3. “Rules Of The Game” Performances

BAM presents “Rules Of The Game” on Thursday, November 10, Friday, November 11, and Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Performances will be held at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House.

Choreographer Jonah Bokaer’s elegant movement aesthetic animates visual artist Daniel Arsham’s offbeat architectural environments in this evening of three works, celebrating a decade of collaboration. An original score by Pharrell Williams for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra sets the tone in “Rules Of The Game” (2016), a new work for eight dancers inspired by the absurdist antics of Luigi Pirandello’s play. In “Why Patterns” (2011), set to Morton Feldman’s eponymous 1978 score, four dancers play unpredictable games with 10,000 ping-pong balls. And in “RECESS” (2010), Bokaer restages his signature solo specifically for the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House stage, featuring lighting by designer Aaron Copp. 

Tickets start at $25. Run time is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with intermission. BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building is located at 30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217. www.bam.org.

5. Spencer Finch Talk

Public Art Fund and The New School present “Public Art Fund Talks at The New School: Spencer Finch” on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The talk will be held at The New School 12th Street Auditorium.

At the core of Spencer Finch's practice is an ongoing investigation into the nature of light, color, memory, and perception. By utilizing a range of media from painting, drawing, photography, and installation, Finch transforms his own observations of a particular time or place into form. His talk accompanies Public Art Fund’s new exhibition “Lost Man Creek,” which embodies Finch’s poetic sensibility and investigation into nature’s power to awe and inspire. The installation, a 1:100 scale living recreation of a 790-acre section of the Redwood National Park in California, will be installed at MetroTech Commons for two years. Finch’s talk at The New School will focus on the artist’s various public and large-scale installations. 

Tickets are $10 for general admission and free for students. The New School 12th Street Auditorium is located at 66 W 12th St, New York, NY 10011. www.publicartfund.org. www.newschool.edu.
