Roots Nyc | Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge & Special Guest Appearance - Cielo
June 20, 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.

Django Bates' Belovèd - Jazz Standard
Through June 20, 2018 - New York

All of us at Jazz Standard are pleased to welcome Django Bates for this rare New York appearance. The British pianist and composer (born 1960 in Beckenham, Kent) will lead the Belovèd trio, with bassist Petter Eldh and drummer Peter Bruun, originally formed more than a decade ago to play the music of Charlie Parker. His Jazz Standard engagement celebrates the release of Django's ECM label debut, The Study of Touch, following two well–received earlier albums by the Belovèd trio on the Lost Marble label, Beloved Bird (2010) and Confirmation (2012). "Over time, gifted player/composers sometimes sideline the first skill in favor of the second – but not Django Bates. He shines still more brightly as a piano im-proviser in his 50s as he confirms on this ECM debut…Often unfamiliarly tender and contemplative by Bates's wayward standards, the session continues to foreground this close–knit threesome's fondness for letting spontaneous ideas go where they will, rather than sustaining one dominant mood." (The Guardian)

Wine & Cheese: Women in the Industry - Eataly
June 20, 2018 - New york

It's an exciting time to be in the wine world as more and more women are making their mark in this traditionally male-dominated industry. Le Donne del Vino, or the women of wine, are not only producing unique wines, but they are also making distinct changes in the quality and earth-centrism of viticulture. La Scuola wants to show appreciation for some of the women who have paved the way in the Italian wine industry in a specially dedicated class; and, as we support female enological talent in Italy, we can't forget the women who are also making waves in the cheese industry – both domestic and Italian. In this special class, Eataly's beverage director, together with one of our talented cheesemongers, will lead a tasting and exploration of unique wines and cheeses produced by women who have become pioneers in their respective industries. In this class, guests will:

Summer in the Italian Alps: A 4-Course Chef's Table - Eataly

Sweeping across northern Italy, the Alps hold a special place in every Italian's heart. Hikers rejoice in the mountainous landscapes with their fresh breezes, pure air and beauty.

And — let's be real — we love the food in the Alps. Over the centuries, Northern Italians have borrowed and adapted dishes and techniques from the neighboring European countries of France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, and Croatia. These regions encompass a wide range of cultural differences, from regional specialties to their own dialects. At this dinner, guests will:

Dr. Dog, (Sandy) Alex G - Brooklyn Steel
Through June 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

"I feel like I'm in a totally new band right now," says Dr. Dog guitarist/singer Scott McMicken. It's a bold declaration considering he's been co-fronting the beloved indie outfit for a decade-and-a-half, but it cuts straight to the heart of the intense and transformative experience behind the group's brilliant new album, 'Critical Equation.' The most infectious and adventurous collection Dr. Dog has laid to tape yet, the record was born from a journey of doubt and discovery, a heavy, sometimes painful reckoning that ultimately brought the band closer together with more strength and clarity than ever before. Call it an existential awakening, call it a dark night of the soul, whatever it was, it fueled one of the most fertile creative periods in the group's history and forced them to confront that timeless question: what do we really want? "We'd been touring and making records for our entire adult lives, and I think we just needed to take a step back," reflects bassist/singer Toby Leaman, who splits fronting and songwriting duties with McMicken. "It was important for all of us to figure out if we were actually doing what we wanted to be doing, or if we were just letting momentum carry us down this path we'd always been on."

Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads - Brooklyn Bowl
June 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

On "Life During Wartime," the first single from Talking Heads' 1979 album Fear of Music, David Byrne famously sang the immortal lyrics, "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...no time for dancing..." Yet all those anti-fun declarations go gleefully out the window when Mystic Bowie, aka the "Head Dread," takes the stage, re-imagining and infusing fresh life into the Talking Heads' classic catalog with his high octane mix of roots reggae, ska and lover's rock (aka "romantic reggae"). Since debuting his musically revolutionary Talking Dreads project live at the High Times Music Festival on the beach in Negril in late 2015, the charismatic Jamaican-born singer and performer has electrified audiences at more than 100 shows across North America – spinning the heads of initially skeptical Talking Heads fans, and getting everyone else grooving along to the infectious, joyous rhythms and jubilant spirit of his native island.

Benefit Concert: Grizzly Bear & Spoon with Special Guest Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - Prospect Park Bandshell
June 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

Growing from humble roots into one of the most acclaimed indie rock acts of the 2000s and 2010s, Grizzly Bear began as the home recording project of Boston-bred singer Edward Droste. Holed up in his Brooklyn apartment, he laid the groundwork for the band's otherworldly debut album on a small hand-held tape recorder. His homespun effort took on new life with the help of multi-instrumentalist Christopher Bear, a Chicago native who had worked in musical projects ranging from laptop electronica to free jazz. Bear added instrumentation and vocals to Droste's sonic blueprints, resulting in 2004's Horn of Plenty.

Skintight - The Laura Pels Theatre
Through June 20, 2018 - New York

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

Planes on Paper the Sea the Sea - Littlefield
June 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

"The songs played by Planes on Paper have contemplation at their core. As heard on the Yakima duo's sole EP, Ruins, Navid Eliot and Jen Borst use delicate harmonies, well-wrought lyricism, and a deep understanding of pop songcraft to patiently explore ideas and landscapes that bloom from banal to unforgettable." Mark Baumgarten, Seattle Weekly "Navid Eliot and Jen Borst's music as Planes on Paper is built around the duo's talent for crafting layered, meticulous folk songs matched with organic, skillful playing." -KEXP - Seattle, WA - http://tinyurl.com/okfjc6e "There has been no shortage of bands that sound like Planes on Paper in the last 10 years of Seattle music, [...] which makes it simultaneously delightful and frustrating when one of them is clearly a full head taller than the others." - Sean Nelson, The Stranger - "[...] it's easy to see why Planes on Paper is starting to attract serious attention on the neo-folkie scene." -Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times "In a modern age where indie folk groups with male/female harmonies are as common as a Starbucks on every corner, Planes on Paper offer an organic alternative, refreshing in its artistry." - The Revue (full review http://tinyurl.com/qxbp5de ) "It is hard to get through this EP without a smile on your face, and all the feels in your heart." Spike Brendle, Hear & Now (full review http://tinyurl.com/hljgqdj ) "A cohesive, stark showcase of pure, unadulterated song craft." - Seattle Music Insider (full review http://tinyurl.com/lh57xes ) "This is folk music at the highest level." - Ear to the Ground (full review http://tinyurl.com/lvd8scb ) "Navid and Jen have a captured magic between them, and the result is a truly beautiful musical partnership." - indie-music.com (full review http://tinyurl.com/k6x6yyq )

Brahms & The Search for a Symphony - The Morgan Library & Museum, Gilder Lehrman Hall
June 20, 2018 - New York

The Serenade No.1 in D might have been Brahms' first symphony. But there are reasons he was reluctant to commit to that lofty genre in this ambitious early work. The spectre of master symphonist Beethoven loomed, as did that of the recently deceased Schumann, whose praise Brahms feared he couldn't live up to. "Serenade" won out over "symphony," but depth and charm abound nonetheless: the rustic pastoral opening giving way to Brahmsian pathos and sweetness; the spacious adagio, relishing in the low strings and reeds; a Mozartean minuetto; and a bounding rondo, seemingly headed for the hills. The original nonet version was destroyed when Brahms adapted it into a symphonic version—restored here by Alan Boustead.

