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.

The turn of the 17th century saw the dawn of the stylus fantasticus, an improvisatory and virtuosic style of composition that was especially suited to treble instruments like the violin. Many composers were fascinated with the musical colors and textures made possible by three violins playing together. This concert will feature a variety of works for this inventive combination chosen from works by composers like Dario Castello, Battista Fontana, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, and others.

Author Reading | Democracy in Exile: Hans Speier and the Rise of the Defense Intellectual


Author Daniel Bessner is the Anne H.H. and Kenneth B. Pyle Assistant Professor in American Foreign Policy in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington. He has published pieces in The New York Times, The Guardian, and other popular and scholarly venues. "Anyone interested in the history of U.S. foreign relations, Cold War history, and twentieth century intellectual history will find this impressive biography of Hans Speier, one of the most influential figures in American defense circles of the twentieth century, a must-read. In Democracy in Exile, Daniel Bessner shows how the experience of the Weimar Republic’s collapse and the rise of Nazism informed Hans Speier’s work as an American policymaker and institution builder. Bessner delves into Speier’s intellectual development, illuminating the ideological origins of the expert-centered approach to foreign policymaking and revealing the European roots of Cold War liberalism. Democracy in Exile places Speier at the center of the influential and fascinating transatlantic network of policymakers, many of them German émigrés, who struggled with the tension between elite expertise and democratic politics. Speier was one of the most prominent intellectuals among this cohort, and Bessner traces his career, in which he advanced from university intellectual to state expert, holding a key position at the RAND Corporation and serving as a powerful consultant to the State Department and Ford Foundation, across the mid-twentieth century. Bessner depicts the critical role Speier played in the shift in American intellectual history in which hundreds of social scientists left their universities and contributed to the creation of an expert-based approach to U.S. foreign relations, in the process establishing close connections between governmental and nongovernmental organizations. As Bessner writes: to understand the rise of the defense intellectual, we must understand Hans Speier." http://www.cornellpress.cornell.edu/book/?gcoi=80140104396220

Lecture | Muslims in Transition: Religion and Politics in Western Europe


This talk will critically trace the emergence of ‘’Islam’’ and ‘Muslim” as politicized and securitized categories in Western Europe. It will then turn to an in-depth case study on Shia Muslim community formation in the United Kingdom. In doing so, it aims to show how the political climate in Europe and the Middle East region has not only complicated the role of Islam in western secular societies, but has complicated and transformed communal boundaries and networks within and between Muslim communities in Western Europe. Speaker Kathryn Spellman Poots is a Visiting Associate Professor at Columbia University and Academic Program Director for the MA in Islamic Studies.

Author Reading | The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition


Author Linda Gordon discusses her book, The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition. Extraordinary national acclaim accompanied the publication of award-winning historian Linda Gordon’s disturbing and markedly timely history of the reassembled Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s. Dramatically challenging our preconceptions of the hooded Klansmen responsible for establishing a Jim Crow racial hierarchy in the 1870s South, this “second Klan” spread in states principally above the Mason-Dixon line by courting xenophobic fears surrounding the flood of immigrant “hordes” landing on American shores. An urgent examination into the revived Klan of the 1920s becomes “required reading” for our time (New York Times Book Review).

Author Reading | A World Without "Whom": The Future Of "Correct" Writing


Emmy Favilla makes a case for breaking the rules laid out by Strunk and White: A world without "whom," she argues, is a world with more room for writing that's clear, timely, pleasurable, and politically aware. As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of "correct" writing? When Favilla was tasked with creating a style guide for BuzzFeed, she opted for spelling, grammar, and punctuation guidelines that would reflect not only the site's lighthearted tone, but also how readers actually use language IRL. Special Guest: Benjamin Dreyer, author of Dreyer's English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style

Opening Reception | Cut Work: A Survey 2008–2018


Cut work is a freehand paper-cutting process that charts the contours of our ever-changing emotional landscape through the movement of form, line, color—and especially in cut work—light and shadow. Evolved over the course of 10 years, cut work travels through Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s diverse vocabulary of mediums—from paper and metal to leather and 12-gauge gunshot blasts—to understand the play between visceral responses and meditative rest.

Opening Reception | Erik Madigan Heck: A Master of Color and Pattern


Erik Madigan Heck is a master of color and pattern. He is an artist who uses fashion photography as a vehicle for his art and as a point of departure, elevating fashion photography to fine art. He photographs with a painter’s eye and his vision produces work of rare beauty. With a palette of highly saturated color, he creates flattened figures often combining and overlaying patterns to produce vivid, almost Japanese imagery. The work is always lit by natural light. Frequently the model’s back is to the camera or her face is not visible, drawing attention to the composition, patterns, color and textures. Erik Madigan Heck was born in Excelsior, Minnesota in 1983. His work appears in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, and Harper’s Bazaar, among other publications. He has been the recipient of many awards including the ICP Infinity Award. He lives and works in Connecticut and New York City.

Opening Reception | Sheer Presence: Monumental Paintings: Works by Robert Motherwell


This unprecedented exhibition will be the first to focus solely on Motherwell’s approach to large-format painting, comprised of works spanning the 1960s-1980s including a core group of paintings from the collection of The Dedalus Foundation. As one of the most ambitious mark-makers of the Abstract Expressionist era, the monumental canvas was an especially fitting format for Robert Motherwell, and Kasmin’s new 3,000 square foot, column-free gallery with nearly twenty-foot ceilings in the epicenter of Chelsea is the ideal architectural context to experience these rarely seen masterworks.

