'Regarding Whitney' Featuring August Kleinzahler, Du Yun and Shayna Dunkelman, Carl Hancock Rux, and Esperanza Spalding - National Sawdust
June 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

As waves of 90s rediscovery and revisionism ebb and flow around her, we still don't know quite what to say about Whitney Houston, how to situate the woman and her music in the stories we tell ourselves about culture and race, superstardom and tragedy. In this special evening created by NationalSawdust+ and the London Review of Books, writers and musicians will reflect on Whitney Houston as artist, actress and icon, and help us consider her anew. Poet, critic, and melomaniac August Kleinzahler and musicians such as Du Yun and Shayna Dunkelman, Carl Hancock Rux, and Esperanza Spalding will share performances and readings inspired by Houston's sweeping body of work.

Roxana Robinson is the author of five novels, three short story collections, and the award-winning biography, Georgia O'Keeffe: A Life, which was named a Notable Book of the Year by The New York Times. Robinson has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Arts, ARTnews, and other publications.

The Gnome - Dixon Place
June 13, 2018 - New York

The Gnome invokes the figure of the gnome as an 'earth elemental' creature with whom, according to folklore, it's very important to be on good terms. The performance riffs on this figure partly as a response to current earthy and dense astrological transits. The premise: a gnome is stuck in the role of threshold guardian and on a quest to liberate themselves, asking the cosmos how we can liberate our inner threshold guardians when they feel stuck. "In The Gnome, Nekyia Theatre (named after rites that summon dead from the underworld) thoroughly dredges the cultural unconscious of the present and near future. From seasonal affective disorder and sweet-if- sadomasochistic sex to giant misplaced Instagram hashtags glowing from the Chthonic depths, familiar themes find uncanny resonances through gestures carefully timed to straddle the tricky divide between charm and terrifying entropy." –Anne Meletious, Gnostic Tapes writer

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - Music Hall of Williamsburg
Through June 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ted Leo is one of the finest songwriters of our generation, even if it's not entirely clear what generation that is. Starting in New York Hardcore with Citizen's Arrest, making the '90s safe for power-pop and Weller-esque hair with Chisel, then singing our turbulent lives like we were smarter than we were with The Pharmacists, and most recently providing equal parts sweetness and solace with Aimee Mann as The Both, Ted never let us down. And now, seven years after The Brutalist Bricks, he has a new solo album. And it's wonderful. The songs on The Hanged Man, recorded at a home-studio-in-transition in Wakefield, RI, with Ted playing almost all the instruments, are some of the finest and most finely wrought of Ted Leo's career. Ted describes the time working on the album as one of "personal desolation that felt fallow but was actually very fertile" and, indeed, lyrically, The Hanged Man is suffused with hope of sorts but crushingly heavy. The concerns addressed, whether personal trauma or the national disaster we're all currently existing in, matched with the range and vitality of the songcraft is inspiring, even uplifting.

Jimmy Eat World: Integrity Blues The Tour with Alex Lahey (2nd show) - Brooklyn Steel
June 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Before Jimmy Eat World entered the studio to record their ninth full-length album, Integrity Blues [RCA], the members of the multiplatinum Mesa, AZ rock band did something they've never done in over two decades. "We took a little break," smiles lead singer and guitarist Jim Adkins. After a successful 10th anniversary tour revisiting Futures, the musicians briefly went their separate ways at the end of 2014. Adkins released a series of 7" & embarked on his first worldwide solo tour, Lind released an EP and toured with his wife in The Wretched Desert, Linton took up boxing, and Burch opened up CaskWerks Distillery in Arizona. When the band reconvened in November 2015, they teamed up with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen [Paramore, M83] and began sifting through ideas. "I came to a realization," admits Adkins. "In the break, writing was a little trickier. I wanted to change things up. So, instead of writing about a problem, I wanted to write about a solution. If you look at your life for what's going wrong, it won't be too hard to find things. If you start looking at what you have rather than what you're missing out on, you come away from things with a much different perspective that's a lot more grateful and positive. As an album, Integrity Blues is about trying to overcome that personal struggle instead of getting upset with what life could be that it isn't." They recorded in Los Angeles with Meldal-Johnsen, offering a different setting from their usual Arizona digs. "We became willing to throw away our default responses to everything and search for the best answers rather than relying on what was familiar or comfortable. When you're younger and you make music, you do it for discovery. Being in this for a long time, it's about throwing out all of your expectations and comforts and seeing what you can do without them." With warm production and a powerful upbeat groove, Integrity Blues first single "Sure and Certain" pairs a buzzing guitar hum with an unshakable chant.

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).

Los Lonely Boys - City Winery
June 13, 2018 - New York

"We decided to call this album Revelation because we want to make music that reveals something to people about their lives and their world," says Jojo Garza. He's talking about the new release by Los Lonely Boys, the close-knit Texas trio that the bassist/vocalist shares with his brothers Henry (vocals, guitar) and Ringo (drums, vocals). "As musicians and artists, we're here to connect with people, and to share our view of things." Revelation — to be released on the band's own LonelyTone imprint Jan. 21, 2014, in association with the respected Austin-based indie Playing in Traffic — is a landmark release for the siblings. While maintaining the infectiously melodic mix of bluesy rock 'n' roll and rootsy brown-eyed soul that's long endeared Los Lonely Boys to its fiercely loyal fan base, Revelation adds an expansive range of new sonic elements, e.g. the conjunto touches of "Blame It On Love," the reggae groove of "Give A Little More," the rustic acoustic textures of "It's Just My Heart Talkin' and the baroque pop elements of "There's Always Tomorrow." "We're always trying to broaden our horizons and advance musically, and that's something that we were very conscious of in making this record," Jojo states. "We're always looking for new ways to communicate and reach people, so we experimented with a lot of different sounds and production approaches." Toward that end, the brothers also collaborated with an eclectic cast of co-writers in assembling the dozen new original songs that comprise Revelation, including alt-country icon Radney Foster, in-demand pop tunesmiths Matthew Gerrard and David Quiñones, Black-Eyed Peas collaborators George Pajon Jr. and Keith Harris, and Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli. Revelation also marks Los Lonely Boys' first recording work since Henry Garza sustained serious injuries in a fall from the stage during a February 2013 performance in Los Angeles, necessitating a lengthy and ongoing recovery period. "We nearly lost Henry, man, and that was a big change for us," Jojo acknowledges. "The whole experience was a wake-up call for us. It made us rethink every aspect of our lives and our careers, and it reminded us of what's really important to us." The abiding sense of family unity and creative rapport that allowed the band to weather such a potentially devastating event has been built into Los Lonely Boys from the beginning. Indeed, Henry, Jojo and Ringo have been making music together for their entire lives. Their father, Ringo Garza Sr., was a member of another sibling band, the Falcones, which played throughout southern Texas in the '70s and '80s. When that group disbanded, Ringo Sr. went solo, and recruited his three young sons to back him. The family relocated to Nashville in the '90s, and soon Henry, Jojo and Ringo Jr. began writing and performing their own material as a trio. After moving back to Texas, the brothers recorded their eponymous debut album in 2003 at Willie Nelson's Pedernales studio in Austin, with Willie himself guesting on the sessions. Although originally released on small Or Music label, Epic Records picked up Los Lonely Boys for major-label distribution in early 2004. The album quickly won the band a large national audience. Its lead single "Heaven" became a Top 20 pop hit, reached the #1 spot on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, and eventually won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. After a prominent guest appearance on the 2005 Santana album All That I Am, Los Lonely Boys solidified their success with 2006's Sacred, which brought two more Grammy nominations, and 2008's Forgiven, as well as the holiday-themed Christmas Spirit. Meanwhile, the band continued to build its reputation as a singularly powerful live act.

Jill Hennessy at The Loft - City Winery
June 13, 2018 - New York

Singer/songwriter, Jill Hennessy, is mostly known for her acting on Law & Order and her star turn on Crossing Jordan. She should be more widely recognized for her music career .... that's where it all started..... Busking on the streets of Toronto as a 17 year old explorer. She wrote all of the music and lyrics on her debut album, "Ghost In My Head" and she performed on the Lilith Tour with Sarah McLachlan, The Indigo Girls and the Dixie Chicks and was featured on The Indigo Girls' live album "Staring Down The Brilliant Dream". Dave Marsh from Sirius XM Radio wrote "Ghost In My Head would be an impressive achievement if it came from someone who'd made a lot of records. As a debut, it's startling— the bold singing, the edgy arrangements, the precisely phrased lyrics, the unflinching stories that gaze with equal insight upon beleaguered strangers and the people she loves best. These songs feel to me like the work of an artist who sees life whole: tragedy in a phone booth, beauty in the scars". Jill also wrote all the music and lyrics on her second album, "I Do", which was released in October 2015. "I Do" is primarily a collection of stories about love, loss and relationships - the beauty and the pain and the sacrifice between any two people At "I Do's" heart is the ability to find hope and love despite struggle and loss. Dave Marsh wrote, "On "I DO", Jill raised her own standard, and delivered completely on things that were maybe only a promise on the first record. I couldn't be happier for her... and for me. What a relief to find this gem of an album ... Stronger than the first one in a whole bunch of ways, really builds her a fortress to sing from, and the insights in the songs are as deep and beautiful as always. Brava!" Walter Price from Global Texan Chronicles wrote, "I Do is one of best albums of 2015. The power in this album is the songwriter's experiences laid out in depths and realism that many artists work full careers or even lifetimes trying to achieve. This album forgoes arrogance deciding instead to focus on not just the stellar construction of the songs and subsequently the full album but to let honesty work its gritty magic. I Do is an important album for humans who feel and are trying to work through what they are living. For a Canadian who resides in NY to capture the atmosphere of steadfast Texas sounds with hints of classic rock and so many of the great timeless singer/songwriters history have given us is more delicious icing on the cake for "I DO"" Jill Hennessy is best known for her starring roles on "Law & Order" and "Crossing Jordan". She was nominated for a People's Choice Award for her work in "Crossing Jordan" and won a Golden Satellite Award for her work in TNT's "Nuremberg" with Brian Cox and Alec Baldwin. Jill was also a regular on the HBO series "Luck", which starred Dustin Hoffman, as well as the international series "Jo" shot in Paris opposite Jean Reno. Jill was featured in several episodes of the CBS hit drama "The Good Wife" and appeared in a recurring role on the CBS hit political drama "Madam Secretary" starring Tea Leoni. Jill recently starred in the 10 episode special event series "Shots Fired" on FOX and is starring in the upcoming comedy "Crawford" on the CBC. Jill will be appearing in "Yellowstone" with Kevin Costner for the Paramount Network . She is currently shooting the Showtime drama "City on a Hill" with Kevin Bacon, executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

