Now, it WILL be on display until June, but you won’t get free wine.
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.
Next Thursday, Sep. 20, head to Miller Theater for the opening of Redecode II: La Dorada, a new installation from Dominican-American artist Joiri Minaya. Minaya explores and deconstructs “tropical” design, especially in relation to the female subject, as an exotifying invention of the Global North. Come for a conversation with Minaya and Wallach Art Gallery curator Deborah Cullen.
Sep. 14-16 and Sep. 20-23, the Lenfest Center for the Arts is hosting NY Indie Guy: Ira Deutchman and the Rise of Independent Film, honoring the work of CU Film Professor Ira Deutchman in distributing, marketing and producing hundreds of independent films. Check out the Lenfest site for a full lineup of the groundbreaking films being screened each evening, many of which boast a Q&A talkback with the filmmakers or performers. ($8 per film with CUID)
Next Friday, September 21 is College Night at the Frick Collection! All undergrad and grad students are invited to this Gilded Age-era mansion for a free night of live music, gallery talks, sketching, and more.
This weekend, World Maker Faire returns for its 9th year to the New York Hall of Science in Queens. It’s one of the East Coast’s biggest science fairs, showcasing new technology, innovation, art, fashion and much more. Check out the website for the lineup of workshops and events.
