Tour | Tour of New York City Hall


One of the oldest continuously used City Halls in the nation that still houses its original governmental functions, New York's City Hall is considered one of the finest architectural achievements of its period. Constructed from 1803 to 1812, the building was an early expression of the City's cosmopolitanism. City Hall is a designated New York City landmark, and its rotunda is a designated interior landmark as well.

Book Discussion | Architecture of Migration: The Dadaab Refugee Camps and Humanitarian Settlement (online)


Environments associated with migration are often seen as provisional, lacking both history and architecture. As Anooradha Iyer Siddiqi demonstrates in her book, a refugee camp’s aesthetic and material landscapes—even if born out of emergency—reveal histories, futures, politics, and rhetorics. She identifies forces of colonial and humanitarian settlement, tracing spatial and racial politics in the Dadaab refugee camps established in 1991 on the Kenya-Somalia border—at once a dense setting that manifests decades of architectural, planning, and design initiatives and a much older constructed environment that reflects its own ways of knowing. She moves beyond ahistorical representations of camps and their inhabitants by constructing a material and visual archive of Dadaab, finding long migratory traditions in the architecture, spatial practices, landscapes, and iconography of refugees and humanitarians. Countering conceptualizations of refugee camps as sites of border transgression, criminality, and placelessness, Siddiqi instead theorizes them as complex settlements, ecologies, and material archives created through histories of partition, sedentarization, domesticity, and migration.

Book Discussion | The Counterfeit Countess: The Jewish Woman Who Rescued Thousands of Poles During the Holocaust (online)


Jewish mathematician Dr. Josephine Janina Mehlberg operated in Lublin, headquarters of Aktion Reinhard, the SS operation that murdered 1.7 million Jews in occupied Poland. Masquerading as a Polish aristocrat, the “Countess” persuaded SS officials to release thousands of Poles from Majdanek concentration camp. She secured permission to deliver food and medicine for thousands more inmates, and she smuggled supplies and messages to incarcerated resistance fighters. Incredibly, she eluded detection, survived the war, and emigrated to the US. Piecing together her history, co-authors Elizabeth White (former Research Director for the Center for the Prevention of Genocide at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) and Joanna Sliwa (historian at the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany) shine a bright light on this unrecognized hero, disrupt the narrative norm of non-Jews helping Jews, and interrogate why Dr Mehlberg has remained out of the frame for the better part of a century.

Book Discussion | When Left Moves Right: The Decline of the Left and the Rise of the Populist Right in Postcommunist Europe


Over the past two decades, postcommunist countries have witnessed a sudden shift in the electoral fortunes of their political parties: previously successful center-left parties suffered dramatic electoral defeats and disappeared from the political scene, while right-wing populist parties soared in popularity and came to power. This dynamic echoed similar processes in Western Europe and raises a question: Were these dynamics in any way connected?  Maria Snegovaya's book argues that they were. And that the root of the connection between them lies in the pro-market rebranding of the ex-communist left—the key explanatory variable. This book argues that, though the left’s pro-market shift initially led to electoral rewards, it had a less straightforward impact on left-wing parties’ electoral fortunes in the long run. Traditional supporters of the left (working-class and economically vulnerable groups) were alienated by the new economic policies, and the middle-class voters newly drawn to these parties did not compensate for those losses. As a result, for several electoral rounds following the rebranding, reformist parties on the left suffered dramatic electoral defeats. In response, right-wing parties in their respective countries adopted more redistributive economic platforms consistent with preferences of former supporters of the left, and incorporated sizeable shares of these electorates. This contributed to the growth of right-wing populist parties in the countries with a pro-market left.

Lecture | We’re Staying: Urban Redevelopment and the Struggle for Housing Justice in Puerto Rican New York (online)


Lorrin Thomas explores how residents of three New York Puerto Rican communities responded to city officials’ broken promises for fair housing access in the 20th century as part of the virtual Intersectional Justice Lecture Series. In San Juan Hill, the Manhattan neighborhood razed to make way for Lincoln Center, “slum clearance” pushed out thousands of Puerto Rican families in the 1950s. Many moved to the South Bronx, the country’s poorest congressional district which became famous in the 1970s for its thousands of burned-out tenements, or to the Lower East Side (Loisaida), where by 1970 20% of buildings were abandoned and every block was marked by vacant lots. By tracing the stories of regeneration that emerged, we will see how the most powerful ideas for stabilizing debilitated communities came not from city planners or other experts but from collaborations among community leaders, residents, and grassroots organizations.

