Book Discussion | Serenade: A Balanchine Story (online)


At age seventeen, Toni Bentley was chosen by Balanchine, then in his final years, to join the New York City Ballet. From both backstage and onstage, Bentley's new book carries us through the serendipitous history and physical intricacies and demands of Serenade: its dazzling opening, with seventeen women in a double-diamond pattern; its radical, even jazzy, use of the highly refined language that is ballet; its place in the choreographer's own dramatic story of his immigration to the United States from Soviet Russia; its mystical--and literal--embodiment of the tradition of classical ballet in just thirty-three minutes.

Lecture | Ukraine in Russian Energy Chains: Threat, Temptation and Learning from the Past (online)


The Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022 has confirmed not only the centrality of energy to the war, but also the importance of Ukraine to global energy policy, with its far-reaching economic, environmental, and cultural consequences. Energy entanglements and supply chains involving actors in Russia, Ukraine, and the European Union are key to understanding the current crisis of Russian aggression in Ukraine. These entanglements, however, cannot be fully understood unless we look at them from the prism of both threat and temptation. Margarita Balmaceda’s new book Russian Energy Chains: The Remaking of Technopolitics from Siberia to Ukraine to the European Union analyzes the the threat and temptation embodied in these chains.

Opening Reception | Alteronce Gumby: The Color of Everything


A solo exhibition of new abstract paintings and sculpture by Alteronce Gumby. It is the culmination of eight years of experiments and theories, which progressed as the artist investigated the history of monochromatic painting, color theory, cosmology, astrophysics, interstellar photography and Impressionism. Gumby’s process is the fulcrum of his work. It begins with the examination of light, its properties, and media, including resin, glass and gemstones. The result is what Gumby calls his, “tonal paintings”, made of unorthodox materials, which produce different hues, values and energies. His awareness of these ocular and kinetic possibilities derives from intensive research and observation. Gumby’s paintings are constituted to expand the understanding of abstraction, life and the origins of the universe.

Opening Reception | 2 New Exhibitions: Beneath / Seen, Unseen


Hollis Hildebrand-Mills  Beneath In 2019, Hollis Hildebrand-Mills started three paintings. Jerry Saltz (in an Instagram Direct Message to her) stated that all-over abstraction is good, but it’s “better” to have a central figure or object. So she chose to isolate the central figure from the confusion of the abstraction by using little “stars” or round wheels with spokes found in ice molds. She encircled the central object with the little stars. When COVID 19 hit the U.S. in 2020, and people were dying by the millions, these spoke-y, spooky little circles looked like spores (germs) and the skulls represented to the viewer the death of the population. It seemed at the time that what Hildebrand-Mills didn’t actually know in 2019, foreshadowed what was to come. Evolving out of the theme of this series came school shootings, random deaths, gun control anger from both sides, virtual learning, abortion rights and transgender discussions in schools.     Yu Rong  Seen, Unseen  For the artist, paintings are memories. She is interested in things that bear the weight of care. She wishes to paint freely. Painting is a way to show the imprint that she has left through the journey of her life. Through painting, sounds in me are tranquilized and I can reconcile with my memories. Learning about the art of every part of the world, studying philosophies, poems, and artistic techniques is Yu Rong's passion. Through understanding the different processes of art making such as encaustic painting, egg tempera painting, oil painting, Chinese brush painting, calligraphy, metal-point drawing, enameling, etc., she is able to choose mediums and techniques that she considers suitable for a particular theme in her work.

Opening Reception | Do Ho Suh: Memory and Monuments


Do Ho Suh’s long-awaited return to New York marks the artist’s eleventh solo exhibition with the gallery. Suh’s work confronts questions of home, memory, marginality, and the correlation between psychic and physical space. The exhibition will include a new configuration of Suh’s celebrated Specimens—a confluence of objects from different locations and periods in the artist’s life that reflect the accumulation of memory and an itinerant life. Also featured are works that further the artist’s 25-year engagement with questions concerning the monument and memorialization.

By choosing to repurpose what already exists, she reflects on consumerism, waste, value, and the idea of economy in a broader sense, as a principle and practice.

