An exhibition of historical and contemporary beauty products surveys the American products, advertisements, and icons that have contributed to cosmetic lid, lash, and brow trends from the 1900s to the present day. Arguably the most distinctive feature of the face, eyes have the power to dramatically transform one’s outward appearance, while also uniquely conveying inner character. Highly expressive, they serve as nonverbal communicators of emotions ranging from sympathy and envy to fear and flirtation.

From the late 17th through the late 19th century, nostalgia denoted a form of homesickness so extreme that it could sometimes be deadly. What Nostalgia Was unearths that history. Thomas Dodman traces the invention of nostalgia as a medical diagnosis in Basel, Switzerland, its spread through the European republic of letters and into Napoleon's armies, its subsequent transformation from a medical term to a more expansive cultural concept, and its shift in meaning in the colonies.

Wynton Marsalis, the internationally acclaimed musician, composer and bandleader, educator, and leading advocate of American culture, will be speaking. Marsalis has created and performed an expansive range of music from quartets to big bands, chamber music ensembles to symphony orchestras and tap dance to ballet, expanding the vocabulary for jazz and classical music with a vital body of work that places him among the world’s finest musicians and composers. His music consistently incorporates the blues, all forms of jazz from New Orleans to modern, swing as the primary rhythm, the American popular song, individual and collective improvisation, and a panoramic vision of compositional styles from ditties to dynamic call-and-response patterns. In 1983, he became the only artist ever to win Grammy Awards for both jazz and classical records; and he repeated the distinction in 1984. In 1997, he became the first jazz musician ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music for Blood on the Fields.

The renowned historian asks: From the Freemasons to Facebook, how have networks been true sources of power and drivers of change throughout history? Most history is hierarchical: it’s about emperors, presidents, prime ministers, and field marshals. It’s about states, armies, and corporations. But what if that’s simply because hierarchical institutions create the archives that historians rely on? What if we are missing the informal, less well documented social networks that have had as much of a hand in shaping history as anything else? The 21st century has been hailed as the Age of Networks, but Niall Ferguson argues that networks have always been with us, from the structure of the brain to the food chain, from the family tree to freemasonry. Ferguson will speak with Gillian Tett, U.S. Managing Editor of The Financial Times.

The Astana Ballet Theater is one of the leading performance companies of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The primary aim of the theater is to develop the art of Kazakh ballet and create national works that include bold ideas and new forms. The theater has its own original artistic signature and unique repertoire. The Astana Ballet Theater tours actively in Kazakhstan and abroad, where it has visited Moscow, St. Petersburg, Beijing, Paris, Vienna, Seoul, Budapest, Baku, Minsk, New York, Tokyo, Warsaw and Brussels. The Astana Ballet repertoire includes classic international and national masterpieces, as well as original choreographic compositions by renowned choreographers. Collaborating with choreographers and teachers from different countries has enabled the dancers to acquire a rich vocabulary of modern choreography, and therefore the language of the company is accessible and understandable to audiences throughout the world. The program includes three primary works; Heritage of the Great Steppe includes miniature scenes and moments taken from national ballets rich in culture and color. Love Fear Loss, a ballet set to the songs of Edith Piaf (choreographed by Ricardo Amarante) and inspired by the remarkable life story of the singer is a dance about emotional attachment moved by hymns of love that took the world by storm. A Fuego Lento tells the story of nascent feelings of emotional heat, burning emotions and the force of first love.

A gushing homage to each worker who has feared arrest, and a confrontation to an undiscerning view of migration and whiteness, this hybrid poetry/fiction collection works to lengthen sonic intimacies between unprotected workers by snaking such dialogues or scenarios next to one another as one resonating force. In a political time when people are bracing themselves each time they turn on the news, Sharing Plastic, alongside other voices which only know flux, suggests honoring those who have long known how to navigate the temporary.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

There, Schneider began to develop her personal way of writing for what would become her 18-member collective, made up of many of the finest musicians in jazz today, tailoring her compositions to distinctly highlight the uniquely creative voices of the group.

In 1759, London's British Museum opened its doors for the first time- the first free national public museum in the world. But how did it come into being? This talk recounts the overlooked yet colorful life of the museum's founder: Sir Hans Sloane. Born in 1660, Sloane amassed a fortune as a London society physician, became president of the Royal Society and Royal College of Physicians, and assembled an encyclopedic collection of specimens and objects -the most famous cabinet of curiosities of its time- which became the foundation of the British Museum. Speaker: James Delbourgo, Associate Professor in History of Science and Atlantic World, Rutgers University.

Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist.

Discussion |
A Pressing Conference brings members of the press, artists, historians, and organizers together to share tactics for survival and solidarity inside a brightly-colored, hand-made sculptural installation based on the White House press briefing room. In the format of a press conference, each invited participant responds to a lesson from Timothy Snyder’s book On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From The Twentieth Century, followed by an open invitation for the press and public to ask questions and have a conversation about how to best move forward together in response to the current political climate. Throughout history authoritarian states often begin their consolidation of power by discrediting the press and spreading propaganda to blur the “real” and “true,” creating a sense of distrust and despondency. In the sea of troubling news and events, it can be easy to feel powerless but history shows that our everyday choices can have tremendous impact. A Pressing Conference will highlight the important histories of everyday people and events, offering tools for a future of continued resistance. The sculptural installation and organizing of A Pressing Conference were completed by artist Macon Reed.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The Latin Grammy winners recently capped an international tour with Cafe Tacvba, where—like the toloache flower, which is still considered a love potion in Mexico—the women cast a spell over audiences.

