Roots Nyc | Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge & Special Guest Appearance - Cielo
July 04, 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.

"And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!" –President Whitmore From Red Coats to Red Scares, America has seen (and defeated) just about everything in its wake. We brought democracy to Vietnam and South America, peacefully negotiated a ceasefire with the Japanese in WWII and got WMDs out of the hands of Saddam Hussein (America definitely did those things, right?). But this 4th of July, Lady Liberty faces her greatest foe to date: Extraterrestrials! We'll be celebrating Independence Day with Independence Day, and we'll be doing it all day! Beginning at noon, we'll be watching Will Smith save the world on a loop on all of our screens. You're going to need a stiff drink for this one – and we'll have them for you! We'll be helping you celebrate America with $3 Budweisers. That's right, the beer so American they once changed their name to America to prove their American bona fides, at a price that allows you to consume even more.

Vinterbrødre (Winter Brothers). 2017. Directed by Hlynur Pálmason - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through July 04, 2018 - New York

2017. Denmark/Iceland. Directed by Hlynur Pálmason. Emil (Elliott Crosset Hove), a lonely, eccentric young man, lives and works in a desolate Danish limestone mining community with his much more sociable brother. Few notice Emil until he is suspected of causing a coworker's grave illness, which leads to his further isolation. A landscape covered in indistinguishable white ash and snow masks the darkness that comes to envelop him. Shot on 16mm film, this debut feature by Icelandic visual artist/filmmaker Hlynur Pálmason is a daring, immersive sensory experience. The story, emotional tone, color temperature, dialogue, body language, landscape, and soundscape share equal prominence in creating a unique experience of total cinema. In Danish; English subtitles. 100 min.

Brooklyn Traditional Slow Jam - The Old Stone House
July 04, 2018 - Brooklyn

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

1960. USA. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The proprietor of a remote roadside motel engages in some rather disturbing extracurricular activities. Hitchcock comments on the opening of Psycho: "I wanted to say we were in Phoenix, and we even spelled out the day and time, but I only did that to lead up to a very important fact: that it was two-forty-three in the afternoon and this is the only time the poor girl has to go to bed with her lover. It suggests that she's spent the whole lunch hour with him." 109 min.

How Much Feeling? The Mix-up in Men about Coldness & Warmth - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
July 05, 2018 - New York

Men and women alike have felt ashamed of being uncaring, too cold to the feelings of others. They’ve also felt they could be “warm” in ways that were inaccurate, that didn’t seem logical to them. Meanwhile, they’ve had a fear—a fear they haven’t understood—of large feeling. Aesthetic Realism explains this confusion—and the beautiful, accurate, aesthetic solution to it—as consultants Bruce Blaustein and Derek Mali and associate Edward Green will show. They’ll tell what they’ve learned about the subject, giving vivid examples from their own lives and those of men in the fields of music, history, and drama. And you’ll hear instances of what men are learning right now in Aesthetic Realism consultations, which is enabling them to have the relation of true accuracy and honest feeling everyone longs for.

July 05, 2018 - New York

"Hailing from North Bronx NY, Denzil Porter "is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Denzil Porter sounds like an artist fresh out of the golden era of Hip Hop. Adding substance to his witty lyrics, catchy hooks, quotes, and highly charismatic performances. What Denzil aims to achieve with his music is to allow its listeners to be inspired and to uplift them and others around them. Denzil may not be your typical conscientious rapper, he derives his lyrics from his experiences and allows his actions to tell his story rather than his words. The music captivates the mind and takes you into the world he envisions and you'll always leave with "

Children of a Lesser God - Studio 54
July 05, 2018 - New York

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

Cassidy feat. Ras Kass, Ruste Juxx, Jake Palumbo & Cambatta - Highline Ballroom
July 05, 2018 - New York

