Computational Justice - Pioneer Works
April 21, 2019 - Brooklyn

Women in STEM regularly experience harmful immediate and long-term consequences of gender bias. How can we find optimal ways to confront this gender bias, e.g. with the help of allies? In this workshop led by computational neuroscientist Ida Momennejad, we will answer this question using agent based simulation, a method for implementing and testing long-term consequences of simple interaction rules, and Python to manipulate and test sexist interactions and their costs in an environment with a 20/80 gender ratio. We will then compare the long-term consequences of different strategies of bias confrontation. Ultimately, we will discuss how these simulations can be applied to institutional policies and future projects that make injustice visible and seek to offer balance.

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture - The Frick Collection
Through April 21, 2019 - New York

Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture is the first major exhibition in the United States to focus on the portraiture of Giovanni Battista Moroni (1520/24–1579/80). A painter of portraits and religious subjects, Moroni is celebrated as an essential figure in the northern Italian tradition of naturalistic painting that includes Leonardo da Vinci, the Carracci, and Caravaggio. This exhibition, shown exclusively at The Frick Collection, brings to light the innovation of the artist, whose role in a larger history of European portraiture has yet to be fully explored. His famous Tailor (National Gallery, London), for example, anticipates by decades the "narrative" portraits of Rembrandt, and his Pace Rivola Spini (Accademia Carrara, Bergamo), arguably the first independent full-length portrait of a standing woman produced in Italy, prefigures the many women that Van Dyck would paint in this format in the following century.

Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through April 21, 2019 - New York

The exhibition in the Portico Gallery presents a promised gift to the Frick Collection: seventy-five objects from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel — the finest collection of French faience in private hands — to tell the fascinating and complex history of this particular art form. A feat of great technical achievement, French faience was introduced to Lyon in the second half of the sixteenth century by skilled Italian immigrants — the French word "faience" derives from the northern Italian city of Faenza. Over the next two centuries, production spread throughout the provinces of metropolitan France. The fine decoration of French faience draws inspiration from multiple sources, including Italian maiolica, Asian porcelain, and contemporary engravings. The forms of its platters, bowls, plates, and ewers derive mostly from European ceramics and silver. These influences come together in works of great originality.

Rachel Cline: The Question Authority W/ Lisa Miller - Books are Magic
April 22, 2019 - Cobble Hill

A middle-aged woman enters into a negotiation with her childhood best friend and confronts the damage done by their eighth grade teacher, who molested them both. Nora Buchbinder—formerly rich and now broke—would be the last woman in Brooklyn to claim #MeToo, but when a work assignment reunites her with her childhood best friend, Beth, she finds herself in a hall of mirrors. Was their eighth grade teacher Beth's lover or her rapist? Where were the grown-ups? What should justice look like, after so much time has passed? And what can Nora do, now? Nora's memories, and Beth's, and those of their classmates, their former teacher, and members of his family, bring to light some of the ways we absorb and manage unbearable behavior. From denial to reinvention, self-pity to self-righteousness, endless questioning to intransigent certainty, readers will recognize the ripples sent into the lives of others by one broken man. Rachel Cline, author of the novels What to Keep and My Liar, has written for the New York Times, New York, More, SELF, and Tin House magazines, and is a produced screen and television writer. For five years, she was a screenwriting instructor at the University of Souther... (read more)

Jennifer Epstein: Wunderland W/ Chris Bohjalian - Books are Magic
April 23, 2019 - Cobble Hill

Inspired by a true story, Jennifer Cody Epstein's Wunderland is an ambitious, multigenerational saga that crosses decades, borders, and warzones. Drawn together by shared idealism and mutual bookishness, Ilse Fischer and Renate Bauer form a passionate friendship that will be ripped apart by Germany's race laws--and a shocking betrayal. Three decades later, struggling East Village artist Ava Fisher receives her estranged mother Ilse's ashes in the mail—along with a trove of unsent letters to a woman named Renate Bauer. It's a discovery that will launch Ava onto the gritty streets of 1980's New York City—and on a collision course with a dark revelation about both her mother's hidden past that will shake her to her very core. Hailed as "a devastating tale bound for bestseller lists," "a vividly written and stark chronicle of Nazism and its legacies" and "an absorbing exploration of friendship, betrayal, and coming to terms with the past" in starred reviews by Publishers Weekly, Kirkus and Booklist, Wunderland draws readers into the lives of complex, flawed characters whose worlds intersect in ways both life-affirming and tragic, right up until the novel's stunning conclusion.

