In this groundbreaking new documentary, producer / director Mark Dooley delves into the psychology of the most extreme Broadway superfans, to reveal the quirks and complexities of their obsessions. For some people, Broadway musicals are merely frivolous entertainment, a fun way to spend a few hours. For others, it’s an all-consuming obsession, a way of life and even the key to their very identity. These superfans are so committed to their favourite show that they return to see that show again and again, hundreds of times over. REPEAT ATTENDERS shines a spotlight on Broadway superfans and the growing global phenomenon of ‘repeat attending’, as it examines just how far the most extreme superfans will go in pursuit of their passion – some with devastating consequences. Filmed on Broadway, London’s West End, Bochum Germany and Australia’s Melbourne and Brisbane over a five-year period, REPEAT ATTENDERS introduces us to some of the world’s biggest, most extreme superfans of shows such as CATS, RENT, LES MISERABLES and STARLIGHT EXPRESS.

Join the AIANY Committee on the Environments for 2017 COTE Awards presentation. The AIANY COTE Awards recognizes results-oriented achievements in the urban context. Winning submissions demonstrate processes that culminate in beautiful, timeless and measurable design. The awards further sustainable design in the architectural profession, make transparent lessons learned, and reveal the process behind true innovation in an urban context. Established in 2014 by the New York Chapter of AIA's Committee on the Environment, the program seeks to redefine how design excellence is evaluated. By honoring innovative projects we seek to provide a collective resource to all firms looking to achieve socially and environmentally responsible design. Connecting the individual experience to a greater context and purpose has always been the role of architecture. Climate change, political stability, energy and water independence, and human health are all responsibilities of the design community. These challenges present new opportunities to enrich the profession — to generate positive impact in the world we build. The awards recognize design that brings us closer to solving the critical issues facing our communities as achieving the highest level of intention possible in the field of architecture. 2017 AIANY COTE Award Winners Honor Award Project: One John Street Firm: Alloy Development Merit Awards Project: Northeastern University Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex Firm: Payette Project: Vassar College Bridge for Laboratory Sciences Integrated Science Commons Firm: Ennead Architects Speakers: One John Street Jonce Walker, LEED AP, CSBA, Associate, Sustainability, Thornton Tomasetti Jais Kwon, CPHC, LEED Green Associate, Senior Project Consultant, Sustainability, Thornton Tomasetti Northeastern University Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex Bob Schaeffner, Principal-in-Charge, Payette Wes Schwartz, Project Architect, Payette Vassar College Bridge for Laboratory Sciences Integrated Science Commons Edgar Jimenez, AIA, Project Architect, Ennead Organized by AIANY Committee on the Environment

The Crypt Sessions: Alyson Cambridge 'From the Diary of Sally Hemings - Church of the Intercession November 15, 2017 - New York

Soprano Alyson Cambridge takes a break from singing at the world's top opera stages (as well as modeling, acting and hosting...nbd...) to present a very special program in the Crypt: William Bolcom's acclaimed song cycle From the Diary of Sally Hemings. The eighteen imagined diary entries tell the life story of Thomas Jefferson's slave-turned-mistress, grappling with issues of race, regret, respect and love that are as relevant today as they were back then. Cambridge has been hailed by critics as "radiant, vocally assured, dramatically subtle and compelling, and artistically imaginative" (Washington Post), noted for her "powerful, clear voice" (New York Times) and "revelatory, sensual, smoky readings" (Opera News). We're excited to have her join us in the Crypt.

Cohen, Associate Professor of Law, Fordham University. PART TWO: 7:00 PM LECTURE | Perpetrator Testimony While in Argentina, Adolf Eichmann espoused Nazi ideology; his presentations were preserved on the "Sassen tapes." Before and during his trial in Israel, Eichmann was interrogated by Avner Less. He sent notes to his attorney, wrote his autobiography, and testified in court. Finally, on death row, Eichmann tried to reshape his legacy with extensive writings that were kept secret in Israel until 2000.

Mariinsky Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall November 15, 2017 - New York City

Daniil Trifonov made his Carnegie Hall debut in a performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. He reunites with them for another composer's first concerto—his own. Trifonov's Piano Concerto has pianistic flash, but also introspection and great tenderness. Prokofiev's Symphony No. 6 looks inward too—especially in the anguished central Largo—but also excites with powerful outer movements. Strauss's Don Juan is pure excitement: Sumptuously scored, brilliantly melodic, it's the tone poem that propelled him to the front rank of composers.

"Faced with such excellence, a mere critic can only abandon paper and pencil and listen to this heroic but deeply moving artist with awe and amazement," wrote Gramophone of Paul Lewis. He explores the late piano music of three Austro-German masters in a recital that traces a path from the grace and wit of Haydn to the concentrated emotive power of Beethoven and Brahms.

PART ONE: 3:00 PM LECTURE Survivor Testimony Though the accounts survivors delivered at Adolf Eichmann's trial powerfully shaped public memory, historians remained wary of using survivor testimony as evidence. However, in some instances—such as the Starachowice factory slave labor camps—survivor testimony is the sole evidence of the atrocities that took place.

Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch. Marc's song "Home" was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of Marc's vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come.

With The Drums' new 'Abysmal Thoughts,' band founder Jonny Pierce is making the exact album he's always held in his heart. Of course, this is The Drums, so that heart is broken -- but there's beauty and even bliss in this kind of heartbreak, as well as that special kind of glorious delirium that comes from taking everything life can throw at you and still walking away triumphant. If 'Abysmal Thoughts' doesn't sound at all abysmal -- really, Pierce has rarely been this irresistibly pop -- that's because this is a story about how to figure out what happiness means once the worst has already happened. "Happiness can be confusing to me," says Pierce. "It shows up out of nowhere, and before you can even get used to it, it's vanished. But 'Abysmal Thoughts?' I can rely on them -- and with the political chaos that is raining down, who knows when these dark feelings will subside?" As the last album cycle for the Drums finished and his long-term relationship with his former partner dissolved, Pierce took some time away from music altogether in hopes to reconnect with himself and find future inspiration. Determined to make a change, he ended up leaving his longtime home in New York and found himself isolated in a large empty apartment in Los Angeles, all his plans for life and love suddenly in shambles: "I said I wanted to let life happen?" he says. "Well, the universe listened and life began to fuck me real good! But honestly, I make the worst art when I'm comfortable. The stuff that resonates with me the longest -- and that resonates with others -- is always the stuff that comes out of my hardships and confusion." That hardship and confusion -- and the clarity of personality and purpose it inspired -- became 'Abysmal Thoughts,' an unflinching autobiography with Pierce back in full control of the band. He's back to not just writing all the songs by himself but playing every instrument, too, this time realizing exactly his own personal vision for the band. Not coincidentally, it's some of the most revelatory work he's ever done. The key was opener "Mirror," and from there, 'Thoughts' simply flowed: "It very much felt like I was releasing," Pierce says. "I had this visual of turning a handle and watching steam just pour out of the valve, relieving a lot of my artistic and personal anxiety. I was dealing with so much loss and feeling unsure and scared -- and if there's one thing I can rely on it's the healing power of being an artist. I'm falling back in love with music. Creating this album on my own was a full-on long-running therapy session."

Remembering the Good: Holocaust Rescue and Resistance in a French Village - Kupferberg Holocaust Center @ Queensborough Community College November 15, 2017 - New York

Remembering the Good: Holocaust Rescue and Resistance in a French Village Lecturer: Maggie Paxson Wednesday, November 15th 12:10-2:00pm NEH 2017-18 Event: Complicity & Collaboration From 1939 to 1945, the villagers of the Plateau Vivarais-Lignon, France, hid, protected, and ultimately rescued thousands of Jews from the Nazis at great peril to their own lives. Their nearly unparalleled actions during the Holocaust are part of this community's long history of taking in persecuted outsiders of diverse backgrounds. Anthropologist Dr. Margaret Paxson will discuss her nearly completed book on how this community handled the shelter of outsiders. Dr. Paxson, whose first book, Solvyovo: The Story of Memory in a Russian Village, was named a 2006 "Book of the Year" by Salon.com, is a Research Fellow at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs. Using the archive collection of the USHMM oral histories and other official records, this scholar offers a comprehensive and fascinating narrative of an entire community effort towards resistance and rescue, the effects of which both resonate and remain celebrated today.

Jean-Michel Blais is a 31 year-old pianist from Montreal, Canada. His enchanting instrumental compositions pair the melodic pop sensibilities of Amélie-era Yann Tiersen and Arts & Crafts alumni Chilly Gonzales with the breathtaking technical skill of classical minimalists like Philip Glass and Erik Satie. Il, his debut album of original compositions is set to be released last spring on Arts & Crafts. Blais grew up in a rural French Catholic town in Quebec absent of Culture save for a giant Encyclopedia he'd read feverishly as a child. At age 9, Blais began tinkering on his family's organ, improvising, and at age 11 started to write original compositions and taking piano lessons. A natural talent, by 17 he was invited to the Trois-Rivieres Music Conservatory and began training as a classical pianist. However, Blais was entering the throes of teenage rebellion and found the constraints of formal training cumbersome rigid structure. Gravitating towards experimentation, Blais wasn't content to be told how to play, and not to improvise or compose. He moved to Europe in his mid-20s living in Berlin and spent six months in South America. During that time he'd intermittently compose music with long gaps of not even touching a piano. Blais finally settled in Montreal where he rediscovered his love for composing and performing which caught the ear of Arts & Crafts. Written over a two years by improvising every day, Jean-Michel Blais' debut album, Il, is available now.

"King Crimson is, as always, more a way of doing things. When there is nothing to be done, nothing is done: Crimson disappears. When there is music to be played, Crimson reappears. If all of life were this simple". Robert Fripp. King Crimson was conceived in November 1968 and born on January 13th 1969 in the Fulham Palace Cafe, London (Fripp/Ian McDonald/Greg Lake/Michael Giles/Pete Sinfield), coming to prominence after supporting The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park. Their ground-breaking debut In The Court Of The Crimson King (1969) described by Pete Townshend as "an uncanny masterpiece", began a career that has spanned nearly five decades. Despite the original line-up imploding after an American tour King Crimson continued to produce constantly challenging and intriguing music on albums such as In The Wake of Poseidon (1970), Lizard (1970), Islands (1971), Earthbound (1972), Larks' Tongues in Aspic (1973) and Red (1974). Following Red, an exhausted Fripp declared "King Crimson is completely over for ever and ever." After a period outside the music industry, Robert Fripp returned to work on solo projects (including Frippertronics and his first solo album, Exposure in 1979) and collaborations with artists such as, Daryll Hall, Blondie, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie. In 1981, Fripp reconvened King Crimson along with Adrian Belew (Zappa/Bowie/Talking Heads), Tony Levin (Paul Simon/John Lennon/Peter Gabriel) and his old sparring partner, Bill Bruford. "The bleak Crim view lightened" according to Fripp as their musical vocabulary widened and Crimson combined gamelan, funk and rock grooves that would threaten to "tear out and flatten ear hairs within a mile." Albums which followed include Discipline (1981), Beat (1982) and Three Of A Perfect Pair (1984) and a stunning live album from their last ever performance in 1984, Absent Lovers (finally released in 1998).

It's no secret that Silversun Pickups score the soundtrack for the cacophony and quiet of the urban environment. Their songs curl like a sleeping dragon around the foothills, soar between the skyscrapers, and slouch in the shadows of forbidden offramps and skid row. Now, three years after their second record, Silversun Pickups are currently in Topanga, CA, working on their highly anticipated new record with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, Weezer, REM, Snow Patrol). The record will be released in the summer of 2012 on the band's longtime home, Dangerbird Records. Silversun Pickups have sold over 1 million records worldwide. Their first EP, Pikul, was released in 2005. While it hinted at great things to come, no one was quite prepared for the explosion of the band's debut LP, Carnavas. Released in 2006, the record peaked at #81 on the Billboard Top 200 and was the #1 Alternative and Independent record for four consecutive weeks. The fantastic single, "Lazy Eye," peaked at #4 at Modern Rock. In 2009, SSPU followed up with the equally powerful Swoon. That record debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 and was in that chart for over 22 weeks on the strength of the #1 Modern Rock smash, "Panic Switch." On November 25, 2011, they released the limited edition Seasick 10" to support independent retail.

Drummer Jerome Jennings has worked with jazz royalty like Hank Jones, Sonny Rollins, Ray Charles, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Christian McBride, and he's been a recent favorite at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola. From trios to big bands, Jennings' deep pocket, versatility, and blazing chops have made him a first-call drummer, but he's also an innovative and dedicated educator (and a passionate scholar who proudly graduated from our Swing University Jazz 301 course!). We don't know exactly what Jennings has planned for the evening, but everyone loves a great drummer, and we can promise that audiences are in good hands with this fantastic musician.

Los Angeles-based indie rock band The Wrecks root from Thousand Oaks, CA. The group consists of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (lead guitar), Westen Weiss (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums). Heavily influenced by groups such as The Pixies, The Strokes, Weezer, and Vampire Weekend, this 5-piece isn't afraid to blend undeniably catchy choruses, with self-deprecative, honest lyrics and vocals that pull you right to the center of each song. The band actually recorded their debut EP on a whim, alongside friend and engineer Andrew D'Angelo, when they were surprised with the news that a friend had been granted access to a studio for just a few days. With a total budget of $0, and only a week as a band under their belts, the group set out to record the best songs that they could in 3 days. After working ridiculous hours through the night, and to the next day whenever they could get in the studio, the 3 days were over and the EP was cut. Little did the band know, they were not even allowed to be in the studio that week. So through feelings of guilt and worry, they cleaned every bit of information of theirs from the studio computer, every crumb of Dominoes from the studio couch, and they were off with their entire EP on an hard drive in a backpack.

Part of the program Screen Play: The American Film Theatre In need of a title to fill out its 1974 quota, the AFT turned to the reigning legend of stage-to-screen—Lord Olivier's version of Anton Chekhov's play had not yet been released in the U.S. In 1900, the death of their army-colonel father leaves three Russian women at loose ends and forced to reassess their lives as they seek love and purpose. With Alan Bates, Derek Jacobi, Olivier, and Olivier's wife Joan Plowright as Masha. A film by Laurence Olivier

Part of the program Screen Play: The American Film Theatre A dream team of English actresses convenes to play nasty women in Jean Genet's caustic take on class and/or sexual jealousy. Mistress of the house Vivien Merchant lords it over household staff Glenda Jackson and Susannah York, but when she's away the maids will play. Being as the help are also sisters, the games quickly turn unsettling. A film by Christopher Miles

The perfect show for Law & Order, Sherlock, and CSI fans, Perfect Crime is a funny, romantic thriller about a psychiatrist who seems to have killed her rich husband (until he shows up very much alive); the detective who is trying to solve the supposed murder while falling in love with the primary suspect; and the psychiatrist's charming but crazy patient who seems to have killed a few people himself. There are Gone Girl and Agatha Christie-like twists and turns in the plot and there's an "answer key" for audience members to review after the show if they are still trying to figure out what happened and how.

As DARKNESS falls on 14th and 15th November 25,000 people around the world will get up from their armchairs and pull on their running shoes, slip on their red flashing armbands and hit the road to Run in the Dark. In over 50 cities worldwide these people will light up the night, as they flow through the streets like lava. Part of global event, together they are supporting Mark Pollock Trust to find and connect people worldwide to fast-track a cure for paralysis. The New York event will start at Robert F. Wagner Park at 8:00 pm on 15th November. Why should you take part? Spinal cord injury strikes at the very heart of what it means to be human; an evolutionary amputation completed in a moment, turning people from standing upright, running forms into seated compromises of their former selves. It also interferes with the body’s internal systems that are designed to keep us alive. Multiple infections, neuropathic pain and uncontrollable spasms are common. These are the things that exhaust even the most determined: that leave 7 out of 10 people excluded from the workforce; and that isolate so many of the 500,000 people globally who suffer a spinal cord injury each year. This is why the Mark Pollock Trust is exploring the frontiers of spinal cord injury, working with the world’s greatest scientists and technologists to find and connect the right people worldwide to fast-track a cure for paralysis. The Run In The Dark plays a vital part in funding our mission. This year the Trust aims to raise €500,000 to fund ground breaking scientific research, and assist scientists and technologists to translate their research from lab to clinic. So join us on the 15th November to be part of the mission.

Linda Greenhouse, the New York Times contributing op-ed writer, joins fellow Pulitzer Prize winner Anna Quindlen for a deep dive into this moment of extraordinary transition in American journalism. Just a few years ago, writes Greenhouse in her new book, Just a Journalist, the mainstream press was wrestling with whether labeling waterboarding as torture violated important norms of neutrality and objectivity. Now, major American newspapers regularly call the president of the United States a liar. Clearly, something has changed as the old rules of "balance" and "two sides to every story" have lost their grip. Is the change for the better? Will it last? For decades, Linda Greenhouse covered the US Supreme Court for The New York Times. Get her perspective on these issues and more, as she and Quindlen explore questions about the role journalists can and should play as citizens, even as participants, in the world around them. A book signing will follow.

"Only Marvin Carlson could have written such a wonderful and engaging theatre history." –Erika Fischer-Lichte, Freie Universitat Berlin Join us for a celebration of Marvin Carlson's latest book Ten Thousand Nights: Highlights from 50 Years of Theatre-Going. This volume collects an astonishing chronicle of a half-century of theatre-going, in which Carlson recalls 50 memorable productions, out of over 10,000— choosing one from each year spanning from 1960 to 2010. The range of performances covered is wide and represent a history of theatre in itself–edgy experimental productions, theatre classics, mainstream musicals, and street performance. Travel with the author to stages and sidewalks across Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Milan, New York, and elsewhere. Carlson provides unique insight on what theatre-going meant in each decade, what kind of theatre the zeitgeist produced, and his personal accounts of the productions. These engaging vignettes portray vivid descriptions of productions, venues, and neighborhoods, all told with necessary cultural context—covering significant theatre movements and artists from the late twentieth century to the present.

Who Authored the Bible? the Historical Perspective - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center November 15, 2017 - New York

When we're studying the Bible, one question that invariably arises is who wrote the Five Books and how were they compiled? Rabbinic commentators affirm that Moses was the author and explain the many repetitions, inconsistencies and contradictions with midrash (interpretive explanations). Modern scholars respond with a critical, historical reading of the text, identifying four primary sources or author schools—E, J, P and D. The composition, today's scholars posit, was gradual, with various segments being written in response to historical circumstances and changing theological world views. In this class, we will unravel and examine these strands with a view toward understanding how a critical reading—one that recognizes the multiplicity of voices inherent in the text's construction—enriches our insight into the Bible's profound and compelling messages, without undermining its authority or divinity.

Wednesday, November 15th, ISSUE is pleased to present the first-ever duo performance between singular guitarists Loren Connors and Oren Ambarchi: an occasion intersecting their parallel championing of the instrumental abstraction of the guitar, and their independently meaningful performance histories at ISSUE. Two elemental figures in the progression of guitar music across its various evolutions, Connors and Ambarchi embody and deconstruct the tense dichotomies between their performative leanings: the painterly and technical, the flickering tone and the pure signal, the expressive and minimal. Their differences often stylistically overlap in the subtlety of their techniques and in their expansive improvisational careers -- a constellation of collaborations that include their respective recordings and concerts with Jim O'Rourke, Aki Onda, Alan Licht and Keiji Haino (most recently Ambarchi with Nazoranai, and Connors with a transatlantic improvisation that took place in Shibuya and ISSUE in 2014).

The Big Lebowski. 1998. Directed by Joel Coen - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art November 15, 2017 - New York

The Big Lebowski. 1998. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. With Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi. 35mm. 117 min. When Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski gets mistaken for a millionaire with the same name, his ramshackle apartment gets busted into by some thugs and one of his rugs gets ruined by some ungentlemanly behavior. Not that the rug was all that great to begin with— it's the principle of the matter that fuels The Dude's quest for justice. With a wrap sweater, overgrown, bleached-out hair, jelly sandals, and a White Russian in hand, Jeff Bridges shines in the role of a lifetime.

Get Out. 2017. USA. Directed by Jordan Peele. DCP. 104 min. Having developed the film before the results of the 2016 election were known, director Jordon Peele didn't necessarily intend for his debut feature to resonate in the viscerally contemporary ways it does. Though it was promoted as a horror film, its true terror lies in the mirror it holds up to latent liberal racism and cultural appropriation. Set in locales that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's visited 21st-century Manhattan or Connecticut, Get Out's creeping dread feels very close to home. Vividly entertaining and urgently relevant, it may well be the defining film of our times. Courtesy of Universal Pictures.

This series has hosted readings by emerging & established authors since 2007. Because the pen is mightier than the Kalashnikov (we hope). Curated by Lee Matthew Goldberg, Camellia Phillips, and Marco Rafalá. Hosted by Camellia Phillips. Featuring Mylène Dressler, Gordon Haber & Victoria Redel

Salute to the Music of Donna Summer, Tina Turner & Chaka Khan - Club Bonafide Through November 16, 2017 - New York

Salute to the Music of Donna Summer, Tina Turner & Chaka Khan Feat. Emilie Surtees Vocalist Emilie Surtees comes to Club Bonafide in New York City for a musical salute to three all-time great musical divas: Donna Summer, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan. This sure-to-be-electrifying set will excite any music-lover who's ever been caught belting out songs like "Hot Stuff," "What's Love Got to Do With It" or "I Feel For You." Surtees has a great talent for replicating these great tunes, note for note, while conveying the soul of the singers who originated them. She'll channel these inspirations for a truly captivating evening that honors her idols.

R&B music isn't all flowers and candy; just ask Rakim "PnB Rock" Allen. The 23-year-old singer's earliest inspiration didn't come from the bedroom, but from the streets. "At first I would look at R&B artists like they're all about love, and soft. Then I saw you could be a street boy and sing and still be hot. I knew I could do that shit," he says. PnB Rock hails from Pastorius and Baynton Streets in the Germantown section of Philadelphia — that's where he found the "P" and "B" in his name. That's also where he found himself in a bit of trouble. When Rock was 13 years old, he got sent away to a youth detention program for fighting in school and committing robberies. When Rock turned 19, he was sent to prison; it was there where he learned to blend calming melodies with hard street stories. "There were people up there singing in the yard. They were doing the same thing that I was doing, but they were serious with it," he remembers. "There would be crowds around them and that was our entertainment, everybody loved it.

GA standing room & VIP options available. VIP Balcony Ticket Includes: Front of the Line, Access to the VIP Balcony behind the Soundboard, Poster Age Restriction: 16+ unless accompanied by an adult Accessible accommodations should purchase a General Admission ticket and will be taken care of at the venue day of event.

