Celebrating 50 Years of Sesame Street & Honoring Harvard's Contributions to It

Sesame Street, one of the most iconic and powerful experiments in educational media, owes much of its success to the 50-year collaboration between the Children’s Television Workshop (now Sesame Workshop) and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. This is an ongoing exhibition on view through Jan. 18, 2020. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Education. Organization/Sponsor: Gutman Library. Monday, November 11, 2019. Gutman Library - 1st Floor 6 Appian Way Cambridge.

We Are America

During the 2018-2019 school year, teacher Jessica Lander (EDM'15) and students in her Seminar on American Diversity strove to answer the question: What does it mean to be American? In trying to tie together large historical movements and individual histories they wrote and edited two books of personal stories "We Are America" and "We Are America Too." Their hope was to start a different type of conversation about identity. This summer, Lander and her students launched the national We Are America Project. This year they are working with 36 teachers and more than 1300 young people across the country to create a new definition of what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation. Come see the students work and stories at the Gutman Gallery from Nov. 1 to Dec. 16. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Gutman Gallery.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context. Come see how Harvard was changing in the early '30s, and investigate how it has changed since. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Education. Exhibitions.

Clay — Modeling African Design

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson. Also included are examples of Notgeld, emergency currency printed in Weimar Germany around 1920. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Art Museums.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging? "Crossing Lines, Constructing Home" investigates two parallel ideas: national, political, and cultural conceptions of boundaries and borders; and the evolving hybrid spaces, identities, languages, and beliefs created by the movement of peoples.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Exhibition: Unknown and Solitary Seas

Artist Dario Robleto’s exhibition examines the 19th-century origins of the pulse wave as a graphic expression of internal life. Robleto explores the profundity and confusion of this early moment, when ineffable emotional and sensory experiences first became visible as data. His multimedia installation, based on extensive archival research, reawakens the intimacy, beauty, and emotional complexity of these first waveforms drawn from and by the heart. Casting them in steel and brass, printing and retrieving them from new layers of soot, and converting them into video and engineered sound, Robleto encourages us to attend to them with resonant forms of empathy, to reflect upon the lives of the 19th-century subjects who bequeathed them to us — and ultimately to imagine more heartfelt ways of inheriting and interpreting historical data.

Early Christian Africa: Arts of Transformation

Christianity has important early roots in the Nile Valley and Ethiopia. Related arts often embody core local African values — an aesthetics that privileges moral value and simplicity over opulence, wealth, or power. This is an art of the people: limestone not marble, wool and linen rather than silk, bone instead of ivory, terracotta, wood, and copper in place of gold. Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Being There

No less enigmatic than the simpleton Chance played by Peter Sellers is the logic — or lack of same — that caused this wildly inappropriate movie to be selected as Reagan’s first post-recovery movie in the White House screening room after surviving Hinckley’s attempted assassination. Was it because Being There satirized Washington society and politics? Was it because Reagan’s peer Melvyn Douglas — something of a political ally during the long-ago 1940s — won an Oscar for best supporting actor? "Being There" is filled with things that Reagan might well have found disturbing. Still, the movie made something of an impression. In February 1983, at the start of Reagan’s third year in office, a letter to the business editor of the New York Times pointed out a statement by the president that was clearly inspired by Sellers’ character.

Post-colonial Settlement Strategy: Power, Negotiations, and Territorial Expansion

Settlement projects are sustained clusters of policies that allow states to strategically plan, implement and support the permanent transfer of nationals into a territory not under their sovereignty. Ehud Eiran explains why states launch settlement projects into occupied areas and introduces the international environment as an important enabling variable. By drawing comparisons between three such major projects–Israel in the West Bank and Gaza, Morocco in Western Sahara, and Indonesia in East-Timor–Ehud Eiran classifies post-colonial settlement projects as a distinct cluster of cases that warrant a different analytical approach to traditional colonial studies. Built on a careful synthesis of existing principles in international relations theory and empirical research, the book advances a clearly formulated theoretical position on the launch of post-colonial settlement projects. The result yields a number of fresh insights into the relationship between conflict, territory, norms, and negotiations. The bo… Gazette Classification: Education. Special Events.

