Chris Potter Underground - Village Vanguard
September 01, 2019 - New York

The first incarnation of Chris Potter’s Underground Quartet in 2006 was a full-volume blast of collective virtuosity and urban grime infused with the spiky bass lines and rhythmic layers of Craig Taborn’s Fender Rhodes piano. [Today] the grit and fluency remains intact and are equally compelling but are delivered at an acoustic level more in keeping with the saxophonist’s current label, ECM. Taborn is replaced by holding-role bassist Fima Ephron, making for a more orthodox sax and rhythm jazz quartet that brings out individual skill as much as crunchy collectivity. And with Potter and guitarist Adam Rogers fully focused and playing at full stretch, skill is in generous supply.

This is Like That - Theater For The New City (Community Theater)
September 01, 2019 - New York City

Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of “This is Like That” by Michael Sean Cirelli, a solo performance piece in the form of an eccentric slide lecture with a temperamental carousel projector and an apple. The play is a collaboration between Cirelli and director Emerie Snyder with performances 8/31 at 8PM, 9/1 at 5PM, 9/2 at 6:30pm, 9/3 at 9PM, and 9/4 at 6:30PM. After unexpectedly realizing that he’s meant to be giving a lecture to everyone around him, a befuddled language professor attempts to explain the beauty he finds in language—only he cannot find the words. A piece for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren’t. “This is Like That” is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.

Little Rock - The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
September 01, 2019 - New York

Little Rock tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city's formerly segregated central high school. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow south. On the cusp of the Civil Rights movement, a changing world watched as these nine children from Arkansas battled for their rights with only a book and pencil. At once harrowing and hopeful, LITTLE ROCK brings urgently to life the Nine's untold personal stories of challenge and resilience, conjuring memories of America not so long ago. From writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, this deeply moving play honors the bravery of these young heroes and asks audiences: Would you have had the courage?

European Art - The Robert Lehman Collection - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Robert Lehman Collection—one of the most extraordinary private art collections ever assembled in the United States—was presented to the Metropolitan Museum by the Robert Lehman Foundation in 1969, following Mr. Lehman's death. The collection of nearly three thousand works of art, which had been assembled by Mr. Lehman, a longtime Museum trustee, and by his father, Philip, is housed today in The Robert Lehman Wing. The galleries, which opened to the public in 1975, were designed to evoke the ambience of Lehman's own house on West 54th Street in New York City, with wall fabrics, draperies, furniture, and rugs that set the objects in an intimate, personal context. Thanks to Lehman's acute connoisseurship and adroit negotiation of the art market, the collection is extremely strong in several areas of European art. Its approximately three hundred paintings favor the Italian Renaissance, especially the Sienese school, and the early northern masters, but range as far afield as the Fauves and beyond. Its more than seven hundred Old Master drawings include a rich trove of eighteenth-century Venetian works as well as other important Italian, French, and northern examples. The remaining ...

Medieval Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The period between ancient and modern times in Western civilization, known as the Middle Ages, extends from the fourth to the early sixteenth century—that is, roughly from the Fall of Rome to the beginning of the Renaissance in Northern Europe. The Metropolitan Museum's collection of medieval art, one of the richest in the world, encompasses the art of this long and complex period in all of its many phases, from its pre-Christian antecedents in Western Europe through the early Christian, Byzantine, Romanesque, and Gothic periods. Though administered by a single curatorial department, the Museum's medieval holdings are exhibited in two different locations: in several galleries on the first floor of the Main Building on Fifth Avenue, and at The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan devoted to the art of medieval Europe in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park. The medieval objects in the Main Building, of which there are more than six thousand, display a somewhat broader geographical and temporal range—pre-medieval European antiquities (that are not Greek or Roman) from as early as the Bronze Age fall under the department's purview and are exhibited here, as are works of Byzantine ...

Modern Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Department of Modern Art surveys painting, sculpture, drawings and watercolors, decorative arts, design, and architectural representations from about 1900 to the present day in more than 10,000 works, primarily by European and American artists. The Metropolitan Museum has been concerned with the art of its own time, as well as that of the past, since its founding in 1870. Many of the objects acquired as contemporary in the early decades of the Museum's existence are now in the collections of other departments—The American Wing, for instance, or the Department of European Paintings. Those works that entered the collection before the turn of the century and still qualify as "modern" join many, many more acquired over the past hundred years. The strengths of the modern-art collection are housed in the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing. Of particular note are the paintings by members of the School of Paris, such as Braque, Picasso, and Modigliani; paintings and drawings by the circle of early American modernists around Alfred Stieglitz; over ninety works by Paul Klee; large-scale paintings by the postwar Abstract Expressionists; bronzes by Elie Nadelman and Gaston Lachaise; as well as pai...

Musical Instruments - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

Only one curatorial department at the Metropolitan Museum exhibits objects originally meant to appeal as much to the ear as to the eye. It is the Department of Musical Instruments, which holds approximately five thousand examples from six continents and the Pacific Islands, dating from about 300 B.C. to the present. The collection, which is unsurpassed in its comprehensive scope, illustrates the development of musical instruments from all cultures and eras. The instruments, selected for their technical and social importance as well as for their tonal and visual beauty, may be approached in a number of ways: as art objects, as ethnographic record, and as documents of the history of music and performance. Although the greatest strength of the department lies in its encyclopedic nature, categories that are particularly well represented include European and American keyboards, wind instruments from the late seventeenth through the nineteenth century, and instruments of all sorts from non-Western societies. Fifty highlights from the department are presented online, organized by instrument type and, within types, alphabetically by the name of the country of origin. The basic instrument ... (read more)

History of Photography - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's Department of Photographs surveys the history of photography from its invention in the 1830s to the present. The collection of more than 20,000 works is largely European and American, with some representation of other parts of the world, particularly Japan. The Metropolitan's department includes several important collections: The Gilman Paper Company Collection, comprising exceptionally rich holdings in early French, British, and American photography, as well as masterpieces from the turn-of-the-century and modernist periods; The Rubel Collection, with superb examples of British photography from the first three decades of the medium's history; The Alfred Stieglitz Collection, with masterpieces of the Photo-Secession movement (1902–17) and related Pictorialist photography; The Ford Motor Company Collection of American and European photography between the World Wars; and the personal archive of the American photographer Walker Evans (1903–1975). All told, the Museum's collection reveals the medium's breadth of form and function—from documentation to refined aestheticism and from intimate explorations of identity to majestic expressions of the sublime.

Textile Arts - Antonio Ratti Textile Center - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum of Art possesses one of the finest collections of textiles in the world. Encyclopedic in scope, it includes examples from all of the world's civilizations and from almost every period in history. Among the 35,000 pieces (a number which does not reflect the holdings of The Costume Institute) are archaeological fragments, tapestries, carpets, quilts, ecclesiastical vestments, silks, embroideries, laces, velvets, and more, dating from 3000 B.C. to the present. Highlights include late Antique domestic textiles made in Egypt by Christians and pagans alike during the fourth to seventh centuries; silk tapestries and embroideries of the Yuan dynasty, a peak of refinement and complexity in Chinese textiles; a five-medallion "compartment carpet" crafted in Persia during the Safavid period in the early sixteenth century; and the opulent and rare seventeenth-century French embroidered wall panels in the Museum's Louis XIV bedchamber. Previously dispersed among the various curatorial departments according to the cultures that produced them, most of the Museum's textile holdings are now gathered in the Antonio Ratti Textile Center—one of the largest, most technically adv...

Spotlight On The Permanent Collection - Museum of Sex
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

Our newly redesigned Spotlight Gallery allows our patrons to explore sexuality in a way that is personal and pertinent to their own experiences by presenting a wide array of sexual themes and concepts. This gallery offers a sampling of artifacts drawn from the Museum's permanent collection of over 15,000 objects, including works of art, clothing, technological inventions and historical ephemera. The themes currently explored in the gallery are: sex education, sex in art, illustration, anime, kinks, modern commercialized design, photography, sex and technology, the medicialization of sex, representations of gender and identity, as well vibratorsas alternate interpretations of the human body.

Sex Lives Of Animals - Museum of Sex
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Sex Lives of Animals is a celebration of the diversity of animal sexual behavior. This emergent research has resulted in new interpretations, delving into the possible evolutionary benefits of non-reproductive sex, for both individuals and social groups. Set to debut in this exhibition are life-sized animal sculptures custom-made by Rune Olsen. Composed of the "social materials" of newspaper and tape, these pieces explore the physical world with the immediacy and expressiveness of hand drawing. Through the incorporation of human-like glass eyes, the distance between human and animal vanishes, seducing the viewer into a direct interaction with the gaze of the animal. In this "new natural history" the Museum of Sex is presenting an uncensored story of the natural world, moving animal sexuality beyond the confines of reproduction and mating, towards discussions of orientation and cognition. By exploring the most intimate part of life, where it is often said we are most animal like, we can appreciate the significance of research on animal sexuality and, perhaps, extrapolate these concepts to larger issues regarding sexuality in general.

Rare Jade - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

A two-foot-long slice from a jadeite jade boulder provides a spectacular window into the dramatic process that formed this highly prized type of jade. This jadeite started as a small vein, or fracture, over 12 miles underground that was wrenched apart by the collision of two tectonic plates over 35 million years ago. During the shakeup, mineral-rich fluids rose into cracks in Earth's mantle and deposited jadeite rock. As the tectonic plates continued to rub against one another, the veins of jadeite broke and reformed again and again, producing the remarkable emerald green and white swirls. The polished 55-pound slab was recovered from northern Burma.The spectacular jade slab is now on display in the Museum's 77th Street Grand Gallery. Also on display are two delicately carved jade pieces from China, dating from the early 1900s—a nephrite jade vessel fo

Habitat Group Dioramas - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Museum's habitat group dioramas, located extensively throughout its halls, are among the most renowned and beloved exhibits at the Museum. With precise depictions of geographical locations and the careful, anatomically correct mounting of specimens, these stunning dioramas are windows onto a world of animals, their behavior, and their habitats. Moreover, since many of the environments represented have been exploited or degraded, some dioramas preserve places and animals as they no longer exist. The viewer of a habitat group diorama is able to travel not only across continents, but also, in some cases, through time.

