Unexpected Joy - York Theatre Company at St. Peter's
Through May 27, 2018 - New York

Due to popular demand, The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director; Evans Haile, Executive Director), dedicated to the development of new musicals and the preservation of musical gems from the past, in association with Jim Kierstead, Aria Entertainment, Gabby Hanna & Marcy Feller, Riki Kane Larimer, Linda & Craig Wielkotz, Drew Desky & Dane Levens/Michael Mills, William Fernandez/Behzad Dabu, joyfully announces a one-week extension of the New York premiere of the new musical Unexpected Joy, with book and lyrics by Bill Russell (Side Show) and music by Janet Hood (Elegies for Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens with Bill Russell) at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue), where performances began April 24, 2018. Directed by Amy Anders Corcoran (Associate Director, Escape to Margaritaville), and with music direction by Beth Falcone (Les Misérables), the four-member all-female cast features Courtney Balan (Falsettos) as Rachel, Allyson Kaye Daniel (Sistas: The Musical) as Lou, Luba Mason (Pretty Filthy) as Joy, and Celeste Rose (Sister Act) as Tamara. Unexpected Joy is the story of three generations of female singers, long-held family tensions and a week together where change is in the air. In modern day Cape Cod, Joy, a baby boomer and proud hippie, is holding a memorial concert for the other half of her popular musical duo, Jump & Joy. When her conservative daughter and her rebellious granddaughter arrive from Oklahoma, the sparks fly as one family seeks to find the common ground in their different values, dreams and goals. Unexpected Joy tackles tolerance, family ties, and the battles we fight to create our own identity. This new musical is a heartfelt and hilarious story that weaves folk-rock, pop, and blues in uniting a family that hasn't experienced true joy together for decades.

Live Piano Karaoke with Julian Velard - Sid Gold's Request Room
May 09, 2018 - New York

With a style The Sunday Times calls "catchy but complicated; a surprisingly rare combination," Julian Velard is piano-pop tunesmith recalling Stephen Sondheim or Randy Newman at the peak of their talents. With 4 albums of original material under his belt, he's toured internationally alongside the likes of Jamie Cullum, Paul Carrack, and Amy Macdonald. His quirky, native new york, piano-man sound has found its largest audience in Holland, where he headlined Amsterdam's legendary venue, Paradiso.

Jason Consolacion, BRBRCK - Arlene's Grocery
May 09, 2018 - New York

Jason Consolacion is a NYC-based singer-songwriter who's style of rock is influenced by the folk subtleties of Paul Simon and the pop/R&B sensitivities of Stevie Wonder. His most recent album, a self-titled EP available on Apple Music and Spotify, was accepted by the Recording Academy for Grammy consideration in 2014, and tracks accepted for consideration in 2015. The Houston Chronicle described Jason's music as, "a comfortable blend of pop hooks, easy guitar riffs and confident vocals." Mike Berberich (BRBRCK) is a genre-bending hip-hop songwriter based in Brooklyn, New York, where he writes and produces all of his own music. His live shows are an explosion of energy, with a full band backing the MC as he weaves his witty sense of humor through a nonstop barrage of spitfire wordplay and brass-knuckle punchlines. He has collaborated with a diverse group of artists, including jazz bassist Felix Pastorius, Anna Morsett of "The Still Tide," singer/songwriter Jason Consolacion, and dozens of local other musicians, MCs, and producers.

Liza Anne, Ian Ferguson - Mercury Lounge
May 09, 2018 - New York

"Growing up, people would always say I was too happy to be depressed, or too social to have anxiety," says Liza Anne Odachowski, the critically acclaimed songwriter better known these days by her stage name Liza Anne. "In their eyes, because I was one thing, I couldn't also be something else. I think we all exist in duality, though. I can be everything and nothing all at once." Duality is at the core of Liza Anne's arresting new album, 'Fine But Dying,' her debut release for indie powerhouse label Arts & Crafts. Synthesizing the elegant sincerity of Angel Olsen with the wry lyricism of Courtney Barnett and the unapologetic candor of Feist, the music is both tough and vulnerable, bold and withdrawn, a helping hand and a middle finger. Firing on all cylinders with distorted alt-rock guitars and explosive drums one minute, hushed and delicate the next, it's an eclectic collection that reflects the messy complications of growing up in the modern age, as the 23-year-old grapples with the fallout of falling in love, reckons with the patriarchy, and stares down the panic disorder she refuses to let define her. 'Fine But Dying' is the sound of an artist taking total control of her life and her art, a proud misfit crafting an aggressively infectious kiss-off to an industry (and a society) that's tried to box her in from day one.

Geographer, so Much Light - The Bowery Ballroom
May 09, 2018 - New York

In the summer of 2005, after a series of deaths in the family, Michael Deni left his hometown in New Jersey for San Francisco. He spent the next several months with a synthesizer he found on the street, turning that tragedy into the songs that would become the foundation for Geographer. Deni played his first shows by lying to promoters about how many people he could bring, handing out fliers by hand, and doing anything he could to get on stage. Cut to 6 years later, an more…

After School Tutoring- All Subjects - Renaissance High School For Musical Theater & Technology
May 09, 2018 - Bronx

I Am The End - Dixon Place
May 09, 2018 - New York

'I am the end' is a text which explores the failure of representative theater. The text's objective is to integrate the idea of stage as a mirror and audience as a spectator; to challenge the idea of passively viewing archetypes being presented in familiar images. It moves from an objective view of the 'the end' to a more subjective one. From what the end of the World is to the end of what the Self is, this show acknowledges that both the World and the Self are theatrical phenomena.

PUNCH Kamikaze: UBU ROI - Dixon Place
May 09, 2018 - New York

'PUNCH Kamikaze' is the term we coined for when artists of various styles and puppet experience are assigned scenes from a play and then we present the pieces in order. No limitation is given on interpretation or puppet style used. This time we are tackling Alfred Jarry's absurdist masterpiece UBU ROI, which was met with riots when it originally premiered in 1896. It is a bawdy and rude dissection of power, greed, and the evil they engender. We think it will be cast in the current White House quite nicely!

Linda Lavin - The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel
Through May 09, 2018 - New York

Weekend (2011) - Videology Bar & Cinema
May 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Weekend follows Russell, who, after randomly picking up artist Glen at a nightclub on a Friday night, unexpectedly spends most of the next 48 hours with him in bedrooms and bars, telling stories and having sex, while developing a connection that will resonate throughout their lives. This affecting and naturalistic romance is beautifully realized, earning comparisons to Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise in its exploration of how two people can come together only briefly, yet impact each other in a profound way.

Talks | Isabel Wilkerson on “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration” - Museum of Arts and Design
May 09, 2018 - new York

MAD is hosting a lecture by Isabel Wilkerson, National Humanities Medalist and author of the Pulitzer Prize winning book The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration. A gifted storyteller, Ms. Wilkerson captivates audiences with the universal story of migration and the enduring search for the American dream, the origins of our shared commonality. She draws a direct link between the leaderless revolution known as the Great Migration and the protest movements for social justice today, both of them responses to unacknowledged and unaddressed history.

May 09, 2018 - New York

Mother Feather, Villins, Vaureen - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
May 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

"If you're feeling this you're my next victim," front-woman Ann Courtney intones with steely-eyed confidence, assuring the audience of motherfeathers ("MFers") of their submission to the cult. With their ferocious and enthralling live show, Mother Feather has ignited a wildfire of followers since hitting the New York club scene in 2010 and attracted the attention of heavy music legend and Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel, who signed the self-proclaimed "pop cock rock" outfit to the label in 2015. Mother Feather is currently wrapping up production on their second LP for Metal Blade. Epic songs warrant larger-than-life costumes and dance, and a garishly bedazzled Courtney and hype-woman sidekick Elizabeth Carena slither, thrust, and high-kick their way through a set that invokes Marc Bolan's cheeky swagger, Bowie's braggadocio, and the howl and shimmy of a "To Bring You My Love"-era PJ Harvey. NYC rock mainstay Gunnar Olsen occupies an authoritatively savage rhythm section propelled by Chris Foley's blistering one-man guitarmy. This is pop cock rock: anthemic riffs, now-or-never bravado, and tight dance beats bolstered by pop precision and purity of mission.

Bombino, Mamarazzi - Brooklyn Bowl
May 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Home. Where the heart is. For Bombino and most other Tuareg, there's only one place that can be. In recent years, the rest of the world has largely written off that home as a hot and savage wasteland, a bolt hole for religious extremists and terrorists, a geopolitical video nasty with little to offer apart from the oil, gold and phosphates that lie beneath its soil. But Bombino would like us to take a closer look and think again. His feelings are beautifully summed up in the song "Tehigren"('Trees'), from his brand new album 'Deran': 'Do not forget the green trees / In our valleys in the Sahara / In the shade of which, / Rest the beautiful girls / Radiant and lovable'. How to celebrate that desert home, how to protect it, develop it, unify it, respect it and, above all, never forget it, are the salient themes of 'Deran.'They're dressed up in ten songs of rare maturity and power that mark a turning point in the career of a guitarist and songwriter who was born in the shade of an acacia tree about eighty miles north west of the ancient town of Agadez, and has since risen to forefront of the new Tuareg guitar generation. It's a turning back the source of everything that makes Bombino who he is.

Art & Activism of the Anthropocene Series: Imagining the Impossible: The Role of Art and Novels in Understanding Climate Change - Fully Registered - the New York Society Library
May 09, 2018 - New York

Climate change is no longer a mere possibility—it's already happening. Glaciers are melting, animal and plant populations are failing, and agricultural practices no longer prevent famine. Around the world, scientists, artists, and activists are addressing climate change in media from nonfiction books to documentary films to live theater. This series brings together writers, journalists, and artists in robust discussion on how they address climate change—and why their work is important in the Anthropocene Era. What role do novelists and artists play in helping others to better imagine the effects of climate change? Is it even possible for them to do this effectively? And what happens to our definition of art once it enters the realm of politics and activism? These questions and others related to art and climate change will be asked and expanded upon in this exciting panel that brings novelists and a visual artist into conversation about their respective work and visions for the future.

The Genesis Plays - 14 Street Y
May 09, 2018 - New york

Five Cities. Three Years. One Book. The Genesis Plays, inspired by five unique narratives in the book of Genesis, were devised between 2015-2017 in Minneapolis, Charleston, Austin, Seattle and Kansas City. The In[heir]itance Project is a theater company that uses a community-driven process of devising, education, and conversation to create original performance events inspired by sacred stories in conversation with a community's own history, narratives, and people.THE ABRAHAM PLAY (Minneapolis/St Paul) Hoping for a quick windfall of inheritance, Abe, a Wall Street stock jock, returns to the office of his recently deceased, estranged father searching for a lost deed. Among the piles of papers strewn about the office he doesn't find the deed. Instead he finds a scavenger hunt his father has left behind for him - and the audience holds the clues. THE REBECCA PLAY (Charleston) The matriarch Rebecca played favorites among her sons, Esau and Jacob, believing one to be the rightful heir. This play marries that narrative to the story of the city of Charleston. The city becomes a mother playing favorites among her children, White and Black. Through a series of scenes and monologues, two actors explore rivalry, racism and how each brother reacts when the roles are reversed. THE JACOB PLAY (Austin) A play that, quite literally, asks Jacob to wrestle with his role as brother, husband, and man of God. The Jacob Play introduces a tag team tussle between Jacob & Rebecca vs Esau and Isaac, a Battle Royale of Leah vs. Rachel vs. Jacob vs. Laban, and finally, the MAIN EVENT: Jacob vs. The Angel of the Lord. Get ready for a hard-hitting, smackdown, knockout wrestling extravaganza - it's the event of the millennium! THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY (Seattle) A historian unearths an ancient papyrus about sisterhood and struggles with what it means for a man to have made this discovery that reveals so much about female identity. And as a new father to twin baby girls, he's looking for advice anywhere he can get it. Created in collaboration with Emmy-award winning filmmaker Ilana Trachtman (Praying with Lior). THE SARAH PLAY (Kansas City) Three actors struggle with how to tell the ancient, sacred story of Sarah and Hagar, the mothers of Isaac and Ishmael, through a modern lens. Drawing from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions, and trying various iterations to determine which religion's version of the narrative gets told, the actors wrestle with how to tell a tale when there are multiple accounts of what happened.

Josh Ritter -Acoustic show - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
May 09, 2018 - Bay Shore

Josh Ritter's acclaimed 20-year career as a songwriter and musician reaches new heights with the release of his ninth full-length album, Gathering. Along with his loyal bandmates, the Royal City Band, Josh returned to the studio with more songs than he'd ever had before at one time. Reenergized after a recent collaboration with legendary musician Bob Weir (who also contributes vocals and guitar to a song on Gathering) and –at the same time — tired of living in the shadow of his earlier self, Josh felt charged with exploring the possibility of cutting himself loose from his own and others' expectations. In his words, "I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms. I still can't tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me."

Saint Thomas: Music for the Eve of Ascension - Saint Thomas Episcopal Church
May 09, 2018 - New York

Bach and Vivaldi gaze from Earth to heaven in this Ascension Eve celebration, concluding the choral season at St. Thomas. Bach's Cantata 37 his first written specifically for the holy occasion, was described by Sir John Eliot Gardiner as "emollient and graceful, a halfway house between a minuet and a waltz, affirming a more serene side to faith." In his "Lutheran" Mass in G minor, Bach affirms his own music, borrowing brilliantly from his Cantatas 72, 102, and 187. Concluding the program is Vivaldi's rousing Gloria, RV.588, the lesser known of the composer's Gloria settings and yet no less masterful as a cascading exhortation of praise.

Rumaan Alam: That Kind of Mother w/ Emma Straub - Books Are Magic
May 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Join us in welcoming Rumaan Alam, the celebrated author of Rich and Pretty, for his new novel about the families we fight to build and those we fight to keep, That Kind of Mother. Like many first-time mothers, Rebecca Stone finds herself both deeply in love with her newborn son and deeply overwhelmed. Struggling to juggle the demands of motherhood with her own aspirations and feeling utterly alone in the process, she reaches out to the only person at the hospital who offers her any real help—Priscilla Johnson—and begs her to come home with them as her son's nanny. When Priscilla dies unexpectedly in childbirth, Rebecca steps forward to adopt the baby. But she is unprepared for what it means to be a white mother with a black son. As she soon learns, navigating motherhood for her is a matter of learning how to raise two children whom she loves with equal ferocity, but whom the world is determined to treat differently.

Mike Pinto Of Good Nature - Mercury Lounge
May 09, 2018 - New York

Mike Pinto has crafted an exceptional style of songwriting, with a truly unique take on Roots, Vintage Rock, Reggae, Ska and Classic Surf, but it's his distinct voice and seamless storytelling that has brought him success both in the United States and overseas. With the release of his debut album (Little District, 2005), Pinto began his attack on the Philadelphia music scene as a solo artist. By 2006, underground success and a fervent, exploding fan base empowered him to expand westward with two nationwide solo acoustic tours. After the second tour Pinto relocated to San Diego, where he immersed himself in the thriving Southern California music scene and quickly gained notoriety. His infectious sound garnered so much attention that Insomnia Radio included his single "One More Time" on a hard hitting compilation of the SoCal sound's brightest groups, including DI and Slightly Stoopid. In very short order, Mike Pinto transitioned from a kid from Philly playing acoustic in coffee houses and tiny bars to a prominent fixture on the SoCal music scene.

g/leaning: assemblage, quotation, intertextuality with Emily Skillings Emily Skillings - Poets House
May 09, 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.

Fatty Sundays: Pretzel Tasting - Strand Book Store
May 09, 2018 - Union Square

Now based in Brooklyn, Fatty Sundays has a 15+ flavor list. There's a chocolate covered pretzel for every palette and each and every pretzel is thoughtfully flavored, generously dipped and perfectly decorated. As the company expands, their mission stays constant: to continue to share their gourmet, fun-flavored chocolate covered pretzels with the world and make people happy, one pretzel at a time! Why Fatty Sundays you ask? Fatty Sundays was often a family day when everyone was home and spending time together. It was a day to kick back, relax and recharge, and indulge a little. While the mantra was "everything in moderation" growing up, sisters Ali and Lauren each developed a notoriously big sweet tooth (which they still have today!) It only helped that their Mom was an incredible baker – chocolate covered pretzels, brownies and cookies were her thing. Thus they dubbed Sundays, "Fatty Sundays", a day to enjoy Mom's treats!

Dan Reed Network, Tempt - Arlene's Grocery
May 10, 2018 - New York

Dan Reed Network formed in Portland, Oregon in 1984 and quickly began packing out local clubs with an infectious mixture of hard rock, funk and soul elements. After releasing an independent EP in 1986 and landing atop local radio charts, DRN signed to Polygram/Mercury Records. According to then manager Bill Graham, he saw in DRN the same "pure energy" that he recognized the first time he saw the Rolling Stones. Their first single "Ritual", peaked at number 38 in the Billboard Hot 100. In late 1987, the group released its self-titled debut album, produced by Bruce Fairbairn (Bon Jovi, Aerosmith). The well-received album charted in the US Top 100, garnered a four star review in Rolling Stone, and formed the basis for a successful worldwide touring and recording career for the band. Fight Another Day is the groundbreaking funk rock band's first album in over 25 years. DRN is once again delivering their signature rock tracks with funk and dance undertones, and the band is ready to tour the world once again! After crowd-pleasing reunion tours in Sweden, the US, and noteworthy performances at the UK's Download Festival and Rockingham Festival, the members of DRN felt the chemistry was flowing again and decided it was time to get back in the studio and create a new album for another generation, while honouring all those who supported the band since its debut album back in 1987.

Ani DiFranco, Gracie and Rachel - Music Hall of Williamsburg
May 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

"My last record was very inward-looking," says Ani DiFranco. "I was pregnant and then raising a screaming infant. But now that kid is about to turn four, so I got out of the weeds of personal space and started looking outward again, being more engaged, more big 'P' Political. As an artist, I like to be out in the world, and what initially compelled me was to try to push society to a better place. So when I'm not in heartbreak or motherhood mode, that's where you'll naturally find me." With her twentieth studio album, Binary, the iconic singer/songwriter/activist/poet/DIY trendsetter returns to territory that brought her to the world's attention more than twenty-five years ago. One of the first artists to create her own label in 1990, she has been recognized among the feminist pantheon for her entrepreneurship, social activism, and outspoken political lyrics. At a time of global chaos and confusion, DiFranco is kicking ass and taking names, with a set of songs offering a wide range of perspective and musical scope.