Cassidy The first MC of significance to be supported by Swizz Beatz's J-affiliated Full Surface label, Cassidy is a fresh-faced Philadelphian who gained a lot of attention as a battle rapper -- with a successful bout against Freeway as one of the first feathers in his cap. People who had been following him through several mixtape appearances were more than a little surprised by the angle taken on his first solo single, "Hotel." Rather than build on his street credibility, Cassidyused the song -- with vocal hooks courtesy of R. Kelly -- to establish himself as an MC who could just deliver a fluffy chart-aimed hit with equal ease. "Hotel" more or less piggybacked Chingy's "Holidae In" as a like-themed tune into the upper reaches of the singles charts, all the while being as light musically as the same rapper's "One Call Away." Split Personality, Cassidy's debut album, arrived just as "Hotel" was peaking, in March of 2004, and debuted at the number two spot on the Billboard album chart. The following year, the MC returned with the harder I'm a Hustla, which was released roughly two weeks after he was charged with a murder that took place in his Philadelphia neighborhood. The extra attention had no negative effect on his career, with 2007's B.A.R.S.: The Barry Adrian Reese Story bowing in the Top Ten of the Billboard album chart; its lead single, "My Drink 'N My Two Step" (also produced by Swizz Beatz), peaked at number 11 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart.

Valentina Marino - Zinc Bar
July 05, 2018 - New York

Passion and vulnerability resonate in every phrase of Valentina Marino's music. A channel of artistic individualism, the Italian-born singer, composer and lyricist draws inspiration for her compositions and arrangements from personal experiences and universal insight. Brimming with evocative phrasing through a lush tone, Marino's music is an extension of her sensitivity and imagination as an artist and a human being. Leader of the Valentina Marino Quartet--a distinctive sound project whose rhythm section features Cameron Brown, Anthony Pinciotti and Alberto Pibiri--she responds to each moment with a clarity of intention and an honest expression of self. Vocalist, songwriter, arranger and lyricist Valentina Marino brings the sensitivity, sophistication and earthiness of her Mediterranean roots to cutting edge jazz. "Her depth of feeling…touches the hearts of all who hear her...Valentina Marino's interpretation of Dorham's "Blue Bossa" with Lawson's lyric paints pictures of the flow of waters' life that transcend the notion of singing into a numinous expression of authentic artistry' says Grammy nominee Janet Lawson. "A musician who loves to share the magic" - in the words of jazz vocalist Amy London; "Creative, spontaneous: a passionate vocalist with an enormous capacity to communicate with her audience"- Cameron Brown, bassist and band leader.

Summer Thursdays: Habibi - The Museum of Modern Art
July 05, 2018 - New York

Brooklyn-based quintet Habibi was formed in the spring of 2011 by Detroit natives Rahill Jamalifard and Lenny Lynch, who bonded over their love of Middle Eastern psych music. Tapping into their Motown roots for simple but infectious pop melodies delivered with punkish attitude, the two recruited Karen Isabel and Leah Fishman; Alana Amram often joins the line-up. The band quickly received critical accolades for its self-titled Burger Records debut, heralded by The New Yorker as "stunning." In 2018 Habibi released Cardamom Garden, which Pitchfork characterized as "full of music that blends cultures, languages, and genres, with charming and intriguing results . . . shedding rigid definitions of what constitutes American music."

Days of Wild - The Red Lion
July 05, 2018 - New York

Emmet Cohen - Birdland
July 05, 2018 - New York

Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen has emerged as one of his generation's pivotal figures in music and the related arts. A recognized prodigy, Cohen began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three, and his playing quickly became a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. Downbeat observed that his "nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary indicate he's above any convoluted technical showmanship." In the same spirit, Cohen himself has noted that playing jazz is "about communicating the deepest level of humanity and individuality; it's essentially about connections," both among musicians and with audiences. Possessing a fluid technique, an innovative tonal palette, and an expansive repertoire, Cohen plays with the command of a seasoned veteran and the passion of an artist fully devoted to his medium.

