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.

Concert | Composition And Improvisation In The Medieval Time


Satono Norizuki, clavisimbalum; Patricia Ann Neely, vielle. Today, only a part of the instrumental music repertoire in the medieval period is still extant, because musicians in those days often didn’t write down their compositions. They usually performed pieces in the improvisatory style. This program includes dance music and keyboard transcriptions of secular works with varying degrees of decoration and elaboration. Patricia Ann Neely has appeared with many early music ensembles including, the Folger Consort, Smithsonian Chamber Players, the New York Collegium, the Washington Bach Consort, Amor Artis, Glimmerglass Opera, New York City Opera, the Boston Camerata, Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, The Newberry Consort, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, The New York Consort of Viols, and Early Music New York, among others, and was a founding member of the viol consort Parthenia. Satono Norizuki, an early keyboardist (harpsichord, clavisimbalum, clavichord, and organ), has performed frequently as a soloist and a basso continuo player in North America, Europe, and her native country Japan.

Opening Reception | Benevolent Light, Benevolent Life?: 2 Artists


An exhibition of work by Guy Nelson and Grant Stoops, curated by Lauren Hirshfield. The exhibition includes painting, sculpture, and mixed media. Both artists’ works discuss tropes of loneliness, mystery, and questioning reality. What do we notice on the periphery? What happens when all that we believe to be true is shattered by our own perception? Nelson wrestles with these feelings in his work, painting images and building sculptures that discuss the fear of the unknown. Stoops “plays God” through his making process, constructing amorphous characters from clay and capturing them in still frame moments on canvas. Some are quite ominous, a few of the creatures are grotesque, and it’s all a bit absurd......

Opening Reception | The Unusual Suspects: A View of Abstraction


This show examines some key elements of today’s abstract painting. While scarcely an atlas, it does provide a way to look at the current state of affairs. The typical 20th century process of movement formation stopped (especially for painting and doubly so for abstraction) in the late 1980s or at the latest, the early 1990s. Yet all the while, painting continued unabated. The art in this show, made by painters ranging in age from their 30s to their 90s, does not fit neatly into sets of fixed categories, but rather organizes itself around related points and orientations on the larger map of abstraction – in this case an interest in color, logical organization, careful facture, and indirect but compelling social and theoretical reference.

Author Reading | When Brooklyn Was Queer: A History


Hugh Ryan’s When Brooklyn Was Queer is a groundbreaking exploration of the LGBT history of Brooklyn, from the early days of Walt Whitman in the 1850s up through the queer women who worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during World War II, and beyond. Ryan will discuss in new light the fundamental questions of what history is, who tells it, and how we can only make sense of ourselves through its retelling; and shows how the formation of the Brooklyn we know today is inextricably linked to the stories of the incredible people who created its diverse neighborhoods and cultures. Hugh Ryan's writing has appeared in the New York Times, Tin House, Buzzfeed, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Out, and other venues. He earned an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars, and he received a 2016-2017 Martin Duberman Fellowship at the New York Public Library, a 2017 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Nonfiction Literature, and a 2018 residency at the Watermill Center.

Screening | Conversations with Gay Elders: Pre-Stonewall Perspectives


A screening of a segment of Conversations with Gay Elders about the life of Gene Fedorko. In Conversations with Gay Elders, filmmaker David Weissman (The Cockettes, We Were Here) fosters a cross-generational collaboration. He works with gay men in their 20s and 30s to profile gay men in their 70s and 80s whose journeys of self-discovery precede the era of Stonewall and gay liberation. Conversations with Gay Elders explores how these men navigated being “different” long before there was any social or political context for a positive LGBT self-image. Panel discussion to follow with Paul C. Bellman, MD, a physician who worked for decades on the frontlines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Jack Waters and Peter Cramer, cultural avant-gardists of the LES, who have seen it all. Q & A to follow.

Author Reading | Limbo: The Consequences of Being Stuck


In a world that demands faith in progress and growth, Limbo is a companion for the stuck, the isolated, delayed, stranded and those in the dark. Fusing memoir with a meditation on creative block and a cultural history of limbo, Dan Fox considers the role that fallow periods and states of inbetween play in art and life. Limbo is an essay about getting by when you can’t get along, employing a cast of artists, ghosts and sailors – including the author’s older brother who, in 1985, left England for good to sail the world – to reflect on the creative, emotional and political consequences of being stuck, and its opposites.

Author Reading | Paternity: The Elusive Quest for the Father


For most of human history, the notion that paternity was uncertain appeared to be an immutable law of nature. The unknown father provided entertaining plotlines from Shakespeare to the Victorian novelists and lay at the heart of inheritance and child support disputes. But in the 1920s new scientific advances promised to solve the mystery of paternity once and for all. The stakes were high: fatherhood has always been a public relationship as well as a private one. It confers not only patrimony and legitimacy but also a name, nationality, and identity. The new science of paternity, with methods such as blood typing, fingerprinting, and facial analysis, would bring clarity to the conundrum of fatherhood--or so it appeared. Suddenly, it would be possible to establish family relationships, expose adulterous affairs, locate errant fathers, unravel baby mix-ups, and discover one's true race and ethnicity. Tracing the scientific quest for the father up to the present, with the advent of seemingly foolproof DNA analysis, Nara Milanich shows that the effort to establish biological truth has not ended the quest for the father.

Discussion | The Artist Isn't (Physically) Present: Women in Digital Art


An engaging discussion among celebrated digital artists Molly Soda, Claudia Hart, and Faith Holland, followed by a reception with wine and sparkling CBD beverages courtesy of Recess. Works from artist panelists will be on display. While new technologies have been giving birth to new mediums for expression since time immemorial, digital art has only begun to scrape the surface of the mainstream, especially as an art form with meaningful market value. Many of today’s digital art distribution methods bypass the traditional gatekeepers that have led us to an art market shaped by the homogenous elite but lack the framework that has allowed the traditional art world to operate successfully from a business standpoint. This new wave of artistic exchange that exists in URL, not IRL, has heralded both new freedoms and new risks, especially for those who diverge from what a “master artist” once looked like. In this discussion, led by Meural Head of Curation Poppy Simpson, prominent female-identifying artists will discuss the ways in which they are building their digital art practice both within and outside of traditional art world systems and their predictions for what a digitally driven and more inclusive art market might look like in the future.
