Møme - Rough Trade NYC
Through April 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

When not surfing the Australian waves, the musician Møme (aka Jérémy Souillart) likes nothing better than composing. He has converted his van into a studio-on-wheels and, driving from coast to coast, he composes as he goes. Jérémy was raised in Nice and his 'chillwave' sound is proving a great hit back in his native France. Influenced by the artists of the Australian Future Classic label such as Flume or Chet Faker, his EP Aloha states his attachment to Pop Electronic music as testifies its aerial and beat soul covered by the voice of the Australian singer Merryn Jeann. Before releasing his first EP (Eclipse, 2014), the 26-year-old musician used to play the guitar in a rock band. He still plays, though he has gravitated towards the computer- and synthesizer-produced software that inspired the expanding Møme project. The new sound lay behind the track 'Cyclope' on his second EP (Cosmopolitan, 2015) which along with the clip got him noticed by the musical press. After producing his EP Aloha, Møme drove to Australia in his van last November and met other producers, male and female singers who feature on his recordings. Far from his comfort zone in the huge country where Future Classic was born Møme found a solid background to compose.

Host Sofija Stefanovic welcomes some of her favorite outsiders for a celebration of immigration! Each month, at one of New York's finest venues, some fish-out-of-water tell true tales from their lives. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more! From addresses to the President, to songs about first kisses, the evening is set to be one of worldly proportions. This January, uncensored on our stage, we bring you: - Armando Lucas Correa (author of The German Girl) - Negin Farsad (comedian, actress and filmmaker) - Paul Holdengräber (director and founder of LIVE from the NYPL) - Amitava Kumar (writer, journalist, author of Lunch with a Bigot) - Aasif Mandvi (actor and comedian) … with music from Treya! In a multicultural world that harbors some strong anti-immigration feelings, being a newcomer can be uncomfortable, hilarious, and weird. But it also makes for some great stories. Come for the stories, leave with some feelings – and enjoy drinks, laughs and cries in between. Created by Sofija Stefanovic @sstefanovic Produced by Trish Nelson's BanterGirl @BanterGirlSTW Our programmer-at-large is Michaela McGuire @michaelamcguire @ThisAlienNation

After producing his EP Aloha, Møme drove to Australia in his van last November and met other producers, male and female singers who feature on his recordings. Far from his comfort zone in the huge country where Future Classic was born Møme found a solid background to compose. It's not all life on the road. In order to finalize his titles and his next album, Møme stopped driving. Back in France since May he has been working in studio on his very first album "Panorama" due to be released on 25thNovember. Jérémy's musical experience ranges across jazz, to the French Touch and guitarists like John Butler. This breadth undoubtedly owes much to his love for the guitar and his formal piano training at Nice's Academy of Music. From a composer with such a background, the neat yet startling sound of the Møme Project is hardly surprising. Starting out from the Soundcloud Community and now supported by the DDM Recordings label, Jérémy has naturally opened up to innumerable sounds gathered in one unique project: Møme.

Ghost Light, The Magic Beans - Brooklyn Bowl
April 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ghost Light is a true musical collaboration; five personalities, five perspectives, and five unique approaches towards one common sound. Rather than initially focusing on live shows, the band played together for the first time in a recording studio in Philadelphia. This decision gave the band's members - Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo's Almost Dead, American Babies, Brothers Past), Steve Lyons (Nico's Gun), Raina Mullen (American Babies) and Scotty Zwang (Dopapod) - the ability to come to the project with fresh ears and no pre-conceived notions. They developed the songs as they developed their musical communication which led to trust, creativity and an adventurous take on the process. Scotty Zwang explained it thusly, "It's an unique and interesting approach we get to take..." "we are being patient with each other and figuring out what the song needs"

Invisible Capitalism: Japanese Capitalism & the Future of Global CapitalismInvisible Capitalism: Japanese Capitalism & the Future of Global Capitalism - Japan Society
April 11, 2018 - New York

Capitalism today is based on economic and monetary values. This form of capitalism has reached its limits, as it cannot solve social and environmental issues. In order to shift to a more sustainable economic framework, many countries will need to transition to a new model of invisible capitalism, focusing on invisible capital such as knowledge, relationships, trust, reputation, empathy, culture and other values. Those invisible capitals will become more important in the age of advanced knowledge society. Additionally, we are witnessing the emergence of a voluntary economy based on goodwill—for example, review websites are promoting economic development by allowing customers to supply reviews and ratings, a new business model that adopts user-generated content. In Japan, these invisible values and goodwill are important aspects of society—core values that Japanese capitalism takes into consideration. In this program, Professor Hiroshi Tasaka from the Graduate School of Tama University in Tokyo shares his insights on invisible capitalism in Japan and the future of global capitalism. He also discusses how Japan can contribute to the evolution of capitalism in the 21st century.

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto - School Of Architecture And Planning 2018 Lecture Series: Border Crossing - University at Buffalo
April 11, 2018 - New York

The School of Architecture and Planning's 2018 Will and Nan Clarkson Chair in Architecture, Yoshiharu Tsukamoto is a professor at Columbia University's GSAPP. Tsukamoto is a graduate of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, where he later taught in the architecture department. Tsukamoto specializes in 'architectural behaviorology' a science that focuses on human behavior both inside and outside buildings, and the behavior of buildings in their surroundings and environmental elements. His research aims to synthesize all these behaviors and foster organic architecture. Tsukamoto co-founded Tokyo-based atelier bow-wow together with partner Momoyo Kaijima. The firm has built over 25 houses, public museums, and commercial buildings. While a majority of this work can be found in Tokyo, other projects are in Denmark, France and the United States. The firm's research studies have contributed to "micro-public-space," a concept of public space, which has been exhibited across the world at events such as Biennales in Sao Paolo, Venice, Istanbul, and Liverpool.

Ghost Light Feat. Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen, Scotty Zwang - Brooklyn Bowl
April 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ghost Light is a true musical collaboration; five personalities, five perspectives, and five unique approaches towards one common sound. Rather than initially focusing on live shows, the band played together for the first time in a recording studio in Philadelphia. This decision gave the band's members - Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo's Almost Dead, American Babies, Brothers Past), Steve Lyons (Nico's Gun), Raina Mullen (American Babies) and Scotty Zwang (Dopapod) - the ability to come to the project with fresh ears and no pre-conceived notions. They developed the songs as they developed their musical communication which led to trust, creativity and an adventurous take on the process. Scotty Zwang explained it thusly, "It's an unique and interesting approach we get to take..." "we are being patient with each other and figuring out what the song needs" While the recording project has been the beginning point for Ghost Light, the live experience is what will define this band. "In the parts of the sessions where we have had a little more room to just let things go, there have been these little glimmers of what the improvisation will feel like live. That's a whole other thing and it's very exciting," notes Holly Bowling. Tom Hamilton adds, "with this new band, we felt super comfortable going in any direction, knowing that with our new bandmates, the songs will get to where they needs to go. And in the live setting, that confidence is just as strong." The first half of 2018 will see the band playing major venues in major markets coast to coast, followed by heavy rotation on the festival circuit. The debut record will be released in the second half of the year and will be supported by an extensive tour. In 2018 you will get to know Ghost Light, and the future could not be brighter.

Awarded through a competition, the project features the world's first porcelain courtyard. MAAT is a low-slung, tile-clad building that invites visitors onto its roof, creating a major new public amenity on the banks of Lisbon's Tagus River. Levete trained at the Architectural Association and worked for Richard Rogers before joining Future Systems as a partner in 1989, realizing ground-breaking buildings including the Media Centre at Lord's Cricket Ground and Selfridges department store in Birmingham.

Time Sawyer - Hill Country Live
April 11, 2018 - New York

"Standing at the crossroads of rustic folk, mountain bluegrass and rocking alt-country, Elkin, N.C.'s Time Sawyer is a young band with plenty of old soul. They craft catchy, uplifting, not-too-polished tunes that retain the uncertainty and grit of daily life. The hooky but rough-hewn indie Americana of Ryan Adams, Justin Townes Earle and Jeff Tweedy are obvious influences, but the band's roots stretch far and wide to include echoes of Buddy Holly's rockabilly shuffle and Nashville Skyline-era Bob Dylan's countrified warble. With an average age of 24, the foursome is energetic — they've released four albums in three years — and musically mature, weaving banjo, guitar and harmonica into an easy-going, organic sound that seems to have sprung fully formed from the Yadkin Valley soil. -Pat Moran, Creative Loafing CLT

Heather signed to Oh Boy in 1993 and spent the next two years readying her debut album MASCARA FALLS. The album was produced by Roger Moutenot, who also handles producer duties on the new release. Heather toured the US, opening for Oh Boy owner John Prine and appearing at such illustrious venues as the Fillmore and the Ryman Auditorium. She landed a booking on The Conan O'Brien Show.

Join Andrea Swensson and guests for an in-depth discussion of the history of music that lead to Prince's breakout, accompanied by samples from DJ David Kiss.

Pros & iCons - Daryl's House Club
April 11, 2018 - Pawling

When Joseph Mastando (singer), Lenny Morales (guitarist), Nicholas Vaude (guitarist), and Tyler O'Leary (bassist) banded together, they sought to revive the energy and free spirit of the iConic 1980s rock 'n' roll scene. Using their business-savvy wit shaped on the streets of their NYC home, Pros & iCons' four members crafted a sound and look that injected the iConic in today's mainstream, capturing a rock 'n' roll edge that speaks to the rebellion swelling inside any adolescent, wild heart. In the studio, Pros & iCons breaks pop stereotypes and transcends genre. Though synth-driven, each instrumental comes to life with the guitar. From booming solos to infectious leads, each instrumental breathes with the accompaniment of six strings. The group propels the momentum of each track by harnessing near hip-hop percussion; crushing bass, contemporary trap hi-hats, and rhythmic 808s forge the heartbeat of each composition. And through all these hard, traditionally anarchical sounds remain clean, clear, and soaring vocals to juxtapose the aforementioned grit—vocals chiseled with a more classic approach channeling the soulful beginnings of rock 'n' roll with a theatrical clarity. Somehow, the sounds coalesce in one fresh and progressive blend that's uniquely Pros & iCons.

g/leaning: assemblage, quotation, intertextuality with Emily Skillings Emily Skillings - Poets House
April 11, 2018 - New York

In her 2012 essay "A Sort of Leaning Against," Maggie Nelson writes: "For a long time, I worried there was something wrong with me as a writer, because I leaned so heavily on the thinking and writing of others. And further, that instead of wanting to hide that leaning, my impulse has often been to showcase it, to make this thinking-with-others, this weaving of mine and others' words, part of the texture of my writing." Over the course of this six-week workshop, we will investigate this ethics of interdependence or "mutual aid" in writing. What happens when we make visible our attachments, associations, and connections—both critical, aesthetic, and sensory? This course will invite poets to engage the visual art practices of collage and assemblage, as well as list-making, quotation, and archival/ experiential research. Together we will collect the language and images that we encounter in our daily lives to make dynamic new writings that disturb the notion that when we write we are writing alone. Students will keep visual notebooks/scrapbooks and respond to weekly prompts. We will consult the projects and process(es) of artists, filmmakers, and writers, including Susan Howe, Douglas Kearney, Sei Sh?nagon, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, John Ashbery, Muriel Rukeyser, Claudia Rankine, John Beer, Bernadette Mayer, Charles Baudelaire, Maggie Nelson, and Agnes Varda.

The Legendary Roy Ayers: 'Godfather of Neo-Soul' - Highline Ballroom
Through April 11, 2018 - New York

Roy Ayers was during the 1960s one of the most prominent and leading jazz vibraphone players in America. During the 1970s and 80s he came to change his focus and became one of the leading figures in R&B and jazz/funk. The 1990s has once again brought him into a new direction and he is now regarded being one of the greatest innovators of the acid jazz movement. His music has often been described as being years ahead of it's time. Ayers was born on September 10, 1940, in Los Angeles, California. Thanks to the influence of his mother, a piano teacher, and his father, a trombone player, Ayers was a musical child. By the early 1960s, Ayers was playing regularly with a number of local performers, including such fixtures on the Los Angeles jazz scene as Teddy Edwards, Chico Hamilton, and Jack Wilson. This experience soon gave Ayers the necessary confidence to become a band leader. His first opportunity to record in that capacity came in 1963, on a project called "West Coast Vibes," released by United Artists. In 1966 Ayers, at the invitation of bassist Reggie Workman, sat in on a gig with Herbie Mann and his Quintet, at the Lighthouse, a prominent Los Angeles jazz club. Mann was so impressed with his work that he immediately made Ayers a permanent member of the group. Ayers toured and recorded with Mann for the next four years, a period that included the release of Mann's smash hit LP, "Memphis Underground" During this stint, Ayers also recorded three solo albums--all produced by Mann: "Daddy Bug," "Virgo Red," and "Stoned Soul Picnic."

Fania All-Stars: Live in Africa - Museum of the City of New York
April 11, 2018 - New York

In 1974, during the heyday of New York City's salsa explosion, the Fania All-Stars, a group that brought together several of the Fania record label's most popular artists, were invited to perform in front of 80,000 people at a stadium in Zaire, Africa. Featuring exquisite performances by Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe, and the All-Stars' many other virtuoso players and vocalists, the concert was captured on film by director Leon Gast with help from Albert Maysles. Live In Africa (92 min, 1974) offers a glimpse into a particularly soulful moment in the history of Latin music and serves as a key document of the influence of New York City's diasporic, polyglot cultures on the world.

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."

Shironuri: Transforming a Single Face Opening Reception - RESOBOX East Village
April 12, 2018 - New York

Shironuri: Transforming a Single Face Opening Reception Date: Thursday, April 12, 2018 Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm Location: RESOBOX East Village (91 E 3rd St, New York, NY 10003) Website: http://resobox.com/exhibition/shironuri-transforming-a-single-face/ Exhibition Overview Katherine Radcliffe, a professional artist, was inspired to collaborate with Helen Moss during a time when Helen was studying classical Japanese dance. Katherine, fascinated by how completely shironuri (traditional stage makeup) transforms a face, asked Helen to model for photographs so that Katherine could capture the dramatic changes as they were happening. Not content to simply document standard, more familiar character changes, Katherine posed Helen in compositions varying from meditative, reverse image kaleidoscopic manipulations, multiple faces of the same pose in different sizes, with a focus on the flexibility of gender roles unique to classical Japanese dance.

Soon: What Science, Philosophy, Religion and History Teach Us about the Surprising Power of Procrastination - 92Y
April 12, 2018 - Upper East Side

Like so many of us, including most of America's workforce, and nearly two-thirds of all university students, author Andrew Santella procrastinates.Concerned about his habit but not quite ready to give it up, he set out to learn all he could about the human tendency to delay. He studied history's greatest procrastinators — from Leonardo da Vinci to Frank Lloyd Wright, from Old Testament prophets to Civil War generals — to gain insights into human behavior, and also, he writes, to kill time, "research being the best way to avoid real work." Santella offers a refreshingly sympathetic take on habitual postponement. (Why delay getting your ticket?)

The Lightning Thief - Garde Arts Center
April 12, 2018 - New London

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. One hour in length, recommended for grades 2 - 6. Curriculum Connections: Communication and Language Arts, Literature-based, Music, Relationships & Family, Social Studies.

3rd Annual Single Family Office Conference - CFA Society New York
April 12, 2018 - New York

The 3rd Annual Single Family Office Conference will feature a high-level discussion on major investment themes and global market dynamics from the perspective of single family offices. Single family offices are by definition running one family's capital. They are therefore inherently not commercial in the sense that they are not looking to run third party capital and consequently generally prefer to be opaque and obscure investors and allocators. It is not often that third parties are given the opportunity to peak behind their proverbial 'hoods.' This panel will provide a rare glimpse at the allocators, their methodologies, investments and market views. It is not every day that one has the opportunity to gain first degree insight into the single family office space.

