Behind the current overwhelming scene of radicalism and terrorism in the Middle East lies an old struggle between two competing ideologies: the first championed by reformers, who believe in the notion of modern nation state. The second sponsored by radicals, who call themselves awakeners, and believe in the establishment of the theological state. This lecture sheds the light on the contemporary manifestation of this struggle and the way forward. With: Ambassador Ahmed Farouk Consul General of Arab Republic of Egypt in New York

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.

Lecture |
António Ole is a well-known painter and artist from Angola who has worked on installations and abstract paintings depicting walls of the city of Luanda, in artistic projects such as Township Walls and In the skin of the city. Ole’s interest in the surfaces of the city started during late colonial times, when the city was going through a process of unprecedented urbanization. His photographs of shacks’ façades may be interpreted, today, as countering the official narrative of the Colonial State in trying to portray urban development in Luanda as an index of its civilizing mission in Africa. In this presentation, the speaker will discuss Ole’s work to shed light on two questions. How Ole’s artistic working process may offer methodological insights on theoretical practices for understanding the urban in contemporary Luanda. How thinking with/through art might help us take more seriously the materiality and the everydayness of the urban in contemporary Africa. The dialectical relationship between informal settlements and the urban centre will provide entry points to understand how colonial and postcolonial urbanisms have dealt with the question of homeliness. Speaker António Tomás did his doctoral studies in Anthropology at Columbia University, in the city of New York. Currently, he is a Senior Lecturer at the African Centre for Cities, University of Cape Town (South Africa).

Phyllis Rosser invokes the wildness of nature in her latest solo exhibition of sculpture and paintings. Tree limbs stripped bare of their bark, which she gathers from the banks of the Connecticut River in Vermont, are woven into large abstract constructions. The assembled limbs are left in their natural state, which suggests their earlier life rushing through water and heightens the sensuality of the bare wood surface. Some sculptures are painted vibrant colors to make the lyrical patterns of their construction more explicit. Rosser uses phrases from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass for her titles to express exuberance and passion for the natural world. Marilyn Banner 's work with water and the water's edge began in 2011. She was moved to capture the tones and mysterious strips of color that moved from the sand at her feet across the water to the other shore and to the horizon. She finds ways to be at the water's edge for a time each year. Her experience there is so profound that she takes in many layers of inspiration and nourishment from the air, the sound of the wind and the waves, the feel of sand underfoot, and the bits of "stuff" glimpsed as she walks along the edge.

After an encounter with a tensile testing machine—which measures the state of matter as it turns plastic, with elements traveling back and forth to produce resonance—Aki Sasamoto started to construct an installation to explore the need for sufficient elasticity in life. How close can one approach one’s breaking point, and what happens between one’s limit and one’s end? Objects will be quietly performing within a lighting design by Madeline Best, and Sasamoto will insert weekly performances to unpack elasticity, sometimes solo, and other times with saxophonist Matt Bauder or singer-songwriter Alsarah.

The beauty of pure mathematics is at the essence of all in nature. Not only is it the language of science, it is the basis of the systems behind everything we see- proportion, symmetry, sequences, repetition, fractals, patterns. Woven into our everyday surroundings, often only discernible to the practiced eye, mathematics is at the core of the natural world and the foundation of imagined ones. It is only natural that artists find it an irresistible subject. Regardless of how these artists approach the world, the mathematics of their work powerfully echoes throughout the universe. Participating Artists: Cynthia Back, C Bangs, Caroline Blum, MJ Caselden, Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine, Beverly K. Duncan, Gerhild Ebel, Robyn Ellenbogen, Steven Gawoski, Susan Happersett, Amber Heaton, Jeanne Heifetz, Helena Kauppila, Lorin Roser, Martha Willette Lewis, Geraldine Ondrizek, Gerhard Mantz, Eva Mantell, Alan Rosner, Simona Soare, Sarah Stengle, Kathy Strauss, Rachael Wren

Two hapless understudies occupy their time backstage, trying to understand art, life, theatre and their precarious existence within it. Described as “delectable” by The New York Times and “gleefully absurd” by Time Out New York this hilariously witty comedy ponders Beckett, showbiz and just what on earth it’s all about. Turns out, the only people who truly understand Beckett’s Waiting For Godot, are the understudies. Hanson will be joined by Mark Bell (director of Broadway's madcap comedy The Play That Goes Wrong) for a reading of the play's first act. The event will be followed by a signing.