Join the Harvard Museum of Natural History in celebrating this invaluable gift with a visit to The Rockefeller Beetles — a new exhibit that features hundreds of specimens from Rockefeller’s collection and recounts the story of a man whose childhood pursuit grew into a lifelong passion.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context.

In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging?

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Exhibition: Unknown and Solitary Seas

Artist Dario Robleto’s exhibition examines the 19th-century origins of the pulse wave as a graphic expression of internal life. Robleto explores the profundity and confusion of this early moment, when ineffable emotional and sensory experiences first became visible as data. His multimedia installation, based on extensive archival research, reawakens the intimacy, beauty, and emotional complexity of these first waveforms drawn from and by the heart. Casting them in steel and brass, printing and retrieving them from new layers of soot, and converting them into video and engineered sound, Robleto encourages us to attend to them with resonant forms of empathy, to reflect upon the lives of the 19th-century subjects who bequeathed them to us — and ultimately to imagine more heartfelt ways of inheriting and interpreting historical data.

Torture as a method of criminal prosecution: Democratization, Criminal Justice Reform, and the Mexican Drug War

A criminal trial is likely the most signicant interaction a citizen will ever have with the state; its conduct and adherence to norms of fairness bear directly on the quality of government, extent of democratic consolidation, and human rights. While theories of repression tend to focus on the political incentives to transgress against human rights, we examine a case in which the institutionalization of such violations follows an organizational logic rather than the political logic of regime survival or consolidation. We exploit a survey of the Mexican prison population and the implementation of reforms of the justice system to assess how reforms to criminal procedure reduce torture. We demonstrate that democratization produced a temporary decline in torture which then increased with the onset of the Drug War and militarization of security. Results show that democracy alone is insufficient to restrain torture unless it is accompanied by institutionalized protections. Gazette Classification: Lecture.

Crossroads: Comparative Immigration Regimes in Europe and the World

Europe is at the center of countervailing trends in the governance of global migration. On the one hand, many European countries are among the fastest aging societies in the world, highly dependent on immigration, and reliant on supranational arrangements to circulate and shift labor supply around the free mobility zone. On the other hand, Europe is also the epicenter of xenophobic Far Right populism which has compelled many countries to limit the entry of third country nationals, externalize their borders, and process asylum seekers offshore. How do these trends define the nature of immigration governance across European states? And how is this governance contextualized in the broader, global landscape of immigration regimes?

We Are America

During the 2018-2019 school year, teacher Jessica Lander (EDM'15) and students in her Seminar on American Diversity strove to answer the question: What does it mean to be American? In trying to tie together large historical movements and individual histories they wrote and edited two books of personal stories "We Are America" and "We Are America Too." Their hope was to start a different type of conversation about identity. This summer, Lander and her students launched the national We Are America Project. This year they are working with 36 teachers and more than 1300 young people across the country to create a new definition of what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson. Also included are examples of Notgeld, emergency currency printed in Weimar Germany around 1920. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Art Museums.

Fukushima and the Law

Although in September 2019 the Tokyo District Court cleared three former TEPCO executives of criminal charges, the legal fallout from the Fukushima Dai’ichi nuclear accident is colossal. With over 85 billion dollars of damages awarded to 2.9 million claimants (as of 18 October), it marks the largest liability case in global legal history. In addition to a tsunami of suits brought by evacuees and affected companies in civil courts, hundreds of administrative injunctions were sought against other reactors across Japan. Transnationally, arbitrators from Tokyo to New York hear cases ranging from multi-million dollar trade disputes over cancelled uranium contracts to a pending 5.1 billion dollar investment arbitration over profits lost due to the German nuclear phaseout. In contrast to the fundamental regulatory reforms and ambitious procedural solutions adopted in Japan, legislative changes have been limited elsewhere and the adoption of new, binding and enforceable international nuclear law remains strikingly… Gazette Classification: Law.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Exhibition: Unknown and Solitary Seas

Artist Dario Robleto’s exhibition examines the 19th-century origins of the pulse wave as a graphic expression of internal life. Robleto explores the profundity and confusion of this early moment, when ineffable emotional and sensory experiences first became visible as data. His multimedia installation, based on extensive archival research, reawakens the intimacy, beauty, and emotional complexity of these first waveforms drawn from and by the heart. Casting them in steel and brass, printing and retrieving them from new layers of soot, and converting them into video and engineered sound, Robleto encourages us to attend to them with resonant forms of empathy, to reflect upon the lives of the 19th-century subjects who bequeathed them to us — and ultimately to imagine more heartfelt ways of inheriting and interpreting historical data.