Anna Rose (8:00) & Andrea Nardello (7:00) - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
April 12, 2018 - New York

Anna Rose is walking, singing proof that big things most definitely come in small packages. The fiery singer, whose sound was defined as "bluesy rock-n-roll" by Paper Magazine, recently released her new EP Strays In The Cut. In support of the Noble Steed Music release, Rose will continue select tour dates across the U.S. Of the new EP, Elmore Magazine raved, "channeling'90s pop/rock voices, Rose delivers some hauntingly beautiful music." Anna Rose was also featured in Relix Magazine alongside Bonnie Raitt and Grace Potter in the September 2016 Women Who Rock issue. Strays in the Cut is a collection of six mesmerizing tracks that find Rose at the top of her game, pushing musical boundaries in pure ass-kicking style. Strays in the Cut is the much-anticipated follow-up to Rose's Behold a Pale Horse, which Flashwounds declared a "deep swirl of Blues and Rock and Roll" that "beautifully represents the many dark and beautiful corridors of the human heart." Behold a Pale Horse introduced us to Rose's dynamic voice and effortless command of the guitar; each song highlighted by attitude and pure grit. Undoubtedly, Behold a Pale Horse cemented Rose as a veritable force, with hard-driving Rock and dirty Blues coursing through her veins. When The Gramophone Rings called her, "something of a rare breed" and claimed she is, "a singer-songwriter with an ear to 90s pop-rock and a penchant for big hooks, her sound is straightforward, even earnest, with a focus on performance over production. Philly's Andrea Nardello has garnered favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge and Shawn Colvin for melding pop songwriting smarts with a confessional and literate songwriting style which often explores relationships, romance, and her own "out" family life. Andrea has been busy touring in support of her EP, entitled ECHO, opening for Brandi Carlile, Tony Lucca, Gabe Dixon, Ron Pope, and Emerson Hart of Tonic fame. After releasing ECHO, Andrea won the prestigious Philadelphia Songwriter's Project Contest and Tri-State Indie's "Acoustic Artist Of The Year". Her song "Home To Me" also won WSTW's Award for Folk Song Of The Year. Andrea's refined accessibility draws from folk, rock, soul, and even the swagger of hip-hop. Recently, Andrea returned to the studio with ECHO producer Matt Chiaravalle (Warren Zevon, Josh Joplin) and has released her new studio EP, Fire.

Della Mae - Rough Trade NYC
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

"We were ready to try something new," Celia Woodsmith says of Della Mae's eponymous third album and second Rounder release. "In some ways, this album's very different from what we've done previously, but it's self-titled because we feel like it sounds as much like us as anything we've ever done." Della Mae expands upon the musical achievements of the group's widely acclaimed, Grammy-nominated 2013 breakthrough album This World Oft Can Be, which established the multi-talented female combo as a potent musical force. With a sensitive yet assertive approach that's steeped in tradition yet firmly rooted in the present, the five versatile instrumentalist/vocalists draw from a bottomless well of rootsy influences to create vibrantly original music that conveys the band's expansive musical vision with timeless lyrical truths and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility that places them alongside such roots-conscious young acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff. Since its formation in 2009, the Boston-bred, Nashville-based outfit has established a reputation as a charismatic, hard-touring live act, building a large and enthusiastic fan base while racking up massive amounts of critical acclaim with its first two albums. Now, Della Mae finds the fivesome embracing a fresh set of musical challenges with eleven compelling new tunes that embody the musical and emotional qualities of the group's prior output while venturing into uncharted creative territory. Della Mae's renewed sense of mission is reflected in the emotional intensity and musical invention of such new originals as "Boston Town," "Rude Awakening" and "For the Sake of My Heart," as well as vivid, insightful readings of the Rolling Stones' classic "No Expectations" and the Low Anthem's haunting "To Ohio," which showcase the quartet's world-class musicianship and deeply expressive harmonies, as well as Celia Woodsmith's subtly commanding lead vocals. Mandolinist Jenni Lyn Gardner and guitarist Courtney Hartman also step up to the mic to take memorable lead-vocal turns on "Good Blood" and "Long Shadow," respectively.

The Mallett Brothers Band, Jon Fishman, People's Blues Of Richmond - Brooklyn Bowl
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Mallett Brothers Band's busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds. Texas Hill Country Explore Magazine calls them "New England's wildly eclectic crew of genre rebels." Bill Copeland Music News says "Combining their authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style that perceives stories on the level of epic myth, it's like William Faulkner has been resurrected with an electric guitar in hand.. While remaining fully independent, The Mallett Brothers Band has performed at some of the country's top venues and festivals, including Austin Texas's famed Continental Club; Alexandria, Virginia's Birchmere (sharing the stage with Oklahoma red-dirt rockers The Turnpike Troubadors), New Hampshire's Meadowbrook Pavilion (opening for The Allman Brothers Band, and again opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd); Nashville's Bluebird; and Little Rock's The Rev Room, to name a few. Festival appearances include FloydFest (Virginia), Hop Jam (Vermont), Nateva (Maine), The New England Country Music Festival (New Hampshire), Eastbound Throwdown (New York), and many more. "The Falling of the Pine," the band's most recent release, reimagines a group of 19th Century Maine folk songs collected in the 1927 book "Minstrelsy of Maine."

NC Meets NY - Carolines on Broadway
April 12, 2018 - New York

Two states of origin, two states of mind. Watch as the Carolines stage is shared by two headliners. One is a born-and-raised Manhattanite and the other hails from the quiet suburbs of Raleigh, North Carolina. Both are known for sharp observational comedy from their contrasting perspectives. Eric Neumann Here is a list of things that Eric calls "accomplishments", but his Jewish mom calls "distractions from finding a wife": He's a New York-based comedian and a regular performer at the city's top comedy clubs, and alternative rooms. Eric has performed at various festivals including The New York Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull Festival and Laughing Devil Festival. Eric is a regular headliner at Caroline's On Broadway, and was named "One of the hottest rising star stand-up comedians in New York" by Hollywood Radio and Television Society. Eric's audio clips have been featured on Rooftop Comedy's "Best Of" collection and have aired on Sirius XM Radio, Spotify and Audible. In 2016, Eric contributed material to The Comedy Central Roast Of Rob Lowe. In 2016 & 2017, he was a semi-finalist in New York's Funniest stand up. In 2017, he opened for legends Gilbert Gottfried and Richard Lewis. His debut show "Bring Your Parents To Work Day" was part of the 2017 New York Comedy Festival (Sponsored by TBS). He continues to tour the country but despite all these accomplishments, Eric has yet to have a year that financially tops his Bar Mitzvah year.

Miss Richfield 1981 'Born Again' - Triad Theater
Through April 12, 2018 - New York

In her all new show, Miss Richfield 1981 is "Born Again" finding new religion to bring our divided world together. With all new songs, videos, and unique audience activities, Miss R brings all faiths together in 2018. Atheists welcome! Dedicating her life to the friendly citizens and responsible merchants of her hometown of Richfield Minnesota ("where butter is a spice and gravy is a beverage"), Miss Richfield 1981 is fast becoming one of America's national treasures. This Midwestern maven is winning over theater audiences around the country with an interactive format that combines homespun warmth and edgy improv, leaving audiences in hysterics.

Bill Orcutt - Union Pool
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

As one of experimental music's most influential guitarists, Bill Orcutt weaves looping melodic lines and angular attack into a dense, fissured landscape of American primitivism, outsider jazz, and a stripped-down re-envisioning of the possibilities of the guitar. Whether he's playing his decrepit Kay acoustic or gutted electric Telecaster (both stripped of two of their strings, as has been Orcutt's custom since 1985), Orcutt's jagged sound is utterly unique and instantly recognizable, compared with equal frequency to avant-garde composers and rural bluesmen. The New York Times has called him a "powerful musician... a go-for-broke guitar improviser," and described his sound as "articulated sprays of arpeggiated chords and dissonance."

Dear Rouge - Mercury Lounge
April 12, 2018 - New York

21 and over DEAR ROUGE If there's one constant in life, it's this: nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable, for better or for worse—it's the sinister shadow lurking behind the sunniest day, the silver lining that offsets every cloud. That mutability is something with which the members of Dear Rouge are intimately familiar. Since putting out their debut EP in 2012, Drew and Danielle McTaggart have been on a somewhat breathtaking upward trajectory. That independent release led to another one, and the accolades began to flood in: a B.C.–based radio award, songwriting prizes, a sweet record deal, charting singles, and a 2016 Juno for Breakthrough Group of the Year followed in short order. For all intents and purposes, says Drew, it was the most ecstatic period of their lives. He and Danielle—partners in life and art—had quit their day jobs to focus on music full-time; they'd wholly channeled their energies into honing their sinewy, hook-driven indie rock. "It was the highest time of our lives," he says now.

Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) Training - University at Buffalo
April 12, 2018 - New York

Ask a question, save a life. QPR is an easy-to-learn process that helps you recognize the early warning signs of suicide, and get professional help for people who need it.

Participants in this presentation will leave with practical knowledge for helping others who might be at risk for suicide.

Abraham Brody & Trys Keturiose: Ancestors - National Sawdust
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

In our modern society, many of us have lost our roots. Knocked off balance by the speed and immediacy of modern technology, we have lost touch with many of the traditions which both ground us and orientate us to the rhythms of life. First premiered at the Barbican Centre in London, 'Ancestors' draws from both folk music and ancient rituals of Baltic Culture, exploring the connection to Brody's roots through ritual, gesture, and music. He will be joined by renowned Lithuanian folksinging ensemble Trys Keturiose who perform alongside him ancient polyphonic 'sutartin?s', which mean in Lithuanian 'to sound in harmony, to agree', bringing the performers and the public deeper into the rich Baltic tradition, and a form of meditation in performance. Throughout the performance the artists will perform ancient rituals which are directly related to the music. The rituals and songs are based around themes inherent to Lithuanian culture-the process of Linen works (long considered a magical process), bees and beekeeping, and rituals all connected to the word 'Teka', which in Lithuanian represents the flowing of time, the rising of the sun, the flowing of water, and the flowing of a bride to her husband. The music itself reflects the cyclical nature and eternal flow of these rituals. The mythological threads collected here intertwine like the music of the polyphonic songs themselves as if weaving a symbolic message.

Royal Wood - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
April 12, 2018 - New York

Life has a way of knocking on our door on the days we least expect it. For singer songwriter Royal Wood, life knocked pretty damn hard. For in the same year that he lost his father to illness, he also fell in love and got married. "I read once that you can't get wet from the word water. That it isn't the word that allows for the knowing to take place, but rather the experience itself that removes the veil. Life showed me first hand that I had never felt true grief before, nor did I understand love either until now. It's been a year of true paradigm shifts." As an artist, Royal channeled these polar opposite emotions into his new album *Ever After The Farewell*. Recorded in London, UK, with Jamie Scott (known for his work with renowned artists like Rag'n Bone Man, Michael Kiwanuka, Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran), Royal's album is not only deeply inspired by both loss and love, but is an ode to the classic styles of both Tin Pan Alley and Laurel Canyon.

Healing the Healer: Enhancing Clinician Efficacy and Self-Care Workshop - University at Buffalo
April 12, 2018 - New York

Full day continuing education workshop offered by the UB School of Social Work Office of Continuing Education. This training will benefit clinicians and other professionals who sometimes feel stuck, bored, overwhelmed, tired of or triggered by the work with trauma survivors and other clients. Helping professionals are born with the gift of assisting others in their healing journey. In our desire to do this, we often lose sight of the most important element- ourselves. Yet, our efficacy as professionals is really contingent upon the extent to which we take care of ourselves personally to prevent problems related to compassion fatigue, counter-transference, burnout and vicarious traumatization.

Robert Creeley Lecture in Poetry and Poetics - University at Buffalo
April 12, 2018 - New York

Poetics Plus Event This year's Robert Creeley Lecture in Poetry and Poetics will be given by Lisa Robertson. An important focus of her talk will be 11th-13th century poetries in the Occitan language, in which she will trace an avant avant garde thinking through of literary form as embodied, affective process, linguistic difference and minority/endangered languages and worlds, and the production and circulation of social meaning. This discussion will in turn have bearing on how contemporary poetic movements refuse and elude the reduction of what poetry communicates to the semiotics of global capital. Canadian poet Lisa Robertson recently published her tenth book, 3 Summers, with Coach House Books, as well as a chapbook, Starlings, with Krupskaya. Previous titles include Cinema of the Present, The Men, and the essay collections Nilling and Occasional Works and Seven Walks from the Office for Soft Architecture. This year she is the inaugural recipient of the C.D. Wright Award for Poetry from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts in New York. She lives in France.

HEAR & NOW: An Interactive Oral History Exhibit - The Social Hall, Union Theological Seminary, Columbia University
April 12, 2018 - New York City

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, an interactive exhibit will be curated by the students and faculty of Columbia’s Oral History Master of Arts program. From grade school we learn that History is the Thing that Happened. The bell rings and we leave History in a closed textbook, a specific classroom, and carry on with our day. We consume media, we process news, we have conversations, we think about tomorrow. But in doing so we are participating in history: constantly orienting ourselves in relation to existing and selected narratives. HEAR & NOW is a multimedia pop-up presenting the fieldwork of scholars who are also activists, researchers who are also storytellers, oral historians who are also community members. We, the members of OHMA, are intent on confronting our own roles, rights, and responsibilities as producers of knowledge, and urgently embrace the changeability of history. In many ways, this exhibit is an intervention. The telling of the past has been actively and hegemonically filtered, but we can work to recuperate silenced narratives and to change what capital-H History remembers moving forward. Let HEAR & NOW represent one of many efforts this year to recuperate these narratives.

She is a Pushcart Prize nominee and received a Drisha Institute for Jewish Education Arts Fellowship.  Janet teaches a variety of creative writing workshops and Jewish-themed classes and is a gold-star, licensed New York City sightseeing guide.   Robin Hirsch, a former Oxford, Fulbright and English-Speaking Union Scholar and the author of the acclaimed memoir, Last Dance at the Hotel Kempinski, for portions of which he received two NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts), Fellowships.  It has been called "one of the best books ever written on the long arm of the Holocaust" (Jewish Book News), "a luminous evocation of a vanished European world, masterfully performed" (American Theatre Magazine), and "completely glorious" (The Village Voice). He is an award-winning scholar, writer, and actor, but the titles he is proudest of are self-bestowed: Minister of Culture, Wine Czar, Dean of Faculty at the Cornelia Street Café, where he has presided over some 700 cultural events a year since 1977. The program will also include musical performances by Liz Magnes, one of Israel’s most dynamic and creative solo jazz pianists, and Raquel Solomon, poet and guitarist.

Julia Santoli's Siren Sore: 'spirit is matter' with Tamio Shiraishi / 'the prisoners are becoming ambient' with Geng - Issue Project Room
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

Thursday, April 12th, Julia Santoli opens her 2018 ISSUE residency with the premiere of two new works within her "Siren Sore" cycle: a mutant project of myriad form manifesting as visual project, recording album, and live performance through genre-crossing collaborations. Santoli describes the work(s) as retaining the narrative accessibility of song structures, but melding with the physical import of a site-specific sonic approach. Through studying the transmission of body through voice, the "siren" emerges as a voice beyond the locus of capture or control -- an avenger of bodies transgressed. The evening premieres two new works within a sculptural landscape: "spirit is matter" with saxophonist Tamio Shiraishi, and "the prisoners are becoming ambient" with electronic artist and PTP label-head Geng. Julia Santoli is a Brooklyn-based artist and experimental musician. Creating immersive and precarious environments with voice, feedback, electronics, and installation, her work deals with intergenerational hauntings and reclamation through the body. She has presented solo and collaborative works at Queens Museum, Flux Factory, ISSUE Project Room, New York Live Arts, Judson Memorial Church, LUMP, Disjecta, Widow Jane Mine cave, GRACE Exhibition Space, Panoply Performance Laboratory; as well as presented and taught workshops during a 5-month residency in Spinnerei, Leipzig, DE.

Leah Umansky: The Barbarous Century w/ Sarah Gerard - Books Are Magic
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

Leah Umansky visits Books Are Magic to celebrate her new poetry book The Barbarous Century. The Barbarous Century is a journey through the stories that inform us and the stories we tell ourselves. Confessional without being confessional, and with compelling wordplay and lyricism, Umansky illustrates the many challenges we all face in being human: how to be good in a world gone wrong. It uses varied dystopias embedded in myth, story, technology and popular culture to highlight the struggle of being a woman in the 21st century. With longing, resentment, humor and desire, these intriguing poems highlight the want for an easier and gentler way to navigate this world we call ours. Leah will be in conversation with Sarah Gerard, author of Sunshine State and Binary Star.

Rita Coolidge - The Cutting Room
April 12, 2018 - New York

Most music fans have a favorite song recorded by two-time GRAMMY® award-winner Rita Coolidge? "Fever," "We're All Alone," "One Fine Day," "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher & Higher," "The Way You Do The Things You Do," "All Time High," "Superstar," and so many other memorable tracks that topped the charts from the 1970?s onward. Rita Coolidge's impact is undiminished—her voice as pure, sweet and powerful as ever and her ability to get inside a song honed by experience and overview. "I guess the fact that I'm still here means I must be doing something right," she laughs. "It's good to know that people who've liked what I do for all these years still like what I do, and at the same time it sounds good to people who weren't even born when I started out."

