Festival | Lower East Side Pickle Day


Fall is upon us, and with that is one of New York's most relished traditions, Lower East Side Pickle Day! The festival is a slice of the city's history, reminiscent of when the streets of the Lower East Side were lined with pushcarts peddling their goods and wares for sale to a neighborhood of immigrants from far and wide. Lower East Side merchants and Picklers from up and down the east coast will be lining Orchard Street, delivering the divine scent of brine. These vendors are offering cucs on sticks, ice cream churned with dill, and pickle chips fried to perfection. Attendees can also sample bites from the new Essex Market and taste of what's ahead with shops and eateries from the forthcoming Market Line. Pickle Day is a kid and kid-at-heart friendly event with free activities like giant games, coloring tables, and more. Dance all day to tunes by DJs from Louie & Chan! Snap a photo with friends in the free photo booth or strike a pose with our giant pickle mascot, Mr. Pickle himself!

As a way to advance this urgent discussion, we look at the precious and formidable resources represented by women's leadership and advocacy in philanthropy.

Author Reading | Remaking a Life: How Women Living with HIV/AIDS Confront Inequality


Northwestern professor Celeste Watkins-Hayes will discuss her new book for which she interviewed over 100 HIV+ women over a decade about the effects of their disease. What she found was remarkable: for many of these women, contracting HIV/AIDS gave them a new lease on life, in large part because their diagnoses gave them access to the social safety with the help of activists.

Performance | Dependency Graph 4: Performance Art


Dependency Graph 4 continues the performative collaboration between Black Rain and video artist Philip Vanderhyden. Black Rain's Stuart Argabright and Vanderhyden were introduced in 2012 while Vanderhyden was curating the exhibition Gretchen Bender: Tracking the Thrill. Their collaboration began with Argabright supplying sound for Vanderhyden's multi-channel video installations, leading to ongoing collaborations with Argabright and co-band member Soren Roi. The group will stage the most recent iteration of the 30-minute long set, employing a 12-channel bank of monitors and sound equipment to create a theatrical tableau in the gallery. Black Rain's post-industrial meta-music offers an improvised response to Vanderhyden's videos which explore themes of financial anxiety, developmental psychology, virtual reality and sexual gratification in a dreamlike, hypnotic tableau.
