Most have heard of the academic summer slip, but did you know that summer can set adolescents back socially and emotionally too? Without the structure of school, teens can experience increased isolation, frustration, a lack of motivation, and a generally low mood for those already susceptible to depression. Academically, students lose on average two months of reading skills and 2.6 months of math skills over the summer. Join Fusion Academy Woodbury and Dr. Tim R. Thayne of Homeward Bound in a very important conversation to learn how you can prevent the social, emotional, and academic setbacks your teen may be susceptible to this summer.

Prurience­ makes its US debut at Works & Process at the Guggenheim following a sold-out run at the Southbank Centre in London. After interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, British writer and performer Christopher Green presents an immersive theater experience inviting audiences to attend a fictional self-help group that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed. Questioning the side effects of porn consumption, Green asks audiences to consider if society is in the grip of an actual addiction or a moral panic, through increasingly distorting layers of reality and theatricality. Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs. Praise for Prurience The Times (UK): "A disorientating, provocative experience. . . . Theatrically the piece is audacious, springing a series of head-spinning surprises. This is the kind of art that leaves its mark on you. Unnerving, and uncomfortably compelling." Finalist, TBC Award (for productions that defy traditional categories), The Offies (The Off West End Theatre Awards), London This program takes place in The Wright restaurant at the Guggenheim and has open seating. $45, $40 members and Friends of Works & Process. House seats may be available for $1,000+ Friends of Works & Process. On a limited basis, house seats may be released to the public before performances at ticket prices of $90/$80 members.

Dan Auerbach & The Easy Eye Sound Revue featuring Robert Finley, Shannon Shaw - The Capitol Theatre March 28, 2018 - Port Chester

For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. Now, on their fourth studio album Crush, drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick "Jesus" Coomes, keyboardist Neal Evans, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet player Eric Bloom deepen that sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show. Produced by Lettuce and Co- Produced, recorded/mixed by Joel Hamilton at Brooklyn's Studio G, Crush first came to life on the road, with the band developing new material and testing it out live as they toured. "We've all noticed that our music goes into a lot of different directions onstage, and we wanted to capture that in a way that we never really have before," says Coomes, who names classic psychedelia and '90s hip-hop among Lettuce's key inspirations on Crush. "It's definitely more wide-open in terms style, but it still stays true to the funk." The follow-up to 2012's Fly, Crush finds Lettuce brilliantly infusing their psychedelic and hip-hop sensibilities into bass-heavy funk. With its spidery guitar work and hypnotic beats, "Phyllis" is a delicately sprawling epic that embodies what Deitch refers to as "a chill-hop vibe that's kind of the flip-side of all that powerful uptempo funk that people might expect from us." On "Get Greasy," Lettuce give a nod to the groove-fueled EDM subgenre known as future funk, building off its highly danceable rhythm with a blissfully loose and horn-laced arrangement. And on "He Made a Woman Out of Me," guest vocalist Alecia Chakour lends her bluesy growl to a scorching take on Bobbie Gentry's 1970 country-soul classic. Whether paying homage to Led Zeppelin on the fiery and guitar-driven "Silverdome" or delivering a deeply riveting and richly textured hip-hop medley with "Oresteia," Lettuce maneuver through Crush's kaleidoscopic sound with sophisticated ease and powerful synergy. "More so than any of the records we've done before, this album is very much about the improvised grooves and improvised solos," says Krasno. "Instead of going at it like, 'Here's a melody, now here's a guitar solo, here's another melody, here's a sax solo,' everyone's leaning on each other in a way that's completely unspoken. It's all of us moving as one unit and creating this new sound together." According to Lettuce, that sense of unity and togetherness has much to do with a camaraderie that's only intensified over the lifespan of the band. Formed in 1992, when several band members attended a summer program at Boston's Berklee College of Music as teenagers, Lettuce was founded on a shared love of legendary funk artists like Earth, Wind & Fire and Tower of Power. After returning to Berklee as undergrads in 1994, Lettuce started playing in local clubs and steadily built up a following that soon extended to cities across the country and then throughout the world. Releasing their studio debut Outta Here in 2002 and its follow-up album Rage! in 2009, the band dedicated the coming years to balancing their frequent touring with involvement in a host of other musical endeavors (including Evans and Krasno's role as founding members of acclaimed soul/jazz trio Soulive). In recent years, Lettuce have watched their fanbase expand as they've hit bigger and bigger stages and earned their name as a can't-miss festival act. And in making Crush, the band had no trouble harnessing the spirit of their explosive live show. "Some of these shows we've played over the past couple years have been so amazing, it's like you go home a different person," says Coomes. "I'm sure remembering those moments in our minds and our hearts helped bring out something special when we were recording these new songs." So while Crush offers everything from all-out party jams to headphone-ready journeys into space funk, each track was born from an unabashed joy and love of live performance. "That energy we get when it's prime time and we're about to go onstage and we're just excited beyond belief—that all came out on this new album," says Deitch. "There's a feeling that the band is rising, and it's a really beautiful thing."

Bio by Buck Meek (Big Thief) & Mt. Davidson (Twain): Have you ever… ...faced an impossible question, to be answered at once by a kaleidoscope of wind, diffusing your bewilderment into thousands of spinning bulbs? ...awoken to hear the person sleeping beside you speaking a language they do not speak in their waking life? ? ...felt your legs possessed, to throw you across the room in shapes? ? ...lost your heart, only to find it on the bank of a cold spring, in the hands of a filling station attendant, or in the dust swimming through the light of your bedroom window? ?Have you ever listened to Twain? "A lonely day, I went outside to smoke awhile, and think about a picture in a book: He was laying in the grass in his suit, as the angler posed in pursuit of the fish" ?For the past decade or so, Mt. Davidson has cultivated his songs and sounds, attempting to create a bridge, a meeting place, between the terrestrial and the mystic. He is a ponderous and delicate sort of creature, short and vaguely leonine, who has spent most of his young life abiding in the midlands of transcendence. "Oh to be there, the smell of her hair, the deer swimming through the watery woods, life won't last long for those who hate it, for those who love it, it lingers on like a dream" ?Following its quiet self-release in 2014, his fifth and most recent LP, Life Labors in the Choir, has steadily gained devoted listeners throughout the globe and continues to blossom today. The album describes a marked evolution in an alluring yet strange and hesitant discography. Progressing from the bashfully childlike sounds of 2005's Madeline, (now lost), through self-constructed garage multi-track tangles of Sleeping Tree (2007) and Almanack (2008), we hear the progress of a young man struggling to free himself from the shackles of depression and neurosis. In 2010's Love is All Around, a distinct breakthrough can be felt in the form of a question that challenges the foundation of the doubt and fear running through the early music. This sudden evolution is in no small part owing to the addition of two musicians - Peter Pezzimenti (drums and vibes) and Ken Woodward (basses) - and a sound engineer - Adrian Olsen. The music really began to breathe. ?"Free'd from doubt, my cigarette went out, the sun came out and warmed up the house, oh to be fainting into that painting, as I wrap up the tune and bring it to you"

Miami rapper Sylvan LaCue, formerly known as Quest, has been steadily building a loyal fan-base over the years with unparrallaleled skills on the mic, a forward-thinking sound, and a humble perspective. LaCue left his first major mark on the music industry with "Searching Sylvan" mixtape in the fall of 2014. The project was widely regarded as one of the best narratives to be told in rap that year, receiving praise from HotNewHipHop, Huffington Post, Complex, XXL and more. SS touched on everything from Lacue's finanancial struggles and family battles to the rap game and the start of a new love. Rising lyricist Akinyemi [ah-kin-yeh-me] hails from Queens Village, NY, grasping the attention and challenging the minds of his audience while aiming to connect deep lyrical sentiments of hip-hop with unorthodox samples. From the meaning of his name ("fated to be a warrior" in Yoruba), the Nigerian 22-year old embodies his inner warrior in music as a determined independent artist while balancing his full-time studies. Akinyemi's sound mirrors hip-hop legends such as A Tribe Called Quest as well as newer ambiances like Mick Jenkins, while creating original and experimental melodies.

Michael Mayo began forging his musical identity long before he hit the stage. The son of two successful musicians, the Los Angeles native grew up just a little more than 20 feet from the likes of Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Earth Wind and Fire and Stevie Wonder. This proximity helped Mayo create a musical path centered around the innovative elements of jazz. After receiving his Bachelors from the New England Conservatory of Music, Mayo attended the acclaimed Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, only the third vocalist to be accepted into the 20-year-old program, where he learned from Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Luciana Souza, among many others. Mayo, who recently moved to New York City, is a veteran international performer. His highlights include singing at the White House for First Lady Michelle Obama on International Jazz Day 2016, the Kennedy Center for both the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program and Renée Fleming's American Voices Festival in 2013, as well as the Panama Jazz Festival. Whether he is performing with a full big band, a rhythm section or alone with a looper pedal, Mayo's classic vocal style commands the attention of listeners worldwide

Cbe Seminar - Understanding And Controlling Protein Structure And Function At Interfaces - University at Buffalo March 28, 2018 - New York

Rational design of unique solvents and surfaces holds great potential for providing new ways to use biomolecules in engineering applications, which range from biocatalysis in ionic liquids (ILs) to surface-driven self-assembly of nano/bio materials that mimic nature. Computational models such as molecular dynamics (MD) can connect the atomic scale to the mesoscale for a wide range of problems but many challenges still limit wide-ranging use of these tools to their full potential. The theme of this talk will be to share recent advances in fundamental science and engineering of interfacial phenomena of biomolecules in the context of our group's efforts to address fundamental challenges preventing wider use of MD-based methods (e.g. timescale limitations in MD) The first part of this talk will highlight how we are using simulations to understand the dominant driving forces that lead to unique orientation and conformation of peptides at the bio/nano interface with an illustration of how the surface/peptide interface strongly dictates the dominant contributions to binding energetics. I will also discuss the challenge of accurately predicting biomolecule structure at interfaces and how a marriage of simulation and sparse experimental data can provide deep insight. Following this I will share several examples related to the formation of biosilica in two systems: peptides based on marine diatoms, and diatom mimics that use simple leucine-lysine (LK) repeat peptides.

El Sueno (The Dream): a Reading of a New Play by John Mccaffrey and Mark Singer - The Cornelia Street Cafe March 28, 2018 - New York

Columbian cocaine king Pablo Escobar is struggling with a recurring dream: he is a cat on a high red roof, reading a letter from his lover before falling to his death. To help make sense of the dream, he turns to Miami-based psychologist Dr. Ronald Splat. In this dark comedy, Don Pablo and Dr. Splat work to uncover the subconscious underpinnings of the cartel leader's disruptive slumber. Loosely inspired by the Netflix show 'Narcos,' this one-act play is hosted by local access TV legend Charlie Ward, and has nothing in common with Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard.

Performing on this unique instrument, Stickney will debut the world-premiere of "Peripheral Vision, Escape Routes" on theremin, a compilation of several lullabies, songs, and daydreams, with special guests Danny Tunick on vibraphone + marimba and Stuart Popejoy on piano & keyboard. Stickney is best known for her ability to use processing effects to coax the effect of a full orchestra from her theremin, and performs these two pieces as meditations catered to maximizing the beauty of the instrument. "The theremin isn't an instrument that lends itself to hero worship, but ever since we saw Pamelia Stickney pluck an astonishing walking-bass line out of thin air, we've been genuflecting with reckless abandon. Novelty value aside, Kurstin's gift on her wonky instrument is profound and generous." — Time Out New York

Lezlie Harrison Sings from the Great American Soulbook - Smoke Jazz and Supper Club March 28, 2018 - New York

Over the last several years Lezlie Harrison's burnished, soulful alto and striking beauty and distinctive blend of jazz, classic 70's soul, and original music has become a fixture on the New York jazz scene. Lezlie draws upon the deepest foundations of her musical orientation: the soul music that surrounded her during formative years in Harlem, the gospel music she sang as a child in her grandfather's Methodist church in North Carolina. The Great American Soul Book will feature songs written by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan.

"Allen's control of the timbers, from guttural moans to clarion peals, and his ability to squeeze whimpers out of brass and hurl them at the listener, marks him as a horn man to watch." W. Royal Stokes-The Washington Post "...Bracingly vivid trumpeter..." Howard Mandel-The Village Voice (N.Y.C.) "His conception and phrasing recall Lee Morgan's command of the latin idiom." Keith Raether-The News Tribune (Seattle) "...he screams and screeches, taunts and teases, growls and groans, sneaks and snakes." Gil Sokolow-The I.A.J.R.C. Journal "A fullness replete with soft tone-edges and great leaping ability makes Allen interesting and worth a listen." Andy Bartlett-Cadence Magazine "Allen's trumpet and flugelhorn playing is marked by a playful inventiveness underscored by a slightly husky, almost vocal, tone and use of such swing trumpet strategies as smears, growls and glisses." George Kanzler-The Star Ledger (Newark, N.J.) "Allen displays wit, charm, and true soul amidst the bristling themes and exposes fine sensitivity in the more harmonious passages." Sid Gribetz-JazzTimes

Three–time GRAMMY Award nominee Ravi Coltrane has worked as a sideman with such leaders as Elvin Jones, Jack DeJohnette, and Geri Allen; recorded six noteworthy albums as a leader, and founded the independent record label RKM. This week, he brings his celebrated trio to the stand for six celebratory nights of creative improvisation. His special guests reflect a middle point between his own work and the work of his father, the legendary John Coltrane: Tomoki Sanders is the son of Pharaoh Sanders, one of the elder Coltrane's most celebrated collaborators, Brandee Younger shares the chosen instrument of Ravi's mother Alice Coltrane, and Ralph Alessi is one of his closest musical partners. "When you experience events like Coltrane's set, you wonder how one can ever replicate the live buzz of that room on record. It's done time and again, of course, but Wednesday night's Coltrane set really drove home how sensational live jazz is when it's performed winningly. At its best, live jazz is one of the most wondrous highs in the world; Coltrane and company proved it many times over." (San Francisco Chronicle) Ravi Coltrane - saxophone Tomoki Sanders - saxophone Dezron Douglas - bass Allan Mednard - drums

Multifaceted Emmet Cohen, called "a master-in-the-making" by the New York City Jazz Record, is one of his generation's pivotal artistic figures. Downbeat praised the "nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary" he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences at what he terms "the deepest level of humanity and individuality." He has appeared as a leader or sideman at the Monterey, Newport, North Sea, Bern, and Edinburgh jazz festivals, among others, and is currently a Hammond B-3 organist-in-residence at Smoke on Wednesday nights at 11:30PM. Cohen has performed, recorded or collaborated with Christian McBride, Herlin Riley Kurt Elling, Billy Hart, Jimmy Heath, Brian Lynch, Ali Jackson, Lea DeLaria, and many others.

Disorder marks a few milestones for the band Growing; it is their ninth full length release, in the fifteenth year of their band as well as their first record in almost six years. Though this is their first record in quite some time, this by no means a reunion record. When asked, Joe DeNardo stated "We never 'stopped' doing Growing, it's just that it was tough living on two different coasts. We work kinda slow so I think it just took us a while to adjust to how to make it work with the distances. As Kevin kind of built up his home studio in Olympia over the years, it got to a place where we couldn't NOT use it for Growing - it's such a great isolated spot to hunker down and chisel out some tunes. " With an entire country between the them, Kevin Doria has been focusing his energy on his Total Life project, releasing a handful of releases and touring with Fuck Buttons, GodSpeed You Black Emperor and a host of others. DeNardo has spent the last few years making various music-themed films and performing under the Ornament moniker. ?

A 5-piece alt-country act based out of Westchester and Brooklyn. The band came together in 2015 and, after cutting our teeth at gigs around New York, released our debut album Juno on June 9, 2017.

Simply put: we are drunken ghost country

GARDEN ROOM (ENTER by way of 239 Thompson Street) Mystery School is getting back together this Lent, with the Stained Glass Series! Each week, we will take a text from the Judeo-Christian tradition(s) and surround it with resonating texts from other traditions. Like stained glass, the different shades and colors of these texts will form a larger, more complex picture when we pour light through them all together. We'll be looking at themes like the victory of the weak over the strong, human agency (and its limits), end-times theologies, and depictions of womanhood -- in sources as varied as the Tao Te Ching, Norse Mythology, the Qur'an, The Art of War, pop culture, and the Bible!

With over 150 million global album sales, he’s the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in history. He has been inducted into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he inspired the Tony Award-winning play Movin’ Out, and he recently received the Kennedy Center Honor for ‘The Piano Man’. That rare artist whose timeless work is increasingly beloved by long-term fans and discovered by new ones every day, seeing him light up his favorite stage is a definitive live music experience.

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

Join musician Jackie Greene and animator Bill Plympton for the world premiere of their new animated short film, The Modern Lives, followed by a live performance by Greene and a Q&A with both artists. It's a perfect match of fiercely independent artists: Jackie Greene, the rocking singer/songwriter hailed by The New York Times as the "Prince of Americana" and Bill Plympton, the Oscar-nominated "king of indie animation". Greene has always had a knack for capturing the human experience in all its messy, emotional complexity in song, and Plympton is well known for coupling his hand-drawn animation and twisted sense of humor with explorations of adult themes, relationships, and sexuality. Together, they've created The Modern Lives, an animated short film that takes you on the road from a tripped-out alien invaded Times Square to the deep roots of the American South. Along the way there are encounters with Elvis, Satan, Willie Dixon, an Alabama Queen.... and so much more!

Balancing Feminine – Masculine Energies Inside of Us with Siberian shaman Diana Suemi - Tibet House US March 28, 2018 - New York

The idea that we all have masculine and feminine energies within ourselves is not a new concept. It has nothing to do with gender or sexual preference. Regardless of gender, each of us contains masculine and feminine energy. There are lots of people who are unable to use the power we were given by Nature. If we overuse our masculine side, we may feel tired, stressed or unloved as a result. When we feel our lives are under our control, too much in our heads and not enough in our bodies, it means we most likely need a re-fuel of the feminine side. My purpose is to show you how to explore the dual sex power in you. Balancing Yin -Yang is your key to greater health and your help to avoid mistakes in relationship.

If there's one thing that unites all New Yorkers it's a hatred of all things New York. Let's face it, those who don't live here are not likely to commiserate with us. The rent is too damn high to deal with train shutdowns, lost tourists, and shitty roommates. Not to mention—actual shit. You'll never know what you'll see on the sidewalks, and there are some things that just cannot be unseen. Yet, the longer we live here, the easier it gets and we learn to roll with all the punches this city throws our way. So, in the spirit of learning to live with some sense of dignity, I Live Here Now brings together your favorite city-dwelling comedians you've seen on Conan, The Late Show, and Comedy Central to explore why misery loves company—as they come together to share their experiences living in New York City. Because, whether you believe it or not, we've all come to adjust to this love-hate relationship we have with this nasty city. And, deep inside we know we cannot see a future anywhere else. Especially LA. I Live Here Now is a stand-up comedy show held on the last Wednesday of every month at Wicked Willy's and brought to you by New York Weekly.

Want to confess? If not, how about hearing others do it? On a stage. Join some of New York's best performers and storytellers for a comedy show about how belief runs deep in everyone's lives. Religion guides some on how to live, who to marry, afterlife planning, and decides whether or not you can be president. So let's all get together to see some good folks divulge personal anecdotes about the impact of religion on their lives. This show is not aimed at converting, convincing, or destroying, just relating. Whether it's positive, negative, or somewhere in between (purgatory?) this is a show for anyone who wants some catharsis in a world where everything you do seems wrong.

Program: W. F. Bach - Sonata in Canon no.1 (c 1720) Stefano Gervasoni - Folia for violin (2011-2012) Bach/Gervasoni - Two-Part Inventions (1723/2009) Gervasoni - Ravine for flute (2000) Gervasoni - Due Voci for flute and violin (1991) Roy Amotz, flute Elissa Cassini, violin From J. S. Bach to Stefano Gervasoni, this bold juxtaposition of historical extremes offers an innovative exploration of the similarities and contrasts between two treble instruments. Central to the program are Gervasoni's colorful and imaginative transcriptions of Bach's Inventions. Both keyboard lines are re-written, using both the violin and the viola in combination with all the flutes, including piccolo and bass flute. From wood to wind or bow to breath, this fertile opposition urges the performers to expand their expressive ranges, seeking a new unity of sound both complex and beautiful. The re-invention of instrumental roles and the reconsideration of the very notions of tradition and innovation leave the listener with the understanding of music's inherent ability to re-invent itself.

Immigration Booth is a chord-less quartet led by German-born bassist Johannes Felscher, who has been a part of the New York music scene for nearly a decade. The group is presenting its debut album 'Hinterm Spiegel' as well as brand-new compositions to a New York audience for the first time after multiple tours across Europe. It merges hypnotic loops with a faint sense of melancholy and eruptive dialogues between the feisty rhythm section and the unusual yet luring combination of lead voices: bass clarinet and alto clarinet / alto saxophone. "Full of surprising turns, inventive juxtapositions and thoughtfully minimalist layering. A very strong and sophisticated debut." (Westfalische Rundschau)

Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery - Ways of Kneeling: Artist Talk by Young Min Moon - Staller Center For the Arts March 28, 2018 - Stony Brook

Please join us for an Artist Talk by Young Min Moon on Wednesday, March 28 at 1 pm in the Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery, Staller Center for the Arts. The talk, entitled "Ways of Kneeling," focuses on the artist's repeated imagery of a back view of a kneeling man in a suit. Moon states, "These images are based on a significant experience from my upbringing in South Korea: Jesa, a Confucian ritual performed as a remembrance of spirits of ancestors and funerary rite of mourning for the deceased. Growing up in the South Korean military regime of the 1980s in which violence was a norm everywhere, including classrooms, the austere moments of silence during prostration have become one of the most important memories of mine."

From first draft to final draft, we require strategies for seeing the whole poem, both its full potential for content and its most satisfying form. We require, as Charles Olson said, the intense perception of the first draft—to "see" not only the spark but all of the light that makes a poem glow. Then we need to "re-see" the poem, practicing the kind of deep revision that leads us to reconsider everything from word choice and vivid image to metaphoric subtext, grammatical pattern, and inner music of the poem. We'll use poems from such poets as Anne Carson, C. D. Wright, Yusuf Komunyakaa, Sharon Olds, Marilyn Nelson, Mark Doty, Rigoberto González, Ada Limón, Tyehimba Jess, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Arthur Sze, Reginald Shepherd, Tony Hoagland, Jane Hirshfield, Khaled Mattawa, and Naomi Shihab Nye to examine specific technical issues, but we'll use your own poems as the focus and force of workshop discussion. In addition, we'll consider writing exercises that might steer you toward new strategies and discoveries in making a poem.

A startlingly original novel that recalls the unsettling visual worlds of Cindy Sherman and David Lynch and the writing of Angela Carter and Haruki Murakami, The Natashas follows two people in Paris: beatrice, a solitary jazz singer, and César, a lonely Mexican actor. Both are haunted by the specters of ghosts or alter egos, as well as a chorus of young women who all share the same name: Natasha.

By his ninth solo album, The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns, you'd figure he would have slipped into a comfortable pattern, but Mike Doughty is not that kind of artist. The former frontman of Soul Coughing is obsessively, constantly driven to sound new. The elegant, charming album swerves between lonesome country influences, and trap beats. The title is pulled from a WTF! podcast, on which Doughty's old buddy Marc Maron used the phrase, somehow, in reference to chewing nicotine gum, in his struggle to quit smoking. The two go back to the East Village comedy scene of the late '90s, so when Doughty asked Maron if he could use the line as an album title, the comic responded, "Use it and throw me a bone."

Bayerisches Staatsorchester - Carnegie Hall - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage March 28, 2018 - New York

The Guardian called Kirill Petrenko, the Bayerische Staatsoper's music director, "a conductor of huge talent and a person of absolute seriousness and complete commitment to the music he's performing, as well as a musician of deep humility." They also praised the "incandescent intensity he brings to his performances." Petrenko is at the helm of the legendary orchestra in his eagerly awaited Carnegie Hall concert debut.

It is an odd human instinct to believe that if we don't give voice to what ails us, it will simply disappear. In A Map of Virtue, the play considers where "it" all goes. Split into seven parts: Curiosity, Loyalty, Empathy, Honesty, Integrity, Love and Intuition, the story unfolds from the perspective of a bird statue with ominous beginnings and by the protagonists in an interview-like style. With the use of song and deeply poetic language, the playwright takes us into the lives of Mark and Sarah, who are marked by an inability to give voice to their own pain and linked by a kind of chilling inner darkness, a chance encounter, and a bird. Erin Courtney is a Guggenheim Fellow, Obie Award-winning playwright and Assistant Professor in the MFA Playwriting program at Brooklyn College.

Country singer Laura Cantrell takes the stage at Sid Gold's Request Room for new series of monthly shows returning to Sid Gold's in September. Cantrell and a small combo will perform songs from her repertoire and along with special guests, explore country songs and sounds from different regions of the United States. Click here for advance tickets! Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Cantrell first gained notice as the host of the Radio Thrift Shop on Jersey City's WFMU, where she often mused on country music's durability in big cities like New York. "From the moment I first stepped into Sid Gold's Request Room, I've been meditating on a country show for that room. I love the intimacy of the space, the prominence of the piano and the focus on songs, delivered in their elemental form. I'm looking forward to curating a series based on the different regions of the U.S., from where country music flourished in its early years to where it bubbled under and reinvented itself up until the current day.

