In addition, it will include rare landscape sketches and drawings from the collection of the State Museum of Vladimir Mayakovsky.

Mayakovsky's long-awaited meeting with his friend David Burliuk took place in New York, where Burliuk, the father of Russian Futurism, lived with his family in the Bronx after leaving the Soviet Union.

Lecture | Art After Slavery: Blackness and Early Modernism


Early modernism and blackness have always had an intimate, but troubled, relationship: Intimate because it is hard to imagine a modernism without blackness either as a sign of difference or identity; troubled because modernism is always surrounded by the suspicion that its turn to blackness in the name of the primitive or exotic was opportunistic—an alibi for sustaining domination in the aesthetic realm. But in order to take the full measure of modernism, we have to go beyond primitivism and locate the movement in a complex moment defined by the afterlife of slavery. What was the effect of the end of slavery on forms of art and systems of representation? This lecture will reflect on what freedom—its promise and its betrayal—meant in the aesthetic sphere. Speaker Simon Gikandi is Robert Schirmer Professor of English at Princeton University and President elect of the Modern Languages Association. His most recent book is Slavery and the Culture of Taste, co-winner of the MLA’s James Russell Lowell Award, the African Studies Association’s Melville J. Herskovits Award, and a Choice Outstanding Academic title. He is the editor of Volume 11 of The Oxford History of the Novel in English: The Novel in Africa and the Caribbean Since the 1950s.

After an abrupt and particularly painful end to a short-lived but explosive romance, the author leaves her native England to spend time away in New York City. However, soon upon arriving, she experiences a profound, bone-deep loneliness previously unknown.

Poetry Reading | G: Mystical Poetry


Corina Copp writes of Emmalea Russo's G: "It is tempting to call G a meditation on perception, but it’s always-already clear-eyed: often, when the figure meets ground, the actual ground is already the figure, and Emmalea Russo understands these illusory but changeable optics (and her chosen medium) as much as her writing has lived and centered them—grounded, yes, by (tenderly) performed intimacy, tide, earth." Emmalea Russo is an artist and writer. She received an MFA in Sculpture from Pratt Institute and has been in residence at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and 18th Street Arts Center in Los Angeles. G is her first book.

Opening Reception | Tender: Contemporary Czech Photography


Tender is a showcase of a segment of contemporary Czech photography. The exhibition’s title, as well as its concept, plays with the meanings of the word, which seem to be in contradiction. On one hand: softness, sensitivity, vulnerability, care – qualities that we now appear to be in need of defending more fiercely than ever in the last decades, on both sides of the Atlantic and all over the world. On the other hand, tender as an offer and a bid and the group exhibition as an unwilling contest of photographers, first competing for the attention of the institution and the curator and then the consideration of the audience: who and in what light should represent the broad spectrum of visual practices present in the Czech photography in the 2010s? The exhibition includes photographs by Valentýna Janů, Tereza Zelenková, Jiří Hroník, Vendula Knopová, Daniela and Linda Dostálková, Dušan Tománek, Jiří Thýn, Radek Brousil, Hana Knížová, and Adam Holý, among others.

Concert | Authentic Cuban Charanga with One of NYC's Best Latin Dance Bands


This night is all about authentic Cuban charanga, with one of New York’s premier Latin dance bands that will keep the dance floor packed all night. Originally founded as Sublime in 1975, the New York–based orchestra was reborn in 2000 as SonSublime thanks to the efforts of bandleader, vocalist, and guiro player Jesse Herrero. Since then, the band has released three albums and lit up dance floors around the world. Opening set by DJ Broadway.