Megative, JonnyGo Figure - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
May 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

Fusing the spirit of late-70's UK punk and reggae with today's sense of urgency and foreboding to create a deep, dense, subterranean dub, MEGATIVE is an NYC collective of musicians, artists and producers who aspire to stand up tall amidst the noise and confusion of the world with a big, bold, defiant sound. Part Gorillaz, part The Clash, laced with King Tubby-style dub FX and swirling sirens straight out of Jah Shakka's sound system, MEGATIVE is the sound of all these jamming together in an underground basement after-party at the end of the world. Singer Tim Fletcher's vocals channel the haunting, cool detachment of a young Terry Hall (The Specials) and fuse with the moody subs generated by Gus Van Go, of cult Montreal punk ensemble Me, Mom & Morgentaler, who has gone from frontman in his own right to become a much-sought-after, decorated producer in the contemporary independent scene. Together, these longtime fellow conspirators have been plotting the birth of MEGATIVE for many years.

Also on the program: Villa-Lobos's hauntingly beautiful Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, and NYC premieres of works by Verdery himself and Seymour Bernstein – recently the subject of Ethan Hawke's loving documentary film, Seymour: An Introduction.

Sloan - The Bowery Ballroom
May 10, 2018 - New York

That title isn't just some random number. Sloan 12 is indeed the 12th album from Canadian power- pop perennials Sloan, which means it's as good as Led Zeppelin IV, Black Sabbath's 4, and Chicago 4 all put together. But seriously: not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record, and not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th record with all four original members, and not only are Sloan the rare band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are equally prolific songwriters, they're arguably the only band to make it to their 12th album with four original members who are both equally prolific songwriters and all still working at the top of their respective games, sounding utterly ageless in the process. On 12, each of the four principals contribute three stellar songs that play to their core strengths: Patrick Pentland with the soaring rock anthems, Chris Murphy with the playful, participatory sing-alongs, Jay Ferguson with the jaunty prog-pop gems, and Andrew Scott with the whimsical innerspace explorations. Says Murphy, "I guess with the album title, we are showing off the fact that we have 12 records." Actually that's not entirely true. "When we were making the record, I kept Tweeting about it and hashtagging the posts #Sloan12," Pentland "So I was like, let's just call it Sloan12. Naming records is always the worst and we can never agree on a title!"

A powerful entertainer and industry innovator, Broza awes and inspires audiences with his energetic, musically alluring performances that convey his message of optimism and healing. Noa, together with her musical collaborator Gil Dor, is frequently dubbed Israel's leading international singer, and has performed for three popes and wowed audiences in 50 countries. Awad, star of stage and screen, is the first Palestinian in Israel to represent the country at the mania-inducing Eurovision competition. They will be joined by a number of emerging musical talents, such as Sameh "SAZ" Zakout, Sun Tailor, Micah Hendler and other special guests.

Todd Terry, Rissa Garcia, Sean Cormac & Chili Davis Plus Goonroom in the Bad Room - Good Room
May 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

We're celebrating our 2nd anniversary with our “2 Year 2 Night Special”. The first night features the return of overall dance music LEGEND/ICON Todd Terry at Good Room on Thursday 5/10 along with Forward Disco crew and Goonroom residents Day Cart & Wig-Wam in the Bad Room. “Todd Terry is one of the quintessential NYC dance music producers – for more than 25 years. Born in Brooklyn, Todd Terry is as much New York as it gets. Blessed with the instinct, aesthetic and freedom that comes with hip hop, he created a unique brand of house music. Heavy on the sample tip and always aimed directly at the dancefloor, his earliest records like Bango, A Day In The Life or Can You Party set the parameters for his musical universe. Graced with an unmistakable sound signature, the house sound of Todd Terry is one of the essential reference points of this music – you just know a Todd Terry beat when you hear it. Citing classic disco, rock or funk records throughout his works, Terry’s tracks were as much in favour with US-American DJ heavyweights like Tony Humphries as they were with the hyped-up club music crowds on the UK island. Todd Terry’s effectiveness spread further through his several aliases like Gypsymen or CLS, and records like Jungle Brothers’ seminal I’ll House You, his classic chart-topping remix for Everything But The Girl’s Missing, and his very own version of Keep On Jumpin’. His labels TNT and Freeze released a nitty-gritty range from vocal house to hip hop instrumentals and disco cut-ups, as well as his infamous Unreleased Projects.” -RBMA Half Price Door Admission with Good Room Membership Card

The Bones of J.R. Jones - Mercury Lounge
May 10, 2018 - New York

n a recent trip to Southern California, Jonathon Linaberry did the one thing he knows best: he wrote music. That it happened to be during his honeymoon mattered little to the New York-based musician. "I feel like I'm always writing," the artist who performs as The Bones of J.R. Jones says with a laugh. "I feel ever more confident in the sound I'm trying to create." In many ways, Linaberry is a victim of his own creativity. Where some musicians lock themselves away in a studio to create an album or a concrete collection of songs, Linaberry can't help but write whenever inspiration strikes. The blues singer and multi-instrumentalist, who incorporates elements of old-time folk into the all-encompassing persona of The Bones of J.R. Jones, describes his songwriting as "a continuing evolution." Nonetheless, he admits he often wishes his ever-wandering creative spirit would settle down. "I would jump at the chance to have the flexibility where I can have six months locked away in a room and focus on one solid cohesive theme for a record," Linaberry says. "But unfortunately with my schedule I try to cram these songs into the spaces of my life where I can fit them."

The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business - 92Y
May 10, 2018 - Upper East Side

Valor, Agravio Y Mujer - Repertorio Español
May 10, 2018 - New York

In this comedy of honor, Ana Caro criticizes the customs of her era and the position of women in the social order while ridiculing through parody the erotic myth of Don Juan. The protagonist, Leonor, seeks to recover her lost honor against Don Juan who made a false promise of marriage while seducing her. To revenge herself, Leonor dresses in male attire (a common technique in Spanish Golden Age Theatre), calls herself Leonardo, and pretends to be a rival suitor for her hand. Don Juan has already moved to seduce the Duchess Estela, who in turn falls in love with "Leonardo." After a series of deceits and much ado, Leonor denounces Don Juan and regains her honor by forcing him into marriage with her. Although a typical finale for a 17th century Spanish play, the unconventional aspect is that a woman has solved her own misfortune without the help of a man.

Toward an Ethics of Animation - New Museum
May 10, 2018 - New York

Join us for the world premiere of Anna Craycroft's stop-motion animation film, which the artist constructed by shooting new footage weekly in her exhibition "Motion into Being." Craycroft is the artist-in-residence for the Department of Education and Public Engagement's Spring 2018 R&D Season: ANIMATION. Following the screening, a lively conversation with art historian Gloria Sutton unpacks Craycroft's project and examines the ways that animation—the movement of images and bodies—articulates new questions about sense and meaning within contemporary digital culture. Using a historically specific twentieth-century apparatus (Max Fleischer's Setback Camera and Walt Disney's Multiplane camera) to not only capture images over the course of her residency at the New Museum, but also to interpolate the material culture of more contemporary imaging technologies, Craycroft builds an accretive, time-based examination of personhood and anthropomorphism. The resulting animation demonstrates how our understanding of personhood is comprised of complex and often contradictory attitudes, expectations, and definitions. Distinct from the ways that early twentieth-century European avant-garde film advanced narratives of "failed vision" and "enlightenment" within the transformation of modern life, this conversation reconsiders the aesthetics of abstraction and experimentation that are beholden to an ethics of contingency and fragmentation within contemporary culture. Gloria Sutton is Associate Professor of Contemporary Art History and New Media at Northeastern University in Boston. She received her doctorate from the University of California Los Angeles and has been a fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program and the Getty Research Institute. A research affiliate in the Art Culture Technology Program at MIT, Sutton is the author of The Experience Machine: Stan VanDerBeek's Movie Drome and Expanded Cinema (2015), published by MIT Press. Anna Craycroft was born in Oregon in 1975 and raised in New York. She has had solo shows at Ben Maltz Gallery, Los Angeles (2017); Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Portland, OR (2013); the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin (2010); Tracy Williams Ltd., New York (2008, 2009, 2011); and Le Case D'Arte, Milan (2005). She has had two-person exhibitions at Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (2015); REDCAT, Los Angeles (2014); and Sandroni Rey, Los Angeles (2007). Craycroft recently debuted a major new work, The Earth Is a Magnet, commissioned for the ICA Boston exhibition "The Artist's Museum" (2016). Other notable group exhibitions include "Champs Elysees" at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013), and MoMA P.S.1's "Greater New York" (2005). She has received commissions for public sculpture from Socrates Sculpture Park (2004), the Lower Manhattan Cultural Center (2005), and Art in General (2006), New York, and from Den Haag Sculptuur, The Hague (2008).

MEGATIVE Album Launch Party hosted by Deadly Dragon Sound feat. The 1865, DJ JonnyGo Figure & Guest Selectas - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
May 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

Fusing the spirit of late-70's UK punk and reggae with today's sense of urgency and foreboding to create a deep, dense, subterranean dub, MEGATIVE is an NYC collective of musicians, artists and producers who aspire to stand up tall amidst the noise and confusion of the world with a big, bold, defiant sound. Part Gorillaz, part The Clash, laced with King Tubby-style dub FX and swirling sirens straight out of Jah Shakka's sound system, MEGATIVE is the sound of all these jamming together in an underground basement after-party at the end of the world. Singer Tim Fletcher's vocals channel the haunting, cool detachment of a young Terry Hall (The Specials) and fuse with the moody subs generated by Gus Van Go, of cult Montreal punk ensemble Me, Mom & Morgentaler, who has gone from frontman in his own right to become a much-sought-after, decorated producer in the contemporary independent scene. Together, these longtime fellow conspirators have been plotting the birth of MEGATIVE for many years. The pair have known each other since the early oughts, with Gus producing Tim's former band, Montreal/NYC indie stars The Stills. The seedlings of the original MEGATIVE manifesto were sown years ago during an overnight drive that Tim and Gus took while listening to Combat Rock, The Clash's underrated late-career masterpiece. Both yearned for more of the album's fiercely social stance, and strange, narcotic soundscapes, and decided it would be up to them to create more of it themselves.

The Temptations and the Four Tops - St. George Theatre
May 10, 2018 - Staten Island

Two legendary supergroups – together again! From "My Girl" and "The Way You Do The Things You Do" to "Baby, I Need Your Loving" and "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)", enjoy an evening full of your favorite Motown memories from two classic 1960s hitmakers. The Temptations: For more than fifty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world. "The crowds are bigger, the sales are sizzling," says one industry report. "The outpouring of affection for this super-group has never been greater". The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine invented by Berry Gordy, The Temps began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn't until 1964 however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced "The Way You Do the things You Do" turned the guys into stars. An avalanche of hits followed, many of which…"My Girl," for instance…attained immortality. "It's Growing," "Since I Lost My Baby;," "Get Ready," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "Beauty Is only Skin Deep," "I Wish It Would Rain"…the hits kept coming. The classic lineup was Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin. Beyond the fabulous singing, The temps became known for smooth stepping and flawless presentations. The Temptations Walk became a staple of American style. Flair, flash and class. Millions of fans saw their Temptations as cultural heroes. When the sixties and seventies turned political, The Temps got serious. They changed their tone, dress and music. Producer Norman Whitfield led the way. His Temptations hits, many featuring Dennis Edwards who had replaced David Ruffin, burned with intensity. "Runaway Child" "Cloud Nine," "I Can't Get Next to You," "Papa Was a Rolling Stone", and "Psychedelic Shack" still smolder. Other stellar singers…Richard Street, Ali-Ollie Woodson, Theo Peoples…joined and adding their luster to the groups' growing fame. No matter the change in personnel, The Temptations remained true to The Temptations tradition. They survived the whims of fashion, whether disco or techno, and stuck to their guns. "Great singing," says Otis, "will always prevail." In the eighties, The Temps prevailed with smashes like the Otis Williams' penned "Treat Her Like A Lady." Then in the nineties, another Temptation explosion: It began with their appearance on Motown 25 in 1983; it continued with the NBC mini-series that chronicled the group's history, a ratings triumph over two nights in prime time. An Emmy Award followed. Then came a series of acclaimed records: Temptations Miniseries, 1998-Number 1 rated for two nights. Nominated for 5 Emmys, including best miniseries and winner of 1. For Lovers Only, a collection of love standards, termed an instant classic by critics, remains among the most cherished of all Temptations recordings. Phoenix Rising, went through the roof, a platinum-plus mega-hit featuring "Stay," the Narada Michael Walden produced song that topped the charts. Ear Resistible, nailed a Grammy and a legion of new fans. Awesome, released in 2001 is The Temptations at their freshest, strongest, and most appealing. Reflections, was released in 2005, nominated for a Grammy and brought to the world The Temptations versions of some of Motown's greatest songs. Get Ready, This DVD was released in 2006- One of the largest selling music DVD ever The Temptations Musical, 2016 Musical based on Otis Williams's book & mini-series. The current lineup consists of: Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, Willie Greene Jr. "The more we change," says veteran Ron Tyson, "the more we stay true to ourselves. We're about singing straight-up soul. It's a style that will live on forever." "The Temps have always been known for great lead singer's", says Williams. "Today we have four of the greatest leads in the proud history of the group." The soaring voice of Philadelphia born and raised Ron Tyson, perhaps the best high tenor in the business. Terry Weeks, who grew up in Alabama and spent eight years in the Air Force before his chance encounter with Otis. After an A Cappella audition on a Hollywood street corner; Otis was so impressed and brought him into The Temptation family. Larry Braggs is passionate, powerful and very spiritual. These are also the amazing attributes of the voice of this two-time Grammy-nominated artist. Cut from the same cloth as some of the world's greatest vocalists, Larry has one of the most notable voices in the business. With a vocal range over three octaves and a command of the stage like no other, Larry has become one of the most electrifying entertainers on tour. This has gained him the respect and praise of his peers and fans all over the world. Willie Greene is a Bass vocalist who was born in Birmingham, Alabama. In the early-sixties Willie first saw The Temptations on The Lloyd Thaxton Show. They sang "The Way you do The Things you do" and "Get Ready". Even though I was just a child… I knew that I was a "Temptation Forever!" Throughout my career I have had the honor, privilege and pleasure of recording and performing with Lyle Lovett, Ry Cooder, Dolly Parton, John Fogerty, George Harrison(The Beatles)….This opportunity to become a part of the "Great Temptation Legacy" is truly God's greatest musical gift to me! I would like to thank Mr. Otis Williams for his tenacity in keeping the group together and granting me this opportunity! "Our challenge," says Williams, "is to live in the present while respecting the past. Our past is filled with riches only a fool would discard. At the same time, we thrive on competition. As a Motowner, I grew up in the most competitive musical atmosphere imaginable. But we also understand that for a group with history, no matter how glorious that history might be, reinvention is the name of the game." "When I tell people we are God's group," says Otis, a remarkable modest man, "I don't mean it arrogantly. It's just that we have been tested time and again and keep coming back. We have suffered the death of so many legendary singers…Paul Williams, David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Melvin Franklin. Other's like Dennis Edwards, Richard Street, Ali-Ollie Woodson and Theo Peoples have left, and yet our unity is tighter, our sound brighter and our popularity greater. Someone has watched over this group. Someone has protected our integrity. Someone has said…just go on singing and it'll get better." And so THE TEMPTATIONS go on…….and on…..and on…….. The Four Tops: The quartet, originally called the Four Aims, made their first single for Chess in 1956, and spent seven years on the road and in nightclubs, singing pop, blues, Broadway, but mostly jazz—four-part harmony jazz. When Motown's Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had hustled a national "Tonight Show" appearance, he signed them without an audition to be the marquee act for the company's Workshop Jazz label. That proved short-lived, and Stubbs' powerhouse baritone lead and the exquisite harmonies of Fakir, Benson, and Payton started making one smash after another with the writing-producing trio Holland-Dozier-Holland. Their first Motown hit, "Baby I Need Your Loving" in 1964, made them stars and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)," a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown's longest-running chart toppers; it was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, "It's The Same Old Song" (no. 2 R&B/no. 5 pop). Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy: the no. 1 "Reach Out I'll Be There," "Standing In The Shadows Of Love" (no. 2 R&B/no. 6 pop) and "Bernadette" (no. 3 R&B/no. 4 pop)—an extraordinary run of instant H-D-H classics. Other Tops hits from the decade included "Ask The Lonely," "Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over)," "Something About You," "You Keep Running Away," "7-Rooms Of Gloom" and their covers of "Walk Away Renee" and "If I Were A Carpenter." The group was also extraordinarily popular in the U.K. After H-D-H split from Motown, producer Frank Wilson supervised the R&B Top 10 hits "It's All In The Game" and "Still Water (Love)" at the start of the seventies. The Tops also teamed with Motown's top girl group, the Supremes, post-Diana Ross. Billing themselves The Magnificent Seven for a series of albums, they hit with a cover of "River Deep – Mountain High." When Motown left Detroit in 1972 to move to Los Angeles, the steadfast Tops decided to stay at home, and with another label. They kept up a string of hits with ABC-Dunhill for the next few years: "Ain't No Woman (Like The One I've Got)," a Top 5 hit; the Top 10 "Keeper Of The Castle"; and the R&B Top 10's "Are You Man Enough (from the movie Shaft In Africa)," "Sweet Understanding Love," "One Chain Don't Make No Prison" (later covered by Santana), "Midnight Flower" and the disco perennial "Catfish." In 1980 the group moved to Casablanca Records. The following year they were at no. 1 again, with "When She Was My Girl," making them one of the few groups to have hits in three consecutive decades. They also scored R&B Top 40s with the ballads "Tonight I'm Gonna Love You All Over" and "I Believe In You And Me," the original version of the 1996 Whitney Houston smash. And the Tops were heard in the film Grease 2 with "Back To School Again." By 1983, riding the wave of the company's 25th anniversary celebration, the Tops were back with Motown and H-D-H. The reunion resulted in the R&B Top 40 hits "I Just Can't Walk Away" and "Sexy Ways." They signed with Arista later in the decade, and there they racked up their final solo Top 40 hit, "Indestructible," which was the theme of the 1988 Summer Olympics. That year they also partnered with Aretha Franklin, a longtime friend from Detroit, for the Top 40 R&B "If Ever A Love There Was." During this period, Stubbs stepped out and gained notoriety for voicing the man-eating plant Audrey II in the film musical Little Shop Of Horrors, for which he sang the cult classic "Mean Green Mother From Outer Space." In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Though they would no longer have hits on record, the group continued to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly, a towering testament to the enduring legacy of the Motown Sound they helped shape and define. Following Payton's death in 1997, the group briefly worked as a trio until Theo Peoples, a former Temptation, was recruited to restore the group to a quartet. When Stubbs subsequently grew ill, Peoples became the lead singer and former Motown artist-producer Ronnie McNeir was enlisted to fill Payton's spot. In 2005, when Benson died, Payton's son Roquel replaced him. For Rolling Stone's 2004 article "The Immortals – The Greatest Artists Of All Time," Smokey Robinson remembered: "They were the best in my neighborhood in Detroit when I was growing up (and) the Four Tops will always be one of the biggest and the best groups ever. Their music is forever.

