Auto ventshade aeroskin hood deflector: Widebody ANY Challenger With This Kit—Or Just Win This One! #TENSEMA17

Anybody who has longed for the sexy curves of the new Dodge Demon or Widebody Hellcat will be happy to hear that AVS—a leading automotive accessory brand under the respected Lund umbrella—has just introduced a kit that can transform any 2015-up Challenger into a near Widebody/Demon look-alike. The resemblance to a Dodge Demon or Widebody Hellcat is uncanny, with AVS designer Billy Bibb doing a fantastic job amping up the design even further.  Demons and Widebody Hellcats after all have unique quarter panels and fenders with attachment points stamped into them. Those can’t be used on a regular Challenger body, so AVS must work with the stock sheetmetal. If that sounds like an opportunity to make it even sexier, you’d be right!

Toyota premio 2015 price in japan: ANALYSIS

The car is 2.4 inches longer, 0.6 inches wider and about an inch lower than its predecessor. It also has quite different styling at its front and rear ends compared to the standard Prius. In Japan and Europe, some versions have solar panels on the roof. These, Toyota claims, can increase the car’s range by up to 10%. The panels, which are laid on reinforced glass sheeting, prevent the Prius Prime from passing the USA’s rollover laws, so the solar roof isn’t available in that market. The car’s chief engineer told the media at the car’s home market preview in June 2016 that Toyota does not have the technology to laminate the photovoltaic cells in a resin which won’t shatter if the car rolls. However, TMC is working on a solution. Panasonic is the supplier of the solar roof.

Bmw f800r price uk: 2017 adventure sport bike of the year: BMW S1000XR

With a motor lifted out of the German firm’s RR superbike and retuned for more mid-range grunt, the 163bhp 999cc masterpiece gurgles on the overrun, pops and bangs through its gearbox blippers and goes like merry hell. It’s a four-cylinder cacophony of noise, aggression and power when you poke it with a stick, but relaxed and tractable when you’re just cruising. The 999cc inline four-cylinder motor is now Euro4-friendly and comes with an extra 5bhp. New handlebars are designed to reduce vibes (one of the few criticisms of the old bike) and a beefed-up subframe will handle an extra 10kg of pillion and luggage.

Bmw r1200gs review 2018: New 2018 BMW R1200GS Adventure first ride

The power delivery doesn’t overwhelm, allowing you to use everything available, while the handling, brakes, and electronic assistance are all as impressive as you could hope for. The Dynamic ESA, which automatically adjusts to the load on the bike and keeps it within its optimum operating window, is also superb. Not only does it manage to keep you comfortable and composed, but it also irons the road flat under your wheels. The only negative I can aim at it is the GSA’s propensity for becoming detatched from the ground. Over bigger bumps and sharp crests it gets airborn very easily – which is fine if you’re expecting it and riding aggressively, but can also catch you unawares.

Bmw k1200r sport: BMW K 1200 R Sport

The new K 1200 R Sport is the fourth model in the BMW’s most powerful model series. As the model designation already indicates, the new K 1200 R Sport is based on the  BMW K 1200 R .Perhaps the most essential feature of the new K 1200 R Sport is the semi-fairing mounted firmly to the frame and bearing the same headlight as on the R 1200 S. Integrated harmoniously into the overall design of the motorcycle, the semi-fairing retains a clear and free view of the impressive engine and running gear technology. The fairing not only emphasizes the sporting character of the big bike, but also enhances its wide range of riding opportunities and general use versus the K 1200 R.

Widowspeak – Rough Trade NYC October 13, 2017 – Brooklyn Widowspeak remain purveyors of mood. Whether painting an image of a basement apartment with blinds closed or conjuring the sweeping openness of a desert, they’re an outfit ever preoccupied with the influence of place and the passage of time on personal experience: the way vivid memories can feel like movies or dreams. On their newest album for Brooklyn’s Captured Tracks, Widowspeak use familiar aesthetics as a narrative device, a purposeful nostalgic backdrop for songs that ask, “How did we get here?” Sonically, they exist somewhere in the overlap between somber indie rock, dream pop, slow-core and their own invented genre, “cowboy grunge.” At the heart of the band, there is a palpable duality, a push and pull between the delicate and the deliberate: the contrast of lead singer-songwriter Molly Hamilton’s strikingly beautiful voice and poignant melodies with the terrestrial reality of being a four-piece rock band. These songs sound like the dark bars and rock clubs they were imagined for just as much as the bedrooms where they were written. Expect the Best sees Widowspeak finding their greatest balance between opposing forces: darkness and light, quiet and loud, tension and calm. Although Widowspeak’s last two records — Almanac (2013) and All Yours (2015) — were conceived as a duo with lead guitarist Robert Earl Thomas, Expect the Best finds them playing to the specific strengths of the current touring incarnation (James Jano on drums, Willy Muse on bass). The album, recorded by Kevin MacMahon (Swans, Real Estate), exhibits a marked increase in energy that reflects the band’s live show and the organic way it was created: by four people in a room together. The band collectively navigate dynamic changes with subtlety and restraint; the nine tracks here reach highs of wide-eyed lushness and plumb the depths of resigned melancholy. Their usual palette of dusty guitars and angular twang are still here front and center, but now with a bit more 90s homage, even if abstractly. The Pacific Northwest influences creep in throughout, as do varying flavors of New York’s legacy, the city the band still partially calls home. It’s their heaviest record to date, but never loses the sense of quiet intimacy that Widowspeak is known for.

Alt Nation Presents Atlas Genius – Gramercy Theatre October 13, 2017 – New York For brothers Keith and Michael Jeffery, home holds a certain kind of magic. The coastal Australian city where they grew up is more than the cradle of their youth – it was the soil for their dreams and the birthplace of their success. Australia was where they forged their breakout hit, “Trojans,” which earned them a gold record and took Atlas Genius from studio project to critically acclaimed international act. After a few months turned into two years on the road in support of their debut album, When It Was Now – after exploring distant towns in distant countries, pouring their souls out in theaters all over the world – home called. But back in Australia, the blank canvas the brothers faced reflected back two very different people from the ones who had crafted When It Was Now. In the time they had been away, they had created a new normal – built a new community, endured heartbreak, and seen the world. “All of a sudden we’re back in the same place but we’re totally different people. We just couldn’t stay if we wanted to challenge ourselves and take the next step.” Full of inspiration, Keith and Michael headed to Los Angeles to record new material in the city that had sparked undeniable creative energy for so many artists before them. Home, for now, would be here, and their experience within the bright Angeleno expanse juxtaposed against the darkness of the unknown, which quickly became the through-line that would tie together Atlas Genius’ second album, Inanimate Objects. Dj Earl, Slick Shoota, Suzi Analogue, Mel G – Sunnyvale October 13, 2017 – New York DJ Earl entered the musical world in 2005 by means of dance battles. He participates local parties in rollerskating rinks, building up his unfailing knowledge of this culture. In 2008 he meet DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad — a sudden trigger that led him to produce his own footwork tracks and join the Ghetto Teknitianz beside Spinn, Rashad, Traxman and many others soon thereafter. DJ Earl represents the new generation of Chicago’s sound, between jazz and funk tunes, devilish synthesizers, unstructured hip hop samples, heavy sub basses and mesmerizing snares. With releases on prestigious record labels such as Hyperdub & Planet Mu and appearances at Boiler Room & Fabric London there’s no telling what’s in store for the future.

With Gena Rowlands, Buck Henry, John Adames 35mm. 123 min. Tough-talking Gloria Swenson likes her solo life, but when her neighbor’s family is about to be rubbed out by some bad guys she winds up—not without protesting—having a small boy to protect. Gloria is streetwise enough to know she’d better get out of town with the kid. Cassavetes’s take on the fugitive-chase picture is shrewd and quirky, and you can’t help falling for Gloria and the kid.

Modest Mouse – The Capitol Theatre October 13, 2017 – Port Chester Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington and over the last decade has become the indie rock standard, and one of the few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing their longtime fans. The band released their first full-length album, This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About, on the Up label in 1996. With the release of their second album, The Lonesome Crowded West in 1997, the band’s status reached new heights with a legion of fans and critical acclaim. In 2000, Modest Mouse was signed to Epic Records and released their third album, The Moon & Antarctica. In 2004 came the release of their breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which included the hit “Float On” and has sold over 1.5 million copies and earned the band two Grammy nominations. Modest Mouse released We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, on March 20, 2007 and immediately entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1. Most recently the band released the EP No One’s First, And You’re Next and also reissued Moon & Antartica on vinyl. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue – Terminal 5 October 13, 2017 – New York Trombone Shorty’s new album opens with a dirge, but if you think the beloved bandleader, singer, songwriter and horn-blower born Troy Andrews came here to mourn, you got it all wrong. That bit of beautiful New Orleans soul—”Laveau Dirge No. 1,” named after one of the city’s most famous voodoo queens—shows off our host’s roots before Parking Lot Symphony branches out wildly, wonderfully, funkily across 12 diverse cuts. True to its title, this album contains multitudes of sound—from brass band blare and deep-groove funk, to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger—and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as Andrews says, “Music brings unity.” As for why it’s taken Andrews so long to follow 2013’s Raphael Saadiq-produced Say That to Say This, the man simply says, “I didn’t realize so much time passed. Some artists don’t work until they put a record out but I never stopped going.” Truly. In the last four years, Andrews banked his fifth White House gig; backed Macklemore and Madonna at the Grammys; played on albums by She & Him, Zac Brown, Dierks Bentley, and Mark Ronson; opened tours for Daryl Hall & John Oates and Red Hot Chili Peppers; appeared in Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways documentary series; voiced the iconic sound of the adult characters in The Peanuts Movie; inherited the esteemed annual fest-closing set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in the tradition of Crescent City greats like the Neville Brothers and Professor Longhair; and released Trombone Shorty, a children’s book about his life that was named a Caldecott Honor Book in 2016. Kaptive The Head Hey Anna – Mercury Lounge October 13, 2017 – New York Over the past several years, Atlanta three-piece the Head have quietly emerged as one of the city’s most promising and hardest working bands. The group’s 2015 EP, Millipedes, earned them national accolades and exposed the trio to wider audiences who took a shine to the band’s smart balance of pop hooks and indie rock grit. As a result, the Head spent much of 2016 on the road, criss-crossing the country in what would eventually amount to a massive 107 date tour. Based out of Brooklyn and New Jersey, Hey Anna is an indie-pop five-piece made up of sisters Erin, Anna and Katie Rauch-Sasseen, featuring Matthew Langner on drums and Jamie DiTringo on lead guitar. As a band, they seamlessly mingle the warmth of a seaside summer with the cacophonous urban landscape of NYC. With the blending of heavy guitars and whimsical vocals, NYLON describes them as, “the sunny, feel-good band we’ve been waiting all winter to find.” Phantoms – Mercury Lounge October 13, 2017 – New York Phantoms, comprised of Los Angeles-based natives Kyle Kaplan and Vinnie Pergola, are a dance act that does exactly that. Often tough to box in… the boys’ style lends itself to many elements of electronic and pop music; while still managing to always incorporate distinct synths and drum samples that have become synonymous with their “genre” of alternative electronic. Stemming from deep-seated roots in music and entertainment backgrounds, K&V put their entire beings into the project. They keep everyone continually dancing with an impressive live set of drum pads, synthesizers and midi controllers, while also keeping audiences engaged through their own style of humor on social media platforms. A full-time job for the band. Their fun and downright captivating personalities shine through all aspects of Phantoms.

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.

Paul Jones Sextet, Cd Release: Clean – Cornelia Street Cafe October 13, 2017 – New York Album Release show! Paul Jones’ second album Clean is out. The music for this album was created while attending the Musicians in Residence program at the Banff Creative Arts Centre in Alberta, Canada.

Guilty Pleasures Cabaret – The Duplex Cabaret Theatre October 13, 2017 – New York Hair flips and high kicks, lipstick and lace — NYC’s sexiest Dance Variety Show promises to entertain! Guilty Pleasures Cabaret’s sultry charm and feminine energy brings refreshing talent and artistry to the cabaret theater experience. They were founded in 2014 by six friends in New York City who wanted to produce a show that highlighted both their performing and creative talents. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born – thus earning their namesake “Guilty Pleasures Cabaret”. The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months they moved downtown where they were selling out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home. With a speak-easy feel, a hint of the roaring twenties, and a sprinkle of the swinging sixties – the show remains modern and sexy. The ladies, clad in fishnets, tap dance, contort, sing, and pirouette to the sounds of ‘Chicago’, ‘Great Gatsby’, ‘Cabaret’, Beyonce, and Nancy Sinatra, to name a few, playfully mixing the old with the new. The girls of the Guilty Pleasures Cabaret give their audience members sex appeal, spectacle, and variety – truly living up to the expectation of what a cabaret should entail.

