Tour | Greenwich Village Neighborhood Tour
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 | Magnetic: Attraction, Repulsion, and the Social Sciences
Although social relations are rarely described in terms of attraction or repulsion, these forces form, in some way, nearly every feature of social life. From classic topics of anthropological inquiry, like communitas and kinship, to more recent academic work investigating the construction of “the enemy” and the politics of solidarity, our social world, it seems, is constructed along the lines of our attractions and repulsions. This conference aims to bring these forces into focus as devices for investigating our objects and practices of inquiry. Attraction and repulsion are forces that draw things together or push them apart, produce new configurations and remake old arrangements. We are interested in what attending to these vectors may illuminate in inquiries, past and present.

Music, the Civil War, and American Memory will feature five speakers: Richard Leppert (University of Minnesota) will talk about period sheet music and its musical and visual impact; Elizabeth Morgan (St. Joseph's University) will discuss and perform some newly discovered battle pieces of the period for piano; Robynn Stilwell (Georgetown University) will discuss cinematic and televisual soundtracks on Civil War themes; the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang will discuss his piece for large chorus and dance, Battle Hymns; the Poets Out Loud publication prize winner Daneen Wardrop (University of Michigan) will discuss the role of music in her prizewinning volume, Cyclorama, about the Civil War; and there will be readings of poems from Walt Whitman's collection of Civil War poems, Drum-Taps, including a poem composed by the other Poets Out Loud prizewinner, Terrence Chiusano, collaged from the titles of the poems in Whitman's volume. The 5pm concert, for tenor and piano, will feature a setting of four Wardrop poems by Lawrence Kramer; settings of Whitman by student composers and also by Kurt Weill; and a group of Stephen Foster songs connected to both Wardrop's and Lang's work. The tenor is the internationally renowned Rufus Muller, accompanied by distinguished pianist Julia Hsu.

Symposium | Where the Wild Books Are
An event exploring and celebrating international picture books and the publishing industry, emphasizing their role in promoting global literacy and creativity. A year ago, noted children’s book specialist Betsy Bird reported on the School Library Journal’s blog that many U.S. publishers and librarians were opposed to buying or republishing picture books first issued overseas. American publishers, Bird said, rejected non-U.S. works as culturally inscrutable or inappropriate for American audiences—an attitude that stems the flow of imaginative, beautiful, and sometimes provocative work into our country today.

Opening Reception |
On March 19, Sara Magenheimer began work on False Alphabets. Magenheimer will construct sculptural sets composed of photographs, objects, and film equipment that will become the backdrop for a new video. The script for the video, written by Magenheimer, continues the artist’s interest in voice, and employs cinematic tropes that conflate embodied language and location. The script will evoke the role of “The Radio DJ” epitomized by characters like Mister Señor Love Daddy in Do The Right Thing and DJ Stevie Wayne in The Fog. These figures act as the omnipotent narrators of their films as well as create diegetic soundtracks to their cinematic worlds. Simultaneously addressing the movie going audience, the other characters, and their communities, their music is embodied rather than a superficial add-on for the viewer’s emotional manipulation. Collaborating artists Eleanor Friedberger (Fiery Furnaces), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Free Paint (Magenheimer and Saunier) and more will perform the music for and act as narrators in this video. Performers will make mixes that involve narration and music. These mixes will function as a soundtrack for the video.

Opening Reception | Performance Art: Nick Mauss and Ken Okiishi's Poetry as not, with singing
From 2006 to 2007 Mauss and Okiishi collaborated on One Season in Hell, an artwork titled after a web-based mistranslation of Arthur Rimbaud’s infamously untranslatable poem Une Saison en Enfer (1873). For One Season in Hell, the artists used now-outmoded word-for-word translators—better known as machine translators—to generate a fragmented version of the opus. Derived from One Season in Hell, Mauss and Okiishi’s new commission investigates the complexities of virtual communication and the variance of meaning in transliterated language. Rather than unraveling an authored text, however, Poetry as not, with singing positions the visitor as poetic generator in which a user’s type is translated into disjointed text and, at times, audible song. Balancing structure and abstraction, while eschewing the fluid speech of today’s statistically based translators, Poetry as not, with singing transmutes the inputted text by a set of irrational rules. Nick Mauss and Ken Okiishi have been working together since they met in art school at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, New York, in 1998. Their collaborative artworks emerge from a continuous dialogue hile they simultaneously pursue individual practices. Past collaborative exhibitions include: One Season in Hell at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York (2007) and at MD 72 in Berlin (2008); A Fair to Meddling Story at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in Germany (2007); the White Columns Annual at White Columns in New York (2012); and an exhibition at Mendes Wood DM in São Paulo (2014).