Hall of Primitive Mammals - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Hall of Primitive Mammals traces the lower branches of the evolutionary tree of mammals, including such features as the synapsid opening in the skull (a large hole behind the eye socket for muscles that extend to the jaw, found also in early relatives of mammals), the three middle ear bones (used to classify all mammals), and the placenta. These traits correspond to eating, hearing, and reproduction functions, and each represents an evolutionary branch. Included in this hall are monotremes, marsupials, sloths, and armadillos. Some living animals from these groups, such as the platypus, have so many primitive features that they are called "living fossils."

Scales of the Universe - Rose Center for Earth and Space No Planetarium)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York,

A major feature of the Rose Center is the Scales of the Universe exhibit along the 400-foot-long walkway that hugs the glass wall of the cube. This unique exhibit, which employs the facility's architectural features by using the Hayden Sphere as a basis for comparison, explores the vast range of sizes in the cosmos—from the observable universe to our planet to a tiny electron. Along the walkway, stations introduce visitors, by increments of the power of ten, to the relative sizes of atoms, planets, stars, and galaxies, by using text panels, interactive terminals, and both large, overhead and small, rail-mounted models. Enormous, realistically rendered planets, stars, and galaxies-including a nine-foot-diameter model of Jupiter and a model of Saturn with 17-foot-diameter rings-are suspended from the ceiling of the building.

Hall of Northwest Coast Indian - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Hall of Northwest Coast Indians, the Museum's oldest hall, showcases the research conducted during the Museum's first major field expedition, the Jesup North Pacific Expedition (1897-1902), considered one of the most important anthropological field studies ever made. Organized by Museum President Morris K. Jesup and led by Franz Boas (1858-1942), known as the "father of American anthropology," the expedition set out to investigate the cultural and biological links between people living on both sides of the Bering Strait, with the hope of determining whether or not America was first populated by migrations from Asia. The cultures featured in the hall occupy North America's shores from Washington State to southern Alaska. The artifacts, folklore, and artwork displayed document and celebrate the customs and artistry of the Kwakiutl, Haida, Tlingit, Bella Coola, and other peoples. Exhibits include exquisite totem carvings, clothing, tools, and masks.

Eraserhead - IFC Center
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

David Lynch once described his stunning debut feature simply as "a dream of dark and troubling things," but the unclassifiable ERASERHEAD is so much more: an expressionistic headtrip, a Grand Guignol nightmare, a pitch-black comedy of manners, and even a deeply personal allegory about the (post-) nuclear family. Amidst a monochromatic wasteland teeming with smoke and shadows, Jack Nance's wire-haired wage slave Henry struggles to navigate the horrors of mutant offspring, sinister hallucinations and, most terrifying of all, his new in-laws. A midnight movie sensation at the original Waverly Theater, ERASERHEAD returns to 6th Ave.

Office Space - IFC Center
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

"Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis & Butt-head and co-creator of King of the Hill, has a cool day job. But it wasn't always thus. From his memories of Dilbert-like employment in anonymous corporate America, Judge has written and directed OFFICE SPACE, a devious comedy about life in the cubicle. "Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) is a cog in the wheel of Initech, where various nerds and nebbishes punch the clock while their lives just tick away. It's a place where copiers shred your work in a never-ending state of "paper jam," where there isn't even a stapler you can call your own, and where the only thing to look forward to is Hawaiian-shirt Friday. "Staffers are downsized, humiliated, forced to account for their value to the company and, when all else fails, sent to the Gulag of the basement. One long-timer refuses to get the hint even though his paychecks have been cut off. Each day of officious bosses and meaningless paperwork is worse than the day before — leading Peter to conclude that each new day is the worst yet of his young life. "With a judiciously executed hip-hop soundtrack and the same anti-conformist spirit that informs Judge's TV cartoons, OFFICE SPACE can expect to ... (read more)

American Decorative Arts - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The collection of American decorative arts at the Metropolitan Museum extends from the late seventeenth to the early twentieth century and includes approximately twelve thousand examples of furniture, silver, glass, pewter, ceramics, and textiles. Present in the collection are objects made on American soil from the early colonial period, reflecting the settlers' keen desire to reproduce as faithfully as possible the material world they had left behind in England, Holland, and other homelands. Styles adhered closely to overseas developments, though regional schools of cabinetmaking did emerge rather swiftly in Boston, Newport, New York, Philadelphia, Williamsburg, and Charleston. Over the next two centuries, assimilating trends and techniques from across the Atlantic was the major preoccupation of American designers and craftsmen. The department's holdings reflect this ongoing dialogue, as well as the many truly original voices in American decorative arts. The Metropolitan's collection of American stained glass is perhaps the most comprehensive anywhere and features the innovative work of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Also noteworthy is the rest of the nineteenth- and early twentieth-cent... (read more)

American Paintings and Sculpture - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The collection of American paintings and sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum is one of the finest and most comprehensive in the world. More than one thousand paintings, six hundred sculptures, and 2,600 drawings - exceeding four thousand works in total by approximately nine hundred different artists- constitute an encyclopedic survey of fine art in America, from the late colonial period in the eighteenth century through the early twentieth century. The collection has been assembled over more than a century, beginning almost immediately after the Museum's founding. (American paintings, sculpture, and drawings by artists born after 1878 are in the Department of Nineteenth-Century, Modern, and Contemporary Art, and all photographs in the Department of Photographs.) Extraordinary in quality and exhaustive in scope, the department's collection of paintings has impressive concentrations of portraits, landscapes, and narrative scenes, as well as notable works by America's foremost painters, including John Singleton Copley, George Caleb Bingham, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, and John Sloan. The sculpture collection is equally distinguished and is especially strong in... (read more)

Asian Art - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

he collection of Asian art at the Metropolitan Museum is the largest and most comprehensive in the West. Each of the many civilizations of Asia is represented by outstanding works that provide—in both quality and breadth—an unrivaled experience of the artistic traditions of nearly half the world. The collection of more than 35,000 objects, which range in date from the second millennium B.C. to the early twentieth century, includes paintings, prints, calligraphy, sculptures, metalwork, ceramics, lacquers, works of decorative art, and textiles from East Asia, South Asia, the Himalayan kingdoms, and Southeast Asia. The department is renowned for its Chinese calligraphy and paintings—both monumental landscapes and more intimate glimpses of nature—as well as for its Japanese folding screens and woodblock prints and its assemblage of functional, ritual, and luxury objects in many media. Stone and metal sculptures from South and Southeast Asia and early paintings from Nepal and Tibet are other areas of strength within the collection.

Costume Institute Collection - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Costume Institute houses a collection of more than thirty thousand costumes and accessories spanning five continents and as many centuries. Arguably the preeminent institution of its kind in the world, the matrix of The Costume Institute collection was the Museum of Costume Art, an independent entity formed in 1937. Led by Neighborhood Playhouse founder Irene Lewisohn, the Museum of Costume Art benefited from gifts from Irene Lewisohn and her sister Alice Lewisohn Crowley, as well as from theatrical designers Aline Bernstein and Lee Simonson, among many others. In 1946, with the financial support of the fashion industry, the Museum of Costume Art merged with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Costume Institute became a department in its own right in 1959. The legendary fashion arbiter Diana Vreeland, who served as special consultant from 1972 until her death in 1989, created a spectacular suite of costume exhibitions, including "The World of Balenciaga" (1973), "Hollywood Design" (1974), "The Glory of Russian Costume" (1976), and "Vanity Fair" (1977), galvanizing audiences and setting the international standard for the opulent exhibition of costume, chiefly based on loan items...

Drawings and Prints - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum owns approximately fifteen thousand drawings and 1.5 million prints. The Department of Drawings and Prints focuses almost exclusively on works of graphic art produced after the Middle Ages in Western Europe and in North America. The collection of drawings is known particularly for its works by Italian and French artists of the fifteenth through the nineteenth century. One corollary of its impressive scope is that artists whose paintings are extremely rare—such as Michelangelo, Pontormo, and Altdorfer—are represented at the Metropolitan by splendid sheets that demonstrate their fluency with chalk, ink, and wash. The collection of northern Gothic and Renaissance prints is one of the finest in the world, and eighteenth-century Italian and nineteenth-century French prints are richly represented. Also in the department's care are more than twelve thousand illustrated books and a comprehensive collection of designs for Renaissance and Baroque architecture and the decorative arts.

Ancient Egyptian Art - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The collection of ancient Egyptian art at the Metropolitan Museum ranks among the finest outside Cairo. It consists of approximately 36,000 objects of artistic, historical, and cultural importance, dating from the Paleolithic to the Roman period (ca. 300,000 B.C.–4th century A.D.). More than half of the collection is derived from the Museum's thirty-five years of archaeological work in Egypt, initiated in 1906 in response to increasing public interest in the culture of ancient Egypt. Today, virtually the entire collection is on display in thirty-two major galleries and eight study galleries, with objects arranged chronologically. Overall, the holdings reflect the aesthetic values, history, religious beliefs, and daily life of the ancient Egyptians over the entire course of their great civilization. The Department of Egyptian Art is particularly well known for the Old Kingdom mastaba (offering chapel) of Perneb (ca. 2450 B.C.); a set of Middle Kingdom wooden models from the tomb of Meketre at Thebes (ca. 1990 B.C.); jewelry of Princess Sit-hathor-yunet of Dynasty 12 (ca. 1897–1797 B.C.); royal portrait sculpture of Dynasty 12 (ca. 1991–1783 B.C.); and statuary of the female pharaoh...

