'It can be uncomfortable': how a New York farmhouse is facing its racist past

In a new exhibition, three artists reckon with the history of slavery at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum with a range of challenging piecesWhen people think of buildings in Manhattan, chances are they think big and brash, cloud-piercing skyscrapers for tourists to marvel at.But the borough is also home to the far more modest Dyckman Farmhouse, a white clapboard home built in 1765. It’s the oldest farmhouse in the city, and just off 204th Street in Inwood, once home to Dutch farmer William Dyckman, ...

As United Citizens Brigade Falters, Alums Found New Improv Theater

“Per the theater’s mission statement on its website, the Squirrel’s goal is to become ‘New York’s premier destination for sketch and improv comedy, …” The guiding principles of the theater will be ‘community, representation, transparency, and equality,’ and the website notes that equality will begin with the theater ‘financially compensating its artists'” — a years-long matter of controversy at UCB. – Vulture

When ‘The Last Gasp’ Isn’t The Final Breath For A 40-Year-Old Theatre Company

The 76- and 71-year-old women who founded and run Split Britches were in London when COVID-19 hit New York hard, so they didn’t come back for a while – but where to stay, and how to make the new work they were supposedly putting up at La MaMa in April and the Barbican in June? And where to stay in London? Enter an empty house with running water, electricity and one chair. – The New York Times

What Fairytale Of New York And It’s A Wonderful Life Have In Common

And what they tell us about a culture that celebrates Christmas above all, decontextualizing the artists’ other work. “The Pogues had already put out two of the most original albums of the decade by the time they released ‘Fairytale’ in 1987; I can’t remember the last time I heard anything from either played on the radio. Were Frank Capra around today, he would be able to relate.” – The Guardian (UK)

The Met Museum @150: Peter Schjeldahl

“The Met is our Home Depot of the soul. It has just about whatever you want, and it has a lot of it, very largely the harvest of past donations, en masse, of the collections of major benefactors—a New York tradition that, per a bequest in 1969, entitled the banker Robert Lehman to require the construction of a whole new wing, devoted to his gifts. (That was annoying, but the art was worth it.)” – The New Yorker

Thinking About Indie Bookstores

One bookstore near the High Line in New York: “The last day we were open, I asked customers where they were from. Turned out that they were all British flying back home. The last sale was to an Englishman, who bought Albert Camus’ The Plague. We wished each other luck.” – The New York Times

Cool Stuff: Disney Landscapes and Superhero Cities Are Breathtaking in Art by Cliff Cramp and Mark Chilcott

Artists Cliff Cramp and Mark Chilcott have delivered some stunning pop culture for our consumption in the past. Not too long ago, Cramp crafted a series of The Lord of the Rings pieces that brought J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth to life beautifully, and Chilcott provided several different versions of Batman in Gotham City. Now both artists are back taking in different pop culture iconography in their signature styles. This time, Cliff Cramp has honed in on some astounding landscapes of Disney’s ...

The Plastic Bag Store: A Pop Art Installation with a Whimsical But Deadly Serious Environmental Message When COVID-19 exploded in New York City last March, it erased everything on the calendar, including: All live theater… The city’s freshly implemented ban on single use plastic bags… And  , a pop-up installation that was preparing to open in Times Square. The theaters remain dark, but the ban is back on, as of October 19th. The 7-month pause was hastened by the pandemic, but also by an unsuccessful lawsuit brought by flexible packing manufacture...

virtual walking tours of new york city, hosted by ny times architecture critic michael kimmelman

During the pandemic shutdown, there were so many offers of interesting things to do online -- cooking, crafting, indoor exercise, art classes, author readings, and on and on. I didn't do any of it. I began piano lessons with Pianote, read books, took walks, and generally (although somewhat guiltily) enjoyed myself.One online series looked interesting to me, but I kept forgetting to do it.

How the Iconic Colors of the New York City Subway System Were Invented: See the 1930 Color Chart Created by Architect Squire J. Vickers

There may be no more welcome sight to a New Yorker than their own Pantone-colored circle on an arriving subway train. (Provided it’s also the right train number or letter; is making local stops (or express stops); has not been rerouted due to track work, death or injury, etc.) The psychological effect is not unlike a preschooler spotting her brightly-colored cubby at the end of a long day. Therein lies the comforting lovey—screen time, climate control, maybe a nap in a window seat on the way ho...

Jeremy O. Harris Has Gotten HBO To Pay For Experimental Theater Stagings

“Harris, who is 31, has moved fast through the New York theater world — in a truncated season, Slave Play garnered 12 Tony nominations — and he now has a contract with HBO, the much-anticipated film Zola in the can, and Hollywood at or near his feet. But he hasn’t dumped the old toy for the shiny new one. As part of his HBO deal, Harris has secured a discretionary fund for experimental-theater production, essentially a weird-art slush fund.” – Vulture

It’s Back to the Future for These ’70s Retro Homes

The 1970s are, perhaps unfairly, oft derided when it comes to style. Modern sensibilities say the decade took a deep dive into the Mariana Trench of bad taste where interior décor is concerned. Linoleum floors, avocado tiles, fake wood paneling, lava lamps, shag carpets and statement stone fireplaces populated the disco wonderland of design debacles […]

Poet Diane di Prima, Feminist Beatnik, Dead At 86

“[She] dropped out of college to join the poetry swirl in New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1950s. She arrived in San Francisco in 1968, too late for the North Beach Beats, but she established herself as a singular force, a feminist in a poetry culture that was overwhelmingly male. Her publishing career spanned more than 60 years and 40 books.” – San Francisco Chronicle

NY Museums Reopened. But Are They Sustainable At 25 Percent?

Over a month after most of New York’s most prestigious museums reopened to the public, they are experiencing an existential crisis, fueled by the state-mandated reduced capacity of 25 percent. While the public face of New York City museums welcomes back these visitors with a smile and the promise of a safe experience, administrators behind the scenes anxiously wonder how long they can feasibly stay at that meager occupancy without making significant cuts to staffing or programming. – The New Yo...

The ABC's of Broadway Musicals: A Civilian's Guide

After thinking of myself as a director first, and a writer second, for my entire adult life (and that's quite a while, at this point), the Great Pandemic of 2020 has forced me to strike that and reverse it. For now -- for a while -- I'm a writer first, and a once and future director second.So I've been brainstorming writing projects to take up my time while I can't make theatre.If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know that I've already published my first two pandemic projects, my antholo...

When Andy Warhol & Edie Sedgwick, the First Couple of Pop Art, Made an Odd Appearance on the Merv Griffin Show (1965)

// Andy Warhol adored television and, in a way, considered it his most formative influence. While his paintings, silkscreens, and films, and the Velvet Underground, might be all the legacy he might need, Warhol, more than anything, longed to be a TV personality. He made his first concerted effort in 1979, launching a New York public access interview show. In one of the show’s 42 episodes, Warhol sits in almost total silence while his friend Richard Berl...
