Exhibitions: Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui
February 8–August 4, 2013
The first solo exhibition in a New York museum by the globally renowned contemporary artist El Anatsui, this show will feature over 30 works in metal and wood that transform appropriated objects into site-specific sculptures. Anatsui converts found materials into a new type of media that lies between sculpture and painting, combining aesthetic traditions from his birth country, Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and the global history of abstraction.
Inspired by the real-life sex scandal that rocked Britain in the early 60s, English composer Thomas Adès’ 1995 chamber opera returns to BAM 15 years after its New York premiere at the BAM Majestic Theater (now the BAM Harvey Theater). In this new production from New York City Opera, director Jay Scheib presents his genre-defying vision, integrating technology and daring physicality to this modern opera that plays off the public’s obsession with the tabloid controversy surrounding a series of Polaroid photos of Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, dubbed the “Dirty Duchess.” Through the prism of Campbell’s life story, and featuring Phillip Hensher’s libretto, Powder Her Face explores the intersection of gender, politics, and power.

DON CRISTÓBAL, BILLY-CLUB MAN
Abrons Arts Center
February 15-March 3
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.

The Foundry Theatre’s Good Person of Szechwan
Can we practice goodness and create a world to sustain it? In Brecht’s comic and complex play, this question is raised by one of his most entertaining characters — Shen Tei the good-hearted, penniless, cross-dressing prostitute, who is forced to disguise herself as a savvy businessman named Sui Ta so she can master the ruthlessness needed to be a “good person” in a brutal world.
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.

Where: Con Artist
When: 07.05.2012 to 07.27.2012
Rachael Senchoway’s “Luminous Opera” reorders experience. Neons, glitter, and polka-dots gild references to Toulouse-Lautrec and Fragonard. Fantasy elements are synthesized through ambiguous time periods – frosted with decadence and kitsch, sprinkled with Victorian wigs and prissy Rococo faces. Rachael Senchoway seeks to free images from their historical confines, to re-contextualize and disorient dated themes. Senchoway wants her work to be unabashedly itself, no matter how fleeting.

In the 1940′s, the pioneering Banda El Recodo started mixing up traditional brass band tunes with contemporary Mexican music – mostly ranchera – and soon transformed the idiom into a powerful new popular genre. In the 1990′s, banda music experienced a renewal, especially among young Californian Mexicans, many of whom have family roots in Sinaloa. Banda music’s popularity exploded in Mexico as well and has become the new urban music of choice

Mapping the Equivocal (Phillip Buntin, Derek Lerner and Robert Walden)
Where: Robert Henry Contemporary
When: July 13 – August 12, 2012
A map is a representation of space or place, or of phenomena as they exist in space. They project a three-dimensional space on a 2-D plane, usually much smaller than the actual space being mapped. The best maps are often considered to be the most accurate ones, however, the assumptions, intentions, biases and preferences of the mapmaker subjectify every map. Maps convey nonlinear and simultaneous knowledge. In a single glance a viewer can tell what’s going on over the whole map at a single moment in time, a Gestalt. The three artists in this exhibition use what could be considered “thematic maps” to explore ideas related to hermeneutics, biology, environmental degradation and ontology.
…Is This Free?
When: July 6 – September 22, 2012 Opening receptions will take place on: Fri. July 6, Fri. August 3, Fri. August 31
Curated by Marco Antonini, this project will consist of three exhibitions, featuring artworks, ephemera and publications that have been mostly conceived and produced to be freely distributed. Historically relevant artworks, ephemera and publications loaned from private collections will be presented side by side with contemporary work by emerging artists, including a series of project-specific artworks commissioned to emerging artists. Community high-school students and members of our audience will be involved in the production of open-source artworks and instructional pieces, producing work that will ultimately become part of the three exhibitions.

The Center is pleased to continue its series of Art Study Tours. Class will be taught off-site, behind-the-scenes at various institutions, collections, and artists’ studios. This summer series will take advantage of the cultural resources in New York City and will focus on color and the uses and making of pigments. Consisting of 3 visits throughout the city this July and August, students may sign up for all three in the series or just for one class, each taking place on a Thursday afternoon.
Illuminating Fashion at the Morgan Library and Museum. Visit this special exhibition and discover the uses of color in medieval manuscripts with an expert in the field, Karen Gorst. Drawn from the Morgan’s collections, over fifty illuminated medieval and Renaissance manuscripts and early printed books are featured in the exhibition. Join us and discover the difference between the depictions of contemporary fashions and the actual colors used in clothing of the time period. Students will discuss from a historical perspective the process of making paints and dyes. The exhibition will be used as a backdrop for a discussion on the different artistic techniques employed to produce the color in medieval manuscripts and on fabric from the medieval period.
Please join Asya Geisberg Gallery for the second annual Chelsea Art Walk on Thursday, July 28th from 5 – 8 pm.
At 6:15 pm we will host a wine reception and talk with the artists Thomas Bangsted and Allison Gildersleeve about the exhibition “The Woods are Lovely, Dark, and Deep”.
More than 125 galleries and institutions participating in Chelsea Art Walk 2011 will be open for extended hours, artist talks, receptions, and other special events to showcase the vibrancy of the summer arts scene in Chelsea.