European Paintings - Old Master and Nineteenth-Century - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Old Master and nineteenth-century European paintings—one of the greatest such collections in existence—numbers approximately 2,200 works, dozens of which are instantly recognizable worldwide. The French, Italian, and Dutch schools are most strongly represented, with fine works also by British, Netherlandish, German, Spanish, and Flemish masters. The department's holdings—which consist not only of paintings on canvas and wood but also of frescoes, oil sketches, and finished pastels on paper, as well as a small number of Greek and Russian icons—range in date from the twelfth through the nineteenth century. Among its many masterpieces are exceptional assemblages of the work of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo; of the French Impressionists (the Museum owns thirty-seven Monets and twenty-one oil paintings by Cézanne); and of Vermeer, whose five canvases at the Metropolitan surpass the number at any other museum in the world.

European Sculpture and Decorative Arts - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The 50,000 objects in the Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts constitute a comprehensive and important historical collection, one of the Metropolitan Museum's largest, reflecting the development of a number of art forms in the major Western European countries from the early fifteenth through the early twentieth century. The department's holdings cover the following areas: sculpture in many sizes and media, woodwork and furniture, ceramics and glass, metalwork and jewelry, horological and mathematical instruments, and tapestries and textiles. Ceramics made in Asia for export to European markets and sculpture and decorative arts produced in Latin America during this period are also collected by the department. Distinguished works of Italian Renaissance and eighteenth-century French sculpture abound in a series of gallery spaces, ranging from the soaring and sunlit Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court to beautifully appointed period rooms. Among the department's best-known masterpieces in marble are Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Bacchanal and Houdon's portrait of his infant daughter, Sabine. From the nineteenth century there is an extensive collection of sculp... (read more)

Greek and Roman Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The collection of Greek and Roman art at the Metropolitan Museum—more than seventeen thousand works ranging in date from the Neolithic period to the time of the Roman emperor Constantine's conversion to Christianity in A.D. 312—includes the art of many cultures and is among the most comprehensive in North America. The areas represented are Greece and Italy, but not as delimited by modern political frontiers: much of Asia Minor on the periphery of Greece was settled by Greeks; Cyprus became increasingly Hellenized in the course of its long history; and Greek colonies were established around much of the Mediterranean basin and on the shores of the Black Sea. For Roman art, the geographical limits coincide with the political expansion of Rome. The department also exhibits the pre-Greek art of Greece and the pre-Roman art of Italy. Today, the objects in the department range from small, engraved gemstones to black-figure and red-figure painted vases to over-life-size statues and reflect virtually all of the materials in which ancient artists and craftsmen worked: marble, limestone, terracotta, bronze, gold, silver, and glass, as well as such rarer substances as ivory and bone, iron, le...

Islamic Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
Through September 01, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Islamic art, which ranges in date from the seventh to the nineteenth century, reflects the great diversity and range of Islamic culture and offers perhaps the most comprehensive permanent installation of Islamic art on view anywhere. Nearly 12,000 objects created in the cultural tradition of the world's youngest monotheistic religion (Islam, founded in A.D. 622, means "submission to God") have been assembled at the Metropolitan from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. While many of these objects were originally intended for decoration of a mosque or for use during worship, domestic and luxury objects in the collection reveal the mutual influence of artistic practice in the sacred and secular realms. In particular, the traditions of calligraphy, vegetal ornament (the arabesque), and geometric patterning are strongly expressed in most pieces on view. To dispel a common misconception: Islam's supposed prohibition against figural art is confined to the religious sphere. As just one example, many representations of people are to be found in the department's outstanding assemblage of miniature painti... (read more)

This is Like That - Theater For The New City (Community Theater)
September 02, 2019 - New York City

Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of “This is Like That” by Michael Sean Cirelli, a solo performance piece in the form of an eccentric slide lecture with a temperamental carousel projector and an apple. The play is a collaboration between Cirelli and director Emerie Snyder with performances 8/31 at 8PM, 9/1 at 5PM, 9/2 at 6:30pm, 9/3 at 9PM, and 9/4 at 6:30PM. After unexpectedly realizing that he’s meant to be giving a lecture to everyone around him, a befuddled language professor attempts to explain the beauty he finds in language—only he cannot find the words. A piece for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren’t. “This is Like That” is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.

European Art - The Robert Lehman Collection - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Robert Lehman Collection—one of the most extraordinary private art collections ever assembled in the United States—was presented to the Metropolitan Museum by the Robert Lehman Foundation in 1969, following Mr. Lehman's death. The collection of nearly three thousand works of art, which had been assembled by Mr. Lehman, a longtime Museum trustee, and by his father, Philip, is housed today in The Robert Lehman Wing. The galleries, which opened to the public in 1975, were designed to evoke the ambience of Lehman's own house on West 54th Street in New York City, with wall fabrics, draperies, furniture, and rugs that set the objects in an intimate, personal context. Thanks to Lehman's acute connoisseurship and adroit negotiation of the art market, the collection is extremely strong in several areas of European art. Its approximately three hundred paintings favor the Italian Renaissance, especially the Sienese school, and the early northern masters, but range as far afield as the Fauves and beyond. Its more than seven hundred Old Master drawings include a rich trove of eighteenth-century Venetian works as well as other important Italian, French, and northern examples. The remaining ...

Bill Charlap Trio - Village Vanguard
September 03, 2019 - New York

As a unit, this must be one of the best piano trios ever, and certainly as instantly recognisable as any of its great predecessors. Charlap’s touch on the keyboard is light, almost stealthy, even when playing full chords, but always firm, clear and beautifully articulated. With the spirited support of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (famously unrelated), the total effect is just perfect. As always, Charlap’s playing provides convincing proof that it is still possible to create fresh but pertinent treatments of well-known standard songs.

Held in the Wright restaurant, these informal discussions engage with current issues as they are filtered through the generative lens of art. Summer of Know is supported in part by Moleskine.

Medieval Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The period between ancient and modern times in Western civilization, known as the Middle Ages, extends from the fourth to the early sixteenth century—that is, roughly from the Fall of Rome to the beginning of the Renaissance in Northern Europe. The Metropolitan Museum's collection of medieval art, one of the richest in the world, encompasses the art of this long and complex period in all of its many phases, from its pre-Christian antecedents in Western Europe through the early Christian, Byzantine, Romanesque, and Gothic periods. Though administered by a single curatorial department, the Museum's medieval holdings are exhibited in two different locations: in several galleries on the first floor of the Main Building on Fifth Avenue, and at The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan devoted to the art of medieval Europe in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park. The medieval objects in the Main Building, of which there are more than six thousand, display a somewhat broader geographical and temporal range—pre-medieval European antiquities (that are not Greek or Roman) from as early as the Bronze Age fall under the department's purview and are exhibited here, as are works of Byzantine ...

Modern Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Department of Modern Art surveys painting, sculpture, drawings and watercolors, decorative arts, design, and architectural representations from about 1900 to the present day in more than 10,000 works, primarily by European and American artists. The Metropolitan Museum has been concerned with the art of its own time, as well as that of the past, since its founding in 1870. Many of the objects acquired as contemporary in the early decades of the Museum's existence are now in the collections of other departments—The American Wing, for instance, or the Department of European Paintings. Those works that entered the collection before the turn of the century and still qualify as "modern" join many, many more acquired over the past hundred years. The strengths of the modern-art collection are housed in the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing. Of particular note are the paintings by members of the School of Paris, such as Braque, Picasso, and Modigliani; paintings and drawings by the circle of early American modernists around Alfred Stieglitz; over ninety works by Paul Klee; large-scale paintings by the postwar Abstract Expressionists; bronzes by Elie Nadelman and Gaston Lachaise; as well as pai...

Musical Instruments - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

Only one curatorial department at the Metropolitan Museum exhibits objects originally meant to appeal as much to the ear as to the eye. It is the Department of Musical Instruments, which holds approximately five thousand examples from six continents and the Pacific Islands, dating from about 300 B.C. to the present. The collection, which is unsurpassed in its comprehensive scope, illustrates the development of musical instruments from all cultures and eras. The instruments, selected for their technical and social importance as well as for their tonal and visual beauty, may be approached in a number of ways: as art objects, as ethnographic record, and as documents of the history of music and performance. Although the greatest strength of the department lies in its encyclopedic nature, categories that are particularly well represented include European and American keyboards, wind instruments from the late seventeenth through the nineteenth century, and instruments of all sorts from non-Western societies. Fifty highlights from the department are presented online, organized by instrument type and, within types, alphabetically by the name of the country of origin. The basic instrument ... (read more)

History of Photography - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's Department of Photographs surveys the history of photography from its invention in the 1830s to the present. The collection of more than 20,000 works is largely European and American, with some representation of other parts of the world, particularly Japan. The Metropolitan's department includes several important collections: The Gilman Paper Company Collection, comprising exceptionally rich holdings in early French, British, and American photography, as well as masterpieces from the turn-of-the-century and modernist periods; The Rubel Collection, with superb examples of British photography from the first three decades of the medium's history; The Alfred Stieglitz Collection, with masterpieces of the Photo-Secession movement (1902–17) and related Pictorialist photography; The Ford Motor Company Collection of American and European photography between the World Wars; and the personal archive of the American photographer Walker Evans (1903–1975). All told, the Museum's collection reveals the medium's breadth of form and function—from documentation to refined aestheticism and from intimate explorations of identity to majestic expressions of the sublime.

