Ms. Sales has preached around the country on race, class, gender and reconciliation. She has done ground-breaking work on community and non-violence formation and serves as a national convener of the Every Church A Peach Church movement. She came to national attention after organizing a demonstration with other Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee workers in 1965 to protest the actions of local Alabama white grocery store owners who had cheated their parents. The group was arrested and held in jail for six days. After being released, she went to purchase sodas at a nearby store and was threatened at gunpoint by a special county deputy.

BRAIN CLOUD. Every Monday. "My brain is cloudy, my soul is upside-down... When I get that low-down feeling, I know the blues must be someplace around." (Bob Wills)The Brain Cloud's brand of western swing draws from the New Orleans-meets-Texas, strings-meet-horns, jazz-meets-country sound that Bob Wills perfected on his mid-1940's Tiffany Transcriptions radio broadcasts. The Brain Cloud includes Dennis Lichtman (mandolin/fiddle/clarinet), Tamar Korn - of the Cangelosi Cards (vocals), Raphael McGregor (lap steel guitar), Skip Krevens (guitar), Andrew Hall (bass), and Kevin Dorn (drums), plus frequent guest appearances by Matt Munisteri (guitar) and Rob Hecht (fiddle).

Barbès Presents an APAP showcase - Miramar - Barbès
January 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

MIRAMAR. Miramar plays mostly boleros, sung in duo form by Rei Alvarez and Laura Ann Singh and arranged by Chilean-American pianist and organ player Marlysse Argandoña. In the Latin world, Boleros are the ultimate expression of love and suffering and hold cross-generational and cross-national appeal. With a majority of Miramar's members having roots in Puerto Rico, it was only natural that the group paid particular attention to Puerto Rican boleros. Their debut album (out on Barbès Records) is a tribute to Sylvia Rexach, a maverick composer and writer who was an emblematic figure of San Juan's bohemian scene of the 40's and 50's. Rexach died in 1961, at the age of 39. Her songs have since become part or the Puerto Rican canon, but she remains mostly unknown outside of her native island. To paraphrase a certain presidential candidate, Dedication to Sylvia Rexach is an act of love by children of the Latin diaspora who feel a strong connection to their parents' heritage. $10 With DJ Sets by DJ CONAN and JIM THOMSON (Electric Cowbell) plus special guests.

Death of a King with Tavis Smiley - Kings Theatre
January 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

THE MAN YOU KNOW. THE STORY YOU DON'T. Best-selling author Tavis Smiley presents a live multi-media stage presentation of his NY Times Bestseller, Death of A King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Final Year. Commemorating the upcoming 50th anniversary of his death, this timely presentation will reveal a side of the iconic civil rights leader you've never known before. With Smiley serving as narrator and original compositions performed by jazz pianist Marcus Roberts, this joyful tribute tells the little-known story of King's final year. Against all the odds and with his popularity in deep decline, King had to summon the courage, conviction, commitment and character, to bring a message of peace, equality and justice to a bitterly divided nation. This stage presentation brings together elements of visual imagery and live music with eloquent prose, declaring the truth of the impact that one man's integrity and strong faith in humanity can have on the American people, and people across the globe– a truth as timely today as it was 50 years ago.

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
January 17, 2018 - New York City

Parsifal, Wagner's final opera, is a majestic work that reaches heavenly heights in its spiritually transcendent third act. Wagner was Bruckner's idol, and the sweeping breadth and tonal language of the older composer inspired much of his music. At the time of his death, Bruckner had only completed three movements of his Ninth Symphony, but what he left is compelling and deeply touching. His symphony ascends from a musical primordial haze to a finale that explores new harmonies and peace in its quiet closing benediction.

Tenth Intervention's Silent House: FANTASTIC PLANET with a Live Score! - Videology Bar & Cinema
January 18, 2018 - Brooklyn

Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director René Laloux's animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags' oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

What Is Our Deepest Desire?--2018! - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
January 20, 2018 - New York

This Dramatic Presentation features "Mind & Importance" In this exciting talk, with illustrations from Thackeray, Jane Austen, and the Duchess of Newcastle, Eli Siegel said: “If you are important because you feel that what’s real is important, that other people can be important, then your importance is good….The wrong thing about being important is that we deny importance elsewhere. We can be as important, if we want to, as the Rocky Mountains, as long as we don’t deny anybody else’s importance.” Do You Want to Manage or Be Affected? Reenactment of an Aesthetic Realism Lesson “Any pleasure we’re not proud of is that much less pleasure: Mr. Reynolds, do you want to be proud of how someone affects you?” —Eli Siegel And-- How Can We Be Composed?: Bruegel’s Hunters In the Snow By Nancy Huntting “In Bruegel’s winter scene, snow blankets everything, yet unlike the way I tried to smooth down reality, the snow intensifies the red brick of the houses and shapes of the figures, while at the same time it makes for unity and calm.”

