New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Lecture |
Democratization has become a battle cry in contemporary political discourse: Celebrated and promoted for spreading the only legitimate form of government by some, criticized and rejected for serving as the core of a neo-imperial world order by others. Drawing on republicanism and critical theory, the lecture proposes a theory of domination that transcends this dichotomous view. It links a critique of power with an account of democracy and shows why both the defense and the critique of democracy promotion bear the risk of reverting from a fight against domination into a politics of domination. Speaker: Dr. Dorothea Gädeke of Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.

The show is a meditation between four new sculptures, on how things are connected: living, dead, organic, human. Each work, at it’s root, wrestles with the ontologies and hierarchies of presence that contend with our present landscape; where objects and their meaning have their tendrils spreading outward. The multiplicity of interpretation takes on a likeness of something close to us but yet constantly emerging.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Just in Time is deufert&plischke's most radical approach to audience involvement yet. Over a period of three years, they have been collecting personal memories, experiences, opinions, clichés, and anecdotes in "letters to dance" written by people in Berlin, New York, and Tel Aviv. Participants hand-write a personal letter, address it to dance, and sketch or describe a favorite movement. After each phase of collecting letters and movements in the respective cities, a final ball is organized during which the favorite movements of the inhabitants of each city become the choreographic score for a communal choreography.  New Yorkers' letters to dance were collected in Fall 2017. Now, together with the local dance artists Valda Setterfield, Janet Panetta and Brian Henry, the Just in Time project will be concluded with performed letters to dance, to include piano music by Alain Franco and all of NYC’s favorite movements. The ball will be moderated by Kareth Schaffer to guide you gently through the event. Come and bring family and friends.

With his second exhibition at the gallery, Eric Dyer presents interactive sculptures that dazzle the visitor with their electrifying kinetic energy of animated images. Inspired by pre-cinematic devices to address contemporary themes, Dyer makes animation tangible, inventing new forms beyond the traditional one-dimensional celluloid form. Obsessed with the expressivity of motion, Dyer believes that complex collages of sequential images reveal secret kinetics hidden in stasis related to the everyday world around us.

Although world famous, Harlem may be New York's best kept secret with some of the city's best architecture, food, music and people. Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

In an immense celebration befitting the centennial of Philharmonic Laureate Conductor Leonard Bernstein and his affinity for the music of former Philharmonic Music Director Gustav Mahler, the Philharmonic presents a 13-hour expedition through Bernstein’s recordings of Mahler’s complete symphonies. Bernstein’s marked scores from the New York Philharmonic Leon Levy Digital Archives will be projected in real-time. Between each symphony, special guests will read excerpts from Bernstein’s own writings on Mahler, and video clips of Bernstein talking about Mahler will be projected. The recordings were released on the Sony/Columbia label and recorded between 1960 and 1967 with the New York Philharmonic (Symphonies Nos. 1–7 and 9) and the London Symphony Orchestra (Symphony No. 8). Come for one symphony, or show your dedication and stay for them all!

For as long as any of us have been around, the canon — those books, plays, films and TV series — anointed as the most important of their kind — has been largely defined as white and male. This is a discussion on how we can make the canon more inclusive of women and people of color whose voices and experiences have been historically omitted from the cultural narratives.
