New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

As the rain pours down and the water keeps rising, a mother sits in a flooded basement, weeping. After her son is gunned down by police, Mary, a woman with a cracked past, finds herself paralyzed with grief. So her mother, sister, and daughter try to uplift and help her wade through the water, as she mourns. But when her tears begin to overflow, deep family secrets rise all around them. And once their painful past floats to the top, there's no telling who's going to drown. Written by Donja R. Love Directed by Saheem Ali

Plasticity and networks are today’s metaphors for the brain and mind. The idea that brains are plastic, made of dynamic networks, raises questions about the relation between physiology, selfhood, and social relations. Siri Hustvedt, Joseph E. LeDoux, and Jason Tougaw discuss social implications of recent brain research; artistic responses to theoretical neuroscience; and multidisciplinary circulation, convergence, and conflict surrounding questions about brain, self, and world. The panel discussion will be followed by a musical performance by So We Are, LeDoux’s musical duo with Colin Dempsey.  Featuring: Siri Hustvedt, Novelist, essayist, Lecturer in Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College Joseph E. LeDoux, New York University, Center for Neural Science Jason Tougaw, Queens College, English
