A lecture by historian William Wander. The Tompkins Market stood on the small city block bounded by Sixth Street, Seventh Street, Hall Place and Third Avenue, where the newest Cooper Union building, 41 Cooper Square, now stands. The first Tompkins Market opened here in 1830, but the most famous was the 1860 cast iron building designed by James Bogardus. This building contained the public market on the first floor, and the armory and drill rooms of the Seventh Regiment of the New York State National Guard on the second and third floors - an unusual combination in the 19th century or today.

Beginning in 1987 with an action calling out Wall Street profiteering on AIDS drugs, ACT UP, the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, significantly improved HIV drug development, championed HIV prevention, cared for its members, and won laws helping people with AIDS and HIV. The AIDS activist group’s unique form of fierce and fabulous direct action confronted the opponents of people with AIDS and stopped onerous laws targeting that population. With ACT UP’s powerful messaging and political engagement, people with AIDS were transformed from “AIDS victims” into a movement that saved millions of lives. Current and former members of ACT UP will talk about How to ACT UP.

At the root of cinema is the art of editing; the assemblage of footage in time, which by definition creates its own rhythm. Filmmaker Emily Hubley, who has been making animated shorts since 1980, worked closely with her parents, pioneer animators Faith and John Hubley, and their classic works utilized music created specifically for the films by Quincy Jones, Benny Carter and Dizzy Gillespie. Hubley's feature film, The Toe Tactic had its theatrical premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in January 2009 and was released on DVD by Kino International in the fall.
