Museums | (IN-PERSON) North American Portraits and Other Exhibitions


Swiss-born Karl Bodmer (1809–1893) was one of the first and most accomplished European artists to document the landscape of the North American interior and its Indigenous peoples. He was hired by the German explorer and naturalist Maximilian, Prince of Wied-Neuwied, to accompany an expedition to the northwestern reaches of the Missouri River in 1833–34. Together they traveled from Saint Louis through the tribal lands of the Omaha, Mandan, Hidatsa, and Blackfoot, among many Plains nations where Bodmer executed watercolor portraits in situ. A meticulous draftsman, Bodmer produced portraits that are notable for their sensitivity of depiction and subtle, refined brushwork. Bodmer’s precise observation of his sitters—in facial likeness, body decoration, and regalia—conveys eyewitness testimony to the lives of specific individuals and the complexity of cultural encounters.

Museums | (IN-PERSON) Jewish History: Centuries of Art


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art. Works in the collection are presented as distinctive creative expressions and as bearers of the stories of those who made, owned, used, preserved, and sometimes transformed them. The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones.

Film | (IN-PERSON, drive-in theater) My Octopus Teacher (2020): Oscar-Nominated Documentary


After years spent filming some of the planet's most dangerous animals, Craig Foster was burned out and depressed, his family relationships in turmoil. He decided to put a halt to his career to reconnect with his own roots - the magical underwater world of the kelp forest off the coast of his hometown - Cape Town, South Africa. For nearly a decade, Craig went diving daily in the icy cold waters, ditching wetsuit and scuba rig in one of the most predator dense places on earth. The common octopus he met and tracked became first his subject, then his teacher, showing him things no human had ever witnessed. Shot over eight years, with 3000 hours of footage, My Octopus Teacher documents a unique friendship, interaction and animal intelligence never seen before. Directed by Pippa Ehrlich & James Reed.

Dance Performance | Flamenco and Salsa: Short Works in Process (virtual)


Hailed as "magnificent" and "utterly compelling" by The New York Times, Nelida Tirado has received international recognition for her grace, style, and dynamics as a Spanish/flamenco and Latin dancer. Noting immense differences in the two genres stylistically, and links between the two due to histories such as Spain's colonization of Puerto Rico, Tirado connects deeply to the musical qualities of both and their capacity to reflect deeply personal themes and sentiments such as loss, love, pain, and joy.

Book Discussion | Francis Bacon: Revelations, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Authors Discuss their Biography of the Painter (virtual)


Francis Bacon played an outsized role in both 20th-century art and life--from his public emergence with his legendary Triptych in 1944 and throughout the rest of his life. Whether hanging out in London, Paris, or Tangier, Bacon was a free spirit and openly gay at a time when many others remained closeted--his exploits were as unforgettable as his images. Through hundreds of interviews, and extensive research, the Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Annalyn Swan and Mark Steven probe Bacon's life from his childhood in Ireland to his death in Madrid, and his career from his early days in design to his improbable late emergence onto the international stage as one of the great visionaries of the twentieth century. Swan and Stevens discuss Francis Bacon: Revelations, a biography more than a decade in the making, with writer Fintan O'Toole (Irish Times, New York Review of Books).
