‘Twin Peaks’ Season 3, Episodes 3-4: Falling in Space

- It made sense for Showtime to air the first two hours of the “Twin Peaks” revival together last week, because the episodes flow so cleanly that it’s hard to tell where one ends and the next begins. Putting Part 3 and Part 4 back-to-back, though, wasn’t really fair to either. Part 3 offers a dose of David Lynch madness so concentrated and so puzzling that it might’ve been best just to let it bounce around in viewers’ heads for a week

A Museum Where Giant Art Has Room to Breathe

- Photo NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The master plan for MASS MoCA in 1986 was a wildly ambitious dream: to simultaneously rehabilitate all 28 buildings of a shuttered 19th-century factory in this depressed Berkshire County town for the long-term display of monumental art installations. Instead, economic realities intervened. “We’ve had organic growth, inhabiting the space bit by bit over time,” said Joseph Thompson, the founding director of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, who has just completed the museum’s third phase of expansion on the 16-acre campus — after some three decades

Gregg Allman: A Voice of the South Who Mixed a Musical Melting Pot Photo All of the mythic South was in Gregg Allman’s music: soul, blues, country, gospel, rock ’n’ roll, jazz. The roadhouse, the back porch, the juke joint, the church, the farm, the highway. It was in the weary, determined drawl of his voice, rising to a sustained, honeyed ache or rasping with stubborn gumption. It was in the way his keyboard playing took turns steering the Allman Brothers Band and creating its backdrop: the Hammond organ that could be greasy or celestial, the piano that summoned hymns, honky-tonk, boogie-woogie and jazz   Read More ...

Bluesy Incantation: This Week’s 8 Best Classical Music Moments
Bluesy Incantation: This Week’s 8 Best Classical Music Moments Nina C. Young, when she conceived “Out of whose womb came the ice” (originally as a song cycle) — and the American Composers Orchestra, when it commissioned the work — could not have known that Antarctica and its fast-disintegrating ice would make front-page news days before the piece’s premiere at Symphony Space. Ms. Young and her baritone soloist, David Tinervia, fashioned a text based on documents describing the sinking of Ernest Shackleton’s ship, the Endurance, on his exploratory journey in 1915   Read More ...

Expansive ‘Andy Warhol’ exhibit at the High a modicum of artist’s output
Expansive ‘Andy Warhol’ exhibit at the High a modicum of artist’s output Andy, even though your fame grew for four decades, you were so disco ball-cool and enigmatic, sometimes it feels like we hardly knew ye. Now, Atlantans have the opportunity to know Warhol like never before, as the High Museum of Art presents the exhaustive exhibition “Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation.” Claimed by Portland, Oregon, collector Schnitzer to be the “largest Warhol exhibition ever,” it includes more than 250 prints and ephemera by the prolific, pasty, shock wig-wearing trendsetter   Read More ...

Review: Rom-Com as Ritual in ‘The Art of Luv (Part 5)’
Review: Rom-Com as Ritual in ‘The Art of Luv (Part 5)’ Photo Psychedelic and shambolic, the Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble’s “The Art of Luv (Part 5): Swipe Right/ROKÉ Cupid” explores courtship in the age of the app. Tinder’s tag line, “It’s like real life, but better,” won’t apply here. This piece is fifth in a series that began with “The Art of Luv (Part 1): Elliot” at the 2016 Under the Radar festival and continued through a party, screening and YouTube video   Read More ...

‘Twin Peaks’ Season 3, Episodes 3-4: Falling in Space
‘Twin Peaks’ Season 3, Episodes 3-4: Falling in Space It made sense for Showtime to air the first two hours of the “Twin Peaks” revival together last week, because the episodes flow so cleanly that it’s hard to tell where one ends and the next begins. Putting Part 3 and Part 4 back-to-back, though, wasn’t really fair to either. Part 3 offers a dose of David Lynch madness so concentrated and so puzzling that it might’ve been best just to let it bounce around in viewers’ heads for a week   Read More ...
