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.

While there has been significant growth in studies about ‘multiracial’ (or ‘mixed race’) individuals – that is, the children of so-called interracial unions – very few studies have investigated the experiences of people who are the descendants of multiracial individuals (such as the children or grandchildren of multiracial people). As ‘mixing’ continues in many societies, and down the generations, what are the social, political and theoretical implications of this?

When it comes to climate change, the work of scientists is conclusive: in the past half-century, that work has produced a widely accepted consensus that the planet is warming and that humans are responsible. Though scientists must continue to monitor the amount of warming and to track its effects, climate change is a complex problem whose unfolding will reach beyond such analysis. Recognizing this, scholars in fields other than the natural sciences have recently begun to mobilize their disciplinary expertise to respond to climate change. How can we use that study to imagine the transformations and losses of climate change? How can we make concrete the challenges that humans will face in the next century? How can we grapple with the ethical issues presented by a problem whose most intense effects will be experienced by populations other than those most responsible for planetary warming? How can we inspire people in the present to create a different future, to slow warming, or to mitigate its effects?

Alain Willaume’s unusual photos evoke a ghostly undercurrent in our everyday lives. Depicting lone and meditative figures in barren landscapes and dusty roads, they highlight the fractures in the places we call home. Working outside of the mainstream and of the traditions of documentary photography, Willaume creates an arresting personal cartography of engaged metaphors and enigmatic imagery. His haunting body of work evokes the lurking violence and vulnerability in the world as well as in the human beings who inhabit it.

Hara's square color snapshots involve no noticeable high drama. Her portraits - men and women, adults, adolescents, and children - are often alone hovering in the bay of everydayness: a schoolgirl at a train platform, mother and daughter asleep in a subway car, a middle-aged woman sternly looking off-camera. Although these scenes were shot in Tokyo and its suburbs, the settings and activities have an ambiguous quality, the images evoke emotion and mood through nuanced facial expressions and body language.

The black and white photographs featured in this exhibition were first shown in the Graphics Department of the Princeton University Library and some were bought by the Museum of Modern Art, NYC. The portraits and landscapes of Italian life during that year, primarily of Rome but also of the South and Sicily, give us a glimpse into the heart of a country at the cusp of profound industrial and political change. With two m-3 Leicas, several lenses and a light meter, Wurmfeld spent 1964 living in Trastevere exploring the city and the surrounding countryside. A strong graphic sense and an eye for the revealing detail are distinguishing characteristics of this body of work.

Sonhouse's subject is the African American male within Western culture. In Masked Reduction, he continues his focus on the figure, more specifically, the African American male portrait, drawing inspiration from media images as well as the long history of portraiture, and employing a visual language he's developed over the years. Repeated and edited over time, these characters have become his own. Jeff Sonhouse was born in New York in 1968. He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York in 1998 and his MFA from Hunter College, New York in 2001. His work has been included in exhibitions such as Frequency and The Bearden Project, at The Studio Museum in Harlem in 2005 and 2012 respectively; 30 Americans, at the Rubell Family Collection, Miami in 2009 which traveled widely throughout museums across America through 2016; and Face to Face: Los Angeles Collects Portraiture, at the California African American Museum, Los Angeles in 2017.

Discussions will be led by moderators Bernard Harcourt and Jesús Rodriguez-Velasco with invited guest scholars. This session will examine the historical concept of "revolution" and explore the political consequences of conceptualizing revolution in different ways.

What happens when we shift our way of engaging with photography? When we go beyond looking at images and, instead, listen to them? Tina Campt, director of the Center for Research on Women, delves into lost archives of historically dismissed photographs to deepen our understanding of the lives of black subjects throughout the black diaspora. Campt invites us to open our ears to photographs of rural African women in the late 19th century and 1960s mug shots of the Freedom Riders, and to hear in them the quiet intensity and quotidian practices of refusal. Originally intended to dehumanize, police, and restrict their subjects, these photographs convey the low hum of resistance and subversion, and the anticipation of a boldly imagined and more just future. With Tina Campt, Rizvana Bradley, Nicole Fleetwood, Jack Halberstam, and Deborah Thomas.