Discussion | The Nakedness of the Imperfect Copy: A Conversation on Dance


Wagner Schwartz will engage in a conversation with Andre Lepecki about this piece, the controversy in 2017, and his career. In September 2017, after performing his solo work "La Bete" ("The Animal" or "The Beast") in several international art venues since 2005, the Brazilian dancer and choreographer Wagner Schwartz saw himself at the epicenter of brutal attacks from the extreme right in Brazil, after presenting his famous work at the 35th Brazilian Art Panorama, at MAM-SP (the Museum of Modern Art of Sao Paulo). Wagner, as well as his close family and friends, were threatened to death; the curators were summoned under duress to a Senate hearing in Brasilia; and the performance became the excuse for the unleashing of rabid and coward attacks against LGBTQIA+ people in Brazil--animating with renewed homo- and trans-phobic energy the candidacy Jair Bolsonaro to the presidency of Brazil. Wagner Schwartz will engage in a conversation with Andre Lepecki about this piece, the controversy in 2017, the relation between performance, dance and the political, but also about his broader artistic work as one of the most influential Brazilian choreographers working today in the eve before presenting "La Bete" at NYU's Skirball as part of Queer New York International Arts Festival curated by Zvonimir Dobrovic.

Opening Reception | Amalia Pica: Aula Expandida


Over the last three decades, Amalia Pica has examined relationships and how we communicate. Often using seemingly simple materials and found objects, she investigates human modes of interaction, especially our desire to learn and to be understood as we try to make sense of the world around us, and the accompanying pleasures and failures. Her work has an intentional lightness of touch and playfulness, which Pica prioritizes for its power to draw viewers into a conversation. Pica began her career as a primary school art teacher, an experience that continually informs much of her work. Aula Expandida features an interactive installation, sculptures, embroideries, and collages that explore how art, imagination, and language are connected, especially during the formative years of early childhood. In the gallery downstairs, visitors encounter a large room filled with everyday objects that have been turned into chalkboards, and they are invited to pick up a piece of chalk to draw, write, or scribble on all surfaces around them. In Aula Grande (outlined) – Spanish for large classroom – Pica examines the role school plays in imparting a common visual language in our cultural imaginary, and how this way of seeing and thinking accompanies us through the rest of our lives. The installation proposes that we rewrite, redraw, and reimagine alternative narrative possibilities from an expansion of knowledge centered on daily life. By involving visitors in her work, Pica invites both intellectual and physical modes of participation as we are asked to reconsider our surrounding environment as a classroom.

Book Discussion | Bitter Crop: The Heartache and Triumph of Billie Holiday's Last Year


Author Paul Alexander celebrates his revelatory look at the tumultuous life of a jazz legend and American cultural icon In the first biography of Billie Holiday in more than two decades, Alexander—author of heralded lives of Sylvia Plath and J. D. Salinger—gives us an unconventional portrait of arguably America’s most eminent jazz singer. He shrewdly focuses on the last year of her life—with relevant flashbacks to provide context—to evoke and examine the persistent magnificence of Holiday’s artistry when it was supposed to have declined, in the wake of her drug abuse, relationships with violent men, and run-ins with the law. During her lifetime and after her death, Billie Holiday was often depicted as a down-on-her-luck junkie severely lacking in self-esteem. Relying on interviews with people who knew her, and new material unearthed in private collections and institutional archives, Bitter Crop—a reference to the last two words of Strange Fruit, her moving song about lynching—limns Holiday as a powerful, ambitious woman who overcame her flaws to triumph as a vital figure of American popular music.

Opening Reception | Catherine Opie: Walls, Windows and Blood


Presenting one of acclaimed American photographer Catherine Opie’s latest bodies of work in the United States for the first time. In this series, Opie turns her lens towards the history and architecture of Vatican City. By examining the power systems and architectural structures that exist within the Vatican, the artist engages with both the legacy and present identity of this city within a city, raising critical questions about the history of the Roman Catholic Church and Catholicism and its impact today. The images were taken over the course of six weeks during the summer of 2021, while Opie was the Robert Mapplethorpe Resident in Photography at the American Academy in Rome. Due to pandemic access restrictions, the Vatican was uncharacteristically empty, allowing the artist to document both Vatican City and the Vatican Museum with an extraordinary amount of freedom.

Talk | Artist Talk: Salad Days


Photographer and photo editor Elizabeth Renstrom wrote in the introduction for the book, “Salad Days is first and foremost a dedication to this portraiture. It is a book composed of all the unpublished one-off images and editorials that happened along the way to Fryd building the career she’s made today. It also serves as a catalog and thank you to all the brilliant misfits she’s gained on the journey to recovering and finding herself after substantial loss. I see this mutual gratitude through the fervent engagement of all her subjects. Whether bodies are draped effortlessly, or in collision with each other, there is still a dynamic gaze at Fryd or within the frame. From the sharp stare of a girl as her face is shown being either perilously or tenderly cradled by anonymous hands, to the softer, passionate gaze of a lover shampooing their partner’s head—each moment tows a slightly chaotic edge. The frames are strikingly intimate and leave me wondering how they could be anything other than candid.”

