ARTECHOUSE, NYC

@artechouse

@artechouse

SUNDAY - THURSDAY // 10AM - 10PM
FRIDAY & SATURDAY // 10AM - 11PM

Deets: ARTECHOUSE is pleased to announce September 6 as the opening date of its new state-of-the-art digital art space in Chelsea Market, making it New York City’s first permanent venue constructed solely for new media art.

Taking over the never previously occupied boiler room space beneath Chelsea Market’s main concourse, ARTECHOUSE’s New York location will offer visitors and artists alike the most technologically advanced art platform in the world. Utilizing the Barco-powered, 16K resolution, 150 megapixel, laser projection technology, ARTECHOUSE will be the first cultural institution to integrate the largest seamless megapixel count, bringing every pixel alive in the widest color spectrum. The digital art space will also be the first of its kind to utilize L’ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology with 32 separate channels, enabling artists to create and deliver new multidimensional sound experiences for live and recorded productions.

Machine Hallucination, Anadol’s first large-scale installation in New York City is a mixed reality experiment deploying machine learning algorithms on a dataset of over 300 million images—representing a wide-ranging selection of architectural styles and movements—to reveal the hidden connections between these moments in architectural history. As the machine generates a data universe of architectural hallucinations in 1025 dimensions, we can begin to intuitively understand the ways that memory can be spatially experienced and the power of machine intelligence to both simultaneously access and augment our human senses. By embedding photography with machine intelligence a new latent cinematic experience is born, one that narrates the fluid consciousness of a city and displays cultural information in a way that allows us to realize the complex fabric that unfolds our present realities.

For its debut at ARTECHOUSE in Chelsea Market, the installation will focus on architectural images of New York City, revealing the hidden connections between unique moments in the city's iconic architectural culture and history. The installation will harness machine learning to render New York's most renowned buildings in stunning new ways, illuminating the city's architectural past, present and future.  

Hint for the Average Socialite: Tickets for the inaugural installation, Machine Hallucination, featuring groundbreaking works by Los Angeles-based digital artist Refik Anadol, are now available for purchase at www.artechouse.com. The installation is Anadol’s first large-scale installation in New York.

A CONVERSATION WITH ALI WONG, NYC

A CONVERSATION WITH ALI WONG, NYC

@aliwong

@aliwong

Deets: Celebrating the release of Ali’s debut book DEAR GIRLS. All tickets include a free copy of the book.

ABOUT DEAR GIRLS
Ali Wong’s heartfelt and hilarious letters to her daughters (the two she put to work while they were still in utero), covering everything they need to know in life, like the unpleasant details of dating, how to be a working mom in a male-dominated profession, and how she trapped their dad.

In her hit Netflix comedy special Baby Cobra, an eight-month pregnant Ali Wong resonated so heavily that she became a popular Halloween costume. Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage, sex, Asian culture, working women, and why you never see new mom comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dads.

The sharp insights and humor are even more personal in this completely original collection. She shares the wisdom she’s learned from a life in comedy and reveals stories from her life off stage, including the brutal singles life in New York (i.e. the inevitable confrontation with erectile dysfunction), reconnecting with her roots (and drinking snake blood) in Vietnam, tales of being a wild child growing up in San Francisco, and parenting war stories. Though addressed to her daughters, Ali Wong’s letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving, and enlightening (and disgusting) for all.

Who You May Spot: Ali Wong

Hint for the Average Socialite: Tickets go on sale Friday, September 13 @ 10AM! All tickets include a free copy of the book.

@92Y

Deets: Join the team they call “the longest marriage in Hollywood”—Oscar-winning producer and New York Times bestselling author Brian Grazer and his longtime business partner, the Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard, for a fascinating and revealing conversation on the topic of Grazer’s new book, Face to Face: The Art of Human Connection.

As technology takes on a bigger and bigger role in our lives, no machine will ever be able to replace the unique and powerful benefits of speaking face to face and forging in-person relationships. With his flair for intriguing stories, Grazer reveals what he’s learned through interactions with people like Bill Gates, Taraji P. Henson, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Eminem, Prince, Spike Lee and the Afghani rapper activist Sonita: that the secret to a bigger life lies in personal connection. In a world where our attention is too often focused downward at our devices, Grazer argues that we are missing an essential piece of the human experience. Only when we see face to face, able to look one another in the eyes, can we form the kinds of connections that expand our world views, deepen our self-awareness, and ultimately lead to our greatest achievements and most meaningful moments.

If you really want to expand your world, spike your creativity, win a negotiation and create exciting opportunity and adventure, the answer is personal connection. Join two Hollywood icons, and learn how.

@MTV

@MTV

Deets:  MTV will bring the 2019 “VMAs” to the Garden State for the first time ever, live on Monday, August 26th at 9:00PM ET/PT from Prudential Center. Music’s biggest stars and fans will celebrate the year’s most iconic videos with electrifying performances, viral moments and a new, first-of-its-kind immersive fan experience.

The news comes as part of Twitter’s 2019 NewFronts presentation, where both brands unveiled the MTV VMA Stan Cam, which lets fans take control of their VMA viewing experience in ways they never could before. Using a series of short-form streams on Twitter, MTV will ask fans to decide which stars they’d like to watch, follow backstage, go behind-the-scenes and poll on a live reaction cam during the show’s biggest moments. Last year’s VMAs were the No. 1 most social cable awards show of 2018.

