Founded in 1967 by Governor Nelson Rockefeller as the “cultural gem” of the State University of New York, Purchase College enjoys an outstanding international reputation for delivering a liberal education that emphasizes inquiry through direct engagement with the arts, letters, media, and sciences. In addition to our distinguished academic programs, the college is home to the Neuberger Museum of Art, which is celebrated internationally with modern, contemporary, and African art, and The Performing Arts Center, where many of the events listed in this calendar are staged. We invite the larger community to join us for performances by our students, and by the acclaimed artists, lecturers, performers, and scholars we welcome to Purchase College. Many events listed in this publication— including those located in the Dance, Music, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Student Services, Visual Arts, and Durst Family Humanities buildings, as well as the Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery—are free of charge. For tickets to events in The Performing Arts Center and the Neuberger Museum of Art, please refer to the guide on page 44 of this booklet. We very much look forward to sharing the arts and culture of Purchase with you.

Physical Painting On View: February 16–March 18 Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 17, 4:30pm Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery Visual Arts Building Open Monday–Friday, 10am–5pm and Wednesdays, 10am–8pm Curated by Jennifer Samet, in conversation with Scott Wolniak, Physical Painting is about work that is anchored in the format of painting, but which incorporates materials and techniques other than paint on canvas. The artists embrace medium hybridity by building object-like works. They use both destructive and constructive approaches: sticking elements together, embedding objects within, pouring, digging, building up, and cutting away the surface. Wood, plaster slabs, ceramics, patterned textiles, consumer items, shaped surfaces, wire, and glue are used along with, or in place of, traditional pigments and support. Processes such as casting, assembling, and stitching mingle with brushing and mark making. This exhibition gathers 4

a multi-generational group of artists from across the United States to reveal this expansive direction in contemporary art including; Liv Aanrud, Eleanna Anagnos, Yevgeniya Baras, Michelle Grabner, Ron Gorchov, Hilary Harnischfeger, David Lloyd, Dona Nelson, Larry Poons, Joyce Robins, Cordy Ryman, and Scott Wolniak.

Two Panel Discussions: Art Materials Art Materials Part I: Handmade — Craft, Material, and Skill in Contemporary Art Wednesday, February 17, 6:30pm Neuberger Museum of Art Study Event ticket information page 44 Glenn Adamson, Director of New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, and Jennifer Scanlan, Independent Curator and Lecturer, Parsons and The New School of Design, analyze and contextualize the work of Liza Lou, one among a growing number of contemporary artists who use methods and materials traditionally associated with craft. Moderated by Sarah Warren, Associate Professor of Art History, Purchase College. ​

incorporating materials and techniques other than paint on canvas. The artists embrace medium hybridity by building object-like works.

The Instant as Image: Moments of Action in Photography from the Permanent Collection On View: January 31–June 5 Neuberger Museum of Art Open Tuesday–Sunday, 12–5pm and Wednesdays, 12–8pm Admission information page 44 Built around Barbara Morgan’s exuberant images of dancers and Larry Fink’s surreal party photographs, this exhibition critically explores the camera’s unique ability to capture movement. Interest in representing

movement through photography began as early as 1850 but reached a turning point in the 1930s with the invention of 35-millimeter roll film and handheld cameras. Artists working in documentary, street, and snapshot style have depicted motion as an expressive device rooted in the real world. Their work both bears witness and conveys the beauty of chance capture. The Instant as Image also features the work of Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Harry Callahan, Larry Clark, John Cohen, Elliott Erwitt, Lee Friedlander, Andre Kertész, Danny Lyon, Mary Ellen Mark, Hans Namuth, Nicholas Nixon, Edward Steichen, and Andy Warhol. The Instant as Image: Moments of Action in Photography from the Permanent Collection is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Chelsea Spengemann, independent curator. Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.

Pursuit of Clarity: Adams, Van Dyke, Weston and the Straight Photography Movement On View: January 31–June 5 Neuberger Museum of Art Open Tuesday–Sunday, 12–5pm and Wednesdays, 12–8pm Admission information page 44

Ansel Adams, Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston, three lifelong friends, each contributed to promoting photography as a fine art over the course of their distinctive careers, which converged with the founding of Group f.64 in 1932. Named after the smallest aperture setting on a large format camera, which could be used to produce photographs with foreground and background in sharp focus, the West Coast collective formally existed for just a few years. Along with classic close-ups of vegetables, flowers, and bodies, the exhibition includes portraits and landscapes made within the structure of straight photography. Photographs highlighting the artists’ formative style from the Neuberger Museum’s permanent collection are presented alongside publications including the work of the Group f.64 co-founders. Pursuit of Clarity: Adams, Van Dyke, Weston and the Straight Photography Movement is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Karolina Hac, a Neuberger Curatorial Fellow and graduate student in the Purchase College MA Program in Art History, Criticism, and Theory. Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.

