Magnetic Sound Baths is an immersive listening experience, where participants are invited to lay back amidst a wash of meditative sounds. A sound bath creates a temporary break from the sensory stimuli of an active life, allowing people space with their thoughts, and time to inspect their own internal mental narrative. The installation is comprised of several sound-generating sculptures, electroacoustic works of art that use magnetic fields to induce vibration and soundwaves in metal and wood. Space is limited to 20 visitors per session. Walk-ins welcome, space permitting. Participants are encouraged to bring mats, blankets, pillows; anything for comfort while listening.

Built exclusively around James Baldwin's words, I Am Not Your Negro delves into the complex legacy of three lives (and deaths) that permanently marked the American social and political landscape. Framing the unfinished work as a radical narration about race in America, Peck matches Baldwin's lyrical rhetoric with rich archival footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, and connects these historical struggles for justice and equality to the present-day movements that have taken shape in response to the killings of young African-American men including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, and Amir Brooks.95 min.Shown December 9th - December 15th at 5:00pm and 7:30pm.

Kameelah Janan Rasheed is an artist, writer and former public school social studies teacher. Through immersive text-based installations, large-scale public text pieces, publications, sound projects and discursive programming, her work engages with both figurative and literal language to explore how we narrate the connections between the past, present and future. In her interdisciplinary and research ­intensive practice, she considers ideas of selective legibility and opaqueness as a political strategy; the tension between narrative contingencies and narrative resolutions; as well as black traditions of covert literacies and self-publishing.

A timely and important conversation with Sam Tanenhaus and Richard Wolin reflecting on the 2016 election and its implications for the future of American politics.  The 2016 election has raised fundamental questions about the well-being of democracy in America. It has also raised important questions about the health of the two-party system and the future of the Republican Party. It is in this spirit that political analysts and pundits have been wondering aloud: is “Trumpism” a blip on the radar, or is it likely to become an enduring feature of the American political landscape? If the latter is the case, what type of political challenges and upsets might we expect in the future?

Michael Fried is as much a poet as he is a critic. His experiences among artworks and luminaries of the art world have resulted in a canonized body of criticism, but they have also provided the raw material for many of the poems in his newest collection.

In this poignant memoir, told through the eyes of the author as a four-year-old child, Rwandan genocide survivor Umunyana recounts how she barely survived the Rwandan Genocide after being separated from her family and how she coped in the aftermath of the massacre. Umunyana discovers that “I have learned that we cannot do for others what we cannot do for ourselves. By nourishing the light within ourselves, we find strength we never knew was there.”

Some of the best jazz dancing appeared in “race” films intended for black audiences in the 1930s and 1940s. You’ll watch the Nicholas Brothers, a young Sammy Davis Jr, and the amazing “Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers” in films you probably never knew existed.  We’ll also watch a few choice moments from Hollywood films with Gene Kelley, Savion Glover, and the Condos Brothers.

Built exclusively around James Baldwin's words, I Am Not Your Negro delves into the complex legacy of three lives (and deaths) that permanently marked the American social and political landscape. Framing the unfinished work as a radical narration about race in America, Peck matches Baldwin's lyrical rhetoric with rich archival footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, and connects these historical struggles for justice and equality to the present-day movements that have taken shape in response to the killings of young African-American men including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, and Amir Brooks.95 min.Shown December 9th - December 15th at 5:00pm and 7:30pm.
