What They Said About Love - The PIT Loft
June 27, 2018 - New York

In the award-winning solo show What They Said About Love (Best of the 2016 San Francisco Fringe), Steve Budd wonders why other people can and he can't–tie the knot, that is. So he asked a bunch of couples what brought them together and keeps them from pulling apart. Meet a New Age couple who swears they met BEFORE they met, a pair of Metal Heads who thought it would be a hoot to get married on 6-6-06, and more. Satisfy your curiosity about how others look for love and, in some cases, find it. Critics have called the show "A hilarious take on how people fall in love" (The East Bay Express).

Alice Bolin: Dead Girls - Strand Book Store
June 27, 2018 - Union Square

In this debut essay collection Alice Bolin addresses one of America's cultural obsessions: dead women in media. From the essays of Joan Didion and James Baldwin to Twin Peaks, Britney Spears, and Serial, Alice studies what it is about these stories that people enjoy. She expertly blends the personal and political, highlighting the widespread fixation with women who are abused, killed, and disenfranchised, and whose bodies are often reduced props to bolster men's stories. Smart and thoughtful, Alice's investigation searches for the meaning behind this cultural phenomena, and her own role as a consumer and creator. Alice's Dead Girls starts by exploring the trope of dead women in fiction, and ends by interrogating the more complex dilemma of living women – both the persistent injustices they suffer and the oppression that white women help perpetrate.

Little Guggs - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through June 27, 2018 - Upper East Side

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

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

Monophonics, El Imperio - Mercury Lounge
June 27, 2018 - New York

"One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!" – Al Bell (Record producer, songwriter, executive, and co-owner of legendary Stax Records) Raised amid the rich musical culture and history of the San Francisco Bay Area, Monophonics proudly carry the torch through the generations into today's musical landscape. Holding on to tradition, but by no means purists of any kind, they play their own brand of music known as "Psychedelic Soul." The 2012 release of Monophonics last album In Your Brain saw the band pulling influences from such acts as early Funkadelic, Sly and The Family Stone and the The Temptation's Norman Whitfield produced records. With the new album, Sound of Sinning (April 1, 2015 on Transistor Sound Records), the band has grown in all areas of record making and felt a need to explore other important influences. While the group has come to cherish these inspirations, With Sound of Sinning they started venturing beyond, to the groups that were inspiring those soul acts to embrace the psychedelic sound of the 60's and 70's. Bands such as The Zombies, The Beatles, Beach Boys and Pink Floyd. Even with the experimentation of new musical territory, they display the sound that people know and love about Monophonics. Touching on Northern soul, doo-wop, rock and roll, Psych pop, and cinematic music, Monophonics show off their diversity while remaining true to their roots. Overall it's heartfelt music and old school vibes, without losing sight of the present. This is is music steeped in that timeless feeling when people could write and produce songs that you could listen to over and over again. Sound of Sinning was produced by Kelly Finnigan & Ian McDonald and recorded on an old Tascam eight-track 1/4" tape machine at Transistor Sound Studios in San Rafael, CA. Monophonics is Austin Bohlman (Drums), Myles O'Mahony (Bass/Background Vocals), Ian McDonald (Guitar/Background Vocals), Ryan Scott (Trumpet/Background Vocals/Percussion) & Kelly Finnigan (Keys/Lead Vocals) along with a rotating 2nd horn usually filled by Nadav Nirenberg (Trombone) from Ikebe Shakedown and Breakdown Brass.

Roots Nyc | Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge & Special Guest Appearance - Cielo
June 27, 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.

Glassio, The Roofer's Union, Sedona - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
June 27, 2018 - Brooklyn

Glassio is an indie-pop outfit based in New York City, made up of Persian-Irish producer/songwriter Sam R. and French-American songwriter Charles Pinel. Their music fuses influences from pop, dance and new wave with the melodic sensibilities of 90s and 00's R&B. They first connected over a mutual love for the album Yellow House by Grizzly Bear, and decided to begin writing pop songs during a long weekend at Latitude Festival in the UK in 2012. After joining multiple dead-end bands in New York, Sam and Charles formed Glassio in 2015 -- basing the project around a music video concept of two astronauts taking the L train to the moon through the NYC subway system. The resulting single and music video, "Try Much Harder," was released in 2016 on their debut EP Poptimism, and climbed the Spotify Global Viral charts to #9 that Spring. Since their debut EP, the duo have performed electrifying live shows opening for Vallis Alps at Music Hall of Williamsburg, touring with Overcoats and headlining multiple New York City venues. Their single "Morning House" featuring alt-pop Brooklynite Charles Fauna scaled many popular playlists, breaking over 1M plays on Spotify in 2017 and their R&B-tinged single "Daydream" featuring NAKAYA went to No. 1 on Hype Machine at the end of 2017, as well as charting high on multiple iTunes charts around the world. In 2018, Glassio will release their 2nd EP "Age of Experience," featuring their springtime single "Back for More."

Through June 27, 2018 - New York

The Gerald Arpino Foundation announces Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami's performances of Light Rain part of The Joffrey/Arpino Celebration Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 7:30pm The Joyce Theater The Gerald Arpino Foundation announces Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami's performances of Gerald Arpino's Light Rain and Esferas, part of The Joffrey/Arpino Celebration, on Tuesday, June 26 and Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 7:30pm at The Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Avenue, NYC. Tickets start at $10. $10 tickets can be purchased by calling JoyceCharge at 212-242-0800. All other tickets can be purchased online at https://joyce.org/performances/dimensions-dance-theatre-miami. Following its "exuberant debut" (The Miami Herald) in 2016, Dimensions Dance Theatre has quickly made a name for itself as a promising new ballet company with a dazzling repertory reflective the vibrant Latin culture of its home city, Miami. Founded and led by former Miami City Ballet stars, Carlos Guerra and Jennifer Kronenberg, the company makes its Joyce debut with a program that includes Gerald Arpino's sensually charged Light Rain; Esferas, a striking, sculptural work created by emerging choreographic talent Ariel Rose of Miami City Ballet; and Jaunita y Alicia by Septime Webre. The Joyce's Ballet Festival is presented with generous support by John & Margaret Falk and Susan & Greg Pappajohn. Lead support provided by the Rudolf Nureyev Dance Foundation. Special support provided by First Republic Bank. Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami is a brand new ballet company founded in 2016 by former Miami City Ballet principal dancers Carlos Guerra and Jennifer Kronenberg. Carlos and Jennifer plan to offer audiences a fresh and diverse view of ballet through their direction of Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami, exploring collaborative avenues that are distinct in their reflection of South Florida. Drawing on 50+ years of cumulative experience working with many of today's most celebrated international choreographers and directors, the two will bring a unique & promising perspective to the procurement of new & existing balletic repertoire. At Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami, audiences can expect to see exciting, diverse, cutting edge works performed by world class artists who will keep viewers on the edge of their seats and demand to see more.   The mission of The Joyce Theater Foundation is to serve and support the art of dance and choreography, to promote the richness and variety of the art form in its fullest expression, and to advance the public interest in, and appreciation of, dance and the allied arts of music, design, and theater.   One of the only theaters built by dancers for dance, The Joyce Theater has garnered a well-deserved international reputation for cultivating and honoring emerging and established dance artists whose work represents a wide range of aesthetic interests.  Since opening in 1982, The Joyce has supported the dance community by providing a home for more than 400 domestic and international companies and by offering an annual 45 to 48-week season which, each year, allows more than 150,000 audience members to experience diverse, popular and challenging performances.   The Joyce's invaluable commitment to artists and audiences extends beyond the immense volume of work taking place on its stage. In an effort to make dance accessible to audiences throughout New York City, The Joyce has also expanded its reach beyond its Chelsea home through off-site presentations at venues ranging in scope from Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theater, to Brooklyn's Invisible Dog Art Center, and to outdoor programming in such spaces as Hudson River Park. The Joyce anticipates many more years of success in sustaining dance by building robust, educated audiences who share a love of the art form and embrace its enduring power. Robert Joffrey was born in Seattle, Washington, and met Gerald Arpino,a Staten Island native, while he was stationed in Seattle with the Coast Guard. They studied dance with Mary Ann Wells, danced with Graham dancers May O'Donnell and Gertrude Shurr, and studied at the School of American Ballet. Joffrey also performed as a soloist with Roland Petit's Ballet de Paris.   In 1953 Joffrey and Arpino founded the American Ballet Center (Joffrey Ballet School) in Greenwich Village. In 1956, their first company, the Robert Joffrey Theatre Dancers, began with six dancers (including Arpino) in a station wagon travelling across America, inaugurating their unique brand of American ballet. Soon the Joffrey Ballet, with its cutting-edge repertory and meticulously reconstructed historical ballets such as Kurt Jooss' The Green Table and Leonide Massine's Parade, became a world-renown company. While restaging important 20th century works by Frederick Ashton, John Cranko, and others, both Joffrey and Arpino were also acclaimed and sometimes controversial choreographers (for example, Joffrey's Astarte and Arpino's Trinity). Taking risks with new commissions, the Joffrey continued to break barriers between high and popular culture, performed at the White House for several Presidents, and toured the world.   In 1988, Joffrey passed away and Arpino became Artistic Director, moving the company from New York City to Chicago in 1995. After establishing the company in its new home, Arpino created The Gerald Arpino Foundation to preserve his and Robert Joffrey's ballets and legacy. Since Arpino's passing in 2008, the Joffrey has been under the able leadership of Ashley Wheater, continuing to flourish as a beloved Chicago institution. www.arpinofoundation.org   The Gerald Arpino Foundation is committed to preserving and promoting the choreographic works of Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey while maintaining the integrity of the works through the highest level of artistic excellence.   The Joyce Theater Foundation ("The Joyce," Executive Director, Linda Shelton), a nonprofit organization, has proudly served the dance community for over three decades. Under the direction of founders Cora Cahan and Eliot Feld, Ballet Tech Foundation acquired and The Joyce renovated the Elgin Theater in Chelsea. Opening as The Joyce Theater in 1982, it was named in honor of Joyce Mertz, beloved daughter of LuEsther T. Mertz. It was LuEsther's clear, undaunted vision and abundant generosity that made it imaginable and ultimately possible to build the theater. Ownership was secured by The Joyce in 2015. The theater is one of the only theaters built by dancers for dance and has provided an intimate and elegant home for over 400 U.S.-based and international companies. The Joyce has also presented dance at Lincoln Center since 2012, and launched Joyce Unleashed in 2014 to feature emerging and experimental artists. To further support the creation of new work, The Joyce maintains longstanding commissioning and residency programs. Local students and teachers (K-12th grade) benefit from its school program, and family and adult audiences get closer to dance with access to artists. The Joyce's annual season of about 48 weeks of dance now includes over 340 performances for audiences in excess of 150,000.

