Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 11 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Start times: 10:30am, 12pm

Discussion | Documentary DIrector Discusses Her Film on Post-Hurricane Puerto Rico


A Q+A with director Cecilia Aldarondo to discuss her film Landfall. Through shard-like glimpses of everyday life in post-Hurricane María Puerto Rico, Landfall is a cautionary tale for our times. Set against the backdrop of protests that toppled the US colony’s governor in 2019, the film offers a prismatic portrait of collective trauma and resistance. While the devastation of María attracted a great deal of media coverage, the world has paid far less attention to the storm that preceded it: a 72-billion-dollar debt crisis crippling Puerto Rico well before the winds and waters hit.

Discussion | Charting Pathways to Green Jobs


Substantial investments are being made at all levels of government to spur a faster transition to a clean economy in the face of climate change. To meet this moment, the workforce needs to be prepared and, in some cases retrained. And employers must work with jobs training organizations and organized labor to ensure that pathways are clear, communicated and fully supported.

He pays particular attention to compositions by Muhal Richard Abrams and Roscoe Mitchell, the Association’s leading figures, as well as Anthony Braxton, George Lewis (and his famous computer-music experiment, Voyager), Wadada Leo Smith, and Henry Threadgill, along with younger AACM members such as Mike Reed, Tomeka Reid, and Nicole Mitchell.

Discussion | It's Kairos Time: Building a Moral Revolution (online)


We are living in a Kairos moment. A time of great crisis. The crumbling of all our institutions. The breaking down of society. The mentality that crushes a brother’s neck — as in the case of George Floyd in Minneapolis — or shoots a man jogging because of his skin color — as in the case of Ahmaud Arbery — is the same mentality that sends black and brown and poor and low-income workers of all colors into the lethal path of the COVID-19 pandemic without needed protections, health care and economic resources. The current crises reveal that a moral fusion movement is necessary to transform the nation. We have no option but to organize, we have no option but to mobilize, and art and culture are at the center of this moral response. This session will explore the relationship of arts and movement building in the work of the Kairos Center, one of the convening organizations of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. It will examine the role artists and cultural organizers can play in bringing about a revolution of values and a radical redistribution of political and economic power when politically grounded in the everyday lived experiences of those most impacted by deep injustices of our society. Echoing the words of W.E.B. DuBois, that “All art is propaganda and ever must be,” this session speaks to deep collectivity and analysis that is needed to produce effective movement art.

Lecture | Traditional Indian Dance Scholar: History of Odissi Dance


Considered one of the foremost masters of Odissi (one of the eight classical dances of India) in the world, Bijayini Satpathy has enjoyed a vast career as principal dancer, master teacher, and respected scholar. Satpathy embodies the spirit and profound storytelling of classical Indian dance in a way few others have achieved. Now, in the prime of her artistic life, Satpathy embarks on a journey to expand the tradition through her own choreographic work. She is the Artist-in-Residence with the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2021-22 season. In this lecture, Bijayini Satpathy maps the journey of Odissi from the pre-Christian period to the global dance that Odissi is today, addressing the key milestones on the way of its evolution.

Discussion | Stickers and Society


Stickers give a voice to those without. Accessible and affordable, this art form is endlessly mutable and ephemeral. They're the perfect lens for a wider audience to explore a vast scope of unfiltered culture. Unlike work protected in a gallery and recreated on the internet which is memorialized and searchable forever, stickers often last only as long as their adhesive backing and resilience to the elements. Hiding in plain sight, stickers deserve serious review. Therefore, there will be a conversation between two NYC luminaries: the first being DB Burkeman—FKA DJ DB, author of 2 sticker history books, infamous rave & jungle DJ, art curator and collector and participant in some of the most significant movements in the past half-century counter-culture. DB cheekily credits himself as knowing “more about stickers than anyone on the planet” and will be joined by Carlo McCormick, cultural critic, former senior editor of Paper Magazine, longtime museum curator for all things pop culture and superstar in the downtown NYC art scene. The duo offer their expertise and experience in a Q+A panel and encourage questions from the students.

Book Discussion | Chokepoint Capitalism: How Big Tech and Big Content Captured Creative Labor Markets and How We'll Win Them Back


Corporate concentration has breached the stratosphere, as have corporate profits. An ever-expanding constellation of industries are now monopolies (where sellers have excessive power over buyers) or monopsonies (where buyers hold the whip hand over sellers)—or both. Author Rebecca Giblin and writer and activist Cory Doctorow argue we’re in a new era of “chokepoint capitalism,” with exploitative businesses creating insurmountable barriers to competition that enable them to capture value that should rightfully go to others. All workers are weakened by this, but the problem is especially well-illustrated by the plight of creative workers. From Amazon’s use of digital rights management and bundling to radically change the economics of book publishing, to Google and Facebook’s siphoning away of ad revenues from news media, and the Big Three record labels’ use of inordinately long contracts to up their own margins at the cost of artists, chokepoints are everywhere.
