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.

Concert | Medieval Music By All-Female Band


During the fourteenth century, Florence’s republican society fostered accomplishments in poetry, sculpture, architecture, and a varied musical culture. Trobár explores this milieu in a presentation of madrigals, ballate, caccias, laude, and dance music in a concert organized around the four seasons. Trobár is a small band of voices and instruments dedicated to bringing medieval music and its stories to modern audiences. The Occitan word trobar, meaning "to find, to create, to invent," encompasses the spirit of discovery and invention that we bring to interpreting medieval music as both performers and scholars. Performers Allison Monroe, voice, vielle, rebec; Elena Mullins, voice, percussion; Karin Weston, voice; Nathan Dougherty, voice (guest artist).

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.

Opening Reception | In Due Time: How Identity and Society Interact


The transparency of a person is under constant evaluation. We judge based on visibility without much deeper consideration for the opacity of a person’s experience. Even, at times, our own vision of self can be obscured. Trauma, love, rebirth, loss and a myriad of other experiences deepen the tonality between who we have been and who we are. This obsession with examining iterations of self has fueled an ongoing collage animation series utilizing 35mm images, audio selections along with archival and home video. In Due Time explores the artist's evolving intimate relationships with others and herself centered around the framework of birth and motherhood. Photogrpaher Elise R. Peterson is a storyteller analyzing the nuance of how identity interacts with varying sociopolitical factors as it relates to marginalized communities. Her visual work is centered on reinterpreting the past and envisioning the future within the framework of Blackness, evolution and cross-generational narratives.

Author Reading | Widows’ Words: Women Write on the Experience of Grief, the First Year, the Long Haul, and Everything in Between


Becoming a widow is one of the most traumatic life events that a woman can experience. Yet, as this remarkable new collection reveals, each woman responds to that trauma differently. Here, forty-three widows tell their stories, in their own words. Some were widowed young, while others were married for decades. Some cared for their late partners through long terminal illnesses, while others lost their partners suddenly. Some had male partners, while others had female partners. Yet each of these women faced the same basic dilemma: how to go on living when a part of you is gone. Image Attached

Workshop | How To Become The Perfect Candidate In The Job Market


Too many job seekers rely on postings or recruiting firms to get interviews. In today’s economy, most jobs are landed through networking and direct contact with hiring managers. Networking becomes even more important when you are not the perfect candidate for highly competitive jobs. Robert Hellmann reviews how to build and use your network effectively; find and get meetings with key contacts; increase your response rate from job postings and recruiting firms; turn an informational meeting into an interview, and how to change “no” into “yes.” Robert Hellmann has served as an adjunct instructor at New York University teaching career management, and as GetFive’s Vice President and Associate Director of its Guild of Career Coaches.

Discussion | Patriotism vs. Nationalism: Ideals for a New Social Contract


Liberal democracies are fraying: fresh ideas and policies are needed to formulate a New Social Contract to ensure that peace and democracy survives and thrives. What moral, social and political ideals can guide us through these troubled times and into the future? Patriotism has reemerged as a rallying cry towards rebuilding a national consensus and restoring acceptable social and political norms. What values define patriotism? What does it mean to be a citizen in a globalized world? How is society supposed to reorganize itself to address the major challenges of the future: immigration flows, artificial intelligence, information technology and climate change. Is liberalism the way of the future? Adam Gopnik, Bernard-Henri Lévy and Andrew McAfee discuss ways to protect the “vivre ensemble” from a uniquely rich perspective, that of a philosopher, a cultural guru, and a leading scientist and thinker in the area of technological disruption and reorganization.

Discussion | The Culture of Community: A Latinx Photo Symposium


Concluding its 30th year anniversary programming, MFA Photography, Video and Related Media will facilitate a discussion lead by current thesis candidates Jordan Cruz (2019) and Carla Maldonado (2019) with special guests Veronica Sanchis Bencomo (photographer, Foto Feminas), Perla de Leon (photographer) and Susanna V. Temkin (curator, El Museo del Barrio). The Culture of Community: a Latinx Photo Symposium exemplifies a community effort, in content as well as execution. Over the past year and a half, through political, social and natural disasters, Jordan Cruz (Bronx, NY) and Carla Maldonado (Rio de Janiero, Brazil) have not only incorporated identity and advocacy in the concepts driving their work, but continuously strive to educate themselves and our academic community on a demographic of under-recognized and unparalleled Latinx cultural producers. Our special guests will discuss issues of representation in academic and cultural institutions, as well as current and future trends with the reclamation and modernization of the photo archive on social media and web-based platforms.

Author Reading | Being Numerous: Essays on Non-Fascist Life


Being Numerous shatters the mainstream consensus on politics, personhood, and truth, and offers in its place a bracing analysis of a perilous world and how we might live in it. Beginning with an interrogation of what it means to fight fascism, Natasha Lennard explores the limits of individual rights, the criminalization of political dissent, the myths of radical sex, and why we may choose to leave room in our lives for ghosts. At once politically committed and philosophically capacious, Being Numerous is a revaluation of the idea that “the personal is political,” and goes on to ask the central question of our time—how can we live a non-fascist life? Natasha Lennard is a contributing writer for the Intercept, and her work has appeared regularly in The New York Times, Nation, Esquire, Vice, Salon, and New Inquiry, among others.

Concert | A Cursed Woman: Traditional Korean Singing


Throughout her career as a traditional Korean singer (“sorikun”), Lee Narae has reflected on and problematized the representation of women in traditional pansori, a form of musical storytelling that developed under the influence of Confucian culture. In exploring this art form, she sheds new light on Byeongangseo-ga—a pansori narrative that is a particularly strong example of patriarchal values—by shifting the perspective to the ill-fated female character, Ong-nyeo, and recreating this work through a variety of artistic styles. Lee Narae combines a wide range of sounds with spoken word and transforms them through music, seamlessly incorporating other musical influences. She thus inherits the tradition of pansori while recharging it with contemporary creative energy.
