Con artist Lawrence Jamieson is a longtime resident of a luxurious coastal resort, where he enjoys the fruits of his deceptions -- that is, until a competitor, Freddy Benson, shows up. When the new guy's lowbrow tactics impinge on his own work, Jamieson resolves to get rid of him. Confident of his own duplicitous talents, Jamieson challenges Benson to a winner-takes-all competition: whoever swindles their latest mark first can stay, while the other must leave town.

He has won five Grammy Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award, and was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 2013. Additionally, he was nominated for two Tony Awards for his musical Bright Star in 2016.

Book Discussion | The Consultant’s Compass: Navigating Success with Courage, Curiosity, and Compassion


Have you ever wondered about the enigmatic world of consultancy and whether it might be the right fit for you? If the title ‘consultant’ has ever piqued your curiosity, then this book is your passport into that realm. Drawing from firsthand experience, the author takes us on a journey from initial skepticism to eventual admiration for consultants. With a memorable encounter as the pivot, she recalls an old colleague’s dismissive description of consultants: “They ask you for your watch and then tell you the time.” Yet, her personal experience was vastly different. She met a consultant who was insightful, engaged, and who connected the dots in a way that seemed effortlessly brilliant. So, what is a consultant? Dr. Mary Cianni's book delves into the various shades of consultancy, busting myths and reshaping perceptions. While traditional definitions, like Schein’s 2016 explanation, depict consultants as mere distant experts, the book advocates a more modern and relevant perspective: Consultants as partners and helpers.

Lecture | Corporate Power in the Age of AI and the Cloud


The world’s largest corporations are predators. While some profit from extracting nature, the rest appropriate knowledge and information far and wide. They capture all sorts of intangibles produced with and by other organizations and turn them into assets that they mobilize in multiple and complementary ways to capture value, among them, from global value chains, franchises and platforms. They even steer the production of new science and technology. These resulting spheres of global control and accumulation that span beyond the assets of each big corporation are not silos. Powerful corporations co-evolve, establishing economic power relations also among themselves; unequal relations that have been exacerbated as digital technologies, led by big data and artificial intelligence, push them all to become Amazon, Microsoft and Google clients. Giants like BlackRock, Coca Cola, Disney, L’Oréal, ICBC, McDonalds, Nestlé, Pfizer, Siemens, Toyota, TSMC, Visa, Walmart and many more became active players in the harvesting and analysis of data with artificial intelligence by relying on Big Tech cloud services. All the former are frenemies of and strategically subordinate to Big Tech in order to crunch big data to control those further below. Failing in building their corporate digital twin means losing grounds at a time when precisely Big Tech are entering every sector, from healthcare to finance.

Talk | A Future in Ruins, Or, How To Make Theater After the End of the World


We seem to have arrived at the end--be it the end of democracy, of humanity, or of a livable planet. Living under this impression, theatre makers have started to question theatre's ability to still be relevant in our present and have begun to search for new aesthetics and modes of production vis-?-vis the experience of end-times. This talk focuses on theatrical aesthetics that have started to evolve in the German-language theatrical landscape since the 1970s as a reaction to the experience of living at the end of the world. Analyzing the theatre of Heiner M?ller, Elfriede Jelinek, and others, Teresa Kovacs will sketch the beginning of a 'theatre of the void' that understands catastrophe not as an endpoint after which there is mere nothingness, but as a realm of potential and possibility. Such a theatre, Kovacs argues, allows interesting insights into how to find radical futurities in the midst of a planet in ruins. Speaker Teresa Kovacs is Assistant Professor at the Department of Germanic Studies at Indiana University.

Book Discussion | Climate Capitalism: Winning the Race to Zero Emissions and Solving the Crisis of Our Age


Our age will be defined by the climate emergency. But contrary to the doomist narrative that’s taken hold, the world has already begun deploying the solutions needed to deal with it. On a journey across five continents, Akshat Rathi's Climate Capitalism tracks the unlikely heroes driving the fight against climate change. From the Chinese bureaucrat who did more to make electric cars a reality than Elon Musk to the Indian entrepreneur showing how to deploy solar on a tight budget, we meet the people working to scale technologies that are finally able to bend the emissions curve. Through stories that bring people, policy and technology together, Akshat Rathi reveals how the green economy is not only possible, but profitable. This inspiring blend of business, science, and history provides the framework for ensuring that future generations can live in prosperity and that the wheels of progress don’t falter.

