Holi

Holi is the Hindu festival of colors. It celebrates the coming of spring, fruitful harvests, unity, joy, and a tale from the Bhagavad Gita. In addition to the throwing of colored powder (Holi Gulal) it is traditional to light bonfires in celebration of the miraculous escape that young devotee of the god Vishnu. A demon tried to throw him into a fire, but he escaped without any injuries due to his unshakable devotion. In most areas, Holi lasts about two days. One of Holi’s biggest customs is the loosening strictness of social structures, which normally include age, sex, status, and caste. Holi closes the wide gaps between social classes and brings Hindus together. Together, the rich and poor, women and men, enjoy each other’s presence on this joyous day. Additionally, Holi lowers the strictness of social norms. No one expects the decorum of normal life; as a result, the atmosphere is filled with excitement and joy.

7pm-10pm

HAZMAT MODINE draws from the rich soil of American music of the 20’s and 30’s through to the 50’s and early 60’s, blending elements of early Blues, Hokum Jugband, Swing, Klezmer, New Orleans R & B, and Jamaican Rocksteady. The band is fronted by two harmonicas which use call and response, harmony, melody, and syncopated interweaving rhythms. The band includes tuba, guitar, and percussion, claviola and Hawaiian steel guitar. The band’s sound reflects musical influences ranging from Avant-garde Jazz to Rockabilly and Western Swing to Middle-Eastern, African, and Hawaiian musical styles.

In recognition of Holi, the most celebrated festival in India, Red Baraat is psyched to announce Red Baraat’s 1st Annual Festival of Colors. Traditionally, a bonfire is built (“Holi” means burning) and people throw colored powder at one another, celebrating the end of winter and welcoming spring’s abundant colors. While we can’t throw powder at one another in a club setting, we can certainly all come together in a musical atmosphere filled with excitement and joy. So bring out those colorful outfits and let’s party to some Bhangra Funk!

Speakeasy Dollhouse

http://www.speakeasydollhouse.com/
03/03/2012-06/01/2012
7:30pm-

Inspired by Lee’s miniature crime scene sets, von Buhler decided to create the scenes from her family mystery using her own handmade sets and dolls. Utilizing evidence from autopsy reports, police records, court documents, and interviews, she has built a dollhouse-sized speakeasy, a hospital room, a child’s bedroom, and a pre-war apartment. She also created lifelike dolls with moveable limbs to live in these sets. Taking it to another level, von Buhler has now created an immersive theatrical experience to go along with the sets and her own investigation. The play stages these events in mobster Meyer Lansky’s former Lower East Side speakeasy. The location is elaborately set up to mirror the dollhouse sets from the book. The play’s tagline is “The speakeasy is our dollhouse and the actors are our dolls.”

Spring Break Art Show
http://www.springbreakartshow.com/

03/06/2012-03/11/2012

Featuring the projects of 23 curators, the show will abandon the traditional focus on galleries – offering a “break” from the typical art fair model – and showcase a range of New York City’s curatorial voices, all surrounding a single exhibition theme – Apocalist: A Brief History of The End. Utilizing over 20 classrooms, hallways, and unique areas in one of the city’s oldest schoolhouses, new art works will be on display, arranged by curators representing the more recent creative contributions of the Lower East Side, Williamsburg, Gowanus, and Bushwick. Apocalist, the inaugural fair’s curatorial theme as described by Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly, the co-founders of The They Co. and SPRING/BREAK Art Show, ‘aims to elucidate the sense of direction, disorder, celebration, or disdain generated by real or invented global or personal assumptions of calamity.’

A Proposition by House of Natural Fiber: Intelligent Bacteria

03/08/2012-03/09/2012
-

House of Natural Fiber’s installation IB : EC [Intelligent Bacteria: Eschericia coli], The song of the river (2012) reveals through ecological experimentation how everyday life in Indonesia is impacted by pollution of its water sources. Based on research collected during their project, Code River Expedition (2011), this work is a response to increasing pollution of the sacred Code River, which demarcates the invisible border of Yogyakarta. In the installation, four DIY microscopes connected to projectors magnify bacterial microorganisms present in water samples collected from the river. The water is then purified through a homemade water-filteration system and fed to plants, to demonstrate its purification.

ODD NERDRUM

Odd Nerdrum was born in Sweden in 1944. He studied at The Art Academy in Oslo, Norway and later studied with the conceptual artist Joseph Beuys in Düsseldorf, Germany. Nerdrum developed a style of painting that is unique by any standard. His work is in the permanent collections of several international museums and many American museums including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; The New Orleans Museum, New Orleans, LA; The Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR; The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; The de Young Museum, San Francisco, CA, and The Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA.

UNEARTHISH – Sarah Bernstein/Satoshi Takeishi Duo – at CORNELIA ST CAFE in NYC
http://sarahbernstein.bandcamp.com/
03/09/2012-03/09/2012
6pm-8pm

Beat poets used jazz as a backdrop for their prose but their approach was more parallel than integrative and more deferential than symbiotic. While Unearthish invites that comparison, violinist/poet Sarah Bernstein has instead created compositions that are post-Beat holistic works of art. Her muse is more the performance poetry of Hedwig Gorski than Allen Ginsberg’s Howl set to a soundtrack of Miles or Trane. Bernstein attacks a diverse array of subjects with staccato jibes and jabs that can require some interpretation. “War” is “fear within a square” while “Normality” is feeling that escalates into insanity and is then transformed into normality. Her gift though is the exquisite interlacing of the rhythm and feel of her words with the rhythm and feel of the music. Bernstein’s violin is also a versatile voice and she uses some electronics to shape its sound. Percussionist Satoshi Takeishi is Bernstein’s rhythmical partner on these duets and he has never sounded more at home.

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

03/09/2012-03/10/2012
10:30pm-

Our show is an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes–an original concept by Greg Allen and the Neo-Futurists. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. We always appear as ourselves on stage, speaking directly from our personal experiences. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with twenty-nine other plays through high energy audience participation. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. Each night of performance, we aim to create an unreproducable living newspaper of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, the visceral and experimental.

Second set is Lucio Menegon, Upholstery, Charmaine’s Names, Valerie Kuehne. What’s a Round Robin? – The term round-robin was originally used to describe a document signed by multiple parties in a circle to make it more difficult to determine the order in which it was signed, thus preventing a ringleader from being identified.[1] The term has evolved to account for any activity in which a group of resources is interacted with singularly and in a circular order. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round-robin

As there have been recent, major shifts in how we exchange information, oft using abbreviated modes of communication, Bcc seeks to reflect this sentiment in medium and message.

Daring Feats! Shameless Humor! Occasional Tragedy! Partial Nudity! In this dark, poignantly perverse circus tale Mumbo the Magnificent Monkey rises to fame, learning the ropes from trainer Trixie Petite. But the fate of the circus is always subject to the whims of Monsieur Dingling, whose insatiable greed and volcanic temper threaten Trixie and Mumbo at every twist and turn. Inspired by the pantheon of tragic circus elephant stories (Jumbo, Water for Elephants, Modoc) but told by a “primate” in place of a pachyderm. Starring the award winning acrobatic burlesque superduo- Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey and the master of inappropriate improvisation, Bradford Scobie. With live, original music by Gato Loco- NYC’s grittiest Latin-cartoon-jazz-psychedelic rock band.

Blind Reproduction Opening
http://www.tribes.org/web/events/

03/10/2012-03/10/2012
6pm-9pm

You are cordially invited to what may be the very last art show at Tribes. Inspired by the different descriptions Steve Cannon’s visitors would give of the art on the walls, and by taking the blind professor to art openings, curator Janet Bruesselbach organized an elaborate art and writing project between 26 artists and writers. It aims to consider the subjectivity of attentive visuality in art writing and the absurdity of symbolic imagery. The artists were invited to contribute a small two-dimensional work, and commit to another. Images, titles, size and media information were then assigned to the writers, who were charged with describing the art as thoroughly and sincerely as possible. These descriptions were nearly randomly assigned to the contributing artists, who were tasked with recreating the artwork they thought the writer had described, without knowing the artist or seeing the original image.

On Saturday, March 10, come join us and bands aplenty from all across Brooklyn to give raw music man and banjo virtuoso Morgan O’Kane a walk-on-water kind of sendoff as he prepares to leave behind the concrete jungle of New York for his Sail Away concert voyage, a month-long seafaring tour up the East Coast. In mid-April—with fiddler Ferd Moyse, Dobro picker and all-around rouser Zeke Healy, and spoons player Liam Crill—O’Kane will board a 36ft sailboat in the Florida Panhandle and begin the four-week tour. The boat, aptly named Fiddler’s Green, will be skippered by the band’s own Moyse, who inherited the vessel from his late father.

The title of the exhibition refers to a strategy used by preachers to examine different aspects of complex ideas. Just as one might inspect the facets of a diamond by turning it over in the light, Davis offers his viewers multiple possibilities for understanding his narrative intentions. While contemplating subjects such as wealth, collapse, futility and hubris, he creates a diverse population of oligarchs, imposters, subversives, scientists, African soldiers, TV journalists, insurance adjusters, and “various types of frauds and charlatans.” In a formal departure from the flat patterning and ordered geometry of his earlier work, many of the recent paintings are newly energized by circular compositions and spiraling vortex-like structures. In Curriculum Vitae (2011) Davis stages a vainglorious celebration around concentric banquet tables.