Re-Inventing Bach: Roy Amotz, flute and Elissa Cassini, violin - Italian Academy, Columbia University March 28, 2018 - New York

W. F. Bach - Sonata in Canon no.1 (c 1720) Stefano Gervasoni - Folia for violin (2011-2012) Bach/Gervasoni - Two-Part Inventions (1723/2009) Gervasoni - Ravine for flute (2000) Gervasoni - Due Voci for flute and violin (1991) From J. S. Bach to Stefano Gervasoni, this bold juxtaposition of historical extremes offers an innovative exploration of the similarities and contrasts between two treble instruments. Central to the program are Gervasoni's colorful and imaginative transcriptions of Bach's Inventions. Both keyboard lines are re-written, using both the violin and the viola in combination with all the flutes, including piccolo and bass flute. From wood to wind or bow to breath, this fertile opposition urges the performers to expand their expressive ranges, seeking a new unity of sound both complex and beautiful. The re-invention of instrumental roles and the reconsideration of the very notions of tradition and innovation leave the listener with the understanding of music's inherent ability to re-invent itself. Described as "truly communicative" (The New York Times) and as "an impeccable and powerful soloist" (Neue Musik Zeitung), Franco-American violinist Elissa Cassini's performances span a wide and eclectic repertoire, exploring the violin's full expressive range, from Baroque to Contemporary. While obtaining her master's at the Juilliard School, she won the Artists International Prize for her Weill Hall Debut in 2009. Praised by critics as "Phenomenal" and "breath-taking", flutist Roy Amotz performs worldwide as a soloist and in various chamber music formations as well as in the orchestral field. His range of musical activity includes early music, classical and romantic repertoire as well as contemporary music. Mr. Amotz won first prizes in the International Flute Competition in Volos, Greece (2007) and in the Pergamenschikov Competition in Berlin with "Trio Vis" in 2009.

Other Than Boston is an eclectic group of musicians from the inner City of Boston. The band was started in 2016 under the impression we would be spreading good vibes through music.

With a style The Sunday Times calls "catchy but complicated; a surprisingly rare combination," Julian Velard is piano-pop tunesmith recalling Stephen Sondheim or Randy Newman at the peak of their talents. With 4 albums of original material under his belt, he's toured internationally alongside the likes of Jamie Cullum, Paul Carrack, and Amy Macdonald. His quirky, native new york, piano-man sound has found its largest audience in Holland, where he headlined Amsterdam's legendary venue, Paradiso. His comedic timing and musical stylings have made him a regular on The Howard Stern Show and NPR's Ask Me Another.

Orrin Evans epitomizes the Philly sound - powerful jazz feeling and groove coupled with exquisite touch. Accompanying him is the great Luques Curtis on bass and virtuostic Gene Jackson on drums.

Literary Partners Program: Arte de Pajaros: Art of Birds - Poetry of Pablo Neruda - Poets House - Elizabeth Kray Hall March 28, 2018 - New York

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), the Nobel Prize–winning Chilean poet, has been called "the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language." Nature is prominent in Neruda's poetry, and Art of Birds (1966) celebrates the special beauty of the birds of his native land. At the same time, the poems reflect a broad range of mood and feeling through themes of migration, exile, solitude, nature's cycle of birth/death/rebirth. This bi-lingual program features a selection of Pablo Neruda's bird poems from his collection, Arte de Pajaros: Art of Birds. Award-winning Mexican-American poet, Xánath Caraza reads the poems in their original Spanish and in English translation. Birdsong–inspired music for flute, some composed especially for the program, is interwoven with the poetry by flutists Jill Austen and guest, Kelly Cuevas.

Every Wednesday at 11:00, Matthew Tenenbaum will give you 3 minutes to tell jokes, curse, rant, read poetry (please don't read poetry) and drink booze. We're gonna have a real good time together.

We cannot stop time, but we can inhabit it.

On Wednesday, March 21, witness a performance from choreographer Zvi Gotheiner of ZviDance at either 6:00 PM, 6:45 PM, or 7:30 PM.

For over 40 years, Pentacle has served as a model for nonprofit administration, allowing artists to do what they do best—create art and engage with audiences. About the Artist Zvi Gotheiner was born and raised in kibbutz Mesilot in northern Israel. He began his artistic career as a violinist with the Young Kibbutzim Orchestra, where he attained the rank of soloist and concertmaster. He began dancing at age seventeen and soon after formed his first performance group. He joined the Bat-Sheva Dance Company after serving in the army. Zvi arrived in New York in 1978 on a dance scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and danced with the Joyce Trisler Dance Company and Feld Ballets/NY. After directing Tamar Ramle and the Jerusalem Tamar Dance Companies in Israel and the Israeli Chamber Dance Company in New York, he founded ZviDance in 1989. He has created more than twenty-five works for his company, among them Dabke, which was named by the New York Times as one of the ten best dance works of 2013. Zvi is a highly regarded ballet teacher, described by the New York Times as the "Zen Dance Master of New York." Most recently, Zvi received distinguished teaching awards from the American Dance Festival and the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center's Playing Field.

'Criminal', The Soft Moon's fourth studio album, is a confessional work. Through the stark lens of shame and guilt that has followed Luis Vasquez since a violent childhood growing up within the humming ambient sprawl of 80s Mojave Desert, here he documents the gut-wrenching sound of going to war with himself. Battling with his own sanity, self-hatred, insecurity, self-entitlement and grappling with the risk of these things transforming him into a person he despises, Vasquez has laid his feelings bare with this: his confession and most self-reflective work to date. "Guilt is my biggest demon and has been following me since childhood. Everything I do strengthens the narrative that I am guilty" Vasquez reflects. "The concept of 'Criminal' is a desperate attempt to find relief by both confessing to my wrongdoings and by blaming others for their wrongdoings that have affected me." 'Criminal' marks a striking and important chapter in his self-exploration, both artistically and emotionally. As a young musician living in Oakland, Vasquez began to try and process the narrative of his difficult upbringing veiled through musical exploration. Taking krautrock's motorik beats and Post-Punk deconstructions and honing them into a hushed percussive incantation, The Soft Moon's self-titled debut album took shape. The album was released in late 2010 by Captured Tracks and was praised by critics and emulated by contemporaries.

A special Passover family celebration. Enjoy the traditions and symbols of the holiday through songs, stories, and sensory exploration.

Treasure Of The Golden Condor. 1953. Written And Directed By Delmer Daves - The Museum of Modern Art March 28, 2018 - Manhattan

Treasure of the Golden Condor. 1953. USA. Written and directed by Delmer Daves. Based on the novel by Edison Marshall. With Cornel Wilde, Constance Smith, Anne Bancroft. 35mm. 93 min. Lusty swashbuckler Jean-Paul goes in search of Mayan treasure in Guatemala! Having been forced into bonded servitude by a reviled uncle, Jean-Paul is now determined to recover the long-lost family fortune. The 1953 New York Times review notes that the film is "punctuated with just enough period authenticity, (to) convey a relaxed adherence to realism not often found in this specie of film fare."

It was about 20 years ago when NPR's Morning Edition said: "It's not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it's hot." 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album Hot. Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band's critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable. By this time the group had already established a substantial live following across the country thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations. Hot wound up selling over 1.3 million copies. A newly re-mastered version of the album along with a bonus track: "The Puffer" returned to stores in July on Hollywood Records. Long out of print on vinyl, Hot has now made its glorious return to wax on 180-gram vinyl. In honor of the 20th Anniversary of Hot, the bands visionary creator Jimbo Mathus, along with founding member and partner Chris Phillips (Drums), have crafted a brand new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the bands unique musical flavor which owes its roots to that city.

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!

Brooklyn Bowl and Remember Jones present a celebration and re-creation of the entire groundbreaking 1970 live album and tour, MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN on Wednesday, March 28th.

Canadian singer, trumpeter, and songwriter Bria Skonberg is described by The Wall Street Journal as one of the "most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation." Recognized as one of "25 for the Future" by DownBeat magazine (Summer 2016), Skonberg is signed to Sony Music Masterworks' OKeh Records, and released her debut LP, simply titled BRIA, in 2016. The stunning album won the 2017 Canadian Juno Award from "Vocal Jazz Album" of the year. She will release her new album "With A Twist" on May 19th, 2017. Wielding a unique blend of modern-day pop sensibility and sizzling musicianship, Skonberg aims for a sense of allure on the new collection. She credits producer Matt Pierson with helping her create music that is both curious and exotic, playing with tension and storytelling. Elite jazz chops, artfully mixed with worldly rhythms and contemporary songwriting, result in a sophisticated pop sound closely resembling that of Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, and Harry Connick Jr.

Born March 19, 1919, pianist and composer Lennie Tristano has come to be considered one of the most influential jazz artists of the 1950s, as much for his performances and recordings, as for his unique approach to teaching improvisation in a manner that became a bridge from bebop to later styles. Tristano was also a regular at the original Birdland from 1949 through the early 1960s. For this celebration, Birdland brings together a group of jazz all-stars to explore Tristano's style, compositions, and influence.

Born in 1953 in Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Crenshaw learned to tune a guitar correctly at age ten and has been trying ever since. His first big break came in 1978 playing John Lennon in "Beatlemania", first as an understudy in New York, then in the West Coast company followed by a national touring company. Removing himself from that situation in Feb. 1980, Marshall settled in New York City. After crossing paths with the great and legendary Alan Betrock, Marshall recorded his debut single "Something's Gonna Happen" (for Betrock's Shake Records label), which led to a deal with Warner Bros. His debut album, Marshall Crenshaw, was acclaimed as a masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a singular songwriter, record maker, and guitarist. The album spawned the hit single "Someday, Someway," and other classics such as "(You're My) Favorite Waste of Time," "Whenever You're On My Mind" and "Cynical Girl." Over the course of a career that's spanned three decades, 13 albums, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, film and TV appearances (Buddy Holly in "La Bamba") and thousands of performances, Marshall Crenshaw's musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of artfulness, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base. Along with touring around the country and the occasional recording project, Marshall currently hosts his own radio show, "The Bottomless Pit", every Saturday at 10 PM on New York's WFUV. Other current projects include a documentary film-in progress about legendary record producer Tom Wilson. Says Crenshaw, "This is a road that I never imagined taking before, but it's been amazing and is going great.." "Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, he soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself." - Trouser Press

María M. Portuondo – American Convergence: Science and Technology in Colonial Latin America - CUNY Graduate Center March 28, 2018 - New York

Speaker: María M. Portuondo, Department Chair and Associate Professor of History of Science and Technology, Johns Hopkins University The essential backdrop of the history of the region we now call Latin America is the centuries-long process of negotiation between the different social, religious, cultural and political registers of the Indigenous, African and European peoples who came to inhabit the area. The resulting American scientific and technological convergence involved the combination and recombination of practices whose exact origins are difficult to trace. As in any other period of scientific and technological change, the solutions that emerged were driven by intellectual traditions, market demands, labor availability and economic paradigms. Yet in the case of the Americas, these solutions were often an amalgam of the knowledge, skills, traditions and expertise of the different cultural groups that came together, willingly or unwillingly, to the shores of the American continent. This talk proposes a framework for the study of the scientific and technological registers of the American convergence. It recognizes the hybrid, complex and local nature of the convergence and explores these through three kinds of human activities: learning, moving and making.

Great Shipwrecks of New York's 'Great' Lakes and The Hidden Hulks of New York Harbor Exhibits - Hudson River Park - Pier 25 March 29, 2018 - Tribeca

New York Sea Grant's Shipwrecks of New York's 'Great' Lakes makes its New York City debut and will remain at Lilac through July 4 before making a return appearance at the New York State Fair. This exhibit celebrates the work of marine archeologists and highlights wrecks in upstate lakes, not only Lakes Erie and Ontario but Lake George, Lake Champlain and others. It will be accompanied at Lilac by The Hidden Hulks of New York Harbor curated by Mary Habstritt with contributions from Norman Brouwer, Joan H. Geismar, Elizabeth Meade, Lynn Rakos, Margaret Stocker, and Gerald Weinstein. This new exhibit looks at how and why local archeologists and historians study the abandoned hulks of the harbor and features some of the well-known ship graveyards and hulls found along our shorelines including those found underground at the World Trade Center site. We'll also be screening the documentary Graves of Arthur Kill in the crew mess.

Following PUMPING IRON, now made famous as a chronicle of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, director George Butler turned his attention to women's bodybuilding, capturing it at a time when changes were afoot. Up until the early 1980s, bodybuilding found women bulking up only to a certain point - the feminine shape was still valued by judges, so going beyond that posed risks. But when Bev Francis began to compete, she pushed the limits on female musculature, ruffling some feathers in the established world of competition. PUMPING IRON II captures an interesting time and culture, bodies that are tanned to the max and glistening with grease. In addition to Bev Francis we get to know several contestant, including Rachel McLish, who embodies the feminine ideal in the sport, as well as another contestant who wants to succeed so she can make some money and her boyfriend can stop stripping.

Pedro Pablo "Pedrito" Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, Sept 12, 1973. He began his musical career at the age of 11, performing as vocalist and percussionist with such Cuban legends as Tata Guines and Munequitos de Matanzas. He was brought to Canada in 1998, by Jane Bunnett, to tour with her group, Spirits of Havana. His decision to remain in North America to pursue his career, proved to be an auspicious one when, two years later, the annual Thelonious Monk Institute Competition showcased Afro-Latin Hand Drumming for the first time ever. Pedro entered and won first place.

Vinyl Theatre, Shiffley, Valley Latini, Dylan Rockoff - Knitting Factory Brooklyn March 29, 2018 - Brooklyn

A piece of paper may seem flimsy, but once it's folded into something it becomes stronger, its weakness suddenly transformed. That's true for people, too: Once you recognize your weaknesses you can shift them to become your strengths. You can become like that piece of once-flimsy paper, now folded into origami. That's the premise behind Vinyl Theatre's dynamic second album, which takes the title Origami to represent the idea that you have the power to reform your personal limitations. The Milwaukee trio started writing the new music shortly after finishing their 2014 debut album Electrogram, their first release for Fueled By Ramen. The musicians found themselves deep in thought while touring the country extensively over the past two years, reconsidering how they wanted to project their ideas through their songs. The goal of Origami was to tell a cohesive story, rather than just gather tracks together, and Vinyl Theatre wrote nearly 40 songs, beginning with one called "My Fault," which encapsulates the main message of the record.

It’s a five-movement story of morbid fantasies and characters.”

Bayerische Staatsoper - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall March 29, 2018 - New York City

Rhapsodic, comic, and deeply moving, Der Rosenkavalier is Strauss's crowning operatic achievement.

At its heart, Hundred Acres -- the third full-length album from Wisconsin singer/songwriter S. Carey -- finds him grounded comfortably in his skin, but still with one foot in the stream. More direct than ever, there is a wellspring of confidence in this new batch of songs that lays bare the intricacies of life while keeping its ideas uncomplicated. Trained in jazz, Carey's astute musicianship has never been in question nor taken for granted, and the execution of Hundred Acres' new ideas is seamless. He intentionally unburdened himself from a more complicated instrumentation palate for these ten songs, and, in effect, this modification to his approach brings the content of the work much closer to a living reality. By giving equal status to the indifference of nature and the concerns of a material world -- while employing more pop-oriented structures instead of the Steve Reich- or Talk Talk-ian repetitions of his past work -- a new balance is struck that creates something unique. This in turn provides equal status for the feeling that created each song, and the feeling each song creates. Almost impossibly, there is more air between the bars; Carey and his contributors sway like treetops in the wind, remaining flexible enough that they never threaten to break. Thematically, the album is a poetic treatise on what is truly necessary in life, a surprisingly utilitarian art project that underscores the power of enduring. The simplification of songwriting didn't arrive out of thin air; it came from the similar desire to reach for the utopia of simplicity, for daily life to be unburdened of anxiety and tethered by love. It is a way to say that returning to a more simple life, if even just a little, can heal wounds and mend the cracks. This is leadership by example rather than intervention, and for Carey, it starts at home. In a way, these are his Kodak moments: dedications to his family laid out as songs and reminders that life, like music, has a profoundly ephemeral quality. One way to keep it is to let it flow over you. The challenge is the balance between holding on and letting go, and Hundred Acres is a master class in the trying. As a serious artist entering his prime, Carey presents these songs perhaps more like a Gerhard Richter Florence exhibition of masterfully over-painted photos than an ad hoc collage on the family fridge. They are at first easy-going with a wide-open front door, embracing simplicity in structure and lyrical straight-forwardness, then suddenly hopelessly beautiful, revealing, and breathtaking.

Still shrouded in mystery, the idea of Lostboycrow is the foundation for what we know about him as a musician. Sonically, the Los Angeles artist delves in to the world of introspective dance music. He takes pride in his thoughtful and provocative lyrics, but doesn't forget to cater to the current Pop-centric audience. Lostboycrow gives a voice to the voiceless through his storytelling ability while sonically finding the perfect medium between Pop, R&B, and Electronic music. Lostboy has already strutted his stuff live in concert playing the prestigious SchoolNight LA, headlining Neon Gold's Popshop West at The Echo, a Nation-wide tour with indie songstress, VERITÉ, and his own Co-Headline alongside his friends and collaborators, Flor.

SHEARE Age Limit: 18 and Over SKELA Upon first listen, it's hard not to be taken by the indie songstress' celestial vocals but Skela's real anchor is burrowed in her thoughtful and inventive lyricism. Born and raised in Queens, New York, Skela began singing when she was a little girl, spending hours mimicking the songs on her mother's cassette tapes. When she was a teenager, she used her train commute to school as a time to write down the thoughts in her head. She didn't know it at the time, but this was the beginning of her music education. The self-taught artist made her first entrance with break out track, 'Not Alone' (with Josh Jacobson) in 2015. She spent the next year cultivating a sound & message unique to herself and released her first EP and poetry zine in October 2017. Skela has since then captured the ears and hearts of her listeners who look into her lyrics as if it were a scavenger hunt. Her first single of the year will be released this Spring 2018.

Poets Lawrence Joseph and Harry Newman return to Cornelia Street for a reading of recent work. Lawrence Joseph will read from his acclaimed So Where Are We? (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2017). Reviewing the book in the Times Literary Supplement, Declan Ryan wrote: "Joseph has synthesized the unlikeliest lexicons—from legalese and street slang to overheard speech and jargon—and created a taut, sinuous medium capable of handling modern life without sacrificing his ability to sing. His is a poetry of the immediate present built to outlast ephemerality." Harry Newman will read some new work as well as from his collection of political poetry, Led from a Distance (Louisiana Literature Press, 2016), described by The Rumpus as "a powerful collection...about the moral bankruptcy and emotional numbing of war."

New York, NY- Acclaimed singer-songwriters Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell and Dar Williams have reunited their celebrated folk-pop collaboration, Cry Cry Cry. The band made their debut in 1998 with a self-titled release followed by a nationwide tour the following year. A mainstay on radio during the late 1990s and early 2000s, Cry Cry Cry returns to perform at Town Hall, twenty years after their sold-out performance here. The Washington Post raved, "Cry Cry Cry illustrates the advantages of taking the best works of contemporary folk musicians and fleshing them out with lovely, three-part harmonies" and the New York Times cheered for the trio's "gorgeous harmonies." This June will marked the band's first performance since their only tour in 1999. Cry Cry Cry will perform selections from their eponymous debut, favorites from each of their individual discographies as well as some choice new-to- the-band tunes. The members of Cry Cry Cry are enthusiastic about returning to the stage together. Shindell said, "we were called back into existence by Clearwater. They floated the idea of a reunion and we thought, if not now then when?" Each has spoken about their belief in the power of songs and the power in singing in harmony. The timing seems particularly appropriate now. "We certainly did not expect to be reuniting at this unique moment in time, when people are coming together giving voice, partly through music, to what matters and to our collective values." Kaplansky stated. Williams added, "When you have a musical bond, it's like siblings. You are always returning to that unspoken language and understanding. I love Richard's and Lucy's voices more than ever."

Gyan Riley, described by The New Yorker as a "one-man American-music machine," debuts his fifth album, Sprig. The album will be released on National Sawdust Tracks, the in-house record label formerly known as VIA Records, presenting a carefully curated selection of new music from bold voices. Album Notes from Gyan Riley: Sprig is a solo acoustic guitar record about growth and transformation. As an artist, most of my ideas begin as small cells, little snippets that sometimes develop and transform into something greater than their original embryonic forms. By extension of that concept, what started out as the release of a guitar album has become an opportunity for me to help raise awareness about deforestation and help fund reforestation efforts across the country and worldwide. Through AmericanForests.org, I will plant a tree for each physical album sold, helping them to reach their goal to plant 3 million trees in 2018! I grew up in the rural Sierra Foothills of Northern California, surrounded by the beautiful pine, madrone, oak, and manzanita trees of Tahoe National Forest. It is an area rich in beauty and teeming with life. But each year these trees are seriously threatened by the hundreds of perilous fires that sweep through California's forests. In 2017 alone, 9,133 CA fires burned a whopping 1,248,606 acres of land. I now live in NYC, but each year travel to CA several times to reconnect with my roots, and each dry season I am reminded of the devastation fire can bring. But fire is far from being the sole culprit in the deforestation equation. Illegal and unsustainable logging, fuelwood harvesting, mining, climate change, and forest conversion are all posing an enormous threat toward the global health of our forests. With 80% of the world's forests are already destroyed, the depletion of our forests is rapidly leading to massive species extinction and is the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions after fossil fuel burning. Our forests protect our watersheds, absorb harmful greenhouse gases, and provide habitat, clean drinking water, food, and medicine for all of us. Quite simply, their preservation is absolutely essential. Sprig is dedicated to my mother Ann. She was an avid supporter of conservationist movements, and lost her life to cancer a little over 2 years ago. My mom lived out her last painful weeks with great strength and grace, setting an indelible example of great courage for all her surrounding family and friends. Amidst these trying political times that greatly threaten our planet, it is increasingly important to maintain conviction and double our efforts in supporting our conservation organizations and those individuals who devote their lives toward the betterment of the planet and its inhabitants. For me this endeavor is just one small way to help, which happens to be personally significant. But if the music and message can reach enough people, I'm hoping that my small sprig of effort could turn into a profound positive impact on our global environment.

Famed for his gleaming, clean-lined structures like the Getty Center in Los Angeles, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier has a lesser-known side – artist. Over more than five decades, he has created collages, encaustics and silkscreens, more than 30 of which from 2014 to 2017 will be featured in "Richard Meier: Artist," a selling exhibition at Sotheby’s S|2 in New York, on view February 22 through March 29, 2018. Works on view explore the relationship between space, form and light, all fundamental concepts for Meier’s architecture. Each piece “must be seen as an element in my total work,” says Meier. “They are, for me. . . a passion related to my life as an architect.” Image Caption: Richard Meier, Ottobre, 2015.

Aminatta Forna's new novel, Happiness, is a delicate tale of love and loss revealing the hidden side of multicultural London after two strangers collide watching a fox on Waterloo Bridge. "She sees clearly that the personal and the public are inextricably combined. What goes on in a country reflects what goes on inside its houses," wrote Carolyn See. The Sparsholt Affair, Alan Hollinghurst's new multigenerational novel of sensuality and scruples, traces three friends' trials and triumphs in London from World War II into the 1960s and beyond to present a complicated portrait of masculinity and artistic worth. "If all art really does aspire to the condition of music, Hollinghurst's achieves it with a radiant splendor and richness unparalleled in contemporary fiction," wrote Neel Mukherjee

Katie Hannigan and Corinne Fisher debuted The Comedienne Project at FringeNYC15. Corinne, the host of the popular anti slut shaming podcast, Guys We Fucked, and Katie, a vehement man hater, both felt themselves falling into the trap of creating material that revolved around men, and our relationships to them. Fisher and Hannigan wanted to break out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves to answer - "What do we think about when we're not thinking about dudes and sex?" And the two created new half hour sets of fresh material on anything and everything BUT men. (turns out mostly food and vampires,)

Akinetic, the new album from Chicago songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Erik Hall's one-man polymathic project In Tall Buildings sees its creator plunge headlong into allegories of communication, loss, impulse, vice, and mass-denialism.

Working out of his house with Deck in Pilsen, Chicago, Hall's efforts yield ten tracks of spacious and textured handmade pop, comprising one of the most sharply written and deftly recorded home-studio albums in memory.

Musical Salute To The First Ladies of Neo-Soul: Sade, Lauryn Hill & Jill Scott - Club Bonafide March 29, 2018 - New York

Musical Salute To The First Ladies of Neo-Soul: Sade, Lauryn Hill & Jill Scott feat. Emilie Surtees For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Sade, Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them — something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Club Bonafide in New York City.

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

When the imposing talents of one of today's most versatile Latin jazz artists meld with the organic richness of some of the world's greatest cultural melting pots, the results are guaranteed to be as fresh and virtuosic as they are revealing and magical. Shortly after arriving in the U.S., his career took a dramatic turn when he was tapped by famed Cuban trumpet virtuoso Arturo Sandoval to join his group. Torres spent four years touring the world and recording with the jazz great, polishing his ever-expanding talents while attracting the attention of a long list of renowned artists with whom he would eventually collaborate. Over time, he would perform, arrange, produce and/or record with a veritable "who's who" of the jazz, Latin pop and salsa world, including such luminaries as Tito Puente, Paquito D'Rivera, Chick Corea, Alejandro Sanz, Ricky Martin, Don Byron, Richard Bona, Lila Downs, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Angelique Kidjo, Marc Anthony, Rubén Blades, Fonseca, Andrés Cepeda, Thalía, and his country's own international superstar, Shakira.

Hailed as the "high priestess of vocal apocalypse," legendary avant-garde musician Diamanda Galás presents the U.S. Premiere of her collaboration with video artist Davide Pepe, Schrei 27. The film is based on a work Galás first developed for radio and turned into a quadraphonic performance, Schrei X—a sequence of Beckettian monologues alternately sung, shrieked, whispered, or cried—that Galás gave in complete darkness at Performance Space 122 in 1996. Schrei 27 confronts the audience with an unrelenting visual and sonic portrait of a body enduring torture in the physical confinements of a mental health facility. To Galás, whose work often evokes the suffering of the powerless, "the object of this kind of torture is complete demoralization—and the erasure of all that the captive has ever known—including the fact that he was ever a human being."

