The Flick

Barrow Street Theatre : 7:30 p.m. daily until August 30

Annie Baker's Pulitzer Prize winner, The Flick, is the best kind of wall-breaking meta-drama: the kind with heart. On its set are rows of foldout seats, an onstage theater facing out to mirror the room's own. But the show makes you feel something for its trio of downtrodden characters —... 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 >>

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 >>

Shakespeare in the Park

Delacorte Theater : 8:00 p.m. daily until July 5; 8:00 p.m. daily from July 23 until August 23

If you're not looking forward to this summer tradition, it must be because you've never been before. The legacy of the Public Theater's free Shakespeare in the Park is well-deserved: Broadway-grade productions, star casts, and a byo food and drink policy all enjoyed under the stars in one of...

East 80s Theater

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 >>

Brooklyn Pizza Eating Contest

Rocco's Pizzeria : 3:00 p.m. May 31

We at the Voice love tasting events — it's why we host so many of our own. But while artisan bites are a great way to sample the delectable creations crafted in this city, sometimes you just want to shovel in a whole lot of one specific thing with reckless abandon. More often than not,... More >>

Brian Brooks Moving Company/Pontus Lidberg Dance

Joyce Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily from June 2 until June 7

Two award-winning choreographers, an American grounded in abstract modern gesture and a Swede from a ballet background who makes compelling dance film and live performance, split a week.

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 >>

Queens Museum Studio Program Exhibition

Queens Museum of Art : 5:00 p.m. daily until June 28

The Queens Museum is perhaps best known for its massive panorama of the city, but there's a lot more going on, especially since its dramatic renovation in 2013. The institution celebrates its diverse home borough with cutting-edge and international art, and its studio program, which hosts... More >>

Notes of a Native Song

Harlem Stage Gatehouse : 7:30 p.m. June 3

We recently ran into our mono-monikered friend Stew, who's been rehearsing "Notes of a Native Song," a new assemblage of songs, texts, and video inspired by writer James Baldwin. As with his Tony Award–winning musical Passing Strange, "Notes" is a collaboration with Heidi Rodewald, a... More >>

Harlem Music

FIDLAR

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. May 27

The first headliner for this show is rendered in all-caps because their name is an acronym: Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk. They’re skate punks from LA; what else can anyone expect? But the knowingly irreverent moniker belies FIDLAR’s serious, almost scholarly devotion to... More >>

Brooklyn Music

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 >>

World Science Festival

Brooklyn Bridge Park : 12:00 p.m. daily 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 >>

BookCon

Jacob Javits Center : 10:00 a.m. daily from May 30 until May 31

Publishing and pop culture will collide this weekend as BookCon makes its way to the Javits Center.

A Desire for Dramaticism: Semiotics of the 1980s Goth Subculture

Morbid Anatomy Museum : 8:00 p.m. May 28

Like Robert Smith's hair, the history of the goth aesthetic is wild, tangled, and probably dyed black. So how did we children of the night go from quiet, monochromatic, and — admit it — kind of chic vamps (here's looking at you, Sioux) to the bestudded Hot Topic mallrats parodied on... More >>

Brooklyn Talks

Obscura Day

Roosevelt Island : 9:00 a.m. May 30

Atlas Obscura, David Plotz's National Geographic–like compendium of curios, just raised itself a cool $2 million in funding. The result? More feature-length articles, a 2016 book on the horizon, and more cool excursions. Way more, actually. Today's first annual Obscura Day comprises 150... More >>

Black & White 'Scope: International Cinema

BAM Rose Cinemas : 2:00 p.m. daily from May 29 until June 16

Back in February, BAMcinématek debuted its "Black & White 'Scope" series with a focus on the magnificent widescreen cinematography of such American works as Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960) and Samuel Fuller's China Gate (1957). This month, the program turns its attention to the... More >>

Matthew Weiner's Mad Men

Museum of the Moving Image : 10:30 a.m. daily until September 6

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 >>

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 >>

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

“This is for everyone” is a tweet by computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee — the inventor of the internet — that was used to light up an Olympic stadium in 2012. In This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good, MoMA borrows the tweet for its latest exhibit,... 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 >>

Chelsea Nights Concert Series

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

Ever since it got cozy with the High Line in 2009, Chelsea Market has solidified its status as the classiest shopping mall that ever there was — where else can you pry into top-notch lobster while enjoying the sprawling vistas of an Anthropologie store? It also houses the Food Network... More >>

Rough Trade NYC : 7:00 p.m. May 28

NYC comedy veteran and perennial nervous guy Chris Gethard plays Ilana's boss on Broad City and recently appeared as a juror in Amy Schumer's "12 Angry Men" episode. His fans know him for something else, though: the long-running Chris Gethard Show, a bizarre, unpredictable, and deeply heartfelt... More >>

La MaMa : 6:00 p.m. daily until June 21

Nicky Paraiso, arts entrepreneur extraordinaire, reins in his diverse enthusiasms only a little for this year's La MaMa Moves! dance festival, celebrating the tenth anniversary of his East Village bash.

China Through the Looking Glass

The Metropolitan Museum of Art : 10:00 a.m. daily until August 16

Starting today, the Met's Costume Institute and Asian Art Department launch China Through the Looking Glass, a collaboration that explores China's influence on Western design and fashion.
