High Lifelong Day's Journey into Night (In 3-D) - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 28, 2019 - New York

Following his knockout debut, Kaili Blues (ND/NF 2016), writer-director Bi Gan returns with this immersive art-house sensation that broke box office records in China. Long Day's Journey Into Night is a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Huang Jue) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological detective story, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you've seen before, especially in the second half's hour-long, gravity-defying 3-D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. An NYFF56 selection. A Kino Lorber release.

KGB: Sunday Night Fiction

Dogman - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 28, 2019 - New York

The latest dark fable from Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Tale of Tales) trains its unflinching gaze on mild-mannered Marcello (Marcello Fonte), a doting single father who owns and lovingly operates a one-man dog grooming business in a sparse Neapolitan suburb. When Marcello's pliable friendliness leads him into an entanglement with the local bully, he finds himself increasingly alienated from the goodwill of his community, and his hardwon livelihood is placed in jeopardy. With its stark, chilly atmospherics and quietly propulsive narrative, Dogman left an indelible impression on audiences at last year's Cannes Film Festival, where Fonte was awarded Best Actor for a performance of slow-burning intensity and raw sensitivity. A Magnolia Pictures release.

Erika Balsom: To Narrate or Describe? Experimental Documentary beyond Docufiction - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 28, 2019 - New York

Each edition of Art of the Real features a selection of Spotlights that take a closer look at a range of practices in experimental documentary. This year, we collaborate with e-flux Bar Laika to present two spotlight events with the artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire and the scholar and critic Erika Balsom. This talk will consider how and why hybridity, fiction, and "blurring boundaries" have figured as recurring preoccupations in critical and curatorial efforts to conceptualize the vitality of experimental documentary practices. Looking to the limits of this discourse, it will explore how some artists and filmmakers have turned to the very different strategies of description and observation, finding in them the possibility of asserting belief in reality at a time of its supposed collapse. Erika Balsom is a senior lecturer in Film Studies and Liberal Arts at King's College London and the author of After Uniqueness: A History of Film and Video Art in Circulation (2017) and Exhibiting Cinema in Contemporary Art (2013); the co-editor of Documentary Across Disciplines (2016); and a frequent contributor to magazines such as Artforum, frieze, and Sight & Sound.

Last Night I Saw You Smiling - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 28, 2019 - New York

Once a thriving artist community and cultural hub, Phnom Penh's historic White Building has been sold to Japanese condo developers, displacing nearly 500 families. Born and raised in the building, filmmaker Kavich Neang returns to interview friends, neighbors, and family as they prepare to uproot, stirring up the dust and memories that have accumulated in the building's walls. As longtime residents somberly reflect on their old home and its imminent destruction, summoning memories of Cambodia's post-independence golden age and of similar evictions during the Khmer Rouge, Neang captures the serene light and music its storied hallways one last time.

Tribute to Jocelyne Saab: The Beirut Trilogy - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 28, 2019 - New York

Lyrical and uncompromising, the films of Jocelyne Saab (1948-2019) are at once landmark works of Lebanese cinema and masterpieces of the essay film form. The poetic voiceovers of her movies recall Chris Marker, and her fragmented, diaristic images are reminiscent of Jonas Mekas. But Saab's poetic vision, and her intimate interactions with the displaced, the exiled, and the voiceless, mark her films as uniquely her own. Trained as a radio and television journalist, Saab turned her attention to nonfiction films in the wake of the Lebanese Civil War. Her epic, impressionistic trilogy of documentaries about Beirut that followed captures a city at once wounded, mournful, and bristling with life and energy, chronicling a moment at which "a kind of bitter poetry has replaced the carelessness of the past."

