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.

VulnerableWin is an ambitious, roll-up-your-sleeves initiative designed to create incremental changes in how we think about each other, how we communicate, how we turn our vulnerability into strength and kindness, through education, art, and direct experiences. 60% of it is love, 35% is patience, and 5% is everything else. In the past two years, our nation has become so anxious and divided that restoring the art of heart-to-heart dialogue is almost an emergency. The purpose of VulnerableWin is creating direct experiences that make it emotionally obvious to both participants and observers that bullying is not necessary for the survival of one's identity. It is about to talking to each other as humans, over disagreements and across different echo chambers.

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.

The index always comes at a juncture; it points to a thing but is not the thing itself; it is a tool and instrument of activation. As they celebrate the 25th Vera List Center for Art and Politics Fellowship Anniversary, they consider the ways in which the Vera List Center Fellowship program is, in itself, an index—an initiative activated by the fellows who use local and hyperspecific instances of contemporary culture to speak to larger aesthetic, cultural, economic, and socio-political concerns. This is a series of intimate conversations with and among fellows whose work and ideas have been threaded through the Vera List Center, informing and informed by the Center over the past quarter of a century. The public dialogues evolve from private exchanges between the fellows that happened throughout the spring where they considered the interrelatedness of their individual fellowship projects with their current practice. The live event is complemented by a reader, an index that records and accounts for the generative engagements that undergird this symposium. Collectively they conjure the meaning, importance, and necessity of the interdisciplinary nature of fellowship projects today.

Stone Speaks, an exhibition of works by Jerry the Marble Faun that mark the past decade of stone carving. Jerry's works include mature iterations of sculpted creatures and animals alongside simultaneously made abstract pieces. Taking cues from lived experience, such as driving a New York taxi for 25 years and living with Big and Little Edie at Grey Gardens, his sculpting process relies on a freeform method. Jerry follows the chance of a stone’s natural properties to define each element, giving rise to a style that is at once rigorous and intuitive.

Dating, marital commitment, and married life have been reconfigured in the 21st century, such that the work of wifedom occurs in online dating sites, on reality television, in social media, and on the campaign trail.  No longer the stuff of marriage vows, these realms are now controlled by brand management and marketability. To prosper, women must appear confident, empowered, and sexually savvy.

Revered around the world for his universal verse, Pablo Neruda also left a legacy as being one of the most iconic and important resistance poets of his century. His relationship to readers and to his own writing was extraordinarily shaped by time of political crisis and authoritarianism. In our current political climate, what does Neruda give us now, both in the utility of his actual words and in his example? What might this poet’s tumultuous and influential journey through political upheavals, uprisings, and exiles offer us as we continue to shape the next chapter in our own cultural story? Mark Eisner, the author of the recently published biography of Pablo Neruda; Forrest Gander, translator of the lost Neruda poems only recently discovered; novelist, poet and translator Idra Novey; and Chilean poet, artist and filmmaker Cecilia Vicuña find some answers in the vivid details of Neruda’s life and work and in his lasting influence on generations of poets and activists.