CEG Presents The Mallett Brothers Band with special guests Swerling - DROM
June 27, 2018 - New York

Maine's The Mallett Brothers Band is a nationally touring country rock and roll / Americana band. "The Falling of the Pine," their most recent release, celebrates Maine history by reimagining a collection of 19th century Maine folk songs. The Mallett Brothers Band's busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds. Texas Hill Country Explore Magazine calls them "New England's wildly eclectic crew of genre rebels." Bill Copeland Music News says "Combining their authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style that perceives stories on the level of epic myth, it's like William Faulkner has been resurrected with an electric guitar in hand.." While remaining fully independent, The Mallett Brothers Band has performed at some of the country's top venues and festivals, including Austin Texas's famed Continental Club; Alexandria, Virginia's Birchmere (sharing the stage with Oklahoma red-dirt rockers The Turnpike Troubadors), New Hampshire's Meadowbrook Pavilion (opening for The Allman Brothers Band, and again opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd); Nashville's Bluebird; and Little Rock's The Rev Room, to name a few. Festival appearances include FloydFest (Virginia), Hop Jam (Vermont), Nateva (Maine), The New England Country Music Festival (New Hampshire), Eastbound Throwdown (New York), and many more. "The Falling of the Pine," the band's most recent release, reimagines a group of 19th Century Maine folk songs collected in the 1927 book "Minstrelsy of Maine."

Escort - Rocks Off
June 27, 2018 - New York

During the early 2000s, guitarist/keyboardist Dan Balis and keyboardist Eugene Cho -- musicians who met while attending Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York -- produced and remixed house tracks for the Brique Rogue and Stay True labels. In June 2006, after opting to move closer to house music's disco roots, the two hatched Escort with "Starlight," a contemporary disco single that could have passed for a fresh take on a lost Skyy 12". Recorded with the assistance of several musicians, including vocalists Zena Kitt and Kemba Russell, the 12" release featured a dub mix from Metro Area's Darshan Jesrani. Three additional singles followed over the next 12 months: "Love in Indigo" (October 2006), "A Bright New Life" (February 2007), and "All Through the Night" (May 2007). Their fifth single didn't materialize until three years later, and by that time, Balis and Cho's performing lineup had changed and expanded to a total of 17 musicians, including horn and string sections. "Cocaine Blues" (October 2012), also featured a new lead vocalist, Adeline Michele, and it served as a teaser for the band's first album, issued in November 2011. A handful of singles were self-released during 2013, 2014, and 2015 and led to Animal Nature, another album that showed off Escort's remarkable knack for fusing and updating several strands of post-disco R&B.

Saboteur. 1942. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
June 27, 2018 - New York

1942. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. François Truffaut notes, "Since Saboteur is often confused with Sabotage, which was made in Britain six years earlier, let's point out that Saboteur was filmed in Hollywood and New York in 1942. A young worker in a munitions factory is wrongly accused of sabotage. The story, on the whole, is not too different from most of your manhunt yarns, so the best way to recall this one is to mention the finale on top of the Statue of Liberty." 109 min.

Craig Campbell - Opry City Stage
June 27, 2018 - New York

Craig Campbell has never taken a backseat to anything. He's certainly never taken a backseat in his career as one of Country's brightest rising stars who launched onto the Country music scene in 2011 and continues to exist in a perfect sweet spot between tradition and modernity. That doesn't mean the road to five consecutive charted hits and over a half million downloads has always been easy. There have been bumps along the way for the Georgia-born artist, on his path from the small town of Lyons to Nashville's Music Row. But through hits like "Keep Them Kisses Comin'," "Fish" and "Family Man," and countless shows, he's kept his eyes on his mission – to bring his fans true country music with a spin all his own, through timeless songs that tell his life story. And with his forthcoming debut project on RED BOW Records – flag-shipped by the earnest "Outskirts of Heaven," which was co-written by Campbell – he is ready to share the next chapter: where that timelessness meets the here and now.

ASG Lo-Pan Beitthemeans - Saint Vitus Bar
June 27, 2018 - Brooklyn

Formed in the North Carolina coastline community of Wrightsville Beach in 2001, the riff-fueled, distortion-driven rock of ASG that can be found on their latest effort has actually been at the band's core since its inception. Initially forming as a three-piece instrumental project, due to the lack of a dedicated vocalist, ASG were intensely focusing on devising tight, driving guitar riffs, locking guitarist Jason Shi in with the rhythm section of bassist Andy Ellis and drummer Scott Key. But as time passed and no vocalist was found, Shi was eventually forced to step up to the mic. With Shi becoming more comfortable as a frontman, the group found themselves connecting with Volcom Entertainment, who signed the band and put them in the studio in 2003, to record their debut album, ...The Amplification of Self Gratification. In 2005 ASG found themselves in a proper studio with proper producers, Matt Hyde and Phil Caivano, recording their sophomore album, Feeling Good Is Good Enough, an album that summoned all the band's potential and spawned a thunderous hard rock creation that equaled what the band had been working towards for the past 3 years. Shortly after completing Feeling Good Is Good Enough, second guitarist, Jonah Citty, was added to help recreate the album's sounds live, which was none too soon as the band quickly found themselves on the road with the likes of The Sword, Torche, Dwarves, and CKY.

Jonathan Van Ness - Carolines on Broadway
June 27, 2018 - New York

Television personality, Emmy nominee, and hairstylist to the stars, Jonathan Van Ness has quickly become known in the entertainment industry for his fabulous, unstoppable energy. It is his belief that great hair is best served with a side of witty banter. Jonathan can be seen starring on Netflix's "Queer Eye," which premiered in February 2018; the hit reboot of the Emmy Award winning series "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." The show, which is Netflix's first foray into non- scripted, follows the 'Fab Five' as they forge relationships with men and women from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from LGBTQ rights and social commentary to how to make the best farm-to-table guacamole. Jonathan shines as the show's groomer, hair guru and self-care advocate. "Queer Eye" was recently picked up for a Season 2. In addition to "Queer Eye" Jonathan stars on the Emmy-nominated series "Gay of Thrones," (Funny or Die) a witty social commentary series recapping HBO's "Game of Thrones." Launched in 2013, the series is now in its seventh season and garnered an Emmy nomination in 2016 for 'Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.' Jonathan also continues to work on a passion project, his podcast "Getting Curious," a biweekly exploration of all the things Jonathan is curious about from the history of the Armenian Genocide to the opiod crisis in the U.S. Born and raised in Quincy, Illinois (a small-town on the Mississippi River about four and a half hours southeast of Chicago). Jonathan is the sixth generation of a family rooted in the media business that owns and operates broadcast, digital and newspaper operations in 17 markets. Given his family history Jonathan spent his childhood in the newsroom, cultivating an organic love for social issues and current events. He went on to attend college at the University of Arizona, where he cheered competitively for a year then quickly realized he longed to follow his true passion; hairstyling and beauty.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah with Ensemble LPR (String Quartet) - (Le) Poisson Rouge
June 27, 2018 - New York

Like previous Clap Your Hands Say Yeah records, The Tourist nods to Ounsworth's musical heroes—a group that includes artists such as John Cale, Robert Wyatt, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. However, this album also shows a natural progression from previous records. "Better Off" and "The Vanity Of Trying" are lush, keyboard-augmented songs, while "A Chance To Cure" and "Ambulance Chaser" are rhythmically askew, and the sighing "Loose Ends" is delicate, acoustic-based folk-rock. The Tourist emerged from a period where Ounsworth was doing a lot of intense soul-searching, and processing personal events that irrevocably shaped his life and future. But although most of these songs came together during this time of reflection, he considers the record to be cathartic—an exhale of sorts, rather than a collection of songs where he was indulging in self-pity or letting things stagnate or fester. Appropriately, The Tourist's lyrics reflect how complex upheaval can be ("We can beat around this bush together/Sometimes it's all I think of/Other times I can forget") and explore the imperfect nature of blame ("The car left the road and was found without its mirrors/You play the victim/And I'll play the blind man"). Other songs try to make sense of the present time ("Now that the past is on fire/How can I look around and find I can't remember who I was") or employ clever wordplay— "Black cat let's not split hairs/I'm tethered to the weather/I assure I don't care about no lucky streak"—for effect.