The event will seek to answer the following questions: What does intergenerational equity mean in regards to climate change? Are young people's futures discounted today? If so, why? What is the specific role for young people to ensure intergenerational equity? Today's generation of young people will be disproportionately affected by climate change. Children are at greater risk of climate-linked illnesses, and more vulnerable during natural disasters, the consequences of which can have lifetime effects. For young people living in poverty or social exclusion, this vulnerability is magnified. As they become adults, today's generation of children and youth will likely experience the worst effects of a changing climate, raising issues of inter-generational equity. Despite these concerns, young people are rarely addressed in climate adaptation policies, and their potential as agents of change is often under-estimated. The dynamic contributions of young people today, and not just as tomorrow's leaders, deserves visibility and promotion.

NSSR Sociology Lecture: Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall March 29, 2018 - New York

The second speaker in our Sociology Lecture Series is Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou (Graduate Institute of Geneva). His talk is entitled, "Conceptualizing the Islamic State." What is the Islamic State and where does it come from? What new forms of globalized political violence has it ushered? How has the materialization of the Islamic State impacted contemporary international history and politics? In a sequel to his Understanding Al Qaeda (2011), political historian Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou presents in a new book, A Theory of ISIS – Political Violence and the Transformation of the Global Order (University of Chicago Press and Pluto Press, 2018), an original take on the armed group, discussing the social sciences perspective, unpacking its complex dynamics not merely solely in terms of its terrorist nature and its religious rhetoric but rather with a view to deepen our understanding of the group's impact on the very nature of the meaning of contemporary post-modern political violence.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Davies is the pioneering rock guitarist who singlehandedly changed rock-n-roll with his unique writing style. Davies, who was the lead guitarist and co-founder of the legendary group the Kinks, created the first heavy metal guitar tone and riff. This revolutionary guitar sound propelled the Kinks into stardom with the global smash hits “You Really Got Me” and “All Day and All of the Night." But Davies has since worked on notable projects, solo albums, and family work. He will perform a set of solo hits and Kinks classics, accompanied by his accomplished band.

Fearless Independent Cinema - 2018 Hirshon Artist in Residence Sean Baker, director of 'The Florida Project' and 'Tangerine' - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall March 29, 2018 - New York

Hirshon Director in Residence Sean Baker will present his latest films and discuss his work. There are independent filmmakers. And then there are independent independent filmmakers — the ones who live in thrall to their muse, with a spirit that might be called defiance. Or maybe fearlessness. Sean Baker is one of those directors. In movies like "Tangerine," "Starlet" and his new and transporting "The Florida Project," he tells close-to-the-bone tales of scavengers and outcasts, the desperate and the lost, and his filmmaking has a renegade glow: He takes you so close to his characters that it's as if you're eavesdropping. To heighten the intimacy, he shot "Tangerine," his 2015 drama about transgender street hookers in West Hollywood, entirely on an iPhone. The result was raw, real, revolutionary (not to mention weirdly beautiful).

"Cursor, from the Latin root meaning 'run' or 'runner.' A cursor is a movable, blinking figure that indicates the position on a screen where the next character will appear, or where user action is needed." Cursors are identities in crisis. They are bodies motivated by language, by users, by others. They move through space. They blink in tempo and race the hours. They speak in many tongues. They pause and backtrack. They search and destroy. They are black. They are fugitive. They dance. They are driven to make mistakes. They disrupt and revise our intended messages, our intended meanings. Like the queen piece in chess they move up, down, forward, back across the field of the text, but they are not the text. They misspell our perceptions. Perhaps they have a will of their own? This project is about the cursor and its many faces. During his 2018 ISSUE residency, choreographer and performer Will Rawls takes the multifarious figure of the cursor as a guideline to investigate his work that encompasses dance, writing, voice and objects. In this first research showing, Rawls focuses on the materiality of his voice as it runs through his writing. In a series of scored readings and vocal performances, Rawls asks: If I zoom into my cursors' contents, they will pixelate and come apart. Isn't this what we all want?

This class builds on the work of the Gallup Organization and the theory of discovering your strengths. It is required that you take the Discover Your Strengths class prior to this class. The StandOut Assessment utilized in this class combines your top two strength roles to reveal your edge at work. It offers practical tips and techniques to help you sharpen this edge to standout at work. While the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment, in the Discover Your Strengths class, was an affirming way to learn more about your unique talents and strengths, it simply provided a positive way to describe yourself and areas where you have natural talent. The StandOut Assessment will provide additional insight and recommended actions for you to take the next step with your self-discovery and differentiate yourself from other colleagues. It will also provide guidance for you to maximize your potential and make more of an impact at work. Presented by: Organizational Development & Training (Work Life & Services)

Tackling the Social Roots of the Opioid Crisis: A Call to Action - Columbia University School-Social Work March 29, 2018 - New York

Opioid overdose is now the leading cause of death among people under 50 in the U.S., killing over 100 people a day. Although the common perception is that the crisis is predominantly affecting white communities, opioid overdose death rates have steadily increased for black Americans since 2011, spiking in 2016. Racialized drug laws, incarceration, poverty, unemployment, homelessness, racism, stigma, and lack of access to care—all are factors fueling the epidemic among people of color. At this workshop, Dr. Louisa Gilbert (bio), top, an expert on evidence-based interventions to prevent opioid overdose, and Bethany Medley (bio), a CSSW alumna who works as Opioid Program Manager for the Harm Reduction Coalition, will make the case that social workers are uniquely positioned to tackle the social roots of the current opioid epidemic and to ensure that people of color have equal access to addiction care. Participants will be advised on strategies and next steps to advance a continuum of evidenced-based harm reduction policies, along with multi-level interventions, for opioid overdose and misuse in key affected communities.

Group from New York City, formed in the late 1970s. Often tagged as garage rock revivalists, the Fleshtones mix the fuzz guitar and Farfisa organ sounds of that genre with rockabilly, '50s and '60s R&B, and surf into a potent retro stew the group likes to call "super rock." The group formed in 1976 in Queens with vocalist/keyboardist Peter Zaremba, guitarist Keith Streng, bassist Jan Marek Pakulski, and drummer Bill Milhizer and aimed to return rock & roll to the simplicity and unself-consciousness of the '50s and early '60s. (The group was often joined on-stage and in the studio by sax player Gordon Spaeth, who passed on in 2005.) The group fit nicely into New York's punk and new wave scene, and an early single, "American Beat," attracted the attention of independent label Red Star and, in time, I.R.S. The group's debut EP, Up-Front, was released in 1980 and was followed by their first full-length album, Roman Gods, and Blast Off!, an unreleased studio album recorded for Red Star in 1978. 1983 produced Hexbreaker, widely regarded as the Fleshtones' finest album. The band continued to record through the '80s and released Powerstance in 1992 and Beautiful Light in 1994. (Powerstance also marked the debut of new Fleshtones bassist Ken Fox, who replaced Pakulski in the lineup and has been with the group ever since.) While the group's popularity dipped under the radar in the last half of the '90s, in 2003 the group bounded back when they were signed to the potent indie label Yep Roc Records and released one of their best albums, Do You Swing? An equally solid follow-up, Beachhead, was issued in 2005 and was produced in part by Detroit garage rock kingpin Jim Diamond. Fleshtones side projects include Keith Streng's band Full Time Men, which featured R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, and Peter Zaremba's Love Delegation. In 2008, more than 30 years after the group formed, they released Take a Good Look, proving their ability to be just as raucous as they were in the good ol' days.

The Open Mind: Lessons from the Visual Arts with Eléna Rivera - Poets House March 29, 2018 - New York

This workshop will focus on the ways the visual arts informs poetry, not just in writing in and about visual art (architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, performance art, installation and public art), but also the ways that the visual arts can help us to re-see our writing practice. How can the visual arts expand our idea of the poem, our practice of making, and help us access inspiration and stimulate our sensibilities? In this six-week workshop we'll write to, with, and in response to these forms of art, see what they have to teach us, how the methods of art-making can enliven our poetry. Participants will be given writing prompts and exercises to stimulate their creativity to generate work for a final project of their own choosing. We'll read short selections from various artists on their art-making process, such as Agnes Martin, Teju Cole, Nathaniel Dorsky, Gabriel Orozco, Gabrielle Civil, and read poets like Frank O'Hara, William Carlos Williams, Barbara Guest, Gwendolyn Brooks, John Ashbery, Gertrude Stein, John Taggart, Cornelius Eady and Anne Carson, among others.

It's difficult to impart the roots-steeped, road-trippin' essence of the Adam Ezra Group into a single word, but frontman Adam Ezra nonetheless keeps one in mind as something of a mantra: community. To the musicians at the heart of AEG, community is epitomized by a belief they all share, one that has long doubled as a mission statement for the group: namely, that making music together is itself a form of grassroots organizing, capable of nothing less than changing the world. That Ezra and his bandmates hold sacred such an inclusive approach to their craft helps explain the gathering storm of an album that is "Hurricane Wind," one of AEG's most ambitious undertakings to date. Not only fan-funded, but also fan-produced, the project found the broader AEG fan community playing a role in every step of the process from inception to its release on May 21st 2017.

Dear Nina: A Sonic Love Letter to Nina Simone featuring Drea d'Nur & Rootstock Republic - Joe's Pub March 29, 2018 - Manhattan

Power, poise and passion reign supreme in this pairing of voice and strings that celebrates the legendary – and at times uncharted – canon of Nina Simone. Vocalist/pianist Drea d'Nur is accompanied by a 6-piece string ensemble, courtesy of Rootstock Republic, sharing center-stage in this uniquely intimate and newly orchestrated songbook of Nina's love songs, blues and protest music. "Drea d'Nur, who created, produced and directed the riveting production [The Spirit of Nina] brought together a phenomenal group of artists in an unforgettable tribute to one of America's most important and conscientious artists, Nina Simone. There were at least four, well-deserved, standing ovations. Drea did beautiful justice to some of Nina's most memorable and important songs in her own amazing soul-stirring style. ["Strange Fruit" was] accompanied by acclaimed Violinist, Juliette Jones, and Dancer, Jessica Hutchinson; the audience was [left] mesmerized by Drea's haunting vocals, the dancer's movement and the soaring strings."--The Challenger News "A constant high point during the evening was the incredible accompaniment from the string section, Rootstock Republic. The strings enveloped the crowd and conveyed a sense of wistfulness, longing, melancholy and elation during various points of the night."--Pancakes & Whiskey

Music Heals - A Benefit Delivering Music to Children in Need - The Capitol Theatre March 29, 2018 - Port Chester

Proceeds from this show will go to The Mangold Music Foundation. The goal of the Mangold Music Foundation is to create music in the lives of children in need of hope; to put guitars and ukuleles in the hands of hospitalized children, to create music programs in underprivileged communities where the arts have been removed, to bring the gift of music to those who cannot afford the opportunity. It takes 30 instruments to fill a pediatric cancer ward with music. It takes 10 guitars, 10 music stands, and 10 lesson books to create music programs for 50 children.

Tonight our brilliant PIT students take the stage. Graduates of the PIT's Level 4 class developed their own improvised form to create a fully formed improvised show focusing on developing stronger relationships between characters, using walk-ons and tag-outs to enrich the funny, editing, heightening, and making connections between scenes. The legends of tomorrow show you they're actually the stars of today!

Good Catch will improvise a full musical based on YOUR suggestions! Songs, dances, beginnings, middles, and ends — all made up on the spot!

With the Autumn 2017 release of their first album, And I'm Right, Sami Stevens and the Man I Love are carving out their rightful place in the NYC RnB scene. And I'm Right, released on vinyl through Leesta Vall Records, gives an imaginative, fresh take on old, warm sounds and grooves, drawing comparison to groups like Emily King, Amy Winehouse and Hiatus Kaiyote. The record weaves through influences of Jazz, Classic RnB and Soul, Blues and modern RnB, unified by Stevens' compelling voice as a songwriter. And I'm Right is a window into Stevens' world, telling stories of vulnerability, love, optimism, growing pains, and fiercely powerful perseverance. "And I'm Right" has the mark of maturity and that's a rare thing to find these days...the lyrics often impress as well with "She Is God" and "Child They Said Was Mine" mixing together Phoebe Snow style lyrical intelligence with a concise emotional impact." -Bluesbunny Sami Stevens and the Man I Love has already secured residencies at Pine Box Rock Shop and, currently, Parkside. Stevens, the band's leader, has toured internationally with various acts, having played with artists like Jason Moran, Thomas Pridgen, Fred Hersch, J.G. Thirwell of Foetus, and Shannon Powell. Additionally, her work with soundtrack band Tredici Bacci has been featured by publications like Rolling Stone and the New Yorker. Stevens studied Jazz at the New England Conservatory of Music under Dominique Eade and John McNeil, having graduated in 2015. Formed that same year, the Man I Love includes Eitan Akman on guitar, Bob Edinger on drums, Jed Lingat on bass, Noah MacNeil on keys, Kazemde George on tenor sax.

A new documentary film directed by Richard Kane, J. Fred Woell: An American Vision celebrates the pioneering metal artist who created work with wit, satire, and meaning. This screening, which marks the film's New York premiere, will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and special guests Glenn Adamson, Helen Drutt, and Paul J. Smith, moderated by MAD's Assistant Curator Barbara Paris Gifford. In 1965, J. Fred Woell took his cast silver jewelry to New York City galleries and was turned down flat. "Use gold or forget it," they said. A confirmed contrarian, Woell vowed to make jewelry from material of no value, inspiring the term "anti-jewelry." Nearly fifty years later, he was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of North American Goldsmiths. J. Fred Woell: An American Vision chronicles Woell's life and artwork, which is now housed in permanent collections across the country and internationally, including at the Museum of Arts and Design. Woell has inspired generations of students through positions at Boston University, the Swain School of Design, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and SUNY New Paltz, as well as through his many workshops and mentorships.

On March 26th 1997, 39 members of the religious group Heaven's Gate escaped their vessels and ascended to a UFO that was following behind Comet Hale-Bopp. Or something like that.

Join pianist Spike Wilner for our after hours. He'll have special guests and an invitation-only jam session.

Celtic Woman: 2018 Homecoming Tour - Tilles Center for the Performing Arts March 29, 2018 - Brookville

Retro-rock visionaries Monster Magnet spent much of the 1990s struggling against the prejudices imposed upon image and sound by alternative rock fashion nazis. In fact, it wasn't until that movement's late-'90s decline that the band's dogged persistence finally paid off, when their fourth album, Powertrip, catapulted to gold sales status on the strength of its massive hard rock hit, "Space Lord." In the meantime, Monster Magnet had managed to become one of the most successful and influential bands associated with the so-called underground "stoner rock" scene. And yet, their influences span much further than that scene's foundations in '70s hard rock and metal, delving into space rock, psychedelia, and beyond.

Matangi/maya/m.i.a. 2018. Directed By Stephen Loveridge - The Museum of Modern Art Through March 29, 2018 - Manhattan

Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. 2018. Sri Lanka/United Kingdom/USA. Directed by Stephen Loveridge. In English and Tamil; English subtitles. 95 min. OPENING NIGHT New York Premiere Before rapper M.I.A. became a global sensation, known for her musical daring and tireless political activism for the Tamil people in her native Sri Lanka, she was an aspiring filmmaker, having made countless video diaries chronicling her youth and private life. First-time documentarian Stephen Loveridge, who attended art school in London with M.I.A. in the nineties, uses this first-hand material to craft a nuanced and intimate portrait of a woman finding her roots, voice, and stardom, and a deeply personal statement from a pop star yearning to express herself.

The curiously named !!!, whose moniker can be pronounced by repeating any one-syllable percussive sound three times (e.g., "chk chk chk"), formed in 1996 after the demise of the mid-'90s hardcore act Yah Mos. While on tour, members of Yah Mos, including !!! singer Nic Offer, envisioned forming a band oriented more toward danceable music, and once they returned to Sacramento, CA, their hometown, they decided to turn their working concept into an actual group. The band quickly grew into an eight-member ensemble, including Mario Andreoni on guitar, Offer on vocals, Justin van der Volgen on bass, Dan Gorman on trumpet and percussion, Tyler Pope on guitar, Allan Wilson on saxophone and percussion, John Pugh on drums, and Jason Racine on percussion. Fusing the groove-oriented style of James Brown's backing band with the edginess of Gang of Four and the Contortions and featuring an expansive percussive presence, !!! spent its first few years as a group developing its sound and playing at house parties for friends in Sacramento. At the same time, Offer, Pope, and van der Volgen were playing in a dub-inflected instrumental outfit called Out Hud with Molly Schnick and Phyllis Forbes, two musicians who used to be in the band Raoul.

3:10 to Yuma. 1957. USA. Directed by Delmer Daves. Screenplay by Halsted Welles, based on a story by Elmore Leonard. With Glen Ford, Van Heflin, Felicia Farr. 35mm. 92 min. Desperate to save his failing ranch, Dan Evans (Van Heflin) is hired by a stagecoach line to escort a convicted criminal to the 3:10 train to Yuma. It is not in Evans nature to be dictatorial or menacing, but he has a tough assignment and a crafty charge. Ben Wade (Glenn Ford), the smooth, cajoling outlaw, tries to turn Dan to his side, but Dan is fixed on meeting the train and getting Ben on it without shooting him or getting shot. (James Mangold remade the film in 2007 with Christan Bale and Russell Crowe.)

3/4. 2017. Bulgaria. Directed by Ilian Metev. In Bulgarian; English subtitles. 82 min. New York Premiere 3/4 evokes the intimacies, joys, and tensions of a contemporary Bulgarian family facing an uncertain future; the father is an astrophysicist with his head in the clouds, his son a waywardly antic teenager, his daughter a gifted but anxious pianist. Illian Metev (whose previous film was the gripping documentary Sofia's Last Ambulance) won the Filmmakers of the Present prize at the 2017 Locarno Festival for this fiction feature debut, a gracefully shot, uncommonly tender character study that plays like an exquisite piece of chamber music.

Matt Anderson runs a fun mic where you can barf up your jokes. Come get your comedy reps in. Lottery style! Get your name in before 11:01pm if you don't want to be in the late bucket!!

Ava. 2017. Iran/Canada/Qatar. Directed by Sadaf Foroughi. In Farsi; English subtitles. 103 min. New York Premiere Adolescence creates intense pressure for any girl, but it's particularly strong for 17-year-old Ava, buffeted by the harsh strictures of home and school in contemporary Tehran. Iranian writer-director Sadaf Foroughi won the jury prize at the Toronto International Film Festival for her intimate and intensely dramatic portrait of a young woman whose private longings drive her to rebellion and lead to public shaming. A Grasshopper Film release.

Communion Presents: Lucy Rose With Charlie Cunningham - Le Poisson Rouge March 29, 2018 - West Village

The Optimist is the story of a young man's journey through a intangible world in pursuit of discovering himself and empowering those around him through his artistry. This is the tale of a starving artist; living and breathing for a craft that can truly change the world and how the people in it see themselves and one another. The path of the optimist is one through an ever changing, dark and uncertain universe full of pitfalls and heartache yet illuminated by the sheer and unwavering forces of hope and effervescence. This production takes audience into a world not unlike their own to bring forth childlike wonder, to appreciate those who work so diligently to reach even the smallest stages and to peer into the small yet powerful elements that connect us.

Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, the Subdudes have quietly become one of America's national music treasures. The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock 'n' roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you'll ever hear from any five musicians. Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band's substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée, for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass.

Funk Fest at Arlene's! With Waiting on Mongo, Doctor Rick, Matt Wade - Arlene's Grocery March 29, 2018 - New York

Waiting On Mongo is a seven-piece funk/jam band from Asbury Park, NJ. This award-winning band features rowdy horns, a super tight rhythm section, and a master of the keyboards whom the band is named after. Presenting original music along with covers of all kinds, get ready for the Mongo Party! Doctor Rick was put here for one reason: to help you get your fix. Brennan Kensey (Bass, Vocals) and Zach Santarsiero (Drums, Vocals) consistently hold down an infectiously groovy rhythm section, casually sprinkling in improvised solos while constantly pushing the energy higher. Patrick Callahan (Rhythm Guitar, Lead Vocals) keeps listeners on track with catchy, super-relatable lyrics that will be stuck in your head days after a show, all while trading licks with the Big Bad Booty Daddy himself, (E)Rick Soszynski (Lead Guitar), who shreds through solos and melodies with effortless levity. Need your face melted? Come on down. Wanna dance yourself outta your shoes? Stop by. These guys are just what the Doctor ordered.

Vinterbrødre (Winter Brothers). 2017. Directed By Hlynur Pálmason - The Museum of Modern Art March 29, 2018 - Manhattan

Vinterbrødre (Winter Brothers). 2017. Denmark/Iceland. Directed by Hlynur Pálmason. In English and Danish; English subtitles. 100 min. New York Premiere This debut feature from Hlynur Pálmason, an Icelandic visual artist/filmmaker based in Denmark, is an immersive sensory experience set in a desolate Danish limestone mining community. A landscape covered in indistinguishable white ash and snow masks the darkness enveloping Emil, a lonely and eccentric young man who works in the mine with his much more sociable brother. Few notice Emil until he is suspected of causing a co-worker's grave illness, which leads to his ostracization. A relentless industrial soundscape accompanies this portrait of a man trapped in unforgiving isolation. A KimStim release. Thursday, March 29, 9:00 p.m. Lincoln Center, Walter Reade Theater Buy tickets Saturday, March 31, 2:00 p.m. The Museum of Modern Art, Floor T2, Theater 2 Buy tickets This film accompanies New Directors/New Films 2018.

Born March 19, 1919, pianist and composer Lennie Tristano has come to be considered one of the most influential jazz artists of the 1950s, as much for his performances and recordings, as for his unique approach to teaching improvisation in a manner that became a bridge from bebop to later styles. Tristano was also a regular at the original Birdland from 1949 through the early 1960s. For this celebration, Birdland brings together a group of jazz all-stars to explore Tristano's style, compositions, and influence.

Magic Male Revue. 'Official Magic Mike XXL Tribute Show ' - The Chance Theater March 30, 2018 - Poughkeepsie

Simply calling Curtis Harding a "soul man" feels reductive. Yes, his music is undoubtedly soulful and his songwriting is both evocative and provocative, but there's more to his music than the stock imagery the label conjures. Harding's voice conveys pain, pleasure, longing, tenderness, sadness and strength—a full gamut of emotions. Yet still, "soul man" seems too simple a description for musician like Harding, a man who has lived multiple lives as a musician, participated in different scenes, and brought all those varied sounds and experiences together to carve out his own unique niche. The culmination of his experimentation is his latest masterwork, Face Your Fear.

Prurience­ makes its US debut at Works & Process at the Guggenheim following a sold-out run at the Southbank Centre in London. After interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, British writer and performer Christopher Green presents an immersive theater experience inviting audiences to attend a fictional self-help group that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed. Questioning the side effects of porn consumption, Green asks audiences to consider if society is in the grip of an actual addiction or a moral panic, through increasingly distorting layers of reality and theatricality. Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs. Praise for Prurience The Times (UK): "A disorientating, provocative experience. . . . Theatrically the piece is audacious, springing a series of head-spinning surprises. This is the kind of art that leaves its mark on you. Unnerving, and uncomfortably compelling." Finalist, TBC Award (for productions that defy traditional categories), The Offies (The Off West End Theatre Awards), London This program takes place in The Wright restaurant at the Guggenheim and has open seating. $45, $40 members and Friends of Works & Process. House seats may be available for $1,000+ Friends of Works & Process. On a limited basis, house seats may be released to the public before performances at ticket prices of $90/$80 members. Prurience has been created with support from the Wellcome Trust.

Highly innovative improvisers Stephan Crump, Ingrid Laubrock and Cory Smythe released their acclaimed album Planktonic Finales on Intakt in 2017, a series of recordings that demonstrate the trio's finesse and sensitivity in collective playing. As Christoph Wagner wrote in the liner notes: "Over long periods, the music seemed to play itself…When listening back to the recordings, at times even the musicians were no longer sure if what they were hearing came from sax or from bowed bass."

On his 2011 debut 'Will The Guns Come Out,' Hanni El Khatib tried something he'd never tried before -- making a bedroom-style recording of his then stripped-to-the-skeleton guitar-and-drums rock 'n' roll mostly for the sheer joy of making it. For his ferocious 2013 follow-up 'Head In The Dirt,' he tried something new again, showing up at producer Dan Auerbach's analog-dreamland Nashville studio with nothing but the clothes on his back and an open mind. But after 'Head In The Dirt's release and almost a year of relentless touring, Hanni knew he needed to go past 'unpredictable' all the way to 'unprecedented.' He needed isolation, time and the chance to experiment. So after 30 days locked in hand-picked L.A. studio The Lair, the result is the album 'Moonlight' -- the rarest and most welcome kind of album, made at that perfect point in life where confidence, experience, and technique unite to help an artist do anything they want. That's why it starts with a song that sounds like a Mobb Deep beat under a Suicide-style synth drone and ends with an ESG-meets-LCD Soundsystem gone italo-disco song about life and death. That's why it collides crushing crate-digger drumbeats that'd be right at home on a Can LP or an Eddie Bo 45 with bleeding distorto guitar, bent and broken barroom piano and hallucinatory analog flourishes. (In fact, some smart producer is going to sample the drums from this album and complete the circle of life.) And that's also why 'Moonlight' feels like the album he's always wanted to make: "What would it sound like if RZA got in the studio with Iggy Pop and Tom Waits?" he asks. "I don't know! That was my approach on everything."

String Orchestra of Brooklyn: String Theories III: Meditations: Music by Pauline Oliveros, John Cage, Tony Conrad, and Zach Layton - Roulette March 30, 2018 - Brooklyn

Meditative works for strings using drones, improvisation, and time-based structures woven together into an evening-length sound installation.

