The Inaugural Year: Christine Desan Lecture—As Mainstream as the Mail: Re-Imagining Money, From Theory to (Postal) Practice [Economics Lecture Series]

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

1:30pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

The Bitcoin boom attests to the deep public capacity to re-imagine money. Money runs through our lives in countless ways, a currency of value that denominates the work we perform and the property we own, the savings we put aside for those we love and the contributions we make towards the public sphere. If we can reconceive money, we can revise an elemental medium that relates people to each other, to those in authority, and to those across borders. The trick is not, however, inventing a crypto-currency, isolated from governance and immune from human interpretation. It is to understand and remake money as it exists at the core of political and economic life.

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

Peggy Ahwesh is one of the most important media artists working today.

Her films and videos present a diverse range of radical innovations across genres and modes of production, from film-essay to documentary, diary and home-movie, appropriation and animation. Ahwesh’s recent videos and media-installations explore surveillance aesthetics and notions of truth through “found animation,” offering poignant, trenchant examinations of the politics of montage in the age of electronic media.

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

Sensitive to charges that the rule of men takes precedence over the rule of law in China, President Xi Jinping has made legal reform, particularly a tough anti-corruption drive, a centerpiece of his plan to cement great power status for China abroad and shore up the Communist Party’s legitimacy at home. Wide-ranging investigations of graft have netted even some high-profile officials, but have generated concerns that legal reform is being used as a weapon against Xi’s political opponents and as a tool to enforce an increasingly narrow and strident orthodoxy. Bringing insights from his decades of legal experience in, and scholarship on, China, Professor Jerome Cohen will discuss law and legal reform Xi Jinping’s China.

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Janine Antoni ’86 is a visual artist who was born in Freeport, Bahamas in 1964. She received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is known for her unusual processes. Her body is both her tool for making and the source from which her meaning arises. Antoni’s early work transformed materials like chocolate and soap, and used everyday activities like bathing, eating, and sleeping as sculptural processes. She carefully articulates her relationship to the world, giving rise to emotional states that are felt in and through the senses. In each piece, no matter the medium or image, a conveyed physicality speaks directly to the viewer’s body.

Open to the public

/ Saturday

8:30am-5:00pm Add to calendar

Events in the past decade seem to indicate that democracy in many parts of the world is in peril. In the United States, voter ID laws and extra legal tactics work to suppress voter turnout and political actors make decisions based on what might effect their re-election rather than what is best for their country. American distrust of government, and a growing sense of white resentment have widened divisions among an already fractured electorate, while racism and xenophobia seem to be growing. Moreover, Russian hackers appear to have weaponized racism in a way that affected the outcome of the US elections.

Standing Still—Victor LaValle on the Craft of Speculative Fiction

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

6:00pm-7:00pm Add to calendar

Writers are, generally, cerebral and somewhat introverted people. We spend so much of our lives inside our own heads it can be easy to forget we have bodies that move through the world, take up space, do things. But where do those bodies go when we write fiction? Our characters certainly talk about a lot of things and think about even more things, but beyond that what they hell do they ever actually do in our stories and novels? This craft class is about paying attention to the "present action" in a story. How to make greater use of "present action" when telling a story. This isn't about turning your work into an action movie. This is simply about making you more aware of what you aren't setting down on the page.

We are living through the most anti-immigrant era in modern US history, with the battle over DACA and the DREAM Act still being waged, while a record number of raids and deportations tear families apart. To change the politics of the moment and the policies attached to them, we must change the conversation on immigration and build bridges of empathy, understanding, and shared values. Join us for a conversation with Jose Antonio Vargas, founder and CEO of Define American, to discuss the current state of immigration politics and how we can use stories to fight anti-immigrant hate and shift the conversation on immigration, identity, and citizenship in a changing America.

