Symphony Space

Every four years, journalists try to make sense of the nation’s biggest story: the race for the presidency. With one of the country’s most consequential elections on the horizon, Selected Shorts considers the twists and turns of campaigns past—the in-fighting and back-biting, the leads blown and punches thrown—to help make sense of the present. Collecting excerpts and stories from writers such as Hunter S. Thompson, Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper hosts an evening of readings about a world he knows from the inside out. With performances by Samantha Bee (Full Frontal), Crystal Dickinson (The Chi), Aasif Mandvi (Evil), Alexandra Petri (columnist, The Washington Post), and Roy Wood, Jr. (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah). This is a virtual event. Ticket holders will receive e-tickets with information on how to access the event. You can tune in at the premiere or view at your leisure for two weeks afterwards. This event will premiere on October 21 and is available until November 3.

Hope Wanted takes place outdoors in New-York Historical’s rear courtyard (entrance by 5 West 76th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue), providing an open-air environment for visitors to view the exhibition and contemplate the impact of COVID-19 on New York City. Admission is free; access is limited and face coverings are required for entry, with social distancing enforced through timed-entry tickets and on-site safety measures. Curated by poet and journalist Kevin Powell and photographer Kay Hickman, Hope Wanted: New York City Under Quarantine features more than 50 photographs taken by Hickman along with 14 audio interviews with the photographs’ subjects conducted by Powell during the team’s intensive two-day odyssey across the city on April 8–9, 2020; the audio will be accessible to visitors through their cell phones. Hickman’s empathetic photographs of people and their neighborhoods in all five boroughs and Powell’s searching interviews of New Yorkers impacted by the crisis capture both tragedy and remarkable resilience at a moment in time during the pandemic. The exhibition text and audio will be offered in both English and Spanish. The exhibition also includes a quiet seating area, surrounded by plantings and conducive to reflection, where visitors can record their own experiences of the pandemic in an open-sided story booth. These oral histories will be archived by New-York Historical. Check out recent coverage of the exhibition in the New York Times and on NY1.

TKA is a representation of the initials of Tony Ortiz, Louis “Kayel” Sharpe and Angel “Love” Vasquez, three New York City born and bred freestyle pioneers of Puerto Rican descent. They were originally discovered while singing at a sweet sixteen party, and signed to the Tommy Boy Records label. Their first single together, “One Way Love,” was a huge hit in NYC’s Latin club circuit, as well as in Chicago and Miami. The style kept flowing freely with their next hit single “Come Get My Love.” Both of these tracks were featured on their debut record, 1987’s Scars of Love, along with “Tears May Fall,” “X-Ray Vision,” “Don’t Be Afraid” and the title track. Spreading their reach to an even broader audience, their single “You Are the One” was part soundtrack of the 1989 film Lean On Me, and reached #91 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 1990, TKA moved in a different stylistic direction, with their album Louder Than Love, which featured a smoothly produced R&B jam “I Won’t Give Up on You.” Next they verged into a hip hop house hybrid sound, with singles “Crash (Have Some Fun)” and “Give Your Love to Me.” As the freestyle movement began to dissipate, TKA released a Greatest Hits collection album in 1992, before they each pursued solo projects. Yet the old friends joined forces once again in 2001, with the release Forever. After that, original member of the group “Aby” Cruz replaced Kayel, and the band has been touring again, promoting their latest album, 2016’s Love Goes On.
