Concert | Concert of Folk and World Music (online)


Mouth to Mouth (Szájról szájra) was a joint project by Szilvia Bognár, Ágnes Herczku and Ági Szalóki that they presented at the Palace of Arts in 2008 following a record release of the same name. Among the reasons for the success of the production, we need here only highlight the diversity that derives from the markedly different characters of the three singers, and simultaneously the cohesion created, on the one hand, by their shared singing, and on the other hand by the distinctive nature of their musical accompaniment. The playing of these outstanding figures from the Hungarian world music and jazz scenes displays both a deep knowledge of folk music traditions and an experimental tendency apparent in their openness towards other musical genres, allowing the three ladies to bind together their bouquet of Hungarian and Bulgarian songs with characteristic sensitivity, vitality and humour - passing them on from hand to hand, or more properly, mouth to mouth.

Jazz | Live Jazz in Harlem


Abdou Mboup was born in the small town of Kebemer, Senegal to a family of oral historians and musicians. Having studied traditional percussion under the tutelage of his family, Abdou soon became a key figure in the development of the Mbalax style (Senegalese dance music). In the early 1970’s he was the first musician to incorporate various traditional instruments into Senegalese popular music. A few years later, he joined the renewed Dakar-based group Xalam, with which he toured Europe and Africa under the patronage of South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela. By the 1980’s, Abdou was living and working in Paris, where he attracted the attention of the American trumpeter Jon Hassell, with whom he recorded and performed at the 1982 Womad festival in the UK. Soon thereafter, he became the percussionist of Eddy Louiss’s band with whom he toured and recorded for the next ten years. Since then, Abdou’s career has only expanded. He has toured and recorded in Africa, Europe, America, Southeastern Asia, Japan, Nepal and India. From the 1990’s until now, Abdou has written original compositions for Jean Luc Ponty, Pharaoh Sanders,Tom Tom Club and Randy Weston. As a player, he has collaborated with Nina Simone, Joe Zawinul Syndicate , Kenny Barron, Harry Belafonte, Michel Petrucciani, Ron Carter, Joe Chambers, Steve Turre, Jon Faddis, Billy Higgins, Bill Laswell, Jason Moran, Regina Carter, Wycliffe Gordon, Ronny Jordan, George Cables,Toots Thielmans, Jon Lurie, Chico Freeman, Craig Harris, and Manu Dibango. Today he performs solo on the kora, xalam, percussion and voice.

Book Discussion | Russia and Ukraine: Entangled Histories, Diverging States (in-person and online)


Oxana Shevel's book is an examination of the root causes of Russia's war against Ukraine. The book explains how since 1991 Russia and Ukraine diverged politically, ending up on a collision course. Russia slid back into authoritarianism and imperialism, while Ukraine consolidated a competitive political system and pro-European identity. As Ukraine built a democratic nation-state, Russia refused to accept it and came to see it as an "anti-Russia" project. After political and economic pressure proved ineffective, and even counterproductive, Putin went to war to force Ukraine back into the fold of the "Russian world." Ukraine resisted, determined to pursue European integration as a sovereign state. These irreconcilable goals, rather than geopolitical wrangling between Russia and the West over NATO expansion, are - the authors argue - essential to understanding Russia's war on Ukraine.

Lecture | American Power and the Short Peace


After 1991 the international system witnessed the greatest reduction in violence in its history, sparking a cottage industry of scholars seeking to understand this welcome sea change. Most of their explanations, William C. Wohlforth argues, are related to US power and the purposes to which it was put. It follows that further US decline, and a potentially dramatic shift in US global aims, have baleful implications for peace. Speaker: William C.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Seams / Magic Mountain


Rae Broyles Seams: Personal stories, mending lives Features work that addresses how women are truly holding on by a thread to maintain the fabric of our society. Woman are struggling to preserve their rights while still allowing themselves to be both fully feminine and yet strong enough to support important societal values.  Irina Sheynfeld Magic Mountain  Magic Mountain is a place between Heaven and Earth, an in-between location where one may decide to move up or to come down spiritually and physically. A magical moment in time and space that allows mortals to pause and dream. In many cultures and religions fate, truth, and revelations happen up on higher altitudes. This body of work is inspired by Thomas Mann’s magnum opus Magic Mountain. It is particularly inspired by her last trip to Davos in the summer of 2023, when she visited places described by Mann and found the famous bench where young Hans Castorp becomes overwhelmed by the beauty of nature and his own avalanche of memories and remembers the first love of his life.