Dead Horses - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
April 12, 2018 - New York

At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos' world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses' stunning new album, 'My Mother the Moon," a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience. Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Earthy and organic, Vos' songs often reveal themselves to be exercises in empathy and outreach; she writes not only to find meaning in the struggles she's endured, but also to embrace kindred souls on their own personal journeys of self-discovery. As much as the album is a reckoning with the past and everything she witnessed growing up (mental illness, poverty, addiction, and violence), it's also an effort to shape the future, to build a community based around art and love and beauty and acceptance, a community to replace the one she was so brusquely robbed of as a child.

Ruby Boots - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
April 12, 2018 - New York

Nashville-based, Australian-born artist Ruby Boots has signed with Chicago label Bloodshot Records and will release her label debut Don't Talk about It on February 9th, 2018.

At 14 years old, Ruby Boots—real name Bex Chilcott—left a conflicted home in Perth, Western Australia to do grueling work on pearling boats, and she hasn't stopped migrating since. Her nomadic streak has taken her around the world, and eventually to Nashville, TN.

The Mallett Brothers Band, Jon Fishman - Brooklyn Bowl
April 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Mallett Brothers Band's busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds. Texas Hill Country Explore Magazine calls them "New England's wildly eclectic crew of genre rebels." Bill Copeland Music News says "Combining their authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style that perceives stories on the level of epic myth, it's like William Faulkner has been resurrected with an electric guitar in hand.. While remaining fully independent, The Mallett Brothers Band has performed at some of the country's top venues and festivals, including Austin Texas's famed Continental Club; Alexandria, Virginia's Birchmere (sharing the stage with Oklahoma red-dirt rockers The Turnpike Troubadors), New Hampshire's Meadowbrook Pavilion (opening for The Allman Brothers Band, and again opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd); Nashville's Bluebird; and Little Rock's The Rev Room, to name a few. Festival appearances include FloydFest (Virginia), Hop Jam (Vermont), Nateva (Maine), The New England Country Music Festival (New Hampshire), Eastbound Throwdown (New York), and many more. "The Falling of the Pine," the band's most recent release, reimagines a group of 19th Century Maine folk songs collected in the 1927 book "Minstrelsy of Maine."

First, a Curator's Talk on their exhibition Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Melville Gallery, 213 Water Street, NYC.

Then, a special walking tour exploring Titanic's life and legacy, Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15, at 12pm and 2pm This April marks the 106th anniversary of the Titanic disaster. Join the Seaport Museum's historian, and curator of Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 for special programs commemorating the brief life and journey of the RMS Titanic. First Join us during a special curators talk for an in-depth look at the exhibition: Millions, and New York's special relationship with ocean liners. Then on Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15, join the Seaport Museum for a special walking tour to commemorate the 106th anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic, and the legacy of Titanic's brief life. From Schermerhorn Row to the Brooklyn Bridge, the Seaport District is full of surprising connections to many of Titanic's passengers. Come and discover these forgotten ties between the ill-fated liner and South Street. Tickets are $20 for members or $25 for non-members and can be purchased at seaportmuseum.org/seaportwalkingtours/ or in person at the main Museum building at 12 Fulton Street, NYC. About the Exhibition Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 is one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First Class and Third Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century. Ships like Titanic, Olympic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, and Imperator dominated transatlantic travel. On each voyage, they transported thousands of people, First-Class passengers sailed across the Atlantic in the lap of luxury while Third-Class passengers made the voyage in the stuffy lower decks.  From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart. This exhibition features both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition highlights a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87). Ambrose, a floating lighthouse, stood watch at the front door to New York Harbor during the greatest period of immigration in US history. Her official duty was to mark the entrance to the Ambrose Channel, a deep channel dredged between 1900 and 1907 to allow larger ocean liners, the largest of which had doubled in size in those same years, safe access into the harbor. But Ambrosehad another vital role; her light was the first thing an immigrant would see as they entered New York Harbor, long before the buildings and piers on the waterfront, long before the Manhattan skyline, and long before the lighted torch of the Statue of Liberty. Evoking the spirit of First-Class grandeur, a piece of wood paneling that once adorned the interior of the Smoking Room of the RMS Mauretania will be recreated by master woodcarver Deborah Mills throughout the run of the show. This work-in-progress will be on view in the exhibition space during regular hours Thursday through Sunday. Each Wednesday visitors can visit the Museum's Maritime Craft Center at 209 Water Street and watch as the artist brings the piece closer to the original. Throughout the exhibition, there will be screenings of films which feature ocean liners and immigrants in their critical roles in New York Harbor life at a time when this city was the busiest port in the world.  The exhibition familiarizes viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history. The exhibition is curated by William Roka, Historian, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections and Curatorial Assistant, at the Seaport Museum. Exhibition design and art direction by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum's historic letterpress shop. Lectures and all-ages public programs will take place throughout the length of the exhibition. The exhibition is included with Museum admission: South Street Seaport Museum members: FREE, $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $6 for children ages 2 - 17. Tickets can be purchased online at www.southstreetseaportmuseum.org/ or in person at 12 Fulton St. This exhibition is made possible by generous support from Theodore W. Scull and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. 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."

POSTPONED - Mike & the Moonpies - Hill Country Live
April 12, 2018 - New York

'The brand of country on "The Real Country," the debut album from Mike and the Moonpies, is extremely adaptable. Some of the music, like the steady blues bounce of "Water on the Rocks" or the relaxed Southern sway of "Matrimony," call for cordial two-stepping in an upscale dance hall. But if you were to hear the twangy romp of the title track's steel guitar riffs at, say, the band's Aug. 12 gig at the Mohawk, you couldn't help spilling your Lone Star before you scuttled across the dance floor. It's fitting, then, that the Moonpies feel at home all over town. They're in their element among the rough-edged rock elites on Red River, but they also held the release party for "The Real Country" at the historic Continental Club, and they're veterans of the tiny Drag dive the Hole in the Wall. Ultimately, "The Real Country" is exactly what it claims to be — Texas country for Texans, played straight from the heart of Texas.'

J.S. Bach: The Art of Fugue - Italian Academy of Columbia University
April 12, 2018 - New York

J. S. BACH - THE ART OF FUGUE Fretwork Ensemble Illustrated talk by Richard Boothby Counterpoint was a constant preoccupation throughout J.S. Bach's life and The Art of Fugue, one of his last works, was the culmination of this lifelong obsession. It has long been supposed that the composer's death interrupted its completion, yet recently other possibilities and theories have been suggested. Richard Boothby presents an illustrated performance with his group Fretwork, whose celebrated recording of this remarkable work is their best-selling album, and discusses some of the music's most intriguing features. The evening will conclude with an analysis of the final fugue and a performance of a possible reconstruction of its missing final bars. 45.

The Archeology of Poetry—Digging the Moment with t'ai freedom ford - Poets House
April 12, 2018 - New York

By definition, archeology is the study of human history through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains. By definition, poetry is a similar pursuit: poets excavate sites (and sights), unearthing and examining artifacts in an attempt to understand humanity. In this way, we will consider memories, photographs, and personal geographies as artifacts in order to get at a specific moment in time. By digging beyond the surface and examining these moments, one can begin to make sense of both personal and public histories. We will, of course, look to fellow poet-archeologists like Seamus Heaney, Tracy K. Smith, Kevin Young, Lucille Clifton, and others for inspiration and conversation around the writing/digging process.

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.

The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home, with guest appearances at Feinstein's/54 Below, The Triad, The Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret, Clocktower Cabaret in Denver, and Voodoo Comedy Lounge in Denver.

The Party: A Musical - The City College of New York - Aaron Davis Hall
April 13, 2018 - New York

Paul Laurence Dunbar wrote lyrics for the first all African-American musical produced on Broadway called "In Dahomey" (1903). His poem "The Party" is being re-imagined as a new musical written and directed by Bobby Lewis. "The Party" portrays the dream life of slaves on a southern plantation as we glimpse at a perfect day away from their toils and struggles as they come together from four plantations to have a party.

Young Galaxy, Sound of Ceres - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Finding beauty in the everyday may sometimes be a tricky task, but the best art does just that - holds up a mirror to the small yet significant details that make up our lives. In an era where the world seems to move at warp speed and incisive reflection is limited to the latest blog post, Montreal band Young Galaxy's songs remind us of the richness of our universal experiences - from love and loss to despair and hope. Invisible Republic, Young Galaxy's sophomore release, builds upon founding duo Stephen Ramsay (guitars, vocals) and Catherine McCandless' (keyboards, vocals) penchant for transforming the mundane into the fantastic - catchy hooks build into epic crescendos, while political and ethical concerns share space with emotional observations.

Toumani Diabaté + Sidiki Diabaté - Brooklyn Bowl
April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

In a rare father-and-son collaboration, Toumani Diabaté, genius of African music and widely recognised as the greatest living kora player, has recorded an album of duets with his son Sidiki, the instrument's emerging star. Described as "the finest Toumani collaboration since his classic work with Ali Farka Touré" (The Guardian) 'Toumani & Sidiki' is a dialogue conducted through the kora, the 21-string West African harp which the Diabaté dynasty has elevated into the most iconic of African instruments. Father-and-son collaborations are rare enough but the ties binding Toumani and Sidiki Diabaté are particularly profound and evocative. Descended from a line of griots - custodians of the ancient oral traditions of West Africa's Mandé people stretching back seven hundred years - the names Toumani and Sidiki are significant names in the annals of African music. Toumani's father, Sidiki senior, recorded the first ever kora album, the classic Mali: Ancient Strings, in 1970, unwrapping the instruments potential as a virtuosic lead instrument. His son Toumani has taken it further, weaving together bass lines, ancient melodies and astonishing improvisations to create a kaleidoscope of musical colours. Since recording the first solo kora album in 1988, he has brought the instrument to the world, with albums, tours, GRAMMY awards and collaborations with the likes of Ali Farka Touré, Taj Mahal, Herbie Hancock, Damon Albarn and Bjork. Toumani has also built an impressive array of fans along the way, including President Barack Obama, who chose Toumani's collaboration with Taj Mahal as his all-time favourite album. Toumani's eldest son Sidiki moves things forward again. In Mali's capital Bamako the 23 year old is a star. Voted Mali's best beat maker in 2013, Sidiki runs his own recording and programming studio and alongside rapper 'Iba One' is one half of the country's premier hip-hop duo, who fill the 20,000 seater Modibo Keita stadium. At the same time he has a deep knowledge of Mande culture and a formidable technique on the kora. "It's a dream to play with my father" he says. "Yes I'm a hip-hop artist, but I love and respect my roots as a kora player, I want to know more. It's my chance to learn directly from my father. It's extra special because my father is my idol." The album is a set of unaccompanied kora duets, recorded with little rehearsal (and for some songs no rehearsal) as 'live' with no overdubs at RAK studios north London. World Circuit's team of producer Nick Gold and engineer Jerry Boys (Ali Farka Touré, Buena Vista Social Club, Orchestra Baobab) is complemented by co-producer Lucy Duran (producer of Toumani's previous albums). Recorded in stereo Toumani can be heard in the left speaker and Sidiki on the right. The repertoire is based on a combination of obscure, almost forgotten kora pieces and a new look at some Mande classics from Mali. "We're not going backwards, trying to play just how my father and grandfather did these songs," says Toumani. "We have to do it our way. We're modern griots, we live in the city, we're connected to the world. Speaking of his desire to transmit ancestral repertoire in a contemporary manner Toumani describes the album as ""The past meets the present for the future."" The album arrives in the wake of the recent hard-line Islamic insurgency where a ban on music was attempted in the north of Mali. With this album Toumani wanted "to show the positive side of Mali", to reassert the legacy of a country with access to untold musical riches. The songs are named, in griot tradition, to honour various people, places or events. The playing is extraordinary. There is telepathic communication, the finishing of each other's musical sentences - dazzling musicianship. The kora is the quietest of instruments but is here played with verve and attack, groove, wit, swing and bounce, ecstatic excitement and exquisite intimacy. And always with a flowing pulse and groove. 'Toumani & Sidiki' sounds unlike any other album of kora duets.

AdHoc Presents U.S. Girls - Baby's All Right
April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

This year marks a significant anniversary for U.S. Girls, the protean musical enterprise of multi-disciplinary artist, Meg Remy. 10 years ago Remy first used a 4-track recorder and a microphone to self-produce a series of spontaneous, starkly musical, 'instant expressions'. These collisions of static, clang and sung melody seem in retrospect like a uniquely American display of minimalism, an unmistakably feminine counterbalance to Nebraska or Rev & Vega's early sonic confrontations. In contrast, her latest work for 4AD and Royal Mountain Records, In A Poem Unlimited, Remy's 6th album and 2nd LP for the label, was painstakingly crafted in multiple studios by a creative cast of 20+ collaborators. Remy traverses an immediate and increasingly politicized vision over the course of this decade of work. And while U.S. Girls, denoting the plural, is no longer a misnomer, In A Poem Unlimited may be Remy's most individually distilled protest to date.

In a time when everything is big, fast and bombastic, it's rare to find an artist who can hush a room with just the power of her voice or the will of her pen.

Long lauded for her ability to whirl pure emotion into unforgettable tracks, Starfire is a raw, visceral journey about love, hardship and the struggle to pave your own way, all anchored by her unforgettable tone. A few minutes of listening and one thing becomes abundantly clear: there is no one better to sing the music of Caitlyn Smith than Smith herself.

Televizor - First Time in USA - DROM
April 13, 2018 - New York

Legends of Russian rock and pioneers of electronic new wave, TELEVIZOR was formed in 1984 in St.Petersburg (back then -- Leningrad). Mikhail Borzikin, the band's lead singer, songwriter, keyboardist and producer, has always held uncompromising stance radically opposing authoritarianism in any imaginable form. From the 1980s, when he sang uncensored songs with overtly political messages at KGB-controlled Leningrad Rock Club and led thousands-strong march to Smolny to oppose the city government cancelling rock festival, to the present day, when he takes active part in anti-Putin opposition, participates in protest meetings and releases songs like "Forgive us, Ukraine!" he is the very personification of the idea of staying true to oneself -- both in his music and his life in general. This only show at DROM is the very first concert of TELEVIZOR as a full band in the USA, dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the cult classic album "????????? ???????" ("Fatherland of Illusions") featuring such super-hits as "Your Dad is a Fascist", "Fed Up to the Neck", "Children are Walking Away", etc. This is also the U.S. presentation of the band's recent album "?????????" ("IchThyosaur"). Russian guests will be supported by their friends from NYC, a new wave / alternative electronica act INTERZONA, (unofficially) presenting their new album "Secret Sessions".

April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Finding beauty in the everyday may sometimes be a tricky task, but the best art does just that - holds up a mirror to the small yet significant details that make up our lives. In an era where the world seems to move at warp speed and incisive reflection is limited to the latest blog post, Montreal band Young Galaxy's songs remind us of the richness of our universal experiences - from love and loss to despair and hope. Invisible Republic, Young Galaxy's sophomore release, builds upon founding duo Stephen Ramsay (guitars, vocals) and Catherine McCandless' (keyboards, vocals) penchant for transforming the mundane into the fantastic - catchy hooks build into epic crescendos, while political and ethical concerns share space with emotional observations. 'Our mandate for this record was: if it doesn't make you move, it better make you cry,' quips Ramsay. 'Even better is making someone cry and dance at the same time. It makes a lot of people uncomfortable, but I like it!' Invisible Republic is the product of a long musical and personal journey for Ramsay and McCandless, who first burst onto the Canadian music scene in 2007 with their eponymous debut album, which included stunning first single 'Swing Your Heartache.' Following extensive touring across North America and Europe that saw Young Galaxy play alongside acts like Metric, The Frames, Peter, Bjorn and John, Death Cab For Cutie, and Stars, touring members of the band returned to various other concerns, leaving only bassist Stephen Kamp alongside Ramsay and McCandless.

PINK MEXICO - Union Pool
April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

"Landing somewhere between My Bloody Valentine's poppiest moments, Wavves least bratty missives, the result is something like if Nirvana had had a surf rock phase." – Noisey "Brooklyn via LA Pink Mexico plays a gritty brand of fuzz rock, but their airy melodies with psychedelic inflections counteract the harshness of their distorted sound." – The Deli "…the kind of fuzzy, driving garage punk that you can always trust Burger to put out." – BrooklynVegan "…one heckuva skronky/crunchy high that you never want to end." – Impose After playing drums for countless other bands, including Shilpa Ray and WALTZ, Robert Preston went for a change and began his solo project, Pink Mexico. After moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, Preston self-released the first Pink Mexico LP, pnik mxeico, in June of 2013, attracting the attention of Austin-based record label Fleeting Youth Records, who then re-released pnik mxeico the following December. Preston relocated to Brooklyn in the fall of 2014 to begin recording his next album while continuing other releases: a split 7" with Los Angeles-based band, SunLikeDrugs as well as a 12" vinyl pressing of pnik mxeico by Bordeaux, France based label Big Tomato Records. The underground buzz surrounding the first LP led Preston into the Burger Records family. Following countless Brooklyn shows and making the rounds at this year's SXSW, Pink Mexico has grown as a band comprised of Grady Walker & Ian Everall.

