Prurience – Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
March 21, 2018 – New York

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

Screening & Live Event: After Louie – Museum of the Moving Image
March 21, 2018 – Queens

Dir. Vincent Gagliostro. 2017, 100 mins. Digital projection. With Alan Cumming, Zachary Booth, Wilson Cruz, Sarita Choudhury. After Louie explores the contradictions of modern gay life and history through Sam (Cumming), a man desperate to understand how he and his community got to where they are today. As an AIDS activist and member of ACT UP in the 1980s and 90s, Sam witnessed the deaths of too many friends and lovers. Battle-wounded and struggling with survivor's guilt, Sam now resents the complacency of his former comrades and derides what he sees as the younger generation's indifference to the politics of sex, and of death. An unexpected intimacy with a much younger man challenges Sam's understanding of contemporary gay life. Through this unconventional romance, he is forced to deal with the trauma that so informs his past, their present, and an unknown future

Art Lecture: Berthe Morrisot- First Female Impressionist – Freeport Public Library
March 21, 2018 – Freeport

The Soul Rebels – The Capitol Theatre
March 21, 2018 – Port Chester

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.
The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.
"It's possible that no band in the world has a more impressive resume than The Soul Rebels. The eight-piece brass ensemble out of New Orleans plays upward of 250 shows a year in every conceivable setting from jazz to hip-hop to funk and rock, and their list of collaborators is too voluminous to do it any justice: Nas, Metallica, Rakim, Arcade Fire, Maceo Parker, Marilyn Manson, Slick Rick, Green Day, Talib Kweli, The Roots…" – PASTE
"The Soul Rebels, New Orleans' finest brass ensemble…" – VICE
"The Soul Rebels are the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong." – VILLAGE VOICE
"New Orleans' top-shelf brass ensemble The Soul Rebels…wind-wielding wizardry of New Orleans' finest." – OKAYPLAYER
"The Soul Rebels are rebelling against one, albeit detestable thing: starchy paint-by-numbers music." – VIBE

Flyte – Mercury Lounge
March 21, 2018 – New York

The best bands are formed not by people who decide on music as a viable career path, but by people who have no choice.
"When I was ten I got a nylon-stringed guitar and a Beatles songbook and that was it: I was going to be a songwriter," says Will Taylor of Flyte, who have just made an album of perfectly constructed songs rich with deep harmonies, sunny melodies, and the happy/sad uncertainties of life and love. "I didn't even do my A levels. I love reading, I'll continue to educate myself, but I was so sure I wanted to be in a band that staying at school seemed completely pointless. Mum was a bit upset, especially as she's an English teacher, but I think I made a good case for it."
Flyte's debut album shimmers with a very English melancholy. There is ancient, churchlike resonance to the choral harmonies of Annie & Alistair, a tale of the twelve-step programme at Alcoholics Anonymous. There is something of Orange Juice's sun-dappled innocence to Victoria Falls, and shades of Simon & Garfunkel in the beautiful acoustic ballad Orphans of the Storm, but also the spirit of the English outsider, romantic and hopeful and never entirely satisfied, running throughout the album. You can hear it in Sliding Doors, a Talk Talk-inspired tale of a suicide, and in Cathy Come Home, in which the parents of a girl whose boyfriend has been beating her up beg her to return to the family fold.

Jazz standards will preside alongside popular songs laced with gospel infusion and ballads that morph into funk excursions all anchored by the organ trio. Expect some appearances by some very special guests, as well.

Camille Bertault – Jazz Standard
Through March 21, 2018 – New York

"French singer Camille Bertault's life changed almost overnight after she posted a video of her singing John Coltrane's 'Giant Steps,'" wrote Simon Rentner for WBGO Online in March, 2017. "After the video was shared by thousands, she became an Internet darling for her whimsical sing–alongs with artists across the musical spectrum: Hermeto Pascoal, Cory Henry, even Glenn Gould's Goldberg Variations (performed as she prepares dinner)." On her debut disc En Vie (Sunnyside, 2015), Bertault warmly inter-preted songs by Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Rowles, and Duke Ellington alongside her own lyrical originals like "Double Face" and "Satiesque." This much–anticipated Jazz Standard engagement celebrates the equally anticipated release of Pas De Géant (Giant's Step), Camille Bertault's new album and her first re-lease for the Sony/OKeh label. "Camille Bertault is more than merely a sly vocal gymnast; she's a fine composer and a singer who carefully coaxes the emotional impact of a melody." (DownBeat)

Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump – The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center
March 21, 2018 – New York

First came images of ovens, followed by a Twitter storm of anti-Semitism: "Jews are the biggest murderers of Levantines," one read. "Hostile foreign power?" another asked, before answering, "Jews."
Deputy Washington editor of the New York Times, Jonathan Weisman has a pretty conspicuous last name, so he was an easy Twitter target for the wave of such attacks that erupted during the 2016 election. All too familiar with old clichés about Jews as leftist anarchists, Wall Street profiteers or money-bags Israeli war financiers, he suddenly wondered: How has the Jewish experience changed?In his new book, (((Semitism))), Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump, Weisman explores the disconnect between his own sense of Jewish identity and the expectations of his detractors and supporters.
Join us for an evening with the author, whose latest release couldn't be timelier.

Mystery School – Judson Memorial Church
March 21, 2018 – New York

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

Valor, Agravio Y Mujer – Repertorio Español
March 21, 2018 – New York

In this comedy of honor, Ana Caro criticizes the customs of her era and the position of women in the social order while ridiculing through parody the erotic myth of Don Juan.
The protagonist, Leonor, seeks to recover her lost honor against Don Juan who made a false promise of marriage while seducing her. To revenge herself, Leonor dresses in male attire (a common technique in Spanish Golden Age Theatre), calls herself Leonardo, and pretends to be a rival suitor for her hand. Don Juan has already moved to seduce the Duchess Estela, who in turn falls in love with "Leonardo." After a series of deceits and much ado, Leonor denounces Don Juan and regains her honor by forcing him into marriage with her. Although a typical finale for a 17th century Spanish play, the unconventional aspect is that a woman has solved her own misfortune without the help of a man.

The Dixie Dregs – The Egg Performing Arts Center
March 21, 2018 – Albany

The Dixie Dregs reunite for the The Dawn of the Dregs tour.
For guitar aficionados, Steve Morse needs no introduction, and his place in the pantheon of guitar greats is certain. But in fact, his career started with the Dixie Dregs, and with much anticipation and in response to demand from devoted fans, the original lineup announces a return to live performance for the Dawn of the Dregs Tour!
The band traces its true beginnings to the band Dixie Grit, which started in a Georgia high school with Steve on guitar and Andy West on bass. Dixie Grit morphed into the Dixie Dregs at the University of Miami School of Music, where Allen Sloan (violin) and Rod Morgenstein (drums) joined up with Steve and Andy, who were the "dregs" of Dixie Grit. The members of the Dixie Dregs remained committed to attending the University of Miami School of Music, which hosted a lively and talented musical community during their tenure, including future greats Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, T Lavitz, and Bruce Hornsby, among many others. In 1975, the group's demo album, The Great Spectacular, was recorded at the University of Miami.
After graduation, the band moved back to Augusta where Steve Davidowski (keyboards) completed the band that would eventually emerge and become known simply as The Dregs. The band paid its dues and honed its skills playing in bars and venues throughout the South in the mid-70's. They established themselves in the firmament of American instrumental music, seamlessly fusing rock with progressive and jazz elements to create a uniquely instrumental-driven style that has stood the test of time.
Capricorn Records signed the Dixie Dregs to record Free Fall (1977). The success and critical acclaim of Free Fall announced the Dixie Dregs to the world, and after its release, they would became a cult favorite band that would have a lasting influence on much
of modern rock.
Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released eleven commercial albums of original material, and a number of compilations, reissues, and countless live bootlegs also exist. Along the way they have garnered six (!) Grammy nominations. The band has played with several well-known additional alumni and guests — among others, Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra) Alex Ligertwood (Santana) and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) — and its original band members have played and recorded on well over 300 releases (including Deep Purple (Steve Morse) and Winger/Jelly Jam (Rod Morgenstein)).

The Cover of Life – Gene Frankel Theatre
March 21, 2018 – New York

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

Sheila Jordan & Cameron Brown – Cornelia Street Cafe
March 21, 2018 – New York

It started in Toledo, Ohio, early 50's, Sheila sitting in with Charles Mingus and Lee Konitz: she said, "but there's no piano." Charles said, "you don't need a piano." She sang and she was hooked: on the sound, on the silence, on the transparency, on the freedom. It became her favorite way to perform. When she approached Cameron to join her, nearly 20 years ago, it was a dream come true for him. Not only because it was Sheila, not only because he knew how much it would mean to his growth as a musician, not only because of his love for the human voice, but also because it fit right in with his affinity for the transparent sound he had found playing with Don Cherry. Sheila did jazz operas with Don, shares a birthday with him and has written lyrics to his songs. You'll hear these as well as standards, jazz standards, original music, lyrics and poetry. Sheila and Cam take you back to her dear friend, Charlie Parker; they delight in having all of modern jazz history at their fingertips. And the duo format colors everything they play with a particular intensity, intimacy and poignancy. Sheila was designated a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2012.

Lauren Lee Quartet – Cornelia Street Cafe
March 21, 2018 – New York

Leading a pioneering quartet with a fresh perspective, enterprising young vocalist/pianist Lauren Lee twists and reworks standard jazz notions by blending them with influences as far reaching as Scandinavian folk music, Gregorian Chant, and the Feminist Punk Movement. Her playfulness and endless sense of adventure as a composer and improviser led her to be described by JazzWeekly as creating "music without a net" as she strives to explore the outskirts of what is possible in jazz in her own way.
"Wayne Shorter described jazz as a challenge, and we believe that Lauren has addressed this challenge most successfully, especially with her vocalese, which is firmly rooted in the trio as an instrumental texture"– www.lahabitaciondeljazz.com

They say you need three things to succeed in the music business – talent, timing and luck. Plus a little something extra to get you noticed. Joep Beving has all four in abundance.
At nearly six foot ten, with his wild hair and flowing beard, the Dutch pianist resembles a friendly giant from a book of children's fairy tales. But his playing – understated, haunting, melancholic – marks him out as the gentlest of giants, his delicate melodies soothing the soul in these troubled times.

The Whole Poem with Neil Shepard – Poets House
March 21, 2018 – New York

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.

What Makes Us Do the Right Thing: Living Humanism – New York Society for Ethical Culture
March 21, 2018 – New York

Humanism is as old as humanity and as necessary a philosophy today as ever. Definitions abound, but novelist Kurt Vonnegut put it most succinctly: "Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead." As a worldview, Humanism places humanity within, not above or outside, nature. Awareness of our mortality prompts us to learn more about our existence and environment, just as it inspires us to give meaning to our lives. In taking responsibility for our actions, Humanists dedicate ourselves to improving living conditions for everyone.
This course will delve into the history of Humanism, elucidate its key concepts, and address the ways in which this philosophy (and, for some, religion) can guide us in the future. Syllabus and resource materials will be made available upon registration. Guest speakers will introduce participants to varieties of Humanism

Think Olio: The Problem of Evil – Nowadays
March 21, 2018 – Ridgewood

We're excited to welcome Think Olio back to present another amazing 90-minute class (with a beer break, of course) at the 'days. This go around the class is "The Problem of Evil," taught by Jeanne Proust. Jeanne has studied philosophy and visual arts in Bordeaux, Berlin and Paris and has taught at universities around New York City. Here's what she has to say to prep the session:
When we try to describe, understand and respond to various atrocities such as rapes, genocides, or serial killings, we often use the word EVIL. A wide range of questions arise when we try to think critically about the relevance of this term within the various discourses we are surrounded with.
Should we use the term 'evil' in our moral, political, and legal discourse and thinking, or is evil an outdated or empty concept which should be abandoned?
What happens when we qualify an action, or someone as being evil? What causes this moral judgement, and what effects may have this judgement?
In this Olio we will begin a discussion about the historicity of the concept of Evil, its relativity, and the diversity of feelings that it inspires in us, such as fear, disgust, shame, spite, hate, or compassion. Together, we will try to analyze the complexity of this concept, and the symbolic representations that it may carry.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band – Birdland
March 21, 2018 – New York

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

Towards Zero Tolerance: FGM in America – The Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission
March 22, 2018 – New York

The panel discussion will feature a testimonial from a survivor of FGM. This will be followed by a conversation about how we can build improved networks for advocacy, intervention, and assistance at both the federal and community levels for survivors and those at risk, with the goal of reaching a national "zero tolerance" response to FGM.
In the second half of 2017 alone, MALA received three calls directly related to cases where girls under the age of 18 were facing imminent risk of genital mutilation.
MALA operates on an existential concern for the wellbeing of all communities in America, and believes that the best way to empower networks of support and intervention is through focused discourse and accountability at all levels, from the federal to the community levels. The first step towards "zero tolerance" for FGM is to ensure that resources are accessible to those who have been affected or who are at risk.

Son Lux: Sinkane, Hanna Benn – Brooklyn Steel
March 22, 2018 – Brooklyn

Son Lux is the grand genre-less dream of Los Angeles composer Ryan Lott brought to roiling, vivid life with the help of two New Yorkers, guitarist Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang. Each is a writer, producer, and performer with omnivorous taste and a penchant for wild improvisation—a band whose mix of electronic pop, unusual soul, and outright experimentalism feels more inviting than ever on the project's fifth album, Brighter Wounds. The songs therein leave behind Son Lux's typically universal themes for deeply personal fare. While making Brighter Wounds, Lott became a father to a baby boy and lost a best friend to cancer. Days of "firsts" were also days of "lasts," and the normal fears that accompany parenthood were compounded by a frightening new reality—Lott's son arrived shortly after Election Day. These songs draw on all of that: warm reflections of a fading past, pain wrenched from a still-present loss, and a mix of anxiety and hope for a future that is promised to no one.

The PennyPan Cabaret – Nuyorican Poets Cafe
Through March 22, 2018 – New York

The PennyPan Cabaret is a new feature-length theatrical show that weaves together fantasy and causality over the gritty backdrop of New York City life. Using original musical compositions from some of the city's best singer/songwriters and a script peppered with Romance languages and spoken-word poetry, The PennyPan Cabaret tells three unique New York Stories:
The Busker – One man's journey to greatness by way of the city's subterranean.
Pennies From Heaven? – The road to perdition might be paved with good intentions, but sometimes the opposite is also true. Scenes from a downtown alley.
Pan on the Skids: a spoken-word operetta in two acts -Where do you go when paradise has become unpalatable? Why, to Brooklyn, of course. Philandering Greek god Pan takes his hooves on a walkabout through the city that never sleeps.
Comically brooding and musically inventive, this show is an aller-retour to a time and place that never quite was but still seems familiar, because life is life is life.

