Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: Jewelry and More


JB Blunk in a live conversation in celebration of the opening of JB Blunk: Muse, between Mariah Nielson, curator and the Director of the JB Blunk Estate and Blunk Space, and Elissa Auther, the Chief Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design. Many of the works on view were made by Blunk for his partner and muse Christine Nielson, as well as for family friends, in his studio on their property in Inverness, California. They include earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and belts, all realized with the material and formal character of the artist’s much larger sculpture. Informed by an unfaltering reverence for the natural world and his interest in ecology and primordial landscapes, Blunk took forms from antiquity and mysticism, reimagining them instinctively through sourced and salvaged natural materials.

Classical Music | Voice of Crumb Part 2 (In Person and Online)


The "expert and versatile musicians" (The New Yorker) of NOVUS NY celebrate George Crumb in two concerts entitled Voice of Crumb. In Part 2, Crumb's works are paired with those of Bela Bartok, who influenced the ground-breaking composer. Featured NOVUS performers include concertmaster Katie Hyun, Sandbox Percussion, and members of The Choir of Trinity Wall Street. Program George Crumb (1929 - 2022) American Songbook No. 1: The River of Life: Songs of Joy and Sorrow Bela Bartok (1881 - 1945) Divertimento George Crumb was an American composer of avant-garde contemporary classical music. Crumb's compositions are known for pushing the limits of technical prowess by way of frequent use of extended techniques. The unusual timbres he employs evoke a surrealist atmosphere which portray emotions of considerable intensity with vast and sometimes haunting soundscapes. His few large-scale works include Echoes of Time and the River (1967), which won the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Music, and Star-Child (1977), which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Classical Composition; however, his output consists of mostly music for chamber ensembles or solo instrumentalists. Bela Bartok was a Hungarian composer, pianist, and ethnomusicologist. He is considered one of the most important composers of the 20th century; he and Franz Liszt are regarded as Hungary's greatest composers. Through his collection and analytical study of folk music, he was one of the founders of comparative musicology, which later became ethnomusicology.

Lecture | Our Apocalypses: Religious and Literary Responses to Epidemics


In her recently published book, Clémence Boulouque surveys religious responses to epidemics, from Exodus to the coronavirus, and of literary descriptions of diseases, from Boccacio and Goethe to Camus and Octavia Butler. Functioning as social criticism, scriptures and literary texts allow us to engage with questions of collective guilt, collective mourning, and divine justice (or the lack thereof), and to grapple with the societal disruptions, persecution, and discriminations that illnesses create or expose. While some of the parallels with our current times are obvious, these texts also help us to nuance responses to past epidemics and to read them anew. Nos Apocalypses is thus an invitation to understand scriptures as literature and to contemplate the uses of religious imagination in order to ponder what brings us together when disaster strikes.

Discussion | Plastic People and the Musical Revolution of Czechoslovakia


Musicians Ivan Bierhanzl and Paul Wilson talk about their time playing for Plastic People of the Universe, the Czech rock band that helped topple the Communist regime of Czechoslovakia in the Velvet Revolution of 1989. The panelists will be joined by Sylvia Reed, who traveled with her husband, Velvet Underground's Lou Reed, to Prague and witnessed his encounters with Vaclav Havel, the first president of the Czech Republic. Rare archive footage from the 1970s and 1990s will also be shown. The Velvet Underground and its non-comformist ideology inspired Czech bands like Plastic People of the Universe, who were jailed for playing the same music Lou Reed freely performed in the US. The Plastic People of the Universe were considered to be the foremost representatives of Prague's underground culture from 1968 through 1989, which went against the grain of Czechoslovakia's Communist regime. Due to their non-conformism, members of the band often suffered serious repercussions, including arrests and prosecution, but its members continued to play underground concerts and spread the anti-conformist message that eventually helped end the Communist rule of Czechoslovakia in 1989. Seating is first come, first serve. Masks are encouraged.

Book Discussion | The Voice of the Rural: Music, Poetry, and Masculinity among Migrant Moroccan Men in Umbria (in-person and online)


Umbria is known to most Americans for its picturesque rolling hills and medieval villages, but to the many migrant Moroccan men who travel there, Umbria is better known for the tobacco fields, construction sites, small industries, and the outdoor weekly markets where they work. Marginalized and far from their homes, these men turn to Moroccan traditions of music and poetry that evoke the countryside they have left— l-’arubiya, or the rural. In this book, Alessandra Ciucci takes us inside the lives of Moroccan workers, unpacking the way they share a particular musical style of the rural to create a sense of home and belonging in a foreign and inhospitable nation. Along the way, she uncovers how this culture of belonging is not just the product of the struggles of migration, but also tied to the reclamation of a noble and virtuous masculine identity that is inaccessible to Moroccan migrants in Italy.

Talk | Artist Talk: Uncovering Histories


Yto Barada gives an artist's talk about her work. Barada is recognized for her multidisciplinary investigations of cultural phenomena and historical narratives. Engaging with archival practices and public interventions, Barrada’s installations uncover subaltern histories, and celebrate everyday forms of reclaiming autonomy. Informed by postcolonial thought and socio-political concerns, Barrada’s interests range from the tensions around borders, immigration, and tourism to the urban landscape, and from children’s toys to botany and paleontology. Her practice encompasses film, photography, sculpture, painting, printmaking, and publishing, while her installations often comprise both original work and found objects. Nonverbal communication, family myths, “hidden transcripts” that unearth new grammars—within the interlinked logic of Barrada’s work lie secrets, pleasures, and a celebration of strategies of resistance to domination.

Discussion | Winston Churchill and the British Empire Revisited (in-person and online)


Conventional wisdom holds that the British Empire was a largely benevolent affair, bringing with it an elevated civilization, rule of law and economic development to large areas of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Its most acclaimed prime minister, Winston Churchill, is sometimes labeled one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century. Two historians now challenge this orthodoxy and paint a far more critical view of both the British Empire and Churchill.  Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Caroline Elkins’s new book, A Legacy of Violence: A History of the British Empire, has been called “a definitive rejoinder to persistent myths of liberal benevolence. A monumental achievement.”

Staged Reading | Cost of Living: Reading of Pulitzer-Winning Play and Discussion with Author Martyna Majok (online)


Welcome Martyna Majok, the playwright behind the 2018 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Cost of Living, which premiered on Broadway this fall season. Born in Poland and raised in New Jersey, Majok is a creative powerhouse with an impressive assembly of accolades, including the Lucille Lortel Award and Lanford Wilson Award, to her name. Deemed “immensely haunting” by The New York Times and “perfection” by the New York Theatre Guide, Majok’s masterwork tackles the biases and perceptions of those living with disabilities and explores the divisions set by class, race, and nationality that hinder our simple, innate desire to connect as people. Majok will be joined in conversation with Tony Award-winning director Rachel Chavkin (Hadestown) following a reading by actor David Zayas.

Concert | The Musical Heritage of Acclaimed Composer Karol Rathaus (In Person and Online)


Works by Friedman, Laks, Rathaus, Tansman, Waghalter, and Weinberg. Performed by Magdalena Filipczak, violin; Monika Gardon-Preinl, piano; Piotr Lato, clarinet; Grzegorz Mania, piano; Karolina Mikolajczyk, violin; Iwo Jedynecki, accordion. 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'.