Simon Winchester, The Perfectionists: How Precision Engineers Created the Modern World - the New York Society Library
June 13, 2018 - New York

The rise of manufacturing could not have happened without an attention to precision. At the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, standards of measurement were established, giving way to the development of machine tools—machines that make machines. Eventually, the application of precision tools and methods resulted in the creation and mass production of items from guns and glass to mirrors, lenses, and cameras—and eventually gave way to further breakthroughs, including gene splicing, microchips, and the Hadron Collider. Simon Winchester takes us back to origins of the Industrial Age, where he introduces the scientific minds that helped usher in modern production: John Wilkinson, Henry Maudslay, Joseph Bramah, Jesse Ramsden, and Joseph Whitworth. It was Thomas Jefferson who later imported their discoveries to the fledgling United States, setting the nation on its course to become a manufacturing titan. Winchester moves forward to cutting-edge developments occurring today around the world, from America to Western Europe to Asia.

Recipe Exchange Roundtable: Garlic - Pioneer Works
June 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Led by former resident Tahir Karmali, this three-part series of participatory roundtables uses recipe exchanges and the history of ingredients as a platform to discuss migration, immigration, and cultural exchange. Each session will focus on one specific ingredient to touch on themes around trade, exploitation, colonialism, and ownership. Participants are asked to submit a recipe (can be culturally specific, completely original, or fusion) that uses the specific ingredient behind the session, and come prepared to discuss the recipe's origin and the inspiration for sharing. During the first session of our roundtable, we will delve into garlic! Garlic consumption has tripled in the United States since the 1990s. Chinese prisoners are forced to peel garlic for commercial sale. In Ancient Egypt, a garlic crop failure caused a slave revolt. Submit your garlic recipe here.

Children of a Lesser God - Studio 54
June 13, 2018 - New York

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

Live Piano Karaoke with Julian Velard - Sid Gold's Request Room

His comedic timing and musical stylings have made him a regular on The Howard Stern Show and NPR's Ask Me Another.

Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters - Forest Hills Stadium
June 13, 2018 - Forest Hills

Though Robert Plant has returned to the Welsh borders, he retains the sensibility—and the soul—of an itinerant troubadour. His diverse musical points of reference stand out like pins on a map, from Austin, Texas to Timbuktu, Mali. Plant treasures transience. On his second Nonesuch album, Carry Fire, Plant reflects on the experiences, the emotions and the sounds of where he's been, and he ruminates on where he—and our world—might be headed. Bittersweet songs of love remembered and of time passing, are juxtaposed against cautionary tales, of people and nations that have failed to learn the familiar lessons of history. "I've filled many British passports," says Plant. "It's like I'm just moving through the spheres. I feel like a mariner who has spent so much time in so many different ports of call, experiencing so many different adventures and scenarios. So perhaps this collection is more 'pictures at twelve' rather than 'pictures at eleven'." "May Queen" starts the album on an upbeat note, percussive psychedelic folk, with Plant's vocal alternating between seductive and yearning. "Carry Fire," on the other hand, is a kind of haunted desert blues, bolstered by a pulsing rhythm, ghostly backing voices, and a viola chasing the melody of an electric oud. The anthemic rock beat of "New World" visits the everlasting story of immigration, expansion and the disastrous effects on existing cultures. "Carving Up The World Again" is a more contemporary glimpse of "trouble at the border" and the futile palisades and walls. The sole cover is a pounding, trip hop-style take on Ersel Hickey's 1957 sweet and simple rockabilly hit, "Bluebirds Over The Mountain," reconceived as an otherworldly duet for Plant and the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, two iconic voices that intertwine beautifully.

Jacob Varmus, cornet, trumpet, piano Danny Fox, Fender Rhodes, piano Jason Rigby, soprano and tenor saxophone, flute Michael Blanco, bass Mareike Wiening, drums ---- The Jacob Varmus Quintet (aka Drift/Steer) engages the variances of human temperament and behavior as compositional means towords an endless realm of possibility and adventure. Using representationalism— from a southpaw's pitching mechanics to a Serbian barmaid's plaintive gaze to a physician's strange dictum-the result is a music at once subtle, mysterious, conversational, and stirring. www.jacobvarmus.com www.bandcamp.com/jacobvarmus

Belvedere Vodka Launches Single Estate Rye Series with Public Tastings - The Greenpoint Loft
Through June 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Belvedere Vodka invites vodka enthusiasts to the US launch of the Single Estate Rye Series, a vodka category innovation that is set out debunk the myth that vodka is tasteless and odorless and, that very much like in winemaking, terroir impacts the flavor profile.

Bethany Morrow: MEM w/ Jenn Baker - Books Are Magic
June 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Set in the glittering art deco world of a century ago, MEM makes one slight alteration to history: a scientist in Montreal discovers a method allowing people to have their memories extracted from their minds, whole and complete. The Mems exist as mirror-images of their source — zombie-like creatures destined to experience that singular memory over and over, until they expire in the cavernous Vault where they are kept. And then there is Dolores Extract #1, the first Mem capable of creating her own memories. An ageless beauty shrouded in mystery, she is allowed to live on her own, and create her own existence, until one day she is summoned back to the Vault. What happens next is a gorgeously rendered, heart-breaking novel in the vein of Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go. Debut novelist Bethany Morrow has created an allegory for our own time, exploring profound questions of ownership, and how they relate to identity, memory and history, all in the shadows of Montreal's now forgotten slave trade.

Brahms & the Schumanns - The Morgan Library & Museum in the Gilder Lehrman Hall
June 13, 2018 - New York

Romanticism itself couldn't have written a better drama: Brahms, Clara Schumann, and Robert Schumann as the closest friends and confidants; Robert declaring Brahms the heir of Beethoven, making him famous, before ending up in a mental asylum; Brahms and Clara flirting with love. In this program, two works by Brahms and two by the Schumanns conjure the composers' entangled relationships. The "Scherzo" from the Sonatensatz in C Minor was Brahms' contribution to a fascinating creation—a collaborative musical gift written for the violinist Joseph Joachim—that also featured movements by Robert Schumann and Albert Hermann Dietrich. In Robert Schumann's Piano Trio No.1, the most revered by the composer, pathos reigns from the start. Clara Schumann's sumptuous Romances for Violin are among the last pieces she wrote—charming and inventive. And in Brahms' Horn Trio, Op.40, a theme dating from the year of his first encounter with the Schumanns finds sumptuous form.

Mondo Cozmo - Mercury Lounge
June 13, 2018 - New York

In December 2016, a man and his rescue dog drove out to Joshua Tree in the Southern California Desert. Armed with a guitar and "a shitty 10-year-old laptop," this mohawked troubadour spent two weeks screaming into a microphone at two in the morning and bleeding all over the guitar strings in between walking his dog under the cool arid night sky and barely sleeping at the "weird house" he rented. That man was Mondo Cozmo (the dog just goes by Cozmo, and he may have some wolf and raccoon in his DNA). They left the desert with the artist's 2017 full-length debut, Plastic Soul [Republic Records], in tow.

Roots Nyc | Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge & Special Guest Appearance - Cielo
June 13, 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.

Simon Doonan: Soccer Style - Strand Book Store
June 14, 2018 - Union Square

Author Simon Doonan has two passions in life: Fashion and Football. At one time these two obsessions would have made very strange bedfellows. But times have changed: football and fashion have fallen in love. The unapologetic and unbridled style choices of today's soccer stars offer a fascinating window into the heart of the game. Looking at the beautiful game through the lens of style, Doonan entertainingly explores the magic and madness of this unique culture. Charting football style from its very beginnings, he pays homage to the great style icons of the game, from George Best to Lionel Messi, before turning his gaze to the hair, the tattoos and the cars, not to mention those other style icons of the game: the fans, the managers and, of course, the WAGs. Doonan's laser wit and hilarious observations are complemented by more than 230 photographs, making this a laugh-out-loud read for even the most fickle football fan or fashionista. Writer, columnist and football obsessive Simon Doonan is the Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York. He has worked in fashion for over 35 years, and is the author of six books, including the tongue-in-cheek style guides Eccentric Glamour and Gay Men Don't Get Fat. Simon will be appearing as a judge on upcoming NBC television show, Making It, co-hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.