Julia emerged from it all a sensitive badass who rides vintage Triumph motorcycles and sings primal rock n' roll with smoldering expressivity. Julia's signature artistry evokes Brigitte Bardot, Marianne Faithfull, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, and Lou Reed

The Rubens: Million Man Tour – Baby's All Right
March 22, 2018 – Brooklyn

Acclaimed Australian band The Rubens' video for their track, "Million Man," premieres on Billboard. "Million Man" marks the first single off the band's highly anticipated third album due for release in early 2018 and follows the platinum-certified, global hit single "Hoops."
The story of "Million Man" began at 2013's Laneway Music Festival, where The Rubens befriended New York City rapper EL-P and his band, which included his Run The Jewels producers/collaborators, brothers Wilder Zoby and Little Shalimar (aka Torbitt Schwartz). After a few nights spent drinking in New York at a bar that Torbitt and Wilder co-owned, it seemed their effortless friendship could lead to a pretty interesting musical collaboration.
In early 2017, both producers flew to the band's newly created recording studio, housed in a World War II communications bunker in the outskirts of Camden in Sydney and began working on new material. Of the collaboration, keyboardist, vocalist and songwriter Elliott Margin says, "When it came time to look for a producer for this new record, we realized that they'd be the perfect guys to work with. 'Million Man' was the first track we worked on in the studio with the boys. It was genuinely just a fun time building the song and being creative together."
In support of their forthcoming album, the band confirms worldwide tour dates in Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, London, Berlin and Paris as well as special performances at New York's Mercury Lounge and Brooklyn's Baby's All Right. Tickets are on sale starting at 10AM on December 1 at therubensmusic.com. See below for complete tour details.
The Rubens are a five-piece alternative rock band originally from Menangle, New South Wales. The band comprises the three Margin brothers, Elliott, Zaac and Sam as well as friends Scott Baldwin and William Zeglis. The bands 2016 sophomore album, Hoops, is now certified ARIA Gold while their title track is now ARIA Certified Platinum and was awarded #1 on Triple J Hottest 100 Chart. The band have also opened for several major acts including Bruce Springsteen, The Black Keys and Grouplove.

Signs in the City: Outdoor Advertising and the New York City Skyline – Museum of the City of New York
March 22, 2018 – Upper East Side

When monumental billboards and illuminated signs appeared on top of NYC buildings at the turn of the 20th century, they provoked intense debate among architects, planners, artists, lawyers, and citizens about the changing nature of the cityscape. Join Craig Lee, Andrew W. Mellon Predoctoral Fellow, to trace how outdoor advertising displays went from a "blight" and a "nuisance" to becoming official NYC landmarks in the New York City skyline.
This event is geared towards educators but open to all with interest in the topic.
Educators will learn about sources in the exhibition New York at Its Core available to support their students' learning in the Museum and online. Participants will leave with resources for the classroom and a CTLE certificate for 1.5 hours of professional development.
Light refreshments will be served.
The Museum is grateful to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which supports a Predoctoral Fellowship Program in History Education.

LABA at The 14th Street Y presents LABAlive WAR & PEACE: ONE – 14th Street Y
Through March 22, 2018 – New York

LABA at The 14th
Street Y
presents
LABAlive WAR & PEACE: ONE
March 22, 2018, 7:30pm
LABA presents LABAlive WAR & PEACE: ONE, an evening of theater works-in-progress by current fellows on March 22, 2018 at 7:30pm at The Theater at the 14th Street Y, 344 E. 14th Street, New York, NY 10003. Tickets are $20 and are available at www.14streety.org/labalive.
 
Each year, LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture brings together ten fellows to study classic Jewish texts in a non-religious, open-minded setting centered on a chosen theme – this year's is WAR+PEACE. Inspired by these ancient Jewish texts, three fellows will present new works in an evening of art, drinks, and text.
 
LABAlive War & Peace: ONE presents the work of Tal Beery, Brandon Woolf and Jess Hanovich, with teaching by Tablet Magazine's Liel Leibovitz.
 
Tal Beery // and those black braids // Theater 
A performance by artist Tal Beery responding to the only item left of his estranged grandmother: her dubious 1949 account of surviving the Holocaust. Beery's impossible search for her real story tangles with a painful past that, like it or not, is gone forever.
 
Jess Honovich // SUPER PLAY // Theater 
What is a superhero, and what exactly makes them "super?" Theater practitioner and playwright Jess Honovich seeks the answers to these questions by interviewing those who know and love them most: three- to five-year-old children. An evolving verbatim performance piece, THE UNTITLED SUPERHERO PROJECT investigates how we learn through play.
 
Brandon Woolf // M., or, 36 Righteous Coffee Machines // Theater 
At the end of page 96b of tractate Sanhedrin, the editors of the Babylonian Talmud begin a lengthy discussion of the coming days of the Messiah. The texture of this Talmudic text-fragment is heterogeneous to say the least: dialogue, debate, parable, philosophical reflection, mathematical calculation, geopolitical commentary, prayer, and conspiracy theory. This work-in-progress performance, conceived by Brandon Woolf, is a meditation on the active, the passive, the apocalyptic, the redemptive, and – perhaps most centrally – the caffeinated qualities of waiting.
 
Liel Leibovitz // The Slaying of Sisera (Judges 4-5)
When Yael hammers a tent peg into Sisera's temple, it is one of the Bible's most triumphant acts of violence, a celebration of bravery by a heroic young warrior. But before we can rejoice in the killing of a bitter enemy, we are confronted by the palpable sorrow of his mother, who waits in vain for his return. LABA teacher Liel Leibovitz sings the blues for Sisera's mother, sharing how this unlikeliest of biblical figures came to shape our commemoration of Rosh Hashanah.
 
THE FELLOWS
Tal Beery is an artist and educator. Beery is co-founder of Arts and Ecology, a multidisciplinary institute committed to research, art, and education on radical environmental themes. He is founding faculty at School of Apocalypse, examining the connections between creative practice and notions of survival. Beery is also a core member of Occupy Museums, opposing the economic and social injustices propagated by institutions of art and culture. His written work and interviews have appeared in numerous publications, and his personal and collaborative works have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the US and Europe, including the Whitney Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, El Museo Del Barrio, and Momenta Art.
 
Jess Honovich is a playwright, screenwriter and educator from Southern New Jersey. Her work has been produced and workshopped by Dezart Performs, Longwood University, New York University, the Paw Paw Village Players, Festival51, Project Y, and the Pittsburgh Opera. She is a 2017 O'Neill National Playwrights Conference Finalist for her play Giant Slalom, a 2017 Heideman Award finalist for her play Hardware, a recipient of the Mary Marlin Fisher Award for Excellence in Playwriting, and a 2016 Theatre Masters winner for her short play No More Monsters, which had productions in Aspen and New York City and is published by Samuel French. She holds a B.S. from New York University in Educational Theatre and a minor in Dramatic Literature and an MFA in Dramatic Writing from Carnegie Mellon University.
 
Brandon Woolf is a theater-maker and scholar of contemporary performance. Recently, he has worked at the Fulton Center, Uncanny Valley, NYUAD Arts Center, Barrow Group Theater, Dixon Place, the Connelly Theater, and the Kennedy Center. He is also the co-founder of two public performance ensembles – Shakespeare im Park Berlin and the UC Movement for Efficient Privatization (UCMeP). Between 2010 and 2014, Shake im Park, our playfully (ir)reverent take on the Papp model, created site-specific performances that drew audiences to Berlin's Görlitzer Park in order to rethink its dynamic spaces as sites of multi-lingual and inter-cultural performance, (post)dramatic experimentation, and participatory art. Between 2009 and 2011, UCMeP engaged performance as a tactical means of "creative protest" and mobilization against the austerity measures that beset public education in California. Currently, Brandon is developing projects that continue to probe theater's possibilities as a social and civic practice, including: a devised investigation of the five pages in the Talmud that tackle the "Messiah" (at LABA); a biographical reimagining of Brecht's Mother Courage as a site of the destruction of the American "home"; and an existential exploration and racial deconstruction of our "Golden Age" of television. Brandon received his Ph.D. in Performance Studies from UC Berkeley in 2014. He was a Fall Directing Fellow at the New York Drama League in 2015 as well as a "Next Stage" Artist-in-Residence there in 2017. In 2016, Brandon joined the English Department at NYU as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Theater. He currently serves as the Director of their Program in Dramatic Literature.
 
Though a few cheeseburgers removed from the faith of his fathers, Liel Leibovitz is the wayward son of a venerable rabbinic family that has spent centuries finding out new ways to fear God. He is the author or co-author of several books, including, most recently, A Broken Hallelujah: Rock n' Roll, Redemption, and the Life of Leonard Cohen. A senior writer for Tablet Magazine, he is one of the hosts of Unorthodox, the magazine's popular podcast. He holds a PhD in communications from Columbia University, where he studied video games as religious pursuit. Before recovering from the travails of academia, he taught at Barnard and New York University. He is a fundamentalist when it comes to good coffee, and lives in Manhattan with his wife and children.
LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture is a program of the 14th Street Y that uses classic Jewish texts to inspire dialogue, study, and the creation of art.

Lunch and Learn Series – Museum of American Finance
March 22, 2018 – New York

Long overlooked in histories of finance, women played an essential role in areas such as banking and the stock market during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Yet their presence sparked ongoing controversy. Hetty Green's golden touch brought her millions, but she outraged critics with her rejection of domesticity. Progressives like Victoria Woodhull, meanwhile, saw financial acumen as more important for women than the vote. George Robb's pioneering study sheds a light on the financial methods, accomplishments and careers of three generations of women.
Plumbing sources from stock brokers' ledgers to media coverage, Robb reveals the many ways women invested their capital while exploring their differing sources of information, approaches to finance, interactions with markets and levels of expertise. He also rediscovers the forgotten women bankers, brokers and speculators who blazed new trails–and sparked public outcries over women's unsuitability for the predatory rough-and-tumble of market capitalism. Entertaining and vivid with details, Ladies of the Ticker: Women and Wall Street from the Gilded Age to the Great Depression sheds light on the trailblazers who transformed Wall Street into a place for women's work.

Musical Salute To The First Ladies of Neo-Soul: Sade, Lauryn Hill & Jill Scott feat. Emilie Surtees – Club Bonafide
March 22, 2018 – New York

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

The Cover of Life – Gene Frankel Theatre
March 22, 2018 – New York

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

The Teskey Brothers – Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
March 22, 2018 – New York

Sam and Josh Teskey discovered American soul music of the 1960's via their parents' record collection and were immediately taken. As teenagers, the two brothers jammed night after night in the bungalow behind their family home on the outskirts of Melbourne, devouring the R&B songbook and absorbing the tricks of the blues trade. In their obsession, the pair became accomplished players and soon began writing originals, a process which came naturally to them both.
In 2008, they joined with Liam Gough (drums) and Brendon Love (bass) to form The Teskey Brothers. The group spent the next eight years cutting their teeth in Melbourne city-fringe pubs and backyard party jams, honing the old-school Motown soul sound and working it into something of their own. At last in 2016 the band emerged from their home studio with a self-produced debut album Half Mile Harvest.

Over the span of his career, Sean Paul has worked with quite a number of international and local hip-hop stars such as Busta Rhymes, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Keyshia Cole, Kelly Rowland, Juicy J, 2Chainz and Nicki Minaj.

Jen Shyu's Nine Doors – Cornelia Street Cafe
March 22, 2018 – New York

2016 Doris Duke Artist and 2017 Downbeat Rising Star Female Vocalist Jen Shyu will perform her solo work Nine Doors 1st set and an improvised duo with the unparalleled and world-renowned guitarist Ben Monder (2014 Doris Duke Impact Awardee) on the 2nd set. Nine Doors is a powerful and ecstatic piece that evokes at spiritual levels both personal and global. It was inspired by the loss of Shyu's friend Sri Joko Raharjo "Cilik," who died with his wife and infant son in an automobile accident at the age of 30. Raharjo was a master of the Javanese art of shadow puppetry called wayang kulit. His 6-year-old daughter, who survived the crash, is the central character in Shyu's piece. Time stops as she encounters powerful female legends—from the Wehali Kingdom of Timor to the Korean folkloric myth of Baridegi, the mother of all shamans—who become her guides. A mysterious phone booth in a gardener's yard in Otsuchi, Japan, which has become a comfort to the families who lost loved ones in the 2011 Tsunami, also enters into the story, with the gardener having given Shyu permission to compose a piece with his poetry titled "Phone of the Wind" ("Kaze no Denwa"). The work reflects the parallels that exist between life and death, different cultures, and the importance of empathy over destructive assumptions that divide humanity.
Jen Shyu is "…one of the most creative vocalists in contemporary improvised music…" — David Hadju, The Nation

Jen Shyu, Ben Monder Duo – Cornelia Street Cafe

Late Slip, DJ Miss Guy – The Map Room at The Bowery Electric
March 22, 2018 – New York

ONE EXTRA COLD NEW YORK CITY WINTER,
Late Slip's Chelsea Nenni (guitar/vocals) hid in her apartment, wrote a bunch of songs, and decided to move to Los Angeles. Once in LA, she got a job at her fave independent record store, Amoeba Music, and met a musician pal who helped her record the Other Men EP.
Other Men got airplay on a couple local radio stations and the band gained traction with live shows all over LA. They even spent a night supporting iconic new wave / post-punk rockers, Missing Persons, at the famed Whisky A Go-Go.
Standing on that stage, where both Iggy Pop and Gwen Stefani had once stood, Chelsea knew she was ready to go back to New York City. The winters would be cold, but she'd have Iggy-Gwen stardust to protect her.
So, Chelsea moved all her shit back across the country and found a new band in Andrew B. White (bass guitar) and Daryl Cozzi (drums) within two weeks of being back in town. In their first gig together, the band opened for Fred Thomas who was James Brown's bass player in the 1960's. He sprinkled some funky pixie dust on them that night and it's been magic ever since.

Perlman, "indisputably one of the great violinists" (The Guardian), and Zukerman, praised for his "pristine technique and honest musicianship" (Los Angeles Times), are longtime friends and musical partners who bring virtuosity and joy to every performance.

AdHoc Presents: An Evening with Mount Eerie – Knockdown Center
March 22, 2018 – Maspeth

Phil Elverum's evolution as a songwriter has hinged on a balance of boundlessness and intimacy. As Mount Eerie, and prior to 2004 as The Microphones, he has pioneered a distinct form of existential music that feels entirely homegrown. While each album has been unique in sound and approach, they all grapple with big questions in ways that are human and relatable. Death and conceptions of self are recurring themes, presented in direct and oblique ways. Over the course of two decades he has developed an international following almost completely divorced from the larger music industry, releasing and recording his own albums, and booking his own tours. Few songwriters can match the depth of both thought and emotion that Elverum puts into his work.

Jonah Tolchin Band – Hill Country Live
March 22, 2018 – New York

Immediately after Jonah Tolchin finished recording his new album, 'Thousand Mile Night,' he got behind the wheel and lived it, driving from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, all the way back to his native New Jersey with guitarist Lucas Hamren in one straight shot. By the time the car finally coasted into Hamren's driveway in the early dawn light, the odometer had accumulated 998 miles. The journey wasn't quite over yet, though. Tolchin said his goodbyes, gathered his things from the back seat, and began the walk to his childhood home on nearby Clover Lane. It was precisely two more miles.

