Museum of Arts and Design

Craft was once at the margins of the art world, but no longer. Today it is front and center in art galleries, museums, and fairs, widely recognized for its expressive potential and cultural significance. Assembled from the eclectic richness of MAD’s permanent collection, Craft Front & Center brings together more than 70 iconic and lesser-known works to highlight key thematic touchpoints in craft’s history that have brought us to this moment. Challenging traditional thinking of craft as separate from fine art, the exhibition reveals the field's deep engagement in art’s major movements, such as Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Postmodernism, while also launching its own revolutions, particularly the elevation of women and people of color as significant artists.

The Museum of Arts and Design collection comprises over 3,000 artworks in clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood, dating from the post-war studio craft movement through to contemporary art and design. With an aim to subvert traditional hierarchies in the arts, the collection advocates for the central role of craft in art and society. Toward that end, Craft Front & Center is organized into eight themes exploring craft’s impact. Each section is punctuated with pivotal and rarely seen works from iconic makers, such as Betty Woodman, Marvin Lipofsky, and Magdalena Abakanowicz. The exhibition also casts a fresh eye on craft’s pioneers; celebrating Olga de Amaral, Charles Loloma, Patti Warashina, and others who pushed the boundaries of materials and sought more inclusive sources of inspiration. Showcasing the diversity and expressive power of the handmade as only MAD can, the exhibition affirms craft as one of the most exciting spaces for experimentation and wonder in art today.

EXHIBITION THEMES

In the Formation of Identity
From the personal to the political, craft stimulates important conversations around race, gender, and sexuality.

In the Gallery
Beginning in the 1950s, artists engaged with traditional craft materials created powerful assertions of materiality and process that attracted museums and collectors alike.

In the Home
Handmade objects are potent receptacles of emotions and memories, infused with human warmth that enliven and enrich the home.

What Can You Do with an Object?
A look back at the seminal exhibition Objects: USA, and the works displayed whose innovations still resonate. 

What Can You Do with a Thread?
Fiber artists past and present have generated works of amazing complexity and conceptual ingenuity. 

What Can You Do with Clay?
The funny and eccentric “Funk” movement was embraced by California ceramicists in the 1960s and remains a major influence on younger makers today.

What Can You Do with Glass?
A focused retrospective of the career of studio-glass pioneer Marvin Lipofsky.

What Can You Do with Craft?
A look at the modern and contemporary artists who have absorbed studio craft’s legacy and expanded its boundaries.

We will also discuss the role of allyship and what white and non-black people of color can specifically be doing right now. You don’t have to be in the streets to be in solidarity! Bring your suggestions, questions, and willingness to learn, grow, and maybe even change your mind.

This event is a part of the National Queer Theater's Criminal Queerness Festival, which presents exciting new plays by LGBTQ artists from countries that criminalize queer and trans people. Playwright Victor I. Cazares’ work centers on addiction, freedom, and rituals of mourning and celebration. Their latest work,«when we write with ashes», directed by Borna Barzin (New York Theatre Workshop), draws from their self-identified background as a non-binary, HIV-positive, queer, indigenous Mexican artist to tell a personal love story complicated by fascism, eroticism and—ultimately—death.

About National Queer Theater's Criminal Queerness Festival: National Queer Theater's Criminal Queerness Festival (CQF) is an annual international theater festival created in partnership with NYC Pride and the Stonewall Community Foundation. The festival presents exciting new plays by LGBTQ artists from countries that criminalize queer and trans people. Presenting the work of international queer artists alongside activist talks and workshops, CQF aims to uplift the careers of these artists and raise awareness about criminalization around the world. The Criminal Queerness Festival provides a stage for artists facing censorship, shining a light on critical stories from across the globe. In order to build a truly global queer community, these writers are inspiring activism and shaping our culture towards the equitable treatment of LGBTQ people in every nation.

Seats are available via the TodayTix Lottery. Enter for a chance to win a FREE pod (two seats) starting two weeks before the show. Entries close three days before a performance at 12:59 pm ET. Enter the Lottery through the TodayTix app or by calling Lincoln Center Guest Services at 212-875-5456.

Treya Lam is a classically trained, nonbinary, Taiwanese American singer/songwriter whose joyously complex identity informs but does not define their work, whether solo or when playing with The Resistance Revival Chorus. Their strident voice, politically charged songwriting and fluent instrumental prowess on guitar, piano and strings recalls not only Nina Simone and Ani DiFranco, but also Kaki King. A regular performance veteran of past NYC Pride celebrations, Lam’s headlining Lincoln Center debut will be backed by a supporting septet of musicians and will feature music from their album Good News, songs developed during their recent Joe’s Pub Working Group residency, and brand-new work crafted during quarantine.

Seats are available via the TodayTix Lottery. Enter for a chance to win a FREE pod (two seats) starting two weeks before the show. Entries close three days before a performance at 12:59 pm ET. Enter the Lottery through the TodayTix app or by calling Lincoln Center Guest Services at 212-875-5456.

 Join us for a conversation live with Kelsey Grammer and Rachel Winter about their work and process, in-person on the JCC Rooftop. In-person tickets available here

Six time Emmy award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer and Academy Award-nominated producer Rachel Winter (Dallas Buyers Club) join us for an intimate conversation about their latest film The Space Between, Winter's directorial debut. Grammer's portrayal of Dr. Frasier Crane is one of television history's most iconic characters. In his latest film, a coming of age comedy set in LA of the 90's, Grammer plays a washed-up musician named Micky Adams whose record label is looking to drop. The label sends a young mail-room worker to remove Adams from his contract. The two develop an unlikely friendship and gain perspective from each other on the music industry, life, love…and the space between.

The Space Between will be released digitally and on VOD by Paramount Pictures on June 15th.

Doors for the event will open at 6PM EDT. The live conversation will begin promptly at 7PM. Please arrive early to allow yourself time to go through the JCC's health and safety protocols for film events. Rooftop events will have socially distanced seats available. Those who can show proof of vaccination may sit in non-socially distanced seating. Details can be found in your confirmation email.

Virtual tickets available here.

The Metropolitan Opera

In celebration of Pride Month, we’re paying tribute to just a handful of the extraordinary LGBTQ+ composers, singers, conductors, and directors who have shared their artistry with Met audiences. Enjoy performances showcasing the talents of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Jamie Barton, Thomas Adès, and more—including a never-before-streamed telecast of Britten’s Billy Budd. 

In his gripping potboiler, Puccini stirs together some of humanity’s strongest motivating forces—love and loyalty, fear and cruelty—to create an operatic thriller that sinks its teeth into the listener with the opening chords and never lets go. Taking place in Rome in 1800, the story concerns a fiery yet devoted diva, the painter/revolutionary that she loves, and a sadistic police chief determined to crush political rebellion and claim Tosca for himself. All three are among opera’s most indelible characters. In this stirring 2013 performance, soprano Patricia Racette thrills as the title character—one of her signature Met roles.
