Hop Along - Brooklyn Steel
May 30, 2018 - Brooklyn

Frances Quinlan has been meditating a lot on power. "When I was younger, I kept thinking that one day I would have a partner and that person would give me power," she says. "That never came to be." Instead, what Quinlan, the songwriter, lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist of Hop Along, has found is that "power has an inherent awfulness to it and people who have it tend to be disappointing in how they wield it." In this particular moment in history, this thought begs a greater question: what do we do with power and the men who so freely brandish it? "I'm angry that I believed in this false idea for so long, that a man would come along and show me what I was worth." This theme propels the Philadelphia-based band's third studio record, Bark Your Head Off, Dog. Written over the course of 2016 and 2017 and recorded in the summer of the latter year by Quinlan, Tyler Long (bass), Joe Reinhart (guitar), and Mark Quinlan (drums), the album imagines what it's like to cast off longheld perceptions, often without being certain about the new ones that will replace them. Much like on Hop Along's first and second records, Get Disowned and Painted Shut, Quinlan seeks in real time to work through these emotions. On Bark Your Head Off, Dog, she also grasps at something more complicated. "Growing up I was constantly in my head and not a part of the world," she says. "Now I'm trying to force myself into the world." Throughout Bark Your Head Off, Dog, one gets the sense that Quinlan is wandering in the thicket of a forest-a state of being that will feel familiar to longtime listeners-and on this outing, she hasn't left a trail of breadcrumbs behind her. The album's artwork, which Quinlan painted herself, invites the listener into that forest, as well. "There is a terror in getting lost," she says, "the woods are at the same time beautiful and horrifying." This curious wandering gives the album, both lyrically and musically, a heightened dimensionality.

The MET Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
May 30, 2018 - New York City

Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 is an elegant work with an abundance of beautiful melodies that also shows a fascination with all things Turkish, including a section where cellos and basses slap the wooden side of their bows on the strings to create an exotic percussive sound. Mahler's Symphony No. 5 has its own share of melodic splendor, particularly in the fourth-movement Adagietto—the gorgeous love letter he wrote to his wife, featuring strings and harp. The symphony is also dramatic with a powerful opening Funeral March and roof-raising jubilant finale.

Through May 30, 2018 - New York

JOAN ARMATRADING became the very first UK female singer/songwriter to gain international success. Three times Grammy nominated, two times Brit Awards nominated, winner of a coveted Ivor Novello Award, winner of the Gold Badge Award, winner of Radio 2's Lifetime Achievement Folk Award singer/songwriter, Joan Armatrading MBE has come a long way since her birth in the West Indies and her upbringing in Birmingham. While growing up, Joan's father owned a guitar however, it was strictly out of bounds so when Joan saw one for £3 in a pawn shop window she pestered her mother to barter two old baby carriages they no longer used. Joan then taught herself to play and began writing songs at the age of 14. Her debut album, "Whatever's For Us", released on Cube Records in 1972 and produced by the late great Gus Dudgeon, was critically acclaimed, resulting in Joan being voted as best newcomer on the UK music scene.

Jon Cleary - Brooklyn Bowl
May 30, 2018 - Brooklyn

With the release of GoGo Juice on FHQ Records, New Orleans funk master Jon Cleary returns to the hard driving, soulful, and funky pop tunes that have brought him critical acclaim since his 1999 album Moonburn. Beyond Cleary's considerable skills as a tunesmith he is equally renowned around the globe as an accomplished keyboardist and guitarist, and a deeply soulful vocalist. Cleary's thirty-five years of intensive hands-on work on the Crescent City scene has made him a respected peer of such New Orleans R&B icons as Dr. John and Allen Toussaint. Toussaint, in fact, took time from his busy schedule to write most of the horn arrangements for GoGo Juice. In addition to the Toussaint touch, GoGo Juice bursts, full flavor, with expert accompaniment by some of New Orleans' top session men – including fellow keyboardist and vocalist Nigel Hall, and the Dirty Dozen horns – along with members of Cleary's band, the Absolute Monster Gentlemen, and the veteran production skills of Grammy Award-winning producer John Porter.

Experimental composer-collectives thingNY and Varispeed perform Rick Burkhardt's Passover and Kenneth Gaburo's Maledetto.

Ultimately, it becomes clear that all of these friends form one collective identity.

Philip Gorski, American Covenant: A History of Civil Religion from the Puritans to the Present - the New York Society Library
May 30, 2018 - New York

The Yale professor and author of The Protestant Ethic Revisited gives us an authoritative account of the long battle between exclusionary and inclusive versions of the American story. Our present polarization has many causes. One is the long-running battle between those who believe that the United States was founded as a secular democracy and those who believe it was established as a Christian nation. In this event, Gorski argues that our founding tradition was a synthesis of both sacred and secular sources. He traces the history of this civil religious tradition from Puritan times through to the present day and reflects on how it might help heal our political divisions.

Roots Nyc | Louie Vega & Kevin Hedge - Cielo
May 30, 2018 - New York

A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. What distinguishes the Grammy winner and 4-time nominee as one of the best living house music deejays is his ability to evolve alongside the times, distill the current musical landscape through his unique taste and put his own timeless spin on it. "Little" Louie Vega, as he is sometimes affectionately known, was born in the Bronx into a musically gifted family (his father, a jazz saxophonist, and his uncle, Salsa King Héctor Lavoe). The "Little" moniker is ironic, given the fact that by the 80s he was deejaying at clubs he wasn't even old enough to attend, holding residencies at Studio 54, Devil's Nest, Hearthrob, Roseland, and the Palladium. Soon Vega was producing his own remixes, which included Information Society's "Running", Noel's "Silent Morning" and Debbie Gibson's "Only in my Dreams". Then in 1991 he joined Atlantic Records—and hit the mainstream. Teaming with an-up-and-coming Marc Anthony, he helped to produce "Ride on the Rhythm". An immediate hit, the single put Vega and Anthony on the map. The duo would rock the club circuit, with their success culminating when they opened for Tito Puente at his 100 Album concert at Madison Square Garden.

Posthaste Perennial Patterns: Talk and Screening with Jodie Mack - The Museum of Arts and Design
May 31, 2018 - New York

Centering on the use of domestic and recycled materials, this program of short films illuminates formal and cursory elements shared between fine-art abstraction and mass-produced graphic design. The works presented—six shorts by Jodie Mack and “The Florestine Collection,” by Helen Hill and Paul Gailiunas—question the role of decoration in daily life, and unleash the kinetic energy of overlooked and wasted objects. The program will feature a brief talk by Mack, whose artwork is featured in Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro. Mack will also take part in a post-screening Q&A moderated by Ekrem Serdar, Media Arts Curator for Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Art Center. Expanding upon notions of anti-animation set forth by experimental practitioners like Paul Sharits and Robert Breer, the films in this program apply formal principles of abstract cinema while pursuing an interest in found materials, evolving modes of production, and forms of labor. The works extend the temporal concerns of the Structural film, a simplified form of cinema that is driven by critical formalism rather than narrative content. By reflexively activating the referential properties of objects, the films refute abstraction, foregrounding questions of Romanticism surrounding metaphor and exchanging lyrical and mythopoeic modes for those of economic observation. In Mack’s “Persian Pickles” (2012), a study of paisley patterns traces the motif from its origins in Persian weavings to appearances in Irish quilting and American counterculture. Her ongoing “Blanket Statement” series uses quilts to evoke issues of domestic security, citing appearances of quilts in the fine arts from Michelangelo Pistoletto to Beryl Korot. “Point de Gaze” (2012) and “Razzle Dazzle” (2014) employ handmade and machine-produced laces, tattings, and intricate weavings to meditate upon the industry of desire and the phenomenology of cinema. Mack’s films are screened in concert with “The Florestine Collection” (2011), directed by Helen Hill and Paul Gailiunas. After discovering more than a hundred handmade dresses in a trash pile during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Hill set out to make a film about the dressmaker, an elderly seamstress who had recently passed away. Hill’s husband, Paul Gailiunas, completed the film after Hill’s death. Jodie Mack prints courtesy the artist. “The Florestine Collection” courtesy Harvard Film Archive. About the Artists Jodie Mack is an experimental animator who received her MFA in Film, Video, and New Media from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Combining the formal techniques and structures of abstract/absolute animation with those of cinematic genres, her handmade films use collage to explore the relationship between graphic cinema and storytelling, the tension between form and meaning. Mack’s 16mm films have been screened at a variety of venues, including the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Images Festival, Projections at the New York Film Festival, and the Vienna International Film Festival. She has presented solo programs internationally at institutions including the 25 FPS Festival, Anthology Film Archives, the BFI London Film Festival, the Harvard Film Archive, REDCAT, and the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Her work has been featured in publications like Artforum, Cinema Scope, Senses of Cinema, and the New York Times. An Associate Professor of Animation at Dartmouth College, where she co-organizes the experimental media series EYEWASH, Mack is a 2017–2018 Film Study Center Fellow/Roberta and David Logie Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. Helen Hill (1970–2007) was an American animation filmmaker and social activist who lived in New Orleans. On December 30, 2009, the Librarian of Congress named Hill’s short film “Scratch and Crow” (1995) to the National Film Registry, a list of aesthetically, historically, and culturally significant American motion pictures. Moderator Ekrem Serdar is the curator at Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center, where he is responsible for the organization’s exhibitions, public programming, and artist residencies. He is the recipient of a Curatorial Fellowship from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts (2017). His writing has appeared in The Brooklyn Rail, 5harfliler, among others. He is currently working on an exhibition titled Punctures: Textiles in Digital and Material Time that will open in Buffalo in Fall 2019. He is from Ankara, Turkey.

Shifting the Paradigm of Addiction: A Sea Change . . . A Change in Seeing - The New School
May 31, 2018 - New York

The change in our view of substance use is a long time coming. For many, the current medical orientation often leads to poor outcomes. For others, however, there is no debate. They see addiction as a disease and for them, doubting this fact is a form of blasphemy – dangerous and heretical. We are heading toward a paradigm shift. It can potentially mean a decrease in stigma, and a much more nuanced view of the use of drugs and alcohol. The change allows for such words as "harm reduction," "moderation," and "social contingencies"to be used openly and freely; opening the door for insight regarding connections between oppression, social inequality and the use of substances. Organized by Ellenhorn and the Center for Optimal Living, and hosted by The New School for Social Research's Concentration in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counseling, this annual conference aims to hasten that shift by bringing together thought leaders, researchers and practitioners to present on new, innovative and liberating ways of approaching substance use. This year, our conference features prominent thinkers including: Gabor Maté, MD and Andrew Tatarsky, PhD with opening remarks from Ross Ellenhorn, PhD.

Pam Tillis Trio - Opry City Stage
May 31, 2018 - New York

As the child of Country Music Royalty, Pam Tillis was determined from a young age to find her own way in music as a singer and songwriter. After many false starts with her own recording career—including a pop single on Elektra and 1984's "Above and Beyond the Doll of Cutey" for Warner Brothers—Tillis came to the attention of Tim Dubois who headed up the Nashville office of Arista records. After much soul searching, Tillis made the commitment to make an honest country record. The album Put Yourself In My Place yielded 2 number one singles, 2 top-five singles, 1 top-twenty hit, and was certified gold within the first year of its release. Tillis followed with 3 platinum albums on Arista, Homeward Looking Angel in 1992, Sweethearts Dance in 1994 and an Arista Greatest Hits in 1997. Tillis achieved 6 number 1 songs during this time including "Shake the Sugar Tree," "Mi Vida Loca," "When You Walk In The Room," "In Between Dances," "Don't Tell Me What To Do," and "Maybe It Was Memphis" while 14 of Pam's other singles landed in the top ten and top twenty.

Quantum Leaps: Quantum Information in Quantum Many Body Physics - Columbia University
May 31, 2018 - New York

The last decade witnessed an explosion in the application of quantum information methods in condensed matter/many body physics. Concepts such as entanglement, entanglement spectrum and entropy–almost unheard of in condensed matter physics as recently as 15 years ago–are now routinely used to describe phases of matter and new proposed quantum many body states. The converse is also true, as methods of condensed matter physics have influenced new developments in quantum information theory, partially driven by the quest to build working quantum computers. This one-day workshop will look at recent developments at the mutual frontier of quantum information and condensed matter/many body physics.

