Selections of NYC's diverse holiday traditions; plus, a chance to see The Merce Cunningham Legacy Tour, before the group disbands this month.

The end of an era began two years ago when Merce Cunningham passed away. After an intense period of mourning, plans were unveiled by the company for the ominously titled "Legacy Tour," which is in its final stages, after which the company will disband.

It's hard to come up with a brand new dance, but what might be even more difficult is to create a new version of a classic, as Pacific Northwest Ballet is doing with Giselle.

The Guggenheim’s exhibition, “Haunted,” traces the way that photography is incorporated into contemporary art from the 1960s to the present, focusing on work that was created since 9/11.

The Guggenheim Works & Process Emotion & Motion program on Feb 14 & 15 featured two top-ranking dancers (étoiles) from the Paris Opera Ballet—Clairemarie Osta and Mathieu Ganio—performing three ballet excerpts, plus the speaker Dr. Helen Fisher. Works & Process events usually trace a theme elucidated in dance performance excerpts, or preview an upcoming performance, [...]

Wright’s design of the Guggenheim stands out as one of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century, and his signature style continues to be celebrated today. Krens discusses Wright’s influence, as well as his unrealized projects, such as city [...]

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 [...]

The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia 1860-1989, at the Guggenheim, derives its title from a mixed-media work by William Burroughs and Brion Gysin in which disparate elements combine to make a new form. The show, on view through April 19, in the works years before the current economic tailspin, coincides with the moment’s need [...]

Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and Arvo Pärt’s compositions rank among the most inspirational for choreographers, at least in my neck of the woods. Reich and Glass are beloved for their muscular propulsiveness, their vigorous rhythms, their hypnotic threads. But it is Pärt’s compositions that invite collaborators into a shared space, a helium-filled elysium, or on [...]

If you recall with cynicism some of the Guggenheim’s more commercial exhibitions over the last decade (such as The Art of the Motorcycle, Brazil: Body and Soul, and the Armani retrospective), you might feel redeemed by the current show, theanyspacewhatever (http://www.guggenheim.org/exhibitions/exhibition_pages/anyspace/index.html). Or you might feel a bit duped, depending on your persuasion and/or patience. Theanyspacewhatever [...]