Artist in Residence: Ciara Ruddock: Feelin' Good - Children's Museum of the Arts
April 28, 2019 - New York

Join CMA Artist in Resident Ciara Ruddock for a special workshop "Why do human beings make art? Why do we paint? Why do we write poetry? Why do we sing? Well, after some careful thought — and a few conversations — I believe that the root of all art making is linked to one simple feeling … JOY. When we use our hands and minds to create something, we feel good, or at least we should. As professional artists we are sometimes so distracted by deadlines, commissions, funding (the list goes on and on) that we lose the sense of joy we once received from art making whilst in the process. Kids on the other hand, rarely have this problem — they dive in head first and enjoy the ride. Aside from working as a professional artist, I am also a Teaching Artist, and it is through years of watching my students so joyfully and imaginatively create that I was inspired to begin the project, feelin' good. In this project, students and professional artists are provided with matching prompts to facilitate their art making. These prompts are aimed to provide a space for students and professional artists to find one another in. Students and artists can compare their work, discuss challenges within the con... (read more)

For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here? - International Center of Photography (Museum)
Through April 28, 2019 - New York

In the wake of the 2018 midterm elections, ICP’s new exhibition "For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here?" explores the role of art and visual representation in American civic life through the work of the For Freedoms collective. The exhibition features work from their 50 State Initiative—composed of a network of over 300 artists and 200 institutional partners—which featured concurrent exhibitions, art installations, and public programs as well as a nationwide artist-designed billboard campaign in all 50 states including DC and Puerto Rico, in the lead up to the midterm elections. Also central to the 50 State Initiative is the collective’s series of photographs that re-envision American artist Norman Rockwell’s Four Freedoms paintings—depicting freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear, as articulated by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union address—which will be on the view for the first time. For Freedoms’ stylized scenes of the everyday reference Rockwell’s iconic style while bringing new, more inclusive representations of the country to the discussion of our core values.

The series kicked off on November 12, 2018 with #NastyWomen, A Night of Female Resistance Comedy and runs through April 2019. "For our season of War & Peace, we knew that artists from the LGBTQ community would have a strong reaction to the theme. Coming out can often feel like war and creating a family can bring much needed peace. Our LGBTQ offerings this season have addressed the gamut, from Vietnam Veterans coming to terms with their sexuality to a TYA show with a non-gender binary protagonist to a piece about a modern family facing discrimination from within.  Our theater is a safe place for provocative work that will inspire conversation, debate and hopefully action," said Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director. 2018-2019 LGBTQ+ Series: The Baby Monitor  Different Translation  November 29 - December 16, 2018 Written by David Stallings, directed by Antonio Miniño  When Claire's concerns ...

High Lifelong Day's Journey into Night (In 3-D) - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 29, 2019 - New York

Following his knockout debut, Kaili Blues (ND/NF 2016), writer-director Bi Gan returns with this immersive art-house sensation that broke box office records in China. Long Day's Journey Into Night is a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Huang Jue) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological detective story, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you've seen before, especially in the second half's hour-long, gravity-defying 3-D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. An NYFF56 selection. A Kino Lorber release.

Dogman - Film Society of Lincoln Center
April 29, 2019 - New York

The latest dark fable from Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Tale of Tales) trains its unflinching gaze on mild-mannered Marcello (Marcello Fonte), a doting single father who owns and lovingly operates a one-man dog grooming business in a sparse Neapolitan suburb. When Marcello's pliable friendliness leads him into an entanglement with the local bully, he finds himself increasingly alienated from the goodwill of his community, and his hardwon livelihood is placed in jeopardy. With its stark, chilly atmospherics and quietly propulsive narrative, Dogman left an indelible impression on audiences at last year's Cannes Film Festival, where Fonte was awarded Best Actor for a performance of slow-burning intensity and raw sensitivity. A Magnolia Pictures release.

Kathleen Stuart as Bette Midler in 'Mud Will BE Flung Tonight!' - Dixon Place
April 29, 2019 - New York

Mud Will Be Flung Tonight! was originally performed by Bette Midler in 1985 at The Improv in LA. The show delivers 'mud flinging' at mega-celebrities, Midler's famous Soph jokes, and songs including Otto Titsling which later became widely known in the movie Beaches. With only an audio recording of the show (currently out of print) and a love for Midler's characters, craftsmanship, and Midler's own larger than life personality, Stuart allows us to experience this hidden gem: intimate, in your face, yet refined (as refined as one gets when talking about cutting the cheese), and quintessentially Bette!