Grizzly Bear + Spoon - Prospect Park Alliance
June 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

Grizzly Bear performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance. One of the mainstays of the indie rock scene of the 2000s and 2010s, Grizzly Bear recently came back from a five-year hiatus in 2017 with Painted Ruins, which the New York Times described as the band pushing "its music further both inward and outward" with "secrets and misgivings that are gorgeously wrapped." Previous to that, the band had put out four studio albums including Horn of Plenty (2004), Yellow House (2006), Veckatimest (2009), and Shields (2012). All of which earned them critical acclaim, fans around the world, and even an opening spot on Radiohead's 2008 tour. Having formed in Brooklyn, we are happy to welcome Edward Droste, Christopher Bear, Chris Taylor, and Daniel Rossen back to the borough. Spoon, the indie rock band from Austin, Texas, also performs at the Bandshell in support of its ninth album, Hot Thoughts. According to Pitchfork, "Spoon stay in their well-earned lane but tweak the formula just enough on their ninth album, keeping their reliably great songwriting and adding new, electronic textures." Formed in 1993, the band has been releasing music since then, including their first full-length debut Telephono in 1996, and all the way through to 2014's They Want My Soul. Overall, the work of Britt Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, bassist Rob Pope and no-longer-a-secret weapon Alex Fischel have scaled some lofty heights, and they return to the Bandshell this summer, after a benefit concert in 2008. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

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. Established in 1984, Agora Gallery specializes in connecting art dealers and collectors with national and international artists.

The Babys - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
June 21, 2018 - Bay Shore

One of the world's most beloved classic-rock bands, The Babys, are back together after a 30-something year layover! With a string of '70s and '80s classic rock radio hits like "Isn't It Time," "Every Time I Think of You," "Back on My Feet Again," "Head First", "Midnight Rendezvous", and so many more, The Babys created some of the most memorable arena anthems of their era. The shows are jam packed with material that has entire audiences on their feet – singing and dancing to every tune. Original drummer Tony Brock and original lead guitarist Wally Stocker have reformed the band with an incredible new singer, John Bisaha, whose vocals and bass playing fits The Babys to a tee, along with guitarist Joey Sykes, a renowned singer/songwriter. In concert, The Babys feature The Babettes – Holly Bisaha and Elisa Chadbourne, and keyboardist Brian Johnson. This new incarnation of The Babys created an instant buzz with their first new song in 30 years, the aptly titled "Not Ready to Say Goodbye," which was released in November 2013. It has all the classic Babys elements – amazing vocals, thoughtful lyrics and a chorus that lodges itself in your brain, refusing to leave for days. In June 2014, fans were blown away with the release of their brand new album. I'll Have Some Of That, that boasted 12 dynamic, new songs that resonate with the classic Babys sound, including the single "I See You There." That single was released at the end of 2014 and reached #5 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales Chart, and stayed in the top-10 (reaching #5 as well) on FMQB's AC Top-40 for 10 weeks.

Aurora Satler on The Ultimate New Mom's Cookbook - The Astoria Bookshop
June 21, 2018 - Astoria

 Food can be a big worry for new moms – from what to eat while pregnant and what first foods to feed a baby to what to do when faced with a picky toddler. The Ultimate New Mom's Cookbook is an essential manual for the first days of pregnancy through the toddler years, and takes the stress of out planning and cooking wholesome meals for a baby, as well as the entire family. Chef Aurora Satler and nutritionist Allison Childress anticipate every new-parent need, with recipes for stocking the freezer for those first days home from the hospital, nutritious foods for breastfeeding, and methods for introducing your child to new flavors and textures. “Nutrition begins in the womb and healthy habits are passed down from the parents,” writes Aurora in the introduction. “This book will set the foundation for your child to be a healthy eater who enjoys a wide variety of foods right from the start.” Aurora Satler graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education and previously owned her own catering company in New York City. She spent five years as the creative director of Many Kitchens, and she styled their cookbook, Recipes from Many Kitchens. She lives in New York City with her husband and two young children.

Wyer is a composer and musician from England with an interest in storytelling and innovation.

Avery*Sunshine w/ Kathy Kosins - Highline Ballroom
June 21, 2018 - New York

Some people have a calling that is undeniable and Avery*Sunshine is no exception. Yet the former church pianist/musical director, who scored a #1 Billboard chart hit, was at once a reluctant warrior. "I had no idea that my work in the church would prepare me to do what I do." Bringing people together through her riveting stage performances, candid and often humorous stage banter and optimistic anthems about love and life is what Avery*Sunshine does best. In fact she does it so well, that she has garnered praise from iconic musical figures like The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who raves, "I love Avery*Sunshine!" The Atlanta based singer's no holds barred signature soul/R&B sound has also made believers of such luminaries as Patti LaBelle, Berry Gordy and Boy George who proclaimed on twitter "@averysunshine love this woman's voice". Avery*Sunshine and her musical partner (now husband) and guitarist Dana "Big Dane" Johnson, have collectively either collaborated and/or toured with everyone from Anthony Hamilton, KEM, Will Downing, Gregory Porter, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Babyface and Roy Ayers to B.B. King, Michael Buble and Jennifer Holliday. Avery*Sunshine's #1 hit single "Call My Name" from her critically heralded sophomore project THE SUNROOM, was awarded ASCAP's Rhythm and Soul song of the year 2016 award. There have been numerous sold out shows and career milestones that have included opening for Babyface at Madison Square Garden, performing for Smokey Robinson at his Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame tribute to being invited to perform by and for the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, twice in one year. In the same year Avery was nominated for a SoulTrain award and a BET Centric Award.

They're now considered one of the leading lights in the vibrant, ever-evolving Mexican rock underground and are now poised to gain greater international acceptance. The band have thrilled both club and festival audiences all over the world - including Russia! - and have shared bills with The Melvins, Stereo Total, Faith No More, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Le Bucherettes, Explosions in the Sky and, Slayer - whose ex-drummer, Dave Lombardo had Descartes open for his Dead Cross project. The band just released their third LP - Victims of Love Propaganda - on Cleopatra records with Steve Albini at the production helm. This record is in a universe all its own!

Out of Line: 'Sin Ti,' by Yara Travieso - High Line
June 21, 2018 - West Village

"Sin Ti", is a spectacular act of intimacy between a woman and the void. Live cinema, physical storytelling, theater, music, and a room of mirrors set the stage for a one-woman sci-fi telenovela. At once intimate, voyeuristic, and drenched in spectacle, "Sin Ti" dives deep into the mind of a woman in an emotional rebellion against "the gaze". Shattering the expectations of the traditional "love story" is part of a continued dismantling process for Travieso who creates neo-feminist myths. "Sin Ti" was originally workshopped in 2015 with LMCC's Process Space Residency. Now in its third year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City's most exciting contemporary artists.

The Black Lillies - Opry City Stage
June 21, 2018 - New York

The Black Lillies have never backed down from a challenge. Proudly independent since their formation, they are always pushing forward and evolving, letting the inspiration and music take focus. That drive has led them to become one of Americana's biggest success stories: an internationally-renowned band of roots-rockers, armed with songs that blur the boundaries between folk, soul, red dirt country, blues and rock. With four albums under their belts, the band has been a mainstay on radio and album sales charts, promoting each release in the blue-collar tradition: by hitting the highway, averaging 175 gigs per year. That road-warrior work ethic has become as integral to the band's success as founder Cruz Contreras' songwriting, taking the band from coast to coast, border to border, and even country to country. And they have racked up accolades as easily as the miles on their Sprinter, winning praise from outlets including American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, NPR, CMT, Wall Street Journal and Billboard.