In conjunction with his exhibition Zane York: Nature Morte, Zane York will discuss his work . With a hint of dark humor, York transforms traditional floral still lifes and familiar scenes into unexpected compositions in Nature Morte. Clusters of insects morph into floral arrangements, and cats in the clutches of pigeons rise to the heavens. Executed in the style and skill of famed Dutch masters, York reminds us of the mortality, transience and vulnerability of all living things.

Preet Bharara oversees the investigation and litigation of all criminal and civil cases brought on behalf of the United States in the Southern District of New York. Under his leadership, the office has experienced one of the most productive periods in its history. Known for being at the forefront of prosecuting financial misconduct including securities fraud and insider trading, this record of rooting out fraud earned Bharara the nickname “Sheriff of Wall Street” according to ABC News. In addition to helping secure convictions of numerous insider trading defendants, his office has brought a number of significant civil actions alleging financial and healthcare fraud and collected hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements, including from Deutsche Bank, CitiMortgage and Bank of America for fraud relating to faulty lending practices. His office has also held to account several of the world’s largest corporations for their misconduct, including JP Morgan Chase for its relationship with Madoff Securities. Under Bharara’s supervision, the office has brought a series of significant and systemically revelatory public corruption cases against members of New York City and State governments. Furthermore, the office has continued its traditional civil rights work by, for example, conducting a multi-year investigation into the treatment of adolescent males at Rikers Island.

Lecture |
Changes along Italy's southern Adriatic coast five centuries ago created human and ecological conditions that endured for centuries. Menaces born of people and of the sea worked their way into the ecologies of the shore, leaving behind material and conceptual traces of that time. The shore was imagined as sick, and the shallows just beyond were envisioned as a threat and an obstruction. That sickliness—the Italian word was malsania —expressed a human and historical relation to the seacoast. This talk explores an early episode in the transformation that occurred in the 1770s: the digging of the Pigonati Channel to reconnect Brindisi’s silted harbor to the Adriatic Sea. The episode reveals something of the greater change that took place, while underscoring how ideas of what constitutes environmental menace, and the expectations that develop reassurances in the face of these, are themselves historical. The reassurances of a more recent past are now crumbling faster than the pace of rising seas. Summer crowds mask deep changes in the ecologies of the shore, while seasonal rhythms create a new and different abandonment. People and the sea will surely build a new coast, the shape and menace of which we do not know. With: Sean Cocco, Trinity College, CT

Read any history of New York City and you will read about men. But that's not the whole story. Julie Scelfo reveals the untold stories of the phenomenal women who made NYC the cultural epicenter of the world. Many were revolutionaries and activists; others were icons and iconoclasts. Some led quiet lives, but were influential. Scelfo reinvigorates not just New York's history but its very identity.

Irène Némirovsky succeeded in creating a brilliant career as a novelist in the 1930s, only to have her life cut short: a “foreign Jew” in France, she was deported in 1942 and died in Auschwitz. But her two young daughters survived, and as adults they brought their mother back to life. In 2004, Suite française, Némirovsky’s posthumous novel, became an international best seller; some critics, however, condemned her as a “self-hating Jew” whose earlier works were rife with anti-Semitic stereotypes. Acclaimed translator of Irene Nemirovsky novels, Sandra Smith and Susan Rubin Suleiman will discuss Suleiman’s The Némirovsky Question: The Life, Death, and Legacy of a Jewish Writer in 20th-Century France. Informed by personal interviews with Némirovsky’s descendants and others, as well as by extensive archival research, Suleiman’s  wide-ranging intellectual biography situates Némirovsky in the literary and political climate of interwar France and recounts, for the first time, the postwar lives of her daughters. Némirovsky’s Jewish works, Suleiman argues, should be read as explorations of the conflicted identities that shaped the lives of secular Jews in twentieth-century Europe and beyond.

Join Ethiopia-born, San Francisco–based singer-songwriter Meklit for a danceable celebration of Ethiopian grooves and pentatonic melodies, with bumping horn lines and poetic impact. Drawing on the haunting, nostalgic Tizita music of her heritage as well as the jazz, folk music, hip-hop, and art rock of her current home, this “stunning” artist (San Francisco Chronicle) creates music from the “in-between spaces.” A cultural activist, TED Senior Fellow, and cofounder of The Nile Project, Meklit’s TED talk, The Unexpected Beauty of Everyday Sounds, has been watched by more than 1 million people. For this special evening at the Atrium, she marks the release of her third solo album This Was Made Here, produced by Grammy-winning songwriter/producer Dan Wilson and inspired by Dr. Mulatu Astatke, the Godfather of Ethio-Jazz.
