Spring Weekend: Urn on an Empty Stage - Bohemian National Hall
May 12, 2019 - New York

[1st Floor] Rehearsal for Truth Theater Festival's Spring Weekend presents a stage reading of "Urn on an Empty Stage" by Slovak playwright Martin Cicvak. In "Urn on an Empty Stage," Martin Cicvak brilliantly explores the dynamics between authoritative figures and their "victims," particularly women. Using the Greek myth of Europa, the play challenges the issues of gender equality and the status of women in today's society. The story begins when three actresses and an opera diva meeting on an empty stage. They have come to say their last farewell to a great director whose ashes they have brought with them in an urn. With him, the women want to bury memories of career highlights along with recollections of the traumas the director caused them. But they are getting stuck in the preparation of the ceremony. They can't come to an accord about its nature, or even agree about what has been and what is to come. At its heart, the play is a testimony to the complex relationships in the world of theater - the three actresses fight and detest each other, but also find themselves in tender harmony. "Urn on an Empty Stage" by Martin Cicvak, translated by Katarina Briggler, directed by Michael... (read more)

Spring Weekend: Puppenhaus.Treatment - Bohemian National Hall
May 12, 2019 - New York

[1st Floor Cinema] Join us for Rehearsal for Truth Theater Festival's Spring Weekend presentantion of a stage reading of PUPPENHAUS.TREATMENT by Polish playwright Magda Fertacz. In "Puppenhaus.Treatment," Fertacz examines the issues of treason and collaborationism from the perspective of alternative codes of memory: "Traitors to the country," "collaborators," and "renegades" are World War II figures that have re-entered the national and political discourse of today. By constructing a theatrical fantasy about wartime, the artists are asking questions about the stigmatization, punishment and judgment of individuals who, for a variety of reasons, renounce heroism and refuse to fight and make sacrifices for their country. How is historical memory and moral evaluation of past choices and actions constructed? What are the limits of interpreting and fantasizing about history charged with trauma and heroism? How can collective memory be healed? "Puppenhaus.Treatment" by Magda Fertacz, translated by Artur Zapalowski, directed by Zishan Ugurlu. Free and open to the public. Space is limited, on first come, first served basis. RSVP online at Eventbrite.com.

Grandaisy Bakery: Piccolo Pizzaiolo Making Bianca Con Pecorin - Brookfield Place
May 12, 2019 - New York

As a boy in Guatemala, Julio remembers watching his father, a baker, mill wheat using giant stones to pulverize grain into flour. Even though his father produced some of the best bread in their small village using centuries old techniques, Julio never wanted to follow in his dad's footsteps. Instead he mastered the intricate Mayan craft of fabric weaving called treadle (or foot loom). It was a seemingly unrelated skill but one that provided invaluable training for his hands. This would later serve him in his future calling in America. At the age of 18, Julio immigrated to the United States and found his life coming full circle as he entered the world of baking. There wasn't a big demand for Mayan weaving but New York was in the early stages of a bread renaissance and bakers were in demand.

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. This claustrophobic setting will become Sal's canvas to rapidly flow, like the fast winds that menace the building, in a journey of self-discovery while facing the ghosts from the past and the dreads of the future. Between boxed wine, ayahuasca and maybe a séance, it is disaster that brings us closer together and true intimacy is found when we least expect it. End Time: 8:15 pm. Category: Arts | Performing Arts | Theatre. Sub-Categories: Arts | Performing Arts | Theatre | Stage.

Organizer of Loved Well (Not Wisely): Paul Robeson and Uta Hagen's Othello - Organizer The New York Public Library For The Performing Arts At Lincoln Center
May 13, 2019 - New York

A collage of archival audio, photographs, semi-staged readings, and expert commentary transport you 75 years into theatre history. In October 1943, the Theatre Guild opened a revolutionary and courageous Othello, the first major American Shakespeare production starring an African American actor, Paul Robeson, opposite a white leading lady, Uta Hagen. As the play churned to its dramatic end, the tragic lovers shared the fateful kiss – Broadway's first interracial kiss. Hagen's career was forever changed, as her association with Robeson condemned her to the Hollywood blacklist. The production set the record for the longest run of any Shakespeare play on Broadway, a record which remains unbroken. Join us for an exploration of this historic and influential production, as we celebrate the centennial of Uta Hagen. (If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email.

