Book Discussion | The Fast by John Oakes


Whether for philosophical, political, or health reasons, fasting has become increasingly popular, from health advocates who see it as a detox method, to the faithful who fast in prayer, to activists using hunger strikes as an effective means of peaceful protest. With fasting at an all-time high in popularity, John Oakes explores the surprising history and science behind the practice. Oakes speaks with journalist Anne Nelson about the virtues of holding back, of not consuming all that we can, and reconsidering your place in the world.

Lecture | Ignorance and Indifference of the Deaths of Select Others


While much concern has rightfully been expressed for Ukrainian civilians suffering as a result of the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian War, many have noted that the level of concern expressed for Ukrainians exceeds that expressed for civilians, particularly non-white civilians, who die in other conflicts. This talk by Lisal Dror of Princeton University attempts to offer an explanation of the disparate concern Westerners have for civilians who die in different wars abroad.

Opening Reception | Justin Cloud: Knightwatch


Brooklyn-based sculptor Justin Cloud’s inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring a series of ten metal wall-works in custom aluminum frames. Coming from a lineage of trades workers, such as farmers, mechanics and engineers, Justin Cloud began his professional career as a Ford mechanic and Ball can factory worker in Wyoming. Building on his experience and skilled understanding of metal, Cloud studied and trained himself in various artistic methods of metalwork. To create this series, he employed the ancient techniques of repoussé and chasing, art forms historically used to emboss metal objects, adorning everything from armor and chalices to the Statue of Liberty with ornate designs. To start the process, Cloud heats a slab of molten pitch, or resin, to use as a flexible support on which he can hammer and chisel the metal from the reserve side, shaping the aluminum to create designs in low relief. For Cloud, this technique is akin to alchemy, a magical transmutation of metal–a material renowned for its rigidity and durability–into something malleable and shapeable to one’s will.

Slide Lecture | Memories of the Arctic


A panel discussion with esteemed New York-based art historian Dr. Elizabeth Cronin and Austrian photographer Gregor Sailer. Cronin recently curated the exhibition The Awe of the Arctic: A Visual History” at the New York Public Library. This large, multi-part survey explores how the Arctic has been visually depicted, defined, and imagined over the past 500 years. Meanwhile, Sailer, who is featured in this exhibition, has extensively traveled to the Arctic Circle, visiting Canada, Norway, Greenland, and Iceland to capture images of some of the world’s northernmost architectural structures. Through PowerPoint presentations and a conversation moderated by Dr. Stephanie Buhmann, Head of Visual Arts, Art, and Architecture, Cronin and Sailer will discuss their experiences and findings on this complex subject, which triggers our imagination but often eludes clear concepts. The evening will conclude with a Q&A session with the audience.

Book Club | Baise Moi by Virginie Despentes


Baise-Moi is one of the most controversial French novels of recent years, a punk fantasy that takes female rage to its outer limits. Now the basis for a hit underground film which was banned in France, Baise-Moi is a searing story of two women on a rampage that is part Thelma and Louise, part Viking conquest. Manu and Nadine have had all they can take. Manu has been brutally raped, and determines it's not worth leaving anything precious lying vulnerable -- including her very self. She teams up with Nadine, a nihilist who watches pornography incessantly, and they enact their own version of les vols et les viols (rape and pillage) -- they lure men sexually, use them up, then rob and kill them. Drawing from the spiky cadences of the Sex Pistols and the murderous eroticism of Georges Bataille or Dennis Cooper, Baise-Moi is a shocking, accomplished, and truly unforgettable novel.

Film | What Happened to Jones? (1926): silent film


Reginald Denny was the most popular of the “light comedians” of the silent screen. In a series of expertly-made farces for Universal Pictures, the British-born Denny starred as an All-American everyman always embroiled in a myriad of problems and complications. Funny features such as California Straight Ahead (1925), Skinner’s Dress Suit (1926), and this program’s What Happened to Jones? (1926) made Denny one of Universal’s biggest moneymakers of the 1920s. Edward Everett Horton warms up the house for Mr. Denny with his 1927 two-reeler No Publicity. The Silent Clowns film series is New York’s longest-running regularly scheduled silent film showcase, featuring silent films paired with live piano accompaniment and discussion. Screenings feature piano by MoMA’s Ben Model, with an introduction and Q&A by film historians Model and Steve Massa. Registration required.

