Arts Brookfield has re-imagined its annual holiday festival for Brookfield Place in collaboration with the award-winning design firm the LAB at Rockwell Group. This holiday tradition in the heart of Lower Manhattan is built on the season’s traditions of sharing, giving, community, and light. Visitors will be immersed in a canopy of light emanating from hundreds of suspended lanterns. Three Wishing Stations on the ground will allow visitors to “send” a wish to the canopy of lanterns above, translating the wish into a mesmerizing display of lights and colors. For every wish sent by the public during the holiday season, Brookfield will donate $1, up to $25,000, to the GRAMMY Museum’s music education programs.

Museum of the City of New York

Performance & Protest in Public Art

Wednesday, February 28, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Performance artists Tania Bruguera and Kate Gilmore both consider questions of power and identity in their work. Politically motivated, Havana-native Bruguera explores the relationship between art, activism, and social change, often through the lens of immigration, while the New York-based Gilmore engages with ideas of femininity, gender, and sex. In this intimate conversation, the two artists will discuss their turn to performance as a medium for critiquing contemporary issues of politics, gender, and society with Risë Wilson, Chief Program Officer for the High Line and founder of The Laundromat Project. Afterwards, join them for a reception where Gilmore will stage “They Call Us a Storm,” a live, site specific performance.

This program is inspired by our exhibitions Art in the Open: Fifty Years of Public Art in New York and Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics.

$25 for adults | $20 for seniors, students & educators (with ID) | $15 for Museum members. Includes Museum admission.

On Saturday, April 21, from 1 to 7 pm on the High Line between Gansevoort and 26th Street, participants can experience the wide range of curated public programming available at the High Line. The day also highlights the sprouting spring gardens and the newly installed High Line Art group show Agora. Culture Shock events include music, dance, and spoken word performances, as well as artist projects that are inspired by the High Line’s gardens, public art, and design.

“The High Line is a space that should be enjoyed by all people, and the artists that we’ve assembled for Culture Shock offer a wide variety of work that supports our mission to further engage and celebrate our neighborhood and continue our advocacy for creative expression in New York City,” said Risë Wilson, Friends of the High Line’s Chief Programming Officer. “We hope by participating in Culture Shock that New Yorkers will get a taste of the kinds of programs we offer at the High Line and continue to come back throughout the season.”

“Culture Shock, at its core, is a celebration of a multitude of voices, perspectives, art forms,  and people,” said Solana Chehtman, Friends of the High Line’s Associate Director of Public Engagement. “We are proud to host such incredible emerging and established artists, each of whom will present work that, when displayed or performed on the High Line, brings an entirely distinctive experience to the audience and hopefully will inspire them to think about public spaces in new ways.”

Culture Shock activities include:

Ongoing: Brooklyn-based Native American poet Tommy Pico has created a spoken word soundscape inspired by the High Line’s plants and microclimates. Using the lens of reconciliation, Pico explores the relationships between the city and nature, the city’s present and past, familial relationships, and what it means to be indigenous in America. The soundscape will be available for download starting April 21 free of charge at thehighline.org.

Sunday, September 30 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

(New York, NY) – Affordable Art Fair NYC is pleased to announce a full series of programming highlighting emerging talent and thoughtfully curated exhibitions on view this fall at the Metropolitan Pavilion from September 27 to 30, 2018. In addition to showcasing original contemporary art, featuring over 400 artists exhibited by 74 international and national galleries, Affordable Art Fair NYC’s curatorial programs encourage visitors to experience and engage with special artist presentations.

The Young Talent Exhibition is a dedicated platform that supports emerging artists and curators within the contemporary art community. This fall, Affordable Art Fair NYC will present a solo exhibition by New York-based and self-taught photographer, painter, and mixed-media artist Chase Hall, curated by Lolita Cros. A native Parisian, Cros has been making waves as an independent curator with her unorthodox venue choices and unique visual lens. She is currently curator and art consultant for The Wing co-working and community spaces designed for women.

“We are excited to be giving a platform to such a multifaceted and critical artist like Chase Hall,” says Vanessa Seis, Fall Fair Director, Affordable Art Fair NYC. “His work is extremely relevant in that it addresses the visual history of racial bigotry in the United States, and I hope that this exhibition will stimulate powerful conversation among our visitors.”