Paleovirology: Ghosts and Gifts of Ancient Viruses

Human genomes are ancient battlegrounds of arms races waged between viruses and their hosts for millions of years. Just as historians reconstruct battlefields to better understand historical battles, evolutionary biologists and virologists can reconstruct how ancient viruses affected their hosts by analyzing their “fossil” remains in our genomes. Harmit Malik will discuss what the study of these viruses can tell us about old and new viral infections. Gazette Classification: Lecture.

Eliot Noyes: A pioneer of design and architecture in the age of American Modernism

Eliot Noyes was a remarkable figure in 20th-century design. An architect who began his career in the office of Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, he went on to become the first Director of the Industrial Design department at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Then, from the late 1950s until 1977, he was Consulting Director of Design for IBM, Mobil Oil, Westinghouse and Cummins Engine Company, and was responsible for bringing about a change in the way that these corporations, and others that followed, were to think about design and its impact on business. He enlisted pioneering designers to help bring about innovative architectural, graphic, and industrial design. This speech will trace the life of this unique architect and designer, who devoted a great deal of his career to encouraging large American businesses to respect and develop policies that were rich in cultural expression.

Working through architecture and its refusal, their activist spatial office is grounded in research and situating it in public forms through exhibiting, writing, performing, and protesting. This work includes "Republic of Body" a public performance that took place in Amman in 2016, "Cosmo-Clinical Interiors of Beirut" which looks into contemporary constructions of virginity, and lastly, the ongoing project "Passport" which analyzes the ways gendered notions of body and bodily practices incur into legal/political/social conditions of non-belonging, conflict, and precarity.

We Are America

During the 2018-2019 school year, teacher Jessica Lander (EDM'15) and students in her Seminar on American Diversity strove to answer the question: What does it mean to be American? In trying to tie together large historical movements and individual histories they wrote and edited two books of personal stories "We Are America" and "We Are America Too." Their hope was to start a different type of conversation about identity. This summer, Lander and her students launched the national We Are America Project. This year they are working with 36 teachers and more than 1300 young people across the country to create a new definition of what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation.

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding.

DATA SCIENCE ECOSYSTEMS WITH AI TO IMPROVE SOCIAL RESEARCH

More and more organizations are embracing data science, but the success ratios of data science projects have been low — at the 30 percent level for years per surveys conducted by Gartner and others. To attack this problem and help mitigating risks of other associated issues such as the high turnover ratio of data scientists, an ecosystem approach with AI is emerging. In this talk, Alex Liu as one of the pioneers and a lead developer of this approach will start from defining the data science ecosystem approach and discuss the needs for expert guided AI assistance to social research.

Exhibition: Unknown and Solitary Seas

Artist Dario Robleto’s exhibition examines the 19th-century origins of the pulse wave as a graphic expression of internal life. Robleto explores the profundity and confusion of this early moment, when ineffable emotional and sensory experiences first became visible as data. His multimedia installation, based on extensive archival research, reawakens the intimacy, beauty, and emotional complexity of these first waveforms drawn from and by the heart. Casting them in steel and brass, printing and retrieving them from new layers of soot, and converting them into video and engineered sound, Robleto encourages us to attend to them with resonant forms of empathy, to reflect upon the lives of the 19th-century subjects who bequeathed them to us — and ultimately to imagine more heartfelt ways of inheriting and interpreting historical data.

Los aniversarios de Antonio Machado, según Tomás Segovia: Relecturas de la poesía del exilio republicano “desde otra orilla”

Antonio Machado died in exile in 1939, shortly before the end of the Spanish Civil War. The poet immediately became an emblematic figure not only for Republican exiles, but also for important Francoist intellectuals. In 1979, in a reading organized by the Ateneo Español of Mexico to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the poet’s death, the exiled writer Tomás Segovia took the evocation of Machado's poetry as an opportunity to reflect on its institutionalization and criticize “the commonplaces of Hispanism and Hispanicity, of solemnity and academicism.” Segovia’s own evocations and reflections were significantly titled “Antonio Machado, from another shore.” Now, as we celebrate the 80th anniversary of the end of the Spanish Civil War, it seems timely to reexamine “from another shore” the conflicting relationship between poetic memory and national literary history.