Emily Saliers ‘Murmuration Nation’ Tour – (Le) Poisson Rouge October 13, 2017 – New York Thirty years into one of the most storied careers in popular music, Emily Saliers decided to record her debut album. “What’s a 53 year old woman doing making her first solo record?” muses Saliers, best known as one half of the iconic duo Indigo Girls. “What compels someone like me to follow this strong attachment to rhythmic music?” Murmuration Nation answers those questions both passionately and profoundly. In this “post-fact” era in which we find ourselves living today, Saliers’ fearless voice and insightful perspective feel more vital and relevant than ever before. The songs also reveal a new side of Saliers’ artistry, one that even her most ardent fans might not expect to hear. “It was so freeing to pursue the kind of music I truly wanted to make without regard to what I’d done before or who I’m expected to be,” says Saliers. I hope that this record can take people who think they know me already on a journey that’ll really surprise them.” While Indigo Girls is still very much alive and well, Murmuration Nation is Saliers’ first release under her own name, and it’s a surprising journey indeed. The record brims over with life and energy, blurring both musical and geographical boundaries as Saliers breaks down barriers with a bold and infectious spirit of adventure. Recorded with an all-star band—including bassist Tim LeFebvre (David Bowie, Tedeschi Trucks Band), keyboardist Rachel Eckroth (KT Tunstall), and drummers Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy) and Will Calhoun (Living Colour)—and featuring guest appearances from fellow luminaries like Lucy Wainwright Roche, Jonatha Brooke, and Jennifer Nettles, the album explores the kind of rhythmically centered, globally inspired music that’s always held a special place in Saliers’ heart. “I was born in a predominantly African American neighborhood in New Haven,” she explains. “Most of my friends growing up were black, so I was steeped in a musical culture that included James Brown, Otis Redding, and all the great R&B artists of the time. That’s the music that really stirred my spirit and made my body want to move. I found myself loving music from West Africa and South America for the same reasons. I think of it all as ‘body music.'” It was folk music, however, that first brought Saliers to national prominence. Indigo Girls released their breakout self-titled album in 1989, and in the ensuing decades, racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, took home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and earned the respect of high profile peers-turned-collaborators from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s Mountain Stage called the band “one of the finest folk duos of all time,” while Rolling Stone said they “personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendently its own,” and The New York Times raved that “gleeful profanities, righteous protest anthems and impeccable folk songwriting have carried this duo for thirty years.” Known for their outspoken political activism in addition to their brilliant songwriting, Indigo Girls became a household name and a fixture of American pop culture, but Saliers has never been one to rest on her laurels. Throughout her rise to stardom, she toyed with the idea of recording a solo album that combined her love of folk storytelling with her passion for the grooves and beats of that “body music” she’d always been so innately drawn to. When she met Juliard-trained violinist Lyris Hung, now a frequent Indigo Girls collaborator, Saliers found that her dream no longer seemed that far fetched. “Lyris allowed me to imagine a very broad musical world and expand what I was capable of doing on my own,” reflects Saliers. “I would write these snippets and send them to her, and she’d work on them in her home studio and send them back. I got so excited when I heard her productions. I realized she could help me make the hybrid record I always wanted, something with that R&B, rhythmic core along with organic instruments and my lyrics. I asked her, ‘Would you please produce the solo album I’ve been talking about for decades?'” The result is a record that defies easy categorization, with Saliers effortlessly mixing disparate musical traditions underneath poetic lyrics that take their cues from the natural world around us. Album opener “Spider,” for instance, brings together hints of heavy metal and Native American a capella music as Saliers weaves an arachno-centric metaphor for geopolitical trickery, while Spanish guitar gives way to orchestral strings and an electronic beat on the slithering “Serpent Love,” and the elegant “Fly” draws on avian inspiration for its message of community and cooperation. “‘Fly’ is kind of at the crux of the album,” Saliers explains. “A murmuration of birds is practically inexplicable to scientists, but it’s a very powerful thing to watch, and I see it happening in our country in an amazing way right now. From Black Lives Matter to the Women’s March to Standing Rock, there are all these grassroots movements starting to coalesce, and I take great comfort in the way people are instinctually moving together to fight injustice and hate.” In much the same way, Saliers’ songwriting and Hung’s production reach across divides to a broad and diverse audience. Though the musical setting may be different, Indigo Girls fans who have grown up with Saliers will recognize her trademark passion and perception, while younger listeners unfamiliar with her illustrious back catalog will discover in this record a voice of great clarity and understanding that speaks to these unique and troubling times. By drawing on her love of so many cultures and her insatiable appetite for great songwriting, regardless of genre or era, Saliers has crafted an album that is at once classic and modern, timeless and daring. On songs like “Train Inside” and “Long Haul,” she leans on her vintage country and folk roots, while “Poethearted” and “Slow Down Day Friend” showcase her love of the ukulele (which replaces the acoustic guitar she’s so traditionally identified with here), and “Match” and “Sad One” offer beautiful, bittersweet perspectives on the highs and lows of love. Though Saliers’ songwriting always comes from a deeply personal place, she isn’t afraid to look beyond herself and examine the big picture with her music, tackling America’s obsession with guns on “OK Corral,” the violent results of religious zealotry “I’m High I’m On High,” and our complicated relationship with southeast Asia on “Hello Vietnam.” “There are a lot of heavy, serious topics on this album,” says Saliers, “but there’s also a lot of whimsical groove and pop to it. That mix is important to me because it’s like the ebb-and-flow, peak-and-valley journey of life. I think this record is very reflective of my personality. I need fast and I need slow; I need grooves and I need a little bit of edge.” In the end, it all comes down to balance: artistically, emotionally, spiritually. The album showcases a side of Saliers that few knew she carried within her, but one that burns as bright today as it did when she was just a youngster discovering the wide world of music around her. Thirty years is a long wait for a debut, but with Murmuration Nation, it feels like Emily Saliers is right on time.

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’.

Dusk Chorus – Sounds of the Primary Forest – Rubin Museum October 13, 2017 – New York The act of listening can reveal more than just the sounds around you.

Through David’s eyes and ears we become immersed in the unique soundscapes of the primary forests of Yasunì, Ecuador, a haven for the world’s highest biodiversity, and learn about the region’s struggle for preservation. Climate change, extreme drought, run-ins with petroleum industry workers, and challenges using advanced recording technologies in the wild are just some of the hurdles David must face in order to achieve his goal: recording a pure and continuous 24-hour, 3-D soundscape that will preserve this acoustic heritage for future generations.

New Perspectives Tour – New Events Hello Museum October 13, 2017 – New York Leather, beads, hair, and paint. Air, light, scent, and white noise. The artists in “Trigger: Gender and a Tool and a Weapon” engage with a staggering range of media, from the tactile to the ephemeral and intangible. In this tour, we will look closely at a selection of works in which the chosen artistic medium(s) are integral to the viewer’s experience of the expression of identity. Sometimes the material may be significant because we as visitors bring with us associations related to certain materials, such as nail polish, neon lights, embroidered textiles, or lace, or because materials express personal or community-based histories—as with braided hair, leatherwork, and old photographs. Other times, a material’s significance arises because it is fundamentally immaterial (like sound, scent, or mist), asking us to rely on sensorial perception beyond our eyes and hands to experience the work. Together, we will discuss the role of materiality and immateriality within an exhibition that asks us to consider the innumerable forms that gender—in its categorization, fluidity, and undoing—can take. New Perspectives tours are led by the New Museum Teaching Fellow, an emerging scholar in art history or a related field. The topics of the tours are based on the Fellow’s ongoing research and change monthly, engaging participants in uniquely focused examinations of selected objects and installations. New Perspectives tours are free with Museum admission. Due to limited capacity, please preregister here and meet in the Lobby at the time of the tour. The current New Museum Teaching Fellow is Maggie Mustard, a PhD candidate in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, where she is completing her dissertation on postwar Japanese photography.

ABOUT BEN NEILL Composer/performer Ben Neill is the inventor of the mutantrumpet, a hybrid electro-acoustic instrument, and is widely recognized as a musical innovator through his recordings, performances and installations. He has been called “a creative composer and genius performer” (Time Out NY), “the mad scientist of dancefloor jazz” (CMJ), and “a musical powerhouse, a serious and individual talent” (Time Out London). Neill’s music blends influences from electronic, jazz, and contemporary classical music in a minimalist framework, blurring the lines between digital media and acoustic instrument performance. Neill began developing the mutantrumpet in the early 1980s with synthesizer inventor Robert Moog. In 1992, while in residency at the STEIM research and development lab for new instruments in Amsterdam, Neill made the mutantrumpet fully computer interactive. In 2008 he created a new version of his instrument at STEIM, and returned there in 2016-17 to design yet another version which will be completed in 2018. Neill has worked closely with many musical innovators including John Cage, La Monte Young, John Cale, Pauline Oliveros, Rhys Chatham, DJ Spooky, David Berhman, Mimi Goese, Page Hamilton, Nicolas Collins, and David Rothenberg. ITSOFOMO, his major collaborative piece with the late visual artist David Wojnarowicz, has been presented widely in venues such as The Tate Modern London, The Armand Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, The New Museum and PPOW Gallery. Neill is currently leading performances of La Monte Young’s The Second Dream with an international ensemble of 8 trumpet players, which has been presented in New York, Paris, Amsterdam, Huddersfield, Oslo, Krems, and Warsaw.

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.

Similarly, the living begin a journey to find peace in their loss. By Mexican tradition, death is a gate that can be opened as desired during a few days of the year. Those who have passed can return again through the sharing of joy, music, food and personal objects with their loved ones. In the other times, these objects often act as physical representations of spirits that can not be seen or touched. Created in Oaxaca, this performance explores attachment, memory and transition in times of loss and release. It moves to find acceptance and understanding in the joy and pain that life provokes. Performed in New York, the dance reflects what is shifted or lost through change of place and the context of cultural history. Proceeds from these events SUPPORT EARTHQUAKE RELIEF in the ISTHMUS OF OAXACA & MEXICO CITY as well as opportunity for CROSS – CULTURAL AND CREATIVE EXCHANGE between NEW YORK & OAXACA.

An audience favorite rapidly building a large New York following, John combines great originality, musicality and showmanship with clever wit and irreverent comedy, presenting a high-energy and entertaining evening of jazz, blues, funk and R&B. “Like the best Irish coffee, Minnock’s voice is smooth and bold, with a good dose of Bushmills to give it a smoldering kick…stellar chops…creative phrasing; impressive scatting” (Kevin Scott Hall, Bistro Awards). A classically trained musician, John’s vocalizing recalls the likes of Billy Eckstein, Lou Rawls, George Benson and B.B. King. He often branches out into jazz improvisation and scat singing, and brings a rich history of the music to every performance. His wide repertoire of song renditions spans classic artists like King, Ruth Brown and Bill Withers to contemporaries such as Sara Bareilles, Amy Winehouse and Sam Smith. “One of the best versions of ‘On Broadway’ I’ve ever heard.” (Bistro Awards). John leads a trio of accomplished musicians and keeps the energy moving throughout the evening. Before bringing his show to NYC, John performed weekly at Boston’s Encore Lounge, in one of the most successful jazz gigs in Boston. The show was chosen as a “Featured Event” by The Boston Globe several times during its run. Previously, John performed in the group “Feed the Meter” and in performances at Acton Jazz Café. Born and raised in Albany, he has a degree in music from Boston University. “…an impressive vocalist, obviously well trained and practiced in his chosen fields of study.” (Bistro Awards).

Based on a 2007 movie, the music and lyrics come from David Yazbek, whose previous Broadway credits include The Full Monty and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. 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.

Takács Quartet – Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall) October 14, 2017 – New York A deeply felt emotional expressivity binds these works from the Classical, Romantic, and 20th-century worlds. In Haydn’s quartet, the second-movement Largo is the work’s poetic soul—a profoundly beautiful meditation. 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. Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra – Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall October 14, 2017 – New York City Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra returns to Carnegie Hall to perform original works inspired by 5,000 years of Chinese civilization, as well as beloved Western classics.

In this prescient production, German director Thomas Ostermeier (An Enemy of the People, 2013 Next Wave) laces iambic pentameter with relentless drumming, bringing his trademark pop-cultural canniness to bear. Cult Shakespearean actor Lars Eidinger is cast as a kind of rock-star despot, growling his soliloquies into a microphone that swings overhead like the Sword of Damocles, as he alternately seduces and bombasts his nation into chaos.

Under the watchful gaze of an amphibian captor—performed by songstress Ofélie Crispin—they and four acrobatic performers tumble and climb through their dingy digs with astonishing control. Beautifully blurring the silly and the sublime, La grenouille avait raison (The Toad Knew) is an ode to familial love that could only have sprung from the delightfully perverse imagination of James Thierrée (Tabac Rouge, 2015 Next Wave; Raoul, 2010 Next Wave).

