Lecture |
Historical parallels abound in Sana Krasikov’s new novel, The Patriots, about three generations of an American family who emigrate in reverse from the US to Russia. Reviewers have called the book alarmingly relevant to our political moment. Krasikov will talk about her efforts to decode the vernacular of autocracy, and how writing the story of Americans lost in Russia felt uncomfortably close to home.  Sana Krasikov was born in Ukraine and grew up in Georgia and the United States. Her story collection One More Year won a "5 Under 35" award from the National Book Foundation, and the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature. It was a finalist for the 2009 PEN/Hemingway Award and for the NYPL Young Lions Fiction Prize. Her latest novel, The Patriots, explores the effects of the Cold War on three generations of one American family, from the 1930s to the present.

Opening Reception |
Sugatarium explores the uncontrollable and insanely addictive hold sugar has on us. In these troubled and unsettled times – where nothing seems to make sense – artist Peter Anton heightens the delirium by transforming the gallery into a Sugatarium. He describes the transformed space as “an asylum that is locked up and long forgotten. Visitors must sneak into the Sugatarium through an open window. Institutional beds await the new ‘patients’ where they can rest and view the artwork while confronting their own dependence on sweets.” At the exhibition opening, for their own safety, visitors will only be allowed to speak with Anton through a glass partition via a phone intercom system. Monumental-sized, vibrant, and hyper-realistic sculptures – including a cherry pie, an ice cream sundae, cake, macarons, and other sugary treats – will be smashed, mushed, splattered, broken and thrown throughout the space. Anton’s sculptures are highly detailed and hand-crafted from carefully selected and manipulated materials, including resin, plaster, wood, clay, aluminum, and acrylic and oil paints.

Opening Reception |
Attenuated elongated leaves are reaching up, stretching, radiating, curling, twisting, waving, emerging from gnarled, ribbed trunks. Carol Goebel evokes the natural world of plant life in wood fired clay. The kiln produces swaths of fire that striate the trunks and leaves with brownish purples, greens and yellows. Some sculptures have diffuse shooting leaves while in others, single leaflets sprout from decayed mottled stalks. As counterpoint, also displayed are vibrant, subtly colored pastel paintings that echo the sculptures' starker lines. Carlyle Chaudruc Upson continues her exploration of watercolor grass painting in a series inspired by hiking in Asia and the United States. These linear paintings, created in a very gestural manner, explore the varied and kinetic texture of grasses as they move in the wind.

Each year the German Translation Fund organizes several workshops around the world focused on translating from German into one particular language and vice versa. This year for the first time, one of these ViceVersa week-long workshops is taking place in the United States with five German-to-English translators and five English-to-German translators, led by Shelley Frisch and Karen Nölle. In conjunction with this workshop, Frisch and Nölle will host a panel on current directions in literary translation, and workshop participants will present from new translations in progress. The evening will provide a window into what it means to spend most-- or all-- of one's waking hours contemplating texts in one language and recreating them in new linguistic garb.

As a player, Charles Dillon “Casey” Stengel’s contemporaries included Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, and Christy Mathewson... and he was the only person in history to wear the uniforms of all four New York teams: the Dodgers, Giants, Yankees, and Mets. For more than five glorious decades, Stengel was the undisputed, quirky, hilarious, and beloved face of baseball -- and along the way he revolutionized the role of manager while winning a spectacular ten pennants and seven World Series Championships. But for a man who spent so much of his life in the limelight -- an astounding fifty-five years in professional baseball -- Stengel remains an enigma. Acclaimed baseball historian and bestselling author Marty Appel digs into Casey Stengel’s quirks and foibles, unearthing a tremendous trove of baseball stories, perspective, and history.

The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), described by The New York Times as “one of the most accomplished and adventurous groups in new music,” has premiered over 500 compositions, mostly by emerging composers, since its founding in 2001. To reshape the way  that music is created and shared, ICE is  striving to create a radically accessible online archive, where composers, performers, and audiences can discover new works and share their thoughts about how music is composed, performed, and heard. ICE comes to the Library, seeking your help with this revolutionary archive. Join us for an interactive concert, where ICE collects your responses to vocalist Tony Arnold's world premiere performance of a new work by the acclaimed composer Chaya Czernowin.

Four time Grammy Award winner Glen Velez is the founding father of the modern frame drum movement and is regarded as a legendary figure among musicians and audiences world-wide. Velez brought a new genre of drumming to the contemporary music scene by creating his own performance style inspired by years of percussion and frame drumming studies from various cultures. Velez’s virtuosic combinations of hand movements, finger techniques, along with his original compositional style, which incorporates stepping, drum language and Central Asian Overtone singing (split-tone singing), has undoubtedly opened new possibilities for musicians around the globe, resulting in a shift in modern percussion.  For rhythm vocalist Loire Cotler, life has always been about the natural rhythm of the universe which has propelled her into a life, like her music, that is defined by pure cadence and pulse. Loire has now done no less than create an entirely new genre using the intimate power of her voice as a rhythm instrument. She calls upon a distant past of sacred ritual and echo vocal traditions (the Jewish nigunim, Middle Eastern taksim and Konnakol Indian drum language).

In this class, sound healing practitioner Joule L’Adara will teach how to use our own voice as an instrument of self-­healing. You will discover that your voice is a perfectly calibrated healing instrument for your unique body and energy system! You’ll learn how to gently and effectively send vibrations within the body: clearing your energy field and re-charging your brain while bringing about deep relaxation and unleashing your creativity. L'Adara will introduce us to a variety of vocal healing practices including the toning methods of Tomatis and Keyes, harmonic chant, sacred seed syllables, and bija mantras. She will also explain how the conscious use of vocal sounding combined with intention can dramatically improve our manifestation abilities. You will leave this class equipped with a highly effective (and fun!) self-healing practice that you can easily incorporate into your daily life.
