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." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Conference | Unknowability: How Do We Know What Cannot Be Known?


From the earliest moments of humanity’s search for answers and explanations, we have grappled with the unknowable, that which we are unable or not permitted to know. What does the history of the unknowable look like? What are the questions once thought to be unanswerable that have been answered? Are there enduring unknowables and if so, what are they? This conference affords a rare opportunity for scholars from different fields to engage with each other and with the general public on this issue, particularly while we are living in what some might call a post-truth world. At a time when the distinction between what is true and what is not has become increasingly problematic, focusing attention on how we know what we cannot know has become essential.

Talk | Writing Home: Diasporic Language and the Poetics of Immigrant Memory


“Home” as both a place and a utopian ideal is represented on the page out of necessity for the immigrant writer, a literary construction forged from equal parts myth and memory. This talk and reading will explore the manifestation of immigration as an ongoing psychic experience via language, and its power as a supremely generative force. A series of touchstones, ranging from poet Don Mee Choi’s multilingual work, to Carolyn Forché’s ideas on political witness, will complicate the discussion of literary remembrance, the textual self, and poetry as the ultimate act of autography. Speaker Wendy Xu is the author of Phrasis (Fence Books Ottoline Prize, 2017), named one of the 10 Best Poetry Books of 2017 by The New York Times, and one of the 13 Best Poetry Books of 2017 by BuzzFeed.

Lecture | On the Globalized Banks of the Future: The Revolutions of Ciudad Juárez


Currently ranked among the most violent cities in the world, Ciudad Juárez has been portrayed historically either as the urban center of a problematic but celebrated cultural hybridity, or as an expansive slum of extreme poverty and senseless violence, in particular with the pervasive horrors of decades of femicides and drug-related murders. Out of these two radically different interpretative poles, a common understanding is articulated: that the people of Ciudad Juárez are defiant of the late capitalist, post-industrial social order, but at the same time they are its immediate victims. Speaker Oswaldo Zavala is professor of contemporary Latin American literature and culture at the College of Staten Island. He is the author of Drug Cartels Do Not Exist. Narco-trafficking and Culture in Mexico.

Opening Reception | Every Day Is Friday: The Fabric of Time Unravels


This will be the artist's first solo exhibition with the gallery. Shane Walsh's paintings instantly seem like specters from the past; possibly configurations reminiscent of Frank Stella sculptures populated by Lichtenstein-esque brushstrokes. Within these works, the fabric of time unravels, and the past seeps in through a painted "collage" of hyperbolic gestures and reticulated squares atop airbrushed grounds. Walsh's vibrant palette and cut-and-paste aesthetic lends itself to 80's and 90's pop-culture references such as MTV, Garbage Pail Kids and skateboard graphics.

Discussion | Diagnosing the Drug War and the Prescription for Force


In 1983, then Peruvian President Fernando Belaúnde Terry coined the term “narcoterrorism” in response to the violence perpetrated by the Shining Path, but it was soon adopted into the lexicon of the international community and applied far more widely. By diagnosing the business of drugs as a terrorist affliction, the United States and others have transformed a prohibited trade into a transnational security threat. This is most fully realized in prescribing a militarized solution, a “war on drugs. Yet this approach to drugs poses a greater danger to security. Speakers: Omar Tejada-Perez, Expert in Security Studies Diego Garcia, Senior Program Officer for Open Society Global Drug Policy Program Peter J. Hoffman, Assistant Professor, Graduate Program in International Affairs Following the event a reception will be held.

Author Reading | Ugliness and Judgment: On Architecture in the Public Eye


In his new book, Timothy Hyde considers the role of aesthetic judgment—and its concern for ugliness—in architectural debates and their resulting social effects across three centuries of British architectural history. From eighteenth-century ideas about Stonehenge to Prince Charles’s opinions about the National Gallery, he offers a new story of aesthetic judgment, where arguments about architectural ugliness do not pertain solely to buildings or assessments of style, but intrude into other spheres of civil society.

Discussion | Networks: From Biology to Society


Networks have been used to describe interactions between molecules in biological systems, between people in social systems, and even between parts of the brain that form an individual’s personality. Do the same rules apply to such networks at different levels of organization? What can we learn from one level of organization to help understand other systems?  A panel of experts from different disciplines discusses these exciting questions, led by Larry Liebovitch (professor of physics and psychology, Queens College), featuring Lev Guzmán-Vargas (Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Mexico) and Dana Weinberg (professor of sociology, Queens College).

Lecture | Pathways and Footsteps in Detention: Migrants' and Prisoners' Translucency


How do female prisoners escape their cells in order to be seen at the borders of nations, institutions and disciplines? How do obscured migrants and prisoners leave traces within systems oriented to repress and disappear them? Professor Marisa Belausteguigoitia explores these questions through the trope of translucence, that combination of light and shadow that shows the contours of an obscured object without rendering it fully clear. Through videos and images that tell the story of how prisoners in Mexico City escaped their cells and came together with migrants at the US border, Belausteguigoitia illuminates their conjoined presence, voices, and forms of resistance against the conjoined violence in Mexico and the United States today.

Author Reading | This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom


A profound, original, and accessible book that offers a new secular vision of how we can lead our lives. Ranging from fundamental existential questions to the most pressing social issues of our time, This Life shows why our commitment to freedom and democracy should lead us beyond both religion and capitalism. In this groundbreaking book, the philosopher Martin Hägglund challenges our received notions of faith and freedom. The faith we need to cultivate, he argues, is not a religious faith in eternity but a secular faith devoted to our finite life together. He shows that all spiritual questions of freedom are inseparable from economic and material conditions. What ultimately matters is how we treat one another in this life, and what we do with our time together.

Concert | Haitian-American Folk Singer-Songwriter


Hailed as “a cunning interpreter and arranger” by NPR, Haitian-American folk singer-songwriter Leyla McCalla is equally at ease with English, French, and Haitian Creole. Deeply influenced by traditional Creole, Cajun, and Haitian music, as well as by American jazz and folk, her music is at once earthy, elegant, soulful, and witty. A classically trained cellist, she is perhaps best known for her work with the Grammy-winning African-American string band The Carolina Chocolate Drops, but her virtuosity also shines in her critically acclaimed solo albums.
