When not surfing the Australian waves, the musician Møme (aka Jérémy Souillart) likes nothing better than composing. He has converted his van into a studio-on-wheels and, driving from coast to coast, he composes as he goes. Jérémy was raised in Nice and his 'chillwave' sound is proving a great hit back in his native France. Influenced by the artists of the Australian Future Classic label such as Flume or Chet Faker, his EP Aloha states his attachment to Pop Electronic music as testifies its aerial and beat soul covered by the voice of the Australian singer Merryn Jeann. Before releasing his first EP (Eclipse, 2014), the 26-year-old musician used to play the guitar in a rock band. He still plays, though he has gravitated towards the computer- and synthesizer-produced software that inspired the expanding Møme project. The new sound lay behind the track 'Cyclope' on his second EP (Cosmopolitan, 2015) which along with the clip got him noticed by the musical press. After producing his EP Aloha, Møme drove to Australia in his van last November and met other producers, male and female singers who feature on his recordings. Far from his comfort zone in the huge country where Future Classic was born Møme found a solid background to compose.

My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Chmcl Str8jckt - Knitting Factory Brooklyn April 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

Originally formed in 1987 by Buzz McCoy(who had recently relocated from Boston) and Groovie Mann, the duo sought to create a worthy musical accompaniment that could be used as a soundtrack to trashy B-movies. The duo's initial project was to make a movie (in the style of Russ Meyer and John Waters) to be named "My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult." The movie never got off the ground, but McCoy and Mann used the aborted movie's title for the name of their just-formed group, as their over-the-top stage show was best described as "sensory overload". Signing on with Chicago's renowned industrial dance label Wax Trax!, the Thrill Kill Kult issued several releases between 1989 and 1991: a self-titled EP, plus the full-lengths I See Good Spirits and I See Bad Spirits, Kooler Than Jesus, Confessions of a Knife, and Sexplosion! By this time, the group had attracted the attention of Interscope Records, which signed up the Thrill Kill Kult and reissued Sexplosion!, which had spawned perhaps the group's best-known song, "Sex on Wheelz" (the track would also be featured in director Ralph Bakshi's animated movie Cool World. In 2004 the Ryko label acquired most of Wax Trax!'s releases, including early albums from the Kult. That same year they reissued the band's first three albums and released a new compilation, The Best of TKK, along with a set of remixes named Diamonds & Daggerz. In 2010 they introduced their own label Sleazbox with the album Death Threat plus the remix/re-recordings collection Sinister Whisperz: The Wax Trax Years. In addition to their own releases, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult has contributed tracks to several movie soundtracks, including Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls, Greg Araki's Nowhere, and the hit flick The Crow (in the latter of which the group made a cameo appearance); and over the years, has toured with such renowned (and similarly styled) bands as Siouxie and the Banshees, Lords of Acid, EMF, and Marilyn Manson.

Wednesdays at One: Chamber Ensembles - Alice Tully Hall, The Juilliard School April 18, 2018 - New York

Pianists from Juilliard's Collaborative Piano department perform sonata repertoire in partnership with student instrumentalists.

Our new album, You're Dreaming, didn't happen overnight. It is the culmination of several years of songwriting and the kindness of thousands of miles and friends. A cast of characters, experiences, and personal perspectives set in simple rhymes and sung in harmony to paint a picture in your mind. When my brother and I started making music as The Cactus Blossoms there wasn't a big plan. We cut our teeth performing some well known and obscure country songs that were popular or unpopular pre-1960, partly out of curiosity and deep appreciation, but mostly because it was fun. Early on, we were offered a residency at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minnesota, so we got a band together and it became our weekly "practice-in-public" where we would pull out every song we could think of, no matter how well we knew it. It was our first chance to play all night and do whatever we wanted. Over the course of our year and a half at the Turf Club our repertoire had snowballed into an amalgam of original songs and a bunch of gut wrenching, "tongue-in-cheek" heartbreakers, that were 30 years older than us. Not everyone could tell what was new and what was old, and it didn't really matter. They just seemed to enjoy it. That's how the wheel got going and gave the illusion of spin ning backwards. We weren't born in the wrong era. We just got into some music from a different era and happened to make it our own.

Red House Records artist Ray Bonneville is a poet of the demimonde who didn't write his first song until his early 40s, some 20 years after he started performing. But with a style that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois, this blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired "song and groove man," as he's been so aptly described, luckily found his rightful calling. Born in Quebec, his family moved to Boston when he was 12. He served a year in Vietnam as a Marine, struggled and overcame drug addiction, earned a pilot's license in Colorado, then moved to Alaska, then Seattle, and Paris and New Orleans. But it took a close call while piloting a seaplane across the Canadian wilderness to make him decide it was time to get busy writing songs - gritty narratives inspired by a lifetime of hard-won knowledge set against his gritty, soulful guitar and harmonica playing. He's since earned many accolades, including a Juno Award for his 1999 album, Gust of Wind. His post-Katrina ode, "I Am the Big Easy," earned the International Folk Alliance's 2009 Song of the Year Award, and in 2012, Bonneville won the solo/duet category in the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge. He has guested on albums by Mary Gauthier, Gurf Morlix, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie Hubbard and other prominent artists, and shared songwriting credits with Tim O'Brien, Phil Roy and Morlix, among others. Slaid Cleaves placed Bonneville's "Run Jolee Run" on his lauded 2009 album, Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away. Ray is touring in support of Easy Gone, his fourth album for Red House Records. The album takes listeners to some of the dark spaces and exotic places Bonneville has gone on his own travels. An Austin resident since 2006, Bonneville still puts the rhythms and soul of New Orleans into much of his music. His songs carry a groove and momentum that's uniquely his — and will always be a part of him, no matter where he roams.

At only 21 years old, Charlotte Cardin has already shown promise of being one of 2017's breakout songstresses. Her debut single, the minimal electro-jazz ballad "Big Boy," garnered instant online buzz. Since then, the young singer's career has been a series of milestones. Her long-awaited debut EP was released July 2016 and instantly jumped to number one on iTunes Canada. The success of the EP is being fueled by a 60-date Canadian tour which has so far included stops at the CBC Music festival, Osheaga, and le Festival d'e?te? de Que?bec (the latter of which saw her opening up for Sting and Peter Gabriel). By road-testing her material with her tight-knit three-piece band, Charlotte seems to have hit a sweet spot between the minimalism in the songs' arrangements and the larger-than-life quality of her live show.

Writing Introductions & Conclusions - John Jay College of Criminal Justice Through April 18, 2018 - New York

"Cleromancy" isn't a word one normally finds in rock lyrics. Then again, In Spades -- the forthcoming album by The Afghan Whigs, from which the new song "Oriole" hails -- is defined only by its own mystical inner logic. The term means to divine, in a supernatural manner, a prediction of destiny from the random casting of lots: the throwing of dice, picking a card from a deck. From its evocative cover art to the troubled spirits haunting its halls, In Spades casts a spell that challenges the listener to unpack its dark metaphors and spectral imagery. "It's a spooky record," notes Greg Dulli, Afghan Whigs' songwriter and frontman. "I like that it's veiled. It's not a concept album per se, but as I began to assemble it, I saw an arc and followed it. To me it's about memory -- in particular, how quickly life and memory can blur together." On the one hand, In Spades is as quintessentially Afghan Whigs as anything the group has ever done -- fulfilling its original mandate to explore the missing link between howling Midwestern punk like Die Kreuzen and Hüsker Dü, The Temptations' psychedelic soul symphonies, and the expansive hard rock tapestries of Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd. At the same time, this new record continues to push beyond anything in the Whigs' previous repertoire -- another trademark, along with the explosive group dynamic captured on the recording.

The Biography of Angela B. Moonlanding is a musical about a woman named Angela discovering her complicated origins. The show follows two narratives: Angela's musical past, and the non-musical present where Angela and her roommate, April, undergo existential tribulations. We witness Angela's birth and childhood as we learn that she was traded to her adopted mother in exchange for a couch full of cocaine. In the present day, dissatisfied with her life, Angela disappears. After April gets a letter from Angela's long lost birth mother, the two temporalities (and musical/dramatic structures) intersect, and we discover where Angela is and where she really came from.

Jaimoe's Jasssz Band (founding member of the Allman Brothers Band) - Iridium April 18, 2018 - New York

Legendary drummer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band play American music. They combine elements of Jazz, Blues, Rock-n-Roll, and R&B into a unique blend that captures the spirit and stirs the soul. Their repertoire ranges from new interpretations of classic tunes, as well as original songs that are classics in the making. Jaimoe's Jasssz Band features Jaimoe – drums, Junior Mack – guitar and vocals, Dave Stoltz – bass, Bruce Katz – keyboards, and some of the finest horn players of our time, including Paul Lieberman – sax, flute, and piccalo, Kris Jensen – sax and Reggie Pittman – trumpet. Jaimoe, man of many names, and one of the original six band members, has combined forces with fellow drummer and percussionist Butch Trucks in a million subtle, driving, playful, and energizing ways to keep the music on track and flowing. Jaimoe himself contributes the following biographical insights: This is Jaimoe. No, I did not play at Monterey. I played with Otis Redding 4/18/66 through 9/5/66 in the band that did "Otis – Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go". I joined that band a week after that record was recorded. A very good friend of mine, a very good sax player and a hell of an organizer, Donald "Cadillac" Henry, was a great reason for me getting that break and a lot of others, right up to the fact of the reason I was in Macon was because Donald told me to go to Macon. Phil Walden was putting a recording studio in Macon which was Capricorn Records. Phil Walden and Otis Redding had a company called Redwal Music.

PEN World Voices and the Nuyo Present: Ng?g? wa Thiong'o: Decolonizing the Mind - Nuyorican Poets Cafe April 18, 2018 - New York

In Wrestling with the Devil, the latest in his series of memoirs, Ng?g? wa Thiong'o writes about the year he spent imprisoned without charge by Kenya's President Daniel arap Moi. After his release in 1978, following a campaign by Amnesty International who had adopted him as Prisoner of Conscience, the artist was forced into exile and now lives in the United States. Ng?g? is a leading voice in the "decolonialization" discourse, writing of the need for Africans to "decolonize the mind" and to "resurrect the African memory." He now writes only in his native Gikuyu, which he then translates into English. A perennial favorite for the Nobel Prize and judged to be one of the world's greatest living writers, Ng?g? talks about the writing and resistance that has marked his life and enriched our literary universe.

She'll be speaking about her experiences in the workplace both as a woman and mother and will touch upon how she is able to empower herself and all women around her. She has been involved with the Working Mother magazine since 1978 when she played a pivotal role in launching a new magazine for a new market of young moms who wanted the joy of a family and the challenge of a career. Throughout the years, she has launched numerous key initiatives for women in the law, hourly workers, small business owners and top executive women and has helped corporations engage more deeply in the advancement of people of color, LGBTQ employees and people with disabilities. She has published a book, This Is How We Do It: The Working Mother's Manifesto, where she helps working moms to find joy in their busy lives and urges companies to support them with best practices and policies. Carol left her position at WWM in 2015 to co-found Executive Women for Hillary (now EW4Her), a national organization that gets professional women out of their offices and into the political fray on behalf of progressive candidates.

Bombazo Dance: Introduction to Afro-Caribbean Dance - Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture April 18, 2018 - Bronx

Slate's podcast miniseries Slow Burn has struck a chord. The story of Watergate, the scandal that brought down a president, feels exciting, timely, and relevant in a way few decades-old political episodes ever will. Since the launch of Episode 1 and its rapid rise to the top of the iTunes charts, the podcast has sparked intriguing conversations about the role of the media, Congress, and the public in watching and eventually addressing the corruption coming from the White House. In his reporting, host Leon Neyfakh talked to both prominent and inconspicuous actors who were involved in uncovering or reporting on Watergate. Now he'll lead a conversation with a group of those people and leading political journalists of today to discuss the enduring themes of the Watergate era. Join us for this special event featuring award-winning author Gail Sheehy, contributing editor at WIRED and cohost of Slate's Trumpcast Virginia Heffernan, and more to be announced soon.

Ian Hobson — Sound Impressions: The Piano Music of Debussy & Ravel - SubCulture April 18, 2018 - New York

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

Feeding the Apple: New York's Future Food Supply - Museum of the City of New York April 18, 2018 - Upper East Side

New York City is one of the world's great food cities, brimming with culinary creativity and cuisines from around the world. At the same time, over a million New Yorkers have inadequate access to fresh, healthy food, and New Yorkers send over 2 million tons of food waste to landfills each year, while climate change threatens our food supply and the political environment imperils many agriculture workers. How can we, as a city and as a world, transition to a more sustainable and equitable food system? What are the most far-reaching and provocative proposals for the future of food in New York? Dan Barber, chef and co-owner of two restaurants, Blue Hill in Manhattan's Greenwich Village and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, NY, joins New York Times Food reporter Julia Moskin for a conversation about how we can rethink what, and how, we eat. A food industry revolutionary, Barber most recently spearheaded a pop-up restaurant, wastED, where he and guest chefs from around the country served meals composed entirely of ingredients destined for the garbage. From seeds to soil health to stem-to-root eating, Barber and Moskin will discuss what kind of menu will meet the challenges of the future—and do it deliciously. About the Speakers: Dan Barber is the chef and co-owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and the author of The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food (2014, The Penguin Press). Appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the President's Council on Physical Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, Barber continued the work that he began with Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, bringing the principles of good farming directly to the table. Barber has received multiple James Beard awards and been featured in the Netflix documentary series Chef's Table. His restaurant, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, is currently ranked #11 in the world. Julia Moskin, a native New Yorker, has been a New York Times Food staff reporter since 2004. She reports news (startling readers with the fact that most sushi is frozen, not fresh), writes profiles, and spots trends (like ramen, funfetti, and Korean fried chicken, which she wrote about before any other U.S. journalist). Last year, she led the Food department's investigation into rampant sexual harassment at The Spotted Pig and other restaurants owned by Ken Friedman and the chef April Bloomfield. This is the fourth program in our new series, New York's Future in a Changing Climate, which explores the challenges and opportunities presented in the Museum's Future City Lab, the interactive third gallery in the New York at Its Core exhibition.

Library Discussion: Say Yes to Less - Getting to Zero Waste - Dag Hammarskjöld Library April 18, 2018 - New York

Learn more about reducing waste from global and local thought leaders! Hear inspiring ideas, get practical tips, and engage in a lively discussion on what we all can do to lessen the burden of waste on our environment. With presentations by Bea Johnson, author of "Zero Waste Home" who lives according to the 5R principle - Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot; Gregory Anderson, Chief of Staff at the New York City Department of Sanitation and responsible for its Zero Waste 2030 initiative; and Violaine Haeringer, Environmental Sustainability Manager at UN Headquarters and focal point for Greening the Blue, the UN system's collective effort to reduce its environmental footprint.

Originally formed in 1987 by Buzz McCoy(who had recently relocated from Boston) and Groovie Mann, the duo sought to create a worthy musical accompaniment that could be used as a soundtrack to trashy B-movies. The duo's initial project was to make a movie (in the style of Russ Meyer and John Waters) to be named "My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult." The movie never got off the ground, but McCoy and Mann used the aborted movie's title for the name of their just-formed group, as their over-the-top stage show was best described as "sensory overload". Signing on with Chicago's renowned industrial dance label Wax Trax!, the Thrill Kill Kult issued several releases between 1989 and 1991: a self-titled EP, plus the full-lengths I See Good Spirits and I See Bad Spirits, Kooler Than Jesus, Confessions of a Knife, and Sexplosion! By this time, the group had attracted the attention of Interscope Records, which signed up the Thrill Kill Kult and reissued Sexplosion!, which had spawned perhaps the group's best-known song, "Sex on Wheelz" (the track would also be featured in director Ralph Bakshi's animated movie Cool World. In 2004 the Ryko label acquired most of Wax Trax!'s releases, including early albums from the Kult. That same year they reissued the band's first three albums and released a new compilation, The Best of TKK, along with a set of remixes named Diamonds & Daggerz. In 2010 they introduced their own label Sleazbox with the album Death Threat plus the remix/re-recordings collection Sinister Whisperz: The Wax Trax Years. In addition to their own releases, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult has contributed tracks to several movie soundtracks, including Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls, Greg Araki's Nowhere, and the hit flick The Crow (in the latter of which the group made a cameo appearance); and over the years, has toured with such renowned (and similarly styled) bands as Siouxie and the Banshees, Lords of Acid, EMF, and Marilyn Manson.

Crowning Glory: Inside Britain's Royal Collection - The Met Fifth Avenue April 18, 2018 - Upper East Side

Kathryn Calley Galitz, art historian and Educator, The Met Art historian Kathryn Calley Galitz shares insights from her recent study of the paintings at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, focusing on King George IV and Queen Victoria as art patrons and tastemakers in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Britain. Works discussed in the series range from Renaissance masterpieces to Thomas Lawrence's Waterloo paintings and intimate portraits of the royal family by Edwin Henry Landseer and Franz Xaver Winterhalter.

Cost: Free and open to the public. Sponsored by: The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography is pleased to present visiting artist Elizabeth Atterbury. In sculpture, photography and installation, Elizabeth Atterbury constructs minimal objects that frame, intervene and alter space. Drawing on personal history, these objects are both familiar and surprising – the scale and finish shifts any reference to utility and context. Oversized gloves, an abstract wavey length of wood, a tennis court hung on the wall are all given the utmost care and significance. Atterbury's background in photography is clear, as one moves through her work, individual objects alter in their relationship to the whole, creating new associations. Photographs repeat form and palatte of the objects, emphazing the frame once again. From abstracted photographs of sand, cut metal and cardboard, Atterbury's work has moved back into the three dimensional world, bringing with it a complicated, beautiful simplicity. Elizabeth Atterbury (b. 1982, West Palm Beach, FL) received her BA from Hampshire College and her MFA from MassArt. Recent solo exhibitions include Mrs., New York; Document, Chicago; The Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville; kijidome, Boston. She has been included in group exhibitions at Et. al, San Francisco; Western Exhibitions, Chicago; TSA, Brooklyn; Bodega, Philadelphia/New York; KANSAS, New York; and The ICA at Maine College of Art, Portland, among others. Atterbury is represented by Mrs. in New York

Please share and invite others to an unforgettable evening of art in action.

Bernstein's Candide, based on Voltaire's satirical tale, is a superb fusion of Broadway flash and operatic virtuosity. Its quicksilver overture, dazzling coloratura soprano aria "Glitter and Be Gay," sardonic "Auto-da-fé" chorus, and deeply moving "Make Our Garden Grow" finale are highlights of an ebullient and irresistible work. Performed in concert by first-rate guest artists and Orchestra of St. Luke's, Candide is an ideal celebration of the Bernstein centenary.

For years, Joshua Hedley has been making a name for himself as Nashville's right hand man. Known as the ?mayor of lower Broadway? by collaborators and comrades, Hedley is a fixture at Robert's Western World, where he plays for tips with his band the Hedliners. The multi-talented singer-songwriter has played fiddle with Justin Townes Earle, Robert Ellis and Jonny Fritz. Now Music City's favorite son is breaking out on his own. As part of East Nashville's close-knit brigade of musicians, Hedley has no shortage of support from his peers. He's featured prominently in the 2015 documentary film Heartworn Highways Revisited, a follow up to the seminal 1976 cult classic music documentary about the 1970s Nashville songwriting community led by Guy and Susanna Clark. Hedley's soaring, velvet voice and jukebox-ready songs are 60s-era solid country gold. Unlike several of his peers, Hedley's not trying to put a new spin on an old sound. Joshua Hedley's country music is your grandfather's country music and it's all the better for it.

21 and over MOTEL RADIO Motel Radio is an indie rock band hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana.

In Broad Daylight: The Secret Procedures behind the Holocaust by Bullets - Albertine April 18, 2018 - New York

In The Holocaust by Bullets, Father Patrick Desbois documented for the first time the murder of 1.5 million Jews in Ukraine during World War II, based on wartime documents, interviews with locals, and the application of modern forensic practices on long-hidden gravesites. Nearly a decade of further work later, Father Desbois, Founder and President of Yahad-In Unum, has assembled in his new book, In Broad Daylight: The Secret Procedures behind the Holocaust by Bullets, a chilling account of how, concretely, these events took place in village after village, from the selection of the date to the twenty-four-hour period in which the mass murders unfolded. Today, such groups as ISIS put into practice the Nazis' lessons on making genocide efficient. Father Patrick Desbois is a Catholic priest, President of Yahad – In Unum, a global humanitarian organization he founded in 2004 dedicated to identifying and commemorating the sites of Jewish and Roma mass executions in Eastern Europe during World War II. Father Desbois has devoted his life to researching the Holocaust, fighting anti-Semitism, and furthering relations between Catholics and Jews.

David Webber's The Rise of the Working-Class Shareholder: Labor's Last Best Weapon (Harvard University Press; April 2, 2018), tells the story of a group of labor activists who have challenged corporations, hedge funds, and private equity funds using the enormous power vested in worker pension funds. At a time when traditional 20th century tools like strikes have increasingly failed workers, these activists have figured out how to use the trillions of dollars in worker retirement funds as a working class weapon.

Federico García Lorca's tragedy that unfolds in a cloistered world of women in 1930s Spain. "Hatred, jealousy and despair come to life, almost as characters in their own right, in the Repertorio Español's Spanish-language production of 'La casa de Bernarda Alba'… García Lorca's grim satisfaction in exposing the pretensions, self-deceits and destructive willfulness of Bernarda Alba and her five daughters in a world of women who are all victims is almost palpable." – The New York Times

The Dizzy Gillespie Afro Cuban All-Star Experience - Blue Note Jazz Club Through April 18, 2018 - New York

Dizzy Gillespie was introduced to Chano Pozo in 1947 by Mario Bauza. Both became life-long friends and Dizzy and Chano Pozo developed Afro-Cuban jazz, which became extremely successful, attracting people to dance to its unique rhythms. Gillespie's most famous contributions to Afro-Cuban music are the compositions "Manteca" and "Tin Tin Deo". Machito's Afro Cubans (formed in 1940), the creators of Cu-Bop, were a major influence on musicians like Dizzy Gillespie. Dizzy loved it so much, that in 1975, he invited Machito's son, Mario Grillo or Machito Jr., to join Dizzy's band for the recording of 'Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods'. So it only makes sense to have him join the Dizzy Gillespie (TM) Afro Cuban Experience, under the direction of John Lee, Dizzy's long-time bassist.

Hélène Grimaud plays Ravel - Carnegie Hall, Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage April 18, 2018 - New York

The centerpiece of the largely Neo-classical program selected by Pablo Heras-Casado is the much-loved Ravel Piano Concerto in G Major, a brilliant, exuberant work influenced as much by Mozart and Saint-Saëns as by American jazz. It will be performed by one of today's most-celebrated pianists, Hélène Grimaud. Igor Stravinsky's two suites for small orchestra (written in 1921 and 1925) were derived from two sets of piano duets he had composed as study pieces for young musicians. The short, four-movement Suite No. 1 combines popular elements, offbeat rhythms, and ironic twists—hallmarks of the composer's emerging Neo-Classical period. Haydn was not only an influence on his immediate successors but to later composers including 20th-century masters working in the Neo-classical style. Pondering what a symphony in the style of Haydn would sound like if composed in 1917, Prokofiev wrote the effervescent "Classical" symphony—given its name by the composer himself. His brilliant creation emulates Haydn's scoring and tone, but is firmly-rooted in the 20th century. Bustling outer movements frame a sweet Larghetto followed by the graceful Gavotto, one of Prokofiev's favorite forms. Haydn has been called the father of the symphony and the inventive "Drumroll," premiered in 1795—the eleventh of twelve he composed in London—is one of his finest and one of the pieces that, along with works of Mozart, might have inspired Prokofiev's effervescent "Classical" symphony.

