Museums | Dutch Masterpieces: Paintings by Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer


Dutch paintings of the 17th century: the Golden Age of Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer. Through sixty-seven works of art organized thematically, In Praise of Painting orients visitors to key issues in 17th century Dutch culture--from debates about religion and conspicuous consumption to painters' fascination with the domestic lives of women. The presentation also provides the opportunity to conserve and display rarely exhibited paintings, including Margareta Haverman's A Vase of Flowers--one of only two known paintings by the artist. The exhibition takes its title from one of the period's major works of art theory, Philips Angel's The Praise of Painting (1642), a pioneering defense of realism in art.

But the United States has tried to solve this national crisis with policies that only made matters worse.

Talk | Lucian Bernhard and The Object Poster (virtual)


Design historian Steven Heller hosts an evening examining the iconic and impactful work of Lucian Bernhard. Lucian Bernhard is the putative father of the modern advertising poster. He came to be best known for the Sachplakat—or object poster, a subset of the greater Plakatstil (poster style) genre. Unlike the Jewish, Vienna-based Julius Klinger, Bernhard left Germany before 1933 and became a more variegated commercial artist, producing type face families, children's books, logos, and identity systems. This wide-ranging talk will examine Bernhard's European and American accomplishments in the design field he helped to invent.

Author Reading | Believers: Making a Life at the End of the World (virtual)


Award-winning poet and essayist Lisa Wells presents her new book, introducing trailblazers and outliers from across the globe who have found radically new ways to live and reconnect to the Earth in the face of climate change. Like many of us, Wells has spent years overwhelmed by news of apocalyptic-scale climate change and a coming sixth extinction. She did not need to be convinced of the stakes. But what can be done? Blending reportage, memoir, history, and philosophy, Wells opens up seemingly intractable questions about the damage we have done and how we might reckon with our inheritance. Believers demands transformation: If the Earth is our home, if our home is being destroyed--how then shall we live?

Discussion | Andy Warhol: A Conversation (virtual)


Join a lively conversation with Warhol biographer Blake Gopnik and art museum curators Kenneth Brummel, Art Gallery of Ontario, and Gregor Muir, Tate Modern, as they discuss this 20th Century icon. Spanning all four decades of the artist's career, the blockbuster Andy Warhol was exhibited at the Tate in early 2020 and will be featured at the Art Gallery of Ontario this summer. The conversation will explore some of the exhibition's themes, which include a reconsideration of the personal, social and political backdrop that influenced Warhol's groundbreaking art. Addressing topics such as consumerism, canonical art history, the artist's Catholic faith and the activities of New York City's countercultural underground, Warhol's vast body of work both reflected and fueled the intense cultural transformations that occurred across the globe in the second half of the twentieth century.

Jazz | A Performance by the Father of Ethno-Jazz (virtual)


Known as the father of Ethio-jazz, composer and multi-instrumentalist Mulatu Astatke rose to international fame in the 1970s and 1980s with his unique mix of American jazz and Ethiopian music, drawing comparisons to jazz giants Duke Ellington and John Coltrane. Forced off the road for a time due to the political situation in his homeland, he came roaring back in the 1990s, recording and touring as never before. Astatke’s music begins and ends with improvisation and is the product of fearless experimentation. Experience the sounds, rhythms, and textures of this pioneer of Ethiopian jazz in The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing in a performance recorded on September 9, 2016, that JazzTimes called “a spirited and entrancing set that spanned his career and spotlighted his gift for shifting fluidly between intricate, sinuous melodies and airy, atmospheric grooves.” Featuring: Mulatu Astatke, vibraphone, percussion, and keyboard James Arben, musical director, saxophonist, and flute Adam O’Farrill, trumpet Jason Lindner, keyboard Tal Mashiach, bass Daniel Freedman, drum

The pier includes a series of ecological communities representing this native landscape, including from a woodland forest to the rocky tidal zone and the Hudson River itself. One of the most unique of these native coastal environments is a manufactured rocky tidal marsh, the Tide Deck which is located on the western end of the Pier.

Play | The Two Noble Kinsmen: Shakespeare's Final Play


The Two Noble Kinsmen is a play by John Fletcher and William Shakespeare that was reprinted in a second folio edition of Beaumont and Fletcher's plays in 1679.

