Talk | When Old Uptown Was Young: Irish, Jewish and Greek Immigrants in Washington Heights and Inwood (online)


Upper Manhattan is well known as the site of the largest Dominican community in the United States, but from the 1920s to the 1980s it was the home of large communities of Irish, Jewish and Greek immigrants and their children.

Talk | By Design: The Life and Work of the Artist Dietrich


Gregory Dietrich takes you on an epic journey about the life and career of his father, the Swedish-American artist “Dietrich”, who resolved at an early age to dedicate his life to becoming a fine artist, and eventually fulfilled his dream while distinguishing himself in a variety of design-related fields along the way. Hailing from Sweden at the age of 21, Dietrich Grunewald (1916-2003) came to America in 1938 to pursue a career as a fine artist. In the ensuing years, he worked as an etcher and a portrait artist in San Francisco; a naval draftsman in the Pacific Northwest; a scenic designer in San Francisco and Hollywood; and a wallpaper and textile designer in West Hollywood. Twenty-five years after his arrival in the US, a six-day exhibition of his oil paintings in Beverly Hills drew record crowds, making it the largest private exhibition the city had ever witnessed and paving the way for his future success as a fine artist. But such journeys are rarely without struggle and Dietrich’s life was marked by physical injury and emotional tragedy that took a toll on himself and his loved ones. In the face of these life-altering circumstances, “By Design: The Life and Work of the Artist Dietrich” tells the story of a man of singular resolve, who was not bound by conventional wisdom but instead fueled by eternal optimism and the belief that the creative spirit can prevail during the darkest of times.

Discussion | Eco-Poiesis Beyond Empire


Curator and writer Omar Berrada and scholar Sarah Cervenak to present on their intersectional explorations of ecology, migration, gender, race, and coloniality. Cervenak will draw on excerpts from her two recent monographs, which attend to how Black women artists have taken up questions of wandering and gathering as ecological desire in their visual practices. This will be followed by Berrada’s reading of a suite of poems that offer up landscape and exilic distance to grapple with the politics of translation and the phenomenology of imperialism. Together, these presentations center the force of the poetic imagination in figuring alternative environmental possibilities.
