  • Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years

    Museum of Art and Design
    2 Columbus Circle
    New York [map]
    Price: $16.00
    Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturday and Sundays 10:00pm - 06:00pm
    October 18, 2016 - March 15, 2017

    Spanning the years 1953–1968, Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is the first exhibition to focus on the early career of Peter Voulkos, whose radical methods and ideas during this period opened up the possibilities for clay in ways that are still being felt today. While trained as a traditional potter, Voulkos defied mid-century craft dictums of proper technique and form to completely reinvent his medium. He combined wheel throwing with slab building, traditional glazes with epoxy paint, figuration with abstraction, and made huge ceramic structures with complex internal engineering. The exhibition will feature approximately 31 examples from this crucial body of early work, most of which have not been exhibited on the East Coast for four decades. Also included will be three of the artist's rarely seen works in oil on canvas, which help to demonstrate how Voulkos developed his ideas concurrently in painting, sculpture, and pottery. Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is part of MAD Transformations, a series of six exhibitions that address artists who have transformed and continue to transform our perceptions of traditional craft mediums. MAD’s six fall exhibitions consider fiber, clay, and jewelry & metals, disciplines that were the bedrock of the museum’s founding mission and collection, and that continue to morph in the hands of contemporary artists today.

    2 West 64th Street

    Price: Free
    March 2, 2017 06:30pm - 08:00pm

    As a low-lying coastal city, NYC is highly vulnerable to human-induced climate change, and the sea-level rise and intensive storms that can result. NYC must also be a leader in the effort to decarbonize the energy system, a challenge encapsulated in the City’s 80x50 plan (to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 80 percent as of 2050). You can join in the fight against climate change in the latest installment of Ethics in Action. Join Columbia University Professor Jeffrey Sachs for an hour-long discussion with Dr. James Hansen, one of the wolrd's leading climate scientists. Together, they will discuss how New York City can be a leader in the fight to decarbonize the energy system. You will leave the discussion with a clear action plan to engage city officials, real estate developers, and others on the moral necessity to help reduce our impact on the environment. You'll even have the opportunity to ask a question of Dr. Hansen!

  • Atrium 360° - Dajah & the Dry Eye Crew & Sahr+ Ricardo Performing FELA aKUsTIc

    David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center
    Broadway between 62nd & 63rd Streets
    New York [map]
    Price: Free
    March 2, 2017 07:30pm - 09:45pm

    A double bill and jam of boundary crossing international soul with Bajah’s conscious blend of dancehall and hip-hop from Sierra Leone and Fela aKUsTIc’s exploration of the soulful essence of Afrobeat. With special guests. SAHR + RICARDO’s FELA aKUsTIc is a radical reinterpretation of the music of Afrobeat creator Fela Kuti. Fela’s 15 to 30-piece orchestra has been stripped down to a two-piece core and the songs considerably reinvented. Along with guests musicians, the project brings together vocalist Sahr Ngaujah, who was nominated for a Tony and an Olivier Award in the lead role of the theatrical production Fela! with Ricardo Quinones, who played guitar in the band for the show on Broadway and on its international tour. Artist Dwayne Rodgers, who most recently collaborated with fellow artist Kehinde Wiley on a video installation that has been touring museums with Wiley’s World Stage Israel project, is the executive producer and creative director of FELA aKUsTIc. After packing the national stadium for performances in their home country of Sierra Leone and contributing music to the Academy Award–nominated film Blood Diamond, African superstars Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew are poised to conquer the global airwaves with their international debut album and their unique sound, which blends the swagger and funk of hip-hop, the passion and energy of dancehall, and the socially conscious vibe of reggae. The group has generated so much buzz in the hip-hop world that major stars, including Questlove and Black Thought of The Roots, Talib Kweli, K'Naan, Res, and El-P have contributed their vocal and/or production talents to the upcoming release, helmed by the production team Fyre Department (whose credits include 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, GZA, Talib Kweli, and Justin Timberlake). With this great collection of creatives, Bajah's own star is rising as the Sean Paul of West Africa with the social conscience of Bob Marley and Fela Kuti.
