A Steady Progress of Nothingness / Basim Magdy at Newman Popiashvili
Newman Popiashvili gallery is pleased to present A Steady Progress of Nothingness, the third solo exhibition at the gallery by Egyptian artist Basim Magdy. The artist will present a film, a slide projection and paintings. Magdy’s titles for his works and exhibitions always play on the idea of human achievement through the ages, but hints at the ultimate failure that occurs with each generation. Highlighting this idea in My Father Looks For An Honest City, 2010, Magdy asked his own father to reenact Diogenes of Sinope’s philosophical statement of carrying a lamp in daytime. Diogenes, who was one of the founders of the philosophy of cynicism, was most known by his repeated act of carrying a lamp in daylight supposedly “looking for an honest man.”
OLD-FASHIONED PROSTITUTES (A TRUE ROMANCE) @ The Public Theater
April 30-June 2, 2013
Snapshots from an enigmatic fairy-tale in which Suzie, the elusive coquette, brings Samuel to his knees – from where he worships a life he only half understands. OLD-FASHIONED PROSTITUTES (A TRUE ROMANCE) is an expressionistic chamber-play that twists emotional heartache into a landscape of continual mental invention, marking the return to theater of a celebrated artist whom The New York Times has dubbed “the Godfather of the American avant-garde.” Presented in association with Ontological-Hysteric Theater.

Red enameled alligator encases three
cloth sacks of unified survival. Beneath zipper
#1 waits five nickels, bottle of glittered nail
polish, miniature journal, handful of pens, only
one still wearing cap. Skip #2, it is stuck
shut and whatever is in there has been labeled
unnecessary and forgotten. #3 never closes,
most-used, most-important, must remain
accessible, always. Checkbook teeters
against tightly-capped Crazy
Glue, shades sunglasses from potential scuffs
from engraved silver cardholder, coupon folder, ring
of 37 keys, only 3 having known locks or ignitions
to turn. Ringing requires perimeter check. Pockets
bulge, aspirin and birth control semi-hidden
in tightly-snapped front pocket, portable
hard drive and note cards on Roman Architecture
threaten to spill out of left side pouch. Right
must be the never-ending musical bleeping,
incessant blipping of latest high-tech, supposedly
miniaturized, iPhone, trying to pass itself
off as both computer and lifeline when it is really
more crutch and anvil. Last stop, strap with photo
keyring dangling attachment. Favorite snapshot
of herself smiling at the world, makes everyone wonder
who or what was making her laugh that hard.

Filed under: THE WEEK/THE WEEKEND | Tags: 22, brooklyn, listings, magazine, new, the, week, weekend, york
As you may have noticed, we’ve been a little absent during your recent Weeks and Weekends. For a variety of very succulent reason we have decided to start condensing listings into a monthly version. Why you may ask? Aside from the volunteer nature of the magazine and the busy nature of our volunteers, we feel less is more and also want to give eventers the opportunity to get longer term exposure on the blog. Likewise, we’re looking forward to covering more events throughout the month. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy! Below are some FAQ’s. Anything you don’t see here that you have questions about please don’t hesitate to to contact us at the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com
1) So now that you are switching to monthly, when do I have to submit by?
The last day of the previous month. Through Feb, as we transition, we will give some leniency to submissions deadlines.
2) How do I submit?
Same old way. Send us an email at the22magazine (at) gmail with the subject line “Submission, Event”
3) Does it cost anything?
4) I don’t see my event listed after I submitted it?
We try very hard to view every event we get. Some we like better than others, and we do curate listings. Please do not lose hope though, different month means different rules and you never know when you might be the perfect fit.
5) Can I submit if my event is outside of NY?
You can but currently we only list NY (and sometimes nearby) events.
6) I sent my listing but I did not get a confirmation email?
We don’t do confirmations for listings. Sorry.
7) What are some things I can do to help increase my chances of being listed?
Info, info, info. The more the better. Links to an event page with media and press release are amazing. If it’s a theater piece we LOVE preview videos. If it’s music, we LOVE to hear the actual music. If it’s art, that’s right, PICTURES. If it’s writing, we always like a link where we can read some of the author’s work
8) I’m pissed that I wasn’t listed and I want to write you an angry letter. How can I do that?
Well, first, make sure it’s really angry, cause we don’t read medium angry letters. In fact, if you could set it on fire and leave it on our doorstep all the better. Otherwise, we do actually take complaints seriously and will happily have a chat with you about any problems. Please email the22magazine (at) gmail (dot) com Please note, we do sometimes fact check submissions. This is not a personal attack on the event, but simply a professional courtesy to our readers. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to have a chat with us. Again, we’re looking to provide you and the readers an excellent, trustworthy, reading experience.

