Lecture | Ukrainian in Russian: Life and Death of Russophone Literature in Ukraine (online)


For more than 200 years, texts written in Russian by Ukrainians were a part of Ukrainian culture – or were not. The integration of Ukraine into imperial structures meant that Russophone writers assumed a double identity, local and “all-Russian” or “all-Soviet”. Mykola Hohol, also known as Nikolai Gogol, is the most famous, but by no means a unique example. This lecture will explore the evolution of this identity: How did it emerge? Why at certain times were Russophone writers considered to be Ukrainian, and at others only Russian? How has their self-identification changed? And, last but not least, why did the Russophone literature of independent Ukraine become and then cease to be an integral part of Ukrainian culture? Speaker Mykhailo Nazarenko is Assistant Professor in the Department of East Slavic Philology and Practical Information Studies at the Educational and Scientific Institute of Philology of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

Discussion | Exploring Baby Bonds as a Tool to Improve Economic Security


An event on the intersection of baby bonds with health, wealth, housing, and education. Baby bonds are an innovative policy tool that provides children with publicly funded investment accounts that can be accessed at age 18 for specific uses, including education, homeownership, small business, and retirement. The funds are intended as a long-term investment designed to narrow the wealth gap and address generational poverty. As of 2022, eight states and Washington, D.C. have passed legislation to introduce baby bonds programs and supportive strategies that improve economic security. The event will feature Connecticut State Treasurer Shawn T. Wooden and Dr. Darrick Hamilton, founding director of the Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy at The New School, and a conversation on the benefits and challenges of baby bonds programs and effective strategies to link the bonds to other efforts addressing generational poverty.

Opening Reception | Anna K. + Sophia Robot: A Creative Collaboration


Multimedia artist Anna Khachatryan will debut a new body of work alongside art created by Sophia the robot, the world’s most famous android. This exhibition continues their creative collaboration that began in 2020, following Sophia’s meteoric rise as a global influencer and pop culture phenom. Since then, Anna K. has incorporated Sophia into her videos, digital art and mixed media works as a cyborg-muse for the post-internet era. Digitally born and programmed using AI and machine learning, Sophia embodies the so-called “uncanny valley”—a feeling of unease triggered in humans by deceptively humanoid robots. Sophia is also an established artist in her own right, having sold her NFT artwork for almost $700,000 in 2021. Similar to Andy Warhol, Anna K. extrapolates Sophia Robot’s celebrity essence and cultural caché through her own art practice—thereby critiquing society’s obsession with viral fame, emergent technologies, and digital escapism. Her art, which has recently been exhibited at the National Arts Club in Manhattan, depicts surreal scenes that combine virtual dreamscapes with a dystopian DIY aesthetic.

Gallery Talk | Las flores de mi país: Exhibition Tour and Discussion (online)


NYC parks span over 30,000 acres and is home to a biodiversity as rich and varied as the Latin American diaspora. In its first gallery exhibition Las flores de mi País, NYC Parks’ Latino Society aims to represent the diverse communities that make up this great city by exploring interpretations of Latinx culture using imagery of native flora from countries or territories of their choice. Botanicals are used as inspiration, symbols, a medium to create designs, a historical reference, and in textile design that reflect a culture or tradition. This is a virtual tour of the exhibit and a discussion with Latinx community gardeners, who will share how they’ve been inspired by the plants of their ancestral countries and how they’ve brought knowledge and traditions here to NYC.

Book Discussion | More is More is More: Today's Maximalist Interiors


Carl Dellatore's book is a vibrant collection of maximalist interiors from today's top designers. Rooms of jewellike color and glorious pattern. Enchanting lacquered ceilings and geometric floors. Brilliantly massed collections of furniture, objects, and art. Although maximalism has always had a place in interior design—practiced by noted decorators such as Dorothy Draper, Sister Parish, and Mario Buatta—today it is bigger than ever. Thanks to its contemporary practitioners, rooms rich with color, pattern, and everything else have exploded onto the design scene in recent years. More Is More Is More celebrates the best of this work with page after page of lushly photographed vivid inspiration and ideas.

