Tackling sustainability in sporting events

At the recent Super Bowl, the NFL focused on sustainability more than in past years with its Ocean to Everglades (O2E) initiative throughout South Florida. Efforts included education on invasive species, beach cleanups, food recovery and recycling initiatives. These conservation efforts are part of a larger trend internationally to shrink the carbon footprints of major sporting events. “Sports is one of the few avenues which can unite people of all different races, creeds and social status,” Mat...

New York Magazine Spotlights Destination Crenshaw Project

New York Magazine profiles the efforts to construct Destination Crenshaw, a new social and arts site akin to New York’s High Line, which many see as a way to continue the healing and development of a long-neglected community. “It’s wide enough to be a real place for gathering, sitting, and hanging out,” says architect Zena Howard. “There are […]

Tough Talk On Theatre Diversity Efforts

I am a white, male, liberal administrator working in New York’s nonprofit theatre community. I see firsthand how the word “diversity” has kicked up a lot of dust throughout the industry. Yet for as long as we’ve been having conversations, and task forces, and panel discussions, and industry-wide conferences, I’m still struggling to see how this word aligns with clear, intentional, or lasting change. – Howlround

How Musicians Are Starting To Grapple With The Climate Impact Of Touring

“It seems to me that the only solution commensurate with the scale of the problem is fundamentally changing the way musicians work. We have to stop seeing it as reasonable that we’d play in Barcelona one day, London the next, and New York two days later. And stop seeing it as reasonable that, at a big festival in Barcelona, fifty thousand out of the hundred thousand people there have flown from the U.K. to attend.” – The New Yorker

Medea - Hell Still Hath No Fury...

Reviewed by Judd Hollander Director Simon Stone has staged his new adaptation of Euripides' classic revenge story Medea, now at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, on a white background. Bob Cousins’ set being a literal blank canvass as it were. The idea apparently to strip the piece down to its bare essentials, thus providing a penetrating look at the tale itself. Stone previously putting forth a similar premise in his terrific production of Yerma, seen in  New York  in 2018 at the Park A...

Coronavirus Is Devastating The Arts In China

“Movie releases have been canceled in China and symphony tours suspended because of quarantines and fears of contagion. A major art fair [and a performing arts festival] in Hong Kong [were] called off, and important spring art auctions half a world away in New York have been postponed because well-heeled Chinese buyers may find it difficult to travel to them.” – The New York Times

What Can the City Learn from the Country? Upcoming Rem Koolhaas Exhibition at the Guggenheim

It's been nearly two years since I gave up my 2,000-square-foot loft in SoHo, in a building I'd lived in for twenty years. I was born in New York and figured I'd die in New York. But I knew I'd peaked--if I stayed in New York, I'd never do better than that loft--and, worse, had gone into decline; newcomers had altered the city into something I could no longer adapt to.The farm I live on now is the exact opposite of New York City in nearly every way I can think of. I have learned a lot out here a...

What Do We Want From History?

What might I want history to do to me? I might want history to reduce my historical antagonist—and increase me. I might ask it to urgently remind me why I’m moving forward, away from history. Or speak to me always of our intimate relation, of the ties that bind—and indelibly link—my history and me. I could want history to tell me that my future is tied to my past, whether I want it to be or not. Or ask it to promise me that my future will be revenge upon my past. Or warn me that the pas...

Penultimate’s Dazzling DIY-Influenced Collection

Garments that test the boundaries of high-end fashion The third collection from NYC-based designer Xiang Gao’s Penultimate label—titled “Good Night, God Bless, Beautiful Boy”—blurs the boundaries of both gender and garment.

The Rich History of Interior Design Gets Its Due in a New Exhibit at the Vitra Design Museum

The world certainly doesn't suffer from a shortage of magazines, coffee table books, and TV programs dedicated to the domestic interior, but compared to other design disciplines, interior design has long lacked a serious discourse around it. Curators at Germany's Vitra Design Museum are aiming to rectify that with a new exhibition, Home Stories. Where our Instagram feeds are clogged with much of the same imagery and sources of inspiration, the exhibition aims to show the rich evolution of interi...

NYT Reports on Fading Facade of Edvard Munch’s ‘Scream’

Edvard Munch’s Scream is fading, and scientists in Norway and New York are working to unravel the issue with the painting, the NYT reports. “There tends to be an interest in the bigger-name artists, for obvious reasons,” says Dr. Nicholas Eastaugh, founder and chief scientist at Art Analysis & Research. “But actually these are problems that will affect all artists […]

Edward Munch’s ‘The Scream’ Is Fading. Scientists Are Figuring Out Why

“Since 2012, scientists based in New York and experts at the Munch Museum in Oslo have been working on this canvas — which was stolen in 2004 and recovered two years later — to tell a story of color. But the research also provides insight into Munch and how he worked, laying out a map for conservators to prevent further change, and helping viewers and art historians understand how one of the world’s most widely recognized paintings might have originally looked.” – The New York Times

This May Be The Best Time To Go To The Movies On The Big Screen

Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Theatre, which has regularly been selling out his Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood since last year, is but one of many arthouse cinemas being bought, refurbished, and revived by owners with singular visions. Netflix took out a longterm lease on New York’s Paris Theater and is in talks to buy LA’s 1922 Egyptian Theater.

Japanese Cook Draws Every Meal He Eats, Now Has 32 Years' Worth

One of the more surprising things that happened in my high school: There was a kid I'll call Sal who was a jock through-and-through, athletic, competitive, football star, his dad was one of the coaches. Junior year Sal badly injured his knee and was out for the season.Sal would sit on the sidelines, still wearing the team jacket, to watch all the practices. One day I noticed he had a sketchbook with him. He'd taken up drawing to idle away the time. Then he realized he loved it.By senior year Sal...

Extreme DIY Car Side Protection for Parking Lots

For years I've bitched that car designers don't take certain aspects of real-world use into account. Case in point are these stupid aftermarket bumperguards I'd always see when I lived in New York, to avoid scuff marks from parallel-parking contact:For suburbanites who often park in lots or garages, the damage comes from the side, as some motorists swing their doors open carelessly, dinging your car. Well, the owner of this car has apparently had enough of that, and takes the extreme step of zip...

BTS’ Latest Power Move Is Connecting People Through Major Works of Public Art

Is it a web? A nest? A trap? According to British sculptor Antony Gormley, the new public art installation at New York’s Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 3 is all of the above. “New York Clearing,” which opened to the public on Feb. 5 and will remain on display through March 27, is one of five site-specific projects helmed by K-pop supergroup BTS. Technically, it’s part of promotion for the group’s hotly-anticipated upcoming album, Map of the Soul: 7, out later in February. But the art is meant to...