Opening Reception | Eddie Martinez: Wavelengths


Over the past two decades, Martinez has become known for his striking and energetic style of painting, part of an expansive practice that includes painted bronze sculptures, works on paper and printmaking. Deftly layering oil, acrylic and enamel paint, and employing an ever-evolving vocabulary of characters and symbols, Martinez has cultivated a style uniquely his own. Many of the new paintings featured in Wavelengths belong to Martinez’s ongoing Whiteouts series. Started in 2015, he has continuously returned to this series in which a colorful, underlying painting is covered with white paint. Ranging from a thick impasto to a thin wash, the final layer reads as a veil over the surface, softening but not hiding the vibrant image beneath.

Opening Reception | Michelangelo Lovelace: Cleveland by Night


An exhibition devoted to the work of late artist Michelangelo Lovelace (1960-2021). On view will be paintings and drawings depicting nocturnal city life in Cleveland, Ohio—exterior and interior tableaux capturing the city where he was born and lived for all of his sixty years. Best known for urban genre scenes set within sprawling cityscapes, Lovelace attracted critical praise in his lifetime for intimate depictions of Cleveland’s Black community and its built world. His subject matter explores topics of policing, poverty, war, and healthcare, all replete with deep personal expressions of Black identity and shaped by his immersion in art as an antidote to the effects of poverty and addiction. Through a rich color palette and a distinctive, even eccentric, approach to spatial perspective, Lovelace’s art imbued his subjects with immediacy and relatability, beckoning the viewer to join him in examining the struggles of urban communities as well as their resilience and vibrancy.

Opening Reception | The Ways of Langston Hughes


Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes (1901-1967) held friendships with artists across generations and disciplines. He forged connections between creative professionals, encouraged the work of others, and helped build a larger network of Black creatives and intellectuals responding to, and shaping, the current events of the time. One friendship began in the classroom at Atlanta University when photojournalist Griffith Davis (1923-1993) was a student and Hughes a visiting professor. The photographs in The Ways of Langston Hughes: Griff Davis and Black Artists in the Making offer an intimate look at Langston Hughes with students, writers, visual artists, and performers in different periods of their maturation. Davis’s photography is complemented by archival material and letters reflecting decades of personal correspondence.

Lecture | Mexican Antigones: In Search of a Stolen Mourning


Analyzing the Mexican case of collectives of women currently looking for their disappeared relatives due to an escalation of violence related to the so-called War against Drugs that former president Felipe Calderón (2006–2012) started, this essay develops a new conception of politics grounded not only on rational thought but also on affect. These collectives put forward a materialistic, feminist, and performative mode of politics. Publicly lamenting their losses and literally digging bodies out of Mexican land, these women perform and recover the citizenship that the Mexican state has de facto disavowed of them. I propose conceptualizing them as “bad victims” since their taking action does not take away their pain; rather, the public exposure of their lament actually turns them into political agents. Speaker Rosaura Martínez Ruiz is Full Professor of Philosophy at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and a member of the National System of Researchers.

Book Discussion | Glitter and Concrete: A Cultural History of Drag in New York City by Elyssa Maxx Goodman (In Person AND Online)


Arts and culture writer Elyssa Maxx Goodman discusses her new book, Glitter and Concrete: A Cultural History of Drag in New York City, with photographer and makeup artist Jupiter.  From the lush feather boas that adorned early female impersonators to the sequined lip syncs of barroom queens to the drag kings that have us laughing in stitches, drag has played a vital role in the creative life of New York City. But the evolution of drag in the city—as an art form, a community and a mode of liberation—has never before been fully chronicled. Now, for the first time, Elyssa Maxx Goodman unearths the dramatic, provocative untold story of drag in New York City in all its glistening glory. Glitter and Concrete ducks beneath the velvet ropes of Harlem Renaissance balls, examines drag’s crucial role in the Stonewall Uprising, traces drag's influence on disco and punk rock as well as its unifying power during the AIDS crisis and 9/11, and culminates with the modern-day drag queen in the era of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Concert | Indie Rockers with a Dreamy, Optimistic Vibe


Roz Raskin is the distinctly lush voice and glamorous front person behind the Providence, Rhode Island-based indie rock combo Nova One. Raskin's lilting croon splits the difference between Leslie Feist and Lana Del Rey, while their songwriting centers vulnerability, self love, self expression, and self acceptance. In performance, Nova One looks the part of their 60s girl group sound with all four members of the band donning mid-thigh black A-line dresses and peach-colored bob wigs. It's a display of unity and support, queer futurity, and ever-so-gentle retro irony that's completely in line with their dreamy, optimistic vibe. They will present songs from their newest full-length release, 2023's create myself.
