Discussion | A Discussion About Renowned Modern Dance Choreographer Eleo Pomare


Dance educator and former member of the Eleo Pomare Dance Company, Dyane Harvey Salaam, along with company members Dr. Carl Paris, PhD and Robin Becker, will venture into the mind and soul of master creative Eleo Pomare—the man, the artist, and the maker of artists. Born in Colombia, Pomare was a dancer and choreographer who trained with renowned choreographers, including Jose Limon, and established the Eleo Pomare Dance Company in 1958. Pomare’s productions were often influenced by socio-political themes of the time and portrayed the Black experience incorporating elements of ballet, jazz and modern dance. Using video and archival photos, enhanced by fond memories of Eleo Pomare Dance Company members, this lecture offers intimate knowledge of the vastness of Pomare’s creativity. Registration required.

Discussion | Memories of Painter Morris Katz (online)


Do you have a Morris Katz story? Morris Katz made a name for himself as a painter who not only worked with incredible speed – whipping up paintings within just minutes – but who did so while engaging his audiences with Borscht Belt-style shtick and then auctioning the paintings off to all comers. Katz regularly brought his routine to Borscht Belt hotels and delighted audiences with his extraordinary speed. He holds the Guinness World Record for world's fastest painter, which he accomplished using only a palette knife and toilet paper. Famous for his "instant art," Katz is remembered as a prolific artist, selling more original paintings than any other artist in the world.   Celebrate the legacy of Morris Katz by sharing your Morris Katz story. This program will be held as a Zoom meeting, and attendees will be encouraged to share their favorite memories of Morris Katz. Senior Academic Advisor & Director of Exhibitions, Eddy Portnoy will provide opening remarks.

Book Club | The Promise by Silvina Ocampo


A woman relives the people and places of her life while stranded in the middle of the ocean... The premise of Argentinian writer Ocampo’s posthumously published novella, which she worked on for the final 25 years of her life, is a grand metaphor for the authorial condition. Completed in the late 1980s, at a time when Ocampo was grappling with the effects of Alzheimer’s, the book can be read as a treatise on the dissolution of selfhood in the face of the disease. However, its tactile insistence on the recurrence of memory, its strangeness, and its febrile reality are themes that mark the entirety of Ocampo’s oeuvre and articulate something more enduring even than death.

Opening Reception | John Ahearn and Rigoberto Torres: Walton Ave & Friends


Walton Ave & Friends unites nearly three decades of sculpture made both independently and in collaboration between sculptors John Ahearn and Rigoberto Torres. In 1979, Ahearn was artist-in-residence at the South Bronx alternative art space Fashion Moda and quickly drew attention for his public life casting workshop, resulting in The South Bronx Hall of Fame, a suite of radical busts of everyday people from the community. There he met a teenaged Torres, whose idea to bring the casting onto the streets changed the community and resulted in numerous collaborative public murals, including the seminal Back to School (1985), recreated and joined by portraits from across both artists’ practices.

Book Discussion | Life Underground: Encounters with People Below the Streets of New York


Beneath the surface of Manhattan’s Riverside Park run railroad tunnels, disused for decades, where over the years unhoused people have taken shelter. The sociologist Terry Williams ventured into the tunnel residents’ world, seeking to understand life on the margins and out of sight. He visited the tunnels between West Seventy- Second and West Ninety-Sixth Streets hundreds of times from 1991 to 1996, when authorities cleared them out to make way for Amtrak passenger service, and again between 2000 and 2020. Williams' lastest book charts a dispossessed space of New York City. The story he tells is not only about the specific people living in this  underground but about those living a shelterless life in the city. Every person underground is linked within a web of overlapping social worlds, above and below the ground. By delineating these social networks, Life Underground, through distinctive ethnographic eye and deep empathy, Williams provides an understanding of what life under below the surface entails.

