Boule de Suif (“Ball of Fat”) is the nickname given to a well-known prostitute who finds herself traveling in a coach with conventionally respectable people through Prussian-occupied France during wartime. The “nice” people contemptuously ignore her, except when she offers them food during the long journey. The travelers are detained by a Prussian officer who will not allow the coach to proceed until Boule de Suif gives herself to him, which she refuses on principle to do. Ironies abound in the story, contrasting Boule de Suif’s authentic principles and generosity with her bourgeois fellow passengers’ shallow platitudes and coldheartedness. Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a French writer, remembered as a master of the short story form, and as a representative of the naturalist school of writers, who depicted human lives and destinies and social forces in disillusioned and often pessimistic terms. “Boule de Suif” is one of his best works.

On January 20, 2015, The Public Theater premiered a new musical on Ron Chernow’s 832-page biography of U.S. Treasury founder Alexander Hamilton and set off a theater revolution. Casting only people of color as the Founding Fathers and adeptly blending hip-hop and Broadway showstoppers in ways that felt both authentic and exhilarating, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name across America. New Yorker writer and host Adam Gopnik and special guests, including actor Christopher Jackson, the show’s original George Washington, delve into the genesis of Broadway’s hottest ticket.

By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force. In his works Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) explored philosophical, social, and political themes, with stories dominated by monopolistic corporations, alternative universes, authoritarian governments, and altered states of consciousness.

How are women, and artists, “seen” and judged by their age, race, and looks? And how does this seeing change, depending upon what is asked of the viewer? In her new memoir, Old in Art School, best-selling historian and visual artist Nell Painter explores these questions with curiosity, openness, and joy—the joy of embracing creativity, dreams, the importance of hard work, and the stubborn determination of your own value. She will be joined in conversation to discuss this and more with Sarah Lewis, esteemed scholar, curator, and author of The Rise. First Come, First Seated. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission.

During the 20th century, the relationship between capitalism and democracy seemed (to the mainstream) a solid one. Yet, not all felt this way. In 1944 an economist called Karl Polanyi wrote a book which challenged this idea in the wake of the events which lead to fascist Europe. Writer Caleb Crain makes an analysis of Polanyi’s relevance to our own turbulent times through a review of author Robert Kuttner’s Can Democracy Survive Global Capitalism? Crain has published book reviews and essays in publications including The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The London Review of Books, The Nation, The New York Times Book Review, Out and The New Republic. He also published the non-fiction book American Sympathy: Men, Friendship, and Literature in the New Nation.

The exhibition explores the confluence of art, love, science, and religion in the extraordinary art of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America’s first female scientific illustrators. Her marriage in 1821 to Amherst College professor Edward Hitchcock cemented a years-long friendship and collaboration based on a bedrock of faith and science, mutual respect, close observation, and mental capacity for the largest of ideas. Orra White exhibited a prodigious scientific mind and abundant artistic talent at an early age. The exhibition traces her development from schoolgirl projects to highly accomplished renderings of the natural scenery of the Connecticut River Valley used in her husband’s many geology publications. Less well known are colorful paintings on cotton—some more than twelve feet long—that were used to illustrate her husband’s many college lectures on geology, botany, zoology, and anatomy. In these, Orra White Hitchcock communicated complex scientific principles in abstract visual terms that now appear gorgeously fresh and modern. With: Stacy C. Hollander, acting director of the museum.

In these, Orra White Hitchcock communicated complex scientific principles in abstract visual terms that now appear gorgeously fresh and modern.

In Dag Solstad's novel, a diplomat is rising through the ranks of the Norwegian foreign office, caught between his public duty to support foreign wars in the Middle East and his private disdain of Western intervention. His son joins the Norwegian SAS to fight in the Middle East, despite being specifically warned against such a move by his father, which leads to catastrophic, heartbreaking consequences. Told exclusively in footnotes to an unwritten novel, this is Solstad's radically unconventional novel about how we experience the passing of time: how it fragments, drifts, quickens, and how single moments can define a life.

Today: Tony Oursler is an American artist born in 1957. He truly revolutionized certain aspects of projection by supressing the frame of the screen. Oursler uses different mediums such as video, film, photography, handmade objects, sculpture, computers, the web, and also elaborate soundtracks. Noise, image, and light are important devices composing the artist’s work. The visual sensations of the viewer are heightened as the artist ingenuously occupies the space with these projections (characters hidden under the stairs, projections of faces on clouds of smoke and trees in the middle of New York).

You’ve worked hard through the interview process and, at last, you get the offer. Then, we are often so grateful to get the offer, or worried that it will fall through, that we just accept the job and spend years trying to catch up. It doesn’t need to be that way and you do not need to become a hard-bitten professional negotiator.   By learning on how to conduct your negotiation and more importantly, how to position yourself so you get a better offer in the first place, you can end up with a job you like and be paid fairly.                               Join career coach Win Sheffield to learn some simple steps to be a better negotiator, maximizing the bottom line for all parties.

Artist Elia Alba will stage The Supper Club, inviting a select group of artists and cultural leaders of African-American, Latin American, African, South Asian and Caribbean descent for a dinner conversation. Addressing issues of art, life, pop culture, politics, gender and race, her goal is to create forums for meaningful social and cultural criticism, as well as create a critical historical archive, through a broad variety of creative voices, cultural, social, political and economic backgrounds, and a diverse set of critical perspectives. The Supper Club is a multi-faceted art project comprised of an ongoing series of socially engaged dinners in which discussions on race and visual culture have taken place since 2012; photographic portraits of nearly 60 artists of color, who have participated in the dinner conversations; and a book of the portraits and text related to the dinner conversations to be published in October of this year. Since its inception, the dinners have evolved to include over 400 participants. By bringing different perspectives and experiences to the table, the project aims to weigh in on the historical significance of the current moment and the enduring power of art, food, and conversation in our everyday lives. This will be the first time the dinners are open to the public. All conversations will be recorded and photographed, transcribed, and published—both online and as a booklet that will be available later in the year. Members of the public are encouraged to participate as audience members. As such, you'll become both an active listener and observer, being able to wander around the table participants, listen to what they are saying, and be inspired to find new entry points to, and perspectives on, these issues. \
