Discussion | Energy Perspectives 2019


Recent signposts show diverging paths in energy market developments in terms of economic and demand growth, energy efficiency, cooperation, technology development and geopolitics. Two of the scenarios (Reform and Rivalry) illustrate where the world may move if current path continues. The third, Renewal, illustrates where the world needs to move to achieve the Paris Agreement target of limiting global warming to well below 2°C. Speaker Eirik Wærness, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at Equinor, gives a presentation of Equinor’s Energy Perspectives 2019 report, intended to provide a helicopter perspective on macroeconomics and global energy markets towards 2050. The report analyses relevant trends, impact of climate policies, energy mix consequences and sectorial and regional development across three very different scenarios - Reform, Renewal and Rivalry. Following his presentation, Wærness will join Dr. Melissa C. Lott for a moderated conversation.

Lecture | Vile Bodies: Reassessing Chernukha in Recent Russian Cinema


It has become clear that chernukha was neither a one-time Soviet phenomenon, nor limited exclusively to the Russian context. And yet, the reemergence of chernukha aesthetics in the Russian cinema of the mid-2000s was unexpected, to say the least. Neither a response to a degenerated political discourse (as under late Socialism), nor a reflection of a sanguinary reality (as in the 1990s), this return came during a time of purported stability and prosperity. Speaker Daria Ezerova investigates this new chernukha as a cultural product of a changed relationship between political power and its subject in mid-2000s Russia; a phenomenon she refers to as “the biopolitical turn.”

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.

Performance | Untitled: Painting as Performance Art


Taiwanese artist Yahon Chang will give a new performance work referencing the Bauhaus theme. Chang’s new work sees a set of vertical drapes of semi-transparent silk scrolls juxtaposed with patches of linen canvas on the floor, referencing the linear and geometric forms favored by the Bauhaus school at the turn of the century. The structured form of the set is interrupted by the fluidity of Chang’s vigorous expression of ink and echoes essential theories of the martial art Tai Chi; “overcoming hardness with softness” and “combining hardness with softness.” Chang will be performing for the first time in New York. Exploring painting as performance, Yahon Chang is a contemporary ink painter who combines classical Chinese techniques with gestural Western expressionism in a highly physical manner. Brought up in Taiwan after Japanese colonial rule, his works portray a visual language voicing agony, adversity and acceptance, whilst striving for higher spirituality and peace. Through the act of painting, both cultural and spiritual values are embodied in an intensely personal manner. Harking to Chinese ink-wash traditions, Chang uses a large ink brush to create powerful strokes on canvas or Chinese paper. Viewing art-making as a mind-body discipline, the artist explores the close relationship between traditional calligraphy, philosophy and spirituality through performance.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: The Great Perhaps / 1979-1994


Richard Hughes The Great Perhaps “I go to seek the great perhaps” were the last words of French philosopher François Rabelais. An optimism pervades this sentiment: a sense of wonder in the unknown and the beyond. This forms the core of Richard Hughes’ fourth solo exhibition, a mature and evolutionary turn in his practice and works. Chris Martin 1979-1994 Chris Martin’s exhibition on the gallery’s third floor will present these historic works bookended by the years 1979 and 1994; the majority of them created during this formative 1980s period. An exhibition in March 2019 in Los Angeles featured large paintings from this era; here we will present an intimate display of some key smaller paintings, as well as a number of drawings.

Opening Reception | Shore Leave: High-Color Upholstered Shapes 


Comprised of large modular wall works in the artist's trademark high-color upholstered shapes with minimal accents, the show also features two floor works which combine upholstered protrusions with bedroom furniture. Shore Leave propels Trish Tillman's references ever closer to the body, as what before may have been hinted at now is paraded with pride. The show insinuates a confrontational approach to the viewer, while still wrapped in an elegant façade of impeccable finishes and embellishments such as studs or chains. Each piece combines abstracted forms with understandable physical allusions - for instance, a zipper evokes a movement, a sexual place, a hint of action - to create an overall enigma. The tightly bound vinyl both confronts with surface clarity and keeps overt messages hidden with physical tension, or deflects through minimal elements such as studs, ribbons, or metal tabs.

