Although world famous, Harlem may be New York's best kept secret with some of the city's best architecture, food, music and people. Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

Book Reading |
Cultural hybridity, identity negotiation, and contested language politics are all hallmarks of transitional experiences affecting postcolonial societies. Examining major works of literature produced in Ukraine during the first two decades after independence, this pioneering study situates the post-independence literary process within a grid of specific contexts, focusing especially on how regionalism, gender and language issues, as well as social marginalization and popular culture, are reflected in literary works following the collapse of the Soviet empire.

Opening Reception |
Peter Agron: melancholia - This is a selection of black and white gelatin silver prints. All images created from 35mm film negatives on Ilford Art paper and toned in tea. Lawrence Gottesman: How to Disappear Completely - "There are no people visible, but their traces are everywhere: in a basement light left on; in a locked gate; in each orderly and oppressively constructed structure. These artifacts tell us more than images of people possibly could, but essential gaps remain. These absences are critical, as much as rests are needed for a series of notes to go from mere tones to music. Listen carefully." Alain Licari: Both Sides (pictured) - "In Both Sides, several diptychs compare two spaces: the beaches of San Diego (United States) and of Tijuana (Mexico) separated by a wall. On each side of this physical border, I searched out correspondences and differences of these geographically continuous spaces. This comparison inaugurates a series of reflections, spawning realizations that play at the edge of this unsettling frontier." James McCracken: American Beauty - "All of my pictures --- whether involving some planned effort or simply taken 'on the fly' --- reflect my immediate environment and a particular social relationship or multiple, interwoven relationships. And, the pictures represent --- are synonymous to --- my emotional response to this environment/social sphere. Each picture has its own backstory, based on my relationship with the subject(s); the relationship spawns and nurtures the image (or series of images), forming its emotional core." Fernando Sancho: African Dream - "These pictures were taken in March 2016 while I was on assignment in Monrovia, Liberia. The optimism, hope and resilience I experienced was overwhelming. I learned much from watching daily life. I experienced grace and joy. The ordinary was extraordinary. Welcome to West Africa." Richard Wilcox: A Portfolio of New York Photographs - "Living in New York for most of my life has afforded me the opportunity to explore and experience the city's rich architectural heritage, which is the primary resource for much of my work. The purpose of this portfolio is not to document architecture but to observe and record tightly framed views and geometries I find in the built environment."

Poetry Reading |
“Creature coterminous with thirst,” Frank Bidart calls himself in a poem from Half-Light: Collected Poems 1965-2016, which won the 2017 National Book Award for Poetry. “Bidart’s fiercely original poetry…has found again and again an entry into the heartbreak, pathos, plangency, rage, and depression into which the longing for perfection will lead anyone who finds compromise intolerable” (Helen Vendler). Eleanor Chai’s debut, Standing Water, “creates a personal mythology of loss and longing rooted in a primal wounding: the separation of mother and child” (Natasha Trethewey), and even though “the void can never be overcome, the struggle unfurls as a beautiful catharsis―haunting, suffocating, and stunningly rendered” (Publishers Weekly).     Event is free and open to the public.  Information: english@barnard.edu