The Bones of J.R. Jones (East Coast Record Release Show) - Mercury Lounge
May 10, 2018 - New York

When Jonathon Robert Linaberry needs a break from city life, he goes Upstate, near the Catskills, to renovate a little farmhouse he purchased a couple of years back. As he pours himself into his work, J.R. doesn't think about texts, email, or even his music, which he performs solo under the moniker The Bones Of J.R. Jones. His only focus is the house. "That's been an amazing emotional outlet for me," he says of his periodic retreats. "To kind of sustain myself after coming from the road and getting back into the grind of the city, to have this, for lack of a better term, Shangri-La." In a sense, recording and touring as The Bones Of J.R. Jones is its own form of isolation. But you wouldn't immediately think so: As a one-man band, J.R.'s project, which fuses a moody blend of soul, blues, roots, and Americana, sounds enormous both on record and live in concert. That's because J.R. plays—and has grown accustomed to playing—every instrument by himself.

May 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

Lisanne Tremblay's latest project Ecdyses explores the ongoing processes of self-transformation through a journey that travels organically from various world music inspirations to free collective improvisations. Her new ensemble attempts to push the boundaries of instrumental roles and navigates through a renewed sonic world of intricate textures to express shared human experiences such as vulnerability and strength. The New York-based violinist and composer has shared the stage with outstanding artists such as Greg Osby, Liberty Ellman, Stephan Crump, Gerald Cleaver, Rez Abbasi, John Hébert, E.J. Strickland, Carlo De Rosa, Devin Gray, Rick Rosato, Scott Colberg, Eivind Opsvik, Vinnie Sperrazza, Aaron Burnett, and Ches Smith. Her distinctive approach captured the attention of many through her debut album Violinization, which was released in 2015 on Greg Osby's Inner Circle Music label. "A gifted improviser with a highly unconventional yet utterly arresting melodic gift, Lisanne puts the full expressive powers of the violin on display and makes a compelling case for the instrument's broader inclusion in modern jazz." Seton Hawkins, Hot House Jazz Magazine lisannetremblay.com

The Archeology of Poetry—Digging the Moment with t'ai freedom ford - Poets House
May 10, 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.

Global Health Dialogue: Multi-Scalar Analysis of Household Fuel Transitions - University at Buffalo
May 10, 2018 - New York

The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE) seeks to foster novel scholarship that harnesses the power of transdisciplinary collaboration to address the complex sets of barriers to achieving global health equity. This multidisciplinary team received funding from the CGHE in 2017 after participation in an Ideas Lab focused around the Early Life Exposome.Their project seeks to identify enabling environments for household fuel transitions by examining both successful and unsuccessful transition attempts. This presentation will include project updates, next steps, and discussion. Household air pollution causes nearly four million premature deaths per year, primarily among poor women and children in low- and middle-income countries (Rosenthal et al., 2017, Lim et al. 2012). Transitions away from solid fuels improve indoor air quality, directly benefiting the health of women and children in the first two years of life. It remains unclear how to catalyze widespread and sustained fuel transitions, despite countless fuel transition case studies at the local level. This proposal will use mixed methods to identify enabling environments for household fuel transitions by examining both successful and unsuccessful transition attempts.

She, a Choreoplay - The Gym at Judson
Through May 10, 2018 - New York

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.

Josh Rouse - The Bell House
May 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

"Like a baseball player who quietly hits 30 home runs every year or a golfer who regularly finishes in the Top Ten, Josh Rouse's continued streak of excellence is easy to ignore and maybe even downplay a little" -- Tim Sendra, Allmusic.com You don't have to work hard to enjoy Rouse's music. His songs present themselves to you with an open heart, an innate intelligence and an absolute lack of pretension. They are clear-eyed, empathetic and penetrating. Without pandering, they seek to satisfy both your ear and your understanding. The verses draw you in with telling detail, both musical and thematic, and the choruses lift and deliver. They resolve without seeming overly tidy or pat. Josh Rouse was born in Nebraska, and following an itinerant upbringing he eventually landed in Nashville where he recorded his debut Dressed Like Nebraska (1998). The album's acclaim led to tours with Aimee Mann, Mark Etzel and the late Vic Chestnut. The followup- Home (2000)—yielded the song "Directions" which Cameron Crowe used in his film Vanilla Sky. "Every time I've made a record, I've tried to make it different from the last one," says Rouse. "I always became fascinated by a different style of music. But at the end of the day, no matter how eclectic I try to make it, it's my voice and melodic sensibility that tie things together." For his breakthrough album, 1972 (2003), which happens to be the year he was born, Rouse decided to cheer up a bit. Noting that he'd earned a reputation for melancholy, he says, with a laugh, "I figured this is my career, I might as well try to enjoy it." While the Seventies are often identified with singer-songwriters, Rouse was primarily attracted to the warmer sound of albums back then, as well as the more communal feel of the soul music of that time. The follow up, Nashville (2005) continued the hot streak and expanded his audience further. After relocating to Valencia, Spain with his wife Paz, Rouse has released a steady stream of high quality songs and albums. Subtitulo (2006) contained the international indie folk hit "Quiet Town". On El Turista (2010) he even experimented with writing and singing some songs in Spanish. In 2014, he won a Goya Award (the Spanish equivalent of an Oscar) for best song for "Do You Really Want To Be In Love," from the film 'La Gran Familia Española.' His most recent release, The Embers of Time, was one of his strongest—self-described as "my surreal, ex-pat, therapy record." Charles Pitter astutely noted in Pop Matters. "The critics may long for drama and scandal, but The Embers of Time often demonstrates that a simple life could be for the best."

Seminar: Polynomials, Pictures, and Slaves - NY Botancial Gardens
May 11, 2018 - Bronx

Presenting his new book, Collecting the World: Hans Sloane and the Origins of the British Museum (2017), James Delbourgo explores how Sloane, founder of the British Museum, practiced botany in the slave society of colonial Jamaica during his time on the island in 1687–1689. Plant collecting, encyclopedic research, and extended processes of drawing figured heavily in Sloane's botany, which drew on the knowledge of both planters and slaves, and culminated in the lavishly illustrated natural history of the island published in London in 1707–1725. Delbourgo's work offers important new perspectives on the complex relationship between world-wide scientific discovery and 18th-century imperialism. After the lecture, the author will sign his books in the Mertz Library.

NO EVIL 2.0 - Phelps, Roth and Thompson Presented - The Duplex Cabaret Theatre
May 11, 2018 - New York

No Evil 2.0 is the cabaret creation of Jerry Phelps (Mama's Next Big Act, Runner Up), Elliot Roth (Brandy's Piano Bar) and Karen Thompson. In an attempt to respond to the unashamed hate, bigotry and ignorance fully unleashed in November 2016, these three musicians will use their love of soul, folk, a well-placed Broadway tune, and the Judds to let music speak where words cannot. Starting with the realization that American music has always been connected to the resilience and resistance of people of color, LGBT and Jewish folks in the cultural fabric of America, this trio is using music to witness and to let the light come in. No Evil is an unblinking look at the brokenness that leads to oppression and also a deep a celebration of survival, resistance and joy. $15 Ticket in Advance & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre* $20 Ticket at the Door (plus service fee) & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre* *Drinks Must be purchased In the Cabaret Theatre to count towards the Minimum.

PMURT: Kevin Doyle - Dixon Place
May 11, 2018 - New York

Like a sports reporter after a football match, Kevin Doyle dissects the rhetorics of Donald Trump to reveal deeper undercurrents in American public discourse. PMURT combines solo performance with appropriated video to explore parallels between media consolidation and the compression of language. Drawing upon precedents in American politics, Doyle traces the dumbing down of public information and a dwindling tolerance for complex issues. PMURT is based upon Doyle's August 2016 essay, which accurately predicted how Donald Trump would win the Presidential Election. The essay, ignored and dismissed by the New York theatre establishment, was published in October 2016 by Diggit Magazine in The Netherlands. PMURT was commissioned by the Vooruit Arts Center (Gent) and premiered in May 2017 to coincide with President Trump's first visit to Belgium.

Everything Turned to Color - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
May 11, 2018 - New York

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

Dark Star Orchestra - The Capitol Theatre
May 11, 2018 - Port Chester

Performing to critical acclaim celebrating their 20th anniversary year in 2017 and over 2600 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead's extensive catalog and the talent of these seven fine musicians. On any given night, the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead's 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra's members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations. Dark Star Orchestra offers much more than the sound of the Grateful Dead, they truly encapsulate the energy and the experience. It's about a sense of familiarity. It's about a feeling that grabs listeners and takes over. It's about that contagious energy... in short, it's about the complete experience and consistent quality show that the fan receives when attending a Dark Star Orchestra show. Dark Star Orchestra has performed throughout the entire United States, plus Europe & the Caribbean touching down in seven different countries. DSO continues to grow its fan base by playing at larger venues for two and even three night stands as well as performing at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, Milwaukee's SummerFest, The Peach Music Festival, All Good Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, and many more. In addition to appearing at some of the nation's top festival, Dark Star Orchestra hosts its own annual music festival and campaign gathering, titled the 'Dark Star Jubilee', currently in its sixth year where DSO headline all three nights and are joined by a mix of established and up and coming national touring acts. Beyond the shores of the United States, DSO has taken its internationally-acclaimed Grateful Dead tribute to the beaches of Jamaica in the dead of winter for the past five years, with their event appropriately titled 'Jam in the Sand'. Featuring an ocean-side stage, DSO sets up camp to perform shows for four nights along the tropical sands of an all-inclusive resort, selling out the event each year for hundreds of lucky attendees. Fans and critics haven't been the only people caught up in the spirit of a Dark Star show. The band has featured guest performances from six original Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Vince Welnick, Tom Constanten and even toured with longtime Dead soundman, Dan Healy. Other notable guests have included Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman of Phish, Keller Williams, Warren Haynes, Steve Kimock, Peter Rowan, Ramblin' Jack Elliot and many more. "For us it's a chance to recreate some of the magic that was created for us over the years," rhythm guitarist and vocalist Rob Eaton explains. "We offer a sort of a historical perspective at what it might have been like to go to a show in 1985, 1978 or whenever. Even for Deadheads who can say they've been to a hundred shows in the 90s, we offer something they never got to see live."

Matthew Logan Vasquez (of Delta Spirit) - Rough Trade NYC
May 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

2015 (The Year of The Ram) has been a year of major change for Matthew Logan Vasquez. He moved with his wife, Marthe, from Brooklyn to Austin, he saw the birth of his first child Thor, and after a decade since founding his critically acclaimed band, Delta Spirit, he's finally decided to go it alone FOR THE FIRST TIME, with his solo debut, The Austin EP, to be released November, 2015 , and a full length LP, Solicitor Returns, to shortly follow in early 2016. This sea- change is reflected on the EP's stunning psych-folk-rock opener, a ballsy 18-minute track (yes EIGHTEEN minutes) that conjures desert visions of Crazy Horse guitar solos, David Crosby's mustache, and all the good things about a journey through the past on mescaline. Matt actually grew up in Austin (and Dana Point, CA too) and the song is a slice of his life--an autobiography that isn't even close to being finished-- an epic American saga that reflects his skill as a remarkable modern songwriter still on the rise. If Richard Linklater could write a song, this would be it.

Marian Hill, Michl - Brooklyn Steel
May 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

Act One, the debut full-length from songwriting duo Marian Hill, was written and produced in its entirety by Jeremy Lloyd (music/lyrics/production) and Samantha Gongol (music/lyrics/vocals). The multi-talented duo, who have been collaborating in one form or another since high school, have shifted the classic paradigm of a woman on a stage and a man with a piano to a woman on a mic and a man with a laptop -- and the results are seductive and vivid. Tempting paradox with a blend of blues and bass, acoustic and digital, classic and modern, Marian Hill have arrived. Two years ago Sam and Jeremy wrote and recorded "Whisky" over spring break in Jeremy's parents' basement. When they released it for free on SoundCloud later that summer it was the only song they'd written for the project, and in a little over a year's time they had recorded their first EP in a bedroom, amassed millions of plays on various platforms, sold out shows across the country and featured in high profile commercials. They signed to Republic Records in early 2015, released the Sway EP, and settled in to write and record their debut album over the course of the following year with a plan to push their unique sound to its fullest potential.

Cry-Baby the Musical - The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre at CM Performing Arts Center
May 11, 2018 - Oakdale

Based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby features a delightfully demented book from the writers of Hairspray. It’s 1954, everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the • square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby’s moll. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

217 Boxes of Dr. Henry Anonymous - Baryshnikov Arts Center
Through May 11, 2018 - NEW YORK

New York: Dr. John Fyer is a seminal but little-known LGBT civil rights pioneer and is memorialized in the play 217 Boxes of Dr. Henry Anonymous written and directed by three-time Obie award-winning playwright Ain Gordon. . Initially set to run May 3 – 9, producers have added an additional two performance through May 11 to accommodate the demand at The Jerome Robbins Theater at the Baryshnikov Arts Center (450 West 37th Street). Tickets are $40 and can be purchased by visiting www.217boxes.com. More details to follow on partner organizations for upcoming nightly talkbacks. Before 1972, homosexuality was considered a mental illness in the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). Doctors prescribed a variety of reparative therapies including chemical castration, electric shock, mental institutionalization and lobotomies. The classification was used by government to justify statutes and regulations that marginalized homosexuals. Combing over the 217 boxes of notes and research left by psychiatrist Dr. John Fryer, 217 Boxes of Dr. Henry Anonymous is a compelling play about Fryer and his galvanizing testimony at the 1972 APA Annual Meeting which led to homosexuality’s removal from the DSM, considered one of the most significant moments in the history of the gay-rights movement. Because of the grave consequences that could befall an openly gay psychiatrist including loss of medical license, Fryer used a pseudonym, mask and voice modulator to address his colleagues.

The Brevet - Mercury Lounge
May 11, 2018 - New York

When the feedback-laden, distorted-as-all-hell guitar intro to The Brevet's new single, "Locked & Loaded," grinds to a crawl and lead singer Aric Chase Damm's gritty vocals kick in, there's a moment where—if you've got an ounce of soul in your body—your foot starts tapping almost involuntarily. The "woah-oh-oh" hook that hits next is the kind you feel in your bones, the eminently danceable kind that makes you want to shoot straight up, kick your chair back, and move. Every second "Locked & Loaded" begs for movement, an earworm that simply refuses to quit. And making the tune all the more impressive, in a testament to the group's raw creativity and artistic ability, is the fact that The Brevet engineered and produced the track at the group's recording space in Westminster, CA—where they'd also recorded their first two albums. As the lead single off the band's upcoming record, LEGS, "Locked & Loaded" performs a crucial task: Not only is it a representation of the band's new sound and of what fans can expect from the forthcoming album; it is an indication of how far the band has come since their previous release, American Novel—a groundbreaking, highly acclaimed LP, released in a series of chapters.

Trampled by Turtles, Hiss Golden Messenger - PlayStation Theater
May 11, 2018 - New York

Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who'd ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn't rely on amplification. Simonett hadn't played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who'd previously played drums in a speed metal act) and bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.

Children of a Lesser God - Studio 54
May 11, 2018 - New York

STOP ASSUMING. STOP JUDGING. START LISTENING. In 1980, Children of a Lesser God premiered on Broadway and asked: how can we truly communicate? Now, Tony Award®-winning director Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences) is laying this question bare in a breathtaking new revival of this landmark play starring Joshua Jackson ("The Affair"), Lauren Ridloff (Wonderstruck), and Anthony Edwards ("ER"). Jesse Green of The New York Times calls it "thrilling! Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational." Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, Children of a Lesser God tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there. As their relationship heats up, so does their desire to connect — igniting a thrilling exploration of passion, intimacy, and what we surrender when we fall in love.

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.

Based on the novel by Stephen King (The Shining, The Stand), "CARRIE" is the story of a young girl with telekinesis.

The Genesis Plays - 14 Street Y
May 11, 2018 - New york

Five Cities. Three Years. One Book. The Genesis Plays, inspired by five unique narratives in the book of Genesis, were devised between 2015-2017 in Minneapolis, Charleston, Austin, Seattle and Kansas City. The In[heir]itance Project is a theater company that uses a community-driven process of devising, education, and conversation to create original performance events inspired by sacred stories in conversation with a community's own history, narratives, and people.THE ABRAHAM PLAY (Minneapolis/St Paul) Hoping for a quick windfall of inheritance, Abe, a Wall Street stock jock, returns to the office of his recently deceased, estranged father searching for a lost deed. Among the piles of papers strewn about the office he doesn't find the deed. Instead he finds a scavenger hunt his father has left behind for him - and the audience holds the clues. THE REBECCA PLAY (Charleston) The matriarch Rebecca played favorites among her sons, Esau and Jacob, believing one to be the rightful heir. This play marries that narrative to the story of the city of Charleston. The city becomes a mother playing favorites among her children, White and Black. Through a series of scenes and monologues, two actors explore rivalry, racism and how each brother reacts when the roles are reversed. THE JACOB PLAY (Austin) A play that, quite literally, asks Jacob to wrestle with his role as brother, husband, and man of God. The Jacob Play introduces a tag team tussle between Jacob & Rebecca vs Esau and Isaac, a Battle Royale of Leah vs. Rachel vs. Jacob vs. Laban, and finally, the MAIN EVENT: Jacob vs. The Angel of the Lord. Get ready for a hard-hitting, smackdown, knockout wrestling extravaganza - it's the event of the millennium! THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY (Seattle) A historian unearths an ancient papyrus about sisterhood and struggles with what it means for a man to have made this discovery that reveals so much about female identity. And as a new father to twin baby girls, he's looking for advice anywhere he can get it. Created in collaboration with Emmy-award winning filmmaker Ilana Trachtman (Praying with Lior). THE SARAH PLAY (Kansas City) Three actors struggle with how to tell the ancient, sacred story of Sarah and Hagar, the mothers of Isaac and Ishmael, through a modern lens. Drawing from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions, and trying various iterations to determine which religion's version of the narrative gets told, the actors wrestle with how to tell a tale when there are multiple accounts of what happened.

