Lobby Nights: Dj Prestige - Ace Hotel
December 15, 2018 - New York

DJ Prestige is a fine purveyor of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae and other assorted funky treats. When not preserving and promoting quality vinyl records, he is working like a mad scientist to make the perfect cup of coffee at home. He brings his version of the live mix tape to the lobby of Ace Hotel, where funky jazz, deep funk, raw soul, classic hip hop, real reggae, disco tracks, and drum breaks of all kinds make you move and groove like the park jams back in the day. It's all about the vibe. As DJs spin, the photobooth flashes and mixers mix, enjoy delicious selections from the Lobby Bar and high fives from our friendly staff. General RSVP is not required, but does get you on our A-List mailer for the latest in bookings and event info.

Believe In The Wonder Of Giving - Macy's Herald Square
Through January 01, 2019 - New York

Macy's Herald Square will unveil its legendary Christmas windows on Thursday, November 15th at 6:00 pm, signaling the start of the holiday season with a ceremony filled with music, fun, sweet treats and Santaland's elves. This year's theme is "Believe In The Wonder Of Giving." The six enchanted windows will share a tale of friendship, family, adventure, and teamwork as Sunny the Snowpal works to save Christmas with the help of her friends. The windows are sure to delight generations of spectators who have grown up with the annual tradition of visiting the windows, as well as those experiencing the enchantment of a New York City Christmas for the first time.

Liliana Porter: Other Situations - El Museo del Barrio
Through January 27, 2019 - New York

Born in Argentina in 1941, Liliana Porter, originally educated in printmaking — a discipline that deeply influenced her practice — moved to New York in 1964, where she cofounded the New York Graphic Workshop with artists Luis Camnitzer and José Guillermo Castillo. Since then, Porter has worked in a variety of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, assemblages, video, installation and, more recently, theater. Porter's art has been exhibited in more than 35 countries in over 450 group shows, and is a part of public and private collections including El Museo del Barrio. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, and Sculpture Magazine, among other publications. In 2013, the Fundación Patricia Phelps de Cisneros published the book Liliana Porter in Conversation with Inés Katzenstein as part of the Conversaciones/Conversations series. Galleries in Europe, Latin America and the United States represent the artist.