Singer-songwriter John Gardner formed Brooklyn based folk-rock band Common Jack during a two and a half year world tour with the Broadway show, Once. Based on the indie film of the same name starring Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova, Gardner spent those years playing Once to sold-out houses in America, Canada, and Japan while gigging with his own material in his free time. Citing a wide range of influences from Bob Dylan to Feist, Gardner operates within the fluid genre of Americana; employing folk song structures while blending elements of rock & pop to create fresh arrangements while retaining the familiarity all Americana music has. Although many of the early recordings consisted of Gardner playing every instrument in a more traditional folk set up, Common Jack has come to include a rotation of other musicians on electric guitars, drums, fiddles, and synths/organs.

Justice Now! Between Revolutionary Pasts and Liberatory Futures - Club Free Time March 30, 2018 - New York

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, author of From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation, and Johanna Fernández, foremost historian of the Young Lords Party, discuss racial capitalism and the limits of liberalism within our current political climate. Drawing on their respective research on liberation movements in the US, Fernández and Taylor will explore the possibilities for resistance and justice today, especially in regards to police violence, mass incarceration, surveillance, and poverty.

A panel conversation on fashion's potential to be a force of social good, which will include speakers from Levi Strauss and Co., Parsons School of Design, and Remake, a conscious fashion movement dedicated to labor justice in the fashion industry. The discussion follows the premiere of Made in Sri Lanka, a short film that tracks several students as they embark on an investigative journey into global clothing production. They travel to factories abroad, meeting the women who make our clothing and exploring mass production.

Post-show meet and greet with Q&A and photo op, autographed The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone, laminate, and exclusive access to artist merchandise booth. Artists don't really make albums like Lee Ann Womack's THE LONELY, THE LONESOME AND THE GONE anymore. Albums that seem to exist separate and apart from any external pressures. Albums that possess both a profound sense of history and a clear-eyed vision for the future. Albums that transcend genres while embracing their roots. Albums that evoke a sense of place and of personality so vivid they make listeners feel more like participants in the songs than simply admirers of them. Anybody who has paid attention to Womack for the past decade or so could see she was headed in this direction. THE LONELY, THE LONESOME AND THE GONE (ATO Records) — a breathtaking hybrid of country, soul, gospel and blues — comes from Womack's core. "I could never shake my center of who I was," says the East Texas native. "I'm drawn to rootsy music. It's what moves me." Recorded at Houston's historic SugarHill Recording Studios and produced by Womack's husband and fellow Texan, Frank Liddell (fresh off a 2017 ACM Album of the Year win for Miranda Lambert's 'The Weight of These Wings'), THE LONELY, THE LONESOME AND THE GONE marks the culmination of a journey that began with Womack's 2005 CMA Album of the Year 'There's More Where That Come From,' moving her toward an authentic American music that celebrates her roots and adds to the canon. It also underscores the emergence of Womack's songwriting voice: She has more writing credits among this album's 14 tracks than on all her previous albums combined.

CAMP's From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf (2013): Through the Indian Ocean - Club Free Time March 30, 2018 - New York

The film follows the physical crossings through the gulfs of Kutch, Persia, and Aden made by oversized wooden vessels that still today enable a vital order of a "world-trade," a kind the moves perpendicular to the phenomena of both piracy and sanctions. 83 min.

Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly but with AMERICAN BAND, they have made the most explicitly political album in their extraordinary canon. A powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed, the album is the sound of a truly American Band – a Southern American band – speaking on matters that matter. DBT made the choice to direct the Way We Live Now head on, employing realism rather than subtext or symbolism to purge its makers' own anger, discontent, and frustration with societal disintegration and the urban/rural divide that has partitioned the country for close to a half-century. Master songwriters both, Hood and Cooley wisely avoid overt polemics to explore such pressing issues as race, income inequality, the NRA, deregulation, police brutality, Islamophobia, and the plague of suicides and opioid abuse. As a result, songs like "What It Means" and the tub-thumping "Kinky Hypocrites" are intensely human music from a rock 'n' roll band yearning for community and collective action. Fueled by a just spirit of moral indignation and righteous rage, AMERICAN BAND is protest music fit for the stadiums, designed to raise issues and ire as the nation careens towards its most momentous election in a generation. "I don't want there to be any doubt as to which side of this discussion we fall on," Hood says. "I don't want there to be any misunderstanding of where we stand. If you don't like it, you can leave. It's okay. We're not trying to be everybody's favorite band, we're going to be who we are and do what we do and anyone who's with us, we'd love to have them join in." Mike Cooley is somewhat more direct. "I wanted this to be a no bones about it, in your face political album," he says. "I wanted to piss off the assholes." AMERICAN BAND's considerable force can in part be credited to the sheer musical strength of the current Drive-By Truckers line-up, with Hood and Cooley joined by bassist Matt Patton, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Gonzalez, and drummer Brad Morgan – together, the longest-lasting iteration in the band's two-decade history. AMERICAN BAND follows ENGLISH OCEANS and 2015's IT'S GREAT TO BE ALIVE!, marking the first time DBT have made three consecutive LPs with the same hard-traveling crew. "This is the longest period of stability in our band's history," says Hood. "I think we finally hit the magic formula. It's made everything more fun than it's ever been, making records and playing shows." Drive-By Truckers might have maintained constancy but Hood embraced change by moving his family to Portland, OR in July 2015, a physical shift which he says "opened the floodgates" to a batch of deeply felt, strikingly emotional new songs. Having recorded the bulk of their canon in Athens, GA, the band was also eager to reinvent their own surroundings. Memphis was considered but when DBT's November 2015 tour wrapped in Nashville, the band decided to spend a few days at the legendary Sound Emporium getting a head start on the new record. Never ones to screw around in the studio, DBT cranked out nine new songs in just three 14-hour shifts, as ever with producer/engineer David Barbe at the helm. Coming in directly from the road put a head of steam behind the band, allowing them to lay it all out live on the floor, tracking songs like "Once They Banned Imagine" in little more than a single take.

Three–time GRAMMY Award nominee Ravi Coltrane has worked as a sideman with such leaders as Elvin Jones, Jack DeJohnette, and Geri Allen; recorded six noteworthy albums as a leader, and founded the independent record label RKM. This week, he brings his celebrated trio to the stand for six celebratory nights of creative improvisation. His special guests reflect a middle point between his own work and the work of his father, the legendary John Coltrane: Tomoki Sanders is the son of Pharaoh Sanders, one of the elder Coltrane's most celebrated collaborators, Brandee Younger shares the chosen instrument of Ravi's mother Alice Coltrane, and Ralph Alessi is one of his closest musical partners. "When you experience events like Coltrane's set, you wonder how one can ever replicate the live buzz of that room on record. It's done time and again, of course, but Wednesday night's Coltrane set really drove home how sensational live jazz is when it's performed winningly. At its best, live jazz is one of the most wondrous highs in the world; Coltrane and company proved it many times over." (San Francisco Chronicle) Ravi Coltrane - tenor saxophone Brandee Younger - harp Dezron Douglas - bass Allan Mednard - drums

Tickets go on sale Friday, January 26th at 12pm Hailed as one of the forefathers of both ambient electronic and new age music, Laraaji performs a special show at National Sawdust. A performer of both piano, mbira, and his own custom-designed electronic zither, Laraaji is best known for his 1980 collaboration with Brian Eno, "Ambient 3: Day of Radiance." Born in 1943 as Edward Larry Gordon, Laraaji attended Howard University in Washington D.C. on a scholarship to study composition and piano. He later spent time in New York pursuing a career as a stand-up comedian and actor. In the seventies, Laraaji began his lifelong study of Eastern Mysticism, was initiated as a swami, and merged music with spiritual practice. Following an intuition, he bought a zither from a local pawn shop, converted it to an electronic instrument, and, while busking in Washington Square Park, Laraaji was discovered by Brian Eno who offered to produce him on the spot. His recordings can be found on WARP records, All Saints records, GLITTERBEAT, Numero Group, Stones Throw, Leaving Records, and Soul Jazz.

It's been six years since The Lone Bellow was first formed by Zach Williams, multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin and guitarist Brian Elmquist. But one only needs to get the lead singer and guitarist speaking to their songwriting process to witness firsthand just how passionate he remains about its teeming creativity. "It's a beautiful process," the effusive singer says of the almost epiphany-like manner in which the band typically translates its vivid ideas to melodies and lyrics. "You're trying to figure out exactly what it is you're trying to say. And then, 'Bam! Lightning strikes, everybody's in the room, and it's like the heavens open. Suddenly you're able to write a song." The Lone Bellow, which also now includes Jason Pipkin on keys/bass, has long nurtured a deep and highly personal connection with their music. But with Walk Into A Storm, their third studio album, due on September 15 via Descendant Records/ Sony Music Masterworks, the band turned inward like never before. "We covered such a broad range of emotion on the album," Elmquist says of the raw, intimate and undeniably soulful Dave Cobb-produced LP recorded in Nashville's famed RCA Studio A. The 10-track album, Elmquist says, is centered on "the human condition and how you're trying to connect with it," and with stunning tracks including "Is It Ever Gonna Be Easy?" and "Long Way To Go," it features some of the band's most poignant material to date.

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

Imaginative, eleven-year-old Kevin loves history, but is trapped in a dull, suburban life of his parents' making. That is, until an armoured knight and a gang of dwarves emerge from his wardrobe and carry him off on a journey through space and time. Following a map which charts all of the holes in the fabric of time, they gleefully embark on a madcap treasure hunt, crossing paths with Napoleon Bonaparte (Ian Holm), Robin Hood (John Cleese), and King Agamemnon (Sean Connery) along the way. "Time Bandits has as its basis nothing less than the Greatest Mystery Story Ever Told—the creation of the universe….The physical production is elaborate and lush, and the special effects are marvelously well done. It's played with fine comic style by everyone from Sir Ralph [Richardson], Mr. [Sean] Connery, Mr. [Ian] Holm, and Mr. [David] Warner on down through young Craig Warnock (Kevin) and the six irrepressible dwarfs….They're definitely not the sort of dwarfs who'd be caught dead whistling while they worked." —New York Times Curated by Rubin Museum fellow and neuroscientist David Eagleman, Cabaret Cinema delves into the mysteries of time.

Multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams' acclaimed eponymous 2015 debut, released after seven years of playing in Levon Helm's band – and frequent guesting with Phil Lesh, Little Feat, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought to the stage the crackling creative energy of a decades-long offstage union. A whirlwind of touring and promo followed, and when the dust cleared, the duo was ready to do it all again. Which brings us to Contraband Love, a riskier slice of Americana.

Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly but with AMERICAN BAND, they have made the most explicitly political album in their extraordinary canon. A powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed, the album is the sound of a truly American Band – a Southern American band – speaking on matters that matter. DBT made the choice to direct the Way We Live Now head on, employing realism rather than subtext or symbolism to purge its makers' own anger, discontent, and frustration with societal disintegration and the urban/rural divide that has partitioned the country for close to a half-century. Master songwriters both, Hood and Cooley wisely avoid overt polemics to explore such pressing issues as race, income inequality, the NRA, deregulation, police brutality, Islamophobia, and the plague of suicides and opioid abuse. As a result, songs like "What It Means" and the tub-thumping "Kinky Hypocrites" are intensely human music from a rock 'n' roll band yearning for community and collective action. Fueled by a just spirit of moral indignation and righteous rage, AMERICAN BAND is protest music fit for the stadiums, designed to raise issues and ire as the nation careens towards its most momentous election in a generation.

Tenor saxophonist Jason Rigby returns to Cornelia Street Cafe with his celebrated trio featuring jazz greats bassist Cameron Brown and drummer Gerald Cleaver. Working as a band for the past 5+ years and poised to release the first of a series of recordings in early 2016, Rigby's trio pays energy, excitement, creativity and cohesive elasticity in spades. JASON RIGBY DETROIT-CLEVELAND TRIO combines the creative powers of Detroit natives Cameron Brown and Gerald Cleaver, with Cleveland native Rigby. Hailed as "a truly lyrical musician" and "New York's rising start of tenor sax" with a "pioneering voice that deftly combines many influences," Rigby is known for his compelling inside-outside improvising. Cameron Brown is one of the greatest living bass veterans, a driving and creative constant. Gerald Cleaver is an unstoppable modern drummer who consistently dazzles with his creative depth.

We couldn't recommend their debut LP, FLUKE, highly enough." - Darlingside Frances Luke Accord are an independent Chicago-based duo hailing originally from South Bend, Indiana. Both dedicated multi-instrumentalists and meticulous songwriters, Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers distinguish their music with genre fluidity, buttery harmonies and acoustic ensembles.

Bringing their world/folk sound to Chicago in the summer of 2013, the duo quickly garnered local and regional attention for their captivating live performances and stunning self-produced releases, including the Queen for Me EP (April 2014), Live @ Strobe (April 2015), and, most notably, their debut full-length album, Fluke (May 2016).

A sumptuously animated, coming-of-age tale about the daughter of a famous painter finding her own voice. By award-winning director Keiichi Hara (Colorful), produced by Production I.G. As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently inside his studio. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches–sold under the name of her father–are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. Shy and reserved in public, in the studio O-Ei is as brash and uninhibited as her father, smoking a pipe while sketching drawings that would make contemporary Japanese ladies blush. But despite this fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. Miss Hokusai's bustling Edo (present day Tokyo) is filled with yokai spirits, dragons, and conniving tradesmen, while O-Ei's relationships with her demanding father and blind younger sister provide a powerful emotional underpinning to this sumptuously-animated coming-of-age tale.

Hell bent on changing the perception of "urban" music, Oxymorrons have cultivated a signature sound that seamlessly blends hip-hop and rock.

For fifteen years, the folks at The Bunker have presented dance music from across the spectrum in venues that have varied just as widely (basements, lofts, warehouses, clubs, etc). We're excited to welcome them back to the 'days for another edition of their intimate The Bunker Limited. Here's what they have to say about it: As soon as we saw the space at Ridgewood's newest venue, Nowadays, and heard the incredible SBS sound system installed there, we knew it was time to take The Bunker Limited out of hibernation. After re-launching the classic one DJ all night format with a brilliant 8 hour set from our resident DJ Patrick Russell in February, we turn the reins over to Mike Servito for the March Edition. It's been six years since Servito officially joined The Bunker as a resident, and it's been incredible to watch his ascent from Detroit's best-kept secret to reluctant Brooklyn underground hero to the massive recognition and popularity across worldwide dancefloors that has followed. With no studio productions released until 2016 (his first was a brilliant remix of Justin Cudmore for HNYTRX that topped many year end charts), his rise was based purely on his exceptional talents as a DJ – no easy feat in today's scene. While Servito has headlined nearly every relevant house and techno party in New York City, it's rare to see him stretch out for an extended set, and he's never played for 8 hours, so this will be a special treat indeed.

Rough on the outside but with a soft spot inside, Alien wins over the hearts of the young Spring Breakers, and leads them on a Spring Break they never could have imagined.

Born March 19, 1919, pianist and composer Lennie Tristano has come to be considered one of the most influential jazz artists of the 1950s, as much for his performances and recordings, as for his unique approach to teaching improvisation in a manner that became a bridge from bebop to later styles.

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

(Support Women Artists Now) Day, an annual event on the last Saturday of March that celebrates women artists. There will be a Q&A and reception following the screening. Overview: Winnie Madikizela Mandela is one of the most misunderstood and intriguingly powerful contemporary female political figures. Her rise and seeming fall from grace, bear the hallmarks of epic tragedy. For the first time, this film pieces together and properly considers her life and contribution to the struggle to bring down Apartheid from the inside, with intimate insight from those who were closest to her and with testimony from the enemies who sought to extinguish her radical capacity to shake up the order of things. While her husband was kept, paradoxically, both safe and morally uncontaminated, in jail for 27 long years, Winnie rode the tumultuous violence of a life of struggle far from the safety of exile abroad, eyeball-to-eyeball with a seemingly immutable and vicious apartheid enemy controlling the country.

GIBBZ is a renaissance man. After a childhood spent acting in C­list horror movies and ballroom dancing, he received a "degree" from Berklee College of Music. There he focused on music production, aiding in his future full time position as an audio engineer. After 5 years on the road and in studios with international touring acts, he realized being an engineer is a thankless, miserable existence. Luckily, his path had led him to working for a crew that went onto form the Lowtemp record label, including Gramatik and Exmag. They convinced him that it's OK to drink copious amounts of alcohol and make everyone within a 30 ft radius uncomfortable. Out of this drunken, obnoxious, offensive mess of a man, GIBBZ was born. GIBBZ can now be found singing and dancing to his own brand of electro pop, recently touring with the likes of Cherub, Ghost Beach and The Floozies.

Zebra w/ Flashback LI (Eddie Trunk & D'Angelico Guitars Present) - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill March 31, 2018 - New York

Zebra galloped out of New Orleans in early 1975. The trio, consisting of Randy Jackson, Felix Hanemann and Guy Gelso, concocted their moniker from a 1926 Vogue magazine cover and soon won over the South and East Coast. In 1982 Zebra's self-titled debut album went gold and was the fastest selling debut album in Atlantic Records' history thanks to the radio and MTV airplay of "Tell Me What You Want" and "Who's Behind the Door?". Veteran producer Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick) also helmed the follow-up, "No Tellin' Lies". The songs range from the hard-rocking "Wait Until the Summer's Gone" to the Beatle-esque ballad, "Lullaby". With the release of their third Atlantic album "3.V", Zebra took their career one step farther: the album's credits read "Produced by Randy Jackson and Zebra". Thus, for the very first time, the group gained complete control of its creative output. A collection of the finest songs they have ever written.

Since moving to New York City in 2000, tenor saxophonist Wayne Escoffery has become one of the Jazz world's most talented rising stars and in-demand sidemen. At only 36 he has recorded seven CDs as a leader and been on numerous recordings as a sideman. Wayne began his professional New York career touring and recording with The Eric Reed Septet. In 2001 he joined The Lonnie Plaxico Group and Abdulah Ibrahim's Akaya. At that time he also became a steady member of the Mingus Dynasty, Orchestra, and the 2011 Grammy Award winning Mingus Big Band. In 2004 award winning producer, arranger and trumpeter Don Sickler asked Wayne to be a part of Ben Riley's Monk legacy Septet, an innovative piano-less group dedicated to carrying on the legacy of jazz great Thelonious Monk. At this time Wayne was also touring with Jazz At Lincoln Center's Music of the Masters, two groups of musicians hand picked by Wynton Marsalis to perform the music of Dexter Gordon and Miles Davis. The Music of Dexter Gordon featured Wayne with Saxophonists Jimmy Greene and Gerry Welden; backed by Dexter Gordon alumni George Cables, Rufus Reid and Leroy Williams. The Music of Miles Davis featured Wayne with trumpet great Eddie Henderson and alto saxophonist Steve Wilson in the front line; backed by David Kikoski, Ed Howard and Miles Davis veteran Jimmy Cobb on drums. In 2006 Wayne secured one of the most coveted gigs in jazz: a frontline position in Tom Harrell's working quintet. He is currently a member of the quintet and to date has recorded four CDs with the group and co-produced Harrell's last three releases Prana Dance, Roman Nights and The Time of the Sun. In addition to receiving accolades as a part of some of the last true "apprenticeship" opportunities of our era, Wayne receives regular praise for his recordings as a leader. In a review of his 2004 recording If Dreams Come True (a collaborative project with his wife vocalist Carolyn Leonhart) AllAboutJazz.com's Senior Editor John Kelman wrote "Escoffery's command of the instrument is impressive, able to navigate broad intervallic leaps with a sound that is robust in all registers," Ben Ratliff (noted Jazz critic of The New York Times) writes "[A] young, self-assured, hard-swinging tenor saxophonist." Jazziz Magazine calls him "One of Modern jazz's foremost Saxophonists" and Charles Mingus' widow and Mingus Band director calls Wayne "One of the most talented, poetic artists"

Prurience­ makes its US debut at Works & Process at the Guggenheim following a sold-out run at the Southbank Centre in London. After interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, British writer and performer Christopher Green presents an immersive theater experience inviting audiences to attend a fictional self-help group that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed. Questioning the side effects of porn consumption, Green asks audiences to consider if society is in the grip of an actual addiction or a moral panic, through increasingly distorting layers of reality and theatricality. Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs. Praise for Prurience The Times (UK): "A disorientating, provocative experience. . . . Theatrically the piece is audacious, springing a series of head-spinning surprises. This is the kind of art that leaves its mark on you. Unnerving, and uncomfortably compelling." Finalist, TBC Award (for productions that defy traditional categories), The Offies (The Off West End Theatre Awards), London This program takes place in The Wright restaurant at the Guggenheim and has open seating. $45, $40 members and Friends of Works & Process.

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will place front and center Toscanini's recordings through ongoing live demonstrations and free public programs devoted to the craft of preserving and archiving the technology he helped define during his lifetime.

Open Mike Eagle might not have all the answers, but few artists in hip-hop, music, or American life are asking smarter questions. In a landscape governed by ceaseless babble, flashing lights, and hollow lies, Eagle harmonizes into the void so we don't have to. On this descent into the digital trenches, Eagle teams up with British producer, Paul White for Hella Personal Film Festival. Released on Mello Music Group, the full collaboration finds White behind the SP-1200s, conjuring a psychedelic strain of soul-funk, booming drums, and 21st century crate-digging in tropical attics of the imagination. On the microphone, the Chicago-bred, LA-based, Eagle artfully breaks down the banalities and perils of the modern condition. Recorded in London, Eagle's new album continues where his 2014 masterpiece, Dark Comedy, left off. It's anxiety-riddled but whimsical, addicted to and scornful of social media, stuffed with old wrestling in-jokes and film snippets. Self-aware admissions blend into attacks on societal double standards. Known for alchemical solo work and collaborations with Danny Brown, Homeboy Sandman, and Mos Def, this is White's first proper union with Eagle. The two artists bonded over the notion of diversity. The process started out with rough demos, which White ended up finishing in post-production -- playing guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, percussion and pieces of wood found in a forest. Its genius ultimately comes from the pair mining a deep vein of emotional content -- a discussion of the things we feel that you don't say. A movie that hits so accurately it's almost uncomfortable.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents Nederlands Dans Theater Sol León and Paul Lightfoot - The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Peter B Lewis Theater March 31, 2018 - New York

Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents Nederlands Dans Theater Sol León and Paul Lightfoot Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 7:30pm Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents Nederlands Dans Theater with work by house choreographers to the company Sol León and Paul Lightfoot on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 7:30pm. This performance offers behind-the-scenes access to the Nederlands Dans Theater's U.S. tour. Company dancers perform highlights from Sol León and Paul Lightfoot's Shoot the Moon (2006), with music by Philip Glass; and Singulière Odyssée (2017), featuring music by Max Richter. León and Lightfoot participate in a discussion moderated by New York City Baller principal dancer Tyler Angle. Nederlands Dans Theater Nederlands Dans Theater is one of the world's leading contemporary dance companies, under artistic guidance of choreographer Paul Lightfoot since 2011. The Dutch troupe is based in The Hague, and performs for over 150.000 visitors in Europe as well as in the USA, Asia and Australia. French newspaper Le Figaro described the company as "...one of the seven wonders in the world of dance"and in 2017, British newspaper The Telegraph wrote: ""Every now and then, one encounters a dance show of such visual originality, such technical brilliance and such emotional potency that you feel you are witnessing the reinvention of the art form." Since its foundation in 1959, this pioneering company has built a rich repertoire of over 600 ballets, by master choreographers such as Ji?í Kylián, Hans van Manen, Sol León & Paul Lightfoot, associate choreographers Crystal Pite, and Marco Goecke and high-profiled guests such as Johan Inger, Medhi Walerski, Alexander Ekman, Gabriela Carrizo, Franck Chartier, Hofesh Shechter, Edward Clug, and Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar. "Every season's programmes include works of choreographers with a clear message: this is who I am, and this is my aesthetical dance and figurative language", say Artistic Director Paul Lightfoot. "I invite choreographers who can strike a certain atmosphere, emotion and essence the second the curtain opens, and who are leading in that area internationally. Every single NDT dancer possesses a fabulous, classical based technique, but ultimately it's about their extraordinary capacity to pick up on a wide range styles and their exquisite talent to transform and breathe the piece." During their US tour, the company will perform Shoot the Moon (2006) and Singulière Odyssée (2017) by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot and The Statement (2016) by associate choreographer Crystal Pite.

As TOKiMONSTA, California producer Jennifer Lee's charted a fascinating career over the past seven years, and Lune Rouge is her exhilarating next step. The third proper long-player from TOKiMONSTA is both a logical progression of her sound and a surprising left turn from an artist that rarely ceases to surprise. A smoky, patient, and altogether lovely collection, Lune Rouge mixes modern sensibilities with old-school sounds to make for a heady brew of moonlit music. Lune Rouge is the culmination of all the experiences I've encountered so far," Lee explains the album's genesis, which she started work on in late 2015 before being diagnosed with a rare neurovascular condition called Moyamoya. A year later, after two major brain surgeries and extensive rehabilitation, Lune Rouge was finished. "During its creation, I faced some of the most difficult and uplifting moments of my life. Seeing myself at the edge of my own mortality and how I chose to move past is a story told in this album." Lee's work as TOKiMONSTA gained widespread recognition from the very start: her 2010 debut album, Midnight Menu, saw release on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint and cemented her reputation as a formidable presence of the then-emerging West Coast beat scene. 2011's Brainfeeder release Creature Dreams EP expanded on Midnight Menu's palette with successful forays into vocal-led cuts thanks to the presence of regular collaborator Gavin Turek; the 2013 LP and Ultra Music debut Half Shadows found Lee exploring darker shades of her sound with guests such as Kool Keith and MNDR in tow.

