Workshop | Chinese Traditional Painting


Learn the techniques of Chinese Traditional Painting! Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guóhuà, meaning "national" or "native painting", as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century. Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black ink or coloured pigments; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made are paper and silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls, such as hanging scrolls or handscrolls. Traditional painting can also be done on album sheets, walls, lacquerware, folding screens, and other media. Please bring your own brushes; paper and ink will be provided.

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."

Dance Performance | Baroque Night: Dances From The Salon Of The Duchesse Du Maine


Louise Bénédicte de Bourbon (1676–1753) was the daughter of Henri Jules de Bourbon and Anne Henriette of Bavaria. As a member of the reigning House of Bourbon, she was a princesse du sang. Her arranged marriage to the Duc du Maine (legitimized son of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan) was not a happy one. However, he did not interfere with her revels in politics and the arts, and her popular salon at the Hotel du Maine as well as at the Château de Sceaux. In fact, the Duchess du Maine was known as a legendary insomniac and renowned for her nocturnal fêtes at Sceaux. Her “court” was the opposite of that of Louis XIV. He was the sun, she was the moon. Upon his death, his wishes for the regency were not carried out and she was involved in a plot to overthrow the ruling royals. Catherine Turocy will present a power-point lecture emphasizing the artistic side of the duchesse as a background to the dances to be demonstrated by The New York Baroque Dance Company members Caroline Copeland and Roberto Lara. These dances include both social dances of the ball and dances to Nicolas Bernier’s music for Apollon, Comus et La Nuit, a work presented at one of the evening entertainments at Sceaux. The New York Baroque Dance Company produces "historically accurate" performances and also "reinterprets Baroque choreography." More than thirty opera productions have been commissioned for the NYBDC around the world. Productions include period costumes and masks.

Discussion | From Plaza Mayor to Washington Square: Spanish Republican Exiles at NYU


Eighty years ago almost to the day (April 1, 1939), the Spanish Civil War was officially declared over. One of its many tragic outcomes was the exile of as many as 500,000 people. Some of those fleeing would die during the exodus, or shortly after like Antonio Machado. Others, like Jorge Semprún, would survive only to be sent later on to Nazi concentration camps. Many others did their best to start new lives in France, North Africa or the Americas, almost always dreaming of someday returning to a free Spain. In places like Chile, Mexico, Cuba or Argentina, the contributions made by these Spanish Republican exiles to the eventual defeat of fascism, and to the cultures and economies of their adopted countries, are relatively well known. Fewer people are aware, however, of the remarkable legacy left by the Spanish Republican exiles in the United States. In these two roundtable discussions, they will talk about this legacy, focusing on the impact that the exiles had on the intellectual life of New York University and, more specifically, on how they influenced the study of Spanish art, culture and history at the university. Participants: -- María Dueñas (Visiting author) -- James D. Fernández (NYU, FAS) -- Juan José Herrera de la Muela (Consulate General of Spain in New York) -- Alexander Nagel (NYU, IFA) -- Edward Sullivan (NYU, IFA) -- Marisol Tellería

Lecture | The Influence of Jewish Food on Israeli Cuisine


Why has gefilte fish, herring and bagels virtually disappeared from the new Israeli cuisine ? What foods did Jews living in holy cities like Jerusalem, Safed and Tiberias in the 19th century eat? Why do you find couscous and hummus in almost every home in Israel?    The State of Israel is a young country situated in a geo-cultural space with a rich and conflict-filled history. The kitchens brought by Jewish immigrants from different communities around the world are one of the main influences of the new Israeli cuisine. This is  a fascinating journey to discuss how historical, social, and political factors shaped the culture of  the current Israeli cuisine led by, Ronit Vered, a researcher of food culture, journalist, and author of food and travel books.

Lecture | What Does the Language of Crisis Tell Us About the Contemporary World?


Should a difference be made between a world of crises and a world in crisis? This lecture will be based on a series of empirical studies conducted in the past decade in an attempt to define a method for a critical theory of crisis. The ubiquity of the language of crisis today tells us something about the actuality and the imaginary of contemporary societies. One can regard it literally as a sign of our times: it signals something important about the present. Yet, we cannot take for granted this representation of our world. Speaker Didier Fassin is James D. Wolfensohn Professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and a Director of Studies at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris.

Author Reading | Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland


From award-winning New Yorker staff writer Patrick Radden Keefe, a stunning, intricate narrative about a notorious killing in Northern Ireland and its devastating repercussions In December 1972, Jean McConville, a thirty-eight-year-old mother of ten, was dragged from her Belfast home by masked intruders, her children clinging to her legs. They never saw her again. Her abduction was one of the most notorious episodes of the vicious conflict known as The Troubles. Everyone in the neighborhood knew the I.R.A. was responsible. But in a climate of fear and paranoia, no one would speak of it. In 2003, five years after an accord brought an uneasy peace to Northern Ireland, a set of human bones was discovered on a beach.