“New Jersey has an incredible music heritage and is home to some of the world’s biggest artists including ‘Chairman of the Board’ Frank Sinatra, ‘The Boss’ Bruce Springsteen, Queen Latifah, Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston, the Jonas Brothers, the Fugees, and Halsey. The list is wide and endless,” said Bruce Gillmer, “MTV VMAs” executive producer, global head of music and talent, Viacom and co-brand head, MTV International. “Now the moonperson plants its flag to celebrate all that New Jersey has given to music fans around the globe.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the music and entertainment industry’s brightest stars to Prudential Center, the City of Newark, and the State of New Jersey,” said Scott O’Neil, CEO of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment. “Once again, the eyes of the music industry will turn to one of the Top 10 busiest arenas in the world, Prudential Center.  We look forward to continuing to tell the story of this world renowned venue and the positive change it has generated through music and entertainment in Newark and across the State of New Jersey.”

“We are incredibly proud to host one of the music industry’s most celebrated and adored awards shows, the VMAs, at Prudential Center, the home of sports and entertainment in New Jersey and one of the world’s most popular touring locations,” said Sean Saadeh, EVP of Entertainment at Prudential Center. “The star power of the performers and attendees we expect at this year’s VMAs mirrors the incredible talent that graces our stage at the more than 175 events that play Prudential Center annually. This is a tremendous opportunity to celebrate the musical heritage of New Jersey and the Tri-State Region.”

An official sponsor of the 2019 “MTV Video Music Awards” is Taco Bell®.

MAKING MAISEL MARVELOUS EXHIBIT, NYC

@maiseltv

@maiseltv

Deets: Immerse Yourself in the World of the Amazon Original Series with Interactive Sets, Costumes, and Screenings

Step inside the technicolor world of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Amazon Prime Video’s groundbreaking, critically acclaimed comedy from the ingenious mind of auteur Amy Sherman-Palladino. Written and directed by Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the first and only streaming program to win an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Maisel has earned worldwide acclaim for Sherman-Palladino and Palladino’s trademark dialogue, an Emmy and Golden Globe–winning cast, costume design, and production design. As Vulture says, "The late 1950s is evoked beautifully in every detail of every set, and the costumes by Donna Zakowska are glorious." The series won eight Emmys in 2018 (including four for Sherman-Palladino), and season two of the show is the most-nominated comedy this year, with twenty Emmy nominations in 2019.
 
With this exhibit, The Paley Center for Media welcomes The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to Fifty-Second Street, offering visitors a magical summertime sojourn to the Maisel world of late-1950s New York. 
 
Your journey starts with a visit to the TV studio for the Arthritis Telethon where Midge made her first television appearance. Costumes from the series are on display as you make your way to B. Altman’s switchboard and Rose’s Paris apartment. Head downstairs to take your picture at the Stage Deli and the Catskills hair salon. Then sit back in our Bennack Theater to enjoy your favorite season two episodes on the big screen.

Hint for the Average Socialite: Exhibits are FREE and open to the public. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the door, but RSVP in advance so you don’t miss out!

To celebrate the August 10 opening day, the first 150 visitors to the exhibit will receive a special vintage-style poster, celebrating the New York locations featured in season two.

Please note: the exhibit will close at 5:00 pm on August 10. We apologize for any inconvenience.

MEET CANDACE BUSHNELL, NYC

MEET CANDACE BUSHNELL, NYC

@CandaceBushnell

@CandaceBushnell

Deets: Meet Candace Bushnell at Barnes & Noble Union Square! Candace will discuss Is There Still Sex in the City? and then sign her title. Candace will be in conversation with Taffy Brodesser-Akner, author of Fleishman Is in Trouble.

About Candace
Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, internationally bestselling author of Sex and the CityLipstick JungleThe Carrie DiariesOne Fifth AvenueTrading UpFour BlondesSummer and the City and Killing MonicaSex and the City, published in 1996, was the basis for the HBO hit series and two subsequent blockbuster movies. Lipstick Jungle became a popular television series on NBC, as did The Carrie Diaries on the CW.

About Is There Still Sex in the City?
Twenty years after her sharp, seminal first book Sex and the City reshaped the landscape of pop culture and dating with its fly on the wall look at the mating rituals of the Manhattan elite, the trailblazing Candace Bushnell delivers a new book on the wilds and lows of sex and dating after fifty.

Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, Is There Still Sex in the City? follows a cohort of female friends—Sassy, Kitty, Queenie, Tilda Tia, Marilyn, and Candace—as they navigate the ever-modernizing phenomena of midlife dating and relationships. There’s “Cubbing,” in which a sensible older woman suddenly becomes the love interest of a much younger man, the “Mona Lisa” Treatment—a vaginal restorative surgery often recommended to middle aged women, and what it’s really like to go on Tinder dates as a fifty-something divorcee. From the high highs (My New Boyfriend or MNBs) to the low lows (Middle Age Madness, or MAM cycles), Bushnell illustrates with humor and acuity today’s relationship landscape and the types that roam it.

Drawing from her own experience, in Is There Still Sex in the City? Bushnell spins a smart, lively satirical story of love and life from all angles—marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all. This is an indispensable companion to one of the most revolutionary dating books of the twentieth century from one of our most important social commentators.
