Speaking of Science - Language and Being Human: Foundations of Human Communication in Infancy - New York Society for Ethical Culture
September 25, 2017 - Manhattan

Location: Ceremonial Hall, 4th Floor with Dr. Athena Vouloumanos, Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, New York University. Perceptual biases for listening to speech are a hallmark of early human development, evident just hours after birth. How do these early proclivities develop and how do they contribute to human communicative development? I will draw from behavioral and neural data to discuss how infants come to recognize properties of speech that are relevant to its use for intentional communication by humans. Before preverbal infants produce or understand many words, they recognize how speech is used by others to communicate about different types of entities in the world. This early communicative competence may provide infants with a channel for learning from others and lay a foundation for our social and cultural life as humans.

Sunday Meeting - Anne Klaeysen: Ethics of Contemplation - New York Society for Ethical Culture
October 01, 2017 - Manhattan

Location: Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor During my summer sabbatical, I visited a childhood friend who is a Sister of St. Joseph in the Catholic Diocese of Rochester, NY. She co-founded and operates Cobblestone Springs, an interdenominational retreat center in the Finger Lakes area, where I gave an afternoon workshop on "All-American Humanism." That evening I spent an hour in silence with her and the other residents and visitors. At breakfast the next morning, she asked whether Humanism had a contemplative practice. While my colleagues and I have addressed humanist spirituality (and I led workshop participants in a guided meditation), I had to concede that it hasn't yet taken the form on a practice or discipline, perhaps because we are so focused on ethical action.

Eloise at the Museum - New-York Historical Society
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This summer, the New-York Historical Society celebrates the feisty charm and audacious spirit of Eloise, who continues to be a picture book superstar more than sixty years after her debut. On view June 30 - October 9, 2017, Eloise at the Museum reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909-1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls. Organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, where it debuted earlier this year, New-York Historical's presentation fully immerses visitors into Eloise's world with evocations of the grand lobby of the Plaza Hotel, her bedroom?complete with a storytelling corner?and her bubbly "bawthroom," where she often made mischief.

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - Lincoln Center
Through October 14, 2017 - New York

ilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, inc... (read more)

55th New York Film Festival - The Film Society of Lincoln Center
Through October 15, 2017 - New York

The 55th New York Film Festival's Main Slate has been announced, featuring a selection of 25 films from around the globe. NYFF Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones said, "Every year, I'm asked about the themes in our Main Slate line-up, and every year I say the same thing: we choose the best films we see, and the common themes and preoccupations arise only after the fact. As I look at this slate of beautiful work, I could just make a series of simple observations: that these films come from all over the globe; that there is a nice balance of filmmakers known and unknown to many here in New York; that the overall balance between frankness and artistry holds me in awe; that there are two gala selections with the word 'wonder' in their titles; and that eight of the 25 films were directed by women." This year's Main Slate showcases films honored at Cannes including Ruben Östlund's Palme d'Or–winner The Square; Robin Campillo's BPM, awarded the Cannes Critics' Prize; and Agnès Varda & JR's Faces Places, which took home the Golden Eye. From Berlin, Aki Kaurismäki's Silver Bear–winner The Other Side of Hope and Agnieszka Holland's Alfred Bauer Prize–winner Spoor mark th... (read more)

25 years of service to the theater. Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) Announces 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign: $25 for 25 In celebration of their 25th Anniversary, Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU)announces a fundraising campaign: $25 for 25, in honor of 25 years of service to the theater community.

War and Pieced: the Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics - American Folk Art Museum
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York, in collaboration with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, University of Lincoln–Nebraska. Cocurated by Dr. Annette Gero, international quilt historian, author, and collector, and Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum. War and Pieced is the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the spectacularly complex geometric quilts made exclusively by men using richly dyed wools derived from British military and dress uniforms. Once termed "Soldiers'" or "Convalescent Quilts," the pieced textiles are most closely associated with the Crimean War as well as conflicts in India, South Africa, and other troubled regions of the British Empire during the nineteenth century. The exhibition further relates these military quilts to an earlier technique of pictorial inlaid or intarsia quilts, made with felted wools during the Prussian and Napoleonic wars beginning in the mid-eighteenth century. The visual virtuosity of the quilts, often incorporating many thousands of pieces no larger than one-inch square, assumes a deeper emotional r... (read more)

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times - New York Historical Society
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times is a new exhibition commemorating President John F. Kennedy's private life and public trajectory. One of the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled, it brings together images from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives that capture public and private moments from Kennedy's life. Some of the photographs on display are iconic; others have rarely been seen. Kennedy's administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America. No single politician was photographed more than Kennedy—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946 and his fairy-tale wedding to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 to his run for the White House in 1960 and the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. Documentary photographers such as Ed Clark, Lisl Steiner, Ralph Crane, Philippe Halsman, Ted Spiegel Jacques Lowe, Lawrence Schiller, Steve Schapiro, and Sam Vestal captured the optimism and challenges of the early 1960s in some of the finest and most vivid images of the period. New-York H... (read more)

Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art - New York Historical Society
Through January 21, 2018 - Upper West Side

Ominous threats filled the years around World War II—Nazism, the escalating plight of European Jews, Fascism, Japanese militarism, and racism. Arthur Szyk, the great 20th-century activist in art, confronted the turbulent, hate-filled period with forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes' destructive and inhumane policies. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art explores the activism of the Polish-born artist through more than 40 politically incisive works that underscore Szyk's role as a kind of "one man army" fighting odious policies and protagonists and advocating civil and human rights. Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts, with Irvin Ungar, project adviser. The book, Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art, is available from the NYHistory Store. Support for Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art is provided by Shelley and Steven Einhorn, the David Berg Foundation, the Edward and Sandra Meyer Foundation, and Nancy and Morris W. Offit. Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, and the New York Sta... (read more)

Inside You - American Musuem of Natural History
Through June 16, 2019 - New York

Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is home to about 100 trillion bacteria? That's more organisms than there are stars in the Milky Way! Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. This new perspective leads us to look at our bodies not just as individuals, but as entire ecosystems.Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health and introduces some of the scientists who are breaking new ground in microbiome research.Inspired by the Museum's popular exhibition The Secret World Inside You, this exhibition introduces visitors to microbes that live in, on, and around all of us.

Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depict... (read more)