Painting: a process, a reflection, an expression.
With the series “Confluence,” Jess Hartely explores all-over abstraction. She begins her work by creating a series of thin layers from which the painting begins to emerge and take on its own form. Depth and color develop as the painting is built up with each layer. She uses masonite board because it resists the water and does not absorb it like canvas would. This extended period of fluidity allows her to explore risk and uncertainty. For Hartley, abstraction is all about the experiment. The work in this series is rooted in Hartley’s own imagination, but follows the rules of experimental process that she has developed.

A Rite of Return
Wednesday, July 27, 7pm, $10/$8 BHS Members
Out of an anonymous 1870 pocket-size diary bestowed on historian Ben Feldman, a fantastic story emerged, and a 100-year old rent in the cloth of a family’s history was repaired. Feldman will share the tale of Henry Knight Dyer (1846-1911), Brooklyn born and bred, who rose from a modest Fort Greene home and his first job as an office boy in the Dennison Paper Products Co. to become president of that multi-national enterprise at the turn of the twentieth century. Dyer’s daily scribblings in a cheap paper volume, as a single 24-year old living in Brooklyn and working in lower Manhattan, inspired Feldman’s lengthy journey for the truth of this man’s life and his wife’s sorry end after less than a year’s widowhood.

A live automata demonstration and illustrated lecture>by Jere Ryder, Conservator of the Guinness Collection of Mechanical Musical Instruments and Automata at the Morris Museum
Date: Friday, July 29th
Time: 8:00 PM
Presented by Morbid Anatomy
The Guinness Collection of Mechanical Musical Instruments and Automata at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey is one of the finest collections of automata–or moving mechanical toys popular in the 18th Century and 19th Centuries–in the world. Compiled over 50 years by heir to the Guinness beer fortune Murtogh D. Guinness (1913-2002), the collection features scores of immaculately preserved historic automata–many of them produced in 19th Century France–with subjects ranging from snake charmers to magicians, singing birds to anthropomorphic monkeys, Cleopatra in her death throes to a waltz-playing Mephistopheles; it also includes a number of mechanical musical instruments and a variety of programmed media ranging from player piano rolls to pinned cylinders.
PAPACOOKIE: Flight of the Fancypants w/ ENID ELLEN (+many more.)
High above the lusty and lo-hanging midnight mist, we’ll gather like usual on floor number 8 but this time for something altogether different. Tonight Papa-C is a strange place. A spiritual place. A resplendent place. A haunted place. A place of sad, seductive glamour. Velvet. Sincerity. Lips. Pathos. Pretension. Rococo Red froufrou finery. It’s summertime so wear something appropriate—like a 2-piece bathos suit with a dead poodle pattern and a locket around your neck. Lots of sunscreen, too!

Im Schatten der Made (In the Shadow of the Maggot) June 30 – August 12, 2011
Im Schatten der Made (In the Shadow of the Maggot), 2010, 74:16 minutes Written and directed by John Bock. With: John Bock, Matti Isan Blind, Heiner Franzen, Friederike Kempter, Adrian Lohmueller, Linnart Schneider.
Camera: Rene Gorski Music: Richard Siedhoff Produced by John Bock, Anton Kern Gallery, Museum Tinguely & Universal Museum Graz.
Styled after 1920s German Expressionist films, Im Schatten der Made (In the Shadow of the Maggot) tells the story of an artificial creature, an automaton that is created from biological materials and resembles a human. For falling in love with a human, the android is brutally punished and destroyed, while his human lover Merle is incarcerated and humiliated. In great secrecy, Merle attempts to recreate her loverʼs body out of saliva and bread with surprising consequences…

Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)
FREE. No RSVP necessary
Please join us for the launch of Cabinet editor Christopher Turner’s book Adventures in the Orgasmatron (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), which tells the story of the pre-1960s sexual revolution in the US, one led by expatriated European thinkers who saw a vast country ripe for liberation.
Central to this narrative is the orgone box—a tall, slender construction of wood, metal, and steel wool. A person who sat in the box, it was thought, could elevate his or her “orgastic potential”—ridding the body of repressive forces and improving sexual potency. Norman Mailer, Saul Bellow, J. D. Salinger, Allen Ginsberg, and William Burroughs sat in an orgone box, seeking synthesis of sexual and political liberation. Woody Allen satirized it as the Orgasmatron.