Can the elders see the benefits of working together for a new future?

 

 

Residency Gabrielle Herbst: Ashes - Roulette
May 31, 2018 - Boerum Hill

"Where Is My Voice" (2017) investigates the feeling of not being able to speak – when you can't find the words or space to express those words. "Ashes" (2018) Written for two voices and two loop pedals, electronics, harp, violin, cello, flute, piano and clarinet, the opera explores themes of personal and collective vulnerability. Progressing through sensory, dreamlike, non-narrative tableaux with close harmonization, textural rhythms, melismatic vocals, and electronics, the opera takes an immersive look at an inner world struggling to connect outwards.

Fun Lovin' Criminals - Highline Ballroom
May 31, 2018 - New York

Fun Lovin' Criminals' infectious blend of cinematic hip-hop, rock 'n' roll, blues-jazz , latin-soul burst onto the New York music scene in 1996 with the release of the worldwide multi-platinum debut album 'Come Find Yourself' on EMI Records. Their debut single 'Scooby Snacks', famed for sampling Tarantino movies such as Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, spent 17 weeks on the Billboard chart, quickly achieving gold status in the US. The band became an international hit, settling down in the UK, where their debut album spent over two years in the UK album chart. FLC performed an infamously raucous set on the famous Pyramid main stage at Glastonbury '99 and the rest - as they say - is history. In a time where Europe was dominated by the 'Brit-pop' invasion, FLC were a refreshing blend of American music past, present, and future. Taking a blend of rock and rap and crossing boundaries by sampling AOR and covering Louis Armstrong songs. For Europeans at the turn of the millennium, Fun Lovin' Criminals were the sound of New York City. FLC Frontman Huey (born and raised on E 6th St in the 70s, swiftly became a celebrity across the pond through his customary New York charm and forthrightness. To many critics, FLC remain the worlds' finest and only purveyors of this 'sound'. FLC are Europe's best-loved "cousins from New York", whip-smart story-tellers in smarter Saville Row suits who, through comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis via music, drugs, crime and existential ennui, launched a career in music that saw three ordinarily New Yorkers who met working at the legendary Limelight on W 20th St, swap glass collection for world tours with their pals U2 and studio collaborations with the late-great BB King. Despite being a mainstay on the UK & European festival circuit, the May 31 performance at Highline Ballroom (431 W 16th St) marks the first Fun Lovin' Criminals performance in NYC for 10 years.

Conversation: Religion in the Age of Mass Politics with Suzanne Schneider, Ajay Singh Chaudhary, and Anthony Alessandrini - the New York Society Library
May 31, 2018 - New York

In our occasional series, experts on a current-events topic bring their knowledge to an informal presentation and discussion with readers who want to get beyond the headlines. Join us for a special live recording of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research's Podcast for Social Research, as three experts on Middle Eastern culture, history, and politics consider the relationship between religion and mass politics in the modern age. Is religion a source of political stability and social continuity, or an agent of radical change? In what ways have political forces and motivations shaped "timeless" religious beliefs and practices, and vice versa? And how, in light of these considerations, should we understand attempts to create a clear boundary between the religious and the political? Inspired by Suzanne Schneider's new book Mandatory Separation: Religion, Education, and Mass Politics in Palestine, this event will explore these thorny questions—so central to contemporary conversations about religion and extremism—drawing on examples from the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.

Pulp Fiction with a Boozy Vanilla Milkshake - Videology Bar & Cinema
May 31, 2018 - Brooklyn

"We were primed for a movie like Pulp Fiction. Its narrative and visual and aural pastiche, spitting pop cultural allusions like sparks from a grinding wheel, spoke a language we instinctively understood. Pulp Fiction didn't define us so much as it revealed us, by dramatizing our sensibilities to the world." – Senses of Cinema Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are hitmen with a penchant for philosophical discussions. In this iconic, multi-strand crime movie, their storyline is interwoven with those of their boss, gangster Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames); his actress wife, Mia (Uma Thurman); struggling boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) ; master fixer Winston Wolfe (Harvey Keitel) and a nervous pair of armed robbers, "Pumpkin" (Tim Roth) and "Honey Bunny" (Amanda Plummer). Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 1994. 154 min.

Floral Contemplations: The Duality of Vision, New Work by Mary Ahern - Bayard Cutting Arboretum
May 31, 2018 - Great River

Open to the Public Thursdays – Sundays 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM

Opening Reception: May 20, 2018, 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM.

Mary Ahern brings her award-winning style of floral and garden-inspired art to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum from May 17 through June 17, 2018. Three galleries of her floral portraits will be on display at the historic Manor House at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River NY. The galleries are open on Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am until 4 pm.

Mary Ahern, known for her brilliant floral and garden paintings will be showing her latest large-scale flower portraits. As a passionate gardener who is inspired by the gardens she designed and tends surrounding her own studio, these flowers represent to her a microcosm of the universe. The large scale of these individual portraits asks questions beyond the canvas.

What is the purpose for such magnificence in nature? What is the reason for such color, such form, such diversity? What is their relationship to the communities to which they belong, their relationships with other plants and species that sustain them, invade them and nourish them. What of their lifecycle of birth, growth, senescence, and rebirth? As humans, what can we learn from their seemingly simple existence?

Initially, we see with our eyes. We name it, identify it and classify it. But we also have a duality of vision which allows us to contemplate with an inner vision. This art invites both the external and internal views.

Talks Progress Administration: HIV, The Three Epidemics - Caveat
May 31, 2018 - New York

AIDS abruptly appeared in 1981 and quickly created a world of fear, destroying countless lives and exposing the deadly power of public stigma along the way. Almost four decades later, much has changed, and yet much work still remains to be done. Three Epidemics uses a mix of science and theatrical multimedia to explore the history of HIV and assess how it evolved from a deadly infection to a chronic disease, how lack of access to healthcare and mistaken public perception may be helping the disease spread, and how we can use tools of advocacy and awareness to win the fight against AIDS.

The Bad Plus - Blue Note Jazz Club
Through May 31, 2018 - New York

Since its outset, iconic trio The Bad Plus has dared to be different, challenging all preconceived notions of jazz. Through a provocative style of arrangements and compositions they call "avant-garde populism", their unique blend of influences, ranging from experimental jazz, indie rock, pop, and classical music has earned this "audacious, rule-breaking jazz trio" (Billboard) a reputation as one of the most universally well-respected bands in jazz today. In 2017, the founding members — bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King — will hit the road performing music from the band's most recent release, It's Hard. 2018 heralds a new and exciting chapter for the band. Anderson and King will be joined by pianist Orrin Evans, whose fresh sound and complementary style will be featured on The Bad Plus' highly anticipated new album due out that year. Raised in Philadelphia, Evans has led various projects and has recorded and performed with the likes of Christian McBride, Sean Jones, and many more. The BBC summed up the band best when they said, "from album to album, The Bad Plus continues to evolve and improve." They will never stop doing just that.

The Music of Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston - Club Bonafide
May 31, 2018 - New York

The Music of Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston Feat. Emilie Surtees For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them — something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Club Bonafide.

Japanese Breakfast - Warsaw
May 31, 2018 - Brooklyn

"The title Soft Sounds From Another Planet alludes to the promise of something that may or may not be there. Like a hope in something more. The songs are about human resilience and the strength it takes to claw out of the darkest of spaces." Michelle Zauner wrote the debut Japanese Breakfast album in the weeks after her mother died of cancer, thinking she would quit music entirely once it was done. That wasn't the case. When Psychopomp was released to acclaim in 2016, she was forced to confront her grief. Zauner would find find herself reliving traumatic memories multiple times a day during interviews, trying to remain composed while discussing the most painful experience of her life. Her sophomore album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, is a transmutation of mourning, a reflection that turns back on the cosmos in search of healing. "I want to be a woman of regimen," Zauner sings over a burbling synth on the album's opening track "Diving Woman." This serves as Zauner's mission statement: stick to the routine lest you get derailed, don't cling to the past, don't descend. In fact, ascend to the stars; Zauner found artistic solace removed from Earth, in outer space and science fiction. "I used the theme as a means to disassociate from trauma," she explains. "Space used as a place of fantasy."

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

Unleashing Opening Reception Thursday, April 5, 6 – 8 p.m., Everett Lounge Teachers College, Columbia University 525 West 120th Street • New York, NY 10027 T: +1 212 678-3461 Unleashing April 1 – May 31, 2018 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily http://unleashing.net and http://unleashing.tc.columbia.edu ____________________________________________________________________________________ Unleashing is a site-specific multi-media art exhibition across the hallways of Teachers College highlighting concepts of the American philosopher Maxine Greene, whose idea of “social imagination” provides the ground for the works on display. Carrying forward the success of Doing and Undergoing on view throughout Teachers College in 2013, Unleashing features the work of 28 international artists, and is accompanied by an audiovideo guide leading visitors to each of the 21 sites of the exhibition, as well as by special public programming, guided tours, a video screening series, and artist talks. The exhibition and its title Unleashing are inspired by Greene’s book Releasing the Imagination, which is driven by a vision of aesthetic education, equality, and social justice. “The role of imagination,” she argues, “is not to resolve, not to point the way, not to improve. It is to awaken, to disclose the ordinarily unseen, unheard, and unexpected.” For Greene, artists, like educators, propose how the world could be other than it is. Drawing on a collaborative model, this exhibition puts forward an ethics of inclusion, one that is in dialogue with its built and natural environment, the diverse communities of students, teachers, staff and community members that traverse through or pass by the building daily. Unleashing is driven by the idea of responding to a particular space, Teachers College–a complex of interconnected buildings whose eclectic architecture and spatial politics serve as an evocative testimony to how education and society have changed over time. The building, as the gravitas of this exhibition, serves as an ethical reminder, to paraphrase renowned architect Mark Foster Cage, of the things that are greater than us. Through an emphasis on process at the core of Unleashing, we seek to consider the place of education and knowledge production. As a structured form of transmitting knowledge, education is informed by the current ideals and perceived accomplishments of society and humanity more broadly. The fallibility of these assumptions--one that is integral to any form of knowledge--is always potentially transmitted, too, thus making the possibility of failure part and parcel of education itself. Taking our cue from Maxine Greene, Unleashing looks at positions taken by artists who are willing to unlearn what were made norms before them and develop their own artistic language and research based on possibilities that they create, thus participating in knowledge production processes to imagine new prospects and redefining that which is humanly possible. The exhibition includes works by Fanny Allie, Nadav Assor, Brandy Bajalia, Burcak Bingol, Jean Marie Casbarian, Gregory Climer, Steffani Jemison, Ebru Kurbak, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Elisabeth Molin, Yasmin Jahan Nupur, Jacob Olmedo, Bernd Oppl, ?ener Ozmen, Rafael Pagatini, Rit Premnath and Avi Alpert, Macon Reed, Saša Tka?enko, Hurmat Ul Ain and Rabbya Naseer, Jaret Vadera, Marion Wilson and Cathy Lebowitz, as well as Caroline Woolard and Jeff Warren. The exhibition is accompanied by the Unleashing ScreenSaver Project by (c) merry and a commissioned video work by Chelsea Knight guides visitors throughout the building. Unleashing is directed by Richard Jochum and curated by Livia Alexander and I??n Onol. The project is made possible by the Office of the Provost and the Art & Art Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University. The exhibition will be on display from April 1 – May 31, 2018, at 525 West 120th Street, New York, NY 10027. A public reception will be held on April 5, 2018, from 6 – 8 p.m., in the Everett Lounge. Video works by Sasha Litvintseva, Shelly Silver, Sille Storihle and Jumana Manna, as well as Saša Tka?enko will screen in the Media Services Lounge on select days. Guided tours will be offered throughout. For information contact Emily Lin, pl2614@tc.columbia.edu | T +1 (212) 678-3461 | http://unleashing.net and http://unleashing.tc.columbia.edu About Teachers College, Columbia University: Teachers College, Columbia University, is the oldest and largest graduate school of education in the United States, and also perennially ranked among the nation’s best.