Public sails began on Saturday May 27, 2017. Spend an afternoon at the Museum! Pioneer tickets include free admission to the Museum’s historic ships and exhibitions on the day of your sail. Just bring the ticket to the Museum before or after your sail! The Museum now offers later hours allowing visitors to see the Museum’s exhibitions before or after their Pioneer sail.  The Museum’s historic ships and main exhibition space will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 11am-7pm from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.   Tickets for Pioneer are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/947114.   Pioneer is also available for charters. Bring friends, family, coworkers, and colleagues aboard for a private 2-hour sail on New York Harbor with striking views of the lower Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. Customized scheduling and catering recommendations are available. Contact charters@seany.org for details.     ABOUT THE SCHOONER PIONEER In the days before paved roads, small coastal schooners such as Pioneer were the delivery trucks of their era, carrying various cargoes between coastal communities: lumber and stone from the islands of Maine, brick on the Hudson River, and oyster shell on the Chesapeake Bay. Almost all American cargo sloops and schooners were wood, but because Pioneer was built in what was then this country’s center of iron shipbuilding, shewas launched in 1885 with a wrought-iron hull. She was the first of only two cargo sloops built of iron in this country, and is the only iron-hulled American merchant sailing vessel still in existence.    By 1930, when new owners moved her from the Delaware River to Massachusetts, she had been fitted with an engine, and was no longer using sails. Beginning in 1966 she was substantially rebuilt, turning her back into a sailing vessel once again and relaunching her in 1968. Since 1970 she has been a part of the South Street Seaport Museum’s collection, plying the waters of New York Harbor carrying adults and children instead of cargo in her current role as a piece of “living history.”    Today Visitors can board Pioneer for 2-hour day and evening cruises as she sails New York Harbor May through October. School classes and other groups can book exciting education programs and Pioneer is available for private charter throughout her season. You can join the crew too! Pioneer is an award-winning sail training vessel teaching traditional maritime skills, and the art of tall ship sailing to volunteers of all kinds. Pioneer offers an experience that is unique in New York. Not a replica, but rather an authentic 1885 sailing vessel, a trip aboard Pioneer provides more than just an enjoyable cruise on the harbor; visitors can take part in using a 132 year old museum object for exactly the purpose which it was built: sailing.    There is no equal to a sail on Pioneer-step aboard, grab a halyard, or sit back and feel the wind on your face and become a part of “Where New York Begins.”   ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America’s National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.” Creek Bros ($5) – The Creek and The Cave October 14, 2017 – Long Island Creek Bros takes your regular Saturday night and turns it into a comedy-filled frat party.

The Moth – True Stories Told Live – Tarrytown Music Hall October 14, 2017 – Tarrytown A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation An evening of storytelling from the producers of the popular Moth Podcast and Radio Hour. The Moth is true stories, told live and without notes. Since its founding, The Moth has presented more than fifteen thousand stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. The group celebrates the ability of stories to honor both the diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. It seeks to present recognized storytellers among established and emerging writers, performers and artists and to encourage storytelling among communities whose stories often go unheard. The Moth began on a back porch in small-town Georgia, where our founder—poet and best-selling novelist George Dawes Green— would spend sultry summer evenings swapping spellbinding tales with a small circle of friends. There was a hole in the screen, which let in moths that were attracted to the light, and the group started calling themselves “The Moths.” When he moved to New York City, George wanted to recreate the feeling of those nights in his adopted city. The first New York Moth event was heldin George’s living room. But word spread fast, and the events soon moved to cafes and clubs throughout the city—and soon to popular venues throughout the country and beyond.

Dion Flynn Works Well with Others – The PIT (Peoples Improv Theater) October 14, 2017 – New York DION FLYNN is best known as Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has over 60 appearances as 14 different characters on both The Tonight Show & Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Cited by Oprah aMagazine as “one of our favorite creative thinkers…” Dion’s solo improv has been described as: “Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn’s mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you’re flying.” — Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life “Dion Flynn’s solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy.” -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. “Dion’s solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it’s all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a couch and a piano. It’s a magic show where you get to see the magician astounded by his own illusions. Dion is a natural improviser, a born-performer, and it certainly shows in this impressive weekly solo improv piece. In a world of so many 8-person improv teams and shows, it is refreshing to see someone take the risk of going at it alone–and it is a special treat that it happens to be Dion Flynn.” – Chris Aurillio Electoral Dysfunction – The PIT Loft October 14, 2017 – New York Politics. Comedy. Yelling. Weekly! A night of political debate will inspire a comedy show so funny, fierce and daring that we’ll all be arrested without due process before the night is done!

King’s – Blue Note October 14, 2017 – New York Michael Franks occupied a uniquely popular niche in the world of soft jazz and pop music in the 1970s; he was one of those crossover artists who defied easy category on the radio (which made him ideal for FM radio of the period), and found an audience mostly among college students. He was born in La Jolla, CA in 1944, the son of Gerald and Betty Franks. His parents weren’t musicians, but they were music lovers and he was soon immersed in swing music and vocal jazz and pop. Franks’ early idols included such jazz-cum-pop legends as Nat King Cole and Peggy Lee, as well as composers and lyricists such as Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, and Johnny Mercer. His first instrument was the guitar, and he got the only formal instruction of his life — a total of six private lessons that came with his first instrument — at age 14. He was drawn to poetry as a high school student, especially the work of Theodore Roethke,, and began singing and playing folk-rock during this period. Franks majored in English and then Comparative Literature at UCLA and also embraced the music of Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, among others. He never studied music in college, however, and seemed on track toward teaching American literature as the ’60s drew to a close. It was during this period that he started writing songs, which led him to compose an anti-war musical entitled Anthems in E-flat, a piece that found life as a workshop production starring a young Mark Hammill. He also began to get some film work, including music for Monte Hellman’s Cockfighter and Jan Troell’s Zandy’s Bride (both 1974), the latter starring Liv Ullmann and Gene Hackman. He also saw some success as a songwriter courtesy of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, who recorded three of his songs, “White Boy Lost in the Blues,” “Jesus Gonna Make in Alright,” and “You Bring Out the Boogie in Me,” on their A&M Records album Sonny & Brownie (1973). Franks also played guitar, banjo, and mandolin on that album and the accompanying tour. That same year, he recorded his self-titled debut album for the short-lived Brut label (founded and owned by the men’s cologne company).

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! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, including No, No, Nanette, Irene, Half a Sixpence, and the burlesque musical Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, among many others. Now for the first time, Hilary Knight’s stage-struck life is the subject of a comprehensive exhibition that includes original artwork for posters; theatrical illustrations for Vanity Fair magazine (where Knight is a contributing editor); Knight’s most recent work — three-dimensional portraits in stage-like settings — and costume and set designs for performances and revues that reveal that for Hilary Knight, all the world is indeed a stage.

The Lighthouse & The Whaler – Mercury Lounge October 14, 2017 – New York The Lighthouse and the Whaler is a band from Cleveland, Ohio, though its name alludes to the waters off the coast of Massachusetts. Inspired by a theme from Moby Dick, the band’s name alone is enough to make underpaid Literature teachers beam with pride. It all started with two musicians – Aaron Smith and Michael LoPresti – who decided to collaborate in a field one sunny afternoon because that seemed nicer than playing in a basement. By the end of the day they had written their first song. They gave it a profound name: “The Field Song.” When it was selected for a Paste Sampler CD, Aaron and Michael decided to make a proper run at it. The Lighthouse and the Whaler released a four-song EP in 2008 and a self-titled/produced/released album in 2009. Two songs from that album – “White Days” and “Under Mountain, Under Ground” – found their way to TV and radio. With more fans to play for, The Lighthouse and the Whaler hit the road and toured across America. Somewhere between Boston and Seattle, the band picked up three new members – Matthew, Mark and Steve – thereafter, fulfilling the prophesy that was to be five young men stuffed in a forest green Chevy Venture, searching for open ears and loyal hearts. Here is what most band bios won’t tell you: Bicep (LIVE) – Music Hall of Williamsburg October 14, 2017 – Brooklyn JDH and Dave P, hailing from New York and Philadelphia respectively, are the duo behind the FIXED parties, which have been running for over eleven years.

Emilie Surtees – Club Groove NYC October 14, 2017 – New York For a singer with such powerful pipes, it’s something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a “listener.” Then again, maybe it’s her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Donna Summer, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan its amazing accuracy. Surtees not only replicates hit songs, power note for power note, but communicates the soul of each singer who originally recorded them — something that requires not only incredible vocals but also a profound appreciation of music. Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singers she honors in this concert at Club Groove in New York City.

This collection is filled with insights, wit, pithy observations, common sense and neighborly decency. This delightful and thought-provoking memoir proves that Brody has developed into a master of the short essay.” —Dan Rather, former CBS News anchor “A good man, Bob Brody is also an observant one. Nothing escapes his vision. Growing up with deaf parents, he learned to listen hard to the world around him, and this poignant memoir is the result.” —Phillip Lopate, author of Inside My Head and editor of The Art of the Personal Essay “In this winning memoir, Bob Brody wears his heart on both sleeves, along with a chip on both shoulders. He’s every inch a diehard New Yorker, equally tender and tough.

Carolines New Talent – Carolines on Broadway October 14, 2017 – NEW YORK Featuring New York’s best up and coming comics and Carolines regulars. Monday nights are when the country’s top up-and-coming comedians shine on Carolines New Talent showcase. For years, Carolines has been the country’s premier venue for discovering and developing the best new and emerging comedy talent. Carolines New Talent is “putting the spotlight on the stars of tomorrow, today! James Adomian – Carolines on Broadway Through October 14, 2017 – New York AMES ADOMIAN is a comedian and actor who is well known for his standup, characters and impressions. He can be seen in David Cross’ feature directorial debut HITS, and in forthcoming feature films LOVE AFTER LOVE and ADVENTURES OF DRUNKY. He just wrapped filming on the UNTITLED CHRISTOPHER MORRIS film, alongside Anna Kendrick. He has guest starred on Comedy Central’s @MIDNIGHT, THE MELTDOWN and DRUNK HISTORY, on Adult Swim’s CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL and on IFC’s COMEDY BANG! BANG! as a variety of guest characters.

BERNIE, a comedy debate act that includes a memorable guest appearance on Comedy Central, and two TV specials for Fusion, along with a live international tour in 2016 and a #1 Comedy Album (TRUMP VS BERNIE: LIVE IN BROOKLYN). Richard Lewis – Carolines on Broadway Through October 14, 2017 – New York Lewis has taken his lifelong therapy fodder and carved it into a commanding, compelling art form. His early career as a standup brought him to the top of his ranks. Over time and through a variety of mediums, he broadened his exposure and more and more came on board to appreciate his brilliantly warped world. The NY Times said, “This renowned comedian, often considered to be the heir to Lenny Bruce, is a master of long form storytelling who turns his endless neurotic energy into brilliant comedy.” Comedy Central has recognized Mr. Lewis as one of the top 50 stand-up comedians of all time and he was charted on GQ Magazine’s list of the ’20th Century’s Most Influential Humorists’. In December of 1989, Lewis achieved a very personal goal…he performed at Carnegie Hall to a standing room only audience. Still after all these years, Lewis remains addicted to performing before live audiences and is on a continuous “Tracks of My Fears” stand up tour. In live performance he is often compared to a jazz musician for his wild riffs that fly out into space but always find a way to float back into rhythm as they splatter recurring themes against a spiraling, lyrical backdrop. The Baltimore Jewish Times said, “Lewis is oftentimes compared to the late Lenny Bruce, the prolific, dissenting comedic voice of the ’60’s. And the two share many things in common– Judaism, an uncommon intelligence and irreverence for topics considered untouchable. Like Bruce, Mr. Lewis lays his soul bare on the stage, with fearlessness and many times, recklessness…” City Weekly of Salt Lake City concurred, “Nowhere will you find an entertainer so committed to his craft as comedian Richard Lewis…. His ability to keep people laughing at his self-loathing and dark views on every aspect of his life is what keeps him one of the greatest comedians of all time.” Anniversary Party – Private Picassos October 14, 2017 – Park Slope Celebrate the studio’s 2nd-year anniversary with free activities on the sidewalk, music, and art projects inside the studio.

Something Truly Monstrous is an early Christmas present to fans of Tinseltown’s Golden Age. … engaging, the play entertains.” – Arts in LA “Tabnick’s ear for spoken American speech of a certain lilt and skew is so spot-on, not a few of us are filled with envy, and we look forward to more.” – Craig Lucas “Truly inspired. Well-written… Very entertaining.” – nytheatre.com “Deft, a rich tapestry of themes… Thoughtful and enjoyable.” – American Theater Web “Succeeds marvelously… Tabnick’s excellent script even nails the occasionally bizarre and surreal narrative voice with which Dostoevsky tells his stories.” – nytheatre.com “Satire doesn’t get much better than An Idiot, and theatergoers shouldn’t miss it.” – Neighborhood NYC “Polished and thought-provoking.

