C'etait la guerre draws upon two novelistic memoirs, Commander Azzedine's We Were Called Fellaghas (1974) and Jean-Claude Carrière's Peace of the Brave (1989), in confronting the Algerian War of Independence. "Burlesque, unreal, or bloody, the images that I kept of that time in Algeria are the strongest of my life," Jean-Claude Carrière would recall of his service in the French Air Force during the Algerian War. "When I proposed to Commander Azzedine, a mythical figure in the Algerian war of independence, to make a joint film about what our war was, he literally jumped for joy.

Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors - Club Free Time
June 03, 2019 - New York

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled "Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie's New York."

Indecent Advances: A Hidden History of True Crime and Prejudice Before Stonewall - Club Free Time
June 04, 2019 - New York

A skillful hybrid of true crime and social history that examines the relationship between the media and popular culture in the portrayal of crimes against gay men in the decades before Stonewall. Stories of murder have never been just about killers and victims. Instead, crime stories take the shape of their times and reflect cultural notions and prejudices. In his first book, Indecent Advances, James Polchin recovers and recounts queer stories from the crime pages—often lurid and euphemistic—that reveal the hidden history of violence against gay men. Published in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising on June 28, 1969, James Polchin's Indecent Advances investigates how queer men navigated a society that criminalized them and displayed little compassion for the violence they endured. Polchin and Eric Marcus (host of Making Gay History) will discuss this revelatory and meticulously researched book, and its "forgotten" chapter of queer history.

Mind Beyond Brain: Buddhism Science, and the Paranormal - Club Free Time
June 04, 2019 - New York

Among the most profound questions we confront are the nature of what and who we are as conscious beings, and how the human mind relates to the rest of what we consider reality. For millennia, philosophers, scientists, and religious thinkers have attempted answers, perhaps none more meaningful today than those offered by neuroscience and by Buddhism. The encounter between these two worldviews has spurred ongoing conversations about what science and Buddhism can teach each other about mind and reality. In Mind Beyond Brain, the neuroscientist David E. Presti, with the assistance of other distinguished researchers, explores how evidence for anomalous phenomena--such as near-death experiences, apparent memories of past lives, apparitions, experiences associated with death, and other so-called psi or paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition--can influence the Buddhism-science conversation.

He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi.

They know that making a hat for a newborn baby isn't just about crafting something small but appreciating the beginnings of life, which sometimes helps make peace with the endings. They know that if you knit your boyfriend a sweater, your relationship will most likely be over before the last stitch. Alanna Okun knows that crafting keeps her anxiety at bay.

Against the Sun: Photographs and Architecture - Club Free Time
June 05, 2019 - New York

This show unites two photographic processes, the work of Tahereh Fallahzadeh and Fia Backström. As one of the few female photographers to pursue unorthodox and experimental photography as a mode of fine art while working in an academic context in Iran, Tahereh Fallahzadeh's work asserts a politics and an emotional resonance unique to the history of photography. Fallahzadeh's mostly small scale traditional darkroom photographs combine elements of collage, photograms, and chemical marks through intuitive processes in a distinct manner that feels as much rooted in the history of photography as it is in a contemporary discourse. Fia Backström's work encompasses a diverse range of mediums including photography, writing, installation and performance through which she agitates the social life of language and materials. Her work oscillates between different discourses relating politics, authorship and the capacity of images to generate meaning. Backström's work has often included unconventional exhibition designs, performative work, and frequently exists through collaboration

Saturday's Child: A Daughter's Memoir - Club Free Time
June 05, 2019 - New York

An only child, Deborah Burns grew up in prim 1950s America in the shadow of her beautiful, unconventional, rule-breaking mother, Dorothy--a red-haired beauty who looked like Rita Hayworth and skirted norms with a style and flare that made her the darling of men and women alike. Married to the son of a renowned Italian family with ties to the underworld, Dorothy fervently eschewed motherhood and domesticity, turning Deborah over to her spinster aunts to raise while she was the star of a vibrant social life. As a child, Deborah revered her charismatic mother, but Dorothy was a woman full of secrets with a troubled past--a mistress of illusion whose love seemed just out of her daughter's grasp. In vivid, lyrical prose, Saturday's Child tells the story of Deborah's eccentric upbringing and her quest in midlife, long after her parents' death, to uncover the truth about her mother and their complex relationship. No longer under the spell of her maternal goddess, but still caught in a wrenching cycle of love and longing, Deborah must finally confront the reality of her mother's legacy--and finally claim her own.

