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.

Color Adjustment analyzes the evolution of television's earlier, unflattering portrayal of blacks from 1948 until 1988, when they are depicted as prosperous and as having achieved the American dream, a portrayal that is inconsistent with reality. Black actors Esther Rolle, Diahann Carroll, Denise Nicholas, and Tim Reid and Hollywood producers Norman Lear, Steve Bochco, and David Wolper reveal the behind-the-scenes story of how prime time was "integrated."

For those who are not able to travel to Tibet to visit the Lukhang temple, now you can see Romio Shrestha's contemporary expressions of these extraordinary paintings, to scale, in New York for the first time. Originally the tantric practices illustrated in these paintings were revealed only after years of study and meditation under a qualified teacher. That said, they remain relevant to the modern sensibility, as these paintings ultimately mirror our innermost spiritual freedom to attain enlightenment.

Opening Reception | Intruder: An Installation of New Paintings


An installation of new paintings by Norwegian painter Kenneth Blom. Vast landscapes, architectural framework, and human isolation loom large in Blom’s oeuvre. Shuffling these ingredients masterfully, he establishes an atmosphere that captures a key aspect of contemporary life: a sense of forlornness as humanity continues to stray away from nature. In contrast to the ideal put forth by the 19th Century Romantic movement, namely the immersion of the figure in a glorious natural environment, Blom focuses on the opposite. Frequently encapsulated and therefore defined by manmade structures, his figures manifest as intruders.

In December 1957, the wife of a citrus baron is raped. The town sheriff, the infamous racist Willis McCall, quickly rounds up his suspects.

Author Reading | Omnicide: Mania, Fatality, and the Future-In-Delirium


Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh's book is a fragmentary catalogue of the thousand-and-one varieties of manic disposition (augomania, dromomania, catoptromania, colossomania…). Omnicide enters the chaotic imaginations of the most significant poetic talents of the Middle East in order to instigate a new discourse on obsession, entrancement, excess, and delirium. Placing their voices into direct conversation, Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh excavates an elaborate network of subterranean ideas and interpretive chambers, byways and burrows by which mania communicates with fatality.

Play | Much Ado About Nothing: Shakespeare's Comedy of Romantic Retribution and Miscommunication


Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (American Son, A Raisin in the Sun) directs a bold new take on Shakespeare’s cherished comedy of romantic retribution and miscommunication. In this modern production, find the community of Messina celebrating a break from an ongoing war. But not all is peaceful amid the revelry, as old rivals engage in a battle of wits, unexpected foes plot revenge, and young lovers are caught in a tumultuous courtship – until love proves the ultimate trickster, and undoes them all.
