Opening Reception | Let Me Hold Your Breath: Photos by Tal Gilboa and Elizabeth Stehl Kleberg


Tal Gilboa and Elizabeth (Liz) Stehl Kleberg collage lens-based media and sculpt images digitally. The presence of the video sculpture mimics the gaps in breath, the rhythm of pulse, and cyclical nature of the body. When immersed in the room with them, the visuals and audio loop parallel bodily patterns. The representation of the female body is particularly vital, as the projections stand in as the narratorial voice. The projected images, she, become fragmented through the optical play of reflections.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: In-Sight-Out / Vulvacular


In-Sight-Out presents Christine Mottau's new body of abstract oil paintings, made in 2016 and 2017, based on chakra meditation theory. The show represents a turn inward after her previous exhibition of landscape paintings. Ranging in size from small (8"x10") to monumental (6'x8'), Mottau's abstractions are a highly personal exploration of the imagery she envisioned while practicing meditation. The paintings record a visual expression of the transportive experience-a balancing of the physical, emotional and spiritual selves. Vulvacular celebrates the power and beauty of the vulva by 19 artists working in ceramics, drawing, fiber and fabric, painting, wood and collage. The artworks are passionate and playful, sexy and defiant, poignant and spiritual.

Discussion | A History of Echoes-Part 2: Sound of Trans Freedom


Since 1994, Ultra-red have been developing sound-based methodologies for collective reflection and analysis of lived experience. These sound investigations employ instructions, or protocols for collective listening that guide participants through listening together to audio recordings from everyday life places, events, and speech. This experience of listening together serves as a catalyst for sharing, discussing and analyzing what people hear in the recordings themselves and in the ways others listen. Ultra-red will present on different aspects of its work and methods in two different sessions. The second session will describe Vogue’ology, a collaboration between the Arbert Santana Ballroom Freedom and Free School, which includes the Ballroom Archive and Oral History Project, and Ultra-red. Vogue’ology is an initiative by and for members of New York’s House and Ballroom Scene, a creative collective and intentional kinship system established by LGBTQ individuals of color. The decision to archive the community’s histories builds on its tradition of intergenerational learning.

Dance Performance | Battery Dance: Combating Islamophobia through Dance and Spoken Word


Pushing the boundaries of the art form which has propelled it into its fourth decade, Battery Dance memorializes Adel Euro, a brilliant young dancer from Iraq whose life was tragically cut short when he was killed by a suicide bomb on July 3, 2016. In championing his legacy, Battery Dance Company hopes to inspire American audiences to challenge their preconceived notions of Muslims and embrace our common humanity. Combating Islamophobia through Dance and Spoken Word takes the form of storytelling through the choreography and performance of dancer Hussein Smko, the first Adel Euro Fellow, and spoken memoirs of a boyhood in Baghdad by journalist Riyadh Mohammed. Both are Iraqi Muslims relocated to the U.S. The program is intended to introduce American audiences to Middle Eastern Muslims who challenge the association between Islam and violent extremism.

Discussion | Air This Pain and Alter It: What Can Poetry Do?


In an interview for Black Women Writers at Work, Audre Lorde spoke of her mother’s special relationship to language, “Words had an energy and power, and I came to respect that power early . . . . If we feel deeply, and we encourage ourselves and others to feel deeply, we will find the germ of our answers to bring about change…. If I cannot air this pain and alter it, I will surely die of it.” The Poetry Society of America’s 2017/2018 National Series will address in the voices of a wide range of contemporary poets and writers the unique power of writing to inspire courage, affect change, and speak to the moment, however challenging it is. Featured writers include Eduardo Corral, Nick Flynn, Kimiko Hahn, Bob Hicok, Jane Hirshfield, Tyehimba Jess, Gregory Pardlo, Francine Prose, and Jacqueline Woodson.

Discussion | Singapore, Myth, and Memory


Last year Singapore celebrated it’s 50th birthday and its sparkling status as the “Switzerland of the East, but stories of rebellion and subversion remain just below the surface. In Jeremy Tiang’s thrilling debut novel, State of Emergency, an explosion in an office building in Singapore in 1965 unravels an epic story of a family caught up the spontaneous turns of history. Tiang, “one of Singapore’s finest living novelists,” according to The Straits Times, will be in conversation with historian and fiction writer Yu-Mei Balasingamchow about the nearly forgotten leftist movements that rocked Singapore and Malaysia, and remain suppressed in official narratives.

During his years in America (1892-1895) as the Director on the National Conservatory in America, Antonin Dvorak was a major force in developing the American school of composers.
