Remembering the Future: Architecture at the 1964/65 New York World's Fair - AIA New York | Center for Architecture
October 07, 2018 - New York

World's Fairs have for years offered the chance for architects to explore new concepts and technologies to?create memorable, visceral experiences for a broad public. Structures designed for the 1964/65 New York World's Fair were emblematic of a turbulent period for both architecture and society. Conceived at the dawn of the Space Age, the Fair opened as the country was coming to terms with civil rights and technological and social upheaval. At the World's Fair, Modern architecture met Pop Art. On this tour, held on the anniversary of the opening of the Fair, we examine extant architecture from the Fair, including Philip Johnson's New York State Pavilion, Wallace Harrison's Hall of Science, and modern sculpture by Peter Muller Monk, Jose de Rivera, and others, while exploring that memorable, controversial exposition.?

LPR X: Django Django - (Le) Poisson Rouge
October 12, 2018 - New York

The Shacks. Fronted by 20-year-old singer/bassist Shannon Wise and 21-year-old guitarist/producer Max Shrager, The Shacks are already well on their way to becoming one of the year's big breakouts, and their remarkable debut album, 'Haze,' solidifies their status as a band with ability to deliver on the well-deserved buzz. When Max and Shannon met in high school, a bond was created that has permeated their music since the Shacks first incarnation four years ago. That chemistry lies at the heart of 'Haze,' a record so hypnotic and seductive that it feels more like a whispered late-night secret than a young band's debut. Produced together by Shrager and Big Crown co-founder Leon Michels (who's played with Bradley, Sharon Jones, and Fields in addition to working with The Arcs, Lana Del Rey, and countless others), the album was recorded in bits and pieces between Shrager's basement and Michels' Diamond Mine studio, which the Observer dubbed "the Shangri La of Soul." 'Haze' opens with the title track, which is, appropriately enough, the first song Shrager and Wise ever wrote together. It's a spare, smoky tune that shimmers and sparkles as it shifts in and out of focus, and it's an ... (read more)

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

Great Shipwrecks of New York's 'Great' Lakes and the Hidden Hulks of New York Harbor Exhibits - Hudson River Park's Pier 25 (Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays)
Through October 31, 2018 - Manhattan

New York Sea Grant's Shipwrecks of New York's 'Great' Lakes makes its New York City debut and will remain at Lilac through July 4 before making a return appearance at the New York State Fair. This exhibit celebrates the work of marine archeologists and highlights wrecks in upstate lakes, not only Lakes Erie and Ontario but Lake George, Lake Champlain and others. It will be accompanied at Lilac by The Hidden Hulks of New York Harbor curated by Mary Habstritt with contributions from Norman Brouwer, Joan H. Geismar, Elizabeth Meade, Lynn Rakos, Margaret Stocker, and Gerald Weinstein. This new exhibit looks at how and why local archeologists and historians study the abandoned hulks of the harbor and features some of the well-known ship graveyards and hulls found along our shorelines including those found underground at the World Trade Center site. We'll also be screening the documentary Graves of Arthur Kill in the crew mess. Lilac will be open to view the exhibits and tour the ship from 2:00 to 7:00 Saturdays and Sundays and 4:00 to 7:00 on Thursdays through October. This year, we are celebrating Lilac's 84th birthday. She was launched on May 26, 1933.
