Michael Blake Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
August 01, 2018 - New York

Saxophonist/composer Michael Blake has managed to embrace jazz history while challenging it head on. Honing his skills in John Lurie's iconic downtown band the Lounge Lizards, his presence as a jazz artist has earned him accolades in countless jazz publications - including jazz artist of the year in Downbeat's Rising Star category. His first album was produced by the legendary Teo Macero and hailed as a masterpiece. He has since produced another 10 CDs as a leader. Michael is based in Brooklyn but also keeps a foot in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada where he records for Songlines Records. He has written for TV and film and can be heard on the popular kids show theme 'The Backyardigans'. Michael will release his latest CD in fall 2012 on Songlines Records entitled "In the Grand Scheme of Things".

Dan Pratt Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
August 01, 2018 - New York

Saxophonist and composer Dan Pratt has been favored as "a powerful player" by Jazz Times, with the Birmingham Times elaborating that, "his style puts him above the rest, as he has a driving force that is unrivaled." The PA Daily News added, "Pratt is an impressive tenor sax man. Seriously, Pratt's got energy to blow buildings down with his horn and a style that's so elastic he can wrap it all back up together again when he's done." As a composer, Dan has been called "gifted," whose compositions have been cited as being "mind blowing" (Birmingham Times), and "a true home run power hitter" (All Music Guide) whose "writing for a band is its principal asset." (Master of a Small House) Following two critically-acclaimed organ group outings, Dan heads in a new direction on Hymn for the Happy Man, his fourth recording overall and debut for his own Same Island Music imprint. The California native and longtime Brooklyn resident had never recorded a piano/bass/drums quartet record before, and he felt a need to explore this instrumentation that is such an essential strand to jazz's DNA. On Hymn for the Happy Man, Dan is backed by the all-star rhythm section of Christian McBride on bass, Greg Hutchinson on drums, and Mike Eckroth on piano. Together, they realize seven well-crafted originals and breathe new life into one well-chosen standard. Look for its release on June 3rd. In his professional tenure, Dan has been at home as a soloist and section member in some of the finest ensembles on the scene, having performed and recorded with such artists as Christian McBride, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Fantasia, and Usher, in venues from the House of Blues to the White House. He is a founding member of the Brooklyn Jazz Underground collective, and is a regular member of the Christian McBride Big Band, the David Smith Quintet, and the Tammy Scheffer Sextet.

Isaiah J. Thompson 'After-hours' - Smalls Jazz Club
August 01, 2018 - New York

Isaiah J. Thompson is a jazz pianist, bandleader and composer. He began studying classical piano at the age of five and quickly branched out to other styles. He was admitted to The Juilliard School at the age of 18 and since has performed with major artists, including Christian McBride, Joe Farnsworth, Rodney Whitaker, and was featured on Handful of Keys with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Isaiah believes that artistry is a direct channel into the mind and soul of an artist, and as such, feels that it is important to not lose sight of one's individuality or that of others. This had led to his ardent advocacy for diversity both in and outside of his field. As a performer, he tries to emit a feeling of joy and convey his personal experiences through music, and through his everlasting love of jazz.

Resident Alien - The Tank
August 01, 2018 - New York

My desire to fully assimilate to my cultural surrounding stems from my desire to be adored. My sense of identity manifests as an ambivalent balancing act: my fatal differences must be compromised in order to thrive in unfamiliar group settings, but an appropriate amount of exotic barrier must be maintained for the sake of authenticity and for the groups appreciation of diversity. Ideally, I would like to exist within Josh Kuns principle of crossfades: mix without erasing, combine without destroying, to juggle and sustain difference, to use what already exists to create something entirely new. Yet in my practice, I find that my mind-body lets me down: as I gain adoration from one group, I am more alien to another because I forget how to reconnect. In Resident Alien, the audience will observe as performers are guided through a unique process of groupwork that Ive named Group Listening*. The objective of Resident Alien is for the performers to transform a fixed electronic piece into a structured, live sound performance. One designated performer will play the role of the alien; they will be listening to a completely different electronic media piece on headphones while the other players are listening through speakers. Throughout their performance, the group will continuously shape their (re)constructed composition by alternating between attentive listening, improvising, and exchanging verbal feedback. They must reckon with the question of what it means to succeed as a group. In doing so, Resident Alien metaphorically facilitates a process of assimilation between the alien and the rest of the group via this performance practice.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
August 01, 2018 - New York

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Bit Brigade performs: Mega Man II + Castlevania - Rough Trade NYC
August 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

"When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? And no, going to a Gwar show with a white t-shirt on doesn't count. When Bit Brigade takes the stage your mind will frantically oscillate between "Oh! Agh!! Please don't die!!" and "YES! He's doing it!!" Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you're seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock 'n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, "Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!," to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done - which it always is - on the first (and last) try. Once Noah's NES buzzes on, there's no turning back." - Metalhead Mike of The Shizz, summer 2011

Tony Allen - (Le) Poisson Rouge
August 01, 2018 - New York

Drum legend Tony Allen has seen a childhood dream come true. He even says that when he made The Source (his debut album for Blue Note Records), it was the best recording in his whole life. Coming from Allen, that's not a casual statement: he is 76 years old and his career goes back 50 years, not to mention recordings by the hundred. The saxophonist Yann Jankielewicz, who has been playing alongside him for nearly a decade, observes: "Tony has never played drums as well as this. He's never had as much freedom, never had as much power as he does today." The Source is the Nigerian-born Paris-based drummer's first full-length album for Blue Note, following the tantalizing 4-track EP release A Tribute to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Blue Note is one of the most prestigious names in jazz and a label that has opened its sphere of creativity considerably wider since its renaissance in the 1980s. The Source manages to represent the label's classic era at the same time as it symbolizes Blue Note's innovative present. The jazz here navigates its way back to the source in Africa, creating a sound that is totally captivating.

New Perspectives Tour - New Museum of Contemporary Art
August 01, 2018 - New York

Join us for a New Perspectives tour that focuses on intimacy in select works by Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Thomas Bayrle, and John Akomfrah. Together, we will examine how these artists evoke interior life through form, content, and presentation, while answering cultural critic Stuart Hall's prophetic call for us all to "live in a more relativistic way." By comparing Ramírez-Figueroa's immersive installation, Bayrle's analog distortion of images, and Akomfrah's films across multiple screens, we will rigorously contemplate what kinds of proximity and relation contemporary art requires of us. Finally, we will consider our engagements with these works, exploring how the artists stage an encounter between their personal histories and viewers' own stories.

The Road Movie - Rooftop Films
August 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

A wildly unpredictable trip down a Russian-dash-cam rabbit hole. A fascinating mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest shit you've ever seen, Kalashnikov's The Road Movie is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via dashboard cameras in Russian automobiles. Due to lax regulations, the dash-cam is ubiquitous in Russia automobiles. Tens of millions of videos are created each day, capturing a vivid range of spectacles through the windshield, including comets crashing down to Earth, forest fires raging along the highway, and no shortage of motorists escalating road rage to new and unexpected levels. The video footage featured in Kalashnikov's hilarious and bizarre film is often shocking, but no more so than the stoic commentary coming from the jaded Russian passengers.

Rage Fest Featuring Attila - Irving Plaza
August 01, 2018 - New york

ATTILA The fate of Attila was sealed the moment Chris "Fronz" Fronzak was handed a demo by his high-school pal Sean Heenan. It was a disc filled with the extreme sounds of underground metal, housed in the CD jewel case of an album by rapper/actor Ludacris. It's from these gritty essential ingredients, the "biscuits" of Southern-fried metal like Pantera and the "gravy" of hip-hop like Lil Jon, that Attila was born. Each of these seemingly disparate genres are united in aggressive force; in a shared authenticity; by a determination to keep it real, and with loud dedication to stay true to the game. Fitting, of course, that the sometimes controversial and always incredible champions of Warped Tour chose to name their boldest effort yet after the number one thing Attila will always conjure: Chaos. After all, these are the guys who costarred on the hilariously tongue-in-cheek named Supervillains Tour, alongside Ronnie Radke's Falling In Reverse and Metro Station, featuring pop culture firebrand Trace Cyrus. Nothing Attila does is by accident and by far, Chaos is their most confident and self-assured album yet. Make no mistake, Attila is still absolutely nuts and completely in-your-face. Chaos will introduce that craziness to a much bigger portion of the unsuspecting masses.