Bart Crow - Hill Country
June 21, 2018 - NY

Look out your window. Whether you're in a Manhattan hi-rise or at a truck stop somewhere off a Midwestern interstate, keep your eyes open. Bart Crow is coming your way. Always known as "the nice guy" with a smile on his face, the tides are turning and the gloves are coming off. Bart Crow is still the kind of guy and artist fans in the South and Midwest have grown to love. But on his new album The Parade, boundaries disappear and things are getting real. The road-toughened troubadour and his band have already logged thousands of miles playing 130+ dates a year in front of loyal rowdy crowds at far-flung, late-night clubs and concert halls all over Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska and beyond. It's his music that draws them — a tangle of roots in blues, country and down-home rock 'n' roll, branded with his unique imprint. They hear their lives in his lyrics, written in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle and other true-life troubadours. With no help from big-time labels, and money pulled from his own pockets, Crow has put together an admirable track record as a recording artist, having lofted six No. 1 singles onto the Texas Music Chart – one of which, "Wear My Ring," sold over 165,000 copies. He has sold over 40,000 albums, released five self-produced albums in just over a decade, including Dandelion, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers South Central chart. He's been cheered in Country Weekly, on CMT and in other national media outlets. His YouTube videos and concert footage have drawn more than 2.5 million views. He's chiseled his foothold in the edifice of Americana through hard work, talent, determination and a deep love for making music and building the best life he can for his wife Brooke and three kids, Townes and twins River and Parsons. Myriad spirits haunt his music– a choir of real American country in the fashion of Merle and Waylon, John Conlee, George Jones and Jerry Jeff Walker, razor-edged rock from Metallica, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, deep-fried Southern soul from Otis Redding and more. Yet in the end, Bart Crow is what you get: a blue-collar balladeer with his own unique message. It comes across loud and clear on his newest set of passionate songs and performances, The Parade. Released in partnership with Thirty Tigers, it spotlights an artist whose story will feel familiar to all Americans who know what it means to survive in challenging times. "I can relate to blue-collar folks everywhere because I don't know any difference between them and me," he insists. "My uncle is a fireman who works on a ranch on his days off. My other uncle is a fireman. My brother works as a construction superintendent. I've worked construction too. I've stained decks and built fences in 110-degree weather. My father grew up white-trash broke, a ninth-grade dropout. He eventually became a self-made multi-millionaire with his own commercial drywall corporation, but we didn't have luxury growing up." Another uncle stoked Crow's imagination about living a wanderer's life. "He was a professional rodeo cowboy," he recalls. "I used to think that was the most amazing thing on the planet. He'd come home from two or three weeks on the road and tell stories about being in Cheyenne and then somewhere else the last night. Even more than music, this idea of the nomadic lifestyle was very romantic to me." This perspective is central to The Parade, with the added element of Crow's experiences. He grew up in tiny Maypearl, Texas, made his first attempts to write songs while in the United States Army and geared up to his current regimen as a performer on weekends while studying at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX. Perhaps the most significant milestone in his past involved moving with his future wife Brooke to Austin, where they worked together to get him started as an artist. "I guess we just don't know any different way to live than with me gone for six or eight months a year. After a decade-plus, this is just who we are. This is what we do. Besides," he adds, with a laugh, "it's probably the foundation of our marriage that my knucklehead ass is gone a lot." Like the border that divides his hometown from dreams of what lies beyond in his song "City Limits Signs," Crow's boundaries are dissolving. Wedding plainspoken poetry to powerful hooks and grooves, The Parade transforms daily occurrences into stories with universal resonance. Not everyone has spent months far from home as Crow documents with irony on "Free Like Me," dreamy loneliness on "Vapor Trails" and truth telling love affair with music on "Dear Music," where he finds himself in "another where-the-hell-am-I town." Fewer still have weathered years on the honky-tonk circuit while staying faithful to their dream, a struggle Crow recounts on "Top of Rock Bottom." ("I won't be laying down on that Florida-Georgia Line," he sings, with what he insists is respect and empathy.) Still, whether you've fought to keep your own business alive or adapt to a soul-grinding cubicle gig, you'll get the message. And if you've been burned or saved by love, you'll see yourself in the deft imagery of "Queen of the Heartache Parade," the sweet pain of "One Night with You," the worldly-wise "Here We Go Again" and the insights that weave throughout "Life Comes at You Fast." New listeners may go beyond enjoying The Parade to identify with Crow as someone who knows first-hand the challenges of balancing one's dreams, integrity, responsibilities and reality. "It's pretty damn scary when you're raising a family off of touring and it becomes time to cut a new album, which means investing up to $70,000 of my own money," he admits. "My 4-year-old, Townes, starts preschool in August. Our 17-month-old twins, River and Parsons, are blowing through diapers left and right. And I've got to take money that could be going to their college funds, more money than I have in my personal checking account, sit down at the crap table of life, roll the dice and hope that someone falls in love with the 11 or 12 songs we picked." That's why Crow's dream at this point involves more than spreading appreciation for his music from coast to coast. "I want to go to Seattle and Spokane and all the West and East Coast spots and the South, to DC and Manhattan and Connecticut. and have people show up and sing along with us," he insists. "I want to hear people all over America come up to me and say, 'Hey, we got married to your song!' I'm like, 'Have you been on iTunes? Do you know how many frigging songs are on there — and you chose mine?' I don't take that lightly." No, more even than that, he wants what everyone who discovers his music wants as well. "I'd love to go to bed at night and not fear for what's going to happen next month or next year. I used to say, when we bought our tour bus, we were one backstroke away from being dead in the water. It would be nice to earn that through selling tickets and playing in so many of these beautiful cities I'd love to see." That dream is within reach now, because Crow's story is your story too. All you need to do is listen — and join The Parade.

3 Women with Anchor California Lager - Videology Bar & Cinema
June 21, 2018 - Brooklyn

Each ticket includes a pint of Anchor California Lager so you can chug along with Pinky Rose! "I've never seen a film that's more poetic and accurate about the radical extent that the human personality will bend and morph in an effort to cleave to its object of desire." – Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine Writer/director Robert Altman claims this impressionistic film came to him in a dream. Millie Lammoreaux (Shelley Duvall) considers herself irresistible to men, though in fact men have little trouble resisting her. Mysterious teenager Pinky Rose (Sissy Spacek), Millie's fellow physical therapist at a desert spa who becomes her roommate at a singles-only apartment building, at first appears to worship Millie's self-confidence but soon begins to take on aspects of her personality. Dir. Robert Altman. 1977. 124 min.

Brandon Lopez – Bass Sam Yulsman – Piano Bennett/Foster/Wooley/Lopez Nate Wooley – Trumpet Michael Foster – Saxophone Ben Bennett – Percussion Brandon Lopez – Bass Composed specifically for improvising musicians, Lamentations is named for the Book of Lamentations, though the work itself is secular and harbors no overt meaning.

Andy Jenkins - Mercury Lounge
June 21, 2018 - New York

From the front porches, alleys, and rivers of Richmond, Virginia, comes Andy Jenkins carrying a crisp, newly cut album, Sweet Bunch. Hatched in the tradition of Southern culture–unhurried in his art, unworried by external demands, yet weirdly ahead of the curve by the time he arrives–Andy is a distinctive and joyously idiosyncratic songwriting talent developed for years in obscurity. Sweet Bunch springs into the world fully-formed, the work of a confident, timeless as well as contemporary singer-songwriter, offering beautiful and basic melodies with lyrics exploring the fluidity between the banal and the sublime. His work feels natural, complete within itself, untrained musically but adherent to its own forms and intricate in its own ways. Spring peepers line the path; the author feeds her peacocks strutting among vines and ruins; a photographer waits for the right light and color in frame. Each song presents a rich, new tableau of sound, glowing worlds to discover, rooted in an unnamed sense of place.

Alberto Savinio: Les chants de la mi-mort (1914) / Nick Hallett: Scene From To Music - ISSUE Project Room
June 21, 2018 - Brooklyn

Alberto Savinio was something of a latter-day Renaissance man—an artist, a composer, and a writer who ran with Apollinaire, Picasso, and the rest of the Parisian avant-garde in the nineteen-tens. Later he left for Italy, where he founded the Metaphysical school with his more famous brother, the painter Giorgio de Chirico. To accompany an exhibition of Savinio's paintings, the Center for Italian Modern Art has unearthed a peculiar artifact of those heady times: his short, absurdist "Les Chants de la Mi-Mort" ("Songs of the Half-Dead"), a dramatic scene for piano, soprano, and baritone, chock-full of wacky glissandos and proto-brutalist touches, which will be performed at Issue Project Room on June 21. An excerpt from Nick Hallett's opera-in-progress, "To Music," about a composer's adventures on social media, rounds out the evening.

