Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

Inequality is centre-stage in political debate both globally and in individual countries, being blamed for everything from Brexit and the rise of populism to stagnating wages and growth. This talk, based on the findings of a three-year research programme at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, University of Oxford, will seek to tease out why this is so and identify central unanswered questions about the drivers of inequality and what policy responses to it should be. Speaker Brian Nolan is Director of the Employment, Equity and Growth Programme at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, Oxford Martin School, Professor of Social Policy at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, and Senior Research Fellow at Nuffield College Oxford.

Discussion |
A "nature-nurture" debate is now taking place in the foundations of artificial intelligence. Advocates of deep learning, including Yann LeCun, hold that to create advanced artificial intelligence systems, general mechanisms for learning from the environment will play the most important role. Critics of deep learning, including Gary Marcus, hold that these systems will be limited unless they incorporate much more innate domain-specific machinery. This debate parallels a long-standing debate in the cognitive sciences between nativists, who hold that the brain relies on a great deal of innate domain-specific machinery, and empiricists, who hold that it relies mainly on general mechanisms for learning. Speakers: Yann LeCun (Data Science; Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research) Gary Marcus (Psychology; Founder, Geometric Intelligence)  A reception will follow the event.

Can populism exist independently of its mediation? And if media are involuntarily complicit in the spread of authoritarian populism specifically, what room do they have for resistance? In considering the role and responsibility of media users, professionals, and scholars in resisting authoritarian populism, this conference calls for an investigation of industries, markets, algorithms, networks, policies, technologies, and practices as they shape politics and media landscapes.

Madelon Jones (pictured) recent work again is primarily on paper. She has kept scraps from older works that were either trimmed or discarded and has repurposed them by cutting, shaping, and painting them and then building them onto her paper surface to create her images. She calls the show Dialogue since as each piece is made there is a Dialogue between the art and the artist. Pat Cresson's recent paintings (2016-17) are abstract oil impressions on wood panels of places, feelings, thoughts and visual impressions. Her new paintings are poetic and are influenced by nature, her travels, her teaching and her accumulative life experiences. The unique color, textures, and organic and geometric forms become a layered composition of detailed yet simple and direct expression.

James Rieck's newest body of work mines that euphoric moment of cognition...that split second when understanding and emotions are born. Using models extrapolated from 1950's and 60's commercial magazines, Rapture juxtaposes an idyllic midcentury moment of bliss spurred on by the artwork that is on public display. Rieck's compositions combine highly sexualized historical masterpieces with an overtly ecstatic viewer.

Interviews can be friendly, contentious, cunning, intimate. And encounters with reporters can shape how individuals feel about “journalism” or “the media.” So what does it mean for a reporter to treat someone fairly? What are reporters looking for from the people they interview? And what would it mean to take a user-centered approach to interviewing? Hear from three guests who have reflected on what it's like to be on both sides of the story. Moderated by: Blake Eskin, Assistant Professor, Journalism + Design  Guests: - Ray Suarez, Visiting Professor, Amherst College; former Chief National Correspondent, PBS NewsHour - Julia Dahl MFA ’04; novelist; reporter, CBS News  - Paul Ford, Contributor, Bloomberg Businessweek; co-host, Track Changes podcast

Romani people – Roma – have been migrating west for hundreds of years. The most recent wave of mass migrations from Central and Eastern Europe began in the 1970s and increased in the 1990s after the fall of the Communist regimes there. The situation of migrant Roma in Italy, whose number is estimated at around 75,000, has been particularly difficult, in large part because of the inadequate housing situation in many urban areas, where a substantial proportion of Roma still live in camps. This panel discussion will start with a screening of the short film Roma settlements in Rome (20 minutes, in Italian with English subtitles) and will then look at the situation in Italy. It will then consider, for comparison, the situation of Roma migrants in the USA from Macedonia, Bulgaria and Romania. Participants: Ion Dumitru, former officer for Orientation of Roma and non-Roma immigrants (Comune di Roma) David Forgacs, NYU Carol Silverman, University of Oregon

This Fannie Lou Hamer Centennial honors women of the Civil Rights Movement. Hamer set the pace for the Mississippi Freedom Movement in the 1960s, knocking down Jim Crow barriers to human rights, protesting the Vietnam War, and fighting American poverty. In South Carolina, Septima Clark pioneered the Grassroots organizing tradition with the Citizenship Schools. And in Newark, New Jersey and the Jim Crow North, the Black Women’s United Front established African Free Schools and insisted on women’s rights of self-defense against white terror, including rape. A panel of scholars and experts join this timely discussion, including Katherine Charro, Ashley Farmer, and Charles Payne.

An illuminating work of documentary theater, The Tar Sands Songbook asks us to reconsider our unseen relationships with oil. Creator Tanya Kalmanovitch knows these relationships all too well. Born in Fort McMurray, Canada, near the site of the Athabasca Oil Sands, the world’s largest bitumen reservoir, she made her decision to become a musician as a teenager because “it had nothing to do with oil.” Fort McMurray has since become a flashpoint of international clashes over energy, the environment, and the economy. Written in collaboration with director Cecilia Rubino, Kalmanovitch's polyphonic piece weaves together a chorus of actors' voices with an original, improvised score. The words of indigenous activists, engineers, heavy equipment operators, elders, oil patch workers, scientists, and those of her own family fuel discussions of our past and the powerful forces that shape our future. Run time is 75 minutes with no intermission.

It’s 2013, Obama has just been re-elected, and The Republican Party finally realizes it has a problem with race. In an attempt to win the 2016 presidential election, the GOP backs a candidate who is a mixture of every race on earth. Christopher Chen's wild and surreal comedy skewers all political parties to the point it becomes indiscernible of what is satire – and what is today’s frightening reality. This production is part of The College of Performing Arts' School of Drama New Visions Directing Festival.

He is the star of Adam Taub’s The Duke of Bachata, was featured in Alex Wolfe’s critically acclaimed documentary Santo Domingo Blues, and is on The Rough Guide’s “Bachata” compilation. A practitioner of palo and gaga, Soriano blends Afro-Dominican sacred traditions with bachata, imparting his music with down-to-earth spirit and danceability, preserving bachata’s roots and expanding on them.

In the Solitude of the Cotton Fields is a modern French classic by playwright Bernard-Marie Koltès (1948-89) that portrays the relationship between a dealer and a client. As directed by the innovative French director and sound artist Roland Auzet, in a new English translation by Judith Graves Miller, the action unfolds on the steps of the Kimmel Center’s Grand Staircase as an intense transaction between conflicting desires for drugs, love, connection, and a sense of existence. In Auzet’s production furtive exchanges are overheard by audience members equipped with headphones, allowing spectators to eavesdrop on the intimate, secretive, and transgressive negotiation of the deal. French composer, percussionist, and theater director Roland Auzet defines himself as a stage writer. An artist and performer with many interests and talents, Auzet received the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres from the French Ministry in 2007 for his remarkable body of work in contemporary music, circus, dance, opera, and theater.