Lecture | The Sounds of Berlin: Polyphony in Texts


Urban poetics is often perceived as visual or cinematic. The lecture will show, however, that it is the sounds of the city - people's voices, street noise or music - that contribute in a particular way to the perception of Berlin as a metropolis. These sounds affect the making of Berlin and its literature in early texts such as E.T.A. Hoffmann’s Des Vetters Eckfenster (1822) or Heinrich Heine’s Letters from Berlin (1822) but also in Alfred Döblin’s great novel Berlin Alexanderplatz (1929). In terms of affect and sound studies the lecture will argue that the sounds of Berlin participate in the plurality of the city and the polyphonic structure of its literature. Speaker Dr. Anne Fleig is the Spring 2024 Distinguished Visiting Max Kade Professor at the Department of Germanic Languaes.

Book Club | Notes from a Young Black Chef: A Memoir by Kwame Onwuachi


By the time he was 27 years old, Kwame Onwuachi had opened — and closed — one of the most talked-about restaurants in America. He had launched his own catering company with $20,000 that he made from selling candy on the subway, yet he'd been told he would never make it on television because his cooking wasn't "Southern" enough. In this memoir about the intersection of race, fame, and food, he shares the remarkable story of his culinary coming-of-age. Growing up in the Bronx, as a boy, Onwuachi was sent to rural Nigeria by his mother to "learn respect." However, the hard-won knowledge gained in Africa was not enough to keep him from the temptation and easy money of the streets when he returned home. But through food, he broke out of a dangerous downward spiral, embarking on a new beginning at the bottom of the culinary food chain as a chef onboard a Deepwater Horizon cleanup ship, before going on to train in the kitchens of some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the country and appearing as a contestant on Top Chef. Onwuachi's love of food and cooking remained a constant throughout, even when he found the road to success riddled with potholes. As a young chef, he was forced to grapple with just how unwelcoming the world of fine dining can be for people of color, and his first restaurant, the culmination of years of planning, shuttered just months after opening. Notes from a Young Black Chef is one man's pursuit of his passions, despite the odds.

Lecture | A Non-Human Centered Way of Life (in-person and online)


For centuries, humans have been putting themselves at the center of everything, exploiting natural resources, plants and animals for their own convenience. However, humans do know how to peacefully and harmoniously coexist with other creatures on friendly terms. One of these rare examples is found at the Ta Klang Village, where humans live with elephants. Their way of life and culture, worth studying, allow them to get along with nature and other living beings.    Learn about empathy, awareness, attitude, responsibility, common sense, instinct, and intuition. We will learn about humanity from our feelings, senses, atmosphere, subtle emotions of pleasure, joy, and sorrow.   With: Boonserm Premthada

It's winter 1930 and Tante Fritzy, cabaret artiste extraordinaire invites you to have a ball in her gender-bender world. Never mind the rising popularity of the guy with the bad moustache. Come and celebrate Berlin's edgiest cabaret music with Tante Fritzy, whose drag performance captures the Cabaret culture and Weimar wildness that kicked - and continues to kick - the world on its ass. Many of the songs were originally written or performed by queer artists in Weimar era Berlin. The performance piece is based on an evening created by Alan Lareau for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in conjunction with the exhibition Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945. The one-person show was originally produced by TOSOS ("The Other Side of Silence") a theatre company dedicated to preserving the theatrical heritage of the LGBT community. Jeremy Lawrence's work with the material of Weimar cabarets began with his creation of Cabaret Verboten in 1991 for the Mark Taper Forum in L.A. In its full-length version, the piece was produced around the country as well as in London and in Sweden.

Dance Performance | Threshold al fresco: Contemporary Dance on Ice


Le Patin Libre presents Threshold al fresco, a contemporary dance revolution on ice. Audience members can watch Threshold al fresco for free if they arrive early and stand by the rink until the show starts. Le Patin Libre pushes the boundaries of traditional figure skating and put their own "spin" on the sport. Their style evolved to become what many now call "contemporary dance on ice". Le Patin Libre was founded in 2005, by Alexandre Hamel, then a competitive figure skater. The first performances were modestly offered on frozen ponds, during winter carnivals organized by most cities and villages in Quebec. On some nights, Hamel and his companions rented hockey ice arenas and turned them into wild dancing parties. Le Patin Libre developed its unique style based on the choreographic possibilities of glide. Glide allows the human body to move through space while being liberated from walking, running, crawling and other natural gestures.