Dreamboy & Friends - Mercury Lounge
July 06, 2018 - New York

DREAMBOY & FRIENDS

Video Age - Mercury Lounge
July 06, 2018 - New York

On Video Age's forthcoming album Pop Therapy, out June 15 via Inflated Records, longtime friends and songwriting partners Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli conjure up a thrilling assortment of experimental pop songs. Using a palette of vintage synthesizers and the propulsion of a Sequential Circuits Drumtraks drum machine, the New Orleans-based group's buoyant synth-pop echoes from some imagined vision of the past, leaning on an invented nostalgia to soundtrack an ideal future that never arrived. Video Age brings that future fully to life on Pop Therapy. Emerging from New Orleans' DIY scene and label collectives, Farbe and Micarelli were intrigued by each other's songwriting among several curiously satisfying guitar pop bands. As a producer and prolific engineer, Farbe has helmed some of the most exciting releases from genre-pushing New Orleans artists, whose singular visions are made possible with his gifted ear and love of tape recording. Micarelli's talent for crafting simple, tangible melodies complements Farbe's studio world-building, letting ideas drift until they emerge into impressive arrangements. The pair's seemingly effortless gift for crafting earworm hooks was glimpsed on their 2016 debut Living Alone, a gorgeous collection of guitar-driven melancholy. On Pop Therapy, they're joined by Duncan Troast, Nick Corson and Jordan Odom, taking inspiration from the limitless possibility on sonic canvases of the late 1970s and early 1980s (Yellow Magic Orchestra, McCartney II, Donald Fagen's The Nightfly). Where Living Alone catalogued the solitude of reflecting on what was and could have been, the sentimental love songs on Pop Therapy gaze longingly at the likeliness of a brighter tomorrow.

Jerry Drake and The Front Page Big Band - Knockdown Center
July 06, 2018 - Maspeth

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

Hello Halo, Quantum Split, Tempest City - The Bowery Ballroom
July 06, 2018 - New York

When Hello Halo coalesced in late 2016, forming from the ashes of New York City rock band Chasing Carmen, they had no idea their first gig, just a few short months later, would entail headlining a sold-out Gramercy Theatre, one of NYC's most prominent, storied venues. Since that incredible first gig in February 2017, Hello Halo's five members—Paul Gimenez, lead vocalist; Jon Bernstein, lead guitarist; Zack Rome, rhythm guitarist; Jeremy Bernstein, bassist; and Paul Adler, drummer and backup vocalist—have done in a handful of months what it takes most bands their first few years to accomplish. Keeping a relatively low profile through the summer, the band put in the work: scheming about a first album, writing absurdly catchy riffs, beats, and lyrics at a feverish pace, and tracking with Rocky Gallo at Brooklyn's Virtue and Vice Studios. After laying down several pieces of undeniable, inimitable ear candy, the boys headed out to St. Louis for a one-off show in August 2017 (it was actually in East St. Louis, in Illinois—a bleak industrial landscape populated by refineries, factories, gas stations, and more than a handful of strip joints—but that's a story for another time). Now, the guys are back home in New York, working hard and playing even harder. They benefit from a wealth of experience: Most of the guys have played since primary school and much of the band still keep their feet firmly planted on the business side of the music industry. This means not only do they have highly refined skills as instrumentalists and songwriters, they've got plenty of friends, fans, and industry folks behind them. On the eve of releasing their first batch of songs, Hello Halo are prepped to come out guns blazing; if they were you, they'd be ready for a hell of a ride—oh, and probably a lot of beer.