Two for the Road - Dixon Place
May 14, 2019 - New York

George Emilio Sanchez In this monthly work-in-progress showing, renowned performance artist and activist Sanchez will develop his upcoming production, XIV, which premieres at Dixon Place in June 2019. The show melds autobiography and history to convey the injustices racialized communities face as they fight for 'equal protection of the laws'. Revolving around a 1946 class action lawsuit by 5 Mexican-American families to have their children enrolled in Orange County, CA public schools by applying the 14th Amendment, XIV serves as a creative counterpoint to the current events surrounding the realities of undocumented 'dreamers' and the vitriolic calls for building a Wall. With humor and spoken word testimony as poetic-protest, Sanchez embodies a response to what we are seeing unfold before us as marginalized people struggle to survive within a broken landscape, pitting constitutional ideals against their experience being treated as unequal and inferior. This courageous new work exposes the country's long history of conflicting narratives that fall to one side of the color line.

His quirky, native new york, piano-man sound has found its largest audience in Holland, where he headlined Amsterdam's legendary venue, Paradiso.

Passageways: Songs of Connection, Abnormal & Sublime - Dixon Place
May 16, 2019 - New York

Written, performed, composed by Amy Oestreicher Passageways explores the physical and emotional repairs that accompany the path to recovery from a decade of the playwright's autobiographical trauma, including sexual abuse by a trusted mentor, rapidly succeeded by a gastrectomy, coma, organ failure, six years unable to eat or drink a drop of fluid, 28 reconstructive surgeries and the long-winded journey of PTSD that follows. This multidisciplinary narrative explores trauma through the archetypal hero's journey, incorporating live-painting, movement, and original music while illustrated by mixed-media art, and visual media. The story follows the exploration of a woman redefining 'home' after trauma. She recreates herself through the discovery of the arts and is able to reclaim her voice and rejoin her community. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder begins a call to adventure through an archetypal hero's journey.

Big Band B-3: Joey DeFrancesco with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra - Jazz at Lincoln Center
May 17, 2019 - New York

Joey DeFrancesco—arguably the greatest jazz organist alive—joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for the first time. With two 61-note keyboards, a 25-note bass pedal board controlled by foot, and multiple custom drawbars, the Hammond organ is practically a full band by itself. This expansive instrument is rarely paired with a big band, but it adds a rich new dimension when the musicians are up to the challenge. Tonight, DeFrancesco and the JLCO will explore two classic records that defied the organ's typical small group confines and left fans craving more. First up is Duke Ellington's New Orleans Suite, a lesser-known and delightfully varied repertoire of Ellington excellence. The original recording featured organ only on the gospel-tinged "Blues for New Orleans," but DeFrancesco and JLCO trombonist Vincent Gardner are excitedly cooking up new arrangements to expand its role. The second half of the show explores Oliver Nelson's unique take on Peter & The Wolf, a playful suite full of fiery solos by legendary organist Jimmy Smith. DeFrancesco is one of jazz's most entertaining and stunningly virtuosic musicians, and he has wanted to play this music with the JLCO for a ... (read more)

Cody Johnson - Irving Plaza
May 17, 2019 - New york

When Cody Johnson's Cowboy Like Me debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in January 2014, jaws dropped in offices all over Nashville. "I got a lot of 'Who is this kid?'" Johnson says with a laugh two years later. "I love that. That was a new horizon. And I'm gonna work to make sure people know exactly who I am." Johnson does that from the start in Gotta Be Me, a follow-up project that's loaded with solid country instrumentation and winsome melodies. In the first minute alone, he paints himself as a cowboy, raised on outlaw country, who drinks too much, fights too much and won't apologize for having an opinion. By the time the 14-track journey is over, he's shared his rodeo history in "The Only One I Know (Cowboy Life)," demonstrated his woman's influence in "With You I Am" and paid homage to his gospel heritage in "I Can't Even Walk."

This exhibition marks the final installment in a series of exhibitions curated by MA students enrolled in Curating Contemporary Art. The exhibition, curated by A. Morgan McKendry, will transform the gallery space into that of a doctor’s waiting room and will use both art performers and artworks to point to the darker sides of a capitalistic healthcare system. SYMPTOMATIC introduces viewers to a waiting room of the uncanny. What exactly is it that we are waiting for; and, at what cost? SYMPTOMATIC examines the unsettling aspects of a capitalistic healthcare system that is an incredible burden to so many; it can be inaccessible, absurdly expensive, and often is obscenely difficult to navigate.

Diary of a Chambermaid / Le journal d'une femme de chambre - MoMA
May 18, 2019 - New York

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather: In Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's sadomasochistic updating of Octave Mirbeau's Dreyfusard novel of 1900, a perfectly cast Jeanne Moreau is Celestine, the refined Parisian chambermaid who slowly lays bare the toxic underbelly of a fading aristocratic family in the provinces between the wars, humoring the lady of the manor in her cold ministrations over staff and house; the lady's dirty old father in his predations of animal and maidservant; and the estate's gardener-coachman in his fascist enthusiasms for God, country, and (she grimly suspects) a little girl's innocence.

