Author Reading | Society of Thieves: Property and Socialism Under Stalin (online)

The book is based on archives from the Soviet State, Communist Party, Procuracy and Supreme court in Moscow and Kiev. It engages the question of the construction of a new property regime under Stalin, and the principle of protection of socialist property, redefining the value of things and their usages.

Discussion | Latinx Artists in Spain: Decentering Race, Nation and Empire (online)


While immigrants from Latin America make up the largest immigrant group in Spain, and have lived in the peninsula for centuries, there is little knowledge and understanding of Latinx people in Spain- or of the rising field of global Latinx Studies. This panel will examine what we learn about race, nation and empire when we center the experiences of diverse Latinx groups living in Spain, and when we explore the shaping of diaspora identities beyond the US context. The panel will focus the experiences of four artists of Latin American backgrounds spanning different immigrant generations to hone in on the diverse memories, histories, and specific racial, ethnic backgrounds that are often erased and marginalized. Participants will share their activism to heal colonial wounds and the tensions between visibility and invisibility they maneuver through their anti-racist activism to center black, Indigenous, queer and anti-colonial positionalities in contemporary Spain.

Opening Reception | Rebecca Purdum: Selected Works 1986 to 2021


A selection of paintings by Rebecca Purdum. They span the years from 1986, when she first exhibited with the gallery, through recent paintings from 2021. Purdum is an abstract painter who, from her twenties, has had a clear vision of where her calling lies and has consistently pursued her own path. As an abstract painter, Purdum creates works that are both thoroughly contemporary and uniquely distinguishable from those by other artists. Purdum searches for meaning in the very act of painting. She paints directly on the canvas surface with gloved hands, giving her, as she once said, the equivalent of ten simultaneous brushes and allowing her to work from within the painting, to become part of the painting.

Talk | "What Makes it Italian?": The Music and Architecture of Italy (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group that meets online and is open to everyone. The group is led by Gina Crusco. She takes a look at stylistic parallels between the most ephemeral of the arts - music, which dissipates moment by moment - and the near-permanent - architecture, constructed to last many lifetimes. Italy is the birthplace of Renaissance architecture and the homeland of Palladianism, a style which influenced design all over the world. The history of Western architecture has been shaped by such edifices as the Duomo of Milan, the Mole Antonelliana in Turin, and the Villa Capra in Vicenza. Nowadays, Italy is in the forefront of modernist architecture, with two Pritzker Architecture Prizes having gone to Italians. Who were the composers who produced music in the regions and during the eras when these great buildings were erected? Does their music reflect then-current architecture trends? The likes of Alessandro Scarlatti, Giuseppe Verdi, and today's young Giovanni Allevi tell the story.

Book Club | All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews (online)


The group discusses Miriam Toews's "wrenchingly honest, darkly funny novel" that explores the question, what do you do for a loved one who truly wants to die? While on the surface Elfrieda's life is enviable (she's a world-renowned pianist, glamorous, wealthy, and happily married) and her sister Yolandi's is a mess (she's divorced and broke, with two teenagers growing up too quickly), they are fiercely close-raised in a Mennonite household and sharing the hardship of Elf's desire to end her life. After Elf's latest attempt, Yoli must quickly determine how to keep her family from falling apart. Join us for a discussion of a unique, deeply personal story that is as much comedy as it is tragedy.

Book Discussion | Latino USA: A Cartoon History (online)


A book talk with Ilan Stavans, author of Latino USA: A Cartoon History, in conversation with Tenement Museum staff member Elizabeth Venditto. Latino USA is a marvelous representation of Ilan Stavans’ lifelong ambition to capture the multi-dimensions and nuance of Latino culture in a comic style celebration of its history, with illustrations by Lalo Alcarez and a host of often contradictory narrators — (a toucan, Cantiflas and Captain America, to name just a few) and Stavans himself, remains the impartial storyteller. The result is a spinning together of history in its subjective, subversive and entirely human storyline.