Rich Stein attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where he studied West African drumming with Joe Galeota and contemporary and traditional percussion styles with Jamey Haddad, as well as focusing on frame drumming. Rich's training also extended to Ghana, West Africa, where he studied Ewe, Ga, and Dagomba drumming with Emmanuel Agbeli, Shamsudin Adeji, and Alhaji Abubakari Lunna. He also had an extended tour in India, which culminated in a period of study with the Carnatic music master Karaikudi R. Mani. Rich has performed with Richard Stoltzman, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and other notable artists.

When calamity strikes the Loose Caboose diner, the Hell's Kitchenettes band together to save the joint and put on a hell of a show at the same time! Based on an original concept from LaMasa, Mills, and Darius Rose (Cox), this hilarious musical comedy features songs from the Andrews Sisters, and new harmonic takes on musical theater and hit pop tunes. It is probably unlike any drag show you've seen before!

This event is 21 and over "The Spadtastics" is a terrible name for a Grateful Dead cover band. So they make up for it by playing their collective asses off—creating lysergic-laced interstellar jams that will make you question reality and quit your day job. They reach into your solar plexus, tear out your heart, and beat it with mallets made of cocobolo, milled steel, and peonies, and shove it back in at the end of the set. You don't just leave a Spadtastics show having been entertained; you are made a better, more compassionate human being. How do the Spadtastics achieve such mind-blowing Grateful-Dead-covering awesomeness? Well, they're veterans of locally legendary bands such as MILC, Nick the Fin, Magic Garden, the Well, the Tasteful Nudes, Uncle John's Touch of Grey Band (feat. Casey Jones), and Steppenwolf. They've been playing this music since the peak of Ronald Reagan era and have only gotten younger since. Now, they are certified Diamond Platinum Status Masters of the Dead—and will challenge any Podunk band that thinks they're better to a Help>Slip>Franklin's duel at 20 paces. Just try us! If you're brave enough, you can check out the Spadtastics on this thing they invented during a particularly long and experimental Dark Star jam. It's called "the Internet."

Special Birthday Celebration for the Legendary Voodoo Ray - Le Poisson Rouge April 18, 2018 - West Village

The Biography of Angela B. Moonlanding is a musical about a woman named Angela discovering her complicated origins. The show follows two narratives: Angela's musical past, and the non-musical present where Angela and her roommate, April, undergo existential tribulations. We witness Angela's birth and childhood as we learn that she was traded to her adopted mother in exchange for a couch full of cocaine. In the present day, dissatisfied with her life, Angela disappears. After April gets a letter from Angela's long lost birth mother, the two temporalities (and musical/dramatic structures) intersect, and we discover where Angela is and where she really came from.

Festival of Praise Presents Texture of a Man Ft. Fred Hammond - NYCB Theatre at Westbury April 18, 2018 - Westbury

We all know Argentinean sensations like Julio Cortázar, Samanta Schweblin, and César Aira. And in recent years, writers like Silvina Ocampo and Antonio di Benedetto have slowly begun to get their due. But many other twentieth-century greats—including Osvaldo Lamborghini, Norah Lange, and Sara Gallardo—continue to languish in the shadows. Join acclaimed Argentinean writer Sergio Chejfec, renowned translators Esther Allen, Heather Cleary, and Charlotte Whittle and esteemed editor Edwin Frank to discuss the legendary Argentinean writers you should be reading but probably aren't. Moderated by Words Without Borders editor Eric M. B. Becker.

General Admission. For dinner before the show, please call 212-255-4544. Please let host know you're coming for the show and would like to be sat in club before show.

Red House Records artist Ray Bonneville is a poet of the demimonde who didn't write his first song until his early 40s, some 20 years after he started performing. But with a style that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois, this blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired "song and groove man," as he's been so aptly described, luckily found his rightful calling. Born in Quebec, his family moved to Boston when he was 12. He served a year in Vietnam as a Marine, struggled and overcame drug addiction, earned a pilot's license in Colorado, then moved to Alaska, then Seattle, and Paris and New Orleans. But it took a close call while piloting a seaplane across the Canadian wilderness to make him decide it was time to get busy writing songs - gritty narratives inspired by a lifetime of hard-won knowledge set against his gritty, soulful guitar and harmonica playing. He's since earned many accolades, including a Juno Award for his 1999 album, Gust of Wind. His post-Katrina ode, "I Am the Big Easy," earned the International Folk Alliance's 2009 Song of the Year Award, and in 2012, Bonneville won the solo/duet category in the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge. He has guested on albums by Mary Gauthier, Gurf Morlix, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie Hubbard and other prominent artists, and shared songwriting credits with Tim O'Brien, Phil Roy and Morlix, among others. Slaid Cleaves placed Bonneville's "Run Jolee Run" on his lauded 2009 album, Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away. Ray is touring in support of Easy Gone, his fourth album for Red House Records. The album takes listeners to some of the dark spaces and exotic places Bonneville has gone on his own travels. An Austin resident since 2006, Bonneville still puts the rhythms and soul of New Orleans into much of his music. His songs carry a groove and momentum that's uniquely his — and will always be a part of him, no matter where he roams.

Jackie Venson's style is as honest as it is advanced, leaving the most technically skilled in awe, and the casual listener inspired. Venson writes, sings, and plays with a vulnerability that leaves her soul bare to the audience, and they love her for it. With virtuoso chops, genuine lyrical content, and catchy melodies, she refuses to fit into any genre, but rather is a master of all genres.

On its 70th birthday, Israel is stronger than it has ever been. The embattled yet determined nation founded on May 15, 1948, has become a robust military, economic and technological power, enjoying sustained prosperity. But today, Israel faces new existential challenges: the danger of losing its Jewish majority (due to its continuing rule over the Palestinians), the danger of losing its democratic identity (due to the rise of nationalist and religious extremism) and the danger of losing the support of the Jewish diaspora (due to its changing character).

Bernstein's Candide, based on Voltaire's satirical tale, is a superb fusion of Broadway flash and operatic virtuosity. Its quicksilver overture, dazzling coloratura soprano aria "Glitter and Be Gay," sardonic "Auto-da-fé" chorus, and deeply moving "Make Our Garden Grow" finale are highlights of an ebullient and irresistible work. Performed in concert by first-rate guest artists and the Orchestra of St. Luke's, Candide is an ideal celebration of the Bernstein centenary.

g/leaning: assemblage, quotation, intertextuality with Emily Skillings Emily Skillings - Poets House April 18, 2018 - New York

In her 2012 essay "A Sort of Leaning Against," Maggie Nelson writes: "For a long time, I worried there was something wrong with me as a writer, because I leaned so heavily on the thinking and writing of others. And further, that instead of wanting to hide that leaning, my impulse has often been to showcase it, to make this thinking-with-others, this weaving of mine and others' words, part of the texture of my writing." Over the course of this six-week workshop, we will investigate this ethics of interdependence or "mutual aid" in writing. What happens when we make visible our attachments, associations, and connections—both critical, aesthetic, and sensory? This course will invite poets to engage the visual art practices of collage and assemblage, as well as list-making, quotation, and archival/ experiential research. Together we will collect the language and images that we encounter in our daily lives to make dynamic new writings that disturb the notion that when we write we are writing alone. Students will keep visual notebooks/scrapbooks and respond to weekly prompts. We will consult the projects and process(es) of artists, filmmakers, and writers, including Susan Howe, Douglas Kearney, Sei Sh?nagon, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, John Ashbery, Muriel Rukeyser, Claudia Rankine, John Beer, Bernadette Mayer, Charles Baudelaire, Maggie Nelson, and Agnes Varda.

Jazz with new roots Courage to stand on the edge The attitude of a garage band Just three individuals, just a trio, just another jazz band which surprises constantly.

Rodriguez, the legendary singer/songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist. He began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s, as the city suffered post-industrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact (1969) and Coming from Reality (1971), both of which went unnoticed in the U.S. and eventually turning Rodriguez’s efforts elsewhere. It wasn’t until the 1990s that Rodriguez gained his popularity from South African fans who sought him out and leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar Award-winning documentary “Searching for Sugar Man,” which has given Rodriguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. with his music and story now reaching audiences worldwide. Rodriguez now tours extensively in South Africa, Australia, Europe, Canada, and the U.S.

Eric's musical ventures began at a young age listening to his parent's vinyl collection and mimicking what he heard on the family's upright piano. Without realizing it, he was honing his skills as he worked out renditions of Elton John, Beatles, and CCR tunes. His best friend Jake was in a very musical family that encouraged him and helped him get involved in talent shows which would forever put the performance bug in Eric. In high school, he was involved in choir and even a country band for a short time giving him a reason to start dabbling in songwriting. Through various jobs and relationships Eric would find himself moving between several major cities, continuing to build his song catalog as he went. Finally, in 2010 while living in New York City he began to assemble a band which would go on to be called Rovnik. Together they played many of the cities legendary venues including: The Bitter End, Cafe Wha, The Delancey, Sullivan Hall, Arlene's Grocery, Groove, The National Underground, Kenny's Castaways, Spike Hill, Glasslands, Fontana's, and many more.

Buffalo: Build Relationships & Manage Conflict In The Workplace - University at Buffalo April 18, 2018 - New York

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

Guitarist Terry Clark, vocalist Barry Privett, bassist Jordan Medas, guitarist Carter Gravatt, and drummer Scott Milstead built up a considerable following and were soon releasing albums through their own label. Meander appeared in 1996, with Shadows in the Banquet Hall and Ether-Electrified Porch Music following in quick succession. In 2001, Carbon Leaf debuted a more mature sound with the album Echo Echo and won a Coca-Cola-sponsored unsigned band contest that landed them a performance on the American Music Awards. By this point, Carbon Leaf was also regularly opening shows for adult alternative-friendly acts like DMB, John Mayer, Guster, and David Gray, and the band documented their frequent and vibrant live shows with the 2002 double live set 5 Alive! Indian Summer appeared in 2004. Issued through Vanguard, it was Carbon Leaf's first recording for any label other than their own, and the strongest example yet of their polite, astute, and engaging sound. It was followed in 2006 by Love Loss Hope Repeat. ~ Johnny Loftus

Cbe Seminar - Simulation Design Of Interfaces Through Shape And Chemistry - University at Buffalo April 18, 2018 - New York

The patterning of interfaces, both chemical and structural, directs an enormous range of thermodynamic and dynamic properties of the fluids that meet them. Here, we present two examples where molecular simulations allow systematic charting of the effects of different interfacial configurations, which in turn offers design principles for engineering desired structures and behaviors. In the first, we examine a route to chiral surfaces through the self-assembly of achiral, quasi-2D colloidal particles of tunable shapes. We show that a surprisingly simple mechanism, based only on excluded volume interactions, can drive achiral particles into chiral materials. The mechanism quantitatively explains recent experimental results, predicts new chiral-prone shapes, and suggests a way that chiral structures might emerge in nature. In the second part, we show that precise hydrophobic/hydrophilic chemical patterning on a variety of solid surfaces provides an important way to control the dynamic behavior of adjacent water. We develop a novel genetic optimization algorithm, coupled to iterative molecular dynamic simulations, that designs the arrangement of surface groups so as to minimize or maximize the diffusion nearby water. Surprisingly, the algorithm uncovers novel surface designs that produce a wide range of dynamics for a given constant average surface hydrophobicity fraction. We provide a molecular-thermodynamic interpretation of these results using water structural order parameters.

There is no stopping Dweezil Zappa from continuing his mission to unlock the mysteries held within the superabundance of Frank Zappa's iconic music. For over a decade, the renowned guitarist has been honoring his father by touring the world with his Grammy-winning project, now named Dweezil Zappa. Dweezil's 12th annual tour is called "Choice Cuts!" and he has curated an all-new show filled with some of Frank Zappa's boldest compositions, or as Dweezil says, "A collection of the meatiest tracks," with which he plans to satiate the appetite of Zappa fans, old and new. With blistering instrumental compositions spanning as many decades as time signatures, Zappa and his band will whip up doo-wop and dada accented with funk and blues, then scramble back and forth through late 60's, and mid-70's fan favorites. They will also pulsate forward into the vortex of Frank Zappa's classical oeuvre, for what Dweezil describes as a "protein enriched program designed to create new awareness of the depth and variety of my dad's music."

"Rock 'n' roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that it's remarkable the two don't fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers." – The New York Times.Discovered by legendary record executive Clive Davis, vocalist, songwriter, and saxophonist Curtis Stigers debut album sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide on the strength of self-penned hit singles like "I Wonder Why," "You're All That Matters to Me," and "Never Saw a Miracle." A year later, Stigers cover of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understanding" for The Bodyguard Soundtrack sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Further collaborations with Carole King, Al Green, Shawn Colvin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart — as well as multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, The Today Show, etc. — put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. With One More for the Road, and Hooray For Love, his latest releases for the Concord Jazz label, Stigers continues to fulfill a promise made to a younger version of himself: a commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook.

Enriching Interpretation of Patient-Reported Outcomes - University at Buffalo April 19, 2018 - New York

A patient-reported outcome is any report on the status of a patient's health condition that comes directly from the patient. Clear and meaningful interpretation of patient-reported outcome scores are fundamental to their use as they can be valuable in designing studies, evaluating interventions, educating consumers, and informing health policy makers involved with regulatory, reimbursement, and advisory agencies. Interpretation of patient-reported outcome scores, however, is often not well understood because of insufficient data or lack of experience or clinical understanding to draw from. This presentation provides an update review on two broad approaches – anchor-based and distributed-based – aimed at enriching the understanding and meaning of patient-reported outcome scores. Anchor-based approaches use a measure (external to the targeted patient-reported outcome of interest) that is well interpretable and correlated with the targeted patient-reported outcome. Examples include percentages based on thresholds, criterion-group interpretation, content-based interpretation, and clinical important difference. Distributed-based approaches rely strictly on the distribution of the data. Examples include effect size, probability of relative benefit, and cumulative distribution functions. Applications are based on real-life and simulated examples.

Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald sang to express themselves, for sheer joy, and to pay the rent. Both discovered in the early 1930's, Holiday, nicknamed Lady Day, and Fitzgerald, The Lady of Swing had distinct vocal styles but their personal lives unfolded in very different ways. Holiday was as famous for her music as she was for her tragic life, dying prematurely at the age of 44. Fitzgerald famously beat a disadvantaged childhood and troubled teenage years to become a 13-time Grammy Award-winner. Yet, "they complete each other somehow, like the two faces of Janus" (The New York Times). Christine Tobin, a devotee of Billie Holiday, and charismatic jazz vocalist Roseanna Vitro, a longtime fan of Ella Fitzgerald, will pay tribute to these mothers of jazz by singing a special selection from their repertoire. Vitro will be accompanied by pianist and musical partner Mark Soskin along with other fine guest musicians, including Peter Brendler on double bass and David Mason on drums. The concert will include rare film footage.

In recent decades, many countries have succumbed to autocracy or outright tyranny, but in every instance the voices of the people have risen to protest and resist. Those voices are often, powerfully, those of writers whose special gifts articulate the pain and rage of oppressed populations. Writers from eight countries that have suffered, or still suffer, from tyranny and oppression speak to the pain of what happened in their homelands. Join us for an evening of solidarity.

Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive tenor saxophone sounds in jazz. Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, Sanders' sound can be as raw and abrasive as it is possible for a saxophonist to produce. Yet, Sanders is highly regarded to the point of reverence by a great many jazz fans. Although he made his name with expressionistic, nearly anarchic free jazz in John Coltrane's late ensembles of the mid-'60s, Sanders' later music is guided by more graceful concerns. The hallmarks of Sanders' playing at that time were naked aggression and unrestrained passion. In the years after Coltrane's death, however, Sanders explored other, somewhat gentler and perhaps more cerebral avenues — without, it should be added, sacrificing any of the intensity that defined his work as an apprentice to Coltrane. Pharoah Sanders (his given name, Ferrell Sanders) was born into a musical family. Sanders' early favorites included Harold Land, James Moody, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, and John Coltrane. Known in the San Francisco Bay Area as "Little Rock," Sanders soon began playing bebop, rhythm & blues, and free jazz with many of the region's finest musicians, including fellow saxophonists Dewey Redman and Sonny Simmons, as well as pianist Ed Kelly and drummer Smiley Winters. In 1961, Sanders moved to New York, where he struggled. Unable to make a living with his music, Sanders took to pawning his horn, working non-musical jobs, and sometimes sleeping on the subway. During this period he played with a number of free jazz luminaries, including Sun Ra, Don Cherry, and Billy Higgins.

On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words "PARANOID" and "BLACK SABBATH". For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.

Richie Kotzen has never been an artist known for playing by the rules. And for this ever-adventurous triple-threat songwriter/guitarist/vocalist, that meant putting on the brakes after a nonstop flurry of band-related activity in order to refuel the creative process for the ten heartfelt and hard-hitting songs that comprise his vibrant new solo album, Salting Earth, out April 14 via his own custom label, Headroom-Inc. In other words, Kotzen tossed convention on its ear by actually taking one step back in order to move two steps forward.

On Lost In New York, the new full-length album from producer/singer-songwriter/DJ Penguin Prison (aka Christopher Glover) the hustle and bustle of the city comes alive. From the vintage glam of NYC's storied disco heyday, all the way through to the bohemian rhapsody of modern Brooklyn, Lost In New York is a cultural time-capsule dedicated to the greatest city on the planet as told via Glover's intimate storytelling and personal brand of electropop. The presence and energy of the city are undeniable on Lost In New York, Glover's love letter to his home, his muse, and the main character in his album's story arch. But bubbling beneath the surface of this urban romance is the sense of bewilderment and disorientation that even native New Yorkers sometimes feel.

Venue: Cabaret Restaurant, 490 Pearl Street, Buffalo, NY Great Books: on Race (In America), a Reading & Discussion Program at Desmond Fish Library - Desmond Fish Library April 19, 2018 - Garrison

Great Books: On Race (in America) is a multigenerational series focused on 6 notable works of literature concerning the idea of race.

Preoccupations' songs have always worked through themes of creation, destruction, and futility, and they've always done it with singular post-punk grit. The textures are evocative and razorsharp. The wire is always a live one. But while that darker side may have been well-explored, that's not quite the same as it being fully, intensely lived. This time it was, and the result is 'New Material', a collection that broadens and deepens Preoccupations to a true mastery of their sound. In it lies the difference between witnessing a car crash and crashing your own, between jumping into an ocean and starting to swallow the water. "It's an ode to depression,' singer Matt Flegel says plainly. "To depression and self-sabotage, and looking inward at yourself with extreme hatred." Typically resilient, the months leading up to recording 'New Material' brought a new order of magnitude to feelings that had been creeping up on Flegel for some time. He'd written bits and pieces of lyrics through the course of it, small snippets he hadn't assigned to any one thought or feeling but were emblematic of a deeper issue, something germinating that was dense and numb and fully unshakeable. As the band began writing music, that process gave shape to the sheer tonnage of what he'd been carrying. With virtually nothing written or demoed before the band sat down together, the process was more collaborative than before. It was almost architectural, building some things up, tearing others down to the beams, sitting down and writing songs not knowing what they were about. But for Flegel, it led to a reckoning. "Finishing 'Espionage' was when I realized," says Flegel. "I looked at the rest of the lyrics and realized the magnitude of what was wrong." 'New Material' builds a world for that feeling, playing through its layers and complexities while hiding almost nothing. That inscrutable side is part of the magic, here, and a necessary counterweight to the straight-jab clarity of Flegel's lyrics. You can deep-dive the lyrics or zone into a riff; you can face it or you can get lost in it. "My ultimate goal would be to make a record where nobody knows what instrument is playing ever," says multi-instrumentalist Scott Munro, "and I think we've come closer than ever, here. It shouldn't sound robotic — it should sound human, like people playing instruments. It's just maybe no one knows what they are." Opener "Espionage" lives up to Munro's goals, kicking off with a clattering, rhythmic echo that gives way to sprinting percussion and a melody in the orbit of Manchester's classics. "Manipulation" explores the futility of going through the motions, balancing a droney, minimal march with a thunder roll that brings it to the brink, and to the doomed romantic declaration, "please don't remember me like I'll always remember you." "Disarray" bursts up like a blackened confetti cannon, the song's undeniably bright melody dancing over a refrain of "disarray, disarray, disarray" and literally nothing else. "A lot of this is about futility," he says, "trying to find something where there's nothing to be found." That hunt turns into a search-and destroy mission on "Decompose", a tense, speedy, "blow yourself up and start again" type of song, the very picture of creation and destruction, as Flegel writes "for better or worse, we are cursed in the ways that we tend to be." And while calling an album 'New Material' might seem like a smartass move, the truth is it's as matter-of-fact a title as Espionage, Disarray, or anything else on the record. Why fight that? If the through-line unifying Preoccupations' work is a furious, almost punishing cyclical quality, 'New Material' does offer some relief. "This is somehow the most uptempo thing we've ever done," observes Flegel. That propulsive, itchy quality rescues 'New Material' from the proverbial bottom of the pit. To write these songs is to force oneself to reignite, to play them is to stand up and reengage. Closer "Compliance" may not seem revelatory on first listen, but it is deeply elemental, a crucial finale and the band's first standalone instrumental. Original versions were built to death, reexamined and re-destroyed until they landed on just two chords — something simple, fundamental — and resolved to make meaning out of that, to show instead of tell. Flegel acknowledges it is more affecting to him than any other song on the record. It's not redemption, more like a forced reprieve.

The Biography of Angela B. Moonlanding is a musical about a woman named Angela discovering her complicated origins. The show follows two narratives: Angela's musical past, and the non-musical present where Angela and her roommate, April, undergo existential tribulations. We witness Angela's birth and childhood as we learn that she was traded to her adopted mother in exchange for a couch full of cocaine. In the present day, dissatisfied with her life, Angela disappears. After April gets a letter from Angela's long lost birth mother, the two temporalities (and musical/dramatic structures) intersect, and we discover where Angela is and where she really came from.

The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime's music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime's essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does.

Leslie Jamison explores addiction in The Recovering, her new work of nonfiction.

Gregory Pardlo, who won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 2015, now publishes the memoir Air Traffic, an ode to his father, to fatherhood and to family ties.

Every time The Mammals take the stage there is something real at stake. Maybe it's the risk-hungry spirit that the band's songwriters Mike Merenda & Ruth Ungar adopted thru their youthful theater training, or maybe it's that fiercely authentic mindset learned from their elders. This folk music is not about suspenders & whiskey, The Mammals come to connect timid generations one joyful show at a time. "A string band at the core, The Mammals augment their sound with drums and electric guitar to create a collectively harmonized howl as thrilling and rocking as any band currently subverting folk traditions" (No Depression).

MADmakes: National School Walkout - Banner-Making Workshop with Emily Oliveira - The Museum of Arts and Design April 19, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Are you planning to participate in the National School Walkout on April 20th? Join the museum the night before to make a reusable banner, pin, or patch for the walkout with textile artist Emily Oliveira. All materials will be provided, and all teens and their allies are welcome. Emily Oliveira works in traditionally domestic textile and decorative materials, scrambling the imagery to explore and perform queer, utopian futurity. During her tenure as an artist in residence at MAD, Oliveira will create a series of hand-embroidered, sequined banners, evoking Latin American and Catholic devotional textiles, to examine the labor of grief and the language of queer grieving on both personal and political scales. What is National School Walkout? An initiative of the student-led movement for gun control, the National School Walkout calls for high school students to walk out on April 20, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting, from at 10am local time until the end of the school day. The walkout encourages students to stay on campus in a common space for 17 minutes of silence in honor of the 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and then to participate in an open mic.

