Benjamin Clementine

BRIC : 8:00 p.m. April 29

Born in London to Ghanaian parents, Clementine was discovered busking in the Paris Metro. After two EPs and a new album, At Least for Now, Clementine is on track to become a major purveyor of the sort of proudly despairing poetics associated with Nina Simone and Edith Piaf, with a bit of Antony...

Prize Prints: The Queen Sonja Print Award

Scandinavia House : 11:00 a.m. daily until August 1

Celebrating Scandinavian printmaking, the gallery presents work by two recent recipients of the queen of Norway's prize. Svend ­Allan Sørensen's roughly made images of birds and hunting convey a backwoods irreverence, as do his primitive graffiti­-like woodcuts of quips and... More >>

Slavic Soul Party!

Barbes : 10:00 p.m. every Tue.

Slavic Soul Party are Eastern Europe's answer to the funk (and "Grunt") of the J.B.'s or, more recently, the Budos Band. On their recordings, and every Tuesday at Barbès, the ten-person brass ensemble pins Gypsy melodies against the sort of jazzy r&b horn collages you hear in movies... More >>

Kehinde Wiley

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily until May 24

Kehinde Wiley, only 38 years old but with a career spanning 14 years, already has his own retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, and rightly so.

The Great American Pin-Up Returns: The AK Collection

Louis K. Meisel Gallery : 10:00 a.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 2

The pin-up girl originated in the 1930s, accompanied soldiers to war in the 1940s, mirrored the rampant consumerism of the 1950s, and was eventually reduced to a bit of kitschy fun in the 1960s. The pin-up straddles that line between commercial culture and softcore porn, but in The Great... More >>

Bruce LaBruce

MOMA, Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters : 7:00 p.m. daily until May 2

It takes only a passing glance at the premise of a few Bruce LaBruce films to understand why his work is met with controversy all over the world. L.A. Zombie (2010) follows an alien, possibly schizophrenic zombie who brings people back to life through intercourse, while Skin Flick (1999)... More >>

Hip-Hop Revolution

Museum of the City of New York : 10:00 a.m. daily until September 13

Jazz was invented in New Orleans, and London has some claim to punk (or so the Brits insist), but hip-hop is all New York's own. Today the Museum of the City of New York opens Hip-Hop Revolution, a photography exhibit showcasing the early days of a new cultural movement, from its birth on city... More >>

This Tony­-winning spoof of Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 classic has played in New York numerous times before — prior venues include the American Airlines Theatre, the Cort Theatre, and the Helen Hayes — and was such a rousing success that a return run ought to be embraced with open... More >>

Union Square Theater

Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm

The Drawing Center : 12:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Admired for her expressionist paintings of macabre sexual fantasy, Natalie Frank takes her taste for taboo to folktales — not Disney's versions, but the unsettling originals popularized in the nineteenth century by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Frank's pastel drawings, reminiscent of Chagall,... More >>

Soho Art - Galleries

Celeste Sloman and Vangeline Theater

Howl! Happening : 7:00 p.m. daily from April 29 until May 2

Butoh is a deceptively slow-moving dance. While its performers move gradually, it's with great intention. The audience never gets close enough to experience the trance-like state dancers evoke in order to alter reality and tell a story, until tonight. Très Mort–Tremor combines live... More >>

East Village Dance

Lydia Davis

McNally Jackson : 7:00 p.m. April 27

Before flash fiction became fashionable, Lydia Davis was penning her micro-stories, brief but memorable glimpses into the meaning behind the mundane. Her prose isn't showy or maximalist, but it is meticulously crafted, and often brimming with pathos behind a seemingly quotidian surface. She's... More >>

When the Curtain Never Comes Down

American Folk Art Museum : 12:00 p.m. daily until July 5

This fresh collection of outsider art explores ritual, self­promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self­taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd. In homage to a sea goddess, Raimundo Borges Falcão roller­skates in elaborate outfits assembled from trash.... More >>

This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:00 a.m. every 7 days until January 1

Las Vegas was once the go-to spot for legendary musicians looking to settle down for a residency, but it looks like MSG and Billy Joel have found a way to take that concept home to New York. After playing a New Year's Eve show at Barclays, the Bronx-born, Long Island–bred performer, who... More >>

A Curious Blindness

Columbia University, Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery : 1:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until June 13

Divya Mehra's minimalist neon sculpture A Brown Woman Drowned — a dark circle beneath a single wavy line — succinctly addresses that all­too­frequent indifference to a non­white death. Mehra is one of fifteen artists here who have focused, in various media, on race.... More >>

Any chance to see Tony winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) on the boards is not to be missed, but his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder should be a treat eight times over. In this story, gentleman Monty (played by Bryce Pinkham) has... More >>

El Museo Del Barrio : 11:00 a.m. daily until June 27

Fort Greene Theater

Zion80

Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. May 5

A marvelous mashup that consistently transcends its source material, guitarist Jon Madof's 2013 Tzadik Records debut combined Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's ecstatic Jewish music with Fela Kuti's swaggering Afrobeat sound. He followed it up last year with Adramelech: Book of Angels 22, which applies... More >>

Chelsea Nights Concert Series

The Chelsea Market : 7:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily until August 23
