Conference | A Second Gilded Age? Historical Parallels, Differences, Lessons


Are we living in a "Second Gilded Age”? Journalists, scholars, and reformers are increasingly using this phrase to describe the political economy which has developed over the last forty years or so, especially since the Great Recession. But historical analogies can have their perils. Might comparing our post-industrial, globalized era with the late industrial period obscure, as well as inform, how we understand and contest economic inequality today? With this question in mind, a host of experts in various disciplines examine what insights, and lessons for reform, might be drawn by considering the "first Gilded Age" as like our time, and what risks are posed by an undifferentiated comparison. Three panels will identify and compare for each period (1) the economic factors driving inequality, (2) the political factors which created or exacerbated those market dynamics, and (3) the effectiveness of various policies in leveling those inequalities, and what social movements and political coalitions might be required to enact them.

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

Opening Reception | Julian Stanczak: Paintings that Vibrate and Glow


Fueled by his own personal history of shifting geography, the perceptual effect of one of Julian Stanczak’s paintings can range from the most subtle, vibrating glow to an electrical, rhythmic oscillation. Stanczak’s reverence for color came from a desire to translate the drama and power of nature into a universal impression. His canvases were created through a complex process of tape masks in which colors were systematically added and unveiled in layers. While incredibly methodical, Stanczak worked alone on his canvases without the aid of preliminary sketches, relying solely on his own vision of a finished work.

Discussion | What Shapes Public Opinion and Drug Policy?


Drug use and addiction have long been treated as a crime in the U.S., but with record numbers of people dying of overdoses and legally prescribed medications implicated in many of those deaths attitudes are beginning to shift. Yet decades of media coverage and laws reflecting a drug war mentality may take longer to change. Panelists will discuss how art, media, research, and advocacy can influence how we respond to problematic drug use—through treatment, harm reduction, and other services—and help people rebuild their lives after addiction. Moderated by: Susan Stellin, MPH - Reporter, researcher, and adjunct professor Panelists: -- Graham MacIndoe, Photographer and assistant professor of Photography -- Tracie Gardner, Vice President of Policy Advocacy, Legal Action Center -- Pedro Mateu-Gelabert, PhD, Principal Investigator and Deputy Director, Institute of Infectious Disease Research, National Development Research Institutes, Inc

Author Reading | No One Man Should Have All That Power: How Rasputins Manipulate the World


Author Amos Barshad has long been fascinated by the powerful, but not by elected officials or natural leaders—he’s interested in the scheming advisors, the dark figures who wield power in the shadows. As Barshad illustrates in No One Man Should Have All That Power, the natural habitat of these manipulators is not only political backrooms, it’s anywhere power dynamics exist—from Hollywood to drug cartels, from recording studios to the NFL. Barshad has written for The New York Times, The New Yorker, Pitchfork, Bleacher Report, GQ, Slate, and others.

Concert | Carnegie Hall Citywide Night Concert


This four-hour finale to the Carnegie Citywide concert series features Matuto, Eileen Ivers, and Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas. Matuto, “country boy” in Brazilian slang, has been described as “weird and wonderful … unorthodox and delightful” by JazzTimes magazine. You’ll hear why when this lively quartet takes Brazilian folk music and shakes it up with the flatpicking guitars and fiery fiddles of American bluegrass to create a musical experience Matuto likens to “Brazilian Carnival in the Appalachian Mountains.” Anchored by the guitar of Clay Ross and accordion of Rob Curto, Matuto’s joyous explorations of every folk, world, and jazz style are invigorating. Consider every possibility for what’s exciting and daring in Irish fiddle playing and Eileen Ivers surpasses them. This Grammy Award winner, Emmy nominated, and nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion has played with major orchestras around the globe as well as such luminaries as Sting, the Chieftains, Patti Smith, and countless others. Called “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” (The New York Times), she is deeply rooted in tradition while remaining dedicated to exploring new possibilities for the instrument. Zydeco, that intoxicating accordion-driven South Louisiana-rooted blend of Cajun, Afro-Caribbean, and African-American popular music, burns brightly when Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas perform. Nathan Williams’s accordion playing sets the boisterous tone while his brother Dennis’s jazz-tinged guitar brings a unique flavor to the music. Bass, drums, and rubboard add extra spice to this Louisiana-styled musical gumbo for a performance that will get your feet moving, fingers snapping, and heart pounding.

A volcanologist with the U.S. Geological Survey will describe this summer’s intense volcanic unrest and eruption at one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and the highest-threat volcano in the United States, Kılauea Volcano on the island of Hawaii. Historically unprecedented rates of lava effusion destroyed hundreds of structures, while 40 km away at the volcano’s summit, damaging earthquakes continued for months as the summit progressively collapsed before scientists’ astonished eyes. Tina Neal will share highlights of the science behind the volcanic event and the complex incident response, a multi-agency effort to keep people safe.

Discussion | We, the Robots: Freedom in the Era of Artificial Intelligence


AI (Artificial Intelligence) has the potential to revolutionize many areas of our lives, from healthcare to warfare, and from entertainment to labor. While it promises significant improvements to our day-to-day lives — for instance, in the field of healthcare, where it could lead to better diagnostics, and individually targeted drug design, as well as in the management of transport systems and electricity grids, or the simplification of legal and financial paperwork— there are fears that robots and AI technology could render many jobs obsolete. But as the space for human error becomes more limited, will the space for human freedom also diminish? The conversation between Hod Lipson, co-author of the award winning book Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing as well as Driverless: Intelligent Cars and the Road Ahead, and Michalis Vazirgiannis, École Polytechnique Professor and big data mining specialist, is presented as part of the Alliance Series at Albertine. The discussion will be moderated by Stephen Williams.

Author Reading | Pickle's Progress: Twisted Path to Love


Marcia Butler’s debut novel is a fierce, mordant New York story about the twisted path to love. Over the course of five weeks, identical twin brothers, one wife, a dog, and a bereaved young woman collide with each other to comical and sometimes horrifying effect. Everything is questioned and tested as they jockey for position and try to maintain the status quo. Love is the poison, the antidote, the devil and, ultimately, the hero.

Author Reading | The New Me: Hollow Life


Thirty-year-old Millie just can’t pull it together. She spends her days working a thankless temp job and her nights alone in her apartment, fixating on all the ways she might change her situation–her job, her attitude, her appearance, her life. Then she watches TV until she falls asleep, and the cycle begins again. When the possibility of a full-time job offer arises, it seems to bring the better life she’s envisioning within reach. But with it also comes the paralyzing realization, lurking just beneath the surface, of how hollow that vision has become. Halle Butler is the author of Jillian. She has been named a National Book Award Foundation “5 Under 35” honoree and a Granta Best Young American Novelist.
