Peter Valera & The Jump Blues Band - BB King Blues Club & Grill
February 11, 2018 - New York

"Don't worry if you can't get a seat close to saxophonist Peter Valera. When he is busy blowing the blues, Valera is liable to leap off the stage and wade into the crowd, moving as fast as the music pouring out of his horn. But that's not surprising: This is not Muzak or easy-listening. This is get-up-and-move music, blues played in a white-hot fury, volume and energy cranked up all the way to 11. Backed by the soulful Jump Blues Band, Valera doesn't so much play the saxophone as let it sing, unleashing a range of emotions and experiences too rich and wonderful for mere words to convey. Experience it yourself when this remarkable musician -- who just released his first record Jump Blues heats things up at Lucille's Grill at B.B. King Blues Club."

Dance Theatre of Harlem celebrates its 49th anniversary with a program that features selections from choreographer Louis Johnson's iconic Forces of Rhythm.

New York Choral Society and Orchestra - Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall
February 11, 2018 - New York

Inspired by the grandeur of the sea, American composer Frank Ticheli's The Shore weaves a score set to David St. John's poetry in which the sea is a metaphor for life's journey. The poetry provides a palette of musical moods evoked by the sea. In Songs of The Fleet, Charles Villiers Stanford deploys his harmonic inventiveness and folk-like melodies to depict the fleet waking at sunrise, ready to set sail, and motionless at dusk.

The Plunderers. 1948. Directed by Joseph Kane - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
February 11, 2018 - New York

The Plunderers. 1948. USA. Directed by Joseph Kane. Screenplay by Gerald Geraghty, Gerald Adams, based on the story by James Edward Grant. With Rod Cameron, Ilona Massey, Adrian Booth, Forrest Tucker. DCP. 87 min. As the market for B Westerns diminished in the late 1940s, Republic turned to bigger budgets and more adult themes for films like this Trucolor oater about a lawman (Rod Cameron) and an outlaw (Forrest Tucker) involved with two seen-it-all saloon girls (Ilona Massey and Adrian Booth).

The Corpse Grinders. 1971. Directed by Ted V. Mikels The Worm Eaters. 1977. Directed by Herb Robins - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
February 11, 2018 - New York

When the East Coast premiere of Worm Eaters was announced for Club 57 in April 1982, Gore Gazette boasted that its producer, Ted V. Mikels, could "always be counted on for presenting the best in Grade-Z entertainment." Live worms are indeed consumed in this significantly grosser second half of our schlock double-bill, which delights in shouted performances, cartoonish dramatic situations that outdo Mel Brooks or Laugh-In, and cheesy body-morphing special effects. Lighter on gore, Corpse Grinders is a body-snatcher comedy feeding off the notion that cat food made from human cadavers will give house pets a taste for their owners. Two years later Hollywood would feed humans to humans in Soylent Green, a big-budget action feature with Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson, demonstrating the gradual movement of exploitation-themed fare into the mainstream. The Corpse Grinders. 1971. USA. Directed by Ted V. Mikels. 72 min. The Worm Eaters. 1977. USA. Directed by Herb Robins. 90 min.

Rabid. 1977. Directed by David Cronenberg - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
February 11, 2018 - New York

Rabid. 1977. Canada. Directed by David Cronenberg. 91 min. The irreverent copy for Gore Gazette's screening of the film at Club 57 announced "cataclysmic venereal horror…the entire city of Montreal infected by rabid nymphos." With porn star Marilyn Chambers in the lead, Canadian director David Cronenberg's Rabid contributed significantly to his growing reputation as the master of sci-fi body horror, and gave his work added relevance for downtown moviegoers into the antisocial effects of bod-mod and gender role-playing. In this gruesome feature, "morphogenetic" medical practices on an unconscious accident victim have epidemic consequences that result in civil unrest.

