them acknowledged and awarded by PRS as the 'Hardest Working Band' of summer 2011. "We travelled hundreds of miles together in a Land Rover with a double bass strapped to the roof, sharing the driving, playing gigs every night and going out to party afterwards. We didn't make it easy on ourselves but it does bond you as family." Dan recollects.

Keith Robinson, Rich Vos, Ron Bennington, Pete Lee, Jim Florentine, Aaron Berg, and More! - The Stand
March 09, 2018 - New York

Keith Robinson is the quintessential comedian's comedian, admired by his fellow artists – his great art of inherently subverting his audience, shaking them out of their cozy assumptions to fresh perspectives sustains his comedic prominence. His commanding stage presence has gained him appearances on MTV, VH1, HBO's Def Comedy Jam, TBS's family comedy series Are We There Yet, The Chelsea Lately Show on E! and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Many talented comedians can make you laugh but it's difficult to find a comedian who rises to a level of middle brow brilliance finding comic expression in cultural/racial disparities, his mischievous past, and political absurdities, which leads to a further probing deep beneath Keith Robinson's hardened pseudo-street exterior to expose his geeky indisputable-intellectual interior. It is within the comedic improvisation of standup where his strident honesty and confrontational style expose the conspicuously concealed obvious – spilling to observations that masterfully make him a skillful teller-of-tales.

Free Talk: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead - Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 09, 2018 - Midtown West

Though French cinema is a world leader in making female directors central to the industry, there is still a strong male chauvinism throughout society, pervasive in both art and in the workplace. Director Tonie Marshall—whose latest film, Number One, depicts how women still have to struggle to climb the social ladder—will join journalist Lisa Rosman, Women & Hollywood founder Melissa Silverstein, and producer Rachel Watanabe-Batton for a special talk about issues around female empowerment and the place of women in the French film and corporate industries.

March 09, 2018 - New York

When the toxic 10-year relationship that has defined her adult life implodes, 31-year-old Paula (rising star Laetitia Dosch, nominated for a Best Newcomer César Award) finds herself adrift on Paris' Left Bank. With no money, no job, and no idea what's next, the turbulent Paula resorts to a series of desperate lies in order to keep a roof over her head. But this young woman is more resilient than even she initially realizes. Made by an almost entirely female crew, Léonor Serraille's debut feature—winner of the Camera d'Or at Cannes for best first film—is a refreshingly complex portrait of an all-too-human heroine veering between instability and strength as she makes a place for herself in the world.

It's 1425, and 8-year-old shepherdess Jeannette—the future Joan of Arc—already has the weight of the French nation on her shoulders as she grapples with matters of the soul, the ongoing Hundred Years' War, and the feeling that she is meant for something great. Along the way there are head-banging nuns, surreal angelic visions, and a cavalcade of hard-stomping electro-rock song and dance numbers recorded live on location. The result is an ecstatically unique and transportive experience that is, at heart, the story of a young heroine realizing her destiny. A KimStim release. N.Y. Premiere

(Jazz Times) Higgins won a Grammy as a member of Dee Dee Bridgewater's tribute to Ella Fitzgerald which he was featured on. Other credits include tour and recording engagements with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, Count Basie Orchestra, Bobby Short, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, Stevie Wonder, and Yoko Ono, among many others.

July Tales - Contes de juillet - Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 09, 2018 - Midtown West

Two languorous summer days, two thorny tales of romantic misunderstanding: in part one, two girlfriends (Milena Csergo and Lucie Grunstein) head to the Cergy leisure park for a day of swimming and equally vigorous flirtation; in the second, a Norwegian exchange student (Hanne Mathisen Haga) finds herself the target of unwanted attention from two would-be suitors. Channeling the spirits of Éric Rohmer and Jacques Rozier in its sunny summer setting and concern with the erotic entanglements of the young and idle, this deceptively breezy diptych is, on the surface, a charming diversion. Look a bit closer and you'll find an incisive study of the ever-complicated relationships between men and women. North American Premiere Salut les jeunes All-Day Film Pass available! Are you between the ages of 21-40?

The Lion Sleeps Tonight - Le lion est mort ce soir - Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 09, 2018 - Midtown West

Living legend Jean-Pierre Léaud stars in this playfully self-reflexive ghost story, which functions as a consideration of cinema, mortality, and the actor's own status as an emblem of film history. He plays Jean, an aging movie actor who, as he prepares to shoot a death scene, finds himself visited by the spirit of a dead, long-ago lover (Pauline Etienne). Meanwhile, he has visitors of another kind: a band of children who cast him in the DIY haunted house movie they are making. Director Nobuhiro Suwa channels the spirit of Rivette as he spins a wonderfully loose-limbed tale that delights in the infinite possibilities of filmmaking. Plus: the gratifying sight of Léaud chucking apples at a gaggle of pesky youngsters. North American Premiere

Turtle Island Quartet - Cutting Room
March 09, 2018 - New York

In this high-flying program, the two-time GRAMMY® winning Turtle Island Quartet pays homage to the incandescent visionary brilliance of jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker. The genius of his improvisations almost single handedly catapulted jazz from pop style into art music, indelibly altering the musical landscape of America. Iconic Charlie Parker classics such as KoKo, A Night In Tunisia, and Dewey Square are juxtaposed with original responses by quartet members, and intertwined with other thematic pieces from the bebop era and beyond such as Sonny Rollins' Airegin, Miles Ahead by Gil Evans/Miles Davis, and Subconscious-Lee by Lee Konitz. Grammy-nominated composer David Balakrishnan contributes his newly commissioned work, Aeroelasticity: Harmonies Of Impermanence.* Turtle Island draws its primary focus and musical identity from the individual creative voices of the ensemble who are at home in folk, pop and jazz. It continues to recalibrate the foundational parameters of the traditional string quartet form, in a sense coming from the other direction.

Kyle Cook (of Matchbox Twenty) - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 10, 2018 - New York

Kyle Cook has had a very high profile gig since 1996, when Matchbox Twenty – with Kyle as lead guitarist – first burst into the national scene with their landmark album Yourself or Someone Like You. The album went on to sell 10X platinum, launching a group that is regarded as one of the most popular American rock bands in recent history, achieving the rare feat of simultaneous success at modern rock, adult alternative and Top 40 radio. Their influence hasn't dimmed: their most recent album, North, climbed to #1 on the Billboard Top 200. As Kyle's career has continued to evolve – within MB20; as lead guitarist/lead vocalist with The New Left; co-writing, performing and producing several songs on John Waite's 2011 Rough & Tumble; opening his own record label last year – the Indiana native is taking the culmination of his experiences and, for the first time, releasing an album that is all his own. Wolves, Kyle Cook's first solo project, reflects his evolution as an artist, as well as his love for all forms of music.

The Knaves of The Children's Shakespeare Theatre present The Merchant of Venice By William Shakespeare Directed by Diana Green Shakespeare’s anti-semitic play? Or a multi-layered exploration of racism and how outsiders are excluded? This play is technically a comedy as nobody dies and people get married, but the overarching themes are difficult to tackle and many directors shy away from the play as a result.

Sepoy, God Tiny - Mercury Lounge
March 10, 2018 - New York

Sepoy is a four piece Indie Alternative Pop Rock 'n' Roll band based in New York City that formed in 2012. From their childhood in India to their current lives in the U.S.A, Sepoy's debut album is influenced thematically from their experiences from traveling down this road. The ethnic rhythmic and tonal influences lay understated but subliminally present in their debut 12 song Alternative Rock 'n' Roll album "Impasse". From both a production and compositional standpoint, this leans more towards a "70's Pop Rock record meets an early 90's Alt Rock record" rather than mainstream Contemporary Rock. Following their debut album, Sepoy has delivered yet another eclectic piece of Alternative Rock. This time, the band fuses a style quite reminiscent of 80's Pop Rock with a more contemporary flavor of Synthpop. The band name Sepoy – originally referring to an indigenous soldier serving under an imperialist conqueror – symbolizes their role in society and what the album is all about; a contextualization of the Sepoy's Dilemma in everyday situations faced by everyday people.

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through March 10, 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.

The Chieftains - The Town Hall
March 10, 2018 - New York

2017 marks the 55th Anniversary of The Chieftains beginning. Since 1962, they have been six-time Grammy Award winners and been highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and International scale. Their ability to transcend musical boundaries to blend tradition with modern music has notably hailed them as one of the most renowned and revered musical groups to this day. As cultural ambassadors, their performances have been linked with seminal historic events, such as being the first Western musicians to perform on the Great Wall of China, participating in Roger Water's "The Wall" performance in Berlin in 1990, and being the first ensemble to perform a concert in the Capitol Building in Washington DC. In 2010, their experimental collaborations extended to out of this world, when Paddy Moloney's whistle and Matt Molloy's flute travelled with NASA astronaut, Cady Coleman, to the International Space Station. Although their early following was purely a folk audience, the range and variation of their music and accompanying musicians quickly captured a much broader audience, elevating their status to the likeness of fellow Irish band, U2. In Ireland they have been involved in many major occasions, such as Pope John Paul II's visit to Ireland in 1979 when they performed to an audience of over 1.3 million, and in 2011 as part of the historic visit to Ireland of HRH Queen Elizabeth II. In 2012, marking The Chieftains' 50th Anniversary, they were awarded the inaugural National Concert Hall Lifetime Achievement Award at a gala event in Philadelphia hosted by The American Ireland Fund "in recognition of their tremendous contribution to the music industry worldwide and the promotion of the best of Irish culture." 2012 marked the group's 50th anniversary, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, The Chieftains once again invited friends from all musical styles to collaborate on their latest album, Voice of Ages. Featuring some of modern music's fastest rising artists (Bon Iver, The Decemberists and Paolo Nutini among them), this album is proof that their music transcends not only stylistic and traditional boundaries, but generational as well. The Chieftains are never afraid to shock purists and push genre boundaries and the trappings of fame have not altered The Chieftains' love of, and loyalty to, their roots however- they are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall. After fifty years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains' music remains as fresh and relevant as when they first began.

