Coming Up: Adrien Brody, Affordable Housing, and “The House Bunny”

Henrik Eiben’s “Follow the Smoke Man” at Pablo’s Birthday.

Poets House has an exhibit of the work of children’s poet and artist Douglas Florian (that’s his painting at left). On Feb. 26 there will be a book signing at 11 a.m.

At 6 p.m., Community Board 1 is hosting a panel discussion about affordable housing. If you’ve seen it, drop by and let ’em know where to find it. 49-51 Chambers, room 709; bring ID.

The Tribeca Meet & Greet, organized by BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, is at Canal Park Playhouse from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. “Anyone with an interest in Lower Manhattan is welcome to attend. The food and drinks”—from Canal Park Playhouse, Frankly Wines, and MaxDelivery—”are free as well.”

At RH Gallery: John O’Reilly’s “I stand at look at them long and long” (left). From the release: “This exhibition will include recent sculptures depicting animals which embody the illusion of breath and experience. O’Reilly’s sculptures are modeled in clay and then cast in resin infused with particles of porcelain, bone and graphite.”

MARCH 7–11
Hotel Particulier is pleased to announce ‘Under Construction,’ an exhibition taking place during the week of the 2012 Armory Show in NYC, presenting works by six artists whose galleries are participating in the art fair. Hotel Particulier aims to reintroduce café society with its new concept for the New York cultural and artistic landscape by offering multiple curated spaces including a gallery, an independent shop, and a café featuring a champagne|wine bar with small culinary plates. All spaces are separated and brought together by a common thread—a curated theme on a critical contemporary issue. Each exhibition and accompanying series of special programming will run for two to three months. Located in an old Soho garage north of Grand Street [bet. Varick and Sixth], and currently under construction, this raw space offers an opportunity to exhibit work in a setting that is different from the traditional white box art gallery.”

Two Richard Pryor films screen at 92YTribeca: Blue Collar (directed by Paul Schrader and also starring Harvey Keitel) and Which Way Is Up?

At BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center: “The Magic School Bus, Live! The Climate Challenge.”

Adrien Brody joins 92YTribeca for a screening of his new film, Detachment, also starring Marci Gay Harden and Christina Hendricks and Blythe Danner and Lucy Liu and Tim Blake Nelson and William Petersen and Bryan Cranston.

Eleven Madison Park’s Daniel Humm and Will Guidara are at 92YTribeca.

Joseph Arthur and Joan as Police Woman play City Winery.

Jolie Holland plays City Winery.

At 92YTribeca: a screening of the very cute The House Bunny, followed by a panel discussion (!). This trailer made me laugh more than all of Bridesmaids (but I guess that’s not fair since I walked out of Bridesmaids halfway through).

APRIL 4–28
“Insights” by Stephan Gersh at Soho Photo: “Gersh […] began photographing in 1964, when he worked as an assistant to Ansel Adams. [He says:] ‘There are gifted moments when the world I see reveals hidden energies and forms of Great Nature. In a state of openness and receptivity, I am blessed at those moments to glimpse both.'” Also: Exhibits by Regine Corngold, Peter Agron, Jorge Luis Montegudo, and Christer Allevik.

  1. Adrien Brody is magnificent in Detachment. If you have a chance to see this movie, you should take it. So much better than the (mostly) shallow stuff that will be honored tonight….