Textile Arts - Antonio Ratti Textile Center - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum of Art possesses one of the finest collections of textiles in the world. Encyclopedic in scope, it includes examples from all of the world's civilizations and from almost every period in history. Among the 35,000 pieces (a number which does not reflect the holdings of The Costume Institute) are archaeological fragments, tapestries, carpets, quilts, ecclesiastical vestments, silks, embroideries, laces, velvets, and more, dating from 3000 B.C. to the present. Highlights include late Antique domestic textiles made in Egypt by Christians and pagans alike during the fourth to seventh centuries; silk tapestries and embroideries of the Yuan dynasty, a peak of refinement and complexity in Chinese textiles; a five-medallion "compartment carpet" crafted in Persia during the Safavid period in the early sixteenth century; and the opulent and rare seventeenth-century French embroidered wall panels in the Museum's Louis XIV bedchamber. Previously dispersed among the various curatorial departments according to the cultures that produced them, most of the Museum's textile holdings are now gathered in the Antonio Ratti Textile Center—one of the largest, most technically adv...

This is Like That - Theater For The New City (Community Theater)
September 03, 2019 - New York City

Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of “This is Like That” by Michael Sean Cirelli, a solo performance piece in the form of an eccentric slide lecture with a temperamental carousel projector and an apple. The play is a collaboration between Cirelli and director Emerie Snyder with performances 8/31 at 8PM, 9/1 at 5PM, 9/2 at 6:30pm, 9/3 at 9PM, and 9/4 at 6:30PM. After unexpectedly realizing that he’s meant to be giving a lecture to everyone around him, a befuddled language professor attempts to explain the beauty he finds in language—only he cannot find the words. A piece for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren’t. “This is Like That” is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.

American Paintings and Sculpture - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The collection of American paintings and sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum is one of the finest and most comprehensive in the world. More than one thousand paintings, six hundred sculptures, and 2,600 drawings - exceeding four thousand works in total by approximately nine hundred different artists- constitute an encyclopedic survey of fine art in America, from the late colonial period in the eighteenth century through the early twentieth century. The collection has been assembled over more than a century, beginning almost immediately after the Museum's founding. (American paintings, sculpture, and drawings by artists born after 1878 are in the Department of Nineteenth-Century, Modern, and Contemporary Art, and all photographs in the Department of Photographs.) Extraordinary in quality and exhaustive in scope, the department's collection of paintings has impressive concentrations of portraits, landscapes, and narrative scenes, as well as notable works by America's foremost painters, including John Singleton Copley, George Caleb Bingham, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, and John Sloan. The sculpture collection is equally distinguished and is especially strong in... (read more)

Asian Art - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

he collection of Asian art at the Metropolitan Museum is the largest and most comprehensive in the West. Each of the many civilizations of Asia is represented by outstanding works that provide—in both quality and breadth—an unrivaled experience of the artistic traditions of nearly half the world. The collection of more than 35,000 objects, which range in date from the second millennium B.C. to the early twentieth century, includes paintings, prints, calligraphy, sculptures, metalwork, ceramics, lacquers, works of decorative art, and textiles from East Asia, South Asia, the Himalayan kingdoms, and Southeast Asia. The department is renowned for its Chinese calligraphy and paintings—both monumental landscapes and more intimate glimpses of nature—as well as for its Japanese folding screens and woodblock prints and its assemblage of functional, ritual, and luxury objects in many media. Stone and metal sculptures from South and Southeast Asia and early paintings from Nepal and Tibet are other areas of strength within the collection.

Costume Institute Collection - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Costume Institute houses a collection of more than thirty thousand costumes and accessories spanning five continents and as many centuries. Arguably the preeminent institution of its kind in the world, the matrix of The Costume Institute collection was the Museum of Costume Art, an independent entity formed in 1937. Led by Neighborhood Playhouse founder Irene Lewisohn, the Museum of Costume Art benefited from gifts from Irene Lewisohn and her sister Alice Lewisohn Crowley, as well as from theatrical designers Aline Bernstein and Lee Simonson, among many others. In 1946, with the financial support of the fashion industry, the Museum of Costume Art merged with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Costume Institute became a department in its own right in 1959. The legendary fashion arbiter Diana Vreeland, who served as special consultant from 1972 until her death in 1989, created a spectacular suite of costume exhibitions, including "The World of Balenciaga" (1973), "Hollywood Design" (1974), "The Glory of Russian Costume" (1976), and "Vanity Fair" (1977), galvanizing audiences and setting the international standard for the opulent exhibition of costume, chiefly based on loan items...

Drawings and Prints - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum owns approximately fifteen thousand drawings and 1.5 million prints. The Department of Drawings and Prints focuses almost exclusively on works of graphic art produced after the Middle Ages in Western Europe and in North America. The collection of drawings is known particularly for its works by Italian and French artists of the fifteenth through the nineteenth century. One corollary of its impressive scope is that artists whose paintings are extremely rare—such as Michelangelo, Pontormo, and Altdorfer—are represented at the Metropolitan by splendid sheets that demonstrate their fluency with chalk, ink, and wash. The collection of northern Gothic and Renaissance prints is one of the finest in the world, and eighteenth-century Italian and nineteenth-century French prints are richly represented. Also in the department's care are more than twelve thousand illustrated books and a comprehensive collection of designs for Renaissance and Baroque architecture and the decorative arts.

Bill Charlap Trio - Village Vanguard
September 03, 2019 - New York

As a unit, this must be one of the best piano trios ever, and certainly as instantly recognisable as any of its great predecessors. Charlap’s touch on the keyboard is light, almost stealthy, even when playing full chords, but always firm, clear and beautifully articulated. With the spirited support of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (famously unrelated), the total effect is just perfect. As always, Charlap’s playing provides convincing proof that it is still possible to create fresh but pertinent treatments of well-known standard songs.

Ancient Egyptian Art - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The collection of ancient Egyptian art at the Metropolitan Museum ranks among the finest outside Cairo. It consists of approximately 36,000 objects of artistic, historical, and cultural importance, dating from the Paleolithic to the Roman period (ca. 300,000 B.C.–4th century A.D.). More than half of the collection is derived from the Museum's thirty-five years of archaeological work in Egypt, initiated in 1906 in response to increasing public interest in the culture of ancient Egypt. Today, virtually the entire collection is on display in thirty-two major galleries and eight study galleries, with objects arranged chronologically. Overall, the holdings reflect the aesthetic values, history, religious beliefs, and daily life of the ancient Egyptians over the entire course of their great civilization. The Department of Egyptian Art is particularly well known for the Old Kingdom mastaba (offering chapel) of Perneb (ca. 2450 B.C.); a set of Middle Kingdom wooden models from the tomb of Meketre at Thebes (ca. 1990 B.C.); jewelry of Princess Sit-hathor-yunet of Dynasty 12 (ca. 1897–1797 B.C.); royal portrait sculpture of Dynasty 12 (ca. 1991–1783 B.C.); and statuary of the female pharaoh...

European Paintings - Old Master and Nineteenth-Century - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Old Master and nineteenth-century European paintings—one of the greatest such collections in existence—numbers approximately 2,200 works, dozens of which are instantly recognizable worldwide. The French, Italian, and Dutch schools are most strongly represented, with fine works also by British, Netherlandish, German, Spanish, and Flemish masters. The department's holdings—which consist not only of paintings on canvas and wood but also of frescoes, oil sketches, and finished pastels on paper, as well as a small number of Greek and Russian icons—range in date from the twelfth through the nineteenth century. Among its many masterpieces are exceptional assemblages of the work of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo; of the French Impressionists (the Museum owns thirty-seven Monets and twenty-one oil paintings by Cézanne); and of Vermeer, whose five canvases at the Metropolitan surpass the number at any other museum in the world.

European Sculpture and Decorative Arts - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The 50,000 objects in the Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts constitute a comprehensive and important historical collection, one of the Metropolitan Museum's largest, reflecting the development of a number of art forms in the major Western European countries from the early fifteenth through the early twentieth century. The department's holdings cover the following areas: sculpture in many sizes and media, woodwork and furniture, ceramics and glass, metalwork and jewelry, horological and mathematical instruments, and tapestries and textiles. Ceramics made in Asia for export to European markets and sculpture and decorative arts produced in Latin America during this period are also collected by the department. Distinguished works of Italian Renaissance and eighteenth-century French sculpture abound in a series of gallery spaces, ranging from the soaring and sunlit Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court to beautifully appointed period rooms. Among the department's best-known masterpieces in marble are Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Bacchanal and Houdon's portrait of his infant daughter, Sabine. From the nineteenth century there is an extensive collection of sculp... (read more)

Greek and Roman Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The collection of Greek and Roman art at the Metropolitan Museum—more than seventeen thousand works ranging in date from the Neolithic period to the time of the Roman emperor Constantine's conversion to Christianity in A.D. 312—includes the art of many cultures and is among the most comprehensive in North America. The areas represented are Greece and Italy, but not as delimited by modern political frontiers: much of Asia Minor on the periphery of Greece was settled by Greeks; Cyprus became increasingly Hellenized in the course of its long history; and Greek colonies were established around much of the Mediterranean basin and on the shores of the Black Sea. For Roman art, the geographical limits coincide with the political expansion of Rome. The department also exhibits the pre-Greek art of Greece and the pre-Roman art of Italy. Today, the objects in the department range from small, engraved gemstones to black-figure and red-figure painted vases to over-life-size statues and reflect virtually all of the materials in which ancient artists and craftsmen worked: marble, limestone, terracotta, bronze, gold, silver, and glass, as well as such rarer substances as ivory and bone, iron, le...