Historic Richmond Town's James Guyon Jr. Guyon Tavern Series Presents Harbortown - Guyon Tavern at Historic Richmond Town March 31, 2018 - Staten Island

The Guyon Tavern (circa 1819) serves up an authentic 19th century acoustic music experience with a warm and resonant sound quality that is rarely found anymore, thanks to the original aged wood and plaster, and the unmistakable handmade construction. About Harbortown Award-winning songwriter Bob Wright, a multi-instrumentalist steeped in the American musical roots traditions often referred to as Americana, presents an evening of songs about Staten Island and its harbor environs. Bob sets the stage with vocals, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and songwriting. He is joined by Bill Doerge on double bass, guitar, 12 string guitar, accordion, piano, keyboards, and vocals; Bob Conroy on vocals, banjo, guitar; and Jan Christensen on vocals, and 6 and 12 string guitars. This coterie of musical friends presents an evening of mountain music that meets the sea. A native of Staten Island, Bob has been playing music since childhood. His songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past.. All performances are at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Daniel Ellsworth + The Great Lakes is the sound life makes when it becomes ecstasy. It is the noise childhood makes when it surrenders to itself and becomes an ecstatic life. It is somehow simultaneously sweetness, energy, softness, and seduction. A strange alchemy that comes about in a town like Nashville — where they formed in 2010. It's a place of internal Peter Pans. But there are a rare few who can be born from Nashville's island of youth, insanity, and silliness only to survive and age into a continent of thirty-something honesty and humanity. DE+TGL is one of those rare few. Wise Lost Boys with a conscience, but still a thirsty, boyish spark. That is Daniel Ellsworth (lead vox, keys), Joel Wren (drums), Timon Lance (guitar), and Marshall Skinner (bass). A silky, organic monster made from the remnants of pop swagger, sunglasses, self-aware grown-up realism, road trips, anxiety, and just plain, pounding fun.

Many Blessings Many Blessings is the solo effort of Guitarist/Vocalist Ethan McCarthy of the bands Primitive Man & Vermin Womb. "Ripe Earth" does not evoke romantic sensations in the least. No, instead we get a thoroughly frightening descent into the innermost recesses of stark, damaging aural depravity. That lowering comes with the gripping dissonance of far-encompassing, noise-laden sonicscapes and ambient bleakness presented here." ~ Riffrelevant.com

Three–time GRAMMY Award nominee Ravi Coltrane has worked as a sideman with such leaders as Elvin Jones, Jack DeJohnette, and Geri Allen; recorded six noteworthy albums as a leader, and founded the independent record label RKM. This week, he brings his celebrated trio to the stand for six celebratory nights of creative improvisation. His special guests reflect a middle point between his own work and the work of his father, the legendary John Coltrane: Tomoki Sanders is the son of Pharaoh Sanders, one of the elder Coltrane's most celebrated collaborators, Brandee Younger shares the chosen instrument of Ravi's mother Alice Coltrane, and Ralph Alessi is one of his closest musical partners. "When you experience events like Coltrane's set, you wonder how one can ever replicate the live buzz of that room on record. It's done time and again, of course, but Wednesday night's Coltrane set really drove home how sensational live jazz is when it's performed winningly. At its best, live jazz is one of the most wondrous highs in the world; Coltrane and company proved it many times over." (San Francisco Chronicle) Ravi Coltrane - tenor saxophone Dezron Douglas - bass Allan Mednard - drums

The Dean Ween Group will be hitting the road this Spring in celebration of the release of its sophomore album, Rock2. The new album is being released worldwide March 9, 2018 by Schnitzel Records as limited editions of 180 gram colored vinyl with gatefold sleeve and specially colored CD in digi-pac respectively as well as via digital retailers and streaming services. Dean Ween – aka The Deaner – recorded the album at his dedicated studio facility in Lambertville, NJ, across the river from his native New Hope, PA. Here's how the Deaner describes the genesis of this new body of work: "A lot has changed since I released my first 'solo album' a couple of years ago. "Since 1984, I dedicated my life to recording in all of my free time. Later on, after living with Aaron for a few years, I moved into an apartment with my girlfriend (who is now my wife; Hi baby!) She would get up at 5:30 am to go to work teaching and I would record all day while she was gone. When she came home I would stop. When she went to sleep I'd go over to Aaron's place at Brookridge Farms and record all night with him, or Guy Heller, or Billy Fowler. "30 years later and I've found myself back at that same place, at a different address, with the best equipment money can buy. See, that's the thing about being a musician (I dare not call myself an artist, although technically I guess I am). Anyway, success affords you better tools for your trade—money buys you time as well. There are no excuses when you have shit like Neve consoles and Neumann microphones, that shit is there to be used. "For 4 years now I have been in my studio recording all day and all night, every day and every night when I'm not on tour. A song-a-day sounds far-fetched I know… we usually average at least 2 per day. Sorting through all of this has become a task unto itself, I still haven't caught up or begun to catalog everything I've done since 1984 so there is a log jam in the filing and archiving process. "This album is a snapshot of the fall of 2016——there have been a lot of tunes recorded before then and even more since then, but this is my second official solo album. These were written for this sole purpose and recorded with the entire lineup: the best band in the world, Ween — Claude Coleman Jr., Dave Dreiwitz, and Glenn McClelland, also the other best band in the world, the lineup of the DWG — Mike Dillon, Bill Fowler, Ray Kubian, Scott Rednor, and the other 50 members and usual suspects.

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother.

Cathode Love is a book and companion LP featuring carefully curated writings and musical content focused around a central, celebratory impulse of suggestive, decadent, and symbolically-charged works in film, theory, visual art, poetry, fiction and essays, all tapping on the door of a new, synaesthetic sensibility. Cathode Love is wishing to move us toward a new aesthetic culture, one that resides "away from the mundane reality" (and certainly from banal art). An irregular almanac of irregular pleasures, an untimely messenger, a hope for catching a glimpse of light in the mirror of impossible beauty across shattered art-forms...Cathode Love, in its book/LP form, is published in the spirit of an aesthetic treatise of sorts. An exploratory document, and finally an accidental anthology of suggestions to run with. From the fiery intensity of Antonin Artaud's language of theater to the passionate elevation of sleaze to academic loftiness in Stephen Thrower's writings, this strange new collection of wild flowers if a trip to the jungle, not the zoo. Nothing is caged, all is free. And that is it's beauty. Cathode Love is, at the very least, a new window to actively "dream into" regarding expression and interpretation. From simply seeing "bad" films in a new light to high-minded semiotic theory, to spiritually profound synaesthetic experiences of art, it presents a case on its own accord. It simply is a vantage point, and needs to be observed. From the films of the language-shattering "fantastique" tradition, all the way to mystical essays on semiotics by Michel Leiris, Cathode Love is the framework of the mirror we can dream into.

After interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, British writer and performer Christopher Green presents an immersive theater experience inviting audiences to attend a fictional self-help group that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed.

Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs. Casting to be announced. "[Prurience] tests the limits of theatre... at its fiendish, exhilarating best it makes you question not just attitudes to porn but how we experience reality." - The Guardian (UK) "Theatrically the piece is audacious, springing a series of head-spinning surprises. This is the kind of art that leaves its mark on you. Unnerving, and uncomfortably compelling." - The Times (UK) "Green and company confound us, drawing profound attention to the warped notions of pleasure, pain and privacy that are peddled by contemporary pornography." - The Stage (UK) "Prurience will leave you guessing and thinking long after you've left the theatre." - Spy In The Stalls (UK) Prurience has been created with support from the Wellcome Trust.

Since throwing warehouse shows around New York in 2011, the five Brooklyn natives have tossed together vintage astral funk, soulful complex R&B, and dusted-out hip-hop which evokes a newfound genre-less form of music originating in the basement of a Bedford-Stuyvesant home studio where the band begin making music together in high school. Co-founded by lead vocalist Elbee Thrie and keyboardist Aja Grant, whose brother Bari is the bassist, the band self-released hits like "Why iii Love the Moon" which is featured in EA Sports' NBA Live 16 and "End of the Night," and was praised by none other than Tyler the Creator as one of his favorite songs of 2016. The dynamic quintet also features Elijah Rawk on guitar and drummer Matthew Byas.

It has many names—Mid-Life Crisis, Quarter-Life Crisis, Post-College Crisis, Dark Night of the Soul—but it's a crossroads we all come to, at one point or another: "It's that pressure to be who you want to be, but also what other people expect you to be," says Zuli, the nom de plume of Long Island, NY-based psych-pop rocker Ryan Camenzuli. "I recorded this album with that in mind. I was writing from an emotional, weight-of-the-world-on-your-shoulders perspective." The 25-year-old rocker is referring to his debut full-length album, On Human Freakout Mountain, out October 20 via Swoon City Music. It's a snapshot of Zuli and his tight group of friends—a crew called CON TEMPLATE, a collective of artists, designers, videographers, photographers, and musicians. "It's our own in-house creative design team," says Zuli, who enlisted the help of his collective to work on the album.

Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, the Subdudes have quietly become one of America's national music treasures. The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock 'n' roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you'll ever hear from any five musicians. Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band's substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée, for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass.

Annual Sociology Conference 2018 'Authentic Myths, Fabricated Truths and The Ordering of Society' - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall March 31, 2018 - New York

Brexit and the election of Donald Trump are events propelled by the widespread use of misinformation, and manipulation of truths and facts. Though these events might appear novel and unprecedented, signaled by terms like "Post-Truth," the distortion and fabrication of truths and trustworthiness to order and construct society are not a new phenomena. Fallacies, "fake news", fabricated realities, and delusions have been historically recurrent in the ordering of society, classification of social categories, and management of behaviors, customs, and identities. Religious superstitions and dogmas prevented scientific inquiry into the nature of the universe; Darwinist theories justified racism; scientific claims about HIV being "gay-cancer"; Conspiracy theories were instrumental to legitimize violence against Jews during the Dreyfus Affair; ancient myths confirmed the historical claims of nations to territories and subsequent ethnic-cleansing; false intelligence reports legitimated the invasion of Iraq; and fraudulent credit ratings stimulated market expansion and collapse.

Libertyville, IL native Ike Reilly is one of America's best contemporary songwriters. The former gravedigger and hotel doorman made his major label debut in 2001 with the Universal release of the stunning Salesmen and Racists. He has recently completed his seventh studio recording, Born On Fire, and his live performances both as a solo performer and as the leader of the ferocious Ike Reilly Assassination have garnered him a cult following and high praise from critics. David Carr of the New York Times said, "Ike Reilly is a kind of natural resource, mined from the bedrock of music. All the values that make rock important to people—storytelling, melody, rage, laughter—are part and parcel of every Ike Reilly show I have ever seen. One of the best touring acts in the country, Reilly's band takes it as a personal challenge to upend and amaze every room they play in."

Lula Pena (Part of the NY Fado Festival) - Pace University - Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts March 31, 2018 - New York

"Armed with nothing but her guitar and her smoky alto, Lula Pena was utterly transfixing… this artist took her music to elemental roots…" -NPR Lula Pena is a unique singer, songwriter and guitarist with a highly individual take on fado. Her deeply emotional songs cross borders from Andalucia to Greece and Sardinia to American blues. Her deep, commanding yet sensitive voice blends fado roots with colors of Portuguese folk music, French chanson, Cape Verdean morna, and Brazilian bossa nova. Her inventive take on fado and other styles of music has developed a devoted following worldwide, a kind of international secret society whose ranks grow with each of her too rare appearances. Pena's highly acclaimed latest album Archivo Pittoresco (she only has released three over 20 years) on the Crammed label was released in 2017. Curated by Isabel Soffer/Live Sounds

Félicia Atkinson: The Candle (La Bougie) / Afrikan Sciences & Sassacyprigo - Issue Project Room March 31, 2018 - Brooklyn

Saturday, March 31st, ISSUE presents Parisian-born artist Félicia Atkinson presenting a brand new performance involving an imaginary dialogue between the poems of Francis Ponge (1899-1988) and texts of her own, in French and in English, accompanied by electronics, voice and piano. The evening also features Afrikan Sciences & Sassacyprigo presenting a performance of nuanced soundscapes, mindful movements, and rhythms that conjure different temporalities. Atkinson's distinct practice incorporates diffuse poetic atmospheres and pointillistically rendered sounds that constantly suspend and re-introduce themselves. Often moving to emphasize the relationship between music and sculpture -- sound and its spatialization -- Atkinson's work concentrates upon the implicit narrative of a "poetics of things" happening in sound. Here, like in the poems of Ponge, a profound "readymade" empathy toward objects, technology, and music emerges. Atkinson is also co-director for the label Shelter Press alongside Bartolomé Sanson, which has released works from Ben Vida, Gábor Lázár, Tomoko Sauvage, D/P/I, Stephen O'Malley, and others.

The area around Washington Square in Greenwich Village was home for more than a century to many of America's finest painters and sculptors, among them Winslow Homer, John Sloan, William Glackens, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Edward Hopper, and Daniel Chester French. With the creation of the iconic Washington Arch by architect Stanford White in 1892 the Square also became the subject of countless works of art, including stellar examples by Gilded Age artists. Artists resided at 3 Washington Square North, the University Building, and the Benedict on Washington Square East, and in the many rooming houses that once lined Washington Square South and overlooked the Square. Sculptors lived and worked in the alley and mews behind the Greek Revival houses and other 19th century mansions on Washington Square North that once housed gardens, carriage houses and the stables of some of the city's leading citizens, including merchants, statesmen, philanthropists, and art collectors, among them the founding President of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. (At the conclusion of the tour, attendees will be given free admission to a special venue, so please plan to spend a little extra time.)

Award-winning poet and performer Denice Frohman joins the Aizuri Quartet for The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, Haydn's profound account of Christ's final utterances at Calvary. Commissioned in 1786 for the Good Friday services at a church in Cádiz, Spain and later adapted for string quartet, Haydn's work originally featured a priest interpreting the titular words attributed to Jesus. In this updated version, Frohman replaces those words with new poems—all written especially for The Met performance.

The Dean Ween Group will be hitting the road this Spring in celebration of the release of its sophomore album, Rock2. The new album is being released worldwide March 9, 2018 by Schnitzel Records as limited editions of 180 gram colored vinyl with gatefold sleeve and specially colored CD in digi-pac respectively as well as via digital retailers and streaming services. Dean Ween – aka The Deaner – recorded the album at his dedicated studio facility in Lambertville, NJ, across the river from his native New Hope, PA. Here's how the Deaner describes the genesis of this new body of work: "A lot has changed since I released my first 'solo album' a couple of years ago. "Since 1984, I dedicated my life to recording in all of my free time. Later on, after living with Aaron for a few years, I moved into an apartment with my girlfriend (who is now my wife; Hi baby!) She would get up at 5:30 am to go to work teaching and I would record all day while she was gone. When she came home I would stop. When she went to sleep I'd go over to Aaron's place at Brookridge Farms and record all night with him, or Guy Heller, or Billy Fowler. "30 years later and I've found myself back at that same place, at a different address, with the best equipment money can buy. See, that's the thing about being a musician (I dare not call myself an artist, although technically I guess I am). Anyway, success affords you better tools for your trade—money buys you time as well. There are no excuses when you have shit like Neve consoles and Neumann microphones, that shit is there to be used.

"The Danbees are an American rock & roll band based in New York City that was started by college classmates Mark Slotoroff (vocals/guitar) and Wade McManus (drums/vocals) in 2014. Upon graduating from Ithaca College, Mark called upon childhood friend Shane Matthews (lead guitar) to join the band while Wade reached out to longtime friend and previous band mate Sam Enright (bass). The Danbees are straight up rock & roll. Categorized by their riff heavy songs and lyrics about faltered love stories or shitty girlfriends, they excel on stage with their live show. Whether it's excessive partying, band members rolling on the floor, or an impromptu drum solo, The Danbees have established themselves as rock & roll for the modern era."

Natalie Diaz begins a recent craft talk, "Building The Emotional Image," considering the interplay between images, story, and history in her poems, reflecting on how her images "mostly come from my home, the place where my brain was formed and where all the little electrical circuits in my brain learned to fire." In this course, we'll follow her lead, exploring the infinite possibilities of our own obsessions, interests, and memories. Each session will be devoted to generative writing, the creation of new work, and chances to discuss the surprising drafts that emerge. And to illuminate and complicate our thinking, we will read a dynamic array of contemporary poems (Aracelis Girmay, Patricia Smith, Vahni Capildeo, Anne Carson, Sarah Howe, sam sax, Layli Long Soldier, Fady Joudah, and more). Open to experiments, we will unsettle habits and find inspiration in the unconventional.

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal - Grey Art Gallery Through March 31, 2018 - New York

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal is the first U.S. museum exhibition to present the extraordinary drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Spain, 1852–1934), the father of modern neuroscience. Cajal's astonishing depictions of the brain—which combine cutting-edge scientific knowledge with consummate draftsmanship—offer much greater clarity than photographs, so much so that they are still in wide use today.Featuring approximately 80 of Cajal's drawings, the show will situate them within the history of scientific illustration from the 16th to 19th centuries, and juxtapose them with contemporary visualizations of the brain. Organized by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in collaboration with the Cajal Institute, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by Abrams.

NYU Skirball will present U.S. premieres of two acclaimed international theater productions that confront today’s political and social unrest: War and Peace, from Germany’s Gob Squad theater company, is an immersive theater/video adaptation of Tolstoy’s masterwork, running March 29 – 31; and The Dictatorship of Coolness, a raucous social satire reflecting on art, culture and greed, presented by Chile’s Teatro La Re-Sentida, running April 6 and 7. Gob Squad: War and Peace March 29 – 31 “This feels like one of the most impossible, beautiful, courageous and epic theatrical experiences you can imagine.” The Guardian (UK) Gob Squad, Berlin’s notorious and challenging arts collective, makes live video performances that unsettle the lines between scripted and the improvised, performer and bystander, fiction and life. Inspired by Tolstoy’s War and Peace, this bitingly funny satire views the complexity of war from the comfort of peace. “Featuring” Marilyn Monroe, Robert Oppenheimer, Walt Disney, Napoleon, Lenin, and Donald Trump, the play is set in a literary salon, where audience members join the cast in a live theater/video performance in which art and daily life, history and the present, reality and fiction, blur. War and Peace marks Gob Squad’s third trip to New York from their home base in Berlin. They are a collective of artists from Germany and the U.K. who have been co-conceiving, co-directing and co-performing interdisciplinary “live events” since 1994 challenges the often-hierarchical strictures of the theater. For over 20 years, Gob Squad have been searching for new ways to combine media and performance, producing stage shows, video installations, radio plays, interactive live films and urban interventions. Motivated by a desire to elevate the everyday and empower audience members to step beyond their traditional role as passive spectators, Gob Squad set up often absurdly utopian scenarios where meaningful collective experience and genuine encounters involving passers-by and audience members are suddenly possible. www.gobsquad.com NYU SKIRBALL NYU Skirball, located in the heart of Greenwich Village, is one of New York City’s major presenters of international work and has been the premier venue for cultural and performing arts events in lower Manhattan since 2003.

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition. Woman of Algiers reexamines Baya's career within Surrealist, "outsider," and North-African post-colonial art contexts.

With every record, Damon McMahon aka Amen Dunes has transformed, and Freedom is the project's boldest leap yet. The first LP, D.I.A., was a gnarled underground classic, recorded and played completely by McMahon in a trailer in upstate New York over the course of a month and left as is. The fourth and most recent LP Love, a record that enlisted Godspeed! You Black Emperor as both producers and backing band (along with an additional motley crew including Elias Bender Rønnenfelt of Iceage and Colin Stetson), featured songs confidently far removed from the damaged drug pop of Amen Dunes' trailer-park origins. Love took two years to make. Freedom took three. The first iteration of the album was recorded in 2016 following a year of writing in Lisbon and NYC, but it was scrapped completely. Uncertain how to move forward, McMahon brought in a powerful set of collaborators and old friends, and began anew. Along with his core band members, including Parker Kindred (Antony & The Johnsons, Jeff Buckley) on drums, came Chris Coady (Beach House) as producer and Delicate Steve on guitars. This is the first Amen Dunes record that looks back to the electronic influences of McMahon's youth with the aid of revered underground musician Panoram from Rome. McMahon discovered Panoram's music in a shop in London and became enamored. Following this the two became friends and here Panoram finds his place as a significant, if subtle, contributor to the record. The bulk of the songs were recorded at the famed Electric Lady Studios in NYC (home of Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, D'Angelo), and finished at the similarly legendary Sunset Sound in L.A., where McMahon, Nick Zinner, and session bass player extraordinaire Gus Seyffert (Beck, Bedouine) fleshed out the recordings.

Family friendly screenings run most Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00 a.m. in the Bartos Screening Room.

3/4. 2017. Bulgaria. Directed by Ilian Metev. In Bulgarian; English subtitles. 82 min. New York Premiere 3/4 evokes the intimacies, joys, and tensions of a contemporary Bulgarian family facing an uncertain future; the father is an astrophysicist with his head in the clouds, his son a waywardly antic teenager, his daughter a gifted but anxious pianist. Illian Metev (whose previous film was the gripping documentary Sofia's Last Ambulance) won the Filmmakers of the Present prize at the 2017 Locarno Festival for this fiction feature debut, a gracefully shot, uncommonly tender character study that plays like an exquisite piece of chamber music.

The last time JT Almon and Michael Magnan threw a party at Nowadays, we didn't turn on the lights until — well, by the time they were done, we didn't need to turn on the lights. We're excited to welcome the Fruits and Vegetable fellas back to the 'days for another soiree, this time with assistance from their friend, Kenya. Here's what they've got to say about it: For our March edition at Nowadays, FNV is excited to welcome Kenya, one of our favorite underground DJs in NYC, to the mix. We met him through a friend at the very first Fruits and Vegetables function where, by chance, he happened to be on hand with a USB stick to help us finish up the late, late morning set. He wowed us so much that he's become a staple at every FNV since. Kenya, who hails from Tokyo, plays a masterful hypnotic and driving techno set that is just begging to be heard on a proper sound system.

A Central American drug lord snuffs out one of James Bond's friends and the world's most famous super secret agent isn't having one bit of it. Vowing revenge, he breaks up with MI6 and heads down to Key West with vengeance on his mind. Quite brutal for a Bond flick, License to Kill sets a mean-mugged Timothy Dalton up against an iguana-stroking, pinky-ringed kingpin played by Robert Davi. Critics thought it was mean – but they just can't stand that Florida heat.

In the film that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas introduce the world to dreamy 1930's archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones, we see him hired by the United States government and pitted in a race against time to locate the mysterious and supernatural Ark of the Covenant before it falls into the hands of the Nazis. Or, more specifically, Adolf Hitler and his regime of Nazi supporters who seek to use the Biblical artifact's power as a means for world domination. On his quest he meets a heroine with guts, supernatural spirits, and snakes (he hates snakes). You know, just a day in the life…

The Optimist is the story of a young man's journey through a intangible world in pursuit of discovering himself and empowering those around him through his artistry. This is the tale of a starving artist; living and breathing for a craft that can truly change the world and how the people in it see themselves and one another. The path of the optimist is one through an ever changing, dark and uncertain universe full of pitfalls and heartache yet illuminated by the sheer and unwavering forces of hope and effervescence. This production takes audience into a world not unlike their own to bring forth childlike wonder, to appreciate those who work so diligently to reach even the smallest stages and to peer into the small yet powerful elements that connect us.

Hand-selected by the artist to accompany his exhibition Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, this film series screens on Saturdays during the month of March in the New Media Theater. The Exorcist (1973), dir. William Friedkin, 122 min. "[The Exorcist] was shown to Vo by his horror-film-obsessed mother at the age of seven, when it no doubt made a terrifyingly indelible impression. The film's interrogation of religious faith and doubt, its depiction of the appropriated and dislocated body, and its themes of parental nurture and neglect can all be similarly traced in the artist's work." – exhibition curator Katherine Brinson One of the most profitable horror movies ever made and the first example of the genre to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, this tale of an exorcism is based loosely on reported actual events. It centers on a young girl's bizarre and distressing behavior, which is identified by a local priest as a demonic possession. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert to help with the difficult job.

"…this fine pianist and singer is a throwback to the long-gone days when performers had to know any song that was thrown at them, and then toss it off with authority.

En attendant les hirondelles (Until the Birds Return). 2017. Algeria/France/Germany. Directed by Karim Moussaoui. In Arabic and French; English subtitles. 113 min. New York Premiere A property developer is witness to random street violence. A pair of secret lovers make their way across the desert. A doctor is accused of having a criminal past. In these three interconnected tales, exciting newcomer Karim Moussaoui—whom critics at Cannes compared to Abbas Kiarostami and Leos Carax—takes the pulse of modern-day Algiers, a country once riven by colonial occupation and sectarian warfare yet still abundant in beauty and promise.

Based on the 1910 horror novel by Gaston Leroux, which has been adapted into countless films, The Phantom of the Opera follows a deformed composer who haunts the grand Paris Opera House. Sheltered from the outside world in an underground cavern, the lonely, romantic man tutors and composes operas for Christine, a gorgeous young soprano star-to-be. As Christine's star rises, and a handsome suitor from her past enters the picture, the Phantom grows mad, terrorizing the opera house owners and company with his murderous ways. Still, Christine finds herself drawn to the mystery man. Audiences agree—The Phantom of the Opera is Broadway's longest-running hit. Ever.

Before HAMILTON reinvented musical theatre, its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, wowed Broadway with his first musical. IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical!

In an age of Facebook, Instagram, and other forms of online networking, and at a moment when definitions of "friendship" are undergoing rapid change, "Our Troubled Youth" traces a complicated history of friendship before social media – through the artist's personal archive of 1980s and 90s punk ephemera, through items from the Fales Library collection, and through an installation of original photographs and video. While many recent exhibitions and publications have focused on punk, there's been less attention given to the friendships and epistolary traditions that were at the heart of the scene. This show centers on these (coded feminine) aspects of punk in the form of confessional letters, mail art, and embarrassing expressions of fandom. The exhibition also keeps in focus how the word "friendship" has long operated as a euphemism for queer bonds. Queer friendships were also at the heart of New York's punk arts and nightlife communities, a history of social networks that is encapsulated in the Fales Library. Through these multiple conduits, "Our Troubled Youth" pictures an underground narrative of friendship, while also considering how archives function to create both personal and official histories.

