Wake and Unmoored: Public Opening - Queens Museum
July 11, 2018 - Queens

Join us for the public opening of Mel Chin's latest works as part of All Over the Place in Times Square, in a major partnership with Times Square Arts. Wake, commissioned by Times Square Arts, is a 24-foot-tall installation that evokes the hull of a shipwreck crossed with the skeletal remains of a marine mammal. The structure is linked with a carved, 21-foot tall animatronic female sculpture, accurately derived from a figurehead of the opera star Jenny Lind, that was once mounted on the 19th Century clipper ship, the USS Nightingale. The physical construction of Wake is underway at the University of North Carolina at Asheville's STEAM Studio, and is a collaboration between the Engineering and Art & Art History, and Drama Departments with assistance from faculty, staff, other students, and community members, all under the direction of Mel Chin Studio. The artwork calls forth both the city's triumphs and the complicated layers of its past. New York City has become a center of trade, commerce, finance, entertainment, and tourism, but also has a complex history that included the shipping (by the USS Nightingale, among others) of guns and slaves, that augmented this burgeoning city's economy. The expanding past economies are prologue to our current environmental dilemma.

Pearl Charles, Fascinator - Mercury Lounge
July 11, 2018 - New York

Pearl Charles lives in the moment, seeking excitement whether it leads her down a dark, dusty road or into the arms of a trouble-making lover. Her full-length debut album, Sleepless Dreamer, describes late night revelry, love affairs, running away and running towards, serenading the sunrise through whirlwind stories of her native Los Angeles, the city, the canyon, the desert, and the road. On a quest to discover the truest version of herself, Charles embraces the feeling of not being settled, a person who always restlessly wants more from life and is willing chase it, wherever it may lead her. Sleepless Dreamer finds her soulful, often sultry voice gliding through songs tinged with cosmic Americana, a little disco, some classic rock & roll, and a whole lot of that smooth AM gold. Passion, psychedelics and heartbreak inform the highs and lows she rides through the album. Finally able to see clearly through the smoke and mirrors of her surroundings, Charles departs on a consequent journey of questioning and soul-searching, eventually hitting the road in the inevitable search for answers. As heard in the title track, themes of disillusionment and subsequent realization run through to the album. Examined through the lens of relationships, whether it be the one between her and a lover, a friend, a city, the road, the world, or perhaps most importantly, herself, each experiences helps to shape her developing perspective and worldview. On "All The Boys," she contemplates the cyclical nature of toxic attraction. Funky stand-out "Night Tides" looks at the illusion a person presents in the beginning of a romance, only to reveal their true colors once they've lured you in. She recognizes the pattern of being drawn to a tempting yet toxic muse over and over, but admits it fuels her creatively. While many of the songs revolve around romance, they are juxtaposed with more existential/philosophical tracks like "Ghost" and "Only In America", examining the meaning of life and what plagues her generation of disaffected youth. Arriving January 2018 on Kanine Records, Sleepless Dreamer was produced and engineered by Kenny Woods (formerly of Beck) at the Haas Brothers studio in West Adams, CA. After working together on some covers for Aquarium Drunkard's Lagniappe Sessions series last summer, Charles knew Woods was the right person to collaborate with on her full-length album. Enlisting an all-star band of friends, the album features the work of Father John Misty's Chris Dixie Darley (guitar), Dan Bailey (drums), Eli Thompson (bass), and David Vandervelde (guitar), Darian Zahedi (guitar) of CRX, Connor "Catfish" Gallaher (pedal steel) of Calexico, Drew Erickson (keys) of Roger Waters, and Maxim Ludwig (guitar). Additional writing collaborators include Stephen McBean (Black Mountain), Jonathan Rice, Jonathan Tyler (Nikki Lane), Carrick Moore-Gerety, and Brian Harding. Charles has been playing music since she was five years old. At 18, she formed country duo The Driftwood Singers with Christian Lee Hutson, singing and playing guitar and autoharp. At 22, she joined garage rock band The Blank Tapes as drummer. After two fun-filled years immersed in the rock and roll lifestyle, she decided it was time to pursue her own songwriting, and began developing the songs that formed 2015's eponymous debut EP on Burger Records. Her music career has been a chronological progression from old time music to 60's garage and psychedelia, and now more 70's country rock and 80's smooth rock. Drawn to catchy, poppy hooks and choruses, Charles draws on what she loves about each era while developing her unique style as a musician, singer, and songwriter.

John Butler Trio - Brooklyn Bowl
July 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Man in the Mirror The contradictions in John Butler are evident, and, despite his magnificently successful career (with number one albums in Australia and sell-out tours) his is a troubled soul. One of the most successful recording artists Australia has ever produced and a musician whose reputation has begun to rock the waters of both Europe and America, Butler is nevertheless a man on the edge, poised like a beautiful suicide. Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear. An independent role model, founder of Australia's Jarrah Records, family man and proud skateboard aficionado, JB, in spite of his matey public persona, remains an enigma. He is from everywhere and nowhere, an Australian/American, Everyman/Nowhere Man, and his music mixes rootedness and rootlessness, pain and celebration in a way that is utterly beguiling. He is the consummate rebel-refugee whose songs chart disenchantment with the corporate world and show a yearning for truth along with an ongoing struggle for a sense of locus. The songs' off-centre grooves have always been their charm, and yet now there is a sense, in the new album at least, of resolution and peace after years of being against the world and what it offered. Maybe the man on the brink will not jump after all?

Late Slip, Screamin' Rebel Angels, Julez, Moon City Masters - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
July 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

Screamin' Rebel Angels are a Rock 'n Roll foursome hailing from Brooklyn, NY, fronted by the dynamic soul-shouting, blues beltin', sweet purring of vocalist / guitarist Laura Rebel Angel, paired with the blistering, stratospheric lead guitar of Brian "Bobo" Hack. Their head-turning, jaw-dropping performances are untamed adventures that invoke the primitive energy of early Rock 'n Roll and Rockabilly, and emotion of 1950s Rhythm & Blues and Soul. Those new to the band are stunned by the power and energy of the group, as if witnessing the resurrection of rock and roll, stirring within them the raw, primitive passions which first electrified audiences at the genre's inception. They are a force that has been igniting a musical blaze around the worldwide roots rock 'n roll scene, and gaining a momentum that is cementing their unmistakable sound and authenticity -which is pure Rock 'n Roll Revival.

