Cocote. 2017. Directed By Nelson Carlo De Los Santos Arias - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 04, 2018 - Manhattan

Cocote. 2017. Dominican Republic/Brazil/Argentina. Directed by Nelson Carlo de los Santos Arias. In Spanish; English subtitles. 107 min. New York Premiere This format-mixing, formally eclectic opus is at once a profound film about religion and a unique tale of revenge. Upon learning that his father has been murdered by a powerful local figure, Dominican private gardener Alberto travels from Santo Domingo back to his hometown to participate in his funeral rites—a mixture of Catholicism and West African mysticism that flies in the face of Alberto's own evangelicalism. But Alberto's family has vengeance in mind, and he finds himself at a spiritual and existential crossroads. Boldly synthesizing ethnographic documentary and scripted drama, Cocote is a visually resplendent and stylistically audacious work that evokes the films of Glauber Rocha and the fiction of Roberto Bolaño. A Grasshopper Film release.

The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. "I'm a touring artist. I'm an artist that's internationally known. I'm not just a local artist at this point in my career. I'm cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I'm trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I've done before." After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world's most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental.

The Great Buddha +. 2017. Directed By Huang Hsin-yao - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 04, 2018 - Manhattan

The Great Buddha +. 2017. Taiwan. Directed by Huang Hsin-yao. In Taiwanese, Mandarin; English subtitles. 104 min. New York Premiere Provincial friends Pickle and Belly Button idle away their nights in the security booth of a Buddha statue factory, where Pickle works as a guard. One evening, when the TV is on the fritz, they put on video from the boss's dashcam—only to discover illicit trysts and a mysterious act of violence. Expanded from a short, Huang Hsin-yao's fiction feature debut The Great Buddha + (the plus sign cheekily nodding to the smartphone model) is a stylish, rip-roaring satire on class and corruption in contemporary Taiwanese society.

Like Parry, Irene's father was falsely accused of a crime he did not commit.

Djon África. 2018. Directed by João Miller Guerra and Filipa Reis - The Museum of Modern Art April 04, 2018 - Manhattan

Djon África. 2018. Portugal/Brazil/Cape Verde. Directed by João Miller Guerra and Filipa Reis. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 95 min. U.S. Premiere Documentarians João Miller Guerra and Filipa Reis turn the subject of their previous film into the central character of their debut fiction work. A Cape Verdean in Portugal, Miguel Moreira, also known as Djon África, travels back home to look for his birth father. This hopefully soul-searching journey quickly gets derailed as he comes across beautiful women, colorful parties, and the local liquor known as grogue. Written by Pedro Pinho, director of The Nothing Factory, also playing in this festival, this woozily intoxicating road movie is as youthful, charming, and adventurous as its title character.

It takes a lot of time to accept who you are," says Chris Daughtry. "You shave off the persona that you thought people expected, stop worrying about what anyone is going to think. You start to be comfortable with who you are onstage and off, and that all blends together. I think I finally know who I am as a person." As the frontman for the band bearing his name, Daughtry has become one of the most visible and consistent rock & roll torchbearers of the 21st Century. Since rising to prominence on the fifth season of American Idol, he has released four albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S. Daughtry's self-titled debut was the best-selling album of 2007, which contained four Top Twenty hit singles including the Grammy-nominated smash "It's Not Over." Leave This Town also reached Number One in 2009, while 2011's Break the Spell was certified gold. His group's most recent record, 2013's Baptized, featured the platinum-selling "Waiting for Superman," which the singer points to as a turning point in his songwriting. "It was a nice hybrid of where we had been and where we're going, and it opened my eyes a bit," says Daughtry. "Everything was so serious and doom and gloom, and 'You broke my heart,' but we never saw ourselves as those people outside the music—onstage we were always joking around. That helped me wrap my head around the fact that we can be light-hearted and still be us. And that really changed the way I approach the songs in general." Daughtry and his band have been performing together for over a decade. "Like anything with a ten year relationship, you know more about each other than you do most of your family," says Chris Daughtry. "It's a love-hate thing—you get sick of being around them, but after two weeks at home you're ready to get back out on the road and do it again. The fan base really keeps us alive. That's the key ingredient to keeping a band together—that's the gasoline, and without it you can't run." One thing that has kept the fire burning for Daughtry has been the need to constantly challenge himself creatively. He has collaborated with artists from Timbaland to Vince Gill to Carlos Santana and took on the role of Judas Iscariot in the 2016 live television performance of The Passion, and even fulfilled a lifelong dream by drawing the cover of a Batman comic which was rated one of the top 25 covers of the year by BatmanNews.com. This kind of ambition has also extended to the work of Daughtry the band. "We always try to push ourselves outside of the familiar parameters," says the singer. "If it's anything like we've done before, then it's not good enough for the record. "If you look at the groups doing it for twenty-plus years," he continues, "they were always changing their style, testing the water, going off the rails from what people expected—Zeppelin, Elton, Prince, they never did the same record twice. So there's always that effort to push yourself as an artist, but I never want to abandon that sense of melody and sense of something that people can grab onto, whether it conjures up memories or helps them through a tough time. That's what I love about music, when it makes me feel something." As the band continues work on its fifth album (which Daughtry describes in its early stages as having a "bluesy, almost rootsy undertone to it"), they look to contemporaries like Maroon 5 and Train as examples of acts able to maintain their relevance while rock & roll faces an uphill struggle in the mass media. "Those guys are inspirational, showing that you can come back and have a strong presence, even if what you're known for doing is having a hard time," he says. Ten years after launching with a massive splash, Chris Daughtry claims that he and the band have grown the most on stage, and that it's altered his whole sense of his work. "When we first came out, I'd only known what I'd seen," he says. "I didn't know how to be vulnerable, with no pretense. Now it's walk onstage and, especially in our acoustic shows, just be flat-out honest and open. It's really helped me realize that's actually what fans want—they want 100 percent honesty and feeling like they got to know you better."

A concert for ensemble and interactive computer music systems presented by the UB Department of Music and the Hiller Computer Music Studios, featuring the E-MEX Ensemble, from Essen, Germany performing works by Hans Tutschku, Hilda Paredes, Christoph Maria Wagner, UB alumnus Carter Williams, and faculty member Cort Lippe.

CBE Seminar - Systems Bioengineering Dissection Of Skeletal Muscle Stem Cell Fate And Function - University at Buffalo April 04, 2018 - New York

Muscle stem cells (also called satellite cells) reside in defined microenvironmental compartments in skeletal muscle tissue and are essential for its homeostasis and regeneration throughout adulthood. After muscle damage, muscle stem cells (MuSCs) divide through self-renewal, yielding progeny that both retain a Pax7-expressing stem-cell phenotype and also differentiate into myogenic progenitor cells (myoblasts), which further commit and fuse to repair myofibers. In aging and inherited muscular dystrophies, MuSC contributions to muscle repair are defective, owning to an altered regulation of self-renewal fate outcomes resulting in aberrant differentiation and premature senescence. We have recently identified that aging-related MuSC dysfunction is due in part to a heterogeneous and cell-autonomous activation of the p38 MAPK pathway and devised an ex vivo strategy, based on mechano-sensitive signaling, to rejuvenate aged MuSCs. In this talk, I will discuss recent and on-going efforts to dissect the MuSC cell-fate regulatory networks using systems-level gene expression and phosphoprotein network models. We have employed single-cell mass cytometry and RNA-sequencing to provide a refined set of molecular definitions to the muscle stem and progenitor cell functional hierarchy and discovered dysfunctional MuSC subpopulations that are increasing observed in advanced aging. Based on these insights, we have designed combinatorial biomaterial-based microenvironments to engineer the selective expansion of transplantable MuSCs, and have resolved biomanufacturing approaches for autologous muscle cell therapies at the clinical scale.

Elia is an austere and detached Jewish psychoanalyst who lives in the same building as his ex-wife, with whom he is still secretly in love.

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 18 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. Considered a 'songwriter's songwriter', his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others. In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched. He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit.

Since forming in Cleveland, OH in 2010, Broccoli Samurai has taken the club and festival scene by storm. Broccoli Samurai has sculpted a unique blend of their o...wn sound making something fresh in the scene. The band has been thrilling audiences across the nation winning them a massive and fiercely loyal fan base with their synth-laden progressive electronica sound fused with soulful hints of funk and jazz. Eager fans pack dance floors and festival sets, waiting to get lost in the band's ambient soundscapes, anticipating every note that will force them to move with reckless abandon. Broccoli Samurai's line-up includes founding member Ryan "Bruce" Hodson on keys and synth, Cameron Bickley on drums and percussion, Michael Vincent on guitar and keys and synths, and Bassist Zachary Wolfe Nagi-Schehl

If joy were a person, he'd bring both peace and frenzy. He'd be full of music, light, and energy that soothes even as it stirs us up. Eyes closed, wire-rim glasses in place, mandolin pressed against his ribs, joy would be Sam Bush on a stage. "I feel fortunate that when it's time to play, no matter how I feel physically or mentally, once the downbeat starts, my mind goes to a place that's all music," says Bush. "The joy of the music comes to me and overtakes me sometimes––I just become part of the music." That rapt merging of life and art fills Bush's new album Storyman, a freewheeling collection that gleefully picks and chooses from jazz, folk, blues, reggae, country swing, and bluegrass to create a jubilant noise only classifiable as the Sam Bush sound. Many of the songs are stories––several of them true––and the legendary mandolin player co-wrote every one of them with friends including Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Jon Randall Stewart, Jeff Black, and others. "I'm hoping it just kind of flows for people and makes them go, 'Hey! It's a Sam record. It sounds like Sam and the band,'" Bush says. "But for the first time ever, I also find myself thinking, 'I hope you enjoy the stories.' It's my singer-songwriter record."

Ian Hobson — Sound Impressions: The Piano Music of Debussy & Ravel - SubCulture April 04, 2018 - New York

The immensely versatile and renowned pianist Ian Hobson, whose playing has been described by Gramophone as "intensely alive to expressive nuance, textural clarity and elastic shaping," will perform Sound Impressions: The Piano Music of Debussy and Ravel, a six-recital cycle of the complete solo piano works of the two composers, at SubCulture. The series will take place over the course of six months, from November 2017 to April 2018. Mr. Hobson's recitals will explore Debussy's revolutionary quest to reach beyond traditional harmonic means to portray people and nature in an ambiguous yet still immediate reality; as well as Ravel's brilliant, sometimes darkly-menacing solo piano works which tease the imagination with skillfully wrought intimations of spooky fairy tales, faraway places, and Gothic fantasies. Pianist and conductor Ian Hobson—called "powerful and persuasive" by The New York Times—is recognized internationally for his command of an extraordinarily comprehensive repertoire, his consummate performances of the Romantic masters, his deft and idiomatic readings of neglected piano music old and new, and his assured conducting from both the piano and the podium.

George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton's lifelong friend/foil Aaron Burr all make their mark in this astonishing new musical exploration of a political mastermind.

Withered formed in mid 2003 by Chris Freeman and Mike Thompson (founding members of the political/crust/grind outfit, Social Infestation). Coming out of a dark period riddled with death & depression, they were driven to explore the darker attributes of life and created a torturous yet liberating form of music. they accomplished this by combining norwegian black metal anguish, early swedish death metal riffing, modern american doom, and dramatic guitar melodies all while still clinging to their punk and grind roots. to culminate this, they needed an unrelenting percussion force. they called upon long time friend and accomplished drummer, Wes Kever (ex puaka balava w/ Mike T.). after writing a few songs they realized it was time to find the bassist that could audibly obliterate their listeners. They called upon Greg Hess (ex leechmilk). His menacing sludgy background helped cultivate withered's intense sound. withered immediately started touring and stirring up a frenzy in the eastern US with a 3 song demo. Formed in 2009, WAKE have maintained a focus on DIY touring, recording, and ethos, and produced music carefully devised to merge the punishment and speed of grindcore with nuance and diversity. Tens of thousands of miles and tens of thousands of blastbeats later little has changed: Defiance, self-reliance, and menacing riffs remain their fascination and sole commitment.

Taylor Haskins + Gnosis featuring Taylor Haskins (analog EVI, Trumpet), Nir Felder (Guitar), Henry Hey (Synths), Zach Danziger (Drums) - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 April 04, 2018 - New York

It all began in 1983, when a 12 year-old Taylor Haskins first became obsessed with Herbie Hancock's 'Rockit.' Watching Hancock talking about his equipment in a documentary soon thereafter was a life-changing moment for Haskins, one he claims has shaped nearly every decision in his life since. "I desperately wanted to be Herbie surrounded by that matrix of electronic music gear and computer screens. I knew little of it all but immediately seized on any opportunity to explore. We didn't have a computer at home yet, but my school's music department had an Alesis HR­16 drum machine and I became interested enough to start making rudimentary sequences on it. I'm pretty sure I was the first one to try and figure out what it actually did, as it had mostly been used as a metronome up until that point. I'd program something on it and then play along with it on trumpet or bash along on the drum kit that happened to be sitting there. I actually still have that same practice to this day."

Barbara Lipska + Jake Halpern The Neuroscientist who lost her mind - Rubin Museum of Art April 04, 2018 - New York

Neuroscientist Barbara Lipska had been studying the schizophrenic brain for 30 years, dissecting and analyzing slices of the brain to better understand mental illness. It wasn't until she began to experience changes of her own mental capacities that she realized what these illnesses could truly do. As brain tumors invaded Lipska's frontal cortex, her behaviors changed, memories disappeared, and paranoia flourished. Since treatment, Lipska has left her own brain tumors behind, but not the memory of how they altered her perceptions so deeply. She takes the Brainwave stage with her son-in-law, writer Jake Halpern, to discuss the science behind her experiences and their repercussions on both her and her family's futures.

Sedona, New Myths, Monte, Petra Jarrar, DJ Jess Louise Dye (High Waisted) - Knitting Factory Brooklyn April 04, 2018 - Brooklyn

Some say she's Dirty Pop, others say she's Femme Funk. All bets aside, Los Angeles born/Brooklyn based musician has just set herself center stage into the world of Pop and beyond as Sedona. With her debut single "Call Me Up" turning heads, her soulful power bop is more than just a song, but rather, a femme anthem music lovers from today, tomorrow, and yesterday can enjoy. Sedona grew up singing in the shower to leading female pop icons like Diana Ross, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Stevie Nicks, Sade - the list goes on and on. Their aesthetic broke a lot of social barriers for women, inspiring Sedona to do the same. Her debut single "Call Me Up," is about knowing your own worth and making others feel empowered. Combining her favorite R&B grooves from The Dramatics and Isley Brothers with a sprinkle of Jazz Fusion delight from Carlos Santana, she's been addicted to music that makes you want to get up and move ever since she can remember hearing it. Aside from her pop and funk influences, Sedona's roots have been buried in lullaby rock bands like The Beach Boys, Steely Dan, Steve Miller Band, and The Velvet Underground. Her self-written and self-directed music video embodies how close she holds all of her work to her heart. With her music Sedona aims to be political while remaining personal to create a longstanding balancing act between power and play. The rest of her EP, Home Before Dawn, is set to come out in Summer 2018. Having a songwriter mama and piano tuner/jazz photographer for a father, there was never a quiet moment for Sedona, and she'd like to keep it that way.

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.

"Roads to Oceans" (RTO) is an original melodic rock band from Long Island, NY. Their music can be added into playlists including Journey, Van Halen and Bon Jovi with songs about babes, beaches and good times!

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

All Open Rehearsals are "working" rehearsals and therefore the program may not be played in its entirety. Additionally, we cannot guarantee the appearance of any soloist at an Open Rehearsal.

What if dreams could be broadcast for the purpose of entertainment? Could you consume the innermost thoughts of another person on screen? If you could, what does that say about an attention-starved audience? More importantly, what would become of the dreamer?

The North Carolina quintet—Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. [lead vocals, keyboards], Paul Waggoner [lead and rhythm guitar, backing and lead vocals], Dustie Waring [rhythm and lead guitar], Blake Richardson [drums], and Dan Briggs [bass, keyboards]—explore these themes by personally smashing boundaries once again.

It's one of the most intriguing yet poorly-understood trends of our time: the creation and growth of Bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency. The surge of interest in cryptocurrencies has been met with everything from wild enthusiasm to government clampdowns, resulting in dramatic and frequent price fluctuations. The huge upswings haven't impressed skeptics; and the precipitous drops in value have not dissuaded the true believers. In Asia, meanwhile, different countries have responded in very different ways to the rise of interest in cryptocurrencies – and indeed it may be that the greatest swings in both valuation and opinion may come from that part of the world. Why have Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies drawn so much attention? What will the future bring – short-term and long-term? Join us for a special edition of the "Asia Briefing" series, featuring a conversation with Michael Novogratz, long-time investor and CEO of Galaxy Investment Partners, a diversified merchant bank dedicated to the digital currency and blockchain sectors.