Confessions of a Cork Dork: Juicy Secrets of the New York Wine World
Amateur drinker Bianca Bosker gave up her day job to immerse herself for 18 months among the obsessive connoisseurs of New York, to answer a question that many of us have secretly pondered: "What's the big deal about wine?"
Her adventures while becoming a professional sommelier—which meant being drunk by mid-morning and hungover by noon most days—led her to some controversial conclusions, including the idea that "bad" wine is always bad. "Ignore the Snobs, Drink Cheap, Delicious Wine!" advised one notorious New York Times Op-Ed. Hailed as "the Kitchen Confidential" of the wine world, Cork Dork reveals how to never be intimidated by a wine list again.

The Soul Rebels with Special Guests to Be Announced! – Brooklyn Bowl
March 22, 2018 – Brooklyn

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.
The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

The Open Mind: Lessons from the Visual Arts with Eléna Rivera – Poets House
March 22, 2018 – New York

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

March 22, 2018 – New York

The National Organization for Women-NYC, Women's Justice NOW, and the New York Society for Ethical Culture are partnering on a series of public education events, titled "Rise Up NOW," focusing on the Trump administration and the impact its agenda is having on our civil liberties and our democracy. The 3-part series will explore attacks on our civil rights, the environment, and threats to our voting rights and our election through the lens of gender and equality. This series promises to cut through the news tsunami to get to the facts and how to resist NOW. (#ResistNOW, @NOW_NYC)
Please join us for the first of this series, "The Trump Effect? Women Lead the Resistance to Defend Civil Rights and Democracy," an empowering conversation about the state of women and civil rights in our nation today. Among the panelists will be David Cay Johnston, author of It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America; tax law professor at Syracuse University, and Vince Warren, Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights.
We will discuss some sobering setbacks and policy changes which are being quickly and quietly enacted with little media attention — from lifting bans on toxic pesticides to stacking the federal appeals courts with record numbers of white, male, anti-choice judges.

March 22, 2018 – Manhattan

While music television hastened the spread of pop culture icons to audiences far and wide, artists used video to achieve more radical and artistic ends. Avant-garde filmmaker John Smith was commissioned by Warner Brothers Music to create an Echo and the Bunnymen promo for release with the new wave band's 1981 EP Shine So Hard. The 30-minute film, like so much of Smith's moving-image work, upends the medium's underlying structures. (The work disappointed its backers and has been shown rarely). Concert footage centering on frontman Ian McCulloch is scarcer than quiet moments with the bandmates at mealtimes or artful vistas of pubs and snowy streets, all stringed together without hierarchy into an abstracted, avant-garde collage. On the social front, the television technicians union ACTT produced videos in support of the 1984 miners' strike, in alliance with politically active artists and the miners themselves. This episode of The Miners' Campaign Tapes focuses on the anti-miner narrative and personal attacks on strike leaders by mainstream television and press outlets. The easily produced and affordable video technology allowed the trade movement to create what film historian David E. James has called "working class television" as an alternative means of disseminating information, strengthening social bonds, and mobilizing resistance to the Thatcher government. The program concludes with examples of the Scratch Video movement, a loose grouping of artists in the early 1980s who drew on remix culture and television in their rapid-fire, punchy video assemblages. Pairing news, TV programs, and film broadcasts with graphic effects and new wave music, George Barber, the Duvet Brothers, and other Scratch artists created subversive and highly colorful video art—all packaged in Barber's influential and knowingly titled compendium The Greatest Hits of Scratch Video Volume 2.

Orny Adams – Levity Live
March 22, 2018 – West Nyack

American comic Orny Adams first rose to international prominence after co-starring in Jerry Seinfeld's documentary "Comedian." He has made several appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2010, Orny followed up his critically acclaimed debut comedy DVD/CD "Path Of Most Resistance," with a powerful and poignant one hour special "Orny Adams Takes The Third" which aired on Comedy Central. Currently, Orny can be seen playing the iconic role "Coach Finstock" on the hit MTV show "Teen Wolf," a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind's Jeff Davis. Jeff handpicked Orny for the role after seeing him at the Hollywood Improv.
Early in his career Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the "go to" guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on Letterman. In 2010, Orny was thrilled to return to the festival in Montreal working alongside one of his favorite comedians Steve Martin on a taped televised stand up show Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a "Stand-out act" by The Hollywood Reporter.

The Wedding Present – The Bell House
March 22, 2018 – Brooklyn

'The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock 'n' Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I'm right and you're wrong!' John Peel.
The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit singles… not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry's game. In 1985 David Lewis Gedge boarded a National Express coach in London with 500 records packed into a pair of his mother's suitcases and, in this fashion, the band's debut single GO OUT AND GET 'EM BOY! was delivered to the distribution company, and The Wedding Present was born. That pioneering spirit has been at the core of the band's philosophy ever since. From GEORGE BEST, 'an unmitigated delight' (NME), the first full-length release on their own Reception Records onwards, the band has charted an appealing, if often eccentric, course of its very own.
With their early releases The Wedding Present had acquired a reputation for bittersweet, breathtakingly honest love songs immersed in whirlwind guitars, so it was extraordinary that UKRAINSKI VISTUPI V JOHNA PEELA, with the band exploring traditional Eastern European folk music, should be their major label debut on RCA. '(They) carry off what is basically a bold experiment with verve' (NME). However, this was soon followed by the more traditionally incendiary BIZARRO, 'simply unbeatable' (Melody Maker) which featured their first hit single KENNEDY.
The next step, made with characteristically twisted Wedding Present logic, was to enlist noise-mongering (and, at that point, relatively unknown) sound engineer Steve Albini's aid at a time when everyone else was releasing 'Madchester' dance mixes. The resulting SEAMONSTERS, recorded in the snowy wilds of Minnesota in just 11 days, suggested a more thoughtful Wedding Present. The Guardian newspaper noted that: 'Albini has given The Wedding Present considerable weight, with Gedge's voice trickling between banks of scowling guitars'. Indeed, the singing ranged from sensual whispering to feverish screams.
The band came up with their next intriguing idea in 1992. By the end of December, The Wedding Present had released twelve singles, one per month, equalled Elvis Presley's 35 year old record for 'most hits in one year', rekindled everyone's interest in that ultimate pop format, the 7' and led the NME to describe the band as 'casually revolutionary and underhandedly unique'. A gang of impressive names, including Ian Broudie from The Lightning Seeds and legendary Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Miller collaborated on the industry-challenging project, ultimately to be compiled on the two HIT PARADE albums and awarded 'record of the week' by Tony Parsons in The Daily Telegraph.
WATUSI, produced by Steve Fisk (a prime mover in the celebrated avant-garde scene of Seattle), whisked the band off into another new area with its lo-fi pop, three-part a capella harmonies and Waikiki-ready surf strains. This 'strong, multifaceted album' (Select), sprinkled with 60s and 70s pastiches, was described by critics as their most varied and dynamic to date. 'Watusi is (their) 'White Album', a re-assessment of their sound that finds them doing what they do best' (Melody Maker).
The band returned to England to record their next release, the car themed MINI, 'a gem of a record' (Melody Maker) in which Gedge cloaked his tales of love, lust and infidelity with automobile symbolism. To commemorate this release, the band played (with two drummers!) at the BBC's Sound City Event, which was held that year in Leeds. During the concert, the winner of a prize draw was announced, and a lucky Wedding Present fan became the owner of a real life classic Austin Mini motor car provided by the band and delivered by David Gedge himself!
The follow-up, self-produced album, SATURNALIA was again released to a flurry of critical approval. The NME exclaimed that 'David Gedge has just written one of the best pop albums of the year' while The Melody Maker noted that in the new recordings, which were completed in the London studios belonging to The Cocteau Twins, you could 'hear an experimentalism that would send half of New York back to the lab'.
It was at this point in 1997 that Gedge started work on a new project called CINERAMA in which he indulged his love of film music from John Barry to Ennio Morricone. Cinerama started life as a duo (Gedge and his girlfriend Sally Murrell) together with a shifting line-up of collaborators. 1998's VA VA VOOM 'turbo-driven melodies and bittersweet vignettes taking in everything from John Barry to the Zombies' (The Times) featured The Church's Marty Wilson-Piper and Emma Pollock from The Delgados. Following its release, Gedge recruited the rhythm section of the disbanded Goya Dress (Terry de Castro and Simon Pearson) together with Wedding Present guitarist Simon Cleave for his new band.
Cinerama released a clutch of singles in support of their debut LP, as well as a number prior to 2000's Steve Albini-recorded DISCO VOLANTE 'dangerously, seductively sweet' (Melody Maker). Notable were the heart-rending SUPERMAN (complete with alternative Spanish take) and the six and a half minute epic HEALTH AND EFFICIENCY (also available in French!).
The third Cinerama studio album, TORINO (released in 2002), was much darker than the first two, with Gedge returning to a more guitar driven sound and deciding to write predominantly about infidelity. 'Cinerama are escaping the shadow of Gedge's illustrious indie-legend past. Torino is a giant beast of adulterous lyrical fantasies, cult soundtrack flourishes and the screams of Albini-engineered guitars' (Uncut).
At the end of 2002, Gedge and Murrell unexpectedly split up, and he decided to leave Leeds, his home for the preceding twenty-four years, and move to Seattle, Washington. Following the end of this fourteen-year relationship, Gedge began writing a collection of songs apparently influenced by his despair over the split. TAKE FOUNTAIN, the resultant album, was recorded in Seattle by Steve Fisk (who also produced The Wedding Present's WATUSI in 1994) and released, perhaps ironically, on St. Valentine's Day 2005. This saw Gedge reviving The Wedding Present name for the first album since 1996's SATURNALIA to a torrent of critical acclaim. TAKE FOUNTAIN 'is as eloquent an emotional discourse as he has mustered.' (Mojo). 'Fans have long since recognised Gedge as more poet than pop star. Like Byron without the marsh fever, TAKE FOUNTAIN confirms his status as an extraordinary songwriter' (The Times).
In the wake of TAKE FOUNTAIN's success, and after almost an eight-year hiatus, The Wedding Present set out on a mammoth twenty month concert tour of Europe and North America which included most of the major festivals and ended in November 2006. The following month Gedge relocated to Hollywood, California but ventured back across the Atlantic in October 2007 when The Wedding Present performed the GEORGE BEST album live as part of a George Best 'Twentieth Anniversary' Tour of Europe.
In January 2008 the band assembled in Steve Albini's Chicago studio to record EL REY, which was released in the summer of that year to further critical acclaim. The NME described the album as 'a beauty… some of the funniest, cleverest and most relevant indie you're likely to hear this year' while The Guardian newspaper agreed that 'Gedge has consistently been way ahead of other, more lauded musicians'. At the end of 2008 Gedge fulfilled a long held ambition by releasing a bona fide Christmas song, HOLLY JOLLY HOLLYWOOD, a duet with Los Angeles based chanteuse, Simone White.
In April 2009 Gedge collaborated with the BBC Big Band for the biannual Fuse Festival which was held in Leeds. For the event he performed Wedding Present and Cinerama songs backed by eighteen world class musicians including legendary trumpeter Derek Watkins. In what proved to be a busy yet unusual year for Gedge he also made his debut as a radio DJ in Texas, released his bass player's solo album on his own label and launched his own mini-festival, AT THE EDGE OF THE SEA, in Brighton.

Writing the Body with Kimiko Hahn – Poets House
March 22, 2018 – New York

What does text look like if a writer is "writing the body"? Poet Kimiko Hahn considers this, using as a starting place écriture féminine—the French feminist movement of the 1970s that defined writing as, in the words of scholar Elaine Showalter, "inscription of the feminine body and female difference in language and text." Hahn explores the concept of a "full throated" poetry of physicality in the work of writers like Emily Dickinson, Gertrude Stein, Sylvia Plath, Lucille Clifton, Joy Harjo, and Claudia Rankine.
Presented as part of Where My Dreaming and My Loving Live: Poetry & The Body, the second annual initiative of the Poetry Coalition, a national poetry coalition working together to promote the value poets bring to our culture and the important contribution poetry makes in the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds.

North Korea and the Art of the Deal – Asia Society and Museum
March 22, 2018 – New York

Kim Jong Un's headlong pursuit of nuclear missiles capable of striking the continental United States has put North Korea on a collision course with the U.S. and its allies, alienated China, and frightened the world. With tensions flaring, diplomacy is widely seen as the best tool to avert another bloody conflict on the Korean Peninsula. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that the U.S. is "ready to talk any time…without preconditions," but President Trump cautioned him not to "waste his time." On New Year's Day, North Korea abruptly offered talks with the South in conjunction with the Olympics, but ruled out any discussion of its nuclear weapons.
Past negotiations have achieved limited, but transitory success. In 1994, as tensions on the Korean Peninsula reached a crisis point, Robert Gallucci negotiated a landmark "Agreed Framework" deal with North Korea that halted its plutonium enrichment program and allowed UN inspectors into the country. A decade later, after the revelation of a secret North Korean uranium-based nuclear program, Christopher Hill helped negotiate a Six-Party Joint Statement between six countries, which combined a North Korean commitment to abandon its nuclear program with an American security guarantee not to attack or invade North Korea.

Theo Katzman – Music Hall of Williamsburg
March 22, 2018 – Brooklyn

If you've heard the name Theo Katzman recently, you probably know him as the singing drummer and guitarist in the funk band Vulfpeck. But with his 2017 release, Heartbreak Hits, Katzman returns to his roots as a rock and roll inspired singer/songwriter. A 10-song collection of musings on loss and letdown, Heartbreak Hits blends personal vulnerability with imaginative songcraft, yielding an album that's somehow a living dichotomy of tragic/comedic, serious/satirical, over-the-top/subtle, and healing/hurting. In his own words, Katzman says he writes "songs to soothe your post-Y2K pop culture hangover." He also wrote this bio.

Irish Mythen – Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 22, 2018 – New York

True power inspires awe, and Irish Mythen packs a lot of it – lyrical, musical, and personal – into a relatively small frame.
Mythen is a globetrotting troubadour – an Irish-born, contemporary Canadian folk artist who's been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents over the years. Her presence and charisma simply command attention, and regardless of where she takes the stage, she delivers a sonic and emotional experience that transcends language and location; that reaches the very core of what connects us. It's an experience that, in recent years, has earned her spots performing alongside Rod Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot, Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams and Melissa Etheridge and billings on major festival stages the world over.
Perhaps most significant of those other facets is her live show – an impactful and impressive tour-de-force that finds Irish combining her contemporary and catchy anthems with traditional tunes borrowed from her homeland. All are woven together with a signature blend of edgy humour and heartfelt storytelling while her presence and performance magnetically draw eyes and ears towards the small-statured powerhouse on stage.

Joshua Radin – City Winery
Through March 22, 2018 – New York

Though Joshua Radin enjoyed singing during his childhood, the Cleveland native never intended to be a professional musician. Instead, he studied drawing and painting at Northwestern University, following his college years with stints as an art teacher, screenwriter, and art gallery employee. Eventually, Radin took a stab at songwriting and played one of his earliest compositions, "Winter," for his friend Zach Braff. The burgeoning actor/director took an immediate liking to the song, and "Winter" eventually found its way onto Braff's hit television show Scrubs in early 2004. After fans began to request more of his music, Radin decided to pursue a songwriting career and signed with Columbia Records, which issued his debut album, We Were Here, in 2006.
Radin relocated to Los Angeles and aligned himself with the Hotel Cafe, a unique Hollywood venue specializing in performances by singer/songwriters. He soon found himself playing national tour dates with a number of Hotel Cafe regulars, including Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, and Meiko. Meanwhile, he issued a pair of digital EPs while readying the release of his sophomore album, Simple Times, which arrived in late 2008. The album was released in the U.K. two years later. Meanwhile, Radin placated his American fans by issuing a short EP, Songs Under a Streetlight, and putting the finishing touches on The Rock and the Tide, which appeared in October 2010.

