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.

Film | Little Women (2018): Period Drama On 1860s Massachusetts


Four sisters are raised by a free-thinking mother in Civil War-era New England. 112 min. Director: Clare Niederpruem. Starring Sarah Davenport, Lea Thompson, Allie Jennings.  The movie is the eighth adaptation of the 1868 novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott. Little Women (the book) "has been read as a romance or as a quest, or both. It has been read as a family drama that validates virtue over wealth", but also "as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well". According to critics, Alcott created a new form of literature, one that took elements from Romantic children's fiction and combined it with others from sentimental novels, resulting in a totally new format.

Lecture | Why Care About What There Is?


There’s the question of what there is, and then there’s the question of what ultimately exists. Many contend that, once we have this distinction clearly in mind, we can see that there is no sensible debate to be had about whether there are such things as properties or tables or numbers, and that the only ontological question worth debating is whether such things are ultimate (in one or another sense). Speaker Daniel Korman argues that this is a mistake. Taking debates about ordinary objects as a case study, he shows that the arguments that animate these debates bear directly on the question of which objects there are and cannot plausibly be recast as arguments about what’s ultimate.

Lecture | Deweyan and Confucian Ethics: A Challenge to the Ideology of Individualism


John Dewey, in his resistance to foundational individualism, declares that individual autonomy so conceived is a fiction; for Dewey, it is association that is a fact. In his own language: “There is no sense in asking how individuals come to be associated. They exist and operate in association.” In a way that resonates with Confucian role ethics, the revolutionary Dewey particularizes the fact of associated living and valorizes it by developing a vision of the habitude of unique, defused, relationally-constituted human beings. That is, he develops a distinctive, if not idiosyncratic language of habits and “individuality” to describe the various modalities of association that enable human beings to add value to their activities and to transform mere relations into a communicating community. Speaker Roger T. Ames is Humanities Chair Professor at Peking University, Co-Chair of the Academic Advisory Committee of the Peking University Berggruen Research Center, and Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Hawai’i.

Opening Reception | A Heart-Shaped Face: A 2-Artist Exhibition


A two-person exhibition featuring the work of Sophia Narrett and Paul Rouphail. Both artists—through the mediums of thread and paint respectively—are invested in formal arrangement. Like Zubaran’s carefully constructed “bodegones,” or Manet’s crowds, the placement of people and items possesses equal parts objectivity and sensuality. The spaces in Narrett’s and Rouphail’s work—orchestrated and rendered in seductive clarity—emphasize the strangeness of a seemingly familiar domestic world.

Opening Reception | Jan’s Pond: Exhibition By An Artist Whose Work Has Featured in The New Yorker and New York Times


There’s a pond or a puddle, depends on how you look at it, that occupies one gig of pride beyond the tree line. It has proven to be its surroundings most expressive feature, an eye of earth that allows reflection, regardless of its depth. Which is impossible to decipher anyhow and to comprehend it is to injure eternity. This pond is Jan’s pond. It is potentially infinite and probably minute. The perfect setting for an empath to ponder the difference of ice and sewage, a pool overflowing from the hose left on, a crooked cuckoo that never chimes, a bad case of island greed, a self reliant duck who calls this pond home. A place to meet and give each other a new sip of that musty old pond that we are. You can be sure of two things at Jan’s pond, whatever is reflected is true and that someone was liquidated the day it was created. Artist Nathaniel de Large received his BA from San Diego State University and MFA from Claremont Graduate University. His work has been featured in The New Yorker, ArtNews, ArtNet, the New York Times, Artforum, and Vulture.

Lecture | George Plante: Artist and Propagandist at War


Scottish artist George Plante did not enter World War II as an artist but as a volunteer radio operator in the British merchant fleet. There he spent more than two years engaged in the long-running and fierce Battle of the Atlantic, splitting his time between Britain and the United States. But while dodging U-boats and battling the elements, he also painted. Every time his tanker docked in New York he pursued contacts in the worlds of art and advertising. Even in the midst of a devastating conflict, he never lost sight of his devotion to his craft. Very quickly, he caught the attention of agents of the British Ministry of Information and of the War Artists Advisory Committee. They recruited him to use his paintings of the war at sea for what was seen as a vital effort to rally Americans for the war effort in Britain. In March 1943 Plante’s nautical days ended abruptly after his tanker was torpedoed and sank. Surviving and returning to Britain, he was reassigned to work closely with the Americans in Egypt and Italy, this time to use his art as overt propaganda, both to demonize the Nazi and Fascist enemy and to arouse opposition to them among occupied peoples. Speaker Kathleen Broome Williams, a graduate of Wellesley College and Columbia University, holds a Ph.D. from City University of New York. She is the author of Grace Hopper: Admiral of the Cyber Sea, a North American Society for Oceanic History award winner, Secret Weapon: U.S. High-Frequency Direction Finding in the Battle of the Atlantic, and Improbable Warriors: Women Scientists and the U.S. Navy in World War II, which won a History of Science Society book award. Currently, she is a professor of history at Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, California, and lives in Oakland, CA.

Discussion | The Golden Age of the Revival Movie Theaters of New York City


The Elgin. The New Yorker. The Thalia. The Regency. Theatre 80 St. Marks. New York’s repertory movie houses specialized in presenting films often ignored by mainstream movie theaters. While a few repertory houses existed in other cities, New York offered the greatest number and variety. Operating on shoestring budgets in funky settings, each repertory house had its own personality, reflecting the preferences of a (often eccentric) proprietor.   Ben Davis, author of Repertory Movie Theaters of New York City: Havens for Revivals, Indies and the Avant-Garde, 1960 – 1994, will be in conversation with Steve Gould, a co-owner of the Elgin. Ben Davis is a writer in New York. His articles have appeared in Film & History, Film Quarterly and Cineaste.  Steve Gould and his business partner, Chuck Zlatkin, introduced innovative programs to the Elgin Theater, both as staff to the original owner, Ben Barenholtz, and, later, as its new owners.