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.

Facebook: /IrvingPlaza Twitter: @IrvingPlaza Instagram: @IrvingPlaza Snapchat: IrvingPlazaNYC ARTIST INFO In the early stages of finding his voice as an artist, singer/songwriter/producer EDEN made only one rule for himself: "I could do whatever I wanted, as long as it didn't sound like anything I'd ever heard," says the Dublin-based 21-year-old otherwise known as Jonathon Ng. With his upcoming EP 'i think you think too much of me,' EDEN channels that passion for innovation into a guitar-heavy take on electronic pop and proves himself an artist of uncompromising originality. Throughout 'i think you think too much of me,' EDEN achieves a sonic expansiveness sourced partly from what he describes as "this ridiculous to-and- fro of musical tastes I've gone through in my life," pointing out that past phases have included everything from boy bands to Guns N' Roses to screamo to Eminem. Growing up in Dublin, Ng learned to play violin at age seven at the urging of his parents and -- through that classical training -- discovered his natural musicality. "After that I started playing the piano at our house, and then later I borrowed my auntie and uncle's guitar and taught myself to play that too," he says. "I still can't read piano or guitar sheet music, but I just had this knack for picking up instruments and figuring out chords." By his early teens, music had become Ng's main obsession. "My two goals in life were to be an astronaut or a musician, and somehow being a musician seemed like less of a longshot." Ng later joined in several bands with friends, but felt frustrated by his lack of creative control. Then, after witnessing the success of such artists such as Skrillex and Deadmau5, he realized he could make music without a band, by himself on the computer. At age 16 he began creating electronic music, experimenting with production and eventually releasing songs as The Eden Project. The solo approach suited his prolific nature, and in three years he turned out nearly 100 tracks. "Once I get an initial idea, I know exactly what the completed song is going to sound like," he notes. "Basically everything I do is out of instinct. I get a feeling and I run with it." As his music evolved and took on a more melodic and vocal-centric aesthetic, Ng rechristened himself as EDEN and newly embraced his pop inclinations. In August 2015 EDEN made his debut with 'End Credits' and -- despite making zero effort to promote it -- soon found the EP gaining major attention and ultimately amassing more than 95 million streams as well as selling out his first US tour. That momentum continued to build as EDEN released a cover of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" in November 2015, a soulfully cinematic track that hit #1 on HypeM's popular chart and racked up a million cumulative streams in one week. With a second sold out tour across North America and Europe under his belt, EDEN remains guided by a restless creativity. "I'm not one of those people who could create 'sex v2' and be happy with that -- it's progress or nothing," he says. "I very much write from how I'm thinking or feeling right now, so if I do the same thing twice that's kind of worrying. You need to constantly progress as a human, let alone as a musician." And for EDEN, that evolution is closely linked to personal catharsis. "I'm just trying to make something that feels very real and honest to me," he says. "And if it helps people that's great, but I'm not really thinking about that when I'm writing. Making something that I can stand by forever, without caring about what anyone else thinks of it -- for me that's always the goal."

Dr. Octagon is a persona created and used by American rapper Keith Matthew Thornton, better known as Kool Keith. First appearing on Thornton's 1996 debut solo album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, Dr. Octagon is an extraterrestrial time traveling gynecologist and surgeon from the planet Jupiter. Thornton performed and released two albums under the alias. The character was murdered by Dr. Dooom on Thornton's 1999 album First Come, First Served, and was briefly revived before once again being killed on Thornton's 2008 album Dr. Dooom 2, in response to the release of The Return of Dr. Octagon, an album largely produced without Thornton's involvement. Thornton and KutMasta Kurt recorded two songs under the alias Dr. Octagon, "Dr. Octagon" and "Technical Difficulties." Thornton mailed the songs to radio stations as a teaser, as well as giving copies to several DJs, as well as producer Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, resulting in the production of Dr. Octagonecologyst. The album was recorded in Automator's studio in the basement of his parents' San Francisco home. Dr. Octagonecologyst featured the work of turntablist DJ Qbert and additional production by KutMasta Kurt. An instrumental version of the album was released under the title Instrumentalyst (Octagon Beats). KutMasta Kurt later pursued legal action against Automator because Kurt's demos had initiated the project.

The ambiguity and abstruseness of Todd's subsequent actions is typical of Daves's complex character development.

Brian Culbertson - 'Colors of Love' Tour - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill Through April 05, 2018 - New York

Brian Culbertson is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer known for his distinct brand of genre-crossing contemporary jazz, R&B and funk.

Inspired by the iconic R&B-jazz-pop artists of the 1970s like Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn and others, Culbertson started composing original music for his seventh grade piano recital and hasn't stopped since, amassing 30 Billboard No. 1 singles (and counting!) and a deep catalogue of 18 albums, most of which have topped the Billboard contemporary jazz charts.

Drift. 2017. Germany. Directed by Helena Wittmann. 96 min. U.S. Premiere Filmmaker-artist Helena Wittmann's subtly audacious first feature follows friends Theresa, a German, and Josefina, an Argentinian, as they spend a weekend together on the North Sea, taking long walks on the beach and stopping at snack stands. Eventually they separate— Josefina eventually returns to her family in Argentina and Theresa crosses the Atlantic for the Caribbean—and the film gives way to a transfixing and delicate meditation on the poetics of space. Self-consciously evoking the work of Michael Snow and masterfully lensed by Wittmann herself, Drift is by turns cosmic and intimate.

Dene wos guet geit (Those Who Are Fine). 2017. Switzerland . Directed by Cyril Schäublin. In Swiss-German; English subtitles. 71 min. New York Premiere This dark comic study of an alienated contemporary Zurich begins by following an impassive twenty-something, a call center worker by day who initiates phone scams targeting elderly workers after hours. The film then spirals out to incorporate into its narrative city residents—police, bank tellers, reporters—obliquely linked to this swindle. Swiss filmmaker Cyril Schäublin's feature debut (following a half-dozen short films to his name, including Stampede, ND/NF 2013) is a razor-sharp, formalist satire, using the city's grey concrete architecture; clipped, digit-dominated exchanges between urbanites (phone numbers, Wi-Fi passwords, credit cards); and even a dash of sci-fi-esque atmospherics to portray a fractured, contemporary dystopia.

Dr. Octagon is a persona created and used by American rapper Keith Matthew Thornton, better known as Kool Keith. First appearing on Thornton's 1996 debut solo album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, Dr. Octagon is an extraterrestrial time traveling gynecologist and surgeon from the planet Jupiter. Thornton performed and released two albums under the alias. The character was murdered by Dr. Dooom on Thornton's 1999 album First Come, First Served, and was briefly revived before once again being killed on Thornton's 2008 album Dr. Dooom 2, in response to the release of The Return of Dr. Octagon, an album largely produced without Thornton's involvement. Thornton and KutMasta Kurt recorded two songs under the alias Dr. Octagon, "Dr. Octagon" and "Technical Difficulties." Thornton mailed the songs to radio stations as a teaser, as well as giving copies to several DJs, as well as producer Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, resulting in the production of Dr. Octagonecologyst. The album was recorded in Automator's studio in the basement of his parents' San Francisco home.

"If you're going to sing something, it might as well be something important," reflects The Black Angels' Alex Maas. That ethos is the pulsing heartbeat of 'Death Song,' the Austin neo-psych rockers' first new album in four years and their most fully realized work to date. Written well before the vitriolic election cycle and the uncertainty left in its wake, these songs now form an uncanny soundtrack to our modern American climate of division and anxiety, wrapping up the personal and the political into dense layers of provocative insight. Part protest, part emotional catharsis, this is a troubled record for troubled times, and in that sense, it's classic Black Angels. "Our music has always been driven by the fear of the unknown and what's to come," explains Maas. "Growing up in Texas, in the Bible Belt, you'd have this feeling as a kid in church on Sundays that your whole entire world was just hanging by a string." On 'Death Song,' the band explores what happens when that string snaps. Volatile, fuzzed-out guitars and crashing percussion meet swirling, reverberating vocals in a cinematic tempest of distrust and disgust. Attraction and self-loathing, greed and desire, faith and brutality are all intertwined, as the lyrics explore the kind of timeless questions that have dogged mankind for eternity. How much ugliness are we willing to perpetuate in the quest for beauty? Can we ever truly share what's inside of our hearts? How long can we subject ourselves to the same self-destructive cycles before everything comes collapsing down around us?

Hailing from South Korea, Song YI Jeon is a singer and composer who deftly combines modern jazz harmony and odd time signatures with singable melodies that instantly catch the ear of the listener.

Song Yi Jeon's new album 'Movement of Lives' release concert will be releasedat The Jazz Gallery on April 5th.

Color, rhythm and unrestrained expression are boundless in Ali Cockburn's abstract paintings. Working in primarily acrylic on canvas because of the medium's dexterity, Cockburn's application of paint ebbs and flows like the oceans that inspire her. The artist explains: "An ex-national swimmer and now an avid Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Boarder, I take a lot of inspiration from the ocean, its moods, the various life forms within it and the freedom and joy one experiences when in or near it." In works such as Ocean Floor, estuaries of sea foam, green, white and blue paint writhe and dance around each other, eventually gathering in white, alkaline clusters reminiscent of ocean spray that bubble and flail to the edges of the canvas. In Fire Falcon, luminous shades of bright yellow, orange, crimson and ash gray melt, fold and finally coalesce towards the center of the composition in a lava-like rhythm. Cockburn's works are at once highly emotive and redolent of the natural world. The artist currently resides in Ballito on the East Coast of South Africa.

Feminists in Fashion with Norma Kamali and Christene Barberich - Museum of the City of New York April 05, 2018 - Upper East Side

Although fashion has sometimes been seen as anti-feminist, the cut of a top or the flash of a thigh can empower women to decide for themselves what it means to be female.

Creator of such iconic styles as the sleeping bag coat and "athleisure," Kamali has emerged as one of the most influential women in fashion in the last five decades.

There is no other voice in fado like that of award-winning and chart-topping Ana Moura. Her exquisite voice strolls freely through the Portuguese tradition, flirting elegantly with pop and broadening the soul-bearing genre to stunning results. Ana grew up steeped in fado and its traditions and although she experimented with pop and rock music during adolescence, her commitment to fado never waned and she became a regular in the local fado culture, releasing her first album to critical acclaim in 2003. She captured the attention of Caetano Veloso, Mick Jagger, and Prince, which brought about inspired crossover collaborations and performances. Ana released her seventh full-length album, Desfado, in 2013, which spent 150 weeks on the Portuguese charts and was certified quintuple platinum, and her 2016 release, Moura, went platinum in her native Portugal. Ms. Moura's fado never forgets about the music's past, but it lives in the moment." - The New York Times

Through music, visuals, dance, and narrative, avant-garde percussionist William Hooker portrays the movement of African–Americans from the American South to points north during the years of 1935–1950. The Great Migration features music accompanied by dance; a classical soloist; video; and narratives from 97-year-old Alton Brooks and Nannie Lampkin, who experienced this historical period firsthand. William Hooker is an artistic whole, a vast circle of vision and execution. A body of uninterrupted work beginning in the mid-seventies defines him as one of the most important composers and players in jazz. As bandleader, Hooker has fielded ensembles in an incredibly diverse array of configurations. Each collaboration has brought a serious investigation of his compositional agenda and the science of the modern drum kit. As a player, Hooker has long been known for the persuasive power of his relationship with his instrument. His work is frequently grounded in a narrative context. Whether set against a silent film or anchored by a poetic theme, Hooker brings dramatic tension and human warmth to avant-garde jazz. His ability to find fertile ground for moving music in a variety of settings that obliterate genre distinctions offers a much-needed statement of social optimism in the arts.

A four piece from Philadelphia, Cleric's music mixes elements of grindcore, avant garde composition, doom and... something else entirely? Influenced by other metal pioneers such as Meshuggah, Converge, Fantômas, and Neurosis, their music zeroes in on a level of brutality and experimentation that a single band rarely maintains even for a few seconds. In their six years since inception, Cleric has released a number of EPs and a 12" picture disk through Sound Devastation Records (UK), all of which (for their very high quality and unique & intricate sounds and artwork) have garnered praise and die-hard underground accolade. Having been around awhile, and taken a lot of shit & not given up & built themselves up internally to handle whatever bullshit this world flings their way, this band is just beginning its walk down their shining path.

If you chat with us, we'll buy you a beer. After all, we're not your regular boss…we're Hot Boss.

Growing up means never apologizing for who you are, and what you've been through. And for Kelsea Ballerini, one of Country's new voices, growing up also meant having the courage to put it all – the loss, the love and the highs and lows of life – into song. The result? Unapologetically, Ballerini's sophomore LP, a collection of songs – all which she wrote or co-wrote, as on her Gold-certified debut The First Time – meant to share her experiences over the past two years like a sonic journal, inviting listeners to open the book of her story and listen along.

Pacific City Sound Visions Flex: Francesco Cavaliere / Lieven Martens Moana / Sea Urchin / Typhonian Highlife - Issue Project Room April 05, 2018 - Brooklyn

Thursday, April 5th, ISSUE is pleased to present the debut NYC showcase of Pacific City Sound Visions, an experimental label helmed by Spencer Clark, well known for his work with seminal noise duo The Skaters (with James Ferraro), and his alternative aliases Tarzana, Fourth World Magazine, and Monopoly Child Star Searchers. The evening features debut American performances from Francesco Cavaliere and Leila Hassan, as well as new work from Lieven Martens Moana and Clark's own Typhonian Highlife project. Berlin-based Italian sound artist Francesco Cavaliere presents one of his "audio stories" -- an invented mythological narrative surrounded by abstract electronic music, presented in Italian with english subtitles. After years of live performance and intense studio work, Francesco has developed a unique style using his voice and an incredible archive of homemade sound effects as his primary sound sources. Inspired by extended, fragmented surfaces from literature and film, Cavaliere has iteratively developed a veritable dictionary to catalogue the strange beings that inhabit his universes, undefined by reference points: hybrids of objects, minerals, animals, plants, planets, trails, cosmic objects and physical and perceptual phenomena. For this performance, Cavaliere presents work described as "a design of dust and debris on some magic sand...a highly dangerous archaeo-cosmic zone."

FOREVER PLAID started right here at the West Bank nearly 30 years ago before transforming uptown for nearly 2000 performances. It has played on every continent(except the South Pole) in thousands of cities. The Plaids miss New York and the Laurie Beechman. We want to welcome it back for a stirring 3 performances as a benefit to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. In case you don't remember, Forever Plaid is the story of a semi-professional harmony group that meet their demise on the way to their first big gig, the night the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan Show, February 9, 1964. But Cosmos smiles and allows them to slip through a hole in the ozone layer and the return to earth to do the show that they never got to do in life. This hilarious, heart-felt harmonic convergence is destined to fill your spirit with mayhem, mirth and music.

The brainy and beautiful Belle yearns to escape her provincial life...and her brute of a suitor, Gaston. However, Belle gets more adventurous than she wanted when she becomes a captive in the Beast's enchanted castle! The performance runs for one hour and is followed by a meet and greet with the cast.

Sir András Schiff, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall April 05, 2018 - New York City

Twisting threads of counterpoint, effervescent wit, and melancholy laments define the music that spans Bach to Brahms on this program. Bach's Prelude and Fugue in B Minor are sublime, while the poignant tone and opening theme of Mozart's Rondo in A Minor prefigure Chopin. Forlorn episodes appear in Brahms's final piano works, but also rays of sunshine, gentle cheer, and heroic resolve. Sir András Schiff is a master of this repertoire and "stands with perhaps only a handful of pianists in his total achievement of the most severe beauty" (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium. Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium's ability to bring through the extremely specific evidence to the sitter. This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client's loved ones in spirit. Cindy has been extremely intuitve since very early childhood. At the age of 10 she had her first memorable experience with a spirit. Days after losing a childhood friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience and convinced herself it was just a dream. It wasn't until her early 20's that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this "awakening" she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multi-faceted abilities as a psychic medium. She began training not only in the United States but also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. She believes in compassionately sharing her gift.

Cse Seminar - Privacy Tools For Sharing Research Data - University at Buffalo April 05, 2018 - New York

Salil Vadhan's research centers around the interface between computational complexity theory and cryptography. Complexity theory studies the power and limitations of efficient computation, and cryptography aims to design protocols that withstand adversarial behavior. Within these general areas, Vadhan has focused on the topics of pseudorandomness, the theory of efficiently generating objects that "look random" despite being constructed with little or no randomness, and zero-knowledge proofs, which are interactive proofs that are convincing yet reveal nothing other than the validity of the assertion being proven. One of Vadhan's contributions in the area of pseudorandomness was the discovery (with Reingold and Wigderson) of the zig-zag graph product for constructing expander graphs , which has been used in or inspired the solution of several long-standing open questions in theoretical computer science. In the area of zero-knowledge proofs, Vadhan's work began with his Ph.D. thesis (MIT, 1999), which provided a comprehensive complexity-theoretic understanding of a subclass of zero-knowledge proofs known as statistical zero-knowledge proofs. In the last few years, Vadhan and his students have returned to this topic, and have extended this complexity-theoretic study to include the most general notions of zero knowledge. As a result, they have managed to reduce or eliminate the complexity assumptions used in many fundamental results about zero-knowledge proofs.