Concert | Music for the Garden: A Musical Intervention


JJJJJerome Ellis describes themselves as a “Jamaican-Grenadian-American, disabled animal, stutterer, and artist” who speaks with a glottal block stutter, an involuntary speech dysfluency that manifests in pauses while talking. The artist explores relationships between Blackness, disabled speech, divinity, plant life, sound, and time. Their practice spans various formats, including soundscapes composed of saxophone, dulcimer, electronics, and vocals; spoken and written word; and theatrical performances. Music for the Garden includes a combination of live saxophone and electronic sound. Ellis views this as a musical intervention for both the people and the plants on the High Line. The artist worked with the park horticulture team to learn about the various plants growing by the Lawn, and incorporated this research into their musical performance—as JJJJJerome paces around the garden with their saxophone, they name and discuss the various species. In this vein, Music for the Garden is as much about creating music for the site and the human audience, as it is creating music for the flower and plant audience.

Discussion | The Six Realms: A Discussion of Karma, Belief, and Projected Mind-States (in-person and online)


Megan Mook and Kevin Townley will unpack traditional Buddhist teachings on the Six Realms in fresh and innovative ways. We’ll structure the evening around a slide show from Megan’s recent travels, showcasing depictions of the Wheel of Life. The Wheel of Life is a confronting, but often comical and ornate visual representation used to depict the six samsaric realms and their accompanying mind states. In looking at these ancient images, we’ll discuss the complexities of karma and belief, applying a critical interpretive lens without losing the magic and energy of the teachings. We’ll also unpack the emotional and mental mindstates of each of the six realms, looking at the ways we experience them in our daily lives. We’re thrilled to host Rob Ward once again on the viola.

Performance | No History: One-Man Show


Written by and starring Reynaldo Piniella, No History is a solo theater piece about Arturo Schomburg, a man who crossed oceans in a quest to preserve our history. This diasporic journey will fill us up with cornbread before transporting us to the frontlines of the fight for Cuban and Puerto Rican independence, the streets of New York City during the Harlem Renaissance, and back to the kitchen where it all began. We will experience the music of the Caribbean, the joy of eating soul food for the first time, the poetry of Harlem and rediscover San Juan Hill, the community that was uprooted to build Lincoln Center. With guest appearances from Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes and W. E. B. DuBois, this coming of age story will make us celebrate our shared history and inspire us to save our grandmother's recipes.

New York City-born singer-songwriter-guitarist Emily King has brought ever-evolving levels of nuance to her work, rooting each revelation in a mesmerizing blend of soul, R&B, and forward-thinking pop. Over the course of her already four-time GRAMMY-nominated career, King has collaborated with an impressive roster of artists, including Nas, Brittany Howard, Robert Glasper, Sara Bareilles, and John Legend. She is currently touring in support of her fifth LP, 2023's Special Occasion, a real-time exploration of the endless dimensions of heartbreak. King and longtime producer Jeremy Most engineered every track to reflect an intimate and enchanting look at the ways we love, grieve, and eventually stumble toward greater self-understanding.

Jazz | Jazz on the Pier


A true original, saxophonist George Braith has brightened jazz with his innovations—from his classic 1960s soul jazz recordings for Blue Note and Prestige, to his 1970s presentations at the lower Manhattan club Musart, which he ran, to his own, original instrument the Braithophone, which fuses soprano and alto saxophones into one horn. He has worked with many of the greats (Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Grant Green, Roy Haynes) and has even been commemorated in mosaic tile in the walls of the 2nd Ave subway. Well into his seventh decade in jazz, Braith is a living legend not to be missed.

Concert | Spontaneous Music for Synthesizer and Voice


Artist, curator, and composer Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe works primarily with, but not limited to, voice and a modular synthesizer for sound in the realm of spontaneous music. Along with analog video synthesis works, he has brought forth an A/V proposal that has been a focus of live performance and installations. The marriage of synthesis and the voice allows for a heightened physicality in the way of ecstatic music in this one-of-a-kind performance at the Atrium. The sensitivity of analog modular synthesis echoes the organic nature of vocal expression, which in turn creates a trancelike state.
