Energy & Geopolitics: Is Japan Ready to Deal with the Uncertainties? - Japan Society
December 10, 2019 - New York

The world faces an enormous challenge in meeting the global energy requirement that is expected to grow 50 percent by 2050. As the energy transition to cleaner fuels progresses, the energy equation is becoming ever more complex with the U.S. ramping up to become an energy superpower, renewables maturing to become a competitive source of power, and the trade war with China risking deceleration of global growth. Furthermore, the September 2019 Saudi oil facility attacks revealed the vulnerabilities of energy markets, placing geopolitics front and center. Is Japan ready to face these uncertainties? How will the geopolitical situation in the Middle East play out? What role will climate regulation have on energy markets? How will the ongoing trade war with China impact energy markets? In this program, energy experts discuss a wide range of topics surrounding the geopolitics of energy and potential implications for Japan.Non-members: $20Corporate members: Free, up to designated number of tickets; additional tickets $15Individual members at Patron Circle level and above: $15Academic and government: $15

Harlem Jazz Series - Craig Harris and Harlem Nightsongs - Greater Calvary Baptist Church
December 10, 2019 - New York

When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him. From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, into the confrontational expressionism of the '60s avant-garde, Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word. He has performed with a veritable Who's Who of progressive jazz's most important figures and his own projects display both a unique sense of concept and a total command of the sweeping expanse of musical expression. It is those two qualities that have dominated Craig's forty years of activity, bringing him far beyond the confines of the jazz world into the sphere of multimedia and performance art as composer, performer, conceptualist, music curator, and artistic director. Craig, who comes from a tradition of art as a cultural facilitation to help promote change, has employed his musical voice to comment on social injustice with projects including God's Trombones, based on James Weldon Johnson's book of sermons; Souls Within the Veil commemorating the centennial of W....

December 13, 2019 - New York

MLG's exhibition will feature a selection from over 125 individual titles, silkscreens, prints, and paintings.When I manage to snatch the tail of an idea, I must then transport a fragment of it to a completely different region of my brain . . . Once a deadline is met, that region can relax, so I graft the new idea onto that relaxed region in order to nurture and grow it. This is the process I endlessly repeat, and as such, I can never see the end of it; each day of unease is followed by another, and only for a moment when a project is complete do, I get to experience a modicum of liberation. As a distant result of such a thankless, humorless repetition, interesting works get made.Takashi Murakami's colorful paintings reveal the consistent, universal themes that have guided the artist's work. Each work of art reflects his craft and insightful engagement with popular culture, folklore, and pop art style, all mixed with traditional Japanese culture. One of today's most imaginative artists, Murakami is universally recognized for both his fine art and commercial output including collaborations with hip-hop stars Kanye West and Pharrell Williams, as well as designs for the fa...

When I Wanted Everything: New Work by Alex Sewell - TOTAH Gallery
Through December 18, 2019 - New York

TOTAH Gallery on the Lower East Side presents When I Wanted Everything, an exhibition of new works by Alex Sewell, opening October 24th, from 6-8pm, on view through December 18th. The images populating Alex Sewells paintings archive an ongoing dialectic between the artists personal memory and the collective identity of the American psyche. A restive sense of melancholy threads through each work on exhibit using a disarmingly personable tone. Sewell meticulously destabilizes all-too-familiar vistas of American suburbia, imposing a translucent scrim of violence onto objects ordinarily earmarked for passive consumption. Video games, television, toys of every kind become eerily macabre, giving the lie to the placid everydayness of his themes.

Using the materiality of print and handmade paper, the two- and three-dimensional works in this exhibition speak to cross-cultural and deeply embedded global struggles. Here, the precarity of paper becomes a metaphor for the precarity of place.

The Classical Theatre of Harlem Presents a Christmas Carol in Harlem - City College Center for the Arts Aaron Davis Hall
Through December 21, 2019 - New York

The Classical Theatre of Harlem (CTH, Ty Jones, Producing Artistic Director) presents the second year of its holiday production, A Christmas Carol in Harlem, based on the timeless work by Charles Dickens. Set in present-day Harlem, this holiday treasure is dramatized with CTHs signature style of infusing classic works with an uptown flair. A Christmas Carol in Harlem places Ebenezer Scrooge as a real estate mogul who has made his fortune at the expense of others. Scrooge foregoes using his wealth to affect positive change within his Harlem community and instead lives a life of miserly solitude. That is, until three unexpected visitors arrive on Christmas Eve to show him the value of family and how cooperation can lead to a healthy, thriving and prosperous community.

John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through January 12, 2020 - Manhattan

John Singer Sargent (18561925) was one of the greatest portrait artists of his time. While he is best known for his powerful paintings, he largely ceased painting portraits in 1907 and turned instead to charcoal drawings to satisfy portrait commissions. These drawn portraits represent a substantial, yet often overlooked, part of his practice, and they demonstrate the same sense of immediacy, psychological sensitivity, and mastery of chiaroscuro that animate Sargent's sitters on canvas. The first major exhibition to explore the artist's expressive portraits in charcoal, John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal will recognize the sheer scale of Sargent's achievement as a portrait draftsman. Important international loans, from both public and private collections, will showcase Sargent's sitters, many of them famous for their roles in politics, society, and the arts. The exhibition will also explore the friendships and the networks of patronage that underpinned Sargent's practice as a portrait draftsman in Edwardian Britain and Progressive Era America.

Through February 02, 2020 - Manhattan

Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, known as Guercino (15911666), was arguably the most interesting and diverse draftsman of the Italian Baroque era, a natural virtuoso who created brilliant drawings in a broad range of media.

The exhibition will include sheets from all moments of the artist's career. His early awareness of the work of the Carracci in Bologna is documented by figures drawn from everyday life as well as brilliant caricatures; two drawings for Guercino's own drawing manual are further testament to his interest in questions of academic practice.

Illusions of the Photographer combines a full career retrospectivethe first on Michals to be organized by a New York City museumwith an artist's-choice show, as Michals plumbs the Morgan's vaults for treasures both revered and long-forgotten.
