Where Art Thou: Nasty Women Edition
Written by Riva Weinstein
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/ theatrically-inclined on campus.
- This Monday, Feb 26, check out “Jerusalem Lives At the Palestinian Museum,” a discussion with some of the figures involved with the recent “Jerusalem Lives” exhibit in Birzeit. This innovative, hard-hitting exhibit was the inaugural of the Palestinian Museum. The panelists will discuss: Why Jerusalem now? In the context of Israeli rule and a scattered nation, can projects like the Palestinian Museum succeed in educating the public, documenting Palestinian histories, and sparking the imagination of justice? The panel will be held at 6 pm in Int Affairs 1501.
- Miss the Athena Film Festival screening of Lady Bird? Not to worry: Barnard is so proud of our graduate, Greta Gerwig, that the Lenfest Center is holding another screening this Thursday. Head to the Lenfest Center for the Arts at 5:30 or 8:30 pm to see this 5-time Oscar nominated and 2-time Golden Globe-winning film about a high school senior’s humorous struggles with her mother and the pressures of Catholic school. Come dressed in your red carpet best or opt for comfort in sweats! Rush tickets available 15 minutes before the show.
- This weekend, the Barnard Theatre Department is presenting Jeune Terre, a new play written by Gabrielle Reisman and directed by Alice Reagan. The play tells the story of Jeune Terre, a Louisiana town grappling with the threat of rising waters in its immediate vicinity, and a theatre troupe that arrives just in time for the approaching storm to tell an old story in a new way. Head to the Glicker-Milstein Theatre in Diana LL2 at 8pm all three days, or 3pm on Saturday.
- This one sounds amazing: next Saturday, March 3rd, head downtown for Nasty Women of the Metropolitan Museum, a 2-hour tour of the women who shattered the glass ceilings of their day – female pharaohs, empresses, pre-revolutionary French scientists, suffragettes, and many more.