Charlie Looker Presents Simple Answers with Daisy Press and special guests - National Sawdust
June 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

This concert celebrates the release of Simple Answers, the new album by native New York composer/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charlie Looker (Psalm Zero, ex-Extra Life, ex-Zs). After a decade of accolades for his work leading underground bands spanning the experimental, metal, and indie scenes, Looker releases the first record under his own name: a highly ambitious concept album, written for 17-piece chamber orchestra, singers, and electronics. This rare occasion will feature the full ensemble from the album plus special guests. Simple Answers forms a unique bridge between disparate sonic realms. The drones and dissonance of abstract modern classical composition, dramatic post-punk vocal hooks, lush 19th Century romanticism, Medieval choral beauty, horror film score cacophony, and even some rhythms and textures from trap rap and R&B, all come together in dark, cinematic epics. Special guest sopranos Daisy Press and Megan Schubert join Looker in harmony on several pieces, other times taking the lead themselves. Members of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Wet Ink Ensemble, and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra comprise the wind and brass sections, while strings are rendered by the acclaimed Mivos Quartet. Rising virtuoso pianist/composer Kelly Moran provides piano and keyboards throughout. Lyrically, the conceptual foundation of the song cycle is an equally gnarled intersection. Using as a departure point the works of two very strange bedfellows, French feminist psychoanalyst/philosopher Julia Kristeva, and American comedian Patrice O'Neal (RIP), Looker uses tropes from both thinkers' oeuvres to understand the psychology behind today's global rising tide of fascist ideology. The songs spiral through themes of power, masculinity, Jewish self-hatred, addiction, brainwashing, and the occult, often within a single line. For this concert, the ensemble will be led by renown conductor David Bloom (Contemporaneous). They will also be joined by special guest lead vocalists Doug Moore (of NY death metal experimentalists Pyrrhon), and Zohra Atash (of industrial power duo Azar Swan) performing surprise cover songs, arranged by Looker for the occasion. About the Album. Opening the evening will be the ensemble's own soprano Daisy Press, performing a solo set of the music of Hildegard von Bingen, the legendary 12th Century composer, writer, abbess, and mystic.

Jimmy Eat World, Alex Lahey - Brooklyn Steel
Through June 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

After a successful 10th anniversary tour revisiting Futures, the musicians briefly went their separate ways at the end of 2014. Adkins released a series of 7" & embarked on his first worldwide solo tour, Lind released an EP and toured with his wife in The Wretched Desert, Linton took up boxing, and Burch opened up CaskWerks Distillery in Arizona. When the band reconvened in November 2015, they teamed up with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen [Paramore, M83] and began sifting through ideas. "I came to a realization," admits Adkins. "In the break, writing was a little trickier. I wanted to change things up. So, instead of writing about a problem, I wanted to write about a solution. If you look at your life for what's going wrong, it won't be too hard to find things. If you start looking at what you have rather than what you're missing out on, you come away from things with a much different perspective that's a lot more grateful and positive. As an album, Integrity Blues is about trying to overcome that personal struggle instead of getting upset with what life could be that it isn't." They recorded in Los Angeles with Meldal-Johnsen, offering a different setting from their usual Arizona digs.

Marc Cohn in Concert - Highline Ballroom
June 14, 2018 - New York

After winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad "Walking in Memphis," Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation's most compelling singer-songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel and possessed of a deft storyteller's pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak. Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point Time magazine called him "one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade" and Bonnie Raitt declared, "Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he's an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for." Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn's early records for Atlantic as his reputation as an artist and performer continued to grow. In 1998, Cohn took a decade-long sabbatical from recording, ending in 2007 with Join the Parade. Inspired by the horrific events following Hurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date.

David Ramirez: Bootleg Tour (Live Album Recording) - City Winery
June 14, 2018 - New York

Prolific singer and songwriter David Ramirez has earned a large and growing following for his soulful, introspective songs and passionate performances. Ramirez grew up in Houston, Texas, where he became interested in music and formed a band with his friends. Influenced by '90s alternative rock, Ramirez's group primarily played parties, but he got hooked on making music, and while attending college in Dallas, he heard an album by Ryan Adams and became fascinated by contemporary folk and influential singer/songwriters of the '60s and '70s, especially Bob Dylan. In Dallas, Ramirez formed a new band and began writing songs that fused pop music with his new lyrical influences, and in 2003 he released his first album, 11503 Lansbury. Two more albums would follow -- 2005's Human and 2007's While Underneath Lights -- before Ramirez chose to break up the band and moved to Nashville to focus on acoustic music. In 2008, Ramirez traveled to Birmingham, Alabama and cut an EP, simply called Birmingham, that was the first step on his new musical journey. After leaving Nashville for Austin, Texas, Ramirez started touring extensively, playing as often as his circumstances would allow, and as he wrote more songs, he began releasing new material at an impressive rate, cranking out two albums (2009's American Soil and 2012's Apologies) and two EPs (2011's Strangetown and 2013's The Rooster) in the space of five years. Ramirez slowed down a bit after this period, though he still kept up a productive schedule, touring frequently and releasing Fables in early 2016. In December 2016, Ramirez dropped Bootleg Tour 2016, a live album recorded during several concert dates earlier that year. Make Your Inbox Mor

Samantha Fish - Rocks Off
June 14, 2018 - New York

"You should always get outside of the box," Samantha Fish says while discussing her boundary-breaking new album Belle of the West. "Challenging yourself is how you grow." After launching her recording career in 2009, Samantha Fish quickly established herself as a rising star in the contemporary blues world. Since then, the charismatic young singer-guitarist-songwriter has earned a reputation as a rising guitar hero and powerful live performer, while releasing a series of acclaimed albums that have shown her restless creative spirit consistently taking her in new and exciting musical directions. The New York Times called Fish "an impressive blues guitarist who sings with sweet power" and "one of the genre's most promising young talents." Her hometown paper The Kansas City Star noted, "Samantha Fish has kicked down the door of the patriarchal blues club" and observed that the young artist "displays more imagination and creativity than some blues veterans exhibit over the course of their careers." Having already made it clear that she's more interested in following her heart than she is in repeating past triumphs, Samantha Fish delivers some of her most compelling music to date with Belle of the West, her fifth studio album. The deeply soulful, personally charged 11-song set showcases Fish's sublime acoustic guitar skills as well as her rootsy, emotionally resonant songwriting.

Metz - Rocks Off
June 14, 2018 - New York

Since releasing their self-titled debut record in 2012, which The New Yorker called, "One of the year's best albums...a punishing, noisy, exhilarating thing," the Toronto-based 3-piece METZ have garnered international acclaim as one of the most electrifying and forceful live acts, touring widely and extensively, playing hundreds of shows each year around the world.Now, Alex Edkins (guitar, vocals), along with Hayden Menzies (drums), and Chris Slorach (bass) are set to unleash their highly-anticipated third full-length album, Strange Peace, an emphatic but artful hammer swing to the status quo."The best punk isn't an assault as much as it's a challenge —to what's normal, to what's comfortable, or simply to what's expected. Teetering on the edge of perpetual implosion," NPR wrote in their glowing review of METZ's 2015 second album, II. Strange Peacewas recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show." Recording in Chicago was a blast. We tracked fourteen songs in four days. It was the first time we felt confident enough to just play live and roll tape," Edkins said of the recording process. "Strange Peaceis much morediverse and varied than anything we've done before, which was exhilarating, but terrifying, too. We took the tapes home to Toronto feeling like we'd made the record we wanted to make."The trio continued to assemble the album (including home recordings, additional instrumentation) back in their hometown, adding the finishing touches with longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh.From the ferocious opening track, "Mess of Wires," we're met by the sheer force and fierce musicianship we've come to expect from METZ. With the unhinged, post-punk fragments of "Drained Lake," and the whirling, acerbic pop features of "Cellophane," the band's hectic progression becomes clear. But Strange Peaceisn't merely a collection of eleven uninhibited and urgent songs. It's also a kind of sonic venting, a truculent social commentary that bludgeons and provokes, excites and unsettles."The songs on Strange Peaceare about uncertainty," Edkins explains. "They're about recognizing that we're not always in control of our own fate, and about admitting our mistakes and fears. They're about finding some semblance of peace within the chaos."With all the pleasurable tension and anxiety of a fever dream, Strange Peaceis equal parts challenging and accessible. It isthis implausible balancing act, moving from one end of the musical spectrum to the other, that only a band of METZ's power and capacity can maintain: discordant and melodic, powerful and controlled, meticulous and instinctive, subtle and complex, precise and reckless, wholehearted and merciless, brutal and optimistic, terrifying and fun.

Mark Wills - Opry City Stage
June 14, 2018 - New York

The Reader's Digest version of Mark Wills' story makes it clear he's an award-winning singer's singer. His matchless phrasing, passionate and meaningful delivery and right-on-the money vocals make each and every song he performs come alive. Like a picture perfect painting, Wills' music is a vocal work of art that walks right off the canvas and into the hearts of country music lovers alike. Bringing the Wills' dimension to some of the greatest songs ever written, he's not necessarily become known for being trendy, hip or even on the cutting edge, but rather and simply as a damn good singer! "I think I'm a good storyteller to make a son g meaningful. Whether romantic or 'reality,' my focus is on the music delivery to make it my own for the people who listen—so that they can make it their own."

Cosmos Sunshine's Butterfly Effect - Bar Chord
June 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

At the age of fourteen, seeking a deeper and more expressive creative outlet, Cosmos Sunshine began playing guitar. By fifteen he was writing his own material and playing professionally; performing in as many bars, clubs & high school auditoriums near his rural Connecticut home, as would have him. After a brief stint at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Cosmos moved to New York City and began his tenure as lead guitarist, songwriter and bandleader for the 1990's juggernauts, Cherokee Sex Workshop and Walkinbird. The latter's eponymous debut album was produced by the legendary Warren Haynes, who became a mentor to Cosmos, teaching him the ways of songwriting, studio production and guitar wizardry. Those were important lessons, which still serve him today. Since that time he has been an active solo performer and the front man for the bands Los Lotharios, The Cosmos Sunshine Band and Dan Patch. In total, he has amassed a discography of four full length albums and four EPs and has played some of the best venues in New York City (Brooklyn Bowl, Irving Plaza, CBGB, Wetlands Preserve, The Nightingale Bar) and toured nationally (opening for such greats as Gov't Mule, Blues Traveler, The Spin Doctors, Johnny Winter, Lenny Kravitz and many, many more).

