Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Discussion | Parisian Fashion and its Global Influences: Appropriations, Circulations and Transfers


The Parisian fashion industry has always been the visible tip of an invisible web of exchanges. What we call French couture, far from being only French and influenced by French creativity and know-how, has always been a microcosm of globalization, with crucial contributions from foreigners and immigrants, transfers and hybridizations of techniques, ideas, styles, consumption habits, etc., which are often written off. These exchanges have constituted the sine qua non condition for the boom of the fashion industry. With: Rhonda Garelick (Art and Design History and Theory, Parsons School of Design), Sophie Kurkdjian (Institute of French Studies), Victoria L. Rovine (Art History, UNC Chapel Hill), and Valerie Steele (The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology).

Taking flight with and from Professor Siraj Ahmed's book, this roundtable provides occasion to address the long roots and deep impact of colonialism as it shapes and figures how and with what consequences we conceptualize and study language(s). How can we understand the work that we do in the study of human expressive practices in light of the foundational role of colonialism this book excavates? What are the parameters and practices of a decolonized humanities in light of the acknowledgment of these colonial foundations? Panelists Shoumik Bhattacharya, Soojung Choe, and Catherine Engh will be joined by Ahmed, who will offer both an overview of the book and responses to their remarks, as we engage such questions as these.

Author Reading | Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race, and Gender in Black Women’s Speculative Fiction


Dr. Sami Schalk’s book traces how black women’s speculative fiction complicates the understanding of bodyminds—the intertwinement of the mental and the physical—in the context of race, gender, and (dis)ability. Bridging black feminist theory with disability studies, Schalk demonstrates that this genre’s political potential lies in the authors’ creation of bodyminds that transcend reality’s limitations. A reception will follow.

Author Reading | My Butch Career: Memoir of an "Anti-Girl"


During her difficult childhood, Esther Newton recalls that she "became an anti-girl, a girl refusenik, caught between genders," and that her "child body was a strong and capable instrument stuffed into the word 'girl.'" Later, in early adulthood, as she was on her way to becoming a trailblazing figure in gay and lesbian studies, she "had already chosen higher education over the strongest passion in my life, my love for women, because the two seemed incompatible." In My Butch Career, Newton tells the compelling, disarming, and at times sexy story of her struggle to write, teach, and find love, all while coming to terms with her identity during a particularly intense time of homophobic persecution in the twentieth century.

Film | The Ornament of the World (2018): When Muslims, Christians and Jews Transcended Their Differences


The Ornament of the World tells a story from the past that’s especially timely today: the story of a remarkable time in history when Muslims, Christians and Jews forged a common cultural identity that frequently transcended their religious differences. Ornament will retrace a nearly 800-year period in medieval Spain, from the early 8th through late 15th centuries, during which the three groups, though they competed and sometimes fought, managed for the most part to sustain relationships that enabled them to coexist, collaborate and flourish.

Screening | Korean American Film Festival New York


Since 2007, the Korean American Film Festival New York has moved across diverse platforms to present the richest exhibition of the hidden intersections of global culture. During the first decade, KAFFNY focused on applying a proactive form of cultural awareness to films of the Korean diaspora. Under the new theme of "Infinite Cinema," the festival has expanded the cinematic dialogue to those artists who recognize a necessary deference to humanity. This year's shorts program features films that challenge the limits of national, cultural and gender boundaries. The screening will also include the trailers of officially selected feature films of the year. There will be a post-screening Q&A with local filmmakers and the festival representatives.

Play | Vaclav Havel's Audience: Manager and Employee Square Off


Audience centers on a meeting between brewery manager Sladek and employee Vanek. While the manager is clearly opening too many beers and inducing binge drinking, it is less clear what he wants from Vanek. Audience (1975) is the first of Vaclav Havel's partly autobiographical one-act plays known as the "Vanek Trilogy" (followed by Protest (1978) and Mistake (1983)) based on his experience of being subject to forced work while under constant harassment from the Communist regime. Since the plays were banned in then-Czechoslovakia, they were performed in people's living rooms and even recorded on vinyl. After the play, there will be a talkback and an afterparty.

Play | To Life: Meet the Rosens


The Rosen family, battered and blessed, celebrates Jeffrey’s life as their hearts lie gasping on the floor. Backs are turned and accusations hurled as the Rosens come together and fall apart, bound by heartbreak and humor. Nobody escapes a good kick in the tuchas as they expose their foibles, confront their fears, and cling to their fragile connection amidst the chaos. The story is both elegy and eulogy to the death of a family and reminds us that we’re not alone. Written by Eve Lederman.
