Symposium | Points of Interest: New Research on American Weathervanes (online)


Weathervanes have historically served as tools for farmers, sailors, and others to predict the wind’s direction, and fanciful, imaginative forms designed to captivate and delight viewers from below. Over time, these works have also become ritual objects imbued with stories, as well as signifiers of communal importance, individual identity, patriotism, status, and romanticized, bygone eras. This virtual symposium will showcase new research examining the rich and complex layers of meaning found within American weathervanes. This is a symposium organized in conjunction with the current exhibition American Weathervanes: The Art of the Winds.

Slide Lecture | Anne Frank's Europe: Before, During and After Her Diary (livestream)


Take a virtual tour of the places throughout Europe associated with Anne Frank (1929-1945). While the basics of Anne's life, as depicted in her diary, are known to many, some of the most noteworthy aspects of this time are not well known. In addition, the period of her life before and after the 26 months covered in her diary are not nearly as familiar as they should be. Review Anne's tragic and inspiring life (before, during and after the diary) through the places in Germany, the Netherlands and Poland connected to her.

Book Signing | Ursula: Photographs Examining Women in Sci-Fi Tropes


Hannah Whitaker's book of photography imagines embodied forms of technology long central to sci-fi narratives and often gendered as female, subservient, and sexualized. Immersed in techno-futuristic design tropes, Whitaker's photographs--at once playful, maximalist and estranging--are accompanied by texts by David Levine and Dawn Chan.

Discussion | A Discussion of the Classic Film All About Eve (online)


A talk-back on the 1950 film with Bette Davis, a backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington.

Performance | Notes towards becoming a spill: An Experimental Opera


Philadelphia-born, Pittsburgh-based artist Shikeith will create an experimental opera that tangles history, myth, and biography into an epic story of metamorphoses, using the elemental nature of the beach--the ocean, the ebb and flow of the tide, and the never-ending sand--to explore transformation in all its forms. The aesthetic and staging of Shikeith's first major performance is inspired by his artistic contemplations on hauntology, a concept referring to the return or persistence of elements from the past along with African-American histories attached to the color blue. Working with choreographer Morgan Bobrow-Williams, musical artist Rashad McPherson, and costume designer Carlos Soto, as well as an array of performers from inside the New York queer community, the artist will re-contextualize dominant ideas of Black masculinity in a tale of a contemporary man whose identity is, in part, marked by the history of American colonialism.

Performance | Prowling the Abyss: A Modern Medusa Hosts an Evening of Comedy


The creator and solo performer becomes Medusa – a modern incarnation of a mythical creature – who hosts an evening of comedy. Her show falls apart as the guests appear and bring with them traumas and dreams: Butter Sandwich strains to share poetic insights about love but needs subtitles because she can’t get off of the floor. Tremble Lip, a breathy, sweet femme, just wants to ride in cars and drink milkshakes with the butch of her dreams. In a performance combining text and physical theater, Light and her collaborators guide their audience through a variety of tropes dealing with outright and hidden forms of misogyny to reassemble the fragmented spirit of queer femininity.

Performance | Sounding Board: Scenes from Domestic Life (online)


Known for her critically acclaimed paintings, Tschabalala Self will present her first live performance in the form of brief scenes from a play that she has written and directed. Taking place on a stage designed by the artist as a sculpture that closely resembles her collage-paintings, a male and female actor will perform scenes of dialogue using humor and exaggerated sincerity in a conversation that ranges from literal to nonsensical, to explore emotional communication, gender roles and power play within intimate relationships. A Boney M cover band will perform some of their greatest hits to emphasize moments of the staged drama, akin to a chorus in a Greek play. The sculpture-esque stage--set in the amphitheater bandstand of Jackie Robinson Park in Central Harlem--will be designed and painted by Self, using the brightly colored geometry of her paintings. Self will design costumes and footwear for the performers, who appear to step out of her paintings onto the stage, bringing the domestic scenes she depicts in her canvases to life.

Performance | Botched Garden of Earthly Delights - III Acts: Performance Art


Human decline is accelerating each day and will not recover. The reckless pace of our daily consumption and simultaneous quest to keep outdated ideas alive only serves to limit new forms of expression. Regardless, new and deformed knowledge will rise. Who are the predatory ones, the environmental villains? And who deserves to live in this toxic new mass habitat full of monsters, mermaids, and mythical hybrids? Sofia Moreno's work is a trans-noir experience of intimacy and pleasure. The exhibition unfolds and is ultimately realized through three interconnected live performances that speak to the erotic, the fantastical, and the spiritual. Staged in a dying landscape, each act delivers stories of self-transformation from imagined pasts and futures. Moreno performs sacred anthropology—excavating a decade of footage, re-creating objects on-site, and burying personal relics from her archive. The works call upon personal mythologies and material histories, practices of gender, environmental terrorism, and the ancient roots of perversion. Moreno’s art confronts the violence of medical waste and industrial capitalism, and the fundamental relationship of those systems to her trans body.