TV Nostomania - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
February 11, 2018 - New York

"Long before Nick at Nite and TV Land, before various 24-hour cable channels devoted to vintage television, before DVD boxed sets of vintage broadcasts, before 'binge-watching' and 'couch potato' were common expressions, there was Jerry Beck and his monthly Club 57 programs featuring vintage TV episodes of odd and obscure television. Beck provided film prints from his own collection, some with the original commercials, others fading red from decomposition, many long unseen in decades, projected in 16mm, along with TV dinners for attendees. Today's screening omits the frozen dinners, but retains the 16mm projectors, Beck's prints, and his presence to explain the importance of these long-forgotten TV obscurities." – Jerry Beck Space Ship Sappy. 1957. USA. Directed by Jules White. With Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Joe Besser, Benny Rubin. 16mm. 16 min. Columbia Pictures CBS Cartoon Theatre. 1956. USA. Directed by Howard Magwood. With Dick Van Dyke. 16mm. 28 min. CBS Captain Z-RO. 1955. USA. Direced by Dave Butler. With Roy Steffens. 16mm. 28 min. Stingray. 1964. Great Britain. Produced by Gerry Anderson. 16mm. 28 min. Captain Nice. 1967. USA. Directed by Gene Reynolds.... (read more)

With guitarist Mario Adnet, drummer Rafael Barata, pianist Vitor Gonçalves, bassist Eduardo Belo, reeds player Eduardo Neves Composer, arranger, producer, and guitarist Mario Adnet is a Grammy Award-winning musician and frequent contender at major events like the Latin Grammy Awards, Brazilian Music Awards, and more. While music speaks more loudly than awards, the diversity of his wins and nominations—including Best Classical Album, Best Crossover Album, Best Latin Jazz Album, and Best Arranger—sheds light on the depth of his talent. Adnet is acclaimed for his loving reinventions of Antonio Carlos Jobim's compositions, and Jobim actually recorded one of Adnet's arrangements on his final (Grammy Award-winning) album. The Jobim songbook is one of modern music's most beloved repertoires, and Adnet is one of the most creative and heartfelt artists currently engaging with this special music. He'll be supported by a superb group that includes two fellow musicians joining us from Brazil: drummer Eduardo Neves and guitarist Rafael Barata, the latter of whom recently performed in Rose Theater with international superstar Eliane Elias.

Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father's life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew.

When Jasmine sneaks out of the palace incognito, she forms an instant connection with Aladdin, a charming street urchin and reformed thief. After being discovered together, Aladdin is sentenced to death, but Jafar saves him by ordering him to fetch a lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Where there's a lamp, there's a Genie, and once Aladdin unwittingly lets this one out, anything can happen!

No-No Boy - Theater Row
Through February 11, 2018 - New York

Iconic return in tandem with Day of Remembrance, No-No Boy follows Ichiro as he and his community try to get back on their feet after a war that has uprooted them. Set after World War II as Japanese Americans return to the West Coast, No-No Boy follows Ichiro Yamada, who struggles to reconnect with the Seattle community, after taking a bold stance on questions of allegiance. John Stoltenberg of DC Metro Theater Arts says: "No-No Boy is an extraordinary and essential play. It's about what happened to innocent people when this country demonized and incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. To witness it now—as anti-Muslim rumblings are being trumped up to a roar…I can only urge everyone who cares about how theater connects to this country's past and future to catch Pan Asian Rep's No-No Boy wherever whenever you can."

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical - Stephen Sondheim Theatre
Through February 11, 2018 - New York

The fascinating life of one of pop music's greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann.

Through February 11, 2018 - New York

Jeff Ross The Roastmaster General. A One Man Verbal Assault Unit. Pizza Enthusiast. Jeff can most recently be seen on Comedy Central on the hit show Roast Battle, which aired at the end of July. His new special, Jeff Ross Roasts Cops, aired September 10th on Comedy Central. Jeff Ross is known to the world as the modern day Don Rickles. The King of roasting. Let's face it, if there's a roast and he's not there, it's not a real roast. Growing up in Newark, NJ he took the greatest weapon he had to fight his way out of there. His Mouth. Since then, Jeff has roasted anyone who would accept the challenge. From Criminals, to Soldiers, to Politicians, to Pop Icons. He has no limits, even roasting criminals inside the walls of a maximum security county jail in Texas (check out Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals). Sure some comedians perform in jails, but no other comedian would have it in their right mind to immerse themselves inside a jail for three days, and then invite those same incarcerated people on stage with him to get roasted face-to-face. If he thought criminals were tough, Jeff even roasted Justin Bieber as part of the record breaking Comedy Central Roast, which Jeff also... (read more)

