Judith Bernstein Cabinet of Horrors - The Drawing Center
Through February 04, 2017 - Soho

Judith Bernstein will present a new body of work, specifically commissioned by The Drawing Center, for her exhibition Cabinet of Horrors in the Main Gallery. Focusing on work made since Donald J. Trump was elected president in November 2016, the exhibition will include approximately fifteen new drawings, four large-scale paper panel murals, a series of drawn "executive orders" and "dollar bills" in vitrines, and a free political campaign pin designed by Bernstein. A selection of five Word Drawings including: Liberty, Justice, Equality, Evil, and Fear, made in 1995, will also be shown. Bernstein began engaging with social issues in her work during the 1960s, creating anti-Vietnam drawings, monumental phalluses, and artworks consisting entirely of her own signature. The present series of drawings use Trump's own insult-driven, childlike syntax and language to distill Bernstein's anger, disgust, and disapproval of the current administration and its policies. Through her new series of drawings, Bernstein transforms her critique into powerful graphic and text-based works.

In a similar spirit, the Rubin is offering a special American Sign Language tour, which delves into how sound goes beyond what we can hear with our ears. The tour is open to the public and free with museum admission. Please make sure to RSVP in order to guarantee a spot. The tour is led by Deaf Guide Maleni Chaitoo.

As directed by the innovative French director and sound artist Roland Auzet, in a new English translation by NYU's Judith Graves Miller, the action unfolds on the steps of the Kimmel Center's Grand Staircase as an intense transaction between conflicting desires for drugs, love, connection, and a sense of existence. In Auzet's production furtive exchanges are overheard by audience members equipped with headphones, allowing spectators to eavesdrop on the intimate, secretive, and transgressive negotiation of the deal. French composer, percussionist, and theater director Roland Auzet defines himself as a stage writer. An artist and performer with many interests and talents, Auzet received the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres from the French Ministry in 2007 for his remarkable body of work in contemporary music, circus, dance, opera, and theater.

Lonely Planet - New York City Theatre
Through October 08, 2017 - New York

Absurdity and poignancy intertwine in Stephen Dietz's quietly brilliant examination of the AIDs epidemic through the eyes of two gay men, Jody, a worldly yet introverted map store owner and his more outlandish friend Carl, whose penchant for chairs carries more meaning than meets the eye. As time goes on in the isolated store, it becomes apparent that Jody hasn't left it for very long time. As a result, his knowledge of what is happening to their community is scant. Carl, being his only link to the outside world, decides he must bear witness to what is happening and begins to place the chairs of their fallen friends in the shop. Reminding us that hiding away from the world and its problems can have devastating consequences, Lonely Planet is a beautifully simple, yet highly resonant work that still reverberates into today's climate.

M. Butterfly - New York City Theatre
Through October 08, 2017 - New York

Clive Owen (Old Times, The Knick) returns to Broadway in this revival of the celebrated play M. Butterfly. Based on an extraordinary true story, M. Butterfly details the affair between a French diplomat and Chinese opera singer that was revealed to be an elaborate honeypot operation by the Chinese secret service. M. Butterfly opens with the diplomat in prison and plays out as a series of flashbacks of the relationship, which are beautifully entwined with allusions to Madama Butterfly as a way of exploring the troubling power dynamics between an 'all-powerful' West and a 'submissive' East. Written by David Henry Hwang, M. Butterfly premiered on Broadway in 1988 and won three Tony Awards, including Best Play. Set against the backdrop of the Cultural Revolution, M. Butterfly is ripe for director Julie Taymor's renowned visual flair and sense of grandeur.

From daily bullying to segregated drinking fountains, Lily's quest seems hopeless until she meets Sky, a shy Square boy whose curiosity for her unique polkadot skin blooms into an unexpected pal-ship. Inspired by the events of The Little Rock 9, Polkadots serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts. Polkadots is recommended for ages 5 and up!

Natural Perfume Blending Workshop - Alchemologie
October 09, 2017 - Brooklyn

Smell is the most neglected of our senses yet it has an instantaneous power to penetrate our consciousness invoking memories and emotion. Odors are ethereal and elusive yet can strongly attract or repel. As a concerned consumer, you are choosing organic food, seeking out sustainable products and opting for eco-friendly packaging. But what about the fragrance you wear? That signature scent is likely composed of synthetic materials (as most commercial fragrances are), mass-produced, packaged and shipped around the world in the millions of units. Natural perfumery is a much different process that uses only essential oils and precious absolutes that are extracted from plants. Like fine wine, subtle differences can be found from the same plant from year to year depending on soil conditions and climate meaning that it is not an exact science but a creative alchemical process. In this sensory workshop we will examine the artisanal art of natural perfumery. Students will gain a basic understanding of the sense of smell, the history of perfume, the advent of synthetic ingredients and the return to naturals. Perfume ingredients and formulation will be explored and each participant will... (read more)

Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a subst... (read more)

Stuffed - New York City Theatre
Through October 10, 2017 - New York

Written by comedian Lisa Lampanelli, Stuffed is honest look at women's relation to food and body image. In a culture that celebrates excess, being overweight is nevertheless a touchy subject, and a huge cause of anxiety for many Americans. Set on a simple stage, dressed with a few pieces of furniture and a refrigerator in the background, it's a hilarious and poignant conversation between four different women who have very different attitudes to their own bodies. Together they tackle every food-related topic imaginable, from ridiculous diets to muffin tops. Stuffed debuted last year at Off-Broadway's Women's Project Theatre. Lisa Lampanelli will reprise her role as Lisa, while Jackson Gay returns to direct.

KOLARS Return To NYC On October 11th - The Knitting Factory
October 11, 2017 - New York

KOLARS will return to New York City for a show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on October 11th, with support from Fiona Silver and Coyote & Crow. KOLARS craft a full sound through minimal instrumentation: guitar and a tap-dancing drummer. As Rob Kolar sings and strums his rollicking guitar, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussive instrument, tap dancing out the hi-hat rhythm with her feet atop a bass drum while simultaneously playing a stand-up kit, using dance to transform rhythms into natural extensions of her movement. It’s quite the workout and undeniably mesmerizing to watch. KOLARS incorporate modern sonic production into their set almost as if they are part live band and part machine, featuring studio experimentation with high energy performance.

Volume 1 Brooklyn Presents: The Greatest 3-Minute Celebrity Stories - Housing Works
October 11, 2017 - New York

We live in an age of celebrity, where you can be famous for doing almost anything–and thus, the number of people qualifying as celebrities has increased dramatically. What that means about the world in which we live–and Andy Warhol's old adage about everyone being famous for 15 minutes–remains to be seen. However, the density of celebrities, particularly in New York, means that more and more people have stories of encountering the famous (or, perhaps, the infamous). And thus, we're happy to announce our next 3-Minute Stories event, focusing on unlikely encounters with celebrities.

Enhancing America's Reservoir of Goodwill in Southeast Asia - Asia Society New York
October 11, 2017 - New York,

2017 marks the 40th anniversary of U.S.-ASEAN relations, but the countries that make up the dynamic, stable, and increasingly wealthy ASEAN alliance share anxieties over the possibility of U.S. disengagement from the region. There is diminishing confidence in a sustained American commitment to ASEAN, even as both sides maintain strong economic ties — the U.S. is the largest source of investment for ASEAN, and ASEAN is the United States' fourth largest trading partner. This comes at a time when China's influence and activism in the region is growing. Join us for a discussion with Professor Kishore Mahbubani and Daniel Russel on how the U.S. — an architect and guarantor of the post-World War II global order — can restore its global standing by reversing the perception of disengagement from the Asia-Pacific region.

SHERLOCK JR. (1924) 45 Minutes We celebrate Buster Keaton's recent birthday, on October 4th, with a classic feature where Buster plays a movie-theatre projectionist (and an amateur detective) who is framed for theft and loses the woman he loves. When he projects a film that reflects his own situation, he finds a way to enter the screen, to become a part of the film-within-the-film, to try to solve both its mystery and his own dilemma, in a slapstick comedy that is also a meditation on the nature of cinema and dreams. Directed by Buster Keaton. Plus 2 short comedies: CONEY ISLAND (1917) 25 Minutes Shot on location in and around Luna Park in Brooklyn. Directed by, and starring, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle and co-starring Buster. THE PLAY HOUSE (1921) 23 Minutes Directed by Buster and Eddie Cline, and starring Buster.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

Tedeschi Trucks Band - New York City Theatre

These talented musicians are the perfect match, not only in their marriage, but each brings an electrifying energy to stage. Tedeschi, who knows a thing or two about guitar herself, could blow the roof off of any venue with her powerhouse pipes while Truck's slide solos have earned him the reputation as one of the best guitarists in the world. Expect upbeat, stomping blues numbers and rapturous applause.

Orchestra of St. Luke's - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
October 12, 2017 - New York City

The spirit of Bach—particularly his Mass in B Minor—informs the grand choral writing of Mozart's Mass in C Minor. The influence of the florid Italian operatic style is also evident in solo passages, gloriously so in the "Laudamus te," a coloratura mezzo-soprano showpiece, and in the tender soprano aria "Et incarnatus est." Beethoven took his own path, but his Symphony No. 1 honors Haydn's symphonic model with more adventurous harmonies—especially in its opening—and a more robust role for winds and brass.