Women in Art – The Met Fifth Avenue
March 22, 2018 – Upper East Side

Barbara Stehlé, art historian
We have reason to believe that female artists have contributed to the history of art since prehistory, not only as muses, but as creators who fashioned history and defined the arts. The Met collection features great works authored by women. The major artistic movements of the last four centuries reveal the role women played in the definition of modernity. The questions they asked, the life they lived, and their dialogue with their male colleagues will be at the center of our investigation. This will be an up-close introduction to a female-centered art history.

Pedrito Martinez – BB King Blues Club & Grill
March 22, 2018 – New York

Pedro Pablo "Pedrito" Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, Sept 12, 1973. He began his musical career at the age of 11, performing as vocalist and percussionist with such Cuban legends as Tata Guines and Munequitos de Matanzas. He was brought to Canada in 1998, by Jane Bunnett, to tour with her group, Spirits of Havana. His decision to remain in North America to pursue his career, proved to be an auspicious one when, two years later, the annual Thelonious Monk Institute Competition showcased Afro-Latin Hand Drumming for the first time ever. Pedro entered and won first place.
Since settling in New York City in 2,000, Pedrito has performed, recorded, and/or toured with Paquito D'Rivera; Brian Lynch; Steve Turre; Me'shell Ndege'Ocello; Eddie Palmieri; Bill Summers and Los Hombres Calientes; Arturo "Chico" O'Farrill; Stefon Harris; Bebo Valdes; Cassandra Wilson; Joe Lovano, and Sting, (for his rainforest benefit, with Elton John and Bruce Springsteen). Pedro was also featured in 2,000, in the documentary film on Cuban music, Calle 54.
Mr. Martinez was a founding member of the highly successful, Afro-Cuban/Afro-Beat band,Yerba Buena with which he recorded two albums and toured the world opening for the Dave Matthews Band, Willie Nelson and Ray Charles.
Pedrito has also lent his talents to over one hundred records, including albums by Paquito d'Rivera, Issac Delgado, Eliane Elias, Stefon Harris, Steve Turre, Eddie Palmieri, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Conrad Herwig , Edie Brickell and many others. These include six records that have been Grammy nominated and one, a collaboration between Eddie Palmieri and Brian Lynch, called "Simpatico", that was awarded a Grammy.

Through March 23, 2018 – Norwalk

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/

Antonio Vivaldi is a household name through his vastly famous The Four Seasons.

Guest soprano Ilana Davidson will sing two unforgettable cantatas, In furore, and Laudate, pueri. Ms Davidson, described by The New York Times as a “crystalline soprano,” has had her work recognized with multiple Grammy awards, including “Best Classical Recording.” Freshman flute student Erin Barrett plays the famous La Notte (“Night”) concerto; and concertmaster Igor Pikayzen brings to the stage two of the most brilliant violin concertos that give the famous Seasons a run for its money. Enhancing the evening’s program is the world premiere of Ghazal, a profound and thoughtful work for string orchestra by graduating Adelphi senior, Oswaldo Machado.
The Adelphi PAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. Tickets are currently on sale for $25 with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni.

Prurience – Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
March 23, 2018 – New York

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

WAR 2018 – Paramount Hudson Valley Theater
March 23, 2018 – Peekskill

WAR – Paramount Hudson Valley Theater
March 23, 2018 – Peekskill

WAR, from the very beginning, in 1969 was a concept and musical laboratory to experiment with the blending of many musical styles and influences. They wound up being honored with 17 gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards, which included the triple platinum “The World Is a Ghetto” and double platinum “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” The group garnered excellent reviews from mainstream and music press alike after touring extensively across Europe and the United States. England’s New Music Express called WAR “the best live band I ever saw” after their first UK gig in London’s Hyde Park. Musicians on both sides of the ocean were buzzing about this new band. Jim Hendrix jammed with WAR at Ronnie Scott’s Clud the night on which Hendrix died. In late 1971 WAR released All Day Music, the title track would be the group’s first hit single, and their first gold single “Slippin’ Into Darkness” followed propelling the album to over 1 million sales and a winning streak that would continue for years. In 1972, the band’s sound was refined and deepened with the release of The World is ghetto; a celebratory, reflective, and gritty album which was recorded in just 29 days with Goldstein and legendary British recording engineer Chris Huston behind the recording console. Its first single, “The Cisco Kid” shipped gold and brought the band a following in the Hispanic community that has remained loyal to the group to this day. The thought provoking title song “The World Is A Ghetto” fueled the album to the Number One chart spot in Billboard and was voted Billboard’s Album of the Year. WAR’s global popularity is a tribute to the timelessness of its music and message. Perhaps, nothing epitomizes this truth greater than the fact that WAR has twice been honored by its hometown of Los Angeles, over twenty years apart, for its music making positive contributions to the betterment of the community. “The world is still a ghetto,” singer/keyboardist Lonnie Jordan said, echoing the title of the early album and song. “There will always be a reason to play our songs. When you come back to reality, you pull down WAR, because WAR is reality.”

BILLIE EILISH – The Bowery Ballroom
March 23, 2018 – New York

With an appetite for the gliding, glassy indie-pop of artists like Aurora and Lana Del Rey and the Distorted Menace of Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, Billie Eilish listens to music the way that most watch movies, entirely undefined by genre. This bleeds through into her own unique style of music, calling out lyrics with a mix of heartbreak and damaged indifference. Born and raised in Los Angeles by two actor/musician parents, Billie Eilish grew up surrounded by Art. She began singing in the Los Angeles Children's Chorus when she was 8 years old. Now at the "seasoned" age of 14, Billie has begun releasing her own original material, Produced and Co-written by her Older brother Finneas O'Connell (Of The Slightlys). With songs like "Fingers Crossed", telling an apocalyptic tale of a virus outbreak and the Song "Ocean Eyes" Calling out to a lost love, Billie's voice and perspective roams far beyond her years in it's emotion and power.

Katie Toupin (formerly of Houndmouth) – Rough Trade NYC
March 23, 2018 – Brooklyn

From Katie Toupin, formerly of the band Houndmouth, comes her solo debut, the self-released EP "Moroccan Ballroom." After years on the road with Houndmouth and a brief hiatus while getting settled in Los Angeles, Katie returned to writing. "Moroccan Ballroom" is entirely live, recorded during a session at the Village Studios to film some of her newly-written songs. She was so in love with the outcome that she realized she had to release them: the result is "Moroccan Ballroom," a totally authentic expression of Katie, with no overdubs or editing.
Before "Moroccan Ballroom," Katie toured for many years with Houndmouth, which she formed with friends at the age of 21. Houndmouth was signed by Rough Trade Records and earned international acclaim, and Katie found herself playing notable festivals such as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Festival, and Lollapalooza, as well as playing late night slots on David Letterman and Conan. Katie co-wrote the song "Sedona," which reached number 1 on Billboards AAA chart. She released two records with Houndmouth and toured internationally up until her departure from the band in March 2016. Now, with "Moroccan Ballroom," Katie embarks on her next chapter with more soulfulness and freedom than ever before.

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

Wild Manes EP Release, hunter & wolfe – Mercury Lounge
March 23, 2018 – New York

Wild Manes is a 6-piece band from Brooklyn featuring the voices Lindsey Nadolski, Heather Knowles and Jocelyn Conn. Mixing elements of folk, soul and indie with three-part harmony and crunchy guitars, the band walks the line between danceable energy, dynamic introspection, and stuff your mom would probably clean the house to.
Brooklyn-based duo hunter & wolfe often wrap their vulnerable lyrical content in sarcasm and loud indie-rock stylings. They've been compared to Arcade Fire, Jeff Buckley, and "Coldplay meets arena rock". They're not sure what that means, either.
Vocalist Michael Maffei and guitarist Sundeep Kapur ensure that their messages about complacency, lost love, and the paradox of choice in the modern era reflect both a seriousness and the self-awareness to not take themselves too seriously.

The Jews of Key West – 92Y
March 23, 2018 – Upper East Side

As American immigration laws prohibited Jews from entering the United States during the 1920s, thousands of Jewish migrants became refugees in Cuba, where authorities looked the other way as smugglers transported them to Key West by any means necessary.
Bar owners, boat captains, costume artists, counterfeiters, immigration officials, a rabbi and even a traveling carnival company joined forces to reunite Jewish families and save the lives threatened by racist American laws. Their actions inspired Ernest Hemingway's novel To Have and Have Not and pitted them against powerful local officials who belonged to the Ku Klux Klan. This talk illuminates the clandestine acts and secret societies of an era that bears striking similarities to our own.

The Cover of Life – Gene Frankel Theatre
March 23, 2018 – New York

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

Women's History Museum – Performance Space New York
March 23, 2018 – New York

Harnessing a combination of thrift store finds and individual customizations, the DIY look that originated from downtown NYC was first broadcast by MTV in 1981, and quickly influenced how young people were dressing all around the world. As youth culture is now instantly co-opted as marketable fashion, the idiosyncratic designs of multifarious fashion-oriented project, Women's History Museum, present a counter cultural form of self-expression that resists mainstreaming. Founded by Amanda K McGowan and Mattie Rivkah Barringer in 2014, the collective stages an extended theatrical runway presentation of their latest collection.

Pregame Your Brain: Are You Smarter Than a 6th Grader? – Caveat
March 23, 2018 – New York

Get some post-work drinks in your face, and some brand new knowledge in your brain! Several stations of experts on the week's theme will be set up around the bar – grab a drink, and choose your own adventure. Each expert has a 10 minute speed-lesson, so you can get the basics or go deep. Each week features experts on a different topic, so come back next week for all-new stuff!
This week – Are you Smarter Than a 6th Grader? *Hosted by SOWING*
Scientists all over New York City are desperately trying to make our fellow New Yorkers more science-literate. For some of us, it's even a full-time job. It's hard work, and so we have recently joined forces as SOWING (Science Outreach Working to Inspire the Next Generation). Typically, SOWING members are focused on grade school students, whose minds are more malleable than the average adult. For this one night, we turn our attention to you — and ask, 'Are YOU smarter than a 6th grader' (at least when it comes to basic science)? How about after a few beers?

3D Thursdays! 3D Printing and Hacking – Fat Cat Fab Lab
March 23, 2018 – New York

So… there has been a lot of fuss about this desktop 3D printing revolution thing for a while now. Still very exciting!
We have a new-old idea that leaps beyond the news hype and celebrates the wonder of the activity itself. Let's get together every Thursday evening to explore this broad field, in all of its many facets and manifestations. And get to know each other better — from bold pioneers, to new adopters, from teachers to students, manufacturing experts, to code and electronics hackers. This is your space to grow and share.
Topics we might explore on a typical Thursday evening include:
– 3D design software and techniques. From getting started, to pushing boundaries.
– Explore more of the 3D ecosystem, from making use of 3D printing service bureaus to starting and managing your 3D Hub.
– How to prototype and develop your own physical products, tools, and artwork.
– 3D printing materials: strategies for fabricating in more than just 1-2 plastics.
– Casting and mold-making: from precious metals to candy bars.
– Finishing techniques. Sanding, painting, sealing, melting, deforming, decorating, hydro-printing…. Why just make things that look like plastic?
Let's spend time together sorting out better ways to use these tools, and better ways to design.
– Please RSVP to attend.
* Meetup events at Fat Cat Fab Lab are for members of the Fat Cat Fab Lab Meetup Group only.

AdHoc Presents Men I Trust – Baby's All Right
March 23, 2018 – Brooklyn

Men I Trust is an indie-dance band from Quebec City (Canada).
Bio:
Jessy and Dragos knew each other since their fourth year of high school. Back then (mid-2000's), Dragos had somewhat of a background in classical piano and Jessy mastered the dark and esoteric art of the metal guitar solist.
In 2012, while finishing his master's degree in audio postproduction at Laval University with S. Lacasse, S. Stévance and S. Samson, Dragos spent most of his days and sleeping hours at the "LARC" studio working on his solo projects. He randomly met Jessy again, who was finishing his bachelor degree in Jazz guitar, in one of the faculty's hallways and talked about doing a French-Touch / Italo-Disco track together. Some weeks later, they did just that. And it worked out so well that they decided to extend their collaboration to a whole project where many singers would be involved.

K2 Lounge DJ Ankia – Rubin Museum of Art
March 23, 2018 – New York

Phil Pickens – Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
March 23, 2018 – New York

On the heels of NPR's tiny desk contest, Bob Boilen (NPR) and Rita Houston (WFUV) invited Phil Pickens and his band the Astronauts to play the legendary Hit Factory in the heart of NYC. NPR Music recalls his sound as "big-hearted" and "rootsy".
There's a push-pull in everything Phil Pickens says and doesn't say, in what he sings and doesn't sing. "The words I do not say speak louder than I want them to," he sings in "Fool's Gold." Born and raised in Georgia, his crooked smile and royal blue eyes perfectly embody the double edge of kindness and menace in southern hospitality. Pickens has a bracing, expressive voice and a style that blends folk sensibilities and contemporary indie rock.

The Soul Rebels with Special Guests to Be Announced! – Brooklyn Bowl
March 23, 2018 – Brooklyn

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.
The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

Tastings @ OSH: Rum & Revolution – The Old Stone House
March 23, 2018 – Brooklyn

No one knows who first noticed that molasses, a by-product of the sugar making process, could be fermented to generate alcohol, but the breakthrough may have occurred on Barbados. There, in 1647, Richard Ligon attended a party at which he was treated to a feast that included suckling pig, pineapple, and a throat-searing drink known as "kill-devil," an early moniker for Rum.
By the 18th century, American colonists were not only importing rum; they were distilling their own, and rum became a foundational element of the Triangle Trade. By 1770, there were apparently more than 150 rum distilleries in New England. Colonists were importing 6.5 million gallons of West Indian molasses and turning it into five million gallons of rum. One estimate from the time of the Revolutionary War puts American rum consumption at nearly four gallons per person per year. Rum distillation continued to be big business in America until 1808 when the U.S. prohibited the importation of slaves from Africa, and the Triangle Trade was broken.
Drawing on West African traditions, enslaved people in the Caribbean integrated rum into resistance efforts during the Age of Revolution. The social and spiritual meanings of alcohol were modified and revived on the sugar estates, and rum-based oath drinks cemented alliances, so rum also offers a view into the revolutionary uprisings that accelerated the emancipation of enslaved peoples throughout the Atlantic world.

