Nabina Liebow will argue that the particular structure of racial microaggressions makes the potential social cost of confronting microaggressors high for microagressees; this is part of what makes patterns of racial microaggressions difficult to disrupt. This difficulty helps make racial microaggressions effective tools for sustaining racial oppression.

Opening Reception |
Nothing and Everything is an exhibition dedicated to the synergistic relationship that existed between visual artists and composers living in New York City during the years following World War II. Curated by Douglas Dreishpoon, Chief Curator Emeritus at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the exhibition features works by Louise Bourgeois, John Cage, Morton Feldman, Philip Guston, Franz Kline, Joan Mitchell, and David Smith – mavericks who pushed the boundaries of their respective mediums to new realms of abstraction. Part of a larger coterie of creative individuals who shared a common ethos, these artists naturally sought each other out, socializing, exhibiting, and supporting each others' ideas. Paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings will be contextualized by a selection of musical scores and ephemera.

Her current research interests are the economic impacts of climate change, apocalyptic survival tactics, feelings of global dread and false notions of freedom. Fremderman's work combines parts and segments of a Capitalist reality as a reflection of daily life that has slipped away from society’s consciousness. Fremderman's work has been exhibited in Mexico and Canada, and throughout the United States and Europe.

Jeff Muhs uses the idea of supernature as an ongoing manifestation of self-discovery for his painting process both intended and happenstantial. Muhs creates work that has become its own unique process of natural creation and discovery. This process began when he first stumbled upon a more spontaneous method of mark-making using improvised brushes and black oil paint over a highly prepared surface. Through the random and overlapping application of paint thinned to various degrees, an organic black and white cosmos evolves. These initial paintings, or backgrounds, are simultaneously ethereal and earthly, displaying an intuitive playfulness that is buttressed by the artist's knowledge and understanding of his materials.

These cyanotype prints of botanical specimens were made by Vietnamese-born artist Pipo Nguyen-duy in Claude Monet’s garden. Nguyen-duy was awarded a grant from The Wallace Foundation and The Reader’s Digest Association to live and work in the garden in Giverny, France. Samples were laid directly on to sheets of paper sensitized with a mixture of Ferric ammonium citrate and Potassium ferricyanide. After the chemistry was allowed to dry, the specimens were exposed by contact with sunlight and then processed there on site. When displayed, AnOther Expedition is a simulated natural history museum installation of a fictitious Vietnamese colonial expedition to France. This installation includes the cyanotype prints of flora specimen as well as water, soil, and other physical elements that were collected from Monet’s garden. The intention is to subvert the historical European Gaze on Asia, to deconstruct the invention of photography as a colonial tool, and finally to question the authority and validity of Western cultural institutional practices. Pipo Nguyen-duy was born in Hue, Vietnam. Growing up within thirty kilometers of the demilitarized zone of the 18th Parallel, he describes hearing gunfire every day of his early life. He later immigrated to the United States as a political refugee.

Hyong Nam Ahn’s art is inspired by the quest for human dignity amidst the failures of mankind’s utopian experiments. The artist feels that though people naturally seek and share love and respect, they establish hierarchies that paradoxically undermine those same values. Within the results of that contradiction, he seeks the benevolence and beauty of the human spirit.Ahn incorporates lights, sounds, and movements into his work and often uses metal wires and neon lights. He designed the main stadium torch tower for the 1988 Summer Olympic Games and has received numerous commissions for public sculptures, including from McDonald’s Corporation and Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Feminist scholar and historian Christina Sharpe interrogates literary, visual, cinematic, and quotidian representations of Black life that comprise what she calls the “orthography of the wake.” Reminding us that a “wake” can be a path behind a ship, a custom to watch over the dead, or a coming to consciousness, Sharpe illustrates how Black lives continue to be swept up and animated by the afterlives of slavery. She shows us what survives despite such insistent violence and negation, and invites us to appreciate how artistic production, resistance, and consciousness enable life in a diaspora. “In the Wake” looks back in order to offer a way forward. A panel of scholars will join Professor Sharpe to discuss her work.

