Concert | Accordion Festival: Sounds of the Lower East Side


In the 19th century, the accordion became a popular instrument not only in Eastern Europe, but throughout the continent. And as migrants made the trip overseas to America, many brought their accordions along with them. As a result, the instrument played a prominent role in the musical life of the Lower East Side. In those days, the sounds of the accordion evoked the old country. But today, musicians from around the globe are breathing new life and traditions into this old-time instrument. Celebrate the accordion’s longstanding legacy! In a historic sanctuary, accordionists James Keane, Ismail Butera and Angel “Arison” Gutierrez, along with host Bob Godfried, will present the instrument’s global reach. Enjoy accordion tunes from Klezmer, Irish, Dominican, Balkan and Mediterranean cultures!

Concert | 45th Annual Merry Tuba Christmas


Hundreds of tenor and bass tuba players will congregate to play Christmas carols and other crowd favorites. Tubists of all ages will line up under the famous Christmas tree and fill the plaza with the organ-line sound of low brass. Spectators are encouraged to sing along with the Christmas carols and holiday favorites. The musicians, hailing from across the country, will be conducted by Chris Wilhjelm, conductor of the famous Goldman band. Conceived by tuba virtuoso Harvey Phillips to honor his teacher, the late William J. Bell (Born Christmas Day, 1902), the first Tuba Christmas was presented at Rockefeller Center in 1974, conducted by Paul LaValle, of Band of America fame. This unusual Christmas tradition is firmly established in over 200 cities around the world.

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.

Symposium | Performing Knowledge: What Does Learning Feel Like?


What is the role of aesthetics in the production and dissemination of knowledge and research? In what new ways can we perform our knowledge, and to what new ends? Un-covering and celebrating the latent performative potential of any pedagogical situation, prominent scholars and graduate students convene to consider such basic, yet often neglected questions: what does learning feel like? Philosopher and political scientist Wendy Brown calls upon scholars to recover “what is ineffably moving, sublime, or meaningful in the humanities.” Performing Knowledge seeks to do exactly that, focusing on the Humanities’ struggles with trends of neoliberalism. Performing Lecturers include Meg Araneo, Patricia Clough (The Affective Turn), Jon McKenzie (Perform or Else) and Aneta Stojnic, and Graduate Students.

Film | Winter Light (1963) by Ingmar Bergman, One of the Most Influential Filmmakers of all Times


The film follows Tomas Ericsson, pastor of a small rural Swedish church, as he deals with an existential crisis and his Christianity. Starring Gunnar Björnstrand, Ingrid Thulin and Max von Sydow. 81 min. The film is the second in a series of thematically related films, following Through a Glass Darkly (1961) and followed by The Silence (1963), which is sometimes considered a trilogy. In it, Bergman reconsidered Through a Glass Darkly's argument that God is love, and repeated the prior film's reference to God as a monstrous spider. Ernst Ingmar Bergman (1918 – 2007) was a Swedish director, writer, and producer who worked in film, television, theatre and radio. Considered to be among the most accomplished and influential filmmakers of all time, Bergman's renowned works include Smiles of a Summer Night (1955), The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries (1957), The Silence (1963), Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), and Fanny and Alexander (1982).

Author Reading | Friday Black: struggles of young black men and women


With his debut short story collection, Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah sheds light on a modern day America full of racial violence, injustice, and characters fighting to survive it all with their humanity intact. Focusing on the struggles of young black men and women, Adjei-Brenyah delivers unforgettable instances of racism in motion and the surreal yet terrifying consequences for speaking out against it. Calling to mind modern satires by George Saunders and Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You, Friday Black uses speculative fiction to explore the dark underside of our current political moment. He will be joined in conversation by Mychal Denzel Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching: A Young Black Man's Education.

