Where Art Thou: Yayoi Kusama 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:

  • Wednesday through Saturday, head up to the Lenfest Center for the MFA Acting Thesis: In The Blood, written by Suzan-Lori Parks and directed by Eugene Ma. The MFA acting class of 2020 is proud to present this Scarlet Letter-inspired play about a woman determined at all costs to protect her children. Tickets free with student ID.
  • This Thursday and Friday at 8 PM, and Saturday at 2 and 7 PM, check out NOMADS’ production of Linguistic Features of AAVE (African American Vernacular English). This original student play was written by Kay Kemp and directed by Madison Hatchett.
  • This Friday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 PM, join CU Asian American Alliance in Roone for 2019 CultureSHOCK: Resurge! This charity performance event will feature on-campus dance groups like Raw Elementz and CU Bhangra, as well as music, poetry, and comedy. Tickets $10.

Off Campus:

  • Head to the David Zwirner gallery this Saturday, Nov. 9 for the opening of a new exhibit: Every Day I Pray for Love by celebrated Japanese pop artist, Yayoi Kusama. Featuring paintings, sculptures, an immersive installation, and a new Infinity Mirror Room, the exhibit is free and open to the public.
  • Get $15 student tickets through Arts Initiative for this Saturday night’s VISIONS Contemporary Ballet: Traces (of what makes us who we are). Presented at the Riverside Theatre, the event will feature pieces including Traces by Ranardo-Domeico Grays, a brain cancer survivor, which explores the physicality of suffering and perseverance.