CEG Presents Air Sex Championships: 10 Year Anniversary Show sponsored by Real Sex Love Dolls - Drom
July 06, 2018 - New York

It's a magical blend of coordination, showmanship, humor, and interactive storytelling. It's a comedy show that brings people together in a respectfully dirty, unpredictably ridiculous, and oddly touching celebration of sexual freedom and expression. It's neon-lit gyrating silhouettes. It's organized confusion. It's voyeurism 2.0. It's the funniest thing you ever saw that night at that place with those people. It's in-your-face, in-your-front, in-your-back honesty for the whole world to see. It's a serious competition to see who can fake-f*ck nobody better than anybody else. This is Air Sex. Entering its tenth year as a nationally touring roadshow, Air Sex is the worlds first SPART – a combination of sports and art. Each Air Sex show combines the pageantry and prestige of professional sports with the excitement and creativity of a first-rate talent competition. Think Air Guitar, but instead of pretending to play boring old musical instruments, Air Sex participants have jaw-dropping sexual encounters with an invisible partner (or partners!) using nothing more than the art of pelvic storytelling and pure imagination. Beyond that, it's a show you'll have to experience yourself to believe.

To Bare the Rose ||| a Visual Memoir - Dixon Place
July 06, 2018 - New York

to Bare the Rose ||| a visual memoir is a solo self-exploration of intimacy and trauma under love. This memoir recounts, redefines, and relearns truths of Black Queer Femme Love, and the ways violence retaliates against it. It is an interdisciplinary work encompassing movement, film, voice-overs, installation, and poetry to share the encounters of a lover who fails to love the self and others at the same time. This competition between self-love and self-lost manifests a need for truth seeking and vulnerability through memory. to Bare the Rose is itself a healing journey through acts of self-research, creating, and baring. About the artist: Nana Chinara creates. She's Black, Queer, and a gleaming glitterbeam. She dreams up worlds in her body, and offers them to the stage. A performance artist, youth educator, and loquacious lover, her craft calls upon exploring sweet intimacy with the self, and seeking the truths in her heart. From contemporary to burlesque to healing to revealing, she's fascinated with her journey to liberating her body. Her art is the lens through which she conducts self and community research on violence against young black femmes, traumatic partnerships, and multidimensional love.

Challenge of the Masters. 1976. Directed by Lau Kar-leung - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
July 06, 2018 - New York

1976. Hong Kong. Directed by Lau Kar-leung. With Gordon Liu Chia-hui, Chen Kuan-tai, Lau Kar-leung. DCP. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 93 min. Over 100 films have fictionalized the story of the legendary folk hero Wong Fei-hung, presenting him as a revered master of kung fu and a leader in moral virtues. Lau Kar-leung chose instead to use his sophomore directorial effort to focus on the making of the master, and he would continue to explore this theme in later films. Wong (Gordon Liu Chia-hui) appears as a hotheaded young man initially too rash to become a role model. Under the tutelage of Luk Ah Choi (Chen Kuan-tai), a celebrated practitioner of the Shaolin tradition, Liu undergoes rigorous training not only in kung fu but also, more importantly, in humility and kindness—the qualities that make a true, honorable kung fu master.

The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter. 1984. Directed by Lau Kar-leung - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art

Evil general Pan Mei entraps Yang family warriors into a tragic battle that leaves almost their entire clan killed. While one brother returns home a traumatized shell, the other, Yang Wu-lang (Gordon Liu Chia-hui), seeks refuge in a monastery, where he develops the invincible eight diagram pole fighting technique. But this life of spiritual solace does little to tame his desire for vengeance. When his sister (Kara Wai) is captured by Pan, Yang emerges for a final showdown. Lau Kar-leung's most emotionally dramatic picture features some of his most stunning group action scenes. The director appears in a small role as a hunter who puts on a spectacular fight to assist Yang's escape.

Time to celebrate the teen adaptation of Les Liaisons Dangereuses that made us all a little too comfortable with incest, along with a cocktail that made us a little too comfortable mixing liquors. (The '90s were a crazy time.) Annette (Reese Witherspoon) unwittingly becomes a pawn in Sebastian's (Ryan Phillippe) and Kathryn's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) deliciously diabolical wager of sexual conquest when she writes an article in Seventeen Magazine about how she intends to stay pure until she marries her boyfriend. However, Sebastian gets more than he bargained for as he attempts to woo Annette into his bed. Dir. Roger Kumble. 1999. 97 min.

