June 06, 2018 - Union Square

In the rubble of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Ricans and ultrarich "Puertopians" are locked in a pitched struggle over how to remake the island.

The night will include a video from JunteGente, art build, community tables, and a book signing by Naomi Klein after the discussion.

Goolis - Club Groove
June 06, 2018 - New York

Goolis burst onto the scene in the Spring of 2016 with the breakout video single "Times," followed up weeks later by the complete visual album Goolis Presents Mr. Goolis. Each song was accompanied by whimsical, hallucinogenic, and hilariously crafted videos produced, cut, and directed by Goolis. Still having never performed live, Goolis went back into the studio to create the second 2016 release, Goolis Presents RIDIGOOLIS. Exploring wild new territory both musically and lyrically, Goolis provided an audience with another hit single in "Simple Pleasures," and took the music video personas to the next level with his animated cat in "Curiosity," and the Los Angeles Statue of Liberty in "American You." Surrounding the second LP release, Goolis began playing private, and pop-up shows in New York City, and over the course of 2017 became a hit in the downtown Manhattan music scene. 2017 saw the release of the third album, Goolis In Love, recorded in Ghana and Philadelphia. Goolis spent the spring of 2017 in Accra, Ghana working with the rhythm section The Xtreme Volumes. Goolis? ?In? ?Love? ?is an album in love with being in love. It contains all the sentimentality and universality that one expects from a love song, right alongside the fatalistic political satire subtly embedded in these songs. Entering its world is like falling in love: underlying terror and overwhelming ecstasy.

Louis Vanaria - Empire City Casino
June 06, 2018 - Yonkers

Louis Vanaria is a true "Bronx Tale"…born in the Bronx, New York, Louis has always aspired to be a singer/song writer. After hearing about an "open call" audition for the upcoming Robert DeNiro directorial debut film entitled "A Bronx Tale", Louis worked his way in to try to land a singing role, practically on a lark, completely nonchalant. He never anticipated the outcome, and instead he was chosen for the part of "Crazy Mario", a featured role. Soon after that, Louis was cast in the CBS movie of the week "Young at Heart", starring Olympia Dukakis and his boyhood idol, Frank Sinatra. With his singing career put on hold, Louis relocated to Los Angeles after landing a weekly series sitcom on the WB Network in the show entitled "Kirk", starring Kirk Cameron. Louis played the weekly "regular", Eddie Balducci, Kirk's best friend. Forty-three shows later, Louis returned to his first love, singing, and continued to sing in many upscale restaurants such as "Nino's"

Amadou & Mariam - Brooklyn Steel
June 06, 2018 - Brooklyn

Singer Mariam Doumbia and guitarist/vocalist Amadou Bagayoko met more than 30 years ago at the Institute for Young Blind People in Bamako, the capital of Mali, and they've been performing as a duo for almost as long. For years, they've been stars in West Africa and in France, where they now have a home. But that turned out to be just the start for them. Following the release of their 2005 Nonesuch debut, Dimanche a Bamako, the middle-aged, married pair was embraced by a new, multi-generational audience in the U.S. as well as in the U.K. They were welcomed at indie rock-leaning festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella and Glastonbury and have been asked to tour with such artists as former Blur front-man Damon Albarn, on his itinerant revue, Afrika Express; the Scissor Sisters, on a series of English dates; and Coldplay, who've chosen the couple as the opener for their spring '09 U.S. dates. Welcome To Mali, the duo's adventurous new Nonesuch disc, illustrates why.

Dan Abrams, George Stephanopolous… & Abe Lincoln - The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center
June 06, 2018 - New York

One year before his dark-horse bid for the presidency, Abraham Lincoln, a self-taught lawyer, appeared in an Illinois courtroom to defend a 22-year-old accused of murder. The stakes could not have been higher – and not just for the accused. A loss could smash Lincoln's dream of inhabiting the White House. But winning demanded an unholy alliance with an old enemy, a revivalist preacher who had slandered him as an "infidel…too lacking in faith" to hold office.Taking readers into the courtroom battle where Lincoln fought for both his client and his political life, Lincoln's Last Trial reveals the man who would become one of America's admired presidents. Its author, Dan Abrams, is chief legal affairs anchor for ABC news, host of Live PD on A&E Network and a bestselling author. He will be interviewed by George Stephanopolous, chief anchor and chief political correspondent for ABC.

Exhibition Seminar: James Kraft, Willa Cather in New York (June 2018 Session) - Fully Registered - the New York Society Library
June 06, 2018 - New York

Most people read Cather's My Antonía, and perhaps her other writing about 19th-century life on the plains of Nebraska, but go no further. This is disappointing, as Cather is a formidable figure in American literature who wrote many excellent novels exploring complex, controversial places and ideas. The places include New York City, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Quebec City, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and a nineteenth-century plantation in Virginia. The subjects are numerous and include women's role in the professions, the significance of music, adultery, homosexuality, the loss of the pioneer spirit, the Native American and Hispanic aspects of our culture, and, most surprisingly, an account of a female slave's escape to Canada, a novel Toni Morrison wrote about in Playing in the Dark: Whiteness and the Literary Imagination.

Yet, that's exactly what Leon Vitali did after his acclaimed performance as 'Lord Bullingdon' in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (1975). The young actor surrendered his thriving career to become Kubrick's loyal right-hand man. For more than two decades, Leon played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping Kubrick make and maintain his legendary body of work.

June 06, 2018 - New York

Frank Turner has announced details of his forthcoming seventh studio album entitled Be More Kind available on May 4th via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor UK /Interscope Records. The album is available for pre-order HERE and those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of "1933" and the previously released track "There She Is" from the 2017 release Songbook. Months after the release of Songbook, a career-spanning retrospective which also saw reworked versions of tracks from across the past decade, Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old. It's a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion and the political and the personal, with the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner's sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades. Be More Kind is produced by Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, formerly of psychedelic-rock Texans White Denim, and Florence And The Machine and Halsey collaborator Charlie Hugall. "I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different," says Turner.

Joyner Lucas: I'm Kind of a Big Deal Tour - Irving Plaza
June 06, 2018 - New york

JOYNER LUCAS Joyner Lucas first captured national attention with the complex verbal gymnastics of 2014's "Backwords," followed in 2015 by his debut mixtape, "ALONG CAMEJOYNER" and its extraordinary breakthrough single, "Ross Capicchioni." The track – and its provocative companion visual – chronicles the true story of a Detroit gang shooting, told from the perspectives of both the teenage victim and the shooter himself. "Ross Capicchioni" drew widespread acclaim in throughout the hip-hop universe, with the legendary Busta Rhymes declaring himself so "amazed…I can't even put it into words." The epic video proved a viral sensation, with over 5.3 million streams at YouTube alone. Lucas continued to make his bones with a memorable spot on the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, collaborations alongside such like-minded artists as Jarren Benton, Locksmith, TechN9ne, and Logic, as well as a pair of remarkably strong singles, "Happy Birthday" and "I'm Sorry," both of which saw him displaying astonishing lyrical skills and a striking social consciousness. "I'm Sorry" – included on "508-507-2209" – has proven Lucas' biggest viral success thus far, now approaching 17 million individual views at YouTube alone. Today he continues to garner national attention, but this time it's with his newest phenomenon, "I'm Not Racist" – in which highlights the brutal conversation on racism that no one wants to have. Within a week of its release the video has already been viewed over 9 million times & has received much praise from the likes of CNN, XXL, Complex, Huffington Post and more.

Brooklyn Traditional Slow Jam - The Old Stone House
June 06, 2018 - Brooklyn

This is acoustic instrumental meet-up focuses on tunes in the following traditions: Irish, English, New England Old Time, French Canadian, American Southern, and maybe even Scandinavian. Tunes are those that are typically suitable for contra dancing or other traditional fiddle tunes. This group is intended to provide a musical home for folks interested in playing tunes with other musicians, learning to play by ear and overall increasing their own musical skill. It's fun and welcoming to all ages (see venue for 21+ restrictions) and levels of playing. While we won't play from sheet music, you can certainly use this as a reference on your own! What do you mean by SLOW JAM? All acoustic instruments (e.g., fiddle, mandolin, guitar, cello, etc.) are welcome and the typical format is that we sit in a circle (or circle-ish, depending on the space) and take turns suggesting/leading a song. The songs will typically follow the AABB format (two "A" parts followed by two "B" parts) and we will simply play it over many repeats and if you know it, great (!), but if you don't, you try to figure it out as we go along, maybe picking up a few notes here and there. We'll play tunes at a slow to moderate speed so that they are accessible to a variety of levels. It's fun and can be challenging, but is a great way to improve your playing. You don't have to be a great player, play in tune, or know the songs to give it a shot. If you want to suggest a song, you should either know the song well enough to play it on repeat or we can see if anyone else does!

