Trenton Doyle Hancock

Studio Museum Harlem : 12:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Hancock's self-portrait — a demonic figure with giant tube-shaped breasts — is decidedly unflattering, but it captures the essence of an artist immersed in the perversely humorous world of underground comics. This extensive survey features his long-running mythological story about... More >>

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 >>

Heisenberg

At New York City Center Stage II : 7:30 p.m. daily until June 28

This Heisenberg has nothing to do with Walter White, so halt your Breaking Bad fantasies right there. It does, however, star Mary-Louise Parker, who is no stranger to playing a suburban drug-slinger after eight seasons on Weeds. In this new Off-Broadway production, commissioned by the Manhattan...

West 50s Theater

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 >>

World Science Festival

Brooklyn Bridge Park : 12:00 p.m. daily from May 27 until May 31

Long gone are the days when science festivals were considered nerdy. With technology so entwined in our lives, we have a duty to be interested in how it all affects us — and, perhaps more pressingly, in what effects we are having on the world. Oh, and space; it's always cool to learn... 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 >>

Matthew Weiner's Mad Men

Museum of the Moving Image : 10:30 a.m. daily until June 14

The final season of Mad Men debuted on April 5, and we’ll have to say goodbye, after eight years, to all the smoking, drinking, striving, cheating, casual sexism, and slick mid-century style of Don Draper and his pals. But now the Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a tribute to the... More >>

Astoria Television

Chicano Batman

Subrosa : 8:00 p.m. May 27

Recent Jack White tour openers Chicano Batman resemble freaky-deaky prom kings as they play their psychedelic cumbias and Farfisa-driven ballads and prog-pop gems. The East Los Angeles quartet's latest album, Cycles of Existential Rhyme, is warm and deeply funky. Even an eighty-something mom... More >>

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 >>

Björk

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. daily until June 7

It’s about time Björk Guðmundsdóttir got herself a retrospective. As the mononymous singer, songwriter, and composer, she’s been freaking us out consistently for two decades now — in the best possible way. Starting today, the Icelandic artist claims three... More >>

Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Collection

Japan Society : 9:30 a.m. daily until June 7

Depictions of felines, it seems, have been popular throughout the ages. Before there was “Best Cat Vines of 2014,” Japanese artists created woodblock prints of their furry friends. Starting today, the Japan Society Gallery features Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e... More >>

Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks

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

Jean-Michel Basquiat accomplished much in his brief life. He began by leaving a mark on Lower Manhattan — literally — with his graffiti, before eventually staging exhibits in prestigious galleries throughout the world and befriending the likes of Andy Warhol. Throughout the... 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, self-promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self-taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd. In homage to a sea goddess, Raimundo Borges Falcão roller-skates in elaborate outfits assembled from trash. Spiritually guided,... More >>

Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life

New York Botanical Garden : 10:00 a.m. daily until November 1

Frida Kahlo was famously inspired by the garden at "Casa Azul" in Mexico City, the house where she was born, lived, and died. The artist's ties to nature, and that particular cobalt-walled patch of it, are evident in much of her work. For this reason, the New York Botanical Garden is an ideal... 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 all-too-frequent indifference to a non-white death. Mehra is one of fifteen artists here who have focused, in various media, on race. Several pieces... 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

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 >>

Forward Ferguson

JACK : 7:00 p.m. every Sun. until June 30

Theater has brought citizens together to heal their ailing polis since the time of ancient Athens.