The Tribalization of Politics: How Rush Limbaugh's Race-Baiting Rhetoric on the Obama Presidency Paved the Way for Trump - Club Free Time
June 05, 2019 - New York

"How did we get here?" is one of the essential questions right now in American politics. How did we go from a country that elected Barack Obama twice to one that, popular vote loss aside, elected Donald Trump? Two words: Rush Limbaugh. Ian Reifowitz's The Tribalization of Politics explores how the conservative radio host "tribalized" our politics through his racially divisive, falsehood-ridden portrayal of President Obama. By playing and preying on white anxiety, Limbaugh laid the groundwork for the election of a president who essentially adopted his view of the Obama presidency.

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)

June 06, 2019 - New York

Cheryl Dunye emerged as part of the "queer new wave" of young filmmakers of the 1990s. Often set within a domestic or personal context, her stories foreground issues of race, sexuality, and identity.

She has made over 15 films, including The Watermelon Woman, HBO’s Stranger Inside, The Owls, and My Baby’s Daddy. Dunye has directed for many episodic series, including Ava Duverney’s Queen Sugar, Dear White People, and David Makes Man. At the event, Dunye will receive the annual José Muñoz Award.

June 07, 2019 - New York

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis closes the season with a new collaboration bridging visual art and jazz composition. In partnership with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, JLCO members have spent the past year exploring centuries' worth of American art, ranging from masterworks to lesser-known gems in the Museum's collection. Each musician was asked to select a single work of art as inspiration for a new original composition. This new collection of music will be performed by the JLCO for the first time tonight. Every song will be accompanied by a visual display of the artwork that inspired it, transforming Rose Theater into a one-of-a-kind art gallery. Thanks to a close collaboration between Jazz at Lincoln Center's light technicians and the Crystal Bridges team, each work of art will be presented in a way that highlights key details connecting it to the live music. This special event expands the JLCO's Jazz and Art songbook for the first time in a decade.

Advocating Overlord: The D-Day Strategy and the Atomic Bomb - Club Free Time
June 07, 2019 - New York

"Well, there it is. It won't work, but you must bloody well make it," said the chief of Britain's military leaders, when he gave orders to begin planning for what became known as Operation Overlord. While many view D-Day as one of the most successful operations of World War II, most aren't aware of the intensive year of planning and political tension between the Allies that preceded the amphibious military landing on June 6, 1944. This intriguing history reveals how President Franklin D. Roosevelt altered his attitude toward Winston Churchill and became an advocate for Operation Overlord. Philip Padgett challenges the known narrative of this watershed moment in history and illuminates the diplomatic link between Normandy and the atomic bomb. He shows how the Allies came to agree on a liberation strategy that began with D-Day—and the difficult forging of British and American scientific cooperation that produced the atomic bomb. At its core, this story is about how a new generation of leaders found the courage to step beyond national biases in a truly allied endeavor to carry out one of history's most successful military operations. Philip Padgett spent forty years working in natio... (read more)

Slick Woods shines in Sam De Jong’s raw charmer about a scrappy New Yorker with a plan to make it big.

Her big break surely awaits, she’s just got to pick up that golden fur coat she’s had her eye on first. And land a role as a dancer in a hip-hop video. And keep child welfare services from separating her from Sherrie and Supreme, after their mother is locked up. Holding onto those dreams isn’t easy when fate has placed such daunting obstacles in her path. With "Goldie," Dutch director Sam de Jong has delivered a real New York film: raw and glamorous, unflinchingly realistic and relentlessly optimistic, with a ton of heart and at least as much attitude. 7:30 PM - Doors Open 8:00 PM - Live Music 8:30 PM - Film Begins 10:00 PM - Q&A 10:15 PM - After-Party

June 09, 2019 - New York

On Sunday, June 9, 2019, Bobtown will host a record release show for their long-awaited fourth full-length CD 'Chasing the Sun' at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2 at 7:00pm. This is a free show—doors open at 6:30. Rockwood is located at 196 Allen Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side. 'Chasing the Sun' will be officially released in July of this year, and advance copies of the album will be available at this show. The NYC-based quintet Bobtown has been a band for over ten years, and never has their growth been more apparent then in this latest production. Since their first, eponymous, release in 2011, an obvious transformation has been their expansion of instrumentation, but a more subtle musical journey is reflected in their stories. The folksy narratives that have dominated much of their earlier work are still present, but these tales now accompany contemporary, personal compositions on empowerment, overcoming internal conflict, and the universal threads of love and loss. All in all, 'Chasing the Sun' is a collection of songs demonstrating the range and experiences of four authors navigating a course through middle age who've managed to stick together through the ups and downs of...

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.

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.

