Lecture | Ukrainian Leftist Press and World War, 1917-1918 (online)


Ukrainian leftist public discourse on the world war is studied on the basis of the newspapers Robytnicha Hazeta and Borotba. The first mentioned was the organ of the Ukrainian Social Democratic Labour Party, while the second was the newspaper of the Ukrainian Socialist Revolutionary Party. Chronologically, the study covers the period from the launching of the papers to the Ukrainian Treaty of Brest-Litovsk January 27/February 9, 1918. The first issue of Robytnicha Hazetaappeared on March 30 and that of Borotba on April 17, 1917. At first, the two newspapers supported the idea of revolutionary defensism: while the front must be held, peace must be concluded without annexations or reparations. However, in summer and fall, the Ukrainian leftists wrote on the war in increasingly critical tone. They also demanded participation of the representatives of Ukraine in the peace conference. After the Soviet Russian attack on Ukraine in December 1917, the Ukrainian interests, and the survival of Ukraine as a state took priority over international solidarity or general opposition to imperialism.

Discussion | Artist Talk: Sunday, August 9, 1908 (online)


Artist Matt Mullican joins Brooklyn Rail editor-at-large Dan Cameron for a conversation. It concludes with a poetry reading by Patrick Hill. Matt Mullican is a contemporary artist best known for combining performance, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and video as a means of exploring the subjective through the intersection of communal signage and personal semiotics. A part of the "Pictures Generation" alongside Jack Goldstein, Cindy Sherman, Sherrie Levine, and Richard Prince, Mullican decodes images and signs through diagrams, patterns, and written words. The artist has also been known to examine his own subconscious through hypnotism in his quest to understand patterns and how they may be broken. Mullican's works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others. Mullican lives and works in New York and Berlin.

The first-ever full-length theatrical LEGO movie follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person (the MasterBuilder) and the key to saving his LEGO world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers -- including an old mystic (voiced by Morgan Freeman) and LEGO Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) — on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together — a journey for which Emmett is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. Now the fate of the world is in his tiny yellow hands.

Opening Reception | Wanderlust: Hiroshige's Journey Through the 60-Odd Provinces


Indulge your wanderlust through Hiroshige’s complete masterpiece series Famous Places in the 60-odd Provinces (1853-1856).

At Hiroshige’s hand, each of Japan’s 68 historical provinces come to life through a spectrum of natural wonders, regional specialties, and popular pilgrimage destinations. Infused with the values of Edo’s floating world and the 19th-century zeal for travel, these meisho-e (famous place pictures) urge the armchair traveler to discover what’s waiting just beyond each horizon line. Assembled over many years, this set includes all 69 designs of the series as well as the title page.

Gallery Talk | "An Inventive and Creating Genius": Drawings by Giovanni Battista Piranesi: Exhibition Tour


While Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s lasting fame is based above all on his etchings, his work was first developed in vigorous sketches. Yet, few of his drawings are finished works, and virtually none matches exactly the final print, object, or building for which it was preparatory. Instead, we see in his drawings both the creation of his ideas and their rigorous editing, a process in which Piranesi might take his start from a view of Rome, an archaeological fragment, or a bit of architectural theory before creating something with a Piranesian stamp all its own. Examining drawings from across Piranesi's career, John Marciari, Charles W. Engelhard Curator, will explore the distinctive aspects of Piranesi's graphic style and the use and reuse of drawings in his busy workshop.

Performance | Adelaide Ristori: The Traveling Diva


2022 marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of the most important Italian actresses to grace the stages all around the world: Adelaide Ristori (1822-1906).

Adelaide Ristori (1822-1906) was a diva, a revolutionary, a pioneer, a wife, a mother, and a theatrical legend. KIT's Laura Caparrotti and Alice Lussiana Parente will introduce this amazing woman in a lecture-performance while Alessandra Vannucci from the University of Rio de Janeiro, will talk about her intense correspondence with the last Emperor of Brazil.
