Discussion | Democracy Dialogues: A Conversation on the Hispanic Vote in the U.S. Midterm Elections (online)


The host of Democracy Dialogues Eric Farnsworth in a one-on-one interview on the U.S. midterm election results with Simon Rosenberg, president of the New Democrat Network and the New Policy Institute, a think tank based in Washington, DC. A prominent American political strategist and thought leader, Rosenberg is also a frequent commentator in the national media. Control of the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, and numerous statehouses is at stake on Tuesday, November 8. At a time of uncertainty and change, with unprecedented pressures on the democratic process, Hispanic voters are a critical component of the electorate and will play an important role in determining final results. Yet Hispanic voters are often miscategorized by observers and their interests are often misunderstood.

Classical Music | George Philip Telemann's Bassoon Sonata Performed by Acclaimed Musician (In Person and Online)


Joseph Jones, bassoon; Donald Livingston, harpsichord; Charles Asch, cello Georg Philipp Telemann (1681 - 1767) was a German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. Almost completely self-taught in music, he became a composer against his family's wishes and turned into one of the most prolific composers in history. He wrote a considerable amount of music for educating organists under his direction, including 48 chorale preludes and 20 small fugues to accompany his chorale harmonisations for 500 hymns. His music incorporates French, Italian, and German national styles, and he was at times even influenced by Polish popular music. He remained at the forefront of all new musical tendencies, and his music stands as an important link between the late Baroque and early Classical styles. Joseph Jones works as a bassoonist performing throughout the country and occasionally around the world. Ensembles he has worked with include The English Concert, the Boston Early Music Festival, Early Music New York, American Bach Soloists, and Les Arts Florissants at the festival Dans les Jardins de William Christie in Thire, France. He has appeared as a soloist with Lyra Baroque Orchestra and Juilliard 415.

Book Discussion | Dineh: Small-Town Life in Belarus (online)


Ida Maze's autobiographical novel is a haunting portrait of her rural, village, and small-town life in White Russia (now Belarus) at the turn of the 20th century. Dineh's story is interwoven with portraits of other people, chiefly women and girls, in her community. The novel examines the lives of women, including class stratification, thwarted romance, violence (domestic, state-instigated, and otherwise), and the perils of childbirth. In addition to exploring relations between Jews and non-Jews, Maze's novel touches on Tsarist anti-Semitism, restrictions on Jewish economic survival, and the rising tide of revolutionary movements.

From Social Movement Organizing to Policy Success: Lessons for Implementing Racially Just Policy from the Black Freedom Movements of the 1960s (in-person and online)


As the formal political system remains unresponsive to an array of social, political, and ecological crises, what power do ordinary people have to create a future that allows them to live safe, sustainable, and free lives? As a sociologist, speaker Tarun Banerjee's work focuses on broad questions of political power: who has it? what do they do with it? and how can those without power get it? He has two lines of research; first, on public policy and the power structure, focusing on how public policy is made, how business influences policy, and the effects of this on the democratic process. He also studies social movements to understand how people without power organize collectively to get it. What tactics do and don’t work when people are shut out of formal positions of power? And specifically, how does the world we live in today—one dominated by gigantic corporations and endless money in elections—change the strategies ordinary people can use to organize for change?

Lecture | Learn About the Future of Technology from One of the Godfathers of AI


How can machines learn as efficiently as humans and animals? How can machines learn to reason and plan? How can machines learn representations of percepts and action plans at multiple levels of abstraction, enabling them to reason, predict, and plan at multiple time horizons? Yann LeCun discusses the future of artificial intelligence and a possible path towards autonomous intelligent agents. Yann Andre LeCun is a French computer scientist working primarily in the fields of machine learning, computer vision, mobile robotics, and computational neuroscience. He is the Vice President, Chief AI Scientist at Meta (originally Facebook). He is known for his work on optical character recognition and computer vision using convolutional neural networks (CNN), and is a founding father of convolutional nets. LeCun received the 2018 Turing Award (often referred to as "Nobel Prize of Computing"), together with Yoshua Bengio and Geoffrey Hinton, for their work on deep learning. The three are sometimes referred to as the "Godfathers of AI" and "Godfathers of Deep Learning."

Discussion | Why Is Democracy in Decline?


