Yve Laris Cohen - Performance Space New York
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Traversing dance and visual art, Laris Cohen’s work explores the relationship between the two fields, tracking their overlapping and divergent techniques and structures of support.

For the opening of Performance Space New York’s new theater, Laris Cohen’s new work, P.S.122, maps aesthetic and political fault lines among the building’s tenants over the past 40 years, bringing discrete groups into ambivalent collaboration.

Stomp - Orpheum Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Stomp is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes—and yes, even the kitchen sink. There's no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

Illustrated Lecture: Journey of Hope: the Irish in New York with Tara Ryder, Ph.D - Merchant's House Museum
March 13, 2018 - New York

To escape religious persecution and decades of poverty and famine, waves of Irish immigrants arrived in New York from the 18th century on. By the mid-19th century, one quarter of the City's population was Irish. Many Irish women and girls found jobs as live-in servants for New York's wealthy citizens, the Tredwells among them. It is a compelling story: they typically emigrated from Ireland at a young age, were willing to do the work others shunned, and often endured cruel prejudice. Yet, despite it all, these women managed to persevere, and collectively sent millions of dollars home so that their relatives could escape the troubles at home for a better life. The Museum's servants quarters are "arguably the oldest intact site of Irish habitation in Manhattan" (TimeOut New York). Unfortunately, little is known about the Tredwells' four servants besides their names, ages, and place of birth (Ireland), taken from census reports; they themselves left no written record. One thing is certain though: the family's lifestyle of on East 4th Street would have been utterly impossible without them. This talk will take a fascinating multimedia look at the history and culture of the Irish of... (read more)

Gold Coast born and bred, the musically contemplative and soulfully brooding Amy Shark can best be described as the creatively complex girl next door.

Coming in at #2 on triple j's Hottest 100, Amy Shark's "Adore" has also been short-listed for the Top 20 APRA Song Of The Year and has continued to propel her to the centre stage. The track has since surpassed 4 million plus streams and hasn't left the streaming and Shazam charts since release, having most recently entered the ARIA Top 10 singles chart along with its recent accreditation of Gold Sales. Produced by M-Phazes and Cam Bluff, a match made in pop-music heaven, the video clip for the single was shot and directed by Amy herself. "Every photo is at a place that means something to me from my past and my childhood," she explains. "Every shot is taken on the Gold Coast. So the video was shot in my old high school hall (Southport High) and all the outdoor takes are around my old pri... (read more)

Paul Richard: Negative Man - 212 Arts
Through March 14, 2018 - New York

212 Arts is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Paul Richard's work entitled "Negative Man". The exhibit marks the first occasion that Paul's vivid portraiture will be in dialogue with his street work. While his portraiture is elaborate and cerebral, his street art possesses a playful sense of spontaneity and quickness as he manages to capture the quintessential short-hand features of his subjects with nothing more than a dripped contour line of paint. Paul's sidewalk drips have been captivating New Yorkers for over 25 years and have endured with lasting popularity. The recognizability of his work is a testament to Richard's creativity in and out of the gallery and as such has earned him accolades in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Vogue, the Huffington Post, Architectural Digest, and Time Magazine. His collectors have come to include: Marc Jacobs, Beyonce, Jay-Z, John Varvatos, Justin Bieber, Elton John, Gerard Butler, and Christina Aguilera among many others. His work is also in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Art Boston and the Fisher-Landau Museum to name a few.

The Arcadian Wild - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 15, 2018 - New York

Choir class is where all great things begin. Perhaps not a mantra held by many, but it rings true for the members of The Arcadian Wild, a folk trio based in Nashville, TN. Isaac Horn, Lincoln Mick, and Sarah Wood connected through the choral program at Lipscomb University. Exploring a vulnerability and purity of experience achieved through the use of acoustic instruments, The Arcadian Wild layers thoughtful texts expressed in rich three-part harmony overtop arrangements of guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and banjo. In the fall of 2015, The Arcadian Wild released its first full-length, self-titled album. Twelve tracks in all, these songs celebrate the bright spots of life, love, and redemption, while also penetrating honestly and deeply into the darker corners of the heart, and crying out for freedom from entanglement and expectation. Knowing how to live in the tension between health and hurt, joy and sobriety, pleasure and pain is not always easy, but it is necessary for us to do in order to live authentically, and it is something to which The Arcadian Wild aspires in their music.