What to Send Up When it Goes Down

"What to Send Up When It Goes Down" is a community ritual created in response to the deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. As lines between characters and actors, observers and observed blur, a dizzying series of vignettes build to a climactic moment where performance and reality collide. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, movement, and audience participation to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing, and healing.

Site and Sight: Chinese Pagoda

Organized by Harvard CAMLAb, “Site and Sight: Chinese Pagoda” brings together an international community of professors, researchers, and graduate students to investigate discrete instantiations of the Chinese stupa-pagoda, or ta 塔 across a diversity of geographies and media. A monument that marks the absence of the Buddha Sakyamuni in our world, the pagoda became a pervasive fixture throughout China’s architectural and artistic landscapes, its ubiquity belying the site-specific programming of the architectural work in context. “Site and Sight” seeks to address this tension between the universal and the local, exploring the monument type and its siting through a series of case studies. Understanding the pagoda as a dynamic ground for the construction of meaning, conference presentations will examine questions related to place making and historic memory, multiculturalism in urban centers, and transmateriality.

We Are America

During the 2018-2019 school year, teacher Jessica Lander (EDM'15) and students in her Seminar on American Diversity strove to answer the question: What does it mean to be American? In trying to tie together large historical movements and individual histories they wrote and edited two books of personal stories "We Are America" and "We Are America Too." Their hope was to start a different type of conversation about identity. This summer, Lander and her students launched the national We Are America Project. This year they are working with 36 teachers and more than 1300 young people across the country to create a new definition of what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Exhibition: Unknown and Solitary Seas

Artist Dario Robleto’s exhibition examines the 19th-century origins of the pulse wave as a graphic expression of internal life. Robleto explores the profundity and confusion of this early moment, when ineffable emotional and sensory experiences first became visible as data. His multimedia installation, based on extensive archival research, reawakens the intimacy, beauty, and emotional complexity of these first waveforms drawn from and by the heart. Casting them in steel and brass, printing and retrieving them from new layers of soot, and converting them into video and engineered sound, Robleto encourages us to attend to them with resonant forms of empathy, to reflect upon the lives of the 19th-century subjects who bequeathed them to us — and ultimately to imagine more heartfelt ways of inheriting and interpreting historical data.

IACS Seminar: "The Universe in a Stream: Challenges and Progress of the ALeRCE Broker"

To effectively connect the astronomical follow up infrastructure with a new generation of large etendue survey telescopes, such as ZTF or LSST, there is a need for a new type of instrument: the astronomical alert brokers.

Using Clinical Informatics to Optimize Value-Based Care in the Community

As health care spending continues its unsustainable rise, there is growing pressure to incentivize increased quality and decreased costs. Value-based care models, which focus on the quality of care instead of the quantity of services, could address both of these issues. Shifting to a value-based approach, however, requires changes across the health care ecosystem — in financing and population health management as well as for payers and providers.

Under the Sand

Still Ozon’s finest film, "Under the Sand" channels the spirit of Virginia Woolf to enter fully into the mind-space of a woman locked in a slow spiral of grief, mourning her husband whose unexplained disappearance she still does not believe. Charlotte Rampling uses the subtlest gestures to achingly capture the ritualistic denial of death later described so poignantly by Joan Didion, with a glazed far-away look and muted anguish that her friends and family try to ignore and, inevitably, to cure. "Under the Sand" is a masterful psychological study of grief but also an extraordinary tone poem. Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

What to Send Up When it Goes Down

"What to Send Up When It Goes Down" is a community ritual created in response to the deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. As lines between characters and actors, observers and observed blur, a dizzying series of vignettes build to a climactic moment where performance and reality collide. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, movement, and audience participation to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing, and healing.

Frantz

"Ozon"’s sensitive adaptation of Maurice Rostand’s pacifist play "The Man I Killed" reveals the rarely acknowledged political voice of his cinema, offering a poignant meditation on war and regret just as Europe, and the US, were threatened by rising nativist and nationalist urges that today feel uncannily familiar. Yet "Ozon "also injects a subtle psychosexual charge and a melancholy into his retelling of the story of a French WW1 veteran trying to find peace with his actions as a soldier while hinting at a repressed double identity.