Pete Brook on Teaching, Talking & Seeing Photos in Prison - Aperture Foundation
April 29, 2019 - New York

Since September 2018, Pete Brook has taught at San Quentin State Prison. As a guest instructor with the Prison University Project, he taught History of Photography in late 2018 and, more recently, led a curriculum-writing workshop in which incarcerated students designed lesson-plans for high school students about images and mass incarceration. The curriculum created will be distributed freely to high schools, colleges, advocacy groups, politicians as well as the general public. Incarcerated students are providing new points of departure for debate about mass incarceration. Drawing on students’ essays, syllabi, teacher evals, memory and anecdote, Brook will reflect upon his teaching experience: how incarcerated students engage with photographs, how they see prison photographs, and how they want us to see prisons. The presentation, informal discussion and audience Q&A, will be moderated by W.M. (Bill) Hunt, photography collector and curator and a board member of the W. Eugene Smith Fund.

Exhibition Opening for Harbin, China|Past/Present - Museum at Eldridge Street
April 30, 2019 - New York

Like the Eldridge Street Synagogue, a grand synagogue stands in Harbin, China that serves as a museum and a relic of a time when it was the center of a flourishing Jewish community. And much like the Lower East Side, many of Harbin's Jews eventually left the home they had created there. In this exhibition, Harbin's Jewish past is presented in historic photographs and personal stories. In the 1890s, the Trans-Siberian Railway turned the small fishing village in northeastern China into a thriving city, shaped by the interaction of Jews, Russians, Chinese and others. But by the early 1960s, the last Jewish families had left Harbin, leaving behind synagogues, schools, a hospital and more as they immigrated to the United States, Israel and elsewhere. Today, a new appreciation for this history has spurred restoration and commemoration of the Jewish history of Harbin. Steven Lane, a New York artist has been making art in Harbin for various periods of time since 1985, often uses the former Harbin synagogues as temporary studio spaces.Lane's art in this exhibition focuses on painting over and re-using Chinese newspapers, posters, and books from the era of the Cultural Revolution, which he ...

(read the foreword here along with an excerpt of the book on Lit Hub) Tuesday, April 30th @ 7:30 PM - Nick Thorkelson in conversation with Ben Katchor at The New School (part of “New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium”) About Herbert Marcuse: Often referred to as the unofficial faculty advisor to the New Left, Marcuse's controversial critiques of post-WWII capitalism entered popular consciousness with the 1964 publication of his One-Dimensional Man, which sold over 100,000 copies in its first years in print. His advocacy for a more humane, sustainable world was grounded in his own experience of living through and escaping Hitler’s Germany. Perennially relevant, radical, and inspiring, Marcuse'...

Toshiko Mori: Transforming Communities Through Architecture - Japan Society
May 01, 2019 - New York

Good design can have a profound impact on local art and communities, as exemplified by the Setouchi region of Japan. In the post-World War II period, there was significant patronage of modern art and architecture in this region. In 1958, Kenzo Tange, whose work combines modern architecture with traditional Japanese techniques and symbolism, designed Kagawa Prefecture's governmental office building. This sparked an artistic renaissance, and the area has become an internationally acclaimed creative hub centered around the Setouchi Art Triennale. At this talk, Prof. Toshiko Mori, founder of Toshiko Mori Architect PLLC and Professor of Architecture at Harvard University, examines this unique artistic and architectural phenomenon. She will also touch on her two projects in villages in Senegal that share a similar ambition to create peace and stability by integrating contemporary architecture with vernacular buildings and local culture. Followed by a reception.

High Lifelong Day's Journey into Night (In 3-D) - Film Society of Lincoln Center
May 01, 2019 - New York

Following his knockout debut, Kaili Blues (ND/NF 2016), writer-director Bi Gan returns with this immersive art-house sensation that broke box office records in China. Long Day's Journey Into Night is a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Huang Jue) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological detective story, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you've seen before, especially in the second half's hour-long, gravity-defying 3-D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. An NYFF56 selection. A Kino Lorber release.

