Tour | Bloomingdale Neighborhood Walking Tour


Explore the history of this part of Upper West Side with local historian Jim Mackin. Here is what http://www.cityneighborhoods.nyc/bloomingdale-district/ says about it: While it is still technically part of the Upper West Side, Manhattan's Bloomingdale District takes its name from its original Dutch settlers. Located between West 96th and West 110th Streets, the Hudson River and Broadway, The Bloomingdale District is an almost-forgotten enclave (and name) in the Upper West Side. Perhaps named for the old Dutch village of Bloemendaal ("valley of flowers"), this neighborhood was once home to the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum. It is likely that the name fell out of disuse to avoid association with the facility. But now, the neighborhood is distinguished enough from the Upper West Side to the south, and Manhattan Valley to the east to warrant its own name - one that hearkens back to its roots, and befitting a scenic, almost "bucolic" city neighborhood.

Film | Color Adjustment (1992): Blacks on TV


Color Adjustment analyzes the evolution of television's earlier, unflattering portrayal of blacks from 1948 until 1988, when they are depicted as prosperous and as having achieved the American dream, a portrayal that is inconsistent with reality. Black actors Esther Rolle, Diahann Carroll, Denise Nicholas, and Tim Reid and Hollywood producers Norman Lear, Steve Bochco, and David Wolper reveal the behind-the-scenes story of how prime time was "integrated." Director: Marlon T. Riggs 87 min.

Classical Music | Bach Vespers: Denn du wirst meine Seele nich in der Hölle lassen


Program Bach Denn du wirst meine Seele nich in der Hölle lassen Denn du wirst meine Seele nicht in der Hölle lassen BWV 15, (For You Shall Not Leave My Soul In Hell), is a church cantata spuriously attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach but most likely composed by Johann Ludwig Bach. The piece was initially thought to be an early work of Johann Sebastian Bach. However, Bach scholars reattributed the piece to his cousin, Johann Ludwig Bach. The piece was likely composed in Meiningen in 1704 for the first day of Eastertide, known as Easter Sunday. There is some evidence that it may have been performed again under the aegis of Johann Sebastian Bach on 21 April 1726 in Leipzig.

Talk | Empowered: Popular Feminism and Popular Misogyny


This presentation examines how contemporary popular feminism re-imagines and re-directs what “empowerment” means for women, and how it is restructuring feminist politics within neoliberal culture. While a broader acceptance of feminism as an identity, concept, and practice can be exhilarating, for those who find feminism to be a threat, this acceptance also stimulates fear, aggression, and violence. This talk explores the deeply entwined relationship between the creation and expression of popular feminism and popular misogyny.

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 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Author Reading | The Postwar Moment: Progressive Forces in Britain, France, and the United States After World War II


After the end of World War II, Britain, France, and the U.S. were faced with two very different choices: return to the civic order of pre-war normalcy or embark instead on a path of progressive transformation. In this ambitious and original new book, Isser Woloch assesses the progressive agendas that crystalized in each of the three allied democracies, tracing their roots in the interwar decades, their development during wartime, the struggles to establish them after the war’s end, and the mixed outcome in each country. Author Isser Woloch is the Moore Collegiate Professor Emeritus of History.

Lecture | The Civil War and Critical History


From the first shots of the war itself to recent debates about Neonazis and Confederate monuments, the history of the Civil War in the United States has played a major role in thinking about racism and democracy. The anti-racist side of Civil War memory has, however, too often attached itself to US state-building projects, projects of nation, empire, and of liberal citizenship. In his lecture, Andrew Zimmermann will discuss his current book project on the American Civil War as transnational working-class revolution, emphasizing questions of race, class, violence, and social transformation. Zimmerman is the author of Anthropology and Antihumanism in Imperial Germany (Chicago, 2001) and Alabama in Africa: Booker T. Washington, the German Empire, and the Globalization of the New South (Princeton, 2010).

Lecture | Youth Aspirations in Exile: Participatory Action Research in the Kakuma Refugee Camp


This talk examines schooling as a lens into daily experiences of (non)citizenship in Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp. Researchers who study how youth navigate precarious openings to education, work, and migration tend to not challenge the systemic inequalities that hold youth back, but instead reinforce Western notions of meritocracy in which only the best students deserve access. Even when these researchers implore the global community for more equitable access to educational opportunities, they rationalize ranking systems that benefit the few to the exclusion of the many. Michelle Bellino of the University of Michigan illustrates how narratives that favor individualized competition are embedded in models of schooling imported from the Western world, and how they impede Kakuma youth from forging a collective identity.