This production can be described as an extravaganza in which "Great Gatsby meets Mad Men meets Video Vixens." Guilty Pleasures Cabaret was founded in 2014 by six friends in New York City who wanted to produce a show that highlighted both their performing and creative talents. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born - thus earning their name "Guilty Pleasures Cabaret." The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months, moved downtown where they sold out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home, with guest appearances at Feinstein's/54 Below, The Triad, The Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret, Clocktower Cabaret in Denver, and Voodoo Comedy Lounge in Denver.

Scholars@hallwalls: 'Ex Machina: The Tragedy In The Machine' - University at Buffalo
April 13, 2018 - New York

Professor Monroe's talk argues for a deep connection between the rise of Pascalian probability, the interest in automata, the use of theater machines, and Aristotelian ideas of dramatic verisimilitude (i.e., likelihood) and catastrophe. As an interpretation of Aristotle, the Classical unities of time, place and action seek to formalize the circumstances of a happening on the stage. Drama becomes a forum for performing cause and effect, probing probability, exploring plausible outcomes, and wondering about the nature fate, chance, and necessity. The early modern play is a meditation on what constitutes an event.

Terrace Martin & Friends: Produced by Jill Newman Productions - National Sawdust
April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Among the most versatile musicians and producers of his generation, Terrace Martin has worked extensively with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Lalah Hathaway, and Herbie Hancock, and as a leader has a Grammy nomination to show for his creative synthesis of jazz, R&B, and hip-hop. The first record the young Martin bought was EPMD's single "You Gots to Chill." While his love of hip-hop continued to grow, he also began to appreciate jazz through his father, a drummer. After playing keyboards for several years as a teenager, Martin picked up the saxophone and within a few years landed a gig with P. Diddy. Shortly thereafter, he began a long-term association with Snoop Dogg and gained a college scholarship via Jay Leno after the Tonight Show Band's Kevin Eubanks heard his playing. Martin kicked off his production career in 2004 with work for 213, Shawnna, and others, and in 2005 he worked with a pair of West Coast legends, landing a track with Warren G along with three cuts on the collection Bigg Snoop Dogg Presents: Welcome to tha Chuuch – Da Album. Snoop also gave Martin his first production credit on a single when "Neva Have 2 Worry" dropped in 2008. That same year he released the mixtape Locke High with DJ Drama as host. The year 2010 saw him partnering with DJ Devi Dev on the mixtape Here, My Dear. In 2011 he joined forces with rapper Murs for Are Melrose, and worked with Devi Dev on the Sex EP. The next year, Martin contributed to Kendrick Lamar's breakthrough, good kid, m.A.A.d city. His first solo album, 3ChordFold, arrived in 2013 with appearances from Lamar, Snoop, Ab-Soul, Robert Glasper, and others.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure Cabaret Cinema: Time - Rubin Museum of Art
April 13, 2018 - New York

Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) absolutely must pass their history class in order to save their future. The two seemingly dumb teens set off on a quest to prepare the ultimate historical presentation with the help of a time machine that takes them to meet Napoleon Bonaparte, Billy the Kid, Socrates, Joan of Arc, and others. About Cabaret Cinema: Time Curated by Rubin Museum fellow and neuroscientist David Eagleman, Cabaret Cinema delves into the mysteries of time. Aside from their listed duration, movies often carry us through periods far beyond the minutes that pass as we sit in a theater. The narrative compulsion of "what happens next" can suspend time, be warped through sudden flashbacks, and inspire us to imagine a future beyond the two-dimensional celluloid. What does the world of cinema reveal about our experience of time?

Toumani Diabaté, Sidiki Diabaté, Night 1! - Brooklyn Bowl
April 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

In a rare father-and-son collaboration, Toumani Diabaté, genius of African music and widely recognised as the greatest living kora player, has recorded an album of duets with his son Sidiki, the instrument's emerging star. Described as "the finest Toumani collaboration since his classic work with Ali Farka Touré" (The Guardian) 'Toumani & Sidiki' is a dialogue conducted through the kora, the 21-string West African harp which the Diabaté dynasty has elevated into the most iconic of African instruments. Father-and-son collaborations are rare enough but the ties binding Toumani and Sidiki Diabaté are particularly profound and evocative. Descended from a line of griots - custodians of the ancient oral traditions of West Africa's Mandé people stretching back seven hundred years - the names Toumani and Sidiki are significant names in the annals of African music. Toumani's father, Sidiki senior, recorded the first ever kora album, the classic Mali: Ancient Strings, in 1970, unwrapping the instruments potential as a virtuosic lead instrument. His son Toumani has taken it further, weaving together bass lines, ancient melodies and astonishing improvisations to create a kaleidoscope of musical colours. Since recording the first solo kora album in 1988, he has brought the instrument to the world, with albums, tours, GRAMMY awards and collaborations with the likes of Ali Farka Touré, Taj Mahal, Herbie Hancock, Damon Albarn and Bjork. Toumani has also built an impressive array of fans along the way, including President Barack Obama, who chose Toumani's collaboration with Taj Mahal as his all-time favourite album.

Joan La Barbara: The Wanderlusting of Joseph C. - The Met Fifth Avenue
April 13, 2018 - New York

Composer and performer Joan La Barbara has been mining the life and work of Joseph Cornell for many years. In this free with Museum admission performance she presents selections from her epic song cycle "The Wanderlusting of Joseph C." along with "Windows" and "Habité par ses rêves et les phantasms". Inspired by the obsessions, visions, and dreams of the American visual artist Joseph Cornell, "The Wanderlusting of Joseph C." is a new song cycle composed by Joan La Barbara with lyrics by Monique Truong. "Wanderlust," a word coined by Cornell and appearing often in his journals, captures the two longings, the two impossibilities–travel and eros–of this man's outwardly quiet, staid life. In his dreams and his art though, Joseph C. transcends and revels in both wander and lust. The dreamscape prelude to the song cycle is "Windows," a 'sonic atmosphere' La Barbara created from 13 years of instrumental, vocal, and natural sound recordings, inspired by Cornell's journal entries and ethereal boxes and whispers from Virginia Woolf. "Habité par ses rêves et les phantasms" (2009) for voice and handheld percussion is the first work she composed inspired by Cornell and uses fragments from Joseph Cornell's journals that describe elements of dreams, the catalysts for much of his work, to generate my sonic reflections.

General Admission. For dinner before the show, please call 212-255-4544. Please let host know you're coming for the show and would like to be sat in club before show. After you dine, room will be reset for show. You, however, may remain in club and hang at the bar as we reset the room and get first dibs at a primo spot before doors open. ALL SALES FINAL. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES. Jim White gets around. When he's not releasing his own critically acclaimed solo albums he splits time producing records for other songwriters, exhibiting his visual art in galleries and museums across the US and Europe and publishing award winning fiction. His sixth solo studio album, the bizarrely titled Waffles, Triangles & Jesus, is a mind-bending joy ride of sonic influences featuring a bevy of his hometown Athens' roots musicians, plus west coast indie darlings Dead Rock West, and rock and roll maverick Holly Golightly. Prior to Waffles, Triangles & Jesus, White released five eclectic, totally uncatagorizable albums plus another six even stranger side projects. Numerous songs from his back catalog have appeared both in film and television, with his Primus-esque Word-Mule being featured in Breaking Bad, and more recently his cautionary rocker Crash Into The Sun appearing in Ray McKinnon's highly praised Sundance Channel series Rectify. Raised in Pensacola, Florida, a town crushed between the church and heroin, Jim's songs reach deep into the underbelly of the South. One time Pentacostal, fashion model, New York taxi driver, drifter, pro-surfer, photographer, film-maker, his music is the conduit for all the stories he collected along the way. His previous albums 'Wrong-Eyed Jesus' [1997], 'No Such Place' [2001] and 'Drill a Hole in That Substrate…' [2004] were acclaimed as masterpieces of 'outer space alt.country' and established Jim as a phenomenal maverick talent. Jim also starred in the BBC4 film 'Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus', an award-winning road-movie exploring Southern culture through its music and stories. Now living in an old farmhouse in the backwoods of Georgia, Jim White may have finally reached a place called home, but his other search, for what he calls 'the gold tooth in God's crooked smile' continues in this new set of backyard tales

Through April 13, 2018 - New York City

Bernstein has four characters search for faith in a New York City bar while Shostakovich's symphony flirts with danger. W. H. Auden's poem "The Age of Anxiety," an eclogue on man's spiritual quest, inspired the pulsing jazz piano and vivid orchestral colors of Bernstein's Symphony No. 2. Echoes of Mahler are evident in Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4, especially the emotional arc of its finale. The composer cancelled the symphony's 1936 premiere knowing its unorthodox style ran against Soviet cultural policy—a mistake that could have cost him his freedom or more.

Film: Human Flow by Ai Weiwei and talk with NY Director of UNHCR, Ninette Kelley - Parrish Art Museum
April 13, 2018 - Water Mill

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future.

Born January 23, 1982 in Lawrence, MA, Patrick Baril was exposed to production equipment at a very early age, tinkering with his parents' eight-track machine, cassette recorders, and turntable. By middle school, he was already DJing school functions, but he was inspired to be a true wheels-of-steel artiste after hearing DJ Premier scratch and mix records on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 radio show. Soon after, at 14 years old, he purchased his first turntables and mixer. Calling himself DJ Statik (the "Selektah" surname came later), he started to work clubs and private parties up and down the New England coast.

Alan Doyle (of Great Big Sea) w/ Donovan Woods - City Winery
April 13, 2018 - New York

Alan Doyle chalks up a lot of where is he right now—with both his third solo album and his second book released in October 2017—to luck. "I'm the luckiest guy I've ever even heard of," he says. "This was all I ever wanted, a life in the music business, singing concerts. I was lucky to be born in the family I was, in Petty Harbour. I was lucky that Sean, Bob and Darrell found me and asked me to join their band. I was lucky the Canadian music fans were into it." And yet, one listen to A Week at The Warehouse makes it plainly clear that there's a lot more than luck at play in this decades long, awards-studded career. This album, recorded live off the floor with Doyle's "beautiful band," as he calls them, with producer Bob Rock at the helm, is chock-a-block with country-tinged, radio ready tunes that bring with them the flavour of some of Doyle's favourite artists, from John Mellencamp to Rock's own band, Payolas (In fact, Doyle covers a Payolas tune on this album, Forever Light Will Shine, with that band's singer, Paul Hyde appearing as a guest vocalist.) In addition to Rock's work with Payolas, Doyle loved the metal albums Rock produced in the eighties, and his more recent work with the Tragically Hip, Jann Arden, and others. "It's a real treat to get to meet your heroes and they turn out to be nicer than you ever imagined," Doyle says. "A couple things about Bob, he's first of all, still a massive fan of a good song, for a man who's seen hundreds and thousands of them, he's still thrilled to get a chance to work on a good song with a good band in a good studio, that's still a perfect day for him. And secondly he's just a wonderful motivator to get great players to play at their best."

Sidi Touré - Brooklyn Bowl
April 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

ARTIST INFO SIDI TOURÉ FacebookTwitterInstagram Sidi Touré is a highly acclaimed practitioner of Songhaï Music with two Malian National Arts Awards for best singer. Touré led Gao's regional orchestra, The Songhaï Stars, prior to going out on his own. In 2011, he released Sahel Folk, his debut album for Thrill Jockey, touring North America and Europe for the first time. For his fourth release,Toubalbero (a big traditional drum used to call and gather people in Gao) Touré has created a danceable, dynamic, and joyous album played with some of the most exiting new faces on the Mailian music scene. A revered leader who has his feet deep in the Northern Mali music tradition has created an album, despite the region's significant political challenges, that brims with optimism. For his first Electro Acoustic album Sidi Touré (vocals, guitar and calabash) is joined by bassist Baba Traoré, drummer Mamadou "Mandou" Kone (who also plays with Vieux Farka Touré), electric guitarist Djadjé Traoré, N'Goni (traditional Malian guitar) Ousmane "Papou" Dagnon, and vocalist Babou Diallo. This is a reflection of his performance style of the last three years throughout Mali. The music is a celebration driven by the energy and groove of the rhythms. Toubalbero is exhilarating trance music overflowing with joy and carried by thebeauty of Sidi's voice. Previous Sidi Touré albums were recorded in a modest tin-roofed studio in Bamako. The recording sessions had to be timed around Mali's rainy season in order to avoid the noise created by the rain pelting the roof. Toubalbero was recorded over the course of four days at Studio Bogolan, one of the best in Mali where artists that include Ali Farka Touré, Rokia Traoré, Toumani Diabate and Björk have recorded. The album was recorded by Yaya Cissé and produced by Nicolas "Covalesky" Richard. The songs were recorded live to tape in order to capture the energy of the performance. The album was also mixed entirely live by Jason Meagher at Black Dirt Studio (Steve Gunn, Jack Rose). The approach mirrored the live mix of a performance, an approach to mixing in part inspired by the great King Tubby, whose results retain all the joy and energy of the performance. The songs are steeped in Malian culture and traditions. "Hendjero Moulaye" (the slippery fish) is a cautionary tale not unlike the western folksy idiom "don't count your chickens before they've hatched." In this, we hear of the perils of a man who bragged about his very big fish while on the way to catch it. The song is a warning to not sell your fish before you get it from the river. "BK" is an homage to Baba Belkatras, a legend of Songhai music. "Tchirey" is about the kings of the Holleys, the djinn of thunder. For Sidi the song is a call for help from Marou Tchirey for the Songhai people. Sidi wrote this song in 1984 and it won the Bamako Biennale. It was the first time that a Vaudou (possession) Songhai song was played with non-traditional instruments. There are songs of love: "DJiribi Mardjie," and "Handaraïzo" (the small star), and of family: "Hannah" (the vigil for a newborn) and "Sitiali Boubou" (honoring the ancestor). Perhapshe song that captures the spirit of the album most clearly is Heyyeya, an expression to describe a shout of joy. It is based on a Songhai folklore song about the joy of a new marriage. It is a celebration of the beauty of this moment of pure happiness. Sidi Touré Toubalbero is an exuberant and irresistible call out for unity and peace for Malians and Africans. Much like the drum that gathers folks in Goa, this album's aim is to unite through joyous expression for the greater good of all. Unity is strength and joy is unstoppable.

Skeletal Family, DJ Sean Templar, DJ Jarek Zelazny, DJ Patrick - Mercury Lounge
April 14, 2018 - New York

Skeletal Family Formed in Keighley, West Yorkshire, England during the Post Punk of early 1980's out of the band 'The Elements", took their name from the title of the song "Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family" from the 1974 David Bowie album, Diamond Dogs. Something unique was brewing up a dark and broody storm in West Yorkshire at the time with bands like The Sisters Of Mercy, The March Violets, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Southern Death Cult (later became The Cult) forming the basis of what became the soundtracks to the Goth Subculture. Skeletal Family soon gained popularity in the UK Independent Charts and furiously gigged the length and breadth of the UK and Europe, recorded tracks for the John Peels Sessions, supported The Sisters of Mercy during their 1984 Black October tour, released 2 studio albums 'Burning Oil' (1984) and 'Futile Combat' (1985) of which saw the release of Skeletal Family's most successful single 'Promised Land' on Red Rhino record label. Anne-Marie left Skeletal Family in 1985 to form Ghost Dance with Gary Marx, former guitarist of The Sisters Of Mercy. The remaining members of Skeletal Family briefly continued before disbanding in 1986. Skeletal Family reformed in 2003 with Stan and Trotwood along with Karl Heinz. Anne-Marie rejoined her fellow band members in 2012 after she released her solo album 'Day Of All Days' in 2011. In 2015, Cherry Red Records released Eternal, a definitive CD box set of Skeletal Family's back catalogue. They have remained one of the original Gothic Rocks bands staying true to their sound and have continued to tour and perform world-wide including Mexico, Poland and the US as well as regular headliners at Whitby Goth Weekend and Wave Gotik Treffen.

Faith & Work Conference: Formed to Work for the Glory of God - Redeemer Presbyterian Church Offices - W83 Ministry Center
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

We live in a city that's driven by ambition and desperate for rest. But the gospel responds with a critical question: to what end? The gospel uniquely gives us a radical new vision that our work is for the glory of God: the issue is not that we expect too much from our work, but that we have come to expect too little. When we see that work is created to glorify God, our work doesn't necessarily get easier, but it does become more meaningful. The pain in our work is faced with greater honesty, where the brokenness can finally be named and seen. The unseen potential of our work is faced with greater imagination, where an innovative spirit can unleash what yearns to be resurrected. In short, when we discover that we're formed to work for God's glory, we find that our small tasks aren't so small, and our big tasks are in better hands. Work becomes desirable. Rest becomes possible. Faith becomes essential. Join us for a two-day experience where we'll investigate how we are formed to work for the glory of God. Artists and educators, designers and technicians, homemakers, engineers, managers, entrepreneurs, doctors, and everyone in between are welcome. Speakers will include Tim Keller, Katherine Leary Alsdorf, David H. Kim, and Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, founder of the Central Park Conservancy, as well as over 20 Glimpse opportunities throughout NYC centered around work, culture and Sabbath.

