Lecture | Critical Issues in Global Health in Conflict Settings


This seminar examines contemporary issues and challenges in global health, with a particular focus on conflict and violence-affected areas. We will explore the causes and determinants of these challenges as they are shaped by social, cultural, economic, and political factors. Participants will apply a critical lens to the intersection of violence and its aftermath as it affects population health, as well as the various roles of local and international actors. On a larger scale, this seminar explores how the framing and arrangements of neocolonialism in humanitarian action, the liberal approach to peace in the aftermath of conflicts, structural violence, and necropolitical governmentality work to shape public health outcomes in the most vulnerable communities in the world. First of 10 sessions.

Discussion | A Conversation with Violinist Jessie Montgomery (online)


The New York Times’ full page 2021 profile on Jessie Montgomery has a striking headline: The Changing American Canon Sounds like Jessie Montgomery, and reports that “…a new portrait of American sound has emerged, with Montgomery’s music providing some of the latest, crucial touches…She’s pretty much changing the canon for American orchestras.” Suddenly, Jessie Montgomery’s music is everywhere. She is the recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award from the ASCAP Foundation, the Sphinx Medal of Excellence, and Musical America’s Composer of the Year. Her music interweaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, poetry, and social consciousness, making her an acute interpreter of 21st-century American sound and experience. Her works have been described as “turbulent, wildly colorful and exploding with life” (The Washington Post). Bring your questions for the Q&A.

Lecture | Bodily Self and Interpersonal Relations in Schizophrenia


Neurologist Vittorio Gallese will discuss the ways that neuroscience can correlate the first-person experience of psychosis with its neurobiological and bodily roots. In spite of the historically consolidated psychopathological perspective, neuroscientific research applied to schizophrenia has so far almost entirely neglected the first-person experiential dimension of this syndrome, mainly focusing on higher- order cognitive functions, such as executive function, working memory, theory of mind, and the like. An alternative view posits that schizophrenia is a self-disorder characterized by anomalous self-experience and awareness. This view may not only shed new light on the psychopathological features of psychosis but also inspire empirical research targeting the bodily and neurobiological changes underpinning this disorder. Recent empirical evidence on the neurobiological basis of a minimal notion of the self, the bodily self, will be presented. The relationship between the body, its motor potentialities and the notion of minimal self will be illustrated. Putative neural mechanisms underpinning an incoherent bodily self and the blurring of self-other distinction in schizophrenic patients will be presented. Cognitive neuroscience can today address classic topics of psychopathology by adding a new level of description, finally enabling the correlation between the first-person experiential aspects of psychiatric diseases and their neurobiological roots. Gallese posits that brain function anomalies of multisensory integration, differential processing of self- and other-related bodily information mediating self-experience, might be at the basis of the deficits and imbalance in the pre-reflective relationship of the bodily self to the social world observed in schizophrenia.

Opening Reception | 2 Exhibitions: Queer Cut Utopias / Of Mythic Worlds


Xiyadie: Queer Cut Utopias This will be the first New York solo exhibition of work by Chinese artist Xiyadie. The name Xiyadie, which translates to Siberian Butterfly, is one the artist chose for himself to describe his upbringing in Weinan, a city in the Shaanxi Province of Northwest China. A reflection of his personal and artistic evolution, the pseudonym also denotes Xiyadie’s enduring resilience despite the fact that he has never been able to freely show his work or live openly with regard to his sexual orientation. Queer Cut Utopias will feature more than thirty of Xiyadie’s intricate paper-cuts, dating from the early 1980s through today, each of which articulates his longing to fully express his queer desire. Of Mythic Worlds: Works from the Distant Past through the Present This show will explore the ways in which rituals, myths, traditions, ideologies, and beliefs can intersect across cultures, histories, and time periods. The exhibition brings together fifty-three works by more than thirty artists including Jordan Belson, Lee Bontecou, Cameron, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Walter De Maria, Steffani Jemison, Duane Linklater, Yutaka Matsuzawa, Georgia O’Keeffe, Betye Saar, Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, and Jack Whitten, among others. Spanning a wide range of historical periods and cultural traditions, Of Mythic Worlds highlights the esoteric and often elusive pursuit of understanding phenomena that are outside of our objective, worldly experience.

Opening Reception | Carrie Rudd: Vitals II


An exhibition of new paintings by American artist Carrie Rudd. Rudd’s painting practice is deeply engaged with the possibilities of abstraction. Resistant to easy categorization, she actively synthesizes her thoughts as she handles paint on canvas: painting through to understand what she is painting, assigning frameworks for an idea within a deliberate compositional state. Hinging on a play of space and the physical manifestation of a thought process, the result bursts with fevered energy. Oil paint is applied, scraped off, and redoubled to conjure a quicksilver quality—flashes of light and motion reminiscent of a Stan Brakhage film.

Discussion | Red, White, Yellow, and Black: 1972–73


In December 1972 and April 1973, Shigeko Kubota, Mary Lucier, Cecilia Sandoval and Charlotte Warren conceived of “multimedia concerts” at The Kitchen under the coalition Red, White, Yellow and Black—a name that explicitly associated each member with their cultural identity. Exemplifying their individual activities and backgrounds rather than act as a collective, the four women presented multimedia work which has notably dematerialized after the concerts, and has since been reconstructed only through scholarly text. In recognition of the 50th anniversary of these performances, this exhibition will bring together rarely seen archival material from the evenings in addition to the restaging of Kubota’s first video sculpture, Riverrun- Video Water Poem (1972), and Lucier and Sandoval's The Occasion of Her First Dance and How She Looked (1973).

Book Discussion | Magic To Do: Pippin's Fantastic, Fraught Journey to Broadway and Beyond


A discussion with Elysa Gardner, about her book which celebrates the 50th anniversary of Pippin's opening, two-time Pulitzer Prize jury member Elysa Gardner turns her attention to this innovative show, the musical retelling of the story of Prince Pippin, son of Charlemagne, and his quest for an "extraordinary life." Magic to Do dives deep into the legendary clashes, backstage drama, and incredible artistic synergy that produced one of Broadway's most influential musicals, a show that paved the way for the pop-informed musicals that we know and love today. Full of big personalities, brilliant creative minds, and never-before-told stories, Magic to Do is an intimate look at a moment in history, a time and a place in which popular culture was as defined by conflict—between the young and the old, idealism and cynicism, creation and destruction—as anything else. Gardner draws out this friction through her examination of the creative struggles between Pippin's director/choreographer, the iconic Bob Fosse, for whom the show would mark a massive career resurgence, and its young composer/lyricist, Stephen Schwartz (of Wicked fame), who was making his Broadway debut.