Author Reading | Soldiers of the Nation: Military Service and Modern Puerto Rico


As the island of Puerto Rico transitioned from Spanish to U.S. imperial rule, the military and political mobilization of popular sectors of its society played important roles in the evolution of its national identities and subsequent political choices. While scholars of American imperialism have examined the political, economic, and cultural aspects of U.S. colonialism in Puerto Rico, few have considered the integral role of Puerto Rican men in colonial military service and in helping to consolidate the empire. Author Harry Franqui-Rivera argues that the emergence of strong and complicated Puerto Rican national identities is deeply rooted in the long history of colonial military organizations on the island. Franqui-Rivera examines the patterns of inclusion-exclusion within the military and the various forms of citizenship that are subsequently transformed into socioeconomic and political enfranchisement.

Opening Reception | Graphic Designers From Italy In America


Italian Types features works by Fortunato Depero, Paolo Garretto, Costantino Nivola, Leo Lionni, George Giusti, Albe Steiner, Erberto Carboni, Aldo Giurgola, Roberto Mango, Giovanni Pintori, Bruno Munari, Franco Grignani, Heinz Waibl, Giulio Cittato, Bob Noorda, and Massimo Vignelli. The Italian influences on American culture are far-reaching and well-documented. Yet, with a few exceptions of some key figures chronicled in Italian and American graphic design histories, the work by Italian graphic designers published in America is less well known. From Fortunato Depero’s move to New York City in 1928 to Unimark International’s work of the 1960s and 1970s, Italian graphic designers were living and publishing important work in the U.S. The sixteen designers featured (Italian-born and a few “adopted” Italians) contributed commercial graphic design in America during the pre and post World War II eras from approximately 1928 until 1980. With over seventy original works, the exhibition aims to bring more attention to this prolific network of collaborators who, with their unique achievements, played a significant role in coalescing modern graphic design in America. ]

Theater | Jerome Robbins' Poppa Piece


An archival dive into Jerome Robbins’ never produced autobiographical theater masterwork, Poppa Piece. There will be a collage of rarely heard private audio recordings, rehearsal footage, musical numbers, plus recitations of Robbins’ private journals and diaries. About Poppa Piece In the early 1990s, as Jerome Robbins confronted the twilight of his storied career, he endeavored to create one last theater work that would reconcile the questions and mysteries of his life. Hidden away at his Bridgehampton beach home and cloistered behind the closed doors of private rehearsal studios, Robbins tirelessly attempted construct an honest self-portrait, detailing his own Jewish immigrant heritage, family history, and personal failures. Jerome Robbins was an American choreographer, director, dancer, and theater producer who worked in classical ballet, on Broadway, and in films and television. Among his numerous stage productions he worked on were On the Town, Peter Pan, High Button Shoes, The King and I, The Pajama Game, Bells Are Ringing, West Side Story, Gypsy, and Fiddler on the Roof; Robbins was a five-time Tony Award-winner and a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors.

Talk | An Ever Fresh Pleasure: Equestrian Life along the Bloomingdale Road


Before there was Central Park, with its miles of bridle paths and drives, avid equestrians and devotees of fast harness horses or slower moving carriages could travel the network of roads and farm lanes that meandered the length and breadth of Manhattan. Day-tripping on the Bloomingdale Road – with its grand vistas, hidden coves, inns, and taverns – was among the most popular pastimes for Manhattan’s riders and drivers. The opening of Central Park only added to the attraction of riding and driving the old roads, and as the city grew, the west side, in particular, became home to some of the most influential riding schools and clubs in the United States. Speaker Judith Martin Woodall was the office manager of the Claremont Riding Academy for twenty-seven years. She received the John H. Daniels Fellowship at the National Sporting Library and Museum in Middleburg, Virginia for her project, Witching the World with Noble Horsemanship: Riding in New York City, 1770-2007.

Cavafy’s legacy as a documentarian and ‘poet-historian.’ Like Cavafy, she speaks in the voices of individuals in the hands of their historical moment, subject to their leaders’ often unwise and destructive agendas. We hear their full-throated voices singing vulnerability and courage, love and grieving. House of the Night Watch is a book we urgently need, one that gives us hope that one day we will wake up to peace.

Concert | MAGA: The People’s Perspective


Over the last several years, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter J. Hoard’s voice, lyrical genius, and fashion have become staples in the urban and traditional music scenes. His original compositions and arrangements easily shift in genre to communicate his boundless imagination. The versatile artist has collaborated with countless musicians—including Kimbra, Pharoahe Monch, Macklemore, Lorde, and Chance The Rapper (with whom he won a Grammy for his contribution on “No Problem”). A regular at Arlene’s Grocery and currently the artist-in-residence at National Sawdust, he’s since broken out with a solo act, lending his vibrant melodies and engaging personality to a set of protest and freedom songs that celebrates the shared struggles of U.S. minorities. With his unique blend of Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, and Beyoncé, J. Hoard is taking hip-hop and R&B power anthems to a new level.
