Workshop | Morning Fitness


One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can't be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

Conference | Prevention Activism: Advancing Historical Dialogue In Post-Conflict Settings


Prevention activism—that is, the effort to record, acknowledge, address and redress the violent past— seeks to counter nationalist myths and identities that are central ingredients of ethnic and political violence. Its goal is to deny the propensity for the future escalation of violence by acknowledging the role that the misuse of history has played in dividing societies. In other words, by enhancing public discussions about the past, prevention activism has become a central part of the efforts in post-conflict societies, as well as in democratic societies, to come to terms with their violent past. This conference seeks to explore activities that can be defined as “prevention activism”, and their academic analysis. What forms do projects and initiatives take to address past violence, and what impact have they had? These projects often range from civil society initiatives, to government-instated commissions, to the work of international bodies.

Tour | Tribeca Architecture Tour


Tour the picturesque streets and alleys that make Tribeca one of Manhattan's most architecturally memorable neighborhoods. Architectural historian Matt Postal leads a tour through several of the adjoining historic districts to view handsome examples of 19th century mercantile design, including notable cast-iron warehouses and masonry loft buildings that once served the city's import/export and food processing trades. Likely highlights include Federal-style houses, the former site of St. John's Park and freight depot, the New York Mercantile Exchange, and a Renaissance Revival-style stable built for the American Express Company. Matt Postal is an architectural historian based in Brooklyn. He teaches graduate classes on the history of New York City and its extraordinary 19th and 20th century architecture, researches and writes designation reports for the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and since 1990, leads popular and entertaining walking talks and tours throughout the five extraordinary boroughs

Gallery Talk | Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B. Heckler: Exhibition Tour


The collection of Audrey B. Heckler is emblematic of the growth of the field of self-taught art in the United States, which manifests a strong interest for African American artists, a consistent attention on American classics, a curiosity for European art brut, and a search for international discoveries. For the last twenty-seven years, Heckler has surrounded herself with excellent examples by the most significant artists associated to this art niche, among them Emery Blagdon, Aloïse Corbaz, William Edmondson, August Klett, Augustin Lesage, Martín Ramírez, Thornton Dial, and Anna Zemánková.

Staged Reading | The Tragedie of Cymbeline By William Shakespeare


The Instant Shakespeare Company performs a reading of Shakespeare's The Tragedie of Cymbeline. The Tragedie of Cymbeline or Cymbeline, King of Britain, is a play by William Shakespeare set in Ancient Britain (c. 10-14) and based on legends that formed part of the Matter of Britain concerning the early Celtic British King Cunobeline. Although listed as a tragedy in the First Folio, modern critics often classify Cymbeline as a romance or even a comedy. Like Othello and The Winter's Tale, it deals with the themes of innocence and jealousy. While the precise date of composition remains unknown, the play was certainly produced as early as 1611.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: American Queen, American Dream


Growing up in a small town in northern Massachusetts, John Arsenault began taking photographs at sixteen years of age. He moved to Boston shortly after high school, where he lived for several years before relocating to New York City to pursue a BFA at the School of Visual Arts. From the beginning, one of Arsenault's frequent subjects has been himself. Turning around his lens, he began to produce an outlandish and absurd, wild and exotic account of his life as a young, gay artist.

Opening Reception | My Hollywood Mirror: A Three-Person Exhibition


Including work by Yayoi Kusama, Chason Matthams and Rachael Tarravechia. As one sits before a vanity mirror they reflect, create, and transform. The moments spent while sitting in front of the mirror are those detached from the regular or everyday. These are instances where life seemingly becomes separated particles in which one can choose to look at or hide away from. It is reality, but with a distorted reflection, turning and inducing our attention completely to ourselves. Throughout the works within My Hollywood Mirror, are threads of constructed social, cultural and historical identities that beautifully form moments of human connection. What may seem to be a moment of voyeurism can also be recognized as playful. It is partly a recognition of ourselves, as well as the connection to others that these pieces take us to.