Sarah Rose Nordgren Literary Craft Talk—Hybridity and Magical Thinking

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

In the introduction to his book, Paris Spleen,—which is credited as being the first collection of modern prose poems—Charles Baudelaire writes to the editor Arsène Houssaye, “I send you here a little work of which no one could say that it has neither head nor tail, because, on the contrary, everything in it is both head and tail, alternately and reciprocally.” In this talk, Sarah Rose Nordgen will explore some of the ways in which writers have used hybridity—the blending and mixing of genres and modes—to grapple with and reconcile ideas and facts that seem to be at odds, thus creating an artistic space to contain basic human problems such as morality, identity, and chance. We will look at various examples from William Shakespeare to Claudia Rankine and discuss the role of magical thinking as artistic mode.

The Inaugural Year: Nell Minow ’74 Lecture—Why Only Corporate Governance Can Save the World (Economics Lecture Series)

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

1:30pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

The Trump administration’s regulatory rollback has taken Americans through the Looking Glass and into the Upside Down. The question of what used to be called “corporate social responsibility” in the peace-and-love 60’s has been sharpened by the upheavals of the Enron era, the financial meltdown, and Occupy Wall Street. That means the shareholder movement that began with individuals holding dozens of shares of stock submitting granola-crunching shareholder proposals about Vietnam and South Africa have been replaced by pension funds and other institutional investors with millions of shares of stock and a tough, number-crunching demands about sustainable operations, climate change, political contributions, and cyber-security. Nell Minow ’74 will talk about her own fights with overpaid, under-performing CEOs, why divesting “bad” stocks never works, and how investors can sometimes be more effective in making society cleaner, smarter, and fairer than government can.

Brain Awareness Week: Jessica Cloud ’18 Lecture—Using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) at Sarah Lawrence College: An Introduction to Student-Accessible fMRI Techniques and Methodologies

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:30pm-1:30pm Add to calendar

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is an essential methodology in the field of psychology and neurobiology, allowing researchers to visualize distinct neural correlates of behaviors and the ways in which neuronal networks interact during tasks. For undergraduates, however, this technology is often inaccessible, both in terms of understanding the techniques behind fMRI imaging and in utilizing fMRI images for research. Efforts of research groups across the country have helped to rectify this lack of access through online databases of fMRI images; access to these images allows for countless research opportunities in the areas of anxiety, epilepsy, vision loss, dementia/Alzheimer’s, adolescent/adult depression and anxiety, and others. Jessica Cloud ’18 will review ways in which undergraduates and other researchers without access to fMRI machinery can perform research using fMRI images and discuss ongoing cognition research at Sarah Lawrence College that utilizes these techniques.

Brain Awareness Week: What we think, we become: A neuroscientist’s understanding: a lecture by Dr. Andre Fenton

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Monday

12:00pm-1:30pm Add to calendar

Memories are the imprints that experience leaves in the brain in defining knowledge, mental competence, and, in part, our individuality. In this lecture, Dr. Fenton will explain the biological basis of how experience alters brain function-breakthroughs that will eventually have a remarkable impact on our lives. 

Dr. Andre Fenton is a professor of Neural Science at New York University. He studies how brains store experiences as memories, and how the expression of knowledge activates information that is relevant without activating what is irrelevant. Dr. Fenton and colleagues identified PKMzeta as the first molecule that maintains the persistence of memories in the brain, a discovery recognized by Science Magazine as one of the 10 most important breakthroughs in all of science and technology published in 2006. André founded Bio-Signal Group Corp., which developed and commercialized an FDA-approved portable, wireless, and easy to use platform for obtaining medical quality EEGs for emergency medicine, sports, space exploration, and under served clinics in Africa.

The Inaugural Year: Will Gibbons Lecture—Gamifying Classical Music and Classifying Game Music

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:15pm-6:30pm Add to calendar

Classical music is everywhere in video games. From early arcade classics, to obscure indie titles, to major franchises like BioShock and Civilization, soundtracks are full of classical work. World-renowned classical ensembles perform concerts of game music to sold-out audiences. But what do these combinations of art and entertainment reveal about the cultural value we place on these media? Can classical music ever be video-game music, and can game music ever be classical? By delving into the shifting and often contradictory cultural meanings that emerge when classical music meets video games, this talk explores instances where the lines between the “art” of classical music and the “entertainment” of video games is blurred.