Smugbug Productions announces Fükitt Clothing as Clothing Sponsor for The Eleventh Hour! - Town Stages
Through June 27, 2018 - New York

Smugbug Productions announces Fükitt Clothing as Clothing Sponsor for The Eleventh Hour! Smugbug Productions announces Fükitt Clothing as the clothing sponsor for the New York Premiere of The Eleventh Hour!, a new rock musical comedy by David Seamon running through June 27, 2018 at Town Stages, 221 West Broadway, NYC.  Tickets are $35 and are available at https://www.eleventhhourmusical.com/performance-tickets/the-eleventh-hour. Fükitt Clothing is always pleased to give back to those who genuinely love and support the brand, like Tam Justin Garcia, performer in Eleventh Hour!and Fükitt Clothing sponsored affiliate. He exemplifies Fükitt's brand by pursuing his dreams as a musician, and pushing himself further as a performer by taking part in this musical.    The producer of The Eleventh Hour, Christopher Pasi, has also gained a love for Fükitt Clothing and has agreed to incorporate our brand into the musical. Fükitt is excited to do something out of the ordinary and look forward to working with them. ABOUT FÜKITT CLOTHING Fükitt is an inspirational brand with the mission to inspire and motivate people to live life without regret and accept challenges that are worth the risk. Everyone knows the concept of living life to the fullest but the problem is that it is simply human nature to take things for granted, which is why most people complain continuously about Mondays, traffic, and weather.   People have argued that they can live life to the fullest every day but not only is that impossible, it is unhealthy. What do they do when they experience a tragic loss or disaster? The idea of living life to the fullest persuade us not to be bothered or influenced negatively by any situation, so we force ourselves into feeling happy, which often leads to abusing drugs and alcohol. Instead, we believe that we should embrace the pain to be able to appreciate the pleasure.   Most of us don't need to be convinced to think more positively, we just simply need a reminder.  For example, how do you feel when a friend or relative passes away?  We all get a sense of gratitude for our lives and often decide to live life a little bit better, only because we appreciate our lives more. But this feeling is temporary so we all find ourselves complaining about situations again...until the next reminder, such as having a friend get into an accident, or seeing someone else less fortunate than you.   Our goal is for our brand just to act as that reminder.  We're hoping that every time you wear our apparel and see our brand, you will be reminded to stop complaining about your life, to take life a little less for granted and to take more risks when it's worth it.   ABOUT THE ELEVENTH HOUR! It's the end of the world in New Jersey! A burnout basement rocker and his ex-girlfriend, a rising star astrophysicist, may have the key to surviving the black hole bearing down on earth.

Morgan Evans - Mercury Lounge
June 28, 2018 - New York

Morgan Evans began his professional career in his native Australia in 2012, releasing his eponymous debut album in 2014. His sleek country-pop found a wider audience in 2017, after he signed an international record deal that brought him his first American release in the form of the single "Kiss Somebody," and after he became known as the fiancee of country-pop star Kelsea Ballerini. Born in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia on April 24, 1985, Evans started playing music early on, inspired by the music of fellow Australian country star Keith Urban. He formed his first band when he was 13 years old, but he rose to prominence when he won the 2007 edition of the competition Telstra Road to Tamworth. Following his victory, he released his first single, "Big Skies," in September 2007. By 2012, he'd signed with the Australasia branch of Warner Music, releasing the EP Live Each Day in January of that year, quickly followed by While We're Young that August. Evans' profile continued to rise as he took supporting roles on notable tours, including Alan Jackson, and Taylor Swift's Australian tour supporting her album Red. Evans recorded his eponymous debut with producer Jedd Hughes in Nashville, Tennessee. Arriving in March 2014, Morgan Evans would top the Australian country charts and reach 20 on its pop albums chart, thanks to the singles "One Eye for an Eye" and "Like a Tornado." Evans' next move was the international market. The album also helped him garner a number of Country Music Channel Awards in 2014, including Oz Artist of the Year, and his burgeoning fame led to several television appearances, including host the 2016 CMC Music Awards with American country star Kelsea Ballerini; the pair subsequently became romantically involved. In 2015, he moved to Nashville and began working with producer Chris DeStefano on his first album designed for an international market. In July 2017, he released "Kiss Somebody," which was the first single from his first album released in either America or England.

Brooklyn Music School presents Survival Codes A New Play by Pianist/Composer Alon Nechushtan - Brooklyn Music School
June 28, 2018 - Brooklyn

Brooklyn Music School presents Survival Codes A New Play by Pianist/Composer Alon Nechushtan Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 8pm Brooklyn Music School (BMS) presents a new play by Pianist/Composer Alon Nechushtan, Survival Codes, on Thursday, June 28, 2018, at 8pm at The Playhouse Theatre at Brooklyn Music School, 126 Felix Street, Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are $20 ($10 for Students and Seniors), and are available at https://www.brooklynmusicschool.org/calendar/2018/4/19/survival-codes. Survival Codes is an expression of hope amidst decades of anti-Semitism and protest. "I wanted to tell a multilayered tale through musical quotation, allusion, counterpoint, pop culture, belting love songs and spiritual synagogue or anything holy and emotional." So says Alon Nechushtan about his debut theatrical work, an ambitious statement of artistry and social justice.   "On the other hand," he continues, "I wanted a calculated, cerebral, fragmented zig-zagged, fractured almost gleeful way to present life in the Soviet Union during the 1980s to an audience that might not be fully aware of what that life was like. Going for a story of espionage was a risky choice but I still feel confident that this was the way to tell it."   Nechushtan is quick to point out that Survival Codes is a work of fiction. But it's one that resonates with the past and is built from extensive background research and sourcing.   The play, which is directed by James Martinelli and co-produced by the Brooklyn Music School, is built around a story of the unrequited love (but with a hopeful ending!) between a pair of young musicians steeped in the Cold War climate of pre-Perestroika Soviet Union. Despite their differences regarding the time and place for political protest, their shared belief in the power of music remains strong and becomes a lifelong bond.   Embedded within the storyline is the historical atrocities committed against the Jewish people in Stalinist Russia, and, of course, the engrained memories of the Holocaust. Nechushtan draws parallels between the Kristallnacht (generally seen as the beginning of the systematic elimination of Jews in Germany) and the Soviet "night of the dead poets," in which Stalin erased any signs of resistance to his regime of horrors by eliminating all circles of artist, writers and intellectuals-many of them Jewish.   But also woven into the narrative are more contemporary references and events. Allusions to songwriters Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Billy Joel, to George H.W. Bush and the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, and to the lineage of political protest in the 20th Century inform the story. Kabala, Navajo and I-Ching systems of codification also informed Nechushtan's writing. Real-world struggles and real-world protest inform the lives depicted.   "I wanted my characters to live in a world where survival isn't granted," Nechushtan says. "In several actions or 'wrong moves' anyone could be removed from the board-just like in a real life prison or in a culture so deeply based on hierarchy, pen-pushers, compulsorily reading and the prohibition of individual religious or spiritual practice."    The project took shape during a 2018 Blueprint fellowship Nechustan was granted by the Council of Jewish Émigré Community Organizations.   "I started thinking about this during a retreat in the city of Ossining," Nechushtan says. "Ossining is known as the home of the Sing Sing Correctional Facility, one of the most famous prisons in New York State. My protagonists are based on the stories I heard and read there, in the experiences of important and exemplary dissidents such as Nathan Sharansky, Ida Nudel, Vladimir Slepak, and Andrei Sakharov. I heard so many inspirational stories first in person and later by posting questions and surveys on the social media."   His research also brought him to older Jewish poets and songwriters whose works show up in Survival Codes.   Primarily a pianist and composer, Nechushtan decided after much deliberation to tackle the script for Survival Codes himself. He wrote the book as well as the songs and incidental music, which will be played by a pit band and choir of Brooklyn Music School students and colleagues, with Nechustan conducting from the piano.   Alon Nechustan was born in Tel Aviv. His mother had emigrated from Uzbekistan where her family witnessed first-hand the horrors of Stalinism. His father, originally from Transylvania, was the child of Auschwitz survivors. Now a resident of New York City, Nechustan has performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz @ Lincoln Center, Central Park Summer Stage, The Blue Note Jazz Club and other esteemed stages across the city and around the world, including tours through China, Israel and the Phillipines. In October, 2015, the Kennedy Center comissioned Nechushtan to contribute a new piece for its Billy Strayhorn Centennial Celebration. In 2017, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C., commissioned Nechushtan for a program of Thelonious Monk's lesser known compositions.   Director James Martinelli is a recipient of the Yvonne Fanter Award, graduate of AMDA and standing member of The Lambs. Martinelli has worked with luminaries such as Liz Swados, June Lewis, Annette Hunt, Miriam Fond and Luigi. His one man show, Dancing with Mr Cassidy, has won accolades throughout the cabaret community. Martinelli is a certified Physical Therapy Aide with certifications in Dance, Fitness and Health and a graduate of Brooklyn College. Previous directorial work includes Broadway Bound, Miracle on 34th Street, The Gingerbread Lady and Jillian on Her 37th Birthday. He has choreographed throughout the country and continues to take dance class every day.   For more info: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/survival-codes-tickets-45347362181   Alon Nechushtan www.musicalon.com   The Brooklyn Music School views music and performance as the birthright of all people, an essential way that human beings connect with others and explore their creativity. The study of music has been demonstrated to enhance academic learning and helps to develop discipline and confidence that will serve children well throughout their lives.As part of the vision of reinventing the community music school for the 21st Century, BMS is dedicated to: * Making high quality musical instruction approachable and affordable to a wide range of students, * Creating frequent opportunities for performance for our students and cultural enrichment for our community, * Representing a wide range of musical traditions, including European, African, Middle Eastern, and American to represent the diversity of Brooklyn's musical talent, and * Offering a warm and welcoming space for families and individuals to explore new talents and make lasting friendships.   For more information, visit www.brooklynmusicschool.org.

Eric Bellinger - Highline Ballroom
June 28, 2018 - New York

Considering his roots and upbringing, it is no wonder that Eric Bellinger has become an R&B sensation. An LA native and grandson of Jackson 5 hit songwriter, Bobby Day, Bellinger has been engulfed with music his entire life. His love for music drove his decision to turn down a football scholarship at USC to pursue his real passion. Bellinger began his musical journey recording and touring with the R&B group, AKNU (A Kind Never Understood) and soon signed to Epic Records by legendary executives, Max Gousse and Tommy Motola. His natural talent for songwriting became apparent and he returned home to hone his abilities under the guidance of his childhood friend and mentor, Erika Nuri of "The Writing Camp." After signing a publishing deal with Sony ATV, Bellinger hit the ground sprinting with stellar contributions to major R&B and pop artists such as Chris Brown ("Fine China," "Love More" featuring Nicki Minaj), Usher ("Let Me See" featuring Rick Ross), Selena Gomez ("Intuition") and Justin Bieber ("Right Here" featuring Drake) to name a few. Though many would expect that the success of Bellinger's project would be his inspiration to keep going, it is actually not the main reason. His fans and family are. Through all his growth, Bellinger's family has had his back and his fans have been by his side through every step of his journey. A journey that has inspired so many others. With an independency that some may struggle to obtain, Bellinger is successfully breaking the ceiling. And that type of dedication, talent and determination can't be taught. He just got it. Bellinger is set to release his upcoming album titled Eazy Call at the top of the year. Eazy Call has several new surprises for his Eazy fanbase and is guaranteed to excite the market! Eric is also conducting a Malibu Nights tour, focusing on pushing his "Eric B. for President" 4 part series. It includes 2 eight track EP's, Term 1 & Term 2 (available in acoustic versions). Make sure to grab your tickets for Bellinger's show coming to a city near you! And while you're at it, make sure you grab some Malibu Nights merch so you can rock to Eric's next show!