D. Watkins and Yahdon Israel on the 2nd Floor - Strand Book Store
April 23, 2019 - New York

Join us on the second floor as writer Salon columnist D. Watkins sits down with writer and host Yahdon Israel to share his new book! While author D. Watkins is pleased about the number of books exploring issues of race that are being published, there's one crucial aspect of contemporary black life that doesn't get enough attention: the hood. The Baltimore native knows firsthand what it means to live in poverty, where violence and drugs are inescapable. As he sees it, the perspective of people who live in poor black communities is largely absent from the work of many of the top intellectuals who speak and write about race. Now, D. Watkins is here to tell his truth. Built upon Watkins's own experiences, We Speak for Ourselves eases us into the bigger conversation about race and the various issues affecting poor black neighborhoods in America. Unapologetic and eye-opening, We Speak for Ourselves identifies and addresses a range of issues affecting these low-income communities—such as the trouble with misrepresentation and why we need more than one black voice—and sheds light on the harsh realities of daily life. Additionally, Watkins examines various crucial activist movements, incl... (read more)

Leanne Shapton Presents Guestbook: Ghost Stories - Books are Magic
April 24, 2019 - Cobble Hill

What haunts us? What can't we let go of? A tennis prodigy collapses after his wins, crediting them to an invisible, not entirely benevolent presence.

The spirit of a prisoner has attached himself to you, a friend tells her. He sensed the empathy you had for those men. In more than two dozen stories and vignettes accompanied by an evocative curiosity cabinet of artifacts and images—found photographs, original paintings, Instagram-style portraits—Guestbook beckons us through the glimmering, unsettling evidence that marks our paths through life. Leanne Shapton is an artist and author of several books, including Swimming Studies (winner of the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography), Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, and a coauthor of the New York Times-bestselling Women in Clothes.

A stunning portrait of a budding author?before he became C.P.

Indian food is everyday food!

Finding Puccini's Music Box - 92Y
April 25, 2019 - New York

One is associated with Butterfly herself and the second with her patrimony. The assumption has been that Puccini, attempting to achieve exotic authenticity, based these themes on Japanese melodies. But Professor W. Anthony Sheppard has discovered a different theory: Puccini's source for these themes was a Swiss-made music box playing Chinese tunes. Evidence indicates that Puccini may have handled this very artifact and specific moments in the opera indicate he was aware of the Chinese titles. The sound of music boxes is evident throughout Butterfly and Turandot and this discovery reveals unnoticed connections between these two beloved operas.

Brenda Shaughnessy: The Octopus Museum W/ Evan James - Books are Magic
April 26, 2019 - Cobble Hill

This collection of bold and scathingly beautiful feminist poems imagines what comes after our current age of environmental destruction, racism, sexism, and divisive politics. Informed by Brenda Shaughnessy's craft as a poet and her worst fears as a mother, the poems in The Octopus Museum blaze forth from her pen: in these pages, we see that what was once a generalized fear for our children (car accidents, falling from a tree) is now hyper-reasonable, specific, and multiple: school shootings, nuclear attack, loss of health care, a polluted planet. As Shaughnessy conjures our potential future, she movingly (and often with humor) envisions an age where cephalopods might rule over humankind, a fate she suggests we may just deserve after destroying their oceans. These heartbreaking, terrified poems are the battle cry of a woman who is fighting for the survival of the world she loves, and a stirring exhibition of who we are as a civilization. Brenda Shaughnessy was born in Okinawa, Japan, and grew up in Southern California. She is the author of four books of poetry, including So Much Synth, Human Dark with Sugar--winner of the James Laughlin Award and finalist for the National Book Cri... (read more)

In Be/Hold: A Friendship Book visual artist, poet, and musician Shira Erlichman opens with the line, "Sweetheart, sometimes when I'm feeling blue I put my ear to the wind & listen for you," building a one-of-a-kind story of friendship from her love of compound words (i.e. toothbrush, windbreaker, behold) in a book that uplifts, encourages, and honors the people we care about most.

