Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem. Travel and Leisure named it one of America's top 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, and its beauty is rivaled only by its place in American history. These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.

The three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania share a historically extremely precarious, but also potentially lucrative geostrategic position, which throughout the last several years has become of interest to the promoters of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The three “Baltic sisters”, however, are aware of the strategic nature of hard infrastructure precisely due to their peculiar negative experience during both the Soviet occupation and post-Soviet interaction with their direct neighbors to the east. The crucial case of Lithuania as the southernmost and the largest of the three countries demonstrates the nature of the strategic dilemma between opportunities and threats of eastern-bound transnational infrastructural projects. Despite the politically sensitive and opaque option of the BRI, the Balts are forced to prioritize the traditional harder (the so-called “Suwalki Gap”) and softer (e.g. transit of particularly important cargoes) security issues, which China would find hard to fully appreciate. Speaker Konstantinas Andrijauskas is Associate Professor of Asian Studies and International Politics at Vilnius University, Lithuania, and Fulbright Visiting Scholar.

In prisons throughout the United States, punitive incarceration and religious revitalization are occurring simultaneously. Faith-based prison ministries operate under the logic that religious conversion and redemption will transform prisoners into new human beings. Cash-strapped and overcrowded state and federal prisons increasingly relying on ministries to provide educational and mental health services and to help maintain order. These religious organizations are overwhelmingly run by nondenominational Protestant Christians who see prisoners as captive audiences. How do people in prison practice religion in a space of coercion and discipline? What are the legal implications of the state's promotion of Christianity over other religious traditions in some prisons? What role do faith-based groups play in the bipartisan movement for criminal justice reform, and how can faith-based ministries more effectively work on policies to end mass incarceration?Speaker: Tanya Erzen, Associate Professor, Religion and Gender Studies, University of Puget Sound and Executive Director of the Freedom Education Project, Puget Sound.

Lecture |
From Plato to Rawls, political philosophers have focused on justice. And from Cicero to Dwarkin, they have assumed or posited equality as a fundamental requirement for justice, although universal human equality is a very recent posit in comparison to equality within privileged groups. But neither ideals of justice nor equality address injustice when some are treated justly and others are not. Sometimes this contrast in treatment motivates inquiry. For instance: How can formal equality coexist with practical inequality? When is practical inequality unjust? Applicative justice may bridge the gap between those justly and unjustly treated, by applying the rules and practices of justice enjoyed by the former, to the latter. More generally, the progressive theorist should provide a theory of injustice, instead of a theory of justice––there is little if any justification for the claim that we need to understand what ideal justice is, before we can correct injustice. Between ideal justice and real injustice, there are many contending interests and practices and a theory of injustice is thereby required to address those dynamic social structures which result in injustice. Injustice theory should also be able to explain why some forms of disadvantage are unjust, while others may be purely unfortunate, and determine whether this difference between deserts and luck even matters.

Formed in 1900, the Barnard College faculty operated its first half-century largely as a colony ruled by its male minority and subject to the all-male graduate faculties at Columbia. This remained true into the 1950s. Since then, Barnard’s faculty has been successfully liberated, achieving substantial institutional autonomy and gender parity within its ranks. In the course of doing so, it has adopted the research imperative prevailing at Columbia and other research universities. While this is mostly to good effect for an undergraduate institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, it’s not without its challenges. Those interested in the history of Barnard and its unique teaching model won’t want to miss this discussion with one of the College’s finest historians, Professor Robert McCaughey.

Approximately one million Bosniaks were forced into exile. 50 min.Followed by a Q&A with David Pettigrew, filmmaker and professor of Philosophy and Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Southern Connecticut State University.

