Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Artist Matthew Porter presents a portfolio of twenty-five images of vintage cars, captured in midair as they careen over city streets and highway intersections. Each photograph is a freeze-frame—a hypothetical film still from a pulp-fiction chase scene. The photographs, known popularly as the “flying car” series, are a hybrid of hyperreality and studied, topographic description, part bittersweet nostalgia and part ironic reinvention of a classic American trope.

Book Club | Mrs. Osmond: A Continuation of Henry James


Author John Banville continues the story of Isabel Archer, the young protagonist of Henry James’s beloved The Portrait of a Lady. Eager but naïve, in James’s novel Isabel comes into a large, unforeseen inheritance and marries the charming, penniless, and—as Isabel finds out too late—cruel and deceitful Gilbert Osmond. Here Banville imagines Isabel’s second chapter telling the story of a woman reawakened by grief and the knowledge that she has been grievously wronged, and determined to resume her quest for freedom and independence.

Author Reading | The Agitator: William Bailey and the First American Uprising Against Nazism


This story of an anti-fascist’s dramatic and remarkable victory against Nazism in 1935 is an inspiration to anyone compelled to resist when signs of oppression are on the horizon. By 1935, Hitler had suppressed all internal opposition and established himself as Germany’s unchallenged dictator. Yet many Americans remained largely indifferent as he turned his dangerous ambitions abroad. Not William Bailey. Just days after violent anti-Semitic riots had broken out in Berlin, the SS Bremen, the flagship of Hitler’s commercial armada, was welcomed into New York Harbor. Bailey led a small group that slipped past security and cut down the Nazi flag from the boat in the middle of a lavish party. A brawl ensued, followed by a media circus and a trial, in which Bailey and his team were stunningly acquitted. The political victory ultimately exposed Hitler’s narcissism and violent aggression for all of America to see. With author Peter Duffy.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

The turn of the 17th century saw the dawn of the stylus fantasticus, an improvisatory and virtuosic style of composition that was especially suited to treble instruments like the violin. Many composers were fascinated with the musical colors and textures made possible by three violins playing together.

Musical | I Spy A Spy: A Timely Comedy Of Immigration, Espionage And More


I Spy A Spy is a timely musical comedy of immigration, espionage and the best chicken tikka pizza in Hell's Kitchen. It explores the undying magnetism of the American Dream, which continues to attract dreamers, big and small, from all across the world. José Rodriguez, a Mexican immigrant in New York City, has an American Dream - to become a someone. But as an undocumented delivery guy he feels practically invisible. Alina Orlova also has an American Dream - to undermine America. But as she's Russia's worst spy, she can't take a step outside without being noticed by everyone. When Jose and Alina meet, they realize they're yin to each other's yang and they hatch a scheme to crack the Mayor of New York's Annual Gala to fulfill their dreams. But when suddenly figures from their past crash the party, Jose and Alina are dragged onto a crazy roller coaster ride with the Mexican Mafia, the Russian Secret Service, a Pakistani pizza proprietor, a Korean deli owner and the Department of Homeland Security-- all before finding out who will be crowned International Spy of the Year.

Author Reading | Democracy in Exile: Hans Speier and the Rise of the Defense Intellectual


