Author Reading | Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood: A Mongolian Monk in the Ruins of Qing Empire


After the fall of the Qing empire, amid nationalist and socialist upheaval, Buddhist monks in the Mongolian frontiers of the Soviet Union and Republican China faced a chaotic and increasingly uncertain world. In this book, Matthew W. King tells the story of one Mongolian monk’s efforts to defend Buddhist monasticism in revolutionary times, revealing an unexplored landscape of countermodern Buddhisms beyond old imperial formations and the newly invented national subject. Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood takes up the perspective of the polymath Zawa Damdin (1867–1937): a historian, mystic, logician, and pilgrim whose life and works straddled the Qing and its socialist aftermath, between the monastery and the party scientific academy. With author Matthew King.

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.

What happens to a memory that two people share after one of those people is gone? Presented by Untitled Theater Company.

Lecture | Trapped in the Maze: Family Multi-Institutional Involvement, Poverty, and Inequality


Family multi-institutional involvement and its influence on social inequality are relatively understudied phenomena. Using qualitative data from 2011-2017 on 63 primarily low-income families in NYC, this project analyzes how families’ experiences in social control institutions (e.g., courts, hospitals, child welfare, public assistance, schools) exacerbate inequality. Analyzing these experiences requires extending previous conceptualizations of family institutional involvement beyond one generation or household.  Speaker Leslie Paik is an associate professor of sociology at The City College of New York.

Opening Reception | Memento: Dejected Glory of Rock 'n' Roll


Oh no love, you're not alone', David Bowie pleads to the melancholy artist trudging the streets in 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide', the smudged lyrics of which are chalked onto a blackboard in Memento. Bowie both sees and mourns the self-destruction and understands the lacerating shadows that an artist must live and work with in order to create something immortal. The paintings of Andrew Dykes reinterpret iconic portraits of great stars who struggled with self-destruction and in many cases were overpowered by it to the point of death. There is irony in the contrast between the resilient, creative self-invention (and re-invention) of artists and the way in which, after death, their images are re-interpreted as symbols of a latent tragedy.

Opening Reception | Steve DeFrank: Recent Works:


An exhibition of recent works by faculty member and alumnus Steve DeFrank. DeFrank has prepared the following statement about his work: "I’m a queer man making queer paintings in a post-gay art world. We are at a crossroads with the heterosexualization of gay culture. Assimilation dampens identity; the shift of societies (some, not all) to integrate gay folks and their culture is a loss as well as a gain. There is a cost for having a more homogeneous world, a more homogenous art world, a blandness that feels very dry. Queer demands to be seen. The paintings share a dandified staging, a restrained fantastical flamboyance, with a modernist sensibility.  I am synthesizing abstraction and a cartoony queer comic figuration. This dualism in the paintings contributes something that is secondary to the work but something it couldn’t exist without. That tension keeps me on the edge."

Author Reading | The Hadley Academy for the Improbably Gifted: Whisked Away


Jack Carlson is suffering through another awkward school day when he suddenly finds himself transported to the Hadley Academy, a secret institution that tracks teens with unlikely gifts and trains them to protect the world from a secret squad of killers. But Jack isn’t the only one who doesn’t know what he’s doing at Hadley. Despite indications that he is the one prophesied to end the ancient Reaper War, Jack appears to have no extraordinary abilities. Author Conor Grennan used to live in Kathmandu, Nepal, where he rescued trafficked children and reunited them with their families in remote mountain villages. He wrote a book about those adventures called Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal.

Opening Reception | The Pencil Is a Key: Drawings by Incarcerated Artists


An exhibition of more than 140 drawings by imprisoned artists from around the globe. Featuring works produced over a roughly two-hundred-year period, the exhibition presents powerful evidence of the persistence of human creativity in the most inhumane of circumstances. For each of the incarcerated artists represented in The Pencil Is a Key, the act of putting pencil to paper is a vehicle through which they proclaim their individuality and measure their humanity against systems of repression. Together, their drawings are containers of memories, records that bear witness, tools for survival, weapons in the fight for justice, and portals to a better future.

Concert | There’s a better life and you think about it, don’t you?: Celebrating Labor Organizing


A joyous evening of singing and celebration featuring vocal and choral performances that share the spirit of Ruth Ewan’s commission Silent Agitator. Ewan’s commission is a giant clock based on an illustration originally produced for the Industrial Workers of the World labor union by the North American writer and labor activist Ralph Chaplin that reads “What time is it? Time to organize!” Building on this history, the performers in There’s a better life and you think about it, don’t you? use music to relieve the fatigue of organizing and celebrate labor rights victories, activists, and historical movements. Tayo Aluko will perform excerpts from his one-person show, Call Mr. Robeson, about the life and times of the singer and activist Paul Robeson; the Sing in Solidarity Chorus will sing a selection of their original choral arrangements for lyrics from the IWW’s Little Red Songbook; Lynn Marie Smith will bring her energetic covers of pop songs recast with labor organizing lyrics; NYC Labor Chorus will sing selections from their repertoire developed over the last 28 years of singing together; and Brooklyn Women’s Chorus will sing works including “We Were There” that speak to the central role of women in labor organizing. Morgan Bassichis will host the evening. Additionally, there will be live silk-screening of vintage IWW posters available on-site, provided by Shoestring Press.

An overview of Lynn Stern’s work, this exhibition features prints from 18 of her 24 series of photographs, tracing the increasing abstraction of her imagery. From the interior spaces of the early Interior Light series in which she thinks of “the architectural planes as vehicles that make the light reverberate,” to the in-progress Mystic Light series, her goal is to “make the light palpable.”

Lecture | Narratives of Solidarity and Inequality: Social Class and Ethical Value in Argentina


CUNY professor Sarah Muir will examine middle-class narratives of ethical awakening in the aftermath of Argentina’s 2001-2002 financial crisis. These narratives helped orient middle-class volunteers toward the ethical value of inter-class solidarity, while also echoing the very patterns of racialized and classed inequality the narrators sought to overcome. Tracing this paradoxical dynamic, Muir will show how discourses of solidarity can unintentionally create new forms of distinction, hierarchy, and exclusion.

Opening Reception | Gymnasium: New Wall Painting


In this new wall painting, Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi (b. 1980, USA) continues to work with key themes and imagery from an ongoing series of paintings titled Gymnasium. Elite gymnastics occupies a powerful symbolic position in the public imagination—the human body performing at, and sometimes seemingly beyond, the limits of the possible. The gymnasium is a stage where dramas are enacted under a gaze of intense scrutiny. Gymnasts become actors, producing layered narratives of far-reaching metaphorical and political significance. One of the most personally affecting narratives in the recent history of the sport has been that of the precarious position of the Black body in traditionally white spaces.

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.
