Art and Activism: “Takin’ it to the Streets”

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

SVA Theatre
333 West 23rd Street

The third annual Art & Activism event produced by School of Visual Arts, Division of Continuing Education, celebrates the power of collectives, performance as political activism, and artistic activations of public spaces.

A panel discussion will present a collaboration between Sing for Hope, an organization connecting artists, music and the city streets; and the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which provides social services, community, and arts programming to LGBTQ youth. With the support of artist Joan Di Lieto, and illustrator and SVA faculty member Grant Shaffer, youths from HMI’s after-school art program designed and painted a piano, which spent the summer in NYC’s Astor Place Plaza as a functional, accessible artwork for the streets and communities of our city.

Artist, curator, and director of New York City’s Percent for Art Program, Kendal Henry, will discuss the contemporary role of monuments in public spaces, and his work with local communities and She Built to develop 18 new monuments representing women.

Photographer Stacy Arezou Mehrfar’s emotionally rich portraits of demonstrators at marches across New York City after the 2016 election, will be displayed in backlit lightboxes throughout the theater lobby. An excerpt of her large-scale video installation, A Collective Performance will be screened at the start of the evening.
Media personality Valerie Smaldone moderates.

The Cathedral Of St. John The Divine Presents “Transformed Overnight: The Impact Of 9/11” with Screening Of 2001

Wednesday, September 11, 2019
7:00 am – 7:00 pm

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan

COST:  Free

In collaboration with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine will host Transformed Overnight: The Impact of 9/11 with a rare screening of 2001 by Wolfgang Staehle, a time-lapse compilation of video footage, extracted at four-second intervals during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, on Wednesday September 11, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).

Countless New Yorkers witnessed the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center as they were unfolding. Every conceivable form of image-capturing device recorded that awful spectacle, earning it distinction as the most visually recorded event of all time.

Wolfgang Staehle, a pioneering internet artist, inadvertently chronicled the approach of hijacked Flight 11 and its explosion through the North Tower at 8:46 a.m. on 9/11 by a pair of webcams in Brooklyn. Focused on lower Manhattan, the camera shutters were calibrated precisely to trip at four-second intervals, continuously snapping panoramic views programmed for live-streaming to the Postmasters Gallery in Manhattan.

Staehle’s installation, which also included two similar, remote camera setups in Berlin and the Swabian countryside in Germany, was intended to convey the predictable normalcy of life at the start of the 21st century. Manhattan’s downtown skyline represented the contributing influence of global capitalism. With the 9/11 attacks, these mundane rhythms were ruptured as Staehle’s cameras chronicled the transformation of a routine workday into a city under siege.

Presentation of this program is made possible through the generous support of 9/11 Memorial Museum Presenting Sustainer Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund.

This Event is Free and Open to the Public

City Hall Park, NYC

Join the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, Inc. as they commemorate martyred spy Nathan Hale at the foot of the Nathan Hale statue which stands at City Hall Park. The ceremony features the SRNY Color Guard, wreath laying, and more.

Nathan Hale was commissioned by George Washington to infiltrate the British ranks to gather intelligence. He was discovered on September 22, 1776 and hanged for treason, without trial, the next morning.

The Nathan Hale Commemoration Ceremony takes place in City Hall Park near the statue of Nathan Hale that was commissioned by the Sons of the Revolution in 1883 and stands facing the south main entrance to City Hall. Click HERE to see the exact location on Google Maps.  To enter the park, you may enter the secure area from either the west or east gate of Steve Flanders Square, which is on the south side of the City Hall building.  Everyone who enters will have to walk through a metal detector and have any bags scanned by an x-ray machine. Look for chairs set up where the commemoration is to take place.

New Museum Presents IdeasCity Bronx – 2019
Sep 21 all-day

New Museum Presents

IdeasCity Bronx

Saturday, September 21

A free public festival at Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx

New York, NY…The New Museum is pleased to announce IdeasCity Bronx, a free public festival taking place the afternoon of Saturday, September 21, 2019, at Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx.

IdeasCity Bronx will feature conversations, artist talks, performances, and activations by an array of cultural agents engaging the physical, social, and economic forces that define the Bronx and other cities. Highlights will include keynote conversations by Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman and Jon Gray of Ghetto Gastro, and a series of participatory workshops organized by Xaviera Simmons, Torkwase Dyson, Oscar Oliver-Didier, Coco June, Marquita Flowers, and Monxo López and Libertad Guerra of South Bronx Unite. Pop-up activations by Bronx-based art and activist groups and food vendors will operate throughout the afternoon, organized with DreamYard, a nationally recognized community organization that works with Bronx youth, families, and schools to build pathways to equity through the arts.

Themed New Ecologies 3755, this iteration of IdeasCity focuses on the effects of climate change faced by communities in the Bronx, and the inextricable link between the conditions of our planet and the state of culture and society. IdeasCity has invited locally and internationally recognized practitioners to design interactive workshops focused on key areas of inquiry pertaining to the theme of New Ecologies. Workshops are centered on topics ranging from Waterfront De-Industrialization, Divesting from Whiteness, Borders and Migration, Housing Production and Preservation, Public Health and Pleasure, and Food Justice, and highlights include a somatic movement workshop on strategizing Resources for Resistance, storytelling performances combating Food Apartheid through agricultural autonomy, and a livestream conversation on the Architecture of Diaspora between South Bronx activists and allied groups in Santurce, Puerto Rico.

“The number 3755 refers to the 3,755 days between IdeasCity Bronx and the start of 2030, noted internationally as the deadline for irreversible climate crisis. The number also evokes a distant future, over a millennium away, one that we might imagine shaped by the Bronx and by communities that were erased or marginalized in the last millennium,” stated V. Mitch McEwen, Curator of IdeasCity. “Inspired by the urgency around climate change, artists and organizations in the Bronx are working to address structural inequality, real estate development models, and even national politics, topics that will take center stage at IdeasCity Bronx.”

Prior to the festival, IdeasCity will release a podcast produced in collaboration with Gesso, members of NEW INC, the New Museum’s cultural incubator, who have developed a free location-based mobile app for innovative audio content. The podcast is designed to accompany visitors en route to the festival, expanding on the program’s themes with additional information, conversations, and interviews with IdeasCity Bronx speakers and community leaders.

On Friday, September 20, 2019, IdeasCity and the Bronx Museum of the Arts will cohost a workshop for local and emerging practitioners that will consider the inequalities produced and reproduced by urban spatial relationships, and the shifting approaches devised by artists, designers, planners, and architects engaging with public space in the Bronx’s contemporary landscape.

IdeasCity Bronx will be held at Concrete Plant Park, located on the Bronx River between Westchester Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard. Home to a functioning concrete plant from the late 1940s to 1987, Concrete Plant Park’s revitalization began in 2000 under the stewardship of the Parks Department and the Bronx River Alliance. In addition to salt marshes, greenways, a promenade, and boat-launch, Concrete Plant Park is also home to the Bronx Foodway, a pilot project examining how a sustainable food landscape can be integrated into a public park.

IdeasCity Bronx follows IdeasCity New Orleans, which took place in April 2019 and was centered on the theme of “Everyday Festival,” and IdeasCity Toronto, which took place in September 2018 and was centered on the theme of “City of Cities.”