Erin Courtney's 'A Map of Virtue' – Brooklyn College Department of Theater
March 23, 2018 – Brooklyn

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

Miguel, SiR, Nonchalant Savant – Terminal 5
March 23, 2018 – New York

Over the last decade, Miguel's established himself as one of R&B's most sonic fabulists, a consummate artist unafraid to follow his impulses wherever they lead him. His fourth studio full-length, War & Leisure, is his most ambitious and stunning project yet, a perfect blend of forward-thinking production and melodic delights that more than embody the duality hinted at in the album's title. This is Miguel fusing the two halves of his creative i —the restless experimentalist and the crowd-pleasing hit maker that millions of fans adore—to reach a new peak in artistic achievement.
Following the mind-blowing and thoroughly sensual Wildheart in 2015, Miguel conceived War & Leisure's twelve pop gems over the course of the last year and a half—a process that allowed him to find himself amidst the increasing chaos of the modern world. "It's my best way of describing the now," he explains when discussing the album's yin-and-yang title, which reflects the music's focus on the passion and pain of everyday life. "Anything that's in my conscious world, and what's feeding my subconscious—it's all war and leisure."
What resulted in these sessions is an album that finds Miguel perfectly blending the skyward pop of 2012's Kaleidoscope Dream and the restless, moody vibes of Wildheart—reflecting the true Miguel experience for both listeners and the album's creator.

Orny Adams – Levity Live
March 23, 2018 – West Nyack

American comic Orny Adams first rose to international prominence after co-starring in Jerry Seinfeld's documentary "Comedian." He has made several appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2010, Orny followed up his critically acclaimed debut comedy DVD/CD "Path Of Most Resistance," with a powerful and poignant one hour special "Orny Adams Takes The Third" which aired on Comedy Central. Currently, Orny can be seen playing the iconic role "Coach Finstock" on the hit MTV show "Teen Wolf," a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind's Jeff Davis. Jeff handpicked Orny for the role after seeing him at the Hollywood Improv.
Early in his career Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the "go to" guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on Letterman. In 2010, Orny was thrilled to return to the festival in Montreal working alongside one of his favorite comedians Steve Martin on a taped televised stand up show Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a "Stand-out act" by The Hollywood Reporter.

Sound Barrier. 2005. Directedby Amir Naderi Entezar (Waiting). 1974. Written And Directed By Amir Naderi – The Museum of Modern Art

Through a Glass, Darkly – The Museum of Modern Art
March 23, 2018 – Manhattan

Program 76 min.
The program's opening film is a radical statement of the edgy terrain and industrial subcultures represented throughout this eclectic grouping. The Wound's surrealistic, progressively abstracted images of female body parts, and its transgressive voiceover, were created by Jill Westwood, a member of the noise band Fistfuck who also ran an S&M fetish stall in Kensington Market. Some of the experimental works that follow mine cinema history, as in Cordelia Swann's feminist, dreamy video reworking of the Douglas Sirk melodrama All That Heaven Allows. Others, including Richard Heslop (working with the avant-funk band 23 Skidoo) and Holly Warburton (who mixed Super8, video, and tape loops in her romantic tryptic), engage expanded cinema presentations of multiple projection and music. The body remains a site for wide-ranging investigations: Fashion photographer Michael Kostiff combines delicately distorted Super8 images of John Maybury in ballet-like poses with the glow of a sea of television monitors, while Japanese-born video artist Akiko Hada uses her body as an element within an assemblage of text, mystical imagery, and industrial sounds. Others bring nature into the metaphysical recasting of bodily experiences: Jennifer Binnie weaves together bucolic images of Grayson Perry with a Velvet Underground soundtrack, while Judith Goddard hints at more existential themes with analog video effects that bleed public, private, ecological, and meditative visions into one.

Robin Trower – Concert Hall at NY Society for Ethical Culture
March 23, 2018 – New York

The Robin Trower story started in the mid Sixties when he began his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band The Paramounts. But the first time Trower pinged on rock'n'roll's radar was in 1967, with Procol Harum – house band of the Summer of Love. Though he did not play on their mega-hit 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale', he completed five albums and many tours with them before breaking away for a solo career in 1971.
Robin admits that 'the big break for me was Gary Brooker getting me to join Procol. That opened up the whole world. Without that I would never been able to go on and do what I've done.' He rates leaving PH 'the best career decision I ever made'
Trower modelled his own band on the power-trio blueprint of Cream and Taste, and, of course, the Jimi Hendrix Experience. His atmospheric, effects-laden Stratocastering brought inevitable initial comparisons with Hendrix, but he quickly made his own mark. Robin along with the vocal talents of James Dewar, a hard-living Scot, whose voice will always be associated with the Robin Trower Band proved to be a musical powerhouse.
Robin soon found himself outselling Procol by a considerable factor as he tuned in to the heavier zeitgeist of a new decade, his second album, 'Bridge Of Sighs' reached the Top 10 in the States. This collection of songs is in every budding guitarslinger's reference library, and has Influenced a generation of musicians.
The success of Bridge of Sighs gave Robin the freedom to explore his musical limits. "In City Dreams" and "Caravan to Midnight" ( both produced by Don Davis) demonstrated Robin's maturing song writing abilities and strong connection to the Blues.

Cory Morrow – Hill Country
March 23, 2018 – NY

Redemption through music is something Cory Morrow knows well after surviving nearly two decades in the rough and tumble music business. Battles with personal and professional demons inform Morrow's music in a manner that many performers don't have the experience to draw from. His wide ranging life experiences allow him to be a consummate singer/songwriter. He has the ability to write a tale about heartbreak as effortlessly as he can pen one about a carefree goodtime. That truth and authenticity is balanced by his infectious optimism and excitable personality.
A native of Houston, Morrow began playing guitar at a young age, but did not get serious about his music until attending college in Lubbock. Here, he was inspired by Texas songwriting greats like Robert Earl Keen and Townes Van Zandt. Spurred by this musical inspiration and a youthful vigor, Morrow moved to Austin in the early 90's to build his own career. Amidst a sea of night clubs featuring line dancing and Nashville hat acts dominating radio playlists, Morrow set about creating personal music that harkened back to the heyday of Willie Nelson's progressive country movement in the 70's.
Through several years of breakneck touring that featured Morrow's special brand of emotional and energetic live performances, he began to develop a large grassroots following. Coupled with the release of several successful independent albums and Morrow was really beginning to make a name for himself around Texas. By 1999, the music he was making with peers like Pat Green and Owen Temple was becoming a booming cottage industry and gaining nationwide notice. An acclaimed double album and a duets record with Green cemented Morrow's place in Lone Star lore.

The Soul Rebels featuring Curren$y + more special guests to be announced! – Brooklyn Bowl
March 23, 2018 – Brooklyn

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.

Now with two hour standup specials and his own late-night TV series coming up, Ari is a "gifted comic unyielding in his art," becoming "a real force to be reckoned with" (LA Weekly).
Ari's second hour standup special Paid Regular premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. His first hour special, Passive Aggressive, premiered on Chill.com in 2013 and premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. His standup album Revenge for the Holocaust was released in 2012 and went to number 1 on iTunes and amazon.com the week of its premiere. Ari's weekly story-telling series This Is Not Happening premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. The show, which originally debuted as a web series on CC.com, features Shaffir and his comedian friends telling hilarious and true stories in front of a live audience at LA's most distinguished gentlemen's club, Cheetahs. Season 2 of This Is Not Happening will premiere in 2016 and it was recently picked up for a third season on Comedy Central.

Prurience – Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
March 24, 2018 – New York

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

Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny – SOPAC
March 24, 2018 – South Orange

Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals. Before his bedtime, the rabbit goes around the room and notices items within eye sight and says goodnight to all of them. As the story continues, the rabbit gets more and more tired before finally saying "Goodnight noises everywhere," just as he falls asleep.
The Runaway Bunny is the tale of a little bunny who tells his mother that he is going to run away, becoming variously a fish, a rock on the mountain, a crocus in a hidden garden, a bird, a sailboat, a circus acrobat, and finally a little boy, until he resigns himself to stay where he is and remain her little bunny. Whimsical puppetry and evocative original music will bring a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations.
Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny
A Production of the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
Based on stories by Margaret Wise Brown
Illustrated by Clement Hurd
Adaptation by Jim Morrow

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound – Lincoln Center
Through March 24, 2018 – Bronx

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.

Lettuce with The Motet – The Capitol Theatre
March 24, 2018 – Port Chester

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

Piano Men: A Tribute to Elton John & Billy Joel – Queensborough Performing Arts Center
March 24, 2018 – Bayside

Love conquers death in the ultimate Romantic ballet. Since its premiere in 1841, Giselle has captured the imagination and torn at the heart. The Russian-based collective Moscow Festival Ballet performing Giselle brings an evening of dance, drama, and beauty to the stage.  Moscow Festival Ballet merges the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies. A village girl falls in love with a man who is not all he seems. When she finds out his deception, she dies of a broken heart. Transformed into a spirit, she battles to save her lover in the woods haunted by the ghosts of jilted women. For the ballerina, it offers a career-making opportunity to show off not just technique but emotional range. Yearning, madness, supernatural forces and transcendent, redemptive love: Giselle is the Romantic era crystallized in one perfect work of art. "Phenomenal, dramatic impact." – NY Times.

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

EDDIE SANTIAGO, born in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico, began performing at a young age and spent two years with El Conjunto Chaney, singing the band’s hit “Detalles.” Going solo and forming his own band in 1986, he gained international acclaim with “Lluvia,” which went to the top of the charts and helped spawn the Tropical music sub-genre of salsa romántica. His success continued with such hits as “Tu me quemas,” “Antídoto y veneno,” “Que locura enamorarme de tí,” and “Insaciable.” Between the mid-‘80s and the early ‘90s, six of Santiago’s albums reached #1 on the Tropical music charts. His romantic lyrics combined with his sensual interpretation and melodious voice has made him one of the most popular salseros of all time. He has released over 25 albums, many of which have gone gold and platinum. In 1999 he released Celebration: Epic Duets, joined by Latin music stars Victor Manuelle, Huey Dunbar and Elvis Crespo. The album was named one of the best recordings of 1999 by the National Foundation for Popular Culture. His 2004 CD Después del silencio, nominated for a GRAMMY in the Tropical Music” category, produced five radio hits: “Loco por tu amor,” “No me hables mal de ella,” “Falsa,” “Todavía hay swing” and “Llover sobre mojado.” Santiago’s latest CD is 2011’s Reyes de la Salsa with Lalo Rodríguez.
PAQUITO GUZMÁN, one of the greatest Salsa Romántica vocalists, was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico. In 1959, at the age of twenty, he moved to the Bronx, NY, and went to work in a record shop, hoping to make connections in the music industry. Less than a year later he met Joe Quijano who hired him as the lead singer for his Caribbean pachanga band Joint Cachana, that also included Bobby Valentín on trumpet. Within three years, Joint Cachana recorded seven albums with Guzmán as vocalist including Dance to the Bossa Nova, the Mambo, the Cha Cha Cha and The World’s Most Exciting Latin American Orchestra and Revue, the latter record selling 1,000 copies in the first 6 months alone and has become a cult classic often referred to as “The Nostros Album”. Firmly established as a bolerista in the new “salsa” movement, Guzmán returned to Puerto Rico in 1962 to sing vocals with Chamaco Ramirez in the Tommy Olivencia band, recording seven albums. Mintiendo Se Gana Mas (1977) marked his first of over twenty albums as a solo artist, and during the 1980’s he was widely popular singing in the Salsa Romántica style reaching a high point in sales with his 1986 album Salsa The Best Ballads. In 1994 he released Oro Salsero which featured the hit songs “25 Rosas”, “Y Es Que Llegaste Tú”, and “Vivir A Solas”. And in 1999, Los Mejores Baladas en Salsa, an album of popular ballads translated into slow tempo salsa was debuted, which included the hits “Esa Mujer” and “Ser Amantes”. 2008 saw the release of Guzmán’s well regarded album The Greatest Salsa Ever and his latest record, Iconos: 25 Exitos, was released in 2013.
JOHNNY RIVERA is an American salsa singer of Puerto Rican descent that was born and raised in the Bronx. Influenced by his uncle, salsa vocalist Adalberto Santiago, he briefly moved to Puerto Rico after graduating high school, and began singing with a local salsa group. Returning to New York City, Rivera began studying music and singing techniques with Johnny Colón’s Orchestra and famous East Harlem Music School, and he also joined his Uncle Adalberto’s orchestra. His recording debut came in a 1983 compilation album called Noche Caliente-II, singing "Terciopelo y Piedra". Rivera then joined one of the most popular orchestras of the time, Grupo Fascinación for four years, recording three albums with them: Fascinating Sounds (1983), Tiburón (1985) and Salsa Vice (1986). Leaving to be the lead singer for Conjunto Clasico, he sang on two of that group’s albums, Clásico 88 (1988), and Más Clásico Que Nunca (1989). Going solo in 1991, he released Y Ahora de Verdad, which was recorded in New York and Puerto Rico, produced by Sergio George, and reached #5 on the Billboard Tropical Album chart. Rivera’s sensitive approach to romantic salsa material, as evidenced by the hit "Necesito Una Amiga", his cover of Frankie Valli’s “My Eyes Adored You”, and the popular salsa versions of "Esa Chica Es Mia" and "Como Fui A Enamorarme De Ti", was well received. His second album, Encuentro Casual (1992), featured the songs "Loco de Amor", "Te Regalaré", and "Lo Mejor de Mi". Then in 1993, he released Cuando Parara La Lluvia, which included three hit singles- "Cuando Parara La Lluvia", "Por Eso Esta Conmigo", and "Voy a Conquistar tu Amor", rose to #11 on the Billboard Tropical Album chart, went Platinum, and Rivera was awarded the 1994 Paoli Prize for Album of the Year and the Diplo Prize for Orquesta Revelación del Año. Over the years, Rivera has continued to successfully record, both as a solo artist and in collaboration with greats such as Humberto Ramírez, Ray Sepúlveda, Jerry Rivera, Tito Nieves, Isidro Infantes, Charlie Aponte, India, Domingo Quiñones, Tito Puente, Herb Albert, Tony Vega, and Marc Anthony. Rivera’s latest releases are El Noble de la Salsa (2011) and 2016’s Salsa Legends, which rose to #7 on the Billboard Tropical Album chart.

Our Jazz for Young People series continues with an hour-long, interactive celebration of composer, arranger, and pianist Mary Lou Williams (1910–1981).

Her music was truly as adventurous as her personality, and you will be fascinated to discover her influence on several generations of creative jazz musicians. In this fun concert experience, you will come to understand what made Williams' piano playing so special and entertaining. A professional player by age seven, Williams charged headfirst into the music world, outplayed her male contemporaries, and quickly emerged as a composer and arranger they simply needed to hire. By her early 20s, she was arranging music for Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Benny Goodman.
Hosting this event is Grammy Award-nominee Catherine Russell, who joined us last season to host Who is Louis Armstrong? She'll be joined by energetic drummer LaFrae Sci with additional band members to be announced.

On the occasion of the work's appearance at the Whitney, a range of voices will reflect on Strange Fruit and its multiple historical inflections, its relevance and resonance today, and its very specific material existence.
Speakers include Gregg Bordowitz, Jonah Groeneboer, Katherine Hubbard, Fred Moten, Cameron Rowland, and Christian Scheidemann. Elisabeth Sherman, Assistant Curator, moderates the conversation.
Tickets are required ($10 adults; $8 members, students, and seniors). Members: please log in to reserve tickets.