Rosé All Day - Monarch Rooftop Lounge
May 11, 2018 - New York

Opening Reception for Sophia Narrett: Through the Door or Window - BRIC
May 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

Sophia Narrett uses embroidery to tell stories about love and desire. Her work explores love as a transformative experience that has the ability to bring purpose, initiate self-discovery, alleviate pain, and offer joy, as well as its potential to bring heartbreak, miscommunication, and manipulation. Each piece begins as a narrative premise shaped by Narrett's experiences or thoughts. She then gathers source images from the Internet, screenshots from movies and TV, and photos she collects, to build complex digital collages that she bases her embroideries on. In this way she uses the language of pop culture and social media to express her own desires and fears, and the deep sense of conflict we are faced with as we try to navigate love and the evolving nature of identity against treacherous media portrayals of what we should be and want.

Tanya Tagaq - (Le) Poisson Rouge
May 11, 2018 - New York

Celebrated Inuk performer Tanya Tagaq employs exquisite, unnerving vocal improvisations that bridge traditional roots with contemporary culture. The Inuit are a group of culturally similar indigenous peoples inhabiting several Arctic regions. Tanya's heritage is never far from her mind, but instead of making her music nostalgic or folky, it has a political edge - growing up in a majority Inuit area, Tanya saw the effects of Canadian attempts to systematically dismantle Inuit culture. She learned the traditional practice of throat singing, amplifying it well beyond the indigenous communities from where it originated. Although she learned this in part as an act of love, because it has roots in her spiritual and ancestral heritage, she also did so as an act of resistance, reclaiming part of a culture that the government sought to eradicate. "She taps into humanity's most naked emotions and forces them into the spotlight... the best musical performance any of us had ever seen." – Vice Music This concert is part of World Music Institute's Counterpoint Series.

MARSHALL CRENSHAW With Pagano and Maby - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
May 11, 2018 - Bay Shore

"One of the fundamental things about the project was that I set out to not make an album," Marshall Crenshaw notes. "So I did this project, and now at the end of it, there's this album, for the album fans!…."The celebrated singer-songwriter-guitarist-producer is discussing #392: The EP Collection, his new CD on the Red River Entertainment label. The 14-track set collects a dozen standout tracks drawn from the innovative series of six 10" vinyl EPs that Crenshaw released between 2013 and 2015, plus a pair of never-before-heard rarities chosen especially for this collection. The EP series was the product of Crenshaw's decision to break away from the standard album/tour cycle by recording and releasing a steady stream of new music over an extended period. The endeavor proved wildly popular with his fans, and brought in lots of "I really did love the EP project, and I'm kind of sad that it's over," Crenshaw comments."I was looking for a different way of working that would keep me motivated; it was cool,because it had a sense of urgency; there was always something that had just come outand always something that was on the way. It was an inspiring way to work."

Dan Bern Naked Soul - Rubin Museum of Art
May 11, 2018 - New York

A remarkably prolific songwriter, Dan Bern has released around two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first acclaimed Sony-distributed album in 1997. Either fronting the prodigiously talented band Common Rotation or as a solo performer, he is comfortable and convincing, funny and topical, with an unassuming tip of the hat to Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan, all while sounding thoroughly original and contemporary. Whether writing about stepping back and appreciating the world around us ("Breathe") or celebrating the venerable voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers ("The Golden Voice of Vin Scully"), Dan's songs are always literary, sometimes funny, and often cinematic. And it's not uncommon at a Dan Bern concert to see and hear fans unabashedly singing along to one song after another with no prompting from the stage.

Chris still lives in Brooklyn NY with his Mom (punch line). Chris has a Bachelors degree in Psychology to impress his mom's friends and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy to impress his Moms friend's Moms. That kind of thinking got him on the SNY network as the host of the 2010 Fencing Masters at Hammerstein Ballroom. It also got him all the way to the Final 4 of the 2011 March Madness Comedy Competition at the world famous Caroline's on Broadway. Chris also headlined at Caroline's this month and recently opened for Gilbert Gottfried & Dustin Diamond. When he's not making witty remarks (like the ones you've just read) or transforming into various personas on stage you can find him stretching people's hamstrings and getting yelled at to clean his room.

Rick Derringer and Pat Travers Band - The Space At Westbury
May 11, 2018 - Westbury

Artist Bio Young entertainer Rick Derringer was just 17 when his band The McCoys TM recorded the No.1 hit "Hang On Sloopy" in the summer of 1965, knocking "Yesterday" by The Beatles out of the top spot. The McCoys had enjoyed four years of successful touring, when Rick merged his talents with Johnny Winter in 1969 forming Johnny Winter And (And referring to the McCoys). Rick was the only producer of all gold and platinum Winter Brothers recordings. In '71 Rick was featured on three records, "Johnny Winter And", "Johnny Winter And-Live" and "Edgar Winter's White Trash". "And" featured the first version of Derringer's "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" which was also released as a single, then selected again for "And - Live." Eventually, the busy Derringer joined Edgar Winter's White Trash full-time and produced the gold LP, "Roadwork." Derringer's solo album, All American Boy was released in '73 with the now already popular "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo" this time as a 'hit' single. Rick was writer/producer of the Still Alive And Well album and player/producer of the hit album, They Only Come Out At Night. The latter featured the No. 1, Grammy nominated monster hit, "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride." In 1976 Rick created the Derringer. He released four albums and in '83 returned to his solo career with the LP, Good Dirty Fun. Throughout the '70s and '80s the popular Derringer appeared on numerous albums with artists Alice Cooper, Richie Havens, Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan. The list also includes Cyndi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, Kiss, Mason Ruffner and Madam X. In the mid-80s, Derringer discovered Weird Al Yankovic, producing music for Grammy-winning albums and videos. Derringer's productions of the Michael Jackson parodies, the No. 1 hit "Eat It", and "Who's Fat", have been Yankovic's most successful recordings. In the '90s, Rick was selected to be producer/writer/performer of the World Wrestling Federation LP Hulk Hogan's theme song, "I Am A Real American" was written and performed by Rick as a part of these projects. Derringer was once again sought after by Edgar Winter and in 1990, performed for the LP, Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer Live in Japan. Then in 1999 Rick and Edgar were back together again for their collaboration on his Winter Blues CD. Rick also recorded four blues CD's starting in '93 with Back to the Blues followed by Electra Blues, Blues Deluxe and his 2000 release Jackhammer Blues. At about that same period Derringer, who seems to be constantly in motion, released his destined-to-be-classic Tend the Fire in Europe to rave reviews and was eagerly expected and welcomed by his loyal fans here in the US. The year 2001 was another busy one for Rick. His venture back into Rock & Roll with Vanilla Fudge superstars Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert produced a recording of intense synergy - DBA (for Derringer, Bogert & Appice) with vocals, writing and instrumentals shared by all three. 2004 promised a reprise for Derringer and Appice, with the release of D-N-A. After DBA the next project was truly a work from the heart and soul of Rick and his wife Brenda Jean (Jenda Hall). Entitled Aiming 4 Heaven, it brought forth their devotion to God and put it into song with help from their children, Lory & Martin. That project opened the doors for a worldwide release on Reborn Records. We can't forget the Winter of 2002, where Rick ventured into a whole new musical world - Smooth Jazz. Interest in Rick Derringer - Free Ride grew quickly at radio, and the second single "Hot And Cool" (in the 'Radio and Records' top 20 for 5 months, and number 42 for the year) showed Derringer right at home in the format. It might come as a surprise, but as he explains, it's the kind of music he's been waiting to do his whole life. His wife Brenda is featured as co-writer on three songs, and arranger/singer on the title cut. In 2007, Rick released Rockin' America, featuring the patriotic song Real American, which has been used by The President, during political campaigns, and on the hit FX series, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia". In 2009, Rick released yet another display of blues talent on Knighted by the Blues, again featuring wife Jenda as co-writer on several songs. In 2010, Rick released an amazing compilation of Freddie, Albert and B.B. King on The Three Kings of the Blues. And finally, the year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Rick Derringer's All American Boy debut solo album and his long journey of successes as producer, songwriter, and player throughout the years. It seems like almost too much story to take in at one sitting, but the most surprising part is...... after more than four decades he's still going strong!

The Myth of Progress: Our Most Violent Fantasy - Strand Book Store
May 11, 2018 - Union Square

In recent years, some conservative and neoliberal academics have touted the idea that human societies are evolving toward a less violent state. Progress, such scholars claim, is an inherent quality of our species, and history moves in one direction. But what if the notion of progress itself is, in fact our most enduring fuel for violence? Let us look closely at the myth of historical progress and ask ourselves just how we came to believe that the past exists in service to the future.

Colloquium: The Truth That I Owe You: Understanding The Social Contexts Of Race/gender In Education - University at Buffalo
May 11, 2018 - New York

David Kirkland — associate professor of English and urban education, NYU Steinhardt School of Education — presents "The Truth That I Owe You: Understanding the Social Contexts of Race and Gender in Education" as part of the Graduate School of Education's 2018 Colloquium Series. Lecture: 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Reception: 4:30 to 5 p.m. Abstract: This presentation is based on over a decade of research aimed at understanding the complexities of teaching and learning in urban settings. The goal of the presentation is to raise awareness of the effects of educational injustices in the lives of urban youth, primarily youth of color, in order to interrupt cycles of miseducation. Focusing on the (mis)education of Black males, the presentation addresses the following questions: How do cycles of inequity (i.e., racial injustice) influence how, why, and what youth of color learn (and do not/refuse to learn)? How might critical educators disrupt such cycles to empower urban youth to transform their own communities, lives, educational destinies, etc.? In addressing these questions, the presentation aims to examine, perhaps more holistically, the peculiar deficit politics of education, exploring instead the power of the spoken and written word, as it constructs and deconstructs opportunities for learning and liberation. In closing, the presentation will suggest that, from a liberatory perspective, urban youth take on new meanings beginning with a voice and a verb, where youth—when affirm, valued, and respected — have the power to tranDavid Kirkland — associate professor of English and urban education, NYU Steinhardt School of Education — presents "The Truth That I Owe You: Understanding the Social Contexts of Race and Gender in Education" as part of the Graduate School of Education's 2018 Colloquium Series.

In closing, the presentation will suggest that, from a liberatory perspective, urban youth take on new meanings beginning with a voice and a verb, where youth—when affirm, valued, and respected — have the power to transform the world inside-out.

INDIA was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico and grew up in the La Candela section of the South Bronx listening to recordings of Celia Cruz and Ella Fitzgerald. She made her professional debut singing with the popular dance music group TKA. While still a teenager, she recorded her first single “Dancing on the Fire” with its Spanish language version “Bailando En El Fuego” with mega producer “Jellybean” Benitez and “Lover that Rocks” which made it into the top 5 dance singles chart. With producer “Little” Louie Vega, she recorded now classic hits “I Can’t Get No Sleep”, “When You Touch Me”, and “To Be In Love” and reached #1 on the Billboard Dance charts with “Love and Happiness.” In 1992, Eddie Palmieri came to the studio to hear her for himself. When they recorded the amazingly popular Llegó La India via Eddie Palmieri, “La Princesa de la Salsa” had arrived in the world of Latin music. In 1994 she released her record-breaking quadruple platinum album Dicen Que Soy, which included the explosive duet with Marc Anthony, “Vivir lo Nuestro”. This phenomenal album also contained the hits "Nunca Voy a Olvidarte", “Que Ganas de No Verte Mas”, "Ese Hombre", “O Ella o Yo” and the title track “Dicen Que Soy”. In 1996, India was spotlighted throughout Tito Puente’s salsa flavored hit album with the Count Basie Orchestra, Tito Puente/India Jazzin’ with The Count Basie Orchestra, which resulted in five GRAMMY nominations. India’s Sobre el Fuego (1996), the first of two albums produced by Isidro Infante, and featured collaborations with Celia Cruz and Johnny Rivera, topped the Tropical/Salsa chart with the hits “Me Canse de Ser la Otra”, "Mi Mayor Venganza" and “Costumbres“. The second, Sola, her highly acclaimed tribute to the late Cuban diva La Lupe, was honored with the 2000 Latin Billboard award for Best Tropical/Salsa Album of the Year. This was followed by a string of number 1 singles on the Billboard Tropical chart: "Seduceme" and "Traicion" (both from her 2002 album Latin Songbird: Mi Alma y Corazón) and "Ya No Queda Nada" (2005). In 2006, India was honored in her hometown of the Bronx by having a street named after her (across from the County Courthouse). The following year, she won the 2007 Latin Billboard Awards for the Best Female Tropical Album of the Year for her salsatón inflected Soy Diferente and Latin Dance Club Play Track of the Year for “Solamente una Noche.” In 2010 she released her ninth studio album, Unica, and her single “Estúpida,” hit #1 on the tropical Billboard charts. In 2011, she released “Tacalacateo” as a collaboration with DJ Peppe Citarella which peaked at #13 on the Billboard dance chart. India was a guest artist on arranger Tony Succar’s 2012 production UNITY: The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson and in 2014 she joined Ismael Miranda and the Salsa Giants to record “Bajo la Tormento”. Her latest release, 2015’s magnificent tribute album to the great Mexican ranchera vocalist Juan Gabriel, Intensamente Con Canciones de Juan Gabriel jumped immediately to the number 1 spot on the Billboard Tropical Albums chart and when her latest single from the album “Ahora Que te Vas” became a #1 hit, India made history becoming the female singer with the most #1 singles in the Billboard Tropical Songs Charts. In 2016, India was honored with the Latin Grammy Award for Best Salsa Album for Intensamente Con Canciones de Juan Gabriel. MICHAEL STUART is a vocalist of Puerto Rican descent that was born and raised in New York City. From a young age he was influenced by his uncle Israel “Timbalero” Stuart, a professional musician and bandleader, whom he would accompany to rehearsals where as a child he would sing and play the maracas or congas. A self-taught trumpet player, he also enjoyed singing the tunes of Héctor Lavoe, El Gran Combo and Domingo Quiñones, who influenced his singing style. He started his professional career singing coro for Wichy Camacho, Marc Anthony, and Johnny Rivera. Recording his first album in 1966, Cuento de la Vecindad that featured the hit “Te Amo”, he was nominated for the 1997 Lo Nuestro New Artist of the Year Award, and won both the Tu Musica Tropical New Artist 1997 Award and the Farandula Magazine New Artist of 1996-97 Award. After releasing his second CD, Retratos, in 1998, that included his hit song “Niña Bella”, he was honored with the Paoli Award and Tu Musica Peoples’ Choice Award. Stuart regularly tours and releases new material, including his Latin Grammy and Billboard Award nominated 2005 Latin Pop Album Sin Miedo and his most recent release 2011’s Tributo a Louie Ramirez (Amanece y Sigue Caliente).

Sum 41, Seaway - Terminal 5
May 12, 2018 - New York

Multiplatinum rock outfit Sum 41 wrapped its final tour supporting 2011's Screaming Bloody Murder in April 2013. It was one of the band's longest and most attended touring cycles in its 20 year career, and they found themselves nominated for a Grammy for the first time ever. However things were not as perfect as they seemed, as vocalist, guitarist, and producer Deryck Whibley found himself on the brink of destruction. "I can't pin-point one exact moment that put me over the edge, it was more of an accumulation of many things when I slipped into a fog of partying and booze. I tried to detach myself from any and all responsibility whatsoever," Whibley reflects. He spent the next year doing just that, and at the end found himself in a Los Angeles hospital fighting for his life. Whibley spent most of April and May 2014 in and out of the ICU with his mother and fiancée by his side. When he was finally released as an outpatient he realized that his journey was just beginning, and it was then that he began to write while simultaneously going through intense physical therapy. "Being sober and out of the fog made me realize that the only things I really cared about were music, making a record, and getting better so I could get back on stage again." The music came together in tandem with Whibley's health; he recalls: "Due to neuropathy, muscle atrophy and medication that caused permanent nerve damage in my legs and feet left me unable to walk and in excruciating pain for months. I had to learn how to do everything again—my motor skills, learning how to play guitar.

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - Rough Trade NYC
May 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

In early 2016, the release of Talk Tight put Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever on the map with glowing reviews from SPIN, Stereogum, and Pitchfork, praising them as stand-outs even among the fertile landcape of Melbourne music. Chock full of snappy riffs, spritely drumming and quick- witted wordplay, Talk Tight was praised "for the precision of their melodies, the streamlined sophistication of their arrangements, and the undercurrent of melancholy that motivates every note." (Pitchfork) Born from late night jam sessions in singer/guitarist Fran Keaney's bedroom and honed in the thrumming confines of Melbourne's live music venues, the band began to take shape as audiences got moving. Sharing tastes and songwriting duties, cousins Joe White and Fran Keaney, brothers Tom and Joe Russo, and drummer Marcel Tussie started out with softer, melody-focused songs. The more shows they played, the more those driving rhythms that now trademark their songs emerged. Since then, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever rode that wave from strength to strength. Touring around the country on headline bills and festival slots all the way to BIGSOUND, they entrenched themselves with their thrilling live shows. Meanwhile, they were prepping their next release. The French Press EP levels up on everything that made Talk Tight such an immediate draw. Multi- tracked melodies which curl around one another, charging drums and addictive bass lines converge to give each track its driving momentum. Honed through their live shows, this relentless energy carries the record through new chapters in the band's Australian storybook.

The New Mastersounds: John Papa Gros - Brooklyn Bowl
Through May 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

The New Mastersounds formed in Leeds UK in 1999 and cut their teeth as the resident live band at a hip dance club, playing every Friday and Saturday night for nearly two years. A rough 8-track recording of an early rehearsal got into the hands of some London DJs, and was released soon after on two limited-edition 7" singles. Invitations to play club gigs in London soon followed, and before long the band had established a reputation around UK and Europe as forerunners of the deep funk revival scene. Fast-forward to 2004: having experimented with various line-ups and recorded 2 albums, the original 4-piece band was invited to Chicago to open for the Greyboy All Stars at the House of Blues. This gig kicked off a prolific live career in USA which continues to the present day, backed up by more studio records, live albums, a remix album and 2 compilations. Their quirky, catchy instrumental ditties have been used on TV and film soundtracks, and the band is the subject of an award-winning feature-length documentary: "Coals to Newcastle: The New Mastersounds – from Leeds to New Orleans".