Born March 19, 1919, pianist and composer Lennie Tristano has come to be considered one of the most influential jazz artists of the 1950s, as much for his performances and recordings, as for his unique approach to teaching improvisation in a manner that became a bridge from bebop to later styles. Tristano was also a regular at the original Birdland from 1949 through the early 1960s. For this celebration, Birdland brings together a group of jazz all-stars to explore Tristano's style, compositions, and influence.

ADMISSIONS is a new play that explodes the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America. Sherri Rosen-Mason (Jessica Hecht) is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. And alongside her husband, the school's Headmaster, they've largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results.

Stomp is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes—and yes, even the kitchen sink. There's no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father's life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king. A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.

Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II examines a dark episode in US history when, in the name of national security, the government incarcerated 120,000 citizens and legal residents during World War II without due process or other constitutional protections to which they were entitled. Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, set in motion the forced removal and imprisonment of all people of Japanese ancestry (citizens and non-citizens alike) living on or near the West Coast. This exhibition features works by renowned photographers Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others documenting the eviction of Japanese Americans and permanent Japanese residents from their homes as well as their subsequent lives in incarceration camps. Also included are photographs by incarcerated photographer Toyo Miyatake. This timely exhibition reexamines this history and presents new research telling the stories of the individuals whose lives were upended due to racial bigotry.

Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it's Bushwick's industrial landscape that's attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960?s Greenwich Village, you'll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - Museum of the City of New York Through April 01, 2018 - Manhattan

Forty years ago, dirt-cheap rents and an edgy vibe lured arty types to swarm downtown venues like CBGB's and the Mudd Club. One such place was Club 57 on St. Marks Place, which hosted evenings like the "Monster Movie Club" and "Name That Noise: A Punk Rock Game Show," and attracted artists and performers such as Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, John Sex and Ann Magnuson. The scrappy venue is now the subject of this MoMA retrospective, which looks back to a moment when New York was dirtier and more dangerous—but also more alive with creative possibilities.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. Responding to the broad range of programming at Club 57, the exhibition will present their accomplishments across a range of disciplines—from film, video, performance, and theater to photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, zines, fashion design, and curating. Building on extensive research and oral history, the exhibition features many works that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.

For decades Bobby McFerrin has broken all the rules. The 10-time Grammy winner has blurred the distinction between pop music and fine art, goofing around barefoot in the world's finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory, inspiring a whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. His spirityouall project is an unexpected move from the music-industry rebel who singlehandedly redefined the role of the human voice with his a cappella hit "Don't Worry, Be Happy," his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea and the Vienna Philharmonic, his improvising choir Voicestra, and his legendary solo vocal performances. Spirityouall embraces Bobby's folk, rock, and blues influences without abandoning his fearless improvisational approach or his never-ending exploration of the human voice. He moves seamlessly between lyrics and wordless lines, trading phrases with his band, inviting the audience to sing along. Bobby loves to sing this music, and it shows: spirityouall raises the roof with joyful grooves. It's been the quietest and most polite of revolutions. Bobby McFerrin was always an unlikely pop star. He created a lasting ear-worm of a #1 hit early in his career. Then he calmly went back to pursuing his own iconoclastic musical journey, improvising on national television, singing melodies without words, spontaneously inventing parts for 60,000 choral singers in a stadium in Germany, ignoring boundaries of genre, defying all expectations. Most people don't know that Bobby came from a family of singers. Bobby's father, the Metropolitan Opera baritone Robert McFerrin, Sr., provided the singing voice for Sydney Poitier for the film version of Porgy & Bess, and his mother Sara was a fine soprano soloist and voice teacher. Bobby grew up surrounded by music of all kinds. He remembers conducting Beethoven on the stereo at three, hiding under the piano while his father and mother coached young singers, dancing around the house to Louie Armstrong, Judy Garland, Etta Jones and Fred Astaire. He played the clarinet seriously as a child, but he began his musical career as a pianist, at the age of 14. He led his own jazz groups, studied composition, toured with the show band for the Ice Follies, played for dance classes. Then one day he was walking home and suddenly he understood that he had been a singer all along.

Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice. Station Four: “Jesus Meets His Mother” - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine Through April 01, 2018 - New York

Creating a powerful link between Christianity and Islam, artist Dua Abbas will present her work “Jesus Meets His Mother” at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, part of the “Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice.” exhibition taking place across Manhattan. This public art project explores the journey of Jesus to his crucifixion and resurrection and presents a pilgrimage comprised of 14 “art stations” located across Manhattan. Station Four, “Jesus Meets His Mother,” created by Pakistan-based artist Dua Abbas, will be on view at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan, from February 14 – April 1, 2018. The “Stations of the Cross: Art. Passion. Justice.” exhibition, curated by Dr. Aaron Rosen, Professor of Religious Thought at Rocky Mountain College and Visiting Professor at King’s College London, has traveled across the world raising awareness for those in need of refuge. It was first on view in London in 2016, with art stations at institutions including the National Gallery, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In 2017, the exhibition was shown in Washington, D.C., with stations located at the National Cathedral, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and adjacent to the Supreme Court.

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring sixteen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.

"Distant Observer: Tokyo/New York Correspondence" is a collaboration between Japanese playwright/director Takeshi Kawamura and American playwright/director John Jesurun. The project is conceived as a play written and directed in collaborative partnership by both artists. Written in sequential chapters by each playwright, it combines two noted and formative artists of the same generation, both with distinct voices and significant work, in a deep creative conversation across cultures. Its plot follows a supposed murderer who reinvents himself, and is reinvented by circumstance, in a series of adventures in the Suicide Forest of Japan. La MaMa will present the play's world premiere, directed by Jesurun, March 16 to April 1 in its Ellen Stewart Theatre, 66 East Fourth Street.

Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander's air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family.

Tesnota (Closeness). 2017. Directed By Kantemir Balagov - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 01, 2018 - Manhattan

Tesnota (Closeness). 2017. Russia. Directed by Kantemir Balagov. In Russian; English subtitles. 118 min. New York Premiere A young woman is trapped in a tight-knit Jewish community in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic, located in Russia's North Caucasus, that demands her total dedication but provides her with little protection from the perpetual violence encompassing all aspects of life. Shot mostly in interior spaces, Closeness conjures a world of darkness and claustrophobia as the heroine quietly revolts yet succumbs to her bleak existence. This debut feature by Kantemir Balagov feels more beholden to the social realism of the Dardenne brothers than to the transcendental flair of his mentor, Russian auteur Alexander Sokurov (a producer on this film). Warning: this film contains a scene featuring images of documented violence that viewers may find upsetting.

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's open call commissioning program for emerging artists. Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter's mission, In Practice provides new ways to discover the most innovative artwork, foster experimentation, and give participants the opportunity to develop and present new work. The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman and is curated by Allie Tepper, SculptureCenter's 2018 Curatorial Fellow. An echo suggests an interaction and a return: an emanation which hits a surface and reverberates as instantaneous memory — a powerful tool for envisioning and rewriting history in the present. The word "another" itself suggests recurrence, but with difference. In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed sociopolitical conditions, the artists in this exhibition project voice and language, and make use of responsive and vernacular materials. Rather than glance at the past with nostalgia, these artists share a preoccupation with the present moment: obscuring, adapting, and subverting surrounding signs and physical structures in order to witness, reinvent, and survive the often agitated terrain of contemporary life. Across their work, which encompasses sculpture, live sound, video, and drawing, questions persist about how the self, in the midst of deep inner-processing, can converse with the present. How do we, in an ailing and unaccommodating society, extend ourselves out into the world, particularly when what we need so often is sanctuary? Throughout the exhibition, symbols appear marked on walls, imprinted and pasted as if in the caves of Lascaux, or the walls of prisons where inmates inscribed their opposition to power. Cudelice Brazelton wields a heat gun with the grace of a barber, burning fade designs—an ancient vernacular carried on bodies across history—into the architecture of the building. Nobutaka Aozaki also collects a visual vernacular, in his case the graffiti tags made on USPS label 228 stickers that he has found stuck onto surfaces throughout New York City. Other artists' practices involve reading body language made in response to conditions of imposition. Juliana Cerqueira Leite looks to the media, in particular the gestures of reporters and civilians sharing their experiences of humanitarian crises, focusing on moments when the body attempts to reenact the experience of an event that is beyond their agency, which she echoes through the movements of her body in clay. Carmen Winant amasses instructional images of women engaged in self-defense from a large archive that she began, subconsciously, during the 2016 presidential election campaign. Revisionist encounters with existing monuments concern artists such as Baseera Khan, who addresses a Richard Serra sculpture installed outside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, TX, from under an "acoustic sound blanket." Khan—a queer femme Muslim-American disinherited from Serra's lineage—presents footage of the event in a Karaoke Spiritual Center of Love, set to music chosen according to a protective "logic of armor," by artists such as Rihanna, Bibi Bourelly, and Kevin Abstract. Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall's installation considers the current plight of American immigration, by revisiting the paths that Blacks and early twentieth century Bengali sailors took to the United States, through the holds of slave ships and steamship boiler rooms. "The New Colossus"—the sonnet by Emma Lazarus engraved on the Statue of Liberty base—echoes through the installation: translated into Yoruba and Bengali, and set to traditional music by the artists' collaborators Moses Mabayoje and Monjula Datta. Lachell Workman and Courtney McClellan both cast a quiet, haunting eye on the iterative cycles of injustice that occur though the criminal justice system. Workman's abstract sculptural installation references the vernacular of the street-side memorial and RIP T-shirt, confronting us with a vision of human and environmental neglect, while a nearby slide projector casts a spotlight on the wall, the incessant churn of the slides, counting. Courtney McClellan exhibits a new video that examines the insidious relationship between performance and the law, through her ongoing study of the American Mock Trial Association, and the team at the University of Georgia where she teaches. Witnessing life-forms in moments of transition and growth preoccupies several of the artists in the exhibition. Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau assemble a series of leather totems—"muted bodies" that push against their surroundings with quiet, expressive force, and look to nature's slowest processes, the growth of fungus, and foreground touch and duration as reparative, rather than reactionary modes for weathering a long, slow process of healing. Jules Gimbrone creates work that asserts the presence of the flexible, nuanced body, in particular the sounding of queer subjects that are regularly silenced in the public sphere, through an ecology of transmorphic, responsive materials and audio. Jon Wang presents an immersive, live video and sound environment that meditates on the metamorphic lifecycle of silkworms, inviting viewers into the artist's intimate pursuit of queer architecture, psychosexual resistance, and radical transformation. Carey Denniston presents videos edited from an ongoing FaceTime dialogue with Avery, her thirteen-year-old niece and a digital native living in Eastern Washington. The videos are portraits of "a space of processing" that moves through seemingly banal, but honest, conversations about friendship, to Avery's digestion of current events. The In Practice program offers emerging artists curatorial and financial support to create new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. Artists are selected through a multi-stage process after submitting work through an open call. Past In Practice participants include: Korakrit Arunanondchai, Fia Backström, A. K. Burns, Michael DeLucia, Aleksandra Domanovic, Essex Olivares, Brendan Fernandes, Samara Golden, Ryan Johnson, Joanna Malinowska, Justin Matherly, Virginia Overton, Rachel Rose, Xaviera Simmons.

New York City-based artist Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez' solo exhibition at SculptureCenter features a newly commissioned video work titled The Maid, 2018, as well as additional newly produced video and photographic work. The Maid follows a selection of American artist Sherrie Levine's Newborn sculptures throughout the course of a day in various residences, private and institutional, from New York to Los Angeles. Levine made the works in crystal and black cast glass in the early 1990s, molding them after Constantin Brancusi's marble and bronze sculptures of the same name from 1915 and 1920. By featuring not only Levine's sculptures, already appropriations of another artist's work, but also capturing their contemporary environments, Rodriguez engages the conditions and settings in which art circulates, proposing that the futures of artworks are inherently speculative. Taking its title from a 1913 short story by Robert Walser about a devoted maid searching for a lost child who has been put under her care, the film similarly follows its subject toward a resolution that is more cyclical than gratifying. After searching around the world for the child for over twenty years, the maid in Walser's story finally finds her in Paris—and immediately dies from joy. The enigmatic story becomes a parable that frames the exhibition, as it tackles the complexity of care-based relationships forged through time, and follows Rodriguez' ongoing artistic exploration of subjecthood. Another new work, The Girls, 1997-2018, revisits hours of Hi8 video footage captured in a Chinatown park in the 1990s, when Rodriguez moved to the neighborhood as an artist in her twenties. Catching the eye of several young girls playing outside, Rodriguez trains her lens on them for an extended duration. The Girls crystalizes the proto-digital era the artist was working in and casts the children—now young adults—as unwitting protagonists who mark the passage of time. The video further captures a moment in a neighborhood that has since undergone radical transformation by developers and real- estate markets, as well as a generation that was on the cusp of new technologies that would make the visual documentation of everyday life an integral aspect of living. In addition, Rodriguez has produced a series of silver gelatin prints, All the Best Memories are Hers, 2018, which serve as "portraits" of embryos taken with an EmbryoScope. The resulting images are created from a hybrid of digital and analogue techniques. Whether used for assisted reproduction or stem-cell research, the embryo holds a legally fraught status between "person" and "property"as its regenerative potential is increasingly advanced by biotech industries. Together, the works speak to notions of time: suspended, potential, and actualized. By placing technologically mediated biological time alongside the proposed eternal life of the art object, Rodriguez finds momentary intersections in the disparate qualities and conditions of human and non-human "life," renewing meaning in both. Engaging the discourse of sculpture through the tools of cinema, The Maid follows the lives of 'related' artworks and recounts the conditional relationships between artist, artwork, and third-party agents (institution, caregiver, surrogate) in familial terms. Through this work, Rodriguez investigates how techniques of modern reproduction—both artistic and biological—are organized around property and kinship structures that are mediated through technology and the law. Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid is the artist's first solo museum exhibition in New York City. The exhibition is curated by Ruba Katrib and is accompanied by a color publication with essays by Katrib and Leah Pires. The exhibition will travel to MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge in spring 2018. Carissa Rodriguez (born 1970 in New York City; lives and works in New York City) has exhibited in New York and internationally since the mid-1990s. Recent solo exhibitions include the CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco (2016); Front Desk Apparatus, New York (2013); and Karma International, Zurich (2012). Recent major group exhibitions include MEDUSA, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2017); Finesse, Wallach Art Gallery, New York (2016); the Whitney Biennial, New York (2014); Theater Objects, LUMA Westbau, Zurich (2014); Pro-Choice, Fri Art, Fribourg, Switzerland (2013); ProBio, MoMA PS1, New York (2013); White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, ICA Philadelphia (2013); and Demanding Supplies, Kunstraum Lüneburg (2011). Early in her career, Rodriguez exhibited at American Fine Arts, Co., New York (1999 and 1996), and between 1999 and 2004, her project The Stand in collaboration with Jodi Busby traveled to several institutions internationally. Rodriguez received a BA from Eugene Lang College at the New School, New York in 1994, and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2001. She was a core member of Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York from 2004 to 2015. In 2013 Rodriguez was included in Better Homes at SculptureCenter, New York, curated by Ruba Katrib.

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.

Lyrical Abstraction Through his energetic sculptures, Attila Mata conjures a world of power, agency, and dynamism within geometric structure and variations in media. His oeuvre encompasses a vast array of materials, including but not limited to wood, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and acrylic resin. Inspired by ancient themes such as sexuality, death, and primal deities, Mata's sculptures appear to writhe and change as the viewer circumambulates each work. Each sculpture commands singular authority; for example, in Female Torso (2013), Mata reduces the female form nearly to abstraction while alternating between stainless steel and bronze throughout the piece. Salient angles, clean lines, and geometric forms twist and curl around each other in a nearly austere manner. Mata's women are unapologetic, auspicious, and emanate sovereignty and agency from his audience. While Female Torso's structure appears somewhat fragmented, works such as Love demonstrate an organic fluidity of motion and negative space as turquoise tinted pipettes of bronze twirl and dance around each other with no clear beginning or end. The artist currently resides in Hungary.

Clea von Döhren combines her studious understanding of Modernist forms with visionary thematics discovered only by reflexively turning one's eye inward toward the subjective origins of personal expression. Working in a vein similar to the all-over painting technique pioneered by Abstract Expressionism, von Döhren's works expand upon American-type painting by adding influences derived from German Expressionism. Among other inspirations, she also notes Emil Schumacher, Pierre Soulages, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Jeff Koons. Yet von Döhren's works have a compositional uniqueness all her own, stemming in part from the way in which she mixes warm colors with cooler ones. In the painting titled Altai, abstraction and figuration mingle to make the picture suggest the dimensional outlines of a landscape. Whatever allusions the painting might make to the world outside it, the substance of the image it portrays hinges on a subjectively experienced phenomenon. The viewer's eye can freely take in the painting as he or she likes, as the spatial determinateness of up versus down, or left versus right, is affixed to a dream-like plane of vibrant ambiguities.

Lyrical Abstraction Among his peers, Mao Lizi can be described as one of the first who truly embodied what it means to create abstract paintings as a Chinese artist though, interestingly, he was not always an abstract painter. As one of the founding members of the Stars Group that emerged immediately after the Cultural Revolution, Mao and his cohort were set to change the perspective of the Chinese people. As a country still living the traumatic experiences caused by the politics of that time, the Stars Group championed individuality and freedom of speech. During this time, Mao Lizi was known for his hyper-realistic paintings. With their depictions of a world that had gone beyond a common accepted reality, Mao's paintings presented the minute details of the urban landscape along with fading symbols of a changing era. The work from the 1980s effectively framed an historical narrative of this pivotal moment in time. In the 1990s Mao spent time in France teaching, and beginning in 2000 attempted to develop a career in architecture. After exposure to a wide range of Western traditions, Mao dedicated himself to creating purely abstract forms. Mao further sought to create what he believed to be true Chinese abstraction. As traditional Chinese art rarely deviated from the figurative, this investigation lead Mao to create his most recent series of work, in which he incorporates a sense of natural rhythm uncontrolled by the painter. He notes, "Before splashing, I think carefully about the structure of the painting as a rough idea. But to some extent, the final result is often beyond my control. The randomness is full of uncertainties, but it means it can bring about more possibilities and can develop into infinite paths." Mao Lizi's style has changed dramatically over the years, and his career seems to have gone from one extreme to the other. However, one thing that remains constant is his urge to break his own boundaries, to abandon old paths in order to face new challenges, and for that, Mao Lizi is a Chinese master of abstraction.

Dana Ingesson's unearthly paintings are all the more tantalizing for what they withhold from the viewer. In her most recent series Ingesson is using watercolor, a medium that she is able to make sing with her light hand. She draws it out to barely-there transparency in some places and splashes it heavily down in others, so that the impression it leaves on the paper is still that of an elusive liquid. With only black, white, and a single additional color, Ingesson creates spare compositions that liberally use blank space. Her images glean momentum from a layering shadows, some faint, some dense. The work is all the more haunting for the way it dabbles in the uncanny. Ingesson often uses recognizable objects as the base for her shadowy shapes. A flower blossom, a dragonfly, a man - these are all glimpsed just for a moment beneath the shifting veils. Ingesson was born in the Czech Republic and currently lives in Tidaholm, Sweden. She has exhibited all over the world, including in France, Monaco, India, Germany, Sweden, and Denmark.

To call Iftah Geva's works lighter than air is to highlight both their effect on the viewer and their method of construction. His sculptures seem to float, defying gravity and interacting in a powerful way with their environments. "The sculptures I create are kinetic, not stationary," he says, "and can wander in space." In his works, simple shapes seem to turn in upon themselves, revealing unexpected views and finding new meanings when seen from different vantage points. Their smooth surfaces combine with a feeling of movement to create a world that reflects the artist's vision and demonstrates his skill and scientific knowledge. While Geva employs plywood in some works, the materials that exemplify his method are carbon fibers, used in the aeronautics and space industry, which are both very strong and incredibly light. That mixture lets him make pieces with a strong physicality as well as a spirituality that transcends it. With a sense of precision and purpose learned through his life experiences, the artist gives each of his pieces a distinctive focus and clarity.

Lyrical Abstraction Alexandra Verbeek's vibrantly abstract paintings transform our surrounding natural world into eloquent manifestations of color, depth and texture. Working in predominantly oil on canvas and linen, Verbeek adds layer upon layer of paint onto canvas with multiple intervals of drying. Her laborious technique imparts both a poignant marriage of contrasting tones and a dynamic tactility in textural composition. Inspired by nature and wildlife, Verbeek allows her experiences outdoors to dictate the vast array of emotion that emanates throughout her oeuvre. In works such as Hot Summer, vivid layers of bright yellow paint diagonally transition into a deep crimson hue that is at once combative and compliant. It is as if both colors were performing a reluctant waltz, meeting in the middle in a flurry of textural union. In Winter, lustrous shades of cobalt blue, navy, and terra cotta sweep across thick layers of white and gray. Verbeek's mastery over composition reveals itself through the painting's lack of beginning or end as each layer of pigment moves horizontally in unison. The artist is currently based in the south of France.

Lyrical Abstraction At first glance, Hiroko Saigusa's vibrant paintings are mesmerizing. Working in predominantly acrylic on canvas, HIROKO seamlessly weaves bold lines, geometric planes, and energetic fields of color that comprise her dynamically abstract oeuvre. Her works are at once playful and emotive. In paintings such as Power, curved organic shapes composed of bright red, chartreuse, and navy tones dance and writhe around each other in a nearly dizzying manner. HIROKO's The 60s evokes a similar playfulness, incorporating bright tones of orange, green and yellow contained within shapes that are reminiscent of the Flower Power movement. Passion elicits a mood of cheerful frenzy as contrasting shades of red, blue, orange, and yellow endlessly twirl around each other. Born in Japan, the artist is heavily influenced by activities such as drawing, textiles, fashion design, graphic design, and space design. Throughout much of her oeuvre, HIROKO frequently incorporates the color red. She states: "[Red] represents human blood and I feel that I can expresses the power of life we create. It represents vitality, capability, and emotions of human beings." The artist currently resides in Japan.

Encounters: Nature and Culture Cayman Islands-based artist Ellen Cuylaerts photographs aquatic wildlife around the world, highlighting the distinct connections between man, animal, and environment. Abandoning the tradition of straightforward, documentary photography, Cuylaerts chooses to convey her subjective perception of her animal encounters. The resulting images document the fleeting moment in which photographer and animal establish mutual understanding and two worlds connect. Cuylaerts researches and chooses her subjects based on conservation and environmental concerns in an effort to foster awareness regarding climate change and loss of habitat. In images such as In Between Worlds, the artist captures a lone seal amid a snowy landscape, but a fishing ship looms in the background as a reference to the predatory dangers presented by humans. In her underwater photographs, such as Wild, Cuylaerts captures a misunderstood shark with compassion, the dramatic, filtered light mediated and amplified by her lens to capture the emotional affect of the encounter.

Encounters: Nature and Culture Daniel Loveridge's gritty canvases seamlessly capture the raw and unrepentant beauty of urban decay. Working in predominantly acrylic and ink on canvas, Loveridge paints en plein air, as he has for his sixteen-year long career. Dilapidated interior scenes comprise the majority of the artist's oeuvre. Abandoned buildings rife with decomposing tin and concrete walls are intensified by brilliantly pigmented patches of graffiti throughout his compositions. Earthy tones of terra cotta, brown and gray contrast with nearly luminous, artificial shades of pink, blue and violet that intimate humanity's mark on Loveridge's concrete world. Nonetheless, the impact of nature remains a central component of the artist's works as cracked windows and steel doors placed in the center of his compositions reveal overgrowths of trees, vines, and shrubs. Nature and architecture are at once harmoniously symbiotic and combative within Loveridge's paintings. A graduate of Stony Brook University in New York, Loveridge began his painting career at the age of fifteen. When asked about his work, he explains: "I aim to capture urban decay: how nature overcomes man-made structures and how graffiti artists give life to dying buildings while also contributing to erosion." The artist currently resides in New York.

Encounters: Nature and Culture Color and sensation are nearly limitless in the works of Franck Sastre. Upon first glance, viewers are stunned by the variations in both line and texture that dominate his dynamic compositions. Powerful, female figures of modern society comprise the majority of Sastre's subjects. Utilizing a variety of media, including black ink, pencil, collage, and watercolor on both wood board and canvas, Sastre renders women called 'Azalee', 'Iana', and 'Makeda' with freedom in color and pattern that advocate emotional vivacity over naturalistic expression. Alternations in both thick and thin lines marry with geometric shapes that seamlessly recall the works of Dali, Basquiat, and Kandinsky. Inspired by the art of Sastre's current residence in Spain, primary colors such as red, black and yellow often govern the palette of his compositions. Throughout his oeuvre, Sastre imbues his subjects with pose and gaze that commands agency from the viewer. His figures are at once empowered, fearless, and graceful. The artist explains: "In my paintings, I see the people of my society in their different forms and colors, and I hope that my viewers feel the same admiration for this culture that I do."

Encounters: Nature and Culture Using the plastic, almost sculptural pigments of acrylics, as well as the more old-masterly medium of oils, Elena Gastón Nicolás portrays worlds within worlds, as details come to include within themselves the contextual wholes from whence they derive. Often focusing on spiritual or mystical themes, her paintings of spiritual processes have come to mark a radical departure in her oeuvre. Rather than depend wholly on established symbologies to allude to the representative value of her figures, she simply depicts a particular object in all its ever-ramifying ambiguity. As a result, what we understand by the word "spirit" takes on a more developmental meaning, signaling the vital processes that permeate our planetary existence as a whole. In Camino de Baldosas Amarillas II and Camino de Baldosas Amarillas III the specificity of a natural setting takes on an uncanny universality, mirroring the rhythms and symmetries ordinarily reserved for more abstract paintings. A sort of yellow winding path snakes through the center of the composition, setting off the more verdant greens, browns, and blues that surround it. This contrasting blend of colors traces out a dynamic movement which the ordinarily static qualities of paint on canvas can rarely articulate.