Floral Contemplations: The Duality of Vision, New Work by Mary Ahern - Bayard Cutting Arboretum
May 31, 2018 - Great River

Mary Ahern brings her award-winning style of floral and garden-inspired art to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum from May 17 through June 17, 2018. Three galleries of her floral portraits will be on display at the historic Manor House at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River NY. The galleries are open on Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am until 4 pm.

Mary Ahern, known for her brilliant floral and garden paintings will be showing her latest large-scale flower portraits. As a passionate gardener who is inspired by the gardens she designed and tends surrounding her own studio, these flowers represent to her a microcosm of the universe. The large scale of these individual portraits asks questions beyond the canvas.

What is the purpose for such magnificence in nature? What is the reason for such color, such form, such diversity? What is their relationship to the communities to which they belong, their relationships with other plants and species that sustain them, invade them and nourish them. What of their lifecycle of birth, growth, senescence, and rebirth? As humans, what can we learn from their seemingly simple existence?

Initially, we see with our eyes. We name it, identify it and classify it. But we also have a duality of vision which allows us to contemplate with an inner vision. This art invites both the external and internal views.

Noise Petals - ShapeShifter Lab
May 31, 2018 - Brooklyn

Azurøze : software engineer —> basshead —> DJ Raised on the works of jazz heroes such as Allan Holdsworth and Frank Zappa, and rock legends like Soundgarden and Rush, this software engineer turn DJ discovered the world of EDM and found inspiration. She strives to fuse her musical roots with her newfound love of genres in the realm of bass house, future bass, and techno, to bring new life to echoes of the past. the mid 1980s. They quickly expanded beyond Princeton walls to jangle at colleges from Swarthmore to Yale to Trenton State, as well as legendary clubs like CBGBs, Hoboken's own Maxwell's and Revival in Philly. The Petals went on to open for national acts like 10,000 Maniacs and Throwing Muses at Trenton's now defunct, legendary City Gardens. And in a fun reversal of future fortunes moment, they even headlined a lawn party with Princeton High's own uppity Blues Traveler as the support. In winter of '88 the band recorded their debut Noise Petals EP, originally released on LA's Stonegarden Records to mixed acclaim, and now available digitally everywhere via CollegeBand.com. Almost immediately after sending their vinyl testament out into the world, the Petals did what any proper Ivy League rock band would do; they broke up and got jobs. Drummer Tom Stegeman remains a formidable force on the skins, though he is a peripatetic real estate mogul by trade. Guitarist Hearn Cho is a cancer researcher at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in NYC, but owns a beautiful anti-indie rock guitar, and can still move his fingers across the frets with frightening speed. Singer James Trigg is a copyright attorney in Atlanta, where he numbers Petals heroes REM as clients, and has put out several albums over the years with bands like the Jupiter Watts. Bassist Jeremy Toback, who now ghost writes for commercial directors in LA, has made some noise in the music business as a solo artist, and founding member of seminal Seattle band, Brad, as well as beloved alt-lullaby duo, Renee & Jeremy. Noise Petals have recently reunited for a two-show East Coast barn storming tour, beginning at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn, NY on 5/31/18, and concluding with a prodigal return to Princeton's Prospect Street on FRI 6/1/18, venue to be discovered.

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

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

Jerry Drake and The Front Page Big Band - Knockdown Center
June 01, 2018 - Maspeth

Jerry Drake's interest in music began in early childhood. Both of his parents played the piano. His dad played by ear, and his mother only played if the music was in front of her. When his parents realized that their son had an ear for music, they hired a piano teacher for 11-year old Jerry. Prior to that, as a young child, Jerry played in a park across the street from a trumpet studio. His love for the sound of a trumpet eventually influenced him to switch from piano lessons to trumpet instruction. During that time, he also sang in the chorus in school. According to Drake, "In my late teens, I began playing in local bands in New York City and Long Island. Most of the musicians in these bands were much older than I was, which gave me the opportunity to learn the tunes in the 30's and 40's. At 19, I added valve trombone to my performance. In 1961, the draft board caught up with me and I was drafted into the Army. I spent the next two years playing tuba and trumpet in the Army band."

Lisa Lampanelli - Paramount Hudson Valley Theater
June 01, 2018 - Peekskill

Lisa Lampanelli became a household name when she joined 17 other celebrities on the fifth season of the NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice”, where she advanced to the final four in the competition, raising $130,000 for her chosen charity. She also starred as a regular on “Bounty Hunters,” CMT’s first-ever animated series, and guest-starred on a hilarious episode of the CBS’s “2 Broke Girls.” Lampanelli’s rise to the top of the comedy food chain began in 2002 when she was the only female comedian invited to skewer Chevy Chase on the NY Friars Club Comedy Central Roast. She soon became known as the “Queen of the Roasts,” going on to lambaste such names as Pamela Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy, William Shatner, Flava Flav, David Hasselhoff, and, most recently Donald Trump. Due to her success as a roaster, in 2009, Lisa was asked to serve as Roastmaster for the highly rated Comedy Central Roast of friend and fellow comic, Larry the Cable Guy. The good times kept on going as she released her HBO comedy special, “Long Live the Queen,” and her autobiography, Chocolate Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks (Harper Collins). The Connecticut native shot her fifth stand-up special, “Back to the Drawing Board,” which premiered June 2015 in EPIX and was nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award for “Best Comedy Album.” The special shoed off her radically different look after having lost more than 100 pounds. That weight loss, which she has maintained for over four years, inspired her to write her play, “Stuffed,” since having been every size from 2 to 26, she has firsthand knowledge of the food and body-image struggle.

The Charlie Hunter Trio at The Loft - City Winery
June 01, 2018 - New York

All shows in The Loft are seated, general admission. Seats are first come first served so we recommend arriving early. Check out the new menu at The Loft! With a career spanning 25 years and almost 20 albums, Charlie Hunter consistently ups his game as an innovative writer and bandleader. He has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, D'Angelo and countless others. He is widely considered the authority on the seven and eight string guitar, and continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms. Silvana Estrada, a native of Mexico's southeast, had just started her studies of Jazz at the University of Veracruz and quickly became known throughout the Jazz Studies Centre as a unique triple threat talent: an instrumentalist, playing the Cuatro Venezolano, vocalist and songwriter whose original compositions are a mixture of Latin American sounds and a vocal interpretation that comes from the "son jarocho" tradition of Veracruz. On a whim after rehearsing one day, Silvana and the band took a road trip to hear one of their heroes; Charlie Hunter was in Mexico City delivering a Master Class at the University. Inspired (and pushed by Alex the drummer) the band waited to meet Charlie whereupon Silvana sang for him on the spot. Charlie was so impressed that he ended up staying in Mexico, calling his sound engineer buddy Chris Finney from New Orleans and together they went to Silvana's magical hometown in the Southeastern hills of Mexico to record her debut album Lo Sagrado (The Sacred) that will be released on Charlie's non profit 30 Amp Circuit later this month. After an enormous amount of paperwork (thank you Mister President) and an enormous amount of money (thank you Mister President) Charlie and his teammates were able to get Silvana a one year work visa to take advantage of her music and newfound friends.

Gov Ball After Dark Presents: Sir Sly at The Loft - City Winery
June 01, 2018 - New York

The triumphant lead single from Sir Sly's Don't You Worry, Honey, "High" turned a hotel-room panic attack into a creative breakthrough for the L.A.-based trio. "This album started out as an exploration of fear and anxiety, over very minimal electronic music, but 'High' really opened up the honesty of the record," says lead singer Landon Jacobs, who co-founded Sir Sly with fellow multi-instrumentalists Hayden Coplen and Jason Suwito. With "High" emerging as "an upbeat anthem about ego death," in Jacobs's words, the song ultimately formed the heart of Sir Sly's second full-length: a deliberately hopeful album born from an extraordinarily dark time. Written in the aftermath of Jacobs's divorce and his mother's death, Don't You Worry, Honey transforms heavy-heartedness into unlikely joy. The album finds Sir Sly expanding on the moody experimentalism of their 2014 debut You Haunt Me, channeling a looser energy that closely shapes their more groove-driven sound. Self-produced and recorded in Suwito's studio, Don't You Worry, Honey also matches their delicately inventive alt-pop with a more granular approach to storytelling. "It was almost like writing a memoir of the past three years of my life, but focusing on little snapshots rather than telling the complete story," Jacobs points out. Thanks in part to that purposely detailed lyricism, Don't You Worry, Honey hits with an undeniable urgency. "Musically and lyrically, we wanted this album to be very much in-the-moment and paint a specific picture with each song, as opposed to just setting a vibe," says Coplen. With that clarity of vision in place, Sir Sly experienced a profound burst of inspiration. "There were all these sounds and textures that I was hearing in my head so strongly, in a way that hadn't ever happened before," says Coplen. "There was never any effort to try to make things feel fresh or new or surprising -- that all just came from following our instincts and enjoying the process of bringing the music to life."

DeadPhish Orchestra, A seamless mashup of the music of the Grateful Dead and Phish - Brooklyn Bowl
June 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Deadphish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene. While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges–funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens. The guys in DPO have posed themselves a unique challenge in merging the two styles. Setlists end up with segues that look like Divided Sky > Morning Dew > Divided Sky, or Help > Slip > Frankenstein. Or how about Mike's Song > Stella Blue > Weekapaug Groove. Or even stranger, like My Friend, My Friend of the Devil…or It Must Have Been The Roses Are Free. You can see that between the vast repertoires of the two bands, the possibilities are endless.

Paula Poundstone - Tarrytown Music Hall
June 01, 2018 - Tarrytown

With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of our country's pre-eminent comedians. She improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net. There's a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she's so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong. Poundstone's razor sharp wit and impeccable timing makes for the perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR's #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious. If you cut her into bits, each piece would be funny. (But don't!). Air becomes funny having been breathed by her."

Marginal Consort - Pioneer Works
June 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

Marginal Consort is a Japanese collective improvisation group founded by members of East Bionic Symphonia, an outfit assembled from students of Fluxus artist Takehisa Kosugi's class at the radical Bigaku school of aesthetics in Tokyo in the '70s. Meeting only once each year since their formation in 1996, Marginal Consort discuss nothing before their annual performances, preferring to gather as a collective of horizontally organized independent solos rather than a cohesive goal-oriented ensemble. The start and end times are the only fixed elements in their longform happenings, usually lasting two-to-four hours and featuring the players spread out across the performance space, distant enough to concentrate on perfecting their own work without distraction. Separate, yet together, they become entangled without subsumation into a whole, with the audience invited to mill about or recline on the floor, each creating their own subjective experience of the performance. Marginal Consort use established and homemade acoustic instruments, electronics, bamboo sticks, marbles, water, and other objects to realize their interpenetrating sonic constructs, but also incorporate actions that do not have sound production as their object.

An Evening w/ Tab Benoit - Highline Ballroom
June 01, 2018 - New York

You've tried the rest, now try the best! Tab Benoit's amazing new Medicine, 100% pure musical snake-oil. A melodic potion that provides immediate and satisfying relief for all aches and pain. Benoit's Medicine is a guaranteed cure for heartache. It's the genuine article this Medicine is for whatever ails you. Medicine, Benoit's seventh solo release on Telarc International, a division of Concord Music Group, successfully joins two gifted guitarists/songwriters in a session that proves greater than the sum of its very talented parts. Set for April 26, 2011 release, the 11-track recording features seven new Benoit originals co-written with ace songwriter Anders Osborne (his song "Watch the Wind Blow By"? was recorded by Tim McGraw in 2002, hitting No. 1 on the country charts for two weeks and selling over three million albums, and Keb' Mo's 1999 GRAMMY-winning album Slow Down, featured two songs he had co-written). Tab Benoit is Louisiana's No. 1 roots export. More than just an acclaimed bluesman, he is an indefatigable conservation advocate. Benoit is a driving force behind Voice of the Wetlands, an organization working to save Louisiana's wetlands. In 2010, he received the Governor's Award for Conservationist of the Year from the Louisiana Wildlife Federation. Benoit also starred in the iMax motion picture Hurricane on the Bayou, a documentary of Hurricane Katrina's effects and a call to restore the wetlands. If music has the power to help relieve pain and suffering, then Tab Benoit's Medicine might be just what the doctor ordered.