The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime's music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime's essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does.For nearly a decade now, Bumpin Uglies have been playing their brand of groove-heavy jams – a curiously fun mix of ska, Reggae and good ole' punk rock – all while putting strong lyrics at the forefront of the music. It's a formula that quickly took them from local favorites, playing around Annapolis, to a national stage. With a wildly infectious sound, tattoo-worthy lyrics and an itch to take their music to the masses, the band piled into the van years ago and have rarely seen home since. The Bumpin Uglies' origin story begins with singer/guitarist Brandon Hardesty playing open mics around Maryland. He met bassist Dave Wolf not too long after and Bumpin Uglies was born. With a proper set of wheels and TJ Haslett on drums, they went off to spread their music across the country like modern day Johnny Appleseeds. The group recently added Chad Wright on keyboards, expanding on their sound. Raised on everything from Bad Religion and The Beach Boys to Sublime and Reel Big Fish, Bumpin Uglies have managed to take inspiration from some of the best out there, run it through their own distinctive filter and end up with a truly original take on the various genres creating an original hybrid. With a unique sound that's nearly impossible to ignore, the band has gotten everyone from dreadlocked kids to PBR-fueled tattooed punks moving their heads to their music at festivals and on headlining tours across the country. When they aren't on the road, they've been camped in the studio, churning out three full lengths, two EPs and a live record. Their latest, 2016's Keep It Together came out on Right Coast Records and is proof that the band has found their groove. The album consists of a dozen stand-out tracks, any one of which could be considered instant classics for the band. They're already at work on the follow up, but true to their rep as being on the never-ending tour, chances are they'll be coming to a venue near you soon.

On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words "PARANOID" and "BLACK SABBATH". For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.

They come from the remote and tiny country of Finland, but the reach of their music has proven to be worldwide. Performing rootsy yet sophisticated blend of Nordic tradition and Americana, Frigg have won the hearts of folk music and world music aficionados alike, keeping the audience smiling, nodding and dancing on their lively gigs. They call their style 'nordgrass' which tells about the deep roots of their music. The 7-piece group have brought their fast and furious fiddles to way more than 500 gigs. Tours in North America, Australia, Japan, Europe and the UK, appearances on major festivals such as Chicago World Music Festival, Celtic Connections, Glatt & Verkehrt, WOMADelaide, Rudolstadt Festival, and Rainforest World Music Festival, to name just a few. The living tradition aside, the second cornerstone of Frigg's music is innovation. Frigg has absorbed melodies and rhythms from various world music styles such as bluegrass, Celtic and Balkan, among others. All the musicians of the septet have studied in top-notch music universities like the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, quaranteing virtuoso and effortless mastering of their instruments. Frigg are joyous, energetic, and dynamic live set, and continue to pass the tradition at workshops and master classes for various target groups.

Cost: FREE Sponsored by: Sculpture Dimensional Studies, National Casting Center Foundry Rian Kerrane will speak about her work, she will be visiting Alfred for a three week artist in residence at the National Casting Center where she will be producing work in Cast Iron and Glass. Rian Kerrane conceptually classifies her creative work as the Regarding-Self series and The Weight of It All, two streams of thought where she applies cast and fabricated sculpture, site specificity, installation and printmaking as methodologies examining these poetic themes. Her attraction to well-used artifacts stems from the moving individuality that evokes the situation of the individual in a homogenizing industrial/consumer society. Any object or substance can become sculptural material. Kerrane deliberately incorporates commonplace or industrial objects alongside highbrow traditional art materials. Cultural conformity shifts its familiar looks and feels as markets and fashions evolve, and reflection on the tropes of another time's products and packaging sheds light on our own situation. For her the studio and gallery are a laboratory for a kind of pseudo-science and a physicalized celebration and critique of late modern culture. Born in Galway, Ireland Kerrane received her BA in Fine Arts Degree from the University of Ulster at Belfast before migrating to the United States where she earned her MFA from the University of New Orleans, Louisiana. Currently residing in Denver, Colorado, Kerrane is Professor and Area Head for the Sculpture Program at the University of Colorado Denver. She was the Keynote for IRON R 2, Cork, Ireland in 2014 and is a board member for the Western Cast Iron Art Alliance. Kerrane contributed to steering the 7th International Conference in Contemporary Cast Iron Art (ICCCIA) in Latvia and is co-director for performances for the upcoming 8th ICCCIA in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 2018. She hosts nomadic foundry events in the region and values the interconnectivity between art practice and the community experience. www.RianKerrane.com

The Unfulfilled Promise of 'Never Again:' Historical Evolution of the Anti-Genocide Regime and the Limits of Global Governance - Adelphi University April 19, 2018 - Garden City

In the aftermath of the Holocaust, a global governance regime emerged to prevent and punish the crime of genocide. Despite cries for "Never Again," genocide has indeed happened "Again and Again."

Though Curtis McMurtry is only 24 years of age, many of the characters in his songs seem to have given up on life decades ago. His debut solo album Respectable Enemy (released August 2014) chronicles the narrations of unapologetically bitter individuals still haunted by the ghosts of lovers and friends they have long since driven away. Few other songwriters inhabit such lonely, spiteful people with such conviction. From the doomed narrator of "Foxhole" to the resigned nostalgia of "Eleanor's House" Curtis writes to break your heart into sharp, jagged pieces. Curtis was born and raised in Austin, Texas and grew up listening to local songwriters like Matt The Electrician, Jon Dee Graham, and his father, James McMurtry. He began performing in punk bands when he was 13, but was kicked out of those punk bands in high school for wanting to play the banjo. From 2009-2013 Curtis studied music composition at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, primarily writing contemporary chamber music for banjo and strings. In 2013, Curtis moved to Nashville for a year to sharpen his songwriting skills by co-writing with veteran writers including Fred Koller and Guy Clark. Curtis moved back to Austin in 2014, preferring to be based out of a city that understands that the perfect breakfast is served in taco form. Curtis has been touring nationally since the release of his album Respectable Enemy in August of 2014, and has since performed on NPR's Mountain Stage alongside such talents as Blake Mills and Norah Jones.

The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime's music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime's essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does.

The Biography of Angela B. Moonlanding is a musical about a woman named Angela discovering her complicated origins. The show follows two narratives: Angela's musical past, and the non-musical present where Angela and her roommate, April, undergo existential tribulations. We witness Angela's birth and childhood as we learn that she was traded to her adopted mother in exchange for a couch full of cocaine. In the present day, dissatisfied with her life, Angela disappears. After April gets a letter from Angela's long lost birth mother, the two temporalities (and musical/dramatic structures) intersect, and we discover where Angela is and where she really came from.

"There has always been pop music, but country music was always the avenue out of adolescence and into the grown up world with grown up issues like responsibilities and family. Someone's got to keep it alive, to preserve that kind of sound. That was our aim with this record." Jason Eady's extensive background in "grown up issues" is what explains why the word "poet" is so frequently associated with his name. A six-year stint in the US Air Force as a translator placed him in a slew of foreign cultures giving him a universal look into the nature of human beings and a good jumping off point for his comprehensive lyrical translations. The Mississippi native and Texas transplant has spent the last seven years in an incubation period undergoing a musical metamorphosis that has led him through lonesome delta blues, inspirational church house harmonies, poetically spun tales of Americana and into the naked and honest regions of good ole' country music. His three previous record releases have laid an impressive foundation starting with his 2005 debut FROM UNDERNEATH THE OLD (produced by Walt Wilkins and Tim Lorsch). That was followed by his 2007 sophomore release, WILD EYED SERENADE (produced by Eady), which was tagged as the Top 50 Albums of the Year by the No Depression reader's poll and reached #14 on the Americana Music Chart. WHEN THE MONEY'S ALL GONE (produced by Kevin Welch) is the last anyone has heard from Eady, until now. AM COUNTRY HEAVEN, Eady's fourth record release, originated as a side project with friend (and producer) Kevin Welch. The plan was to lay down some old school authentic country music out of sheer self-indulgence and as a labor of love. As the recordings got underway more and more people appeared in the studio contributing their ideas and adding their personal touches until their side project evolved into what is the highly anticipated album everyone is talking about. Eady says, "I love that old school country music so much. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of artists doing it these days. It's almost the opposite…like people are running away from it. I admit that this record is a drastic departure from anything I have done before, but this is where my heart is." AM COUNTRY HEAVEN features Redd Volkaert on guitar, Earl Poole Ball on piano, Tom Lewis on drums and Kevin Smith on acoustic bass - all members of Austin's all-star team of country music players called Heybale. Combined, they have recorded and toured with artists such as Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Junior Brown, Dale Watson, Connie Smith and Johnny Bush. They're responsible for the southern swagger on this album's tunes like "AM Country Heaven" and "I'll Sure Be Glad When I'm Wrong." Add legendary pedal steel player Lloyd Maines on the soulful "Longer Walk In The Rain" and "Lying To Myself" and a special vocal appearance from the incomparable Patty Loveless on "Man On A Mountain" and Eady's rich baritone timber, and what you have is a pure honky-tonk affair in the tradition of all the great troubadours that came before him. In addition to his own albums, his talent for prose has been embraced by his peers landing him two cuts on Micky and The Motorcars' latest record RAISE MY GLASS, one cut on Eleven Hundred Springs' forthcoming record and two co-written cuts on The Trishas' forthcoming record. Eady also co-penned The Trishas' latest single "Drive." Although the radical departure that is AM COUNTRY HEAVEN is sure to strike fans like a storm without warning, it seems that Eady is merely living up to his reputation for the element of surprise as perfectly stated by USA Today who said, "This Mississippi native's blues-rocker creeps up like gathering thunderheads."

Join The Shop at NBC Studios for a book signing and meet and greet with food blogger Siri Daly, author of upcoming cookbook Siriously Delicious.Like many of us trying to feed our families, Siri Daly is a very busy cook. Mother of three under the age of 10, regular TODAY food contributor, and wife of a bicoastal traveling man, Carson Daly ("The Voice" host and TODAY show co-host), Siri often doesn't know which end is up. A Midwestern girl at heart though, Siri wants to feed her family well, ideally the same delicious and wholesome meal for each member of her family. Siri is not a serious cook, as her play on words expresses, but she is serious about her food and what she serves her family, friends, and loved ones.Organized by six chapters of how a busy mom gets through her day--breakfast, lunch, happy hour (her favorite!), dinner with sides, and dessert--Siri's 100+ Siriously Delicious recipes are created with three goals in mind: to create food that is delicious and satisfying for both kids and adults, to prepare dishes packed with traditionally comforting flavors and ingredients (think cheese, avocado, chocolate!), and to make each recipe approachable for even a novice cook.

For his second appearance on the Composer Portraits series, Miller highlights this very early work, followed by the world premiere of Rzewski's latest string quartet, co-commissioned for the occasion.

The Archeology of Poetry—Digging the Moment with t'ai freedom ford - Poets House April 19, 2018 - New York

By definition, archeology is the study of human history through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains. By definition, poetry is a similar pursuit: poets excavate sites (and sights), unearthing and examining artifacts in an attempt to understand humanity. In this way, we will consider memories, photographs, and personal geographies as artifacts in order to get at a specific moment in time. By digging beyond the surface and examining these moments, one can begin to make sense of both personal and public histories. We will, of course, look to fellow poet-archeologists like Seamus Heaney, Tracy K. Smith, Kevin Young, Lucille Clifton, and others for inspiration and conversation around the writing/digging process.

From the battle grounds to his latest moniker Dumbfoundead in less than a decade has built a legendary history in the LA hip-hop scene. At the mere age of three, Park's mother smuggled both him and his sister past the Mexican border and nestled the family deeply into his Koreatown stomping ground. While he grew up listening to all genres of music, the hip-hop scene in the nineties was no doubt bustling – and through that Dumbfoundead found his initial hip-hop clique that clicked and clacked from a Macarthur Park community center to Project Blowed, an open-mic workshop in south central LA. Dumbfoundead developed his skills with an exponential rise to local and even national acclaim with everything from rap battle videos with views in the millions, spotlights on shows like Late Night with Carson Daly, and his curator role in one of K-town's most happening parties: Spamneggs alongside Far East Movement and Tokimonsta. Dumbfoundead is also an up and coming actor with supporting roles in Joseph Kahn's Detention (2011) and Season 3 of Power (2016). Most recently, Dumbfoundead released his Rocket Man EP in 2017.

From a single sticky note at a subway stop to the largest one-day protest in U.S. history to mark Trump's inauguration, expressions of public protest can take many forms, with art playing a crucial role.

QNA to hip-hop is like Legos to industrial design; the possibilities are endless. QNA's cerebral lyrics work in tandem with formidable musicianship to create music that's simultaneously explorative and traditional. Its members have been under the mentorship of luminaries such as John Pattitucci, John Abercrombie, and The Last Poets. Building on the precedents set by their mentors, they follow the music across genres and cultures, beginning dialogues with new musicians and audiences alike. Threesound, a Virginia based trio, dips into the genres funk, rock, and pop to create something fresh. Through eclectic songwriting, soulful grooves, and soaring guitars, they deliver an organic and original sound filled with fat backbeats and smooth sensibilities.

"Rock 'n' roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that it's remarkable the two don't fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers." – The New York Times.Discovered by legendary record executive Clive Davis, vocalist, songwriter, and saxophonist Curtis Stigers debut album sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide on the strength of self-penned hit singles like "I Wonder Why," "You're All That Matters to Me," and "Never Saw a Miracle." A year later, Stigers cover of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understanding" for The Bodyguard Soundtrack sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Further collaborations with Carole King, Al Green, Shawn Colvin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart — as well as multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, The Today Show, etc. — put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. With One More for the Road, and Hooray For Love, his latest releases for the Concord Jazz label, Stigers continues to fulfill a promise made to a younger version of himself: a commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook.

Sometimes the life we wanted, or the life we planned, is thwarted by the place in which we find ourselves, be it a totalitarian state, a nation at war with itself or a country emerging from decades of communist rule. These writers powerfully and movingly explore worlds, in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and South Korea, where people are buffeted by geopolitical forces beyond their control, and forced ultimately to make do with lives that fall far short of their dreams. With Georgi Gospodinov, Petra Hulova, and Hwang Sok-yong. Hwang Sok-yong is arguably Korea's most renowned author. After surviving five years in a North Korean prison, Sok-yong went on to receive Korea's highest literary prizes. His work is published in North and South Korea, Japan, China, France, Germany, and the U.S. Petra H?lová's novels, plays, and screenplays have won numerous awards, and she is a regular commentator on current events and gender issues for the Czech press. Her eight novels and three plays have been translated into twelve languages. Georgi Gospodinov is the author of Natural Novel and The Physics of Sorrow, which won the 2016 Jan Michalski Prize and was a finalist for the 2016 PEN Translation Prize. The Story Smuggler is his most recent book to appear in English, and the 2017 Academy Award nominee Blind Vaysha is based on one of his stories. He is currently a fellow at the Cullman Center at the New York Public Library.

The last time drummer Brendan Canty and bassist Joe Lally were in a band together, they were the rhythmic architects for Fugazi, an organization whose decade and a half of disciplined progressivism provided a necessary bridge between the zenith of late-punk expression and everything alternative in rock that followed. In 2016, the two were enlisted by guitarist Anthony Pirog in a conspiracy to subvert and reimagine the power trio, bringing fully into the 21st Century a form that may have reached near perfection with Hendrix's Band of Gypsys on the very first day of the 1970s. With a self-titled recording scheduled for release in the Spring of 2018 on Dischord, the Messthetics will widen the reach of a decisive instrumental music that so far, they have only shared with a privileged handful of east coast and southern audiences. Across its eight original compositions and one cover, Anthony guides the sound through complex changes and harmonic densities that might compound, but never confound or muddy its connection with the listener's body. Recorded by Brendan in their practice space, the group's debut gives Anthony ample opportunities to swap guitar textures and styles as freely as an octopus changes patterns.

Being forced to leave one's country involves profound physical dislocation as well as the emotional upheaval of being separated from family, friends, and the very roots of our existence. Often accompanying this change is the need to adjust to a new place, the strangeness and the stresses of crossing into a different world. Each panelist has experienced this. They talk about why they needed to upend their former lives and how they have adapted to their new ones. Xiaolu Guo, Dunya Mikhail and Hossein M Abkenar talk to Dinaw Mengestu about upending their former lives and how they have adapted to their new ones.

Immigration is one of the most polarizing issues in America today, but regardless of your point of view, there is no doubt the southern US border – "the river," "the wall," and the "borderlands" – has a grip on our collective imagination. The way we imagine the border is often informed by mythology; the way we speak of it, by visions of deprivation, violence, and even terror. Why do our psyches continually return to the border to understand our how we integrate immigrants into our nation? In what ways can writers capture the complexity and drama of this unique landscape while demystifying the rhetoric that impedes our understanding?

From 2000 to 2010, Buffalo saw a 33% rise in its foreign-born population, growing from 4.4% of the total population in 2000 to 6.0% in 2010. A high percentage of these families were refugees. Coming from countries such as Burma, Iraq, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Afghanistan, refugees contribute to the diversity of Buffalo's neighborhoods, schools, and businesses. Although an asset to our community, Buffalo's clinics, schools, and municipalities struggle to provide the necessary culturally and linguistically appropriate services due to lack of resources, personnel, and training.

Economics Seminar Series – Nicola Bianchi, Northwestern University, Kellogg School - University at Buffalo April 20, 2018 - New York

Economics Seminar Series – Nicola Bianchi, Northwestern University, Kellogg School April 20th, 2018 3:30pm – 5:00pm Abstract: Increasing access to education may have consequences that go beyond the effects on marginal students induced to enroll. It may change school quality, peer effects, and returns to skill. This paper studies the effects of an educational expansion on student learning, exploiting an Italian reform that changed the admission requirements for university STEM majors. Newly collected administrative data on 27,236 students indicate that the reform decreased learning in STEM fields due to overcrowded universities and negative peer effects. The analysis of long-run incomes suggests that the reform might have had a long-lasting negative effect on the returns to STEM degrees.

"I was having nightmares every night, thinking, 'Wow, they're going to hate this," says JD McPherson. When he talks about his new album, Undivided Heart & Soul, there's no glimmer of self-adulation, or even the confidence one might expect of a veteran artist. Instead, there's a snapshot of McPherson's creative process bringing the record to life, a journey filled with fear and change, then boldness, and, eventually, catharsis. The best rock music has a story to tell. This record chronicles a series of upheavals, frustrations, roadblocks, and kismet—a cross-country move, failed creative relationships, a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity, and learning to love making music again by letting go. McPherson calls moving his family from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to East Nashville a decision based "on opportunity" and one he was reluctant to make but notes the profound influence the city has had on his new crop of songs.

Sure Sure is an experimental pop band from Los Angeles, California. The highly collaborative group, composed of Chris Beachy (keyboardist, singer), Charlie Glick (guitarist, singer), Kevin Farzad (drums, percussion) and Michael Coleman (producer), has been releasing music since 2014. Perched on a hill in Highland Park, the boys self-produce all their music in their house-turned-studio – a myriad of instruments positioned throughout the first floor, with cables snaking up the walls to the recording console upstairs. Sure Sure's recordings and infectious live show have quickly solidified them as one of the most exciting up and coming bands in LA. Their sound is characterized by a glowing warmth, ear-worm melodies, and driving rhythms, like if the Talking Heads, Tame Impala and Steely Dan raised their love child together under the California sun. Ever since their 2016 single "New Biome" caught fire on Spotify, the band has been garnering a rapidly expanding audience, both online and in real life. In the summer of 2017 they began a new release cycle, putting out the heartbreak-pop tune "Friends," dance-tastic "Hands Up Head Down" and others, reaching #1 on the Hype Machine charts and gaining praise from Grizzly Bear, Rostam of Vampire Weekend and other staples in the indie music community. Following their album release on January 12 and Winter 2018 tour with Hippo Campus, Sure Sure will embark upon their national headline tour in April. You can call the boys at (323)739-0630 if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi.

Amir ElSaffar Raga Maqam Presented with the Brooklyn Raga Massive - The Jazz Gallery April 20, 2018 - New York

Legendary Blues Traveler front man and the voice/blues harp of a generation comes to Long Island, but anyway... RUN AROUND, BUT ANYWAY, THE HOOK, and more... Excited to announce an intimate duo performance from the 7x Platinum selling Grammy Winning Artist that helped bring the jams back to music and brought a Hendrix level of virtuosity and excitement to the harmonica...

2003 gave birth to one of the most extraordinary and best loved rock bands. The Darkness released their debut album Permission To Land to overnight success, topping the UK charts, going 5x Platinum and selling over 1.5 milion copies in the UK alone. It spawned a series of hit singles including "I Believe In A Thing Called Love," "Growing On Me," "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" and "Love Is Only A Feeling." The album clocked up a series of awards including three BRIT Awards, two Kerrang Awards and an Ivor Novello for Songwriters Of The Year, amongst many others. The Darkness played a number of landmark shows, including a headline set at the 2004 Reading and Leeds Festivals, as part of a whirlwind career of global touring as international sensations. The band then built upon the success of their debut with their 2005 follow up One Way Ticket To Hell… And Back, which produced the Top 10 hit "One Way Ticket." In 2006 Justin Hawkins left the band, checking into rehab and The Darkness fell apart. Following successful treatment, the band reformed in 2011 touring Europe and South America in 2012 with Lady Gaga.

2003 gave birth to one of the most extraordinary and best loved rock bands. The Darkness released their debut album Permission To Land to overnight success, topping the UK charts, going 5x Platinum and selling over 1.5 milion copies in the UK alone. It spawned a series of hit singles including "I Believe In A Thing Called Love," "Growing On Me," "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" and "Love Is Only A Feeling." The album clocked up a series of awards including three BRIT Awards, two Kerrang Awards and an Ivor Novello for Songwriters Of The Year, amongst many others. The Darkness played a number of landmark shows, including a headline set at the 2004 Reading and Leeds Festivals, as part of a whirlwind career of global touring as international sensations. The band then built upon the success of their debut with their 2005 follow up One Way Ticket To Hell… And Back, which produced the Top 10 hit "One Way Ticket." In 2006 Justin Hawkins left the band, checking into rehab and The Darkness fell apart. Following successful treatment, the band reformed in 2011 touring Europe and South America in 2012 with Lady Gaga. The band released their comeback album Hot Cakes that year and Last Of Our Kind in 2015. In 2016 "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" was featured in a wildly popular Apple Music commercial starring Taylor Swift.

New York Premiere of Michael Hersch’s Violin Concerto at St. Peter's Church on April 20 - Saint Peter's Church April 20, 2018 - New York

On Friday, April 20 at St. Peter's Church, Lex54 Concerts presents a program of premieres, including the New York premiere of Michael Hersch's Violin Concerto. Miranda Cuckson, who has performed almost all of Hersch's catalog of violin music, and most recently premiered a work he wrote for her, "the weather and landscape are on our side," will be the soloist. Cuckson released a recording of Hersch's violin works on the Vanguard Classics label in 2010, the wreckage of flowers. Described by the Financial Times as "one of the most fertile musical minds to emerge in the U.S. over the past generation,” Michael Hersch writes music "[whose] somber eloquence sings of truths that are personal yet not confessional ... Within the sober palette, the expressive power and range are vast" (New York Times). Also on the April 20 program are three other premieres: Jonathan Dawe's brand new clarinet concerto, Astounding Angels; the New York premiere of Nina C. Young's Vestigia Flammae; and the world premiere of EÉ-commissioned sinfonietta Snowlight by Phil Taylor.

A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation For the price of a fuzz pedal, learn techniques from the son of Frank Zappa. Dweezil Zappa's music camp Dweezilla has a motto "Learn And Destroy." It refers to destroying the boundaries that confine music creativity. While on tour with Zappa Plays Zappa Dweezil will be previewing some of the guitar concepts he teaches at camp in a special event prior to each concert. "I transformed my guitar technique before starting Zappa Plays Zappa out of necessity to play my dad's most sophisticated and challenging melodies. I've found a lot of exciting new approaches to the guitar. I started Dweezilla music camp as a way to share this information with guitarists. I'm excited to present an opportunity to share thoughts on my approach to guitar with students of all levels before each show on tour." Attendees are encouraged to bring their guitars, but there will be no amps THE MASTERCLASS TICKET DOES NOT INCLUDE A TICKET TO THE SHOW.