Celebrate the First-Ever National Dog Mom’s Day on Saturday May 12th in NYC! - d.b.a.
May 12, 2018 - New York

Dog moms are finally getting the recognition they deserve with their own national holiday celebrating women and their dogs! Pet lovers in the New York City area are encouraged to come out to celebrate the first-ever National Dog Mom's Day on Saturday, May 12th at d.b.a bar in the East Village. There will be free drinks, rescue groups with adoptable pups and dog friendly businesses with treats to spoil dog moms and their four-legged companions. Dog moms have been asking for a Dog Mom's Day with this Change.org petition (http://bit.ly/DogMomsDay) spearheaded by Dig – The Dog Person's Dating App, on social media, and on dog blogs for years. The creation of this separate day will emphasize the respect for all moms and their right to showcase the love of their kids – fur or not. Thanks to everyone who signed and shared the petition, Dog Mom’s Day will officially be listed on the National Day Calendar within the next couple of weeks! Dig created this day to celebrate and thank the dog moms who dedicate their love and support every day to their dogs. It's a different, special and visceral love that deserves its own day to be recognized and appreciated. Every year, dog moms are reprimanded for celebrating their motherhood on Mother's Day. Dog Mom's Day will be a day truly dedicated to the dog moms, foster dog moms, and future dog moms.

But we don’t care because our hearts are so full of love for these fur-kids!" – Quote from hilarioushound.com/happy-dog-moms-day Look for information about Dog Dad's Day coming up Saturday, June 16!

Spectrum - Dixon Place
May 12, 2018 - New York

Growing up in Queens, New York with parents who were both inner city school teachers, Tricia Alexandro saw firsthand the lack of resources, the resilience, and the despair of people who were born with the odds stacked against them. Her dad rewarded five well-behaved students every Friday with dinner at the Alexandro family home. It was through these dinners that she first heard the stories that would shape her view of disparity and disadvantage. Later, through her experiences as a personal trainer in Manhattan to the city's ultra wealthy population, she would witness the other side of the spectrum—connections, prejudice and privilege. This is her attempt to reconcile and give voice to these many points of view.

Dark Star Orchestra - The Capitol Theatre
May 12, 2018 - Port Chester

Performing to critical acclaim celebrating their 20th anniversary year in 2017 and over 2600 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead's extensive catalog and the talent of these seven fine musicians. On any given night, the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead's 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra's members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations. Dark Star Orchestra offers much more than the sound of the Grateful Dead, they truly encapsulate the energy and the experience. It's about a sense of familiarity. It's about a feeling that grabs listeners and takes over. It's about that contagious energy... in short, it's about the complete experience and consistent quality show that the fan receives when attending a Dark Star Orchestra show. Dark Star Orchestra has performed throughout the entire United States, plus Europe & the Caribbean touching down in seven different countries. DSO continues to grow its fan base by playing at larger venues for two and even three night stands as well as performing at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, Milwaukee's SummerFest, The Peach Music Festival, All Good Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, and many more. In addition to appearing at some of the nation's top festival, Dark Star Orchestra hosts its own annual music festival and campaign gathering, titled the 'Dark Star Jubilee', currently in its sixth year where DSO headline all three nights and are joined by a mix of established and up and coming national touring acts. Beyond the shores of the United States, DSO has taken its internationally-acclaimed Grateful Dead tribute to the beaches of Jamaica in the dead of winter for the past five years, with their event appropriately titled 'Jam in the Sand'. Featuring an ocean-side stage, DSO sets up camp to perform shows for four nights along the tropical sands of an all-inclusive resort, selling out the event each year for hundreds of lucky attendees. Fans and critics haven't been the only people caught up in the spirit of a Dark Star show. The band has featured guest performances from six original Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Vince Welnick, Tom Constanten and even toured with longtime Dead soundman, Dan Healy. Other notable guests have included Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman of Phish, Keller Williams, Warren Haynes, Steve Kimock, Peter Rowan, Ramblin' Jack Elliot and many more. "For us it's a chance to recreate some of the magic that was created for us over the years," rhythm guitarist and vocalist Rob Eaton explains. "We offer a sort of a historical perspective at what it might have been like to go to a show in 1985, 1978 or whenever. Even for Deadheads who can say they've been to a hundred shows in the 90s, we offer something they never got to see live."

Lincoln Durham The Ghost Wolves - The Bowery Electric
May 12, 2018 - New York

"Armed with old bastardized mid-century guitars, hand-me-down fiddles and banjos, home-made contraptions with just enough tension on a string to be considered an instrument and any random percussive item he can get his hands or feet on, Lincoln Durham is a Southern-Gothic Psycho-Blues Revival-Punk One-Man-Band with a heavy amped edge, preaching the gospel of some new kind of depraved music. With driving guttural beats backboning various growling stringed instruments Lincoln gives birth to a sound that transcends genres with his dark, poetic and raw writing style telling tales that E.A. Poe would have been proud of. Lincoln's musical odyssey began when his grandpa, Charlie, and dad, Ed, put a fiddle in his hands at age 4. He would grow into an accomplished fiddle player winning the Youth Fiddle Championship at age 10. Lincoln afterward followed the path so many musicians have, finding his vice in the seductive, siren-like callings of the electric guitar. Or, in Lincoln's case, the acoustic slide guitar with gnarly pickups haphazardly screwed into it.

Cry-Baby the Musical - The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre at CM Performing Arts Center
May 12, 2018 - Oakdale

Based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby features a delightfully demented book from the writers of Hairspray. It’s 1954, everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the • square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby’s moll. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral meritocracy of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents, who are ultimately arrested for arson, sending the drapes all off to prison. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

Ceg Presents Percy Hill - 20th Anniversary of 'Color in Bloom' - Gramercy Theatre
May 12, 2018 - New York

Show Info: CEG Presents is happy to present the reunion of Percy Hill for their 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed album, Color In Bloom with a live performance of the album in its entirety, plus other Percy Hill favorites. CEG used to book Percy Hill at various New York City venues more than twenty years ago. Percy Hill will perform at Gramercy Theatre on Saturday, May 12, 2018, joined by special guests Moon Boot Lover (featuring Peter Prince), a band who has earned accolades in their own right amongst the funk and jamband music scene. Percy Hill is one of the most beloved jam bands which formed in the 1990s. Formed in New Hampshire by Joe Farrell and Nate Wilson, the band went from New England's best kept secret to legendary jamband following the recording of their 1998 album Color in Bloom, one of the best studio albums from any jamband in history. The critically acclaimed release won a Jammy Award for best studio album in 2000, and earned the band high praise from publications like the Village Voice and Entertainment Weekly. Aaron Katz and John Leccese's addition to the Color In Bloom lineup is what has added to their notoriety amongst fans today.This album set the band apart for what succinct improvisational rock should sound like. Percy Hill's music has drawn favorable comparisons to Paul Simon, Steely Dan; and their live shows have earned them a spot beside the very best of the improvisational rock bands of the 90's and early 2000's (Phish, Widespread Panic, Disco Biscuits, moe., String Cheese Incident). The success of Color in Bloom grew the band's popularity, leading to sold out shows and marquee festival slots from coast to coast. With just a handful of live performances over the past several years, the entire band will reunite to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this classic album on May 12. "Even at live shows and within the Color In Bloom tracks that we play on stage, we'll go places we wouldn't normally go musically and wouldn't be heard on the record," says John Leccese. Doors: 7pm / Show: 8pm* *Showtime is subject to change Age Restriction: All Ages Just a few blocks from Madison Square Park, Gramercy Theatre's intimate live experience remains unmatched by any other Manhattan venue.

And, when they do, look out, you'll find yourself not only laughing out loud but emerging with new perspectives on race and ethnicity and the wonderful diversity of American culture.

Freaknik - The Creek and The Cave
May 12, 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.

"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.

"What are you? Mixed."

In this highly personal evening, he explores the delicate balancing act of talking about who - and what - he is. Painting a musical self-portrait in an evening of original compositions, Heath explores and celebrates his conflicting identities and how they interact with each other. Don't miss this one-night-only premiere from a singular artist admired by The New York Times as a writer, composer and performer who "walks off with your heart."

Workshop with Sharon Salzberg, Mark Epstein and Robert Thurman - Tibet House US
Through May 12, 2018 - New York

Trauma happens to everyone. The potential for it is part and parcel of the precariousness of human existence. Some traumas--loss, death, accidents, disease or abuse---are sudden and explicit; others—like lack of attunement between children and their parents—are more ongoing and subtle. But it is hard to imagine the scope of an individual life without envisioning some kind of trauma: big or little. Everyone has to deal with it some time or other and anxiety, addiction, and depression are natural reactions. Despite this fact, many people are reluctant to acknowledge their inner struggles. They shy away from facing them, in the hope that this will make them more normal. Carrying on as if their underlying feelings of disease are shameful, they stay more on the surface of themselves than need be. The Buddha, one of the world's first great psychologists, saw this tendency toward disavowal as a problem.

Phony Ppl - Blue Note Late Night Residency Vol. 2 - Blue Note Jazz Club
May 12, 2018 - New York

Phony Ppl either crash-landed from the past or the future: critics and fans can't decide. Since throwing warehouse shows around New York in 2011, the five Brooklyn natives have tossed together vintage astral funk, soulful complex R&B, and dusted-out hip-hop which evokes a newfound genre-less form of music originating in the basement of a Bedford-Stuyvesant home studio where the band begin making music together in high school. Co-founded by lead vocalist Elbee Thrie and keyboardist Aja Grant, whose brother Bari is the bassist, the band self-released hits like "Why iii Love the Moon" which is featured in EA Sports' NBA Live 16 and "End of the Night," and was praised by none other than Tyler the Creator as one of his favorite songs of 2016. The dynamic quintet also features Elijah Rawk on guitar and drummer Matthew Byas. Together they have been direct support on tours with like-minded experimental performers Theophilus London, Erykah Badu and The Roots. Their most recent effort, 2015's "Yesterday's Tomorrow" gained rotation on BBC1 and Odd Future Radio, and the L.A. Times applauded it's "meteoric rise" via social media, with the album peaking at #6 on the iTunes R&B chart. The band is releasing a new, and as of now untitled, follow up LP in 2018.

The Genesis Plays - 14 Street Y
May 12, 2018 - New york

Five Cities. Three Years. One Book. The Genesis Plays, inspired by five unique narratives in the book of Genesis, were devised between 2015-2017 in Minneapolis, Charleston, Austin, Seattle and Kansas City. The In[heir]itance Project is a theater company that uses a community-driven process of devising, education, and conversation to create original performance events inspired by sacred stories in conversation with a community's own history, narratives, and people.THE ABRAHAM PLAY (Minneapolis/St Paul) Hoping for a quick windfall of inheritance, Abe, a Wall Street stock jock, returns to the office of his recently deceased, estranged father searching for a lost deed. Among the piles of papers strewn about the office he doesn't find the deed. Instead he finds a scavenger hunt his father has left behind for him - and the audience holds the clues. THE REBECCA PLAY (Charleston) The matriarch Rebecca played favorites among her sons, Esau and Jacob, believing one to be the rightful heir. This play marries that narrative to the story of the city of Charleston. The city becomes a mother playing favorites among her children, White and Black. Through a series of scenes and monologues, two actors explore rivalry, racism and how each brother reacts when the roles are reversed. THE JACOB PLAY (Austin) A play that, quite literally, asks Jacob to wrestle with his role as brother, husband, and man of God. The Jacob Play introduces a tag team tussle between Jacob & Rebecca vs Esau and Isaac, a Battle Royale of Leah vs. Rachel vs. Jacob vs. Laban, and finally, the MAIN EVENT: Jacob vs. The Angel of the Lord. Get ready for a hard-hitting, smackdown, knockout wrestling extravaganza - it's the event of the millennium! THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY (Seattle) A historian unearths an ancient papyrus about sisterhood and struggles with what it means for a man to have made this discovery that reveals so much about female identity. And as a new father to twin baby girls, he's looking for advice anywhere he can get it. Created in collaboration with Emmy-award winning filmmaker Ilana Trachtman (Praying with Lior). THE SARAH PLAY (Kansas City) Three actors struggle with how to tell the ancient, sacred story of Sarah and Hagar, the mothers of Isaac and Ishmael, through a modern lens. Drawing from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions, and trying various iterations to determine which religion's version of the narrative gets told, the actors wrestle with how to tell a tale when there are multiple accounts of what happened.

A true original, the Bakersfield, CA singer, songwriter, composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist indelibly impacts millions as frontman for alt-metal/rock game-changers Korn—whose accolades encompass two GRAMMY® Award wins, worldwide sales of 40 million-plus, and countless sold out shows in nearly every corner of the globe. Throughout over 20 years in music, his presence coursed through the film scores, contributions to popular video game franchises, and official remixes for the likes of Steve Aoki and more. Along the way, he lent his voice to tracks for everyone from Linkin Park to Tech N9ne. However, 2018 sees him doing something he has yet to do: release his first solo album. Writing and recording on the road, he played guitar, keys, and anything else he could get his hands on. Moreover, the music was primarily record live. Led by the single "What It Is," it continues a tradition by boldly treading new territory. "I've always got to be different," he leaves off. "Once again, I'm doing something I haven't heard before. This is my swan song. It's my fucking masterpiece up to this point."– Rick Florino, January 2018

Back 2 Back: Floyd Cooper & Jackie Azua Kramer - Books Are Magic
May 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators presents Back 2 Back, a series celebrating veterans and new comers in the industry. This month we welcome Floyd Cooper and Jackie Azua Kramer! Floyd Cooper received a Coretta Scott King Award for his illustrations in The Blacker the Berry and a Coretta Scott King Honor for Brown Honey in Broomwheat Tea and I Have Heard of a Land. Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mr. Cooper received a degree in fine arts from the University of Oklahoma and, after graduating, worked as an artist for a major greeting card company. In 1984, he came to New York City to pursue a career as an illustrator of books, and he now lives in Easton, Pennsylvania, with his wife and children. Jackie Azúa Kramer was born in Manhattan, New York. Many lives ago Jackie was an actor, singer, and school counselor. Her work with children presented her with an opportunity to address their concerns, secrets, and hopes through storytelling. Many of Jackie's best ideas happen in a bathtub full of bubbles. Jackie and her family live happily in Long Island, New York.

NO EVIL 2.0 - Phelps, Roth and Thompson - The Duplex Cabaret Theatre
May 12, 2018 - New York

No Evil 2.0 is the cabaret creation of Jerry Phelps (Mama's Next Big Act, Runner Up), Elliot Roth (Brandy's Piano Bar) and Karen Thompson. In an attempt to respond to the unashamed hate, bigotry and ignorance fully unleashed in November 2016, these three musicians will use their love of soul, folk, a well-placed Broadway tune, and the Judds to let music speak where words cannot. Starting with the realization that American music has always been connected to the resilience and resistance of people of color, LGBT and Jewish folks in the cultural fabric of America, this trio is using music to witness and to let the light come in. No Evil is an unblinking look at the brokenness that leads to oppression and also a deep a celebration of survival, resistance and joy. $15 Ticket in Advance & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre* $20 Ticket at the Door (plus service fee) & a 2 Drink Minimum in the Cabaret Theatre* *Drinks Must be purchased In the Cabaret Theatre to count towards the Minimum.

May 12, 2018 - Pawling

Boston's Jesse Dee is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing soul man—a modern day trailblazer inspired by the old school. Dee's passion is exploring and updating soul music for contemporary audiences. With his warm and honest sound, his instantly memorable melodies and positive, slice-of-life lyrics (evoking the heyday of the Brill Building songwriters), he accomplishes just that. His inventive, hook-filled songs are delivered with buoyant, youthful exuberance. Live, he always brings down the house, and keeps his ever-growing fan base coming back for more.

MARSHALL CRENSHAW (w/ Pagano and Maby) - Daryl's House Club
May 12, 2018 - Pawling

Born in 1953 in Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Crenshaw learned to tune a guitar correctly at age ten and has been trying ever since. His first big break came in 1978 playing John Lennon in "Beatlemania", first as an understudy in New York, then in the West Coast company followed by a national touring company. Removing himself from that situation in Feb. 1980, Marshall settled in New York City. After crossing paths with the great and legendary Alan Betrock, Marshall recorded his debut single "Something's Gonna Happen" (for Betrock's Shake Records label), which led to a deal with Warner Bros. His debut album, Marshall Crenshaw, was acclaimed as a masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a singular songwriter, record maker, and guitarist. The album spawned the hit single "Someday, Someway," and other classics such as "(You're My) Favorite Waste of Time," "Whenever You're On My Mind" and "Cynical Girl."

In Between: Poem and Flash Fiction with Barbara Henning - Poets House
May 12, 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.

Fu Manchu - The Bowery Ballroom
May 12, 2018 - New York

Originally formed in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced hardcore punk band called Virulence, FU MANCHU has since become one of hard rock's most celebrated names. The band released its first single "Kept Between Trees" in 1990 and in the years following, helped give rise to a celebrated style of heavy music tagged "stoner rock" alongside peers such as Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Sleep. Since its inception, the quartet has built itself a fanatical army of loyal enthusiasts all drawn to the group's ridiculously catchy, unpretentious music, guitar-driven sound and carefree lyrics centered on "old muscle cars, choppers, vans, skateboarding and science fiction." Over their career, the band has released 11 albums and has performed to sold out audiences all over the world. "a transcendent distillation of Seventies rock heaviness and Eighties punk aggression…what Black Sabbath would sound like with suntans and a fleet of dune buggies at their disposal…the ultimate desert-rock " - ROLLING STONE "stoner-rock icons… unyielding, heavy-rock" - SPIN "melodic smoke-soaked bluesy-metal" - THE NEW YORK TIMES "Invoking the legendary thunder of Blue Cheer as well as the clanging cowbell boogie of Mountain, this quartet creates a near-perfect facsimile of circa-'71 heavy rock.

Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

ORDER MY STEPS curated by Amelia Brod and Ryan Frank - Brooklyn Studios for Dance
Through May 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

Order My Steps is an exhibition that explores the intersection of sculpture and movement. The project features work by ten artists who order our steps through installation, sculpture, sound, photography, text, and drawing. Their work considers movement while also exploring themes of tension, environment, perception, and communication. The site-responsive exhibition takes place at Brooklyn Studios for Dance, a studio and performance venue housed in the auditorium of historic Cadman Congregational Church in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The project title Order My Steps is taken from a bulletin board in the building's lobby that sits between the church and dance space and reads "Lord, Order My Steps." In the context of the exhibition, this text takes on a new meaning; the artists' work guides us through the space, informs our movement, and immerses us in an experience and dialogue.

On the Town - Madison Theater at Molloy College
Through May 13, 2018 - Rockville Centre

With the pomp and fanfare of New York City, the brassy lyricism of Leonard Bernstein, and the sweet immediacy of a day of freedom during a time of war, On the Town is an American classic, beloved both for its moment in history and for its timeless qualities of youth and exuberance. The show follows the adventures of three sailors on leave for just 24 hours in the great city of New York before heading off to battle in World War II. Goofy ladies' man Ozzie is looking for a date—maybe seven or eight—and studious innocent Chip, guidebook in hand, has several days' worth of tourist attractions to check off his list. But when idealistic Gabey falls for the photograph of lovely Miss Turnstiles, a subway beauty queen, they all join in an ambitious scavenger hunt around the city to locate this dream girl — and, on the way, find all of the romance, adventure, and New York atmosphere for which they could wish. Joined by Claire, a sophisticated anthropologist with a red-hot heart, and Hildy, a sweetly aggressive cab driver on the lam, the sailors careen through museums and nightclubs, Carnegie Hall, and Coney Island, before Gabey and Ivy are finally united — just in the knick of time. With brash, spectacular, and slightly bittersweet abandon, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest. With a soaring score by Leonard Bernstein and humorous, highly intelligent lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, On the Town features the seductively upbeat "I Can Cook, Too," the melancholically beautiful ballad "Lonely Town," and that most iconic of tunes, "New York, New York."

Stomp - Orpheum Theatre
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

There's no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

Ms. Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton - Blue Note
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

Ms. Lisa Fischer is stepping into the spotlight at last. After four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa is finally offering her own humble, heartfelt song, accompanied by her inventive new band Grand Baton. The breakout success of the Oscar-winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom (2013) altered the course of Lisa's musical journey. Featuring clips of Lisa's 1991 Grammy-winning R&B hit "How Can I Ease The Pain" and her legendary duet with Mick Jagger on "Gimme Shelter," and glowing testimonials from famous colleagues like Sting, Patti Austin, and Chris Botti, the film showcased her virtuosity and vulnerability, earned her a second Grammy award, and left audiences eager to see and hear more. "Ms. Fischer has become the unexpected star of Mr. Neville's film," said the New York Times. Lisa set out on tour with no recordings or video to help book and promote shows, headlining first in small clubs then at the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals, then at concert halls in major cities. In performance, she draws from an eclectic palette of influences, putting her stamp on Led Zeppelin and Little Willie John, recasting rock anthems from her tours with the Stones and Tina Turner. Grand Baton's organic fusion of African, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean rhythms, psychedelic soul, and progressive rock ignites Lisa's flexibility and freedom of expression. "Transcendental!"(The Huffington Post) "The single best show I've seen in the many years I've visited Birdland." (The New York Times) "The hair on the back of your neck stands up. The display of vocal magic was mesmerizing." (The Edmonton Sun) "[A] wondrous instrument that can seamlessly blend classical, jazz, soul, gospel, rock and folk." (Minneapolis Star Tribune). "Her glamorous-girl-next-door quality makes fans all over the world think she's their own secret discovery." (Broadway World) Lisa's range is legendary, but her greatest gift is the ability to reach the hearts of her listeners. Raised in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, she emerged from New York's studio scene in the early-1980s and quickly became session singer royalty. Lisa's career revolved around supporting other artists, including her mentor Luther Vandross and a constellation of music legends including Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Bobby McFerrin, Grover Washington, Patti LaBelle, and other major recording artists. Lisa joined the Rolling Stones on tour for the first time for their 1989 Steel Wheels tour; she has graced their stage for 26 years.

'On The Town' - Madison Theatre at Molloy College
Through May 13, 2018 - Rockville Centre

With the pomp and fanfare of New York City, the brassy lyricism of Leonard Bernstein, and the sweet immediacy of a day of freedom during a time of war, On the Town is an American classic, beloved both for its moment in history and for its timeless qualities of youth and exuberance. The show follows the adventures of three sailors on leave for just 24 hours in the great city of New York before heading off to battle in World War II. Goofy ladies’ man Ozzie is looking for a date—maybe seven or eight—and studious innocent Chip, guidebook in hand, has several days’ worth of tourist attractions to check off his list. But when idealistic Gabey falls for the photograph of lovely Miss Turnstiles, a subway beauty queen, they all join in an ambitious scavenger hunt around the city to locate this dream girl — and, on the way, find all of the romance, adventure, and New York atmosphere for which they could wish. Joined by Claire, a sophisticated anthropologist with a red-hot heart, and Hildy, a sweetly aggressive cab driver on the lam, the sailors careen through museums and nightclubs, Carnegie Hall, and Coney Island, before Gabey and Ivy are finally united — just in the knick of time. With brash, spectacular, and slightly bittersweet abandon, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest. With a soaring score by Leonard Bernstein and humorous, highly intelligent lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, On the Town features the seductively upbeat “I Can Cook, Too,” the melancholically beautiful ballad “Lonely Town,” and that most iconic of tunes, “New York, New York.”

To Catch A Terrorist - La Mama
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

A new Choreopera; utilizing different movement writing techniques, a sound archive, and space making strategies to create an ominous score that wonders whose lives (and therefore intangible heritage) matter.

Tennessee Williams: No Refuge but Writing - The Morgan Library & Museum

One of the greatest American playwrights of the twentieth century, Tennessee Williams (1911–1983) was a master of language and a tireless craftsman. This exhibition focuses on Williams's career during the years 1939–1957, when he authored such masterpieces as The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

The Seeing Place Theater presents The Whistleblower Series - The Paradise Factory
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

The Seeing Place Theater presents The Whistleblower Series three plays in repertory: The People VS. Antigone, I Am My Own Wife, and My Name is Rachel Corrie April 21 - May 13, 2018 at The Paradise Factory The Seeing Place Theater presents The Whistleblower Series, three plays in rep: The People VS. Antigone, I Am My Own Wife, and My Name is Rachel Corrie from April 21 - May 13, 2018 at the Paradise Factory, 64 E. 4th Street, NYC. Tickets to each show are $20 general admission ($30 Premium Seating, $10 5@50%) and are available at http://www.TheSeeingPlace.com, including discounted ticket packages to all three plays for $45. The Seeing Theater's eighth Season has focused on bringing together stories that challenge the ways in which we relate to our fellow man. The season concludes with a triple-header: THE PEOPLE VS ANTIGONE, a world premiere adaptation by Brandon Walker, running in rep with two searing one-person shows: I AM MY OWN WIFE, the Tony Award winning play by Doug Wright and MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE by Katharine Viner and Alan Rickman from the writings of Rachel Corrie. Each play in the Whistleblower Series explores the female protagonist as anti-hero. Each has mysteries around their actions with the public vilifying them and diluting their intended message. Additionally, all three plays explore international themes: Antigone is set in Greece, I Am My Own Wife is set in Germany but also has Americans, Russians and even the Japanese represented. And My Name Is Rachel Corrie has an American girl going to Israel/Palestine. With THE WHISTLEBLOWER SERIES, The Seeing Place examines the fallout when someone in our society calls out tyranny. "Society likes to romanticize the whistleblower, but when an activist stands up and says 'NO' there is often more backlash than support," said The Seeing Place's Managing Director, Erin Cronican. "We see abuse victims shamed and activists killed, and yet most people believe in the tenets these whistleblowers have put forth. So, what explains this gap? Our ensemble is using these three challenging and polarizing plays to expose that gap and ignite a conversation - with the hope that empathy and deeper understanding will emerge."   Even though the plays of The Seeing Theater's 8th Season span a hundred years and countless generations of storytelling, the subjects broached, and lessons learned are achingly relevant today. TSP chose these plays to open up a dialogue with an audience about the world. How can we build on what we've learned from the people who've come before us? THE PEOPLE VS ANTIGONE An adaptation by Brandon Walker from the play by Sophocles Directed by Brandon Walker The Seeing Place presents a world premiere adaptation of Sophocles tragic story - THE PEOPLE VS ANTIGONE. A modern take on the classic myth, this new play explores a rebel daughter taking on the patriarchy: will she lose her life when she breaks Theban law by burying her dead brother's body against decree? I AM MY OWN WIFE by Doug Wright Directed by Erin Cronican Based on a true story, and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I AM MY OWN WIFE tells the fascinating tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a real-life German transvestite who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime. Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize and the 2004 Tony Award. MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE by Katharine Viner and Alan Rickman from the writings of Rachel Corrie Directed by Brandon Walker On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a twenty-three-year-old American, was crushed to death by an Israeli Army bulldozer in Gaza as she was trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home. In the three sold-out London runs since its Royal Court premiere, the piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and it has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates.

The Seeing Place is a trained, actor-driven ensemble creating master theater, reinterpreted live, to make it relevant and accessible to audiences today. We live up to our name by engaging our community in a vivid conversation about what makes us human. Connection. Learning. Humanity. That's what theatron is all about. The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company: built by actors and managed by actors to be a base for actors who want to hone their craft in a creative and supportive artistic home, resulting in unparalleled dedication and excellence. We are forcefully committed to four key elements of theatre-making: *Mentoring and developing the next generation of independent, socially-conscious theater-makers; *Honoring the acting craft as central to the theater-making process, using the rehearsal practices of the Group Theatre to bring vivid, raw, "fully lived" storytelling to our community; * Creating edgy and compelling reinterpretations of works by master playwrights that reflect the struggles and triumphs of our current society; and * Making theater accessible for low-income New Yorkers by subsidizing 50% of our tickets. Theater is society's hands-on, in-person study of human behavior. By placing a keen focus on behavioral storytelling, The Seeing Place has become well-known for intense and intimate ensemble work. Productions are rehearsed in a structured, organic manner, involving improvisation and heavy script analysis. Through private funding and public fundraising events / campaigns, The Seeing Place ensemble feverishly fundraises in advance of each production so that it can subsidize all ticket prices to just $20 per ticket.

Come From Away - Schoenfeld Theatre
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander's air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family.

She, a Choreoplay - The Gym at Judson
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

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.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through May 14, 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.

Home is not only the structure of ones house, but the place one longs for. An original live music score, delicately combines string instruments and melodies of Bluegrass and Irish Fiddle, while performers use puppetry, dance and story to tell this poetic tale. Magical, visual, stimulating, and oftentimes funny, Olive & Pearl is a supportive performance first for the very young.

On The TownPresented by Molloy College CAP 21 BFA Program - Madison Theatre at Molloy College
Through May 15, 2018 - Rockville Centre

With the pomp and fanfare of New York City, the brassy lyricism of Leonard Bernstein, and the sweet immediacy of a day of freedom during a time of war, On the Town is an American classic, beloved both for its moment in history and for its timeless qualities of youth and exuberance. The show follows the adventures of three sailors on leave for just 24 hours in the great city of New York before heading off to battle in World War II. Goofy ladies' man Ozzie is looking for a date—maybe seven or eight—and studious innocent Chip, guidebook in hand, has several days' worth of tourist attractions to check off his list. But when idealistic Gabey falls for the photograph of lovely Miss Turnstiles, a subway beauty queen, they all join in an ambitious scavenger hunt around the city to locate this dream girl — and, on the way, find all of the romance, adventure, and New York atmosphere for which they could wish. Joined by Claire, a sophisticated anthropologist with a red-hot heart, and Hildy, a sweetly aggressive cab driver on the lam, the sailors careen through museums and nightclubs, Carnegie Hall, and Coney Island, before Gabey and Ivy are finally united — just in the knick of time. With brash, spectacular, and slightly bittersweet abandon, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest. With a soaring score by Leonard Bernstein and humorous, highly intelligent lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, On the Town features the seductively upbeat "I Can Cook, Too," the melancholically beautiful ballad "Lonely Town," and that most iconic of tunes, "New York, New York."

The Genesis Plays - The Theater at the 14th Street Y
Through May 18, 2018 - New York

Over the past three years, The In[heir]itance Project devised THE GENESIS PLAYS by entrenching themselves in five mid-sized US cities and opening up the creative process so those communities could participate and develop a deeper connection to the performance and the biblical narratives that inspire the project. Each GENESIS PLAY is inspired by the narrative of a matriarch or patriarch from the book of Genesis and devised with communities in a different city. THE ABRAHAM PLAY (Twin Cities 2015) follows a Wall Street stock jock searching for a lost deed in a scavenger hunt where the audience holds the clues. In THE REBECCA PLAY (Charleston 2016), the city becomes a mother playing favorites among her children, White and Black. THE JACOB PLAY (Austin 2016) is a hard-hitting, smackdown, knockout wrestling extravaganza! THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY (Seattle 2017) investigates sisterhood using filmed interviews of sisters of all ages, live music, and ancient papyrus. And in THE SARAH PLAY (Kansas City 2017), three actors struggle with how to tell a sacred shared narrative of the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions, when there are multiple accounts of the truth.

Maribel Matthews - Agora Gallery
Through May 18, 2018 - New York

Spring Awakenings Maribel Matthews' illustrious oeuvre harmoniously captures the joy within the world that surrounds her. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, Matthews' paintings capture a variety of themes, including but not limited to idyllic landscape scenes, still lifes, portraiture, as well as abstract canvases. The artist's palette mirrors her Mediterranean background as bright, bold jewel tones adorn her compositions, inviting the viewer into her jubilant and festive domain. Crisp lines and thick, nearly impressionistic brushstrokes characterize the majority of Matthews' more naturalistic paintings, while her abstract works, unencumbered by the boundaries of line and shape, emanate a similar, joyful exuberance. In works such as Orchids, a vase full of the violet flowers rests upon a deep plum background. The orchids are composed of crisp lines, organic shapes and contrasted by their radiant, chartreuse leaves. They playfully present themselves to the viewer, some with agape, blossoming leaves, some bashfully hiding behind their counterparts. Bulbous, ripened peaches litter the foreground of the composition, enfolding among the flowers in a congenial promenade. The artist currently resides in Gibraltar.

Maya Ciarrcchi: Site Sorel - Kinescope Gallery
Through May 18, 2018 - New Yorl

Kinescope.Gallery in collaboration with Fillmore Projects is pleased to announce the opening on Friday, April 20th, of Site: Sorel, the second solo exhibition by New York City based artist Maya Ciarrocchi. The exhibition is comprised of video, prints, 3D models and hand- drafted architectural drawings on the gallery walls. Site: Sorel is a meditation on the real and imaginary spaces left behind by the dead. In this work, Ciarrocchi conjures an image of Barbara Sorel, an author and fixture of the 1990’s lesbian bar scene in New York City. Sorel, as she was called by her friends, sold drugs to support her writing and was tragically murdered in her East Village apartment in 1999. Some of her writing remains and an obituary appeared in the Village Voice following her murder. Apart from this and the memories of friends, she is largely forgotten by history. Combining these memories with Ciarrocchi's own, and by utilizing text from Sorel's self-published book Sorel in Love, the exhibition merges language with image to reveal where the two women's experiences intersect and collide. As part of the exhibition there will be a performance event on Friday, May 11th from 6-8pm, comprised of readings of Sorel’s writing by those who knew her. These readings will lead to a broader discussion on the subject of art, success and the lesbian experience in New York City from the 1970’s to the present. Maya Ciarrocchi is an interdisciplinary artist whose work has been exhibited at Abrons Arts Center, Anthology Film Archives, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, The Chocolate Factory, Gibney Dance, Microscope Gallery, New York Live Arts and Smack Mellon. Residencies include the Baryshnikov Arts Center, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Ucross Foundation, and she has received grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Franklin Furnace Fund, Jerome Foundation, MAP Fund and Puffin Foundation. Ciarrocchi was a 2017 Bronx Museum Artist in the Marketplace and earned a MFA from the School of Visual Arts and a BFA from Purchase College. Viewable from sidewalk daily 12-9. Open Friday and Saturday from 1-6pm and by appointment, from April 20-May 19, 2018.

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography and Spring Awakenings: Re-Visioning the Ordinary - Agora Gallery
Through May 18, 2018 - NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce two upcoming group exhibitions: Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography and Spring Awakenings: Re-Visioning the Ordinary. Illumination features recent works by eight photographers including Sam Barrow; Paul Christener; Stacey Dolen; Linda Harding; Shifra Levyathan; Lorella; Alexander Toto; and Wallace. These artists consider the affective possibilities of dynamic light in their compositions, which range from atmospheric landscapes to geometric abstractions. Working with both natural sunlight and dramatic, artificial light, the artists included use luminescence as a painterly medium, the luster of their scenes offering a transportive quality to the works on view. Printed on aluminum or metallic paper, digitally manipulated or traditional analog, the varied photographs embrace the radiant potential of light to convey emotion, attitude, and ambience. Illumination brings together these diverse views, offering a new take on the limits of the photographic medium. Spring Awakenings is an exhibition offering fresh perspective on traditional subject matter. The exhibition features works by nine emerging artists including Jerry Anderson; Maria Beykirch; Abigail Custis; Lizzy Forrester; Nancy Holleran; Becky Sungja Kim; Maribel Matthews; Margit Enggaard Poulsen; and Jenna Rose Simon. With works ranging from abstracted landscapes and painterly pastoral scenes to playful still lifes and evocative portraits, the artists included create alternative ways of seeing, elevating the everyday and disrupting conventional views. By re-visioning the ordinary, these artists present new worlds, creations in which quotidian scenes are imbued with excitement and wonder. Bright, tender, emotive, and confident, the varied offerings in Spring Awakenings seek new beginnings. Both Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography and Spring Awakenings: Re-Visioning the Ordinary will open April 28, 2018 with a reception Thursday, May 3, 2018 6-8 PM and will remain on view until May 18, 2018. Entrance is free.

