Where Art Thou: Klimt Edition

New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

On Campus:

  • This weekend, join the CU Players for The Hungry Woman: A Mexican Medea. Playing Thurs-Sat at 8 PM in the Glicker-Milstein Theater, Cherríe Moraga’s play reimagines Medea as the former leader of a Chicano revolt at the turn of the millennium. Tickets $5.50.
  • Also Thursday through Saturday at 8, check out CMTS’ Camelot in the Lerner Black Box, a classic Golden Age musical based on the legend of King Arthur. Tickets $7.50.
  • Next Friday, April 19 at 3 PM, head to Pupin 14 for CU BlueShift’s (Columbia’s astronomy club) Arts & Astro: a night celebrating astronomy-inspired visual art, music, and more! Snacks provided.

Off Campus:

  • This Tuesday, the Beekman Theater on 2nd Ave is hosting Great Art on Screen – Klimt & Shiele: Eros & Psyche. Featuring works by Gustab Klimt and his protege Egon Schiele, this exhibition recounts the start of the 1890’s art movement the Vienna Secession, which pushed the boundaries of academic tradition with new psychological and feminist theories. Tickets from $18.