Author Daniel Bessner is the Anne H.H. and Kenneth B. Pyle Assistant Professor in American Foreign Policy in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington. He has published pieces in The New York Times, The Guardian, and other popular and scholarly venues. "Anyone interested in the history of U.S. foreign relations, Cold War history, and twentieth century intellectual history will find this impressive biography of Hans Speier, one of the most influential figures in American defense circles of the twentieth century, a must-read. In Democracy in Exile, Daniel Bessner shows how the experience of the Weimar Republic’s collapse and the rise of Nazism informed Hans Speier’s work as an American policymaker and institution builder. Bessner delves into Speier’s intellectual development, illuminating the ideological origins of the expert-centered approach to foreign policymaking and revealing the European roots of Cold War liberalism. Democracy in Exile places Speier at the center of the influential and fascinating transatlantic network of policymakers, many of them German émigrés, who struggled with the tension between elite expertise and democratic politics. Speier was one of the most prominent intellectuals among this cohort, and Bessner traces his career, in which he advanced from university intellectual to state expert, holding a key position at the RAND Corporation and serving as a powerful consultant to the State Department and Ford Foundation, across the mid-twentieth century. Bessner depicts the critical role Speier played in the shift in American intellectual history in which hundreds of social scientists left their universities and contributed to the creation of an expert-based approach to U.S. foreign relations, in the process establishing close connections between governmental and nongovernmental organizations. As Bessner writes: to understand the rise of the defense intellectual, we must understand Hans Speier." http://www.cornellpress.cornell.edu/book/?gcoi=80140104396220

Lecture | Muslims in Transition: Religion and Politics in Western Europe


This talk will critically trace the emergence of ‘’Islam’’ and ‘Muslim” as politicized and securitized categories in Western Europe. It will then turn to an in-depth case study on Shia Muslim community formation in the United Kingdom. In doing so, it aims to show how the political climate in Europe and the Middle East region has not only complicated the role of Islam in western secular societies, but has complicated and transformed communal boundaries and networks within and between Muslim communities in Western Europe. Speaker Kathryn Spellman Poots is a Visiting Associate Professor at Columbia University and Academic Program Director for the MA in Islamic Studies.

Author Reading | The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition


Author Linda Gordon discusses her book, The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition. Extraordinary national acclaim accompanied the publication of award-winning historian Linda Gordon’s disturbing and markedly timely history of the reassembled Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s. Dramatically challenging our preconceptions of the hooded Klansmen responsible for establishing a Jim Crow racial hierarchy in the 1870s South, this “second Klan” spread in states principally above the Mason-Dixon line by courting xenophobic fears surrounding the flood of immigrant “hordes” landing on American shores. An urgent examination into the revived Klan of the 1920s becomes “required reading” for our time (New York Times Book Review).

Author Reading | A World Without "Whom": The Future Of "Correct" Writing


Emmy Favilla makes a case for breaking the rules laid out by Strunk and White: A world without "whom," she argues, is a world with more room for writing that's clear, timely, pleasurable, and politically aware. As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of "correct" writing? When Favilla was tasked with creating a style guide for BuzzFeed, she opted for spelling, grammar, and punctuation guidelines that would reflect not only the site's lighthearted tone, but also how readers actually use language IRL. Special Guest: Benjamin Dreyer, author of Dreyer's English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style

Evolved over the course of 10 years, cut work travels through Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s diverse vocabulary of mediums—from paper and metal to leather and 12-gauge gunshot blasts—to understand the play between visceral responses and meditative rest.

Opening Reception | Erik Madigan Heck: A Master of Color and Pattern


Erik Madigan Heck is a master of color and pattern. He is an artist who uses fashion photography as a vehicle for his art and as a point of departure, elevating fashion photography to fine art. He photographs with a painter’s eye and his vision produces work of rare beauty. With a palette of highly saturated color, he creates flattened figures often combining and overlaying patterns to produce vivid, almost Japanese imagery. The work is always lit by natural light. Frequently the model’s back is to the camera or her face is not visible, drawing attention to the composition, patterns, color and textures. Erik Madigan Heck was born in Excelsior, Minnesota in 1983. His work appears in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, and Harper’s Bazaar, among other publications. He has been the recipient of many awards including the ICP Infinity Award. He lives and works in Connecticut and New York City.

This unprecedented exhibition will be the first to focus solely on Motherwell’s approach to large-format painting, comprised of works spanning the 1960s-1980s including a core group of paintings from the collection of The Dedalus Foundation. As one of the most ambitious mark-makers of the Abstract Expressionist era, the monumental canvas was an especially fitting format for Robert Motherwell, and Kasmin’s new 3,000 square foot, column-free gallery with nearly twenty-foot ceilings in the epicenter of Chelsea is the ideal architectural context to experience these rarely seen masterworks.

