Opera | Letters That You Will Not Get: Women's Voices from the Great War (Online)


This new work gives voice to American, British, European, Asian, African and Caribbean women affected by WWI through a series of vignettes that share their responses to the war -- from enthusiasm to resignation; support to opposition; the war's beginning to its end. Combining contemporary music with excerpts from women's writings on both sides of the conflict, Letters tells the story of the Great War as experienced by the women who lived through it.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Openings: 1950s: Spirit and Substance / A Liquid Belonging


Richard Pousette-Dart's 1950s: Spirit and Substance—which spotlights Pousette-Dart’s paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and journals from the 1950s, a pivotal decade of the artist’s career—is curated by Joanna Pousette-Dart, the artist’s daughter. The presentation offers an unprecedented, in-depth look at a protean period in which Pousette-Dart’s painterly investigations were directed toward the extremes of color, light, and physical density. A Liquid Belonging ,Torkwase Dyson's upcoming exhibition of new site-specific sculptural installations and paintings, invites viewers into spatial and perceptual practices that affirm improvisation, indeterminacy, and migration. This forthcoming presentation will mark Dyson’s first solo show at our New York gallery.

Discussion | The Children's Books of Bruno Munari


Curator Steven Guarnacchia is joined by Meagan Bennett, Seymour Chwast, and Ulla Warchol to discuss the children's books of Bruno Munari, celebrating the exhibition Bruno Munari: The Child Within, now open at the Center for Italian Modern Art. Bruno Munari (Milan, 1907– Milan, 1998) was one of the most independent and influential figures in the history of twentieth-century international art, design, graphics, and film. Associated with the second wave of the Italian Futurist movement, and one of the founders of the Italian movement for concrete art—Movimento Arte Concreta, his multifaceted practice allowed him to contribute to all fields of the visual arts, as well as literature, poetry and teaching. He is considered one of the protagonists of programmed and kinetic art.

Book Discussion | The Undercurrents: A Story of Berlin


Humane, thought provoking, and moving, Kirsty Bell's hybrid literary portrait of a place makes the case for radical close readings: of ourselves, our cities, and our histories. The Undercurrents is a dazzling work of biography, memoir, and cultural criticism told from a precise vantage point: a stately nineteenth-century house on Berlin's Landwehr Canal, a site at the center of great historical changes, but also smaller domestic ones. The view from this house offers a ringside seat onto the city's theater of action. The building has stood on the banks of the canal since 1869, its feet in the West but looking East, right into the heart of a metropolis in the making, on a terrain inscribed indelibly with trauma. When her marriage breaks down, Bell--a British-American art critic, adrift in her midforties--becomes fixated on the history of her building and of her adoptive city. Taking the view from her apartment window as her starting point, she turns to the lives of the house's various inhabitants, to accounts penned by Walter Benjamin, Rosa Luxemburg, and Gabriele Tergit, and to the female protagonists in the works of Theodor Fontane, Irmgard Keun, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. A new cultural topography of Berlin emerges, one which taps into energetic undercurrents to recover untold or forgotten stories beneath the city's familiar narratives.

Film | The Case You (2020): Abused Actors


Just how far is it acceptable to push actors in the name of cinema? And at what point do you cross the boundary where acting becomes sexual assault? These are the questions raised by the testimony of six young women, including guest Isabelle Bertges, who were manipulated and sexually abused during an audition. They knew beforehand that the film they were auditioning for was about incest, and they were familiar with the director’s controversial work, but during the audition, without prior discussion, they were groped, beaten, and forced to undress. These traumatizing experiences resurfaced when a few years later it transpired that the footage of the auditions had been made into a documentary. Director: Alison Kuhn 80 min. In German with English subtitles

He has maintained worldwide renown as a leading musician of his era, one whose "poetic genius was based on a professional technique that was without equal in his generation". A child prodigy, he completed his musical education and composed his earlier works in Warsaw before leaving Poland at the age of 20. Thereafter he gave only 30 public performances, preferring the more intimate atmosphere of the salon. He supported himself by selling his compositions and by giving piano lessons, for which he was in high demand.

Concert | Baritone and Soprano from Haiti


Haitian singers Jean-Bernard Cerin and Melissa Joseph follow the trajectory of a baroque melody through the Caribbean. Baritone Jean Bernard Cerin and soprano Melissa Joseph, joined by Stephen Gamboa-Diaz on harpsichord and piano, present a program based on Cerin's research which explores the tale--across centuries and continents--of "Lisette quitte la plaine," an enduringly popular song from Haiti that provides an uncanny pathway to highlight classical music by and about people of African descent.