Author Reading | The Old Drift: The Epic Story of a Small African Nation


Three families. Four Generations. Fates collide as a nation is born and drifts toward ruin. Or is it a revolution? On the banks of the Zambezi River, a few miles from the majestic Victoria Falls, there was once a colonial settlement called the Old Drift. Here begins the epic story of a small African nation, told by a mysterious swarm-like chorus that calls itself man’s greatest nemesis. With author Namwali Serpell.

Author Reading | Vice, Crime, and Poverty: Myths of the Lower Depths


Beggars, outcasts, urchins, waifs, prostitutes, criminals, convicts, madmen, fallen women, lunatics, degenerates—part reality, part fantasy, these are the grotesque faces that populate the underworld, the dark inverse of our everyday world. Lurking in the mirror that we hold up to our society, they are our counterparts, repelling us yet offering the tantalizing promise of escape. The sordid lower depths reflects our fears and anxieties—as well as our desires. In Vice, Crime, and Poverty, Dominique Kalifa examines how the myth of the lower depths, from the Parisian demimonde to Victorian squalor, from the slums of New York to the sewers of Buenos Aires, came into being in nineteenth-century Europe, in a world turned upside-down by industrialization, democratization, and mass culture.

Discussion | Climate Change and the Green New Deal


In late 2018, a UN climate science body report stated that humanity has just 12 years to make massive, unprecedented changes to global energy infrastructure to limit global warming to moderate levels. Policies that would reduce climate pollution are not new, but do not currently add up to a comprehensive solution. So what about the Green New Deal—a massive program of investments in clean-energy jobs and infrastructure, meant to transform not only the energy sector but the whole economy? Operating on three core principles—decarbonization, jobs, and justice—the GND intends to both decarbonize the economy and improve the growing inequality and top-heavy power of late Capitalism. Outlining the realities of the impending climate crisis and then examining the potential of the GND as a plan of response, this event will tackle topics such as: the political and social impacts of global warming; the adaptations must we begin to make, technically, politically, and socially; the political and policy engineering required to achieve the GND; achieving bi-partisan support; and what a GND platform that diverse constituencies can rally around and endorse would look like. With: -- Kate Aronoff, climate writer and reporter for The Intercept -- Robert C. Hockett, GND Advisor to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- Matthew Miles Goodrich, NY Director of the Sunrise Movement -- David Wallace-Wells, author of The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming -- Arielle Duhaime-Ross, environment and climate correspondent for VICE News Tonight

Author Reading | Towards the Glass Box: Postwar Skyscrapers in Portland, New York and Chicago


The ubiquitous "Glass Box" skyscrapers of the postwar era have a surprisingly opaque history. In this talk, architect and professor Thomas Leslie asks "where did the glass skin come from?" and shows how lighting, air conditioning, and glass technologies developed in the decades before Lever House and Seagram. Leslie reveals how solid-wall systems rapidly evolved through experiments with reliable cladding and servicing systems to produce the triumph of transparency.

Reading | Guernica Magazine's "Climate Fiction" Issue


Readings by Helen Phillips, Pitchaya Sudbanthad, Nathan Kensinger, Ken Chen, Karen Holmberg, Eugenia Kisin, Jerome Whitington, and Amy Brady “These stories exemplify the genre of ‘climate fiction,’ or ‘cli-fi,’ by exploring what the world might become if climate change continues unabated. Its roots are in science fiction, but here, it’s tinged, beautifully so, with realism and the supernatural. At its best, cli-fi conjures, spell-like, meditative spaces in which we ponder our deepest fears before emerging transfigured.” —Amy Brady, from the introduction to Guernica

Author Reading | Into the White: The Renaissance Arctic and the End of the Image


How the far North offered a different kind of terra incognita for the Renaissance imagination. European narratives of the Atlantic New World tell stories of people and things: strange flora, wondrous animals, sun-drenched populations for Europeans to mythologize or exploit. Yet, as author Christopher Heuer explains, between 1500 and 1700, one region upended all of these conventions in travel writing, science, and, most unexpectedly, art: the Arctic. Icy, unpopulated, visually and temporally "abstract," the far North--a different kind of terra incognita for the Renaissance imagination--offered more than new stuff to be mapped, plundered, or even seen. Neither a continent, an ocean, nor a meteorological circumstance, the Arctic forced visitors from England, the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy, to grapple with what we would now call a "non-site," spurring dozens of previously unknown works, objects, and texts--and this all in an intellectual and political milieu crackling with Reformation debates over art's very legitimacy.

Discussion | Photography in Describing Our Relationship to the Natural World


How do aesthetics shape our understanding of ecological concerns? Celebrating the “Earth” issue of Aperture magazine, this conversation will consider the role of photography in describing our relationship to the natural world, in a moment of grave concern for the environment. This panel will include Carolyn Drake, who was commissioned by Aperture to photograph the aftermath of the recent wildfires in Northern California; David Benjamin Sherry, whose recent highly saturated color images portray national parks that have been significantly reduced in size by the Trump administration; and Mary Mattingly, whose work explores the ways in which raw materials are mined in the name of geoengineering.