OUTSIDER ART FAIR 2013
January 31 – February 3, 2013
Founded by Sanford Smith in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair soon became a critical and commercial success and the leading, annual event in the field of Outsider, Self-Taught and Folk Art. Recognized for its maverick spirit, the fair played a vital role in building a passionate collecting community as crowds flocked annually to New York’s Puck Building, the event’s original site during its first 15 years.
Flint and Tinder presents: Loss Machine by Kyle Loven
January 18-Feb 3
Everything is somewhere. Part installation, part image-driven theater, Loss Machine unearths a world of lost items, misplaced thoughts, and fractured journeys all housed within an intricately detailed set. Intimate in scale, this wistful one-man show combines puppets, objects, sound, and original music, in a visual exploration of loss and discovery. In a tower filled with life’s debris, a collection of characters move through an ever-changing apparatus with their shared emotional journey driving the mechanical process forward. Digging through layers of the everyday and the fantastical, the piece examines what is found when all has been lost.
Uptown Showdown: The Past vs The Future
Monday, January 28
You never know what to expect at this bi-monthly, wacky debate series that brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to face-off on a chosen topic, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? The next installment features Chris Gethard (host of the popularThe Chris Gethard Show), the new head writer for The Colbert Report Opus Moreschi, comedic musician Jessica Delfino, Kurt Metzger (Ugly Americans; Inside Amy Schumer)and Baratunde Thurston, former staff member at The Onionand author of The New York Times bestseller How to Be Black. Hosted by Matthew Love (Time Out New York).
The Design and Illustration Mix

Wednesday Jan 30th – 7:00-9:00PM

We will discuss other tactics available to all illustrators, visual designers and other creative professionals. Additionally we will look at trends both positive and negative that influence and impact the graphic arts industry and our futures. We will also ask where the work and jobs might be found today and tomorrow.
Strange Lens: Three Painters
Airplane Under Bushwick
AIRPLANE is pleased to present Strange Lens: Three Painters.
The exhibition features works by Hilary Doyle, Dan Herr and Mike Olin. These artists explore a territory between abstraction and figuration, and who present an idiosyncratic approach to art-making. All three are driven more by a mysterious inner logic than by aesthetic or narrative aims. These works do not ask for the viewer’s admiration, but rather exert their own strange perspective.
Stick Against Stone Orchestra: Get It All Out Album Release
9:30 PM – January 29
Thirty-one years ago, a six-piece band/collective called Stick Against Stone started writing songs in a dirt-floor basement of a row house near the University of Pittsburgh. Like a musical cargo cult fed by the global eclecticism of their local freeform community radio station – WYEP-FM – this “horns and percussion” outfit acquired a taste for afrobeat, punk rock, art funk, free jazz and dub reggae. Beyond the moniker of “no wave” – they wrote surprisingly deep melodic hooks amid swirling, ambitious and funky arrangements. Finding themselves with a devoted local following – but without a proper album to their name – it would be several years and cities later that they eventually broke up and their quirky, soulful songbook was lost to time.
Bark and Scream Series: Frank London / Jeremiah Lockwood’s SONG’S OF ZEBULON
January 31, 2013 8:00 pm
The Klezmatics’ Frank London and Sway Machinery’s Jeremiah Lockwood have long been trespassing on sacred ground. For this special collaboration, Lockwood & London resurrect the sounds and spirit of the golden age of khazones – Ashkenazic religious singing – and explore the music of Zebulon Kwartin. Both artists are adept at exploring Jewish music and mysticism, bridging tradition and modernity. This new collaboration allows them to explore their mutual obsession with Cantorial music, and is part of the current zeitgeist resurgence of interest in classic Cantorial music.

THE PILO FAMILY CIRCUS
DON CRISTÓBAL, BILLY-CLUB MAN
Abrons Arts Center
For centuries, the puppet Don Cristóbal — the Spanish version of Punch – has charmed audiences with his drunken, lusty billy-club wielding antics. But does he secretly struggle with his role as the Billy-Club Man and long for love and escape? Through experimental puppetry, clowning and live music, Don Cristóbal, Billy-Club Man explores the violent appetites of Cristóbal’s on-stage persona and follows him off-stage to reveal his poetic possibilities. Inspired by two comedic and surreal puppet plays by Federico García Lorca, the piece features shadow, hand, and large figurative puppetry by Erin Orr and evocative original music by Rima Fand.
Nadia Sirota: Baroque
To celebrate the release of her new album, Baroque (Bedroom Community / New Amsterdam), violist Nadia Sirota will perform music from the record, premiering Judd Greenstein’s “In Teaching Others We Teach Ourselves” for seven violas. Sirota’s unique interpretive voice has served as muse to some of the most widely respected composers of her generation, and Baroque features works written for Sirota by Daníel Bjarnason, Paul Corley, Missy Mazzoli, Nico Muhly, and Shara Worden. This album is the follow-up to Sirota’s debut, First Things First, which was a New York Times 2009 record of the year.