Queer Trash Presents: Brutal Measures, Keijaun Thomas, Straight Panic - ISSUE Project Room
March 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

For their first program as 2018 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow, Queer Trash is delighted to present Brutal Measures (Lydia Lunch + Weasel Walter), Keijaun Thomas, and Straight Panic. Queer Trash cruises in relentless pursuit of bodily disruptions and sonic deviance against avant-normativity; the collective promises an evening of unhinged sound, linguistic onslaught, and remorseless rupture of the structures of power and subjugation in which everyone is implicated. Straight Panic is the queer nihilist power electronics project of Thomas Boettner, formerly from Minneapolis, MN and now based in New Orleans, LA. Against assimilation, against ease, Straight Panic matches the intensity of queer rage and desire to richly layered sound, drawing on sources such as the writing of Dennis Cooper to the atrocities of the current "gay purge" in Chechneya. In her performances, Brooklyn-based Keijaun Thomas embodies a multitude of persona in careful manipulations of objects and sound. Like a priestess of the marginalized, she inverts the social order to center and uphold the denigrated lives and labor on which our society depends. With powerful transformations of seemingly ordinary materials, Keijaun's performances are saturated with meaning. In her words, she is "reimagining, reworking, and reconstructing notions of visibility, hyper-visibility, passing, trespassing, eroticized, and marginalized representations of blackness in relation to disposable labor, domestic service, and notions of thingness amongst materials." Brutal Measures is a collaboration between Lydia Lunch and Weasel Walter, two innovators of the most challenging, aggressive, and uncompromising nether regions of no wave, free jazz, electroacoustic composition, and spoken word. Lydia's body of work has always been confrontational, from the band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks formed in 1976 to the current group Retrovirus, her Cinema of Transgression collaborations with Richard Kern in the 1980's, to her longstanding history of infamous spoken word performances. Lydia serves an acerbic and viciously uncompromising assault on patriarchy, sexuality, perversity, and the status quo.

Through fun games, stories, songs and movements, children engage with rich musical and cultural heritage – from Tito Puente to Mozart, Willie Nelson to Herbie Hancock.

Inter Arma, Anicon, ASEETHE, Vile Creature - Saint Vitus
March 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

INTER ARMA's music resists generalization and categorization, but if there's one thing that's consistently true, it's that the VA quintet possesses an unparalleled sense of scope. Few artists today accurately convey the complexity that INTER ARMA (Latin for "in times of war") does - the band creates terrible and often hauntingly beautiful portraits of humanity through music that is deeply organic yet still mystical and modern. INTER ARMA are just as committed to the live circuit as they are to their records: the band has performed extensively throughout Europe and the US, sharing the stage with the likes of Kylesa, Baroness, Cough, Royal Thunder, Black Tusk, Ulcerate, Russian Circles, Windhand, and dozens of others. INTER ARMA's raw, uninhibited approach merges doom metal, psychedelic sludge, black metal, prog and more, and over the course of the last ten years, has established the band as a uniquely innovative force in contemporary extreme metal.

The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

The Cover of Life - Gene Frankel Theatre
March 10, 2018 - New York

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

Afternoon Men, Patrick Duffy Band, Cici Fields - The Bowery Electric
March 10, 2018 - New York

Afternoon Men is a five-piece, New York-based rock band. Their songs cycle through a range of styles you might find on a jukebox—Sinatra to Springsteen, bar rock to electro-pop—but these influences are as much a narrative force as a part of their sound. Overarching stories link one song to the next, featuring a reappearing cast of characters whose taste in music plays the starring role in how they kill their time. The band consisting of brothers Patrick (lead guitar and vocals), Thomas (bass and backing vocals) with accomplished percussionist and rock drummer Adam Forman, deliver a rock jam band style with traditional lyrics and song writing. Patrick grew up in South Salem, NY listening to 70's classic rock, New Wave, 80's pop, the Grateful Dead and Phish. Under the influence of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Trey Anastasio, and Derek Trucks, Patrick puts it all into the cement mixer and spits out dangerous guitar playing and vocals which will make you feel like he started playing in the womb

Through March 10, 2018 - Upper East Side

Pigeonwing Dance performs Bewilderness (2016) inspired by the writings of author and activist Rebecca Solnit. A response to Solnit's writings on community, disaster and hope, Bewilderness is a dreamlike puzzle of interlocking stories that dissolve into sinuous, detailed movement and architectural groupings. By turns dark, comic and hopeful, the work suggests magnetic connections between members of a mysterious community. Musical selections include contemporary settings of arias by Henry Purcell. The company also presents a new creation exploring pattern formation in the natural world. In it, the supple and articulate Pigeonwing dancers will move through a sequence of increasingly intricate spirals, waves and vortices, all of it inspired by the simple rules governing some of nature's most elegant patterns.

March 10, 2018 - Garden City

Join the inquisitive, lovable little monkey Curious George, star of books, movies and the award-winning PBS television show in this delightful new musical from Theatreworks USA.

This production is recommended for grades Pre-K through 3 and their families. All–You-Can-Eat Meatball Day comes just once a year. George waited all month for that day, a day almost bigger than his birthday! On Meatball Day, George helped his friend Chef Pisghetti cook some delicious meatballs and serve them to the hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd vanished! Something was keeping people away. Something pretty big. And that “something” was Phinneas T. Lightspeed and his speedy Meatballs O’Matic machine. In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more. Determined to help his friend, George goes on a mission to enter the Chef’s meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest…in Rome. With every swing and flip, George takes the audience through a fun-filled adventure in which he learns more about Rome…and meatballs…and the “secret ingredient” to cooking!

Queer Trash Presents: Brutal Measures (Lydia Lunch + Weasel Walter), Keijaun Thomas, Straight Panic - Issue Project Room
March 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

For their first program as 2018 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow, Queer Trash is delighted to present Brutal Measures (Lydia Lunch + Weasel Walter), Keijaun Thomas, and Straight Panic. Queer Trash cruises in relentless pursuit of bodily disruptions and sonic deviance against avant-normativity; the collective promises an evening of unhinged sound, linguistic onslaught, and remorseless rupture of the structures of power and subjugation in which everyone is implicated. Straight Panic is the queer nihilist power electronics project of Thomas Boettner, formerly from Minneapolis, MN and now based in New Orleans, LA. Against assimilation, against ease, Straight Panic matches the intensity of queer rage and desire to richly layered sound, drawing on sources such as the writing of Dennis Cooper to the atrocities of the current "gay purge" in Chechneya. In her performances, Brooklyn-based Keijaun Thomas embodies a multitude of persona in careful manipulations of objects and sound. Like a priestess of the marginalized, she inverts the social order to center and uphold the denigrated lives and labor on which our society depends. With powerful transformations of seemingly ordinary materials, Keijaun's performances are saturated with meaning. In her words, she is "reimagining, reworking, and reconstructing notions of visibility, hyper-visibility, passing, trespassing, eroticized, and marginalized representations of blackness in relation to disposable labor, domestic service, and notions of thingness amongst materials."

Project Grand Slam - Club Groove NYC
March 10, 2018 - New York

Project Grand Slam is an acclaimed Fusion band, led by bassist/leader/composer Robert Miller, combining the power and beat of rock with the complexity and improvisation of jazz, with a jam band sensibility. In November 2015 PGS opened for Scott Weiland (formerly of Stone Temple Pilots) at the Gramercy Theater in NYC. In May 2016 the band opened for 4-time Grammy Award nominee Boney James at the Bergen Performing Arts Center in NJ. In July 2016 the band will be the featured performer at the Kirby Center For The Performing Arts in PA. PGS continues to play at the better clubs in NYC including a monthly residency at The Groove. In August 2016 the band will release its new album – "The Queen's Carnival" - featuring nine original tunes written by Robert that are rich in texture and diverse in feel, while still staying true to the PGS sound. Plus Robert's totally re-imagined cover of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" (feat. Lucy Woodward on vocals). As Robert says, "The new album is the work that I've been building towards my entire career. It truly captures the two musical genres that have informed my composing and playing – rock and jazz. I consider this a breakthrough album for me and the band." PGS's prior album – "Made In New York" – was released in September 2015 and featured two singles, "New York City Groove" and "Fire" (Robert's re-imagined version of the Jimi Hendrix classic). Both singles featured 2013 "The Voice" semi-finalist Kat Robichaud on vocals. The band and Kat also filmed videos for "Groove" and "Fire" that have been viewed over 150,000 times to date. The reviews of the album and "Fire" were incredible, with words like "fantastic", "damn fine album" and "hard to resist" for the album, and "superb", "brilliant", "excellent", "stunning" and "unbelievable gem" for "Fire". Robert originally formed the band in 2007. PGS's first two celebrated CDs, "Play" (2008) and "Spring Dance" (2012), had two top radio singles – "The Captain Of Her Heart" (feat. Judie Tzuke on vocals) from Play, and "Catch You Later" from Spring Dance. The band also had a featured role in the hit NBC-TV series "Lipstick Jungle" starring Brooke Shields and Kim Raver, with five of the band's tunes featured in the soundtrack.

Pushing dragons back off the edge and filling in gaps on the maps." ECAD 2018 will provide guests with a look at the new frontiers being driven by that insatiable curiosity in action, the technologies being developed which push the boundaries of the human experience, and the indomitable spirit of those who continue to push dragons off the map.

Omd, Ggoolldd - Terminal 5
March 10, 2018 - New York

'The Punishment of Luxury' is the new album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), the pioneering synth-pop group – founded almost 40 years ago by two teenage Kraftwerk fans from the Wirral – whose early albums 'Architecture and Morality' (1981) and 'Dazzle Ships' (1983) would shape the dominant sound of that decade. Alongside the Human League and Gary Numan, OMD mapped out the musical landscape of the time and helped to mint this new genre with hits such as 'Enola Gay', 'Electricity' and 'Souvenir'. Signed first to Factory Records and then snapped up by Virgin, the duality inherent in OMD was plain to see from the start, as Peter Saville's minimalist artwork belied the warmth of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys' timeless songwriting. Described by The Quietus as ""not just one of the best synth bands ever –they are one of the best bands ever", OMD's influence has become ubiquitous. The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD's DNA.

