Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Workshop | Traditional English Afternoon Tea


English-style tea, black tea, Pally's rich tea biscuit will be served. “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”- Henry James Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. While the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared. Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.

Author Reading | Kailash Yatra: A Long Walk to Mount Kailash Through Humla


Mount Kailash is a holy mountain on the western edge of the Tibetan Plateau in China. Over recent decades, this eerily symmetrical mountain, holy to Bonpos, Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, animists and New Age seekers, has emerged as a globally important site for pilgrimage and tourism. This mountain lies close to the point where the borders of north India and western Nepal meet China. What has been relatively little known to the general audience is the central role that transborder interdependence has played in shaping the lives, livelihoods and culture of the communities residing in these borderland regions, in the proximity of Kailash. In the monsoon of 2016, an international team of social scientists, artists and members of the local community undertook a difficult 300-kilometre-long trek from district Humla, western Nepal, into the Tibetan Autonomous Region, China. The aim was to document and understand the contemporary rhythms of livelihoods, material culture and perceptions of the sacred among the communities living along an ancient southern route to Mount Kailash, which had been in use for transborder trade and pilgrimage for several centuries. This book, studded with lush photographs, brings to life several individuals and scenes encountered during this expedition-stories of the past, of change, of aspirations, of the sheer beauty and vulnerabilities of life in one of the least accessible but most sacred corners of the world. Photograhper Kevin Bubriski has been photographing Nepal for forty years since arriving there as a Peace Corps village water systems volunteer in 1975 to 1978. Bubriski’s fine art photographs are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art,  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.  Kevin was recipient of Guggenheim, Fulbright and NEA fellowships.

Fusing historical processes and contemporary imagery, Aziz + Cucher capture the collective sense of modern-day dysphoria in multilayered scenes of chaos, conflict, jubilation, industry, absurdity, and ambiguity.

Opening Reception | Lacey Lives: Oil-on-Linen Paintings


Alexander Kaletski's show features a series of oil-on-linen paintings that explore a technique that the artist has developed over the past twenty years. The subtle layering of pigment creates an ornate tapestry, weaving an existential fiber that comprises the tenuous layers of individual psyches and furthermore the intricate mesh of human relationships.

Opening Reception | Pictures from Another Time: Photographs by Bob Colacello, 1976-1982


An exhibition of photographs taken by Bob Colacello during the years he served as editor of Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine. Pictures from Another Time features approximately 150 vintage and unique prints—most never previously exhibited—made with Colacello’s Minox 35 EL camera, the first miniature camera capable of making full frame 35 millimeter photographs. Works on view reflect the societal fluidity and social mobility of “the Me Decade,” an era of emerging liberation movements in American culture. Colacello was in the middle of it all—from late night revels at the era-defining clubs Studio 54 and Regine’s, to the inaugurations of Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan—armed always with his Minox. Matte black and no larger than a pack of cigarettes, the tiny camera could be slipped in and out of a pocket to capture an instant. Colacello’s images of the Seventies are situated at a cultural turning point, when the private hours of public figures still hovered within a realm of mystique that seems distant in the internet age.

Musical | Rothschild & Sons: A Musical Play In Concert


Rothschild & Sons is a one-act musical about faith, love, ingenuity, and how a family more than a century before the Holocaust dared to survive and thrive in the face of persecution and hate. Mayer and Gutele Rothschild - and their five sons- struggle to overcome the prejudice of late-eighteenth-century European society, as they build a family banking business that takes them from the Jewish ghetto to the courts of the rich and powerful. On the way, they come to dominate European finance, help fund Napoleon's defeat and secure a Declaration of Rights for their people from the Crowned Heads of State. This universal story of defeating adversity and affirming human dignity springs from the hearts and minds of Broadway legends Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock (creators of Fiddler on the Roof) and Tony-nominated writer Sherman Yellen. Based on the novel The Rothschilds by Frederic Morton and their original musical The Rothschilds, this re-imagined -play with music by Yellen introduces several unheard Bock and Harnick songs and revised lyrics by Mr. Harnick. A discussion featuring Sherman Yellen (librettist- Rothschild & Sons) and Professor Jessica Hillman author Echoes of the Holocaust on the American Musical Stage will follow the performance.

Opening Reception | Soviet Childhood: Scenes of Everyday Life


The first solo exhibition in the United States featuring the work of Zoya Cherkassky. Through the depiction of the quotidian lives of the final generation of Soviet children, Cherkassky creates a nostalgic and approachable portrait of the Soviet Union. One can relate to the banality of these scenes, with only the fashions and details peppered throughout disclosing the strange time and place in which Cherkassky and her subjects lived. Cherkassky was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1976 while the country was still under the control of the Soviet Union. She and her family immigrated to Israel when she was fifteen years old in 1991, the year of the Soviet Union’s collapse. By painting her personal narrative, Cherkassky’s work is intrinsically political and complex; only to be amplified by her marriage to a Nigerian fellow immigrant into Israel. Cherkassky’s mid-career survey at The Israel Museum this past year explored the friction between the flux of immigrants from the Soviet Union and Israeli Society.

Author Reading | The Taming of New York’s Washington Square: A Wild Civility


Located in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Washington Square Park is a 9.75-acre public park that is perhaps best known for its historic Washington Square Arch, a landmark at the foot of Fifth Avenue. Hundreds, if not thousands, pass through the park every day, some sit on benches enjoying the sunshine, play a game of chess, watch their children play in the playground, take their dog to the dog runs, or sit by the fountain or, sometimes, buy or sell drugs. The park has an extremely low crime rate. Sociologist and local resident Erich Goode wants to know why. He notes that many visitors do violate park rules and ordinances, even engaging in misdemeanors like cigarette and marijuana smoking, alcohol consumption, public urination, skateboarding and bike riding. And yet, he argues, contrary to the well-known “broken windows” theory, which suggests that small crimes left unchecked lead to major crimes, serious crimes hardly ever take place there. Why with such an immense volume of infractions—and people—are there so little felonious or serious, and virtually no violent, crime?

