Fair | October 7th, 06:29AM: An Immersive Exhibition on Nova Music Festival Massacre


To celebrate the end of his two years of service as a medic in the Israel Defense Forces' paratrooper division, Tomer Meir joined 13 of his friends at the Nova Musica Festival on the weekend of October 6 in Re'im in southern Israel. It was his first ever music festival. "It was the best moments of my life. I can't explain the state we were in," the 21-year-old told the New York Jewish Week. "It was pure love -- people dancing, laughing, smiling. All the good stuff that we're living for." Until 6:29 a.m. on Saturday morning. The red alerts, the rockets and the running. "The music stopped. The rockets started. We started running for our lives," Meir said. Meir is a survivor of the Nova Music Festival Massacre, where Hamas militants killed 364 festival-goers and took at least 40 hotstages on the morning of Oct. 7. Six months after the attack, Meir is in New York sharing his story as part of an interactive exhibit about that day, which he says is helping him heal. The Nova Musical Festival exhibition, titled October 7th, 06:29AM, is an immersive step into what it was like to be at the festival when it was attacked. Screens show clips from the attack on Nova are displayed next to personal and camping items taken from the festival recreating the festival layout. The exhibit, which debuted in Tel Aviv for 10 weeks in December, was created by Israeli designers and cultural producers, many of whom were producers with the Nova Music Festival itself. It was brought to New York with the help of Scooter Braun, the Jewish-American music producer and philanthropist. The exhibit recreates the visuals and sounds of the Nova Music Festival massacre. But the New York version is in some ways "more intense," according to Yael Finkelstein, a volunteer who collected items from the Nova site and helped set up both the Tel Aviv and New York exhibit. New elements at the New York exhibit include dozens of video testimonies from survivors, Zaka volunteers and family members, as well as graphic raw footage taken on Oct. 7 from both festival-goers and Hamas militants. In addition, survivors of the massacre such as Meir and Sassi will be at the exhibit every day to share their stories and answer questions. Their goal, Meir said, is to show New Yorkers that the horror they experienced could happen to anyone.

Book Discussion | Luncheons on the Grass: Reimagining Manet's Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe


Thirty-five contemporary artists create their own version of Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe. Édouard Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe (1863) is generally cited as the first modern painting. The entry slide in art history lectures about modernism, the work remains among the “most audacious painting[s] ever seen in France,” as Ross King described it in The Judgement of Paris (2006). As Manet did with Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, the most provocative painters today collapse the historical and the contemporary onto one plane. Jeffrey Deitch invited a group of these influential artists to create their own versions, combined here with historical responses to Manet’s painting. The slim volume features these often biting and satirical works alongside essays discussing Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe’s enduring influence on contemporary figurative painting.

Opening Reception | Tomm El–Saieh and Diego Singh: Flaming Mirror


A few years ago, seemingly out of nowhere, objects like café chairs and bike saddles suddenly burst into flames in the streets near a London high-rise. It was the “Walkie Talkie” building’s concave, mirrored façade reflecting the sun so intensely, even on cloudy days, that it created extremely powerful rays of heat. Acting like a burning mirror, the building’s surface concentrated light into the more palpable element of fire. The intangible optical started to forcefully affect the tactile environment. The title of Tomm El-Saieh’s and Diego Singh’s two-person exhibition evokes an image similar to this burning mirror effect. Five paintings by each artist, all developed over the last two years, face each other. The work’s rhythmic and chromatic surfaces appear to bounce off each other, like sounding boards or infinity mirrors exposed to their echoes and resonances, with the viewer located in the space between.

Lecture | Imperia Cognati in Literary and Legal History (online)


Cognati's impact on early 16th century Roman culture deserves a closer look. Through her role as poet, performer, and confidante of the intelligentsia, she influenced some of the greatest artists and intellectuals of Julian Rome. This paper will explore this legacy as well as the opposing explanations for her apparent suicide offered by Bandello's Novelle and her will. At the same time the difficulties she endured as a courtesan point to her reasons for ensuring that her daughter did not follow in her footsteps.

