"Josh: The Black Babe Ruth" - Theater For The New City
Through February 25, 2018 - New York City

The play dramatizes the life, loves and ultimately the tragic decline of Josh Gibson, who was perhaps the greatest slugger of the Negro leagues and who, some say, died of a broken heart in 1947, a short step from his prime as a player. The play, based on real events, shows Gibson struggling heroically to make it into the Big Leagues with emotional support from his good friend, the legendary pitcher Satchel Paige, and from the two women who are rivals for his heart--his common law wife and his mistress. Despite his majestic on-field performance, there are immovable obstacles, including resistance to Black players by Major League club owners and Gibson's own personal demons, which suffocate his chances.

Pollock [Us Premiere] - Abrons Art Center
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

Plunder: the Origins of Modern Art - The Cooper Union - 41 Cooper Gallery
February 26, 2018 - New York

From the beginning, art has been imperialism's preferred terrain. Much has been written about the impoverishment of different cultures whose artistic treasures were expropriated to enrich Western aristocracies and embellish Western museums. What will be the meaning of modern art if we consider this plunder its origin? Ariella Azoulay is a Professor of Modern Culture and Media and Comparative Literature at Brown University, a film essayist, and an independent curator of archives and exhibitions. Azoulay's research and forthcoming book focus on the potential history of key political concepts-institutions: archives, sovereignties, art, revolutions, and human rights. Potential history, a concept and an approach that she has developed over the last decade, has far-reaching implications for the fields of political theory, knowledge formations and visual culture. Her books include: Civil Imagination: The Political Ontology of Photography (Verso, 2012) and The Civil Contract of Photography (Zone Books, 2008). Her first photographic archive, Act of State 1967-2007, is part of the Centre Pompidou collection and accessible to researchers. This event, held in partnership with the Hago... (read more)

"A stranger wends through twilit wheat fields in the exquisite opening moments of Govinda Van Maele's fiction feature debut [starring Phantom Thread's Vicky Krieps] … By the following morning he's courted by an elder who finds him a gig and lodging—and then Gutland quietly maunders from folktale to pastoral noir to Polanski-esque uncanny and, finally, back to folk tale. Call it a 'village film,' with an eerie ambiance of secrets, insularity and sinister solidarity." —José Teodoro, Nov/Dec 2017 issue

Mitsuko Uchida, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
February 26, 2018 - New York City

Beethoven's presence hovers about Schubert's C-Minor Sonata, a large-scaled work of restless spirit and austere beauty, while the A-Major Sonata's genial songlike melodies and relaxed tone recall the composer's "Trout" Quintet. The Sonata in G Major—a favorite of Schumann's—is a work of meditative grandeur in which the outward suggestion of a timeless waltz gives way to an expansive and deeply affecting landscape.

Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! host Peter Sagal walk into a bar... No, it's not the start of a joke.

Heyman Center for the Humanities, Second Floor Common Room Speaker: Ahmed Ragab, Richard T.

More details coming soon. Please visit the Heyman Center website for updates. About the Series: As a set of disciplines, the humanities face the challenge of how to write about embodied experiences that resist easy verbal categorization such as illness, pain, and healing. The recent emergence of interdisciplinary frameworks such as narrative medicine has offered a set of methodological approaches to address these challenges. Yet conceptualizing a field of medical humanities also offers a broader umbrella under which to study the influence of medico-scientific ideas and practices on society. Whether by incorporating material culture such as medical artefacts, performing symptomatic readings of poems and novels, or excavating the implicit medical assumptions underlying auditory cultures, the approaches that emerge from a historiographical or interpretiv...