The book studies how neorealist texts reflected and performed the contentious conditions of their creation, not just in their narrative but also in their form, language, structure.

From social media monitoring to mapping the coronavirus pandemic to self-driving cars, AI has defined our recent past and will continue to be central to our collective, global future. This event will explore how Africans on the continent and in the diaspora are contributing to the field and building a pipeline of talent of people of African descent. The conversation will also discuss how these leaders are addressing the political and ethical intersections of justice and technology as well as taking action on the inherent bias of artificial intelligence and its ramifications on our past, present, and future. Speakers will include Mutale Nkonde (Founder of AI for the People), Jackie Mwaniki (Fraym), and Vukosi Marivate (University of Pretoria). The conversation will be moderated by The Africa Center’s CEO, Uzodinma Iweala.

Discussion | A Discussion of Soros (2019): From Holocaust Survivor to Billionaire (online)


Billionaire Holocaust survivor George Soros is one of the most influential and controversial figures of our time. Famous for betting against the Bank of England in 1992 and making a billion dollars in one day, he is maligned by ideologues on both the left and the right for his public activism—and has become a symbol of Jews for many antisemites. This program will feature an exclusive panel discussion with the director Jesse Dylan and producer Priscilla Cohen, and will be moderated by Jessica Shaw, host of EW Live on Sirius XM.

Book Discussion | Anita Hill Discusses Her Book Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence (online)


In 1991, Anita Hill began something that's still unfinished work. The issues of gender violence, touching on sex, race, age, and power, are as urgent today as they were when she first testified. Believing is a story of America's three decades long reckoning with gender violence, one that offers insights into its roots, and paths to creating dialogue and substantive change. It is a call to action that offers guidance based on what this brave, committed fighter has learned from a lifetime of advocacy and her search for solutions to a problem that is still tearing America apart. Anita Hill draws on her years as a teacher, legal scholar, and advocate, and on the experiences of the thousands of individuals who have told her their stories, to trace the pipeline of behavior that follows individuals from place to place: from home to school to work and back home. In measured, clear, blunt terms, she demonstrates the impact it has on every aspect of our lives, including our physical and mental wellbeing, housing stability, political participation, economy and community safety, and how our descriptive language undermines progress toward solutions. And she is uncompromising in her demands that our laws and our leaders must address the issue concretely and immediately. Anita Hill is University Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women's and Gender Studies at Brandeis University. After the 1991 Senate confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, Hill became a leading figure in the fight for women's rights and against gender-based violence. She has written for The New York Times and Newsweek, and is a sought-after speaker.

Discussion | Public Health, Vaccine Passports, & Surveillance (virtual)


This conversation explores the tensions between privacy and public health surveillance, following the contours of both contemporary and historical debates. As COVID-19 brings incredible weight to every public health decision, we must closely examine novel tracking technologies such as smartphone-based contact tracing, electronic vaccine credentials, and new vaccine passports for international travel. Frequently, the public is presented with the dichotomy of privacy vs. public health, but the reality of this schism in practice is unclear. New technologies raise pressing concerns not only around equity, but also efficacy, as public health officials, technologists, and advocates debate whether these systems actually work to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Crucially, as both the public and private sectors race to respond to the emergency, they are building systems that may become part of our technological landscape in perpetuity. This conversation will also include historical comparisons to previous pandemics and epidemics, including HIV/AIDS, and the criminalization and travel restrictions of those living with HIV.

Research methods will include rage at landlords, trash as divination, and more. Visitors will be invited into the space of Tatarsky’s research.

Lecture | Collective Memory in Contemporary Black Art (online)


This session looks at the ways contemporary Black artists draw on collective memory to play with, challenge, and transform notions of identity.

