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.

Womxn challenges the prevailing patriarchal belief that women are a subset of men and the lack of intersectionality on traditional feminist movements and discourse around “women's issues.” At the height of mass incarceration, where approximately 2.3 million individuals are incarcerated, the conversation has been centered around the impact on men of color. Although that is a crucial conversation to have, it is important to discuss the rapid rate at which womxn are being incarcerated and marginalized as well. Through a series of conversations, we will challenge the notion of criminalization through an intersectional lens. We will discuss the impact mass incarceration has had on womxn, but also broaden the conversation of criminalization to include the different ways womxn identities are oppressed. Note: Each conversation will have a different group and topic (ex. reproductive justice, trans women, etc.)  Speakers:  Mariame Kaba, educator, organizer, curator and  Founder and Director of Project NIA and Co-founder of Survived and Punished; Miyhosi Benton, Associate with the Women and Justice Project; Myaisha Hayes, Community Organizer

Williams extends her longstanding interest in gender roles to the strangeness of feminine identity in our current moment. The works bring together a variety of painting techniques, including oil, airbrush, and the staining of raw canvas, resulting in lush, deeply textured works. The complexity and variety of the medium mirrors the layered narrative of the works themselves, reflecting the internal contradiction that Williams reveals in her subject.

This will assess the transformative potential in the architecture of urban housing in America in a challenging time. In the face of population growth, climate change, a degraded infrastructure, a material culture invested in superficial greenwashing and inequities in economic opportunity, a panel of prominent architects from various regions across the United States will gather to discuss the central issues of design that make urban housing successful. Following the lecture, there will be a brief conversation between Lawrence Scarpa of Brooks+Scarpa in Los Angeles and Dallas Morning News architecture critic Mark Lamster.

This presentation offers a retrospective view of the history of architectural conservation in Cairo. Blessed, or perhaps cursed, with an astonishing number and variety of historic structures, Cairo has served as a physical laboratory for different conservation approaches from the time of the foundation of the "Committee for the Conservation of Monuments of Arab Art" in 1882 until the present. The lecture addresses many of these approaches ranging from "honest repair" to "Disney-esque" fabrication, and looks behind them to motivations that vary from the aesthetic to the commercial. Recent attempts to quantify Cairo’s architectural heritage, to devise strategies for its economically sustainable re-use, and to expand the scope of preservation efforts to include late-19th and early-20th century buildings will also be discussed in the context of recent civil conflict.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. When did America lose its mind? If you follow Kurt Andersen's article in the The Atlantic's September issue, it was some time during the 1960s when "mainstream" culture, for better or worse, became increasingly suspect. To what extent has Andersen articulated our "post-truth" moment? Does he hit the nail on the head or fall woefully short?

British postmodernist architecture in the 1980s and 1990s looked ‘American’ to English eyes and many, including Charles Jencks, saw it as little more than a faint echo of a mainly New York or East Coast phenomenon. But quarter of a century later, it is becoming clear that British architects were drawing directly on their own Edwardian heritage. Timothy Britain-Catlin has spoken to the leading practitioners of the time and presents their architecture in a new light. Lecturer Timothy Brittain-Catlin is an architect who has been writing about architectural history for many years, both for a general readership and for those with an interest in the revolutionary changes in architectural thinking in early nineteenth-century England. He is deputy chairman of the 20th Century Society, and a member of the Southern Buildings Committee of the Victorian Society and the South East Regional Design Panel.

The use of data in communication disciplines like journalism, marketing, advertising, P.R., etc., is becoming widespread. News graphics have quickly become a popular feature in news media, and many organizations, like The New York Times and The Washington Post, have created departments devoted exclusively to dealing with data. Unfortunately, what is otherwise a positive phenomenon has also a dark side: the lack of knowledge that average citizens have about statistical reasoning opens the door for crooks of all ideological orientations to mislead them. The talk will cover strategies to verify sources, reason about data, and critically read graphics like charts, graphs, diagrams, etc. Lecturer: Alberto Cairo

Performance |
This commission commemorates Howard Zinn’s seminal book, A People’s History of the United States, with music and spoken word performances that will bring to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people in the book: those who built the movements that made the United States what it is today, ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight-hour workday, advancing women's rights and gay liberation, and struggling to right the wrongs of the day. Musicians, actors, and spoken word performers, including Staceyann Chin, Brian Jones, Ramon Rodriguez, Michael Ealy, Gaby Hoffmann, Geoffrey Arend, and activist Linda Sarsour, will bring to life original source materials from the rebels, dissenters, and visionaries of our past—and present. Anthony Arnove, coeditor with Howard Zinn of the Voices of a People's History of the United States anthology and author of the introduction to the new 35th-anniversary edition of A People's History of the United States, narrates.
