The 91st Annual Feast of San Gennaro - Little Italy
Through September 24, 2017 - New York

The beloved Feast of San Gennaro, which is celebrating its 91st anniversary this year, is an annual festival presented by Figli di San Gennaro (Children of San Gennaro), a not-for-profit community organization dedicated to keeping the spirit and faith of the early Italian immigrants alive. The Feast is New York City's largest and longest running festivals, and attracts more than one-million people from around the world each year, to take part in the religious processions, colorful parades, free musical entertainment, and a wide variety of authentic Italian cuisine. The first Feast in New York City took place on September 19, 1926 when newly arrived immigrants from Naples settled in what is now Little Italy in New York City, and decided to continue the tradition they had followed in Italy to celebrate the day in 305 A.D. when Saint Gennaro was martyred for the faith. Since then, the Feast has grown from a one-day street festival to a gala 11-day event. Chazz Palminteri will be this year's Grand Marshal, and Tony Danza will be this year's MC for the Meatball Contest. Following the meatball eating contest on Saturday, September 23, there will be a celebration honoring Dean Martin'... (read more)

Artist Talk with James Little - The Art Students League
September 19, 2017 - New York

James Little is a meticulous craftsman who creates his own colors with pure pigment and heated beeswax, and layers each hue multiple times in parallel bands on the canvas. This technique gives his paintings a formal intelligence, a depth of color and an exciting energy that is all their own. In his new paintings, color and structure are critical fixations that in Little's work complement his geometric pictorial style. The edges of his vertical bands are saturated with lucid color as they give way to other patterns – chevrons, rectangles and zigzag designs of varying widths. Little lives and works in New York City. He holds a BFA from the Memphis Academy of Art and an MFA from Syracuse University. Little has participated in numerous one-person and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. Free and open to the public

Cafe Muller - New York City Theatre
September 19, 2017 - Brooklyn

Internationally renowned contemporary dance company Tanztheater Wuppertal, under legendary German choreogrpapher Pina Bausch's direction, has stood at the forefront of expressionist dance-theater since its inception in 1976. Over three decades since its New York debut at BAM, the company returns to restage the original double bill as part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival. Set to the music of Henry Purcell, Cafe Muller was inspired by Bausch's childhood memories of watching her father work in his cafe in Germany during and post WWII. Alongside this dark, reflective and wildly beautiful piece, the company will perform Bausch's interpretation of Stravinsky's The Rite Of Spring, a frenzied carnival of passion, fear and desire.

Nysferatu, Symphony of a Century - a Film by Andrea Mastrovito - Istituto Italiano di Cultura New York
September 19, 2017 - New York

NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century by Andrea Mastrovito is a spectacular, hand-animated, silent film that combines music and community engagement to create a powerful and poignant statement about the horrors of the unknown and the inspiring search for liberty. NYsferatu is a rotoscope recreation of Friedrich W. Murnau's seminal 1922 film Nosferatu, itself an adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Each background scene has been entirely redrawn to set the film in present day New York City. Taking the first step in a three-year process, Mastrovito and a team of 12 artists drew each background three times to replicate the beautifully eerie flickering shutter effect of early cinema. The artist, whose installations have captivated viewers throughout Europe and New York, aimed to create a summary of our times, a kind of "everybody's biography" using cinema as a popular language. Turning the original film on its head, NYsferatu questions the classical interpretation of the vampire, seen here as the prototypical outsider, while it addresses the many obstacles encountered by immigrants who often escape war and hardships at home only to face challenges such as economic exploitation, discri...