"I grew up with the show. I take this opportunity, this job, immensely seriously and with great awe." – Chris Thile "Garrison created a template that I think is immortal. It doesn't feel like any kind of constraint. It's like a license. I feel like I have my license to go and make some good radio. … The prospect of getting to make things for people on a weekly basis … is beyond compare. It's what I love to do." — Chris Thile "Chris is my man. … He is, I think, the great bluegrass performer of our time and he is a beautiful jazz player. There just isn't anything he can't do — and he is very enthusiastic about live radio." - Garrison Keillor "The best idea I've had since Powdermilk Biscuits." – Garrison Keillor on selecting Chris Thile as new host of A Prairie Home Companion Complete show information at www.prairiehome.org .

Tristen - Union Pool
April 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

Pop savant, Tristen, a mononymous singer-songwriter, musician, and beloved member of Nashville's underground scene, is known for her "knack for penning an infectious hook" (Entertainment Weekly). She has released three albums to critical acclaim: Charlatans at the Garden Gate (2011), CAVES (2013), and Sneaker Waves, which was released last year via Austin label Modern Outsider. She also performed as a member of Jenny Lewis's live band in 2015. Rolling Stone describes Sneaker Waves as having "Nilsson-worthy power balladry" and NPR's Ann Powers illuminates the album as "bursting with great melodies and hooky arrangements that tickle the ear and won't leave your brain alone. Vintage keyboards or retro-modern guitar parts enhance Tristen's sometimes fantastical, often hilarious, always perceptive vignettes about complicated relationships, artistic ambition, and the ever-present shadow of mortality". A serenade with a bite, Tristen's live band features her husband and collaborator, Buddy Hughen, on jangly, shredding electric guitar, who co-produced Sneaker Waves, as well as rotating cast of Nashville's finest as her rhythm section.

Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
April 14, 2018 - New York

"Ambition often follows talent, and Laura Cortese has an embarrassment of both. Her open-armed approach to her art reveals a determination to spread the word about folk music and dance without watering down their distinctiveness." - John Wenzel, The Denver Post Cutting her teeth as a sideman in Boston's roots music scene, Laura Cortese forged a unique path through a pool rich in talent (due to a large population of Berklee School of Music graduates like herself) including stints as an instrumentalist with Band of Horses, Pete Seeger, Rose Cousins, Jocie Adams (of the Low Anthem), and Uncle Earl. Her Compass Records debut, CALIFORNIA CALLING, is the next step in her career as a frontwoman and bandleader - she and her Dance Cards, break new ground with a bold and elegant new album, based in the lyrical rituals of folk music but exploring new territories of rhythm and sonics. With the support of Sam Kassirer, album producer of folk-pop favorites like Lake Street Dive and Joy Kills Sorrow, they've created something that's simultaneously rowdy, delicate and cinematic. This is post-folk that seriously rocks. On their CD release tour, Cellist Valerie Thompson (cello/vox), fiddler Jenna Moynihan (fiddle/vox), and Zoe Guigueno (bass/vox) pair their sophisticated string arrangements and rich vocal harmonies to band leader Laura Cortese's poignant and powerful singing.

In Japanese; English subtitles. 69 min. Masahiro Makino's breezy musical comedy about a ronin (masterless samurai) and three coquettish suitors was billed as "the rare operetta in which jazz bursts into the period film"—precisely the sort of well-crafted genre picture that Makino and his cinematographer Kazuo Miygawa produced with seeming effortlessness before the war. 35mm print courtesy the National Film Center; The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; and Nikkatsu.

In Japanese; English subtitles. 86 min. Though less well known than Susumu Hani's celebrated 1963 remake, Hiroshi Inagaki's Children Hand in Hand is nonetheless a heartbreaking portrait of childhood kindness and cruelty—and, by implication, conflicted ideals of masculinity—centering on a small-town boy with a learning disability who attempts to fit in with his classmates. 35mm print courtesy The Japan Foundation and Kadokawa.

Persona Non Granted by Will Rawls - New Museum
April 14, 2018 - New York

As part of Anna Craycroft's exhibition and residency "Motion into Being," presented during the Department of Education and Public Engagement's Spring 2018 R&D Season: ANIMATION, artist Will Rawls will respond to Craycroft's anthropomorphic animation project with three episodes exploring her objects as props and bodies, while investigating his own limited potential to fake animation. Interacting with the objects and media in Craycroft's exhibition, Rawls will scrutinize surface, storytelling, space, and texture to choreograph this series of unfortunate "persons." Will Rawls is a choreographer, writer, and performer. His practice engages relationships between language, image, architecture, sound, and dance to formulate non-disciplinary questions regarding humanity and social inscription. He frames the dancer within the racialized codes of art space, where systems of technique and power collide and can be critically unraveled by the personal. Rawls has shown work at Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (2017), ImPulsTanz (2016), MoMA P.S.1 (2016), Danspace Project (2016, 2015, 2012), Performa 15 (2015), and the Chocolate Factory (2013). His writing has been published by Artforum, Triple Canopy, les presses du réel, the Museum of Modern Art, the Hammer Museum, and Danspace Project. He is recipient of a 2017–18 Guggenheim Fellowship, a 2017 Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Residency, the Casinos Austria 2016 Prix Jardin d'Europe, and a 2015 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant.

Rosemary Loar: When Harry Met - Don't Tell Mama
April 14, 2018 - New York

When Harry Met The Duke highlights the musical similarities these two geniuses shared. Born six years apart, both Harold Arlen and Duke Ellington were the sons of musicians and both began playing with a band while still only teenagers. These two men changed the course of American popular music, with influence that reached into jazz, nightclubs, musical theatre and film, and are pivotal figures of The American Songbook. Coming from widely divergent backgrounds, each man composed with elegance and sophistication, yet incorporated a visceral sense that has its roots in America's blues tradition. Both men broke "the rules" of songwriting, not afraid to write challenging, unconventional melodies and unusual song structures.

El Cigala’s collaborations with prominent Latin American artists have earned him a reputation for seamlessly melding the rhythms and melodies of his Spanish Gitano heritage with styles ranging from bolero to son, tango and Afro-Caribbean jazz, leading NPR to identify him as “a musical game-changer, the rare musician who single-handedly alters the direction of a genre.” Opening for Diego el Cigala will be the Spanish vibrant and visionary flamenco pianist and composer ALEX CONDE. Produced by Lehman Center and Leo Tizol. Lehman Center for the Performing Arts is on the campus of Lehman College/CUNY at 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West, Bronx, NY 10468.

DIEGO “EL CIGALA” SALAZAR, who’s innovative, fiery vocals are rooted in the great flamenco tradition fused with other idioms from the Cuban bolero to the passionate Argentine tango, was born in the El Rastro district of Madrid into a musical family of Romani artists and intellectuals. When he was 12 years old, he won the Certamen Flamenco Joven de Getafe (Madrid flamenco competition for young singers) and an award on the Spanish TV show Gente Joven. As a teenager, he sang for well known flamenco dancers and on recordings by Camarón, Tomatito, Gerardo Núñez and Vicente Amigo. Nicknamed “El Cigala” (the little prawn) because of the enormous vocal passion that pours out of Diego’s small frame, he started his solo career at age 19, gaining popularity in Spain’s flamenco community with a steady stream of Spanish hit albums while singing in local clubs. He recorded his first album Undebel in 1997, and followed up with Entre Vareta y Canasta a year later. 2000 saw the release of the Latin GRAMMY Award-nominated album Corren Tiempos de Alegria, which featured some of the musicians who appeared in the film Calle 54, including Cuban jazz pianist Bebo Valdés and Bronx-born Puerto Rican trumpeter/percussionist Jerry Gonzalez, In 2003 he recorded Lágrimas Negras with Bebo Valdés, which brought el Cigala international acclaim for its easy fusion of Cuban rhythms and flamenco vocals. The album was named the Album of the Year by the New York Times’s Ben Ratliff in 2003, saw five GRAMMY nominations including winning the Latin GRAMMY Award for Best Traditional Tropical Album, the GRAMMY for Best Music Video, five Amigo Awards, three Musica Awards, and the Ondas Award for Best Flamenco Work. Two years later, his next album, Picasso en Mis Ojos, won the 2006 Latin GRAMMY for Best Flamenco Album. 2009’s album of re-envisioned boleros, ballads and tangos, Dos Lágrimas, was recorded with all-star musicians in Spain and Cuba and featured three charting singles: “Dos Gardenias”’ “Maria de la O” and “Historia de un Amor”. El Cigala then traveled to Argentina to record the Argentinian tango album Cigala & Tango, which went gold after being initially released only in Spain, Argentina, and Columbia, eventually earning the 2010 Latin GRAMMY for Best Tango Album. Despite an active touring schedule, his next album, Romance de La Luna Tucumana, a boundary-pushing blend of classic Adalusian folk song, tango and rock, which featured Diego Garcia on guitar, brought home another Latin GRAMMY for Best Tango Album. El Cigala’s latest and first salsa album, Indestrucitible, was recorded in Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, New York and Miami with a host of Cuban and salsa music legends. Released in October 2016, it is a tribute to El Cigala’s late wife Amparo, and to his mentor, the late, great Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés. ALEX CONDE, son of legendary Copla singer, Alejandro Conde, Alex Conde is a vibrant and visionary jazz and flamenco pianist and composer who was born into a family of musicians in Spain, started playing classical piano at age four and went onto study at the Conservatorio Jose Iturbi de Valencia, jazz piano at el Liceu de Barcelona, and at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Combining his background of classical, jazz, Spanish religious folklore and flamenco musical traditions, he released his first album Jazz and Claps in in 2009, followed up by Barrio Del Carmen in 2013. Conde has composed for flamenco companies such as AFSB and Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco. His 2015 album, Descarga for Monk, an irresistible combination of Monk’s compositions with the added spice of flamenco flavor, has been received with great accolades. Alex Conde will be releasing his new CD "Origins" in May 2018 on the new label Uprising Music, a subsidiary of Ropeadope Records. Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.

Freaknik - The Creek and The Cave
April 14, 2018 - Queens

Starting in 1982, the city of Atlanta threw an annual party called "Freaknik" which essentially became the largest black spring break party in the country. The party became so big and wild that the city shut it down for good in 1996, but we're all in luck, because comedians Andy Sandford, Noah Gardenswartz and Steve Forrest are bringing Freaknik back, and they're bringing it to Long Island City! "Comedy Freaknik" will be a lot like the original Freaknik, except it's going to happen once a month, and it will be a comedy show hosted by three white guys. That's basically the ONLY difference.

An Evening of Mary Bridget Davies - The Madison Theatre
April 14, 2018 - Rockville Centre

The show is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences — trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest legends. Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin's favorites, including "Piece of My Heart," "Cry Baby," and "Me and Bobby McGee," among many others. A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN features Mary Bridget Davies in the starring role. Upon gaining local acclaim for her work in various rock bands, Cleveland native Davies was asked to sit in with Big Brother & The Holding Company (Joplin's original band, with whom she would later tour), as well as legendary blues guitarist Robert Lockwood Jr. Davies, and received a Tony nomination for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical" when A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN debuted on Broadway in 2013.

Rita Coolidge - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
April 14, 2018 - Bay Shore

Rita's credentials are the stuff of legend. After earning a degree in art at Florida State University, the Tennessee native decided to give music a shot before settling into a career as an art teacher. She moved to Memphis and was soon singing jingles, demos and background vocals for a number of area bands. Among them was a husband and wife duo, Delaney & Bonnie. When the pair signed their record deal, Rita suddenly found herself on big-time pop music's leading edge. Her reputation as an A-list backup singer spread quickly. Joe Cocker enlisted her in that role and as a featured soloist on his Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour. (Rita performed a song she'd co-written, ?Superstar,? which would later be a huge hit for The Carpenters.) Work with other rock royalty followed, including tours and recordings with Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Leon Russell and Stephen Stills. In 1971, A&M Record's moguls Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss signed her to the label, and one of the most enduring solo careers in all of the music was underway

Join Dr. Elizabeth Yuko for an introduction to and discussion of bioethics through clips and case studies. Who better to learn about autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice from than Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia?

MaJid - National Sawdust
April 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

The culmination of an eight year journey, Ma*JiD will perform selections from the album joined by special guests Squala Orphan (Brooklyn MC/Guru's Jazzmatazz Alum), Sfumato Symphony Orchestra, and Cyrus Aaron (acclaimed Poet/ Activist/TV Personality). Ma*JiD's music is defined by its angelic string sounds, aboriginal electric bass grooves, lush harmonic textures layered with a combination of acoustic/electric sounds and its heavy hip-hop influenced drums. The album itself is music that chronicles the development of jazz music from a New Orleans juke joint, a highly technical musical view of a modern city, a gospel bound violin with orchestra in a great hall and a socially conscience street anthem with the trap music swag to match. The evening will leave listeners looking inward, outward and to the dance floor.

The show is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences — trailblazers like Aretha FranklinEtta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest legends. Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin’s favorites, including “Piece of My Heart,” “Cry Baby,” and “Me and Bobby McGee,” among many others.

A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN features Mary Bridget Davies in the starring role. Upon gaining local acclaim for her work in various rock bands, Cleveland native Davies was asked to sit in with Big Brother & The Holding Company (Joplin’s original band, with whom she would later tour), as well as legendary blues guitarist Robert Lockwood Jr. Davies, and received a Tony nomination for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical” when A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN debuted on Broadway in 2013.

Christopher Paul Stelling - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
April 14, 2018 - New York

There is a fearless quality to the music of Christopher Paul Stelling. A voice that sounds both old and young, an effortless yet intricate finger-picking guitar style and lyrics that are both dramatic, and intensely confessional. It's a sound that channels the restless spirit of a young man who left home to travel the country, haunting and impassioned songs formed by endless nights alone on stage with a guitar, playing to packed houses, other times to nearly empty rooms. Stelling estimates that he's played over four hundred shows in just the past three years. It places him within a longstanding tradition that serves to nurture ones character and art.

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.

The Susan Tobocman Trio - Fine & Rare
April 14, 2018 - New York

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.

Through April 14, 2018 - New York

In 1948, the World Health Organization defined health as a "state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". The past two decades have seen a shift in the medical field towards such an integrative practice – treating the whole person, rather than simply their disease. Mental health professionals are starting to catch up. How can we help our clients ameliorate symptoms of mental illness, but also live in a state of optimal well-being? The field of positive psychology offers solutions. Over the course of two days, participants will embark on a journey through the pathways of human flourishing, and will be introduced to evidence-based positive psychology interventions to supplement clinical practice.

A$AP Ferg, Denzel Curry, IDK - Terminal 5
April 14, 2018 - New York

A$AP Ferg may hail from a block in Harlem notoriously known as "Hungry Ham (Hamilton Heights)," but that never completely defined him. Whether it be launching clothing and jewelry lines or attending art school, he constantly bobbed and weaved past expectations. As a rapper, unpredictability remains his only calling card. The next member of the A$AP Mob collective to have a solo project, he can slip from gruff, gritty rhymes to soaring singing, and he does so seamlessly. On his A$AP Worldwide released mixtape, Trap Lord, he's got his own musical domain on lock. "Ferg's debut [mixtape] will not sound like anything that's out in the music industry right now," assures A$AP Worldwide co-owner, A$AP Yams. Hip-hop surrounded Ferg from childhood. His father Darold Ferguson owned a Harlem boutique and printed shirts and logos for record labels including Bad Boy Records and luminaries such as Teddy Riley, Heavy D, Bell Biv DeVoe, and more. Even though he immersed himself in music, the younger Ferg pursued fashion at first. Launching Devoni Clothing in 2005, he designed and distributed high-end belts worn by the likes of Chris Brown, Swizz Beatz, and Diggy Simmons. Eventually, his hustle, creativity, and business acumen extended to music.

Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation, with Iwan Baan and William Menking - Parrish Art Museum
April 14, 2018 - Water Mill

Iwan Baan, one of the most sought-after architectural photographers today, will talk with William Menking, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Architect's Newspaper about how a photographer's aesthetic choices and use of technology can imbue seemingly static buildings with feeling and meaning. Baan, whose work is in the current exhibition, Image Building, is known for images that narrate the life and interactions that occur within architecture. With his combined passion for documentary and space, Baan's photographs reveal our innate ability to re-appropriate our available objects and materials, in order to find a place we can call our own. Examples of this can be seen in his work on informal communities where vernacular architecture and placemaking serve as examples of human ingenuity, such as his images of the Torre David in Caracas–a series that won Baan the Golden Lion for Best Installation at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. With no formal training in architecture, his perspective mirrors the questions and perspectives of the everyday individuals who give meaning and context to the architecture and spaces that surround us, and this artistic approach has given matters of architecture an approachable and accessible voice.

Acoustic Brunch: Monica Rizzio - Daryl's House Club
April 14, 2018 - Pawling

No stranger to the east coast music scene, Texas-bred and Cape Cod washashore, Monica Rizzio is emerging as one of the finest singer songwriters that call New England home. For over 10 years she played fiddle and sang with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic pop band, who toured up and down the east coast. In 2012, Monica left the band to rejuvenate her passion for music and began writing to help cope with the loss of the band and love. At FreshGrass, the following year, while perusing the vendors Rizzio found a 1956 Martin 0-18 guitar that would change her life and her song. She calls it the "moment I found Jesus again." Drawing on her East Texas roots, Monica and her Martin, brought back the the little girl who loved to barrel race on her horse Bo, and she found her outlaw country sound deep within the folk world. Her debut album, aptly named, Washashore Cowgirl, is completely autobiographical, often times delivered in a fictional approach, sometimes with humor, and sometimes so strikingly honest you can feel the pain in her voice.

WQXR Family Concert: Oran Etkin’s “Timbalooloo” - The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space
April 14, 2018 - Greenwich Village

WQXR will present the first installment of its interactive family concert series in The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space – Timbalooloo with internationally renowned clarinetist, composer, and children's music class founder Oran Etkin. Timbalooloo fundamentally reimagines the way music is taught and how music is conceived by children during their formative years. Joined by Oran's friends Clara Net (his Clarinet), the Piano, and the Violin, he'll take kids on an interactive musical journey around the world. During the concert, kids will share the excitement that Bach felt as he discovered the newly invented pianoforte in the court of King Frederick the Great of Prussia; play a musical game of hide and seek with Mozart; and even explore some of the music that influenced or was influenced by classical composers —from Eastern European Roma music to great Jazz composers such as Duke Ellington. After the performance, join us for an after-party at Timbalooloo’s new SoHo space at 131 Varick Street.

In Between: Poem and Flash Fiction with Barbara Henning - Poets House
April 14, 2018 - New York

Attention to style and structure is very important to the writer of tiny fictions, just as it is to poets. That's why flash fiction and prose poetry are often described as borderline genres (between poetry and prose). In this class, you will write five poetic stories or narrative prose poems. Instead of working with the line, we will be working with the sentence and the paragraph. There will be assignments and examples from published writing and some theory. Assignments may include: auto-flash fiction, camera eye, long sentence, day dream story, sestina story, retelling and telling, story as list, etc. We will read tiny stories from writers such as: Lydia Davis, Fielding Dawson, Marcel Proust, Roberto Bolano, Gisèle Prassinos, Richard Brautigan, Laura Riding, Robert Walser, Julio Cortazar, Dale Herd, Clarice Lispector, and Jamaica Kincaid. We will enter into the writing through technique, constraints and forms typically used for writing poetry. In this way, perhaps the unexpected will occur: a story you didn't know you were going to write. Most of the class will be spent as a workshop responding to your writing. Barbara Henning is a poet and a fiction writer. She has published three novels and numerous books of poetry, including her most recent, A Day Like Today (Negative Capability Press 2015). A novel, Just Like That, is forthcoming from Spuyten Duyvil. Barbara has taught workshops for Poets House, The Poetry Project, The Poetry Center (Tucson), and many other organizations. She has been on the faculty at Naropa University and is currently teaching at Long Island University in Brooklyn, where she is Professor Emerita.

In his Duplex debut, actor/writer Luke Winter wants to bequeath upon you some life lessons from his ever-so-short time as an adult.

Life is messy, complicated, and, sometimes, really f#%@ing awful. And guess what? That's okay. Luke Winter is an actor and writer living in New York City (Greenpoint, to be exact). He graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Theatre, studying at the New Studio on Broadway and Stonestreet Studios. His fear of sucking delayed his musical theatre training until the latter half of high school, when he realized that everyone starts somewhere. The rest is history. $10 Ticket in Advance & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre* $15 Ticket at the Door (plus service fee) & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre* No One Under 21 Allowed Doors open 30 minutes before show time.

It is also a reflection back to the birth and to-date progress of the Contemporary Indian vocabulary of movement through the lens of my personal experience as a second-generation Indian American. The goal is to plant seeds of the past: acknowledging what came before in order to see clearly about the potential of the future," says Brinda Guha. Featuring 18 diverse NYC dance artists and interdisciplinary visual/audio arts (photography by Francisco Guijarro, live painting by Zac Crawford, audio by TEDxCreativeCoast speaker Kolby Harrell, poet Suheir Hammad, and original writing by Brinda Guha), this new work reveals individual journeys toward ultimate goals, which inevitably change as our lives progress.

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.

Through April 15, 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.

In 2017, Chroma partnered with 8 Ball Community and Red Bull and hosted The Working Woman of Color Conference, a live podcast event employing self-actualization as an organizing principle to think, construct and shape powerful narratives of mobility for women of color.

The conference and corresponding Podcast is produced by Chroma, who aims to create an accessible blueprint in response to the socio and economic mobility of women of color. This year, Chroma is excited to host a two-day conference event titled Continuity to recognize the ways in which women of color continuously attempt to sustain their livelihoods, careers, and overall well-being given the many industries and spaces they occupy. By inviting a cadre of makers, thinkers, artists, scholars, and innovators, the participants will explore self-preservation for women of color as a narrative for liberation. This will be done through a series of art happenings, lectures, and panels over the course of a weekend. Continuity aims to empower the community with methods of self-preservation as a tool for empowerment and sustenance.

The Feelies - Rough Trade NYC
Through April 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

(Photo credit – Rob Bennett for The New York Times; Photo illustration by The New York Times) Formed in Haledon NJ in 1976, The Feelies released 4 albums- including their critically acclaimed and influential debut Crazy Rhythms, which was voted 49 in the top 100 albums of the 1980s by Rolling Stone magazine and chosen by Spin Magazine as 49 of the best alternative records of all time. Supporting the release of their first four albums the band appeared on the The Late Show With David Letterman and in concerts with The Patti Smith Group, REM, and Bob Dylan as well as touring with Lou Reed. The twin-guitar attack of songwriters and founders Glenn Mercer and Bill Million is the infectious sound of the group. Paired with driving drums and percussion, it has left an indelible mark on the landscape of rock and roll. In 2008, the Feelies re-united to open for long time admirers Sonic Youth at Battery Park and then resurrected their tradition of playing low key gigs at strategic intervals throughout the year rather than doing lengthy tours. In 2009 Bar/None re-issued Crazy Rhythms and The Good Earth, this being the first band-sanctioned CD release of the former. In 2011, they released a new studio album Here Before. In March 2016, Bar/None Records re-released the third and fourth albums, Only Life and Time for a Witness. As a special Record Store Day release Bar None/Coyote Records will co-release the Feelies Uncovered. This will be a limited edition 12 " EP featuring studio recordings of four cover songs, none commercially available before. In addition, the Feelies recently wrapped up work on a brand new studio album, expected to be released later this year. They continue to regularly perform live. Their music has been featured in the films Married to the Mob, Something Wild, Prelude to a Kiss, The Truth About Charlie, The Squid & the Whale and Ricki and the Flash.

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.

With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story.

She, a Choreoplay - Judson Memorial Church
Through April 15, 2018 - Manhattan

Choreographer, playwright, and dancer Jinah Parker's moving work of dance-theater—"a Choreoplay"—opens up all-too-necessary conversations about sexual trauma, systemic racism, women's healing and ownership of their bodies, and the undoing of rape culture. The show, in development for two years, arrives Off-Broadway just as these crucial conversations about sexual violence have erupted in the American consciousness, as allegations against powerful men have given fire to women and driven the #MeToo movement and the subsequent Time's Up Defense Fund, exposing the extent of the systems that heretofore have silenced and shamed survivors, and providing pathways to justice and accountability. Having played to sold-out audiences at HERE Arts Center in Spring 2017, SHE continues its journey—with a newly revamped script, new cast members, and new direction from Tamilla Woodard—in this moment of reckoning, in telling the stories of survivors and giving voice and body to pain as a step toward liberation, healing, and empowerment.

Michel Legrand Trio ft Ron Carter - Blue Note Jazz Club
Through April 15, 2018 - New York

Michel Legrand describes his status as an atypical, compulsive musician who cannot be pigeonholed; or rather, his many statuses as a composer, conductor, pianist, singer, writer and producer. Tearing down the barriers between jazz, classical music and easy listening, he is at home in any musical situation. Born in 1932, Michel Legrand came from a family with a musical tradition represented by his father, Raymond Legrand and his uncle Jacques Hélian. When he was ten, he entered the Paris Conservatory, which proved to be an unexpected revelation. "Until then, my childhood had been flat and unhappy," he relates. " My life revolved around an old piano and I was very bored. I was very lonely. Suddenly, when I joined Lucette Descaves' music theory class, I discovered a world that belonged to me, people who spoke my language. From then on, I felt that life had something exciting and motivating to offer" After studying under the iron rule of Nadia Boulanger, Henri Challan and Noël Gallon for several years, Legrand left the Conservatory with top honors in harmony, piano, fugue and counterpoint. He immediately gravitated to the world of song, working as an accompanist musical director to Maurice Chevalier. He traveled with the famous French singer on his international tours. This gave him the opportunity to visit the United States for the first time. His instrumental LP, I Love Paris, did extremely well in that country, topping the US album charts in 1954. His first hit record also had great symbolic significance, revealing his international potential: the talented 22 year old did not look back and continued to go from strength to strength in France and abroad.

Biophobia - Chashama
Through April 15, 2018 - New York

Anonda Bell's exhibition Biophobia features work inspired by when the artist first immigrated to the United States from Australia. "I found myself engaged in numerous conversations about all the deadly creatures that exist in my homeland," Bell explains. "When I would attempt to explain to New Yorkers that Australians are overall more comfortable living with an assortment of creepy crawlies, I would be confronted by incredulous looks of dismay. It occurred to me that within a city like this one, there are very few moments when people are confronted by the natural environment." There will be two works from the series shown – Arachnophobia (fear of spiders) and Entomophobia (fear of insects). Each of the works attempts to convey a sense of fear about the specific creatures, even to those who do not naturally feel fear or repulsion. "Biophobia" is defined as a sense of dis-ease in nature, and a derisive regard for climates and environments which are not man made or at least modified significantly by people. It is thought to be an acquired urge to affiliate with technology, human artifacts, to the exclusion of experiencing the natural world outside a constructed environment. This condition is a seemingly inevitable consequence of growing up in an urban environment where our interactions with nature may be limited to incidental encounters, strictly mediated and moderated by the perspective of urban planners, or those who generate media content (and sometimes benefit from propagating a fear of nature).

Join the Seaport Museum's historian, and curator of Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 for special programs commemorating the brief life and journey of the RMS Titanic. First Join us during a special curators talk for an in-depth look at the exhibition: Millions, and New York's special relationship with ocean liners. Then on Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15, join the Seaport Museum for a special walking tour to commemorate the 106th anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic, and the legacy of Titanic's brief life. From Schermerhorn Row to the Brooklyn Bridge, the Seaport District is full of surprising connections to many of Titanic's passengers. Come and discover these forgotten ties between the ill-fated liner and South Street. Tickets are $20 for members or $25 for non-members and can be purchased at seaportmuseum.org/seaportwalkingtours/ or in person at the main Museum building at 12 Fulton Street, NYC. About the Exhibition Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 is one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First Class and Third Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century. Ships like Titanic, Olympic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, and Imperator dominated transatlantic travel. On each voyage, they transported thousands of people, First-Class passengers sailed across the Atlantic in the lap of luxury while Third-Class passengers made the voyage in the stuffy lower decks.  From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart. This exhibition features both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition highlights a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87). Ambrose, a floating lighthouse, stood watch at the front door to New York Harbor during the greatest period of immigration in US history. Her official duty was to mark the entrance to the Ambrose Channel, a deep channel dredged between 1900 and 1907 to allow larger ocean liners, the largest of which had doubled in size in those same years, safe access into the harbor. But Ambrosehad another vital role; her light was the first thing an immigrant would see as they entered New York Harbor, long before the buildings and piers on the waterfront, long before the Manhattan skyline, and long before the lighted torch of the Statue of Liberty. Evoking the spirit of First-Class grandeur, a piece of wood paneling that once adorned the interior of the Smoking Room of the RMS Mauretania will be recreated by master woodcarver Deborah Mills throughout the run of the show. This work-in-progress will be on view in the exhibition space during regular hours Thursday through Sunday. Each Wednesday visitors can visit the Museum's Maritime Craft Center at 209 Water Street and watch as the artist brings the piece closer to the original. Throughout the exhibition, there will be screenings of films which feature ocean liners and immigrants in their critical roles in New York Harbor life at a time when this city was the busiest port in the world.  The exhibition familiarizes viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history. The exhibition is curated by William Roka, Historian, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections and Curatorial Assistant, at the Seaport Museum. Exhibition design and art direction by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum's historic letterpress shop. Lectures and all-ages public programs will take place throughout the length of the exhibition. The exhibition is included with Museum admission: South Street Seaport Museum members: FREE, $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $6 for children ages 2 - 17. Tickets can be purchased online at www.southstreetseaportmuseum.org/ or in person at 12 Fulton St. This exhibition is made possible by generous support from Theodore W. Scull and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. 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."

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).

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.

Crimes of the Heart at Adelphi University from April 10-15 - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Through April 15, 2018 - Garden City

Warm-hearted, funny-sad, and wonderfully imaginative, Crimes of the Heart is a play teeming with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. Crimes of the Heart will run from April 10 – 15 in the Black Box Theatre in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. This production features the students of the Department of Theatre and is directed by Brian Rose. The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at 30 and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by priggish cousin, Chick, eager young lawyer Barnette, who is struggling not to fall in love with Babe, and by Doc, the attractive former lover of Meg, or may or may not want to stoke old fires.. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended. Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Crimes of the Heart is an astonishing first play, initially presented by the Actors Theatre of Louisville, then Off-Broadway, and then on Broadway, where it established playwright Beth Henley as a major voice in our theatre. The Adelphi PAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. Tickets are currently on sale for $20 with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through April 16, 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.

Paintings by Philippe Halaburda - Chashama
Through April 16, 2018 - New York

Philippe Halaburda is interested in the randomness of cities like NYC and their relationship to human experience. Based on emotions, feelings or memories from his direct experiences, his work delves into the complex undercurrents of intimate and collective relationships to the City. Halaburda's abstract paintings engage with the urban environment and call upon emotional framework as a construct to bring the viewer inside his or her own subconscious. The result is always an expression of mental processes related to that exact instant, by creating a unique artistic topography: Geographic Abstraction.

Through April 16, 2018 - Water Mill

Life Drawing with Linda Capello. Every Mondays from March 19 - April 16, 2018. Develop your drawing skills in five open studio sessions by drawing male and female models through gesture sketches and longer duration observation, under the guidance of teaching artist Linda Capello. All skill levels welcome. For adults (age 15+). Participants are asked to provide the following dry media supplies: 18x24 newsprint, soft vine charcoal, conte, woodless graphite pencil (#6 or higher), kneaded eraser, and a drawing board. Linda Capello is a master of figure drawing. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked in the NYC fashion industry for over 20 years. She states, "All I have ever wanted to do was draw, and all I have ever wanted to draw were people. I am a classically trained anatomist, but instead of the rigid, mechanical representation of muscle, bone and flesh, I look for the subtlety of the line; the strength and sensuality of the thick, thin and lost line. The curve of the neck and arch of the spine speak volumes." a Capello.

Judy Collins - The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel
Through April 17, 2018 - New York

The Ocean After Nature - exhibition - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall - The Auditorium
Through April 17, 2018 - New York

The Ocean After Nature considers the ocean as reflecting the ecological, cultural, political, and economic realities of a globalized world. Featuring work by 20 artists and collectives in a variety of media — including photography, video, sculpture, and design — the exhibition explores new ways of representing the seascape as a means to identify and critique land-sea divides, the circulation of people and goods, and the vulnerabilities of ecosystems. In the past 15 years, global technological and economic shifts have triggered new concerns and understandings of the ocean. Invoking personal themes of identity and migration, alongside more universal concerns related to tourism, trade, and the exploitation of natural resources, the internationally established and emerging artists in The Ocean After Nature respond to the intertwined factors that define this new understanding of the ocean. The show proposes that seascapes do not only reflect power but can be instruments of power themselves. Featured artists include Ursula Biemann, CAMP, Yonatan Cohen & Rafi Segal, Mati Diop, Drexciya, Peter Fend, Manuel Gnam, Renée Green, Peter Hutton, Hyung S. Kim, An-My Lê, Manny Montelibano, The Otolith Group, Maria D. Rapicavoli, Carissa Rodriguez, Allan Sekula & Nöel Burch, Supersudaca, and UNITED BROTHERS.