Icp Projected: Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit: Triumphing over Adversity—Japanese American Wwii Incarceration Reflections, Then and Now - International Center of Photography
Through February 26, 2018 - New York

Paul Kitagaki Jr. has been on a journey the last 13 years searching for the identities of the Japanese Americans that were forcibly removed from their homes during World War II, the action of which was documented by War Relocation Authority (WRA) photographers, Dorothea Lange, Clem Albers, Ansel Adams, and others. To date, Kitagaki has photographed over fifty subjects and identified several more subjects to photograph and record their oral history. Many of the 120,000 Issei (first generation Japanese Americans) and Nisei (second generation Japanese Americans) never shared their stories of incarceration with their own families. As some of the subjects (now in their 70s to 90s) recounted their experience, they were overcome with tears and emotion as long forgotten memories returned. For many shame, bitterness, and the spirit of Gaman (enduring the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity) and the concept of "Shikata ga nai," which translates to "it can't be helped or nothing can be done about it," kept them silent. For many, this was the first time they spoke publicly about their experience. This is an American story, told by Americans. Ethnic Japanese Americans were rou... (read more)

February 27, 2018 - New York

Join Naoya Hatakeyama at Dashwood Books for a signing of his latest publication Excavating the Future City (Aperture/Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2018). For the past thirty years, Japanese photographer Naoya Hatakeyama has undertaken a photographic examination of the life of cities and the built environment. Each of his series focuses on a different facet of the growth and transformation of the urban landscape—from studies of architectural maquettes to the extraction and use of natural materials such as limestone, as it is quarried via explosive blasts and subsequently incorporated into the construction of new buildings. In particular, Hatakeyama has routinely returned to the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolis, exploring this ever-evolving urban sprawl from both below and above, mapping the growth and expansion of these sites over time. Additional series focus on other forms of human intervention with the landscape and natural materials, including factories and building sites in Japan and abroad. Finally, his most recent photographs of his hometown of Rikuzentakata, a fishing town that was almost completely destroyed by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, are also included—an ong...

The Chrystie Street Connection: 50 Years Young - New York Transit Museum
February 27, 2018 - New York

In November 1967 and July 1968, the New York City Transit Authority inaugurated a series of new and revised train services on today's B Division train routes, enabled by new track connections and tunnels in built in Manhattan and Brooklyn between 1957 and 1968. The project, collectively known as the Chrystie Street Connection, created new direct routes for Brooklyn-Manhattan train service and removed conflicts between train routes. It was named for its route on Manhattan's Lower East Side, where it joined the IND subway on Houston Street with the BMT tracks on the Williamsburg and Manhattan Bridges. As part of the project, the BMT tracks at DeKalb Avenue were extensively rebuilt and a new station opened at Grand Street. Further north, two new express tracks were built deep below Sixth Avenue between the West 4th Street and 34th Street-Herald Square Stations, and a new two-track subway under Sixth Avenue was added between the 47-50th Street and 57th Street Stations. To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of these projects, Museum volunteer and transit historian Andrew Sparberg will give an illustrated lecture about this important event in New York subway history.

THE STOOP SERIES: Of Sight and Sound: Ford Crull & Brandon Ross - BRIC
February 27, 2018 - Brooklyn

How does improvisation manifest between disciplines? How does creative practice shift when our senses are altered? This evening's program explores these questions through a live artistic collaboration between painter and visual artist Ford Crull and musician Brandon Ross from the band Harriet Tubman. Starting from a state of vulnerability and possibility, both artists are influenced by the other as they improvise the performance: Crull, creating a large-scale painting while blindfolded, and Ross and his ensemble building an evolving musical environment. In a time of increasing interest in advanced technologies outside of ourselves (artificial intelligence and virtual reality, for example), this collaboration asks: what power can be harnessed from of our inner human technologies of consciousness, wonder, and imagination?

The 1938 Projekt: Commemorating 80 Years Since 1938 - Center for Jewish History
February 27, 2018 - New York

A new website and exhibition explore the dramatic events of 1938 from the perspectives of ordinary people. This event focuses on the annexation of Austria (March 12), when nearly 200,000 Jews suddenly became subject to restrictions that had developed over 5 years in Nazi Germany. With Marsha L. Rozenblit, Harvey M. Meyerhoff Professor of Modern Jewish History at the University of Maryland. About the 1938 Projekt Eighty years after the events of 1938, how does one grasp the mixture of horror and surprise felt by the victims of the Nazi regime? One significant way is to look at the letters, diaries, and photographs saved by German Jews and their families. Using documents from our archives and those of several partner institutions, the Leo Baeck Institute – New York | Berlin will update www.1938projekt.org with personal stories based on documents from our own collections and the collections of partner institutions—one for each day in 1938. These materials illustrate the range of reactions and emotions that individuals and families had as they struggled to escape Germany and Austria in order to survive. In addition, significant world events are described alongside the calenda... (read more)

