Conference | Lessons from the Ground: Framing and Interpreting Human Rights in the Balkans


This symposium brings together activists, practitioners, and scholars to reflect upon critical human rights-and research-oriented issues that receive less international attention but are well-known locally in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The first is the long-term traumatic as well as professional impact that the country’s history, people, and culture have had upon those who have worked there for any period of time. A new generation of activists and survivors, both at home and abroad, are also asserting more control over the existing wartime narratives—either by reinforcing and/or or pushing against them creating new tensions. Finally, the Bosnian research landscape has been fundamentally changed by the hundreds of analyses with and about the population over the years which has important implications for the kind of nuanced scholarship that is sorely needed but increasingly difficult to conduct.

Conference | Erasures: Excision and Indelibility in the Art of the Americas


What can and cannot be erased? This question emerges when monuments are destroyed, cultural artifacts vanish, or the faces of the disappeared continue to interrogate government violence and corruption. Though the recent fire at the Museu Nacional in Rio de Janeiro resulted in the devastating loss of approximately twenty million objects, the impact goes beyond physical destruction. Marina Silva, Brazil’s former Minister of the Environment, went so far as to call the fire a “lobotomy of the Brazilian memory.” Tragedies and subsequent actions to confront them shape this year’s theme. Erasure is commonly understood as an obliteration of content or removal of all traces, often forcefully. And yet, as demonstrated by Horacio Zabala’s burned maps from the 1970s or Jacques Bedel’s erased Cordillera (1972), visual art maintains an uncanny ability to demonstrate resilience in the void of visible content. Erasure can manifest through strategies of elimination, cleansing, or effacement as aesthetic practice, or it might instead emerge in issues surrounding medium, as in the ephemerality of site-specific or performative work.

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.

Lecture | Populists, Reformers, Russian Soft Power and War: Ukraine's 2019 Elections


Five years Ukraine after the Euromaidan Revolution of Dignity, Ukraine held presidential in March and will hold parliamentary elections in October 2019. The elections will not witness the traditional battle between 'pro-Western' and 'pro-Russian' forces because 16% of traditionally pro-Russian voters and 27 election districts are under Russian occupation in the Crimea and Donbas, the Party of Regions no longer exists, and the Communist Party is banned.  Russia’s annexation of the Crimea, the on-going Russian-Ukrainian war in the Donbas and Azov Sea will provide the background to an election that will resemble those held those in Europe and the US where populists battle against reformers. With Russian soft power in Ukraine in terminal decline, as seen in the emergence of a Ukrainian Orthodox Church independent of Moscow, the 2019 elections will be a test if Ukraine's reforms and European integration will continue and prove to be irreversible by the 2024 elections. Speaker Taras Kuzio received a BA in Economics from the University of Sussex, an MA in Soviet and East European Area Studies from the University of London, and a PhD in Political Science from the University of Birmingham, England, UK.

Lecture | Creole Miami: Black Arts in the Magic City


What would it mean to simultaneously construct—spatially, intimately and aesthetically—an archive of black Miami’s intellectual and artistic formation? Though not often recognized in larger national and scholarly conversations about art, especially Black art, Miami has produced generations of dynamic practitioners. Of course, with the advent in 2002 of Miami Art Basel as well as Perez Art Museum Miami, and Institute for Contemporary Art joining the older institution of Museum of Contemporary Art, a discourse emerges about Miami’s multicultural visual art consumption. Less explored, however, is how this city—its landscape, institutions, racial, ethnic and cultural sensibilities—has shaped the intellectual and creative foundations of the most acclaimed black creative artists working in the US today. This talk will discuss a few of these artists in relation to the socio-cultural context of Miami.   Speaker Donette Francis directs the American Studies Program at the University of Miami, where she is Associate Professor of English and founding member of the Hemispheric Caribbean Studies Collective.

Lecture | Expert Assessments of Environmental Understanding: What Do They Actually Produce?


