Stuart Parr Collection is proud to present rare motorcycles and street bikes from its collection designed by engineering powerhouses such as Ducati, MV Agusta, Laverda and Magni.
The twenty-six motorcycles in the exhibit are presented to the public for the first time, and according to Stuart Parr “these bikes represent an era when the greatest design and engineering talent took Italian motorcycles from the race track to the road”.
During the 1970s, racing embedded the fabric of Italian culture, and the finest motorcycles of this era evolved from this racing heritage. The Stuart Parr Collection centers on some of the most significant classic Italian motorcycles of this era, in particular the MV Agusta four-cylinder. Few production motorcycles enjoy the legacy of the MV Agusta four, which has an engine virtually identical to those racing bikes who won 13 World Manufacturers’ Championships and took victories in 91 Grands Prix. The MV Agusta four’s legacy is unparalleled.
The bikes on display are hand-built and forged by artisans, representing a bygone era of motorcycle design and limited production runs. The beauty in these motorcycles is in the myriad of details, wonderful aluminum castings and bespoke design. No two bikes are alike.
Founded in 1947 by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour, Magnum’s photographers have served as eyewitnesses to history: from the Spanish Civil War to the liberation of the concentration camps; from the growth of democracy in India to the civil rights movement in the United States; from the genocide in Rwanda to every major armed conflict of modern times. Magnum’s ranks - of more than seventy photographers - include contemporary masters such as Rene Burri, Josef Koudelka, Elliott Erwitt, Gilles Peress, Martin Parr, Bruce Davidson and Susan Meiselas, as well as a generation of rising young stars. Despite their diverse styles, attitudes, and areas of interest, Magnum’s photographers remain united by the organization’s core values: integrity, independence, and an unwavering dedication to honest and humanistic photography.
Today, Japan Society has evolved into a world-class, multidisciplinary hub for global leaders, artists, scholars, educators, and English and Japanese-speaking audiences. At the Society, more than 100 events each year feature sophisticated, topically relevant presentations of Japanese art and culture and open, critical dialogue on issues of vital importance to the U.S., Japan and East Asia.
Activities at Japan Society are set against a stunning backdrop of indoor gardens, a reflecting pool and a waterfall. Facilities include a 262-seat theater, art gallery, language center, library and conference rooms. Japan Society's landmark building—located near the United Nations on 47th Street and First Avenue—was designed by architect Junzo Yoshimura and opened in 1971 as the first building in New York City by a leading Japanese architect. The classic elegance and simplicity of Yoshimura's original vision has been preserved even as the building has been enhanced by a substantial renovation.
Japan Society was founded on May 19, 1907 by a group of prominent New York business people and philanthropists, many of whom shaped the policies of exchange and collaboration that guided the Society until the outbreak of World War II. After the war, activities slowly resumed, and the stewardship of John D. Rockefeller 3rd from 1952 to 1978 led to a unified vision, a firm financial foundation, and a revitalized mission that continues to inspire and sustain the organization today.
Established in 1911 by Danish-American industrialist Niels Poulson and a group of other forward-thinking leaders from business and education, the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) was the first international non-governmental society to have as its sole purpose the development of goodwill through educational and cultural exchange. It was designed to meet the needs of its time through fellowships, scholarly exchange, exhibitions, and publications. These programs have grown over the years, and along with the cultural programs at Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America, have provided a comprehensive platform for ongoing international exchange between the United States and the Nordic countries.
This international work is at the heart of the Foundation’s mission. Each year, ASF awards over $800,000 in fellowships and grants to individual students, scholars, professionals, and artists for study and research in the United States and abroad. To date, some 30,000 Americans and Scandinavians have participated in these and other ASF programs of study, research, or practical training.
In October 2000, ASF opened Scandinavia House as a showplace for Nordic culture and life. Since its founding, it has welcomed over 1.5 million visitors, who have come to enjoy exhibitions, performances, lectures, and more. Scandinavia House was financed by the generosity of more than 300 donors from the U.S. and abroad, including individuals, corporations, and foundations, as well as the Nordic governments and the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America, the leading center for Nordic culture in the United States, offers a wide range of programs that illuminate the culture and vitality of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Scandinavia House offerings include diverse exhibitions and film series, as well as concerts and other performances, readings, lectures, symposia, language courses, and children’s activities.
Designed by the internationally renowned Polshek Partnership Architects (now Ennead Architects) and inaugurated in October 2000, Scandinavia House is the headquarters of the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) and the site of ASF’s cultural and educational programming.
Founded in 1995 by Dale Fitzgerald and Roy Hargrove, The Jazz Gallery's stellar programming has enabled a reputation as "The most imaginatively booked jazz club in New York." (NY Times) and "The best place to hear live music in New York." (TimeOut NY). As a nonprofit, it has the ability to allow musicians to take creative risks that other jazz venues would be likely to avoid - therefore, The Gallery is a hub of creativity, a home to jazz musicians/composers, many of them from all over the world but now permanently settled in the United States.
The Jazz Gallery serves an ethnically diverse, international audience that represents a cross section of New York City residents and travelers to New York. The Gallery has many loyal audience members from the region, as well as those who come from all over the world and allocate time during their travel to specifically come to hear performances. Audiences represent all ages -children are comfortable attending since no alcohol is served, and many young college students from NYU and the New School frequent the venue regularly alongside adults of every age. One of the best bargains in NYC, the average ticket price is $10-$20 (occasionally, some special events are $35 or $40). The Gallery is open 3 to 5 nights per week, 50 weeks per year and produces an average of 175 events per year. In 2009 its audience was in excess of 11,000.
The Jazz Gallery produces most of its programming in it’s own venue, a loft space with walls that also serve as a gallery for artwork relating to jazz. It seats 70 people. The rented space is on the fifth floor of 1160 Broadway,accessible by elevator. The Jazz Gallery recalls Soho loft spaces of the 1960's and 70s, and conveys an intimacy and warmth that many newcomers comment on.
Thematic series include the Thursday Night Debut Series, a Commissioning Series supported by the Jerome Foundation, large ensemble presentations, and Composer Workshops with Steve Coleman. Funding in 2009 and 2010 included grants from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Jerome Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, the New York Community Trust, Meet the Composer, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, New York State Council on the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and The National Endowment for the Arts, among others. In June 2010, The Jazz Gallery presented six concerts at its venue as part of the New York City CareFusion Jazz Festival. Two of the six concerts were webcast by NPR and WBGO. In addition, as part of the CareFusion Jazz Festival, The Jazz Gallery All -Stars appeared at Symphony Space's Peter Norton Theater, launching an initiative to create opportunities for jazz musicians at other larger performance venues.
Over the past fifteen years The Jazz Gallery presented nine of the last eleven winners of the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition PRIOR to their winning this competition. This year, in 2010, Jason Moran, a formidable pianist who has frequented the stage of The Gallery for more than 10 years, won a MacArthur Award; in 2008, Miguel Zenon, another musician whose emergence began at The Jazz Gallery, was a MacArthur Recipient. (Miguel is in residence at The Gallery this year.) Every jazz musician appearing at The Jazz Gallery, emerging and established, knows that this is a venue where they can experiment, try out new material, and grow and develop as artists. The Jazz Gallery's 2009/2010 season included, among many others, emerging artists such as Andy Milne, Pedro Giraudo, Ambrose Akinmusire, Dafnis Prieto, Darcy James Argue, John Escreet, Yosvany Terry, Ben Williams and Linda Oh, as well as established artists such as Ravi Coltrane, Roy Hargrove, Steve Coleman, Henry Threadgill, Oliver Lake and Fred Hersch.

