Conference |
This initiative investigates Brazilian modernist photography, its relationship to race, and its place within a dynamic international network of images and ideas. From experimental work that resonates with broader postwar trends of creative photographic expression to modern forms with local and sometimes ethnic inflections, photographers were instrumental in formulating new visual languages in Brazil. Since 1939, the São Paulo-based Foto Cine Clube Bandeirante (FCCB) nurtured a wide range of avant-garde practices that anticipated many elements of Concrete Art in Brazil featured at the first São Paulo Biennial in 1951. This diverse group included photographers from immigrant communities such as São Paulo’s growing German, Hungarian, Jewish, Italian, and Japanese populations. These artists participated in international networks of exchange around the globe that increased their visibility and expanded their approach. Taking FCCB as a starting point, the conference stretches the boundaries of what we understand as experimental art in Brazil in the mid-twentieth century. Photography has been largely excluded from current scholarship about Brazilian modernism and abstraction, and Brazilian photographers of this era are overlooked in narratives around modern photography. The aims of the conference are thus threefold: first, we will examine the distinctive nature of Brazilian modernist photography. Second, we hope to explore photography within the context of modernist and abstract art in Brazil, probing the relationship of modernist photography to other marginalized media and art forms such as mail art and Afro-Brazilian art. Third, we encourage an international perspective that investigates networks of modernist photography through transnational photo clubs, salons, exhibitions, and the many magazines that flourished domestically and across Latin America, the United States and Europe.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why.

The son of an engineer, Burden’s fascination with the craft of building and construction grew beyond his early childhood years into his post-performative works; this highlighting a dichotomy between his childhood hobbies of constructing Lego models, to that of re-creating architectural kits as a professional artist later on in his adulthood. Burden was able to extend his child-like curiosity into his art making, bringing with him an appreciation for high risks, as well as a strong desire for a sense of innocence so many artists hope to prevail when they enter a new state of mind. Over time, Burden has shown that like a child, he is unafraid of taking on risky challenges, exploring unfamiliar mediums, and rewording ideas of the norm.

Drain’s first New York City solo exhibition in a decade is named after author Junot Diaz’s call to locate optimism through new activism and empowerment, by strengthening our “utopia muscles” in the face of fear and anger towards our current chaotic national condition. While this is Drain’s most overtly political exhibition title to date, it peacefully dovetails with his ongoing interest in how individualized and labor-intensive eforts—particularly in performance, painting, collage, and sculpture—can shape collective identity in a finished artwork.

Lisa Fairstein takes inspiration from signs and abstractions generated by today's image-sharing culture. Her creative process involves re-staging and re-photographing selected fragments from digital image feeds, acknowledging the poetic possibilities found within the visual short-hand of web-based photography. By isolating and reframing these aspects of captured and shared moments, she makes slow photographs motivated by accelerated looking.

Lecture |
After leaving the Zionist Movement in 1905 following the so-called Uganda Controversy, the Jewish Territorialists sought to create settlements for Jews outside both Europe and Palestine. They explored possibilities from Angola to Australia and Tasmania, and from Madagascar to French and British Guiana and Suriname. At the head of the movement stood several prominent Jewish figures. Anglo-Jewish writer Israel Zangwill (1864-1926, pictured), author of classics such as Children of the Ghetto and The Melting Pot, was the first leader of the movement. He was followed as of the late 1930s by Isaac N. Steinberg (1888-1957), who had briefly served as Commissar of Justice under Lenin in 1917. There hardly could have been two more different men than the English gentleman Zangwill and the Russian socialist-revolutionary Steinberg, but both did share an almost literary-inspired idealism, infused with Jewish traditional and universalist elements. In this talk, Dr. Laura Almagor will touch upon the colorful life stories of the central Territorialist leaders, as a gateway to exploring the history of the Territorialist movement and its many—nowadays seemingly fantastical—pursuits.

Borrowing its enigmatic title from the words of Guillaume Apollinaire, the show chronicles the making of a multilayered project by Mexican artist Erick Meyenberg (Mexico, 1980). Working for two years with a local high school marching band in Mexico City, Meyenberg orchestrated a complex performance which took place throughout the capital and that provokes a reflection on the pedagogical machinery of discipline, education, gender, and the state. The night of the opening, Meyenberg engages in a conversation with curators Gabriela Rangel and Lucía Sanromán (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts), and Professor Anna Indych-López (The Graduate Center, CUNY).

Discussion |
Le Conversazioni is the international festival created by Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini that takes place annually on the Isle of Capri, in New York (at the Morgan Library and at the New York Historical Society), in Bogota and in Rome, with the participation of some of the leading lights in contemporary English literature and international culture. In the last few years some of today’s great writers have come together in Capri to discuss the chosen theme for each year: identity, the relationship between the word and the image, memory, deadly sins, human rights, eros, winners & losers, revolution, diversity.   Followed by a screening of the documentary Diversity, directed by Carlotta Corradi, about the previous edition (2016) with Valeria Luiselli, Donato Carrisi, Gary Shteyngart, Erica Jong, Hanan al-Shaykh, Garth Risk Hallberg, and Marlon James. In English.

Lecture |
This talk will introduce the notion of a critical sadhana as a distinct type of theory that explicitly embraces a notion of spirituality. As such it is a type of theorizing that does not fit neatly into the categories of secular critical theories. The need for this type of theory is in response to debates in Africana Philosophy and Africana Studies about the issue of spirituality in general, and the legacy of African spirituality in particular. Speaker Paget Henry is Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies at Brown University.

He is currently a fellow in residence at the New York Institute for the Humanities.

Workshop |
Learning to be mindful—to pay attention in the moment without resistance or judgment—can shift the course of our lives. Instead of being driven by our fears and hopes, we learn how to listen to ourselves and others, to pause and respond wisely. In this course they will practice MBSR’s tools for living: the body scan, sitting meditation, mindful yoga and walking meditation, all of which increase self-awareness and empathy, connect us to our intuition, weaken unwholesome mental habits and replace struggle and stress with ease and relaxation. They will experiment with mindfulness while eating, communicating, and engaging in everyday activities. Come discover how living in the moment, with awareness and curiosity, can open your life and fill it with peace and wonder. With: Amy Gross