Lecture | The Big in the Small: Shocks of Scale in Howard Hodgkin's Collection of Indian Paintings


Explore Howard Hodgkin’s collection of Indian paintings and the world of kings, palaces, elephants, delicate flowers, and thrilling hunts to understand what shifts of scale were designed to do to the imagination of the viewer. Indian paintings on paper are sometimes called miniatures—some are small, even tiny, and some miniaturize on a grand scale. Learn more about why these paintings fascinated Howard Hodgkin, himself a renowned painter, and the three formal qualities that destabilize scale in Indian "miniatures": frames, color, and movement.

Film | Resistance: They Fought Back (2024): Jewish Opposition to the Nazis


We’ve all heard of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, but most people have no idea about the widespread and prevalent Jewish resistance to Nazi barbarism. Filmed in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Israel, and the U.S., this documentary provides a much-needed corrective to the myth of Jewish passivity. There were uprisings in ghettos large and small, rebellions in death camps, and thousands of Jews fought in the forests. Everywhere in Eastern Europe, Jews waged campaigns of non-violent resistance against the Nazis. Directors: Paula Apsell, Kirk Wolfinger 100 min.

Screening | Screams Before Silence: Documentary on Violence Against Women on October 7th


Despite the testimony of the survivors and medical professionals, the global response to the rapes of Israeli women on and after October 7 was tepid, at best; at worst it was rationalized or denied. Where was the outrage? Last December, Sheryl Sandberg, Founder of Lean In, joined Hillary Clinton and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand at the United Nations to berate the world for refusing to take seriously the scope of the brutal sexual violence against Israeli women. Sandberg then went a step further, working with a team of Israeli filmmakers to expose both the brutality and the silence around it in a powerful and chilling documentary film. Followed by a discussion with: -- Simcha Greiniman, Deputy Commander, Zaka, Israel's leading non-governmental international search & rescue organization -- Professor Ruth Halperin-Kaddari, Founding Director, Rackman Center for the Advancement of the Status of Women, Bar-Ilan University. -- Eytan Schwartz, Co-Producer -- Special virtual appearance by Sheryl Sandberg

Discussion | Voices Rising: What's Next for Asian Americans in the Arts?


The recent surge in anti-Asian hate has been met with an unprecedented celebration of Asian American creators at the highest levels on the national stage. From the success of television shows, documentaries, and films to best-selling books and graphic novels by artists of Asian descent, Asian Americans in the post-pandemic era are drawing themselves and their stories into existence more than ever, using art as a form of representation and resistance.  In honor of Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month and during a pivotal moment for Asian American representation in the arts, The WNET Group's ALL ARTS and Exploring Hate initiatives team up with The Serica Initiative to proudly present "Voices Rising: What's Next for Asian Americans in the Arts?" A panel of celebrated Asian American artists will discuss where we are post-pandemic, how to keep the momentum going, and what’s next for the Asian American artist community, in a live, recorded discussion accompanied by artistic performances.

Dancing | Back to the Beats


 Truly great DJs don't just spin records, they curate an evening of unique sounds and surprise samples that give proof to years (or decades) of crate digging for that special beat or the massive hook that makes everybody in the club stop and ask "Wait... what is THAT?" Few wizards on the wheel of steel have as much experience or as deep a catalog as the Brooklyn DJ and producer J.PERIOD. This renowned creator, who has made a name over the past quarter century with his "audio-biographical" mixes for icons like Nas, Q-Tip, Lauryn Hill and The Roots, opens up his vinyl vault to reveal the artists behind Hip-Hop's all-time great cuts. Beyond James Brown, Parliament, Isaac Hayes, and Chaka Khan, there's a world of more obscure samples waiting to be discovered. Let J.PERIOD be your guide as he squares up on the 1s and 2s for an evening of exploration where secrets will be revealed and improv cyphers are sure to pop off.