The gallery's primary focus is on emerging artists, having presented the first New York solo shows by Tim Berresheim, Ross Chisholm, Slawomir Elsner, Ry Rocklen, Stephanie Taylor, and Jacques Louis Vidal. The inaugural exhibition in 2007 featured a new body of work by quintessential Los Angeles artist Larry Johnson, which was the artist's first exhibition in six years and led to a retrospective at The Hammer Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2009.
In addition to the gallery program, Marc Jancou initiated an ongoing series of exhibitions that take place in various international locations. In 2008, the exhibition In Geneva No One Can Hear Your Scream opened at BFAS Blondeau Fine Art Services, Geneva.

Pop International specializes in Pop Art, Urban Art and art and photography that is derived from, or influenced by, popular culture.

In the Wake: Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11
March 11 - June 12, 2016
To mark the fifth anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake in Tohoku, Japan, Japan Society will present, In the Wake: Japanese Photographers respond to 3/11, a special exhibition that focuses on the enormous response in the arts to the disaster and to the paths that lie ahead as Japan continues to rebuild. Originally organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 2015, the exhibition features the works of fifteen leading photographers, some of whom are considered among Japan’s most celebrated artists (including Nobuyoshi Araki, Naoya Hatakeyama, and Takashi Homma.) Some were drawn to the affected area because they lived in the region or had once called it home. Others took the risk of entering the contamination zone around the Fukushima plant. And some remained at a distance, making evocative images from their studios in Tokyo.
$12; students & seniors $10, Japan Society members & children under 16 free. Admission is free to all on Friday nights, 6–9 PM.
Tuesday–Thursday, 11 AM–6 PM; Friday, 11 AM–9 PM; Saturday and Sunday, 11 AM–5 PM. Closed Mondays and major holidays.
Starting Friday, March 11, through Sunday, June 12, 2016, docent-led walk-in tours will be conducted Tuesday–Sunday at 2:30 PM and Fridays at 2:30 and 7 PM. Japanese language tours will be conducted Friday nights at 6 PM. Tours are free with admission and are approximately one hour in duration.
Japan Society Gallery will be closed Memorial Day.

Set in New York in 1982, THIS IS OUR YOUTH follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren (played by Michael Cera), a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. Funny, painful and compassionate, THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a living snapshot of the moment when many young people go out into the world on their own—far more sophisticated than their parents realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.

This is Tyrone, the scene-stealing sprite who springs hilariously to life in this brilliant, Tony-nominated thrill ride of a comedy.