Feb 27 The Counterrevolution: How our Government Went to War Against its Own Citizen - Columbia Maison Française? - Buell Hall
February 27, 2018 - New York

Militarized police officers with tanks and drones. Pervasive government surveillance and profiling. Social media that distract and track us. All of these, contends Bernard Harcourt, are facets of a new and radical governing paradigm in the United States–one rooted in the modes of warfare originally developed to suppress anticolonial revolutions and, more recently, to prosecute the war on terror. The Counterrevolution is a penetrating and disturbing account of the rise of counterinsurgency, first as a military strategy but increasingly as a way of ruling ordinary Americans. Harcourt shows how counterinsurgency's principles–bulk intelligence collection, ruthless targeting of minorities, pacifying propaganda–have taken hold domestically despite the absence of any radical uprising. This counterrevolution against phantom enemies, he argues, is the tyranny of our age. Seeing it clearly is the first step to resisting it effectively. Bernard Harcourt is Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law, Professor of Political Science, and director of the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought at Columbia University. Event co-sponsored by the Maison Francaise, Columbia Center... (read more)

Amy Bloom: White Houses w/ Koa Beck - Books are Magic
February 28, 2018 - Cobble Hill

Join us to celebrate Amy Bloom's compelling new novel, White Houses, about the love affair between Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok. Lorena Hickok meets Eleanor Roosevelt in 1932 while reporting on Franklin Roosevelt's first presidential campaign. Having grown up worse than poor in South Dakota and reinvented herself as the most prominent woman reporter in America, "Hick," as she's known to her friends and admirers, is not quite instantly charmed by the idealistic, patrician Eleanor. But then, as her connection with the future first lady deepens into intimacy, what begins as a powerful passion matures into a lasting love, and a life that Hick never expected to have. She moves into the White House, where her status as "first friend" is an open secret, as are FDR's own lovers. After she takes a job in the Roosevelt administration, promoting and protecting both Roosevelts, she comes to know Franklin not only as a great president but as a complicated rival and an irresistible friend, capable of changing lives even after his death. Through it all, even as Hick's bond with Eleanor is tested by forces both extraordinary and common, and as she grows as a woman and a writer, she never l... (read more)

He remained there and began recording and performing with The New Orleans Jazz Couriers, Percussion Incorporated, and his own group, The Fusicians. The Percussion Incorporated album, Drum Talk, (Greg's first recording) was recorded and released in 1987.

This eloquent profile follows Clark from a childhood visit to an aquarium through her demonstration that sharks can actually be trained and so are not 'mindless killers' as widely supposed" — Kirkus"Keating offers a lively portrait of scientist Eugenie Clark, who pursued a passion for sharks. Through Clark's story, Keating suggests that, with perseverance, a childhood fascination can evolve into a life's work." — Publishers Weekly

February 28, 2018 - Manhattan

Hosted by Georgia Clark Featuring Milly Tamarez, Elliott Sailors, Lois Thompson, Stephanie Gangi, and More TBA Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling event that amplifies women's voices and creativity. Host and event co-founder Georgia Clark (author of The Regulars and the YA novels She's with the Band and Parched), was moved to create Generation Women following conversations with her mother, Jayne, about the sense that women disappear from public conversation as they get older. Clark was inspired to create a safe and welcoming space where women of all ages could join together to be celebrated, explore their experiences and learn from one another. "We live in a society that simply doesn't value older women," says Clark. "With Generation Women, we've created an event where women can come together to tell their own stories and glean vital and vibrant cross-generational wisdom. Also, we can drink wine. Wine is very important." Generation Women combines the vivacity of a literary salon with the importance of a community meeting where elders and youth exchange shared wisdom.

