I'M PAULA ZAHN AT THE TISCH WNET STUDIOS AT LINCOLN CENTER.

THE CEREMONY FOR THIS YEAR'S AVERY FISHER CAREER GRANT AWARDS TOOK PLACE IN MARCH AT THE JEROME L. GREENE PERFORMANCE SPACE AT WQXR.

THESE INDIVIDUAL GRANTS OF $25,000 GIVE PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE AND RECOGNITION TO TALENTED INSTRUMENTALISTS WHO HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL FOR SOLO CAREERS.

CELLIST JAY CAMPBELL IS KNOWN FOR HIS WIDE-RANGING AND ECLECTIC TASTE IN MUSIC.

HE'S A MEMBER OF A PIANO TRIO WITH TWO FORMER WINNERS OF THE AVERY FISHER CAREER GRANT, CONRAD TAO AND STEFAN JACKIW.

AN ADVOCATE OF CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL MUSIC, HE HAS ALSO COLLABORATED WITH JOHN ZORN AND PROGRAMMED THREE DAYS' WORTH OF MUSIC FOR THE 2016 NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC'S BIENNALE.

IN ADDITION TO HIS CAREER AS A CHAMBER MUSICIAN AND SOLOIST, CAMPBELL IS ALSO ON THE FACULTY AT VASSAR COLLEGE.

> WELL, VARIETY IN GENERAL IS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAINING A CREATIVE DISPOSITION IN WHAT I'M DOING.

I HOPE WE'RE PAST THE POINT WHERE YOU'RE EITHER A SOLOIST, YOU'RE EITHER A CHAMBER MUSICIAN, OR YOU'RE AN ORCHESTRA MUSICIAN.

I ALMOST NEVER HAD A LOT OF INTEREST IN OLD MUSIC.

SO I GREW UP LEARNING IT AND PLAYING IT, BUT WHAT I WAS REALLY ATTRACTED TO WAS THE 20th CENTURY WORKS.

SO WHEN I WAS I THINK EITHER 12 OR 13 YEARS OLD, IT WAS A COMBINATION OF COMPOSING A LOT AND ALSO PLAYING PIECES BY COMPOSERS LIKE PROKOFIEV AND SHOSTAKOVICH, BARTOK, STRAVINSKY.

AND THEN AFTER GETTING MORE IN DEPTH IN SOME OF THOSE PIECES LOOKING, TO SEE WHAT INSPIRED THEM AND THEN KIND OF WORKING BACKWARDS.

SO I FEEL LIKE I'VE KIND OF TAKEN A BACK DOOR TO BEETHOVEN.

I'M PLAYING BEETHOVEN'S TAKE ON AN 'ARIA' FROM MOZART'S 'MAGIC FLUTE.'

IT'S BEETHOVEN ESSENTIALLY TAKING THIS THEME, THIS DUET, FROM THE 'MAGIC FLUTE, AND THEN KIND OF RIFFING ON IT, EXPANDING IT, REHARMONIZING IT.

SO THE THEME THAT HE'S DEALING IS THAT THESE TWO CHARACTERS PAMINA AND PAPAGENO ARE SINGING ABOUT LOVE IN A VERY BROAD SENSE, AND NOT ABOUT BEING IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER.

WE TAKE FOR GRANTED HIS KOOKYNESS BECAUSE LATE BEETHOVEN IS JUST SO CRAZY, BUT WHEN YOU SEE IT THROUGH THE LENS OF SOMETHING SO CLASSICALLY STRUCTURED LIKE MOZART, YOU COULD YOU COULD REALLY SEE WHERE HIS QUIRKS ARE.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME EUNTAEK KIM AND I HAVE PLAYED TOGETHER, AND HE'S AN AMAZING MUSICIAN.

I FIND HE'S HAS A VERY INFECTIOUS TYPE OF MUSICALITY.

IN PERFORMANCE, THERE'S ENOUGH CONVICTION IN HIS PLAYING THAT I CAN GO WITH HIM SPONTANEOUSLY SOMETHING THAT WE HAVEN'T REHEARSED BEFORE.

THE AVERY FISHER CAREER GRANT CAME UP AT AN INTERESTING TIME.

I DEFINITELY GO THROUGH PHASES WHERE I DOUBT MY PLAYING A LOT, SO GETTING A PHONE CALL ABOUT THIS WAS A KIND OF A JOLT OF REASSURANCE.

I THINK THAT IS WHAT KEEPS YOU PRACTICING.

IT KEEPS YOU STRIVING TO FIND WAYS TO CONNECT WITH AN AUDIENCE BETTER, AND I THINK THAT'S ULTIMATELY WHAT OUR ENDEAVOR IS ABOUT.

