Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Discussion | "Are Y'all Really Feeling Me?": How Black Performance Moves Beyond Just Matter(ing)


Organized by André Daughtry, this panel intends to speak to an illegibility of the spiritual black body to predominantly white audiences in performance with artists whose work addresses an "epistemic absence” in the performance community. Noting that experimental performance can be extremely innovative when probing the multiplicitous issues surrounding identity, guest artists will discuss how they address normative approaches to performance – like the performer/spectator bifurcation –when the performers exhibiting work were often raised in spiritually infused movement traditions as participant-observers not as “audience.”

Discussion | Visions of Justice: Art and Change


Art has always addressed and exposed injustice in the world and has served as a catalyst for meaningful change throughout cultures. Equality is not the experience of many Americans today in their own country. While home to only 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. has 25% of the world’s prison population. Among mass incarceration, issues of continued racism, sexism, and income inequality still widely persist. Individuals are taking a stand for change and are using art as their instrument. As such, art has become one of the greatest tools to advocate for social justice. This is also true in movements around the globe. In this panel discussion, the John Brademas Center of New York University welcomes Shahidul Alam, renowned Banglideshi photographer, writer, activist, and author of his new book, The Tide Will Turn. Shahidul will provide remarks pertaining to his work then join in conversation with other prominent activists to discuss their life’s work dedicated to social justice and their use of art in order to achieve it.