JJ Grey & Mofro - The Capitol Theatre
March 10, 2018 - Port Chester

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless. Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until Ol' Glory has a studio record captured the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey live performance. "I wanted that crucial lived-in feel," Grey says of Ol' Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room. Despite a redoubtable stage presence, Grey does get performance anxiety—specifically, when he's suspended 50 feet above the soil of his pecan grove, clearing moss from the upper trees. "The tops of the trees are even worse," he laughs, "say closer to 70, maybe even 80 feet. I'm not phobic about heights, but I don't think anyone's crazy about getting up in a bucket and swinging all around. I wanted to fertilize this year but didn't get a chance. This February I will, about two tons—to feed the trees."

To Fire and Surprise: Making New Poems with R.A. Villanueva - Poets House
March 10, 2018 - New York

Natalie Diaz begins a recent craft talk, "Building The Emotional Image," considering the interplay between images, story, and history in her poems, reflecting on how her images "mostly come from my home, the place where my brain was formed and where all the little electrical circuits in my brain learned to fire." In this course, we'll follow her lead, exploring the infinite possibilities of our own obsessions, interests, and memories. Each session will be devoted to generative writing, the creation of new work, and chances to discuss the surprising drafts that emerge. And to illuminate and complicate our thinking, we will read a dynamic array of contemporary poems (Aracelis Girmay, Patricia Smith, Vahni Capildeo, Anne Carson, Sarah Howe, sam sax, Layli Long Soldier, Fady Joudah, and more). Open to experiments, we will unsettle habits and find inspiration in the unconventional.

March 10, 2018 - New York

Bandita is a 3 piece (vocals/guitar, bass, and drums) hard rock and alternative metal band in their early and mid 20's based in Manhattan, NY. It was founded in May of 2015 when guitarist/vocalist Sean Hanley, after a series of frustrating months spent "band hopping", began to write stuff that he hoped would break the genre molds of "rock" and "metal", both vintage and modern. He started to experiment with practically every style and influence under the sun with bassist Jacob Rose, whether it be funk-driven bass riffs, heavy blues metal guitar riffs, or prog/djent based alternate time signatures. Groupie is a female-fronted punk band based in Brooklyn. The three-piece group released their self-titled debut EP in early 2017 on Brooklyn-based label Fluorescent Thought, and is releasing their sophomore EP in the spring. Groupie's catchy, politically-charged songs explore modern issues such as feminism, immigration, mental health, and digital alienation. Their post-punk inspired track Poor You addresses the issue of sexual assault while their upcoming track Dalejos features their tri-lingual roots and immigrant experience. For fans of Sleater-Kinney, Priests, Downtown Boys, Patti Smith, and The Breeders.

The Burns will make you laugh, make you cry, make you face-palm, and make you wish you were having as much fun as those 4 dudes on stage. Like what you're hearing? Check out The Burns first full length Splenderson on all streaming platforms - or come out to a show!

Output Grayscale | Rødhåd/ Kobosil/ Monoloc at Output and Sven Weisemann (Open to Close) - Output - The Panther Room
March 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

Max Kobosil, born, raised and based in Berlin, discovered Techno when it emerged from sub culture into modernity. In a short period of time Kobosil left his mark on Berlin by filling a formerly blank space with subtly hypnotic synth sounds, monochromatic textures and ambient excursions, and especially the darker, more powerful variant of Techno. Through his own RK imprint or releases on MDR, Unterton and Ostgut Ton he has built himself a reputation as a producer with a clear focus on straightforward yet multi-faceted tracks. And of course he has proven himself being a versatile DJ (eventually becoming a resident at Berghain) by skillfully combining new Techno records with genre classics, some acid, indie and industrial tracks, while adding pressure to his expressive and emotive sets at the same time. His debut album 'We Grow, You Decline' sees him entering new musical territory and delving even deeper into influences from Noise, Electronic Body Music and of course present-day Techno.

Escape-Ism - Berlin
March 10, 2018 - New York

Introduction to Escape-ism shouldn't only be reviewed in the music press but in the "world affairs" column of a conspiracy-minded newspaper, on a hot-rod review TV show, or possibly at an important conference by a renowned astrophysicist. It's that important! Why? Because it's the first "solo" record by Ian Svenonius—of groups The Make-Up, Chain & the Gang, The Nation of Ulysses, XYZ, Weird War, etc. and author of underground bestsellers such as The Psychic Soviet, Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group, and Censorship Now!!—and as such, it's profound, prophetic, perverse, and poetic… It's introverted glitter, violence against the state, obsessive desire; it stomps on convention, shreds constitutions, clobbers pre-conceived notions of what a record can be.

Tenth Intervention's Silent House: the Docks of New York - Videology Bar & Cinema
March 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

"It was with The Docks of New York that von Sternberg finally perfected the calorie-laden imagery for which he is so justly revered." – Guy Maddin We're partnering with musical duo Tenth Intervention to bring you this classic von Sternberg romance with a live score! Roughneck stoker Bill Roberts (George Bancroft) gets into all sorts of trouble during a brief shore leave when he falls hard for Mae (Betty Compson), a wise and weary dance-hall girl, in Josef von Sternberg's evocative portrait of lower-class waterfront folk. Fog-enshrouded cinematography by Harold Rosson (The Wizard of Oz), expressionist set design by Hans Dreier (Sunset Boulevard), and sensual performances by Bancroft and Compson make this one of the legendary director's finest works, and one of the most exquisitely crafted films of its era. Josef von Sternberg. 1928. 75 minutes. Tenth Intervention presents contemporary music in New York City. Through collaborations with composers, musicians, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers, they produce programs that expand the reach of music to be diverse, pioneering, and socially conscious.

Brooklyn Circle - Smalls Live
March 10, 2018 - New York City

Stacy's concept is original and inspiring. He is completely unpredictable and doesn't bore you with stock licks. In fact he doesn't bog himself down with just playing chord changes, and he plays ideas. He's a true improviser. Eric Reed, pianist & composer Stacy Dillard, raised in Muskegon Heights, Michigan, started playing the saxophone at a rather late age. In his hometown, there isn't much music happening, but only Robert Moore, Stacy's band instructor, and a host of close friends. Athletics was a big part of his life, leading to the late start on the instrument. Stacy attended college at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to study with Dr. William Denza, Jim Smith, Chris Berg, and Lenard Moses. Very quickly, Dillard acquired the necessary knowledge that would soon put his name out on the local scene. It was a run-in with Wynton Marsalis in Dayton, Ohio that would turn his attention to the New York Scene. After graduation, Stacy took the act to Cincinnati, where he stayed for a short time and made his first recording appearance with Mike Wade on trumpet, drummer Melvin Broach and pianist William Menefield. Maturation was very rapid, finally leading the way to New York.

Danh Vo Selects: The Exorcist (1973) - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
March 10, 2018 - New York

Hand-selected by the artist to accompany his exhibition Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, this film series screens on Saturdays during the month of March in the New Media Theater. The Exorcist (1973), dir. William Friedkin, 122 min. "[The Exorcist] was shown to Vo by his horror-film-obsessed mother at the age of seven, when it no doubt made a terrifyingly indelible impression. The film's interrogation of religious faith and doubt, its depiction of the appropriated and dislocated body, and its themes of parental nurture and neglect can all be similarly traced in the artist's work." – exhibition curator Katherine Brinson One of the most profitable horror movies ever made and the first example of the genre to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, this tale of an exorcism is based loosely on reported actual events. It centers on a young girl's bizarre and distressing behavior, which is identified by a local priest as a demonic possession. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert to help with the difficult job.

Bhi Bhiman - Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall)
March 10, 2018 - New York

Bhi Bhiman’s songs traverse R&B, power pop, socially conscious folk, and even hints of country and rockabilly. His sweetly lilting voice conjures the late Curtis Mayfield, while his insights into the human condition recall Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan at their best. He has covered Dire Straits’s “Walk of Life” (a performance immortalized in an Apple Watch ad), sung his soulful “Moving to Brussels” in a video with comic Keegan-Michael Key, and explores political and personal issues in deeply human songs that are witty and wise. Hear him and become a fan for life.

Kat Wright, Woolly Mammals - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
March 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as "a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse". Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There's soul flowing in and out of her rock 'n' roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music's sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache's apology. It's funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.

Pete Lee, Marina Franklin, Yannis Pappas, Keith Robinson, Ron Bennington, and More! - The Stand
March 10, 2018 - New York

Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that's because it's impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central's Premium Blend. That same night, he met his future wife, and she made him move to Manhattan. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC's Last Comic Standing finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera As The World Turns, lasting two episodes! At the end of 2008 he then shot his own Comedy Central half Hour Special, which earned him a "cult" following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next four years at 500 colleges across the country.