Talk | The ISIS Files


Over the last few years, New York Times foreign correspondent Rukmini Callimachi led an effort that gathered over 15,000 pages of documents left behind by ISIS in Iraq. These documents, which became known as the “The ISIS Files,” reveal the group’s sophisticated and organized governance structure and provide detailed evidence of their activities and atrocities. With Lorenzo Vidino, Director of the George Washington University Program on Extremism, Callimachi will discuss how these documents have shaped our understanding of ISIS.

Workshop | Chinese Traditional Painting


Learn the techniques of Chinese Traditional Painting! Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as guóhuà, meaning "national" or "native painting", as opposed to Western styles of art which became popular in China in the 20th century. Traditional painting involves essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and is done with a brush dipped in black ink or coloured pigments; oils are not used. As with calligraphy, the most popular materials on which paintings are made are paper and silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls, such as hanging scrolls or handscrolls. Traditional painting can also be done on album sheets, walls, lacquerware, folding screens, and other media. Please bring your own brushes; paper and ink will be provided.

Author Reading | Minjian: The Rise of China’s Grassroots Intellectuals


While China’s intellectuals throughout the twentieth century were defined in terms of their elite position and responsibility for the nation, this role was profoundly challenged after the crackdown on the democracy movement of 1989. In its aftermath, new groups of intellectuals emerged from grassroots society, devoted to constituting alternative forms of knowledge outside the academy: amateur historians researching the Mao era, amateur ethnographers using documentary films to investigate social issues, grassroots lawyers working with disenfranchised groups to build rights-awareness, and citizen bloggers and journalists challenging the state control of the public sphere. Author Sebastian Veg is a professor of intellectual history and literature of 20th century China at the School of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences, Paris.

Author Reading | The Terrorist Argument: Modern Advocacy and Propaganda


Terrorist groups use a fantastic variety of means to seize attention, explain themselves, and seek recruits and support: song and speech, “guerrilla theater,” leaflets, radio, cable TV, newspapers, print ads, books, videos, web sites, e-zines, and of course social media. In a highly original merging of media studies & terrorism studies, Christopher C. Harmon and co-author Randall G. Bowdish pair a medium of strategic communication with a named terrorist group. Examined in successive chapters are propaganda works of nationalists such as the Algerians and Irish; Maoists; secular Iranian dissidents; and other groups such as the potent Islamist organizations Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, and ISIS.

Lecture | Historic Cities of Ukraine: Perspectives for Research and Conservation


A atlk about those historic cities of Ukraine, in particular within its historical region of Halychyna, that had been granted the Magdeburg Law. The Magdeburg Law privileges had an essential influence on the urban development of the region and throughout Central and Eastern Europe. It brought about the emergence of a very specific city planning model, featuring a market square at its center, which lasted for centuries. In many cases, however, this model had to be integrated with older urban structures or reshaped to conform with new ideas of urban planning that many cities underwent as they developed with time. These transformations will be analyzed with a particular focus on crucial changes that transpired in the 20th century. Also discussed will be the special status obtained by historic cities that require conservation and preservation of their physical fabric. Speaker Mariana Kaplinska received her PhD at the Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine in 2016 and has taught at that university since then. She has been involved in the development of historic preservation plans and surveys for a number of cities. In 2018, she participated in the 18th International Course on Wood Conservation Technology (ICWCT 2018) in Oslo, Norway.

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 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Lecture | Energy, Development and Climate Change: How Development Successes Are Fundamentally Altering the Global Energy Landscape


As recently as 2000, industrialized countries consumed more than half of the world’s energy resources. Today, about fifteen years later, more than half of the world’s energy is being consumed in developing countries where there are over 6 billion energy consumers and their share of consumption is expected to increase over the next several decades, more than doubling industrialized country consumption by 2040. And with these changes, the center of gravity of the energy landscape is shifting to the developing world. Speaker Philippe Benoit is currently Adjunct Senior Research Scholar leading the work of its Center on Global Energy Policy in the area of energy for development.

Around the world, indigenous communities and movements are revitalizing indigenous knowledge and ways of organizing to defend lands, restore communal self-determination, and protect Mother Earth as they confront (neo)colonial, patriarchal, capitalist and state projects that undermine indigenous territories and drive Anthropocene crises like climate change and biodiversity loss.

Opening Reception | Inspiration & Exploration: Some of the Greatest Abstract Artists of the 20th Century


A group show featuring paintings, paper works, and sculpture from some of the greatest abstract artists of the 20th century. Inspiration & Exploration showcases how these artists chose to define themselves and their world in a century marked by two world wars, rapid technological and economic change across the globe, radical social movements, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Releasing themselves from many of the traditional boundaries of technique, composition, and subject matter, abstract artists were free to investigate non-traditional media, concepts, and visual languages. This exhibition investigates these artists’ sources of inspiration and the various ways they explored their personal style and medium.