Roots Nyc | Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge & Special Guest Appearance - Cielo
June 06, 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.

Roxane Gay and Tayari Jones - 92Y
June 06, 2018 - Upper East Side

Roxane Gay's latest book is the memoir Hunger — "an amazing achievement in more ways than I can count," wrote Ann Patchett. "When a wrenching past is confronted with wisdom and bravery, the outcome can be compassion and enlightenment — both for the reader who has lived through this kind of unimaginable pain and for the reader who knows nothing of it." Tayari Jones's new novel, American Marriage, is "a stunning, epic love story filled with breathtaking twists and turns, while bursting with realized and unrealized dreams," wrote Edwidge Danticat. "An exquisite, timely and powerful novel that feels both urgent and indispensable."

Snail Mail, the moniker of 18-year-old Lindsey Jordan, will release its full-length debut in 2018, following the 2016 release of its introductory EP, Habit. The Baltimore singer, songwriter, and guitar prodigy is the latest addition to the renowned Matador Records roster, having bowled them over with her powerhouse vocals, preternaturally wise lyrics, and mind-bogglingly technical compositions. Snail Mail's Habit EP was quickly noticed by both national press outlets and touring bands alike, landing Jordan the kind of attention that most of Mary Timony's guitar students (yes, for real, she's been classically trained for over thirteen years AND studied under fellow Matador guitar wiz Timony, while also juggling hockey practice) can only dream of—a New York Times Sunday Arts cover, a Pitchfork Rising feature, a FADER Gen F feature, a spotlight in V Magazine, and tours with Girlpool, Priests, and Waxahatchee.

Gomez – Bring It on 20th Anniversary - Brooklyn Steel
June 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

"No other record captures that period so perfectly," says Elbow's Guy Garvey. "The concerns of the songs. The stories, the experimental sounds. It was so brave for a band to record themselves at that time: it allowed a direct and undiluted account of the band as aspirational, big-hearted friends in love with making music and each other. It dared us to record ourselves. But they did it first. It's the most deserving recipient of the Mercury Prize in its history: a breathlessly ambitious and lovingly crafted masterpiece. It should be called Bring It 'The Fuck' On." To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Gomez's Mercury Music Prize winning debut album, Bring It On will be re-mastered and reissued as a super-deluxe 4CD with an accompanying remastered double LP release. The 4CD 20th Anniversary edition of Bring It On contains the original, classic album remastered by Frank Arkwright @ Abbey Road studios and 35 previously unreleased tracks including 25 demos (recorded between January 1996 and August 1997) - 13 of which are appearing on an official Gomez release for the first time

BoDeans w/ Trapper Schoepp - City Winery
June 07, 2018 - New York

Those who have followed BoDeans' remarkable 30-year musical career know that their blend of compelling songs and high energy performances have retained an unpretentious rock & roll loyal following like no other.Best known for their catchy single, "Closer To Free," the band's accessible adult alternative sound has led to many a milestone, including a Rolling Stone Reader's Poll for Best New American Band in 1987, and support slots with U2, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, George Thorogood, The Pretenders, David Bowie and numerous others. Appearances at Farm Aid, Summerfest, ACL Festival and others followed, along with TV appearances on "Saturday NightLive," "Letterman," "Today," "Imus," CNN, and ESPN, to name a few. BoDeans have a permanent installation at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland as part of their Midwest Artists exhibit. After multiple chart-topping radio singles, and TV placements, BoDeans have defined a generation that embraced songs like "Good Things," "You Don't Get Much," "Idaho," "If It Makes You," "Closer To Free," "Stay," and "All The World." BoDeans signed their first recording contract with Slash/Warner Brothers Records in 1985 and their debut record, "Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams" was released May, 1986. Since then, they have released 12 studio albums with ten records that hit the Billboard Top 200 Chart, and numerous singles on the Mainstream Rock, Top 40 and Triple A radio charts. Few would expect them to still be going strong – so many years after Wisconsin's favorite musical sons first formed, but they've proved as energetic and determined as they did on day one. Their music isfeatured throughout the new Netflix original series, "The Ranch," which features Sam Elliott, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson and Debra Winger. They have major festival dates confirmed for the summer, and a new single coming out that is sure to be another chart-topper. BoDeans now reside in a small group of bands that have managed to survive the ups and downs of the industry, remaining true to their sound and their style, for 30 years, and show no signs of slowing down.

Hooverphonic - Highline Ballroom
June 07, 2018 - New York

Hooverphonic are a Belgian band who initially became known for their moody, playful take on trip-hop during the mid-'90s. Since then, the band's sound has evolved greatly, incorporating psychedelic, pop, and orchestral elements. The group's songs have appeared in numerous advertisements as well as film and television soundtracks, and they have a considerable fan base throughout the world. However, they are superstars in their native Belgium; starting with 1998's Blue Wonder Power Milk, all of their albums (including compilations and live recordings) have hit the Top Ten of the album charts, and five of them have reached the top spot. Initially known as Hoover, the group was founded in 1995 by Alex Callier, Frank Duchêne, and Raymond Geerts. The band cut its first demo with singer Esther Lybeert, and industrial musician Luc Van Acker (Revolting Cocks, Lords of Acid) encouraged the group to shop its music to record labels. Eventually the group signed with Sony, but Lybeert decided to leave the group, so Liesje Sadonius became Hoover's vocalist for the recording of their first album. Hoover made their initial splash contributing the song "2Wicky" (an eerie trip-hop number sampling both Pierre Henry and Isaac Hayes) to the soundtrack of the 1996 Bernardo Bertolucci film Stealing Beauty. The hit was followed by the full-length A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular, a trippy album filled with breakbeats and samples. By the time the album was issued in America in 1997, the group had changed its name to Hooverphonic in order to avoid confusion with other bands titled Hoover, as well as the American vacuum cleaner manufacturer.

Willa Cather's Red Cloud: A Trip Back in Time - the New York Society Library
June 07, 2018 - New York

Library staff members Harriet Shapiro and Cathy McGowan present a talk with images and music about Red Cloud, Nebraska, the prairie town where Willa Cather grew up. They recently visited Red Cloud, including the childhood home, today a National Historic Landmark, where Cather read in her attic room, as well as the Red Cloud Opera House, where Cather developed her deep love of music and theater. When the ten-year-old Cather, uprooted from her home Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, first arrived in Red Cloud, she found herself (in the words of one critic) "lost in a sea of grass devoid of human habitation." In time, Red Cloud became the mythological landscape for some of Cather's greatest novels, from O Pioneers and My Ántonia to The Song of the Lark. The Library team also drove out of town to view the prairie land that captured Cather's imagination more than 130 years ago. Cather left Red Cloud and its prairie in 1890, but she lived with its potent memories for the rest of her life.

Floral figures question the contemporary artist’s role as saint or fighter; decorative appliance panels foreshadow jewel-tone iMacs; modular tiles take on lives of their own in complex “motion dances.” Curated by Jodie Mack, an artist and filmmaker featured in MAD's exhibition 'Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro,' this program carries out many of the concerns within that exhibition, questioning hierarchies of material capital and navigating the personal and political boundaries of the pattern.

