Birdwatching | Bald Eagle Watch


Sick of being cooped up indoors? Set out with Urban Park Rangers on one of the many hikes and birding tours they offer. Winter is a great time to spot bald eagles. In the winter, many raptors—birds of prey—tend to fly further south to New York City in search of food. Urban Park Rangers will guide you to the best wildlife viewing spots in the urban jungle. To enhance your experience, they encourage you to bring binoculars and field guides, or ask a park ranger to borrow a pair.

For the last twenty-seven years, Heckler has surrounded herself with excellent examples by the most significant artists associated to this art niche, among them Emery Blagdon, Aloïse Corbaz, William Edmondson, August Klett, Augustin Lesage, Martín Ramírez, Thornton Dial, and Anna Zemánková.

Talk | The Crossing: Photographs


From May of 2015 to May of 2019, Marissa Roth was a passenger aboard the Queen Mary II on seven transatlantic crossings between New York City and Southampton, England. These crossings mark what could be considered her allegorical return journeys to Europe in homage to her mother and father, and, during the westward crossings, a retracing of their destiny. Fleeing what would become World War II and the Holocaust, her parents independently left their respective homes in Eastern Europe and sailed to America in late October of 1938 aboard the original Queen Mary, on which they met and fell in love. Their time on the stormy autumn seas proved to be more than just a pragmatic decision. It was also a romantic and prophetic passage, not just across an ocean, but one from fear to hope and probable death to life.

Author Reading | Phase Transition Publication Party


Coinciding with Aki Sasamoto’s Phase Transition, all are invited to celebrate the accompanying publication, designed by Kyla Arsadjaja and edited by Lydia Bell. The publication features writing by Sasamoto, Bell, scholar Rachel Valinsky, and an intimate conversation between Sasamoto and choreographer Ishmael Houston-Jones. Valinsky’s essay, “To the Limit,” explores how Sasamoto uses “the motif of the limit across forms and containers,” tracing the origins of Phase Transition to previous works exploring scientific notions of change states, hypothesis, and flexibility. The conversation with Houston-Jones delves into Sasamoto’s early influence in dance improvisation, especially as a dancer in the work of Yvonne Meier. The publication also features a series of photographs of Phase Transition in development by artist Ben Hagari.

Opening Reception | Animal, Hole, Selfie: Photographs


Artist Whitney Hubbs gives us four positions to work from here. The first three are categories in black and white – pictures that bring language into the room (“animal”, “hole”, “selfie”), jumping off points, obsessive returns, ideas that won't leave the artist or that the artist can't leave. Each is symbol, metaphor, talisman, category, and provocation. And they are, together, the armature of an amateur psychoanalysis conceived ad hoc. The fourth position (the subject / patient in my psychoanalytic metaphor) is the mirror covered in contact prints of Hubbs' 4x5 negatives. The images are of the artist herself in a detournement of low, rough pornographic pinups. These pictures are steps into the abyss doubling as chances played for connection. They are degradation staged as eroticism (and vice versa), and they open into a wealth of both/and binaries in the attraction / repulsion or sex / violence mode -- not least of which is a surfeit of animal feeling drawn tight against conceptual thinking.

Screening | Times Square Videos: An Era Gone By


An evening of Times Square videos by Charlie Ahearn reflecting life there with his wife, painter Jane Dickson, and their two children, Joe and Eve. "Doin’ Time In Times Square" (1991) is a home movie capturing the capital of sleaze in all its glory, shot from the windows overlooking Eighth Avenue and 43rd Street.

"Jane in Peep Land" (1993) is Ahearn’s art documentary about Dickson’s lurid paintings that reflect her feelings and the contradictions she experienced witnessing the neon-lit life on the streets. Ahearn will also premiere a newly finished video, "Times Square Motor Hotel" (1986-1992) (2020), unearthing fresh images from the video archive that mix personal moments and street observations capturing life in the Deuce and Times Square.