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

The Cathedral was one of the first houses of worship in New York City to respond to the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, and is the home of the National AIDS Memorial Book of Remembrance. The display of three panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt is the most recent example of the Cathedral’s dedication to individuals living with HIV and support of the fight against stigma and miseducation about the disease. On May 20, members of the Cathedral’s Congregation of Saint Saviour will join thousands of fellow New Yorkers to cheer on the marchers in this year’s AIDS Walk NYC for the culminating event of the past week’s quilt display.

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.

Oliver Clegg: Euclid's Porsche - Rental Gallery
Through May 25, 2018 - New york

New York, NY – April 17, 2018 – Rental Gallery is pleased to present new work by Brooklyn-based artist Oliver Clegg for his first solo exhibition in New York City, on the ground floor of the Metal Shutter Houses project. Euclid’s Porsche is comprised of 150 paintings of Happy Meal Toys sourced from eBay seller photographs found online. The opening reception will be on Tuesday, May 1 from 6 to 8pm. The artist recreates, as oil paintings, the photos eBay sellers take of their objects, honoring the original size, composition, and color of the found image. By subverting the intent of these amateur photographers—by elevating their photographs to art—the artist adds value to their often nonchalant attempts to make a sale. These paintings are intimate and wistful, reflecting the sentimental affection we have for seemingly worthless plastic we valued as children. British-born Clegg is a conceptual artist who mines the fertile history of the past, particularly found objects, and seeks to imbue these objects with some of their original magic. His work is humorously melancholic, exposing our memories and discarded ephemera as potential sources of symbolism. This exhibition casts the internet as an open source photography album where everyone can mine memories that aren’t their own. The exhibition is curated by Adam Cohen, who bought Oliver Clegg’s entire MFA degree show in 2005, becoming his first collector. With an abundance of Oliver’s work, and the artist spontaneously decamping to the South West of England, the pair lost touch but reconnected a few years ago when Oliver substituted Wellington boots for sneakers and moved to New York. Outside NADA New York, Adam ran into his friend and artist Darren Bader who encouraged his walking partner Oliver that “Adam is one of the nicest people in the art world." A studio visit was arranged and a subsequent invitation by Rental Gallery to present the work during Frieze seemed tailor-made – the connection reestablished. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue of the complete works with a text by Darren Bader that offers over a hundred and twenty working titles for the show. Oliver Clegg has exhibited extensively since graduating in 2005 and has been presented at the Prague, Busan and Venice Biennales as well as showing in the Reykjavik Museum of Modern art, Dox Centre for thecontemporary Art and The Saatchi gallery. Anomie has recently published his first comprehensive monograph that was launched at PS1 MoMa in December 2017. His work is in various notable private and public collections.

Paul Resika (b. 1928, New York, New York) studied under Hans Hofmann as a teenager in New York and Provincetown before departing for Venice and Rome in 1950 to study the old masters. After casting aside Hofmann's abstract principles, his Italian palette turned sober and descriptive. Upon his return to the United States, Resika devoted himself increasingly to the exploration of light and color, and the synthesis of abstraction and representation. Over his eight decade-long career, Resika has exhibited at the Peridot Gallery, Graham Modern, Long Point Gallery, Provincetown, Berta Walker Gallery, Provincetown, Hackett-Freedman Gallery, San Francisco, and Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, New York. Resika splits his time between New York and Truro, Massachusetts.

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.

Jerusalem Between Heaven and Earth - Derfner Judaica Museum
Through May 27, 2018 - Bronx

Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale is pleased to announce Jerusalem Between Heaven and Earth, jointly organized with the Jewish Art Salon and guest curator Ori Z. Soltes for the 2017 Jerusalem Biennale, which will be on view at the Derfner Judaica Museum from January 28–May 27, 2018. This exhibition is free and open to the public. Photo I.D. required for entry at all times. The Jewish Art Salon’s exhibition was one of 26 exhibitions and projects from around the world that occupied multiple venues in Jerusalem this past fall. The Derfner Judaica Museum is honored to bring this exhibition to New York for its only US showing. Jerusalem Between Heaven and Earth includes 34 works by 30 artists who explore this year’s Biennale theme of “watershed.” According to Ram Ozeri, its Director and Founder, “The Jerusalem Biennale provides a stage for professional artists—from secular to ultra-Orthodox—who refer in their artwork to Jewish thought, spirit, tradition or experience.” The recent Biennale threw “a spotlight onto the concept of watershed, examining it from a literal, metaphorical and even historical perspective,” he elaborated. “The theme finds its expression in issues as varied as Jewish identity, immigration and refugees, alongside watershed moments in history. . . . Both in Hebrew (kav parashat hamayim) and in English, watershed is used to describe an important turning point—an event that changed the course of history.” Ori Z. Soltes has taken the watershed theme and interpreted it with his selection of works by artists from the US, Israel, the UK and the Netherlands. According to Soltes, “A watershed yields a branching, be it of physical terrain, historical events or spiritual and aesthetic concepts. Such an idea is particularly powerful in conjunction with the city of Jerusalem” where “the spiritual foundations. . . branch in three Abrahamic directions. . . .” Watershed ideas extend from Jerusalem’s topography to moments that shape history and thought—to contemporary aesthetics and politics. In the exhibition, paintings by Tobi Kahn and a video by Leah Caroline and Jeremy S-Horseman offer abstract suggestions of the geological watershed that helps define Jerusalem. In her video, Sarah Lightman turns that topography inward toward life’s profound watershed moments. Joel Silverstein’s painting Promised Land—here the beach at Coney Island—is a reference to biblical Israel and to the American Jewish immigrant experience. Richard McBee’s painting Exodus Redux suggests watershed moments of the biblical Exodus that pushed the Israelites toward Sinai and from there toward Jerusalem and the building of Solomon’s Temple. Solomon is traditionally discussed as the author of the Book of Ecclesiastes, explored in Ellen Holzblatt’s paintings. Gabriela Boros considers the watershed warnings to the Israelite-Judeans by the Prophet Isaiah. The universal message of the Book of Jonah is the focus of Yona Verwer and Katarzyna Kozera, of Jan Lauren Greenfeld and of Alan Hobscheid. The tradition of rabbinic commentary is encountered through works by Rachel Kanter, Beth Krensky and Ben Schachter. From there the mystical strains of Judaism emerge in Susan Schwalb’s small, tight abstractions. In Carol Buchman’s work the mystical and geological become panentheistic: the Name of God suffuses nature. Away from the sacred city, Jewish history and thought seek a return to Jerusalem—particularly at harsh watershed diaspora moments. Mark Podwal’s 1492 references the Expulsion from Spain; Billha Zussman imagines how that external watershed has internal consequences; Archie Rand offers cutting edge—watershed—visual references to the Shoah or Holocaust. Jerusalem also reaches into Islam and Christianity. Siona Benjamin’s work reflects her background as a Jewish woman from predominantly Hindu and Muslim India, now living in the US. In Exodus #5, one from a series of paintings that considers the current wide-spread refugee crisis, she interweaves that issue with an exploration of how PaRDeS (as a Jewish, and particularly a Jewish mystical concept) intersects the equivalent Islamic concept of Jannat. In her abstract monoprint, Miriam Stern reimagines the Christian vision of the Hebrew Bible depicted in the Morgan Library’s 14th-century French illuminated manuscript known as the Crusader Bible. Contemporary Jerusalem offers Aviva Shemer’s installation of suspended Hebrew, Arabic and Latin (English) letters, inspired by Martin Buber’s discussion of Jerusalem as a center of Am ve’Olam (A People and the World); Jane Logemann’s frenetic Hebrew and Arabic repetitions of the word “water” transform into abstract images. In her painting, Leah Raab imagines the Valley of Tears, the site of a massive assault in the Golan Heights during the Yom Kippur War. In two photographs, Dorit Jordan Dotan focuses on the crisis of Israeli-Palestinian water-sharing and the geological processes at work separating water from salt at the Atlit salt flats. Bruria Finkel turns the issue of potable and salt water back toward the geology of Jerusalem. Yehudis Barmatz-Harris turns water to fire as history moves back from the crucible of Jerusalem’s return to Jewish hands to the purification process of the Israelites in the wilderness and the burning of the Red Heifer. Pamela Fingerhut returns viewers to the moment when Moses is placed in the Nile, in this case by a modern day Miriam. Elaine Langermann’s mixed media work, Poem/Painting #11—“Watershed,” combines image and text to ask what art is and where we move forward, intersecting the questions: what is Jewish art? And what is Judaism? Both of these are suffused by questions—like the city of Jerusalem itself. About the curator Ori Z. Soltes teaches theology, philosophy and art history at Georgetown University, Washington, DC. For seven years, Dr. Soltes was Director and Chief Curator of the B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum, where he created over 80 exhibitions focusing on aspects of history, ethnography and contemporary art. He has also curated diverse contemporary and historical art exhibitions at other sites, nationally and internationally. As Director of the National Jewish Museum he co-founded the Holocaust Art Restitution Project and has spent nearly 20 years researching and consulting on the issue of Nazi-plundered art. Dr. Soltes has lectured at dozens of museums across the country, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He has been interviewed for a score of programs on archaeological, religious, art, literary and historical topics on CNN, the History Channel and Discovery Channel.

Mary Heilmann: Painting Pictures - Dia Art Foundation
Through May 27, 2018 - New York,

In the early 1970s, Mary Heilmann began creating art that harnessed everyday domestic objects, repurposing them with a boldly hand-painted touch. Arriving in New York in the late 1960s, she was energized by the artists occupying the Minimal and Postminimal art scene. Heilmann's encounters with the work of artists closely associated with Dia's history, such as Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, made a significant impression while also delineating a clear difference between their practice and her approach. This exhibition at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton, New York, presents artworks that mark key milestones in Heilmann's practice. The presentation includes a selection of early paintings from the 1970s and 1980s when Heilmann began visiting the East End of Long Island. She eventually set up a studio in Bridgehampton, where all of her paintings and many of her ceramics have been made since 1999. Several recently finished works that have not been seen outside of her studio are included in this exhibition as well. Mary Heilmann: Painting Pictures at the Dan Flavin Art Institute is made possible by generous support from Carol and John Finley. Additional support is also provided by 303 Gallery, New York, Philip E. Aarons and Shelley Fox Aarons, Allison and Larry Berg, and Hauser & Wirth.

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.

Before the Fall: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s - Neue Galerie
Through May 28, 2018 - New York

On February 22, 2018, Neue Galerie New York will present "Before the Fall: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s," an exhibition devoted to the development of the arts in Germany and Austria during a decade marked by economic crisis, political disintegration, and social chaos. The Neue Galerie is the sole venue for the exhibition, which will be on view through May 28, 2018. The exhibition is organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, University Professor at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, and serves as the third show in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Peters that focus on German history. The first of these three shows, "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany 1937" organized in 2014, examined the infamous traveling exhibition "Entartete Kunst" mounted by the National Socialist regime. The exhibition was an enormously popular and critical success. The second show, "Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" on view in 2015, explored the critical role played by the city of Berlin in the growth of modern culture. Pandiscio Green is the designer of the exhibition and catalogue for "Before the Fall," and can also be credited for the inventive installations for the previous two shows in this trilogy.

Central topics of the exhibition will be the reaction of the artists towards their historical circumstances, the development of style with regard to the appropriation of various artistic idioms, the personal fate of artists, and major political events that shaped the era.

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.

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.

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?

Rita McBride: Particulates - Dia Art Foundation
Through June 02, 2018 - New York,

This new commission by Rita McBride, titled Particulates (2017), is inspired by time travel, the principles of light and space, and quantum physics. The materials of McBride's Particulates include water molecules, surfactant compounds, and the beams of high-intensity lasers. Her use of light as a sculptural medium marks a departure for the artist who has explored the tension between architectural and sculptural form in her extensive oeuvre since the mid-1980s. Particulates exchanges gravity, a core element in sculpture, for the potential of infinitely traversable space. It unfolds a wrinkle in time.

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.

Paradise Blue is the first production of Obie Award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau's Signature Residency. Directed by Tony Award-winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson, Jitney), it is a thrilling and timely look at the changes a community endures to find its resilience.

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.

Through June 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

A social dance born and bred in 1970's New York City has resurfaced among the new generation of social dancers. Alessandra teaches a traditional Hustle foundation that focuses on 3-count rhythmic synchronicity of leader and follower and the responsibility of each to create a balanced partnership. Social dancing is an outlet to communicate without words, listen to disco classics and contemporary mixes of funk and soul. Above all, to have fun! Dance partners are not required to attend the class. Partners will be made in class and rotate throughout its duration. About the Artist: NYC's social dance community grabbed Alessandra Marconi's attention one night three years ago at a house music dance club.

Marconi soon discovered Hustle dance and humbly became a student of notable OGs like Alex Kim, John Merisier and Domingo Cruz. Alessandra is a versatile artist who works professionally as a dancer, writer and artistic collaborator. She moved to New York City 7 years ago, graduated from Marymount Manhattan College and has since spent several months performing in Europe and Asia.

Klein Technique w/ Barbara Mahler - Brooklyn Studios for Dance
Through June 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Klein Technique as taught by Barbara Mahler is a cohesive integration of body and mind, based on the principles of change, possibilities and a better functioning body. It is a technique grounded in the principles that what helps us more and function at our optimum efficiency are simple ideas, exercises and practice, the demands being the same in dance as everyday life. It's principles go beyond aesthetic viewpoints. It is a technique that provides strong and grounding underpinnings for all types of movement. The work done in class is to re-educate the body with an interweaving of theory and practice on a physical level, at the level of the bone and the deep internal musculature and supportive connections that move, and ground us – between the pelvis, the legs and the earth and back up to the skull. The result – a clarity and sureness of movement efficiency, fluidity and a new level of understanding the innate intelligence of one's body. With these teachings we come closer to realizing who we are as movers – as individuals; unique in our creativity, our movement, our being.

Treatment: The Plan for Rain - Knockdown Center
Through June 17, 2018 - Maspeth

Treatment: The Plan for Rain is a project by Nicholas O'Brien that rethinks the NYC Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) stormwater collection program by focusing on soil biodiversity, transparency, maintenance, and its impact on citizens. Through a series of animations and sculptures, artist Nicholas O'Brien questions how the DEP's plan employs System Engineering principles that often ignore the human element in undertaking large-scale urban infrastructure projects. The animations in the exhibition render components from the stormwater collection systems, and are overlaid with segments of audio from interviews with various experts as well as DEP officials. The exhibition attempts to shed light on the often opaque decision making that occurs when trying to reshape the city into a more environmentally conscientious place.

Symphonie Fantastique - HERE
Through June 17, 2018 - New York

Twenty years ago in 1998, Basil Twist debuted his boundary-breaking response to Berlioz's 1830 "Symphonie Fantastique" to universal acclaim, inaugurating HERE's intimate Dorothy B. Williams Theatre. In the two decades since Symphonie Fantastique's premiere, Basil Twist has become an internationally recognized artist in opera, ballet, and on Broadway, and has won countless awards including the illustrious MacArthur Fellowship. Twist will revisit his legendary masterpiece as part of HERE's 25th Anniversary Season. In this revival, accompanied live by the virtuosic pianist Christopher O'Riley playing the exquisite Liszt transcription, Symphonie floats and swirls in a 1,000-gallon water tank neatly disguised as a puppet stage. For the many who never saw it, and for those who relish seeing it again and again, the return of this tour de force to HERE is the event of the season.

Chloë Bass: The Book of Everyday Instruction - Knockdown Center
Through June 17, 2018 - Maspeth

Knockdown Center presents Chloë Bass: The Book of Everyday Instruction, an eight-chapter investigation of one-on-one social interaction, exploring an expanded understanding of "the pair." This exhibition will be the first time the project is exhibited in its entirety, and includes all eight chapters developed by Bass between January 2015 and January 2018 as well as additional interventions created in response to Knockdown Center's public spaces outside of the gallery. Bass uses daily life as a site of research to study the modes and scales of intimacy, locating where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. Her works prioritize the fostering and observing of everyday interpersonal situations, and take a variety of forms across photography, text, video, sculpture, performance, a mobile phone app, poetic modes of documentation, and site-specific interventions. Presented in sequential chapters, each with its own central question and focus, Bass' inquiries expand in scale and scope; she begins with an investigation of intimacy between herself and a stranger, and expands outward to study the relationships between individuals and their safe spaces, institutions, and finally cities.

Paul Fusco RFK Funeral Train - 1968 - Danziger Gallery
Through June 22, 2018 - New York

On the 50th anniversary of the train ride that took Robert Kennedy's body from New York to Washington where he was to buried alongside his brother, Danziger Gallery is honored to reprise our showing of Paul Fusco's photographs of the people who lined the rails to pay their final respects to RFK. In the years since they were taken these photographs have become a beloved, influential, and seminal series in photography. And while in some ways they represent the end of the hopes and dreams of the sixties, at the same time they celebrate the idealism and diversity of America. In the middle of 1968, two events shook the nation - the assassination of Martin Luther King on April 4th and the assassination of Robert Kennedy on June 5th. Hastily arranged, Robert Kennedy's funeral train took place on June 8th – a swelteringly hot early summer day. Paul Fusco, then a staff for LOOK Magazine, was given a place with other journalists on the train. As the train made its progress down the eastern seaboard, hundreds of thousands of mourners came out to line the railway tracks and pay their final respects to Bobby Kennedy and all he stood for. From inside the train, Fusco began to take pictures of the mourners – people from every section of society – black, white, rich, poor, in large groups and on their own. For the eight hours it took for the train to make the usually four-hour journey Fusco never put down his camera except to reload film shooting approximately 2,000 pictures.

Alberto Savinio - Museum of the City of New York
Through June 23, 2018 - Manhattan

Giorgio de Chirico's younger brother, Savinio lived under the shadow of his more famous sibling. Still, he shared De Chirico's Surreal aesthetic and haunting subject matter, though not his classical precision. Instead, Savinio opted for a combination of softer contours and brushwork that, in something of a supreme irony, became the template for Chirico's late work.

Tommy Hartung: R.U.R. - C24 Gallery
Through June 23, 2018 - New York

C24 Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by artist Tommy Hartung, marking his inaugural exhibition with the gallery. R.U.R will be on view from May 4 through June 23, 2018 at 560 West 24th Street, with an opening reception on Friday May 4 from 6 – 8 pm. R.U.R., which stands for Rossum's Universal Robots, presents a series of new, interactive video installations based on Karel Kapek's 1920 science fiction play of the same name in which the term "robot" was first used. The play explores the speed of technological progress and the uncertainties and dehumanization that occurs as a result of the robotization of human interactions. In Hartung's adaptation, the original play is re-written through photographs, costumes and interactive videos that pose the question: Why do men want to create robots that look human? Tommy Hartung's works analyze the creation and dissemination of cultural narratives by fragmenting and deconstructing his source material. Through the montages of stop motion animation and found footage, Hartung uses the themes of modernism as his subject matter. His sculptures, the subjects of his videos, are assembled through scavenged material to form hybrids of classical characters and nuanced allegory.

