Forever is Composed of Nows
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Joan has a big problem. Recently named CEO of athletic-wear giant Jojomon — think high end brand that's part '60s one-hit wonder and part citrus fruit — she even more recently learned that a BBC investigative team is about to expose her Bangladeshi manufacturer of lavender scented yoga pants as an exploiter of child labor. Suddenly, Jojomon's family of customers is all atwitter with accusations of inauthenticity. Only one solution will do — find a reclusive and revered yogi to serve as a spokesman and restore the company's all-important claim to authenticity. They find him all right. The rest is 90 minutes of side-splitting laughter. A fun-filled new comedy by Dipika Guha, a talent to watch and recipient of a Venturous Playwright Fellowship by The Lark.

Joan has a big problem. Recently named CEO of athletic-wear giant Jojomon — think high end brand that's part '60s one-hit wonder and part citrus fruit — she even more recently learned that a BBC investigative team is about to expose her Bangladeshi manufacturer of lavender scented yoga pants as an exploiter of child labor. Suddenly, Jojomon's family of customers is all atwitter with accusations of inauthenticity. Only one solution will do — find a reclusive and revered yogi to serve as a spokesman and restore the company's all-important claim to authenticity. They find him all right. The rest is 90 minutes of side-splitting laughter. A fun-filled new comedy by Dipika Guha, a talent to watch and recipient of a Venturous Playwright Fellowship by The Lark.

No Emoji for Ennui: Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"No Emoji for Ennui" is a group show featuring the work of Lana Z Caplan, Ross Meckfessel, Alison Nguyen, and Matt Whitman that explores the difficult-to-define emotional tenor of our time — one that often leaves us overstimulated and underwhelmed at the same time it demands endless positivity. The seductive surface of the touchscreen shatters and the polygon meshes underlying our shared social reality peek out from under the digital skin.

What does it feel like to be a person in a world in which our sense of self has been thoroughly disoriented by technological entanglement and co-opted by neoliberal capital?

By turns unsettling, contemplative, humorous, and filled with existential dread, the resulting show is a collective selfie of who and what we are now.

Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis:
Lana Z Caplan works across various media, including single-channel films and videos in essay form, interactive installations, video art, and photography. Her work is inspired by notions of utopia and the relationship of the present to history and memory. Caplan has exhibited and screened at Anthology Film Archives (New York), Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, CA), Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Chicago Underground Film Festival, CROSSROADS Film Festival, IC Docs (Iowa City), Inside Out Art Museum (Beijing), Microscope Gallery (New York), Moving Image Festival (Scotland), Museo Tamayo, Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, and San Francisco Cinematheque's Alchemy Film. Caplan's work is represented by Gallery NAGA (Boston) and her films are distributed by Collectif Jeune Cinéma (Paris) and Filmmaker's Cooperative (New York). (2019, 7:15 minutes)

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Touted as "...the hottest comic in America," by The New York Times, Sebastian Maniscalco has celebrated heights only a few comedians ever achieve. A string of record-breaking, sold-out arena shows includes a comedy record for Chicago's United Center, the highest gross for a single event at Boston's TD garden, and a historic four-show run at Madison Square Garden breaking the record for most shows sold in a weekend for the venue. That blockbuster success coupled with Netflix original comedy specials and a starring role alongside Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated The Irishman, it's no surprise that both Pollstar and Billboard have honored the standup with their top touring awards.

The sheer size of Dawn Williams Boyd's "cloth paintings" adds to their larger-than-life, often brutal subject matter. Her exhibition, Woe, is a collection of works that reflect a lifelong critique of social injustices and racial violence, epic battles with misogyny, and physical and psychological abuses of power. There is no such thing as neutral history. Using scraps of fabric, needles, and thread as her tools, Boyd painstakingly "paints" the entire surface of her quilts, layer upon layer, cutting, sewing, endlessly repurposing, building the surface into a formidable, authoritative source that pulls no punches.

No Emoji for Ennui: Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"No Emoji for Ennui" is a group show featuring the work of Lana Z Caplan, Ross Meckfessel, Alison Nguyen, and Matt Whitman that explores the difficult-to-define emotional tenor of our time — one that often leaves us overstimulated and underwhelmed at the same time it demands endless positivity. The seductive surface of the touchscreen shatters and the polygon meshes underlying our shared social reality peek out from under the digital skin.

What does it feel like to be a person in a world in which our sense of self has been thoroughly disoriented by technological entanglement and co-opted by neoliberal capital?

By turns unsettling, contemplative, humorous, and filled with existential dread, the resulting show is a collective selfie of who and what we are now.

Lana Z Caplan, Autopoiesis:
Lana Z Caplan works across various media, including single-channel films and videos in essay form, interactive installations, video art, and photography. Her work is inspired by notions of utopia and the relationship of the present to history and memory. Caplan has exhibited and screened at Anthology Film Archives (New York), Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, CA), Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Chicago Underground Film Festival, CROSSROADS Film Festival, IC Docs (Iowa City), Inside Out Art Museum (Beijing), Microscope Gallery (New York), Moving Image Festival (Scotland), Museo Tamayo, Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, and San Francisco Cinematheque's Alchemy Film. Caplan's work is represented by Gallery NAGA (Boston) and her films are distributed by Collectif Jeune Cinéma (Paris) and Filmmaker's Cooperative (New York). (2019, 7:15 minutes)

Sebastian Maniscalco: Nobody Does This Tour
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Touted as "...the hottest comic in America," by The New York Times, Sebastian Maniscalco has celebrated heights only a few comedians ever achieve. A string of record-breaking, sold-out arena shows includes a comedy record for Chicago's United Center, the highest gross for a single event at Boston's TD garden, and a historic four-show run at Madison Square Garden breaking the record for most shows sold in a weekend for the venue. That blockbuster success coupled with Netflix original comedy specials and a starring role alongside Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated The Irishman, it's no surprise that both Pollstar and Billboard have honored the standup with their top touring awards.

Yoga Play
Syracuse Stage
Melissa Crespo, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Joan has a big problem. Recently named CEO of athletic-wear giant Jojomon — think high end brand that's part '60s one-hit wonder and part citrus fruit — she even more recently learned that a BBC investigative team is about to expose her Bangladeshi manufacturer of lavender scented yoga pants as an exploiter of child labor. Suddenly, Jojomon's family of customers is all atwitter with accusations of inauthenticity. Only one solution will do — find a reclusive and revered yogi to serve as a spokesman and restore the company's all-important claim to authenticity. They find him all right. The rest is 90 minutes of side-splitting laughter. A fun-filled new comedy by Dipika Guha, a talent to watch and recipient of a Venturous Playwright Fellowship by The Lark.