Islamic Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 03, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Islamic art, which ranges in date from the seventh to the nineteenth century, reflects the great diversity and range of Islamic culture and offers perhaps the most comprehensive permanent installation of Islamic art on view anywhere. Nearly 12,000 objects created in the cultural tradition of the world's youngest monotheistic religion (Islam, founded in A.D. 622, means "submission to God") have been assembled at the Metropolitan from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. While many of these objects were originally intended for decoration of a mosque or for use during worship, domestic and luxury objects in the collection reveal the mutual influence of artistic practice in the sacred and secular realms. In particular, the traditions of calligraphy, vegetal ornament (the arabesque), and geometric patterning are strongly expressed in most pieces on view. To dispel a common misconception: Islam's supposed prohibition against figural art is confined to the religious sphere. As just one example, many representations of people are to be found in the department's outstanding assemblage of miniature painti... (read more)

Fossil Halls - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

One of the premier attractions in New York City is the Museum's series of fossil halls, including its two famed dinosaur halls. The Museum is home to the world's largest collection of vertebrate fossils, totaling nearly one million specimens. More than 600 of these specimens, nearly 85 percent of which are real fossils as opposed to casts, are on view. Completely renovated between 1994 and 1996, the fossil halls now stand as a continuous loop on the fourth floor, telling the story of vertebrate evolution. Unlike most fossil exhibits, which are arranged in chronological order, the Museum's fossil halls display the specimens according to evolutionary relationships, dramatically illustrating the complex branches of the tree of life, in which animals are grouped according to their shared physical characteristics. Such relationships are determined through a method of scientific analysis called cladistics, which the Museum helped pioneer. The halls' renovation also allowed for new scientific interpretations of favorite displays, as well as the restoration of the fourth floor to its original architectural grandeur.

Hall of Biodiversity - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Hall of Biodiversity is a groundbreaking exhibition devoted to what many scientists believe is the most pressing environmental issue of our time: the need to protect and preserve our planet's biodiversity, the variety and interdependence of Earth's life forms. The 11,000-square-foot hall, which opened in 1998, represents an important step in the Museum's efforts to expand public understanding of Earth's diverse and often endangered life forms, while painting a vivid and inspiring portrait of the breathtaking beauty and abundance of life on Earth. Dominating the hall is a spectacular diorama of the Dzanga-Sangha rain forest, which represents one of the most biodiversity-rich ecosystems on Earth. The diorama includes more than 160 species of flora and fauna and more than 500,000 leaves, each painstakingly made by hand. Representing a diorama "for the new millennium," the rain forest measures 90 feet long, 26 feet wide, and 18 feet high and invites visitors behind the glass into an immersive environment where high-resolution imagery, video, sound, and smell work together to create a habitat. The rain forest is depicted in three different states: pristine, altered by natural force... (read more)

Hall of Meteorites - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites features a circular layout centered around a massive 34-ton iron meteorite fragment called Ahnighito. For thousands of years, people have been fascinated by streaks of light flashing across the night sky. These "shooting stars" are actually tiny grains of dust from space that burn up in Earth's atmosphere before reaching the ground. But hundreds of times a year, a rock called a meteorite survives the fiery trip from space and lands on Earth. A small fraction of these "fallen stars"—really fallen rocks—are recovered each year from around the globe. The vast majority of meteorites are pieces of asteroids, the small rocky bodies that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. And while meteorites are not from stars, they contain vital clues that help scientists understand how stars like our Sun formed and how planets, including Earth, took shape more than four billion years ago.

Hall of Ocean Life - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Milstein Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History is one of New York's best-known grand spaces and home to a celebrated 94-foot-long model of a blue whale. The Hall's classic lines and visually arresting elegance have been restored and reinvigorated with cutting-edge exhibition technology and the latest scientific research on the mysteries of our vast water planet, of which only 5 percent of the deep ocean has been explored. The 29,000-square-foot Hall has been transformed into a fully immersive marine environment with high-definition video projections, interactive computer stations, hands-on models, 14 renovated classic dioramas, and eight new ocean ecosystem displays that transport visitors from the rainbow-hued profusion of life in the Indo-Pacific coral reefs to the flickering bioluminescence of fishes in the eerie darkness of the deep sea. The new Milstein Hall of Ocean Life highlights as never before the drama of the undersea world and its diverse and complex web of vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant life. The monumental model of a blue whale, one of the most beloved icons in New York City, resculpted and repainted to more accurately reflect the look... (read more)

Hall of Planet Earth - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth displays one of the most outstanding collections of geological specimens ever displayed in an exhibition hall. Between 1996 and 1998, Museum teams embarked on dozens of reconnaissance trips and 28 acquisition expeditions to distant locations, from Indonesian volcanoes to the Sahara Desert in West Africa. Each trip included working with local experts to uncover the most geologically significant rocks. Every specimen and model was chosen to illustrate an important aspect of Earth's dynamic story. To tell the most significant stories of Earth, from its early evolution to the earthquakes and storms we encounter today, the 8,830-square-foot Hall is organized into exhibition zones based on five major questions. 1. How Has The Earth Evolved? 2. Why Are There Ocean Basins, Continents, And Mountains? 3. How Do We Read The Rocks? 4. What Causes Climate And Climate Change? 5. Why Is Earth Habitable? Four years in the making, HoPE features 168 rock specimens and 11 full-scale models of classic outcroppings from 25 countries — including Australia, Indonesia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mauritania, Scotland, Switzerland, and Venezuela — and five ocean floor regio...

Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The earliest-known dinosaurs appeared about 228 million years ago; their fossils have been found on every continent. They dominated the land until about 65 million years ago, when an episode of extinction eliminated the non-avian dinosaurs (but not the birds) as well as many other animals and plants, both on the land and in the seas. Possible causes for these extinctions include the impact of an extraterrestrial object or a major, global peak in volcanic activity. Tyrannosaurus Rex The American Museum of Natural History is home to the single largest collection of dinosaur fossils in the world, with more than 100 specimens featured in its halls. The Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs examines the branches of dinosaurs that possess the trait of a grasping hand, with fingers that differ in size and shape. This hall features some of the Museum's most beloved and terrifying specimens, including Tyrannosaurus rex and Apatosaurus. Both of the displays have been revised to represent new scientific thinking: T-rex, once presented upright, is now positioned in a low, stalking pose with its tail in the air, while Apatosaurus—previously known as Brontosaurus—has a new skull, additional neck bones...

Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs examines the branches of dinosaurs that possess a backward pointing pubis bone. Additional features found within the Ornithischians include inset tooth rows forming cheeks and the uneven covering of enamel on the teeth. It is believed that both these traits allowed for increased efficiency in holding and chewing food. This hall includes such favorites as Stegosaurus, a 140-million-year-old dinosaur with distinctive rows of plates down the center of its back and large spikes in the end of its tail (along with a cast of the only juvenile Stegosaurus ever found) and the 65-million-year-old horned and shield-headed dinosaur Triceratops. This specimen has a partly healed injury on its three-horned skull, possibly caused by another Triceratops. On view nearby are the "mummy" specimens of Edmontosaurus and Corythosaurus, whose fossils have preserved large areas of skin impressions, allowing us a rare glimpse of what these creatures might have looked like alive.

Hall of Advanced Mammals - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

aul and Irma Milstein Hall of Advanced Mammals features advanced mammals with such traits as hoofs and eye sockets near the snout, in addition to those traits featured in the Hall of Primitive Mammals. A wide range of animals is represented along these evolutionary branches, including cats, seals, bears, primates, horses, whales, and elephants, along with their extinct relatives. Up until about 10,000 years ago, mammoths, mastodons, saber-toothed cats, camels, and giant ground sloths roamed across North America. Then, an episode of extinction wiped all those animals out. The cause of this wave of extinction is unclear, but possible explanations include dramatic climate changes at the end of the last ice age, hunting by humans, and infectious disease.

Hall of Vertebrate Origins - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Hall of Vertebrate Origins tells the story of the burgeoning of vertebrates through the oceans and onto land, an evolutionary sequence stretching back more than 500 million years. The development of some of the most basic, yet revolutionary, physical characteristics—the backbone, jaws, limbs, and the ability to reproduce without returning to the water—was key to the evolution of life on Earth and is examined in the Hall of Vertebrate Origins. The Hall traces the evolution of such stunningly varied creatures as the first vertebrates to walk on land, the first vertebrates to live entirely on land, and the first flying vertebrates. Highlights include Buettneria, one of the earliest four-limbed animals; the massive armored early fish Dunkleosteus; the gigantic aquatic turtle known as Stupendemys; and Pteranodon, a flying reptile, or pterosaur, with a wingspan of 23 feet.

Iridescent Opals - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

Renowned for their colorful iridescence, opals' unique internal structure creates their colors by scattering light. Opal gemstones used in jewelry are relatively soft and fragile; they need protection from scratching, bumping, and abrupt temperature changes. Opal most commonly forms by the action of warm water on volcanic glass. It can also form at low temperatures, when water rich with dissolved silica mixes with sediment or enters rocks. Opal deposits are found around the globe, but about 85 percent of the world's gem opals are mined in Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. These opals come from a range of locations—Australia, Brazil, Honduras, Ethiopia, and the United States—and illustrate the gem's diversity.

Hall of Human Origins - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The newly opened Anne and Bernard Spitzer Hall of Human Origins presents the remarkable history of human evolution from our earliest ancestors millions of years ago to modern Homo sapiens. The innovative Spitzer Hall combines the most up-to-date discoveries in the fossil record with the latest in genomic science to explore the most profound mysteries of humankind: who we are, where we came from, and what is in store for the future of our species.

Hall of the Universe - Rose Center for Earth and Space (Hayden Planetarium)
Through September 03, 2019 - New York,

The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Hall of the Universe presents the discoveries and explorations of modern astrophysics. This 7,000-square-foot hall is divided into four zones featuring exhibit islands rich with astronomical imagery, rotating video displays, computer interactives, and more. The Universe Zone probes the limits of our powers of observation, while exploring the ways in which our universe is expanding. The Galaxies Zone celebrates the exquisite beauty and diversity of galaxies, while providing information on their formation and evolution. The Stars Zone links supernovae to the elements created by them, the chemical building blocks of our own human bodies, reinforcing the notion that we are made of "star stuff." The Planets Zone illustrates the formation and evolution of planets, with an examination of major collisions that have occurred on Earth, as well as possible future impacts.

