Discussion | Curatorial Roundtable (online)


A talk with Magdalena Moskalewicz, chief curator at FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art. An art historian, author and editor, Moskalewicz has engaged in the revisionist rewriting of art histories and in exploring parallels between the postsocialist and postcolonial conditions through both academic publications and curatorial practice. Her scholarly research has focused on socialist modernism, neo-avantgardes, global exhibition histories and cultural policies, while her curatorial collaborations with living artists critically investigate particular histories, localities and identities with the goal of reshaping dominant narratives. She is interested in re-envisioning models of knowledge production, communication and display. The Curatorial Roundtable, an international forum for curators and institutional leaders to discuss formative and current projects, is hosted by Steven Henry Madoff, founding chair of the MA Curatorial Practice at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Lecture | The Miraculous San Francisco Discovery of Ary Arkady Lochakov's Lost Art (online)


A presentation by San Francisco Standard journalist Julie Zigoris, who was the first (and only) to report this mysterious art find to the public, following the trail of breadcrumbs to make some incredible discoveries.  One sunny May day in 2022—halfway around the world from Paris where the Jewish artist Ary Arkady Lochakov died of malnutrition in 1941—a miraculous discovery was made. Maintenance staff came upon 48 abandoned artworks in a waterside park, all of them carefully arranged as if they were meant to be discovered. 38 of the 48 artworks all had the same signature: Ary Arkady Lochakov. Port employees researched Lochakov to discover he was a member of the famed École de Paris and was featured in Hersh Fenster's essential book Our Martyred Artists.

Talk | Your Past is My Present: Does Evoking Historical Analogies Change Public Opinion Regarding Foreign Policy? (in-person and online)


Seeking international support to counter Russia’s February 2022 invasion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has publicly addressed foreign politicians and publics in several democratic nations. Media coverage paid special attention to his explicit use of historical analogies – comparing Ukraine’s current situation to salient historical events in the audience countries – to sway public opinion. Since public opinion can influence foreign policy decisions in democracies, this talk investigate whether evoking the audience country’s past effectively increases popular support for aiding Ukraine. They conducted survey experiments simultaneously in four countries where Zelensky delivered speeches rich in historical analogies – United Kingdom (WWII), United States (Pearl Harbor and 9/11), Germany and Israel (Holocaust). Speaker Anil Menon is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Merced.

Lecture | Yiddish and Hebrew Little Magazines in the Weimar Republic (online)


In this talk, Barbara Mann will discuss the "little magazine," a staple of modernist Jewish culture which flourished in the Weimar Republic. The little magazine is a distinctively portable and collaborative genre, an appropriate venue for the migrant, cosmopolitan mix of Berlin’s interwar Jewish population. Each issue blended poetry, manifestos and visual arts to create a unique form of cultural expression. Mann will explore the publishing history of Yiddish and Hebrew little magazines, their content, physical features, and readership.

Book Discussion | Life Underground: Encounters With People Below the Streets of New York (in-person and online)


Terry Williams will be discussing his latest book which explores this society below the surface and the varieties of experience among unhoused people. Bringing together anecdotal material, field observations, photographs, transcribed conversations with residents, and excerpts from personal journals, Williams provides a vivid ethnographic portrait of individual people, day-to-day activities, and the social world of the underground and their engagement with the world above, which they call "topside." He shows how marginalized people strive to make a place for themselves amid neglect and isolation as they struggle for dignity. Featuring Williams's distinctive ethnographic eye and deep empathy for those on the margins, Life Underground shines a unique light on a vanished subterranean community.

Lecture | The Balanced Body-Mind in Euripidean Tragedy and Hippocratic Medicine (in-person and online)


Theater and medicine begin with the body. Just as doctors read bodies for symptoms, so the audience reads performers for signs. In the late fifth-century Athens, both medical and theatrical texts describe the healthful body as one resting in a state of balance. A balanced body-mind results in a healthy and positive condition for the lives of citizens and their polis, and a lack of balance is problematic to their healthful function. However, while tragedy and medicine both investigate the connection between an inner state of balance and its outer manifestation through the schēma (figure, form), the genres use distinct terminology. Informed by theories of performance, this presentation will focus on Euripidean tragedy in particular to ask what, if any, relationship is there between the Hippocratics’ emphasis on the importance of metriotēs (balance) to physical health and Euripidean tragedy’s emphasis on the importance of sōphrosynē (balance) to moral health. A study of such terms as metriotēs, sōphrosynē, and schēma in Euripidean tragedy and the Hippocratic corpus may suggest the ways in which cultural values and perceptions of health influence and are influenced by embodied practices in theatre and medicine, thus offering a historical dimension to studies of the body in the field of performance studies.