Environmental assessments like those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the National Research Council, assemble groups of experts to review, evaluate and assess, and ultimately, by writing reports, render judgment on the current state of knowledge about a wide range of fields that are relevant to public policy. In contrast to earlier research on the factors determining success of an assessment in terms of recognition and uptake by the policy community, an ongoing study begun in 2009 examines the process by which experts in such assessments reach conclusions on matters of fact and uncertainty. Over time, the project has employed archival research, interviews, and ethnographic observations. Results of the phase one of the project, using the first two of these approaches, were recently published in Discerning Experts: The Practices of Scientific Assessment for Environmental Policy, which focuses on assessments of acid rain, the West Antarctic ice sheet, and ozone depletion that took place over a 40-year period. Among the questions addressed are the role of institutional factors (e.g., the way authors are chosen or assigned to particular topics) in determining the judgments rendered by assessment authors; the circumstances under which assessments, rather than merely reviewing existing understanding, produce new knowledge; the management of expert bias in assessments; and the influence of assessments on the broader basic research agenda of some fields. Speaker Michael Oppenheimer is Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs at Princeton University.

Author Reading | All the Nations Under Heaven: A Close Look At The Cultural Diversity Of New York


In certain neighborhoods of New York City, an immigrant may live out his or her entire life without even becoming fluent in English. From the Russians of Brooklyn's Brighton Beach to the Dominicans of Manhattan's Washington Heights, New York is arguably the most ethnically diverse city in the world. Yet no wide-ranging ethnic history of the city has ever been attempted. In All the Nations Under Heaven, Frederick Binder and David Reimers trace the shifting tides of New York's ethnic past, from its beginnings as a Dutch trading outpost to the present age where Third World immigration has given the population a truly global character. All the Nations Under Heaven explores the processes of cultural adaptation to life in New York, giving a lively account of immigrants new and old, and of the streets and neighborhoods they claimed and transformed.

Opening Reception | Vivian Suter: Paintings


Comprised exclusively of mixed media paintings, this show furthers Suter’s singular style of installation, in which canvases flood the gallery space, creating an enveloping mise-en-scène of visual characters that intermingle, juxtapose, and cavort with one another. Composed individually, the works on view – through their unique display – inevitably become an interconnected painterly biome, openly inviting gallery-goers into the artist’s cosmos. Vivian Suter was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina; studied in Basel, Switzerland; and currently lives and works in Panajachel, Guatemala. Solo exhibitions of the artist’s work have been held at numerous international institutions, including: The Power Plant, Toronto; Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; Jewish Museum, New York; Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland; Kunstmuseum Olten, Switzerland; and Kunstmuseum des Kantons Thurgau, Kartause Ittingen, Warth, Switzerland. In the coming year, solo installations of Suter’s paintings will be staged at MUDAM, Luxembourg; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Massachusetts; and Tate Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Lecture | Beyond Mourning?: A Reading of Eugenio Montale's Arletta Poems


Focusing on Eugenio Montale’s ciclo di Arletta, in particular" La casa dei doganieri [The Custom Guards’ House]," this lecture will discuss the nature of the poetic subject’s mourning for Arletta and how it challenges traditional views on elegy. Mourning in Montale’s poetry is intermittent but, nevertheless, unending. By considering the relationship between Montale’s poetry and mourning from the Derridean perspective of demi-deuil [half mourning], the lecture will offer an original contribution to the study of Montale. Speaker Dr. Adele Bardazzi is the Laming Junior Fellow at The Queen’s College, University of Oxford.

Book Discussion | Portraits Without Frames: Glimpses into the Lives of Soviet Artists


Portraits Without Frames offers fifty shrewd and moving glimpses into the lives of Soviet writers, composers, and artists caught between the demands of art and politics. Some of the subjects—like Anna Akhmatova, Isaac Babel, Andrey Platonov, and Dmitry Shostakovich—are well-known, others less so. All are evoked with great subtlety and vividness, as is the fraught and dangerous time in which they lived. Composed in free verse of deceptively artless simplicity, Lev Ozerov’s portraits are like nothing else in Russian poetry. Editor and translator Boris Dralyuk and translator Irina Mashinski will read from Ozerov’s remarkable portraits and discuss the author’s life and work.

Author Reading | Richard Roe: Name Withheld


Richard Roe is Tyler Coburn's fictional memoir of a legal person. The name is one of the oldest used in English law when the real name of someone is withheld, or when a corpse can’t be identified. Richard Roe is a known unknown, a one-size-fits-all, a potentially everyone and actually no one. Divided into seven fragmentary sections, this memoir gives voice to the legal fictions that influence terms of selfhood, politics and economics. On the occasion of this launch, Coburn will read excerpts from the book exploring concepts of personhood from legal, psychological, and metaphysical realms.