Cosmic Pathway - Rose Center for Earth and Space No Planetarium)
Through September 03, 2019 - New York,

Following the explosive Big Bang experience, visitors exit onto the Harriet and Robert Heilbrunn Cosmic Pathway, a dramatic, spiraling ramp that ushers them through 13 billion years of cosmic evolution. At the start of the walkway, visitors can measure the length of their stride and determine how many millions of years pass with each step. Thirteen markers along the way denote the passage of each billion years and, at eight landings, computer interactives help visitors understand the nature and size of the universe at that point in time. Artifacts are also on display, including evidence of the earliest bacterial life on Earth and the fossilized tooth of a giant carnivorous dinosaur. At the end of the 360-foot circular pathway, the thickness of a human hair illustrates the relative duration of human history, from cave paintings to the present day. The Heilbrunn Cosmic Pathway was specially designed to allow for adjustments and updates to the exhibitry, as research in astrophysics reveals new information about the age and nature of the universe.

Hayden Planetarium - Rose Center for Earth and Space No Planetarium)
Through September 03, 2019 - New York,

Dominating the Rose Center is the magnificent Hayden Sphere, which features the world's largest virtual reality simulator. Weighing four million pounds and measuring 87 feet in diameter, the Hayden Sphere houses the Space Theater in its upper half and the Big Bang Theater in its lower hemisphere. With the custom-made Zeiss Mark IX Star Projector and a Digital Dome Projection System, the 429-seat Space Theater displays a hyperrealistic view of the planets, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies in an exhilarating journey from Earth to the edge of the observable universe. To create this virtual universe, a team of Museum scientists and visualization experts, along with colleagues from such organizations as NASA, worked in a remarkable collaboration of science, artistry, and advanced computing to "stitch together" images of our universe, based on astronomical observations and computer models. The Digital Galaxy Project has created the most accurate and complete picture of our Milky Way Galaxy, a portrait that provides the foundation for the Hayden Planetarium Space Show. In the Big Bang Theater, visual and audio effects dramatically re-create how, according to scientists, the universe... (read more)

Hall of African Peoples - American Museum of Natural History
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

Africa, a continent of nearly 12 million square miles and more than 700 million inhabitants, boasts a rich array of cultures. The Hall of African Peoples explores this great diversity, highlighting the traditional lifestyles and customs of people living in Africa's grasslands, deserts, forests, and river regions. The religious, political, economic, and domestic aspects of life are highlighted through artifacts and dioramas. On display are masks, musical instruments, farming tools, religious idols, ceremonial costumes, and more. Dioramas depict a variety of scenes, from the Berbers of the desert in North Africa to the Mbuti pygmies in the Congo. Also featured are the Yoruba, Pokot, and Bira peoples, among others.

Ancient Near Eastern Art - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 03, 2019 - New York

The Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art covers both a lengthy chronological span and a vast geographical area. The collection of more than seven thousand works of art ranges in date from 8000 B.C. (the Neolithic period) to the Arab conquest and rise of Islam beginning in A.D. 651. The works come from ancient Mesopotamia, Iran, Syria, Anatolia, and other lands in the region that extends from the Black and Caspian Seas in the north to the southwestern Arabian peninsula, and from western Turkey on the Mediterranean Sea to the Indus River Valley in modern-day Pakistan and India. Societies throughout the ancient Near East maintained commercial and cultural contacts across great distances, although the routes, trade goods, and artistic styles and motifs that were exchanged varied in different periods. Strengths of the department's collection, in formation for more than a century, include Sumerian sculptures; Anatolian ivories; Iranian bronzes; metalwork from Bronze Age Bactria in modern-day Afghanistan and Turkmenistan; and magnificent silver and gold vessels from the Achaemenid, Parthian, and Sasanian eras in Iran. These objects are joined by an extraordinary group of Assyrian stone... (read more)

Islamic Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Islamic art, which ranges in date from the seventh to the nineteenth century, reflects the great diversity and range of Islamic culture and offers perhaps the most comprehensive permanent installation of Islamic art on view anywhere. Nearly 12,000 objects created in the cultural tradition of the world's youngest monotheistic religion (Islam, founded in A.D. 622, means "submission to God") have been assembled at the Metropolitan from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. While many of these objects were originally intended for decoration of a mosque or for use during worship, domestic and luxury objects in the collection reveal the mutual influence of artistic practice in the sacred and secular realms. In particular, the traditions of calligraphy, vegetal ornament (the arabesque), and geometric patterning are strongly expressed in most pieces on view. To dispel a common misconception: Islam's supposed prohibition against figural art is confined to the religious sphere. As just one example, many representations of people are to be found in the department's outstanding assemblage of miniature painti... (read more)

Bill Charlap Trio - Village Vanguard
September 04, 2019 - New York

As a unit, this must be one of the best piano trios ever, and certainly as instantly recognisable as any of its great predecessors. Charlap’s touch on the keyboard is light, almost stealthy, even when playing full chords, but always firm, clear and beautifully articulated. With the spirited support of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (famously unrelated), the total effect is just perfect. As always, Charlap’s playing provides convincing proof that it is still possible to create fresh but pertinent treatments of well-known standard songs.

European Art - The Robert Lehman Collection - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Robert Lehman Collection—one of the most extraordinary private art collections ever assembled in the United States—was presented to the Metropolitan Museum by the Robert Lehman Foundation in 1969, following Mr. Lehman's death. The collection of nearly three thousand works of art, which had been assembled by Mr. Lehman, a longtime Museum trustee, and by his father, Philip, is housed today in The Robert Lehman Wing. The galleries, which opened to the public in 1975, were designed to evoke the ambience of Lehman's own house on West 54th Street in New York City, with wall fabrics, draperies, furniture, and rugs that set the objects in an intimate, personal context. Thanks to Lehman's acute connoisseurship and adroit negotiation of the art market, the collection is extremely strong in several areas of European art. Its approximately three hundred paintings favor the Italian Renaissance, especially the Sienese school, and the early northern masters, but range as far afield as the Fauves and beyond. Its more than seven hundred Old Master drawings include a rich trove of eighteenth-century Venetian works as well as other important Italian, French, and northern examples. The remaining ...

Medieval Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The period between ancient and modern times in Western civilization, known as the Middle Ages, extends from the fourth to the early sixteenth century—that is, roughly from the Fall of Rome to the beginning of the Renaissance in Northern Europe. The Metropolitan Museum's collection of medieval art, one of the richest in the world, encompasses the art of this long and complex period in all of its many phases, from its pre-Christian antecedents in Western Europe through the early Christian, Byzantine, Romanesque, and Gothic periods. Though administered by a single curatorial department, the Museum's medieval holdings are exhibited in two different locations: in several galleries on the first floor of the Main Building on Fifth Avenue, and at The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan devoted to the art of medieval Europe in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park. The medieval objects in the Main Building, of which there are more than six thousand, display a somewhat broader geographical and temporal range—pre-medieval European antiquities (that are not Greek or Roman) from as early as the Bronze Age fall under the department's purview and are exhibited here, as are works of Byzantine ...

Modern Art - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Department of Modern Art surveys painting, sculpture, drawings and watercolors, decorative arts, design, and architectural representations from about 1900 to the present day in more than 10,000 works, primarily by European and American artists. The Metropolitan Museum has been concerned with the art of its own time, as well as that of the past, since its founding in 1870. Many of the objects acquired as contemporary in the early decades of the Museum's existence are now in the collections of other departments—The American Wing, for instance, or the Department of European Paintings. Those works that entered the collection before the turn of the century and still qualify as "modern" join many, many more acquired over the past hundred years. The strengths of the modern-art collection are housed in the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing. Of particular note are the paintings by members of the School of Paris, such as Braque, Picasso, and Modigliani; paintings and drawings by the circle of early American modernists around Alfred Stieglitz; over ninety works by Paul Klee; large-scale paintings by the postwar Abstract Expressionists; bronzes by Elie Nadelman and Gaston Lachaise; as well as pai...

Musical Instruments - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

Only one curatorial department at the Metropolitan Museum exhibits objects originally meant to appeal as much to the ear as to the eye. It is the Department of Musical Instruments, which holds approximately five thousand examples from six continents and the Pacific Islands, dating from about 300 B.C. to the present. The collection, which is unsurpassed in its comprehensive scope, illustrates the development of musical instruments from all cultures and eras. The instruments, selected for their technical and social importance as well as for their tonal and visual beauty, may be approached in a number of ways: as art objects, as ethnographic record, and as documents of the history of music and performance. Although the greatest strength of the department lies in its encyclopedic nature, categories that are particularly well represented include European and American keyboards, wind instruments from the late seventeenth through the nineteenth century, and instruments of all sorts from non-Western societies. Fifty highlights from the department are presented online, organized by instrument type and, within types, alphabetically by the name of the country of origin. The basic instrument ... (read more)

History of Photography - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's Department of Photographs surveys the history of photography from its invention in the 1830s to the present. The collection of more than 20,000 works is largely European and American, with some representation of other parts of the world, particularly Japan. The Metropolitan's department includes several important collections: The Gilman Paper Company Collection, comprising exceptionally rich holdings in early French, British, and American photography, as well as masterpieces from the turn-of-the-century and modernist periods; The Rubel Collection, with superb examples of British photography from the first three decades of the medium's history; The Alfred Stieglitz Collection, with masterpieces of the Photo-Secession movement (1902–17) and related Pictorialist photography; The Ford Motor Company Collection of American and European photography between the World Wars; and the personal archive of the American photographer Walker Evans (1903–1975). All told, the Museum's collection reveals the medium's breadth of form and function—from documentation to refined aestheticism and from intimate explorations of identity to majestic expressions of the sublime.