From 12th century mystic and polymath St. Hildegard von Bingen to "one of the greatest songwriters ever" (Rolling Stone) Joni Mitchell, from extraordinary machine Fiona Apple to socially conscious Liz Swados, from the First Lady of Song to Queen Bey, Grace McLean sings of the many muses that have helped shape her singular voice Called "electrifying" by The Huffington Post and "phenomenal" by The New York Times, Grace McLean is a multi-hyphenate actress-singer-writer-teacher on the rise.In addition to performing (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), Grace also makes time for her acclaimed original music, both as a solo artist and with her band Grace McLean & Them Apples. With a sound that combines Regina Spektor's quirkiness, Nellie McKay's jazz sensibilities, Fiona Apple's irreverence, Kimbra's sass and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs' rhythm, McLean adds up to one beautiful weirdo. Manhattan User's Guide writes, "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart," and Stephen Holden of the The New York Times says "Ms. McLean's voice [is] a flexiible instrument with unexpected reserves of power...Behind her playful adventurousness lies a well of passion."

New Old Skull (all ex Live Skull) White Hills EXCOP (Cop Shoot Cop/Swans) Nowhere Near (Bob Bert/Sonic Youth, Martin Bisi) Tidal Channel - Saint Vitus Bar April 20, 2018 - Brooklyn

Formed in 1982 by guitarists Mark C and Tom Paine with Marnie Greenholz on bass and James Lo on drums, Live Skull is considered by many aficionados to be the quintessential New York noise band. Together with Sonic Youth and Swans, Live Skull defined the term "noise rock" in the 1980s, spearheading the post-No Wave underground music scene in NYC with a series of legendary live performances and eight groundbreaking records released over the course of that decade. Often brutal and yet strangely seductive, each of these classic records creates hooks out of the most unlikely, seemingly disruptive elements, subverting traditional rock forms in previously unheard ways that became an undeniable (albeit often unacknowledged) influence on many of their contemporaries. Live Skull broke up in 1989, just within sight of that magical moment when the sort of music they pioneered began to finally break through, but the band's recorded output reminds us that Live Skull got there first.

Booksigning – YOGA & PSYCHE: Integrating the Paths of Yoga and Psychology for Healing, Transformation, and Joy - Tibet House US April 20, 2018 - New York

Has yoga improved your health and expanded your awareness—but emotional and relationship issues continue to challenge you? Or, have you found psychotherapy helpful, yet yearn for further spiritual discovery? With Yoga & Psyche, Mariana Caplan explores these two domains of transformation and how they complement each other, laying the groundwork for a new merging of the two. "When we bring together yoga and psychology," writes Caplan, "possibilities for growth are awakened within one's body, deep psyche, and spirit. Together they form a seamless weave of insights and practices that are applicable in the yoga studio, therapy room, or amid the rush of daily events." Through original research, clinical findings, Caplan's own experiences, and many practices, Yoga & Psyche takes us on an in-depth exploration of this emerging terrain.

Federico García Lorca's tragedy that unfolds in a cloistered world of women in 1930s Spain. "Hatred, jealousy and despair come to life, almost as characters in their own right, in the Repertorio Español's Spanish-language production of 'La casa de Bernarda Alba'… García Lorca's grim satisfaction in exposing the pretensions, self-deceits and destructive willfulness of Bernarda Alba and her five daughters in a world of women who are all victims is almost palpable." – The New York Times

"Like their name suggests, the band's sound is reminiscent of the kind of intimate space created by artists like Bon Iver. The group uses traditional orchestral and choral methods to create a track that is inexplicably modern, heavy, and pop at the same time." - American Songwriter "…impressively educated string section with octave pedals and vocal harmonies to create music that's both intimate and otherwordly." – Bitch Magazine "The Cabin Project, an orchestral indie pop trio from Portland, creates atmospheres that envelop and entrance on its upcoming album, Unfolded." - AllMusic.com

Antonio Vivaldi is a household name through his vastly famous The Four Seasons. In this exciting concert, the orchestra presents five lesser-known of his more than seven hundred works, full of the sparkling energy, vitality, and the bubbling originality that made him a star not just in his native Venice, but throughout Europe in his own day. Guest soprano Nell Snaïdas will sing two unforgettable cantatas, In furore, and Laudate, pueri. Freshman flute student Erin Barrett plays the famous La Notte ("Night") concerto; and concertmaster Igor Pikayzen brings to the stage two of the most brilliant violin concertos that give the famous Seasons a run for its money. Enhancing the evening's program is the world premiere of Ghazal, a profound and thoughtful work for string orchestra by graduating Adelphi senior, Oswaldo Machado.

A foundry, a factory. Industrial plants, focussed on processing their products in alembics with next to no margins for error. Always keeping one goal in sight: all components resemble each other down to their molecular level and are being led to a single purposed after being sold. The goal of the Cologne-based trio differs greatly from that of the common foundry. It is about diversity, aesthetics and their own roots. In their time of playing, the group grew into a unit. At all times their compositions mirror the authentic sound of JAF Instead of forcing every workpiece into a cast and thereby burdening them with tight restrictions, they choose the freedom of interaction, microtonal structures and playful grooves. A basic consideration for melody leads their way, even though they don't stop at rustic sounds and tunes.

The Mirabal sisters stood up to one of history's most notorious dictators, and this on-stage adaptation brings these national heroines back to life. "The outrage and sorrow that greeted the murder of the three elegant and revolutionary Mirabal sisters in the Dominican Republic during the homicidal dictatorship of General Rafael Trujillo have never really ended. These emotions are evident… and is the subject of 'In the Time of the Butterflies'… it largely does justice to this story of injustice." –Backstage

Books Are Magic is proud to host the Brooklyn Writers Space Reading Series, celebrating emerging writers from Brooklyn and sharing their recent work. This month we welcome Sam Graham-Felsen and Charles Leerhsen. Sam Graham-Felsen's debut novel, Green (Random House 2018), was a New York Times Editor's Pick, an Indie Next selection, and an Amazon Best of the Month choice. The Boston Globe called it a "a riot of language that's part hip-hop, part nerd boy, and part pure imagination . . . Green earns . . . a spot on the continuum of vernacular in the American literary tradition, from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to The Catcher in the Rye and Junot Díaz's The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao." Before becoming a fiction writer, Graham-Felsen was a political journalist and worked as the chief blogger to Barack Obama on his 2008 presidential campaign. Charles Leerhsen, the author of the New York Times bestseller Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty, has written for Sports Illustrated, Esquire, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, Smithsonian, Money, People, TV Guide and Seventeen. He has been an editor at SI, People and Us Weekly, and spent 11 years at Newsweek, where as a senior writer he covered sports, entertainment, family stories and breaking news. At Newsweek he won the National Mental Health Association award for a cover story on alcohol and the family. Leerhsen's previous books include the award-winning Crazy Good: The True Story of Dan Patch, the Most Famous Horse in America, and the highly-acclaimed Blood and Smoke: A True Tale of Mystery, Mayhem, and the Birth of the Indy 500, which has been optioned for a TV series.

Undivided Heart & Soul (2017) "I was having nightmares every night, thinking, 'Wow, they're going to hate this," says JD McPherson. When he talks about his new album, Undivided Heart & Soul, there's no glimmer of self-adulation, or even the confidence one might expect of a veteran artist. Instead, there's a snapshot of McPherson's creative process bringing the record to life, a journey filled with fear and change, then boldness, and, eventually, catharsis.

"England's the Darkness centered around irrepressible frontman Justin Hawkins (vocals/guitars/keyboards), who, along with his guitar-playing baby brother Dan, bassist Frankie Poullain, and drummer Ed Graham, single-handedly resurrected the rather unfashionable sounds and attitudes of late-'70s hard rock for an unsuspecting generation. Following the demise of an earlier, conspicuously synth pop-based outfit named Empire, the Hawkins brothers sowed the seeds of what would become the Darkness at an impromptu karaoke session on New Year's Eve 1999. Justin's rapturous rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" showed them the way, and the suitably dramatic name of the Darkness was chosen shortly after the arrival of Poullain and Graham. With outrageous stage antics that included gaudy leotards stolen from Steven Tyler's wardrobe, leaps and splits borrowed from David Lee Roth, and an ear-piercing falsetto copped from Freddie Mercury himself, the multi-talented elder Hawkins led the quartet as the group spent the next two years slogging it out in London's pub circuit. Though they were immediately singled out as a joke by the notoriously vicious British press, the Darkness' high-energy sets, remarkably catchy material, and unapologetic worship of old-school rock & roll bombast gradually earned them a fanatical following based on simple word of mouth. The tide finally began to shift in their favor in August 2002, when the Darkness released their debut EP I Believe in a Thing Called Love (through the independent label Must Destroy Music), won a major talent contest, and scored all-important opening slots with Deep Purple and Def Leppard. Their momentum carried through into the new year, starting with a knockout performance at Austin's SXSW music convention in January, continuing with the release of their "Keep Your Hands Off My Woman" single in February (peaking at number 36 in the U.K. chart), and climaxing in their subsequent signing of a major-label contract with Atlantic Records in March. Nothing could stop the Darkness' snowball effect now, and a series of acclaimed festival appearances set the stage for their debut album, Permission to Land, to debut atop the British charts -- the first time a new act had achieved such a feat since Coldplay three years earlier. Aside from the 2003 Christmas single Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End), the Darkness concentrated on touring until 2005, when they returned to the studio with Cars and Foreigner producer Roy Thomas Baker. During the recording of their sophomore album, the band parted ways with Poullain and replaced him with former guitar tech Richie Edwards. One Way Ticket to Hell...and Back was released late in 2005 but didn't fare as well as its predecessor, which took a toll on Justin Hawkins. Following several months of touring, the frontman entered rehab in August 2006 for alcohol and cocaine abuse. Although he completed the program, Hawkins nevertheless left the Darkness' lineup later that year, leaving the group's fate in the hands of his former bandmates. The remaining musicians regrouped under the name Stone Gods the following year, while Justin busied himself with preparations for a solo album." - Eduardo Rivadavia, AllMusicGuide

LPR Presents at Union Pool: Joseph King and the Mad Crush - Le Poisson Rouge April 20, 2018 - West Village

Here Come the Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a one-track mind. Their "Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave" is sure to get you into them (and possibly vice versa). Since their discovery, HCTM has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; played massive festivals like Summer Camp, Common Ground, Voodoo Fest, Musikfest, Summerfest, and Riverbend; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America. Maybe that's why the ladies (and some dudes) can't stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth. Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh's daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM's mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for Here Come The Mummies.

Warm yourself up with this monthly storytime. Listen to stories about tea parties and visit the Ladies Parlor to see the tea party display. Afterward, there will be a pretend tea party using cups and saucers from the Touch Collection. For children 6 and younger.

AKTINA Presents: Greek Music Journey 2018, The Magic Of Bouzouki! - The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College April 20, 2018 - New York

AKTINA's acclaimed concert series, "Greek Music Journey" brings to the Kaye a new and spectacular performance produced by Elena Maroulleti highlighting "The Magic of Bouzouki" in the everlasting rembetika (Greek blues) and Laika (popular folk songs) with the leading bouzouki soloist and virtuoso of Greece Andreas Karantinis, the renowned guitarist/composer Manolis Androulidakis and his band and the talented singers Vasiliki Stefanou and Aris Kampanos. During the 20th century the Greek music repertoire has been enriched with the finest and most representative examples of the rembetika and laika songs and along with the bouzouki, the prominent musical instrument for this type of music which also became to be known as "bouzouki music", their fame and popularity has surpassed the boundaries of Greece. Their fame was further intensified across the globe thanks to great Greek composers such as Mikis Theodorakis (Zorba the Greek), Manos Hadjidakis (Never on Sunday), Stavros Xarhakos (Rembetiko) whose songs will also be featured. This benefit concert for AKTINA FM and AKTINA TV, co-presented by AKTINA and CYPRECO, also celebrates AKTINA's 25th anniversary. Andreas Karantinis who captivated audiences during AKTINA's past concerts returns to the Kaye to revive "The Magic of Bouzouki" in a performance that no one should miss!

A good song has a way of speaking to everybody" Danny Barnes says. "I have faith that more people are going to hear my songs, which is really what I have to offer. I'm not one of those virtuoso instrumentalists, I can't compete with those guys, but the one thing I can do is write really good songs." Part Southern gentleman, part humble artist, Barnes is being more than a bit self-effacing with this statement. Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and genre-bending artists of his craft, Barnes' musical interests are both varied and adventurous, and he incorporates that versatility into a progressive approach to an instrument that is musically polarizing and steeped in tradition. Although he demonstrates an appreciation for the history of the bluegrass, country, and folk music from which the banjo's reputation was born, his inventive take is what truly separates him from his contemporaries…using the banjo as his 'weapon of choice' to play non-traditional music like rock, fusion, and jazz with electronic percussion and loop elements. He has come to redefine the banjo's perceived image in an eclectic career for which genre definitions have merely been a polite suggestion. From his early days as the driving force behind the impressive Austin-based Bad Livers, a band of pioneering Americana missionaries, through a prolific solo career and the development of his trademark 'Barnyard Electronics' project, a startling approach that incorporates digital technology and various effect pedals to stretch the tonal range of the instrument, Barnes has always listened to his proudly offbeat inner voice.

Fun, fast, loud.It's Bangers and Mash. Cranking out original songs or completely skewering a classic, "BAM" gives it all they've got. They'll keep you dancing in the aisles, raising a pint, and having a ball. Music for the Celticly Insane The Fighting Jamesons deliver a traditional style of music with an aggressive and energetic modern-day approach. Forming in 2010, The Fighting Jamesons quickly gained a strong presence on the East Coast. They've shared the stage with legendary Irish rock acts such as Dropkick Murphys, The Saw Doctors, and Young Dubliners. In November of 2011 the band released their self-titled debut album, produced Capital Records.

Luenell is a force of nature. This talented comedienne actress and singer was born in Tollette Arkansas a town whose population barely registers with the U.S. census. At the tender age of 10 she caught the acting bug after seeing the plays South Pacific and Ain't S'posed to Die a Natural Death. She enrolled in theatre classes at the grade school level and continued to study through college and cut her teeth at the Oakland Ensemble Theatre. In March of 1995 Luenell's mom passed away and one month later she discovered she was pregnant. Some months later a beautiful daughter Da'Nelle was born and she is the joy of her life her "miracle child" as Luenell puts it.

Best known as one half of the hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred duo Cheech and Chong (now back on tour), Cheech Marin is a paradox in the world of entertainment. Cheech is an actor, director, writer, musician, art collector, and humanitarian, a man who has enough talent, humor, and intelligence to do just about anything. He is truly a multi-generational star. To this day, Cheech and Chong films remain the number one weekend video rentals, and Cheech is widely acknowledged as a cultural icon. Cheech (real name Richard) Marin was born in South Central Los Angeles and met Tommy Chong in Vancouver, British Columbia as a political refugee. The duo moved back to Los Angeles and proved entertainment gold. Six of their albums went gold, four were nominated for Grammys, and Los Cochinos won the 1973 Grammy for Best Comedy Recording. The critically acclaimed duo made a fluid transition to films, starring in eight features together. During a split with Chong, Cheech wrote, directed, and starred in the comedy Born In East L.A.. He has appeared in over 20 films, including his scene-stealing role in Tin Cup . On television, Cheech was a sitcom regular before joining Don Johnson on the highly successful CBS drama, Nash Bridges (1996-2001). He later had a recurring role on the hit NBC show, Lost, and recent guest stints on Rob and Jane the Virgin. In 2009, everyone's favorite duo reunited after 25 years apart for a national and international comedy tour, the Lights Out Tour, selling out everywhere. They also shot a full length live comedy film Hey Watch This in 2010. The Get It Legal Tour followed, and they are now on the Cheech & Chong: A Joint Venture Tour. Cheech is a favorite with children around the world through his many roles in animated movies and music projects, including Oliver & Company, The Lion King, Cars, and Cars 2. Cheech contributes a lot of time and energy to promoting Chicano art. Since the mid-1980s, he has amassed a renowned private collection of Chicano art, the largest in North America. He will also be the brand ambassador for a new line of mescal, Tres Papalote. Cheech is a nationally ranked golfer, active in the charity circuit. Married to Russian-born classical pianist, Natasha Marin, the couple resides in Pacific Palisades, CA. To learn more, visit www.CheechMarin.com.

Remember that mix tape your friend made you way back when - the one that's etched in your soul? Martin Sexton's new album Mixtape of the Open Road is that musical cross-country trip, blazing through all territories of style, as you cruise through time and place. This record is a charm bracelet of twelve gems all strung together with the golden thread of what Rolling Stone calls a "soul marinated voice." A native of Syracuse, N.Y., and the tenth of 12 children, Martin Sexton grew up in the '80s. Uninterested in the music of the day, he fueled his dreams with the timeless sounds of classic rock 'n' roll. As he discovered the dusty old vinyl left in the basement by one his big brothers, his musical fire was lit. Sexton eventually migrated to Boston, where he began to build a following singing on the streets of Harvard Square, gradually working his way through the scene. His 1992 collection of self-produced demo recordings, In the Journey, was recorded on an old 8-track in a friend's attic. He managed to sell 20,000 copies out of his guitar case. From 1996 to 2002 Sexton released Black Sheep, The American, Wonder Bar and Live Wide Open. The activity and worldwide touring behind these records laid the foundation for the career he enjoys today with an uncommonly loyal fan base; he sells out venues from New York's Nokia Theatre to L.A.'s House of Blues, and tours regularly across Canada and Europe.

A multi-ethnic British-Nigerian girl brought up on the mean streets of Cardiff Wales. An extraordinarily white New Mexican brought up on the wind-swept prairie. The similarities are astounding! One has won countless awards the world over; the other once got a blue ribbon from the county fair. One has recorded historic themes for no less than three James Bond films; the other has seen those movies at least once. One was named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire; the other has been called a big ole queen more than a few times. But both have voices so big, they'll blow your damned wig clear across the street! And now they meet on stage for the very first time! John Burns and Dame Shirley Bassey! (Well, not actually Shirley Bassey, just the songs she made famous!) Come enjoy an evening of songs, laughter and plenty of alcohol as we celebrate the great Welsh songtress and see what a country boy can learn from her remarkable career.

(Time Out New York). Their sound has been described as having "excitement, originality, and an undeniable intensity that louder, heavier bands only dream of.

Jamal Moss, aka Hieroglyphic Being, started making lo-fi dance tracks in the mid '90s, long before it was the sound du jour. Over the past two decades he's produced music at a staggering pace — to the tune of several albums each year — amassing a catalogue that includes releases on Soul Jazz, Planet Mu and his own Mathematics Recordings, and spans house, techno, noise, industrial and avant-jazz. In his sets, he blurs the line between DJing and live performance, resulting in a distinctive, at times otherworldly experience. Tonight, he plays from open to close. It will not be your average club set, not by a long shot.

We are really proud of the song elements and diversity on HAVEN" adds guitarist Thomas Youngblood.

"Rock 'n' roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that it's remarkable the two don't fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers." – The New York Times.Discovered by legendary record executive Clive Davis, vocalist, songwriter, and saxophonist Curtis Stigers debut album sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide on the strength of self-penned hit singles like "I Wonder Why," "You're All That Matters to Me," and "Never Saw a Miracle." A year later, Stigers cover of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understanding" for The Bodyguard Soundtrack sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Further collaborations with Carole King, Al Green, Shawn Colvin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart — as well as multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, The Today Show, etc. — put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. With One More for the Road, and Hooray For Love, his latest releases for the Concord Jazz label, Stigers continues to fulfill a promise made to a younger version of himself: a commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook.

Raised in the Swannanoa Valley outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Reed Turchi grew up playing piano, focusing on boogie woogie and New Orleans styles before becoming infatuated with slide guitar. While learning Hill Country Blues (RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Mississippi Fred McDowell) firsthand in North Mississippi, he founded his blues-rock trio "TURCHI," which released its debut album Road Ends in Water in 2012. Called "everything a blues fan could want" (LA Examiner), the album featured guest Luther Dickinson on three tracks. During a series of national tours, TURCHI released Live in Lafayette in early 2013, and exploded on the blues-rock scene, notably earning high praise from Living Blues Magazine ("for all of their communion with the past, TURCHI sounds vital, alive, and essential"), landing on the cover of Buscadero (Italy) and being showcased in a five-page feature in Il Blues Magazine (Italy). At that point, TURCHI's national touring grew to include Europe, highlighted with a headlining spot at Mojo Festival (Rome) in June 2014 after the release of Can't Bury Your Past, which expanded the trio with keyboards/organ (Anthony Farrell) and saxophone (Art Edmaiston).

Quality is timeless. Just ask The Hot Sardines. In the talented hands of the New York-based ensemble, music first made famous decades ago comes alive through their brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and vocals from a chanteuse who transports listeners to a different era with the mere lilt of her voice. On French Fries & Champagne, The Hot Sardines' new album for Universal Music Classics, the jazz collective broadens its already impressive palette, combining covers and originals as they effortlessly channel New York speakeasies, Parisian cabarets and New Orleans jazz halls. Bandleader Evan "Bibs" Palazzo and lead singer "Miz Elizabeth" Bougerol met in 2007 after they both answered a Craigslist ad about a jazz jam session above a Manhattan noodle shop. The unlikely pair— she was a London School of Economics-educated travel writer who grew up in France, Canada and the Ivory Coast, he was a New York City born and raised actor who studied theater at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia—bonded over their love for Fats Waller. Influenced also by such greats as Dinah Washington, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday, they began playing open mic nights and small gigs and by 2011, they headlined Midsummer Night Swing at New York's Lincoln Center. The Hot Sardines' self-titled debut album, named by iTunes as one of the best jazz albums of 2014, spent more than a year on the Billboard Jazz Chart, debuting in the top 10 alongside Michael Bublé, and Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. The accolades began pouring in for the band: Downbeat called The Hot Sardines "one of the most delightfully energetic bands on New York's 'hot' music scene," while The London Times praised their "crisp musicianship" and "immaculate and witty showmanship," declaring them "simply phenomenal."

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

"Mark my words, you will be singing these tracks after only one round through this album." - VIOLENT SUCCESS Brooklyn's Animal Years bring a fresh face to indie roots rock. With influences ranging from early Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, Young The Giant, The Wallflowers, to The Avett Brothers, Animal Years is driven by Mike McFadden's crisp vocals and magnetic poise, featured on the forthcoming record, Sun Will Rise, was released May 6th, 2014. Free-wheeling, feel-good melodies and smooth ringing guitars shine on Sun Will Rise. From the glorious opening track and first single, "Meet Me" to rockabilly closer, "Walking Slow," the quartet delivers indie rock with grace. Title track "Sun Will Rise" blossoms with country/folk tinges, and dancy "Forget What They're Telling You" crescendos with impassioned vocals and guitar strums. Sun Will Rise showcases the delicacy and introspection behind songwriting and draws on the strengths of McFadden's seasoned voice and multi-instrumental abilities.

On a grand scale, there's the New York premiere of the complete version of The Passion of Ramakrishna, a quietly intense work of tremendous power honoring the Hindu holy man. Shankar's daughter, Anoushka Shankar, is also center stage when she performs his Concerto No. 3 for Sitar and Orchestra with the Orange County–based Pacific Symphony, led by its music director of 28 seasons, Carl St.Clair.

Languages rarely exist in isolation, and almost always find themselves in a pecking order of power. In a country like the U.S., Spanish is seen as secondary to English, though it is the official language of over 20 countries and the lingua franca for numerous communities, from indigenous peoples to newly arrived immigrants. And yet, the existence of a dominant language can also be a deterrent to linguistic diversity. This panel explores some of the places where Spanish abuts other languages and how power relationships ebb and flow. How does translation affect these relationships? Can it restore a place of equality between a majority language and a minoritized language? And does it erase difference in the process? With Alicia Kopf, Judith Santopietro, Trifonia Melibea Obono, Rubén Ríos-Avila. Moderated by Mary Ann Newman. Mary Ann Newman translates fiction (Quim Monzó), poetry (Josep Carner), and essay (Xavier Rubert de Ventós) from Catalan and Spanish. She is co-chair of the PEN America Translation Committee and in 2017 won the NACS Award for Outstanding Scholarship and the J.B. Cendrós Award (Òmnium Cultural) for her translation of Private Life by Josep Ma. de Sagarra.

