Topics will include the significance of pink clothing in western and non-western cultures (including India, Africa, Mexico, and Japan), the role of pink in eighteenthcentury portraiture, associations of pink with politics, gender, and sexuality, and the use of pink in cinema.

During this period Harlem was a cultural center, drawing writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars of African descent to the area. Over 25 cultural institutions and community-based organizations including the Apollo, Cathedral of St John the Divine, Harlem Stage, Jazz Museum of Harlem, Museum City of New York and others will introduce their venues and public programs.

Discussion | Shaping Contemporary Culture in Russia: The Yeltsin Center and the New Perspectives from Ekaterinburg


In recent years there have been significant developments in the cultural life of Russia. The general mission of the Yeltsin Center is to study and present issues surrounding the modern democratic society of Russia, its institutions, principles, laws, and customs, as well as to preserve and publicize the historical legacy of the first president of Russia, Boris Yeltsin. Among other things, the Center supports projects in the fields of education, culture, youth, humanitarian cooperation, publishing and literature. It represents a new type of cultural institution that deals not only with recent history but also delivers a broad range of programs, raising questions about the country's often difficult past, while also examining contemporary issues and matters. Dina Sorokina, director of the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Museum, and Lyudmila Telen, deputy executive director of the Yeltsin Center, in conversation with the makers of the film ProRock (2015), producer Anna Selyanina and director Evgeny Grigoryev.

Lecture | Yugoslavia, a Century Later: Why Did the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes Form a Union in 1918?


In late October 1918, a provisional state of Slovenes, Croats, and Serbs was proclaimed in Zagreb, with the aim of unifying soon with Serbia and Montenegro. Similar, pro-union manifestos were issued in Ljubljana and Sarajevo, while the Serbian army, together with its British, French, Italian, and Greek allies, had broken through the Salonika front in September and liberated much of Serbia by the end of October. Despite enormous challenges, sacrifices, and a catastrophic defeat, before the triumph of 1918, the Serbian leadership had generally pursued a pro-unification line through the war, as did exiled Croats and other South Slavs, of the London-based Yugoslav Committee. The proclamation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes on December 1, 1918 in Belgrade had the support of practically all relevant political, intellectual and religious groups. Yet, unsurprisingly perhaps, the Yugoslav unification today is often perceived as a naïve, catastrophic mistake if not a result of Serb/Croat manipulation or the Powers’ conspiracy. Was Yugoslavia not doomed to failure from the start, as its seemingly perpetual crises and the violent collapses in the 1940s and 1990s surely attest? With Dejan Djokić, Professor of History at the University of London.

Video | A Small Iridescent Sphere: Shridhar Bapat and New York’s Downtown Video Community


Almost completely forgotten today, in the early 1970s Shridhar Bapat was a key figure in New York’s downtown video community. A son of high-ranking Indian diplomats, he attended school in Geneva and London (where he was expelled from the LSE after the student uprisings in 1968), before moving to New York where he became one of the first people to organize video programming at The Kitchen and the Avant Garde Festivals of New York. He co-organized the first Women’s Video Festival there in 1972. His friends and associates included Charlotte Moorman, Shirley Clarke, Nam June Paik, Steina and Woody Vasulka. His own work was screened at the Whitney Museum, The Kitchen and the Mudd Club, but his personal life – he was an undocumented immigrant, a heavy drinker, and later became homeless – was troubled. He died in 1993. A Small Iridescent Sphere is an exploration of and tribute to a neglected part of the secret wiring of experimental New York. Featuring a number of Bapat’s rarely seen video works, it will be presented by Alexander Keefe, who writes about art, media and aesthetics in South Asia, in dialogue with Michael C. Vazquez, Senior Editor at Bidoun.

The artist Susan York hosts a slide talk about her work, followed by a walkthrough of the long-term installation.r. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York created replicas of parts of the museum’s foundation: irregular granite piers that protrude above the museum’s ground floor. Four graphite drawings, each mirroring the appearance of a pier, hang alongside York’s sculptural works, strengthening the ties between drawing and sculpture in her practice.

Lecture | Withdrawal: Reassessing America's Final Years in Vietnam


In a bold new interpretation of America's final years in Vietnam, acclaimed historian Gregory A. Daddis disproves these longstanding myths. Withdrawal is a groundbreaking reassessment that tells a far different story of the Vietnam War. Daddis convincingly argues that the entire US effort in South Vietnam was incapable of reversing the downward trends of a complicated Vietnamese conflict that by 1968 had turned into a political-military stalemate.

The central work on the program is Bartok's (1881-1945) iconic and revolutionary Fourth String Quartet (1928), a masterpiece of the 20th century. Momenta Quartet is joined by the Attacca Quartet to round out the program with George Enescu's (1881-1955) brilliant and virtuosic Octet for Strings, Op. 7, a passionate joyride that harnesses the energy and exuberance of youth with the power of eight musicians. Momenta Quartet has premiered more than 150 works, collaborated with over 200 living composers and was praised by The New York Times for its “diligence, curiosity and excellence.” In the words of The New Yorker, “few American players assume Haydn’s idiom with such ease.” Praised by The Strad for possessing “maturity beyond its members’ years,” Attacca Quartet was formed at the Juilliard Schooland made their professional debut in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. From 2011-2013 they served as the Juilliard Graduate Resident String Quartet, and for the 2014-2015 season they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. As stated by The Washington Post, “Mastery like this is scarce enough in quartets that have played together for decades.”

Concert | From ’70s psychedelic folk to Scandinavian melancholy


Program Lau Nau Wild/Captive Graham Lambkin and Áine O’Dwyer Cyclic Ancestry About the Program Wild/Captive is a new adaptation of Symphony Natura by Finnish artist Lau Nau, made for electronic drones and animal sounds, exploring the musical and ecological thematics of wilderness vs. captivity as well as the paradox inherent in representing the wilderness—taken captive through recording—in concert. Her organic music breathes the organic atmosphere of her seaside environment into influences from ’70s psychedelic folk to foster a distinctly Scandinavian melancholy. Alongside a cornucopia of acoustic instruments, electronics, toys, and everyday objects at her disposal, Lau Nau’s delicate soprano floats upon a spectral web between song and simple sound. Graham Lambkin and Áine O’Dwyer present Cyclic Ancestry, an amplified choreography that pays homage to Danish composer Henning Christiansen’s environmental concerns, set to a mutation of his sound work.
