Yes, this is a last minute update—apologies—but you have to see it before it ends. This is a live installation, entitled PLASTIC, commissioned by Artist and Choreographer Maria Hassabi. In this installation dancers perform throughout MoMA, on its floors and staircases.

Initially, I thought; umm woahh what’s going on here! However, at that time I was already captivated by the subtlety of their movement, and the immense physical control being executed. As said on MoMA’s website, “… their positions recall images of bodies in repose, collapse, or transition…PLASTIC addresses the interface between artistic object and human subject.”

I enjoyed this piece and think that you will as well.

Amateur Night at the Apollo

The Apollo Theatre

253 W 125th St, New York, NY 10027

March 30, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

$5 tix through High5 

Amateur night at the Apollo is a very fun and interactive live performance event. Probably one of the only events that permits booing haha! Aspiring artists (musicians, poets, dancers, comedians, singers, rappers) take the stage, and try their utmost best to woo the audience. The audience has the power to tell the audience to “be good or be gone.”

In addition, Amateur night always begins with a pre-party where everyone is invited to get up and dance. It is a space booming with Black culture and amazing energy.

Go have fun!

Sooo, The esteemed Metropolitan Museum of Art now has a branch dedicated to “Modern and Contemporary art through the lens of History.” This is located in the landmark building designed by Marcel Breuer, which was the former home of the Whitney Museum—a recycling of art spaces, green and creative J. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS and, I’m sure that Met will not disappoint.


See you there!
