From Across the Distance: Works From The Barjeel Art Foundation

From Across the Distance: Works From The Barjeel Art Foundation
Description:

From Across the Distance provides a glimpse into thought-provoking artistic practices of the Arab world and features the work of London-based Palestinian artist Larissa Sansour, Iraqi-Finnish artist Adel Abidin, and Jordanian-born artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan. Each of these artists shares a portrait of urban capitals imagined during a past, present, or future moment of political and social instability. Although rooted in distinct local histories and contemporary political landscapes, the three videos speak to broader global concerns of collectivity, censorship, and the possibility of co-existent national identities. From Across the Distance features contemporary video works from the Barjeel Art Foundation, an independent collecting philanthropic institution based in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, established by Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi in 2010 to manage, preserve, and exhibit an extensive collection of modern and contemporary Arab art.

From Across the Distance is guest curated by Dr. Sarah Rogers and courtesy of the Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah

Admission is free and open to the public.

Vox Populi at the BCA Center

Vox Populi at the BCA Center
Description:

How can we capture the mood of a nation, and reflect on the current state of American culture through portraiture? In contemporary art, there is a current trend in evocative “portraiture” that questions, probes, and evokes larger ideas of identity and culture, sometimes even conflict. Whether seen in current events, or with the swell of populism that informs today's American sentiment, people – their beliefs, opinions, and rhetoric – have become polarized, and differences pronounced. Vox Populi (or the people’s voice) aims to capture the character and inner psyche of people through contemporary portraiture, who, despite sharing divergent perspectives and voices, find commonality through our shared image. Vox Populi features recent painting and sculpture by six Vermont-based artists: Catherine Hall, Misoo Filan, Harlan Mack, Nathaniel Moody, Ross Sheehan, and Susan Wilson. ​

Admission is free and open to the public.

The Moon and You • BCA Summer Concert Series

The Moon and You • BCA Summer Concert Series
Description:

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

The Moon and You is a folk/soul band based in Asheville, NC that tours the Eastern US and Western Europe. At its core are married songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Ryan Furstenberg (banjo, guitar) and Melissa Hyman (cello). The band released its debut album A White Light That Sings in June 2016, to critical acclaim. They just celebrated their second full-length release, Endless Maria on March 19 with a live string quartet and rock rhythm section bringing the album to life onstage.

At once excitingly inventive and cozily familiar, the Moon & You continues to craft a compelling, acoustic Americana sound. The duo's ever-evolving output encompasses a wide range of American roots music, and is flavored by contributions from a rotating cast of super-talented friends. Their onstage synergy and warmth invite audiences in, offering a peek into a strange and joyful universe of their own.

Myra Flynn & Paul Boffa • BCA Summer Concert Series
Description:

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

Singer/songwriter Myra Flynn spends her career embracing dichotomy. Half Irish and half African American, her original indie/soul songs blend soulful vocals with a lyrical delivery that doesn't let one get too comfortable. As the New England Deli Magazine puts it, "Her vocal influences have as much in common with Ani Difranco and Shawn Colvin as they do with Rihanna and Jill Scott."

"At its most organic, Half Pigeon recalls hints of 2012 darlings Alabama Shakes, and at her very danciest, Myra Flynn seems almost to channel Janet Jackson in her badass prime. What is truly noteworthy is that Flynn is often capable of delivering on both ends of this scale in a single song — and with a unique voice and style to boot." - Seven Days

The Jazz Thieves • BCA Summer Concert Series

The Jazz Thieves • BCA Summer Concert Series
Description:

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

The Jazz Thieves, through evocative lyrics, soulful improvisation, and wide-ranging originals revitalize jazz by reconnecting it to its roots. They "steal" Duke Ellington's melodicism, Tom Waits's grit, Bill Withers's soulful lyricism, and Thundercat's modern edge, uniting all it with a jazz imagination.

The Jazz Thieves' sound has been forged in the and grit and hustle of New York City's jazz and independent music scenes, absorbing their aesthetic and spirit from venues which feature modern pop, old-school soul, eclectic rock and straight-ahead jazz. They are led by the bassist/composer/lyricist John Gray and feature Matt Robbins on vocals and keyboard, Ayumi Ishito on saxophone, and Tim Ford on drums.

In late 2016, they released their first full-length album, "Brooklyn Elegy." Recorded and mixed at Room 17 Studios in Bushwick by engineers Joe Rogers and the Grammy Award-winner Ted Young, Brooklyn Elegy was met with critical acclaim from AllAboutJazz.com and Jazziz magazine, in addition to radio interviews and international radio airplay.

Outside of playing together, the individual members of the Jazz Thieves have played and collaborated with jazz masters such as James Moody, Vincent Herring, David "Happy" Williams, John McNeil, and John Stetch to name a few.

From Across the Distance provides a glimpse into thought-provoking artistic practices of the Arab world and features the work of London-based Palestinian artist Larissa Sansour, Iraqi-Finnish artist Adel Abidin, and Jordanian-born artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan. Each of these artists shares a portrait of urban capitals imagined during a past, present, or future moment of political and social instability. Although rooted in distinct local histories and contemporary political landscapes, the three videos speak to broader global concerns of collectivity, censorship, and the possibility of co-existent national identities. From Across the Distance features contemporary video works from the Barjeel Art Foundation, an independent collecting philanthropic institution based in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, established by Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi in 2010 to manage, preserve, and exhibit an extensive collection of modern and contemporary Arab art.

From Across the Distance is guest curated by Dr. Sarah Rogers and courtesy of the Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah

Admission is free and open to the public.

Vox Populi at the BCA Center

Vox Populi at the BCA Center
Description:

How can we capture the mood of a nation, and reflect on the current state of American culture through portraiture? In contemporary art, there is a current trend in evocative “portraiture” that questions, probes, and evokes larger ideas of identity and culture, sometimes even conflict. Whether seen in current events, or with the swell of populism that informs today's American sentiment, people – their beliefs, opinions, and rhetoric – have become polarized, and differences pronounced. Vox Populi (or the people’s voice) aims to capture the character and inner psyche of people through contemporary portraiture, who, despite sharing divergent perspectives and voices, find commonality through our shared image. Vox Populi features recent painting and sculpture by six Vermont-based artists: Catherine Hall, Misoo Filan, Harlan Mack, Nathaniel Moody, Ross Sheehan, and Susan Wilson. ​

Admission is free and open to the public.