Join journalists and professors from around New York in discussing the way that journalism is changing under the Trump administration and in our global political climate. With so much at stake, how can our media counter efforts that threaten freedom of speech and truth? Some subjects to be discussed include what to do when news outlets and journalists are silenced; how to holding governments and representatives accountable for providing the truth to its citizens, and how to recognize and understand propaganda and the role of fake news.The media’s role in this climate is multifaceted and, perhaps now more than ever, of the utmost importance. Speakers will give a broad spectrum of opinions in the many ways digital media is addressing our most pressing issues.With:- Terence Moran, Professor of Media Ecology in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University- Susan McGregor, Assistant Professor & Assistant Director, Tow Center for Digital Journalism- Jack Smith IV,  from Mic.

The Peru–Brazil border region harbors perhaps the world's largest remaining refuge for isolated indigenous peoples, sometimes referred to as "uncontacted tribes." Over the past few years, an increasing intensity of sightings, encounters and conflicts as well as sensational international media coverage has raised international awareness about their status, their unique vulnerabilities and the growing threats to their territories and ways of life. This presentation pieces together what little is known about the cultural history of isolated indigenous peoples in the Madre de Dios region of Peru, separates fact from fiction in popular media representations about them, analyzes their rapidly evolving interactions with outsiders, and weighs the complex opportunities and threats they face over the next decade.Speakers:Glenn H.

Irène Némirovsky (1903-1942) was a Russian Jewish immigrant to France who achieved a brilliant career as a novelist during the 1930s but was deported as a “foreign Jew” in 1942 and died in Auschwitz. Némirovsky’s tragic fate mirrors that of many assimilated Jews in Europe who had abandoned Jewish religious practice (sometimes to the point of conversion to Christianity), only to be treated like all other Jews by the Nazis. Némirovsky’s portrayals of Jewish characters in her fiction are controversial, for some readers consider them to be antisemitic. Lecturer Susan Rubin Suleiman, the author of a new book, The Némirovsky Question, argues instead that her Jewish characters exemplify the dilemmas and contradictions of Jewish existence in the 20th century, in Europe and beyond.

Opening Reception |
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visible sites of “smart city” experimentation. In response to catastrophic natural disasters, calamitous traffic congestion, and urban health epidemics, the Centro de Operações Rio (COR) was designed as a corrective tool and as a new command and control hub that would allow the city to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games. Launched in 2010, COR now monitors its urban camera network and information sensors, gauges optimal traffic patterns, determines landslide risk zones, predicts weather disruptions, and maps disease paths.The exhibition shows Rio structured through COR’s control syntax and smart city command processes. This syntax is assembled from seemingly banal “if-then” statements that become surprisingly charged by their encounters with the political and circulatory life of the city. Through COR, the exhibition sees traffic engineering as urban politics and as haunted by potential catastrophe. The exhibition also understands COR as indicative of an important new space of representation for the 21st century city and its emerging computational governmentality.

Some left baseball to pursue other lines of work, such as selling insurance and coal mining. Others have struggled with poverty and even homelessness.Please note: There is no seating at this event.

Martino Marazzi of the University of Milan will offer a critical presentation of his most recent research, which will be a part of the forthcoming edited volume The History of New York City Literature (Cambridge University Press). The book aims at offering a new insight into the literature of New York by examining its global connections. The multilingual and multifaceted literature and written culture produced by immigrants at the height of the great exodus from Europe (in English as well as in Yiddish, Italian, German, Polish, Greek, etc.) witnesses the fascinating growth of a peculiar form of modern subjectivity, infused with gritty realism. One of its most striking peculiarities is the high degree of urban rootedness - so much so that one is tempted to refer to this new subject - well represented in the novels, poetry, and drama of the late 19th-early 20th century - as a form of "city-self". Marazzi will also read excerpts from some of the most significant works of that era.

The 2014 deaths of Michael Brown, an unarmed black man killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who died during an arrest, ignited nationwide protests, outcry, and debate over the state of policing in the United States. After additional incidents of police force, some resulting in death, tensions between police and civilians have galvanized media and public attention. Consensus around the most effective way to keep every community safe and ensure accountability continues to be a matter of debate among policymakers, police, and activists alike.Featuring: Samuel Sinyangwe, policy analyst, data scientist, Black Lives Matter activist, and Campaign Zero co-founder; Eugene O’Donnell, veteran NYC police officer, prosecutor, and John Jay College of Criminal Justice professorModerated by: Elizabeth Glazer, Director of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice.