Opening Reception | Gideon Appah: More Luck


Ghanaian artist Gideon Appah's show will feature paintings and drawings that were made in Accra over the last three years, largely during the course of global lockdowns and collective upheaval. In this new body of work, much of which debuted in his recent museum show, Appah pivots from his usual cooler tones and opts instead for a warmer palette of desaturated color in order to render emotionally impactful compositions, culling equally melancholic and auspicious scenes that detail the complexities of the human condition and natural world. There are looming skies, bedridden men and drowning women, but the artist also marks a deep courage revealed by several portraits of majestic horses in varying states of rest and motion.

Working across styles and schools, the artists on view have challenged the traditional bounds of representation. Curator Dieter Schwarz describes these works as “building and destroying, caressing and attacking the figure, transgressing formal conventions and inventing faces not seen yet.”

Author Reading | Imagine a City: A Pilot's Jounrey Across the Urban World


In his small New England hometown, author and pilot Mark Vanhoenacker spent his childhood dreaming of elsewhere— of the distant, real cities he found on the illuminated globe in his bedroom, and of one perfect metropolis that existed only in his imagination. These cities were the sources of endless comfort and escape, and of a lasting fascination. Streets unspooled, towers shone, and anonymous crowds bustled in the places where Mark hoped he could someday be anyone—perhaps even himself. Now, as a commercial airline pilot, he has spent nearly two decades crossing the skies of our planet and touching down in dozens of the storied cities he imagined as a child. He experiences these destinations during brief stays that he repeats month after month and year after year, giving him an unconventional and uniquely vivid perspective on the places that form our urban world. In this intimate yet expansive work that weaves travelogue with memoir, Vanhoenacker celebrates the cities he has come to know and to love, through the lens of the hometown his heart has never quite left. As he explores emblematic facets of each city’s identity— the road signs of Los Angeles, the old gates of Jeddah, the snowy streets of Sapporo—he shows us with warmth and fresh eyes the extraordinary places that billions of us call home.

Opening Reception | Julie Curtiss: Somnambules


Somnambules is the French word for “sleepwalkers”; the works in this exhibition evoke an in-between state, almost trance-like, where the lines between the real and surreal collide. The title is also a reference to the Federico García Lorca poem, wherein a shared sensibility between the two artists can be found in the juxtaposition of things that don’t normally belong together, a mainstay of Curtiss’ approach. Somnambules consists of new paintings, works on paper, and sculptures, all demonstrating a marked evolution in the artist’s practice: the introduction of watercolor in her drawings; new materials in the sculptures; and ambitious undertakings in the paintings–including a large diptych depicting a scene in Times Square.

Opening Reception | Merlin James: Far and Near


Featuring new works among paintings from various points over the last four decades of his practice. Ruins, and buildings or interiors of a certain vintage recur across James’s work. The exhibition includes Toll House from 1984, depicting an archaic turnpike building, and Interior with Dried Flowers (1990) with its ‘period’ furnishings and air of a time preserved or frozen. Several smaller paintings in the show are recently reworked fragments from a large early ‘90s interior painting. Cropping down compositions is a frequent strategy for the artist; also adding to and enlarging works, with cuts, seams and other evidence of re-stretching being common.

Opening Reception | Mike Cloud: Works on Paper


An exhibition centered on a medium which the artist views as an integral and substantive part of his practice. These works - mainly collages, composed of bits and pieces from the physical world - function as a laboratory for ideas and evolve in tandem with the artist’s paintings, while also developing along independent lines integral to the medium itself. Starting with examples from 2003, a time when Cloud was still at graduate school, Works on Paper gives an insight into some of his central motivations, and their increasingly complex articulation.

Situated at the intersection of architecture and performance, his often participatory, public-facing works have been inspired by phantasmagoria and animatronic traditions. Through his installations, Lozano-Hemmer has examined social and political issues; literary histories; and natural, scientific, and physiological phenomena.

