Festival | Día de Muertos Celebration


A celebration of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican tradition of pre-Hispanic origin that celebrates the memory and presence of the deceased. Altar decor and community activities presented by artist Paulina Mendoza Valdez. Performances include: La Danza de los Viejitos (Dance of the Little Old Men), from the Purépecha people in Michoacán, Mexico. This dance form originated in pre-Hispanic times as an offering to Tata Huriata (Grandfather Sun) and to the four Purépecha regions, as well as the four seasons and the four elements. Later, the dance became a critique and protest against colonization by Spain, while also celebrating the resilience and strength of the Purépecha communities. Presented by Calpulli Mexican Dance Company. Activities include: Decorate your own sugar skull (Calaverita de Azucar) to take home or to place on the altar.

Lecture | Ivan Turgenev, Marko Vovchok and Pierre-Jules Hetzel: Literary and Editorial Strategies (online)


This talk explores the literary and editorial strategies of three authors: the Russian writer Ivan Turgenev (1819-1883), the Russian and Ukrainian writer Marko Vovchok (Maria Markovich, 1833-1907) and the French publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel (1814-1886), who wrote under the pseudonym P.-J. Stahl. Both Vovchok and Turgenev were published by Hetzel in France. In turn, they translated and published in Russia the works of his publishing house as well as Hetzel's own writings. Their three-way friendship, affectionate and professional, produced a significant corpus of new books.

Talk | Midnight Politics: The Legend of Shaul Wahl, a Jew Who Became King of Poland for One Night


In 2014, during an official visit to Poland, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin shared a personal anecdote. According to an 18th-century family tradition, one of his ancestors was elected King of Poland for one night. In other words, the head of the State of Israel was also a claimant to the Polish throne. How can we make sense of this statement? Drawing on archival research as well as Eastern European political thought, Professor Dynes will reflect on the meaning of this legend and its complex political imaginaries in its historical and contemporary contexts. Speaker Ofer Dynes is Leonard Kaye Assistant Professor of Hebrew and Comparative Literature at the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures.

Discussion | A Healthcare System in Crisis: How Public Health Emergencies in Puerto Rico Exposed a Systemic Disaster (in-person and online)


The Puerto Rico healthcare system has been challenged in recent years by an increasing frequency and intensity of disasters (e.g., hurricanes, earthquakes, power outages, droughts, infectious disease outbreaks). While these events have affected island-wide population health, they have further exposed frailties of the island’s healthcare infrastructure, including poor system preparedness, recovery, and resilience, an exodus of health providers to the US mainland, and issues with health insurance coverage and reimbursements. Dr. Alexandra Rivera-González leads a discussion about how these emergencies have revealed an underlying systemic disaster: the U.S.’s extended neglect of Puerto Rico. As a U.S. territory, Puerto Rico has minimal autonomy over local affairs – all else falls under federal jurisdiction, including disaster response and recovery and funding for Medicaid and Medicare. This presentation will describe current health policy dilemmas in Puerto Rico and will characterize inequities across the following domains: (1) coverage and reimbursement, (2) providers, (3) facilities, and (4) individual factors. Ongoing public health research in Puerto Rico and current challenges will also be discussed.

Lecture | Fire Is Good to Think With: Protest as a Mode of Theorizing


The present call to decolonize epistemic and institutional practices runs deep through the humanities and social sciences. In South Africa, it was accompanied by massive student protests, in some cases leading to burning campuses. These protests sparked many controversies about the role of education, appropriate forms of critique, and the very means of debate. In this lecture, Katharina Schramm pays close attention to different knowledge practices that have emerged in these highly contested spaces. How can we theorize from here? Can we begin to think about fire in generative terms?

