Discussion | Mexican Muralism and its American Impact (online)


War dominated the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Europe. New political ideologies also added tensions. Art responded by turning its focus onto the common man and woman in natural and urban environments. The Americas were impacted as well with cries for change. In Mexico, a ten-year revolution offered an opportunity for Mexico to acknowledge its pre-Hispanic past with a new blended population. Art became the medium to spark emotions and share with pride epic tales of how this blended world was to take shape. The Mexican Muralism Movement embraced European traditions of drawing and frescoes with social realism and new aesthetics that swept into North America. Our panel will discuss these impacts and the artists whose mark still moves us today. This is a panel discussion led by Savona Bailey-McClain, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the West Harlem Art Fund. Panelists include: -- Esther Adler, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA -- Leon Tovar, Principal, Leon Tovar Gallery, NYC -- Dr. Orlando Hernandez-Ying, Rockefeller Brothers Fund Curatorial Research Fellow for the Hubert & Mireille Goldschmidt Works on Paper Fellowship, Hispanic Society Museum & Library -- With remarks from: Dr. Marcus B. Burke, Senior Curator, Paintings, Drawings, and Metalworks, Hispanic Society Museum & Library

Discussion | Early Modern Money in Global Perspective (online)


This panel takes a global perspective on the history of money during the early modern period, an era often associated with the growth of state power, colonialism, and global commercial connections. By facilitating comparisons and drawing connections across different historiographies, we hope to elucidate the relationship between money and sovereignty, the links between social relations and market exchange, and the tensions between global currencies and localized values.

Museums | Tiffany Glass and Other Exhibitions


The collection of Tiffany's leaded glass includes an extraordinary array of floral and geometric lamps as well as landscape and figural windows. A unique feature of the collection is a vast, one-of-a-kind archive of original flat glass and pressed-glass "jewels" used by Tiffany Studios, which provides valuable insight into the development of the stained-glass movement in America at the turn of the twentieth century. Established in 1972, this art museum's permanent collection consists of around 10,000 items, over 6,000 of which are documents and objects related to the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs, some of which are on long-term display. Covid protocol applies.

Discussion | What Are Kosovo Citizens' Big Concerns at Home and Abroad? (online)


A poll showed Kosovo citizens were more optimistic than in the fall about the direction of the country. Economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination against the virus joined longstanding concerns related to unemployment and corruption. Concern about the safety of the vaccine was high, and belief in false COVID-19 narratives remained, just before Kosovo began its broader national vaccination campaign.

Discussion | Government Lies and the Danger to Democracy (online)


Of all the kinds of lies that proliferate in the public sphere, perhaps the most dangerous to the functioning of democratic government are government lies. This is because when the government lies, it threatens the ability of the people to perform their basic democratic function: namely, to judge whether their elected representatives are representing their interests satisfactorily. Government lies are also, however, harder to regulate than other kinds. The courts have almost unequivocally rejected the idea that constitutional law should do anything to constrain the government’s capacity to lie. The result is that what mechanisms exist to limit government lying—whistleblower laws, right of information statutes, norms forbidding political interference with bureaucratic practice—are entirely a product of legislative invention or institutional self-regulation. Are there reforms, either constitutional, legislative, or institutional, that could be made to limit the government’s capacity to lie or to mitigate the harms created by government lies? What might it do to preserve the integrity of the information that the federal and state bureaucracies produce? In an intensely partisan political environment, is it possible to prevent the government’s lies or limit their harms?