Paul de Jong / Jessica Pavone String Ensemble – Issue Project Room
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

Saturday, March 24th, ISSUE is pleased to present an evening with Paul de Jong, cellist and co-founder of celebrated experimental duo the Books, and composer and violist Jessica Pavone's String Ensemble. Their distinct approaches survey de Jong's distinctly hybrid and emotionally-driven cello music, to Pavone's uniquely physical compositions — each devising progressive and idiosyncratic new practices for string instruments.
On the eve of the release of his sophomore solo album YOU FUCKEN SUCKER, Paul de Jong performs his signature emotional acrobatics with the aid of cellos, or "what used to be cellos," in addition to a bottomless library of exotic americana, absurdist sound and video snippets, mismatched costumes and hats, fake teeth and moustaches — all purposefully over-formalized and under-rehearsed. Taken as a whole, De Jong's resultant sound, according to critic Andy Beta, takes "cues from old folk records, as well as the mischievous collage work of Christian Marclay and Negativland — with results that sound disarming and fresh, like folk music rendered by intellectual androids."

Zigzag Through Harlem – The Municipal Art Society of NY
March 24, 2018 – New York

"There is so much to see in Harlem!" Langston Hughes' apt quote kicks off a decidedly quirky overview tour. Walking between Harlem's visceral and commercial main streets–from 135th Street down to 125th Street–the tour takes several cues from the subject of Eric's upcoming biography of James H. Williams (1878-1948): once Chief of Grand Central Terminal's army of "Red Caps," a role that made him an influential force of the Harlem Renaissance. Waypoints reflecting Harlem as a varying seat of Victorian gentility, African-American migration, Jazz-age jive and current gentrification may include such sites and themes as the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture; WPA-era art projects; the exuberant, and often gender-bending performance scene; the Harlem YMCA; Strivers' Row; New Amsterdam Musical Association; Astor Row, Apollo Theatre and scads more.

Porches, Girl Ray, Palberta – The Bowery Ballroom
March 24, 2018 – New York

Early on his third record as Porches, The House, Aaron Maine outlines his rifting desires: "I don't wanna leave you out/I just wanna leave the house." Though the debate is seemingly simple (the classic "should I stay or should I go" scenario), at the crux of the sentiment is an urgent need to exit the comfort of domesticity and be one's own person. The House is driven by this urge to step back and reconcile with oneself. Whether examining identity through a relationship, more…

Interested in music from his early childhood, Foose was recording lyrics by the time he was 12 and eventually took on the Lil Skies moniker when he began taking his music more seriously. When he was enrolled in Shippensburg University, he dropped out to focus as his fan base grew exponentially.By this time he was performing regularly, even opening for rap sensations like Fetty Wap, among others. He released several singles and videos, notably "Signs of Jealousy", which caught the attention of Atlantic Records.

Sebastian Noelle's Shelter – Cornelia Street Cafe
March 24, 2018 – New York

Guitarist-composer Sebastian Noelle has spent much of his life traveling the elusive path between two worlds. In life, he travels back and forth between his native Germany and his adopted home of New York City; in his art, he navigates the more fluid boundaries between the abstract and the emotional. Throughout that nomadic existence, music has provided a constant source of shelter, an idea that unifies the wide-ranging music on Noelle's third CD.
On Shelter, Noelle leads a stellar quintet that brings together some of the most forward-thinking and limitless musicians in modern jazz: saxophonist Marc Mommaas (Amina Figarova, Armen Donelian), pianist Matt Mitchell (Dave Douglas, Tim Berne), bassist Matt Clohesy (Seamus Blake, Darcy James Argue, Donny McCaslin), and drummer Dan Weiss (Rudresh Mahanthappa, Dave Binney).
"A guitarist probably best known for his integral role in Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, Mr. Noelle has a rewarding new album, "Shelter," that showcases his embrace of both lyrical intricacies and rockish swagger" – Nate Chinen (New York Times)

Nai-Ni Chen to Premiere A Quest for Freedom at NJPAC – New Jersey Performing Arts Center NJPAC
Through March 24, 2018 – Newark

Nai-Ni Chen to Premiere
A Quest for Freedom at NJPAC
Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 7:30PM
And at NextDance Festival in Philadelphia's Prince Theatre
In this 2018 Women's History Month of March, NJPAC will premiere Nai-Ni Chen's latest collaboration with the world renowned Ahn Trio in a new, groundbreaking dance production, A Quest for Freedom. A program that highlights the hope and quest for freedom in every aspects of the artist's life and only highlighted by the current societal, national, international and historical debate around immigration. Following the NJPAC premiere, the new work will premiere at Philadelphia's NextDance Festival from Fri-Sun, April 20, 21, 22, 2018 at the Prince Theatre.
 
Originally inspired by Ahn Trio's adaptation of David Bowie's Space Oddity and the their performance of the Trio's version of Purple Rain by Prince on Ellis Island's Great Hall of Immigration, Nai-Ni Chen continued to work with the Trio throughout 2017 to find their common vision, exploring their common roots as Asian American immigrants, and as women artists developing innovative work in America.  Their collaboration is enhanced by the work of visual artist Jayathi Moorthy, who brings a contemporary, visual artist perspective to the project.
 
The new production will feature new music created especially for Nai-Ni Chen, Concrete Stream as well as Night Flight by Kenji Bunch, Insensatez by Astor Piazzola and popular music adaptations for classical instruments by David Bowie and Prince.  For each of these music, Nai-Ni Chen created new dances titled:  I want to Fly, Liberation, Lonely Man, A Forgotten Past, and My Flower Garden, each dance explores part of her journey as an immigrant woman artist who view freedom from different lances here in America.  Lighting Designer Yi-Chung Chen, Visual Designer Jayanthi Moorthy and Costume Designer Ann-Alisa Belous are all deeply involved in the making of the production.
 
About A Quest for Freedom
An empowering evening of music and dance, A Quest for Freedom is a music and dance collaboration between the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company and the world renowned Ahn Trio. The athletic physicality of seven exquisite dancers, mesmerizing choreography of Nai-Ni Chen combined with the virtuosity of the Ahn Trio are integrated seamlessly throughout the program.
 
In this production, the Ahn Trio performs their most popular and engaging music, including their sassy, classical version of Purple Rain by the Prince, Space Oddity by David Bowie, Night Flight by Kenji Bunch, among others. The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company also commissioned new music from composer Kenji Bunch. Concrete Stream with passages that allow dancers to interact with musicians.
 
About Concrete Stream
Composer's notes "Concrete Stream" usually refers to an artificial trickle of
water in a backyard garden- essentially an elaborate home improvement project. Perhaps a more poetic interpretation of the term could suggest the paradox between the organic and man-made; the struggle for the existence of fluidity and natural beauty in an urban, industrial context. This work explores these two conflicting concepts, by incorporating elements of "floating" melody, free from traditionally notated rhythms, juxtaposed with the insistent inflexibility of repetitive motives. -Kenji Bunch
About The Ahn Trio
Hailed as "exciting musicians" with virtuosity and flair, the three sisters of the Ahn Trio (Lucia on the piano, Angella on the violin and Maria on the cello) have embraced 21st century classical music while redefining the art of chamber music. Born in Seoul, Korea and educated at the Julliard School in New York City, the Ahn Trio brings a new energy and an ever evolving vision of music to the performance stage, whether it be Vienna's Musikverein, New York's Lincoln Center, Beijing's Concert Hall or The White House. In this innovative collaboration with Asian-American choreographer, Nai Ni Chen, the world-class dance company and trio are immersed in the visual element of the pieces, creating a mesmerizing blend of music and dance of sheer aural and visual beauty.
 
About the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company
Bringing the dynamic freedom of American modern dance together with the elegant splendor of Asian art, the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company is one of the most visible Asian American dance companies in America.  Ms. Chen's unique choreography transports audiences beyond cultural boundaries to the common ground between tradition and innovation, rising beyond form into the  spirit.

John Witherspoon Headlines Gotham Comedy Club – Gotham Comedy Club
Through March 24, 2018 – New York

You probably remember John Witherspoon as Ice Cube’s outrageously funny, dog-catching dad in New Line Cinema’s smash urban trilogy “Friday,” “Next Friday” & “Friday After Next,” or as “Pops” on the long-running syndicated sitcom “The Wayans Brothers”… or currently as Lloyd on Adult Swim’s “Black Jesus.” His scene-stealing roles in “Boomerang,” “Little Nicky,” “House Party,” “Vampire in Brooklyn” and “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka,” made him one of the most memorable funny men in America. Not only does Witherspoon’s work span over four decades to include blockbuster movies, hit-television shows, commercials and top-rated music videos, but he is also a top selling stand up act who regularly tours the country. The Detroit-bred comic has proven that he is a Hollywood mainstay and continues to land coveted spots in some of America’s favorite movies and television shows.

The Soul Rebels with Special Guests to Be Announced! – Brooklyn Bowl
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.
The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

Lost Leaders plus Patrick Collins – Daryl's House Club
March 24, 2018 – Pawling

When we left off the first Lost Leaders record was just released. This was in 2014 before the country went mad. That record did things for us. Our song "I'm Gonna Win" was on radio stations around the country and on several year-end top song lists. We played many an on-air concert singing into foam cylinders suspended on desk-lamp arms under florescent lights. It got us into some great publications like Relix, No Depression and The Huffington Post and on A-sides with John Chattman so we got our origin story down pat. And we're sticking to it. Most importantly it got us in front of thousands of people including a sold out show at The Capitol Theatre.

Erin Courtney's 'A Map of Virtue' – Brooklyn College Department of Theater
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

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

Lettuce with The Motet ft. Nate Werth on percussion – The Capitol Theatre
Through March 24, 2018 – Port Chester

For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. Now, on their fourth studio album Crush, drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick "Jesus" Coomes, keyboardist Neal Evans, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet player Eric Bloom deepen that sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show.
Produced by Lettuce and Co- Produced, recorded/mixed by Joel Hamilton at Brooklyn's Studio G, Crush first came to life on the road, with the band developing new material and testing it out live as they toured. "We've all noticed that our music goes into a lot of different directions onstage, and we wanted to capture that in a way that we never really have before," says Coomes, who names classic psychedelia and '90s hip-hop among Lettuce's key inspirations on Crush. "It's definitely more wide-open in terms style, but it still stays true to the funk."
The follow-up to 2012's Fly, Crush finds Lettuce brilliantly infusing their psychedelic and hip-hop sensibilities into bass-heavy funk. With its spidery guitar work and hypnotic beats, "Phyllis" is a delicately sprawling epic that embodies what Deitch refers to as "a chill-hop vibe that's kind of the flip-side of all that powerful uptempo funk that people might expect from us." On "Get Greasy," Lettuce give a nod to the groove-fueled EDM subgenre known as future funk, building off its highly danceable rhythm with a blissfully loose and horn-laced arrangement. And on "He Made a Woman Out of Me," guest vocalist Alecia Chakour lends her bluesy growl to a scorching take on Bobbie Gentry's 1970 country-soul classic.

To Fire and Surprise: Making New Poems with R.A. Villanueva – Poets House
March 24, 2018 – New York

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

Lettuce with The Motet Pre-Show: DJ Jazzy Jay – The Capitol Theatre
March 24, 2018 – Port Chester

THE ORIGINAL JAZZY JAY began his illustrious career playing in the streets of the Bronx, under the guidance of Afrika Bambaataa. During the 80's club revolution, Jazzy went from performing on the streets and in small clubs spinning records in NYC's hottest clubs: Negril, The Roxy, The Ritz, and Danceteria.
He was one of the first to bring Hip Hop music to the airwaves on KISS FM. Jazzy's three hour show grew so popular that it was eventually syndicated on Europe's Radio One broadcast.
With the Jazzy 5, he recorded the hit single: "Jazzy Sensation". He was propelled to stardom when he co-produced the seminal hit "Planet Rock" with Afrika Bambaataa and The Soul Sonic Force. Jazzy Jay played the role of club DJ in the Hip Hop classic, Beat Street, and he also contributed to the movie's soundtrack.
It is a little known fact that Afrika Islam and Jazzy Jay pioneered the first DJ team routines as they used to team up to battle Grandmaster Flash (solo) and GrandWizzard Theodore (solo). Jazzy Jay was also a Zulu King B-Boy in the early 70's.
Jazzy Jay was a co-founder of Def Jam records along with Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons. He appeared on T La Rock's "It's Yours". While with Def Jam, Jazzy worked with such artists as LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy. Jazzy Jay also put out the 3rd Def Jam 12" in 1985 called "Def Jam" b/w "Cold Chillin' In The Spot" with Russell Simmons on vocals.
Jazzy furthered his producing and engineering skills when he founded Jazzy Jay's Studio, providing a place where Fat Joe, Brand Nubian, A Tribe Called Quest, among others could begin their careers.
Jazzy began a new label with Rocky Bucano and Strong City records was born. Strong City produced a multitude of hits with Ice Cream Tee, Masters of Ceremony, Busy Bee, Don Baron and many more. He is currently releasing the Strong City catalog through Traffic Distribution. Jazzy was inducted into the Technics/DMC DJ Hall of Fame in 2000. He is featured in the DJ documentary Scratch (Palm Pictures) as well as Scratch: All The Way Live and has headlined Scratch tours since the movie's release.

57 Varieties: Curated By Tessa Hughes-freeland – The Museum of Modern Art
March 24, 2018 – Manhattan

"In addition to the gore and schlock films screened at Club 57 there were also numerous film nights showcasing short films. These usually consisted of a variety of genres as well as gauges of films: projected from the back of the room onto a screen set up on the small stage. The audience sat on a roughly strewn arrangement of folding chairs or stood at the bar. In such a loosely structured, intimate environment, which was low on pressure and high on fun, the inevitable reel changes and downtime left plenty of time for the filmmakers and the audience to hang out and chat. As well as attending film screenings at the club, a film club that I was involved in, called the Reel Club, had to change venues from Danceteria, so the move to Club 57 was a logical one. This program includes films that were shown at the Reel Club as well as films that were first screened at Club 57, or by filmmakers who were regular participants in the film events that took place there. A mixture of animation and live action and a certain commentary on contemporary culture, these films represent the breadth of irony, which was crucial to the core of a Club 57 aesthetic" (Tessa Hughes-Freeland).

The City with Rigoberto Gonzalez – Poets House
March 24, 2018 – New York

Lambda Award-winning poet Rigoberto González considers five poems that explore the city. As the bittersweet symbol of order and chaos, progress and decay, community and overcrowding, the city is both beacon and demon—a landscape of possibility where dreams are born and where dreams transform or die. González examines a range of poetic representations of the city and civilization and how, over centuries, this manmade space continues to mirror human joy and anxiety. These poems help us understand the powers of the city—the greatest archive of memory, history and story.