The rules and norms of democratic politics and individual rights that are crucial to liberal democracy, are under attack in the U.S. and around the world--often with high levels of public support for leaders who openly oppose democratic institutions and rights protections. What's behind the apparent popularity of illiberal, anti-democratic politics? Where and how did liberal democracy fail so many citizens? How might we imagine a future democratic politics that addresses the injustices and inequities that gave rise to the current moment of illiberal anti-democratic politics? Speakers include: Mark Frazier, Professor and Chair of Politics Anne McNevin, Associate Professor of Politics Jessica Pisano, Associate Professor of Politics Sandipto Dasgupta, Assistant Professor of Politics

Opening Reception | Rita Letendre & Fred Eversley: Light Forces


Light Forces traces the creative rapport and friendship shared between Rita Letendre and Fred Eversley that began in the 1960s and continued for decades. Initially meeting in Los Angeles, Letendre and Eversley maintained an abiding fascination with light, exploring its experiential and conceptual properties through their work. If luminosity and vision were touchstones for artists working in Southern California in the 1960s, now codified under the rubric Light and Space, a close examination of Letendre’s and Eversley’s work reveals their distinctive innovations and a probing, singular focus on embodied perception.

Opening Reception | Goyo: Hashiguchi Goyo and His Contemporaries


Renowned for his bijin-ga (pictures of beautiful women), Goyo Hashiguchi (1880-1921) was a luminary of the Shin Hanga, or “new print” movement. While he died before he could see the development of modern bijin-ga, Goyo set a tone and a standard for the genre through his intimate and technically brilliant woodblock prints. At his death, his entire artistic career spanned 15 years, of which only the last five were spent producing prints.

Lecture | "Motes to trouble the mind’s eye": Marcel Duchamp and Trompe l'Oeil


Trompe l’oeil (“deceive the eye”) motifs are calculated to puzzle eye and mind, perception, and cognition. Artist Marcel Duchamp’s notorious disdain for the realm of the “retinal” implicitly discredited fooling the eye. In this talk, Michael Leja explores how Duchamp’s work produces an array of conceptual conundrums by pushing trompe l’oeil devices to extremes.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Fundamentals / Ripple Hiss


Carl D'Alvia: Fundamentals Neither wholly abstract, nor acutely figurative, Carl D’Alvia’s meticulously rendered and whimsically playful sculptures of creatures, shapes, and humanoids oscillate between liminal states. Enshrouded entirely in textural “skins” resembling tessellated patterns, wood grains, or shaggy furs, his chameleon-like sculptures complicate preconceived correlations between subject matter, form, and material composition, often placing them in ironic juxtapositions. Maureen St. Vincent: Ripple Hiss Embedded within Maureen St. Vincent’s painted and shaped frames, apertures open onto worlds of imagery at once surreal and familiar. The ovular as a guiding, compositional form here isn’t incidental: executed in arcadian, textured pastels; soft fleshy pinks; and saturated swaths of vibrant hues, her drawings invoke the bodily while sliding over into interior visions, intense viscerality, sensuous symbolism, and unruly fantasies.

Billy Childish returns to New York with a new exhibition featuring large-scale paintings that expand the artist’s exploration of classic art historical themes including landscapes and bathers. The title reflects Childish’s philosophy that life is a spiritual journey focused on joining heaven and earth and his belief that creative expression, as well as the beauty of nature, allow for connection to the divine. Each painting in the show offers a glimpse into his worldview.

Opening Reception | Brett Goodroad: Invitingly Open Paintings


In Goodroad's latest paintings, abstract compositions can veer toward landscape or figuration but remain invitingly open, resisting legibility. The artist builds his densely impastoed surfaces on linen but also makes use of less conventional supports, applying paint on copper panels or sheets of silk stretched over flannel. Employing techniques of scumbling and underpainting, Goodroad renders each richly hued tableau a world unto itself, in an ongoing bid to renew our sensory engagement with painting for its own sake.

Opening Reception | Diana Thater: Practical Effects


A new large-scale video installation by pioneering video artist Diana Thater (b. 1962). Since emerging in the early 1990s, Thater has pioneered the use of film, video, light, and sound, continually challenging the boundaries of time-based media and installation art. Her work explores the relationship between the natural and man-made worlds while critically examining the structures of mediated reality. Approaching the idea of post-apocalyptic life through a poignant and wistful lens, Practical Effects speculates on the nature of our world in the coming years and centuries and explores the ways in which the relationships between man, machine, and animal might evolve in tandem with the physical and psychical condition of future Earth and its remaining inhabitants.

Loughnan is a multi-award winning artist living in NYC, originally from Australia, and spending much of her time in Mexico.

This is a survey of paintings executed on various surfaces—canvas, velvet, paper, and directly on the wall. These text-based works pulse with a strong vein of irony and humor. Words, and phrases, spill, drip, and accumulate to the point of obliterating themselves in palimpsests of illegibility. They sit on, or recede into the substrate, they also emerge from it, as thickly pigmented forms, and three-dimensional reliefs, reenacting the current state of our national discourse.