Latin Grammy winning songstress Vanessa da Mata is one of the biggest stars in Brazilian music today. Here irresistible mix of reggae, funk and Brazilian pop have delighted fans around the world for over 15 years. After a highly successful US debut tour in 2017, Da Mata returns with the "Caixinha de Musica (Music Box) Tour" with stops in Miami Beach, Doral, Orlando, Atlanta, New York and Baton Rouge. Born in Mato Grosso, Brazil, in 1976, da Mata grew up listening to venerated artists like Antonio Carlos Jobim, Milton Nascimento, and Luiz Gonzaga, as well as the sounds of Rio she picked up on her radio. At 15, she relocated to Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, and began performing in clubs, soon moving to São Paulo to continue her career. She joined a reggae band, even singing with the famed Jamaican group Black Uhuru for a stint, while playing basketball and working as a model in her free time. Da Mata teamed up with Chico César, and wrote the song "A Força Que Nunca Seca," the title track for icon Maria Bethânia's 1999 album, and soon she was also working on pieces for major stars like Daniela Mercury, Ana Carolina, and César himself. Now with some years of experience under her belt, da Mata decided to finally record her own solo material, releasing her self-titled debut in 2002. It was her next album, "Essa Boneca Tem Manual", however, that really pushed her into the limelight, aided by the strength of the single "Ai Ai Ai." Three years later the singer's third album "Sim" won a Latin Grammy for "Best Album" and featured appearances from the acclaimed pianist João Donato and American rocker Ben Harper. The hit song "Boa Sorte" (Good Luck) with Harper reached the top of the charts in Brazil, South America and Europe. In 2018 Vanessa da Mata is touring to support the brand new release "Caixinha de Musica" (Music Box) on Sony Music, a live DVD and CD of her best songs with new arrangements and also some new material.

"Timeless... Measured, perceptive storytelling. A singer with an unmistakable & communicative voice, able to convey hope & hurt with equal clarity." – Pitchfork The Weather Station is the fourth—and most forthright—album by The Weather Station, the project of Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman. Her most fully realized statement to date, it is a work of profound urgency, artistic generosity, and joy. Self-titled and self-produced, the album unearths a vital new energy from Lindeman's acclaimed songwriting practice, marrying it to a bold new sense of confidence. "I wanted to make a rock and roll record," Lindeman explains, "but one that sounded how I wanted it to sound, which of course is nothing like rock and roll." The result is a spirited, frequently topical tour de force that declares its understated feminist politics, and its ambitious new sonic directions, from its first moments. On past records, Lindeman has been a master of economy. Here her precisely detailed prose-poem narratives remain as exquisitely wrought as ever, but they inhabit an idiosyncratic, sometimes disorderly, and often daring album that feels, and reads, like a collection of obliquely gut-punching short stories. Her previous album Loyalty was recorded at La Frette Studios in France in the winter of 2014 with Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist). Nominated for the 2015 Polaris Music Prize, it earned praise from The Guardian, Pitchfork, NPR Music, Uncut, and MOJO, among many others, who celebrated its delicate, carefully worded verse, filled with double meanings, ambiguities, complex metaphors, and rich details of the everyday. Lindeman and her band have toured extensively in North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan, both as a headliner and as support for artists such as The War on Drugs, The Mountain Goats, Damien Jurado, Bahamas, and Basia Bulat.

Zephyr Ann is a New York–based DJ and writer whose work has appeared on Okayplayer and in Top Rank magazine, and The Duchess is a London-born, Brooklyn-based DJ. She hosts a monthly party in Brooklyn, and radio show on waxx.fm, both with the same name: Spiritual | Mental | Physical. Her practice is of a highly emotional and spiritual nature resulting in sets that are unbound by genre — inclusive and energizing, raw and honest. Sonny Daze is a Chicago native who has one of the more endearing DJ origin stores we've heard: as a kid, he would put a speaker in the window of his grandparent's house and play music, yelling the name of each song through a fan. He's come a long way since then and has spent nearly two decades spinning records for top-notch dance floors — with very little yelling and lots of positive vibes.

"I don't want to be in an emo band anymore," proclaims SORORITY NOISE frontman Cameron Boucher. "But I have no problem with people calling us that, because in the strictest of senses, we are an emotionally driven band." That, is Sorority Noise in a nutshell: part of a movement, but also discrete and determined to break free from the pack. Truth be told, the Connecticut-based quartet—Boucher, guitarist/vocalist Adam "Scuff" Ackerman, bassist/vocalist Ryan McKenna and drummer Charlie Singer—have always operated a little differently than most of their peers. For starters, Boucher attended the University of Hartford for jazz saxophone, while guitarist Ackerman studies acoustics and upright bass. But it's not just their unorthodox musical chops that set the band apart in the underground punk scene. With the release of their Topshelf Records debut, JOY, DEPARTED, Sorority Noise—recently named one of the 100 Bands You Need to Know in 2015 by Alternative Press—are poised to break out in a big way. Joy, Departed is more than just the best iteration of Sorority Noise to date; the album also marks a creative shift for Boucher, who draws musical influence from a diverse crop of acts spanning Regina Spektor and jazz trumpeter Chet Baker to The Smiths and Broken Social Scene—and previously spent time fronting screamo band Old Gray. In some ways, the singer says he approached the creative process like writing his very first album. Boucher started Sorority Noise in late 2013 with friends as an outlet to explore musical styles outside his work in Old Gray. The group then recruited Ackerman and issued their debut full-length, Forgettable, in May 2014. Much buzz—and tours with rising stars Modern Baseball and The Hotelier—followed, as did a split 7" with Somos and the arrivals of Singer (whom Boucher had played with in Old Gray) and McKenna.

JNTP has refined it's sound from the heavy power chords of hardcore to an edgier take on modern punk. Their music represents a nomadic, creative journey. The only remaining constant is their camaraderie...their brotherhood.

Ought's 2014 debut More Than Any Other Day brought the Montreal quartet sudden and universal critical acclaim – including high praise from Drowned in Sound, Exclaim, Rolling Stone, NME, and a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork. They have been riding a wave of furious productivity ever since, spending much of the past year on the road – where their channeling of passion, politics and charisma consistently connects with and galvanizes each and every audience. Based in Montreal, Ought are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and exuberant post-punk: dextrous and exacting while bursting with propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap'n Jazz as to Talking Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple. Guitarist and vocalist Tim Darcy's declarative, observational style ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or emotional detachment.

Yto Barrada & Julie Klear Once upon a Forest, the Animal Spring - FIAF & Le Skyroom Through April 06, 2018 - New York

In an imaginative new visual art exhibition, French-Moroccan multimedia artist Yto Barrada and American designer and art educator Julie Klear invite kids to create new worlds using colorful art pieces, to transform the FIAF Gallery into a moveable visual feast. Turning buildings into forests, or cities into flowers, kids are encouraged to play, hide, and interact with the animals and landscapes, while changing things up through words, languages, and sounds. By moving pieces around and creating original artwork, the kids will have a unique opportunity to work together and use the power of art and words to change the world! Animal Spring was originally created as an artful card game in four languages—English, French, Arabic, and Dutch, by the Wiels Museum in Brussels.

Djon África. 2018. Directed by João Miller Guerra and Filipa Reis - The Museum of Modern Art April 06, 2018 - Manhattan

Djon África. 2018. Portugal/Brazil/Cape Verde. Directed by João Miller Guerra and Filipa Reis. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 95 min. U.S. Premiere Documentarians João Miller Guerra and Filipa Reis turn the subject of their previous film into the central character of their debut fiction work. A Cape Verdean in Portugal, Miguel Moreira, also known as Djon África, travels back home to look for his birth father. This hopefully soul-searching journey quickly gets derailed as he comes across beautiful women, colorful parties, and the local liquor known as grogue. Written by Pedro Pinho, director of The Nothing Factory, also playing in this festival, this woozily intoxicating road movie is as youthful, charming, and adventurous as its title character.

The McLovins specialize in the creation of dynamic and improvised sound, influenced by the members' disparate and eclectic musical influences. The band currently includes Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger and Atticus Kelly. Rooted in the rowdy spirit of rock & roll, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger. With the power trio's newest album, Feel, bandmates Travis Gray, Rich Derbyshire, and Mateo Vosganian update the sound of their influences -- from Seventies rock to Motown to soul -- for a contemporary audience, taking influence from the past but never losing sight of the present. They aren't revivalists; they're modern men, carrying the torch of melodic, riff-ready, high-energy rock into new territory. Denizen Cousins Dave Schafer and Pete Vale bore the idea of forming a rock band late in 2011 as a therapeutic release from the pressurized day to day of New York City living. Adding on bass guitarist Andrew Wilkes, drummer Ben Selznick, and keyboard player James Gettinger, the band was complete in early 2012. For about a year, they would get together informally, sing, talk, and enjoy the company of each others' talents, focused initially only on their favorite rock covers and whatever other melodies happened to pass before their minds. But the energy in the room soon developed into something more, and they began to write songs together: ones they liked so much that they felt compelled to share.

As Boas Maneiras (Good Manners). 2017. Directed By Marco Dutra And Juliana Rojas - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 06, 2018 - Manhattan

As Boas Maneiras (Good Manners). 2017. Brazil/France. Directed by Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 135 min. New York Premiere An immaculately stylized twist on the monster movie, Dutra and Rojas's second collaboration (following the acclaimed Hard Labor) inventively engages matters of race, class, and desire. Set in São Paulo, the narrative initially concerns the curious relationship between rich, white, pregnant socialite Ana (Marjorie Estiano) and her new housemaid Clara (Isabél Zuaa). As the two women grow closer, their rapport turns first sexual then shockingly macabre. Good Manners evolves into a werewolf movie unlike any other, a delirious and compulsively watchable cross between Disney and Jacques Tourneur.

Ripe is seven musical soulmates who refuse to believe in a single definition of dance music. They are an unstoppable groove, an extended moment of ecstatic release, the catalyst for taking "just another night" and elevating it into something else entirely. They are the swagger of funk filtered through a rock anthem, a musical journey that somehow gets as stuck in your head as your favorite pop banger. They are the anchors of a rapidly growing community, a series of new friends becoming good friends becoming part of the extended family as their sound spreads and their world deepens. They are here to look at joy with the same depth as most people look at sadness, to find a happiness that is heavier and more meaningful than simply a distraction from the negative. Born all over, formed in Boston, Ripe is ready to bring the whole world to its feet.

Family Fridays at MoMath: “Playing with Pentominoes” with Henri Picciotto - National Museum of Mathematics April 06, 2018 - Gramercy

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

Iconic . . . legendary . . . unique . . . all can be used to describe Richard Lloyd, but the most accurate word might be "relevant." After a career spanning more than forty years, Richard Lloyd continues to make great records and deliver exciting live performances. Learning from the master himself, Jimi Hendrix, Richard was among the very few pioneers of the New York underground scene, headquartered at CBGB. With Tom Verlaine, a founding member of the seminal band, Television, Richard made some of the best rock and roll records of the all time–Marquee Moon and Adventure. Striking out on his own, Richard gave us Alchemy, Field of Fire, Radiant Monkey, The Cover Doesn't Matter, and more. Richard Lloyd was also the guitar master behind Matthew Sweet, John Doe, and Rocket From the Tombs.

This new 4K restoration of Kenji Mizoguchi's towering masterpiece offers viewers an opportunity to appreciate the nuance of cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa's exquisite images. A haunting and elegant fable about the illusory nature of desire set during the civils wars of Japan's 16th century, Ugetsu seamlessly weaves reality and fantasy together with painterly images that unfurl like scenes from an emaki scroll. Among the film's many breathtaking moments, the waterfront picnic between a potter and the ghost of a noblewoman is reportedly the only scene Miyagawa shot for Mizoguchi (out of eight total films) for which the famously stone-faced director complimented him.

Current Swell, Michael Gannon Band, A Valley Son - Knitting Factory Brooklyn April 06, 2018 - Brooklyn

An organic blend of roots blues, funk, rock, and world music, The Michael Gannon Band harkens back to a time when musicianship, soul, and originality were prized among music lovers and creators. Vintage feel, vocal harmony, and an innovative mix of styles combine to create music that feels familiar but breaks new ground. A singer and slide guitar specialist, Michael has shared the stage with Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band, and many other world class musicians. It's a group capable of bringing an ambitious musical vision to life.

Krallice is a black metal band formed in 2007 by New York City musicians Colin Marston, Mick Barr, Nick McMaster and Lev Weinstein. They play a progressive, highly technical style of black metal. The band has released eight studio albums and two EPs, most recently the LP Go Be Forgotten on November 21, 2017. They have been described as "one of the most interesting, engaging black metal bands to emerge in recent years"(pitchfork) and "one of the most important bands in modern black metal"(metal injection). Imperial Triumphant embodies the sounds of New York. The chaos, the menagerie, the perils and majesty of the greatest city on earth. We portray this great juxtaposition between high society luxury coexisting with absolute filth and urban decay. Our city is like the corpse of a giant. What was once so bright, grand and spectacular, is now filled with greedy maggots writhing towards their share of 'success'. We don't support it nor are we against. We only play the sounds of the New York City as we hear them.

Born in Plymouth, North Carolina, and raised in Mount Vernon, NY, Smoove is a gifted writer, comedian, and actor, who continues to entertain audiences all over the world with his unique brand of comedic funk. His breakout role on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” as Leon has firmly planted him as one of the best comedic actors today. He began his career in 1999, when he moved to Los Angeles and landed a recurring role on MTV’s “The Lyricist Lounge Show,” as well as featured guest spots on “The Chris Rock Show” and “Premium Blend.” This led to his first big feature film, where he narrated and starred in the cult classic “Pootie Tang,” reuniting with Rock. Smoove subsequently followed this up with a co-starring role opposite Adam Sandler in “Mr. Deeds.” After a season as a cast member on the sketch comedy program “Cedric the Entertainer Presents,” Smoove moved back to New York City where he landed a writing position on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” He later was a recipient of the 2007 Writers Guild award for “Best Comedy/Variety Series” for his work on the show. In the standup and acting worlds, Smoove has been featured on “Tough Crowd,” “Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza,” “Saturday Night Live” sketches and recurring spots on “Late Night with Conan O’ Brien,” “Everybody Hates Chris,”“’Til Death,” “Bent,” and “The Real Husbands of Hollywood.” Recently, he was seen as host of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” the Comedy Central standup series, “Russell Simmons Presents: The Ruckus,” and shot his own one-hour stand-up special, “JB Smoove: That’s How I Dooz It” for Comedy Central. Smoove also hosted the 2012 CLIO Awards, which celebrates the world’s best commercials on NBC. He co-starred in the CBS comedy “The Millers” and is launching season three of his show “Four Courses with JB Smoove” on the MSG Network. Smoove is also well-known for his recurring role of Leon, opposite Larry David on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” On the big screen, he appeared in “Date Night” with Steve Carell and Tina Fey and the Farrelly Brothers directed comedy, “Hall Pass,” as well as “The Sitter” with Jonah Hill, “We Bought a Zoo” featuring Matt Damon and “The Dictator” opposite Sacha Baron Cohen. Most recently, he appeared in Chris Rock’s movie, “Top Five.” Smoove’s unique comedic voice has also been put to good use in animation where he did a voiceover for a role in both “Ice Age 4” and “The Smurfs 2”. Smoove’s talents extend to other areas in the entertainment business. He has a development deal to create his own series in partnership with director Shawn Levy, whom he met and worked with on “Date Night.” He also expanded his comedy empire with the launch of “The Ruckus”, a comedy-based website focused on original and branded comedy content.

Matt Cusson, an award-winning singer/songwriter and pianist, continues to wow audiences and prove that he is the real deal.

North American Premiere This feature debut is an evocative and surprising exploration of female friendship, parallel realities, and the mysteries of everyday life.

