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

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

Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino ("the divine one") by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today. This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context.

Gallery Lecture: Calder the Conquest of Time with Jed Perl - The Art Students League
February 13, 2018 - New York

Renowned art critic Jed Perl will discuss his recently published biography on Alexander Calder (1898-1976), one of the most beloved and widely admired artists of the twentieth century. Anybody who has ever set foot in a museum knows Calder as the inventor of the mobile, America's unique contribution to modern art. But only now, forty years after the artist's death, is the full story of his life being told in this biography, which is based on unprecedented access to Calder's letters and papers as well as scores of interviews. Jed Perl shows us why Calder was—and remains—a barrier breaker, an avant-garde artist with mass appeal. A wine, cheese and book-signing reception will follow the lecture. Jed Perl is a regular contributor to The New York Review of Books. He was the art critic for The New Republic for twenty years. His previous books include Magicians and Charlatans, Antoine's Alphabet, and New Art City, which was a New York Times Notable Book and an Atlantic Book of the Year. He lives in New York City.

Flaherty NYC: What You See Is What You Get - Anthology Film Archives
February 13, 2018 - NY

DANTE NO ES ÚNICAMENTE SEVERO is one of the most important films from the radical 1960s Catalan filmmaking movement known as the Barcelona School. An impossible sentimental relationship becomes a base from which to discuss the possibilities of narrative construction. This collaborative film shows how history can be recontextualized by collective demand through a drastic reinvention of aesthetics. PLAY BACK looks at how reality is performed and constructed, breaking the imperceptible relationship between sound and words during a recording session of an experimental choral work. ABOUT BRIDGES explores how viewing is dependent on temporal perception and subject position: a bridge looks different to a builder, an architect, or someone walking over it.

Lizz Wright - Lincoln Center
February 14, 2018 - New York

The last time Lizz Wright performed as a part of American Songbook in 2009, the New York Times described the Georgia-born singer-songwriter as "an awesome talent [who] stands in a direct line of descent from Odetta through Tracy Chapman, singers whose source of sustenance is the African-American spiritual tradition." A lot of life has happened for Wright since then, and her latest album, 2017's "potent, sanctified" Grace (Guardian, U.K.), a New York Times Best Album of the Year, reveals a new register that lends an affecting vulnerability to her sensual contralto voice and regal poise. Spurred by the divisiveness of the 2016 election, Wright felt compelled to reconnect with her Southern heritage both physically and artistically. The resulting sound boosts the down-home blues and gospel elements of her musical style that also traverses jazz, folk, and confessional singer-songwriter traditions, arriving at a place where all are welcome.

Apollon Musagète Quartet - Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall
February 16, 2018 - New York

The quiet solemnity and stately tread of Sibelius's Andante festivo lifts it above the event for which it was composed: the anniversary of a Finnish factory. The unorthodox harmonies in the opening bars of Mozart's String Quartet in C Major confounded his contemporaries and inspired its "Dissonance" nickname. That aside, its brilliant construction, lyricism, and joy make it one of the composer's finest works. Powerful, lush, melodious, reliant on forward-looking harmonies, and crafted with linked thematic elements, Grieg's String Quartet in G Minor anticipates the music of the future.

His appointment was the "first known instance of an African American being admitted to a vested choir of a white parish."

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

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

In defiance of its tragic ending, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet remains the greatest romance of all time, demonstrating the power of love in its many forms. Peter Martins' staging of this eternal classic, set to Prokofiev's glorious accompaniment, embraces naïve excitement, betrayal, despair, and steadfast resolution, emphasizing the innocence and youthful optimism of its two heroes while proving that even in death true love cannot be overcome.

"Josh: The Black Babe Ruth" - Theater For The New City
Through February 25, 2018 - New York City

The play dramatizes the life, loves and ultimately the tragic decline of Josh Gibson, who was perhaps the greatest slugger of the Negro leagues and who, some say, died of a broken heart in 1947, a short step from his prime as a player. The play, based on real events, shows Gibson struggling heroically to make it into the Big Leagues with emotional support from his good friend, the legendary pitcher Satchel Paige, and from the two women who are rivals for his heart--his common law wife and his mistress. Despite his majestic on-field performance, there are immovable obstacles, including resistance to Black players by Major League club owners and Gibson's own personal demons, which suffocate his chances.