Author Reading | Soldiers of the Nation: Military Service and Modern Puerto Rico


As the island of Puerto Rico transitioned from Spanish to U.S. imperial rule, the military and political mobilization of popular sectors of its society played important roles in the evolution of its national identities and subsequent political choices. While scholars of American imperialism have examined the political, economic, and cultural aspects of U.S. colonialism in Puerto Rico, few have considered the integral role of Puerto Rican men in colonial military service and in helping to consolidate the empire. Author Harry Franqui-Rivera argues that the emergence of strong and complicated Puerto Rican national identities is deeply rooted in the long history of colonial military organizations on the island. Franqui-Rivera examines the patterns of inclusion-exclusion within the military and the various forms of citizenship that are subsequently transformed into socioeconomic and political enfranchisement.

Opening Reception | Graphic Designers From Italy In America


Italian Types features works by Fortunato Depero, Paolo Garretto, Costantino Nivola, Leo Lionni, George Giusti, Albe Steiner, Erberto Carboni, Aldo Giurgola, Roberto Mango, Giovanni Pintori, Bruno Munari, Franco Grignani, Heinz Waibl, Giulio Cittato, Bob Noorda, and Massimo Vignelli. The Italian influences on American culture are far-reaching and well-documented. Yet, with a few exceptions of some key figures chronicled in Italian and American graphic design histories, the work by Italian graphic designers published in America is less well known. From Fortunato Depero’s move to New York City in 1928 to Unimark International’s work of the 1960s and 1970s, Italian graphic designers were living and publishing important work in the U.S. The sixteen designers featured (Italian-born and a few “adopted” Italians) contributed commercial graphic design in America during the pre and post World War II eras from approximately 1928 until 1980. With over seventy original works, the exhibition aims to bring more attention to this prolific network of collaborators who, with their unique achievements, played a significant role in coalescing modern graphic design in America. ]

Hidden away at his Bridgehampton beach home and cloistered behind the closed doors of private rehearsal studios, Robbins tirelessly attempted construct an honest self-portrait, detailing his own Jewish immigrant heritage, family history, and personal failures. Jerome Robbins was an American choreographer, director, dancer, and theater producer who worked in classical ballet, on Broadway, and in films and television. Among his numerous stage productions he worked on were On the Town, Peter Pan, High Button Shoes, The King and I, The Pajama Game, Bells Are Ringing, West Side Story, Gypsy, and Fiddler on the Roof; Robbins was a five-time Tony Award-winner and a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors.

Talk | An Ever Fresh Pleasure: Equestrian Life along the Bloomingdale Road


Before there was Central Park, with its miles of bridle paths and drives, avid equestrians and devotees of fast harness horses or slower moving carriages could travel the network of roads and farm lanes that meandered the length and breadth of Manhattan. Day-tripping on the Bloomingdale Road – with its grand vistas, hidden coves, inns, and taverns – was among the most popular pastimes for Manhattan’s riders and drivers. The opening of Central Park only added to the attraction of riding and driving the old roads, and as the city grew, the west side, in particular, became home to some of the most influential riding schools and clubs in the United States. Speaker Judith Martin Woodall was the office manager of the Claremont Riding Academy for twenty-seven years. She received the John H. Daniels Fellowship at the National Sporting Library and Museum in Middleburg, Virginia for her project, Witching the World with Noble Horsemanship: Riding in New York City, 1770-2007.