The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform. The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

The 11th Annual DADA Performance Salon - Cornelia Street Cafe
June 01, 2018 - New York

Three Rooms Press Presents The 11th Annual DADA PERFORMANCE SALON and Initial NYC Launch of MAINTENANT 12 Dada Journal Friday, June 1, 6 pm, $10 (includes a free drink) Cornelia Street Cafe 29 Cornelia Street (Between Bleecker & West 4th Street), NYC Prepare for an evening of disruptive, challenging and controversial art and writing as Three Rooms Press celebrates The 11th Annual DADA Performance Salon at Cornelia Street Cafe. The event will feature performances by modern day Dadaists whose work continues the spirit of the avant garde art movement sprung from the horror of World War I. The event will also celebrate the launch of Maintenant 12: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art, published annually since 2008 by Three Rooms Press. Be there: FRIDAY, JUNE 1, doors 5:45, show 6 pm at Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia Street (between Bleecker and West Fourth), New York. Costumes encouraged: "Come as you aren't." Three Rooms Press co-directors and New York-based performance artists Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges will host. Featured performers include contributors to this year's journal engaging in a variety of dada live art installations, including: Billy Cancel, Steve Dalachinsky, Gabriel Don, John S. Hall, Heide Hatry, Karen Hildebrand, J.C. Hopkins, Ron Kolm, David Lawton, Jane LeCroy, Patricia Leonard, Linda Lerner, Sophie Malleret, Valery Oisteanu, Jane Ormerod, Pamela Papino-Wood, Puma Perl, Martina Salisbury, John J. Trause, Ann F. Unger, Anoek von Praag, and Joanie H.F. Zosike. MAINTENANT 12: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art serves up the controversial theme,"WE ARE ALL A €˜LIKE'." With the rise in social media use—and abuse—the concept of "like" has reached whole new levels. There's the idea of an individual's reaction to events, people, images, etc. as a reduction to "Like" or "Dislike" without need for deeper consideration. Then there is the status factor: that something which is "Liked" by the largest number of people is of value. In fact, in the social media orbit, it is seemingly beneficial to offer strong, sharp, simplistic opinions—instead of nuanced, deeper, shaded considerations—simply because they provoke the greatest likelihood of widespread attention. How will this reduction of thought shape the future of interpersonal relations, intellectual advancement, and politics? As we teeter on the brink of nuclear war, the concept of Dada brilliantly encompasses the urgency of present times with both clarity and purposeful confusion. The MAINTENANT series, established in 2005, gathers the work of renowned and emerging dada artists and writers from around the world. The series has been archived in leading international institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art–New York, the BelVUE Museum–Brussels, and more. Renowned contributors have included artists Mark Kostabi, Raymond Pettibon, Giovanni Fontana, Jean-Jacques Lebel, and Kazunori Murakami. Writers have included Allen Ginsberg, Gerard Malanga, Charles Plymell, Jerome Rothenberg, and more, with a strong contingent of punk musician-artist-writers including Grant Hart, Mike Watt, and Exene Cervenka.

NJPAC Stage Exchange: 'The Hombres' - The Chase Room
June 01, 2018 - Newark

A new work by playwright Tony Meneses will be given a dramatic reading as part of the fourth season of NJPAC Stage Exchange, presented by NJPAC in collaboration with the New Jersey Theatre Alliance. Commissioned by Two River Theater, The Hombres looks at the intimacy of male relationships through the point of view of Machismo culture. Set in New Jersey (“somewhere off a NJ Transit line”), the play follows Julián, a gay Latino yoga teacher, as he clashes with the Latino construction workers working outside his studio—particularly the older head of the crew, Héctor, who seeks from Julián something he never expected. Tony Meneses is a New Jersey-based playwright. His work, which always includes a Latinx point of view, gives voice to experiences not often seen through Latinx bodies. His plays are about visibility and representation; they show, in Tony’s words, “that our lives are complex and diverse even within our own community.” Two River Theater has premiered two of his plays: Guadalupe in the Guest Room (2015) and The Women of Padilla (2017).

Today, Saarinen's work stands apart and continues to inspire, especially amongst renewed interest in 20th-century architects and artists who exploded the comfortable constraints of the past to create a robust and daring American aesthetic.

Meredith Dean Augustin - Club Bonafide
June 01, 2018 - New York

"When she sings, I feel close to God!" These words have been used to describe listening to Meredith. Love flows through her – and her voice touches hearts. A West Virginia girl, who grew up in Morgantown, Meredith began playing the piano and singing at a very young age. She describes, "My mom taught piano lessons while I was in her womb. I think it started there. When I was two, my mom and dad told me it was time to give up my pacifier, and I could sing myself to sleep…. I haven't stopped." Meredith's musical activities began leading her to New York City, where she eventually made her home. Currently, she is the Director of Music at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi in midtown Manhattan. A rare artist who appeals to fans of all genres – particularly jazz/world/Christian – Meredith has been blessed to collaborate with musicians from all over the world, in particular, Haiti. She has released four solo records entitled: "What's Goin' On," "Deep River," "Come and Go With Me," and "Boundless Mercy."

David Sedaris: Calypso - Strand Book Store
June 02, 2018 - Union Square

If you've ever laughed your way through David Sedaris's cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you're getting with Calypso. You'd be wrong. When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it's impossible to take a vacation from yourself. With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny--it's a book that can make you laugh 'til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris's powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future. This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris's darkest and warmest book yet--and it just might be his very best.

Black Moth Super Rainbow , The Stargazer Lilies - Music Hall of Williamsburg
June 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

If you haven't panicked lately, you're either blissfully ignorant or have gone completely clear. For the rest of us attempting to navigate the political, economical, and cultural carnage, Edvard Munch's "The Scream" succinctly captures the statue of psychic dislocation. Or N.W.A.'s "The Panic Zone." Or Black Moth Super Rainbow's Panic Blooms, the latest disorienting dystopian masterpiece from the experimental pop arsonists that haunt the black-leaved Pennsylvania woods. For the last decade, BMSR and frontman TOBACCO have explored the periphery of evil and extreme color, alternating between absurdly bright beauty and the slashed throat sinister. A sound impossible to replicate, as though it burst fully formed from a paisley-painted fire hydrant stationed in hell. They combine the aesthetically gorgeous with the hideously ugly to create a psychedelic uneasiness usually only seen in old oil paintings. What if Goya or Bosch made ravaged vocoder pop? Or a neo-impressionist painter committed himself to creating slow woozy earworms so iridian and vivid you'd think he sliced off an ear in the process.

Fort Tryon Park - Fort Tryon Park
June 02, 2018 - Manhattan

Fort Tryon Park remains one of the city's most beautiful outdoor pieces of art and one of the best presents ever received. John D. Rockefeller, Jr. began acquiring private parcels in 1917 as part of his vision of developing a beautiful park with majestic views of the Hudson River and Palisades for the public. He enlisted the Olmsted Brothers Firm, led by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., son of the architect of Central Park and his brother to develop a plan for the park in 1927. The Olmsted Brothers designed the park and oversaw its construction between 1931 and 1935. Rockefeller gifted the land to the City of New York in 1931, and construction began soon after, overseen by the Olmsted Brothers firm for Mr. Rockefeller. In 1935, Rockefeller and Robert Moses dedicated the park to the public for use. Decades after its creation, park goers can run or walk on the park's 8 miles of pathways, play on the lawns, and enjoy the city's largest garden with unrestricted public access, the Heather Garden. Recently reinvigorated by public garden designers Lynden B. Miller and Ronda M. Brands, the garden boasts over 500 varieties of plants, trees and shrubs providing year round horticultural interest. Fort Tryon Park is also home to the Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that houses nearly 5,000 medieval works in a building comprised of several structures from Europe. After soaking up ancient artwork, visitors can dine at the New Leaf Restaurant & Bar, an upscale restaurant perfect for romantic dinners and friendly brunches. Fort Tryon Park is home to Manhattan's largest dog run, complete with a gazebo for dog owners to sit and socialize, as well as two playgrounds, volleyball courts and built in ping pong tables. The pristine views of the Hudson River makes the park the perfect setting for exploring, meandering strolls, and picnics. The Fort Tryon Park Trust is the non-profit partner that collaborates with NYC Parks on sustaining and revitalizing all 67 acres of this scenic landmark parks. The Fort Tryon Park Trust provides supplemental staff for the park's upkeep, provides over 250 free public programs in the park, and funds targeted park improvements.

Damian Quiñones y su Conjunto - Latin / Rock / Funk - Silvana
June 02, 2018 - New York

For over a decade Damian Quinones has been simmering just under the radar writing tuneful, fun, smart psychedelic rock songs in somewhat of the same vein as the Zombies. His new ep Happy Accidents explores his edgier, harder-rocking side, sort of like a lo-fi version of Love Camp 7. This album took shape as Quinones began demoing songs in his home studio and then must have realized that what he had – with some welcome contributions from a brass section – was perfectly fine for public consumption. Here he plays guitars, bass, percussion and keys, along with Greg Richardson on bass, Brian Baker and Geoffrey Hull on trumpets, Eric Fraser on bansuri flute and Patrick McIntyre and Seth Johnson on drums.

Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music.

Now singer Lisa Rock and her 6-piece band are bringing the music of The Carpenters back to the stage with their spot-on renditions of Carpenters classics with Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters. Lisa Rock has been performing to sold-out crowds for years. She's written more than 15 original concerts and cabarets that have been seen across the country. Now, Rock has arranged a 6-piece band, complete with back-up singers, and together they are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other. Rock's amazing four octave range allows her to sing the hits like "We've Only Just Begun" and "Rainy Days and Mondays" in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience. "When she hits the lower range of her marvelous voice," notes critic Alan Bresloff, "if you close your eyes, you can see Karen Carpenter's face."

Over the course of his packed career, he has been responsible for breaking artists like Rihanna and Rick Ross, has shared the stage with some of the world's biggest musicians and comedians – from Jay Z to Dave Chappelle – and has established himself as a respected figure in New York's stand-up and improv scenes. Cipha got his start carrying crates and opening for Funkmaster Flex at renowned New York nightspots, the Tunnel and the Palladium, before his talent for song selection and infectious personality earned him a spot at Hot 97. There, he moved up the ranks from Flex's intern, to running his own show "Cipha Saturdays," to finally hosting the coveted morning show. During his 17 years at Hot 97, and as a host on Eminem's Sirius satellite station Shade 45, he helped launch the careers of Rihanna, Rick Ross, 50 Cent, and Sean Paul. Throughout Cipha's many career turns, two elements have remained at the fore: comedy and hip-hop, his two biggest passions. On the radio, as a VJ for MTV, and as a Live DJ, he has always maintained a sharp sense of humor on the mic. He combined both fields as the official DJ for Comedy Central's Chapelle's Show, and has continued to work with Dave Chappelle ever since, joining him on tours as a DJ and opening comedian. He is a regular DJ at Saturday Night Live after parties, and appeared in Michael Che's Netflix Special. He is now Che's go-to DJ and opening act on the road. Cipha provides an essential link between music and comedy in New York and beyond. He performs standup comedy at clubs around the city, including the legendary Comedy Cellar, ands hosts "Take it Personal – The Hip Hop Improv Show," at UCB every Friday night.

Reanimation Library Presents Collections as Algorithms - PIONEER BOOKS
June 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

In this workshop, Collections as Algorithms, we will treat the Reanimation Library and the publications therein as a system of collection, memory, communication, and control much like a machine.

This workshop will use the Reanimation Library as a mode for examining algorithmic decision-making. As we trace the failings, trappings, and benefits of applying an informatics perspective to the analog world around us, we'll consider how these implications are transferred into and out of emerging technology. This workshop is one in a series of monthly programs that activates the Reanimation Library, a collection of obscure or out-of-print publications housed at Pioneer Books.