This is Like That - Theater For The New City (Community Theater)
September 04, 2019 - New York City

Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival will present the world premiere of “This is Like That” by Michael Sean Cirelli, a solo performance piece in the form of an eccentric slide lecture with a temperamental carousel projector and an apple. The play is a collaboration between Cirelli and director Emerie Snyder with performances 8/31 at 8PM, 9/1 at 5PM, 9/2 at 6:30pm, 9/3 at 9PM, and 9/4 at 6:30PM. After unexpectedly realizing that he’s meant to be giving a lecture to everyone around him, a befuddled language professor attempts to explain the beauty he finds in language—only he cannot find the words. A piece for anyone who has ever felt misunderstood, or felt they might feel understood but weren’t. “This is Like That” is a one-person play that grapples with questions about language, identity, religion, and the stories we tell others and ourselves.

American Paintings and Sculpture - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The collection of American paintings and sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum is one of the finest and most comprehensive in the world. More than one thousand paintings, six hundred sculptures, and 2,600 drawings - exceeding four thousand works in total by approximately nine hundred different artists- constitute an encyclopedic survey of fine art in America, from the late colonial period in the eighteenth century through the early twentieth century. The collection has been assembled over more than a century, beginning almost immediately after the Museum's founding. (American paintings, sculpture, and drawings by artists born after 1878 are in the Department of Nineteenth-Century, Modern, and Contemporary Art, and all photographs in the Department of Photographs.) Extraordinary in quality and exhaustive in scope, the department's collection of paintings has impressive concentrations of portraits, landscapes, and narrative scenes, as well as notable works by America's foremost painters, including John Singleton Copley, George Caleb Bingham, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, and John Sloan. The sculpture collection is equally distinguished and is especially strong in... (read more)

Math Encounters: 'Irrational Investigation: Why Pi Sometimes Equals 4' with Cornelia A. Van Cott - National Museum of Mathematics
September 04, 2019 - New York

Most of your mathematical life, you've known that pi is an irrational number somewhere between 3.1 and 3.2. But if we exchange the usual notion of distance in two-dimensional space for other notions, pi can be any of an infinite number of different values. What are these values? You'll be surprised at the twists and turns we encounter when we leave the safety of traditional distance measures for these uncharted territories. Special introduction by Paul Zeitz, University of San Francisco Professor of Mathematics and Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of Proof School. Learn more and register at mathencounters.org.

Asian Art - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

he collection of Asian art at the Metropolitan Museum is the largest and most comprehensive in the West. Each of the many civilizations of Asia is represented by outstanding works that provide—in both quality and breadth—an unrivaled experience of the artistic traditions of nearly half the world. The collection of more than 35,000 objects, which range in date from the second millennium B.C. to the early twentieth century, includes paintings, prints, calligraphy, sculptures, metalwork, ceramics, lacquers, works of decorative art, and textiles from East Asia, South Asia, the Himalayan kingdoms, and Southeast Asia. The department is renowned for its Chinese calligraphy and paintings—both monumental landscapes and more intimate glimpses of nature—as well as for its Japanese folding screens and woodblock prints and its assemblage of functional, ritual, and luxury objects in many media. Stone and metal sculptures from South and Southeast Asia and early paintings from Nepal and Tibet are other areas of strength within the collection.

Costume Institute Collection - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Costume Institute houses a collection of more than thirty thousand costumes and accessories spanning five continents and as many centuries. Arguably the preeminent institution of its kind in the world, the matrix of The Costume Institute collection was the Museum of Costume Art, an independent entity formed in 1937. Led by Neighborhood Playhouse founder Irene Lewisohn, the Museum of Costume Art benefited from gifts from Irene Lewisohn and her sister Alice Lewisohn Crowley, as well as from theatrical designers Aline Bernstein and Lee Simonson, among many others. In 1946, with the financial support of the fashion industry, the Museum of Costume Art merged with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Costume Institute became a department in its own right in 1959. The legendary fashion arbiter Diana Vreeland, who served as special consultant from 1972 until her death in 1989, created a spectacular suite of costume exhibitions, including "The World of Balenciaga" (1973), "Hollywood Design" (1974), "The Glory of Russian Costume" (1976), and "Vanity Fair" (1977), galvanizing audiences and setting the international standard for the opulent exhibition of costume, chiefly based on loan items...

Drawings and Prints - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum owns approximately fifteen thousand drawings and 1.5 million prints. The Department of Drawings and Prints focuses almost exclusively on works of graphic art produced after the Middle Ages in Western Europe and in North America. The collection of drawings is known particularly for its works by Italian and French artists of the fifteenth through the nineteenth century. One corollary of its impressive scope is that artists whose paintings are extremely rare—such as Michelangelo, Pontormo, and Altdorfer—are represented at the Metropolitan by splendid sheets that demonstrate their fluency with chalk, ink, and wash. The collection of northern Gothic and Renaissance prints is one of the finest in the world, and eighteenth-century Italian and nineteenth-century French prints are richly represented. Also in the department's care are more than twelve thousand illustrated books and a comprehensive collection of designs for Renaissance and Baroque architecture and the decorative arts.

European Paintings - Old Master and Nineteenth-Century - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The Metropolitan Museum's collection of Old Master and nineteenth-century European paintings—one of the greatest such collections in existence—numbers approximately 2,200 works, dozens of which are instantly recognizable worldwide. The French, Italian, and Dutch schools are most strongly represented, with fine works also by British, Netherlandish, German, Spanish, and Flemish masters. The department's holdings—which consist not only of paintings on canvas and wood but also of frescoes, oil sketches, and finished pastels on paper, as well as a small number of Greek and Russian icons—range in date from the twelfth through the nineteenth century. Among its many masterpieces are exceptional assemblages of the work of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo; of the French Impressionists (the Museum owns thirty-seven Monets and twenty-one oil paintings by Cézanne); and of Vermeer, whose five canvases at the Metropolitan surpass the number at any other museum in the world.

European Sculpture and Decorative Arts - Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)
September 04, 2019 - New York

The 50,000 objects in the Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts constitute a comprehensive and important historical collection, one of the Metropolitan Museum's largest, reflecting the development of a number of art forms in the major Western European countries from the early fifteenth through the early twentieth century. The department's holdings cover the following areas: sculpture in many sizes and media, woodwork and furniture, ceramics and glass, metalwork and jewelry, horological and mathematical instruments, and tapestries and textiles. Ceramics made in Asia for export to European markets and sculpture and decorative arts produced in Latin America during this period are also collected by the department. Distinguished works of Italian Renaissance and eighteenth-century French sculpture abound in a series of gallery spaces, ranging from the soaring and sunlit Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court to beautifully appointed period rooms. Among the department's best-known masterpieces in marble are Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Bacchanal and Houdon's portrait of his infant daughter, Sabine. From the nineteenth century there is an extensive collection of sculp... (read more)

Arms and Armor - Metropolitan Museum of No (MET)
Through September 04, 2019 - New York

The collection of armor, edged weapons, and firearms in The Metropolitan Museum of Art ranks with those of the other great armories of the world, in Vienna, Madrid, Dresden, and Paris. It consists of approximately 15,000 objects that range in date from about 400 B.C. to the nineteenth century. Though Western Europe and Japan are the regions most strongly represented—the collection of more than five thousand pieces of Japanese armor and weapons is the finest outside Japan—the geographical range of the collection is extraordinary, with examples from the Near East, the Middle East, India, Central Asia, China, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and North America. The focus is on outstanding craftsmanship and decoration—that is, items often intended solely for display rather than for actual use, from minute ornamental sword fittings to full suits of armor.

Bill Charlap Trio - Village Vanguard
September 07, 2019 - New York

As a unit, this must be one of the best piano trios ever, and certainly as instantly recognisable as any of its great predecessors. Charlap’s touch on the keyboard is light, almost stealthy, even when playing full chords, but always firm, clear and beautifully articulated. With the spirited support of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (famously unrelated), the total effect is just perfect. As always, Charlap’s playing provides convincing proof that it is still possible to create fresh but pertinent treatments of well-known standard songs.

But Martha's husband Warren built the system, and somewhere on another plane, Martha is still in love with Jim Morrison.

Paprika - IFC Center
Through September 07, 2019 - New York

35mm Print! Staff Pick! Chosen by Andrew. "In the 11 years since its release, PAPRIKA, from Perfect Blue director Satoshi Kon, has garnered cult status as an ambitious sci-fi oddity. Not just that, but it's a mind-blowing swan song for the talented director who died in 2010. "The film takes place in a relatively near-future Japan where a revolutionary experimental device called the DC Mini allows users to interact with their dreams and the dreams of others. As a troubled detective receives illegal in-dream therapy from a mysterious figure known as Paprika, the DC Mini's untapped power threatens to envelop the entire world in a living lucid dream where reality and fantasy become indistinguishable.

Bringing out the Dead - IFC Center
Through September 07, 2019 - New York

35mm Print! Staff Pick! Chosen by Luke. "BRINGING OUT THE DEAD, based on a scorchingly vivid 1998 novel by Joe Connelly, describes the life of a night-shift paramedic encountering one bizarre crisis after another and very nearly stretched to the breaking point. 'I'd always had nightmares, but now the ghosts didn't wait for me to sleep,' says Frank Pierce (played soulfully by Nicolas Cage), although Travis Bickle of Taxi Driver might have said the same. In fact, Frank's ambulance carries Taxi Driver as dangerously heavy baggage when it makes its nightly rounds. Twenty-five years later New York's neon lights whiz past Mr. Scorsese's camera much faster, but the sights on the tour have barely changed. "But the essence has changed: the loner who sought violent release in Taxi Driver has become a lonely guy seeking a state of grace. Faithfully and succinctly adapted from Mr. Connelly's book by Paul Schrader (who also revisits his Taxi Driver triumph here), the film tells of a man driven wild by real horrors, not paranoid imaginings. Early in the film Frank and one of his several sharply etched partners (John Goodman) answer a call from the Burke family and find the senior Mr. Burke ap... (read more)

It's fitting to have a multi-media team when your show is a multi-cultural, multi-media dark comedy more than reminiscent of Black Mirror, The Handmaid's Tale, and VR. Abdication! delivers a tongue-in-cheek three-episode anthology shining a light on social media, human interaction, and finally - as depicted in The Handmaid's Tale - lack of individualism. These Black Mirror-type tales illustrate potential versions of what life will look like if we give away even more of our autonomy in exch... (read more)

Everything's Fine: a performative exploration of mental illness - Red Room at KGB Bar
September 08, 2019 - New York

Mental illness comes in different forms, and in many ways, society still does not know how to deal with it or those who suffer from it. EVERYTHING’S FINE presents performances of music, poetry, theater, and other art that grapples with the difficulties of coping with different types of mental illness. Rather than concealing the condition, we can use art to connect emotionally with these difficulties, whether they’re experienced firsthand or through a friend or relative.

