Discussion | Matter(s) for Conversation and Action: Capitalocene, Aerocene (online)


The artworks in Tomás Saraceno: Particular Matter(s) propose a future alternative to the Capitalocene, the period of Earth’s history defined by the harmful effects of capitalist production on the environment, human communities, and other species. Saraceno and his collaborators call this possible new era the Aerocene, focused on the air as a way to imagine a world free of fossil fuels and borders. In this panel, participants will discuss the role of capitalism and production in the climate crisis. How did we get to this point? What are the responsibilities of governments, corporations, and individuals in remedying the crisis? What potential for change does an Aerocene era make possible?

Book Discussion | What Is Now Known Was Once Only Imagined: A Sculptor's Autobiography (online)


Known best for her exuberant, often large-scale sculptural works that celebrate the abundance and complexity of female desire, imagination and creativity, Niki de Saint Phalle viewed making art as a ritual, a performance―a process connecting life to art. This unconventional, illuminated biography, told in the first person in Saint Phalle's voice and her own hand, dilates large and small moments in Saint Phalle's life which she sometimes reveals with great candor, at other times carefully unwinding her secrets.

Author Reading | Quake: Award-Winning Novel


Nominated for the Icelandic Literary Prize, Quake is a haunting novel-in-translation about Saga, a woman who comes to after an epileptic seizure on a sidewalk along busy Miklabraut Street. Her three-year-old son is gone. The last thing she remembers is a double-decker bus that no one else can confirm seeing. Over the following days, Saga's mind is beset by memories and doubts. What happened before her seizure? Who can she trust? And how can she make any sense of her emotions when her memory is so fragmented? Hailed as Audur Jonsdottir's best-written novel so far, Quake is a shocking and revelatory exploration of the blurred lines between fact and fiction, reality and imagination, and where mother ends and child begins.
