Book Discussion | Jozef Pilsudski: Founding Father of Modern Poland (in-person and online)


Joseph Zimmerman's new biography is the story of the enigmatic Jozef Pilsudski, the founding father of modern Poland: a brilliant military leader and high-minded statesman who championed the independence of Ukraine and secretly proposed to France in 1933 a joint preventative war to remove Hitler from power. Pilsudski was a complicated figure. Passionately devoted to the idea of democracy, he ceded power on constitutional terms, only to retake it a few years later in a coup when he believed his opponents aimed to dismantle the democratic system.

Classical Music | The English Guittar of the 18th Century in Duet, Song, and Chamber Music (in-person and online)


The English guittar was wildly popular in Georgian England. Its popularity spread throughout the British Empire and into the United States. Its brilliant flowering was brief, however, disappearing by 1800. Rather than a proper guitar, it was a 6-string instrument strung with brass. The leading composers of Georgian England all offered music for the guittar: Geminiani, J.C. Bach, R. Straube, and James Oswald. This concert offers a survey of some of this delightful and rare chamber music: Scottish and English duets and songs and Italian arias. Performed by Mr. Jones & the Engines of Destruction: Daniel Swenberg ~ English guittar & archlute; Andrew Rutherford ~ English guittar; Leah Nelson ~ violin; Marcia Young ~ soprano In 1605 famed English architect Inigo Jones brought the newly-developed theorbo from Italy into England. At Dover, customs impounded the instrument fearing it was some engine from the popish lands brought to destroy the king. This group emphasizes fun, lascivious, nerdy, and dramatic programs and features rarely heard ensembles for lutes, theorbos, and guitars.

Book Discussion | The Battle Nearer to Home: The Persistence of School Segregation in New York (in-person and online)


Despite its image as an epicenter of progressive social policy, New York City continues to have one of the nation's most segregated school systems. Tracing the quest for integration in education from the mid-1950s to the present, Christopher Bonastia's book follows the tireless efforts by educational activists to dismantle the deep racial and socioeconomic inequalities that segregation reinforces. The fight for integration has shifted significantly over time, not least in terms of the way "integration" is conceived, from transfers of students and redrawing school attendance zones, to more recent demands of community control of segregated schools. In all cases, the Board eventually pulled the plug in the face of resistance from more powerful stakeholders, and, starting in the 1970s, integration receded as a possible solution to educational inequality. In excavating the history of New York City school integration politics, in the halls of power and on the ground, Christopher Bonastia unearths the enduring white resistance to integration and the severe costs paid by Black and Latino students. This last decade has seen activists renew the fight for integration, but the war is still far from won.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Hypermnesia / Strange Magic


At the heart of Luis Edgar Mejicanos’ narrative-driven works is a fascination with painting and its potent ability to convey and elicit emotion. Grief is frequently at the forefront, partly due to the artist’s experience with loss in his own life, which he processes by casting himself as well as members of his family into hypothetical, dream-like vignettes. Hypermnesia, or as the philosopher Paolo Virno describes, “an increasing mnestic capacity following a crisis,” underscores his painterly approach, which begins in a haze of memory and fictive imagination, and gradually focuses or even factualizes alongside each meticulously rendered detail. Hypermnesia brings together a recent group of paintings that collectively play with the notion of the gaze, whether through the frame of surveilling devices such as camcorders and hearing aids that heighten one’s perception, or from the standpoint of actors, portrayed or otherwise, who observe each other from across the room. Part innate sensibility, part acquired skill – strange magic is one way to describe the extraordinary power wielded to achieve countless feats of parenting. Like gifted magicians, parents often assume the role of entertainer, charming their infant audiences through tactics of surprise and diversion, all the while ensuring an environment of safety and amusement. It is within this theatrical framework that Madeline Donahue explores the performative arcs of motherhood, from its embarrassing flops to its resounding joys. In Strange Magic, Donahue presents paintings, drawings, and ceramics that portray scenes at home over the course of a seemingly ordinary day; yet circumstances can turn at any moment.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Rising Curtain / reminiscent of  


Rising Curtain: Digital Paintings and Aquatints is an exhibition of 35 works by Chalda Maloff. In a world where the course of our existence is increasingly uncertain, general anxiety has intensified to an epoch-defining constant. To counter this collective sentiment, Maloff presents Rising Curtain as an affirmative celebration of each exquisite moment in time. In reminiscent of, Anne Mondro reflects on how time spent in nature inspires personal discoveries and intellectual curiosity, while serving as a positive distraction from recent experiences with grief and sadness. Drawing on these insights, she creates intricate organic sculptures reminiscent of flora and human anatomy. Mondro employs the methodical process of crocheting to fabricate the work.

Opening Reception | 3 Art Openings: Ecce Homo / Pain Relief Drawings / We Rule


Ecce Homo: The Drawings of General Idea Founded in Toronto in 1969 by AA Bronson, Felix Partz, and Jorge Zontal, General Idea is recognized today as a key participant in the Conceptual Art scene of the 1970s and 1980s. From their early staged beauty pageants, boutiques, and talk shows to their later material output in the form of postcards, prints, posters, magazines, and wallpaper, General Idea enthusiastically embraced commercial forms and explored multimedia, conceptual, and performance work as a tool for engaging with popular culture and its repressions. Ibrahim El-Salahi: Pain Relief Drawings Born in 1930 in Omdurman, Sudan, Ibrahim El-Salahi has been a prolific, innovative, and highly influential international voice in the contemporary art discourse for more than sixty years. Featuring 122 drawings from the artist’s most recent series, This show will mark the first museum presentation of El-Salahi’s drawings in the United States. Drafted on the back of medicine packets, pill bottle labels, envelopes, and scraps of paper, the task of creating this intricate pen and ink series serves as a form of respite for the ninety-two-year-old artist, who finds diversion from his chronic pain through his daily drawing practice. Catherine Chalmers: We Rule Working at the intersection of art and science, New York-based artist Catherine Chalmers has built a multidisciplinary practice that celebrates nature and confronts humans’ often adversarial relationship with the earth. For her exhibition, Chalmers presents recent work alongside two site-specific installations inspired by her observation of and engagement with colonies of leafcutter ants on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica.

