Copies of Mr. MacIvor's plays will be available for purchase.The playwright's latest work, Communion, makes it American premiere at Urban Stages on September 30th. Communion explores the dark places of relations and what is needed to repair a familial bond under the pressures of religion, recovery and a ticking clock. It asks whether or not some bonds are too damaged to mend. The distance between recovering alcoholic Leda and her Born-Again daughter is filled with silence, anger and humor.  Upon the advice of a therapist dealing with her own host of troubles, Leda tries to bridge that distance and prepare her daughter for the calamity just ahead.

Gallery Talk | Artist talks about her paintings: unfolding the unknown, miscues
Jackie Gendel embraces painting as a surface of contradiction, in which divergent styles, processes, and references circulate simultaneously. Within her work, the decorative is anything but frivolous. While the paintings are produced with great care, they also require that Gendel abandon complete control. In doing so, she allows the unknown, miscues, repetitions and anomalies to unfold in a fluid examination of what is possible in the medium.

Opening Reception | Aura Satz's Her Marks, a Measure: Women in Astronomy and Ballistics
Aura Satz's first exhibition in New York explores the roles of women's labor in the history of astronomy and ballistics.

The exhibition, which includes video, lenticular prints and slide projections, questions how we interpolate or construct the gaps between bullet and hole, perpetrator and victim, presence and absence. It was presented earlier this year at the Dallas Contemporary.Preceded at 5pm by a conversation with the artist and Justine Ludwig, Senior Curator, Dallas Contemporary.

Performance | Cape Disappointment: A College Production
A decaying drive-in comes to life with stories of neon moonlight, naughty little girls, and an America you imagine remembering. So sit back, relax, refrain from loud talking and rough-housing, turn off your headlights, enjoy some tasty popcorn, put litter in its place, keep an eye on your children, think about how happy we could be, and remember that this country is full of dark, dark places along dark, dark roadways where dark, dark things can happen.