Alasdair Duncan makes colour saturated graphic Signs for the Future. Recalling the lexicon of our designed world, Duncan’s signs are stand-ins, signifying things that do not yet exist: not futurological predictions, rather they are emblems of the not yet imagined. They are familiar, but withhold their intentions; indeterminate yet full of promise. They often sink into their own representational space, or logical game.

Eric “Monty” Morris is recognized in Jamaica, alongside Laurel Aitken and Derrick Morgan as a primal ska performer. In 1961 he recorded a medley of nursery rhymes as “Humpty Dumpty” providing the vocals to Arkland Drumbago Parks All Star Band’s shuffling beat. The song proved a phenomenal success and is regarded as pivotal in the progress of Jamaican music, introducing the emphasis on the half beat in comparison to earlier local recordings which simply mirrored American R&B.

-

Fowler Arts Collective is pleased to present Buy Local, an exhibition featuring new work by Brooklyn and Philadelphia artists Susan Fang, Maria Rajewksi, Samuel Stabler, and Brian Willmont. These four artists make works that explore subject matter as varied as the magic and melancholy of objects, awkwardness and fleeting moments of failure, vaganuses and octipenises, and the construction of a new American folktale. Buy Local, timed to coincide with New York’s greatest marketplace for contemporary art, The Armory Show, acknowledges that while all of the work in the exhibition has been made with the zeal of an art-for-art mentality, at the end of the day it would be nice to sell something. Taking it’s name from the retail movement, Buy Local aims to showcase exciting new art with the hopes that maybe, just maybe, we’ll at least break even.

very special presentation of a fascinating poetry/video/trace your roots kind of show from our friends at vvitalny. Join us for an evening of re-invention, interaction and some really good poetry. Oh, and there will be borscht. Because you can’t host a remotely Polish event without it. “I am a problem…I am problem. Like the bear and the shark and the wind.” – Bob Holman Po Prostu Milosz is a series of videos in which vvitalny explores the politics of writing and the “Polish school of poetry” through conversations – about legendary Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz – with leading American poets Bob Holman, Jane Hirshfield and Robert Pinsky. These videos form the nucleus of a larger multimedia project where the anxiety of influence is a legacy we celebrate. It begins with the poetry of Miłosz, which echoes in the work of following generations of American poets.

Bruce Brosnan began exhibiting with Feature Inc. in 2000 and See, hear, remember is his fourth one-person exhibition witht he gallery. He lives and works in Brooklyn, has a BFA from Maine College of Art (19915) and an MFA from Hunter College (1998), which is where I first saw his inspired installations. Tyler Vlahovich has a BFA (1989) from California Institute of the Arts and lives and works in Los Angeles. This recent work is his third one-person exhibition with the gallery and coincidentally, we also began working together in 2000.

Simone Leigh: You Don’t Know Where Her Mouth Has Been
http://www.thekitchen.org/event/292/0/1/
02/21/2012-03/11/2012
11am-6pm

Exhibition Hours: Tuesday–Friday, 12–6pm; Saturday 11–6pm Open Sunday, March 11 from 12–6 FREE Curated by Rashida Bumbray This solo exhibition presents the New York premiere of Simone Leigh’s most recent sculptural explorations of materiality, women’s work, and Afrofuturism. Leigh is known for her archaic, anthropomorphic forms in porcelain, terracotta, tobacco, glass, and steel that employ early African ceramic techniques to evoke contemporary parallels and underlying social and economic conditions. For You Don’t Know Where Her Mouth Has Been, Leigh draws from a diverse range of influences, from early African-American face jugs and the manifesto of Africobra to Star Trek and Gilbert and Sullivan in order to evocatively explore the slippages between the multifarious cultural, political, and colonial histories that have laid claim to marginalized bodies.

Evelyn by Nellie Tinder

02/21/2012-03/10/2012
8pm-10pm

A new piece by Nellie Tinder, “Evelyn” is the story of a film star committed to a mysterious mental health facility in the midst of a druidical wood. Told through noir/suspense narrative styling, and scored by a small live orchestra that draws on the movie houses of old, Evelyn is a darkly classic story of the stranger who infiltrates a closed society and tears it apart.

THE DUMPSTER PROJECT
http://www.theinvisibledog.org/?p=8759
02/21/2012-03/31/2012
00pm-00pm

FROM JANUARY 8 Premiering at the DUMBO Arts Festival on September 23, 2011, The Dumpster Project is a work of transportable public art. The Dumpster Project is also a daily blog (www.thedumpsterproject.com). Fundamentally, though, The Dumpster Project is a physical taxonomy of one man’s existence. Mac Premo is a Brooklyn-based collage artist. His longtime Boerum Hill studio was a sanctuary for an assortment of objects accumulated over decades. Included among the hundreds of items are old baseball cards he shared with his dad, the shoes his eldest daughter first walked in, recently extracted wisdom teeth from an eccentric friend, a Persian music mix-tape, and a fortune cookie message that warns him against the pitfalls of relaxation (it reads: ‘You’ve had a good start. Work Harder!’). More than just objects of ephemera, they are participants in Mac’s artistic repertoire that act as both influence and raw material for his body of work.

 Lehmann Maupin Gallery Presents Angel Otero at ISTANBUL’74

02/23/2012-03/17/2012
6pm-9pm

ngel Otero is a visual artist best known for his process-based paintings. While much of his works have been influenced by memories based in photographs and other family memorabilia combined with the gestures of 20th century painting, his latest works highlights the artist’s unique process as a form of narrative in itself. Through his innovative process of oil paint scraping, Otero venerates historical oil painting while confronting it head on. Otero’s ‘deformation’ approach to painting his works, first across glass and then once dry, flaying the dried paint and reconstructing the composition anew across large canvasses, is representative of how the artist perceives the process of reconfiguring both personal and historical narratives. Otero’s work sometimes uses process as a way of confronting deep, personal memories. Instead of representing his life through art, he archives moments within it by creating opportunities of surprise and discovery.

Marcia Hafif: Pomona Houses and Ink Drawings
http://www.npgallery.com/
02/23/2012-04/14/2012
6pm-8pm

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23, 6-8pm Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm The Ink Drawings were painted using a practice developed during the making of the Pencil Drawings, 1972, always beginning in the upper left corner and finishing in the lower right. The support and medium change while the technique remains the same. Here the ink mixture is more or less diluted, with darker and lighter results. The technique is based on the idea that repetition will produce changing results; the titles of the drawings are the date of completion – a record of the day’s work.

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23 5 – 7 pm Sears Peyton is pleased to present Fragments of a Worldview, the gallery’s third solo exhibition of New York artist Bo Joseph, on view February 23 – April 5, 2012. This exhibition will feature seven large works on paper, five of which measure nearly seven feet high, from an ongoing series that has been the focus of Joseph’s practice since his return from Berlin in 2009.

CECILIA VISSERS: ULTIMA THULE (THE FAR NORTH)
http://masterspelavin.com/upcoming/
02/23/2012-03/31/2012
6pm-8pm

Masters & Pelavin is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of recent sculptures by Dutch artist, Cecilia Vissers. Inspired by the landscape of ‘the far north’ of Scotland during a trip in 2011, Cecilia decided to focus on the cliffs and extreme edges of land, this is the most north-westerly point in mainland Britain. Isolated and dramatic. This work is an abstraction of the landscape, its purity, color and clear line. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery and in the US.

Allison Gildersleeve: Let Me Show It To You Unfixed
www.asyageisberggallery.com
02/23/2012-04/07/2012
6pm-8pm

February 23 – April 7, 2012 Opening Reception: Thursday February 23, 6 – 8 pm Artist Talk: Saturday March 10, 12 pm Starting with recycled drawings, photographs, and revisited childhood places, Allison Gildersleeve builds an increasing complexity – and like a visual puppetmaster, deftly orchestrates our eyes’ travel in perpetual motion. Rather than a passively-observed vista that reveals itself immediately, she aims to orient the viewer in a specific way. Then she allows the paint to swirl into a deliberate morass, forcing us to constantly lose the thread. Finding parallels in poets such as Wallace Stevens, Gildersleeve fights against a sense of order or stasis, and instead leaves borders undefined, odd juxtapositions of scale, vibrations of lush color and constant mark variation. We see a rock and just as soon have forgotten that cognition, as the patch of grey “rock” quickly erases into paint, movement, dab, or stroke. Often the most clarity is found in an unexpected corner or edge

THE NUDIST MUSEUM GIFT SHOP: ELLEN HARVEY

02/23/2012-04/01/2012
6pm-8pm

A museum is nothing without a gift shop. A museum without nudes is really no fun at all. This the best of all worlds: a museum attached to a gift shop with nothing but nudes. In her inaugural exhibition at DODGEgallery, Ellen Harvey offers several strangely beautiful and hilarious explorations of the art nude that both question and exploit our fascination with depictions of our naked bodies to create an intentionally contradictory and often incoherent model of art as a form of desire. These works which are part of Harvey’s ongoing Museum of Failure, explore the paradox that at a time when no one need resort to figure drawing classes to see naked members of either sex, the popular imagination still clings to the nude as one of the great subjects of art.