Field Medic, Derek Ted - Mercury Lounge
June 14, 2018 - New York

Field Medic is the lo-fi folk project of Kevin Patrick. His first release on Run For Cover Records, Songs From the Sunroom, compiles material he's recorded and released over two years from a small sunroom in San Francisco which doubled as his bedroom. At eighteen, Patrick discovered the music of Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, who changed his perspective on what a song could be and led to him developing his own style which he describes as "freak folk/post country with an emphasis on finger style guitar and lyrics." Patrick initially embraced lo-fi because he felt that his home recordings were a truer method of expressing what he was creating than anything he could do in a studio. Drawing inspiration from new wave and rap, Patrick pushed the boundaries of what a folk song could be, incorporating new elements in each subsequent release from analogue drum machines to Casio keyboards to banjo. The immediacy of that recording process and the freedom of experimentation inherent within are central to Field Medic's character, extending through his music to his freestyle, improvised mixtapes and his poetry.

Influenced by Stevie Wonder's groove to Burt Bacharach's relaxed, jazzy yet poppy sensitivities, Gabriel's trademark sound is his singing over a cello, the result being an easy listening modern chamber pop.

The Musical Theater of Leonard Bernstein: Mass - 92Y
June 14, 2018 - Upper East Side

A Year of Bernstein — A 100th-Birthday Celebration Join us as we continue to celebrate Leonard Bernstein's 100th Birthday with this year-long, twelve-lecture series exploring his extraordinary legacy as a composer of theater and concert music, conductor and teacher. This spring we focus on the musical theater of Leonard Bernstein.Mass is the quintessential Leonard Bernstein score. Commissioned to honor the 1971 opening of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, Mass is wildly and wonderfully eclectic, serious, spiritual, entertaining, profoundly felt, both of its time and ahead of its time, pointedly political and hugely ambitious, even at the risk of excess. With a text by Bernstein based on the Roman Catholic Mass, and additional lyrics and text by Stephen Schwartz, this musical theater score comes as close as any score can to capture Bernstein the artist in all of his thrilling, sometimes contradictory glory.

The current ensemble personnel also features the extraordinary rhythm section of Terry's brother, bassist Yunior Terry, and drummer E.J Strickland. Ancestral Memories' eponymously titled debut album was released in October 2017 on OKeh/Sony Records, followed by an East Coast tour concluding with a 4-night run at New York's Jazz Standard. Nominated for a Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album, Yosvany Terry's previous album New Throned King (5Passion, 2014) was based on a similar concept and seamlessly blended modern jazz with the ceremonial music of the West African and Cuban Arara culture.

Etruscans, Romans, and medieval feuding families have left an incredible artistic and cultural heritage, while priests and monks have given a fascinating religious imprint on its towns. Being relatively isolated from the outside world, locals have taken advantage of the gifts from Mother Nature to develop one of the richest cuisines in Italy and produce authentic genuine wine. Join us in this Chef's table and get a tasting of this beautiful landscape. During this Chef's Table, you will enjoy 4 traditional dishes from Umbria, created and discussed by the Chef of La Scuola, paired with 4 regional wines.

Chromeo, POMO - Terminal 5
June 15, 2018 - New York

World leaders, powerful CEOs, and other fat cats could learn a lesson or two from electrofunk duo Chromeo, namely: know thyself, know thy vibe, and stay thy course. The rest of the population will catch up. Indeed, Chromeo is really good at being, well, Chromeo. The mission, the package, the vision — it's been a straight shot of pure intentionality from the jump. Funk a game plan, Montreal natives Dave 1 and P-Thugg had a ten-year battle strategy: from cult 80s fetishists on 2004's She's In Control to indie blog darlings on 2007's Fancy Footwork, to international touring sensations on 2010's Business Casual, to bona fide pop stars on 2014's White Women.

Louis Futon - The Bowery Ballroom
June 15, 2018 - New York

Philadelphia producer Tyler Minford, aka Louis Futon, has steadily carved out his own lane in the electronic music scene over the past two years. In that short time, his remixes and singles have garnered over fifty million streams online, with his biggest single to date "Wasted On You" being released through ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective. Simultaneously, Futon has set his sites beyond the confines of the electronic scene as his productions have reached into the worlds of hip-hop and r&b as well. Not only have his official remixes of artists like Anderson .Paak and Goldlink found major success, but collaborations with r&b leaning artists like RKCB have resulted in some of his most dynamic work yet. His array of talents is already paying dividends as he's not only toured with ODESZA in the past year, but in 2017, has secured a mostly sold out headlining spring tour alongside appearances at festival staples like Splash House, CRSSD and Okeechobee. Those prime spots are no surprise as Futon has captivated fans with a unique live show that features the multi-instrumentalist playing out originals and remixes alike. With so much accomplished and in store, the forthcoming year is undoubtedly slated to be Futon's most successful yet.

Albert Lee - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
June 15, 2018 - Bay Shore

The greatest guitarist in the world."- Eric Clapton "Albert is in every sense of the word, a genuine guitar wizard".- Earl Scruggs "When Saint Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on earth, I'll be able to say – with pride if that's allowed – that for a while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee."- Emmylou Harris Guitar legend ALBERT LEE first came to prominence during a 1964-68 stint in British Blues and R & B stalwarts Chris Farlowe's Thunderbirds. After working in the UK bands for touring country acts such as Bobby Bare and Skeeter Davis, Lee's next full-time berth was two years with the UK answer to the Flying Burrito Brothers and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band-Head, Hands, and Feet. His reputation grew and session work blossomed, including appearances on "The London Bo Diddley Sessions" for Chess and Jerry Lee Lewis' "The London Sessions". This and other work with U.S. based greats led to a permanent position in the Crickets, and by the time that ended Albert had long since made Southern California his home. There he became friendly with Don Everly, who had also settled in Southern California; they played regularly on a formal and informal basis, with Albert contributing to Don's 1974 solo effort "Sunset Towers". The move to California also led to work on sessions for the debut album of Jackson Browne. Albert Lee is one of the most respected and renowned guitarists in music history, having worked with The Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris and The Cricketts over his long and illustrious career. The British-born country-rock artist started his career during the emerging rock 'n' roll scene of sixties London, when he swapped bands with the likes of Jimmy Page and Chris Farlowe.

In December 2015, alt-J finished touring for This Is All Yours. They had gone straight from touring their debut album, the Mercury Prize-winning An Awesome Wave into writing and recording the second album and then touring non-stop for it (including a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden in NY). "There weren't any fallings out," clarifies Newman. "It was just three very close friends who had just spent a lot of time on the road who needed to go somewhere where it wasn't about music or touring or capitalizing on the demand."

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."

June 15, 2018 - New York

Multi-Grammy Award winning artists Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth take percussion out of the shadows and into the spotlight with their new project, Ghost-Note. World renown for their ongoing catalog with international sensation Snarky Puppy, this dynamic duo expands their rhythmical voice into a celebration of music in all its forms. This is music that takes listeners on a mind-blowing journey, inspired by the influences of James Brown, Prince, and J Dilla to name a few. Since forming, Ghost-Note's sound has evolved to a state that can best be described as 'conscious funk' – an elaborate and sonically powerful surge of the tremendous talents that each of the players provides, with the bandleaders leaning back and letting the band go. The core lineup is a rotating cast of heavy hitters - all stretching to meet the expanding nature of the band. The explosive rhythm fueled band, deeply rooted in neck breaking funk, is comprised of the industry's best and quickly becoming one of the most anticipated live shows of today. Band members include A.J. Brown (Fred Hammond) on bass, internet star Dywane "MonoNeon" Thomas (Prince) on bass & guitar, Sylvester Onyejiaka (Prince, Quantic) baritone sax, tenor sax, & flute, Xavier Taplin (Prince) on keyboards, Jonathan Mones (Funky Knuckles, RC and the Gritz) on alto sax & flute, Mike Jelani Brooks (Kirk Franklin, RC & the Gritz) on tenor saxophone & flute, Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy) on keyboards, Vaughn "V-keys" Henry on keyboards, Daniel Jones (Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake) on keyboards, Nick Werth (Galaxe, Yak Attack) on xylosynth, and Alvin Ford Jr. (Pretty Lights, Dumpstaphunk) on drums.

Hot Rize Concert - Landmark on Main Street
June 15, 2018 - Port Washington

It didn't take long after Tim O'Brien, Pete Wernick, Nick Forster, and Charles Sawtelle first appeared onstage together in 1978 for the bluegrass music world to realize that the Colorado band, Hot Rize, was something special. And by the time they bowed off the stage as a full-time act in 1990, they'd been recognized as the International Bluegrass Music Association's very first Entertainers of the Year and nominated for a bluegrass Grammy, with a four-star album review in Rolling Stone and tours across four continents.

Steeped in bluegrass tradition, Hot Rize's music is informed by a taste for the music of Leadbelly and Freddie King, swing, old-time Appalachia and more. And when Hot Rize retired, its members went on to distinguished careers of their own.

After the death of Charles Sawtelle in 1999, the surviving members brought brilliant guitarist Bryan Sutton on board -- himself an already-acknowledged master -- and carried on with occasional appearances, bringing their classic songs and captivating stage show to new generations. Now, 40 years after their first concert, the quartet still brings something new to the table. "We've watched bluegrass evolve in the past 25 years, and while we've all been a part of that evolution as individuals, now it's time to bring a new Hot Rize statement to the world," explains O'Brien.

" Rise of the Butterfly has arrived.