Opening Reception | Michael Reeder: Pushing Up Daisies


Contemporary figurative American painter Michael Reeder employs the use of flat graphic expanses of space alongside colorful patterning in conjunction with realistically rendered areas of human anatomy. Reeder brings opposing multimedia multilayered elements together in harmony to create bold and dynamic images. He uses fictional characters as a method of the self and its participation in society. Reeder's work has evolved over the years to reflect a more indirect self portrait that allows him to share more personal interests and themes such as the relationship of ego and the inevitable imminent death of the human.

Book Discussion | The Poverty of Ethics: Morality as a Political Tool


It is a common assumption that ethics must serve as the cornerstone of politics. Yet abstract moral arguments have always been used for justifying all kinds of atrocities; ethical sensitivity and compassion have been expressed towards particular kinds of victims, while totally ignoring others. The liberal West, in particular, continually manifests such blindness. It is horrified by non-Western oppressive methods, but turns a blind eye to their Western equivalents. The gratification of holding the moral high ground consistently serves as a political instrument in the hands of those seeking to shore up the existing order.  In The Poverty of Ethics, philosopher and activist Anat Matar argues for the conceptual primacy of political discourse over ethics and claims that only the political force which stands for equality, justice and democracy – the Left – can provide the coordinates for an ethical life under conditions of global injustice. Appealing to philosophical ideas on the essence of language, Matar shows how the ethos of the Left, as it has evolved over years, underlies and gradually forms the basis for ethics.

Opening Reception | Tomashi Jackson: The Great Society


Jackson continues to explore past legislation and key moments of history that are emblematic of times of important change and that are relevant to the present. She selects images that embody the spirit as well as facts of those moments to examine these historical events for their impact, heedful of how they resonate in our current time. For this exhibition, images taken from the public domain focus on three events where the possibility and promise of a great society was presented to audiences public and private in 1963, 1965, and 1969. Jackson looks at President Lyndon Baines Johnson's first formal speech about his intentions for the Great Society, given at the University of Michigan in 1963. Images are taken from the audience as they listen to him talk about his proposed legislation. Other images, from 1965, show young Black organizers meeting with him regarding the policies in that legislation on voting rights. These images from 1963 and 1965 collide with images of an audience applauding and cheering after a performance of "To Be Young, Gifted and Black" by Nina Simone at Morehouse College in 1969. Jackson looks at these high points from the 1960s with all their implications in relationship to the present unravelling of that same legislation.

Book Discussion | Trust: A Novel about Money, Power, Intimacy, and Perception


Even through the roar and effervescence of the 1920s, everyone in New York has heard of Benjamin and Helen Rask. He is a legendary Wall Street tycoon; she is the daughter of eccentric aristocrats. Together, they have risen to the very top of a world of seemingly endless wealth—all as a decade of excess and speculation draws to an end. But at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune? This is the mystery at the center of Bonds, a successful 1937 novel that all of New York seems to have read. Yet there are other versions of this tale of privilege and deceit. Hernan Diaz’s novel elegantly puts these competing narratives into conversation with one another—and in tension with the perspective of one woman bent on disentangling fact from fiction. The result is a novel that spans over a century and becomes more exhilarating with each new revelation.

Using the traditional papel picado (paper cutting) technique, its tools and tissue paper, she will also discuss her floral papel picado depiction and their medicinal properties taken directly from the codex. Blanka Amezkua was formally trained as a painter. Her creative practice is greatly influenced and informed by folk art and popular culture, from embroidery, papel picado to comic books. Collaboration, radical pedagogy, and community building are central to her art practice and projects. Her identity, experiences, and artistic decisions are shaped by the reality that she is an immigrant Mexican born-American artist living in New York City.

Talk | Posters That Sing: Notes on Indigenous Poster Design (online)


Indigenous representation in poster history typically focuses on racist depictions leaning on stereotypes and caricatures of Native culture to sell products or events. Alongside this horrific history, however, Indigenous poster designers and printers have thrived, creating a legacy of vibrant, exciting imagery that counters the dominant narrative. Poster House is pleased to partner with designer and scholar Brian Johnson for a brief survey on this often overlooked body of Indigenous work, helping expand the cannon of poster history.

