Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Party | Traditional English Afternoon Tea


English-style tea, black tea, Pally's rich tea biscuit will be served. "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."- Henry James Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. While the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of 'afternoon tea' first appeared. Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o'clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o'clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880's upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o'clock.

Opening Reception | Coffee: Yui Kugimiya, David Schoerner, and Nahoko Press


The exhibition takes its name from the beloved brewed beverage, with each artist using coffee as a common subject matter. Nahoko Press, a small independent Tokyo imprint, published a book titled A Daibo Coffee Manual, written by Katsuji Daibo in 2015. Inspired by Daibo’s 38 years in pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee at his now defunct coffee house, the manual itself is as carefully crafted, typeset and letterpressed as Daibo’s hand-selected, hand-roasted beans. More than subject matter, process lies at the heart of all of the work, and in the case of Kugimiya, coffee also becomes the medium. She presents three charcoal drawings of Bakeneko, mythical cat-like creatures from Japanese folklore. Reminiscent of popular art forms such as Ukiyo-e, cats cradle steaming mugs of java, and emerge from layers of thin espresso washes. Kugimiya mines various aesthetics and assembles them in her own archeological manner. A record of time and place connects divergent locations and ideas.

Discussion | "Steadies” & “Crushes”: Interpreting Henry Street Settlement’s Queer History


Pride Month may be over, but at Henry Street they’re still celebrating! Henry Street’s visionary founder, Lillian Wald, was known to have had romantic relationships with two female activist-colleagues during the early 20th century. The panel will address those relationships, the larger community of women at Henry Street whom she called “the family,” and the dynamics of interpreting LGBTQ history through a modern lens.

Opening Reception | Poetry Is Not a Luxury: Book Arts and Oppositional Subjectivities in the U.S.


Poetry Is Not a Luxury considers how book arts have contributed to the recording of oppositional subjectivities in the U.S. The exhibition is titled after Audre Lorde’s 1977 essay on the intersections of creativity and activism that were not only essential to her own work but to a diverse group of feminist thinkers at the time. Recognizing that both creative work and activism are driven by subjectivity, Lorde argues that for women poetry is not a luxury but a vital necessity, as it provides a framework through which survival and the desire for change can be articulated, conceptualized, and transformed into meaningful action.

Play | Romeo and Juliet: Shakespeare in the Parking Lot


This popular New York summer institution is now in its 25th year. Its concept--presenting Shakespeare plays with a "poor theater" aesthetic in a working parking lot--is now widely imitated around the US and around the world, with productions as far away as New Zealand. The Drilling Company, led by Artistic Director Hamilton Clancy, has produced the attraction since 2005. The play exquisitely demonstrates the futility of partisanship, pleading for similar people to stop killing each other for reasons they no longer remember. Director Lukas Raphael will set the play in New York in the early 1990's, with the Montagues and Capulets imagined as families of a Lower East Side neighborhood. In this concept, the Capulets (Juliet's people) are long standing stewards of the neighborhood. Romeo's Montagues, on the other hand, are upwardly mobile, eager to rise above it.

Classical Music | Grammy Nominated Chamber Orchestra Performs Works By Tchaikovsky And More


Program Georg Muffat, (1653-1704), Concerto Grosso No. 12 "Propitia Sydera" (1701). Caroline Shaw, (1982), Entr'acte, (2011, adapted for String Orchestra by A Far Cry 2014). Lembit Beecher, (1980), Conference of the Birds, (2017, Premiered with A Far Cry, 2018). Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, (1840-1893), Serenade in C Major, Op. 48, (1880). A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. According to The New York Times, the self-conducted orchestra "brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied." A Far Cry has developed an innovative process where decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the "Criers." For each piece, the members elect a group of principals, and these five musicians guide the rehearsal process and shape the interpretation. Since each program includes multiple works, this multiplicity of leaders adds tremendous musical variety to the concerts. A Far Cry's omnivorous approach has led the group to collaborations with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Jake Shimabukuro, Urbanity Dance, and Roomful of Teeth. The orchestra has been embraced throughout the world with hundreds of performances coast to coast and across the globe, and a powerful presence on the Internet. In 2014, A Far Cry launched its in-house label, Crier Records, with the album Dreams and Prayers, which received critical acclaim and a Grammy nomination.

Discussion | Life After Incarceration: The Plight of Building a Career


Talk of the injustice of the criminal justice system is at an all-time high. But how much do we know about what happens once incarcerated individuals are released? This salon is an open conversation on the challenges of life after incarceration, specifically as they relate to the obstacles preventing returning citizens from building a career. The discussion will center on returning citizens, both as featured speakers and members of the audience. The salon will aim to create a better understanding of the challenges people have faced in building a career since their experience in prison.  Organizations in attendance will be encouraged to reflect on shifts they can make in response to the testimonies of returning citizens, who will voice their career ambitions. These organizations could possibly offer connections or career opportunities that address their needs. This salon features Julio Medina, founder and CEO of Exodus Transitional Community; Dominic Dupont, star of the documentary Raised in the System; Coss Marte, CEO and founder of Conbody—who after serving a 10-year prison sentence started his own fitness company—and Ashish Prashar, FRSA, who served time in London and then had a lengthy career in both British and American politics, serving as press secretary to the Mayor of London.

Concert | Americana And Baroque Folk Pop 


“In its own quiet way, I’m With Her is a supergroup” (The New York Times).  In their solo careers and with their other bands, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan have each been key players in the folk-Americana revival; as a sublime trio, they’ve become its heart and soul. I’m With Her is a band rooted in a rare alchemy: three celebrated songwriters coming together to create music that reveals entirely new possibilities in their distinct and deep-seated talents. Since forming in 2014, Watkins, Jarosz, and O’Donovan have imbued their songs with a sharply detailed lyricism, graceful musicianship, and—perhaps most powerfully—mesmerizing harmonies that endlessly reflect their extraordinary chemistry. The "exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop" (NPR Music) of Darlingside will set the tone for an evening of exceptional musicianship and beautiful harmonies. The Boston-based quartet draws frequent comparisons to late-'60s era groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Byrds, but their penchant for science fiction and speculative futurism counteracts any urge to pigeonhole their aesthetic as "retro."

Play | The Bacchae: The Classical Theatre of Harlem Presents Euripides’ Classic Tragedy


Set in the modern era, Dionysus (God of wine and ecstasy) returns to his hometown in order to clear his mother’s name and punish the insolent city for not allowing its citizens to worship him. The clash between Dionysus, played as a modern-day rock star and his cousin Pentheus, the uncompromising and moralistic king of the city, examines the consequences of a general public that blindly follows two vastly different leaders. Dionysus represents unbridled freedom and excess while on the other end of the spectrum, Pentheus epitomizes excessive law, order and rigidity. As society slides into fear and tribalism, its citizen’s rationale becomes clouded as they blindly take orders and pick sides rather than seek moderation and rationality. CTH’s interpretation is a lush and modern version of the classic Greek tragedy that tackles the ills of a culture obsessed with celebrity worship, social media and fear of the other, causing people to lose the ability to see the truth — that people in power are fallible…until it’s far too late.