Focus Features is hosting a special screening of DARKEST HOUR with a Q&A featuring actor Ben Mendelsohn. During the early days of WWII, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman), who must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler or fight on against incredible odds. It’s during these four weeks in 1940 that Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.

AIA New York Convention Preparations Volunteer Kickoff - AIA New York | Center for Architecture Through November 16, 2017 - New York

As host chapter of the annual national AIA gathering, A'18 Conference on Architecture (June 20-23, 2018), AIANY needs volunteers to help in various capacities. The conference will take place primarily at the Javits Convention Center, and additional educational sessions will be held at the Midtown Hilton Hotel and at The New School in Greenwich Village. AIANY has organized 80 tours, and projects over 8,000 participants. We will need over 100 volunteers to help with tasks that fall along the following lines: • TOURS: We are looking for individuals who are interested in being trained to lead tours, help with tour check-in, assist tour leaders as "escorts" or "sweepers," and coordinate general logistics. For guides, we seek individuals who have strong research and verbal communication skills. For check-in, escorting, and coordination, we seek individuals who are organized, vocal, reliable, confident travelers, and comfortable with group management. • RESEARCH AND WRITING: We are planning to produce a publication/guide that will help conference attendees navigate New York. We will need assistance compiling listings, securing artwork, researching, and writing. Volunteers with strong research and writing skills—as well as an enthusiasm to share their knowledge about where to go and what to do in New York—would be welcome! • EXHIBITION/DISPLAY: We are planning an installation at Javits (yet to be determined), and anticipate the need for volunteers to help with production, coordination, and installation. Experience with exhibition or display design and installation is a plus. • WELCOME AMBASSADORS: AIANY will have a welcome kiosk situated in the Crystal Palace (entrance pavilion) of the Javits Convention Center. We seek volunteers to staff the desk, answer questions, and provide general assistance and advice to visitors. • LEGACY PROJECT: Each year, the AIA conference promotes a "Day of Service," giving all attendees the opportunity to volunteer to work on a local project, typically a physical improvement of a nonprofit facility in need. The AIANY is working now to identify potential partners and a project (or projects), and will require advance coordination and a full day of physical work (scheduled on the last conference day, Saturday June 23, 2018). • GENVERAL VOLUNTEERS: AIA National will also issue a call for volunteers to staff the convention, scan badges, and staff information desks. Benefits of Volunteering Volunteers will earn discounts on registration. Five hours of volunteering during the Convention dates yields one day free registration; 10 hours yields two days. We encourage you to share this opportunity with your co-workers, employees, and best students. Other benefits include credit on the AIANY website and convention publication, access to special events, and (if available) complimentary tickets on select tours. If you are interested in helping, please attend our informational session on November 16 at the Center for Architecture. Please register for the kickoff using the link below AND send us information about yourself and your strengths and interests.

Three Viennese composers put their personal stamp on the string quartet. Mozart's is one of six he dedicated to Haydn, paying homage to the master while also looking ahead to the dramatic and harmonically daring quartets of Schubert. Schubert's grandly scaled string quartet is a work of profound depth and a vast range of emotions. If much of the power of Schubert's quartet is found in its great breadth, Berg's compels with late-Romantic luxury.

"Barbara Hannigan sings the songs of Erik Satie as if she's sitting next to you, whispering and cooing across the kitchen table with sufficient breathiness, soft edges and exquisite spaciousness to match Reinbert de Leeuw's sweet-melancholy piano chords." — The Guardian (UK) Barbara Hannigan has made a name for herself as a muse and collaborator with a number of legendary composers, creating roles on leading opera stages around the world by adding a kind of virtuosity that contemporary music has rarely seen before. The soprano comes to the Board of Officers Room to make her U.S. recital debut with programs that showcase her versatility and superb musicianship. She opens her residency with an artfully curated look at the Second Viennese School, where new musical language was developed through the extraordinary collaboration between composers, painters, writers, and other artists in the city's salons and cafes at the turn of the century.

Colin Dickey will discuss the history of the Flat Earth conspiracy, from its early inception in the nineteenth century to its current manifestations. One of the stranger conspiracy theories to grip the popular imagination is the notion that the Earth is in fact flat, and that this truth is being kept from us by a network of “globalists,” “roundheads,” and other government flunkies. Learn about Zetetic Astronomy, the mysterious man known only as “Parallax,” the utopian Flat Earth community of Zion, and many other strange secrets of the hidden, flat world. Most of all, learn how and why this particular belief has persisted despite all scientific evidence to the contrary, and what the debate surrounding the Flat Earth says about the current state of scientific discourse and understanding. Dickey is the author, most recently, of Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places, as well as two other books of nonfiction. He is the editor (with Joanna Ebenstein) of The Morbid Anatomy Anthology, and regularly writes on the history of science and its intersections with fringe belief and derelict ideas.

After Three Mile Pilot began an open-ended hiatus in 1997, singer/guitarist Pall Jenkins and multi-instrumentalist Tobias Nathaniel embarked on a darker, more subdued journey as The Black Heart Procession. In the many years and albums since, the band's line-up has expanded and contracted, but at its heart and soul remains Jenkins and Nathaniel, creating timeless, heart-wrenching classics that are adventurous, eclectic, and consistently brilliant. In 2017, they'll bring you their first record, from start to finish. Here's what they'd like you to know: In a small town, with but a small chance, two lowly miscreants toiled feverishly into the small hours of the night creating ballads of loss and self-deprecation, in hopes of illuming the world with their particularly despondent brand of mischievousness. Nearly twenty years later, these very same scoundrels have arrived upon your doorstep to drown your sorrows, ease your pains and release your hearts. The Black Heart Procession, purveyors of all things disconsolate, would like to formally invite you to attend a singular event, a forlorn gala, a mournful celebration of the dour. It's your town, your desolation, your reclamation. Join us in the revelry of sorrow, as we honor the 20th anniversary of our first album. Laugh, cry and absolve your sins with us. Together, we'll brighten the world, confront the shadows beneath our beds and... ...well...you could just come to the show in your town where we'll be performing our first record from start to finish, with some extra stuff for the encore. Hope to see you all there, tears of laughter and sorrow alike.

Women Poets at Barnard: A Centennial Celebration of Gwendolyn Brooks - Barnard College November 16, 2017 - New York

A major American poet of the twentieth century, Gwendolyn Brooks is a writer of great formal mastery and intimate observation, most beautifully of the Chicago communities she writes of, the people who make "a sugar of/The malocclusions, the inconditions of love." The author of twenty separate volumes of poetry, including the celebrated A Street in Bronzeville (1945), the Pulitzer Prize-winning Annie Allen (1949), and In the Mecca (1968), as well as the experimental novel Maude Martha (1953) and other volumes of prose and collected verse, Brooks is a writer who "managed to bridge the gap between the academic poets of her generation in the 1940s and the young black militant writers of the 1960s" (George E. Kent). In her work, "Brooks never feared or shirked what she fervently believed was her responsibility; that sense of responsibility shaped her very aesthetic. Few poets walk with such integrity" (Elizabeth Alexander).

A/J Jackson (vocals), Aaron Sharp (guitar), Dak Lerdamornpong (bass), Greg Erwin (drums) The year before making their breakthrough with a mainstage performance at Coachella and the chart topping single "My Type," Saint Motel had planned to host an event of their own called "saintmotelevision"—a multimedia spectacular of music, dance, comedy, art, and more that was shut down by authorities before it even took place. "That crazy mixture of worlds and ideas is something we've always gravitated toward," says front man A/J Jackson in reflecting on the original saintmotelevision. "We've always been fans of strange combinations, and that glorious yet doomed event became a symbol of all that." So when it came time to create their forthcoming full-length debut for Elektra, the band reclaimed the name saintmotelevision and, in the end, dreamed up an album as magnificently kaleidoscopic as that mythic party itself. Featuring production from the likes of Lars Stalfors (Cold War Kids) and Tim Pagnotta (Walk The Moon)—as well as from Jackson, in and around the band's own studio in downtown L.A.—saintmotelevision builds off 2014's My Type EP with a sound even more expansive and artfully genre-blurring. And with its effervescent melodies and shapeshifting grooves, the album emerges as a beautifully alchemized piece of alt-pop, every bit the "channel-surfing odyssey" its namesake was meant to be. Lead single "Move" serves as saintmotelevision's opening track, a psych-rock-tinged dancefloor anthem with a chorus so catchy that—during Saint Motel's raucous sets at summer festivals like Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo—audience members instantly shouted along despite never having heard the song before. In the lyric video for "Move," Saint Motel have also unveiled their latest undertaking as a decidedly visually-oriented group: the so-called "virtualizer," which combines 360° animation and virtual reality technology that allows each viewer a chance to experience the music in a fully immersive manner. Throughout saintmotelevision, the band transforms their infinite inspirations into songs that radiate an electric, unabashed joy. On "Getaway," for instance, Saint Motel shape their fascination with Donna Summers' "I Feel Love" into a shimmering, intensely charged pop number powered by massive piano riffs. With "Destroyer" (as in "I don't break hearts, I destroy them"), the band echoes the seductive danger in the song's lyrics by bringing in some fantastically trashed-up horns a la Exile on Main St.–era Rolling Stones. Meanwhile, on "Sweet Talk," Saint Motel channel Iggy Pop-inspired swagger into a stomp-and-clap-driven heavy-hitter destined for sing-along status.

The Music of Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston - Club Bonafide November 16, 2017 - New York

The Music of Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston 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 Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston 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.

"…The job of the poet is to tell the truth. An archive of poetics is an archive of the truth, or an account from the point of view of thousands of contributors of what the truth has been at various times, in various contexts, various definitions of the truth." – Steven Taylor This Fact Craft workshop is an experiment of truth-telling. The experiment is concerned with the construct of time as we know it, it's rendering amongst people of color and the practice of writing through time. We urge the participants to grapple with the question: What is the truth-telling you want to embody in your writing? As archivist and researcher, the artists facilitating this workshop offer their understanding and relationship to the archive as praxis and context for which writers can reference and grasp. Through deep analytical reading and writing prompts, we invite writers to initiate and harness their creative practices through this lens.

Block by Block: Christopher Gray's New York - Museum of the City of New York November 16, 2017 - New York

As the founder and writer of The New York Times "Streetscapes" column, architectural historian Christopher Gray wrote more than 1,450 articles between 1987 and 2014 in which he lovingly highlighted New York City's everyday buildings with his characteristically wry sense of humor. Gray's passion for exploring the city's design also prompted him to create the Office for Metropolitan History in 1975, a research site committed to bringing together disparate sources in individual collections about City buildings, thereby making their history more accessible to everyone, from tenants to scholars. To honor the passing of Christopher Gray (1950-2017), join us for a conversation with his friends and colleagues about his work and lasting legacy.

"I'm just some random from Melbourne." Alex Lahey likes to keep it real. The 24-year-old Australian musician takes her rise up the ranks from music student to 'an artist with one of the most highly anticipated debut albums of 2017' in her stride. Lahey sees her life as ordinary: "I fall in love, I have a family, I go out with my friends, I like to have a drink." However, most people can't distil those universal experiences into wry, punchy indie-rock songs - three minute odes to millennial angst and all the complicated feelings that come with it. Alex Lahey can. 'Love You Like A Brother' is proof.

In Mrs. Osmond, his vivid and poignant new novel about a wholly modern woman, John Banville imagines a sequel to Henry James's The Portrait of a Lady. "He is one of the great living masters of English-language prose," wrote the Los Angeles Times. Claire Messud's new novel, The Burning Girl, is a hypnotic coming-of-age story about the bond of best friends and a complex portrait of female adolescence. "She has the imagination, the craft and the understanding of human nature to write about anything she chooses," wrote the Chicago Tribune.

With her debut solo album Ya Nass (2013), Yasmine Hamdan introduced her personal, modern take on Arabic pop. In Al Jamilat ('The Beautiful Ones'), she pursues her musical exploration, while taking a look at the mutations at work within the Arab world. While Yasmine's vocals are definitely connected to traditions of Arabic music (to which she takes an unconventional and fresh approach), the structures and arrangements of the songs are very remote from its codes, and take in elements from contemporary Western electronic, pop and folk music. Her unique vision is fully realised in this new album, which she jointly produced with UK producers Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, Lily Allen) and Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Carl Bara?t), and recorded with contributions from NY musicians Shahzad Ismaily (Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, John Zorn, Marc Ribot) and Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley. Yasmine is a wanderer, she's lived in half a dozen countries and has been immersed in as many cultures. The making of this album couldn't therefore be anything else but a voyage, during which she collected and merged sounds & ideas, interacting along the way with a variety of people, nurturing her reflections and enriching the sociopolitical awareness which always runs through her lyrics. The release of the Ya Nass album has been getting tremendous attention in Europe and America, as well as in North Africa and the Middle East (where Yasmine Hamdan has enjoyed iconic stature since the days of Soapkills, the duet she had founded in her native Beirut, which was one of the first indie/electronic bands in the Middle East). She's performed prestigious shows on four continents (including a series of concerts for the launch of the Jim Jarmusch movie "Only Lovers Left Alive", in which she's featured singing, onscreen, in one of the film's most memorable scenes). Let's hear what Yasmine tells us about the recording of her new album: Yasmine Hamdan on Al Jamilat For this album, I decided to take the lead. I went to NY with 11 demos/sketches that I had finalised in trains, planes, hotel rooms etc, while on the road touring for the Ya Nass album. I recorded for five days at Sonic Youth's studio in Hoboken. My friend Steve Shelley (who also performs drums on this record) helped me to organise those sessions. Almost none of the musicians had heard the demos before, so they came to the studio with fresh ears. Shahzad Ismaily, whom Steve had brought in, is a great multi-instrumentalist, he recorded many of the parts on this record. I had written & programmed several violin sections and had them performed by Canadian, NY-based violin player Magali Charron. My musician friend Cesar Urbina, programmed a stumbling, Kuwaiti desert groove that I wanted to reproduce in one track (now entitled Ta3ala). I did some more recordings in Paris with fellow musicians, and in Beirut, with Zeid Hamdan (my ex- bandmate in Soapkills). I had tons of material to edit so from there, I started restructuring the songs. The album was finalised in London by British producers Luke Smith and Leo Abraham. They completed the production, recorded some more instruments, re-shaped the sound and mixed the album in its final form. I try to do records with a great number of moods. The songs on this record matured in an organic way throughout the process. There are many ideas that came together in the editing phase because the context allowed it. The journey had to be nomadic, uprooted, a bit like my life. It had to be planned somewhat hazardously, allowing coincidences to happen. That versatile context had a major influence on the sound. When I am composing, I want to explore different possibilities of textures and grooves together, regardless of where they come from or what they refer to, regardless of codes and formats. I am interested in exploring encounters where worlds meet, beyond musical genres or musical worlds. I like to find this place where the mix becomes intuitive, and where the encounter with Arabic music becomes effortless. It fits me, because I belong to different places, I've lived different cultures and I have learned to appropriate and create from a hybridized point of view. I actually see that as a creative asset, something rather liberating. I think being plural and having mixed identities is a state in which many people find themselves today. The recording process involved a selection of Middle Eastern and Asian instruments, Gulf/Iraqi grooves, Tuareg-like guitars, peculiar buzuk sounds, along with more usual guitars riffs, drums, and modern pop synths and beats. Rhythmic loops were created from live drums, or vintage/sample loops and sometimes from organic sounds that carry a flavour of ethnic sounding percussion. Violins and harmonium bring colours to some songs, sometimes with shades of Indian, Asian and desert melodies. The album was made in a context of movement, travel, being on the road. There is a social and political dimension underlining most of the songs, a.o. in the feminine characters/psychologies I create. The starting point for some of my lyrics comes from people I engaged with. Such as, for example, taxi drivers in Beirut, who are outspoken, very political, and have interesting insights about all realms of society. Many have reached a boiling point, caused by a rotten political and economical system. I have met unusual characters, ex-criminals, perverts, war fighters, gigolos, poets, drug addicts. Interacting with all these people was a real inspiration. Their anger echoes a sense of hopelessness, and the mixed feelings I have regarding the ongoing turmoil in Lebanon and the region. All songs are original but one, the Mahmoud Darwish poem, Al Jamilat (which gave its title to the album) for which I wrote the music and melody. As for my own lyrics, my top ten list of topics are relationships, manipulation, self-reflection, self-mocking, deception, lust, sin, fear, love and rebellion. The song Al Jamilat encapsulates the overall spirit of the album. Darwish's poem is an ode to womanhood, celebrating beauty in multiplicity and contradictions. I like to imagine female characters in my songs as being ambivalent and dominant. They often use humour, sarcasm, or devotion as powerful means of seduction. They're bold, with restraint, which is what underlines their strength. I see those feminine characters as skillful witnesses, non-conventional and non-perfect figures of change, redemption and awakening. They do not serve their home, fatherland, or religion: They express themselves in some mode of life that is personal, emancipated and free. -Yasmine Hamdan More on Yasmine Hamdan Hailed as 'Arabic music's modern voice' (New York Times), Lebanese singer- songwriter Yasmine Hamdan first emerged onto the music scene with Soapkills, the pioneering indie electronic band she founded along with Zeid Hamdan in Beirut in the late '90s. The band gradually acquired an emblematic status and, to this day, Yasmine is considered an underground icon throughout the Arab world. Later moving to Paris, Yasmine teamed up with Madonna's producer Mirwais, and under the Y.A.S. moniker, recorded the album Arabology, released in 2009 by Universal France. In 2012, Yasmine joined forces with Nouvelle Vague's Marc Collin to produce her debut solo album, Ya Nass, released by Crammed Discs in Europe in 2013 and in Japan and the USA in early 2014. One of the album's tracks, 'Hal' was featured in Jim Jarmusch's film Only Lovers Left Alive and was a contender for the 2014 Oscar Award for Best Original Song. 'Ya Nass' has received wide critical acclaim across Europe, North America and the Arab region, with major media outlets including CNN, BBC World News, Arte, ZDF, France 24, NPR, KCRW, France Inter, Le Figaro, Le Monde, The Guardian, The Herald Tribune, UK Metro, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, Al Hayat and Al Arabiya praising her work. She has been a guest on British television's top live music show 'Later... with Jools Holland' on the BBC, and on NPR's popular American music show, Tiny Desk Concerts. 'Ya Nass' also made it onto the NPR list of Best World Music Albums for 2014 and the song 'Deny' from the album was featured on NPR's Favourite Songs of 2014 list. A seasoned performer, Yasmine has appeared on stages around the world, including the Sydney Opera House (Australia), Byblos Music Festival (Lebanon), Olympia, Trianon & Gai?te? Lyrique (Paris), Francofolies (Montreal), Meltdown Festival, Glastonbury, Roundhouse & Royal Albert Hall (London), Haus Der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), Qasr El Nil (Cairo) Sziget Festival (Hungary), Akbank Festival (Istanbul) and Kyoto Music Exposition Festival (Kyoto). Over the last ten years, beyond releasing albums and performing across the globe, Yasmine has composed film scores and developed several artistic projects, including an original piece for the TED video, 'The Power of X'. She has collaborated with movie directors such as Elia Suleiman, Ghassan Salhab & more, and has written music for a Come?die Franc?aise production of a play by Syrian playwright Saadallah Wannous. In the summer of 2014, Yasmine was honoured with the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres title by the French Minister of Culture. Today, Yasmine is the only Arab vocalist singing in Arabic on stage for audiences worldwide from Tokyo to the USA.

LPR Presents at Brooklyn Bazaar : New Myths / Roya / Fruit & Flowers - (Le) Poisson Rouge November 16, 2017 - New York

Blending fuzzy rock guitars with synthesizers and haunting vocal harmonies, NEW MYTHS create a sound that catches you and keeps you. A Brooklyn-based power trio with a new wave/grunge/pop sensibility, NEW MYTHS is the collaboration of Brit Boras (guitar/lead vocals), Rosie Slater (drums/vocals), & Marina Ross (bass/vocals). The trio set out to write music that they loved, and started by combining elements of bands that influenced them such as Garbage, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nirvana, The Pretenders, Alanis Morisette, Hole, and The Bangles. They have cumulatively performed & recorded with other bands such as Frank Ocean, Total Slacker, Steve Van Zandt, Frankie Rose, Future Punx & Kristin Kontrol. After releasing their self-titled EP in 2012, their song "False Gold" was featured by Lou Reed on his XM radio station as well as in surf company REEF's spring ad campaign. In 2014, NEW MYTHS released their debut album "Give Me Noise" via their own imprint Taming Ghosts. Building a following with a powerful live show, both The New York Times and The Gaurdian wrote up NEW MYTHS as top performers to see at CMJ Music Festival 2014. Since then, NEW MYTHS have opened for major acts such as Metric & Warpaint. They are currently recording their follow-up release. Roya, the poetic persian name of a little girl means an ominous dream, a mind trip, a fantasy. Such was the vision lead singer Rahill Jamalifard first had when hatching the idea for the band. A moody and seductive tone set against a primitive and surreal soundscape. Lending its voice to somber echoes and jangles of post punk and psychedelia. How often we wander to the uncomfortable depths of our darker minds, where unanswered questions live, where they stay carefully tucked away, still existing, unaddressed. In Roya, the exploration begins, confronting the fears and realities we struggle with. The mediocrity of life, complacency, death and its undoings, life and its great fragility, Roya invades the minds and hearts of its listeners greeting them with unwavering emotion. The band's early formation consisting of singer Rahill Jamalifard, guitarist Jay Heislemann and drummer Hamish Kilgour set the foundation for Roya's deliberately minimal sound. Kilgour, notable as a founding member of New Zealand's seminal post punk band The Clean, plays shambolic and primitive driving drumbeats that add layers of depth and texture to his boldness. Heislmann's guitar spills over Kilgour's rhythmic web with deconstructed eastern surf riffs dripping wet with noisy undertones. This melodically demented outfit cradle Jamalifard's stark and naked vocals that paint over each chorus with grief-stricken and doleful lyrics that are raw but gentle in delivery. Joined later by contributing song writer and guitarist Christian Sawyer, whose presence was brief but significant, the band began to record their self titled debut record at the now defunct Death By Audio recording studio. Joining them during this time was bassist Alix Brown, whose spirited gusto added attitude and swagger with her driving grooves. In its current formation Roya is a five piece ensemble with Tyler Love on rhythm guitar and mellotron and Lyla Vander on drums. Their debut record is set to be released by Burger Records in June 2017. Fruit & Flowers are one of the most active bands in the NYC area, and have been deemed one of "NYC's Hardest Working Bands" by Oh My Rockness. The band embarked on its third tour of 2017 in July to Canada and the Midwest in support of their debut EP, Drug Tax. Ana Becker's angular, expressive guitar style and Lyzi Wakefield's gritty rhythmic backbone merge a post-punk heaviness with psychedelic warmth. Committed and charismatic front woman Caroline Yoder summons a fervent energy, surrounded by distinct, warm and refreshing three part harmonies, the bedrock of Fruit and Flowers' sound.