Brooklyn Traditional Slow Jam - The Old Stone House
August 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

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

The Family Crest - Mercury Lounge
August 01, 2018 - New York

From the onset, Liam McCormick, the mastermind behind The Family Crest, knew that Beneath the Brine was an audacious project. But so is The Family Crest itself. The brainchild of McCormick, The Family Crest was started as a recording project in 2009 with co-founder John Seeterlin (bass). "We were in another band and had become disillusioned about what that band had become about," explains McCormick. "Everyone wanted to be rock stars at the expense of the music. John and I were actually planning on leaving music at that point because we wanted something that in ten years we could be proud of." Instead of leaving music, they set out to reinvent how it could be created, starting The Family Crest. "We always liked making music with people -- getting a bunch of people together and singing. So we put ads everywhere," says McCormick. "We posted on Craigslist and emailed old friends from school." The outcome was greater than the original duo imagined, with 80 people credited on the first recording the band produced. From that a band emerged, at the urging of the guest musicians, who wanted to hear the songs performed live. "We've worked with a lot of conservatory students as well as people who just sing in the shower," McCormick adds. "It became a lot about giving these people a chance to express themselves without being locked into a commitment." Now a seven-piece core band, boasting over 400 "Extended Family" members, The Family Crest will release Beneath the Brine in February 2014 on Tender Loving Empire. Just with its previous recordings, the San Francisco band set out to capture a plethora of instruments -- including bassoon, vibraphone and French horn -- in unique places, such as living rooms, churches and cafes across the West Coast. Following on the heels of last summer's The Headwinds EP (which earned fans in WXPN and Paste), Beneath the Brine shows that McCormick's ambition was well placed.

The Native Howl - Mercury Lounge
August 01, 2018 - New York

Lead vocalists and guitarists Alex Holycross and Jake Sawicki had been friends and musicians in the same area for several years before venturing into what would result in the current lineup of The Native Howl. In the fall of 2013, primarily as a duo, they released a 6 song EP, "The Revolution's Dead." With the addition of Josh LeMieux on drums, and Mark Chandler on bass, the Howl's music has evolved into their own unique blend of rock, folk, bluegrass, alternative, and experimental genres, one of which is being coined as "Thrash Grass." Throw in some keyboards, harmonica, banjo, some djembe, and you get a glimpse of the musical complexity that defines their sound. Their lyrics embody a folk-like storytelling style; the music shines through with a rustic and clean sound. Their sophomore effort "Inukshuk" was released in 2015. They are currently working on a new E.P. as well.

How Can Women & Men Trust Each Other in Love? - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
August 02, 2018 - New York

As people look for love, they’re also looking for someone they feel they can trust. Yet very much, even as men and women are close and feel they need each other, they’re suspicious, wary of one another, and they’re often unclear about why. At the same time, they have the pain of not being sure they themselves deserve to be trusted. Aesthetic Realism answers the question “How Can Women & Men Trust Each Other in Love?” –answers it truly, clearly, in a way that’s deeply satisfying and encouraging. That is what consultants Nancy Huntting, Karen Van Outryve, and Carrie Wilson will show, with illustrations from their own lives, and from literature, film, and painting. You’ll hear, too, what contemporary women are learning in Aesthetic Realism consultations–about love, trust, and more–and how this education makes for greater and greater happiness, intelligence, pride, and ease in their lives!

Matt Pavolka's Horns Band - Smalls Jazz Club
August 02, 2018 - New York

Matt Pavolka is, like, a dude who plays the bass. Some people think that he's totally awesome. He started out as a trombonist but couldn't take the derision. He thought chicks would dig him if he played the bass. He had it confused with the guitar. He is a redneck from the State of Indiana. He was born in Muncie. His parents went to college there with David Letterman. He grew up in Bloomington. Not far from there is a town called Raccoon, and another one called Needmore. He went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, mostly to get the hell out of Indiana. He played a lot of music there. He met many of the musicians that he works with to this day. He met his future wife. He wrote some music. He won some awards. He drank lots and lots of coffee, smoked lots and lots of cigarettes, ate bad pizza and didn't sleep much. He's much healthier now. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York with his beautiful and talented wife Akiko. He makes a lot of great music with amazing musicians in New York City and abroad. He occasionally makes mediocre music with mediocre musicians, for money. He has a band that plays sporadically in the New York area, called "The Matt Pavolka Band". They have one album out on Tone Of A Pitch Records, entitled "Something People Can Use". If someone gives them some money, they may make another one at some point. He has another band, called "The Horns Band". It is kind of like the first band but the music is different. And the musicians. And there are horns (including him on trombone from time to time). And they perform more frequently, at Smalls and other places. They have a record out on Fresh Sound New Talent Records entitled "The Horns Band". Soon they may do another.

Mixing Lowcountry tradition with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B, this band gives true expression of its own name, which is a Gullah expression that translates as "work it" or "get funky."

Cracked Mirror - The Tank
August 02, 2018 - New York

Cracked Mirror is a sketch show created by Collin Knopp-Schwyn and presented by A Horse That Is Bigger Than All The Other Horses. Cast and writer list to be announced.

Radium Prototype - The Tank
Through August 02, 2018 - New York

Radium is first discovered in 1898, and immediately hailed as a world-changing scientific miracle. Thirty years of widespread public obsession later, five gravely ill ex-radium workers successfully sue their former employer. Eventually, these Radium Girls will inspire similar lawsuits and prove a watershed for labor rights, but first, they make headlines as the first diagnosed victims of radium poisoning. After three decades of the elements ubiquity. What was going on all that time? RADIUM PROTOTYPE is an in-progress presentation of a new untitled show about the early 20th centurys dream discovery and the women for whom it became a nightmare. Using a kaleidoscopic range of primary sources and original work, RADIUM PROTOTYPE covers radiums first twenty-five years: a story of scientific achievement gone amok, humankinds hubris in the face of new technology, the pitfalls of public phenomena, and the perils of consumer culture.

Toast - Baby's All Right
August 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

Recorded out of our dorm rooms at Syracuse University, "Onetwothree" came together seamlessly. Josh and I (Claud) have been best friends since our first day of college, so not only does he understand me as a person, he understands my writing and knows exactly how to compliment it with production. We work really well together. We're a perfect musical match. The song is dedicated to this very precarious time in our lives- moving out of our childhood homes and the start of college, where everything is a 'first.' The lyrics came out of me (Claud) immediately after hearing the track that Josh sent me. "Onetwothree" basically became our anthem for the rest of the semester. It's about figuring out how to cope with feeling like you're being misunderstood or not heard. As a queer person, I deal with this a lot, especially at such a big university. It's so difficult to find your voice.

Yarn w/s/g Old Deer Ensemble - FnW ROC - Funk 'N Waffles
August 02, 2018 - Syracuse

Even the most dire circumstance can offer opportunity for new beginnings. Just ask singer/songwriter Blake Christiana or any of the other members of the once Brooklyn based Americana band called Yarn. At least that's the conclusion they came to after a period of real life challenges that left the band splintered and unsure of their forward trajectory. Internal tensions were simmering. A new album was scrapped. A major move from Brooklyn to North Carolina added to the uncertainty. For a band that seemed forever on the verge of a big breakthrough, the future suddenly seemed cloudy. "We were dealing with real life issues," Christiana explains. "Broken relationships, a sense of having to regroup and put some things -- and people -- behind us. That's what I was writing about lyrically in the new songs and it became kind of a catharsis. Nothing was contrived. We didn't have to relate to it in the third person. We were living these circumstances, and that gave us the impetus and inspiration to share our sentiments. Ultimately those setbacks and difficulties led to new opportunities and allowed a little light to shine through."

My blossoms, steeped in water or wine, were said to ease gout, strengthen the memory, and soothe inflamed eyes. These remedies, called "golden water," were so highly valued that they were stored in gold or silver vessels. Who am I?

Women, lacking rouge, sometimes rubbed their cheeks with my leaves to make them glow. I'm sometimes known as "Quaker rouge." Who am I?

Techno-Love Series with Cynthia Alberto - The Museum of Arts and Design
August 02, 2018 - Upper West Side

In conjunction with Summer Studio Residency: Cynthia Alberto and Weaving Hand, Artist Studios Program alum Cynthia Alberto presents Techno-Love Series, an interactive audiovisual exhibit that activates thirty of her woven, wearable “cocoons.” The program begins with a 20-minute performance featuring 30 dancers, emphasizing the inclusive, communal nature of Alberto’s work. Inspired by the euphoria induced by connecting through music, the shamanic, techno-fueled dance routine is a ritual of healing and emotional release. Alberto builds her cocoons through traditional weaving methods, using ropes repurposed from the 2016 MoMA PS1 exhibit Weaving the Courtyard. Modeled on sensory pressure vests—weighted vests designed to have a calming effect on individuals who are overly stimulated—the cocoons give the wearer a sense of both protection and liberation. Cocooned from the surrounding environment, users are able to let go and move freely, without fear of judgment. The result is a wearable piece of art that, far from being an untouchable object, evokes a sense of playfulness, reflection, peace, and escape. After the performance, visitors are invited to interact with the cocoons and engage in their own healing and release.

