Film | Anne of the Thousand Days (1969) with Richard Burton


This film adaption of a Broadway play is based on the historical events surrounding the founding of the Church of England. Catherine of Aragon, empowered wife of King Henry VIII, has yet to give birth to an heir. King Henry's wandering eyes fall on the devout and nubile Anne Boleyn, who refuses his sexual advances. Henry eventually convinces Anne to marry him, but to move forward, the king must face a church that believes divorce is a sin. Director: Charles Jarrott Cast: Richard Burton, Geneviève Bujold, Irene Papas, Anthony Quayle, John Colicos Richard Burton established himself as a formidable Shakespearean actor in the 1950s, and gave a memorable performance as Hamlet in 1964. He is widely regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation. Burton was nominated for an Academy Award seven times, but never won. He received BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and Tony Awards for Best Actor. In the mid-1960s, Burton became a top box office star, and by the late 1960s, he was one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

Screening | Casa de Lava (1994): Portuguese drama


In only his second feature, Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa (Horse Money, In Vanda’s Room) reworks Jacques Tourneur’s classic I Walked with a Zombie into a reflection on his country’s colonial legacy. A nurse, Mariana, accompanies Leao to his home on the volcanic islands of Cape Verde after an accident leaves him in a coma — but he goes unrecognized by fellow denizens, leaving Mariana trapped with and eventually entranced by a mysterious community. Never before released in the U.S. and now beautifully restored, Casa de Lava foreshadows the masterful films that would follow.

Book Discussion | Translating the Jewish Freud: Psychoanalysis in Hebrew and Yiddish (online)


There is an academic interest in the "Jewish Freud," aiming to detect Jewish influences on Freud, his own feelings about being Jewish, and suppressed traces of Jewishness in his thought. This book takes a different approach, turning its gaze not on Freud but rather on those who seek out his concealed Jewishness. What is it that propels the scholarly aim to show Freud in a Jewish light? Author Naomi Seidman explores attempts to "touch" Freud (and other famous Jews) through Jewish languages, seeking out his Hebrew name or evidence that he knew some Yiddish. Tracing a history of this drive to bring Freud into Jewish range, Seidman also charts Freud's responses to (and jokes about) this desire. More specifically, she reads the reception and translation of Freud in Hebrew and Yiddish as instances of the desire to touch, feel, "rescue," and connect with the famous professor from Vienna.

This entertaining comedy finds disgraced former police officer Nestor Patou falling for beautiful Parisian prostitute Irma La Douce. Though Nestor becomes Irma's pimp, he can't stand the idea of her being with clients, so he devises a way to keep her all to himself. This scheme leads to plenty of trouble, however, and soon Nestor is forced to avoid his old law-enforcement peers in an attempt to stay with Irma and out of jail. Director: Billy Wilder Cast: Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine Jack Lemmon starred in over sixty films and was nominated for an Academy Award eight times, winning twice, and received other accolades, including six Golden Globe Awards (counting the honorary Cecil B.

Discussion | The Wars of the Middle East (online)


Admiral Michael Mullen takes an in-depth look at Israel's multifront war, US involvement, and what victory means in the 21st century. Only a few months ago, the Biden administration was celebrating relative stability in the Middle East. However, since October 7th, Israel has been involved in a multifront war in Gaza, Lebanon, and Syria. The US and its allies have also been drawn directly into military operations against the Houthis, including arguably the most significant naval engagements since World War II. Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen will be in conversation with AJU President Jeffrey Herbst to discuss Israel's military prospects, how the US can successfully exercise force to pursue its interests, and what victory means in the twenty-first century.

Opening Reception | Joel Mesler: Kitchens are good rooms to cry in


This major presentation marks the artist's fourth exhibition with the gallery and the first in New York, and will comprise new paintings, sculptures, and installations across two floors of the Beaux-Arts townhouse. Mesler examines and shares his personal journey from his youth in Los Angeles to the present day—achieved through an installation in three vignettes, each relating to childhood, adulthood, and midlife. Through a dazzling display of work across media, Mesler expounds on the insights of his earned experience, as well as the questions yet to be answered, in a presentation that is at once intimate and exuberant, reflective and bold.