Lynnette Regouby – Threshold: Generations of Change in Botanical Practice at the end of the Ancien Regime - Department of History (Fayerweather)
February 28, 2018 - New York

Speaker: Lynnette Regouby Fougeroux de Bondaroy spent his life in the shadows. His uncle, Duhamel du Monceau, invested the family fortune and decades of labor growing, cutting, and experimenting on trees that could inform the French navy of better ways to grow timber. Fougeroux was absorbed into this world at his mother's death, adopted and trained by his uncle to tend to research subjects whose lives would extend past their own. As a botanist in his own right, Fougeroux's research remained anchored to his uncle's legacy, even as he navigated new scientific, social and political contexts on the eve of the Revolution. Duhamel and Fougeroux lived and worked in the same spaces, institutions, and disciplines, and addressed the same experiments a generation apart. This talk will explore the personal and professional intimacies that sustained a research program dependent on time, the benefit and burden of that intellectual inheritance, and the role of institutions and communities whose perpetual lives made them essential for carrying research forward into the future. This event is free and open to the public. This event is part of the New York History of Science Lecture Series.

B-Side: The Shacks, Hosted by Rachael Pazdan - BRIC
March 01, 2018 - Brooklyn

Fronted by 20-year-old singer/bassist Shannon Wise and 21-year-old guitarist/producer Max Shrager, The Shacks are already well on their way to becoming one of the year's big breakouts, and their remarkable debut album, 'Haze,' solidifies their status as a band with ability to deliver on the well-deserved buzz. With a sound that's somehow both retro and modern at once, their cinematic songs play out like the soundtrack to some long lost 16mm film, beckoning you into their grainy, saturated world of analog beauty. It's as unique as it sounds, and in the short time that they've been together, The Shacks have already made an impressive mark. Their hypnotic cover of Ray Davies' "This Strange Effect" soundtracked a new iPhone commercial, one which actually stars Wise herself, and their self-titled EP earned the band dates with St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Chicano Batman, and their Big Crown Records labelmates Lee Fields & The Expressions. Critics have been quick to notice the group, too, with NPR's World Café calling their music "the early work of a force to be reckoned with" and Vice i-D raving that they "bring a fresh sensibility to classic American sounds." Host: Rachel Pazdan

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is author of From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation (2016), an examination of the history and politics of Black America and the development of the social movement Black Lives Matter in response to police violence in the United States. Taylor's research examines race and public policy including American housing policies. Dr. Taylor is currently working on a manuscript titled Race for Profit: Black Housing and the Urban Crisis of the 1970s, which looks at the federal government's promotion of single-family homeownership in Black communities after the urban rebellions of the 1960s. Taylor looks at how the federal government's turn to market-based solutions in its low-income housing programs in the 1970s impacted Black neighborhoods, Black women on welfare, and emergent discourses on the urban "underclass." Taylor is interested in the role of private sector forces, typically hidden in public policy making and execution, in the "urban crisis" of the 1970s. This is the second public event in BCRW's Poverty and Housing Working Group series

Working Through Influence: A Conversation with Artist Angel Otero - The Bronx Museum of the Arts
March 01, 2018 - Bronx

In 1973, literary critic Harold Bloom published The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry. His central thesis was that poets are both hindered and encouraged in their creative process by the ambiguous relationship they necessarily maintain with precursor poets. A similarly fraught and productive relationship exists between visual artists and their own forerunners. Painter Angel Otero and critic-curator Christian Viveros-Fauné examine both the anxiety and advantages of influence in a freewheeling conversation that centers on Otero's relationship with various generations of artists as well as on the Puerto Rican painter's exhibition "Angel Otero: Elegies," currently on view at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Davy Mooney Quintet - Smalls Live
March 01, 2018 - New York City

If that Dickens chap hadn't already snagged it, "A Tale of Two Cities" would make the ideal title for the John Ellis story. The gifted, versatile saxophonist/clarinetist/composer occupies an imaginary (and extremely imaginative) space directly between the celebratory, welcoming spirit of New Orleans and the edgy, frantic streets of New York City. Both as the leader of his own eclectic projects and as an in-demand sideman for a mind-boggling number and variety of artists, Ellis expresses a keen intellect and easy virtuosity while maintaining a mischievous gleam in his eye and never letting tongue stray far from cheek. That combination is best showcased in Ellis' eccentric combo Double-Wide, which recently released its third album, Charm, on Ellis' own Parade Light Records. While the title is an apt descriptor of the band's inviting, joyous vibe, its soul is even better captured by the song that gives the album its name: "Charm is Nearly Always Sinister." That dichotomy perfectly encapsulates Double-Wide's split metropolitan personality, with a chainsaw-juggling balance of bayou brass, raucous gospel, and devil-may-care modern jazz. Ellis' band of merry pranksters includes Gary Ve... (read more)

Today Seliger owns a studio in New York City's West Village and is currently under contract with Condé Nast Publications, shooting for Vanity Fair and GQ.