We Are America

During the 2018-2019 school year, teacher Jessica Lander (EDM'15) and students in her Seminar on American Diversity strove to answer the question: What does it mean to be American? In trying to tie together large historical movements and individual histories they wrote and edited two books of personal stories "We Are America" and "We Are America Too." Their hope was to start a different type of conversation about identity. This summer, Lander and her students launched the national We Are America Project. This year they are working with 36 teachers and more than 1300 young people across the country to create a new definition of what it means to be American — and to spark a new national conversation about American identity today led by the next generation.

How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging?

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Exhibition: Unknown and Solitary Seas

Artist Dario Robleto’s exhibition examines the 19th-century origins of the pulse wave as a graphic expression of internal life. Robleto explores the profundity and confusion of this early moment, when ineffable emotional and sensory experiences first became visible as data. His multimedia installation, based on extensive archival research, reawakens the intimacy, beauty, and emotional complexity of these first waveforms drawn from and by the heart. Casting them in steel and brass, printing and retrieving them from new layers of soot, and converting them into video and engineered sound, Robleto encourages us to attend to them with resonant forms of empathy, to reflect upon the lives of the 19th-century subjects who bequeathed them to us — and ultimately to imagine more heartfelt ways of inheriting and interpreting historical data.

Early Christian Africa: Arts of Transformation

Christianity has important early roots in the Nile Valley and Ethiopia. Related arts often embody core local African values — an aesthetics that privileges moral value and simplicity over opulence, wealth, or power. This is an art of the people: limestone not marble, wool and linen rather than silk, bone instead of ivory, terracotta, wood, and copper in place of gold. Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Impolex

Despite its postwar backdrop and soundtrack, Alex Ross Perry’s first feature appears relatively indifferent to nostalgia or any conspicuous artistry. Compelling despite — or perhaps because of — its funny, flat delivery, "Impolex" owes much of its circular inspiration to Thomas Pynchon’s notoriously sprawling novel Gravity’s Rainbow. The film follows World War II soldier Tyrone Slothrop through a forested, dreamlike purgatorial zone — which could be any number of metaphysical spaces or none at all — as he listlessly searches for two lost V-2 rockets. Tyrone’s ambiguous mission recalls Beckett as much as Carroll as it is periodically interrupted by cryptic encounters with apparitions, old friends, informants, a girlfriend and a talking octopus. His bored incoherency and sluggish apprehension of events resembles a state drug-induced or sleep-deprived. This amnesiac, dissociative fugue forces the audience to be just as lost, confused, uncomfortable, amused or philosophical. With none of the usual physical or cin… Gazette Classification: Film.

What to Send Up When it Goes Down

"What to Send Up When It Goes Down" is a community ritual created in response to the deaths of Black people as a result of racialized violence. As lines between characters and actors, observers and observed blur, a dizzying series of vignettes build to a climactic moment where performance and reality collide. Meant to disrupt the pervasiveness of anti-blackness and acknowledge the resilience of Black people throughout history, this theatrical work uses parody, song, movement, and audience participation to create a space for catharsis, reflection, cleansing, and healing.

The Family Jewels

I’ve spent almost a decade grappling with the nuclear blast of inspiration I got from a “Late Jerry” retrospective at Anthology Film Archives in the autumn of 2009. I was zeroing in on how to crack my second film, "The Color Wheel," and the overt antagonism I perceived on the part of Jerry casting himself in, for this particular film, seven different roles — as well as writing, directing and producing the film — felt like the most logical and yet baffling way to grapple with whatever ego, neurosis and identity issues must have been plaguing him at the time. To shove that much of yourself down the audience’s throat felt like catharsis of the highest order, and this coalesced with my intentions of writing, directing, producing, editing and acting in "The Color Wheel." Unlike Jerry, it wasn’t for me, and it was an experiment I never repeated. His mastery knew no bounds, and if anybody ever doubts this, I recommend trying to juggle half as many balls on a film set as he did, time and time again. – ARP. Gazette Classification: Film.
