Discussion | Pursuing Internet Platform Transparency in 2022 (online)


Internet platforms dominated the headlines in 2021. Revelations from whistleblowers and independent researchers demonstrated how platforms failed to curb mis- and disinformation about public health, eating disorders, political violence, and more. One common thread connected so many of these stories: transparency—or rather, the lack of it. Platforms like Facebook have an outsized influence on individuals and society at large. Yet there’s dangerously little insight into how they operate: Who’s paying for political ads? What content receives the most engagement? Why do platform algorithms behave the way they do? In this panel, four experts from civil society will discuss the importance of making platform transparency a reality in 2022—and the path to get there. Panelists from Mozilla, NYU’s Cybersecurity for Democracy, Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, and National Hispanic Media Coalition will discuss a three-pronged approach for making platform transparency a reality.

Lecture | Caregiving in the Gap (online)


Those who do the work of care are often caught in a double bind. Caring for someone else, and any potential to provide comfort, often depends on institutions entangled in symbolic and material violence. Consider the many possible (often inadvertent) side effects of care work: reproducing gendered labor formations; circulating racist ideologies through diagnosis, becoming complicit in hemispheric security schemes, promoting ableism, amplifying anti-political neoliberal empowerment regimes, fostering dispossession. In this talk, Tomas Matza of the University of Pittsburgh will explore the idea that when caregivers confront this double bind and find ways to care otherwise, they constitute a form of care in the gap.

Gallery Talk | Holbein: Capturing Character: Exhibition Preview (online)


Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/98–1543) was among the most skilled, versatile, and inventive artists of the early 1500s. He created captivating portraits of courtiers, merchants, scholars, and statesmen in Basel, Switzerland, and later in England, and served as a court painter to Tudor King Henry VIII. Enriched by inscriptions, insignia, and evocative attributes, his portraits comprise eloquent visual statements of personal identity and illuminate the Renaissance culture of erudition, self-fashioning, luxury, and wit.

Opening Reception | To the Fields of Lilac: Ceramic Vessels


Shawanda Corbett works across ceramics, film, performance, and dance often collaborating with her choreographer (and brother) Albert Corbett. Her varied artistic practice attends to the relationship between these mediums. Her ceramic objects, for example, speak deeply to an imagination and intuition enlivened by performance. Moreover, as Corbett’s vessels can be described as either ceramics, cyborg sculptures, performative objects and so on, one’s inability to define them as one or the other speaks to their resistance to fixed categorizations and their alignment with hybridity.

Author Reading | Sticker: Adorning Our Lives and Memories (online)


Author Henry Hoke discusses the ubiquitous, multivalent sticker. Stickers adorn our first memories, dot our notebooks and our walls, are stuck annoyingly on fruit, and accompany us into adulthood to announce our beliefs from car bumpers. They hold surprising power in their ability to define and provoke and hold a strange steadfast presence in our age of fading physical media. employs a constellation of stickers to explore queer boyhood, parental disability, and ancestral violence.