Book Discussion | Fifth Avenue--Architecture and Society: History of America's Street of Dreams


Fifth Avenue, America's 'Street of Dreams,' embodies New York's evolving architectural, urban, and social history. Present on the 1807 Commissioners' map emerging from a country road, then in the proposed grid plan of 1811 as one of the major boulevards, Fifth Avenue by the end of the 19th century had become synonymous with a lavish fashionable life, grand mansions, and services catering to the wealthy. As in her previous books, The Villard Houses and Triumvirate: McKim Mead & White: Art, Architecture, Scandal and Class in America's Golden Age, Mosette Broderick gives life to the glamorous stages of New York society. In her book, she also tracks the street's shifting fortunes as fashion, hotels, and apartment towers bring a new skyline to the elite environs.

From former editor of New York magazine Adam Moss presents a collection of illuminating conversations examining the very personal, rigorous, complex, and elusive work of making art. What is the work of art? In this guided tour inside the artist’s head, Adam Moss traces the evolution of transcendent novels, paintings, jokes, movies, songs, and more. Weaving conversations with some of the most accomplished artists of our time together with the journal entries, napkin doodles, and sketches that were their tools, Moss breaks down the work—the tortuous paths and artistic decisions—that led to great art. From first glimmers to second thoughts, roads not taken, crises, breakthroughs, on to one triumphant finish after another.

Discussion | What Makes It Italian?: Mixed Media (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group. The fourth encounter will focus on Mixed Media (part 2): Composer Francesco Bianchi (1752 - 1810) with sculptor Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822) When are marble sculpture - and music - all about the surface, and does this make them superficial? How can our understanding of italianita? in music be informed by Italian sculpture? The insubstantial nature of musical materials - mere vibrations that move through the air, imperceptible to sight and touch - creates in us a longing for an analog made of solid material. In sculpture we have just such an analog: run your hand across the carved wood; feel the heat radiating from the bronze; watch the light play off the marble surface. Find the substance of Italian music by exploring its relationship to the substance/s of sculpture, one medium at a time.

Film | Free Women (2017): Feminism and the Italian Resistance


Through valuable archive material and the real voices of female partisans, this film tells the story of the role of young women - most of them teenagers - at the time of the Italian Resistance. This period marked the birth of feminism in Italy and in other European Countries, where the struggle for liberation was also the fight for female emancipation and the pursuit of freedom and equality, in the family and in the workplace. How did they participate in the Resistance and in these political battles? What happened after the Liberation? Were expectations fulfilled and promises maintained? Their reflections, lucid, ironic, sometimes bitter, reveal a piece of our forgotten history. They make us reflect on the role of women today and on the conquests yet to be achieved.

Poetry Reading | To Leave for Our Own Country: Debut Poetry


John Linstrom will read a selection of poems from his new book, alongside readings by outstanding fellow poets Louis Bury, Mariposa Fernández, and Kendra Sullivan, all of whom have written about climate change in a genre that, on the whole, has been slow to explore it. After the readings, Sonya Posmentier, Associate Professor of English at NYU, will moderate a discussion and Q&A with the poets, exploring the role of poetry in activating civic engagement with climate change and social justice. Light refreshments will be served, and books will be available for purchase and signing.

Book Discussion | Why We Die: The New Science of Aging and the Quest for Immortality (in-person and online)


Nobel Prize-winning author Venki Ramakrishnan and Titia de Lange, Director of the Anderson Center for Cancer Research at The Rockefeller University in a discussion that will unveil the strides science has made in understanding aging and longevity--and Ramakrishnan's new book. Unraveling the universal human fear of death, Ramakrishnan traces our historical attempts to evade its inevitability--from religious afterlife beliefs to the existential realization in childhood that all we cherish is short-lived. He guides readers through the cutting-edge research shaping our understanding of mortality and raises the tantalizing possibility of extending our lifespan exponentially. As he navigates the recent breakthroughs in altering physiology to extend life, he contemplates life, and the biological purpose of death, and probes the social and ethical implications of pursuing immortality.

Performance | The Perspective Project: Short Theater Works


The Outside/In ensemble creates community, connection and supports self-expression, providing rituals for success in the form of twice annual performances. Please come out and support the incredible ensemble as they present The Perspective Project. What is Outside/In? Stella Adler Arts Justice Division, created in 2001, identified a new strategic goal in 2013: to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Arts Justice soon became the leading arts program provider at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. As students were released from jail, we wanted the program to support them during their re-entry transition. Outside/In was created to allow students to continue the vital work that began inside rehabilitation and to support their transition to daily civilian life. Today Outside/In is a transitional company of 100 members who create new, short works inspired by their personal experiences and current social issues. Returning citizens who have previously been incarcerated and people in residential addiction recovery programs are eligible for Outside/In. Conservatory students and alumni who have a deeply vested interest in art, theater and social good may volunteer to support the ensemble.