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.

The Art of Mike Mignola: Hellboy and Other Curious Objects - Society of Illustrators
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

In this specialized exhibit, Mignola reveals some of his best pieces, providing viewers a look into his dark, spectral perspective. 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.

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

Viktor Popovi?: Split Archives - C24 Gallery
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

C24 Gallery is pleased to present Split Archives, a solo exhibition by artist Viktor Popovi? marking his inaugural exhibition with the gallery, and in the United States. Split Archives brings together over thirty works created in the last three years, which explore the Modernist heritage of former Yugoslavia in the 1960s. Using strategies of appropriation, and the application of archival research methods, Popovi? investigates history and collective social memory through his installations. Split Archives will be on view from March 6 through April 21, 2018 at 560 West 24th Street, with an opening reception on Tuesday, March 6 from 6 – 8 pm. The postwar architecture of former Yugoslavia was a direct response to the demands and influences of it's time. Forward thinking in its approach, modern architectural design not only solved the issue of expansion, but preserved the identity of the area - it provided a way forward. In Split Archives, Popovi? focuses on the city archives of his hometown in Split, Croatia, where the developmental projects became a paradigmatic example of the exceptional urban planning and architectural practices during this time. Through the utilization of found objects and raw industrial materials such as fluorescent light tubes and color correction filters, Popovi?'s hybrid light installations probe the relationship between artwork and object, audience, history, and environment. The artist's interventions on enlarged archival photographs of architectural models (Untitled Archive ST3), and the interiors of the fully realized Military Hospital (Untitled Archive ST3: Military Hospital), re-contextualize the imagery and form a connection between new materials, and the original processes and states of the depicted architecture. The finished artwork questions the position of personal and social memory, in relation to the tradition of socialist, modernist architecture.

The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975 - New York Historical Society

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.

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.

Eduardo Navarro into Our Cells - The Drawing Center
Through April 22, 2018 - Soho

The Drawing Center will commission a new project by Argentinian artist Eduardo Navarro for The Lab. For this project, Navarro will produce a series of edible drawings, entitled Into our cells, which will be drawn with edible ink on edible paper with frames made of bread and sugar glass. In a closing feast, the audience will participate in Navarro's project by consuming the drawings. This project stems from Navarro's interest in quantum physics, specifically the "holographic principle," which describes how matter is scrambled and not destroyed in a black hole. Into our cells will explore how the consumption of a series of drawings can serve as a new mode of contemplation and create a situation in which our understanding of aesthetics bypasses the primacy of the eye and the visual. Through this commission, Navarro is interested in addressing the following questions: What would happen if one ate a drawing? Could our metabolism truly destroy this image? Would this drawing transform into fat, slowly become energy over time, and translate into action back in the world? Or, would the image become a ghost that inhabits the body like a house?

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).

This ember state - Asia Society and Museum
Through April 22, 2018 - New York

his ember state is a voice and sound performance work created by Samita Sinha in collaboration with Dean Moss and Cenk Ergün. This Asia Society commission was created in residency at Asia Society Museum and is presented in an intimate gallery setting with a maximum capacity of 25 people per performance. This performance contains nudity and is not suitable for children. According to artist Samita Sinha: This ember state takes Indian classical music apart through the pussy – as a source of sound and silence, and knowledge of life and death – to create an abstract sonic, enfleshed language. Using the myth of the self-immolating Hindu goddess Sati and the idea of dark matter, the work sculpts and dissolves forms at the physical and psychic border between inside and outside, creating openings with and for the audience.

Through April 22, 2018 - Flushing

Little does Benedick know that he may have, at last, met his match in Hero’s erce-witted cousin, Beatrice. And little does the town of Messina know that it is about to be rocked by a scandal that will take a miracle to put right. Titan Co-founders and real-life husband and wife team, Lenny Banovez and Laura Frye, take on Shakespeare’s spirited, sparring duo in Much Ado About Nothing.

Car Parts: Laurie Peek - Union Arts Center
Through April 23, 2018 - Sparkill

"'Car Parts' is a series I started photographing in the fall of 2012. Attracted to the light and abstract pattern in a reflection on a parked car door, I began noticing these 'paintings' on cars everywhere and I set out to collect them. For me these dream-like images combine elements of gestural energy from Abstract Expressionism with the bright colors of Pop Art in a tribute to the glamour that American society has long associated with the automobile. They are akin to what John Chamberlain was doing with his metal sculptures of crushed cars. Coincidently, Chamberlain lived and worked for twenty years in my hometown of Sarasota, Florida, and I think we both responded similarly to the intense Florida sunshine and salt-air rusted metal.

Donald Woodman - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Agora Gallery is pleased to present Horizons: Photographs by Donald Woodman, a focused exhibition featuring recent works by internationally recognized artist Donald Woodman. With a career spanning forty-five years, Woodman is an established large format photographer and has collaborated with and assisted artists such as architectural photographer Ezra Stoller, American photographer Minor White, and abstract painter Agnes Martin. Moving adeptly between commercial and fine arts photography, Woodman's unique combination of traditional and digital methods lends his work technical proficiency, formal refinement, and conceptual weight. His diverse subject matter, ranging from portraits and landscapes to probing examinations of masculinity and personal identity, remains consistently intimate, characterized by a subversive perspective and eccentric wit. Though Woodman has been an engrained figure in the international art world for decades, the artist has chosen to remain at the margins, living and working primarily in the American Southwest. Regarding this tendency, Woodman says, "For most of my career, New Mexico has provided me with a respite from some of the unbearable excesses of civilization. I have chosen to stay out of the limelight in order to preserve the freedom to pursue my personal vision." Aptly, Horizons is an exhibition of large-scale photographic prints capturing the vastness of the American Southwestern landscape. Focusing on the dramatic play of light on the horizon, Woodman's recent works posit the desert as a sanctuary. His reverence for the landscape is evidenced in these rich, lush photographs that highlight the unique and fragile ecology and question notions of limitless natural resources and boundless frontiers.

Olivia Kapoor - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

The paintings of American Inter-Dimensional Visionary artist Olivia Kapoor offer ethereal meditations on the nature of time and emotion interpreted through color, geometry, and texture. Working predominantly in acrylic, oil, and pastel, the artist constructs highly saturated canvases that defy traditional, realist expressions of color. Her overall oeuvre blends contemporary painting techniques with the style of Surrealist and Impressionist masters such as Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet. Kapoor describes her technique as "relaxed and meditative." She explains: "My state of mind and how I feel emotionally contribute greatly to the work itself, how it comes together, and how long it takes.... The great thing about the end result is that it is able to speak for itself, tell a story, communicate something to the viewer." The artist's compelling juxtapositions of pattern and texture are at once immersive and dynamic, thus inviting the viewer into the continuously evolving, dream-like world Kapoor cultivates through paint.

Stefano Sanna - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Miguel A. Chavez | Ali Cockburn | Ana Dávila | Barbara Demsar | Marianne Durach | Manuel Jiménez Palma | Olivia Kapoor | Sergey Klychkov | Alexander Ossipov (TOTUR) | Matus Prochaczka (WEKOWORKS) | Stefano Sanna | Gordana Tomic | Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer | Donald Woodman

Ana Dávila - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Ana Dávila's lyrical paintings are as laden with personal expression and artistic freedom as they are striking in visual content. Working in mixed media on canvas, Dávila layers abstract, organic brushstrokes and a wide variation of materials in a seemingly endless manner that imbues each work with its own individuality and personality; throughout Dávila's practice, no two works are alike. In works such as Orgasm (2017), spongy droplets of bright yellow, green, and cobalt blue in the background of the composition are sharply interrupted by gritty, textured swaths of vivid crimson that dominates the foreground and upper right quadrant of the painting. Dávila's emphasis on contrasting tones and textures are at once highly emotive and reflective of the ever- changing nature of the human experience. In works such as Yeesss!!! (2017), background layers of bright red are sharply interrupted by energetic droplets, swaths, stamps, and drips of sky blue, cream, and black. Each indiscriminate splash of paint appears to engage in frenzied conversations with one another, thus commanding a life of its own.

Sergey Klychkov - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Sergey Klychkov's paintings are both whimsical and profound, studious and spontaneous. Focusing mainly on portraiture, Klychkov is especially skilled at delineating the expressive details of the human face. While preferencing fine art over illustration, his paintings nevertheless suggest narratives. This comes most to light when his work portrays cartoonishly mismatched juxtapositions of phenomena in fantastical landscapes, implying roots in a highly-developed fictional history. In The Moons (2015), Klychkov's use of oil paints lends his subject a folkloric aspect. Portraying a lunar fantasia, two female nudes are seated atop the roofs of houses, while two more fly in air. A fifth female figure rides on a purple horse through in the center of the scene. The warped spatial distortion of the figures' limbs, as well as the houses, give the image a dionysian feel, while Klychkov's color palette blankets this energy in an ashen-hued tranquility. While verging on the illustrative, the viewer can only imagine the backstory behind such a work. Taken in by the almost littoral calm of the painting, the viewer might feel caught up in the same insouciance with which the two women loll on a nightime roof.

Manuel Jiménez Palma - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Spanish artist Manuel Jiménez Palma uses pastels to capture quotidian scenes, imbuing the ordinary with uninhibited emotional affect. He utilizes a high-keyed, exaggerated palette and emphasizes mark making over realism, giving his works a sense of spontaneity. Drawing directly onto paper without sketching, Palma manipulates the shapes and colors in his compositions to create entirely subjective scenes that challenge perception. In works such as Beers in Andalusia., Palma images the aftermath of a small gathering, the intense red, ochre, violet, and aqua palette mirroring the exuberance of the artist. Meanwhile, Sleeping in the Yard., captures the attitude of a languid, napping cat, its surrounds transformed into a highly patterned and richly decorative abstraction. In Roofs of Seville., Palma renders the Spanish town's skyline in pared down shapes of bold, unmodulated color, his confident mark making and vibrant palette indicating the energy of the bustling town. In each work, Palma utilizes the emotionality of brilliant color to suffuse conventional scenes with radical subjectivity.

Barbara Demsar - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

In her playful abstract landscapes, Barbara Demsar paints the natural world with a vivid, childlike optimism. Harmonious, bright, and airy, her lemon yellow and eggshell compositions are littered with delicate doodles, dots of pigment, and whimsical, collaged shapes. These distinctive narratives reflect the artist's perception of the real world; her subjective philosophies are expressed via a unique and joyful pictorial language. Demsar's melodious landscapes share a roster of recurring symbols. In addition to thin loops and sinuous lines, tiny infinity symbols, three point crowns, and hollow half rings appear throughout her works, lending a sense of connectedness to each buoyant composition. Furthermore, Landscape and Good Morning Sun each feature markers of a horizon line and a sun, as well as various other duplicated visual signifiers that remain mysterious. There Somewhere is a hazier composition featuring small clusters of evocative shapes atop a subtly printed background. Finally, Here and Now utilizes an all over composition, and bright red flecks and dabs of paint punctuate the golden, textured background.

Gordana Tomic - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Gordana Tomic's large-scale, abstract works are at once energetic, gestural, and profound in meaning. Working in predominantly acrylic, oil, and mixed media on canvas, Tomic utilizes a monochrome palette and an abstract expressionist gesture that transcribes raw, unsullied emotion into highly saturated and autographically textured compositions. Upon first glance, the majority of Tomic's oeuvre appears altogether abstract; however, in many of her works, the artist adroitly conceals figurative elements within an all-over composition brimming with color and texture. In works such as Poseidon Palette (2017), layered tones of navy, cobalt blue, and white writhe, splash, and churn at the upper register of the composition, cascading downwards in weighty, vertical drips of pigment. In the center of the canvas, Poseidon's trident is faintly visible, seamlessly blended with its abstract surroundings. Inspired by her Mediterranean background, Tomic explains: "I truly believe that all the seas are mine, like I named my latest exhibition. I have a purpose in this Universe to try many techniques, to touch every emotion and bring it to the canvas as it is, as it should be, as I read it and feel it." The artist currently resides in Belgrade, Serbia.

Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer's abstract canvases translate the natural landscape of her environment into cheerful explorations of both texture and color. Wöllmer often combines materials such as baked dry pigment, sand, and chalk with acrylic paint that imbues her paintings with autographic tactility. Works such as Dark and Light (2012) marry contrasting earth tones with grainy surfaces that evoke the tranquility of the artist's surroundings. Although abstract, the artist incorporates organic shapes and coarse lines within her works that recall elements of nature, such as tree branches and coastal grasslands. In works such as Hoffnung (2009), bright swaths of neon pink, violet, forest green and turquoise are indiscriminately placed against a deep charcoal background. Although Wöllmer places each color in independent regions of the canvas, each tone emanates a lyrical tension, as if the colors were engaging in a symphonic conversation. Wöllmer gleans much of her inspiration from music, as well as the process of her practice. She explains: "The process of painting empowers me, and I sense this feeling is also conveyed to viewers who seem moved by my work."

Matus Prochaczka (Wekoworks) - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Matus Prochaczka creates vivid renderings of futuristic automobiles in his works that blend digital art and traditional painting techniques. Using acrylic sprays, acrylic paint, and a palette knife, the artist embellishes his digitally printed inventions with painterly streaks and smears that evoke speed. Modeled on sophisticate computer software, the metallic cars have razor sharp edges and finely wrought details, but it is the artist's hand that injects the works with dynamism. Prochaczka's 14_Fernando Alonso at Virtual Track features a slick Formula One racer whirring through space. Though the artist designs the cars himself, he maintains the logos and sponsors seen on typical Formula One cars in order to evoke the mix of fanaticism and nostalgia associated with the sport. 33_Max Verstappen Night Race depicts a space age car that is almost completely abstracted, blurred nearly beyond recognition by threateningly fast speeds. Speed is further emphasized with strong strokes of acrylics and spray paint in the artist's most recent work, 29_Alonso INDY500, a digital print with the glimpse of a driver in a split second as he races along the Indianapolis 500 track.

Miguel A. Chavez - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Miguel A. Chavez's calming paintings invite his audience to consider the bucolic beauty within the everyday experience. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, the majority of Chavez's oeuvre encompasses highly detailed renderings of neighborhood facades executed with softly textured brushstrokes and compositional clarity. In works such as San Diego House, white stucco bungalows thatched with terra-cotta roof tiles and turquoise wooden shutters lay nestled within Californian eucalyptus and palm trees. In Colorado House History Museum, a large log cabin, its edges lined with a white wooden trim, peers bashfully towards the audience amidst a curtain of Coloradan tree leaves, standing upon a carpet of clay and stone. Born and raised in Córdoba, Argentina, Chavez has traveled to and lived within areas of Mexico and Canada; the artist's Latin heritage emanates throughout his illustrious oeuvre. Chavez's works have been displayed in a multitude of private collections and institutions in cities across the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, and throughout the continent of Europe. The artist currently resides in San Diego, California.

Alexander Ossipov (Totur) - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - New York

Alexander Ossipov (TOTUR) creates dense and detailed oil paintings combining myth and memory, earthly and divine. The artist distorts and stylizes his subjects, paring them down to geometric forms and blocks of color. Allegorical figures and animals are fractured and reassembled in shallow compositions, the pigmented planes and facets flattened onto the picture plane. In Ossipov's The Abduction of Europe, a nude female figure and a bull's head share a cosmic space. Without a horizon, the two float in an uncomfortable space, the floundering, twisted body reaching in vain for the animal. The Trinity. Guests features three figures that allude to the holy trinity. Dressed in abstracted and heavily patterned robes with Byzantine halos of light radiating from their heads, the three holy figures take on the appearance of stained glass. Finally, Ossipov's The Two Moons depicts an allegorical horned figure alongside an unidentified anthropomorphic shape, each patterned with stripes of earthy color. In the background, two turquoise and brick red orbs slice across a black ground, creating a sense of dueling opposition.