Pollock [Us Premiere] - Abrons Art Center
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

In this play, acclaimed French playwright Fabrice Melquiot highlights how it is impossible to fully understand the brilliance and madness of Jackson Pollock without studying his marriage to artist Lee Krasner. POLLOCK explores the charged empty space between Pollock (performed by Jim Fletcher) and Krasner (performed by Birgit Huppuch); between his genius and her spirit; between the inhibitions of the former and the frustrations of the latter. Post performances discussion will take place on February 16 with Fabrice Melquiot and the creative team, and on February 22 with the creative team. [Equity Approved Showcase] Written by Fabrice Melquiot A production of Compagnie de la Vallée / l'héliotrope With Jim Fletcher and Birgit Huppuch Directed by Paul Desveaux,Compagnie de la Vallée / l'héliotrope Translated in English by Kenneth Casler & Myriam Heard

Rediscovery, Restoration and Renewal: the Eldridge Street Synagogue in Photographs - Museum at Eldridge Street
Through March 01, 2018 - New York

The exhibition opening for Rediscovery, Restoration and Renewal: The Eldridge Street Synagogue in Photographs will take place on Thursday, September 14 from 6 to 8 pm. The exhibition will be on view through March 1, 2018. Ten years ago, the Museum completed the restoration of the Eldridge Street Synagogue. In celebration of this milestone, this photography exhibition provides a visual record of that painstaking process. These haunting photographs capture the rediscovery of the synagogue during its most precarious years. In color and stark black and white, they recall the building's undeniable poignancy and power even as it was a "rainstorm away from collapse." Images of the restoration document the synagogue's dramatic transformation and the artisans who brought the building back to life. Drawings and photographs also capture the building's 21st-century renewal and the installation of a new stained glass window designed by artist Kiki Smith and architect Deborah Gans. Rediscovery, Restoration and Renewal: The Eldridge Street Synagogue in Photographs will be on view through March 1, 2018.

Sound House - The Flea Theater
Through March 03, 2018 - New York

SOUND HOUSE is inspired by the haunted and often funny sound worlds of idiosyncratic 20th century British composer Daphne Oram, inventor of Oramics, a precursor to the synthesizer. This multi-strand sound-generating machine serves as a structural model for an architectonic play in which disparate eras, worlds and time signatures collide as Daphne’s present-day alter ego, Constance Sneed, investigates the condition of invisibility that plagues her, too, and envisions a world in which old ladies do not die alone or forgotten. The collaborators have developed the play not only as text but as a “multidimensional object” -- precisely constructed yet constantly shifting -- in which sound not only carves out story, but functions as an experiential road map to the distortions of time and space that are central to Oram's ideas. Their mission: create a true “sound house,” an immersive sonic experience. The cast for SOUND HOUSE will feature Vicky Finney Crouch (Piper Theatre Productions), James Himelsbach (The Talking Band’s The Room Sings at LaMama; The Assembly’s I Will Look Forward to This Later at The New Ohio), and Susanna Stahlmann (Hedda Gabler with Wandering Bark Theatre).

This is the Color Described by the Time - The Flea Theater
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

In THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, collaboratively created by the performance laboratory Door 10, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein’s repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape. THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME is a fractured journey through Stein’s daily routine in France during World War II as she struggles with writer’s block, listens to the radio, shares a meal with Alice B. Toklas, and confronts her own mortality. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein’s forgotten politics and raises questions about the inextricable link between the political, personal, and artistic. The cast for THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME will feature Stephanie Roth-Haberle (Drama Desk Award nominee for Artist Descending a Staircase; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Christina Rouner (The Malcontent with Red Bull Theater; Coram Boy on Broadway), Ean Sheehy (Re...

"Having Our Say" - North of History
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

The play is a tour-de-force for two black actresses. We enter the home of two centenarian sisters: Sadie Delaney, a retired teacher, age 103 and her kid sister, Bessie Delaney, a retired dentist, age 101. Like molasses and vinegar, these daughters of a former slave were always temperamental opposites, but together they grew up in the Jim Crow South, lived in Harlem during its renaissance and had professional careers. While making dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – through stories of racial injustice and personal strife, unified by faith, family, and time.

Platonov, or A Play with No Name - New Ohio Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: ... (read more)

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Black Light - The Public Theater
Through March 25, 2018 - New York

Daniel Alexander Jones returns to Joe's Pub as Jomama Jones, his critically-acclaimed alter-ego, in BLACK LIGHT. Commissioned as part of Joe's Pub's NEW YORK VOICES program, BLACK LIGHT is a musical revival for a turbulent time. Jomama leads an intimate journey – through the darkness of personal and political upheaval, and the shards of shattered illusions – illuminated by spontaneous humor and what The New Yorker calls her "very particular radiance." Set to pop, soul, rock and disco, this immersive performance piece removes the barrier between artist and audience through inquiry, story and song.