The traditional site where Mannahatta was purchased in 1626 from the Lenape is commemorated. And we'll snack while enjoying the panoramic views of the New Jersey palisades. Resident Cardinals, Blue Jays, Chickadees and Woodpeckers seem like exotics in this very un-Manhattan-y northern part of Manhattan, and then there ARE the exotics passing through on migration from their winters in South America north for family time in Canada! Let's see what we'll find.

Y'know what's gonna be awesome? Slayer, Lamb Of God, Behemoth & Testament. Performing live at the PNC Bank Arts Center! Y'know what's not gonna be awesome though? Getting your car-less New Yorker ass all the way to Holmdel, New Jersey. That's where Rocks Off comes in! We are running an air-conditioned, bathroom-equipped, sound system, TV screen-rockin party bus from NYC to and from PNC. You don't need to worry about finding a ride, staying sober, or even learning how the hell to get to "Holmdel, New Jersey" on a train. Really, all you've gotta do is buy a ticket, show up, stumble into and out of the venue, and we'll take care of the rest - don't that sound like it's worth a little money spent on your peace of mind? (And - we can't stress this part enough - not having to draw straws to see which one of your friends has to stay sober at a SLAYER show!) The bus will run to and from the Hammerstein Ballroom - 34th St. and 8th Ave. Boarding begins at 2:45pm, and the bus will leave at 3:00pm PROMPTLY - we know you guys tend to be late to everything, but, really, you're gonna be super bummed out if you pay for a ticket and then miss the bus (and we're not going to refund you), so please take us at our word on this one. Refreshments are not served on the bus, but we encourage you to bring your own. BYOB! The bus will leave the PNC Parking Lot half an hour after the show ends - once again, we are serious, and you will be even more bummed out if you pay for a ticket and then get stranded in New Jersey after the show, so please proceed as efficiently as you can towards the bus after the show. The plus side is, you will find yourself back in NYC afterwards in plenty of time to get a decent night's sleep (or to just keep raging with all the awesome people you met on the bus). Don't miss out on your seat on the bus! - you really, really don't want to take New Jersey Transit and then wait for a shuttle that may or may not be running that day. (Trust us - we've done it, and it sucks). If you have any questions email Sancho@rocksoff.com

Shelter - Rocks Off
June 02, 2018 - New York

Shelter -- alongside Snapcase, Strife, Earth Crisis, and Sick of It All -- were one of the biggest hardcore bands of the mid-'90s. Led by singer Ray Cappo through a variety of lineups and stylistic shifts, the group preached Hare Krishna religious concepts and played high-energy rock music to audiences worldwide; looking likely, for a time, to achieve huge crossover success in the mainstream, which never quite materialized. Still, they raised questions never before pondered by punk rock; offering up a variety of answers culled from Vedic tradition and scriptures, which were embraced for a handful of years by many fans and challenged by many of Cappo's punk peers. Ray Cappo came to underground prominence fronting the late-'80s straight-edge group Youth of Today, a band that would eventually spawn Judge, Project X, and major-label rockers Civ,Quicksand, and Rival Schools. He was the vocalist, lyricist, and spokesperson for the group, who led the pack of '80s positive-thinking, drug-free living, vegetarian hardcore punk "youth crew" outfits. He co-founded New York's Revelation Records, which later relocated to Southern California. But, by the end of Youth of Today's run, he felt dissatisfied, feeling a spiritual yearning. He began to study the teachings of the Hare Krishna movement, and after a trip to India, returned a full-fledged Krishna Consciousness devotee. He decided to make one last album to preach these ideas. So, together with friends from the band 76% Uncertain, he crafted an album's worth of spiritually challenging, thought-provoking songs, while moving away from Youth of Today's screaming vocal style into more melodic singing.

"Natural Habitat" an exhibition by Jeremy and Jayde Fish - Spoke NYC
June 02, 2018 - New York

Natural Habitat dual artist exhibition by Jeremy & Jayde Fish Opening Reception: June 2nd, 6 - 8pm On view: June 2nd - 23rd, 2018 Spoke NYC is pleased to present Natural Habitat, a dual person exhibition by San Francisco-based artists Jeremy and Jayde Fish. Natural Habitat will be their inaugural exhibition at Spoke NYC, in which they both look towards the past and present to draw inspiration from their lineage of artisanal histories, memories and interpersonal relationships. Jeremy Fish’s body of work draws inspiration from his ancestors, looking to the master craftsmen and creatives in his family. Notably, Fish’s great grandfather, was the personal tailor to Theodore Roosevelt, making both his matrimonial and burial suits. As an homage to his kin, Jeremy Fish has created a series of pen and ink drawings in his signature vintage anthropomorphic style, working in a limited palette of black, white, yellow and sepia. Each drawing is like a snapshot or portrait which tells a story about the artist’s love for his wife Jayde Fish, their cat Mrs. Irbis Brown Fish and the various artistic branches of his mother’s Italian family tree. Jayde Fish’s work references memories of her past as well as stories of adventures that she has taken along the way. Her grandmother was an embroiderer and quilt maker, and instilled a deep appreciation for intricate detail. This influence is readily apparent in Jayde Fish’s ink drawings, who uses meticulous line work to create complex cage like animals and structures. The artist’s highly stylized environments appear to be from an alternate realm full of surreal adventures featuring unicorns, aliens and elaborate fashion. Additionally, the artists will be exhibiting his-and-hers pajamas, slippers, bags and additional accessories, as well as a sitting area, allowing the viewer to daydream what a typical day in the artists stylized world is like. Please join us Saturday, June 2nd from 6 - 8pm for the opening reception of Natural Habitat. The artists will be in attendance. Brand new limited edition letterpress prints will be available in person at the opening. For more information, or additional images, please email us at nyc@spoke-art.com.

Based on one of Roald Dahls most poignantly quirky stories, James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale.  Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.


The possibilities for creative costuming and puppetry abound, and young actors will love playing the outlandish and larger-than-life human and insect characters.

Call out Series - House of Yes
June 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

Rita McBride: Particulates - Dia Art Foundation

Wicked - Gershwin Theatre
Through June 03, 2018 - New York

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you'll never forget.

Skintight - The Laura Pels Theatre
Through June 03, 2018 - New York

Roundabout reunites writer Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) and director Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews) for Skintight, a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex. Reeling from her ex-husband's engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who's 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi's son. Who's also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside. Joshua Harmon's Skintight will begin performances on May 31, 2018 and open officially on June 21, 2018. This is a limited engagement Off-Broadway. A Roundabout commission. Skintight is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Joshua Harmon's Skintight was developed at Roundabout with support from the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation. Roundabout's work with new and emerging playwrights and directors, as well as development of new work, is made possible by Katheryn Patterson and Tom Kempner. We gratefully acknowledge the Roundabout Leaders for New Works: Alec Baldwin, James Costa and John Archibald, Linda L. D'Onofrio, Peggy and Mark Ellis, Jodi Glucksman, Sylvia Golden, Hess Foundation, Inc., Judith and Douglas Krupp, K. Myers, Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater, Laura S. Rodgers, Seedlings Foundation, Mary Solomon, Lauren and Danny Stein, Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, and Dr. Leonard Tow.

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.

That's because the weddings of Sean Bell and Justine Damond, lost in a hail of bullets, recall the tragedy of Lorca's "Blood Wedding."

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through June 04, 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.

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.

The Diana Tapes - HERE
Through June 10, 2018 - New York

What Will the Neighbors Say? will present the New York Premiere of James Clements’ THE DIANA TAPES, directed by Wednesday Sue Derrico (HVMLET for She NYC Arts Festival) at HERE (145 6th Avenue), May 24-June 10. Performances will run Tuesday through Saturday at 7pm, with matinee performances on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2pm. Tickets ($25/$15 for under 30 & seniors) are available for purchase in advance at www.thedianatapes.com. The performance will run approximately 70 minutes, with no intermission. This production is part of SubletSeries@HERE, a curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support. The Diana Tapes presents the true story of one of the greatest media scandals in British history – the publication of Andrew Morton's book about Princess Diana, which ended her marriage and shook the monarchy to its core. Based on the real transcripts from the Princess’ tapes, the show moves between Morton’s office, the sitting room where the Princess recorded her darkest secrets onto cassettes, and the dingy West London cafe where one of her best friends surreptitiously handed them over. The subterfuge and deception are brought to a scorching climax that changed celebrity, privacy, and the Windsor family forever. The question remains: who was the victim, and who the victor? The production gives voice to a woman so often defined by images and archetypes, and instead presents her complex and multifaceted reality. It exemplifies the mission of WWTNS? to present new angles on misrepresented stories. The cast will feature Ana Cristina Schuler as Diana, Princess of Wales, James Clements as Andrew Morton, Jorge Morales Pico? as James Colthurst, and Sam Hood Adrain as Michael O’Mara. The creative team will include Props, Set & Costume Design by Madeline Wall, Sound Design by Jorge Morales Pico?, and Lighting Design by Elizabeth M. Stewart with Dialect Coach Jordan Yanco and Stage Manager Hannah Delmore. This World Premiere production retains select elements from the workshop production design by Mairi MacInnes and Adam Welsh. After completing the New York run at HERE, The Diana Tapes will transfer to London's Stockwell Playhouse for a three-week engagement, June 26-July 13. The London production has already received coverage in Harper's Bazaar, the Evening Standard, International Business Times and the Daily Express, among others. The Diana Tapes was originally workshopped at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it was featured in the Daily Mail, The Evening Times and the Scotsman, in addition to STV and BBC Radio, and was shortlisted for the Holden Street Theatre Award. Subsequent workshop runs in Providence, New York and Toronto were met with acclaim, with critics calling the production “intricate and compelling,” (BroadwayWorld) “entrancing,” (Motif) “tense and provocative,” (The Providence Journal) and “timely and relevant” (Mooney on Theatre).

Experienced Hustle w/ Alessandra Marconi - Brooklyn Studios for Dance
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. Recognizing the close knit connection that social dance has between communication and society felt to her like second nature. 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.

Often working with pictures archived in a family photo album, Cabral has opted to recreate these very scenes from memory, allowing the fallibility of recollected events to color her subject-matter with a lush sheen of exotic colors. This syncretic blend of photography, acrylics, and mixed-media painting lends her works a uniqueness which can't be wholly reduced to any one medium or technique she puts to use, or even the photos that provided an original source of inspiration. Cabral's Dumper majestically captures the way memory shades into fantasy. A group of figures is seated in an industrial "dumper." Their faces are all but indiscernible, hued by a popping fluorescent blue. Almost eerily, each figure appears to be looking away from viewer's vantage point — less like they were posing than as if they were transplanted from another pictorial plane to where the presently sit. In the background, psychedelic swaths of primary colors seem to dynamically converge, creating a sense of place whose elementary parts seem collaged from dream.

Toni Altenstrasser - Agora Gallery
Through June 12, 2018 - New York

Life Is But A Dream Based in Passau, Germany, artist toNI Altenstrasser uses oil and acrylic paints, pen, and chalk pastels to create enigmatic, abstract compositions. In his search for new methods of expression, Altenstrasser intuitively and repeatedly revises his works, this process often becoming his primary subject matter. Using gestural marks to render animal forms and figures, Altenstrasser's works make visible unseen layers of the human condition. In his brooding composition titled Thought II, Altenstrasser divides the composition into realms of opposing black and white. Rogue marks and lines are layered vigorously in an effort to obscure an unknown image. The artist's Rote Giraffe für W.Parker is a more lighthearted picture imaging a small, crude red giraffe floating on an eggplant and auburn background. A blue heart-like shape in the corner of the picture plane further reveals the playful nature of the work. Finally, Market-place employs a bustling composition with expressive figures amid shadowy, bodily outlines. Richly textured and full of movement, the image captures the dynamism of a busy, hurried market.

