Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Lecture | The ‘Unique-Traditional’ in Poetry, Life, and Translation


Sophia Parnok was a poet who resisted modernism, but her stylistically “traditional” poems express a unique point of view in Russian poetry. Conversely, Parnok’s one-time lover, Marina Tsvetaeva, staunchly resisted traditional poetic diction, yet each of her stylistically “unique” long poems basically tells the same time-worn lyrical story. This paradox is a central concern of Professor Diana Burgin's recent book on Tsvetaeva’s long poems, Five Hard Pieces. In this talk, Burgin will discuss certain “unique-traditional” passages in these poems in order to show how some of them seem to deny a rather ordinary long-dead love affair while all of them resist conventional translation of their unique living words.

Lecture | How are Immigrants, Conservatives, and Public Policy Interacting at the Grass Roots?


Based on original research, the seminar links the problems immigrants face in integrating in new communities across eight states in the US. The seminar will focus on evaluating for the audience how public policy makers and communities have aimed to welcome immigrants through public policy, on the one hand, and resist immigrant integration on the other. Specific attention will be paid to recent conservative policies (focused on education) and politics (linked to the Tea Party) as they relate to the rising population of immigrants using county-level data. Speaker Heath Brown is associate professor of public policy at John Jay College.

Lecture | Why Is the Economics of Climate Change So Difficult and Controversial?: An Economist's Apology


The economic analysis of climate change presents an incredibly difficult intellectual challenge. It compels the economist to confront issues that push economic analysis to the breaking point – and sometimes well beyond. Economists are forced to grapple with many issues that are novel or that have previously been swept aside. The questions being raised are of supreme importance, but do not often lend themselves to simple or easy answers. This talk will provide a fast-paced crash course on why the economics of climate change is so especially difficult and so especially controversial. Speaker: Martin L. Weitzman, Research Professor of Economics, Harvard University

Opening Reception | (My) East of Eden: Growing Up In Vietnam During The War


Pipo Nguyen-duy’s  (My) East of Eden. While working as a Guggenheim fellow to document Vietnamese war amputees in 2012, Pipo Nguyen-duy began working on (My) East of Eden in the Mekong Delta. This project is the artist’s attempt to reclaim his childhood memories of growing up in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Beyond serving as the means to tell his stories, Nguyen-duy intends for these images to address issues such as legacy, hope, and regeneration. Working with rural Vietnamese children in school uniforms, the artist created portraits and staged photographs reminiscent of 19th-century British landscape paintings where the environment and its inhabitants coexist in harmony.

Author Reading | Females: A Concern


“Everyone is female”—this is the first of several “untenable claims” presented by Andrea Long Chu in her forthcoming book. Drawing inspiration from Valerie Solanas’s SCUM Manifesto and her forgotten play Up Your Ass, this lecture whips through a variety of ugly objects (films, manifestos, performance art, psychoanalysis, porn, and the alt-right) to give a portrait of femaleness as a universal category of self-ablation against which all politics—even feminist politics—revolts.  Andrea Long Chu is a writer and critic completing her doctorate at New York University. Her writing has appeared, or will soon, in n+1, Boston Review, The New York Times, New York, Artforum, Bookforum, Chronicle of Higher Education, 4Columns, differences, Women & Performance, TSQ, and Journal of Speculative Philosophy.

Opening Reception | Garden: An Installation On Biblical Garden Of Eden


The Garden installation by Judy Fox reflects upon biblical Eden, where a Serpent tempts Eve to taste fruit from the forbidden tree, a transgression she shares with Adam. The central figure of this installation is Eve, as she first perceives the unknown. Her inquisitive eye is caught by a surrealist "Snake Tree" with a visceral sensuality and an apple red face. In a corner, Young Cain and Abel, outfitted with Sumerian hair, fight grimly in a coupling transposed from genesis scenes in Christian art. Animated plants adorn the walls of the installation. They are built of biological themes of growth, competition, reproduction, and physiology, framing the scene with an evolutionary take on creation. Sculptor Judy Fox has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the “Anonymous Was a Woman” Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the National Academy of Design, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the New York Foundation for the Arts. She has had solo exhibitions at: The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu; Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, WI; Kunsthalle im Pallazo, Liestal, Switzerland.

