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.

Forum | US Interventionism and the Perils of Iranian Diaspora Activism


Since the early days of the Trump administration, numerous U.S. government officials have started to meet with many renowned Iranian opposition groups and activists in diaspora, and actively attempted to recruit them to create an image of a solidified Iranian opposition that seeks the support of the US in its alleged fight for democracy and human rights in Iran. The speakers of this panel will explore the socio-political impacts and legal pay-off of this meaningful shift of the Trump administration toward Iranian activists and dissidents in diaspora.  With: -- Abdee Kalantari, Iranian Freelance Journalist -- Saharnaz Samaeinejad, University of Toronto -- Saira Rafiee, Graduate Center, CUNY -- Setareh Shohadaei, New School for Social Research

Opening Reception | A Beautiful Woman Eating a Spinach and Artichoke Dip Quesadilla: Carpet Paintings


Jessica Campbell has created an installation cataloguing the convergence of multiple histories: painting, craft, weaving, posters, wallpaper, quilting, cartooning, photography and personal narrative. Building off an ongoing research project on historical feminist figures and collectives, this group of works draws on personal as well as historical memory and combines them to create compositions referencing traditional painting subject matter. Campbell utilises material born out of a craft tradition; collaged carpet referencing latch hook rug aesthetics. Thus, Campbell terms these “carpet paintings.”

Some are near-monochromatic compositions verging on abstraction, while others depict vaguely familiar vistas, including seascapes and wild forests, which are always painted from memory. All are built up with textured brushwork and grounded by an ever-present—if sometimes faint—horizon line that offers a perception of distance. In his “monochromes,” the artist applies paint to presaturated canvases, further blurring the notions of foreground and background. As he has noted, light and color are used to uncover a “sensation, a state of mind suspended within the medium of paint … that can’t be grasped through language because there aren’t sufficient visual elements to describe it.”

Opening Reception | Heavy Rag: Women's Work


Zoë Buckman’s first solo show with the gallery is explicitly linked to women’s work. Culled from deeply personal experience, the exhibition embraces the domestic archetype by balancing an ambiguity between vulnerability and strength. Occupying the three floors of the gallery, the bodies of work are interconnected by the manifestation of the artist’s relationship to physical spaces—the home, her mother’s kitchen table, the boxing gym.

Opening Reception | Heavy Sauce: Group Show


For this show, gallery artists were presented with a quotation by the artist Lee Lozano (1930–1999) as a starting point for a discussion about the physical, psychological, and sociological nature of New York City. In her NYC 1960s notebook, Lozano wrote: “Every day thousands of pounds of paint are applied to buildings in NYC, signs, benches, etc., which can only mean that the city is getting heavier and heavier.”

A solo exhibition of works by Mikiko Hara, an award-winning Japanese artist known for her square-format snapshot photography. In Hara's latest series Kyrie - the title of which is inspired by its mystic sound rather than its origin in Christianity - the artist's intuitive eye taps into hidden narratives behind seemingly mundane moments in the suburbs of Tokyo. Hara utilizes a classic film camera to unassumingly approach her subjects at close range.

Opening Reception | Linus Coraggio: Ramifications


A one-man show of sculpture, painting, and mixed media. Street artist and New York City native Coraggio is best known for his abstract metal sculpture. An ardent proponent of recycling, he uses materials that can be found in vacant lots or building sites across Lower Manhattan and the city’s outer boroughs. This use of found materials is an essential component of his process. Coraggio’s richly graphic, welded street constructions provided a 3-D counterpoint to the 2-D graffiti street art by contemporaries Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, as well as the masters of New York subway graffiti. Coraggio was a central figure in downtown New York’s early period of explosive art experimentation and cross-pollination of cultural ideas.

Opening Reception | My World Is in Your Blind Spot: Remembering Tibetans' Sacrifices


Tenzing Rigdol's exhibition consists of five large mixed-media panels. The central buddha silhouettes greet the viewer in their recognizable cross-legged seated positions--a posture often associated with meditation and peace--and with a stunning visual effect enhanced by the use of silks and fire imagery. But the composed aesthetic of the series belies the meaning behind it. The fires seemingly emerging from the bodies of the buddhas reference the over 155 Tibetans who have self-immolated since February 27, 2009. In an ultimate act of sacrifice, these Tibetans set themselves on fire with the hope of bringing attention to the oppression currently faced by their society under the imposed laws of the Chinese government. And yet, the buddhas can seem peaceful, even welcoming in their balanced postures, their calming presences perfectly harmonized by an artist well-versed in representing both destruction and construction. The contradictions on display in this exhibition are meant to challenge us. They are simultaneously safe and subversive: beautiful to look at, devastating to comprehend.