Discussion | Green Colonialism: Geopolitics, Global Justice and Ecosocial Transitions


Beneath the sustainability branding lurk new environmental injustices and green colonialism. The green growth and clean energy plans of the Global North require the large-scale extraction of strategic minerals from the Global South. The geopolitics of transition imply sacrificing not only territories, but truly sustainable ways of inhabiting this world. A new subordination in the global energy economy prevents societies in the South from developing sovereign strategies to foster a dignified life. The speakers will address the specifics of this new green colonialism and the alternatives being constructed by activists and policymakers in the Global South in coordination with allies in the Global North.

Lecture | My Own Atlantis and the Anthropocene in Russian Comics (in-person and online)


St. Petersburg artist Olga Lavrenteva’s sprawling 2023 graphic novel My Own Atlantis is many things — rollicking treasure hunt, tragicomic reflection on classic Russian literature/history — all anchored by the work’s setting: the Karelian Isthmus. This region, fought over for centuries by the Swedes, Finns, Russians and indigenous peoples, is Lavrenteva’s home. She invests the novel with her affection and admiration for the area’s cultural, historical and ecological complexity. Ironically, coincident with My Own Atlantis’ production and publication there emerged a new threat to the isthmus: a massive government-sponsored infrastructure project, the Primorsky Universal Transshipment Complex. Environmentalist activists — including Lavrenteva — protested what they see as the thoughtless development of a diverse ecosystem. In this talk professor José Alaniz, author of Resurrection: Comics in Post-Soviet Russia (2022), discusses My Own Atlantis as an example of modern environmentalist Russian comics in the Anthropocene.

Screening | Moonstruck (1987) with Cher and Nicolas Cage


No sooner does Italian-American widow Loretta accept a marriage proposal from her doltish boyfriend, Johnny, than she finds herself falling for his younger brother, Ronny. She tries to resist, but Ronny lost his hand in an accident he blames on his brother, and has no scruples about aggressively pursuing her while Johnny is out of the country. As Loretta falls deeper in love, she comes to learn that she's not the only one in her family with a secret romance. Director: Norman Jewison Cast: Cher, Nicolas Cage, Vincent Gardenia, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello Cher is an American singer, actress, and television personality. Often referred to by the media as the "Goddess of Pop," she has been described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry.

Nicolas Cage is an American actor and film producer. Born into the Coppola family, he is the recipient of various accolades, including an Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Golden Globe Award.

Book Discussion | The Hebrew Teacher:  3 Israeli Women in Crisis


Israeli author Maya Arad discusses her first book translated into English with Joshua Cohen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Netanyahus. Three Israeli women, their lives altered by immigration to the United States, seek to overcome crises. Ilana is a veteran Hebrew instructor at a Midwestern college who has built her life around her career. When a young Hebrew literature professor joins the faculty, she finds his post-Zionist politics pose a threat to her life's work. Miriam, whose son left Israel to make his fortune in Silicon Valley, pays an unwanted visit to meet her new grandson and discovers cracks in the family's perfect façade. Efrat, another Israeli in California, is determined to help her daughter navigate the challenges of middle school, and crosses forbidden lines when she follows her into the minefield of social media. In these three stirring novellas—comedies of manners with an ambitious blend of irony and sensitivity—celebrated Israeli author Maya Arad probes the demise of idealism and the generation gap that her heroines must confront.

A conversation between Pulitzer-prize-winning writers and lifelong friends Hua Hsu and Salamishah Tillet as they discuss their paths and the formation of their respective commitments, their process of navigating different genres of writing, and the lessons they've learned from each other and others about voice, style, and structure. They will consider how the category of the "public intellectual," a figure which loomed large when they were in graduate school together, has evolved over the past decade, with the emergence of new forms of online writing and criticism, the contraction of mainstream journalism, and the rise of "hybrid" academics addressing different audiences simultaneously.

Screening | String Trio, Los Angeles 1946: documentary about one of the 20th century's most important and influential composers


A celebration of Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951), one of the 20th century's most important and influential composers. The event will feature the New York City premiere of a film by David Starobin, String Trio, Los Angeles 1946, a documentary about Schoenberg. In August of 1946, Schoenberg's heart stopped beating. He composed "String Trio" immediately after his recuperation to try and describe his brush with death. The documentary looks back at Schoenberg's 1933 departure from Nazi Germany, his career, and the composer's years in Los Angeles. In the film Gertrud and Arnold Schoenberg's three children, Nuria, Ronald, and Lawrence comment about their memories of their father, and well-known director Peter Sellars and violist Kim Kashkashian speak about the "String Trio." After the film, there will be a panel discussion.

Concert | Brass Quartet Performs Music by Randy Newman, Woody Guthrie, and More


The Westerlies (Riley Mulherkar, Chloe Rowlands, trumpet; Andy Clausen, Addison Maye-Saxon, trombone) perform the music of John Prine, Randy Newman, Woody Guthrie, the Golden Gate Quartet, originals and more! About the Performers The Westerlies, “an arty quartet…mixing ideas from jazz, new classical, and Appalachian folk” (New York Times) are a New York-based brass quartet. From Carnegie Hall to Coachella, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and projects with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along. Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the West to the East. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers” (NPR’s Fresh Air), The Westerlies explore jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create the rarest of hybrids: music that is both "folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music).

Book Discussion | The Consultant’s Compass: Navigating Success with Courage, Curiosity, and Compassion


Have you ever wondered about the enigmatic world of consultancy and whether it might be the right fit for you? If the title ‘consultant’ has ever piqued your curiosity, then this book is your passport into that realm. Drawing from firsthand experience, the author takes us on a journey from initial skepticism to eventual admiration for consultants. With a memorable encounter as the pivot, she recalls an old colleague’s dismissive description of consultants: “They ask you for your watch and then tell you the time.” Yet, her personal experience was vastly different. She met a consultant who was insightful, engaged, and who connected the dots in a way that seemed effortlessly brilliant. So, what is a consultant? Dr. Mary Cianni's book delves into the various shades of consultancy, busting myths and reshaping perceptions. While traditional definitions, like Schein’s 2016 explanation, depict consultants as mere distant experts, the book advocates a more modern and relevant perspective: Consultants as partners and helpers.

Lecture | Corporate Power in the Age of AI and the Cloud


The world’s largest corporations are predators. While some profit from extracting nature, the rest appropriate knowledge and information far and wide. They capture all sorts of intangibles produced with and by other organizations and turn them into assets that they mobilize in multiple and complementary ways to capture value, among them, from global value chains, franchises and platforms. They even steer the production of new science and technology. These resulting spheres of global control and accumulation that span beyond the assets of each big corporation are not silos. Powerful corporations co-evolve, establishing economic power relations also among themselves; unequal relations that have been exacerbated as digital technologies, led by big data and artificial intelligence, push them all to become Amazon, Microsoft and Google clients. Giants like BlackRock, Coca Cola, Disney, L’Oréal, ICBC, McDonalds, Nestlé, Pfizer, Siemens, Toyota, TSMC, Visa, Walmart and many more became active players in the harvesting and analysis of data with artificial intelligence by relying on Big Tech cloud services. All the former are frenemies of and strategically subordinate to Big Tech in order to crunch big data to control those further below. Failing in building their corporate digital twin means losing grounds at a time when precisely Big Tech are entering every sector, from healthcare to finance.

Talk | A Future in Ruins, Or, How To Make Theater After the End of the World


We seem to have arrived at the end--be it the end of democracy, of humanity, or of a livable planet. Living under this impression, theatre makers have started to question theatre's ability to still be relevant in our present and have begun to search for new aesthetics and modes of production vis-?-vis the experience of end-times. This talk focuses on theatrical aesthetics that have started to evolve in the German-language theatrical landscape since the 1970s as a reaction to the experience of living at the end of the world. Analyzing the theatre of Heiner M?ller, Elfriede Jelinek, and others, Teresa Kovacs will sketch the beginning of a 'theatre of the void' that understands catastrophe not as an endpoint after which there is mere nothingness, but as a realm of potential and possibility. Such a theatre, Kovacs argues, allows interesting insights into how to find radical futurities in the midst of a planet in ruins. Speaker Teresa Kovacs is Assistant Professor at the Department of Germanic Studies at Indiana University.