Author Reading | Vice, Crime, and Poverty: How the Western Imagination Invented the Underworld


Winner of the 2013 Prix Mauvais genres, this book examines the underworld of 19th and 20th century France. The underworld, a zone outside of the law, populated by beggars, prostitutes, criminals and convicts and where every form of social ill seems to coexist, regularly haunts our imagination. From Batman’s Gotham to Eugène Sue’s Paris, Kalifa explores how journalism, literature, and film have framed our fascination and repulsion with this world of crime, violence, vice, and poverty. Author Dominique Kalifa is a historian and professor at the University of Paris 1, where he heads the Center of 19th Century History.

Lecture | Immersive, Interactive, Democratic, 'Original': Shakespeare You Can Throw Beer At


This talk considers an influential movement in a relatively small slice of contemporary theatre: the “Original Practices” movement in Shakespeare performance. Although “OP” claims to eschew modern theatrical technology in favor of early modern practices, its promoters frequently define OP in terms that locate it firmly in the ideological sphere of late modernity: as immersive, interactive, and most of all, democratic.  In this talk, W. B. Worthen considers the ways its human and the inhuman agents—or actants—betray OP’s implication in contemporary values, perhaps nowhere so clearly as in its “spiritualization” of an innately Shakespearean techne, one that is always “original,” whatever its theatrical or technological provenance. Preceded by a reception hour from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. for all those attending the lecture.

Talk | Artist Talk: Garage: American Delusion


The garage is a raw, semi-domestic space, one that is free of the filial piety and gender roles ascribed to the kitchen, bedroom and living room. The space is the incubator of disruptive attitudes and subcultures. This talk will frame the myth of the garage and its architectural beginnings with Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House to its evolution as a central space for the American Dream to its turn into delusion. These will be accompanied by short clips from the speakers' new documentary, which sketch out new family arrangements and ways of living that are emerging in an increasingly entrepreneurial landscape. Luis Ortega Govela is a Mexican architect and writer based in Los Angeles. He is an Architectural Association graduate and a founder of the arts collective åyr. He is currently working on a documentary film and his first residential project. Olivia Erlanger choreographs ultramodern environments through installations, videos and writing that show how advanced technologies engender subjectivity. Alongside curating exhibitions as a founding director of Grand Century, New York, Erlanger has held solo exhibition with Mother Culture, Los Angeles; Human Resources, Los Angeles; AND NOW, Dallas; Mathew, New York; What Pipeline, Detroit; Balice Hertling New York; and Seventeen Gallery, London.

Author Reading | A Wonderful Stroke of Luck: In Search of an Anchor


In A Wonderful Stroke of Luck, Ann Beattie allows herself a longer format to explore the connections among a group of people who attended a boarding school in the very early aughts and fell under the spell of an enigmatic, manipulative teacher. Beattie follows Ben, a student of Bailey Academy who, after the death of his father, struggles to establish or keep momentum in any area of his life. He grasps for connections—with his stepmother, with a neighbor, with a woman he shares a destructive relationship with—looking for someone who might serve as an anchor in his life.

Author Reading | France in the World: A New Global History


The bestselling Histoire mondiale de la France (2017) conceives of France not as a fixed, rooted entity, but instead as a place and an idea in flux, moving beyond all borders and frontiers, shaped by exchanges and mixtures. As a  “discontinuous” history, this book rejects traditional periods and spatial confines; as a popular history, it articulates a new way of writing about the past; as a civic endeavor, it invites readers to trace their own routes across the past; as a political gesture, it intervenes in debates about the contours of national identities.  In April, Other Press will publish a translation that includes most of the original articles, along with new material. To celebrate the publication of France in the World: A New Global History, this is a roundtable on the historical, literary, and political dimensions of this singular book. With three of the original editors, Patrick Boucheron (Collège de France), Nicolas Delalande (Science Po), and Séverine Nikel (Le Seuil), as well as the editor of the English-language edition, Stéphane Gerson.

Author Reading | Occult Features of Anarchism: With Attention to the Conspiracy of Kings and the Conspiracy of the Peoples


Author Erica Lagalisse sets straight the history of the Left, illustrating the actual relationship between modern revolutionism, occult philosophy, and the clandestine fraternity: Questions of class respectability may lead Leftists to ignore “conspiracy theory”, yet in doing so neo-fascist theories of history gain ground. Inspired by research within today’s anarchist movements, Lagalisse’s latest work also serves to challenge contemporary anarchist “atheism”, which poses practical challenges for coalition politics in the 21st century.