Kryptonite Tour with John Bevere and Bethel Music - Beacon Theatre
June 15, 2018 - New York

Our vision for the Killing Kryptonite Tour is to create space for the Church to encounter a greater revelation of truth in a Spirit-filled and prophetic setting. With teaching from John Bevere and worship led by Bethel Music, we believe these gatherings will give the Church a powerful invitation to experience lasting transformation. As Bevere writes, "Like Superman, who can leap over any hurdle and defeat every foe, followers of Christ have the supernatural ability to conquer the challenges we face. But the problem for both Superman and us is there's a kryptonite that steals our strength. Of course, both Superman and kryptonite are fictional. But spiritual kryptonite is not." During these tour nights, John Bevere will focus on what this "kryptonite" is, why it's compromising our communities, and how to break free from its bondage. We desire that attendees will leave these nights empowered and realigned with the strength we have been designed to walk in as Christ-followers on the earth.

Children of a Lesser God - Studio 54
June 15, 2018 - New York

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

Duncan Reid And The Big Heads - Union Pool
June 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

There are only two people in the entire world who can claim to have played with the Ramones while not actually being tagged with the 'Ramone' nom-de-plume. Duncan Reid is one of those people. As singer and bass player of Joey Ramone's favourite band, The Boys, Duncan rode on the crest of a wave during punk's original late-1970s heyday as part of a wider collective of friends and peers that included Sex Pistols, The Clash, Generation X and a host of other power-chord pioneers. The Boys remain one of the best-loved and influential bands of their generation. Montevideo, from the Big Heads' debut album Little Big Head, earned Duncan the keys to the Uruguayan capital (the only other musicians to achieve this being Elton John and Paul McCartney). Following a cornucopia of stellar reviews for 1st album Little Big Head, The Big Heads developed their unique, effortlessly entertaining, melodic brand of harmony laden pop punk with: "The Difficult Second Album".

ALT-J With Kamasi Washington - Forest Hills Stadium
June 15, 2018 - Forest Hills

RELAXER is alt-J's third album, the follow up to the band's Grammy-nominated This is All Yours. Like the first two albums Charlie Andrews produced it. In December 2015, alt-J finished touring for This Is All Yours. They had gone straight from touring their debut album, the Mercury Prize-winning An Awesome Wave into writing and recording the second album and then touring non-stop for it (including a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden in NY). "There weren't any fallings out," clarifies Newman. "It was just three very close friends who had just spent a lot of time on the road who needed to go somewhere where it wasn't about music or touring or capitalizing on the demand." So they all went home to London. Newman watched a million films. Green released a solo album, High Anxiety (under the name Thom Sonny Green), 21 tracks of glittery, glitchy instrumental electronics. Unger-Hamilton became involved in a pop-up restaurant. Then, late last summer, they decided it was time to record a much-anticipated third album

Michael Brun Presents Bayo - Irving Plaza
June 15, 2018 - New york

MICHAEL BRUN In Haitian Creole, 'Bayo' means 'to give', which refers to both generosity in Haitian culture and the sense of duty that a new wave of Haitian musicians feel toward the country that they hope to represent on a global stage. Today, Michael Brun's Bayo conveys this uniquely Haitian concept. Bayo follows Michael's turn away from EDM to focus on a body of work inspired by his home land, which included Wherever I go and Gaya, which became certified hits in Haiti and amassed millions of play on Spotify. Like those, Bayo is rich with Haitian-cultural influences - Afrobeat, Rara, Konpa, Hip-hop, and Reggaeton beautifully weaved into Michael's own contemporary electronic style, resulting in a track that's distinctly Haitian but fits squarely in the current pop moment. Bayo is the sound of contemporary Haiti, featured on the record is Haitian pop sensation J. Perry, whose infectious voice makes the track shimmer, the king of Haitian Hip-hop Baky and rapper Strong G, who Brun discovered during a recording session on the small island of La Gonave, deliver powerful verses in traditional Haitian Creole.

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."

Deer Tick - Rocks Off
June 15, 2018 - New York

John McCauley, the songwriter behind the Deer Tick moniker, grew up in Providence, Rhode Island, where he began his career by teaching himself to play drums, guitar, piano, and pedal steel. McCauley started recording his own compositions and touring the area while still in high school, and he widened his circle after graduation by touring the entire country. Although he'd often perform solo, the young musician began piecing together a proper band, occasionally playing as a duo with drummer Dennis Ryan or with a small group. His music fit loosely into the alt-country category, but his vocals -- rough, raw, and ragged -- brought a wealth of rock and grunge influences to the sound. War Elephant Following the September 2007 release of his first album, War Elephant, McCauley's Deer Tick project began earning comparisons to Bright Eyes, Modest Mouse, and Uncle Tupelo. Although originally released via FEOW! Records, War Elephant was reissued in late 2008 by Partisan Records. Deer Tick remained with that label during the course of two follow-up albums, 2009's Born on Flag Day and 2010's The Black Dirt Sessions. The band's fourth studio outing, Divine Providence, arrived the following year, and featured 12 rowdy and raucous originals drawing inspiration from the raw power of the Stones and the Stooges. 2013's dark-hued Negativity took a more streamlined approach with producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) tightening up the band's occasionally ragged sound. Deer Tick, Vol. 1 Though they occasionally toured, Deer Tick didn't record again for nearly four years. In September of 2017, the band released not one but two albums simultaneously -- titled Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. Recorded at Memphis' famed Ardent Studios, the first disc focused on the band's softer folk-driven, Americana-tinged roots/rock style, while the second allowed Deer Tick to flex its punk-inspired garage rock muscle.

Jack Dejohnette, Ravi Coltrane, Matthew Garrison Trio - ShapeShifter Lab
June 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

NY Times Review: By Nate Chinen Oct. 11, 2015 Jack DeJohnette, who as a drummer-bandleader has rarely drawn hard distinctions between searching and finding, recently formed a trio of compatible ideals. Featuring Ravi Coltrane on saxophones and Matt Garrison on electric bass, it's both earthy and elastic, capable of sneaking in and out of song form, disinclined to rush toward resolution. During the first of its two sold-out sets at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn on Saturday night, this trio flowed through a small handful of compositions, connecting most of them with solo or duo interludes. The performance began with what felt like a spontaneous invention, nonlinear even though it had a tonal center; Mr. DeJohnette triggered electronic pings along with his cymbals, and Mr. Garrison used a sampler and a looping pedal to create trippy atmospherics on the fly. Next week the group will record its debut album for the ECM label. Then it will embark on a tour in Europe, where it has already made a strong impression, and not just because of its appealing back story, which boils down to lineage. Mr. Coltrane, 50, and Mr. Garrison, 45, are scions of important jazz artists whose lives were entwined: the saxophonist John Coltrane and the bassist Jimmy Garrison, who played in Coltrane's epochal quartet of the 1960s. Mr. DeJohnette, who is 73, has often recalled the rare privilege he had to sit in with that band, when he was coming up in Chicago.

Love is Short (Films) - New Design High school
June 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

Is it love? How do we show it? Should we even express it at all? Those are the doubts that drive these short cinematic sonnets to (mostly) fleeting moments of love and affection. New lovers banter in last night’s bachelor party costumes and two friends struggle to acknowledge their true feelings. One failed lover flees his troubles by biking up a mountain, while another broken heart is healed by a surprise found in the toilet. When trapped within the hothouse of love it’s hard to tell if the warmth will last long. These short films will help it linger a little longer.

Opening Reception for ModernDance - Wolfs Lane Park and Rockwells Restaurant
June 15, 2018 - Village of Pelham

Opening Reception in Wolfs Lane Park for ModernDance, an installation by Elizabeth Knowles and Bill Thielen.

Natural patterns inspire the work of Elizabeth Knowles and William Thielen. Separately they have created individual bodies of work over the last 25 years. During this time they were engaging in a dynamic, verbal dialogue on aesthetics and philosophy. Resulting from this long-term discourse is the recent collaboration the site-specific outdoor installation ModernDance. ModernDance celebrates and responds to the natural environment of landscape. Consisting of a series of colorful arches of differing sizes created from wire fencing and surveyor’s tape, ModernDance collaborates with the environmental setting in shape and size, ascending and descending in an undulating rhythm mirroring the organic tempo of the landscape. Because the installation is site specific, it changes size and shape each time it is installed. Adhering to the particular site, the installation responds in form to the configuration of the landscape with arches grouping in and out of the trees and plant growth, resulting in an endless possibility of color, form, and fusion.

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.

Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame Member, Whisperin' Bill Anderson - Opry City Stage
June 15, 2018 - New York

There's an old saying, "If you want someone's attention, whisper." Bill Anderson has been using that philosophy for almost fifty years to capture the attention of millions of country music fans around the world, en route to becoming a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and one of the most popular, most enduring entertainers of our time. He's known, in fact as "Whispering Bill," a nickname hung on him years ago as a result of his breathy voice and his warm, soft approach to singing a country song. His credentials, however, shout his prominence: One of the most awarded songwriters in the history of country music, a million-selling recording artist many times over, television game show host, network soap opera star, spokesman for a nationwide restaurant chain, and a consummate onstage performer. His back-up group, The Po' Folks Band, has long been considered one of the finest instrumental and vocal groups in the business. Bill Anderson was born in Columbia, South Carolina, but spent most of his growing-up years around Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in journalism, having worked his way through college as a disc jockey on nearby radio stations. It was while he was still in school that he began performing and writing songs. At the age of nineteen he composed the country classic, "City Lights," and began rapidly carving his place in musical history. He moved to Nashville, Tennessee, secured a recording contract with Decca Records, and began turning out hit after hit with songs like "Po'Folks," "Mama Sang A Song," "The Tips Of My Fingers," "8X10," and the unforgettable country and pop smash, "Still." His compositions were recorded by such diverse musical talents as Ray Price, Porter Wagoner, James Brown, Debbie Reynolds, Ivory Joe Hunter, Kitty Wells, Faron Young, Lawrence Welk, Dean Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Aretha Franklin, Walter Brennan and many others. Bill has been voted Songwriter Of The Year six times, Male Vocalist Of The Year, half of the Duet Of The Year with both Jan Howard and Mary Lou Turner, has hosted and starred in the Country Music Television Series Of The Year, seen his band voted Band Of The Year, and in 1975 was voted membership in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Ten years later, the State of Georgia honored him by choosing him as only the 7th living performer inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. In 1993, he was made a member of the Georgia Broadcasters' Hall of Fame. In 1994, South Carolina inducted him into their Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame. And in 2001, he received the ultimate honor, membership in Nashville's prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame.

