Discussion | Algerian Popular Politics from the War of Independence to the Hirak (online)


The 60th anniversary of Algerian independence takes place within a tense yet galvanizing political context in Algeria. The Hirak protests, which mounted the most serious challenge since 1988 to the army-backed regime and ended the two decade presidency of Abdelaziz Bouteflika in 2019, became the largest and longest lasting protest movement in the country's young history. Starting with a reflection on images of popular protest, our panelists will discuss how the Hirak has challenged the core of the FLN state legacy and its co-optation of narratives of the Algerian Revolution.

Jazz | Jazz Live from Harlem (online)


Hank Johnson was born on July 14, 1949 in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York. He began piano study at age three, first in classical instruction, and learned to write his own music, which he would later do extensively. After finishing high school and then earning a BFA in Communication Arts from New York Institute of Technology, he became active in the jazz scene.   In 1977 Hank replaced Jimmy Nottingham’s trio at the Village Door Restaurant and Supper Club in Jamaica, Queens, NY, and he has since played numerous mainstay venues including Jazz at 966, the Lenox Lounge, the Jazz Gallery and Cleopatra’s Needle. Hank has published numerous original compositions (under his given name, Stuart H. Tresser), which harken back to, and extend, the legacy of the American Songbook. This concert features his trio with “Cool Mike” Fitzbenjamin and Gary Smith, a group that has worked together for over three decades.

Jasper Johns (born May 15, 1930) is a painter, sculptor, and printmaker whose work is associated with abstract expressionism, Neo-Dada, and pop art. He is well known for his depictions of the American flag and other US-related topics. Johns has received many honors throughout his career, including the National Medal of Arts in 1990 and Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011.

Lecture | The Place of Families: Reframing Transnationalism and Reproduction in Times of Fortified Borders (in-person and online)


The purpose of my presentation is to reframe how family reproduction and transnationalism are conceived in migration studies, drawing on a qualitative analysis I conducted among Moroccan households in Italy. In particular, my investigation aims to rethink the role migrant families are deemed to play in contemporary mobility, focusing on household closeness and reproduction understood as interwoven claims that work both as a drive and goal of migrants’ trajectories. Reconstructing how marriages, births and childrearing are interwoven with Moroccan migration, I suggest an expanded understanding of family transnationalism, arguing that it configures not only relationships maintained at a distance, but also proximity relationships and the process of emplacement. In so doing, the article outlines various research leads on household geographies and the role played by migrant families and generations in times of fortified borders as well as stratified reproduction and its visible and invisible boundaries. Speaker Francesca Decimo is Associate Professor in Sociology at the University of Trento (Italy), where she teaches Migration Studies, Ethnicity & Diversity, and Urban Studies.

Opening Reception | A Female Perspective: Group Show


The show will present a selection of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper by a diverse collection of women artists. This group show highlights the unique viewpoint that is considered through women’s art from renowned artists Helen Frankenthaler and Yayoi Kusama, to rising talent Ángeles Agrela and Jenny Morgan. Many of the women in the show are contemporary artists who have gained inspiration from their female predecessors. The exhibition celebrates the persistence of women in a field that is still heavily dominated by men. A Female Perspective explores the connection between these women and the artistic movements that they contributed to.

Lecture | The Human Rights Council in the Current Geopolitical Context


Based on the premise that there is no true peace and security when human rights are absent, and achieving sustainable development requires respect for all human rights, it has become evident that the role of the Human Rights Council – which was designed to promote and protect human rights around the globe – is today more important than ever in our pursuit of a better world for future generations. Since it began functioning 16 years ago, the Human Rights Council has tackled countless human rights issues worldwide and has kept them in focus while at the same time widening the scope on issues it addresses – both thematic and country situations. The Council has also served as an early warning system by sounding alarm bells on of impending or worsening crises and has been effective in responding to crises – both protracted and emerging – all over the world. By referring to its different tools and mechanisms, Ambassador Villegas will make the case of the increased relevance of the Human Rights Council at this critical historic moment when we are witnessing the simultaneous occurrence of world shaping events, all of which have huge humanitarian impact and long-lasting consequences: the COVID-19 pandemic (with a weak recovery and the risk of stagflation); climate change and, more recently, the war in Ukraine steaming from the Russian aggression. Ambassador Federico Villegas is a lawyer and career diplomat. He entered the Argentine foreign service with honours in 1993.

Opening Reception | Peyton Freiman: Miscellaneous Occurrences


The show is similarly anchored in the spatiotemporal semblance which birthed the collection. Although Freiman had already lived as something of a nomad—beginning in the American South before eventually trekking up to Brooklyn—it was not until the Fall of 2021, when Shin Gallery offered him an arts residency program at a cabin in West Danby, New York, that he co-opted the art practice conduct of a recluse, proper. Freiman moved to upstate New York, to a 200 year-old cabin that Jean and Wayne Nowack had formerly occupied since 1971. Jean was a chair seat weaver specializing in caning and Wayne a folk artist and professor of art at Union College—Wayne produced assemblage-style boxes and works on paper reminiscent of the 20th century American Regionalist painters. The two had dubbed the cabin "LoveEarth" and lifted a secluded, idyllic life.