Kyes Stevens MA ’99, MFA ’00 is the founder and director of the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project at Auburn University, a program that serves 10 of the 15 major prisons in Alabama through pre-college and college classes. In 2016, through this program, the first Bachelor of Science degree for the Alabama prison system was launched. Stevens worked with colleagues across the country to build the foundation for the National Alliance for Higher Education in Prison and has also been involved in the development of a national organization to support artists who teach in corrections. In addition, with colleagues from around the country, Stevens met several times with members of the Obama administration at the White House to discuss the role of higher education in criminal justice reform. Stevens earned her MA in Women’s History and MFA in poetry from Sarah Lawrence College. She is a poet who was awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Department of Justice to teach poetry at the Talladega Federal Prison in 2001 and built APAEP from that experience. She has completed eight residencies at the Lillian E. Smith Center for Creative Arts in Clayton, GA and was a co-recipient of the first Lillian E. Smith Writer in Service award. She received the Auburn University Young Alumni Achievement Award in 2012 and an Auburn University Women of Distinction Award in 2010. She was the 2014 Alabama State Council on the Arts Literary Arts Fellowship recipient and, in 2016, was recognized as an Al.com Woman Who Shapes the State.

Linda Gregerson Craft of Poetry—The Second Person

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

Surely the most interesting person in the poem is the second person. The first person has received the great preponderance of our attention: Who is the lyric speaker? Ought we even to speak of a lyric “I”? If we are wrong to speak of a lyric I, what dynamics have led us into this error? Etc. But the “you,” implicit or named, constructed as a cipher or lavishly characterized, has received much less attention. What does it mean to address a you directly in a poem? Where does that leave the rest of the poem’s readers? What sort of vocabulary ought we to use when thinking about a layered set of auditors, some of whom hold privileged status? What difference does it make if we imagine the second person to be actual? To be fictional? How much of the poem is about its ostensible subject and how much of it is about the power dynamic between the I and the you? In this craft talk, we'll explore these questions and others using the examples of specific lyric poems, some of them canonical and some of them quite recent, and we'll have time for discussion afterward.

Lorca defined Duende as having four distinct elements: irrationality, earthiness, a close awareness of death, and the diabolical.

By exploring poems that deftly balance both the dark and the light, we'll also be paying close attention to how the bones of poetry—line, syntax, and music—set the foundation for a new way of making sense of the world.

A lecture to be given by music faculty member Martin Goldray. John Dewey's book, Art as Experience (1934), shows how art fits into his pragmatist philosophy, but it's a rather bewildering, if sometimes inspiring, account of art without more background into his thinking than he provides. This lecture will address the relationship of art to pragmatism more generally, explore how performing and listening to classical music might be illuminated by this way of thinking, and show how his ideas about art have resonated in the art world since his death in 1952.

Science Seminar Series—Nick Rauh Lecture: Finding Simple Solutions

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:35pm-1:35pm Add to calendar

Suppose we manage to find a solution to an equation. Is it the “simplest” solution we could have found? For example, we might note that x = 374 is a solution to x^3 - 587x^2 + 80084x - 157828, but if we think even less hard about it, so is x = 2. Sometimes "small" is what we mean by “simple,” but sometimes we need of notion of “simple” with a little more oomph. (Are 1/7 or sqrt(2)-1 simpler than 1? They're smaller!) In this talk, we'll see some of analytic number theory's tools for finding “simple” solutions to Diophantine equations.

The Inaugural Year: Jeremi Suri Lecture—The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office

Heimbold Visual Arts Center 208

Open to the public

/ Friday

12:30pm-2:00pm Add to calendar

Celebrated historian Jeremi Suri will discuss the rise and fall of the American presidency, from the limited role envisaged by the Founding Fathers to its current status as the most powerful job in the world. He will argue that the presidency is a victim of its own success—the vastness of the job makes it almost impossible to fulfill the expectations placed upon it. As managers of the world's largest economy and military, contemporary presidents must react to a truly globalized world in a twenty-four-hour news cycle. There is little room left for bold vision. This lecture is based on Professor Suri's recently released book, The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office, which is a masterful reassessment of presidential history and essential reading for anyone trying to understand America's fraught political climate.