Staged Reading |
Heroes and villains are the springboard for the next ten-minute play reading series. Eight playwrights were selected to write a play for a specific pool of actors incorporating a quote in the body of their work from selected heroes and villains chosen from historical, fictional and comic book figures, from the Man of Steel to the Fuhrer; from Pulitzer Prize winner Toni Morrison to Pocahontas. An additional challenge was to reference another hero or villain in the script … or have one of these figures appear in the play.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

In the Italian town of Pagani, Easter is followed by a rite celebrating the Madonna delle Galline (the Madonna of the Hens), a version of the Virgin Mary venerated with ancestral songs and dances. For thirty days, the devotees move in unison to maintain this tradition, an event that turns faith into memory and transcendence. The documentary follows the citizens of the town during the preparations of the Feast, when everything comes together in a catharsis of music and dance to welcome the birth of a new Spring. 52 min. In Italian with English subtitles.  Followed by a conversation with the director and Alessandra Belloni, Musician/Dancer/Teacher/Ethnomusicologist. Alessandra Belloni will give a demonstration of music and dance with her group I Giullari di Piazza, featuring violinist Mara Gerety, dancers Francesca Silvano and Amara.

Can an illustrated map be a call to action? This was the question mapmaker Connie Brown asked herself two years ago. She resolved to make a map celebrating the magnificent and imperiled African elephant, a creature she had depicted frequently in her work creating commissioned painted maps. She wanted to create a pro bono work with rhetorical strength, one which—through cartography and illustration—would educate, enhance awareness, and spur viewers to action. Though she had the requisite cartographic and artistic skills, she needed a collaborator who was knowledgeable about African elephants and their plight. To that end, she reached out to wildlife conservation champion Katie Losey. Together they determined the map’s thematic choices, aided by experts in the field, as well as journalists, a nature poet, and photographers. In this conversation, Connie Brown and Katie Losey discuss how the maps came to be, detailing the themes, cartographic sources, the design traditions which inspired them, and more.

Although conceived as a ballet, Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet was premiered in concert performances. Musicologist Simon Morrison, conductor Stéphane Denève, and New York City Ballet corps de ballet member Silas Farley reflect on the ballet—chronicling its conception, the composer’s revisions and personal struggles, the political forces that delayed its premiere—and consider Prokofiev’s musical language and dramatic sensibility. They will also compare and contrast the work’s impact in both concert (as the Philharmonic does January 25–27, 2018) and ballet performances (as presented by New York City Ballet, February 13–23, 2018).  Simon Morrison, speaker Stéphane Denève, speaker Silas Farley, speaker

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.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

In his most recent book, which was longlisted for the National Book Award, poet and critic Kevin Young traces the history of the hoax as a peculiarly American phenomenon—the legacy of P.T. Barnum’s “humbug“ culminating with the currency of ”fake news.“ Disturbingly, Young finds that fakery is woven from stereotype and suspicion, with race being the most insidious American hoax of all.

What exactly is a selfie, and why are they everywhere? Whether you happen upon them online or literally run into people selfie-ing on the street, the selfie is an elusive yet consistent aspect of how people visually communicate today. Millennial Alicia Eler argues in her book that selfies are more than just an image — they are a mirror into how we live today. Part-memoir and written from a queer perspective, ultimately Eler’s book seeks to redefine how our culture looks at millennials.

In November 1939, a group of sixty Polish-Jewish refugee authors and journalists who had managed to escape to still neutral Vilnius from recently occupied Poland clandestinely founded the Komitet tsu zamlen materialn vegn yidishn khurbn in Poyln, 1939, the "Committee to Collect Material about the Destruction of Polish Jewry 1939." It would be the earliest known Jewish collective effort in Eastern Europe to document German atrocities against Polish Jewry, preceding every other known comparable activity by roughly a year. Its archive had been lost in the depot of the Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide in London for almost eighty years and was only recently unearthed by Miriam Schulz. Her book provides the first analysis of the genesis, agenda, activities, and achievements of the Vilnius Committee as the cradle of Jewish Shoah historiography and includes a Yiddish to German translation of the Komitet’s six bulletins.

From Telemann’s touching and introspective Fantasie to the expansive Sonata in C major by Bach, this program explores the range and expressive depth that instrumental music in the first decades of the 18th century had reached. Theresa Salomon received her musical education in her native Germany, the Netherlands and in Austria. Since 1991 she has been a member of the Goldberg Ensemble of Vienna and has toured with the string quartet of the Ensemble in Austria, Germany, France and Italy. She was awarded the Lion's Club "Forderung junger Kunstler" Award and played in the Lion's Club Young Artists Concerts in Weisbaden, Germany.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

A special discussion about music and the ghosts of America’s racial past featuring two highly acclaimed authors. A murder mystery, a ghost story, and two cultural tourists collide in Hari Kunzru’s spellbinding novel White Tears, which connects contemporary cultural appropriation and white hawkers of black music with the history of racism and the forgotten geniuses of American music and Delta Mississippi Blues. Pulitzer-Prize winning writer Margo Jefferson’s classic work of cultural criticism, On Michael Jackson, a complex and tender portrait of the King of Pop, reckons with child stardom and the specter of racial ghosts that shaped his celebrity. She’ll read from her evolving work on Michael Jackson and current writing on jazz singers. Moderated by Kevin Nguyen, editor at GQ.
