Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Classical Music | Bach Plus One Concert


The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor. This season, Bach at One evolves into Bach + One: featuring one Bach cantata each week paired with a complementary work from composers early to modern. Trinity’s presentation of Bach’s entire monumental output of vocal sacred music has been praised by The New York Times for its “dramatic vigor.” Program Johann Sebastian Bach Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen, BWV 11 Georg Philipp Telemann Concerto in D for 3 Trumpets, Timpani and Strings, TWV 54:D4 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

Opening Reception | Chaste as Ice, Pure as Snow: Fantastic Dreamscapes


An exhibition of new paintings by Satoshi Kojima. Both surreal and bizarrely familiar, Kojima's transportive paintings are fantastic dreamscapes. Rendered in dusty pastel hues with the softest of brushstrokes, these works boast a delicate ethereality that almost - but not entirely - conceals the painter's hand. While their geometric composition achieves a Futurist and Op-Art sensibility, Kojima's paintings simultaneously look inward towards a hazy, alien narrative, homesick for another world. They seek introspection beneath the façade of nightlife and digital clamor and grapple with themes of identity, sexuality, desire, and displacement. Interstitial and interplanetary, Kojima's paintings balance a dollop of kink and mischief with a disquieting sense of malaise.

Author Reading | Geopolitics of Contemporary Art: Art as a Tool for Influence


French gallerist Nathalie Obadia, along with Benjamin Sutton, editor of Art Market News at Artsy, hold a discussion Obadia’s newly published book, which analyzes the link between visual arts and geopolitics in today’s world. The book posits that Le Louvre in Abu Dhabi, Art Basel in Miami, and Jeff Koons’ tulips in Paris are all manifestations of contemporary art as a tool for influence. Art is not only a marker of power, it argues; it also measures a country’s degree of autonomy, its attractiveness, and its place in the world.

Discussion | Strike Wave: Organized Labor in the 21st-Century Workplace


The American labor movement is experiencing an exciting revival. Low wages, exploitative practices, poor conditions, and lack of support are motivating workers to unionize and, when necessary, to strike. Organizing and unionizing are sweeping through both new and traditional workplaces, including online media, magazines, newsrooms, retail stores, and diners. At this event, folks involved in the contemporary labor movement will discuss recent successful rebellions across the country—from teachers to graduate students, museum staff to fast-food workers—the causes for this wave of strikes, how social media interacts with unionizing and strike efforts, and what lessons can be taken for workers, organizers, and activists. With: -- Eric Blanc, writer for Jacobin and author of Red State Revolt: The Teachers’ Strike Wave and Working-Class Politics -- Kim Kelly, writer, labor activist, columnist for Teen Vogue’s “No Class” and council member of the Writers Guild of America East -- Bianca Cunningham, writer and organizer at Labor Notes, co-chair of NYC DSA, and former Communications Workers District 1 -- LeNair Xavier, worker and organizer at The Pleasure Chest, represented by RWDSU.

Author Reading | Mindfulness and Its Discontents: Education, Self, and Social Transformation


Mindfulness, a way to alleviate suffering by realizing the impermanence of the self and our interdependence with others, has been severed from its Buddhist roots. In the late-stage-capitalist, neoliberal, solipsistic West, it becomes McMindfulness, a practice that instead shores up the privatized self, and is corporatized and repackaged as a strategy to cope with our stressful society through an emphasis on self-responsibility and self-promotion. Rather than a way to promote human development and social justice, McMindfulness covertly reinforces neoliberalism and capitalism, the very self-promoting systems that worsen our suffering.
