Annica Cuppetelli: Measures of Constriction

Through March 2, 6-9 p.m.

Interested in how fashion is tailored to constrict the female figure and ultimately, to transform it, the artist borrows techniques and materials from garment-making to create forms that evoke fashion but function instead as sculpture and space. Free admission

Rent

Tuesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Continues through Jan. 20

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 525,600 (x 20) minutes since a little-known composer unleashed one of the most influential musicals in the history of American theatre. Celebrating 20 years, Jonathan Larson’s Rent continues to preach love, diversity, and creativity in spite of circumstance. The rock opera has scored a Pulitzer Prize and four Tony Awards, and has received the Hollywood treatment with a film starring Rosario Dawson — and now, a stunning 20th-anniversary production. Described as a “re-imagining of Giacomo Puccini’s opera, La Bohème,” Rent tracks one year in the lives of seven New York City artists and dreamers struggling to live life as their truest selves among the HIV/AIDS crisis. Opening night performance begins at 8 p.m. $39

Proof: The Ryoichi Excavations

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 3

,

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his worldwide excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs. Nagatani presents a narrative of Ryoichi’s archeological work, supported by images of excavation sites, unearthed artifacts, and Ryoichi’s own journal pages. According to the photographs, Ryoichi discovered evidence of an automobile culture buried at sites across several continents: Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, and a necropolis in China. This provocative and playful series compels viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions, such as museums, shape our knowledge of the past and present. Free

Paul Rand: The Designer's Task

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 10

,

Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.