Opening Reception | The Expectations of Others: Complex Collage Work


A Texas license plate, wood paneling, and a crushed Coors light can are just a few of the objects adorning the figures populating Marcelina Gonzales, Dionis Ortiz, and Estelle Maisonett’s complex collage work. Viewers are forced to project an identity into empty space through the use of social signifiers, rather than relying on rendered physiology or recognizable portraits. Each artist utilizes their practice to question their viewer’s expectations. They question the boundaries of constructed identities and social relationships through embellishing the human figure with potential identity markers. Gonzales, Ortiz, and Maisonett utilize the radical strategies found in contemporary cultural studies (from Feminist-Marxism to Semiotics) to question the ways we encounter and perceive others.

Poetry Reading | The Means of Protection: 14 Poems, Many Voices


Security—it’s something we all seek. But we also know that finding true safety requires taking risks along the way. How does it feel to live this paradox? These poems offer some clues, as does the format of my readings. I invite audience members to perform my work, standing up and reading unknown words out loud to strangers. Will taking the risk bring its own reward? So far, at readings in other cities, audiences have created sturdy sanctuaries using those most powerful of tools: rhythmic words bravely spoken. New Orleanian Amy Clipp shares her poems.

Opening Reception | The Wooster Group: Commemorating Performative and Visual Culture


An exhibition with The Wooster Group, featuring archival material, props, and performance documentation emphasizing the group's significant contribution to both performative and visual culture over the last four and a half decades. The Wooster Group has maintained a home at The Performing Garage at 33 Wooster Street since the mid-1970's, originating within a downtown experimental art scene of cross-disciplinary activity and hybrid forms. Led and directed by Elizabeth LeCompte, who draws on diverse sources including traditional plays, B-movies, stand-up comedy, and autobiographical material, The Wooster Group's work eludes categorization and obvious description. As part of a core of founding members* including Spaulding Gray (1941-2004), Jim Clayburgh, Ron Vawter (1948-1994), Willem Dafoe, Kate Valk, and Peyton Smith, LeCompte's singular vision remains central to the group's identity.

Opening Reception | Time Life: Cult Phenomena


Hernan Bas’ fifth solo exhibition with the gallery will include seven large-scale paintings and one decorative room screen that feature a series of strange and seemingly obscure (or possibly forgotten) moments that have influenced American culture. This body of work illustrates Bas’ innate ability to highlight cult phenomena from the past that offer insight into the political and social concerns of today. Rather than focusing on a singular subject matter, as Bas has done previously, this series spans time periods and themes, providing a unique perspective on American subculture and a contemporary version of History Painting, which traditionally depicts a particular moment within a narrative.

Discussion | Should We Tolerate the Intolerant?


In the increasingly divided political and social landscape that surrounds us today, the idea of tolerance seems to be more relevant than ever. Beyond the acrimonious debates on migration, hate speech, impeachment, or religious symbols in public places, the ideal of tolerance offers the vision of a social order that accommodates diversity while preserving common principles that bind citizens together. But are there limits to tolerance? Are there circumstances when free speech should be curtailed? What should be done when extremist voices threaten the very order tolerance is founded upon? How do social media and digital threats to privacy change the terms of the debate on hate speech and tolerance? What can history teach us about the conditions needed to build a tolerant society? A debate between Denis Lacorne and Bernard Harcourt, moderated by Sheri Berman.

Lecture | The Shadow of Democracy: May Fourth and Global History


This talk argues that China's May Fourth Movement (1919-1925) must be retrieved as an extended politicized moment of promise for mass radical democracy in China and the world. The contemporary retreat of democracy globally demands that we not conceal the times in history when peoples saw their potential futures otherwise: the May Fourth Movement was one such time. If the shadow of democracy in 1919 was a hopeful one, today that shadow is significantly more ominous. This talk attempts to think about why. Speaker Rebecca E. Karl teaches in the History Department at New York University.

Conference | Who Owns the World?: The State of Platform Cooperativism


A conference on building a more inclusive economy, Who Owns the World? The State of Platform Cooperativism is the most international gathering of its kind. This much-needed event summons scholars and founders of platform cooperatives — businesses that use a website, mobile app, or protocol to sell goods or services while relying on democratic decision-making and shared ownership of the platform by workers and users.  Platform cooperativism is not a fleeting idea but an iterative process that unfolds with the support of community groups and anchor organizations such as universities, cooperative banks, and accelerators. Impulses for a democratic digital transformation come from numerous domains, which is why this event presents theoretical reflections, artistic provocations, and insights from on-the-ground workers, owners, and users.  Who Owns the World? convenes one hundred fifty speakers from over thirty countries to meet each other, co-design, and learn about topics such as worker power in the platform economy, antitrust, misogyny and racism in co-ops, ecological sustainability, best practices for cooperation including the allocation of startup funding, the potential of platform co-ops for data trusts, data co-ops, new models for distributed governance, and data sovereignty.