Katie Herzig: Moment of Bliss Tour - The Bowery Ballroom
July 11, 2018 - New York

To put Katie Herzig in any sort of box is for it to be broken, as she continues to outdo herself with each new release. Her music is as intimate as it is epic - something that her fans have come to expect. Herzig grew up in Colorado and found her way to Nashville upon starting her solo career in 2006. Fresh off the 2018 release of her 6th album, Moment of Bliss, Herzig tours the US this summer for the first time in 4 years on her highly-anticipated Moment of Bliss Tour. Herzig has performed at Bonnaroo, on VH1, toured extensively both as a headliner and as support for artists such as Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, The Fray, and as a member of 10 out of Tenn. She has had her music licensed for many film, TV, and commercial uses including over 10 songs on Grey's Anatomy. Her song "Free My Mind" reached top 20 on AAA radio which led to a collaboration with RAC on their song "We Belong," earning a lot of love from LA's KCRW and the like and a remix of the song by Odesza. Herzig has always been very hands on in the production of her own music which has led to opportunities to co-write and produce music for other artists as well, including Ingrid Michaelson's platinum-selling single "Girls Chase Boys." ASCAP awarded Katie the Sammy Cahn Award for her song "Closest I Get." In 2017 Katie was nominated for an Emmy for her song "Morse Code" written for Netflix's The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. An eclectic career for an artist who has always relied on her own instincts to consistently release music that goes deep and asks you to feel something at every turn.

Tomi - Mercury Lounge
July 11, 2018 - New York

My name is TOMI and I've been making music for 15 years. I grew up listening to rock and disco and going to see Bruce Springsteen perform (13 times so far) with my dad. As a kid, I kept my guitar playing a secret – no girls I knew played guitar. In high school I started playing open mics and going to shows in Northampton and at The Webster in Hartford, where I sought out female folk singers who made me think a girl playing guitar was no big deal. When I finally got to book a show at The Webster myself, the sound guy heard me and asked me if I wanted to open for bigger acts, so I started playing there every month. For the first time, I was performing my own music in front of total strangers. After two years of college, I dropped out and moved to New York. In New York, I got a day job as a receptionist at an investment bank and played shows and rehearsed at night with my band. For two and a half years, I dreamed of quitting to focus on music, which everyone at the office thought was a "cute" distraction, until finally, I got fired. In the last month that I was at the job I wrote "Carry You." I was starting to realize that I needed to focus on my music and develop my own voice, and the band wasn't really doing it for me anymore. I needed an outlet that was private and all mine. "Carry You" came out organically; everything kind of aligned. It made sense. It was actually one of the first songs that I had composed where I never wrote down a word. That's what TOMI is. I don't have to write it down; it's amplifying a feeling in the moment. I was also realizing at the time that the relationship I was in was not what I wanted, which was confusing because we were both pretty sure we liked each other. I always call it my first "mature" breakup. This song is about trusting your instincts. The epiphany doesn't have to come with a negative revelation about yourself. It can just be what you feel and trust to be true.

My Marlene - Dixon Place
July 11, 2018 - New York

War has returned to Europe and the Middle East, Paris has been bombed, a flood of refugees surges westward and Trump puts a ban on immigrants. Through the lens of recent events, My Marlene hits home, now more than ever. The play is a an immersive and confessional theatre experience in which the audience is transformed into the battle-hardened soldiers that Marlene Dietrich entertained during the closing years of World World II. With imagery evoking German Expressionism and the dynamic days of the birth of Cinema, it tells the story of Marlene's life and times. The period songs, with their acidic, cynical tone, so characteristic of that Weimar Decadence, serve to highlight Marlene's status as an erotic pioneer with her gender ambiguity. Here on the front lines, Marlene unveils her contradicting faces: selfless war hero, tyrannical mother, unrestrained lover, and insatiable romantic. Interspersed with her songs, private letters and films, My Marlene seduces the audience while bombs fall all around.

July 11, 2018 - Brooklyn

This screening takes place in our Main Ballroom! Seating is first come first served. RSVP is not required and does not guarantee entry. Royal Tenenbaum and his wife Etheline had three children and then they separated. All three children are extraordinary — all geniuses. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. Most of this was generally considered to be their father's fault. "The Royal Tenenbaums" is the story of the family's sudden, unexpected reunion one recent winter. Restaurant and bar open before, during and after the movie! Minors 17 and under must be accompanied by parent or guardian 21+.

Roots Nyc | Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge & Special Guest Appearance - Cielo
July 11, 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.

Astrology and Divination Across Cultures - Rubin Museum of Art
July 11, 2018 - New York

The common principle among astrology and divination is time: astrology is the art and science of integrating our past, present, and future, while divination techniques can help us make better decisions about what lies ahead. When we understand symbols and use practices and rituals, such as mandalas and meditation, we can expand our consciousness and increase clarity around our aspirations. Explore astrology and divination across cultures with astrologer and author A.T. Mann. In this talk, which opens a summer series on astrology, A.T. Mann will guide us in such mantic arts as tarot, the I Ching, and more. He will perform an onstage tarot reading with a volunteer from the audience using his Mandala Astrological Tarot deck, and introduce us to a dynamic new approach called Life Time Astrology, which visualizes connections between the solar system and our DNA. The program will be followed by a book signing with A.T. Mann.

Under the Influence of the Maysles Brothers - Museum of the City of New York
July 11, 2018 - New York

It has become the stuff of retro consumerism and "Mad Men" shtick, but in the mid-sixties New York City was the cultural capital of the United States, and David and Albert Maysles were among its chief chroniclers. From a radical Yoko Ono performance at Carnegie Hall to a portrait of an ascendant IBM's upstate headquarters, after having just decamped from their Madison Avenue office, to a drop-in visit with Truman Capote at his Long Island retreat, and an indelible encounter with Marlon Brando in a Midtown hotel room, these short documents capture both the official history and something else, the unguarded moments and unscripted gestures that are the true warp and woof of a historical scene.

HIRIE - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
July 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

Hirie­­ -- the frontwoman of the exhilarating reggae band HIRIE­­ -- grew up a global citizen. Her father worked for the United Nations and she was born in the Philippines, spent years in Italy, before her family settled in Hawaii, which became her spiritual home. While in Hawaii, Hirie fell in love with reggae music, and took to the culture naturally. On the radio, and in conversation, she would hear the exclamation "iris." The popular reggae term is derived from a Jamaican patois, and it encompasses warmth and positivity -- it's a greeting, an affectionate term of approval, and a mindset. In these painfully complex times, we could all use some irie in our life. San Diego's seven­-piece band HIRIE is ready to offer a global spiritual uplift. Melding the balmy island touches of its singer's beloved home -- as symbolized by its moniker's first letter, a "H" for "Hawaii," with that feeling of irie, the award­-winning group offers a soundtrack of hope. Now, with its masterful new album, Wandering Soul, brimming with invigorating female-­fronted shamanistic reggae an oasis of positivity is just an album away. "Hirie is a lifestyle choice, it's about healing the body, the mind, and the spirit. Our fans and our band are always saying 'let's get HIRIE,' it's a way to detach from the painful complexities of the world, and bask in joyous energy," says the band's lead singer and sage who has taken the band's namesake for her own. HIRIE is poppy and purposeful, harnessing the power of accessible songcraft, social consciousness, world class musicianship, and the disarming and spellbinding qualities of reggae, the band exudes mainstream appeal without diluting its artistic vision. HIRIE is Hirie lead vocals, guitar, uke; Chris Hampton saxophone, flute, melodica, and accordion; Andrew McKee trombone, guitar, didgeridoo, and percussion; Andy Flores bass; Blaine Dillinger lead guitar; and Joey Muraoka on drums.