Affordable Art Fair NYC’s Limited Edition Print, a print series in collaboration with a commissioned artist made exclusively for the fall edition, will feature a collection of 10 limited edition artworks by London-based artist Adam Bridgland. The screen print with spray paint overlays is a love letter to the urban wilderness that is New York City, and a thematic continuation of a sculptural work Bridgland created earlier this year.

The Curatorial Excellence Award (FKA Best Booth Award) is a continued initiative presented by Affordable Art Fair NYC to highlight thoughtful and engaging gallery presentations. The award will be granted to an exhibition of curatorial distinction and the gallery will receive automatic acceptance into the following fall edition. The winner will be selected by a notable jury including Annelien Bruins, CEO of Tang Art Advisory, Wendy Goodman, Design Editor at New York Magazine and Design Hunting, Julia Halperin, Executive Editor at Artnet, and Melanie Kress, Associate Curator for High Line Art.

Affordable Art Fair NYC expresses great appreciation to its fair partners this fall, including New Camerata Opera, The Art Therapy Project, Butterfield Catering, The Non-Violence Art Project, Van Gogh Vodka, Austin Eastciders, ShortStems, Reed Photographic, TBS Tramo, Yotel New York and SPACE design + production. Media Partners include: artnet, ARTnews, artprice.com, Art Zealous, New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and Observer. Cultural Partners include: American Folk Art Museum, ArtTable, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, International Print Center New York (ICPNY), The Jewish Museum, Tang Art Advisory and Young Professionals in the Arts NYC.

NEW YORK — Nonstop theater, music, dance a costume competition and ballroom dancing will bewitch the East Village at Theater for the New City’s annual Village Halloween Costume Ball on Wednesday, October 31 at TNC, 155 First Avenue.

Join us as the one-night fiesta takes over all four of TNC’s theater spaces, plus its lobby and the block of East Tenth Street between First and Second Avenues in a party and evening filled with performances capped with a costume contest.

Outdoor entertainment is 4-7 pm; doors open 7:30 pm. Admission is $20 with costume or formal wear required. Once inside, everything is free except food and drink, which are graveyard dirt-cheap. Tickets are available at (212) 254-1109 or by clicking the TIX link.

Customarily, more than 1,500 wildly-clad celebrants gather for dancing, dining, showing off costumes and viewing acts from the cutting-edge of cabaret and theater.

“The whole subterranean world is coming to the mainstream,” TNC Executive Director Crystal Field said. “The Circadian rhythm has been disrupted.”

In this party on a very wild Wednesday night, performances, music, dance, theater and more fill TNC as downtown becomes Halloween central.

With its Witches’ Cauldron, the event can justifiably claim to have downtown’s most sensational Halloween cafe with a variety of American and international delicacies available at peoples’ prices.

“The Witches’ Cauldron is where you get food and entertainment,” Field said of this space transformed from a theater into a dining area complete with entertainment.

Holiday dishes are contributed by neighboring East Village restaurants, including some with celebrity chefs.

You can gobble Halloween fare while enjoying spine-tingling performances by performance artists, songwriters and more.

“Hell souls are performing,” Field said of figures who perform as part of the evening’s entertainment.

Lissa Moira leads a scream contest in which the audience is asked to join in as part of this work that seeks to bring out the Halloween spirit.

“I get people on stage and I punctuate the whole piece with screams,” she said. “They scream for bottles of champagne and cash and all kinds of prizes. It’s fabulously interactive.”

Since its beginning in 1977, TNC’s Halloween extravaganza has been a point of origin for many of New York City’s most original entertainers.

Six full-length plays have grown out of playlets written for the festival and performance art found an early home in the festival.

It also has been a launching pad for such formative artists as Paul Zaloom, Alice Farley, Bloolips, The Red Mole, Penny Arcade, Basil Twist and Alien Comic Tom Murrin. Each year, many acts, skits, sketches, and skadoodles go on to become the basis of larger theater works.

TNC originated the Village Halloween Parade as part of its annual Halloween Ball, before the parade itself split off as a separate event.

Scattered through the event will be stilt dancers, jugglers, fire-eaters, Vaudeville playlets. Join us as we tap into the Halloween spirit – from costumes to other forms of artistic creativity – as the party itself becomes the biggest performance.

Theater for the New City is located at 155 First Avenue, at the corner of East Tenth Street. Reservations are strongly recommended. The TNC box office number is (212) 254-1109.