New York Butoh dancer Vangeline conjures the ghosts of two passionate giants – Tatsumi Hijikata, founder of Butoh, and composer Ludwig van Beethoven in this hypnotic, electrifying and award-winning solo performance. 80 minutes with a 10 minute intermission. “Virtuosic solo performance that will make your skin crawl in the best way possible, conjuring the ghosts of tortured geniuses Beethoven and Tatsumi Hijikata and bringing Butoh into the 21st century with technical marvels and masterful skill. Vangeline is an artist who knows the darkness of Butoh well, and has the incredible skill to make that darkness dance.” – Theasy The word “eclipse”is derived from the ancient Greek verb ??????? (ekleíp?) which means “to abandon,” “to darken,” or “to cease to exist.” Butoh is likewise the “Dance of Darkness” where performers dance on the threshold of Life and Death Life. BUTOH BEETHOVEN: ECLIPSE is a solo piece that illuminates the darkness of Butoh with the addition of cutting edge lighting technologies such as the futuristic creations of European designer Tilen Sepi? and fiber optic costume by the French company Lumigram. After touring this show for the past three years and receiving four stars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, five stars at Copenhagen Stage Festival and critical acclaim in New York City, Vangeline shines a new light on Butoh and will transport audiences. This program is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. ABOUT VANGELINE THEATER Vangeline is an award-winning teacher, dancer, and choreographer specializing in the Japanese postwar avant-garde movement form Butoh. She is Artistic Director of The Vangeline Theater Inc., an all-female dance company that she founded in 2002. Firmly rooted in the tradition of Japanese Butoh, The Vangeline Theater is committed to providing programming, performances and classes that honor the legacy of the art form while moving it forward in the 21st century. Vangeline is the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance’s Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award recognizing excellence in the field of Community Action. Vangeline’s Butoh work has been commissioned by Atlantic Records’ Grammy award-winning artist SKRILLEX and Grammy Award winner Esperanza Spalding, and is featured in a major motion picture “The Letter” with James Franco and Winona Ryder, as well as on CNN’s Great Big Story. Since its inception in 2002, Vangeline Theater has fused the post-apocalyptic vision of Butoh (the Japanese dance form that developed after Hiroshima) with the near-cinematic aesthetic of 21st Century science-fiction noir. The mission of Vangeline Theater is to be at the forefront of the artistic movement to address environmental awareness providing artistic, socially responsible engagements in our community. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century, with a special emphasis on scientific research as it relates to Butoh.

Hybrid Narratives – The New School October 14, 2017 – New York The quickest path to insight is not always a straight accounting of the facts. The Imagine Science Film Festival often moves outside the traditional real/unreal categories formed by scientific documentary and science fiction, and this is doubly true in this hybrid year. This is not to minimize the crucial importance of scientific accuracy, but to consider that analyzing a complicated reality may require the complex approaches of docufiction. Here, we’ll look beyond simple true/false dichotomies and into fantastical data manifestations, obscure invented field studies, rethought histories, and ambiguous but illuminating narratives. Not confined to this program alone, these concepts will reappear throughout the festival. As a chance sub-theme, this program will also delve into a terrain of scientific study all-too-rarely explored through creative filmmaking: mineralogy and geology. Personified diamonds, the science fictional stratas that produce opals, and geometrically precise crystal structures all appear here as well. Imagine Science Film Market – Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang Building, The New School October 14, 2017 – New York Join Imagine Science Films for our first film market. To kickoff the weekend of the festival and ten years of IMAGINE we are bringing together science film distribution companies for a discussion about the industry. Each company will speak and provide a short presentation if they like on their work and programs useful to our filmmakers. We will have at least 2 discussion + Q & A sessions – one focused on the industry and another on how best to use the tools, materials and contacts presented in the fair day. How to maximize your portfolio and distribution network. Be prepared to speak one-on-one with distributors over refreshments and snacks. Bring your ideas, questions, notes, pen and paper and a lot of business cards. Encounters with the Natural World – New York Hall of Science October 14, 2017 – Flushing Searching sea turtles, avenging sea monsters, and philosophical frogs all meet in the latest year of our ongoing Science for Nanos series of science films for the whole family. This year the program focuses on our place in the changing biosphere of Earth, but we also couldn’t resist looking beyond, into particles, planets, and the scientific method in space. Note that while most of the films are in English, the final three are in French and Dutch, and will be shown with English subtitles. We apologize to our youngest viewers for the inconvenience. Analytical Landforms – The New School October 14, 2017 – New York A wide-angle travelogue across the planetary surface, Analytical Landforms continues forward from the mineral finish of the previous program to examine our physical reality through ecology, geology, climatology, and even microbiology. But is this the present anthropocene Earth, or have we unexpectedly traveled somewhere more exotic? Look closely enough at our planet, and it may become indistinguishable from science fiction. Or perhaps science fiction may, as is often the case, have something to tell us about our planet. Within these themes, the formats and topics undergo constant transformation: documentary footage of biosphere 2 is recomposed as a story of climatological apocalypse, strip mines reveal surprising medical and environmental possibilities, a science fiction writer finds her voice amid entirely terrestrial splendor, and an architectural essay breaks up into inhuman geometries. With a planet this varied, who needs outer space? That’s not to say that we didn’t have to add in one pure science fiction: an absurdist exo-planetary investigation conducted with endless invention and only the strangest practical effects planet Earth has to offer. (Im)Migrations – National Sawdust October 14, 2017 – Brooklyn Live-edited experimental documentary? Movement across species and national boundaries? The spiritual aspects of sound? All of these, and more, will intersect in an evening of ritual, cultural identity, and migration like nothing we’ve ever attempted in the first 10 years of the Imagine Science Film Festival. A truly hybrid program, the night will mix film, performance and music. Opening with a live performance by Paris-based artist Rachel Marks exploring the border-crossing migratory monarch butterfly, the program will then move into film for cutting-edge views inside the chrysalis, animal transformations, the migrations of human populations across the globe, and at last, an unusual bird-eyed view of Puerto Rico’s Arecibo observatory and our place in the larger cosmos. In the meantime, sub-themes of music and the ritual/spiritual elements of sound will prepare us for the feature performance of the second half of the night. Híbridos – National Sawdust October 14, 2017 – Brooklyn Live-edited experimental documentary? Movement across species and national boundaries? The spiritual aspects of sound? All of these, and more, will intersect in an evening of ritual, cultural identity, and migration like nothing we’ve ever attempted in the first 10 years of the Imagine Science Film Festival. A truly hybrid program, the night will mix film, performance and music. Vincent Moon and Priscilla Telmon, 2017, France / Brazil) Film performance The evening culminates by moving from the jungles of Puerto Rico, to the Brazillian rainforest for Vincent Moon and Priscilla Telmon’s multifaceted new project Híbridos. This trans-cinema project is an experimental-ethnographic study of current day spiritual cults in Brazil, mixing tradition and modernity. The in-depth research has driven the artists to collect audiovisual recordings over 60 different ceremonies all around the country for the past 3 years. From the afro-brazilian cults of Candomblé in Bahia to the new forms of Umbanda in Minas Gerais, from the biggest catholic manifestation in the world in Belém do Pará to new uses of entheogens in São Paulo, from indigenous ancestral rituals in Acre to the rise of the evangelical cults in Rio de Janeiro, the audiovisual collection showcases an incredible array of cultural diversity and constantly evolving ritualistic forms. The project is as well a research into the forms of cinema today, and how to ‘represent the invisible’. With a visual language combining long shots of intense musical sequences and a contemplative point of view of the world, the aim is to create an immersion for the viewer, as a personal journey towards the poetry of humankind and the mystic rhythms of syncretism, revealing the deepest expressions of the Brazilian soul.

FIELD MEETING Take 5: Thinking Projects – Asia Society October 14, 2017 – Upper East Side As a meticulously curated showcase of people, ideas, and research, FIELD MEETING transcends the conventions of educational symposia and creates direct access to a diverse group of practitioners. FIELD MEETING provides a rare opportunity for the public to witness the energetic presence and distinct perspectives of artists and thinkers. At this dynamic gathering, broad-spectrum subjects, culturally nuanced materials, concepts, and projects are tested and reflected upon collectively. Given the lack of artistic representation and historical contextualization of Asian contemporary art within the vast network of American art and academic institutions, FIELD MEETING facilitates meaningful exchange and encourages lasting relationships among artists, arts professionals, and organizations based in the United States and Asia that can lead to future collaborations. FIELD MEETING crosses over the disciplines of visual arts, art history, science, social history, architecture, mythology, film, music, folklore, and subculture. This year, in an attempt to deconstruct the term “project,” the presentations will reflect on unlikely pairings of topics such as superheroes and pageants, feminism as ecological consciousness, Lenin’s rendezvous with Jesus, telepathic animal communications, links between Chinese ink painting and climate change, cosmic speculations, the transformation of ancient symbols in the digital age, and much more.

HONK Pop-Up – Chashama October 14, 2017 – New York HONK NYC presents HONK POP-UP!

The band consists of 14 female musicians who play a repertoire of contemporary music in a variety of performance styles, from stage shows to the streets. The group believes strongly in empowering, and all the musicians share a common goal of highlighting and supporting all forms of feminist protest.

Infinite Blue – Brooklyn Museum October 14, 2017 – Brooklyn The works of art in Infinite Blue feature blue in all its variety—a fascinating strand of visual poetry running from ancient times to the present day. In cultures dating back thousands of years, blue—the color of the skies—has often been associated with the spiritual but also signifies power, status, and beauty. The spiritual and material aspects of blue combine to tell us stories about global history, cultural values, technological innovation, and international commerce. This cross-departmental survey includes objects from our holdings of Asian, African, Egyptian, American, Native American, and European art, among them paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, the decorative arts, illuminated manuscripts, printed books, and contemporary art. It will expand as subsequent chapters unfold, eventually almost filling our first floor. 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. 2017 Nyc Blocktoberfest – The Well October 14, 2017 – Brooklyn Join your New York City breweries for Oktoberfest in Williamsburg on October 14th.

Hybrid Narratives – Imagine Science Films October 14, 2017 – New York he quickest path to insight is not always a straight accounting of the facts. The Imagine Science Film Festival often moves outside the traditional real/unreal categories formed by scientific documentary and science fiction, and this is doubly true in this hybrid 10th year. This is not to minimize the crucial importance of scientific accuracy, but rather to consider that analyzing a complicated reality may require the complex approaches of docufiction. Here, we’ll look beyond simple true/false dichotomies and into fantastical data manifestations, obscure invented field studies, rethought histories, and ambiguous but illuminating narratives. Not confined to this program alone, these concepts will reappear throughout the festival. As a chance sub-theme, this program will also delve into a terrain of scientific study all-too-rarely explored through creative filmmaking: mineralogy and geology. Personified diamonds, the science fictional stratas that produce opals, and geometrically precise crystal structures all appear here as well. Imagine Science Film Market – Imagine Science Films October 14, 2017 – New York Film distributors and filmmakers provide the nuts and bolts of developing, shooting, and distributing interdisciplinary films that incorporate science providing rapid fire talks followed by Q&A and mingling.

Note that while most of the films are in English, the final three are in French and Dutch, and will be shown with English subtitles. We apologize to our youngest viewers for the inconvenience. – Imagine Science Films October 14, 2017 – Brooklyn Live-edited experimental documentary? Movement across species and national boundaries? The spiritual aspects of sound?

A truly hybrid program, the night will mix film, performance and music.

A Wife’s Insistence: What Makes It Right or Wrong? – Aesthetic Realism Foundation October 14, 2017 – New York The Understanding Marriage! class on Saturday, October 14 is “A Wife’s Insistence: What Makes It Right or Wrong?” Taught by Aesthetic Realism consultants Barbara Allen, Anne Fielding, and Meryl Nietsch-Cooperman, the class is open to all women. At the heart of what each woman will be learning is this statement by Eli Siegel, founder of Aesthetic Realism: “Marriage is a means for liking the world through a person. Too often, though, marriage is a contemptuous exclusion of the world.” And at the October 14th event, these great sentences from Mr. Siegel’s lecture Mind and Insistence will be discussed: “Insistence is what we all do. Like other aspects of mind, it can be good and bad. We have a possibility of insistence on having our way and to hell with everything else. We have also the insistence which is a good thing: on liking ourselves and understanding things. A wife can insist on an attitude that she has to her husband, and an attitude her husband should have to her. We need to understand how we can insist on something which is as necessary as a hole in the head.” In the class—which will include lively cultural instances—women will be seeing what Aesthetic Realism explains: the decisive thing in what makes insistence right or wrong is one’s purpose. Does our insistence arise from a desire to respect a person and the world, or to have contempt—feel superior as we manage them to have our own way? The exciting education in this class is a means for a marriage to become fresh, truly romantic, and kind!

Saudade – BAM Through October 15, 2017 – Brooklyn Joshua Beamish/MOVETHECOMPANY Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival There is sadness, and there is saudade, a nostalgic yearning for an elusive past—which is said to be the essence of the Portuguese soul. In this tribute to the most romantic of melancholias from Vancouver-bred, New York-based choreographer Joshua Beamish, six male dancers (with a range of credits that include Nederlands Dans Theater, Alvin Ailey, and Martha Graham) confront their existential incompleteness. Merging balletic poise with street-style body isolation, they conjure hollow intimacies in a series of ghostly solos, pas de deux, and group passages, paying homage to the absence that keeps us longing.