Vignola's jaw-dropping technique explains why the New York Times deemed him "one of the brightest…stars of the guitar". Born on suburban Long Island on December 30, 1965, Vignola was raised in the New York area. The Italian-American started playing the guitar at the age of six and grew up admiring a variety of guitarists. Far from a jazz snob, Vignola never listened to jazz exclusively and was also a major fan of classical, rock, R&B, and pop. The guitarists that he admires range from Django and Les Paul to rock icons like Frank Zappa and Eddie Van Halen. As a young adult, Vignola studied at the Cultural Arts Center of Long Island and went on to enjoy an enormous amount of sideman gigs in the 1980s including recording and touring with the likes of Madonna, Leon Re...

"Jim Caruso's Cast Party is the best thing to happen to nightlife since prohibition ended."Think "American Idol" meets "The Tonight Show." Imagine Martin Short and Liza throw a hip house party around the baby grand…and you're invited! Cast Party is a wildly popular happening that has brought Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night since 2003. It is the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with show folk and the people who love them. Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. Legendary showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan. Musical Director Billy Stritch holds court at the ivories, along with Steve Doyle on bass, and Daniel Glass on drums...but the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Broadway legends, jazzers, cabaret divas, starry-eyed tourists and kids right off the bus take to the stage and entertain each other.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

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.

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic: Funky Fat Tuesday Celebration - BB King Blues Club & Grill
February 13, 2018 - New York

Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the '70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-'60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the '70s, capturing over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums. Inspired by Motown`s assembly line of sound, George Clinton gradually put together a collective of over 50 musicians and recorded the ensemble during the '70s both as Parliament and Funkadelic. While Funkadelic pursued band-format psychedelic rock, Parliament engaged in a funk free-for-all, blending influences from the godfathers (James Brown and Sly Stone) with freaky costumes and themes inspired by '60s acid culture and science fiction.

The Toolbox Murders. 1978. Directed by Dennis Donnelly - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
February 13, 2018 - New York

The Toolbox Murders. 1978. USA. Directed by Dennis Donnelly. 93 min. Grind-zine Gore Gazette creator Rick Sullivan (who died in December 2017) found a receptive audience away from West 42nd Street among the Club 57 cinephiles. Gore Gazette, a myopic and idiosyncratic "handmade" handout devoted to cinema ignored by the conventional filmgoer, screened several movies at the club, and this Cameron Mitchell vehicle was among them. Mitchell had started out in the 1940s working with John Ford in Hollywood, and in the original Broadway production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. Extremely prolific, possibly alcoholic, and bankrupt more than once, Mitchell was sometimes reduced to making Grade-Z product. And he didn't always phone it in. From The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, by Michael Weldon: 'Cameron Mitchell in his ultimate exploitation sickie. As the crazed super of a California apartment building…[his] performance is indescribable.'" (film notes by John Epperson).

February 14, 2018 - New York

Plan 9 From Outer Space. 1959. USA. Directed by Edward D. Wood Jr. 79 min. "Considered by many to be the worst film ever made, this cinematic travesty was a shoo-in to be a staple of The Monster Movie Club, where "bad" was "good" and vice versa. Determined to destroy all humans on Earth, and having failed eight times, aliens are now trying their ninth plan. As if under the remote control of the aliens, recently deceased earthlings become killer zombies in the extremely low-budget mise-en-scéne of beloved transvestite director Edward D. Wood, Jr. The nutty cast includes Bela Lugosi and Vampira. From Bright Lights Film Journal: 'Surely any lousy, boring mainstream movie is worse than the constantly surprising, intensely weird, totally personal, never dull Wood films.'"

Valentines with Maysa - BB King Blues Club & Grill
February 14, 2018 - New York

Often the true mark of a great singer is the ability to take a song and transform it into something unique and undeniably believable. Singer Maysa does just that every time she steps to the microphone. Maysa is a true original. Blessed with a remarkably beautiful and instantly recognizable voice, the vocalist possesses the ability to know just where to take a song and what to do to unearth the heart of it and drive it home. Maysa is a singer who is at home in any musical context whether it be jazz, soul, funk or R&B. She is also a first rate composer. It is no wonder why Jazziz Magazine calls her "One of the most identifiable and consistently enjoyable singers on the scene today!" and why The Baltimore Sun calls Maysa "one of the best singers in underground soul." The songbird, who was a member of Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove, has just nabbed a Soul Train Award for "Soul Approved Underground Singer." For Maysa, singing is truly a labor of love.

Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

1960s: The Crucible of the Postmodern - Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall
February 15, 2018 - New York

Whether challenged by the limits of traditional media or excited by the aesthetic potential of new technology, artists of the 1960s felt the imperative to calibrate their work more closely to real experience and to engage the spectator as never before. New York University Associate Professor Julia Robinson explores how this break with past traditions paved the way for contemporary art today.

February 15, 2018 - New York

1964. USA. Directed by Alfred Santell.

Pedrito Martinez - BB King Blues Club & Grill
February 15, 2018 - New York

Pedro Pablo "Pedrito" Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, Sept 12, 1973. He began his musical career at the age of 11, performing as vocalist and percussionist with such Cuban legends as Tata Guines and Munequitos de Matanzas. He was brought to Canada in 1998, by Jane Bunnett, to tour with her group, Spirits of Havana. His decision to remain in North America to pursue his career, proved to be an auspicious one when, two years later, the annual Thelonious Monk Institute Competition showcased Afro-Latin Hand Drumming for the first time ever.

February 15, 2018 - New York

Legendary music icons, THREE DOG NIGHT, celebrating nearly 5 decades, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than THREE DOG NIGHT.

Too Much Johnson. 1938. Directed by Orson Welles - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
February 15, 2018 - New York

Too Much Johnson. 1938. USA. Directed by Orson Welles. With Joseph Cotten, Ruth Ford, George Duthie, Edgar Barrier. 35mm. Silent. 66 min. Welles's first professional undertaking as a filmmaker was this unfinished project, a silent film in three parts meant to be shown with the Mercury Theatre's 1938 production of William Gillette's 1894 stage farce. Though Welles seems to have completed the editing of only the first seven minutes before the film component of the production was abandoned, the surviving 66-minute work print—discovered in a warehouse in Pordenone, Italy—offers a world of wonderment to Welles, revealing its director to be well on the way to the stylistic advances that would startle the world in Citizen Kane three years later.

Orchestra of St. Luke's - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
February 15, 2018 - New York City

Mozart's final symphonies are pinnacles of Classicism that boldly point to the Romantics. His Symphony No. 40 opens in a state of nervous agitation and culminates in an edge-of-your-seat finale that Wagner called "exuberant with rapture and audacity." The "Emperor" Piano Concerto is grandly virtuosic and heroic in spirit—a towering landmark where Beethoven the master pianist and symphonist are brilliantly fused.

The Boys from Syracuse - Theater Row
Through February 15, 2018 - New York

The Boys from Syracuse Summary The Boys from Syracuse by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart is loosely based upon Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors as adapted by George Abbott who directed it. George Balanchine choreographed the show. Songs include: "Sing for Your Supper", "You Took Advantage of Me", "This Can't Be Love", "Oh, Diogenes!", "What Do You Do With a Man?" and "Falling in Love with Love". Identical twins Antipholus of Ephesus and Antipholus of Syracuse, were separated from each other in a shipwreck as young children. Their servants, both named Dromio, are also long-separated identical twins. When the pair from Syracuse come to Ephesus, a comedy of errors and mistaken identities ensues when the wives of the Ephesians, Adriana and her servant Luce, mistake the two strangers for their husbands. Adriana's sister Luciana and the Syracuse Antipholus fall in love. But all ends happily.

Ganja White Night - PlayStation Theater
February 16, 2018 - New York

Ganja White Night is an electronic music band whose early influences are found at the roots of "Bass-Music". During the past decade, the duo traveled many countries in Europe and beyond. The band takes a new creative direction tinted with hip-hop and more generally hybrid electronic music after the release of their fourth album "Addiction" in 2014. They decided to break the fetters that connected them almost exclusively to "Dubstep" and started using other forms of expression. It is therefore with their new album "Hybrid Distillery" that the group now has to make an impression by imposing its style in other genres of electronic music. This fifth album is not only another acoustic chapter, it is also about graphics. The draftsman/graffiti artist/director "Ebola - Delit2fuite" brings a whole new visual world mixed with, just like Ganja White Night, artistic originality and singularity never achieved until now.