Book Discussion | The Return of Cultural Heritage in Latin America: Nationalism, Policy and Politics in Colombia, Mexico and Peru


Pierre Losson's book looks at recent case studies that have made headlines in the media: Colombia's claims for the "Quimbaya Treasure" and funerary statues from San Agustin; Mexico's attempts at recovering the famous "penacho de Moctezuma" and Teotihuacan murals; and Peru's successful claims for the Machu Picchu collection held at Yale and Paracas textiles held in Sweden. The author analyses how return claims contribute to the strengthening of state-sponsored discourses on the nation; the policy formation process that leads to the formulation of return claims; and who the main actors of the claims are, including civil society individuals, experts, state authorities, and Indigenous communities. The book proposes explanations for why Latin American countries are interested in these artefacts held in Western museums and why these claims have come to light over the past three decades.

Opening Reception | William Patterson: The Magician’s Breakfast


In this body of new work, Patterson combines ancient narratives and modern references touching on a variety of themes such as the “biblical garden” and “original sin,” King Arthur: Tales of the Round Table, recent movies and domestic interiors. The characters and suggested narratives painted create poetic, contemplative images both humorous and poignant. Patterson channels the familiar into symbols, and the lessons of his artist heroes—from late Gothic painting to contemporary masters—provide the formal foundation of his compositions. A viridian green patch both harmonizes with and simultaneously repels the coral shape it is butted against; his juggling act with shapes and colors and obvious delight in formal mastery makes these works of compelling interest.

Lecture | The Natural and Built Environments of the U.S.-Mexico Border (in-person and online)


The political divide that separates the United States from Mexico passes through six different ecological regions. Each one of these “ecoregions” has a distinctive climate, specific configurations of plants and animals, and unique topography. The political border does not conform in any meaningful way to these environmental boundaries. The political divide does, however, commandeer two rivers -- the Colorado and the Rio Grande -- and for part of their lengths demands that they adhere to the predictability and fixity required of modern political borders. In his book Border Land, Border Water: A History of Construction on the U.S.-Mexico Divide, CJ Alvarez explains the border as a history of accretion, an ever-more complicated system of barrier infrastructure on land and hydraulic engineering projects on the rivers. Today, the environmental unity of border regions has been eclipsed by the built environment which has, in turn, impoverished our imaginations. But his current research and book project go beyond the built environment, deeper into time and further into the realms of the nonhuman world. This talk is about the relationship of political borders and environmental boundaries, the contrast between contemporary political developments and the multimillennial history of environmental regions and rivers, and the tension between anthropocentrism and ecocentrism.

Discussion | What's Prison For?: A Conversation with Bill Keller, Former Executive Editor of The New York Times (online)


America's prison system doesn't exactly have a reputation for empathy—but could that change? Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Bill Keller has spent years examining what is possible if prisons focus on preparing the incarcerated to be good citizens when they return to society, which the overwhelming majority will. In his new book, he shows us how we can reform our prisons and why there’s a reason for cautious optimism. Rehabilitation, he argues, is not only an investment in public safety but a moral imperative. This is a live conversation with Bill Keller, founding editor of The Marshall Project, former executive editor of The New York Times, and author of What’s Prison For? Punishment and Rehabilitation in the Age of Mass Incarceration. Moderator Jason D. Williamson, executive director of the Center on Race, Inequality and the Law at NYU School of Law, will guide the discussion on the complexity of the criminal justice system and explore Keller’s hope for more just and empathetic prisons.

Opening Reception | Sasha Maslov: Scorched Earth, Broken Lives


This exhibit is a record of the sacrifice Ukrainians are making and the devastating effect the war has brought to the lives of Ukrainian communities all over the country. War doesn’t knock on your door asking if it can come in. It doesn’t warn you what will happen to your life, your family, your community, your town, or your country. It won’t tell you what your future will look like. It destroys everything; it takes everything away from you without warning. It gives you one thing in return: the chance to fight back. Ukrainians chose to fight back. Since February 24, 2022, millions of people in Ukraine have resisted Russia’s invasion of their country. Some streamed toward new front lines that stretched hundreds of kilometers on sea, land, and air. Some have chosen to dedicate their skills, whatever they might be, to help the country resist. Sasha Maslov is a Ukrainian-American portrait photographer and storyteller based in New York City. His work has been exhibited in various photo galleries and art spaces around Europe and the United States. Sasha, a regular contributor to a number of magazines and leading publications in New York and around the globe, is actively pursuing the development of his documentary projects.

Discussion | Re-enchanting the World: An Exhibition Discussion


Titled Re-enchanting the World, the Polish pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale is a manifesto on Roma identity and culture. Showcasing work by Małgorzata Mirga-Tas, the first Roma artist to ever be shown in a national pavilion, the exhibition draws inspiration from the Renaissance frescoes of the Palazzo Schifanoia in Ferrara, Italy to reinscribe a Roma perspective into art historical discourse. Through the patchwork tapestries that make up the show, the artist carries out—both physically and metaphorically—the work of repair, the craft of narrative, and the experience of Aby Warburg’s nachleben, or life after life of images. In this program, pavilion co-curator Joanna Warsza is joined by Ana Janevski, Curator, Department of Media and Performance, Museum of Modern Art, to discuss the concept of re-enchanting the world as realized in the Polish pavilion. The conversation examines the themes of interdependence, transnationality, and cyclicality that informed both Mirga-Tas’s exhibition and the curatorial process of bringing it to Venice. Warsza also offers a glimpse into her upcoming show and publication,

Lecture | Strangers in a Strange Land: Displacement, Sanctuary, and the Traveling Tale


Edward W. Said wrote that he habitually felt “out of place” and in his memoir movingly explores the strategies and theoretical ideas the experience inspired. Marina Warner will return to Said's ideas about estrangement, the traveling tale and contrapuntal reading, through a reading of the Flight into Egypt. The legend spread through stories, cult, and pilgrimage and Memories of Mary/Mariam in Egypt live on in some form in both the Christian and Islamic traditions. In a time of ever greater displacements and tumult, this narrative offers a test case of storytelling's role in living through exile and dislocation, and surviving somewhere that is not home. Marina Warner is a writer of fiction, cultural history, and criticism. Her study of the Arabian Nights, Stranger Magic (2011) won a National Book Critics Circle Award, the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism and a Sheikh Zayed Book Award; in 2015, she received the Holberg Prize in the Arts and Humanities. She contributes regularly to the London Review of Books, Raritan, and the New York Review of Books, and is Professor of English and Creative Writing at Birkbeck College and a Distinguished Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. Recent books include Once Upon a Time: A Short History of Fairy Tale and Forms of Enchantment: Writings on Art and Artists. Inventory of a Life Mislaid: An Unreliable Memoir, about her childhood in Cairo, appeared in the US earlier this year under the title Esmond and Ilia (NYRB). She is working on a study of the concept of Sanctuary.