Anjna Swaminathan's Woven: Entangled Memorabilia - Anjna Swaminathan's Woven: Entangled Memorabilia
April 28, 2019 - Boerum Hill

Even as a person casts off worn-out clothes and puts on others that are new, so the embodied Self casts off worn-out bodies and enters into others that are new. —The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 22 For her Commission at Roulette, composer, violinist, vocalist and theatre artist Anjna Swaminathan presents WOVEN: Entangled Memorabilia—a multidisciplinary work that brings together original music, poetry, and improvisation to meditate on personal, cultural, and artistic rituals of nostalgia, loss, and mourning. The project was initially inspired by the works of Indian Malayali painter and artist Raja Ravi Varma (1848–1906) and Tamil poet Subramania Bharati (1882–1921), both late 19th to early 20th century artists who were integral to shaping images of women as vessels for Indian national identity during the movement against the British Raj. Swaminathan's poetry also seeks to juxtapose Hindu Vedantic ideas of loss as a necessary part of progress with contemporary Indian nationalism's reluctance to accept change. While religious rituals of mourning may impose on people an active forgetting, so many of the daily rituals of home involve a preoccupation with holding on. In WOVEN: E... (read more)

"Two Doors Down" Painting Compilation Exhibiting at Chase Contemporary Gallery - Chase Contemporary Gallery
Through April 28, 2019 - New York

Featured “Two Doors Down” Painting Compilation Exhibiting At Chase Contemporary Gallery April 4th – 28th In New York City Stanley Casselman & Hallie Hart will be presenting their “Two Doors Down” exhibition at Chase Contemporary Gallery (521 W 23rd Street / New York, NY) opening April 4th and ending on April 28th. Stanley Casselman’s “Liquid” paintings specifically are acrylic on polyester screen and then sprayed with silver nitrate. The process of applying the silver nitrate is called spray chrome. Silver nitrate is what's on the back of a mirror. The influence for using the process came from two other artists, Jason Martin and Anselm Reyle who've been incorporating it into their practices for about half a dozen years. “My practice is process based. I embrace accident, random occurrence and I'm far more interested in what 'we' as humanity don't know vs. what we already do. I like to think of it as the leading edge of knowledge, the known vs. the unknown. And specifically to my practice I'm interested in what's visually new, what hasn't been done before and more importantly where the experience of color, line and form can take the viewer,” said Stanley Casselman “In my ...

Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through April 28, 2019 - New York

The exhibition in the Portico Gallery presents a promised gift to the Frick Collection: seventy-five objects from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel — the finest collection of French faience in private hands — to tell the fascinating and complex history of this particular art form. A feat of great technical achievement, French faience was introduced to Lyon in the second half of the sixteenth century by skilled Italian immigrants — the French word "faience" derives from the northern Italian city of Faenza. Over the next two centuries, production spread throughout the provinces of metropolitan France. The fine decoration of French faience draws inspiration from multiple sources, including Italian maiolica, Asian porcelain, and contemporary engravings. The forms of its platters, bowls, plates, and ewers derive mostly from European ceramics and silver. These influences come together in works of great originality.

One: Do Ho Suh - Brooklyn Museum
Through May 05, 2019 - Brooklyn

Visitors will be able to walk within the installation Saturdays and Sundays during our regular public hours. At a time of mass global migration, the loss of leaving one's native country and searching for a permanent home have become universal issues. One: Do Ho Suh features a single, large-scale work by Korean-born artist Do Ho Suh, whose work engages with migration and cultural displacement. The Perfect Home II is a full-scale re-creation of the artist's former apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City and his home for 19 years. Visitors are invited to walk through the hand-sewn, translucent fabric replica, which includes details such as light fixtures, radiators, and even an intercom.

Agora and Gallery - Agora Gallery
Through May 08, 2019 - NYC

Agora Gallery presents A Rich Profusion of Spring, an exhibition of paintings and sculptures, on view April 18 through May 8, 2019, with an opening reception Thursday, April 18, from 6-8 PM. Spring invigorates. April is conventionally associated birth and new life; and yet, at T.S. Eliot once remarked, “April is the cruelest month.” The 13 artists included in this exhibition all explore the fecundity of their medium (be it a watercolor work, a sculpture, or a painting in oils); but they everywhere encounter limits. These limits call into question the value their chosen craft. In the face of restlessness and doubt, however, these 13 artists dauntlessly capture the energy artists use to realize an artwork into life. The works on view show the human figure as something effaced, concealed, even denatured. In the teeth of this, the elegance of human ingenuity becomes all the more apparent. Glimpses become certitudes; conviction becomes truth. Featuring domestic interiors, craggy landscapes, and urban vistas, the attitude each artist takes in relation to his or her theme is one of disinterested contemplation. Oftentimes, there is no observer suggested by the work—apart from the vie... (read more)