RELATED EVENTS Member Mingle: Saudade Wed, Oct 11 at 6:30pm 55th New York Film Festival – The Film Society of Lincoln Center Through October 15, 2017 – New York The 55th New York Film Festival’s Main Slate has been announced, featuring a selection of 25 films from around the globe. NYFF Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones said, “Every year, I’m asked about the themes in our Main Slate line-up, and every year I say the same thing: we choose the best films we see, and the common themes and preoccupations arise only after the fact. As I look at this slate of beautiful work, I could just make a series of simple observations: that these films come from all over the globe; that there is a nice balance of filmmakers known and unknown to many here in New York; that the overall balance between frankness and artistry holds me in awe; that there are two gala selections with the word ‘wonder’ in their titles; and that eight of the 25 films were directed by women.” This year’s Main Slate showcases films honored at Cannes including Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or–winner The Square; Robin Campillo’s BPM, awarded the Cannes Critics’ Prize; and Agnès Varda & JR’s Faces Places, which took home the Golden Eye. From Berlin, Aki Kaurismäki’s Silver Bear–winner The Other Side of Hope and Agnieszka Holland’s Alfred Bauer Prize–winner Spoor mark the returns of two New York Film Festival veterans, while Luca Guadagnino’s acclaimed Call Me by Your Name will be his NYFF debut. Also returning are Arnaud Desplechin, Noah Baumbach, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Claire Denis, Philippe Garrel, Lucrecia Martel, and Hong Sang-soo, who has two features in the lineup this year, while filmmakers new to the festival include Sean Baker, Greta Gerwig, Serge Bozon, Dee Rees, Chloé Zhao, Joachim Trier, Alain Gomis, and Valeska Grisebach. As previously announced, the NYFF55 Opening Night is Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying, Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck is Centerpiece, and Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel will close the festival.

Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age – The Morgan Library & Museum Through October 15, 2017 – New York The French refer to the seventeenth century as the Grand Siècle, or the Great Century. Under the rule of Louis XIII and Louis XIV, the period saw a dramatic increase in French political and military power, the maturation of French courtly life at Versailles, and an unparalleled flourishing of the arts. Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age explores the work of some of the most celebrated artists of the time. More than fifty drawings largely from the Morgan’s collections—including works by Claude Lorrain (1600–1682), Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665), Jacques Callot (1592–1635), and Charles Le Brun (1619–1690)—are on view in the exhibition. Together they demonstrate the era’s distinctive approach to composition and subject matter, informed by principles of rationalism, respect for the art of classical antiquity, and by a belief in a natural world governed by divine order. Poussin, Claude, and French Drawing in the Classical Age is made possible with generous support from the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust and the estate of Alex Gordon.

Adelheid Roosen & Nazmiye Oral+No Longer Without You – Crossing The Line Festival Through October 15, 2017 – New York You are invited to a public debate between a real-life mother and daughter about things never discussed in the family home. Havva Oral is a traditional Muslim immigrant living in the Netherlands; her westernized daughter Nazmiye Oral is a journalist and modern Dutch woman. In the intimate circle of a staged living room, they confront each other’s faith, sexuality, and values, with both love and anger. No Longer Without You is a searing, outrageous, and often hilarious rite of deep importance to our contemporary world. Adelheid|Zina (production), Adelheid Roosen (direction), Nazmiye Oral (performance) Dutch filmmaker, actress, and director Adelheid Roosen has been making theater about “unspeakable” topics since 1989. Her mission is to shift perspectives about what we see as “other” and whom we call strangers. Roosen uses theater to lay bare some of our most sensitive social issues, and to deepen public discussion.Dutch writer and actress Nazmiye Oral has an extensive theater career in the Netherlands and abroad. She is a co-founder, with Adelheid Roosen, of Zinaplatform, a theater company that travels to different neighborhoods throughout the Netherlands and stages performances based on the lives of locals in the community. Her collaborations with Roosen on the plays The Veiled Monologues and No Longer Without You have met with great success. Since its creation, No Longer Without You has toured extensively throughout the world. It was presented during the prestigious Holland Festival in 2015 where Nazmiye won the Audience Award for her performance. In 2016 she won a Golden Calf Award for her role in the film In Vrijheid (In Freedom).

Eddie Palmieri 80th Birthday Celebration – Blue Note Through October 15, 2017 – New York Known as one of the finest pianists of the past 50 years, Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. His playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, and McCoy Tyner, as well as his older brother Charlie Palmieri. Palmieri’s parents emigrated from Ponce, Puerto Rico to New York City in 1926. Born in Spanish Harlem and raised in the Bronx, Palmieri learned to play the piano at an early age, and at 13, he joined his uncle’s orchestra, playing timbales. Palmieri’s professional career as a pianist took off with various bands in the early 1950s, including Eddie Forrester’s, Johnny Segui’s, and the popular Tito Rodriguez Orchestra. In 1961, Palmieri formed his own band, La Perfecta, which featured an unconventional front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike. Palmieri disbanded La Perfecta in 1968 to pursue different musical endeavors, though he would return to the band’s music in the 2000s. Recognizing Palmieri as an American icon, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, DC, recorded two of Palmieri’s performances for its archives in 1988. Because of Palmieri’s proclivity for creating music in funk Latin style, Little Louie Vega invited him to record on “Nuyorican Soul” (1997), a release that became very popular in the house and underground music scenes. In 2009, the Library of Congress added Palmieri’s composition “Azucar Pa’ Ti” to the National Recording Registry, which at the time only included 300 compositions documenting all of recorded music history in the U.S. With his widely popular eight-and-a-half minute “Azucar Pa’ Ti” Palmieri changed the format of the recording industry, breaking the three-and-a-half minute barrier imposed by the recording industry.

Drawn from interviews with survivors, it is told from the point of view of some of the armed Palestinian fighters who found refuge in the church. Along with 200 civilians, they were given sanctuary by the church’s resident priests and nuns and spent 39 days there with dwindling food, water and medical supplies. While the world watched, the fighters grappled with survival, ideology, and the decision to continue the struggle to the end, or surrender. The Freedom Theatre, based in the West Bank refugee camp of Jenin, is dedicated to using culture and art as catalysts for social change. Through workshops, classes and professional theater productions, the company helps Palestinian adults, youth and women develop tools to deal with the hardships of daily life under occupation.

Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground.

A. Moad II, we watch the toll of war reverberate across three generations of Americans: A seven year-old boy struggles to make sense of the screaming in the night after his father returns from Afghanistan. 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. Moad II He is a former Air Force C-130 pilot with over 3000 flight hours and more than 100 combat sorties.

Junk – New York City Theatre Through October 15, 2017 – New York Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright behind Disgraced, turns his attention to Wall Street in new work Junk. This meticulously constructed financial thriller, which receives its New York premiere at the Beaumont, centers on an investment bank’s hostile takeover of a manufacturing firm, and the ruthless wunderkind who’s heading the deal. Set in the mid-eighties, it portrays the crucial moment in history when pure, unalloyed greed for money became the dominant driving force in America. The cast is led by Tony nominee Steven Pasquale (The Bridges of Madison County). Junk debuted in Los Angeles last year, where it was met with unanimous praise from the critics for its brisk pace and moral complexity. This Broadway production is directed by Doug Hughes. Lonely Planet – New York City Theatre Through October 15, 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 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. The Apple Tree Musical Revival – The Lion Theatre Through October 15, 2017 – New York In The Apple Tree Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick show us that women have been smarter than men from as far back as Eden when Adam says, “I remember when you invented fire”. In a barbaric kingdom a daughter gets around her father as if it were today’s White House by intoning – “Oh, Daddy”. In time present a star is created by TV but unlike certain men, our star – a woman – is “tired of being a cardboard figure”. Songs include “Here in Eden”; “What Makes Me Love Him”; “I’ve Got What You Want”; “Oh, To Be a Movie Star” and “Gorgeous”. Our Eve (et al) is Savannah Frazier, our Adam (et al) is Garen McRoberts, our Snake (et al) is Matthew LaBanca. Not only do the principals play several roles but so do the ensemble – Marc De La Concha; Elizabeth Flanagan; Alia Hodge; Colin Minamoto; and Wesley Tunison.

Corpi in Vertigine #2 | Grazia Capri – Chashama Through October 15, 2017 – New York Open Hours: Tuesday, October 10 to Saturday, October 14, 1 – 7 pm Installation video and reception from 1 – 5:30pm. Performance and talk from 6 – 7pm. Sunday, October 15, 12 – 6pm Installation video and reception from 12 – 4pm. Performance and talk from 5 – 6pm. Viewable through the window, 24/7. 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 chase each other, taking turns without a logical consequence. About the Artist Grazia Capri has presented her work at festivals, theaters and galleries across Europe and the United States. A list of selected venues: IDACO nyc – Italian DAnce COnnection, New York; Lipani Gallery at Fordham University, New York; Sans Limites Dance Festival, New York; Fertile Ground, New York; Clarence Mews, London.

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.

The exhibition considers these motifs through a myriad of media, including paintings, sculpture, digital compositions, photography, and multimedia collages. The innovative use of various materials and media by each of the artists in Pathways presents the viewer with the opportunity to overstep the boundary of the real into the ethereal.

These formational years, played an important role in the development of China’s imperial bureaucracy and the growth of Confucianism which have had a lasting impact on all of the dynasties that followed. “The Glories of the Han Dynasty” is a 5-week lecture series exploring the culture of the Han Dynasty through its history, literature, economy, politics, scholarship, and visual arts.

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.

NYU Skirball Presents the North American Premiere of The Freedom Theatre’s ‘The Siege’ – NYU Skirball Through October 22, 2017 – New York NYU Skirball will present the North American premiere of the Palestinian company The Freedom Theatre’s The Siege, running for 10 performances, October 12– 22, 2017. The Siege is based the 2002 occupation of Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, where more than 200 Palestinian fighters, civilians and Christian clergy sought sanctuary during an Israeli military action. The play is created and directed by Nabil Al-?Raee and Zoe Lafferty, and will be performed in Arabic with English subtitles. The Freedom Theatre, based in the West Bank refugee camp of Jenin, is dedicated to using culture and art as a catalyst for social change. Through workshops, classes and professional theater productions, The Freedom Theater helps Palestinian adults, youth and women develop tools to deal with the hardships of daily life under occupation. The North American premiere tour is produced by ArKtype / Thomas O. Kriegsmann. THE STORY OF THE SIEGE The Siege is drawn from the accounts of a group of men who, at the height of the second Intifada (Palestinian uprising), took refuge in Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, one of the world’s holiest sites. The production is built from interviews with these fighters and others who were trapped in the church as the Israeli army closed in with helicopters, tanks and snipers, and provides unique insights into the Palestinian armed resistance and struggle for equal rights. The siege lasted for 39 days, trapping over 200 Palestinian militants and local civilians, priests and nuns inside the church, with extremely limited food, water and electricity. Outside the church Israeli snipers remained on alert, paralyzing the center of Bethlehem and keeping 70,000 people under strict curfew. The complicated negotiations to end the conflict involved not only Israeli Prime Minister Arial Sharon and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, but representatives from the United States, the Vatican, the United Nations and the governments of Italy and Cyprus. Eight Palestinians were killed and 40 injured by Israeli snipers. After 39 days, a deal between the fighters and Israel was reached; the fighters would surrender and accept permanent exile. ABOUT THE FREEDOM THEATRE Based in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank, The Freedom Theatre rose out of the resistance to Israeli occupation, and has been an artistic hub of cultural resistance since its founding in 2006. Its productions often reflect, comment upon and challenge the realities of contemporary Palestinian society, while exploring various forms of artistic expressions. Past productions include adaptations of Animal Farm, Alice in Wonderland, Men in the Sun, Waiting for Godot and The Caretaker, as well as original plays. The company made its U.S. debut in 2013 with an adaptation of Athol Fugard’s The Island. The theater has produced 24 original plays and adaptations, played to audiences of more than 100,000 children and adults, and toured 15 countries with plays, workshops and presentations. The Freedom Theatre was founded by Juliano Mer-Khamis, an Israeli citizen who served as a paratrooper in the Israeli army. The son of an Israeli Jew and Arab Christian, Juliano considered himself 100% Palestinian and 100% Jewish. His mother was Arna Mer Khamis, a Jewish activist who devoted her life to campaigning for freedom and human rights. Arna’s work is documented in the internationally awarded film Arna’s Children. After his mother’s death, Juliano continued her legacy, co-founding The Freedom Theatre in 2006. He was its General Director until 2011, when he was assassinated outside the theater, possibly by an Islamic extremist unhappy with the theater’s progressive attitudes towards women and girls. At the time of his murder, he was mounting a production of Spring Awakening, the story of young people coming of age in a repressive society. thefreedomtheatre.org ABOUT NYU SKIRBALL NYU Skirball, located in the heart of Greenwich Village, is one of New York City’s major presenters of international work, and has been the premier venue for cultural and performing arts events in lower Manhattan since 2003.