LPR Presents: Descartes a Kant at Knitting Factory - (Le) Poisson Rouge
June 21, 2018 - New York

Equal parts Pop, Metal, Punk, Shoegaze and Cabaret, the critically-acclaimed underground sextet, Descartes a Kant (Mexico City via Guadalajara, Mexico) have made a real name for themselves as an otherworldly, unpredictable theatrical live act. So much so that even the Wall Street Journal chimed to say that "(trying) to describe their music is to do it a disservice. It's loud, racy, incredibly imaginative, sophisticated, funny and wild; it's as if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs fronted Albert Ayler with Frank Zappa conducting". They're now considered one of the leading lights in the vibrant, ever-evolving Mexican rock underground and are now poised to gain greater international acceptance. The band have thrilled both club and festival audiences all over the world – including Russia! – and have shared bills with The Melvins, Stereo Total, Faith No More, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Le Bucherettes, Explosions in the Sky and, Slayer – whose ex-drummer, Dave Lombardo had Descartes open for his Dead Cross project. The band just released their third LP – Victims of Love Propaganda – on Cleopatra records with Steve Albini at the production helm. This record is in a universe all its own!

Andy Jenkins Justin Frye & Jess Paps - Mercury Lounge
June 21, 2018 - New York

From the front porches, alleys, and rivers of Richmond, Virginia, comes Andy Jenkins carrying a crisp, newly cut album, Sweet Bunch. Hatched in the tradition of Southern culture–unhurried in his art, unworried by external demands, yet weirdly ahead of the curve by the time he arrives–Andy is a distinctive and joyously idiosyncratic songwriting talent developed for years in obscurity. Sweet Bunch springs into the world fully-formed, the work of a confident, timeless as well as contemporary singer-songwriter, offering beautiful and basic melodies with lyrics exploring the fluidity between the banal and the sublime. His work feels natural, complete within itself, untrained musically but adherent to its own forms and intricate in its own ways. Spring peepers line the path; the author feeds her peacocks strutting among vines and ruins; a photographer waits for the right light and color in frame. Each song presents a rich, new tableau of sound, glowing worlds to discover, rooted in an unnamed sense of place. Andy could have found no better seedbed for this sensibility to flower than Spacebomb, a label known for offering high musicianship outside of the predictabilities of New York, Nashville, and Los Angeles. Produced by Matthew E. White, Sweet Bunch was recorded in three magical days of flow-state, the drums, bass, keys, and guitars all live and nothing to regret. The source of this musical surety lies above all with Jenkins' songwriting–natural and effortless as the glide of a swan or sailboat–matched in spirit and strength by the sweet bunch in the studio. The Spacebomb crew ran hard into midnight with a few ringers along for the ride, and a very full chorus of voices shining bright behind Andy's relaxed, self-assured singing, gently insistent as it dips and soars at every measure. Contentment in life and patience with craft is announced, almost as credo, on the opening track "Hazel Woods": Man, I would love to finish the book but I still have pages and pages of lines. Time sends out a withering look, but I pay it no mind. God, it's a drag to figure it out, but what else can I do? Nothing whatever, but to read for my pleasure, as the light passes through… Jenkins sends his warm words buoyed on cool streams of melody, to tell the greater world that Virginia has become, once again, a musical frontier. He sits at a crossroads of modernism, sensitivity and decision, with the expansiveness and musical drawl of Big Star, the bounce of Warren Zevon, and the curly, perfectly-carved melodies of Kevin Ayers. His lyrics have a tendency to stick in the mind, not straightforward storytelling, but always delivering a kind of payoff or reward. Their surrealism, closer to the origin of that term, sees the world in dualities, layered images and dreams. On the topic of love, he is soul-bearing yet light, focused outward, singing conversationally as if from driver to passenger remarking on the passing views. In a way, all of his songs are outdoor songs. Each paints a wide and wild landscape, the mood of a sun setting on a damn good day spent among friends and favored creatures. Sitting high on the hog, like a bump on a log, getting lost in the goodness of the earth.

The Memories, The Fluids - Mercury Lounge
June 21, 2018 - New York

Undefinable Brooklyn band The Fluids are here to take a sonic poleax to the clean cut rock vibe that dominates their home borough. With their debut full-length, No Kidding!, flying high as their banner, they're storming the front lines of cultural trend-setting with ripping guitar solos and saddlebags filled with tequila sodas and calamari. "We have the best pot," says lead guitarist and band (as well as actual) father Cooper "Keeper" Formant. They also have the best throat-mutilating rock and roll this side of the Brooklyn Bridge. Or any bridge for that matter. The project was born from the premortal sludge that is post-collegiate malaise, unrequited lust, and endless consumption of reality TV. Intrepid songwriter Mike Tony (rhythm guitar, lead screams) and Nick "Demo" DeMolina (keys, background yelling) first joined forces at Fordham University to chase their dream of becoming iconic beat makers -- only to abandon their goal in favor of stop-gap careers that would actually pay the rent. Trapped between corporate angst and the young stoner life (shoutout Young Thug), the pair regrouped some time later to take a different musical path, one that led in the direction of Talking Heads' unhinged art punk jukebox and Berlin-era David Bowie. Their shambolic skills were honed in a local practice space where they crafted songs around Tony's wild vocal inabilities, a speak-sing punch that rattles across shards of shattered eardrums. When a fellow patron of the rehearsal studio overheard the glorious ruckus being created by these audacious idiots, they were offered their first live gig. Completely unprepared and nowhere near a full band, they accepted the challenge. Taking their no-wave thrashing and the indomitable spirit of a MasterChef Jr. contestant to the stage only strengthened their conviction that they were cooking up something special. So impressed with himself was DeMolina that he showed video of The Fluids' first performance to his co-bartender, Format. The older, more experienced musician was all set to take this young, meme-obsessed wannabe to task for what he was sure would be another mundane outfit from a city packed with the same. Instead, he witnessed a sweaty, magnanimous display of valorous rock where structure came as an innate byproduct of deranged instincts. And he wanted to be a part of it. Formant brought his Zeppelin-esque riffage and stoned paternal nature to the band, sagely guiding them towards their full, furious potential. Finally whole, The Fluids entered 66 Rivington Studios in Manhattan's Lower East Side with producer Matthew "Pickles" Iwanusa of Caveman and producer/engineer/mixer Nico Chiotellis to record No Kidding!. Several years in the making, the record is the group's first step towards much larger goals, which include all-inclusive trips to Ibiza. Armed with Audrey Hepburn quotes and a refusal to be defined as "crisp," The Fluids will claim this world for their own. You might as well get on board now while the choice is still yours. No Kidding!

Descartes a Kant , Cleric - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
June 21, 2018 - Brooklyn

Equal parts Pop, Metal, Punk, Shoegaze and Cabaret, the critically-accliamed underground sextet, Descartes a Kant (Mexico City via Guadalajara, Mexico) have made a real name for themselves as an otherworldly, unpredictable theatrical live act. So much so that even the Wall Street Journal chimed to say that "(trying) to describe their music is to do it a disservice. It's loud, racy, incredibly imaginative, sophisticated, funny and wild; it's as if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs fronted Albert Ayler with Frank Zappa conducting". They're now considered one of the leading lights in the vibrant, ever-evolving Mexican rock underground and are now poised to gain greater international acceptance. The band have thrilled both club and festival audiences all over the world - including Russia! - and have shared bills with The Melvins, Stereo Total, Faith No More, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Le Bucherettes, Explosions in the Sky and, Slayer - whose ex-drummer, Dave Lombardo had Descartes open for his Dead Cross project. The band just released their third LP - Victims of Love Propaganda - on Cleopatra records with Steve Albini at the production helm. This record is in a universe all its own!

