Ia Love g1 Host: Lostatsea - Gibney
Through November 09, 2019 - New York

g1(host): lostatsea grapples with what it means to live within conditions shaped by the "afterlife" of slavery. As a serial, multi-media performance and mobile site of study, I pursue questions regarding my body's status as it pivots on this fundamental query: what remains of the Middle Passage as force, gesture, and affect? Exploring themes of loss, alchemy, geological debris, and generational accretions, I trace a dense, energetic nothingness. Here, "wake work," as scholar Christina Sharpe asserts, operates as a mode of suspension, a sensory field of historical being, an oceanic black thing that we're all drenched by and in.

An Evening with Styx - The Stanley Theatre
November 10, 2019 - Utica

The six men comprising Styx have committed to "Rockin' the Paradise" together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. Styx draws from over four decades of barn burning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor of songs such as "The Grand Illusion," "Blue Collar Man," "Lady," "Miss America," "Man in the Wilderness," "Crystal Ball," "Come Sail Away," and "Renegade," the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one's mind and body in their signature sound.After more than a decade together on the road, this incarnation of Styx is looking forward to performing as many shows as it can as long as it can. "It all comes back to the chemistry," says bassist/vocalist Ricky Phillips. "The legacy of this band will be that it brought joy to millions of people," notes drummer Todd Sucherman.

20/20 Insight: Posters from the 2017 Women's March - Poster House
Through January 05, 2020 - New York,

The Women's March held on January 21, 2017, in cities across the United States brought together people of all types for a demonstration in response to the election of President Donald J. Trump.Taking to the streets, protesters made posters addressing issues of immigration, environmentalism, and civil rights that tapped into an apprehension about the future of democracy in the United States and, in particular, the treatment of women. The 2017 Women's March was a highwater mark of participation in recent memory, but it follows a tradition of protests and persistent action in the quest for equal rights. Equally enduring are the graphics and poster images that have carried through generations of marches, rallies, and grassroots action. Today's demonstrators arm themselves with symbols from poster history, borrowing the power of their ideology while crafting new meaning. 20/20 Insight looks at the 2017 Women's March within this larger context to understand what has come before and to encourage participation in the future of this democracy.
