“Rachel Harrison: Life Hack”

“Rachel Harrison: Life Hack”
5 out of 5 stars

Supposedly coined in Silicon Valley, the term life hack describes a quick, easy fix for increasing one’s productivity and efficiency, though a cynic might define it as a euphemism for willingly surrendering yourself to corporate soul-sucking. Since Rachel Harrison is no stranger to cynicism, it’s safe to assume she’s being ironic in selecting “Life Hack” as the title of her career survey at the Whitney. In fact, that choice seems to be less about committing to late capitalism’s empty promises than about the broader absurdity of thinking that life offers any kind of shortcut—especially for women, who, obviously, put up with monumental shit from men. Harrison, however, puts “monumental shit” in a physical context. Though she also works in drawing and video, her default mode is sculpture, a discipline with a rich history of erecting phallic shrines in metal and stone to male privilege. It’s no surprise, then, that Harrison has devoted herself to turning the genre’s gendered legacy on its head. Harrison emerged in the early 1990s, a period following the 1987 stock market crash that derailed the go-go ’80s art scene. Many galleries shut down, forcing artists and dealers alike to formulate some life hacks of their own. A prime example was Harrison’s first big splash: a 1996 installation at a Brooklyn apartment-slash-gallery that’s been remounted here at the exhibition’s entrance. (Oddly, the wall text omits the venue’s name, which was Renée Riccardo’s Arena Gallery.) Referencing

Nervous Laughter

Nervous Laughter

When done properly, stand-up comedy can be about so much more than just making people laugh. It can also be used as a cudgel against tyranny and injustice, the jokes we laugh at can make us look within and confront the thorny issues that rarely come up in polite conversation.  When creating the concept for their bi-weekly comedy show Nervous Laughter, Sarah Harvard and Gene Meyer wanted to tap into this approach. Each show has a different theme (past themes include Green Card and Culture Class) and features an outstanding lineup of stand-ups exploring the topic. Ideally you'll laugh a lot, cringe a little and walk out of the room thinking.

Theater review by Adam Feldman  Here’s my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, of course, I mean Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell’s fizzy, moody, thrilling new Broadway musical. Ostensibly, at least, the show is a modern retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy goes to the land of the dead in hopes of retrieving girl, boy loses girl again. “It’s an old song,” sings our narrator, the messenger god Hermes (André De Shields, a master of arch razzle-dazzle). “And we’re gonna sing it again.” But it’s the newness of Mitchell’s musical account—and Rachel Chavkin’s gracefully dynamic staging—that bring this old story to quivering life. In a New Orleans–style bar, hardened waif Eurydice (Eva Noblezada) falls for Orpheus (Reeve Carney), a busboy with an otherworldly high-tenor voice who is working, like Roger in Rent, toward writing one perfect song. But dreams don’t pay the bills, so the desperate Eurydice—taunted by the Fates in three-part jazz harmony—opts to sell her soul to the underworld overlord Hades (Patrick Page, intoning jaded come-ons in his unique sub-sepulchral growl, like a malevolent Leonard Cohen). Soon she is forced, by contract, into the ranks of the leather-clad grunts of Hades’s filthy factory city; if not actually dead, she is “dead to the world anyway.” This Hades is a drawling capitalist patriarch who keeps his minions loyal by giving them the minimum they need to survive. (“The enemy is poverty,” he sings to them i

The best of New York

The 100 best restaurants in NYC to dine at now
Restaurants The 100 best restaurants in NYC to dine at now

October 2019: Since taking the reigns of Time Out New York’s Food & Drink section earlier this year, our two new editors wanted to take a look at what was and wasn’t working for our crown jewel guide to dining out. Today, we release a dramatic overhaul of the list, replacing 65 restaurants—perhaps TONY’s biggest revamp to date—that our editors believe better reflects the way that you, dear readers, like to dine around the best city on earth. We’re talking fresh, inventive, memorable and, clearly, the tastiest establishments in town. These are the 100 restaurants we can’t quit—even when there’s a constant revolving door of new bar and restaurant openings in NYC. We hope that you’ll find this latest Time Out Eat List more useful in your day-to-day: a reflection of places you actually can (and really want to) eat at, whether you’re looking to splurge a little or it’s rent week.  Yes, what we consider the “best restaurants in NYC” is obviously highly subjective. But, one thing is for sure: you don’t need to spend a $100 or more in New York to have an exquisite experience. The Time Out team has crisscrossed the city to dine our way throughout the five boroughs. While we’ll always have more ground to cover, you’ll notice that the Michelin-adored restaurants and temples of haute cuisine—Eleven Madison Park, Per Se, Daniel, for example—are no longer on this list. We’ll still respect these white table-clothed restaurants, but we're much more interested in taking a holistic look at
