The Adolf Eichmann And David Irving Trials: A Study In Contrasts & Similarities Featuring Deborah Lipstadt - Museum of Jewish Heritage
December 10, 2017 - New York

In 1961, Deborah Lipstadt (Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies, Emory University)—then only 13 years old—sat transfixed in front of the television with her family as Adolf Eichmann was accused of being the chief operational officer of the Final Solution. More than 30 years later, Lipstadt found herself at the center of another highly publicized Holocaust trial, this time as a Holocaust historian accused of libel. In the Eichmann trial, survivors' courtroom testimony—which was itself not without controversy played a central role in convicting Eichmann. In the David Irving trial, no survivors were allowed to testify. Lipstadt will discuss these two trials, of different centuries, with vastly different protagonists, but with one common thread: the raw anti-Semitism that provided fertile ground for Eichmann's commission of the crimes, and Irving's later denial of those crimes. $25 general, $15 Museum members, $7 students

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.

National Theatre Live: Young Marx - NYU Skirball Center
December 12, 2017 - New York

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors. 1850, and Europe's most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there's still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx. SCREENINGS OF NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE EVENTS ARE ON A TIME-DELAY AND MAY NOT BE SCREENED ON THE SAME DAY OR TIME AS THE LIVE PERFORMANCE.

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.

Le Conversazioni: Lincoln's Warning for America and Other Thoughts - New York Historical Society
December 12, 2017 - New York

Young Abraham Lincoln once posed a foreboding question to an assembly of his peers: What is the greatest threat to the Republic? His position was clear—great danger lay in the waning faith in public institutions and trend towards mob mentality among the American people. In a special conversation, award-winning writer Philip Gourevitch explores Lincoln's warning, offers insight on contemporary America, and discusses his extraordinary writing career that has covered various topics across the globe, including recent presidential elections, Robert Mugabe's dictatorship in Zimbabwe, and Jean-Marie Le Pen's National Front in France. Philip Gourevitch is a staff writer for The New Yorker. Antonio Monda (moderator) is Artistic Director of Le Conversazioni literary festival and Artistic Director of the Rome Film Festival.

Ear Yoga: Think With Your Ears - Rubin Museum
December 13, 2017 - New York

Often dampened due to pressures of the modern urban soundscape, our capacity to truly listen and absorb the everyday can be minimized or ignored. In Ear Yoga, re-tune your ears to the primal sense of acute hearing. Sound Artist Bruce Odland has spent his career highlighting the complex and vibrant sonic landscapes that make up our world. In this intimate workshop, Odland will facilitate a series of exercises designed to stimulate the "hunter-gatherer" precision of hearing. Participants will be encouraged to stretch underused auditory muscles, expand their reach and potential, and "think with their ears." A pioneer in sound installations, Bruce Odland is an artist who thinks with his ears. His first public sound installation, SUN SONG, broadcasted a four-channel cloud of reverberant sound over an outdoor festival in Denver from the Clock Tower of East High in 1977. Since then he has discovered resonance and beauty in both the fractal music of nature and the transformation of vast industrial soundscapes of cities into harmonic music.

Lunchtime Lecture Series 'An Alternate Route to Modernism in Italian and Spanish Art, 1850-1920' With Marcus Burke - The Art Students League
December 13, 2017 - New York

Standard histories of modern art from 1850 to 1920 rightly emphasize the role of Paris as the epicenter of artistic developments, but as Robert Rosenblum and others have demonstrated, there were other routes to the art of the twentieth century. Rosenblum described a northern route to Modernism. This lecture looks at developments in Italy and eastern Spain, from the work of the Italian Macchiaioli group in the 1850s through developments particularly in Valencia. The lecture will also consider the influence of this alternate route to modern art on Joaquín Sorolla. Marcus Burke is Senior Curator at the Hispanic Society of Americ.

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.

Le Conversazioni: Portraits of America with Elizabeth Strout - New York Historical Society
December 14, 2017 - New York

Throughout her prolific career, #1 New York Times-bestselling author Elizabeth Strout—described by the Boston Globe as one of "our most grace-filled, and graceful, writers"—has showcased a diverse cast of characters and settings that emulate the rich tapestry of America. Providing a window into the personal struggles, tensions, and triumphs that shape how families and communities rally and evolve, her body of work underscores the anxieties that impact the greater national mood. In an intimate conversation, Strout illuminates the themes prevalent in her writing—including shared experience and interconnectivity, generational conflict, small-town versus urban attitudes, and perseverance through adversity—and how they reflect America's contemporary sociopolitical landscape. Elizabeth Strout is the author of numerous critically acclaimed books, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Olive Kitteridge, which was adapted into an HBO miniseries. Her most recent book is Anything is Possible. Antonio Monda (moderator) is Artistic Director of Le Conversazioni literary festival and Artistic Director of the Rome Film Festival.

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.

Champagne School: Prestige Cuvées - Flute Bar -Midtown
December 16, 2017 - New York

A 'Prestige Cuvée' is a champagne at the very top of a producer's range. It is the highest quality, the most refined - and the most expensive - champagne that the house offers. Think Krug, Cristal, Dom Perignon and Rare. What makes these champagnes so special? Since there are no official guidelines for designating a Prestige Cuvée as there are for other categories of French champagne, this question can only be answered by understanding a champagne house's wine making philosophy and tasting the end result of the wine maker's best effort. What food do you pair with the world's best Champagnes? Caviar of course! This incredible tasting will include pairings from Petrossian Paris. This is a seated tasting presented to a small group by Flûte's experts. You will be tasting some of the world's best champagnes and tickets are limited! Each month, Champagne School offers the opportunity to learn about champagnes or sparkling wines in a tasting guided by Flûte's experts. See the entire 2017 class schedule.

Rezz - PlayStation Theater
December 16, 2017 - New York

Mass Manipulation World Tour Mad Zach Though young at 22 years of age, REZZ is anything but an amateur as a producer of genre bending works, striking a sharp balance between bass heavy and minimal tech composition. With less than a handful of EPs under her belt, she just returned from her first solo headlining tour which saw sold out shows across the board. Having gotten her start in music as a local DJ in her hometown of Niagara Falls, she was still a teen when she decided that production was the path she would take. After studying sound design extensively at home and psychology as an aid to her creative process, her experimentation, dedication and hard work have paid off in paving a way for a long career ahead as a producer of downtempo soundscapes. With a strong vision and no two ways about it, REZZ's headstrong decisiveness is arguably the key to her success so far. She began to build a following on SoundCloud with a series of free releases which in a short time inevitably caught the ears of EDM golden boys Skrillex and Deadmau5, who helped bring her out to the masses with near back-to-back releases of a three-track Insurrection EP on OWSLA's The Nest imprint in 2015, fol...