Takács Quartet - Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall)
October 12, 2017 - New York

H. C. Robbins Landon, the famed Haydn scholar, called the composer's "Fifths" String Quartet "one of the most serious, learned, and intellectually formidable works he ever wrote." It is certainly erudite with an opening movement that's a marvel of austere beauty and compelling turbulence, but there is also cutting wit and a finale that nods to the Hungarian Gypsy traditional. If Haydn's quartet appeals to the mind, Mendelssohn's String Quintet No. 2 moves the heart with a rhapsodic opening movement and a wrenching, sorrow-drenched lament.

Fatal Sunday: George Washington, the Monmouth Campaign, and the Politics of Battle - Fraunces Tavern Museum
October 12, 2017 - New York

The Battle of Monmouth, fought on June 28, 1778, was a brutal tactical draw. George Washington's partisans spun a public relations victory that enabled the General to silence the army and political critics who had challenged his command the previous winter in the so-called Conway Cabal. Thus the battle was contested on two fronts- the military and political, both with grave results for Washington and the Revolution. *Fatal Sunday: George Washington, the Monmouth Campaign, and the Politics of Battle is a Fraunces Tavern Museum Book Award 2017 Honorable Mention.

Thomas Ostermeier (Schaubühne, Berlin) - The Segal Center
October 12, 2017 - New York

Join us for a conversation with Schaubühne Berlin's influential artistic director Thomas Ostermeier–one of the world's most thrilling and recognized German theatre-makers of today. With Marvin Carlson and Frank Hentschker. Ostermeier began his theatrical career in 1990 acting in Einar Schleef's Faust project at Berlin University of the Arts. He studied directing at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Art in Berlin and became the assistant of Manfred Karge. After staging the Russian symbolist Alexander Blok at the Ernst Busch Academy, Ostermeier was asked in 1996 to take over the Barracke of the Deutsches Theater in Berlin as the Artistic Director. Early on in his career Ostermeier rebelled against "decoration" and celebrity culture within theatre – embracing the "intimate and violent" psychological realism prevalent among young British playwrights like Sarah Kane and Mark Ravenhill, whose plays he directed next to the works of young emerging German dramatists, such as Marius von Mayenburg.

Bach-Beethoven-Barber & Fugues - Bloomingdale School of Music
October 13, 2017 - New York

Bloomingdale School of Music - Free Concert Series Bach, Beethoven, Barber, & Fugues One of the most exciting features of music for the piano is the combination of fugues with other compositional forms, the most notable being J.S. Bach’s preludes and fugues in The Well Tempered Clavier. By the early 19th century Beethoven began including fugues as final movements in his piano sonatas, a practice he continued and perfected throughout his life. The 20th century American composer Samuel Barber also included a fugue as the final statement in his celebrated “Piano Sonata” from 1949. This program illustrates the influence and treatment of fugue within a broader compositional spectrum by three masterful composers spanning 200 years. Monica Verona, piano*

Exhibition Punk Troubles : Northern Ireland - The American Irish Historical Society
Through October 13, 2017 - New York

The exhibition PUNK TROUBLES: NORTHERN IRELAND at the American Irish Historical Society curated by punk historian Toby Mott with a catalogue of the same title published by Dashwood Books designed by Jamie Andrew Reid, examines the subject of N.I. punk in the context of sectarianism. The arrival of Punk in Northern Ireland offered young people, Catholic and Protestant alike, a brief respite from three decades of devastating civil war. Set against a backdrop of car bombs, hunger strikes, security checks, murder and random acts of violence the N.I. punk scene became, fleetingly, a neutral space, a ceasefire of sorts where the young and suppressed regardless of their religous persuasion came together to create their own D.I.Y. culture encompassing Music, clothing, writing and importantly, an attitude. It was a collective of Catholic and Protestant working class youth who eschewed violence to embrace a creative way of life which provided an alternative to the grey and frightening setting of what was commonly referred to by one and all as, 'The Troubles'.

New Sounds Live - Brookfield Place
Through October 13, 2017 - Battery Park City

This New Sounds Live series, curated by WNYC's John Schaefer, offers a captivating installation, the world premiere of The Phonemophonic Alphabet Brass Band by sculptor and multimedia artist, Carol Szymanski, in addition to an eclectic range of musical performances from artists, composers, and traditional musicians. Presented in totality for the first time, The Phonemophonic Alphabet Brass Band consists of 26 brass sculptures forming a three-dimensional font, which have also been crafted to function as musical instruments. Each horn sculpture (or "phonemophone," as Szymanski calls them) produces a unique range of tones generated by its particular letter shape. Since each horn represents a letter, they can "spell out" written texts by the order in which they are sounded—translating linguistic messages into musical terms. By the same token, they allow for something conceived of as a purely musical sequence to be thought of instead as a sequence of letters, perhaps a code. The result is an abstraction of language that opens a new genre, exploring sound, language, and visual elements in a striking new synthesis.