Olga Loschinina - Agora Gallery
Through June 12, 2018 - New York

Life Is But A Dream The photographs of Olga Loschinina depict stunning scenery from around the globe. From the extreme climates of the Antarctic ice fields to the deserts of Africa, from oceans and mountains and everywhere in between, Olga is able to combine her love of travel with a passion for photography, creating breathtaking images that appear almost fantastical in their natural splendor. Whether shrouded in mist or bathed in the pigmented rays of a once-in-a-lifetime sunrise, Olga is adept at capturing the delicate color and elusive atmosphere of these locations with her lens. She says her goal in her work is to witness different aspects of life, from bustling metropolises to far flung environs, encapsulating and reviving them so that she can prolong the experience for herself and her viewers. She also utilizes her images to underscore the connection between humans and the natural world. Born in Moscow, Olga used to work in finance but also studied photography in photography schools. She has been a practicing photographer for four years, and one can find her work displayed in New York, Switzerland, and Russia.

Amber Warren - Agora Gallery
Through June 12, 2018 - New York

New York based artist Amber Warren uses diverse materials such as resin, modeling paste, metal, and paper to create dimensional, abstract paintings. Drawing her subject matter from nature and often incorporating found objects into her pictures, Warren's compositions are richly textured and boldly gestural. Her nonrepresentational works push the boundaries of two dimensional painting, the layering of pigments and materials creating a sense of both physical and psychological depth. In Warren's Wave and Flame , frothy swirls of tonal pigment capture the visceral sensations of water and fire respectively. The tactile surfaces vary in opacity and reflectiveness as thick swaths and thin pools of pigment coincide. The artist's mixed media collage titled Paper Garden 1 is an especially densely textured picture. Magenta, lavender, orange, and red curls of pigment populate the canvas in an abstract whirlpool. Finally, After juxtaposes neon pink and yellow splashes of paint with darker puddles of black and navy. Forming thin rivulets, the colors merge into rippled, wet patches, creating layers of interest and defying the expectations of the two dimensional picture plane.

Descending into Escapism Series 1: Vaydra Wright - Agora Gallery
Through June 12, 2018 - NYC

Vaydra Wright’s digital collages utilize layers of color and pattern to create surreal compositions responding to psychological stresses endured by the artist. Created as coping strategies, these works are visual documents of the sensations the artist feels during periods of dissociation, a psychological condition in which one detaches from reality in response to traumatic events and triggering stimuli. The spiraling, inverted, kaleidoscopic works often function as Rorschach tests and represent the psychological repercussion of trauma through digitally manipulated abstractions. Working in complete isolation and without formal training, Vaydra’s works are entirely personal depictions of her unique experiences. In her works titled A Kaleidoscope View of Inner City Buildings and Barren Landscape, Vaydra layers geometrical grids and architectural geometries with rippling reflections, the imagery mirrored into infinity to create compositions that are at once claustrophobic and expanding, binding and limitless. Original Bug Series features illusionistic shapes leaping from the picture plane, while Reflection of My Stolen Childhood captures dueling sensations of balance and chaos in its Technicolor swirls. Finally, a series of monochrome inkblot compositions captures the various stages of dissociation, the works coexisting as pieces of a larger puzzle that together, reflect the tenor of the artist’s daily struggles.

Life Is But A Dream - Agora Gallery
Through June 12, 2018 - NYC

This spring Agora Gallery proudly presents Life Is But A Dream, a group show exploring the surreality of memory and identity in a world too often constructed to resemble a mere product of the shelf of popular culture. Comprising 17 artists, the primary link joining them together is how memory can be reshaped by the imagination. These artists all share in examining the content of what they remember, with social and familial life acting as a lens through which they reexamine recollected moments. Maria José Cabral, toNI Altenstrasser, Jennifer Morrow, Olivia O'Keeffe, Margret Carde, and Katja Yoon use memoried experience as the raw material out of which they synthesize dream-like scenes. By contrast, Gottfried Roemer and Benny De Grove use the realist precedent of the photograph to create defamiliarized landscapes and portraits. Amber Warren and GLIL advantageously use mixed-media and collage techniques, respectively, to realize free-associative commentary on their chosen subjects. And Svetlana Nelson, Olga Loschinina, Samantha Messias, Jutta Schulte, Ifat Shatzky, Paciel González, and Satoco Yamamoto utilize a wide breadth of media to challenge the presumption that memory can only be understood as something that occupies the past. Life Is But a Dream will open May 22nd with a reception Thursday, May 24, 2018 6-8 PM and will remain on view until June 12, 2018. Entrance is free.

Learning Through Art Presents A Year With Children 2018 - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through June 13, 2018 - Upper East Side

An annual exhibition that presents art by students participating in the Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art (LTA) program. Originally conceived as Learning to Read Through the Arts, the program was founded in 1970 by Natalie Kovner Lieberman in response to the elimination of art and music programs in New York City public schools. LTA has encouraged curiosity, critical thinking, and collaborative investigation at the museum, in the classroom, and beyond, serving nearly 150,000 children. In the 2017-18 school year, thirteen teaching artists facilitated sixteen residencies in eleven New York City public schools, working closely with classroom teachers to develop projects that promote visual literacy while exploring and making connections with ideas and themes related to the school’s curriculum.

The participating schools are: in the Bronx, PS 86 (Kingsbridge Heights); in Brooklyn, PS 8 (Brooklyn Heights) and PS 9 (Prospect Heights); in Manhattan, PS 28 (Washington Heights), PS 38 and PS 375/Mosaic Preparatory Academy (East Harlem); in Queens, PS 88 (Ridgewood), PS 130 (Bayside), PS 144 (Rego Park), and PS 317 (Rockaway Park); and in Staten Island, PS 48 (Grasmere).

Lewis and Tolkien: Of Wardrobes and Rings - Sheen Center
Through June 14, 2018 - New York

The New York premiere of a new play by David Payne J.R.R Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were lions of 20th century British fantasy, giants of a literary genre that reached millions of readers, young and old alike, with mystifying adventures to entertain and deep truths to move people's hearts.C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) and J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings) were also distinguished faculty members at Oxford University and participants in a literary group known as The Inklings. Their robust philosophical discourse served an uncommon friendship that was not without its differences. Life's circumstances and sometimes unresolved disagreements forced an uncomfortable season of estrangement. In Wardrobes and Rings we join "Jack" and "Tollers," as they knew each other, at Oxford's historic Eagle and Child pub for one last visit, tempered by thawing humor, confession and reconciliation. Remarkable lives. Memorable theatre.

Rise of the Butterfly - Gallery Henoch
Through June 15, 2018 - New York City

" Rise of the Butterfly has arrived. More than an art show, we are working with a number of pioneers from the women’s movement and human rights campaigns, studying those in displacement and enslavement. Curated by Anthony Haden-Guest with Introduction to the Collection by Gloria Steinem, the Rise of the Butterfly Art Show confronts Human Trafficking on a global scale by merging fine art with the humanitarian goal of freeing captive people. At Rise of the Butterfly, we believe art has the power to fuel freedom and awareness -- and we have the unique opportunity to demonstrate why each life is precious. The Rise of the Butterfly Art Show mirrors the philosophy and life’s mission of the internationally acclaimed photographer Layla Love, who will be exhibiting a collection of 70 artworks across seven walls in a two-story , each curated with a specific theme, print style and framing method. Viewers will feel that they are experiencing seven different perspectives. The artist’s intention is to show the multitude of potentials harbored within every being, and that life is to be celebrated through transformation. Love’s artwork has been showcased around the world from Paris Photo to Art Basel, and the upcoming collection is derived from several world tours showcasing Love’s work from South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States. Our supporting shows include: Big Art, a NYC group show by Anthony Haden-Guest; a Rise of the Butterfly event in Houston Texas hosted by mayor Sylvester Turner and Curry Glassell; and in Los Angeles. After the event, shows are scheduled to follow up in major international cities. The styles will span traditional fiber-based darkroom prints hand-produced by Love, to Virtual Reality Composites with holographic qualities. Ideally these works will be displayed in different rooms that are interlocking; otherwise a multitude of walls will suffice in illustrating the multiple perspectives that diversify our life experience. We are operating on the premise that art loses its ego when paired with purpose. The concept of Rise of the Butterfly came about in Gloria Steinem’s living room during a brainstorming session discussing ways to utilize Gloria’s words and Love’s visual art to bring awareness to the value of women into the mainstream. With Gloria’s support, Love has since spent several years building the Rise of the Butterfly foundation to provide support to already-existing nonprofits that we respect. All proceeds from the Rise of the Butterfly Art Show will support our ongoing efforts and benefit these pioneering nonprofits, providing both financial and creative support as well as launching awareness campaigns to amplify their voices."

The concept of Rise of the Butterfly came about in Gloria Steinem’s living room during a brainstorming session discussing ways to utilize Gloria’s words and Love’s visual art to bring awareness to the value of women into the mainstream. With Gloria’s support, Love has since spent several years building the Rise of the Butterfly foundation to provide support to already-existing nonprofits that we respect. All proceeds from the Rise of the Butterfly Art Show will support our ongoing efforts and benefit these pioneering nonprofits, providing both financial and creative support as well as launching awareness campaigns to amplify their voices."

Rise of the Butterfly - Gallery Henoch
Through June 15, 2018 - New York City

" Rise of the Butterfly has arrived. More than an art show, we are working with a number of pioneers from the women’s movement and human rights campaigns, studying those in displacement and enslavement. Curated by Anthony Haden-Guest with Introduction to the Collection by Gloria Steinem, the Rise of the Butterfly Art Show confronts Human Trafficking on a global scale by merging fine art with the humanitarian goal of freeing captive people. At Rise of the Butterfly, we believe art has the power to fuel freedom and awareness -- and we have the unique opportunity to demonstrate why each life is precious. The Rise of the Butterfly Art Show mirrors the philosophy and life’s mission of the internationally acclaimed photographer Layla Love, who will be exhibiting a collection of 70 artworks across seven walls in a two-story , each curated with a specific theme, print style and framing method. Viewers will feel that they are experiencing seven different perspectives. The artist’s intention is to show the multitude of potentials harbored within every being, and that life is to be celebrated through transformation. Love’s artwork has been showcased around the world from Paris Photo to Art Basel, and the upcoming collection is derived from several world tours showcasing Love’s work from South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States. Our supporting shows include: Big Art, a NYC group show by Anthony Haden-Guest; a Rise of the Butterfly event in Houston Texas hosted by mayor Sylvester Turner and Curry Glassell; and in Los Angeles. After the event, shows are scheduled to follow up in major international cities. The styles will span traditional fiber-based darkroom prints hand-produced by Love, to Virtual Reality Composites with holographic qualities.

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.

The Great Leap - Atlantic Theater Company Stage 2
Through June 17, 2018 - New York

San Francisco, spring 1989. Manford Lum, locally renowned on the sidewalk basketball courts of Chinatown, talks his way onto a college team, just before they travel to Beijing for a "friendship" game. When they arrive, China is in the throes of the post-Cultural Revolution era, and Manford must juggle international politics and his own personal history. Inspired by events from her father's life and (short-lived) basketball career, playwright Lauren Yee (The Hatmaker's Wife) makes her Atlantic debut with this tender and sharp-paced play. "Trask's songs have everything: melody, swagger, piano, wit, electric guitar, harmony, fun, angst, a little filth. The band, [Yanowitz & co], combine the look of old-school glam and punk with the one thing the genre currently lacks: youth." – The New Yorker

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.

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.

'Curtains' - Theatre Three

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.

"Life Among the Aryans" by Ishmael Reed - Nuyorican Poets Cafe
Through June 24, 2018 - NEW YORK CITY

"Life Among the Aryans" by Ishmael Reed is a political satire that envisions a future when the downtrodden of the Alt Right realize they'd be better off Black. The play imagines an America when the political pendulum has swung way back. Now the president is Jewish and the head of the FBI is a Black woman, presenting such a nightmare to the far right that they now miss the president they called The Muslim King. The government has enacted reparations to Black Americans for the unpaid labor of their ancestors. This inspires envy and desperation among impecunious members of the Alt-Right. But it also inspires them to a new, uproarious strategy of "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em." The play offers us a cunning satire of White class consciousness. With wordplay and irony, the play reminds us how nowadays, red state ideologues have enthusiastically elected their own exploiters, making them share with Black America the butt end of the economy. In Ishmael Reed's traditional style, every character is a clown. The play uses time-honored techniques of signifyin' to make light of how white folks are oblivious to the irony of their political situation. The cast is a multi-racial ensemble of 14. Rome Neal directs. Performances are May 31 to June 24, Thur-Sat at 7:00 PM, Sun at 3:00 PM. (There is no performance Saturday, June 16.)