Grateful Shred - The Capitol Theatre
July 12, 2018 - Port Chester

Wait. I know what you're thinking. Another fucking Grateful Dead cover band? Really? The thing is, Los Angeles-based Grateful Shred manage to channel that elusive Dead vibe: wide-open guitar tones, effortless three-part vocal harmonies, choogling beats, and yes, plenty of tripped out, Shredded solos. The look, the sound, the atmosphere. It's uncanny. "It's more of a 'take' on the Dead than a tribute band," says bassist Dan Horne. "We end up sounding almost more like the Dead because we approach it in this free-spirited way; in other bands, they've got the perfect tones dialed in, they practice the drum parts, they've got their 'Jerry.' We just play." Founded one night in 2016, the band came about almost by accident. Singer/guitarist Austin McCutchen had a residency at The Griffin in Atwater Village; his band was out of town, so he drafted some friends to play a set of Dead covers, and the four founding members (Austin, Sam, Clay, and Dan) have been together ever since. Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch (of country-folk revivalists Mapache) handle vocal and guitar duties, rounded out by bassist Dan Horne (of Cass McCombs, Jonathan Wilson, and the estimable Circles Around The Sun, who provided the incidental music for 2015's "Fare Thee Well" concerts, the last shows played by the living members of the Dead). Add a rotating cast of drummers (like Richard Gowen of The Growlers) and keyboardists (like Lee Pardini of Dawes and Jerry Borge? of Ziggy Marley), and you've got the essential formula. Jams convene at Liberty Hair Farm in Echo Park, the Shred's HQ/commune/studio. It's at the Farm where they live, breathe, and record. Just watch the hallucinatory footage of the band tearing through "St. Stephen" (filmed live in their backyard) or "Shakedown Street" (those harmonies!). Grateful Shred is the sound of 5+ guys who aren't afraid to learn from the masters, but who know to explore beyond the pale, searching for the sound. "Never the play the same thing once," as Phil Lesh says. Far from being a historical re-enactment, Grateful Shred's laissez faire vibe infuses the band with a gentle spirit, warmth, and (dare we say it) authenticity. From their killer merch game (look for a new line with Dead revisionists Online Ceramics) to their eminently watchable YouTube channel, they're clearly having a rad time and spreading the love. Strangely enough, in a world overflowing with wax museum nostalgia and Deadly sentimentalism, we need the Shred, now more than ever.

Collective Imaginings: Legacies of the Black Audio Film Collective - New Museum
July 12, 2018 - New York

In 1983, Black Audio Film Collective emerged in the British art scene with their first slide-tape films, Expeditions 1: Signs of Empire and Expeditions 2: Images of Nationality, which traced the formation of black British subjectivity borne by diasporic journey. Over the next fifteen years, Black Audio Film Collective's lyrical, essayistic films would bring together archival footage and draw upon the work of postcolonial writers, feminist intellectuals, and queer theorists—Stuart Hall, Paul Gilroy, Homi Bhabha, Gail Lewis, Femi Otitoju, and George Shire, among others—to reckon with radically shifting social and political conditions in Britain and the US. Their subjects are familiar today: their films confront racism and power, increasing economic disparity, and the relationship between migration and rampant xenophobia. Collective Imaginings: Legacies of the Black Audio Film Collective is a panel discussion with participants Coco Fusco, Tobi Haslett, Kara Keeling, and moderator Ashley Clark. The discussion will explore the importance of returning to Black Audio Film Collective's work in our current political and cultural moment—not only in terms of their radical approach to documentary film, but also their broader commitment to supporting new voices of color in video production by organizing workshops, roundtable dialogues, and public forums.

David Blaine - Kings Theater
July 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

David Blaine is the greatest magician who ever lived." Howard Stern made that on-air proclamation, a sentiment echoed by Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller, who referred to Blaine's Street Magic as "the best TV magic special ever done." Blaine was just twenty- three when Street Magic first aired on ABC, transforming televised magic by turning the camera on the audience. Spectators at home could feel the visceral reaction of people being astonished. The New York Times went on to declare that Blaine had "taken a craft that's been around for hundreds of years and done something unique and fresh with it," while The New Yorker prominently stated "he saved magic."

Since the profoundly successful release of 151a two years ago, Kishi Bashi has toured relentlessly, captivating audiences across the globe with his loop-based live show, and fostering a groundswell of devotees. 151a was crafted over a four-year period while Kishi Bashi, the pseudonym for artist K. Ishibashi, was touring and recording with Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal (where he was a full-time member and co-producer). In late 2012, after the success of 151a, Kishi Bashi decided to focus solely on his own music and began composing the new material, which led to the songs that are featured on Light.

Through July 12, 2018 - New York

With vocalist Claudia Acuña. "Claudia sings in the tradition of the great ones. Her sound is her own." – Abbey Lincoln Singer-songwriter Claudia Acuña sings primarily in Spanish, but her soulful, crooning alto transcends any language with its powerful sense of freedom and heartfelt emotion. Born in Santiago, Chile, Acuña has built a flourishing career in New York City since moving here in 1995, and she's now on jazz giant Branford Marsalis' label, Marsalis Music. Acuña wasn't well known when she moved here, but, like many aspiring jazz musicians who arrive in New York, she strove to immerse herself in the music, meet fellow musicians at the clubs, and take advantage of the city's unique opportunities to learn from the greats. "I had the amazing blessing to meet one of my idols, which was Abbey Lincoln," she told the New York City Jazz Record a few years ago. "She really opened her world to me. She had a lot of stories and experiences and thoughts. Just to be in her presence was a master class." Acuña has been a regular favorite at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, and tonight's performance will be a tribute to the iconic vocalist who made such an impression on Acuña as she found her path to success.