Author Reading | The Workshop and the World: What Ten Thinkers Can Teach Us about Science and Authority


When does a scientific discovery become accepted fact? Why have scientific facts become easy to deny? And what can we do about it? Philosopher and science historian Robert P. Crease answers these questions by describing the origins of our scientific infrastructure--the "workshop"--and the role of ten of the world's greatest thinkers in shaping it. At a time when the Catholic Church assumed total authority, Francis Bacon, Galileo Galilei, and Ren Descartes were the first to articulate the worldly authority of science, while writers such as Mary Shelley and Auguste Comte told cautionary tales of divorcing science from the humanities. The provocative leaders and thinkers like Hannah Arendt addressed the relationship between the scientific community and the public in in times of deep distrust.

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 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Author Reading | On Sunset: A Memoir


Kathryn Harrison always understood that her family was beyond eccentric - they'd breached the bounds of the unconventional. She was largely raised by her grandparents in an outsized Tudor confection of a house on the periphery of Bel Air, which she thought of as "Sunset," her kingdom of the imagination, inhabited by the past and its numberless artifacts. Kathryn Harrison grew up in an almost mythical realm of their letters and artifacts and stories -- until declining finances forced to sell the house on Sunset in 1971, and night fell fast. On Sunset seeks to recover that childhood, that place, those lives - and does so with piercing poignancy.

Book Signing | David Deutsch: Works 1968-2017


Over the past fifty years, David Deutsch has used a variety of techniques-painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, and conceptual mixed media-to create artwork that addresses complicated themes of the interior and exterior. From voyeuristic nighttime aerial photography to painterly abstracted landscapes, Deutsch wrestles with how we occupy our lives and the tension that exists as we navigate paths through time and memory. Most recently, Deutsch has focused primarily on painting large-scale monotypes, about which Roberta Smith of The New York Times notes, "Mr. Deutsch's paintings are grown-up, complex of space and surface, and rich in notions of human interaction or the lack thereof; voyeurism and solitude; and often an ambiguous ominousness." This extensive monograph provides a thorough look at a body of work that is at once innovative, familiar, and provocative. Author Jarrett Earnest is an artist and writer living in New York City. His book, What it Means to Write About Art: Interviews with Art Critics will be published fall 2018 by David Zwirner Books.

Opening Reception | Jonas Wood: Paintings and Works on Paper


Jonas Wood’s paintings and works on paper display overlapping textures and disorienting compressions of space. The intimate settings invoke the work of forebears such as Henri Matisse and David Hockney, yet his distorted verdant rooms possess an affectless cut-out appearance all his own. In drawings, collages, watercolors, and paintings, outlines of pots and vases frame landscape and interior imagery. Drawn and painted vessels set against neutral backgrounds contain a sprawling green golf course, a coral reef with exotic fish, a lush garden, a painter’s studio—all scenes that end abruptly at the parameters of the object.

Opening Reception | November's Guest: The Iconic Landscape of America


An exhibition of new oil paintings by Michael Gregory. Since 2000, Gregory has focused on the American iconic landscape. A sense of loneliness pervades his paintings, which may include a barn or farm community, a silo, telephone poles, fences, fields of hay, cloud or star-filled skies. His point of departure is love of the land, particularly the West that John Steinbeck described in his books. The artist does not seek a photoreal representation of the land and sky; each painting in oil on canvas is a reimagined vision of what he has seen as he drives through vast stretches of the land and skyscape.

Opening Reception | Warhol Women: Portraits from the 60s through the 80s


The selection of paintings, covering the full scope of Warhol’s career, invites the viewer to ponder the artist’s complex and often contradictory relationship to myths and ideals of femininity, beauty, and power. Whether intimate or monumental in scale, each canvas embodies the ambiguities that animate Warhol’s oeuvre. Made using his signature silkscreen process, they seem at first glance to submit to impersonal iteration—the machine-like detachment of the Factory production line. Yet, upon sustained viewing, they convey something indelible about their sitters: an aura of intimacy that by turns intrigues and unsettles. Forever undecidable, these portraits offer up both the glittering surface and the raw humanity of Warhol’s art, which pulses with the evidence of his halftone silkscreen process and, in works of his later years, fluid strokes of synthetic paint. Through paintings riotous and defiant, vulnerable and demure, Warhol Women sheds fresh light on both the artist’s oeuvre and our present moment, wherein questions of female empowerment and the construction of identity through images are as urgent as ever.

