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 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Gallery Talk | American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection: Exhibition Tour


Everyone has a story to tell--a life lived, witness to and participant in events both private and shared. Such moments are captured by American folk and self-taught artists in powerful visual narratives that offer firsthand testimony to chapters in the unfolding story of America from its inception to the present. American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection showcases more than seventy stellar works of folk and self-taught art from the museum's premier collection. Beautiful, diverse, and truthful, the art illuminates the thoughts and experiences of individuals with an immediacy that is palpable and unique to these expressions. The artworks are organized into four sections--Founders, Travelers, Philosophers, and Seekers--that respond to such themes as nationhood, freedom, community, imagination, opportunity, and legacy. Evocative visual juxtapositions and accessible contextual information further reveal the vital role that folk art plays as a witness to history, carrier of cultural heritage, and a reflection of the world at large through the eyes, heart, and mind of the artist.

Bud Roach, tenor and theorbo. Maurizio Cazzati (1637-1678) did two things very well: he wrote beautiful music and had a knack for making enemies. This programme of music for tenor and theorbo includes music and readings from Cazzati and his contemporaries in Bologna and beyond.  Canadian tenor and theorbist Bud Roach has been recognized internationally for his achievements in historical performance and the self-accompanied practice.

Author Reading | The Orthodox Church in Ukraine: A Century of Separation


The bitter separation of Ukraine's Orthodox churches is a microcosm of its societal strife. From 1917 onward, church leaders failed to agree on the church's mission in the twentieth century. The core issues of dispute were establishing independence from the Russian church and adopting Ukrainian as the language of worship. Decades of polemical exchanges and public statements by leaders of the separated churches contributed to the formation of their distinct identities and sharpened the friction amongst their respective supporters. Author Nicholas Denysenko provides a balanced and comprehensive analysis of this history from the early twentieth century to the present.

Lecture | The Role of Genoa and Izmir in the Early Modern Global Economy


This talk analyzes the interrelation of two sectors, international trade and state finance in the creation of a global economy in the early modern era and the role of the Mediterranean in it. It will do so through the case studies of two globalizing cities, Genoa and Izmir, of different scale and magnitude during two different time periods, --1500s and 1700s respectively-- on the basis that what is global need not be identical. Speaker Elena Frangakis-Syrett holds a dual appointment as Professor of History at Queens College and at the Graduate Center of The City University of New York.

Conference | Jewish Survival and Rescue in Occupied France


In Nazi-occupied France, nearly 75% of French Jews were able to survive the Holocaust despite the complicity of the Vichy government with the German authorities. This can be explained by the implementation of rescue networks by the Jews themselves, with the help of the population in certain “refuge” regions. This two-day conference is part of “France and Judaism: 2,000 Years of Intertwined History,” a series organized by the Consulate General of France in New York.

Opening Reception | 2 Women of Style: Louise Dahl-Wolfe and Stephanie Pfriender Stylander


Louise Dahl-Wolfe’s photographs embody the classic elegance that was the hallmark of fashion photography since its earliest days, beginning with Edward Steichen in 1911. She was hired by Harper’s Bazaar editor Carmel Snow in 1936 when a formal elegance was the norm. Dahl-Wolfe embodied a fresh, decidedly American spirit in her collaborations at the magazine with Mrs. Snow, Alexey Brodovitch, and Diana Vreeland until 1958. The photographs of Stephanie Pfriender Stylander reflect cultural changes represented in fashion photography after Dahl-Wolfe’s period. Models became younger and fashion’s depiction of a new sexual liberation was often at odds with the elegance and poise of the prior decades. Kate Moss was only 17 and completely unknown when she posed on the streets of New York in 1991 for Pfriender Stylander, who likened her to Anna Karina in the films of Jean-Luc Godard.

Opening Reception | Dream Date: Highly Constructed Photographs


Joseph Desler Costa's first solo show at the gallery is as much about dreams as it is about dates. Costa's highly constructed photographs picture his anxieties and desires as he reconciles a longing for symbols from his youth with the more pervasive images that now occupy his field of view. The resulting works—part autobiographical, part fiction—are a materialization of memories and fantasies warped not only by the passage of time but also by a steady consumption of media imagery.