Author Reading | Veteran rock critic Robert Christgau discusses his book Is It Still Good to Ya?: Fifty Years of Rock Criticism 1967-2017


Is It Still Good to Ya? sums up the career of Village Voice stalwart Robert Christgau, who for half a century has been America's most widely respected rock critic, honoring a music he argues is only more enduring because it's sometimes simple or silly. While compiling historical overviews going back to Dionysus and the gramophone along with artist analyses that range from Louis Armstrong to M.I.A., this definitive collection also explores pop's African roots, response to 9/11, and evolution from the teen music of the '50s to an art form compelled to confront mortality as its heroes pass on.

Staged Reading | Lope de Vega's Women and Servants: A 400-Year-Old Comedy Rediscovered in 2010


Lope de Vega's Women and Servants (c. 1613-14) was recently rediscovered in an overlooked 17th-century manuscript in Madrid's Biblioteca Nacional, the comedia emerges from its 400-year sleep with a remarkable freshness: it presents a world of suave self-fashioning and accommodation, where creaky notions of honor and vengeance have virtually no place. Translated by Barbara Fuchs. Syracuse University Spanish professor Alejandro García-Reid found the volume at the BNE in 2010 while researching Spanish theater of the 16th and 17th centuries. He spent the next three years analyzing the manuscript and ensuring the attribution to Lope de Vega was accurate. Lope Félix de Vega y Carpio (1562 – 1635) was a Spanish playwright, poet, novelist and marine. He was one of the key figures in the Spanish Golden Age of Baroque literature. His reputation in the world of Spanish literature is second only to that of Cervantes, while the sheer volume of his literary output is unequalled, making him one of the most prolific authors in the history of literature. He was nicknamed "The Phoenix of Wits" and "Monster of Nature" (in Spanish: Fénix de los Ingenios, Monstruo de la Naturaleza) by Cervantes because of his prolific nature. (By his own tally, Lope de Vega wrote about 1,800 plays (although he is generally thought to have been exaggerating with the real number closer to 1,500), plus 3,000 sonnets, three novels, four novellas and nine epic poems). Lope de Vega renewed the Spanish theatre at a time when it was starting to become a mass cultural phenomenon. He defined its key characteristics, and along with Pedro Calderón de la Barca and Tirso de Molina, took Spanish Baroque theatre to its greatest heights.

Lecture | The Job Guarantee


Millions of people in the United States need jobs. Of those fortunate enough to be employed, how many people stay in jobs they hate, exploited by management or doing unconscionable work, because they feel they have no choice? How many are struggling to support themselves on unlivable wages or juggling multiple jobs just to get by? Meanwhile, crucial public services get cut, local infrastructure decays, and people's basic needs go unfilled. A federally-funded, locally-administered Job Guarantee could change all this almost immediately. Speaker Pavlina Tcherneva is Associate Professor and Chair of Economics at Bard College.

Classical Music | Klezmer Ensemble


The Columbia Klezmer Band was founded in 2000 and is directed by Jeff Warschauer, who is internationally renowned as a klezmer instrumentalist, Yiddish singer, and educator.  "Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. Played by professional musicians called klezmorim the genre originally consisted largely of dance tunes and instrumental display pieces for weddings and other celebrations. In the United States the genre evolved considerably as Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, who arrived between 1880 and 1924, came into contact with American jazz. During the initial years after the klezmer revival of the 1970s, the American sub-variety was what most people knew as klezmer, although in the 21st century musicians began paying more attention to the "original" pre-jazz traditions as revivalists including Josh Horowitz, Yale Strom and Bob Cohen have spent years doing field research in Eastern/Central Europe. Additionally, later immigrants from the Soviet Union took their surviving repertoires to the United States and Israel in the 1980s. Compared with most other European folk-music styles, little is known about the history of klezmer music, and much of what is said about it remains uncertain". Wikipedia

Mohsin Hamid. In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet in Mohsin Hamid's novel.

When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors—doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price.