In this project, Wang explores the shift in photographic technology from analog film to digital practices.

Landed On View: March 20–June 6 Neuberger Museum of Art Open Tuesday–Sunday, 12–5pm and Wednesdays, 12–8pm Admission information page 44 The history of a tract of land shifts over time like tectonic plates, eras heaving up and pushing aside prior eras. Artists have always sought to document the landscape, to capture a fixed moment in history, and contemporary artists are broadening their depiction of landscape to include surveillance footage by satellites, the flow of refugees pushing against borders, the points of access to wireless transmission, and the rights to ancestral grounds. With technology’s growing prevalence and affordability, the exhibition Landed features artists using new tools with which to


explore and explode the concept of land: camera-enabled quadcopters that change perception of scale and spatial order, topography, and access to private or contested areas; large, crowdsourced data sets and increased processing capacity supporting data visualization and cartography; radiography and ground-penetrating radar, detecting anthropological and environmental impact. Landed is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Jacqueline Shilkoff, Curator of New Media and Director of Digital Initiatives. This exhibition is made possible with support provided by ArtsWestchester, with support from the Westchester County Government. Additional funding for the exhibition has been provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.

Louise Fishman: A Retrospective

On View: April 3–July 31 Neuberger Museum of Art Open Tuesday–Sunday, 12–5pm and Wednesdays, 12–8pm Admission information page 44 The Neuberger Museum of Art has organized the first museum survey of over fifty paintings and drawings by senior American artist Louise Fishman created from 1968 to the present. Fishman employs the formal language of Abstract Expressionism to create large-scale abstractions that share the physicality, dynamism, and emotional power of that movement, yet lack bravado. Visually poetic and intimate in tone, Fishman’s work is fully informed by a feminist perspective as well as aspects of her Jewish background. This exhibition will trace the course and development of Fishman’s career culminating in the calligraphic and gestural abstractions for which she is widely known. The retrospective is accompanied by the first fullyillustrated, scholarly monograph on the artist published by DelMonico Books Prestel. Louise Fishman: A Retrospective is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Helaine Posner, Chief Curator. Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the National Endowment of the Arts and by Susan and James Dubin. Additional support has been provided by Lauren B. Cramer, Helen Stambler Neuberger and James Neuberger, and Sara and Michelle Vance Waddell. Support is also provided by Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.

Conversation: Chris Wedge — Reflections on a Career in Animation Tuesday, January 26, 7:30pm Humanities Theatre Durst Family Humanities Building

Interviewed by Professor Iris Cahn of the School of Film and Media Studies at Purchase College, Chris Wedge talks about his career in animation, starting with his undergraduate years as a student at Purchase, and continuing with the choices and influences that brought him to where he is today. Wedge started his career in computer animation at MAGI/ Synthavision, where he animated key sequences for TRON. In pursuit of a graduate degree in computer graphics at OSU ACCAD, he created two short films: “Tuber’s Two Step” and “Balloon Guy.” He wrote and directed Blue Sky’s first film, “Bunny,” which won more than 25 international awards for animation excellence, including an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1998. Wedge went on to direct Blue Sky’s first two computer-animated feature films, Ice Age (nominated for Best Animated Feature Film 2002) and Robots. He was executive producer of Ice Age: The Meltdown, Dr.Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who!, and the global hits Rio, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, and Ice Age: Continental Drift. He directed Epic, which was released in 2013. He recently completed his first live action/hybrid film Monster Trucks, due in 2016.

Film Festival: The Apu Trilogy — Satyajit Ray Sunday, January 31, 12:30–7pm The PepsiCo Theatre at The Performing Arts Center Tickets $20 (day) / $10 (single) Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road, 1955) 12:30pm Aparajito (The Unvanquished, 1956) 3pm Apur Sansar (The World of Apu, 1959) 5pm

Satyajit Ray’s meticulously restored milestone of world cinema is screened on one day. The Apu Trilogy brought India into the golden age of international art-house film, following one indelible character, a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world. These delicate masterworks—Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road), Aparajito (The Unvanquished), and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu)—based on two books by Bibhutibhusan Banerjee, were shot over the course of five years, and each stands on its own as a tender, visually radiant journey. They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane movies ever made— essential works for any film lover. This event is made possible in part by the India Cultural Center of Greenwich, CT, Janus Films, and the Purchase College Foundation.

