Conference | China’s Long 1980s: A Re-Evaluation


Convening amidst a spate of state-led celebrations commemorating four decades since the start of the Reform and Opening and the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic, this workshop critically explores the experiences and legacies of the “long 1980s” (1978-1992). This “long decade” is perhaps most often remembered for its state-led turn from central planning to a market approach to economic and social governance and the increasing integration of China into the world economy. These years also witnessed the emergence of a “cultural fever” characterized by artistic experimentations with media old and new at all levels of society. Existing scholarship on the 1980s has fruitfully examined economic, political, material and cultural arenas of development. What has been lacking, however, are studies exploring interconnectedness of these arenas at both conceptual and practical levels.

Conference | Political Origins of Health Inequities: Technology in the Digital Age


Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence have the potential to address and even transform global health problems. These innovations are not neutral, however; their social impacts raise a number of challenges including reproducing and deepening inequalities.  Whether technological innovations produce opportunities or constraints depends fundamentally on what technology is developed, for whom, by whom, and for what purposes. This conference seeks to examine the global governance challenges to harnessing digital innovation for the public good, in order to avoid harmful consequences and combat the political origins of health inequity.

Lecture | Data for Good: Robotics to Characterize, Retrain, and Restore Human Movements


Neural disorders and old age limit the ability of humans to perform activities of daily living. Robotics can be used to probe the human neuromuscular system and create new pathways to characterize, relearn, or restore functional movements. Dr. Sunil Agrawal’s group has designed innovative technologies and robots for this purpose. These technologies have been tested on subjects in a variety of studies to understand the human cognitive and neuro-muscular response.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

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.

Opening Reception | Dan Walsh: The Joy of Printmaking


Known for his roots in minimalist painting from the 1960s and 1970s, Dan Walsh constructs his work from self-imposed rules and procedures. His images are perceivably relaxed, but subtle nuances ask the viewer to evaluate their logic. Enfin, a new relief edition of 20 based on his iconic painting of the same title, celebrates the artist’s joy and labor within the medium of printmaking. The making of this work was the self-imposed challenge, to find a way to recreate a complex painting with a completely new approach. Colors reveal themselves in surprising areas, merging depth with simplicity.
