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.

Lecture | !!!CANCELLED!!! Wealth Inequality in Germany, 1895-2017 !!!CANCELLED!!!


This talk provides the first long-run wealth inequality series for Germany from 1895 to 2017, from the period of industrialization until the present day. We introduce a new method to harmonize and combine the universe of wealth data to measure wealth inequality across the entire population, ranging from wealth tax data, household balance sheets to different survey data. Results indicate that wealth concentration in Germany was high in the industrialization period, when the top 1% captured more than half of total net wealth. Speaker Charlotte Bartels is a Research Associate at the German Institute for Economic Research.

Opening Reception | !!!CANCELLED!!! Sacred Nation, Scared Nation: Subverting Colonization !!!CANCELLED!!!


The first solo exhibition in the United States for noted Brisbane-based Waanyi Aboriginal artist Gordon Hookey (b. 1961, Cloncurry, Australia). Hookey uses metaphors, wordplay, and humor - sometimes brazenly provocative - to subvert tropes of English colonialization and to reclaim, empower, and redefine Aboriginal culture. Eschewing the traditional dot abstraction most commonly associated with indigenous Australian art, Hookey deploys deceptively folksy figuration and bold painted words in paintings that connect Black Aboriginal experience to that of African Americans.

Opening Reception | !!!CANCELLED!!! La Caravana: Photographs of Migrants !!!CANCELLED!!!


In October 2018, Ada Trillo flew to Ciudad Hidalgo on the border of Guatemala, where the caravan of migrants was entering Mexico. Over the course of the following weeks, she traveled 2,600 miles to the U.S. border in Tijuana with 7,000 refugees, including 2,700 children, fleeing poverty and gang violence in Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Through photography, video and interviews, she presents La Caravana not just as a political issue but primarily a humanitarian crisis. Trillo positions her images as a mirror to fake words, making visible the narratives that are missing from public consciousness. Many in her photographs are young women disguising themselves as men to avoid rape, many are persons with disabilities, many - LGBT people. This is her first solo exhibition in New York.
