Book Discussion | The Algorithm: How AI Decides Who Gets Hired, Monitored, Promoted, and Fired and Why We Need to Fight Back Now (online)


Hilke Schellmann's new book takes readers on a journalistic detective story, meeting job applicants and employees who have been subjected to these technologies, playing AI-based video games that companies use for hiring, and investigating algorithms that scan our online activity to construct personality profiles— including if we are prone to self-harm. She convinces whistleblowers to share results of faulty AI-tools, and tests algorithms that analyze job candidates’ facial expressions and tools that predict from our voices if we are anxious or depressed. Schellmann finds employees whose every keystrokes were tracked and AI that analyzes group discussions or even predicts when someone may leave a company. Her reporting reveals in detail how much employers already know about us and how little we know about the technologies that are used on us.

Talk | Israel and World Jewry in a Time of Crisis (online)


For more than 40 years, David Harris has assumed a front-row seat when it comes to Jewish and pro-Israel advocacy. As the Chief Executive Officer of American Jewish Committee (AJC) -- a position he held from 1990-2022 -- he was honored more than 20 times by foreign governments for his international diplomacy work, making him arguably the most decorated Jewish organizational leader in U.S. history. Under Harris' tenure, AJC established strong relations with governments in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa, and even explored relations with the Arab world years before the Abraham Accords. Currently, Harris is the anchor of the "Defending Israel" show on the Jewish Broadcasting Service, for which he serves as a strategic analyst.

Lecture | Lost Detectives: Early Russian Crime Fiction, Visual Adaptation, and the Art of Waiting (online)


According to Susan Sweeney, ‘in its formal elements, such as sequence, suspense, and closure, as well as in content, the detective story dramatizes the workings of narrative itself’. Although late nineteenth-century examples of Russophone crime fiction differ in some significant respects from the archetypal detective stories of Edgar Allan Poe and Arthur Conan Doyle envisaged by Sweeney, they nevertheless provide fertile ground on which to consider the impact of storytelling devices. This talk, in two complementary parts, will examine the role of narrative focalisation, temporal organisation and information gaps in works of late imperial Russian crime fiction and their adaptation. In the first part, Claire Whitehead will discuss Aleksandra Sokolova’s 1890 novel, Without a Trace, and the various ways in which it exploits diegetic devices to explore issues related to the marginalisation and brutalisation of women in a patriarchal society. In the second part, Carol Adlam will discuss her graphic novel The Russian Detective (Penguin Books, 2024), a free adaptation of Semyon Panov’s 1872 novel, Three Courts, or Murder During the Ball, and a response to the genre of early crime fiction more broadly. Carol will discuss her deployment of varied visual codes as analogues to the original text’s devices of digression, hesitation, and suspense.

Book Discussion | Double Click: Twin Photographers in the Golden Age of Magazines by Carol Kino (In Person AND Online!)


ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED From the renowned art journalist, a dual biography of identical twin sisters who became groundbreaking fashion photographers in 1940s New York City. The McLaughlin twins were trailblazing female photographers, celebrated in their time but largely forgotten since. Frances was the only female photographer on staff in Cond? Nast's photo studio, and her work appeared in Glamour and Vogue. Her sister Kathryn's surrealistic portraits filled the era's new "career girl" magazines, including Charm and Mademoiselle. Both twins married Harper's Bazaar photographers and socialized with a glittering crowd. In this new biography, Carol Kino uses their story to illuminate the lives of young women during this golden era of magazine photography, an early twentieth-century moment marked by proto-feminist thinking, excitement about photography's burgeoning creative potential, and the ferment of wartime New York. Carol Kino will discuss her book with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gilbert King.

Opening Reception | Francesca Woodman: Prints from 1975-1980


The exhibition presents key prints from approximately 1975 through 1980. Photographing in Providence, Rhode Island; Rome; Ravenna, Italy; and New York, Woodman situated herself and others within dilapidated interiors and ancient architecture to compose her tableaux. Using objects such as chairs and plinths along with architectural elements including doorways, walls, and windows, she staged contrasts with the performative presence of the figures, presenting the body itself as sculpture. In the Self-Deceit series (1978), she photographed herself nude in a room with crumbling walls, standing, crawling, or crouching with a frameless mirror. Through compositional fragmentation and blurring, Woodman throws into question the conceit that photography offers a revelation of the self.