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

Saturday Sketching - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through June 30, 2018 - Upper East Side

An annual exhibition that presents art by students participating in the Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art (LTA) program. Originally conceived as Learning to Read Through the Arts, the program was founded in 1970 by Natalie Kovner Lieberman in response to the elimination of art and music programs in New York City public schools. LTA has encouraged curiosity, critical thinking, and collaborative investigation at the museum, in the classroom, and beyond, serving nearly 150,000 children. In the 2017-18 school year, thirteen teaching artists facilitated sixteen residencies in eleven New York City public schools, working closely with classroom teachers to develop projects that promote visual literacy while exploring and making connections with ideas and themes related to the school’s curriculum.

The participating schools are: in the Bronx, PS 86 (Kingsbridge Heights); in Brooklyn, PS 8 (Brooklyn Heights) and PS 9 (Prospect Heights); in Manhattan, PS 28 (Washington Heights), PS 38 and PS 375/Mosaic Preparatory Academy (East Harlem); in Queens, PS 88 (Ridgewood), PS 130 (Bayside), PS 144 (Rego Park), and PS 317 (Rockaway Park); and in Staten Island, PS 48 (Grasmere).

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.

Through June 30, 2018 - Norwalk

This gorgeous new biopic tells the true story of Henry Bates, who risked his life in the perilous Amazon in the 1850s and discovered the “beautiful proof” that supported Darwin’s groundbreaking theories of evolution and natural selection. The film re-creates Bates' 11 challenging years in the Amazon rain forest as he searches for clues about how and why species – butterflies in particular – change and adapt over time to avoid predators. 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/

Clockwork - Pioneer Works
Through July 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

ioneer Works is pleased to present CLOCKWORK, an exhibition by Gerard & Kelly on view May 31 through July 1, 2018. Extending the artists' inquiry of memory and modernist architecture in their ongoing project Modern Living, the exhibition marks the New York premiere of the film Schindler/Glass as well as new works in performance and installation commissioned by Pioneer Works. Gerard & Kelly's Modern Living is a series of performances and videos sited in iconic modernist homes around the world. The artists mine these "ruins" of modernism for their hidden choreographies and radical social experiments. Driven by movement that revolves around a "clock," the project poses a question at once political and personal: "What would a home have to be today to shelter intimacies that do not fit within dominant narratives of family, marriage, or domesticity?"

Clockwork by Gerard & Kelly - Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation
Through July 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

Pioneer Works is pleased to present CLOCKWORK, an exhibition by Gerard & Kelly on view May 31 through July 1, 2018. Extending the artists' inquiry of memory and modernist architecture in their ongoing project Modern Living, the exhibition marks the New York premiere of the film Schindler/Glass as well as a new works in performance and installation commissioned by Pioneer Works. Gerard & Kelly's Modern Living is a series of performances and videos sited in iconic modernist homes around the world. The artists mine these "ruins" of modernism for their hidden choreographies and radical social experiments. Driven by movement that revolves around a "clock," the project poses a question at once political and personal: "What would a home have to be today to shelter intimacies that do not fit within dominant narratives of family, marriage, or domesticity?" CLOCKWORK houses Schindler/Glass (2017), the first film in this series, presented as a two-channel projected image installation within a circular pavilion designed for Pioneer Works' main hall. Featuring performances by L.A. Dance Project and original music by SOPHIE and Lucky Dragons, Schindler/Glass captures the artists' interventions at the Schindler House in West Hollywood, California—arguably the first modern house built in the world—and The Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. Both are what the artists term "auto-architectures," homes the architects built for themselves to shelter relationships as experimental as their designs. The Schindler House was built in 1921 by R.M. Schindler to house two young couples in an early example of communal living, while The Glass House famously sheltered its architect Philip Johnson and his partner David Whitney in a relationship that preceded the Stonewall rebellion and endured for more than 40 years. The loose narrative of the 35-minute film follows a family of siblings as they fall in and out of sync, couple and split, return and regroup across the two sites. The image of two dancers in Philip Johnson's bed hovers on a plane of glass, exposing a gaze that paradoxically does not penetrate the transparent walls but gets trapped in layers of reflection. A roving camera traces arcs of choreography through Schindler's pinwheel architecture, exploring the house as a system for framing intimacies. Dancers chant axioms over rhythmic choreography: "The home is a mathematical equation/The family is a system of regeneration/Relationships like clockwork…" Gerard & Kelly transform Pioneer Works, erected in 1866 as an iron works factory, from a space in which machines were built into a machine for keeping time. An installation of tinted vinyl spread across the windows of the exhibition hall articulates a temporality outside modern clock time. When sunlight aligns with this installation, a performance begins in which dancers enact a score for architectonic movement. The dancers struggle with a foundational problem of both architecture and sculpture: how to get off the floor. As in previous chapters of Modern Living, the choreography for Gerard & Kelly's new work revolves around a "clock"—a set of movements coordinated to the numbers on the face of an analogue clock (12 in front, 6 behind, etc.). Over time, the movement acquires a metronomic, meditative quality, connecting space and memory to the indifferent temporality of the sun. Gerard & Kelly's CLOCKWORK is curated by David Everitt Howe. Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly have collaborated as Gerard & Kelly since 2003. Their installations and performances use choreography, video, and sculpture to address questions of sexuality, memory, and the formation of queer consciousness. Recent exhibitions and performances of their work have been presented by the Guggenheim Museum, New Museum, and The Kitchen (New York); Festival d'Automne, Palais de Tokyo, and Centre Pompidou (Paris); Chicago Architecture Biennial; and the Made in LA Biennial at the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles). Gerard & Kelly completed the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in 2010, and received their MFAs from the University of California, Los Angeles Department of Art in 2013. Gerard & Kelly are the recipients of a 2014 Juried Award from the New York Dance and Performance Awards, also known as the Bessies, and grants from Art Matters, New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, and the Graham Foundation. Their projects have been supported by residencies at the CND Centre national de la danse, Paris; New Museum, New York; and Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, among others. Their work is in the collections of the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and the Guggenheim Museum, New York. Gerard & Kelly live and work in Los Angeles.

This Ain't No Disco - Atlantic Theater Company: Linda Gross Theater
Through July 01, 2018 - New York

World Premiere Musical THIS AIN'T NO DISCO Musical & Lyrics by STEPHEN TRASK & PETER YANOWITZ Book by STEPHEN TRASK & PETER YANOWITZ and RICK ELICE Directed by TRIP CULLMAN Linda Gross Theater, 336 West 20th Street Set against the grit, the garbage strikes, the graffiti of 1979 New York City, This Ain't No Disco tells the story of drifters and dreamers searching for their place in the night world of Studio 54 and Mudd Club. In their uptown/downtown quest for revelry and kinship, every decision is fateful in a city where one's fate can turn on a dime bag. An electrifying new musical from composer/lyricist of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Stephen Trask, along with Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers), directed by Trip Cullman (Atlantic's I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard, Broadway's Six Degrees of Separation). "Trask's songs have everything: melody, swagger, piano, wit, electric guitar, harmony, fun, angst, a little filth. The band, [Yanowitz & co], combine the look of old-school glam and punk with the one thing the genre currently lacks: youth." – The New Yorker

Maia Cruz Palileo: Meandering Curves of a Creek - Pioneer Works
Through July 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

Meandering Curves of a Creek is Maia Cruz Palileo's first solo institutional exhibition, comprised of a selection of recent paintings and drawings that continue the artist's ongoing exploration of her personal identity, cultural heritage and feelings of multiplicity as a Filipino-American. This body of work traces a direct lineage to the ethnographic photographs of Dean C. Worcester, an American zoologist turned Secretary of the Interior who traveled to the Philippines at the turn of the nineteenth century. Palileo unearthed Worcester's dehumanizing images in Chicago's Newberry Library during the summer of 2017, and in turn used these photographs as a point of creative departure for transposing a bygone past into an intimately imagined world where history, myth, and superstition intersect. In creating these works, Palileo also looked to Damián Domingo's watercolors of people living in Manila during the 1820s, and Isabelo De Los Reyes's 1889 manuscript El Folk-lore Filipino, a collection of texts which debased the fraught assertion that the Philippines lacked civilized culture prior to Spanish colonization.

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. Administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Migratory Bird Act prohibited the hunting, killing, trading, and shipping of migratory birds. It also regulated the nation's commercial plume trade, which had decimated many American bird species to the point of near extinction.

Single tickets, as well as subscription packages, are on sale now at www.operasaratoga.org.   One of the most popular operettas across the globe, THE MERRY WIDOW returns to Opera Saratoga for the first time in thirty years. Hanna Glawari, the Merry Widow, is beautiful and rich... and she's captivated every man in the country. But Hanna is looking for true love. Will she be able to find a suitor that is not only after her wealth? Will the nation of Pontevedro slip into economic collapse if she marries a foreigner? Will all those dancing girls prove too distracting for the audience?! Franz Lehár's magical score features the famous "Vilja" song, the "Merry Widow Waltz," and many more beloved melodies. The Merry Widow, which was composed in 1905, ushered in a new era of operettas in which the waltz was used for romantic plot purposes, and was danced as much as sung. Opera Saratoga's new production continues the company's Opera-in-Motion initiative, in which dance is prominently integrated into one production each summer. The Merry Widow will be directed and choreographed by John de los Santos, and conducted by Anthony Barrese, both making their company debuts. Soprano Cecilia Violetta López (Beatrice in Il Postino, 2016) returns to star in the title role, alongside the company debuts of baritone Alex Lawrence as Danilo, tenor Scott Quinn as Camille, and the return of baritone Andy Papas as Baron Zeta.   The second production of the season will be a double bill of contemporary operas that revolve around themes of obsession, desire, competition and the need to win as seen through the lens of two very different sports - Thoroughbred Horse Racing, and Finch Sitting!  David Alan Miller, the Grammy Award winning Music Director of the Albany Symphony, joins the company to lead this special production.   The first half of the double bill will be the World Premiere of a new chamber version of VINKENSPORT, or THE FINCH OPERA. Originally commissioned by Dawn Upshaw for the Graduate Vocal Arts Program at the Bard Conservatory, where it premiered in February of 2010, this opera was one of the earliest collaborations between David T. Little and Royce Vavrek, whose critically acclaimed works also include JFK and Dog Days. Vinkensport is a bittersweet comedy in one act that explores the nature of competition and the need to win through the frame of an obscure Flemish folk sport, Finch-Sitting. We see a motley assortment of contestants battle to see who has the most melodious bird. As they compete, the joys, sorrows, delusions and all-too-stark realities of their trainers are revealed. The second half of the double bill will feature the American Premiere of ROCKING HORSE WINNER. This critically acclaimed chamber opera by Gareth Williams and Anna Chatterton received its world premiere last season at Tapestry Opera in Toronto.  A modern adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's short story, Rocking Horse Winner explores the relationship between Paul and his emotionally distant mother. Paul becomes dangerously obsessed with solving the "bad luck" of his family in order to win his mother's love. His pursuit awakens a strange magic that connects him not only to luck, but also to powerful voices only he can hear - voices that tell him which horses will win at the track. Rocking Horse Winner is an intimate, psychological look at love, "luck", and greed. Internationally acclaimed tenors Scott Quinn and Tyler Nelson are featured in this double-bill, alongside members of Opera Saratoga's nationally acclaimed Young Artist Program - the second oldest mentorship program for emerging opera singers in the country, under the leadership of Laurie Rogers. The production will prominently feature these gifted singers as part of Opera Saratoga's commitment to providing emerging professional artists important performing opportunities to advance their careers. The production will be directed by Michael Hidetoshi Mori in his company debut.   Winner of both the New York Drama Critic Circle award as the Best Musical Play and the Pulitzer Prize in Music in 1950, THE CONSUL is an American masterpiece that ran on Broadway for eight months before premiering at La Scala, followed by productions at opera houses around the globe. Olin Downes hailed the Broadway premiere in The New York Times as "a smash hit" and "an opera of eloquence, momentousness, and intensity of expression...written from the heart, with a blazing sincerity and a passion of human understanding... It is torn out of the life of the present-day world, and poses an issue which mercilessly confronts humanity today. And this is done with a new wedding of the English language with music in a way which is singable, intensely dramatic and poetic by turns, and always of beauty."Almost 70 years later, Gian Carlo Menotti's riveting opera still delivers a punch as powerful and timely as its subject matter - the struggle for freedom against oppression, and the maddening nature of unrelenting bureaucracy. Set in an unnamed European city, political dissident John Sorel is on the run from the secret police. After he escapes the country, his devoted wife Magda clashes with the bureaucracy at the Consulate while trying to obtain an exit visa for her family. The emotional high point of the opera comes when Magda, thwarted in her quest for a visa, addresses the Consul's secretary in "To this we've come," a stirring lament over the world's indifference to inhumanity and suffering. The suspenseful narrative surprises with several magical touches and is buoyed by a melodic score in which love, hope, and redemption all play their part. Last seen at Opera Saratoga (as Lake George Opera) in 1984, The Consul remains as timely as when it was written, taking on renewed relevance for contemporary audiences. Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson directs this new production, conducted by Andrew Bisantz (Le nozze di Figaro, 2016). The production will feature two distinguished alumni of Opera Saratoga's Young Artist Program who have become fast-rising stars: soprano Meghan Kasanders, and mezzo soprano Jennifer Panara. Critically acclaimed artists making their debuts with Opera Saratoga in this production include mezzo soprano Deborah Nansteel, tenor Tyler Nelson, and baritone Wes Mason.   In addition to the opera productions, Opera Saratoga will present a variety of free and ticketed concerts and master classes from May 26th through July 15th at venues throughout the region. These events will include two concerts directly connected to the summer operas: Vienna, City of My Dreams - a concert featuring scenes from operettas by Johann Strauss, Franz Lehár, Emmerich Kálmán, Franz von Suppé, Leo Fall and more; and Refugee Voices, a concert of vocal music by refugee composers - artists who had to flee from their home countries due to religious or political persecution.    The complete performance schedule for the 2018 Summer Festival is available online.

