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.

Talk | Searching for Survivors: The Fate of the St. Louis Passengers


Eighty years ago, in early June of 1939, the St. Louis, a passenger ship carrying 937 people – almost all of them Jews fleeing Nazi Germany – was denied entry into both Cuba and the United States. With no refuge in sight, the St. Louis was forced to sail back to Europe. The fates of its passengers, however, remained an unsolved mystery for over sixty years. Scott Miller, former Director of Curatorial Affairs at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will discuss his decades-long search to uncover the fate of every passenger from this tragic journey and American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee’s historic role in striving to rescue them. Miller was a founding staff member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where he worked for 30 years and now serves as a consultant on special acquisitions for the Holocaust Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation. He is the co-author with Sarah Ogilvie of Refuge Denied: The St. Louis Passengers and the Holocaust, the story of their search for the St. Louis passengers.

Lecture | Painting Alterity: History, Culture and Stereotype


Through a sustained comparison of Pablo Picasso's "Demoiselles D’Avignon" (1907) and Robert Colescott's two versions of the "Demoiselles D’Alabama" (1985), which reprise Picasso's composition, this lecture proposes a redefinition of modern painting. Art historian David Joselit will argue that modernism in painting lies not in flatness or abstraction but in the registration of a triple alterity on the canvas surface: within history, culture and stereotype. David Joselit is a Distinguished Professor in the Art History PhD Program at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Author Reading | Mario Puzo: An American Writer's Quest


In the life of Mario Puzo, all roads led to The Godfather. No other writer of his generation (Puzo was born in 1920) created such an internationally embraced, mythic, beloved novel—not even such renowned peers as Norman Mailer, Truman Capote, James Jones, Gore Vidal, William Styron, or James Baldwin (all of whom were born between 1921 and 1925). Badly indebted, supporting a wife and five children, pushing fifty, and burdened by stress, Puzo vowed to write a bestseller. His third novel, The Godfather, was published in 1969. Long before the film adaptation premiered in 1972, The Godfather had sold millions of copies. With author M.J. Moore.

Reading | Defending Democracy: A Meditation on Basic Democratic Values


Our Western system of an open, democracy-based society and the values holding up such a system are threatened from many sides. Therefore it seems more important than ever to remind ourselves of the great achievement democracy is, and that it is worth fighting for. This literary collage presents texts of authors and thinkers who, in their time, fought against undermining tendencies of dissolution and the erosion of the republic by totalitarian forces. The cry for simple solutions, the longing for a strong man who liberates us from the complex trap of a globalized world, is growing louder. Narrator Gregorij von Leïtis will read various texts. Gregorij von Leïtis is winner of the New York Theatre Club Prize, Founding Artistic Director of Elysium and President of The Lahr von Leitis Academy & Archive. Michael Lahr, Program Director of Elysium, will give a short introduction.

Screening | Documentary: Zora Neale Hurston: Jump at the Sun: Film Biography Followed BY Q&A


One of the first black women to enter the literary canon (Their Eyes Were Watching God), Zora Neale Hurston established the African American vernacular as one of the most vital, inventive voices in American literature. This definitive film biography, eighteen years in the making, portrays the writer in all her complexity: gifted, flamboyant, controversial and fiercely original. It includes insights from leading scholars, rare footage of the rural South (some of it shot by Neale Hurston), and biographer Cheryl Wall tracing back the writer’s childhood in Eatonville, FL, the first all-black, incorporated town in the US. Documentary by Sam Pollard. 85 mins. This film will be presented by writer/producer Kristy Andersen followed by a Q&A and short reading with award-winning actress Kim Brockington.
