Opening Reception | Dan Flavin: Kornblee Gallery 1967


An exhibition of works by Dan Flavin (1933–1996). The works on view recreate two groundbreaking exhibitions that Flavin mounted in 1967 at New York’s Kornblee Gallery, then located at the nearby and architecturally similar 58 East 79th Street.  In one gallery, a series of six vertically oriented works in cool white light, each varying slightly from one another, punctuate the space, making a subtle incursion into the existing architecture; whereas in the opposite gallery a work composed of six diagonals dramatically washes the space in green light. Made only a few years after Flavin began working with commercially available fluorescent lamps, these installations (or “situations,” as the artist preferred to call them) provide insight into Flavin's distinct strategy for conceptualizing, activating, and transforming space with light and color. The exhibition will be supplemented by the artist’s preparatory drawings as well as other archival materials documenting these early shows.

Book Discussion | The Diaries of Franz Kafka: A New Translation


Ross Benjamin discusses his essential new translation of Kafka's complete, uncensored diaries, in conversation with critic Merve Emre. Dating from 1909 to 1923, the handwritten diaries contain various kinds of writing: accounts of daily events, reflections, observations, literary sketches, drafts of letters, accounts of dreams, as well as finished stories. This volume makes available for the first time in English a comprehensive reconstruction of the diary entries and provides substantial new content, including details, names, literary works, and passages of a sexual nature that were omitted from previous publications. By faithfully reproducing the diaries’ distinctive—and often surprisingly unpolished—writing in Kafka’s notebooks, translator Ross Benjamin brings to light not only the author’s use of the diaries for literary experimentation and private self-expression, but also their value as a work of art in themselves.

Book Discussion | The Fulton Fish Market: A History (online)


Today, the once bustling, fragrant fish market in lower Manhattan's South Street Seaport is a rebuilt retail destination with a new kind of marketing – but from its founding in 1822, through its move to the Bronx in 2005, the Fulton Fish Market was an iconic New York institution. At first a neighborhood market for many different kinds of food, by the late nineteenth century, it became the nation’s largest fish and seafood wholesaling center. Thousands of immigrants worked at the Fulton Fish Market and introduced the rest of the city to their seafood traditions. In popular culture, the market evoked images of the animated East River waterfront, late-night fishmongering, organized crime, and a vanished working-class New York. In his new book, historian Jonathan H. Rees examines the market’s workings and significance, tracing the transportation, retailing, and consumption of fish. Rees tells the stories of the people and institutions – including fishermen, retail stores, restaurants, and chefs – bringing together technological, culinary, and environmental history to explain how changes in the urban landscape and economy affected the history of the market and the surrounding neighborhood.

Lecture | "Kill the Hollywood Jews": The Prewar Origins of Film Noir (online)


For many Hollywood studio heads, producers, and writers, the postwar sense of dread, of criminality unpunished, and of corrupt or indifferent cops that came to characterize the postwar film noir genre was borne out of prewar experiences with Nazis, fascists, and government authorities in 1930s-1940s Los Angeles. Indeed, no film noir crime drama rivaled the real-life threats faced by Hollywood Jews in the late 1930s and early 1940s. When Nazi death plots and plans to blow up nearby military installations were ignored by local and federal authorities, Hollywood Jews responded by secretly funding a spy ring that operated from August 1933 until the end of WWII. It was a good thing they did, for their spies uncovered a series of death plots aimed at attracting international attention to the Nazi cause and sparking a wave of deadly pogroms throughout America. Their most nefarious plot involved blowing up the homes of 24 of Hollywood's most famous figures: 22 industry Jews (including Samuel Goldwyn, Louis B. Mayer, Paul Muni, Eddie Cantor, B.P. Schulberg) and two Christian movie stars known to be too friendly to Jews, Charlie Chaplin and James Cagney, who spoke fluent Yiddish. In this lecture, Steven J. Ross will argue that the dark cynicism and sense of corruption that characterized film noir came in part from the additional discovery that Nazi and fascist plotters were aided by members of the LAPD and the LA County Sheriff's Department.

Book Discussion | The Deluge: A Novel of Approaching Disaster


Stephen Markley's new novel is a masterful American epic charting a near-future approaching collapse and a nascent but strengthening solidarity. In the first decades of the 21st century, the world is convulsing, its governments mired in gridlock while a patient but unrelenting ecological crisis looms. America is in upheaval, battered by violent weather and extreme politics. In California in 2013, Tony Pietrus, a scientist studying deposits of undersea methane, receives a death threat. His fate will become bound to a stunning cast of characters—a broken drug addict, a star advertising strategist, a neurodivergent mathematician, a cunning eco-terrorist, an actor turned religious zealot, and a brazen young activist named Kate Morris, who, in the mountains of Wyoming, begins a project that will alter the course of the decades to come. From the Gulf Coast to Los Angeles, the Midwest to Washington, DC, their intertwined odysseys unfold against a stark backdrop of accelerating chaos as they summon courage, galvanize a nation, fall to their own fear, and find wild hope in the face of staggering odds. As their stories hurtle toward a spectacular climax, each faces a reckoning: what will they sacrifice to salvage humanity’s last chance at a future? A singular achievement, The Deluge is a once-in-a-generation novel that meets the moment as few works of art ever have.
