Making History: Nuremberg and Augsburg Chronicles, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. Created from 1493 to 1497, Nuremberg Chronicle retells the history of the world as it was believed at the time. The 600-page book was the most complex publication of its day, exploiting the new creation of the printing press to disseminate knowledge. With editions in Latin and German, the tome is illustrated with more than 1,800 woodcut images. In the years following release of Nuremberg Chronicle, an Augsburg, Germany, printer named Johann Schönsperger abridged the text, commissioned woodcuts largely copied from the earlier book, and released a smaller format, undercutting the price of the original and creating what could be argued to be among the earliest examples of theft of intellectual property. The Hyde also has a copy of the resulting Augsburg Chronicle, which will be included in the exhibition. Exhibit runs through Dec. 30.

Included are images of courtesans, landscapes and Kabuki theater. Exhibit runs through Dec. 30.

An 1890s factory becomes a 1940s photography studio becomes a 1990s live/work space becomes a present-day cultural landmark. "We Used To Wear Bonnets & Get High All the Time" is a multi-disciplinary theatrical exploration of inherited trauma, addiction and inter-generational forces beyond our control, as well as an inquiry into how families can be institutions. Through organic innovation, score-like composition of text and movement, humor, raunchiness, high theatricality, and original music by Brian Cavanagh-Strong, "We Used To Wear Bonnets & Get High All The Time" looks into why we've become who we've become, and to what extent we have agency in changing our fate.
