Slide Lecture | !!!CANCELLED!!! From Afar: Photographing Distant Cultures, Abandoned Sites and Icebergs !!!CANCELLED!!!


When you travel, creating successful photographs of distant cultures takes personal vision, technique & planning. Whether your destination is Mexico or Mongolia, your photographs should express a sense of place, capture the essence of the people & tell a story. Anyone can take a typical tourist shot but learning to feel comfortable in exotic locations, and getting close to people will give you a better photo, if you know how. Arlene Collins will show and discuss her own photographs from around the world featuring projects such as Greenland's melting icebergs, Chernobyl and the abandoned city of Pripyat, concentration camps, portraits of Kushti wrestlers and brick kiln workers in Pakistan, and from Ethiopia a Bull Jumping Ceremony.

Classical Music | !!!CANCELLED!!! Bach at Noon !!!CANCELLED!!!


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


***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*** 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.

Discussion | !!!CANCELLED!!! Women Playwrights From The Caffe Cino !!!CANCELLED!!!


Caffe Cino, at 31 Cornelia Street, was not originally conceived as a theatrical venue but Joe Cino's West Village Caffe between 1958 and 1968 quickly became a venue for early works from John Guare, Lanford Wilson and Sam Shephard among many others. Experimental work that functioned outside of Broadway's commercial interests and legal restrictions was presented there and came to be known as Off Off Broadway. The Caffe offered very early roles for Bernadette Peters and Al Pacino. Caffe Cino actress Magie Dominic will share documentation and stories about the landmark space and present the first program devoted to the woman playwrights who produced their work at the Caffe. In 2018 the Caffe Cino was listed on The National Register of Historic Places and in 2019 The Landmarks Preservation Commission of New York granted The Caffe Cino Landmark Status.

Opening Reception | !!!CANCELLED!!! Unapproved Roads: The Divide Between Northern Ireland and the Republic !!!CANCELLED!!!


A remarkably candid exhibition of eight 24" x 20" hand-printed photographs that captures the geographical divide between Northern Ireland and the Republic. Stephen McGinn, son of a retired customs officer who patrolled the unapproved roads, returned to Northern Ireland in 2019 to document the Armagh borderland of his childhood. He did so without agenda of persuasion or nostalgia, but simply as he found it: empty and dormant, enduringly ordinary in spite of its extraordinary history and precarious position in the fractured Brexit landscape. Stephen McGinn was born and raised in Ireland and moved to London at age 19 to pursue a career in photography. Now based in Brooklyn, McGinn works primarily in still life and beauty.

Author Reading | CANCELLED***The Shifting Border: An Adjustable Legal Construct***CANCELLED


***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED*** We tend to think of a border as a static line, but recent bordering techniques have broken away from the map, as governments have developed legal tools to limit the rights of migrants before and after they enter a country's territory. The consequent detachment of state power from any fixed geographical marker has created a new paradigm: the shifting border, an adjustable legal construct untethered in space.

Dana-Ain Davis's new book is a prescient investigation into the high rates of premature birth among black women.

Artist Harry Dodge finds himself contemplating such questions as his father declines from dementia and he rekindles a bewildering but powerful relationship with his birth mother. A meteorite Dodge orders on eBay becomes a mysterious catalyst for a reckoning with the vital forces of matter, the nature of consciousness, and the bafflements of belonging.

Lecture | CANCELLED***The Refugee-Diplomat: Venice, England and the Reformation***CANCELLED


***THIS EVENT HAD BEEN CANCELLED*** The establishment of permanent embassies in fifteenth-century Italy has traditionally been regarded as the moment of transition between medieval and modern diplomacy. This talk proposes an alternative history of early modern diplomacy, centered not on states and their official representatives but around the figure of "the refugee-diplomat." Through a trove of diplomatic and mercantile letters, inquisitorial records, literary texts, and marginalia, the talk recovers the agency of religious refugees in international affairs, revealing their impact on the emergence of early modern diplomatic culture and practice. Speaker Diego Pirillo is Associate Professor of Italian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Author Reading | !!!CANCELLED!!! Constellations: Reflections from Life !!!CANCELLED!!!


How do you tell the story of a life in a body, as it goes through sickness, health, motherhood? How do you tell that story when you are not just a woman but a woman in Ireland? In these powerful essays, Sinead Gleeson does those very things. Throughout this wide-ranging collection she also turns her restless eye outwards delving into work, art and our very ways of seeing, taking us on a journey that is both uniquely personal and yet universal in its resonance. Reading and conversation, with reception to follow.
