Through August 06, 2017 - NEW YORK

"[Herzog & de Meuron] are always dedicated to enlarging experience where others would flatten it, and heightening the specifics of a place when there are pressures to erase them. They are champions of nuance." — Architectural Review "…it is the essence of Ai's activism: …work that unleashes the political power of art." — The Guardian (UK) Pritzker Prize-winning architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron and artist/activist Ai Weiwei explore the meaning of public space in our surveillance-laden world, referencing the story of Hansel and Gretel in which the children lose their way and feel a sense of menace in a space they know and trust. The artists take advantage of the vast openness of the Drill Hall, creating a 21st century public place in which the environment is disconcerting, the entrance is unexpected, and every movement is tracked and surveyed by drones and communicated to an unknown public. The work builds on the artists' shared practice as designers of form and investigation (the Beijing Olympic Stadium and "quite simply the best summer Serpentine Pavilion ever" according to Time Out London) and their deep interest in the public realm whether through activi...

Jewish Food Tour of New York - Lower East Side
August 12, 2017 - New York

At the turn of the 20th century, when the Lower East Side was the most densely populated place in the world, the vast majority of the district's 550,000 residents were Jewish. The Lower East Side was the first port of call for millions of Jews fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe. Over a century later, we set off to explore the ancestral gateway to America through the diverse cooking traditions of the Jewish diaspora, and through the food discover the history and cultural legacy of Jewish culture in New York. Did Jews become assimilated to New York, or the other way around: New York assimilated to the Jews! Comedian Lenny Bruce declared: “It doesn’t matter, even if you’re Catholic. If you live in New York, you’re Jewish. If you live in Butte, Montana, you are going to be goyish if you’re Jewish.” JEWISH FOOD TOUR OF NEW YORK Jewish Cuisine Bagels and lox, Knish, Matzo, Bialy, and much more!

It's Unreal! - Arts Brookfield
Through September 08, 2017 - Houston

Houston artist Adela Andea is known for transforming indoor spaces. Her installations create sensory experiences for her viewers. In Arts Brookfield's latest exhibition, It's Unreal!, Andea uses LED lights and various recycled plastic materials to provoke a dialogue about the interaction between people and new technologies. Of her "conversations in light," Andea says, "My work relies on human-made materials to create artificial environments that suggest 'beauty' assigned to the natural landscapes or environments. My installations insist on the visual transformation of inorganic into organic matter, and the blending of the organic with geometric." Curated by Sally Reynolds. ABOUT ADELA ANDEA Born in Romania in 1976, Adela Andea came to the United States in 1999. Her work was included in several exhibitions in California, Pennsylvania, New York and Texas. She graduated Valedictorian and Summa Cum Laude from the Painting program at the University of Houston.

A Supple Perimeter - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 -

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Arts Center at Governors Island hosts LMCC's summer exhibition, A Supple Perimeter, by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Free and open to the public, the exhibition will change over time, inviting audiences to both experience the evolution of the space in person and encounter a new installation upon multiple visits. A Supple Perimeter, Artist Statement Rasheed's research-based practice, which spans installation, photography, performance, publications, and printmaking, engages with figurative and literal language to interrogate how we read, write, consume, and distribute histories of Black folks. Invested in the wide permutations of Blackness, A Supple Perimeter explores the capacities of blackness and the quiet, blackness and the reticent, blackness and the private: an expansive blackness that allows for a Black subject with interiority and a strategic engagement with public(s). In A Supple Perimeter, Rasheed begins with her research into ecology, entropy and black traditions of experimental writing to construct an immersive ecosystem of existing and self-authored texts, unfinished videos, projections, ob...

Taking advantage of a space that would have typically advertised live entertainment and movies from 1939-1996 to U.S. military and their families living and working on Governors Island, Rasheed's new project Questions and the ongoing If/Then both aim to create a different kind of moment of pause for a viewer: to consider an existential question or to process the association of poignant, two-word alliterative phrases, all composed by the artist. On a biweekly cycle, the posters in the cases and the text in the marquee board will be changed by Rasheed. The marquee board will feature a new question concerning a contemporary context. The posters will feature alliterative word pairings, each of which contain a multiplicity of meanings. Each change will be documented via Instagram... (read more)

The project features three large sculptures of painted wood and prismatic glass on view in Madison Square Park from June 13, 2017 through October 8, 2017. The outdoor exhibition will comprise three exquisite sculptures in painted wood and prismatic glass: minimal, almost architectural forms that will create new spaces within the Park for the creation of music, dance, and poetry: a curvilinear, translucent blue sound wall for experimental music; a circular, reflective green floor for vanguard dance; and a vaulted-roofed luminous red and yellow pavilion for poetry. Each will refract the surrounding natural light, beckoning the passerby and regular Park visitor. The three structures will form open, stage-like platforms—in both the physical and metaphorical sense—for the collaborating choreographers, dancers, musicians, and poets who will be working next to them, on them, and under them in the summer of 2017.

This volunteer program is an exciting opportunity for community members to nurture their inner green thumb alongside their neighbors while improving public greenspace. Members of the HRP Green Team will work with our seasoned horticulture staff and participate in landscape enhancement activities including planting, weeding, pruning, mulching, trimming of ornamental grasses, addition of soil amendments, cleaning of vegetation beds, and other general gardening activities. Can't commit to all of the sessions? No problem! RSVP to any or all of the Green Team volunteer days. Locations and activities will vary each month, and volunteers will get to experience the Park from a whole new perspective throughout the seasons.