> HI, I'M CHRISTINA HA WITH THE 'NYC-ARTS' NEWS FROM THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM.

THIS GROUNDBREAKING EXHIBITION FEATURES 25 CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS FROM AFRICA AND OF AFRICAN DESCENT, 12 WORKING LOCALLY IN BROOKLYN AND THE NEW YORK AREA.

ALL THE WORKS ON VIEW OFFER A REVITALIZED APPROACH TO THE HISTORIC ART OF MASQUERADE.

A PERFORMANCE BASED ART, SOMETIMES SECULAR, SOMETIMES SACRED, AFRICAN MASQUERADE IS ALWAYS A PLATFORM FOR POPULAR CULTURE, INTENDED TO AFFECT THE WORLD AND ITS INHABITANTS.

'DISGUISE: MASKS AND GLOBAL AFRICAN ART' BRINGS TOGETHER OVER 100 OBJECTS, FROM SCULPTURE AND PHOTOGRAPHY TO MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATIONS AND IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENTS.

THE EXHIBITION BEGINS IN THE SECTION 'BECOMING ARTIFACTS,' A DISPLAY OF TRADITIONAL 20th CENTURY MASKS INCLUDING THIS DAN GA WREE WREE FROM LIBERIA AND A TEMNE ODELAY MASK FROM SIERRA LEONE.

IN THE NEXT GALLERY, MASQUERADE ART FALLS UNDER THE GUISE 'BECOMING ANOTHER BODY.'

A 20th CENTURY LIBERIAN GOLA ARTIST USED THE FIBER OF NATIVE RAFFIA TREES FOR THE COSTUME AND CROWNED IT WITH A HELMUT MASK CALLED A GBETU.

AND AMERICAN ARTIST AND DANCER NICK CAVE'S 2008 'SOUNDSUIT' IS A MIXED MEDIA WEARABLE FABRIC SCULPTURE ADORNED WITH SEQUINS AND METAL.

MASKS AND GLOBAL AFRICAN ART IS ON VIEW THROUGH SEPTEMBER 18th.

> FREE SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK RETURNS TO THE DELACORTE THEATER, PRESENTED BY THE PUBLIC THEATER.

SINCE 1962, FOUNDER JOSEPH PAPP'S VISION HAS MADE GREAT THEATER ACCESSIBLE TO OVER 5 MILLION PEOPLE.

THIS SUMMER'S FIRST PRODUCTION IS A BOLD NEW TAKE ON THE BARD'S BATTLE OF THE SEXES COMEDY, 'THE TAMING OF THE SHREW.'

THE PADUA OF THIS PRODUCTION HAS ALL THE TRAPPINGS OF A CARNIVAL, WITH ROCK AND ROLL ACTS AND A VERY IMPORTANT CONTEST THAT DRIVES THE TALE.

BEAUTY AND THE FREAK ARE ON DISPLAY, EMBODIED BY TWO SISTERS -- THE BEAUTY QUEEN WOMAN, BIANCA, PLAYED BY GAYLE RANKIN, AND THE GNARLY SHREW WOMAN TO BE TAMED, KATERINA, PLAYED BY CUSH JUMBO.

HERE'S THE RUB.

IT'S AN ALL-FEMALE PRODUCTION WITH SWAGGERING JANET McTEER PLAYING BAD BOY PETRUCHIO WHO TAKES THE KATERINA CHALLENGE, WHILE BIANCA'S SUITORS PLACE BETS AND VIE FOR HER SIZEABLE DOWRY.

> OVER TO THE EASTSIDE OF CENTRAL PARK, AT THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART, A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION IS NOW ON VIEW.

A CELEBRATION OF ANCIENT HISTORY, THE HELLENISTIC PERIOD, ABOUT 300 BC, THE SHOW FOCUSES ON THE PERIOD'S WEALTH, ARTISTRY AND TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENT.

'PERGAMON AND THE HELLENISTIC KINGDOMS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD' BRINGS TOGETHER HUNDREDS OF EXQUISITE OBJECTS CREATED THROUGH THE ROYAL COURTS OF THESE KINGDOMS, WITH AN EMPHASIS ON PERGAMON, NOW KNOWN AS BERGAMA, IN PRESENT DAY TURKEY.

THE FIRST GALLERY OF THE EXHIBITION IS AN INTRODUCTION TO THE AGE OF ALEXANDER.

IN THE FOREGROUND IS A MYRTLE WREATH MADE OF GOLD FOIL FROM THE THESSALONIKI.

