Symposium |
Our cultural, political and physical geographies proliferate with wounded places: sites of conflict and natural disasters; places marked by layers of turmoil and conquests; impromptu refuge locations that become permanent. “Making home” in these places, seldom a choice, becomes simultaneously a material and symbolic endeavor, involving both design and memory practices.Wounded places are scarred with collective memory of what had happened: they contain markers of the past, which may or may not be legible to those who make home there. Mnemonic activities, whether vernacular (informal) or officially imposed, can either facilitate or constrain the making of home in wounded places.This international symposium is conceived as a polyphonic intervention engaging the realms of design studies, art, and the social sciences. We propose the following questions to inform our discussions:How to make home in wounded places?What is the role of memory tensions in this process?How does the (re)design of wounded places impact their users?How are wounded places appropriated by the politics of memory?What are the strategies for navigating through wounded places — as individuals, as communities, as societies?

A superior if sometimes overlooked trumpeter (the Kenny Dorham of the 1990s), Claudio Roditi is a frequently exciting hard bop-oriented player. He came to the U.S. to study at Berklee (1970-1971) and gigged around the Boston area until moving to New York in 1976. Roditi played with Charlie Rouseand Herbie Mann, and most importantly, in the early '80s, he started working regularly with Paquito D'Rivera. The reliable trumpeter has been on many straight-ahead recording sessions, in addition to being a member of Dizzy Gillespie's United Nation Orchestra. Roditi recorded as a leader for Green Street (an obscure date in 1984), Uptown, Candid, and Reservoir, among other labels.This Rio-born trumpet and flugelhorn player has been on the US jazz scene since studying at Berklee College of Music in 1970. Often overlooked among the top players, Claudio has lived in New York for 30 years. He is known for his warm, fluid sound combining post bop and Brazilian elements. A Grammy nominee, he has recorded a dozen albums as a leader. With his Resonance / Heirloom debut, he will get the national push which he so richly deserves. He has worked with Herbie Mann, Charlie Rouse, Paquito D'Rivera and Dizzy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra. This swinging and sensual date features the legendary drummer Duduka da Fonseca and pianist Helio Alves. On this recording, Claudio performs a number of originals and lesser known gems from the Brazilian repertoire.The Eyes of the Masters series is a special class where legendary artists share their experiences, knowledge and insights into the world of music both as an art form and as a career.

Conference |
How are we, as global citizens, accountable to each other? This year’s Scholar and Feminist Conference explores the haptic—the perception and manipulation of objects using the sense of touch—as an ethics of being in the world. Feminist scholars, artists, and activists come together in this utterly unique two-day conference to examine the many ways in which touch helps us better understand the politics and aesthetics of embodiment, situatedness, and performance. Through a series of panels and artistic encounters, we consider how our senses—not only touch, but taste, sight, and sound—situate us as bodies in political and economic contexts (such as labor), as well as in personal and sensory ones.

Film |
Based on Salvatore Di Giacomo's novel, Assunta Spina was filmed on location in Naples in 1914 and was produced and released by Caesar Film in 1915 in Italy. It features the queen of Italian silent screen Francesca Bertini, who is credited with directing the film together with her co-star, Gustavo Serena. As soon as the film opens with Assunta, played by Bertini against the background of the Bay of Naples, an operatic tale of love and sacrifice unfolds and we meet a strong working class woman in turn of the century Naples. Faced with the harsh realities of violence, jealousy and corruption she preserves her dignity while struggling to survive. Bertini's performance set a new standard for Italian cinema. Filmed on location in Naples.71 min.Contemprary composer John T. La Barbera's score, arranged for violin, mandolin and guitar, creates an intimate atmosphere by keeping an accompaniment of emotions found in the melodic themes of the characters in a leitmotif style to highlight the melodramatic and picturesque style of the film. As the film captures glimpses of life on the streets of Naples, references to popular traditional music can be seen in the background shots. From dancing the polka accompanied by serenading musicians to pastoral shepherds playing bagpipes for Christmas, he presents a glimpse into this period by using the rhythms of tarantella, polka, tango, waltzes, and pastoral serenades, to enhance the realism surrounding the circumstances of Assunta's tragic and passionate story.

The Music of Chick Corea is a concert highlighting the work of one of the most significant jazz pianists and composers since the 1960s. Since embarking on a solo career in 1966, Chick Corea has been at the forefront of jazz, both as a renowned pianist forging new ground with his acoustic jazz bands and as an innovative electric keyboardist with Return To Forever, the Elektric band and now the electro/acoustic Vigil. A DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, 22-time Grammy winner, and keyboard virtuoso, Corea has attained living legend status after five decades of unparalleled creativity and an artistic output that is simply staggering. The concert will be led by longtime faculty member pianist Michael Cochrane. Joining Cochrane are fellow faculty members Jeremy Noller on drums, Kevin Farrell on bass and guest artist Eli Asher on trumpet.