With sharp wit and irreverence, author Kory Stamper cracks open the complex, obsessive world of lexicography--from the agonizing decisions about what and how to define, to the knotty questions of usage in an ever-changing language. Throughout, she brings to life the hallowed halls of Merriam-Webster, a world inhabited by quirky, erudite individuals who quietly shape the way we communicate.

Interspersed with the images are texts by such recognized writers as Gabriel García Márquez, Eduardo Galeano, Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar, and Vinicius de Moraes, among others. Presenting a local perspective rather a tourist’s viewpoint, Ciudades de América provides an intimate view of these emblematic Latin American cities.

Perhaps no source of energy sparks as much debate as nuclear power. Heralded in the 1950s and 1960s as the way of the future—only to face growing concern in the 1970s and 1980s around ties to nuclear weapons proliferation, safety, and waste—interest in nuclear power plants has chilled. Questions about the future of the industry have been raised, enlivened by Japan's nuclear crisis at Fukushima and the now paramount issues relating to energy security and climate change.Building on forthcoming research from the Center on Global Energy Policy—a three-part series on nuclear technology, the geopolitics of nuclear energy, and U.S. policy—this panel will examine the history of nuclear power, its future, and the policy and business choices that lie ahead. This event is made possible, in part, by support from the Sasakawa Peace Foundation.Distinguished experts joining the panel will include: Dr. Andrew Kadak, former President of the American Nuclear Society and MIT ProfessorTim Frazier, former Senior DOE Official and Principal, TAFrazier LLCDr. Patricia Culligan, Professor of Civil Engineering at the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied SciencesDr. Nicola de Blasio, Fellow, Center on Global Energy PolicyRichard Nephew, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy

How many times have you either traveled to a new and exciting place, or even walked down the street in your own hometown, and come across someone who would make for a perfect subject? The only problem: you lack the confidence or know-how to turn that opportunity into a stunning portrait. Derek Fahsbender has never met a stranger he didn’t find completely fascinating, and he has dedicated much of his time behind the camera to documenting those he meets. In Derek’s return to the Event Space, he will guide you through “The Art of the Street Portrait.” From building the confidence to approach complete strangers, to creating an image that will forever tell the story of the moment, this class will give you the tools needed to stop watching people and start capturing people.

Are crises becoming the new normal? Economic and financial crises have prompted austerity measures that have had disastrous impacts on the enjoyment of human rights including health, education, water and housing, with the rights of the most marginalized consistently hit the hardest. Some crises such as the Flint water crisis are making headlines, while others remain invisible. There is growing global concern about economic inequalities. At the same time, xenophobia, islamophobia and racism are on the rise, with populist politics further threatening those who are already socially marginalized. Panelists will discuss how human rights advocates can confront these worrying trends and why socio-economic rights are now more important than ever, both at internationally and in the United States. Can human rights serve to safeguard the dignity of all people, even in times of crises?Panelists:Aoife Nolan, Professor of International Human Rights Law, University of Nottingham & Hauser Senior Global Fellow, NYUColette Pichon Battle, Executive Director, US Human Rights NetworkIgnacio Saiz, Executive Director, Center for Economic and Social Rights

During the first three centuries of its history, Coptic, the final stage of the Egyptian language written with Greek letters, was only used for literary purposes and private correspondence but not for contracts between individuals, documents sent by individuals to the authorities, or internal administrative communication—areas in which the Greek language had a monopoly. This situation is unique in comparison with what is observed in other provinces of the Roman Empire and cannot be explained by a legal prohibition.With: Jean-Luc Fournet

The art world is a microcosm of the society we live in. It should come as no surprise then that structural racism and capitalism permeates how we look at art; it informs the work that gets prioritized as important and taught in the many classrooms that shape the arts for generations to come. This panel discussion will address the inherent issues of the structures in place at institutions of higher learning that seem content or complacent in continuing to teach an art history that is void of the intellectual and avant-garde contributions by artists of color. Together we will examine cultural erasure and discuss the nature of this oversight with the intention of identifying solutions to the problem.