Set in May 1960, the play takes place when Marlene Dietrich returned to the Berlin stage for the first time since fleeing the Hitler regime in the 1930's. Inside her dressing room at the Tatiana Palast Theater, she weighs whether to go through with the live performance despite threats on her life by Nazi sympathizers who resented her for having spent much of World War II entertaining American soldiers on the front lines. To them, Dietrich is a turncoat; a traitor who deserves to be shot and killed on stage.

Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heath's imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music.

Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There's nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950?s rock &roll shaman channeling Screamin' Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand- Up Bass. And then there are the "Heatettes". Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming the night away. It's like being magically transported into a Teen Exploitation picture from the 1950?s that's currently taking place in the future.

June 22, 2018 - New York

Tredici Bacci was formed by composer Simon Hanes in the spring of 2013 as a vehicle to bring his unique musical vision to the stage, and to seduce the ears and minds of the boston underground music scene.The instrumentation of female vocals, string quartet, horns, accordion and rhythm section is specifically designed to capture the musical qualities of Hanes' initial inspiration - the music of italian films from the 1960s-70s. From giallo to spaghetti-western, Morricone to Rota to Cipriani, Hanes has made it his duty to absorb it all, and allow it to inform his original, very personal compositions. Since its impetus, Tredici Bacci has played extensively throughout the northeast, performing in bars, galleries, warehouses and concert halls, leaving a trail of Campari bottles, confetti, and whipped cream in their wake. Each performance is a celebration - the audience revels as the band deftly performs is technically demanding and cinematic music.

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.

Philippe Petit, famously known as the man who walked in the clouds between the World Trade Towers,is also a renowned master story-teller. It helps that all his tales are true and hand-picked from a very rich life of mostly self-taught creativity. During this evening, Philippe will recall (while making delightful sketches) how he learned the wire the wrong way: by gathering several ropes together to make it as wide as possible.  He will mime how an unscrupulous juggler sold him misaligned clubs proved “impossible to juggle”. Philippe might reenact a pickpocket experience from his youth, or share a bullfighting secret from the time he was a torero apprentice. And he will share the moment of the impossible task of making that first step on the wire between the Twin Towers when Philippe relives it on stage in front of you...and tells you more. Sharing an evening with the brilliant Philippe Petit is totally captivating, inspiring and uplifting.

Since their 1996 formation, they've sold a staggering 4 million albums worldwide with 2005's The Warrior's Code achieving an RIAA Gold certification and its smash single "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" nearing double platinum and appearing during a key moment of Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning The Departed. Most recently, 2013's Signed And Sealed In Blood netted their second consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200, and debuted at number 6 in Germany. The album spawned standout tracks "The Boys Are Back," "Out Of Our Heads," "Prisoner's Song," and "Rose Tattoo," a fan favorite that has accumulated 24 million views on YouTube – without the aid of being a radio hit. A special version of this song featuring the band's buddy Bruce Springsteen was released as a benefit for the Boston Marathon bombing victims.

When We See Children the Way We Are—Not the Way They Are - Adelphi University
June 22, 2018 - Garden City

The relationships that Infants and young children have with their most important caregivers are the crucial context for healthy development as well as the development of psychopathology. The kind and quality of relationships that young children have with each of their caregivers can differ substantially. As such, these relationships are the centerpiece of assessment in infant and early childhood mental health. The Working Model of the Child Interview (WMCI), also called the narrative interview, is a clinical interview that assesses how a caregiver perceives, feels, and thinks about his or her child and their relationship. This interview is a well-researched and confirms that internal, subjective aspects of the relationship are critical to understand in order to assess relationship quality and the functioning of the dyad. This information can then be used to build on strengths and intervene with concerns, in order to optimize the relationship between the child and each of their parents or caregivers.

We will include natural phenomena such as sedimentation, compression and foaming, as well as layering and burn-outs to shape the material. The only limit in this class will be our own imagination. The aim is to learn to observe the material and to link our observations to what we know about other things unrelated to glass. With the focus being on experimentation, the creation of finished and perfect objects will be secondary. Open to all experience levels.

NYC's Premier Song and Dance Variety Show features high-energy synchronized dancing, live music, and cheeky comedy...just a few of our guilty pleasures. Produced and directed by a female team, the show is filled with sultry charm and feminine energy that brings out the classic side of the cabaret experience. This production can be described as an extravaganza in which "Great Gatsby meets Mad Men meets Video Vixens." Guilty Pleasures Cabaret was founded in 2014 by six friends in New York City who wanted to produce a show that highlighted both their performing and creative talents. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born - thus earning their name "Guilty Pleasures Cabaret." The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months, moved downtown where they sold out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home, with guest appearances at Feinstein's/54 Below, The Triad, The Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret, Clocktower Cabaret in Denver, and Voodoo Comedy Lounge in Denver. In the spring of 2017, the group began performing internationally with performances in San Pedro, Belize and Bimini, Bahamas.

Tredici Bacci, Palberta [Record Release Show!], Sloppy Jane - Mercury Lounge
June 22, 2018 - New York

Tredici Bacci was formed by composer Simon Hanes in the spring of 2013 as a vehicle to bring his unique musical vision to the stage, and to seduce the ears and minds of the boston underground music scene.The instrumentation of female vocals, string quartet, horns, accordion and rhythm section is specifically designed to capture the musical qualities of Hanes' initial inspiration - the music of italian films from the 1960s-70s. From giallo to spaghetti-western, Morricone to Rota to Cipriani, Hanes has made it his duty to absorb it all, and allow it to inform his original, very personal compositions. Since its impetus, Tredici Bacci has played extensively throughout the northeast, performing in bars, galleries, warehouses and concert halls, leaving a trail of Campari bottles, confetti, and whipped cream in their wake. Each performance is a celebration - the audience revels as the band deftly performs is technically demanding and cinematic music. To date, TB has released two records - "The Thirteen Kisses EP" from 2013 and "Vai! Vai! Va! (Musica dal filmato originale)" from 2014.

Through June 23, 2018 - Manhattan

Giorgio de Chirico's younger brother, Savinio lived under the shadow of his more famous sibling.

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.

Shallow Side - Highline Ballroom
June 23, 2018 - New York

Rock is dead, they say? Hogwash. Don't even bring up such an idea with the four-piece Cullman, Alabama-bred rockers Shallow Side, who have taken it to be their personal holy mission to spread the glory of modern rock & roll as far and as wide as they can to anyone who will listen. "The energy and excitement of rock & roll is missing nowadays, and we need it now more than ever," believes Shallow Side's frontman, vocalist Eric Boatright. "Our goal is that we want to revitalize that entire genre and remind the world how rock & roll can be such a strong force in everyone's lives." The proof of Shallow Side's pure rocking prowess can be found within the deep grooves of their new EP titled ONE, which is being released by Thermal Entertainment on January 13, 2017. ONE is one tight, ass-kicking affair from the get-go, from the wham-bam all out jam of the opening track "We Roll" to the fist-waving defiance of "Rebel" to the put-up-or-shut-up manifesto of "Fight or Flight" to their all-guns-a-blazing modern-day take on a well-loved rock classic, Styx's "Renegade." (Oh, mama!) Ultimately, Shallow Side is creating new music that fuses the best intentions of classic rock with modern crunch by planting their flag at the intersection of where Shinedown meets Styx. "Not only do I respect bands like Journey and the Eagles, but I also look to current artists like Daughtry," Boatright says of his songwriting influences. "It's the people who have the rhythm, the rhyme, and the harmony. You put those things together, and you're not going to miss reaching any rock-music fan out there. They're going to be a fan of what we do immediately. As soon as the rhythm, rhyme, and harmony all kick in, they're going to enjoy it." Shallow Side's main message is one of unity. "When we first started, rock & roll wasn't for us," Boatright concludes. "We wanted to go to a concert, enjoy the music, sing along, and be a part of the overall song and dance. We're now looking to bridge that gap to bring the family together to where rock & roll was at one point. The mission since we began was to take the wheel and steer it back into a direction where everyone from all walks of life could enjoy a good rock show."