Book Discussion | All the Beauty in the World: The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Me


A fascinating, revelatory portrait of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its treasures by a former New Yorker staffer who spent a decade as a museum guard. Millions of people climb the grand marble staircase to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art every year. But only a select few have unrestricted access to every nook and cranny. They’re the guards who roam unobtrusively in dark blue suits, keeping a watchful eye on the two million square foot treasure house. Caught up in his glamorous fledgling career at The New Yorker, Patrick Bringley never thought he’d be one of them. Then his older brother was diagnosed with fatal cancer and he found himself needing to escape the mundane clamor of daily life. So he quit The New Yorker and sought solace in the most beautiful place he knew. To his surprise and the reader’s delight, this temporary refuge becomes Bringley’s home away from home for a decade. We follow him as he guards delicate treasures from Egypt to Rome, strolls the labyrinths beneath the galleries, wears out nine pairs of company shoes, and marvels at the beautiful works in his care. Bringley enters the museum as a ghost, silent and almost invisible, but soon finds his voice and his tribe: the artworks and their creators and the lively subculture of museum guards—a gorgeous mosaic of artists, musicians, blue-collar stalwarts, immigrants, cutups, and dreamers. As his bonds with his colleagues and the art grow, he comes to understand how fortunate he is to be walled off in this little world, and how much it resembles the best aspects of the larger world to which he gradually, gratefully returns.

Book Discussion | On Your Feet: Fighting France's Far Right


How, in a time of vibrant need, do you surface what is repressed societally — lodged in the political unconscious? By translating it, Jacqueline Feldman has found. Combining fiction in translation, travelogue, essay, the postcard, and a scholarly monograph, On Your Feet tells the story of a provincial city’s victory over the far-right figure, Marine Le Pen. It is the story of a cat-owning local poet’s valiant resistance and of a US woman — let us say an American girl — making her own, Joan-of-Arc-like entrance into the fray. This novel in translations slows time to take, with precision, the imprint of a moment in French and world history. It was a moment when fascist speech could be distinguished, still, from the great mass, separated out — leaving the moment, like the language, open to intervention. Making contributions to the theory and practice of translation, which has been considered an applied linguistics, On Your Feet is a searching theorization of the politics of literature. What it offers, to readers of both languages or either, is a new kind of applied literature. Features a story by Nathalie Quintane.

Discussion | Artists in Conversation: Out in the (Photographic) Field


A conversation between artists John Miller and Anna Ostoya, who will each discuss one series from their photographic bodies of work. Miller’s Middle of the Day (1994-ongoing) series consists of photographs with simple parameters: All images must be produced between the hours of noon and 2pm. These photos act not only as travelogue snapshots, but also investigate a time where there is a momentary break in the day’s labor. Miller writes: “Subjectively, I find this time of day to be the most depressing, but my response may not be entirely personal or arbitrary. This is also the time of day when most people need a break, need to eat and so forth—despite the expectation that the hours designated for productive activity be used in the most ‘efficient’ way possible. Here, in other words, the work ethic collides directly with the physical limits of the human body. […] What I am interested in, then, is documenting something intangible, something invisible and something that might only attach itself to an image after it has been placed in a system: the problem of valuation.” Anna Ostoya’s Memorabilia (2021-ongoing) series is comprised of found images, mainly drawn from current news media. Each is placed in juxtaposition by the artist and mounted on a 3x6 inch panel with painted edges. Ostoya’s positioning mimics the form of stereoscopic photography and results in a process she calls “pseudomorphic,” nodding to the philosopher Oswald Spengler, to describe how preceding media and culture influence the form and shape of young, emergent culture.  Ostoya writes, “They are a reflection of what the media delivers to us in this particular part of the world, and also what is being delivered by algorithms and search engines to my devices. It’s an open question whether they’ll succeed or fail to register the same kinds of meanings in the future.” The works present an immediate dialectic between increasingly polarized worldviews, as well as upheavals of the historic past alongside current events.

Lecture | The Artists of Coenties Slip (in-person and online)


In the 1950s and ’60s, Coenties Slip—an obscure little street at the lower tip of Manhattan overlooking the East River—was home to several extraordinary, then-struggling artists: Robert Indiana, Ellsworth Kelly, Agnes Martin, James Rosenquist, Delphine Seyrig, Lenore Tawney, and Jack Youngerman. For just over a decade, this street of dilapidated sail-making lofts and maritime warehouses would serve as the unlikely site of eclectic and influential works of art and spark a singular moment of community and creativity. In the group biography The Slip, Prudence Peiffer pays homage to the locale that inspired this singular group of artists and changed the course of American art. This talk will explore the long history of one of the oldest streets in New York, the work that these artists made at the Slip from the wreckage of the city’s many former lives, and how we are shaped by our environment and how it in turn shapes our work. Speaker Prudence Peiffer is an art historian, writer, and editor, specializing in modern and contemporary art.