Michiel Ceulers
http://www.anacristeagallery.com/
02/23/2012-03/31/2012
11am-6pm

Ana Cristea Gallery is proud to present the first solo show in the United States of the Belgian artist Michiel Ceulers (born 1986). As an artist, Ceulers concentrates on the bare essentials of painting: canvases and wooden panels, paint and spray paint. Ceulers is entirely committed to painting as an ongoing art form, saying in an interview that painting “has been declared dead a few times, but still many people consider painting the most relevant medium.” Part of the impulse associated with the logic of chance the artist submits his canvases to can be seen as an attempt to move beyond from the boundaries of painterly tradition. As a result, the artworks’ origins are not only painterly, they are also conceptual. As stated in the artist’s own words, his “paintings are the result of events that form a chain reaction, so in a way they are larger than the canvases themselves – they are spatial.” Thus, true to himself, Ceulers maintains steady ground, balancing the idiosyncrasies of his pra

7PM-9PM

End of Century is pleased to announce, “That Old Time Religion,” an exhibition of work by Colin Ruel. Like manger scenes on a Christmas cards or a drawings in the Lascaux cave, Ruel has created an entire visual vocabulary for the cult of his imagination, influenced by shaman practices and catholic iconography. His subjects – Virgin Mary’s, Feather-haired Navajo Chiefs, and diving birds – save, sacrifice, misguide, and redeem, on salvaged wood, stretched denim, and rain gutters from Martha’s Vineyard. Opening Reception Friday, February 24th, 7-9 PM at End of Century, 237 Eldridge Street, New York, New York. DJ Set by Will Roan of Amazing Baby.

02/24/2012-03/17/2012
6pm-00pm

The Abrons Arts Center is pleased to announce On the Outer Edge, an exhibition by Spanish-born New York based artist PS3* Pedro Sanchez3 in the Upper Main Gallery. The artist presents a new video work in his full-scale model home designed for a life of deliberate deprivation. Based on Brazilian favelas and built from materials found in and around the Lower East Side, this continually adaptable structure participates in an international language of habitation. Dwellings like the one presented in this exhibition are a global response to poverty — usually inhabited by immigrants or slave workers in the suburbs of large cities in Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Morocco, and many other African and Asian countries.

ANDRES BEDOYA: FROM ULTRA MADRE
http://support.henrystreet.org/site/PageServer?pagename=AAC_EXH_from_ultra_madre
02/24/2012-03/17/2012
6pm-00pm

Andres Bedoya’s performance installation Ultra Madre was originally presented at the Museo Nacional de Arte in La Paz, Bolivia, in 2009. Born of private mourning, the piece ultimately speaks of loss as a collective experience. Installed within the main arch of the museum’s patio, a steel and wood scaffold holding 57 women disrupted its architecture physically and functionally. For approximately one hour, participating women lay still with their long hair cascading down the 15-foot structure. In stark contrast to the hardness of the building, the body appeared soft, impermanent, and ephemeral.

2pm-7pm

Some nights I sit at home and sew and the hours fly by and I look at the clock and see it’s 2 am, time to go to bed. Using my hands has always been a big part of my existence- an art, a craft, a meditation. The exponential growth of technology has also spawned its antithesis – a revival of craft – an elevation of handiwork to a fine art.

10:30am-5:30pm

Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Throughout her career, she has presented a sustained, eloquent, and provocative exploration of the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation, drawn from the unlimited supply of images from movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. Working as her own model for more than 30 years, Sherman has captured herself in a range of guises and personas which are at turns amusing and disturbing, distasteful and affecting. To create her photographs, she assumes multiple roles of photographer, model, makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist, and wardrobe mistress. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has deftly altered her physique and surroundings to create a myriad of intriguing tableaus and characters, from screen siren to clown to aging socialite.

10:30am-5:30pm

Over the last two decades, geopolitical borders have shifted and new technologies have forged channels of communication around the world. Printed materials, in both innovative and traditional forms, have played a key role in this exchange of ideas and sources. This exhibition examines the evolution of artistic practices related to the print medium, from the resurgence of traditional printmaking techniques—often used alongside digital technologies—to the proliferation of self-published artists’ projects. Bringing together some 70 series or projects drawn substantially from MoMA’s extensive collection of prints and books, with the addition of several important loans, the exhibition features major artists and publishing projects, such as Ai Weiwei, Trisha Donnelly, Martin Kippenberger, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Lucy McKenzie, Aleksandra Mir, Museum in Progress, Edition Jacob Samuel, Thomas Schütte, SUPERFLEX, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Christopher Wool, among many others.

Eugène Atget: “Documents pour artistes”
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1216?book
02/26/2012-04/09/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

This exhibition presents six fresh and highly focused cross sections through the career of master photographer Eugène Atget (French, 1857–1927), drawn exclusively from the Museum’s unparalleled holdings of his work. The sign outside Atget’s studio read, “Documents pour artistes,”—declaring his modest ambition to create images for other artists to use as source material. This humility belied the visual sophistication and distinctive vision that characterized much of Atget’s own work.

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1230?book
02/26/2012-07/30/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream is an exploration of new architectural possibilities for cities and suburbs in the aftermath of the recent foreclosure crisis. During summer 2011, five interdisciplinary teams of architects, urban planners, ecologists, engineers, and landscape designers worked in public workshops at MoMA PS1 to envision new housing and transportation infrastructures that could catalyze urban transformation, particularly in the country’s suburbs. Responding to The Buell Hypothesis, a research report prepared by the Buell Center at Columbia University, teams—lead by MOS, Visible Weather, Studio Gang, WORKac, and Zago Architecture—focused on a specific location within one of five “megaregions” across the country to come up with inventive solutions for the future of American suburbs. This installation presents the proposals developed during the architects-in-residence program, including a wide array of models, renderings, animations, and analytical materials.

The Wooster Group has invited Richard Maxwell of New York City Players to direct Eugene O’Neill’s early “Glencairn” plays—Bound East for Cardiff (1914), The Long Voyage Home (1917) and The Moon of the Caribbees (1918). Early Plays takes O’Neill’s tales of sailors on and off the ocean as a base to explore themes of longing and eternity. Dark episodes showing the underside of turn-of-the-century maritime life—brawls, dances and carousing—are staged with a quotidian grace allowing these simple stories to resonate emotionally.

SOLOWAY presents: Krypta by DRAOK
http://www.soloway.info/
02/26/2012-03/30/2012
6pm-8pm

Giorgio Guidi and Marta Pierobon formed Draok in 2010 to work collaboratively on shared interests including architecture, perception and social systems. Both Guidi and Peirobon have long been fascinated by the secretive and hidden: crypts, cults, ghosts and memories. Italian cities are built on the foundations of previous settlements–Etruscan, Roman and medieval–producing a stratification of civilizations. New buildings rise on the ruins of the old, burying earlier structures in rubble and debris. In Italian Catholicism there is a long tradition of covering and hiding the past; it is deeply embedded in the hierarchy of the church. Beneath the modern city lies the still present and living past and its treasures, relics, and corpses.

Ingredients of Reality: the dismantling of New York City
http://www.lantuazon.com/
02/28/2012-04/07/2012
7pm-9pm

Ingredients of Reality: the Dismantling of New York City by Lan Tuazon presents sculptures, drawings and prints that discuss how history, the law and class structures are written on the physical environment. Surrealist in concept, Tuazon takes real/existing parts of the built environment — including buildings, lots, and monuments – and creates a new reality against the repressive logic of property. The exhibition includes the presentation of two new works: Architectures of Defense and New York City Bar Graph, which paired with Tuazon’s Army Park and Parking Lot Landscape, present the city disassembled into parts and functions unveiling taxonomies of power reordered into new composite figures that render visible what reality has ceased to distinguish.

Liz Biddle, Regine Granne, and Katherine Tzu-lan Mann at A.I.R. Gallery
http://www.airgallery.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=main.artists&artistid=885
03/01/2012-03/24/2012
6pm-9pm

This exhibition showcases Biddle’s continuing interest in mixed media, with a twist of humor found in much of her work. Old wires, light bulbs, screws and other found objects protrude from holes in ceramic objects, while creature-like robots – strange, disturbing and endearing – appear in collages and drawings. Liberty is a contemplation of the present in the wake of 9/11. The Statue of Liberty itself simultaneously represents an overused icon and a diminishing concept. These works offer a means of viewing such images and enable reflection of our world, our nation, our politics, our person, our perspective, and our relationship to all. Mann’s large paintings in Root, created by combining chance stains with highly rendered decorative elements on oversized, un-stretched paper, function as human-sized portholes into a landscape alive with minute details, patterns and interlocking systems.

Hear Beethoven the way Beethoven intended. Over three extraordinary weeks, conductor David Zinman leads the New York Philharmonic in his “exhilarating” (Gramophone magazine) approach to the masterpieces of Beethoven, revealing fresh vitality in the music. Performed with the brash vigor, passionate joy and raw pathos that Beethoven himself intended, these symphonies will sound bold, dramatic and new. You might call it modern; you’d certainly call it unforgettable. VENUE: Lincoln Center Avery Fisher Hall Check website for times.