The American Dream and its dark side reside even on Fifth Avenue. The creation of Central Park in the 1870s destined Fifth Avenue, the park's eastern border, to become one of New York's most elegant addresses. But as the wealth moved in, so did chicanery and violence. Great historic mansions housed both perpetrators and victims, sometimes both living together. Learn more on this informative walking tour.

A Year of Bernstein — A 100th-Birthday Celebration Join us as we celebrate Leonard Bernstein's 100th Birthday with a yearlong, 12-lecture series exploring his extraordinary legacy as a composer of theater and concert music, a conductor and a teacher.

The result: a score that must be placed on the short list of the greatest film scores ever written, and a powerful, moving orchestral suite that ranks as one of Bernstein's very best. Using both audio recordings of the score and video of the film itself, we'll dive deeply into this exceptional, politically charged film score and film.

Eddie Martinez's drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor's office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez's drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs. In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a "drawing wall," wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist's incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center's forthcoming exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, will bring the drawing wall to the museum. The artist will paper the gallery with thousands of sketches that he will change throughout the exhibition's run. In addition, several large drawings and paintings will be hung on top of these sketches allowing viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez's practice.

The Store at MAD premieres its new collection of contemporary fine jewelry for sale. "Redefining Fine Jewelry Holiday 2017" marks the third season of The Store's foray into the world of fine jewelry, bringing together a highly curated group of 30 international artists and designers, including 8 jewelers selected for their alternative bridal collections. All of the artists will be present on the evening of the event. Each artist offers a refreshing alternative to the conventional world of fine jewelry, responsive to our changing lifestyles while remaining timeless in the face of the shifting aesthetics of our contemporary lives. "The Store at MAD is delighted to celebrate this cross section of fine jewelers, who speak to our nuanced individuality rather than conform to the idea of 'traditional' jewelry, says Franci Sagar, Vice President of Retail and Brand Development at MAD. "Applying innovative techniques to the highest-quality precious metals and nontraditional gemstones these jewelers are creating inspired pieces that are reshaping the modern heirloom." This edition of RFJ unites Beth Bernstein with Franci as co-curator of the RFJ Holiday 2017. Beth's expertise spans 20 years in the jewelry industry as a journalist/author and design/merchandising/marketing consultant. Beth comments, "RFJ represents a group of designers who are making an indelible mark by challenging the conventions of what fine jewelry means. As a group, these jewelers have helped shape the tastes and standards of today's jewelry collectors- women who embrace this new creativity and have enough confidence to purchase jewelry for themselves." Rooted in the ethos of the Museum to champion work at the intersection of arts, craft, and design and its permanent iconic jewelry collection, The Store at MAD is in a unique position to highlight and celebrate these jewelry artists who fuse design, technique and excellence in craftsmanship. "Our customers like to make their fine jewelry purchases with The Store at MAD because they feel a part of something bigger – something inspiring good and shareable. They like to know that their purchases go toward supporting the artists and the museum. For them it becomes an extension of their social consciousness and a new kind of philanthropy," says Franci. The Store at MAD's entry into bridal jewelry is in keeping with its RFJ philosophy, which focuses on today's woman's desire for jewelry that bespeaks her life and personal style. The bridal range features all categories of jewelry including rings for the bride and groom and earrings and pendants. "Our customers include a diverse range of women, from the twenty to thirty-something's to those who are getting married for the second time or later in life," says Franci. Both value individuality and originality and prefer to stand out rather than blend in. On the opening evening all guests will enjoy a 20% savings on all their purchases. New designers to the store include Baltera, Karen Karch, Megan Thorne, Ruth Tomlinson, Eden Presley, Ruta Reifen, Alberian & Aulde, Chasseur Fine Jewelry, Mimi Favre, GiGi Ferranti, Foundrae, Loriann Jewelry, Moritz Glik, Lene Vibe, Marie Mas, Erica Molinari, Nancy Newberg and Julie Lamb. They will be joining returning jewelers, Stephanie Albertson, Lika Behar, Denise Betesh, Hannah Blount, Stella Flame, Serhat Geridonmez, Joan Hornig, Tony Malmed, Maureen Mauer, Todd Pownell and Suneera.

Actor/cabaret singer Stephanie Trudeau will perform a return engagement of her docu-cabaret, "Chavela: Think Of Me," at Pangea Supper Club, 178 Second Ave. (East Village), November 2, 9 and 16, 2017 at 7:30 PM. As the show's writter and performer, she introduced the show there last Spring and has been invited back in response to the appreciation of her audience and an enthusiastic review. "Chavela:Think of me' is more than just a musical cabaret based on the songs of legendary Mexican singer Chavela Vargas. It is also a documentary theater project that traces the famed ranchera singer's artistic evolution and the key relationships of her life, including those with her musical mentor, Jose Alfredo Jimenez (the world's greatest composer of ranchera songs), the painters Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, the great Cuban courtesan Macorina, and the producers, notably Pedro Almodovar, who enabled her comeback at age 74 after a 15 year battle with alcoholism. Trudeau is accompanied by her arranger, David Lahm on piano and by Ben Lapidus on guitar and percussion. November 2 is a Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, and Ms. Trudeau is planning special visuals to celebrate. "Chavela: Think Of Me" is characterized as a "docu-cabaret," because it combines stories about the iconic singer Chavela Vargas with performances of key songs of her career. The narration is all in English but Vargas' ranchera songs and Latin American pop hits are sung in Spanish with some translated lyrics. The show is illustrated in multimedia containing historical images of the principal characters and their social and artistic milieu. The show has been partly developed under the eye of director Deborah Wright Houston, who is best known for her work as Artistic Director of the critically-acclaimed Kings County Shakespeare Company (1983-2010).

Fact Craft presents In the Middle of Things: The Poetics of Archival Praxis - Pioneer Works November 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

"…The job of the poet is to tell the truth. An archive of poetics is an archive of the truth, or an account from the point of view of thousands of contributors of what the truth has been at various times, in various contexts, various definitions of the truth." – Steven Taylor This Fact Craft workshop is an experiment of truth-telling. The experiment is concerned with the construct of time as we know it, it's rendering amongst people of color and the practice of writing through time. We urge the participants to grapple with the question: What is the truth-telling you want to embody in your writing? As archivist and researcher, the artists facilitating this workshop offer their understanding and relationship to the archive as praxis and context for which writers can reference and grasp. Through deep analytical reading and writing prompts, we invite writers to initiate and harness their creative practices through this lens. Price: $12 Akeema-Zane is a writer, researcher and multidisciplinary artist of Afro-Caribbean descent. She debuted her first solo show, In-Room 1317 in 2014 – a performance reading of a collection of short stories on her boarding school experience as a part of an installation called new renaissance sessions. Her methodology is using intersectionality to configure a blueprint for a life that centers the literary, cinematic and performance traditions. The aforementioned has included being artist-in-residence, student and fellow at Groundation Grenada, Cave Canem and The Maysles Documentary Center; leading writing workshops with the likes of The Harlem Free School; and reading, performing and installing works at Nola Darling, The Schomburg Center, A.I.R Gallery, The New Museum, Cave Canem, No Longer Empty, etc. Additionally she has collaborated with various musicians as a featured artist and producer on songs, and most recently published liner notes to Tamara Renée's album Conjur Woman . Her published works include: There's a Monopoly on Change, On Being the Daughter Discovering the Home of her Descendants…, Interlude, and When Money Can't Buy You Home. Most recently, she performed with a collaborative for the Not Normal Festival at Brick Theater, in an experimental performance entitled Rotten Spring. Akeema-Zane is a native New Yorker. Joyce LeeAnn is an archivist and interdisciplinary artist whose work aims to redefine the archive as a space for healing and transformation. She is a Denver, Colorado native based in New York City. She has worked professionally for Weeksville Heritage Center, the Associated Press Corporate Archives, and the New York Public Library. In 2011, she self-published her first archival text, somethymes grief goes for a walk. In 2013, she co-curated The Finding Aid: Black Women at the Intersection of Art and Archiving event at the Schomburg Center. She has been a Create Change fellow with the Laundromat Project, a member of the Hemispheric Institute's EMERGENYC cohort, and an associate artist during the Betty's Daughter Arts Collaborative's Body Ecology intensive. She has performed her work at New York University, House of Yes, Shades of Burlesque events, Brooklyn Museum, and many other places. Recently, Joyce LeeAnn emancipated her labor through the cultivation of her own archival services business. And she is currently developing an artistic project that unearths her embodied archive and explores the meaning of home. This workshop is the second installation of an ongoing collaboration of concentrated Black women solo practitioners entitled In the Middle of Things. The collaboration saw its first installment in 2015 which featured performances by the aforementioned artists, Taja Lindley and Tamara Renée. Akeema-Zane and Joyce LeeAnn are also in production of a video project.

From Ghetto to Cappella: Interfaith Exchanges in the Music of Baroque Italy - Brotherhood Synagogue November 16, 2017 - New York

From Ghetto to Cappella: Interfaith Exchanges in the Music of Baroque Italy Most recently presented at Temple Emanu-El in partnership with the Carnegie Hall La Serenissima Festival, in Italy at the Teatro all'Antica di Sabbioneta and the Great Synagogue of Florence, we are honored to partner with historic Brotherhood Synagogue in presenting the fourth annual New York performance of From Ghetto to Cappella. While the Inquisition raged throughout Counter-Reformation Italy, the ghetto walls that separated Gentile from Jew were more porous than impenetrable. A lively dialogue between Jewish and Catholic musical cultures traversed the forbidding walls and enriched the music of both Synagogue and Sanctuary at a time of great oppression. Works of Benedetto Marcello, Francesco Durante, Barbara Strozzi, Salomone Rossi, and unaccompanied Hebrew chants attest to a vibrant conversation, as do selections from the 1759 Hebrew libretto of Handel's Esther, commissioned by the Jewish community of Amsterdam in the year of the composer's death. Jessica Gould, soprano & Elena Biscuola, mezzo-soprano; Loren Ludwig, viola da gamba; Charles Weaver, theorbo; Elliott Figg, harpsichord Members of Brotherhood Synagogue, please call the synagogue office for your special discount code.

With an unbridled passion and soul-baring rawness, Michael Blume has been captivating listeners around the country. His debut EP When I Get It Right teems with honeyed vocals, soulful scatting and thoughtful, socially conscious lyrics that are both personal and universal. Fans find solace in his unabashed honesty and intrigue in his tenacious commitment to remaining true to himself. Selling out multiple live shows, including New York City's famed Bowery Ballroom, he enchants audiences with confessional and inspirational performances. With a musical background rooted in a cappella, Blume effortlessly produces complex vocal arrangements that showcase his comprehensive musicianship and perfectly complement his stellar range. Whether backed by his stripped-down, acoustic 5-piece band or his signature 11-piece band, his live performance shines. Released in July 2016, When I Get It Right has garnered major acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, ABC, Pigeons & Planes, Earmilk, Hilly Dilly, Popdust, OkayPlayer, PopMatters and more. Perfectly showcasing his unique mix of R&B, neo-soul, hip-hop, jazz, and electronica, Blume blends unparalleled vocal prowess with evocative lyrics. "Manufactured Love" was the first single which Blume independently released in July 2015, an intimate and impressive first taste of what was to come. The song found fans on its own, spending 6 weeks on Spotify's US and Canadian Viral 50 Chart and eventually claiming the #1 spot on its Alternative R&B chart. It was also included on Spotify's "Fresh Finds" playlist. Additionally, Apple Music featured the project on the cover of iTunes as a "New Artist" to watch. His second single "Colors" premiered via Hilly Dilly, and led him to be favorably compared to Frank Ocean by Pigeons & Planes. "I've learned quickly to trust my process and my journey -- especially in the upside down world of the music industry. 'Colors' is a song about faith in myself, trusting my abilities and my path," explains Blume.

A Special Edition of Bowl Train feat. TALIB KWELI: RADIO SILENCE ALBUM RELEASE EXTRAVAGANZA - Brooklyn Bowl November 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

Palm plays rock music backwards. Their songs bear a certain methodology, though there is a tendency towards impulse which seems almost violently opposed to it. The band deals willfully in contradictions like this. The elements of any given song fit together like slightly melted puzzle pieces, serving up rigidity and looseness in equal measure. Palm songs imply architecture, but their compositional structures are somehow bound by different rules of physics than the ones we know. Lattices of guitar language (provided by Eve Alpert and Kasra Kurt) intersect the rhythmic organism characterized by the twitchy throb of Gerasimos Livitsanos' bass and the careless tumble of Hugo Stanley's drums, with a layer of disembodied vocals draped atop the whole thing. Emotional yet clinical, wild yet contained, the sounds they offer are equally bizarre as they are pleasantly pretty.

Preview Screening of Darkest Hour with guests Gary Oldman and director Joe Wright - 92nd Street Y November 16, 2017 - New York

After clips from his career and a preview screening of Darkest Hour, Academy Award nominated actor Gary Oldman will be joined onstage by the film's director Joe Wright for a conversation with moderator Annette Insdorf. In the role of Winston Churchill, Oldman received rave reviews at the Telluride Film Festival. His previous films include recurring roles in the Harry Potter series as well as the Batman films, Sid and Nancy, Prick Up Your Ears, Leon: the Professional, JFK (as Lee Harvey Oswald), Immortal Beloved (as Beethoven), State of Grace, Bram Stoker's Dracula and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (for which he received an Academy Award nomination). Joe Wright is the director of such acclaimed films as Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, Hanna and Anna Karenina. The cast of Darkest Hour includes Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Stephen Dillane and Kristin Scott Thomas as Clementine Churchill. Variety wrote about this film, "Set during the crucial first days of Winston Churchill's term as prime minister, this talky, yet stunningly cinematic history lesson balances the great orator's public triumphs with more vulnerable private moments of self-doubt, elevating the inner workings of British government into a compelling piece of populist entertainment."

O Brother, Where Art Thou? 2000. Directed by Joel Coen - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art November 16, 2017 - New York

O Brother, Where Art Thou? 2000. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Based on The Odyssey, by Homer. With George Clooney, John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson. 35mm. 107 min. In the Coen brothers' bluegrass-infused take on Homer's Odyssey, the Cyclops, the Sirens, and Cassandra are transformed into Depression-era characters from Mississippi. On the run from a prison farm, three outlandish convicts somehow become an overnight musical sensation while trying to make their way home. Everett, Peter, and Delmar are blessed with pluck, more than a touch of ignorance, and voices that people want to hear on the radio!

The Wizard of Gore. 1970. Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art November 16, 2017 - New York

The Wizard of Gore. 1970. USA . Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. With Ray Sager, Judy Cler, Wayne Ratay. DCP. 95 min. Director H. G. Lewis visited the basement club in 1981 (not long after his release from prison) as a guest of the Gore Gazette to present his celebration of bloodlust, an explicit rejection of middle-class good taste that also manifested the bod-mod and gender reassignment motifs that united much of Club 57's programming. This gruesome tale, about a magician whose performances involve the mutilation and gory deaths of his human subjects, is the kind of horror fare produced for the exploitation market in the 1970s and '80s—which has since become a mainstream genre.

Steve Sandberg Steve Sandberg is an eclectic musician with a lifetime of experience in many worlds of music. He is a three-time Emmy-nominated composer whose scoring, songwriting and musical direction for "Dora the Explorer", "Go, Diego, Go!" and "Dora and Friends" helped make these shows the landmarks they are in children's television worldwide. He began classical piano studies at age 4 and won a BMI composers award before attending Yale University, where he majored in musical theory and composition. At Yale, his studies with noted African art theorist Robert Farris Thompson inspired him to immerse himself in the world of Afro-Caribbean music. Upon returning to NYC he played with, arranged and composed for some of the great salsa artists of the 1970s and 1980s, including Celia Cruz, Ruben Blades, and Daniel Ponce (featuring Tito Puente).

These concerts were heavily influenced by his studies of North Indian raga singing. His latest project is the Steve Sandberg Quartet. SSQ concerts begin with performances from the solo piano repertoire (including original compositions), and continue with the quartet's soaring improvisations on originals that draw from European, African, Latin, Balkan and Indian traditions. One listener described the experience as listening to "music from a country I've never been to but always wanted to visit." The group made its debut in June, 2016, with a sold-out show at the DiMenna Center in NYC. The first CD, Alaya, was released on artistShare in June, 2017, and has been enthusiastically received with rave reviews on Allaboutjazz (https://www.allaboutjazz.com/alayasteve- sandberg-artist-share-review-by-dan-bilawsky ), Sea of Tranquility (http://seaoftranquility.org/reviews.php? op=showcontent&id=20275) and other media.

John Cale:The Velvet Underground & Nico (Program A) - Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Through November 17, 2017 - Brooklyn

Program A: 50th Anniversary of The Velvet Underground & Nico Curated by John Cale Members of Wordless Music Orchestra Presented in association with Wordless Music Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival The inveterate experimentalist who melded rock with the avant-garde, John Cale (Paris 1919 and A Tribute to Nico, 2012 Next Wave) has exerted an incalculable influence on the last half-century of popular music, from punk to noise to chamber pop. He returns to BAM for a three-night celebration of his life and art. For the first two nights, Cale is accompanied by members of the Wordless Music Orchestra and special guests to perform the album that charted the course of underground music for decades to come. Fifty years after its release, The Velvet Underground & Nico remains a raw, bracing transmission from the downtown demimonde of 1960s New York City, combining Lou Reed's streetwise lyrics, Nico's husky contralto, and Cale's Fluxus-inspired electric viola. In the final evening of this engagement, Cale celebrates 75 years, backed by the Wordless Music Orchestra and Chorus. They perform selections from his legendary, impossible-to-pin-down career, including his landmark work with the Velvet Underground, the baroque pop perfection of Paris 1919, pioneering forays into drone minimalism, and beyond.

Hosted by Georgia Clark Featuring Actress Yael Stone, (Orange Is The New Black) Model Jennie Runk Activist Barbara Collins Bowie Author Caroline Leavitt (Pictures of You) Comedian Shalewa Sharpe (Stay Eating Cookies) Author Marina Budhos (Watched) $25 Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling event that amplifies women's voices and creativity. This unique and intimate female symposium, held monthly at Caveat, features representative speakers in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties and seventy-and-over presenting short original essays and experiences centered on a given topic. Host and event co-founder Georgia Clark (author of The Regulars and the YA novels She's with the Band and Parched), was moved to create Generation Women following conversations with her mother, Jayne, about the sense that women disappear from public conversation as they get older. Clark was inspired to create a safe and welcoming space where women of all ages could join together to be celebrated, explore their experiences and learn from one another. "We live in a society that simply doesn't value older women," says Clark. "With Generation Women, we've created an event where women can come together to tell their own stories and glean vital and vibrant cross-generational wisdom. Also, we can drink wine. Wine is very important." Generation Women combines the vivacity of a literary salon with the importance of a community meeting where elders and youth exchange shared wisdom. In an aggressively dark political moment, this monthly event showcases the hearts and minds of strong women when we need them most. All are welcome to join and learn. The next edition of Generation Women is scheduled for Monday, December 4 at Caveat. The theme for November's performance: The Skin I'm In.

They’ve done their part; they haven't prepared a thing. It's now time for you to do your part. Just sit back, relax and get ready to call out whatever is on your mind...a word...a phrase...an idea.

Luna, the New York-based quartet, were last seen on stage in February 2005. In 2015 they will play their first shows in ten years. Luna recorded 8 studio albums between 1992 and 2005. The current touring lineup is the exact '99-'05 group that recorded Luna Live!, Romantica, Close Cover Before Striking, and Rendezvous: Dean Wareham and Sean Eden on guitar, Lee Wall on drums, and Britta Phillips on bass. At their best, it's hard to believe there is any other kind of music besides this simple, graceful, chiming chug — the Guardian One of indie rocks' most beloved live acts — Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone Dean Wareham has an unlikely quiver of a voice that, for whatever ungodly reason, sounds as if he's survived something his music alludes to but never gives away — Jerry Stahl A handful of records and songs that will accompany me forever – Ignacio Julia,Chris Forsyth is a lauded guitarist and composer whose work assimilates art-rock textures with vernacular American influences. Long active in underground circles, he's recently released a string of acclaimed records of widescreen guitar rock, and in 2013, he assembled The Solar Motel Band, who have quickly developed a reputation as an incredible live act, provoking ecstatic comparisons to visionary artists such as Television, The Grateful Dead, Popul Vuh, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Richard Thompson. The volatile chemistry of the Solar Motel Band is evidenced on their Solar Live 10.15.13 LP (Electric Ragtime), recorded live in Philadelphia and released in spring 2014. Intensity Ghost, the first studio album by Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band was released to universal acclaim in October 2014 on the No Quarter label. It's been named one of the best releases of 2014 by Uncut (#34) and the New Yorker. Aquarium Drunkard called it "pure unadulterated guitar heaven - classic rock remade." The Quietus said, "It's just immense." His newest release with The Solar Motel Band is the double album The Rarity of Experience (No Quarter), released in March 2016. Raves have been universal. Pitchfork called it "a near-perfect balance between 70s rock tradition and present day experimentation," NPR Music named Forsyth "one of rock's most lyrical guitar improvisors," and the New York Times calls him "a scrappy and mystical historian… His music humanizes the element of control in rock classicism (and) turns it into a woolly but disciplined ritual."

Flying Pages (Hojas de Papel Volando) - Baruch Performing Arts Center Through November 17, 2017 - New York

With the restoration of Cuban-American diplomatic relations comes the opportunity to experience the work of artists not seen in America for nearly 90 years. Roxana Pineda, Cuban theatre-maker, will perform her Hojas de Papel Volando, a dialogue with the poetry of Colombian artist, Patricia Ariza. Recently honored by the League of Professional Theatre Women, Ariza has made a life long commitment to building bridges that connect theatre to society and politics on a daily basis. Accompanying discussions will explore the subject of art as activism, and how art-making is impacted during periods of political change.

On select Friday nights at 6:15 p.m., artists will talk about their work and present sonic experiences in the intimate setting of The World Is Sound exhibition. This week's edition features visual artist Rudy Shepherd in conversation with the Rubin Museum's Director of Programs and Engagement, Tim McHenry. Shepherd's work is featured in the current exhibition The World Is Sound. Admission to the Museum's galleries is free every Friday from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. Tickets for the talk are free but limited in availability and given on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 5:45 p.m. Limit two tickets per person. An ASL interpreter will be present at the event. The World Is Sound exhibition is made possible through the generosity of HARMAN. Major support is provided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and Rasika and Girish Reddy. The Rubin also thanks Preethi Krishna and Ram Sundaram and contributors to the 2017 Exhibitions Fund. Rudy Shepherd's work explores the nature of evil through the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, and performance. This exploration involves investigations into the lives of criminals and victims of crime. He explores the complexity of these stories and the gray areas between innocence and guilt in a series of paintings and drawings of both the criminals and the victims, making no visual distinctions between the two. Going along with these portraits is a series of sculptures called the Black Rock Negative Energy Absorbers and Healing Devices.