Book Discussion | Anna-Sophie Berger: life and limbs


The gallery becomes a mouth. It has four pointy teeth and is an aged, even sickly, shade of off-white. The teeth are walls, and on them hang artworks selected by Austrian artist Anna-Sophie Berger for the exhibition, Swiss Institute’s fourth installment of its Architecture and Design Series. Berger’s premise for the show considers the body an experimental testing ground for design, a living site that is both vulnerable and resilient. As the title implies, life and limbs exists in a world where the human body, unadorned, is at risk and often confronts threat with dark and knowing humor but also with grace. Across these works, which draw from speculative architectures, Surrealism, late twentieth-century fashion design, and Viennese Actionism, among many other subsects of modern visual culture, Berger’s singular understanding of corporeal awareness unfolds. In the clutches of this jaw, bodies find ways to disappear, though some stretch, reach, and metamorphosize in attempts to escape themselves. This book is a means to further explore Berger’s thesis. Three remarkable essays, by Annie Godfrey Larmon, Philipp Ekardt and Berger herself, ponder the works that populate this wunderkammer and question design’s transformative potential.

Film | Pierre Rabhi: In the Name of the Earth (2013): Documentary on Environmental Activist


Pierre Rabhi was a farmer, writer, thinker, and international activist. He was one of the pioneers of agroecology in France. Passionate and committed for forty years to improving the condition of humankind and nature, he worked throughout his life to raise awareness about the natural world and about alternative approaches to farming, and envisioned a new model of society where a more healthy and "happy simplicity" would replace overconsumption, human destruction of the natural world, and the malaise of contemporary life. This documentary retraces the itinerary of this “wise man,” from the Algerian desert where he was born in 1938, to Ardeche, France, where he and his wife bought land and raised a family while teaching themselves how to tend the land organically, to helping communities learn organic farming practices, including several years spent working in Burkina Faso. This is the inspiring life story of a man of deep reflection and action “on behalf of the earth.” Directed by Marie-Dominique Dhelsing 98 min. In French with English subtitles

Classical Music | An intimate performance of works by Beethoven from an award-winning string quartet


The Pelia String Quartet performs Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor, Opus 132. Composed in 1825 while Beethoven was convalescing from an agonizing intestinal disease that nearly killed him, the five movements of String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor are considered to be some of Beethoven's most powerful. In an offer of thanks for surviving his close brush with death, Beethoven titled the quartet's third movement "Heiliger Dankgesang eines Genesenen an die Gottheit, in der lydischen Tonart" or "Song of Thanksgiving to the Deity from a convalescent in the Lydian mode." The "Heiliger Dankgesang" consists of slow sections interspersed with fast ones, mirroring the tenuous line between life and death, suffering and relief, illustrating by way of music the ebb and flow of painful memories in the body of a survivor. Heejeon Ahn, violin Delphine Skene, violin Sung Jin Lee, viola Nathan Cottrell, cello The Pelia String Quartet was formed through the Emerson String Quartet Institute at Stony Brook University in 2019. They participated and received a special prize in the 2021 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, a Bronze medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and were winners of the Ackerman Chamber Music Competition. The Quartet has appeared at the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, La Jolla SummerFest and Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland.

Discussion | Trust in Science (online)


The panel conversation focuses on higher education science pedagogy and how different approaches to teaching science have the potential to instill/foster trust in the scientific process. A college science class may be one of the last times many students who are not planning to pursue careers in STEM-related fields will participate in organized science education. Yet, this does not mean they never have to interact with science again. The panelists will discuss how to promote scientific literacy in higher education to provide students with the tools to make evidence-based decisions about the health and environmental issues they will face outside of the classroom in the communities in which they live and work.

Book Discussion | The Hundred Waters: A New Novel from Pulitzer Winner Michael Cunningham


Formerly a model and photographer trying to make it in New York, Louisa Rader is back in her affluent hometown of Nearwater, Connecticut, where she’s married to a successful older architect, raising a preteen daughter, and trying to vitalize the provincial local art center. As the years pass, she’s grown restless in her safe and comfortable routine, haunted by the flash of the life she used to live. When intense and intriguing young artist-environmentalist Gabriel arrives in town with his aristocratic family, his impact on the Raders has hothouse effects. As Gabriel pushes to realize his artistic vision for the world, he pulls both Louisa and her daughter Sylvie under his spell, with consequences that disrupt the Raders’ world forever. A strange, sexy, and sinister novel of art and obsession, in The Hundred Waters Acampora gives us an incisive, page-turning story of ambition, despair, desire, and the pursuit of fulfillment and freedom at all costs.

In this definitive biography, the first full-scale life of Dunbar in half a century, Gene Andrew Jarrett offers a revelatory account of a writer whose Gilded Age celebrity as the "poet laureate of his race" hid the private struggles of a man who, in the words of his famous poem, felt like a "caged bird" that sings.