Kevin Daniel - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
March 16, 2018 - New York

Since childhood, Kevin Daniel has known music was his future. Daniel recalls telling his parents he heard music in his head all the time, and their response was to buy him a keyboard and sign him up for lessons. Since that day, Daniel has spent a lifetime playing music, learning keys, saxophone, drums, guitar, bass, banjo, and even bagpipes along the way, all while singing in any capacity he could. Middle school saxophone quartets turned into high school rock bands before morphing into university symphony and jazz programs. Collegiate highlights include playing horn for DC-based Kill Lincoln, singing alto in the all-male a capella group Emocapella, and playing in the GWU blues band throughout the DC area. After spending years of making music in a host of genres, including everything from big swing bands to bluegrass quartets, Kevin Daniel started his solo career in 2013 with the release of his inaugural EP, FLY. Two decades of performing, writing, and recording had prepared Daniel to record and perform his own original music, while the sudden loss of his mother and stepfather provided the motivation to proceed with his dream. Backed by a band of talented musicians, daniel brings... (read more)

Mike Herz - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 16, 2018 - New York

With an uncanny ability to turn a phrase with lyrics that rattle around in your head, New Jersey folk singer Mike Herz writes and performs in a style that is all his own. An aspiring poet long before picking up a guitar, Herz quickly came to the realization that his words could enter more ears if put to a tune. Flash forward years and many miles later and Mike feels most comfortable on stage in front of complete strangers.

Bella's Bartok, Ellis Dyson & The Shambles - Mercury Lounge
March 16, 2018 - New York

To understand Bella's Bartok, imagine what you would get if Salvador Dali and Toulouse Lautrec were fronting the Moulin Rouge's house band, and you have the exuberant spectacle that is Bella's Bartok. Described as "about as much fun as you can have with your pants on" (Dan Wolovick, Two Way Monologues), this 7-piece powerhouse melds Bohemian Klezmer Punk with pop sensibilities into an eminently danceable party. The diversity of musicians that make up Bella's Bartok, combined with their boundless energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or three, but who's counting?). Their sound moves way beyond labels, pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern European music, referencing vaudeville and 20th century eclecticism. The Bella's Bartok line-up includes: Asher Putnam (Vocals and all-around entertainer), Dan Niederhauser (Bass and Vocals), Amory Drennan (Trombone/Banjo and Vocals), Crisco (Drums/Percussion and Trumpet), Alex Kogut (Accordion/Keyboard), and Gershon Rosen (trumpet). The band has shared the stage with musicians and acts such as Rubblebucket, Red Baraat, The Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, K... (read more)

Happy Hour Comedy with Herron Entertainment - Eastville Comedy Club
March 17, 2018 - New York

Chris Kasper - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 17, 2018 - New York

"Nothing cuts to the core like a simple song," says Chris Kasper. More than a dozen years into his acclaimed career, the singer/songwriter gets back to the bluesy basics with his fifth album, O, the Fool. Inspired by Delta blues, folk music, and the string arrangements of Hollywood film scores, O, the Fool was recorded on both ends of an 800-mile move that took Kasper from Philadelphia to Nashville. He'd already spent much of his adulthood on the road, traveling from city to city, building his fanbase one show at a time. Meanwhile, back at home, his friends were putting down roots and starting families of their own. Kasper couldn't help but question his own choices, and it's that swirl of contrasting feelings — uncertainty, determination, and wanderlust — that fuels O, the Fool. "It's about traveling," he says of the 13-song, self-produced album, "and then second-guessing your travels once you've arrived at your destination. It's about coming to terms with the thing that makes you think, 'Ok, maybe this isn't the right place for me, but I am here, so I should make it work. This is where life has brought me.'" The album's title was born during a coffeeshop meeting with a fr... (read more)

Shane Smith & The Saints, Flatland Cavalry - Mercury Lounge
March 17, 2018 - New York

Play just the first 10 seconds of "The Mountain," which opens Geronimo, the latest and most ambitious release from Shane Smith & The Saints. Robust a cappella, four-part harmonies set the stage for a saga of family tragedy, a young son's revenge and a blaze burning eternally in a Pennsylvania mine. The vivid lyrics, powerful vocals and thumping four-beat drums throughout this song are reason enough for lovers of creative roots music to celebrate. From their home base in Austin through performances across the country (17 states) and abroad (Ireland), these five gentlemen have not just stuck stubbornly to their musical and lyrical convictions. They've defied audience expectations by delivering incendiary shows, each one ignited by the band's ability to unleash, feed from and feed back the energy of the crowd — in spite of the fact that they don't fit easily into any musical category.