Opening Reception | Tom Wesselmann: Steelcuts


An exhibition focused on the revolutionary works Tom Wesselmann began creating in the early 1980s. This exhibition includes a selection of impressive metal works as well as a variety of media related to their production including paintings, prints and works on paper. “Steelcuts” explores Wesselmann’s pioneering use of industrial technologies to create the new medium of laser-cut wall sculpture. Wesselmann pared down his subjects to their most basic element, their lines, and laser-cut them from steel. In doing, so he created a fresh experience for the viewer, pulling two-dimensional drawings off the paper and into life, forming three-dimensional works that quite literally “pop” off the wall. Wesselmann reimagined motifs present throughout his oeuvre, creating a wonderful array of nudes, landscapes and still lives.

Lecture | Fascism and Populism: Are They Useful Categories for Comparative Sociological Analysis?


This lecture will draw upon interdisciplinary scholarship and empirical cases to revisit the terms fascism and populism. Institutionalized politics is its focus. Contemporary fascist and populist politics is increasingly global. This talk argues that comparative political and historical sociologists need to develop an analytically cogent approach to researching this encroaching political phenomenon. The talk suggests a research agenda that treats fascism and populism as more than conceptual categories. Speaker Mabel Berezin is Professor of Sociology at Cornell who writes on challenges to democratic cohesion and solidarity in Europe and the United States.

Concert | Concert And Reception: Anniversary Celebration For Joaquin Rodrigo


Music for guitar, voice, flute and dance by Joaquín Rodrigo together with a reception. Performers Federico Diaz, guitar; Svjetlana Kabalin, flute; Anna Tonna, Mezzo-soprano; Ana de la Paz, Classical Spanish Dancer. Joaquín Rodrigo Vidre (1901 – 1999), was a Spanish composer and a virtuoso pianist. Rodrigo's music is among the most popular music of the 20th century. In particular, his Concierto de Aranjuez is considered one of the pinnacles of Spanish music and of the guitar concerto repertoire. Rodrigo was highly decorated for his works. Despite his Spanish National Prize for Orchestra (1943), he was honored with the highest award for composition in Spain, the Premio Nacional de MusicaI in 1983. Then, in 1991, he was granted a place in the Spanish Nobility on the order of King Juan Carlos I, whereby Rodrigo became the “Marques de los Jardines de Aranjuez” or the “Marquis of the Gardens of Aranjuez”. He was also a recipient of Spain’s highest civilian honor, the “Prince of Asturias Award of the Arts”, in 1996, three years before his death. Rodrigo’s greatness was also recognized by the French Government, as he was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1960. In 1998, he was promoted to Commandeur des Arts des Lettres. In addition, he was given six honorary degrees from universities world over.

Lecture | The History Of Cartography


From prehistoric Europe to the 20th century, societies have employed the principles of mapping in various forms. Dr. Matthew Edney, professor of geography and the Osher professor in the history of cartography at Southern Maine University, discusses his years of research that produced six volumes on cartography and how it has been practiced around the world through the ages.  Under Dr. Edney’s leadership, The History of Cartography Project, a research, editorial, and publishing venture that treats maps as cultural artifacts, has drawn international attention for its monumental vision and scope. Prepared for both the scholarly and lay audiences, the resulting multi-volume History of Cartography series offers the interpretive structure necessary to assess, appreciate, and analyze maps from all periods and cultures. Hear from the visionary researcher himself, and learn about his extensive efforts to re-frame the thinking mechanism on the history of cartography and the history of mapping.

Performance | A Knock at the Door: Performance by Theatre of the Oppressed


What does it take to be a “good” parent and who decides that? A phone call, a knock at the door, and the entire world is turned upside-down. The trauma reverberates from generation to generation — how can we stop this cycle? Theatre of the Oppressed NYC was founded in 2011 by Katy Rubin, who trained with Augusto Boal in Rio, in 2008. After returning to New York and discovering a lack of effective "popular theatre" – interactive theatre created by communities facing oppression – Rubin helped form the Jan Hus Homeless Theatre Troupe, which is now called Concrete Justice (TONYC’s flagship troupe).

Opening Reception | Painting Between the Lines: Deeply Poetic Conceptual Art


The exhibition will comprise selections from key bodies of work representing the long, prolific, and deeply poetic career of this German-born and Italy-based Conceptualist: the Eigenschriften (1968–1973), Transcrizioni (1973–1979), Radical Writings (1983–1995), Avant-testo (1990s–early 2000s), and Gehen (begun in 2017 and ongoing). Since the 1960s, Irma Blank’s oeuvre has existed in the space between language and gesture, unfolding over six decades as a solitary journey into the complex relationship of writing, art, and life. In each body of work, she investigates the ways in which a sign or a mark can represent a feeling, an idea, or the experience of time. In her first major series, the Eigenschriften, Blank filled sheets of paper with dense, scriptural signs that upon first glance resemble calligraphy, but are revealed upon closer inspection to be illegible marks. By unmooring her ‘writing’ from content and negating its functionality, Blank transformed the very notion of reliable meaning and set her practice on a metaphysical course.