NEW YORK, NY – There are many things that make New York City a special place to be during the holidays. Nowhere else can you see the ice skaters at Bryant Park, the amazing window displays in the big department stores, and the spectacular Rockefeller Center tree. Then, of course, there are the markets.

We know our sense of community shines through when we come together, and this is one reason why our 2017 Cavalcade drew more than 30,000 visitors. Our personalized service, which allows us to connect with customers in a unique and meaningful way, is the final step in our creative process, which we think results in happier gift-givers and recipients!

Our first market will take place on Small Business Saturday weekend, November 24-25, from 11am-6pm at the Invisible Dog, located at 51 Bergen St. in Brooklyn. Next up is our week-long pop-up inside Chelsea Market, December 3-9 from 10:30am – 7:30pm, 75 9th Ave. in Manhattan. Finally, on December 15-16, visit us at the Brooklyn Historical Society from 11am-6pm at 128 Pierrepont St. in Brooklyn.

We are so proud to be the only all-volunteer, vendor-run handmade market in NYC, and we bring the same imagination that we use in our work to the production of our retail events. Each Cavalcade marketplace will offer a carefully crafted selection of vendors to make sure you have the greatest variety of handmade goods to see, feel, touch, smell, and fall in love with, including jewelry, greeting cards, art, beauty products, clothing, baby items, and more. We’ll also have interactive demos courtesy of Blick Art Materials, for you to get in touch with your inner artist, and we’ll be giving away special gifts and prizes via our raffles!

We know our sense of community shines through when we come together, and this is one reason why our 2017 Cavalcade drew more than 30,000 visitors. Our personalized service, which allows us to connect with customers in a unique and meaningful way, is the final step in our creative process, which we think results in happier gift-givers and recipients!

For 2018, we’re thrilled to be sponsored by partners who share our appreciation for handmade goods, quality, and craftsmanship: Blick Art Materials, Etsy, Fine & Raw Chocolate, and Pilot Kombucha.

Fourth Semi-Annual Spring Pop-Up On All-Handmade Artisanal Market
May 12 @ 10:00 am – 5:30 pm

Fourth Semi-Annual Spring Pop-Up On All-Handmade Artisanal Market

Sunday, May 12, 10:00 am – 5:30 pm

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) Kicks Off Its Fourth Semi-Annual Spring Pop-Up On May 12 In Collaboration With Grand Bazaar USA.

Unique pop-up shopping extravaganza will offer a juried selection of one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted, locally made, artisanal crafts and accessories/

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) in collaboration with Grand Bazaar
100 West 77 Street & Columbus Ave., NY, NY

New York, NY (April 1, 2019) –For the fourth time in partnership with Grand Bazaar USA, the NY Handmade Collective (NYHC) – formerly known as the Etsy NY Street Team – will present “The NY Handmade Collective Pop-Up Spring 2019″.  This dynamic handcrafted product showcase, which will feature a juried selection of the NYHC’s local talent, will take place on Sunday, May 12, from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, at the popular shopping destination located at 100 West 77 Street and Columbus Avenue.

“Grand Bazaar NYC firmly believes in supporting local artists, designers and craft-makers, which helps keep our city vibrant and creative,” said Marc Seago, Executive Director at Grand Bazaar NYC. “We’re thrilled that the NY Handmade Collective will once again be joining us for this exciting Spring shopping experience.”

Shoppers are sure to find a diverse selection of outstanding, one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted merchandise from over 40 talented, multi-disciplined artisans and designers from the New York metropolitan area.  The vast array of exceptional goods will run the gamut from fine art, stationery, unusual jewelry, distinctive fashions, home decor and amazing skincare products to items for children and pets.

“This year’s new and improved market is a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes, interact with and shop directly from our cadre of diverse, talented local artisans who’ll be offering special discounts and customization options on their unique products which aren’t even available online,” said Andi B. O’Connor, co-organizer.  “Situated within the long-established Upper West Side market that is the Grand Bazaar NYC, the NYHC Show will highlight the value of quality handmade crafts in today’s society when so much is mass-produced and disposable.”

The Importance of Handmade

Last year NYHC surveyed over 200 artisans to gather impressions and data on the importance of quality handmade products. At this year’s show, NYHC will have a table with information and materials on this subject, staffed by members who can answer visitors’ questions.  For example, creators of handcrafted goods are part of a community dedicated to connecting with customers and bringing back the personal touch that is so rare in today’s digital global marketplace.