Listening Party - The Venerable Jazz Banjo - Varis Leichtman Studio
September 19, 2017 - New York

When people hear the word "banjo," they typically associate it with bluegrass, folk and country music. However, it was the 4-string jazz banjo that defined the hot rhythm section sound of American pop music of the Roaring 20's and early 30's. Some of the major music stars of the early 20th century played the 4-string jazz banjo, the aristocratic cousin of the 5-string bluegrass/folk instrument. Jazz banjo was found in speakeasies, concert halls, vaudeville houses, and musical theater pits of the day. It remains an integral ingredient of America's traditional jazz sound, embraced by players and listeners alike in today's resurgent hot jazz scenes. In this evening's Listening Party, award-winning 4-string jazz banjoist/bandleader and American Banjo Hall Of Fame inductee Cynthia Sayer will discuss the banjo's eventful history, from its African slave origins to its venerable place in jazz. Along the way, she will demonstrate the instrument's broad range and influence in various musical genres, as well as pay tribute to some of America's historic 4-string banjo stars. Ms. Sayer's performance will be supported by Dennis Lichtman on clarinet, Mike Weatherly on string bass, and Lar... (read more)

Black Angels over Tuskegee - New York City Theatre
September 20, 2017 - New York

The Tuskegee Airmen were leading lights in the fight for integration and social equality. They were African American men brought together under the Army Air Corps program in the build up to WWII, a time when Jim Crow laws were still operating in many states. Their outstanding contribution to the war effort played a major role in the full integration of the American Armed Forces, and struck a blow for prejudice and discrimination everywhere. One of Off-Broadway's longest running shows, Black Angels Over Tuskegee tells their story with wit and heart, painting a realistic portrait of six men from the 99th Pursuit Squadron. It's a play that inspires and entertains in equal measure, and stands as a worthy tribute to its subjects. Black Angels is written and directed by Layron Gray, who also performs in the show.

Lunchtime Lecture Series 'ABC (Always be Composing)' With Ephraim Rubenstein - The Art Students League
September 20, 2017 - New York

"The four edges of your canvas are the first four lines of your composition"- Hans Hofmann Composition – the organization of shapes and rhythms on a flat surface – is one of the great tools we have in painting. Much touted 'rules' of composition seem so problematic, as they are always riddled with innumerable exceptions. More profitable, perhaps, are 'strategies' for thinking about composition. Ephraim Rubenstein has had eleven one-person exhibitions in New York, at Tibor de Nagy Gallery, Tatistcheff & Co. and most recently at George Billis Gallery in Chelsea. His work is represented in numerous public and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Mr. Rubenstein was Associate Professor of Art at the University of Richmond from 1987-1998, where he received the Distinguished Educator Award and the Outstanding Faculty Award from the Commonwealth of Virginia. He has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Maryland Institute College of Art and is currently on the faculty at Columbia University and the Art Students League of New York.

The Kennedy Administration - Club Groove NYC
September 20, 2017 - New York

ome lead vocalists are so captivating, you wonder who's more dazzled when they sing: the adoring fans, or the bandmates who count themselves as blessed as the crowd to be in the presence of such an engaging talent. Watch any live performance by theKennedy Administration, with this quartet's singular namesake at the microphone, and you'll see right away that the rapt audience for Kennedy includes the very skilled, well-traveled players on stage. Kennedy's joy is contagious.It's a testament to her abilities as a musician, and her irresistible presence, that Ondrej Pivec on keyboards, Dmitry Gorodetsky on bass and Nathaniel Townsley on drums were drawn to her and motivated to also help bring the original compositions of this emerging young singer-songwriter to life. Mind you, these guys do not impress easily. Kennedy's cabinet of three has more high-level, executive experience in jazz, r&b, hip-hop and pop than you'll encounter in bands boasting double the number of personnel or claiming twice as many years in music. With credits ranging from Stevie Wonder to Lauryn Hill, and a roster of acclaimed "musician's musicians" in between, the Kennedy Administration's instrumental trio has se... (read more)

Creating the Workforce of Tomorrow - Asia Society
September 21, 2017 - Upper East Side

This creates a gap in how we are educating the next generation and the skills they will need to be successful in a rapidly changing world, meaning that the skills we are preparing people for today will not be relevant by the time they graduate. Join the Global Business Coalition for Education and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society for a private dialogue focusing on the future workforce of Asia. Sarah Brown, Executive Chair of the Global Business Coalition for Education, will speak.