All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station - East Village Playhouse
Through June 24, 2018 - New York

All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station, a loose adaptation of the postmodern Russian novel Moscow Circles by Vienya Erofeev, follows a poet-drunkard called Vienya as he traverses Soviet Moscow in an attempt to catch a train to visit his beloved in the distant suburb of Petuskhi. Along the way, he is haunted by fantastic visions, and two mysterious women, seemingly determined to frustrate his plans. In the tradition of anti-theater more popular in New York City in the 70s and 80s, and the works of artists such as The Living Theater, Bread and Puppet, Grotowski, Kantor, etc., All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station rejects naturalistic forms of narrativization and storytelling. Instead, a sequence of maniacal fever dreams explore Soviet life through the lens of Vienya’s troubled mind. Experience and emotion fuse with references from religion, art, history, and more in a psychotic chorus, creating poetic and surreal images and hallucinatory episodes reminiscent of the strange logic of the unconscious. In these times of revived Cold War tensions, widespread alienation, and looming threats of authoritarianism emerging across the globe, All Roads Lead to the Kurski Station is an urgent warning, and bitter prophecy. The stylistic fusion of European avant-garde theatre, performance art, Dadaist aesthetics, satire, and montage invites the viewer to experiment with interpretation within the intellectual and emotional opulence of Vienya’s phantasmagoria.

Eóin Francis Mccormack: Born in Time - Irish Arts Center
Through June 29, 2018 - New York

Eóin Francis McCormack is blazing a trail in Dublin with his bold and vibrant abstract artwork. With innovative techniques and an avant-garde approach, McCormack's pieces have been exhibited widely throughout Europe. He explores painting as a work ethic—mixing his own paint, fabricating his own tools, and stressing the aspects of routine and physical labor of being an artist. The large scale canvases are created with limited color palettes and found objects, leaving distinct marks on each painting. The final pieces offer an utterly unique viewing experience and mark the appearance of an arresting new voice in Irish fine art. Long-listed for the Saatchi New Sensations Award "I have constructed a practice that explores painting as a work ethic… I am interested in the time spent by the viewer, in front of the canvas; I wonder what they think, and if they consider their time spent as worthwhile."—Eóin Francis McCormack

MILLENNIUM: Lower Manhattan in the 1990s - The Skyscraper Museum
Through June 30, 2018 - New York

The last decade of the 20th century in New York City was not a simple time. The end of a millennium – a thousand-year marker – and the beginning of the 2000s prompted both anxiety and optimism, posing questions about what to retain from the past and how to move into the future. No place in the mid-1990s was more conflicted about these prospects or more ripe for reinvention than lower Manhattan – especially the historic Financial District. Wall Street was losing banks to mergers and relocations. Grand skyscrapers of the 1910s and ‘20s were becoming technologically obsolete and sliding down-market. The lasting effect of the 1987 stock market crash, followed by the savings-and-loan scandals, caused a real estate recession that hit Downtown harder than other districts. Vacancy rates for office buildings topped 28 percent. New thinking and policies were necessary. Preservation and reinvention were twin themes of the Downtown discussion. Landmarking and converting older office buildings to residential and other uses were strategies of economic development. Celebrating the district’s rich history and creating a culture for tourism was another initiative, led by Heritage Trails New York. Twenty years ago, the nascent Skyscraper Museum used the real estate recession to find free space for its first pop-up exhibitions in grand vacant banking halls at 44 Wall Street and 14 Wall. MILLENNIUM revisits this recent history of lower Manhattan in the years just before Downtown’s identity was cataclysmically recast as Ground Zero, and a new era truly began.

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

Drawing the line: Realism and Abstraction in Expressionist Art - Galerie St Etienne
Through July 06, 2018 - New York

Landscapes after Ruskin: Redefining the Sublime - Grey Art Gallery
Through July 07, 2018 - New York

Landscapes after Ruskin: Redefining the Sublime explores contemporary painting, photography, sculpture, and video through the lens of influential English art critic and social thinker John Ruskin (1819–1900), who argued that the artist's principal responsibility is "truth to nature." For Ruskin, this "truth" was more than just a technical representation of the natural world on canvas but also a depiction of it as experienced by humankind. In Landscapes after Ruskin, guest curator and artist Joel Sternfeld examines how, in a world overwhelmed by industrial development and environmental uncertainty, contemporary artists are discovering new beauties and terrors associated with nature and, in so doing, invoking an updated sense of the sublime. The exhibition features a wide range of works by over fifty artists, including Richard Artschwager, Christiane Baumgartner, Katherine Bradford, Spencer Finch, Neil Jenney, Raymond Pettibon, Michal Rovner, Ai Weiwei, and David Wojnarowicz, among others. Organized by the Hall Art Foundation, the exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Anything Goes: The Jazz Age Exhibition - Nassau County Museum of Art
Through July 08, 2018 - Roslyn Harbor

Wild, hot, roaring, and free, the Jazz Age is immediately identified as the decadent heyday of such heroes as Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Cole Porter, Josephine Baker, e.e. cummings, Langston Hughes and other rebels who would “live it up to write it down” in New York, Paris and the Riviera. The gang’s all here in one multimedia exhibition that combines art, literature and music. Explore the masterpieces and experiments of a generation that changed the history of Modernism. The giants among the artists of the Twenties were Picasso, Léger, Miro, Gaston Lachaise, Stuart Davis, Florine Stettheimer and Tamara de Lempicka. Composers such as Gershwin and Porter were taking syncopation and the blues to new heights, while the Ballets Russes broke all dance conventions. The literature of the era included such masterworks as James Joyce’s Ulysses and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which was begun in nearby Great Neck and inspired in part by a painting by Francis Cugat that is one of the highlights of the show. A gallery dedicated to the super-heroes of the age includes memorabilia related to Lindbergh and the original Hobey Baker trophy, college hockey’s highest honor named for a World War I flying ace who was the real-life inspiration for some of Fitzgerald’s characters.

With powerful paintings and sculpture, intimate drawings (some never before exhibited), bold posters, sheet music, fashion, eye-dazzling jewelry, sleek furniture, and musical instruments (including Victrola turntables and a piano playing Gershwin’s own piano rolls), the exhibition brings the Jazz Age vividly to life. “Living well is the best revenge” was the motto of an extraordinarily fortunate generation, anything but “lost,” that remains today the epitome of sheer creative freedom.

The exhibition has been underwritten by a generous gift from Americana Manhasset and Wheatley Plaza, with additional funding provided by the Ritz-Carlton Residences and Charles Scribner III.

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife, an exhibition exploring the history of the ground-breaking Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, examines the circumstances that inspired early environmentalists—many of them women and New Yorkers—to champion the protection of endangered birds.

It also regulated the nation's commercial plume trade, which had decimated many American bird species to the point of near extinction.

Adrian Piper: A Synthesis Of Intuitions, 1965–2016 - The Museum of Modern Art
Through July 22, 2018 - Manhattan

In 1996 Adrian Piper wrote, "It seemed that the more clearly and abstractly I learned to think, the more clearly I was able to hear my gut telling me what I needed to do, and the more pressing it became to do it." Since the 1960s, this uncompromising artist and philosopher has explored the potential of Conceptual art—work in which the concepts behind the art takes precedence over the physical object—to challenge our assumptions about the social structures that shape the world around us. Often drawing from her personal and professional experiences, Piper's influential work has directly addressed gender, race, xenophobia, and, more recently, social engagement and self-transcendence.

Terry Winters Forces and Fictions - The Drawing Center
Through July 29, 2018 - Soho

A leading figure in the art world for four decades, Terry Winters became well known in the 1980s for his materially-conscious drawings and paintings. Representing the patterns and schema that undergird physical and intellectual life—French philosopher Gilles Deleuze is cited as an important reference—Winters's drawings of grids, networks, and knots illustrate complex encounters between biological drives, technological systems, and mental processes. The Drawing Center's Main Gallery will present an overview of Winters's drawings from 1980 to the present including full cycles of drawings, such as File Drawings (2009), as well as a selection of large-scale works on paper that foreground the overarching theme of Winters's practice: the desire to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received. Rather than offering a comprehensive drawing retrospective, the show will be organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the gallery, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images.

Hipkiss Bulwark - The Drawing Center

For Bulwark, the artists' first solo museum show in New York, Hipkiss will present the most recent cycle of drawings in their series The Towers (2015–ongoing). The drawings pull from the myriad allegorical significance of towers as symbols for transcendence, irrational ambition, and piety.

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

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

Derrick Adams: Sanctuary - MAD Museum of Art and Design
Through August 12, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image.Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America.

Derrick Adams: Sanctuary - Museum of Arts and Design
Through August 12, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image. Derrick Adams: Sanctuary consists of 50 works of mixed-media collage, assemblage on wood panels, and sculpture presented in an installation designed by the artist that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century.

The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, during the Jim Crow era in America. Referred to simply as The Green Book in its day, the publication served as a guide to finding businesses that were welcoming to black Americans, including hotels and restaurants, during an era when open and often legally prescribed discrimination against nonwhites was widespread. These designated safe spaces were places of refuge and leisure, where one could spend quality time with friends and family. The depiction of black America at leisure is a theme of continued interest to Adams, who explores how engaging in leisure as a form of relaxation and reflection can be a political act when embraced by members of black or working-class communities. Derrick Adams: Sanctuary reflects on the plight of working-class black people before and during the Civil Rights Movement, and their determination to pursue the same American Dream afforded to others. Today, The Green Book serves as a poignant artifact and reminder of the importance of equality during a time in which uneven law enforcement continues to negatively shape the lives and experiences of many black Americans.

Being: New Photography 2018 - The Museum of Modern Art
Through August 19, 2018 - Manhattan

Every two years, MoMA's celebrated New Photography exhibition series presents urgent and compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year's edition, Being, asks how photography can capture what it means to be human. At a time when questions about the rights, responsibilities, and dangers inherent in being represented—and in representing others—are being debated around the world, the works featured in Being call attention to assumptions about how individuals are depicted and perceived. Many challenge the conventions of photographic portraiture, or use tactics such as masking, cropping, or fragmenting to disorient the viewer. In others, snapshots or found images are taken from their original context and placed in a new one to reveal hidden stories. While some of the works might be considered straightforward representations of individuals, others do not include images of the human body at all. Together, they explore how personhood is expressed today, and offer timely perspectives on issues of privacy and exposure; the formation of communities; and gender, heritage, and psychology. Exploring new ground and the many forms that the photographic image can take, New Photography is a key part of the Museum's contemporary program. Since 1985, the series has introduced new work by over 100 artists from around the world. In 2018, Being brings together an international group of 17 artists at various stages in their careers, all presenting their work at the Museum for the first time.

RAMM?LLZ??: Racing for Thunder - Red Bull Studios New York
Through August 26, 2018 - New York

The cultural impact of the equation known as The Rammellzee (1960—2010) — legendary artist, graf writer, hip-hop pioneer, Gothic Futurist theoretician and New York cult icon — set the groundwork for today's interdisciplinary creative hyphenates. Taking over the entirety of Red Bull Arts New York, RAMM?LLZ??'s largest survey to date examines the evolution of the artist's diverse body of work. From seminal post-graffiti works to his rare but robust formal output throughout the 1980s, the show features important artworks and sculptures created over the last 20 years of his life. The exhibition gathers archival materials and artworks from RAMM?LLZ??'s estate and collections around the world, alongside oral histories recently commissioned by Red Bull Arts New York. This historic survey aims to introduce a new generation to an artist-prophet from the edge who found himself, again and again, in the center of everything.

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro - The Museum of Arts and Design
Through September 02, 2018 - Columbus Circle

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of 91. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro’s signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women’s domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro’s femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women’s work.

Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro’s subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find inspiration in her embrace of artistic practices outside the art historical canon. To highlight this legacy, works by a select group of contemporary artists, including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian, will be exhibited alongside Schapiro’s signature femmages. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary work brings into critical focus the tremendous role Schapiro’s femmages played in the reframing of craft and decoration, while shining a light on the way artists today, both distinguished and emerging, continue to approach the decorative as a language of abstraction tied to the personal and the political.

Built Exhibition Opening - Socrates Sculpture Park
Through September 03, 2018 - Long Island City

A park-wide solo exhibition of newly commissioned works by Virginia Overton that refashion found materials with dynamism and potency. In succinct, elegant forms, often accompanied with wry humor, Overton addresses concepts of labor, economics, and the land. Her material choices–fundamental elements for construction and fabrication–combined with her transparent approach to process, evoke narratives of self-reliance, creative constraints, and expediency. At the park, Overton creates new iterations of familiar works--an altered pickup truck, a water feature, a roof truss gem sculpture, and a suspended beam, among others.

Julia Phillips: Failure Detection - The Museum of Modern Art
Through September 03, 2018 - Manhattan

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition of New York-based artist Julia Phillips (b. 1985, German), featuring newly commissioned major works in combination with existing sculptures. Primarily working with ceramics, Phillips creates objects and scenes that are intimately connected to the body. Her sculptures mostly avoid direct figuration, however, and instead propose various interventions into and support structures for the body, emphasizing its absence from the works. Impressions of the human form are visible through elements like casts of orifices, handprints, and other traces, which indicate particular bodily placements in relation to her forms. While suggestive of particular functions and purposes that are overtly physical, these works also extend to the social and psychological. For Phillips, the body is entangled in the real and abstract spaces of politics, evident through indications given in her arrangements as well as the works' titles, which are often directives for specific actions.

Projects 108: Gauri Gill - The Museum of Modern Art
Through September 03, 2018 - Manhattan

MoMA PS1 presents the US premiere of photographer Gauri Gill's most recent body of work, Acts of Appearance, a series of vivid color photographs for which the artist worked closely with members of an Adivasi community in Jawhar district, Maharashtra, India. Gill's collaborator-subjects are renowned for their papier-mâché objects, including traditional sacred masks. In these pictures they engage in everyday village activities while wearing new masks, made expressly for this body of work, which depict living beings with the physical characteristics of humans, animals, or valued objects. A range of scenarios and narratives, situated in both "reality" and dreamlike states, come together in the photographs, which simultaneously portray symbolic or playful representations as well as the familiar experiences of community members against the backdrop of their home and culture.

Surface/Depth - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one.

AMNH to Open Amazon Adventure in 3D Digital March 9 - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 13, 2018 - New York

Amazon Adventure traces the extraordinary journey of 19th-century naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates—the most influential scientist you’ve never heard of—who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance, and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into his fascinating study of animal mimicry, the phenomenon in which one animal adopts the look of another. Filmed on location, Amazon Adventure plunges audiences into a wild world of breathtaking beauty and captivating animals, including an array of nature’s masters of mimicry. Painstakingly researched for three years, the film enlisted the expertise of more than 100 scientists and historical advisers. The team’s commitment to authenticity not only resulted in this rigorous re-creation, even using actual instruments and tools from the 1850s, but the writing team also incorporated many of Bates’ own words, as he was a gifted storyteller. Produced by SK Films (Flight of the Butterflies 3D), the film is directed by Mike Slee and is executive produced by Jonathan Barker and Sean B. Carroll, starring Calum Finlay as Henry Bates, written by Wendy MacKeigan and Carl Knutson and shot by cinematographers Gerry Vasbenter and Richard Kirby, with an original score by Brazilian composer Antonio Pinto. The makers of the film, a co-production between Canada, the U.K., and Brazil, were granted unprecedented access by the Natural History Museum of London to film Bates’ own scientific field notebooks and botanical drawings, and to film the butterflies he personally collected over 160 years ago—butterflies that had never left the museum. Screening through September 13, 2018, Amazon Adventure will be shown daily in the Museum’s Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater, in 2D at 11:30 am and 4:30 pm, and in 3D at 10:30 am and 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 pm. Times are subject to change. To purchase tickets in advance, the public should call 212-769-5200 or visit amnh.org. A service charge may apply. Developed in close collaboration with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, Amazon Adventure also received major funding from the National Science Foundation through the film’s educational outreach partner, Pacific Science Center. Other key partners include the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Simons Foundation, and Foxconn Brazil and Vale. Photo Credit: SK Films

Tanya Aguiñiga: Craft & Care - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 23, 2018 - New York

Los Angeles–based artist and designer Tanya Aguiñiga has established herself as a crucial voice working at the intersection of fiber art, design, social practice, and activism. Her work, ranging from her "Performance Crafting" series—which uses craft to generate dialogues about identity, culture, and gender—to furniture whose material and form reimagine its functionality to provide "support," shows a commitment to design thinking as political. At the heart of her practice is an inquiry into how community is created, and the role that craft, design, and materiality play in its formation. Founded by Aguiñiga and launched in 2015, AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides) is a long-term initiative that activates sites along the US–Mexico border through collaborative art-making and storytelling projects. Started as a month-long activation at the San Ysidro border crossing in Tijuana, it has evolved its focus to record and paint a picture of life along the length of the border. To date, AMBOS, in collaboration with artists and community organizations working with border issues/themes, has produced programs along the border between the United States and Mexico, stopping at thirteen US/Mexico ports of entry, and crossing a total of forty times. In 2018 Aguiñiga will complete the project, activating the remainder of the border from where she left off at El Paso/Ciudad Juárez.

La Frontera - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 23, 2018 - New York

Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction.

    Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes - New York Historical Society
    Through October 08, 2018 - Upper West Side

    Shoes in recent years have culturally transcended their utilitarian purpose to become an object of desire and deliberation, calling up abstract considerations—like the freighted meanings of femininity, power, domination, and aspiration—for both women and men alike. Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes highlights examples from the shoe designer's extensive private collection, assembled over three decades. The exhibition considers the story of the shoe from the perspectives of collection, consumption, presentation, and production with more than 100 pairs of shoes on view. The exhibition will explore larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women's contributions as makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Coordinated by Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History, with Edward Maeder, consulting curator, and Jeanne Gardner Gutierrez, curatorial coordinator.

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

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

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

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

    Visitors can take a pause inside the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, an immersive installation inspired by traditional Tibetan household shrines. They are also in