Book Discussion | Climate Capitalism: Winning the Race to Zero Emissions and Solving the Crisis of Our Age


Our age will be defined by the climate emergency. But contrary to the doomist narrative that’s taken hold, the world has already begun deploying the solutions needed to deal with it. On a journey across five continents, Akshat Rathi's Climate Capitalism tracks the unlikely heroes driving the fight against climate change. From the Chinese bureaucrat who did more to make electric cars a reality than Elon Musk to the Indian entrepreneur showing how to deploy solar on a tight budget, we meet the people working to scale technologies that are finally able to bend the emissions curve. Through stories that bring people, policy and technology together, Akshat Rathi reveals how the green economy is not only possible, but profitable. This inspiring blend of business, science, and history provides the framework for ensuring that future generations can live in prosperity and that the wheels of progress don’t falter.

Book Discussion | Fifth Avenue--Architecture and Society: History of America's Street of Dreams


Fifth Avenue, America's 'Street of Dreams,' embodies New York's evolving architectural, urban, and social history. Present on the 1807 Commissioners' map emerging from a country road, then in the proposed grid plan of 1811 as one of the major boulevards, Fifth Avenue by the end of the 19th century had become synonymous with a lavish fashionable life, grand mansions, and services catering to the wealthy. As in her previous books, The Villard Houses and Triumvirate: McKim Mead & White: Art, Architecture, Scandal and Class in America's Golden Age, Mosette Broderick gives life to the glamorous stages of New York society. In her book, she also tracks the street's shifting fortunes as fashion, hotels, and apartment towers bring a new skyline to the elite environs.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: Mixed Media (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group. The fourth encounter will focus on Mixed Media (part 2): Composer Francesco Bianchi (1752 - 1810) with sculptor Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822) When are marble sculpture - and music - all about the surface, and does this make them superficial? How can our understanding of italianita? in music be informed by Italian sculpture? The insubstantial nature of musical materials - mere vibrations that move through the air, imperceptible to sight and touch - creates in us a longing for an analog made of solid material. In sculpture we have just such an analog: run your hand across the carved wood; feel the heat radiating from the bronze; watch the light play off the marble surface. Find the substance of Italian music by exploring its relationship to the substance/s of sculpture, one medium at a time.

Film | Free Women (2017): Feminism and the Italian Resistance


Through valuable archive material and the real voices of female partisans, this film tells the story of the role of young women - most of them teenagers - at the time of the Italian Resistance. This period marked the birth of feminism in Italy and in other European Countries, where the struggle for liberation was also the fight for female emancipation and the pursuit of freedom and equality, in the family and in the workplace. How did they participate in the Resistance and in these political battles? What happened after the Liberation? Were expectations fulfilled and promises maintained? Their reflections, lucid, ironic, sometimes bitter, reveal a piece of our forgotten history. They make us reflect on the role of women today and on the conquests yet to be achieved.

Book Discussion | Why We Die: The New Science of Aging and the Quest for Immortality (in-person and online)


Nobel Prize-winning author Venki Ramakrishnan and Titia de Lange, Director of the Anderson Center for Cancer Research at The Rockefeller University in a discussion that will unveil the strides science has made in understanding aging and longevity—and Ramakrishnan’s new book.  Unraveling the universal human fear of death, Ramakrishnan traces our historical attempts to evade its inevitability—from religious afterlife beliefs to the existential realization in childhood that all we cherish is short-lived. He guides readers through the cutting-edge research shaping our understanding of mortality and raises the tantalizing possibility of extending our lifespan exponentially. As he navigates the recent breakthroughs in altering physiology to extend life, he contemplates life, and the biological purpose of death, and probes the social and ethical implications of pursuing immortality.

Stella Adler Arts Justice Division, created in 2001, identified a new strategic goal in 2013: to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline.