Latin America is a complex and rich fabric, interwoven with cultures influenced by its Native, Spanish and African traditions. In Inwood, we experience the flavors of this myriad of backgrounds on every corner: the foods, the fashions, the infectious rhythms of popular music and dances.

Puerto Rican mezzo-soprano Laura Virella and Dominican tenor José Heredia invite you to meet and savor this world: An evening of Zarzuela (Spanish Operetta) and Latin American art song, in the heart of our diverse Inwood.

"Critical Junctures," by Susan Vencl - Graham Center of Contemporary Dance
Through June 23, 2018 - New York

Vencl Dance returns to Graham Center of Contemporary Dance June 21-23 with "Critical Junctures," an evening of contemporary modern dance by Susan Vencl with music by Arlene Sierra. The concert premiers "Intersections," a 35 minute sextet, and presents a 33 minute reconstruction of Vencl’s 2016 meditation on randomness and unpredictability, "Long Before Afterward." After Vencl’s 2016 concert at the Graham Center, a 15 minute section of its featured piece, "Long Before Afterward," was selected for Triskelion’s Collab-Fest Showcase (November 2016). Fitting it to Triskelion’s space required reconstructing it; insights primarily about spacial principles of weight and overlap emerged. To explore them further, Vencl continued the reconstruction process after the Showcase. After that she began choreographing her new work, "Intersections," which will be danced in this upcoming concert to recordings of three works by acclaimed composer Arlene Sierra: "Insects in Amber," "Meditation on Violence" and "Four Love Songs." "Intersections" will be preceded by two Sierra solos: "Cricket-Viol" for singing violist and "Art of Lightness" for flute. Violist Wendy Richman and flutist Laura Cocks will perform live, with the music as the sole visual element.

Code Orange - Irving Plaza
June 23, 2018 - New york

Nothing lasts forever. All things decay, all things change. The mightiest empires crumble to dust as their kings bleed. Forever, it would seem, is unobtainable. Code Orange, with their new studio album, seek to obtain the unobtainable; pushing against every boundary, shedding every label. The band has grown immensely, and yet still retains the distinct edge and harshness that has become their caustic calling card. Ever defiant, Code Orange breaks any mold and refuses to be easily defined. Recorded with producers Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA and Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios in Salem, MA, FOREVER is an album without limits. Jami Morgan (Drums / Vocals), Eric Balderose (Guitar / Vocals), Reba Meyers (Guitar / Vocals) and Joe Goldman (Bass) pushed themselves to create something wholly unique and startling. "We don't just jam out and make an album. It's meticulous. It's hard. It's a lot of hours. It's a lot of frustration," Morgan remarked of the experience. "It took a lot of effort, but we wanted to create something that, when I put it on my headphones, I just knew. There was no doubt that this was it. If there was doubt, we'd scrap it and we'd do it again. It was tough getting it all to fit together, but when it did it was beautiful."

Pineapple Ride 2018 - New York City
June 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

DISCOVER NEW YORK CITY Let Us Tell You a Two-Wheeled Story of Inspiration With the increase of MTA fares, biking for us became a daily habit. We soon kicked the ritual of taking trains altogether, and now are free. Our bike rides allow us to explore the urban centers, the historic neighborhoods, the funky food spots, the culturally exquisite bars, the plentiful scenic vistas, and so much more that goes undiscovered to the everyday commuter. We felt it's only natural to combine our fervor for biking with our passion for organizing celebratory get-togethers. Inspiration Our annual rides span every borough of the great New York City, emphasizing the unparalleled mix of scenic detours with the melting pot cultures of each city neighborhood. NYC is the cultural capital of the world, and dare we say - the universe. There are more than 150 different nationalities residing in NYC and, on average, you're bound to hear 10 different languages a day. This is a city filled with the most breathtaking public parks in all of the United States, and also offers some of the planet's best places to eat. Our goal is to reveal these hidden gems and at the same time, raise money for local charities. This is a bike ride to get you from one mini event to another. Each location is carefully chosen and intentionally planned. We like breaks and we take them often. We enjoy the sunshine, the cool breeze, having a drink at a nearby bar, or chowing down on some tapas at that local Spanish joint. Charity Each year we choose a charity that we will donate to. The rides are free and donations are welcomed before and during the ride. 100% of our profit goes to charities. Why Pineapple? Pineapple is the international sign of "Welcome". Anyone and everyone is welcomed to join. The rides are not designed for speed but for discovery and exploration. Don't Have A Bike? Check with us. We might have one for you. Willing To Donate A Bike? Contact us. You'll make someone else very happy. Our excitement for biking around NYC streets and discovering cool new places has led us here, to share this experience with others like you. During September of 2014, we organized our first ride and we'd like to give a big Thank you to all who support us! Thanks for checking us out, Pineapple Ride

The Adolescents - Rocks Off
June 23, 2018 - New York

One of Southern California's best-loved hardcore bands, the Adolescents helped establish the blueprint for Orange County punk, along with Agent Orange and Social Distortion. Although their music was the most standard-issue of the three, the Adolescents' blazing energy and quintessential teenage snottiness gave them an instant connection with their audience, and defied their upbringing in California's bastion of staid conservatism. Their original lineup was only together briefly, and the majority of their limited discography was actually recorded during a late-'80s reunion. Nonetheless, their impact was an enduring one, as countless followers borrowed from their attitude and covered their best-known songs.

It's a musical gumbo Miller calls, "Americana from the wrong side of the tracks." The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls "a hell raising rock and roll party." In 2014 the band was honored by the Southern Folk Life Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibition featuring their music and cultural contributions. The flame-adorned La-Z-Boy from the cover of their Plastic Seat Sweat LP now resides at UNC-CH!

Midnights: The Dark Side of the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz + Dark Side of the Moon) - Videology Bar & Cinema
Through June 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

"Some guy with too much time on his hands had this idea of combining Wizard of Oz with Dark Side of the Moon." – David Gilmour, Pink Floyd guitarist "It's absolute nonsense. It has nothing to do with The Wizard of Oz. It was all based on The Sound of Music." – Nick Mason, Pink Floyd drummer You won't get a confession out of any member of the band, but the rumors have persisted the band: Could Pink Floyd, a band that had become proficient in film scoring by the early 1970s, who even interrupted their recording of Dark Side of the Moon to score another film, have synced their magnum opus to The Wizard of Oz? The scarecrow dances to "Brain Damage" and Dorothy wakes up just as Roger Waters opines, "home, home again/I like to be here when I can?" Is it intentional? Who knows. But it sure is trippy. Discover these and other eerie moments of synchronicity for yourself as we present The Dark Side of the Rainbow.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Jones Beach

Molissa Fenley and Company - Danspace Project
Through June 23, 2018 - New York

Molissa Fenley and Company, in collaboration with percussionist Frank Cassara and violist Ralph Farris, will present an evening of dance and live music, with scores by four contemporary composers. The program features four dances from Molissa Fenley’s Water Table, three of which are New York premieres. The program also includes a new configuration of Fenley’s 1979 work Mix. Performances are June 21–23 (Thursday–Saturday) at 8pm, at Danspace Project, 131 East 10th Street, New York, NY 10003. The dances of Water Table present the qualities of water, the abundance or lack of pure water in a geographical area, and the conditions and patterns of large bodies of water. Entrance, with music by Linda Bouchard, is inspired by the empathic coordination between the human body and water: a close proximity, a transfer of feeling and abstraction. Sargasso Sea, featuring music by Andrew Toovey, is a salutation to the Sargasso Sea in the Atlantic Ocean in which many ecosystems live in harmony and fecundity. Mali, with music by Frank Cassara, is a requiem to the land-locked country of Mali, a desert land where people walk miles for precious water, water readily available to the ruling oppressors. And The Pattern of the Surface, featuring music by Tigran Mansurian, is a dance poem inspired by a large body of water, its depth reflected by the shades of color. The program is a reprise of an evening Fenley presented at the Days and Nights Festival in Carmel, California, in September 2017. The evening also includes a new, shortened version of Mix, one of Fenley’s earliest works, commissioned by The Kitchen in 1979, and not seen in New York in nearly 40 years. The work explores a series of rhythmic phrases and ever-changing spatial patterns to the accompaniment of the dancers’ footfalls, clapping, and playing sand blocks. Fenley revived the work last summer for the company’s engagement at the Florence Dance Festival. Joining Fenley are dancers Jared Brown, Elizabeth Cooper, Holley Farmer, Giada Ferrone, Kristen Foote, Ananda Gonzalez, India Gonzalez, and Alan Good. Music is performed live by Frank Cassara and Ralph Farris. Lighting design is by Fenley’s longtime collaborator David Moodey.