Other survey findings:  Handmade products tend to be of higher quality, singular and authentic, that reflect rich cultures and traditions and an eco-friendly, sustainable, environmental awareness that is present in these artisans’ practices and processes.  Handcrafted items also nurture creativity and individuality and perpetuate the art of crafting.  In addition, handmade products are beautiful, one-of-a-kind and well-made.  As a result, they tend to be more valuable and durable than mass-produced, disposable items.

About NYHC:

Founded in 2007 and representing one of the oldest, largest and most professionally organized teams of local active sellers on Etsy, Inc., the NYHC has cultivated a long-established, local presence in the NYC metro area by hosting a number of successful and highly curated in-person markets, workshops and events:  Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, Crafts in Chelsea, and Celebrate Brooklyn, to name a few. NYHC is also known for its all-volunteer organization dedicated to the promotion and marketing of online selling opportunities on behalf of its members through its wide-ranging press outreach, expansive social media presence, informative blogs and beautiful website.

About Grand Bazaar NYC:

Open year-round and located at 100 West 77th St and Columbus Avenue, Grand Bazaar NYC is one of the oldest and largest weekly curated markets in this city with over 43,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. It is the only market with a social mission for the exclusive purpose of raising much-needed funding for the four neighboring public schools, benefiting over 4,000 children.

The 12th Annual World Science Festival in NYC
May 22 – Jun 2 all-day

The 12th Annual World Science Festival

May 22 – June 2, 2019

Announces 2019 Programming

And Invites New Yorkers To

‘Awaken Their Inner Genius’

New York, NY (May 2, 2019) – The World Science Festival has unveiled its 2019 program lineup, which presents many of the world’s leading scientists, pioneers, artists, and influential thinkers – bringing science to life in imaginative ways throughout the five boroughs of New York City.

The Festival, beginning Wednesday, May 22nd, celebrates science with original programming that includes discourse, debate, theatre, film, workshops, and interactive installations as well as events for young innovators, scientists-in-the-making, and families. The Festival transforms the city and brings the world’s leading scientists to advance our understanding and appreciation of everything from quarks to the cosmos.

Tracy DayCo-Founder and CEO of the World Science Festival, has long been an advocate of bringing significant scientific discussions to wider audiences. “We are thrilled to offer an exciting line-up of programming, with leaders in their fields engaging the public in conversations that encourage all to be champions of scientific truth and human curiosity.”

“This year we are celebrating the anniversaries of both the confirmation of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and also the Apollo moon landing, two gratifying moments of insight and exploration,” said Columbia University physicist Brian Greene, Co-Founder of the World Science Festival. “These astonishing milestones are an opportunity for us all to recognize the enormous capacity of humankind to achieve the seemingly impossible.”

Kicking off this year’s festivities, The World Science Festival Gala will be held on May 22nd, 2019, featuring an original production of Light Falls: Space, Time, and an Obsession of Einstein, which tells the dramatic story of Einstein’s electrifying discovery of the General Theory of Relativity. The production, narrated by Brian Greene, features an all-Broadway cast, innovative 3D visuals designed by the Tony Award-winning 59 Productions (“An American in Paris”), and an original score by Jeff Beal (“House of Cards”). Light Falls premieres nationwide Wednesday, May 29—the 100th anniversary to the day of Einstein’s Theory being confirmed through astronomical observations—at 10/9c on PBS (check local listings), pbs.org/lightfalls and the PBS Video app.

Now in its 12th year, the World Science Festival continues to bring the power of science to new audiences. This year’s programming will feature some of the most brilliant scientists, seasoned explorers, and influential performers, including Apollo astronaut Michael Collins, inventor of CRISPR Jennifer Doudna, chess icon Garry Kasparov, Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre, commander of the International Space Station Scott Kelly, actress and activist Marlee Matlin, renowned AI researcher Yann LeCun, and more.

A FEW HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE MAIN STAGE WILL INCLUDE:

Rethinking Thinking: How Intelligent Are Other Animals?: Intelligence was once thought to be uniquely human, but what is intelligence? Why do some species get an extra dose? And just how special are humans, really? Participants include: biologist Simon Garnier, neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel, and marine mammalogist Denise Herzing. Author, journalist, and comedian Faith Salie will moderate.