Robin Preiss Glasser, the Children’s Book Council’s “2013 Illustrator of the Year,” has had two successful careers in the arts, the first as a ballet dancer and then as a best-selling children’s book illustrator. After 11 years performing with the Pennsylvania Ballet, Robin returned to school at age 30 to receive her BFA from Parsons School of Design. From her first book, Judith Viorst’s Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me? I mean It!) Going to Move, through numerous others with such authors as Garrison Keillor, Lynne Cheney, and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, one can see how the years Robin spent studying dance have infused her illustration style with movement and joy. In 2005, Robin was paired with author Jane O’Connor for the now classic Fancy Nancy series, of which there are more than 70 books, including a chapter book series for older children.

Author Bianca Bosker didn't know much about wine--until she found a world of master sommeliers, who detect not only complex flavor profiles, but entire histories and geographies. Thus begins an adventure inside elite tasting groups, exclusive restaurants, a mass market wine "factory" and even an fMRI machine as she attempts to answer what's the big deal about wine?

Conference |
We live in hallucinatory times. The distinction between imagination and perception, on which understandings of reality are based, seem to be collapsing everywhere in our hyper-mediated environment. What is the relationship between between visual images, mental images, and perception? Can the conjunction of hallucination and cinema help us explore these realms?Hallucinations are considered to be illusions – dysfunctional, pathological – in a way that experiences of projected images are not. Yet for quite some time now, cultural theorists have forwarded concepts such as phantasmagoria, simulacra and the hyper-real that complicate the reality of illusions and the illusion of reality. Media theorists claim that cinema is an illusion-forming medium while others have explored the proximity of dreams, visions and cinema.This conference will convene in the productive space of the overlaps between cinematic image-rendering and hallucinations. Aside from depictions of one in the other, how do hallucinations and cinema relate? What do we get when we cross one with the other? Or are they already crossed? The panel will explore the role of other kinds of illusion-forming media, such as plants and dreams, in the making, writing and production of films; the movie theater as a synaesthetic space; the possibility that images – hallucinatory or otherwise – effect the body in ways that might be considered curative or, the opposite, in ways that produce psychosis.Participants: Richard Doyle, Tarek Elhaik, Abou Farman, Yulan Grant, Ute Holl, Chrissie Iles, Nicolas Langlitz, Angelica Ortiz de Gortari, Anand Pandian, Jenny Perlin, Genevieve Yue

Lecture |
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, New York and other cities envisioned an expansive solution to the persistent problems of racial and economic segregation in education. Rather than fighting against the difficulties presented by the city’s enormous school population and huge bureaucracy, New York could leverage its vastness by creating educational parks that would bring together children from neighborhoods throughout the city. There, they would benefit not just from racial and economic integration, but from state-of-the art facilities, unparalleled resources and a greatly expanded array of course offerings made possible by the concentrations of students and faculty. The city opened an educational park in Co-Op City (the Bronx) in the early 1970s, but the bold vision for this project was undermined by increasing racial and economic segregation among the student body, building flaws and rising levels of school violence. Were New York City educational parks simply too big to succeed, or did they flounder as a result of correctable problems such as poor planning, flawed student recruitment methods and inadequate funding? Lecturer Christopher Bonastia is Professor of Sociology at Lehman College and the CUNY Graduate Center, and serves as the Associate Director of Honors Programs at Lehman.