Opening Reception | Fred Schmidt-Arenales: It Is a Good Project and Should Be Built


This exhibition focuses on a proposed $57 billion water development infrastructure project called the Texas Coastal Barrier Project, colloquially known as the Ike Dike. Expanding upon the existing Galveston Seawall, the Ike Dike is framed as a means of protection from hurricane-induced storm surge flooding in Galveston Bay and along the petrochemical corridor in the Houston ship channel. When completed, it will include a greater than 2 mile long ocean barrier that, when closed, will plug the entrance to Galveston Bay.  Employing documentary and narrative filmmaking strategies, this three channel video installation explores the symbolic and unconscious projections underpinning the Ike Dike. The scenes toggle between recordings of actual bureaucratic proceedings and open-ended imaginary scenarios in which avatars representing state actors engage in decidedly non-bureaucratic actions. By untangling the governmental interests driving this  project, the work offers viewers a field for imagining how they might intervene in such opaque processes. It contemplates human attempts to engineer nature into submission under the guise of resiliency, and at the cost of huge ecological detriment.

Book Club | Prophet Song by Paul Lynch


On a dark, wet evening in Dublin, scientist and mother-of-four Eilish Stack answers her front door to find two officers from Ireland’s newly formed secret police on her step. They have arrived to interrogate her husband, a trade unionist. Ireland is falling apart, caught in the grip of a government turning towards tyranny. As the life she knows and the ones she loves disappear before her eyes, Eilish must contend with the dystopian logic of her new, unraveling country. How far will she go to save her family? And what—or who—is she willing to leave behind? The winner of the Booker Prize 2023, Prophet Song presents a terrifying and shocking vision of a country sliding into authoritarianism and a deeply human portrait of a mother’s fight to hold her family together.

Opening Reception | Swamplands: Group Show


A yearlong research and exhibition series focused on the ethical and technical entanglements of water. This program takes the murky soil and unstable grounds of swamps as a conceptual framework to highlight the ecological and socioeconomic intricacies that lie at the threshold between bodies of water and land. Presenting newly commissioned works and exhibitions that are anchored alongside the coast of the Gulf of Mexico by artists Imani Jacqueline Brown, Gala Porras-Kim, and Fred Schmidt-Arenales, Swamplands explores unique social, political, and economic conditions in the tidelands of Louisiana, Yucatan, and Texas respectively. In addition to the three exhibitions, this multi-sited project will also unfold through public programs, radio broadcasts, a research fellowship, an open call, and a thematic reader that will aid in connecting with other geographies dealing with the increasing complexities of wetlands. Individually and collectively, these artistic expressions challenge perceptions of swamps as unstable environments, portraying them instead as sites of inherent duality and hybridity, both of emergence and transformation, of care and kinship, as well as of violence and neglect.

Concert | Environmental Sound Artist Performs with Jazz Musician


Mary Edwards is a composer and sound artist whose interdisciplinary practice encompasses themes of temporality, impermanence, nostalgia and the natural world that recur throughout her work. Everywhere We Are is the Farthest Place is her "ode rather than an elegy" to the transforming Arctic landscape, climate vulnerability, elemental sensuality and terrestrial connectivity that also draws partly on sound as a vibrational phenomenon and Space Analogues. Edwards began this project while sailing on an artist and scientist research expedition above the 78th Parallel to Svalbard (halfway between Norway and the North Pole) to make field recordings and listen to the rhythm and breath of our planet from another pulse point. She documented sound properties of glacial geology and oceanographic data sonification--distinct groans and reverberant calving ice tumbling from the sublime glacier walls into the depths of fjords, the movement of subterranean rivers, Beluga whale song and vocal intonations--intended to provide sonic access for all by "de-centralizing the centered and un-othering the others." Mary Edwards (keyboards, Waterphone, electronics) will install and perform the piece with Michael Eaton (saxophone, flute, electronics,) a Brooklyn-based composer, and educator active in contemporary jazz and free improvisation.

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, this is a "back-stairs" virtual tour of the Merchant's House to experience what daily life was really like for the Tredwells' Irish servants, and for the thousands of women like them who worked in domestic service in 19th century New York City.

Poetry Reading | Deep Thoughts from a Shallow Grave: Epitaphs to Die For


A gloriously dark book filled with witty illustrations about life and death, Deep Thoughts from a Shallow Grave celebrates life in its humorous and often satirical confrontation of death. Conceived, written and drawn by Anthony Martignetti over the past few years, these tongue-in-cheek illustrated tombstones were first shared with friends who needed a laugh, bringing some (albeit dark) humor to their days when they were otherwise going through tough times. More than one hundred of these off-kilter meditations on life and death are now collected in this book. Handwritten epitaphs such as “Waiting to inhale” and “There are fifty better ways to leave your lover” will have readers chuckling and prompt reflection on the absurdity of this fleeting and precious thing we call life.