Book Discussion | Eye Dreaming: Photographs by Anthony Barboza


This richly illustrated book is the first monograph to explore the prolific career of the celebrated photographer Anthony Barboza. Anthony Barboza (b. 1944) is a celebrated artist and writer who has made thousands of photographs in the studio and on the street since 1963. A member of the Kamoinge collective of photographers in New York, Barboza is largely self-taught and has an inimitable, highly intuitive vision that he refers to as "eye dreaming," or "a state of mind that's almost like meditation." Throughout the years he has made countless commercial images, including celebrity portraits, advertisements, and album covers. His personal photographic projects illuminate his deep investment in the art and concerns of Black communities, not only in the United States but also around the globe. This lavishly illustrated volume follows Barboza's prolific career from his youth in New Bedford, Massachusetts, to his formative years in New York in the 1960s, to the present day. An introduction by renowned author and critic Hilton Als underscores Barboza's importance and impact. An essay by curator Aaron Bryant contextualizes Barboza's life and career as they map against major civil rights events in the United States. In an intimate interview between the artist and curator Mazie M. Harris, Barboza offers astute, humorous, and intimate musings on his long career, foundational influences, and artistic legacy. This monograph, the first on the artist, will appeal to aficionados of photography and Black art and culture.

Opening Reception | Frank Moore: Five Paintings


A selection of exceptional works by the late painter Frank Moore (1953–2002) drawn from an important private European collection. Made in the artist’s downtown New York studio and in his upstate home in Deposit, New York, these jewel-like pictures are among the best known that Moore created in his brief lifetime and among the most documented—portraying entire ecosystems within their inventive frames, which serve to extend the artwork’s confines beyond the support.

Opening Reception | Hitoshi Fugo: Watchers


Hitoshi Fugo’s photography not only captures his subjects with surrounding realities but also inspires a new set of perspectives through his conceptual approach. This exhibition features the artist’s lesser-known color series entitled Watchers consisting of a series of head-and-shoulder portraits of an anonymous person watching a scenic view from a distance. Viewed from behind, Fugo’s camera focuses on the person’s back, leaving the scenery blurry and abstract. Between 1994 and 2008, Fugo photographed these portraits in universally attractive sceneries such as a waterfall and a cityscape. The former were shot in Kegon Falls in Japan and Niagara Falls in Canada in the same year (1994) and the latter at the Empire State Building in New York City (2006) and Roppongi Hills (2008) in Tokyo. These portraits are presented in pairs in single frames: Kegon vis a vis Niagara; Roppongi Hills vis a vis the Empire State Building). These pairs seem to be random combinations but similar in gender and age. These contrasts, apparent or nuanced, urge the viewer to further engage in comparisons and the rear-view portraitures allow the viewer to enter into the spiritual realms of the watchers surrounded by the spectacle.

Book Discussion | On The Rooftop, by Margaret Wilkerson Sexton (In Person Online)


Discuss Margaret Wilkerson Sexton newest novel On the Rooftop, the story of a mother whose dream of musical stardom for her three daughters collides with the daughters' ambitions for their own lives -- set against the backdrop of gentrifying 1950s San Francisco. At home they are just sisters, but on stage, they are The Salvations. Ruth, Esther, and Chloe have been singing and dancing in harmony since they could speak. Thanks to the rigorous direction of their mother, Vivian, they've become a bona fide girl group whose shows are the talk of the Jazz-era Fillmore. Now Vivian has scored a once-in-a-lifetime offer from a talent manager, who promises to catapult The Salvations into the national spotlight. Vivian knows this is the big break she's been praying for. But sometime between the hours of rehearsal on their rooftop and the weekly gigs at the Champagne Supper Club, the girls have become women, women with dreams that their mother cannot imagine. Margaret Wilkerson Sexton's last novel, The Revisioners, won a 2020 Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize, an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work and a George Garrett New Writing Award; was a California and Northern California Book Award finalist, a 2020 Hurston/Wright Foundation Legacy Award Finalist and a Willie Morris Award for Southern Writing finalist; and was a national bestseller as well as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. Her debut novel, A Kind of Freedom, was long-listed for the National Book Award and the Northern California Book Award, won the Crook's Corner Book Prize, and was the recipient of the First Novelist Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association.

Discussion | Documenting Racial Inequality in the US Through Photography (In Person and Online)


Join Lauren Walsh, author of Through the Lens: The Pandemic and Black Lives Matter, and Vanessa Charlot, an award-winning photographer and filmmaker at the University of Mississippi whose work focuses on the intersectionality of race, politics, culture and sexual/gender expression, for a conversation on the power of political photography in the contemporary moment. This discussion addresses how political photography of today echoes but also innovates the photography of the latter twentieth century. Having recently witnessed the largest protests in US history--the Black Lives Matter demonstrations of 2020--Walsh and Charlot unpack today's evolving landscape, exploring what it means to participate in the documentation of racial inequality today and asking whether political photography remains a potent tool in an ever more crowded visual landscape.