Author Reading | H.G. Adler: A Life in Many Worlds


The biography of H.G. Adler (1910-88) is the story of a survivor of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, and two other concentration camps who not only lived through the greatest cataclysm of the 20th century, but someone who also devoted his literary and scholarly career to telling the story of those who perished in over two dozen books of fiction, poetry, history, sociology, and religion. And yet for much of his life he remained almost entirely unknown. Author Eric Banks is a writer and editor and the director of the New York Insitute for the Humanities. A former senior editor of Artforum, Banks relaunched Bookforum in 2003 and served as the publication’s editor in chief until 2008.

Author Reading | Un biculturalismo negato: Italian Writers in the U.S.


Together with a theoretical introduction, this volume presents five examples of “Italian/American” fiction writers and poets who live overseas — in our case the United States — and are part of what some have called "Italian literature" of the Italian diaspora. The five writers are representative of this long tradition of writing in Italian in the United States. As author Anthony Julian Tamburri argues in the first chapter, the notion of the "Italian" writer might benefit from a theoretical-methodological revision that concerns not so much the creative as the critical perspective.

Talk | Artist Talk: Korean Modernism


As an early member of the Dansaekhwa art movement, Suh Seung-Won (b. 1941) presents the theoretical basis for Korean modernism. For over 50 years, Suh has expressed his aesthetic views on the simultaneity of time and space through his exploration of interactions between geometric patterns and backgrounds. Suh’s firm investment into this aesthetic philosophy and the consistency of his artwork over the past 50 years is a remarkable feat of consistency, maintaining relevance in a dialogue of temporary aesthetics constantly in flux. Art critic and curator Raphael Rubinstein will address the work of Suh Seung Won in the context of 20th century abstraction and contemporary painting, noting how Suh has developed a distinct approach that highlights the perceptual, meditative qualities of abstraction in which the borders between figure and ground seem to dissolve.

His works have been featured in key international exhibitions, including Five Korea Artists, Five Kinds of White at the Tokyo Gallery (1975), Korea: Facet of Contemporary Art at the Tokyo Museum (1983), Art Contemporain Coreén at the Cordeliers Convent in Paris (1995), The Facet of Korean and Japanese Contemporary Art at the Gwangju Biennale (2000), and Origin at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris (2016).

Discussion | The East Village in the 60s


Many fondly look back on the 60s as the heyday of the East Village when throngs of youth descended on the neighborhood. Diggers arrived from San Francisco and opened a free store on East Tenth Street, Bill Graham turned a local theater into the Fillmore East, be-ins were held in Tompkins Square Park, and artists and craftsmen offered their wares in local shops. The arts flourished during the period, as many influential theater, poetry, and dance groups formed which helped reshape American culture—and continue today. St. Mark’s Church became a focal point for poets, political activists, radical community organizing, and dance and theater groups. Ellen Stewart started Café La MaMa, presenting theatrical works in a basement on East Ninth Street. Rock music from the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane to The Group Image bellowed from the Tompkins Square bandshell at free concerts. While the era has become mythologized over time, this evening Howl! Happening invites a panel of intrepid souls who lived in the East Village during the 60s to reflect on their experiences. About the Panelists Cary Abrams is a poet, journalist, writer, and historian whose work has been featured in numerous publications. He has taught history in New York City public schools for many years and has worked on numerous projects documenting the history of the Lower East Side—including working with the Lower East Side History Project. Penny Arcade fled her working-class Italian immigrant family at age 17, arriving in the East Village where she became a member of John Vaccaro’s Play-House of the Ridiculous. In 1969, she performed with Jackie Curtis in Femme Fatale at La MaMa E.T.C. She appeared in Warhol’s film Women in Revolt. Her career has spanned half a century, during which time she has become a world-renowned performance artist. Agosto Machado has had an equally lengthy career as a star of stage and screen, performing in films including Jack Smith and the Destruction of Atlantis; Beautiful Darling: The Life and Times of Candy Darling, Warhol Superstar; Pay It No Mind: Marsha P. Johnson; and most recently, Ruminations. Agosto has performed in countless La MaMa productions, often sharing the stage with Ethyl Eichelberger. He is worthy of being declared a national treasure. Ben Morea moved to the East Village in 1958. He cofounded Black Flag & Up Against The Wall Motherfucker, a group which organized numerous political actions in the 60s. Ben relates during that period the group operated 12 apartments for young runaways in the neighborhood. He is an acclaimed artist, in addition to possessing great organizational skills and visionary ideas. Robert Watlington is a visual artist, poet, and actor. His paintings have been exhibited in numerous galleries and shows in New York City as well as Europe, and are included in many influential collections. He was featured in Bethany Jacobson’s film Raw Zones, shot on rubble-strewn lots of the East Village and shown as part of a MoMA PS1 installation in 1987.