Bryan Callen - Gotham Comedy Club
July 12, 2018 - New York

Featuring Rich Aronovitch and Dov Davidoff! Bryan Callen: Bryan Callen is an actor, comic and podcaster. He's currently in the middle of his fourth season as "Coach Mellor" on ABC's THE GOLDBERG'S. He's also the co host of the popular podcast THE FIGHTER & THE KID. In addition to performing in comedy clubs and theaters all over the U.S and Canada, he's preparing for the release of his latest one hour special called NEVER GROW UP. In 1995 Bryan became an original cast member of MAD TV and went on to do many TV shows like Entourage, Sex & and CIty and Californication. He also played "Eddie" in The Hangover and "Samir" in The Hangover part 2. Since Hollywood is a place where your last job has nothing to do with getting any future jobs, there's little point in going through his whole resumé. Not to mention the fact that Bryan is actually writing this bio so it feels a tad obnoxious. The important thing Bryan wants you to know is that he has never been better than he is RIGHT NOW! It's also worth mentioning that Bryan likes to box, and play tennis. He is not good enough to compete at either sport, but he enjoys telling people that his boxing and tennis are "high level". Thank you.

HIRIE, The Far East, Brother Jerome - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
July 12, 2018 - Brooklyn

Hirie­­ -- the frontwoman of the exhilarating reggae band HIRIE­­ -- grew up a global citizen. Her father worked for the United Nations and she was born in the Philippines, spent years in Italy, before her family settled in Hawaii, which became her spiritual home. While in Hawaii, Hirie fell in love with reggae music, and took to the culture naturally. On the radio, and in conversation, she would hear the exclamation "iris." The popular reggae term is derived from a Jamaican patois, and it encompasses warmth and positivity -- it's a greeting, an affectionate term of approval, and a mindset. In these painfully complex times, we could all use some irie in our life. San Diego's seven­-piece band HIRIE is ready to offer a global spiritual uplift. Melding the balmy island touches of its singer's beloved home -- as symbolized by its moniker's first letter, a "H" for "Hawaii," with that feeling of irie, the award­-winning group offers a soundtrack of hope. Now, with its masterful new album, Wandering Soul, brimming with invigorating female-­fronted shamanistic reggae an oasis of positivity is just an album away. "Hirie is a lifestyle choice, it's about healing the body, the mind, and the spirit. Our fans and our band are always saying 'let's get HIRIE,' it's a way to detach from the painful complexities of the world, and bask in joyous energy," says the band's lead singer and sage who has taken the band's namesake for her own. HIRIE is poppy and purposeful, harnessing the power of accessible songcraft, social consciousness, world class musicianship, and the disarming and spellbinding qualities of reggae, the band exudes mainstream appeal without diluting its artistic vision. HIRIE is Hirie lead vocals, guitar, uke; Chris Hampton saxophone, flute, melodica, and accordion; Andrew McKee trombone, guitar, didgeridoo, and percussion; Andy Flores bass; Blaine Dillinger lead guitar; and Joey Muraoka on drums.

Ume, The Vandelles - Mercury Lounge
July 13, 2018 - New York

"Ume immediately won me over with their raucous bursts of guitar-driven art rock, with front woman Lauren Larson threatening to take the whole thing off the rails with the abuse of her guitar strings. Still, underneath this Ume possesses an air of intelligence and depth rare in a genre known primarily for its copious drug use. When it comes to art, psychedelia, and rock and roll, it doesn't get much better." —Village Voice "There are a few bands out there that are actually better than the hype, and Austin's Ume is one of them… as long as bands like Ume exist, I'm going to scoff every single time some publicist tells me about some mope-core band that's "killing it."—Antiquiet "Distortion-heavy jams (and the whole marriage thing) invite comparisons to Sonic Youth, but Ume do more headbanging and wailing." —Rolling Stone. The Vandelles are rock n' roll noir at its finest. Their songs are the perfect soundtrack to rain-slicked city streets at night, and the lust, betrayal and violence that filters through them. The band thrives on layers of fuzz and a wall of reverb-laden guitar noise, and they also harbor a penchant for 60s garage pop melody and surf rock riffs. Those expecting the Vandelles to sound like their Brooklyn contemporaries Vivian Girls or Crystal Stilts would be wrong—they channel a dirtier, scuzzier aesthetic more on par with the Cramps, Suicide, X, or even Link Wray. On the new release, Del Black Aloha, songs like "Lovely Weather" and "Dash N' Dive" find the band's ragged riffs, crooned vocals and crushing, dread-inducing pedal manipulations forming a perfectly sinister sound that both terrifies and transfixes the listener. Definitely not recommended for those who suffer from anxiety, late-night panic attacks, or criminal thoughts. - Bill Dvorak

Drinkwater on backing vocals, synths, and vocoder, and The Duke of Pannekoenen (Kasson Crooker) on programming. Freezepop's song Science Genius Girl was featured in the PlayStation 2 game Frequency and their song Super-Sprøde was featured in the game's sequel, Amplitude. Freezepop won Best New Band in 2001 at the American Synthpop Awards and Best US Band in 2002. The Duke of Pannekoeken was previously know as The Duke of Candied Apples and before that the Duke of Belgian Waffles. He is also the man behind Symbion Project and was a member of the alternative rock group Splashdown. In early June 2009, The Duke announced he was leaving the band. The Other Sean T. Drinkwater is a clone of the original who was too busy with his first synthpop group Lifestyle (3), his solo work as Karacter, and his heavy metal group Godclaw. In addition to singing, Liz Enthusiasm designs the art for the band's albums, designed their website and the website of Sean's other band Lifestyle, and has animated music videos for some of their songs.

Rayland Baxter - The Bowery Ballroom
July 13, 2018 - New York

Thoreau had Walden Pond. Kerouac had Big Sur. Rayland Baxter? He had an old rubber band factory in Franklin, Kentucky, and it suited him just fine. As one of the hardest-touring artists on the road today, Baxter's spent most of his professional life in transit, but ever since he was a kid, he dreamed of creative seclusion someplace lonely and isolated, somewhere he could sit still and devote his every waking hour to writing without interruption or distraction. When the opportunity finally presented itself in late 2016, the Nashville native pounced. "I packed everything in my van and moved to Franklin for three months," says Baxter. "It was the fist time I ever got to be alone and focus solely on songs like that. All I did was write, write, write all day every day. I was obsessed." By the time Baxter emerged, he'd penned more than 50 tunes and crafted a detailed blueprint for his spectacular new album, 'Wide Awake.' Deftly produced by Butch Walker, the record infuses Baxter's easygoing, soulful sound with British Invasion melodies and rock and roll swagger, marrying lean, muscular songwriting with adventurous, inventive arrangements. It's a cutting, insightful collection, one that takes a sardonic view the violence, greed, and division that seem to define the modern American landscape. Rather than point a finger, though, the music holds up a mirror, offering a sober reflection of the times thoughtfully bundled in bright, infectious hooks. There's no judgment here, only keen observation, and Baxter implicates himself as much as his neighbor through it all. "This is an album about decision making," he explains. "It's about being a human at the crossroads.