Kick - The INXS Experience - The Cutting Room
June 07, 2018 - New York

Formed in 2014, two years after INXS stopped touring, KICK - The INXS Experience has beautifully managed to capture the spirit of INXS in both its sound and live performance, bringing the highest level of musicianship to the audience while showing a true passion for the music of INXS. Vocalist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter Cory Massi is the founding frontman of KICK, and has long held a respect and admiration for the late great Michael Hutchence. Massi even auditioned for the reality TV show, Rockstar: INXS, in 2004, where contestants competed to become the new lead vocalist for INXS. What convinced him to audition? "I loved Michael's singing and his personality," notes Massi. "I saw INXS when I was a teenager in '88 and '89; they were great, and the people were just gaga over them. Michael left a big impression with his star power; he really had it, that guy. Our range is similar and I just went for it. I had to sing "Mystify" a cappella so I was kind of nervous because I didn't have a band behind me. There was a camera a foot away from my face and it was out of my comfort zone; I would probably still feel uncomfortable today. I didn't get the gig: I was one of the last people to try out and I think by the time I auditioned they had already made their selection. No excuse: it was a good experience. We include "Mystify" in our set and when I sing it, I have my band with me and we love the music, so we play it with a lot of heart."

Bonhams Announces the Spring Sale of Modern Decorative Art + Design - Bonhams
June 07, 2018 - New York

Bonhams is pleased to announce highlights from the upcoming auction of Modern Decorative Art + Design, which will take place on June 7 at 2pm. The sale encompasses over 130 lots and includes a broad selection of works from renowned designers such as Harry Bertoia, George Nakashima, Frank Lloyd Wright, Claude Lalanne, and Carlo Scarpa. Additional highlights include a Robert Goossens chandelier that was a special commission by fashion designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, Pierre Jeanneret armchairs directly from Chandigarh, a rare wall light attributed to Gino Sarfatti, and an exquisite enamel centrepiece by Thorolf Holmboe, circa 1907. Highlighting the sale is an eclectic collection of ten sculptures by Harry Bertoia that were mostly gifted from the artist to Michael Hall, a family friend. The works span the spectrum of Bertoia’s career from the 1950s to the 1970s and leading the collection is Untitled (Bush Form) circa 1970 (estimate: $80,000-120,000). This magnificent full-bodied piece was inspired by the foliage around Bertoia’s home in rural Pennsylvania. Another one-of-kind work is (Untitled) Sonambient circa 1970, a sound sculpture made of copper rods, one in a circle, and another in a semi-circle configuration (estimate: $40,000-60,000). This work was gifted by Bertoia to Richard Farrell in 1975. Farrell was Vice President and General Council for the Amoco Corporation, and oversaw the construction of the Standard Oil building in Chicago. In 1974, Harry Bertoia was commissioned by the Standard Oil Company to create a series of sculptures for the building’s plaza. The commission became a seminal moment in Bertoia’s stellar career.

Who's Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Experience - Rocks Off
June 07, 2018 - New York

Who's Bad's live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music's one true King. Their power-packed performance of Michael Jackson's expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see. As the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing, Who's Bad has awed even the skeptics, selling out nearly 50 venues in the United Kingdom including London's O2 in December of 2010, the venue where the King of Pop was slated to end his career with a 50-show "This Is It" concert series. Beyond this unparalleled achievement, Who's Bad has checked some of the world's most famous pavilions off their 'to-do' list, selling out their first tour of China with stops at Ningbo's Grand Theatre and Hunan Grand Theatre in Chengsha. Never neglecting Michael's U.S. fans, Who's Bad has packed The House of Blues franchise all across the United States; rocked DC's 930 Club and returned to their native Chapel Hill, NC boasting larger, more eagerly-awaited performances with every romp around the globe. Sold-out shows from Colorado's Bluebird Theatre and LA's Gibson Amphitheatre and Romania's Sala Palatalui to Teatro do Bourbon Country (Porto Alegre, Brazil) tell the story: no corner of the earth is safe from this infectious party production. Who's Bad has earned its name by paying studious attention to Michael Jackson's every original groove and gravity-defying dance move, boasting over 100 years of professional experience and a team of dancers with resumes that include Broadway productions such as Phantom of the Opera. Vamsi Tadepalli (Who's Bad founder, musical director, and saxophonist) assembled a cast of North Carolina's premiere musicians and, from Who's Bad's inception, believed in the band's boundless possibilities.

We Want to Feel Truly Expressed--But What Interferes? - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
June 07, 2018 - New York

How much people feel unexpressed and long to express themselves, yet don’t know what that would mean. And how often people also feel that they “expressed” themselves in a way they’re ashamed of, that they blundered again–but don’t understand why. Aesthetic Realism explains this subject! And as the speakers at the exciting June 7th seminar show how, they’ll present the knowledge everyone is looking for. Consultant Devorah Tarrow and associates Maureen Butler and Sally Ross, using vivid instances from their own lives and from the arts and history, will make this thrillingly clear: our ability to be truly expressed depends on how well we see the world, because it’s the world in which, and to which, we express ourselves. You’ll hear too about Aesthetic Realism consultations–and how, as women learn to see themselves, people, and the world itself more truly, they come to be expressed in a way they always longed to be!

June 07, 2018 - Upper East Side

Tony Award winning director Kenny Leon (Children of a Lesser God, A Raisin in the Sun, “Hairspray Live!”) discusses his upcoming memoir, TAKE YOU WHEREVER YOU GO, with theatrical author and historian Tom Santopietro. This heart-warming memoir is a tribute to his rock and foundation, his grandmother, Mamie Wilson. The foreword to this loving portrait is written by Samuel L. Jackson. In TAKE YOU WHEREVER YOU GO, Leon reflects on the lessons he learned every step of the way from the most important people in his life, from his grandmother's sagacious and encouraging motivations to the deep artistic and cultural influence of iconic American playwright August Wilson. The wisdom and fortitude Leon learned through all who has influenced him, paired with his tremendous storytelling, will show that you can find a classroom anywhere; inspire you to never change who you are; and as his grandmother instilled in him, "take you wherever you go.”

Porochista Khakpour: Sick: A Memoir w/ Susannah Cahalan - Books Are Magic
June 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

For as long as writer Porochista Khakpour can remember, she has been sick. For most of that time, she didn't know why. All of her trips to the ER and her daily anguish, pain, and lethargy only ever resulted in one question: How could any one person be this sick? Several drug addictions, three major hospitalizations, and over $100,000 later, she finally had a diagnosis: late-stage Lyme disease. In the tradition of Brain on Fire and Darkness Visible, Sick is an honest, beautifully rendered memoir of chronic illness, misdiagnosis, addiction, and the myth of full recovery that details author Porochista Khakpour's struggles with late-stage Lyme disease.

Tiffany Austin Septet featuring special guest Carl Allen 'Unbroken' Album Release Concert - Birdland NYC
June 07, 2018 - New York

Widely hailed as one of the best jazz debut albums of 2015, Tiffany Austin's self-released Nothing But Soul made quite a splash, including sterling reviews in Downbeat and on NPR's "Fresh Air." Her eagerly awaited follow-up, Unbroken, confirms the Bay Area vocalist's status as one of jazz's elite singers and a formidable songwriter as well. Unbroken is both a timeless meditation on African-American culture's extraordinary resilience and an all-too-timely response to the reenergized forces seeking to degrade and deny that legacy. Produced by Grammy Award-winning jazz champion Richard Seidel, the album features arrangements by trombonist Mitch Butler. He's joined by a stellar cast of jazz veterans, including pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Rodney Whitaker, drummer Carl Allen, and tenor saxophonist Teodross Avery, along with young trumpeter Ashlin Parker. Rather than separating African-American music into kindred tributaries, Austin plunges into the whole river of sound that's sustained black life in America since before the nation's founding. In many ways, she's contesting what vocalist Gregory Porter has called "musical genocide" with a soul-steeped affirmation that embraces blues and swing, spirituals and R&B, bebop, post-bop, and her own Louisiana Creole heritage.

June 07, 2018 - New York

Tony Award winning director Kenny Leon (Children of a Lesser God, A Raisin in the Sun, “Hairspray Live!”) discusses his upcoming memoir, TAKE YOU WHEREVER YOU GO, with theatrical author and historian Tom Santopietro. This heart-warming memoir is a tribute to his rock and foundation, his grandmother, Mamie Wilson. The foreword to this loving portrait is written by Samuel L. Jackson. In TAKE YOU WHEREVER YOU GO, Leon reflects on the lessons he learned every step of the way from the most important people in his life, from his grandmother's sagacious and encouraging motivations to the deep artistic and cultural influence of iconic American playwright August Wilson. The wisdom and fortitude Leon learned through all who has influenced him, paired with his tremendous storytelling, will show that you can find a classroom anywhere; inspire you to never change who you are; and as his grandmother instilled in him, "take you wherever you go.”