Brahms, too, looks inward in his String Sextet in G Major with a five-note theme whose pitches spell the name of a lost love in an outpouring of uncommon beauty and wistful nostalgia, while Shostakovich mourns a lost friend with gripping music of uncompromising power and somber beauty in his String Quartet No. 11.

Souvenirs: New New York Icons - Storefront for Art and Architecture
October 14, 2017 - New York

As a contemporary form of commercialized nostalgia, souvenirs are the ultimate cliche in the representation of a city. Pocket-sized, acritical, and cheap, they populate tourist sites all over the world with a patina of innocence. Producing collective imaginaries made up of lines that follow the profiles of superlative sculptures, buildings, and stories, souvenirs have become the reference points that anchor a particular culture in time, representing (consciously or not) political, cultural, and social values. Souvenirs: New New York Icons, the second iteration of Storefront's model show, commissions 59+ objects that redefine New York's iconic imagery. Inspired by each of the city's Community Districts, more than 59 artists, architects, and designers have reimagined the referential images that constitute the global perception of the city, proposing new understandings of the urban experience. Challenging the symbols that have permeated the gift shop, Souvenirs presents critical approaches to the shifting and complex iconography of the city. The exhibition introduces new objects and, with them, new ways to relate to form, matter, affect, representation, and agency.

During its Off-Broadway run, the Band's Visit was named by many critics as their favorite musical of the season, and was named 'Best Musical' at the Lucille Lortel, Outer Critics Circle, and NY Drama Critics' Circle awards.

As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, inc... (read more)

Cajsa Von Zeipel - Company Gallery
October 15, 2017 - New York

The alpha state of mind is the first stage of sleep or hypnosis, when the mind is set at ease and begins to dream. In her great poem of dreaming, "Wildly Constant," Anne Carson compares ravens to water, calling them "wildly constant," which might be one way to describe the alpha state—as a fixed place of wilderness flapping with ideas, wherein memory and imagination combine in the early stages of a dream. The poem's title could describe a nightclub, too, but Carson turns instead to the staid image of a glacial library (Roni Horn's Library of Water in Stykkishólmur, Iceland), a place of still waters. She writes, as her speaker begins to drift off, CAJSA VON ZEIPEL (born 1983) studied at the Sta?delschule (Frankfurt) and the Royal Institute of Art (Stockholm). She has recently been shown at Mitchell Algus Gallery (New York), The Scandinavian Institute (New York), Artipelag (Stockholm), and Swedish Art Now (Stockholm). Recent solo exhibitions include Saturn Return at Andrehn-Schiptjenko Gallery (Stockholm), Ponytails at Company (New York), Zoo Collective—Cajsa von Zeipel vs Carl Milles at Millesga?rden (Stockholm), and Insulting the Archive at Arcadia Missa (London).

Through October 15, 2017 - New York

In Outside Paducah: The Wars at Home, written and performed by J. A.

A fifty year-old man works to rebuild his life as he wrestles with the memory of an idealistic son—a teenager turned Marine who came back from Iraq wounded, disillusioned, and broken. And at a bar in the rust-belt remnant of his hometown, a former soldier's midnight encounter brings the past and the present into an explosive, searing reality. About J.A.

Through October 15, 2017 - New York

M. Butterfly - New York City Theatre
Through October 15, 2017 - New York

Clive Owen (Old Times, The Knick) returns to Broadway in this revival of the celebrated play M. Butterfly. Based on an extraordinary true story, M. Butterfly details the affair between a French diplomat and Chinese opera singer that was revealed to be an elaborate honeypot operation by the Chinese secret service. M. Butterfly opens with the diplomat in prison and plays out as a series of flashbacks of the relationship, which are beautifully entwined with allusions to Madama Butterfly as a way of exploring the troubling power dynamics between an 'all-powerful' West and a 'submissive' East. Written by David Henry Hwang, M. Butterfly premiered on Broadway in 1988 and won three Tony Awards, including Best Play. Set against the backdrop of the Cultural Revolution, M. Butterfly is ripe for director Julie Taymor's renowned visual flair and sense of grandeur.