REVEL 9 takes great care to blend the best from those two fan-heavy genres, and with that care, the band continues to deliver the hard-hitting, insightful and intense music that has solidified them as a staple in the Northeastern Hard Rock scene. Fans of bands like Chevelle, Deftones, A Perfect Circle and Three Days Grace really have a lot to find in REVEL 9.

Quickly, Quickly, Naji, Instupendo, Tsar of Gamble (Ehiorobo), Lussx - Mercury Lounge
July 07, 2018 - New York

Naji is a singer-songwriter/producer from Eerie, PA. Naji will be releasing an EP with Soulection later this year, as well as his own self-released EP. His song, Mona Lisa, has charted over 4 million plays since February.... Philadelphia electronic artist Instupendo floats into earshot with original downtempo compositions that listeners say they turn to when they feel, or want to feel, a certain way. Dancing Astronaut compared his distinctive sound as "something akin to taking Tycho's work, incepting it into a dreamscape, and slowing it way down", while The Deli Magazine called it "lucid while out of focus; a silken and ethereal logic operating somewhere in the space between trap and ambient." Like many of his peers, Instupendo (aka Aidan Peterson) got his start as a pre-teen on Soundcloud, organically building a fanbase and network of collaborators before venturing onto commercial streaming services in 2016. Within months, his single "Beauty Unit" was featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds and subsequently charted on Billboard's Spotify Viral 50. Successive singles, including "Falling", "Light Lock", and "Comfort Chain", secured additional playlist placements and attention from the likes of Indie Shuffle, Majestic Casual, ChillHop Music, La Belle Musique and ThisSongIsSick. 2017 saw Pigeons & Planes naming him an essential rising artist to watch, and Cosmo's Midnight tapping him to remix their hit "History". The resulting minimal emotional ballad transformed the funky R&B original. Instupendo followed up with his debut EP "Friend of a Friend", featuring collaborations with artists Lontalius and Benny Sings. Nest HQ dubbed the EP "an emphatic assertion that Instupendo's time has arrived." The young producer concluded the year with a remix of Grammy-winning remixer RAC's "Unusual feat. MNDR" which promptly charted at #1 on Hype Machine's remix chart and landed the top spot on Apple Music's global Today's Chill playlist. Early 2018 finds Instupendo heading in exciting directions with his signature sound palette on his sophomore EP, "Faces I Know".

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.

The Body BIG|BRAVE Lingua Ignota King Vision Ultra - Saint Vitus Bar
July 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

On No One Deserves Happiness, The Body's Chip King and Lee Buford set out to make "the grossest pop album of all time." The album themes of despair and isolation are delivered by the unlikely pairing of the Body's signature heaviness and 80s dance tracks. The Body can emote pain like no other band, and their ability to move between the often strict confines of the metal world and the electronic music sphere is on full display throughout No One Deserves Happiness, an album that eludes categorization. More than any of their genre-defying peers, The Body does it without softening their disparate influences towards a middle ground, but instead through a beautiful combining of extremes. No One Deserves Happiness is an album that defies definition and expectations, standing utterly alone. Buford and King are outliers at their core, observing the world as if apart from it. They strive for music without a category. They embody many contrasts. They are open and playful as well as thoughtful and disciplined. Live, they deliver punishing volume and scale with their spare duo set up, expanding their sound through a complex set of effects on both guitar and drums. For records, they approach things entirely differently and expand their group in the studio to include Seth Manchester and Keith Souza from Machines with Magnets (their long-time studio), as well as Chrissy Wolpert of The Assembly of Light Choir. The list of instruments used on No One Deserves Happiness is an unexpected collection that includes 808 drum machine, a cello and a trombone. The band employs instruments in their unprocessed state for the simple beauty of the sound, and then in equal measure push them to their most extreme (for example, the sounds at the end of "The Fall and the Guilt" are created by a guitar and a cello). Because they create an entirely singular sound, The Body is in high demand for collaborations with artists across the musical spectrum, from The Bug to Full of Hell to The Haxan Cloak and beyond. They build albums that are as lush and dense as a rain forest and as unforgiving.