Brian Chase's Drums & Drones with Ursula Scherrer - Mercury Lounge
June 15, 2018 - New York

Drums and Drones is the solo project of Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs / John Zorn) and is performed in conjunction with the stunning visuals of video artist Ursula Scherrer. The project uses drums and percussion as a medium for 'going inside the sound:' that of constructing expansive soundscapes, like aural snapshots of tone, to uncover the richness of sonic depth hidden within the resonance of these instruments. Similarly, the visual component investigates and reconstructs elements of found forms, whether in filmed objects or simply light itself. In the live video projections, an architectural abstraction continues to emerge and re-evolve, and layers stack to reveal shifting fields of depth and perception. Drums and Drones credits initial inspiration to La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela's legendary Dream House installation in TriBeCa, NYC. This concert will be in support of the June 15th released Drums and Drones triple album and 144 page book on Brian's own Chaikin Records. www.chaikinrecords.com www.chasebrian.com www.ursulascherrer.com On the debut Drums and Drones album/DVD:?"This stuff will put your brain into another space, and frankly, recordings that can reliably do that don't come down the pike every day." -Bruce Russell, The Wire

Bringing the NYC Music Scene to Westchester with Nalani & Sarina, Opening Act - 12 Grapes Restaurant
June 15, 2018 - Peekskill

Twin sisters Nalani & Sarina are quickly gaining national notoriety and recognition, and their "stylistic alchemy" is likely to keep them in the spotlight for years to come. Legendary music critic and Sirius radio host Dave Marsh, recently called their latest EP, Scattered World, "some of the best music being made in 2016." They say Nalani & Sarina were "born in stereo" - as identical mirror twins, Nalani plays her guitar right-handed; Sarina is a lefty. "When they're both singing and strumming, it feels like the song has come to greet the listener with arms wide open." In a pop landscape largely bereft of Asian-American voices, the twin sisters' perspective is welcome. Their songs are catchy AND meaningful, their look is dazzling, their message is courageous, and the sky is the limit.

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.

Tomorrow Forever, Matthew Sweet's fifth album of new material in this century, the first since 2011's Modern Art and 14th overall in a recording career spanning more than three decades, is teeming with his signature sounds and ongoing preoccupations. But the expansive 17-song work—available June 16, 2017 in CD, double 180-gram-vinyl LP, CD and digital configurations via Sweet's own newly launched Honeycomb Hideout imprint through Sony's RED Distribution—takes these familiar elements into previously unexplored territory, reflecting profound changes in his life. Essentially, Tomorrow Forever contemplates a knotty epistemological question: Does what is real extend beyond what the consciousness can readily grasp?

The Maribor Uprisings: A Live Participatory Film - Rooftop Films
June 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Politics has moved into the streets. In Maribor, you must decide how you'll participate. In the once prosperous industrial city of Maribor, Slovenia, anger over political corruption became unruly revolt. In The Maribor Uprisings--part film, part conversation and part interactive experiment--you are invited to participate in the protests. Drawing on the dramatic frontline footage from a video activist collective embedded within the uprisings, you begin in Maribor as crowds surround and ransack City Hall under a hailstorm of tear gas canisters. As a group, you must choose which cameras you will follow and therefore how the events will unfold. Like those who joined the actual uprisings, you will decide between joining non-violent protests or following rowdy crowds towards City Hall and greater conflict. These events stand as an example for any number of ideological stand-offs today. What sparks outrage? How are participants swept up in—and changed by—confrontations with police? Could something like this happen in your city? What would you do?

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Brooklyn Steel
June 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

A concept album to end all concepts, Murder Of The Universe is the new collection by head-bending psychedelicists King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Murder Of The Universe is a face-melting musical assault concerned with the downfall of man, the death of the planet....the murder of the whole goddamn universe. "We're living in dystopian times that are pretty scary and it's hard not to reflect that in our music," says front man Stu Mackenzie. "It's almost unavoidable. Some scientists predict that the downfall of humanity is just as likely to come at the hands of Artificial Intelligence, as it is war or viruses or climate change. But these are fascinating times too. Human beings are visual creatures – vision is our primary instinct, and this is very much a visual, descriptive, bleak record. While the tone is definitely Apocalyptic, it is not necessarily purely a mirror of the current state of humanity. It's about new non-linear narratives." Lit by thunderclaps and lightning, Murder Of The Universe inhabits a sonic landscape of death, decay, ossification, fossilisation, rebirth. It is a place occupied by wandering shape-shifting beasts, bleeding skies, pools of blood, great fires and mushroom clouds; a planet rent asunder by conflict. It may take years for its true importance to be appreciated. There are simply no capital letters large enough to convey the EPIC nature of this collection. Their tenth album in five dizzying years, the first eight tracks of Murder Of The Universe alone sees songs doing battle with one another ('Altered Beast' Pts I to IV and 'Alter Me' Pts I to III), as man, beast and automaton collide in a death grapple. Flesh and bone meets mud and metal as the listener is treated to funereal fugue pieces ('Some Context'), primordial drone-sludge ('The Reticent Raconteur'), demonic doom-chants ('The Floating Fire'), cyborg-narrated kosmiche workouts ('Han-Tyumi, The Confused Cyborg') and technicolour Outback proto-metal ('Vomit Coffin').

Story time with Jason Fulford! - Book Culture LIC
June 16, 2018 - LONG ISLAND CITY

Come to Book Culture LIC for a special storytime with Jason Fulford, author of Find Colors and These Colors are Bananas . Find Colors: A colours book with no colours - instead, die-cuts to peek through and find them yourself This introduction to colours integrates the reader's surroundings into carefully considered die-cut silhouettes, providing children the space to visually experiment. Readers will gaze around the room through a cockerel-shaped hole in search of something red, through a sun-shaped hole for something yellow, through squiggly worms for something pink. Designed for the youngest readers, this sturdy board book features 12 die-cuts made to flip and carry on a colour-seeking mission. Inspired by the Whitney Museum's approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world. These Colors are Bananas: What colour is an apple? A dog? Grass? Young readers will be amazed by the range of possibilities What colour is a banana? It can be at least 25 different shades, according to this artful swatchbook of versatile subjects. An inversion of the way we typically look at colour, this book challenges readers' predispositions towards using a particular crayon for a particular object. 11 items are each presented alongside a grid of color ranges: the "apple" page features yellows, greens, and reds; the "egg" page a range of greens to grays; even "grass" is surprising, with suggestions of pink. The read-along text is playful and philosophical, poetic and factual... all towards expanding readers' assumptions. Inspired by the Whitney Museum's approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world.

Jazz for Kids Oran Etkin's Timbalooloo Duo Workshop - National Sawdust
June 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Have you tried Jazz for Kids? Timbalooloo strives to fundamentally reimagine the way music is taught and language is formed. The Timbalooloo Method was developed by internationally renowned musician Oran Etkin. Through the Timbalooloo Method, children learn to express themselves by making instruments come alive and speak the language of music. The method adds character, humor and emotion to music. Through fun games, stories, songs and movements, children engage with rich musical and cultural heritage – from Tito Puente to Mozart, Willie Nelson to Herbie Hancock. "Our son was talking about Herbie Hancock, Mozart, Samba and African music – and he knew the difference!." – Harvey Keitel

Joan Jonas: Moving Off the Land (U.S. premiere) - St. Marks Church-In-The-Bowery
Through June 16, 2018 - New York

After over 40 years, performance and video innovator Joan Jonas returns to Danspace Project with an immersive lecture-performance drawing from literature, mythology, and the artist's collections of sketches and notes on the sea. Moving Off the Land explores "the ocean as a poetic, totemic, and natural entity, as a life source and home to a universe of beings." Jonas's video, performance, and installation works often exist in transit, and are translated and restaged into other mediums. Jonas uses herself as a screen and as a surface. Video footage of underwater scenes from Jean Painlevé's black-and-white reels of sea creatures to shots of aquariums is poetically and associatively intersected with excerpts from Herman Melville's Moby Dick, Sy Montgomery's Soul of an Octopus, and Italo Calvino's The Aquatic Uncle.

The Elastic Time Cannon - The PIT Loft
June 16, 2018 - New York

The Elastic Time Cannon is a mind bending, time blending, never ending adventure through the space-time continuum. With the suggestion of an opening line of dialogue this extratemporal cast creates an expanding and eventually collapsing universe of characters all born from the same moment in time. ETC shows are marked with causal loops, dimensional incursions, and a multiverse of high stakes moments. It's an absurd, laugh out loud thrill ride of a show!

Monsieur Periné - Highline Ballroom
June 16, 2018 - New York

One of the leading bands in Colombia's new music scene, Monsieur Periné won the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist and earned a Grammy Award nomination for their most recent album, Caja de Música. Rooted in gypsy jazz and celebrating the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Monsieur Periné's fresh style adds a variety of Latin elements to the mix. Incorporating genres like cumbia, son, bolero, tango, and samba, the band performs on traditional South American instruments from the charango, to the bandoneon, and Latin percussion. Their airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation connects 1930s Paris with the youthful spirit of modern Bogotá. It's the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia's sugar-sweet, sunshiny vocals at the very center of their signature "swing a la Colombiana" style. With the help of the illustrator José Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band has created a world of their own that comes to life in their music, their artwork, and, of course, their performances. Monsieur Periné's early 2018 album release will surely put their unique creativity on display.