Zen A.M. - Theater for the New City
Through June 16, 2019 - NY

Theater for the New City presents "Zen A.M." by Natalie Menna. Comedy of New Age manners and mores is set among the "worried creatives" of post-9/11 New York. Since classical times, artists have always had to reconcile the demands of their patrons with their own artistic integrity. In the 21st century, the patrons' demands can come from both the left and right. "Zen A.M." illustrates the artists' conundrum, nesting it in present-day issues of class identification, compassion, cultural identity and creative resistance. Andrew Block directs. The play is a story of laughable characters straining to act rationally when faced with difficult decisions of artistic integrity.  Bruno, a 9/11 survivor, has abandoned his lucrative Wall Street career to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a painter. However, money is running out and his jealous, excitable yet pragmatic girlfriend--a fact-checker for a right wing media outlet--is set on getting married.   Bruno's guru/artistic collaborator is a New Age life coach named Chang. Bruno's best friend is a podiatrist named Hal, who is married to Rachael, a nouveaux riche woman who is part time Feng Shui consultant, jewelry designer and board ...

Written and directed by Julia Jarcho and designed by Ásta Bennie Hostetter, Jenny Seastone, and Ben Williams.

Dietz creates highly eroticized imagery, drawing upon disparate subjects and styles ranging from masterworks of the Italian Renaissance to the vibrant aesthetic of the Burning Man festival. He applies acrylic paint to several of his prints in order to add texture and give his works a heightened sense of tactility and sensuality.

Cyrilla Mozenter: See Why - Lesley Heller Gallery
Through June 30, 2019 - New York

Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present, See Why, an exhibition of new work by Cyrilla Mozenter. A follow-up to her previous exhibition with the gallery—the failed utopian (2015)—See Why continues Mozenter's focus on wool felt sculptures, large scale wall-hanging felt works, and delicate framed works on paper. The artworks further explore Mozenter's abstract narratives of text and sound—animated through personal pictographic imagery—and the deconstruction of letters as both images and sounds. Mozenter's practice is influenced by the writings of Gertrude Stein. Explorations of the phonetic sounds of letters have also been a reoccurring element in Mozenter's work, doubling at times as the works' titles. The letters and titles are playful and absurd; and defy singular interpretations.

JF Lynch: Word Drawings - Lesley Heller Gallery
Through June 30, 2019 - New York

"If you set pen to paper, is the letter "i" a written sound sign or a drawn glyph of a standing figure? When you look at a narrative drawing and understand the story, have you not just read the drawing?" Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present the first New York solo show of JF Lynch in our Project Space. Lynch is an artist known for his monochromatic works that feature abstracted letters and words set within a dark expanse. Working predominantly with charcoal on paper or canvas, Lynch's work bridges painting, drawing, and writing.

Brilliant Opening Reception: Thursday, June 6, 6-9pm Exhibition Dates: June 6 - June 30, 2019 7 Franklin Place New York, NY 10013 May 25, 2019 For Immediate Release: NYA Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition focused on the theme of brilliance, as curated by Shane Townley. In media ranging from painting to sculpture to skateboards, over forty artists will examine the formal properties of light and illumination as well as consider the idea of artistic genius or brilliance. Throughout the history of art, artists have manipulated light in order to suggest or symbolize intellectual enlightenment, spiritual awakening, and a host of other representational purposes. In addition to exploring the nature of light, the cultural producers assembled for this exhibition will probe contemporary notions of the artist, the practitioner, the creator. Overall, they present a multiplicity of responses to this historic discourse and shed new light on how we think about the role of the artist in the twenty-first century. In Rafael Colon’s masterful appropriation of Gustav Klimt’s infamous painting The Kiss (1907-08), he re-positions the subjects of the original painting ont... (read more)

Warhol Women - Lévy Gorvy
Through July 05, 2019 - New York

Un art autre centres on the innovative reassessments of abstraction that emerged in postwar Paris.

#StarringJohnCho Exhibition - Pearl River Mart Gallery
Through July 08, 2019 - New York

It’s not just a hashtag — it’s a cultural movement. Screenwriter, creative strategist, and cultural activist William Yu started the viral #StarringJohnCho project to address the lack of Asian American representation in Hollywood and to bring to life the idea of an Asian American leading actor.

Reminiscent of a movie theater lobby, the installation invites viewers to the imagined world of John Cho as a lead actor, and makes tangible the possibilities for a new kind of movie going experience for Asian Americans.

The Leo Castelli Gallery opened in New York at 4 East 77th Street on February 10, 1957. In 1958 the gallery gave Jasper Johns his first exhibition.