Performances are Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 7pm, at Pangea, 178 Second Avenue (between 11th and 12th Streets), in Manhattan. The program opens with Cabeen's humorous, interactive solo Ready, Aim... This playful close look at the deluge of crotch flashes in contemporary dance invites the audience to literally take aim at Cabeen with rounds of crumpled-up colored paper. Cabeen and Berger's Glitter in the Gutter, described by Exploredance.com as “a wonderfully incisive comedic duet with choreography, text, and luminous performances by Cabeen and Berger,” embodies both glamour and grit, weaving together the lives of two aging performers. The program also includes Berger’s Threshold, a contemplative solo that explores the space between identities, with live music by jazz pianist Greg Woodsbie. Catherine Cabeen and Kristina Berger have been collaborating on making humor their passport through life since 2013. Cabeen makes work that celebrates the body as a site of subversion and power. She is a former member of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, the Martha Graham Dance Company, and Richard Move’s MoveOpolis! She is currently the director of her own performance company, Hyphen, and an assistant professor at Marymount Manhattan College. Berger is an international artist whose career ranges from circus showgirl to principal dancer with the Erick Hawkins Dance Company to assistant professor at Dean College in Massachusetts.

Vinicius Cantuaria - Jazz Standard
Through June 24, 2018 - New York

An entrancing solo performer, Vinicius Cantuária is a bossa nova poet who accompanies his light, João Gilberto–like vocals with caressing guitar work and gorgeous melodies. He has led a prolific recording career, having released more than a dozen albums as a leader since the early 1980s. Along the way, he has collaborated with such cutting–edge performers as David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno, Brad Mehldau, and Jenny Scheinman. "Vinicius Cantuária is the doyen of Brazilian singer–songwriters – more melodic than Caetano Veloso, more consistent than Gilberto Gil and with more talent than Max de Castro, Otto and Patricia Marx put together. If more people covered his songs, we'd be talking about him as the new Tom Jobim." (The Guardian) "Like Gilberto before him, Cantuária paints almost exclusively in tones of blue — from the deep indigo of a forlorn ballad to the azure glimmer of a slinking samba." (Variety Magazine)

Through June 24, 2018 - New York

NO REASON TO CRY is an autobiographical musical about the life of Judy Torres. Born & raised in the Bronx, Torres tells how she overcomes financial, social & physical obstacles in order to live her dreams of becoming a professional singer. Despite lacking the necessary resources, her unstoppable efforts & passion finally landed her a record deal in 1987, recording in a new genre of 80s music called Freestyle. While her first recording, No Reason to Cry, took her on a ride to the taste of some fame, some fortune & sold-out performances at world-famous venues…no one knew of her simultaneous struggles with bullying, failed relationships, a diagnosis of an incurable disease, and depression that followed her throughout her life. Now, as Torres turns fifty, she tells her tales of these struggles through music. Sharing the secret and sacred truth of her experiences & how, ironically, her own music and her fans who follow her literally saved her life. No Reason to Cry has become a mantra for many...and for Judy Torres, she hopes, her life's legacy and gift to others! In her early life, she remained silent, but, finally, in this show, Judy finally finds her voice. Listen with an open heart - as she invites you to remember that no matter how tough life gets, there's no reason to cry! "There's no reason for you to cry my love, 'cause I'll always be around. So, dry your tears, my love, I'm here...always standing by your side!"

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.)

Mindanao: The Story of Tabunaway, Mamalu and Their Descendants - La Mama
Through June 24, 2018 - New York

Mindanao will focus on the resilience of the indigenous peoples of the southern Philippines as passed through generations of oral tradition. Kinding Sindaw will bring you into the lives of these two brothers who nurtured the land through rituals that depict the cycle of life (planting, harvesting, weddings, birthing, healing).

The story is accompanied by Kulintang gong music and chants of the Mindanao tradition-bearers. Mountains and rainforests are caught in the winds of fierce typhoons of this spirited land of the naga (dragon) and the Sarimanok (mythical bird) which are brought to life through the power of Silat martial arts movement.

For centuries, the descendants of Tabunaway and Mamalu are repeatedly invaded and sieged by foreign forces. Yet, they remain steadfast and rise from the ashes as they uphold the undaunted spirit of their ancestors whose resilience keep them unconquered.

Wicked - Gershwin Theatre
Through June 24, 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 24, 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.

Sheen Center Theater Festival - The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture - Black Box Theater
Through June 24, 2018 - New York

Now entering its second year, the Sheen Center Theater Festival celebrates the voices of emerging and established Catholic playwrights. This year's full-length plays – featuring a young Nuyorican comic book artist seeking his place in the world, a Montreal family struggling with the aftermath of suicide and gun violence, and a pair of Shakespearean widows testing the freedoms and limitations of widowhood – showcase a Catholic perspective in both traditional and surprising new ways. The selected plays explore the mystery of the human person in all its brokenness and hope, as the playwrights examine faith, its loss, and the possibility of its retrieval from the lens of their own religious experience. The Sheen Center Theater Festival presents the work of Catholic playwrights, whether or not the play's subject matter is explicitly Catholic. We operate from the premise that the work of a Catholic writer will provide glimpses of a Catholic vision, no matter what their subject.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through June 25, 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.

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

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

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

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

Through June 30, 2018 - Norwalk

This gorgeous new biopic tells the true story of Henry Bates, who risked his life in the perilous Amazon in the 1850s and discovered the “beautiful proof” that supported Darwin’s groundbreaking theories of evolution and natural selection. The film re-creates Bates' 11 challenging years in the Amazon rain forest as he searches for clues about how and why species – butterflies in particular – change and adapt over time to avoid predators. In the spectacular IMAX format, the lush jungle is as beautiful as the monkeys, birds, insects and one troublesome jaguar.Variety magazine said: “While nearly all made-for-IMAX educational movies boast breathtaking visuals, this one matches its imagery with an equally memorable story.”  View the trailer at http://skfilms.ca/productions/amazon-adventure-3d/

Clockwork - Pioneer Works
Through July 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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.

Through July 14, 2018 - New York

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.

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

Others - Gallery 8
Through July 15, 2018 - New York

FACTION Art Projects presents their third New York show, Others, which explores contemporary masculinity. Others presents complex masculine identities that challenge historical depictions of strong, muscled men of stature. The works in this show portray a masculinity that is vulnerable, doubtful, idealized or pretty stimulating discussion around modern perspectives of masculinity. These three artists portray alternative masculine identities using differing styles. Unexpected visual elements of one artists’ work morph into the others. Mark Dutcher’s use of the grid in his paintings resembles the lattice backdrops in Andrew Mania’s portraits. The postures of Aaron Smith’s older subjects re?ect those of the young men in Mania’s.

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.

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.

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.