EILEEN MARKEY: THE ASSASSINATION OF SR. MAURA - Glucksman Ireland House NYU
September 21, 2017 - New York

Sr. Maura Clarke, MM was one of four American women, three of them nuns, assassinated in El Salvador on December 2, 1980. Their identification with a poor people's movement for land reform and human rights had put them in the cross-hairs of a government intent on eliminating dissent. Across two decades of service in Central America Maura came to support popular movements against dictatorial regimes first in Nicaragua and then in El Salvador. As a child growing up in Rockaway, NY in the 1930s and 40s Maura ingested her father's stories of the IRB, the Irish Revolution and the Civil War and her mother's tales of the discrimination and intimidation she faced growing up Catholic in Antrim. Maura drank in the songs of brave rebels and beloved martyrs. These shaped her ideas about freedom, liberation and rebellion, priming her understanding of the movements of which she was a part in Central America. Eileen Markey, author of A Radical Faith: The Assassination of Sr. Maura (Nation Books 2016) explores Maura's Irish inheritance and its impact on her work a world away.

The exhibition features about 15 works to show appreciation for those which have inspired Ishikawa’s creativity as an artist. He sheds light on the positiveness although there are numerous artists whose works intensely focus on the negative side of human nature. He believes that human nature is fundamentally good. One of the biggest features of Ishikawa’s works is frequent use of distinct lines. “I received an idea of using lines as minimal units in paintings.” Searching for abstract shapes, Ishikawa used to use a lot of vertical and horizontal lines which define fundamental matters. For this exhibition, he consciously avoided the use of straight lines but instead employed curving lines to express warmth. Ishikawa has exhibited widely in Japan including solo exhibitions at Ginza Gallery House and Bar Aoyama in Tokyo as well as group shows at ... (read more)

36 Bars - Museum of the Moving Image
September 24, 2017 - Astoria

2002. John Divola (b. 1949, Los Angeles. Lives and works in Los Angeles). 36 found 8x10-inch photographs, c. 1928–1933. Collection of Stéphane Samuel & Robert Rubin. In the 1980s, Los Angeles photographer John Divola began collecting photographs that were made during Hollywood productions and later discarded. The 36 photographs on exhibit here were found in a small poster shop behind a flower store on Sunset Boulevard. They had been retrieved from a dumpster by a long-time Warner Bros. employee. These incredibly detailed images, dating from circa 1928–1933 and made with 8x10 cameras, were made solely to provide records of movie sets for continuity during production. As found objects, their aesthetic beauty challenges the distinction between fine art photography and the craftsmanship of Hollywood technicians. These photographs also remind us of the power of movies to create ideas of how certain spaces should look and feel. Hollywood production designers and directors take an abstract concept—such as a bar—and realize it with great specificity. Indeed, Divola reminds us that specificity of visual detail is the defining characteristic of photography. —Chief Curator David Schwartz

Oh, and the book comes from Julian Fellowes, the writer of a "relatively unknown" TV show called Downtown Abbey. Nope, we've never heard of it either....

Phantom of the Opera - Majestic Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York,

With the distance of more than a decade - and a couple hundred new musicals - since my last visit, I found myself with a new appreciation for this beloved show's gothic theatricality. Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera is the stuff of Broadway legend. The Great White Way's longest-running show of all time, this Gothic epic has been enchanting New York audiences for over a quarter a century with its irresistible mix of romance and horror, backed by its iconic rock music score. Undoubtedly one of theatre's greatest spectacles, Phantom boasts exquisite costumes and set design, and of course, the magnificent chandelier that crashes onto the stage to close out the first Act. Originally opening on Broadway in 1988, the show won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has over the years starred some of musical theatres greatest names, such as Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman and Sierra Boggess. Among the many famous numbers in its score is the title track, 'All I Ask of You' and 'The Music of the Night'. For a night out at the theatre, you can't do better than the Phantom."

