On Henry David Thoreau with Laura Dassow Walls - 92nd Street Y
December 11, 2017 - New York

The inner lives of great people are often more mysterious and fascinating than their public lives. Dr. Gail Saltz, the author, psychoanalyst and contributor to the Today show, invites experts and brings her own expertise to bear as she examines the psychology of people who have shaped history. "Walden. Yesterday I came here to live." That entry from the journal of Henry David Thoreau, and the intellectual journey it began, would by themselves be enough to place Thoreau in the American pantheon. His attempt to "live deliberately" in a small woods at the edge of his hometown of Concord has been a touchstone for individualists and seekers since the publication of Walden in 1854. But there was much more to Thoreau than his brief experiment in living at Walden Pond. A member of the vibrant intellectual circle centered on his neighbor Ralph Waldo Emerson, he was also an ardent naturalist, a manual laborer and inventor, a radical political activist, and more. Laura Dassow Walls talks with Dr. Saltz about Thoreau's quixotic, mischievous and many-sided nature.

When David Became Goliath: the Legacy of the Six Day War - 92Y
December 12, 2017 - Upper East Side

How has Judaism changed in the fifty years since the Six Day War? How have we changed? As we learn from our past and look towards our future, how do we use power justly to make it a catalyst for our values? For two millennia, the Jewish people were powerless; in 1967, Israel took ownership of the sovereignty that was granted in 1948. The enormity of the victory of the Six Day War gave Israel access to power in a way that continues to transform Jewish life half a century later. Rabbi Donniel Hartman speaks on the legacy of this historic event, followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein.

Frank Sinatra Sings Richard Rodgers - 92nd Street Y
December 12, 2017 - New York

Will Friedwald, feature writer for The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair and the author of nine books on popular music, presents curated video clips from his extensive vintage collection to illustrate the great artistry of the performers and composers of the American Songbook. The presentations will be driven both by a profundity of rare and fascinating video footage, nearly all of which hasn't been seen publicly in decades (not available on home video or YouTube) and his own incisive commentary. In honor of the 102nd birthday of the Chairman of the Board, we focus on Sinatra's 50-year-relationship with Richard Rodgers who, in both of his key collaborations wrote many of Sinatra's most familiar classic songs. From the wit and warmth of Rodgers & Hart classics, like "My Funny Valentine" and "The Lady is a Tramp," to the deep universal truths of Rodgers and Hammerstein, like "Soliloquy" (from Carousel) and "I Have Dreamed." We leave no doubt that Sinatra was the number one interpreter of Rodgers.

Who Authored the Bible? the Historical Perspective - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
December 13, 2017 - New York

When we're studying the Bible, one question that invariably arises is who wrote the Five Books and how were they compiled? Rabbinic commentators affirm that Moses was the author and explain the many repetitions, inconsistencies and contradictions with midrash (interpretive explanations). Modern scholars respond with a critical, historical reading of the text, identifying four primary sources or author schools—E, J, P and D. The composition, today's scholars posit, was gradual, with various segments being written in response to historical circumstances and changing theological world views. In this class, we will unravel and examine these strands with a view toward understanding how a critical reading—one that recognizes the multiplicity of voices inherent in the text's construction—enriches our insight into the Bible's profound and compelling messages, without undermining its authority or divinity.

Dialogue and Discourse - The Jewish Museum
December 14, 2017 - Upper East Side

This conversation with artists Brendan Fernandes and Aliza Nisenbaum, moderated by Joshua Cohen, Assistant Professor, African Art History, The City College of New York, revisits the work of Amedeo Modigliani through the 21st-century lens of formal and cultural appropriation. As these artists engage with layered notions of identity and incorporation of "other" subjects and elements in their own practices, they consider what is at stake in trying to inhabit a visual language or persona that is not one's own. What prompts this gesture of identification, and how do we go about reading degrees of cultural hijacking, appreciation, or both, at once? Joshua Cohen (B.A. Vassar College, Ph.D. Columbia University) is a historian of African art specializing in 20th-century cross-cultural exchange. His areas of interest include modernist appropriations of African sculpture; histories of West African national cultural policies and ballet performance; "primitivism" in art practice and discourse; postcolonial studies; museum studies; and global modernisms. He is the recipient of Fulbright, Lurcy, Kittredge, Dedalus, Mellon, Whiting, and other fellowships. His first book-length project tracks A... (read more)

Romanovs & the Jews - 92nd Street Y
December 14, 2017 - New York

Image: The Leonid Pasternak Children 1914 by Russian Jewish painter Leonid Pasternak – member of the Romanov's Imperial Academy of Art. The first boy on the left is Boris Pasternak, author of Doctor Zhivago. The antisemitism of the Romanovs is well known. What's not well known is the co-existing policy — discrimination of shtetl Jews and the increasing acceptance of cultured and educated Jews under the last Romanov, Tsar Nicholas II. Even before Nicholas II, Anton and Nikolai Rubinstein founded (respectively) the St. Petersburg Conservatory and the Moscow Conservatory — Nikolai teaching the great Peter Tchaikovsky. Valentin Serov, the Romanov Portraitist, was the grandson of a rabbi. Boris Pasternak's (author of Doctor Zhivago) father was a painter and professor at the Imperial Academy of Art and his mother, a concert pianist. Even more maligned than Nicholas II is Rasputin — a friend of the Jews — whose personal secretary was even Jewish. Includes 45-min lecture followed by lunch and a roundtable discussion.