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.

Board of Education Supreme Court case, Little Rock, Arkansas became ground zero in the fight to integrate public schools across America.

Integrating Little Rock Central High School would become an important and dramatic prerequisite step in implementing the new federal law. Successfully completing the school year would become its ultimate test. N.B. Strong language To receive and email alert when tickets go on sale, sign up here!

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.

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.

Reeling from her ex-husband's engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who's 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi's son. Who's also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside.

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.

Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms - New York Historical Society
Through September 02, 2018 - Upper West Side

The first internationally touring exhibition devoted to Rockwell's iconic depictions of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Four Freedoms launches at the New-York Historical Society in May. The traveling exhibition, which was organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, explores how Rockwell's 1943 paintings—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want—gave visual voice to Roosevelt's call to the defense of freedom worldwide and took their place among the most enduring images in the history of American art. In addition to Rockwell's Four Freedoms, the exhibition encompasses numerous other examples of painting, illustration, and more, by both Rockwell and a broad range of his contemporaries, as well as historical documents, photographs, videos, and artifacts; interactive digital displays; and immersive settings, some using virtual-reality technology, all on the theme of the Four Freedoms, from FDR's initial enunciation of them as a reason to enter the War to their powerful post-war legacy. Following New-York Historical, the exhibition travels to The Henry Ford, Dearborn, MI; The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, Washington, D.C.; Mémorial de Caen, Normandy, France; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX ; and the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, MA.

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.

Madison Square Park Conservancy Announces Artist Diana Al-Hadid’s First Major Commissioned Outdoor Public Art Exhibition - Madison Square Park
Through September 03, 2018 - New York

Madison Square Park Conservancy Announces Artist Diana Al-Hadid’s First Major Commissioned Outdoor Public Art Exhibition Date: May 14, 2018 through September 3, 2018. Madison Square Park Conservancy announces its thirty-sixth exhibition, Delirious Matter by artist Diana Al-Hadid. Six new sculptures will be installed across Madison Square Park’s central Oval Lawn, peripheral lawns, and northern reflecting pool. Delirious Matter is the artist’s first major public art project. It will be on view from May 14, 2018- September 3, 2018. In spring 2018, artist Diana Al-Hadid (American, b. Aleppo, Syria 1981, lives and works in Brooklyn) will create newly commissioned sculptures in Madison Square Park. Two wall works will be combined with rows of hedges to form a room suggesting the elegiac beauty of deteriorating structures nestled into plant material. Three reclining female figures, titled Synonym, sit on plinths and will be displayed on the surrounding lawns. In the Park’s reflecting pool, the artist will realize a site-specific sculptural bust of a female figure perched atop a fragmented mountain. Al-Hadid is best known for creating work using traditional and contemporary sculpture materials and processes in unfamiliar ways that pivot amongst architecture, figuration, and abstraction. Despite the eroded appearance, the process is additive. Al-Hadid devised a distinctive process that is, in her words, “a blend between fresco and tapestry.” Delirious Matter is the first project by the artist and the first Conservancy commission to unite sculpture with plant materials.

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.

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 invited to write letters to future museumgoers in a dedicated area in the gallery.

Susan York Foundation - The Drawing Center
Through October 18, 2018 - Soho

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence

Haupt Conservatory evoking the gardens and landscapes that inspired O’Keeffe as well as the complex story of the flora and unique ecology of Hawai‘i.

In the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, children and their families will be introduced to plants represented in O’Keeffe’s paintings and tropical food plants of Hawai‘i. Families will receive field notebooks and follow a trail, observing and drawing nature as O’Keeffe did in her work. Children will explore the botanical science of plant structure and create paintings.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Visions of Hawai'I - NY Botancial Gardens
Through October 28, 2018 - Bronx

Pioneering American modernist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887–1986) conveyed a distinct sense of place with innovative depictions of her surroundings, from stark New Mexican landscapes to New York cityscapes. Yet flowers and plants were subjects that engaged O'Keeffe throughout her career. Curated by Theresa Papanikolas, Ph.D., of the Honolulu Museum of Art, this landmark exhibition will offer a rare focus on 20 of O'Keeffe's depictions of Hawai'i from a nine-week sojourn in 1939 while on commission to produce images for a Hawaiian Pineapple Company promotional campaign. A lush exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory of Hawaiian flora and a stunning display in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Art Gallery that includes more than 15 of O'Keeffe's Hawai'i paintings—not seen together in New York since their debut in 1940—will spotlight a transformative experience in the legendary artist's life, revealing O'Keeffe's deeply felt impressions and the enduring influence of the Islands' dramatic landscapes and exotic plants.

For Kids: A Closer Look: Georgia O'Keeffe and Hawai'I - NY Botancial Gardens

The Long Run - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through November 04, 2018 - New York

Floor Four, The David Geffen Galleries Innovation in art is often characterized as a singular event—a bolt of lightning that strikes once and forever changes what follows. The Long Run provides an alternate view: by chronicling the continued experimentation of artists long after their breakthrough moments, it suggests that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio. Each work in this presentation exemplifies an artist’s distinct evolution. For some, this results from continually testing the boundaries of a given medium, for others it reflects the pressures of social, economic, and political circumstances. Often, it is a combination of both. The Long Run includes monographic galleries and rooms that bring together artists across a broad range of backgrounds and approaches. All the artists in this presentation—drawn entirely from MoMA’s collection—are united by a ceaseless desire to make meaningful work, year after year, across decades. They include Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Joan Jonas, Helen Levitt, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, and many others.

Wild Bees: Photographs by Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman - Bruce Museum
Through November 11, 2018 - Greenwich

The exhibition Wild Bees features exquisite color photographs of native bees in their natural habitats, along with an exploration of their varied lifestyles. The photographs are part of an ongoing wild bee project undertaken by photojournalist and writer Paula Sharp and nature photographer Ross Eatman, who began documenting wild bees inhabiting New York's Rockefeller State Park Preserve and neighboring Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in 2014. Their lenses capture in beautiful detail the tremendous variety of shapes, colors and sizes of the insects. The essential role bees play in our planet’s health also comes into view. Wild bees are important pollinators of wildflowers, garden flowers and commercial crops including fruit trees, berries, melons and garden vegetables. Although domesticated honeybees often are used to pollinate cultivated plants, wild bees are able to pollinate many flowers and crops that honey bees cannot. The exhibition will include spectacular views of a variety of pinned bee specimens magnified by a video microscope, as well as three detailed, enlarged models of wild bees, an interactive bee Identification guide, and examples of a few wild bee homes.

Through November 23, 2018 - Setauket-East Setauket

The remarkable true story of General George Washington’s Setauket Spy Ring has come to life in books, exhibits and even in a new television series. Now Long Islanders, and people from around the globe, can discover and relive history for themselves in an ingenious new outdoor adventure which will take nature enthusiasts, athletes, and history lovers to a whole new level.The brainchild behind this interactive historical experience is local historian, Margo Arceri, a Strong’s Neck resident who has spent years researching the Culper Spy Ring and its effects on the American Revolutionary War on Long Island.“The Culper Spy Ring is about average people doing extraordinary things,” states Margo Arceri. “These brave men and women, who risked their lives, have changed the course of history. It’s about time they get the recognition they deserve. Tri-Spy is a fun way for people to be active and to learn about the Culper Spy Ring and our Revolutionary War past.”Arceri, who is also a historical educator working in conjunction with the Three Village Historical Society in Setauket, will now act as a guide taking cyclists, walkers and kayakers through the actual trails where the British and Patriots once roamed. Those participating will follow in the actual footsteps of the Culper Spy Ring, and along the way, historical places of interest will be pointed out and discussed. There will be three options to choose from: bike, walk and kayak tour. The biking adventure will be a fifteen mile trek, and the walking tour a three mile trek.The walk can accommodate up to twenty four people and the bike tour can accommodate 12 people. The kayak adventure is by appointment only and is an estimated four hour tour. Those participating in the kayaking tour will have the opportunity to visit the proposed site of the famous “Nancy’s clothesline” where Anna Smith Strong hung petticoats and handkerchiefs as a means of passing along secret information and see the home where Benjamin Tallmadge was born. Some sites to be visited along the tours are the Strong Family Cemetery, the creek at Conscience Bay, Setauket Village Green, Patriot’s Rock, the c.1750 Tyler-Jayne Tavern, the 1729 Caroline Church of Brookhaven, and one of the oldest surviving structures in Setauket, the c.1695 Timothy Smith House. Several 19th century homes, churches and other structures will be seen as well, including the 1812 Setauket Presbyterian Church, and the c.1825 General John Roe Satterly House. The historic Three Villages, comprised of the Setaukets, Stony Brook and the incorporated villages of Old Field and Poquott, was settled as a farming community in 1655, and later became known for its shipbuilding. Its rich history is preserved at the Three Village Historical Society, which is also the home of the Society’s newest and ongoing exhibit SPIES!  For more information visit www.culper.com.

'Pandas' - Maritime Aquarium
Through December 29, 2018 - Norwalk

This gorgeous new biopic tells the true story of Henry Bates, who risked his life in the perilous Amazon in the 1850s and discovered the “beautiful proof” that supported Darwin’s groundbreaking theories of evolution and natural selection. The film re-creates Bates' 11 challenging years in the Amazon rain forest as he searches for clues about how and why species – butterflies in particular – change and adapt over time to avoid predators. 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/

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

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

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

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur - The American Museum of Natural History
Through January 19, 2020 - Upper West Side

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

Connected Worlds - New York Hall of Science
Through January 31, 2020 - Flushing Meadows, Queens

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.