In these tough times, it's not always easy to find high quality and fun ways to let off some steam and ease stress. It's harder still to find such diversions that are affordable. That's what Bottles of Laughs is all about. We bring you top-shelf comics who deliver a fine pairing of comedy and laughs at a price you can afford even if you don't have a champagne-level salary. Bottles of Laughs is brought to you by: Alex Barnett As the White, Jewish husband of a Black woman (who converted to Judaism) and the father of a 3-year old, Biracial son, Alex focuses on the challenges of being a parent in a bad economy and the issues that confront interracial families. Alex has been featured on the Katie Couric Show, Sirius/XM Radio's "Raw Dog Comedy," NBC's EVB Live, ComedyTime TV, RT TV America and NYC-TV and in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and CNN.com. In 2011, he won the 12th Annual Gilda's Club (Northern NJ) Laugh-Off. Francis Ellis When you first meet Francis, he seems like someone you might love to hate. A tall, Harvard-educated lacrosse player, Francis seems on the outside like the poster boy for arrogance, obnoxiousness, and condescending White privilege. But then he starts talking, and you realize he's still very much the modest guy from rural Maine with an endearing humility and a healthy dose of self-deprecation. Onstage, Francis speaks to the "challenges" that face a twenty-something in New York -- financial anxiety, relationship angst, and a love-hate relationship with fitness complicated by a love of late-night snacks. When he's not onstage performing standup, Francis (who's also studied improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade) is wandering around New York trying to come up with an answer to his parents' question of why he had to go to Harvard to become a comedian.

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.

Lionel Loueke picked up the guitar late at age 17. After his initial to exposure to jazz in Benin, he left to attend the National Institute of Art in Ivory Coast. In 1994 he left Africa to pursue jazz studies at the American School of Modern Music in Paris then came to the U.S. on a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music where he first encountered his future trio mates Massimo Biolcati and Ferenc Nemeth. After graduating Loueke was accepted to the Thelonious Monk Institute where he was able to study with his most significant mentors: Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Terence Blanchard. Praised by Hancock as "a musical painter," Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and conventional and extended guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative sound of his own. His Blue Note debut Karibu (2008) featured guest appearances from Hancock and Shorter with his trio and was met with wide acclaim. Mwaliko (2010) offered a series of intimate duets with Angelique Kidjo, Richard Bona, Esperanza Spalding and Marcus Gilmore. Heritage (2012) was co-produced by label mate Robert Glasper and found Loueke exploring a more electric sound with a new trio featuring Derrick Hodge on electric bass and Mark Guiliana on drums. His latest CD GAIA was recorded live in the studio with Bassist Massimo Biolcati & Drummer Ferenc Nemeth and produced by Blue Note President & Grammy winning producer Don Was.

Yesterday, today, tomorrow. Past, present, future. Through time and space, one man embarks on a bold thousand-year odyssey to defeat humankind's most indomitable foe: death. Hugh Jackman plays that man, devoted to one woman (Rachel Weisz) and determined to protect her from forces that threaten her existence. His quest leads him to a Tree of Life—and to an adventure into eternity. About Cabaret Cinema: Time Curated by Rubin Museum fellow and neuroscientist David Eagleman, Cabaret Cinema delves into the mysteries of time. Aside from their listed duration, movies often carry us through periods far beyond the minutes that pass as we sit in a theater. The narrative compulsion of "what happens next" can suspend time, be warped through sudden flashbacks, and inspire us to imagine a future beyond the two-dimensional celluloid. What does the world of cinema reveal about our experience of time?

Sarah Fraser won the Scottish Saltire First Book of the Year award for her highly praised debut The Last Highlander, which in 2016 also became a New York Times ebook bestseller. It is now the subject of a documentary, available on HistoryHit.TV. Both book and film dramatically recreate the story of Lord Lovat, last of the great Scottish- Celtic Highland chiefs. Between 1670 and 1747, Lovat lived in tumultuous times and met a bloody end on the scaffold, beheaded for his part in Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite rebellion. He has had a lively afterlife as grandfather of Jamie Fraser, the hero of Diana Gabaldon's hit series, Outlander. But truth is as strange as fiction, as Sarah will show in her talk about the life and afterlife of this great old style Fraser clan chief. Diana Gabaldon called The last Highlander 'a great book.'

Ought's 2014 debut More Than Any Other Day brought the Montreal quartet sudden and universal critical acclaim – including high praise from Drowned in Sound, Exclaim, Rolling Stone, NME, and a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork. They have been riding a wave of furious productivity ever since, spending much of the past year on the road – where their channeling of passion, politics and charisma consistently connects with and galvanizes each and every audience. Based in Montreal, Ought are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and exuberant post-punk: dextrous and exacting while bursting with propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap'n Jazz as to Talking Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple. Guitarist and vocalist Tim Darcy's declarative, observational style ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or emotional detachment.

Over the past 30 years, modern flamenco has been influenced and has incorporated elements of syncopation, jazz and Latino culture in the music, movement and footwork.

Spring Break, Hatchery Tours - Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium Through April 06, 2018 - Cold Spring Harbor

Lawrence Kasdan's tramped up and ruthless remix of Double Indemnity, sees a Florida heat-wave fry the brain of a dopey two-bit lawyer who falls into the trap of a bored and wealthy woman just out to pass the time while her husband's out of town with a bit of a steamy affair. As the clothes shed and the days pass, a plot hatches to kill her husband and make off with his mountain of money. Dopey lawyer being what he is, goes for it; but one can hardly blame him, it's for Kathleen Turner, after all.

For a long time, Japanese animation had a bad rep in America: "those freaky violent cartoons with the schoolgirls and the tentacle monsters." UROTSUKID?JI: THE LEGEND OF OVERFIEND is the film that's largely responsible for this reputation. A video store staple in America, Hideki Takayama's gruesome adaptation of Toshio Maeda's erotic horror comic had a brief stint in U.S. theaters rocking a well-earned NC-17 rating. Grim-faced and grotesque, Urotsukid?ji is a hellish Freudian vision of torn bodies, sexual depravity and bitter pessimism. The apocalyptic film picks up just before the prophesied rise of the demon-god The Overfiend, whose re-birth would merge the worlds of men and demons. As time of prophecy draws closer, demons flood into the dimension of men, throwing the Earth into a chaotic storm of sex and violence.

Pianist and composer Helen Sung leads the Dizzy's Club shows, and she has crafted an extraordinary series that celebrates Monk in song, dance, and as a singular jazz icon, with a different band and unique theme for each evening. "The genius of modern music," Thelonious Monk was an enormous influence on Sung and her musical evolution from classical to jazz piano. She was a member of the inaugural class of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance and a semifinalist in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition. For night one of the Monk Festival, Sung draws from vocalist Carmen McRae's legendary Carmen Sings Monk album, one of the best examples of "vocal Monk." Sung's band tonight features saxophonist John Ellis, bassist George DeLancey, and drummer Donald Edwards, with special guest vocalist Catherine Russell interpreting Monk's iconic melodies. Help us kick off the 2018 Monk Festival in style!

Madison, Wisconsin native Jason Ewald grew up in a musical household, and began honing his rhythmic foundation dancing to Creedence Clearwater Revival records while his father played along on the drums. Before he could legally enter, he would set up outside of Madison's King Club to listen to Clyde Stubblefield's (James Brown's 'Funky Drummer') Monday jam session. Jason moved to San Francisco in the late '90s, where he took to the vital jazz scene, playing with numerous groups and delving into straight-ahead and Brazilian styles. After inspiring stays in Brazil and Spain, he also began exploring his own direction as a songwriter and bandleader. Since arriving in New York City in 2007, Jason has seen his creative growth blossom, fed by the hum of city life and the energy of its inhabitants. His music is inspired by the refined sounds of 70s pop, the greasy soul of Muscle Shoals, the explorations of jazz, and the insistent rhythms of funk and rock. He has recently written and self-produced two albums, and can be seen performing live with his band EWALD, currently featuring Jason on drums and lead vocals, Jim Saxa on bass, Andreas Arnold on Guitar, and Kevin Bernstein on Keyboards

Ethel, the String Quartet Redefining Concert Music, Continues Popular Met Museum Concert Series - Metropolitan Museum of Art April 06, 2018 - Upper East Side

Since 2012, ETHEL, the acclaimed string quartet that Pitchfork.com described as "a necessary jet of cold water in the contemporary classical scene," has been serving as resident ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar. Marking the first time that a prominent musical group has been featured in that venue, ETHEL will performs there on a regular basis, sometimes with friends and collaborators, throughout the year. To enliven the Balcony Bar programming, the quartet also selects musical groups from ETHEL's expansive list of notable colleagues to perform when the group is on the road. This new programming initiative provides a variety of musical experiences to Met audiences delivered by a range of ensemble types and compositions. The Balcony Bar serves appetizers and cocktails on the second floor balcony overlooking the Great Hall. The performances, consisting of three sets between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m., are free with Museum admission. ETHEL + Friends @ Met Museum Performances at a Glance January 26-27 Loggins-Gookin Duo February 2-3 | Mivos Quartet February 9-10 | Laurence Hobgood Trio February 16-17 ETHEL February 23-24 ETHEL About ETHEL ETHEL was established in New York City in 1998, quickly earning a reputation as one of America's most adventurous string quartets—heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet and Soldier String Quartet, and part of a generation of young artists blending uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing—by playing with the intensity and accoutrements of a rock band. The New York Times has described them as "indefatigable and eclectic," and The New Yorker has deemed them "vital and brilliant." Nearly two decades into their singular career, ETHEL has in turn become seminal in its own right, a path-breaker for countless new genre-spanning ensembles, and a prolific commissioner of new music. At the heart of ETHEL is a collaborative ethos—a quest for a common creative expression that is forged in the celebration of community. The quartet creates and tours rich, often multimedia, productions including the evening-length ETHEL's Documerica, inspired by the tens of thousands of images shot as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's decade-long Project Documerica, launched in 1971; The River, a collaboration with Taos Pueblo flutist Robert Mirabal (album released June 2016); the introspective Grace, featuring ETHEL's arrangements of music by Ennio Morricone and Jeff Buckley; and Blue Dress, which pays homage to women making their musical mark on the 21st century. ETHEL has collaborated with artists including David Byrne, Bang on a Can All Stars, Kaki King, Todd Rundgren, Joe Jackson, Ursula Oppens, Juana Molina, Tom Verlaine, STEW, Andrew Bird, Thomas Dolby, Jeff Peterson, Laurence Hobgood, Jake Shimabukuro and Vijay Iyer. ETHEL's self-titled debut album was a Billboard "Best Recording of '03." Light ranked #3 on Amazon.com's "Best of '06." Oshtali: Music for String Quartet, '10, is the first commercial recording of American Indian student works, and Heavy, '12, was a Q-2 "Album of the Week." The recording of ETHEL'S Documerica, '15, was featured by The New York Times' Press Play and on iTunes' classical front page. The River with guest artist Robert Mirabal debuted in 2016, and was nominated for a NAMMY award. ETHEL has appeared as a guest artist on over a dozen music labels, to include: Laurence Hobgood's tesseterra (label TBD, 2017); The Paha Sapa Give-Back by Jerome Kitzke (Innova, 2014); (Cold Blue Two (Cold Blue Music, 2012); Glow by Kaki King (Velour Recordings, 2012); Blue Moth by Anna Clyne (Tzadik, 2012); The Duke by Joe Jackson (Razor & Tie, 2012); A Map of the Floating City by Thomas Dolby (Redeye Label, 2011); John the Revelator: A Mass for Six Voices by Phil Kline (Cantaloupe Music, 2008) with vocal group Lionheart; and the Grammy Award-winning, Dedicated to You: Kurt Elling Sings the Music of Coltrane and Hartman (Concord Records, 2009). The quartet regularly performs works by all of the members of the ensemble, alongside music by Philip Glass, Julia Wolfe, John King, Phil Kline, David Lang, Dan Friel, John Zorn, Missy Mazzoli, Anna Clyne, Steve Reich, Don Byron, Aleksandra Vrebalov, Marcelo Zarvos, Pamela Z, Evan Ziporyn and Terry Riley. Over the past five years, ETHEL has premiered 150+ new works, many of them commissioned by the quartet. ETHEL is the Resident Ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar and Ensemble-in-Residence at Denison University, where the quartet members were awarded honorary doctorates during the 2017 commencement exercises. ETHEL is: Ralph Farris (viola), Kip Jones (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello) and Corin Lee (violin).

Drift. 2017. Germany. Directed by Helena Wittmann. 96 min. U.S. Premiere Filmmaker-artist Helena Wittmann's subtly audacious first feature follows friends Theresa, a German, and Josefina, an Argentinian, as they spend a weekend together on the North Sea, taking long walks on the beach and stopping at snack stands. Eventually they separate— Josefina eventually returns to her family in Argentina and Theresa crosses the Atlantic for the Caribbean—and the film gives way to a transfixing and delicate meditation on the poetics of space. Self-consciously evoking the work of Michael Snow and masterfully lensed by Wittmann herself, Drift is by turns cosmic and intimate.

Dene Wos Guet Geit (Those Who Are Fine). 2017. Directed By Cyril Schäublin - The Museum of Modern Art April 07, 2018 - Manhattan

Dene wos guet geit (Those Who Are Fine). 2017. Switzerland . Directed by Cyril Schäublin. In Swiss-German; English subtitles. 71 min. New York Premiere This dark comic study of an alienated contemporary Zurich begins by following an impassive twenty-something, a call center worker by day who initiates phone scams targeting elderly workers after hours. The film then spirals out to incorporate into its narrative city residents—police, bank tellers, reporters—obliquely linked to this swindle. Swiss filmmaker Cyril Schäublin's feature debut (following a half-dozen short films to his name, including Stampede, ND/NF 2013) is a razor-sharp, formalist satire, using the city's grey concrete architecture; clipped, digit-dominated exchanges between urbanites (phone numbers, Wi-Fi passwords, credit cards); and even a dash of sci-fi-esque atmospherics to portray a fractured, contemporary dystopia.

On Saturday, April 7, the shops and restaurants at Grand Central Terminal are celebrating National Beer Day with special offerings and discounts all weekend long.

Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist. He began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s, as the city suffered post-industrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971. These compositions went unnoticed in the U.S. and Rodriguez eventually turned his efforts elsewhere, earning a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Wayne State University, running for political office and working construction and factory jobs to support his family. In the mid-1970s, his music gained airplay in Australia and New Zealand and he toured the area finding limited success as an overseas performer. Rodriguez was unaware that he had reached legendary folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa, where mistaken rumors circulated that he had perished. As it turns out, South African anti-Apartheid activists and musicians alike were inspired by his counterculture lyrics. In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching for Sugar Man, which has given Rodríguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. and his music is now reaching audiences worldwide. Rodriguez now tours extensively in South Africa, Australia, Europe, and the U.S., where he takes thoughtful appreciation in greeting longtime fans, and a new generation of listeners who find common ground in his music. His albums, Cold Fact and Coming from Reality have since been re-released on Light in the Attic records and the Searching for Sugar Man soundtrack is available on Sony Legacy. International media attention and accolades have since been bestowed upon both the film and the music.

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.

Of Scales & Feathers group exhibition curated by Travis Louie Opening Reception: April 7th, 6 - 8pm On view: April 7th - 28th, 2018 Spoke NYC is pleased to present Of Scales & Feathers, a group exhibition curated by Travis Louie. Featuring over 30 artists from around the globe, all of whom were asked to draw inspiration from shapes and textures that may have surfaced in their imagery in the past - scaled, finned and feathered creatures. The exhibition is comprised of works that range from the whimsical and absurd, to the dark and surreal. For Of Scales & Feathers, artists determined the meaning of scales, fins and feathers - Eric Joyner’s Patience depicts a 1950’s kitchen with a robot serving a once living feathered creature in the form of KFC fried chicken. Tiffany Turrill’s The Loveliest Bed in the World illustrates a female figure, floating at the bottom of the sea amidst sharks, starfish and other marine life. Alternatively, Jocelyn Henry’s Chicken or Fish combines the two elements, depicting a live chicken perched atop a sushi roll, nervously peering at the approaching chopsticks. About the exhibition, curator Travis Louie states, “There is a universal connection that we all have to these outer layers…and there is an obvious biological bridge between scales and feathers. I was curious what images would come to mind when this theme was tasked to the artists. I even told one artist that if they painted Rip Taylor with a feather boa, that would count!” Please join us Saturday, April 7th from 6 - 8pm for the opening reception of Of Scales & Feathers. Complimentary beverages will be served and some of the artists will be in attendance. For more information, or additional images, please email us at [email protected] Participating Artists: Allen Williams | Amy Sol | Bob Eggleton | Brandi Read | Caitlin Hackett | Camilla D’Errico | Dave Chung Dave Pressler | Eric Joyner | Fred Harper | Glenn Arthur | Glenn Barr | Jocelyn Henry | Kathie Olivas Keith Weesner | Kelly McKernan | Liz McGrath | Lola | Lou Pimentel | Luke Cheuh | Mark Garro Mia Araujo | Mike Dubisch | Nicholas Rampasaud | Olivia DeBerardinis | Stan Manoukian Stephen Hickman | Steve Ellis | Steven Daily | Tara McPherson | Tiffany Turrell | Travis Lewis Tristan Elwell | Vince Natale Featured Artwork: Glenn Arthur - Bathink Beauty

Cigarettes After Sex front man Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band's debut album, a gorgeously cinematic work released via Partisan Records on June 9th, 2017. After the phenomenal online break-out success of 2015's reverberant beauty 'Nothing's Gonna Hurt You Baby' from the early Cigarettes EP ('I.') from 2012, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas. As Greg explains, "This is like the novel or feature-length version of Cigarettes. I wanted it to feel like a complete work, where some of the imagery repeats – like it's all in the same world. It's very much a fulfilment of the feelings in the short works." That sense of fulfilment is richly felt on Cigarettes After Sex, which unspools like the most achingly romantic of movies: immersive, cohesive and transporting. Swooning in the spirit of influences such as Mazzy Star and Red House Painters, its sumptuous songs of love elevate Cigarettes to the ranks of those acts who create worlds of their own, exciting the most devoted kind of following – for Gonzalez, The Smiths were a reference point.

