Weekend Recommendations – Lennon and Sci-Fi Art
This week there are some major exhibitions going on in town – first John Lennon: The New York Years at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex . Created for the NYC by Yoko Ono and curated by Jim Henke, Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, JOHN LENNON: THE NEW YORK CITY YEARS serves as a tribute to Lennon, his work both in and out of the music scene and the undeniable influences of New York City. A portion of the cost of each ticket to the exhibition will be donated to Spirit Foundations, a charitable foundation set up by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, to further their philanthropic initiatives.

Next, Park Avenue Armory Goes Sci-Fi via the Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto – Made of hundreds of yards of stretched Lycra tulle, it looks something like a superfine spider web, laden with egg sacks, that has drifted down onto the skeleton of a forgotten species of dinosaur shaped like a cephalopod.