Eye on Dance was a television series launched in 1981 to deepen the public’s understanding of the full spectrum of dance forms that intersect to produce American dance. An in-depth interview based series, the socially and historically framed discussions were illuminated through performance excerpts. Meredith Monk and Ping Chong discuss their work in mixed media performance with moderator Celia Ipiotis. The conversation taps into their association, common interests, and collaboration; and themes—like alienation—tackled in their works. Performance excerpts include segments of their famed 1982 film Paris; excerpts from Monk’s Break and Quarry; Chong’s Kindness; and their joint work The Games. Celia Ipiotis will be joined by panelists Art Bridgman, Daniel Madoff, and Myrna Packer for this live screening.

Discussion | Representation in Art: What Does It Mean?


Each season since 2012, artists and writers across disciplines have gathered for a year-long series devoted to unpacking artistic and cultural terms as their meaning shifts--and may become more resonant or ambiguous--over time. This year, the series will revolve around "representation," particularly as the term at once conjures critical strategies in art from previous decades; the necessity of diverse publics; and, against the backdrop of precarious governing institutions, recent impulses toward non-representative social structures on both ends of the political spectrum. The final L.A.B. conversation of the fall will feature presentations by visual artists Fia Backstrom, A.K. Burns, and Christopher K. Ho.

Performance | All Visible Directions Between Sky and Water: An Interdisciplinary Work-in-Progress on Indigenous Women


Artist Maria Hupfield and poet Natalie Diaz will present a live interdisciplinary work-in-progress based on language, movement, sound, and identities as Indigenous women -- Anishinaabek (Ontario, Canada) and Mojave (Arizona, US) -- to pose horizons as impossibility and ask whether a thing which is impossible can be possible. Diaz's writing focuses on social justice issues and her Mojave and Latina heritage. Hupfield's hand-sewn industrial felt creations are multidimensional; further activated in live performance and video they function as radical forms of collaboration, craft, and Indigenous futurity.

Concert | Home for the Holidays: A Festive Evening of Three Centuries of Italian Music


A program of music by Italian composers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries: Giulio Briccialdi, Jean-Paul Martini, Maria Theresia von Paradis, Francesco Paolo Tosti, and composer-in-residence Roberto Scarcella Perino. Giulio Briccialdi (1818 – 1881) was an Italian virtuoso flautist and composer, a technical innovator on his instrument and a professor of music. Jean-Paul-Égide Martini, (1741 – 1816) was a composer of classical music. Sometimes known as Martini Il Tedesco, he is best known today for the vocal romance "Plaisir d'amour," on which the 1961 Elvis Presley pop standard "Can't Help Falling in Love" is based. Maria Theresia Paradis (also von Paradies) (1759 – 1824), was an Austrian musician and composer who lost her sight at an early age, and for whom Mozart may have written his Piano Concerto No. 18 in B-flat major. Francesco Paolo Tosti (1846 – 1916) was an Italian, later British, composer. Tosti is remembered for his light, expressive songs, which remain in the repertoire of many noted singers, including Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras, and Andrea Bocelli.

Opening Reception | narrow distances: Award-Winning Photography


Winner of the 2018 Portfolio Prize, Ka-Man Tse’s carefully orchestrated images suggests an oblique narrative. Her protagonists appear in quiet moments of introspection: Two men embrace against the imposing Hong Kong skyline, spiked with vertiginous towers. A gender-nonconforming person regards themself in a mirror that doubles their likeness—suggesting the complexity of identity and that we all contain many selves. Ka-Man Tse is a photographer, video artist, and educator. She has exhibited her work at the Lianzhou Foto Festival, Guangdong, China; Para Site and Lumenvisum, Hong Kong; the 2016 Hong Kong Contemporary Film Festival; and Videotage’s Both Sides Now III: Final Frontiers in Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, and the UK. In the United States, her work has been shown at the Museum of Chinese in America, New York; Bronx Museum of the Arts; New York Public Library; Palm Springs Art Museum, Palm Springs, California; Cornell University, Ithaca, New York; Capricious Gallery, New York; and Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.