Philadelphia's Circa Survive was formed by former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green with guitarist Colin Frangicetto -- both of them veterans of the local emo and hardcore scenes looking to indulge in the rule-breaking freedom of the neo-progressive movement of the mid-2000s. After Green and Frangicetto discovered likeminded bandmates in second guitarist Brendan Ekstrom, bassist Nick Beard, and drummer Steve Clifford, Circa Survive recorded their debut album, Juturna (named after a Roman goddess), for Equal Vision Records in 2005. Lots of touring followed, including Warped Tour dates, and the album steadily sold close to an impressive 100,000 copies. A spot on the 2007 Coachella festival led into the late May release of Circa Survive's follow-up, On Letting Go. The band's latest effort Blue Sky Noise was release in April of 2010.

Mark Mulcahy is the former singer of the well regarded and influential Miracle Legion. He also formed the band Polaris and wrote the music for the Nickelodeon show 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete'. Mark's solo career began with Fathering, an album that received universal praise including Album Of The Month in Uncut and Album Of The Week in The Guardian and featured the track "Hey Self Defeater" which was featured in Nick Hornby's book 31 Songs. From there followed the albums Smilesunset and In Pursuit Of Your Happiness, several tours of the UK and Europe, countless radio sessions and huge critical acclaim for both his songwriting prowess and his remarkable voice. In 2008 he quit everything to look after his children following the tragic death of his wife. To assist him through these troubled times many of his long-time friends and fans banded together to record an album of his songs as a tribute to his wife and the result was 2009's Ciao My Shining Star, featuring the likes of Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke, Frank Black, Mercury Rev, Dinosaur Jr, The National, and many others. Mark Mulcahy will embark on his first solo tour in three years. A short run of 10 dates in November will begin a year of endless live performance. Mark has been touring with his other bands, Miracle legion and Polaris for the past few years.

With a sound that's driving and plaintive, contemplative and catchy, Turnover capture the uncertainty of emo-pop greats like the Get Up Kids and Texas Is the Reason. Based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia, the quartet, made up of Casey and Austin Getz, Danny Dempsey, and Eric Soucy, jumped onto the scene in 2011 with a self-titled EP. A split single with Citizen followed the next year before the band would make its full-length debut in early 2013 with Magnolia on Run for Cover Records. Their sophomore release 2015's Peripheral Vision represented a shift in style toward more melodic, dreamy indie rock.

Civil rights activist Hu Jia was held under house arrest from 2004 to 2008 in the upscale eastern suburbs of Beijing.

For his third and final project as 2017 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow, DeForrest Brown Jr. presents "Xenopoietic Deviations," a radical new lecture-as-performance, composed in segments by theorist Inigo Wilkins and Berlin-based digital artist and producer Lars "TCF" Holdhus. Decomposing the multiple time-scales and levels of information processing in auditory cognition, from sub-millisecond unconscious inferences to meso-scale continuities, "Xenopoietic Deviations" is an ecstatic rendering of the subject matter of Irreversible Noise, Wilkins' forthcoming book for Urbanomic into a rapturous performance piece and lecture. Deep in the realm of synthetic abstractions, TCF and Wilkins work in conversation and across disciplines (science, philosophy, and politics as well as visual media and music) to manipulate the hypothesis space of listening.

David Lynch's 1977 debut feature, Eraserhead, is both a lasting cult sensation and a work of extraordinary craft and beauty. With its mesmerizing black-and-white photography by Frederick Elmes and Herbert Cardwell, evocative sound design, and unforgettably enigmatic performance by Jack Nance, this visionary nocturnal odyssey continues to haunt American cinema like no other film. "Lynch's films, in particular, are nearly every bit as powerful and disturbing if you close your eyes and just listen to them… Even when Henry is just walking the streets of Philadelphia at the outset of [Eraserhead], he's doing so within an evocative aural landscape that mirrors the visual one. And then there's the scene that most thoroughly creeps me out, in which Henry has dinner at his girlfriend's house. In its broad strokes, this is essentially the same idea as Meet The Parents—awkward young dude does his best to make small talk, encounters darkly comic weirdness at every turn—but Lynch's conception of "darkly comic weirdness" has its own flavor. And a uniquely discomfiting soundscape to match." —Mike D'Angelo, the A.V. Club About Cabaret Cinema: Soundtrack You can probably name the best movie you've seen, but what about the best movie you've heard? It might be your favorite because of its sound effects, sound engineering, score, or another element of the audio experience.

"A bewitching masterpiece." - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times "See Belladonna now or be damned to perdition!" - Robert Brenner, The Huffington Post "Belladonna of Sadness is a major re-discovery." - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, A.V. Club One of the great lost masterpieces of Japanese animation, never before officially released in the U.S., BELLADONNA OF SADNESS is a mad, swirling, psychedelic light-show of medieval tarot-card imagery with horned demons, haunted forests and La Belle Dame Sans Merci, equal parts J.R.R. Tolkien and gorgeous, explicit Gustav Klimt-influenced eroticism. The last film in the adult-themed Animerama trilogy produced by the godfather of Japanese anime & manga, Osamu Tezuka and directed by his long time collaborator Eiichi Yamamoto ("ASTRO BOY" and "KIMBA THE WHITE LION"), BELLADONNA unfolds as a series of spectacular still watercolor paintings that bleed and twist together. An innocent young woman, Jeanne (voiced by Aiko Nagayama) is violently raped by the local lord on her wedding night. To take revenge, she makes a pact with the Devil himself (voiced by Tatsuya Nakadai, from Akira Kurosawa's RAN) who appears as an erotic sprite and transforms her into a black-robed vision of madness and desire. Extremely transgressive and not for the easily offended, BELLADONNA is fueled by a mindblowing Japanese psych rock soundtrack by noted avant-garde jazz composer Masahiko Satoh. The film has been newly restored by Cinelicious Pics using the original 35mm camera negative and sound elements - and including over 8 minutes of surreal and explicit footage cut from the negative. On par with Rene Laloux's FANTASTIC PLANET and Ralph Bakshi's WIZARDS as an LSD-stoked 1970s head trip, BELLADONNA marks a major rediscovery for animation fans. If Led Zeppelin had a favorite film, this would be it. In other words, Stairway to Hell. Dir. Eiichi Yamamoto. 86 min. Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.

ARKELLS: MORNING REPORT NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE AUGUST 5THPRODUCED BY: JOE CHICCARELLI (THE STROKES, MY MORNING JACKET), TONY HOFFER (BECK, M83), BRIAN WEST (SIA, AWOLNATION), GUS VAN GO (THE STILLS, WINTERSLEEP) "It's a weird time to be a rock band right now," observes Max Kerman, the singer, guitarist, and chief songwriter for the Arkells. "I just feel like rock has gotten so conservative and doesn't know where to go. To be honest, I don't really listen to a lot of rock music right now."That's not a radical statement for your average twenty-something in this EDM-dominated era, but it's a bit surprising coming from a guitar-slinging guy whose band seemingly personifies a certain old-school, ethic. Hailing from the gritty industrial outpost of Hamilton, Ontario, the Arkells have notched four Juno Awards and a gold record on their sweat-rusted belts, proving there's still a place for passionate, no-bullshit rock 'n' soul in the mainstream. (In 2015, they were the most-played band on Canadian alt-rock radio.) But the group's new album, Morning Report, betrays a more irreverent, adventurous ethos that more readily recalls the cut-and-paste approach of hip-hop beatmakers than the plug-and-play attack of a live rock band, with click-tracked rhythms, subliminal samples, electronic pulses, and sax and violins threaded into the richly textured mix. Certainly, this is the Arkells' most eclectic album to date, from the piano-pounded, "California Love"-schooled swagger of "Private School" to the silver-lined break-up song "My Heart's Always Yours," the sort of ascendant, blood-pumping anthem you can easily imagine sparking an arena full of waving illuminated smartphones. But if the Arkells have mostly scrubbed away the surface soot of their Hamilton-spawned sound, lyrically, Kerman's songwriting hits even closer to home. "A lot of the songs are about me and characters in my life: my friends, my parents, my girlfriend," Kerman says. "And a lot of times, they're songs about what happened the night before. So that's why it's called Morning Report: you text your friend the next day and it's like, 'Give me the morning report!'"But Morning Report balances tales of last night's debauchery with more sobering examinations of a time in life that doesn't get much play in rock music: your late-twenties. It's the phase when all your friends start getting married, your parents suddenly decide to get divorced, and long-distance relationships hit their shit-orget-off-the-pot breaking point. But while melancholic, meditative ballads like "Passenger Seat"and "Come Back Home" provide unflinching portraits of marriages on the brink of collapse, rousing, soul-powered sing-alongs like "A Little Rain" pay poignant tribute to the friendships that help you through the tough times, and provide that much-needed shoulder to cry on. "That's another thing that's so conservative about white-guy indie rock," says Kerman. "What makes Drake so awesome is he just puts all his emotions right on the table for you to see. All of these songs and stories come from a genuine place for me."The morning reports we get from our friends may arrive through smartphone screens, but the songs on Morning Report all chronicle face-to-face interactions—with all the intimacy, intensity and awkwardness they entail. "This is our weirdest, funniest, saddest record yet," Kerman concludes. "And therefore, our most honest one, too."

Honorary Committee: Page Ashley, Brent Barton & Nikolay Zdravkov, Gail Chesler, Anna DeSimone, Laura Kempster, Stephen M. Weiner & Don Cornuet "Over the past ten years, the Composer Librettist Development Program at ALT has been at the forefront of training the next generation of operatic writers," said Edelson. "There is nothing more satisfying than to see our alumni out in the world, writing incredible new operas, and seeing those works produced around the country - by companies large and small - changing the landscape of contemporary opera. Our 'Toast to Ten Years' gives us a chance to celebrate some of the many successes of our alumni, and to look forward at what the future holds for the CLDP." At the center of the CLDP is ALT's core-curriculum, which consists of classroom training and hands-on workshops with some of the country's leading working artists. For the 2017-18 season, principal faculty mentors will include composer/librettist Mark Adamo; librettist Mark Campbell; dramaturg Cori Ellison; and composer Jake Heggie. In addition, several internationally recognized composers and librettists are invited each season to be guest artists within the classes and workshops of the core-curriculum. Recent and upcoming guest teachers and lecturers include composers Ricky Ian Gordon, David T. Little, Missy Mazzoli, Paul Moravec, Kaija Saariaho, and Stewart Wallace, and librettists Michael Korie, Donna DiNovelli, Gene Scheer, and Royce Vavrek (one of the most prominent alumni of the CLDP). As the program has blossomed over the past ten years, audiences around the country have increasingly been enjoying operas developed through the CLDP and by CLDP alumni at a wide variety of venues, including Lyric Opera of Chicago, Fort Worth Opera, Opera Saratoga, Utah Opera, Tulsa Opera, Los Angeles Opera, and many more. To date, the CLDP has provided intensive, personalized mentorship to 38 artists (with 7 new artists currently in the program), and 15 short chamber operas have been developed under the auspices of the program. Through the CLDP, ALT has commissioned eight full-length operas; and beyond the walls of ALT, alumni artists are at the forefront of creating new operas for companies around the country, including Opera Philadelphia, Washington National Opera, and The Metropolitan Opera. Eighteen new operas by ALT alumni have been commissioned and/or professionally produced since their participation in the CLDP. Of those works, nine of them have received (or are scheduled to receive) at least one additional production beyond their premiere, with four of them receiving three or more productions/presentations. Among the highlights of the 2017-18 season for CLDP alumni are the world premieres of The House Without a Christmas Tree (Ricky Ian Gordon/Royce Vavrek*) at Houston Grand Opera; Steal a Pencil for Me (Gerald Cohen*/Deborah Brevoort*) at Opera Colorado; Proving Up (Missy Mazzoli/Royce Vavrek*) at Washington National Opera, Opera Omaha and The Miller Theater/NYC; and Monkey and Francine in the City of Tigers (Kamala Sankaram*/David Johnston*) at Houston Grand Opera/HGOCo [*denotes alumni of the CLDP]. The Composer Librettist Development Program is made possible with multi-leadership support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, through 2020. The Tenth Anniversary season of the CLDP is also made possible with additional leadership support from The National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Kurt Weill Foundation. For more information about the Composer Librettist Development Program, Resident Artists, works by CLDP alumni, and upcoming public events at ALT, please visit www.altnyc.org/ ABOUT AMERICAN LYRIC THEATER Great Operas Don't Just Happen. American Lyric Theater (ALT) was founded in 2005 by Lawrence Edelson to build a new body of operatic repertoire by nurturing composers and librettists, providing an incubator for their collaborations, and contributing new works to the national canon. Many opera companies commission and perform new works; but ALT is the only company in the United States that offers extensive, full-time mentorship for emerging operatic writers. While the traditional company model focuses on producing a season, ALT's focus is on serving the needs of composers and librettists, developing new works, and collaborating with larger producing companies to help usher those works into the repertoire. In 2012, ALT was the first company dedicated to artist mentorship rather than operatic production to be recognized by OPERA America as a Professional Company Member - a testament to ALT's service to the field. For more information about American Lyric Theater, please visit www.altnyc.org. American Lyric Theater's mentorship programs for composers and librettists and public programs in New York City are made possible by generous lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, Howard Gilman Foundation, The Kurt Weill Foundation, OPERA America Innovation Grants (with support from The Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation), Howard & Sarah D.

The real-life inspiration behind the hit television series The Partridge Family, The Cowsills -- were one of the biggest pop acts of the late '60s. Distinguished by their angelic harmonies and sun-kissed melodies. The group's origins lie with brothers Bill and Bob, who as children began their singing careers covering Everly Brothers hits. Given guitars by their father, Navy man William "Bud" Cowsill, the siblings soon recruited younger brothers Barry and John to play bass and drums, respectively, and as Beatlemania dawned, the teen foursome began performing live at school dances and church socials throughout their native Newport, RI. Eventually they landed a regular weekend gig at the local club, Dorians, on Bannisters Wharf, and in 1965, recorded the single "All I Really Wanta Be Is Me" on the Joda label; the record generated little response until an appearance on NBC's The Today Show. The group then signed with Mercury Records, releasing three more singles. Upon signing with MGM in 1967, The Cowsills with their lineup now numbering seven (brother Paul, sister Susan and mother Barbara joining the original four) had their first million-selling single, "The Rain, the Park and Other Things" (usually called the flower girl song) which was featured most recently in Jim Carrey's movie, "Dumb and Dumber". They performed on such notable TV shows as the Ed Sullivan Show, the Johnny Cash Show, the Tonight Show, Merv Griffin, Mike Douglas, and also had their own NBC television special in 1968. "Indian Lake" and "We Can Fly" followed in the summer and in 1969 they had their biggest hit, the multi-million selling title song from the musical "Hair." The Cowsills also recorded the theme song for the TV show "Love, American Style" which is still one of the most popular songs they perform in their shows. They were one of the early pop acts to record commercials for television (nationally shown milk ads for the American Dairy Association) and there is currently a serious movement to ensure their induction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Today, The Cowsills tour and perform together (although brother Barry died during the Katrina hurricane and brother Bill passed away at the same time from illnesses in Canada) and their harmonies are still as infectious and bright as ever.

A Dixon Place premiere you won't tell your parents about when you dress up and sneak out to see it late at night. Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's Masque of the Red Death, this ensemble-created piece explores power, privilege, and unrequited love.

Drawing from the worlds of vaudeville, clowning, drag, and cult horror, we aim to entertain, unsettle, disgust, and delight.

Were They Equal?--Tortoise, Elephant, & Hippopotamus Tell Us about Ourselves! - Aesthetic Realism Foundation November 18, 2017 - New York

This fun class is taught by Aesthetic Realism consultants Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy, whose anti-bullying events have been presented at community centers throughout the metropolitan area. At this event, they’ll be joined by anthropologist Dr. Arnold Perey, who will take up his illustrated anti-prejudice book Were They Equal? The class is for children aged 5-12, and will be from 11 am to 12:15 pm. The purpose of this class is to show young people what Aesthetic Realism, the education founded by the American poet and critic Eli Siegel, explains: the deepest desire of every person is to know and like the world. And the children will be learning, too, about what opposes that desire, as they talk about these sentences from Dr. Perey’s book, which is adapted from a traditional African tale: "I learned from Aesthetic Realism that every one of us, like Hippopotamus and Elephant, can think that we’re big stuff when we make less of other people. And this is the cause of prejudice between races, religions, and even between neighborhoods….So when Tortoise teaches Hippo and Elephant a lesson, we should learn from it too!" Children will have a good time learning that respecting and valuing other people, seeing their likeness to oneself, is what they most want! It is the greatest opposition to contempt, that lessening which is the cause of prejudice and bullying. And through what they learn, there will be new cause for pride and self-respect!

Big Dance Theater Conceived and choreographed by Annie-B Parson Directed by Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival The Obie Award-winning mavericks at Big Dance Theater (Alan Smithee Directed This Play: Triple Feature, 2014 Next Wave) take a dizzy intertextual romp through the diaries of Samuel Pepys, weaving music, dance, video, and text into a spectacularly outré portrait of the famed 17th-century philanderer and his tragic wife Bess. Soaked in reverb and dripping with lamé, the ensemble careens through a series of tightly crafted episodes, conjuring Pepys' penchant for self-improvement, steadfast commitment to infidelity, and endless desire to be en vogue. Splintering the diaries with the radical feminism of the 17th-century playwright Margaret Cavendish and the cult of online annotators at pepysdiary.com, 17c coaxes a century-spanning conversation from a notoriously solipsistic life. Sound by Tei Blow Set design by Joanne Howard Lighting design by Joe Levasseur Costume design by Oana Botez Video by Jeff Larson 17c is produced by Big Dance Theater and co-commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts/UNC Chapel Hill, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Philadelphia FringeArts, the Old Vic/London, The Yard (Chilmark, MA), Diane and Adam E.

John Cale:The Velvet Underground & Nico (Program B) - Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) November 18, 2017 - Brooklyn

Program B: John Cale's 75th Birthday Celebration Music by John Cale Wordless Music Orchestra and Chorus Presented in association with Wordless Music Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival The inveterate experimentalist who melded rock with the avant-garde, John Cale (Paris 1919 and A Tribute to Nico, 2012 Next Wave) has exerted an incalculable influence on the last half-century of popular music, from punk to noise to chamber pop. He returns to BAM for a three-night celebration of his life and art. For the first two nights, Cale is accompanied by members of the Wordless Music Orchestra and special guests to perform the album that charted the course of underground music for decades to come. Fifty years after its release, The Velvet Underground & Nico remains a raw, bracing transmission from the downtown demimonde of 1960s New York City, combining Lou Reed's streetwise lyrics, Nico's husky contralto, and Cale's Fluxus-inspired electric viola. In the final evening of this engagement, Cale celebrates 75 years, backed by the Wordless Music Orchestra and Chorus. They perform selections from his legendary, impossible-to-pin-down career, including his landmark work with the Velvet Underground, the baroque pop perfection of Paris 1919, pioneering forays into drone minimalism, and beyond.

Created by Thaddeus Phillips In collaboration with Steven Dufala Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival A late-night trip to the refrigerator for a glass of milk opens a door to another dimension in this theatrical epic inspired by pop-up books, Kabuki stagecraft, and parent-child relationships. Eschewing the shoulds and should-nots of adulthood for the anarchic laws of play, visionary director Thaddeus Phillips (17 Border Crossings, 2015 Next Wave) and Obie Award-winning installation artist Steven Dufala conjure a spectacular quest through space and time, guided by sleight-of-hand stagecraft, a cinematic score by Juan Gabriel Turbay, and the limitless possibilities of the imagination. When a treasured object goes missing, real-life father and son actors (Michael and Winslow Fegley) must rely on their own creativity, and each other, to survive a world of wild landscapes—and still make it back home.

The most terrible, unspeakable things happen, but if it is the right kind of melodrama, you think everything will come out right.” “Liking the Way We See” Reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson “Liking ourselves is equivalent to liking the way we see what is not ourselves….

Barbara Hannigan and Reinbert De Leeuw - Park Avenue Armory Through November 18, 2017 - Upper East Side

"Barbara Hannigan sings the songs of Erik Satie as if she's sitting next to you, whispering and cooing across the kitchen table with sufficient breathiness, soft edges and exquisite spaciousness to match Reinbert de Leeuw's sweet-melancholy piano chords." — The Guardian (UK) Barbara Hannigan has made a name for herself as a muse and collaborator with a number of legendary composers, creating roles on leading opera stages around the world by adding a kind of virtuosity that contemporary music has rarely seen before. The soprano comes to the Board of Officers Room to make her U.S. recital debut with programs that showcase her versatility and superb musicianship. She opens her residency with an artfully curated look at the Second Viennese School, where new musical language was developed through the extraordinary collaboration between composers, painters, writers, and other artists in the city's salons and cafes at the turn of the century. She then looks to Paris to explore the work of Erik Satie, from art songs written in his early career to his magnum opus Socrate, in a unique program performed with renowned Satie interpreter Reinbert de Leeuw.

DION FLYNN is best known as Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has over 60 appearances as 14 different characters on both The Tonight Show & Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Cited by Oprah aMagazine as "one of our favorite creative thinkers..." Dion's solo improv has been described as: "Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn's mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you're flying." — Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life "Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. "Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it's all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a couch and a piano. It's a magic show where you get to see the magician astounded by his own illusions. Dion is a natural improviser, a born-performer, and it certainly shows in this impressive weekly solo improv piece. In a world of so many 8-person improv teams and shows, it is refreshing to see someone take the risk of going at it alone--and it is a special treat that it happens to be Dion Flynn." - Chris Aurillio

Long active in underground circles, he's recently released a string of acclaimed records of widescreen guitar rock, and in 2013, he assembled The Solar Motel Band, who have quickly developed a reputation as an incredible live act, provoking ecstatic comparisons to visionary artists such as Television, the Grateful Dead, Popul Vuh, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Richard Thompson.

