Conference | The Border Is Everywhere: The Crisis of the Immigration Enforcement Regime


The border is everywhere intentionally signals the encroachment of immigration control and boundary making across multiple spaces of civic life. The two-day conference will examine the unfolding human rights violations suffered by immigrants seeking asylum and those seeking the opportunity to build and maintain their lives in the United States. Since 2014, immigration enforcement agencies have steadily increased the use of draconian measures to exacerbate the politically charged 'border crisis' as people from Latin America, the Caribbean, and other countries seek to enter the United States. This conference aims to bridge the gaps between academia, policy and street level organizing through the linking up of scholars, students, policy makers and organizers. Experts invited will include lawyers, advocates, and scholars that are expert on the laws and human rights conventions that govern immigration in the United States. Confirmed speakers include Nina Glick Schiller, Laura Briggs, Naomi Pak, Joseph Heyman, NYC Councilmember Francisco Moya.

Staged Reading | !!!CANCELLED!!! The Tragedy of Julius Caesar By Shakespeare !!!CANCELLED!!!


The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is a history play and tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written and first performed in 1599. Set in Rome in 44 BC, the play depicts the moral dilemma of Brutus as he joins a conspiracy led by Cassius to murder Julius Caesar to prevent him from becoming dictator of Rome. Following Caesar's death, Rome is thrust into a period of civil war, and the republic the conspirators sought to preserve is lost forever. Although the play is named Julius Caesar, Brutus speaks more than four times as many lines as the title character; and the central psychological drama of the play focuses on Brutus' struggle between the conflicting demands of honour, patriotism, and friendship.

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


***THIS EVENT HAS BEENCANCELLED*** 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.

***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*** As part of the exhibition Blues at the Mishkin Gallery, this is a listening session with Berlin-based musician and artist Lamin Fofana and curator Moses Serubiri.

The exhibition centers on a trilogy of sound works comprising the albums Black Metamorphosis, Darkwater, and Blues that engage with seminal texts by Sylvia Wynter, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Amiri Baraka to reflect on historical and epistemological trajectories of contemporary social and political thought through the lens of Black Studies. These works will be presented alongside videos and photographs by Fofana and his collaborators Jim C. Nedd and Nicolas Premier.

Opening Reception | Lines from Arguments: Depthless Theatrical Spaces in Color Palettes


Depthless theatrical spaces in color palettes of decomposing fruits set the stage for alienation and co-dependency to unfold between Katja Farin’s easily relatable subjects. In bright but unsettling mise en scènes, catatonic characters rely on frozen gesture to disclose their nuanced interpersonal relationships. This muted desperation for communication reinforces proximity and socialization as basic needs for survival. The aphasic actors also interact with carefully selected props.

***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*** Benjamin Degen's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery, In Waves presents paintings and drawings that continue his exploration of landscape, movement, and observation. Degen's works employ extensive mark-making and fluid touches to describe a human presence. As the paint darts across the canvas or the ink is actively applied on paper, we move through the landscape while the landscape moves through us. Degen's act of looking becomes a way for us to see ourselves, within a moment, connected to this world.

Opening Reception | CANCELLED***Left is Right, Down is Up: 2 20th-Century Works***CANCELLED


***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*** Revisit two works from the second half of the twentieth century. The first one is by Joseph Beuys-the self-proclaimed shaman of the art world-his mantra-like performance Ja ja ja ja ja, nee nee nee nee nee (Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, nah nah nah nah nah) from December 22, 1968. The audio piece consists of three performers-the artist and two colleagues-repeating the words Yeah and Nay ad absurdum until the audience accedes to catharsis. The hour-long performance was recorded more than 50 years ago at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf. The second work is Serkan Ozkaya's notorious Proletarier Aller Lander (Workers of the World) 1999, in which thousands of minuscule, red plastic foam figures are affixed to the floor, a sprawling army of little protesters, to be stepped on by gallery-goers. "Depending upon your point of view, Ozkaya's installation either cited the trampling of the working classes or their resilience and ultimate power, always springing back, indestructible." (Lilly Wei, Art in America).

Performance | Already Dead. Feedback Loops of Despair: Performance Art


Polish performer and intermedia artist Kuba Falk describes the ideas behind his performance: "This performance is a mourning for loss. An action to embody something as abstract as issue of climate change. It is a lamentation. To acknowledge feelings of grief and despair. They need to be experienced in order to move on, to transform, heal, change - within spiritual frame." Falk studied in Krakow at the Intermedia Department of the Academy of Fine Arts; Stage Directing and Stage Acting at the Academy of Theatre Arts and Comparative Religion Studies at the Jagiellonian University. He creates body-based works built out of personal rituals and spiritual practice with strong presence of themes of healing through facing shadows and inconvenient truths of self delusion. His poetry, video and sound works are often incorporated into his performances creating complex actions.