Cats - Neil Simon Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

It has been some four days since I saw the revival of Mr. Lloyd Webber's nigh-legendary musical "Cats," which opened on Sunday at the Neil Simon Theater. And it's been four days of persistent earworms." One of Broadway's previously longest running and most popular musicals makes a special return to New York at the Neil Simon Theatre. Ideal for the whole family, Cats is based on poet TS Eliot's 1939 book for older children, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. With spectacular costumes, dazzling dance moves, and some of the most memorable show tunes in musical theatre ('Memory', 'MaCavity', 'The Song of the Jellicles', just to name a few!), Cats will leave you in awe. And possibly suspicious of any cats you may pass on the way home after... With direction from Trevor Nunn, choreography from Andy Blankenbuehler after Gillian Lynne and sets and costumes from the iconic John Napier, this Andrew Lloyd Webber-scored show won seven Tony Awards on its first 18-year outing on the Great White Way. Since it closed in 2000, audiences have been wishing for a revival, and now its finally here!

Miss Saigon - Broadway Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Miss Saigon was, and is, a phenomenon, and this production, directed by Laurence Connor, is sensational in every way. It's been a long time coming, but the hit London-born musical Miss Saigon lights up Broadway once again, following a phenomenal run in the West End. Starring the new revival production are leads Alistair Brammer as Chris and North Carolina-born Eva Noblezada as Kim, who experience the heady love story amidst the last days of Saigon, complete with a revamped helicopter scene to take your breath away.

Hello, Dolly - Shubert Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

"Bright, brassy and all Bette! Ms. Midler works hard for her ovations, while making you feel that the pleasure is all hers. Emmy, Tony, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Bette Midler (Fiddler on the Roof, The First Wives Club) returns to the Broadway stage in one of the greatest musicals of all time - Hello, Dolly! Starring alongside David Hyde Pierce, Ms Midler leads the revival of Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart's glorious comedy as the redoubtable matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, in a Tony-winning performance. Bursting with golden age musical charm, Hello, Dolly! is an extravagant slice of entertainment, and includes countless classic Broadway showstoppers, such as 'It Only Takes A Moment' and 'Put On Your Sunday Clothes'. Don't miss your chance to see Ms Midler though - she leaves January 14, 2018! Based on Thornton Wilder's play The Matchmaker, the show debuted on Broadway in 1964, starring Carol Channing in the titular role. A storming success, it won an unprecedented 10 Tonys at that year's ceremony and was adapted for the big screen five years later, with a cast led by Barbra Streisand and a young Michael Crawford. This 2017 revival is directed by four time Tony w... (read more)

Aladdin - New Amsterdam Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Following in the footsteps of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, Aladdin is the latest Broadway spectacular from Disney. Packed with romance, adventure and the Genie's hilarious slapstick humor, this unforgettable show features all of the movies' Academy Award-winning music, including 'A Whole New World', 'Friend Like Me' and 'Arabian Nights', as well as some brand new numbers. A lushly costumed and vibrantly choreographed affair, Aladdin was nominated for five Tony Awards when it premiered on Broadway in 2014, picking up one win for James Monroe Iglehart's portrayal of the Genie. With direction from Tony winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), Aladdin is a sure fire hit for all ages, whether you've seen the movie or not!

Book of Mormon - Eugene O'Neill Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

In 2011, following a storming reception at its Denver premiere, the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, gifted the world with this outrageously funny Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon missionaries sent on to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Replete with 19 original, hilarious songs and plenty of eyebrow-raising lines (and peppered with more than a handful of expletives), The Book of Mormon isn't for the faint-hearted or easily offended, but has already won over a whole new generation of musical theatre fans. Just perhaps leave your pastor behind for this one.... The Book of Mormon has had awards heaped upon it, earning 13 Tony nominations in 2012 and going to win nine of them including Best New Musical. In the same year, it also won four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, and even a Grammy Award in 2012! This smash-hit musical was written in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q, and co-directed by Mr. Parker and three-time Tony nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone).

Dear Evan Hansen - Music Box Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Second Stage Theatre, this darkly comic musical lands on Broadway. The poignant and thought-provoking production has thus far received rave reviews from critics for its unexpectedly touching portrayal of misunderstood youth, young love and the search for acceptance, all wrapped up in a perfectly pitched contemporary pop score by the Tony nominated and Oscar winning composing duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who also wrote the songs for the movie La La Land. Dear Evan Hansen won six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Leading Actor for Ben Platt.