Steve Forbert and The Renditions - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
June 08, 2018 - Bay Shore

Steve Forbert leaves no stone unturned in his exploration of life, love, turmoil, and survival. After years with local bands, Steve Forbert left his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi in his early 20s and headed for the Big Apple in search of recording deals and larger audiences. He started out playing for change at Grand Central Station and hitting every open mic night he could before eventually moving into the club scene at infamous spots like New York City's CBGB's. At a time when rootsy rock was fading in favor of punk edged bands such as the Ramones, Talking Heads, and Blondie, Forbert's folk pop "Romeo's Tune" hit #11 on the charts and brought him into the international spotlight. Critics and the public embraced his melodic and lyrical styles, a more traditional sound among the post-disco punk and rock of the late '70s and early '80s. Always following his own instincts, Forbert says, "I've never been interested in changing what I do to fit popular style and needs." And that's the motto he has lived by since the release of his debut album, Alive on Arrival, in 1978. Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild recently wrote that "now or then, you would have been hard-pressed to find a debut effort that was simultaneous as fresh and accomplished as Alive on Arrival. It was like a great novel by a young author who somehow managed to split the difference between Mark Twain and J. D. Salinger.

"The Art of Cool" an exhibition by Marko Stout - World Trade Gallery
June 08, 2018 - New York

New York City - Later this spring the World Trade Center Gallery will host a solo exhibition featuring the latest works of New York's hottest artist Marko Stout. The show is scheduled to kick off with a hot opening night VIP party on Friday night 06/08/18. Marko Stout is a popular contemporary artist known for his gritty industrial pop style with a focus on New York City and modern urban life. Marko Stout is renowned for his cutting-edge, aspirational industrial pop style that's accessible and cool - a signature aesthetic that combines the downtown New York City DNA with a modern, rock-chic edge! Marko Stout's most recent sold out solo exhibition at New York's famed Artifact Gallery in SoHo brought a huge number of young fans, art dealers and international collectors eager to meet the artist and buy the latest and somewhat controversial works from this pop art master, who many in the artworld are comparing to fellow New York pop artists; Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol. 2018 is already an amazing year for New York's hottest artist! In early March, Marko Stout kicked-off New York's Armory Show week with a solo exhibition and VIP party in SoHo's popular Artifact Gallery attended by thousands of enthusiastic fans and collectors eager to meet the artist, his models and view Marko's latest works! Earlier this year Stout unofficially launched "Urban Tribe", the artist's line of cool, causal urban fashion. The collection will officially launch this September with a VIP runway show during New York's Fashion Week. World Trade Center Gallery was established in 1981 at 68 Greenwich Street. Collectors Doug Smith and Jane Chun Smith now are the second generation to run the gallery with a focus on the art scene in the Financial District of New York City. The gallery is dedicated to showcasing emerging and established artists from NYC, with an emphasis on the local street art scene.

Belle & Sebastian With Perfume Genius And Frankie Cosmos - Forest Hills Stadium
June 08, 2018 - Forest Hills

The best pop groups want to change the world. They want to leave an imprint that no one forgets, to do more than check out as a minor statistic in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles. They want to change the world of pop, and to engage with the politics of pop. Belle & Sebastian have re-invented the pop festival; they signed to a tiny independent label but still beat Steps to a BRIT, before sweeping into the Top 40, then the Top 20. They've brought their lost sixties heroine, Evie Sands, over to play a show in Glasgow. They've sold out a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. And, in 2014, they cut an album – their ninth – called Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, that blends electro-glide, baroque balladry, and giant-sized Europop hooks. They deserve several accolades, each of which are rare for any band in 2017 – Belle & Sebastian are unique, unpredictable, and fiercely loved.

Skating Polly, Potty Mouth - Mercury Lounge
June 08, 2018 - New York

There's a difficult to describe, yet timeless quality to certain songs that transcends genre or era. It's something that you can't fake or contrive and it's what lies at the core of Skating Polly's music. The multi-instrumentalist duo of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse started their band in Oklahoma in 2009. They recorded their debut album Taking Over The World in 2010 and achieved instant acclaim from underground music icons like X's Exene Cervenka (who produced 2013's Lost Wonderfuls) and Beat Happening's Calvin Johnson (who produced 2014's Fuzz Steliacoom). After the release of 2016's The Big Fit, Veruca Salt's co-frontwomen Louise Post and Nina Gordon reached out and said they wanted to write with the band. What started as a writing session ultimately became 2017's New Trick EP. Now armed with a third member—Kelli's brother Kurtis Mayo—the trio are about to release their latest full length, The Make It All Show.

Telefon Tel Aviv - Saint Vitus Bar
June 08, 2018 - Brooklyn

Telefon Tel Aviv is an experimental electronic duo formed in 1999 by two New Orleans high-school friends, Joshua Eustis and Charles Cooper. Following years of playing in various local bands and learning the ropes of electronic music production, Eustis and Cooper wrote the demos for what would become Telefon Tel Aviv in 1999. After sending them to John Hughes III, who operated the Chicago-based Hefty Records, they were offered an album deal in January 2000. They spent the rest of that year writing their debut album, Fahrenheit Fair Enough, released in September 2001, as well as the soundtrack for the movie New Port South, written by Hughes' brother James and released the same year. Shaped by a diverse set of influences that included British electronic music (Autechre, Aphex Twin, Jega) and Black American music (house, techno, bounce rap), Telefon Tel Aviv were the latest in a growing lineup of American musicians that sought to carve their own lane and add something meaningful to a growing international conversation about what the meeting point between hip-hop, soul, and electronic music could be. But while Eustis and Cooper emerged within a specific context that provided their continuing work with a solid foundation, they spent the next decade taking risks and grappling with the idea of what an electronic duo could be.

Mary Gauthier Naked Soul - Rubin Museum of Art
June 08, 2018 - New York

There is nothing trivial about the award-winning, "country noir" singer Mary Gauthier's tenth album, Rifles and Rosary Beads (Thirty Tigers), a collection of songs co-written with and for wounded veterans, as part of Darden Smith's five-year-old Songwriting With: Soldiers program. Gauthier's first nine albums presented deeply confessional songs, ranging from "I Drink," a blunt accounting of addiction, to "March 11, 1962," the day she was born—and relinquished to an orphanage—to "Worthy," in which the singer finally understands she is deserving of love.

Neighborhood Concert: Red Baraat - Carnegie Hall
June 08, 2018 - New York

Described by NPR as "the best party band in years," Brooklyn-based Red Baraat combines rock, jazz, and funk with scorching bhangra (Punjabi dance and music) for a pulse-quickening experience. Red Baraat's brass section soars like a hot New Orleans mainline band, while the bhangra beats—driven by the dhol (a two-headed Indian drum)—provide relentless momentum. Red Baraat's 2013 album, Shruggy Ji, jumped to the top of the Billboard World Music chart, and its most recent album, Bhangra Pirates, has been met with tremendous critical acclaim.

Gary Clark Jr. - The Capitol Theatre
June 08, 2018 - Port Chester

"Come Together" was never the most sensical song in the Beatles' catalog, but when John Lennon wrote one line in the last verse — "He got muddy water, he one mojo filter" — maybe he was having a prophetic moment. Almost four decades later, that rock classic has been covered for the Justice League soundtrack by Gary Clark Jr., a man who assuredly has a lot of Muddy Waters in him, and who's got his mojo filter working full-time, transforming the greatest, most time-tested tropes of traditional American music into the blazing-est rock and roll this side of a Jimi Hendrix bonfire.

