In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place every Tuesday at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm until Dec. 12, 2017.

Over the past 25 years, Paine’s sculptures ruminate upon the clash of the human and the natural worlds, and the warring of chaos and control that result from humanity’s attempts to manage the process. Fusing organic forms, such as trees, flowers, and fungi with man-made structures and materials among which include stainless steel, epoxy, and polymer, Paine invents, distorts, surprises and confounds our perception of the natural and inorganic and the real and artificial. Farewell Transmission presents two distinct series, Dioramas and Dendroids; each expresses the artist’s anxieties about the human impact on our habitat and the mechanized tools that seek to impose order and control, often to disordered and unpredictable ends.

Nathaniel Mary Quinn lays bare the honesty of humanity - with ripples of hope, anxiety of failure, and the traumas of childhood. Quinn experiences visions that he translates into paintings, most of which get titled after people he has encountered, first in the rough South Side of Chicago where he was born and later abandoned by his family, followed by time in an elite boarding school where he took refuge in education, perhaps realizing how much he had learned from life in the projects, growing up fast, yet how much more he needed to know to survive in his changing circumstances .

Book Reading |
What promise does sound knowledge hold for cultural analysis? How might we not only write sound but sound theory differently? In addressing these concerns, the authors in Theorizing Sound Writing also make an intervention into the ethics of academic knowledge, one in which listening is the first step not only in translating sound into words, but in compassionate scholarship. As a method of inquiry, both listening and sound writing expand not only what is known but also how we come to know (and be) as public intellectuals and artisans of sounded, vibrating worlds. Participants include:Deborah Kapchan — Associate Professor of Performance StudiesJ. Martin Daughtry — Associate Professor of MusicCarol Muller — Professor of Music, University of PennsylvaniaTomie Hahn — Associate Professor of Performance Ethnology; Director, Center for Deep Listening, Rensselaer Polytechnic InstituteAlex Waterman — Musician; Scholar; Author

Coined by critical legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw, with reference to the Black feminist experience, intersectionality has become a paradigmatic tool for mapping complex power relations in feminist research and activism. With the promise to ‘decentre’ feminism’s ‘normative subject’, intersectionality has been the epitome of feminist theory’s pursuit of justice across a wide range of ‘differences’ but with a particular focus on race.

The recovery of the republican tradition originally appeared as an attempt at a Third Way. It was a defense of universalistic state action that steered clear of socialism, and an attempt to recapture the language of freedom from the libertarian right and the liberal center. It conspicuously went back behind the social emancipation movements of the nineteenth century to construct an illustrious genealogy for itself, thereby casting both liberalism and socialism as johnny-come-lately upstarts.

To an unprecedented extent, the 2016 election raised questions about the role and function of the media, its responsibilities in a modern democracy, and the degree to which reportage can make a difference in public life. The national discussion of both candidates was driven by an a la carte relationship with reality that culminated in new levels of mendacity, "alternative facts," and, ultimately, toxic confusion. This lecture examines the dynamics at play in the election, the role played by print, broadcast, and social media, and the implications of those dynamics for the “fourth estate” over the next four years of American politics, and into the future.Lecturer: Jelani Cobb

Six live electronics performers will realize this monumental work in it’s entirety, with the score displayed behind them.Not Art Records, in collaboration with International Contemporary Ensemble’s OpenICE program, is proud to present this live realization of Treatise in it’s entirety, featuring an ensemble of live-electronics performers. Composed from 1963 to 1967, Treatise is considered by many to be Cornelius Cardew’s greatest work and a milestone in the development of non-standard scoring. The score itself is undeniably beautiful, an architectural wonder that manages to surprise and delight throughout it’s 193 pages. Composed entirely of abstract visual elements, the work bears no description beyond itself. Each performer is left to his own creativity to choose and create the resulting sounds.

Germany is in the World Cup final; Berlin is dreaming again of a summer fairy tale to forget the world torn by wars. Inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Salzmann sends her protagonists on a seemingly endless search for a new self, which denies traditional concepts of identity.