Guiding the audience through the journey will be narrator Reverend Rashad Raymond Moore, assistant minister at Abyssinian Baptist Church, providing historical context for the songs and helping to shape the listeners’ understanding of the concert. Under the musical direction of James Davis Jr., “A Soulful Celebration of Music” will also feature performances by singers Brandie Sutton, Lucia Bradford, Sam McKelton, La Fredrick Coaxner and Voices from Harlem.

In the past year, Perth-based duo SLUMBERJACK have brought their music to new heights, turning out massive club hits like "RA" and increasing their total streams to over 40 million across platforms. During that time, musicians Morgan Then and Fletcher Ehlers have also pushed to a new level in their artistry and carved out a more boldly challenging sound than ever before. With their first-ever headline tour in the works, SLUMBERJACK now deliver a new EP that, in Ehlers's words, "explores the dichotomies of light and dark and beauty and ugliness," and ultimately creates a world unto itself. Revealing SLUMBERJACK's more refined musicality and heightened experimentalism, the new EP Fracture is a potent composite of bass-heavy club anthems, hook-driven pop tracks, and lushly cinematic pieces that show their film-score-inspired sensibilities. With its moody intensity and gorgeously jagged textures, the EP's lead single and title track debuted in January and quickly became triple j's most played track for several weeks. "Fracture" features a powerful vocal performance from Sydney-based singer/songwriter Vera Blue, infusing the song with an emotional depth that endures throughout the EP. "We want to create club tracks that have a story to them," says Then. "You can dance to it at a festival or jam to it anywhere, but you can also listen more closely and study it and see how it relates to your own life."

The Mavericks were founded more than 25 years ago by Raul Malo and Paul Deakin as a standout alternative band in a Miami rock scene dominated by hair metal and punk. Improbably, they were noticed by super-producer Tony Brown in Nashville, and when they got signed to innovative MCA Records, they upended expectations in country music. Their blend of Cuban grooves and Bakersfield-inspired twang netted them several CMA and ACM Awards plus a GRAMMY in 1995. They charted numerous singles and albums while earning accolades as one of the finest live bands in the business. There was some time off and re-jiggering of personnel, but they came back strong with 2013's In Time and 2015's Mono, albums that provided abundant material for a refreshed and unmatched stage show.

Artist Bio Look for KIX– Steve Whiteman (lead vocals), Jimmy Chalfant (drums, vocals), Ronnie Younkins(guitars), Brian Forsythe (guitars) and Mark Schenker (bass)—to release their first new album in almost two decades on Aug 5th, thanks to their new partnership with Loud & Proud Records. What makes the project even more exciting and anticipated is that the album features the band's original line-up, with the exception of Schenker on bass. "The boys and I are so happy that our old friend, Tom Lipsky, has invited us to join the Loud & Proud family," exclaims Whiteman. "We worked with Tom and Madelyn Scarpulla on our last studio album, SHOW BUSINESS, and we're looking forward to working with them again with the release of the first new KIX album in almost 19 years! We'll still be coming to a dump near you very soon!" Loud & Proud Owner & President Tom Lipsky adds, "What I have always loved about KIX is they make rock 'n roll fun. What I love about their new music is that it's pure, genuine KIX music, straight up guitar rock with no compromise. They're not chasing trends or trying to re-invent themselves. They're simply doing what they do best…and now they can do it Loud and Proud!" Marking the re-emergence of KIX in early-2000's, the band had teamed up a few times a year to test the waters with reunion shows in the Maryland/Pennsylvania, which were very well received. Then in the summer of 2008, KIX performed outside the mid-Atlantic for the first time in 13 years at two of the biggest rock festivals in the U.S. Rocklahoma in Pryor, OK and Rock the Bayou in Houston, TX. The band was hailed by many music websites and attendees as "Best Performance" at both festivals, where they played alongside Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper, Tesla, Queesryche, Ratt, and more. As the demand for new music has never subsided and in fact has only increased over the last few years, the band decided that they can no longer ignore the overtures from their fans and are currently recording new KIX songs. The new album, due out summer 2014, is produced by Taylor Rhodes, who last worked with KIX on 1991's HOT WIRE album. Rhodes has also written hit songs for Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne and Journey.

Forever Plaid is the story of a semi-professional harmony group that met their demise on the way to their first big gig, the night the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan Show, February 9, 1964. But Cosmos smiles and allows them to slip through a hole in the ozone layer to do the show that they never got to do in life. Featuring such hits as Sixteen Tons, Chain Gang, Three Coins in the Fountain, Perfidia, Cry, Catch a Falling Star, Day-O, Gotta Be This or That, Matilda, and Heart and Soul, this hilarious, heart-felt harmonic convergence will have you humming along and rollin’ in the aisles from the delightful patter of the original clean-cut boy band – The Plaids.

Small groups of 15 to 20 people will move throughout our "Colored Museum" as they observe and interact with: • Aunt Ethel, who sings about creating Black people; • Miss Roj, who will welcome you to his decadent bar, The Bottomless Pit (were you can actually purchase drinks and snacks) as he tells it, "like it Tiz"; • Junie and Normal who share their heart-wrenching secrets that will shock and amaze you, and • the culminating exhibit, an uplifting and inspirational celebration of life, history, and the spirit. This brilliant masterpiece that was written by the remarkable director, playwright and producer, George C. Wolfe, is filled with stunning poetry, entertaining music, and characters who will break your heart one moment and have you splitting your sides the next. This unusual site-specific theatrical event includes three interludes during which you are encouraged to relax with a drink or snack as you experience this once-in-a-lifetime unique evening in the theatre.

In 1993, at the age of eleven, a young Eliza Bent, along with a friend, co-created, co-directed, and co-starred in an amateur historical film for a school project. In it, Bent portrayed Hawaii's last reigning monarch, Queen Liliuokalani. Twenty-five years later, Bent uses her home movie as a forensic document and as a jumping off point to lead audiences on a journey that grapples with personal history, legacy, and cultural appropriation.

Teatro La Re-Sentida: the Dictatorship of Coolness - NYU Skirball Center Through April 07, 2018 - New York

The Dictatorship of Coolness, an American premiere performed in Spanish with supertitles, is a raucous social satire reflecting on art, culture and contemporary lifestyles, inspired by Moliere´s "The Misanthrope." The show is set on the 1st of May, as Santiago's cultural and artistically elite gather to celebrate the new Minister of Culture. As the streets pulse with the ambiance of protest, the Minister realizes the hypocrisy and inefficiency of bourgeois culture and renounces capitalism and greed, turning the celebration into a nightmare. La Re-sentida (The Resentful) is a collective of young activists and artists from the Chilean national theatrical scene who regard theater as a critical instrument with major political responsibility. Their work embodies the pulses, visions and ideas of their generation and assumes as duty, audacity, the desecration of taboos and reflection generated from provocation. Their works give theatrical creation great political responsibility, understanding it as an instrument of critique, reflection and construction. Their works have been performed in more than 17 countries.

Salute to The Temptations & The Four Tops With Soul Infinity - Club Bonafide April 07, 2018 - New York

The Temptations and the Four Tops were two of the very greatest of all the Motown acts. The Temptations' long string of hits includes "My Girl," "Get Ready," "The Way You Do the Things You Do" and "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," while the Four Tops are known for eternal songs like "I Can't Help Myself," "Reach Out I'll Be There" and "Standing in the Shadows." Now, R&B tribute band Soul Infinity, featuring some of the most talented musicians in New York City, merge blues, funk and soul to bring back the sweet sounds of the 1960s and '70s during this concert at Club Bonafide in New York City.

In the past year, Perth-based duo SLUMBERJACK have brought their music to new heights, turning out massive club hits like "RA" and increasing their total streams to over 40 million across platforms. During that time, musicians Morgan Then and Fletcher Ehlers have also pushed to a new level in their artistry and carved out a more boldly challenging sound than ever before. With their first-ever headline tour in the works, SLUMBERJACK now deliver a new EP that, in Ehlers's words, "explores the dichotomies of light and dark and beauty and ugliness," and ultimately creates a world unto itself. Revealing SLUMBERJACK's more refined musicality and heightened experimentalism, the new EP Fracture is a potent composite of bass-heavy club anthems, hook-driven pop tracks, and lushly cinematic pieces that show their film-score-inspired sensibilities. With its moody intensity and gorgeously jagged textures, the EP's lead single and title track debuted in January and quickly became triple j's most played track for several weeks. "Fracture" features a powerful vocal performance from Sydney-based singer/songwriter Vera Blue, infusing the song with an emotional depth that endures throughout the EP. "We want to create club tracks that have a story to them," says Then. "You can dance to it at a festival or jam to it anywhere, but you can also listen more closely and study it and see how it relates to your own life."

Hayley sings. Ryan plays guitar and sings. Which means Ryan does more. Yeah, but Hayley puts way more time and effort into looking and sounding good on stage and is obviously the face of the project. Led by the legendary Ryan Montbleau and commanded by the illustrious Hayley Jane, there is rarely a disagreement or power struggle within the project. The two get along like peas and carrots. Except for when they don't. But they do. Yeah, sometimes. Hayley, you're ruining this bio right now. Well Ryan, I told you to just let me do it! That never ends well. And you're supposed to leave two spaces after the end of a sentence, I've had to go back and fix all of yours. What? I have never heard of that in my entire life! Don't fix that one. Ugh, fine. Let's get back to writing about how great we are.

Power Hour! Open Mic is brought to you by Amy Shanker, Brett Hiker, and Cameron Ford. Originating in Chicago, this mic mixes your hot new bits with some beer and piano. While you're working on getting famous, a designated weekly "drinker" is on stage beside you working on a pitcher or 2 of beer. He or she will occasionally chime in to riff with your set. This is a fun, no-fail mic; if you drop the ball, the drinker will pick it up. And don't worry! At the end of the mic, we'll watch as the drinker attempts to do their set.

From Stevie Wonder's early days as a child prodigy signed by Berry Gordy through classic albums of the '70s and '80s, Papa J. & Mo' Soul pay tribute to this one-of-a-kind artist. You'll hear the unforgettable ballads like "Isn't She Lovely" and soul classics such as "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" that earned Wonder dozens of Grammys, international stardom and a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Wonder is equally at home crooning romantic tunes like "My Cherie Amour" and "I Just Called to Say I Love You" as he is belting out the irresistible funk of "Living for the City" and "Superstition," a versatility that Harlem-based blues/soul band Papa J. & Mo' Soul will recreate for this concert at New York's Club Bonafide.

Three-time "Grammy" nominees and Sony Music Latin artists -NEGRONI's TRIO, is made up of Jose Negroni, Josh Allen and Nomar Negroni; and they are back with their new exciting album "NEW ERA" (Produced by Jose Negroni) that will leave an everlasting mark in the Jazz world. NEGRONI's TRIO has performed all throughout the globe on stages that include many U.S. and international Jazz festivals as well as numerous key Jazz venues throughout the United States, Japan, Spain, Italy, the Caribbean and throughout Latin America. Together with his son and protégé Nomar Negroni, an incredibly talented drummer with precise vigor, a flair for showmanship, and graduate of the Berklee College of Music, and Josh Allen, graduate from the University of Miami's Frost School of Music, a supremely talented bass player providing the drive for the melodies and groove, the NEGRONI's TRIO has been able to mesmerize audiences with their unique brand of jazz that fuses classical and Latin rhythms. NEGRONI's TRiO always seduces and entertains their audiences across the continents by taking musical risks with performance and repertoire, and the result is an array of classic lyricism mixed with innovative and sincere improvisations that quenches their audience's thirst for world class Jazz and beyond.

Daymé Arocena draws inspiration from the intertwining musical legacies of her native Cuba. A singer, composer and choir director, she's a bright-shining performer carrying the flame for a new generation of Cuban musicians. Born and raised in Havana, her conservatory training was combined with an upbringing grounded in Cuba's own musical foundations. She was accepted at the age of nine into one of the country's prestigious music schools and studied a choir-directing course rooted in Western classical tradition. At the same time, she grew up with the day-to-day schooling in folkloric music that's common in most Cuban households. Emerging from a culture where hybrids and amalgamations are the norm, Daymé embraces that reality. At a time when Cuba's border opens up, she is an outward-looking artist finding new musical connections.

Featuring Dax Callner, Terry Shook, Aaron Green, Richie Phillips, Alroy Teves, Michael Villarosa, Alix Briard, and David Kahler. The Dayz is known as one of New York's most exciting, crazy-fun live acts. The band's sound is a mix of rock, funk and jazz, and it's eight members (two vocalists, drums, bass, saxophone, two guitars and keys) put on a romping good show that draws authentic music lovers from New York and beyond.

No Boundaries: Dancing the Visions of Contemporary Black Choreographers - The Billie Holiday Theatre Through April 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

"For over 15 years, Gesel Mason has been performing solos choreographed by prominent African American choreographers. The solos offer windows into the choreographers' lives, illuminating the unique inventions, legacies, and aesthetics of these prominent Black choreographers--including what these artists were up against historically, culturally, and personally. With nine commissioned solos, Gesel Mason's dancing body has become a living archive of over seven decades of choreographic vision that expands the range of work by, for, and about African Americans. In an effort to share and preserve this rich history, No Boundaries is transforming into a digital archive, which will feature interviews, dance-for-camera shorts, and documentation of the selected choreographies. This presentation of No Boundaries at the Billie Holiday Theatre will be "the last live performance" of the project, featuring solos by Gesel Mason, Donald McKayle, David Roussève, Bebe Miller, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Rennie Harris, and a recently commissioned work by Kyle Abraham. Be part of history as this presentation will be documented for inclusion in the archive."

Kathy Acker: 'Boyfriend, Brother, Sister, Money, Amusement, and Father' - Performance Space New York April 07, 2018 - New York

Kathy Acker famously described the father of her main character Janey in Blood and Guts in High School as "boyfriend, brother, sister, money, amusement, and father." Centered on Acker's notorious video with Alan Sondheim, Blue Tape, this screening program examines the urgency with which Acker approached sex, intimacy, relationships and writing in her work. Through this lens we look at clips of Acker reading, performing, and being interviewed from the 1970s to the 1990s—intimate, formal, and unpredictable.

While availability is limited for this performance, secure your seats now to see the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis at their next New York performance, Nursery Song Swing, Mar 9-10. On a few unforgettable occasions, Chick Corea has joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis — a group he calls "the greatest big band on the planet" — to perform transformative new iterations of his music. Now, for the first time, they're joining forces to explore the work of another master pianist and composer: Thelonious Monk, the high priest of modern music. Corea has provided the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with a list of his favorite Monk compositions, and the band's brilliant arrangers have crafted inspired new versions of these classics. With complex yet always-swinging rhythms, poetic and beautiful harmonic progressions, and iconoclastic, tuneful melodies, Monk's compositions lend themselves to endless adaptation. The ensemble sections of these new arrangements and Chick Corea's masterful, original take on Monk's harmonies will demonstrate why this repertoire is a definitive platform for thoughtful improvisation and high quality jazz.

Culture and Its Discontents: A Public Conversation - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Through April 07, 2018 - New York

In response to vociferous cultural debates that have engulfed the Guggenheim Museum and other U.S. museums during the past year with in-person and online protests, the Guggenheim presents two days of public programming to examine the causes and effects of this growing phenomenon. “Culture and Its Discontents” brings together prominent scholars and thought leaders to discuss the widening ideological divides in the United States, the impact of the digital sphere on public protest, and the role of museums as open spaces for the exchange of ideas. Friday, April 6, 6:30 pm: Keynote Conversation with Sally Kohn, author of The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity A keynote conversation featuring Sally Kohn, a progressive political commentator and author of the forthcoming book The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity.

