Dance Performance | ditch: World-Premiere Dance at Sunrise


ditch explores the interactions among the forces of gentrification; the history of community activism, especially in response to Hurricane Sandy; the current pressure of development that exacerbates income inequality; as well as the ecological interactions between the life at the edge of the island in the Lower East Side. The choreography is developed from the rhythms, tones and spatial inflections of movement generated by flows of people, the traffic, weather and water along the river's edge. ditch accesses and creatively explores the embodied knowledge that signals both danger and safety. How do we sense impending disasters? How do we seek safe havens? Exploring the possibilities of signaling through murky territory and dense movement, the choreography asks questions such as: What appears as a beacon? What is an orienting feature in an unstable system? The piece investigates squeezing and tightening as both a generator of movement and as choreographic strategy. The work aims to emanate an urgency and disquiet that drives the performer and viewer towards unexpected openings. Composer and sound artist: Jeff Kolar Performers/dancers: Evie Allison, Madeline Mellinger, Kaitlin Fox Costume designer: Susan Becker

Festival | Green Zine and Photo Book Fair


The term “green” is used as an adjective to describe someone to be inexperienced, fresh, brand-new. Zines are typically published with a sense of urgency — originally as a method to subvert glossy mainstream publications, zines have now become an alternative method of disseminating information outside of the internet. This fair will feature a selection of firsts, or “green” zinemakers, and emerging publications by both established and first time independent publishers. Landscape artist and activist Babbie Dunnington, in collaboration with a group of Teens, will produce the Green Reading Room as an attempt to foster independent publishing.

Concert | Fete de la Musique: Two Pioneering French Groups


Zdar will represent the electronic duo Cassius, who first started working together in 1988, producing albums for the iconic French rapper MC Solaar and doing remixes for the likes of Neneh Cherry, Bjork, Daft Punk, Air and Depeche Mode. Producers Philippe Cerboneschi and Hubert Blanc-Francard--better known as Philippe Zdar and Boom Bass--have since harnessed the pop appeal with an underground heart that defined the French house wave they contributed to in the late 90s. They're joined by Les Negresses Vertes--a group so named for the verbal abuse directed at its members at an early concert--who mix Latin, rai, and folk with a punk sensibility to make unique dance music.

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.

Dance Performance | The Listening School: New York Dance Premiere


Social choreographer Ernesto Pujol brings his multi-year project to the festival in the form of a public performative research process and a silent durational performance: The Listeners. The project was created in response to the urgent need to listen empathically in order to support democracy in America and abroad. Pujol's Listening School will seek performative engagement for three days across Lower Manhattan's urban riverbeds of listening flow. Dressed in Indigo Blues, thirteen artists will pursue the public's roadside discourse on listening. Their open process will culminate in The Listeners, a performance as a formal listening vessel embodying stillness in the midst of flow.

Author Reading | Ghettos, Tramps, and Welfare Queens: Down and Out on the Silver Screen


Stephen Pimpare's book explores how American movies have portrayed poor and homeless people from the silent era to today. It provides a novel kind of guide to social policy, exploring how ideas about poor and homeless people have been reflected in popular culture and evaluating those images against the historical and contemporary reality. Richly illustrated and examining nearly 300 American-made films released between 1902 and 2015, Ghettos, Tramps, and Welfare Queens finds and describes representations of poor and homeless people and the places they have inhabited throughout the century-long history of U.S. cinema.

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.

Lesson | 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.

Tour | Black Gotham Experience Tour


Black Gotham Experience was founded in 2010 by artist/historian Kamau Ware in New York City. This project celebrates the impact of the African Diaspora with historic walks, media and signature events. Sarah’s Fire is the second of five core stories that make up the Black Gotham Experience. The tale takes place on day two of British New York in 1664 on the southern tip of the island of Manhattan (a place home to both free and enslaved Black people), in the small town known as Land of the Blacks. This walking tour illustrates the peculiar universe of urban slavery in a port city with deep ties to the sugar plantations of the West Indies. A key persona in this story is an enslaved woman named Sarah who is one of 29 people that participate in the first militarized Black rebellion on the island of Manhattan that took place April 6, 1712. Start times: 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. Duration: 90 minutes

Opening Reception | Water Thief: Ten Years of Works on Paper


Nathlie Provosty’s third solo exhibition with the gallery features ten years of the artist’s works on paper. These pieces, almost entirely in water media, feel familiar while being completely awash in more novel reflections of form, color, and marking. The show’s title, Water Thief, comes from the translation of the Greek word “clepsydra,” an ancient device that keeps time by measuring the flow of water. Taken as a group, all of the works mark the passage of time—time as a medium of exchange as well as a propeller of thought.