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

How do we as writers reckon with the violence and injustice inherent in our society? Exploring the artistic landscape of writers such as James Baldwin, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Claudia Rankine, and others, we will discuss a model of how one can balance strong ethical convictions with work that represents racial tensions, dislocation and cruelty. How do writers come to terms with the world we live in? Studying how writers translate violence and inequality in their work, we’ll address methods of erasure, decolonization, and the fragmentation of memory. Audre Lorde wrote: “Poetry is how we name the nameless. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change.”

While recuperating, he composed a 19-minute trio for violin, viola, and cello—music in which he attempted to portray his close brush with death. It is a piece widely regarded today as a masterpiece of the 20th century repertoire. The film includes Schoenberg's children Nuria, Ronald, and Lawrence, relating memories of their father, and concludes with a complete performance of the String Trio, filmed at Schoenberg's Los Angeles home. Directed by David Starobin.

Alejandro Satz Lecture—Black Hole Entropy and Quantum Entanglement (Science Seminar Series)

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:35pm-1:35pm Add to calendar

Black holes are regions where the warping of space and time, as described by Einstein's General Relativity, becomes so intense that light is unable to escape and the region is cut off from the rest of the universe. Many predictions of gravitational physics about black holes were spectacularly confirmed by LIGO's detection of gravitational waves from black hole mergers, which was awarded the 2017 Physics Nobel Prize. In this talk, Alejandro Satz will give a summary of our current understanding of black holes, focusing especially on Stephen Hawking's prediction that black holes have thermal properties which include an entropy proportional to their surface area. He will also explain why black hole entropy is a key clue for building a theory of quantum gravity, and describe some recent research in which we make progress by clarifying the connection between black hole entropy and quantum entanglement entropy.

3D Screening of The Flavor Genome and Q&A with Anicka Yi

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:15pm-6:45pm Add to calendar

Anicka Yi's film, The Flavor Genome (2016, single-channel 3D video, 22 min.), is a techno sensual journey into the unexplored threshold of adaptation, mutation, and hybridization of living organisms. Shot on 3D video, this film complicates technological obsolescence in contemporary visuality by deploying both 3D video and 3D animation systems. Set in the Amazon rainforest and renegade laboratories, the narrative is told through a commercial flavorist who is on the hunt for a mythical orchid which has miraculous properties in the jungles of the Amazon. Events go awry in the jungle as scientific procedures attempt to merge with unforeseen realities leading to unimaginable sensorial outcomes. Under the conceptual premise of the “flavor genome,” the video performs a mapping of perceptual worlds, taking reality as matrices of perceived unique essences which could enable the potential for bio diverse intelligence sharing.

Stephen Snyder Lecture—Being Yoko Ogawa: Translation and Authority (Babel Translation Lecture Series)

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

5:30pm-7:00pm Add to calendar

Yoko Ogawa is one of Japan’s most popular and critically acclaimed writers, and her work in English translation has appeared in The New Yorker and Harper’s. This success has resulted in invitations to the New Yorker Festival, the PEN World Voices Festival, and to numerous other literary prize ceremonies and university campuses—all of which Ogawa has declined. This talk examines the experiences of a translator asked to “speak for” a writer and the ways in which this act parallels and shapes the act of literary translation in the context of the commercial publishing industry. Who and what forces determine the nature of the “original”? What gives a translator “authority” to speak? How do commercial forces and aesthetic standards interact to shape—or deform—the “foreign” text? And what is the role of the translator in negotiating the conflict between foreignizing and domesticating practices in translation? This talk is based on ethnographic research in the Japanese and US publishing industries and examines the careers of Ogawa and Haruki Murakami in English translation.

The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine has returned with an epic movie that’s unlike anything he has done before—an eye-opening call to arms to capture the American Dream and restore it in, of all places, America.