An ambitious woman treads a dangerous path as she attempts to crash the corporate boys' club in this timely feminist drama. Emmanuelle (César nominee Emmanuelle Devos) is a successful energy company executive tapped by a feminist lobbying group to step into the soon-to-be-open CEO position at France's national water company—a move that would make her the first woman to lead a major French corporation. But first, Emmanuelle must navigate a treacherous minefield of sexism, blackmail, and a smear campaign designed to squash her. Director Tonie Marshall (Venus Beauty Institute) blends twisty boardroom intrigue with an impassioned message about the need for female solidarity in the workplace. U.S. Premiere

The Sower - Le semeur - The Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 10, 2018 - New York

In the midst of Napoleon's 1851 coup d'état, a remote French village is depleted of all its men, leaving only the women to tend to the fields while wondering what became of their husbands, sons, fathers, and brothers. Into this matriarchal society wanders a stranger (Alban Lenoir), his presence stirring up both political suspicion and carnal desire among the young women, who view him as their last chance to repopulate the community. Through bucolic, golden-hued images that recall the paintings of Jean-François Millet, director Marine Francen weaves a quietly provocative, fable-like tale that rewrites its historical moment from a female perspective. U.S. Premiere

Tomorrow and Thereafter - Demain et tous les autres jours - The Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 10, 2018 - New York

It's rare to see a mother-daughter portrait as idiosyncratic and personal as the one at the heart of the new film from acclaimed actress-director Noémie Lvovsky. She stars as an erratic Parisian mother steadily losing her grip on reality as her young daughter (impressive newcomer Luce Rodriguez) escapes into a fantastical world of her imagination: holding conversations with her pet owl, giving a biology class skeleton a proper burial, and even creating her own Christmas when her mom no shows. Dedicated to Lvovsky's own mother, Tomorrow and Thereafter is alternately enchanting and cathartic as it explores how the spirit of childhood bumps up against the often-bitter realities of adulthood. With Mathieu Amalric. U.S. Premiere

OMD - Terminal 5
March 10, 2018 - New York

'The Punishment of Luxury' is the new album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), the pioneering synth-pop group – founded almost 40 years ago by two teenage Kraftwerk fans from the Wirral – whose early albums 'Architecture and Morality' (1981) and 'Dazzle Ships' (1983) would shape the dominant sound of that decade. Alongside the Human League and Gary Numan, OMD mapped out the musical landscape of the time and helped to mint this new genre with hits such as 'Enola Gay', 'Electricity' and 'Souvenir'. Signed first to Factory Records and then snapped up by Virgin, the duality inherent in OMD was plain to see from the start, as Peter Saville's minimalist artwork belied the warmth of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys' timeless songwriting. Described by The Quietus as ""not just one of the best synth bands ever –they are one of the best bands ever", OMD's influence has become ubiquitous. The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD's DNA. Now they return with their thirteenth album 'The Punishment of Luxury', a daring collection of stylish synth-pop and masterful song craft that sees OMD edge out of their comfort zone without compromising their integrity. "It's almost like we've gone back to being teenagers after all these years," says Andy. "We just do whatever we want and there's no record company to tell us what we can or can't do." The album was recorded in their respective studios in Merseyside (Andy) and London (Paul) with the final mixes handled by both at Paul's. In the past their songs were fuelled by nai?vety and excitement, this time the mood is reflective and sanguine, yet the youthful energy that courses through OMD remains the same. 'On this album we have managed to make beautiful things out of noises and repetitive patterns', explains Andy. 'The trouble is, we just cant help but write a catchy melody!' The album takes its name from an 1891 painting by the Italian divisionist Giovanni Segantini that hangs in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, where it caught Andy's eye. Divisionism is a technique of painting similar to pointillism, and Segantini's painting, 'The Punishment of Luxury', depicts two women, condemned for having ideas "above their station", floating in a limbo of purgatory in an Alpine landscape. "We appropriated the title for something else," explains Andy. "In a nutshell: most people in the western world are now materially better off than their predecessors ever were and yet we are unhappier because we have replaced the imagined order of religion and royal decree with the imagined order of marketing and commercial propaganda. So everybody thinks they need more stuff and now we have loads of things that we don't need because we've been persuaded we do. Everybody is miserably unhappy and that is the punishment of luxury."

Then They Came for Me - ICP Museum
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II examines a dark episode in US history when, in the name of national security, the government incarcerated 120,000 citizens and legal residents during World War II without due process or other constitutional protections to which they were entitled. Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, set in motion the forced removal and imprisonment of all people of Japanese ancestry (citizens and non-citizens alike) living on or near the West Coast. This exhibition features works by renowned photographers Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others documenting the eviction of Japanese Americans and permanent Japanese residents from their homes as well as their subsequent lives in incarceration camps. Also included are photographs by incarcerated photographer Toyo Miyatake. This timely exhibition reexamines this history and presents new research telling the stories of the individuals whose lives were upended due to racial bigotry.

Advanced Track Program - ICP School, Rita K. Hillman Gallery
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

2017 Student Exhibition The photographers in fl?an strip away the skin of societal conformity and conventions that we succumb to in the realization of ourselves, revealing the sensitive flesh both of which we are and of those we love. This exhibition flays off the outer coverings that protect us from the dangers that self-identification, inner exploration, and outer vulnerability expose us to. Fl?an relies on codes and cues of society, class, culture, and ideology as a puzzle of pieces in the construction of their meaning. Images in this show explore the way place can invoke our susceptibility and how our bodies are our limitations. The skin, the very thing that protects us from the world we navigate, is stripped away. Through various explorations in materials and processes, these images address the most private parts of our beings, the relationships we carry through our lives, and the world in which we live. This exhibition showcases work by nine recent graduates of the International Center of Photography's Advanced Track Program. Students enrolled in ICP's Part-Time Programs participate in a series of unique seminars exploring ideas and materials and create comprehensive bodies of work. Graduates from these programs have continued on as working artists, attended prestigious graduate schools, and been awarded grants and scholarships, including a Fulbright Scholarship, along with many other recognitions of their work. This exhibition is curated by Ben Gest, Part-Time Programs coordinator, and Jean-Marie Casbarian, faculty. In memory of Harry Sandler, whose impact on each of us will not be forgotten.

Rebirth Brass Band - Blue Note Jazz Club
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Whether seen on HBO's Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. "Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to," says The New York Times, "but it's more like a party than a machine. It's a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they're doing, anyone can cut loose." In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.

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.

My Name Is Rachel Corrie - The Secret Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - Long Island

Everyone must feel safe. Safe to be themselves, physically safe, safe to say what they think, just safe Hope. Courage. Curiosity. Fear. Disappointment. Disbelief. Rage. Love. Only a few of the many emotions coloring the last months of an unusual American girls life. In 2003, the 23-year-old Rachel Corrie was lead to Palestine by her profound sense of justice and empathy. She was an innate activist, human rights fighter and an outspoken peace seeker. Some say she was fearless, and humane. Others claim that she was simply reckless and a trouble-maker. Yet her story is not really about tunnels, politics and weapon-smuggling. She wanted to use her voice to raise questions and prevent walls from being built, while she eventually discovered the real world and herself. By her writings she opens a window to the world of everyday people forced to live in warzones, constantly in the fragile territory between life and death. And who without their notion become heroes by caring, sharing and understanding. On both sides of the border. Rachel saw the beauty of simplicity in times when we all tend to forget about it.

Platonov, or A Play with No Name - New Ohio Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: Sarah Thea. February 17 – March 11, 2018 Performance schedule: Sat, Feb 17, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 18, 3:00pm Thu, Feb 22, 7:00pm Fri, Feb 23, 8:00 pm Sat, Feb 24, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 25, 3:00pm Mon, Feb 26, 7:00pm Fri, March 2, 8:00pm Sat, March 3, 8:00pm Sun, March 4, 3:00pm Mon, March 5, 7:00pm Thu, March 8, 7:00 pm Fri, March 9, 8:00pm Sat, March 10, 3:00pm and 8:00pm Sun, March 11, 3:00pm

Melvin Vines & the Harlem Jazz Machine - Paris Blues
Through March 12, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through March 12, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

Installation - Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 13, 2018 - Queens

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.

Paul's sidewalk drips have been captivating New Yorkers for over 25 years and have endured with lasting popularity. The recognizability of his work is a testament to Richard's creativity in and out of the gallery and as such has earned him accolades in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Vogue, the Huffington Post, Architectural Digest, and Time Magazine.

At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson.

Real People. Real Lives. Women Immigrants in NY - Queens Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - Flushing

Each immigrant story is a combination of determination, hope, and challenges. It is more important than ever to share our stories; our stories as immigrants, our stories as women, stories through which we can understand better, and celebrate, the diversity and commonality of human experience.

The exhibit features art and fashion photographs of 16 young immigrant women in iconic NYC spots and neighborhoods, together with audio recordings of their stories and video montages. It shows a nuanced and multi-layered picture of the immigrant women who make NYC their home, of the barriers and isolation they experience, and of the hopes, dreams, and talents they bring with them.

The exhibit seeks to reduce misconceptions and prejudice about the faces and voices of immigrant women, and aspires to raise public awareness and create positive dialogue about immigrants, and about women.

It is also important, in the current political climate and times in the United States, to give a platform for immigrant women to share their perspective, as immigrants, and as women, about their future in the United States, and the future of the country itself.

 

Tom Leaver - McKenzie Fine Art
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

The imagery in Tom Leaver's paintings is entirely imaginary. The paintings are recognizable as landscapes, but they do not depict any specific place the artist has seen nor are they based on photographs of any topography or locale. Instead, the artist chooses landscape imagery as a vehicle to express emotional, psychological and spiritual states of mind. Leaver creates his paintings using his gloved hands, applying the oil paint in sweeps of his palm or the side of his hand, or in fingertip daubs. The only brush he uses is for the application of turpentine, and a rag is employed to pull the solvent through the paint or wipe it away. Overall, there is sfumato-like softness in the paint application, a change from the more defined and energetic mark-making of his previous body of work. There has also been a subtle and intuitive shift toward a subdued palette of varying brown and gold tonalities, offset by lighter passages in the sky above or bodies of water below. The gentle and atmospheric space Leaver produces in these new paintings is deep, mysterious, and seemingly endless. Leaver cites as influences Chinese landscape painting, which is suggestive rather than literal, and Japanese enso painting, comprised of lone circular forms, often with no defined starting point. He notes that his own paintings always indicate a passage, also without a clear beginning or ending. Turner's later works, with their unresolved quality (but not their strong color) are also influential. However, Leaver's spiritual practice informs his work most fully, in the way the paintings are an expression of being present-minded in the action of creation. He notes, "I was never taught linear perspective, color theory, form and shadow, or even how to mix paints. My teacher would say, just paint. When I began practicing yoga I was told to just practice, all was coming. I started sitting zazen several years ago and my instruction was to just sit and watch my breath. The three practices have become one daily ritual, feeding into and off of each other. This latest body of work is a contin

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.

Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career. But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in?

Immersive installations and more than 100 artifacts and images—drawn from New-York Historical's archives and several private collections—bring to life the bohemian scene and its energetic activist spirit. The exhibition is curated by Joanna Scutts, Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's History, and Sarah Gordon, Senior Postdoctoral Marie Zimmermann Legacy Fellow in Women's History, under the direction of Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History at the New-York Historical Society, and is on view in the Joyce B.

