Roxy Paine, whose new installation Maelstrom sits atop the Met Museum’s roof through October, has long fooled us with his hyperreal sculptures of plants, fungi, and trees. Real and “art” specimens were indistinguishable, except that his renditions never died—although he has captured luscious produce in a half-rotten state. He’s also dealt with modern art and [...]

Zakir Hussain, considered by many to be the world’s foremost player of the Indian tabla drums, has spent a big chunk of time in New York this spring, thanks to a wide-ranging performance and education series run by Carnegie Hall. Perhaps the most public part of his visit involved a set of Carnegie concerts from [...]

At long last, this week I headed down to Poisson Rouge—the hip club at the former site of the Village Gate that opened last summer—yes, the spot that has been covered to death in the media, meaning the possibility exists that I am just way too un-cool to even set foot inside the place. Or, [...]

It’s kismet that Stephen Petronio’s recent Joyce Theater run, which ended last weekend, coincided with that of Trisha Brown Dance Company’s BAM engagement, but it proved an interesting scheduling twist. Mentor and protégé dancing across the river from one another—in Petronio parlance, recalling his memorable dance City of Twist of a several years back—you might [...]

One of the more fascinating developments in contemporary art over the past 10 or 15 has been rise of a new, far-flung class of artists from China, India, Latin America and the Middle East.

Or rather, the indoor space went from dark to light as the shades went up on windows looking out on both streets—at 7 p.m., [...]

Choreographer Joe Goode, based in San Francisco, has been making work for his company for 23 years, and visits New York once in a blue moon. The two pieces at the Joyce (through this past weekend) showed Goode’s ability to forge narrative, camp, identity issues, humor, and oh yeah, dance, into an appealing theatrical style [...]

Dance showcases can be a bit of a gamble. It’s all part of the experience, but mixed in with choice discoveries can be less compelling ones. An abundance of budding talent and a strong democratic streak (or a weak curatorial hand) can mean too-long shows. And in this city where on any given night you [...]

Robert Wilson traffics in memory, controlling the passage of time and playing around with it—with us—by juxtaposing temporal spheres. In a fascinating tribute to his collaborator, Judson movement alum Suzushi Hanayagi, Wilson created with choreographer Carla Blank KOOL: Dancing in My Mind, which premiered at the Guggenheim’s Works & Process series last weekend. It was [...]

People often use “pop-cultural landscape” to describe the terrain of commercial symbols and signs forming the mantle of modern American life, but few artists have hewed to this notion as literally as Allan D’Arcanangelo. If you’ve never heard of D’Arcanangelo, who died in 1998 at age 68, that’s perfectly understandable if a little sad. Although [...]