One River School of Art + Design in collaboration with the The Westchester Mall in White Plains will exhibit artwork from two weeks of Street Art camp by Westchester County art students ages 8 to 18, from Larchmont and Hartsdale locations. Students created paintings inspired by graffiti and street art to convey their own individual messages. Students thought about the impact of different types of public art while exploring how audience and location function in the creation of motifs and iconography. Artists like Banksy have placed graffiti on the map, and campers were able to study the street art movement and create their own large-scale paintings on wood panels with acrylic spray paint.

Light refreshments will be served. The exhibition will be displayed at the Savor Level Top Floor and will remain on display through mid-September 2018.

Gallery Talk: Aneta Szy?ak on 'Hiwa K: Blind as the Mother Tongue' - New Museum
August 02, 2018 - New York

Join us for an in-gallery talk with independent curator Aneta Szy?ak, a collaborator of artist Hiwa K since 2005, on the occasion of the exhibition "Hiwa K: Blind as the Mother Tongue." Drawing on vernacular forms and collaborative and performative actions, the Iraqi-Kurdish artist makes work inspired by political events, chance encounters, oral histories, and his own experiences, including fleeing Iraq on foot in the late 1990s. Szy?ak's talk will address how her collaborations with Hiwa K considered aspects of uncertainty, collaboration, and mutual translation.

Rusty Truck w, Simon Petty & Seth Rothschild - Hill Country Barbecue Market - Hill Country Live
August 02, 2018 - New York

Rusty Truck founder and frontman Mark Seliger was born in Amarillo, TX and now resides in New York City. Before Seliger's musical career began, however, he established himself as a world-renowned photographer. Today Seliger owns a studio in New York City's West Village and is currently under contract with Condé Nast Publications, shooting for Vanity Fair and GQ. Previously, he was the Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone from 1992 to 2002. It was during that period Seliger also began writing his own music. Jakob Dylan heard Seliger's material and was impressed enough to invite him to his studio to record and write. It's been quite the journey since Seliger wrote Never Going Back" with Dylan, but the hard-earned collection of songs that comprise Luck's Changing Lanes speaks for itself. Even Seliger is a little in awe of the accomplishment. Originally available as a limited release under the title Broken Promises, this debut album has been expanded and thoroughly re-imagined as Luck's Changing Lanes, giving Mark Seliger's songs and unique American imagery the presentation they deserve. The follow up album, Kicker Town, was just released, and we welcome Rusty Truck back to Hill Country Live.

STAGE is a live album, and DREAM is the realization of Keller's wish to collaborate with some of his musical heroes. THIEF is a set of unexpected cover songs, KIDS offers Keller's first children's record, PICK presents Keller's collaboration with royal bluegrass family The Travelin' McCoury's, and RAW is a solo acoustic album. Each album showcases Keller's comprehensive and diverse musical endeavors and functions to provide another piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is Keller Williams. Keller's collaborative and solo albums reflect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Unbeholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end product is astounding and novel music that encompasses rock, jazz, funk and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet.

Maria Dahvana Headley: The Mere Wife - Books Are Magic
August 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

New York Times bestselling author Maria Dahvana Headley presents a modern retelling of the literary classic Beowulf, set in American suburbia as two mothers—a housewife and a battle-hardened veteran—fight to protect those they love in The Mere Wife. For Willa, the wife of Roger Herot (heir of Herot Hall), life moves at a charmingly slow pace. She flits between mommy groups, playdates, cocktail hour, and dinner parties, always with her son, Dylan, in tow. Meanwhile, in a cave in the mountains just beyond the limits of Herot Hall lives Gren, short for Grendel, as well as his mother, Dana, a former soldier who gave birth as if by chance. Dana didn't want Gren, didn't plan Gren, and doesn't know how she got Gren, but when she returned from war, there he was. When Gren, unaware of the borders erected to keep him at bay, ventures into Herot Hall and runs off with Dylan, Dana's and Willa's worlds collide.

BADBADNOTGOOD / Charlotte Day Wilson - Prospect Park Bandshell
August 02, 2018 - Brooklyn

Mixing instrumental hip hop with free improvisation and spacey electronica, the virtuosic Toronto quartet BADBADNOTGOOD lets "the jazz philosophy of music bending to individual musicians' styles shape their genre-hopping evolution." (The Seattle Times) The group, which includes keyboardist Matthew Tavares, bassist Chester Hansen, saxophonist Leland Whitty, and drummer Alexander Sowinski, became known for their collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Denzel Curry, Danny Brown, Mick Jenkins, and Ghostface Killah. They recorded at a furious pace after forming in 2011, releasing six albums in five years; their first, BBNG, was laid down in a single three-hour session, setting the tone for the spontaneity and confidence that has marked their career ever since. The singer-songwriter and guitarist CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON, another BBNG collaborator, possesses a "wide, bright, humid voice" (NPR) that packs a heavy emotional wallop. Another product of Toronto, she produces much of her own work—a fact often overlooked as critics swoon about her singing. This combined with her distinctive mix of R&B and dark pop has made her an artist to watch.

DSO After Party w/ Sonic Garden - FnW ROC - Funk 'N Waffles
August 03, 2018 - Syracuse

The members of Sonic Garden have devoted over twenty five years of their existence to: mastering the repertoire of the legendary Grateful Dead, discerning and employing the use of the Dead's improvisational skills and techniques, utilizing their unique show format and bringing the sound and the spirit of the band's concerts to their own live shows in and around Buffalo, New York. The members of Sonic Garden deliver each performance with sincerity, affection, and expertise which has led the band to play a significant role in the development and sustenance of Western New York's 'Deadhead' community, over the years. Sonic Garden has been a local Buffalo tradition since 1988. The band has experienced many personnel changes throughout the years which have included many very special people. The band has recently experienced a resurgence allowing them to illustrate and sustain a high level of professionalism and musicianship. After the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995, The Grateful Dead ended their decades of shows and touring, leaving their fans with only memories, bootleg cassette recordings, cable-TV documentaries, and cover bands to fill the void. Sonic Garden, already a well-established example of the latter, continues bringing to their audience the excitement, variety, and spontaneity of The Dead's original concerts. Sonic Garden's efforts have also paid off, as increasing numbers of young people, many learning about this music for the first time in their lives, now have a chance to experience the live renditions of The Dead's music firsthand, and to connect with the spirit and culture of its attendant and devoted community of fans.

Jerry Drake and The Front Page Big Band - Knockdown Center
August 03, 2018 - Maspeth

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

Caesium, Whatever We Are, New Divide - 89 North Music Venue
August 03, 2018 - Patchogue

Hailing from Long Island, Caesium is an all original hard rock band with gripping female vocals in the likes of Evanescence and In This Moment. Riding on the edge of heavy metal, the band carefully balances grooves and crushing guitar riffs with beautiful melodies to achieve a sound that many can connect with. Christina Alexander's alto vocals mix with Jason Alexander's guitar melodies to create an atmosphere that is fully constructed with the articulate work of CJ Dykas and Craig McKenna in the rhythm section. The group's four members - Gabrielle Ross, Chris "Trippz" Michaud, Joey Castellani, and Ian Biggs - had spent the majority of their careers as solo arts, but the energy when they wrote and recorded together was undeniable, so they embraced the new direction. As a result, these songs represent not only a clean start artistically, but a fresh new outlook on life. At times calling to mind modern chart toppers like The Black Eyed Peas and Twenty One Pilots, Whatever We Are's music blurs the boundaries of genre as it melds four distinct voices into a singular whole.

August 03, 2018 - Massapequa Park

Six-year-old Sean Griffin and his four-year-old brother Kyle made news when their charity lemonade stand at their grandparents house in Massapequa Park (and Facebook fundraiser event) raised $7,000 for Answer the Call last summer. They're back and this year, their goal is to go bigger! The mission of the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund is to support the families of New York City Police Officers, Firefighters, Port Authority Police, and EMS Personnel who have been killed in the line of duty. When these brave men and women make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our city, Answer the Call believes it is our civic duty to support the families these heroes have left behind. Their mission is to reassure these families that we will never forget them or the sacrifice made by their loved ones. They provide financial assistance, host special gatherings, and offer a network of support to over 600 families. Their goal is to raise enough funds to assist these families for the rest of their lives. To learn more please visit www.answerthecall.org Lauren Profeta, executive director of Answer the Call, was excited to work with the boys. "On behalf of everyone at Answer the Call, we can't thank the Griffin family enough for their support," said Lauren Profeta. "In addition to raising thousands of dollars for the families of fallen heroes, the two young Griffin boys have inspired all of us. They remind us that a person's impact on their community is not determined by one's size or age, but by their desire to help others." Weeks later, on 9/11/17, the boys received a proclamation from Massapequa park Mayor Jeff Pravato for their community service. "It was important to honor them on 9/11. They are already growing into their roles as outstanding citizens," he said.