Symposium |
Our cultural, political and physical geographies proliferate with wounded places: sites of conflict and natural disasters; places marked by layers of turmoil and conquests; impromptu refuge locations that become permanent. “Making home” in these places, seldom a choice, becomes simultaneously a material and symbolic endeavor, involving both design and memory practices.Wounded places are scarred with collective memory of what had happened: they contain markers of the past, which may or may not be legible to those who make home there. Mnemonic activities, whether vernacular (informal) or officially imposed, can either facilitate or constrain the making of home in wounded places.This international symposium is conceived as a polyphonic intervention engaging the realms of design studies, art, and the social sciences. We propose the following questions to inform our discussions:How to make home in wounded places?What is the role of memory tensions in this process?How does the (re)design of wounded places impact their users?How are wounded places appropriated by the politics of memory?What are the strategies for navigating through wounded places — as individuals, as communities, as societies?

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.

Conference |
How are we, as global citizens, accountable to each other? This year’s Scholar and Feminist Conference explores the haptic—the perception and manipulation of objects using the sense of touch—as an ethics of being in the world. Feminist scholars, artists, and activists come together in this utterly unique two-day conference to examine the many ways in which touch helps us better understand the politics and aesthetics of embodiment, situatedness, and performance. Through a series of panels and artistic encounters, we consider how our senses—not only touch, but taste, sight, and sound—situate us as bodies in political and economic contexts (such as labor), as well as in personal and sensory ones.

Legendary gospel quartet The Blind Boys of Alabama has had an amazing career—since meeting at a state-run, segregated vocational institute for the blind in the 1930s, they have toured continuously, amassing five Grammy Awards and universal acclaim. They soared through the golden era of gospel in the 1950s, experienced difficult times when rock ’n’ roll took over, and resurged with the Broadway hit Gospel at Colonus. Now, as the group enters its seventh decade, they are as artistically vital as ever, collaborating with musicians like Peter Gabriel, Ben Harper, and others. As the surviving band members recount their unlikely success story, we see a rare, remarkable view of life on the road and in the studio with a group of renowned performers.89 min.

Giovanni Aloi examines the history of artists working with animals, and the implications this has for notions of authorship and collaboration.This talk evaluates the challenges involved in human/animal relations that currently unfold in contemporary art. Determined to overcome the objectifying iconographies of animal representation in classical art, contemporary artists are more than ever before committed to envision new human/animal engagement. Notions of authorship, skill, aesthetics, and meaning are thus brought into question by the inclusion of living animals in the processes of art making. In this context, creativity and collaboration become new markers of the limits and potentialities involved in rethinking the very boundaries of artistic practice.

This class will focus on the politically significant yet seldom acknowledged common ground between a section of labor reformers and political abolitionists in New York on questions of land and freedom for all citizens, regardless of race. Through an investigation of personal papers, public lectures, and newspapers of the period leading up to the Mexican-American War, this class will trace the transformation of radical reform traditions from practices divided along racial lines, to movements with shared goals and priorities. We will see how in the lead-up to this conflict, Northern reformers were pushed to develop innovative political and social organizations in an effort to break the pattern of compromise with the slave South, and how Paineite (after Thomas Paine) circles of agrarian radicals and abolitionist networks organized—sometimes in tandem—to form a Northern cross-class opposition to slavery.

This group formed in 2015 out of a desire to offer a different layer into prayer in the congregation. The idea came from a very involved congregant to have people come together to learn to sign and sing a prayer or a song and to offer it to our community during Shabbat services. It was wildly successful and made a huge impact on the community. They are excited about this group continuing to learn and grow and share their songs with others.

I consider myself a very opinionated man who uses words as fighting tools.” This panel promises a lively discussion of the intersection between LGBTQ writing and politics, from HIV/AIDS activism, to class and race identity, to gay persecution both historical and contemporary, exploring what it means to be a sexual minority in today’s political climate. Featuring Marlen Schachinger, Simon Froehling, Fabian Hischmann, Francine Prose, and moderated by William Johnson of Lambda Literary.

These Things Happen is a play about the costs of keeping, and of revealing, a painful family secret. Joanne, a 40-ish painter living in suburban New York, is stunned to learn that her daughter, Jesse, was molested as an adolescent by her uncle—the same uncle who, we discover, abused Joanne at the same age. Jesse intends to confront and expose him on the occasion of his granddaughter’s bat mitzvah, a plan that meets with denial and resistance from both her mother and grandmother. An intensifying series of confrontations between Jesse, Joanne and her father and mother uncover patterns of betrayal that span generations—and threaten to extend into the future. It’s up to Jesse to lead the battle to break the chain of lies told in the name of a family's 'survival'.Written by Natalie Bates.
