Tour | 'Visibilizing' (Im)Mobility in Lower Mannahatta


An experiential walk that will reveal the hidden, invisible, and illegible boundaries that guide and shape our involvement with urban life. What parts of the city are open or available to you—socially and materially/geographically—and via what pathways? At what scale do you experience and conceptualize the city? How does your experience of city change depending on your perspective—your race, immigration status, profession, and historical moment? The city is an ecosystem where the built and natural environments merge. As such, this event will examine places where the boundary between the built and the natural is negotiated. This will explore how we as humans have shaped the natural environment, how we protect it—particularly against climate change—and how institutions and governments use both built and natural environments to create social boundaries.

Opening Reception | Russian Émigré Artists in New York -- The Real Thing


Many Russian émigré artists have invigorated the New York art scene over the past three decades. The '90s was a particularly vibrant decade for integration and the search for relevance in the realm of contemporary art and critical discourse, areas that had been lacking in Russia during the post-Soviet transition. This exhibition aims to revitalize the history of Russian artists in New York during the 1990s and early 2000s. The exhibit and related publication will display artwork, photos, and documents from the extensive archive of the Russian American Cultural Center. Exhibited artists will include Irina Nakhova, Leonid Lerman, Grisha Bruskin, Vitaly Komar and Aleksandr Melamid, Alexander Kosolapov, Leonid Sokov, Ilia Kabakov, Mikhail Roginsky, Oskar Rabin, George Tsypin, Yona Verwer, Julia Nitsberg, and Leonid Lubianitsky.

Lecture | Is Transnationalism Good for Democracy? Palestinian-American Youth on Rights, Citizenship, and Justice


Drawing on longitudinal ethnographic work with Palestinian-American youth, Professor Abu El-Haj explores the creative, flexible practices of transnational “citizenship” that develop from conditions of migration, mobility, and ambiguity. This portrait of flexibility, creativity, and change challenges public discourses that stubbornly cling to ideas of transnational affiliations as dangerous to democracy. Professor Abu El-Haj argues, instead, that youth develop a politics of justice and inclusion to fight inequality and oppression both within and across the artificial borders of nation-states.

Featuring: Karah Preiss, co-founder of online reading platform Belletrist  Wayne Koestenbaum, cultural critic and author Ruth Franklin, author of Shirley Jackson, A Rather Haunted Life John Williams, Daily Books editor and staff writer at The New York Times Writer Lucia Berlin (1936-2004) is widely considered one of the best American prose stylists of her time.

Poetry Reading | Near/Miss: Sharp Edges and Subtle Intimacies


Praised in recent years as a “calculating, improvisatory, essential poet” by The New York Times, and as “the foremost poet-critic of our time” by Craig Dworkin, Charles Bernstein is a leading voice in American poetry. Bernstein’s first poetry collection in five years is the apotheosis of his late style, thick with off-center rhythms, hilarious riffs, and verbal extravagance. Grounded in a politics of multiplicity and dissent, and replete with both sharp edges and subtle intimacies, Near/Miss is full of close encounters of every kind.