New World Symphony - Carnegie Hall
May 01, 2019 - New York

Virtuosity reigns and the stars shine brightly when two Perspectives artists—Michael Tilson Thomas and Yuja Wang—share the stage. Prokofiev strove for simplicity in his final piano concerto, a work he originally named “Music for Piano and Orchestra.” The concerto, however, is anything but facile with its nimble opening movement, quicksilver toccata, and emotionally powerful Larghetto. Emotions certainly are at the fore in Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, a phantasmagoric tale of obsessive passion painted in kaleidoscopic orchestral colors.

Dogman - Film Society of Lincoln Center
May 01, 2019 - New York

The latest dark fable from Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, Tale of Tales) trains its unflinching gaze on mild-mannered Marcello (Marcello Fonte), a doting single father who owns and lovingly operates a one-man dog grooming business in a sparse Neapolitan suburb. When Marcello's pliable friendliness leads him into an entanglement with the local bully, he finds himself increasingly alienated from the goodwill of his community, and his hardwon livelihood is placed in jeopardy. With its stark, chilly atmospherics and quietly propulsive narrative, Dogman left an indelible impression on audiences at last year's Cannes Film Festival, where Fonte was awarded Best Actor for a performance of slow-burning intensity and raw sensitivity. A Magnolia Pictures release.

New World Symphony - Carnegie Hall
May 01, 2019 - New York

Virtuosity reigns and the stars shine brightly when two Perspectives artists—Michael Tilson Thomas and Yuja Wang—share the stage. Prokofiev strove for simplicity in his final piano concerto, a work he originally named “Music for Piano and Orchestra.” The concerto, however, is anything but facile with its nimble opening movement, quicksilver toccata, and emotionally powerful Larghetto. Emotions certainly are at the fore in Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, a phantasmagoric tale of obsessive passion painted in kaleidoscopic orchestral colors.

High Lifelong Day's Journey into Night (In 3-D) - Film Society of Lincoln Center
May 02, 2019 - New York

Following his knockout debut, Kaili Blues (ND/NF 2016), writer-director Bi Gan returns with this immersive art-house sensation that broke box office records in China. Long Day's Journey Into Night is a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Huang Jue) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological detective story, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you've seen before, especially in the second half's hour-long, gravity-defying 3-D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. An NYFF56 selection. A Kino Lorber release.

Knock down the House - Film Society of Lincoln Center
May 02, 2019 - New York

Rachel Lears's remarkable documentary follows four female politicians as they challenged local Democratic incumbents in the 2018 midterm elections. They include the new face of the party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, then a struggling candidate from the Bronx no less passionate or charismatic than she is now; Cori Bush, a former nurse inspired to run for office shortly after the murder of Michael Brown; and Paula Jean Swearengin and Amy Vilela, both motivated to improve communities blighted by health problems and poverty. Observing a flash point in American history with confidence and unfettered access, Knock Down the House is an emotional portrait of the changing profile of America's political hopefuls, which effectively details all facets of the grassroots campaign trail.

Jean Epstein's the Faithful Heart (Coeur Fidèle) with Live Score - Film Society of Lincoln Center
May 02, 2019 - New York

This lyrical, fleet-footed melodrama tells a deceptively simple story of star-crossed lovers in sun-soaked Marseilles. Gina Manès plays Marie, a foundling raised to adulthood by the unloving married owners of a dockside café. Marie is in love with Jean (Léon Mathot), but has instead been promised to Petit Paul (Edmond van Daële), a hot-headed young drunk. The Faithful Heart (Coeur fidèle) is stylistically rooted in the tradition of French impressionist cinema, and narratively anticipates the full-fledged poetic realism of the 1930s. The Film Society is delighted to welcome back the Alloy Orchestra, performing an original score that brings Jean Epstein's beautifully restored silent masterwork to life with the help of found objects, synthesizers, and handcrafted instruments.