We exhibit a new DUMBO-based artist every Thursday, and invite the public to engage through a live art component, where the artist and public create a collaborative piece together over the course of three hours.

Lowdown Brass Band - DROM
June 28, 2018 - New York

LowDown Brass Band (LDB) deftly synthesizes the gritty sounds of Chicago with the high energy second-line street beat of the Crescent City. LDB brandishes a powerful brass frontline of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, with a funky backline of drums and sousaphone. Combining the poetic ferocity of Billa Camp with stellar vocal harmonies, adventurous improvisation, movement, and grooves, LDB creates an infectious and diverse sound that has something for every listener. Fresh off their appearance at The 2017 Chicago Jazz Festival, LowDown maintains a constant performing and touring schedule throughout North America. In 2015, LDB released an ambitious project titled "LowDown Sounds" that included a critically acclaimed cameo by Roy Ayers on the track "Everybody Loves The Sunshine." LowDown Brass is now set to begin the next chapter with the release of their 5th self-produced full length studio album "LowDown Breaks." This new offering steps deeper into refining their unique sound, combining the hip hop sound with multiple world music and jazz styles. "LowDown Breaks" sounds as if it could be comprised of samples – as if every instrument came off an old soul record - the drum "break" from a JB's record, or a horn blast ripped from an Al Green cut - and that was the idea from the beginning. But there are no samples on this record except in the transitions: DJ Alo (The Dread/Chicago) and Laelo (Sousa/Producer) sampled the LDB horns and drums, cut up them up, replaced, remixed, and create"LowDown Breaks." This concept is a nod to the breaks used by the original DJs and producers from the Golden Age of Hip Hop and gives the album a sound akin to "The Apache" or "Funky Drummer" while always sounding new and fresh. "Lowdown Breaks" includes several marquee collaborations with stellar artists including: Chicago rapper Ang13 on "Cold Shoulder," Fada Dougou on "Don't Wait! Right Now!," DJ ALO and The Dread on "Ghost Town" and "Can I Kick It", as well as a remix for the video for "Can I Kick It" by Nick The Graduate (Illuminati Congo/Chicago). The album was tracked in Chicago at The Drake by Anthony Gravino (Davy Knowles/Marquis Hill) and mixed by legendary hip hop engineers/ producers Alex Gross and Dan Zorn at Studio 11. As track #1 iterates – LowDown breaks tradition, breaks expectations, and makes a break for your ears.

Yo La Tengo - Rocks Off
June 28, 2018 - New York

YO LA TENGO ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM THERE'S A RIOT GOING ON FIRST PROPER FULL-LENGTH SINCE 2013 OUT MARCH 16 ON MATADOR RECORDS FOUR NEW SONGS OUT NOW – "YOU ARE HERE," "SHADES OF BLUE," "SHE MAY, SHE MIGHT," AND "OUT OF THE POOL" Yo La Tengo's new album There's a Riot Going On will be released on March 16th on Matador Records and can be pre-ordered HERE. This is a warm, ambitious record, a striking self-produced creation from one of the most celebrated and adventurous bands in rock history, whose dynamic range touches on pure noise and serene beauty and everything in between. To showcase the full depth of this fearless fifteen-track album, Yo La Tengo have released four new songs today ("You Are Here," "Shades of Blue," "She May, She Might," and "Out of the Pool"), which can be heard HERE. "Following their sold-out eight night run of Hanukkah shows in NYC this past December, Yo La Tengo commence their world tour on March 28th in Minneapolis, hitting major Midwest, East Coast, and West Coast markets. ### There's a riot going on. You don't need me, or Yo La Tengo, to tell you that. These are dark times, in our heads as much as in the streets. It's easy to lose contact with the ground, flying through endless banks of storm clouds day after day. Confusion and anxiety intrude into daily life and cause you to lose your compass. There are times that call for anthems, something to lift you out of your slump and put fire in your feet. And then there are times when what is indicated is a balm, a sound that will wrap around you and work out the knots in your neck. While there's a riot going on, Yo La Tengo will remind you what it's like to dream. The sound burbles and washes and flows and billows. If records were dedicated to the cardinal elements, this one would be water. There are shimmery hazes, spectral rumbles, a flash of backward masking, ghostly flamingos calling "shoo-bop shoo-bop." You are there. And even if your mind is not unclouded–shaken, misdirected, out of words and out of time–you can still float, ride the waves of an ocean deeper than your worries, above the sound and above the Sound. For Yo La Tengo this is a slow-motion action painting, and Georgia Hubley, Ira Kaplan and James McNew did it all themselves, in their rehearsal studio, with no outside engineer (John McEntire later did the mix). They did not rehearse or jam together beforehand; they turned on the recorder and let things coalesce. Songs came together over long stretches, sometimes as much as a year going by between parts. You'd never guess this, since the layers are finessed with such a liquid brush. You'd imagine most of the songs had sprung forth whole, since they will enter your head that way. Within two listens you will be powerless to resist the magnetic draw of "Shades of Blue," will involuntarily hear "She May, She Might" on your internal jukebox first thing in the morning and "Let's Do It Wrong" late at night. While there's a riot going on you will feel capable of bobbing through like a cork. In 1971, when the nation appeared to be on the brink of violently coming apart, Sly and the Family Stone released There's a Riot Goin' On, an album of dark, brooding energy. Now, under similar circumstances, Yo La Tengo have issued a record with the same name but with a different force, an album that proposes an alternative to anger and despair.

1946. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Cary Grant recruits a reluctant Ingrid Bergman to infiltrate a Nazi spy ring.

To Catch a Thief. 1955. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
June 28, 2018 - New York

1955. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Grace Kelly falls under the spell of a suave jewel thief (Cary Grant) on the prowl in the South of France. When Truffaut notes that To Catch a Thief was the first picture Hitchcock shot on location in France, he asked what the Englishman thought of the film as a whole. Hitchcock replied, "It was a lightweight story…. It wasn't mean to be taken seriously. The only interesting footnote I can add is that since I hate royal-blue skies, I tried to get rid of the Technicolor blue for the night scenes. So we shot with a green filter to get the dark slate blue, the real color of night, but it still didn't come out as I wanted it." 106 min.

Lovelorn Russian Baths Kindling Control Top - Saint Vitus Bar
June 28, 2018 - Brooklyn

Lovelorn is a band from Philadelphia, featuring 3 of the 4 original members of Creepoid. "sleepy and atmospheric with hazy, distorted guitar, steady drums and bass, and far away, airy vocals. The lyrics are interesting and imaginative with lines like "So take me away to my next big mistake / down through the gutter and out the gate." - Madorne Lemaine 88.5 WXPN Psychedelic shoegaze indie rockers from Easthampton, having blossomed from their modest indiepop beginnings, KINDLING as a full band embodies equal parts delicate beauty and crushing heaviness, awash in a sea of fuzz, reverb, and volume. "There's nothing soothing about the music of the Massachusetts shoegaze band Kindling. Kindling don't use their waves of guitar effects to beautify their songs; instead, they drag them through mud. There's a lot of fuzz on this band's guitars, and it's always punishing, never uplifting. Still, Kindling bring some seriously pretty melodies and vocal harmonies in with all that ugliness." —STEREOGUM

Our comedians perform nationwide at clubs and colleges. This is the hottest show in NYC! Don't miss out on the fun. Rashad Bashir Rashad Bashir was born on April 17, 1988 in the Bronx. As a kid growing up, he had no filter and was easy to prank, which made him the butt of every joke in school. Rashad knew the only way to gain popularity and respect was to be the funny guy. At age 15, he did his first stand-up routine at his High School Valentines Day Talent Show. All of his material was observational, impulsive, and the blueprint for his current style. Rashad has a high energy, crowd engaging style of comedy. His balance of crowd work, act outs, improv skills, and relatable written material, make for a great performance by the young comedian. His comedy influences include (in no particular order) Tony Roberts, Mike Epps, Martin Lawrence, Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle, Katt Williams, D.L. Hughley, Bernie Mac, Chris Tucker, Arnez J, and Chris Rock. Rashad has been featured on Wendy Williams on Fox, BET Top Five, BRIC TV, and MNN. He is also in the upcoming film "And There Were Four".

Rich Aucoin, Ellevator, Terror Pigeon , Cutters - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
June 29, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ellevator is an experimental-pop band from Hamilton, Ontario. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche's nimble, raw lyricism is illuminated by a voice like holy fire: blistering and purifying. Focussed guitar work dances with the hypnotic timbres and soaring melodies of analog synthesizers. Deft lines and dangerous grooves are intoned by a disciplined drum & bass combo. Chaos lurks beneath the surface of Ellevator's tight motifs and rhythmic trances, erupting into moments of prophetic ecstasy. Their live performances are wild affairs. Brimstone at their heels, Ellevator's contagious energy turns rooms into reveries.

Michaela McClain - Club Groove
June 29, 2018 - New York

Michaela McClain grew up the youngest of 6 girls, and according to her mother, "she was singing before she was talking". When her father played guitar, Michaela and her sisters all crowded around the piano and sang in harmony like a real life Von Trap family. "When we were growing up, our house was always buzzing with music and people. I was lucky enough to be introduced to some great music as a child…everything from Carlos Jobim, to Ella Fitzgerald, to the Indigo Girls. Bossa nova, soulful jazz and rich harmonies influenced my musical taste early on." As an adolescent, Michaela sang in choirs, cantered in church, and sang at weddings and funerals. She wrote her first song on guitar when she was 14 years old, and throughout her teenage and college years, songwriting served Michaela by giving her an outlet and opportunity to express her heart, grapple with feelings and connect to those around her.