Lecture | An Invincible Beast: Understanding the Hellenistic Pike Phalanx in Action (online)


With: Professor Christopher Matthew, Lecturer in Ancient History, Australian Catholic University. The Hellenistic pike-phalanx was a true military innovation, transforming the face of warfare in the ancient world. For nearly 200 years, from the rise of the Macedonians as a military power in the mid-fourth century BC, to their defeat at the hands of the Romans at Pydna in 168BC, the pike-wielding heavy infantryman (the phalangite) formed the basis of nearly every Hellenistic army to deploy on battlefields stretching from Italy to India. And yet, despite this dominance, and the vast literature dedicated to detailing the history of the Hellenistic world, there remains fierce debate among modern scholars about how infantry combat in this age was actually conducted. Christopher Matthews critically examines phalanx combat by using techniques such as physical re-creation, experimental archaeology, and ballistics testing, and then comparing the findings of this testing to the ancient literary, artistic and archaeological evidence, as well as modern theories. The result is the most comprehensive and up-to-date study of what heavy infantry combat was like in the age of Alexander the Great and his successors.

Discussion | In Situ: Places (and Material) with a Past


During a time of transition, when the National Academy is between exhibition spaces for the first time in many decades, organizing shows has required creativity and collaboration with other organizations and venues. Questions of sustainability, ephemerality, reuse, and regeneration become more prominent, as reflected in our Governors Island exhibition, Materia/Material. This is a conversation about what it means to make work in a historic site, to create works of art with materials that carry their own histories of reuse, and how the curatorial process is shaped by these conditions, with architect Stephanie Lin; artist Jim Osman; Klaudia Ofwona Draber, Founder and President, KODA; and Tara Sansone, Executive Director, Materials for the Arts, Klaudia Ofwona Draber, Founder and President, KODA and moderated by Sara Reisman, National Academy of Design Chief Curator/Director.

Concert | A Tribute to Pianist/Composer Robert Casadesus


Black Oak Ensemble and pianist Wenting Yu play a tribute to the life of pianist and composer Robert Casadesus. Robert Casadesus (1899-1972), the renowned French concert pianist, was also a prolific composer. Student of harmony and composition at the Paris Conservatory, Casadesus pursued composition throughout his performing career. Yet, it is an enigma that Casadesus did not promote his own compositions in public until the 1940s. Thus, his music is rarely performed today. In quality, these works stand alongside pieces by Poulenc, Prokofiev, Copland, and their contemporaries. His oeuvre provides another window to the mid-twentieth century musical time period. This outstanding pianist left not only a legacy in performance, recording, and pedagogy, but also sixty-eight original works, including seven symphonies, three concerti for solo piano, one concerto for two pianos, one concerto for three pianos, and a large body of duo sonatas and chamber music. Casadesus wrote expressively, revealing a keen understanding of the physical demands and enormous color possibilities of each instrument.

Lecture | Models as Ethical Agents (in-person and online)


The claim argued in this lecture is that a model is an agent, like a chemical agent, that has effects on proximate things in the world. Because those effects can be good or bad, a model's ethical behavior, like that of a human, should always be subject to judgment. The case is made on the basis of an investigation of model prisons. A discussion following the lecture will be moderated by Sylvia Lavin. This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Model Behavior. Speaker Annabel Jane Wharton, William B. Hamilton Professor of Art History, Duke University, received her Ph.D. at the Courtauld Institute, London University.

Lecture | The Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative (online)


In June 2021, Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland announced the Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative, a comprehensive effort to recognize the troubled legacy of federal Indian boarding school policies, with the goal of addressing their intergenerational impact and to shed light on the traumas of the past. The federal Indian boarding school policies introduced a new architecture and program to American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities in the 19th and 20th centuries. In this program, Joaquin Gallegos, Special Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs at the US Department of Interior, will summarize the findings of this extensive and first-ever inventory of federally operated Indian boarding schools.

Lecture | When Government is Opaque: Empire State Development and the Penn Station Redevelopment Project (in-person and online)


A lecture by Elizabeth M. Marcello, a Senior Research Analyst at Reinvent Albany, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that advocates for transparent and accountable New York State government. At Reinvent Albany, Mercello advocates for laws that curb business subsidies, improve open data and the Freedom of Information Law, and implement anti-corruption reforms. Her academic research focuses on city-state relations, economic development, and governance. Transparency and accountability are basic tenets of democracy. Public planners extol the open manner in which plans are developed and implemented; the government provides information, the public is consulted, and plans change and adapt based on public input. This, of course, does not always happen. When carried out by public authorities, plans are not subject to the same disclosure and accountability rules as when carried out by typical governmental agencies. Public authorities are a type of special purpose government that can supplement routine government functions by building infrastructure, maintaining bridges, building stadiums and convention centers, managing public housing, and running mass transit systems. These entities were created during the Progressive Era to isolate planning from politics and allow planning expertise to flourish, but does their use help or hurt democratic planning efforts? Using the ongoing case of the New York Empire State Development Corporation’s Penn Station Redevelopment project in Manhattan, Marcello shows how public authorities operate outside of legislative politics and move projects quickly from concept to completion. Potential reforms are offered as solutions to the many challenges that public authorities pose to democratic planning efforts.

Poetry Reading | Power through Poetry: Voices to End Hunger (online)


Over 800 million people globally live in food insecurity, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, despite the fact that sufficient food is produced to "feed the world." Food insecurity is the result of a combination of factors, including political instability and policy decisions, war, climate change and, recently, the Covid-19 pandemic. While food insecurity, or hunger, tends to be concentrated in global regions with relatively less political and economic power, people and communities in wealthy and more powerful regions also experience these realities. This event will showcase powerful poems by 5-10 poets from New York City and beyond as they demonstrate the role that poetry is playing in speaking back to hunger. We’ll also hear from several food systems and social justice leaders who will briefly share insights about the heart-grabbing and mind-changing difference that poetry plays – or could play – in their efforts. The poems and commentaries will be followed by Q&A among the audience and panelists. Attendees will leave the event having heard, seen and felt – having learned – how poetry can contribute to strategies to fight hunger and food insecurity.

Lecture | Environmental Threats to Continuity: Colonialism, Climate Migration and the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (online)


Lauren Grant's lecture situates the current crisis of climate migration within the genealogies of coloniality and historicizes the making of the climate crisis, as it is tied to colonialism, dispossession, displacement, expropriation and the never-ending quest for capital by Euro-American colonial powers. Lauren Grant spearheads geographical and thematic research and reporting on climate migration at Earth Refuge. She develops connections and partnerships with research practitioners, institutes and projects that contribute to Earth Refuge’s reports and other research. Lauren represents the up and coming generation of advocates and researchers in the fields of climate migration, women’s, Indigenous and minority rights, violence, conflict, genocide and development.

