Tour | Exhibition Tour: Border Crossings: Exile and American Modern Dance, 1900-1955


Immigrant artists and artists of color, marginalized and excluded in their own lands, have largely been erased from dance history despite their pivotal contributions to contemporary performance. Border Crossings: Exile and American Modern Dance, 1900-1955 illuminates these unknown and underrepresented artists whose dance artistry forged our understanding of modern dance and cultural and national identity. Mapping how the crucial concept of the border geographic, national, legal, spiritual, even psychic--fed the articulation of a distinctly American modernity, Border Crossings charts the geographic and aesthetic migration of many artists, including Ada Overton Walker, Josephine Baker, Michio Ito, Carmen Amaya, Syvilla Fort, Si-Lan Chen Leyda, Katherine Dunham, and Jose Limon. Border Crossings surveys these artists' heroism and hidden narratives through photographs, rare film footage, artwork, costumes, scenic designs, and other extensive documentation. Modern dance artists' confrontations at the border--forced and willed--shaped early twentieth-century philosophies of "the modern" in dance to include the experience of exile, displacement, and newfound identity. This tour is first come, first served and requires no registration.

Lecture | „I’m always on the go…”: The Painter Franz Domscheit / Pranas Domšaitis (1880-1965) (online)


Searching, wandering, not arriving – this is how the person and art of Franz Domscheit/Pranas Domšaitis can be characterized. Born into a German-Lithuanian family as the son of a farmer and innkeeper, it was primarily his Lithuanian origins that interested him. The early landscape and cultural impressions of his homeland, Prussian-Lithuania, at the interface of German and Lithuanian culture, shaped his work throughout his life. Landscape is one of the painter’s main themes, who is primarily perceived as an expressionist.

This book, edited by Valerie Kivelson, Sergei Kozlov, and Joan Neuberger, offers readers an extended visual tour of the peoples and places that constituted the Russian Empire in its various formations over more than a millennium of history: peoples who governed, confronted, defied, accommodated, and shaped it with visual images and artifacts of many kinds.

Bringing together an international array of scholars from numerous disciplines, Picturing Russian Empire raises important questions about visuality, empire, nationality, and multi-nationality in attempting to understand the history of this enormous, creative, troubled, and tangled region.

Discussion | Trans Inclusion at a Time of Backlash (online)


Attacks on the transgender community have increased dramatically in recent years, including legal restrictions on bathroom access and medical care, book bans, and what the Human Rights Campaign has called an “epidemic of violence.”  Andy Marra, Executive Director of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, for a conversation with Professor Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law and Director of the Meltzer Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, talk about the state of trans rights in 2024.

Book Discussion | Dancing the Afrofuture: Hula, Hip-Hop, and the Dunham Legacy (2024) by Halifu Osumare


Dance educator and Black popular culture scholar Dr. Halifu Osumare speaks about her book, Dancing the Afrofuture: Hula, Hip-Hop, and the Dunham Legacy (2024), which chronicles the next stage in her life and career from dancer-activist to academic scholar following her 2018 memoir Dancing In Blackness. Hailing from the Bay Area in California, Osumare began studying with the great Katherine Dunham in the late 1980s, after founding her own Africanist dance center in Oakland. She also founded her own national dance initiative, Black Choreographers Moving Toward the 21st Century. Dr. Osumare presents from Dancing the Afrofuture exploring her relationship with Dunham while studying hula in Hawai'i and simultaneously researching and publishing a book about global hip-hop, all while earning her doctorate from the University of Hawai'i. In so doing, Dr. Osumare demonstrates how performance as research is at the heart of Dunham's legacy, as she explores the Afrofuture. Registration required.

Discussion | Banned Books: Censorship, Free Expression, and LGBTQ Identity


Over the past few years, challenges to books written by or about LGBTQ people—as well as those by or about racial and ethnic minorities—have been on the rise. This trend has especially impacted books that are intended for young audiences. In 2023 alone, more than 1,900 attempts were made to ban books from school libraries in the United States. Featuring a panel of authors whose books have been subject to bans, this event will examine the context surrounding the surge in calls to censor books that depict the lives of LGBTQ people. In addition, panelists will discuss potential policy solutions that could help protect free expression.

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


Elizabeth B. White and Joanna Sliwa’s new book tells the astonishing story of Dr. Josephine Janina Mehlberg—a Jewish mathematician who saved thousands of lives in Nazi-occupied Poland by masquerading as a Polish aristocrat—drawing on her own unpublished memoir. Using the identity papers of a Polish aristocrat, Mehlberg worked as a welfare official while also serving in the Polish resistance. With guile, cajolery, and steely persistence, the “Countess” persuaded SS officials to release thousands of Poles from the Majdanek concentration camp. She won permission to deliver food and medicine—even decorated Christmas trees—for thousands more of the camp’s prisoners. At the same time, she personally smuggled supplies and messages to resistance fighters imprisoned at Majdanek. Incredibly, she eluded detection,  ultimately survived the war, and emigrated to the US.

