7pm-10pm

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.

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
http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/213385
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
http://www.lehmannmaupin.com/#/exhibitions/2012-02-24_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.

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.

6 pm-8 pm

Field Projects Show #3 Wise Blood Opening: Thursday Feb. 23rd, 6:00-8:00pm Dates: Feb. 23rd- March 4th 526 W 26st Street, #807, NY, NY 10001 Features work by Christine Gedeon, Abraham McNally, Breehan James, Elissa Levy, and Matthew Craven. The works in this exhibition consider historical tracking, mapping, hunting, solitude, and back-country self-reliance. Wise Blood draws on various histories; from mass-produced Americana to personal connections with cabins and nature. The title of the exhibition refers to Flannery O’Connor’s 1952 novel Wise Blood, which highlights eccentric self-reliance and exposes the disparities between rural and modern worlds.

THE NUDIST MUSEUM GIFT SHOP: ELLEN HARVEY
http://dodge-gallery.com/cgi-bin/DODGE?s=exhibitions&v=20121614673721738569463792
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.

ALL THE INDIFFERENT CHILDREN OF THE EARTH
http://bricktheater.com/
02/23/2012-03/02/2012
8pm-10pm

The piece finds three women and one man compulsively dissecting the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, human rights, and the gender identification rules of Vermont. It’s as if four anxious, petit bourgeois strangers find themselves at 8am in the backyard of a mutual friend’s August retreat, a half-mile from the coast of Cherbourg or Seattle. Or it’s as if four precocious children were abandoned in a Math/Science Center on a rainy, late-autumn Saturday morning. Or as if people do theater, in 2012, despite…things.

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

That Old Time Religion
http://www.endofcenturynyc.com/
02/24/2012-04/05/2012
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.

PS3* PEDRO SANCHEZ3: ON THE OUTER EDGE
http://support.henrystreet.org/site/PageServer?pagename=AAC_EXH_gallery
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.

The Abrons Arts Center is proud to present me, we, a multi-platform collaboration partnering with the Dia Art Foundation’s education program, Abrons Arts Center StudioLab program, and 11th-grade Studio Art majors at Lower Manhattan Arts Academy (LoMA). Grounded by a continuously evolving installation on view at the Abrons Arts Center from February 17-March 17, 2012, me, we is an exploration and articulation of collective authorship that blurs the lines between studio space, exhibition, and public forum.

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.

The Architecture of Space
http://www.klompching.com/
02/26/2012-03/02/2012
11am-6pm

This is an exhibition of contemporary photography exploring the perception and representation of space—the collapse between public and private, it’s abstract form and its role as metaphor. In many respects, the selected artists also embody the state of contemporary photography itself; in that their artworks are not easily packaged into identifiable genres, but illustrate the blurring of those categories. This can be seen through the wide-reaching visual strategies employed, as well as the imaginative modes of production that bring attention to the photograph as an abject of construction.

Richard III
http://www.bam.org/view.aspx?pid=3692
02/26/2012-03/04/2012
00pm-00pm

Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey owns the stage as Shakespeare’s outrageous villain Richard III. At the climax of the Wars of the Roses, Richard watches his brother ascend the throne of England and confides in us—with all the profound bitterness of an outcast born with a hunchback and malformed leg—his intention to seize the crown. Navigating an imposing assemblage of some of Shakespeare’s greatest female characters, Richard—played brilliantly by the mercurial and mordantly funny Spacey—lusts for power, assuring his own bloody rise and fall.

Made By Hand
http://here.org/shows/detail/855/
02/26/2012-03/31/2012
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.

I Killed My Mother
http://lamama.org/first-floor-theatre/i-killed-my-mother/
02/26/2012-03/04/2012
7:30pm-10pm

This play tells the story of a Romanian Roma (gypsy) girl whose mother abandons her after birth. With the help of her childhood soul-mate she learns to navigate the harsh realities of her existence and to excise parasitic relationships, to “kill,” to turn her back forever even on the maternal bond, in order to discover her own extraordinary identity.

Cindy Sherman
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1170?book
02/26/2012-06/11/2012
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.

02/26/2012-04/14/2012
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.

Early Plays
http://stannswarehouse.org/current_season.php?show_id=71
02/26/2012-03/11/2012
8pm-10pm

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.