Skintight - The Laura Pels Theatre
Through July 08, 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.

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.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through July 09, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

"The 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.

Wicked - Gershwin Theatre
Through July 14, 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.

El Credito - Repertorio Espanol
Through July 14, 2018 - New York

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

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.

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.

Yu He - Agora Gallery
Through July 27, 2018 - New York

The Figure and Unknown Places Self taught painter Yu He's acrylic still lifes and landscapes capture everyday scenes with an expressive palette and painterly brushwork. Born in China and living in the United States, the artist's abstracted compositions offer a playful take on traditional subject matter. She tilts the perspective, eliminates detail, and blurs background and foreground in her works, creating a whimsical effect that challenges the connotations of still life painting. The artist's Still Life No. 579 and Still Life No. 577 depict a typical tablescape with loose, quick brushstrokes, the cool, blue palette lending a sense of calm to the images. Meanwhile, Still Life No. 498, Still Life No. 502, and Still Life No. 575 each image a combination of fruits, flowers, and tableware portrayed with thickly painted turquoise, auburn, and yellow strokes. Horizon lines and fine details are excluded from these works, allowing teacups, blooms, and vases to float in imaginative, richly pigmented environments. Finally, Seaside. Evening No. 372 captures a peachy pink and aqua sunset, the brilliant twilight sky mirrored in the calm waters.

Polly Gibbons - Birdland
Through July 28, 2018 - New York

With warm, soulful vocals and an innate blues sensibility, Polly Gibbons has been likened to many of the jazz and soul greats, but with her own fun, unique style of storytelling. This summer, Polly opened for jazz great George Benson and the "Empress of Soul" Gladys Knight on their sold out UK tours. London Jazz News said of Polly's show at Royal Albert Hall in June that "listening to her open up with soul and passion is a joyous experience." British London-based vocalist Polly Gibbons is one of the most respected and talked about young singer/songwriters of her generation. Being nominated for the prestigious BBC Jazz Award back in 2006 with no album release to her name, was a clear indication of just how special a singer and performer Polly is. Much esteemed by her contemporaries, Polly has built a reputation as an original and gifted voice. With warm, rich, soulful vocals and an innate blues sensibility, Polly has been likened to many of the jazz and soul greats bringing her own storytelling and earnest depth alongside unique humor and fun to performances. Polly's influences are brilliant, broad and inspired - from the poetry of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, to the be-bop of Charlie Parker, the deep wails of Mahalia Jackson's gospel, to the emotional depth of Donny Hathaway, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone; the soul of Marvin Gaye, and the blues of Buddy Guy. Polly is celebrating her new Resonance Records release "Many Faces of Love", a presentation of songs which describe the eternal aspects of Love: Searching for, Finding, Losing, Trying to Reconnect, and finally, the Lessons Learned from the Search.

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

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

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

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

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

Praised for their meticulously-detailed panoramic landscapes, Anglo-French artists Alpha and Chris Mason, known collectively as Hipkiss, have been collaborating for three decades on intricate drawings that interweave dystopian narratives with a personal lexicon of symbolic forms. Past works by Hipkiss chronicle fictional histories of warring clans, urban crusades, and quasi-apocalyptical societies. For Bulwark, the artists' first solo museum show in New York, Hipkiss will present the most recent cycle of drawings in their series The Towers (2015–ongoing). The drawings pull from the myriad allegorical significance of towers as symbols for transcendence, irrational ambition, and piety.