Fueled by the belief that classic jazz feeds the heart and soul, the Hot Sardines are on a mission to make old sounds new again and prove that joyful music can bring people together in a disconnected world. Music first made famous decades ago comes alive through the group’s brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and vocals from a chanteuse who transports listeners to a different era. The band has performed more than 150 tour dates from Chicago to London, released two albums to critical raves, earning a No. 1 slot on the iTunes Jazz chart in the U.S. and internationally. 6 pm - swing class with Paolo Pasta Lana 6:30 pm - concert

Thesis positions the architectural studio as a space for the exploration, experimentation and production of new forms of knowledge and design innovation. In a semester-long endeavor of architectural research, students both negotiate and interrogate a vast range of issues with complex and often contradictory impulses, particular to the advancement of disciplinary knowledge. Inevitably, it is a leap into the void, an exploration of the uncharted territories where architectural research dwells. A leap into the unknown entails an instance of suspension on the rational to embrace the irrational. This temporary suspension of reason is necessary to challenge the grounds of our architectural clichés. This "leap" has yielded 13 projects across 5 continents, negotiating erotic desires, social struggles, environmental decadences, paranoid secrecies, material instabilities and political folly. The work is deeply personal and provocative, as many students take their theses "home," to research local conditions in familiar sites all over the world, perpetually confronting questions of tradition, difference and architectural particularity with global concerns.

Jessica Benjamin, author of the path-breaking Bonds of Love, expands her theory of mutual recognition and its breakdown into the complementarity of "doer and done to." Her innovative theory charts the growth of the Third in early development through the movement between recognition and breakdown, and shows how it parallels the enactments in the psychoanalytic relationship. Benjamin’s recognition theory illuminates the radical potential of acknowledgment in healing both individual and social trauma, in creating relational repair in the transformational space of thirdness.

On September 14, 1867, the Börsenblatt des deutschen Buchhandels (the German book trade's bulletin) informed its readers about the publication of Karl Marx’s major opus, Capital, Volume I: The Process of Production of Capital. Exactly 150 years after this historic date, celebrate the anniversary of this influential publication. Preeminent Marxist scholar David Harvey will discuss the context of the publication of Capital as well as the book’s relevance to theory and movements from 1867 to 2017. Harvey will be joined by Ajay Singh Chaudhary of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research and another guest. Why was Capital so influential? Why has it maintained its relevance? What have we learned since its publication and how can that strengthen our understanding of the book’s core theoretical message? How does Capital help us comprehend the world we live in and make it a better one for future generations? These are some of the questions that our experts will debate. The discussion will be followed by a reception.

More Art premieres NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century by Andrea Mastrovito, a spectacular, hand-animated, silent film that combines music and community engagement to create a powerful and poignant statement about the horrors of the unknown and the inspiring search for liberty. Resetting Friedrich W. Murnau’s classic 1922 film Nosferatu in contemporary New York City, Mastrovito and his team of 12 artists have created over 35,000 original drawings to replicate the beautifully eerie flickering shutter effect of early cinema. The reimagined storyline and title-cards of NYsferatu were made in collaboration with recent immigrants and English as new language learners. The film is accompanied by musical improvisations by The Dick Valentine Vampyre Jamboree featuring Dick Valentine of Electric Six and James Wells and Quinn English of The Gay Blades.

When we experience trauma, the psyche’s survival strategy is often to suppress difficult feelings in order to carry on, but this takes its toll on the soul. Traditional shamans view this “soul loss”—the wounding of a person’s spirit as a result of trauma, often at an early age—as a leading cause of physical and psychological dysfunction. The shamanic approach to healing this condition, know as soul retrieval or soul mending, is to journey into the inner spirit world, retrieve the lost part of the soul, and reintegrate it into the psyche to return to wholeness. In this class, we’ll learn shamanic techniques for traveling to the spirit world, diagnosing soul-loss symptoms, developing the ability to “see” the source of our own and others’ traumas, and performing soul retrieval.