What Makes Our Anger Right or Wrong; or What Can We Learn from the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King? - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
January 20, 2018 - New York

At school, in parks and playgrounds, on the street, even in their own home, children can be frightened and perplexed, not only about the anger they see around them, but also the anger they have. Aesthetic Realism, the education founded by the poet and critic Eli Siegel, explains this subject in a way that is tremendously kind as well as vital for everyone’s life. That is why parents will be happy to know about the Saturday, January 20th Learning to Like the World class for boys and girls ages 5-12. Boys and girls attending will begin to learn something important and new—that there are two kinds of anger--as teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy take up and illustrate these sentences by Mr. Siegel: “There is such a thing as good anger. In a good anger we are fighting for the beauty of the world….But there is also an anger which comes from thinking too much of ourselves; an anger which comes from conceit….It is hard being angry in the right way. When we are not angry in the right way, something in us knows we are wrong, and we don’t like ourselves.” Children will learn about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., including the 1963 Children’s Crusade. They’ll see how b... (read more)

Since their emergence more than 25 years ago, the Grammy-winning Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music by making aesthetically, politically and musically enveloping recordings, inspiring future generations, creating a large body of work that is enduring, and helping to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. While their music is rooted in the klezmer genre, it is not a strictly traditional variety of it and they are, without a doubt, the most successful proponents of klezmer music in the world. The Klezmatics’ music is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equ... (read more)

BACH Berlin Symphony in E-flat major H. 654, Wq. 179 MOZART Symphony No. 29 in A major Georg Philipp Telemann’s dancing concerto grosso sets the stage for Matthew Greenbaum’s similarly light-footed concertino for oboe, a work—in both title and substance—that reveals the composer’s deep affinity for Baroque music. Correspondingly, Mozart’s glowing, shockingly mature early symphony betrays a significant debt to transitional master C.P.E. Bach—of whom the former once proclaimed: “He is the father, we are the children.” Described as an “expressive, wonderful player” (SZ Magazine, Germany); “virtuoso and elegant” (Double Reed Magazine, Germany); and “outstanding” (The New York Times) — Roni Gal-Ed is a first prize winner at the International Lauschmann Oboe Competition in Mannheim, Germany, and a recipient of scholarships from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and from the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.

Janine Jansen, Violin Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
January 21, 2018 - New York City

Debussy takes flight for the last time, Grieg spices his sonata with Norwegian flavors, and Chausson creates a miniature concerto. Debussy was terminally ill when he composed his Violin Sonata, but the music's verve and light speak of happier times. The light in Grieg's Violin Sonata No. 2 is derived from Norwegian folk music and dance that animate its opening and closing movements. In Chausson's rarely performed masterpiece, passages for solo violin and piano alternate and combine with the string quartet, themes cycle from movement to movement, and melodies soar.

The Bobby Darin Story - 92Y
January 21, 2018 - New York

Self-Interned, 1942: Noguchi in Poston War Relocation Center - The Noguchi Museum
January 21, 2018 - Long Island City

February 19, 2017, marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the notorious wartime directive that authorized the internment of Japanese citizens and American citizens of Japanese heritage living in the Western United States. This exhibition explores Noguchi's extraordinary decision—despite being exempt from internment as a resident of New York—to enter the Poston War Relocation Center, in the Arizona desert, hoping to contribute something positive to this forcibly displaced community, to which he had never felt more connected. In Noguchi's words, "Thus I willfully became part of humanity uprooted." Curated by Noguchi Museum Senior Curator Dakin Hart, Self-Interned, 1942 brings together about two dozen works from the Museum's collection, dating from before, during, and after Noguchi's time at Poston, along with a substantial selection of archival documents. Together these evoke this harrowing moment in the history of American democracy, while revealing the impact that his experience at Poston had on Noguchi's art. The exhibition opens with a roughly chronological installation of about a dozen sculptures dating from 1941, the year before Noguchi entered the camp, to 1... (read more)

Fred Moten, poet and NYU professor, speaks the following week on James Baldwin’s A Letter from a Region in My Mind (January 14). Finally, The Reverend Phillip A.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

Eddie Martinez Studio Wall - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2018 - Soho

Eddie Martinez's drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor's office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez's drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs. In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a "drawing wall," wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist's incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center's forthcoming exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, will bring the drawing wall to the museum. The artist will paper the gallery with thousands of sketches that he will change throughout the exhibition's run. In addition, several large drawings and paintings will be hung on top of these sketches allowing viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez's practice.

Raha Raissnia Alluvius - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2018 - Soho

Anticipating an audience whose reading of drawing is informed by new media, Iranian-born artist Raha Raissnia sources her densely-composed charcoal works from her films, each a document of the artist's private life. Using drawing to recreate (and at times undo) moments from everyday life, Raissnia transfers images of friends, strangers, and intimate spaces between celluloid and paper until the original forms become unrecognizable. For her exhibition at The Drawing Center, Raissnia will create a series of film performances, in which photographs of drawings and 35mm film loops are constructed in a flickering, hybrid sequence before the audience. Raissnia will also present several series of works on paper, the belabored surface of each drawing stressing the immense psychological effort that goes into forming each image.

His confused violent passion and her simple unshakable devotion, form the combustible heart of this dark fairytale for grown-ups.

JOSEPHINE A Burlesque Cabaret Dream Play - SoHo Playhouse
Through February 11, 2018 - new york

JOSEPHINE, a burlesque cabaret dream play combines cabaret, theatre and dance to tell the story of the iconic Josephine Baker, the first African-American international superstar and one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th Century. Josephine shatters stereotypes of race, gender roles and sexuality in this intimate, charming and haunting cabaret with a twist. Born in St. Louis in 1906, Josephine Baker achieved only moderate success in the United States, but became an international superstar after moving to France in the early 20’s. She starred alongside white romantic leading men in films in the 30’s, had multiple interracial marriages and homosexual relationships, and performed in men’s clothing before the term “drag” existed in the lexicon. Her adopted country of France gave her the opportunity to live freely without the racial oppression of her home nation, though she never stopped yearning for acceptance in America.

San Marco Quartet - 5 Manhattan West
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

Video Installation by David Rokeby; San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazza. Curated by Pari Nadimi. ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems. In the last deca... (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.

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.

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through April 08, 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.

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)

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