God Save Queen Pam: A New Musical Comedy - Players Theater
Through July 29, 2018 - New York

Harken back to a time before we were all filled with existential dread, and see a new musical comedy that is all about fun, silliness, and laughter. Remember laughter? It’s like a backwards hiccup. In ‘God Save Queen Pam’, the entire royal house of Edevane has died out, and the only living heir is an American bartender from New Jersey. With the help of her devoted staff, Pam Duffy has to figure out her new God-ordained career before the snobby jerks of court unseat her and ruin everything. Hilarity ensues, and nothing else. No, really- we promise: no moments of sad reflection, no ironic nods to the woes of the day, and your cellphone will be off, so no NYT notifications about who tweeted what this time. God Save Queen Pam is running Off-Broadway at the Players Theater from June 21st-July 29th. Performances are at 7pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and 3pm on Sundays. More information can be found at www.godsavequeenpam.com.

Living History Tours - Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium
Through July 31, 2018 - Centerport

For more than a decade, Living History tours have delighted visitors to the elegant 24-room, Spanish-Revival waterfront mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Stories told on the tours are based on the oral histories of people who worked for the Vanderbilts as teenagers and young adults. Some stories originated in Mr. Vanderbilt’s books of his world travels and extensive sea journeys. This summer of 1936 was eventful. “The movie Captains Courageous with Spencer Tracy is playing in the theaters, and Agatha Christie’s new novel, Dumb Witness, is in the bookstores,” said Stephanie Gress, director of curatorial affairs. “Legendary aviator Amelia Earhart is lost at sea in July, and European leaders are faced with threats of German expansion. The U.S. Post Office has just issued a commemorative stamp in honor of the women’s voting rights activist and social reformer Susan B. Anthony on the 30th anniversary of her death in 1906.” Earlier in 1936, New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia – who supported women’s voting rights – had been the keynote speaker at a dinner at the city’s Biltmore Hotel to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Women’s City Club in New York. The Living History presentation is set against this background of national and international news.  LaGuardia is invited to Eagle’s Nest to join a few of the Vanderbilt family members – including William K. Vanderbilt’s brother, Harold; his sister, Consuelo, the Duchess of Marlborough; and her guests Elizabeth Arden, Anne Morgan, and her nephew, Henry Sturgis Morgan, Gress said. Mr. Vanderbilt’s sister, Consuelo, and her guests reminisce about their younger days at Suffragette rallies. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the Museum will display items in two guest rooms that commemorate the centennial of women’s right to vote in New York State. Included will be an enlargement of the Susan B. Anthony stamp, suffrage banners and sashes, and an authentic outfit worn in that era by Consuelo, the Duchess of Marlborough. (Mr. Vanderbilt’s mother, Alva, also had been active in the movement.) The Living History cast: Ellen Mason will play Elizabeth Arden, who created the American beauty industry. Yachtsman Harold Vanderbilt – William’s brother, three-time winner of the America’s Cup, and expert on contract bridge – will be portrayed by Jim Ryan and Gerard Crosson. Peter Reganato will be Pietro, the Italian chef. Dale Spencer will perform as William Belanske, the curator and artist who traveled with Mr. Vanderbilt on his epic journeys. Anne Morgan will be played by Judy Pfeffer and Beverly Pokorny. The Vanderbilt has been called a “museum of a museum” – the mansion, natural-history and marine collections galleries are preserved exactly as they were when the Vanderbilts lived on the estate.

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

Before We're Gone - LocalTheatreNY.com
Through August 05, 2018 - New York

BEFORE WE'RE GONE a new play by Jerry Small, Directed by Joe John Battista A Pulitzer-winning playwright, screenwriter and outspoken political activist, who has disappeared from her high-profile life in New York, Hollywood, and the tabloids, is hiding under an assumed name in a secluded seaside motel in Santa Barbara, California, where she intends to end her life by her own hand. At the very moment she is about to commit suicide, there is a knock on her door. It is a man with whom she had a brief relationship twenty-five years ago, when she was thirty-six and at the height of her Broadway fame and he was a naïve twenty, studying to be a Catholic priest. They met during the nineteen fifties in Reno's famous art-deco Mapes Hotel, where she was staying for her six-weeks divorce. He was working in the hotel while on sabbatical from the Franciscan Order, struggling to resolve doubts about the priesthood and himself. Over the last twenty-five years, they have not seen each other nor spoken. The play stars Leenya Rideout, whose Broadway credits include War Horse, Company, Cabaret and Cyrano de Bergerac. Also starring John Zdrojeski, who has appeared in numerous regional productions. Jay Russell, who has appeared on Broadway, and Emily Juliette Murphy, who has appeared Off Broadway.