To celebrate the passing of this downtown institution—along with the recent release of the story collection NOTHING UNTOWARD: TALES FROM THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW (Applause Books)—we have put together a Pumpkin Pie Show retrospective, cherry-picking a few of our favorite productions from the Pie’s past. See one, see them all; no two shows are the same: COMMENCEMENT Written by Clay McLeod Chapman Performances by Hanna Cheek Thursday, October 12, 19 & 26 at 8pm Hanna Cheek plays three women drawn together in the grim aftermath of a high school shooting. “Will leave you wringing your hands in helpless empathy.” -SEE Magazine SEASICK Written by Clay McLeod Chapman with Songs by Kyle Jarrow Performances by Chapman, Hanna Cheek, Abe Goldfarb, Katie Hartman & Brian Silliman Friday, October 13, 20 & 27 at 8pm As an outbreak of norovirus spreads through a luxury cruise-liner, one family must fight for survival onboard this sun-and-blood soaked voyage into insanity. “Thoroughly marvelous, gross and peculiar, not to mention a cause for huge, unbecoming snorts of laughter.” -Time Out NY (WARNING: Not for the weak-stomached. Paramedics were called during the original run for fainting audience members!) BEST OF BLITZKRIEG Written by Clay McLeod Chapman Performances by Chapman, Hanna Cheek & Special Guests Saturday, October 14, 21 & 28 at 8pm 20 years. Over 60 stories. Hanna and Clay celebrate their 20th anniversary of the Pumpkin Pie Show with a hand-selected roster of their favorite stories. Every story will be chosen at random each night onstage, guaranteeing each show will be completely different from the last. “Chapman uses the macabre to explore the humanity of his characters and reveal an almost spiritual side to the horrific.” -The New York Times THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW Celebrating its second decade of performances, the Pumpkin Pie Show is a literary fist in the face. Part storytelling session, part boxing match, part shamanistic ritual, the Pumpkin Pie Show has established itself as an all-points artistic hodgepodge of theatre and literature. We pick and choose the essentials of both mediums, channeling their rocking properties to create an intimate relationship between performer and audience. We want to see the whites of our audience’s eyes. Certain basic rules that we’ve set up for all our shows are: No sets. No costumes. No nothing beyond the text and the performance itself. Our goal is to strip away those elements that we find extraneous to the tale being told, conjuring up an atmosphere of “creating something out of nothing,” as well as focusing on that ethereal connective tissue between the one telling the story and our audience. Packed with enough emotional intensity to feel like a rock concert rather than just spinning a yarn, the Pumpkin Pie Show is pure bedtime stories for adults.

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 (Brooklyn) for Creative Time.

Blank – Sous Les Etoiles Gallery Through November 04, 2017 – New York Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is pleased to announce “Blank,“ German photographer Andreas Gefeller’s premiere exhibition with the gallery. An opening reception with the artist in attendance will be held on Thursday, September 7, 6–8pm, and an artist talk is scheduled for Monday, September 11 at 7pm. Through his previous series, Japan series and Supervision, Andreas Gefeller has always intrigued us with the pristine and haunting perspective of these urban and industrial landscapes. In his series Blank, he continues his journey but this time by awakening our fears and imaginations. When traveling the world, in Tokyo, Seoul, Amsterdam, London, Dusseldorf, Gefeller, as a surveyor of his time, gives us a reflection of what the world could be in the event of a future catastrophe. The photographs are far beyond historic and ordinary optical occurences. The works from the space uses the artificial lighting from our towns and cities and turns them into an ephemeral wonderland. Excessively overexposed photographs of building façades, motorway intersections, container terminals and refineries reveal vast faded areas. The photographs create tension between urban reality and its potential chaos leaving the possibility to envision a strange and overthrown world. 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 PRST17, the number for “avocado” color . Physically weaving each thread on a floor loom, each laborious hour marked by a new swath of cloth being created. The paintings become a geographical map and timeline. Each thread is an axis. Each weave is a fixed coordinate, or a fixed moment in time, striking somewhere. As it has been for thousands of years in the ancient practice of handmade textile production, this process is linear and methodical. The artist’s final act of transforming the cloth into paintings is not. She cuts and rearranges the material, disrupting the careful order in her process. Her paintings become a patchwork of time; different pieces of cloth, created at different moments in her process, join together so that beginning, middle, and end are no longer distinguishable.

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 aerial landscape, a shrouded, injured figure, a hole or a wound. As Geva explains, “there is a deep and mysterious relationship between a landscape and a cultural or political environment.” Addressing many of the same questions as his abstract works, Geva’s recent figurative work introduces an increasingly sensual aspect. Untitled 2016 depicts a figure curled into a fetal position, whose gender and expression is ambiguous. The subject is at once vulnerable yet possibly challenging the viewer; the pink swathes of paint throughout the composition can either be energizing or lurid. “An image may be charged with cultural or symbolic meaning and completely devoid of such meaning at the same time, and this dialectic is fundamental to my work,” says Geva. Dennis Scholl: the Book of Impure Intentions – Albertz Benda Through November 18, 2017 – New York GORDON PARKS FOUNDATION Presents Devin Allen’s A BEAUTIFUL GHETTO Exhibition / Artist Reception – Gordon Parks Foundation Through November 18, 2017 – Pleasantville The Gordon Parks Foundation’s (GPF) will be exhibiting photographs by celebrated amateur photographer Devin Allen entitled A Beautiful Ghetto.

The exhibit will be on view at the Foundation’s exhibition space from September 15 through November 18, 2017 and an open artist reception and book signing will be held the evening of Friday, September 15. 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.

The two-year program engages musicians, architects, dancers, poets—anyone who is interested in expanding the boundaries of drawing. Open Sessions artists work together to create a dynamic, continuous conversation, viewing drawing as an activity rather than a product. Oedipus El Rey – Sibling Movie Night Through November 19, 2017 – Baldwin Please note: this performance may contain smoking, blood, violence, gun shots, and nudity. Set in South Central LA, OEDIPUS EL REY is an electrifying new take on the Greek tragedy, written by acclaimed playwright Luis Alfaro (Electricidad, Straight as a Line). Oedipus is reimagined as a troubled Latino whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar above the barbed wire of the prison where he’s spent his life. But in a place where everyone is trapped—by desperation or fate, history or violence—no one man can change his story alone. Love, family and belief collide in this chilling, incredibly powerful new play that asks: what’s fate, and what’s just the system? A Distant Embrace – Rockland Center for the Arts Through November 19, 2017 – West Nyack Hudson Valley artist Robert Hite grew up in Virginia but has traveled the world. Hite is interested in exploring issues of local knowledge, memory, transience, environment, disenfranchisement and domicile as living art through sculpture, painting and photography. Much of his photographic work juxtaposes the artificial and the natural and play with architectural scale. Hite’s cottages and cabins, many on stilts, have a lopsided, somewhat ramshackle air to them, as if nature is slowly reclaiming the buildings. Hite has shown his work widely, including a solo show at The Nassau County Museum of Art, the Hancock Shaker Village and the Berkshire Museum. Hite was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2014. The exhibit is on view October 8 through November 19, 2017. For more information contact: Rockland Center for the Arts, 845-358-0877, info@rocklandartcenter.org. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY 10994. Dwellings Exhibition – Rockland Center for the Arts Through November 19, 2017 – West Nyack Rockland Center for the Arts is having an exhibition of self-contained units of accommodations through a diverse collection of materials and mediums. The prefabricated house has been, and continues to be, not only a reflection on the house as a replicable object of design but also as a critical agent in the discourse of sustainability, and architectural invention, it is a source of societal class and social structure, family communication, or the deterioration of our very core of existence. Three separate exhibitions based on this subject include a solo exhibit, “A Distant Embrace”, works by Robert Hite. “Dwellings” with artists Eric Cremers, Jennie Chien, Lynn Cornelius, Susan Cox, Kevin Frances, Hao Ni, and Charlotte Schulz. “Home” is a smaller group show of selected artists. The exhibits are on view October 8 through November 19, 2017. For more information contact: Rockland Center for the Arts, 845-358-0877, info@rocklandartcenter.org.

Star-Crossed: Dances for Lovers – United Solo Theatre Festival at Theatre Row Through November 19, 2017 – New York TruDee—pink polyester-clad, mullet-sporting, middle-aged, divorced dancing storyteller—has cast herself as Juliet in Shakespeare’s famous tale of love and tragedy.

In this show, she shares her hilarious and often cringeworthy adventures in being that lone black person in a world of white. Director: Schoen Smith. Show image by Chris Popio. Recommended for: adults, theatre community. Link: artist. – 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. Christine Ebersole – 54 Below Through November 20, 2017 – New York Multiple Tony Award-winner Christine Ebersole returns to Feinstein’s /54 Below with a special engagement of her brand new concert After The Ball… while starring on Broadway in the premiere of the new musical War Paint!

Theatermania exclaimed “…it’s a masterful performance…Ebersole is a Broadway broad at the top of her game and nothing will convince me otherwise, certainly not after this incredible night of story and song”. The New York Times agreed, calling it, “Christine Ebersole’s wonderful new show… Her gorgeous, searching renditions of “Autumn Leaves” and “(Have I Stayed) Too Long at the Fair” rang with personal poignancy.” This new engagement of After The Ball will feature a few new songs and surprises. Marcus Strickland’s Twi-Life & Friends – Monthly Fall Residency – Blue Note Through November 20, 2017 – New York “It all started as a hobby”, Marcus Strickland says of his beat making. “It was what I did after playing sets with Roy Haynes or Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts” or on a break between practicing saxophone etudes. It started separately, and naturally became one with my voice as a composer and saxophonist.” Marcus Strickland’s debut Blue Note/ Revive Records release Nihil Novi (Latin for Nothing New) is about our relationship with time: how many things in the world can seem new, but are actually cyclical occurrences or developments from where the past left us off. From 2 Live Crew to Twerking, and Rodney King to Eric Garner, be careful what you call new. The multi reedist/ beatmaker made this record with a strong and inspiring urgency that is inclusive of, yet not exclusively from his jazz roots. “A musician does not grow from forcing themselves into a vacuum. Genres eventually cross pollinate, making our ability to be in the present more relevant than the original given terms. Creativity does not stay within lanes, it feeds off of its surroundings.” However, Strickland has a deep rooted respect and admiration for his predecessors, and it shows in his music. “One great tool that we have to navigate the present is culture. Culture, being the culmination of our triumphs and failures, gives us an advantage when dealing with similar situations, and it reminds us of what is important. So for me Nihil Novi is just a reminder to me of what’s mostly important to me, musically and emotionally. I just want it to feel good. When I made the beats that inspired this record I was entrenched in J Dilla, Mad Lib, Slum Village, D’Angelo. I learned from them how to add and subtract layers for an overall affect, how powerful even the most subtle melodic line is when it is absent.” “The many layers, pre-production, and the need for fresh ears to this music were the reasons why I wanted to work with a producer on this venture.” Says Strickland. “It’s impossible to learn how to produce without working close with producers, so I mustered up the courage to ask one of the most well regarded of my heroines to produce this record, Meshell Ndegeocello.” The genre-less, bass guru, songstress, producer generously accepted and immediately allotted the tracking, mixing and mastering to highly regarded sound wizard, Bob Power. DownBeat Critic’s Poll winner Marcus Strickland has steadily proven to be an essential part of the jazz continuum since he stepped on the scene in the early 2000s. He will present his Twi-Life group at The 2013 NYC Winter JazzFest; a highly anticipated annual event which showcases over seventy new and established groups in tandem with the Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. Twi-Life, an electric band with its inception rooted in the soul music Strickland grew up listening to, is a testament to his irrepressible versatility. “It seems, so far, that every Twi-Life band will be signi?cantly different than the next because it is my refuge for trying out my wildest ideas,” says Strickland, who is emerging as one of the most multi-faceted and proli?c writers and performers of his generation. His genre-bending propensity has produced fascinating and unconventional collaborations and this time around is no different; the members of this eclectic ensemble have worked individually with artists like Kanye West, Bilal and Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. The group includes the wide-ranging talents of hip-hop lyricist, DJ and Berklee professor, Raydar Ellis; legendary trombonist, Frank Lacy; dexterous keyboardist Yuki Hironao; The Roots’ newest member, bassist Mark Kelley; dynamic drummer Charles Haynes; and special guest, singer-songwriter Jean Baylor, formally of the hit- making 90s R&B duo, Zhané. Strickland’s development as a producer is the nexus of this project whose music comes mostly from taking his beats and applying acoustic instrumentation and improvisation. “Once you combine the many textures, layers and number crunching of [drum] programming with human spontaneity, the possibilities are in?nite and it becomes yet another instrument for human invention.” Grow NYC: Elmhurst Greenmarket – Elmhurst Hospital Through November 21, 2017 – Elmhurst Enjoy this market located along an entrance to Elmhurst hospital, which offers a variety of local produce, orchard fruit, picked at its peak of ripeness, hearty vegetables grown in the nutrient-rich soil of Orange County’s “Black Dirt” region, and freshly baked bread, pastries and granola.

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 a week in cities across America. This is MY SHOT. Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze – Van Cortlandt Manor Through November 25, 2017 – Croton-on-Hudson Come gawk at more jack o’lanterns than ever before.