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures - Museum of Chinese in America
Through March 25, 2018 - Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

Through March 26, 2018 - New York

The result was a darkly comedic drama, "Gabriel: A Polemic," in which four tightly-bonded women, confounded by issues of abortion and free will, are divided unexpectedly by a crisis of faith at their weekly dinner. The Drilling Company, which developed the play in a series of readings and workshops since 2014, will mount its world premiere March 9 to 26 at North of History, a new performance/gallery space founded by Gene Kaufman that is located at 445 Columbus Ave. (between 81st and 82nd Streets).

Cathode Love Presents - Music Box Theater
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Cathode Love is a book and companion LP featuring carefully curated writings and musical content focused around a central, celebratory impulse of suggestive, decadent, and symbolically-charged works in film, theory, visual art, poetry, fiction and essays, all tapping on the door of a new, synaesthetic sensibility. Cathode Love is wishing to move us toward a new aesthetic culture, one that resides "away from the mundane reality" (and certainly from banal art). An irregular almanac of irregular pleasures, an untimely messenger, a hope for catching a glimpse of light in the mirror of impossible beauty across shattered art-forms...Cathode Love, in its book/LP form, is published in the spirit of an aesthetic treatise of sorts. An exploratory document, and finally an accidental anthology of suggestions to run with. From the fiery intensity of Antonin Artaud's language of theater to the passionate elevation of sleaze to academic loftiness in Stephen Thrower's writings, this strange new collection of wild flowers if a trip to the jungle, not the zoo. Nothing is caged, all is free. And that is it's beauty. Cathode Love is, at the very least, a new window to actively "dream into" regarding expression and interpretation. From simply seeing "bad" films in a new light to high-minded semiotic theory, to spiritually profound synaesthetic experiences of art, it presents a case on its own accord. It simply is a vantage point, and needs to be observed. From the films of the language-shattering "fantastique" tradition, all the way to mystical essays on semiotics by Michel Leiris, Cathode Love is the framework of the mirror we can dream into.

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. 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.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

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.

The Low Road - The Public Theater
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring sixteen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.

In Practice: Another Echo - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's open call commissioning program for emerging artists. Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter's mission, In Practice provides new ways to discover the most innovative artwork, foster experimentation, and give participants the opportunity to develop and present new work. The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman and is curated by Allie Tepper, SculptureCenter's 2018 Curatorial Fellow. An echo suggests an interaction and a return: an emanation which hits a surface and reverberates as instantaneous memory — a powerful tool for envisioning and rewriting history in the present. The word "another" itself suggests recurrence, but with difference. In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed sociopolitical conditions, the artists in this exhibition project voice and language, and make use of responsive and vernacular materials. Rather than glance at the past with nostalgia, these artists share a preoccupation with the present moment: obscuring, adapting, and subverting surrounding signs and physical structures in order to witness, reinvent, and survive the often agitated terrain of contemporary life. Across their work, which encompasses sculpture, live sound, video, and drawing, questions persist about how the self, in the midst of deep inner-processing, can converse with the present. How do we, in an ailing and unaccommodating society, extend ourselves out into the world, particularly when what we need so often is sanctuary? Throughout the exhibition, symbols appear marked on walls, imprinted and pasted as if in the caves of Lascaux, or the walls of prisons where inmates inscribed their opposition to power. Cudelice Brazelton wields a heat gun with the grace of a barber, burning fade designs—an ancient vernacular carried on bodies across history—into the architecture of the building. Nobutaka Aozaki also collects a visual vernacular, in his case the graffiti tags made on USPS label 228 stickers that he has found stuck onto surfaces throughout New York City. Other artists' practices involve reading body language made in response to conditions of imposition. Juliana Cerqueira Leite looks to the media, in particular the gestures of reporters and civilians sharing their experiences of humanitarian crises, focusing on moments when the body attempts to reenact the experience of an event that is beyond their agency, which she echoes through the movements of her body in clay. Carmen Winant amasses instructional images of women engaged in self-defense from a large archive that she began, subconsciously, during the 2016 presidential election campaign. Revisionist encounters with existing monuments concern artists such as Baseera Khan, who addresses a Richard Serra sculpture installed outside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, TX, from under an "acoustic sound blanket." Khan—a queer femme Muslim-American disinherited from Serra's lineage—presents footage of the event in a Karaoke Spiritual Center of Love, set to music chosen according to a protective "logic of armor," by artists such as Rihanna, Bibi Bourelly, and Kevin Abstract. Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall's installation considers the current plight of American immigration, by revisiting the paths that Blacks and early twentieth century Bengali sailors took to the United States, through the holds of slave ships and steamship boiler rooms. "The New Colossus"—the sonnet by Emma Lazarus engraved on the Statue of Liberty base—echoes through the installation: translated into Yoruba and Bengali, and set to traditional music by the artists' collaborators Moses Mabayoje and Monjula Datta. Lachell Workman and Courtney McClellan both cast a quiet, haunting eye on the iterative cycles of injustice that occur though the criminal justice system. Workman's abstract sculptural installation references the vernacular of the street-side memorial and RIP T-shirt, confronting us with a vision of human and environmental neglect, while a nearby slide projector casts a spotlight on the wall, the incessant churn of the slides, counting. Courtney McClellan exhibits a new video that examines the insidious relationship between performance and the law, through her ongoing study of the American Mock Trial Association, and the team at the University of Georgia where she teaches. Witnessing life-forms in moments of transition and growth preoccupies several of the artists in the exhibition. Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau assemble a series of leather totems—"muted bodies" that push against their surroundings with quiet, expressive force, and look to nature's slowest processes, the growth of fungus, and foreground touch and duration as reparative, rather than reactionary modes for weathering a long, slow process of healing. Jules Gimbrone creates work that asserts the presence of the flexible, nuanced body, in particular the sounding of queer subjects that are regularly silenced in the public sphere, through an ecology of transmorphic, responsive materials and audio. Jon Wang presents an immersive, live video and sound environment that meditates on the metamorphic lifecycle of silkworms, inviting viewers into the artist's intimate pursuit of queer architecture, psychosexual resistance, and radical transformation. Carey Denniston presents videos edited from an ongoing FaceTime dialogue with Avery, her thirteen-year-old niece and a digital native living in Eastern Washington. The videos are portraits of "a space of processing" that moves through seemingly banal, but honest, conversations about friendship, to Avery's digestion of current events. The In Practice program offers emerging artists curatorial and financial support to create new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. Artists are selected through a multi-stage process after submitting work through an open call. Past In Practice participants include: Korakrit Arunanondchai, Fia Backström, A. K. Burns, Michael DeLucia, Aleksandra Domanovic, Essex Olivares, Brendan Fernandes, Samara Golden, Ryan Johnson, Joanna Malinowska, Justin Matherly, Virginia Overton, Rachel Rose, Xaviera Simmons.

Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

New York City-based artist Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez' solo exhibition at SculptureCenter features a newly commissioned video work titled The Maid, 2018, as well as additional newly produced video and photographic work. The Maid follows a selection of American artist Sherrie Levine's Newborn sculptures throughout the course of a day in various residences, private and institutional, from New York to Los Angeles. Levine made the works in crystal and black cast glass in the early 1990s, molding them after Constantin Brancusi's marble and bronze sculptures of the same name from 1915 and 1920. By featuring not only Levine's sculptures, already appropriations of another artist's work, but also capturing their contemporary environments, Rodriguez engages the conditions and settings in which art circulates, proposing that the futures of artworks are inherently speculative. Taking its title from a 1913 short story by Robert Walser about a devoted maid searching for a lost child who has been put under her care, the film similarly follows its subject toward a resolution that is more cyclical than gratifying. After searching around the world for the child for over twenty years, the maid in Walser's story finally finds her in Paris—and immediately dies from joy. The enigmatic story becomes a parable that frames the exhibition, as it tackles the complexity of care-based relationships forged through time, and follows Rodriguez' ongoing artistic exploration of subjecthood. Another new work, The Girls, 1997-2018, revisits hours of Hi8 video footage captured in a Chinatown park in the 1990s, when Rodriguez moved to the neighborhood as an artist in her twenties. Catching the eye of several young girls playing outside, Rodriguez trains her lens on them for an extended duration. The Girls crystalizes the proto-digital era the artist was working in and casts the children—now young adults—as unwitting protagonists who mark the passage of time. The video further captures a moment in a neighborhood that has since undergone radical transformation by developers and real- estate markets, as well as a generation that was on the cusp of new technologies that would make the visual documentation of everyday life an integral aspect of living. In addition, Rodriguez has produced a series of silver gelatin prints, All the Best Memories are Hers, 2018, which serve as "portraits" of embryos taken with an EmbryoScope. The resulting images are created from a hybrid of digital and analogue techniques. Whether used for assisted reproduction or stem-cell research, the embryo holds a legally fraught status between "person" and "property"as its regenerative potential is increasingly advanced by biotech industries. Together, the works speak to notions of time: suspended, potential, and actualized. By placing technologically mediated biological time alongside the proposed eternal life of the art object, Rodriguez finds momentary intersections in the disparate qualities and conditions of human and non-human "life," renewing meaning in both. Engaging the discourse of sculpture through the tools of cinema, The Maid follows the lives of 'related' artworks and recounts the conditional relationships between artist, artwork, and third-party agents (institution, caregiver, surrogate) in familial terms. Through this work, Rodriguez investigates how techniques of modern reproduction—both artistic and biological—are organized around property and kinship structures that are mediated through technology and the law. Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid is the artist's first solo museum exhibition in New York City. The exhibition is curated by Ruba Katrib and is accompanied by a color publication with essays by Katrib and Leah Pires. The exhibition will travel to MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge in spring 2018. Carissa Rodriguez (born 1970 in New York City; lives and works in New York City) has exhibited in New York and internationally since the mid-1990s. Recent solo exhibitions include the CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco (2016); Front Desk Apparatus, New York (2013); and Karma International, Zurich (2012). Recent major group exhibitions include MEDUSA, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2017); Finesse, Wallach Art Gallery, New York (2016); the Whitney Biennial, New York (2014); Theater Objects, LUMA Westbau, Zurich (2014); Pro-Choice, Fri Art, Fribourg, Switzerland (2013); ProBio, MoMA PS1, New York (2013); White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, ICA Philadelphia (2013); and Demanding Supplies, Kunstraum Lüneburg (2011). Early in her career, Rodriguez exhibited at American Fine Arts, Co., New York (1999 and 1996), and between 1999 and 2004, her project The Stand in collaboration with Jodi Busby traveled to several institutions internationally. Rodriguez received a BA from Eugene Lang College at the New School, New York in 1994, and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2001. She was a core member of Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York from 2004 to 2015. In 2013 Rodriguez was included in Better Homes at SculptureCenter, New York, curated by Ruba Katrib.

