Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Lecture |
Dr. Rachel Fish examines the racialized construction of disability by asking how school racial context matters for racial disparities in disability incidences. Conceptually, she distinguishes between categories of disability associated with higher social status, such as speech/language impairment, from others with lower social status, such as intellectual disability. Dr. Fish finds that sorting into special education services is shaped by the interaction between school racial composition, student race, and the status of the disability category.

A widely influential blueprint designed in 1965 by Canadian architect François Dallegret, “The Environment-Bubble” is brought to life for the first time. Initially envisioned as a flexible, temporary dome that would transform our modes of living, the “Bubble” became a reference point for generations of architects questioning their discipline and seeking a radical dissolution of public and private spaces. Dallegret collaborates with architect François Perrin and choreographer Dimitri Chamblas, to turn the inflatable structure into an active site of intellectual and physical engagement with free daily dance workshops, open to the public.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why.

Director and curator Carol Willis will lead a curator's tour of the museum's exhibition.  The last decade of the twentieth century in New York City was not a simple time. The end of one millennium – a thousand-year marker – and the beginning of the 2000s prompted both anxiety and optimism, reflecting on what to hold onto from the past and how to move into the future.

Did you know: - Since 2010, neuropsychiatric disorders surpassed heart disease and cancer as the leading cause of disability in the USA? - In one year, 2016, overdoses killed more Americans than the Vietnam war? - Every 13 minutes, an American dies by suicide? - Twice as many Americans die of suicide as by homicide? These startling figures alert us to the deadly consequences of unmet mental health needs. Psychiatric-mental health nurses are in every thread of the American fabric – a vibrant, versatile part of the mental health workforce with superhero powers to save lives. This presentation by Dr. Linda Beeber will explore national trends and through the inspiring stories of psychiatric-mental health nurses, imagine the impact of a fully deployed mental health nursing workforce.

This lecture and screening, presented by curators Anu Allas and Maria Arusoo, on Estonian performance takes place within Pavilion without Walls: Estonia, providing a context for Performa commissions and projects from the country through a survey of key moments in the history of performance art taking place there since the late 1960s. The focus of the presentation will be on the relationship between artistic practices and their social contexts, with regard to the broader cultural scene in post-Soviet and post-socialist societies. The discussion will touch upon the emergence of early happenings that took place on the border of art and everyday life in Soviet Estonia, the professionalization and pluralisation of performance art from the early 1990s onward, and the relation between contemporary Estonian performative art and the global cultural environment. The program is followed by a discussion with Anu Allas, program manager and curator at the Kumu, the Art Museum of Estonia, in Tallinn; Maria Arusoo, director of the Center for Contemporary Arts, Estonia (CCA); and Ksenia Nouril, independent art historian and curator based in New York.

Derrick Adams is a New York-based, multidisciplinary artist, working in performance, video, sound, paint, textile- and paper-based collage, and multimedia sculpture. His practice is rooted in deconstructivist philosophies such as the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, and the marriage of complex and improbable forms. Through these techniques, Adams examines the forces of popular culture and the media and their effects on the perception and construction of self-image.

Elaine Mokhtefi is an American writer and painter who worked in the Algerian National Liberation Front’s New York office during the Algerian war for independence. She lived in Algiers from 1962 to 1974 and was one of the organizers of the First Pan-African Cultural Festival of summer 1969. She was instrumental in the establishment of the International Section of the Black Panther Party in Algiers.  She will speak about her own experience and about that of her husband, Mokhtar Mokhtefi, a member of the Signal Corps of the Algerian Liberation Army. Mokhtar Mokhtefi later became a writer of nonfiction on the Arab world and North Africa. He died in New York City in 2015. His recently published memoir J’étais français-musulman is a vibrant, elucidating account of growing up in a ‘village de colonisation’, of schooling in a French lycée, his awakening to the politics of independence, and his commitment to Algeria’s freedom. It is a frank and sometimes controversial account of revolutionary Algeria.

Lecture |
Universal equality is a treasured political concept in France, but recent anxiety over the country’s Muslim minority has led to an emphasis on a new form of universalism, one promoting loyalty to the nation at the expense of all ethnic and religious affiliations. The Right to Difference offers a fresh perspective on the debate by showing that French equality has not always demanded an erasure of differences. Through close and contextualized readings of the way that major novelists, philosophers, filmmakers, and political figures have struggled with the question of integrating Jews into French society, Maurice Samuels draws lessons about how the French have often understood the universal in relation to the particular. By recovering the forgotten history of a more open, pluralistic form of French universalism, Samuels points toward new ways of moving beyond current ethnic and religious dilemmas and argues for a more inclusive view of what constitutes political discourse in France.

To celebrate the release of her new visually arresting book, Wayfinding, artist Teresita Fernández takes the stage with scholar, curator and NYU professor Isolde Brielmaier, and writer Eliot Weinberger to discuss the first complete overview of her multi-faceted body of work. The idea of wayfinding—moving from place to place or even getting lost—is critical to understanding Teresita Fernández’s approach, which incorporates unconventional materials such as graphite, pyrite, dyed thread, polycarbonate tubes, gold, and malachite to explore how we look at and process our surroundings from land to sky, private to public. Organized into six sections—landscape, celestial, terrestrial, subterranean, cinematic, and radiance—which reflect themes recurring in Fernández’s practice, Wayfinding spans her full career.

Renowned historian Marcus Rediker chronicles the transatlantic life and times of a singular man—a Quaker dwarf who demanded the total, unconditional emancipation of all enslaved Africans around the world. Mocked and scorned by his contemporaries, Lay was unflinching in his opposition to slavery, often performing colorful guerrilla theater to shame slave masters, insisting that human bondage violated the fundamental principles of Christianity. He drew on his ideals to create a revolutionary way of life, one that embodied the proclamation “no justice, no peace.”
