Lecture | The Queer Atlantic Triangle (online)


Professor Jill Richards of Yale University Yale University begins her talk with an archival obsession stoked by pandemic confinement: the documentary photographs of the 1920s Parisian lesbian nightclub Le Monocle. These photographs were used as a spur to rethink the scene of the queer nightclub as a transnational space in a migrant history of sexuality. Rather than approach the nightclub as a static location, the focus is on the migration of sex workers to situate Paris as one point in a larger Atlantic triangle. This triangulation offers a history of sexuality in movement, composed of the circulation of sex workers and sailors between Europe, the Caribbean, and North Africa.

Lecture | Economies of Breath (online)


During this talk, Fields Harrington will examine the social implications for a science of work and the biography of the spirometer. The spirometer’s measure of lung capacity is inextricable from the racializing surveillance of statistical law, by which entropy, energy and research into fatigue all have contributed to the creation of categories of difference and determined values of vitality.

Talk | Exploring Conflict Intelligence Through the Lens of a Poem (online)


Each week from Feb 4 to Mar. 11, a different poem will be explored by the Irish poet and conflict mediator Pádraig Ó Tuama. His project during this time is exploring dynamics of conflict and sustainability through the lens of poetry. Poetry is a communicative technology that has emerged from every culture on earth. For as long as there’s been literature, individuals have turned to poetry for the purpose of communicating what mere sentences cannot communicate. At poetry’s heart can be ambivalence, rage, lament, resistance, regression, the murky world of dreams, and anxiety. In this way, poetry is primed to provide interest into the human animal’s behavior during times of conflict.

Workshop | Psychedelic Painting Inspired by Peter Max


An art workshop inspired by the psychedelic painting of Peter Max. Max’s colorful, psychedelic designs with motifs drawn from Art Nouveau and Eastern painting traditions are hallmarks of the visual identity of the 1960s. Max created commissions and advertisements for a wide range of clients, from the Woodstock Music Festival (Summer of Love) to bedsheets to clocks for General Electric (GE), the latter of which act as inspiration for this event.

Lecture | Anti-Colonial Inscriptions: Reimagining the Face in Latinx Literature (online)


Richard Perez (John Jay College of Criminal Justice) examines various scenes from the work of Latinx writers whose focus on the face inscribes a proliferating canvas of races, genders, and sexualities. For Latinx authors, the face serves not as a fact of identity, but as a generative, anti-colonial trope reimagined as a shifting form whose malleability incorporates the heterogeneous features of the Americas. Thus, the face offers an interplay of difference, confounding the aberrant binaries of coloniality, while standing in for the (dis)abilities and (bio)diversities that constitute Latinx life. This expressive range allows Latinx authors—from Cecile Pineda to Piri Thomas to Edward Rivera, among others—to delineate a phenomenology of freedom and re-envision a more just, unassimilated, future.

Lecture | Poetica Ex Cathedra (online)


Literary historian Maya Kucherskaya presents her work on the creative assignments Joseph Brodsky gave to his students at Mount Holyoke College as a part of his poetry course. Drawing on archival documents from Yale University's Beinecke Library, Kucherskaya examines Brodsky's assignments and reading lists as the key, on the one hand, to his poetics, and on the other, to his views on poetry and its role in the academy and in society. Maya Kucherskaya is Professor of Literature and Head of the MFA Program in Creative Writing at National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow. She is a historian of Russian literature, a literary critic, and a writer of both fiction and nonfiction. Her most recent book, Nikolai Leskov. Missed Genius (2021), won the Big Book Award.

Talk | From Field to Future: A History of 455 Fifth Avenue (online)


Everyone at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library was thrilled when our renovated building reopened to the public. But although our building is now state of the art, the area where it stands has a storied history that began as a mere field on the island of Manhattan. This is an evening of historical discovery, where you'll learn the deep history of a small plot of land and how it reflects the history of the city itself.

Opening Reception | Abhishek Tuiwala: The Uncomfortable Comfort


A solo exhibition by NYC-based artist Abhishek Tuiwala. In his work, Abhishek portrays human life, which he perceives as continuous processing of culture, ethics, and identity. He observes, adds satire, and creates art out of these three core essences of humanity. Abhishek’s recent sculptures depict cultural disparities between two countries; India, where he is rooted, and the United States, the one that earns him bread. With its positive yet sophisticated aesthetic, Abhishek’s work brings excitement to the audience. Abhishek Tuiwala is a sculptor based in NYC. He received his B.F.A. in India from Surat and M.F.A in Sculpture from Pratt Institute. He has shown his work online and offline globally including in the U.S., India, and South Korea. He has strong skillsets in clay modeling and metal casting. Abhishek has received scholarships, grants, and 13 national and international awards. He was previously featured in 12 international magazines and presses.

Opening Reception | Quay Quinn Wolf: Repair


Quay Quinn Wolf’s exhibition features seven new sculptural works that explore rituals of self care, and the physical and psychological process of healing. Combining industrial, utilitarian objects with organic materials—such as flowers, essential oils, animal skins and crystals—Wolf’s minimalist configurations represent the body, as well as the technologies used to aid and alter the physical form. These unexpected sculptural pairings emphasize the fragility of the body in contrast to the machinery and objects it daily employs.

Talk | Franchised Superheroes and the Financialization of Filmmaking (online)


For decades, comic books were a source of speculation in Hollywood; film adaptation rights were bought, sold, and collateralized, but rarely ever greenlit for production. That changed in the early 2000s, when studios found new investment strategies that turned superheroes from risky bets into surefire blockbusters. This talk details this recent film and comic book industry history, and explains why great stories and characters will never be as important in Hollywood as great financial structures. As the film industry reorients around streaming platforms and conglomerates expand their holdings, the way media corporations decide to leverage debt, control stock prices, and speculate on intellectual property will play an ever-greater role in determining the shape of our cultural landscape. Speaker Shawna Kidman is an Assistant Professor of Communication at UC San Diego.

Discussion | Many Returns: Land from Indigenous Perspectives (online)


Many Returns--as its optative title implies--takes up questions around restitution and rematriation, or more specifically, land back and return from Indigenous perspectives, from Turtle Island to Palestine. Considering return as a reparative and corrective mode of relation to the land, the program speaks to severed connections under continued colonial and settler control, while revealing the multiple and layered forms of rematriation that resistance ushers. Sharing a range of strategies, from the poetic to the insurgent, the program balances the urgencies of the present--the right of return for refugees and displaced peoples--with ancestral time and the return of land management and environmental stewardship practices to Indigenous peoples. Palestinian artist Vivien Sansour shares the Palestinian Heirloom Seed Library project, which seeks to preserve and restore heritage and threatened seed varieties, Indigenous Palestinian farming practices, and the cultural stories and identities associated with them from colonial erasure and environmental change; Indigenous Yaqui and Jewish multidisciplinary artist Tehila speaks to her artistic practice as a Water Protector and Land Guardian; and Krystal Two Bulls (Oglala Lakota and Northern Cheyenne), speaks to her organizing and activism protecting the environmental rights and lands of Indigenous people.
