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.

Discussion | The Experience Of Trans Women of Color


The 1969 Stonewall Riots marked a turning point in the LGBTQ movement for civil rights, but the narrative of that event—and the half-century of activism that has followed—has often overlooked the experiences of marginalized groups within the LGBTQ community. On the fiftieth anniversary of the uprising, legendary activists Miss Major, Janet Mock, and Tourmaline draw on their collective decades of experience as trans women of color. They’ll also look back on their personal stories, artistic and cultural work, and the political insight they have gained throughout years of organizing for visibility, equity, and change.   Featuring: - Miss Major, transgender elder and activist - Janet Mock, bestselling author of Surpassing Certainty and Redefining Realness - Tourmaline, filmmaker, installation artist, and editor of Trap Door

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Other Echoes Inhabit the Garden


A two-person exhibition of works by artists Meena Hasan and Tommy Kham Other Echoes Inhabit the Garden takes its title from T.S. Elliot's first poem in his Four Quartets: Burnt Norton (1936) by way of Edward Said's speech at Toronto's York University in 1993. Both Hasan and Kha probe the power structures present in their images, questioning given hierarchies and suppositions. They ask: who is the subject, why and how is the viewer implicated, and how can the compositional lens become a tool? They cultivate the process of translating a person to image by approaching their subjects with self-awareness of their roles as artists, consistently implicating themselves in their images. Through this inquiry, the artists share a desire to articulate an Asian American experience by means of subtle manipulation of the everyday. Their works reveal complex and malleable ideas of self that lead to subject recognition, misrecognition and environments rich with textures and colors that mirror and distort the figures inhabiting them.

Dance Performance | Time is forever dividing itself toward innumerable futures: World-Premiere Dance


In Pam Tanowitz’s first outdoor site-specific work, the choreographer partners with New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns to conceptualize a new dance offering an alternative direction for the "Bessie" Award-winning dancer. Joined by an ensemble comprised of Pam Tanowitz Dance regulars and New York City Ballet guests, Tanowitz arranges the group into the tranquil landscape of the park with small stages covered in artificial turf. Accompanied by an original score for French horns by Ted Hearne, Tanowitz explores the tensions between legacies of classical ballet versus modern dance; the natural versus the unnatural; the past versus the present. Please note there is no formal seating in the park.