In the Body of the World – New York City Center – Stage 1
Through March 24, 2018 – New York

Louis Cato & Friends – Highline Ballroom
Through March 24, 2018 – New York

Portuguese-born, Carolina-bred, and current Brooklyn, NY resident Louis Cato is no stranger to planes, tour buses, recording studios, TV sets, liner-notes, and airwaves. He's a Grammy-nominated and internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, producer, and songwriter. He has recorded with Beyonce, Q-tip, John Legend and Mariah Carey, among other household names. He has toured with some of the most influential acts in music, such as Bobby McFerrin, Snarky Puppy, Marcus Miller, John Scofield, David Sanborn, and George Duke. Currently, Cato is featured nightly on CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" as a member of Jon Batiste and Stay Human.
Cato completed two semesters at Berklee College of Music, but his education and influence is deeply rooted in the gospel and contemporary Christian genres. He was raised in a musical household, drumming by age two and learning wind instruments by age twelve. Much as the Beatles are known for honing their skills during their multi-hour multi-day residencies in London pubs, Cato mastered his bass, drum, and guitar chops during a five-year period of nightly performances in the underground jazz and soul scene in Boston. It was in 2007 at the North Sea Jazz Festival where Cato first met Marcus Miller and a slew of other heavyweights he would eventually work with.

Spirit Of The Eighties: Curated By Tessa Hughes-freeland – The Museum of Modern Art
March 24, 2018 – Manhattan

"The films in this program represent a number of different stylistic tendencies in filmmaking which coexisted during the 1980s, in an environment where films were screened in clubs along with performances and live music, and often on the same night. The fluidity of performers, filmmakers, and musicians collaborating created a particularly vibrant and unique element of nightlife. Influences including music videos and topical news stories, comedies and the carnivalesque, mythic or gothic horror films, occult and pseudoscientific explorations, the use of found footage, and of course investigations of the body—including pushing the boundaries of physical extremes—were all prevalent. The DIY aesthetic was an essential part in the working process, which would also manifest itself as an intuitive sense of urgent and confusing creativity at a time when the shadow of a spectre, which eventually destroyed a huge swath of the community, was running rampant" (Tessa Hughes-Freeland).

Born Ruffians – Music Hall of Williamsburg
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

Ten years ago, on the very first song on their very first album, Born Ruffians revealed their ambitions to start their own country. They didn't really offer details about how they would go about legally annexing land, drafting a constitution or establishing a native currency, but we did know this much: it had a population of three-singer/guitarist Luke Lalonde, bassist Mitch DeRosier and drummer Steve Hamelin. It would have a simple flag made up of the colors waved in the album's title, Red, Yellow & Blue. And as that album vividly illustrated, their country was a primitive place marked by jagged terrain, rickety footbridges and sudden tremors. Its roughly sketched borders were defended by makeshift fences made of tangled guitar strings, broken drumsticks and-when all else failed-ravenous hoots 'n' hollers.
Over time, this lawless territory fortified itself into a stable nation-state. While some citizens left (Hamelin, back to school), its population ultimately increased by 33 per cent (thanks to replacement drummer Adam Hindle and second guitarist Andy Lloyd). The sparse scenery filled in with lush greenery. The rocky turf was gradually paved over with smooth surfaces. That untamed, in-the-wild vibe gave way to the steely efficiency of a big cosmopolitan city. State-of-the-union addresses-in the form of 2010's Say It, 2013's Birthmarks and 2015's RUFF- were broadcast to an ever-growing mass of enthusiasts around the world. Born Ruffians' makeshift country had become a pretty, prosperous place-thanks to regular alt-rock radio airplay, millions of Spotify listens and non-stop international touring-but it was one that Lalonde no longer recognized. Without his fellow founding father Hamelin by his side, it just didn't feel like home anymore.

Schtick A Pole In It's: Woman Who Rock – DROM
March 24, 2018 – New York

From comedians Dan Goodman and JoAnna Ross comes Schtick A Pole In It, a night of comedy and pole dancing.

If you've never seen a pole show this is the one to come to. They're not strippers, it's not burlesque, it's aerial dance with a side of crazy gymnastics and death defying tricks that make your jaw drop. This month's theme is Woman Who Rock. Think- Stevie, Annie, Tina to name a few. Dancers choose between the songs that turned good girls bad. If you don't see shows like this why are you even paying the crazy NYC rents?

Justine Skye 'ULTRAVIOLET' Tour – SOBs
March 24, 2018 – New York

You could call it a coming-of-age moment…
While working on her 2017 full-length debut Ultraviolet (Roc Nation/Republic Records), singer and songwriter Justine Skye underwent a life-changing personal and professional transformation.
"Throughout this process, I found the woman who I want to be," she admits. "I've realized this is a girl who's not afraid to say what's on her mind. The relationships I've been through and my experiences have shaped the sound. Ultraviolet isn't about a color; it's about a feeling. For me, it's being a confident woman. I've been working on becoming who I am today since I started making music. However, this is really the beginning for me."
Since 2014, she has quietly built a formidable foundation for this progression. Produced exclusively by GRAMMY® Award-winning visionary The Dream, her 2016 EP 8 Ounces earned praise from the likes of Billboard, The Fader, Genius, and more as Wonderland Magazine proclaimed her a "musical prodigy on the rise." Throughout 2017, she began assembling what would become Ultraviolet inside intimate New York and Los Angeles studios with just a handful of collaborators.

Danh Vo Selects: The Exorcist (1973) – Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
March 24, 2018 – New York

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

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement – Elsewhere
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

Eddie Trunk Hosts: Crimshaw (Record Release Show), Brand of Julez, Black Dawn – Arlene's Grocery
March 24, 2018 – New York

Crimshaw is a Rock band – just that but no less than that. The authentic spirit of Rock that has withstood the passage of time, from Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath to Rush, KISS, and more, is born anew in these young guys from Brooklyn.
Crimshaw's driving and irresistible sound and stage presence never loses the spirit of fun that's at the heart of all the heavy music that lasts and retains its appeal. They are both original, and also connected to influences: audiences appreciate the obvious Hard Rock and even blues-influenced Metal vibes, but others are clear in their music and live shows as well – from Groove to Prog, and even an occasional nod to the Heavy Ballad tradition. Crimshaw is entirely in the here and now.
They came together in 2015 in the best tradition of rock bands: best friends (and two brothers) jamming in basement. Now they're thrusting their passion into a Rock-deprived world. Their first album, Monsters, hits in early 2018 – an unfurled sonic flag of unrepentant, diverse, authentic, and modern Rock N' Roll.

The Phantom of the Opera – Majestic Theatre
Through March 24, 2018 – New York

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

Livingston Taylor – Emelin Theatre
March 24, 2018 – Mamaroneck

Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar at the age of 13, beginning a 50-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting, and teaching. From top-40 hits "I Will Be in Love with You" and "I'll Come Running," to "I Can Dream of You" and "Boatman," both recorded by his brother James, Livingston's creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres—folk, pop, gospel, jazz—and from upbeat storytelling to touching ballads. Livingston has never stopped performing since those early coffeehouse days, touring with major artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett and Jethro Tull, and he maintains a busy concert schedule of over 80 shows a year. He is a natural performer, peppering his shows with personal stories, anecdotes and ineffable warmth that connect him to his fans. His relaxed on-stage presence belies the depth of his musical knowledge, and fans might just as often be treated to a classic Gershwin or something from the best of Broadway.

The Soul Rebels featuring Marcus King & Cory Henry – Brooklyn Bowl
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.
The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

Emo Night Brooklyn – Brooklyn Bowl
March 24, 2018 – Brooklyn

Emo Night Brooklyn is an Emo/ Pop-Punk DJ event that was founded by two best friends, Ethan and Alex, who grew up listening to music, going to shows, and having some epic parties together. The first ENB was in a packed basement in local Williamsburg bar. The party proved to be one of the best nights of our lives, and it instantly grew to a New York monthly staple, moving the party to larger venues such as Brooklyn Bowl and Irving plaza.
Since then, many icons of the Emo/Pop-Punk scene have joined the party to guest DJ, including Ryan Key of Yellowcard, William Beckett of The Academy Is, Jordan Pundik of New Found Glory, and more.
Ethan and Alex have now expanded the party to not just other areas of the country, but to other parts of the world.
We welcome you to join the party. Scream, dance, rage, repeat, to all of your favorite songs with all of your favorite people and experience the awesomeness that is Emo Night Brooklyn.

Black Portraiture(s) IV: The Color of Silence – New York University
Through March 24, 2018 – New York

BLACK PORTRAITURE(S) IV: The Color of Silence is the eighth conference in a series of conversations about imaging the black body. We invite artists, activists, and scholars to reflect on the visual expressions of national imaginaries and political ideologies that negate racial differences and render black subjects invisible. Such ideologies are prevalent in Latin America and the Caribbean, where metaphors of mixture (mestizaje or mestiçagem) and racial harmony ignore inequality and discrimination. Similar formulations are to be found elsewhere, however, as in republican France, or among proponents of a post-racial United States, or in references to a South African "rainbow nation", or in Jamaica's well-known "out of many, one people" motto. Presenters will engage a range of historical and contemporary topics such as biennales, exhibitions, movements, individual artists and collectives, art markets, politics, tourism, sites of memory, Afrofuturism, fashion, dance, music, film, art, and photography. We invite papers and panel proposals on relevant topics.

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.

Screening & Live Event: Thank You and Good Night – Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 25, 2018 – Queens

Dir. Jan Oxenberg. 1992, 82 mins. Newly restored DCP from IndieCollect. With Mae Joffe, Helen Oxenberg. Jan Oxenberg's wildly inventive, genre-bending film offers a "remarkable meditation on love, death, mortality, and Jewish guilt" (San Francisco Chronicle) and makes use of cardboard cutouts crafted from old photographs and features playful skits that bring to life the director's own memories of her grandmother. When the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 1991, Amy Taubin, writing for the Village Voice, described the reactions: "Thank You and Good Night choked up the self-consciously hip professional audience. Total strangers hung around the lobby long after the screening, sharing intensely personal anecdotes about death and dying."
Thank You and Good Night is the latest 4K restoration by IndieCollect, a non-profit organization that saves and restores American independent films so they can be seen in state-of-the-art digital formats. As part of its Queer Cinema Initiative, it will be restoring all the films of Jan Oxenberg. IndieCollect's Queer Cinema Initiative is supported by Gerald Herman and other donors. Its Film Restoration Initiative is supported in part with funds from the Just Film / Ford Foundation, Weissman Family Foundation, and by Amazon Studios. The restoration of Thank You and Good Night has also received support from the Ravenal Foundation.

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.

Then They Came for Me – ICP Museum
Through March 25, 2018 – New York

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.

Billy Childs Quartet – Jazz Standard
Through March 25, 2018 – New York

Congratulations to pianist, composer, and arranger Billy Childs, winner of Best Jazz Instrumental Album for Rebirth (Mack Avenue) at the 60th annual GRAMMY Awards. Childs began his remarkable career as a journeyman musician with the bands of Freddie Hubbard and J.J. Johnson in the late Seventies and early Eighties. In 1988, he launched his recording career as a leader with Take For Example, This… – the first of his four critically acclaimed albums for Windham Hill Jazz. Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro (Sony Masterworks, 2014) was produced by Larry Klein and featured such guest artists as Renee Fleming, Yo–Yo Ma, Wayne Shorter, Alison Kraus, Dianne Reeves, Chris Botti, and Esperanza Spalding. Billy Childs' latest album, Rebirth (Mack Avenue), marks "a return to the snaking quickfire hard–bop Childs played in the '70s, albeit infused with all the musics he has visited so intelligently since…It's ultra–sophisticated, gracefully crafted jazz, but full of dynamism." (The Guardian)

The Fall – St. Ann's Warehouse
Through March 25, 2018 – Brooklyn

The Fall, a hit at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and currently on its way to London's Royal Court, was devised collaboratively by a cast of seven actors who recount their experiences as student leaders of the #RhodesMustFall protest movement, which called for the teardown of a colonialist monument on their University of Cape Town campus. Marshaling the power of protest songs and dance, The Fall unpacks discrimination in all forms, exposing the impact of inflammatory iconography, crushing student debt and tuition fees, shedding light on similar debates here in America. The Stage calls the show "a truly ensemble production which has both teeth and heart, and one which stands for student revolt around the world and down the ages."

Through March 25, 2018 – New York

the little OPERA theatre of ny
in collaboration withNew Vintage Baroque
presents the New York City Premiere of
Johann Adolph Hasse's
PIRAMO e TISBE
with a libretto by Marco Coltellini
based upon the story of
Pyramus and Thisbe from Ovid's Metamorphoses
March 22-25, 2018
at Baruch Performing Arts Center
The little OPERA theatre of ny (LOTNY), in collaboration with New York based period ensemble New Vintage Baroque, presents the New York City Premiere of Piramo e Tisbe at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue, NYC, from March 22-25, 2018, with performances on Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are $35 and are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/cal/35006.
 
Based upon the story of Pyramus and Thisbe from Ovid's Metamorphoses with a libretto by Marco Coltellini, Piramo e Tisbe is byJohann Adolph Hasse, a pivotal opera composer of the 18th Century celebrated for his sweet and tender melodies. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
A wall and family feud stand between Pyramus and Thisbe. Their secret plans to unite unravel under the moonlight.
 
Conducted by Elliot Figg, directed by directed by LOTNY Artistic Director Philip Shneidman, with set design by Neil Patel  (Alcina at Washington Opera, The Crucible at The Glimmerglass Festival), costume design by Lara de Bruijn (Rome?o et Juliette at Castleton Festival, Alcina at Boston Conservatory), lighting design by Grant Yeager (What We're Up Against at Women's Project Theater), and video design by Alex Koch.
 
Featured in the cast are mezzo-soprano Sarah Nelson Craft as "Piramo" and soprano Summer Hassan as "Tisbe" with other cast members to be announced soon. 
Johann Adolph Hasse (1699-1783) was born near Hamburg, and began his career as a singer in that city. In 1721 he left for Italy where his training and career as a composer developed and flourished. An early success was his serenata Antonio e Cleopatra presented in Naples and featuring the then new singer Farinelli. Soon after, the opera Artaserse to a libretto by Metastasio was presented in Venice during Carnival of 1725 and helped secure his fame. The opera's celebrated arias performed by Farinelli were hit tunes of their day and furthered Hasse's fame throughout Europe. Other operas and success followed for Hasse and he played a pivotal part in the development of opera seria and 18th-century sacred music.  Notable for his close friendship and collaboration with the influential Italian poet and librettist Metastasio along with his marriage to the highly regarded soprano Faustina Bordoni, Hasse entered into the Saxon Royal service as court kapellmeister in 1733 (one of the best-paid positions of the time), launching a nearly 30-year long stretch of prolific activity that propelled Dresden Opera to its peak of popularity. Highlights from his many operas composed between 1730-1771 include Didone abbandonata, Cleofide, Siroe, La Clemenza di Tito, all to librettos by Metastasio. Among Hasse's many sacred cantatas, I pellegrini al sepolcro di Nostre Signore from 1742 was popular throughout German and Italian lands. A victim of changing aesthetics of the period, Hasse's career also was altered by the Seven Years War in Europe (1756-1763) with the dissolution of the court in Dresden. In 1768 he composed the intermezzo tragico Piramo e Tisbe, to a libretto by Marco Coltellini for a performance in an unidentified country estate outside of Vienna. He revised his opera in 1770 for performance in the city at the Laxenburg Palace Theater. Johann Adolf Hasse spent his last years in Venice with his wife, where he died in 1782. His grave was unmarked until 1820.
 