Corpi in Vertigine #2 places dance at the crossroads of art, theater and performance. Since 2010, Grazia Capri has been developing an original body of work focused on movement. Emotions take form in the body and in the space: the poetic expression of a body becomes a screen, and reflects a primordial intimacy. In modern society, we often find ourselves having to choose between who we really are and who we choose to show to the world. Our nature is stifled, hidden in our deepest depths, causing an existential vertigo, in which we are enveloped by a sense of emptiness and can no longer find our center. Corpi in Vertigine #2 (Bodies in Vertigo #2) is a poetic and intimate journey in search of the self, a forgotten identity. The performance creates a surreal and dreamlike atmosphere, a timeless dimension. It is a succession of images and moods where past, present and future chas... (read more)

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Pathways, an exhibition featuring the works of Enrico Ambrosio, Westby and Mercier, Lorena Becerra, Anita Birkenfeld, Hanneke Kempers, Nancy McLean, Iva Milanova, Frédérique Négrié, Alaleh Ostad, Elke Riedel, Rody, Svetlana Sintseva, and Bekir Smolski. Through a survey of the diverse oeuvres of the aforementioned thirteen artists, Pathways examines how art can blur the lines between fantasy and reality. For example, Enrico Ambrosio’s digital explosions of color and light are contrasted with Nancy Mclean’s dynamically textured, whimsical adaptations of everyday scenes and objects. Meanwhile, Alaleh Ostad reinterprets traditional landscape scenes by transforming them into dynamic, abstract compositions through energetic swirls of oil paint on canvas. The exhibition considers these motifs through a myriad of media, including paintings, sculpture, digital compositions, photography, and multimedia collages.

Together they tackle every food-related topic imaginable, from ridiculous diets to muffin tops. Stuffed debuted last year at Off-Broadway's Women's Project Theatre.

Meriem Bennani: Siham & Hafida - The Kitchen
Through October 21, 2017 - New York

Historically, chikha performers in Morocco have provided entertainment for important celebrations and, as significant, spread lyrics of resistance during the era of French colonization. Yet tensions have arisen as performers negotiate a globalized society propelled by personal technology. Extending Meriem Bennani's ecstatic depictions of female roles ascribed by culture, her new video offers an intimate view into the lives of Siham and Hafida, two women whose inter-generational conflicts regarding the chikha tradition reflect greater shifts in Moroccan culture of the past 50 years. Moreover, their opposition approaches point to uncanny parallels between the new presence of chikha performance on social media and the oral traditions of Aita, the musical genre of the chikha and its dances. Bennani captures the performance of femininity celebrated by social and religious mores, as well as the less constrained moments in which this performance can recede. Curated by Lumi Tan.

Washed Away | curated by Stephanie Young - Chashama
Through October 21, 2017 - New York

The destruction of our beaches due to global warming has reached alarming levels in recent years. Because of rapidly melting polar caps, sea levels have risen, causing bigger waves to erode the coastline. Beaches normally lose a few inches of coastline a year, but some areas deemed 'hot spots' have seen coastlines diminish by as much as 50 feet in a year. According to experts, one way to stop the erosion is by cutting back on greenhouse gas emissions. Other more reactive methods involve beach nourishment; the process of re-depositing sand from inland sources to save affected areas. Even more drastic measures have included the building of beach walls, which have long term effects that include displacement of natural beach formation and ruining nearby coastlines. Washed Away looks at both the natural and man-made effects of beach erosion, and man's reaction to it, introducing the larger concern of land being eroded away and its ultimate demise due to these effects.

Sophie Calle+Midnight Moment: Voir La Mer - Crossing The Line Festival
Through October 31, 2017 - New York

In Istanbul, a city surrounded by the sea, Sophie Calle met people who had never seen it. For Voir la mer, as Calle describes it, "I took them to the shore of the Black Sea. They came to the water's edge, separately, eyes lowered, closed, or masked. I was behind them. I asked them to look out to the sea and then to turn back towards me to show me these eyes that had just seen it for the first time." Magnified on Times Square's electronic billboards, five of these intimate video portraits silently reveal their emotional response to this evocative experience. Since the late 1970's, Sophie Calle—"France's foremost conceptual artist" (The New York Times)—has been making provocative and often controversial work that confronts issues in her personal life. She is well-known for her sleuth-like explorations of human relationships, which have led her to follow strangers, and find work as a hotel chambermaid. Calle's work has been shown at international venues including the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, MoMA (New York), the Guggenheim Museum (New York), The Tate Gallery (London), Crossing the Line Festival 2011, and recently a site-specific installation in Greenwood Cemetery (B...