In addition to historic and aesthetic pipes, one Brooklyn-made pipe will be included in the exhibition as a result of a two-day competition held in collaboration with Brooklyn Glass, and juried by David Bienenstock. As cannabis legalization takes root and spreads, much of the media discussion surrounding this societal sea-change has focused on the economics or the politics involved. But how will ending the War on Weed transform us culturally?The hottest hot take seems to be "marijuana is going mainstream," an analysis that rather snobbishly presumes this cultural exchange will be a one-way street. So to better understand what authentic underground cannabis culture has to offer, Outlaw Glass examines work from leading "functional" glass artists and traces the history of this legally grey art form through its birth, the coordinated arrests of some of its leading practitioners, and on into a new golden age of increasing acceptance, aOutlaw Glassnd incredibly advanced works.Featured artist Bob Snodgrass pioneered the craft, building his legend by selling one-of-a-kind hand-blown glass pipes outside Grateful Dead concerts as the band endlessly toured the country. When Snodgrass finally settled down in Eugene, Oregon, in the 1990s, hordes of young artists flocked there to learn the craft and trade knowledge. Today, this new generation of practitioners pushes the art form to previously unimagined new heights.The show will display major works from leading contemporary glassblowers, plus multimedia examinations of these artists' lives, and the sub rosa subculture that supports them.

Lecture |
The most devastating attacks on the Jews of medieval Christian Europe took place in the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon during ten months from June 1391 to April 1392.  While the rioters’ success cannot be easily explained, the intervention of those who pledged to protect the Jews was ineffective. However sincere the intentions of the majority society, and the assurances of its leaders, to protect those who are reliant upon them, the security of a minority community is ultimately, for them, not a matter of paramount importance. Benjamin Gampel, the Dina and Eli Field Family Chair in Jewish History at The Jewish Theological Seminary, specializes in the history of the Jews of the medieval and early modern world.  He is the author of The Last Jews on Iberian Soil, the editor of Crisis and Creativity in the Sephardic World, and recently published Anti-Jewish Riots in the Crown of Aragon and the Royal Response, 1391-1392, which was granted the 2016 National Jewish Book Council's Nahum M.

Williams continues in the vein of recent digitally printed works but on a grander scale. While Williams enjoys the directness that comes from working digitally, he is also invested in the process of printing’s implied challenge to the doctrine of painting. By designing the content of his paintings in the digital environment, Williams both rejects the expressionistic dictum that painting is a direct extension of the body and reinvents it for the 21st century through the terms of computerized experience.

At various moments throughout Ernst’s career, from his Cologne Dada period in the 1920s onwards, the artist turned to three-dimensional materials and sculpture in intense bursts of activity. The exhibition will feature Max Ernst's Corps enseignant pour une école de tueurs (Teaching Staff for a School of Murderers), conceived in 1967 at a pinnacle moment in Ernst’s career in which he fully committed himself to sculpture with fresh rigor. Comprised of three monumental bronze figures, the sculptures synthesize Ernst’s iconic use of language and sharp witticism that in turn transcend personal significance and make pointed commentary on the modern social and political climate.

Traditionally privacy is valued for protecting individual freedom and autonomy. Such concepts of privacy and the underlying idea of autonomy have drawn criticism from various quarters. Feminist thinkers and critical theorists have advanced such criticism on normative grounds. In the recent years, they have been joined by arguments on a pragmatic level, which show that such concepts of privacy no longer can orient life in a world permeated with new threats to privacy, in particular due to the development of information technology. In consequence, many theories have reconstructed concepts privacy in light of this criticism, often by invoking more relational concepts of autonomy. The talk proposes a different approach. Using a more socially situated concept of the subject, which is derived from Hannah Arendt’s thought, it shows that privacy plays a more fundamental value for the constitution of subjectivity, beyond autonomy. Speaker Tobias Matzner works in political philosophy and philosophy of technology. He is a visiting scholar at the Department of Philosophy, and a member of the International Centre for Ethics in the Sciences and Humanities in Tübingen, Germany.