Physics in the Dark: Searching for the Universe’s Missing Matter: For nearly a century, evidence has mounted that the gravitational pull necessary to keep clusters of galaxies intact, as well as stars within galaxies from flying apart, requires far more matter than we can see. Problem is, such “dark matter” has also eluded one specially designed detector after another. Which raises the big question: What if we have failed to find dark matter because it isn’t there? Participants include: physicist Mariangela Lisanti, astrophysicist Joseph Silk, physicist Erik Verlinde, and astrophysicist Risa Wechsler. Physicist and author Brian Greene will moderate.

The Richness of Time: Time on Earth elapses at a uniform rate, so why does the human experience of time seem so varied? How do various neurological afflictions change the perception of time? And underneath it all, how does human language impact our ability to think about time and fully experience its rich and mysterious contours? Participants include: cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky and neuroscientist Dean Buonomano. Physicist and author Brian Greene will moderate.

Loose Ends: String Theory and the Quest for the Ultimate TheoryThirty-five years ago string theory took physics by storm, promising the coveted unified theory of nature’s forces that Einstein valiantly sought but never found. In the intervening decades, string theory has brought a collection of mind-boggling possibilities into the lexicon of mainstream thinking—extra dimensions of space, holographic worlds, and multiple universes. Some researchers view these developments as symptoms of string theory having lost its way. Others argue that string theory, although very much still a work in progress, is revealing stunning new qualities of reality. Participants include: physicists Lara AndersonMichael DineMarcelo Gleiser, and Andrew Strominger. Physicist and author Brian Greene will moderate.

Revealing the Mind: The Promise of Psychedelics: Nearly every culture throughout history has used chemicals that alter consciousness for spiritual exploration. In the 20th century these drugs caught the attention of scientists. Join scientists and “psychonauts” who are now picking up where research left off 50 years ago, experimenting with LSD and other psychedelics to heal—and reveal—the mind. Participants include: psychologist Alison Gopnik, addiction psychiatrist Stephen Ross, and neuroscientist Anil Seth.

Making Room for Machines: Getting Ready for AGI: The “thinking machines” that Alan Turing postulated in 1950 have already vaulted beyond us in specific arenas like chess and Jeopardy. But if we achieve artificial general intelligence, it may take only seconds for our creation to surpass us in every other arena as well. Will humans fight to restrain such super intelligence, or join forces, perhaps bringing about a new utopia? Or, will we simply and quietly become irrelevant? Participants include: writer, activist, and chess champion Garry Kasparov, computer scientist Yann LeCun, roboticist Hod Lipson, and AI ethicist Shannon Vallor.

The Right Stuff: What It Takes to Boldly GoFifty years ago, as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin bounced on the moon’s surface below, Apollo 11 Command Module Pilot Michael Collins briefly disappeared behind the lunar disk, becoming the first person to experience space entirely alone. As we set our sights on the stars, space travelers will need to cope with ever longer stretches in the lonely environs of the cosmos. What will that take? How will it affect who we are? Participants include: astronaut Michael Collins, astronaut Scott Kelly, and astronaut Leland Melvin. Journalist and producer Miles O’Brien will moderate.

FUN, FASCINATING, AND FREE ACTIVITIES FOR ALL AGES WILL INCLUDE:

Saturday Night Lights: Stargazing in Brooklyn Bridge Park: Immerse yourself in stargazing and storytelling. First, step up to a professional telescope for an intimate look at the Moon, Jupiter, and beyond. Then, sit on the grass for “Deep Field: The Impossible Magnitude of our Universe,” created by Grammy® Award-winning composer Eric Whitacre. This short film experience reveals the galaxy from the perspective of the Hubble Space Telescope as 100 members of the LaGuardia High School Senior Chorus provide a celestial soundscape. Stay for an engaging discussion with astrophysicists and the film’s creators.

City of Science: A larger-than-life touring event where the magic of science, technology, engineering, and math collide! Filled with interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, and engaging exhibitions, this free program unleashes everyone’s inner scientist.

Great Fish Count: From Lemon Creek in Staten Island to the shores of the Bronx River, New York’s waterways are teeming with life—and it’s up to you to find it! Led by  top marine scientists and biologists in 16 sites across New York’s five boroughs, Yonkers, and New Jersey, the Great Fish Count gives attendees of all ages the chance to strap on a pair of waders, cast a net, and discover the underwater world in their own backyard.

The full program lineup for the 2019 World Science Festival can be found here, where tickets for Festival events can also be purchased.