Discussion | Out in Politics (in-person and online)


In the 2020 election, more openly LGBTQ people ran for elected office than ever before in the history of the country. According to the Victory Fund, a national organization dedicated to electing LGBTQ leaders, the election included 1,006 openly LGBTQ candidates. Alongside this history-making surge in LGBTQ representation has come a spike across the nation in anti-LGBTQ legislation, according to advocates. This has included Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law and other laws targeting access to gender-affirming care. Bringing together openly LGBTQ people who have run, are running, or already serving in elected or appointed office in New York, as well as leading advocates and experts, this conversation will examine the challenges and opportunities that come with being “out”—both on the campaign trail and in office—amid heightened discrimination and violence toward the LGBTQ community.

Book Discussion | The Betrothed: A Modern Italian Classic


The timeless masterpiece from Alessandro Manzoni, the father of modern Italian literature, in the first new English-language translation in fifty years, hailed as "a landmark literary occasion" by Jhumpa Lahiri in her preface to the edition. The Betrothed is a cornerstone of Italian culture, language, and literature. Published in its final form in 1842, the novel has inspired generations of Italian readers and writers. Giuseppe Verdi composed his majestic Requiem Mass in honor of Manzoni. Italo Calvino called the novel "a classic that has never ceased shaping reality in Italy" while Umberto Eco praised its author as a "most subtle critic and analyst of languages." The Betrothed has been celebrated by Primo Levi and Natalia Ginzburg, and is one of Pope Francis's favorite books. But, until now, it has remained relatively unknown to English readers. In the fall of 1628, two young lovers are forced to flee their village on the shores of Lake Como after a powerful lord prevents their marriage, plunging them into the maelstrom of history. Manzoni draws on actual people and events to create an unforgettable fresco of Italian life and society. In this greatest of historical novels, he takes the reader on a journey through the Spanish occupation of Milan, the ravages of war, class tensions, social injustice, religious faith, and a plague that devastates northern Italy. But within Manzoni's epic tale, readers will also hear powerful echoes of our own day.

Discussion | Critical Lens: How a Jobs Program Put New York Artists to Work (in-person and online)


A panel discussion spotlighting the Municipal Archives' CETA Artists Project collection, as well as the history and significance of the federal Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) jobs program (1973-1981). CETA employed over 10,000 artists and cultural workers across the nation, and funded artist projects for 600 NYC visual artists, poets, dancers, performers, and photographers, among many other specialists in connection with New York area schools, libraries, museums, nursing homes, prisons, and more. Learn about this often forgotten yet critical history and hear City Lore, Artists Alliance Inc., and Cultural Council Foundation CETA alumni - including members of the Documentation Unit - discuss CETA's legacy. Discover how CETA's employment of artists serves as a precedent for envisioning how we can create sustained investment in artists today, permanently infusing the creativity and resourcefulness of artists into our workforce.

Lecture | Two Views of Universal Suffrage: Anticolonial and Neoliberal


In this event, Kevin Duong will reconstruct the terror early neoliberal thinkers experienced in the face of the tremendous suffrage expansions sweeping the British and French empires after the 1940s. He argues that such terrors incited neoliberals to an alternative theory of universal suffrage. Against “one person, one vote” which would empower enfranchised majorities to restructure national economies in the name of postcolonial socialist planning, neoliberals offered their own economized alternative: “every penny represents a ballot.” In this neoliberal vision of universal suffrage, the enfranchised citizen better expressed their voice, not at the ballot box, but through the consumption of services and goods. Two unexpected results emerged. The first involved a deeper mutation in democratic theory. Where universal suffrage was once expected to enunciate the political "voice of the people,” by the 1960s and 1970s universal suffrage became increasingly understood in non-sovereign market terms: as an information processing system capable of aggregating and coordinating individual preferences without a dangerous “voice of the people” emerging. The second unexpected result followed: African economic developmentalism, because democratically authorized by a mass political franchise, became the bête noire of Cold War liberal anxieties about “totalitarian” popular sovereignty.

This work is part of the emotional reckoning we must navigate if racial healing is to be more than a dream. We all—white, Black, Brown—have our emotional work that we need to do. But that work is not the same for all of us.

Discussion | Struggles Over the Narcotic City: Histories of Drug-Policing Since the 70s


On both sides of the Atlantic, drug use is a highly contested issue in urban public space. During this roundtable, participants will discuss and analyze the medical, political, and spatial aspects of governing intoxicating substances in New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, and beyond. How have conflicts around public drug use impacted the social and cultural fabric of cities in the late 20th and early 21st centuries? How are urban policies intertwined with addiction treatment and police interventions of contested sites? For this roundtable, they will bring together experts from the US and Europe, to explore the ways in which particular user groups (such as ethnic minorities) have been targeted or treated differently, and assess the impact of drug policy strategies on the wellbeing of users. Are there noticeable differences or similarities between US and European strategies and approaches? Furthermore, what kind of opposition and activism have they generated? How does the governance of drug use play into forms of urban exclusion, marginalization, and integration - particularly in relation to issues of gender, class, race, and disability? Roundtable with inputs by Gemma Blok (Open University, Netherlands), Samuel K. Roberts (Columbia University, New York), Matthew Vaz (CUNY, New York), Frederieke Westerheide (Halle University Halle). Moderation: Stefan Hohne (KWI Essen). The roundtable format will allow the audience and panelists to exchange ideas and experiences in an informal setting - sitting around a large table.

In Ousmane K. Power-Greene's thought-provoking and suspenseful tale, Allegra Douglass is finally ready to tell her version of what happened with a white supremacist named Matthew Strong. From the beginning, Allie had the clues—found in possibly-connected disappearances of other young Black women; in a series of recently restored plantation homes; in letters outlining an uprising; in maps of slave trade routes and old estates; in hidden caves and buried tunnels; in a confessional that should never have existed—and then Allie herself disappears.