Marco Coltellini (1724-1777) was born in Montepulciano and died in St. Petersburg. Active throughout the 18th century in the world of Opera, Coltellini wrote librettos for Traetta, Gluck, Salieri, and Mozart among others. At the premiere of Hasse's Piramo e Tisbe, the multi-talented librettist sang the role of "Il Padre." In 1775 Coltellini created a revised version of the libretto for London with music by Venanzio Rauzzini. Coltellini had based his libretto on one of the most popular tales from Ovid (43 BCE – 17 CE). Pyramus and Thisbe appear in Book IV of Ovid's narrative poem Metamorphoses which was widely translated, read, and adapted in Europe by writers and students of Latin. Chaucer, Dante, Boccaccio, and Shakespeare are just a few of the authors who have referenced the original star -crossed lovers from ancient Babylon.
 
Elliot Figg (Conductor) returns to LOTNY as conductor and harpsichordist after the 2016 U.S. premiere of Chevalier de St. Georges' L'Amant Anonyme. Other recent engagements include: assistant conductor and harpsichordist for Vivaldi's Farnace, and for Cavalli's Veremonda, both with Spoleto Festival USA; and assistant conductor and harpsichordist for Dido and Aeneas with L.A. Opera. Elliot is an active member of several New York-based early music and contemporary ensembles, including New Vintage Baroque, ACRONYM, Ruckus, and New York Baroque Incorporated. He is a graduate of the Historical Performance Program at The Juilliard School where he studied harpsichord with Kenneth Weiss. He has also studied with Arthur Haas at the Yale School of Music. Elliot received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in music composition from the University of North Texas, where he studied composition with Cindy McTee and Joseph Klein, and harpsichord with Lenora McCroskey.

A "Critic's Pick" in The New Yorker and The New York Times, Travelers garnered critical praise. The NY Times commending the operas  "delicate balance of grandeur and intimacy."

Kings – The Public Theater
Through March 25, 2018 – New York

Playwright Sarah Burgess (Dry Powder) and Tony-winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton, Tiny Beautiful Things, Dry Powder) team up again for KINGS, a hilariously blistering new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic.
Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn't waste her time on anyone who can't get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career.
But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in?
KINGS is a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures – Museum of Chinese in America
Through March 25, 2018 – Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

Coney Island Ritual Cabaret Festival – Coney Island USA
Through March 25, 2018 – Brooklyn

The Coney Island Ritual Cabaret Festival marks International Culture Lab's (ICL) third consecutive year probing the fantastical dancing partnership of ritual and entertainment on Coney Island USA's burlesque stage. In March 2017, ICL and CIUSA presented the Coney Island Butoh and Theatre Festival and in March 2016, the Coney Island Butoh and Beyond Festival.
This year ICL has assembled an array of local performance artists, musicians, and dancers, all of whom have been tasked with presenting original works that define "ritual cabaret" through the lens of their own particular aesthetic, discipline and lineage.
As a point of reference and inspiration, ICL looked to the origins of Butoh. Its founder Tatsumi Hijikata developed this ritualistic dance form hand-in-glove with the cabaret scene in the late sixties. During the day, Hijikata trained his dancers in exercises and techniques that would become Ankoku Butoh. At night they experimented with bringing their exploration into the competitive marketplace of cabaret/burlesque. "His shows got a reputation for being a kind of 'weird, funky cabaret' in which female nudity appeared along with surrealist and Dadaist images." (Rosemary Candelario, "Flowers Cracking Concrete: Eiko & Koma's Asian/American Choreographies")

Bobby Watson (alto saxophone) Stephen Scott (piano) Essiet Essiet (bass) Winard Harper (drums)
The alto saxophone great Bobby Watson first gained fame with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers during a prolific period in the late '70s when he also served as the group's music director. Along the way he has been a vital artistic voice working with Max Roach, Louis Hayes, George Coleman, Sam Rivers, Branford and Wynton Marsalis as well as vocalists like Joe Williams, Dianne Reeves, Lou Rawls, Better Carter, and Carmen Lundy. He also formed his own influential band, Horizon, which is considered one of the essential small groups of the past 30 years. All About Jazz describes Watson as playing "very intensely, echoing those powerful Kansas City sounds while moving forward through all the bebop and mainstream trends while maintaining his own consistent style," and the Financial Times states, "He lets notes linger seductively before darting off at warm and romantic angles, and his high-note riffs and speedy lines are steeped in the blues and serve an over-arching purpose. "

"Gabriel" – North of History
Through March 26, 2018 – New York

Reacting to Wendy Davis' 2013 anti-abortion in the Texas Legislature, playwright C. Denby Swanson, author of "The Norwegians," resolved to write a play about a woman's right to choose and the effect of this wedge issue on female friendship or "sisterhood." The result was a darkly comedic drama, "Gabriel: A Polemic," in which four tightly-bonded women, confounded by issues of abortion and free will, are divided unexpectedly by a crisis of faith at their weekly dinner. The Drilling Company, which developed the play in a series of readings and workshops since 2014, will mount its world premiere March 9 to 26 at North of History, a new performance/gallery space founded by Gene Kaufman that is located at 445 Columbus Ave. (between 81st and 82nd Streets).

Jersey Boys – New World Stages -Stage One
Through March 26, 2018 – New York

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

New Yorkers will be encouraged to purchase a Limited-Edition Chalice – benefiting Water.org – to activate installation performance
Stella Artois and Water.org are visualizing the impact of their partnership that works to end the global water crisis through the debut of a public art installation, “Water Ripples by Stella Artois,” in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal.
Stella Artois’ “Buy A Lady A Drink” campaign is the brand’s ongoing commitment in partnership with Water.org and their co-founders, Matt Damon and Gary White, to help end the global water crisis by providing an opportunity for people around the world to make an impact.
The water-inspired kinetic art installation is activated by the cornerstone of the Water.org partnership – the Stella Artois Limited-Edition Chalice. For every Chalice sold, Stella Artois helps Water.org provide five years of clean water for one person in the developing world.
New Yorkers who purchase a Chalice on-site will be invited to activate the water-inspired art installation and initiate the wave-like performance of the installation’s kinetic droplets – which signifies their contribution to the cause. Participants will also have their experience captured on video, resulting in a unique piece of content to share on social media.
Be part of the change and help fuel the “Water Ripples by Stella Artois” installation through the purchase of a Stella Artois Limited-Edition Chalice at Grand Central Terminal from March 23 through March 26.

Stein | Holum Projects: the Wholehearted (New York Premiere) – Abrons Art Center
Through March 31, 2018 – New York

Listen to the beats / The rhythm of my Bushwick streets." Brooklyn impresario Modesto Flako Jimenez conjures his beloved borough in this bilingual elegy, told through poems, projections, and music.

Now that Charlie is freshly released from prison for her attempted murder, Dee is hell-bent on revenge, no matter the cost. But only Dee's true love, Carmen, can provide her with redemption. By turns "potent and enigmatic" (San Diego Union Tribune) and "boldly arresting" (Boston Globe), THE WHOLEHEARTED is an unsettling ride through the human heart.

Cathode Love Presents – Music Box Theater
Through March 31, 2018 – New York

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

Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents Prurience – The Wright Restaurant at the Guggenheim
Through March 31, 2018 – NYC

Following a sold-out run at the Southbank Centre in London, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents the U.S. Premiere of Prurience, an experiential entertainment about pornography, written and directed by Christopher Green and co-directed by Holly Race Roughan (People, Places & Things), from March 20-31, 2018.
After interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, British writer and performer Christopher Green presents an immersive theater experience inviting audiences to attend a fictional self-help group that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed. Questioning the side effects of porn consumption, Green asks audiences to consider if society is in the grip of an actual addiction or a moral panic, through increasingly distorting layers of reality and theatricality. Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs. Casting to be announced.
"(Prurience) tests the limits of theatre… at its fiendish, exhilarating best it makes you question not just attitudes to porn but how we experience reality." – The Guardian (UK)
"Theatrically the piece is audacious, springing a series of head-spinning surprises. This is the kind of art that leaves its mark on you. Unnerving, and uncomfortably compelling." – The Times (UK)
"Green and company confound us, drawing profound attention to the warped notions of pleasure, pain and privacy that are peddled by contemporary pornography." – The Stage (UK)
"Prurience will leave you guessing and thinking long after you've left the theatre."
– Spy In The Stalls (UK)
Prurience has been created with support from the Wellcome Trust.

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

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

Baya: Woman of Algiers – Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 – New York

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

'Our Troubled Youth' – New York University
Through March 31, 2018 – New York

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

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

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

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

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

Bobby McFerrin Spirityouall – Blue Note Jazz Club
Through April 01, 2018 – New York

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

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

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

The Low Road – The Public Theater
Through April 01, 2018 – New York

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

Through April 01, 2018 – New York

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

In Practice: Another Echo – SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 – Long Island City

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

Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid – SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 – Long Island City

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

The Book of Mormon – Eugene O'Neill Theatre
Through April 02, 2018 – New York

From the creative geniuses behind South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, with music by Robert Lopaz, co-composer of Avenue Q and Frozen, comes the smash hit comedy musical The Book of Mormon!! After seeing Avenue Q, Parker and Stone were inspired to create a musical of their own with Robert Lopez, and began meeting to discuss and write – a process which, including research involving a trip to Salt Lake City to meet Mormon missionaries, took almost 7 years. It was well worth the wait – the Book of Mormon took Broadway by storm, setting record ticket sales for the Eugene O’Neil Theatre, and winning nine Tony Awards including Best Musical!

MacMadness Pasta Tournament – The Saint Austere
Through April 02, 2018 – Brooklyn

The Saint Austere in Williamsburg and Macchialina, its Miami Beach-based sister restaurant will go head-to-head in their own version of the NCAA’s highly-anticipated March Madness tournament, “MacMadness”, that will kick off Monday, March 12th.
The pasta-packed event will challenge both restaurants to serve two unique pastas per week of the tournament, both hand-crafted by Macchialina's chef/owner and James Beard Semifinalist, Michael Pirolo. The rules are simple: the pasta with the most orders will advance to the next week, and the last dish standing will hold a permanent spot on both Macchialina's and the Saint Austere's menus. The winner will be announced Monday, April 2nd.

Attila Mata – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Clea Von Döhren – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Mao Lizi – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Dana Ingesson – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Iftah Geva – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Alexandra Verbeek – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Hiroko Saigusa – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Ellen Cuylaerts – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Daniel Loveridge – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Franck Sastre – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Elena Gastón Nicolás – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Zie Otto – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Howard Harris – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – New York

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

Lyrical Abstraction and Encounters: Nature and Culture – Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 – NYC

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

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist – Grey Art Gallery
Through April 06, 2018 – New York

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

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

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

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

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time – Lesley Heller
Through April 08, 2018 – New York

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.

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.

Unpacking the Green Book – Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through April 08, 2018 – New York

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.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL CHORALE
The National Chorale, New York's premier professional choral company, is celebrating its 50thLincoln Center Season at David Geffen Hall, previously Avery Fisher Hall, with its continuing series of choral orchestral masterworks and 20th century American Classics.
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. The panel will review new operatic works for the industry with the goal of bringing new audiences to opera. On working with the National Chorale, Dr. McCorvey said "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of great choral singing with the National Chorale is indeed an honor and a privilege. It is my fervent hope that we can continue to sing, share and experience the goodness of humanity through music and learn of each other better through sharing in the arts."

Rendering Water in Works of Art – Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Through April 12, 2018 – Crown Heights

"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.

The Bench, A Homeless Love Story – East Village Playhouse
Through April 13, 2018 – East Village

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' – BayWay Arts Center
Through April 14, 2018 – East Islip

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.

Through April 14, 2018 – Corona

Saint Clair Cemin: Oedipus – Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 – New York

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.

Alex Katz: Cut Outs – Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 – New York

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.

'The Adventures of Peter Rabbit' – Theatre Three
Through April 14, 2018 – Port Jefferson

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.

Three Small Irish Masterpieces – Irish Repertory Theater
Through April 15, 2018 – New York

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.

Erwin Redl's Whiteout – Madison Square Park
Through April 15, 2018 – Flatiron

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.

Treasure That Trash – Ward Melville Heritage Organization
Through April 15, 2018 – Stony Brook

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

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

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

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

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

Diana Cooper: Gleanings (1997-2018) – The New York Studio School
Through April 15, 2018 – New York

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.

Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks – New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 – Lower East Side

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. Nathaniel Mellors was born in 1974 in Doncaster, UK, and lives and works in Los Angeles and Amsterdam. Solo exhibitions include the Box, Los Angeles (2016); Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2014); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2014); Galway Arts Centre, Ireland (2013); Baltimore Museum of Art (2013); Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2012); Cobra Museum, Amstelveen, Netherlands (2011); and Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2011).

Alexandra Pirici – New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 – Lower East Side

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

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: 18×24 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.

Virva Hinnemo – Anita Rogers Gallery
Through April 21, 2018 – New York

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.

Saturday Instructional Drawing Class – The Society of Illustrators
Through April 21, 2018 – New York

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 18×24 newsprint pad are all that is required but people with experience may use whatever they like in the way of drawing materials and paper

Jeff Koons: Easyfun-Ethereal – Gagosian
Through April 21, 2018 – New York

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.

'Cinderella the Musical' – The Players Theatre
Through April 22, 2018 – Greenwich Village

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

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

Pygmalion – The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
Through April 22, 2018 – New York

This March and April, Eric Tucker, who Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal named, "America's best classical stage director," will return to the work of George Bernard Shaw with the notable classic, Pygmalion.
"At this moment in time I'm extremely interested in exploring how power is negotiated through sexual politics in a gritty interpretation of Shaw's classic play." – Bedlam's Artistic Director, Eric Tucker
Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience, BEDLAM creates works of theatre that reinvigorate traditional forms in a flexible, raw space, collapsing aesthetic distance and bringing its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life. In this new, fresh, active environment storytelling becomes paramount and the result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy.

Pygmalion – Sheen Center
Through April 22, 2018 – New York

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

Visitors can expect to see a troopship berthing unit, a Viet Cong bicycle and the Pentagon Papers—which revealed years of government secrets related to the war—plus film and newsclips to round out the experience.

The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975 – New York Historical Society
Through April 22, 2018 – New York

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.

Seed / Pond by Halsey Chait – The Invisible Dog Art Center
Through April 22, 2018 – Brooklyn

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

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

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

Car Parts: Laurie Peek – Union Arts Center
Through April 23, 2018 – Sparkill

"'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.

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. Having premiered in 2006 at The Public Theater (where it was titled Emergence-SEE!), this solo tour-de-force explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. The prestigious Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company returns for the fifth annual Lunar New Year Celebration, and Step Afrika! brings their "percussive spectacle" (The New York Times) back to Brooklyn Center. Finally, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated musicians of Los Pleneros de la 21 present a musical celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican holiday traditions with their family-friendly
Christmas in El Barrio.

When a slave ship emerges out of the Hudson River in present-day New York Harbor, the city and the nation are sent into near-hysteria as they try to understand this bizarre and unexplainable phenomenon. 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.

Antonio Lopez – Danziger Gallery
Through April 28, 2018 – New York

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

Sculpture in the Woods – Rockland Center for the Arts
Through April 29, 2018 – West Nyack

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.

Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom – NYU
Through May 04, 2018 – New York

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.