SOCIO-POLITICAL MAPS: A PARTICIPATORY PUBLIC DISCOURSE ON THE CITY
http://www.acfny.org/event/socio-political-maps-a-participatory-public-discourse-on-the-city/
02/27/2012-02/27/2012
6:30pm-10pm

On the occasion of the publication of Sophie Hochhäusl’s book Otto Neurath – City Planning: Proposing a socio-political Map for modern Urbanism (Innsbruck: Innsbruck University Press, 2011), the Austrian Cultural Forum and the Van Alen Institute present a round table discussion on the question of urban mappings and participatory public discourse on the city. Austrian philosopher, economist and member of the Vienna Circle, Otto Neurath (1882 – 1945) investigated representational maps for more than two decades of his life. In search of “humanizing knowledge” he revolutionized the discipline of chart making through the use of quantitative maps (picture statistics) accessible to a large public. In a response to the undertakings of CIAM IV, Neurath published his map “City Planning,” to emphasize that a discourse on modern urbanism allowing for a pluralism of ideas, in which a broad public could partake was long overdue.

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.

Come hear debut novelist Ramona Ausubel and her agent, PJ Mark discuss No One Is Here Except All of Us, and the journey to get this book published. “In her debut novel, No One Is Here Except All of Us, Ramona Ausubel breaks new ground, with a unique prose style that weaves a classic immigrant tale into a world of dreams. The town of Zalischick and its citizens re-write their own story, filling it with magic, hope, and a determination in the face of destruction to find new ways to begin.” —Hannah Tinti, The Good Thief

The Tobolowsky Files

7:30pm-10pm

Stephen Tobolowsky is definitely one of “those guys” in movies and TV. He has been featured in (mostly) small roles in over 200 films and TV shows. Currently you probably know him best as the creepy Sandy Ryerson on Glee or, depending on your maturity, as gonzo Hollywood producer Stu Baggs on Californication. You also probably know him from one of his most iconic roles – jovial insurance salesman Ned Ryerson from GROUNDHOG DAY. A few of you may recognize him from his dramatic roles in MISSISSIPPI BURNING or MEMENTO. And a small number of you may know him as the co-writer with David Byrne of the Talking Head’s film TRUE STORIES. Whatever role he takes, and whatever size it is, you can be sure that Tobolowsky will steal just about every scene he appears in. His unique energy and unquestionable talent make him one of the best and most recognizable character actors working today.

7:30pm-10pm

From Obama and Geithner to Summers and Orszag and a host of others, Noam Scheiber profiles the squad of elite administration insiders who have set and managed the president’s economic policies from before the start of his term in office, through the crisis and into our current prolonged recovery. Scheiber, sourced within the economic team, shares his understanding of each member of the group and how they work—or don’t work—together, peeling back the layers of each personality while revealing the pragmatism, vision and blind spots each has in the fight to resurrect the American economy.

Art Now: Aesthetics Across Music, Painting, Architecture, Movies, and More, with Leon Botstein
http://www.nypl.org/events/programs/
02/29/2012-02/29/2012
6pm-8pm

It is one of the most debated subjects of all time: What is art? On February 29, Bard College President Leon Botstein visits the Library to share his Floating University video lecture that examines this highly subjective topic. The definition of art has an enormous impact upon how the arts are — or aren’t — funded. The question of what constitutes art spills over into debates about art’s value to society — whether access to the arts is a right as basic as education or health care. A Q&A session with Botstein and the audience will follow the lecture.

Courteline en dentelles Short Plays by Georges Courteline
http://www.fiaf.org/events/winter2012/2012-03-01-courteline-en-dentelles.shtml
02/29/2012-03/01/2012
8pm-10pm

Jérôme Deschamps directs and acts in a series of delightful short plays by the witty French satirist and dramatist Georges Courteline, a contemporary of Georges Feydeau. Joined by the acclaimed stage actor Michel Fau, Deschamps pokes fun at human imperfection and the triviality of everyday life. Packed with banter and inane arguments, this performance promises to be a comical, often insightful study of human nature.

The Next Chapter Reading Series: Leap Years and Other Rarities
http://lepoissonrouge.com/events/view/3114
02/29/2012-02/29/2012
7pm-10pm

February 29, 2012 gives us a natural theme for the February show–Leap Years and Other Rarities. Maybe we’re talking about the Santa Jew Poppopp. Or maybe someone who lied to Katie Couric. Me? I’ll be reading from my memoir; telling what it was like to be a green-eyed red head trying to supervise a Muslim man in Qatar. And then I’ll give you the post script.

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.

THE MODERN BEETHOVEN
http://www.Nyphil.org/beethoven
03/01/2012-03/20/2012
0pm-0pm

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.