March 03, 2018 - New York City

A highly talented and uniquely gifted young composer, Jade Synstelien has immersed himself in the venerable traditions of jazz while developing an irrepressible individuality in his compositions and performance. Jade's music is inspired by the singular goal of bringing American musical heritage to the people of the United States, to spread the understanding and appreciation of our major cultural contribution to the world.

A musician, composer, arranger, and band leader, Jade picked up the alto sax at age eleven but traded it for a guitar at thirteen. He grew up traveling and living all over the United States, and has worked as a professional musician since the age of fifteen, he has become well-versed in all styles of musical performance.

Voice Cult: Come Sing - House of Yes
March 03, 2018 - New York

Voice Cult: Sing. Connect. Express. Heal. Singing together can be closer than touching. ::::: About Voice Cult ::::: ON the first Saturday of every month at House of Yes, we ask you to travel from near and far, and to bring your voice to us. You have been singing since the beginning of time. We connect, align, vibrate, express, process, remember, forget, wish, apologize, forgive, go into altered states, heal ourselves and each other, flee, find, talk to dead grandfathers, lure each other into love, become our own mothers, and paint the room with iridescence. And frequently we have no idea what the hell we are doing, which is okay too.If you can speak, then you can sing - even if you have only ever croaked out thin ratchety wisps of songs and especially if your mom told you that you were tone-deaf in the fourth grade. If you are a great singer, come because you love singing, the more the merrier. We perform vocal healing rituals. We sing through the colors of the rainbow. We sing in circles. We sing on the floor. We sing for aerialists flying through the sky. We hug our own shadows while singing Soundgarten. We are irreverent and we like to try new things.

Doors open at 8pm! "It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement, the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest.

David Attenborough returns to the world's oceans, documenting the rare and unusual creatures of the deep, as well as documenting the problems our oceans face.

Danh Vo Selects: The Exorcist (1973) - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
March 03, 2018 - New York

Hand-selected by the artist to accompany his exhibition Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, this film series screens on Saturdays during the month of March in the New Media Theater. The Exorcist (1973), dir. William Friedkin, 122 min. "[The Exorcist] was shown to Vo by his horror-film-obsessed mother at the age of seven, when it no doubt made a terrifyingly indelible impression. The film's interrogation of religious faith and doubt, its depiction of the appropriated and dislocated body, and its themes of parental nurture and neglect can all be similarly traced in the artist's work." – exhibition curator Katherine Brinson One of the most profitable horror movies ever made and the first example of the genre to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, this tale of an exorcism is based loosely on reported actual events. It centers on a young girl's bizarre and distressing behavior, which is identified by a local priest as a demonic possession. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert to help with the difficult job.

David Gibson Quintet - Smalls Live
March 04, 2018 - New York City

Trombonist David Gibson has enjoyed a varied musical career which is deeply rooted in the genres of jazz and funk. While reared in Oklahoma, Gibson's musical journey steered him to New York City. Jazz luminary Curtis Fuller said about Gibson, "Out of all the young players I hear in the music today, David is one of very few who speaks the language of jazz". David's newest recording, "BOOM!" is currently available from Posi-tone Records. It's his third for Posi-tone and marks a return to the traditional jazz quintet structure, featuring Josh Evans-trumpet, Theo Hill-piano, Alex Claffy-bass, Kush Abadey-drums, and Gibson's sonorous trombone. This fiery collection of musicians breathes life into eight new compositions in addition to newly minted arrangements of Tom McIntosh's "The Cup Bearers" and Eric Clapton's "Change the World". This iteration of Gibson's ensemble continues down the eclectic path he's been traversing for years and at times throughout, their new recording evokes modern post-bop, electric Miles and the piquant taste of the present day. There's something for everyone contained in this musical album.