Science Seminar Series—Evolution of Suspensory Locomotion in the Apes: Evidence from Behavioral and Paleontological Data

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:35pm-1:35pm Add to calendar

The living apes practice one of the most unique locomotor behaviors of any mammal: suspension and brachiation. The set of skeletal modifications that allow this bizarre locomotor mode lay the foundation for the even less common bipedalism of humans. But how did these suspensory adaptations originate and are they as distinctive as we think? A survey of behavioral studies and the the fossil record suggests not. One fossil taxon in particular is key to addressing the origins of suspensory locomotion, as it may represent the earliest know ape: Proconsul. Results from a phylogenetic analysis of 816 morphological characters indicates that Proconsul is a hominoid, while phenetic analyses suggest a locomotor mode incorporating a range of behaviors more similar to the locomotor style of new world monkeys than to either the living apes or their sister taxon, the old world monkeys.

Stephanie Campos Lecture—Small Village, Large Hell: Examining the Incarceration of Women in Lima, Peru through an Intersectional Framework (Women's History Colloquium)

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

6:00pm-8:00pm Add to calendar

Using an intersectional framework, this presentation will explore how the Santa Monica prison in Lima, Peru reflects and reproduces hierarchies of race, class, gender, and citizenship. Life history interviews with incarcerated women demonstrates how structural inequalities influenced their entrance into the illicit drug market and subsequent imprisonment. In addition, prisoners competed for scarce resources and privileges. Those with access to advantageous and valued economic, racial, gender, and national positionalities benefited over prisoners. This work also argues that women’s labor is the linchpin between drug trafficking and prison and that the drug trade and the prison in Peru are two parts of a symbiotic whole. This research contributes to a critical questioning of the prison as an adequate response to economic and political insecurity and crisis, a situation not created by those most negatively affected by it.

Jesse Horst Lecture—Slum Clearance, the Cuban Revolution of 1959, and Dilemmas from Post-Obama Havana

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Thursday

5:30pm-7:00pm Add to calendar

This talk challenges prevailing narratives of the Cuban Revolution by exploring the subterranean dynamics of policies towards shantytown communities in Havana—and it considers the significance of this challenge in light of the present day. As government officials sought to relocate sites of informal housing in the 1950s, shantytown leaders organized protests, pressuring officials to generate social welfare initiatives. Although they offered many benefits, these initiatives also silenced local activists. The policies of the 1959 Revolution and the silence that followed grew from precisely this compromise. As urban poverty has reemerged in 21st century Havana, we will reflect on the meaning of this history amid the volatile currents of US-Cuban relations following Barack Obama’s unprecedented opening.

He plans to talk about two fragmented Old English poems, "The Ruin," and "Wulf and Eadwacer," and will offer multiple translations of each.

By analyzing successful models and exploring the contours, elements, and language of the lyric essay, we'll come to a deeper understanding of its purposes and pleasures.

Science Center 103

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

12:30pm-1:30pm Add to calendar

Urban ecosystems are the most novel kind of ecosystems in terrestrial environments on Earth. Even as urbanization overcomes other natural habitats and displaces many species, cities also provide habitat for a surprising amount of native biodiversity, mixed in with non-native species. Urbanization therefore presents an opportunity to study how communities of species are assembled in novel environments.

Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich Craft Talk—Structure, Risk, and Meaning

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

What drives the writer of personal narrative is often an impulse to speak where there has been silence. Early drafts may be guided by intuition, a gravitational pull towards what lies unresolved. And yet sooner or later, the work requires structure. This talk will address the process of finding a structure that isn’t merely an organizing principle, but rather calls forth theme and stakes, and how considering structure can help the writer crack through to deeper, riskier layers of meaning.

Trans Europe Migration: Following the Refugees' Trail Photography Exhibit Opening with Guest Speaker Sana Mustafa, Syrian Refugee & Activist

In 2015, the number of migrants and refugees reaching Europe reached an unprecedented peak, with more than one million people arriving in Greece and Italy from Turkey and Libya. In October 2015, photographer Rocco Rorandelli was assigned by Vanity Fair to cover the crisis along the "Balkan Route," using aerial imaging. This unique point of view provides an interesting perspective on the issues, detaching the viewer from single individuals and showing the phenomenon as a universal human trait.