Discussion | Saving Cities: How New York State Reshaped New York City since the 1950s


What do big projects like Battery Park City, the World Trade Center, Riverbank State Park, Times Square redevelopment, the MTA, and Mitchell Lama housing projects all have in common? The crucial, if often overlooked, role played by New York State in planning, financing, developing and managing these massive initiatives. Since the Great Depression, New York State has dramatically increased the scale and scope of its urban activity with the stated goal of counteracting central city economic decline. Three leading urban historians assess the competitions and collaborations of the State and City and debate what has worked, what has not, and why. Join us for a spirited discussion about New York State's wide-ranging role in New York City's housing and urban redevelopment plans since the 1950s. Moderator: Carol Willis, The Skyscraper Museum. Panelists: Lizabeth Cohen, Professor, Harvard University, author of the forthcoming Saving America's Cities: Ed Logue and the Struggle to Renew Urban America in the Suburban Age Lynne Sagalyn, Professor, Columbia University, author of Power at Ground Zero: Politics, Money, and the Rebuilding of Lower Manhattan Nicholas Dagen Bloom, Professor, Hunter College, author of How States Shaped Postwar America: State Government and Urban Power All guests MUST RSVP to programs@skyscraper.org to assure admittance to the event.

Author Reading | Stirrings: How Activist New Yorkers Ignited a Movement for Food Justice


In the last three decades of the twentieth century, government cutbacks, stagnating wages, AIDS, and gentrification pushed ever more people into poverty, and hunger reached levels unseen since the Depression. In response, New Yorkers set the stage for a nationwide food justice movement. Whether organizing school lunch campaigns, establishing food co-ops, or lobbying city officials, citizen-activists made food a political issue, uniting communities across lines of difference. The charismatic, usually female leaders of these efforts were often products of earlier movements: American communism, civil rights activism, feminism, even Eastern mysticism. Situating food justice within these rich lineages, Lana Dee Povitz demonstrates how grassroots activism continued to thrive, even as it was transformed by unrelenting erosion of the country's already fragile social safety net.

He had a significant career as a merchant seaman and labor organizer before appearing on the Beat scene in San Francisco in 1958. His books include Solitudes Crowded with Loneliness (New Directions, 1965), Golden Sardine (City Lights, 1967), and The Ancient Rain (New Directions, 1981), as well as two broadsides from City Lights, Second April (1958) and Does the Secret Mind Whisper (1959).

Jazz | French Jazz with a Rock’n Roll Twist


The unique sound and style of Cécile Nordegg & Band combine Edith Piaf and Frank Zappa in celebration of French jazz with a rock’n roll-twist. French jazz is not that easy to find and a new experience for many. But for both newcomers and those already soaked in the boozy musical brew, there is a wealth to savor. There are as many rock riffs as there are torch songs, there are glimpses into cabaret resurrected from a bygone age, and there is a contemporary experience that relates to this day and age. With a casual cover of Frank Zappa’s notorious “Bobby Brown” thrown in for good measure (sung in honeyed French tones, naturally), plus standards by Piaf and Brel, all contributing to Cécile Nordegg & Band’s own original songs and compositions, this is an experience not to be missed. Their latest release ‘Jazz Proclamation Vol.1 & 2 is moving, humorous, and unlike any jazz you’ve heard.

Play | Hoppla, We’re Alive!: A Landmark of Weimar and Early Epic Theater


Hoppla, We're Alive! is one of the landmarks of Weimar and early Epic Theater—the opening production of the Piscatorbühne in September of 1927 and a critical success on the scale of Brecht and Weill’s Threepenny Opera. A thrilling indictment of the politico-military-industrial corrupting democracy, Toller’s play remains frighteningly relevant today. Toller’s dissection of political conspiracies, failed revolution, feminist emancipation and class solidarity suggests one answer: it is only in the constant struggle against power that we are alive. This adaptation of the Piscator collective’s original production constitutes the work’s US premiere.