Studio Visit: Selected Gifts From Agnes Gund - The Museum of Modern Art

This exhibition celebrates Gund's contributions as art patron, collector, and longtime Trustee of The Museum of Modern Art. The presentation pays tribute to the more than 700 works of art she has funded over the past half century. These gifts have come steadily and reliably during her decades of service as a key member of several departmental acquisition committees and her tenure as the Museum's President from 1991 to 2002.

Fernando Carpaneda "New Portraits" - MF Gallery
Through July 29, 2018 - Brooklyn

Fernando Carpaneda "New Portraits" is a series of paintings and drawings depicting the beauty and the sensuality of men and women. The work seeks to provoke debates and questions about equality, in the sense of valuing the human being. Leaving inhibition aside, in scenes that depict sex, gender and relationships, the artist's "in your face" approach is meant to inspire the observer to accept diversity in human sexuality. Carpaneda takes inspiration from the urban element, and uses the language of the street along with his own experiences. Beggars, pop stars, sex workers, punks and outcasts of all kinds are the object of his attention and look. He uses DNA- be it his own hair or that of his models- and blends it with more traditional art materials to create his paintings and sculptures. In the past, Carpaneda has focused his artistic gaze exclusively on the male subject. But for this show, he has created paintings and drawings of females for the very first time. Fernando Carpaneda was one of the first Brazilian artists to exhibit homoerotic works in Brazil, and is well known in the gay arts and erotic arts world. He has been showing in international galleries since 1982, in places such as Art Basel in Miami, The Tom of Finland Foundation in California, The Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis and The Leslie Lohman Museum in New York, where he had a solo show in 2011. Carpaneda's art has been featured in books such as The Best of Punk Globe Magazine and Treasures Of Gay Art. In June 2012, some of his works were exhibited on 23 foot LED screens as part of “Art Takes Times Square” and were seen by over 1 million people. Carpaneda was also named as a Juror's Choice for Visual Art at the 2016 Seattle Erotic Art Festival. In 2015, Carpaneda created his own publication, “Carpazine”, to expose Underground music, performance and visual art. The bi-monthly magazine has featured a number of well-known and emerging artists such as Ginger Coyote, Drew Maillard, Frank Russo, Scooter LaForge, Gazelle, Leigh DeVries, Spike Polite and Manoush. The “Fernando Carpaneda: New Portraits” Opening Party, on Saturday June 23rd, (7-10pm) will also be the release party for Carpazine #15 which features Reverend Yolanda, a trans femme gender queer singer songwriter and Interfaith Minister of Music. Reverend Yolanda will be performing a few songs and signing magazines at the opening. Admission is free and open to all ages. MF Gallery is proud to be an Official NYC Pride Partner for this event. MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Baltic and Butler Streets in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Take the F or G to Bergen St., the A or C to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, or the R to Union. After opening night, the show will be open by appointment until July 29th. The artwork can also be viewed and purchased online at: www.MFgallery.net Email info@MFgallery.net or call (917)446-8681 to schedule a visit or for any other inquiries.

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. Past works by Hipkiss chronicle fictional histories of warring clans, urban crusades, and quasi-apocalyptical societies. 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.

Judha Su - Art in General
Through July 31, 2018 - Brooklyn

Judha Su is an art critic and writer, working on shifting boundaries of contemporary arts, diverse forms of artistic practices, and politics of knowledge. She perceives art as a point of contact, negotiation, and entry to imagine beyond a conditioned reality. Her current project revolves around reclaiming thinking subjectivities, a transmission of bodily and nonverbal knowledge, and a re-distribution of sensory experiences. From 2015–16, she received a research fellowship from the Japan Foundation Asia Center to conduct fieldwork about practices of art writing in Indonesia, Philippines, and Japan. Last year, she initiated a collaborative project titled "To Whom It May Concern"; started as a laboratory exhibition at Bangkok CityCity Gallery, the project has now developed into a Thai-English online platform for collective learning. Judha is also a laborer of "soi" – a space for dialogue, research, and pedagogy. Judha is in residence at Art in General from April to July 2018 through the support of the Asian Cultural Council.

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.

Little Rock - Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
Through August 05, 2018 - New York

This docudrama with music chronicles the true story of nine brave students poised to integrate the formerly all-white Little Rock Central High School. At the dawn of the civil rights movement, three years after Thurgood Marshall successfully litigated the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case, Little Rock, Arkansas became ground zero in the fight to integrate public schools across America. Through a series of events and with the aid of an emerging technology called television, living rooms across the world would witness a real life drama featuring a brave and stalwart group of black teenagers, who would become known as The Little Rock Nine, along with a supporting cast including a defiant Governor, a resolute President Eisenhower, and 11,000 federal and state troops. Integrating Little Rock Central High School would become an important and dramatic prerequisite step in implementing the new federal law. Successfully completing the school year would become its ultimate test. N.B. Strong language To receive and email alert when tickets go on sale, sign up here!

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

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

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

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

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

With public programs by Adjustments Agency, Yuji Agematsu, Germane Barnes, David J. Getsy, Gordon Hall, Helen Molesworth, David K. Ross, Martino Stierli, Aurora Tang of The Center for Land Use Interpretation, Chandraguptha Thenuwara, Jan Vorisek and more. Swiss Institute is delighted to announce the third edition of its Architecture and Design Series, entitled READYMADES BELONG TO EVERYONE. This marks the inaugural exhibition at SI's new home in the heart of the East Village, located at 38 St Marks Pl. Curated by Niels Olsen and Fredi Fischli, directors of exhibitions in the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, READYMADES BELONG TO EVERYONE features more than 50 artists, architects and collectives from 16 countries with 17 new commissions. The exhibition extends contemporary understandings of the readymade, as it has filtered through histories of art, design and architecture to become mutated, redoubled, and accelerated in urban environments of commerce and control. It has been more than a century since Marcel Duchamp reorganized aesthetic categories with his seminal Fountain (1917), creating new attention to context and found or manufactured materials. By the 1980s, such artistic conversations had evolved into strategies of appropriation even more explicitly associated with critique, especially in regard to mass-produced objects and commercial imagery. During that decade, the immediate neighborhood of Swiss Institute's new location in the East Village became an epicenter of experimentation with readymade forms: David Hammons sold snowballs to passersby in his Bliz-aard Ball Sale on Cooper Square in 1983; and works by artists such as Jeff Koons, Haim Steinbach, and Jennifer Bolande, featuring everyday items, were shown at galleries such as International with Monument, started by artists Kent Klamen, Elizabeth Koury, and Meyer Vaisman, and Nature Morte, run by artists Peter Nagy and Alan Belcher.

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

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

Skintight - Roundabout Theatre
Through August 26, 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.

The bus’ bloated form will encourage audiences to reconsider the relationship between capitalism and consumption in today’s culture, while the act of eating, according to Wurm, can be considered an additive sculptural process in its own right.

Through August 26, 2018 - New York

The cultural impact of the equation known as The Rammellzee (1960—2010) — legendary artist, graf writer, hip-hop pioneer, Gothic Futurist theoretician and New York cult icon — set the groundwork for today's interdisciplinary creative hyphenates.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro's signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women's domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro's femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women's work. Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro's subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find inspiration in her embrace of artistic practices outside the art historical canon. To highlight this legacy, works by a select group of contemporary artists, including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian, will be exhibited alongside Schapiro's signature femmages. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary work brings into critical focus the tremendous role Schapiro's femmages played in the reframing of craft and decoration, while shining a light on the way artists today, both distinguished and emerging, continue to approach the decorative as a language of abstraction tied to the personal and the political.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

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

    Georgia O'Keeffe: Visions of Hawai'I - The New York Botanical Garden
    Through October 28, 2018 - Bronx

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

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

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

    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.

    Tri-Spy Tours: Walk or Bike - Three Village Historical Society
    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.

    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.
