    New York [map]
    Price: $24.00
    February 26, 2017 03:00pm - 05:30pm

    Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter's No Man's Land, recorded live for cinemas from Wyndham's Theatre, London. One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men. Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don't miss this glorious revival of Pinter's comic classic. The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and Director Sean Mathias. Running time: approximately 150 minutes including a post-performance Q&A. Ticket prices: $24, $22; seniors $20, members $16.

  • Mendelssohn's Sorrow

    Alice Tully Hall
    1941 Broadway, corner of West 65th Street
    New York [map]
    Price: $38.00
    February 26, 2017 05:00pm - 06:45pm

    The height of our joys may be measured by the depth of our sorrows, and this final Winter Festival program visits extremes of the human experience. The darkness of Bach’s fugue is brightened in one by Mendelssohn; Schumann’s emotional piano trio is contrasted by the serenity of his Arabesque. But life’s thick clouds have often brought forth music of agonizing beauty: In his moving final string quartet, Mendelssohn openly grieves over the passing of his beloved sister.

  • Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years

    Museum of Art and Design
    2 Columbus Circle
    New York [map]
    Price: $16.00
    Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturday and Sundays 10:00pm - 06:00pm
    October 18, 2016 - March 15, 2017

    Spanning the years 1953–1968, Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is the first exhibition to focus on the early career of Peter Voulkos, whose radical methods and ideas during this period opened up the possibilities for clay in ways that are still being felt today. While trained as a traditional potter, Voulkos defied mid-century craft dictums of proper technique and form to completely reinvent his medium. He combined wheel throwing with slab building, traditional glazes with epoxy paint, figuration with abstraction, and made huge ceramic structures with complex internal engineering. The exhibition will feature approximately 31 examples from this crucial body of early work, most of which have not been exhibited on the East Coast for four decades. Also included will be three of the artist's rarely seen works in oil on canvas, which help to demonstrate how Voulkos developed his ideas concurrently in painting, sculpture, and pottery. Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is part of MAD Transformations, a series of six exhibitions that address artists who have transformed and continue to transform our perceptions of traditional craft mediums. MAD’s six fall exhibitions consider fiber, clay, and jewelry & metals, disciplines that were the bedrock of the museum’s founding mission and collection, and that continue to morph in the hands of contemporary artists today.