Colm Toibin's latest novel House of Names tells the story of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, Orestes, Electra and Iphigenia but Toibin drew on contemporary proponents of extreme violence – the Boston marathon bomber, ISIS and a shocking ambush of Irish Protestants during the Troubles to reach his understanding of how to write about these Ancient Greek murderers. Aminatta Forna's Happiness similarly draws on the brutal modern wars in Bosnia, Sierra Leone and Iraq to illuminate an African trauma psychiatrist's evolving attitude to how his profession should understand – and treat – individuals traumatized by violence. Two of today's outstanding lyrical writers of fiction discuss their approaches to writing about this extremely tough topic. Colm Toibin is the author of nine novels, including Brooklyn and House of Names, and two collections of stories. In 2017, he was awarded the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Lifetime Achievement and the Kenyon Review Prize. He is Irene and Sidney B. Silverman Professor of Humanities at Columbia and a Contributing Editor at the London Review of Books. His work has been translated into more than thirty languages. Photo Credit: Brigitte Lacombe

Where do people find the inner resources, the determination, the doggedness and the sheer physical wherewithal to keep going in the face of adversity and torment? Each of these writers tells compelling stories of epic feats of persistence. Sharon Bala's boatload of Sri Lankan refugees lands in Canada but instead of receiving sanctuary they are imprisoned because of fears that their group includes terrorists; their quest for freedom moves to the courts. Marcos Aguinis tells the extraordinary story of the Jewish intellectual who resisted the tortures of the Spanish Inquisitors in 16th century South America and fought to retain his faith. The common theme is the almost superhuman effort of individuals to persist in the face of danger and death. Sharon Bala's debut novel, The Boat People, was published by McClelland & Stewart and Doubleday US in January 2018. The manuscript won the Percy Janes First Novel Award and was shortlisted for the Fresh Fish Award. A three-time recipient of Newfoundland and Labrador's Arts and Letters award, she has stories published in Hazlitt, Grain, The Dalhousie Review, and others.

As courts pave the way for the introduction of same sex marriage rights in Taiwan, the novels of Qiu Miaojin, who killed herself at age 26, open a door to a time of great change in Taiwanese culture, from the social and political vilification of LGBTQ people there to the underground explosion of gender and LGBTQ diversity. Bonnie Huie, translator of Qiu's Notes of a Crocodile, and Ari Larissa Heinrich, translator of her Last Words from Montmartre, talk to poet and novelist Eileen Myles about an artist who has become a countercultural icon and whose work has had a lasting impact on literature and LGBTQ identity in Taiwan. Co-presented with the Ministry of Culture (Taiwan) and Taipei Cultural Center in New York. Bonnie Huie is a translator of Chinese and Japanese. Her recent book, Notes of a Crocodile, a coming-of-age tale about queer misfits in late-1980s Taipei by Qiu Miaojin, has been longlisted for the PEN Translation Prize.

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

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

Ray reminds us that immigrants are not the ones who “Make you work harder while cutting your pay and scheming to outsource your job away.” He warns sexist bosses: “This is Nine to Five, not Fantasy Island. Bring your newspaper here, leave your Hustler behind!” And if we get too much more sunshine: “Why not make the North Pole a hot spot for tennis? Put gondolas on New York streets – it worked in Venice!” Perhaps his most important message to us is “The People Are In Charge!” Trump makes us want to run and hide; Ray’s songs make us laugh and get active! Please join us for our fourth annual concert of Ray Korona songs. Since he passed away, the band – and you! – have kept Ray’s music alive. This year Ivice, Barry Kornhauser, Ellen Davidson, and Gina Tlamsa — augmented by Laura Liben, Dave Tarlo and Chris Owens – will again present a selection of Ray’s songs. Interspersed will be guest performances by Lydia Adams Davis; Brooke Dramer & Tracy Fitz; DuPree; Jenny Amanda Hurwitz, Talbot Katz & SamiRose Katz; Sharleen Leahey; Marie Mularczyk O’Connell, Candice Baranello, Lorraine Berger & Doreen D’Amico; NYC Raging Grannies; Peter Pasco; Adele Rolider; Mercy Van Vlack, and Lindsey Wilson.

The Biography of Angela B. Moonlanding is a musical about a woman named Angela discovering her complicated origins. The show follows two narratives: Angela's musical past, and the non-musical present where Angela and her roommate, April, undergo existential tribulations. We witness Angela's birth and childhood as we learn that she was traded to her adopted mother in exchange for a couch full of cocaine. In the present day, dissatisfied with her life, Angela disappears. After April gets a letter from Angela's long lost birth mother, the two temporalities (and musical/dramatic structures) intersect, and we discover where Angela is and where she really came from.

SOFI TUKKER's success was anything but planned. The band's very existence happened haphazardly after Sophie Hawley-Weld met Tucker Halpern during an art show at Brown University, where they both happened to be performing. It only took a couple of months before the NYC-based duo penned their viral track "Drinkee," which has since racked up over 40 million Spotify streams and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. The song was the first they ever wrote, and became the backbone of their wildly successful EP, Soft Animals. It also took them around the world, with their high-energy live show packing venues on five continents and lighting up prestigious festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza. In late 2017 the band scored their biggest Apple ad to date, when the company chose their unreleased track "Best Friend" to soundtrack the launch of their flagship iPhone X. The heat generated from the ad launched the song at radio worldwide; It is now steadily propelling up the US Pop and Alternative Radio charts and is perched in the upper echelons of the iTunes Singles and Shazam charts across the globe. Having already gotten as close to cultural world domination as a young act can get, SOFI TUKKER's future is looking brighter than ever.

Vangeline Theater presents Nine April 21, 2018 at 8pm Vangeline Theater presents Japanese Butoh dancer Dai Matsuoka (principal dancer with celebrated butoh company Sankai Juku) on April 21, 2018, at 8pm at Cameo Studios, 307 W. 43rd Street, Studio A, NYC. With this performance, Vangeline Theater debuts its Studio Series, where audiences enjoy the unique opportunity to witness the skill and polish of talented dancers in an intimate setting. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at https://nine.brownpapertickets.com. Doors open at 7:45pm - Space is limited to 60. Dai Matsuoka is a Butoh Dancer and the Artistic Director of LAND FES. He has been a principal dancer with SANKAI JUKU since 2005 and has danced in eight Sankai Juku pieces including "Kinkan Shonen", "Tobari", "Meguri" and "Unetsu".   Dai Matsuoka is also in collaboration with puppet company Phantom Limb (NYC) and a member of The Dance Archive Network dedicated to the preservation of Butoh legend Yoshito Ohno's digital motion data.   Vangeline is a teacher, dancer, and choreographer specializing in the Japanese postwar avant-garde movement form Butoh. She is the Artistic Director of the Vangeline Theater (New York), a dance company firmly rooted in the tradition of Japanese Butoh while carrying it into the 21st century, and the founder of the New York Butoh Institute.   Vangeline's work has been heralded in publications such as The New York Times ("captivating"), Los Angeles Times ("moves with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese Butoh artist") and LA Weekly, to name a few. Time OUT Chicago named Vangeline's "one of the best Dance Visits of 2011." More recently her BUTOH BEETHOVEN: Eclipse received critical acclaim in New York and was dubbed: "incredibly moving and powerful. It is clear that Vangeline is an artist who knows the darkness of Butoh well and has the incredible skill to make that darkness dance...Vangeline has the control and poise of a true master of Butoh." With her all-female dance company, Vangeline's socially conscious performances tie together Butoh and activism. Vangeline is the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance's Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award. Film projects include a starring role alongside actors James Franco and Winona Ryder in the feature film by director Jay Anania The Letter (2012-Lionsgate). She is pioneering a project exploring the intersection of Butoh and Neuroscience and has recently been invited to perform with/for Grammy Award Winning artists SKRILLEX and Esperanza Spalding.    VANGELINE THEATER/ NEW YORK BUTOH INSTITUTE aims to preserve the legacy and integrity of Japanese Butoh while carrying the art form well into the future. The unique art of Butoh originated in post-World War II Japan as a reaction to the loss of identity caused by the westernization of Japanese culture, as well as a realization that ancient Japanese performing traditions no longer spoke to a contemporary audience. One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique performing art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century.

They didn't know it at the time, but for years the members of The Cosmic Coronas were on an inevitable collision course toward the creation of the ultimate rock experience with tasty bits of soul, punk, folk and funk. Their desire to use music to ignite the cosmic connection between us all launched them rapidly from casual jam sessions to headlining respected venues across NYC, including Mercury Lounge, American Beauty, and Webster Hall. The brilliance of the Cosmic Coronas began with the after-work jam between co-workers and CEO of a Midtown recruiting firm. In the winter of 2014, Brad Widolok, the boss in the office and commander of screaming lead guitar lines, met up with the smooth and sophisticated, lifelong rhythm guitarist Noah Nielsen and natural-athlete-turned-natural-rockstar Kevin Gayson on acoustic at New York's Euphoria Studios. Ever the recruiter, Kevin invited a couple of friends from his college days at the University of Albany to forge a rhythm section for the guitar trio.

Don Juan is a tragicomedy written by the famous French playwright and actor Molière, and performed in five acts in 1665. Based on the legend of Don Juan, the play follows the actions of a libertine in Sicily. Don Juan is a wealthy nobleman who romances ever pretty young woman he meets regardless of their status and despite moral values. He offers them marriage, even going so far as to marry a different woman every month. Moliere's play shows Don Juan as a rationalist atheist who values the power of reason and dismiss the fear linked to religious faith. After fifteen performances the play was withdrawn from the stage and published in its full version only after the French Revolution, in 1813.

A Prairie Home Companion is heard by 2.6 million listeners each week on nearly 600 public radio stations, online, and on the American Forces Networks, SiriusXM Radio, Radio New Zealand, and KPRG in Guam. "I grew up with the show. I take this opportunity, this job, immensely seriously and with great awe." – Chris Thile "Garrison created a template that I think is immortal. It doesn't feel like any kind of constraint. It's like a license. I feel like I have my license to go and make some good radio. … The prospect of getting to make things for people on a weekly basis … is beyond compare. It's what I love to do." — Chris Thile "Chris is my man. … He is, I think, the great bluegrass performer of our time and he is a beautiful jazz player. There just isn't anything he can't do — and he is very enthusiastic about live radio." - Garrison Keillor "The best idea I've had since Powdermilk Biscuits." – Garrison Keillor on selecting Chris Thile as new host of A Prairie Home Companion Complete show information at www.prairiehome.org .

The third in a series of concerts and conversation exploring the intersection between music and social change. Dom Flemons is a Grammy Award-winning musician, singer-songwriter, and slam poet. Carrying on the songster tradition, Flemons strives to mix traditional music forms with a contemporary approach, to create new sounds that will appeal to wider audiences. In his recent solo album Prospect Hill (2014), Flemons drew from a wide range of styles, including ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, southern traditional music, string band music, fife and drum music, and jug-band music. He began his career as a performer in the Arizona music scene, where he produced 25 albums for singer-songwriters and slam poets in Phoenix. In 2005, Flemons co-founded the Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band that won a Grammy for its 2010 album, "Genuine Negro Jig." Victory Boyd's music is a fusion between Soul music and Folk Music. Whether Victory is performing classics or original compositions, she has a way of tailoring each song with her voice and guitar to fit her unique style. Some people say that Victory is in the lane of Tracy Chapman, Roberta Flack, and Nina Simone. But beyond those three, Victory brings an entirely new youthful element to the music world, an indescribable spiritual depth mixed with her youthful interpretation of sound influencing her artistic expressions. Moreover Victory colors a lot of her musical arrangements with rich jazz chords as she is rooted and grounded in Jazz tradition.

Turkuaz is a rock band at its core that blends soulful sounds with potent funk grooves.

Wild Ones delve into the bliss and burden that musicians are tasked with today: create work that captures your spirit, but do it without selling your soul. Self-produced and recorded, they walk the line of DIY oddity and polished pop sheen. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the band combines the talents of lead vocalist Danielle Sullivan, keyboardist Thomas Himes, drummer Seve Sheldon, guitarist Nick Vicario and bassist Max Stein. Growing up on Cocteau Twins and En Vogue, their sound is a mash of R&B synths, muted guitar, and somber vocal melodies. After 7 years together, they've hit their stride in creating work that poses questions about art and authenticity.

In the tradition of the Punchdrunk Theatre Company's 2011 Off-Broadway production of SLEEP NO MORE, The Harlem Repertory Theatre is performing THE COLORED MUSEUM in five rooms throughout the Tato Laviera Theatre complex. The audience will be led through five performance spaces as they stand inches away from eleven exhibits about the African American Diaspora. Small groups of 15 to 20 people will move throughout our "Colored Museum" as they observe and interact with: • Aunt Ethel, who sings about creating Black people; • Miss Roj, who will welcome you to his decadent bar, The Bottomless Pit (were you can actually purchase drinks and snacks) as he tells it, "like it Tiz"; • Junie and Normal who share their heart-wrenching secrets that will shock and amaze you, and • the culminating exhibit, an uplifting and inspirational celebration of life, history, and the spirit. This brilliant masterpiece that was written by the remarkable director, playwright and producer, George C. Wolfe, is filled with stunning poetry, entertaining music, and characters who will break your heart one moment and have you splitting your sides the next. This unusual site-specific theatrical event includes three interludes during which you are encouraged to relax with a drink or snack as you experience this once-in-a-lifetime unique evening in the theatre.

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

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

The Elastic Time Cannon is a mind bending, time blending, never ending adventure through the space-time continuum. With the suggestion of an opening line of dialogue this extratemporal cast creates an expanding and eventually collapsing universe of characters all born from the same moment in time. ETC shows are marked with causal loops, dimensional incursions, and a multiverse of high stakes moments. It's an absurd, laugh out loud thrill ride of a show!

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

Following the enthusiastic public response to Balloon Flower (Blue), the large mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture installed in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin in 1999, the Deutsche Guggenheim commissioned the first seven of the Easyfun-Ethereal paintings: mural-sized tableaux that combine cut-out photographs of packaged foods, fragments of faces, limbs, and hair, amusement park scenes, and paradisiacal landscapes into images of convulsive beauty.

Calling all storytellers! Join puppeteer and poeteer Jake Bazel (The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, Sesame Street) and his puppet pal Oliver the Idea in this brand new workshop designed for the Storytelling Lab. Lots of Ideas have found their way to Brooklyn recently, and they need your help finding the perfect beginnings, middles and ends so they can grow up into full-fledged Stories.

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

Jalopy Theatre Presents: Belle-Skinner On the first Friday of each month, Jalopy Theatre sponsors music at the American Folk Art Museum as part of a continuing partnership. Tonight's performance features Belle-Skinner: Belle-Skinner will present a program of original music on guitar and vocals, including folk- and jazz-inspired tunes classified as "nostalgic indie-folk." With a hauntingly beautiful, lilting soprano and innate sense of melody she crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads – nuanced and layered stories which bridge the gap between past and present. Though her influences cover a broad range of genres – from French chansons and Russian folk to contemporary alt-pop and rock – her voice often draws comparisons to the likes of Joan Baez, Jeff Buckley, and Angel Olsen. Opening for acts such as Saint Saviour, Bill Ryder-Jones, Joy Ike, Sean Rowe, Mitski, Novelty Daughter, Winterpills, and Heather Maloney, she has performed at venerated venues like The Linda, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, and the Roundhouse Theatre in London. In 2015 she was a finalist at the Telluride Troubadour Competition; a showcasing songwriter on the main-stage at Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO; a semi-finalist in The 2015 Great American Songwriting Contest; a finalist in July 2016's SolarFest Songwriter Showcase; and in August 2016 a showcasing artist at MusikFest, the country's largest free music festival. In 2013 she was awarded a Maguire Fellowship to study music production in London, where she recorded her first EP, titled Operator. Her self-produced record, titled We Shut Our Eyes, was released in November 2016. Last year she relocated to NYC from Upstate NY, and currently performs extensively with her originals and as a jazz singer.

The Blackfoot Gypsies have unleashed a set of original roadhouse rockin' tunes with To the Top, on Plowboy Records. The Nashville, Tennessee based powerhouse quartet demonstrate raucous energy and soul on this collection delivering their take on white-knuckled rock'n'roll. Across the 15 tracks of To the Top, the Blackfoot Gypsies fuse their influences -- swamp blues cool, downhome hillbilly funk and homegrown punk panache -- into a lean, mean machine invoking such classic musical malcontents as the Rolling Stones, the Faces and Mott the Hoople, while sparking and spitting 21st-century fire. It's the type of record that could only come from a band that learned to rock the old-fashioned way -- one sweaty, full-throttle live performance at a time. The band's brew of rock, hillbilly and blues began in 2010 when Oregon native, guitarist and singer Matthew Paige moved to Nashville and hooked up with drummer and Music City native Zack Murphy. The pair wanted to form a full band, but the urge to rock could not wait.

Players must sign up as a team of two; no individual registrations allowed. The cost of entry to the tournament is $20 per team, to be paid in cash at the tournament. This event is open to students, faculty, and staff as well as friends and family of the Adelphi community. The winning team will receive $50 and two team discs.

Alicia Witt has a passion for connecting with her fans. "The thing I love the most is when people come up to me after a show and they tell me that a song perfectly describes a situation they're going through," says the singer, songwriter, pianist and acclaimed actor, whose first full-length studio LP, Revisionary History, comes out May 5, 2015. Witt's new album is full of songs like that: nine of them, to be exact, that deal in themes of heartbreak, loyalty and the amazing power that comes with finding your own voice —and using it. "This record is probably the most personal thing that I've put out," says Witt, who released a self-titled EP in 2009 and the full-length Live at Rockwood in 2012, in between parts in films and on TV in an acting career that began with her debut in the David Lynch sci-fi classic Dune in 1984, when she was 7.

Women's Lacrosse - LIU Post vs. New York Institute of Technology - LIU Post April 21, 2018 - Brookville

No one better described the half-starved, struggling artists of mid-nineteenth century Paris than the writer Henri Murger in Scènes de la Vie de Bohème. These bohemian artists are ready to burn a manuscript to try to keep warm yet, in an era of triumphant bourgeois materialism, they dream of another existence. Taking up these scenes of Bohemian life, Puccini offers us a heart-breaking love story and some of the most beautiful music in the history of opera, telling the story of the poet Rodolfo and the fragile Mimi. The staging of this new production has been entrusted to Claus Guth, who sets the drama in a future devoid of hope, in which love and art become the sole means of transcendence.

Paul Weinfield is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist whose intricate, lyrical songs have been hailed by No Depression Magazine as "unafraid of musical boundaries." He is currently working on a rock opera with his newest project, Fairytales for the Fatherless.

Enj? (Conflagration). 1958. Directed By Kon Ichikawa - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 21, 2018 - Manhattan

Enj? (Conflagration). 1958. Japan. Directed by Kon Ichikawa. Screenplay by Ichikawa, Keiji Hasebe, based on the novel by Yukio Mishima. With Raizo Ichikawa, Tatsuya Nakadai, Ganjiro Nakamura. In Japanese; English subtitles. 99 min. Kon Ichikawa transformed one of Japan's most important 20th-century novels into one of its greatest films, about a sensational incident that occurred in 1950 when a tormented young acolyte burned Kyoto's ancient Zen temple of the Golden Pavilion to the ground in an ecstatic act of vengeful jealousy. Donald Richie marveled at the film's "frightening schizoid beauty," noting how Miyagawa's widescreen, deep-focus cinematography and Toshiro Mayuzumi's haunting, incantatory music captured the aesthetic objectivity of Yukio Mishima's writing. 35mm print from The Japan Foundation; courtesy Janus Films.

Ot?to (Her Brother). 1960. Directed By Kon Ichikawa - The Museum of Modern Art Through April 21, 2018 - Manhattan

Ot?to (Her Brother). 1960. Japan. Directed by Kon Ichikawa. Screenplay by Yoko Mizuki. With Keiko Kishi, Hiroshi Kawaguchi, Kinuyo Tanaka. In Japanese; English subtitles. 98 min. Chosen by the prestigious magazine Kinema Jumpo as the best film of 1960, and still adored by Japanese audiences, Ichikawa's Her Brother is a tender melodrama about a lonely young woman pressured by her severe, ailing stepmother into sacrificing herself to the needs of her profligate brother. To capture the melancholy, dusky atmosphere of the Taisho period, a time of uncertainty between the two World Wars, cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa pioneered a (now common) technique called gin-nokoshi ("leaving silver") that accentuated gray, muted color tones through black-and-white lighting. 35mm print from The Museum of Modern Art; courtesy Janus Films.

Phony Ppl either crash-landed from the past or the future: critics and fans can't decide. Since throwing warehouse shows around New York in 2011, the five Brooklyn natives have tossed together vintage astral funk, soulful complex R&B, and dusted-out hip-hop which evokes a newfound genre-less form of music originating in the basement of a Bedford-Stuyvesant home studio where the band begin making music together in high school. Co-founded by lead vocalist Elbee Thrie and keyboardist Aja Grant, whose brother Bari is the bassist, the band self-released hits like "Why iii Love the Moon" which is featured in EA Sports' NBA Live 16 and "End of the Night," and was praised by none other than Tyler the Creator as one of his favorite songs of 2016. The dynamic quintet also features Elijah Rawk on guitar and drummer Matthew Byas. Together they have been direct support on tours with like-minded experimental performers Theophilus London, Erykah Badu and The Roots. Their most recent effort, 2015's "Yesterday's Tomorrow" gained rotation on BBC1 and Odd Future Radio, and the L.A. Times applauded it's "meteoric rise" via social media, with the album peaking at #6 on the iTunes R&B chart. The band is releasing a new, and as of now untitled, follow up LP in 2018.

The gifted, but humble Jazz trumpet player, Rick Braun, is consistently on the top of the charts. With his collection of No. 1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz charters and his radio hits during his solo career, it's no wonder why. Combining forces with saxophonist Richard Elliot, they created a new record called RnR, which cleverly stands for R(est) (a)n(d) R(elaxation). Some of these songs include: "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," "Curve Ball," "Sunday Night," "Que Paso," and "Da JR Funk." Just like the album's namesake, RnR is all about leisure. With great performances emanating from both Braun and Elliot, RnR is exciting and lively, yet warm, sexy, and mellow. It is in this experimental way that you begin to grasp the depth of their combined signature sounds and the impact it will have on their devoted and new fans alike.

Saturday, April 21st ISSUE is pleased to present an evening with pioneering composer David Behrman in collaboration with fiddler, improviser, and composer Cleek Schrey. Together, the two perform newly-developing situations: re-worked pieces from the past, embedded Appalachian fiddle tunes, and new compositions. "Over the decades, I've had the feeling that a great door had just swung open for the first time, inviting artists in to a new way of exploring music possibilities," the composer, producer, and innovator David Behrman once said. "The first time was in the early '60s, at the moment when transistors first became available." Indeed, Behrman was there at the dawn of electronic music, helping to pioneer the tones, techniques, and processes that changed the way that music is made, perceived, and heard. Raised in an artistic family, Behrman had studied the rigors of traditional classical music, writing, and copying out parts in the customary manner. But he suddenly found himself swept into a sea change, part of the essential tide that included the likes of David Tudor, John Cage, Alvin Lucier, and Pauline Oliveros. He performed at the ONCE festivals, co-founded the Sonic Arts Union, and produced Columbia's pivotal new music series, 'Music of Our Time.' Meanwhile, he developed compositional systems in which circuits and performers interacted in real time, a monumental step in the history of composition.

