Reading | Echoes in Ink: A Liberation Day Reading of Short Stories From the Holocaust (online)


In the aftermath of the Holocaust, many Jewish writers turned to pen and paper to reckon with the enormity of their loss. The stories they wrote--both fiction and nonfiction--bring to life the darkest moments of human history at the same time as they remind us of the human capacity for renewal and regeneration. On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this is a reading of three such short stories: "The Road of No Return" by Rachel Korn, "The Shawl" by Cynthia Ozick, and "A Wedding in Brownsville" by Isaac Bashevis Singer.

Discussion | ‘Ice Edge’: Indigenous and Scientific Ways of Knowing Reveal Arctic Change (online)


Under human-driven climate change, the Arctic is warming several times faster than the globe as a whole, disrupting ecosystems, landscapes and seascapes that Indigenous communities have depended on for hundreds of generations. Five years ago, facing momentous changes in coastal sea ice, Iñupiat residents of the Native Village of Kotzebue along Alaska’s Chukchi Sea began a collaborative research project with scientists from Columbia University and the University of Alaska Fairbanks to clarify trends and choices. The project, called Ice Bridges, or Ikaaġvik Sikukun in the Iñupiaq language, melded Indigenous observations, aerial monitoring, climate simulations and ocean and marine mammal science to address questions forged from the beginning through dialogue. The first peer-reviewed studies are emerging, along with a film chronicling the years-long study and the relationships it forged.

Opening Reception | CANCELED****Nearness: Hand-Centered Airbrush Paintings***CANCELED


The earliest image-makers used airbrushes (or their Stone Age equivalents, reeds, and bones) to blow pigment, leaving flat portraits of their own hands. In his own hand-centered airbrush paintings, Alexi Worth has developed a technique that is both suggestively archaic and contemporary, reflecting on what it means for pictures to be handmade in an age when our iPhone cameras have become extensions of our hands.

Author Reading | The New York Subway Map Debate: The Untold Story of a Legendary Moment in Design History (online)


Form or function? This age-old design question comes to a head in a new book that brings to life an iconic debate between Italian designer Massimo Vignelli and cartographer John Tauranac over the future of the NYC Subway Map in 1978. On that pivotal evening inside Cooper Union's Great Hall, Vignelli argued with Tauranac--then the chairman of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority's map committee--in a heated debate about abstraction versus realism, simplicity versus complexity, and form versus function in the design of the NYC subway map. Once lost to history, the discovery of a lost audio recording by documentary filmmaker Gary Hustwit sheds light on this watermark moment in design history, where Vignelli attempted to defend his abstract map of the subway system against a more accurate and detailed one favored by Tauranac.

Opening Reception | Artifacts of an Alternate Dream: Blurring the Line Between Sculpture and Painting


Matthew H. James’ work blurs the line between sculpture and painting. The energy of his method is palpable through eye catching colors and sweeping gestures. He works intuitively, drawing upon a wealth of material knowledge to transform an emotional process into art that is both immediate and progressive. The transmutation of the object is the focal point of his latest work. Incorporating artwork made over 20 years, he deconstructs and reforms a curated selection from his past. “Change is a fundamental part of my art. I am interested in what it means for an object to embody a moment. I work from my gut striving to reflect an unspoken element of being in the piece, but what I have found is that time itself has as much effect on the object’s aesthetic as my hand.” The reconstituted structures confront ideas about permanence and change. Fading patinas and crystalline fractals envelope dream like structures connecting the familiar and the alien. Layers of material interact on a molecular level in a chemical reaction that alters the form and composition of the art. The meaning also changes as the elements are consumed by the process and re-contextualized. The hand of the artist is therefore only visible beneath a veneer of continuous change.

Opening Reception | Behind the Veil: The Unattainable Purity of Mary


A solo show by New York artist Kerry Irvine. The artist pulled from her Roman Catholic upbringing and the influences of the patriarchal world, and the ways in which these forces push women toward the unattainable purity of Mary, the virgin mother. These forces encourage women to quiet themselves, to make themselves up, to veil themselves. Irvine noticed this process both in the ways she existed in the world and in her art making practice, often softening some of the strongest and most captivating moments in her paintings.

Opening Reception | With a Cast of Colored Stars: Group Exhibition (online)


Inspired by the visual representations found in early African-American cinema and music, this show highlights the evolution of racialized iconography in Black American popular entertainment. The title of the show is directly inspired by the marginal text used in Oscar Micheaux film posters such as Swing! (1938), The Exile (1931) and Underworld (1937). Among some of the many phrases displayed in these posters were, “an all colored cast” or “with a cast of colored stars”—language used by Black filmmakers to promote and advertise Black content during the early 20th century. The exhibition features original music sheet covers, reproductions of theater advertisements, film posters and vinyl record covers that span from 1836–1979. Artists and designers were invited to interpret and re-mix from this historical imagery, and have produced work across a wide range of media—posters, zines, videos, newspaper broadsides, patterns and collage.