In 2010 builders broke ground on the Xu-Huai Highway, a section of China’s 100,000-kilometer highway system in the mountainous western region of Hunan province. Zhang Zanbo spent more than three years at the construction site filming the conditions of the migrant laborers, contractors, officials, and local residents there. The rise of this highway has been marked by frequent public security incidents, acts of resistance, and mafia interventions. The construction has laid the landscape and many historical and cultural sites to waste. As this miracle of modern engineering takes shape, it offers an apt allegory for the dreams of a nation. https://www.guggenheim.org/event/turn-it-on-the-road

Turn It On Film Series: Disturbing the Peace - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
December 16, 2017 - New York

On the afternoon of May 12, 2008, an 8.0-magnitude earthquake hit Wenchuan county in northern Sichuan province, devastating a vast area of mountainous terrain and killing some 70,000 people, including thousands of children who were in school when it hit. Around the country, concerned citizens began to question why the government-built school buildings collapsed so easily, burying thousands of children alive, when other edifices had withstood the strike. In response to suspicion that corruption had resulted in deficient construction for the schools, the government concealed information and refused to release the number and names of the students who had died. Activist Tan Zuoren was arrested for investigating the deaths, charged with inciting subversion of state power. Ai Weiwei, who was also researching the situation and would eventually publish the full roster of names on his blog, was invited to testify at Tan’s trial. As soon as Ai and his group arrived in Chengdu, they were followed and filmed. This harassment culminated with the police breaking into Ai’s hotel room and beating him, causing cranial trauma. This film records Ai and his lawyers as they repeatedly travel to Chengdu... (read more)

Kanata - Park Avenue Armory
Through December 19, 2017 - NEW YORK

"Known as the alchemist of modern imagistic theatre, Robert Lepage is one of the most challenging and chimeric directors of our time." — The Guardian (UK) "The precision of the actors' technique [was] awe-inspiring…[it] helps open your senses to the complicated beauty of life's texture." — The New York Times on Le Théâtre du Soleil Versatile in every form of theater craft, Robert Lepage is equally talented as a director, playwright, and actor with a creative and original approach that has shaken the dogma of classical stage direction to its foundations. He melds his creative vision with the legendary theater ensemble Le Théâtre du Soleil, marking the first time that its founder Ariane Mnouchkine has invited an outside director to work with her troupe, for an epic new work commissioned by the Armory that explores the treatment of the indigenous people of Canada. This monumental theater piece takes audiences on a moving journey through unexpected and sometimes somber episodes of Canadian history from the beginning of the 19th century to modern times as told through an artistic lens. The large-scale trilogy examines the Huron tribe and their interactions with famed Shakes... (read more)

Room in India - Park Avenue Armory
Through December 20, 2017 - Upper East Side

What is the role of theater and art in a world dominated by terrorism and hostility? This is the central question at the heart of A Room in India ("Une chambre en Inde"), the latest epic by the matriarch of exploratory French theater Ariane Mnouchkine and her company Théâtre du Soleil. After astonishing Armory audiences with their two-part work exploring the end of the world LES ÉPHÉMÈRES in 2009, this visionary collective returns for the North American premiere of this landmark new work, following the adventures of a touring French theater company stranded in India without a director while the world around them falls into disarray. Performed by the 35 multinational actors in the company, this tour-de-force transcends Eastern and Western drama and features a special performance of Terukkuttu—a traditional form of theater practiced in South India. The production is an expansive affair, touching on pressing issues that societies around the globe are currently facing, from terrorism and religious extremism to climate change and gender equality. The end result is a manifesto of the power of theater to heal a community, as well as an exploration of how to talk about the chaos of a wo... (read more)

After Darkness: Southeast Asian Art in the Wake of History - Asia Society
Through January 21, 2018 - Upper East Side

Featured artists: FX Harsono, Htein Lin, Dinh Q. Lê, Nge Lay, Nguyen Thi Thanh Mai, The Propeller Group, Angki Purbandono, and Tintin Wulia.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

Through January 29, 2018 - New York

More than 400 objects have been selected for the presentation, and the loans are drawn from both public and private collections in the United States and Europe, including significant pieces from Austria. This show surveys the entirety of the firm's extensive output in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawings, fashion, furniture, glass, graphic design, jewelry, metalwork, textiles, and wallpaper. Special highlights of the show will include iconic examples of furniture by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, which will be complemented by rare and often unique works crafted in silver, gold, and semiprecious stones that convey the Wiener Werkstätte's luxurious aesthetic. The Neue Galerie has previously staged monographic exhibitions dedicated to the work of Josef Hoffmann (2006), Koloman Moser (2013), and Dagobert Peche (2002), all major designers who shaped the aesthetic of the Wiener Werkstätte. This is the first comprehensive American museum presentatio... (read more)

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino ("the divine one") by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today. This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. Among the extraordinary international loans are the complete series of masterpiece drawings he created for his friend Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the... (read more)