IJS Festival: Eitan Kenner Quartet - The Cornelia Street Cafe
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Eitan Kenner Quartet is celebrating the release of Kenner's new album "8ball City". The album is set to come out this summer, and the band will play compositions off of it as well as other unique arrangements. Born in the heart of Tel-Aviv, Brooklyn based musician and vocalist Gaya Feldheim Schorr was introduced to music at home. Her mother, a multimedia artist with an immense musical taste, brought her up to be highly receptive to diversity and acquainted with a multitude of musical genres and eras, all coming to form the musical fiber of her artistic palate. Gaya creates and performs jazz and creative contemporary music, deconstructing her wide array of musical influences to conjure up her enchanting original voice. Born in Jerusalem and raised in Buenos-Aires and Tel-Aviv before moving to New York in late 2011, Or Bareket has quickly established himself as one of the most sought after bassists on the NYC jazz scene, as well as a bandleader with a persuasive sense of composition. Brooklyn-based Israeli guitarist Nadav Remez's new band reimagines the traditional organ trio. Over new compositions influences by genres ranging from indie to middle eastern music, as well as favorite old standards, the group stretches its improvisations into new territories, exploring sounds and textures that are unexpected and surprising – keeping the listeners on their toes.

This diaspora novel is a celebration of Indian and African culture as seen through the eyes of a young woman, who brings her heritage with her wherever she goes. As a member of an Indian minority in a small African country, Shaza's life is complicated from the beginning. She looks for trouble and is always getting into scrapes and fights. She allies herself with her soft-hearted grandmother in a lively house full of relatives dropping by for long meals and siestas. Her family sends her to a strict English boarding school, but she tries to run away. Later, she meets Idi Amin, the bloodthirsty Ugandan dictator, he invites her to the palace which few people come back from alive… As a teenager, Shaza goes to a convent school run by Irish nuns. Despite the strict rules, the girls are beginning to discover the opposite sex and flirting with what's forbidden. Shaza is part of a Muslim family that emigrated from India at the turn of the century, but the old ways still rule. No one in Kenya dates, they just sneak around. At seventeen, Shaza meets a handsome Hindu boy at a party; Sameer is smitten but they come from two different religions. Sameer and Shaza sneak around going to parties and movies, seeing each other secretly. Shaza is torn between her sense of duty and her longing for Sameer. Will the relationship survive her family's disapproval and a long separation? They live in difficult times in a turbulent African country; Shaza's cousin is almost killed by thugs and Kenya has a coup d'état where the Indian minority is targeted. The saga follows Shaza's life from the 1960's to the 1980's showing the political upheavals in Kenya and her move to the United States. Nairobi Days is a coming of age story, a love story, a political novel and above all a celebration of life.

Modern Calligraphy Bootcamp - CraftJam
August 03, 2018 - New York

Learn everything you ever wanted to know about getting started with calligraphy! Based on our popular Modern Calligraphy series, the Calligraphy Bootcamp offers an all-in-one approach to learning about the tools of the trade for calligraphy. In 3 hours, calligrapher Danielle Rothman will teach you how to use a gel pen, marker, and traditional pen and ink to make beautiful writing that reflects your personal style. Please note: this class is meant to be taken instead of the 3-session class, not in addition. Calligraphy is a millennia-old art form, with its roots in both Eastern and Western cultures. Traditionally, calligraphy was used for illuminated manuscripts and formal writing. Modern calligraphy, the focus of this class, used both new and traditional tools to create a more free-form style of writing that maintains the elegance of traditional calligraphy while allowing for more self-expression. This class is beginner-friendly; no experience necessary! We will have all the supplies and materials ready for you. During in class exercises you will create a name card and several greeting cards for friends and family. You will also receive a brush marker and dip pen (with nib!) for you to continue practicing at home.

Cherry Glazerr - Rough Trade NYC
August 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

Society would deem that a prodigious girl can't be in a progressive rock band while also being in complete control of its creative vision, business plan and social messaging. Society is wrong. Clem, a 19 year old teen Queen with a headstrong resolve like her hero Patti Smith and a cartoon laugh like Muttley the dog, dreamed up Cherry Glazerr in her LA bedroom alone and is perhaps more capable of figuring a music career out than anyone who attempts this treacherous life path. And yet, she carries herself very lightly. "This one's going to be a flop!" she jokes, here to discuss the newly lined-up trio's second album, Apocalipstick. It's every bit as epic, funny, life-assuring, doom-defiant and flaming fire as that title sounds. What's more, it's the soundtrack to their collective rockstar evolution. Today things look a little different from the band's early days back in 2014 when they were associated with much-loved Cali imprint Burger Records (who put out their intoxicating debut Haxel Princess) and Suicide Squeeze (who released the Had Ten Dollaz 7-inch). Back then, they were born as a different trio, featuring Hannah Uribe and Sean Redman who have since both moved onto other artistic pursuits.

Jazzy Jazz Festival Summer 2018 - Medgar Evers College
August 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

"The department is carrying forth the legacy and goal of this extraordinary educational and cultural program," states Dr. Clinton Crawford, the current department chair. "Attendees can relax in style to the rhythms of Jazz in the cool and friendly outdoors. We do not envision Jazzy Jazz as simply a summer concert event," he said. "This festival and its performers will become embedded in the educational life of the community."

Dierks Bentley with Special Guests Brothers Osborne & Lanco - Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
August 03, 2018 - Bethel

Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley found himself instantly intrigued with the song idea of his new single "Woman Amen," during a co-write with songwriters Josh Kear and Ross Copperman. The result is one of Bentley's most personal songs that also taps into a universal feeling of love and gratitude for those who walk through life beside us. There was also something entirely captivating about performing this past summer at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Surrounded by his musical heroes, deep in the box canyon of the Colorado mountain town, the course was set for the creative process of Bentley's ninth studio album, THE MOUNTAIN (Capitol Records Nashville), which will be released in early 2018. New music quickly follows as its debut single "Woman Amen" gives a taste of the record's "themes of questing and self-actualization across a wide-open terrain of arid deserts and rugged ridgelines, cactus flowers and tumbleweeds," (NPR). The writing process came together quickly when Bentley returned to Telluride a short time later for a retreat with fellow Nashville songwriters. Guitars, banjos, mandolins, and fiddles are given room to shine, and integrated into modern drum and bass sounds that will fuel the arenas and amphitheaters of Bentley's 2018 tour. While earning 17 career No. Ones, he has garnered nominations from the ACM, CMA, GRAMMY and Billboard Music Awards, he also served as a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade. For more information, visit www.Dierks.com. Singer/songwriter siblings Brothers Osborne recently won CMA "Vocal Duo of the Year" for the second year in a row in addition to "Music Video of the Year" for their Top 10, GRAMMY-nominated single "It Ain't My Fault." They also stand as the reigning ACM "Vocal Duo" and "New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year." Brothers Osborne's debut album PAWN SHOP was released January 2016 and was recently certified Gold by the RIAA. PAWN SHOP features three GRAMMY-nominated tracks including "It Ain't My Fault", the PLATINUM certified No. One smash hit "Stay A Little Longer" as well as Top 25 hit "21 Summer." Brothers Osborne has toured with the likes of Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert. They just released their new single "Shoot Me Straight" off their forthcoming sophomore album to be released later this year.

Erin Enderlin, Levi Lowrey, Travis Meadows - Opry City Stage
August 03, 2018 - New York

When Erin Enderlin writes a song, more is born than melody and rhyme. Women and men leap from her music, as fully formed and real as we are, all blood and sweat, living, loving, killing, and dying. Produced by Jamey Johnson and Jim "Moose" Brown and featuring Chris Stapleton, Randy Houser, Ricky Skaggs, Jon Randall, and more, Enderlin's highly anticipated sophomore album Whiskeytown Crier puts all the sad souls she's become known for singing and writing about in the same tiny, fictional city. The result is unprecedented: a concept album devoted to women's experiences in small town, America. An in-demand songwriter, she penned Alan Jackson's "Monday Morning Church," Lee Ann Womack's "Last Call," and others for Luke Bryan, Randy Travis, Terri Clark, Joey + Rory, and many more, while her two critically acclaimed EP releases and 2017's Whiskeytown Crier have positioned her as one of county music's brightest torch bearers. Most recently she was named one of CMT's Next Women Of Country class of 2018.