In these works, Mike Cloud speaks to the suffering of a series of named individuals, addressing their trauma within the language of abstraction. Collecting his new Hanging and Beheading Paintings, the show further elaborates the artist’s continuing exploration into painting’s intrinsic relationship to death. Cloud uses abstraction to offer the viewer an aesthetic account of individuality, death and the empathic space of communion in absence of the political mechanisms of personal, racial, cultural and gendered identification.

A series of pneumatic sculptural and moving-image works constructed of nylon fabric and powered by industrial fans, alongside painted “towel works,” and preparatory models. Paul Chan reconsiders the “bather,” a motif employed in compositions by artists like Matisse and Cezanne to express changing ideas of the body, pleasure, nature and society. For Chan, the “bather” in the 21st century is caught perilously between the pursuit of personal pleasure and suffering for social progress.

Opening Reception | Town and Country: Grand Yet Intimate Paintings


A solo exhibition by Rebecca Morgan includes new oil paintings on panel, grand in their detail yet intimate in scale, and never before shown busts, which elevate Morgan's characters into regal brass, with a meticulous surface of pimples, chest hair, and crooked teeth. This new work crystallizes Morgan's use of art history and Americana to build archetypal characters straining against their roles. Themes of women, fabricated notions of romance, and the current crisis of masculinity come to life in her exquisitely rendered works. Morgan's narratives exist simultaneously in the past and present. Buxom maidens echo women painted by men over the ages and current conversations about gender, revealing a fresh look at American myths.

Opening Reception | Who's Afraid of Verticality?: Hand-Forged Iron and Copper Sculptures


Who’s Afraid of Verticality? is comprised of eight hand-forged iron and copper sculptures. Demonstrative of Alain Kirili’s lifelong fascination with verticality, the selection traces an investigation of the subject in abstract sculpture and exhibits a subtle drive for aesthetic diversity. For five decades, the artist has cultivated a practice that embeds a formalist rigor with a humanist warmth. The exhibition is marked by an appreciation for abstract signs in three-dimensional space, one which spurs a dialogue with high relief that Kirili views as being a celebration of life, or la joie de vivre.

Lecture | Original Copies: The Pre-History of the Facsimile


Called "the nightmare of book collectors" by John Carter and Nicolas Barker, facsimiles do not hold a particularly revered position in bibliography and book history. The opposite of the venerated "original," facsimiles are seen as a compromise at best and a downright deception at worst. This talk looks to re-examine the idea of the facsimile by exploring its pre-history in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Before the invention of lithography and photography in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (not to mention current advances in digital reproduction), scholars and printers employed creative technical strategies to reproduce the visual qualities of particular textual artefacts like inscriptions or manuscripts. Exploring a few case studies, this talk will think about how and why early print copied material objects that came before - and, in the process, rethink and expand our understanding of what facsimile means. Speakers include Jane Raisch, University of York

Author Reading | Everybody Wants to Go To Heaven but Nobody Wants to Die: A Disscussion About Healthcare System


Over the last 60 years an unprecedented revolution in healthcare has helped millions of Americans benefit from advancements in areas such as gene editing, reproductive technology, and organ transplants—but what about the legal and ethical challenges posed by continuing evolutions within medical science? And why in this country today do we pay far more for health care while having among the lowest life expectancies and highest infant mortality of any affluent nation? Amy Gutmann, the president of the University of Pennsylvania, and Jonathan D. Moreno, a renowned professor of medical ethics and health policy, both served on President Obama’s bioethics commission. Their new book, Everybody Wants to Go To Heaven but Nobody Wants to Die blends history and public policy to examine some of the most fundamental challenges faced in the American healthcare system. They speak with The New Yorker’s David Remnick about the American paradox of wanting to have it all without paying the price.

75 min. Writer, Director: Callie Nestleroth. Performer: Sara Page. Meet with Cathy Earnshaw in her world from Emily Bronte's classic tale Wuthering Heights, and be taken by her on a journey that goes beyond the confines of her book. Whether from the many film adaptations, or Kate Bush's singular song, Cathy and Heathcliff are infamous characters. But do we ever consider the effect they have on those who learn their story? Oh Heroine How I Love You! transports you into the book and onto the Moors, to voyage with Cathy in this interactive one-woman show. A ghostly character, Cathy's grasp of her reality is fraught, and as she catapults between worlds the audience is taken along for the ride. You feel as if you are reading a book that has come to life around you and in being immersed in her world are called upon to assist this character who is lost in her own adaptations. In learning who Cathy is, we learn who Emily Bronte is, and unlock this enigmatic author with questions about feminist agency and the ownership one has to tell their own story.