RnR with Rick Braun and Richard Elliot - Madison Theatre at Molloy College April 21, 2018 - Rockville Centre

 The gifted, but humble Jazz trumpet player, Rick Braun, is consistently on the top of the charts. With his collection of No. 1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz charters and his radio hits during his solo career, it’s no wonder why. Combining forces with saxophonist Richard Elliot, they created a new record called RnR, which cleverly stands for R(est) (a)n(d) R(elaxation). Some of these songs include: “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Curve Ball,” “Sunday Night,” “Que Paso,” and “Da JR Funk.” Just like the album’s namesake, RnR is all about leisure. With great performances emanating from both Braun and Elliot, RnR is exciting and lively, yet warm, sexy, and mellow. It is in this experimental way that you begin to grasp the depth of their combined signature sounds and the impact it will have on their devoted and new fans alike.

"Tinder LIVE! is truly addictive entertainment…[it's] ingenious. Moore transforms the banter on a dating app into compelling long-form improvisation. Ms. Moore, a cagey and humane performer, has developed an instinct for turning the raw materials of sexually charged chat with ordinary strangers into honed and generous jokes. "Tinder Live" has a comic momentum and energy that is unusual. The way she manipulates tone and pace reveals an artist supremely confident in her form, not to mention a flirt par excellence." -- The New York Times. Tinder Live has been named one of the best comedy shows in NYC for good reason. Produced and hosted by comedian Lane Moore (The Onion, HBO's GIRLS, Brooklyn Magazine's "50 Funniest People In Brooklyn," former Cosmopolitan Magazine sex & relationships editor), Tinder Live is a totally improvised, anything-can-happen interactive comedy showstopper with helpful and oftentimes ridiculous Tinder tips, tricks, real-time swiping, and messaging (and sometimes even real-time phone calls with Tinder matches)! You'll relate to Moore's live-swiping and laugh at her reactions and find inspiration in her ridiculous, random emoji-filled messages (and sometimes even phone calls!) to would-be suitors. It's also a great show to attend with a date, Tinder or otherwise. If you've ever been on an online dating site (or a bad date in general), you need to see this show.

You know what makes a film about decapitation and cannibalism even better? Singing. Don't waste your opportunity to wail about the worst pies in London, or croon along to Joanna as you watch your favorite characters become tasty meat pies in this musical classic. (Them pussy cats is quick!)

Our everyday relationship with time became a subject of artistic investigation with the emergence of the Fluxus art movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Fluxus grew to involve an international and interdisciplinary group of artists, including Yoko Ono, Joseph Beuys, and Nam June Paik creating time-based artworks. The movement's deep connection to the American Zen Buddhist movement was helped through influential figures like John Cage, who believed one should embark on an artwork without a conception of its end. One might argue these Fluxus concepts are also found within the Tibetan Buddhist rituals of sand mandala and butter sculpture, which through their creation disrupt the same tendency to cling to time and identity. The impermanence and non-attachment these activities promote make their creation and destruction equally important.

An inspiring children’s storytime on Saturday, April 21st as author Aura Lewis reads Gloria’s Voice. Gloria Steinem started a movement that changed our world. This picture-book biography of the pioneering feminist brings the message of equality to a new generation.

Following her from childhood through her political awakening and beyond, Gloria’s Voice explains Steinem’s motivations and beliefs, as well as the obstacles she faced in fighting for women’s rights. Throughout, debut author and artist Aura Lewis highlights Gloria’s message of equality and the importance of believing in oneself.

After an unforgettable New York debut in October, LA drag sensation LOVE CONNIE (aka JOHN CANTWELL, of The Nellie Olesons) returns to Laurie Beechman Theater with the premiere of LOVE CONNIE: FADE TO CONNIE. What separates Cantwell's LOVE CONNIE from other drag queens is that Connie Slocum communicates solely through lip-sync and dance. Connie delivers higher high kicks than a seasoned Rockette, air guitar & keyboards that would make a stoner jealous, and enough costume changes to make Cher put a hit out on her. Like the love child of Iggy Pop & Ann-Margret, Connie will leave you wet and satiated after her hour-long performance. FADE TO CONNIE is a thoroughly exhilarating, triumphant tribute to 70's cinema classics including The Eyes Of Laura Mars, Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, Airport '75, Saturday Night Fever and Jaws cleverly choreographed by Robin Carrigan and directed by Jim Fall (Trick). These nearly wordless stories told through dance & mime are equal parts playful drag musicals and performance art. The secret weapon in FACE TO CONNIE's feast for the eyes and ears is the unique psychedelic backdrop of films and hit music spliced together by top sound and video editor Zig Gron (The Matrix, The Bourne Supremacy).

No stranger to the east coast music scene, Texas-bred and Cape Cod washashore, Monica Rizzio is emerging as one of the finest singer songwriters that call New England home. For over 10 years she played fiddle and sang with Tripping Lily, a folk acoustic pop band, who toured up and down the east coast. Drawing on her East Texas roots, Monica and her Martin, brought back the the little girl who loved to barrel race on her horse Bo, and she found her outlaw country sound deep within the folk world. Her debut album, aptly named, "Washashore Cowgirl" is completely autobiographical, often times delivered in a fictional approach, sometimes with humor, and sometimes so strikingly honest you can feel the pain in her voice. The album is a testament to the relationships she has forged with many artists over the years and features Mark Erelli, Sierra Hull, Abbie Gardner & Molly Venter of Red Molly, G. Love, Tim Chaisson, Brittany Haas, and Laney Jones. Washashore Cowgirl was released to much critical acclaim in 2016.

The Bronx faces a serious and growing opioid crisis. We see its consequences in the rates of addiction, overdoses, and deaths across the borough. This is a complex health, economic, and social issue with devastating consequences for individuals, families, and communities. The growing number of overdoses and deaths caused by opioids, including fentanyl, has become a city-wide and indeed a national concern. Solutions must be compassionate and collaborative, and address both the immediate crisis of overdose and death as well as their root causes.

Beacon based acoustic instrumental group, pulling from bluegrass, new grass, old time, jazz, Balkan, Swedish and more! Out on a Limb Band was formed by Bob Totz and Steve Glazer. The idea started in Fall of 2012, when we started thinking about a bass player....hmmm....tuba? upright bass? electric bass? In January, I was very sick with the flu and a high fever. During a fever dream, I saw Erin Smith playing upright bass, even though she was a fiddle player, not a bass player. When we asked Erin if she would like to play bass with us, she decided to give it a try. (That's why Erin is our "dream girl!"). Rick decided to play mandolin with us too, and also Robin Russell joined on accordion. Within a year, we had a pretty good band, with Erin constantly improving on upright bass. Robin moved north, and we had a good quartet. Two years later, Melissa joined us on banjo, clarinet and vocals. Bob left in August 2017 for health reasons, but still loves the band!

Attention to style and structure is very important to the writer of tiny fictions, just as it is to poets. That's why flash fiction and prose poetry are often described as borderline genres (between poetry and prose). In this class, you will write five poetic stories or narrative prose poems. Instead of working with the line, we will be working with the sentence and the paragraph. There will be assignments and examples from published writing and some theory. Assignments may include: auto-flash fiction, camera eye, long sentence, day dream story, sestina story, retelling and telling, story as list, etc. We will read tiny stories from writers such as: Lydia Davis, Fielding Dawson, Marcel Proust, Roberto Bolano, Gisèle Prassinos, Richard Brautigan, Laura Riding, Robert Walser, Julio Cortazar, Dale Herd, Clarice Lispector, and Jamaica Kincaid. We will enter into the writing through technique, constraints and forms typically used for writing poetry. In this way, perhaps the unexpected will occur: a story you didn't know you were going to write. Most of the class will be spent as a workshop responding to your writing. Barbara Henning is a poet and a fiction writer. She has published three novels and numerous books of poetry, including her most recent, A Day Like Today (Negative Capability Press 2015). A novel, Just Like That, is forthcoming from Spuyten Duyvil. Barbara has taught workshops for Poets House, The Poetry Project, The Poetry Center (Tucson), and many other organizations.

Martin Sexton's new album Mixtape of the Open Road is that musical cross-country trip, blazing through all territories of style, as you cruise through time and place.

Uninterested in the music of the day, he fueled his dreams with the timeless sounds of classic rock 'n' roll. As he discovered the dusty old vinyl left in the basement by one his big brothers, his musical fire was lit. Sexton eventually migrated to Boston, where he began to build a following singing on the streets of Harvard Square, gradually working his way through the scene. His 1992 collection of self-produced demo recordings, In the Journey, was recorded on an old 8-track in a friend's attic. He managed to sell 20,000 copies out of his guitar case.

"Rock 'n' roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that it's remarkable the two don't fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers." – The New York Times.Discovered by legendary record executive Clive Davis, vocalist, songwriter, and saxophonist Curtis Stigers debut album sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide on the strength of self-penned hit singles like "I Wonder Why," "You're All That Matters to Me," and "Never Saw a Miracle." A year later, Stigers cover of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understanding" for The Bodyguard Soundtrack sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Further collaborations with Carole King, Al Green, Shawn Colvin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart — as well as multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, The Today Show, etc. — put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. With One More for the Road, and Hooray For Love, his latest releases for the Concord Jazz label, Stigers continues to fulfill a promise made to a younger version of himself: a commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook.

Born in La Plata, Argentina, Osvaldo Bacman grew up across the street from the local university's School of Fine Art, which would become a second home for him throughout his childhood and teenage years. There, he studied drawing and painting. In the 1970s he relocated to Cologne, Germany with his family, opening an art studio on the Rhine that he occupies to this day. Bacman was interested in three-dimensional art early in his career, manipulating wood and acrylic-painted foam boards to create what he refers to as "concrete structures." However, over the past few years, Bacman has delved into the history of ornamentation, a diverse form of expression used in some form by nearly every culture in the world. These studies have led him to work with watercolor pencils, a method that has leant itself well to his vibrant, multi-colored, and geometrically complex works. For Bacman, art has an inherently positive quality that combats the evils of the world; it is a true force for good. His Geometric abstraction, through its dynamism and its vitality, offers the possibility of a dialogue between the artwork and the observer, thus stimulating an aesthetic and intellectual interpretation for each individual.

ArtExpo 2018 Through his energetic sculptures, Attila Mata conjures a world of power, agency, and dynamism within geometric structure and variations in media. His oeuvre encompasses a vast array of materials, including but not limited to wood, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and acrylic resin. Inspired by ancient themes such as sexuality, death, and primal deities, Mata's sculptures appear to writhe and change as the viewer circumambulates each work. Each sculpture commands singular authority; for example, in Female Torso (2013), Mata reduces the female form nearly to abstraction while alternating between stainless steel and bronze throughout the piece. Salient angles, clean lines, and geometric forms twist and curl around each other in a nearly austere manner. Mata's women are unapologetic, auspicious, and emanate sovereignty and agency from his audience. While Female Torso's structure appears somewhat fragmented, works such as Love demonstrate an organic fluidity of motion and negative space as turquoise tinted pipettes of bronze twirl and dance around each other with no clear beginning or end. The artist currently resides in Hungary.

Romantic and refined, the work of Gabriela Segura updates the tradition of using photography as a means of transforming reality. Segura photographs the world in rich color and soft focus. She explains that her driving inspiration is the realization that "the world is full of wonders." To that end, Segura does not limit her subject matter to a single area. She photographs nature in thrilling close-up: flower blossoms, birds' wings, tree leaves, everything depicted to best show off the delicate textures and rich colors. She portrays landscapes as new worlds bursting with promise, and manmade spaces as full of history, with a thousand open-ended narratives possible within the frame. She even delves into abstracts using shadow, color, and line in unexpected places. Segura was born in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Presented by Clocktower Players Teen Troupe, this "musical within a comedy" with its inspired collection of zany characters, its droll and witty book, and genuine affection for what makes musicals so much fun provides all the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight. When a die-hard theatre fan, Man in Chair, plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this musical farce. Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score.

ArtExpo 2018 Self taught painter Yu He's acrylic still lifes and landscapes capture everyday scenes with an expressive palette and painterly brushwork. Born in China and living in the United States, the artist's abstracted compositions offer a playful take on traditional subject matter. She tilts the perspective, eliminates detail, and blurs background and foreground in her works, creating a whimsical effect that challenges the connotations of still life painting. The artist's Still Life No. 579 and Still Life No. 577 depict a typical tablescape with loose, quick brushstrokes, the cool, blue palette lending a sense of calm to the images. Meanwhile, Still Life No. 498, Still Life No. 502, and Still Life No. 575 each image a combination of fruits, flowers, and tableware portrayed with thickly painted turquoise, auburn, and yellow strokes. Horizon lines and fine details are excluded from these works, allowing teacups, blooms, and vases to float in imaginative, richly pigmented environments. Finally, Seaside. Evening No. 372 captures a peachy pink and aqua sunset, the brilliant twilight sky mirrored in the calm waters.

ArtExpo 2018 With an ever-changing combination of paints, Patricia Queiruga builds work that ranges from abstract to figurative, but remains reliably organic. In each of the artist's works, paint builds, drizzles, and drips into shape. The movement of the material on the canvas and the artist's action in making the work is always visible. In some works vibrant streaks of red or yellow burst through the composition. Inspired by music, Queiruga makes energetic choices in acrylic, oil, and mixed media, translating the exciting notes into a visual practice. Sharply cutting across one another or carefully blended together in the background, the colors and treatments combine with Queiruga's impulsive choices to form artworks full of emotion and spontaneity. Working freely, Queiruga explores each avenue of interest, whether an elephant or an abstract concept, with versatility and an expressionistic perspective. Born in the city of Córdoba, Patricia Queiruga lives and works in Argentina. The artist incorporates varied influences into each work, sometimes using painting as a means of pure expression while also occasionally highlighting societal issues like human trafficking through paint.

In Georges de Groot's paintings, a childlike spirit and a bold approach to color and texture are combined. Working in acrylics on canvas, he creates a world in which whimsical characters are placed in vivid abstract settings. Aiming for what he calls "a contrasting explosion of shapes, depths and colors," de Groot employs his dynamic brushwork to strong effect, giving each color and figure an active, vital presence. Colors overlap in rough combinations that call collage or street art to mind, but there is always an inherent balance and harmony that reveal the artist's finely tuned visual sense. The powerful lines in his compositions give them an iconic depth that contrasts with what initially appears to be their lighthearted nature. "My inspirations come from my life experience," he says, "things like childhood stories, the monsters and fairies that inhabited the books I read and the tough times of my life." Those inspirations are reflected in the interaction of moods and tones in his works, resulting in a complex experience for the viewer. The artist lives and works in the Netherlands.

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

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

Over the course of a stellar career that has spanned more than 30 years, saxophonist Kenny Garrett has become the preeminent alto saxophonist of his generation. From his first gig with the Duke Ellington Orchestra (led by Mercer Ellington) through his time spent with musicians such as Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis, Garrett has always brought a vigorous yet melodic, and truly distinctive, alto saxophone sound to each musical situation. As a bandleader for the last two decades, he has also continually grown as a composer. With his latest recording (and second for Mack Avenue Records), Seeds From The Underground, Garrett has given notice that these qualities have not only become more impressive, but have provided him with the platform to expand his horizons and communicate his musical vision clearly. Seeds From The Underground is a powerful return to the straight-ahead, acoustic and propulsive quartet format that showcases Garrett's extraordinary abilities. For Garrett, Seeds From The Underground is a special recording. It once again consists of all original compositions, and is truly an homage to those who have inspired and influenced him, both personally and musically. "All of these songs are dedicated to someone," says Garrett. "And the 'seeds' have been planted, directly or indirectly, by people who have been instrumental in my development." With Seeds From The Underground Garrett has crafted a project that offers his appreciation while always making the listener aware of his band's skillful approach to melody, harmony and rhythm. From personal nods such as the opening track "Boogety Boogety," dedicated to his memory of watching western films with his father (the title refers to the sound of a galloping horse); "Wiggins," which references his high school band director Bill Wiggins; and "Detroit," an evocative, reflective composition about his hometown, and a celebration of mentor Marcus Belgrave; to his appreciation of some of his musical heroes on "J Mac" (Jackie McLean); "Haynes Here" (Roy Haynes); and "Do Wo Mo" (Duke Ellington, Woody Shaw and Thelonious Monk). Melody, as a matter of fact, was a key element for the saxophonist when writing for the recording. "I wanted to focus on the melody," Garrett reflects. "I want people to remember what the melody is before we start improvising…and on some songs I heard voices, the singing of the melody." This latter point is in evidence on the selections "Haynes Here," "Detroit" and "Welcome Earth Song."

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

Dance Adelphi: Play Ball! - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center Through April 22, 2018 - Garden City

Players pirouette, catchers chasse, and umpires arabesque in Play Ball!, Christopher Fleming’s comedic ballet imagining an exhibition game between the 1940s Adelphi Bulls and their pioneering female counterparts, the Garden City Dolls. Fusing baseball and ballet in a delightful display of dance, Play Ball! is a fun and unusual way for everyone to celebrate these early days of baseball season. The Dance Adelphi production runs from April 18-22 in the Olmsted Theatre in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. The comic ballet is divided into nine “innings” set to familiar classical melodies from “Carmen,” “Swan Lake” and other classics demonstrating the excitement of a pitch, the suspense of stealing bases, and more. In setting out to tell an American story through ballet, Play Ball! pays homage to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League of the 1940s, when women were recruited to take up America’s national pastime as the male players were drafted for World War II. Choreographer Christopher Fleming nurtured a childhood affection for baseball, and his search for an American story to tell through ballet brought the two together – especially as he noticed the ballet-like moves that so many baseball players naturally perform during a game. The release of the movie A League of Their Own helped shape the ballet’s narrative and overcome the challenge of telling what is often a male-dominated story through a female-dominated medium. Play Ball! was co-commissioned by the Dayton Ballet and the Ohio Ballet and premiered in Dayton in 2000. Excerpts have been performed at the Republican National Convention and the Philly Pops gala honoring the 20th anniversary of the Phillies’ World Series win. As a member of the New York City Ballet, Christopher Fleming danced principal roles and headed a group of soloists and principals which toured Europe with his choreography. Mr. Fleming has choreographed a variety of works appearing in the repertoire of a number of different companies. Included are traditional full-length works such as The Nutcracker (four different productions) and Romeo And Juliet (on three different companies) as well as original full-length works Gaspar and Dracula. His work has been performed Off-Broadway, around the United States and internationally. In 2010 Mr. Fleming founded the company BalletFleming, which made its debut with the critically acclaimed The Myth and the Madness of Edgar Allen Poe. BalletFleming’s repertoire has expanded to include numerous works by Mr. Fleming and has performed around the United States. The program will also include ballet and modern pieces by Frank Augustyn, Orion Duckstein and Adelheid B. Strelick.

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

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

ArtExpo 2018 Part photography and part sculpture, the remarkable work of American artist Howard Harris is nearly impossible to classify. Harris has said that his aim is to "combine technology and aesthetics in a way that expands the viewer's experience of photographic art." His unique way of image-making begins with a digital photograph. It is abstracted in some way - perhaps the colors are enhanced subtly, or the entire composition is skewed more overtly. Often the photograph is multiplied and layered onto itself, separated by sheets of clear acrylic. The resulting piece has unexpected depth and movement - the eye dances. Harris has truly found a way to make photography surprising again. The images he chooses to bring to life in this singular way vary greatly. His camera captures animals, architecture, landscapes, and portraiture. No matter what the subject matter, each image is depicted centrally, almost monumentally. Backgrounds and even shadows are stripped away. Harris was born in Denver, Colorado and today maintains his own home studio in Denver. He has exhibited extensively all around the United States.

Becky Sungja Kim paints dream-like landscapes in a restrained, tonal palette, simplifying forms to create colorful abstractions of the natural world. Her scenes depict lucid dreams and childhood memories with compositions ranging from idyllic pastoral scenes to hazy, fantastical vistas. Stripped to their essentials, Kim's paintings reveal our emotional ties to landscapes, both real and imagined. In works such as The Homeland, Field in Virginia, and Greeting Santa Fe, Kim images the splendor of nature with the quick, expressive dabs and strokes typified by plein air painting. Indeed, the artist frequently paints the play of light in the natural world rather than the shapes composing the landscape, imbuing her works with subjectivity. Oil paintings including Cool Breeze and Ginkgo Tree depict a more illusory world in which trees take on an independent character or spirit. Naturalism is eschewed and fantasy is embraced in these simplistic works that imagine the world with playful irreverence. Finally, in her painting Spring Rain, Kim strips all recognizable features from her composition, depicting only the elusive, soaking, enveloping sensation of a downpour. Becky Kim grew up in South Korea and lives in northern Virginia near Washington, D.C.

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

The conflicts of the 21st century world are the subject of Mr. Sajja Sajjakul's paintings. The artist sees himself as "an observer and critic," and his detailed images document the destruction of nature and the collapse of traditional ways of life that portray society and political injustices, cultural conflict and pressure which modern life demands of us. In his paintings, objects and people from different eras and levels of existence are brought together in scenes that seem to take place outside any average conception of time. The inner world of dreams and cultural memory is made to contend with a dystopian environment that threatens to overwhelm it. Working in oils on canvas, he uses the rich tones that oils provide to give his paintings a strong physical presence. That presence is enhanced by his skill at rendering lifelike figures and his sharp eye for manipulating proportion and scale, which often creates a sense of threat or uncertainty. The resulting works transform standard notions of realism into a uniquely expressive form. "I try to reach beyond the borders—language, religions or traditions," he says, and his paintings realize that goal. The artist lives and works in Thailand.

ArtExpo 2018 Sergey Klychkov's paintings are both whimsical and profound, studious and spontaneous. Focusing mainly on portraiture, Klychkov is especially skilled at delineating the expressive details of the human face. While preferencing fine art over illustration, his paintings nevertheless suggest narratives. This comes most to light when his work portrays cartoonishly mismatched juxtapositions of phenomena in fantastical landscapes, implying roots in a highly-developed fictional history. In The Moons (2015), Klychkov's use of oil paints lends his subject a folkloric aspect. Portraying a lunar fantasia, two female nudes are seated atop the roofs of houses, while two more fly in air. A fifth female figure rides on a purple horse through in the center of the scene. The warped spatial distortion of the figures' limbs, as well as the houses, give the image a dionysian feel, while Klychkov's color palette blankets this energy in an ashen-hued tranquility. While verging on the illustrative, the viewer can only imagine the backstory behind such a work. Taken in by the almost littoral calm of the painting, the viewer might feel caught up in the same insouciance with which the two women loll on a nightime roof.

Hamilton is the story of the unlikely Founding Father determined to make his mark on the new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. From bastard orphan to Washington's right-hand man, rebel to war hero, a loving husband caught in the country's first sex scandal, to the Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton's lifelong friend/foil Aaron Burr all make their mark in this astonishing new musical exploration of a political mastermind.

ArtExpo 2018 Maribel Matthews' illustrious oeuvre harmoniously captures the joy within the world that surrounds her. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, Matthews' paintings capture a variety of themes, including but not limited to idyllic landscape scenes, still lifes, portraiture, as well as abstract canvases. The artist's palette mirrors her Mediterranean background as bright, bold jewel tones adorn her compositions, inviting the viewer into her jubilant and festive domain. Crisp lines and thick, nearly impressionistic brushstrokes characterize the majority of Matthews' more naturalistic paintings, while her abstract works, unencumbered by the boundaries of line and shape, emanate a similar, joyful exuberance. In works such as Orchids, a vase full of the violet flowers rests upon a deep plum background. The orchids are composed of crisp lines, organic shapes and contrasted by their radiant, chartreuse leaves. They playfully present themselves to the viewer, some with agape, blossoming leaves, some bashfully hiding behind their counterparts. Bulbous, ripened peaches litter the foreground of the composition, enfolding among the flowers in a congenial promenade. The artist currently resides in Gibraltar.