Carla Bruni - The Town Hall
February 16, 2018 - New York

Carla Bruni hasn't just been making music throughout her colorful and singular life; she's also been a fan. The singer-songwriter, since her youth, assembled a trove (in her mind and on vinyl) of all-time sentimental favorites—pop songs forever associated with a person or place or moment in time, the sort of records that she says, borrowing the French term for love at first sight, "have been a coup de foudre." Could a first encounter with Carla Bruni—the woman, the myth, the music—lead to anything less? Coup de foudre more or less describes what happened when Bruni met legendary producer, composer, and musician David Foster after an L.A. performance in 2014. The two instantly hit it off, and Foster volunteered to produce Bruni's next record on the spot. "But my music is so French," Bruni recalls with a laugh. "So he said to me, 'what about some English songs?' But I can't write in English; I'd love to, but it doesn't come." The solution, arrived upon after a series of trans-Atlantic demo swaps and shaped during twin recording sessions in Paris and L.A., was for Bruni to reinterpret her all-time favorite pop songs—the songs, in other words, that the world's most seductive w...

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.

No-No Boy - Theater Row
February 17, 2018 - New York

Iconic return in tandem with Day of Remembrance, No-No Boy follows Ichiro as he and his community try to get back on their feet after a war that has uprooted them. Set after World War II as Japanese Americans return to the West Coast, No-No Boy follows Ichiro Yamada, who struggles to reconnect with the Seattle community, after taking a bold stance on questions of allegiance. John Stoltenberg of DC Metro Theater Arts says: "No-No Boy is an extraordinary and essential play. It's about what happened to innocent people when this country demonized and incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. To witness it now—as anti-Muslim rumblings are being trumped up to a roar…I can only urge everyone who cares about how theater connects to this country's past and future to catch Pan Asian Rep's No-No Boy wherever whenever you can."

John Stoltenberg of DC Metro Theater Arts says: "No-No Boy is an extraordinary and essential play.

Through February 19, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of inte...

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art
Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, ...

Stephen Shore - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through May 28, 2018 - New York

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist's work of the last five decades, during which he has conducted a continual, restless interrogation of image making, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms. One of the most significant photographers of our time, Stephen Shore (American, b. 1947) has often been considered alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography, digital printing, and social media. The artist's first survey in New York to include his entire career, this exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore's work, and demonstrate his singular vision—defined by an interest in daily life, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches, a strong intellectual underpinning, a restrained style, sly hum...

Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through June 03, 2018 - New York

Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1886–1973) is a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. The first exhibition in the United States exclusively devoted to the artist focuses on her pivotal production from the 1920s, from her earliest Parisian works, to the emblematic modernist paintings produced in Brazil, ending with her large-scale, socially driven works of the early 1930s. The exhibition features over 130 artworks, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and other historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Born in São Paulo at the turn of the 19th century, Tarsila?as she is affectionately known in Brazil?studied piano, sculpture, and drawing before leaving for Paris in 1920 to attend the Académie Julian. Throughout subsequent sojourns in Paris, she studied with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes, and Fernand Léger, fulfilling what she called her "military service in Cubism," ultimately arriving at her signature painterly style of synthetic lines and sensuous volumes depicting landscapes and vernacular scenes in a rich color palette. The exhibition follows her journeys between France and Braz... (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.

The Long Run - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through November 04, 2018 - New York

Innovation in art is often characterized as a singular event—a bolt of lightning that strikes once and forever changes what follows.  “The Long Run” provides an alternate view: by chronicling the continued experimentation of artists long after their breakthrough moments, it suggests that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio.  Each work in this presentation exemplifies an artist’s distinct evolution.  For some, this results from continually testing the boundaries of a given medium, for others it reflects the pressures of social, economic, and political circumstances. Often, it is a combination of both. “The Long Run” includes monographic galleries and rooms that bring together artists broad ranging in background and approach, drawn from MoMA’s collection. All the artists in this presentation are united by a ceaseless desire to make meaningful work, year after year, across decades. They include Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Melvin Edwards, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Joan Jonas, Helen Levitt, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, and many others.