"Extreme Weather" - La Mama E.T.C.
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

"Extreme Weather" was developed by theater three collaborative, in a series of readings and workshops at the Cherry Lane Theater. The producers feel that, as opposed to 2014, when climate change was more theoretically foreseen, "Extreme Weather" is now a play whose time has come. "The play is no longer bringing the news," says playwright Malpede, "it is only reflecting it."

Red Sun Rising - Mercury Lounge
March 20, 2018 - New York

Rock music should be built to last. Since its genesis, the genre has been all about longevity not a "flavor of the month" or a "flash in the pan." Whether you go back to the seventies or nineties pillars, the goal was to create something that can be lived with for a lifetime. It still can be that way. Akron, Ohio's Red Sun Rising—Mike Protich [vocals/guitar], Ryan Williams [guitar], Dave McGarry [guitar/vocals], Ricky Miller [bass/vocals], and Pat Gerasia [drums]. —proudly carry on that tradition with their full-length debut, Polyester Zeal [Razor & Tie]. "It's not today's rock, but it's a new alternative," declares singer and guitarist Mike Protich. "We want to uphold the foundation with subtle nuances of what's familiar. It's fresh because we're telling our story through that framework." Sharing that story has been the goal since first breaking onto the scene in 2012. Akron is no stranger to rock 'n' roll, serving as home to everybody from Black Keys and Devo to Chrissie Hynde. That buzzing industrial landscape remains fertile ground for musicians to this day. "A lot of people don't realize that Akron's a really cool, artsy community," says Mike. "There's great food, local beers,... (read more)

Irish Mythen - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 22, 2018 - New York

True power inspires awe, and Irish Mythen packs a lot of it – lyrical, musical, and personal – into a relatively small frame. Mythen is a globetrotting troubadour – an Irish-born, contemporary Canadian folk artist who's been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents over the years. Her presence and charisma simply command attention, and regardless of where she takes the stage, she delivers a sonic and emotional experience that transcends language and location; that reaches the very core of what connects us. It's an experience that, in recent years, has earned her spots performing alongside Rod Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot, Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams and Melissa Etheridge and billings on major festival stages the world over. Perhaps most significant of those other facets is her live show – an impactful and impressive tour-de-force that finds Irish combining her contemporary and catchy anthems with traditional tunes borrowed from her homeland. All are woven together with a signature blend of edgy humour and heartfelt storytelling while her presence and performance magnetically draw eyes and ears towards the small-statured powerhouse on stage.

Robbing Johnny Ransom Pier - Mercury Lounge
March 25, 2018 - New York

The Harlem-based band formed in 2014 while Pat was putting out rap music with Analog Rascals and John was doing solo singer/songwriter gigs in NYC. They started writing and playing parties as a duo. Jordan joined the band in early 2015 after graduating from Berklee College of Music and starting his masters in percussion at NYU. His use of acoustic percussion and electronic beats made the sound hit harder. Add Pat's high school bandmate, Evan Harris, on electric guitar and Jordan's Berklee class mate, John MaHoney, on the bass, and a full band was built around the raw tunes. Their debut release, Cynical Son EP, is available online everywhere. Ransom Pier's music offers listeners a combination of potent lyricism and technical prowess that places them firmly among the highest echelon of young acts along the Eastern seaboard. Their brand of rock draws unabashedly on the roots of the American songbook - from Dylan to Motown - with an ear to the future, and has been compared to a darker, edgier Lake Street Dive.