Concert | MAGA: The People’s Perspective


Over the last several years, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter J. Hoard’s voice, lyrical genius, and fashion have become staples in the urban and traditional music scenes. His original compositions and arrangements easily shift in genre to communicate his boundless imagination. The versatile artist has collaborated with countless musicians—including Kimbra, Pharoahe Monch, Macklemore, Lorde, and Chance The Rapper (with whom he won a Grammy for his contribution on “No Problem”). A regular at Arlene’s Grocery and currently the artist-in-residence at National Sawdust, he’s since broken out with a solo act, lending his vibrant melodies and engaging personality to a set of protest and freedom songs that celebrates the shared struggles of U.S. minorities. With his unique blend of Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, and Beyoncé, J. Hoard is taking hip-hop and R&B power anthems to a new level.

Musical | I Spy A Spy: A Timely Comedy Of Immigration, Espionage And More


I Spy A Spy is a timely musical comedy of immigration, espionage and the best chicken tikka pizza in Hell's Kitchen. It explores the undying magnetism of the American Dream, which continues to attract dreamers, big and small, from all across the world. José Rodriguez, a Mexican immigrant in New York City, has an American Dream - to become a someone. But as an undocumented delivery guy he feels practically invisible. Alina Orlova also has an American Dream - to undermine America. But as she's Russia's worst spy, she can't take a step outside without being noticed by everyone. When Jose and Alina meet, they realize they're yin to each other's yang and they hatch a scheme to crack the Mayor of New York's Annual Gala to fulfill their dreams. But when suddenly figures from their past crash the party, Jose and Alina are dragged onto a crazy roller coaster ride with the Mexican Mafia, the Russian Secret Service, a Pakistani pizza proprietor, a Korean deli owner and the Department of Homeland Security-- all before finding out who will be crowned International Spy of the Year.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it."

Concert | Early Music Performed on Period Instruments


While The Queens Consort performs a wide variety of repertoire spanning many countries and time periods, they have a particular fondness for music of the Venetian baroque. Their instruments are: two baroque violins, baroque viola, harpsichord, baroque cello and two recordes. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers.

There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it.' The Venice Insider Recordings of one of The Queens Consort founding member, Violinist Claire Smith, include Shakira’s album, “She Wolf,” Ritchie Blackmore’s Night’s “Dancer and the Moon,” “Winter Carols,” “All Our Yesterdays,” and Candice Night’s “Starlight, Starbright.”

Performance | Invisible Apples: Magic as Performance Art


Magician and artist Jeanette Andrews invites guests to experience a night of magic that will upend all of their notions of what magic, at its most beautiful and confounding, can be. In her first public performance in New York City, Andrews will use an unlikely tool—scents from the natural world, such as apples and fresh soil—as catalysts to guide the audience through a series of interactive illusions. Along the way, her guests will create the impossible and seemingly predict the future. Andrews’ work uses scientific oddities and sensory anomalies to uncover a heightened world amid everyday life. “As an illusionist,” she says, “it is my job to create paradoxes and impossible visuals.” Jeanette Andrews specializes in creating performative, art-based interactive sensory magic, possessing a contemplative take on the art of the impossible, and is hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today. Performing her first magic show for her preschool class, and presenting her first paid show at age six, magic has been Andrews' sole vocation. With her studio based in Chicago, Andrews has staged hundreds of sold-out and standing-room-only performances at museums, theaters and universities across the United States.

Staged Reading | Christopher Marlowe's Classic Faust


A special one-hour reading of Christopher Marlowe's classic "Faust" script, directed by Elizabeth Ruf-Maldonado. Readers will include Crystal Field and other actors of Theater for the New City plus members of the ensemble of "Johannes Dokchtor Faust." The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus, commonly referred to simply as Doctor Faustus, is an Elizabethan tragedy by Christopher Marlowe, based on German stories about the title character Faust. It was written sometime between 1589 and 1592, and might have been performed between 1592 and Marlowe's death in 1593. Two different versions of the play were published in the Jacobean era, several years later. Refreshments will be served.