DURST DISTINGUISHED LECTURE

Cinema in the Age of Screens: A Conversation with Ken Jacobs and Manohla Dargis Thursday, March 31, 4:30pm Choral Hall, Music Building Ken Jacobs has been making movies and exploding conventions and minds for more than half a century. In the late 1950s, he began work on a series of playfully anarchic, visually combustible films—including the monumental Star Spangled to Death—that turned cinematic rules on their straight-laced head. Personal rather than industrial, these underground movies were the beginning of what has turned into a lifelong inquiry into cinema, its materiality and magic, its shadows and illusions, its times and spaces. Whether working in film or in digital or with his own ingenious invention— the Nervous Magic Lantern—Jacobs, in close collaboration with his wife, Flo Jacobs, creates art that re-asks that essential question once posed by the French theorist André Bazin: “What is cinema?” In this program, Jacobs and Manohla Dargis revisit André Bazin’s question “What is cinema?,” which, perhaps counterintuitively, is as urgent in the (digital) age of YouTube cat videos as it was when Orson Welles was shaking up the art and industry. The event includes a live performance by Jacobs, who will present his “Nervous Magic Lantern,” an invention that may answer Bazin’s query.

MANOHLA DARGIS

M A RY E DWA R D S MEMORIAL LECTURE

Manohla Dargis: Reflections on a Life in Film Criticism Monday, April 18, 4:30pm The Red Room Student Services Building This year’s Mary Edwards Memorial Lecture is the culmination of the programs presented by Manohla Dargis, award-winning film critic and 2015–16 Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature. In this talk, Dargis reflects on her life as a woman working in the male-dominated field of film criticism. She takes the audience on a tour of the career that led from her undergraduate years at Purchase College, where she earned a B.A. in Literature, through her work writing criticism for the Village Voice, LA Weekly, and, now, as co-chief film critic, for The New York Times. Professor Mary Edwards was a founding member of the Purchase College faculty and was instrumental in developing the Women’s Studies Program. Following her death in 1994 her family and friends created an endowment to fund an annual lecture in Woman’s Studies to honor Professor Edwards’s commitment to her students and to the elimination of social and political inequality.

Purchase Dance Company: Graham, Balanchine, Abraham, Beller Friday, April 15, 8pm Saturday, April 16, 2pm & 8pm Sunday, April 17, 3pm The PepsiCo Theatre at The Performing Arts Center Tickets $20

The Spring 2016 concert program features excerpts from Martha Graham’s riveting anti-war statement, Chronicle (1936)—a stirring response to the rise of fascism set to music by Wallingford Riegger. George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments (1946) is also a highlight of the program. The ballet’s four movements reflect the medieval belief that human beings are made up of four different humors that determine a person’s temperament. Set to music by Paul Hindemith, The Four Temperaments, is emblematic of Balanchine’s bold neo-classical aesthetic. Conservatory of Dance alumnus Kyle Abraham, a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, presents Counterpoint (2015), a virtuosic work with a dichotomatic score mixing Johannes Brahms and electronic music. Finally, groundbreaking Brooklyn-based dance artist Alexandra Beller, whose work stands on the edge between dance and theater, presents a new piece created especially for the Purchase Dance Company.

Marianne Hirsch: Small Acts— Mobilizing Memory Across Borders

Caryl Phillips: A Reading and Conversation

Monday, February 8, 4:30pm The Red Room Student Services Building How can the memory of violent pasts be mobilized for a more progressive and hopeful future? This talk responds to the renewed monumentality we find in memory museums, memorials and commemorative rituals that perpetuate nationalism and ethnocentrism. Connecting the memory of the Holocaust with that of other histories of political violence, this talk searches for mobile and mutable artistic practices that can affect little resistances and small acts of repair. Marianne Hirsch is a William Peterfield Trent Professor of English and Comparative Literature and Professor in the Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Columbia University. She is the author of many books including, most recently, The Generation of Postmemory: Writing and Visual Culture After the Holocaust (Columbia University Press, 2012). Burt Sachs was a staunch supporter of the School of Humanities at Purchase College. For many years, he chaired the Steering Committee of the Friends of Humanities, a group that supports the projects of the School of Humanities and its faculty and students. As an auditor in courses, Burt was the quintessential friend of the Humanities, fully engaged with the questions addressed across the Humanities. Generous gifts from Burt’s family and friends support an annual lecture in his memory.

