Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Author Reading | Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution


Air pollution prematurely kills seven million people every year, including over a hundred thousand Americans. It is linked to strokes, heart attacks, cancers, dementia, and premature birth. In Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution, Beth Gardiner travels the world from the halls of power in Washington, D.C. to the U.K., Poland, and India, exposing the political decisions and economic forces that have kept us breathing dirty air. In the United States, air is far cleaner than it once was. But advances have failed to keep up with science, which indicates that even lower pollution levels are causing damage, and deregulation stands to put decades of progress at risk. In other parts of the world where pollution is far worse, nations are scrambling to replicate the achievements of the former standard bearer, the US Environmental Protection Agency. While the future is far from certain, Choked shows that we hold the power to build a cleaner, healthier future: one in which breathing is safe for all. Beth Gardiner is a London-based journalist whose writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, National Geographic, Time, and Smithsonian, and she has provided commentary on MSNBC, the BBC and Britain's Sky News.

Author Reading | The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming


This bestseller is a gripping travelogue of our near future: "It is worse, much worse, than you think." In his much anticipated book, David Wallace-Wells brings into focus the impending food and water shortages, rising sea levels displacing tens of millions of people, and the real danger of much of the planet becoming inhospitable to life. He points to the role of the reigning economic and political structures in this crisis. And he shows that the responsibility to act and avoid catastrophe falls on a single generation. David Wallace-Wells is deputy editor of New York Magazine.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Uranyl Nitrate (UO2(NO3)2)


A conversation between artist Robert Barry and curator Christian Rattemeyer. In 1969, Harald Szeemann included Barry in When Attitudes Become Form, his notorious exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern. Responding to the invitation, Barry, who was unable to be present for the installation, had a small amount of radioactive Uranyl Nitrate placed on the roof of the Kunsthalle. Sixty years later Barry has created the work anew on the roof terrace of Swiss Institute. With a half-life of 4.5 billion years, Uranyl Nitrate (UO2(NO3)2), is a "permanent," site-specific intervention. Against the backdrop of this new commission, Robert Barry will be in conversation with Christian Rattemeyer on his collaborations with Szeemann.

Jazz | Sassy, Expressive Jazz Tenor Saxophonist


Houston Person is a jazz tenor saxophonist who started to become a household name after recording a series of albums for the Prestige label in the 1960s.

Dance Performance | Sensation 1/This Interior: A Work for Six Dancers


Ligia Lewis works as a choreographer and dancer. Her affectively charged choreographies move across the fields of dance, theater, and visual art. Troubling the stage and the body as sites of stable representation, Lewis unsettles their edges by inviting frictions and ruptures into her creative process. Lewis expands her solo work Sensation 1 into an hour-long performance for six dancers. The figure of a vocalist who holds her concluding note forms the basis for Sensation 1/This Interior. Lewis stretches this climatic moment into a sustained articulation of feeling and affect across multiple bodies. An ecstatic choreographed form emerges, dissolving the singular gesture of the iconic pop diva into a collective experience.