Author Reading | Heels of Steel: The Queen of New York Construction


She’s shattering the glass ceiling one building at a time. Bridget Steele’s father taught her two things: how to build and how to fight. With those skills, she created her own company and began building for New York City’s elite. Often the only woman in the room, she’s faced sexism, corruption and harassment, but armed with her designer hard hat and steel-toed stilettos, she’s up for any challenge. Bridget figured out quickly she had to be ten times better just to be considered equal.

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.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Family Album / As the Plane Was Reaching Cruising Altitude


Margot Bergman's Family Album Chicago-based artist Margot Bergman presents recent paintings and, for the first time ever, photographs. Bergman (b. 1934) has sustained an active painting practice in Chicago since the 1950s and honed a peerless style of figuration. For the last 15 years her subject matter has focused on individual faces of imagined people, predominantly women. Her style is characterized by active expressionistic brush work, unconcerned with symmetry, realistic proportions, and traditional notions of femininity. Nathalie Du Pasquier's As the Plane Was Reaching Cruising Altitude Nathalie Du Pasquier presents an installation of colorful geometric paintings on paper and monochromatic wooden objects, using the architectural plan of the third floor gallery as a field for her composition. Juxtaposing two-dimensional patterns and three-dimensional constructions, she examines the relationship between pictorial space and actual planes in the surrounding environment.

Author Reading | The Dictionary As Data: What The Online Dictionary Tells Us About English


What makes a person look up a word? When do you use a dictionary? Looking up a word in the dictionary is an intimate act for each of us as individuals, but the words sought by millions of users put together tell us a surprising story about the English language. Peter Sokolowski presents this fascinating insight into language and popular culture. By watching trends of lookups on a heavily consulted online dictionary, lexicographers track which entries are being consulted at any given moment. Some words are perennial sources of curiosity, while others show spikes of interest triggered by news from the worlds of politics, entertainment, and sports. Some words express the general mood of the culture; others reflect a poignant specificity. At the same time, this Web traffic tells a story about the changing business of dictionaries--and what is expected of a dictionary in the 21st century. Peter Sokolowski is Editor at Large at Merriam-Webster. He has written definitions for many of Merriam-Webster’s dictionaries, is active as a blogger, podcaster, and speaker on language, and has served as pronouncer for spelling bees worldwide. He was named among TIME's 140 Best Twitter Feeds of 2013.

You may be avoiding networking because you think it is dark magic requiring you to be a super salesman who imposes on hundreds of contacts so you can ask total strangers for a job.  based on what we hear, who could blame you?  In fact networking is widely misunderstood.  Networking, properly done, is an opportunity to be ourselves, talking with people naturally about things that interest us both so that over time we built our connection to mutual benefit. Coach Win Sheffield will look at how we approach our contacts and re-imagine networking as something we can do naturally and with ease. Learn: * How to broaden who you reach out to * What kinds of networking are best suited to you * How to convey your value to your audience

Dance Performance | ditch: World-Premiere Dance


ditch explores the interactions among the forces of gentrification; the history of community activism, especially in response to Hurricane Sandy; the current pressure of development that exacerbates income inequality; as well as the ecological interactions between the life at the edge of the island in the Lower East Side. The choreography is developed from the rhythms, tones and spatial inflections of movement generated by flows of people, the traffic, weather and water along the river's edge. ditch accesses and creatively explores the embodied knowledge that signals both danger and safety. How do we sense impending disasters? How do we seek safe havens? Exploring the possibilities of signaling through murky territory and dense movement, the choreography asks questions such as: What appears as a beacon? What is an orienting feature in an unstable system? The piece investigates squeezing and tightening as both a generator of movement and as choreographic strategy. The work aims to emanate an urgency and disquiet that drives the performer and viewer towards unexpected openings.

Jazz | Six Time Grammy Winning Jazz Pianist And More


Chucho Valdes, with last year's Jazz Bata 2, "burnishes his stature as a towering Afro-Cuban pianist of our time." (WBGO) He performs along with Cuban percussionist Dafnis Prieto and his electrifying quartet. Chucho Valdes is a Cuban pianist, bandleader, composer and arranger whose career spans over 50 years. An original member of the Orquesta Cubana de Musica Moderna, in 1973 he founded the group Irakere, one of Cuba's best-known Latin jazz bands. Both his father, Bebo Valdes, and his son, Chuchito, are pianists as well. He has won six Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards. In his review of a Si o Si Quartet performance for The New York Times, Nate Chinen praised Prieto as "a spectacularly proficient Cuban drummer" and hailed his music as "dynamic to the extreme ... a slippery amalgam of complex polyrhythm and incantatory melody."

Concert | A Young Band’s Affection for Bossa Nova, Classic Hip-Hop, and 90s Rap


The video for Phony Ppl’s “Before You Get A Boyfriend” opens to these five friends from Crown Heights in a familiar pose: hanging out on the front stoop of a Brooklyn brownstone. Singer Elbee Thrie’s warm vocals blend with laid-back grooves to showcase this young band’s affection for bossa nova, classic hip-hop, and 90s rap. Since the release of their album Yesterday’s Tomorrow in 2015—highlighted by Rolling Stone after a rock critic saw the group performing in a subway station—Phony Ppl has performed with Erykah Badu, Fetty Wap, and the Roots. They are joined on the stage with an opening performance by indie soul singer Conya Doss, whose smooth, soaring vocals have won her a dedicated following even without the support of a major record label.