In addition, the show will include a selection of significant works spanning Wood’s career that emphasize the social and environmental issues that have informed his works since the late 1950s.

Harriet Korman: New Paintings
http://lennonweinberg.com/current/current_1.html
03/01/2012-04/14/2012
00pm-00pm

Harriet Korman’s last solo exhibition of new work took place at the gallery in 2008. She has continued to focus on color and shape in new paintings that attain a decisive and brilliant clarity. Basing the compositions on line drawings, Korman uses the location of the lines as boundaries between colors, and selects individual unblended pigments for the resulting shapes. She exposes each color’s intrinsic qualities of hue, brightness, transparency, and texture through the juxtaposition of related or contrasting colors and a deceptively casual paint application. Diagonals that slice across the mostly four by five foot canvasses give rise to an interesting reverse symmetry; horizontals and verticals further divide wedges into triangles and polygons. In the end, Korman achieves a shifting dominance between whole and divided shapes through the purposeful selection and arrangement of color.

03/01/2012-03/18/2012
3pm-8pm

Set on an isolated farm in eastern Kentucky, Heathens is an unsettling comedy that makes the term “family values” take on new meanings. When a wandering laborer follows a woman home for the night, he finds a lot more than he bargained for in the home she shares with her sister and her Mamaw. The play explores mourning, faith, and the dangers of isolation as the characters do battle with themselves and each other.

This is Ruwedel’s second solo exhibition with the Gallery, which presented his first New York show, Westward the Course of Empire, in 2009. The exhibition will present the artist’s recent projects in the western United States, focusing on the collision of promise and reality. The photographs, primarily of homes and landscapes, were made in the desert regions surrounding Los Angeles, from the western Mojave Desert to the Salton Sea region, as well as in Utah and on a small island in British Columbia.

ART EXHIBITION – THE BEAUTY OF JAPAN – TOMIKO KATO

Corinne Wasmuht
http://www.petzel.com/exhibitions/2012-01-12_joyce-pensato/
03/01/2012-04/28/2012
6pm-8pm

Wasmuht is widely known for her large-scale, multi-layered oil paintings. Her work derives from an array of pictorial inventions, culminating in an aesthetic tension that aims to reconcile what the artist refers to as the “dualism of modernism,” a melding of representational and abstract structures in painting. The paintings’ images are generated from an array of abstracted and overlapping photographic imagery that Wasmuht sources from a combination of the Internet and her own personal photographs. The images, both appropriated and her own, mine daily life, nature, science and art, fusing into staged abstracted productions. As Wasmuht describes her process, “In a film, one image is followed by another, whereas I pile the images up on top of one another.” Above all, her labor-intensive painting technique characterizes her work.

MOMENTUM

03/01/2012-06/26/2012
6pm-8pm

OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 01, 2011 6:00 PM It has been almost two years since the very first release of Impossible instant film, the wildly anticipated new black & white instant film for Polaroid SX-70 cameras. Although the film was initially in a developmental stage and highly experimental, it dawned on both fanatics and photographers alike that the impossible actually could become possible. Just 19 months later, Impossible has released 12 unique film types for three separate Polaroid camera systems. Although the journey has been short, the length Impossible has come represents a milestone in reviving instant analog photography. Using Impossible’s latest color and black & white films, twelve carefully selected photographers are illustrating a MOMENTUM that will carry instant analog photography through the digital age and beyond.

Eat Peter to Feed Paul by John Felix Arnold III and Christopher Burch
http://www.littlefieldnyc.com/exhibit/
03/01/2012-03/31/2012
-

John Felix Arnold’s drawings and mixed media pieces combine a fine art aesthetic with a stylistic execution that’s intentionally derivative of graphic novels and comics. Equally influenced by this subversive genre of literature, modern dance, and his father’s collection of modern and abstract art, Arnold layers imagery with commentary to create a hybrid reality that references his synthesized human experience and aims to inform people of an ever hurtling machine that they are being wrapped inside of that is eating away at their humanity, yet seemingly cannot live without.

The Ungovernables
http://www.newmuseum.org/exhibitions/448/the_ungovernables
03/01/2012-04/22/2012
-

The 2012 New Museum Triennial will feature thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US. The exhibition title, “The Ungovernables,” takes its inspiration from the concept of “ungovernability” and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly “natives” to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. “The Ungovernables” is meant to suggest both anarchic and organized resistance and a dark humor about the limitations and potentials of this generation.

EMERGING FEMALE ABSTRACTIONISTS: Lauren Luloff
http://www.hortongallery.com/
03/01/2012-03/31/2012
-

Lauren Luloff’s recent collage paintings bring to mind the sky, the worn floor of a textile mill, tea in an old porcelain cup and laundry drying in the sun. Her process is simple: first she stretches semi transparent fabric over stretcher bars, then glues swatches of fabrics and paints on this “ground”. Nothing is hidden and everything is revealed. The process, laid bare, yields something mysterious; the work becomes hazy and atmospheric, like dawn or a memory of childhood. The fabrics simultaneously root and dislocate the painted colors, like Matisse who famously always painted with scraps of printed fabrics hanging around his studio.

For the first time ever, selections from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein manuscript will be available for public viewing in the United States in this exciting exhibition, which is being shown in collaboration with the Bodleian Library at Oxford University in England and will highlight the literary and cultural legacy of P.B. and Mary Shelley, and that of her parents, William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft.

obbi Beck has exhibited her artworks at five New York City Public Libraries. She now travels to the Grand Central Library Branch for another exhibition. Included are many new drawings rendered with vibrant colors. The drawings are autobiographical and reflect her day-to-day observations and feelings. They convey her emotional and visual renderings of humor, love, gender conflicts, marriage, family, health, joy and sorrow, anguish and global issues.

The Birth of Promotion: Inventing Film Publicity in the Silent-Film Era
http://www.nypl.org/events/exhibitions/birth-promotion-inventing-film-publicity-silent-film-era
03/01/2012-03/10/2012
-

The evolution of motion pictures from invention to art form has spanned the century. The basic elements of the promotion and distribution of film were established in the silent-film era. This exhibition focuses on the develoment of those elements — posters, promotional magazines, advertising, and exploitation campaigns — from pre-cinema to the transition to sound film. The gallery visitor will be able to view posters, programs, advertisements, and lobby cards that were shown to the public from 1890 to 1930, as well as original gouache designs for posters, including an early, pro-Union sketch for Birth of a Nation. Also on view are things that the public was never supposed to see — periodicals, calendars, and exploitation sheets giving advice to theater owners and managers on publicity, advertising, and retail tie-ins for films starring Theda Bara, Lillian Gish, Corinne Griffith, Harold Lloyd, Pola Negri, Mary Pickford, Ben Turpin, Rudolph Valentino, and many others.

Peter Tunney // Skull Session
http://www.clicgallery.com/index.htm
03/01/2012-03/25/2012
-

Opening Receptions: Wednesday, March 14, 6-10pm Thursday, March 15, 6-10pm In the latter half of the 2000s, skull iconography experienced a massive cultural renaissance. Alexander McQueen, arguably the most influential designer of the last twenty years, adopted the skull as his brand trademark in the early 2000s; reproducing it on everything from scarves to jeweled clutches. Meanwhile, in 2007, British enfant terrible Damien Hirst sent shockwaves through the art world when he sold a diamond-encrusted human skull for $122 million dollars. Gradually, throughout the course of the 2000s, skulls shed their more macabre, foreboding implications and became widely accepted as signifiers of not only dark luxury and good taste but of the precariousness and preciousness of human existence.

Cut and Paste at Muriel Guépin Gallery curated by rhv fine art
http://www.murielguepingallery.com/
03/02/2012-04/15/2012
6:30-8pm

Although the process of collage has been around for millennia it was George Braques and Pablo Picasso who, in the early 20th century, made the act of cutting and pasting disperate elements of paper, cardboard, string or basically whatever into works of fine art. This marked the beginning of a mash-up between “high” and “low” culture that would eventually occupy an enormous movement in contemporary art. RHV Fine Art has selected three artists, James Cullinane, Sharon Lawless and Andrew Zarou, from it’s exceptional roster of artists, each of whom uses the technique of collage in different ways and to different ends. March 2 – April 15, 2012 Opening reception: Friday, March 2, 6:30 – 8pm

Heide Fasnacht: Loot
http://www.kentfineart.net/exhibitions/main.html
03/02/2012-04/21/2012
-

Since 2008 Heide Fasnacht has been exploring landscapes of cultural destruction and in the process has recovered images long dormant and silent. Against our social climate, marked as it is by an inability to face history, Fasnacht takes on the challenge of excavating the past as she examines the fate of cultural artifacts in times of conflict. She begins in medias res, figuratively and literally, and assembles arrays of things stolen, hoarded, lost, recovered, and demolished as a result of war. Fasnacht draws on multiple sources, including the Nazi’s confiscation of art and treasure, the Allies’ bombing of Monte Cassino, looting and damage at the Umm al-Aqarib archaeological site in Iraq following the US invasion, the methodical looting of treasure by Japanese forces in WWII, Japanese internment camps in the US, the Taliban’s destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas, the London Blitz, the TET offensive, the Monuments Men, and the Rubble Women.

