SEE: Protest and Social Activist Art

Screen Shot 2019-01-13 at 9.46.15 PM.png

The artworks in Revolution from Without... remind us of the revolutionary movements that advanced human rights and are a voice that urges us to carry on these movements. Existing power structures determine entitlement and exclusion of people; however, this exhibition suggests that social and political change can be motivated by conditions of being without: without rights, without capital, without representation.

Why Go?

This social movement art exhibition features works that echo the powerful historical movements toward human rights and address the truth of current political conditions through protest and activist art.

The exhibition is presented by The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation and features artists Tania Bruguera, Tony Cokes, Chto Delat, Raqs Media Collective, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Dread Scott, and Mark Wallinger.

Image: The Rubber Factory

The Lower East Side’s Rubber Factory presents Ondine Viñao’s solo exhibition Holy Fools. This exhibition consists of a nine channel video installation inspired by Bruce Nauman's Clown Torture (1987) — an uncomfortable work for both the viewer and the protagonist who self-inflicts various forms of torture. Viñao, a multi-disciplinary artist from New York City, contextualizes the work of Nauman into a feminine narrative through Viñao’s relationship with three female performers and their collective journaling. The aspect of journaling allows the artists to walk the viewer through the performers’ similar traumatic experience. With MoMA and MoMA PS1’s Bruce Nauman exhibition currently on view, this work feels even more relevant and important.

Why Go?

You’ll want to look away but you won’t be able to take your eyes off of these video works inspired by Bruce Nauman's Clown Torture.

Tarell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Moonlight, debuts his highly anticipated Broadway show, Choir Boy opening January 8th. Drawn from McCraney’s own upbringing, Choir Boy tackles themes of Black masculinity, homophobia, respectability, and young love, while delivering powerhouse performances of gospel music, spirituals and step-dancing.

Once again directed by Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad) and starring the supremely talented Jeremy Pope, the Broadway run is sure to impress!

Synopsis:

For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men. One talented student has been waiting for years to take his rightful place as the leader of the legendary gospel choir.

SEE: French New Wave Cinema at Film Forum

Synopsis: Paris, 1750s. Forced to take vows, rebellious nun (Anna Karina) is sadistically tortured, and then exorcised by her austere community; and at last finds relief in a new convent where she becomes the latest plaything of a Sapphic Mother Superior (Liselotte Pulver).

LA RELIGIEUSE (1966), aka “The Nun,” is a tour de force for both iconic actress Anna Karina and New Wave director Jacques Rivette. Based on the novel by Enlightenment philosopher Denis Diderot, LA RELIGIEUSE is a diatribe against religious abuses of power. It was actually rewritten 3 times before passing French censors only to be temporarily banned upon its release. 50 years later, LA RELIGIEUSE has been digitally restored from the original film negative by Rivette’s widow, L’Immagine Ritrovata, and Studiocanal.

Straight from Cannes Film Festival 2018, it will play at Film Forum until January 17th, after which it will move on to Laemmle's Royal Theater in Los Angeles for its final U.S. tour—  So be sure to take advantage of this exclusive cinematic experience before it’s gone!

hearts-for-michelangelo-lf.jpg

The Bowery Gallery in Manhattan welcomes you to attend their 50th anniversary exhibition showcasing works of their exceptional artists. 50 years ago, the Bowery Gallery began as a collaboration among artists hoping to contradict commercialism within the fine art industry. Today the gallery continues their mission by representing a carefully curated selection of passionate artists.

Bowery Gallery distinguished itself as a unique haven for emerging artists creating mostly figurative art in a time when abstract art reigned.  Despite the diminishing popularity of figurative/representational art during the 60s and 70s, the founding Bowery Gallery artists were drawn to its ability to portray a narrative story.

“It was a gallery of artists united by a shared entrepreneurial spirit and, more importantly, a passion for keeping representational painting alive,” said early member Anthony Santuoso.

Another early member Barbara Grossman stated, “One of the main achievements of the gallery is that we have survived and evolved with our principles intact. Figuration or representation is not necessarily the criterion—Bowery Gallery has placed its priority on the expression of a visual language through formal means.”

Visti Manifesto: 50 Years On at Bowery Gallery through January 26th. Opening reception is January 3rd.

“Did Jews discover Chinese food on Christmas, or did Chinese restaurants discover Jewish customers?”

That is the age old question posed by the Museum of Food and Drink this holiday season, as they continue Chow— a monthly after-hours series celebrating the impact of Chinese cuisine on New York City. Featuring live chef demonstrations, music, cocktails, engaging talks, and special performances, each month’s event relates to a specific theme. This month’s theme? Chow x Judaism.

The tradition of Jewish people eating Chinese food on Christmas exemplifies that classic image of New York as one big cultural melting pot, a city where people of every ethnicity, nationality, and religion might find themselves sitting next to each other on the subway… or even spending christmas eve together. With Chow x Judaism, MOFAD explores how immigration patterns fostered culinary cultural exchange between these two historical communities of NYC.

Chef Julie Cole of Nom Wah Tea Parlor will teach a live chef demo, preceding a lively performance from comedians Mic Nguyen and Fumi Abe, Co-Hosts of Asian Not Asian podcast, and a presentation from Rabbi Joshua Eli Plaut, Author of A Kosher Christmas: 'Tis the Season to Be Jewish.

Founded by Alexander Olch, Metrograph specializes in 35mm screenings (of course…), but also features a Commissary restaurant, a balcony lounge, a bookstore, and a candy shop. A venue as much inspired by the glamour of 1920s New York cinema houses, like the Beekman, the Plaza, and the Ziegfeld (all closed today), as by the iconic eateries of the Old Hollywood studio backlots, frequented by the iconic stars, writers, producers, and stagehands of the Golden Age of Cinema.  

Attend Metrograph’s 2018 Holiday Book Fair, and peruse hundreds of newly acquired vintage cinema books, rare periodicals and out-of-print monographs. Take home a signed copy of Ethel Merman’s autobiography, or a 1934 issue of Experimental Cinema, focused on Eisenstein’s ¡Que Viva Mexico! Vendors include: New York Review Books, Posteritati, Light Industry, Grove Press and more.

Everyone has at least one friend who loves watching old movies, who wishes they could live life in black & white celluloid. Buy that friend’s perfect holiday gift at Metrograph... or anyone else with a penchant for kooky antiques.

Tickets are now on sale for the Atlantic Theater Company’s Blue Ridge—an unapologetically southern, razor-sharp, dark comedy written by Abby Rosebrock (Dido of Idaho), directed by Obie Award winner Taibi Magar (Is God Is, The Great Leap). Those well-versed in the Off Broadway scene will remember the Atlantic Theater Company as the boundary-pushing theater behind Tony-award-winning musical The Band’s Visit… but Blue Ridge is an entirely different kind of play.

Set in Southern Appalachia, Blue Ridge tells the story of Alison, a progressive high-school teacher with a rage problem who retaliates against her unscrupulous boss, and spends 6 months in a church-sponsored halfway house, “where she attends to everyone’s recovery but her own.” A tale of southern hell-raising, heartbreak and healing.

Starring: Marin Ireland (Tony Award nominee and Theatre World Award winner for reasons to be pretty), Kyle Beltran (In The Heights, The Cherry Orchard), Peter Mark Kendall (Six Degrees of Separation, The Rose Tattoo), Nicole Lewis (Hair, Rent), Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen), and Chris Stack (Ugly Lies The Bone).