Thomas' simple rig is a couple of key-boards, a drum pad, and a MacBook, the output of which is projected on a screen behind him, so the audience can see 'under the hood' while he performs each piece. The list of breakthrough innovations in Thomas Dolby's 35 year career is con-tinuous. As an early MTV icon he blazed a trail for electronic music with his im-aginative videos. The same year as his own record reached the top of the pop/dance charts, he co-wrote and produced the first ever platinum-selling rap 12" single Magic's Wand by Whodini. His synth playing and production have graced the recordings of Foreigner, Def Lepperd, George Clinton and Joni Mitchell, earning five Grammy™ nominations. He appeared live with Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock, with David Bowie at Live Aid, and with Roger Wa-ters at The Wall in Berlin. And his self-penned She Blinded Me With Science became a Top 5 Billboard hit, going on to become an evergreen geek anthem of the 1980s that still pops up in Grand Theft Auto, The Big Bang Theory and Breaking Bad. Thomas has created original music for features films produced by George Lu-cas, Steven Spielberg and Ken Russell; he has appeared with The Muppets, and on numerous TV shows from Soul Train to The Late Show.

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.

Alan Braufman featuring Cooper-Moore & James Brandon Lewis - National Sawdust
August 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

Cooper-Moore is an American jazz pianist, composer and instrument builder/designer based in New York City. James Brandon Lewis, a jazz saxophonist in his 30s, raw-toned but measured, doesn't sound steeped in current jazz-academy values and isn't really coming from a free-improvising perspective. There's an independence about him, and on "Days of FreeMan" (Okeh), he makes it sound natural to play roaming, experimental funk, with only the electric bassist Jamaladeen Tacuma and the drummer Rudy Royston, and without much sonic enhancement.

The Work of Play: Developing Self-Regulation in Early Childhood - Adelphi University
August 03, 2018 - Garden City

Play is the portal through which young children are afforded access to a vast array of developmental opportunities. Among these is the occasion to practice regulation in spontaneous, self-directed, holistic and responsive ways. In play, children are in a relatively constant flow of selecting and shifting attention, starting and stopping, planning and grading movement, modulating states of arousal, affect and activity level, changing vocal volume, initiating and responding to social bids, and solving problems. Indeed, play is an action arena that promotes the development of self-regulation without the need for an imposed task!

DINA - Rooftop Films
August 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

An intimate documentary love story about Dina and Scott, a neurologically diverse couple in suburban Philadelphia. Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge. Scott freezes when it comes to physical intimacy, and Dina, a Kardashians fanatic, wants nothing more than to share with Scott all she's learned about sensual desire from books, TV shows, and her previous marriage. Her increasingly creative forays to draw Scott close keep hitting roadblocks—exposing anxieties, insecurities, and communication snafus while they strive to reconcile their conflicting approaches to romance and intimacy.An Orchard release.

Youth Camp! Glass Rebel: Intro to Glassblowing - UrbanGlass
Through August 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

Designed for young students, this introductory glassblowing class focuses on experimenting with molten glass in the hot shop.

Once students have acquired these basic skills they will begin to deconstruct traditional methods of manipulating glass and explore the material through their raw and unfiltered lens. We will embrace unique objects, unusual methods, and steer clear of conformity in our designs. There is genius in young minds and hands that are not yet inundated with formalities and expectations, and we will harness that for our unexpected creations! Open to ages 11-18.

They also played a string of intimate Sofar Sounds shows in the midwest and east coast and made some special appearances in Austin, Texas at SXSW and Red Gorilla Music Festival.

It also represents a new era of assured artistry after a period of tireless touring and soul searching. The self-produced seven-track collection, favors full band live on-the-floor takes as the core foundation to construct songs, and then reimagines these recordings with soulful and tasteful experimental studio wizardry.

Lance Lopez Band - Hill Country Barbecue Market - Hill Country Live
August 03, 2018 - New York

There's no doubt about it, the state of Texas is well known world wide for its fiery blues guitar players. Even just a cursory look will reveal the state's rich tradition, which easily rivals Chicago and Mississippi for producing players who have been both originators and contributors to the legacy of the guitar's significant role in the genre's history. Dating back to the 1920's with "Blind" Lemon Jefferson, continuing through the 1950's with such legends as Freddie King, T-Bone Walker and "Lightning" Hopkins, with the advent of the rock era of the 1960's the pressure cooker exploded. Albino blues giant Johnny Winter, from Beaumont, in 1968 was signed to what was then the largest advance in the history of the recording industry---$600,000. Houston's ZZ Top, with the Reverend Willie G, i.e. Billy F. Gibbons - armed with a '59 Les Paul- during the 70's went from being "That little ol' band from Texas" to being world wide ambassadors with their unique brand of deep blues infused boogie rock.

The Outlaws - Highline Ballroom
August 03, 2018 - New York

AMEX Logo For The Outlaws, it was always about the music. For 40 years, the Southern Rock legends celebrated triumphs, endured tragedies and survived legal nightmares to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Now The Outlaws return with new music, new focus and an uncompromising new mission: It's about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony and the road. It's about a group that respects its own legacy while refusing to be defined by its past. But most of all, it's about pride. It's About Pride is the new album from The Outlaws, a record 4 years in the making and perhaps 20 or more in the waiting. And for original Outlaws singer/songwriter/guitarist Henry Paul, it's a hard-fought revival whose success can be measured in old fans and new music. "Because The Outlaws have been out of the public eye for so long, it's almost like starting over," he explains. "But because of the band's history, we're seeing this as a new chapter. We've written and recorded this album on our own terms, and we're out to make a significant impression. What our fans loved then they still love now, because we are just as good or even better than we were. Most of all, they recognize the heart of what it is we still do." For co-founding drummer/songwriter Monte Yoho, the journey is both bittersweet and jubilant. "I still think about the friends we made when we first came into this industry, how we struggled to define this thing that became known as 'Southern Rock'," Yoho says. "This new album embodies all the things we shared musically and personally, as well as the relationships we have with our fans to this day. It's about where we've been, where we're going, and why we still love to do this."

Part & Parcel - UrbanGlass
Through August 03, 2018 - Brooklyn

Sometimes parts that are integral to a whole need to be created separately before being assembled into a finished state. For Part and Parcel we will concentrate on part-making, all the whys and hows of making cast glass elements that later combine with each other, other process-made glass parts or found objects. Students should come with ideas for making sculptural or functional forms that consist of various elements. As a class and individually we will discuss, technically and visually how best to deconstruct these forms in order to re-make them in parts, and in doing so will explore in-process design strategies and post-casting assembly options. Technically, our focus will be on lost-wax casting, including processes for making wax multiples, approaches to spruing and venting and of course mold-making and firing strategies along with all of the necessary information in between. Some familiarity with glass casting basics is a plus, but not mandatory.

Festival appearances this year at Coachella, Sasquatch!, Boston Calling, Electric Forest, and the Pitchfork Music Festival, among others, have the world watching, leading up to her BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! debut. The night begins with sets from the electrifying, old school funk and soul-loving Brooklyn rapper and singer TOPAZ JONES, who "proved his scholarship by weaving West Coast G-funk with Southern rap flows" (Pitchfork) on his debut Arcade (2016), and JAZZ BELLE, a Harlem outfit with "a sound that's both unique and intimate, carving out its own space in the NYC expanding alt soul scene."

LPR X: LPR Presents Béla Fleck – The Solo Concert at Murmrr Theatre - (Le) Poisson Rouge
August 04, 2018 - New York

Just in case you aren't familiar with BÉLA FLECK, there are many who say he's the premiere banjo player in the world. Others claim that Béla has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. If you are familiar with Béla, you know that he just loves to play the banjo, and put it into unique settings. Born and raised in New York City, Béla began his musical career playing the guitar. In the early 1960's, while watching the Beverly Hillbillies, the bluegrass sounds of Flatt & Scruggs flowed out of the TV set and into his young brain. Earl Scruggs's banjo style hooked Béla's interest immediately. "It was like sparks going off in my head" he later said. It wasn't until his grandfather bought him a banjo in September of '73, that it became his full time passion. That week, Béla entered New York City's, High School of Music and Art. He began studies on the French horn but was soon demoted to the chorus, due his lack of musical aptitude. Since the banjo wasn't an offered elective at Music & Art, Béla sought lessons through outside sources. Erik Darling, Marc Horowitz, and Tony Trischka stepped up and filled the job. Béla joined his first band, "Wicker's Creek" during this period. Living in NYC, Béla was exposed to a wide variety of musical experiences.. One of the most impressive was a concert by "Return to Forever" featuring Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke. This concert encouraged further experimenting with bebop and jazz on the banjo, signs of things to come.

Billy Kaye's career in percussion has spanned nearly 60 years. Billy Kaye was born Willie King Seaberry in 1932 in North Carolina. He began performing as a drummer in 1950 with Percy Mayfield, and he organized a trio to play service club shows while stationed in Libya. During his years in the service, he met and played with Hans Koller (German saxophonist), Benny Green (trombonist) and Matthew McGee (former Duke Ellington Orchestra member).

