Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 11 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Start times: 10:30am, 12pm

Concert | The Music of Karol Rathaus (In Person and Online)


Works by Rathaus, Nichols, and Halat performed by the Karol Rathaus Ensemble: Marcin Halat, violin; Marcin Maczynski, cello; Aleksandra Halat, piano; and guest artist Steven Beck, piano. Karol Rathaus (1895 -- 1954) was a German-Austrian Jewish composer who immigrated to the United States via Berlin, Paris, and London, escaping the rise of Nazism in Germany. He was a renowned film composer, writing many commissioned works and several film scores, while his compositional output includes mostly instrumental works: symphonies, orchestral works, serenades, sonatas and ballets. While he achieved global fame during his lifetime, in Nazi Germany his compositions were classified as "degenerate art" and assigned a performance ban. He is now considered one of the many great 'composers in exile'.

Book Discussion | Analysis and Exile: Boyhood, Loss, and the Lessons of Anna Freud (online)


The story of the childhood and youth of Peter Heller, one of the first children to be psychoanalyzed by Anna Freud and one of the 20 students invited to attend her experimental school in 1920s Vienna. While Anna tries to teach him how to overcome his fears, Peter's native Vienna slides into fascist barbarism and he is forced to navigate an increasingly dangerous world. When he is eighteen, he flees to England only to be deported to Canada, where he is interned as a German-speaking foreign national; here Jewish refugees and Nazi P.O.W.'s live cheek by jowl. To tell this story, author Vivian Heller draws on a wealth of primary sources, including her father's case history and his internment diary, using novelistic techniques to bring the past alive.

Discussion | Filmmaker Discusses All About My Sisters (online)


A Q+A with director Wang Qiong and to discuss her film All About My Sisters.   In her astonishing feature debut, Wang Qiong documents with unflinching and harrowing honesty her own fractured family, gradually revealing the personal and psychological effects of China’s one-child policy on the individual, the family unit, and women in society at large. At the center of the film is her sister, Jin, who remains profoundly affected by her biological parents’ abandonment of her as a baby after attempting to abort her. Adopted by her aunt and uncle, Jin resumed living with her birth parents as a teenager, yet the family remains embroiled in a legacy of trauma. Filming over the course of seven years, Wang moves far beyond the diaristic, capturing moments of vulnerability, joy, pain, and anguish with insight and delicate artistry.

Book Discussion | Martha Graham: When Dance Became Modern, by Neil Baldwin


Biographer Neil Baldwin and Janet Eilber of the Martha Graham Dance Company discuss the life and legacy of Martha Graham. They will explore Graham's personal and professional worlds, and her enduring contributions to the dance field, accompanied by live performances from the Company. Neil Baldwin's new biography of Martha Graham tells the story of the American choreographer who revolutionized modern dance, and who Time Magazine once called "the Dancer of the Century." Her technique, now used by dance companies throughout the world, became the first long-lasting alternative to the idiom of classical ballet. Her pioneering movements--powerful, dynamic, jagged, edgy, forthright--combined with her distinctive system of training, were the epitome of American modernism, performance as art. Her work continued to astonish and inspire for more than sixty years as she choreographed more than 180 works.

Lecture | Typography at VKhuTeMas, the Soviet Union's Revolutionary Art School


VKhuTeMas, or Higher Art and Technical Studios, is a revolutionary Soviet art school that opened its doors just a year after the founding of Bauhaus in Germany. Today, the school is usually remembered for a slew of avant-garde artists who worked there -- Kandinsky and Malevich, Rodchenko and Stepanova, Lissitzky, and Tatlin, among many others. However, the school's innovative pedagogy deserves attention as well. Following some of the formal, theoretical, and political debates that happened in and around VKhuTeMas allows us to better understand the ground-breaking use of typography that developed there and became a staple of constructivist art and design. This lecture will shed light on the origins and trajectory of VKhuTeMas, paying especially close attention to how ideas on typography fed into the school's artistic output and how they evolved over time. Speaker Polina Godz is an art director at the Tribune magazine, and a graphic designer at the Jacobin magazine.

Book Discussion | New Weathers: Poetics from the Naropa Archive


Editors and contributors celebrate the publication of a collection of lectures transcribed from the audio archives of Naropa University's Summer Writing Program that represent a continuing lineage of experimental literary movements.  New Weathers asks us to consider how poetics might embolden deeper engagements with the world. Collected from the alternative education zone founded by Anne Waldman and Allen Ginsberg with the aim of opening up discourse and fostering political engagement, these texts invoke issues of gender and race-based injustice, the global climate crisis, and our possible extinction. They weave through our poetic community, the conversations we are having, the issues we are facing--our "new weathers" to posit strategies of resistance.