Lavender Menace - Dixon Place
May 02, 2019 - New York

In the early 1970s, a group of women self-identified as the radical lesbians found themselves rejected from the Gay Liberation Front (because of sexism) and the National Organization of Women (because of homophobia). In response, they threw their own damn parties and planned their own damn protests–and their determination to be heard and to make change paid off. They came into their own as activists and found themselves with the momentum, the womanpower, and the ideas needed to start making some serious change. So why did it all suddenly begin to dissolve? How did this great potential stay unsatisfyingly unresolved? What happened?

The class will celebrate this release with performances of material contained in the set, as well as additional pieces that Lowe has composed over the years based on American song forms. We will discuss what those forms are, how they relate to both improvised and non-improvised music, why the composer has written them the way they are written, and what 'meaning' they contain, if any, in relation to America's musical history. There will be a number of special guests appearing and performing including Jimmy Halperin, Ray Suhy, Lewis Porter, Jeremy Carlstedt, Lisa Parrott, Hilliard Green, and Brian Simontacchi (and Allen Lowe on alto sax).

White Lies - Irving Plaza
May 02, 2019 - New york

As White Lies were working on their new album Five, they became aware that its release would coincide with the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough debut, To Lose My Life. It seemed like the right time to close one circle and open another. Over ten years and four albums, the London trio have quietly become one of the UK's most enduring bands, a cult group who've experienced both mainstream success and diehard fandom, a band who make bombastic, grandiose music about the complications and intimacy of day-to-day existence. It was time to kick off their second decade with a statement of intent. "To Lose My Life was the best possible record we could have made aged 19," says bassist and lyricist Charles Cave. "Five is absolutely the best record we could've made aged 30. Naming the album Five gives it a bit of a glow, like a pillar coming up. It feels like a bookmark."

Perspectives artist Michael Tilson Thomas’s brilliance as conductor and composer are showcased. His Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind takes its text from a Carl Sandburg poem and was composed for soprano Measha Brueggergosman.

Les Goodson Jazz Band

Ellington Through the Ages - Jazz at Lincoln Center
May 03, 2019 - New York

Wynton Marsalis, bassist Rodney Whitaker, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, and saxophonist Dan Block lead an all-Ellington showcase with a group of young rising jazz stars. The band includes 16 of the best young professionals on the scene, many of whom came up through our Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band program and love this music as much as our audiences. Ellington's music is so elegant, so dynamic, so intimately detailed that it takes a group of musicians with a genuine collaborative spark to fully bring out its inner magic, and that is what you will experience tonight. This concert explores decades of Duke's music, including his earliest hits, Hollywood charts, swinging blues numbers, pieces inspired by his international travels, and portions of his later suites. It's an eclectic repertoire and yet unmistakably Ellington through and through—always enjoyable upon first listen, but teeming with brilliant details that continue to reveal themselves over time. This vital music is at the core of Jazz at Lincoln Center, and you're guaranteed to enjoy its timeless genius when the next generation of jazz leaders bring their fresh energy to it.

Non-Fiction - Film Society of Lincoln Center
May 03, 2019 - New York

Set within the world of publishing, Olivier Assayas's new film finds two hopelessly intertwined couples—Guillaume Canet's troubled book executive and Juliette Binoche's weary actress; Vincent Macaigne's boorish novelist and Nora Hamzawi's straight-and-balanced political operative—obsessed with the state of things, and how (or when) it will (or might) change. Is print dying? Has blogging replaced writing? Is fiction over? But the divide between what these characters—and their friends, and their enemies, and everyone in between—talk about and what is actually happening between them, moment by moment, is what gives Non-Fiction its very particular charm, humor, and lifelike stabs of emotion. An NYFF56 selection. A Sundance Selects release.