Gang of Youths - The Bowery Ballroom
March 25, 2018 - New York

The holiness of love, the chaos and rapture of surviving against all odds, these are what drive Gang of Youths. A five piece from Sydney founded in the confines of their religious youth, enchanted by the spectacle of worship and deliverance, it's no wonder their music burns with the desperation of apocalypse. With singer Dave Le'aupepe's lyrics drawn from some of the most miserable life experiences available to humanity, and the band's music taking cues from rock history's most ambitious and theatrical preachers, Gang of Youths drag the beauty out of everything from hell to high heaven. Debuting in 2013 with smoldering single "Evangelists," they were met with instant radio play and praise. Only just out of high school, Le'aupepe was already planning to marry his girlfriend, settle down, and leave his dreams of music behind, but the band's first brush with recognition suggested there could be more to life than the path that had seemed so obviously laid before him. Things moved quickly: the band started their own record label, Mosy Recordings, got snatched up for really great support slots with Vampire Weekend, Foster The People, Manchester Orchestra, Frightened Rabbit. But as so... (read more)

Fedor Chistyakov - Joe's Pub at The Public
March 25, 2018 - New York

Since the early 1990's, FEDOR (Fedor Chistyakov) has been known as the songwriter, front singer, and accordionist for the band Nol' (Zero), a cult model of Russian rock music. His unique manner of singing and the fact that he played button accordion, an instrument atypical of rock music at the time, made the band stand out, to the extent of being featured as exemplary in Western documentaries on Russian Rock. He is at the same time quite a sophisticated and insightful composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist musician, whose creative interests embrace rethinking classics and producing experimental instrumental music of many genres and styles.

Set to pop, soul, rock and disco, this immersive performance piece removes the barrier between artist and audience through inquiry, story and song.

Kings - The Public Theater
Through March 25, 2018 - New York

Playwright Sarah Burgess (Dry Powder) and Tony-winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton, Tiny Beautiful Things, Dry Powder) team up again for KINGS, a hilariously blistering new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic. Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn't waste her time on anyone who can't get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career. But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in? KINGS is a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

When writing about myself I would always start by saying that I was 'originally from the North of England'… in fact that's not true but I grew up there from age 5 in Newcastle, famous for its coals and shipbuilding. The place was grimy, cold and hard but full of character and culture, with many theaters and concert venues and legendary clubs. Newcastle was frequented by the likes of Bob Dylan (Don't Look Back) and Jimi Hendrix (his manager Chas Chandler, bassist for the famed Newcastle Band The Animals was a true Geordie and my father was his headmaster!) I love the English movie Get Carter set in Newcastle and starring a young Michael Caine, it really reflects well a lot of what this once Roman Northern garrison town was about. There was so much legendary live music when I was a teenager and by the time I was 14 years old I was playing and singing around town in a blues band with my brother Roger. So I went to jazz college and took up the tenor saxophone along with playing the piano and singing. After a few years playing in London and listening to Sly Stone, Parliament Funkadelic and Quincy Jones, I knew I just wanted to be in America….so I came – because I got the chance! M... (read more)

The Strypes - Mercury Lounge
March 26, 2018 - New York

The first thing you notice on seeing The Strypes play is what a phenomenal live band they are, wailing and howling and strutting like a raw rhythm and blues band. The second thing you notice is the crowd -- recently, the band have been packing out rooms around the country, and with audiences flecked with rock royalty. And the third thing you notice is their age. The Strypes are a proper phenomenon. Four boys aged 15 and 17, they are players with chops way beyond their years, the hard-earned result of years spent honing their craft in Irish pubs, hotels and music halls, where they'd often play for up to two and a half hours at a time. "The Irish pub band ethos is play for really long, or you're no good," says guitarist Josh. "And sometimes there'd be five people there, and they'd just want to hear play 'Whiskey In The Jar'," says drummer Evan. "So we developed a trick to make them pay attention -- we play really LOUD!" Bassist Pete O'Hanlon, drummer Evan Walsh and guitarist Josh McClorey have known each other as long as they can remember, growing up together in Cavan, a small, pleasant, working class town near the border with Northern Ireland. And for just as long, they've ... (read more)

Courtney Marie Andrews - Mercury Lounge
March 27, 2018 - New York

Courtney Marie Andrews At just 16 years old, Courtney Marie Andrews left home in Arizona for her first tour. She traveled up and down the West Coast, busking and playing any bars or cafés that would have her. Soon after, she took a Greyhound bus four nights straight from Phoenix to New York to do the same on the East Coast. For a decade or so since, Courtney's been a session and backup singer and guitarist for nearly 40 artists, including Damien Jurado. She never stopped writing her own material, though. Picking up admirers like Jurado and Ryan Adams along the way, she has quietly earned a reputation as a songwriter's songwriter. With plans to settle down for a bit and focus on her own songs, Courtney moved to the Northwest in 2011 to record her last full-length record On My Page. However, the record had hardly been released before she was on the road again performing other artists' songs, eventually leading her overseas to play guitar and sing with Belgian star Milow. At the tour's end, though, the other session players joined her to record her 2014 EP Leuven Letters in one take.

