Miscellaneous



Someone please go to this and tell me about it. I can’t make it:
"Laying low, aiming high, and keeping the faith in contemporary and emerging art": a panel discussion with art professionals organized by the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), and hosted by the Drawing Center.

Most of this article about the transportation hub at ground zero is interesting. Specially this idea:
The result is a monument to the creative ego that celebrates Mr. Calatrava’s engineering prowess but little else. And it reinforces the likelihood that one day, decades from now, when the site is finally completed, it will stand as a testament to our inability to put self-interests aside in the face of one of America’s greatest tragedies.


Finally, this too sounds pretty interesting, although perhaps too academic.

Considering Forgiveness Book Launch Celebration
Monday, May 11, 2009 – 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The New School, Theresa Lang Community and Student Center
55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor, New York City
Admission free

Considering Forgiveness is both a literal and a metaphorical meeting. Join us to celebrate the Vera List Center’s first book, edited by New School faculty member Aleksandra Wagner, as many of the contributors discuss the political—and personal—relevance of this controversial term.

What do we mean when we say forgiveness? Are we able to think it, and with what goals and hopes in mind? Forgiveness emerges here not as an agenda offering closure but as a strategy and form of awareness; a legal, sociological, psychological, anthropological, theological and ethical concept that demands engagement.

Speakers include
Ayreen Anastas, An Everyday Judgment of Eternity
Gregg Bordowitz, Admissions
Rene Gabri, When Final Peace Was Not (So) Final
Andrea Geyer, I Beg Your Pardon
Sharon Hayes, Thematic Apperception Test #22: Gay Power
Lin + Lam, Dark Meat or White Meat?
Jeffrey Olick, Times for Forgiveness
Brian Price, Texas 2008
Jane Taylor, Reconciling the Odds
Elisabeth Young-Bruehl. Hannah Arendt on Forgiveness