Jess Pretty states, "i'm interested in rigorously interrogating pleasure as a way of living past survival, seeking other worlds and times and spaces for art. other possibilities for our delicate bodies to be present in performance. questioning how are we constantly evaluating the stakes involved in our work-making process. the labor of being unapologetic. i desire work rooted in the fantastic that helps formulate how to queer our own possibilities and modes of migration."

This is the Color Described by the Time - The Flea Theater
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

In THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, collaboratively created by the performance laboratory Door 10, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein’s repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape. THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME is a fractured journey through Stein’s daily routine in France during World War II as she struggles with writer’s block, listens to the radio, shares a meal with Alice B. Toklas, and confronts her own mortality. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein’s forgotten politics and raises questions about the inextricable link between the political, personal, and artistic. The cast for THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME will feature Stephanie Roth-Haberle (Drama Desk Award nominee for Artist Descending a Staircase; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Christina Rouner (The Malcontent with Red Bull Theater; Coram Boy on Broadway), Ean Sheehy (Re...

Machinal at Adelphi University from February 27 – March 4 - Adelphi University Performing Arts Center
Through March 04, 2018 - Garden City

The students of the Adelphi University Department of Theatre present Machinal, a gripping drama by American journalist and playwright Sophie Treadwell. Machinal will run from February 27 through March 4 in the Olmsted Theatre in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (Adelphi PAC), 1 South Ave, Garden City, New York. Machinal is directed by Maggie Lally. It’s America’s Golden Age, a time of happiness, freedom and prosperity – or is it? For one young woman in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, life is nothing like she hoped it would be. Tormented and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and an unwanted motherhood, she finally discovers joy in the form of an illicit love affair and her life is forever changed. A groundbreaking work in the landscape of American theatre, Machinal is a riveting look at how advances in the industrial age (not unlike the digital age) created an atmosphere virtually devoid of empathy and humanity trapping many women in a male-dominated oppressive wasteland. Showtimes Tuesday, February 27 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 28 6:30 p.m. (post-show discussion) Thursday, March 1 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 2 7:30 p.m. Satu... (read more)

Roots of 'The Dinner Party': History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum
Through March 04, 2018 - Prospect Heights

Roots of "The Dinner Party": History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago's evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making, and a testament to the power of historical revisionism. Chicago's ambitious research project combatted the absence of women from mainstream historical narratives and blazed the trail for feminist art historical methodologies in an era of social change. It also validated mediums traditionally considered the domain of women and domestic labor, as the artist studied and experimented with China painting, porcelain, and needlework. The exhibition presents rarely seen test plates, research documents, ephemera, notebooks, and preparatory drawings from 1971 through 1979 alongside The Dinner Party, encouraging exploration of its formal, conceptual, and material progress.

While making dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – through stories of racial injustice and personal strife, unified by faith, family, and time.

Through March 09, 2018 - Soho

The Drawing Center is pleased to announce Winter Term, a new annual initiative in which the museum will partner with an artist or organization whose mission it is to explore the transformative role that drawing can play in civic and global society. The yearly program, which will consist of public events, classes, and performances as well as an exhibition, will build a community of people to investigate the efficacy of drawing as a tool for addressing inequity and encouraging social change. In a world ever more in need of human connection and compassion, Winter Term will ask how drawing, the most universal medium, might extend beyond the gallery space to provide concrete tools for collective engagement and collaboration. In this way, Winter Term provides a new model for exhibition making as well as for the role that art institutions can play in the real world. For the first session, which will take place in February and March of 2018, The Drawing Center has invited New York-based artist Torkwase Dyson to create an installation and organize a two-week series of classes, discussions, and formal experiments developed from her incipient project the Wynter-Wells Drawing School for E...

