Fatal Attraction: Piotr Uklański Photographs
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  The Metropolitan Museum of Art,  •  17 March - 16 August 2015
Fatal Attraction: Piotr Uklański Photographs is the first survey of the Polish-born, New York-based artist’s photography. Known for working in a wide variety of media including installation, fiber art, resin paintings, and collage, Uklański (born 1968) invests overlooked and exhausted styles with new meanings—and similarly explores clichéd or obsolete photographic languages. Nearly half of the works on display in the Metropolitan Museum’s exhibition are from The Joy of Photography (1997-2007), the artist’s little-known series.

Warriors and Mothers: Epic Mbembe Art
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  9 December 2014 - 7 September 2015
The figures created by Mbembe master carvers from southeastern Nigeria are among the earliest and most visually dramatic wood sculptures preserved from sub-Saharan Africa. Created between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, and striking for their synthesis of intense rawness and poetry, these representations of seated figures—mothers nurturing their offspring and aggressive male warriors—were originally an integral part of monumental carved drums positioned at the epicenter of spiritual life, the heartbeat of Mbembe communities.

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES  •  Joyce Theater  •  23 June - 3 July 2015
Captivating audiences with his mastery of capoeira, Jelon Vieira, Artistic Director of DanceBrazil, bases his aesthetic on this art form and works with capoeiristas who have learned their technique in the urban setting of Bahia, Brazil.

The spirited Joyce program includes Malungos, a new piece named for a slang word used among enslaved Africans traveling on ships to Brazil that indicated their commitment to each other. A similar sense of friendship and unity that exists within capoeira communities is a model, Vieira believes, for addressing social concerns in Brazil today.

William Shakespeare: The Tempest

SummerStage and the Classical Theatre of Harlem proudly present William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, directed by Carl Cofield. This rendition of the famed play sets Prospero’s magical island on the enchanting island of Hispaniola, home to the Dominican Republic and Haiti – two tiny nations with storied battles for independence. With the characters of Ariel and Caliban representing the same longing for freedom and fighting spirit of Haiti, the play highlights the dynamics of freedom and captivity, imprisonment and rebellion, and authority and tyranny.
