Opening Reception | Doi Kim: Velvet


Doi Kim's solo exhibition presents works that contemplate our complex relationship with personal and collective traumas through metaphorical storytelling. This exhibition is inspired by the velvet covering a deer's antlers: a thin layer of skin concentrated with blood vessels and nerves that carry nutrients necessary for the antler's growth and protection. A deer's antlers are used primarily for defensive measures, but they are also a symbol of strength and dominance, a sign of the deer's hierarchical standing in their social group. If a deer is malnourished, injured, or stressed, blood drains out of the antlers, and the velvet layer dries and peels away, revealing the mature antler underneath.

Opening Reception | Cy Twombly: Paintings, Sculptures, Works on Paper


Working in Gaeta, Italy, and Lexington, Virginia, Twombly returned to painting at a large scale in the 2000s. The shift followed his 1994 retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the critical success of Lepanto, a suite of twelve paintings first shown at the 49th Biennale di Venezia in 2001. In these works, he adopted a new approach to color with palettes of lush, saturated hues. Slender lines and loops of paint balance expressive dynamism and elegance, while denser strokes evoke the petals of peonies and chrysanthemums. The paintings are imbued with the uninhibited spirit of Bacchanalia and the vivacity of fresh blossoms; at once vital and elegiac, they meditate on poetry, history, and myth.

Discussion | Did Rome Have a Grand Strategy? (online)


The publication of Edward Luttwak's The Grand Strategy of the Roman Empire in 1976 has continued to generate controversy, with many traditional historians contesting the notion that Rome developed a coherent grand strategy during the Imperial Era.

Dr. James Lacey, the Horner Chair of War Studies and Professor of Strategic Studies and Political Economy at Marine Corps War College and author of the recently published Rome: Strategy of Empire will take the Pro-Grand Strategy argument and Dr. Michael Taylor, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Albany will argue against the idea of a Roman Grand Imperial Strategy. Dr. Edward Luttwak, widely published defense analyst and writer, author of both The Grand Strategy of the Roman Empire: From the First Century A.D. to the Third and The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire has graciously agreed to be a special guest.
