Broadway Billboard: Welcome - Ongoing - Titled Welcome, Légaré’s billboard presents an ambiguous scene. An ordinary welcome mat faces the viewer, whose perspective looks out toward the sea. The orientation of the mat may suggest that the sight of the sea, in its sublime immensity and power, may be a welcoming tonic from the conflicts of contemporary society. |Socrates Sculpture Park, 32-01 Vernon Blvd, LIC

Film

Screening and Live Event: Princess Cyd - Fri, November 3 - 7:30 pm - It is summertime, and sixteen-year-old Cyd (Pinnick) decides to take a break from her depressive single father and spend time in Chicago with her aunt Miranda (Spence), a well-known novelist. Soon after her arrival, Cyd encounters a young barista named Katie (White), and their low-key connection quickly becomes something more charged. As Cyd and Katie navigate their new attraction, Miranda sorts through her own complicated relationships, which are brought into higher contrast by Cyd's youthful curiosity and daring. Sensitive to the contradictions and confusions of the ever-changing self, Stephen Cone's subtle and deeply felt film summons that distinct summer feeling when adolescence overlaps with adulthood, skin-exposing days beget soul-exposing nights, and everything feels potently and precariously alive. | Museum of the Moving Image, 36-01 35th Avenue, Astoria