Chakaia Booker: Print Me.

David Krut Projects is pleased to present Print Me, the first exhibition dedicated to Chakaia Booker’s prints. Booker began collaborating with Master Printer, Phil Sanders, of Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in 2009, and has created over 100 unique prints to date. The title of the exhibition, Print Me, refers to the collaborative dialogue between Booker and Sanders, in which Booker would leave hand written notes for Sanders once her compositions were finished and ready to print. This exhibition features a selection of these collaborative prints, which highlight Booker’s investigation of the two-dimensional framework through experimental print media.

Reception March 2, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM SIMONE GILGES presents, in her second New York solo exhibition at Foxy Production, a new series of photographic portraits. Her photographs draw astute visual connections between the people she portrays and the settings in which they are posed. Gilges channels the tropes of portrait, design, and fashion photography into an enigmatic idiom that both discloses and holds onto its secrets.

Mesmer Eyes Kathy Goodell

03/02/2012-04/16/2012
-

This March, Causey Contemporary is pleased to present Mesmer Eyes, a solo exhibition by Kathy Goodell. Sculpture and drawing, Goodell’s most familiar forms, are utilized as physical accents within Mesmer Eyes, the tactile qualities leading one from nature to the metaphysical. Mesmer Eyes is characteristic of Goodell’s meditative approach to space, time and consciousness, while optimizing her interests in light and prismatic color to create a hypnotic effect, allowing the tangible to meet the abstract. This will be the first solo exhibition by Ms. Goodell at the gallery, which will include a large-scale, interactive painting installation, aqueous pigment print photographs, sculptures and drawings from 2011-2012.

FRANKLIN EVANS:EYESONTHEEDGE
http://www.suescottgallery.com/
03/02/2012-04/15/2012
-

OPENING RECEPTION 2 MARCH, 6 – 8 PM Evans examines the processes of making art — the generation of ideas and materials, their transformation from one to the other, and the many varied states in between. For this exhibition, he will present paintings, sculptures, photographs, and a sound piece in an all-encompassing environment. The wall paintings and collage environments of past installations, such as timecompressionmachine from Greater New York 2010 at MoMA PS1, have been collapsed by the artist and transferred to the surface of large-scale canvases. Mundane materials such as artist’s tape that previously played a key role as a barrier, frame, and drawing tool, are carefully recreated as trompe l’oeil representations, as the use of actual tape in the final compositions diminishes.

RADIATOR GALLERY presents TOGETHER AGAIN
http://www.radiatorarts.com/Gallery.html
03/02/2012-03/20/2012
-

Opening: March 2, 6 – 9PM Special event: March 9, 6 -9PM The show’s title is based on a piece by Vikenti Komitski, which presents an intriguing world map whose continents have come together in a single, interconnected body. Is this restored Panguea, a Utopian island or a new world order? Is it the result of natural disaster or of carefully engineered forces of globalization? “Together Again” is charged with both contradiction and potential, fueled by a Romantic sentiment that togetherness/ solidarity is still possible. The show is immersed in the “ideal,” presenting artistic gestures that push beyond a possible yet desirable future. Landscape is a recurring motif, behind which lie attempts to observe and contemplate, efforts either enhanced or mediated by technology. This detour back into nature is interrupted by an accelerating tension between nature and culture. Thus is formed the overall arch among these artists’ exercises in Utopia.

Studio10 is pleased to announce Scissors, Paper, Glue and Books I Can’t Cut Up,an exhibition of new work by the Brooklyn-based artist Tim Spelios. Spelios’s original source materials become the means to mine obscure connections and create irrational associations through juxtapositions of images and objects. The obsolete materials he collects include flyers, books, magazines, trade catalogs and manuals which are often found at flea markets, second hand book shops or on the street. Spelios has a particular wonderment in the printed matter with the covers torn, important pages removed or defaced. Performances in association with the exhibition: March 10, 7:30 – 10:00 pm March 24, 7:30 – 10:00 pm

-

Opening Reception, Friday March 2, 6-9 pm INTERSTATE PROJECTS is pleased to present The Remaster Cycle, Jesse Hulcher’s first solo exhibition in New York. Through a wide range of digital and analog mediums, Hulcher explores the ways that corporate media influences how we view such disparate cultural experiences as the Vietnam war, Groundhog Day, and the Grateful Dead, among others. With Groundhog Days – or – Same Shit, Same Day, Hulcher has written a custom DVD script that alters the playback of 1993’s Groundhog Day, dictating that the central portion of the film devolves into an endless loop, rendering it a more realistic depiction of Phil Connor’s experiences in Punxsutawny, PA. Staying within the medium of mass market film, The Vietnam Experience – or – Same Shit, Different Song, the viewer is presented with a distallation of the entertainment industries cinematic representation of the Vietnam War thoughout the previous four decades.

Dark Pop 4
http://www.lastritesgallery.com/darkpop_4.php
03/03/2012-04/08/2012
7pm-11pm

Last Rites Gallery, for the fourth consecutive year, presents the “Dark Pop 4″ group art exhibition guest curated by Gary Pressman (director of Copro Gallery). Artists are asked to create One piece that is truly considered ‘Dark Art’. Many artists find themselves in the groove of creating a certain mood or emotion through their work and have, understandably, become quite comfortable following this path in their art-making. At Last Rites Gallery we want to break that mold and challenge artists to create a piece that searches through new or buried feelings and emotions. The artist’s will let go of the light and allow the dark to thrive, as pop takes on a new form.

THE POP-UP MUSEUM Opening!

03/03/2012-04/22/2012
8pm-

THE POP-UP MUSEUM of the Gowanus Canal March 3 – April 22, 2012 Opening Reception: 8:00 PM, Saturday, March 3rd Tumblr: http://gowanuslab.tumblr.com/ A museum’s mission involves the categorization, preservation, and contextualization of objects within a finite space. The Pop-Up Museum is designed to function as the inverse of these practices, bringing together a set of local, “unremarkable” objects that then become art or serve as a springboard for art that references them. Through the playful contextualization and re-contextualization of these objects, we will redefine the museum—both what a museum looks like, physically, and what it does, culturally. Specifically, we will work with found materials from all around the Gowanus neighborhood to create a new “history” of the region and its traditions (a not entirely serious one).

MOLLY SMITH TIDAL
http://www.katewerblegallery.com/
03/03/2012-04/14/2012
6pm-8pm

Molly Smith’s second solo show at Kate Werble Gallery addresses the artist’s personal response to the impermanence and cycles of change within the world. The works in this exhibition are purposely unfixed and mutable; they lean, balance, rest or hang precariously, suggesting the possibility of further transformation. Playing with varied heights and angles, Smith’s sculptures intersect one another across sightlines. Along one wall, strips of painted and cut paper are reassembled to span the thirty-five foot length, creating an undulating panorama. As they reference one another with recurrent materials, gestures and objects, the works suggest changing states. In the windows of the gallery, rotating displays show various combinations of a landscape painting, a photograph, and collected ephemera. These displays change daily to reflect how looking, seeing and making are part of Smith’s everyday.

JOHN ALMANZA AND DAVE HARDY
http://www.reginarex.org/
03/03/2012-04/08/2012
7pm-10pm

The paintings of John Almanza and the sculptures of Dave Hardy reflect the reckless abandon of progress, with an emphasis on looking at how materials get relegated to the side as other forces push forward. Indulging in the abundances available to them, both artists consider excess and overflow as vital to the physicality and construction of their work. Almanza’s viscous oil paintings rely on a process of application and removal of paint. While the paintings are still wet, he traverses the canvas with a thin strip of plywood—simultaneously scraping away paint with the swipe of a line and adding paint that is carried across on the plywood. This forms a pattern of hard parallel lines that reveals underlying ghosted abstractions perpetually in limbo. Hardy’s sculptures of found glass, foam and an assortment of other materials build tension from the interplay between hard and soft edges. Engineered to confound notions of structural integrity, these works borrow from the urgent language of p

From nameless nudes to portraits of monarchs, the figure in art has served to codify power. So have art objects, splitting viewer from viewed. Our figures have agency. Our work empowers viewers as complicit participants, as centers of process and experience. We complicate and push against dichotomies and hierarchies: self/other, rural/urban, black/white, perpetrator/victim, family/stranger, performer/observer. We are four artists who met through NYFA’s MARK program. We quickly found common ground in our disparate uses of the figure at intersections of the social/political/personal.

Rachel Uffner Gallery is pleased to present a show of new work by Sam Moyer. For her second solo show at the gallery, Moyer will exhibit pieces that continue her examination of the liminal space between the two- and three-dimensional, albeit in a larger, more imposing scale than her work has explored before. In paintings that hover on the edge of sculpture, and sculpture that hovers on the edge of painting, Moyer recalls the rigorous language of mid-20th-century minimalist art, but also the modest, playful and scattershot material processes of home design projects.

Unconventional Tableaux
http://afanyc.com/lin-esser/event-press-release/
03/04/2012-03/20/2012
-

Lin Esser’s new exhibition, “Unconventional Tableaux,” began, in part, as an effort to replace a Dia de los Muertos box lost during childhood. Further inspired by the eccentric subjects of English symbolism, sinister figures of the renaissance and the anthropomorphic tableaux of Victorian naturalism, Esser soon found himself caught up in the creation of an entire body of three-dimensional works that he later began calling “tableaux.” His dark introspective vision and extensive experience with film and theater lend a sense of the dramatic to these macabre yet playful narratives about the joys and sorrow of everyday life and beyond.