Brooklyn Circle - Smalls Jazz Club
August 04, 2018 - New York

Stacy Dillard, raised in Muskegon Heights, Michigan, started playing the saxophone at a rather late age. In his hometown, there isn't much music happening, but only Robert Moore, Stacy's band instructor, and a host of close friends. Athletics was a big part of his life, leading to the late start on the instrument. Stacy attended college at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to study with Dr. William Denza, Jim Smith, Chris Berg, and Lenard Moses. Very quickly, Dillard acquired the necessary knowledge that would soon put his name out on the local scene. It was a run-in with Wynton Marsalis in Dayton, Ohio that would turn his attention to the New York Scene. After graduation, Stacy took the act to Cincinnati, where he stayed for a short time and made his first recording appearance with Mike Wade on trumpet, drummer Melvin Broach and pianist William Menefield. Maturation was very rapid, finally leading the way to New York.

The New Tarot, The U.S. Americans - The Bowery Ballroom
August 04, 2018 - New York

NYC-based, sister-fronted, post-genre group, The New Tarot, gear up to release debut full-length album, in the wake of their third EP, God of Science. The new yet-to-be-named LP is about enlightenment from another century and revelation in an era of political and spiritual uncertainty. Singles from the last release, "Heavy Metal," "Tell Me You Like Me" and "Solid Sun" paved the way for the debut full-length. The EP adopted the name of title track "God of Science," a sardonic take on modern faith, yet the themes running through this collection have a much wider range – from social media-based egoism to ephemeral existence. Psychology Today, who premiered "Heavy Metal" did an in-depth interview with songwriter, Monika Walker, on its theme: magical consciousness – it's been a fan-favorite ever since. Previous EP, STELLA!, made a splash with "Memory Kills," which made its debut on NYLON, who describe the single, "ethereal, but too tough to be called dreamy, and upbeat in all the right places." The video for title track, "Stella," premiered on CMJ this past Halloween, which was fitting for the spooky vibe and haunted set, where it was shot. A new video for "That Ain't Me" is currently in post-production – unlike "Stella," this next video is completely animated. Inspired by the grooves of David Bowie, Regina Spektor and The Flaming Lips, The New Tarot create songs that Music Times call "one part synth-filled pop, one part thrashing alternative rock, a splash of sisterhood and a sprinkle of the occult." Diffuser.fm praise the unique sound of the group stating, "TheNew Tarot flip alternative rock on its head with the powerful stories found in their irresistible songs." They've previously been featured on BreakThru Radio, Last FM, SoFar Sounds (NYC and Athens, Greece) and other studio sessions. With love from Consequence of Sound, Bitch Magazine, Indie Shuffle, Baeble Music and many more, there are no signs of slowing down – especially with a full-length album on the way. The Walker sisters, Monika (vocals/guitar) and Karen (vocals/keyboard), formed their band in the spring of 2014. While performing poetry outside Union Squares' subway entrance, Monika Walker captivated the attention of a passing man, who would later become the band's manager. After hearing the brilliance in Monika's use of verbiage and poetry, and learning she had a sister studying music composition at college, the soon-to-be manager convinced Karen to leave college and pursue a career in music with her sister.

Jay became a very busy studio musician in New York City, visiting every musical genre from James Taylor to Ozzy Osbourne and Queen Latifah.

When that night comes for Kiki, she embarks on her life journey with her chatty black cat, Jiji, landing the next morning in a seaside village, where a bakery owner hires her to make deliveries. Rarely has the animator’s art been so brilliantly rendered as in this delightfully imaginative film—a beautiful and timeless story of a young girl finding her way in the world. (102 min.)

Voice Cult: Come Sing - House of Yes
August 04, 2018 - Brooklyn

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.

With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story.

Amy Lynn and The Honey Men Celebrate Miss Janis Joplin - The Cutting Room
August 04, 2018 - New York

In a complex, ever-changing world, singer Amy Lynn finds herself asking: what would Janis do? A celebration of the legendary performer's indomitable spirit, A Woman Left Lonely sees Amy and her horn-heavy band the Honey Men tearing into Janis Joplin's ferocious songs while re-contextualizing them for 2017. Over the course of the show, Amy considers Janis's legacy as a sexually liberated, emotionally vulnerable (queer) woman in today's context, when such a person is only slightly less terrifying to the world than she would have been in the late 1960s. Songs include horn-powered arrangements of "Piece of My Heart," "Little Girl Blue," "A Woman Left Lonely," "Me and Bobby McGee," and more. Amy Lynn & The Honey Men bring their 9-piece band to Feinstein's/54 Below to sing Janis Joplin's greatest hits. Join them as they capture her unique sound and energy for an unforgettable evening celebrating this rock and roll legend. Amy Lynn & The Honey Men are a group that blows glitter all over the traditional memphis-motown soul/rock style. At the controls is Amy Lynn, a vocal powerhouse whose unique flair of quirky, down-to-earth humor countervails against the serious musicianship of The Honey Men's team of bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. Both together and apart, members of The Honey Men draw on a range of experience playing with acts such as Roberta Flack, Spoon, Bette Midler, Beth Hart, St. Vincent, The National, Yo La Tengo, Duffy, Antibalas, and the Radio City Orchestra.

Glass Half Full Comedy: Up Beat Comedy for Down Beat Times - Gotham Comedy Club
August 04, 2018 - New York

In these tough times, it's easy to get down. To give up. To lose faith. That's why we need some fun, good times and laughter. To combat the negative and remember the good parts of life. That's what Glass Half Full Comedy is all about. We remind you that even when things seem like they're at their worst, there are still plenty of things to provide laughter and joy. Glass Half Full Comedy is brought to you by: Alex Barnett As the White, Jewish husband of a Black woman (who converted to Judaism) and the father of a 3-year old, Biracial son, Alex focuses on the challenges of being a parent in a bad economy and the issues that confront interracial families. Alex has been featured on Sirius/XM Radio's "Raw Dog Comedy," NBC's EVB Live, ComedyTime TV, RT TV America and NYC-TV and in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and CNN.com. In 2011, he won the 12th Annual Gilda's Club (Northern NJ) Laugh-Off. Dan Enfield Combining outrageously raunchy observations, biting insights into the absurdities of modern living, and the occasional poorly placed pun with an in-your-face stage presence, Daniel Enfield has quickly become one of the most recognizable faces in comedy. Originally from Miami, Dan began his comedy work while at the University of Colorado. In 2007, he was one of several comedians featured at Denver's Oriental Theater for a performance called The Bad Boys of Jewish Comedy. In the days that have followed, Dan has performed at clubs and colleges across the country, including The Miami Improv, Syracuse University, Denver University, The University of Colorado Boulder and Florida International University. Since 2009, Dan has been a resident of New York, a city he has embraced and which has embraced him. Max Neuman Max Neuman is a rising comedian and writer, born and raised in New York City. Max wants to make clear that he is not from Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, or Connecticut, all of which seem like very nice places to have been born and raised, too. So nice, in fact, that Max wonders why people from those places say they are from New York City instead. When Max is not wondering about that, he performs at clubs, bars, and his studio apartment, a masterful space that quadruples as a living room, bedroom, home office, and practice stage.

Marilyn Maye - Birdland
Through August 04, 2018 - New York

The Birdland Theater is proud to announce that legendary, Grammy-nominated songstress Marilyn Maye will be headlining in the brand new performance space for two weeks. Ms. Maye will be accompanied by the Tedd Firth Trio from July 24 – 28, and the Billy Stritch Trio from July 31 – August 4, with shows at 7pm each night. Marvelous Ms. Maye, who just celebrated her 90th birthday with a string of concerts and a featured interview on CBS Sunday Morning, has been crisscrossing the country playing hundreds of clubs, concert halls and joints for over seven decades. From a humble beginning as an amateur contest singing sensation in her native Topeka, Kansas, to 76 appearances on "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson," a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in the mid 1960's and inclusion in the Smithsonian permanent collection of 20th century recordings, vocalist Marilyn has done it all. But despite endless kudos -- the late Ella Fitzgerald dubbed her "The greatest white female singer in the world" -- Marilyn was performing infrequently when a 2006 appearance at Lincoln Center sparked a career renaissance. Rex Reed said, "The second coming of Marilyn Maye continues full steam ahead… miss her at your own peril," while the Wall Street Journal said, "she has the rhythm and musicianship of a great jazz singer, the projection and personality of a heavyweight Broadway diva." The New York Times' Stephen Holden summed it up, saying Marilyn's "…relationship with her fans has the emotional depth and complexity of a solid, rewarding marriage. She has the inexhaustible stamina and vocal heft of a woman half her age, and her spirited optimism is irresistibly contagious."

