Conference | What Is Suffering Worth? Perspectives Across Disciplines on the Treatment of Victims


This interdisciplinary symposium explores a crucial but little-studied issue with growing importance today: what is the value of harm suffered by victims, whether of terrorism, crime or natural disasters. In law, politics, economics and public opinion, answers differ widely, and unequal treatment is the norm. Across the globe, victims evoke a range of feelings, from compassion verging on celebrations of heroism, to denial, anger, indifference and even repulsion. Those reactions translate into wide variations in legal and economic responses to their harm. The symposium will bring together experts to compare perspectives from the United States and France. They will be joined by professors of law, economics, history and philosophy. It will be held as part of the Matrice Memory Program, an international transdiscilplinary research program supported by the Government of France, and specifically a section of this program dedicated to memory of 11/13 terrorist attacks in Paris.

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.

They cover topics such as redefining the relationship between reality and rendering, questioning the plausible degrees of non-synthesis between architectural representations, developing collective sentient apparatuses for experiencing electromagnetic spectrum, blurring boundaries between air and architecture through experiments with translucency, living in symbiosis with plastics, questioning the screen as building facade, and interrogating the familiar by manipulating the architectural background.

Opening Reception | Amy Sherald: the heart of the matter...


Amy Sherald documents contemporary African-American experience in the United States through arresting, otherworldly paintings. Subverting the medium of portraiture to tease out unexpected narratives, she situates black heritage centrally in the story of American art and invites viewers to engage in a complex debate about accepted notions of race and representation. The individuals in her paintings are deliberately posed, dramatically staged, and assertive in gaze. Their expressiveness and the variations in their gestures, clothing, and emotional auras reinforce the complex multiplicities of African-American existence. The persistent sense of privacy and mystery maintained in Sherald’s work requires viewers to ponder the thoughts and dreams of those depicted.

Opening Reception | Blind Visions: Temporary Loss of Sight Yields 145 Drawings


An exhibit of drawings by author and artist Carlo Levi (1902-1975), made during a period of temporary blindness caused by diabetes. In 1973, while bedridden, he had a special wooden notebook built, with strings attached to the sides to help guide his hand when drawing or writing. He labeled it "Quaderno a cancelli" [fenced notebook], the name given to his final collection of prose and poetry (published posthumously by Einaudi in 1979) that virtually accompanies these blind drawings, produced with pencil, pastels and ballpoint pen. After Levi's death, the 145 drawings were purchased in Italy by Antonino Milicia, a farmer from San Pier Niceto (Messina, Sicily) living in Switzerland, and an acquaintance of the author's in Zurich during the 1960s. When Milicia left Switzerland and returned to his home town, he brought the works with him and stored them among hay and other papers. This exhibit features a selection of these works (some of which are figurative, others abstract), including five that have never been exhibited before.

Opening Reception | Past Presence: Masterful Photographs


Hiroshi Sugimoto’s masterful photographs exemplify both the craftsman’s will to visual beauty and perfection, and an incisive exploration of philosophical notions of space and time, imagination and reality, science and history. Drawing on the classical photographic tradition, Sugimoto creates distilled, meditative images which unite the concrete and abstract, and contain meaningful conceptual underpinnings which seek to materialize the ‘invisible realm of the mind’ and the unconscious. In his process, Sugimoto seeks to comprehend the nature of perception, exploring duration and temporality through photography, and an understanding of how radical shifts through the past enlighten the present.

A daughter’s moving homage to an extraordinary parent, The World According to Fannie Davis  is an unforgettable story about Fannie Davis—part bookie, part banker, mother, wife, granddaughter of slaves, Fannie became more than a numbers runner: she was a kind of Ulysses, guiding both her husbands, five children and a grandson through the decimation of a once-proud city using her wit, style, guts, and even a gun.

Author Reading | The Yellow House: History Of A Family House And More


Sarah M. Broom’s The Yellow House tells a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America’s most mythologized cities. The Yellow House expands the map of New Orleans to include the stories of its lesser known natives and demonstrates how enduring drives of clan, pride, and familial love resist and defy erasure. The author Sarah M. Broom will be in conversation and will sign books following the discussion. “This is a major book that I suspect will come to be considered among the essential memoirs of this vexing decade.” - Dwight Garner, NYT Review

Discussion | Just Do It: Documentaries and Documenting Modern Architecture and Engineering


Oral histories and film documentaries can be daunting projects that require the apparatus of library science and expert skill in grant-writing and persuasive fund-raising. Whether massive, multi-part series, intensely-focused portraits, or do-it-yourself videos, they capture images, interviews, and information that often would otherwise be lost. An expert panel that includes both the makers and subjects of the films and videos will discuss the value of documenting stories of modern architecture and engineering. The program will feature a discussion, illustrated by excerpts from several documentaries: speakers include Leslie E. Robertson, subject of the 2018 film “Leaning Out - An Intimate Look at Twin Towers Engineer Leslie E Robertson,” James Sanders, co-writer of the Emmy Award-winning PBS series New York: A Documentary Film, architectural historian Annice Alt, who created a video interview of architect Richard Roth, and Museum Director Carol Willis. Richard Roth will join the discussion via Skype from his home in Florida.

Poetry Reading | Live Oak, with Moss: Walt Whitman's Previously Unpublished Love Poems


As he was turning forty, Walt Whitman wrote twelve poems in a small handmade book he entitled Live Oak, With Moss. The poems were intensely private reflections on his attraction to other men. They were also Whitman's most adventurous explorations of the theme of same-sex love, composed decades before the word "homosexual" came into use. This passionate cluster of poems was never published by Whitman and has remained unknown to the general public--until now. Iillustrator Brian Selznick offers a provocative visual narrative of "Live Oak, With Moss," and Whitman scholar Karen Karbiener reconstructs the story of the poetic cluster's creation.

Lecture | From A to B: Architecture as a Tool to Experience the World


Sofia von Ellrichshausen and Mauricio Pezo founded Pezo von Ellrichshausen in the southern Chilean city of Concepcion in 2002. The two believe that architecture is a form of knowledge that provides "a tool to experience, read, and eventually understand the world in which we live." They describe the sequence of design tools and methods that guide their work: "reading buildings by their 'spatial structure'; replacing the notion of form by 'format'; articulating rooms without interior; eroding the scale of things; doing austere buildings, hundreds of paintings, over and over again, 'no more no less'." Pezo and von Ellrichshausen will discuss several projects in Chile and beyond.