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist - Grey Art Gallery
Through April 06, 2018 - New York

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crown America - The Museum of Arts and Design
Through April 08, 2018 - Columbus Circle

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, and two sculptures exploring locations in Harlem and D.C. from William D. Williams’s 2012 Dresser Truck Project.

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time - Lesley Heller
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its energetic and gestural strokes. Torreano has exhibited his works extensively since the late 1960s including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Lesley Heller Gallery will be showcasing pieces from several bodies of work including new paintings influenced in part by the artists' time spent in Abu Dhabi—where he has been professor at NYU's Abu Dhabi campus for the past 7 years—as well as select pieces from his Gem Stones and Columns Series. Also on view will be a small selection of cast bronze gems. This will be the artist's first commercial solo show in New York in six years.

Kathy Acker: Who Wants to Be Human All the Time - Performance Space New York
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

In 1974, 26-year-old Kathy Acker met the conceptual artist Alan Sondheim, and suggested a collaboration that would allow them to get to the bottom of their sexual attraction by exchanging “as much information about ourselves as possible.” The result is Blue Tape, an hour-long, highly charged and confrontational truth-and-sex tape. It is remarkable for its braveness, as well as the insight it gives into a young Acker, about to find her voice on sexuality, intimacy, family, and power relations–all themes that consistently recur throughout her oeuvre. For this group exhibition, Blue Tape will be shown next to works by contemporary artists in dialog with Acker.

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.

Unpacking the Green Book - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation. Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, and two sculptures exploring locations in Harlem and D.C. from William D. Williams's 2012 Dresser Truck Project.

Founded in 1967, the National Chorale is the only professional choral company in the United States to have established and maintained an annual subscription season in the major New York City concert halls - 50 seasons in David Geffen Hall, with additional concerts at Carnegie Hall. 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. In addition to its David Geffen Hall series, the Chorale has toured nationally; presented 19 summer seasons of New York Festival of American Music Theater concerts in Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park and parks throughout the New York area; concert tours of New York State and New York City; vocal-instrumental chamber music series, and Concerts for Young People. The National Chorale is a leader in the development of choral singing in the New York City area. 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 Chorale also has a major Partnership with the NYC Professional Performing Arts High School in Manhattan, now in its 8th year, where a team of Chorale artist/teachers lead and develop the PPAS Vocal/Choral Program daily throughout the school year. The PPAS Choir will perform at Lincoln Center at each National Chorale performance during the 2017-2018 Season. Everett McCorvey is in his fourth season as the Artistic Director of the National Chorale. Vocal Excellence is a hallmark of Dr. McCorvey's work with professional choirs and with professional singers in concerts, masterclasses and workshops throughout the world. Over a span of over 35 years, Dr. McCorvey has engaged choirs and audiences on 4 continents in moving and dynamic experiences with his unique and committed interpretation of choral music of all genres. Dr. McCorvey is also the founder and Music Director of the American Spiritual Ensemble, a group of 24 professional singers performing spirituals and other compositions of African-American composers. He is a frequent advisory panelist and on-site reviewer for the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, D.C. and he has served on the Boards of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, National Opera Association and the Kentucky Arts Council. Dr. McCorvey has recently been invited to serve as a jurist on the Opera For All Voices initiative established by San Francisco Opera and Santa Fe Opera. The panel will review new operatic works for the industry with the goal of bringing new audiences to opera. On working with the National Chorale, Dr. McCorvey said "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of great choral singing with the National Chorale is indeed an honor and a privilege. It is my fervent hope that we can continue to sing, share and experience the goodness of humanity through music and learn of each other better through sharing in the arts."

The Bench, A Homeless Love Story - East Village Playhouse
Through April 13, 2018 - East Village

The Off-Broadway hit The Bench starring Robert Galinsky, directed by Jay O. Sanders, will extend its sold out run at The East Village Playhouse. This production is being presented by Golden Globe Nominated Chris Noth, Drama Desk, Obie, Olivier Award winner Barry Shabaka Henley and produced by Tony Award winning producer Terry Schnuck. Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDs in the 1980s. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery, from Daphne Arthur’s graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world re-known composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. It’s a unique and fresh solo theatre piece wherein one actor plays five characters, written in dialogue form, not traditional ‘monologue black out, monologue black out’ traditional solo theatre form.

Geometric Figurative Works: Art Exhibit - New York Hall of Science
Through April 14, 2018 - Corona

Karl Szilagi creates visual puzzles that use black and white geometric patterns to create figurative images. His art explores how we perceive patterns as both flat and three-dimensional at the same time. Most of the pieces are reverse mirror images – they appear the same when rotated 180 degrees.

Saint Clair Cemin: Oedipus - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculpture by Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin. This will be Cemin's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Oedipus takes on the renowned and influential Greek tragedy in order to interrogate the commanding force that human action can impose over what we perceive to be 'destiny.' Furthering the artist's investigation into the symbolism of ancient mythology, the exhibition presents a new, twenty-part work alongside three sculptures that act as monuments to the power of language and family. The exhibition is on view at the gallery's 293 Tenth Ave location between March 8 - April 14, 2018. The exhibition's title work, Oedipus, functions as its focal point and represents Cemin's first exploration into the form of narrative sculpture; a traditional folk practice popular in his native Northeastern Brazil. Twenty sculptural tableaux are cast in bronze, each presented on an individual plinth and placed in a spiral formation that curves into the center of the gallery. Tiresias, the blind prophet of Apollo, revered for his clairvoyance, takes the role of narrator and sits at the center of the configuration, posed gesticulating as though in the midst of a passionate retelling of the tragedy.

Alex Katz: Cut Outs - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of "Cut Outs" sculpture editioned by Alex Katz. "Cut Outs" demonstrates the artist's ongoing investigation into the properties of visual perception and the brilliance of surface as represented and rendered in the human figure. Since the 1950s, this dedication to figurative realism—informed by the scale and power of Abstract Expressionism and utilizing the graphic language of advertising that anticipated Pop—has marked Katz as one of the most inventive and technically achieved artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century. The hard exterior lines of the Cut Outs mirror their stern materiality. Realized in stainless or porcelain enamel coated steel, they underscore the artist's dedication to the flat, clean aesthetic for which he is famed. The exhibition brings together four works depicting Katz' wife Ada with one larger, multi-figure work.

Robert Polidori Fra Angelico / Opus Operantis - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the debut presentation of a selection of Robert Polidori's large-scale color photographs of the frescoes of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) contained in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence. The exhibition will be on view from March 8 through 14 April, 2018. In the canon of art history, these works, executed in the birthplace of the Renaissance, give us a full sense of the period's renewed commitment to the life of the spirit. Polidori visited the Convento di San Marco several times over the course of 2010 to capture the solemnity and sheer force of the frescoes and their reflection, through the depiction of the life of Christ, of the universal condition of mankind. The frescoes, painted by Fra Angelico between 1439 and 1444 for purposes of devotion and contemplation, extend beyond literal storytelling. They shift into the metaphysical realm, bringing the viewer into contact with the incidents of the life of Christ in the context of a newborn psychological and subjective interpretation. In this altered manner of worship lies the root of the changes in faith and understanding that were to follow during the span of the reawakening that we know as the Renaissance.

'The Adventures of Peter Rabbit' - Theatre Three
Through April 14, 2018 - Port Jefferson

Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-Tail, Benjamin Bunny, the McGregors and all their friends come to life in this delightful adaption suggested by the characters created by Beatrix Potter. 

Three Small Irish Masterpieces - Irish Repertory Theater
Through April 15, 2018 - New York

A simple policeman looks into his heart and turns himself into a wide-eyed folk hero. A hungry trickster makes a hearty meal of a stone and a song. A poignant tale is told of a solitary man washed up by the sea on the faraway coast of Donegal. This is the stuff of which great drama can be wrought. A one-act play can achieve a kind of greatness. If that one-act play is written by John Millington Synge, Lady Gregory, or William Butler Yeats, surely it has a head start in that direction. With their romantic views of the past, and their wondrous sets of laws and techniques, these three plays, lovingly presented, full of politics, wild humor, unique displays of language, and finally, deep tragedy, come as close as can be to masterworks.

Erwin Redl's Whiteout - Madison Square Park
Through April 15, 2018 - Flatiron

Ted Thirlby - will display a selection of his “plywood series” paintings using stain and oils on salvaged plywood pieces.

Michael Cole - aka “Copper Mike,” an artist and metal worker who incorporates those skills into his master motorcycle building.

Through April 15, 2018 - New York

The New York Studio School presents an exhibition of Diana Cooper's 2D and small 3D works in Gleanings (1997-2018). Cooper is known for pushing the boundaries of drawing by employing an astonishing range of materials – paper, ink, acrylic but also plastics, aluminum tape, pom poms, pipe cleaners, Velcro, felt, Post-Its, and original photographs. Her work has ranged from intimate and playful doodles, to room size installations that conjure up images of machines for obscure purposes. Her unique approach establishes a fascinating tension between free line and technological drafting, the ephemeral and the systematic, the playful and the foreboding.

Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

Conflating narrative tropes and methods from television sitcoms, theater, science fiction, mythology, and anthropology, Mellors writes the scripts for each of his projects, which he also directs, edits, and produces. His raucous films feature a book-eating creature named "The Object" who literally digests a family's library in Ourhouse (2010–ongoing); a Neanderthal in perpetual free-fall over the San Joaquin Valley in Neanderthal Container, (2014); and two messianic beings, in the form of a cardboard box and a giant egg, who attempt to make sense of a culture that they created millions of years prior in The Aalto Natives (2017, in collaboration with Erkka Nissinen, originally conceived for the Finnish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale). For his exhibition at the New Museum, Mellors will create a new environment including video projection and animatronic sculpture. "Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks" is curated by Margot Norton, Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Nathaniel Mellors was born in 1974 in Doncaster, UK, and lives and works in Los Angeles and Amsterdam. Solo exhibitions include the Box, Los Angeles (2016); Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2014); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2014); Galway Arts Centre, Ireland (2013); Baltimore Museum of Art (2013); Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2012); Cobra Museum, Amstelveen, Netherlands (2011); and Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2011). Mellors has also been featured in group exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde, Denmark (2016); the Taipei Biennial, Taiwan (2014); Manifesta Foundation, Amsterdam (2014); National Gallery of the Arts, Tirana (2014); National Centre for Contemporary Arts, Moscow (2013); Kunsthalle Krems, Austria (2013); the Slaughterhouse, Plymouth, UK (2011); Center for Contemporary Art Glasgow (2011); the Hayward Gallery, London (2011); the 54th Venice Biennale (2011); and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy (2011). He is the recipient of the 2014 Contemporary Art Society Prize and the 2011 Cobra Art Prize. Mellors and Finnish artist Erkka Nissenen represented Finland at the 57th Venice Biennale with their collaborative video installation The Aalto Natives (2017).

These artists employ diverse mediums to translate the aftermath of trauma and discrimination. Featuring: Amber Atiya Esteban Jefferson DonChristian Jones Amy Khoshbin SomBlackGuy Chris Watts Lachell Workman Alessandra Gomez

Alexandra Pirici - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

Her new project for the New Museum takes the form of an ongoing action with live performers and one holographic performer. The project approaches the concept of presence in an expanded sense, focusing in particular on its increasing dispersion. In Pirici's ongoing action—conceived especially for the New Museum's South Galleries—presence is revealed in a variety of ways: as physical body as well as artificial stand-in, avatar, and ghost, taking on the character of a memorial or monument; as image and abstraction of the living subject into quantifiable, monetizable data; and as the expanded life of "dead" objects in museum collections—using the presence of live performers to challenge their stable state and static interpretation. This new work continues Pirici's recent interrogations into the collective body through choreographies that link different temporal and spatial events in real time. In the work, performers embody amalgamated parts, intersecting with each other yet separately manipulable. Pirici's project attempts to enact the dispersion of presence and to comment on contemporary processes of abstraction that separate sign from substance and image from material support. Proposing a distributed occupation of space and time, the work functions as one monstrous, modular organism made of living and digital matter. The exhibition is curated by Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Alexandra Pirici was born in 1982 in Bucharest, Romania, where she lives and works. Her work has recently been presented at n.b.k, Berlin (2017); Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017); the Berlin Biennial (2016); Tate Modern, London, and Tate Liverpool (2016); OFF-Biennale Budapest (2015); the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2015); Manifesta 10, St. Petersburg (2014); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2014). In collaboration with artist Manuel Pelmu?, she represented Romania at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013). In 2015, she received the Excellence Award of the National Dance Center, Bucharest.

Virva Hinnemo - Anita Rogers Gallery
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Anita Rogers Gallery presents Four Feet, an exhibition of new work by Swedish/Finnish artist Virva Hinnemo. The exhibition will be on view February 21- April 21, 2018 at 15 Greene Street, Ground Floor in SoHo, New York. There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, February 21, 6-8pm. RSVP Required. Please RSVP to info@anitarogersgallery.com. I'm not saying I am a cave woman but on a subliminal level I get what she painted in her cave. I fill my studio walls with marks: at times awkward and careless looking ones. I submit to an internal drive to move, to be physical and to be alone. I want to leave a trail of light and atmosphere that defies my doubt. Ideas can't do this for me; I need to re-route my energy and tap into something else, somewhere beneath the surface. I'm wide-awake watching my paintings as if they might leap out at me. Virva Hinnemo continues to make eloquent, evocative paintings that link her uniquely physical process to a visual territory all her own. Hinnemo's images are intimate and sublimated translations of things and objects delivered from a reservoir of visual annotations. Her language is spare and unaffected. Only what she genuinely intuits is for us to see. The virtues of paint are abundant but frugal, open-ended yet tough-minded. Hinnemo's attitude is straightforward and not-to-be denied. If Motherwell made enduring images, Hinnemo makes hers persistent and resolute; her lyricism is of another kind. Hinnemo's blunt inscriptions are made exclusively by hand and give the impression of signs or symbols observed directly from life and always on her own terms.

With his easily recognizable style of thin lines, unwieldy shapes, and heavy use of black forms, Mignola has amassed a large following of avid readers of his best-selling graphic novels. In 1982, hoping to find a way to draw monsters for a living, he moved to New York City and began working for Marvel Comics. During the 1990's, after developing his iconic technique, Mignola moved to Dark Horse Comics, where he created his signature Hellboy series, a collection of comic books and graphic novels that chronicles the fate of a half-demon occult detective who may or may not be the Beast of the Apocalypse. In this exhibit, the Society will feature highlights from his fan-favorite Hellboy series, as well as other spin-off titles including work from B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and Witchfinder. The Society is also pleased to feature samples from his award-winning comic books including the Eisner Award winner The Amazing Screw-On Head (Dark Horse Comics) as well as Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire (Bantam Spectra), co-written by best-selling author Christopher Golden. This special exhibit will include an array of comic pages, covers, and rarely seen original paintings by Mignola.

Saturday Instructional Drawing Class - The Society of Illustrators
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Eric Michelson (the instructor) is a working artist in NYC with over 30 years experience teaching in various schools including the Art Students League, National Academy of Design and the 92nd Street Y. His paintings are in many private collections. The class will focus on the practical skills needed to express the human form. We will concentrate on gesture, line, proportion, anatomy and a clear understanding of light and shadow. The aim is to help the student identify the essential elements of the figure and express it. It is important to understand that these skills are the same whether your drawing is a quick study or a fully modeled one. The drawing classes will consist of short and long poses. A few charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser, and an 18x24 newsprint pad are all that is required but people with experience may use whatever they like in the way of drawing materials and paper

Jeff Koons: Easyfun-Ethereal - Gagosian
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Gagosian is pleased to present “Easyfun-Ethereal,” seven large-scale paintings by Jeff Koons, which were first presented together at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin in 2000. Three of the paintings are on generous loan from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Also on view, will be Woman Reclining (2010–14), a granite sculpture from the Antiquity series. Following the enthusiastic public response to Balloon Flower (Blue), the large mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture installed in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin in 1999, the Deutsche Guggenheim commissioned the first seven of the Easyfun-Ethereal paintings: mural-sized tableaux that combine cut-out photographs of packaged foods, fragments of faces, limbs, and hair, amusement park scenes, and paradisiacal landscapes into images of convulsive beauty.

'Cinderella the Musical' - The Players Theatre
Through April 22, 2018 - Greenwich Village

This beautiful musical by Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell is based on the beloved classic fairy tale. Poor Cinderella, she works all day, has to deal with those awful step-sisters and then sleeps in the cinders. But, don't be too sad because Cinderella is one smart cookie. She'll make it to the Prince's ball and capture his heart.

In addition to the one-hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how it was turned into a musical. Then the kids and their families make their own crowns and magic wands to take home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production. The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.

The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975 - New York Historical Society
Through April 22, 2018 - New York

The New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking exhibition on one of the most controversial events of the 20th century: the Vietnam War. Populating a 3,000-square-foot gallery with interpretive displays, digital media, artwork, artifacts, photographs, and documents, the exhibit provides an enlightening account of the causes, progression, and impact of the war. Spanning the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina from 1945 to 1975, the narrative incorporates perspectives that cover both the home front and the war front. Displays feature such topics as the Cold War, the draft, military campaigns initiated by both sides, the growth of the antiwar movement, the role of the president, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition, explore themes of patriotism, duty, and citizenship through key objects, including a troopship berthing unit, vibrant antiwar posters, artwork by Vietnam vets, a Viet Cong bicycle, the Pentagon Papers, and historical film footage. Long overdue in the realm of public history, the exhibit not only provides a chronological and thematic analysis of the Vietnam War but also inspires a fuller, more diverse conversation about the war. The exhibition is curated by Marci Reaven, vice president of history exhibitions. The exhibition's illustrated companion book may be purchased at the NYHistory Store.

Seed / Pond by Halsey Chait - The Invisible Dog Art Center
Through April 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

The oldest bridges were logs and stepping stones. Balancing across them allowed a traveler to pass from one side to another. SEED / POND is an exhibit that seeks to bridge the divide between internal and external perception by offering large-scale algorithmic ink drawings to ponder as well as the opportunity to physically navigate through a gallery-wide floor drawing installation. The SEED drawings act as portals to labyrinthian journeys generated from either boundary or core, each mark impacting the location of the next, a spiraling pattern of choices made that influence the choices still to come. The drawings lead the eyes to focus on the center while simultaneously expanding outwards to the circumference of growth. Each drawing is a seed of vibrating light, acting as a nucleus of future expansion, representing the light that is transmitted through generations. POND is an invitation to step consciously along a path composed of stepping stones scattered within drawn undulations of interwoven water. The installation emerges from the tradition of walking labyrinths, meditative paths that can inspire focus while the walker navigates through all that is flowing around them, all their relations, all their thoughts. Unlike single path labyrinths, the stepping stones of POND form a maze with multiple routes, where every step seeds the next, where the outward physical act of finding balance can inform one's inward centering.