RotFront - DROM
June 29, 2018 - New York

RotFront will drag you up onto your feet with their sweat-inducing mix of ukrainian reggae, hungarian garage-rock, ska, klezmer and hip-hop. Forget pseudo-world music and pay respect to this band's multi-national Emigrantski Raggamuffin! RotFront is the brainchild of Yuriy Gurzhy, an expat Ukrainian musician, well known as one half of the legendary Berlin-based Russendisko DJ collective, and his Hungarian fellow Simon Wahorn, a musician and DJ-originator of the Hungaro Groovers Soundsystem. The band has been active since 2003 in various line-ups, staying faithful to their unique blend of eclectic styles, most notably reggae, klezmer, hiphop, cumbia and punk. Their turbo-driven "emigrantski raggamuffin" music, as they themselves call it, deals with everyday life in Berlin and adventures of an immigrant in a big city. RotFront is best known for the energetic live performances notorious for the disappearance of the border between the stage and the dance floor after the first songs, when both the band and the crowd unite in a convoluted wild dance, while it is raining sweat and liquor. The band is offering the exquisite musical references adopted from the different eras and places presenting a particularly powerful compound that seems to penetrate the deepest crevices of the music loving souls. The effects of this chemical reaction are strikingly satisfying to the participants of the rite as well as to the observers that are quickly becoming involved despite not realizing that

Steve Miller Band with Peter Frampton - Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
June 29, 2018 - Bethel

Coming off an extraordinary 2017, Rock n' Roll Hall of Famer Steve Miller is looking forward to his summer 2018 tour. Joining Miller and his band on this tour once again will be special guest Peter Frampton. "2017 was an amazingly beautiful, creative and rewarding music experience for our band and our audience," says Miller. "The band and production crew are working on creating an even better concert experience for 2018 and plan on wading even deeper into the musical waters. Peter Frampton and I enjoyed last summer. There is so much to explore and we are really looking forward.” Frampton adds, "Having had such a fantastic tour together last summer, Steve and I decided to keep going this year! Jamming together each night during Steve's set is one of my favorite moments of the evening. Can't wait to get back out there." Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music-­?and society-­?could be in the years to come. Then, in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock 'n' roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in an endless flow: "The Joker," "Livin' in the USA," "Take the Money and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love," and "Abracadabra" among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio ­?and impossible not to sing along with.

Sheck Wes + Valee 'Mosh Tour' - Irving Plaza
June 29, 2018 - New york

In an era when aspiring public figures broadcast constantly in an effort to maximize their brand value, Valee's coolly laconic stands apart. With short songs and a soft-spoken style, his unpredictable raps sketch subjects with a droll eye for detail over a bass-heavy canvas. This is trap music for the connoisseur, for fans of clever lyrics and effortless style. Valee grew up on Chicago's South Side. When he received toys as a child, he would break them apart to figure out how they worked, a method he applies to his own process with music today: "Sometimes I rap and cut and copy and paste and move parts around and it changes the whole song, for the better." His music career began when, intent on buying a gaming system, he stopped at Guitar Center instead. "I just wanted to make beats better than what I hear on my mixtapes or on the radio, and I wanted to rap on it. I wasn't thinking about anyone else at all." His counterintuitive approach across five mixtapes and his GOOD Music debut EP, GOOD job, you found me, has captured the ears of artists and music aficionados alike, drawn to his unorthodox approach.

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

Dan Baird & Homemade Sin - Hill Country
June 29, 2018 - NY

Runka, runka, three chords and a cloud of dust! Dan Baird returns! The Georgia Satellites were one of the most ferocious bands of the 80's and what set them apart from the other 10,000 groups who cranked their amps up to 11 was that their wild riffs and tanked cries came from a band that, from the start, understood it's place in rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording. The story starts in the early 80's at Hedgen's, a "country club for the spiritually impoverished and emotionally destitute" , as chief songwriter Baird would later identify it. Bassist Keith Christopher, Drummer Mauro Magellan and Guitarists Rick Richards and Dan Baird were playing on the Atlanta circuit in various bar bands such as the Hellhounds, the Brains and the Woodpeckers. These bands would gradually morph into the original Georgia Satellites. #1 fan and road manager Kevin Jennings, sold an EP of early Satellites recordings to an independent UK record label, Making Waves and the EP, Keep The Faith, provoked an extraordinary reaction from the UK music press, which, in turn, woke up the previously indifferent stateside music industry. The stand-out track on the EP and most peoples introduction to the band was Keep Your Hands To Yourself which was swiftly culled from the bands eponymous debut major label release on Elektra and became a runaway grammy nominated hit, both LP and single only being kept off the respective #1 slot's by Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and Living On A Prayer. A second hit single, Battleship Chains, solidified the LP's platinum success. Where the Satellites really earned their reputation though, was with their live shows. All those years of three sets a night, paid dividends as their live performances laid waste to audiences across the States and in particular Europe, which took the band to it's collective heart, a love affair that continues to this day. Two more Elektra LP's, Open All Night and the remarkable Salvation And Sin, plus a track, Hippy Hippy Shake, on the Tom Cruise movie soundtrack, Cocktail, followed, but by the early 90's, all those years of incessant touring had taken their toll and the band split. Dan Baird forged a successful solo career with Rick Rubin's Def American, scoring major hits with the album Love Songs For The Hearing Impaired and single I Love You Period. A second LP, the critically acclaimed Buffalo Nickel, followed and Dan also developed a career as a highly sought after producer. Post Satellites Mauro played on both of Dan's Def American albums before taking time out to raise a family and concentrate on his other interests. Keith had also returned to the fold for the Def American recordings and like Mauro played on both 'Love Songs For The Hearing Impaired' and 'Buffalo Nickel'. After recording 'Buffalo Nickel', Keith went on to join Kenny Wayne Sheppard's band and play on a multitude of sessions, including Ayo's 2006 double platinum debut Joyful. In 2001 Dan returned to live performance, with the Sofa Kings, a band that featured hot shot guitarist Ken McMahan. The shows producing the live album, Redneck Savant. Dan also found time to record and tour as part of the alt "supergroup", The Yayhoos who also featured Keith Christopher and long time Dan sparring partner Terry Anderson. The Yayhoos line up is completed by Eric "Roscoe" Ambel. The foursome have released two albums to date, Fear Not The Obvious in 2002, following it in 2007 with Put The Hammer Down. 2003 saw the release of a compilation of Dan and Georgia Satellites unreleased gems - Out Of Mothballs - and Mauro put out an album with his other band The Crashers - Love School. Dan, Keith, Mauro and Ken hit the road for the first of a sucession of tours which were documented on the 2005 double live set - Feels So Good. In 2007 the band decided to take some time off to concentrate on writing and to recharge their batteries. During this period, Ken had his first child and decided to spend some time at home. His legacy and importance to the band are stamped all over the live cd and dvd set - Fresh Out Of Georgia - which will stand as a worthy testament to his time with the band. His replacement is none other than Warner E. Hodges, also guitarist extraordinaire with Nashville legends, Jason And The Scorchers. Warner is probably the only guitarist capable of matching Dan's intensity chord for chord and proved to be the missing piece in the Homemade Sin jigsaw. Long term friends, Dan had co-produced Warner's 2007 debut solo album - Centerline. February 2008, Dan, Warner, Mauro and Keith embarked upon the recording of Homemade Sin's debut studio album. Recorded in Nashville the fourteen tracks on 'Dan Baird & Homemade Sin' represent the first new Dan Baird studio album since 'Buffalo Nickel'. The album was released in Europe in May 2008 to rave reviews and was playlisted by BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris, an American release scheduled for 2009. Live audiences got to hear the new songs for the first time when Homemade Sin, joined the Quireboys on a highly successful package tour of the U.K. and Scandinavia. The band were back in Scandinavia once again in October with one veteran (and by all accounts highly jaded) music journalist giving the band a SIX out of FIVE star review and proclaiming the show to be the best gig he'd seen in over twenty years!

Selling out shows to standing room only crowds, fans have seen Rumours at venues including The Fillmore in Charlotte, NC, Daryl's House in Pawling, NY owned by music icon Daryl Hall, a weeklong residency at Epcot Center in Disney World, the 310 Room Austin City Limits and multiple Live Nation venues. Rumours have quickly become one of the most sought after and highly regarded tribute bands in the genre.

By The Grace Of God Search Old Ghosts The Path - Saint Vitus Bar
June 29, 2018 - Brooklyn

By the Grace of God was easily the most sincere, radical, and politically outspoken band of the straight-edge and hardcore revival scenes of the mid-'90s. Which are two scenes that the band would eventually distance itself from as they became increasingly political and more highly critical of the hardcore scene's turn toward "mainstream" thinking and mass marketing. By the Grace of God began as little more than an excuse for vocalist Rob Pennington and guitarist Duncan Barlow to play uplifting, politically charged, high-energy hardcore together again. The two had cut their teeth fronting the phenomenally emotional Louisville hardcore band Endpoint and had since drifted off into various post-hardcore, metal, and indie-oriented projects -- most notably Barlow with Guilt. By the Grace of God started out playing small shows, quickly amassing a following with their outspoken and passionate performances. The duo had assembled a veritable who's who of the local scene that included Thommy Browne (Enkindels) on drums, Jay Palumbo (Empathy/Elliott) on guitar, and Benny (Elliott) on bass, all of whom would join in the sloganeering as By the Grace of God shouted their anti-corporate local-business-supporting message at audiences between songs. The five of them quickly inked a deal with Chicago's Victory label, issuing the For the Love of Indie Rock EP shortly thereafter. The title of the record was a playful jab at some former friends of the band. The "friends" in question were members of an Indianapolis band called Split Lip, who had seemingly abandoned their own hardcore roots. Hardcore roots that By the Grace of God was wearing on their sleeves. Split Lip began to favor a more indie approach after the release of their For the Love of the Wounded LP on Endpoint's former label, Doghouse. By the Grace of God's first record included a cover of a Poison Idea song, in addition to the band's own sing-along ready anthems in waiting. Their next release was the much more polished Perspective LP, produced by Steve Evetts in his New Jersey studios. After playing a large handful of regional shows, Palumbo and Benny left the band to focus full-time on Elliott. They were replaced by bassist Brian Roundtree and guitarist Robby Scott. The band then embarked upon a national tour supporting Avail, AFI, and Good Riddance before Barlow's increasing dissatisfaction with small but violent right-wing factions within the national hardcore community caused him to announce his "retiring" from the scene altogether, effectively ending By the Grace of God for a time.