Book Discussion | The Reformatory by Tananarive Due (In Person AND Online)


Join WNYC's Alison Stewart and Tananarive Due for a live conversation about her newest book, The Reformatory, followed by a special musical performance from Jake Blount. The Reformatory is a gripping, haunting work of historical fiction piecing together the life of a relative the family never spoke of and bringing his tragedy and those of so many others at the infamous Dozier School for Boys into the light. Gracetown, Florida, June 1950. Twelve-year-old Robbie Stephens, Jr., is sentenced to six months at the Gracetown School for Boys for coming to the defense of his older sister. And so begins his journey deep into the terrors of the Jim Crow South and the horrible truths of the school they call The Reformatory, where Robbie's talent for seeing ghosts that was once a comfort to him has now become a window to the horrors of racism and injustice, for both the living, and the dead.

Concert | Environmental Sound Artist Performs with Jazz Musician


Mary Edwards is a composer and sound artist whose interdisciplinary practice encompasses themes of temporality, impermanence, nostalgia and the natural world that recur throughout her work. Everywhere We Are is the Farthest Place is her "ode rather than an elegy" to the transforming Arctic landscape, climate vulnerability, elemental sensuality and terrestrial connectivity that also draws partly on sound as a vibrational phenomenon and Space Analogues. Edwards began this project while sailing on an artist and scientist research expedition above the 78th Parallel to Svalbard (halfway between Norway and the North Pole) to make field recordings and listen to the rhythm and breath of our planet from another pulse point. She documented sound properties of glacial geology and oceanographic data sonification--distinct groans and reverberant calving ice tumbling from the sublime glacier walls into the depths of fjords, the movement of subterranean rivers, Beluga whale song and vocal intonations--intended to provide sonic access for all by "de-centralizing the centered and un-othering the others." Mary Edwards (keyboards, Waterphone, electronics) will install and perform the piece with Michael Eaton (saxophone, flute, electronics,) a Brooklyn-based composer, and educator active in contemporary jazz and free improvisation.

Discussion | Sports and Diplomacy Roundtable


This roundtable will introduce the audience to sports diplomacy and how it can be used both through governments (states, United Nations) as well as informally through citizen-to-citizen exchanges. It will reflect on key lessons learned and best practices, as well as what leadership within the sports diplomacy framework can look like. In August 2023, basketball became the first sport ever to formally receive its own dedicated international day by the United Nations when World Basketball Day was announced. To be celebrated every December 21st, the day in 1891 of the game’s first match, the initiative reflects basketball’s new worldwide stature, one primed for a 21st century takeover and key tool in sports diplomacy and international affairs. That’s because this global game is now powering international affairs, policy, and sporting dynamics, from Africa and the Gulf States to the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific: as the NBA heads for its second annual preseason match in Abu Dhabi this October; as Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund is now a 5% owner of Monumental Sports (parent company of the NBA’s Washington Wizards and WNBA’s Washington Mystics); as NBA’s Basketball Africa League prepares for its fourth season in Senegal, Egypt, and Rwanda and is centered around basketball diplomacy within Africa as well as externally to the globe; as WNBA players try to figure out how to earn livelihoods without always playing the off-season overseas (witness the decline in those playing in Russia after the Brittney Griner case). And as the NBA’s new highly anticipated 19-year-old star, French unicorn Victor Wembanyma, prepares to make his league debut with the legendary San Antonio Spurs. This roundtable will introduce the audience to sports diplomacy and how it can be used both through governments (states, United Nations) as well as informally through citizen-to-citizen exchanges. It will reflect on key lessons learned and best practices, as well as what leadership within the sports diplomacy framework can look like.

Book Discussion | The Freaks Came Out to Write: The Definitive History of The Village Voice, the Radical Paper That Changed American Culture


Tricia Romano presents her rollicking history of America's most iconic weekly newspaper told through the voices of its legendary writers, editors, and photographers. You either were there or you wanted to be. A defining New York City institution co-founded by Norman Mailer, The Village Voice was the first newspaper to cover hip-hop, the avant-garde art scene, and Off-Broadway with gravitas. It reported on the AIDS crisis with urgency and seriousness when other papers dismissed it as a gay disease. In 1979, the Voice's Wayne Barrett uncovered Donald Trump as a corrupt con artist before anyone else was paying attention. It invented new forms of criticism and storytelling and revolutionized journalism, spawning hundreds of copycats.

Film | Things Fall Apart (1971): African Film Festival


When Obi Okonkwo completes his studies in England and returns to Nigeria, he finds himself in a country marked by rapid industrialization and deep political change. Navigating romantic love and the expectations and disappointments of modern Nigeria, the film reflects on post colonialism and its inherited corruption, as well as the conflict between modern and traditional African values. Adapted from the novels Things Fall Apart (1958) and No Longer at Ease (1960)—two parts of Chinua Achebe’s so-called African Trilogy—this rarely seen and recently recovered feature film was produced by Nigerian filmmaker Francis Oladele and directed by Berlin-based filmmaker Hans Jürgen Pohland. Things Fall Apart was made in Nigeria shortly after the Biafra war. Cast: Iyabo Aboaba, Boniface Afoko, Steve Allis Following the screening will be a conversation with Dr. Nduka Otiono, a former student of Chinua Achebe and Director of Carleton University’s Institute of African Studies and Yasmina Price, writer and researcher.
