Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L. Kuhn Endowment Fund, and the Care of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Collection Endowment.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Organized by the Harvard Art Museums. Curated by Laura Muir, Research Curator in the Division of Academic and Public Programs, Harvard Art Museums. Support for this project is provided by endowed funds, including the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

The Harvard Ballet Company is excited to announce our spring 2019 production, "in search of." Inspired by the act of searching, as well as the array of emotions that arise from such an act, dancers move through the spectrum of the external to the internal search, exploring not only choreographers’ personal ties to searching but also the universality of this shared human experience.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Despite growing up in a post-apocalyptic world riddled with war and pollution, Princess Nausicaä has acquired an otherworldly communion with the natural world and a saint-like adoration from the local populace. Drawing on inspiration from a world of myth and science fiction, Miyazaki’s fantastic tale sealed his fate as a master animator of realms where beautiful, toxic spores fall like snow upon the corpses of giant insects, where a medieval-esque society behaves judiciously and harmoniously while honoring the wisdom of children, elders, witches and wizards, and where Nausicaä flies freely through the air on her glider, performing outrageous feats, and winning the hearts and minds of all species as she attempts to save her valley from destruction and discover the secrets of the forest. Unlike most superheroes, Nausicaä acts out of compassion and a belief in an inherent goodness and balance in the universe, that it is fear and alienation, not evil, which drives war and ecological disharmony.

The Samurai Vagabonds

Virtually unknown outside of (and even within) Japan, this Shochiku New Wave gem is set in a mining bunkhouse wherein a woman who survives a double suicide becomes entwined in a peculiar relationship with her dead lover's brother, a killer on the run. Another significant yet overlooked progenitor of the New Wave's theoretical and formal ideals, Tsutomu Tamura only made this one film as a director before leaving Shochiku to create an independent production company with Nagisa Oshima and write scripts for many of the renowned director's films, including "The Catch" (1961), "Violence at Noon" (1966) and "Boy" (1969).

The End of Love

A leading postwar Japanese film critic and theorist who co-founded the seminal film magazine "Eiga Hihyo" (Film Criticism) in 1957, Eizo Yamagiwa made his directorial debut with this independent feature — long thought lost until a negative was recently discovered — about a group of idle bourgeois students known as the "Roppongi Tribe" (Roppongi zoku). Depicting the resignation and nihilism of the postwar generation in the years following Anpo Treaty conflicts through a coming-of-age narrative, Yamagiwa offers sharp criticism of the prevalent characterizations of Japan's new youth offered by Nikkatsu's taiyozoku ("Sun Tribe") films and the New Wave at large.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Organized by the Harvard Art Museums.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

The End of Love

A leading postwar Japanese film critic and theorist who co-founded the seminal film magazine "Eiga Hihyo" (Film Criticism) in 1957, Eizo Yamagiwa made his directorial debut with this independent feature — long thought lost until a negative was recently discovered — about a group of idle bourgeois students known as the "Roppongi Tribe" (Roppongi zoku). Depicting the resignation and nihilism of the postwar generation in the years following Anpo Treaty conflicts through a coming-of-age narrative, Yamagiwa offers sharp criticism of the prevalent characterizations of Japan's new youth offered by Nikkatsu's taiyozoku ("Sun Tribe") films and the New Wave at large.

A Midwife’s Tale

In one of his last films, Rogers worked with writer Laurie Kahn-Levitt to adapt Laurel Thatcher Ulrich’s Pulitzer Prize winning book, "A Midwife’s Tale," into a feature-length film for PBS’ American Experience. Ulrich’s book was already a radical text, one that used the life of an ordinary woman, Martha Ballard — as told in her own voice through the detailed diary she kept from 1785-1812 — to tell a socioeconomic history of rural life in New England and to interpret the everyday struggle, violence and mundanity of women’s lives in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Combining elements of documentary and fiction, the filmmakers not only bring Martha Ballard to life on screen, but also illustrate the often hidden labor of historical research by showing Ulrich herself performing the detailed and expansive detective work of interpreting Ballard’s life through the document she has left behind.

Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep

Exhibitions-Current Glowing under black lights, California artist Lily Simonson’s luminescent paintings embody a synergy between art and science that reveals new ways of seeing and understanding life forms in the deep ocean. Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep presents six original mural-sized paintings that literally glow with luminescent pigments and together create an immersive visual experience in which light and color materialize out of a sea of darkness, giving form to a hidden alien universe. Through her extraordinary art, Simonson envelops us in this astonishing world, invites us to share in the excitement of exploration and discovery, and challenges our preconceptions of what it is to be alive. Simonson’s work is inspired by explorations of deep-ocean life made in collaboration with Harvard University professor Peter Girguis. Simonson’s art reflects a passion for the process of science, deep affection for the natural world, and dedication to seeking out and “bringing to light,” the beauty and mystery of places and life for… Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

Stepping Up: Business in the Era of Climate Change: Climate Politics and Business

In the United States, business has controlled the policy agenda for addressing climate change at the federal level, and the result has been obfuscation and delay.

Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep

Exhibitions-Current Glowing under black lights, California artist Lily Simonson’s luminescent paintings embody a synergy between art and science that reveals new ways of seeing and understanding life forms in the deep ocean. Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep presents six original mural-sized paintings that literally glow with luminescent pigments and together create an immersive visual experience in which light and color materialize out of a sea of darkness, giving form to a hidden alien universe. Through her extraordinary art, Simonson envelops us in this astonishing world, invites us to share in the excitement of exploration and discovery, and challenges our preconceptions of what it is to be alive. Simonson’s work is inspired by explorations of deep-ocean life made in collaboration with Harvard University professor Peter Girguis.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

The political origins of Mexico’s corruption

In contexts where corruption is widespread, why do some incumbents choose to not be corrupt? My research argues that party loyalty is a major influence to reduce corruption and test this argument using fine-grained data of $12 billion audited to 3,601 local incumbents over a period of 16 years. Contributing to an unsettled and vibrant debate about the influence of partisan politics in corruption, our data allow us to test three possible mechanisms that could be driving political actors to limit the misappropriation of public resources during their tenure: insurance mechanisms, according to which incumbents reduce corruption to avoid prosecution; party loyalty, where corruption diminishes to protect political cliques from public discredit, and ideological incentives, where corruption diminishes because it is part of the programmatic agenda of incumbent’s party. We find the greatest evidence in favor of party loyalty. Our results suggest the existence of a corruption political cycle in which party loyalty modul… Gazette Classification: Lecture.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

LOBSTER WAR: The Fight Over the World's Richest Fishing Grounds

"Lobster War" is an award-winning documentary film about a conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea known as the Gray Zone were traditionally fished by U.S. lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster population has surged. As a result, Canadians have begun to assert their sovereignty, warring with the Americans to claim the bounty. Directed by David Abel, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter at The Boston Globe, and Andy Laub, an award-winning documentarian. Abel and Laub are also producers of the acclaimed Discovery Channel documentary Sacred Cod. See more at www.lobsterwar.com. A Q&A with filmmaker David Abel will follow the screening.

Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep

Exhibitions-Current Glowing under black lights, California artist Lily Simonson’s luminescent paintings embody a synergy between art and science that reveals new ways of seeing and understanding life forms in the deep ocean. Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep presents six original mural-sized paintings that literally glow with luminescent pigments and together create an immersive visual experience in which light and color materialize out of a sea of darkness, giving form to a hidden alien universe. Through her extraordinary art, Simonson envelops us in this astonishing world, invites us to share in the excitement of exploration and discovery, and challenges our preconceptions of what it is to be alive. Simonson’s work is inspired by explorations of deep-ocean life made in collaboration with Harvard University professor Peter Girguis. Simonson’s art reflects a passion for the process of science, deep affection for the natural world, and dedication to seeking out and “bringing to light,” the beauty and mystery of places and life for… Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