Lisa Mccleary: Edging - Gallery MC
Through May 03, 2019 - New York

Gallery MC, Manhattan is pleased to present Irish-Australian artist, Lisa McCleary's first solo exhibition in New York City, entitled Edging. Lisa McCleary, currently in residence at Vermont Studio Center, is showcasing a new series of work at Gallery MC, Manhattan. The exhibition will classify an exploration into the last year of her material practice, delving into elements of painting, sculpture and tapestry. Addressing haptic sensations, McCleary's practice is anchored by the embodiment of touch. Gallery MC, on the 8th floor of 549 West 52nd Street, will receive part of a growing collection of works in McCleary's repertoire. The pieces, rendered on aluminum, focus on the pleasure of flesh, and the way that pleasure translates into our desire for our communication devices. With a keen eye for the mediation of corporeality, the depiction of real and abstraction, at turns, renders the body into an abject and sensuous landscape. McCleary filters this carnal depiction through a myriad of screens—queering the metaphorical body, and classifying an already detailed process through a progressive lens. Gallery MC will be transformed into a space in which desire, abjection and the digit... (read more)

Andrea Gibson - Gramercy Theater

Andrea Gibson is not gentle with their truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led them to the forefront of the spoken word movement -- the first winner of the Women's World Poetry Slam -- Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality. Their work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV, and in 2010 was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature. Now, on their fifth full-length album, FLOWER BOY, and their second book, THE MADNESS VASE, Gibson's poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart's most compassionate room. In their most recent book, PANSY, Gibson balances themes of love, gender, politics, sexuality, illness, family and forgiveness with stunning imagery and a fierce willingness to delve into the exploration of what it means to truly heal. Each turn of the page represents both that which as been forgotten and that which is yet to be released. While this book is a rally cry for political action, it is also a celebration of wonder an...

Jonathan Gonzalez - Abrons Arts Center
Through May 04, 2019 - New York

Lucifer Landing II conceptualizes Blackness and post-Anthropocentricism, as well as the traditions of classicism, narratives of the ‘epic’, and conventions of classical opera. Informed by concepts championed by Buckminster Fuller and the Lower East Side Nuyorican collective CHARAS, a geodesic dome serves as the theatrical landscape for Lucifer (portrayed by Wayne Arthur Paul). Orating from the hold of an earthbound incarceration, Lucifer reveals the entanglements between the state of non-being that is black life and the non-human in order to imagine a lateralized intimacy on a damaged planet. The choreography and theatrical design function in correspondence with local indicators that monitor seismic and waterfront activity.

Set within the world of publishing, Olivier Assayas's new film finds two hopelessly intertwined couples—Guillaume Canet's troubled book executive and Juliette Binoche's weary actress; Vincent Macaigne's boorish novelist and Nora Hamzawi's straight-and-balanced political operative—obsessed with the state of things, and how (or when) it will (or might) change. Is print dying? Has blogging replaced writing? Is fiction over? But the divide between what these characters—and their friends, and their enemies, and everyone in between—talk about and what is actually happening between them, moment by moment, is what gives Non-Fiction its very particular charm, humor, and lifelike stabs of emotion. An NYFF56 selection. A Sundance Selects release.

One Art Space invites you to the opening reception of “Defying Gravity” Thursday, March 2nd. This collection, like Qiheng Liu himself, projects a quiet, thoughtful intensity. Qiheng’s work respectfully defies traditional still life and portrait painting, even daring to “mess with” gravity.

The results are spellbinding. Qiheng Liu’s inspiration stems from an awakening; that failures leads to success. This journey, to discover one’s true self as an artist, has swept ... (read more)

About the Artist Jantus (Buenos Aires, 1994) has appeared in the worldwide art scene as one of the most devoted young artists of the present times.

Agora and Gallery - Agora Gallery
Through May 08, 2019 - NYC

Agora Gallery presents A Rich Profusion of Spring, an exhibition of paintings and sculptures, on view April 18 through May 8, 2019, with an opening reception Thursday, April 18, from 6-8 PM. Spring invigorates. April is conventionally associated birth and new life; and yet, at T.S. Eliot once remarked, “April is the cruelest month.” The 13 artists included in this exhibition all explore the fecundity of their medium (be it a watercolor work, a sculpture, or a painting in oils); but they everywhere encounter limits. These limits call into question the value their chosen craft. In the face of restlessness and doubt, however, these 13 artists dauntlessly capture the energy artists use to realize an artwork into life. The works on view show the human figure as something effaced, concealed, even denatured. In the teeth of this, the elegance of human ingenuity becomes all the more apparent. Glimpses become certitudes; conviction becomes truth. Featuring domestic interiors, craggy landscapes, and urban vistas, the attitude each artist takes in relation to his or her theme is one of disinterested contemplation. Oftentimes, there is no observer suggested by the work—apart from the vie... (read more)