Discussion | Discussion On American Women Artists Working Before 1945 


American women artists working before 1945 had to navigate societal expectations of women’s domestic roles with their drive to be  professionals. These artists often faced difficult choices–-sacrificing in their personal lives or in their careers. Despite evident talent and success, most fell into obscurity with their death. In this interactive session, you can discover and closely examine works by women artists who collectively paint a picture of a changing America. Host Rena Tobey’s greatest passion is making art accessible, invigorating, insightful, and fun. She taught art history at Connecticut State University. Now, she teaches at the 92nd Street Y, conducts lively tours of museum collections, and provides talks on American art for community organizations.

Gallery Talk | Art Talk With Visual Artists


Conversation with Constantina Zavitsanos and Hannah Black. Hannah Black is a conceptual visual artist and writer. Her work spans video, text and performance and draws on communist, feminist, and afropessimist theory, autobiographical fragments, and pop music Hannah Black’s video installation, Beginning, End, None, takes the cell, the building block of all living organisms, as its starting point. Questioning the classic analogy of the cell as “factory,” Black explores the ideological aura of this comparison, which implicitly naturalizes the factory and commodifies the cell. Using found, personal, and laboratory footage, Black explores the leakiness of metaphoric and real transmissions between concepts of biology and society. Constantina Zavitsanos is a conceptual feminist artist. Her works are organized around themes of planning, contingency, debt, dependency and care. Zavitsanos is a part of disability community as a care provider and recipient. She is a recipient of the 2015 Wynn Newhouse Award presented to disabled artists. At The New Museum between March and September 2015, she curated a series of collaborative events with artists Reina Gossett, Park McArthur, Caroline Key, and Soyoung Yoon, and academics Stefano Harney, Fred Moten, and Denise Ferreira da Silva.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: The Map and the Territory


The concept of representation has intrigued many great thinkers. Artists, too, have long investigated the real and representational in their work. The Map and the Territory—Tony Ingrisano’s third solo exhibition with the gallery—explores the relationships of these arrangements and focuses on this disconnect between reality and representation.   Most maps prioritize readability at the expense of accuracy; perspective drawings offer a framework for creating an illusion of reality but get erased as the drawing advances. They tell us as much about how we imagine a place as they do about the geography they are meant to describe. Encoded into them are a culture’s preconceptions, the fraught perceptual distortions of a location within the world.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Stained Glass Cliff


A new series of paintings by Jackie Gendel. Casting a sense of peril and irony upon Gendel’s occasional play with planar and divisionist models of painting, the exhibition's title refers to “glass cliff.” The term, coined in 2005 by British professors Michelle K. Ryan and Alexander Haslam, describes a common practice in which women are only promoted to positions of power in times of crisis and risk. Gendel’s usage charges the expression, suggesting an invisible precipice that mirrors the angularity, transparency, and fragmentary quality found in many of her paintings.

Classical Music | Works by Grammy Nominated Composer And More


An afternoon of great 20th and 21st century music for strings, featuring music by Michael Torke, Anna Clyne, Benjamin Britten and Erich Korngold. Featuring:  Strings of the Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra; Chris Whittaker, conductor. About the Program The music of Michael Torke has been called "some of the most optimistic, joyful and thoroughly uplifting music to appear in recent years" (Gramophone). Hailed as a "vitally inventive composer" (Financial Times) and "a master orchestrator whose shimmering timbral palette makes him the Ravel of his generation" (New York Times), Torke has created a substantial body of works in virtually every genre. Anna Clyne is a Grammy-nominated composer of acoustic and electro-acoustic music. Described as a "composer of uncommon gifts and unusual methods" in a New York Times profile and as "dazzlingly inventive" by Time Out New York, Clyne’s work often includes collaborations with cutting-edge choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, and musicians worldwide. Benjamin Britten’s importance in post-War British cultural life was enhanced by his founding of the English Opera Group in 1946 and the Aldeburgh Festival two years later. His career as a composer was matched by his outstanding ability as a performer: he was both a refined pianist and a spontaneous and fluent conductor – his Mozart was particularly highly esteemed. Erich Korngold’s music theatre works made him the most popularly performed German-speaking opera composer between 1910 and the 1930s alongside Richard Strauss. The opera Die tote Stadt (1916-1919) today continues to be included in the regular music theatre repertoire.