Book Discussion | I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together: Growing Up Gay in the Toronto Suburbs


An astonishing, epic graphic memoir by Maurice Vellekoop. Meet little Maurice Vellekoop, the youngest of four children raised by Dutch immigrants in the 1970s in a blue-collar suburb of Toronto. Despite their working-class milieu, the Vellekoops are devoted to art, music, and film, and they instill a deep reverence for the arts in young Maurice—except for literature. He’d much rather watch Cher and Carol Burnett on TV than read a book. He also loves playing with his girlfriends’ Barbie dolls and helping his Mum in her hair salon, which she runs out of the basement of their house. In short, he is really, really gay. Which is a huge problem, because the family is part of the Christian Reformed Church, a strict Calvinist sect. They go to church twice on Sunday, and they send their kids to a private Christian school, catechism classes, and the Calvinist Cadet Corps. Needless to say, the church is intolerant of homosexuality. Though she loves her son deeply, Maurice’s mother, Ann, cannot accept him, setting the course for a long estrangement. Vellekoop struggles through all of this until he graduates from high school and is accepted into the Ontario College of Art in the early 1980s. Here he finds a welcoming community of bohemians, including a brilliant, flamboyantly gay professor who encourages him to come out. But just as he’s dipping his toes into the waters of gay sex and love, a series of romantic disasters, followed by a violent attack, sets him back severely. And then the shadow of the AIDS era descends. Maurice reacts by retreating to the safety of childhood obsessions, and seeks to satisfy his emotional needs with film- and theatre-going, music, boozy self-medication, and prolific art-making. When these tactics inevitably fail, Vellekoop at last embarks on a journey towards his heart’s true desire. In psychotherapy, the spiderweb of family, faith, guilt, sexuality, mental health, the intergenerational fallout of World War II, King Ludwig II of Bavaria, French Formula Hairspray, and much more at last begins to untangle. But it’s going to be a long, messy, and occasionally hilarious process. I’m So Glad We Had This Time Together is an enthralling portrait of what it means to be true to yourself, to learn to forgive, and to be an artist.

Book Discussion | Lou Reed: The King of New York (in-person and online)


Author Will Hermes offers the definitive narrative of the great rock-poet’s life and legacy. We witness Reed’s complex partnerships with David Bowie, Andy Warhol, John Cale, and Laurie Anderson while tracking the deadpan wit, street-smart edge, and poetic flights that defined his craft as a singer and songwriter with the Velvet Underground and beyond. Hermes shows Reed as a pioneer in living and writing about nonbinary sexuality, an artist who pursued beauty and noise with equal fervor, and a turbulent figure who transformed American culture.

Book Discussion | The Paradox of Violence in Venezuela: Revolution, Crime, and Policing During Chavismo


Crime and violence soared in twenty-first-century Venezuela even as poverty and inequality decreased, contradicting the conventional wisdom that these are the underlying causes of violence. This book explains the rise of violence under both Hugo Ch?vez and Nicol?s Maduro--leftist presidents who made considerable investment in social programs and political inclusion. Contributors argue that violence arose not from the frustration of inequality, or the needs created by poverty, but rather from the interrelated factors of a particular type of revolutionary governance, extraordinary oil revenues, a reliance on militarized policing, and the persistence of concentrated disadvantage. These factors led to dramatic but unequal economic growth, massive institutional and social change, and dysfunctional criminal justice policies that destabilized illicit markets and social networks, leading to an increase in violent conflict resolution. The Paradox of Violence in Venezuela reorients thinking about violence and its relationship to poverty, inequality, and the state. With editors Ver?nica Zubillaga (Universidad Sim?n Bol?var), Rebecca Hanson (University of Florida), and David Smilde (Tulane University).

Speaker Ann Reynolds teaches art history at the University of Texas at Austin. Her talk emerges from her current book entitled Imagining an Altogether, a history of intergenerational relationships among New York artists and writers that were shaped by shared, if heterogeneous, commitments to Surrealism and its legacy, primarily through a love of film. Engaging the roving eye and metaphorical caress of the movie camera, Parker Tyler illuminates the paradoxical erotics of Rodin's work.

Book Discussion | The Light of Learning: Hasidism in Poland on the Eve of the Holocaust (in-person and online)


The Light of Learning tells the story of an unexpected Hasidic revival in Poland on the eve of the Holocaust. In the aftermath of World War I, as secularism spread, Hasidic leaders rapidly reinvented themselves as educators devoted to rescuing the youth by means of world-renowned yeshivas, Bais Yaakov schools for girls and women, and eventually underground yeshiva bunkers during the Holocaust. The Light of Learning belies notions of late Hasidic decadence and decline and transforms our understanding of Polish Jewry during its final hour. This is a presentation on this book with author Glenn Dynner along with performances of Hasidic nigunim by Lorin Sklamberg of the Klezmatics.