Discussion | Excavating Feminist Histories: Early Productions from Women Make Movies


In the late 1960s and 1970s, numerous media organizations arose driven by the desire to give voice to those ordinarily marginalized by the mainstream media. Among this wave was Women Make Movies, a female-led, community-based media education center founded in New York in 1969 to empower women to tell their own stories by teaching them the technical production skills to pursue their own film and videos projects. Through these early efforts, all-women crews experimented with largely fiction storytelling to address important contemporary feminist themes such as gender equality, independence, love, friendship, and communal values. While Women Make Movies, Inc. has since become one of the most impactful and important distributors of independent film produced by women, its early origins as a production and community-based teaching group have been largely forgotten. This presentation and screening event seeks to bring a selection of these rare, early feminist fiction projects to light. A roundtable discussion moderated by Tanya Goldman, Cinema Studies PHD candidate, will follow the screening. The panel will include Women Make Movies co-founders Ariel Dougherty and Sheila Paige, and Dr. Alexandra Juhasz, Chair of the Film Department, Brooklyn College, CUNY. The discussion will center upon the legacy of Seventies feminist filmmaking, preservation challenges, and ways to bridge past and present to forge intergenerational bonds between media activists then and now.

Discussion | On The Art Of Two European Painters


Robert Bunkin will discuss the art of painters Mela Muter and Lotte Laserstein. Two forgotten 20th century masters of figurative painting, Mela Muter (Polish 1876 - 1967) and Lotte Laserstein (German 1898 - 1993) both suffered persecution under the Nazi regime, but continued to paint in exile or hiding, producing startlingly original works outside of the prevailing avant-gardes. A few of Laserstein’s paintings have entered American museums, whereas Muter’s major works remain entirely in Europe. Both artists are now subjects of recent exhibitions in Germany and Spain. Robert Bunkin is a figurative painter, art historian and studio instructor on the faculty of Borough of Manhattan Community College and art curator at the Staten Island Museum.. He has exhibited widely in New York City, nationally and in Italy. In 2011 he was the recipient of the John J. Newman Medal from the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic.

Workshop | Rethinking on the job market


Based on what we see in ads, it is easy to assume that to get a job we have to become something that we do not want to be. And so, we end up searching for something we do not want and will be unhappy in if we get it. Career coach Win Sheffield will address how to turn this situation around by dispelling some common misconceptions about the job market and providing practical approaches to develop an effective job campaign. The seminar will cover: * Seeing the job market from the employer’s point of view * Managing a job campaign that explores multiple targets * Approaching your network without a specific idea of your direction

Author Reading | This Atom Bomb in Me: A Nuclear Family


This Atom Bomb in Me traces what it felt like to grow up suffused with American nuclear culture in and around the atomic city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. As a secret city during the Manhattan Project, Oak Ridge enriched the uranium that powered Little Boy, the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. The city was a major nuclear production site throughout the Cold War, adding something to each and every bomb in the United States arsenal. Author Lindsey A.

Author Reading | This Is Cuba: An American Photojournalist In Cuba


Beyond the classic cars, salsa, and cigars lies a country where black markets reign, free speech and privacy are restricted, sanctions wreak havoc, and Soviet-style bureaucracy still slows the gears of a burgeoning economy. Life in Cuba is changing, as satellite dishes and internet hotspots blossom and American tourism flows. But it’s not that simple. In This Is Cuba, Havana-based journalist David Ariosto looks at Cuba over the course of nine years, showing us what’s in store for the island as it transforms. David Ariosto, an author and journalist who has worked for National Geographic, Reuters, CNN and NPR, will be joined in conversation by Cynthia Carris Alonso, a photographer and photo editor for Newsweek, Vanity Fair, and Business Week.

Author Reading | Disquieting: Essays on Silence


A book of silence and turning away. In these essays, Cynthia Cruz asks how can we live lives of resistance to the desires and ideologies of contemporary Neoliberal culture. Tarrying with those who turn away, she inhabits connections between mental illness, anorexia, refusal, silence and Neoliberalism. She explores the experience of being working-class and poor in contemporary culture, and how those who are silenced often turn to forms of disquietude that value open-endedness, complexity, and difficulty. Disquieting draws on philosophy, theory, art, film, and literature to offer alternative ways of being in this world and possibilities for building a new one.

Author Reading | Sacred Shelter: 13 Journeys of Homelessness and Healing


In a metropolis like New York, homelessness can blend into the urban landscape. For editor Susan Greenfield, however, New York is the place where a community of resilient, remarkable individuals are yearning for a voice. Sacred Shelter follows the lives of thirteen formerly homeless people, all of whom have graduated from the life skills empowerment program, an interfaith life skills program for homeless and formerly homeless individuals in New York. Through frank, honest interviews, these individuals share traumas from their youth, their experience with homelessness, and the healing they have discovered through community and faith.

