The exhibition explores the confluence of art, love, science, and religion in the extraordinary art of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America’s first female scientific illustrators. White exhibited a prodigious scientific mind and abundant artistic talent at an early age. The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband’s many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband’s many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy. A tour of led by museum gallery guides.

The rich traditions of accompanying a solo voice with a single viol in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Italy and England have been overshadowed in modern practice by accompanying the voice with plucked instruments.

Lyracle is a new ensemble dedicated to historic performance practices featuring voice and viol-family instruments. Founders Ashley Mulcahy, mezzo-soprano, and James Perretta, viola da gamba, met as undergraduates at the University of Michigan School of Music and have collaborated for the past 6 years.

Emily Dickinson belongs to that class of artists who continuously challenge interpretation through the magnitude of their vision. Her astoundingly original poetry continues to disturb, delight, intrigue, and challenge us today. In this seminar, Jerome Charyn presents a revisionary picture of the great poet in ways that challenge received opinions: as a woman who was deeply philosophical, intensely engaged with the world, and attracted to members of both sexes. Music figured prominently in Dickinson's poetry. The seminar will address the use of musical imagery in her poems.

Connotations of union workers, along with denotations of art, has led Local #1 Ironworker and artist Anthony Adcock to create works that generate experiences similar to that of a job-site, mimicking specific moments of the construction process via Trompe l'oeil painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, and video. The illusionistic quality of his artwork allows viewers to consider the work as found objects or ready-mades, generating questions of authorship and production. His hyperreal paintings and sculptures may be easily overlooked despite the hundreds of hours required to create.

This exhibition shares the artist’s singular vision with visitors, mining her profound and often playful approach to the physical and material experience of art, which elucidates a deeply human understanding and unique reframing of geometry and abstraction.

Truth & Beauty: Charles White and Friends reflects on the five decade career of Charles White and traces the trajectory of his most influential relationships forged in and around Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Mirroring the defining work created during these phases of his life, the friendships that White cultivated in each of these cities is a testament to his lasting significance and legacy as an artist, activist and educator. The exhibition represents the artist’s formative years in Chicago’s South Side, where he attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was deeply involved in organizations like the Art Crafts Guild and The South Side Community Art Center. It also evidences the impact White had on artist communities and institutions in New York, Mexico, and Southern California, including the Art Students League, 306 Studio, the Harlem Artist’s Guild, and the Spiral Group.

We are living at a time when scholars around the world are under attack, just as when the original University in Exile was established in 1933 to save academic victims of Nazism during World War II. In our own day, universities have once again been shuttered or destroyed; many scholars have been purged from their faculty positions; others seek safety from conflicts that have riven their countries. The New University in Exile Consortium (New UIE Consortium), is an initiative created to confront today’s surging threats to scholars around the world. The New UIE Consortium is a group of like-minded colleges and universities, each of which is committed to hosting at least one endangered scholar. The founding member institutions are: Barnard College, Brown University, Columbia University, Connecticut College, Georgetown University, George Mason University, The New School, Rutgers University - Newark, Trinity College, and Wellesley College. This event will feature distinguished speakers—witnesses to the dangers of authoritarian governments and wars around the world—in conversation on the protection of scholars and other refugees. It will also feature comments by some of the endangered scholars themselves who will be hosted at New UIE Consortium institutions. Speakers include: -- Kati Marton, Hungarian-American author and journalist; award-winning former NPR and ABC News correspondent; human rights activist -- David Miliband, President and CEO, International Rescue Committee; former Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom -- Moderator: T. Alexander Aleinikoff, University Professor, Director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility -- With remarks from Michael Ignatieff, President and Rector of Central European University; Canadian writer, teacher and former leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

"Not since Paul Zindel’s classic The Pigman have we seen such a unique bond between people who might not look twice at each other in real life. This small, mighty novel offers proof that they should.”—People, Book of the Week Arthur, a widower, meets Maddy, an angry and friendless teenage girl, while visiting his late wife at the cemetary, where he goes every day for lunch. Against all odds, the two strike up a friendship that pulls them out of a serious rut. They band together with Arthur's nosy neighbor Lucille, to create lives that are truly worth living. Proving that life's most precious moments are sweeter when shared, they go from strangers, to friends, to an untraditional but loving family. Elizabeth Berg is an American novelist. Since her debut novel in 1993, her novels have sold in large numbers and have received several awards and nominations.  Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

"Magisterial” according to the Washington Post, Anything That Burns You is the biography of Lower East Side's Lola Ridge, a trailblazer for women, poetry, and human rights far ahead of her time.Terese Svoboda takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Ridge's NZ childhood to the 1920s when she was at the center of Modernism, friends with William Carlos Williams and Marianne Moore, promoter of the careers of Hart Crane and Jean Toomer, and author of brilliant socially incisive poems. Although the NYTimes cited her as one of the most important U.S. poets, Ridge fell out of critical favor due to her impassioned verse that looked head on at the major social woes of society. Terese Svoboda is the prize-winning author of 18 books of fiction, memoir, poetry and translation.

The Carmignano Visitation, a unique masterpiece by one of sixteenth-century Italy’s greatest painters, Jacopo da Pontormo, will be seen for the first time outside of Italy in the exhibition, Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters, at The Morgan Library & Museum in New York (September 7, 2018, to January 6, 2019). Scientific analyses, undertaken in preparation for the recent conservation of the Visitation, offer new insights into the artist’s techniques, illuminating the processes that led to the creation not only of his highly original devotional works, but also of his exceptional innovations in portraiture. This lecture presents some of the research carried out for the exhibition, in an attempt to clarify the relationship between Pontormo’s drawings and paintings, the historical context in which the Visitation was created, and its connection to Florentine visual traditions. Speaker Bruce L. Edelstein is Coordinator for Graduate Programs and Advanced Research at NYU Florence.

Jazz |


A special presentation on Miles Davis’s music of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Already an innovator of bop, cool and modal jazz, 1968 found Miles in a rapidly changing musical and cultural world. With producer Teo Macero and renowned musicians like Tony Williams, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and George Benson, he began to explore contemporary rhythms and electric sounds, experiments that would lead to several records now considered classics and help give birth to jazz fusion.

Gallery Talk |


In anticipation of the occasion of the opening of Tracing Obsolescence, artist Dana Whabira discusses her artistic practice with writer M. Neelika Jayawardane and curator Evelyn Owen. In recent work, Whabira has used discarded dress forms, the last vestiges of Zimbabwe’s declining clothing industry, to explore alienated labor in the nexus of global migration, capitalism, and crises. These abandoned objects point to the rise of automation and the consequent fall of machinery, technology, and people that have become redundant or terminated.

Virginie Despentes's Pretty Things is the newest English-language book by French feminist Virginie Despentes, translated by Emma Ramadan. In this pulpy, psychological tale of two mismatched twins, the "perfect" sister Claudine commits suicide and wallflower Pauline hatches a scheme of her own. She pulls on her dead sister's identity, lives in her apartment, and reads her mail. But as the impersonation continues, Pauline slowly realizes that the cost of femininity is to dazzle on the outside while rotting away on the inside—and that womanhood is ultimately what killed her sister.  With: Emma Ramadan is a literary translator. She translates from Providence, Rhode Island, where she is also co-owner of Riffraff bookstore and bar. Alexandra Kleeman is the author of the story collection Intimations and the novel You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine, which won the 2016 Bard Fiction Prize.