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through March 10, 2018 - Bronx

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will plac... (read more)

Advanced Track Program - ICP School, Rita K. Hillman Gallery
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

2017 Student Exhibition The photographers in fl?an strip away the skin of societal conformity and conventions that we succumb to in the realization of ourselves, revealing the sensitive flesh both of which we are and of those we love. This exhibition flays off the outer coverings that protect us from the dangers that self-identification, inner exploration, and outer vulnerability expose us to. Fl?an relies on codes and cues of society, class, culture, and ideology as a puzzle of pieces in the construction of their meaning. Images in this show explore the way place can invoke our susceptibility and how our bodies are our limitations. The skin, the very thing that protects us from the world we navigate, is stripped away. Through various explorations in materials and processes, these images address the most private parts of our beings, the relationships we carry through our lives, and the world in which we live. This exhibition showcases work by nine recent graduates of the International Center of Photography's Advanced Track Program. Students enrolled in ICP's Part-Time Programs participate in a series of unique seminars exploring ideas and materials and create comprehensive... (read more)

Platonov, or A Play with No Name - New Ohio Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: ... (read more)

Installation - Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 13, 2018 - Queens

2014. Ezra Wube (b. 1980, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, lives in Brooklyn). Animation. 1,756 frames, photographed from canvas with oil paint. 4 minutes. Ezra Wube works with video, installation, drawing, painting, and performance. Reflecting on his identity as a person of two cultures at the intersection of tradition and modern life, Wube makes work about the uncertainty of time and place and the malleability of memory. A Memory of Astoria, commissioned by the Museum of the Moving Image, is an impressionistic portrait of the blocks surrounding this building. Wube walked the neighborhood to observe the area's confluence of cultures, focusing on everyday moments, sights, and sounds. He reconstituted these experiences into a poetic visual collage, inserting himself as a silhouetted observer exploring the memories of his walks. The production of A Memory of Astoria was an intensive, months-long process, with each frame painted in sequence on top of the last. The result is striking: street scenes assemble and disassemble, leaving visible marks of the past as if time and space have melted together. Through these impressions, Wube reveals a diverse, rapidly changing neighborhood that th... (read more)

Paul Richard: Negative Man - 212 Arts
Through March 14, 2018 - New York

212 Arts is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Paul Richard's work entitled "Negative Man". The exhibit marks the first occasion that Paul's vivid portraiture will be in dialogue with his street work. While his portraiture is elaborate and cerebral, his street art possesses a playful sense of spontaneity and quickness as he manages to capture the quintessential short-hand features of his subjects with nothing more than a dripped contour line of paint. Paul's sidewalk drips have been captivating New Yorkers for over 25 years and have endured with lasting popularity. The recognizability of his work is a testament to Richard's creativity in and out of the gallery and as such has earned him accolades in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Vogue, the Huffington Post, Architectural Digest, and Time Magazine. His collectors have come to include: Marc Jacobs, Beyonce, Jay-Z, John Varvatos, Justin Bieber, Elton John, Gerard Butler, and Christina Aguilera among many others.

Tom Leaver - McKenzie Fine Art
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

The imagery in Tom Leaver's paintings is entirely imaginary. The paintings are recognizable as landscapes, but they do not depict any specific place the artist has seen nor are they based on photographs of any topography or locale. Instead, the artist chooses landscape imagery as a vehicle to express emotional, psychological and spiritual states of mind. Leaver creates his paintings using his gloved hands, applying the oil paint in sweeps of his palm or the side of his hand, or in fingertip daubs. The only brush he uses is for the application of turpentine, and a rag is employed to pull the solvent through the paint or wipe it away. Overall, there is sfumato-like softness in the paint application, a change from the more defined and energetic mark-making of his previous body of work. There has also been a subtle and intuitive shift toward a subdued palette of varying brown and gold tonalities, offset by lighter passages in the sky above or bodies of water below. The gentle and atmospheric space Leaver produces in these new paintings is deep, mysterious, and seemingly endless. Leaver cites as influences Chinese landscape painting, which is suggestive rather than literal, and... (read more)

"Extreme Weather" - La Mama E.T.C.
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

Set during the record hot summers of 2004 and 2012, the play pits a scientist named John Bjornson against his twin sister, Jeanne, in a no-holds barred struggle over land ownership and the future use of their family's wilderness estate. "Extreme Weather" was developed by theater three collaborative, in a series of readings and workshops at the Cherry Lane Theater. The producers feel that, as opposed to 2014, when climate change was more theoretically foreseen, "Extreme Weather" is now a play whose time has come. "The play is no longer bringing the news," says playwright Malpede, "it is only reflecting it."