Rebetiki Istoria ("rebetika history") is a leading traditional group from Athens specializing in early-style rebetika, one of the oldest genres of Greek urban popular song. Often called "the Greek blues," the music expresses the hardship and joys of everyday life and deals with such subjects as unrequited love, economic hardship, and repatriation. At times rebetika was censored and its musicians ostracized; at other times, it was lauded as the greatest expression of Greek music and culture. For 35 years, Rebetiki Istoria has been instrumental in the rebetiko revival, producing authentic and compelling rebetika songs reminiscent of the earliest stars. Its extensive repertoire includes popular songs from Markos Vamvakaris, Vassilis Tsitsanis and Ioannis Papaioannou, little-known gems, and traditional improvisational amanes. The ensemble features bouzouki, baglama, guitar and voice and is led by its founder, the renowned Pavlos Vassiliou.

Albertz Benda is pleased to present Tsibi Geva: Jolt, one of Israel's most critically acclaimed artists, on view from October 12 – November 18, 2017. Having shown in New York with Annina Nosei for the past two decades, Tsibi Geva: Jolt will be the artist's first solo exhibition at Albertz Benda, featuring a new body of work and selected pieces from his solo presentation in the Israeli Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale. In his latest series of paintings, Geva addresses concepts such as migration, instability and disintegration from a sociopolitical perspective and within the medium of painting itself. The layers of paint on the canvas alternately reveal and obscure fragments of bodies, architectural structures, and natural elements. These layered compositions confront the physicality of the materials while reflecting personal and cultural discourses. Geva delves into his psyche through a process of spontaneous mark-making and expressive gesture in the spirit of- but not defined by- abstract expressionism while also channeling the atmosphere of his surroundings. In works such as Untitled, 2017, the rounded forms and flowing paint flirt with representation, evoking an aerial landscape, a shrouded, injured figure, a hole or a wound. As Geva explains, "there is a deep and mysterious relationship between a landscape and a cultural or political environment." Addressing many of the same questions as his abstract works, Geva's recent figurative work introduces an increasingly sensual aspect. Untitled 2016 depicts a figure curled into a fetal position, whose gender and expression is ambiguous. The subject is at once vulnerable yet possibly challenging the viewer; the pink swathes of paint throughout the composition can either be energizing or lurid. "An image may be charged with cultural or symbolic meaning and completely devoid of such meaning at the same time, and this dialectic is fundamental to my work," says Geva.

LPR Presents at Brooklyn Bazaar: George Clanton, Negative Gemini (ft. Teen Body) & ESPRIT - (Le) Poisson Rouge November 18, 2017 - New York

Following three years of releasing music as the seminal vaporwave producer ESPRIT ??, and vocal-driven pop artist Mirror Kisses, George Clanton has dropped the alter egos. Clanton's latest work is built upon the foundation laid by those projects, but further pushes the sound of modern internet-bred genres by adding timeless pop hooks and structure. In the past year Clanton has gone on to launch his own all-vinyl record label, 100% Electronica - a platform from which George released his debut album of the same title. The album 100% Electronica is George's attempt to combine the Mirror Kisses and ESPRIT ?? projects into one sound. Following the release of 100% Electronica, the new project enjoyed a sharp rise in popularity thanks to endorsements from Gorilla Vs Bear , FACT Mag , SPIN , and others. In 2016 George shared the stage with Charlie XCX , Sophie , and Teklife for the Gorilla Vs Bear SXSW Showcase at Hype Hotel; a performance Yahoo Music highlighted, calling George Clanton specifically " the best thing we saw at SXSW all week." Since then George's following has grown steadily as he continues to release some of Bandcamp's best-selling vinyl records (Negative Gemini – Body Work, SURFING – Deep Fantasy, ESPRIT??– virtua.zip, and more) through his own 100% Electronica label. To date, each individual release has reached #1 on Bandcamp's "best-selling" charts not just for vinyl but all music as well. This year will see the release of George Clanton's follow up album, and countrywide touring as he takes his renowned show on the road outside of the Northeast. About Negative Gemini: "Negative Gemini, makes a genre-spanning blend of '90s techno and heady modern electronica: a little Chicago, a little Detroit, and a whole lot of Brooklyn. But unlike many of her contemporaries, French conveys her personality and experiences through vocals and lyrics, not just tight production" - NYLON About ESPIRIT: ESPRIT began in 2012 as the sample-based side-project of electronic pop artist George Clanton. ESPRIT's first two EP's "Girls Only" and "Summer Night" are still considered essential listening for any newcomers to the vaporwave genre. In 2014, when vaporwave was still defined by its use of found music and manipulated samples, ESPRIT released his "Virtua.zip" LP composed entirely of original material. In the 3 years since its release, the vaporwave scene at large has followed this trend. After "Virtua.zip," the ESPRIT series was put on hold while George Clanton's eponymous project's "100% Electronica" LP released in late 2015. Now 3 years later, ESPRIT returns with both the successor to "Virtua.zip" and the sister album to '100% Electronica' together in one piece. "200% Electronica" combines fully original compositions in ESPRIT's classic vaporwave style with chopped & screwed samples pulled from George Clanton's own songs, inspired by two years of touring with nothing but a Roland SP 404-SX.

Souvenirs: New New York Icons - Storefront for Art and Architecture Through November 18, 2017 - New York

As a contemporary form of commercialized nostalgia, souvenirs are the ultimate cliche in the representation of a city.

Souvenirs: New New York Icons, the second iteration of Storefront's model show, commissions 59+ objects that redefine New York's iconic imagery. Inspired by each of the city's Community Districts, more than 59 artists, architects, and designers have reimagined the referential images that constitute the global perception of the city, proposing new understandings of the urban experience.

Morgan Bassichis: The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions The Musical - New Events Hello Museum November 18, 2017 - New York

Morgan Bassichis adapts the underground classic The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions (1977)—an out-of-print book by Larry Mitchell, with lush illustrations by Ned Asta, that recounts a fable of radical queerness and the challenges and possibilities of communal life—in a series of three "new moon potluck theater" evenings. Bassichis's style incorporates stand-up comedy and call-and-response as well as, more recently, songs, lullabies, and chants. The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions The Musical will unfold over the course of "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon" as an incantation grappling with histories of queer and feminist world-making. The luminary cast includes TM Davy, DonChristian Jones, Michi Osato, Una Osato, and special guests, with set design by Anna Betbeze. In Bassichis's own words, "It's like dinner theater but spiritual and can you bring some of the food? Seriously." If you would like to contribute food to the potluck, please arrive by 6:45 p.m. Morgan Bassichis (b. 1983) is a comedic performer whose shows have been described as "out there" (by Morgan's mother) and "super intense" (by Morgan). Bassichis's work has been featured at Artists Space (2017), MoMA P.S.1 as part of Greater New York (2015), Poetry Project (2015), and multiple Bar Mitzvahs. Bassichis is the 2017 Analog resident with Recess, and is currently (hardly!) working on an album of experimental protest songs. Bassichis's essays on queer politics have appeared in the Radical History Review, Captive Genders, and other edited volumes.

Performing Truths: Coco Fusco in conversation with Noah Fischer - Pioneer Works November 18, 2017 - Brooklyn

Join us at the closing event of Fact Craft for a conversation between artist Coco Fusco and activist Noah Fischer. Fusco and Fischer will discuss the strategies used by activist groups Occupy Museums and GULF/Gulf Labor to consider the ways that art institutions are complicit in systems of power that exploit workers and privilege global economic elites. Their dialogue will address performances and protests created for the Whitney Biennial, Guggenheim, and MoMA. A reception and open house will follow the conversation featuring projects and actions developed during Fact Craft workshops and programs. To learn about the programs and resources developed from this series, visit Fact Craft and our online resource journal.

Two Headed Rep will present the World Premiere of Emma Horwitz’s Reno & Moll, directed by Lily Riopelle (this movie, Samuel French OOB Short Play Festival winner) in rep with a new adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie, written by Brittany Allen (Too Many Lenas 3: Let Them Eat Cake at Ars Nova’s ANTFEST and New Ohio’s Ice Factory Festival), Will Arbery (We Were Nothing! with director Lisa Szolovits), and Amanda Keating (RETREAT at EST/Youngblood), directed by Molly Clifford (The Elephant in the Room at FringeNYC) at The Workshop Theater’s Jewel Box Theater (312 West 36th Street, 4th Floor), November 4-18 with performances Wednesday through Friday at 7:30pm, Saturday at 2pm & 7:30pm, Sunday at 2pm, and Monday at 7:30pm. Tickets ($18 each or $23 for both shows) are available in advance at www.twoheadedrep.com. Runtime for the full evening is 2 hours and 45 minutes, including intermission. Each play runs 75 minutes. This fall, Two Headed Rep’s pairing of plays find themselves in the workplace, inhabited by people who, every day, confront, consider, and carry out what’s expected of them. What weighs on us when we’re expected to do everything? What about when nothing is expected of us? And what do we do about the dog? Two Headed Rep asks these questions and more with their fall rep: a new adaptation of Miss Julie by Brittany Allen, Will Arbery, and Amanda Keating, and Reno & Moll, a new play written in response to Strindberg's classic by Emma Horwitz. The design team for both plays will feature Set Design by Cate McCrea (The Subtle Body at 59E59), Costume Design by Nicole Slaven (The Glowing Boot with United Solo Festival), Lighting Design by Cheyenne Sykes (Assistant on Ironbound with Rattlestick/WP Theater), and Sound Design by John Salutz (Mope at EST; Bareback Ink with Hard Sparks). In Reno & Moll, Harper has played the most beloved dog on children's TV for ten years. She knows her lines and she knows her choreography, she just doesn't know why she's still doing this job. Is it for the fans who adore her? Do they adore her or just her canine alter ego? And what’s the difference anyway? When Harper's longtime co-star leaves the show, she wonders whether it might be time to make a change as well. But how do you change when you've played the same character for so long that you can't remember what it's like to be yourself? The cast will include Alton Alburo* (The Wong Kids in the Secret of the Space Chupacabra Go! with Ma-Yi; Friends From College on Netflix), Zoë Geltman (The World My Mama Raised with Clubbed Thumb; Bear Slayer! at Ars Nova), and Eva Victor (Story Pirates). To bring Miss Julie into the 21st century, Two Headed Rep has commissioned three writers to explore and adapt one character each from Strindberg's classic to form a new, singular work. This process mirrors the play itself: when three people, each practically on different planets, find themselves crowded in a single room, they insistently prod, occasionally torment, and, most importantly, desperately need each other. It’s Halloween night in the break room of Count’s Chicken, a fast food franchise in Corsicana, Texas. What Julie, Gene, and Krissy expect of themselves and each other drives them to questions they thought they’d never ask and choices they never thought they’d make. The cast will feature Sarah Jes Austell (The Cherry Orchard at Robert Moss Theater), Fernando Gonzalez* (Charleses with The Tank/The Brick; Omega Kids at Access Theater), and Rachel Sachnoff (this movie at the Sam French OOB Festival; Let’s Make a Li’l Human with Mabou Mines). *Actors appears courtesy of the Actors’ Equity Association TWO HEADED REP produces new plays in repertory with the classic plays that inspire them. By creating a space in which old and the new exist side by side, we provide our audience with a living, breathing artistic and cultural context for the works we present. We embrace the repertory format as a means to enrich the audience experience of the old and the new, and foster an enhanced understanding of the relevance and necessity of each. Previous reps have included Electra with Amanda Keating’s RETREAT, TARTUFFE with Lizzie Stern’s Don’t Make Yourself Crazy, and Lysistrata with Jacob Perkins’ Restaurant in D Major. www.twoheadedrep.com

Dixon Place presents the world premiere of "MLCG (MY LITTLE CHINA GIRL)", a new production by acclaimed downtown theater artist Soomi Kim, with direction by Leta Tremblay. "MLCG (MY LITTLE CHINA GIRL)" is playing a limited engagement of six performances only, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, November 3 through November 18 at Dixon Place (161A Chrystie Street). When David Bowie died, performing artist and choreographer Soomi Kim was suddenly reminded of her own coming of age as a Korean-American in the MTV generation, and her adolescent desire to be the exotic Asian woman in Bowie’s “China Girl” video. "MLCG (MY LITTLE CHINA GIRL)" is a high-octane solo performance that deals with Ms. Kim’s experiences as a first generation Korean-American, tackling themes of Western standards of beauty, the deep and physical pain of loss, and yearning for approval - from her father, from society, and from the white male icon on her TV screen. Tickets are $21 in advance and $24 at the door. For tickets and further information, please visit http://dixonplace.org/performances/mlcg-my-little-china-girl/ or call (866)-811-4111.

Peng Tian is a villager from Mao's home province of Hunan who walks into the Beijing Film Academy one day in full Mao dress to study film acting. Chen Yan is a housewife from Sichuan province, whose mother realized she looked like Mao twenty years earlier, but it isn't until the twenty-first century that Chen gives the role a try.

"A bewitching masterpiece." - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times "See Belladonna now or be damned to perdition!" - Robert Brenner, The Huffington Post "Belladonna of Sadness is a major re-discovery." - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, A.V. Club One of the great lost masterpieces of Japanese animation, never before officially released in the U.S., BELLADONNA OF SADNESS is a mad, swirling, psychedelic light-show of medieval tarot-card imagery with horned demons, haunted forests and La Belle Dame Sans Merci, equal parts J.R.R. Tolkien and gorgeous, explicit Gustav Klimt-influenced eroticism. The last film in the adult-themed Animerama trilogy produced by the godfather of Japanese anime & manga, Osamu Tezuka and directed by his long time collaborator Eiichi Yamamoto ("ASTRO BOY" and "KIMBA THE WHITE LION"), BELLADONNA unfolds as a series of spectacular still watercolor paintings that bleed and twist together. An innocent young woman, Jeanne (voiced by Aiko Nagayama) is violently raped by the local lord on her wedding night. To take revenge, she makes a pact with the Devil himself (voiced by Tatsuya Nakadai, from Akira Kurosawa's RAN) who appears as an erotic sprite and transforms her into a black-robed vision of madness and desire. Extremely transgressive and not for the easily offended, BELLADONNA is fueled by a mindblowing Japanese psych rock soundtrack by noted avant-garde jazz composer Masahiko Satoh. The film has been newly restored by Cinelicious Pics using the original 35mm camera negative and sound elements - and including over 8 minutes of surreal and explicit footage cut from the negative. On par with Rene Laloux's FANTASTIC PLANET and Ralph Bakshi's WIZARDS as an LSD-stoked 1970s head trip, BELLADONNA marks a major rediscovery for animation fans. If Led Zeppelin had a favorite film, this would be it. In other words, Stairway to Hell. Dir. Eiichi Yamamoto. 86 min. Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.

Presented by Brooklyn Brewery "Tonight, we will be partaking of a liquid repast as we wind our way up the Golden Mile. Commencing with an inaugural tankard in The First Post, then on to The Old Familiar, The Famous Cock, The Cross Hands, The Good Companions, The Trusty Servant, The Two-Headed Dog, The Mermaid, The Beehive, The King's Head, and The Hole in the Wall for a measure of the same, all before the last bittersweet pint in that most fateful terminus, The World's End. Leave a light on good lady, for though we may return with a twinkle in our eyes, we will be in truth blind - drunk!" - Gary King, The World's End Gary King (Simon Pegg) is an immature 40-year-old who's dying to take another stab at an epic pub-crawl that he last attempted 20 years earlier. He drags his reluctant buddies back to their hometown and sets out for a night of heavy drinking. As they make their way toward their ultimate destination -- the fabled World's End pub -- Gary and his friends attempt to reconcile the past and present. However, the real struggle is for the future when their journey turns into a battle for mankind. With the assistance of BROOKLYN BREWERY, we will be accompanying Gary, Andy, and all the rest on their "liquid repast." Of course, in the interest of not killing you, rather than asking you to drink twelve pints in two hours or match the characters drink-for-drink, we'll be offering a more modest but also far more decadent experience: beer tasting! Your ticket will include a tasting of 12 Brooklyn Brewery beers, each to be served along with each pub the gang visits, ensuring you a good time but also leaving you sober enough to fight off any robots that might try to infiltrate the bar. Let's boo-boo! Dir. Edgar Wright. 2013. 109 min.

Gillian Walsh is an artist and performer based in New York.

Her new work, Moon Fate Sin, was conceived as "A cosmological dance demonology, A Liturgical Dance for St. Mark's Church," and is built in collaboration with performers Maggie Cloud, Justin Hyacinth, Emily Hoffman, and Mickey Mahar. Collectively they explore the terrain of the unconscious and the death drive. Costumes by earth_trauma Lighting by Carol Mullins Sound by Wally Blanchard

Welcome to Introvert Happy Hour. Silent Book Club started in 2012 with a couple of friends reading in companionable silence at our neighborhood bar. We loved books, and reading with friends, but most of our previous attempts at book clubs had fizzled out. Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework? We started Silent Book Club because reading with friends is awesome. We love hearing about what people are reading (often in their other book clubs) and we think it's important to put down our phones and be social. Real, live, breathing-the-same-air social, not hearting-you-on-Instagram social. We also believe there's no shame in drinking alone, especially when you have a good book for company. In fact, most of the time we'd rather be left alone with our book, thank you very much creepy guy asking what we're reading. And, added bonus for the parents out there: your kids can't follow you into the bar. If only you had a bouncer for your bathroom. But you don't need alcohol to read with friends. Silent Book Club is about community. Everyone is welcome, and anyone can do it. We encourage people all over the world to start their own Silent Book Clubs. Bring a book, bring a friend. Then read, wine, repeat.

"These aren't necessarily the songs I wanted to write, but they were the ones I had to write," Jenny O. says of the material that became Peace & Information, her sophomore record and the second she's collaborated on with producer Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Conor Oberst, Dawes). "I had a difficult year or two, so I wrote my way out of it." This difficult chapter included challenging romantic relationships, a move from L.A. to Nashville, depression, trauma, a resulting case of PTSD, and a lot of inward work, not necessarily in that order. These experiences resulted in a group of songs that take the listener on a journey that culminates in insights about increased intuition, the pursuit of self-actualization, and taking back one's personal power. Jenny began making simple recordings on her father's reel-to-reel tape machine as a teenager and kick started her career with the self-produced and heartily licensed Home EP. In 2015, Jenny O. was awarded The Holly Prize by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, as "an exceptionally talented and inspired young musician whose work exhibits the qualities of Holly's music: true, great, and original." After O.'s first full length Automechanic was released in Feburary of 2013 she found herself on the road for two years in support of acts like Father John Misty, Leon Russell, and Rodriguez. She confesses, "I'm into music but I'm not an extrovert. I'm really sensitive and each tour presents new dynamics to surf through. When you're in a bad place spiritually but obligated to perform, the shows feel like fraud. I wanted it to stop until I could get my shit together." The end of the album cycle prompted a move to Nashville for a while. "I felt like riding a bicycle in a little mellow town —being transient, elsewhere," she explained.

Cousins Dave Schafer and Pete Vale bore the idea of forming a rock band late in 2011 as a therapeutic release from the pressurized day to day of New York City living. Adding on bass guitarist Andrew Wilkes, drummer Ben Selznick, and keyboard player James Gettinger, the band was complete in early 2012. For about a year, they would get together informally, sing, talk, and enjoy the company of each others' talents, focused initially only on their favorite rock covers and whatever other melodies happened to pass before their minds. But the energy in the room soon developed into something more, and they began to write songs together: ones they liked so much that they felt compelled to share. In January of 2013 they played their first live show in the basement of a small club in Manhattan. From there, things took off quickly as crowds progressively got bigger and bigger. Denizen soon became a staple on the Lower East Side music scene, quickly moving from mid-sized venues like Arlene's Grocery and Pianos to professional concert halls like Webster Hall. But the rise was not without setbacks. The lineup had to be changed with the departure of Ben and James, and for a good while, it wasn't clear that the band would survive. Fortunately, they had already begun playing with drummer Ross Procaccio, who joined as a full member in 2015. With the addition of Dylan Defeo on keyboards in 2016, the current lineup was solidified and the band was back as never before. Two EPs later, Denizen is drawing crowds in the hundreds at venues up and down the East Coast like Brooklyn Bowl, Ardmore Music Hall, The Fillmore and World Café Live. They released their third EP in the winter of 2017.

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

Morgan Bassichis: The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions The Musical, Pt. II - New Museum Through November 18, 2017 - Lower East Side

Morgan Bassichis adapts the underground classic The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions (1977)—an out-of-print book by Larry Mitchell, with lush illustrations by Ned Asta, that recounts a fable of radical queerness and the challenges and possibilities of communal life—in a series of three "new moon potluck theater" evenings. Bassichis's style incorporates stand-up comedy and call-and-response as well as, more recently, songs, lullabies, and chants. The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions The Musical will unfold over the course of "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon" as an incantation grappling with histories of queer and feminist world-making.

Dawson City: Frozen Time. 2016. Directed by Bill Morrison - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art November 18, 2017 - New York

Dawson City: Frozen Time. 2016. USA. Directed by Bill Morrison. 35mm. 120 min. The confluence of a gold rush in the Yukon and the birth of cinema in the waning days of the 19th century form the basis for this masterful, revelatory film, which uses film footage that was long feared lost to tell these interconnecting stories. When Dawson City swelled to more than 40,000 inhabitants in a matter of a few months following the initial gold strike, along came hotels, gambling halls, and saloons, as well as a movie theater. Because Dawson City was at the end of the film distribution chain, distributors instructed their Yukon clients to dispose of the film reels rather than returning them. Eventually, the films were buried in an unused swimming pool and covered over. In 1978, when a construction project required the demolition of the pool, a treasury of films from the 1910s through the 1920s was found, remarkably preserved in the subterranean permafrost. With a keen eye toward storytelling and the preservation of history, filmmaker Bill Morrison weaves an intricate feature from the salvaged frames. Featuring an original score by Alex Somers, Dawson City: Frozen Time is both the fortuitous story of an unprecedented economic boom and the melancholy account of the tragic exile of the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in people of the Yukon.

Manos: The Hands of Fate. 1966. Directed by Harold P. Warren - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art November 18, 2017 - New York

Manos: The Hands of Fate. 1966. USA. Directed by Harold P. Warren. DCP. 70 min. "This may indeed be one of the most inept films ever made. But it points toward some other disturbing horror films that became classics of the genre: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House on the Left, and all of their many derivations. In Manos, a family is tormented by a heathen group of bizarre characters. The exposing of the Manson 'family' came three years later. Many of the Club 57 members were impressionable teens when the Manson murders took place. Ten years after, at the basement club in the East Village, mocking a questionably tasteless film about 'family vs. family' could have been a way of purging the fears. From DVDDrive-In.com: 'Performances, camerawork, lighting, and editing are awful at best, but what most viewers might finally be able to appreciate about this film is its eerie otherworldly quality. It does succeed in disorienting the viewer…reminiscent of the later Texas Chainsaw Massacre.'" (film notes by John Epperson).