HERE ALSO IS A GALLERY DEVOTED TO THE GREAT ALTERED PERGAMON, INCLUDING SLABS FROM THE TELEPHUS FRIEZE.

COPIES OF ORIGINAL ROMAN AND GREEK MARBLES ARE ON VIEW.

OTHER HIGHLIGHT INCLUDE ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING LARGE CAMEOS FROM THE EARLY 3rd CENTURY, A GOLD HAIR ORNAMENT WITH BUST OF ATHENA AND A MARBLE STATURE OF ATHENA OF PARTHENOS DATING 170 BC.

> IN CHELSEA, 'RIOULT DANCE NEW YORK' RETURNS TO THE JOYCE THEATER.

THE NEW YORK BASED COMPANY HAS TEN DANCERS AND IS LED BY HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM JOYCE HERRING AND PASCAL RIOULT, BOTH FORMER MARTHA GRAHAM PRINCIPAL DANCERS.

THERE ARE FOUR PERFORMANCES OF EACH OF THE TWO PROGRAMS.

'WOMEN ON THE EDGE' EXAMINES THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN TIMES OF CONFLICT AND FEATURES THE WORLD PREMIERE OF CASSANDRA'S CURSE.

AND THE NEW YORK CITY PREMIERE OF 'POLYMORPHOUS' IS SET TO SELECTIONS FROM J.S. BACH'S 'WELL TEMPERED CLAVIER.'

THE PROGRAMS ALSO INCLUDE SOME OF RIOULT'S MOST POPULAR REPERTORY.

> AT THE BRUCE MUSEUM IN GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT, THE CITY OF LIGHT IS THE SUBJECT OF AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING PARIS AS IT TRANSITIONED FROM OLD TO NEW TECHNOLOGIES.

IN THE MID 1800s GAS LAMPS WERE WIDELY INSTALLED AND ELECTRIC VERSIONS WERE NOT FAR BEHIND.

A PICTURESQUE ILLUMINATION OF THE CITY IS DEPICTED BY MANY BELOVED ARTISTS OF THAT TIME.

'ELECTRIC PARIS' IS COMPRISED OF ABOUT 50 WORKS, INCLUDING PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHS.

WORKS BY CHARLES COURTNEY CURRAN AND JOHN SINGER SARGENT ARE ON VIEW HERE.

THE PROMINENT ROLE OF ARTIFICIAL PERIOD IS REVEALED IN FOUR SECTIONS.

> ON VIEW IN THE BRUCE SCIENCE GALLERIES IS A COMPANION EXHIBITION BRINGING THE SCIENCE AND HISTORY OF ELECTRICITY TO LIFE.

> AT PAERDEGAT PARK IN EAST FLATBUSH, BROOKLYN, AN OPERA, BASED ON THE GREEK MYTH OF ICARUS, WILL BE TAKE PLACE RIGHT ON ITS BASKETBALL COURTS.

THE PERFORMANCE IS A SITE SPECIFIC WORKSHOP.

A BASKETBALL THE STORY REVOLVES AROUND A HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL PLAYER BOUND FOR STARDOM, WHO IS STRUCK DOWN BY THE HARSH REALITIES OF GUN VIOLENCE.

THE GRANDEUR OF OPERATIC SINGING AND THE RAW GRIT OF STREET RHYTHM COME TOGETHER TO TELL THIS STORY.

THE CAST INCLUDES A MIX OF PROFESSIONAL SINGERS, ACTORS, A HIP HOP ARTIST AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FROM THE EAST FLATBUSH COMMUNITY.

AND THAT'S THE 'NYC-ARTS' NEWS.

FROM THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM, I'M CHRISTINA HA.

> AS THE WEATHER TURNS WARMER AND PEOPLE HEAD OUT TO THE EAST END OF LONG ISLAND, IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE THAT THE LITTLE TOWNS ALONG THE MONTAUK HIGHWAY WERE ORIGINALLY SOME OF THE LARGEST WHALING PORTS IN THE COUNTRY.

THERE ARE STILL STORIES OF CAPTAIN KIDD'S BURIED TREASURE NOT FAR FROM TIFFANY'S IN EAST HAMPTON.

SO IN KEEPING WITH THE NAUTICAL TRADITION ON LONG ISLAND, THE PARRISH ART MUSEUM IN WATER MILL CREATED A NEW EXHIBITION, 'RADICAL SEAFARING.'

THE SHOW HAS ITS ROOTS IN CONCEPTUAL AND PERFORMANCE ART AND THE MAKING OF SITE-SPECIFIC WORKS.