Party | Traditional English Afternoon Tea


English-style tea, black tea, Pally's rich tea biscuit will be served. “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” Henry James Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. While the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared. Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.

Lecture | The Formula: Quantifying Careers from Science to Art


Common wisdom goes something like this: Performance drives success, hence work hard and success will follow. But as we’ve all witnessed, that’s not always the case. This talk aims to quantify success in science and arts by realizing that while your performance is about you, your success is about “us”—meaning that success is a collective and measurable quantity that captures how your peers observe and recognize your performance. This approach allows us to explore, using the tools of science, the emergence of impact, and quantify our ability to measure and predict success. Speaker Albert-László Barabási is director at Center for Complex Network Research at Northeastern University, and holds appointments at Division of Network Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Dept of Network and Data Sciences at Central European University.

Lecture | Immigration Status and Higher Education: Evidence from a Large Public University


Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is the first large-scale immigration reform to affect undocumented immigrants in the United States in decades and offers eligible undocumented youth temporary relief from deportation and renewable work permits. While DACA has improved the economic conditions and mental health of undocumented immigrants, we do not know how DACA improves social mobility through its effect on educational attainment. This talk uses administrative data on students attending a large public university to estimate the effect of DACA on undocumented students’ educational outcomes.

His clients are people on death row — abused and neglected children who were prosecuted as adults and placed in adult prisons where they were beaten and sexually abused, and mentally disabled people whose illnesses helped land them in prison where their special needs were unmet. Bryan Stevenson is an American lawyer, social justice activist, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, and a clinical professor at New York University School of Law.

Author Reading | Toscanini: Musician of Conscience


By the late 1920s, Arturo Toscanini - then in his early sixties - was music director of La Scala in Milan and the New York Philharmonic, and beyond a doubt the most celebrated conductor in the world. But his hatred of Mussolini's fascist regime was beginning to become public knowledge. He declared that he would not perform again in Italy unless and until the fascist regime fell, and he extended his protest to Germany in 1933, when Hitler came to power, and to Austria in 1938, when that country became part of the Third Reich.

Book Club | Nikolai Gogol's Diary of a Madman and Other Stories


This collection offers an excellent introduction to the author's works. Opening a door to his bizarre world of broad comedy, fantasy, and social commentary, the title story portrays a petty official's mental disintegration as he struggles for the attention of the woman he loves. Set during the repressive rule of Nicholas I, it satirizes the bureaucratic excesses of the era. Additional tales include "The Nevski Prospect," a portrayal of the feverish pace of St. Petersburg street life, and "The Portrait," a gripping depiction of a soul's perdition. Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) left his mark as a playwright, novelist, and writer of short stories. Gogol's works remain popular with both writers and readers, who prize his originality, imaginative gifts, and sheer exuberance. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Opening Reception | Extremely absorbent and increasingly hollow: A 3-Artist Show


Extremely absorbent and increasingly hollow attends to the body’s permeability, addressing ideas of consumption, contamination, abundance, void and how value is perceived and assigned. Participating artists work across visual and live forms to investigate the ways in which certain things, when entangled with the body or stuck to the skin, are deemed unkempt, filthy, repulsive, or otherwise out of place. They complicate the notion of a discrete body as impervious to the unruly matter of the physical world and cultural signifiers of the social world.

Performance | Building Dante: Bring a Classic to Life


In 2017, Teatro delle Albe started to follow an artistic path with the objective of transfering the Italian masterpiece that triggered the start of the Italian language and literature -- The Divine Comedy -- to the stage. This performance embraces what the author defines as an “enchanting vision," able to include its focus on the whole of humanity in its diverse experience, from the obscene annoyance of Inferno (Hell) to the melancholic color change of Purgatory, to its rise to a level where vision and words turn themselves into an indescribable Paradise.