Encounters: Nature and Culture Placing portraiture on a plane equal to the iconic universality of portraiture and fashion photography, the works of NYC-based Zie Otto are at once nakedly direct and difficult to see. His pictures tend to foreground aspects of his subjects, so as to give their whole figure a decided air of ambiguity. Oftentimes, like a movie director, he allows his subjects to hide behind a mask of emotional expressivity: a look concealing the subjectivity of the person who actually gives it. In Americanoh-New Glory White Isaiah Earth the gender of the figure photographed is ambiguously situated behind a scrim of painterly white lines, as though the picture had been captured just moments after paint was spilled by casually raising a hand. What these confetti-like splinters of white suggest, however, is an aura of mock-celebration, as though the subject photographed was unambiguously tethered to a particular gender. On the other hand, these same blotches of paint are merely a scrim, and are not dense enough to conceal the chest of the person photographed, who is androgynously neither male nor female, but someone embodying the characteristics of both.

Lyrical Abstraction Part photography and part sculpture, the remarkable work of American artist Howard Harris is nearly impossible to classify. Harris has said that his aim is to "combine technology and aesthetics in a way that expands the viewer's experience of photographic art." His unique way of image-making begins with a digital photograph. It is abstracted in some way - perhaps the colors are enhanced subtly, or the entire composition is skewed more overtly. Often the photograph is multiplied and layered onto itself, separated by sheets of clear acrylic. The resulting piece has unexpected depth and movement - the eye dances. Harris has truly found a way to make photography surprising again. The images he chooses to bring to life in this singular way vary greatly. His camera captures animals, architecture, landscapes, and portraiture. No matter what the subject matter, each image is depicted centrally, almost monumentally. Backgrounds and even shadows are stripped away. Harris was born in Denver, Colorado and today maintains his own home studio in Denver. He has exhibited extensively all around the United States.

This spring Agora Gallery proudly presents two group shows: Lyrical Abstraction and Encounters: Nature and Culture. Featuring eight artists, Lyrical Abstraction is a renewed inquiry into the spatial questions posed by abstraction. Clea von Döhren and Mao Lizi have an almost mystical intuition of spatial presentation. While von Döhren paints utopian landscapes that veer off into dream, Lizi highlights the spatial structure of the framed canvas, making it’s object-like solidity appear porous by way of large, gestural strokes of paint. Iftah Geva and Attila Mata are both sculptors who physically recreate the spatial dimensions normally relegated to paintings. Howard Harris and Hiroko Saigusa occupy a intermediate realm between realism and and abstraction, alluding to the principles of design while blurring any and all boundaries between decoration and illumination. Finally, Dana Ingesson and Alexandra Verbeek are painters of pure abstraction whose works in watercolors and oils, respectively, create dimensional surfaces and sudden horizons out of the flatness intrinsic to paper or canvas. Encounters: Nature and Culture features six artists whose works highlight the underlying presence of subjectivity in all objective understanding. Elena Gastón Nicolás and MVR both take landscapes as their theme, and yet the brazen colors of the worlds they depict make their pictures hyperreal, suggesting the manner in which the mind reconstructs experience from memory. Daniel Loveridge and Ellen Cuylaerts utilize techniques specific to “photographic realism,” while making sure only to depict structures and beings that reflect back an intense quality of subjectivity. Finally, Franck Sastre and Zie Otto, in their respective media, portray a lyrical awareness: Sastre, in mixed-media works that appear both realistic and dreamlike, and Otto in photographs in that seem to capture the reflexivity of self-awareness within the frame of a portrait, foregrounding the indefinite limit where selfhood ends and the world begins. Lyrical Abstraction and Encounters: Nature and Culture both open March 13th and run through April 3rd, 2018, with an opening reception on Tuesday, March 15th, 2018 6-8 PM. Entrance is free.

Schools closed for Spring Break - Renaissance High School For Musical Theater & Technology Through April 06, 2018 - Bronx

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crown America - The Museum of Arts and Design Through April 08, 2018 - Columbus Circle

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, and two sculptures exploring locations in Harlem and D.C. from William D. Williams’s 2012 Dresser Truck Project.

The fascinating life of one of pop music's greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. When Carole's personal life begins falling apart, she responds by stepping out of the shadows with Tapestry, a deeply personal collection of songs that becomes one of the best-selling albums of all time.

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its energetic and gestural strokes. Torreano has exhibited his works extensively since the late 1960s including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Lesley Heller Gallery will be showcasing pieces from several bodies of work including new paintings influenced in part by the artists' time spent in Abu Dhabi—where he has been professor at NYU's Abu Dhabi campus for the past 7 years—as well as select pieces from his Gem Stones and Columns Series. Also on view will be a small selection of cast bronze gems. This will be the artist's first commercial solo show in New York in six years.

Storytime with Rabbi Mo features storytelling, singing, interactive activities, and nosh. Sign up in advance.

Kathy Acker: Who Wants to Be Human All the Time - Performance Space New York Through April 08, 2018 - New York

In 1974, 26-year-old Kathy Acker met the conceptual artist Alan Sondheim, and suggested a collaboration that would allow them to get to the bottom of their sexual attraction by exchanging “as much information about ourselves as possible.” The result is Blue Tape, an hour-long, highly charged and confrontational truth-and-sex tape. It is remarkable for its braveness, as well as the insight it gives into a young Acker, about to find her voice on sexuality, intimacy, family, and power relations–all themes that consistently recur throughout her oeuvre. For this group exhibition, Blue Tape will be shown next to works by contemporary artists in dialog with Acker.

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, and Apple Computer. The exhibition combines artworks, design objects, and architectural proposals to trace how computers transformed aesthetics and hierarchies, revealing how these thinking machines reshaped art making, working life, and social connections.

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation. Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, and two sculptures exploring locations in Harlem and D.C. from William D. Williams's 2012 Dresser Truck Project.

It presents a broad repertory of choral-orchestral works; seldom-performed works from many stylistic periods; opera-in-concert; American music theatre; and contemporary works, including commissions by the Chorale for its Lincoln Center Season.

The National Chorale is a leader in the development of choral singing in the New York City area. The New York Times calls the National Chorale "one of the most firmly established professional choral groups in the country." For 50 years, the Chorale has also presented vocal music education programs for NYC public schools, developing singing participation and future audiences for choral and vocal music. National Chorale's contracts with the NYC Department of Education provide year-long artist-in-residence programs for elementary, middle and high schools throughout the city. The Chorale regularly tours New York area schools, presenting concerts and choral workshops; and will present the popular 25th annual New York City High School Choral Festival, the 8th annual Elementary School Choral Festival and 5th annual Middle School Choral Festival in April and May 2018, with 36 participating high school, elementary and middle school choirs and more than 2,700 student singers from all five Boroughs of the City.

The panel will review new operatic works for the industry with the goal of bringing new audiences to opera. On working with the National Chorale, Dr. McCorvey said "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of great choral singing with the National Chorale is indeed an honor and a privilege. It is my fervent hope that we can continue to sing, share and experience the goodness of humanity through music and learn of each other better through sharing in the arts."

"Water, like air, is an element we consider to have neither color nor shape. Artists approach the challenges of rendering water in many ways. In this workshop, we will closely examine diverse techniques of many successful artists (such as Homer, Turner, Rembrandt, da Vinci, Hockney, and Hokusai) who have interpreted water in prints, drawings, and paintings. This workshop will include drawing exercises in class and culminate with painting and sketching the Garden's wonderful water features." 4 Thursdays. Please bring this confirmation for Garden admission. The Security Guard in the lobby of the Administration Bldg. at 1000 Washington Avenue will direct you to your classroom.

Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in Japanese - The Met Fifth Avenue Through April 12, 2018 - New York

The Off-Broadway hit The Bench starring Robert Galinsky, directed by Jay O. Sanders, will extend its sold out run at The East Village Playhouse. This production is being presented by Golden Globe Nominated Chris Noth, Drama Desk, Obie, Olivier Award winner Barry Shabaka Henley and produced by Tony Award winning producer Terry Schnuck. Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDs in the 1980s. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery, from Daphne Arthur’s graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world re-known composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. It’s a unique and fresh solo theatre piece wherein one actor plays five characters, written in dialogue form, not traditional ‘monologue black out, monologue black out’ traditional solo theatre form.

The Wedding Singer takes you back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling new score does for the 80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. It's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

Karl Szilagi creates visual puzzles that use black and white geometric patterns to create figurative images. His art explores how we perceive patterns as both flat and three-dimensional at the same time. Most of the pieces are reverse mirror images – they appear the same when rotated 180 degrees.

Welcome to Agrabah, City of Enchantment and the fantastic tale of the street rat who became a prince. All of your favorite characters - Aladdin, Jasmine, Iago, Jafar, the Genie, and more - are here in a musical adventure filled with magic, mayhem, and flying carpet rides.

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculpture by Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin. This will be Cemin's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Oedipus takes on the renowned and influential Greek tragedy in order to interrogate the commanding force that human action can impose over what we perceive to be 'destiny.' Furthering the artist's investigation into the symbolism of ancient mythology, the exhibition presents a new, twenty-part work alongside three sculptures that act as monuments to the power of language and family. The exhibition is on view at the gallery's 293 Tenth Ave location between March 8 - April 14, 2018. The exhibition's title work, Oedipus, functions as its focal point and represents Cemin's first exploration into the form of narrative sculpture; a traditional folk practice popular in his native Northeastern Brazil. Twenty sculptural tableaux are cast in bronze, each presented on an individual plinth and placed in a spiral formation that curves into the center of the gallery. Tiresias, the blind prophet of Apollo, revered for his clairvoyance, takes the role of narrator and sits at the center of the configuration, posed gesticulating as though in the midst of a passionate retelling of the tragedy.

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of "Cut Outs" sculpture editioned by Alex Katz. "Cut Outs" demonstrates the artist's ongoing investigation into the properties of visual perception and the brilliance of surface as represented and rendered in the human figure. Since the 1950s, this dedication to figurative realism—informed by the scale and power of Abstract Expressionism and utilizing the graphic language of advertising that anticipated Pop—has marked Katz as one of the most inventive and technically achieved artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century. The hard exterior lines of the Cut Outs mirror their stern materiality. Realized in stainless or porcelain enamel coated steel, they underscore the artist's dedication to the flat, clean aesthetic for which he is famed. The exhibition brings together four works depicting Katz' wife Ada with one larger, multi-figure work.

Robert Polidori Fra Angelico / Opus Operantis - Paul Kasmin Gallery Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the debut presentation of a selection of Robert Polidori's large-scale color photographs of the frescoes of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) contained in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence. The exhibition will be on view from March 8 through 14 April, 2018. In the canon of art history, these works, executed in the birthplace of the Renaissance, give us a full sense of the period's renewed commitment to the life of the spirit. Polidori visited the Convento di San Marco several times over the course of 2010 to capture the solemnity and sheer force of the frescoes and their reflection, through the depiction of the life of Christ, of the universal condition of mankind. The frescoes, painted by Fra Angelico between 1439 and 1444 for purposes of devotion and contemplation, extend beyond literal storytelling. They shift into the metaphysical realm, bringing the viewer into contact with the incidents of the life of Christ in the context of a newborn psychological and subjective interpretation. In this altered manner of worship lies the root of the changes in faith and understanding that were to follow during the span of the reawakening that we know as the Renaissance.

Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-Tail, Benjamin Bunny, the McGregors and all their friends come to life in this delightful adaption suggested by the characters created by Beatrix Potter. 

A simple policeman looks into his heart and turns himself into a wide-eyed folk hero. A hungry trickster makes a hearty meal of a stone and a song. A poignant tale is told of a solitary man washed up by the sea on the faraway coast of Donegal. This is the stuff of which great drama can be wrought. A one-act play can achieve a kind of greatness. If that one-act play is written by John Millington Synge, Lady Gregory, or William Butler Yeats, surely it has a head start in that direction. With their romantic views of the past, and their wondrous sets of laws and techniques, these three plays, lovingly presented, full of politics, wild humor, unique displays of language, and finally, deep tragedy, come as close as can be to masterworks.

This outdoor exhibit features a luminous white carpet of LED lights across Madison Square Park’s central Oval Lawn. Bring the family at nightfall to see hundreds of transparent white spheres suspended from a square grid of steel poles and cabling, as they gently sway with the wind currents.

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

In commemoration of Earth Month, the Ward Melville Heritage Organization presents Treasure That Trash, a not-to-be-missed exhibit of impressive artistry created from a variety of common items including recycled materials, spray paint, glass and many more. In this popular cutting-edge genre, artists bring originality and imagination to their works and offer a whole new meaning to the phrase, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Artists from across Long Island will participate with their intricate masterpieces cultivated from a desire to preserve the environment while nurturing their passion for art. Artists to date include:

Bergés Alvarez - creates seascapes and landscapes from recycled materials such as plastic bags, aluminum foil and frayed packing materials. 

Janene Gentile - uses recycled glass, spray paint and reclaimed acrylic paints to create her works on canvas.

Ted Thirlby - will display a selection of his “plywood series” paintings using stain and oils on salvaged plywood pieces.

Michael Cole - aka “Copper Mike,” an artist and metal worker who incorporates those skills into his master motorcycle building.

Evolution Pace Gallery is pleased to present its ?rst solo exhibition in Palo Alto dedicated to the work of pioneering artist Michal Rovner.

The New York Studio School presents an exhibition of Diana Cooper's 2D and small 3D works in Gleanings (1997-2018). Cooper is known for pushing the boundaries of drawing by employing an astonishing range of materials – paper, ink, acrylic but also plastics, aluminum tape, pom poms, pipe cleaners, Velcro, felt, Post-Its, and original photographs. Her work has ranged from intimate and playful doodles, to room size installations that conjure up images of machines for obscure purposes. Her unique approach establishes a fascinating tension between free line and technological drafting, the ephemeral and the systematic, the playful and the foreboding.

Conflating narrative tropes and methods from television sitcoms, theater, science fiction, mythology, and anthropology, Mellors writes the scripts for each of his projects, which he also directs, edits, and produces. His raucous films feature a book-eating creature named "The Object" who literally digests a family's library in Ourhouse (2010–ongoing); a Neanderthal in perpetual free-fall over the San Joaquin Valley in Neanderthal Container, (2014); and two messianic beings, in the form of a cardboard box and a giant egg, who attempt to make sense of a culture that they created millions of years prior in The Aalto Natives (2017, in collaboration with Erkka Nissinen, originally conceived for the Finnish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale). For his exhibition at the New Museum, Mellors will create a new environment including video projection and animatronic sculpture. "Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks" is curated by Margot Norton, Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited.

Her new project for the New Museum takes the form of an ongoing action with live performers and one holographic performer. The project approaches the concept of presence in an expanded sense, focusing in particular on its increasing dispersion. In Pirici's ongoing action—conceived especially for the New Museum's South Galleries—presence is revealed in a variety of ways: as physical body as well as artificial stand-in, avatar, and ghost, taking on the character of a memorial or monument; as image and abstraction of the living subject into quantifiable, monetizable data; and as the expanded life of "dead" objects in museum collections—using the presence of live performers to challenge their stable state and static interpretation. This new work continues Pirici's recent interrogations into the collective body through choreographies that link different temporal and spatial events in real time. In the work, performers embody amalgamated parts, intersecting with each other yet separately manipulable. Pirici's project attempts to enact the dispersion of presence and to comment on contemporary processes of abstraction that separate sign from substance and image from material support. Proposing a distributed occupation of space and time, the work functions as one monstrous, modular organism made of living and digital matter. The exhibition is curated by Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Alexandra Pirici was born in 1982 in Bucharest, Romania, where she lives and works. Her work has recently been presented at n.b.k, Berlin (2017); Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017); the Berlin Biennial (2016); Tate Modern, London, and Tate Liverpool (2016); OFF-Biennale Budapest (2015); the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2015); Manifesta 10, St. Petersburg (2014); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2014). In collaboration with artist Manuel Pelmu?, she represented Romania at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013). In 2015, she received the Excellence Award of the National Dance Center, Bucharest.

Life Drawing with Linda Capello. Every Mondays from March 19 - April 16, 2018. Develop your drawing skills in five open studio sessions by drawing male and female models through gesture sketches and longer duration observation, under the guidance of teaching artist Linda Capello. All skill levels welcome. For adults (age 15+). Participants are asked to provide the following dry media supplies: 18x24 newsprint, soft vine charcoal, conte, woodless graphite pencil (#6 or higher), kneaded eraser, and a drawing board. Linda Capello is a master of figure drawing. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked in the NYC fashion industry for over 20 years. She states, "All I have ever wanted to do was draw, and all I have ever wanted to draw were people. I am a classically trained anatomist, but instead of the rigid, mechanical representation of muscle, bone and flesh, I look for the subtlety of the line; the strength and sensuality of the thick, thin and lost line. The curve of the neck and arch of the spine speak volumes." a Capello.

The Ocean After Nature - exhibition - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall - The Auditorium Through April 17, 2018 - New York

The Ocean After Nature considers the ocean as reflecting the ecological, cultural, political, and economic realities of a globalized world. Featuring work by 20 artists and collectives in a variety of media — including photography, video, sculpture, and design — the exhibition explores new ways of representing the seascape as a means to identify and critique land-sea divides, the circulation of people and goods, and the vulnerabilities of ecosystems. In the past 15 years, global technological and economic shifts have triggered new concerns and understandings of the ocean. Invoking personal themes of identity and migration, alongside more universal concerns related to tourism, trade, and the exploitation of natural resources, the internationally established and emerging artists in The Ocean After Nature respond to the intertwined factors that define this new understanding of the ocean. The show proposes that seascapes do not only reflect power but can be instruments of power themselves. Featured artists include Ursula Biemann, CAMP, Yonatan Cohen & Rafi Segal, Mati Diop, Drexciya, Peter Fend, Manuel Gnam, Renée Green, Peter Hutton, Hyung S. Kim, An-My Lê, Manny Montelibano, The Otolith Group, Maria D. Rapicavoli, Carissa Rodriguez, Allan Sekula & Nöel Burch, Supersudaca, and UNITED BROTHERS.

Anita Rogers Gallery presents Four Feet, an exhibition of new work by Swedish/Finnish artist Virva Hinnemo. The exhibition will be on view February 21- April 21, 2018 at 15 Greene Street, Ground Floor in SoHo, New York. There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, February 21, 6-8pm. RSVP Required. Please RSVP to info@anitarogersgallery.com. I'm not saying I am a cave woman but on a subliminal level I get what she painted in her cave. I fill my studio walls with marks: at times awkward and careless looking ones. I submit to an internal drive to move, to be physical and to be alone. I want to leave a trail of light and atmosphere that defies my doubt. Ideas can't do this for me; I need to re-route my energy and tap into something else, somewhere beneath the surface. I'm wide-awake watching my paintings as if they might leap out at me. Virva Hinnemo continues to make eloquent, evocative paintings that link her uniquely physical process to a visual territory all her own. Hinnemo's images are intimate and sublimated translations of things and objects delivered from a reservoir of visual annotations. Her language is spare and unaffected. Only what she genuinely intuits is for us to see. The virtues of paint are abundant but frugal, open-ended yet tough-minded. Hinnemo's attitude is straightforward and not-to-be denied. If Motherwell made enduring images, Hinnemo makes hers persistent and resolute; her lyricism is of another kind. Hinnemo's blunt inscriptions are made exclusively by hand and give the impression of signs or symbols observed directly from life and always on her own terms.

A Tango Dancing Cinderella - Julia De Burgos Latino Cultural Center Through April 21, 2018 - New York

The Art of Mike Mignola: Hellboy and Other Curious Objects - Society of Illustrators Through April 21, 2018 - New York

In this specialized exhibit, Mignola reveals some of his best pieces, providing viewers a look into his dark, spectral perspective. With his easily recognizable style of thin lines, unwieldy shapes, and heavy use of black forms, Mignola has amassed a large following of avid readers of his best-selling graphic novels. In 1982, hoping to find a way to draw monsters for a living, he moved to New York City and began working for Marvel Comics. During the 1990's, after developing his iconic technique, Mignola moved to Dark Horse Comics, where he created his signature Hellboy series, a collection of comic books and graphic novels that chronicles the fate of a half-demon occult detective who may or may not be the Beast of the Apocalypse. In this exhibit, the Society will feature highlights from his fan-favorite Hellboy series, as well as other spin-off titles including work from B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and Witchfinder. The Society is also pleased to feature samples from his award-winning comic books including the Eisner Award winner The Amazing Screw-On Head (Dark Horse Comics) as well as Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire (Bantam Spectra), co-written by best-selling author Christopher Golden. This special exhibit will include an array of comic pages, covers, and rarely seen original paintings by Mignola.

Eric Michelson (the instructor) is a working artist in NYC with over 30 years experience teaching in various schools including the Art Students League, National Academy of Design and the 92nd Street Y. His paintings are in many private collections. The class will focus on the practical skills needed to express the human form. We will concentrate on gesture, line, proportion, anatomy and a clear understanding of light and shadow. The aim is to help the student identify the essential elements of the figure and express it. It is important to understand that these skills are the same whether your drawing is a quick study or a fully modeled one. The drawing classes will consist of short and long poses. A few charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser, and an 18x24 newsprint pad are all that is required but people with experience may use whatever they like in the way of drawing materials and paper

Pace Gallery is pleased to present the first exhibition in the U.S. since 2001 dedicated to the work of pioneering modernist sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Presented in association with the Hepworth Estate, Barbara Hepworth: A Matter of Form brings together more than twenty-five sculptures and selected paintings spanning the artist's career—from the 1930s through the 1970s. The exhibition reveals Hepworth's legacy as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. On view from March 9 through April 21, 2018 at 537 West 24th Street, an opening reception of the exhibition will be held on Thursday, March 8 from 6 – 8 pm. A full-color catalogue accompanies the exhibition and includes a new essay on Hepworth and her impact on contemporary artists, written by Andria Hickey, Senior Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland.

Gagosian is pleased to present “Easyfun-Ethereal,” seven large-scale paintings by Jeff Koons, which were first presented together at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin in 2000. Three of the paintings are on generous loan from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Also on view, will be Woman Reclining (2010–14), a granite sculpture from the Antiquity series. Following the enthusiastic public response to Balloon Flower (Blue), the large mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture installed in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin in 1999, the Deutsche Guggenheim commissioned the first seven of the Easyfun-Ethereal paintings: mural-sized tableaux that combine cut-out photographs of packaged foods, fragments of faces, limbs, and hair, amusement park scenes, and paradisiacal landscapes into images of convulsive beauty.

This beautiful musical by Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell is based on the beloved classic fairy tale. Poor Cinderella, she works all day, has to deal with those awful step-sisters and then sleeps in the cinders. But, don't be too sad because Cinderella is one smart cookie. She'll make it to the Prince's ball and capture his heart.

In addition to the one-hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how it was turned into a musical. Then the kids and their families make their own crowns and magic wands to take home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production. The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.

Bedlam will present Shaw's Pygmalion, directed by Eric Tucker, beginning March 12. The six-week run will open March 27, with a closing date set for April 22. George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion tells the story of Professor Henry Higgins and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle. Higgins makes a bet that he can take Eliza from the gutters of London and pass her off as a society lady, and soon soon discovers that the task involves more than simply teaching her the right dialect in which to speak. Casting and design team will be announced in the coming months.

The 16th year of this popular exhibition is designed by acclaimed Belgian floral artist Daniel Ost and will showcase thousands of dramatically displayed orchids in the Botanical Garden’s historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. One of the world’s leading floral designers, Ost uses flowers as a means of expression. His artistic creations will be tailored to the unique environment of the landmark Victorian-style Conservatory, complementing the architecture of the building while creating a transformative, dazzling spectacle of color, form, and texture.

This large-scale exhibition at the Historical Society will explore the Vietnam War through artwork, artifacts, digital media, interpretive displays and photographs. Visitors can expect to see a troopship berthing unit, a Viet Cong bicycle and the Pentagon Papers—which revealed years of government secrets related to the war—plus film and newsclips to round out the experience.

The New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking exhibition on one of the most controversial events of the 20th century: the Vietnam War. Populating a 3,000-square-foot gallery with interpretive displays, digital media, artwork, artifacts, photographs, and documents, the exhibit provides an enlightening account of the causes, progression, and impact of the war. Spanning the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina from 1945 to 1975, the narrative incorporates perspectives that cover both the home front and the war front. Displays feature such topics as the Cold War, the draft, military campaigns initiated by both sides, the growth of the antiwar movement, the role of the president, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition, explore themes of patriotism, duty, and citizenship through key objects, including a troopship berthing unit, vibrant antiwar posters, artwork by Vietnam vets, a Viet Cong bicycle, the Pentagon Papers, and historical film footage. Long overdue in the realm of public history, the exhibit not only provides a chronological and thematic analysis of the Vietnam War but also inspires a fuller, more diverse conversation about the war. The exhibition is curated by Marci Reaven, vice president of history exhibitions. The exhibition's illustrated companion book may be purchased at the NYHistory Store.

The oldest bridges were logs and stepping stones. Balancing across them allowed a traveler to pass from one side to another. SEED / POND is an exhibit that seeks to bridge the divide between internal and external perception by offering large-scale algorithmic ink drawings to ponder as well as the opportunity to physically navigate through a gallery-wide floor drawing installation. The SEED drawings act as portals to labyrinthian journeys generated from either boundary or core, each mark impacting the location of the next, a spiraling pattern of choices made that influence the choices still to come. The drawings lead the eyes to focus on the center while simultaneously expanding outwards to the circumference of growth. Each drawing is a seed of vibrating light, acting as a nucleus of future expansion, representing the light that is transmitted through generations. POND is an invitation to step consciously along a path composed of stepping stones scattered within drawn undulations of interwoven water. The installation emerges from the tradition of walking labyrinths, meditative paths that can inspire focus while the walker navigates through all that is flowing around them, all their relations, all their thoughts. Unlike single path labyrinths, the stepping stones of POND form a maze with multiple routes, where every step seeds the next, where the outward physical act of finding balance can inform one's inward centering.