Discussion | Artist Talk: Racial Stereotypes in Ads and Packaging (online)


Michael Ray Charles’s graphically styled paintings investigate racial stereotypes drawn from a history of American advertising, product packaging, billboards, radio jingles, and television commercials. Charles draws comparisons between Sambo, Mammy, and minstrel images of an earlier era and contemporary mass-media portrayals of black youths, celebrities, and athletes—images he sees as a constant in the American subconscious. Cherise Smith is the Joseph D. Jamail Chair in African American Studies in the Department African & African Diaspora Studies at the University of Texas at Austin where she is affiliated with Art History. She is the author of Michael Ray Charles: A Retrospective, which won the Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art from the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Book Discussion | 2 New Novels: Something New Under the Sun / All's Well


Something New Under the Sun by Alexandra Kleeman Novelist Patrick Hamlin has come to Los Angeles to oversee the film adaptation of one of his books and try to impress his wife and daughter back home with this last-ditch attempt at professional success. But California is not as he imagined. Drought, wildfire, and corporate corruption are everywhere, and the company behind a mysterious new brand of synthetic water seems to be at the root of it all. All's Well by Mona Awad A novel about a theater professor who is convinced staging Shakespeare’s most maligned play will remedy all that ails her—but at what cost? Miranda Fitch’s life is a waking nightmare. The accident that ended her burgeoning acting career left her with excruciating chronic back pain, a failed marriage, and a deepening dependence on painkillers. And now, she’s on the verge of losing her job as a college theater director. Determined to put on Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well, the play that promised and cost her everything, she faces a mutinous cast hellbent on staging Macbeth instead. Miranda sees her chance at redemption slip through her fingers.

Film | Bowlingtreff (2015): Bowling for Freedom in East Germany


The Bowlingtreff was a bowling alley in the East German city of Leipzig. It opened to the public in 1987, as living conditions in the GDR were rapidly declining. Built by hundreds of volunteers without a permit, the building follows a free and international architecture known as postmodernism, which had never been seen before in Leipzig. The Bowlingtreff was not just an urban entertainment hub but, with its Western flair, a piece of aesthetic resistance. Postmodernism luminary Denise Scott Brown regards it as a monument to the zeitgeist of 1989 and the GDR people’s bravery to claim their freedom.   Directed by Thomas Beyer, Adrian Dorschner 60 minutes In German and Italian with English subtitles

Book Discussion | Hip Hop Heresies: Queer Aesthetics in New York City


Shanté Paradigm Smalls's book centers New York City as a space where vibrant queer, Black, and hip hop worlds collide and bond in dance clubs, schools, roller rinks, basketball courts, subways, and movie houses. Using this cultural nexus as the stage, Shanté Paradigm Smalls attends to the ways that hip hop cultural production in New York City from the 1970s through the early twenty-first century produced film, visual art, and music that offer queer articulations of race, gender, and sexuality. To illustrate New York City as a place of experimental aesthetic collaboration, Smalls brings four cultural moments to the forefront: the life and work of the gay Chinese American visual and graffiti artist Martin Wong, who brokered the relationship between New York City graffiti artists and gallery and museum spaces; the Brooklyn-based rapper-singer-writer-producer Jean Grae, one of the most prolific and underrated emcees of the last two decades; the iconic 1980s film The Last Dragon, which exemplifies the experimental and queer Black masculinity possible in early formal hip hop culture; and finally queer- and trans-identified hip hop artists and groups like BQE, Deepdickollective, and Hanifah Walidah, and the documentary Pick Up the Mic.

Concert | Amour Fou: Avant-Garde Show with Music, Literature, Machine Learning and Theater


The award-winning show by Scharmien Zandi meets texts by anonymous authors, which are then performed by Sarah Scherer and visualized via Machine Learning by Stephanie Meisl. Through the electrifying sound fields of Chanson, Oriental and Experimental, the songs and lyrics depict the weirdness of lust and love, and include social issues such as equality, freedom, individuality, racism and sexism. In exploring these sensitive topics, the artists find themselves simultaneously defending, judging, and executing. The perspectives are full of humor, melancholy, criticism and irony. Scharmien Zandi is a music, performance and multimedia artist. She was awarded the Austrian Music Theater Prize 2020. She is a director at the Musiktheater an der Wien for "SuperZero, Baby", plays in the band CADU and Misthaufen and received the 2022 Scholarship for Music and Performing Arts from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Arts. Sarah Scherer works as a director, actress and video artist for opera, theatre and film. As a director for opera and theatre she worked for well known institutions such as Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Theater an der Wien, etc. Her movies have been awarded at international festivals. Stephanie Meisl, also known as s.myselle, is a multimedia and visual artist. Her work has been presented in Paris, Copenhagen, at the Salzburg Festival etc. She is the winner of the Salzburg VJ Lab Award and a member of the Schmiede art festival.

Jazz | Jazz Singer's Story of Her Own Life


The concert offers jazz singer Mafalda Minnozzi the opportunity to sing her own life story through the songs and the composers that accompanied her throughout her career of 35 years. Inspired by her latest album, Cinema City - Jazz Scenes from Italian Film, Minnozzi assembles a strong and emotional soundtrack, not unlike the score of a film. The result is an intimate narrative sequence that allows the audience to empathize naturally with the artist who seems to be cast as both audience and protagonist of this movie.