911 Memorial Concert - The Creative Cultural Center St. Veronica
September 08, 2019 - New York

Schiller Institute NYC Chorus 9-11 Memorial Concert, featuring Johannes Brahms Nänie Op. 82, Franz Schubert Mass in G, J.S. Bach Jesu, Meine Freude, and African-American Spirituals. The Schiller Chorus has performed concerts on 9-11 every year since 2016, when it performed four back-to-back performances of Mozart's Requiem in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and New Jersey. These concerts and the rehearsal process leading into them constitute a living memorial for those who perished on 9-11 and those who have since died as a result of those tragic attacks. It is for us, the living, to commit to creating a world of beauty and peace. The keystone of this year's tribute will be a performance of Johannes Brahm's beautiful choral and orchestral arrangement of the poem by Friedrich Schiller, Nänie. This poem takes up through the lens of ancient Greek mythology the question of the inevitability of death: "Auch das Schöne muß sterben," that even the beautiful must die! This sad occurrence can bring even goddesses to tears. However, their death is not the end when we sing in honor of those dead. Through our songs of lament we give them immortality. They may die, but beauty itself does ... (read more)

If you're an Upper West Side family with kids, chances are that your weekends are filled with birthday parties, sports leagues and music recitals. By Sunday afternoon your refrigerator is empty and everyone is wiped. This is our reality, too, and we're going to fix it. On two First Sundays in April and May (April 7 and May 5), we are piloting "Out of Leftovers" at Bar Thalia, the cafe & bar inside Symphony Space, at the corner of 95th and Broadway. The cafe opens at 5pm and we will fill the room with music at 5:30. There is a very tasty menu (go look!) as well as beer, wine and cocktails available.

Whipped @ Theater for the New City 2019 Dream Up Festival - Theater for the New City
Through September 08, 2019 - New York

It’s 2037 and the planet is teetering on the verge of a global economic meltdown as well as facing the specter of ecological doomsday. Against this dystopian backdrop, America has sworn in its 1st female President promising a return to values of austerity and propriety. Frank and Cassie Fornitelli, a struggling couple with some uncomfortable secrets between them, are visited by Whip, a senior government case officer for the newly minted Department of Personal Responsibility and Rectitude, who is charged with helping the Fornitellis get their financial troubles in order. Whip, an Asian-American with an English accent, is not the devoted, squeaky clean official that he’s cracked up to be. He has a dark hidden agenda. “Whipped” is a black comedy/psychological thriller that satirizes how the ideal of government by the people, of the people and for the people is all too often just an empty slogan.

The Maternity Monologues - Theater for the New City

Written in the tradition of The Vagina Monologues, The Maternity Monologues is an episodic play featuring a unique chorus of voices- all female characters, talking about the taboo subjects of pregnancy, birth and child rearing. Just as Eve Ensler’s play sought to break down the barriers of shame around the word vagina, and the recent Bush Theatre production Hijabi Monologues challenged stereotypes of Muslim women, The Maternity Monologues demystifies the female experience of pregnancy, birth and mothering. Having trained as a journalist, Catherine Higgins-Moore interviewed women about their experiences of pregnancy and childbirth.

Graffiti Warriors: Bama and Pistol, Pioneers of Subway Art - The Village Alliance
Through September 13, 2019 - New York

This is free and open to the public. In the early 1970s, the felt-tipped, penned initials on New York City's subway morphed into multicolored lettering and illustrations sprayed on the trains and tunnels with aerosol paint cans. Inner-city kids from the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn viewed the trains as a rolling canvas showcasing their art for all New Yorkers, rich and poor alike. In so doing, they pioneered an indigenous urban American art form--graffiti, now recognized worldwide as the visual component of hip-hop culture. This exhibition celebrates the past and present art of two graffiti artists--Richard Admiral, Jr. and his buddy Lonnie Heller, aka Bama and Pistol--who helped pioneer subway graffiti before the art form was chronicled by acclaimed photographers Henry Chalfant and Martha Cooper in the late '70s.

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.

These women, famous not only for sex-appeal but also for their talents—and for a spirit which today we would call ‘entrepreneurial’— fascinated both their wealthy patrons and the artists who created the world’s great masterpieces. But who were they? How did they rise to their positions? And how did they maintain their prominence despite their scandalous reputations? OH, THE STORIES YOU’LL HEAR… To find out, join us as we explore the lives and loves that lie behind the paintings.

DISCOVER HISTORY’S SCANDALOUS, FEISTY WOMEN FROM ANCIENT GREEK HETAERAE TO MADAME X Courtesans, royal mistresses, scandalous women of every sort—the walls of the Metropolitan Museum are lined with them, from ancient Greek hetaerae to Sargent’s Madame X. These women, famous not only for sex-appeal but also for their talents—and for a spirit which today we would call ‘entrepreneurial’— fascinated both their wealthy patrons and the artists who created the world’s great masterpieces. But who were they? How did they rise to their positions? And how did they maintain their prominence despite their scandalous reputations? OH, THE STORIES YOU’LL HEAR… To find out, join us as we explore the lives and loves that lie behind the paintings.

"Passage" - A Solo Exhibition by Grant Haffner - Tambaran 2 Gallery
Through October 05, 2019 - New York, New York

Tambaran 2 Gallery and The TAX Collection are pleased to present 'Passage' - a solo exhibition by New York artist Grant Haffner. Opening September 5th - Haffner's latest exhibition and first with the gallery presents a collection of new original work that explores memory, transition, movement and the biological relationship between humans and nature. Grant Haffner was a resident of Long Island’s East End for most of his life. His images are still inspired by and reflect the country roads, flat landscapes and surrounding water that he would absorb while traveling the area in his pickup truck. Through linear, dreamlike landscapes, Haffner elevates the often overlooked experience of road-travel to an exploration of the subtlety of light and emotion.

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.

Minerva Cuevas: Disidencia - The Mishkin Gallery
Through November 01, 2019 - New York

NEW YORK, NY —The Mishkin Gallery presents Disidencia, a solo exhibition by artist Minerva Cuevas. The exhibition opens on Thursday, August 29, 6 to 8 pm, and will be on view through to November 1, 2019. For her first solo exhibition in New York, artist Minerva Cuevas presents a body of video work that makes concise connections between the consequences of dominant economic ideologies and urgent, global ecological and social issues. Gathering eight video installations and projections, Disidencia (Dissent) brings together a range of visual strategies that Cuevas has deployed to engage with such topics as the decay of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, corporate America’s insatiable brand of globalization, and a video cartography of protests and resistance throughout her home city. At a time when divisive politics are on the rise and deregulation and privatization seem almost unavoidable, Cuevas shows us an alternative to such dangers and empowers our own social relations. “Titled after one of Cuevas’s emblematic works, Disidencia serves to establish opposition and active contestation,” explains Gabriel Bogossian, who has co-curated the exhibition alongside Solange Farkas, dire...

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.

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

This exhibition and accompanying catalogue examine the confluence of Ralston Crawford's Torn Signs and Semana Santa series, two seemingly disparate themes connected by Crawford’s extraordinary visual memory, working method, and inventiveness. Over the course of four decades, Crawford recorded, transformed, and often merged his experiences and memories in photographs, drawings, etchings, paintings, and film. In 1938, Crawford first photographed a ripped and pasted over sign on the street in Philadelphia. Crawford returned to the theme frequently in the last thirty years of his life, capturing the layered and weathered advertisements plastered around New York City. During this time, he also traveled frequently to Seville, Spain and in 1972, documented the experience of Holy Week. Crawford drew inspiration from a constellation of memory and invention that flowed in multiple directions at once. For him, the rhythmic images of hooded penitents processing through the streets for Holy Week recalled formal elements of his Torn Signs imagery. The convergence of these two incredible series culminated in the powerful, large-scale painting Torn Signs, 1974-76 (Vilcek Foundation Collection).... (read more)

Verdi: Creating Otello and Falstaff - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through January 05, 2020 - Manhattan

After Aida in 1871, except for occasional projects, Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901), Italy's pre-eminent composer, retired from opera at the age of 58. This, however, did not prevent constant pleas from his publisher, Giulio Ricordi (1840–1912), and his future librettist, Arrigo Boito (1842–1918), for the maestro to return to the operatic stage. Reluctantly coaxed out of retirement, Verdi composed what would become the crowning achievements of his career: Otello, premiered in 1887 and Falstaff, in 1893. This exhibition, based on The Enterprise of Opera - Verdi, Boito, Ricordi created by Bertelsmann/Ricordi and curated by Gabriele Dotto is the first in the United States to present rare documents and artifacts from Milan's Ricordi Archive and will offer visitors insight into the production of these two operas as well as the complex enterprise of bringing an opera to life. Set designs, costumes from Milan's Teatro alla Scala, autograph manuscripts, contracts, publications, publicity, video excerpts from recent productions, and other objects in many media will permit visitors to experience the tremendous collaborative efforts behind an operatic production.

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)