With the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline, the time of the Sioux prophecy foretelling the arrival of a black snake (Zuzéča Sápa) that would poison the water before destroying the Earth has come to pass. Originally slated to cross the Missouri River near the mostly white city of Bismarck, the pipeline was rerouted to carry crude oil under Lake Oahe, the main source of drinking water for the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Answering the call of The Great Sioux Nation, indigenous people from more than 300 tribal nations across North America traveled to North Dakota to stop the construction of the pipeline, making this gathering the largest Native convergence in over a century. In a matter of weeks, thousands more—indigenous and non-indigenous—made the journey, settling in three camps near the site.  Reuters freelance photographer Stephanie Keith documented the protest encampment for 36 continuous days from the end of October through the beginning of December 2016. Keith’s photographs vividly document the actions undertaken by the Water Protectors in defense of the territory and the violent police repression with which they were met. They also immerse the viewer in the political community that emerged in the encampments. Her photographs capture an extraordinary moment in the long history of indigenous resistance–one in which unity, solidarity, direct action, and even fleeting victory, were enacted in a clearing on a Missouri River floodplain.

The exhibition brings together a series of untitled drawings as well as two unique photogram installations.Hubbard considers the field of vision of the camera to be a physical space with boundaries delineated by an invisible cut, the line which separates what is in and out of the frame.  In the exhibition, the series of 15 untitled drawings work collectively to diagram an array of triangulations, each angle representing the point of view of a single camera. In diagramming the field of vision of two cameras, Hubbard considers the social potentiality of these drawings as both cameras are being asked to coordinate and negotiate vision together. They work collectively, though not always in mimicry, to assemble the field and or mark the physicality of the field in a way that is relational. The drawings work as a placeholder for the slippery space between the camera and body as Hubbard diagrams the ways in which our orientations towards each other matter.

Matthew S. Hopper’s Slaves of One Master: Globalization and Slavery in Arabia in the Age of Empire, a finalist for the Frederick Douglass Prize, explores the history of the African diaspora in Arabia in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The book links the personal stories of Africans to the impersonal global commodity chains their labor enabled, demonstrating how the growing demand for workers created by a global demand—including from the United States—for Persian Gulf products led to the enslavement of Africans in eastern Arabia. Hopper, Professor of History at California Polytechnic State University, will be in conversation with Eve M. Troutt Powell, C. Brown Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Tell This in My Memory: Stories of Enslavement from Egypt, Sudan and the Ottoman Empire.

Lecture |
São Paulo’s peripheries were once exclusively the spaces where the poor working classes inhabited their autoconstructed houses and organized themselves into insurgent social movements. In the last two decades, these spaces have changed considerably. The mode of collective life that was based on autoconstruction, industrialism, migration, the dignity of labor, a certain hierarchy of gender roles, and the articulation of urban social movements is being profoundly challenged by new modes of consumption in what are now much improved and heterogeneous urban spaces. This consumption is aligned with new kinds of cultural production, protest, and circulation from the peripheries to the rest of the city.  This talk analyzes the emerging collective life and its consumption-fueled everyday dynamics, in which new arrangements of domestic life and gender roles are at the core of mutations. The talk also suggests that these peripheral transformations happen not only in São Paulo, but also in many other autconstructed metropolises across the global south.  Speaker Teresa Caldeira is professor and chair of the Department of City and Regional Planning and co-director of Global Metropolitan Studies at UC Berkeley.

In 2012, thirty-eight-year-old Ariel Levi was pregnant, married, and had a home. A month later, none of that was true. In this memoir, Levy, a staff writer for The New Yorker, picks you up and hurls you through the story of how she built an unconventional life and then watched it fall apart with astonishing speed. Like much of her generation, she was raised to resist conventional rules—about work, about love, and about womanhood. In sharp, stunning prose, Levy chronicles the adventure and heartbreak of being “a woman who is free to do whatever she chooses.” Her own story of resilience becomes an unforgettable portrait of the shifting forces in our culture, of what has changed—and what is eternal. And of how to begin again.