The Floating World by Emma Sulkowicz - The Invisible Dog Art Center
Through April 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ukiyo, or "the floating world," describes the hedonistic culture of kabuki theater, geisha, bath houses, and pleasure quarters in Japan's Edo period. It is homophonous with the Buddhist term for "this world of sorrow and grief." The Floating World is an exploration of the meaning of support. When people experience pain or trauma, their loved ones "hold them together" and "lift them up." The installation consists of a series of glass orbs, suspended and connected in a hybrid style of shibari and ukidama, or Japanese fishing floats. Each orb holds a floating artifact of the artist's relationship with a member of their community. With original musical composition by Sean Harold. Emma Sulkowicz (b. 1992) is an American artist of Japanese-Chinese-Jewish descent who lives and makes art in their hometown, New York City. They earned a BFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2015 and studied studio art in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. They are perhaps best known for their senior thesis at Columbia University — "Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight)" — an endurance performance artwork in which they carried a dorm mattress everywhere on Columbia's campus for as long as they attended the same school as their attacker. Their awards include the National Organization for Women's Woman of Courage Award (2016) and Susan B. Anthony Award (2014), the United States Student Association's National Student Movement Builder of the Year Award (2015), and the Feminist Majority Foundation and Ms. Magazine's Ms. Wonder Award (2015).

"Since our home base of Whitman Theatre will be closed for twelve months for much-needed structural repairs, the upcoming season will be presented in two alternative spaces, allowing us the opportunity to share more intimate arts experiences with our audience." The season opens on October 21, 2017 with the Tierney Sutton Band, presenting their 2017 GRAMMY® Award-nominated project The Sting Variations. 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. Actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty will revive his one-man-show Emergency during Black History Month (February 17-18, 2018), in which he portrays more than 40 characters. Having premiered in 2006 at The Public Theater (where it was titled Emergence-SEE!), this solo tour-de-force explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. The prestigious Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company returns for the fifth annual Lunar New Year Celebration, and Step Afrika! brings their "percussive spectacle" (The New York Times) back to Brooklyn Center. Finally, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated musicians of Los Pleneros de la 21 present a musical celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican holiday traditions with their family-friendly Christmas in El Barrio.

Award-winning actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty portrays more than 40 characters in this solo theatrical tour-de-force as he explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. Through the characters' various testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves an intricately woven, witty, and moving commentary on modern African American life."We can overcome if we change the way we see, see ourselves, see our past, see our possibility."- Daniel Beaty from Emergency   Kenny Barron (solo piano) Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 8pm, $35 Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn Praised by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the top jazz pianists in the world," NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron has an unmatched elegance, melodic sensibility, and rhythmic mastery.

Antonio Lopez - Danziger Gallery
Through April 28, 2018 - New York

Danziger Gallery is pleased to announce our representation of the photographic estate of Antonio Lopez. The foremost fashion illustrator of the 1970s and 80s, Antonio (as he signed his work) was and remains one of the most highly regarded and influential figures in the fashion world. While not initially known as a photographer, Antonio was rarely without his favorite Instamatic camera, and as his career progressed he turned increasingly to photography to create fashion stories, portraits, and elaborate mise-en-scènes. This exhibition – the first to focus exclusively on Antonio's photographs - features a selection of the unique Instamatic prints from the 1970s that were his photographic form. Developed and printed by Kodak, these prints were either mounted by Antonio or stored in the original yellow Kodak envelopes that the film was processed and delivered in. As Antonio never sent the negatives back for re-printing each print is unique. While primarily known for his fashion illustrations, Antonio did not treat his photographs lightly, assembling them in grids and pairs to create dynamic and visceral patterns. While the prints may superficially resemble Andy Warhol's Polaroids because of their size and period, Antonio's Kodak prints are a burst of energy to Warhol's more classical studies. While Warhol's Polaroids were mostly the basis for future painted portraits, Antonio's photographs were an end to themselves. A serial Svengali, as the writer Karin Nelson noted: "Lopez brilliantly transformed the women in his world. Under his tutelage, Jerry Hall, a long tall Texan he met at Paris's Club Sept, evolved into a golden goddess. He put Jessica Lange in gold lamé evening dresses after discovering her in Paris studying mime, and gave aspiring model Tina Lutz her start (and an introduction to future husband Michael Chow); and, by spotlighting Pat Cleveland, a mixed-race model with a theatrical streak, he helped break down the color barrier in high fashion." Other favorite subjects were the young Grace Coddington, Grace Jones, and Paloma Picasso. Antonio Lopez was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico in 1943. His family moved to Spanish Harlem in 1950 where he showed early promise as an artist making drawings for his mother who was a seamstress and dressmaker. In the early 1960s he enrolled on a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York where he met Juan Ramos who became his life long collaborator. He joined The New York Times in 1963 but was soon freelancing for Harper's Bazaar, British Vogue and French Elle. In 1969 he moved to Paris with Ramos where he was commissioned by all the leading fashion magazines. He returned to New York in 1975 creating numerous covers and picture stories for Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine. Antonio died in Los Angeles 1987. He was forty four years old. A documentary "Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion, and Disco" is slated for release in the fall of 2018. Written, produced and directed by James Crump, the film covers his colorful and often outrageous milieu and features Jessica Lange, Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, Grace Coddington, Bob Colacello, Patti D'Arbanville, Karl Lagerfeld, Juan Ramos, Bill Cunningham, Yves Saint Laurent, Donna Jordan, Michael Chow, and Paul Caranicas, among others.

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. Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri 10-4 pm; Sat and Sun 1-4 pm. For more information visit www.rocklandartcenter.org or call 845-358-0877. RoCA’s programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the main event—the afterlife.

Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom - NYU
Through May 04, 2018 - New York

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom brings together over a dozen contemporary artists working across a range of media to interpret an extraordinary—and now lost—historical artifact: a so-called "Book of Paintings" created by José Antonio Aponte, a nineteenth-century Afro-Cuban revolutionary. Authorities found the "Book of Paintings" in 1812 during the investigation into a major antislavery conspiracy. During his trial, Aponte was forced to describe every picture in his book. They portrayed lush landscapes and Biblical stories; Roman goddesses and Spanish kings; black men as warriors, emperors, and librarians; Rome and Ethiopia; Havana and the heavens. Shortly after testifying, Aponte was publicly executed, and his "Book of Paintings" disappeared. Using Aponte's trial testimony—which is all that is known to remain of the "Book of Paintings"—the artists of Visionary Aponte have reimagined Aponte's book for our present. They invite us to think about the role of art in making social change and in mitigating the violence of colonialism and its archive. The artists include: José Bedia (Miami), Leonardo Benzant (New York), Juan Roberto Diago (Havana), Édouard Duval-Carrié (Miami), Alexis Esquivel (Havana), Teresita Fernández (New York), Nina Angela Mercer (New York), Clara Morera (North Carolina), Glexis Novoa (Miami), Marielle Plaisir (Miami), Asser Saint-Val (Miami), Jean-Marcel Saint-Jacques (New Orleans), Renée Stout (Washington, D.C.). The exhibition also incorporates—and the art engages—scholarly research on Aponte and his world by NYU Professor Ada Ferrer, author of the prize-winning book Freedom's Mirror: Cuba and Haiti in the Age of Revolution, and art historian Linda Rodríguez, curator of the digital humanities website Digital Aponte. The show, which originally opened in Miami's Little Haiti Cultural Center during Art Basel 2017, will be on view starting February 23, 2018 at New York University's King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center.

exonemo: The Life-Cycle of Interfaces - New Media Art Space
Through May 04, 2018 - New York

For The Life-Cycle of Interfaces exhibition, the artists will exhibit a suite of four works: Documentation about selected works: Since 2012, Exonemo has been organizing Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet black market), a “backstreet of the internet.” Artists and creators are invited to occupy a flea-market styled exhibition space, and sell items that are interesting and unique to the internet. Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another. DesktopBAM (2010) is a performance piece entailing programmatically controlling a mouse cursor to DJ on a desktop environment. It’s a homage to turntablism, born from using turntables in unconventional ways. The title BAM pays tribute to Afrika Bambaataa, a musician hailing from south Bronx, New York, one of the originators of breakbeat DJing and hip hop culture. The dynamism of this performance is created by the mouse cursor, controlled by computer algorithm, to move faster and more accurately than any human DJ can possibly comprehend. The computational movements trigger the audience’s physicality, while at the same time evoke the “physicality of computers” controlled by humans in return. DanmatsuMouse (2007) humors with the idea of an electronic interface as an object of spirituality. The video records the process of destroying a physical mouse, while simultaneously capturing the motion of the trembling cursor desperately crawling across the digital screen, beckoning for a last bitwise appearance. The expressive movement of the cursor invites us to reconsider our relationship with a tool, an electronic device, or a technological object. Do tools exist for the purpose of helping its owner? Or do they leave behind traces of their own being? Could a tool serve as an interface crossing the immediate to the grandeur - an alternative space that’s ever expanding but never approaching? Fireplace (2014) is a video piece presenting scenes of burning optical mice and keyboards as tinder fed into a fireplace. In the old days of “hearth and home,” the fireplace was the center of the living room and family gathering. With the evolution of technology, fireplace was replaced by TV. In some countries, there are TV channels one can tune in to conveniently display video broadcasts of fireplaces. Entering into the era of hand-held devices, where everyone carries “smart” personal technology with them, PCs are joining the same fate as the fireplace, and other technological objects that are no longer desired. So, how about feeding retired PCs to fireplaces? To burn away yet another legacy as we shift to a new world of decentralized personal displays?

Edmund Clark: The Day the Music Died - ICP Museum
Through May 06, 2018 - New York

British photographer Edmund Clark has spent ten years exploring structures of power and control in the so-called global War on Terror. Edmund Clark: The Day the Music Died presents photographic, video, and installation work focusing on the measures deemed necessary to protect citizens from the threat of international terrorism. It also explores the far-reaching effects of such methods of control on issues of security, secrecy, legality, and ethics. From Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan to extraordinary rendition and the CIA's secret prison program, Clark's work finds new ways to visualize the processes, sites, and experiences associated with the United States' response to international terrorism. His engagement with military and state censorship defines the secrecy and denial around these subjects. Through photographs and declassified documents, Clark reveals how the unexpected connections between those who exercise control and those who are subject to it bring this covert torture trail to a human level. He highlights the everyday veneers under which purveyors of detention and interrogation operate in plain sight, brings light to the processes beneath, and reflects on how terror impacts us all by altering fundamental aspects of our society and culture. Organized by Director of Exhibitions and Collections Erin Barnett, this is Clark's first major solo exhibition in the United States.
