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.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Book Club | Jane Eyre: Charlotte Bronte's Classic


Immediately recognized as a masterpiece when it was first published in 1847, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre is an extraordinary coming-of-age story featuring one of the most independent and strong-willed female protagonists in all of literature. Poor and plain, Jane Eyre begins life as a lonely orphan in the household of her hateful aunt. Despite the oppression she endures at home, and the later torture of boarding school, Jane manages to emerge with her spirit and integrity unbroken. She becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she finds herself falling in love with her employer—the dark, impassioned Mr. Rochester. But an explosive secret tears apart their relationship, forcing Jane to face poverty and isolation once again.One of the world’s most beloved novels, Jane Eyre is a startlingly modern blend of passion, romance, mystery, and suspense.

Performance | City Boy: Yorkville, My Hometown: 1960's working class neighborhood


City Boy: Yorkville, My Hometown is Thomas Pryor's love letter to street life in the 1960s working class neighborhood, Yorkville, NYC. Devil Dogs were a nickel, Spaldeens flew, and the capture game, Ringalario, let boys put their arms around girls for the first time. Nuns slugged you for humming baseball’s beer jingles in class. And, like other fathers, Tommy’s took him to saloons and no one thought it was strange. It's a bittersweet portrait of family and life that echoes TV’s “The Wonder Years” - just add in taverns, subways and Checker cabs. Pryor recounts the neighborhood's history back to 1896 when his immigrant family arrive at 1403 Avenue A and begin burrowing into their unfamiliar warren. Thomas Pryor's work has appeared in The New York Times, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and other periodicals. His memoir, I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood, was published in 2014 (YBK). Pryor’s blog: "Yorkville: Stoops to Nuts," was chosen by The NY Times for their Blog Roll in 2008. Pryor's passion is preserving the history of Yorkville through storytelling, writing and photography.

Lecture | Bordeaux: Forgotten Black Metropolis


Bordeaux may be known for its red wine and its historic architecture but before there was Black Paris there was Black Bordeaux. Beginning in the eighteenth century, Bordeaux was a site of migration, artisanal labor, and industrial expansion using enslaved and free black labor. Historian Lorelle Semley finds traces of these African and Caribbean women, men, and children in tattered documents, rare paintings, and in the very map of the city. Imagining this Black Bordeaux also allows us to rethink Black Paris and Black France beyond the music, art, and politics of the twentieth century. Lorelle D. Semley is Associate Professor in the Department of History at College of the Holy Cross.

Performance | C.R.E.A.M.: An Afternoon of Performances and Poetry


C.R.E.A.M. is a multidisciplinary event featuring music, performances, and readings inspired by Wu-Tang Clan’s 1993 song “C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me)." The event features newly commissioned performances by Jibade-Khalil Huffman and Simone White, Devin Kenny, and Bonita Oliver, as well as poetry readings by A. H. Jerriod Avant and Sable Elyse Smith. C.R.E.A.M., curated by artist Sable Elyse Smith, is an extension of Smith’s sculpture of the same name, exhibited on the High Line through March 2019 as part of the group exhibition Agora. The sculpture takes the shape of an altered replica of the Hollywood Sign. In her version, the sign reads "IRONWOODLAND"—a reference to the Ironwood State Prison and to “Hollywoodland,” the segregated real estate development advertised in the original sign. The piece draws attention to the fraught connections between institutions that develop real estate and those that fund and support prisons. Mirroring her embrace of the varying creative and structural capacities of language, music, and sculpture, Smith invited a group of artists, poets, and musicians to present new or existing work that dismantles and reimagines “C.R.E.A.M.” as a song and as a larger cultural moment. “C.R.E.A.M.”’s lyrics describe the ways that racist economic systems in the US act upon and through Black bodies. With this starting point, the event’s contributors interrogate mass incarceration but resist the simplistic narratives of statistics, criminality, and race. Instead, they attend to the complexities of the carceral state and the specificities of its effects on our individual lives and our culture at large. Devin Kenny opens the event with a musical performance that looks at the history of influences that led to “C.R.E.A.M.” and those that came after; Jibade-Khalil Huffman and Simone White present a new, multimedia collaborative performance; Bonita Oliver realizes a new vocal performance; A. H. Jerriod Avant reads new and existing poems that connect to the larger themes at hand; and Smith reads some of her own writing.

Opening Reception | Interiors: A Group Exhibition


Interiors provides a doorway to the artists’ visions of what lies within. John Devaney is showing two paintings inspired by the bedroom scene from King Kong (1933). In "Midtown Suite," there’s a monstrous intrusion into the dreamlike, lush interior. In "Midtown – The Male Gaze," the two lovers are seemingly safe insidewhile a dark terror looms just outside. Understandably the workplaces of artists are prominent. Both Yolande Heljnen and Denise Fryburg are showing pieces titled Studio and In the Studio. And while not included in the exhibit, a detail from John Devaney’s Gallery can be seen on the show’s poster Exhibitng artists are Bev Thompson, Cari Clare, Denise Fryburg, Ingrid Sletten, Jody Leight, John Devaney, Juanita Gilmore, Lois Ross, Valerie Lynch, Virginia Asman and Yolande Heljnen

Author Reading | Insurgent Supremacists: Understanding and Fighting the U.S. Far Right


From white nationalists to male tribalists, from Christian theocrats to Patriot movement activists, the U.S. far right has made dangerous gains in recent years. These “insurgent supremacists” bolster established systems of oppression but also challenge the existing political order in real ways. Antifascist researcher Matthew N. Lyons will outline the major far right currents, their ideologies and goals, their interconnections and tensions with the Trump administration, and some key lessons for antifascist work.