The Laramie Project

In 1998, a young college student at the University of Wyoming, Matthew Shepard was beaten, tied to a fencepost and left to die by two men of similar age. After, the nature of the crime was revealed to be from hate and fear of homosexuality. A national debate ensued in America that painfully endures to this day. As the tragic events exploded all over the national media, a group of New York City based actors and writers, the Tectonic Theater Project, known for their unique style and view, were intrigued and went to Laramie, Wyoming to study the impact of these events and the result is the Heights’ March production of The Laramie Project.

or more than four decades, Woods’ drawings have expressed compelling ideas and portrayed otherworldly scenes that suggest alternate histories and futures. With an inventive drive akin to that of Leonardo da Vinci and Giambattista Piranesi, and following the lineage of Enlightenment architect Etienne-Louis Boullée and Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, Woods invites us to imagine worlds as they might be. His drawings embrace decomposition alongside construction and ruin along with rebirth, presenting a heady brew of politics, history, and graphic bravura that never fails to astonish.

The first solo exhibition in New York City of paintings by Iranian artist Khosrow Hassanzadeh will be on view at Leila Heller Gallery’s Chelsea location at 568 West 25th Street from March 1 through 31, 2012. Haft Khan: The Seven Labors of Rostam will feature two monumental murals on tile, as well as works on paper. A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition. Hassanzadeh’s murals are enormous in size: the largest is more than 6 feet tall and nearly 28 feet long. Inspired by Iranian traditions of manhood that existed in a pre-revolutionized Iran, Hassanzadeh combines Persian visual traditions with pop representations of the once-celebrated icon of the wrestler.

An extension of the Swept Away exhibition, Swept Away Projects will include a series of “live” installations occurring during the run of the exhibition that will allow audiences to experience and interact with artists and their site-specific installations made of ash, dust, sand, and dirt. The series includes the floor installation of Catherine Bertola of the U.K., who works with dust, among several others. In some instances, visitor will actually get to sweep away the installations by walking through and touching them, participating in the ephemeral nature of these artists’ output. Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design is made possible by the Inner Circle, a leadership Museum support group, and with public funds from the Netherlands Cultural Services.

FROHAWK TWO FEATHERS: IT’S YOURS: WARS OF THE FRENGLISH REVOLUTION AND OTHER CONFLICTS 1782–1797

Morgan Lehman Gallery is pleased to announce, “It’s Yours: Wars of the Frenglish Revolution and Other Conflicts 1782 – 1797”. This is the first New York solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Frohawk Two Feathers. Two Feathers’ intricate ink and tea-stained portraits on paper bring to life his complex historical narrative detailing the colonial uprisings against the imagined 18th-century superpowers Frengland and Fenoscandia. Using actual historic events as points of departure, Two Feathers creates fantastical riffs on Europe’s colonial past, revealing how that history plays out in the cultural and political complexities and neo-colonial global conflicts of the contemporary world.

6pm-8pm

The exhibition is made up of three videos projected together with objects found along the harbors. “The tide acts like a giant centrifuge,” writes the artist, “reorganizing things according to their shape and density”. In “collaboration” with the tide, Lorenz makes a record of these objects by printing, casting, or videotaping them. Each video was shot from an apparatus connected to the body of the artist and to the boat while en route from Barren Island to her home in Bushwick. This same geographical path is shown three different ways: from a birds-eye view of the artist, at the horizon line and along the shifting contour of the land.

The House of Fitzcarraldo
http://www.bricktheater.com/
03/07/2012-03/17/2012
8pm-

In 1979 director Werner Herzog and his megalomaniac best fiend, Klaus Kinski, pulled a 300-ton steamship over a mountain under its own steam. In this highly theatrical performance work, the performers, taking on the role of the Collective Ego of Herzog & Kinski, ponder the significance of dreams and the insanity one must invest in pursuing the useless conquest of unconscious wishes. Pulling and culling from a myriad of source texts, videos, and dreams, Buran uses its distinctive style to situate itself between high and low culture – creating mayhem, shooting cap guns, prompting sing-a-longs, and integrating a folksy existentialism to explore our nature as beings who cannot help but desire our own dumb dreams.

Dacia Gallery and Contaminate NYC is pleased to present “Make a Wish”, a solo-show by Italian artist Claudia Trombin. Through multi-media paintings, watercolors, and installations revisiting the fascinating and complex language of the unconscious, Claudia’s seductive yet unsettling creations aim to bewilder the viewer, generating doubts and questions, unleashing desires and dream-like visions. In her attempt to shape the invisible – emotions, feelings, fears, obsessions, reveries – she creates imaginary spaces, juggling reality and fantasy, the ordinary and the unique. Inspired by Surrealism principles and fascinated by psychoanalysis and archetypes nature, Claudia develops her artwork along ambivalent, symbolic, and philosophical themes. Dragonflies and dandelions, flowers composed of a seed head and hundreds of smaller florets, become her inspiration to materialize this process.

The installation will feature video footage from the Ossário tunnel intervention project, several soot on canvas paintings from Art Less Pollution and unique prints made by “Pollugraphy” (collecting toxic soot directly from vehicle exhaust tailpipes). The gallery exhibition coincides with Orion’s participation in Swept Away: Dust, Ashes and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York.

Kris Kuksi
http://joshualinergallery.com/exhibitions/kuksi_triumph_march_8_2012/
03/08/2012-04/07/2012
11pm-6pm

With its cautionary title, Triumph skewers the hubris and folly of human ambition. This cavalcade of epic works references mythology, the occult, and organized religion, and uses age-old techniques of visual storytelling to voice personal angst. Depicting grand themes with extravagant embellishments, Kuksi’s assemblages of small, mass-produced materials are intrinsically narrative. Like gilt Baroque altarpieces, their stunning excess of detail is the ideal vehicle for the artist’s critique of power and piety. And like those early works of public art, they appeal to the viewer to transcend the strife and striving associated with greed.

6pm-9pm

FEATURING WORKS BY: AURORA PELLIZZI / WILLIAM RAHILLY / CELIA ROWLSON-HALL Curated by: Curação Calymayor The artists in this exhibition provide a valuable viewpoint to the themes of tension between the past and future. Treatments of cultural memory suggest a foreign space, re-framing the relation between content and consciousness inevitably influenced by the scientific, technological, and social awareness of a dissatisfied present. Aurora Pellizzi and her Greenscreen series is a set of monochromatic, volumetric and freestanding paintings and projections that use surface texture, light and darkness to create images. The title refers to the evenly lit green backdrop used in video, where the backdrop is digitally removed and replaced by another layer of image (cut-out). The slime-green hue is tropical and Martian, natural and digital. These landscapes are the dis-embodied space of abstraction.

6pm-9pm

Christopher Henry Gallery is proud to present Ironic Icons II by New York artist William Anthony. Ironic Icons II is Anthony’s fourth exhibit with the gallery, which expands on his trademark pseudo-naive drawing style, along with his penchant for reinterpreting allegorical scenes and art historical references. In the spirit of Hollywood sequels, the exhibition is replete with depictions of popular action-adventure masculine subjects such as pirates, cowboys, and gladiators. Anthony exploits, to great effect, the full range of iconographies as a vehicle for his refreshing satires.

Called “Stinging & Satirical” by the Kenyon Review, Another Life is a roller-coaster ride, surreal and real, through the past ten years which tells of the titanic struggle between a mogul and his physician daughter who become embedded in the War on Terror torture program. Greed, war-lust, and sexual enslavement lead to a subtle but growing resistance and whistle-blowing.

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, MARCH 8, FROM 6-8 PM Block Island, located 11 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, is an important stopover for birds on the offshore migration route of the Atlantic Flyway, offering respite at sea during their seasonal flight. Elizabeth Dickens, a long time resident, began collecting dead birds on the island beginning in the early 20th century. She had them stuffed and catalogued, amassing a valuable ornithological record consisting of 172 specimens. The cause of death- flew into a lighthouse, death by cat, death by telephone wire- was always noted.

6pm-8pm

Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Available Light , a new series of photographic works by Sarah Charlesworth from 6 March to 14 April 2012. The exhibition will open to the public Tuesday 6 March with a reception for the artist Thursday evening, 8 March from 6 to 8 PM. Light, in both a physical and metaphysical sense, is at the center of this new body of work from Sarah Charlesworth. Making use of a crystal ball, an assortment of prisms, and other optical instruments, Charlesworth engages the play of light from her studio window as it reflects and refracts to conjure a mysterious animated presence. At various turns our expectations are questioned and confounded by optical inversions and visual illusions. Composed images of spectral phenomena are shown side by side with documentary style images of the studio. Props arrayed on a desk and studio materials leaning against a wall hint at the show in progress.