Kohn will consider why hate is so prevalent in contemporary society, how it can be mitigated, and how seemingly intractable political differences can be bridged through civil engagement. Saturday, April 7, 2:30 pm: Panel Discussions Moderated by WNYC Radio’s Brian Lehrer Addressing “Contemporary Culture Wars” and “Outrage Activism” “Contemporary Culture Wars, ” begins at 3 pm and features speakers Kurt Bardella, columnist for HuffPost, USA Today, and NBC THINK, and former spokesperson for Breitbart, Representative Darrell Issa, and Senator Olympia Snowe; Jehmu Greene, television commentator, social justice champion, and Distinguished Fellow at Barnard College’s Athena Center for Leadership; Angela Nagle, contributing writer for The Baffler and author of Kill All Normies: Online Culture Wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the Alt-Right; and Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director, PEN America, who will look at the issues shaping cultural, social, and political polarization across U.S. campuses, media, and cultural institutions today. They will explore how museums can balance the inherent conflicts between free expression and hate speech, and creative provocation and moral righteousness. “Outrage Activism,” begins at 4:30 pm and will include Danielle Citron, author of Hate Crimes in Cyberspace and Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law; and Molly Crockett, Yale University Assistant Professor of Psychology and neuroscientist; in discussion about the ways the digital revolution has altered the nature of popular protest and how progressive institutions can manage conversations around political and social justice issues when faced with digital swarming, fake news and mistruth.

'That class of people called Low Dutch,' African Enslavement Among the Dutch Reformed Churches of Ulster County and New Jersey's Raritan Valley - Historic Huguenot Street April 07, 2018 - New Paltz,

Time TBD Drawing upon a variety of resources from research facilities in Ulster County and New Brunswick, NJ, Wendy E. Harris and Helene van Rossum will discuss aspects of African enslavement among the Dutch Reformed congregations of Marbletown, Rochester, Wawarsing, and Shawangunk, churches with historic ties to congregations in New Paltz and Kingston. In her memoirs, Sojourner Truth referred to the Dutch communities in Ulster county—to whom her first owner, Colonel Johannes Hardenbergh belonged—as "that class of people called Low Dutch." The speakers will highlight enslavement among the powerful Hardenbergh family, as well as connections between Dutch Reformed congregations in Ulster County and those in Central New Jersey's Raritan Valley, traceable through the ministries of Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen (1691–1747), Johannes Frelinghuysen (1727–1754), and Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh (1736–1790), the first president of Queen's College (presently Rutgers University). Wendy E. Harris is an Ulster-born archaeologist and historic preservation consultant. In 2002 she and fellow archaeologist Arnold Pickman formed Cragsmoor Consultants. Unexpected findings from recent projects conducted for the Cragsmoor Conservancy, the Cragsmoor Historical Society and the Village of Ellenville/Town of Wawarsing Joint Historic Preservation Commission led to Harris's current interest in the history of African enslavement in what were once the Ulster County hinterlands. In June 2016 she and Pickman presented a joint talk at the Cragsmoor Historical Society entitled "Where Slavery Died Hard, The Forgotten History of Ulster County and the Shawangunk Mountains Region."

Nashville, TN - Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Sunny Sweeney will release her fourth album Trophy on March 10th via Thirty Tigers. Trophy, featuring the young troubadour's most serious set of songs, offers a new side of Sunny Sweeney. Rootsy and real, Trophy showcases Sweeney's maturation as a songwriter and as an artistgrowing into her own. Trophy is the follow-up to Provoked (2014), which offered a glimpse into where Sweeney was headed. Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, No Depression, The Washington Post and Elle are just a handful of the outlets that supported Sweeney's direction. NPR's All Things Considered said, "Sunny Sweeney has all the right stuff for country stardom - a Texas pedigree, a heart-melting voice, stunning looks and the ability to seem both tough and vulnerable". On Concrete, her 2011 major label release, Sweeney became the first female artist to reach the Top 10 on the country radio charts in over a decade. Sweeney has never been afraid to write about personal experiences, her unapologetic honesty and revealing vulnerability shows her as an artist who is equally as tough as she is tender. On Trophy it's clear that she's in a positive place, however the variety of songs on the album take listeners on an emotional rollercoaster. On the gorgeous "Grow Old With Me" and "Nothing Wrong With Texas", Sweeney taps into the themes of love and sense of place. A highlight of the album, "Bottle By My Bed" is a heartwrenching song expressing the sadness and frustration of not having a child. Though she didn't set out to, Sweeney co-wrote the majority of Trophy with female writers, including four songs with Grammy Award-winning songwriter Lori McKenna. Her resulting songs capture the feminine experience with a combination of nuance, humor and accuracy only possible from the perspective of Sweeney and her collaborators. Trophy was produced by Grammy-nominated engineer/producer Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark's 12 Stories). Sunny Sweeney has straddled the line between country and Americana for years. Trophy represents an artist confident in what she has to say and grateful to be able to say it. On Trophy, it's official that Sunny Sweeney has found her voice.

Lots of folks throw around the phrase "let the music do the talking," but only a few have the fortitude to really do it - to just go out there and play, shunning flash, shrugging off image and reeling in the listener on the strength of the songs alone. Johnny A. is that kind of performer. For the better part of three decades, the Massachusetts-based guitarist and bandleader has proven himself capable of generating heat at venues from working-class bars to international amphitheaters - and every sort of venue in between. And when the house lights are turned up, he's just as adept at captivating serious students of the six-string with a virtuosity that earned him the rare honor of having his name placed on a signature Gibson(r) guitar.

The story of Public Access TV seems like it was written for an episode of Behind The Music. A group of friends drop out of high school and catch a New York City bound bus with dreams of starting a band. What follows is a frenzy of press hype, label bidding wars, a critically-acclaimed debut album, sold-out tours, and festival slots around the world. But as all viewers of any music doc surely know, there is always a darker side to the story, and PATV is no exception. Addiction, recovery programs, public brawls (mostly with one-another), a devastating explosion that destroyed all their earthly possessions, and a car crash behind the wheel of an 80's convertible...a lifetime packed into one-album cycle. Now for part two, Public Access TV's sophomore album: Street Safari. The band, comprised of front man and lead-singer John Eatherly, Xan Aird, Max Peebles, and Pete Star, entered the studio to record the new album in fall 2017 with Producer Patrick Wimberly (Beyonce, MGMT, Chairlift) armed with a plethora of songs they'd written documenting the tumultuous last few years of their lives. The first single "Metrotech" previews the more expansive palette the band is working with on their new album.

When aspiring filmmaker David is mandated by a judge to attend a social program at the Jewish Community Center, he is sure of one thing: he doesn't belong there. But when he's assigned to visit the Brooklyn Bridge with the vivacious Sarah, sparks fly and his convictions are tested.

Under the direction of choreographer Brinda Guha, urbanJATRA fuses the dynamic movement of Classical Indian dance and Contemporary world music and dance forms. With urbanJATRA, Kalamandir Dance Company explores a circular and immersive sensibility with an original storyline, creating a new paradigm that delves into free choice, true fate and personal devotion: all common themes understood in the world of Classical Indian performing arts "Needing what feels like space we can't see, energy we can't feel, and time we don't have, we use our third eye to create outcomes worthy of our own desires, manifesting a path directed towards possibilities of our unrealized dreams. It is also a reflection back to the birth and to-date progress of the Contemporary Indian vocabulary of movement through the lens of my personal experience as a second-generation Indian American. The goal is to plant seeds of the past: acknowledging what came before in order to see clearly about the potential of the future," says Brinda Guha. Featuring 18 diverse NYC dance artists and interdisciplinary visual/audio arts (photography by Francisco Guijarro, live painting by Zac Crawford, audio by TEDxCreativeCoast speaker Kolby Harrell, poet Suheir Hammad, and original writing by Brinda Guha), this new work reveals individual journeys toward ultimate goals, which inevitably change as our lives progress.

Ethel, the String Quartet Redefining Concert Music, Continues Popular Met Museum Concert Series - Metropolitan Museum of Art April 07, 2018 - Upper East Side

Since 2012, ETHEL, the acclaimed string quartet that Pitchfork.com described as "a necessary jet of cold water in the contemporary classical scene," has been serving as resident ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar. Marking the first time that a prominent musical group has been featured in that venue, ETHEL will performs there on a regular basis, sometimes with friends and collaborators, throughout the year. To enliven the Balcony Bar programming, the quartet also selects musical groups from ETHEL's expansive list of notable colleagues to perform when the group is on the road. This new programming initiative provides a variety of musical experiences to Met audiences delivered by a range of ensemble types and compositions. The Balcony Bar serves appetizers and cocktails on the second floor balcony overlooking the Great Hall. The performances, consisting of three sets between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m., are free with Museum admission. ETHEL + Friends @ Met Museum Performances at a Glance January 26-27 Loggins-Gookin Duo February 2-3 | Mivos Quartet February 9-10 | Laurence Hobgood Trio February 16-17 ETHEL February 23-24 ETHEL About ETHEL ETHEL was established in New York City in 1998, quickly earning a reputation as one of America's most adventurous string quartets—heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet and Soldier String Quartet, and part of a generation of young artists blending uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing—by playing with the intensity and accoutrements of a rock band. The New York Times has described them as "indefatigable and eclectic," and The New Yorker has deemed them "vital and brilliant." Nearly two decades into their singular career, ETHEL has in turn become seminal in its own right, a path-breaker for countless new genre-spanning ensembles, and a prolific commissioner of new music. At the heart of ETHEL is a collaborative ethos—a quest for a common creative expression that is forged in the celebration of community. The quartet creates and tours rich, often multimedia, productions including the evening-length ETHEL's Documerica, inspired by the tens of thousands of images shot as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's decade-long Project Documerica, launched in 1971; The River, a collaboration with Taos Pueblo flutist Robert Mirabal (album released June 2016); the introspective Grace, featuring ETHEL's arrangements of music by Ennio Morricone and Jeff Buckley; and Blue Dress, which pays homage to women making their musical mark on the 21st century. ETHEL has collaborated with artists including David Byrne, Bang on a Can All Stars, Kaki King, Todd Rundgren, Joe Jackson, Ursula Oppens, Juana Molina, Tom Verlaine, STEW, Andrew Bird, Thomas Dolby, Jeff Peterson, Laurence Hobgood, Jake Shimabukuro and Vijay Iyer. ETHEL's self-titled debut album was a Billboard "Best Recording of '03." Light ranked #3 on Amazon.com's "Best of '06." Oshtali: Music for String Quartet, '10, is the first commercial recording of American Indian student works, and Heavy, '12, was a Q-2 "Album of the Week."

NYU Skirball will present the U.S. premiere of Dictatorship of Coolness, a raucous and provocative social satire reflecting on greed, art and culture, presented by Chile’s Teatro La Re-Sentida, running April 6 and 7 at 7:30 pm at NYU Skirball. The Dictatorship of Coolness, performed in Spanish with supertitles, is a bitingly funny look at today’s culture of misinformation, consumerism, and greed, inspired by Moliere´s The Misanthrope. It is an amplified, monstrous photograph of ourselves and this seductive and indolent era that allows us to “resist” through consumerism, from the comfort of our own homes. The show is set on the 1st of May, as Santiago’s cultural and artistically elite gather to celebrate the new Minister of Culture. As the streets pulse with ambiance of protest, the Minister realizes the hypocrisy and inefficiency of bourgeois culture and renounces capitalism and greed, turning the celebration into a nightmare. La Re-sentida (The Resentful), making its U.S. debut, is a collective of young activists and artists from the Chilean national theatrical scene who regard theater as a critical instrument with major political responsibility. Their work embodies the pulses, visions and ideas of their generation and assumes as duty, audacity, the desecration of taboos and reflection generated from provocation. Their works give theatrical creation great political responsibility, understanding it as an instrument of critique, reflection and construction. Their works have been performed in more than 17 countries. teatrolaresentida.cl 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.

Formed in England in 1991, CRADLE OF FILTH generated an immediate underground buzz with their early demos, before stamping their authority on the UK's burgeoning black and death metal underground with their debut album, »The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh«, in 1994. A monstrous blend of ornamental terror and pummeling vitriol, it marked the band out as a unique proposition and one of few modern bands capable of driving heavy music forward while honoring its traditions. Not surprisingly, a combination of frontman Dani Filth's insanely evocative lyrics and the intensely detailed and the compelling imagery that the band harnessed with great skill have since ensured that CRADLE's music has both endured and expanded over the best part of three decades. A relentless series of invigorating and enthralling studio albums have kept the band firmly in the bloodshot public eye and despite numerous line-up shuffles and subtle stylistic shifts over the years, CRADLE OF FILTH have slithered from grand triumph to grand triumph.

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.

John Scofield delves into yet another conceptual territory, bringing his lifelong love of American Country music out of his toolbox to share with his jazz audiences with Country For Old Men. On this new album, Scofield interprets classic country melodies, performing with several of his closest musical associates from the jazz community — Steve Swallow, Bill Stewart and Larry Goldings. In Scofield's words, "We're going to turn 'outlaw' country tunes into jazz vehicles. Rather than go to Nashville and record with 'real' country players in a country style, I'm joining forces with my jazz cronies to play the songs with our jazz approach. We improvise while keeping the integrity, character and twang of this wonderful American music. I've always loved Country music and am super excited to put my treatment of them into play." Scofield and company will sculpt jazz renditions of classic tunes by George Jones, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Patti Page, and even Shania Twain – just to name a few!

Pound for pound, Brad Williams is the funniest comedian in the country right now and has become one of the most in-demand comedians working today. A California native, Williams started doing stand-up comedy as a teenager and has been touring successfully ever since, routinely selling out shows all over the country and the world. Williams has parlayed that success into a multitude of stand-up television experiences, including Live at Gotham, The Tonight Show, Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Most recently, his first one-hour special, Fun Size, was the highest rated on Showtime, and a year later, he followed that up with his second special, Daddy Issues, which was more successful than the first and prompted The New York Times to write “No one is doing it [stand-up comedy] more hilariously than Brad Williams.” His third special in three years was an uproarious one, hosting some of the edgiest comedians in the country from the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. Also an accomplished actor, Williams has appeared on numerous TV shows and feature films, including FX’s Legit, Sam and Cat, Mind of Mencia, Pitboss, a recurring role on the Hulu original show Deadbeat, and memorable roles in a plethora of movies, including Little Evil, which was produced by Scott Stuber (Ted), as well as the Netflix original Christopher Guest film, Mascots. In addition to stand-up and acting, Williams has become a dynamic on-air personality as well. His podcast with Adam Ray, About Last Night, is a mainstay on the iTunes charts. He is also a regular contributor on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean Show in Los Angeles, as well as Adam Carolla’s podcast, The Adam Carolla Show. Williams’ ability to make humorous and inspiring observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are consistently winning over audiences and proving anyone can overcome their shortcomings. His live performances are always high energy and frequently feature full standing ovations from those in attendance, which prompted the late Robin Williams to call him “Prozac with a head.” Showtimes: Fri. & Sat. 8:00PM & 10:00PM / Sun. 8:00PM

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.

Now in his seventh decade of jazz performance, the sound of Randy Weston continues to inform and inspire: Few other jazz artists have so effectively incorporated the vast rhythmic heritage of Africa into their music. This week, the great pianist will pilot the well-oiled music machine he calls the African Rhythms Quintet, featuring alto saxophonist TK Blue and trombonist Robert Trowers (who replaced longtime ARQ member Benny Powell after Powell's death in 2010 at age 80.) "Weston has the biggest sound of any jazz pianist since Ellington and Monk, as well as the richest and most inventive beat, but his art is more than projection and time; it's the result of a stu­dious and inspired intelligence...an intelligence that is creating a fresh synthesis of African elements with jazz technique." (Stanley Crouch, Village Voice) Billy Harper – tenor saxophone Randy Weston – piano Alex Blake – bass Neil Clarke – percussion Lewis Nash - drums

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.

Main Street Gallery Presents 'Summit: Diego Garcia' - Main Street Gallery Through April 08, 2018 - Huntington

Diego Garcia, a Long Island born and raised painter, has had a passion for art from an early age. His journey of finding himself artistically began through graffiti and taking honors art classes at Brentwood High School. He started to take his craft seriously around the age of 17 by doing commission work and submitting to group exhibitions. The now 25-year-old finds himself showing his work across Long Island and in numerous venues in New York City. Summit is very special to me. "Since my first solo show in 2015 I have embarked on a journey of self evaluation and growth. My mission to inspire youth and depict emotions comes with strong convictions and certainty. I paint children to help advocate to the viewer a message bigger than myself. Children need to be nurtured and loved, they are the future. As the years have gone by I began to notice that as I advocated this message, the imagery and idea of personifying emotions with these innocent subjects was also me subliminally working on myself. I have painted extroverted emotions and experiences of joy, wonder and exuberance. I have painted introverted emotions and experiences of loneliness, timidness and fear. My insecurity, my confidence, my message all in one. We all can relate to these feelings, both child and adult." – Diego Garcia

A Fábrica De Nada (The Nothing Factory). 2017. Directed By Pedro Pinho - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 08, 2018 - Manhattan

A Fábrica de Nada (The Nothing Factory). 2017. Portugal. Directed by Pedro Pinho. In Portuguese and French; English subtitles. 177 min. New York Premiere A rich and formally surprising film of ideas, beautifully shot on 16mm, and featuring one of recent cinema's most memorable musical numbers, Portuguese director Pedro Pinho's nearly three-hour epic concerns the occupation of an elevator plant by its workers. They are stirred to action when the factory's machinery is removed in the middle of the night by the owners; they rapidly organize, kick out the brass who have arrived offering buyouts, and discuss the feasibility of managing the facility themselves—all the while a Marxist theorist exerts ideological influence from the sidelines. The Nothing Factory is a serious and singular look at the meaning of work today, further developing Pinho's interest in the status of labor amid his country's financial crisis.

