Ilana Rapp | July 7, 2015 | Arts
Actress Rachel Resheff is, um, amazing. That's the word fits the bill! She already has five Broadway shows under her belt and will now be performing at 54 Below in NYC. For you Orange is the New Black fans, you will recognize Rachel as young Alex Vause!

Edward Goldman | July 7, 2015 | Arts
If someone told me that I would have a reason to bring up the names of Pope Francis and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in the same sentence, I would have highly doubted it. But, here it is.

28 Chinese Cavort Amid the Treasures of the Asian Art Museum

Carla Escoda | July 7, 2015 | Arts
The placement of these artworks is disconcerting and, for the most part, brilliant. Viewing the modern work next to ancient artifacts from China and from neighboring countries with which it has had a volatile history, instantly rewires our brains.

Love at First Flight: The Story of Ammed and Estefani Tuniziani

Johnathan Lee Iverson | July 7, 2015 | Arts
Of all the many trapeze artists I've had the pleasure to present, not a single one ever considered such a career in flight as a plan B or something to hold them over until their real dream kicked in. The trapeze is either for you or it is not.

Wael Shawky On Pulling the Strings of Crusade and Jihad at MoMA PS1

G. Roger Denson | July 7, 2015 | Arts
Shawky's films may be about the numbing terror and depraved inhumanity of the medieval Crusaders and Jihadis, but the human players and objectives are virtually the same today. Through the transparent veneer of temporal, regional, ideological correspondenc

'A Year of Women'? How About 'A Year of Publishing Parity' Instead?

Lorraine Devon Wilke | July 7, 2015 | Books
What does it say that those taking on gender politics believe the way for women to rise is to literally remove men from the equation?

Kathy Leonardo | July 7, 2015 | Arts
Paintings have always been a backdrop in Gregg Chadwick's life. Much like a cinematographer shapes a film with beautiful images, Chadwick creates his own stories via his art with iconic themes and striking figures with subtle subtext.

Lori Leven | July 6, 2015 | Arts
A few weeks ago, a blogger was looking to get her daughter's name tattooed on her neck. After explaining to her that we do not tattoo the necks, hands or faces of people who are not heavily tattooed otherwise, she left very upset, questioning our right to tell her what to do with her body.

Isa Freeling | July 6, 2015 | Arts