Talk | Artist Talk: Collecting Materials from Beaches


Renowned visual artist Duke Riley presents work on the occasion of his solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, described as:  “In DEATH TO THE LIVING, Long Live Trash, Brooklyn-based artist Duke Riley uses materials collected from beaches in the northeastern United States to tell a tale of both local pollution and global marine devastation. Riley’s contemporary interpretations of historical maritime crafts—such as scrimshaw, sailor’s valentines, and fishing lures—confront the catastrophic effect that the oil, food, and beverage industries have had on the environment through single-use plastics. The works are presented in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Jan Martense Schenck and Nicholas Schenck Houses, alongside a selection of historical scrimshaw from our collection, directly connecting environmental injustices past and present. In his contemporary interpretations of scrimshaw—ink drawings etched into bone by sailors—Riley replaces the medium’s customary whale teeth with repurposed plastic containers, detergent bottles, toothbrushes, and other waste. The works incorporate the maritime imagery traditional to scrimshaw, but expand it to portray international business executives that the artist identifies as responsible for the perpetuation of single-use plastics. Also on view are Riley’s fishing lures and sailor’s valentines, similarly created with detritus found on northeast coastal beaches. The exhibition juxtaposes corporation-driven pollution with new short films by Riley that highlight New York community members working to remediate plastic damage and restore our waterways.”

Discussion | Yiddish in Translation: On the Hunt for Novels by Women (online)


Explore the lives of Jewish women in tenements through women’s novels. On the hunt to defy the “urban legend” that women only wrote poems and short stories in Yiddish, but not novels, Professor Anita Norich discovered scores of novels, some of them at the YIVO archive. In this conversation, she’ll focus on these novels and her translations, and how they shed light on tenement life and women’s lives more broadly, including abortions, sex outside of marriage, and how women found and rebuilt homes in the face of revolution, war, economic challenges and misogyny. Dr. Anita Norich will be joined in conversation with Museum President Dr. Annie Polland.

In Toni Ann Johnson’s debut collection, a Black family, the Arringtons, moves to a small, predominantly white suburb of New York in 1962.

Book Discussion | Maya Deren: Choreographed for Camera


Drama and myth frame the life and death of Maya Deren. Born in Kiev in 1917, at the start of the Russian Revolution, she died forty-four years later in New York City. In her brief life, she established herself as a pioneering experimental filmmaker, prolific writer, accomplished photographer, and crusader for a personal and poetic cinema. With its dreamy circular narrative and enigmatic imagery, her first film, Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), has inspired generations of artists, filmmakers, and poets. Deren collaborated with numerous mid-century cultural luminaries, including Katherine Dunham, Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Anais Nin, and Gregory Bateson. In 1953, she published Divine Horsemen, a ground-breaking ethnographic study of Haitian religious culture. Although Deren completed only six short films in her lifetime, her impact on the history of cinema is immeasurable. She has become the patron saint of 20th century experimental film. The aura that suffuses Deren’s legend emanates from the power of her films, magnified by her bohemian glamour and visionary intelligence. This is the first full biography of Deren. Based on years of research, interviews with some of Deren’s closest collaborators, and generously illustrated with film stills and photographs, author Mark Alice Durant creates a vivid and accessible narrative exploring the complexities and contradictions in the life and work of this remarkable and charismatic artist.

Discussion | Digital Humanism: Shaping Transformation


Is the ‘digital world’: open, fair, diverse, sustainable, democratic? Digital technologies have fundamentally changed our world in recent decades. Human development has always happened via disruptions and radical changes, as triggered by groundbreaking technical developments, natural disasters or even wars. Today, technical developments open up unprecedented opportunities, but also risks. They challenge us as a society, question our view of humanity and our values and agreements. Knowledge transfer and knowledge dissemination must therefore be democratic and participatory as well as interdisciplinary and transnational in order to meet the challenges we are facing as a society. Above all, however, it also requires discourse on a broad societal level, because these developments affect us all. Nothing less than ‘being human’ is at stake. But what does that mean in the age of AI?

Lecture | Re-Discover King Tut's Tomb with Egyptian Historian (Online)


Join Christina Riggs, British-American historian and author of Treasured: How Tutankhamun Shaped a Century, as she discusses the history of King Tut and the seismic impact the discovery of his tomb left on modern society. When discovered in 1922 in an Egypt newly independent of the British Empire, the 3,300-year-old tomb of Tutankhamun sent shockwaves around the world. The boy-king became a household name overnight and kickstarted an international obsession with ancient Egypt and its ruling pharoahs that continues to this day. Christina Riggs is a British-American historian, academic, and former museum curator who specializes in the history of archaeology, history of photography, and ancient Egyptian art, and her recent work has concentrated on the history, politics, and contemporary legacy of the 1922 discovery of Tutankahmun's tomb.