Mainstreaming Nuclear Security? The IAEA's Role After the Summits

The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano, has announced that the IAEA will henceforth “mainstream” its nuclear security activities. Since the Nuclear Security Summit process ended in 2016 the Vienna-based Agency has resumed its role as the most important multilateral body dealing with nuclear security. While, as expected, it has been unable to replicate the high-level political profile afforded to nuclear security by the summits, it has ramped up its convening activities, adopted new thematic approaches, and consolidated its advisory and technical services. But it is not clear what DG Amano’s statement implied for the future of the Agency's role in nuclear security and for its other mandates. Dr. Findlay will appraise the IAEA's profile since 2016, consider the likely meaning and implications of “mainstreaming” such activity into the Agency's broader portfolio, and propose ways of enhancing the organization's vital contribution in the future.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

Again Not the Same River: A Cycle of Four Compositions

Josh Levine is an American composer who explores the unity of memory and imagination through ever-changing manifestations of the work’s core materials in a network of processes inspired by movement and the contemplation of change both in the physical world and the psyche. As a Radcliffe fellow, Levine has been working on a cycle of interrelated pieces for string quartet and subsets thereof, “Again not the same river,” investigating interactions between cyclical architectonics and evolving material that reflect the complex juxtaposition in our lives of recurrence and change. Although strikingly distinct from each other, the pieces share significant structural and behavioral traits. His music has been commissioned and performed worldwide by prominent new music soloists, ensembles, and conductors, with recordings released on the harmonia mundi and New Focus labels.  This performance is an excellent opportunity to hear an innovative composer’s newest work.

2019 David M. Lee Historical Lecture in Physics, Anton Zeilinger, "Quantum Information and Quantum Communication, Foundations and Prospects"

It is curious that the development of quantum physics — arguably the most successful description of nature ever — was accompanied by fundamental debates from the early days until today. Schrödinger’s cat, Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance” and his comment that “God does not play dice with the Universe” are deeply rooted in fundamental features of the theory: superposition, entanglement and randomness. The concept of Quantum Information encompasses these fundamental features. In the talk, Prof. Zeilinger will discuss some fundamental experiments. For example, in delayed-choice entanglement swapping, the decision whether two photons which share no common past are entangled or not can be made at the time when they already have been detected. An interesting and very visual workhorse are orbital angular momentum states of photons. They opened up the possibility for higher-dimensional quantum experiments. That way, entanglement has been confirmed for quantum numbers above 10.000 and between two more than 1… Gazette Classification: Lecture. Science.

Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep

Exhibitions-Current Glowing under black lights, California artist Lily Simonson’s luminescent paintings embody a synergy between art and science that reveals new ways of seeing and understanding life forms in the deep ocean. Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep presents six original mural-sized paintings that literally glow with luminescent pigments and together create an immersive visual experience in which light and color materialize out of a sea of darkness, giving form to a hidden alien universe. Through her extraordinary art, Simonson envelops us in this astonishing world, invites us to share in the excitement of exploration and discovery, and challenges our preconceptions of what it is to be alive. Simonson’s work is inspired by explorations of deep-ocean life made in collaboration with Harvard University professor Peter Girguis.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Organized by the Harvard Art Museums.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

White Supremacy and Christianity in the United States

Show on Harvard Gazette White Nationalism, Christian Nationalism, and White Supremacy in the US And Beyond: A Lunchtime Discussion Series Session 3: White Supremacy and Christianity in the United States Facilitator: Diane L. Moore, HDS White nationalism, Christian nationalism, and White supremacy are often represented as “extremist” views perpetrated by radical fringes of US society. In this series, we seek to challenge that view by exploring “mainstream” manifestations of these perspectives and what those representations suggest about how we might understand our current social and political polarization. All members of the HDS community are invited to participate in this luncheon series. All participants are asked to complete short readings and to come prepared to discuss them with others in attendance. Readings can be accessed here. Gazette Classification: Religion.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

The workshop is convened and moderated by Elisa Massimino, Former President of Human Rights First & Senior Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy.