Elysia Crampton - National Sawdust
July 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Elysia Crampton is a Native American musician & writer currently living in the United States. Elysia Crampton's eclectic and unrestrained electronic music is the flashpoint of a myriad of influences opening upon the complexity and multifacetedness of Aymara becoming. Underscored by radical and queer politics, Crampton's experimental work gives sonorous form to contemporary expressions of Aymara resistance and survival: a project of "becoming-with," in the shades given this term by Donna Haraway via prison abolitionist Che Gossett. Crampton's first record, The Light That You Gave Me To See You, released in 2012 under the Moniker E+E (a play on the spanish phonetics for "And & And"), is considered one of the most influential electronic records from the last decade. Together with like-minded friends like Seychelle OD Allah, Chino Amobi & Ashland Mines (DJ Total Freedom), her release helped form the horizon of a new era in electronic music, a style that Adam Harper called "Epic Collage"— a reference to Allah & Amobi's painting style (both frequent collaborators with Crampton & Mines)— in 2014. In 2015, Elysia Crampton debuted her first record under her own name, titled American Drift (featuring tracks from an originally much larger & unreleased double LP spanning 2011-2013, featuring the voice acting of Seychelle "Money" Allah, partially reapportioned into the single Moth/Lake). Though an unfinished vision, the record was released to critical acclaim, with Philip Sherburne of Pitchfork stating that the album "helped define the sound of experimental electronic music in 2015." Her 2016 album Demon City, composed in honor of the revolutionary Bartolina Sisa and Crampton's yungueña grandmother, was deemed a "masterwork" by Rolling Stone and was one of Pitchfork's 20 best experimental albums of 2016. In 2017, Elysia Crampton scored the original soundtrack for Grace Wales Bonner A/W 2017 menswear collection, also participating as a model in the runway show. Crampton would collaborate again with Bonner for her S/S 2018 collection, later holding a two-day performance with Bolivian artist Donna Huanca in the fall of 2017.

Greg Farley - Pete's Candy Store
July 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Greg Farley was born in Highland, NY, a small town on the Hudson River. His dad was a teamster who drove tractor trailers and his mom worked at the A&P. In 2006 he began touring out of his car playing house shows, small bars, and on the street, burning CDs, wrapping them in road maps, stamping GF on the front. From the east coast to California and back, he saw landscapes and cities that most of the people he grew up with never got the chance to see. Upon returning he was lent a fiddle by a good friend, took up learning some old time, and joined The Felice Brothers. He played with them for the next ten years, working other jobs in his down time: He mucked stalls on a horse farm, waited tables at a vegetarian restaurant, worked as a carpenter, arborist, woodworker, and sawmill operator, Through it all, his music was the only constant. Now, striking out on his own with his debut LP Taker Easy , recorded in Stanfordville, NY with producer/engineer Nick Kinsey, he mines his own history for stories of class struggle, nature, love, pain, work, and family, all set against the backdrop of the northeast. End of the day, Farley has nothing to lose and something to say, and he's saying it from the gut.

Once there they find out that the region is poverty-stricken, and all children are untraceable due to missing stones that were once blessed by Bhagwan Shri Shankar. A trip to the local Maharaja’s palace does not reveal the whereabouts of the children, but Indiana locates a hidden underground passage that leads to the human sacrificial venue of Devi Maa Kali. They locate 2 of the 3 missing precious stones, Indiana keeps one, and must be on the run from Mola – who is determined to catch and kill them at any and all cost.

Maggie Koerner, Woolly Mammals - Knitting Factory Brooklyn
July 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

The R'COUP'D label (Ninja Tune) announces the release of the "Dig Down Deep" EP from New Orleans-based singer-songwriter Maggie Koerner on 9th December 2016 alongside a video for its title track. Comprising four tracks, the EP was recorded in four different sessions over two years with a lengthy list of collaborating musicians, including executive production from the face of Fink and R'COUP'D head himself, Fin Greenall. Her relationship with Greenall so too represents a sort of sonic kismet. After meeting a mutual contact in a treehouse in France, Koerner repeatedly emailed demos, caught his attention with EP track "Cayute Woman" and they went on to work together in Berlin, Los Angeles and New Orleans. On Koerner, Greenall says: "Maggie's voice is stunning, her material is honest to the bone, and she is a rare, true, artist. Capable of incredible highs and incredible lows, Maggie and her art are inseparable—and all true artists can relate to that." Koerner's process is markedly patient and relaxed, and reflects her belief that "you don't need a controlled environment to make music"—but that's not to say it's aimless. Title track "Dig Down Deep", released today, reflects Koerner's ethical and musical upbringing which she says taught her to "make music matter." On the track, she expands: "I want music to make people feel again, to ask questions again about what the hell is happening around us." Encouraging the listener to dig down deep, in its myriad interpretations, carries especially significant meaning in the current climate of domestic and global affairs, which in turn contribute to her unique perspective as a songwriter. Other tracks are more whimsical but no less affecting. 'French Fur Traders', another standout, describes a relationship with a former lover who is still kindred. The lyrics poured out of Koerner on the fly one night, recalling her ex's belief that they had known one another in a former life, lived as French fur traders themselves. Koerner is already recognizable on the US tour circuit for her incredible live performances with esteemed, festival-favorite acts. Now stepping out in a more intimate direction—and with Fink producing—her new material is where her voice is given room to slowly smolder, leaving behind a chilled but haunting trace.

Showcasing a more intimate side of her artistry than any previous release, Hilary co-wrote "Without You" with fellow multi-talented New York singing sensation Devin Bing, whom HuffPo has proclaimed as "a total original with the charisma of a 'Golden Age' entertainer." Devin also produced the track and plays the haunting piano that introduces Hilary's narrative of facing the crippling enduring realities of heartbreak and finding the renewed strength to move on in a healthy positive way. Driven by their similar backgrounds (she went to Manhattan School of Music, he to the University of Miami to study music) and a sharply intuitive musical chemistry, Hilary and Devin are currently working on several follow-up singles that they plan to release throughout the winter and spring 2018.