Performance | Stories on Art, Incarceration, and Homelessness (in-person and online)


In this live performance, Gregory Frederick will draw from jazz-piano and storytelling to reflect on revolving doors between the mass-incarceration industrial complex, and the New York City homeless shelter system. As a multimedia artist, the performance will intertwine oral history, music and visual art to shed light on the vicissitudes of life behind bars, and the inherent challenges of recovery and redemption afterwards.  Gregory Frederick is a musician and visual artist. During and after military service in Vietnam and Korea, he spent thirty years pending back and forth between military detention centers, jails, and max-security prisons, before eventually landing in New York’s most infamous homeless shelter complex for mentally ill and substance addicted men, carefully sequestered on Wards’ Island.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: The Swimmer / Spotlight: Maud Madsen


The Swimmer Curated by Jonathan Rider Published in The New Yorker in the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, John Cheever’s "The Swimmer" is emblematic of mid-century America’s changing perception of its own relationship to class, idealism, and failure, evergreen issues as relevant today as sixty years ago. Cheever’s protagonist, Neddy Merrill—who “might have been compared to a summer’s day”—embarks on the novel adventure to swim home by way of his affluent neighbor’s swimming pools. What begins as a carefree midsummer Sunday devolves into something altogether different and nefarious; Neddy’s life and his grip on reality disappear, pool by pool, the closer he comes to finishing his journey and returning home… whether that’s the same day or perhaps many years later. This exhibition similarly confuses time and unfolds through a series of disappearances in bodies of water—in pools, lakes, and oceans—through serial works that concern loss and losing oneself. Navigating themes inherent in "The Swimmer" and Cheever’s broader oeuvre, including alcoholism, grandiosity, loss of innocence, selective memory, privilege, sexuality, etc., the exhibition trains an eye to the crumbling of an American dream, set against the glittering backdrop of a string of swimming pools. The ninth floor of the exhibition closely aligns itself with Cheever’s narrative and features a variety of painting, photography, and sculpture in which the body is suggested, but not depicted, positioning the viewer as the “swimmer” in space.  The exhibition’s tenth floor focuses almost exclusively on the figure—the body in water—and explores night swimming, locating the pool as an intimate, self-contained site for mystery and experimentation. Spotlight: Maud Madsen The Spotlight series includes a new or never-before-exhibited artwork paired with a commissioned piece of writing, creating focused and thoughtful conversations between the visual arts and authors, critics, poets, scholars, and beyond. In this iteration, the Spotlight features Maud Madsen's Backseaters, 2024. A text by art advisor and writer Maria Vogel accompanies the presentation.

Gradually, Adam is slowly won over by Athena, even at the detriment of his political future.

Her career spanned almost 70 years. She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Newcomer with her portrayal of Helen Kane in the 1950 film Three Little Words.

Barefoot Shakespeare Company is proud to bring this production to life for their 11th Season producing free Shakespeare in Central Park. The Winter's Tale will be directed by Barefoot Artistic Director and President Emily Gallagher. Step into the web of The Winter's Tale, where time slips through fingers like grains of sand and the stubborn weed of jealousy takes root, choking out reason and sowing discord. In this tale of tangled narratives and generational trauma, powerful women stand as pillars of support and strength, cultivating gardens of forgiveness amidst the barren landscape of lost time. This is a journey where stories intertwine like vines as hope blossoms, and where the only certainty is the transformative power of love.

Discussion | 100 Years of Neue Galerie in Vienna


Americans today associate the name Neue Galerie with New York's Museum of Austrian and German Art, founded by Ronald Lauder in 2001. However, the New York museum has a historical namesake, Otto Kallir's Neue Galerie, which opened its doors in Vienna in November 1923. The Neue Galerie represented such artists as Richard Gerstl, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin and, most especially, Egon Schiele. After the Nazis annexed Austria in 1938, Kallir, a Jew, was forced to flee. He and his family ended up in New York, where Kallir's Galerie St. Etienne (established in 1939) introduced Klimt, Schiele, and the other principal Austrian modernists to the U.S. Kallir's gentile secretary, Vita K?nstler, ran the Vienna gallery until 1948, when she returned it to him more or less intact. However, it proved difficult for Kallir to manage the Neue Galerie from New York, and in 1954, he sublet the premises to Monsignor Otto Mauer, an ardent champion of contemporary artists. The enterprise has since continued under the name Galerie n?chst St. Stephan, and it remains among today's leading galleries. This is a panel honoring and documenting the history of the original Neue Galerie. Veronika Floch, an art historian who has worked at numerous Austrian museums and is presently the archivist at the Galerie n?chst St. Stephan--Rosemarie Schwarzw?lder, will discuss the histories of the Neue Galerie and the Galerie n?chst St. Stephan in Vienna. Jane Kallir, President of the Kallir Research Institute, will talk about Otto Kallir's flight from Austria and his subsequent activities in the U.S. The discussion will be moderated by Stephanie Buhmann, Head of Visual Arts, Architecture & Design at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.