Persistent Voices: Domestic Workers and Indigenous Households in Mexico City

Join Alberto Diaz-Cayeros, Stanford University, in discussion at a Comparative Democracy Seminar Series event. Candelaria Garay, Harvard Kennedy School, will moderate. Diaz-Cayeros will discuss a paper that presents the preliminary findings of an ongoing study of the persistence of indigenous identity and domestic workers in Mexico City. The paper provides evidence of a spatially concentrated pattern of employment for domestic workers in the municipality of Mexico City in the 19th century. The analysis confirms a long-term practice of ethnic labor specialization in home and caregiving activities. Women employees, most of them indigenous, came to represent almost half of the composition of rich households. Further, the analysis shows that indigenous inhabitants living today in downtown areas are located in close proximity to the indigenous palaces (Tecpan) of 16th century Mexico-Tenochtitlán.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

The Diary of Anne Frank

Adapted from "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl," "The Diary of Anne Frank" is based on the true story of a young Jewish girl who kept a diary of her time hiding from the Nazis in an attic of her father’s office during World War II.

Get to Know Your Chainsaw

Before using a chainsaw, it is best to understand all of its parts, built in safety features, maintenance requirements, and the forces in play once you rev its small but powerful engine. If you own a saw, bring it to class. If you don’t own a saw but intend to purchase one, wait until you’ve attended the class to learn which styles and features are best for your size and needs. Participants should bring safety goggles, gloves, and ear protection. Dress for the outdoors and bring a snack and beverage. This class is designed for beginners or those who have never taken a formal class on chainsaw safety. John will instruct on the way to handle a saw safely, how best to lessen fatigue so as to avoid accidents and injuries, and how to sharpen a saw. Participants will not practice felling trees.

Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep

Exhibitions-Current Glowing under black lights, California artist Lily Simonson’s luminescent paintings embody a synergy between art and science that reveals new ways of seeing and understanding life forms in the deep ocean. Lily Simonson: Painting the Deep presents six original mural-sized paintings that literally glow with luminescent pigments and together create an immersive visual experience in which light and color materialize out of a sea of darkness, giving form to a hidden alien universe. Through her extraordinary art, Simonson envelops us in this astonishing world, invites us to share in the excitement of exploration and discovery, and challenges our preconceptions of what it is to be alive. Simonson’s work is inspired by explorations of deep-ocean life made in collaboration with Harvard University professor Peter Girguis.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

LA PRIMERA CIRCUNNAVEGACIÓN DE LA TIERRA, LA PRIMERA GLOBALIZACIÓN DE LA HISTORIA

The Castilian ('Spanish') Magellan-Elcano expedition, which sailed from Seville (Spain) on August 10, 1519, and returned to Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Spain) on Sept. 6, 1522, was started by Portuguese navigator Fernão de Magalhães (Ferdinand Magellan) and completed by Spanish Basque navigator Juan Sebastián de Elcano. It was the first circumnavigation of the Globe and a heroic achievement involving high-risk adventures that the expedition crew confronted first under the leadership of Magellan and then, after the latter’s death in a battle with the natives of the Philippines, under the command of Juan Sebastián de Elcano. Spanish Navy Captain Ignacio Paz is at present the Commanding Officer of the Training Tall Ship “Juan Sebastián de Elcano”. His lecture will cover both the circumstances and course of the first circumnavigation and also the sailing ship: her history, the life and work onboard, the formation of the midshipmen and her role as Spanish Embassy.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

Willie Cole: Beauties

Willie Cole’s “Beauties” are haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, each named after a woman from the artist’s cultural and ancestral history. Cole has used irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined wall to wall with the Beauties. Standing silently — like sentinels, tombstones, shrouds, or windows — the prints will open a space for confronting anew the whole range of often contradictory energies running through them: resistance and oppression, beauty and violence, labor and forbearance.

The Age of Our Own

This controversial film by director Koreyoshi Kurahara is based on a story by Nobel Prize-winning author Kenzaburo Oe, adapted by Yoshio Shirasaka, a prolific writer who scripted masterpieces under every major Japanese production company (including Yasuzo Masumura's 1958 film "Giants and Toys" at Daiei studios). A Japanese college student attempting to study abroad in France to escape his daily troubles is met with endless frustration and ultimately forced to live an aimless life of disillusionment. Among Nikkatsu's most political films, "The Age of Our Own" implicitly reveals a complex reaction to the anti-Anpo struggle and its contexts. Gazette Classification: Film.