Rebecca Rath's large scale charcoal & pastel drawings on paper feature natural landscapes, birds, shells and sacred totems in various states of life and regeneration. Evoking a sense of 'what lies beneath,' Rath's luminous mountain ridges, pastoral skies and golden fields of grain are at once somber and pastoral. In a style reminiscent of Georgia O'Keefe, these compositions of sky and earth speak to cultural and geographical memory. Reconsidering the nature/culture divide, Rath's approach is informed by Eastern and Aboriginal ideas concerning the holistic unity of all life forms. Painting in a luscious and representational style, Rath often embeds objects imbued with personal narrative into the work. Responding to the sometimes challenging conditions in her region of New South Wales, her work is about the fragile, beautiful and transient cohabitation of humans and animals in local environments. Rebecca Rath was born 1974 in Sydney, Australia. She has a BFA Honors from the University of New South Wales and currently lives and works in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley, New South Wales.

They've become one of Brooklyn's freshest exports - nine charismatic men and women brightly outfitted to have their colorful nature match their expressive voice. Turkuaz is a rock band at its core that blends soulful sounds with potent funk grooves.

Drawing from the conventions that have ignited their existence and using that spark to forge its own sword, Turkuaz is a band that will make anyone move to their familiar beat, yet stay intrigued by an ability to explore its own complex character comprised of nine striking personalities.

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

Nai-Ni Chen performs A Quest for Freedom at NextMove Dance Festival - Prince Theater Through April 22, 2018 - Philadelphia

Nai-Ni Chen to Perform A Quest for Freedom at NextMove Dance Festival April 19-22, 2018 In this 2018 Women's History Month of March, NJPAC will premiere Nai-Ni Chen's latest collaboration with the world renowned Ahn Trio in a new, groundbreaking dance production, A Quest for Freedom. A program that highlights the hope and quest for freedom in every aspects of the artist's life and only highlighted by the current societal, national, international and historical debate around immigration. Following the NJPAC premiere, the new work will premiere at Philadelphia's NextMove Dance Festival from Fri-Sun, April 19, 20, 21, 22, 2018 at the Prince Theatre.   Originally inspired by Ahn Trio's adaptation of David Bowie's Space Oddity and the their performance of the Trio's version of Purple Rain by Prince on Ellis Island's Great Hall of Immigration, Nai-Ni Chen continued to work with the Trio throughout 2017 to find their common vision, exploring their common roots as Asian American immigrants, and as women artists developing innovative work in America.  Their collaboration is enhanced by the work of visual artist Jayathi Moorthy, who brings a contemporary, visual artist perspective to the project.   The new production will feature new music created especially for Nai-Ni Chen, Concrete Stream as well as Night Flight by Kenji Bunch, Insensatez by Astor Piazzola and popular music adaptations for classical instruments by David Bowie and Prince.  For each of these music, Nai-Ni Chen created new dances titled:  I want to Fly, Liberation, Lonely Man, A Forgotten Past, and My Flower Garden, each dance explores part of her journey as an immigrant woman artist who view freedom from different lances here in America.  Lighting Designer Yi-Chung Chen, Visual Designer Jayanthi Moorthy and Costume Designer Ann-Alisa Belous are all deeply involved in the making of the production.   About A Quest for Freedom An empowering evening of music and dance, A Quest for Freedom is a music and dance collaboration between the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company and the world renowned Ahn Trio. The athletic physicality of seven exquisite dancers, mesmerizing choreography of Nai-Ni Chen combined with the virtuosity of the Ahn Trio are integrated seamlessly throughout the program.   In this production, the Ahn Trio performs their most popular and engaging music, including their sassy, classical version of Purple Rain by the Prince, Space Oddity by David Bowie, Night Flight by Kenji Bunch, among others. The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company also commissioned new music from composer Kenji Bunch. Concrete Stream with passages that allow dancers to interact with musicians.   About Concrete Stream Composer's notes "Concrete Stream" usually refers to an artificial trickle of water in a backyard garden- essentially an elaborate home improvement project. Perhaps a more poetic interpretation of the term could suggest the paradox between the organic and man-made; the struggle for the existence of fluidity and natural beauty in an urban, industrial context. This work explores these two conflicting concepts, by incorporating elements of "floating" melody, free from traditionally notated rhythms, juxtaposed with the insistent inflexibility of repetitive motives. -Kenji Bunch About The Ahn Trio Hailed as "exciting musicians" with virtuosity and flair, the three sisters of the Ahn Trio (Lucia on the piano, Angella on the violin and Maria on the cello) have embraced 21st century classical music while redefining the art of chamber music. Born in Seoul, Korea and educated at the Julliard School in New York City, the Ahn Trio brings a new energy and an ever evolving vision of music to the performance stage, whether it be Vienna's Musikverein, New York's Lincoln Center, Beijing's Concert Hall or The White House. In this innovative collaboration with Asian-American choreographer, Nai Ni Chen, the world-class dance company and trio are immersed in the visual element of the pieces, creating a mesmerizing blend of music and dance of sheer aural and visual beauty.   About the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company Bringing the dynamic freedom of American modern dance together with the elegant splendor of Asian art, the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company is one of the most visible Asian American dance companies in America.  Ms. Chen's unique choreography transports audiences beyond cultural boundaries to the common ground between tradition and innovation, rising beyond form into the  spirit.    One of the few Asian American professional dance companies with an extensive season of touring and performing around the world, Nai-Ni Chen has also developed Arts in Education residency programs in school districts to bring culture and arts into educational settings.  Its colorful and engaging programs and workshops have reached over one million young audience members in the NY/NJ area. The Company is currently in residence at New Jersey City University and has been a Principal Affiliate of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center since its inception.

Dance Adelphi: Play Ball! from April 18 - 22 - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center Through April 22, 2018 - Garden City

Players pirouette, catchers chasse, and umpires arabesque in Play Ball!, Christopher Fleming’s comedic ballet imagining an exhibition game between the 1940s Adelphi Bulls and their pioneering female counterparts, the Garden City Dolls. Fusing baseball and ballet in a delightful display of dance, Play Ball! is a fun and unusual way for everyone to celebrate these early days of baseball season. The Dance Adelphi production runs from April 18-22 in the Olmsted Theatre in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. The comic ballet is divided into nine “innings” set to familiar classical melodies from “Carmen,” “Swan Lake” and other classics demonstrating the excitement of a pitch, the suspense of stealing bases, and more. In setting out to tell an American story through ballet, Play Ball! pays homage to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League of the 1940s, when women were recruited to take up America’s national pastime as the male players were drafted for World War II. Choreographer Christopher Fleming nurtured a childhood affection for baseball, and his search for an American story to tell through ballet brought the two together – especially as he noticed the ballet-like moves that so many baseball players naturally perform during a game. The release of the movie A League of Their Own helped shape the ballet’s narrative and overcome the challenge of telling what is often a male-dominated story through a female-dominated medium. Play Ball! was co-commissioned by the Dayton Ballet and the Ohio Ballet and premiered in Dayton in 2000. Excerpts have been performed at the Republican National Convention and the Philly Pops gala honoring the 20th anniversary of the Phillies’ World Series win. As a member of the New York City Ballet, Christopher Fleming danced principal roles and headed a group of soloists and principals which toured Europe with his choreography. Mr. Fleming has choreographed a variety of works appearing in the repertoire of a number of different companies. Included are traditional full-length works such as The Nutcracker (four different productions) and Romeo And Juliet (on three different companies) as well as original full-length works Gaspar and Dracula. His work has been performed Off-Broadway, around the United States and internationally. In 2010 Mr. Fleming founded the company BalletFleming, which made its debut with the critically acclaimed The Myth and the Madness of Edgar Allen Poe. BalletFleming’s repertoire has expanded to include numerous works by Mr. Fleming and has performed around the United States. The program will also include ballet and modern pieces by Frank Augustyn, Orion Duckstein and Adelheid B. Strelick.

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.

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

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

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

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

his ember state is a voice and sound performance work created by Samita Sinha in collaboration with Dean Moss and Cenk Ergün. This Asia Society commission was created in residency at Asia Society Museum and is presented in an intimate gallery setting with a maximum capacity of 25 people per performance. This performance contains nudity and is not suitable for children. According to artist Samita Sinha: This ember state takes Indian classical music apart through the pussy – as a source of sound and silence, and knowledge of life and death – to create an abstract sonic, enfleshed language. Using the myth of the self-immolating Hindu goddess Sati and the idea of dark matter, the work sculpts and dissolves forms at the physical and psychic border between inside and outside, creating openings with and for the audience.

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

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

City Music is an airplane descending over frozen lakes into Chicago. City Music is riding the Q Train out to Coney Island to smell the ocean and a morning in Philadelphia where greats cranes reconfigure the buildings like an endless puzzle. City Music is a quiet afternoon moment on a bench in Baltimore, a highway in Seattle at night where the distant houses look like tiny flames and a bottle of red wine being drained on a bridge in Paris. City Music is a bus pulling into St. Louis at dawn where the arch looks like a metal rainbow reflecting the days early sunlight.... City Music is also the new album by Kevin Morby. Full of listless wanderlust, it's a collection inspired by and devoted to the metropolitan experience across America and beyond by a songwriter cast from his own mould. As he puts it: "It is a mix-tape, a fever dream, a love letter dedicated to those cities that I cannot get rid of, to those cities that are all inside of me." His fourth album, City Music works as a counterpart to Morby's acclaimed 2016 release Singing Saw, an autobiographical set that reflected the solitude and landscape in which it was recorded. It was imagined as "an old bookshelf with a young Bob and Joni staring back at me, blank and timeless. They live here, in this left side of my brain, smoking cigarettes and playing acoustic guitars while lying on an unmade bed." And now follows City Music, the yang to its yin, the heads to its tails. It is an collection crafted using the other side of its creator's brain, the jumping off point perhaps best once again encapsulated by an image. "Here, Lou Reed and Patti Smith stare out at the listener," explains Morby. "Stretched out on a living room floor they are somewhere in mid-70s Manhattan, also smoking cigarettes." It finds Morby exploring similar themes of solitude, but this time framed by a window of an uptown apartment that looks down upon an international urban landscape "exposed like a giant bleeding wound."

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

And it's about looking into the eyes of God.

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

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

Agora Gallery is pleased to present Horizons: Photographs by Donald Woodman, a focused exhibition featuring recent works by internationally recognized artist Donald Woodman. With a career spanning forty-five years, Woodman is an established large format photographer and has collaborated with and assisted artists such as architectural photographer Ezra Stoller, American photographer Minor White, and abstract painter Agnes Martin. Moving adeptly between commercial and fine arts photography, Woodman's unique combination of traditional and digital methods lends his work technical proficiency, formal refinement, and conceptual weight. His diverse subject matter, ranging from portraits and landscapes to probing examinations of masculinity and personal identity, remains consistently intimate, characterized by a subversive perspective and eccentric wit. Though Woodman has been an engrained figure in the international art world for decades, the artist has chosen to remain at the margins, living and working primarily in the American Southwest. Regarding this tendency, Woodman says, "For most of my career, New Mexico has provided me with a respite from some of the unbearable excesses of civilization. I have chosen to stay out of the limelight in order to preserve the freedom to pursue my personal vision." Aptly, Horizons is an exhibition of large-scale photographic prints capturing the vastness of the American Southwestern landscape. Focusing on the dramatic play of light on the horizon, Woodman's recent works posit the desert as a sanctuary. His reverence for the landscape is evidenced in these rich, lush photographs that highlight the unique and fragile ecology and question notions of limitless natural resources and boundless frontiers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tribute to Old Masters - Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America Through April 27, 2018 - New York

The Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences of America is pleased to announce a solo exhibition presenting artworks by the Australian-Polish artist Kamila Wojciechowicz. Opening reception: April 13, 2018, 6PM at 208 East 30th Street, New York, NY 10016; on view April 13-27, 2018. Open on: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am till 6:00 p.m. The show is titled “Tribute to Old Masters". “While creating my artworks, I was inspired greatly by old masters, such as Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, Diego Velázquez, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Petrus Christus and many other famous artists. I decided to combine certain elements from the past, such as intricate drawing and modern elements, such as saturated colours, into my art. Naturally, this doesn’t mean that I solely copied their works. Instead, I was trying to learn a certain set of skills from each great artist and implement them into my own works. My graphics primarily concern my passion for ballet, opera as well as depictions of heaven, hell and the garden of earthly delights. My works at present primarily concern the esoteric and mystic where I collaged mixed media subjects into shadow box mythological pieces that are almost small stage settings. They are meticulously detailed with strong drawing calling upon my knowledge of paintings by Bosch and Velazquez along with images reminiscent of medieval bestiaries.” Her art demonstrates passionate work in different media, such as graphics, collage and painting. All of them create an interesting sense of drama and complement each other. Kamila Wojciechowicz has been showing her works internationally e.g. Hong Kong, Italy, Germany, UK as well as in the U.S. Kamila Wojciechowicz hailed from Australia and Poland and received extensive artistic training in Europe, internationally-awarded, educated artistically in Warsaw and London, finalist of the Art Next Expo in Hong Kong 2017.

Danziger Gallery is pleased to announce our representation of the photographic estate of Antonio Lopez. The foremost fashion illustrator of the 1970s and 80s, Antonio (as he signed his work) was and remains one of the most highly regarded and influential figures in the fashion world. While not initially known as a photographer, Antonio was rarely without his favorite Instamatic camera, and as his career progressed he turned increasingly to photography to create fashion stories, portraits, and elaborate mise-en-scènes. This exhibition – the first to focus exclusively on Antonio's photographs - features a selection of the unique Instamatic prints from the 1970s that were his photographic form. Developed and printed by Kodak, these prints were either mounted by Antonio or stored in the original yellow Kodak envelopes that the film was processed and delivered in. As Antonio never sent the negatives back for re-printing each print is unique. While primarily known for his fashion illustrations, Antonio did not treat his photographs lightly, assembling them in grids and pairs to create dynamic and visceral patterns. While the prints may superficially resemble Andy Warhol's Polaroids because of their size and period, Antonio's Kodak prints are a burst of energy to Warhol's more classical studies. While Warhol's Polaroids were mostly the basis for future painted portraits, Antonio's photographs were an end to themselves.

Xiao Yu: Translocation Pace Gallery is pleased to present the latest solo exhibition by Chinese artist Xiao Yu with his new body of work in Beijing. Xiao Yu: Translocation will be on view from March 17 through April 28, 2018, with an opening reception held on Friday, March 16, from 4 to 6 p.m.

"Since our home base of Whitman Theatre will be closed for twelve months for much-needed structural repairs, the upcoming season will be presented in two alternative spaces, allowing us the opportunity to share more intimate arts experiences with our audience." The season opens on October 21, 2017 with the Tierney Sutton Band, presenting their 2017 GRAMMY® Award-nominated project The Sting Variations. Praised by The New York Times as "a pure jazz spirit," Ms. Sutton and her trio give fresh jazz interpretations to the repertoire of rock icon, Sting. Other jazz performances in the Kumble season include NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron (February 24, 2018), stepping away from his trio to present an evening of solo piano, and Brooklyn's own Alicia Olatuja (March 10, 2018), who first received national recognition for her soaring solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama's second inauguration. Actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty will revive his one-man-show Emergency during Black History Month (February 17-18, 2018), in which he portrays more than 40 characters. Having premiered in 2006 at The Public Theater (where it was titled Emergence-SEE!), this solo tour-de-force explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. The prestigious Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company returns for the fifth annual Lunar New Year Celebration, and Step Afrika! brings their "percussive spectacle" (The New York Times) back to Brooklyn Center. Finally, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated musicians of Los Pleneros de la 21 present a musical celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican holiday traditions with their family-friendly Christmas in El Barrio.

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

While Warhol's Polaroids were mostly the basis for future painted portraits, Antonio's photographs were an end to themselves. A serial Svengali, as the writer Karin Nelson noted: "Lopez brilliantly transformed the women in his world. Under his tutelage, Jerry Hall, a long tall Texan he met at Paris's Club Sept, evolved into a golden goddess. He put Jessica Lange in gold lamé evening dresses after discovering her in Paris studying mime, and gave aspiring model Tina Lutz her start (and an introduction to future husband Michael Chow); and, by spotlighting Pat Cleveland, a mixed-race model with a theatrical streak, he helped break down the color barrier in high fashion." Other favorite subjects were the young Grace Coddington, Grace Jones, and Paloma Picasso. Antonio Lopez was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico in 1943. His family moved to Spanish Harlem in 1950 where he showed early promise as an artist making drawings for his mother who was a seamstress and dressmaker. In the early 1960s he enrolled on a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York where he met Juan Ramos who became his life long collaborator. He joined The New York Times in 1963 but was soon freelancing for Harper's Bazaar, British Vogue and French Elle. In 1969 he moved to Paris with Ramos where he was commissioned by all the leading fashion magazines. He returned to New York in 1975 creating numerous covers and picture stories for Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine. Antonio died in Los Angeles 1987. He was forty four years old. A documentary "Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion, and Disco" is slated for release in the fall of 2018. Written, produced and directed by James Crump, the film covers his colorful and often outrageous milieu and features Jessica Lange, Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, Grace Coddington, Bob Colacello, Patti D'Arbanville, Karl Lagerfeld, Juan Ramos, Bill Cunningham, Yves Saint Laurent, Donna Jordan, Michael Chow, and Paul Caranicas, among others.

When she meets lonely Ryan, they make a connection that will shake their worlds forever. Playful, visual storytelling with a live electronic score about autism, friendship, and a very big wave.

Based on J.M. Barrie's iconic Peter Pan tales, Neverland: Peter Returns is the Swedish Cottage's spin on the beloved children's classic. Leaving their parents behind, the Darling children follow Peter Pan back home to Neverland for the adventure of a lifetime. When the cunning Captain Hook turns Peter's pals Tiger Lily and Tinker Bell against him, the children team up with the Never Boys to save the day, learning the value of forgiveness and friendship. Written by Adam Kilgour and directed by the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre's longtime Artistic Director, Bruce Cannon, Neverland: Peter Returns is a fresh take on the Swedish Cottage's original production, The Peter Pan Game, which debuted at the historic venue in 1974 and was reprised in 2001.

Based on a true story, Henry Schliemann, a wealthy entrepreneur, embarks on a rocky, twenty-year, epic journey to discover the ancient city of Troy. He uses Homer's Iliad as his guide and inspiration. But first, he marries Sophia Engastromenos, a Greek girl with a love for Homer. In his eyes, she is his Helen of Troy as he educates her to become an elite member of Parisian society. Their age difference, he forty seven and she seventeen, is a gulf he cannot bridge. Nevertheless, she becomes an equal partner. Overcoming skeptics, cynics, and scholars of ancient antiquities, he pours all his efforts and accumulated wealth into the quest. With the assistance of his undervalued partner, Frank Calvert knows the likely spot and points Schliemann on the right path. Schliemann, a Trump-like showman, and Calvert, an academic, clash throughout their involvement together on the best means to uncover the ancient city. Throughout their quest, significant figures from The Iliad appear – Achilles, Hector, Menelaus, King Priam and Helen herself – as ghosts that haunt and guide the three main characters as they pursue their search for the walls of Troy.

'The Number On Great-Grandpa's Arm' - Museum of Jewish Heritage Through April 29, 2018 - Battery Park City

A Living Memorial to the Holocaust that features an 18-minute film and original artwork created for the film by acclaimed artist Jeff Scher. When 10-year-old Elliott asks his 90-year-old great-grandfather, Jack, about the number tattooed on his arm, he sparks an intimate conversation about Jack’s life that spans happy memories of childhood in Poland, the loss of his family, surviving Auschwitz, and finding a new life in America. Elliot and Jack’s tender exchange is woven with historical footage and hand-painted animation to tell a heartbreaking story of Jewish life in Eastern Europe before and during the Holocaust. 

A miller’s daughter promises her first-born child to a creature by the name of Rumpelstiltskin in return for a favor. Years later this girl is now the Queen and the creature is holding her to her promise, unless she can guess his name.

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

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.

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

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

Ornaments and Other Refrigerator Magnets - Children's Museum of the Arts Through April 29, 2018 - Greenwich Village

Through her exploration of the human inclination to decorate, embellish, and adorn our surroundings, Ellen Harvey has created an immersive installation featuring large-scale works that apply ornamentation to scenes from both city life and nature.

Four extraordinary artists with roots around the world will create large-scale calligraphic paintings on the windows of the Winter Garden around the poetic theme of love. Artists from Iran, Japan, India and the United States will use words, letters, shapes and symbols from their respective languages and alphabets to explore the linguistic and artistic connections to calligraphy. Over two weeks the artists will produce a magnificent temporary art installation which the public can watch as it’s being crafted. Calligraphy is intrinsically linked to other art practices like poetry and music. As part of this immersive installation, there will be performances and workshops for the public to experience along with the visual installation. The art of connecting letters to meaning, feeling and expression, calligraphy has been an important characteristic of many cultures for eons. Modern calligraphy ranges from lettering to fine art where the artist uses personal interpretation, sometimes rendering the letters unreadable creating abstract shapes or gestural marks. As one artist finishes, the next artist will begin. At the end of the second week, the finished installation will show windows transformed into works of art and will be on view as an ecstatic display of the beauty of love through words, letters, art and symbols. ON LOVE: The Art of Lines, Shapes & Symbols is curated by Isabel Soffer/Live Sounds. ARTISTS Open artist hours run 11AM – 4PM on the following dates: 4/17 – 18: Mehdi Saeedi, Iran/USA 4/19 – 20: Masako Inkyo, Japan/USA 4/24 – 25: Rupy C. Tut, India/USA 4/26 – 27: Rostarr (Romon K. Yang), Korea/USA

FIT: Meditations from AmericaJan by Jan Larsen - HG Contemporary Gallery Through April 30, 2018 - New York

G Contemporary is pleased to present the next show from New-York-based artist Jan Larsen. Debuting works in multiple media from the artist's late-2017 and early-2018 meditations on the meanings of the word 'fit' – as in physical beauty, readiness-to-lead, and 'fitting-the-bill' – the show is the artist's fourth with the gallery. FIT extends several streams of work begun in Larsen's 2015 debut with HG – works that reference mass and social media, their impacts on our social fabric, icons from popular culture, metaphorical colorfield works, text-based "word work," posed photographs, and conceptual sculptural installations that meditate on and respond to some of the history and present fragmented social state of America, and its place in our current global social context. The show will also debut a new series of abstract paintings that extend Larsen's work into the realm of abstract expressionism.

Laurence Jenkell fashions candy in many forms: paintings, installations and sculptures. Jenkell is a self-taught artist and could not enjoy candies when she was a child, so she decided to make this simple object of desire the main subject of her artwork, with a focus on the twist in a candy's wrapper, and share it with the public worldwide. The creation of her artworks has led Jenkell to use materials like Plexiglass, polyester, aluminum, bronze and marble, but also to express herself through fragmentation. More than a medium, Jenkell's interpretation of the candy has become a language: Her candy sculpture is a radical gesture stemming from the semantic contents of Pop Art and from New Realism.

The Made in NY Media Center is proud to present Constellations, our second collaboration with Albert Chau, owner of Grumpy Bert. "Beyond light and space, these stars tell stories of a time and place. No matter how far apart we are, we're all connected, like this constellation of artists."

Daisy Desrosiers is an independent curator and researcher based in Montreal. From 2012 to 2017, she was the Director of Battat Contemporary in Montreal. During that time, she worked with numerous contemporary Canadian artists, supporting and promoting their work and career nationally and abroad. In conjunction, she has also overseen numerous art publications and artist books. In 2014, she was featured in the 30 under 30 list on Blouin ARTINFO and in 2015, she was invited by the Scottish Art Council to be a North American delegate for their Cultural delegation. In 2017, she was the Quebec juror for the RBC Canadian Painting prize. Desrosiers is completing a Masters in Art History at the University of Québec in Montréal under Dr. Monia Abdallah. She is currently pursuing research on the cultural and material implications of the use of sugar in contemporary art and aims to investigate the material and cultural issues in three artworks: Untitled (lover boys) (1991) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Oil and Sugar #2(2007) by Kader Attila and A subtlety or the Marvellous Sugar Baby (2014) by Kara Walker. Using cultural theory anchored in postcolonial studies, the project demonstrates how mindful attention to the role of material allows for a broader understanding of cultural tensions—of which it is both the witness and the result.