All tickets for this show are sold out. There is a waiting list available which begins at 7pm in person at the Box Office on the night of the performance. Choreographer Pam Tanowitz collaborates with renowned new music ensemble FLUX Quartet, putting her new choreography to avant-garde composer Morton Feldman’s challenging String Quartet #1. In keeping with the composition, Untitled (The Blue Ballet) reduces ballet steps and traditional signifiers to a new kind of language steeped in questions of presence and absence. At the same time, Tanowitz’s work digs deeply into the lives and histories of its classically trained performers to reveal the layers of personal experience behind every phrase they dance. Featuring Sasha Dmochowski, Jean Freebury, John Heginbotham, Brian Reeder, and Ashley Tuttle. Lighting and set design by Philip Treviño. Costumes by Karen Young.

11am-5pm

Showcasing this emerging discourse, the cinema program No More Modern : Notes on Metamodernism pairs cinema works, all produced in the 2000’s, with free copies of Van den Akker and Vermeulen’s essay. Hailing from different countries, these artworks all illustrate Van Den Akker and Vermeulen’s tenants metamodernism being “a continuous oscillation, a constant repositioning between positions and mindsets that are evocative of the modern and of the postmodern but are ultimately suggestive of another sensibility that is neither of them. A discourse that negotiates between a yearning for universal truths but also an (a)political relativism, between hope and doubt, sincerity and irony, knowingness and naivety, construction and deconstruction.”

Hall of Fame,” on the 19th floor of the gallery’s penthouse space, features new paintings by Joe Andoe. Andoe has created these instantly recognizable works with his distinct style of applying oil paint and wiping it away, shaping shadow and light, blurring the contours of his subjects. These subjects are specific to his practice and reflect his fascination with iconic American imagery. Here he has returned to horses. It is the combination of his technique and use of a monochromatic palette, which result in the powerful images that comprise the current exhibition.

In a continuation of ideas explored at Phillips’ solo exhibition at the gallery in early 2012, River Street forms part of a series of pieces, which span two years of production. From 2010 through 2011 Phillips’ studio on River Street in Hyde Park, MA, was on the site of an historic, abandoned elevator tower which was part of a largely demolished paper mill. Exposed to the elements after years of neglect, the tower stands dilapidated on the edge and in contrast, to a major commercial development. During his time there, Phillips used landscape and structure as the main sources for his studio practice. Digging, photographing, and rehabilitating the land and the inside of the old tower became rituals of manual labor.

Klaus von Nichtssagend is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Benjamin Butler, entitled Some Trees. Featuring new oil paintings, the show will open on March 8th and run through April 22nd. An opening reception will be held for the artist on Thursday, March 8th from 6-8pm. The exhibition will feature a variety of Butler’s oil paintings on canvas, from the large scale to smaller pieces conceived of and hung as a series. The title of the show is borrowed from the John Ashbery poem, ‘Some Trees’, and points to Butler’s specific meditation on painting. For most of the past decade, ‘trees’ and ‘forests’, have served for Butler as a pictorial stand-in and a point of departure for making abstract paintings. In these recent works, Butler is seen approaching his paintings more directly as objects, considering not only the front surface of the canvas, but the sides as well.

Launched before the formal incorporation of Culture Project, Women Center Stage is our longest-running programmatic initiative. From the first collection of works presented under the festival mantle in 1996, Women Center Stage has grown into a multi-pronged initiative, an echo chamber for women artists to build community and share their stories, and a launch pad for provocative and relevant new work. The cornerstone of WCS is the annual Women Center Stage Festival, a dynamic and diverse laboratory for works in progress from women artists at all levels of their careers. Presented every March for Women’s History Month, the month-long Festival provides a much-needed setting for exploring new ideas and inspiration, testing out early stages of new work, and putting women artists in dialogue with their peers, new audiences, and critical review.

10 am-6 pm

Jason McCoy Gallery presents the first NY solo exhibition of German artist Christiane Löhr (b. 1965), featuring sculptures, works on paper, and a site-specific installation. Löhr works with organic materials⎯ivy seeds, plant stalks, tree blossoms, and horsehairs⎯arranging them into elaborate geometric constructs. By organizing single elements into intimately scaled volumetric forms, Löhr derives at a unified entity that exudes harmony and tranquility. Her work encourages focused observation, and when studied closely, pays homage to the wealth and delicacy of detail found in nature. In that sense, Löhr provides a pedestal for the often overlooked and yet omni-present remnants of environmental organisms. Carefully installed, these objects of nature further engage in a dialogue with architecture. Seen outside their natural context and carefully installed in manmade spaces, they gain an iconic presence and clarity. Löhr lives and works in Cologne and Prato, Italy

Founding editor of WhitehotMagazine.com, Noah Becker is a curator, writer, artist and jazz musician, and contributes to Art in America, Interview Magazine, Canadian Art and The Huffington Post. “This exhibition shows an aspect of high quality work being produced in Europe and North America in our time. The idea of artists being automatically connected in some way is a fallacy fed to us subliminally and linearly. Art history is wound together with globalism through the mass distribution of images and imagery delivered in a linear digital mold. Much of what is documented in two-dimensional artistic practice is fed to the public in a manner that has a host of attached biases. The presumption of a common thread is an attitude propagated by linear thinking as linear thinking is part of everything we do now. In relation to contemporary art, the non-linear holds an important place.

Working together in Soriano’s studio for the past several months the two artists used a “call & response” approach to their collaboration: An area was demarcated, an object was positioned, a relief mounted, a picture added, another object placed, an image framed. Coupling various aspects of their divergent working methods elements were amended and a scenario was thereby roughed out. This This scenario was further explored and expanded upon in the space of the gallery. Spray-painted diagrams, found images, fabricated objects and a modular presentation system conjoin in an installation that is at once familiar and digressive, reflective and oblique.

OCCUPY ROUSSEAU: INEQUALITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

7pm-

Distinguished intellectuals, political leaders, activists, and artists from both Geneva and the U.S. join forces to ask that question. Rousseau was an ardent defender of equality, justice and democratic participation. His moral and civic anger at the ways in which the Enlightenment “threw garlands of flowers over our chains” speaks directly to today’s protest movements, from Occupy Wall Street to the populist side of the Tea Party. What is the relevance and urgency of Rousseau’s political and social ideas today? How does the author of Discourse on Inequality help us explore the disturbing and destabilizing cracks that have led to democracies in crisis, perhaps in demise?

AFL-CIO’s Secret War against Developing Country Workers Solidarity or Sabotage?

7:30pm-

The principles of trade unionism are based on working people acting together in solidarity with each other, to improve wages, working conditions, and life for themselves and all others. In its most developed forms, this extends not only to the worker next to you, but to working people all around the world. Some of the foremost proponents of these principles in the United States since the 1880s has been the American Federation of Labor (AFL), then later the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO), and since their merger in 1955, the AFL-CIO.

1pm-3pm

The recent 400th anniversary of New York City invites us to think about how the great Western cities have evolved during the centuries of functional, social, administrative, economical, technical, and political developments from the Dark Ages to the present day. Architect and art historian Edward Toran is an author of The Municipal Art Society of New York City: 10 Architectural Walks in Manhattan. His illustrated presentation points out the intertwining of influences through which advances in production technology, business, warfare, and information have brought about major changes in urban landscapes. The Institute for Retired Professionals presents this program of free events on timely topics for IRP members, friends, and all members of the New School community. The series concludes on March 30 with Carlo Pantano.

Vogt Gallery is pleased to present the first New York solo show of Chilean artist Cristóbal Lehyt. Bringing together three recent related bodies of work exploring identity, figuration, and dramatic narrative, the exhibition will showcase drawings, photographs, and paintings, each taking Lehyt’s vision into a new direction. The Drama Projections are single images made up of 32 joined inkjet prints depicting human figures. These works originate from graphite and ink drawings of city dwellers created in an altered state induced not with the aid of substances, but through quick visual responses and repetition. They then undergo heavy filtering in a process involving photography, Photoshop, and then magnification.

7pm-9pm

POE […and the museum of lost arts] is part fiction, part historical, and part documentary. An experimental performance film, a collaboration between more than 30 artists from New York’s downtown dance, music and film scene directed by MiShinnah Production’s Artistic Director, Elise Kermani. Filmed at various locations in New York State including the deteriorating Bannerman Castle on the Hudson River, Brooklyn’s Litchfield Manor, the Poe Cottage in the Bronx and Lower Manhattan’s 3LD Art and Technology. A fictional, time-traveling Charles Baudelaire recites Edgar Allan Poe’s biography in his own words in a theater remodeled after the 19th century Barnum Museum lecture hall. Baudelaire is assisted by Techne, who guides him in his lecture. The cinematic audience is the final layer in a ‘film within films’ in this performance art piece. The POE Project expresses a regret at loss of the physical, the loss of film, of live performance, of acoustic sound, and foreshadows our ultimate merge

BIKE SHOP tells the story of a Brooklyn bicycle store circa 1993 and its owner, Bobby, an exuberant bike mechanic who runs a shop that was first opened by her grandmother in 1936. Two years after a tragic bike accident, Bobby tries to get back on her bike and get her own life in gear. As the sole performer in this musical, Elizabeth Barkan brings to life three generations of this bike-obsessed family, as she builds and fixes real bicycles onstage while backed up by a 4-piece “Bicycle Band”.