"The right of freedom of expression, women empowerment, and feminism are still a goal to reach by many women and men. And it is relevant to today's concerns.

VALLETO is an all female company with diverse backgrounds who explore what the unconscious mind hides inside the body, while creating an open space devoted to female empowerment and equality for all. Their process begins as a playground for senses, imagination, identity and politics explored through a magnifying glass; their detailed movement language describes femininity, tension, intimacy, impulse, raw emotions, and self-awareness. VALLETO narrates different topics in an abstract or humorous way to reveal the relationship between the body, the objective reality and the unconscious mind in this new digital era.   The company's performances and initiatives aim to inspire, impact, and empower the global unheard voices of the current millennium. Past work has explored the complexities of female body and soul in IN(touch), domestic violence in  all women in me are, Brooklyn nightlife and humanity in  un.hide, emptiness, addiction and isolation in the digital age in  #VOIDS, and the inmaterial and spiritual part of being a human being in SOS.   In past seasons, VALLETO has performed to sold-out audiences in venues such as the East Village's Kraine Theater and Brooklyn's Center for Performance Research.

Jon Lindsay, Amigo - Pianos
June 16, 2018 - New York

Oregon-born, North Carolina-raised singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. Also part of the band The Catch Fire. Amigo is a rock and roll band. This might sound quaint or even a little passé but it's an entirely apt and appropriate description. It sounds beer-soaked but it is metaphysical. It feels heartland but it is soul-unburdening. It's decidedly American but viewed through a philosophical lens. Most importantly, it's fun. It's exuberance defined. And thus, it is rock and roll in its purest form.

Through June 16, 2018 - New York

50 Song Memoir is the new album from songwriter Stephin Merritts beloved recording project, the Magnetic Fields. This personal album, containing fifty songs, one for each year of the artists life, was released in March 2017 on Nonesuch Records. The album commenced recording on Stephin Merritts fiftieth birthday, February 9, 2015. Unlike Merritts previous work, the lyrics on 50 Song Memoir are nonfiction, a mix of autobiography (bedbugs, Buddhism, buggery) and documentary (hippies, Hollywood, hyperacusis). There is one song per year for the fifty years since the songwriters birth in 1965. In concert, the music is played and sung by seven performers in a stage set featuring fifty years of artifacts both musical (vintage computers, reel-to-reel tape decks, newly invented instruments), and decorative (tiki bar, shag carpet, vintage magazines for the perusal of idle musicians). The stage extravaganza is directed by the award-winning Jose Zayas (Love in the Time of Cholera).

June 16, 2018 - Cooperstown

Britain's Guitarist Magazine named Chambers "one of the top 50 blues guitarists of the last century." USA Today expressed that Chambers "achieves the distinctly American blues/soul/country/rock sound that the Stones used to aspire to long ago." The Florida native began his career touring with the legendary Hubert Sumlin as his guitarist and band leader until 2003, when he began performing and recording on his own. In 2013, his album "The Rock House Sessions" was nominated for a Blues Blast Music Award in 2014 for "Best Rock Blues Album of the Year." At Arts Garage, Chambers and his band will be performing songs from his newest album, "Trouble & Whiskey", as well as originals from previous albums and a few select covers. Chambers (Guitar/Vocals) will be joined by Todd Cook (Bass), Kris Schnebelen (Drums), and Mike Hensley (Hammond B3). Todd has worked with artists like Kettle of Fish and Bud Snyder (Stevie Ray Vaughn, Allman Brothers and Jeff Buckley), and Kris is formerly of "Trampled Under Foot" band). Any true blues-rock fan will not want to miss this show! Trouble & Whiskey features 10 tracks which include 7 new original Sean Chambers compositions, and 3 well-chosen covers including "Bullfrog Blues" by Rory Gallagher, 'Cut Off My Right Arm" by Johnny Copeland and "Be Careful With A Fool" by Riley B. King/Joe Bihari. "Chambers' brand of blues is a no-frills blend of Chicago, Texas, and Delta styles, played with an understated sense of ferocity. Sean came to wail, and he does so with a transparent sense of devotion and scholarship to the music he plays so well. – LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE

Street Dogs - Rocks Off
June 16, 2018 - New York

Tracing the Street Dogs' story is no easy task. One thing that all parties can agree on is where it all started. At a time when the music scene teems with mediocrity and fashion-oriented bands that are simultaneously from nowhere and of everywhere, maintaining a sense of roots, politics, and place has become this band's calling card, a way of demonstrating to the world that they most decidedly stand for something. The Street Dogs, it is somewhat of an understatement to say, are from Boston. Mike McColgan's name was already indelibly linked with the city, as he had already made his name at the helm of the Dropkick Murphys, the standard-bearers of Boston punk during the late '90s. McColgan paired with bassist Johnny Rioux to record what was to be a one-off album of new material, Savin Hill (2003). Upon arriving at the venue for the album release show, however, the band discovered a sell-out crowd with lines stretching around the corner. "Everybody was singing the songs," Rioux recalls, while McColgan adds, "the feedback we got from the very first show was electrifying." After releasing that first album on Crosscheck Records, the band embarked on a regional tour alongside the likes of Flogging Molly. It was in a conversation at a truck stop during one of these tours that McColgan and Rioux decided to make the Street Dogs a full-time endeavor. Four more albums, numerous U.S. and international tours, a deal with Hellcat Records, and a few lineup changes later, the Street Dogs have grown from a local band with a small but dynamic following to a nationally-recognized act with a sizeable fan base in both the US and abroad. With each subsequent release (2005's Back to the World, 2006's Fading American Dream, 2008's State of Grace, and 2010's Street Dogs), the band has employed an increasingly broad range of songwriting and content, emphasizing evermore that this is a group of musicians who adamantly and unapologetically have things to say. The Street Dogs are ready to graduate into the major leagues of headlining tours and high-profile albums ... if they haven't already. Watch out.

Exit Music - Green-Wood Cemetery
June 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

NY PREMIERE! Born with cystic fibrosis, 28-year-old Ethan Rice has been preparing to die his entire life. His father Ed, a Vietnam veteran with PTSD, immersed him in a world of imagination and documented it on camera, a hobby that provided relief from the fear of his son's prognosis and his own painful past. Equal parts comedy and darkness, "Exit Music" is the last year, last breath, and final creative act of Ethan as he awaits the inevitable. Interweaving home movies with Ethan’s original music and animation, his story is an unflinching meditation on mortality and invites the viewer to experience Ethan’s transition from reality to memory. In a culture that often looks away from death, this film demystifies the dying process, a universal cornerstone of the human experience.

Tragedy (All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees and Beyond) - Mercury Lounge
June 16, 2018 - New York

NYC's Tragedy: A Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond, is an over-the-top bombast of Disco, Metal, Glitter and Magic - the #1 Party Band. METAL RULES: "The greatest heavy-metal-meets-disco party you could possibly wish for." LOUDWIRE: "One of the hottest videos on the internet...this isn't just fun and catchy — it rules!" VH1: "Crazy outfits, wild hair, guitars, and locker room parties, the only question left to ask is, why hasn't this idea been adapted into a full length movie yet? We want more!" Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these six fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with the debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong, which was a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Iron Maiden, Guns N Roses and Aerosmith. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows and having stormed across the USA, UK, France, Holland, Germany and Switzerland. Subsequent albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco-Metal, The Solo Albums and The Joy of Sex have seen them spread their glittered wings to take on non Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams. In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You're the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack, then again in 2017 with Stayin' Alive, co-starring comedian Dave Hill.

Jessi Mason is a singer/songwriter whose songs are honest and intimate, her voice sweet and soulful. And her band ... kick-ass! One reviewer writes, "Mason is one of the best pop songwriters around. She travels the singer-songwriter axis with so much skill and self assurance that every song she has is a gem." Jessi just released her second EP, "Night Owl". One of the songs on that album, "This One's On Me", won her a nomination for The 16th Annual Independent Music Awards. Another song, "Blue", pays tribute to a major influence of Jessi's, the legendary Joni Mitchell. There's poetry in her lyrics, as well. "I speak fluently in your metaphor", she swoons. "And I... I wanna sing like you." In this beautiful song, she most certainly does. Jessi performs at venues such as Rockwood & the Shrine in NYC, The Mint in L.A. and many others. We're excited to welcome Jessi back to our 12 Grapes stage!

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.

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

A series of Africa-inspired dances to the music of diverse artists suggests how our hunger is satisfied in various ways in communion with nature, with animals, plants, the earth and fire, with each other in religious and secular communities, and indeed around the dinner table where we share a common meal.

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 17, 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 17, 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.

