Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

Colloquium |
With the flow of finance, people, and influence across national borders undermining the traditional sovereignty of the nation-state, this event explores alternative ways that we might think about the definition and role of how a space is delimited and ruled. The conversation considers new technologies including the structure of the stack as described by theorist Benjamin Bratton. In several texts Bratton describes the relationship between different types of automated calculation such as mobile apps, smart cities, and cloud platforms amongst others. In recent years Bratton, as well as other academics and artists, have developed substantial discourse around this term, considering how these seemingly invisible structures that inform and underpin our everyday lives operate in ways that are akin to older, more familiar models of the market and the state and also how they differ.This panel brings those conversations together with the history and contemporary moment of the No DAPL protests, one of the largest gatherings of indigenous nations in one place that has gained significant momentum and visibility in the news to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline.ParticipantsNobu Aozaki, artistBenjamin Bratton, Professor, Speculative Design; Director, Center for Design and Geopolitics, University of California, San DiegoTyler Coburn, artist and writerJaskiran Dhillon, Assistant Professor of Global Studies and AnthropologyAdelita Husni-Bey, artistDaniel Sauter, Associate Professor of Data Visualization

First, this presentation will briefly summarise and draw on the overall perspective, approach and findings of the applicant’s comparative European research on Islam/Muslims over the last 15 years. It will then zoom in on key findings from the specific analyses undertaken in the proposed project during the fellowship. This will be an original study of how a country’s institutional accommodation of Islam relates to: a) the way that the issue is (de)legitimated by the claims of political actors in mass mediated public debates; and b) the view on ordinary people living in that country on the issue. It examines the degree to which public debates act as a ‘barrier’ or ‘bridge’ to the socio-cultural integration of Muslims in the UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands. Lecturer Paul Statham is Professor of Migration and Director of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR) in the School of Global Studies at the University of Sussex, UK.

From the artist: “As a realist artist working from an abstract reference point, I search for the painting’s essence, to find its inherent visual power. My need to communicate through line, form, texture, and color is overwhelming and literally beyond words. A successful work of art has its own energy that the viewer can feel. I know how I feel when I look at art that moves and inspires, and gives me hope. To embrace the creative spirit is one of the joys of being human.”

Extreme Portraits 1970-1999 features approximately 30 gelatin silver prints by California-based Ken Ohara. Ken Ohara (b. 1942) is known as an innovator who expands the boundaries of photographic portraits to the extent that our familiar perceptions of others and ourselves become precarious. While his work has earned international acclaim through numerous exhibitions and publications, this gallery show marks his solo debut in New York, where his career began five decades ago. The exhibition's catalog features an essay by Sally Stein, Professor Emeritus at University of California, Irvine.

Ruth Bauer Neustadter's Go Figure is a painting exhibition and visual dance exploring the variations and possibilities of the human figure through the eyes of one artist. Techniques, materials, styles, subject matter vary in each painting. Some are expressionistic figures made with paint on canvas, others are constructions and some are made with found objects on wood. Out of Bounds presents felted sculptures by Susan Kaplow. Kaplow's work falls outside the bounds of the usual felting practices, which employ the softest fibers and aim for the smoothest surfaces to create wearable and decorative objects. Instead, Kaplow chooses rougher fibers and techniques that preserve a reference to the animals that provide the raw material. She adds cooler elements-- metals, bones, thorns-- to play against the warmth of the felt, increasing the dynamic tension in the sculptures.

“Once Upon a Time...” the world was considered flat and the earth the center of the universe. We now speak of a global geography which intersects the practices of diverse cultures and habits. Currently, however, we are faced with false news, alternative facts, gentrification, xenophobia and racism. But we can still dream of the survival of the beautiful, fair social practices and delights of the imagination. We can dream of equality for all.As globalization transforms the receding industrial age into our current information age, and as data continues to pile up at an exponential rate, our world has become utterly reconfigured—ideologically, economically, technologically and aesthetically. An all-pervading media buzz blurs and deafens any careful examination necessary to make distinctions—subtle or otherwise—about what is at stake. In light of the recent American Apocalypse and the growing importance of symbols and their interpretation, can artists become a useful political force in at least representing an antidote to historical amnesia? Creativity is our ally.Once Upon a Time... represents the diversity of media as practiced in the BFA Fine Arts Department. From video to video mapping to sculpture, painting and drawing, the works exhibited here reflect our current state of affairs.The exhibition highlights those born in the USA, combined with students whose heritage is English, Ghanian, Iranian, Russian, Dominican, Japanese, Israeli, Kashmiran and Korean. Artists in the exhibition include: Kesewa Aboah, Maumoon Ahmad, Alana Austin, Emma Fague, Raquel Hazell, Ella Hilsenrath, Mahyar Kalari, Seoyoung Kim, Shinnosuke Miyake, Viktorea Nagibina, Natalie Ochoa, Maria Semenenko, Eduardo Solana and Logan Swedick.

What is the meaning of heroism and courage in times of war? As the "Great Generation" of WWII soldiers is quickly disappearing, French New York-based journalist Maurin Picard met with eleven American, French, German and Canadian veterans. They shared their own personal odyssey – when lives were spared by a badly aimed shot, a faulty bombshell, or a miraculous reflex.

Discussion |
Inspired by one of David Markson's late works of fiction, this panel invites authors of non-traditional fictions to discuss their work, writing processes, inspirations, and motivations. Such hybrid forms are books that mix fiction and non-fiction, books that employ intertextuality, that use research and the documentary impulse in some way, or involve the intermixing both lyrical and more prose-like approaches. With Laurie Sheck, David Shields, Shelley Jackson and Wayne Koestenbaum. Moderated by Lucy Ives.
