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.

Lecture | Music and Human Rights


The connection between music and human rights remains relatively unexplored in theory, but in practice, musicians, and artists in general, are found at the forefront of human rights pursuits. Harnessing the power of a fundamental form of human expression, musicians are poised to make unique contributions to the human rights agenda, and advance its core principles of dignity, respect, and self-determination. This discussion will open conversation on ways to further advance human rights through music and the arts and will address lessons learned from this pursuit. Speaker Justin Jalea is currently pursuing a law degree at McGill University in Montreal.

Talk | Artist Talk: A Research Practice of Metaphysics


Virginia Lee Montgomery (b. Houston) is a filmmaker, sculptor, and facilitator. Working across video, performance, sound, and sculpture, her artwork is a research practice of metaphysics. Its content is surreal, latently autobiographical, and often with a feminist impulse. The work is paradoxically cryptic and literal, conceptual and hand-built, digital and physical. While her artwork shifts in subject matter from ponytails to particle accelerators, syrups to stones, VLM deploys an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary of repeating gestures like drilling, dousing, or reaching and recursive symbols like circles, spirals, spheres, and holes. Her movements interrogate the complex relationship between physical and psychic structures—revealing matters of being, knowing, identity, space, and time.

Author Reading | Beige Is Not a Color: Bland is Anathema 


Bland is anathema to Carlos Mota. As he travels the world—from Lisbon to Tangier, India to Santo Domingo, New York to Paris—producing feature stories and ad campaigns for countless publications and companies, he exults in every spark of originality and creativity he sees. He not only documents his sightings with his camera but also collects images by a Who’s Who of interiors and architectural photographers. And in this volume, he has culled some 280 of his favorite images, all wholly different but all sharing one quality: the beauty of color, both literally and figuratively.

Opening Reception | Force of Nature: Narrative Photography


A solo exhibition of work by Hannah Wilke (1940-1993). With great passion and acuity, Hannah Wilke empathetically and provocatively transformed her relationships and personal experiences into her practice.  Her work has often been described as incorporating a wide emotional range, which undoubtedly stemmed from her determination to speak for a more complex narrative of sexual freedom and self-representation and against stereotypes and objectification.

Author Reading | The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna: Woman Tries To Survive In A Patriarchal Community


Names are powerful. Mariastella Fortuna enters the world bearing the name of a sister who died in childbirth, because her father, Antonio, refused to seek a doctor.  In 1920s Calabria, Mariastella struggles to fit in, plagued by the sense that her dead sister is haunting her. Her father moves to America, returning only to have more children with Mariastella's mother. Her brief encounters with Antonio, a difficult and imposing patriarch, confirm that marriage and motherhood are not for her. But when Antonio calls for the family to join him in Hartford, Connecticut, Stella finds that America may not offer the freedom she imagines.  The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna explores life in a tight-knit patriarchal community, and one Italian-American woman's struggle to find space in a new world. Debut author Juliet Grames will be joined by Julia Phillips, author of the acclaimed novel Disappearing Earth. They will discuss family, crime fiction, and the power of global stories.

Discussion | Concerning Measles: The Outbreak and Jewish Community Responses in New York City


Over the past year, New York State has experienced the worst outbreak of measles since the 1980s, with the majority of cases appearing in ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities. The community centered aspect of the measles outbreak has been a focal point of the media coverage, yet much of this coverage glosses over how we should understand such a "religious" identification. In this panel event, they aim to get beyond the headlines to consider a range of questions. To what extent and in what ways is this an "ultra-Orthodox" issue? How are the affected communities responding or mobilizing at the local level? What does vaccine hesitancy, and, more broadly, anti-vaxx activism signal? Is it a rightful exercise of freedom of religion? Or suspicion of the state? Both, more, or something else altogether? And, finally, how does this outbreak speak to the longer history of the relationship between minority communities and the institutional infrastructure of public health? With: -- Zackary Berger, Associate Professor of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University -- Alyssa Masor, Orthodox Jewish Community Liaison, Community Health Promotion, NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene -- Blima Marcus, Nurse Practitioner, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Adjunct Professor, Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing -- Michael Yudell, Associate Professor and Chair, Community Health and Prevention, Drexel University Moderated by: -- Ayala Fader, Professor of Anthropology, Fordham University

Goldie Goldbloom talks about her new novel. In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Surie is pregnant. Pregnant at fifty-seven. It is a shock. And at her age, at this stage, it is an aberration, a shift in the proper order of things, and a public display of private life. She feels exposed, ashamed. She is unable to share the news, even with her husband. And so for the first time in her life, she has a secret—a secret that slowly separates her from the community.