Blue Note Jazz Festival Presents: Paquito D'Rivera Ensemble - Blue Note Jazz Club
Through June 17, 2018 - New York

Paquito D'Rivera defies categorization. The winner of fourteen GRAMMY Awards, he is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer. Born in Havana, Cuba, he performed at age 10 with the National Theater Orchestra, studied at the Havana Conservatory of Music and, at 17, became a featured soloist with the Cuban National Symphony. As a founding member of the Orquesta Cubana de Musica Moderna, he directed that group for two years, while at the same time playing both the clarinet and saxophone with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. He eventually went on to premier several works by notable Cuban composers with the same orchestra. Additionally, he was a founding member and co-director of the innovative musical ensemble Irakere. With its explosive mixture of jazz, rock, classical and traditional Cuban music never before heard, Irakere toured extensively throughout America and Europe, won several GRAMMY nominations (1979, 1980) and a GRAMMY (1979). His numerous recordings include more than 30 solo albums. In 1988, he was a founding member of the United Nation Orchestra, a 15-piece ensemble organized by Dizzy Gillespie to showcase the fusion of Latin and Caribbean influences with jazz. D'Rivera continues to appear as guest conductor. A GRAMMY was awarded the United Nation Orchestra in 1991, the same year D'Rivera received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Carnegie Hall for his contributions to Latin music. Additionally, D'Rivera's highly acclaimed ensembles- the Chamber Jazz Ensemble, the Paquito D'Rivera Big Band, and the Paquito D'Rivera Quintet are in great demand world wide. While Paquito D'Rivera's discography reflects a dedication and enthusiasm for Jazz, Bebop and Latin music, his contributions to classical music are impressive. They include solo performances with the London Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony, the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Brooklyn Philharmonic. He has also performed with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra, the Costa Rica National Symphony, the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra, the Bronx Arts Ensemble, and the St. Luke's Chamber Orchestra, among others. In his passion to bring Latin repertoire to greater prominence, Mr. D'Rivera has successfully created, championed and promoted all types of classical compositions, including his three chamber compositions recorded live in concert with distinguished cellist Yo-Yo Ma in September 2003. The chamber work "Merengue," from that live concert at Zankel Hall, was released by Sony Records and garnered Paquito his 7th GRAMMY as Best Instrumental Composition 2004.

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.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through June 18, 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.

From Italy with Love - Agora Gallery
Through June 21, 2018 - New York, NY

Agora Gallery is pleased to present From Italy with Love, the first in a series of annual exhibitions featuring works by contemporary Italian artists. Including painting, collage, photography, and sculpture, this exhibition features recent works by Nello Petrucci; Cristiano Mazzoli; RABARAMA; Maurizio Zafret; Paolo Domenichini; and Angelica Pedini. Through this multi-year series of exhibitions, Agora Gallery will highlight the richness and breadth of contemporary Italian art, a genre that is underrepresented but acutely desired in New York City. This iteration is organized in collaboration with Contemply, Florence, Italy. The diverse works featured in From Italy with Love are connected through an innate engagement with figuration, a tradition inextricable from the country’s history. Through distinctive approaches, the artists in this exhibition re-envision the patrimony of figurative art and communicate varied perspectives on the body. Fragmentation, abstraction, and deconstruction feature prominently in these works that depict form but also capture mood and attitude. Isolation, enclosure, and injustice are depicted alongside narratives of ebullience and celebration. From Italy with Love will open with a reception Thursday, June 14, 2018 6-8 PM and will remain on view until June 21, 2018. Exhibition Dates: June 14 - June 21, 2018 Reception: Thursday June 14, 2018 6-8 PM Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th Street, New York, NY Event URL: https://www.agora-gallery.com/ExhibitionAnnouncement/From_6_14_2018.aspx Featured Artists: Paolo Domenichini | Cristiano Mazzoli | RABARAMA | Maurizio Zafret | Angelica Pedini | Nello Petrucci About Agora Gallery Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Chelsea’s fine art district in New York.

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.

Center for Architecture Presents: James Stewart Polshek - AIA New York | Center for Architecture
Through June 23, 2018 - New York

James Stewart Polshek explores the life and work of the 2018 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal winner. As founding design partner of the Polshek Partnership, as Dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, and as civic advocate, Polshek has advanced a singular vision, based on his core belief in the sustaining power of an architecture that synthesizes ethics and aesthetics. The exhibition presents the tapestry of Polshek's experience: inspirations and education, academia and activism, and an unwavering commitment to the social and political dimensions of the profession are interwoven in a studio culture of collaboration and an architecture of optimism, restraint, and relevance, informed by values of social responsibility and environmental stewardship. The exhibition is organized and sponsored by Ennead Architects, designed by Pentagram Design, Inc. and curated by 9th Street. It is supported by Becker & Frondorf, JB&B, Lendlease, LERA, Sciame, Severud Associates, Silman, Syska Hennesy Group, Thornton Tomasetti, Turner, and Zetlin & De Chiara.

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

Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, offers a breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all – that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend.

Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Secret Ocean 3D introduces audiences to over 30 species, illuminating behaviors captured for the first time thanks to the development of new tools that allow underwater filming in 3D, ultra- HD 5K, slow motion, macro, and with motion control, and takes them to remarkable and vibrant environments such as the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini.

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.

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.

"The Property," Ben Josephson - The Clurman Theatre
Through July 14, 2018 - New York

"The Property," a new play by Ben Josephson, is the story of a woman, two men she has loved and one man she is tempted to love, and the teenage son she stifles with good intentions. Irene, once carefree and artistic but now a low-level corporate manager alarmed by the erosion of her family's financial security, imposes two measures to shore the family up. She rents out a property -- the garden cottage that has been her current husband's retreat -- to a teacher who infatuates her. Then she inveigles her ex, who is her son's vehemently estranged but influential father, into launching the boy on a lucrative career path. What emerges is the transformation of five people on edge, and constrained by an increasingly ungenerous world, into selves that would horrify the selves they once had been. New Light Theater Project will present the play's world premiere directed by Robert Kalfin, founder of the Chelsea Theatre Center (winner of five Tony Awards, four Tony nominations and 21 Obies), who has directed widely on Broadway and Off-Broadway and was named a Legend of Off-Broadway by the Off-Broadway Alliance in 2015.

The play presents an unforgettable story of an ordinary man and his attempts at being granted a small bank loan that is absolutely necessary for him to continue on with his life. He cannot offer any guarantees or properties, only his word of honor and a promise that he will eventually pay back every single penny. The rejection of the loan by the Branch Manager leaves them both in a very delicate and hilarious situation. In typical fashion, playwright Jordi Galcerán (author of Burundanga) surprises his audiences with twists and turns until the end.

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

Anselm Kiefer: Uraeus - Rockefeller Center
Through July 22, 2018 - New York

Uraeus, Anselm Kiefer's first site-specific outdoor public sculpture ever to be commissioned for the United States will be on display this spring at the top of the Channel Gardens, facing Fifth Avenue. Ureaus, presented by Gagosian and organized by Public Art Fund and Tishman Speyer, consists of a gigantic open book with eagle's wings 30 feet in span, both made of lead, on top of a 20-foot-tall lead-clad stainless steel column. Clustered around the base of the column are further outsize lead books, while a large snake coils up the column. Lead is one of the artist's preferred materials for its soft, fluid properties traditionally associated with alchemical transformation, especially its second stage: dissolution. Kiefer is the most prominent German artist of the generation born in or shortly after World War II, a figure of international standing who was recently awarded the J. Paul Getty Medal (2017). The sculpture's cryptic title, Uraeus, refers to the erect shape of the Egyptian cobra, associated with the serpent goddess Wadjet and a symbol of power and divine authority. The wings evoke the headdresses and necklaces worn by Egyptian royalty in homage to the vulture goddess Nekhbet. Wadjet and Nekhbet were the guardians of Lower and Upper Egypt, respectively, and following ancient Egypt's unification, became the joint patrons of the civilization.

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

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

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

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

Hipkiss Bulwark - The Drawing Center
Through July 29, 2018 - Soho

Praised for their meticulously-detailed panoramic landscapes, Anglo-French artists Alpha and Chris Mason, known collectively as Hipkiss, have been collaborating for three decades on intricate drawings that interweave dystopian narratives with a personal lexicon of symbolic forms.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

    Charting the Divine Plan: The Art of Orra White Hitchcock (1796–1863) - American Folk Art Museum
    Through October 14, 2018 - New York

    Charting the Divine Plan: The Art of Orra White Hitchcock (1796–1863) explores the confluence of art, love, science, and religion in the extraordinary art of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America's first female scientific illustrators. Her marriage in 1821 to Amherst College professor Edward Hitchcock cemented a years-long friendship and collaboration based on a bedrock of faith and science, mutual respect, close observation, and mental capacity for the largest of ideas. Orra White exhibited a prodigious scientific mind and abundant artistic talent at an early age. The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband's many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband's many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy. In these, Orra White Hitchcock communicated complex scientific principles in abstract visual terms that now appear gorgeously fresh and modern. Archival letters, manuscripts, diaries, and albums place Edward and Orra White Hitchcock in the very heart of international scientific inquiry. In the early years of the nineteenth century, when the natural world was a place of wonder, Edward Hitchcock, theologian and scientist, saw the interconnectedness of God's created world, and Orra White Hitchcock made it manifest through her art for all to comprehend and marvel.

    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.

    Edible Academy Fresh From the Garden Tastings - The New York Botanical Garden
    Through October 18, 2018 - Bronx

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

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

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

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

Visitors will experience a lush flower show in the Garden’s Enid A. Haupt Conservatory evoking the gardens and landscapes that inspired O’Keeffe as well as the complex story of the flora and unique ecology of Hawai‘i.

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

    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.

    For Kids: A Closer Look: Georgia O'Keeffe and Hawai'I - The New York Botanical Garden
    Through October 28, 2018 - Bronx

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

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

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

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

    Through November 23, 2018 - Setauket-East Setauket

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

The film re-creates Bates' 11 challenging years in the Amazon rain forest as he searches for clues about how and why species – butterflies in particular – change and adapt over time to avoid predators. In the spectacular IMAX format, the lush jungle is as beautiful as the monkeys, birds, insects and one troublesome jaguar.Variety magazine said: “While nearly all made-for-IMAX educational movies boast breathtaking visuals, this one matches its imagery with an equally memorable story.”  View the trailer at http://skfilms.ca/productions/amazon-adventure-3d/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.