1984 - Hudson Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Even for audiences inclined to feel jaded about revisiting a story from a long-ago school reading list, this '1984' manages to pump new, discomforting life into the mother of all dystopias." George Orwell's scarily prescient masterpiece comes to Broadway, in a new stage adaptation by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. Creating a nightmarish vision of suppression, surveillance and the all-powerful 'Big Brother', 1984 is one of the landmark texts of the 20th Century. Its story centers on civil servant Winston Smith, who decides to fight back against a totalitarian government which seeks to strip away every one of his liberties. Tony nominee Tom Sturridge (Orphan) stars as Winston, and the cast also includes Tony winner Reed Birney (The Humans) and Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde, who is making her Broadway debut. Transferring from the UK, where it has had four acclaimed runs, this new 1984 is a startlingly staged production, employing projections of live video feeds from cameras on stage and a set that is wholly transformed over the run time. It also incorporates the book's appendix into the show, meaning the action is framed by a book club in 2050, who are discussing the veracit... (read more)

Come from Away - Gerald Schoenfeld Theater
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Come From Away is an uplifting new musical that celebrates human compassion in the face of terrible circumstances. Penned by Canadian husband and wife team Irene Snakoff and David Hein, Come From Away is set in the remote town of Gander in Newfoundland, which found itself playing host to the passengers of 38 planes that were forced to land on 9/11. Thoroughly researched and based on interviews with residents and passengers, the show explores how this tiny community opened its hearts and homes to their unexpected guests. Come From Away debuted at San Diego's La Jolla Playhouse in 2015, before moving onto Seattle's Rep Theatre, where it broke box office records and was extended due to popular demand. This Broadway production is up for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical.

Through September 30, 2017 - New York

In & of Itself - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

"Derek isn't just raising the bar, he's moving the whole stadium. He's changing the game, and it's exhilarating to watch." After the big scale illusions of David Copperfield, and the intimate street magic of David Blaine, the next step in the evolution of magic arrives at the Daryl Roth Theatre. In and Off Itself is the latest show from magician Derek DelGaudio, whose last Off-Broadway show Nothing to Hide grossed $1 million in 2013. This show is a wholly original blend of illusion and storytelling, a series of interconnected stories woven together with magic tricks that don't just aim for a 'wow' moment, but seep into your brain and alter your perception of reality itself. In & and Off Itself premiered at the Geffen Playhouse last year, where it was extended five times due to extraordinary demand. This Off-Broadway production is directed by Emmy winner Frank Oz (The Muppets) and produced by Emmy and Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris.

The Terms of My Surrender - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

The left-wing polemicist, film maker, writer and agent provocateur is headed to Broadway for his first-ever stage show that he has written and will be starring in. It will be helmed by Spring Awakening's Tony-winning director Michael Mayer. Billed as "taking aim at Trump" by the New York Times, the show will be part stand-up, part play, part angry rant, and is set to raise the hackles of plenty a No. 45 supporter. A limited engagement of just 12 weeks starting in July, Moore will perform his one-man show eight times a week, in what will be a headline-stealing engagement, and one that is guaranteed to spark more than a few angry early morning Tweets from the White House...

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Step into a candy wonderland with this spectacular adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic. Follow young Charlie Bucket inside Willy Wonka's world famous Chocolate Factory, and discover that its wonders go far beyond your wildest dreams!

It also garnered two Olivier Awards for its lush costumes and creative lighting design. Taking on the iconic role of Willy Wonka in this production is two-time Tony Award winner Christian Borle, last seen on Broadway in Something Rotten!

Chicago - the Musical - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

An intoxicating mix of murder, sex and razzle dazzle, Chicago is Broadway at its most iconic. A winking satire of celebrity culture, it's the tale of two beautiful criminals in the Roaring Twenties who plan to get away with murder by putting on one hell of a show. Known for its slinky Bob Fosse choreography, lacey costumes and finger-clicking score, Chicago will show you a good time. Debuting on Broadway in 1975, Chicago was initially overshadowed by the year's other big musical, A Chorus Line, but is now firmly established as one of the Great White Way's most instantly recognisable shows. It's Broadway's longest-running ever American musical, and was turned into an Oscar winning movie in 2002, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere.