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 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Concert | Exploring The Life Of Sir Lancelot du Lac


Early music ensemble Marginalia explores the life of Sir Lancelot du Lac, alternating music with readings from medieval Arthurian sources. Sir Lancelot du Lac is one of the Knights of the Round Table in the Arthurian legend. He typically features as King Arthur's greatest companion, the lord of Joyous Gard and the greatest swordsman and jouster of the age.  Marginalia is an ensemble of early music specialists dedicated to the performance of the rich, varied, and often virtuosic repertoire of medieval vocal and instrumental music. The ensemble uses vielle, rebec, medieval harp, recorder, medieval bagpipe, hurdy gurdy, percussion, and other instruments to recreate the music of medieval minstrels and singers as it could have sounded. Members: Peter Walker, voice, winds; Sarah Walker, narrator; Dongmyung Ahn, vielle; Christa Patton, harp, winds.

Opening Reception | Shape of Color: Vivid Paintings


Much theory has been written by and about artists. In the time we live, the text has taken the place of the picture to a large degree. Fortunately, today, there are artists who are bucking this trend, where the work speaks for itself, and the viewer can see a painting as a painting, rather than a cipher or the basis for textual analysis. The paintings of Roni Sherman Ramos are vivid examples. Her paintings engage the visitor’s eyes and feelings.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Fluff War / Wildlife


In Fluff War, British artist David Shrigley presents a large-scale kinetic sculpture, two neon sculptures, and 100 new drawings. As visitors approach the gallery, they are greeted by a two-part magenta neon sign bearing contradictory instructions: one reads “WEAR SHOES” and the other “DO NOT WEAR SHOES”. The storefront window signage will seem perfectly at home to a passerby, as the gallery is located in New York’s famed Fifth Avenue shopping district. Here you are initiated into the world of David Shrigley. Wildlife marks Paris-born New York-based artist Julie Curtiss’s debut solo exhibition at the gallery. New York City, nature, and tropes of femininity inspire Curtiss’ subversive and wildly imaginative paintings, sculptures, and gouaches. Rockaway Beach, Chinatown, East Village hair salons, and Upper West Side shops are the urban jungle through which Curtiss prowls for quotidian scenes, rendering them surreal as she plays with diametrically opposed forces of attraction and repulsion, humor and darkness, shadow and light.

Opening Reception | An Unkindness: A Sense of Foreboding and Threat


Robyn O’Neil’s exhibition marks a departure in process, a deconstruction of the visual and material, and an aesthetic genesis for the artist. Named for “an unkindness,” the term used to reference a flock of ravens, the exhibition impresses upon the viewer a sense of foreboding and threat that is reinforced by the centerpiece triptych. The ominous, swirling unkindness in the middle panel and the pack of wolves, jaws wide in preparation for attack, in the adjacent, confers a theme that has become central to O’Neil’s oeuvre: life on Earth is arduous and fraught with challenge.

Author Reading | Capitalism: A Conversation in Critical Theory


In this important new book, authors Nancy Fraser and Rahel Jaeggi take a fresh look at the big questions surrounding the peculiar social form known as “capitalism,” upending many of our commonly held assumptions about what capitalism is and how to subject it to critique.  They show how, throughout its history, various regimes of capitalism have relied on a series of institutional separations between economy and polity, production and social reproduction, and human and non-human nature, periodically readjusting the boundaries between these domains in response to crises and upheavals. They consider how these “boundary struggles” offer a key to understanding capitalism’s contradictions and the multiple forms of conflict to which it gives rise.

Opening Reception | Houses of Walls: An Immersive Environment 


A solo exhibition featuring a new body of work by Justin Samson. Samson will create an immersive environment of his recent interior paintings and sculpture, furthering his process of installation based art. As a collage inspired artist, Samson’s new paintings are based on loosely appropriated vintage, interior images and styles blended together in a distinct and cohesive fashion. Samson works in many mediums, determined by the concept of the project and the location of its creation. In Houses of Walls, Samson presents a fantasy vision of the nostalgic, domestic ideal and intends for viewers to imagine themselves into each individual painting. The scale is conducive to that experience, and the diptych and triptych formats create a juxtaposition and conversation within the piece.

Opening Reception | Lorna Simpson. Darkening: Paintings, Collages, Sculptures


This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery in New York. Debuting a suite of new large-scale paintings, alongside recent photographic collages and sculpture, the exhibition finds Simpson returning to and building upon themes and motifs at the center of her practice: explorations focused on the nature of representation, identity, gender, race, and history. For more than 30 years, Simpson’s powerful works have entangled viewers in an equivocal web of meaning, drawing upon techniques of collage through the use of found materials, often culled from the pages of vintage Jet and Ebony magazines. In Darkening, Simpson continues to thread dichotomies of figuration and abstraction with vast and enthralling tableaux that subsume spliced photos and fragmented text, abstracted beyond comprehension. Equally arresting and poetic, the paintings engage viewers with layers of paradox, capturing the mystifying allure of an arctic landscape in inky washes of blacks, grays, and startling blues.

