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.

Book Club | The Fixer: Pulitzer Prize Winning Fiction


Monthly book discussions to explore titles you've been meaning to read, or reread, and discuss with other lovers of literature.  Participants should read each title before the discussion. This month's title is The Fixer by Bernard Malamud. The Fixer (1966) is Bernard Malamud's best-known and most acclaimed novel, one that makes manifest his roots in Russian fiction, especially that of Isaac Babel. Set in Kiev in 1911 during a period of heightened anti-Semitism, the novel tells the story of Yakov Bok, a Jewish handyman blamed for the brutal murder of a young Russian boy. Bok leaves his village to try his luck in Kiev, and after denying his Jewish identity, finds himself working for a member of the anti-Semitic Black Hundreds Society. When the boy is found nearly drained of blood in a cave, the Black Hundreds accuse the Jews of ritual murder. Arrested and imprisoned, Bok refuses to confess to a crime that he did not commit. The Fixer is the winner of the 1967 National Book Award for Fiction and the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Opening Reception | Constance DeJong: One of the Progenitors of Media Art


A survey exhibition marking the artist's first solo show at an institutional gallery. For over four decades, DeJong—“a person of language"—has made daring, original experimental prose writing, multi-media spoken text works, and user-navigated digital projects. Well known for her contributions to New York's downtown performance art and avant-garde music scene in the 1970s and '80s, DeJong is considered one of the progenitors of media art, or "time-based media." This exhibition highlights DeJong's hybrid mode of art making, featuring work from the past three decades and debuting several new works by the artist.

Concert | Ethiopian-American Singer and Composer Rocks the Stage


Known for her electric stage presence and her galvanizing concerts, Meklit has rocked stages from Addis Ababa (where she is a household name) to San Francisco (her beloved base), as well as NYC, London, Montreal, Nairobi, Rome, and Cairo. The Ethiopian-American singer and composer returns with her new body of music, Antidote. Written as an ode to all that keeps us going in troubled times, the songs center connection, collective unity, music, creativity and the digging it takes to hold on to those life rafts that lift us. With Ethiopian jazz as a sonic palette, Antidote is grounded in Meklit's work as a composer of migration music. Tonight, in this Lincoln Center commission, Meklit previews these songs for the community that called them forth.