Paul Young & Midge Ure - Highline Ballroom
June 08, 2018 - New York

Paul Antony Young was born January 17th 1956. He was the middle child of three, has an elder brother Mark and a younger sister Joanne. His interest in music dates back to when he was very young, when he learnt to play the piano and then the guitar. On leaving school he worked, as did his father and brother, for Vauxhall Motors and played in various bands at night. He played bass guitar in his first and second band, but always wanted to become the singer. However his preferred style of music, blues and in particular soul, was not that popular in Luton. So his second band, Kat Kool & The Kool Kats, gave him a small section in the middle of the set where Paul chose to sing covers of Bill Withers and Albert King amongst others, as well as a couple of self penned songs. This wasn't enough though for Paul, and after hearing Paul's demos at a local recording studio, he left the Kool Kats, and moved to London in 1976 taking up the offer to be in the better known Streetband. Towards the end of 2015, Paul was contacted by Gary Barlow (Take That) and asked to consider recording a song for a soundtrack that Gary was producing for a movie based around the story of Eddie The Eagle. The song in question "People Like Us" was a perfect fit for Paul.

Majestic Downfall from Mexico - Blackthorn 51
June 09, 2018 - Elmhurst

After playing for more than 10 years in Mexico´s ANTIQUA, a Death/Doom band that toured all over Mexico. Jacobo decided to part ways with the band and form a new Doom Metal project called MAJESTIC DOWNFALL. MAJESTIC DOWNFALL started as a One Man Doom journey in August of 2006. The idea was to recapture the feeling of the 90s European Death/Doom Metal scene, while mixing it with some more modern Metal overtones. In 2007, MAJESTIC DOWNFALL pressed its first demo titled - The First Abyss Demo 2007 - and it contained 3 songs of Melodic yet Mournful Doom with a playing time of 24 minutes. This demo was later released by Solitude Productions in a split CD, with Italian Black/Doom Metal band Ansia.

Joe Louis Walker - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts

Joe Louis Walker is a true powerhouse guitar virtuoso, unique singer and prolific songwriter. Walker, a Blues Hall of Fame inductee and four-time Blues Music Award winner, has toured extensively throughout his career, performing at the world's most renowned music festivals, and earned a legion of dedicated fans. His latest, highly-acclaimed album Everybody Wants A Piece, from Mascot/Provogue, cements his legacy as a prolific torch bearer for the blues. Looking back on his rich history, Walker shares, "I'd like to be known for the credibility of a lifetime of being true to my music and the blues. Sometimes I feel I've learned more from my failures, than from my successes, but that's made me stronger and more adventurous, and helped me create my own style. I'd like to think that when someone puts on one of my records they would know from the first notes, 'That's Joe Louis Walker.'"

I wanted the guys to feel like they were giving something to the project beyond just playing."

EELS - Brooklyn Steel
June 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

"We could do the usual record company "bio" about this new record, but, seriously…who gives a fuck? The world is a mess. This is just music. Music by someone who tends to believe that change starts in your own backyard. I'm just optimistic enough to believe that kind of thing can still help people. It doesn't have any answers, other than maybe that there is no answer, the dust never settles, everything is out of control, etc. But it offers this: you can make changes. Thus, you can change the world. Right? Maybe if there's anything we have any true control over, it's how we see things. There's a song about that here. The "our" of "In Our Cathedral" is the collective "our" — all of us. Your point of view. As the great Roger Miller once said, "You can't roller skate in a buffalo herd, but you can be happy if you've a mind to." He said it better than I did. The other thing we can do while everything's such a mess is just try to be kind. Why not? We all have bad days, but why not put in the effort whenever possible? Nobody has it easy, however their story may appear from a distance. So why not try to be nice? Starting with yourself. That's a nice change for the world right there. Good things will grow out of that. There are some songs along those lines here as well. I've been through some stuff, but I'm no expert. I'm trying to dead reckon my way same as anyone. I'm really just talking to myself here, looking for what's really there under all the defenses. But maybe it could help you too? Or: Fuck all this jibber jabber and see if you like this new record! Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don't even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside." EELS guy

Nasty Reputation Feat. Tommie Sunshine, Benny Soto, Mike Nervous, Alex English & Rico Alexis - Sony Hall
June 09, 2018 - New York

After transitioning into a solo artist and releasing the strong yet somewhat derivative album "Wild Obsession", Axel parted ways with singer Charlie Huhn and hooked up with more accomplished and passion driven singer Rob Rock and released "Nasty Reputation", the blue print for the new and refined ARP sound that still consistently present on his latest albums despite a changing musical world and a barrage of fly by night trends. Rob Rock's vocal performance on here is over-the-top, as is the case with his solo work, but this has consistently worked well for him. He pulls off sleazy sounding rocking numbers like the album's title track and "Wanted Man" with equally proficiency as he does the more vocally exposed and keyboard driven ballad "When a Blind Man cries". Unlike Jeff Scott Soto and Johnny Gioeli, whom both tend to sound rough edged when hitting the higher notes, Rob's voice consistently remains a husky, classically driven tenor when not going for the over-the-top banshee screeches. As far as the overall song collection on here, we get all the key ingredients for the same winning albums of "Oceans of Time" and "Kings and Queens" which followed a while after this one. "I will survive" and "Fighting the law" are classic ARP brand speed metal, while "Open Doors" is a three part instrumental caprice put together by Axel that listens in a similar vain to the experimental stylistic devices of Black Moon Pyramid quickie "Aqua solution" and Between the Walls instrumental extravaganza "Desert Fire". "Wanted Man" and "Firewall" are cut from the mid-tempo 80s inspired sleaze metal but with a bit more attitude, as is "Unchain the Thunder" but with a few quiet sections for melodically driven guitar work and more subdued vocals.

The Most Brazilian Contemporary French Singer Songwriter Like Charles Aznavour, French singer, songwriter and guitar-player Nicola Són was born in Paris to a musical family of Armenian descent. His childhood was rocked by the sounds of traditional instruments and dances like doudouk and kotchari but also by melodic and poetic chanson française à la Gainsbourg and Michel Legrand. As a teenager, he discovered "Lígia," a wonderful Tom Jobim's composition performed by João Gilberto and Stan Getz, that triggered his fascination and passion for Brazilian music. A few years later in 2003, he traveled to Rio, where bossa nova originated, to learn Portuguese and hone his knowledge of the local music. A second longer journey took him through wilder, rougher and more authentic regions like Manaus, the Amazonian, Belém, Fortaleza and Recife. The young wandering troubadour and aspiring anthropologist then discovered Brazil's rich and diverse culture, the warmth of its people but also the harsh realities of its rampant social inequality and poverty, sharply contrasting with the pretty sights too often portrayed in fancy tourist postcards. In 2005, while staying and establishing quarter in Rio's bohemian Lapa district, the birthplace of Samba, Nicola met a variety of local musicians. Following in the footsteps of late French crossover pioneers Pierre Barouh and Claude Nougaro who were both deeply influenced by Brazilian musical landscape, he started adapting national standards into French and also penning his own original material. All this gave birth to his debut album, punnily titled Parioca, fusing Paris and "Carioca" (= Rio's native). A year after its 2010 official French release, the disk was warmly received in Brazil, drawing rave reviews from the local media, at once intrigued and impressed by the young recording and performing French artist. In 2011, Nicola returned to Rio for 6 months to record his sophomore CD Nord Destin. The project gathered a cast of top-notch local artists, including percussionists Marcos Suzano and João Hermeto, bassist Rodrigo Villa, guitarist Gabriel Improta as well as vibrant guests like legendary pianist João Donato and samba ensemble Casuarina. The album's 2013 French release was celebrated with a sold-out show at New Morning, Paris most renowned and vanguard jazz venue.

Too Many Zooz - Brooklyn Bowl
June 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

At the 2016 CMA Awards one sound burst from the stage like a thunderquake. As Beyoncé performed "Daddy Lessons" accompanied by Dixie Chicks and Too Many Zooz -- the New York City trio which originally recorded the song on the star's Lemonade album -- TMZ brought the sound of the street to Beyoncé's glittering musical declaration. Glued to their smart phones, tablets, and TVs, America beheld Too Many Zooz' innovative polyglot style. Beyoncé and Dixie Chicks sashayed the song's verses in a rollicking country vibe, but as the performance neared midpoint, a tall, burly baritone saxophonist with a luminous white pompadour took the stage like a bar-walking gladiator. TMZ's Leo P danced, shimmied, and shaked, matching Beyoncé move for move, while blowing growling saxophone notes that infused urban funk to "Daddy Lessons"' two-beat country jig. TMZ trumpeter Matt Doe and drummer King of Sludge performed on the stage's backline as a blaring brass line raised "Daddy Lessons"' intensity, followed by Beyoncé and Dixie Chicks slamming song's political theme home. Too Many Zooz's saxophonist Pellegrino, trumpeter Matt Doe, and drummer King of Sludge held Nashville's Bridgestone Arena stage for mere minutes, but the same talent that moved Beyoncé to have the group record both "Daddy Lessons" and "Formation" on Lemonade has seen TMZ sell thousands of CDs and downloads, and inspired viral videos.