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

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

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

Going Green is a cross-media exhibition that aims to use the public and gallery space as a tool for creating positive disruption and change. In an age of misinformation and the now proverbial and continued unreality of "Fake News," how do we continue to facilitate important intersectional discussions that can engage and expand our horizons of the world around us? Disruptions continue to confront us at every turn: climate change, government mismanagement and obstructionism, systematic disenfranchisement across the cultural spectrum—but for every negative, there is the opportunity to create a positive. By bringing public art, cannabis activism, alternative culinary education, fact-based climate policy, and social justice advocacy together under the banner of Going Green, we can create a conversation that peaks curiosity and extols the virtues of openness and sharing.

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

Time in kids and brian alfred: Selections from millions now living will never die! - Chashama Through May 06, 2018 - New York

TThe Time In Children's Arts Initiative is proud to present selections from Brian Alfred's Millions Now Living Will Never Die!!! Originally presented in 2008 at Haunch of Venison, Berlin, and later at Haunch of Venison, New York, Millions Now Living will Never Die!!! is a stunning collection of 333 painted portraits: iconic figures and friends who informed and influenced Alfred's creative practice, from musicians and architects to politicians and writers. Brian, a long-time supporter of Time In's work — and a dad — will be joining Time In for a reception and community workshops for children. Stay tuned for details! About Time In Children's Arts Initiative The Time In Children's Arts Initiative has worked, since 2006, to transform the lives and learning of New York City's youngest and most at-risk public school children. An awardee of the renowned Maxine Greene Foundation for its groundbreaking work in arts-education, supported by the New York Community Trust, Bloomberg Philanthropies,The Catalog for Giving and other notable funders, Time In's powerful aesthetic, intellectual and social-emotional programming provides a clear antidote to the debilitating inequities that children living in high-risk, chronically impoverished communities struggle with daily. Now an ongoing part of a normal school day for hundreds of New York's most disadvantaged public elementary school children, Time In recreates the New York Magazine Best of NY HiArt! program, which for 20 years has served the children of some of the world's most privileged families -- from David Bowie and Hugh Jackman to Rupert Murdoch and Mort Zuckerman - as well as in residencies at The Hollingworth Center for Gifted Education (Teacher's College), and the Speyer Legacy School for exceptionally gifted children. Beginning with 30 kindergarteners from Harlem's failing Family Academy in 2006, Time In was founded on the belief that life-long learners and leaders emerge not from punitive time outs, but from effective participation in the real world. Every child, regardless of socio-economic background, is entitled to a thoughtfully crafted, arts-enriched education in which each individual child's talents and needs are recognized, and the support for greater creativity, intelligence, self-esteem and a brighter, better future is more than just a promise.

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

Tennessee Williams: No Refuge but Writing - The Morgan Library & Museum Through May 13, 2018 - New York

One of the greatest American playwrights of the twentieth century, Tennessee Williams (1911–1983) was a master of language and a tireless craftsman.

Each play in the Whistleblower Series explores the female protagonist as anti-hero. Each has mysteries around their actions with the public vilifying them and diluting their intended message. Additionally, all three plays explore international themes: Antigone is set in Greece, I Am My Own Wife is set in Germany but also has Americans, Russians and even the Japanese represented. And My Name Is Rachel Corrie has an American girl going to Israel/Palestine. With THE WHISTLEBLOWER SERIES, The Seeing Place examines the fallout when someone in our society calls out tyranny. "Society likes to romanticize the whistleblower, but when an activist stands up and says 'NO' there is often more backlash than support," said The Seeing Place's Managing Director, Erin Cronican. "We see abuse victims shamed and activists killed, and yet most people believe in the tenets these whistleblowers have put forth. So, what explains this gap? Our ensemble is using these three challenging and polarizing plays to expose that gap and ignite a conversation - with the hope that empathy and deeper understanding will emerge."   Even though the plays of The Seeing Theater's 8th Season span a hundred years and countless generations of storytelling, the subjects broached, and lessons learned are achingly relevant today. TSP chose these plays to open up a dialogue with an audience about the world. How can we build on what we've learned from the people who've come before us? THE PEOPLE VS ANTIGONE An adaptation by Brandon Walker from the play by Sophocles Directed by Brandon Walker The Seeing Place presents a world premiere adaptation of Sophocles tragic story - THE PEOPLE VS ANTIGONE. A modern take on the classic myth, this new play explores a rebel daughter taking on the patriarchy: will she lose her life when she breaks Theban law by burying her dead brother's body against decree? I AM MY OWN WIFE by Doug Wright Directed by Erin Cronican Based on a true story, and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I AM MY OWN WIFE tells the fascinating tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a real-life German transvestite who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime. Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize and the 2004 Tony Award. MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE by Katharine Viner and Alan Rickman from the writings of Rachel Corrie Directed by Brandon Walker On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a twenty-three-year-old American, was crushed to death by an Israeli Army bulldozer in Gaza as she was trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home. In the three sold-out London runs since its Royal Court premiere, the piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and it has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates.

The Seeing Place is a trained, actor-driven ensemble creating master theater, reinterpreted live, to make it relevant and accessible to audiences today. We live up to our name by engaging our community in a vivid conversation about what makes us human. Connection. Learning. Humanity. That's what theatron is all about. The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company: built by actors and managed by actors to be a base for actors who want to hone their craft in a creative and supportive artistic home, resulting in unparalleled dedication and excellence. We are forcefully committed to four key elements of theatre-making: *Mentoring and developing the next generation of independent, socially-conscious theater-makers; *Honoring the acting craft as central to the theater-making process, using the rehearsal practices of the Group Theatre to bring vivid, raw, "fully lived" storytelling to our community; * Creating edgy and compelling reinterpretations of works by master playwrights that reflect the struggles and triumphs of our current society; and * Making theater accessible for low-income New Yorkers by subsidizing 50% of our tickets. Theater is society's hands-on, in-person study of human behavior. By placing a keen focus on behavioral storytelling, The Seeing Place has become well-known for intense and intimate ensemble work. Productions are rehearsed in a structured, organic manner, involving improvisation and heavy script analysis. Through private funding and public fundraising events / campaigns, The Seeing Place ensemble feverishly fundraises in advance of each production so that it can subsidize all ticket prices to just $20 per ticket.

Kinescope.Gallery in collaboration with Fillmore Projects is pleased to announce the opening on Friday, April 20th, of Site: Sorel, the second solo exhibition by New York City based artist Maya Ciarrocchi. The exhibition is comprised of video, prints, 3D models and hand- drafted architectural drawings on the gallery walls. Site: Sorel is a meditation on the real and imaginary spaces left behind by the dead. In this work, Ciarrocchi conjures an image of Barbara Sorel, an author and fixture of the 1990’s lesbian bar scene in New York City. Sorel, as she was called by her friends, sold drugs to support her writing and was tragically murdered in her East Village apartment in 1999. Some of her writing remains and an obituary appeared in the Village Voice following her murder. Apart from this and the memories of friends, she is largely forgotten by history. Combining these memories with Ciarrocchi's own, and by utilizing text from Sorel's self-published book Sorel in Love, the exhibition merges language with image to reveal where the two women's experiences intersect and collide. As part of the exhibition there will be a performance event on Friday, May 11th from 6-8pm, comprised of readings of Sorel’s writing by those who knew her. These readings will lead to a broader discussion on the subject of art, success and the lesbian experience in New York City from the 1970’s to the present. Maya Ciarrocchi is an interdisciplinary artist whose work has been exhibited at Abrons Arts Center, Anthology Film Archives, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, The Chocolate Factory, Gibney Dance, Microscope Gallery, New York Live Arts and Smack Mellon. Residencies include the Baryshnikov Arts Center, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Ucross Foundation, and she has received grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Franklin Furnace Fund, Jerome Foundation, MAP Fund and Puffin Foundation. Ciarrocchi was a 2017 Bronx Museum Artist in the Marketplace and earned a MFA from the School of Visual Arts and a BFA from Purchase College. Viewable from sidewalk daily 12-9. Open Friday and Saturday from 1-6pm and by appointment, from April 20-May 19, 2018.

Curator Tom Kotik will work with a select group of artists who will interpret nature, or use organic forms as their inspiration in three dimensions.Human Nature features new work by Mckendree Key, Katerina Lanfranco, Kristyna and Marek Midle, John Monti, Colin O'Con, and Carolyn Salas. The exhibition is the sixth commissioned pedestal project. Nature, and our relationship to it, has been a theme in art since humans began drawing on cave walls during prehistoric times. Over the millennia, our methods of expression may have changed but our fascination with observing the natural world remains constant. Commissioned by Arts Brookfield, Human Nature presents six new works by seven contemporary artists inspired by natural landscape and the use of organic forms. Utilizing visual cues from nature, the artworks in this exhibition are distinct interpretations of our environment and the complex relationships to it. Some works utilize organic materials such as plants and natural fibers to reveal creative interactions with the earth’s resources; others rely on man-made and industrial materials, highlighting the contrast between the modern world and the idealized vision of nature we inherently possess. The vibrant and unique interpretations in Human Nature serve as visual landmarks in our perpetual quest to understand the ever-changing world that surrounds us. – Tom Kotik, curator

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

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

Bookstein Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent paintings by Paul Resika. This is the artist's ninth show with Lori Bookstein and the first with Bookstein Projects. An exhibition of related paintings from the same series will be on view at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects from April 18 – May 20, 2018. Paul Resika (b. 1928, New York, New York) studied under Hans Hofmann as a teenager in New York and Provincetown before departing for Venice and Rome in 1950 to study the old masters. After casting aside Hofmann's abstract principles, his Italian palette turned sober and descriptive. Upon his return to the United States, Resika devoted himself increasingly to the exploration of light and color, and the synthesis of abstraction and representation. Over his eight decade-long career, Resika has exhibited at the Peridot Gallery, Graham Modern, Long Point Gallery, Provincetown, Berta Walker Gallery, Provincetown, Hackett-Freedman Gallery, San Francisco, and Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, New York. Resika splits his time between New York and Truro, Massachusetts.

It's springtime in Paris, 1738. Metromania, the poetry craze, is all the rage. Damis, a young, would-be poet with a serious case of verse-mania falls for a mysterious poetess from Breton, Meriadec de Peaudoncqville (say it). She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman (yes, that's right) with a touch of the mania himself—looking to unload his sexy but dimwitted daughter—who also just happens to be cuckoo for couplets. Soon scheming servants, verbal acrobatics, and mistaken identities launch a breathless series of twists and turns in this breezy "translaptation" of a rediscovered French farce by comedic master David Ives (The Liar, Venus in Fur, All in the Timing). Red Bull Theater, the company that brought you recent acclaimed productions of The Government Inspector, Coriolanus, and The School for Scandal, is proud to present the New York Premiere of this new David Ives play.

In the early 1970s, Mary Heilmann began creating art that harnessed everyday domestic objects, repurposing them with a boldly hand-painted touch. Arriving in New York in the late 1960s, she was energized by the artists occupying the Minimal and Postminimal art scene. Heilmann's encounters with the work of artists closely associated with Dia's history, such as Dan Flavin and Donald Judd, made a significant impression while also delineating a clear difference between their practice and her approach. This exhibition at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton, New York, presents artworks that mark key milestones in Heilmann's practice. The presentation includes a selection of early paintings from the 1970s and 1980s when Heilmann began visiting the East End of Long Island. She eventually set up a studio in Bridgehampton, where all of her paintings and many of her ceramics have been made since 1999. Several recently finished works that have not been seen outside of her studio are included in this exhibition as well. Mary Heilmann: Painting Pictures at the Dan Flavin Art Institute is made possible by generous support from Carol and John Finley. Additional support is also provided by 303 Gallery, New York, Philip E. Aarons and Shelley Fox Aarons, Allison and Larry Berg, and Hauser & Wirth.

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

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

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

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

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

ioNature: Wheat Field is an interactive kinetic installation that is activated by the presence of an audience. As one approaches, the stalks of wheat ripple in waves as if caused by the invisible currents created by the body moving through space. As you move, so does the wheat; you are interconnected. The entire art installation visually and metaphorically illustrates the connection between the body and nature and the technology used to control it. The installation raises a few questions: What will the future be like when everything is connected? For better or for worse, what role will be we play in using technology to wield those connections? Will technology, which is created and executed by mankind, ever completely control our natural surroundings?

This new commission by Rita McBride, titled Particulates (2017), is inspired by time travel, the principles of light and space, and quantum physics. The materials of McBride's Particulates include water molecules, surfactant compounds, and the beams of high-intensity lasers. Her use of light as a sculptural medium marks a departure for the artist who has explored the tension between architectural and sculptural form in her extensive oeuvre since the mid-1980s. Particulates exchanges gravity, a core element in sculpture, for the potential of infinitely traversable space. It unfolds a wrinkle in time.

Dia Art Foundation presents an exhibition of works by the French artist François Morellet.

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

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

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

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

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

Knockdown Center presents Chloë Bass: The Book of Everyday Instruction, an eight-chapter investigation of one-on-one social interaction, exploring an expanded understanding of "the pair." This exhibition will be the first time the project is exhibited in its entirety, and includes all eight chapters developed by Bass between January 2015 and January 2018 as well as additional interventions created in response to Knockdown Center's public spaces outside of the gallery. Bass uses daily life as a site of research to study the modes and scales of intimacy, locating where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. Her works prioritize the fostering and observing of everyday interpersonal situations, and take a variety of forms across photography, text, video, sculpture, performance, a mobile phone app, poetic modes of documentation, and site-specific interventions. Presented in sequential chapters, each with its own central question and focus, Bass' inquiries expand in scale and scope; she begins with an investigation of intimacy between herself and a stranger, and expands outward to study the relationships between individuals and their safe spaces, institutions, and finally cities.

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

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

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

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

In conjunction with MoMA PS1’s Spring Open House, VW Sunday Sessions presents a performance festival in collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist-run venue Secret Project Robot.

Landscapes after Ruskin: Redefining the Sublime - Grey Art Gallery, NYU Through July 07, 2018 - New York

In the current global environment—with nature threatened now more than ever—how is our contemporary landscape reimagined by artists? Landscapes after Ruskin: Redefining the Sublime explores this intriguing question through artworks that confront an increasingly sinister notion of the sublime. Curated by renowned photographer Joel Sternfeld, the exhibition features approximately 60 works by over 45 artists, including paintings, photographs, sculpture, installation, film, and video. Landscapes after Ruskin was organized by the Hall Art Foundation and will be on view at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery from April 17 through July 7, 2018. Works in the show span many styles—from realism to expressionism, abstraction to figuration—revealing the multiple ways that contemporary artists are addressing current environmental concerns. While early landscapists such as J. M. W. Turner, depicted the power of raw, unrestricted nature to overwhelm humanity, the artists featured in Landscapes after Ruskin are working in a climate of heightened anxiety, technological advancement, frequent natural disasters, and increasing human populations. The show includes works by established figures Joseph Beuys, Mary Corse, Eric Fischl, Anselm Kiefer, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Ai Weiwei, Jane and Louise Wilson, and David Wojnarowicz alongside works by others who deserve to be better known, such as Naoya Hatakeyama, Dodo Jin Ming, Dora Longo Bahia, and Serban Savu.

Landscapes after Ruskin: Redefining the Sublime explores contemporary painting, photography, sculpture, and video through the lens of influential English art critic and social thinker John Ruskin (1819–1900), who argued that the artist's principal responsibility is "truth to nature." For Ruskin, this "truth" was more than just a technical representation of the natural world on canvas but also a depiction of it as experienced by humankind. In Landscapes after Ruskin, guest curator and artist Joel Sternfeld examines how, in a world overwhelmed by industrial development and environmental uncertainty, contemporary artists are discovering new beauties and terrors associated with nature and, in so doing, invoking an updated sense of the sublime. The exhibition features a wide range of works by over fifty artists, including Richard Artschwager, Christiane Baumgartner, Katherine Bradford, Spencer Finch, Neil Jenney, Raymond Pettibon, Michal Rovner, Ai Weiwei, and David Wojnarowicz, among others. Organized by the Hall Art Foundation, the exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Anything Goes: The Jazz Age Exhibition - Nassau County Museum of Art Through July 08, 2018 - Roslyn Harbor

Wild, hot, roaring, and free, the Jazz Age is immediately identified as the decadent heyday of such heroes as Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Cole Porter, Josephine Baker, e.e. cummings, Langston Hughes and other rebels who would “live it up to write it down” in New York, Paris and the Riviera. The gang’s all here in one multimedia exhibition that combines art, literature and music. Explore the masterpieces and experiments of a generation that changed the history of Modernism. The giants among the artists of the Twenties were Picasso, Léger, Miro, Gaston Lachaise, Stuart Davis, Florine Stettheimer and Tamara de Lempicka. Composers such as Gershwin and Porter were taking syncopation and the blues to new heights, while the Ballets Russes broke all dance conventions. The literature of the era included such masterworks as James Joyce’s Ulysses and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which was begun in nearby Great Neck and inspired in part by a painting by Francis Cugat that is one of the highlights of the show. A gallery dedicated to the super-heroes of the age includes memorabilia related to Lindbergh and the original Hobey Baker trophy, college hockey’s highest honor named for a World War I flying ace who was the real-life inspiration for some of Fitzgerald’s characters.

With powerful paintings and sculpture, intimate drawings (some never before exhibited), bold posters, sheet music, fashion, eye-dazzling jewelry, sleek furniture, and musical instruments (including Victrola turntables and a piano playing Gershwin’s own piano rolls), the exhibition brings the Jazz Age vividly to life. “Living well is the best revenge” was the motto of an extraordinarily fortunate generation, anything but “lost,” that remains today the epitome of sheer creative freedom.The exhibition has been underwritten by a generous gift from Americana Manhasset and Wheatley Plaza, with additional funding provided by the Ritz-Carlton Residences and Charles Scribner III.

The NY Handmade Collective, formerly Etsy NY Street Team, is showcasing its collective history as makers, and offering customers something a little bit different and new: the chance to explore the history of making in NYC, past in present. The Holiday Handmade Cavalcade has nine years worth of history, and has become a must for holiday shoppers looking for unique and locally crafted gifts from indie vendors, all based in the NY tri-state area.

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

Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife, an exhibition exploring the history of the ground-breaking Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, examines the circumstances that inspired early environmentalists—many of them women and New Yorkers—to champion the protection of endangered birds. Administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Migratory Bird Act prohibited the hunting, killing, trading, and shipping of migratory birds. It also regulated the nation's commercial plume trade, which had decimated many American bird species to the point of near extinction.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Times Square, as if the city itself is singing to you. Compass Song is centered at Duffy Square, with sounds spread between 49th Street to the north, 42nd Street to the south, 8th Avenue to the west, and 6th Avenue to the east. Let the map guide you within the active soundscape to seek out more of the audio experience, or wander through the district using only the app’s compass to happen upon divergent sonic elements.

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

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

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

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

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

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro - The Museum of Arts and Design Through September 02, 2018 - Columbus Circle

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of 91. Surprisingly, given her status as the elder stateswoman of the feminist art movement, the tremendous impact of her oeuvre on contemporary art has yet to be fully acknowledged or critically assessed. This exhibition seeks to redress this gap in the history of American art through an exploration of Schapiro’s signature femmages, the term she coined to describe her distinctive hybrid of painting and collage inspired by women’s domestic arts and crafts and the feminist critique of the hierarchy of art and craft. In examining the aesthetic and political objectives of Schapiro’s femmages, this exhibition highlights the pivotal role her work and leadership played in the expansion of the art world to include historically marginalized forms of craft, decoration, and abstract patterning associated with femininity and women’s work.

Although she is unheralded as the source, the influence of Schapiro’s subjective approach to forms of decoration can be identified today in an remarkably diverse group of artists who continue to find inspiration in her embrace of artistic practices outside the art historical canon. To highlight this legacy, works by a select group of contemporary artists, including Sanford Biggers, Josh Blackwell, Edie Fake, Jeffrey Gibson, Judy Ledgerwood, Jodie Mack, Sara Rahbar, Ruth Root, and Jasmin Sian, will be exhibited alongside Schapiro’s signature femmages. This juxtaposition of historic and contemporary work brings into critical focus the tremendous role Schapiro’s femmages played in the reframing of craft and decoration, while shining a light on the way artists today, both distinguished and emerging, continue to approach the decorative as a language of abstraction tied to the personal and the political.

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

This powerful new exhibit displays products, projects, and services developed by and with people with disabilities—physical, cognitive, and sensory—that expand their ability to lead independent lives and engage more fully in the world. The Access+Ability exhibition features more than 70 works, from adaptive clothing and eating implements that assist with daily routines to apps and “smart” technologies that aid in social interactions and navigating the environment. A variety of interactive elements will be installed throughout the exhibition to engage visitors, underscoring the importance of prioritizing users throughout the design process.

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition of New York-based artist Julia Phillips (b. 1985, German), featuring newly commissioned major works in combination with existing sculptures. Primarily working with ceramics, Phillips creates objects and scenes that are intimately connected to the body. Her sculptures mostly avoid direct figuration, however, and instead propose various interventions into and support structures for the body, emphasizing its absence from the works. Impressions of the human form are visible through elements like casts of orifices, handprints, and other traces, which indicate particular bodily placements in relation to her forms. While suggestive of particular functions and purposes that are overtly physical, these works also extend to the social and psychological. For Phillips, the body is entangled in the real and abstract spaces of politics, evident through indications given in her arrangements as well as the works' titles, which are often directives for specific actions.

MoMA PS1 presents the US premiere of photographer Gauri Gill's most recent body of work, Acts of Appearance, a series of vivid color photographs for which the artist worked closely with members of an Adivasi community in Jawhar district, Maharashtra, India. Gill's collaborator-subjects are renowned for their papier-mâché objects, including traditional sacred masks. In these pictures they engage in everyday village activities while wearing new masks, made expressly for this body of work, which depict living beings with the physical characteristics of humans, animals, or valued objects. A range of scenarios and narratives, situated in both "reality" and dreamlike states, come together in the photographs, which simultaneously portray symbolic or playful representations as well as the familiar experiences of community members against the backdrop of their home and culture.

In June of 2015, Miriam Schapiro, the pioneering feminist artist and founding member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, passed away at the age of ninety-one.

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

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

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

Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes - New York Historical Society Through October 08, 2018 - Upper West Side

Shoes in recent years have culturally transcended their utilitarian purpose to become an object of desire and deliberation, calling up abstract considerations—like the freighted meanings of femininity, power, domination, and aspiration—for both women and men alike. Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes highlights examples from the shoe designer's extensive private collection, assembled over three decades. The exhibition considers the story of the shoe from the perspectives of collection, consumption, presentation, and production with more than 100 pairs of shoes on view. The exhibition will explore larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women's contributions as makers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Coordinated by Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History, with Edward Maeder, consulting curator, and Jeanne Gardner Gutierrez, curatorial coordinator.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Floor Four, The David Geffen Galleries Innovation in art is often characterized as a singular event—a bolt of lightning that strikes once and forever changes what follows. The Long Run provides an alternate view: by chronicling the continued experimentation of artists long after their breakthrough moments, it suggests that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio. Each work in this presentation exemplifies an artist’s distinct evolution. For some, this results from continually testing the boundaries of a given medium, for others it reflects the pressures of social, economic, and political circumstances. Often, it is a combination of both. The Long Run includes monographic galleries and rooms that bring together artists across a broad range of backgrounds and approaches. All the artists in this presentation—drawn entirely from MoMA’s collection—are united by a ceaseless desire to make meaningful work, year after year, across decades. They include Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Joan Jonas, Helen Levitt, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, and many others.

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

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

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