Opening Reception | Rick Lowe: Meditations on Social Sculpture


An exhibition of new works by Rick Lowe. Lowe’s current paintings evolved from ongoing public community projects—works of “social sculpture” that saw him move beyond the conventions of visual practice by developing and exercising skills in civic organization, political agitation, real-estate development, and architectural criticism. Over the past three decades, Lowe has evolved a mutable practice centered on catalyzing change through the transformation of shared structures and sites. To this end, in 1993, he cofounded Project Row Houses in Houston’s Third Ward, a historically and culturally significant African American neighborhood. Conceived in collaboration with other artists and creative thinkers, Project Row Houses transformed a small area of derelict shotgun houses into a vibrant cultural district.

The first New York solo exhibition of work by London-based artist Sara Anstis. Anstis’s evocative paintings and soft pastels on paper mine art history to render a darkly humorous universe defined by its rich layers of meaning and symbolism, its indeterminate, primarily nocturnal landscapes, and a population of deftly lit figures that seem to hark from the realms of folklore, dream, and mythology.

Opening Reception | Theresa Daddezio: Reworlding


Theresa Daddezio imagines hybridizations of human and botanic lifeforms, creating harmonies through the language of abstraction. The artist takes inspiration from the concept of plant mimicry–– in which a plant evolves to resemble another plant, often to attract pollinators or deter predators. In the paintings, organic forms take on synthetic colors and textures, complicating the boundaries between the natural and artificial. Daddezio’s paintings offer an optimistic vision of an interconnected future in spite of ecological destruction and stress, finding potential in our shared ability to adapt.

An attempt to gaze into the future of pastry; to discuss the idea of fluent geometry in Louis Sullivan and Moorish architecture; delve into the world of cake aesthetics online and the rise of radical softness; and engage the climate crisis and how it will shape the desserts of the future. Speculative and playful, this lecture is meant to offer hope as we move into a decolonial future.

Colloquium | The Madness of Philosophy and the Limitations of Human Moderation in Plato's Phaedrus


Socrates' close association of madness and philosophy from the Phaedrus has puzzled interpreters. How can philosophy be equated to irrationality? In this paper I argue against interpretations that either deny that the association of madness and philosophy ought to be taken seriously or downplay this association by considering madness as akin to the unreflective inspiration characterizing only the first stages of philosophizing but subsequently overcome by the mature philosopher. I show that the association of madness and philosophy is an integral part of Socrates' polemics against what he calls "human moderation", characterized by a cold calculation of costs and benefits. And, moreover, that madness is an ongoing feature of philosophy and of the philosopher, who is never fully in possession of all his rational and cognitive processes but has to constantly work on them in an effort of self-clarification.

Jazz | 2 Extraordinary Pianists


Pianist and composer Aaron Diehl mystifies listeners with his layered artistry. At once temporal and ethereal, his expression transforms the piano into an orchestral vessel in the spirit of beloved predecessors Ahmad Jamal, Erroll Garner and Jelly Roll Morton. Following three critically-acclaimed leader albums on Mack Avenue Records -- and live appearances at historic venues from Jazz at Lincoln Center and The Village Vanguard to New York Philharmonic and the Philharmonie de Paris -- the American Pianist Association's 2011 Cole Porter fellow now focuses his attention on what it means to be present within himself. His forthcoming solo record promises an expansion of that exploration in a setting at once unbound and intimate. During his kaleidoscopic quarter-century as a professional jazz musician, pianist Orrin Evans has become the model of a fiercely independent artist who pushes the envelope in all directions. Never supported by a major label, Evans has ascended to top-of-the-pyramid stature on his instrument, as affirmed by his #1-ranking as "Rising Star Pianist" in the 2018 DownBeat Critics Poll. Grammy nominations for the albums The Intangible Between and Presence, by Evans' raucous, risk-friendly Captain Black Big Band, stamp his bona fides as a bandleader and composer.

She’s come a long way from the meek teen she was growing up in small town Georgia, but the memory of her adolescence isn’t far—in fact, it’s splashed across a massive billboard in Times Square. An old photograph of Mikaela and her former best friend, Julie, has landed on the cover of a high-profile fashion magazine advertised all over the city. And when Julie files a lawsuit, Mikaela is caught in the middle as defense lawyer for the magazine.
