To mark the opening of the exhibition Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955–1972, Yvonne Rainer and Lucy Sexton come discuss their careers in dance. In the 1960s, Rainer was a leader in the dance avant-garde through the rule-breaking collaborative, Judson Dance Theater. In the 1980s, DANCENOISE, Lucy Sexton’s performance art duo with Anne Iobst, rocked the New York club scene with transgressive, socially conscious acts of precisely aimed mayhem. With the help of performance clips, archival display, and mutual curiosity, Rainer and Sexton will question each other about how their separate generations transformed the New York dance scene.

Cities can play a key role in literature—from Ferrante’s Naples to Calvino’s fantastical creations, Joyce’s Dublin to Dickensian London. They can be a familiar space, or an alienating force; a character in themselves, or simply a backdrop for events.Novelists Jessie Chaffee (Florence in Ecstasy) and Kristopher Jansma (Why We Came to the City) are joined by essayist and editor Garnette Cadogan (Non-Stop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas) to explore how cities inspire writers, and how they are represented in both fiction and non-fiction.

Slide Lecture |
This illustrated lecture reveals the cross-cultural encounters—the collaborations, borrowings, and acts of literary larceny—that produced the Arabian Nights in European languages. Ranging from the coffeehouses of Aleppo to the salons of Paris, from colonial Calcutta to Bohemian London, Paulo Lemos Horta introduces audience to the poets and scholars, pilgrims and charlatans who made crucial but largely unacknowledged contributions to this most famous of story collections.

Lissa Rivera (photographer and curator) and BJ Lillis (historian and museum professional) will discuss their project ‘Beautiful Boy.’ Rivera’s photographs of BJ, her romantic partner and muse, reference historical examples of gender construction in art. The techniques, fantasies and narratives of femininity are at once dissected and indulged. Their work is obsessive, decadent and unabashedly pleasurable. Rivera and Lillis will discuss the role of the artist in transcending identity categories and breaking down double standards, the boundaries between public and private expression, embracing fluid identities and recognizing that truth and fantasy do not have to be opposites.

Photojournalism is no longer about being just a good photographer, but entails being a “Swiss Army Knife’ in the field. This means taking video, knowing geography, writing a good story and caption, taking notes, recording interviews and being active in social media including Twitter, Facebook and other mediums. By becoming proficient at various skills, the photographer becomes more essential to the newsroom and an indispensable force in providing content. As aggregation becomes more common-place for some newsrooms, editors realize more than ever that providing original quality content retains readers and makes the individual more necessary in a more competitive environment. Todd Maisel, Senior Staff Photographer, New York Daily News, will give some secrets to his success in the face of reductions in staff and cuts to photographic budgets in a challenging media.