The author of eleven award-winning novels, Phillips is also a prolific essayist, journalist, screenwriter, and playwright.

Phillips’s most recent novel, The Lost Child, revisits the story of Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. Phillips is the recipient of numerous prizes and awards, including the Martin Luther King Memorial Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a British Council Fellowship, a Lannan Foundation Fellowship, the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, the Commonwealth Writers Prize, and the 2006 PEN/Beyond the Margins Award. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the Royal Society of the Arts, and recipient of the 2013 Anthony N. Sabga Caribbean Award for Excellence.

Lawrence Joseph: A Reading and Conversation

Aminatta Forna: A Reading and Conversation

Wednesday, March 16, 4:30pm Neuberger Museum of Art Study Free Admission

Wednesday, April 13, 4:30pm Neuberger Museum of Art Study Free Admission

Lawrence Joseph grew up in Detroit, the grandson of Lebanese and Syrian immigrants, and moved to New York City in 1981. One of the great city poets of his generation, Joseph addresses in his work race, history, and politics, focusing with particular attention on the many forms of violence—military and financial in particular—that plague the contemporary United States. He has published several collections of poetry, most recently Codes, Precepts, Biases, and Taboos: Poems 1973–1993 (2005) and Into It (2005). He has also published two works of prose: The Game Changed (2011), a collection of essays, and Lawyerland (1997), an experimental “nonfiction novel.” In recent years, his poems have appeared in, among other places, The New Yorker, The London Review of Books, The Nation, and Commonweal. The recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, Joseph is the Tinnelly Professor of Law at St. John’s University Law School.

Aminatta Forna was born in Scotland, raised in Sierra Leone and Britain, and spent periods of her childhood in Iran, Thailand and Zambia. Forna is the award-winning author of the novels The Hired Man, The Memory of Love, and Ancestor Stones, and a memoir, The Devil that Danced on the Water, as well as essays in Granta, The Guardian, The Observer and Vogue. A journalist and broadcaster, she has written for BBC radio and, for BBC Television, “The Lost Libraries of Timbuktu.” Forna’s writing—fiction, non-fiction, and journalism—bears witness to the legacies of civil war in Sierra Leone and elsewhere. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, she is the recipient of the Commonwealth Writers Prize, the Hurston-Wright Award, and the Windham-Campbell Literature Prize. She is currently a Lannan Visiting Chair at Georgetown University. The Durst Distinguished Lecture Series is made possible by the Roy & Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature Endowment.

Eben Kirksey: Hope in Times of Enviromental Catastrophe

EBEN KIRKSEY

volcanic eruptions, and economic disasters—Kirksey explores the possibility of grounding modest hopes. The story of Milton Brenes, a Costa Rican farmer, illustrates how to recreate a forest in the aftermath of disaster. Milton collaborates with a multitude of plants, animals, and students on eleven hectares of derelict pasture near the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Rather than focusing his efforts on preserving rare species, he cultivates alliances with weedy trees that are helping him generate lively ecological communities. Gleaning objects and organisms from the detritus of industrial food production, he is fostering an ecosystem that will endure many possible futures.

Race in/and Cinema: A Screening and Conversation with Arthur Jafa and Manohla Dargis Sunday, February 28, 4:30–6:30pm Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture 515 Malcolm X Boulevard New York City Free Admission For decades, the sui generis American artist and cinematographer Arthur Jafa has moved fluidly between the avant-garde and the mainstream as he’s explored the linkages among art, identity, race, representation, and the moving image. His work transcends easy classification: he has directed music videos; served as the director of photography for Spike Lee’s Crookyln and Julie Dash’s landmark film Daughters of the Dust; and had his work exhibited in cinematheques and galleries. In 2014, Jafa, Elissa Blount-Moorhead and Malick Sayeed created the film studio TNEG to create black movies. This evening, we will watch a TNEG production: Jafa’s brilliant Dreams Are Colder Than Life (2014), an experimental documentary that he directed for German television on the anniversary of the March on Washington. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Jafa and Manohla Dargis and Q&A with the audience. This program is one of several organized by Purchase Alumna, Manohla Dargis, the 2015–16 Roy & Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature. Co-chief film critic for the New York Times, Dargis majored in literature at Purchase College.