Drivin' N' Cryin' - Hill Country Live
July 13, 2018 - New York

Also Featuring: Eric Ambel Celebrating their 32nd Anniversary together, Atlanta-based folk rock act, Drivin N Cryin, have spent most of 2017 on tour. In October 1985 Drivin N Cryin played their first show at Atlanta's famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for its blistering live shows and amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene. Now, 32 years later and releasing four full length albums on Island Records and one on Geffen Records founding members Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen find themselves enjoying a milestone anniversary for the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineup changes, and miles of backroads and highways to arrive here. With a gold record, 10 full-length albums, and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still refuses to rest. In 2012, a documentary about the band entitled Scarred but Smarter: Life n Times of Drivin' N' Cryin' was produced. In 2015, a collection of 10 choice cuts from the band's 4-EP "Songs" series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashville's Plowboy Records. Additionally, the band was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame the same year. The following year, Drivin N Cryin released a vinyl-only album, entitled Archives Vol One , with a collection of basement recordings from the years 1988 to 1990. With Dave V. Johnson as their drummer and the band's newest member Laur Joamets (originally Sturgill Simpson) now being added to the lineup, Drivin N Cryin is continuing to tour the U.S. to great acclaim. Island Records will be re-releasing their acclaimed record "Mystery Road" through Universal Music Group later this year. Darius Rucker has cut "Straight to Hell" on his new album slated for this October with guest vocals appearances of Luke Bryan, Charles Kelley and Jason Aldean. A quote from the band's lead singer, Kevn Kinney, gives a little insight into what Drivin N Cryin is all about: "We are a band that's like your record collection." Drawing influence from a wide array of musical elements, Drivin N Cryin has developed a unique sound over the years. Their name derives from the eclectic nature of this sound: a little drivin' rock n roll and a little country twang. Comfortable with their past and confident in their future, the band has an arsenal of songs, a full tank of gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon.

Ian Bagg - Levity Live
July 13, 2018 - West Nyack

Ian Bagg started his comedy career in his native country Canada. He proceeded to do all the show business things that every successful Canadian entertainer does. He went to a "Hockey Night in Canada" game on a Saturday night performed at the "Montreal Comedy Festival " kissed a fish in New Foundland and a "Comedy Now" special on CTV. So what does a Canadian do when he has done it all? He boards a train to New York City lives in a youth hostel and ends up on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien " "The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson" and "Tonight Show with Jay Leno." It is not always fun and games. He was forced to do "Make Me Laugh " "Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson " "Fridays" on NBC and the "Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn." His new one-hour special "Ian Bagg: Getting to F*cking Know You" premiered on Showtime in April 2013. Bagg has acted in Tim Robbins' "The Cradle will Rock " "MVP 2 " and "MXP". Fun fact: he's the the only known comic to have worked for famed director/producer Judd Apatow and not become a multi-billionaire. Life has been amazing for Bagg being on such diverse platforms as the History Channel the Food Network the Biography Channel and being the first ever Canadian to meet three US presidents– Ronald Reagan Jimmy Carter and George Bush…although only one was in the White House at the time while he met one on a plane and the other at a hockey practice.

Glass Lamination for Multidimensional Panels - UrbanGlass
Through July 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

In this class, students will construct panels that are multidimensional both in terms of the glass techniques used and in breaking away from a flat plane. Through exploration of fusing, slumping, painting, and simple abrasion methods we'll create a variety of elements to be used in your laminated collages. Using lamination will allow us to overcome limitations set by techniques when they're used on their own. To name a few, we'll be able to layer incompatible glass, to combine flat and 3D parts, and to add painting to glass that could not be fired. Demonstrations, examinations of daily projects, exchange of ideas and observation of each other discoveries will help participants to expand their repertoire of glass working methods, technical solutions, and design possibilities.

Hopesfall End Greyhaven - Saint Vitus Bar
July 13, 2018 - Brooklyn

Trust is key to any successful creative collaboration. It allows an artist to take risk and creates an open dialogue where each member is free to set aside personal ego to work towards a greater common goal. For melodic hardcore legends, Hopesfall, that trust has become second nature over their twenty plus years of friendship and, as a result, their new full-length, Arbiter, continues the band's legacy as pioneers. Hopesfall formed in 1998. Over the next decade, the band would undergo numerous line-up changes but always drew from the same core group of lifelong friends to source new members. The bond between the group was so strong that even after disbanding in 2008, guitarists Joshua Brigham and Dustin Nadler and drummer Adam Morgan continued to get together on Wednesday nights to work on new music despite having no plans to release it. It was during these jam sessions that the music that would eventually find its way onto Arbiter first began to take shape. In 2012, Brigham and Morgan visited frontman, Jay Forrest, in Chicago culminating in the decision that Forrest would add vocals to the demos. The lineup for the band's reformation would then be cemented in August of 2015 when bassist, Chad Waldrup, joined the group to see Hum and Failure. Still, the idea of putting out new music as Hopesfall wasn't part of the plan. With the lineup complete, the band brought their demos to another trusted collaborator - producer Mike Watts (Glassjaw, Dillinger Escape Plan, O'Brother) whom they had worked with on two previous releases, Magnetic North and A Types. It was Watts who brought the demos to Dan Sandshaw and Will Putney of Graphic Nature / Equal Vision Records where the idea of releasing it as a Hopesfall record was finally discussed. A testament to the band's hard-earned legacy, the famed label immediately jumped on the opportunity to release the project.

Guilty Pleasures Cabaret - The Duplex Cabaret Theatre
July 13, 2018 - New York

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

"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.

Radney Foster - Opry City Stage
July 14, 2018 - New York

As a young musician straight out of Texas, Radney Foster spent the lengthy drives in between tour stops reading the likes of John Steinbeck, Larry McMurtry, and Harper Lee. Over 30 years of artist cuts later, there is no question that he himself is an established storyteller. Whether it's navigating the ever-changing music industry or battling a sudden, terrifying illness – Foster definitely has a story to tell. In late Fall 2015, the legendary songwriter got the diagnosis every musician fears– a severe case of pneumonia and laryngitis. However, for someone who's been producing songs for almost 40 years, the desire to write doesn't fade along with the voice. During a grueling six week period of vocal constraint, Foster's creative side emerged in the form of a short story inspired by the song, titled "Sycamore Creek," and the idea for Foster's newest endeavor was born.

Party with Marie Antoinette and her royal court like it's the 1780s and your home is Versailles. Each ticket includes a champagne cocktail and decadent puff pastry from Ladurée, the same french bakery that provided the pastries featured in the film! "A thoroughly modern confection, blending insouciance and sophistication, heartfelt longing and self-conscious posing with the guileless self-assurance of a great pop song." -A.O. Scott Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, Marie Antoinette is an electrifying yet intimate retelling of the turbulent life of history's favorite villainess. Kirsten Dunst portrays the ill-fated child princess who married France's young and indifferent King Louis XVI (Jason Schwartzman). Feeling isolated in a royal court rife with scandal and intrigue, Marie Antoinette defied both royalty and commoners by living like a rock star, filling the void with parties, pastries, and champagne, only further sealing her fate. Dir. Sofia Coppola. 2006. 123 min. Stick around after the film! Redeem your ticket for $2 off any drink at the bar following the screening.