Adelle Waldman Craft Talk—Dealing with Rejection: A Writer's Guide

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

As an unpublished fiction writer in her twenties, it was easy for Adelle Waldman to imagine that well-known fiction writers had been anointed from their earliest youth and had never suffered through years of self-doubt, doubt from others (parents, friends) and, yes, rejection. Now knowing that's not the case, she still believes writers should talk about this more. In this craft talk, Waldman will talk candidly about having her first novel rejected by every publisher in town, an experience that seemed devastating at the time—but which later came to seem like a piece of good fortune because it paved the way for her to write a better novel. More importantly than her own story, though, is a truth she'd like to impress on everyone: how well one endures rejection is, she believes, one of the key distinguishing characteristics between successful writers and those who give up. We should put as much care into learning how to handle rejection constructively—avoiding both the extremes of rage at the one doing the rejecting on the one hand and despair/self-loathing on the other extreme—as we put into making the finest sentences possible.

The Inaugural Year: Emily Katz Anhalt Lecture—Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths

Library Meeting Room aka Pillow Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

6:30pm-8:30pm Add to calendar

In this lecture based on her new book, Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths, classics faculty member Emily Katz Anhalt reveals how three masterworks of classical Greek literature can teach us, as they taught the ancient Greeks, to recognize violent revenge as a marker of illogical thinking and poor leadership. Rage may be a natural reaction to insult, injury, or injustice, but Homer, Euripides, and Sophocles demonstrate the foolishness of celebrating those who indulge in violent rage. These time-honored texts emphasize the costs of our dangerous penchant for glorifying violent rage and those who would indulge in it. By promoting compassion, rational thought, and debate, Greek myths help to arm us against the tyrants we might serve and the tyrants we might become. Light refreshments will be served. Copies of Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths will be available for sale.

Keetje Kuipers Craft Talk—Beyond the Precious Self: Publishing Your Failed Poem

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

Teachers of the craft of poetry often instruct their students to take risks on the page, encouraging wildness of language, innovation in form, and even excavation of the dangerously personal. And, because these elements are praised in poetry, their pursuit often garners admiration. But what if our goal were not to be admired but reviled? Risking the sanctity of self and the potential revulsion of our readers might yield poems that, though fatally flawed, could catapult vital conversations forward, both within and without our insular community of writers.

Stephen O'Connor Craft Talk—Dream Logic: Kafka's “A Country Doctor”

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

“A Country Doctor,” the title story of one of the only two books Kafka published during his lifetime, has been dismissed by some critics as “a dream,” which is to say: as an unmitigated outpouring of the author’s unconscious. In fact, this fast paced and richly evocative story is a carefully calibrated construction that plays conventional plot elements against one another in order to deliver both protagonist and reader to a moment in which “meaning” emerges out of the complex interaction of suggestive, but ultimately imponderable images. Stephen O’Connor will do a close reading of the story, focusing on the relationship between its conventional elements and “dream logic.” He will also touch on the profound influence “A Country Doctor” has had on his own work.

Painter Matthew F Fisher lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, CA. He has been the recipient of numerous residencies and awards including the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant (2016), Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, New York (2015, 2007) and the New York Foundation for the Arts (2010). Recent solo exhibitions include Taymore Grahne Gallery, New York, NY, and One River, Englewood, NJ (2017), Airlock Gallery, San Marco, CA (2016), and Sardine, Brooklyn, NY (2015). Recent group shows include The Dot Project, London, UK (2017), Work Release, Norfolk, VA (2017), Ampersand Gallery, Portland, OR (2017). The works in the exhibit, says the artist, are images of a moment, or maybe several, that have happened or will. Or maybe not. They're not magical, they're not superficial or surreal. Rather they are once in a life time, action frozen just at the right instant so that everything lines up with the edge of the canvas or other elements within the painting. They are paintings heavily indebted to history, he thinks that's more important than the idea of the future, but they are also free of history by being futuristic. Our location, right then and there is transformed into something special. Our cosmic placement, both in space, time, and on this earth, was the exact reason why we saw what we see.