The Suitcase Under the Bed - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Teresa Deevy is a name that should be synonymous with the great Irish literary tradition. After she lost her hearing as a young woman, the dramatist turned to the pen, producing plays that were quietly revolutionary in their forward thinking approach to feminism and women's roles in her restrictive Catholic society. Yet after her initial success in the 30s, her plays were inexplicably dropped by her patron theater, and so her rightful legacy faded over the years. Labelled by NY Times theater critic Brent Brantley as a resurrectionist extraordinaire of forgotten plays", the Mint Theater, together with artistic director and driving force Jonathan Bank, is resurrecting Deevy's lost voice in an evening of four of her short plays this Summer.

A Clockwork Orange - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

A blistering adaptation of Anthony Burgess' classic, A Clockwork Orange arrives Off-Broadway after an acclaimed run at London's Park Theatre. Directed by Alexandra Spencer-Jones, this all-male staging injects a homoerotic edge into Burgess' dystopic, ultra-violent world, and wraps the action around bludgeoning fight choreography and an eclectic soundtrack, featuring everything from Placebo to (of course) Beethoven. Jonno Davies (Shakespeare in Love) makes his New York stage debut in the lead role of Alex DeLarge, reprising his performances from the London run.

The Gazillion Bubble Show - New York City Theatre

Newsical the Musical - New York City Theatre
Through September 30, 2017 - New York

With songs and material continually updated to take advantage of the top news stories, composer-lyricist Drama Desk Nominee Rick Crom's topical musical comedy is an ever-evolving mockery of all the news that is fit to spoof - and then some.

Through September 30, 2017 - New York

Following the turbulent changes faced a moneyed Yorkshire family, this new Roundabout Theatre production examines destiny, fortune and hope for the future.

Late Antique Textiles and Modern Design - The Met
Through October 01, 2017 - New York

Artists and designers often look to the past to find inspiration for their own work. This exhibition—drawn entirely from The Met collection—compares foliate patterns and roundels that are found on textiles from the Late Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods in Egypt to similar motifs in postcards by the Wiener Werkstätte and on garments designed by Mariano Fortuny (1871–1949). Created in Egypt between about 200 and 600, the textiles on view include a child's dress; fragments from a sleeve, tunic, and blanket or cover; and other fragments whose original use is not known. Variations of the scrolling vines and stylized motifs that adorn these textiles can be seen on works created nearly 1500 years later. The renowned Spanish-born designer Mariano Fortuny was active in Venice, where he founded a textile workshop and commercial silk printing factory. His exquisite designs fuse the ancient and the modern, the local and the exotic. Three different Fortuny-designed silk coats from the first three decades of the 20th century are shown over the course of the exhibition. In cut and ornament, these items harken back to Late Antique historical sources. Founded in 1903 in reaction... (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)

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.

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - Lincoln Center
Through October 14, 2017 - New York

ilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. 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!

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.

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.

- 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.

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.

Max Ernst: Beyond Painting - MoMA PS1
Through January 01, 2018 - Long Island City

This exhibition surveys the career of the preeminent Dada and Surrealist artist Max Ernst (French and American, born Germany. 1891–1976), with particular emphasis on his ceaseless experimentation. Ernst began his pursuit of radical new techniques that went "beyond painting" to articulate the irrational and unexplainable in the wake of World War I, continuing through the advent and aftermath of World War II. Featuring approximately 100 works drawn from the Museum's collection, the exhibition includes paintings that challenged material and compositional conventions; collages and overpaintings utilizing found printed reproductions; frottages (rubbings); illustrated books and collage novels; sculptures of painted stone and bronze; and prints made using a range of techniques. Several major, multipart projects represent key moments in Ernst's long career, ranging from early Dada and Surrealist portfolios of the late 1910s and 1920s to his late masterpiece—a recent acquisition to MoMA's collection—65 Maximiliana, ou l'exercice illégale de l'astronomie (1964). This illustrated book comprises 34 aquatints complemented by imaginative typographic designs and a secret hieroglyphic script of th... (read more)

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)

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.

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.
