Lecture | Taxonomies of Power: A Conversation on the State Silk Museum in Tbilisi (online)


In 2022, artist Olaf Nicolai was invited to investigate the archives of the State Silk Museum, Tbilisi, when he came across a rare collection of microscopic glass plate negatives. With the help of curator Nina Akhvlediani, DINEBA, Goethe-Institut and the British Library, the plates were digitized and transformed into the publication SERI(a). In early 2024, the images were printed for the first time and presented at Mishkin Gallery, Baruch College (CUNY) by the co-curators Alaina Claire Feldman and Mariam Shergelashvili, re-contextualized within an academic setting and with a new film by Georgian artist Andro Eradze. This online talk brings together Nicolai, Akhvlediani, Feldman, and Shergelashvili to discuss the evocative draw of the photographs, their legacy today, and their tentative future. This event will be recorded and is in collaboration with Goethe-Insititut New York.

Book Discussion | Creating the Hudson River Park: Environmental and Community Activism, Politics, and Greed (online)


Tom Fox discusses his new book. After the defeat of the $2.4 billion Westway plan to fill 234 acres of the Hudson in 1985, the stage was set for the revitalization of Manhattan's West Side waterfront. Between 1986 and 1998 the process focused on the basics like designing an appropriate roadway, removing noncompliant municipal and commercial activities from the waterfront, implementing temporary improvements, developing the Park's first revenue-producing commercial area at Chelsea Piers, completing the public planning and environmental review processes, and negotiating the 1998 Hudson River Park Act that officially created the Park. From 1999 to 2009 planning and construction were funded with public money and focused on creating active and passive recreation opportunities on the Tribeca, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, and Hell's Kitchen waterfronts. However, initial recommendations to secure long-term financial support for the Park from the increase in adjacent real estate values that resulted from the Park's creation were ignored. City and state politicians had other priorities and public funding for the Park dwindled. The recent phase of the project, from 2010 to 2021, focused on "development" both in and adjacent to the Park. Fox's first-person perspective helps to document the history of the Hudson River Park, recognizes those who made it happen and those who made it difficult, and provides lessons that may help private citizens and public servants expand and protect the public parks and natural systems that are so critical to urban well-being.

Opening Reception | The rose is the rose and is the cat: 3-Artist Exhibition


Artworks: Tamara K.E., Brian DeGraw, Tamo Jugeli The show’s title is a riff on Gertrude Stein’s famous line, “a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose,” itself a riposte to Shakespeare’s Romeo: “What's in a name? That which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet.” Stein boldly chose the spot underneath Juliet’s balcony as the place to pick a fight about semiotics. A rose is just a rose: a word, plain and simple. Beyond the word, however, the meaning is fluid and obscure, subject to the corrosion of time and cultural connotation. Stein, however, was a writer. Brian DeGraw, Tamo Jugeli, and Tamara K.E. are visual artists for whom language itself presents another hurdle of translation.

Writer, actor, filmmaker, studio head and media titan Tyler Perry is America’s consummate multihyphenate. But underneath this entertainment behemoth is a man working humbly to heal his childhood trauma by transforming his pain into promise. Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story, a nod to his mother’s love, is a tender and intimate portrait of visionary and innovator Tyler Perry: his harrowing but faithful road to the top of an industry that didn’t always include him. Following the screening, co-directors Gelila Bekele and Armani Ortiz will join to lead the audience into the inner-world of a man, whose story has never fully been told, as he becomes a father and a media mogul with a mission to pave his own road to the top. The product is a profound lesson on remembering where you came from to know where you want to go.

Talk | Solidarity and Persecution: Lesbian Experiences in Nazi Germany (online)


The fates of lesbian women in Nazi Germany have long been contested. When the Memorial to Homosexuals Persecuted Under Nazism opened in Berlin in 2008 it was an occasion for protest. Lesbian activists were frustrated that the monument focused exclusively on the fates of gay men, insinuating that women had not also faced persecution. This talk by Samuel Clowes Huneke, assistant professor of history at George Mason University, recounts several life stories of lesbians who experienced the Nazi dictatorship, highlighting the many trajectories that queer women followed in those twelve years. It argues that lesbians did, in fact, face persecution, ranging from everyday harassment and surveillance all the way to imprisonment in concentration camps. At the same time, the talk recovers these women’s agency, contending that many of them resisted fascism with solidarity that cut across lines of class, race, and gender.  Samuel Clowes Huneke is assistant professor of history at George Mason University.