It is generally accepted to be The Bard's final play before he retired to Stratford-Upon-Avon and died three years later--a collaboration of an older playwright with one whose career had only begun. The play is a tragicomedy in the manner of Fletcher. Chairs are provided on a first come, first served basis and audience members are welcome to bring their own.

Dance Performance | Isadora on the Beach: Works of Isadora Duncan


Dances by Isadora, directed by Catherine Gallant, will present a live performance of works by Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) adapted for the beach environment. Duncan grew up by the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco and was fascinated by the movement of waves as she began to imagine her vision of dance as an authentic response to nature.

Among the works to be presented is "Grand March" or "Slow March," which was created in 1914 during Isadora's year at Bellevue outside Paris following the tragic deaths of her children in 1913. Originally set to the music of Franz Schubert, it has been reimagined with "Lyric for Strings" by African American composer George Walker. The program will also include "Water Study," "Tanagra Figures" and "Narcissus," all adapted for the shifting texture of sand, wind, and sky. Ensemble includes Natalia Brillante, Eleanor Bunker, Marie Carstens, Abra Cohen, Jessie King, Loretta Thomas Costumes by Ivana Drazic Audience members should bring their own seating.

Slide Lecture | Jewish Identity & Advertising: Posters in The Third Reich (virtual)


The rise of the Third Reich had an indelible impact on graphic design. Some poster artists chose to promote the Nazi cause, others fled persecution to find success in new countries, while others were murdered by the governments that once touted their work as “genius.” At the same time, prominent poster collections, like those of Julius Paul and Hans Sachs, were confiscated and dispersed, destroying some of the best archives ever created within the medium. This conversation will explore the many paths poster designers and collectors were forced to take during and after World War II. Of particular interest will be the work of Walter Herz and other Jewish posterists who emigrated to the United Kingdom to forge new identities and further shape graphic design history, contrasted with the tragic story of Hans Sachs whose landmark archive of posters was only recently restituted to his heirs.  Independent scholar Eve M. Kahn is a regular contributor of features to The New York Times, where she served as weekly Antiques columnist from 2008 to 2016. Kristina Parsons is the Leon Levy Curatorial Assistant at the Jewish Museum in New York. Suzanne Glass studied at Cambridge University, UK and at the Interpreting School of Zurich, Switzerland.

The Two Noble Kinsmen is a play by John Fletcher and William Shakespeare that was reprinted in a second folio edition of Beaumont and Fletcher's plays in 1679.

Movie in a Park | Bring Your Own Brigade (2021): Documentary by Two-Time Oscar-Nominated Filmmaker


In early November 2018, raging wildfires forced the frenzied evacuation of thousands of terrified residents from the cities of Malibu and Paradise, two very different California communities. In this documentary, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker captures the heroism and horror of that unfathomable disaster. Her character-driven exposé, Bring Your Own Brigade, also answers a question humanity can no longer afford to ignore: Why are catastrophic wildfires increasing in number and severity around the world, and can anything be done to lessen the staggering death and destruction they cause? Drawing on hundreds of hours of astonishing wildfire footage and featuring interviews with survivors, firefighters and scientists, the film reveals that short of solving global warming there are numerous, often simple steps that can be taken to not only mitigate the catastrophic devastation caused by wildfires, but restore health and balance to woodlands that have been mismanaged for far too long. But does society have what it takes to put aside short-term interests and outmoded thinking to confront a crisis that’s quite literally burning our world to the ground? 7:45 PM: Doors Open 9:00 PM: Films Begin 11:00 PM: Q&A In the event of rain, show will be rescheduled. No alcohol is permitted.

Movie in a Park | Marcel Camus' Black Orpheus (1959): Greek Myth Set During Rio's Carnival


A retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, set during the time of the Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. This is Marcel Camus' best known film, which won the Palme d'Or at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival and the 1960 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Orpheus was a musician, poet and prophet in Greek mythology. His parents were the king of Thrace Oeagrus and the muse Calliope. He was considered the best musician and poet of all, and he perfected the lyre. It was the god Apollo who taught Orpheus how to play the lyre when he was an adolescent. Orpheus joined the expedition of the Argonauts, saving them from the music of the Sirens by playing his own, more powerful music. On his return, he married Eurydice, who was soon killed by a snakebite. Overcome with grief, Orpheus ventured himself to the land of the dead to attempt to bring Eurydice back to life.
