Opening Reception | (IN-PERSON, indoors) David Korty: Going Back to Go Forward


Sometimes to go forward, you have to go back. Peering into the past, of childhood dreams, those phantasms and fantasies in the fold between sleep and waking, that place where you can x-ray spec into a body of work, the silhouettes of men with hats, of strokes of paint like snakes and corporeal presences, Gregor Samsa and Johnny Walker skulking in the patterns of the picture plane. The colors are all dripped in acid, vivid hues from a nuclear age, left out in the sun to fade despite their radioactive brilliance. David Korty's most recent paintings beam a certain innocent grace at first glance, but they get more sinister the longer I look at them. The surfaces echo children's animations from a far-off country, simultaneously familiar and exotic, but in their depths, the behatted man's eyes multiply, the subtle brush strokes grow more intense, fractured, almost collaged with scissors that can reform a body with the fluid grace of paint more than any scrap culled from the curling pages of an old magazine.

Classical Music | Baroque Music for Violin and Harpsichord (virtual)


More than a century before Liszt’s and Berlioz’s names became synonymous with programmatic music, Giuseppe Tartini’s instrumental evocation of Tasso and Virgil was so powerful that he himself was reported to go into a mystical trance while playing. Jude Ziliak, violin, and Elliot Figg, harpsichord, will present some of the earliest and most transporting program music ever written.

Author Reading | Horse Crazy and the Holocaust, with New York Times Reporter Sarah Maslin Nir (virtual)


As a Times staff reporter for the last decade, Sarah Maslin Nir has seen a lot. She covered the escape of two inmates from the Clinton Correctional Facility; camped out overnight at Zuccotti Park with Occupy Wall Street protesters; attended 25 parties over five days; and conducted a sweeping investigation into New York City's nail salon industry, for which she was a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Maslin Nir's latest project is Horse Crazy: The Story of a Woman and a World in Love with an Animal, a new book that traces her lifelong obsession with horses and provides a window into the lesser-known corners of the equestrian world. Throughout her career, Maslin Nir has carried the stories of her family with her--including her father, Yehuda Nir, who survived the Holocaust in Poland and became a prominent psychiatrist who specialized in treating trauma among New York City's Hasidic Jews. This is a program exploring Maslin Nir's family background, fascinating career, and identity as the descendant of Holocaust survivors. She'll be interviewed by Stephanie Butnick, Tablet Magazine Deputy Editor and co-host of the leading Jewish podcast "Unorthodox."

Concert | Tear: A Vocal Performance (virtual)


Vocalist, performer, composer, and educator Samita Sinha premieres Tear, an investigation of potentiality and emergence through voice. A tear is the aftermath of ruin: what is left when all that is broken, and has been broken, is exposed. It is also an opening, a space of transformation and potential for all that is not yet born. How do we stay with this tear? How can a single body in pandemic isolation work in the tear, through the material of voice and body, to recover a thread? Tear unravels from a single utterance of a Hindustani classical vocal composition, delicately weaving breath, body, and tone with the sound of the ektaara (one-stringed instrument).

Author Reading | The Portrait of a Mirror: Reinventing the Myth of Narcissus (Zoom)


A. Natasha Joukovsky presents her exquisitely self-reflexive debut, a stunning reinvention of the myth of Narcissus as a modern novel of manners. The lives of two young, well-heeled couples cross and tangle over the course of a summer, and they’re all enraptured by one another and too engulfed in desire to know what they want—despite knowing just how to act. In this wickedly fun debut, Joukovsky crafts an absorbing portrait of modern romance, rousing real sympathy for these flawed characters even as she skewers them.

The Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma—nicknamed “Black Wall Street”—was the site of a race-based massacre in 1921. Rarely acknowledged in the decades that followed, it resulted in as many as 300 deaths and more than 10,000 left homeless. Marking the 100th anniversary of the Greenwood Massacre, Derrick “D-Nice” Jones presents a civic–special edition of his popular Club Quarantine to showcase arts and music as a powerful driver of building and rebuilding communities. Joining him is Valeisha Butterfield Jones, the Recording Academy’s first-ever Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer.

New York City Ballet presents Balanchine's Vienna Waltzes. Created in 1977 and set to waltzes by Johann Strauss II, Franz Lehar, and Richard Strauss, this work of grand scale features more than 50 dancers. Through Rouben Ter-Arutunian's evolving scenery, Ronald Bates' lighting, and Karinska's costumes, the last that the famed designer created for the Company, the ballet transforms from a sylvan forest glen to a dance hall to a glittering society cafe to, at last, a majestic mirrored ballroom. This performance was filmed in 2013 and features Rebecca Krohn, Tyler Angle, Megan Fairchild, Anthony Huxley, Erica Pereira, Sean Suozzi, Teresa Reichlen, Ask la Cour, Maria Kowroski and Jared Angle in the principal roles. The streaming will be available until Jun 17th.