Belle de jour - MoMA
May 18, 2019 - New York

In Belle de jour, Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's mystery box of dreams within flashbacks within fantasies, Catherine Deneuve embodies the Surrealist ideal of femininity as at once virginal and vampirical—bored housewife by night, whore by day—martyring herself to male desire, to painful guilty pleasures of the flesh, to achieve her own desire. "[S]omehow, letting the color in—and this is Buñuel's first color film—has changed the emotional quality of his obsessions in a completely unpredictable way…. The movie ends with a dark ambiguity to what has gone on before, but every detail has been carefully thought out that seeing it again is like seeing it in another key" (Renata Adler).

MARY, MARY - Gene Frankel Theatre
Through May 18, 2019 - New York

Mary is a compulsively wise-cracking magazine editor who uses her sense of humor to shield her insecurities, while Bob is an infuriatingly sensible publisher. 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. Throw in Bob's young fiancée Tiffany; his old war buddy, the handsome and single film hero whose star is in decline, Dirk Winston; and one major snow storm--and we begin to wonder, will Mary and Bob recognize that they are soul mates in time to get back together before they each end up in the arms of another? Written by Jean Kerr Directed by Shay Gines Produced by Retro Productions

Kids Eat History: The Story of School Lunch - Henry Street Settlement
May 19, 2019 - New York

The Museum at Eldridge Street is heading offsite to the Henry Street Settlement for some food fun for the family! Bring your appetite to this interactive program that explores the history of school lunches in New York City public schools and its impact on the kids of the Lower East Side – at the very place where it all began, the Henry Street Settlement. At the turn of the 20th century, Henry Street’s Lillian Wald was one of the most vocal advocates of feeding the city’s poor immigrant children a nutritious lunch at school. Like other Progressive Era activists, she believed children would learn better if they weren’t hungry. It sounds elementary today, but in Wald’s time, it was a radical idea. And what might seem radical to us today are the foods on those early school lunch menus! (Boiled peas in a cone, anyone?) Picky eaters, prepare, because you’ll have a chance to taste some of those early school lunch menus. Recommended for kids five and up and their adult companions. For tickets, please call 212-219-0302 or visit kidseat.eventbrite.com

MIECZYSLAW WEINBERG: THE CENTENNIAL - Stephen Wise Free Synagogue
May 19, 2019 - New York

MIECZYSLAW WEINBERG (1919-1996) was one of the most prolific composers in history who's Holocaust-related opera "The Passenger" was the centerpiece of a 2014 Lincoln Center Festival, and who's worldwide recognition is about to reach a long awaited peak. Learn more at www.mweinberg.info Program 24 Cello Preludes, opus 100 (1969) Performed by noted Latvian-born cellist, prizewinner of the Tchaikovsky Competition, recipient of a 1990 Avery Fisher Career Grant, and first to record composer's entire legacy for unaccompanied cello, YOSIF FEIGELSON. Preludes are resembling a series of very vivid paintings, contain many different styles of writing, elements of Slavic, Jewish, and other ethnic music. As such, this work has an intricate connection to and will be juxtaposed with the famed Pictures at an Exhibition by MODEST MUSSORGSKY (1839 -1881) performed by the brilliant world-class pianist, ILYA YAKUSHEV.

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie / Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

"Luis Buñuel's 1972 comic masterpiece, about three well-to-do couples who try and fail to have a meal together, is perhaps the most perfectly achieved and executed of all his late French films. The film proceeds by diverse interruptions, digressions, and interpolations (including dreams and tales within tales) that, interestingly enough, identify the characters, their class, and their seeming indestructibility with narrative itself. One of the things that makes this film as charming as it is, despite its radicalism, and helped Buñuel win his only Oscar is the perfect cast, many of whom bring along nearly mythic associations acquired in previous French films. Frightening, funny, profound, and mysterious" (Jonathan Rosenbaum).

The Phantom of Liberty / Le fantôme de la liberté - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's absurdist parables, paradoxes, and comic inversions come fast and furious in The Phantom of Liberty: the tableau vivant of Goya's revolutionary painting The Third of May 1808, which proclaimed a modern age of resistance and terror; the little girl who hides in plain sight; the society dinner table as public toilet; the pornographic postcards of famous European monuments. In this runic and anarchical fever dream, unlike any since Buñuel's own surrealist 1930 masterpiece L'Age d'or, the film's all-star cast of Monica Vitti, Michel Piccoli, Jean-Claude Brialy, and company find themselves prisoners of their own making.

