Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


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.

Lecture | Exploring the Landscapes of Extraction. Contemporary Capitalism, Social Struggles, and the State


In recent years the question of extraction has been tested by several critical investigations of mega-mining projects, fracking, extensive agriculture in many parts of the world. At the same time the expansion of the extractive frontier has been contested by some of the most powerful social struggles of recent years – from the protests against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to the resistance against the building of a road through Bolivia’s Isiboro Sécure National Park and Indigenous Territory. Speaker Sandro Mezzadra teaches political theory at the University of Bologna and is adjunct research fellow at the Institute for Culture and Society of Western Sydney University.

Talk | A Void Does Not Exist: Negative Space in Comic Art


Julia Gfrorer discusses the effect of leaving negative space in a work and how useful a tool it can be for controlling the emotional tenor of a story. People have an instinctive dread of emptiness (“horror vacui,” “nequaquam vacuum,” “nature abhors a vacuum”) which means as creators we tend to avoid it, but for a reader it can also be soothing, hypnotic, sensuous, and magnetic. A void isn’t necessarily a “nothingness”: something happens because of it. She will give examples from her own work as well as work that’s influenced her. Julia Gfrörer is a writer and cartoonist.