Voice Cult: Come Sing - House of Yes
July 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

Voice Cult: Sing. Connect. Express. Heal. Singing together can be closer than touching. ON the first Saturday of every month at House of Yes, we ask you to travel from near and far, and to bring your voice to us. You have been singing since the beginning of time. We connect, align, vibrate, express, process, remember, forget, wish, apologize, forgive, go into altered states, heal ourselves and each other, flee, find, talk to dead grandfathers, lure each other into love, become our own mothers, and paint the room with iridescence. And frequently we have no idea what the hell we are doing, which is okay too. If you can speak, then you can sing - even if you have only ever croaked out thin ratchety wisps of songs and especially if your mom told you that you were tone-deaf in the fourth grade. If you are a great singer, come because you love singing, the more the merrier. We perform vocal healing rituals. We sing through the colors of the rainbow. We sing in circles. We sing on the floor. We sing for aerialists flying through the sky. We hug our own shadows while singing Soundgarten. We are irreverent and we like to try new things. What will we sound like together? Let's feel things. Singing together can be closer than touching. We are a cult dedicated to the truthgasmic song of our own souls.

Railway Post Office Dog Day - Danbury Railway Museum
July 14, 2018 - Danbury

A celebration honoring the legacy of Owney, the Railway Post Office dog. A centerpiece of the day will be the museum’s fully-restored Pennsylvania Railroad circa-1910 Railway Post Office (RPO) car where a US Postal Service representative will sell stamps and cancel envelopes with a special one-day “Owney Day” pictorial postmark. The event includes a train ride, access to all activities, a free Owney-cacheted envelope, and a free hot dog.

Owney was a stray dog who found his way into the Albany, NY post office in 1888 and was soon adopted by the Railway Mail Service clerks and became the mascot of this elite government service. He traveled throughout the state, and then all over the country, in the RPO cars, eventually venturing around the world as a U.S. Post Office Department “emissary” in 1895. In 2011, the U.S. Postal Service issued a postage stamp to honor him. Owney has been preserved and is on display at the National Postal Museum in Washington, DC. Visitors to the Danbury Railway Museum on the 14th will hear the true story of Owney, the mascot of the U.S. Railway Mail Service, and can tour the lovingly-restored RPO car. The “Railyard Local” – a short train ride in a 1920's passenger coach or a caboose pulled by one of the museum’s vintage locomotives – will take visitors through the historic rail yard and past over 70 vintage railroad cars and locomotives, including a Boston & Maine steam locomotive built in 1907. Riders will have an opportunity to see the historic turntable — currently undergoing a major restoration — and get a tour of the steam-era water tower pump house.

It peaked at #51 on The Billboard 200 while the first single, "Blood And Roses", hit #14 on The Mainstream Rock Tracks and the follow-up, "Behind The Wall Of Sleep", reached the #23 spot on the same chart.

Music legend Neil Young will take to the stage for a special live performance to raise awareness and funds for The Bridge School, which he co-founded and has supported for over 30 years. The Bridge School was started by Pegi Young, Jim Forderer, and speech and language pathologist, Dr. Marilyn Buzolich. Pegi Young and Neil Young were inspired to start the school after they were unable to find a suitable school placement for their non-verbal son, Ben Young, who has cerebral palsy. Since its inception, The Bridge School has been a leader in ensuring that children with severe speech and physical impairments are able to achieve full participation in their communities through augmentative and alternative communication and has developed unique programs and trained highly skilled professionals in the use of state of the art assistive technology. “In addition to being a music icon,” said Dr. Vicki Casella, executive director of The Bridge School. “Neil Young’s legacy will include The Bridge School. With his strong support, The Bridge School has enabled children around the world to be active participants in their society by providing access to education and communication and empowered a global network of research and development in alternative and augmentative communication that we look forward to celebrating and expanding upon with the Heart of Gold Gala on July 14.” The Heart of Gold Gala will begin with a red-carpet cocktail reception and will continue with dinner, followed by Neil Young’s performance. The evening will also include a live auction featuring coveted items such as autographed guitars and signed Steinway piano, high-end experiences including an exclusive tour of the Tesla factory, and more. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, The Bridge School is a research and development epicenter for alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) and education for children. The sharing of The Bridge School’s cutting-edge approach to education and communication has resulted in breakthroughs around the globe. With hundreds of conferences across six continents, The Bridge School has trained over 2,300 teachers and therapists, and provided over 10,000 hours of specialized instruction, seminars and lectures. From Mexico to South Korea, the graduates of The Bridge School’s International Teacher-in-Residence program have successfully implemented innovative educational frameworks and, in some instances, affected government policy impacting tens of thousands of children and adults. For ticket information, please visit: bridgeschool.org/support/gala/ or contact Adrian at adrian@supporttaskforce.com. All proceeds from The Heart of Gold Gala directly benefit the operations of The Bridge School. # # # ABOUT THE BRIDGE SCHOOL The Bridge School is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that individuals with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative & alternative means of communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) applications and through the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative life-long educational strategies.

Clint Michigan SIR Little Cobweb - Union Hall
July 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

At first listen, Clint Michigan's beautiful, sanguine Centuries sounds like a document of reckoning, a 9 track mediation that takes stock of certain realities—both personal and universal—that feel particularly pervasive in the cultural ether right now. Given the steady, assured nature of tracks like "Knickerbocker Street" and "Steven Says", one might never guess that the record is, in many ways, a snapshot of chaos—a record made by an artist who traveled through the looking glass of a crippling addiction and managed to somehow come out the other side. The longtime project of NYC musician Clint Asay, Clint Michigan is a project with roots spanning back nearly a decade. However, in the years since the release of his last proper album, 2009's Hawthorne to Hennepin, the project stalled as Asay's life rapidly unraveled. "I had struggled with sobriety for years, but it eventually got completely out of control," recalls Asay. "Long story short, I couldn't function, I couldn't keep a job, and I lost contact with literally everyone. It seemed impossible that I'd ever do anything again, let alone make music."

The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter. 1984. Directed by Lau Kar-leung - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
July 14, 2018 - New York

1984. Hong Kong. Directed by Lau Kar-leung. With Gordon Liu Chia-hui, Kara Wai, Fu Sheng, Lau Kar-leung. DCP. In Cantonese; English subtitles. 97 min. 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.