Directed by Norman McLaren and Claude Jutra. 10 min. This wordless black-and-white film dramatizes an amusing encounter between a man and a chair. One of the great classics for children, this film is notable for its simple story and music by Ravi Shankar. A Small Escape. 2016. Sweden. Directed by David Sandell. 3 min. A pair of scissors escapes from a kitchen, then connects with other everyday objects to transform into a bird and flies away. The Music Box. 2010. USA.

Trio Solisti at Adelphi University on November 18 at 8:00 p.m. - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center November 18, 2017 - Garden City

Trio Solisti, Adelphi’s ensemble-in-residence, returns to the Performing Arts Center (PAC) with another exhilarating performance. Trio Solisti will perform their fall concert on Saturday, November 18 at 8:00 p.m. on the Westermann Stage, Concert Hall in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. Trio Solisti has forged a reputation as “the most exciting piano trio in America” (The New Yorker), with a passionate performance style that combines exceptional virtuosity and musical insight. Possessing a repertoire that encompasses the standard repertoire and works by contemporary composers, rave reviews follow the trio throughout its concert tours. Noted Wall Street Journal critic Terry Teachout proclaimed that Trio Solisti is “the group that to my mind has now succeeded the Beaux Arts Trio as the outstanding chamber music ensemble of its kind.” The New York Times called it “probably the finest American [piano trio] currently on the field,” and the trio was praised by The Washington Post for a “transcendent performance.” Founded in 2001, Trio Solisti – violinist Maria Bachmann, cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach, and pianist Fabio Bidini – has performed on major concert series such as the Great Performers at Lincoln Center, People’s Symphony Concerts at Town Hall NY, Washington Performing Arts Society at Kennedy Center, Seattle’s Meany Hall and La Jolla’s Revelle Series. In 2015, the ensemble performed a three-concert series at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, presenting the complete piano chamber music of Johannes Brahms, with guest artists Anthony McGill (clarinet), Jesse Mills (violin), Richard O’Neill and Hsin-Yun Huang (viola), and Julie Landsman (French horn). The Adelphi PAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. Tickets are currently on sale for $35 with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni. Information is available at the Lucia and Steven N. Fischer Box Office at 516.877.4000 or [email protected] Regular box office hours are Tuesday through Friday from 1:00-6:00 p.m. The box office is also open two hours before most scheduled performances.

Described by its creator as "an ecstatic work of negativity," ROBYN HITCHCOCK instantly stands among the most energized and ambitious recordings of the iconic troubadour's long career. Hitchcock's 21st studio recording and first-ever eponymous release, the album sees him casting familiar shapes into surprising new forms, the sci-fi fueled sounds and visions that first stimulated his work now ribboned with experience and hard-earned wisdom. Spanning dystopic psychedelia ("Mad Shelley's Letterbox," "Time Coast"), inspired folk baroque ("Raymond and the Wires," "1970 In Aspic"), even rambunctious liver-fried country ("I Pray When I'm Drunk"), ROBYN HITCHCOCK marks both a masterful new chapter and ideal entry point into Hitchcock's wildly brilliant oeuvre. "It's 'Introducing Robyn Hitchcock,'" he says. "Think of me as a new act – I'm only 63. People always ask me, where should I start listening to your records? I'm a train with many carriages. I thought, I'll just make this record and if people like this one, then they'll probably like the others. If they don't, it's not worth them listening to any of them, really. "

Family fun for children of all ages. Featuring a variety of boutiques, a Gourmet Food Hall (baked goods and prepared foods to take home), and great fun for the kids in Santaland (games and crafts). Photos with Santa Claus ($10 for a print and digital file).

Artist Brian Batt debuts his latest works – all part of his new "GREENHOUSE" series—at a pop-up at Foley Gallery (59 Orchard St) on New York’s Lower East Side. Open from November 8 through November 19, the exhibition features 21 original works —paintings and drawings— created by Batt over the last two years. Also on view: "Women & Flowers" is a series by New York-based photographer, Christina Arza. Batt’s style, comparable to that of Chuck Close, invites the viewer to ingest life through a kaleidoscope of color, depth, and shocking precision. Until recent months, Batt has mainly focused his molecular creativity on world famous icons, such as Questlove and Pete Townshend, or city landmarks, such as Katz’s Deli. Now, with "GREENHOUSE," Batt offers an escape from bright lights and urban sprawl to the lush beauty, inspired by quiet moments in his Brooklyn rooftop garden. A perfect foil for "GREENHOUSE," Christina Arza’s "Women & Flowers" draws inspiration from classical painting and photography portraiture. The images were shot on medium format and each capture women with a flower of their choice in an intimate environment.

Before My Fair Lady and Camelot there was Brigadoon, Lerner & Loewe's transcendent romantic fantasy about the past, the present, and what it means to (almost) be in love. The classic 1947 musical follows Tommy Albright (Steven Pasquale), a jaded New Yorker who stumbles into an idyllic Scottish town that only appears for one day every century. Tommy quickly becomes smitten with the headstrong Fiona MacLaren (Kelli O'Hara) and makes an enemy of the rebellious Harry Beaton (Robert Fairchild), bringing about a chain of events that could spell doom for the entire town. City Center is delighted to bring Brigadoon out of the Highland mists for its 70th anniversary, in a concert production directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon. The November 15 performance of Brigadoon will be City Center's annual Gala, honoring City Center Board co-chair and Broadway producer Stacey Mindich. The Gala performance will be followed by dinner at The Plaza. For tables and ticket details, patrons should call 212.763.1205 or see the "Nov 15 Gala" tab above. Funds raised at all six performances of Brigadoon will allow City Center to make the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audience by subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year.

Radial Poetic Imagination / 5-week poetry workshop with Janet Hamill This workshop will meet the following Sundays: October 22, October 29, November 5, November 12, November 19 TIME/LOCATION: 12 PM – 2 PM at Bowery Poetry located at 308 Bowery INSTRUCTOR: Janet Hamill This workshop explores the picture-making and inventive aspects of the imagination as manifested in the work of some of the most original poets of the past two hundred years: Blake, Coleridge, Poe, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Mallarme, Apollinaire, Reverdy, Tzara, Breton, Lamantia, Ginsberg, Guest, and Ashbery. Each poet will be examined against the backdrop of his/her historical period and the visual art of that period. Each session will involve a generative exercise. Janet Hamill's first book of poetry was published in 1975. Troublante (Oliphant Press), was followed by The Temple (Telephone Books), Nostalgia of the Infinite (Ocean View Books), Lost Ceilings (Telephone Books), Body of Water (Bowery Books), Tales from the Eternal Cafe (Three Rooms), and Knock (Spuyten Duyvil). Her work has been nominated for the Poetry Society of America's William Carlos Williams Prize and the Pushcart Prize. Tales from the Eternal Cafe, her first collection of fiction, was named "One of the Best Books of 2014" by Publisher's Weekly. Janet has also released two CD's of spoken word and music. Janet's paintings have been exhibited at the JP Art Market in Jamaica Plain, MA and galleries throughout New York's Hudson Valley, where she now resides.

Bassist Stanley Clarke was barely out of his teens when he exploded into the jazz world in 1971. Fresh out of the Philadelphia Academy of Music, he arrived in New York City and immediately landed jobs with famous bandleaders such as Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Pharaoh Saunders, Gil Evans, Stan Getz and a budding young pianist-composer named Chick Corea. All of these musicians immediately recognized Clarke's ferocious dexterity and complete musicality on the acoustic bass. Not only was he an expert at crafting bass lines and functioning as a timekeeper – in keeping with his instrument's traditional role – but the young prodigy also possessed a sense of lyricism and melody distilled from his bass heroes Charles Mingus, Scott LaFaro and others, as well as non-bass players like John Coltrane. Clarke envisioned the bass as a viable, melodic solo instrument positioned at the front of the stage rather than in a background role, and he was uniquely qualified to take it there. The vision became a reality when Clarke and Corea formed the seminal electric jazz/fusion band Return To Forever. RTF was a showcase for each of the quartet's strong musical personalities, composing prowess and instrumental voices. "We really didn't realize how much of an impact we were having on people at the time," Clarke recalls. "We were touring so much then; we would just make a record and then go back on the road." The band recorded eight albums, two of which were certified gold (Return To Forever and the classic Romantic Warrior). They also won a GRAMMY (No Mystery) and received numerous nominations while touring incessantly.

In Marcel, which they co-created, they play an aging physical comedian and an inscrutable, clipboard-wielding nemesis mysteriously enjoined to test him with a battery of absurd tasks. Slapstick meets the limits of age and "all ages laugh and recognize their own absurdity in the comic antics." – The Guardian A comedy about comedy, part performance and masterclass, about what makes audiences laugh. Performing in English, Jos Houben, dissects everyday life – a baby's first steps, a man falling in a restaurant, the essence of various cheeses – revealing why laughter is at the core of our humanity. The Guardian calls it a show about "how a body can make people laugh."

Hudson Valley artist Robert Hite grew up in Virginia but has traveled the world. Hite is interested in exploring issues of local knowledge, memory, transience, environment, disenfranchisement and domicile as living art through sculpture, painting and photography. Much of his photographic work juxtaposes the artificial and the natural and play with architectural scale. Hite’s cottages and cabins, many on stilts, have a lopsided, somewhat ramshackle air to them, as if nature is slowly reclaiming the buildings. Hite has shown his work widely, including a solo show at The Nassau County Museum of Art, the Hancock Shaker Village and the Berkshire Museum. Hite was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2014. The exhibit is on view October 8 through November 19, 2017.

Rockland Center for the Arts is having an exhibition of self-contained units of accommodations through a diverse collection of materials and mediums. The prefabricated house has been, and continues to be, not only a reflection on the house as a replicable object of design but also as a critical agent in the discourse of sustainability, and architectural invention, it is a source of societal class and social structure, family communication, or the deterioration of our very core of existence. Three separate exhibitions based on this subject include a solo exhibit, “A Distant Embrace”, works by Robert Hite. “Dwellings” with artists Eric Cremers, Jennie Chien, Lynn Cornelius, Susan Cox, Kevin Frances, Hao Ni, and Charlotte Schulz. “Home” is a smaller group show of selected artists.

Her rich, fascinating story is told through dialogue and song, under the musical direction of José Reinoso.

How has the act of remembering—and forgetting—been transformed in the digital age? Photography's relationship with the concept of memory stretches its entire history and includes its every iteration. Only now has the distribution of photography exploded with newfound ubiquity, ushering in a paradigm shift that bears semblance to that of the Gutenberg press. Photography's various forms have converged onto a point of accessibility where what was once a luxury is now a presupposition. As the degrees of separation between people decrease, so do those between past, present, and future. To remember is to engage with all three, and to create is to make them tangible. The collective consciousness of humankind speaks a visual language, and photography is poised, now more than ever, to upend the very notion of what it means to create.

See the new Our Senses: An Immersive Experience before it opens to the public! A weekend of exclusive Member Preview Days begins on Friday, November 17, for Members at the $115 level and above.

But as it turns out, "reality" isn't ever exactly what it seems to be. The new highly experiential exhibition Our Senses: An Immersive Experience delves into how our brains work with sensory organs to shape and reframe our perceptions of everyday encounters. And it reveals how, until recently in our evolutionary history, humans have been oblivious to nature's other crucial signals, including UV light and electrical fields.

Meet our family of otters – our very own swimming superstars! Watch the otters playing, foraging, feeding, swimming and grooming. You'll even be able to watch them sleeping in their specially designed holt, although this species of otter is more active during the day than some of the 13 other species found worldwide. Asian short-clawed otters are the smallest otters in the world and live well together in family groups, unlike most other otters which tend to be solitary. They often play games which helps their young to develop hunting skills. Otters are a good indication of clean water and healthy wetland habitats. As they are usually at the top of the food chain, if there are problems with wetlands the otter population declines. The UK's native European otter is a conservation success story. Fifty years ago the rivers of the UK suffered from pollution by organo-chlorine pesticides and as a result otters had disappeared from almost all of the country.

"In love you either sink or swim..." To continue our season's “The Empathy Initiative”, The Seeing Place presents Bob Glaudini’s touching and warmhearted play JACK GOES BOATING. Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons, and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit.  Written by Bob Glaudini, this revival marks the 10th Anniversary of the play’s premiere, originally produced/directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman at LAByrinth Theater. In Jack Goes Boating, Jack is a shy and awkward man who drives a limo and lives an unassuming life. His friend and co-worker, Clyde, and his wife Lucy, feel sorry for Jack and set him up on a blind date with Connie. Connie shares Jack's shyness and awkwardness, but through each other they seem to be able to find solace within themselves. Trouble might be brewing in paradise though, as Clyde and Lucy’s marriage stumbles just as Jack and Connie’s relationship grows. When the play premiered it received lavish praise, including Variety (“Witty and knowing and all heart”) and the NY Times (“An immensely likable play [that] exudes a wry compassion.” This play continues The Seeing Place’s “Empathy Initiative,” a year-long commitment to addressing oppression through the power of theater. With an emphasis on the organic, edgy American style of acting developed by the Group Theatre, TSP allows audiences to experience modern classics with deeper understanding of how they relate to the struggles we face today. With that, tickets are as low as $15 as a part of TSP’s Affordable Theater Initiative, making theater accessible for all.

In the hot Donegal August of 1878, the fruits of Colonialism and the ambiguities of loyalty are tested within the background of impossible love. Christopher Gore, the liberal minded Anglo-Irish landlord and his son, David, reside at The Lodge with their "chatelaine" Margaret, with whom they are both in love. Christopher's cousin, Dr. Richard Gore, arrives with the intention of pursuing a Darwin-inspired scientific theory: by measuring the craniums of the indigenous Irish, he hopes to crack the genetic code of the indigenes…demonstrating their inferior place in the natural order. Set in the era of the rumblings of violence and uncertainty at the dawn of The Home Rule movement, Brian Friel explores the aftermath of Dr. Gore's experiment as deep animosity is dangerously ignited amongst the suspicious villagers of Ballybeg.

Restoring the George and Beyond: Sgr Meets Public Benefit - AIA New York | Center for Architecture Through November 21, 2017 - New York

The George Washington Bridge, opened in 1931, has begun a $1.9-billion state-of-good-repair (SGR) program to rehabilitate the facility, scheduled to be completed in 2025. One of the principal components of this rehabilitation includes the replacement of the suspender ropes that support the bridge decks from the main cables. As a result of this program, new access paths to the bridge's main pedestrian walkways will be constructed. The challenge to respond to the SGR requirements created an opportunity to create substantial improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists who use the bridge for both passage and as a destination in its own right, as well as for the neighborhoods that interface with the access points. The presentation will illustrate how the conservation of transportation infrastructure can serve not just to maintain facilities, but to actually improve them.

I'm young, scrappy and hungry and I'm not throwing away my shot!" — Alexander Hamilton, The Musical HAMILTON is a cast of revolutionaries. Night after night, this band of young rebels raise their voices to the darkness in an inspiring uprising of song and spirit. They are at once our history and our future, inciting rebellion and leading the way to change. Like the revolutionaries who embraced Alexander Hamilton's vision for a new America, the remarkable actors in these photographs embraced Lin-Manuel Miranda's vision for a new American musical. In doing so, they upended expectations and made us see things differently. I captured their portraits using antique cameras and lenses. To bring a richness and timeless beauty to these images, I chose to print them in classic silver gelatin, still the gold standard for black and white printing. All in an effort to echo, in a small way, what 'Hamilton the Musical' so brilliantly achieves in enlivening our own history in a way that makes it so relevant and present for us today. This is a time when history is being made in ways that our forefathers could never have imagined. It celebrates and reverberates this history eight times a week in cities across America. This is MY SHOT.

Truant: Photographs, 1970 - 1979 Throughout the 1970s, filmmaker Barbara Hammer toured the United States, Africa, and Europe, making film after film about women and the lesbian experience, niether of which had seldom been seen by a woman, for women on screen before. She made a slew of now-legendary experimental films, including Sisters! (1973), Dyketactics (1974), Multiple Orgasm (1976), Sappho (1978), and Double Strength (1978), more or less inventing lesbian cinema at a time when such material had largely been relegated to the pornographic imagination of male artists and filmmakers. During this prolific period, Hammer photographed her travels, her lovers, moments of community and kinship between her collaborators on set, private and public performances, friends, strangers. In these photographs, most of which have never been exhibited before, Hammer's work explodes traditional notions of female sexuality by showing it for what it is: complex, messy, abstract, human. As a filmmaker, Hammer fused the non-linearity of Gertrude Stein and the poetic realism of Djuna Barnes to the early to mid-century American filmmaking experiments of Deren, Stan Brakhage, and Jonas Mekas. Her kaleidoscopic vision continuously upended representational expectations about the female body and the expression of sexual and romantic desire as well as the formation of the self on screen. Many of the photographs included in Truant relate directly to Hammer's better-known work as a filmmaker; others are considerably more spontaneous and personal, even diaristic. There are private moments of sex and nudity—two crucial subjects that she has investigated in film, photography, sculpture, and performance throughout her career. Bodies cavort beside a river, in fields, and in museums. Women look at art. There are landscapes and animals. Known women: the feminist artist and writer Tee Corinne, for one, makes numerous appearances across the decade. Lesser known women, too. There are women in nature, and women in the world. Often, that woman is the artist herself. She bears witness to her body and its changes, and in doing so, she brings herself closer and closer to the viewer. In one self-portrait, taken in Baja, California in 1974, she turns the camera directly on her own face, revealing a mute expression of indifference, her lips turned in a slight frown, as if the camera did not impress her. She is, at times, ambivalent. Most of the time, she is fascinated, captivated by her body and the bodies of others. When a lover sits on the toilet or Hammer makes love with a girlfriend or finds herself alone and bored, she has her camera ready, so that each event (or nonevent, for that matter) becomes material that she meticulously documents. When a lover injures her leg, Hammer photographs her crotch with a crutch lying beside it, a visual pun that predicts Hammer's later interest in disability and illness, especially in the 2000s, when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, a disease she has lived with ever since. Notions of perfection and imperfection (and, in a related subject, youth and age) are taken up and challenged throughout the photographs as Hammer considers the many types of bodies and individuals who compose lesbian life. Barbara Hammer (b. 1939) is an American feminist artist known as a pioneer in experimental film. She has had film retrospectives at the Jeu de Palme (Paris), Museum of Modern Art (New York), Tate Modern, National Gallery of Art (DC), Kunsthall (Oslo, Norway), Toronto Film Festival, and Pink Life Queer Festival (Ankara and Istanbul, Turkey). Her work was included in the 1985, 1989, and 1993 Whitney Biennials and is included in the permanent collections of the Australian Center for the Moving Image, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Centre Georges Pompidou, and elsewhere. She is the author of Hammer! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life (Feminist Press 2009). She holds a Masters in Literature (1963) and a Masters in Film (1975) from San Francisco State University in California. She lives and works in New York City and Kerhonkson, New York.

Prague, 1912 (the Savoy Café Yiddish Theatre) - Theater for the New City Through November 26, 2017 - New York

Presented by Theater for the New City November 9 to 26, 2017 Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave. (at E. 10th Street), East Village Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 PM, Sundays at 3:00 PM. special 3:00 PM matinee Sat, Nov 25. No performance Nov 23 (Thanksgiving); $12 general admission, $10 seniors. Running time :80minutes Box office (212) 254-1109, www.theaterforthenewcity.net Critics are invited on or after November 10. New York -- Prague, 1912 (the Savoy Café Yiddish Theatre) by Lu Hauser is a comedy based on historic personalities of the Yiddish Theater. A vagabond acting company comes to Prague: it's Jak Lowy and his leading lady, Mme. Trassik. Lowy is a veteran actor who has put stars in her eyes and they are lovers. When they act together, it's magic, but their repertoire is a shambles and they subsist more by selling baked sweet potatoes than by selling tickets to their unconventional versions of classic plays. What emerges is a backstage comedy of their love-hate relationship and their entrapment of a sympathetic local writer named Gregor Samsa. Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave, will premiere the work November 9 to 26, directed by George Ferencz. What ensues is a backstage comedy of this trio's creative process that is a celebration of the theater. Ferencz guided playwright Hauser in the evolution of the play, which was written between 2009 and her death in 2011. The characters Lowy and Trassik are loosely inspired by the Yiddish Theater figures Itzhak Lowy, a prominent Polish Yiddish Theater actor who died in the Treblinka extermination camp, and Mania Tshissik, a member of his troupe. They were both bullheaded, constantly at loggerheads and obstinate with each other. Jenne Vath plays Mme. Trassik, John Barilla plays Lowy and Jason Howard plays Gregor Samsa. Alex Wilborn provides vintage WWI yiddish songs on the cornet. Set and lighting dsign are by Mark Marcante. Costume design is by three-time Emmy winner Sally Lesser. Sound design is by Obie-winner Tim Schellenbaum. Special Props are designed by Lytza Colon. Stage Manager is Karen Pontius. Playwright Lu Hauser (1924-2011) was a classical actress who turned to playwriting. Her works have been produced at EST, The Cherry Lane, The 92nd Street Y, The Public, The Actors Theater of Louisville, Intiman Theater of Seattle, the New Stage Theater of Jackson, Mississippi, and The Goodman Theater in Chicago. Her "Lincoln on Hester Street" was awarded the first place prize by the American Alliance for Theater and Education and was produced at Theater For the New City directed by Ferencz, in 2009. Her "Not Dead Yet," "New Parachutes" and "The Client (a.k.a The New Montana)" were produced in the inaugural season of The 42nd Street Workshop. Her other plays include "The Anton Series," "One in a Million (a.k.a. King of Coney Island Frank)," "Boardwalk" and "Crane in Love (a.k.a.Sadie)."

Sophie Tucker – the Last of the Red Hot Mamas - Museum at Eldridge Street Through November 27, 2017 - New York

Russian-born Jewish immigrant Sophie Tucker evolved into a larger than life show-business phenomena. Dubbed "The First Lady of Show Business" for her bold and brassy persona, she sang songs of humorous raciness during a career that spanned sixty years. Her years in vaudeville, burlesque, nightclubs and concert halls were accompanied by the great inventions of the day: phonographs, nickelodeons, movies, radio and television. In this two-session course, we will explore the show business landscape of the early 20th century, the influence of Yiddish culture though the 21st century, and Sophie Tucker's indelible mark on the business and entertainers who followed. Maxine Simson is a lecturer with the NYC Department of Aging and the owner of The Natural Resources Public Relations DBA, a PR and multi-media company.