Power, poise and passion reign supreme in this pairing of voice and strings that celebrates the legendary – and at times uncharted – canon of Nina Simone.

"Drea d'Nur, who created, produced and directed the riveting production [The Spirit of Nina] brought together a phenomenal group of artists in an unforgettable tribute to one of America's most important and conscientious artists, Nina Simone. There were at least four, well-deserved, standing ovations. Drea did beautiful justice to some of Nina's most memorable and important songs in her own amazing soul-stirring style.

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.

The Low Road - The Public Theater
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring sixteen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.

'Fourth Floor' with Miguel Zenon - The Stone
April 05, 2018 - New York

The Weather Station - Mercury Lounge
April 05, 2018 - New York

"Timeless... Measured, perceptive storytelling. A singer with an unmistakable & communicative voice, able to convey hope & hurt with equal clarity." – Pitchfork The Weather Station is the fourth—and most forthright—album by The Weather Station, the project of Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman. Her most fully realized statement to date, it is a work of profound urgency, artistic generosity, and joy. Self-titled and self-produced, the album unearths a vital new energy from Lindeman's acclaimed songwriting practice, marrying it to a bold new sense of confidence. "I wanted to make a rock and roll record," Lindeman explains, "but one that sounded how I wanted it to sound, which of course is nothing like rock and roll." The result is a spirited, frequently topical tour de force that declares its understated feminist politics, and its ambitious new sonic directions, from its first moments. On past records, Lindeman has been a master of economy. Here her precisely detailed prose-poem narratives remain as exquisitely wrought as ever, but they inhabit an idiosyncratic, sometimes disorderly, and often daring album that feels, and reads, like a collection of obliquely gut-punching short stori...

Sorority Noise - The Bowery Ballroom
April 05, 2018 - New York

"I don't want to be in an emo band anymore," proclaims SORORITY NOISE frontman Cameron Boucher. "But I have no problem with people calling us that, because in the strictest of senses, we are an emotionally driven band." That, is Sorority Noise in a nutshell: part of a movement, but also discrete and determined to break free from the pack. Truth be told, the Connecticut-based quartet—Boucher, guitarist/vocalist Adam "Scuff" Ackerman, bassist/vocalist Ryan McKenna and drummer Charlie Singer—have always operated a little differently than most of their peers. For starters, Boucher attended the University of Hartford for jazz saxophone, while guitarist Ackerman studies acoustics and upright bass. But it's not just their unorthodox musical chops that set the band apart in the underground punk scene. With the release of their Topshelf Records debut, JOY, DEPARTED, Sorority Noise—recently named one of the 100 Bands You Need to Know in 2015 by Alternative Press—are poised to break out in a big way. Joy, Departed is more than just the best iteration of Sorority Noise to date; the album also marks a creative shift for Boucher, who draws musical influence from a diverse crop of acts s...

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist - Grey Art Gallery
Through April 06, 2018 - New York

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

We Are a Masterpiece - 14 Street Y
April 08, 2018 - New york

During the AIDS crisis, patchwork families were formed; friends and co-workers becoming brothers and mothers, stepping into the holes that their family members left. When Joan meets John, an unlikely friendship blossoms between them. Seeing he's alone, she invites him into her home. John has been abandoned by his partner and family--in addition to finding solace in Joan--he forms friendships with her daughter and Tom, the janitor at the hospital, as he races to finish a masterpiece and to heal the broken pieces of his heart before he dies.Retro Productions is a New York City based, critically acclaimed and award-winning non-profit indie theatre company now in it's 13th Season.