America 2018 - Paramount Hudson Valley Theater
July 14, 2018 - Peekskil

Their best-known tunes, which also include “I Need You”, “Ventura Highway”, “Don’t Cross the River”, “Tin Man”, “Lonely People”, and “Sister Golden Hair” were cornerstones of the 1970’s Top 40 and FM rock radio. Yet beyond their impressive catalog of hits, listeners would discover there was always much more to America than surface perceptions. The combination of Gerry Beckley’s melodic pop rock and Dewey Bunnell’s use of folk-jazz elements, slinky Latin-leaning rhythms and impressionistic lyric imagery contrasted well with Dan Peek’s more traditional country-rock leanings and highly personal lyrics.

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.

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.

The collaboration sees the entirety of Erasure's latest album, World Be Gone, given a post-classical rework. World Beyond was recorded over ten days by Andy Bell and seven performers from Echo Collective: Margaret Hermant (violin, harp), Neil Leiter (viola), Thomas Engelen (cello), Jaroslaw Mroz (double bass), Gary De Cart (piano) and Antoine Dandoy (vibraphone, glockenspiel). The album was produced by Echo Collective, mixed by Gareth Jones and arranged by Echo Collective's Gary De Cart, Margaret Hermant and Neil Leiter. Neil Leiter from Echo Collective explains, "The process of this project was really deconstruction and re-purposing. We started by listening to each track layer by layer, and then, using the layers that inspired us or we found essential, we reconstructed the tracks instrumentally. Each of the instruments in the band setup were chosen for their inherent capacities and roles. Often choosing which layer to put with each instrument was a question of matching roles and colors. By stripping so much away, we were able to find a new space for Andy to fill. The text of the songs became much more important in the overall construction of the songs, and Andy was free to explore more dynamics and vocal range." The tracks featured on World Beyond show award-winning songwriters Vince Clarke and Andy Bell in a more reflective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination. This new collaboration gives a new dimension to the tracks – including fan-favorites "Still It's Not Over", which tackles the LGBT rights movement post-Stonewall, and "Lousy Some Of Nothing", a ballad for our post-truth age – but the band's optimism about the future remains clear and bright. Andy Bell explains: "…the reinterpretations have brought such enormous context to the songs, it has created a new place for them." The original idea for the album developed from Vince Clarke, who initially suggested that a single from World Be Gone could be given an orchestral reinterpretation, but as the idea expanded and took shape, he spoke at length to Echo Collective ahead of the recording. "It was great to talk through ideas with Echo Collective and then see how their arrangements took shape. The collaboration has given elements of the album a whole new feel and Andy's vocals remain as powerful and uplifting as ever," says Clarke. The collaboration is a natural progression from 1987's The Two Ring Circus, a companion EP for the band's second album, The Circus, which included several orchestral interpretations.

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.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through July 16, 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.

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.

The presentation pays tribute to the more than 700 works of art she has funded over the past half century. These gifts have come steadily and reliably during her decades of service as a key member of several departmental acquisition committees and her tenure as the Museum's President from 1991 to 2002.

Crime and the Kehillah: Accusation and Response - Museum at Eldridge Street
Through July 23, 2018 - New York

In 1906, New York City Police Commissioner Theodore Bingham asserted that half the city's criminals were Jews. Although a widespread backlash forced Bingham to issue a retraction, Bingham's message was loud and clear. New York's Jewish population was considered a menace to more "polite" (aka "native") society. In response, city residents formed the New York Kehilla, or "Community." It was an attempt to organize communal activities under a single umbrella and present a united, productive group of Jewish New Yorkers and Americans. How was this unified front perceived? Were they successful? Using primary documents to spark discussion, this class will examine the successes and challenges of the Kehilla.

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.

Providing insight on the binary of nature and culture, the artists in The Figure and Unknown Places dismantle presumed categories and imagine new worlds.

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

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.

The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to reunite Artistic Director Max Hunter and Resident Artist Christina Toth in presenting The Blue Room, bringing the company’s visual and abstracted aesthetic to create a multimedia immersion of light, sound, movement, and performance. The Bridge is transforming The WhiteBox Gallery on the Lower East Side, creating an immersive visual art instillation that will house performance salons – only forty audience members per performance!

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.

Through July 31, 2018 - Brooklyn

She perceives art as a point of contact, negotiation, and entry to imagine beyond a conditioned reality. Her current project revolves around reclaiming thinking subjectivities, a transmission of bodily and nonverbal knowledge, and a re-distribution of sensory experiences. From 2015–16, she received a research fellowship from the Japan Foundation Asia Center to conduct fieldwork about practices of art writing in Indonesia, Philippines, and Japan. Last year, she initiated a collaborative project titled "To Whom It May Concern"; started as a laboratory exhibition at Bangkok CityCity Gallery, the project has now developed into a Thai-English online platform for collective learning.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Vivek Shraya: Trisha - Ace Hotel
Through September 01, 2018 - New York

Ace Hotel New York and John Chaich are proud to present Vivek Shraya: Trisha, a captivating photo series in which the artist occupies spaces and wears outfits to recreate photographs of her mother from the 1970s when she was a single woman recently immigrated to Canada. The concept was born from a desire to document striking physical similarities Shraya first began to notice while transitioning. Chaich notes that Vivek's imperfect recreations remind viewers that "queer people create our gender presentations with what's available to us, wherever we are." The collection's juxtaposition of new and source images creates a dialogue across time, genealogy and gender. Canada's Vivek Shraya is a queer-identifying artist whose body of work spans photography, albums, films and books. Her 2017 album with Queer Songbook Orchestra, Part-Time Woman, was included in CBC's Best Canadian Albums of 2017; her first book of poetry, even this page is white, won a 2017 Publisher Triangle Award and was longlisted for CBC's Canada Reads and her debut novel, She of the Mountains, was named one of The Globe and Mail's Best Books. The founder of the publishing imprint VS. Books and a four-time Lambda Literary Award finalist, Vivek was a 2016 Pride Toronto Grand Marshal, has received honors from the Toronto Arts Foundation and The Writers' Trust of Canada, and is currently an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Calgary. A reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday July 12 at 7pm. On view through August 31. Creative direction: Vivek Shraya; Artwork and photography: Karen Campos Castillo; Makeup: Alanna Chelmick; Hair: Fabio Persico; Clothing in 4, 5 & 8: M.

Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms - New York Historical Society
Through September 02, 2018 - Upper West Side

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    For Kids: A Closer Look: Georgia O'Keeffe and Hawai'I - The New York Botanical Garden

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

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

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

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

    Through November 23, 2018 - Setauket-East Setauket

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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