Explorer, writer, and art collector Erling Kagge will be featured as this year's Visionary speaker. The Stuart Regen Visionaries Series at the New Museum honors forward-thinking individuals in art, architecture, design, film, and related disciplines of contemporary culture. Now in its ninth year, the annual series spotlights innovators who shape intellectual life and the future of culture. One of the world's great explorers, Kagge is recognized for a number of extraordinary accomplishments. He was the first person to surmount the "three poles" (North Pole, South Pole, and the summit of Mount Everest); the first person to walk alone to the South Pole; and in 1990, with Børge Ousland, the first person to reach the North Pole unsupported. To complete the first unsupported expedition to the South Pole in 1992–93, Kagge covered 814 miles in fifty days, leading to a feature on the cover of TIME magazine. Kagge's explorations have continued in new forms over the years: in 2010 he and urban historian Steve Duncan hiked through the sewers, subways, and water tunnels of New York, walking for five days from the Bronx, through Manhattan, to the Atlantic Ocean. After reaching the three poles, Kagge studied philosophy at Cambridge University, and in 1996 he founded the Oslo-based publishing house Kagge Forlag, which quickly became one of Norway's leading book publishers. Kagge has written a number of books—translated into several languages—on exploration, philosophy, and art collecting, and has contributed to publications including the Guardian. Kagge is a leading collector of international contemporary art and Russian icons. On Tuesday, November 28, Kagge will deliver his Visionary lecture in the New Museum Theater, in conjunction with the publication of his new book, Silence: In the Age of Noise (Pantheon Books, November 2017), an exploration of and meditation on silence through his own experiences and the observations of poets, artists, and explorers. Previous Visionary honorees include essayist and critic Fran Lebowitz (in conversation with filmmaker Martin Scorsese) (2016); critic and author Hilton Als (2015); Darren Aronofsky, Academy Award–nominated director, screenwriter, and producer (in conversation with novelist and critic Lynne Tillman) (2014); Matthew Weiner, writer, director, and producer of Mad Men (in conversation with writer A.M. Homes) (2013); artist and architect Maya Lin (2012); Alice Waters, chef, author, activist, and proprietor of Chez Panisse Restaurant & Café (2011); Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia (2010); and legendary choreographer Bill T. Jones (2009), whose talk inaugurated this signature program.

Inspired by the 1939 The New York Times article “The World of Tomorrow as it appeared under the Snow of Yesterday” and its black-and-white photographs of the snow-covered exhibits from the 1939 New York World’s Fair, Terratic Animism takes Times Square’s visitors on a digitally simulated journey through a futuristic wintry forest. Jakob Steensen mixes realities, combining virtual recreations of a forest with screens showing recorded footage of Steensen’s performative explorations through derelict energy structures.

This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing - Atlantic Theatre for Kids Through November 30, 2017 - New York

Three young sisters are left in a forest by their woodcutter father and forced to find their own way in the world. From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made — one sister walks one way to find purpose, one the other to find adventure, and the third stays right where she is to create a home. Years later, having circumnavigated the globe and fought vikings, crossed oceans, tamed wilds, and achieved greatness, the three sisters meet again, as women. A moving and irresistibly charming modern-day fable for the whole family, recommended for ages 6 and up.

Set in South Central LA, OEDIPUS EL REY is an electrifying new take on the Greek tragedy, written by acclaimed playwright Luis Alfaro (Electricidad, Straight as a Line). Oedipus is reimagined as a troubled Latino whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar above the barbed wire of the prison where he's spent his life. But in a place where everyone is trapped—by desperation or fate, history or violence—no one man can change his story alone. Love, family and belief collide in this chilling, incredibly powerful new play that asks: what's fate, and what's just the system?

Based on new scientific information and personal experiences, the international Open Call for this exhibition asked artists and scientists to help create a new public perception of OCEAN by sharing creative visions of our deep connections to her, the health issues she faces, and feelings she inspires in us. This juried exhibition was organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI).

The Art of Science 2014 showcases images of artistic merit created during the course of scientific research. The exhibition spurs debate among artists about the nature of art, opens scientists to new ways of "seeing" their own research, and serves as a window through which the general public can appreciate both art and science. These images were chosen from more than 250 submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff and alumni representing more than 25 different departments at Princeton University. They span the fields of electrical engineering, ecology, evolution, chemistry and biology with images of termites, cockroaches, fruit flies and geological structures.

Share ideas and enjoy stories, sketching, and other gallery activities that bring works of art to life around this month's theme, Journeys.

Playwright Julia Cho (Durango, The Language Archive) returns to the Public with a taut new drama about a teacher and student desperate to change the narrative of who they are and how their story ends. Gina was warned that one of her students would be a problem. Eighteen years old and strikingly odd, Dennis writes violently obscene work clearly intended to unsettle those around him. Determined to know whether he's a real threat, Gina compels Dennis to attend her office hours. But as the clock ticks down, Gina realizes that "good" versus "bad" is nothing more than a convenient illusion, and that the isolated young student in her office has learned one thing above all else: that for the powerless, the ability to terrify others is powerful indeed. Neel Keller (The Nether, Forever) directs this inventive, penetrating new drama about a single day that could end in tragedy or hope -- and the endless possibilities in between.

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson - Grey Art Gallery, NYU Through December 09, 2017 - New York

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson explores how Alfred Barr, the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) first director, and Philip Johnson, the curator of architecture, introduced modern design to North America. The exhibition’s story begins when Barr and Johnson traveled to Europe in the late 1920s and early 1930s and discovered that leading European architects—such as Le Corbusier, J. J. P. Oud, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe–were rejecting ornament in favor of a purity of form. Barr and Johnson dubbed this new architectural language “International Style.” Featuring more than 100 objects—including furniture, photographs, and industrial and graphic design—the exhibition traces the development of modern design from its origins at Bauhaus to Barr and Johnson’s radical experiments in their homes in New York City to MoMA’s nationally influential exhibition in the 1930s and beyond.

The New York Times has called Tony Award-winning playwright and director Richard Nelson's plays "a triumph of civic theater." This season, the writer-director of the acclaimed Apple Family Plays and last season's The Gabriels returns to 425 Lafayette to reveal a forgotten chapter of The Public Theater's own history. It is 1958, and New York City is in the midst of a major building boom; a four-lane highway is planned for the heart of Washington Square; Carnegie Hall is designated for demolition; entire neighborhoods on the West Side are leveled to make room for a new "palace of art." And a young Joe Papp and his colleagues face betrayals, self-inflicted wounds, and anger from the city's powerful elite as they continue their free Shakespeare productions in Central Park. From the creator of the most celebrated family plays of the last decade comes a drama about a different kind of family – one held together by the simple and incredibly complicated belief that the theater, and the city, belong to all of us.

La MaMa Exhibit: A Poster History of La MaMa's Downtown Community - Astor Place Through December 10, 2017 - New York

María de Echevarría: Fields of Light and Color - Saint Peter's Church Through December 10, 2017 - New York

Nature, once again, inspired the Argentinian painter María de Echevarría to create a set of abstract and semi-abstract landscapes, of which more than 20 are presented in this exhibit. "In all these paintings my aim is to convey my emotional response and artistic vision to the magnificent light and colors observed in fields, skies and water from dawn to sunset." María started painting in 1991. Since then, her art education has been the never-ending process that takes place mainly during the actual act of painting. There is also the study and direct observation of works by masters like Georgia O'Keeffe and Mark Rothko. She took classes at The Art Student League of New York and studied under the Peruvian painter Reynaldo Bisetti in New York. De Echevarría has shown her work extensively in and out of New York. Examples in New York are the one-artist exhibits at the United Nations Headquarters, the Living Room Gallery of Saint Peter's Church and the Consulate of Argentina. Galleries in SoHo and Chelsea have presented her work in individual and group shows as well.

A DEAL is a dark comedy that features a Chinese family’s home buying journey in New York in winter 2015, a time of increased real estate property ownership by overseas Chinese and a sharp decline in the value of the RMB against the US dollar. It reveals the ideological conflicts between the East and the West in contemporary society by tracking a little stream of the global cash flow.

On view in the Patrica D. Klingenstein Library, New-York Historical explores what it means to be an American citizen through documents and manuscripts from its collection, as part of the CitizenshipProject. The U.S. Constitution, drafted in 1787, established a new nation. It also introduced national citizenship, the eligibility for which would be determined by Congress. The Naturalization Act of 1790 offered citizenship to "free white persons" who had resided in the country for at least two years and could prove they were of good character. Naturalization is the process through which someone becomes a citizen. Although eligibility for U.S. Citizenship has changed repeatedly since 1790, three aspects of naturalization have remained the same: the act of petitioning or applying for citizenship, taking an oath of allegiance to the United States, and receiving a document that certifies citizenship. Learn more about the documents on view. This exhibit was curated by Nina Nazionale, director of library operations and curator of printed collections.

During its Golden Age (1920s-50s), radio was the primary form of home entertainment.

Session two will further explore the influence of this form of mass communication, the technical aspects of program delivery with a focus on the nationwide panic caused by a realistic radio dramatization of a Martian invasion of Earth called "War of the Worlds."

Walter Asmus directed Waiting for Godot and worked with Samuel Beckett in Berlin in the 1970s, author Edna O'Brien and publisher John Calder made up his circle in London, and actor Lisa Dwan gave life to Not I as never before. These are some of the luminaries who made up a world of Beckett, both during his life, and after his passing. John Minihan captures their essence in black and white portraiture, including his iconic images of Beckett himself. In his artist talk "Beckett and the Wake," John remembers spending time with a playwright who was often a reluctant subject and rarely posed. John Minihan photographed volumes I and II of IAC's cultural exhibition To Love Two Countries, a celebration of the men and women who immigrated to the United States in the early half of the twentieth century. Culture Night is an annual public event in Ireland that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts.

They merge in forms that celebrate the imperfect and come, in the artist’s words, “straight off the nervous system”.

In a time of alternative truths and truthiness, we ask that you show us your truth. What is real and true for you?

This memoir is about Bob Brody's occasional successes and frequent failures; about his often-hapless attempts to be a good son, a good husband, a good father and, yes, a good son-in-law; and about his emergence, long overdue and against all odds, from spoiled suburbanite to someone vaguely resembling a grown-up, a family man from head to toe. "Bob Brody's Playing Catch with Strangers is a gem. . . . This collection is filled with insights, wit, pithy observations, common sense and neighborly decency. This delightful and thought-provoking memoir proves that Brody has developed into a master of the short essay." —Dan Rather, former CBS News anchor "A good man, Bob Brody is also an observant one. Nothing escapes his vision. Growing up with deaf parents, he learned to listen hard to the world around him, and this poignant memoir is the result." —Phillip Lopate, author of Inside My Head and editor of The Art of the Personal Essay "In this winning memoir, Bob Brody wears his heart on both sleeves, along with a chip on both shoulders. He's every inch a diehard New Yorker, equally tender and tough. Give the guy credit: he gets stabbed five weeks after moving into the city, but sticks around for the next 41 years." —Nicholas Pileggi, author of Goodfellas

This exhibition surveys the career of the preeminent Dada and Surrealist artist Max Ernst (French and American, born Germany. 1891–1976), with particular emphasis on his ceaseless experimentation. Ernst began his pursuit of radical new techniques that went "beyond painting" to articulate the irrational and unexplainable in the wake of World War I, continuing through the advent and aftermath of World War II. Featuring approximately 100 works drawn from the Museum's collection, the exhibition includes paintings that challenged material and compositional conventions; collages and overpaintings utilizing found printed reproductions; frottages (rubbings); illustrated books and collage novels; sculptures of painted stone and bronze; and prints made using a range of techniques. Several major, multipart projects represent key moments in Ernst's long career, ranging from early Dada and Surrealist portfolios of the late 1910s and 1920s to his late masterpiece—a recent acquisition to MoMA's collection—65 Maximiliana, ou l'exercice illégale de l'astronomie (1964). This illustrated book comprises 34 aquatints complemented by imaginative typographic designs and a secret hieroglyphic script of the artist's own invention. Floor Two, The Paul J. Sachs Galleries

Charles White—Leonardo da Vinci. Curated by David Hammons - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through January 01, 2018 - New York

Charles White (1918–1979) taught drawing in Los Angeles from the mid-1960s until the end of his life, and mentored a generation of students. Among them is David Hammons (American, born 1943), who studied with White early in his career. This exhibition, curated by Hammons, includes White's monumental work Black Pope (Sandwich Board Man)(1973), from The Museum of Modern Art's collection, and a brush and ink drawing on blue prepared paper by the Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, lent by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from the British Royal Collection. Created over 450 years apart, the two works share formal similarities and reveal a devotion to drawing by both artists, linking their lasting influence on future generations. White and Leonardo also shared a more personal connection: both were born in the first half of April. With this in mind, Hammons commissioned Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal to read both artists' natal charts, also on view in the exhibition and discussed by Ullal on the accompanying audio guide. By presenting their destinies as written in the stars, Hammons shifts our attention from the gallery to the galaxy and asks us to consider commonalities between these two artists. Appearing a year prior to the forthcoming MoMA exhibition Charles White: A Retrospective, this project begins the Museum's consideration of White's work and his legacy.

For thousands of years, peoples around the world practiced mummification as a way of preserving and honoring their dead. Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. In Mummies, ancient remains from the Nile Valley of Africa and the Andes Mountains of South America will be on view, allowing visitors to connect with cultures from the distant past. Mummification, a more widespread practice than most think, was used not only for royal Egyptians but also for common people and even animals. The process was employed by cultures around the world. In the Chancay culture of Peru, mummifying deceased family members meant relatives could keep connected with their loved ones; some families even brought mummy bundles to festivals. Egyptians, on the other hand, created mummies to help individuals enter the afterlife, often encasing the mummies in elaborately painted sarcophagi. At Mummies, interactive touch tables let visitors virtually "unravel" or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within. Other parts of the exhibition showcase the latest isotopic and DNA testing being performed on mummies, and explain how these sophisticated analytical techniques are helping scientists discover important clues about long-vanished practices. Mummies was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago.

Drawn to Greatness: Master Drawings from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum Through January 07, 2018 - New York

This exhibition highlights more than 150 master drawings from the Thaw Collection, one of the world's finest private collections containing over 400 sheets. Assembled over the last fifty years, and made a promised gift to the Morgan in 1975, the collection has now been given in full to the museum by Life Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Drawn to Greatness focuses on pivotal artists and key moments in the history of draftsmanship. Works by major masters from the Renaissance to the modern era will be on view, including Mantegna, Rubens, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Piranesi, Watteau, Fragonard, Goya, Ingres, Turner, Daumier, Redon, Degas, Cézanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, and Pollock.

War and Pieced: the Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics - American Folk Art Museum Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York, in collaboration with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, University of Lincoln–Nebraska. Cocurated by Dr. Annette Gero, international quilt historian, author, and collector, and Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum. War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Once termed "Soldiers'" or "Convalescent Quilts," the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century. The exhibition further relates these military quilts to an earlier technique of pictorial inlaid or intarsia quilts, made with felted wools during the Prussian and Napoleonic wars beginning in the mid-eighteenth century. The visual virtuosity of the quilts, often incorporating many thousands of pieces no larger than one-inch square, assumes a deeper emotional resonance as we consider them within the matrix of war and its aftermath. The quilts are drawn primarily from the unparalleled collection of internationally acclaimed quilt authority Dr. Annette Gero, with additional examples from public and private collections, many never before on view.

Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo - Brooklyn Museum Through January 07, 2018 - Prospect Heights

At particular moments in history, artists use their artwork to reveal social, cultural, and political complexities, responding to the times in which they live. Bringing together the work of three innovative chroniclers, Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo offers insight into the energy, empathy, and creativity with which these artists recounted and reimagined their realities. Together spanning four centuries and three continents, Spanish artist Francisco Goya (1746–1828), Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein (1898–1948), and contemporary American artist Robert Longo (born 1953) each witnessed a turbulent transition from one era to another and the profound repercussions of revolution, war, and civil unrest. Within a broad chronological framework, Proof traces the historical lineage of a visual language and artistic impulse. Featuring artwork almost exclusively in black and white, Proof showcases the artists' technical acuity and bold experimentation in three mediums: etching, film, and charcoal drawing. With a rare combination of selections, it invites viewers to find new meaning in artworks not normally encountered together. These works call to mind images—such as mutiny on a Russian battleship, or American riot police standing guard at a political protest—that are usually represented through journalistic coverage, yet they express the artists' personal, often emotional, perspectives. As the exhibition title suggests, Goya, Eisenstein, and Longo together provide proof not only of significant events or actions, but more crucially of their ongoing resonances through art.

Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 - South Street Seaport Museum Through January 07, 2018 - South Street Seaport

Learn all about 20th-century ocean liners, like Titanic and Lusitania, and the differences between traveling aboard as a first- or third-class passenger. Featuring both original and reproduced artifacts, this thought-provoking exhibit highlights immigrant life at the turn of the century.

Treasure bindings—book covers encrusted with gold, silver, and gemstones—were a luxury in the Middle Ages. Few survive, and some of the finest examples are in the Morgan's distinguished collection. Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasure Bindings presents these masterpieces in context for the first time. The treasure bindings on view include star sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, pearls, and garnets, alongside illuminated manuscripts and printed books that depict two-dimensional representations of these precious materials. Among the exhibition highlights will be the ninth-century Lindau Gospels, one of the two finest Carolingian jeweled bindings in the world, and the thirteenth-century Berthold Sacramentary, the most luxurious German manuscript of its time. In these and other examples, we learn that the application of gemstones and precious metals served to venerate the texts inside and embellish church services, as well as reflect the status and wealth of the patrons who commissioned them. Images of "imagined" gems are also featured on the pages of manuscripts and printed books presented, including three examples of Venetian books, hand-painted by Girolamo da Cremona. The artist's frontispieces to Augustine's City of God (1475), Plutarch's Parallel Lives (1478), and Aristotle's Opera (1483) are masterpieces of trompe-l'oeil. The last has been called the "most magnificent printed book in the world."

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times - New-York Historical Society Through January 07, 2018 - New York

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times is a new exhibition commemorating President John F. Kennedy's private life and public trajectory. One of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled, it brings together images from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives that capture public and private moments from Kennedy's life. Some of the photographs on display are iconic; others have rarely been seen. Kennedy's administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America. No single politician was photographed more than Kennedy—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946 and his fairy-tale wedding to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 to his run for the White House in 1960 and the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. Documentary photographers such as Ed Clark, Lisl Steiner, Ralph Crane, Philippe Halsman, Ted Spiegel Jacques Lowe, Lawrence Schiller, Steve Schapiro, and Sam Vestal captured the optimism and challenges of the early 1960s in some of the finest and most vivid images of the period. New-York Historical's presentation of American Visionary is part of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum's year-long, nationwide celebration that commemorates Kennedy's centennial year. Based on the new book JFK: A Vision for America by Stephen Kennedy Smith and Douglas Brinkley, the exhibition is organized and curated by Lawrence Schiller of Wiener Schiller Productions and Marilyn Satin Kushner, curator and head, Department of Prints, Photographs, and Architectural Collections at the New-York Historical Society.The exhibition is also on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum through September 17. American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times is presented by New-York Historical Society and Wiener Schiller Productions in cooperation with the John F. Kennedy Library and Foundation. Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the Governance Institute and the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. Additional support has been provided by Stephen Kennedy Smith and Getty Images. Exhibitions at the New-York Historical Society are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Working primarily in painting and drawing, Fernanda Mello reinterprets folkloric culture she learned as a child growing up in Brazil. A self-taught artist, Mello derives her artistic inspiration from her studies of South American tribes and shamans of the Amazon region. In Mirror's Inhabitants, she catalogs the life of Davi Kopenawa, an important indigenous shaman from Brazil who advocated for rainforest conservation and indigenous rights in light of the arrival of gold miners and their diseases in his region. Fernanda Mello has exhibited at Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn; the Fort Tilden National Recreation Area; the Regents Canal Festival and The Brick Lane Gallery, both in London; Grand Palais, Paris; Galeria Olho d'Agua, Brasilia; and FilaAC, São Paulo. She is the recipient of an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and currently resides in Brooklyn.

Closed Mondays Intrigued by the complicated relationship people have with death and grief, Leigh Davis explores the moments directly proceeding, during, or right after someone loses a loved one. Working in a variety of media, Davis creates an archive of End-of-Life Experiences (or ELEs), which can be described as any sort of deathbed coincidence, premonition, change in atmosphere, or peculiar vision. Through interactions with funeral directors, hospice nurses, religious leaders, and people of all spiritual backgrounds, Davis has accumulated an assemblage of images and oral and written accounts that bridge the mystical gap between the earthly realm and that of the spiritual.

In his absorbing short films, Los Angeles–based artist and filmmaker Kahlil Joseph (b. 1981, Seattle, WA) conjures the lush and impressionistic quality of dreams with particular reverence for quotidian moments and intimate scenes. Music always figures centrally in Joseph's works, and sounds reverberate as vital and powerful analogues for the play of images through which he chronicles the stories and rhythms of his subjects. As much as they plumb the history of cinema and moving images, Joseph's films also find a parallel in the lyricism, complexity, and affective power of black musical traditions. In "Kahlil Joseph: Shadow Play," his first solo presentation in New York, Joseph debuts Fly Paper (2017), a new film installation that departs from his admiration of the work of Roy DeCarava (1919–2009), a photographer and artist known for his images of celebrated jazz musicians and everyday life in Harlem. With Fly Paper, Joseph extends DeCarava's virtuosity with chiaroscuro effects to the moving image and brings together a range of film and digital footage to contemplate the dimensions of past, present, and future in Harlem and New York City. Joseph's new film also touches on themes of filiation, influence, and legacy, marking a personal reckoning that intuitively calls upon his connections to the city through his family—and in particular, his late father, whom he cared for in Harlem at the end of his life. Fly Paper's dynamic yet contemplative mood also builds on Joseph's sense that layers of lived experience—and stories—are sedimented in the places that have played host to the aspirations and daily lives of countless individuals. Harlem's renown as the epicenter of black culture in the US is at the heart of Fly Paper, which builds on an interplay of artistic forms as much as it engages Joseph's relationship to an accomplished community of black artists, writers, actors, and musicians who call New York home. Through various references to literature and narration, Fly Paper also probes the ways in which the literary imagination parallels that of film and how the ordinary act of storytelling shapes larger histories and enduring myths. With its dexterous ambiguities in narrative and its heterogeneous depictions of Harlem, Joseph's film takes measure of depths and nuances that are often invisible or oversimplified. Fly Paper also moves beyond the visible by expanding Joseph's practice into sound, unfolding a complex acoustic environment in which sonic textures and original compositions resonate throughout the exhibition space. As a rich and polyphonic portrait of black art and culture in New York City, Fly Paper invites a meditation on the slippery nature of memory, reverie, and the photographic image. "Kahlil Joseph: Shadow Play" is curated by Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator, and Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson Artistic Director. Kahlil Joseph (b. 1981, Seattle, WA) is an artist and filmmaker based in Los Angeles. His first solo presentation at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2015), was followed by two-person exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum, Seattle, with his late brother Noah Davis (2016), and at Blum & Poe, Los Angeles, with Henry Taylor (2016). Joseph has screened his works in the Toronto International Film Festival, the Marfa Film Festival, and the Sundance Film Festival, where he received the Grand Jury Prize for Short Films in 2013. He has also exhibited in group shows at the Studio Museum in Harlem (2016); the Hayward Gallery, London (2016); the Underground Museum, Los Angeles (2015); and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2014). In 2016, Joseph was nominated for an Emmy award for his co-direction of Beyonce's Lemonade. He is also the recipient of a 2016 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship and a 2017 Los Angeles Artadia Award.