In an interview with the Paris Review, Elena Ferrante stated, “The text contains more than we imagine.”  This seminar engages with the internationally renowned Neapolitan Quartet as it follows two women who live through tumultuous social, cultural and political times. There is much to be explored and discussed as the novels are intelligent and psychological, tender and fierce, brutal and nuanced. You will explore the Quartet’s mythic qualities, created in the landscape of Naples and revealed through the details of history and the mutable facets of friendship.This is the first of a five-session course. The Professor: Susan Barile is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the English Department of Hunter College, where she has taught American literature for eight years.  She received her Ph.D. from The Graduate Center and is presently editing the letters of Edith Wharton and art historian Bernard Berenson.   She is also the author of The Bookworm’s Big Apple: A Guide to the Booksellers of Manhattan.Please read My Brilliant Friend before you come to the session.

At the end of Mark Twain’s masterwork, Huckleberry Finn declares that he plans to “light out for the Territory” to avoid getting “sivilized.” For 130-plus years, readers have been left guessing about his adventures in the West, but now, thanks to Robert Coover, Huck is back. The children of Twain’s books—Huck, Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher—have grown up in the West. Huck is still Huck, retaining his principled rejection of the fame and fortune that Tom, who has married Becky and learned some law from her father, determinedly seeks.

Lynn Emanuel’s (pictured) sixth collection of poetry, The Nerve of It: Poems New and Selected, won the 2016 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize from the Academy of American Poets. The poems “have a rare power: they connect to the world through estrangement” (Eavan Boland). Her dog sequence “The Mongrelogues” from her fifth book, Nose and Hook, is “a bizarre alchemy of Pilgrim’s Progress and Berryman’s Dream Songs… in an inimitable dialect that marries the antiquated syntax of John Donne with the phonetic spelling in George Herriman’s ‘Krazy Kat’ comics” (Adam Tavel). She teaches at the University of Pittsburgh.Patricia Spears Jones is the author of four collections of poetry, including Lucent Fire: New and Selected Poems (2015). Her work has been called “Vibrant with the intensity of blues singers” (Feminist Bookstore News), and she has said “I always think of myself as evoking the blues in my poetry, and the blues are never ‘happy’ even when they’re ecstatic.” Jones “has given us a world where music and brains are allowed to co-exist with instinct, where the lyric and the literal may dwell without eyeing the other with suspicion” (Cornelius Eady). Spears Jones currently serves as a fellow of the Black Earth Institute and has long been involved with the Poetry Project at St. Marks Church.

In 1961, Jeanne Lee made her first recording, a duo session with Ran Blake, who she was to continue to have close ties with for the rest of her career. It was an album of standards, and received at the time little recognition in the U.S. Until rather recently, the next known recording of Lee was on a 1968 lp with the Gunter Hampel Group, where she manifests assorted types of vocal experimentalism. As part of a larger project tracing the trajectory of Lee's full career, this talk will offer a close reading of her 1961 interpretations of standards, supplemented with additional performances of standards recorded in Europe in 1963 and 1966 that are now available.

Filmmakers and musicians come together this evening for two performances highlighting the sublime results of bridging the audio and visual worlds.Immerse yourself in the mysteries of the natural world during this collaborative audiovisual performance from artist/filmmaker Tracy Maurice (Arcade Fire’s creative director from 2004 to 2008) and composer/drummer Tommy Crane (of the band Late Bloomer and member of Port St. Willow). In her experimental film, Maurice creates a world of impressionistic vignettes using dance and microscopy to investigate themes of change, transformation, and reoccurring patterns found in nature. Performed live with Eliot Krimsky and Colin Killalea, Crane’s original score echoes the film using analog synthesizers and improvisational elements to create dynamic ambient soundscapes centered around a percussive counterpoint.Post-Americana ensemble Briars of North America opens up the evening with a sound that has been described as “hushed chamber folk with classical precision and exquisite harmonies.” Members of the Briars have played with Neutral Milk Hotel, Steve Coleman, Meredith Monk, The National, Becca Stevens, Jim Black, and Steve Reich. This performance will feature visuals from longtime Briars collaborator Ryan Murdock, director of Bronx Obama, and will coincide with the release of a new EP, Island.