Opening Reception | Palm Springs: California as Nostalgic Memory


Erwin Olaf made this body of work on location in Palm Springs, the Southern California midcentury oasis. More than fifty years after its heyday as a quintessential modern paradise, synonymous with the carefree luxury of Slim Aarons' iconic images, the landscape has changed and the myth of California as the golden promised land exists now as a nostalgic memory. Yet, Olaf’s images are intensely alluring, rife with unspoken desire, fantasy, and tension. He evokes the complexity of relationships and emotions through a cinematic language, as if to echo the artifice of a once lush vacation wonderland built in the desert.

Staged Reading | Pro Bono


Writer Natalie Bates and actors present a dramatic reading of her new play Pro Bono. Written by Natalie Bates.  Directed by Catherine Siracusa. Pro Bono focuses on an attorney faced with two cases that shake her conscience and her sense of family loyalty to their foundations. Pressured by her sister to pull strings to get child-pornography charges dropped against her college-grad nephew, Elena puts her reputation on the line with disastrous results. She carries her bitterness at the outcome of that case into a pro-bono defense of an undocumented immigrant accused of raping his step-daughter. She’s about to ‘phone it in’ for her Salvadorian client when his brother appears and opens her eyes to what a real miscarriage of justice can mean for a whole people.

Discussion | Long-Term, Large-Scale Change: Insights from the Field


This panel will explore the new approaches and perspectives that social impact practitioners are bringing to their work. Recognizing the systemic nature of the change they’re seeking, organizations are shifting how they approach change-making. They’re preparing for journeys that are more long-term, more large-scale, and more complex. How should we think about strategy in such conditions? What does success look like, and what challenges do we face? The panelists’ reflections on these questions are collected in the new book Perspectives on Impact: Leading Voices on Making Systemic Change in the Twenty-First Century, which brings together over 20 leaders to share their perspectives on how the impact “field” is tackling the complex, multi-dimensional challenges facing our world.

Film | Makala (2018): Everyday Life in Congo


Makala is an extraordinarily revealing and surprisingly gorgeous look at everyday life for a charcoal salesman in the Democratic Republic of Congo. French documentary filmmaker Emmanuel Gras follows 28-year-old Kabwita Kasongo through the entire process of making and selling charcoal: finding and cutting down a tree in the vast plains near his village in the southern region of Katanga, burying and burning the wood to create charcoal, loading multiple bulging bags of charcoal onto a rickety bicycle and walking it several days to the city of Kolwezi, where he hopes to sell his merchandise on its markets and streets. 96 min.

Gallery Talk | Artist Talk: The First Female Video Artist in Brazil


A special evening with pioneering Brazilian artist Anna Bella Geiger, an influential figure who is recognized as the first female video artist in Brazil. Geiger, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, will screen and discuss her newly preserved video works from the 1970s and ‘80s. Geiger's groundbreaking body of early performance video maps the relationship of the (often female) body, space, and place, in what the artist has termed an “anthropo-morphic cartography.” In her multi-disciplinary artwork, which also includes painting, sculpture, photography, engraving, and multi-media installation, Geiger interweaves the political and the poetic to address issues of identity and national culture.

Author Reading | “Only in the case of Israel is the eradication of an extant nation … considered a progressive demand,”


The Lions' Den: Zionism and the Left from Hannah Arendt to Noam Chomsky -- in this lively intellectual history of the political Left, cultural critic Susie Linfield investigates how eight prominent twentieth-century intellectuals struggled with the philosophy of Zionism, and then with Israel and its conflicts with the Arab world. Constructed as a series of interrelated portraits that combine the personal and the political, the book includes philosophers, historians, journalists, and activists such as Hannah Arendt, Arthur Koestler, I. F. Stone, and Noam Chomsky. In their engagement with Zionism, these influential thinkers also wrestled with the twentieth century’s most crucial political dilemmas: socialism, nationalism, democracy, colonialism, terrorism, and anti-Semitism. “Only in the case of Israel is the eradication of an extant nation … considered a progressive demand,” Linfield writes. The universes of alternate facts and bizarro-world perspectives that Linfield so adeptly portrays can only be explained by larger, governing fantasies about what Jews are and what they ought to be. Susie Linfield teaches cultural journalism at New York University.

Author Reading | The Light Years: A Memoir of a Counterculture Life


A joyous and defiant coming-of-age memoir set during one of the most turbulent times in American history. Author Chris Rush was born into a prosperous, fiercely Roman Catholic, New Jersey family. But underneath the gleaming mid-century house, the flawless hostess mom, and the thriving businessman dad ran an unspoken tension that, amid the upheaval of the late 1960s, was destined to fracture their precarious facade. His older sister Donna introduces him to the charismatic Valentine, who places a tab of acid on twelve-year-old Rush’s tongue, proclaiming: “This is sacrament. You are one of us now.”