Ólafur Arnalds: All Strings Attached - Le Poisson Rouge
June 30, 2018 - West Village

BAFTA Award winning artist, composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds proudly announces more dates of his his 2018 /2019 world tour: Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians are back in the lab, working on the "ALL STRINGS ATTACHED." tour, which will feature past, present and brand new material from his forthcoming album. The idea for "ALL STRINGS ATTACHED." was born out of our forgotten, yet inherent interconnectedness; the unity of all things and the interdependent nature of us humans. The tour, featuring Ólafur and a uniquely wired ensemble of a string-quintet, drums, 2 Disclaviers and other artists and technological elements to be announced, seeks to act as a mirror for a society which celebrates the fleeting and ephemeral, while shunning the enduring and avoiding true connections. It is an invitation to commit – to oneself, to each other, and to the moment, as the Zeitgeist notion of "no strings attached…" gives way to the spirit of "ALL STRINGS ATTACHED."

About Last Night - Cielo
June 30, 2018 - New York

Forever In Your Mind, Dana Vaughns - Mercury Lounge
June 30, 2018 - New York

American pop band Forever in Your Mind formed in 2013 on the third season of The X Factor. Original members Ricardo "Ricky" René Garcia, Jr. and Jonathan "Jon" Daniel Klaasen auditioned for the singing contest as part of a group, CO-ED, while Emery Thomas Kelly entered into solo competition. Judge Simon Cowell merged the three boys as a trio and dubbed them Forever in Your Mind. Although they did not proceed to the live shows, they continued as a group, releasing first single "She Lights the World" and the Christmas song "This Feels Just Like Christmas." In June 2014, Klaasen parted ways with FIYM to pursue a solo career. Kelly's cousin Liam Thomas Attridge was initially recruited as a temporary replacement for a planned DigiFest concert, but ended up rounding out the trio as a permanent member. Although their debut album had already been finished with Klaasen, they decided to re-record the material with Attridge. After the release of another holiday tune, FIYM released "Sweet Little Something," which was a hit on Radio Disney. This resulted in a partnership with Disney, with FIYM recording "Whenever," the theme to the Disney Channel's Best Friends Whenever, which also starred Garcia and Kelly. In 2016, Forever in Your Mind issued the single "Hurricane," which was included on their debut EP, FIYM, released that summer. The next year, the trio released the singles "Smooth" b/w "Missing" and "Rabbit Hole."

Super Doppler, Dr Danny - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
June 30, 2018 - Brooklyn

Six months after the release of Super Doppler's debut, Matthew E. White produced album 'Moonlight Anthems' (June 2017 release) the band is back at it again with the announcement of their "Super Secret Singles Club", a monthly digital singles club that will span from February through July 2018. Bridging melodic psychedelic pop with country-funk grooves, twangy dueling guitars, and a proclivity for layered vocal harmonies, Super Doppler has come to embrace a spirited, genre-agnostic ethos. The "Super Secret Singles Club" releases are no exception, continuing to defy the stifling label of a traditional "genre" while exploring the depths of what is considered rock n roll. All born and raised in Norfolk, VA, Super Doppler began their journey as a loose collective of high school friends with a common interest in late nights and loud music. Desperate to escape the impending reality of the 9 to 5 workday, the group decided to hit the open road and play for anyone willing to listen. No matter how dark the basement or lonely the bar, it was here in the farthest fringes of the music industry that these ragtag renegades would make their stand. 4 years and 500+ shows later after forming, the band released 'Moonlight Anthems', their debut record under the "Super Doppler" moniker. Produced by fellow Virginia wunderkind Matthew E. White of Spacebomb Records, 'Moonlight Anthems' showcases the shared retro influences of the six-piece band; more specifically, a group of high school friends turned bandmates that includes two sets of brothers, Michael and Bryan Adkins (guitar and drums, respectively), and fraternal twins, Neal and Cole Friedman (keyboards and bass, respectively), alongside long-time comrades Harry Slater (guitar) and Tyler West (percussion). With six new singles set for release over the first half of 2018 and a full length record that is less than a year old, Super Doppler wants you to know they are here to stay. With stops at SXSW in Austin, TX in March and Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham, AL already announced, the band has plans to stay busy on the road throughout the year. After an extensive U.S. album release tour in 2017, expect to see Super Doppler spanning the continental United States again in 2018.

Adrian Cunningham Quintet with special guest vocalist Brianna Thomas - Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
Through June 30, 2018 - New York

With music director, clarinetist, and saxophonist Adrian Cunningham; and vocalist Brianna Thomas. With support from the Loewe Foundation, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola celebrates the great Lerner and Loewe musicals by revisiting Loewe's timeless compositions in a swinging jazz context. This program will continue the popular and fruitful relationship between musical theater and jazz—a relationship in which Lerner and Loewe played an essential role. In 1956, Shelly Manne's My Fair Lady became the first jazz album ever to consist entirely of songs from a single Broadway musical, and before long other jazz artists like Quincy Jones, Nat "King" Cole, Oscar Peterson, and Dick Hyman released their own takes on the Lerner and Loewe classic. There's plenty of potential left in this material for fresh interpretation and inspiration, and fans of the golden age of Broadway and Hollywood musicals will not want to miss this event. An evening celebrating the great musicals of Lerner & Loewe, including My Fair Lady, Brigadoon and Camelot. Supported by The Frederick Loewe Foundation.

Béla Fleck and the Flecktones - The Capitol Theatre
June 30, 2018 - Port Chester

Groundbreaking banjoist/composer/bandleader Béla Fleck has reconvened the original 'Béla Fleck & The Flecktones', the extraordinary initial line-up of his incredible combo. Rocket Science marks the first recording by the first fab four Flecktones in almost two decades, with pianist/harmonica player Howard Levy back in the fold alongside Fleck, bassist Victor Wooten, and percussionist/ Drumitarist Roy "Futureman" Wooten. Far from being a wistful trip back in time, the album sees the Grammy Award-winning quartet creating some of the most forward thinking music of their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play – from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances – the result is an impossible to pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable. Simply put, it is The Flecktones, the music made only when these four individuals come together. "All the different things I do come together to make a new 'hybrid' Béla'," Fleck says. "Everybody else in the group is doing the same things, collaborating with different people, and pursuing a wide variety of ideas, so when we come together and put all of our separate soups into one big stockpot it turns into a very diverse concoction." Fleck first united the Flecktones in 1988, ostensibly for a single performance on PBS' Lonesome Pine Special. From the start, there was a special kinship between the four musicians, a bond forged in a mutual passion for creativity and artistic advancement. Three breakthrough albums and a whole lot of live dates followed before Levy decided to move on in late 1992.

In the 2017-18 school year, thirteen teaching artists facilitated sixteen residencies in eleven New York City public schools, working closely with classroom teachers to develop projects that promote visual literacy while exploring and making connections with ideas and themes related to the school’s curriculum.

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

Old 97's - Tarrytown Music Hall
June 30, 2018 - Tarrytown

One of the pioneers of the alt-country movement, Old 97's tour behind their newest release Graveyard Whistling, a release filled with raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit. In 1996, Old 97's recorded Too Far to Care. It was their major-label debut—following two independent releases and a year-long bidding war, the Dallas-based quartet had signed with Elektra Records. But rather than venture into some state-of-the-art studio in New York or LA, the band decamped to Village Productions in Tornillo, Texas, a remote facility in the middle of two thousand acres of pecan trees near the Mexican border, with a mixing board acquired from an engineer who had worked on some of Queen's albums. Now over twenty years later, they have returned to record their eleventh studio album, Graveyard Whistling. "[Too Far To Care] is the sound that best defined us," says Rhett Miller, the lead singer and primary songwriter. "It was a really magical time, and we go back to it a lot in our collective memory." And so when it came time for the band—which still consists of the same four members: Miller, guitarist Ken Bethea, bassist Murry Hammond, and drummer Philip Peeples—to record their newest endeavor, producer Vance Powell brought up the idea of returning to Tornillo. "We knew instantly that it was the perfect move," says Miller. "We weren't trying to remake Too Far to Care, but to make something where fans would say, 'This band hasn't lost a step in twenty-some years.'" The result is the eleven songs of Graveyard Whistling.

Alongside marine biologist Holly Lohuis, Cousteau invites viewers to dive into this whole new world that will leave them in awe of the beauty and diversity of the oceans and inspire an even stronger desire to protect what they have either seen for the first time or perhaps re-discovered along the journey. Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Secret Ocean 3D introduces audiences to over 30 species, illuminating behaviors captured for the first time thanks to the development of new tools that allow underwater filming in 3D, ultra- HD 5K, slow motion, macro, and with motion control, and takes them to remarkable and vibrant environments such as the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini.