William Milberg (Professor of Economics) will focus on the analysis of international trade, beginning with a history of the world trading system and the theory of international trade. The class will then look at indicators of country-level success in international trade, comparing the US, China, Mexico and some others. Milberg will then consider more closely the impact of trade liberalization on the US economy, specifically on profits, ages, employment at the national and the state levels. Finally, the class will turn to the issue of the global governance of trade, and consider the impact of the WTO, the TPP, NAFTA, the general rise of nationalism among industrialized countries, and the likely shifts in international trade and exchange rate policy that may occur with the political change in the US.

Bloom’s reimagining of Dickinson was ignited when she learned that the poet was a pianist and improviser, reaffirming Bloom’s intuitive connection to the jazz-like quality of Dickinson’s writing.This is a collaboration across time between two pioneering women artists - one a 21st century jazz musician, the other a 19th century visionary poet. Poetry recitation from actor Deborah Rush will echo and intermingle with music performed by the Jane Ira Bloom quartet featuring jazz artists Dawn Clement (piano), Mark Helias (bass), and Bobby Previte (drums).

A vibrant new production of the gender-bending, heart-mending comedy Twelfth Night. When a young shipwrecked immigrant named Viola takes a chance on the “wet foot, dry foot” policy of the mid-‘90s and washes up amidst the shore of glitzy Illyria, Florida, she finds herself a stranger in a fabulously strange new land. Thinking her twin brother has drowned, Viola throws herself into a new gig as assistant to Orsino, a wealthy Floridian with a serious case of love sickness for a wealthy lady, Olivia. Having disguised herself as a boy to become Orsino’s right hand man, Viola (now Cesario) is tasked with delivering his adoring valentines. But as Viola woos in her boss’s name, she falls head over spiky heels for the man himself, while Olivia turns her affections to the intriguing young messenger boy, Cesario (also Viola). Set to the rhythms of house, Cuban and ‘90s beats, Saheem Ali directs this colorful comedy about the power of new people and new experiences that throw the world into beautiful disarray, and open hearts and minds to the possibility of love.Continuing its commitment to bringing free Shakespeare to the community and strengthening audience engagement with the arts, The Public Theater will mount its mobile unit again this spring. Now in its seventh year, the Mobile Unit’s free tour celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the mobiler unit bringing Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts.

He will suggest that, for design researchers and practitioners, a re-thinking of the relationship between gōng and gòng can result in better public living environments.Kin Wai Michael Siu is Chair Professor of Public Design and leader of the Public Design Lab at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Whether you are a seasoned professional, a proud shower singer, or someone who has never opened their mouth to sing, Inside Voice allows singers and non-singers alike to uncover the power and beauty of their full 5-octave range while developing a deep, emotive connection to their own unique sound. Through exercises and group songs that are as silly as they are revelatory, Inside Voice shows that the only limits on our voices are the ones we impose on them and that to work on the voice is to work on the self. You’ll learn to harness powerful, heartbreaking, visceral, fragile, and otherworldly sounds you never dreamed were inside you all the while dramatically extending your range, building your confidence, and strengthening the emotional links between you and your voice.With Jon Stancato.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick. Tour takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Opening Reception |
Steeped in disparate references to tea, this new body of work materializes a wide range of relationships, both intact and fragmented, that playfully riff on archetypes, cultural artifacts, and familiar imagery. At the show’s center is a sculpture hinting at an intricate mind map that weaves throughout the exhibition. A basketball-hoop-backboard, with an infinity-mirror platform, scrolls associative loops of LED text, and supports an overstock.com chrome tea cart decked with knotted objects: a tip-jar stripper pump, an Arizona iced-tea can sandwiched between Ronald Reagan’s inauguration cup and saucer, a geisha-fied novelty Reagan teapot with neck tattoos reading “Fate” and “Faith.” A cardinal covered tea-towel drapes over its handlebar beside a clamped iPad amplified by a can-shaped speaker in a drink holder below.
