Museums | Photography's Last Century: Exploring One Hundred Years of Photography (in-person)


Photography's Last Century exhibition celebrates the remarkable ascendancy of photography in the last hundred years. Over 60 photographs include masterpieces by the medium's greatest practitioners, such as Dora Maar, Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Edward Weston, Joseph Cornell, Diane Arbus, and more. The collection is particularly notable for its breadth and depth of works by women artists, its sustained interest in the nude, and its focus on artists' beginnings. Paul Strand's 1916 view from the viaduct confirms his break with the Pictorialist past and establishes the artist's way forward as a cutting-edge modernist; Walker Evans's shadow self-portraits from 1927 mark the first inkling of a young writer's commitment to visual culture; and Cindy Sherman's intimate nine-part portrait series from 1976 predates her renowned series of "film stills" and confirms her striking ambition and stunning mastery of the medium at the age of twenty-two.

Play | Euripides' Bakkhai: One of the Greatest Greek Tragedies Ever Written (virtual)


School of Drama at The New School presents Euripides' BAKKHAI, a new version written by Anne Carson, and directed by faculty member Dennis Hilton-Reid. Anne Carson, poet and classicist, writes, “Euripides was a playwright of the fifth century BC who reinvented Greek tragedy, setting it on a path that leads straight to reality TV. His plays broke all the rules, upended convention and outraged conservative critics. The Bakkhai is his most subversive play, telling the story of a man who cannot admit he would rather live in the skin of a woman, and a god who seems to combine all sexualities into a single ruinous demand for adoration. Dionysos is the god of intoxication. Once you fall under his influence, there is no telling where you will end up.”