Opening Reception | World of One: Surreal Self-Portraiture


World of One is a surreal and cinematic exploration of how identity is developed through self-portraiture. By juxtaposing actions within the same frame, Tang welcomes us to question our thoughts, actions and emotions that truly define us. Is it our habits, the things we do subconsciously? Or is it our spectacular one offs, such as the one time we were brave? Or is it that one time we were not? Johnny Tang is an emerging fine art photographer who has exhibited domestically and internationally in cities such as: New York, Miami, Seoul and Hong Kong. Tang describes his working process as “the balancing between eye candy and mind candy.” Adding that, “Just as we use photography in science to better understand our physical world, I use photography to better understand our emotional one.”

On May 24, 1883, journalist Montgomery Schuyler said "It so happens that the work which is likely to be our most durable monument, and to convey some knowledge of us to the most remote posterity, is a work of bare utility; not a shrine, not a fortress, not a palace, but a bridge." This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact. Note: this tour is held early, as to avoid the massive crowds that the bridge continues to attract, 135 years after its completion.

Festival | Happy 100th Birthday, Lawrence Ferlinghetti!


March 24th is Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s 100th birthday. Poet, painter, socialist activist, and the co-founder of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers, Ferlinghetti has dedicated his life to poetry and free expression over the course of the US’s shifting attitudes towards censorship in the media in the 20th century. As the defendant in the 1957 Howl Obscenity Trial, Ferlinghetti was backed by the American Civil Liberties Union when he won the case in which California State Superior Court Judge Clayton Horn ruled that Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and Other Poems was of “redeeming social importance” and therefore not obscene. Paying tribute to this historic moment and honoring Ferlinghetti’s life and ongoing work, Howl! Happening is delighted to host in New York City a 100th birthday party celebration in association with City Lights Bookstore and Knopf Doubleday publishers. The day will include a launch of Ferlinghetti’s new novel Little Boy. Featuring Ed Sanders, Hettie Jones, David Henderson, Eileen Myles, Bob Holman, Anne Waldman, Helixx C. Armageddon and more. The afternoon of celebrations will also feature a screening of Chris Felver‘s documentary Ferlinghetti as well as clips from Bob Holman’s United States of Poetry and the NET documentary USA: Poetry.

Play | The Woods: The Narratives On American Landscape


The Woods explores our learned relationships to the "American" landscape, who’s taught to love it? Who's taught to fear it? Who's allowed to claim it? And the consequences of those cultural narratives have on young Black Americans, only just learning what being Black in today's "American landscape" might mean for them. Going forward, might there be a way to manifest a more positive narrative surrounding the natural environment, for the sake of all of those next in line to inherit it?..." A new play by Jahna Ferron-Smith. Directed by Colette Robert. Featuring Daniel Abeles, Lydian Blossom, Will Dagger, Bjorn duPaty, Starr Kirkland, Julius Powell, Drew Lewis and Naomi Lorrain.

Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Lecture | A Greenwich Village Legacy: The Anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911


This very special presentation, on the anniversary of the actual March 25th event, will begin with a walk down Fifth Avenue to the site of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire for a brief talk before returning for the 7:30PM lecture. Now part of New York University's campus just east of Washington Square Park, this building was the locale for one of the most significant tragedies in American history pre-9-11. This event has influenced many aspects of our lives today - in the garment industry, immigration and life in NYC, labor laws and unions, elevator and fire safety and more.   There were over 500 employees at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory - most were young women, most were recent immigrants. On March 25, 1911, a fire broke out on the 8th floor. Workers ran to the fire escape. It collapsed, dropping them to their deaths. People on the street watched as the workers began to jump out the windows. Fire trucks arrived but their ladders only reached the 6th floor. The elevators ran as long as they could as workers pressed into the cars; some tumbled down the elevator shaft. In the end 146 people died.    As a family descendant of one of the victims, 18 year old Annie Nicholas, Debbie Wells lectures about the factory and the fire, as well as her journey to uncover her personal family connection through speaking to historians at Cornell University, New York Times and HBO, and especially the Remember the Triangle Coalition whose latest project is to create a Triangle Fire Memorial. The memorial was designed by an award-winning architect and plans are in the works to erect it on the building site as a meaningful tribute.