These essential qualities secured his position as possibly the most respected and influential advocate for contemporary art of his time. In 1999 the Leo Castelli Gallery moved to the Upper East Side, where it has since been located. The gallery is now directed by Castelli's wife, Barbara Bertozzi Castelli. Ms. Bertozzi Castelli is an art historian whose specialization is ... (read more)

Exhibition opening: Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling - Bohemian National Hall
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

[2nd Floor] An opening for the exhibition "Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling" featuring photographs by Czech documentary photographer Dana Kyndrova who examines the many facets of women's lives. The presented photographs - shot primarily in the former Czechoslovakia and later in the Czech Republic, but also in some Western countries - show the precious moments of daily life, child birth, the tensions of school exams, falling in love. The project called "Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling" includes photographs from the 1970s - 1990s, and its aim is to capture the life of a woman in its full variety, from birth to death. The project is divided into seven parts – adolescence, maternity and family, fun, work, eroticism, faith, and old age. Apart from the objective chronology of life's pilgrimage of a human being, or more precisely, of a woman, the photographs perceive the principal life values, which accompany and influence us during our entire existence. The theme is more or less general; thus the question is not to portray a particular environment or a characteristics of a certain country. One could say the woman portrayed is a „European" woman. A substantial part of the photograp... (read more)

The Female Gaze: Women Surrealists in the Americas and Europe - Heather James Fine Art
Through July 31, 2019 - New York

Piercing through the male gaze, works by leading American, British, Latin American, and Polish female Surrealistartists will be on view at Heather James Fine Art, New York, from May 8 – July 31, 2019. The Female Gaze: Women Surrealists in the Americas and Europe reframes the history of the movement by focusing exclusively on the pivotal role played by female artists as independent from—rather than in relationship to—their male counterparts. Featuring paintings, sculpture, mixed media, and collages spanning from 1938 to 2008, the exhibition also seeks to reveal the underlying political, social, and cultural attitudes that influenced ideas of gender. An opening reception will be held on May 8, from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue including essays by Gloria Orenstein, Professor Emerita, Comparative Literature and Gender Studies, University of Southern California, and Patryk Tomaszewski, an art historian at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Orenstein noted, "I have been fortunate to know women Surrealists such as Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini, and their work speaks to me on so many levels both spiritually and viscerally. I am thrilled that He... (read more)

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)

Walt Whitman: Bard of Democracy - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 15, 2019 - Manhattan

"Comrades! I am the bard of Democracy," Walt Whitman announced in a notebook in 1859. Over his 73 years (1819–1892), he essentially made good on that claim. From humble origins in Long Island and Brooklyn, he earned a global audience that never stops growing. On the two hundredth anniversary of his birth he continues to speak to new generations. The exhibition explores Whitman's process of self-invention, from his early years as a journalist, through the early 1850s when Whitman began to write more privately and poetically, to his final years. Whitman not only sounded a "barbaric yawp" over the rooftops of the world, but he also helped his country to reconcile its famous contradictions through his inclusivity and his extraordinary body of work. Several of Whitman's notebooks will be on display, as well as his portraitist's copy of Leaves of Grass (1855) and the famous letter written to Whitman by Ralph Waldo Emerson commending that book. The exhibition will establish Whitman's unblinking witness to the Civil War and display the great poems that he wrote in honor of the martyred president including "O Captain! My Captain!" Also on view are documents from Oscar Wilde, Hart Crane, Fe... (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.

E. v. Day: Breaking the Glass Ceiling - Children's Museum of the Arts
Through October 27, 2019 - New York

Known for her gravity-defying suspension sculptures that explore themes of science fiction, space, gender, and humor, E. V. Day illuminates contradictions in gender roles and stretches the confines of social stereotypes. In her new site-specific installation in the central Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery, E. V. Day will use turnbuckles, monofilament, and angle iron to build multiple suspended trajectories in the ceiling, using the columns and walls as mounting points. Day will employ chains, brass rods, elastic cords, and hardware to build tension, highlight resistance, and imply velocity. The ceiling installation will be complemented by shattered glass images displayed around the perimeter of the gallery referencing cosmic aspirations — the strong desire to achieve something that might feel just outside of one's reach.

Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs - The Vilcek Foundation
Through November 13, 2019 - New York

Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs brings together drawings, paintings, and photography by the American Modernist artist, while examining the confluence of two seemingly disparate series completed later in his life, Torn Signs and Semana Santa. Though their subject matter is drastically different—one is inspired by tattered advertisements on the streets of New York, while the other depicts observers of Holy Week in Seville, Spain—Crawford connects them through his extraordinary visual memory, working method, and sense of spatial organization. The convergence of these two incredible series culminates in Torn Signs, 1974-76, the powerful, large-scale painting that sits at the thematic center of the exhibition.

The heavy themes of mental illness, suicide, and struggling families are confronting, but as they become more prominent in real life, the need to portray these issue seriously in theatre is more crucial than ever. Dear Evan Hansen handles these themes with grace and honesty. It makes a point of giv... (read more)

Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depict... (read more)