The Floating World by Emma Sulkowicz - The Invisible Dog Art Center Through April 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ukiyo, or "the floating world," describes the hedonistic culture of kabuki theater, geisha, bath houses, and pleasure quarters in Japan's Edo period. It is homophonous with the Buddhist term for "this world of sorrow and grief." The Floating World is an exploration of the meaning of support. When people experience pain or trauma, their loved ones "hold them together" and "lift them up." The installation consists of a series of glass orbs, suspended and connected in a hybrid style of shibari and ukidama, or Japanese fishing floats. Each orb holds a floating artifact of the artist's relationship with a member of their community. With original musical composition by Sean Harold. Emma Sulkowicz (b. 1992) is an American artist of Japanese-Chinese-Jewish descent who lives and makes art in their hometown, New York City. They earned a BFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2015 and studied studio art in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. They are perhaps best known for their senior thesis at Columbia University — "Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight)" — an endurance performance artwork in which they carried a dorm mattress everywhere on Columbia's campus for as long as they attended the same school as their attacker. Their awards include the National Organization for Women's Woman of Courage Award (2016) and Susan B. Anthony Award (2014), the United States Student Association's National Student Movement Builder of the Year Award (2015), and the Feminist Majority Foundation and Ms. Magazine's Ms. Wonder Award (2015).

"'Car Parts' is a series I started photographing in the fall of 2012. Attracted to the light and abstract pattern in a reflection on a parked car door, I began noticing these 'paintings' on cars everywhere and I set out to collect them. For me these dream-like images combine elements of gestural energy from Abstract Expressionism with the bright colors of Pop Art in a tribute to the glamour that American society has long associated with the automobile. They are akin to what John Chamberlain was doing with his metal sculptures of crushed cars. Coincidently, Chamberlain lived and worked for twenty years in my hometown of Sarasota, Florida, and I think we both responded similarly to the intense Florida sunshine and salt-air rusted metal.

Danziger Gallery is pleased to announce our representation of the photographic estate of Antonio Lopez. The foremost fashion illustrator of the 1970s and 80s, Antonio (as he signed his work) was and remains one of the most highly regarded and influential figures in the fashion world. While not initially known as a photographer, Antonio was rarely without his favorite Instamatic camera, and as his career progressed he turned increasingly to photography to create fashion stories, portraits, and elaborate mise-en-scènes. This exhibition – the first to focus exclusively on Antonio's photographs - features a selection of the unique Instamatic prints from the 1970s that were his photographic form. Developed and printed by Kodak, these prints were either mounted by Antonio or stored in the original yellow Kodak envelopes that the film was processed and delivered in. As Antonio never sent the negatives back for re-printing each print is unique. While primarily known for his fashion illustrations, Antonio did not treat his photographs lightly, assembling them in grids and pairs to create dynamic and visceral patterns. While the prints may superficially resemble Andy Warhol's Polaroids because of their size and period, Antonio's Kodak prints are a burst of energy to Warhol's more classical studies. While Warhol's Polaroids were mostly the basis for future painted portraits, Antonio's photographs were an end to themselves. A serial Svengali, as the writer Karin Nelson noted: "Lopez brilliantly transformed the women in his world. Under his tutelage, Jerry Hall, a long tall Texan he met at Paris's Club Sept, evolved into a golden goddess. He put Jessica Lange in gold lamé evening dresses after discovering her in Paris studying mime, and gave aspiring model Tina Lutz her start (and an introduction to future husband Michael Chow); and, by spotlighting Pat Cleveland, a mixed-race model with a theatrical streak, he helped break down the color barrier in high fashion." Other favorite subjects were the young Grace Coddington, Grace Jones, and Paloma Picasso. Antonio Lopez was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico in 1943. His family moved to Spanish Harlem in 1950 where he showed early promise as an artist making drawings for his mother who was a seamstress and dressmaker. In the early 1960s he enrolled on a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York where he met Juan Ramos who became his life long collaborator. He joined The New York Times in 1963 but was soon freelancing for Harper's Bazaar, British Vogue and French Elle. In 1969 he moved to Paris with Ramos where he was commissioned by all the leading fashion magazines. He returned to New York in 1975 creating numerous covers and picture stories for Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine. Antonio died in Los Angeles 1987. He was forty four years old. A documentary "Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion, and Disco" is slated for release in the fall of 2018. Written, produced and directed by James Crump, the film covers his colorful and often outrageous milieu and features Jessica Lange, Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, Grace Coddington, Bob Colacello, Patti D'Arbanville, Karl Lagerfeld, Juan Ramos, Bill Cunningham, Yves Saint Laurent, Donna Jordan, Michael Chow, and Paul Caranicas, among others.

Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA's new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration. Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. This tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland. The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY. Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri 10-4 pm; Sat and Sun 1-4 pm. For more information visit www.rocklandartcenter.org or call 845-358-0877. RoCA’s programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the main event—the afterlife.

A New Musical Based on the Academy Award-Winning Film Chicago. 1936. Get ready to enter a smoke-filled world of cons and capers, where nothing is what it seems and no one is who they appear to be.

The Tony Award-winning creative team includes director John Rando (On the Town), choreographer Warren Carlyle (Hello, Dolly!), bookwriter Bob Martin (The Drowsey Chaperone), and an original score by composer/lyricist team Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis (Urinetown). The Sting takes you back to an era when the blues reigns, the stakes are high, and the dice are always loaded.

Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker - 9/11 Memorial Museum Through May 01, 2018 - New York

“Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine spanning more than four decades of the evolving New York City skyline. The exhibition takes visitors through the magazine’s depictions of the city’s experience as the Twin Towers were constructed and stood as icons of the city, their sudden absence when they were destroyed, the widely felt grief and anxieties in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, their commemoration in the years that followed, and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site now home to The New Yorker and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. The exhibition will run through May 2018 in the museum’s South Tower Gallery.

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom brings together over a dozen contemporary artists working across a range of media to interpret an extraordinary—and now lost—historical artifact: a so-called "Book of Paintings" created by José Antonio Aponte, a nineteenth-century Afro-Cuban revolutionary. Authorities found the "Book of Paintings" in 1812 during the investigation into a major antislavery conspiracy. During his trial, Aponte was forced to describe every picture in his book. They portrayed lush landscapes and Biblical stories; Roman goddesses and Spanish kings; black men as warriors, emperors, and librarians; Rome and Ethiopia; Havana and the heavens. Shortly after testifying, Aponte was publicly executed, and his "Book of Paintings" disappeared. Using Aponte's trial testimony—which is all that is known to remain of the "Book of Paintings"—the artists of Visionary Aponte have reimagined Aponte's book for our present. They invite us to think about the role of art in making social change and in mitigating the violence of colonialism and its archive. The artists include: José Bedia (Miami), Leonardo Benzant (New York), Juan Roberto Diago (Havana), Édouard Duval-Carrié (Miami), Alexis Esquivel (Havana), Teresita Fernández (New York), Nina Angela Mercer (New York), Clara Morera (North Carolina), Glexis Novoa (Miami), Marielle Plaisir (Miami), Asser Saint-Val (Miami), Jean-Marcel Saint-Jacques (New Orleans), Renée Stout (Washington, D.C.). The exhibition also incorporates—and the art engages—scholarly research on Aponte and his world by NYU Professor Ada Ferrer, author of the prize-winning book Freedom's Mirror: Cuba and Haiti in the Age of Revolution, and art historian Linda Rodríguez, curator of the digital humanities website Digital Aponte. The show, which originally opened in Miami's Little Haiti Cultural Center during Art Basel 2017, will be on view starting February 23, 2018 at New York University's King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center.

LeWitt, Nevelson, Pendleton Following the recent announcement to open a major gallery in Geneva, Pace is honoured to present its inaugural exhibition LeWitt, Nevelson, Pendleton at Quai des Bergues 15-17, from 21 March to 4 May 2018. The exhibition will explore the conceptual affinities between the multidisciplinary luminaries, working across different decades and media. LeWitt, Nevelson, Pendleton establishes parallels between intergenerational artists revealing three different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions on colour, shape, materials and meaning. Prompting a trialogue between artists, the presentation will explore themes of language, abstraction, geometry and appropriation.

For The Life-Cycle of Interfaces exhibition, the artists will exhibit a suite of four works: Documentation about selected works: Since 2012, Exonemo has been organizing Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet black market), a “backstreet of the internet.” Artists and creators are invited to occupy a flea-market styled exhibition space, and sell items that are interesting and unique to the internet. Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another. DesktopBAM (2010) is a performance piece entailing programmatically controlling a mouse cursor to DJ on a desktop environment. It’s a homage to turntablism, born from using turntables in unconventional ways. The title BAM pays tribute to Afrika Bambaataa, a musician hailing from south Bronx, New York, one of the originators of breakbeat DJing and hip hop culture. The dynamism of this performance is created by the mouse cursor, controlled by computer algorithm, to move faster and more accurately than any human DJ can possibly comprehend. The computational movements trigger the audience’s physicality, while at the same time evoke the “physicality of computers” controlled by humans in return. DanmatsuMouse (2007) humors with the idea of an electronic interface as an object of spirituality. The video records the process of destroying a physical mouse, while simultaneously capturing the motion of the trembling cursor desperately crawling across the digital screen, beckoning for a last bitwise appearance. The expressive movement of the cursor invites us to reconsider our relationship with a tool, an electronic device, or a technological object. Do tools exist for the purpose of helping its owner? Or do they leave behind traces of their own being? Could a tool serve as an interface crossing the immediate to the grandeur - an alternative space that’s ever expanding but never approaching? Fireplace (2014) is a video piece presenting scenes of burning optical mice and keyboards as tinder fed into a fireplace. In the old days of “hearth and home,” the fireplace was the center of the living room and family gathering. With the evolution of technology, fireplace was replaced by TV. In some countries, there are TV channels one can tune in to conveniently display video broadcasts of fireplaces. Entering into the era of hand-held devices, where everyone carries “smart” personal technology with them, PCs are joining the same fate as the fireplace, and other technological objects that are no longer desired. So, how about feeding retired PCs to fireplaces? To burn away yet another legacy as we shift to a new world of decentralized personal displays?

British photographer Edmund Clark has spent ten years exploring structures of power and control in the so-called global War on Terror. Edmund Clark: The Day the Music Died presents photographic, video, and installation work focusing on the measures deemed necessary to protect citizens from the threat of international terrorism. It also explores the far-reaching effects of such methods of control on issues of security, secrecy, legality, and ethics. From Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan to extraordinary rendition and the CIA's secret prison program, Clark's work finds new ways to visualize the processes, sites, and experiences associated with the United States' response to international terrorism. His engagement with military and state censorship defines the secrecy and denial around these subjects. Through photographs and declassified documents, Clark reveals how the unexpected connections between those who exercise control and those who are subject to it bring this covert torture trail to a human level. He highlights the everyday veneers under which purveyors of detention and interrogation operate in plain sight, brings light to the processes beneath, and reflects on how terror impacts us all by altering fundamental aspects of our society and culture. Organized by Director of Exhibitions and Collections Erin Barnett, this is Clark's first major solo exhibition in the United States.

This exhibition presents new work from the Dharmapala Thangka Center in Nepal. It celebrates the significant and specific roles of female icons in the liberation and enlightenment of sentient beings. In Tibetan Buddhism, a female Buddha is considered to be the mother of all Buddhas and sentient beings. In Tantrism, female buddhas are important aspects of the enlightenment practice known as Atti yoga (maha yoga). In Tibetan art, these female icons and figures are depicted as buddhas, bodhisattvas, historical figures such as lineage founders, and also yidams and dharma protectors in peaceful, semi-wrathful or wrathful forms. This is the second showing of works from the Dharmapala Center at the Tibet House US Gallery. Master artist Karsang Lama from the Dharmapala Center is a national treasure in Nepal and a world renowned painter of traditional tangkas. His work appears in monasteries and museums in Asia, Europe and the United States. The Dharmapala Thangka Center promotes the Himalayan Buddhist art and tradition, and is affiliated with a monastic tradition of the northern Buddhist artisans of Tibet and Nepal. The Center has trained hundreds of Tangka artists over three decades.

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a bohemian life of poverty, taking paying jobs only when necessary and focusing on the subjects that compelled him. In his book Portraits in Life and Death (1976) Hujar combined intimate portraits of his downtown coterie (painters, performers, choreographers, and writers) with studies of mummies in the Palermo Catacombs. Briefly a lover and then a mentor to the young artist David Wojnarowicz, in his final seven years Hujar continued chronicling a creative Downtown subculture running out of time in a fast-changing city.

New on View "Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine. From the time the original World Trade Center first rose into the skyline, it began appearing on covers of The New Yorker. For years, artists treated the Twin Towers playfully. After 9/11, somber imagery emerged. While the destruction of the towers was not depicted, the anxiety and sadness engulfing the nation took form on New Yorker covers after the attacks. Over the years, the covers commemorated the loss of the towers while documenting the revitalization of the site. The exhibition runs through May 2018.

Shore precociously began his career as a teenager, shooting black-and-white images of Andy Warhol's Factory during the 1960s. He then went on to become one of the pioneers of color film as a fine art medium. MoMA covers his career, from his high school days to his recent forays into digital photography.

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist's work of the last five decades, during which he has conducted a continual, restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms. One of the most significant photographers of our time, Stephen Shore (American, b. 1947) has often been considered alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography, digital printing, and social media. The artist's first survey in New York to include his entire career, this exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore's work, and demonstrate his singular vision—defined by an interest in daily life, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches, a strong intellectual underpinning, a restrained style, sly humor, and visual casualness—and uncompromising pursuit of photography's possibilities.

Towards Catastrophe: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s - Neue Galerie Through May 28, 2018 - New York

On February 22, 2018, Neue Galerie New York will present "Towards Catastrophe: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s," an exhibition devoted to the development of the arts in Germany and Austria during a decade marked by economic crisis, political disintegration, and social chaos. The Neue Galerie is the sole venue for the exhibition, which will be on view through May 28, 2018. The exhibition is organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, University Professor at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, and serves as the third show in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Peters that focus on German history. The first of these three shows, "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany 1937" organized in 2014, examined the infamous traveling exhibition "Entartete Kunst" mounted by the National Socialist regime. The exhibition was an enormously popular and critical success. The second show, "Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" on view in 2015, explored the critical role played by the city of Berlin in the growth of modern culture.

Before the Fall: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s - Neue Galerie New York Through May 28, 2018 - New York

On March 8, 2018, Neue Galerie New York will present "Before the Fall: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s," an exhibition devoted to the development of the arts in Germany and Austria during a decade marked by economic crisis, political disintegration, and social chaos. The Neue Galerie is the sole venue for the show, which will be on view through May 28, 2018.? The exhibition is organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, University Professor at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, and serves as the third show in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Peters that focus on German history. The first of these three shows, "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany 1937," organized in 2014, examined the infamous traveling exhibition "Entartete Kunst" mounted by the National Socialist regime. The exhibition was an enormous popular and critical success. The second show, "Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" on view in 2015, explored the critical role played by the city of Berlin in the growth of modern culture. Pandiscio Green is the designer of the exhibition and catalogue for "Before the Fall," and was also responsible for the inventive installations for the previous two shows in the trilogy. This exhibition, comprised of nearly 150 paintings and works on paper, will trace the many routes traveled by German and Austrian artists and will demonstrate the artistic developments that foreshadowed, reflected, and accompanied the beginning of World War II. Central topics of the exhibition will be the reaction of the artists towards their historical circumstances, the development of style with regard to the appropriation of various artistic idioms, the personal fate of artists, and major political events that shaped the era.

Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through June 03, 2018 - New York

Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1886–1973) is a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. The first exhibition in the United States exclusively devoted to the artist focuses on her pivotal production from the 1920s, from her earliest Parisian works, to the emblematic modernist paintings produced in Brazil, ending with her large-scale, socially driven works of the early 1930s. The exhibition features over 130 artworks, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and other historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Born in São Paulo at the turn of the 19th century, Tarsila?as she is affectionately known in Brazil?studied piano, sculpture, and drawing before leaving for Paris in 1920 to attend the Académie Julian. Throughout subsequent sojourns in Paris, she studied with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes, and Fernand Léger, fulfilling what she called her "military service in Cubism," ultimately arriving at her signature painterly style of synthetic lines and sensuous volumes depicting landscapes and vernacular scenes in a rich color palette. The exhibition follows her journeys between France and Brazil, through Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, charting her involvement with an increasingly international artistic community, and her critical role in the emergence of modernism in Brazil: in 1928, Tarsila painted Abaporu, which quickly spawned the Anthropophagous Manifesto, and became the banner for this transformative artistic movement that sought to digest external influences and produce an art for and of Brazil itself.

Ballet des Amériques' 2018 Summer Intensive Program Auditions - Ballet des Amériques Through June 09, 2018 - Port Chester

Summer intensives have a long tradition in the world of dance - bridging the gap between the spring and fall semesters - but also fulfilling a complementary role with respect to the regular school curriculum: Largely free from academic obligations, students are able to concentrate on dance and make leaps of progress in training, iron out weaknesses, and consolidate what was achieved during the academic year. The warmth of the summer months also makes for greatly increased flexibility, which, when intensely exercised, can propel students to a higher level.

The 2018 Summer Intensive is a 4-week program with classes and workshops in: ballet, pre-pointe, pointe, répertoire, partnering, modern dance, modern jazz, barre au sol, music and voice, ballet terminology (French), dance history, acting, arts and crafts, folkloric dance, and stage makeup.

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

Sing-along with Mike Messer of the Dirty Sock Fun Time Band - Dean Street Through June 30, 2018 - Prospect Heights

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

Incorporating six hour-long durational pieces, videos, improvisational theater, live music, and solo performances, the festival brings together work that intersects music, art, and nightlife. Emceed by BUSHWIG, the festival includes performances by Bunny Michael, Macy Rodman, and Jennifer Vanilla; DJ sets by Sweat Equity and DJ Dog Dick; back-to-back concerts by Somos Monstros and Bottoms; and projects from longtime Secret Project Robot collaborators Raul de Nieves and Jake Dibeler. Interspersed between acts, FLUCT premieres a new video work, and Monica Mirabile and Kathleen Dycaico present a series of performative vignettes. Throughout the building, visitors will encounter pop-up music, performance, and interventions, such as a new play led by Cameron Stuart, a recital from Frank Hurricane, and music by Robot Death. The program concludes with a rare concert from seminal Brooklyn band Black Dice, who have not performed in New York City since 2012. Secret Project Robot has been a longstanding part of New York’s cultural landscape, holding interdisciplinary events in multiple locations for almost 20 years. This festival marks the culmination of VW Sunday Sessions’ season-long exploration of alternative platforms for creative practice. Free with museum admission

Adrian Piper: A Synthesis Of Intuitions, 1965–2016 - The Museum of Modern Art Through July 22, 2018 - Manhattan

In 1996 Adrian Piper wrote, "It seemed that the more clearly and abstractly I learned to think, the more clearly I was able to hear my gut telling me what I needed to do, and the more pressing it became to do it." Since the 1960s, this uncompromising artist and philosopher has explored the potential of Conceptual art—work in which the concepts behind the art takes precedence over the physical object—to challenge our assumptions about the social structures that shape the world around us. Often drawing from her personal and professional experiences, Piper's influential work has directly addressed gender, race, xenophobia, and, more recently, social engagement and self-transcendence.

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.

Beyond Suffrage: A Century Of Women In New York Politics - Museum of the City of New York Through August 05, 2018 - Manhattan

In honor of the women's suffrage centennial in New York State, the Museum of the City of New York explores women's political activism from the fight for voting rights up to the present day. Among the themes explored through artifacts, documents, costumes, photos and audiovisual materials are labor, health reform, good government and the women's liberation movement.

A playful and poignant homage to classic silent-film era comedians, Chalk invites audiences into a hand-drawn world where imagination is made real and anything can happen.

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 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. 

Romare Bearden: Storyteller - Emily Lowe Gallery, behind Emily Lowe Hall, South Campus Through August 17, 2018 - Hempstead

The narrative themes of Romare Bearden’s work spanned historical, political, and religious topics. Through his innovative works of art, Bearden communicated his ideas and thoughts about everyday African-American life in 20th century America. The exhibition includes prints in a variety of methods (aquatint, engraving, etching, lithograph, and silkscreen) from the Hofstra University Museum Collections.

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.

Reanimation Library, an ongoing project by Andrew Beccone, is a collection of 2000+ obscure or out-of-print publications the artist has been collecting over 15 years. Chosen primarily for the images that they contain, this collection of books have been culled from thrift stores, rummage sales, flea markets, municipal dumps, library sales, give-away piles, and used bookstores across the country. Housed at Pioneer Books, Reanimation Library will operate as a public non-circulating collection of books for visitors through August 2018. The library space will include tools to use the collection including a computer, scanner, and copier and host a series of related public events. Join us on Thursday, September 14 at Pioneer Works for the opening reception at Pioneer Works. Learn more. Andrew Beccone, founder of the Reanimation Library, is an artist, librarian, and musician. The library has been exhibited widely at venues around the world including Vox Populi (Philadelphia), SPACE (London), High Desert Test Sites (Joshua Tree), talcual (Mexico City), 98weeks (Beirut), the Museum of Modern Art, the Queens Museum, and Kunsthalle Osnabrück. He was a resident at EFA's SHIFT (2014/15) and the Queens Museum Studio Program (2015-2017). He lives and works in Brooklyn.

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.

Access+Ability - Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum Through September 03, 2018 - Upper East Side

AMNH to Open Amazon Adventure in 3D Digital March 9 - American Museum of Natural History Through September 13, 2018 - New York

Amazon Adventure traces the extraordinary journey of 19th-century naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates—the most influential scientist you’ve never heard of—who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance, and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into his fascinating study of animal mimicry, the phenomenon in which one animal adopts the look of another. Filmed on location, Amazon Adventure plunges audiences into a wild world of breathtaking beauty and captivating animals, including an array of nature’s masters of mimicry. Painstakingly researched for three years, the film enlisted the expertise of more than 100 scientists and historical advisers. The team’s commitment to authenticity not only resulted in this rigorous re-creation, even using actual instruments and tools from the 1850s, but the writing team also incorporated many of Bates’ own words, as he was a gifted storyteller. Produced by SK Films (Flight of the Butterflies 3D), the film is directed by Mike Slee and is executive produced by Jonathan Barker and Sean B. Carroll, starring Calum Finlay as Henry Bates, written by Wendy MacKeigan and Carl Knutson and shot by cinematographers Gerry Vasbenter and Richard Kirby, with an original score by Brazilian composer Antonio Pinto. The makers of the film, a co-production between Canada, the U.K., and Brazil, were granted unprecedented access by the Natural History Museum of London to film Bates’ own scientific field notebooks and botanical drawings, and to film the butterflies he personally collected over 160 years ago—butterflies that had never left the museum. Screening through September 13, 2018, Amazon Adventure will be shown daily in the Museum’s Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Theater, in 2D at 11:30 am and 4:30 pm, and in 3D at 10:30 am and 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 pm. Times are subject to change. To purchase tickets in advance, the public should call 212-769-5200 or visit amnh.org. A service charge may apply. Developed in close collaboration with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, Amazon Adventure also received major funding from the National Science Foundation through the film’s educational outreach partner, Pacific Science Center. Other key partners include the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Simons Foundation, and Foxconn Brazil and Vale. Photo Credit: SK Films

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

A permanent exhibition devoted to Jim Henson. This dynamic visitor experience—housed in a new gallery space funded by the City of New York—explores Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on popular culture. The Jim Henson Exhibition features a broad range of artifacts from throughout Jim Henson's remarkable television and film career. It reveals how Henson and his team of builders, performers, and writers brought to life the enduringly popular worlds of The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth. It also includes material from Henson’s lesser known and experimental film projects, presenting Henson as a restlessly creative performer, filmmaker, and technical innovator. Among the nearly 300 objects on view in The Jim Henson Exhibition are 47 puppets—including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, The Swedish Chef, Statler, Waldorf, Big Bird, Elmo, Cantus Fraggle, a Skeksis, and other popular favorites—character sketches, storyboards, scripts, photographs, and iconic costumes. Film and television clips and behind-the-scenes footage are presented on more than 27 monitors and projections throughout. Interactive experiences allow visitors to try their hand at puppeteering on screen and designing a puppet character. Many of the artifacts in the exhibition are drawn from the 2013 donation by Jim Henson’s family to the Museum’s collection, which includes nearly 500 objects related to Henson’s unparalleled career and features historic puppets, costumes, production design material, and licensed merchandise. The exhibition also includes sketches, storyboards, scripts, and other material on loan from The Jim Henson Company Archives. Archival video and photographic material was provided by The Jim Henson Company, Sesame Workshop, and The Muppets Studio.

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.

This one-time free class is a chance for your child to try their hand at fencing. Registration required.

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.

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.

THEATER Adapted by Naomi Iizuka Directed and devised by Rachel Dickstein and Ripe Time Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival "This is my 17th straight day without sleep." A Japanese housewife's mundane existence of chores and grocery shopping explodes when a haunting dream leads her to cast sleep aside, releasing her into a world of danger and the thrill of the unknown. Based on the 1994 short story by the beloved Japanese author Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle), this hypnotic physical theater piece by Brooklyn-based, Obie Award-winning company Ripe Time follows one woman beyond the bounds of society. Led by a powerhouse female creative team—including director Rachel Dickstein and playwright Naomi Iizuka—and featuring an original score performed live by NewBorn Trio, this playful and eerie journey takes audiences through a wakeful realm where bodies float, ghosts lurk, and daylight rules no longer apply.

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.

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.