New Stage Theatre Company brings its bold visual style and compelling absurdist/physical humor to "Electronic City" by Falk Richter. - The New Stage Performance Space
Through May 10, 2019 - new york city

NEW YORK -- New Stage Theatre Company (www.newstagetheatre.org) will bring its signature blend of inventive choreography and striking visual design to a modernist masterpiece of German theater with its production of "Electronic City" (2003) by Falk Richter, translated by Marlene J. Norst, adapted and directed by Ildiko Nemeth. Performances are April 12 to May 10 at The New Stage Performance Space, 36 West 106th Street (basement level). "Electronic City" is the story of Tom and Joy, who seek belonging, connection, and meaning amid lives in which living is squeezed between long-distance travel, the buffeting of instant communication and the commercial pressures of their jobs. Tom, lost and confused, and Joy, paralyzed by the constant demands of her barcode scanning job, collide at an airport gate. The two are so fully, hypnotically, and unhappily controlled by devices, mass media, and the general speed of modern life that, though they seek each other throughout the play, their finding each other on the same small stage is far from guaranteed. The production paints the isolation and alienation of our technology-driven, image-saturated culture with a dynamic mix of projections, ... (read more)

Champeny states “Mosaics enable me to elicit the tension and stories between hand sculpted and cast pixels and the overall image they compose. I want my art to open a conversation for the viewer. I hope people discovering and viewing my pieces will connect their own experiences to the choices I made when creating the work”.

Hurricane Sleep: A Sonata of Floating & Drowning | NY - IATI Theater
Through May 12, 2019 - New York

Hurricane Sleep is a new female-centered experimental play about trauma and how healing begins with the most intimate self to reverberate through dimensions of time and being. Set in New York City during Hurricane Sandy, Sal finds herself trapped in a flooding bodega alongside a local girl named Ome.

Their marriage ended in divorce and they haven't seen each other in 9 months, but now Mary has been called back to Bob's apartment by their mutual friend and lawyer, Oscar, in the hopes that they can avert an audit by the IRS.

What do you get when you combine a corrupt gynecologist, plastic surgery look-a-likes, a lascivious surgeon, a jittery liberal engaged to a staunch conservative, a flighty receptionist, a mysterious man hired for his sexual dexterity and a forgetful Holocaust survivor? You get Knock It Off!, a new farce debuting at Theater for the New City starting May 2nd. Karen Lynn Gorney, star of the movie “Saturday Night Fever” and “All My Children” joins the cast as Eyphah along with Peter Zachari, Lori Funk, Joey Mirabile, Nora Falk, Scott Ahearn, Amandina Altomare and Brian Anthony Simmons. Four years ago playwright Peter Zachari mounted the first version of this play, which was titled, Under the Knife. “When I originally presented this show we set the farce in modern day but it always felt like it could work in a different time period,” says Zachari. “Dr. Katz is a disgraceful gynecologist who will do anything for a buck so I thought, ‘What if we set it in 1973 when the abortion debate was swirling and the play opens on the day of the Roe v. Wade announcement?’ Now Katz has been secretly and illegally performing abortions for cash under the table and is dreading the Supreme Court d... (read more)

Letitia presents work from her series “40 Acres...Gumbo Ya Ya,” referencing the unfulfilled promise of land to formerly enslaved individuals in post-civil-war America, and the Cajun phrase meaning everybody is talking at once.