Every morning I find myself drawn to my window on the 25th floor by a magical light show overlooking three bridges – Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg. And on out to the balcony with my camera several times, trying to capture “the moment” of the rapidly changing moments of colors and clouds. How could the same view painted over and over hold my interest? How could I paint the masterpiece in the sky with mere oils?? The iconic bridges of New York, sometime mere silhouettes, appear like a backdrop stage set trying to command attention with the impossibly wondrous skies. A tiny police boat keeps watch. Powerful freighters pass, toys against the heavens. Elysium. Empyrean. Eden. Utopia. Fervor. Bliss. Inferno. And a rather belated nod to the New Kid on the Block, 1 Manhattan Square, as it claims its place amongst the giants. ... (read more)

"Americana" - Tambaran 2 Gallery
Through May 11, 2019 - New York

Tambaran 2 Gallery and The TAX Collection are pleased to present 'Americana' - a solo exhibition by New York artist Kevin Champeny. Opening April 11th, Champeny's latest exhibition explores current issues in America including: politics, mental health, gun violence, beauty, social media and drugs. The work will be on display at The Tambaran2 Gallery on 82nd street, just steps from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Champeny reinvents the traditional mosaic with his sculpted, cast and hand placed pieces creating an interactive platform. He encourages the work to be viewed from both up close and far away, allowing the observer to derive meaning from its juxtaposition. Champeny states “Mosaics enable me to elicit the tension and stories between hand sculpted and cast pixels and the overall image they compose. I want my art to open a conversation for the viewer. I hope people discovering and viewing my pieces will connect their own experiences to the choices I made when creating the work”.

The Harlem School of the Arts with curator and Director of Art & Design, Adrienne Elise Tarver, proudly presents, “INTERWOVEN,” an exhibition featuring the work of artists Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby. This unique exhibition presents married couple, Sedrick and Letitia Huckaby’s work side-by-side highlighting their individual and mutual interests in the ties that bind generations in the black community. Textiles play a large role in these recent bodies of work, as they have in the histories of the black community in America. From the cotton picked in southern plantations to the intricate patchwork quilts made from scraps of old clothes, there’s resilience and resourcefulness that is woven into the threads of black history in the United States. Letitia presents work from her series “40 Acres...Gumbo Ya Ya,” referencing the unfulfilled promise of land to formerly enslaved individuals in post-civil-war America, and the Cajun phrase meaning everybody is talking at once. She stretches images of rural Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas printed on fabric over embroidery hoops, referencing domestic work and handmaid heirlooms which cultivate sentimental value over generations instead ...

Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless - Red Bull Arts
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

Red Bull Arts New York is proud to present Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless, the first posthumous retrospective of the life and work of the influential, multi-disciplinary artist. Opening to the public on March 6, 2019, and remaining on view until July 28, the ambitious exhibition returns the spotlight to one of contemporary art's most prescient figures, detailing her historic importance and contemporary relevance. Gretchen Bender (1951-2004) was a pioneering artist who worked across video, sculpture, computer graphics, photography, print and installation to interrogate the accelerated age of mass media. Moving to New York in 1978, Bender quickly fell in with the Post-Pictures Generation scene, centered around the artist-run gallery Nature Morte, as well as a milieu of artist and performers connected to The Kitchen. She befriended and collaborated with such figures as artists Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman, the choreographers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, and musicians Stuart Argabright and Vernon Reid. Building upon techniques developed in her years running a feminist-Marxist screen-printing collective in Washington, D.C., Bender's early two-dimensional work, made in New York, ... (read more)

Hogarth: Cruelty and Humor - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 22, 2019 - Manhattan

The satirical scenes of the celebrated English artist William Hogarth (1697–1764) are iconic representations of eighteenth-century urban life at a time of great socio-economic disparity. An academic outsider and an activist, Hogarth was driven to innovate, creating new genres and modes of expression in his painting, printmaking, and drawing in his effort to elevate the status of British art. This exhibition will investigate the ways the artist used humor, satire, and political commentary to engage a broad audience and agitate for legislation and political goals. The exhibition features the Morgan's exceptional cache of six sheets preparatory for two of Hogarth's most revered print series, both issued in February 1751: Beer Street and Gin Lane and The Four Stages of Cruelty. The story of Hogarth's images reveal an artist who addressed the ills and injustices of life in a modern metropolis, exploring the connections between violence, crime, alcohol abuse, and cruelty to animals in ways that would amuse, occasionally shock, and edify his audience.