Storytime with Kyle Lukoff: A Storytelling of Ravens - Books Are Magic
August 04, 2018 - Brooklyn

A sloth of bears, a smack of jellyfish, a nuisance of cats — these are some of the surprising and idiosyncratic names we have for groups of animals. Inspired by the evocative possibilities of collective nouns, also called "terms of venery," author Kyle Lukoff and illustrator Natalie Nelson have created a picture book full of clever wordplay and delightful illustrations. Each spread features a nugget of a story using a particular term, which is accompanied by a collage illustration that serves as the visual punch line. But where did these unusual names come from? Many of them can be traced back to a book on hunting, hawking and heraldry, printed in 1486 — the Book of St. Albans, which has been reproduced many times since. A Storytelling of Ravens provides a unique opportunity to explore and rejoice in the oddities of the English language.

Fraser also produced 14 of the 15 tracks of Riley's second record, Parables, which also featured the legendary rhythm section of Sly and Robbie. Riley followed these with 2009's Contagious, 2012's Mecoustic, and 2014's Love Situation, each of which yielded more hits and continued to grow his following. MWENSO & THE SHAKES combine African and Afro American musical traditions into an electrifying sound The New York Times calls "intense, prowling, and ebullient." Hailing from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica, and Hawaii, its members now all call Harlem home.

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.

Skintight - The Laura Pels Theatre
Through August 05, 2018 - New York

Roundabout reunites writer Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) and director Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews) for Skintight, a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex. Reeling from her ex-husband's engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who's 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi's son. Who's also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what's on the inside. Joshua Harmon's Skintight will begin performances on May 31, 2018 and open officially on June 21, 2018. This is a limited engagement Off-Broadway. A Roundabout commission. Skintight is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Joshua Harmon's Skintight was developed at Roundabout with support from the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation.

Matt Schofield - Iridium
Through August 05, 2018 - New York

Schofield is lauded as the British blues guitarist of current times. Guitarist magazine said, "There isn't a better British blues guitarist playing currently". With his first release for Provogue, Schofield finds himself as representative for the long tradition of British Blues on the ultimate blues guitar label, and gaining a home amongst his peers – the world's greatest contemporary blues players. The Schofield story is exploding internationally; the world is sitting up and taking note. Back from another well-received US tour, Schofield is expanding his borders. The LA Times stated, "In Schofield, the UK has produced the best blues guitarist from any country in decades. Head and shoulders above the herd." Vintage Guitar magazine said, "The best of his generation's European blues players. His feel for the music is incredible. His playing is so interesting that latching onto his records will reward any guitarist." The new collection finds Schofield on stunning form, well able to justify both his fearsome reputation and also the sense of anticipation around this release. Alongside two choice covers from his musical heroes, the album's nine original tracks showcase his continued growth as an exciting songwriter within the genre, delivered with impassioned vocals to create a diverse and unique take on the blues. "Far As I Can See'" is his fifth studio album. He has also released four live collections, and a guitar instructional DVD for publisher Hal Leonard. The recipient of major awards – British Blues Awards Guitarist of the Year 2010, 2011 & 2012 (making him the first guitarist in the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame), Mojo Magazine Blues Album of the Year 2011 and British Blues Awards Album of the Year 2010 – he imbues this album with stunning musicianship; but never at the expense of heart and soul. Matt said, "I had some very distinct goals in mind, and a few definite broader concepts I wanted to explore. However, I also wanted to remain open to where the process might take us, maintaining the excitement that improvising and collaborating with talented musicians allows. The inspiration and goals came from many places – things I felt hadn't fully realized on previous studio records, my influences old and new, including musicians I have wanted to work with for years, and a need to keep growing, pushing myself, and represent where I'm heading now. First and foremost I wanted to go as far as possible to capturing the same connection with the listener that I aim to make at a live show." Matt Schofield was rated in the top ten British blues guitarists of all time by Guitar & Bass Magazine alongside such icons as Eric Clapton and Peter Green. His prowess as a blues guitarist has seen him trade licks with iconic guitarists like Buddy Guy and Robben Ford; and brought him high praise in the 'Penguin Book of Blues Recordings' as one of only two living British artists to gain a maximum four-star rating.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through August 06, 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.

Le Blanc - The PIT Loft
Through August 06, 2018 - New York

Le Blanc is a non-linear full length play with elements of music, art distillation, light design, and dance. Our show follows the rags to riches (back to rags) autobiography of the world infamous, unapologetically Black, openly queer, political, and talented (fictional) character of Wellington "Isyss" Le Blanc. Through a series of interviews and vignettes, we explore Wellington's life from his humble beginnings as a motherless child in the Foster/Adoption system of California, to his sexy exploits as a serial monogamist with a diverse selection of male and female lovers, all the way through his unconventional outlook and relationship with HIV/AIDS, and right into his underground rise to notoriety on the NYC gay ballroom scene as a member of the "House Of Le Blanc". What lies beyond his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer will be sure to shock as audiences witness his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and "criminal". The show explores race, intimacy, sexuality, relationships, as well as our American judicial, health care, and law enforcement systems from a Black, All American, queer perspective.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Through August 26, 2018 - New York

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

John Lucas and Claudia Rankine Stamped - Pioneer Works
Through August 26, 2018 - Brooklyn

Historically, blondness has been a signifier for desirability and beauty. It speaks to "purity" and whiteness—the purity of whiteness—like no other bodily attribute except, perhaps, blue eyes. In the twenty-first century, blondness is the look desired by our American president, pop stars, rappers, television announcers, Hollywood celebrities, the boy next door, and some, though not all, Asian Americans, African Americans, white Americans, Arab Americans, and LatinX Americans. The desirability of blonde hair has no genre boundaries, no pronoun limitation, and no class limit. Whether one is a bottle blonde or regularly goes to the salon, blondness is ubiquitous. In Stamped, filmmaker and photographer John Lucas and writer Claudia Rankine have collaboratively captured photographs of dyed blonde hair, as seen on the heads of strangers and acquaintances. These images—zoomed in and cropped—are framed as still images and also transposed onto real postage stamps. The stamp, a form of currency with inherent mobility, becomes a metaphor for questioning: What do we attribute to blondness? Where do we think it will take us? These questions are implicated in recorded conversations between Rankine and the individuals that she encounters, which play throughout the gallery space. Meanwhile, a video installation by Lucas depicts cascading strands of hair.

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.

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Swords into Ploughshares: Sculpture by Jay Moss - Hebrew Home at Riverdale, Goldfine Pavilion Lobby Gallery
    Through October 07, 2018 - Bronx

    Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, Swords into Ploughshares: Sculpture by Jay Moss on view in the Pauline and William Goldfine Pavilion Lobby Gallery from July 15–October 7, 2018. A reception will take place on Sunday, July 15, from 1:30–3 p.m. in the Goldfine Pavilion Lobby Gallery, located at 5901 Palisade Avenue in the Riverdale section of The Bronx. This event is free and open to the public. R.S.V.P. 718.581.1596 or [email protected] Photo I.D. required for admission. The exhibition includes 13 sculptures made between 1980 and 2012. Many of them reflect Moss’s experience on the front lines during WWII when he served as a combat engineer. Moss has worked for more than seven decades crafting sculptures that resonate with his experience of the horrors of war and his hope for a lasting peace. In these relief and tabletop works assembled with wood, metal, sheet lead, plastic and other materials, Moss addresses a range of social issues. Sometimes whimsical or ironic, they comment on such subjects as the corrupting influence of power and the treatment of prisoners from German prison camps to Guantanamo Bay. In an assemblage that resembles an artillery shell, Anzio (2003), made from materials leftover from when he was a professional lamp designer, Moss has collaged mementos from his war experience: a letter from his mother, a patch spelling out A-N-Z-I-O, a photograph of the German howitzer that ran on a railroad track, currency from the occupation used in Italy and a photo of his brother. The work is titled after the beachhead where, despite being a combat engineer, as a newly arrived soldier he had to replace combat troops in a flooded foxhole in the winter of 1944. Another work, GI Joe (2012), depicts a tall and lanky figure in relief, made up of fragments and with a skull-like face, at the ready with his helmet and rifle. Moss’s unit arrived in Europe on August 15, 1944, for Operation Dragoon—the Allied invasion of Southern France. Months later, not far from the front, in the forests of the Vosges Mountains, Moss built what were called corduroy roads—“trees that they knock down to make a roadway so it’s very bumpy to the front,” he has explained. That’s when he saw dead soldiers on the back of an open track—a traumatic memory that lingers to this day and which Moss has said is the “essence of the front for me.” During those final months of the war, thousands of enemy soldiers were captured. That time is reflected in The Prisoner (1991), a carved wood piece with a hand-drawn and painted bandana covering the eyes. The base of the head is carved wood covered with sheet metal, a material the artist frequently employs and which is soft and malleable, ready to be hammered or molded. About the artist Born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in 1923, to immigrant parents—Isadore Moskowitz, a clothing maker and store owner born in Russia, and Josephine Goldsmith Moskowitz, who was born in Romania—Jay Moss attended the High School of Industrial Art (later the High School of Art and Design), where he studied graphic arts, three-dimensional design, display and studio drawing. The family first lived over the tailor shop and later moved to Flatbush and Greenpoint before settling in Jackson Heights, Queens. Moss was drafted into the army in 1943 after working as a page at CBS, and trained as a combat engineer in Fort Belvoir, VA. His unit, the 36th Engineer Regiment, traveled through North Africa before arriving in early 1944 at Anzio, a key campaign of the Allied forces on the Italian coast. After Italy, he was stationed in Marseille and on the French front in the Vosges Mountains on the eastern border with Germany. Moss attended the Art Students League as a benefit of the GI Bill, studying under José de Creeft, Morris Kantor and M. Peter Piening. A mahogany head he carved while a student at the League was exhibited at Jacques Seligmann & Company in 1947. Moss also received a sculpture prize at the Nassau County Art Association in the 1960s. He was head of NBC television’s art department where he worked for 12 years and then was the owner-designer of a company that made decorative mirrors and wall pieces. After selling the company, he worked as a design consultant and lighting product designer. He also taught lighting product design at the Parsons School of Design and television graphic arts at the RCA Institute. All the while, he worked at his passion, sculpting in the basement studio of his family’s Long Island home and at their second home in Stockbridge, MA. Moss has worked both figuratively and abstractly, creating forms using a table saw and chiseling a variety of woods that he then assembles with other materials, including lead, metal and cloth. Moss has had two previous solo exhibitions, at Manhattan College in 2014 and the Historic Wells Gallery in Lenox, MA, in 2001. In 2008 he and his wife, Sabina, who have two sons, moved to Riverdale, where Moss continues his artistic practice.