Discussion | How Biased Are We? A Conversation about Perception, Cognition, and Accuracy


Perceptions are the window to our world. Rather than merely producing a snapshot, our brains actively create our experiences when we perceive objects or persons. Given that background knowledge and biases shape the ways in which we understand the world, can we ever trust our perceptual experiences? To what extent can we rely on science to correct our view of the world since sciences are also influenced by the biases of individual researchers? A panel of psychologists and philosophers will present recent research in a conversation about our capacity to adequately understand the world around us.

Discussion | It's Not $30.00 Pesos, It's 30 Years: Protest Graphics and Graffiti in Chile


An analysis of protest graphics and graffiti in Santiago, Chile, as a way to understand the country's current crisis. On Oct. 18th, 2019, a radical social upheaval took Chileans and foreign observers by surprise. A minor subway fare hike of 30 pesos triggered a social revolution, one marked by massive protests, organized strikes, and widespread violence and vandalism. The months-long wave of unrest shook Latin America’s “most stable” democracy to its core. In this talk, Prof Terri Gordon, Associate Professor, and Eric Zolov, Associate Professor at Stony Brook University, will discuss and show the protest graphics and graffiti covering the walls of Santiago in Chile, as a way to understand the roots, social configurations and demands of Chile's contemporary crisis. Their analysis traces the neoliberalism born in the Pinochet era and the struggles over memory and memorial sites that continue to this day. The event will be in English.

Talk | Testifying While Black: African American English and Judicial Linguistics


In this study, Taylor Jones and Jessica Kalbfeld demonstrate that Philadelphia court reporters consistently fail to meet 95% transcription accuracy when asked to transcribe mundane examples of spoken African American English. The grammatic structures and sound rules in AAE, and the difference between white and black accents in Philadelphia related to residential segregation, all conspire to produce transcriptions that are not only inaccurate, but that change the official record of who performed what actions, under which circumstances, potentially with dramatic legal repercussions for everyday speakers of AAE.

Author Reading | The Financial Ecosystem: The Role of Finance in Achieving Sustainability


Financial markets are the primary directors of economic activity in a capitalist global society, but they also have an important societal role in encouraging investments that are beneficial to natural and human ecosystems. Behavior can be greatly influenced by the availability and price of capital finance, and sustainability factors—environmental, social, and governance—must be reflected in the world as understood by finance professionals in order to be real and not merely symbolic.

Discussion | "I Am Reborn at Every Moment": Contemporary Reflections on Artist Feliciano Centurión and AIDS


This panel considers contemporary responses to the international AIDS crisis in relation to the work of Feliciano Centurión (1962–1996). Working in Buenos Aires in the 1980s and 1990s, Centurión’s painting and embroidery renders poetic renderings of love in the city, his youth in the tropics, and his spiritual reflections before his untimely death due to AIDS-related illness. The program will highlight themes of sexuality and illness in Centurión’s work, as well as his resonance with contemporary artists across differences in geography and sociopolitical context. Speakers include curator Bill Arning and artists Elektra KB and Carlos Motta. Moderated by Gonzalo Casals (Executive Director, Leslie-Lohman Museum).

She wants to find love, but it eludes her. She wants to be fulfilled, but her job is a dead end. She wants to belong, but her life is becoming increasingly isolated. You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters. They have an unbreakable circle of friends. They live a life of glamour and perfection. They always get what they desire. Shay thinks she wants their life. But what they really want is hers.

Talk | New York Stories: Celebrated Restaurateur Danny Meyer


Danny Meyer, whose past and present portfolio includes classic New York City eateries such as Union Square Café, Eleven Madison Park, and Gramercy Tavern as well as the Shake Shack empire, shares his own 9/11 experience as a midtown resident and business owner. As chair of the Restaurant Committee for NYC & Company in 2001, Meyer spearheaded an industry-wide initiative to breathe life back into New York City’s restaurant culture; a dual mission to serve a devastated city and keep the industry afloat. Meyer reflects upon the impact of the attacks on New York City and the restorative role of restaurants as sites of community and connection.