The warmth of the summer months also makes for greatly increased flexibility, which, when intensely exercised, can propel students to a higher level.

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

As they steadily become one of the most sought after, highly-acclaimed Southern Rock bands in music, TheVegabonds' roots run deep, even alongside the fan base having now extended across the U.S. and Europe. Their devotion to music and their tireless tour schedule illustrates their laser-sharp focus on growing into one of the biggest names out of Nashville, while never forgetting their humble beginnings. With a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers mixed with the grit and twang of the Allman Brothers Band, The Vegabonds give their fans a sensational performance with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd, the late Gregg Allman, and Kid Rock, among others. Rousing performances at festivals like Peach Fest, Magnolia Fest, Sunfest, and Toadlick grew their notoriety nationwide, leading to a west coast tour that formed in-roads with the music and comedy community in Los Angeles. It's no wonder that Live for Live Music has compared them to musical legends like My Morning Jacket and The Black Crowes, calling them "a force to be reckoned with," complete with "gorgeous harmonies and impressive instrumental skills mak[ing] for a perfect combination." Born in Alabama. Bred in Nashville. Seasoned by the Road. Celebrated the world over. Come let your hair down with The Vegabonds.

LPR X: Elysian Fields with Minivan - (Le) Poisson Rouge
June 09, 2018 - New York

The distinctive and idiosyncratic New York cult band Elysian Fields have been a part of the LPR musical landscape since its early days. Jennifer Charles and Oren Bloedow are the writers who make up the critically-acclaimed band that formed in New York in 1995 and went on to develop a cult following of faithful fans around the world. After a dalliance with a major label for their first album in 1996, EF recorded their second full-length with Steve Albini, generating a response from the label that had the band asking to be released from their contract. They went on to forge a path outside of the mainstream, recording with a number of independent labels over the years, most recently releasing the evocative Ghosts of No in 2016. Jennifer and Oren are also known for their work outside of Elysian Fields, recording two albums of Sephardic diaspora music on John Zorn's Tzadik label under the name La Mar Enfortuna. Jennifer was part of the supergroup Lovage along with Dan the Automator and Mike Patton, and has appeared as a guest on countless recordings, including those of French stars Jean-Louis Murat and Wax Tailor, and experimental composer JG Thirlwell. She has also maintained a career in theater alongside music, with leading roles in numerous Off-Broadway productions over the years. In 2016, she originated the part of the Girl Angel in Du-Yun's opera Angel's Bone, which went on to win the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Music.

Sam Lewis - Mercury Lounge
June 09, 2018 - New York

Like many before him, Sam Lewis came to Nashville to make music. But unlike the majority, Lewis managed to hop on one of the most successful tours that country music has seen as of late. He's collaborated with everyone from John Prine and Kacey Musgraves to The Wood Brothers. Chris Stapleton dubbed him "a modern Townes Van Zandt". And while he's often labeled with some form of the word 'soulful' (some have even compared his voice to molasses), Lewis' style meets at a juncture of many different genres. There's something about Sam Lewis that is indescribably different -- and with his newest project, he's discovered what most musicians spend lifetimes working for -- the place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary. When Lewis decided to make the move from Knoxville to Nashville in summer 2009, he was still working full-time at Walmart (a gig that lasted nearly a decade). In his off-time, he began playing smaller local venues including the 5 Spot, where he met fel- low singer-songwriter Matt Urmy. After forming a friendship, Urmy offered to help Lewis "We went to his basement, I laid down some songs, we pieced a band together and made a record in a couple days at Eastwood Studios." That record would become Lewis's first official release and self-titled debut that featured Nashville greats Kenny Vaughan, Reggie Bradley Smith, Dave Jacques, and Derek Mixon.

At our event, we aim to bring our ill members and caregivers together to send the message that they are not alone in their fight.

Wynton Marsalis - Jazz Lincoln Center's Rose Hall
Through June 09, 2018 - New York

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra presents a rare concert devoted entirely to Wynton Marsalis' original music. In addition to a broad selection of favorites drawn from Marsalis' legendary career, the centerpiece of the evening will be the world premiere of Marsalis' new extended work: (The Ever-Funky Lowdown). This Jazz at Lincoln Center-commissioned piece is the latest entry in Marsalis' renowned canon of music exploring America's relationship to racial matters, a topic he revisits once per decade. This subject has yielded some of his best work: the 1986 Grammy Award-winning Black Codes (From the Underground), 2007's From the Plantation to the Penitentiary, and 1994's Blood on the Fields — the first jazz composition ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. Guitarist Doug Wamble and vocalists Camille Thurman, Brianna Thomas, and Jazzmeia Horn join the orchestra for these performances. Composed specifically for the JLCO's current lineup, (The Ever-Funky Lowdown) will masterfully utilize the group's virtuosic soloists, stylistic versatility, and unparalleled ensemble cohesion. It will also serve as a sophisticated musical platform for Marsalis to convey his hopes, concerns, and historically informed insights about our culture and society. On this momentous final weekend of our 30th concert season, we're proud to pair this timely new commission with other treasured works by our Managing & Artistic Director. This performance is one of our 30th anniversary landmark events because Wynton Marsalis has been the driving creative force behind Jazz at Lincoln Center's founding and success. His work and music have been a core part of Jazz at Lincoln Center since our earliest beginnings, and the 2018 world premiere of (The Ever-Funky Lowdown) continues to highlight this close connection. Join our family! Subscribe today by purchasing three or more concerts to our 2017–18 season and receive priority seating, free ticket exchanges and discounts.

Rosemary's Baby - Nitehawk Cinema
June 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

The year is one! In the film that marked horror as being domesticated, Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby is the quintessential film about the devil. Set in 1960s New York and inside the infamous Dakota (known here as the Bramford), the dollish Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) and the devious Guy Woodhouse (John Cassavetes) battle it out as his desire to be a famous actor means the ultimate pact with Satan…offering his wife up to be the mother of the devil's only living son. Rosemary's obsession with a growing concern for the safety of her baby from neighbors Minnie (oh Ruth Gordon how we love you) and Roman Castevet is validated when she discovers the horrific truth. He does, after all, have his father's eyes.

Kiani Del Valle: Catacoustic Flesh (world premiere) + special guest Katie Gately - National Sawdust
June 09, 2018 - Brooklyn

Catacoustic Flesh is a work that functions on the premise of symbiotic relationships between body movement and sound. Working towards a level playing field between choreographing-from-music and composing-from-movement, this performance seeks to offer a mode of dance that can both lead and mislead the listener. In doing so the dominant semiotic sense is ever-changing which nurtures a transcendental fluidity. Shifting from rhythmic loops and magnetic outbursts to hypnotic drone-states, the foundation for this work is the concept of 'textures', 'resonance' and 'aura' vs 'rhythm', 'pattern' and 'cues'. The piece not only explores the idea of a body as a collaborative sound instrument but also takes us to a new dimension where sound and movement is the predominant language of communication. The performance work questions the role of the unconscious in the merging of identities and layers of oneself, creating a dance based on the idea of a physical musical act or band where movement takes the role of a singer or a storyteller. As the piece evolves a common language is created distorting the idea of question and answer.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical - Stephen Sondheim Theatre
Through June 10, 2018 - New York

The fascinating life of one of pop music's greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. When Carole's personal life begins falling apart, she responds by stepping out of the shadows with Tapestry, a deeply personal collection of songs that becomes one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Wicked - Gershwin Theatre
Through June 10, 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 10, 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.