CHRIS COSNOWSKI American Metal
http://www.lyonswiergallery.com/upcoming.html
03/01/2012-03/01/2012
6pm-8pm

In American Metal, artist Chris Cosnowski utilizes and exploits the intrinsic value and symbolism of these treasured keepsakes. His paintings envision a nostalgic no-holds-barred America. The works allude to the idealism of American values, yet somehow the narratives speak volumes about shifting ideals via the represented objects. What appears to be solid and significant is trumped by the discovery that the metal is an illusion. These beloved objects are not made of gold but merely spray plated plastic with no real weight – an apt metaphor for a country in economic turmoil due to its gratuitous and gluttonous pursuit of all that glitters.

Mark Morris Dance Group

03/01/2012-03/03/2012
7:30pm-00pm

Mark Morris’ marvelously spirited and musically attuned dances have redefined our ideas of the body in motion.

With orchestral and choral music by Virgil Thomson (performed live by the MMDG Music Ensemble), libretto by Gertrude Stein, and illustrator and author Maira Kalman’s luminous sets, Morris’ Four Saints is grand, ebullient, and spiritually resonant. By way of delightful processions, sevillanas, and redolent folk dancing, the deliverance to heaven of the Spanish saints Teresa of Avila and Ignatius of Loyola comes to life.

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.

Tiffany Mills Company presents Berries & Bulls
http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/223636
03/01/2012-03/03/2012
7:30pm-10pm

Berries and Bulls, is an expose on the inherent tangles found in long-term relationships. Through movement and text, four people vibrating on different frequencies try to connect. They misread signals; push touching to extremes; and taunt each other into playing physically risky games. Characteristic of Tiffany Mills’* style, bold movement, surprising text, and daring partnering featuring four seasoned dancers will all play their part in this work that examines flaws and foibles revealed in relationships. Dramaturge: Peter Petralia*.

Modern Poets: Collective Task
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/events/13980
03/01/2012-03/01/2012
6pm-9pm

In early 2006, poet Robert Fitterman invited several other poets and artists to participate in a collective project: one participant would offer the group a new task on the first day of each new month, to be completed within that month, and participants would respond to any or all of the tasks. Tasks have ranged from “Create a piece around your first purchase of the month of March” to simply “One act.” The group named itself Collective Task and published its task-prompted works in 2009. Collective Task is now in its second round, with many new participants, under the curatorial care of Lanny Jordan Jackson. On this special evening, members of the group present paintings, texts, sound pieces, and photographic works made in response to the tasks they have set for each other over the years.

Marco Cappelli & IDR (Italian Doc Remix)
http://roulette.org/events/marco-cappelli-idr-italian-doc-remix/
03/01/2012-03/01/2012
8pm-10pm

IDR is the result of the artistic exchange between Marco Cappelli and Jim Pugliese, whose mutual reverence for the villages’ ritual music brought them to the following statement: reflect the process of memory’s distortion of the second/third immigrantes generation, living in the New Yorker cultural melting pot with a strong traditional background, and give back to the audience a music at the same time far from the original source – for geographic, chronological and cultural reasons – and full of tradition’s elements: impossibile to fit in any conventional standard.

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.

On Silence: Hommage to John Cage

8pm-10pm

“On Silence,” marks the centennial of John Cage’s birth. The program will consist of 13 new compositions, each 4’33” long, referencing Cage’s infamous 1952 opus of the same name in which a pianist sits at the instrument for the assigned duration occasionally turning score pages and performing nothing. Through this composition, Cage invited the sounds of the environment to enter the repertoire of the staged music. The original version will be included in the program. Thirteen young and up-and-coming composers from the US, Europe, South America and Japan were asked to reflect on what Cage means in their creative life. They were commissioned to compose a work of the same duration drawing sources from the following instrumentation: grand piano, computer sound and video, hardware technologies of choice, everyday objects and musical toys.

New York’s electro-rock outfit Heloise & The Savoir Faire released “Trash, Rats and Microphones” on April 26, 2008 via Simian Records (Elijah Wood’s new label and joint-venture with Yep Roc Records). With a live show described by Disorder Magazine as a “great big flying disco ball swerving through a relentless shower of pink glitter and synth-lasers,” Heloise & The Savoir Faire have gained popularity in the UK after making their TV debut on The Graham Norton Show and Channel 4’s Friday Night Project. An electrified collision of late-70’s disco-infused dance punk and 80’s synth-pop, the group is fronted by the charismatic Heloise Williams and backed by two dancers (Joe Shepard and Sara Sweet Rabidoux) and a full band (James Bellizia on guitar, Luke Hughett on drums and Jason Diamond on bass). Produced with and engineered by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn, “Trash, Rats and Microphones” captures the energy, sexuality and humor of the live show.

Design proposals should consider functionality. The structural integrity of the boats should not be compromised. Artists will be able to stay part-time or full-time in a boat with water & electricity for the duration of the project. The beach is five blocks away.