Super Doppler, Field Trip, Dr Danny - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
June 30, 2018 - New York

Six months after the release of Super Doppler's debut, Matthew E. White produced album 'Moonlight Anthems' (June 2017 release) the band is back at it again with the announcement of their "Super Secret Singles Club", a monthly digital singles club that will span from February through July 2018. Bridging melodic psychedelic pop with country-funk grooves, twangy dueling guitars, and a proclivity for layered vocal harmonies, Super Doppler has come to embrace a spirited, genre-agnostic ethos. The "Super Secret Singles Club" releases are no exception, continuing to defy the stifling label of a traditional "genre" while exploring the depths of what is considered rock n roll. All born and raised in Norfolk, VA, Super Doppler began their journey as a loose collective of high school friends with a common interest in late nights and loud music. Desperate to escape the impending reality of the 9 to 5 workday, the group decided to hit the open road and play for anyone willing to listen. No matter how dark the basement or lonely the bar, it was here in the farthest fringes of the music industry that these ragtag renegades would make their stand. 4 years and 500+ shows later after forming, the band released 'Moonlight Anthems', their debut record under the "Super Doppler" moniker. Produced by fellow Virginia wunderkind Matthew E. White of Spacebomb Records, 'Moonlight Anthems' showcases the shared retro influences of the six-piece band; more specifically, a group of high school friends turned bandmates that includes two sets of brothers, Michael and Bryan Adkins (guitar and drums, respectively), and fraternal twins, Neal and Cole Friedman (keyboards and bass, respectively), alongside long-time comrades Harry Slater (guitar) and Tyler West (percussion). With six new singles set for release over the first half of 2018 and a full length record that is less than a year old, Super Doppler wants you to know they are here to stay. With stops at SXSW in Austin, TX in March and Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham, AL already announced, the band has plans to stay busy on the road throughout the year. After an extensive U.S. album release tour in 2017, expect to see Super Doppler spanning the continental United States again in 2018.

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

Selwyn Birchwood - The Art Garage
June 30, 2018 - Cooperstown

With his fiery guitar and lap steel playing, his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs and gritty, unvarnished vocals, Selwyn Birchwood is among the most extraordinary young stars in the blues. The Wall Street Journal says Birchwood is "a skilled, energetic and original artist…His songwriting is observant, clever and pointed. His voice is smooth; his singing on target. His guitar fluency generates new licks and rhythmic surprises. Expectations have been high for Mr. Birchwood—and he lives up to them." Birchwood's meteoric rise from playing small Florida clubs to headlining international festival stages is nothing short of phenomenal, as he continues to set the contemporary blues world on fire. His deep familiarity with blues tradition allows him to bust the genre wide open, adding new sounds, colors and textures, all delivered with a revival tent preacher's fervor and a natural storyteller's charisma. With his new album, Pick Your Poison, Birchwood, along with his band—saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney "Big Love" Girlie—takes a major step forward, crafting visionary blues for a new generation of forward-looking fans.

Rebecca. 1940. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
June 30, 2018 - New York

1940. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The new wife of a wealthy widower finds herself trapped in the shadow of her predecessor. Hitchcock declares, "Well, in preparatory stages of Rebecca, [producer David O.] Selznick insisted on testing every woman in town, known or unknown, for the lead in the picture. I think he really was trying to repeat the same publicity stunt he pulled in the search of Scarlett O'Hara. He talked all the big stars in town into doing tests for Rebecca. I found it a little embarrassing myself, testing women who I knew in advance were unsuitable for the part." 130 min.

Radnor & Lee: Josh Radnor & Ben Lee w/ Haroula Rose - City Winery
June 30, 2018 - New York

Friends for over a decade actor/musician Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) and indie-troubadour Ben Lee have formed a new indie-pop duo by the name of Radnor & Lee.

Their debut single "Be Like The Being" is a dynamically uplifting, spiritual folk-pop tune that instills the feeling of pure joy in the listener's core via the infectious melody, sweet violin, heavenly harmonies, and foot-stomping chorus. Radnor & Lee are enlightening, charming and perfectly delightful.

Hitchcock explains his reasons for wanting artist Salvador Dalí to collaborate on Spellbound's famous dream sequence: "I asked [producer David O.] Selznick if he could get Dalí to work with us and he agreed, though I think he didn't really understand my reasons for wanting Dalí. He probably thought I wanted his collaboration for publicity purposes. The real reason was that I wanted to convey the dreams with great visual sharpness and clarity, sharper than the film itself. I wanted Dalí because of the architectural sharpness of his work." 111 min.

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.

Ólafur Arnalds: All Strings Attached - Le Poisson Rouge
June 30, 2018 - West Village

Ólafur Arnalds BAFTA Award winning artist, composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds proudly announces more dates of his his 2018 /2019 world tour: Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians are back in the lab, working on the "ALL STRINGS ATTACHED." tour, which will feature past, present and brand new material from his forthcoming album. The idea for "ALL STRINGS ATTACHED." was born out of our forgotten, yet inherent interconnectedness; the unity of all things and the interdependent nature of us humans. The tour, featuring Ólafur and a uniquely wired ensemble of a string-quintet, drums, 2 Disclaviers and other artists and technological elements to be announced, seeks to act as a mirror for a society which celebrates the fleeting and ephemeral, while shunning the enduring and avoiding true connections. It is an invitation to commit – to oneself, to each other, and to the moment, as the Zeitgeist notion of "no strings attached…" gives way to the spirit of "ALL STRINGS ATTACHED."

Grant Green: Evolution of Funk - Jazz Standard
Through July 01, 2018 - New York

Grant Green was a giant of jazz guitar who "combined an extensive foundation in R&B with a mastery of bebop and simplicity that put expressiveness ahead of technical expertise." (AllMusic) Beginning in 1961 with Grant's First Stand, his debut as a leader, Green recorded prolifically for Blue Note Records; as a sideman, he appeared on important Blue Note dates with such notables as vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, saxophonists Hank Mobley and Ike Quebec, and organists Jimmy Smith and Larry Young. Grant Green's reputation has grown considerably since his untimely death in 1979, and now Resonance Records has unearthed some glorious and previously unissued live sessions: Funk in France: From Paris to Antibes (1969–1970); and Slick! Live at Oil Can Harry's, recorded in 1975 in Vancouver, B.C. This special Jazz Standard engagement presents an all–star quintet led by the guitarist's son Grant Green Jr. (born 1955 in St. Louis MO) and featuring the tried–and–true talents of saxophonist Donald Harrison Jr., keyboards master Mark Cary, and drummer Mike Clark, all established bandleaders and re¬cording artists in their own right.

Deon Cole Headlines Gotham Comedy Club - Gotham Comedy Club
Through July 01, 2018 - New York

Deon Cole is one of the most in-demand talents on the comedy scene. Not only is he currently a cast member on four hit TV shows, he has also appeared in several popular feature films, released multiple standup specials, and follows a non-stop tour schedule. Armed with a “comic authority born of undeniable charisma” (AV Club), Deon’s completely unique style and delivery have made him a wildly popular performer with fans and critics alike. Deon plays the character of adjunct college professor "Charlie" on ABC's hit series “Black-ish.” His role on the Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award winning show, now in its fourth season, is a favorite, with Vulture declaring “Deon Cole is a comedic genius,” AV Club naming him a “scene stealer,” and Variety offering “Cole reminds me of John Belushi, another performer who brought essential sweetness to his unpredictable characters, and who could make you laugh just by looking a certain way at another person on screen.” In January 2018 Deon brought the beloved “Charlie” to Freeform in the “Black-ish” spinoff series “Grown-ish.” Deon also stars as “Det. Daniel "DJ" Tanner” on the TBS comedy Angie Tribeca. The popular show, created by Steve and Nancy Carell, also stars Rashida Jones and is currently in its fourth season. In addition to his three scripted shows, Deon hosts the game show “Face Value” currently airing on BET. The show, Executive Produced by Wanda Sykes, finally answers the age-old question, “Can you judge a book by its cover?” “Face Value” flips the script to award cash and prizes to contestants for correctly guessing facts about strangers from all walks of life – based solely on their appearance and a few personal details. As host, Deon humorously breaks down stereotypes, exposes prejudices and celebrates the human spirit by highlighting the commonalities and differences among people of various backgrounds, races, religions, beliefs and life experiences. In addition, Deon will appear in the Whitney Cummings directed film “The Female Brian.” Fellow cast members of the much-anticipated feature include Toby Kebbell, Beanie Feldstein, Cecily Strong, Sofia Vergara, Blake Griffin, Lucy Punch and James Marsden. He has also been featured on several other comedy fan-favorite series including Benched (USA), The League (FX), and Wild N’ Out with Nick Cannon (MTV), Conan (TBS), @midnight (Comedy Central), Last Call with Carson Daly (NBC), The Talk (CBS) and The Real (BET). Deon performs standup to sold out audiences at venues across the country. He is originally from the south side of Chicago and currently lives in Los Angeles. Visit: http://deoncole.com/.

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.

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.

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.

SIDRA BELL DANCEW NEW YORK - New York Live Arts
Through July 01, 2018 - NEW YORK

About Sidra Bell Dance New York:? SIDRA BELL DANCE NEW YORK is gaining an international profile for work that reveals aspects of the human condition through a female lens. The work demands physical power and tender expressiveness from her ensemble. The Company and Bell’s work has been performed extensively throughout the USA, Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia, Canada, and South America. It was named "#1 in Contemporary Dance" by the Pittsburgh Examiner, as one of ArtsATL’s "Notable Dance Performances", and in the "Top 10 for Best in Dance" by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Bell’s intuitive process is collaborative and emphasizes the integration of design elements including media and fashion. BELL is a sought after educator and has won several awards. She received commissions from institutions internationally and has produced over 100 new works. She was the choreographer on the critically acclaimed feature movie entitled TEST.