    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.

York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence

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

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

In four summer sketching trips, three of which explored Long Island, Tile Club artists created plein air works of picturesque subjects, exploring the concept of working outdoors that was then transforming artistic practice in Europe. This exhibition features tiles, drawings, sculpture, and prints that document the life and times of this lively group. This exhibition has been organized by the Chazen Museum of Art, University of Wisconsin-Madison, in cooperation with The Heckscher Museum of Art.

    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.

    Erosion: Works by Leonard Ursachi - Derfner Judaica Museum
    Through November 18, 2018 - Bronx

    Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, Erosion: Works by Leonard Ursachi on view in the Derfner Judaica Museum and grounds from July 15–November 18, 2018. A reception and artist’s talk will be held on Sunday, October 7, 2018, from 1:30–3 p.m. in the Museum, located at 5901 Palisade Avenue in the Riverdale section of The Bronx. This event is free and open to the public. R.S.V.P. 718.581.1596 or [email protected] Photo I.D. required for entry at all times. In this exhibition featuring an outdoor sculpture, installation work, and related maquettes and drawings, Leonard Ursachi addresses themes of environmental and social crises caused by manmade events and reflects on how the destruction of natural resources is intimately interconnected with the effacement of human history and culture. Central to the show will be a new outdoor sculpture created for the exhibition—an iteration of Ursachi’s What a Wonderful World series. The large-scale work is on view in the sculpture garden on the Hebrew Home’s majestic 32-acre property overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. Carved in Styrofoam and covered in Styrocrete, pigments, non-toxic tar paint and 23-karat gold leaf, What a Wonderful World (2018) touches on the inextricable link between profitability and the destruction of the environment. The expanses of 23-karat gold leaf applied to the roughly textured, “tarred” oceans reference a global, often wealth-driven disregard for the impact of environmental choices. The continents, on the other hand, appear vast and devoid of life, signifying a stripping away of natural resources. Still, Ursachi’s vision implies hope: the sculpture’s egg shape may be read as the enduring, if fragile, potential for life. Inside the Museum will be a complementary display of drawings as well as maquettes in a variety of materials, including 23-karat gold, cast urethane resin, Styrofoam, concrete, cast aluminum and marble. Also included in the exhibition is Ursachi’s installation Rise and Shine (2010), a multi-media work that addresses the disappearance of the Romanian island of Ada Kaleh, which was submerged in the Danube River in 1970 by Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceau?escu in order to build a hydroelectric plant. Inside an aquarium-like receptacle, a model of the island cast from translucent urethane resin is lit from below, alternately drowned and resuscitated as water continuously rises and falls. Ursachi based the island’s form on Ada Kaleh, the rich history of which dates back at least four centuries, having been annexed at various times by the Habsburgs, Serbs and Ottomans. Under Communist Romania, Ada Kaleh was home to a vibrant Muslim community and such historic structures as the Ada Kaleh mosque (built in 1903 on the site of a former monastery), catacombs and bazaar. The island was a popular vacation destination during the Communist period, when Romania’s heavily-guarded and insular borders prevented its own citizens from leaving the country. Ursachi visited Ada Kaleh with his family in 1968, returning with the only souvenir available at the time—an officially stamped, government-issued postcard. A reproduction of this postcard and a photograph of the artist and his brother visiting Ada Kaleh as children are on view with Rise and Shine. According to Ursachi: “In contrast to the Communist grayness that muffled the rest of Romania, Ada Kaleh was an explosion of color and noise, and home to an active Muslim community that had settled there during the Ottoman Empire.” Rise and Shine addresses the disastrous effect such industrial projects have on human culture, displacing entire populations and literally washing away layers of history. The rise and fall of the water, which submerges and reveals the resin island, both engages environmental themes and reflects the unchecked destruction that can occur under tyranny. Ceau?escu’s rule was one of the most brutal in the Eastern Bloc, with his secret police force routinely torturing and imprisoning suspected dissenters and political enemies. Ursachi was arrested for attempting to escape Romania by swimming across the Danube—near the spot where Ada Kaleh once stood—to reach Yugoslavia in 1978. His second attempt to defect, in 1980, was successful, and he was granted political asylum in France where he spent five years. He came to the United States via Canada and settled in New York in 1987. About the Artist Leonard Ursachi is a Romanian-born artist. He grew up under a dictatorship from which he defected and spent years border-hopping before settling in New York. His work reflects our contemporary world of porous borders, vulnerable shelters, and mutating identities. His sculptures and installations use architectural references as tropes for systems that enclose and exclude, protect and reject. Ursachi’s work is often site-specific, with the physical, historical and cultural aspects of the site informing the artist’s concept and use of materials. About Hebrew Home at Riverdale As a member of the American Alliance of Museums, the Hebrew Home at Riverdale by RiverSpring Health is committed to publicly exhibiting its art collection throughout its 32-acre campus, including the Derfner Judaica Museum and a sculpture garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades.

    Tri-Spy Tours: Walk or Bike - Three Village Historical Society
    Through November 23, 2018 - Setauket-East Setauket

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

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

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

    Toward A Concrete Utopia: Architecture In Yugoslavia, 1948–1980 - The Museum of Modern Art
    Through January 13, 2019 - Manhattan

    Situated between the capitalist West and the socialist East, Yugoslavia's architects responded to contradictory demands and influences, developing a postwar architecture both in line with and distinct from the design approaches seen elsewhere in Europe and beyond. The architecture that emerged—from International Style skyscrapers to Brutalist "social condensers"—is a manifestation of the radical diversity, hybridity, and idealism that characterized the Yugoslav state itself. Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980 introduces the exceptional work of socialist Yugoslavia's leading architects to an international audience for the first time, highlighting a significant yet thus-far understudied body of modernist architecture, whose forward-thinking contributions still resonate today.

    Constantin Brancusi Sculpture - The Museum of Modern Art
    Through February 24, 2019 - Manhattan

    Poet Erza Pound spoke of artist Constantin Brancusi's work as providing "the master keys to the world of form." Over a career that spanned half a century, Brancusi's innovations transformed sculpture as it had been known, and influenced generations of artists to come. After moving to Paris in 1904 from his native Romania, Brancusi affected the appearance of a Romanian peasant—a long beard, work shirt, and sandals—while embedding himself in avant-garde art circles. He soon began pushing modernist sculpture to the threshold of abstraction, developing a new, simplified vocabulary of graceful crescents, gleaming ovoids, and rough-hewn blocks that often evoked rather than resembled the things named in their titles, such as Bird in Space or Fish. He put the natural properties of his materials on display, carving directly into wood and stone and polishing metal to high reflectivity. The bases for his sculptures were often built of stacked elements—wood cubes, cylindrical slices, pyramidal blocks, or cruciform stones—becoming an integral component of the work itself and hinting at the possibility of infinite rearrangement, an idea that would prove fertile in future decades.

    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.