Discussion | In Dreams Awake: Morris Hirshfield's Visual Imagination (online)


The exhibition Morris Hirshfield Rediscovered presents stylized paintings of landscapes, animals and female figures. Often nude, the portraits are disarming, turning women’s bodies into fantastically flattened eroticized figures. This program will explore Hirshfield’s visual imagination while posing questions concerning his male gaze.  Hosted and moderated by art critic Isabella Segalovich, the discussion will feature three women artists who all defy realism in their combination of bright colors, decorative motifs, mythology and popular culture. Painter Susan Bee produces mythological paintings where archetypes are used to render social and personal struggles. Sculptor Kathy Ruttenberg composes fairytale ceramic tableaux where female figures merge with animal and floral figures. Painter Jamea Richmond Edwards offers parables of the present and the future with mystical versions of herself and others.

Book Discussion | The Age of Goodbyes: A Novel of Family History and Political Turmoil


By Li Zi Shu, one of Southeast Asia’s most exciting writers, The Age of Goodbyes is a wildly inventive account of family history, political turmoil, and the redemptive grace of storytelling. In 1969, in the wake of Malaysia's deadliest race riots, a woman named Du Li An secures her place in society by marrying a gangster. In a parallel narrative, a critic known only as The Fourth Person explores the work of a writer also named Du Li An. And a third storyline is in the second person; “you” are reading a novel titled The Age of Goodbyes. Floundering in the wake of “your” mother’s death, “you” are trying to unpack the secrets surrounding “your” lineage.

Discussion | Towards Right Relations: The Role of Cultural Institutions


This event follows a series of working sessions—organized by the gallery over the past several months—centering on the uses and limitations of public land acknowledgements. Working with a cohort of Indigenous artists and organizers, Pace has developed a formal land acknowledgement, subject to future elaboration, that will function as a living document for the gallery’s Chelsea spaces to guide and strengthen its work in community outreach and broad coalition building. Through this process, the gallery has identified further action steps to deepen its relationships with Lenape communities and Indigenous communities who have historically gathered, and continue to gather, in Lenapehoking. This is an evening of dialogue focused on the ways cultural institutions can move towards right relations with Indigenous communities and the role that art can play in that repair. Participants in the discussion will include artists Nadema Agard, Jeremy Dennis, Mercedes Terrance, and River Whittle, and Curtis Zunigha, the Co-Director and Co-Founder of the Lenape Center. This upcoming event will also feature a reading of the gallery’s land acknowledgement.

Book Club | Toad by Katherine Dunn (online)


A thrilling conversation about fearless literary legend Katherine Dunn’s newly revealed novel. Upon its release in 1989, Katherine Dunn’s Geek Love captivated readers, earned a spot on The New York Times bestseller list, and was nominated for the National Book Award. It is widely considered a cult classic, one of the weirdest, most beloved novels of recent history. In one of the most exciting publications of the fall, Toad is Dunn’s previously unpublished novel of the reflections of a deeply scarred and reclusive woman. A brilliant precursor to the book that would make Dunn a misfit hero and a refreshing take even fifty-some years after it was written, Toad demonstrates Dunn’s genius for black humor and irony, her ecstatic celebration of the grotesque. Panelists include artist and writer Molly Crabapple, writer of the forward for Toad, and Naomi Huffman, editor of Toad. Don’t miss this unforgettable discussion.

Classical Music | A Contemporary Musical Examination of Beethoven


Over the period of several years, the cellist Jörg Ulrich Krah and the pianist Bernhard Parz have fulfilled a common dream and recorded all Beethoven cello sonatas. “Their view of the five Beethoven sonatas shows great care and familiarity with the various creative periods from which the sonatas originate” the German Orchestra Magazine describes the interpretation of the two Vienna based musicians. With their interpretation they have set new, unusual accents, especially by building bridges to contemporary music. In 2017 the renowed German composer Georg Katzer was commissioned to write "postscriptum to B.1-3". Katzer’s compositions are a contemporary musical examination of Beethoven, the works are extremly exciting and build a bridge to Beethoven’s work. After a series of successful concerts in many countries this program is now present for the first time live in America.