SBDNY was featured in director Jovan Todorovic's film as part of MOTIONPOEMS' 8th Season. About F R I C T I O N (new work)?FRICTION is a collaboration between Sidra Bell Dance New York, Juilliard trained electronic composer and clarinetist Alexey Gorokholinsky and lighting designer/creative director Amith Chandrashaker. The work navigates resistance, violence, desensitization, and counter culture. We will look at the current trajectory of despair and dystopia that permeates our relationship to other bodies. The idea of friction in the physicality, space, and music was prompted by a personal navigation of disconnection, loneliness, and aimlessness. It will deal with finding roots and anchoring oneself in tumultuousness. The work has a poetic structure steeped in imagery and sensation. The work lives in a state of recalibration not necessarily ever finding a center or stasis. Through entry points (movement, sound, light, décor) we will create an atmosphere that embraces instability and counter activity. About garment (2014)?garment is a playful jaunt that attempts to rescue the individual by constructing a world that navigates popular?zeitgeists. Conceived through materials the work exercises small performance ceremonies to observe identity,?appropriation, transfiguration, nonsense, influence, authorship, and reformation. you'll be remembered...### Photography: David Flores Productions (2018)

Half Time - Paper Mill Playhouse
Through July 01, 2018 - Millburn

One Remarkable Dance Team. One Big Chance. One Small Twist…You've Got to Be Over 60! From the director/choreographer of Kinky Boots comes the incredible true story of ten ordinary seniors with extraordinary dreams who audition to dance at halftime for a major basketball team. Only after making the cut do they learn they won't be dancing tap, salsa, or swing–instead, they will bring down the house with a style that is entirely new to them: hip-hop. Take the uplifting journey with these dreamers–and the young coaches who inspire them along the way–as they battle self-doubt, stereotypes, and even each other for a chance to bust a move at center court in front of the 20,000 screaming fans. Together they remind us that in life, when the odds are stacked against you and the challenges seem too great to overcome, it's not the end of the game–it's Half Time.

Tom Harrel - Village Vanguard
Through July 01, 2018 - New York

The trumpeter Tom Harrell has been doing this a long time, through various schools and vogues: He can play slow and fast and in between, sometimes all within a single line. But his improvising is always temperate and proportionate. He keeps you on the hook, but doesn't shout, doesn't stop the clock. Plenty of improvisers are specialists in now-ness, revealing a solo as a series of events, or present-tense flashes. With Mr. Harrell, it's all one event. He's always processing ahead and behind, and you feel as if you're hearing the whole of the narrative at all times, from was to is to will be...Mr. Harrell has been one of the best composers, improvisers and bandleaders in jazz since the late '80s, and he knows how to make contrasts sound exciting: playing slowly over a fast tempo, playing quietly but with power. But he also uses the contrast of his own sound set against that of the groups he's playing in.

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

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

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

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

Through July 03, 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.

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.

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.

In typical fashion, playwright Jordi Galcerán (author of Burundanga) surprises his audiences with twists and turns until the end.

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife, an exhibition exploring the history of the ground-breaking Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, examines the circumstances that inspired early environmentalists—many of them women and New Yorkers—to champion the protection of endangered birds. Administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Migratory Bird Act prohibited the hunting, killing, trading, and shipping of migratory birds. It also regulated the nation's commercial plume trade, which had decimated many American bird species to the point of near extinction.

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.

Opera Saratoga Announces 2018 Festival Program - The Spa Little Theatre
Through July 15, 2018 - Saratoga Springs

OPERA SARATOGA ANNOUNCES 2018 SUMMER FESTIVAL PROGRAM THE MERRY WIDOW Music by Franz Lehár; Libretto by Victor Léon and Leo Stein  THE CONSUL Music and Libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti ROCKING HORSE WINNER - American Premiere Music by Gareth Williams; Libretto by Anna Chatterton VINKENSPORT, or THE FINCH OPERA - World Premiere of Chamber Version Music by David T. Little; Libretto by Royce Vavrek Saratoga Springs, NY - Opera Saratoga's Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson announced that the company's 2018 Summer Festival will feature new productions of four operas at in Spa State Park, along with a wide variety of free and ticketed concert events from May 26 through July 15 at venues throughout the region. One of the most popular operettas across the globe, THE MERRY WIDOW returns to Opera Saratoga for the first time in thirty years next summer. Hanna Glawari, the Merry Widow, is beautiful and rich... and she's captivated every man in the country. But Hanna is looking for true love. Will she be able to find a suitor that is not only after her wealth? Will the nation of Pontevedro slip into economic collapse if she marries a foreigner? Will all those dancing girls prove too distracting for the audience?! Franz Lehár's magical score features the famous "Vilja" song, the "Merry Widow Waltz," and many more beloved melodies. The Merry Widow, which was composed in 1905, ushered in a new era of operettas in which the waltz was used for romantic plot purposes, and was danced as much as sung. Opera Saratoga's new production continues the company's Opera-in-Motion initiative, in which dance is prominently integrated into one production each summer. The Merry Widow will be directed and choreographed by John de los Santos, and conducted by Anthony Barrese, both making their company debuts. Soprano Cecilia Violetta López (Beatrice in Il Postino, 2016) returns to star in the title role, alongside the company debut of baritone Jonathan Beyer as Danilo.   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...

Glenn Goldberg - The New York Studio School
Through July 15, 2018 - New York

The New York Studio School presents Glenn Goldberg: Plums and Breezes, June 7 – July 15, 2018. Plums and Breezes is a selection of small works spanning extensive range in time, the earliest made while Goldberg was a student at the Studio School. Rather than a retrospective or complete oeuvre of Goldberg’s many periods and bodies of work, this exhibition is a lineage of excerpts joined by a common scale, stamina, and quiet magnitude. The works are all presented as equals, not through a chronological passing of time, but as different pieces that comprise Glenn Goldberg’s ideals and explorations as an image maker. Uniting the compositions is a main, often central, anchor around which brushstrokes and subsequent forms orbit. Each piece has a cluster of activity, with a rhythm of marks or a void to hold the constellation in place. Goldberg states, “This show is only one possible way of sharing a history. The hope is that the paintings and drawings reflect the quiet intensity that has been my experience while working for many years. They include nature, people, and places and are made from both what exists and my imagination.” The paintings may be derived from memories, dreams, real or imagined experiences, but through their symbolic imagery and meditative mark making, they exist in an other-worldly space, beyond the tangible. Despite this transcendence, the pieces are forcefully human. The hand is felt through the small marks, repetitive but not mechanical, and characters are recognized within the forms. Each piece in the exhibition draws the viewer in for close inspection, an experience reflecting the intimate space required for its making. Glenn Goldberg was born in the Bronx, studied at the New York Studio School in 1977-78, and received a MFA from Queens College. He was named the 1996 Heilman Artist and has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. Goldberg’s work is in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Academy of Arts and Letters, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

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
Through July 22, 2018 - Manhattan

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 [email protected] 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.

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

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

Not an edge but a hinge - Abrons Arts Center
Through August 05, 2018 - New York

The 2018 edition of the annual AIRspace exhibition features work by 2017-2018 visual arts residents Christopher Aque, Priyanka Dasgupta and Chad Marshall, Carl E. Hazlewood, Trokon Nagbe, Macon Reed, Gabriela Salazar, Patrice Renee Washington, and Chris Watts. Marking the culmination of their residency at Abrons Arts Center, Not an edge but a hinge presents works across a range of media, including painting, sculpture, video, and site-specific installation, and is organized by AIRspace curatorial residents Christian Camacho-Light and Alexis Wilkinson. Aligning with Abrons' wide-ranging multidisciplinary performance and educational programming, Not an edge but a hinge attends to difference within shared time and space. Occupying the building's three main galleries, the exhibition takes a kaleidoscopic approach in order to honor the complex and shifting affinities between individual artworks. In the exhibition, several works withhold the figure from view, privileging the outline or trace over direct representation, investigating notions of disclosure or voyeurism. Others establish an indexical, material, or metaphorical relationship to place, often marking displacement or loss. Additional works use aesthetic forms and cultural objects as means of excavating histories of social violence, emphasizing their ties to the present. These overlapping elements function like hinges within a network of flexible relations, ultimately reflecting how these artists approach issues of identity in ways that elude and exceed a fixed reading.

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!

Through a series of interviews and vignettes, we explore Wellington's life from his humble beginnings as a motherless child in the Foster/Adoption system of California, to his sexy exploits as a serial monogamist with a diverse selection of male and female lovers, all the way through his unconventional outlook and relationship with HIV/AIDS, and right into his underground rise to notoriety on the NYC gay ballroom scene as a member of the "House Of Le Blanc". What lies beyond his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer will be sure to shock as audiences witness his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and "criminal".

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.

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.

Erwin Wurm: Hot Dog Bus - Brooklyn Bridge Park
Through August 26, 2018 - Brooklyn

This June, artist Erwin Wurm will bring his "Hot Dog Bus" to one of New York City’s most popular summer destinations, Brooklyn Bridge Park. This modified, vintage Volkswagen Microbus has been transformed into a bright yellow, overstuffed food truck from which free hot dogs will be served to visitors all summer, hinting at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and the artist’s Austrian homeland. 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.

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.

From seminal post-graffiti works to his rare but robust formal output throughout the 1980s, the show features important artworks and sculptures created over the last 20 years of his life. The exhibition gathers archival materials and artworks from RAMM?LLZ??'s estate and collections around the world, alongside oral histories recently commissioned by Red Bull Arts New York.

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.

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.

The German collection spans the period from 1890 to 1940, and emphasizes the key movements of that era, including Expressionism, with canvases by members of the Brücke (Bridge), including Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, and also artists affiliated with the Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider), such as Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, August Macke, and Gabriele Münter. The Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement is also addressed, with important selections by Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, and Christian Schad. In the decorative arts, the Bauhaus is a special area of emphasis, with major examples of design by Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld. Collectively, these works reflect this tumultuous epoch in German history, as the nation shifted from an empire to a fragile democracy under the Weimar Republic following World War I. Likewise, the utopian ideal of uniting art and life in the pre-war era was replaced by a more practical embrace of a machine aesthetic, as artists reconciled themselves to the emergence of modern technology.

Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele: 1918 Centenary - Neue Galerie New York
Through September 03, 2018 - New York

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) and Egon Schiele (1890-1918) are two of the greatest artists Austria produced in the early twentieth century. Although born nearly thirty years apart, both tragically died in 1918—the same year that the Austro-Hungarian Empire ceased to exist following its defeat in World War I. Over the intervening century, the works of Klimt and Schiele have come to define the fertile creativity that marked the so-called "joyous apocalypse," an apt term used to connote the waning days of Habsburg rule. This show pays tribute to the groundbreaking achievements of Klimt and Schiele, two masterful artists who are key figures in the collection of the Neue Galerie New York.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Visitors can take a pause inside the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, an immersive installation inspired by traditional Tibetan household shrines. They are also invited to write letters to future museumgoers in a dedicated area in the gallery.

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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