Book Discussion | Culture Strike: Art and Museums in an Age of Protest by Laura Raicovich


Curator and author Laura Raicovich joins us to discuss her book, Culture Strike: Art and Museums in an Age of Protest with Chi-hui Yang. In an age of protest, cultural institutions have come under fire. Protestors have mobilized against sources of museum funding, as happened at the Metropolitan Museum, and against board appointments, forcing tear gas manufacturer Warren Kanders to resign at the Whitney. That is to say nothing of demonstrations against exhibitions and artworks. Protests have roiled institutions across the world, from the Abu Dhabi Guggenheim to the Akron Art Museum. A popular expectation has grown that galleries and museums should work for social change. As Director of the Queens Museum, Laura Raicovich helped turn that New York municipal institution into a public commons for art and activism, organizing high-powered exhibitions that doubled as political protests. Then in January 2018, she resigned, after a dispute with the Queens Museum board and city officials. This public controversy followed the museum’s responses to Donald Trump’s election, including her objections to the Israeli government using the museum for an event featuring Vice President Mike Pence. In this lucid and accessible book, Raicovich examines some of the key museum flashpoints and provides historical context for the current controversies. She shows how art museums arose as colonial institutions bearing an ideology of neutrality that masks their role in upholding conservative, capitalist values. And she suggests ways museums can be reinvented to serve better, public ends.

Book Discussion | Ninetails: Reimagining Asian Folklore


A fox spirit avenges a teen girl by seducing her abuser. A shapeshifting woman finds herself chased through the woods by fox hunters; meanwhile, an assassination plot called Operation Fox Hunt unfolds against the last Queen of Korea. Chinese migrants hoping to make new lives as “paper children” in America find their pasts—and their hopes for the future—embodied in the foxes that haunt the harbor in 1900s Angel Island. In the nine tales of Ninetails, acclaimed poet Sally Wen Mao reimagines the fox spirit from Asian folklore—a shapeshifter, shaman, and seductress—as an icon of vengeance, solidarity and liberation. The characters of her stories are varied—from silicone sex dolls who come to life with new purpose, to women whose crushes manifest as stones—but they all reach for a common purpose: to find truth and belonging in a difficult world determined to consider them alien.

Talk | Artist Talk: Recent Video Work


A screening of Chloe Wise’s recent video work, “Told A Vision” (2023), followed by a talk with the artist.   Chloe Wise’s work grapples with the commercialism and consumerism that has permeated every facet of our lives, such that consumption has become intrinsically tied to the creation and construction of the self. In her kaleidoscopic video works, Wise blurs the line between fiction and reality, toying with our traditional expectations of advertising, fashion, and branding. Her video practice takes precise care to subvert and manipulate these sectors to the point of parody, using a familiar language that brings the audience “in” on the joke. But Wait, There’s More! replicates the sensation of channel surfing at the mercy of some unknown remote control holder. Told a Vision (2023) features fragments of commercials with uncanny similarities to those found on cable television, though the audience is never able to grasp what exactly is being sold. “No problems, just savings!” one commercial states. “Call now!” asserts another. “Side effects may include experiences,”a pharmaceutical spoof cautions. Brought together, Wise’s films present a poignant critique on postmodern consumer culture, and the fallacy that consumption can provide fulfillment or happiness. In each broken scene, the audience is advised and spoken to directly, but even the figures on screen take care to remind us repeatedly, “I do not know you.”

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Ouroboros


Yamani Nayar chooses the image of the ouroboros - a snake biting its own tail, which symbolizes the cyclical renewal of life, death and rebirth - as a metaphor for her own creative process. Guided by the knowledge of her "hand", the artist builds materially-invested, often life-size assemblages using ubiquitously available materials such as paper, plaster, studio detritus and printed ephemera. During this cumulative process of building, taking apart, "risking ruin" and burrowing into, ideas emerge intuitively, often springing from the subconscious. Once recognized, Nayar then clarifies and enriches what is coming to the fore, tapping into her own bodies of research such as Alchemy and Myth. These assemblages are built for the camera apparatus, which not only gives permanence to their continuously shifting gestalt, but also serves as the photographic "eye".

Book Discussion | The Most Human: Reconciling with My Father, Leonard Nimoy


For Adam Nimoy, living with his father -- who became internationally famous playing Spock on Star Trek -- was like living with a stranger. After years of estrangement, the son received a letter from his dad. That marked a turning point in their lives, a moment that cleared the way for a new relationship between them.