Discussion | 2022 Midterm Elections: Democracy at Risk


A panel discussion on the midterm elections and how it could be an inflection point for American democracy. The panel will explore a variety of issues motivating voters, including some that may have also been on the minds of the immigrants who built the Eldridge Street Synagogue in 1887, where the Museum is now housed. This is a conversation about the past, present, and future of democracy, both at home and abroad, in our landmark building. Featured on this panel will be Christina Greer, Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University, New York State Senator John Liu, political strategist Doug Schoen, and Robert Y. Shapiro, Wallace S. Sayre Professor of Government and International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. The conversation will be moderated by Ester R.

Opening Reception | Anna Weyant: Baby, It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over


The show features eight new paintings along with ten new drawings. The exhibition, which sees Weyant further develop the aesthetics and themes of her previous work, takes its title from a song by Lenny Kravitz—which in turn repeats Yogi Berra’s aphorism—and riffs in self-aware fashion on popular expectations of a young artist’s career trajectory. Many of the exhibited portraits depict the same figure in two slightly different poses, suggesting subtly divergent aspects of the same persona and making reference to the biblical doubled image. The paintings hang on a lush green velvet backdrop, supplied by design house F. Schumacher & Co., which resonates with the images’ hint of camp theatricality.

Opening Reception | Anne Drager: Lion's Heart


Over the years Anne Drager has worked in a variety of media and forms: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, woodcuts, and watercolors. Recently she has reduced that experimentation to basic elements, a union of drawing and color. The images, in watercolor on wood, may seem simple but they reflect all that she learned during her years at play. She has also refined her subject matter to an appreciation of domestic life, its blessings and, above all, its humor. In the process the artwork has become a memorial to her husband, Lee, who passed away in September 2022, just weeks before this exhibition. Anne dealt with this crisis as an artist must, by turning to art. What began as a tribute to his personality has ended in a memorial to his life.

Opening Reception | Joan Mitchell: Paintings, 1979–1985


An exhibition of paintings by Joan Mitchell focusing on the years 1979 to 1985—a significant and deeply generative period within her decades-long career. Featuring paintings from both public and private collections, as well as from the holdings of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the show will coincide with the final leg of the artist’s critically acclaimed retrospective. Mitchell established a singular visual vocabulary over the course of her more than four-decade career. While rooted in the conventions of abstraction, Mitchell’s inventive reinterpretation of the traditional figure-ground relationship and remarkable adeptness with color set her apart from her peers, and resulted in intuitively constructed and emotionally charged compositions that alternately conjure individuals, observations, places, and points in time. Her prodigious oeuvre encompasses not only the large-scale abstract canvases for which she is best known, but also smaller paintings, drawings, and prints. For Mitchell, this period, which included her important 1982 solo exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, was a time of profound artistic development, growth, and focus on the possibilities of painting. As she became even more fully immersed in daily life at her property in Vétheuil, France—surrounded by lush gardens, and challenged and inspired by new creative relationships––Mitchell’s studio practice flourished, and her work became even more ambitious and expansive.

Grinker first met Mike Tyson in the early 1980s, when he was 13 years old training with legendary manager Cus D'amato in Catskill, New York. Initially photographing D'amato and his young fighters, including Tyson, for a term assignment at Parsons, Grinker continued to work with the young prodigy, and their photographic relationship continued to flourish as Tyson's star rose. Eventually, Grinker was traveling the globe with Tyson as he racked up championships, rubbing elbows with celebrities like Madonna, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Jesse Jackson, and Donald Trump, to name a few.

Using materials such as resourced fabric, synthetic hair, glass and acrylic beads, and dental floss, jones makes soft sculpture dolls he calls “homies” and constructs an installation—a world—that holds them.

Opening Reception | Somatic Markings: Group Show


Somatic Markings features seven contemporary artists that employ the nude figure to grapple with issues of 21st-century corporeal politics. Incorporating feminist, queer, and postcolonial methodologies that are constitutive of the artists’ personal histories, these works disassemble notions of the traditional nude, transforming the figure into a medium for nuanced discussions that go beyond the reclamation of the gaze. Rendered in vivid hues that blur the line between figuration and abstraction, they respond formally with a rejection of the binaries that underscore the logical fallacies of many forms of oppression.