Concert | Voice of Crumb Part 1 (In Person AND Online)


The "expert and versatile musicians" (The New Yorker) of NOVUS NY celebrate George Crumb in two concerts titled Voice of Crumb. In Part 1, Crumb's works are paired with Crumb's pupil, Jennifer Higdon. Program George Crumb (1929 - 2022) Vox Balanae, Four Nocturnes Jennifer Higdon (1962 - ), Little River Songs Conor Hanick, piano Katie Hyun, violin Melissa Baker, flute George Crumb was an American composer of avant-garde contemporary classical music. Crumb's compositions are known for pushing the limits of technical prowess by way of frequent use of extended techniques. The unusual timbres he employs evoke a surrealist atmosphere which portray emotions of considerable intensity with vast and sometimes haunting soundscapes. His few large-scale works include Echoes of Time and the River (1967), which won the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Music, and Star-Child (1977), which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Classical Composition; however, his output consists of mostly music for chamber ensembles or solo instrumentalists.

Poetry Reading | American Primitive: Mary Oliver's Pulitzer Prize Winning Poetry


Join a discussion of Mary Oliver's Pulitzer Prize winning collection of poetry, American Primitive (1983). Mary Oliver (1935 - 2019) was an American poet who won the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Her work is inspired by nature, rather than the human world, stemming from her lifelong passion for solitary walks in the wild. It is characterised by a sincere wonderment at the impact of natural imagery, conveyed in unadorned language. In 2007, she was declared to be the country's best-selling poet.

Discussion | Great Expectations: Films as Cultural Mediators Between East Germany and the U.S.


A conversation between the independent film curator Tobias Hering and Mariana Ivanova, Academic Director of the DEFA Film Library. The first larger showcase of films from East Germany in the U.S.A. took place only after diplomatic relations had officially been established between the two countries in 1974. Yet various forms of film relations had already existed since the 1950s, on a personal as well as on an institutional level. Such relations fed on the motivation and perseverance of individuals on both sides of the Iron Curtain and required finesse and mettle in skirting the demarcations of official politics. In this conversation, Mariana Ivanova and Tobias Hering will discuss their ongoing study of the GDR's international film relations. What made West German film producers Erich Mehl and Manfred Durniok, German-Jewish emigre Marta Feuchtwanger, American film historian Jay Leyda, or renegade filmmaker Emile de Antonio turn against the odds of Cold War politics and become what could be called cultural mediators?

A post-screening discussion features director Sean Claffey and people appearing in the film, including Chris Smalls and Derrick Palmer, labor organizers who led the unionization effort at Amazon in Staten Island; Janet Gornick, professor of political science and sociology and director of the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality; and others.

Discussion | Art, Resistance, and New Narratives in Response to the War in Ukraine


In this evening of presentations and conversations, artists, researchers, and curators will delve deeply into artistic responses to the war in Ukraine, looking at the period between the Maidan revolution—which was followed by the annexation of Crimea and the occupation of Donbas in 2014—and the full-scale Russian invasion launched on February 24, 2022. Artists in Ukraine have long been reacting to the war. However, their voices seem only to have been amplified when the recent, brutal invasion started. Art created during the past eight years, and these very recent reactions, are already creating a future archive of the present that both documents the atrocities and proposes new narratives of art history.

Nestled in this wild dream of a narrative are several love stories: two men of different countries and races who find comfort in each other; a man and a woman who spark each other’s lust through intellectual play; a woman and a boy who are the only survivors of their history; a man and the daughter he will never know. Rothman-Zecher explores the impossibility of escaping trauma, the necessity of believing in a better way ahead, and the power that comes from our responsibility to the future.

Composer Jay Hoggard’s music has touched the hearts and souls of listeners around Planet Earth for 40 years. Jay Hoggard has long ranked with the greatest vibraphone innovators. Jay’s music is positive, spiritual, uplifting, and happy. He masterfully draws on traditional and contemporary musical vocabulary to develop new directions for the vibraphone.

He toured Europe and played at Carnegie Hall during his freshman year. In his junior year, he traveled to Tanzania to study East African marimba music. Jay graduated from Wesleyan in 1976 and returned to New York City in 1977 to be proclaimed a young lion of the vibraphone. Jay Hoggard has recorded 22 CD’s as a leader and over 50 as a collaborator.

Discussion | Politics of Gender in Work and Innovation in India and China (online)


Drawing on ethnographic research of design practices in post-liberalization India, Prof. Lilly Irani traces how designers target everyday acts of social reproduction as sites of intervention and valorization through design intervention. She makes the case with stories of water cooling, contrasting devalued water cooling practices characterized as jugaad or workaround with proper, branded products recognizable as innovation. Prof. Yige Dong draws on a case study of Zhengzhou, a city located in China’s heartland that has transformed from a major textile mill town in the socialist period to the world largest iPhone manufacturing center in the last decade. Extending the analytical focus from the factory shop floor to the space of social reproduction, this talk discusses how dynamics in the realm of gender and care work has constituted the processes of political economy and shaped the outcomes of China’s industrial development.

Lecture | Yesterday's Tomorrows: Identity and Space Technology in Post-Soviet Societies (online)


When considering the Russian aggression against Ukraine and expansion into its territory, the space legacy of the Soviet Union in Eurasia may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, Nelly Bekus has argued that for states like Kazakhstan the ability to adopt and adapt the technical achievements and artifacts of that era have been an important means of establishing new national identities in the wake of the USSR.  In this talk, Dr. Bekus will discuss her studies of the cultivation of post-Soviet identities as a form of post-coloniality and the role that technoscientific enterprises like space exploration and travel have played in those efforts. She will also consider the impact of the expansionist actions of Russia, its expressed intentions to withdraw from established international relations involving space, and how those affect the geopolitics and identities of post-Soviet nations which have invested in using space for political purposes.

Ava Chin will address the challenges faced in writing her forthcoming memoir – challenges which included the impact of the Chinese Exclusion laws on four generations of her family in NYC’s Chinatown, and the task of how to thread a narrative together where the historical scope includes many eras and generations. How does one write a nonfiction book when the official record is a kind of fiction, heavily biased against one's subjects, or simply nonexistent due to negligence, discrimination, or a combination of both? How does the author weave nearly five decades of research into a single narrative? What are the criteria for inclusions and exclusions?