WE SEE HOW THESE ARTISTS MOVE FROM THE STUDIO OR PERFORMANCE SPACE TO THE WATER.

THE EXHIBITION WILL FEATURE 25 ARTISTS WITH WORKS THAT RANGE FROM BOATS TO THE DOCUMENTATION OF CREATIVE EXPEDITIONS, EVEN DESIGNS FOR ALTERNATIVE COMMUNITIES AT SEA.

'NYC-ARTS' SPOKE WITH THE CURATOR OF THE EXHIBIT, ANDREA GROVER.

> WE ARE AT THE PARRISH ART MUSEUM LOCATED IN WATERMILL, NEW YORK.

'RADICAL SEAFARING' REALLY CAME ABOUT JUST THROUGH OBSERVATION.

I NOTED THAT MANY ARTISTS WERE STARTING TO DO TEMPORARY PROJECTS ON THE WATER, WHETHER THOSE WERE JOURNEYS OR ACTIONS, PERFORMANCES, OR A KIND OF FIELD RESEARCH.

SO THE EXHIBIT OVERALL LOOKS AT WHAT WE ARE TERMING 'OFFSHORE ART,' AND WE'RE USING THAT TERM TO DESCRIBE WORKS OF ART THAT PHYSICALLY TAKES PLACE ON THE WATER OR REQUIRE THE WATER FOR THEIR EXECUTION.

THE FOUR CATEGORIES, OR REALLY, ABOUT THE MOTIVATIONS THAT DRIVE ARTISTS TO CREATE WORK ON THE WATER.

SO EXPLORATION IS THE FIRST CATEGORY.

TRAVELING FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER BY WATERWAYS.

THE PROJECT THAT IS BEHIND ME, THE LARGE RAFT, IS BY THE ARTIST SWOON.

HER REAL NAME IS CALEDONIA CURRY.

SHE CAME TO THAT NAME AS A STREET ARTIST ON THE STREETS OF NEW YORK.

IN 2009, SWOON DEVELOPED A PROJECT CALLED THE 'SWIMMING CITIES OF SERENISSIMA,' WITH THE INTENTION OF BRINGING THREE RAFTS TO VENICE.

THESE ARE HANDMADE, VERY FUNKY RAFTS THAT A GROUP OF ARTISTS LIVED ON.

THE THREE RAFTS WERE PUT TOGETHER, LAUNCHED IN THE ADRIATIC SEA, AND THEY WERE MOTORED TO VENICE WHERE THEY ENTERED THE VENICE LAGOON AS UNINVITED GUESTS OF THE 2009 VENICE BIENNALE.

THE SECOND CATEGORY IS LIBERATION, AND THAT ARTISTS DOING THINGS ON THE WATER BECAUSE IT PROVIDES A CERTAIN ELEMENT OF FREEDOM.

PROBABLY THE MOST LITERAL PROJECT IN THE LIBERATION CATEGORY IS BY THE DUTCH COLLECTIVE KNOWN AS ATELIER VAN LIESHOUT.

IN COLLABORATION WITH WOMEN ON THE WAVES, THEY CREATED A PORTABLE GYNECOLOGICAL CLINIC.

THEY USE A MODIFIED SHIPPING CONTAINER TO MAKE A MEDICAL CLINIC THAT CAN BE PLACED ON A RENTED SHIP AND TAKEN TO PORT IN COUNTRIES WHERE ABORTION IS OUTLAWED OR ILLEGAL.

WOMEN CAN MAKE APPOINTMENTS AND THEN THEY CAN TRAVEL OUT TO INTERNATIONAL WATERS, WHERE THE SERVICES CAN BE PROVIDED UNDER THE DUTCH FLAG.

IN THE SPECULATION CATEGORY, WE HAVE A WORK BY BUCKMINSTER FULLER, THE VISIONARY ARCHITECT AND DESIGNER.

HE CREATED WHAT WAS TERMED 'TRITON CITY,' WHICH WAS A PLAN FOR HOUSING IN MAJOR URBAN AREAS THAT WOULD BE JUST OFFSHORE.

THE PROJECT WAS COMMISSIONED BY HUD, AND IT WAS PART OF LYNDON B. JOHNSON'S MODEL CITIES INITIATIVE.

BALTIMORE EXPRESSED DEEP INTEREST IN HAVING TRITON CITY ANCHORED OFF OF ITS SHORE LINE, BUT WHEN JOHNSON LEFT OFFICE AND NIXON CAME IN, THE PROJECT WAS SHELVED.

THE THIRD CATEGORY IS FIELD WORK, AND YOU CAN THINK OF THAT AS ARTISTS WHO ARE OPERATING ALMOST AS PLANAR SCIENTISTS.