Performance | LGBTQ in Italian Theater: 50 Years from the Stonewall Uprising and of LGBTQ Liberation


One of the first mentions of a gay character in Italian cinema was in 1962's Parigi o cara by Franca Valeri.

This is a journey into such stories from Arialda to contemporary Italian LGBTQ theater. Scenes by Italian playwrights: Albert Innaurato, Frank J. Avella, and Joey Merlo In English.

Author Reading | Two Novelists Chart The Connections Between Motherhood, Migration, Race, And Identity


Irina Reyn's Mother Country sheds light on the difficulty of motherhood and how mothers examine their values for themselves and their children. Nadia's new life in Brooklyn reveals how the challenges of immigration and motherhood leave mothers to question: Who am I? Who do I want to become?   Race and culture naturally become part of the examination, as in Rumaan Alam's That Kind of Mother, an exploration of race, class, and family.  In the novel, Rebecca, a white middle-class woman with a newborn, steps forward to adopt the child of her nanny, Priscilla, who dies suddenly in childbirth. Rebbeca "felt like an imposter ever on the verge of being unmasked." Her new experience as a mother with a black son prompts her to question: How has this affected my life? How will this impact the life of my children?   Reyn and Alam discuss  motherhood, the relationship between parenting and identity, and how literature can speak to these issues.

Discussion | Where Has 'Japanese Women’s Language' Gone?


During the bubble economy of the mid 1980s through early 1990s, Japanese women’s language grew with public passion, incentivizing Japanese women with the promise of upward mobility. But in the post-bubble economy, public discourse on women’s language lost steam in the media. The relationship between language and gender shifted during this time both in Japanese politics and economics. Using Gilles Deleuze's notions on control society, this event will ask how post-bubble Japanese society uses language as a vehicle for gender inequality. More importantly, they will discuss how to forge a new method of critique to disrupt linguistic sexism.

Author Reading | What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker: A Memoir in Essays


From the cofounder of VerySmartBrothas.com, and one of the most read writers on race and culture at work today, a provocative and humorous memoir-in-essays that explores the ever-shifting definitions of what it means to be Black (and male) in America For Damon Young, existing while Black is an extreme sport. The act of possessing black skin while searching for space to breathe in America is enough to induce a ceaseless state of angst where questions such as “How should I react here, as a professional black person?” and “Will this white person’s potato salad kill me?” are forever relevant. What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker chronicles Young’s efforts to survive while battling and making sense of the various neuroses his country has given him.

Author Reading | What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker: A Memoir in Essays


“What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker is striking in its storytelling and imagery, in its honesty and humor, in its self-reflection and self-criticism, in its Blackness and humanity. Damon Young produced an unobstructed and unsanitized memoir that few people have the courage to write and all people should be encouraged to read." -- Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Author Reading | Rendezvous with Death: The Americans Who Joined the Foreign Legion in 1914 to Fight for France and for Civilization


Before America joined World War I, a small group of Americans volunteered for the French Foreign Legion to help defeat the Central Powers. Historian David Hanna profiles seven of these volunteers: a poet, an artist, a boxer, a stunt pilot, a college student, a veteran of the Spanish American War, and an advertising executive. All seven men were united in courage; and some, like poet Alan Seeger, paid the ultimate sacrifice.