Eyes That Don't See, Corazón Que No Siente - IATI Theater
Through June 10, 2018 - New York

A funny, poignant, and magical play that examines the dynamic between members of a Cuban-American family and the journey of coming to terms with your roots as a first-generation. Christy is at a crossroads in both her personal and professional life. When she visits her home in Miami for the weekend, she must navigate her mercurial relationship with her strong-willed mother Martica and confront the choices she's made since she left home. Meanwhile, the Valiente family are knee deep in preparation for a celebration welcoming the return of Christy's younger brother Martin. Throughout the day we are introduced to other members of the family: Ramoncito, Christy's cousin, who is struggling with his sexuality and his father's acceptance, Ana, the loud and vivacious aunt, who brings her much younger boyfriend to the house and knows all of the right buttons to push in order to get a reaction, Vero and Pepe, close family friends, who provide comfort and reassurance to this family and lastly, Manolito, longtime friend of Jesus, who is struggling with early Alzheimer's. At the end of Act One, the family is confronted with a life-shattering event which turns their world upside down. This catalyst begins to shift the style of the play from a naturalistic dramedy into a magical realist play which showcases the unstable world they must now navigate. End Time: 9:30 am. Category: Arts | Performing Arts | Theatre. Artists / Speakers: Michael Leon | Playwright, Victoria Collado | Director, Performers: Lina Sarrello*, Ashley Alvarez, Victor Cruz, Jonny Rios, Jezabel Montero*, Matt McDonald, Rene Granado, Adriana Gaviria* & Plinio Villablanca.

Masterclass in Glass Casting & Fabrication - UrbanGlass
Through June 10, 2018 - Brooklyn

"Since 1984 my studio practice has revolved around objects made from cast glass. As my work undergoes constant transformation, I have mastered a multitude of known casting techniques and pioneered new ways of casting glass into refractory molds. From small scale to large, I have kept years of kiln firing notes that help to inform my studio practice as to successes and failures. It is my ongoing desire to transfer this knowledge base to other artists through a series of master classes. These classes are intended for artists of all levels but in particular, artists who are somewhat experienced with various casting methods. The class is not hands-on instead through slide and video presentations, I walk the class through basic skills all the way through detailed explanations of how complex projects have been completed. My hope is that each student will come away with a deeper understanding that practically anything is possible."

That's Not Tango--Astor Piazzolla, A Life in Music - SubCulture
Through June 10, 2018 - New York

Singled Out by the New York Times, Acclaimed Show Returns to NY June 8, 9 & 10 as well as July dates In Gender-Bending Role, Lesley Karsten Stars in Production Led by Stephen Wadsworth A more revealing, soul-searching expression of the life of Astor Piazzolla—the father of Nuevo Tango—is at the heart of a revamped production of "That's Not Tango - Astor Piazzolla, A Life In Music," returning for an extended run at New York's SubCulture on June 8, 9 & 10th and for multiple performances in July. The director is Stephen Wadsworth, named one of the most influential stage directors of the 21st century by American Theatre. Conceived by Lesley Karsten and written by Karsten and Wadsworth, the team have re-adapted their 2016 tribute to plumb more intimate details of the musician's life, examining his doubts, struggles and regrets, and how they inspired and sometimes contradicted his celebrated career. The staged production has a unique gender-bending premise – the part of Piazzolla is played by a woman. As Piazzolla, Lesley Karsten delivers a compelling dramatic narrative that offers a deeper understanding of Piazzolla's life, from his rough childhood in New York to the fame he achieved for revolutionizing the traditional tango. The show unfolds through an interplay between storytelling and virtuoso performances of Piazzolla's music by JP Jofre, (bandoneon), Brandt Fredriksen (piano) and Nick Danielson (violin). "We've moved from a more straightforward narrative of the facts of his life into an exploration of the inner workings of the man," says Karsten. "The premise is simple. He's dead, hates it and returns because he has unfinished business ... with himself. He has regrets, struggles with isolation, memories of love lost. He gave what he had to give -- and the music is astonishing – but he needs to set the record straight. There's a price to be paid for immortality." Karsten and Wadsworth take us on an intimate journey into Piazzolla's past, from his childhood in New York, years that shaped the man he would become, to his death at 71 in Buenos Aires. Growing up on the Lower East Side, he was strongly influenced by the music he was surrounded by. Along with exposure to Bach, Stravinsky and Bartok, he heard klezmer from Jewish weddings, jazz from nearby clubs and tango­—an idiom he initially rejected—from the scratchy records his father played. A chance encounter with Artur Rubenstein when Piazzolla was 16 further inspired him to pursue music; he was soon taken under the wings of classical composer Alberto Ginastera and tango great Aníbal Troilo, and later went on to study with the legendary Nadia Boulanger. Through her, the composer found his true calling. From this gumbo of life experiences emerged a music that's intensely personal, yet universal and as beloved in Tokyo, Berlin and New York as it is In Buenos Aires. Since his death in 1992, Piazzolla's reputation has only grown with jazz giants like Gary Burton and Al di Meola and classical superstars like Yo Yo Ma, Emmanuel Ax and Daniel Barenboim including his works in their repertoires. His influence continues to be felt in the works of other significant composers, such as Osvaldo Golijov. As tango reaches new heights in popularity, Astor Piazzolla is taking his rightful place as a towering figure in all 20th-century music. "I hope people develop a personal relationship with the music and understand what it meant to him," Karsten says. "I want audiences to experience the man behind its urgency and power." Karsten's creative journey began when she was asked to read some Latin American poetry while a violinist performed Piazzolla in Fairfield, Connecticut. Rather willfully, Karsten admits, she rejected the poetry and adapted elements of Piazzolla's biography instead. The piece, which was part of a chamber music series, had lines out the door and around the corner. "Lesley's work as Piazzolla moves quickly beyond gender into the androgyny of the soul," says Wadsworth. "A woman in a persona so conventionally masculine, and whose music has a bald assertiveness and violence many associate with maleness, is very tango. Piazzolla was fascinated by the quick-change animus-anima exchanges between men and women dancing tango." JP Jofre is an award-winning bandoneon player and composer considered to be the premiere bandoneónista of the modern age. He has been repeatedly highlighted by the New York Times and praised as one of today's leading artists by Great Performers at Lincoln Center. His music has been recorded by Grammy winner Paquito D' Rivera, choreographed and performed by Herman Cornejo (Principal Dancer of the American Ballet Theatre). Jofre has taken his form of contemporary tango to some of the most important venues around the world, including San Antonio Symphony, San Diego Symphony, and Argentina's National Symphony Orchestra. Award-winning pianist Brent Fredriksen is the Music Director of the show. He is a founding member of New York's Ensemble Respiro. He has held debut recitals at Weill Recital Hall, Gasteig Cultural Center, and Vafopoulio Hall, and has performed with numerous renowned ensembles. In 2003, he was selected by the U.S. and China Foundation to perform recitals and concerts throughout China. He has several recordings, and has also recorded solo piano music for the soundtrack of the award-winning documentary film, Sonia, and chamber music composed by Nickitas Demos for the film A Free Bird. Most recently he recorded piano for New Music from Greek and Greek-American Composers for Albany Records. Among his many collaborations, violinist Nick Danielson has performed and recorded at venues such as Jazz at Lincoln Center with world renowned tango and contemporary Argentinian ensembles and musicians such as Paquito D'Rivera, Pablo Ziegler, and Wynton Marsalis. He has performed on Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning recordings in both genres and has recorded two solo albums. He is the Assistant Concertmaster of the New York City Ballet Orchestra. Stephen Wadsworth is a veteran of Broadway, the West End and opera companies throughout Europe and the US, including the Met. He has directed such wildly diverse playwrights such as: Terrence McNally, Anna Deavere Smith, Beth Henley, Ken Ludwig, and composers Peter Lieberson and Daron Hagen. Working with Leonard Bernstein, he wrote the Grammy-nominated opera A Quiet Place. He was a Playwriting Fellow for Sundance at the Ucross Foundation and the McCarter Theatre, and currently teaches directing at Juilliard. Story and Musical Consultants include: Kip Hanrahan, Piazzolla's longtime associate and the producer of his seminal CDs Tango Zero Hour and La Camorra, and Fernando Gonzalez music critic, writer and translator of Natalio Gorin's "Astor Piazzolla: A Memoir." Dates: June 8 @ 7pm June 9 @ 2pm and 7pm June 10 @ 3pm July 18, July 19, 25, July 26 @7pm Ticket: $35 $15 cash-only rush ticket one hour before the show (current student or educator ID required).