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.

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.

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.

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.

And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside.

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

RAMM?LLZ??: Racing for Thunder - Red Bull Studios New York
Through August 26, 2018 - New York

The cultural impact of the equation known as The Rammellzee (1960—2010) — legendary artist, graf writer, hip-hop pioneer, Gothic Futurist theoretician and New York cult icon — set the groundwork for today's interdisciplinary creative hyphenates. Taking over the entirety of Red Bull Arts New York, RAMM?LLZ??'s largest survey to date examines the evolution of the artist's diverse body of work. From seminal post-graffiti works to his rare but robust formal output throughout the 1980s, the show features important artworks and sculptures created over the last 20 years of his life. The exhibition gathers archival materials and artworks from RAMM?LLZ??'s estate and collections around the world, alongside oral histories recently commissioned by Red Bull Arts New York. This historic survey aims to introduce a new generation to an artist-prophet from the edge who found himself, again and again, in the center of everything.

Through September 02, 2018 - Upper West Side

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

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro - The Museum of Arts and Design
Through September 02, 2018 - Columbus Circle

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of 91. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro’s signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women’s domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro’s femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women’s work.

Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro’s subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find inspiration in her embrace of artistic practices outside the art historical canon. To highlight this legacy, works by a select group of contemporary artists, including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian, will be exhibited alongside Schapiro’s signature femmages. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary work brings into critical focus the tremendous role Schapiro’s femmages played in the reframing of craft and decoration, while shining a light on the way artists today, both distinguished and emerging, continue to approach the decorative as a language of abstraction tied to the personal and the political.

Through September 03, 2018 - Norwalk

Follow a rescued baby loggerhead sea turtle through its first year of life. The Aquarium will raise it for release into the Atlantic Ocean next fall. The guest sea turtle, only about 3 inches at first, will live in a new habitat near the "Sea Turtles" exhibit.

Special Exhibit: 'Albino Alligator'  - Maritime Aquarium
Through September 03, 2018 - Norwalk

See a rare “great white of the wetlands” – an 8-foot albino alligator – in a special exhibit. Albino alligators are white because they lack the pigment called melanin that normally gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. Aside from being creamy white, they look and act like a regular gator. 

Albino alligators are very rare because, when young in the wild, they’re more obvious to predators. Plus, white alligators can’t bask in the sun like normal alligators – a necessary behavior for cold-blooded reptiles – because they’re susceptible to sunburns. The Aquarium’s visiting albino alligator will enjoy a special shaded enclosure out on the riverfront courtyard.

Highlights Of German Art from the Collection - Neue Galerie New York
Through September 03, 2018 - New York

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 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Shoes in recent years have culturally transcended their utilitarian purpose to become an object of desire and deliberation, calling up abstract considerations—like the freighted meanings of femininity, power, domination, and aspiration—for both women and men alike.

The exhibition considers the story of the shoe from the perspectives of collection, consumption, presentation, and production with more than 100 pairs of shoes on view. The exhibition will explore larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women's contributions as makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Coordinated by Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History, with Edward Maeder, consulting curator, and Jeanne Gardner Gutierrez, curatorial coordinator.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

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.

In the spectacular IMAX format, the lush jungle is as beautiful as the monkeys, birds, insects and one troublesome jaguar.Variety magazine said: “While nearly all made-for-IMAX educational movies boast breathtaking visuals, this one matches its imagery with an equally memorable story.”  View the trailer at http://skfilms.ca/productions/amazon-adventure-3d/

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

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

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

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

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

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.
