Where Art Thou: Under The Tsars Edition

This is your brain on imperialism.

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.

On Campus:

  • Concerts, concerts everywhere! Looking for vocal acid jazz? Sahana Narayanan and the Faculty house have you covered this Wednesday. Prefer Latin jazz? Acclaimed musicians abound this Thursday at the Event Oval. Rather try something a little new, like groovy Brazilian choro? Regional de NY is performing next Saturday at the Miller Theater. Rather stick to the basics? The quintessential Julliard String Quartet would love to see you at the Broadway Presbyterian Church on Thursday. Check event pages for ticket information.
  • There’s a new art exhibit up at the Harriman Institute, and it involves baby Stalin. Head to the International Affairs building this Tuesday for an opening (yes, wine) and talk with Anne Bobroff-Hajal about her exhibit, Peasants, Clans, and Effervescent Absolutists. Her pieces explore how Russia’s ruling elites have exploited the population throughout history to retain power.
  • Third Wheel Improv sneaks in the first show of the semester this Friday, October 5th at 9 PM. Head to John Jay Lounge for Third Wheel Improv Finds its Real Dad to find out if you ARE or ARE NOT Third Wheel Improv’s father.

Off Campus:

  • Tomorrow at 5 PM, head to Common Notions publishing house in Brooklyn for a talk with Silvia Federici about her new book Witches, Witch-Hunting and Women. Federici examines the modern war on women in the context of 16th- and 17th century witch hunts, revisiting the themes of Caliban and the Witch.
  • Comic Con starts this weekend! Do you have your tickets? There’s no missing out on one of the world’s largest celebrations of comics, pop culture, art, cosplay and more.
