Hosted by author and MSNBC's Ari Melber and featuring author Shalom Auslander, MoMA curator Ann Temkin and jazz legend Jay Leonhart
People leave work early so they can get home to watch The Beat with Ari Melber on MSNBC. He explains politics, the law—and hip-hop—like nobody else on TV. Ari will explore the world of cable news and how he manages to keep it all straight when events are cascading around us minute by minute. And that includes the names of all the Russian oligarchs. Get ready for Chapter VII of our serialized novella “Author to Come,” written by author Shalom Auslander (Foreskin’s Lament, Hope: a Tragedy). Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA Ann Temkin will explain how a painting gets to the museum and it isn’t by Uber. Jazz legend Jay Leonhart leads the 1-Train Band.
In Your Face–New York captures the spirit, the energy, the music, noise and creativity of this capital of the world. It’s a live performance extravaganza and also a video/audio podcast that features the best of New York’s actors, writers, musicians and more.