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures - Museum of Chinese in America
Through March 25, 2018 - Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal - Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal is the first U.S. museum exhibition to present the extraordinary drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Spain, 1852–1934), the father of modern neuroscience. Cajal's astonishing depictions of the brain—which combine cutting-edge scientific knowledge with consummate draftsmanship—offer much greater clarity than photographs, so much so that they are still in wide use today.Featuring approximately 80 of Cajal's drawings, the show will situate them within the history of scientific illustration from the 16th to 19th centuries, and juxtapose them with contemporary visualizations of the brain. Organized by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota in collaboration with the Cajal Institute, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by Abrams.

Baya: Woman of Algiers - Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition. Woman of Algiers reexamines Baya's career within Surrealist, "outsider," and North-African post-colonial art contexts.

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through April 07, 2018 - New York

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will plac... (read more)

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the m... (read more)

Exhibition: the Tredwell Book Collection and the Changing 19th Century Culture of Books - Merchant's House Museum
Through April 30, 2018 - New York

Religion, biography, poetry, and fiction followed.

Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker - 9/11 Memorial Museum
Through May 01, 2018 - New York

“Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker" is an exhibition of 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine spanning more than four decades of the evolving New York City skyline. The exhibition takes visitors through the magazine’s depictions of the city’s experience as the Twin Towers were constructed and stood as icons of the city, their sudden absence when they were destroyed, the widely felt grief and anxieties in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, their commemoration in the years that followed, and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site now home to The New Yorker and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. The exhibition will run through May 2018 in the museum’s South Tower Gallery.

Tennessee Williams: No Refuge but Writing - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 13, 2018 - New York

One of the greatest American playwrights of the twentieth century, Tennessee Williams (1911–1983) was a master of language and a tireless craftsman. This exhibition focuses on Williams's career during the years 1939–1957, when he authored such masterpieces as The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The show examines his creative process and his involvement with the production of his plays, along with their reception and lasting impact. Uniting his original drafts, private diaries, and personal letters with paintings, photographs, production stills, and other objects, the exhibition tells the story of one man's struggle for self-expression and how it changed the landscape of American drama.

Rebel Spirits: Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr - New York Historical Society
Through May 20, 2018 - Upper West Side

But by the time they were killed within two months of each other in 1968, their worlds had come together. Images taken by some of the most renowned photojournalists of the era?alongside original correspondence, publications, and ephemera?illustrate the overlapping trajectory of their lives, exploring their deepening tie as well as how their interests expanded beyond civil rights and organized crime to encompass shared concerns for the poor and opposition to the war in Vietnam.

Peter Hujar: Speed of Life - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 20, 2018 - New York

With Speed of Life, the Morgan presents the first in-depth retrospective of the New York-based photographer Peter Hujar (1934–1987). Drawn from the extensive holdings of the artist's work at the Morgan and from nine other collections, the exhibition and its catalog explore the artist's full career, from his beginnings in the mid-1950s to his central role in the East Village art scene three decades later. Hujar's sharp, serene, square-format photographs confer gravity on the object of his attention, granting it an eternal moment's pause within the rush of passing time. Hujar focused on the spark of encounter between himself and his subject, be it a goose, a lover, an underground theatrical performer, the dappled surface of the Hudson River, or the placid features of his own face. In early adulthood Hujar worked as a studio assistant to magazine professionals and spent years in Italy with two successive partners, artists Joseph Raffael and Paul Thek. His short career in fashion photography ended in 1971, when Hujar decided the hustle of magazine work "wasn't right for me." After moving into a loft above a theater at Twelfth Street and Second Avenue in 1973, Hujar pursued a boh... (read more)

Compass Song - Times Square
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Artists Mendi + Keith Obadike have stretched fragments of music, poetry, stories, and myths across the pedestrian plazas and surrounding blocks in all four cardinal directions, for visitors to discover whether they’re exploring the neighborhood or simply on their way to work. The result is Compass Song, a free app-based public sound artwork inspired by Times Square’s rich history as the Crossroads of the World that officially launches Wednesday, July 12th. Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Ti... (read more)

Derrick Adams: Sanctuary - MAD Museum of Art and Design
Through August 12, 2018 - Columbus Circle

Derrick Adams is a New York–based, multidisciplinary artist working in performance, video, sound, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the force of popular culture and the media on the perception and construction of self-image.Derrick Adams: Sanctuary is an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, and mixed-media collage and assemblage on wood panels that reimagine safe destinations for the black American traveler during the mid-twentieth century. The body of work was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, an annual guidebook for black American road-trippers published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1966, during the Jim Crow era in America.

Susan York Foundation - The Drawing Center
Through October 18, 2018 - Soho

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center's Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum's 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum's foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum's ground floor. York's long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center's building, York's installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence
