Lecture | Immigrant Integration and Social Solidarity in Pluralist Welfare States


Social solidarity is a key element of redistributive welfare states. Such solidarity is, however, not a given and must be built through political, legal, economic and cultural means. Each of the agents of that solidarity has weakened over the past generation: social democratic parties, legislatures, trade unions, and the various institutions that create a shared national culture. With the austerity of neo-liberalism, the growth of migration of various sorts, and the emergence of identitarian politics, we have moved from “what belongs to whom” to “who belongs to us.” David Abraham of the University of Miami will review and assess each of these developments for Germany and for the U.S. and then examine the prospects for immigrant integration policies that might build or rebuild solidarity.

Opening Reception | the sound i saw: Photography with a Painterly Aesthetic


Approaching photography with a painterly aesthetic and leaving behind the standard practices of documentary photography, Roy DeCarava accepted the modernist challenge to understand the medium as an artistic expression and brought an entirely new vocabulary and thinking to the field. He defined his art, not as existing in the polarities of black and white, but as encompassing an infinite scale of gray tonalities, “sliding into each other,” creating new aesthetic challenges for his silver gelatin process.

Opening Reception | A New Vocabulary: A Designer's Career


A solo exhibition of the late American designer Wendell Castle (1932-2018). Throughout a celebrated career spanning six decades, Castle introduced new ways of looking at, thinking about, and making furniture. In doing so, he created a new sculptural vocabulary that defied categorization and became the cornerstone of his practice. Wendell Castle: A New Vocabulary brings together rare, early, formative pieces with key works from the last decade of Castle’s long career, during which time he realized a body of work of critical importance and boundless ambition. Both periods are represented by seminal works that are exemplary achievements of the decades that bookend the unparalleled oeuvre of one of America’s most iconic figures in design.

Opening Reception | As Above, So Below: Meticulous and Lovingly Rendered Figures


On the surface, Michelle Doll's meticulous and lovingly rendered figures represent the familiar touch between a couple, the closeness between a mother and child and intimate moments of ecstatic love. Beneath the surface lies a deeper esoteric purpose hidden in the wrinkles of vibrating flesh and the weight of the interwoven forms. Although the subjects are literally represented below as observed from above, her paintings are ultimately meditations on spiritual alchemy - an attempt to engage in the illumination of consciousness through the reconciliation of opposing spiritual and terrestrial energies. In this way her work can be viewed as a treatise on the divine connection between the microcosmic individual and the macrocosmic context to which all of us are a part of the universal whole. Her models are her close friends and family and there is a requisite trust and vulnerability between the artist and her subjects that is palpably visible in the compositions. These are real couples sharing moments of real love and tenderness with the artist, (and her audience). As Doll explains, "I want to live in a world where women and men feel loved, understood and nurtured by both giving and receiving love. Where intimacy feels natural and acceptable, it's the starting point for the greater understanding of human desire for acceptance and connection."

Opening Reception | Explorations: Adventures in Mark-Making


Joseph Meloy's work is an ongoing exploration in mark-making, and each piece is a transcription of a particular moment in time and space. As a visionary artist, Meloy's source material tends to come from within, as he channels energy and inclination into visible notations, which coalesce into dynamic compositions that provide the viewer a chance to see the otherwise unseeable Improvisation is a key element, and while he is the one holding the implement, his belief is that ultimately, the art comes from a place beyond himself.

Lecture | Data Colonialism and the Hollowing Out of the Social World


This talk will introduce the argument of the speakers’ new book, The Costs of Connection: How Data Colonizes Human Life and Appropriates it for Capitalism (Stanford University Press, August 2019) and foreground its implications for the social world and social knowledge. Nick Couldry and Ulises Ali Mejías argue that the role of data in society needs to be grasped as not only a development of capitalism, but as the start of a new phase in human history that rivals in importance the emergence of historic colonialism. This new "data colonialism" is based not on the extraction of natural resources or labor, but on the appropriation of human life through data, paving the way for a further stage of capitalism.

Author Reading | Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11


Kevin Tuerff became an American refugee on 9/11 when his trans-Atlantic flight was forced to flee US airspace and ultimately land in Gander, Newfoundland. A small town of 9,000 took in 7,000 from 90 countries for five days, providing compassion and basic needs. Kevin's true story is portrayed on stage in the character "Kevin T" (portrayed by actor Chad Kimball) in the Tony-award winning Broadway musical Come From Away. House of Anansi Press published Kevin's memoir, which shares how this experience in 2001 opened his eyes to the global migrant and refugee crisis.

Opening Reception | Eight Tide Jars: A Site-Specific Installation


Celebrate the work of artist Adam Silverman at the opening of his site specific installation Eight Tide Jars. Each of the eight wheel-thrown pieces on display began as a 25-pound extruded brick of industrially processed clay. They were each placed directly on the wheel head (rather than starting with a ball of clay, as is the norm). The top - and the majority - of the clay was then pounded into a ball and thrown from there, leaving a clear, integral square foot for the finished piece to stand on. Each piece typically spends at least a week on the wheel as it is slowly worked from a brick to a ball to a cylinder to an egg to a punched and pounded shadow of its original shape.

Author Reading | Why Karen Carpenter Matters: Finding a Voice in Suburban Pop


A tale of two Karens, Why Karen Carpenter Matters is a story of displacement in which Karen Tongson brilliantly reveals how those of us who live outside the narrow confines of white, cisgender, capitalist America found a home—and a voice—in the aural landscape of a seemingly quintessential white-bread, suburban American pop star—Karen Carpenter.

Through a series of prayers, invocations, and hymns, Syncope eulogizes those who have perished making Central Mediterranean crossings as well as collects first-hand accounts of those who have survived these perilous journeys.