Superchunk - The Bowery Ballroom
April 08, 2018 - New York

The urgency of current events after the demoralizing 2016 election gave Mac, Laura, Jim, and Jon of Superchunk the momentum to make something new sooner than later. "It would be strange to be in a band, at least our band, and make a record that completely ignored the surrounding circumstances that we live in and that our kids are going to grow up in." Enter What a Time to Be Alive, Superchunk's first album in over four years. It's a record, says Mac, "about a pretty dire and depressing situation but hopefully not a record that is dire and depressing to listen to." Indeed, like so much of Superchunk's music in the band's nearly three decades together, the songs on What a Time to Be Alive meet rage and anxiety head-on with the catharsis and exhilaration of loud punk fire and vulnerable pop energy. Like 2013's I Hate Music, which focused on death, loss, and the role of music in an aging life, What a Time to Be Alive brings spirit to the frontlines of pain—it's as defiant as it is despairing, as much a call to arms as a throwing up of hands. Written almost entirely between November 2016 and February 2017, What a Time to Be Alive was recorded and mixed by Beau Sorenson, who also w... (read more)

Dr. John Cooper Clarke - Joe's Pub at The Public
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

Dr. John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original 'people's poet'. Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today's pop culture. Aside from his trademark 'look' continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 recent global number 1 albums - with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M Album. His latest show, touring across the UK, USA, Canada & Australasia, is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat - a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game. "John Cooper Clarke uses words like Chuck Berry uses guitar riffs melody and anger, humour and disdain in equal measure. He's the real deal, really funny and... (read more)

Kathy Acker: Who Wants to Be Human All the Time - Performance Space New York
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

In 1974, 26-year-old Kathy Acker met the conceptual artist Alan Sondheim, and suggested a collaboration that would allow them to get to the bottom of their sexual attraction by exchanging “as much information about ourselves as possible.” The result is Blue Tape, an hour-long, highly charged and confrontational truth-and-sex tape. It is remarkable for its braveness, as well as the insight it gives into a young Acker, about to find her voice on sexuality, intimacy, family, and power relations–all themes that consistently recur throughout her oeuvre. For this group exhibition, Blue Tape will be shown next to works by contemporary artists in dialog with Acker.

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time - Lesley Heller
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its en... (read more)

Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

Conflating narrative tropes and methods from television sitcoms, theater, science fiction, mythology, and anthropology, Mellors writes the scripts for each of his projects, which he also directs, edits, and produces. His raucous films feature a book-eating creature named "The Object" who literally digests a family's library in Ourhouse (2010–ongoing); a Neanderthal in perpetual free-fall over the San Joaquin Valley in Neanderthal Container, (2014); and two messianic beings, in the form of a cardboard box and a giant egg, who attempt to make sense of a culture that they created millions of years prior in The Aalto Natives (2017, in collaboration with Erkka Nissinen, originally conceived for the Finnish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale). For his exhibition at the New Museum, Mellors will create a new environment including video projection and animatronic sculpture. "Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks" is curated by Margot Norton, Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historicall... (read more)

Alexandra Pirici - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

Her new project for the New Museum takes the form of an ongoing action with live performers and one holographic performer. The project approaches the concept of presence in an expanded sense, focusing in particular on its increasing dispersion. In Pirici's ongoing action—conceived especially for the New Museum's South Galleries—presence is revealed in a variety of ways: as physical body as well as artificial stand-in, avatar, and ghost, taking on the character of a memorial or monument; as image and abstraction of the living subject into quantifiable, monetizable data; and as the expanded life of "dead" objects in museum collections—using the presence of live performers to challenge their stable state and static interpretation. This new work continues Pirici's recent interrogations into the collective body through choreographies that link different temporal and spatial events in real time. In the work, performers embody amalgamated parts, intersecting with each other yet separately manipulable. Pirici's project attempts to enact the dispersion of presence and to comment on contemporary processes of abstraction that separate sign from substance and image from material support. Prop...

Sara Magenheimer - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

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

Over the course of the their almost 100-year residency on East 4th Street, the Tredwells collected 314 books. These volumes, many inscribed, provide a glimpse into the family's interests, tastes, and intellectual pursuits over the century. It is not surprising that the most common subject/genre of literature is education, including foreign languages, since books in the 19th century were meant to be studied. Religion, biography, poetry, and fiction followed.