That Obscure Object of Desire / Cet obscur objet du désir - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

Buñuel's last film goes up in flames, literally, in a destructive (or procreative?) act of terrorism, the climax of rich widower Fernando Rey's exquisitely tortured pursuit of the devilishly elusive "Concha" (played, alternately, by Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina).

Through May 19, 2019 - New York

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)

Hiroshi Wada: The First New York Solo Exhibition - Agora Gallery
Through May 31, 2019 - NYC

Japanese artist Hiroshi Wada is a calligraphy painter. Wada studied the ancient tradition of “shodo”—brush and ink drawing on rice paper— with a great master of this art form. While his art retains the spontaneity and playfulness of a child’s drawing, in fact it takes years of apprenticeship to achieve their effortless look. Wada’s aim, however, is not the traditional “sho.” The artist believes in the importance of modernizing this conventional practice. He aspires to create calligraphy that is modern, even avant-garde, yet still rooted in tradition. When he writes characters, he forgets what he has learned and starts with a “clean slate”, drawing like a child. For Wada, calligraphy is a way to bring joy and playfulness to others. Wada believes that while life’s hurdles may range from personal failures to cataclysmic disasters, art has the capacity to empower, heal, and create peace. Wada’s background as a track-and-field athlete reflects in the explosive energy and near-physical intensity to his gestural compositions. Hiroshi Wada: The First New York Solo Exhibition opens at May 11, 2019 and will be on display until May 31, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, May 1... (read more)

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of In and Out of the Garden, a group exhibition featuring paintings and mixed-media installations on the state of the natural world, the creatures that inhabit it, and the silent joy that comes from spending time in nature.

Ranging from complete abstraction to realism, the exhibition explores a range of image-making techniques and styles.

At once organic and precise, the work forces us to reexamine our relationship with the natural world and our definition of beauty.

Mean Girls - August-Wilson Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

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.

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. Un art autre, a term meaning 'Art of another kind' was coined by legendary art critic and curator Michel Tapié in 1952. The artists involved provided a distinctively European parallel to the American Abstract Expressionist movement. This exhibition will offer an insight into the allure of Paris in the 1950s and '60s: a hub of cross-cultural exchange, intellectual activity, and artistic re-invention. It will feature works by artists Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell, Jean Paul Riopelle, Pierre Soulages, and Zao Wou-Ki.

#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. Now the hashtag is brought to life in a multimedia installation. 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. See in person what movies like The Avengers, Jurassic World, and (500) Days of Summer would look like with an Asian American star. And, become a superhero yourself with the show's interactive portion! Join us in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month for the opening reception: May 18, 5 to 7pm. Free and open to the public.

Dot, Point, Period - Castelli Gallery
Through July 20, 2019 - New York

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. Within 10 years, the gallery became the international epicenter for Pop, Minimal, and Conceptual Art, showing among others Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, and Keith Sonnier. In 1971 the Castelli Gallery opened a second space at 420 West Broadway in SoHo. During this decade, several Conceptual artists joined the gallery, including Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner and Hanne Darboven. Leo Castelli, the gallery's founder, had an unparalleled eye for quality, combined with his extraordinary skill for nurturing and promoting new art and artists. 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.

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.

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)

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.

OH, THE STORIES YOU’LL HEAR… To find out, join us as we explore the lives and loves that lie behind the paintings. The Shady Ladies tour will change the way you see the museum — and art itself — forever. On this fun and informative 2-hour Metropolitan Museum tour, we will learn about: -- The first nude female statue in ancient Greece and the hetaera who modeled for it -- The oiran of the pleasure quarter of 18th century Tokyo -- A Venetian courtesan who published books of poetry -- The official royal mistresses of the French kings -- A royal bastard ...

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.

Dear Evan Hansen - Music Box Theatre
Through December 31, 2019 - New York

Dear Evan Hansen Tickets. Dear Evan Hansen Musical. Dear Evan Hansen Broadway. Dear Evan Hansen is the epitome of a modern musical. The show is set firmly in the mid 2010's with technology and social media at the core of its plot, catering directly to its target audience of the teenagers and young adults of today while also connecting to people of all ages. Winning the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical, the crew behind the production take full advantage of their target audience. Musical theatre is becoming increasingly more popular with young people, so with it's music, characters and plot, Dear Evan Hansen is almost irresistible to them. The show, with music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and book by Steven Levenson, deals with some pretty heavy subject matter, but they're issues that are very hot topics at the moment. 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)

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)