Lecture | A Politics of Radical Care: Writing Women into the History of the Egyptian Human Rights Movement (in-person and online)


Human Rights are a key theme in international history and international law, with the Arab world being studied mostly in relation to the trajectories that led the postcolonial states to ratify the major HR international conventions, and to the global growth of the human rights movements in the 1980s and the 1990s. In the mainstream literature, Arab women are either absent or represented as violated and vulnerable subjects, individuals in need of protection and “international solidarity”. Even the history of the human rights movements across the Arab world is written along male-centred genealogies, and women’s voices tend to be silenced. This talk argues for the importance of writing a women’s history of the human rights movement in Egypt, showing that woman political activists were not only closely working with men to build the movement, but they were also bringing a specific feminist theoretical contribution to it. Speaker Lucia Sorbera is Senior Lecturer and Chair of the Department of Arabic Language and Cultures at the University of Sydney, which is built on land stolen from the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

Book Discussion | Builders, Housewives and the Construction of Modern Athens (in-person and online)


To celebrate the third edition of Ioanna Theocharopoulou’s book, this is a wide-ranging discussion about the relevance of this modern city, its architecture, and ancient history. Architectural historians have tended to disparage the lack of formal planning and the apparent homogeneity of Athen’s “box-like” concrete buildings. By casting Athens as a uniquely local mode of informal urbanism, a phenomenon that, in a broader sense, is found around the world and particularly in the “developing” world, Theocharopoulou’s book offers a critical re-evaluation of the city as a successful adaptation to circumstance, enriching our understanding of urbanism as a truly collective design activity. Builders, Housewives and the Construction of Modern Athens advocates for an architectural history that allows access to the conceptual worlds and the imaginations of builders and inhabitants. This approach departs from a focus on structures designed exclusively by architects and planners, to explore processes—financial, cultural, and material—that rely on self-organization and community. These improvisations and adaptations, which succeeded in producing a dense and vibrant city, can, in turn, help us imagine how to create more sustainable and livable urban models today.

Opening Reception | Eric Aho: Threshold


In this new series of paintings, Eric Aho explores the various “threshold” spaces between water, earth, sky, and our own physical presence in the landscape. Developed over the past two years and drawn from the artist’s explorations of forests and wetlands, Aho reconstructs and reinvents his observations, composing a visual language of natural forms, feelings, and remembrances.  The borders where natural elements meet are disrupted by Aho’s intricate mark-making. Recognizable space is clarified towards the top of many of the paintings, where stark pine trees cut across open patches of sky. Moving towards the bottom of his canvases, closer to the artist’s vantage point, forms become fluid and colors grow more vivid, even fantastical. Critic Andrew Shea writes, “Aho allows the eye to wander, and his collection of smaller glimpses propose a teeming whole, accumulating and collapsing along with the precarious landscapes they depict.”

Screening | Iran #3037: Political Sexual Violence Under the Dictatorship 


Iran #3037 was a clandestine center of detention and torture under the brutal regime of General Augusto Pinochet. Referred to as The Sexy Blindfold (La Venda Sexy) or the Discotheque, it was known for sexual violation and abuse. Today it is a site of protest as activists call for the house to be transformed into a feminist memorial site. Iran #3037 powerfully dramatizes the situation of the family living in the house today and the struggle surrounding the site. The drama had a long run in Chile, playing in the National Theater of Chile as part of a “Theater in Emergency” cycle. While the play deals with the past, it hit a chord with the public as it seemed to dramatize the police violence surrounding the recent social uprising (estallido social) as well. This is the film's first screening in the United States. It will be followed by a conversation with the director, Patricia Artés Ibañez. The film is subtitled in English.

Lecture | Architectural History is Migrant History: Construction Labor and Cantera Stone in Mexico and the US (in-person and online)


This lecture tracks the development over the last fifty years of a binational construction industry that has emerged around the excavation (in Mexico), transportation, distribution, and installation (in the U.S.) of cantera stone. Cantera literally means “quarry,” but the Spanish word is used in Mexico to describe a specific brittle rock used to build colonial churches and civic infrastructure. More recently, a network of Mexican quarrymen, stonemasons, homebuilders, architects, and businessmen have refined a cantera market that caters to a Mexican and Mexican American clientele in the American Southwest. Speaker Sarah Lopez, a built environment historian and migration scholar, is an associate professor at the Stuart Weitzman School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania.

Discussion | In the Wilds of Brooklyn: 2 Cartoonists in Conversation (online)


A Newsweek article published in 1943 characterized the artist Morris Hirshfield as an old man who lived, “way out in… the Wilds of Brooklyn.” In this program, Ben Katchor and Roz Chast will take this primitivizing and elitist observation as a starting point to reflect on Hirshfield’s story as a Jewish European immigrant who worked his way up the trade to become a tailor, then a successful business-owner, and later a celebrated self-taught painter in New York City. A cartoonist at The New Yorker, Chast translates the mundane in semi-confessional “clunky” comics, confronting New Yorkers’ anxieties with both humor and compassion. In his signature black-and-white pen-and-wash drawings, the graphic-novelist Katchor revives bygone architecture, activities and characters to offer a historical, yet multidimensional, portrait of the city. Both natives of Brooklyn, these two extraordinary storytellers will take us into an exquisite journey where everyday urban experience is turned into insightful art. This program will chronicle for us moments, places and themes that compose New York City’s fabric and identity, while contributing to a better understanding of Hirshfield’s life and work as a Brooklyn-based Jewish artist.

Dance Performance | NYC DADA DO Performance Salon


Enjoy the second of two evenings of smashing, curious, and madcap performance and poetry by leading NYC maverick artists and writers. Join 23 artists as they put on a wild ride of contemporary dada performance and poetry. Costumes encouraged. Come as you aren't. Part II of this event takes place on Thursday, October 13th, at 6 pm. Dada was an art movement formed during World War I in Zurich in negative reaction to the horrors and folly of war. The art, poetry and performance produced by dada artists is often satirical and nonsensical in nature.