Heaven and Earth - Agora Gallery
Through April 25, 2018 - NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Heaven and Earth, featuring the works of Miguel A. Chavez, Ali Cockburn, Ana Dávila, Manuel Jiménez Palma, Barbara Demsar, Marianne Durach, Olivia Kapoor, Sergey Klychkov, Alexander Ossipov, Matus Prochaczka, Stefano Sanna, Gordana Tomic, Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer, and Donald Woodman. The fourteen artists in this exhibition imbue their respective practices into a collective exploration of the transcendent beauty within both the quotidian and the sublime. Buoyant dockside scenes and sanguine paintings of storefront facades are juxtaposed with whimsical dreamscapes, expressive, abstract compositions, and ethereal photographs of the world we currently inhabit. Traditional and contemporary conventions coalesce in this exhibition as each individual artist utilizes a variety of mediums, including but not limited to acrylic and oil on canvas, mixed media on paper, collage, digital prints, and photography. Heaven and Earth invites the viewer to examine an invigorating marriage of the everyday, the celestial, and the stasis between. Heaven and Earth will open on April 5th, 2018, with an opening reception on April 5th from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain open until April 25th. Exhibition Dates: April 5 - April 25, 2018 Reception: Thursday April 5, 2018 6-8 PM Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th Street, New York, NY Event URL: https://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_4_5_2018.aspx Featured Artists: Miguel A. Chavez | Ali Cockburn | Ana Dávila | Barbara Demsar | Marianne Durach | Manuel Jiménez Palma | Olivia Kapoor | Sergey Klychkov | Alexander Ossipov (TOTUR) | Matus Prochaczka (WEKOWORKS) | Stefano Sanna | Gordana Tomic | Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer | Donald Woodman About Agora Gallery Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Chelsea’s fine art district in New York.

Tribute to Old Masters - Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America
Through April 27, 2018 - New York

The Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America is pleased to announce a solo exhibition presenting artworks by the Australian-Polish artist Kamila Wojciechowicz. Opening reception: April 13, 2018, 6PM at 208 East 30th Street, New York, NY 10016; on view April 13-27, 2018. Open on: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am till 6:00 p.m. The show is titled “Tribute to Old Masters". “While creating my artworks, I was inspired greatly by old masters, such as Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, Diego Velázquez, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Petrus Christus and many other famous artists. I decided to combine certain elements from the past, such as intricate drawing and modern elements, such as saturated colours, into my art. Naturally, this doesn’t mean that I solely copied their works. Instead, I was trying to learn a certain set of skills from each great artist and implement them into my own works. My graphics primarily concern my passion for ballet, opera as well as depictions of heaven, hell and the garden of earthly delights. My works at present primarily concern the esoteric and mystic where I collaged mixed media subjects into shadow box mythological pieces that are almost small stage settings. They are meticulously detailed with strong drawing calling upon my knowledge of paintings by Bosch and Velazquez along with images reminiscent of medieval bestiaries.” Her art demonstrates passionate work in different media, such as graphics, collage and painting. All of them create an interesting sense of drama and complement each other. Kamila Wojciechowicz has been showing her works internationally e.g. Hong Kong, Italy, Germany, UK as well as in the U.S. Kamila Wojciechowicz hailed from Australia and Poland and received extensive artistic training in Europe, internationally-awarded, educated artistically in Warsaw and London, finalist of the Art Next Expo in Hong Kong 2017.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

G Contemporary is pleased to present the next show from New-York-based artist Jan Larsen.

FIT extends several streams of work begun in Larsen's 2015 debut with HG – works that reference mass and social media, their impacts on our social fabric, icons from popular culture, metaphorical colorfield works, text-based "word work," posed photographs, and conceptual sculptural installations that meditate on and respond to some of the history and present fragmented social state of America, and its place in our current global social context. The show will also debut a new series of abstract paintings that extend Larsen's work into the realm of abstract expressionism.

Crossroads of the World - Chashama
Through April 30, 2018 - New York

Laurence Jenkell fashions candy in many forms: paintings, installations and sculptures. Jenkell is a self-taught artist and could not enjoy candies when she was a child, so she decided to make this simple object of desire the main subject of her artwork, with a focus on the twist in a candy's wrapper, and share it with the public worldwide. The creation of her artworks has led Jenkell to use materials like Plexiglass, polyester, aluminum, bronze and marble, but also to express herself through fragmentation. More than a medium, Jenkell's interpretation of the candy has become a language: Her candy sculpture is a radical gesture stemming from the semantic contents of Pop Art and from New Realism.

In 2014, she was featured in the 30 under 30 list on Blouin ARTINFO and in 2015, she was invited by the Scottish Art Council to be a North American delegate for their Cultural delegation. In 2017, she was the Quebec juror for the RBC Canadian Painting prize. Desrosiers is completing a Masters in Art History at the University of Québec in Montréal under Dr. Monia Abdallah. She is currently pursuing research on the cultural and material implications of the use of sugar in contemporary art and aims to investigate the material and cultural issues in three artworks: Untitled (lover boys) (1991) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Oil and Sugar #2(2007) by Kader Attila and A subtlety or the Marvellous Sugar Baby (2014) by Kara Walker. Using cultural theory anchored in postcolonial studies, the project demonstrates how mindful attention to the role of material allows for a broader understanding of cultural tensions—of which it is both the witness and the result.

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.

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.

Time in kids and brian alfred: Selections from millions now living will never die! - Chashama
Through May 06, 2018 - New York

TThe Time In Children's Arts Initiative is proud to present selections from Brian Alfred's Millions Now Living Will Never Die!!! Originally presented in 2008 at Haunch of Venison, Berlin, and later at Haunch of Venison, New York, Millions Now Living will Never Die!!! is a stunning collection of 333 painted portraits: iconic figures and friends who informed and influenced Alfred's creative practice, from musicians and architects to politicians and writers. Brian, a long-time supporter of Time In's work — and a dad — will be joining Time In for a reception and community workshops for children. Stay tuned for details! About Time In Children's Arts Initiative The Time In Children's Arts Initiative has worked, since 2006, to transform the lives and learning of New York City's youngest and most at-risk public school children. An awardee of the renowned Maxine Greene Foundation for its groundbreaking work in arts-education, supported by the New York Community Trust, Bloomberg Philanthropies,The Catalog for Giving and other notable funders, Time In's powerful aesthetic, intellectual and social-emotional programming provides a clear antidote to the debilitating inequities that children living in high-risk, chronically impoverished communities struggle with daily. Now an ongoing part of a normal school day for hundreds of New York's most disadvantaged public elementary school children, Time In recreates the New York Magazine Best of NY HiArt! program, which for 20 years has served the children of some of the world's most privileged families -- from David Bowie and Hugh Jackman to Rupert Murdoch and Mort Zuckerman - as well as in residencies at The Hollingworth Center for Gifted Education (Teacher's College), and the Speyer Legacy School for exceptionally gifted children. Beginning with 30 kindergarteners from Harlem's failing Family Academy in 2006, Time In was founded on the belief that life-long learners and leaders emerge not from punitive time outs, but from effective participation in the real world. Every child, regardless of socio-economic background, is entitled to a thoughtfully crafted, arts-enriched education in which each individual child's talents and needs are recognized, and the support for greater creativity, intelligence, self-esteem and a brighter, better future is more than just a promise.

Divine Feminine: New Masterpieces from Nepal - Tibet House US
Through May 11, 2018 - New York

This exhibition presents new work from the Dharmapala Thangka Center in Nepal. It celebrates the significant and specific roles of female icons in the liberation and enlightenment of sentient beings. In Tibetan Buddhism, a female Buddha is considered to be the mother of all Buddhas and sentient beings. In Tantrism, female buddhas are important aspects of the enlightenment practice known as Atti yoga (maha yoga). In Tibetan art, these female icons and figures are depicted as buddhas, bodhisattvas, historical figures such as lineage founders, and also yidams and dharma protectors in peaceful, semi-wrathful or wrathful forms. This is the second showing of works from the Dharmapala Center at the Tibet House US Gallery. Master artist Karsang Lama from the Dharmapala Center is a national treasure in Nepal and a world renowned painter of traditional tangkas. His work appears in monasteries and museums in Asia, Europe and the United States. The Dharmapala Thangka Center promotes the Himalayan Buddhist art and tradition, and is affiliated with a monastic tradition of the northern Buddhist artisans of Tibet and Nepal. The Center has trained hundreds of Tangka artists over three decades.

Human Nature - Grace Building
Through May 18, 2018 - New York City

Curator Tom Kotik will work with a select group of artists who will interpret nature, or use organic forms as their inspiration in three dimensions.Human Nature features new work by Mckendree Key, Katerina Lanfranco, Kristyna and Marek Midle, John Monti, Colin O'Con, and Carolyn Salas. The exhibition is the sixth commissioned pedestal project. Nature, and our relationship to it, has been a theme in art since humans began drawing on cave walls during prehistoric times. Over the millennia, our methods of expression may have changed but our fascination with observing the natural world remains constant. Commissioned by Arts Brookfield, Human Nature presents six new works by seven contemporary artists inspired by natural landscape and the use of organic forms. Utilizing visual cues from nature, the artworks in this exhibition are distinct interpretations of our environment and the complex relationships to it. Some works utilize organic materials such as plants and natural fibers to reveal creative interactions with the earth’s resources; others rely on man-made and industrial materials, highlighting the contrast between the modern world and the idealized vision of nature we inherently possess. The vibrant and unique interpretations in Human Nature serve as visual landmarks in our perpetual quest to understand the ever-changing world that surrounds us. – Tom Kotik, curator

Peter Hujar: Speed of Life - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a bohemian life of poverty, taking paying jobs only when necessary and focusing on the subjects that compelled him. In his book Portraits in Life and Death (1976) Hujar combined intimate portraits of his downtown coterie (painters, performers, choreographers, and writers) with studies of mummies in the Palermo Catacombs. Briefly a lover and then a mentor to the young artist David Wojnarowicz, in his final seven years Hujar continued chronicling a creative Downtown subculture running out of time in a fast-changing city.

The Metromaniacs - The Duke On 42nd Street
Through May 26, 2018 - New York

It's springtime in Paris, 1738. Metromania, the poetry craze, is all the rage. Damis, a young, would-be poet with a serious case of verse-mania falls for a mysterious poetess from Breton, Meriadec de Peaudoncqville (say it). She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman (yes, that's right) with a touch of the mania himself—looking to unload his sexy but dimwitted daughter—who also just happens to be cuckoo for couplets. Soon scheming servants, verbal acrobatics, and mistaken identities launch a breathless series of twists and turns in this breezy "translaptation" of a rediscovered French farce by comedic master David Ives (The Liar, Venus in Fur, All in the Timing). Red Bull Theater, the company that brought you recent acclaimed productions of The Government Inspector, Coriolanus, and The School for Scandal, is proud to present the New York Premiere of this new David Ives play.

Stephen Shore - Museum of the City of New York
Through May 28, 2018 - Manhattan

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

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

Unleashing, a site-specific multi-media art exhibition across the hallways of Teachers College - Everett Lounge Teachers College, Columbia University
Through May 31, 2018 - New York, NY

Unleashing Opening Reception Thursday, April 5, 6 – 8 p.m., Everett Lounge Teachers College, Columbia University 525 West 120th Street • New York, NY 10027 T: +1 212 678-3461 Unleashing April 1 – May 31, 2018 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily http://unleashing.net and http://unleashing.tc.columbia.edu ____________________________________________________________________________________ Unleashing is a site-specific multi-media art exhibition across the hallways of Teachers College highlighting concepts of the American philosopher Maxine Greene, whose idea of “social imagination” provides the ground for the works on display. Carrying forward the success of Doing and Undergoing on view throughout Teachers College in 2013, Unleashing features the work of 28 international artists, and is accompanied by an audiovideo guide leading visitors to each of the 21 sites of the exhibition, as well as by special public programming, guided tours, a video screening series, and artist talks. The exhibition and its title Unleashing are inspired by Greene’s book Releasing the Imagination, which is driven by a vision of aesthetic education, equality, and social justice. “The role of imagination,” she argues, “is not to resolve, not to point the way, not to improve. It is to awaken, to disclose the ordinarily unseen, unheard, and unexpected.” For Greene, artists, like educators, propose how the world could be other than it is. Drawing on a collaborative model, this exhibition puts forward an ethics of inclusion, one that is in dialogue with its built and natural environment, the diverse communities of students, teachers, staff and community members that traverse through or pass by the building daily. Unleashing is driven by the idea of responding to a particular space, Teachers College–a complex of interconnected buildings whose eclectic architecture and spatial politics serve as an evocative testimony to how education and society have changed over time. The building, as the gravitas of this exhibition, serves as an ethical reminder, to paraphrase renowned architect Mark Foster Cage, of the things that are greater than us. Through an emphasis on process at the core of Unleashing, we seek to consider the place of education and knowledge production. As a structured form of transmitting knowledge, education is informed by the current ideals and perceived accomplishments of society and humanity more broadly. The fallibility of these assumptions--one that is integral to any form of knowledge--is always potentially transmitted, too, thus making the possibility of failure part and parcel of education itself. Taking our cue from Maxine Greene, Unleashing looks at positions taken by artists who are willing to unlearn what were made norms before them and develop their own artistic language and research based on possibilities that they create, thus participating in knowledge production processes to imagine new prospects and redefining that which is humanly possible. The exhibition includes works by Fanny Allie, Nadav Assor, Brandy Bajalia, Burcak Bingol, Jean Marie Casbarian, Gregory Climer, Steffani Jemison, Ebru Kurbak, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Elisabeth Molin, Yasmin Jahan Nupur, Jacob Olmedo, Bernd Oppl, ?ener Ozmen, Rafael Pagatini, Rit Premnath and Avi Alpert, Macon Reed, Saša Tka?enko, Hurmat Ul Ain and Rabbya Naseer, Jaret Vadera, Marion Wilson and Cathy Lebowitz, as well as Caroline Woolard and Jeff Warren. The exhibition is accompanied by the Unleashing ScreenSaver Project by (c) merry and a commissioned video work by Chelsea Knight guides visitors throughout the building. Unleashing is directed by Richard Jochum and curated by Livia Alexander and I??n Onol. The project is made possible by the Office of the Provost and the Art & Art Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University. The exhibition will be on display from April 1 – May 31, 2018, at 525 West 120th Street, New York, NY 10027. A public reception will be held on April 5, 2018, from 6 – 8 p.m., in the Everett Lounge. Video works by Sasha Litvintseva, Shelly Silver, Sille Storihle and Jumana Manna, as well as Saša Tka?enko will screen in the Media Services Lounge on select days. Guided tours will be offered throughout.

ioNature: Wheat Field - 5 Manhattan West
Through June 01, 2018 - New York City

ioNature: Wheat Field is an interactive kinetic installation that is activated by the presence of an audience. As one approaches, the stalks of wheat ripple in waves as if caused by the invisible currents created by the body moving through space. As you move, so does the wheat; you are interconnected. The entire art installation visually and metaphorically illustrates the connection between the body and nature and the technology used to control it. The installation raises a few questions: What will the future be like when everything is connected? For better or for worse, what role will be we play in using technology to wield those connections? Will technology, which is created and executed by mankind, ever completely control our natural surroundings?

Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through June 03, 2018 - New York

Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1886–1973) is a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. The first exhibition in the United States exclusively devoted to the artist focuses on her pivotal production from the 1920s, from her earliest Parisian works, to the emblematic modernist paintings produced in Brazil, ending with her large-scale, socially driven works of the early 1930s. The exhibition features over 130 artworks, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and other historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Born in São Paulo at the turn of the 19th century, Tarsila?as she is affectionately known in Brazil?studied piano, sculpture, and drawing before leaving for Paris in 1920 to attend the Académie Julian. Throughout subsequent sojourns in Paris, she studied with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes, and Fernand Léger, fulfilling what she called her "military service in Cubism," ultimately arriving at her signature painterly style of synthetic lines and sensuous volumes depicting landscapes and vernacular scenes in a rich color palette. The exhibition follows her journeys between France and Brazil, through Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, charting her involvement with an increasingly international artistic community, and her critical role in the emergence of modernism in Brazil: in 1928, Tarsila painted Abaporu, which quickly spawned the Anthropophagous Manifesto, and became the banner for this transformative artistic movement that sought to digest external influences and produce an art for and of Brazil itself.

Ballet des Amériques' 2018 Summer Intensive Program Auditions - Ballet des Amériques
Through June 09, 2018 - Port Chester

Summer intensives have a long tradition in the world of dance - bridging the gap between the spring and fall semesters - but also fulfilling a complementary role with respect to the regular school curriculum: Largely free from academic obligations, students are able to concentrate on dance and make leaps of progress in training, iron out weaknesses, and consolidate what was achieved during the academic year. The warmth of the summer months also makes for greatly increased flexibility, which, when intensely exercised, can propel students to a higher level.

The 2018 Summer Intensive is a 4-week program with classes and workshops in: ballet, pre-pointe, pointe, répertoire, partnering, modern dance, modern jazz, barre au sol, music and voice, ballet terminology (French), dance history, acting, arts and crafts, folkloric dance, and stage makeup.

Participation in the summer program is by audition only.