Seasons of Brahms - Merkin Concert Hall
Through June 10, 2018 - New York

Chamber works from the dawn and dusk of Brahms' long career encompass a lifetime in a single program. Inspired by the playing of clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld, Brahms came out of retirement to write his Clarinet Quintet in B Minor, a late masterpiece that flickers between autumnal wistfulness and rhapsodic—even gypsy—exuberance. Retrospective glances and unanswered questions abound as the quintet muses over itself as over a life lived, ending enigmatically at its own beginning. Reaching back in time is the early String Sextet No.1, a work of utter confidence conceived when Brahms was 27. Written for an unconventional ensemble that features two cellos and two violas, the Sextet revels in the rich sonorities of Brahms' beloved lower strings while bursting with the brio of youth.

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).

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through June 11, 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.

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.

Life Is But A Dream

Maria José Cabral - Agora Gallery
Through June 12, 2018 - New York

Life Is But A Dream Maria José Cabral's mixed-media works stem from an ongoing engagement with leisure-time as the generative source underlying authentic relationships. 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.

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.

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

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.

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."

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.

Film Screening: The Worker's Cup - Museum of Moving Image
Through June 17, 2018 - Queens

The opening-night film at last year’s SUNDANCE Film Festival and premiering for the FIRST time in theaters in nationwide, THE WORKERS CUP offers a never-seen-before level of access inside the labor camps of Qatar, where the 2022 FIFA World Cup is being built on the backs of 1.6 million migrant workers. The film follows a team of laborers living a real-life version of fantasy football -- a dark fantasy. By day they sweat in perilous conditions to build the venues for World Cup; by night they compete in a “workers welfare” soccer tournament, playing in the same stadiums that will one day host the world’s greatest players. We join one team of men from Nepal, India, Ghana, and Kenya whose only common ground is their love for soccer and their desires to earn better lives. Each match offers them a momentary escape from the homesickness, danger, and isolation they endure as the lowest class in the world’s richest country. Website: http://bit.ly/TheWorkersCupOfficial Trailer: http://bit.ly/WorkersCupTrailer Here’s what critics are saying about THE WORKERS CUP: “a RIVETING underdog tale.” - Screen Daily “REQUIRED VIEWING.” - The Guardian “Remarkable INSIDE ACCESS.” - Variety “An INTIMATE PORTRAIT.” - The Washington Post You can help!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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

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.

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.

Take the uplifting journey with these dreamers–and the young coaches who inspire them along the way–as they battle self-doubt, stereotypes, and even each other for a chance to bust a move at center court in front of the 20,000 screaming fans. Together they remind us that in life, when the odds are stacked against you and the challenges seem too great to overcome, it's not the end of the game–it's Half Time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

From 2015–16, she received a research fellowship from the Japan Foundation Asia Center to conduct fieldwork about practices of art writing in Indonesia, Philippines, and Japan. Last year, she initiated a collaborative project titled "To Whom It May Concern"; started as a laboratory exhibition at Bangkok CityCity Gallery, the project has now developed into a Thai-English online platform for collective learning.

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.

Through August 05, 2018 - New York

This docudrama with music chronicles the true story of nine brave students poised to integrate the formerly all-white Little Rock Central High School. At the dawn of the civil rights movement, three years after Thurgood Marshall successfully litigated the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case, Little Rock, Arkansas became ground zero in the fight to integrate public schools across America. Through a series of events and with the aid of an emerging technology called television, living rooms across the world would witness a real life drama featuring a brave and stalwart group of black teenagers, who would become known as The Little Rock Nine, along with a supporting cast including a defiant Governor, a resolute President Eisenhower, and 11,000 federal and state troops. 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Reza Abdoh - The Museum of Modern Art
Through September 03, 2018 - Manhattan

Though he was only thirty-two at the time of his passing, the Iranian-American theater director Reza Abdoh's (1963-95) mark on the world of theater was unmistakable. Relentlessly inventive, he pushed his actors—and audiences—to their limits amid ambitious, unusual, disorienting stage sets. Abdoh's aesthetic language borrowed from fairy tales, BDSM, talk shows, raves, video art, and the history of avant-garde theater. This exhibition, the first large-scale retrospective of Abdoh's work, will highlight the diverse video works that Abdoh produced for his performances and an installation based on his 1991 production Bogeyman. The exhibition also includes contextual materials reflecting the club scenes in both Los Angeles and New York, the culture wars of the Reagan era, and the AIDS crisis. Abdoh died of AIDS in 1995.

Little Rock - The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
Through September 08, 2018 - New York

HISTORY CALLED IT HEROISM. THEY CALLED IT HIGH SCHOOL. LITTLE ROCK tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city's formerly segregated central high school. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow south. On the cusp of the Civil Rights movement, a changing world watched as these nine children from Arkansas battled for their rights with only a book and pencil. At once harrowing and hopeful, LITTLE ROCK brings urgently to life the Nine's untold personal stories of challenge and resilience, conjuring memories of America not so long ago. From writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, this deeply moving play honors the bravery of these young heroes and asks audiences: Would you have had the courage?

Celebrating Bill Cunningham - New-York Historical Society
Through September 09, 2018 - New York

Celebrating Bill Cunningham marks the New-York Historical Society's recent acquisition of objects, personal correspondence, ephemera, and photographs that reflect the life and work of Bill Cunningham. One of the late 20th century's most influential trend-spotters and style authorities, the legendary New York Times journalist and photographer was frequently spied on the city's streets, at fashion shows, and elegant soirées capturing images of New York's fashion innovators and cultural glitterati. Among the highlights of Celebrating Bill Cunningham are a bicycle that he rode around the city; his first camera, an Olympus Pen-D, 35mm; signature blue jacket; personal photographs of Cunningham at home and with friends; correspondence, including a few of the hand-made Valentines he frequently sent to friends; and a New York City street sign, "Bill Cunningham Corner," that was temporarily installed at 5th Avenue and 57th Street in his honor, following his death. Soon after he arrived in New York, Cunningham worked as a milliner, and items on view from his millinery line, William J., include an innovative beach hat, along with other hats and fascinators; and a press release written for the William J. spring 1960 millinery show. Also on display are selections from Cunningham's Facades, his eight-year photographic project documenting New York City's architectural and fashion history, which was shown at the Museum in 2014.

Surface/Depth - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 09, 2018 - New York

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

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.

Exhibit – Becoming Tiffany: From Hudson Valley Painter to Gilded Age Tastemaker - Lyndhurst Mansion
Through September 24, 2018 - Tarrytown

A groundbreaking new exhibition of works by legendary artist Louis Comfort Tiffany will fill the Lyndhurst Mansion and gallery this summer. Charting the development of Tiffany's career from the 1870s through the early 1900s, the display features more than 50 pieces, focusing primarily on early and rarely-exhibited works. The exhibit includes glass and mosaics from the Haworth Collection in Accrington, England, the hometown of Tiffany's glass foreman, rare textiles from the Mark Twain House, rarely seen early paintings from the Brooklyn and Nassau County Museums and furniture and decorative arts from the Driehaus and other notable private collections. Based on new research, the exhibition conjures little known and unexpected dimensions of Tiffany's career. Works in the exhibition reveal his radical exploration of racial inequality in the North, his work with the Jewish community on synagogues in Albany and Buffalo when such intermingling was not common, his pictorial documentation of rampant industrialization along the Hudson River, his adoption of Orientalist subjects, as well as his close but often difficult relationships with women patrons, collaborators, and designers. In particular, the exhibition re-establishes the reputation of Helen Gould, eldest daughter of railroad baron Jay Gould, as a significant Tiffany patron. Tiffany is one of the most popular American artists, and his later work on Tiffany lamps and stained-glass church windows is well documented. Becoming Tiffany takes a different approach to the artist's life and work and focuses on his early work as a painter and decorator, telling the story of how he used his wealth and position in society as the son of the founder of Tiffany & Co. to further his career.

    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.

    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

    Georgia O'Keeffe: Visions of Hawai'I - The New York Botanical Garden
    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

    Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
    Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

    Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.