Stoller’s sculptures range from table-top figures and busts to large scale multi-piece works. In this solo endeavor Stoller continues using clay as a vehicle to explore issues of idealized beauty, vanity and the subjugation of the female body using porcelain as her primary media, a material inextricably linked to desire, secrecy and commodification.

Another started a factory only to have it destroyed by angry French tailors afraid of his invention. A third produced no working model, despite being the first patent-holder.

The Other Ken Weathersby
http://www.aferro.org/websitebaker/wb/pages/home.php
03/10/2012-04/14/2012
7pm-10pm

Ken Weathersby’s exhibition includes easel-sized, patterned abstract paintings, photographic works, and several wall-mounted boxes containing tiny, crafted objects resembling miniature paintings. The works in the show shuffle the traditional given stuff of pictures and picture-making. The paintings are subtly pulled apart, or have pieces cut out and removed, or their painted faces refuse to be seen. The wall-mounted boxes may be mere models for groupings of larger works, or may be works in themselves. This intentional ambiguity extends to photographs included in the show, paired portraits, where false resemblance and mistaken identity might seriously undermine what a profile picture is supposed to do.

Ann LePore Mapping for Empathy (The Landscape is Deadly)
http://www.aferro.org/websitebaker/wb/pages/home.php
03/10/2012-04/14/2012
7pm-10pm

Social activism, American history, and a love of technology and science collide in Ann LePore’s recent work. “I used to think that landscape images were innocuous, boring even, until I was 16 and had re- occurring nightmares about being trapped inside a Wyeth painting. Now during my research trips to historical societies, environmental research centers and even aboard the research vessel SeaWolf, I keep one eye on the landscape, looking for correlations between my findings and their immediate natural surroundings. There are often subtle indicators in our landscape which can be interpreted to reveal what divides or unifies us.”

Structures for an Exhibition with Rory Golden
http://www.centerforbookarts.org/classes/classdetail.asp?classeventID=1280
03/10/2012-03/11/2012
10am-4pm

Students will learn three structures for artist books that unfold and hang for display in gallery environments. Rory’s “Twisted hanging book” corkscrews from the ceiling to the floor. The arched hanging book curves from the ceiling to the wall for display. The flat hanging book unfolds and hangs on the wall as a 2D image. Each collapses neatly into a pile, fitting into an envelope or box for storage; however, the magical part is that each style of hanging books allows gallery viewers to read the entire book without having to touch or turn pages. If time allows we will explore variations on each structure. Beginning students will learn bookbinding materials, tools and techniques but the class is designed for those at all levels of experience. Deadline to register: One week before the class starts.

Specializing in klezmer minus the clarinet, Golem is one of New York’s go-to bands for Eastern European folk music at its best. Performing songs in Yiddish, Russian, French, and Ladino, they dig deeply into the music’s traditions while still managing to produce “the sort of music you’d expect if the shtetl were filled with punks instead of peasants” (The Washington Post).

SANTIAGO TACCETTI Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here

The exhibition will also feature a dramatic site-specific installation “Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here” by the Berlin-based, Argentine artist Santiago Taccetti. Integrating with the Black & White Project Space’s architecture, the simple plastic structure lit from inside and filled with smoke will occupy the outdoor gallery revealing itself as an illusion on closer inspection. The illusion of entering an area clearly defined by four walls is broken as soon as the observer enters the brightly lit cube triggering the smoke machine. What is to be experienced is the infinite space without any clear distinction between the inner and outer spaces.

03/10/2012-03/28/2012
8pm-11pm

In this month long installation and group show curator Brad Truax turns the lens onto the artist and asks them to explore themselves and the way in which they make art. Are they- HYPER overactive, active, energetic; busy, fidgety; excited, frantic, frenetic,frenzied, adrenalized, feverish; or Hypo- low, under, beneath, down, below normal. The exploration of the state of mind of the artist will give incite into their work offering a glimpse at the creative process and the aesthetic accomplishments and styles which develop out of these different emotional states… It will be interesting to see if the viewer’s expectations correlate to how the artists actually approach their work- which in turn puts the lens onto the viewer, asking them to gauge their assumptions about the way in which they look at art.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 10, 6-9 PM Parker’s Box is delighted to welcome back the Berlin-based painter, Stefan Sehler. In each of his exhibitions at the gallery, the artist has never failed to surprise, always giving the impression that he has pushed his subtle reverse glass painting process and its challenging discourse to its absolute limit, before embarking on another equally challenging new proposition. Speaking in Artforum about the artist’s previous exhibition at the gallery, Donald Kuspit suggested that Sehler’s paintings “demonstrate that modernist painting is not necessarily dead – it still has some tricks up its sleeve – and show that a quasi-photorealistic picture can have a [striking] message”.

The exhibition showcases the diversity of the gallery program. The 8 artists included with works representing a variety of media (paintings, installations, sculpture, photography and design) reveal the sharp awareness they have of today’s circumstances. Ranging from Michael Van den Besselaar’s witty and wry observations on a range of familiar social subjects and Eric White’s insightful commentary on the absurdities of life, Isidro Blasco’s artist-designed architectural environments, Amy Talluto’s investigation of the in-between states of painting through quiet and expansive natural worlds and Roberley Bell’s focus on the artifice of nature, to Alejandro Moreno’s and Julian Montague’s exploration of everything from the mundane to the sublime through text and image, the works in this exhibition cover a wide range of practices, lending the exhibition an uncanny edge.

osetta Trio is a uniquely colorful and hard-grooving all-string chamber jazz ensemble led by Memphis-bred Brooklynite bassist/composer Stephan Crump with guitarists Liberty Ellman and Jamie Fox. Hailed as “a string ensemble for the new century” by All About Jazz, the group formed in 2005 to record an album of pieces written in the aftermath of 9/11. That album, Rosetta, was greeted with inclusion on multiple top ten lists and ecstatic reviews for its narrative depth and outstanding performances. With an ever-deepening rapport from years of touring and recording together in different contexts, in 2010 the trio released its second album, Reclamation (“a low-key marvel”, JazzTimes) on Sunnyside Records, including an extended work commissioned by 92nd St. Y and New York Guitar Festival.

Three Tapes by Carole Roussopoulos

One of the pioneers of video in France, Swiss-born Carole Roussopoulos purchased a lightweight Sony Portapak in 1970, at the suggestion of Jean Genet. With her husband Paul, she formed the collective Vidéo Out, which would go on to chronicle workers’ marches, the anti-imperialist movement, early feminist actions, and gay liberation meetings. Using the camera to transmit not only images of activists, but their words as well, Roussoupolos saw video as a powerful new means to give voice to oppressed groups who had been excluded from dominant modes of communication. ”What’s important to me is others’ words,” Roussopoulos once remarked, “those words you never hear.”

The late 1980’s were a time marked by economic boom and bust, racial tensions, homelessness and crime. While you could easily score drugs to get high, there were no proven drugs to cure AIDS, and depression colored the landscape. Regardless of Ed Koch’s proclamations otherwise, a malaise, a pall, a frenzied fatigue blanketed the city in a torporous cloud. 1988 – PROZAC released with marketing campaign 1990 – PROZAC achieves most prescribed status By the 1990’s, half of the people I knew in Manhattan were on Prozac – many of who still are. These works on paper capture moments and moods from the late 1980’s period in New York before Prozac. NEW YORK BEFORE PROZAC: Drawings 1985-1990, was part of a solo exhibit (The New York Series) presented at the Interkulturelle Kunstwerkstatt, Berlin Germany in 2005.

This lecture performance narrates the process of creating “The Keeper”, a limited edition artist book that tells the story of an encounter with Mustafa, a young street vender in downtown Ramallah, who sells images culled from the Internet to the public. Mustafa’s family has always worked in the photo business, bringing images from China, Lebanon and Syria into Palestine. Oscillating between her own experience of documenting the city through the images on the streets, and imagining the city from the point of view of the images, the lecture performance draws on various anecdotes and observations to weave a narrative of contemporary Palestinian popular and political history.

While it is easier than ever to pick up a camera and start shooting a documentary, the groundwork of establishing basic contracts, fundraising, and properly planning a production remains critical to the successful completion and distribution for your film. The focus of this seminar is to review these foundational elements with industry experts and map out how best to get your project off the ground. We will discuss how to set up your company and review the various release forms you’ll need when you shoot. We will cover fundraising basics with a focus on individual donors, government grants and foundations, with an overview of the key film funders. Tied to this will be information on fiscal sponsorship – what it is, who is doing it, and how the models differ. Finally, we will answer your questions about how to get started on a successful documentary production.

Proteus Gowanus is pleased to announce the first in a series of public installations, workshops and performances paying homage to the Revolutionary Battle of Brooklyn at selected battle sites throughout Brooklyn. A collaborative group of artists, writers, historians and urban planners will draw parallels between past and present as they explore the complexity and devastation of war. The project marks an early start on our next theme year: BATTLE. The first, biggest and arguably most important battle of the Revolutionary War is sometimes forgotten in the very neighborhoods where it occurred; the fields and marshes of 1776 are now a post-industrial urban landscape that includes a Federal Superfund site. Battle Pass: Revolution I at Gridspace is located several hundred feet from Bedford Pass, once a rocky outcropping that played a decisive role in the Battle of Brooklyn.