Discussion | Harvey Milk: Gay Jewish Icon (online)


Harvey Milk—eloquent, charismatic, and a smart-aleck—was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, but he had not even served a full year in office when he was shot by a homophobic fellow supervisor. Milk’s assassination at the age of 48 made him the most famous gay man in modern history.  Before finding his calling as a politician, Milk variously tried being a schoolteacher, a securities analyst on Wall Street, a supporter of Barry Goldwater, a Broadway theater assistant, a bead-wearing hippie, the operator of a camera store, and organizer of the local business community in San Francisco. He rejected Judaism as a religion, but he was deeply influenced by the cultural values of his Jewish upbringing and his understanding of antisemitism and the Holocaust.  This program explores Milk’s life, death, and legacy with Lillian Faderman, a distinguished scholar of LGBTQ history and the author of Harvey Milk: His Lives and Death. Faderman will be joined by Eric Marcus, creator of the podcasts Making Gay History and Those Who Were There: Voices From the Holocaust.

His artwork was a precursor to OpArt , and more broadly, an artistic phenomenon that has seeped into the consciousness of contemporary culture.

Opening Reception | A Thousand Other Things: Crowded and Confused Interiors


The fourth exhibition of paintings by Allison Gildersleeve. While previous paintings often lingered on the tangled rocky New England landscape of her youth, with this new series Gildersleeve has shifted her painterly gaze onto crowded and confused interiors, born of this seemingly endless year of stay-at-home suffocation. With a sleight of hand, surfaces peek out from stacks of books, tiny lit hallways beckon from the back, and sailboats from afar bleed into the inside. The overwhelming feeling is of luxuriating in the illogic of painting, but with the stifling sense of being locked in one’s familiar environment, every object and viewpoint refracted from the cumulative hours spent staring at the same spot. The title of the exhibition, “A Thousand Other Things”, could refer to this imaginary multiplying, or to the sense of the many longed for things we may have been denied, the dreams of what will change when the pandemic’s hold abates.

Author Reading | American Hotel: The Waldorf-Astoria and the Making of a Century (online)


Historian David Freeland recounts the history of not just an American hotel, but, arguably, the American hotel. From the opening as the Waldorf at its first location at Fifth Avenue at 33rd Street in 1893, then more than doubling in size in 1897 into the Waldorf-Astoria, the hostelry rose to prominence on the local, national, and international stage. Opening for business on October 1, 1931, the new uptown Waldorf-Astoria struggled through the Depression, but rose to unparalleled prominence in the postwar years. Functioning like an American palace, the Waldorf served as a favored venue for United Nations diplomats and the hotel of choice for American Presidents until its shuttering in 2017. Freeland is also the author of Automats, Taxi Dances and Vaudeville: Excavating Manhattan's Lost Places of Leisure and Ladies of Soul.

Tender tendrils and fabric-fingers, rock-faces and moss-feet, dreams of all kinds, ghosts, mirrors, stories of crossings - a relentless richness resides in overlaps and blurred boundaries. The works in this exhibition offer an antidote to rigid categories. In an era of isolation, they provide poetic relief by gently puncturing borders, actively creating kinship.

Discussion | Filmmaker Talks About Her Work


Artist Diane Severin Nguyen with curator Sohrab Mohebbi for a conversation on If Revolution Is a Sickness, Nguyen’s solo exhibition. The exhibition is built around the new moving image work. Set in Warsaw, Poland, the film loosely follows the character of an orphaned Vietnamese child who grows up to be absorbed into a South Korean pop-inspired dance group. Widely popular within a Polish youth subculture, K-pop is used by the artist as a vernacular material to trace a relationship between Eastern Europe and Asia with roots in Cold War allegiances.

Author Reading | Soul of the Hurricane: The Perfect Storm and an Accidental Sailor (online)


Nelson Simon's book is an unlikely and harrowing true account of his experience sailing into Hurricane Grace. It was October 1991, and Simon didn’t want to sign up as a last-minute crew member to transport a Norwegian schooner from Brooklyn to Bermuda. But one thing led to another, and there he was. What did it matter that he had practically no sailing experience? The eight other crew members had plenty—they just needed an extra pair of hands. What could possibly go wrong?

While Bergen today is a modern, progressive and safe city, in the 1500s and 1600s it was regarded as one of the most dangerous places in Scandinavia, with a murder rate comparable to that of New York City during prohibition. As various merchants were coming into Bergen after months alone at sea, they would drink lots of alcohol, fight over women, and often get into trouble. Also, during this time there were some of the largest witch trials in Scandinavia. This was all in an area that's now regarded as one of the nicest places to live!

Amsterdam is almost 800 years old. With an often bloody history, it's not surprising that Amsterdam's ancient streets and monuments are said to be frequent by a few restless spirits. Despite the fact that most locals do not believe in ghosts, there are still numerous stories of restless spirits that appear mainly at night. Visit the most haunted places in the nighttime (local time). Hear the stories about witches, murder and terrible diseases and maybe see or hear one of the ancient ghosts yourself.