THEY'RE TAKING TO THE WATER TO COLLECT INFORMATION AND DATA AND TO EXPERIENCE FIRSTHAND THE COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP THAT HUMANS HAVE TO THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.

IN 2013, MARK DION WAS PART OF WHAT WAS CALLED EXPEDITION GYRE, AND THIS WAS A TRIP THAT WAS ORGANIZED IN COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE ALASKA SEA LIFE CENTER AND THE ANCHORAGE MUSEUM.

IT WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A MULTIDISCIPLINARY GROUP TO TRAVEL 450 MILES ALONG THE ALASKA COASTLINE TO WITNESS FIRSTHAND THE BUILDUP OF PLASTIC DEBRIS THAT'S EXPELLED FROM THE NORTH PACIFIC GYRE.

SO, DION WAS AMONG THE ARTISTS ON THE TRIP.

THERE WERE ALSO SCIENTISTS AND WRITERS, AND HE COLLECTED MARINE PLASTICS, AND THESE RANGED FROM HOUSEHOLD ITEMS TO FISHING ITEMS, TO ITEMS FROM THE TSUNAMI IN JAPAN.

HE'S ASSEMBLED THEM IN WHAT HE CALLS THE 'CABINET OF MARINE DEBRIS,' AND THIS IS AN ASSORTMENT OF PLASTICS THAT ARE ORGANIZED BY KIND AND COLOR AND DISPLAYED IN AN OVERSIZED HUTCH THAT APPEARS LIKE A KITCHEN HUTCH.

AND IT'S SORT OF A REMINDER TO US THAT EVERY DAY WE ARE USING THESE MATERIALS THAT ARE ULTIMATELY NOT DISPOSABLE, AND THEY DO NOT GO ANYWHERE WHEN WE THROW THEM AWAY.

THEY END UP IN OUR ENVIRONMENT, AND THEY END UP CREATING HAVOC FOR WILDLIFE AND MARINE LIFE.

ONE OF THE OTHER IN THE EXHIBITION IS COURTNEY LEONARD, WHO WAS RAISED NOT TOO FAR FROM WHERE WE ARE HERE IN THE MUSEUM ON THE SHINNECOCK RESERVATION.

HER WORK REALLY LOOKS AT THE HISTORY OF THE SHINNECOCK PEOPLE AND THEIR LIVELIHOOD OR THEIR WAY OF LIVING HAD EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE BOUNTY OF THE WATER.

SO THEY WERE VERY ACCOMPLISHED FISHERMAN AND WHALERS.

COURTNEY'S WORK LOOKS AT THESE LOST ANCESTRAL TRADITIONS.

HER CLAY WORKS OFTEN LOOK LIKE SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN DURING THE WHALING ERA.

SO THE WORK WE HAVE ON EXHIBIT IS CALLED 'BREACH,' WHICH HAS MULTIPLE MEANINGS.

BREACH, A WHALE BREACHING, A BREACH OF CONTRACT.

THESE ARE MICACEOUS CLAY VESSELS THAT ARE HAND BUILT TO LOOK LIKE THE TEETH OF SPERM WHALES.

MAYBE THE BOUNTY OF A VERY PRODUCTIVE HUNT FOR WHALES.

IN 2007, THE ARTIST DUKE RILEY BUILT A REPLICA OF AN AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR PRIMITIVE SUBMARINE THAT'S KNOWN AS THE TURTLE.

IT WAS A ONE-PERSON SUBMARINE.

HE LAUNCHED IT IN RED HOOK HARBOR AND ATTEMPTED TO GET A LITTLE TOO CLOSE TO THE 'QUEEN MARY.'

HE WAS ARRESTED AND THE SUB WAS CONFISCATED.

THIS PIECE WAS CALLED 'AFTER THE BATTLE OF BROOKLYN.'

BUT DUKE WAS REALLY QUESTIONING A LOT OF THE ENFORCEMENTS THAT WERE PUT IN PLACE AFTER 9/11 AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND SAID SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT THAT, 'NEW YORK HARBOR IS NO SAFER TODAY THAN IT WAS 1776.'

I'M ANDREA GROVER, AND WE ARE AT THE PARRISH ART MUSEUM IN WATERMILL, NEW YORK, AND I INVITE YOU TO COME TO SEE 'RADICAL SEAFARING,' THE FIRST MUSEUM SURVEY OF WHAT WE ARE TERMING 'OFFSHORE ART' -- ARTISTS' PROJECTS THAT TAKE PLACE ON THE WATER.
