Conference | The Climate Crisis, Global Land Use, and Human Rights


A daylong conference on the intersection between land use, the climate crisis and clean energy transition, and human rights. The climate crisis threatens to dramatically alter people’s relationships with the land on which they rely. Meanwhile, many climate solutions are themselves land-intensive, including solar and wind energy, carbon dioxide removal, and finding places for people displaced by climate change to live and grow food, thus potentially increasing competition for land. This conference will analyze the critical role that land plays in achieving climate solutions, the degree to which climate change may impact land’s ability to provide a sustainable ecosystem, and the ways in which these land and climate interactions might affect land rights, human rights, and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

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.

Despite their reassurances, rich countries are quickly reevaluating their strategy when it comes to Official Development Assistance.

Dr. Mayaki will analyse these fundamental trends and advocate a path for a common African policy when it comes to dealing with foreign development finance institutions.

Opening Reception | Boudoir of Doubt, Animalic: Artworks


From the artist: "A body of a thousand tiny engines metabolizing and ejecting text; flows, currents, paths, lineages, lifespans, leaves in the wind, migrations of a million arrows/eros sp[i/e]lling into every exterior, looping upwards and downwards and ducking sideways to create walls from flooring.  They do not compose words, barter with vessels of meaning: I’m not talking about tiles of text but textiles, pure closure, a tapestry of repeating (w)holes, a place of exchange between viewers and artifacts that constitutes no subject matter but the naked matter of the work."

Author Reading | Five Oceans in a Teaspoon: A Memoir in Short Visual Poems; Hosted by WNYC's Brian Lehrer


In 1979, investigative journalist/poet Dennis J Bernstein and artist/author Warren Lehrer began working on a book of poems, originally titled Stretch Marks. Instead of completing that book, they leapt into writing their first play together, and over the intervening years they collaborated on three books, including French Fries, considered a classic in visual literature and expressive typography. A few years ago, they began collaborating again with a renewed focus on visual poetry, bringing together Bernstein's words and Lehrer's typographic visualizations. On the 40th anniversary of their original effort and at the height of their creative powers, the muckraking journalist/poet and pioneer designer/author have completed Five Oceans in a Teaspoon, which reads like a memoir in short visual poems.

Author Reading | Three Summers: Translating Girlhood


Margarita Liberaki's Three Summers is the story of three sisters growing up in the countryside near Athens before the Second World War. Living in a big old house surrounded by a beautiful garden are Maria, the oldest sister, as sexually bold as she is eager to settle down and have a family of her own; beautiful but distant Infanta; and dreamy and rebellious Katerina, through whose eyes the story is mostly observed. Over three summers, the girls share and keep secrets, fall in and out of love, try to figure out their parents and other members of the tribe of adults, take note of the weird ways of friends and neighbors, worry about and wonder who they are.

Play | To Life: Meet the Rosens


The Rosen family, battered and blessed, celebrates Jeffrey’s life as their hearts lie gasping on the floor. Backs are turned and accusations hurled as the Rosens come together and fall apart, bound by heartbreak and humor. Nobody escapes a good kick in the tuchas as they expose their foibles, confront their fears, and cling to their fragile connection amidst the chaos. The story is both elegy and eulogy to the death of a family and reminds us that we’re not alone. Written by Eve Lederman.
