Tour | Barcelona: Sagrada Familia - The Church of Antoni Gaudi Live (online)


The Sagrada Familia is one of the most distinctive churches in Europe, and perhaps even the world. Join the tour guide Josep to learn about the genius behind this architectural masterpiece. He will also answer any questions you may have about this iconic building. Why and how did it start? Which tricks did he use to be able to calculate such "impossible" structures 130 years ago? Why 18 towers? When will it be finished? The engaging explanations will be intertwined with the architect's life, family history, and under which circumstances "the architect of god" came to pass away.

Opening Reception | Face to Face: Portraits in Ink


Erika Hibbert’s newest body of work, produced over the past 12 months, offers a compelling view of her extensive series of portraits in ink on waterproof paper. Her subjects range from imagined people, to loved ones, strangers, public figures and revered artists. The artist limited herself to two recurring small and large formats, with a standard composition comprised of a single head floating in an abstract arena of space patterned with textures and lines. Within these tight peripheries, the variety and distinct personality of each portrait is all the more startling. See link for COVID protocols.

The concept of home and all its definitions are explored. What does it mean to be at home in our bodies, our communities and our world as we navigate through these perilous times?

They will spend the evening hearing from artists who addressed how fallow buildings could be re-purposed for creatives in desperate need of affordable living spaces; an accomplished nonprofit leader creating space through community design; an artist-activist working with indigenous communities to save the Amazon utilizing performance art; and high school students expressing themselves about the ever-present threat of climate change through the art of animation.

Author Reading | The How: Notes on the Great Work of Meeting Yourself (online)


An exploration of how we can meet our truest selves, the ones we’ve always been meant to become. Author Yrsa Daley-Ward encourages readers to begin, as she puts it, the great work of meeting ourselves. This isn’t the self we’ve built up in response to our surroundings, or the self we manufacture to please the people around us, but instead, our most intimate self, the one we visit in dreams, the one that calls to us from a glimmering future. With a mix of short lyrical musings and her signature stunning poetry, Yrsa gently takes readers by the hand, encouraging them to join her as she explores how we can remove our filters, and see and feel more of who we really are behind the preconceived notions of propriety and manners we’ve accumulated with age. With a beautiful design and intriguing meditations, The How can be used to start conversations, to prompt writing, to delve deeper–whether you’re solo, or with friends, on your feet or writing from the solace of home.

Open Studios | Open Studios


Artist Alex Tatarsky is in residence to create a laboratory for performance research, thinking through the opportunity of a residency as a home—a “residence”—to revisit latent ideas and cultivate unhinged processes. Within the framework of an institution, a context that can often inhibit individual values and experimentation, Tatarsky will test different modes of thinking and making. Research methods will include rage at landlords, trash as divination, and more. Visitors will be invited into the space of Tatarsky’s research. Tatarsky will offer peeks into various works-in-process, careening in-between tight scripted sequences and wildly improvised experiments.

Discussion | The Art of the Short Story (online)


Jocelyn Nicole Johnson brings “a voice that is vital and unlike anything else you’ve known before” (Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah) to her stunning debut collection of short stories: My Monticello. In six captivating stories centered around Charlottesville, Virginia, Johnson explores burdened inheritances and extraordinary pursuits of belonging, and bears witness to this country’s fraught legacies. Award-winning short story writer Deesha Philiaw, whose short story collection, The Secret Lives of Church Ladies, depicts generations of Black women navigating love, sex, death, family, and faith through the sanctuary and structures of the church, joins Johnson in conversation. The two writers will discuss the craft of the short story and their use of the form to interrogate urgent and interwoven questions about the complexity of personal identity, the impacts of systemic racism, and the past, present, and future of America and beyond.

Book Discussion | American Comics: A History (online)


In the midst of a zeitgeist saturated with media derived from comics, Jeremy Dauber “brilliantly excavates the story of this art form—warts and all—from its origins right up to the twenty-first century, and strikes cartoon gold” (Peter Kuper). Dauber concentrates not only on the epic figures and mythic origins of the comics we know and love, but also on those stories and people pushed to the margins, creating a rich chronicle of the last 150 years of American history through the lens of its comics strips, political cartoons, superheroes, graphic novels, and more. Joined in conversation by Abraham Riesman, journalist and author of True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee,
