Lecture | The Return of the Native: Right-Wing Discouses in Europe


The right-wing discourses surrounding identity in Europe’s present-day politics and public spheres are often academically analysed in terms of populism, Islamophobia and racism. While acknowledging those concepts’ validity, Duyvendak will show that in the European context populism, Islamophobia and racism are actually all subtypes of nativism: religious nativism, problematizing Islam and Muslims; populist nativism, problematizing ‘native’ elites; and racial nativism problematizing black anti-racism. Duyvendak will discuss whether Islamophobia, anti-black racism and populism are as nativist in the US as they are in Europe. Speaker Jan Willem Duyvendak is director of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, Distinguished Research Professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam and he chairs the Council for European Studies.

Opening Reception | Andro Wekua: The Liminal Space Between Objectivity and Subjectivity


An exhibition of new work by Andro Wekua. Known for the multidisciplinary nature of his practice, Wekua has created a series of paintings and sculptures that continue his career-long exploration of the liminal space between objectivity and subjective interpretation. In works that are redolent with the artifacts of an ambiguous and undefined history, Wekua presents a series of tableaux that reveal themselves to us as emotionally familiar in spite of the artist's gestures of obfuscation and his conscious disavowal of the formal tropes of narrative.

On a clear day in the Caribbean, a propeller plane with the 32-year-old seismologist Nelly on board suddenly disappears from the radar.

Opening Reception | SIERRA/costa: Mountains and Shore


SIERRA/costa invites visual artists to explore the differences between the sierra heights and the coastal shore through representations or visual metaphors for great contrast. Ecuador boasts deeply rooted cultures both in the sierra of Quito and Cuenca as well as in the Guayaquil coast with the nearby Galapagos Islands.  And even though as an Island Puerto Rico is apparently all coast line, it also has mountains. Both environments provide exceptional sights. ?