Mean Girls - August-Wilson Theatre

Mean Girl Broadway Musical If you didn’t see Mean Girl back in the 2000s, then you probably didn’t have that great of a childhood. Most people might call it a chick flick, but in our opinion, it is one of the greatest teen movies of our generation. The people were in awe over our little mathematician. Oh, and it’s not just our opinion, the movie was showered with more awards then we can count. But, the story just keeps getting better. After her incredible movie, Tina Fey didn’t just stop there. She has far greater and extravagant plans for the Mean Girls Franchise. You'd like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical. The oh-so-not-surprising answer is... yes! – Peter Marks, The Washington Post We sometimes feel that our childhood is coming to life with musicals. First, it was Bring it On, then Heathers with several others in development. But, the musical for Mean Girls is already here. The Mean Girls Musical is a masterpiece from the great Fey. It’s based on her book and the movie of the same name. The musical was under construction since 2013. But, it was a moment of joy for every fan when it was announced on “Mean Girls Day” that their favorite movie was comi... (read more)

“Move Your Curves” Workshop at Ailey Extension - The Joan Weill Center for Dance
Through June 15, 2019 - New York

Ailey Extension is teaming up with Pretty BIG Movement to bring you a “Move Your Curves" workshop. Pretty BIG Movement, based in New York City, is a full-figured dance company specializing in various dance genres such as hip-hop, jazz, ethnic, and more. Founder and CEO Akira Armstrong realized there wasn't a platform for women with voluptuous curves in mainstream media, and so she created one. While auditioning for Full Figured Fashion Week, Akira found that she was surrounded by confident, plus-size women who were beautiful, curvaceous, and shared the same passion in dance. She seized that moment and started Pretty BIG Movement. By 2015, the voluptuous dance troupe performed in Ladies Of Hip-Hop, Carnival (choreographers' ball), Ms. Full Figured USA pageant, Female Hip-Hop Honors award show, Salt N Pepa, Lane Bryant campaigns ("I'm No Angel" and "Plus Is Equal"), Full Beauty commercial, Mz. 007 concert and NBC's America's Got Talent (season 10). Currently, Pretty BIG offers dance workshops in the tri-state area to the plus-size community, creating a No Judgment environment where individuals can feel comfortable dancing.

Among Others: Photography and the Group - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through August 18, 2019 - Manhattan

Composed chiefly of works in the Morgan's collection, this exhibition explores how photographers have represented the bonds uniting people, whether in group portraits or in serial imagery. In arranged sittings, form is content: when commissioned to photograph the royals of Germany and England at a wedding in 1894, James Russell and Son's Studio instinctively centered its composition around the family's matriarch, Queen Victoria. Camera artists sometimes insert themselves into the action, as Susan Meiselas did when mingling with carnival strippers, first to portray them behind the scenes and then to photograph those in the audience from a performer's perspective. Action can also be a pose: in 1970, when asked to create a positive poster image for the Gay Liberation Front, Peter Hujar asked the group's members to run toward him on the street, enacting their slogan, "Come Out!!" Ingenuity may be called for when one's subjects are all too well-known: a press photographer, Jean-Pierre Ducatez, appealed to the primal desires of Beatles fans by zeroing in on the lips of each band member, creating a captivating game of who's-who. Bringing together works from the 1860s to the present, Among... (read more)

Hogarth: Cruelty and Humor - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 22, 2019 - Manhattan

The satirical scenes of the celebrated English artist William Hogarth (1697–1764) are iconic representations of eighteenth-century urban life at a time of great socio-economic disparity. An academic outsider and an activist, Hogarth was driven to innovate, creating new genres and modes of expression in his painting, printmaking, and drawing in his effort to elevate the status of British art. This exhibition will investigate the ways the artist used humor, satire, and political commentary to engage a broad audience and agitate for legislation and political goals. The exhibition features the Morgan's exceptional cache of six sheets preparatory for two of Hogarth's most revered print series, both issued in February 1751: Beer Street and Gin Lane and The Four Stages of Cruelty. The story of Hogarth's images reveal an artist who addressed the ills and injustices of life in a modern metropolis, exploring the connections between violence, crime, alcohol abuse, and cruelty to animals in ways that would amuse, occasionally shock, and edify his audience.

Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depict... (read more)