Today Outside/In is a transitional company of 100 members who create new, short works inspired by their personal experiences and current social issues. Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In.

Discussion | Managing Climate Risks: Financial Alternatives and Infrastructure (in-person and online)


Much of the current discussion of climate risk focuses on large-scale strategic change and public policy. However, the effects of climate change are already being seen today in essential sectors of the financial markets. Insurance and reinsurance companies are at the forefront of managing these risks, and if the insurance markets break down, it will have significant consequences for real estate and municipal financing. Insurance companies don’t only protect against catastrophic events. They also provide income-smoothing products to enable companies to mitigate exposures to increasingly volatile seasonal weather events. The panel, from two of the world’s largest reinsurance companies and a prominent independent think tank, will talk about the impact of climate change on the insurance markets and its knock-on effects in the financial markets, how communities can make themselves more resilient and better able to finance themselves, and how insurance derivatives can be used to measure non-catastrophic events such as extreme heat waves and deep freezes.

A broad comparative meditation on modes of storytelling Haiti's past, specifically in the wake of increased and sudden mainstream attention to that history on such platforms as The New York Times ("Haiti: The Ransom Project") and HBO (Raoul Peck's Exterminate All the Brutes). Thinking through both Edouard Glissant's engagement with History/histories/stories from an Antillean perspective and Saidiya Hartman's fraught encounters with The Archive, Professor Kaiama Glover considers the prose fiction works of three contemporary Haitian women writers – Evelyne Trouillot, Edwidge Danticat, and Myriam Chancy – as historiographic interventions of a particular order.

Alaimo discusses why women experts who use social media to bolster their professional profiles often end up with fewer followers, reposts, and opportunities than men in their fields.

Alaimo speaks these issues and her book with Madison Malone Kircher, a reporter covering internet culture for The New York Times.

Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In. Conservatory students and alumni who have a deeply vested interest in art, theater and social good may volunteer to support the ensemble.

Concert | Klezmer Music Ensemble


Klezmer is an instrumental musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Central and Eastern Europe. The essential elements of the tradition include dance tunes, ritual melodies, and virtuosic improvisations played for listening; these would have been played at weddings and other social functions. The musical genre incorporated elements of many other musical genres including Ottoman (especially Greek and Romanian) music, Baroque music, German and Slavic folk dances, and religious Jewish music. As the music arrived in the United States, it lost some of its traditional ritual elements and adopted elements of American big band and popular music.

Opera | Opera & Democracy: Songs from Exile


The concert introduces two German-Jewish composers in American exile: Paul Aron and Rosy Geiger-Kullmann. Aron, a protagonist of the German interwar avant-garde, founded an opera company in New York in the 1950s to popularize the works of ?migr?s such as Darius Milhaud, Kurt Weill, Tadeusz Kassern, and Ernst Toch through piano arrangements and English translations. One of these - his English version of Toch's short opera Egon & Emilie - will be presented alongside exile songs by Aron. Geiger-Kullmann, a successful opera composer of the Weimar Republic, was born in Frankfurt and fled from the Nazis to New York and later to Monterey. Excerpts from her opera Columbus, written after her arrival in New York, and two stage works from her years in Germany have been reconstructed and will be performed in excerpts - a world premiere.

One of the oldest continuously used City Halls in the nation that still houses its original governmental functions, New York's City Hall is considered one of the finest architectural achievements of its period. Constructed from 1803 to 1812, the building was an early expression of the City's cosmopolitanism. City Hall is a designated New York City landmark, and its rotunda is a designated interior landmark as well.

When traveling African-American handyman Homer Smith stops by a farm in rural Arizona, he is welcomed by a group of Roman Catholic nuns who have emigrated from Germany. Realizing that the farm needs a lot of work, Homer takes on a number of repair projects for the women, who are led by the headstrong Mother Maria. Impressed by Homer's kindness and strong work ethic, the nuns come to believe that he has been sent by God to help build them a chapel. Director: Ralph Nelson Cast: Sidney Poitier, Lilia Skala, Stanley Adams Sidney Poitier was a Bahamian and American actor, film director, and diplomat.