Book Discussion | Goodbye to Tenth Street: Novel on the New York Art Scene


An evening in celebration of Goodbye to Tenth Street, the final book—and first novel—by critic, art historian, and beloved Artists Space founder Irving Sandler. Based on his experience in the New York art world, from the death of Jackson Pollock in 1956 to the emergence of Andy Warhol in 1962, Sandler invents a tight-knit community of artists, critics, curators, and gallery owners, where connections are forged and betrayed, ideologies clash, and relationships blossom and implode at dizzying speed. With the arrival of Pop Art as the newest avant-garde, Sandler reveals shifting attitudes in the art world, and in particular, the conflict between different generations of artists and the necessity of periodic upheavals to sustain art's relevance. Sandler's novel offers an intimate view into the personalities and events that colored this period of American art history.

Many of us are facing unprecedented attacks on our democracy, our privacy, and our hard-won civil rights. If you’re Black in the US, this is not new. As Colorlines editors Akiba Solomon and Kenrya Rankin show, Black Americans subvert and resist life-threatening forces as a matter of course.  In How We Fight White Supremacy: A Field Guide to Black Resistance, leading organizers, artists, journalists, comedians, and filmmakers offer wisdom on how they fight White supremacy. It’s a must-read for anyone new to resistance work, and for the next generation of leaders building a better future.

Talk | Artist Talk: Distance and Perception in the Wake of Climate Change


In conjunction with her exhibition I Can Drink the Distance, artist Torkwase Dyson will deliver a free, public lecture about her work. Dyson, the Spring 2019 Robert Gwathmey Chair in Architecture and Art, was born in Chicago, Illinois, and spent her developmental years between North Carolina and Mississippi. Traversing these regions helped her develop a fundamental sensitivity towards urban development, southern landscape, and black spatial justice. During her years at Tougaloo College, where she majored in sociology and double minored in social work and fine art, she began to examine the spatial dynamics of black history and how these histories were connected geographically.

Lecture | Capitalocene, Waste, Race and Gender


Neoliberal capitalism produces waste—11 million tons a day according to the World Bank—and fabricates humans as waste. Studies have shown that waste disposal is racially distributed across the world: tons are shipped to the Global South adding to pollution of the soil and to health problems. The world of neoliberalism requires cleaning spaces—offices, banks, hotels, airports—for it to function.  It leads to a new division between clean/dirty: who has the right to green spaces, clean streets, clean water, spaces for rest, and who is denied these rights. Françoise Vergès will look at these accelerated transformations and analyze their gender, race and class combinations. Speaker Françoise Vergès is an antiracist decolonial feminist, a curator, and a writer. She has published on Frantz Fanon, Aimé Césaire, the ambiguities of abolitionism, colonial and postcolonial psychiatry, slavery remembrance, the processes of creolization in the Indian Ocean, and new forms of colonization and racialization.

Slide Lecture | Comics, Color and 'Ben Day Dots'


"Roy Lichtenstein’s success story began when he painted enlarged versions of comic book images in the 1960s, including their colored dots —which he famously called “Ben Day dots.” Scholars of both Lichtenstein and comics have previously failed to discover how and why the comics’ original colors and dots were created. Beyond color, the dots also have a surprising part to play in the wider history of the medium." Speaker Guy Lawley will share his own new research, with vivid examples from the newspaper strips of the 1890s to the 1930s—when comic books abandoned genuine Ben Day dots for faster cheaper methods—and onward.

Master Class | Percussion


Jonathan Singer, xylophone; Jonathan Haas, percussion. Jonathan Haas is an American orchestral timpanist. The New York Times wrote: "Wherever one finds a percussion instrument waiting to be rubbed, shook, struck or strummed, he is probably nearby, ready to fulfill his duties with consummate expertise ... he is a masterful percussionist." He has been profiled and reviewed over the years in the Los Angeles Times, Seattle Post Intelligencer, Sydney Morning Herald, and more. Percussionist Jonathan Singer has been praised for his "superb four-mallet technique" (New York Times) and described as an "artistic assault on the sensory order of nitrous oxide." His solo appearances include performances with the Detroit Symphony and Grammy-winning Nighthawks. As the leader of the Brooklyn-based novelty band, Xylopholks, Singer has performed across the United States, India, Japan, Brazil, and Canada and on the stages of Alice Tully Hall, City Center, 92nd Y, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