Author Reading | City of Refugees: The Story of Three Newcomers Who Breathed Life into a Dying American Town


Susan Hartman's intimate portrait of newcomers revitalizing a fading industrial town illuminates the larger canvas of refugee life in 21st century America. Many Americans imagine refugees as threatening outsiders who will steal jobs or be a drain on the economy. But across the country, refugees are rebuilding and maintaining the American Dream. Hartman shows how an influx of refugees helped revive Utica, New York, an old upstate manufacturing town that was nearly destroyed by depopulation and arson.

Book Discussion | Houses to Die In and Other Essays on Art


The undead of contemporary painting, avant-garde populism, photography courting stupidity, fraught networking, synthetic atmospheres, displaced abstractions, and the mediation of pain: these are among the subjects treated in this collection of essays by art historian and critic Ina Blom. Drawing on Blom's familiarity with the contemporary art scene as well as the archives of twentieth-century avant-garde art, these texts share a pull towards artistic projects that are not redemptive or exemplary but that rather convey a sense of—often unheroic—trouble. Leaning into ambivalence as a methodology of criticism, Blom takes a particular interest in the detours, doubts, and difficulties that run alongside avant-garde art’s more constructively hopeful desires for transformative innovation and change.

Book Discussion | Path Lit by Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe


Jim Thorpe rose to world fame as a mythic talent who excelled at every sport. He won gold medals in the decathlon and pentathlon at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, was an All-American football player at the Carlisle Indian School, the star of the first class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and played major league baseball for John McGraw’s New York Giants. Even in a golden age of sports celebrities, he was one of a kind. But despite his colossal skills, Thorpe’s life was a struggle against the odds. As a member of the Sac and Fox Nation, he encountered duplicitous authorities who turned away from him when their reputations were at risk. At Carlisle, he dealt with the racist assimilationist philosophy “Kill the Indian, Save the Man.” His gold medals were unfairly rescinded because he had played minor league baseball. His later life was troubled by alcohol, broken marriages, and financial distress. He roamed from state to state and took bit parts in Hollywood, but even the film of his own life failed to improve his fortunes. But for all his travails, Thorpe did not succumb. The man survived, complications and all, and so did the myth. Author David Maraniss is an associate editor at The Washington Post and a distinguished visiting professor at Vanderbilt University.

Poetry Reading | Whaddyacall the Wind?: Poetry of the Street


Annie Rachele Lanzillotto is a Bronx-born poet, performance artist, author, playwright, actor, director, songwriter, activist, cantastoria, whose stage presence has been called riveting and volcanic. Her work is inspired by the cacophonous opera of pushcart peddler street cries, the roots of theater in the agora, and the solo cantastoria in the piazza. She incorporates and puts metaphoric spins on iconic urban objects: the blue street corner mailbox, Spaldeens, the parking meter, traffic lights, block ice, casts of sewer caps.

Discussion | Intoxicating the Archive: Preserving Narcotic Heritage


This event critically explores how the memories and struggles of people who use drugs and those of other marginalized and/or activist groups in history are represented in archives, museums, and collective memory at large. While often being invisible at first, drug cultures have left traces in many archives and collections. However, finding and uncovering the often hidden history of drugs and the people who used them can be challenging. Whose memories are being recorded and whose voices are lost? Focusing on archival initiatives in the Netherlands, Germany, and the US, we discuss how archive-making and politics can help preserve the material and immaterial heritage of narcotic use and the conflicts of the people involved. How can these experiences of stigma, persecution, and activism be adequately preserved, prioritized, and remembered? How can archivists, historians, and community members participate in effective and useful ways to document local histories and build archival collections? In what ways can we create new historical sources by encouraging the use of oral history and digital storytelling?

Film | Antarctica: Ice and Sky (2015): Documentary on Climate Change


Tells the story of French glaciologist Claude Lorius, who found his life’s calling at age 23 on a scientific expedition to the Antarctic and became one of the first scientists to call attention to anthropogenic climate change. Antarctica: Ice and Sky is an epic tale, in which science and adventure meet. The film assembles decades of dramatic archival footage of the early days of scientific exploration in sub-zero temperatures in the polar regions, including Lorius’s pioneering work to develop an ice corer that would eventually extract ice cores thousands of meters below the frozen surface to look hundreds of thousands of years back into the history of the climate. One of Lorius’s most significant discoveries—made when he placed some ancient ice in celebratory glasses of whiskey—was that the ice contained air from the era in which it was formed.  Director: Luc Jacquet 89 min. In French with English subtitles

Book Discussion | The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million (in-person and online)


Fifteen years after the release of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the National Jewish Book Award winner, The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million is now being reissued. The updated book contains new material developed in conjunction with Ken Burns's new 3-part documentary, The U.S. and the Holocaust, which features Daniel Mendelsohn and the story of his family. The Lost is a modern classic of post-memory literature and a riveting exploration of the Holocaust by a descendent of its victims. Mendelsohn spent five years in a dozen countries on four continents with his brother Matt (an award-winning photojournalist whose photographs appear throughout the book) searching for an answer to the question he had first asked as a boy: What really happened to his great-uncle Shmiel and his family during the Holocaust? Spoken of only in hushed murmurs or incomprehensible Yiddish phrases, Mendelsohn later discovered a bundle of letters written by Shmiel in 1939 and vowed to solve this family puzzle.

Book Discussion | This Place | That Place: An Unnamed War (online)


Nandita Dinesh's book is a formally ambitious political and literary novel that centers on two unnamed characters from opposing sides of an unnamed war. During a wedding under curfew, a “Deprogrammer” and “Protest Designer” grapple with the ways in which the war between their homelands pervades the unexplored and undeniable attraction between them. Interwoven documents of past correspondences unpack the protagonists’ history, their admiration for the other's work, and how each sees hope — in the other, because of the other — for their respective Places.

Lecture | Politics of Gender in Work and Innovation in India and China (online)


Drawing on ethnographic research of design practices in post-liberalization India, Prof. Lilly Irani traces how designers target everyday acts of social reproduction as sites of intervention and valorization through design intervention. She makes the case with stories of water cooling, contrasting devalued water cooling practices characterized as jugaad or workaround with proper, branded products recognizable as innovation. These contrasting categories act as signposts to see how design practices proposed as participatory and inclusive can still reproduce class, caste, and gender hierarchies in contemporary India.