Hale County This Morning, This Evening. 2018. Directed By Ramell Ross - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 08, 2018 - Manhattan

Hale County This Morning, This Evening. 2018. USA. Directed by RaMell Ross. 76 min. CLOSING NIGHT New York Premiere "The American stranger knows Blackness as a fact—even though it is fiction," says writer-director RaMell Ross. For his visionary and political debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at Sundance in 2018, Ross spent five years intimately observing African American families living in Hale County, Alabama. It's a region made unforgettable by Walker Evans and James Agee's landmark 1941 photographic essay Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which documented the impoverished lives of white sharecropper families in Alabama's Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. Ross's poetic return to this place shows changed demographics, and depicts people resilient in the face of adversity and invisibility. Hale County This Morning, This Evening introduces a distinct and powerful new voice in American filmmaking.

Nervous Translation. 2018. Directed By Shireen Seno - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 08, 2018 - Manhattan

Nervous Translation. 2018. Philippines. Directed by Shireen Seno. In Filipino; English subtitles. 90 min. North American Premiere Informed by filmmaker Shireen Seno's childhood in the Filipino diaspora and her dual training in film and architecture, this sophomore work is a stylized evocation of a child's fanciful interpretation of the world around her. Eight-year-old Yael, left to her own devices after school, secretly plays and replays audio cassettes her father sends home to her mother while working overseas; pursues happiness as communicated to her via a TV advertisement; and, in fanciful scenes that evoke the work of American artist Laurie Simmons, enters the meditative, immersive world of her dollhouse's kitchen. Seno offers fleeting clues from the late-eighties outside world, hinting at societal turmoil following Ferdinand Marcos's ouster and complicated adult relations, but these never overshadow her film's touching depiction of childhood imagination.

Choreographer, playwright, and dancer Jinah Parker's moving work of dance-theater—"a Choreoplay"—opens up all-too-necessary conversations about sexual trauma, systemic racism, women's healing and ownership of their bodies, and the undoing of rape culture. The show, in development for two years, arrives Off-Broadway just as these crucial conversations about sexual violence have erupted in the American consciousness, as allegations against powerful men have given fire to women and driven the #MeToo movement and the subsequent Time's Up Defense Fund, exposing the extent of the systems that heretofore have silenced and shamed survivors, and providing pathways to justice and accountability. Having played to sold-out audiences at HERE Arts Center in Spring 2017, SHE continues its journey—with a newly revamped script, new cast members, and new direction from Tamilla Woodard—in this moment of reckoning, in telling the stories of survivors and giving voice and body to pain as a step toward liberation, healing, and empowerment.

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.

A high school senior is suspended when he tries to burn an American flag for a school art fair project.

Dr. John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original 'people's poet'. Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today's pop culture. Aside from his trademark 'look' continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 recent global number 1 albums - with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M Album. His latest show, touring across the UK, USA, Canada & Australasia, is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat - a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game. "John Cooper Clarke uses words like Chuck Berry uses guitar riffs melody and anger, humour and disdain in equal measure. He's the real deal, really funny and really caustic, the velvet voice of discontent." - Kate Moss "John Cooper Clarke is one of Britain's outstanding poets. His anarchic punk poetry has thrilled people for decades and his no nonsense approach to his work and life in general has appealed to many people including myself for many years. Long may his slender frame and spiky top produce words and deeds that keep us on our toes and alive to the wonders of the world. Keep rockin' John!" - Sir Paul McCartney

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.

Founded in 1967, the National Chorale is the only professional choral company in the United States to have established and maintained an annual subscription season in the major New York City concert halls - 50 seasons in David Geffen Hall, with additional concerts at Carnegie Hall. 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. In addition to its David Geffen Hall series, the Chorale has toured nationally; presented 19 summer seasons of New York Festival of American Music Theater concerts in Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park and parks throughout the New York area; concert tours of New York State and New York City; vocal-instrumental chamber music series, and Concerts for Young People. 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 Chorale also has a major Partnership with the NYC Professional Performing Arts High School in Manhattan, now in its 8th year, where a team of Chorale artist/teachers lead and develop the PPAS Vocal/Choral Program daily throughout the school year. The PPAS Choir will perform at Lincoln Center at each National Chorale performance during the 2017-2018 Season. Everett McCorvey is in his fourth season as the Artistic Director of the National Chorale. Vocal Excellence is a hallmark of Dr. McCorvey's work with professional choirs and with professional singers in concerts, masterclasses and workshops throughout the world. Over a span of over 35 years, Dr. McCorvey has engaged choirs and audiences on 4 continents in moving and dynamic experiences with his unique and committed interpretation of choral music of all genres. Dr. McCorvey is also the founder and Music Director of the American Spiritual Ensemble, a group of 24 professional singers performing spirituals and other compositions of African-American composers. He is a frequent advisory panelist and on-site reviewer for the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, D.C. and he has served on the Boards of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, National Opera Association and the Kentucky Arts Council. Dr. McCorvey has recently been invited to serve as a jurist on the Opera For All Voices initiative established by San Francisco Opera and Santa Fe 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.

"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 tour introduces visitors to the origins of Impressionism in the late 1860s and its flourishing in the following decades in landscapes and scenes from modern life by such artists as Monet, Degas, and Renoir. The tour also explores the impact of Impressionism on the next generation of artists, which includes Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh.

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.

Bookstein Projects is pleased to announce a group exhibition of paintings and works on paper by the following artists: Stephen Antonakos, Jennifer Bartlett, Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Louis I. Kahn, Jan Müller, Louise Nevelson, James Siena, Joaquín Torres-García, Stanley Whitney and an Anonymous textile by the Kuba peoples, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, or Angola. This exhibition will explore compositional similarities and differences across a group of seemingly disparate artworks. Created by myriad artists who cross geographical location, schools, and generations, this show seeks to demonstrate the ways in which the organizational framework of the grid transcends any particular group of artists or movements and remains, to this day, a source of inspiration and fascination.

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.

Solar-Lunar Transcriptions EXHIBITION BY TINA SELIGMAN - Flushing Town Hall Through April 15, 2018 - Flushing

We are all affected by solar and lunar cycles, yet unaware of their shapes over time. This exhibition by FTH Teaching Artist Tina Seligman explores rhythms and patterns of the sun and moon through visual art, music, and poetry. At a time when the world is so fractured, shared experiences of the sun and moon remind us that we are all profoundly connected through nature.

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.

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.

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 [email protected] 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

The great Baroque painters Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi confess their sins to a heavenly priest in purgatory. Gentileschi recounts her notorious rape and torture in order to reclaim her legacy and fully illuminate her brilliant life and art. Caravaggio, confused after his own brutal and untimely death, is searching for forgiveness -- or possibly something deeper.

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.

C24 Gallery is pleased to present Split Archives, a solo exhibition by artist Viktor Popovi? marking his inaugural exhibition with the gallery, and in the United States. Split Archives brings together over thirty works created in the last three years, which explore the Modernist heritage of former Yugoslavia in the 1960s. Using strategies of appropriation, and the application of archival research methods, Popovi? investigates history and collective social memory through his installations. Split Archives will be on view from March 6 through April 21, 2018 at 560 West 24th Street, with an opening reception on Tuesday, March 6 from 6 – 8 pm. The postwar architecture of former Yugoslavia was a direct response to the demands and influences of it's time. Forward thinking in its approach, modern architectural design not only solved the issue of expansion, but preserved the identity of the area - it provided a way forward. In Split Archives, Popovi? focuses on the city archives of his hometown in Split, Croatia, where the developmental projects became a paradigmatic example of the exceptional urban planning and architectural practices during this time. Through the utilization of found objects and raw industrial materials such as fluorescent light tubes and color correction filters, Popovi?'s hybrid light installations probe the relationship between artwork and object, audience, history, and environment. The artist's interventions on enlarged archival photographs of architectural models (Untitled Archive ST3), and the interiors of the fully realized Military Hospital (Untitled Archive ST3: Military Hospital), re-contextualize the imagery and form a connection between new materials, and the original processes and states of the depicted architecture. The finished artwork questions the position of personal and social memory, in relation to the tradition of socialist, modernist architecture.

George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion tells the story of Professor Henry Higgins and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle.

Casting and design team will be announced in the coming months.

Sara Hastings is an unmarried lawyer in her mid-thirties, much too busy to get involved in romance. Her Aunt Martha has decided to take matters into her own hands and find her a husband. Unfortunately, Aunt Martha's method of doing it amounts to having the prospective groom bopped over the head and brought to Sara's apartment. Aunt Martha's choice is Brandon Cates, a young man who handles Aunt Martha's finances. Although Brandon is engaged to be married, this does not deter Aunt Mart...

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 Drawing Center will commission a new project by Argentinian artist Eduardo Navarro for The Lab. For this project, Navarro will produce a series of edible drawings, entitled Into our cells, which will be drawn with edible ink on edible paper with frames made of bread and sugar glass. In a closing feast, the audience will participate in Navarro's project by consuming the drawings. This project stems from Navarro's interest in quantum physics, specifically the "holographic principle," which describes how matter is scrambled and not destroyed in a black hole. Into our cells will explore how the consumption of a series of drawings can serve as a new mode of contemplation and create a situation in which our understanding of aesthetics bypasses the primacy of the eye and the visual. Through this commission, Navarro is interested in addressing the following questions: What would happen if one ate a drawing? Could our metabolism truly destroy this image? Would this drawing transform into fat, slowly become energy over time, and translate into action back in the world? Or, would the image become a ghost that inhabits the body like a house?

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).

This Klezmer-folk music-theater hybrid starring genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. It's about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It's about refugees who get out before it's too late, and those who get out after it's too late. And it's about looking into the eyes of God.

A saucy and sparkling battle of wits. Love and victory are in the air at the start of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. When Claudio, a young gentleman and soldier, swears his love to the charming Hero -- Signor Benedick, a bachelor, swears by his beard that he will never marry. Little does Benedick know that he may have, at last, met his match in Hero’s erce-witted cousin, Beatrice. And little does the town of Messina know that it is about to be rocked by a scandal that will take a miracle to put right. Titan Co-founders and real-life husband and wife team, Lenny Banovez and Laura Frye, take on Shakespeare’s spirited, sparring duo in Much Ado About Nothing.

This "vibrant, funny, and a little dangerous" (Chicago Tribune) theatrical event follows 16-year-old Bernadette, an aspiring young short story writer as she journeys through New York City and teeters on the verge of adulthood.

"'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.

His diverse subject matter, ranging from portraits and landscapes to probing examinations of masculinity and personal identity, remains consistently intimate, characterized by a subversive perspective and eccentric wit. Though Woodman has been an engrained figure in the international art world for decades, the artist has chosen to remain at the margins, living and working primarily in the American Southwest. Regarding this tendency, Woodman says, "For most of my career, New Mexico has provided me with a respite from some of the unbearable excesses of civilization. I have chosen to stay out of the limelight in order to preserve the freedom to pursue my personal vision." Aptly, Horizons is an exhibition of large-scale photographic prints capturing the vastness of the American Southwestern landscape. Focusing on the dramatic play of light on the horizon, Woodman's recent works posit the desert as a sanctuary. His reverence for the landscape is evidenced in these rich, lush photographs that highlight the unique and fragile ecology and question notions of limitless natural resources and boundless frontiers.

The paintings of American Inter-Dimensional Visionary artist Olivia Kapoor offer ethereal meditations on the nature of time and emotion interpreted through color, geometry, and texture. Working predominantly in acrylic, oil, and pastel, the artist constructs highly saturated canvases that defy traditional, realist expressions of color. Her overall oeuvre blends contemporary painting techniques with the style of Surrealist and Impressionist masters such as Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet. Kapoor describes her technique as "relaxed and meditative." She explains: "My state of mind and how I feel emotionally contribute greatly to the work itself, how it comes together, and how long it takes.... The great thing about the end result is that it is able to speak for itself, tell a story, communicate something to the viewer." The artist's compelling juxtapositions of pattern and texture are at once immersive and dynamic, thus inviting the viewer into the continuously evolving, dream-like world Kapoor cultivates through paint.

Miguel A. Chavez | Ali Cockburn | Ana Dávila | Barbara Demsar | Marianne Durach | Manuel Jiménez Palma | Olivia Kapoor | Sergey Klychkov | Alexander Ossipov (TOTUR) | Matus Prochaczka (WEKOWORKS) | Stefano Sanna | Gordana Tomic | Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer | Donald Woodman

Ana Dávila's lyrical paintings are as laden with personal expression and artistic freedom as they are striking in visual content. Working in mixed media on canvas, Dávila layers abstract, organic brushstrokes and a wide variation of materials in a seemingly endless manner that imbues each work with its own individuality and personality; throughout Dávila's practice, no two works are alike. In works such as Orgasm (2017), spongy droplets of bright yellow, green, and cobalt blue in the background of the composition are sharply interrupted by gritty, textured swaths of vivid crimson that dominates the foreground and upper right quadrant of the painting. Dávila's emphasis on contrasting tones and textures are at once highly emotive and reflective of the ever- changing nature of the human experience. In works such as Yeesss!!! (2017), background layers of bright red are sharply interrupted by energetic droplets, swaths, stamps, and drips of sky blue, cream, and black. Each indiscriminate splash of paint appears to engage in frenzied conversations with one another, thus commanding a life of its own.

Sergey Klychkov's paintings are both whimsical and profound, studious and spontaneous. Focusing mainly on portraiture, Klychkov is especially skilled at delineating the expressive details of the human face. While preferencing fine art over illustration, his paintings nevertheless suggest narratives. This comes most to light when his work portrays cartoonishly mismatched juxtapositions of phenomena in fantastical landscapes, implying roots in a highly-developed fictional history. In The Moons (2015), Klychkov's use of oil paints lends his subject a folkloric aspect. Portraying a lunar fantasia, two female nudes are seated atop the roofs of houses, while two more fly in air. A fifth female figure rides on a purple horse through in the center of the scene. The warped spatial distortion of the figures' limbs, as well as the houses, give the image a dionysian feel, while Klychkov's color palette blankets this energy in an ashen-hued tranquility. While verging on the illustrative, the viewer can only imagine the backstory behind such a work. Taken in by the almost littoral calm of the painting, the viewer might feel caught up in the same insouciance with which the two women loll on a nightime roof.

Spanish artist Manuel Jiménez Palma uses pastels to capture quotidian scenes, imbuing the ordinary with uninhibited emotional affect. He utilizes a high-keyed, exaggerated palette and emphasizes mark making over realism, giving his works a sense of spontaneity. Drawing directly onto paper without sketching, Palma manipulates the shapes and colors in his compositions to create entirely subjective scenes that challenge perception. In works such as Beers in Andalusia., Palma images the aftermath of a small gathering, the intense red, ochre, violet, and aqua palette mirroring the exuberance of the artist. Meanwhile, Sleeping in the Yard., captures the attitude of a languid, napping cat, its surrounds transformed into a highly patterned and richly decorative abstraction. In Roofs of Seville., Palma renders the Spanish town's skyline in pared down shapes of bold, unmodulated color, his confident mark making and vibrant palette indicating the energy of the bustling town. In each work, Palma utilizes the emotionality of brilliant color to suffuse conventional scenes with radical subjectivity.

In her playful abstract landscapes, Barbara Demsar paints the natural world with a vivid, childlike optimism. Harmonious, bright, and airy, her lemon yellow and eggshell compositions are littered with delicate doodles, dots of pigment, and whimsical, collaged shapes. These distinctive narratives reflect the artist's perception of the real world; her subjective philosophies are expressed via a unique and joyful pictorial language. Demsar's melodious landscapes share a roster of recurring symbols. In addition to thin loops and sinuous lines, tiny infinity symbols, three point crowns, and hollow half rings appear throughout her works, lending a sense of connectedness to each buoyant composition. Furthermore, Landscape and Good Morning Sun each feature markers of a horizon line and a sun, as well as various other duplicated visual signifiers that remain mysterious. There Somewhere is a hazier composition featuring small clusters of evocative shapes atop a subtly printed background. Finally, Here and Now utilizes an all over composition, and bright red flecks and dabs of paint punctuate the golden, textured background.