Striking Somewhere - The Java Project
Through November 04, 2017 - Brooklyn

The Java Project is pleased to announce Striking Somewhere, a solo exhibition by Victoria Manganiello, which features new Woven Paintings and a collection of Flower Paintings, a series that has never been previously shown by the artist. About The Flower Paintings differ from the Woven Paintings in terms of material, yet also serve as a timeline. Rather than being hand-woven, the Flower Paintings are machine-woven cloth the artists treats with an ambiguous mix of natural floral dyes and accents of acrylic paint. The floral dyes are derived from seasonal flowers and the synthetic materials further indicate the passage of time, as they nod to technology and the artist’s evolution in her process. This is the first time both the Woven and Flower paintings are being shown together, and they provide an interesting juxtaposition in their material and creative differences. Manganiello is involved in every aspect of the production of her paintings from start to finish. Spinning the raw wool, cotton, or silk. Dyeing the yarn with natural or synthetic ingredients on hand, whether they be the avocado pits she has saved from her meals or a paint tube of Fiber Reactive Procion Dye PRST... (read more)

Dreams Of The Kings: A Jade Suit For Eternity - China Institute
Through November 12, 2017 - Upper East Side

In 201 BCE, the first emperor of the Han Dynasty knighted his younger brother as the first king of the Chu Kingdom, which was centered in Peng Cheng, today's Xuzhou, in northern Jiangsu Province. Ruling under the emperor's protection, and given special exemption from imperial taxes, elites in this Kingdom enjoyed a lavish lifestyle. Twelve generations of kings lived, died, and were buried in sumptuous tombs carved into the nearby rocky hills. Since the mid 20th Century, nearly hundred tombs were excavated, revealing contents that testify to the Chu kings' affluence, as well as their beliefs in immortality and the afterlife. One of the most stunning finds was an elaborate jade sarcophagi burial suit, assembled from thousands of pieces of jade, the precious stone adored by Chinese people since the Neolithic period as an auspicious material that could ensure immortality. This exhibition will feature the jade suit, and other tomb contents that highlight how these powerful and wealthy kings prepared for death and envisioned their afterlife to come.

Tsibi Geva: Jolt - Albertz Benda
Through November 18, 2017 - New York

Albertz Benda is pleased to present Tsibi Geva: Jolt, one of Israel's most critically acclaimed artists, on view from October 12 – November 18, 2017. Having shown in New York with Annina Nosei for the past two decades, Tsibi Geva: Jolt will be the artist's first solo exhibition at Albertz Benda, featuring a new body of work and selected pieces from his solo presentation in the Israeli Pavilion at the 2015 Venice Biennale. In his latest series of paintings, Geva addresses concepts such as migration, instability and disintegration from a sociopolitical perspective and within the medium of painting itself. The layers of paint on the canvas alternately reveal and obscure fragments of bodies, architectural structures, and natural elements. These layered compositions confront the physicality of the materials while reflecting personal and cultural discourses. Geva delves into his psyche through a process of spontaneous mark-making and expressive gesture in the spirit of- but not defined by- abstract expressionism while also channeling the atmosphere of his surroundings. In works such as Untitled, 2017, the rounded forms and flowing paint flirt with representation, evoking an a... (read more)

Souvenirs: New New York Icons - Storefront for Art and Architecture
Through November 18, 2017 - New York

As a contemporary form of commercialized nostalgia, souvenirs are the ultimate cliche in the representation of a city. Pocket-sized, acritical, and cheap, they populate tourist sites all over the world with a patina of innocence. Producing collective imaginaries made up of lines that follow the profiles of superlative sculptures, buildings, and stories, souvenirs have become the reference points that anchor a particular culture in time, representing (consciously or not) political, cultural, and social values. Souvenirs: New New York Icons, the second iteration of Storefront's model show, commissions 59+ objects that redefine New York's iconic imagery. Inspired by each of the city's Community Districts, more than 59 artists, architects, and designers have reimagined the referential images that constitute the global perception of the city, proposing new understandings of the urban experience.

- ICP Museum
Through November 19, 2017 - New York

How has the act of remembering—and forgetting—been transformed in the digital age? Photography's relationship with the concept of memory stretches its entire history and includes its every iteration. Only now has the distribution of photography exploded with newfound ubiquity, ushering in a paradigm shift that bears semblance to that of the Gutenberg press. Photography's various forms have converged onto a point of accessibility where what was once a luxury is now a presupposition. As the degrees of separation between people decrease, so do those between past, present, and future. To remember is to engage with all three, and to create is to make them tangible. The collective consciousness of humankind speaks a visual language, and photography is poised, now more than ever, to upend the very notion of what it means to create.

