This tour covers the middle zone of the commercial core with its 1980s skyscrapers of the original World Financial Center by architect Cesar Pelli, as well as the expansive North Cove Marina and its public realm. This walk investigates how the planning concept of public-private partnership was both the principle and economic engine of the Battery Park City project and how the goal of opening the waterfront to public access and recreation was realized over three decades.

Book Signing | 2 Art Books: River’s Dream / Contact High


River’s Dream is Curran Hatleberg’s complete realization of the series exhibited at the 2019 Whitney Biennial. Hatleberg is known for traveling America, guided by intuition, to create scenes of American life and landscape. Working collaboratively with the people he meets, he recounts intimate stories of family and community. Here, Hatleberg centers his narrative on the dog days of summer. Sweltering heat, dripping humidity, lush vegetation, and screaming insects– River’s Dream is a pulsing and episodic hallucination of life lived outdoors. In these sixty-five photographs, we move through swamps and groves, front yards and junkyards, encountering moments of haunting mystery and beautiful impermanence. Heightened by formal repetition, echo, and refrain, everyday scenes take on surreal, allegorical qualities. In the end, Hatleberg leaves us with the impression of memory, where the past is never gone, but appears and reappears endlessly, as in the flickering of a dream. Contact High by D’Angelo Lovell Williams offers an expansive engagement with the visualization of desire and depiction of the Black body. Williams’s narrative images reflect the many forms in which Black queer people exist and have existed historically within each other’s lives, picturing them as sitters, lovers, caregivers, or shadows. Williams’s work is guided by their life experience and an interrogation of their own perspective, as well as wider questions around the representation of race, class, sexuality, gender, and intimacy. The title Contact High references the importance of touch and gesture in Williams‘s work, and alludes to heightened senses and intuitive movement.

Opening Reception | Francine Hsu Davis: Past, Present, Future


A solo exhibition of recent work by Francine Hsu Davis whose large-scale oil paintings emerged during the pandemic. In her recent work, Francine captures the rawness of the reality during lockdown and quarantine by peeling back the layers unlike in her heavily layered older paintings. From isolation to over-saturated togetherness, Francine’s experience of lockdown is portrayed through the fibers of her painting brushes and the verticality of motion, which is the artist’s translation of increased family members’ hair grooming needs. As a whole, the repetition of the pandemic routine along with abrupt disruptions emanate through gestures onto the canvas. Rooted in the exploration of culture and place, the marks she made are the ones that are “underneath” this moment in time. With each series of paintings, Francine works to catalog a certain cultural experience, whether it represents a specific time or place, a familiar color palette, or energy of movement.

Opening Reception | The Bone That Sings Was Mine: Nine Artists


This show presents nine artists whose work is deeply rooted in the body, transmogrifying bones and flesh. The Bone That Sings Was Mine takes it’s name from a dissident poem by Lisel Mueller which broaches the question - who was I and what will I leave behind? The idiosyncratic, discordant and confusing experience of having a body and attempting to navigate the world is all preamble to this striving. We learn to tell stories, sing songs, make pictures and objects, and hope they capture the tone, the mood and the indescribable mixture of feelings we feel because we hope it will connect us to our fellows in this life. Likewise, we want to be known to each other, even after death.

Play | The Winter's Tale: Rarely Staged Shakespeare Drama


The Drilling Company returns with this unique offering or ourdoor Shakespeare. The Winter's Tale is a rarely-produced curiosity of the Shakespearean canon. Director Hamilton Clancy is re-envisioning the story of kings who are cruel without cause into a modern-ish tale of a highly dysfunctional dynasty in Manhattan and upstate New York. Clancy has couched the play in the modern world to reflect the tensions of our time. Jealous King Leontes, the play's central character, cannot accept truth that is self-evident and issues of probity and deception dominate the play, as in America today. Clancy asks, "What proof do you need to know something is a lie? And how easily will we accept a lie if it suits our expectations?" He asserts that the January 6 Committee's hearings made this aspect of the play impossible to ignore.

The platinum-selling Squirrel Nut Zippers never fail to get feet moving with their irresistible blend of hot jazz, swing-revival playfulness, folk storytelling, and off-kilter musical wit. Their latest album, Lost Songs of Doc Souchon, is "inspired by all of the mysterious characters from the history of New Orleans jazz music," says bandleader Jimbo Mathus. Exploring this universally beloved music while embracing the personable figures who give it such character is, in a nutshell, what makes this ensemble such a vital force and ongoing audience favorite.

Jazz | One of New York's Best Jazz Pianists


In a jazz world brimming with brilliant and adventurous pianists, Marc Cary stands apart by way of pedigree and design as one of New York's best jazz pianists. None of his prestigious peer group ever set the groove behind the drums in Washington DC go-go bands nor are any others graduates of both Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln's daunting bandstand academies. Cary hails from a musically literate family--his mother is a cellist; his great grandmother was an ivory-tickler in silent movie houses back in that day who also rocked barrelhouse and stride duets with Eubie Blake. Ellington trumpeter Cootie Williams was a cousin of Cary's grandfather.

Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O'Hara (Slave Play, The Public's Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare's most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