Mccoy Tyner – Blue Note Through November 27, 2017 – New York Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner is widely considered one of the finest and most influential pianists in jazz history. His signature booming left-hand and fleeting right created a unique sound that can be heard on his recordings as a sideman with the John Coltrane Quartet in the 1960s and on his 80-plus albums as a leader. Tyner’s most recent project for McCoy Tyner Music/Half Note Records is his first solo effort in almost a decade titled Solo: Live From San Francisco. The release is the third for his label and features eleven solo vignettes recorded at the Herbst Theater in 2007. Tyner’s blues based piano style, replete with sophisticated chords and an explosively percussive left hand has transcended conventional styles to become one of the most identifiable sounds in improvised music. His harmonic contributions and dramatic rhythmic devices form the vocabulary of a majority of jazz pianists. Born in 1938 in Philadelphia, he became a part of the fertile jazz and R&B scene of the early ’50s. His parents imbued him with a love for music from an early age. His mother encouraged him to explore his musical interests through formal training. At 17 he began a career-changing relationship with Miles Davis’ sideman saxophonist John Coltrane. After Coltrane left Davis’ band, Tyner joined Coltrane for the classic album My Favorite Things (1960), and remained at the core of what became one of the most seminal groups in jazz history, The John Coltrane Quartet. The band, which also included drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Jimmy Garrison, had an extraordinary chemistry, fostered in part by Tyner’s almost familial relationship with Coltrane. Tyner has always expanded his vision of the musical landscape and incorporated new elements, whether from distant continents or diverse musical influences. More recently he has arranged for big bands, employed string arrangements, and even reinterpreted popular music. Today, Tyner has released nearly 80 albums under his name, earned four Grammys and was awarded Jazz Master from the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002. He continues to leave his mark on generations of improvisers, and yet remains a disarmingly modest and spiritually directed man.

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.

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.

The extraordinary songs written by Bono and U2 find a new voice in a concert that holds to the beautiful melodic lines of the songs, while bringing the lyrics forward into a fresh light. Accompanied by piano, cello, violin, bass, and drums, Linehan will continue her mission of providing audiences with the unexpected experience of hearing U2’s famous songs as if for the first time — while always being true to the heart and soul of each time-honored hit. Hailed by the New York Times as “fiercely talented,” Maxine Linehan’s success on both sides of the Atlantic includes sold-out concerts at Paris’ famed Theatre du Chatelet, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, Feinstein’s/54 Below and cities across America. Her solo shows An American Journey, Beautiful Songs, and What Would Petula Do? have all garnered rave reviews and spun off critically acclaimed albums. Her ability to emotionally engage throughout a stunning vocal performance is unparalleled. One: The Songs of U2 will be produced and directed by her longtime collaborator, Scott Siegel, who has produced, written, and directed shows for Michael Feinstein at Jazz at Lincoln Center and is, perhaps, best known as the creator/writer/director/host of Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year. 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.

Leibovitz is a senior writer for Tablet Magazine, and one of the hosts of Unorthodox, the magazine’s popular podcast.  He is the author of several books, including, most recently, A Broken Hallelujah: Rock n’ Roll, Redemption, and the Life of Leonard Cohen. LABA staff includes Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director; Liel Leibovitz, Lead Teacher; Ruby Namdar, Resident Scholar; and Hanan Elstein, Editorial Director.      “As so many of us feel such a profound sense of unease with the state of our nation and the world, there are few wiser courses of action than to return to the ancient texts and ponder what they have to teach us,” said Leibovitz. “The issues facing us today — of violence and peace, of hate and of lust, of despair and of reconciliation — are all there in the sacred books, waiting for us to open them up and again ask the timely and timeless questions that forever haunt us.”   “In our 10th year, this theme seemed to be the perfect combination of times and themes aligning,” said Ronit Muszkatblit, Artistic Director of Arts + Culture, the 14th Street Y. “After ten years of study, we are mature enough in our process to handle a gravitas topic and depth of investigation. Our track record shows that we can push boundaries and our community responds.  It is exciting that the 14th Street Y and Educational Alliance have been supporting this experiment and giving it the time to thrive.  It is inspiring to see what happens when we put artists at the core of a community center.”   Highlights for this season’s LABAlive events include: • Amy Handelsman’s memoir, LOVE BY TKO:  Life Lessons from the Ring, is about her obsession with boxing, as both a participant and observer, and her simultaneous return to my Jewish spiritual roots, as ignited by her trainers, the women competing for the New York Golden Gloves, her colleagues from the Mark Taper Forum and a (failed) romance with an unlikely contender. • Playwright Zohar Tirosh-Polk will explore perpetual cultural/national and individual trauma at the heart of many conflicts, and specifically PTSD in the struggle to lead to healing and peace. • Artist Tal Beery will produce a series of prints and performative responses to a manuscript hand-written in Hebrew, Polish and Yiddish by his grandmother, a Holocaust survivor, before her death. • Yael Sloma creates a video installation Cardinal Directions that observes Israeli settlements in Palestinian Territories through the myth of the American Old West. The video combines documentation of the current day-to-day occurrences in settlements in the West Bank with the contemporary incarnations of the Old-West myth. • Writer Jess Honovich’s piece will investigate the intersections of play, commercialized war and inherent values of good and evil through discussions with three year olds, specifically considering superheroes and how the archetypes of war are internalized through play. • Israeli-American composer, multi-instrumentalist and music therapist Tal Gur will work to complete a piece called Mind Crossing, a multi-disciplinary performance fusing music, dance, video, and documentary based on a collection of letters written by his grandfather after World War II.   Each year, The Theater at the 14th Street Y presentsthe residency program of LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture. The goal is to provide a big picture narrative focused on social awareness and changethat transcends cultures and borders. The Theater supports the creation of new art and culture by providing the space, time, and resources needed to create new work. Inspired by the 14 study sessions of the fellowship, the Fellows will share their new works with the public in the LABAlive Series at the 14 th Street Y.   DRUNK / LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture November 18, 2017 The 2017-18 LABA Fellows kick off the season with DRUNK.  This evening includes a five course wine tasting led by renowned sommeliers. The evening will be imbued with revelry and new work inspired by ancient Jewish text in a cabaret setting.   LABAlive Series  January 18, 2018; March 22, 2018; May 31, 2018  Every LABAlive event will present three new works in process reflecting on the theme WAR + PEACE.  Each artist’s unique contemplation presented on stage weaves into a multidisciplinary evening shared with the public.  LABA encourages artists to test boundaries, take risks, and discover ways in which Classical Jewish text can inspire new, deep and meaningful works, which are then coupled with a theatrical teaching of text to enhance and widen the context of each piece. At each LABAlive, Fellows intrigue and inspire, leaving audiences with a curiosity to see more. Many of the Fellow’s works go on to second stage productions, with many premiering at the 14th Street Y the following year.     For tickets, visit www.14streety.org/tickets or call 646-395-4310.  For details, visit www.labajournal.com.     ABOUT THE FELLOWS    Tal Beery (b. 1984) is an artist and educator.

Max Ernst: Beyond Painting – The Museum of Modern Art Through January 01, 2018 – 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 the artist’s own invention. Floor Two, The Paul J.

Curated by David Hammons – MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through January 01, 2018 – New York Charles White (1918–1979) taught drawing in Los Angeles from the mid-1960s until the end of his life, and mentored a generation of students. Among them is David Hammons (American, born 1943), who studied with White early in his career. This exhibition, curated by Hammons, includes White’s monumental work Black Pope (Sandwich Board Man)(1973), from The Museum of Modern Art’s collection, and a brush and ink drawing on blue prepared paper by the Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci, lent by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from the British Royal Collection. Created over 450 years apart, the two works share formal similarities and reveal a devotion to drawing by both artists, linking their lasting influence on future generations. White and Leonardo also shared a more personal connection: both were born in the first half of April. With this in mind, Hammons commissioned Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal to read both artists’ natal charts, also on view in the exhibition and discussed by Ullal on the accompanying audio guide. By presenting their destinies as written in the stars, Hammons shifts our attention from the gallery to the galaxy and asks us to consider commonalities between these two artists. Appearing a year prior to the forthcoming MoMA exhibition Charles White: A Retrospective, this project begins the Museum’s consideration of White’s work and his legacy. Feast of India – The Met Through January 02, 2018 – New York Yotam Ottolenghi, chef, author Madhur Jaffrey, restaurateur, chef and author Menu created and executed by chef, Floyd Cardoz Following the delicious success of his 2016 Feast of Jerusalem, the lionized chef, restaurateur, author, and now The New York Times food writer Yotam Ottolenghi returns with another lavish banquet inspired by the vibrant and evocative colors of India, with the legendary Madhur Jaffrey, the global authority on Indian cuisine, and a menu curated by celebrated chef, Floyd Cardoz (Tabla, Paowalla).

Bring the Kids tickets are not available for this event. Tickets to this event include same day Museum admission. 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. Other parts of the exhibition showcase the latest isotopic and DNA testing being performed on mummies, and explain how these sophisticated analytical techniques are helping scientists discover important clues about long-vanished practices. Mummies was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago. 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 artist’s frontispieces to Augustine’s City of God (1475), Plutarch’s Parallel Lives (1478), and Aristotle’s Opera (1483) are masterpieces of trompe-l’oeil. The last has been called the “most magnificent printed book in the world.” Drawn to Greatness: Master Drawings from the Thaw Collection – The Morgan Library & Museum Through January 07, 2018 – New York This exhibition highlights more than 150 master drawings from the Thaw Collection, one of the world’s finest private collections containing over 400 sheets. Assembled over the last fifty years, and made a promised gift to the Morgan in 1975, the collection has now been given in full to the museum by Life Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Drawn to Greatness focuses on pivotal artists and key moments in the history of draftsmanship. Works by major masters from the Renaissance to the modern era will be on view, including Mantegna, Rubens, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Piranesi, Watteau, Fragonard, Goya, Ingres, Turner, Daumier, Redon, Degas, Cézanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, and Pollock. 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 resonance as we consider them within the matrix of war and its aftermath. The quilts are drawn primarily from the unparalleled collection of internationally acclaimed quilt authority Dr. Annette Gero, with additional examples from public and private collections, many never before on view. 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—such as mutiny on a Russian battleship, or American riot police standing guard at a political protest—that are usually represented through journalistic coverage, yet they express the artists’ personal, often emotional, perspectives. As the exhibition title suggests, Goya, Eisenstein, and Longo together provide proof not only of significant events or actions, but more crucially of their ongoing resonances through art. Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914 – South Street Seaport Museum Through January 07, 2018 – South Street Seaport Learn all about 20th-century ocean liners, like Titanic and Lusitania, and the differences between traveling aboard as a first- or third-class passenger. Featuring both original and reproduced artifacts, this thought-provoking exhibit highlights immigrant life at the turn of the century. Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasures – 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.