In and on a windy day it got caught on a tree, Vivero explores how her identity as an immigrant in the US is defined by living in the rural American midwest.

Opening Reception | Cutting the Stone: Group Show


This show began with Hieronymus Bosch’s painting titled "Cutting the Stone, or The Extraction of the Stone of Madness or The Cure of Folly." Against the backdrop of a bucolic summer landscape, the painting depicts a sinister scene in which a 'surgeon' wearing an upside-down funnel on his head extracts an object from the skull of a patient. Instead of the stone, what the doctor removes is the bulb of a waterlily, possibly an allusion to lust. The exhibition develops upon our ongoing conversations with poet and scholar Jackie Wang. The themes of the show have been instigated both by the painting itself and by a text (featured below) written by Wang as a part of these exchanges. This text reflects upon the meaning of Bosch’s painting, among other themes of pain, desire, communication and the landscape of dreams:

Opening Reception | How Much Is the Fish?: An Unlikely Gathering of Brothers


In Gabriele Edlbauer's sculptures, strangely indeterminate animal heads grow out of bodies marked as male. It is unclear if the life-sized figures are humans half-transformed into animals or animals with human properties - they are put into a metonymic tension where it is no longer certain who represents whom or what. By looking at the group of sculptures, it becomes clear that these figures show an unlikely gathering of brothers, connected through a mutual activity: fishing.

An exhibition of works by Sarah Faux, Haley Josephs, RJ Messineo, and Wang Chen. Across painting, video, and collage, Pleasure in Precariousness surveys a slippery and open corporeality, rendering the self/body/subject as variously disembodied, fragmented, agape, multiplied, absent, or implied. A searching quality threads the works, aided by the artists’ respective (and often shared) explorations into eros, play, touch, and interiority, as does a common inclination for painting.

Author Reading | The Plague War: America's War on AIDS in Africa


Emily Bass previews her forthcoming book, The Plague War—the first history of America's war on AIDS in Africa. Since 2003, America’s war on AIDS in Africa has been fought and financed primarily through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, or PEPFAR, which was launched by George W. Bush in the same State of the Union address in which he declared war on Iraq. PEPFAR has been been reauthorized three times, under both the Obama and Trump Administrations, and has sustained bipartisan support across eight Congresses. It is also the product of one of the most successful anti-capitalist global activist movements in the 21st century.  Emily Bass, who has has been covering PEPFAR since its inception, will tell the story of the activism, terrorism, radicalism and patriotism that launched the war against a virus which has been called the most successful American foreign aid since the Marshall Plan.  Bass has spent more than twenty years writing about and working on HIV/AIDS in America and East and Southern Africa. Her writing has appeared numerous publications, including Esquire, The Lancet, Ms., n+1, Out, POZ, Slice, and has received notable mention in Best American Essays. The Plague War is forthcoming from PublicAffairs Press in 2020.

Author Reading | New York's Original Penn Station: The Rise and Fall of an American Landmark


After decades of looking for a way to connect passengers directly to Manhattan, the Pennsylvania Railway accomplished what few had imagined: building tunnels underneath the Hudson and East rivers. This book chronicles the story of Penn Station from the laying of the first tracks to its demise in the early 20th century when it was torn down. Through its destruction, the historic preservation movement was born. Using original interviews with experts, archival & documentary research, and historic photos, author Paul Kaplan brings new life to one of America's most beloved buildings. This talk highlights the unlikely story of a building that was once one of the most beautiful stations in the world, "built for the ages" --but lasted only 52 years. Paul will show photos of the original Penn Station as well as of its planners and architects, and will link the preservation movement that emerged to modern day efforts like those of the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy's aim to save historic synagogues. Since this presentation is being held in a very historic synagogue, following the talk, you will have the opportunity to view the sanctuary, a thriving, engaged and welcoming Modern Orthodox Jewish community in the heart of the East Village, originally St. Marks Lutheran Church, spiritual home of the German congregation that lost 1,000 parishioners in the General Slocum disaster.

Screening | AIDS in the News 1983-1986: Journalism, Medicine, Government, and Prejudice


In 1983, television producer and journalist Joseph Lovett successfully pleaded with ABC executives to create the first investigative reports on AIDS for network TV. This event presents the pioneering 20/20 segment he produced, and other selected video clips of his early reporting that highlight the responsibility and difficulties of reporting on the epidemic during a decade of discrimination. Joining Lovett for a discussion following the screening are Susan Martin and Sally Morrison, both of whom were on the front lines with Dr. Mathilde Krim in the tumultuous early days of the AIDS crisis.