Draw Jam - The Drawing Center
Through November 19, 2017 - New York,

What the Body Can Do: Open Sessions 11, the final exhibition of the program's 2016–17 cycle, captures the movement and potential of individual bodies in collective action. The artists in this exhibition dissect spectacles of war, memorialize immigrant and refugee narratives, savor protest cinema and images produced by the paparazzi. The exhibition features artists, Danielle Dean, Olalekan Jeyifous, Jennifer May Reiland, Slinko, and H?ng-An Tr??ng. Dean's animations unravel speech; Jeyifous' images collapse surrealist aesthetics and the design troupe of architectural folly; telephone screens, mirrors, and the camera's eye are a window into Reiland's versions of biblical and mythological tales; bread figures embody uprising and rebellion in Slinko's large storyboard drawings; and Tr??ng's photos compose an archive of fragmented views of the Asian American activist movement in the United States.

My Shot: Portraits from Hamilton - United Photo Industries
Through November 22, 2017 - Brooklyn

I'm young, scrappy and hungry and I'm not throwing away my shot!" — Alexander Hamilton, The Musical HAMILTON is a cast of revolutionaries. Night after night, this band of young rebels raise their voices to the darkness in an inspiring uprising of song and spirit. They are at once our history and our future, inciting rebellion and leading the way to change. Like the revolutionaries who embraced Alexander Hamilton's vision for a new America, the remarkable actors in these photographs embraced Lin-Manuel Miranda's vision for a new American musical. In doing so, they upended expectations and made us see things differently. I captured their portraits using antique cameras and lenses. To bring a richness and timeless beauty to these images, I chose to print them in classic silver gelatin, still the gold standard for black and white printing. All in an effort to echo, in a small way, what 'Hamilton the Musical' so brilliantly achieves in enlivening our own history in a way that makes it so relevant and present for us today. This is a time when history is being made in ways that our forefathers could never have imagined. It celebrates and reverberates this history eight times ... (read more)

Art Of The Mountain: Through The Chinese Photographer's Lens - China Institute in America
Through December 02, 2017 - Manhattan

Mountains, in Chinese legends, are the pillars that hold up the sky. Mountains were seen as places that nurture life. Their veneration took the form of rituals, retreat from social society, and aesthetic appreciation through the art of their vast beauty – some of the many ways that nature played and continues to play a defining role in Chinese culture. The exhibition, consisting of three sections with over 70 photographs by more than 20 contemporary photographers, will present the geography, history, culture, life, and art that is associated with or derived from mountains. The Lofty Mountains: The Famous Mountains of China will introduce the geography, history, legends, and cultures that are associated with famous Chinese mountains; The Pure Sound of Landscape: The Mountains and Chinese Landscape Aesthetic will introduce the renowned Chinese landscape painting aesthetic and how it influenced contemporary photography; and The New Landscape Photography will showcase artists using photography and post-photographic visual effects to express their thoughts on the role of mountains in society.

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson - Grey Art Gallery, NYU
Through December 09, 2017 - New York

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson explores how Alfred Barr, the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) first director, and Philip Johnson, the curator of architecture, introduced modern design to North America. The exhibition’s story begins when Barr and Johnson traveled to Europe in the late 1920s and early 1930s and discovered that leading European architects—such as Le Corbusier, J. J. P. Oud, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe–were rejecting ornament in favor of a purity of form. Barr and Johnson dubbed this new architectural language “International Style.” Featuring more than 100 objects—including furniture, photographs, and industrial and graphic design—the exhibition traces the development of modern design from its origins at Bauhaus to Barr and Johnson’s radical experiments in their homes in New York City to MoMA’s nationally influential exhibition in the 1930s and beyond.

John Minihan: Beckett and His World - Irish Arts Center
Through December 15, 2017 - New York

Walter Asmus directed Waiting for Godot and worked with Samuel Beckett in Berlin in the 1970s, author Edna O'Brien and publisher John Calder made up his circle in London, and actor Lisa Dwan gave life to Not I as never before. These are some of the luminaries who made up a world of Beckett, both during his life, and after his passing. John Minihan captures their essence in black and white portraiture, including his iconic images of Beckett himself. In his artist talk "Beckett and the Wake," John remembers spending time with a playwright who was often a reluctant subject and rarely posed. John Minihan photographed volumes I and II of IAC's cultural exhibition To Love Two Countries, a celebration of the men and women who immigrated to the United States in the early half of the twentieth century. Culture Night is an annual public event in Ireland that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organizations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. This year we join by opening our gallery doors for a daytime opportunity to view Beckett and His World.