Kennedy’s Life and Times – New-York Historical Society Through January 07, 2018 – New York American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times is a new exhibition commemorating President John F. Kennedy’s private life and public trajectory. One of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled, it brings together images from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives that capture public and private moments from Kennedy’s life. Some of the photographs on display are iconic; others have rarely been seen. Kennedy’s administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America. No single politician was photographed more than Kennedy—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946 and his fairy-tale wedding to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 to his run for the White House in 1960 and the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. Documentary photographers such as Ed Clark, Lisl Steiner, Ralph Crane, Philippe Halsman, Ted Spiegel Jacques Lowe, Lawrence Schiller, Steve Schapiro, and Sam Vestal captured the optimism and challenges of the early 1960s in some of the finest and most vivid images of the period. New-York Historical’s presentation of American Visionary is part of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum’s year-long, nationwide celebration that commemorates Kennedy’s centennial year. Based on the new book JFK: A Vision for America by Stephen Kennedy Smith and Douglas Brinkley, the exhibition is organized and curated by Lawrence Schiller of Wiener Schiller Productions and Marilyn Satin Kushner, curator and head, Department of Prints, Photographs, and Architectural Collections at the New-York Historical Society.The exhibition is also on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum through September 17. American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times is presented by New-York Historical Society and Wiener Schiller Productions in cooperation with the John F. Kennedy Library and Foundation. Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the Governance Institute and the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. Additional support has been provided by Stephen Kennedy Smith and Getty Images. Exhibitions at the New-York Historical Society are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Petrit Halilaj: Ru – New Visit Hello Museum Through January 07, 2018 – New York Petrit Halilaj (b. 1986, Kostërrc, Skenderaj-Kosovo) often uses his own biography as a point of departure, adopting exhibition processes to alter the course of private and collective histories. Encompassing sculpture, drawing, text, and video, many of Halilaj’s works incorporate materials from his native Kosovo and manifest as ambitious spatial installations through which the artist translates personal relationships into sculptural forms. For his New Museum exhibition, Halilaj presents a major new project that begins in Runik, the city in Kosovo in which he grew up and the site of one of the earliest Neolithic settlements in the region, where some of Kosovo’s most important artifacts have been found. Archaeological digs in 1968 and 1983 uncovered part of the country’s most significant material history from the period, including the musical instrument known as the Runik Ocarina. Now spread across two countries and several institutions as the result of the Kosovo War in the 1990s, the most valuable of these objects currently reside in storage at the Natural History Museum in Belgrade, with the less significant finds still kept at the Kosovo Museum in Pristina. Out of public reach and inaccessible to the people of Runik, these objects hold great symbolic value for a nation missing parts of its shared frame of reference, but also point to the condition of contradictory claims from two countries that share material heritage. In “Petrit Halilaj: RU,” Halilaj presents a new video work, several large fabric sculptures, and an extensive environment that draws on his research into the flight patterns and habitats of migratory birds. Piecing together multiple institutional and archeological records coming from sources across borders, Halilaj makes the full extent of the findings in Runik available to the public for the first time. Recreating a total of 505 found and recorded objects and fragments as birds who have temporarily taken residence in an imagined landscape, Halilaj envisions these artifacts on temporary stopover, momentarily reunited as beings who live and thrive through movement, rather than belonging to any one site or context. Halilaj rebuts the idea that this collection should define only one nation, and also questions its scope through recollections of its Neolithic civilization by friends and neighbors in Runik. Such narratives are told through objects discovered on their land—horns, heads, torsos—which residents imbue with mystic significance and make the subject of alternative stories of origin. While these stories’ material proof has been displaced or lost, and to this day is still mistrusted to institutions officially charged with caring for them, they exist through description by and in the memory of individuals. This leads Halilaj from the real into the imagined, and he merges the factual with myths that in turn give shape to large sculptural forms that visitors can recline on. With “RU,” Halilaj presents history through personal and collective narratives, defined through movement and temporary residence—ultimately proposing how objects could serve a very different purpose in the context of museums, and as part of histories still being written. Pursuing the Unpredictable: the New Museum 1977–2017 – New Visit Hello Museum Through January 07, 2018 – New York On the occasion of the New Museum’s 40th Anniversary, “Pursuing the Unpredictable: The New Museum 1977–2077” reflects on the institution’s pursuit of groundbreaking art and ideas, and its legacy of questioning the structures and functions of museums. Founded in 1977 as a radical gesture by art historian and curator Marcia Tucker, the New Museum began as an alternative model of museum practice. At its inception, it was the only museum in Manhattan entirely dedicated to the exhibition, interpretation, and documentation of contemporary art. The institution championed under-recognized figures and those on the brink of exposure, and responded to new forms of art by proposing innovative ways of engaging with artists and making their work accessible to the public. This anniversary exhibition borrows its title from an essay Tucker wrote on the conceptual artist John Baldessari, whose 1981 exhibition was one of the New Museum’s earliest solo shows by an artist whose work had not yet been sufficiently examined—one of several foundational exhibition formats that continues today. Other exhibition formats, old and new, have taken their cue from artists’ changing modes of creating and presenting work, often intentionally pushing at the limits of what a traditional museum can support. Bottlenose Dolphins 3-4 Years (Drop-Off) – JCC Manhattan Through January 08, 2018 – NEW YORK, Students will be engaged in the fundamentals of swimming with songs and activities in a safe and fun social setting during this parent/child class. ‘Puffs, Or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic’ – New World Stages Through January 14, 2018 – Midtown West Harry Potter fans who like to laugh will appreciate this lighthearted yet witty take on all that time spent learning spells and sorcery. “Puffs” is the story of some Hogwarts underdogs and how their experience at the magical wizarding school was a far cry from Harry’s. As a special treat for parents and families, all matinee performances are appropriate for young children ages 8 and older. Helen Johnson: Ends – New Visit Hello Museum Through January 14, 2018 – New York Johnson’s densely layered canvases incorporate historical imagery ranging from political cartoons, nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century painting, architectural diagrams and maps, fragments of bodies, and handwritten text rendered with a variety of painterly gestures. Often double-sided and scaled to the human body, Johnson’s works are arranged in carefully composed installations, positioning the viewer at the intersection of a broad range of cultural and historical influences. Although driven by a deep and rigorous process of historical research, her paintings adopt a playful and even humorous take on historical memory and ingrained social conventions. “Helen Johnson: Ends” is the artist’s first exhibition in an American institution. For her presentation in the museum’s lobby gallery, she will produce a new series that extends her broader thematic concerns, while maintaining her experimental approach to the material and the communicative possibilities of painting as a critical medium. “Helen Johnson: Ends” is curated by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator. Helen Johnson was born in 1979 in Melbourne, Australia, where she lives and works. She earned a BFA from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and a PhD from Monash University. She has recently had solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2017); Chapter, Cardiff (2017); Glasgow International (2016); Sutton Gallery, Melbourne (2015); Laurel Gitlen, New York (2015); Chateau Shatto, Los Angeles (2015); and Minerva, Sydney (2014), among others. Her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions including “The National 2017,” Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney (2017) and the 2016 Tarrawarra Biennial, “Endless Circulation,” TarraWarra Museum of Art, TarraWarra, Victoria, Australia (2016). Johnson’s writing has appeared in numerous publications and her book Painting is a Critical Form was published by 3-ply in 2015. Video Arcade: Changing Exhibitions Gallery – Museum of the Moving Image Through January 15, 2018 – Astoria In 1980, $2.8 billion in quarters were pumped into video arcade games in the United States, more than triple the revenue from any previous year. The video arcade had arrived, as a popular culture phenomenon and a vital force in the entertainment industry. Improved graphics, game design, and marketing made such games as Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man into addictive and commercially successful hits. At their peak, there were more than 10,000 video arcades across the country. Within a decade, the rise of the personal computer and home consoles would mark the end of the video arcade’s golden age. This arcade allows visitors to play 23 of the era’s most beloved games, in their original form. Games on view include: 10 Yard Fight (1983) Arkanoid (1986) Battlezone (1980) Centipede (1980) Defender (1981) Dig Dug (1982) Donkey Kong (1981) Frogger (1981) Galaxy Force II (1988) Gauntlet (1985) Karate Champ (1984) Mortal Kombat (1992) Ms. Pac-Man (1981) NBA Jam (1993) Out Run (1986) Pole Position (1982) Q*Bert (1999) Robotron 2084 (1982) Star Wars (1983) Terminator 2 (1991) Track and Field (1983) Tron (1981) Zaxxon (1982) Tokens are required for play and may be purchased in the gallery at token machines or in the Museum store. Throughout the run of the exhibition, games may be retired and replaced with other games for conservation purposes. Latino Ministry – The Riverside Church Through January 21, 2018 – New York 430 MLK 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, double mummies, and misleading packaging among some of the mummies that the priests sold to worshippers.

Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art – New York Historical Society Through January 21, 2018 – Upper West Side Ominous threats filled the years around World War II—Nazism, the escalating plight of European Jews, Fascism, Japanese militarism, and racism. Arthur Szyk, the great 20th-century activist in art, confronted the turbulent, hate-filled period with forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes’ destructive and inhumane policies. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art explores the activism of the Polish-born artist through more than 40 politically incisive works that underscore Szyk’s role as a kind of “one man army” fighting odious policies and protagonists and advocating civil and human rights. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts, with Irvin Ungar, project adviser. The book, Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art, is available from the NYHistory Store. Support for Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is provided by Shelley and Steven Einhorn, the David Berg Foundation, the Edward and Sandra Meyer Foundation, and Nancy and Morris W. Offit. Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

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. Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait – MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through January 28, 2018 – New York Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). Bourgeois’s printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,200 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum’s Marron Atrium. The artist’s creative process is the organizing principle behind the exhibition. Over the course of her career, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime. Also, she said there was no “rivalry” between the mediums in which she worked, noting that “they say the same thing in different ways.” Here, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings, and within thematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture, the body, and nature, as well as investigations of abstraction and works made from old garments and household fabrics. In addition, the evolving states and variants of her prints will be emphasized in order to reveal Bourgeois’s creative thinking as it unfolded. Bringing together some 300 works, the exhibition celebrates the Museum’s archive of Bourgeois prints as well as the completion of the online catalogue raisonné, Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints & Books, available now in process at moma.org/bourgeoisprints, and ultimately documenting over 4,600 printed sheets in all. The Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait exhibition catalogue, by Deborah Wye, is available now. Items: Is Fashion Modern? – MoMA : Museum of Modern Art Through January 28, 2018 – New York Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi’s 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology. The Items: Is Fashion Modern? exhibition catalogue, by Paola Antonelli and Michelle Millar Fisher, is available now.

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. ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show’ – DR2 Theatre Through February 04, 2018 – Gramercy Park A theatrical recreation of Eric Carle’s beautifully imaginative stories, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, features a menagerie enchanting puppets during a magical 60-minute show that faithfully adapts four of Carle’s beloved books for the stage.

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.

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.

Sculpture in the Woods – Rockland Center for the Arts Through April 29, 2018 – West Nyack Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA’s new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration. Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. This tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland. The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY.

Seeds of Change – Pioneer Works Through September 30, 2018 – Brooklyn Presented by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School, Maria Thereza Alves, Seeds of Change: New York — A Botany of Colonization, studies colonialism, slavery and the global commerce of goods through the lens of displaced plants in ballast—the waste material historically used to balance ships in maritime trade. Dumped in ports at the end of passages, ballast often carried “dormant” seeds collected from its place of origin that remained in the soil for hundreds of years before germinating and growing. Brazilian artist Maria Thereza Alves’ New York iteration of Seeds of Change explores the history of foreign flora that traveled to Red Hook and surrounding areas by trade ship ballast over the past two centuries. As part of this community-focused project, Alves collaborated with horticultural experts and local communities at Pioneer Works, The High Line, The New School and Weeksville Heritage Center to research the nonindigenous plant species and the stories they tell about migration, commodification and valuation. Pioneer Works served as a site for the propagation of these plants, selected by Alves and planted by the 2017 Summer Youth Garden Program. These ballast flora plants will serve as the cornerstone of Alves’ exhibition—a “living installation” or greenhouse of more than 60 ballast flora—on view in the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries in the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at The New School from November 3 – 27, 2017. Following the exhibition, a selection of plants will return to Pioneer Works garden to serve as a resource for community and youth educational programming during summer 2018. Maria Thereza Alves is the recipient of the Vera List Center Prize for Art and Politics 2016-2018, a biennial award given to artists who have taken great risks to advance social justice in profound and visionary ways.

Inside You – American Musuem of Natural History Through June 16, 2019 – New York Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That’s more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum’s popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us. Engaging graphics detail how microbes aid digestion, influence your immune system, and help fight harmful microbes. You’ll find out how we acquire our microbiome and how it is shaped by the foods we eat and the environment we live in. Inside You is co-curated by Susan Perkins and Rob DeSalle, curators in the Museum’s Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics.

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur – The American Museum of Natural History Through January 19, 2020 – Upper West Side The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall’s current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery’s approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the “dinosaur” floor. Connected Worlds – New York Hall of Science Through January 31, 2020 – Flushing Meadows, Queens The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI’s iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. “Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment,” said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. “This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience.” Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

Picasso’s Le Tricorne – New-York Historical Society Through December 31, 2020 – Upper West Side Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso’s “Le Tricorne.” It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical’s collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called “Le Tricorne” the artist’s “supreme theatrical achievement.” The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a “Gift to the City.” The show positions Picasso’s curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist’s work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht. Dear Evan Hansen – Music Box Theatre Through December 31, 2020 – DEAR EVAN HANSEN MUSICAL PRODUCTION REVIEW Dear Evan Hansen has surpassed Josh Groban as Broadway’s biggest new hit. With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board. Its average ticket price of $141 remains one of the highest box office rates in its niche. This amazing hit was originally in book form and the creativity of Steven Levenson led to its seamless transition to a wave-making high school musical. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the musicals for Dear Evan Hansen. It is on track to be one of the most successful pieces of musical theater ever to originate in Washington. The plot is centered on the peculiar problem of communicating in a time where technology has made it easier to reach out to people. Evan Hansen is a friendless high school student who achieves Internet fame due to a misunderstanding he perpetuates in regards to his supposed closeness to another troubled classmate who committed suicide. The twists in the story line help to accentuate the challenges that the younger generation face in today’s world. The gripping effects of the story and the raw show of emotions make this story one of the most amazing productions to ever grace Broadway. Parents can gain more insight and understanding into their children. Children can watch and learn how challenging it is for their parents to understand them at times. Grandparents, well, they will get to view this communications conundrum from all angles and certainly gain a good chuckle along the way. This record-setting, sold-out musical has been attracting positive reviews from leading names in the industry and beyond. Peter Marks of the Washington post calls it ‘’A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.’’ He believes that this musical, which was first performed on November 14, 2016, holds the ace in every range. On the other hand, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times proclaims “This is a superb musical with great heart and humor.’’ When you leave a musical with one or two great songs running through your head, it can be said to be a success. However, leaving a musical with about 10 great songs running through your head is pretty much unheard of. The power of Dear Evan Hansen has set a new height that may not be surpassed by any production for many years. This is a performance that anyone serious about the arts absolutely must see and a performance certain to draw in permanently that first time attendee to a Broadway performance.

Toyota motor italia contatti: PRIMO CONTATTO: KIA Stonic 1.6 CRDi Energy

Il motore ha una buona erogazione . Il peso a vuoto, 1.255 kg , consente un’accelerazione 0-100 in 11″3 dichiarati . Nella circolazione urbana il propulsore risulta ruvido a causa di una frizione poco progressiva , che stacca presto e rende necessaria un po’ di abitudine per ottenere uno stile di guida  fluido . Probabilmente, con l’introduzione di un dispositivo per la scelta di differenti modalità di guida sarebbe stato possibile individuare una configurazione più “tranquilla” per la guida in città e una più “spinta” per la circolazione su strada aperta. Il cambio , dal canto suo, ha una buona manovrabilità ma soffre di una escursione eccessiva e ti trasmette una sensazione di “sfregamento” metallico durante gli innesti.