Gordana Tomic's large-scale, abstract works are at once energetic, gestural, and profound in meaning. Working in predominantly acrylic, oil, and mixed media on canvas, Tomic utilizes a monochrome palette and an abstract expressionist gesture that transcribes raw, unsullied emotion into highly saturated and autographically textured compositions. Upon first glance, the majority of Tomic's oeuvre appears altogether abstract; however, in many of her works, the artist adroitly conceals figurative elements within an all-over composition brimming with color and texture. In works such as Poseidon Palette (2017), layered tones of navy, cobalt blue, and white writhe, splash, and churn at the upper register of the composition, cascading downwards in weighty, vertical drips of pigment. In the center of the canvas, Poseidon's trident is faintly visible, seamlessly blended with its abstract surroundings. Inspired by her Mediterranean background, Tomic explains: "I truly believe that all the seas are mine, like I named my latest exhibition. I have a purpose in this Universe to try many techniques, to touch every emotion and bring it to the canvas as it is, as it should be, as I read it and feel it." The artist currently resides in Belgrade, Serbia.

Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer's abstract canvases translate the natural landscape of her environment into cheerful explorations of both texture and color. Wöllmer often combines materials such as baked dry pigment, sand, and chalk with acrylic paint that imbues her paintings with autographic tactility. Works such as Dark and Light (2012) marry contrasting earth tones with grainy surfaces that evoke the tranquility of the artist's surroundings. Although abstract, the artist incorporates organic shapes and coarse lines within her works that recall elements of nature, such as tree branches and coastal grasslands. In works such as Hoffnung (2009), bright swaths of neon pink, violet, forest green and turquoise are indiscriminately placed against a deep charcoal background. Although Wöllmer places each color in independent regions of the canvas, each tone emanates a lyrical tension, as if the colors were engaging in a symphonic conversation. Wöllmer gleans much of her inspiration from music, as well as the process of her practice. She explains: "The process of painting empowers me, and I sense this feeling is also conveyed to viewers who seem moved by my work."

Matus Prochaczka creates vivid renderings of futuristic automobiles in his works that blend digital art and traditional painting techniques. Using acrylic sprays, acrylic paint, and a palette knife, the artist embellishes his digitally printed inventions with painterly streaks and smears that evoke speed. Modeled on sophisticate computer software, the metallic cars have razor sharp edges and finely wrought details, but it is the artist's hand that injects the works with dynamism. Prochaczka's 14_Fernando Alonso at Virtual Track features a slick Formula One racer whirring through space. Though the artist designs the cars himself, he maintains the logos and sponsors seen on typical Formula One cars in order to evoke the mix of fanaticism and nostalgia associated with the sport. 33_Max Verstappen Night Race depicts a space age car that is almost completely abstracted, blurred nearly beyond recognition by threateningly fast speeds. Speed is further emphasized with strong strokes of acrylics and spray paint in the artist's most recent work, 29_Alonso INDY500, a digital print with the glimpse of a driver in a split second as he races along the Indianapolis 500 track.

Miguel A. Chavez's calming paintings invite his audience to consider the bucolic beauty within the everyday experience. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, the majority of Chavez's oeuvre encompasses highly detailed renderings of neighborhood facades executed with softly textured brushstrokes and compositional clarity. In works such as San Diego House, white stucco bungalows thatched with terra-cotta roof tiles and turquoise wooden shutters lay nestled within Californian eucalyptus and palm trees. In Colorado House History Museum, a large log cabin, its edges lined with a white wooden trim, peers bashfully towards the audience amidst a curtain of Coloradan tree leaves, standing upon a carpet of clay and stone. Born and raised in Córdoba, Argentina, Chavez has traveled to and lived within areas of Mexico and Canada; the artist's Latin heritage emanates throughout his illustrious oeuvre. Chavez's works have been displayed in a multitude of private collections and institutions in cities across the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, and throughout the continent of Europe. The artist currently resides in San Diego, California.

Alexander Ossipov (TOTUR) creates dense and detailed oil paintings combining myth and memory, earthly and divine. The artist distorts and stylizes his subjects, paring them down to geometric forms and blocks of color. Allegorical figures and animals are fractured and reassembled in shallow compositions, the pigmented planes and facets flattened onto the picture plane. In Ossipov's The Abduction of Europe, a nude female figure and a bull's head share a cosmic space. Without a horizon, the two float in an uncomfortable space, the floundering, twisted body reaching in vain for the animal. The Trinity. Guests features three figures that allude to the holy trinity. Dressed in abstracted and heavily patterned robes with Byzantine halos of light radiating from their heads, the three holy figures take on the appearance of stained glass. Finally, Ossipov's The Two Moons depicts an allegorical horned figure alongside an unidentified anthropomorphic shape, each patterned with stripes of earthy color. In the background, two turquoise and brick red orbs slice across a black ground, creating a sense of dueling opposition.

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Heaven and Earth, featuring the works of Miguel A. Chavez, Ali Cockburn, Ana Dávila, Manuel Jiménez Palma, Barbara Demsar, Marianne Durach, Olivia Kapoor, Sergey Klychkov, Alexander Ossipov, Matus Prochaczka, Stefano Sanna, Gordana Tomic, Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer, and Donald Woodman. The fourteen artists in this exhibition imbue their respective practices into a collective exploration of the transcendent beauty within both the quotidian and the sublime. Buoyant dockside scenes and sanguine paintings of storefront facades are juxtaposed with whimsical dreamscapes, expressive, abstract compositions, and ethereal photographs of the world we currently inhabit. Traditional and contemporary conventions coalesce in this exhibition as each individual artist utilizes a variety of mediums, including but not limited to acrylic and oil on canvas, mixed media on paper, collage, digital prints, and photography. Heaven and Earth invites the viewer to examine an invigorating marriage of the everyday, the celestial, and the stasis between. Heaven and Earth will open on April 5th, 2018, with an opening reception on April 5th from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain open until April 25th.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College is thrilled to announce a series of seven performances at the Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn as part of its 2017-18 season. Brooklyn Center will announce additional performances in the fall in conjunction with the opening of the new Leonard and Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College.   "We are thrilled to continue our commitment to presenting world-class artists to the diverse communities of  Brooklyn," said Jon Yanofsky, the Director of Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts. "Since our home base of Whitman Theatre will be closed for twelve months for much-needed structural repairs, the upcoming season will be presented in two alternative spaces, allowing us the opportunity to share more intimate arts experiences with our audience." The season opens on October 21, 2017 with the Tierney Sutton Band, presenting their 2017 GRAMMY® Award-nominated project The Sting Variations. Praised by The New York Times as "a pure jazz spirit," Ms. Sutton and her trio give fresh jazz interpretations to the repertoire of rock icon, Sting. Other jazz performances in the Kumble season include NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron (February 24, 2018), stepping away from his trio to present an evening of solo piano, and Brooklyn's own Alicia Olatuja (March 10, 2018), who first received national recognition for her soaring solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama's second inauguration. Actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty will revive his one-man-show Emergency during Black History Month (February 17-18, 2018), in which he portrays more than 40 characters.

Award-winning actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty portrays more than 40 characters in this solo theatrical tour-de-force as he explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. Through the characters' various testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves an intricately woven, witty, and moving commentary on modern African American life."We can overcome if we change the way we see, see ourselves, see our past, see our possibility."- Daniel Beaty from Emergency   Kenny Barron (solo piano) Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 8pm, $35 Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn Praised by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the top jazz pianists in the world," NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron has an unmatched elegance, melodic sensibility, and rhythmic mastery.

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.

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.

The Sting takes you back to an era when the blues reigns, the stakes are high, and the dice are always loaded.

It is thrilling to hear such big music in a small room: the audience immerses itself in this complex, highly emotional music to a degree that is impossible in a concert hall or festival stadium."

Daisy Desrosiers is an independent curator and researcher based in Montreal. From 2012 to 2017, she was the Director of Battat Contemporary in Montreal. During that time, she worked with numerous contemporary Canadian artists, supporting and promoting their work and career nationally and abroad.

She is currently pursuing research on the cultural and material implications of the use of sugar in contemporary art and aims to investigate the material and cultural issues in three artworks: Untitled (lover boys) (1991) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Oil and Sugar #2(2007) by Kader Attila and A subtlety or the Marvellous Sugar Baby (2014) by Kara Walker. Using cultural theory anchored in postcolonial studies, the project demonstrates how mindful attention to the role of material allows for a broader understanding of cultural tensions—of which it is both the witness and the result.

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.

The Guggenheim presents the first comprehensive survey in the United States of Danh Vo, a Danish artist living in Berlin whose family fled his native Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975 before eventually settling in Denmark. Over the past 15 years, Vo has assembled an ambitious body of work that examines the intersections of power, history and identity.

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.

Vestiges & Verse: Notes from the Newfangled Epic unites more than two hundred and fifty works by twenty-one seminal and recently discovered self-taught artists, who will be introduced for the first time through the examination of the idiosyncratic structures of their lifelong, intricate narratives—notably, their sequential and developing aspects.

The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter - American Museum of Natural History Through May 28, 2018 - Upper West Side

The butterflies are back! For the 20th year, families can hang with as many as 500 fluttering butterflies at the museum's 80-degree warm vivarium full of tropical flowers too. The insects come from farms in Australia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Florida, Kenya, Malaysia, and Thailand and species include iridescent blue morpho butterflies, scarlet swallowtails, large owl butterflies, and green birdwings.

Join this weekly singalong with Hopalong Andrew, a New York City-born singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A fixture of the New York City family music scene, he regularly appears at curated events such as Summerstage NYC, Bryant Park, Hudson Park, The Oldtone Roots Music Festival, The Brooklyn Public Library, and more.

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. Pandiscio Green is the designer of the exhibition and catalogue for "Towards Catastrophe," and can also be credited for the inventive installations for the previous two shows in this trilogy.

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.

Unleashing, a site-specific multi-media art exhibition across the hallways of Teachers College - Everett Lounge Teachers College, Columbia University Through May 31, 2018 - New York, NY

Unleashing Opening Reception Thursday, April 5, 6 – 8 p.m., Everett Lounge Teachers College, Columbia University 525 West 120th Street • New York, NY 10027 T: +1 212 678-3461 Unleashing April 1 – May 31, 2018 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily http://unleashing.net and http://unleashing.tc.columbia.edu ____________________________________________________________________________________ Unleashing is a site-specific multi-media art exhibition across the hallways of Teachers College highlighting concepts of the American philosopher Maxine Greene, whose idea of “social imagination” provides the ground for the works on display. Carrying forward the success of Doing and Undergoing on view throughout Teachers College in 2013, Unleashing features the work of 28 international artists, and is accompanied by an audiovideo guide leading visitors to each of the 21 sites of the exhibition, as well as by special public programming, guided tours, a video screening series, and artist talks. The exhibition and its title Unleashing are inspired by Greene’s book Releasing the Imagination, which is driven by a vision of aesthetic education, equality, and social justice. “The role of imagination,” she argues, “is not to resolve, not to point the way, not to improve. It is to awaken, to disclose the ordinarily unseen, unheard, and unexpected.” For Greene, artists, like educators, propose how the world could be other than it is. Drawing on a collaborative model, this exhibition puts forward an ethics of inclusion, one that is in dialogue with its built and natural environment, the diverse communities of students, teachers, staff and community members that traverse through or pass by the building daily. Unleashing is driven by the idea of responding to a particular space, Teachers College–a complex of interconnected buildings whose eclectic architecture and spatial politics serve as an evocative testimony to how education and society have changed over time. The building, as the gravitas of this exhibition, serves as an ethical reminder, to paraphrase renowned architect Mark Foster Cage, of the things that are greater than us. Through an emphasis on process at the core of Unleashing, we seek to consider the place of education and knowledge production. As a structured form of transmitting knowledge, education is informed by the current ideals and perceived accomplishments of society and humanity more broadly. The fallibility of these assumptions--one that is integral to any form of knowledge--is always potentially transmitted, too, thus making the possibility of failure part and parcel of education itself. Taking our cue from Maxine Greene, Unleashing looks at positions taken by artists who are willing to unlearn what were made norms before them and develop their own artistic language and research based on possibilities that they create, thus participating in knowledge production processes to imagine new prospects and redefining that which is humanly possible. The exhibition includes works by Fanny Allie, Nadav Assor, Brandy Bajalia, Burcak Bingol, Jean Marie Casbarian, Gregory Climer, Steffani Jemison, Ebru Kurbak, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Elisabeth Molin, Yasmin Jahan Nupur, Jacob Olmedo, Bernd Oppl, ?ener Ozmen, Rafael Pagatini, Rit Premnath and Avi Alpert, Macon Reed, Saša Tka?enko, Hurmat Ul Ain and Rabbya Naseer, Jaret Vadera, Marion Wilson and Cathy Lebowitz, as well as Caroline Woolard and Jeff Warren. The exhibition is accompanied by the Unleashing ScreenSaver Project by (c) merry and a commissioned video work by Chelsea Knight guides visitors throughout the building. Unleashing is directed by Richard Jochum and curated by Livia Alexander and I??n Onol. The project is made possible by the Office of the Provost and the Art & Art Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University. The exhibition will be on display from April 1 – May 31, 2018, at 525 West 120th Street, New York, NY 10027. A public reception will be held on April 5, 2018, from 6 – 8 p.m., in the Everett Lounge. Video works by Sasha Litvintseva, Shelly Silver, Sille Storihle and Jumana Manna, as well as Saša Tka?enko will screen in the Media Services Lounge on select days. Guided tours will be offered throughout.

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. Still, he shared De Chirico's Surreal aesthetic and haunting subject matter, though not his classical precision. Instead, Savinio opted for a combination of softer contours and brushwork that, in something of a supreme irony, became the template for Chirico's late work.

Eóin Francis McCormack is blazing a trail in Dublin with his bold and vibrant abstract artwork. With innovative techniques and an avant-garde approach, McCormack's pieces have been exhibited widely throughout Europe. He explores painting as a work ethic—mixing his own paint, fabricating his own tools, and stressing the aspects of routine and physical labor of being an artist. The large scale canvases are created with limited color palettes and found objects, leaving distinct marks on each painting. The final pieces offer an utterly unique viewing experience and mark the appearance of an arresting new voice in Irish fine art. Long-listed for the Saatchi New Sensations Award "I have constructed a practice that explores painting as a work ethic… I am interested in the time spent by the viewer, in front of the canvas; I wonder what they think, and if they consider their time spent as worthwhile."—Eóin Francis McCormack

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.

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife - New York Historical Society Through July 15, 2018 - Upper West Side

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife, an exhibition exploring the history of the ground-breaking Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, examines the circumstances that inspired early environmentalists—many of them women and New Yorkers—to champion the protection of endangered birds.

It also regulated the nation's commercial plume trade, which had decimated many American bird species to the point of near extinction.

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.

GOLDSTEIN, the highly anticipated new musical about family, opens Monday, March 26th at the Actors Temple Theatre (339 West 47 St -between 8th and 9th Avenues). Michael Riedel NYPost said, “Like Rags mixed with a touch of Fiddler on the Roof, keep your eye on Goldstein.” Goldstein is based upon Louis Goldstein’s tell-all family memoir best seller. With music and lyrics are Michael Roberts and a book by Charlie Schulman, this uplifting and heartwarming, multi-generational musical explores the challenges and triumphs of an immigrant Jewish American family. The cast of 7 of Broadway’s best performers reminds us that families are complicated, the truth is never clear, and forgiveness is our best hope. Tickets are $79 and are available by visiting www.Goldsteinmusical.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.

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

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

Classes are presented in a lively, creative and interactive way. The classes are suitable for children 6-14 years of age. Meditation for Children is an ongoing program every Sunday morning throughout the school year. Classes are held in the children’s meditation room at Kadampa Meditation Center Long Island in Huntington.

Judha Su is an art critic and writer, working on shifting boundaries of contemporary arts, diverse forms of artistic practices, and politics of knowledge. She perceives art as a point of contact, negotiation, and entry to imagine beyond a conditioned reality. Her current project revolves around reclaiming thinking subjectivities, a transmission of bodily and nonverbal knowledge, and a re-distribution of sensory experiences. From 2015–16, she received a research fellowship from the Japan Foundation Asia Center to conduct fieldwork about practices of art writing in Indonesia, Philippines, and Japan. Last year, she initiated a collaborative project titled "To Whom It May Concern"; started as a laboratory exhibition at Bangkok CityCity Gallery, the project has now developed into a Thai-English online platform for collective learning. Judha is also a laborer of "soi" – a space for dialogue, research, and pedagogy. Judha is in residence at Art in General from April to July 2018 through the support of the Asian Cultural Council.

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.

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

This powerful new exhibit displays products, projects, and services developed by and with people with disabilities—physical, cognitive, and sensory—that expand their ability to lead independent lives and engage more fully in the world.

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.

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/

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.

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.