Mummies - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

For thousands of years, peoples around the world practiced mummification as a way of preserving and honoring their dead. Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. In Mummies, ancient remains from the Nile Valley of Africa and the Andes Mountains of South America will be on view, allowing visitors to connect with cultures from the distant past. Mummification, a more widespread practice than most think, was used not only for royal Egyptians but also for common people and even animals. The process was employed by cultures around the world. In the Chancay culture of Peru, mummifying deceased family members meant relatives could keep connected with their loved ones; some families even brought mummy bundles to festivals. Egyptians, on the other hand, created mummies to help individuals enter the afterlife, often encasing the mummies in elaborately painted sarcophagi. At Mummies, interactive touch tables let visitors virtually "unravel" or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within.... (read more)

Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasure Bindings - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Treasure bindings—book covers encrusted with gold, silver, and gemstones—were a luxury in the Middle Ages. Few survive, and some of the finest examples are in the Morgan's distinguished collection. Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasure Bindings presents these masterpieces in context for the first time. The treasure bindings on view include star sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, pearls, and garnets, alongside illuminated manuscripts and printed books that depict two-dimensional representations of these precious materials. Among the exhibition highlights will be the ninth-century Lindau Gospels, one of the two finest Carolingian jeweled bindings in the world, and the thirteenth-century Berthold Sacramentary, the most luxurious German manuscript of its time. In these and other examples, we learn that the application of gemstones and precious metals served to venerate the texts inside and embellish church services, as well as reflect the status and wealth of the patrons who commissioned them. Images of "imagined" gems are also featured on the pages of manuscripts and printed books presented, including three examples of Venetian books, hand-painted by Girolamo da Cremona. The artis...

War and Pieced: the Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics - American Folk Art Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York, in collaboration with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, University of Lincoln–Nebraska. Cocurated by Dr. Annette Gero, international quilt historian, author, and collector, and Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum. War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Once termed "Soldiers'" or "Convalescent Quilts," the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century. The exhibition further relates these military quilts to an earlier technique of pictorial inlaid or intarsia quilts, made with felted wools during the Prussian and Napoleonic wars beginning in the mid-eighteenth century. The visual virtuosity of the quilts, often incorporating many thousands of pieces no larger than one-inch square, assumes a deeper emotional r... (read more)

Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo - Brooklyn Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - Prospect Heights

At particular moments in history, artists use their artwork to reveal social, cultural, and political complexities, responding to the times in which they live. Bringing together the work of three innovative chroniclers, Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo offers insight into the energy, empathy, and creativity with which these artists recounted and reimagined their realities. Together spanning four centuries and three continents, Spanish artist Francisco Goya (1746–1828), Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein (1898–1948), and contemporary American artist Robert Longo (born 1953) each witnessed a turbulent transition from one era to another and the profound repercussions of revolution, war, and civil unrest. Within a broad chronological framework, Proof traces the historical lineage of a visual language and artistic impulse. Featuring artwork almost exclusively in black and white, Proof showcases the artists' technical acuity and bold experimentation in three mediums: etching, film, and charcoal drawing. With a rare combination of selections, it invites viewers to find new meaning in artworks not normally encountered together. These works call to mind images—s... (read more)

After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History - Asia Society
Through January 21, 2018 - Upper East Side

After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History considers how contemporary art from societies in transition may be read as an expression of the ambiguous and sometimes contentious relationship between individual artistic practices and sociopolitical context. The exhibition explores the cultural repercussions of political ruptures through sculpture, photography, video, and mixed-media installations by seven contemporary artists and one artist group from three Southeast Asian countries—Indonesia, Myanmar, and Vietnam—whose lives and art practices have intersected with defining historical moments. Featured artists: FX Harsono, Htein Lin, Dinh Q. Lê, Nge Lay, Nguyen Thi Thanh Mai, The Propeller Group, Angki Purbandono, and Tintin Wulia.

Soulful Creatures: Animal Mummies in Ancient Egypt - Brooklyn Museum
Through January 21, 2018 - Prospect Heights

In the ancient burial ground at Saqqara, Egypt, one animal cemetery alone has yielded over four million individual ibis mummies. And the nearby dog cemetery contained over seven million mummies, with countless others found throughout Egypt. This unusual aspect of ancient Egyptian culture and religion—the mummification of animals—has remained largely a mystery. Soulful Creatures: Animal Mummies in Ancient Egypt explores the religious purpose of these mummies, how they were made, and why there are so many. Drawn from our renowned collection, the exhibition features choice examples from among the many millions of mummies of birds, cats, dogs, snakes, and other animals preserved from at least thirty-one different cemeteries throughout Egypt. Animals were central to the ancient Egyptian worldview. Most animals had connections to a particular deity. After death, mummified animals' souls could carry a message to a god. Yet not all animal mummies are what they seem. Scientific investigation of the mummies reveals that the corruption in the animal cemeteries that some contemporaneous texts allege was all too real. CT scans displayed in the exhibition uncover the empty wrappings, doubl... (read more)

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.

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)

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.