Drawing from the iconography of his outer-Philadelphia upbringing, Alex Da Corte (b. 1980, Camden, NJ) creates vibrant paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations that infuse everyday artifacts with symbolic power. His theatrical assemblages combine personal narratives and remixed references with the glossy aesthetics of commercial culture. Through subtle manipulation, repurposing, and juxtaposition of objects and icons, he unearths the eerie and absurd qualities that underlie the seemingly familiar. At once dazzling and ominous, his surreal amalgams chart the psychological complexities, desires, and illusions that haunt late-capitalist culture. For the inaugural installation in the window of the New Museum's 231 Bowery building, Da Corte presents "Harvest Moon," a new project that evokes the storefront of a soon-to-open Wawa, an East Coast chain of convenience stores founded outside Philadelphia. The window on the right is covered with a vinyl sign announcing a future development, with the words "coming soon" atop an image of an enlarged hoagie—a sandwich native to the Philadelphia area and a signature of Wawa stores. On the left, an illuminated sign rests on a pallet as if waiting to be installed on the building's façade. The iconography of a goose in flight before a harvest moon was chosen for the logo, as the "Wawa," an Ojibwe word for the Canada goose, is said to echo the company's principles of teamwork and encouragement. "Harvest Moon" also references the popular 1992 song by Neil Young about an enduring love. Placed upside down and backwards, Da Corte's sign reads "Mama," a gesture that reflects the corporatization of familial devotion, sustenance, and nurture. "Alex Da Corte: Harvest Moon" is the first in a new series of window installations, which relaunches the program the New Museum originally mounted in the 1980s. These include now-legendary projects by Jeff Koons ("The New," 1980), David Hammons ("Rented Earth," 1980), Linda Montano ("Seven Years of Living Art," 1984–91), Bruce Nauman ("No, No, No, No!," 1987), and Gran Fury ("Let the Record Show…," 1990), among others.

Every year there are films that resonate far beyond a theatrical release—if they manage to find their way to a commercial screen at all—or film festival appearance. Their significance can be attributed to a variety of factors, from structure to subject matter to language, but these films are united in their lasting impact on the cinematic art form. For this annual series, the Department of Film combs through major studio releases and the top film festivals in the world, selecting influential, innovative films made in the past 12 months that we believe will stand the test of time. Whether bound for awards glory or destined to become a cult classic, each of these films is a contender for lasting historical significance, and any true cinephile will want to catch them on the big screen.

DAVID HOCKNEY WORKS ON PAPER, 1961 – 2009 - Paul Kasmin Gallery Through January 13, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce David Hockney: Works on Paper, 1961 – 2009, the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery on view from November 9 to January 13 at 297 Tenth Avenue. The exhibition will present a selection of Hockney's recent East Yorkshire landscapes, as well as intimate portraits and set designs from as early as 1961 during his time as a student at the Royal College of Art. Hockney's interest in landscape and nature's cycles was ignited in recent years after returning in 1999 to East Yorkshire, England a lush area near his hometown of Bradford. In composing his landscapes, Hockney would continuously return to the same location in order to capture the gradual changes of seasons across a range of media. The exhibition will feature four charcoal on paper works including Hockney's Autumn Thixendale, October 19t , 2008, and Fresh Timber on Woldgate, 2008, that emphasize the soft, organic forms of the foliage in play with the seasonal weather, flanked against stark farming patterns of the Yorkshire countryside. Created at the outset of his career, Hockney's drawings from the 1960s and 70s capture the development of what would become his iconic and inventive style, often reflecting on his travels and friends of the moment. In Kasmin,1973, Hockney uses pencil on paper to depict his art dealer seated in a Parisian studio that once belonged to Balthus. This work was made at a time when Hockney "was trying to break out of something…of what [he] called 'obsessive naturalism."1 Executed years later, Peter Langan, 1981, is a compelling example of Hockney's portraiture, made with the most economical of marks and clever for the innovative approach to scale with respect to the head within the composition. The exhibition will coincide with the major retrospective, David Hockney, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, which had staged earlier this year at the Tate Britain, London and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. DAVID HOCKNEY (b. 1937, Bradford, England) . is a pioneer of the British Pop Art movement and one of the most influential living artists today. The artist is universally recognized for his singular aesthetic developed through a myriad of media, including photographic collages, opera staging, paintings, and drawings using materials ranging from pencil to iPad. Paul Kasmin Gallery presented its first exhibition of David Hockney's work in 2015, which featured a selection of the artist's early drawings. The artist currently lives and works in Los Angeles and East Yorkshire, England

Nayland Blake: Crossing Object (Inside Gnomen) - New Museum Through January 13, 2018 - Lower East Side

Gnomen, a Hybrid Bear-Bison That Can Change Sex and Gender, Is the "Fursona" of Artist Nayland Blake. a Fursona Is an Avatar in the Furry Community, Where Personal Expression Is Bound up with Nonhuman Identities and Fantasies. in the Performance Series Crossing Object (Inside Gnomen) (2017–18), Presented as a Part of "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon," Blake Will Inhabit a Life-Size Suit of Gnomen and Make Themselves Available for Encounters with Museum Visitors. with the Title, Blake Refers to W.D. Winnicott's Notion of the Transitional Object: a Stuffed Toy or Blanket That Children Use to Construct a Sense of Selfhood Independent of Their Parents. Gnomen Serves as an Objectification of Blake's Hybrid Identity, and Their Presence in the Museum's Café and Lobby Will Allow Visitors to Make Their Own Performances of Intimacy and Distance, Whether Through Taking Selfies, Cuddling, or Adding Ribbons and Bows to Gnomen's Costume. in This, the Piece Echoes Blake's Earlier Performances, in Which the Passivity of Their Costumed Presence Foregrounds the Audience's Role in Acts of Sadism, Exhibitionism, or Nurturing. in These Intimate Situations, the Close Proximity to Gnomen Will Be Tantalizing for Some, and Make for a Remarkable, If Somewhat Confusing, Spectacle for Others. Nayland Blake (B. 1960) Is an Interdisciplinary Artist Residing in New York. Blake's Work Has Been Shown Extensively, Including Recent Solo Exhibitions at the Garage at the David Ireland House, San Francisco (2017); Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2015); Matthew Marks Gallery, New York (2013); and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco (2012), Among Others. Blake Participated in the 1991 Whitney Biennial and the 1993 Venice Biennale, and Was Awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2012.

LEE KRASNER: The Umber Paintings, 1959 - 1962 - Paul Kasmin Gallery Through January 13, 2018 - New York

Charles Dickens and the Spirit of Christmas - The Morgan Library & Museum Through January 14, 2018 - New York

During his life, Charles Dickens (1812–1870) acquired the kind of celebrity accorded only to international film stars today. That status was secured with the publication of A Christmas Carol, one of the most beloved holiday stories of all time—and one of the Morgan's greatest literary manuscripts. Its immediate success in 1843 led to four equally popular Christmas novellas in as many years. Catapulting the author out of his study and onto the reading circuit in 1853, its universal popularity also had major consequences for Dickens. Charles Dickens and the Spirit of Christmas assembles, for the first time, all five manuscripts of Dickens's Christmas books—A Christmas Carol (1843), The Chimes (1844), The Cricket on the Hearth (1845), The Battle of Life (1846), and The Haunted Man (1848)—to explore the genesis, composition, publication, and reception of A Christmas Carol, and its impact on Dickens's life. This exhibition explores the personal and socio-political sources of inspiration for A Christmas Carol, Dickens's method of composition, and the motivations behind writing one of the most famous, enduring, and widely adapted stories in all of literature. This exhibition marks the 150th anniversary of Dickens's famous reading tour of the United States in 1867, and will thus examine his later career as a performer. His public readings of A Christmas Carol, which he began in the 1850s, played a pioneering role in what is now commonplace in the marketing of fiction: the reading tour. Among the unexpected and unintended consequences of the success of A Christmas Carol was Dickens's decision to devote enormous energies to his public readings.

Video Arcade: Changing Exhibitions Gallery - Museum of the Moving Image Through January 15, 2018 - Astoria

In 1980, $2.8 billion in quarters were pumped into video arcade games in the United States, more than triple the revenue from any previous year. The video arcade had arrived, as a popular culture phenomenon and a vital force in the entertainment industry. Improved graphics, game design, and marketing made such games as Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man into addictive and commercially successful hits. At their peak, there were more than 10,000 video arcades across the country. Within a decade, the rise of the personal computer and home consoles would mark the end of the video arcade’s golden age. This arcade allows visitors to play 23 of the era’s most beloved games, in their original form. Games on view include: 10 Yard Fight (1983) Arkanoid (1986) Battlezone (1980) Centipede (1980) Defender (1981) Dig Dug (1982) Donkey Kong (1981) Frogger (1981) Galaxy Force II (1988) Gauntlet (1985) Karate Champ (1984) Mortal Kombat (1992) Ms. Pac-Man (1981) NBA Jam (1993) Out Run (1986) Pole Position (1982) Q*Bert (1999) Robotron 2084 (1982) Star Wars (1983) Terminator 2 (1991) Track and Field (1983) Tron (1981) Zaxxon (1982) Tokens are required for play and may be purchased in the gallery at token machines or in the Museum store.

After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History - Asia Society Through January 21, 2018 - Upper East Side

In the ancient burial ground at Saqqara, Egypt, one animal cemetery alone has yielded over four million individual ibis mummies. And the nearby dog cemetery contained over seven million mummies, with countless others found throughout Egypt. This unusual aspect of ancient Egyptian culture and religion—the mummification of animals—has remained largely a mystery This exhibit explores the religious purpose of these mummies, how they were made, and why there are so many. Drawn from the museum's renowned collection, the exhibition features choice examples from among the many millions of mummies of birds, cats, dogs, snakes, and other animals preserved from at least thirty-one different cemeteries throughout Egypt. Animals were central to the ancient Egyptian worldview. Most animals had connections to a particular deity. After death, mummified animals’ souls could carry a message to a god.

Ominous threats filled the years around World War II—Nazism, the escalating plight of European Jews, Fascism, Japanese militarism, and racism. Arthur Szyk, the great 20th-century activist in art, confronted the turbulent, hate-filled period with forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes' destructive and inhumane policies. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art explores the activism of the Polish-born artist through more than 40 politically incisive works that underscore Szyk's role as a kind of "one man army" fighting odious policies and protagonists and advocating civil and human rights. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts, with Irvin Ungar, project adviser. The book, Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art, is available from the NYHistory Store. Support for Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is provided by Shelley and Steven Einhorn, the David Berg Foundation, the Edward and Sandra Meyer Foundation, and Nancy and Morris W. Offit. Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). Bourgeois's printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,200 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum's Marron Atrium. The artist's creative process is the organizing principle behind the exhibition. Over the course of her career, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime. Also, she said there was no "rivalry" between the mediums in which she worked, noting that "they say the same thing in different ways." Here, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings, and within thematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture, the body, and nature, as well as investigations of abstraction and works made from old garments and household fabrics. In addition, the evolving states and variants of her prints will be emphasized in order to reveal Bourgeois's creative thinking as it unfolded. Bringing together some 300 works, the exhibition celebrates the Museum's archive of Bourgeois prints as well as the completion of the online catalogue raisonné, Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints & Books, available now in process at moma.org/bourgeoisprints, and ultimately documenting over 4,600 printed sheets in all. The Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait exhibition catalogue, by Deborah Wye, is available now.

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi's 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology. The Items: Is Fashion Modern? exhibition catalogue, by Paola Antonelli and Michelle Millar Fisher, is available now.

Wiener Werkstätte 1903-1932: The Luxury of Beauty - Neue Galerie Through January 29, 2018 - New York

On October 26, 2017, Neue Galerie New York will present a major retrospective exhibition devoted to the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops), an artists' and craftsmens' collective that existed in Vienna from 1903 until 1932. More than 400 objects have been selected for the presentation, and the loans are drawn from both public and private collections in the United States and Europe, including significant pieces from Austria. This show surveys the entirety of the firm's extensive output in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawings, fashion, furniture, glass, graphic design, jewelry, metalwork, textiles, and wallpaper. Special highlights of the show will include iconic examples of furniture by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, which will be complemented by rare and often unique works crafted in silver, gold, and semiprecious stones that convey the Wiener Werkstätte's luxurious aesthetic. The Neue Galerie has previously staged monographic exhibitions dedicated to the work of Josef Hoffmann (2006), Koloman Moser (2013), and Dagobert Peche (2002), all major designers who shaped the aesthetic of the Wiener Werkstätte. This is the first comprehensive American museum presentation on the entire Wiener Werkstätte, and it will cover all the significant artists who were members, such as Hoffmann, Moser, and Peche, as well as less well-known designers such as Gudrun Baudisch, Carl Otto Czeschka, Berthold Löffler, Arnold Nechansky, Michael Powolny, Felix Rix-Ueno, Max Snischek, Vally Wieselthier, Eduard Josef Wimmer-Wisgrill, and Ugo Zovetti.

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kasim Sulton will be honoring his longtime association with the ground breaking progressive rock band Utopia and their legacy by performing a show consisting entirely of Utopia music with a full band. The set list will be comprised of songs hand-picked by Sulton, spanning the 10 albums he appears on, including deep cuts as well as many more familiar songs. "My career began with Utopia, says Sulton. "I can't think of a better way to honor my work with Todd, Roger, and Willie than to do a handful of shows that celebrate the special and unique music we created together." Utopia was initially formed in 1973 with somewhat of a fluid membership, and by mid-1976 settled into a stable quartet of Todd Rundgren (guitar, vocals), Kasim Sulton (bass, vocals), Roger Powell (keyboards, vocals), and Willie Wilcox (drums, vocals). All four band members wrote, sang, produced, and even engineered material for the band. Sulton wrote and sang lead on Utopia's biggest hit, "Set Me Free," from their best-selling album Adventures in Utopia (1980), which peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Top 40 charts in the U.S. BAND LINE-UP: Kasim Sulton – Bass and vocals Jesse Gress – Guitar and vocals Wade Preston – Piano and vocals Christopher Clark – Synth and vocals Andy Ascolese – Drums and vocals About Kasim Sulton: Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Kasim Sulton is recognized and respected the world over as a solo artist, and for his work with other artists including Todd Rundgren and Utopia, Meat Loaf, Joan Jett, Hall & Oates, Richie Sambora, Patti Smith, Patty Smyth, Mick Jagger, Blue Oyster Cult, and Don Felder to name just a few. He has added his esteemed input to a variety of projects, ranging from playing bass, keyboards, and/or guitar, to adding vocal harmonies, singing lead, and contributing as a songwriter, to producing entire albums, as he did with the Meat Loaf VH-1 Storytellers CD, released in 1999. His latest solo album, 3, was released in October 2014 and the lead single "Clocks All Stopped" features Todd Rundgren on guitar and background vocals, and Utopia keyboardist Roger Powell on the organ for a sound that is eerily reminiscent of the band's late '70s sound. "I was determined to write a song for this record that paid tribute to the band that started my professional career, Sulton wrote in the album's liner notes. "The music was the easy part. I never had a problem coming up with a few chord changes reminiscent of Utopia." "Clocks All Stopped" was a project over two years in the making, with Sulton working? collaboratively with British songwriter Phil Thornalley before inviting his Utopia bandmates to contribute to the single. There are also two cover songs on 3: "Too Much (On Her Mind)" by Bill Spooner, and the Gershwin Brothers' "Someone to Watch Over Me." "While I'n not a musicologist, I do appreciate classics like this one," Sulton said of the latter track. "I wrote [Adventures in Utopia's] 'Love Alone' while thinking of that golden era of songwriting. So whenever I heard this song, I always thought how great it would be to do a version myself." Another highlight on the 11-track album is the closing song, "Fade Away." The rich single tells a timeless story of "mistakes made, damage done and the feeling that the relationship is all but over — but then, by some divine intervention you get a second last chance," Sulton shared. The multi-talented artist plays guitar, bass, mandolin, piano, organ, and other instruments, and exhibits some of these talents on the song "God of Low" – on which he is the sole musician.

Eddie Martinez's drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor's office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez's drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs. In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a "drawing wall," wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist's incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center's forthcoming exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, will bring the drawing wall to the museum. The artist will paper the gallery with thousands of sketches that he will change throughout the exhibition's run. In addition, several large drawings and paintings will be hung on top of these sketches allowing viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez's practice.

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer - Metropolitan Museum of Art Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino ("the divine one") by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today. This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. Among the extraordinary international loans are the complete series of masterpiece drawings he created for his friend Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.

Video Installation by David Rokeby; San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazza. Curated by Pari Nadimi. ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems. In the last decade, his practice has expanded to included video, kinetic and static sculpture. His work has been performed and exhibited in shows across Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. Awards include the first BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award for Interactive Art in 2000, a 2002 Governor General's award in Visual and Media Arts and the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica for Interactive Art 2002. He was awarded the first Petro-Canada Award for Media Arts in 1988, the Prix Ars Electronica Award of Distinction for Interactive Art (Austria) in 1991 and 1997.

Roots of 'The Dinner Party': History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum Through March 04, 2018 - Prospect Heights

Roots of "The Dinner Party": History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago's evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making, and a testament to the power of historical revisionism. Chicago's ambitious research project combatted the absence of women from mainstream historical narratives and blazed the trail for feminist art historical methodologies in an era of social change. It also validated mediums traditionally considered the domain of women and domestic labor, as the artist studied and experimented with China painting, porcelain, and needlework. The exhibition presents rarely seen test plates, research documents, ephemera, notebooks, and preparatory drawings from 1971 through 1979 alongside The Dinner Party, encouraging exploration of its formal, conceptual, and material progress.

The park becomes a winter wonderland with an outdoor ice skating rink (free entry!), a European inspired open-air market for holiday shopping, rinkside dining, and even an observation deck full of games and art supplies.

"Vivian Reed, human dynamo at Feinstein's/54 Below… you must not miss this great artist. It is the best major artist's show I have seen this year!" -Joe Regan Jr., Theater Pizzazz BACK BY OVERWHELMING DEMAND! After her sell-out show packed Feinstein's/54 Below to the rafters a couple seasons back, multi-award-winning singer, actress and dancer Vivian Reed returns with a brand new show, celebrating the 100th year of Lena Horne.

Through selections from her critically acclaimed Broadway performance in Bubbling Brown Sugar, as well as from Three Mo' Divas, her concerts and international nightclub appearances, the two-time Tony Award nominee — who is the recipient of a Drama Desk Award, a Theatre World Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award, among others — pays tribute to the people who have had a profound effect on her career. Accompanied by two pianists, a bassist, a drummer and three background singers, her high-energy show also features special guests. It's an evening you'll never forget!

MoMA PS1 presents the first comprehensive retrospective of Carolee Schneemann, spanning the artist's prolific six-decade career. As one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century, Schneemann's pioneering investigations into subjectivity, the social construction of the female body, and the cultural biases of art history have had significant influence on subsequent generations of artists. Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting begins with rarely seen examples of the artist's early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into assemblages made in the 1960s, which integrated objects, mechanical elements, and modes of deconstruction. In the late 1960s Schneemann began positioning her own body within her work, performing the roles of "both image and image-maker." As a central protagonist of the New York downtown avant-garde community, she explored hybrid artistic forms culminating in experimental theater events. The exhibition considers Schneemann's oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition in New York focused on Glasgow-based artist Cathy Wilkes (b. 1966), in conjunction with the inaugural Maria Lassnig Prize. Since the start of her career in the 1990s, Wilkes has created sculptural tableaux that engage with the rituals of life. Regularly employing quotidian products and residual materials drawn from her domestic life, Wilkes's installations connect the banalities of daily existence to larger archetypes of birth, marriage, child-rearing, and death. This combination of the personal and universal parallels a meditation at the heart of her work, in which Wilkes's art enacts an exercise in empathy, exposing deeply felt subjective experiences to reach beyond herself while also insisting upon the fundamentally private nature of artmaking. Wilkes is the first artist to receive the Maria Lassnig Prize, a biennial award established by the Maria Lassnig Foundation in June 2016 to honor the achievements of mid-career artists. The Maria Lassnig Prize was originally envisioned by pioneering Austrian artist Maria Lassnig before her death in 2014 at the age of 94, at height of her artistic powers. Having achieved recognition only later in life, she hoped to encourage the efforts of fellow career artists not yet familiar to the public. In 2014, MoMA PS1 presented Maria Lassnig's first comprehensive American museum survey to universal acclaim.

Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence - New York Historical Society Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence showcases hand-drawn and engraved maps from the 18th and early 19th centuries that illuminate the tremendous changes—geographic, political, and economic—that occurred before, during, and just after the Revolutionary War. The exhibition features rarely displayed manuscripts and printed maps from New-York Historical's own premier collection, including the original manuscript surveys of Robert Erskine, Geographer and Surveyor General of the Continental Army, and his successor Simeon De Witt. Also on display will be John Jay's personal copy of John Mitchell's Map of the British and French Dominions in North America (1755) to which hand-drawn red lines representing proposed boundaries were added during the negotiations of the Treaty of Paris, 1782 - 1783. This exhibition was organized by the Norman B.

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Hotbed explores the vibrant political and artistic scene of Greenwich Village in the early 20th century, where men and women joined forces across the boundaries of class and race to fight for a better world. At the heart of the downtown radicals' crusade lay women's rights: to control their own bodies, to do meaningful work, and above all, to vote. Immersive installations and more than 100 artifacts and images—drawn from New-York Historical's archives and several private collections—bring to life the bohemian scene and its energetic activist spirit. The exhibition is curated by Joanna Scutts, Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's History, and Sarah Gordon, Senior Postdoctoral Marie Zimmermann Legacy Fellow in Women's History, under the direction of Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History at the New-York Historical Society, and is on view in the Joyce B. Cowin Women's History Gallery.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Highlighting lesser-known works by prominent artists and key works by some less familiar names, Artists at Mid to Late Career provides another view of the history of art over the last half century. All works are drawn from MoMA's collection, and includes examples by Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Maria Lassnig, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O'Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, and many others.

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

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

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

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

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

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