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures - Museum of Chinese in America
Through March 25, 2018 - Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal - Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal is the first U.S. museum exhibition to present the extraordinary drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Spain, 1852–1934), the father of modern neuroscience. Cajal's astonishing depictions of the brain—which combine cutting-edge scientific knowledge with consummate draftsmanship—offer much greater clarity than photographs, so much so that they are still in wide use today.Featuring approximately 80 of Cajal's drawings, the show will situate them within the history of scientific illustration from the 16th to 19th centuries, and juxtapose them with contemporary visualizations of the brain. Organized by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in collaboration with the Cajal Institute, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by Abrams.

Baya: Woman of Algiers - Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition. Woman of Algiers reexamines Baya's career within Surrealist, "outsider," and North-African post-colonial art contexts.

In Practice: Another Echo - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's open call commissioning program for emerging artists. Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter's mission, In Practice provides new ways to discover the most innovative artwork, foster experimentation, and give participants the opportunity to develop and present new work. The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman and is curated by Allie Tepper, SculptureCenter's 2018 Curatorial Fellow.

In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed soci... (read more)

Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

New York City-based artist Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez' solo exhibition at SculptureCenter features a newly commissioned video work titled The Maid, 2018, as well as additional newly produced video and photographic work. The Maid follows a selection of American artist Sherrie Levine's Newborn sculptures throughout the course of a day in various residences, private and institutional, from New York to Los Angeles. Levine made the works in crystal and black cast glass in the early 1990s, molding them after Constantin Brancusi's marble and bronze sculptures of the same name from 1915 and 1920. By featuring not only Levine's sculptures, already appropriations of another artist's work, but also capturing their contemporary environments, Rodriguez engages the conditions and settings in which art circulates, proposing that the futures of artworks are inherently speculative. Taking its title from a 1913 short story by Robert Walser about a devoted maid searching for a lost child who has been put under her ... (read more)

Animal Spring was originally created as an artful card game in four languages—English, French, Arabic, and Dutch, by the Wiels Museum in Brussels.

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist - Grey Art Gallery
Through April 06, 2018 - New York

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through April 07, 2018 - New York

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will plac... (read more)

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time - Lesley Heller
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its en... (read more)

Unpacking the Green Book - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation. Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now i... (read more)

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the m... (read more)

Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another.

Rebel Spirits: Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr - New York Historical Society
Through May 20, 2018 - Upper West Side

On the surface, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were born worlds apart?culturally, geographically, racially, financially, and politically. But by the time they were killed within two months of each other in 1968, their worlds had come together. Images taken by some of the most renowned photojournalists of the era?alongside original correspondence, publications, and ephemera?illustrate the overlapping trajectory of their lives, exploring their deepening tie as well as how their interests expanded beyond civil rights and organized crime to encompass shared concerns for the poor and opposition to the war in Vietnam.

Peter Hujar: Speed of Life - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a boh... (read more)

Through May 28, 2018 - New York

On February 22, 2018, Neue Galerie New York will present "Towards Catastrophe: German and Austrian Art of the 1930s," an exhibition devoted to the development of the arts in Germany and Austria during a decade marked by economic crisis, political disintegration, and social chaos. The Neue Galerie is the sole venue for the exhibition, which will be on view through May 28, 2018. The exhibition is organized by Dr. Olaf Peters, University Professor at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, and serves as the third show in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Peters that focus on German history.

Compass Song - Times Square
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Ti... (read more)

Derrick Adams: Sanctuary - MAD Museum of Art and Design
Through August 12, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image.Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America.

La Frontera - Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)
Through September 23, 2018 - New York

Nearly two thousand miles long, the US-Mexico border (la frontera) is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Although predominantly depicted in the American media as a hub of drug trafficking and violence, the border—porous in nature—is also a place that allows for the exchange of ideas, wealth, and culture. Recently at the forefront of political and cultural conversation following the current US President's anti-immigration discourse and executive orders, the border has been characterized by contradictions since the nineteenth century, when the US annexed an important portion of Mexican territory. For Mexicans, Central Americans, and the United States citizens living alongside it, the border presents daily challenges that carry within them both hope and devastation. It is a complex physical, economic, cultural, social, and emotional landscape of human interaction.

Susan York Foundation - The Drawing Center
Through October 18, 2018 - Soho

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence
