Elliott Hundley's intricate and immersive works evolve from his historical research on theater, literature, and film, emerging in this exhibition from an exploration of Antonin Artaud's enduringly imperative play 'There Is No More Firmament.' Written in the 1930s and set in an imagined year 2000, the script recounts a society's frenetic response to an imminent cataclysmic event. Replete with cacophonous sound, jarring light and fitful movement - a mesmerizing intimation of synesthetic experience - the text conveys a sense of anxiety and uncertainty. (more...)

Gladstone Gallery is pleased to present an installation of new paintings by Andro Wekua. Through a practice that includes film, sculpture, and collage, Wekua works in the ambiguous half-light of memory, fantasy, and history. He offers fragmented narratives, part objects, and doubled figures as meta-fictions of a self that skid against autobiographical and historical specificity. (more...)

Take in the sights, sounds and smells of New York City, seen from a unique perspective. Gracie, an English cocker spaniel, sniffs out the best the Big Apple has to offer and shares her impressions in a new children's and dog-lover's book released by Dog Ear Publishing. It's the third book in a series of Grace Guides.
'The Gracie Guide to New York City' takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the city's highlights from renowned buildings such as the Flat Iron Building, Chrysler Building, New York Public Library and Little Church Around the Corner to cultural destinations such as the Guggenheim Museum, Cloisters, Museum of Modern Art, Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial and Lincoln Center.
The Plaza Hotel (more than 100 years old) and its famous fictional resident Eloise are one of Gracie's favorites, as is the building that seems as if it's been named after her: Gracie Mansion, which housed several New York mayors after serving as an ice cream parlor, school and a museum. She also describes shopping, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santa's arrival and Christmas at Rockefeller Center: all magical moments.
'Gracie's Guide' includes tips for getting along with doormen and friends at Madison Square Park's doggy playground, and she can't pass up a chance to recommend a few restaurants. Charming illustrations with plenty of personality - created by Anne E. Moses - capture the spirit of the city and its many attractions for young and old.
Moses has lived in Switzerland, Italy, Greece and the United Kingdom. The author and illustrator was born in the United States, but she and her husband, Bill, who live in Athens, Greece, travel extensively with Gracie. Moses also wrote the companion books 'The Grace Guide to Good Manners for Proper Pooches' and 'The Grace Guide to Her Really Fun ABCs,' as well as the illustrated children's bedtime story 'Gatos Musikos: A Secret Told by the Moon.'
Gracie, an English cocker spaniel, was born in Hungary. She loves to swim in the sea and go on adventures. She and Moses plan to pair up again to create other Gracie Guides featuring cities around the world.

For a new opera to have its second major showing less than four months after its premiere is unheard of—but then BREAKING THE WAVES, based on the Lars Von Trier film of the same name, isn't just any opera. This triumph by composer Missy Mazzoli, librettist Royce Vavrek, and direction by James Darrah—with a star-making turn by soprano Kiera Duffy in the central role of Bess—debuted at Opera Philadelphia last September and is having its New York premiere on January 6-9, 2017, over the first weekend of the Prototype Festival at NYU's Skirball Center.

On paper, it might seem that Kaija Saariaho's L'AMOUR DE LOIN (LOVE FROM AFAR), libretto by Amin Maalouf, couldn't possibly fill a stage the size of the Met's: three characters and a chorus that bobs in and out of the action. Yet, in action, this breathtaking, shimmering piece not only seems at home--particularly in the able hands of soprano Susanna Phillips and the Met orchestra under the Finnish conductor Susanna Malkki in Robert Lepage's production--but it's hard to imagine hearing it any other way.
