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.

It will explore the different, novel ways that Ukrainian literature, film, music, and visual art have attempted to perceive, interpret, and express war in the country. Among the questions that will be treated at the conference are: How has this culture changed as the war has endured? How have language, memory and displacement been treated by this culture? How has this culture been disseminated in Ukraine and beyond its borders? How does this culture reflect the identity of today’s Ukraine?

Classical Music | Beethoven's String Quartet No. 13


Ludwig van Beethoven's favorite book was C.C. Sturm's Reflections On the Works of God, and His Providence Throughout All Nature, an almanac of daily essays on natural and scientific wonders. His String Quartet No. 13 with "Grosse Fuge" explores an equally wondrous variety of musical worlds. The New York Classical Players perform this late period masterwork, preceded by recitations from the Library's rare 19th century copy of Beethoven's favorite book.

Poetry Reading | Selected Readings of The Book of Songs


Dated from the 12th century to the 7th century B. C., The Book of Songs is the fountainhead of Chinese literature, and the oldest collection of poetry in world literature. It is an anthology of 305 poems edited by Confucius (551-479 B. C.). The collection remained a required reading for the literati for more than 2,000 years in China, and not until the turn of the 20th century did it cease to be read as scripture and begin to be appreciated as a collection of poetic compositions. Though straightforward and natural in style, typical of ancient literature in terms of the immediacy of imagery and pervasive musical quality, The Book of Songs is by no means simple in its modes of expression. The poems are rich in metaphors and similes, both indirect and direct, as well as narrative display. At this lecture, Ben Wang, Senior Lecturer and the Co-Chair of the Renwen Society, will select four of the best poems and offer an in-depth analysis.

Performance | A Famine of Hearing: Performance Art


Sarah Zapata invites artists Amelia Bande, Stephanie Acosta, and Camille Hoffman to activate A Famine of Hearing (her installation of handwoven, hand-tufted, and sewn textiles amassing as a textured, excess-relishing fantasy of queered tradition) with their varied practices. As viewers exist in, move through, and interact with Zapata’s work in an un-choreographed manner, artists whose work is largely movement-based will provide contrasting deliberation.

Opening Reception | The Tenant: Minimal Ceramic Sculptures


In Roman Polanski’s film The Tenant, a man moves into an apartment previously inhabited by a witch, and finds a tooth buried in the wall. She eventually begins to enter his psyche, transforming his identity until he begins to wear her clothing and her tormented persona. Polanski, removing the fang buried in the wall’s interior, unlocks the wilderness, teeming with its illogical constructions and desires, and brings it into his home. For her first solo exhibition in New York City, sculptor Priscilla Fusco presents an arrangement of ceramic objects which suggest coral-like living creatures or the diatomaceous sedimentary remnants of their bodies. Many of the individual pieces can be fitted to the human hand or wrist so that the wearer might enter the imagined natural world from which the forms originate, leaving behind intellectual rigor and and other human controls imparted upon the non-human. Priscilla Fusco creates minimal sculptures in clay and other materials, which seek to channel the complexity of organisms and human mythologies in order to lower humanities awkward place in the natural order. Her recent work in ceramics has focused on concepts of Arthurian folktales, wherein she designs pieces that seemingly have grown their own forms, dagger and stone-like shapes, enthroned in chairs. She also has used a variety of natural found materials in her sculptural installations, which also may include sound and performance.