Lecture | Forgotten Philosopher Frances Power Cobbe on Women’s Rights and Animal Welfare


In this talk the speaker introduces the moral philosophy of forgotten British philosopher Frances Power Cobbe (1822–1904). A prolific author, Cobbe was instrumental in the passage of the Matrimonial Causes Act (1878) and founded the Victoria Street Society (1875; still existing as the National Anti-Vivisection Society) and the British Union Against Vivisection (1898; still existing as Cruelty Free International, known by its leaping bunny mark on products). An interlocutor of John Stuart Mill and Charles Darwin, Cobbe used her original interpretation of Kantian “intuitive morality” to shift public opinion on domestic abuse, divorce law, women’s right to higher education, and animal welfare, challenging the narrative that utilitarians held a monopoly on these issues. Cobbe’s work analyzes still “live” questions regarding the moral and legal status of women and non-human animals and the relationship between the two issues, often foreshadowing the work of later philosophers. Speaker Dr. Sarah Scott is Chair and Professor of Philosophy at Manhattan College.

Lecture | The Iraqi Uprising and the Political Imagination


In recent years, massive social justice uprisings have erupted in cities around the world. This lecture takes the October 2019 uprising in Iraq as a framework to understand contemporary dynamics of protests and social movements. It looks at massive protests in Iraq through the lens of space, body politics, materiality, and affects. It argues that centering Iraqi protester's subjectivities and trajectories, and their politics of life and death, expands our political and theoretical imagination on empire, feminism, and emancipation. Speaker Zahra Ali is a sociologist and Assistant Professor at Rutgers University-Newark.

Book Discussion | The Nation That Never Was: Reconstructing America's Story (in-person and online)


A new book by distinguished legal scholar Kermit Roosevelt III, great-great-grandson of Theodore Roosevelt, first cousin (three times removed) of Eleanor Roosevelt, and distant cousin of FDR. Eye-opening, provocative, and timely, The Nation That Never Was delivers a powerful reinterpretation of the story of America’s founding and the origins of its most important and fundamental values. Challenging the narrative that attributes core American ideals such as equality and liberty to the vision of the country’s founders, Roosevelt argues that they originate instead in the Civil War and as the hope of Reconstruction. Modern Americans, he asserts, are not the heirs of the Founders, but of the people who overthrew and destroyed that political order; and Reconstruction, he says, was not a fulfillment of the beliefs of the Founding but rather a repudiation. Through a deeply informed historical lens, and with persuasive passion, Roosevelt makes the case that the common American story is not only untrue—it has also outlived its usefulness.

Discussion | Exploring the Intersections Between Health and Racial Inequality (In Person and Online)


Racial inequalities in health have a long and sordid history in the US, widening during the pandemic and amidst recent policy and court decisions. This conversation with scholars Dana-Ain Davis, Steven W. Thrasher, and Zakiya Luna takes up that history to lay bare those historic inequities in access to health care, reproductive services and public inattention to Black death. This discussion will be moderated by the co-organizers of the Conversations in Black Freedom Studies series, Robyn Spencer and Jeanne Theoharis. Dana-Ain Davis is Professor of Urban Studies and Anthropology and the director of the Center for the Study of Women and Society at the Queens College. In the last decade, Davis has focused her attention on reproduction, race and the technologies that assist in reproduction. She is the author, co-author, or co-editor of five books, the most recent being Reproductive Injustice: Racism, Pregnancy, and Premature Birth. Reproductive Injustice received the 2020 Honorable Mention for the Victor Turner Prize in Ethnographic Writing; was a finalist for the 2020 PROSE AWARD, given by the Association of American Publishers; and is listed as one of seven books on anti-racism in New York Magazine. Zakiya Luna is Dean's Distinguished Professorial Scholar in the Department of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. Her research is in the areas of social change, sociology of law, health and inequality. Dr. Luna recently published Reproductive Rights as Human Rights: Women of Color and the Fight for Reproductive Justice. She also co-edited Black Feminist Sociology: Perspectives and Praxis with Whitney Pirtle. Dr. Luna was the lead author of the Reproductive Justice review article in the 2013 volume of the Annual Review of Law and Social Science. She is also co-creator and former co-editor of the University of California Press book series Reproductive Justice: A New Vision for the 21st Century. Steven W. Thrasher is the inaugural Daniel H. Renberg Chair of social justice in reporting and an assistant professor of journalism at Northwestern University. Thrasher teaches courses in journalism at the graduate and undergraduate levels as well as elective classes cross-listed with American Studies, African American Studies and Gender and Sexuality Studies. A scholar of the criminalization of HIV/AIDS, Thrasher's work centers on marginalized populations. As a teacher, he encourages students to draw upon history, theory, culture, and reporting to critically read and create media narratives. Research and reporting areas include U.S. Civil Rights; international histories of LGBTQ and gender identities; social movements; court reporting; media frames; colonialism; critical race theory; queer methods; policing; art criticism; public health reporting; and HIV/AIDS history.

Lecture | Inescapable Atmospheres: From Climate Realism to Decarbonized Desire (in-person and online)


Matt Bower, adjunct assistant professor in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, will present a talk exploring the imaginative limits to moving beyond fossil-fuel based capitalism, the ways in which capital thwarts and constrains our ability to imagine alternatives even as its expanding processes of social and ecological extraction make life unbearable. Why is maintaining this system at all costs widely represented as more “realistic”—and perhaps even more desirable—than trying to escape from it? Critical theory might help us make sense of this weakness in our imagination by examining subjectivity as a social effect of carbon intensity, that is, by revealing how our desires, ideas, and ways of living are constituted by globe-spanning relations of capital accumulation and greenhouse gas emissions.

Lecture | Reflections on the Limits of Architecture: Critical Regionalism Revisited


Kenneth Frampton is an architect, critic, historian, and previously Ware Professor of Architecture at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University (1972-2021). His most important works include Modern Architecture: A Critical History (Thames & Hudson, 1980; 5th edition 2020), Studies in Tectonic Culture: The Poetics of Construction in Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Architecture (MIT Press, 1995), and The Other Modern Movement (Yale University Press,2021). Frampton will reflect on the historical and theoretical entanglements of architecture with place, the public realm, cultural identity, urban landscape and the environment, as well as on the question of “predicament” of architecture in the neo-liberal, capitalist world since the 1980s and well into the new Millennium.

Lecture | Revolution and Civil War in Italy in the 1970s (in-person and online)


This lecture is part of a larger project that argues for the relevance and importance of the progressive and revolutionary movements of the 1970s in various parts of the world for our current political situation. This presentation will analyze the shift of revolutionary movements in Italy from a focus on industrial workers as the central protagonists of struggle in the early 1970s to networks of diverse protagonists later in the decade. These movements experimented with the means to link together a multiplicity of struggles, including feminists, students, industrial and public-sector workers, unemployed and precarious workers, gay liberation movements, and others, each of which strove for liberation on its own terms.

Classical Music | Innovators in Exile: Celebrating 100 Years of the International Society for New Music


In 1922, composers from all over the world gathered in Salzburg to present their innovative musical works in a three-day festival. The chamber music festival challenged the national-conservative image of Austria promoted by the recently founded Salzburg Festival. At the end of this festival, Egon Wellesz, Rudolf Reti and others founded the International Society for Contemporary Music which to this day continues to promote the advancement and dissemination of new music around the world. This concert, which is the prelude to a three-day-festival planned in April 2023, will feature songs and piano solo works of these little-noticed composers, giving them a voice again after decades of neglect. Some of these pieces are world premieres, and many have not been performed again since they were written and premiered. The idea of the program is to perform such works by these composers that were written after emigration to reflect their American or British careers.

Welcome YZ Chin, Madhu Kaza, Emma Ramadan, and David Unger to a panel discussion on the politics of translation. The art of translation is just that—an art, one that requires degrees of reverence, patience, and introspection. The role of the translator is also an advocate, tasked with defending the text as it is introduced to other cultures while preserving its truth and conveying the author’s message. Topics covered by the panel include navigating the dangers of literary translation, finding genuine, respectful ways of engaging with other cultures, negotiating the desires of the translator, and bringing new life to ‘lost’ books through the resurrecting craft of translation.

Conference | Ukraine in North America: Diaspora Activism, Academic Initiatives (in-person and online)


The international conference will gather scholars from the United States, Canada, and Ukraine to focus on different waves of immigration from Ukraine to North America and on the organizational and political activity of these individuals, chiefly their establishment of Ukrainian studies in their new homelands. Having helped incorporate Ukraine as a subject of discussion at academic institutions in the U.S. and Canada, the diaspora has now itself become the subject of scholarly analysis in contemporary Ukraine. Among the topics to be examined during the conference: new approaches in defining the Ukrainian diaspora; the political engagement of the diaspora during the twentieth century and today; the role of libraries and archives in the establishment of Ukrainian studies institutions in North America; and various avenues of study of the Ukrainian diaspora in today's Ukraine.

Book Discussion | Halfway from Home: Escaping to Nostalgia (online)


When she left a chaotic home at eighteen, author Sarah Fawn Montgomery chased restlessness, claiming places on the West Coast, Midwest, and East Coast, while determined never to settle. But it is difficult to move forward when she longs for the past. Now her family is ravaged by addiction, illness, and poverty; the country is increasingly divided; and the natural worlds in which she seeks solace are under siege by wildfire, tornadoes, and unrelenting storms. In her new book, Montgomery turns to nostalgia as a way to grieve a rapidly-changing world, excavating the stories and scars we bury and unearthing literal and metaphorical childhood time capsules and treasures.
