7:00pm Opening Reception for Chad Stayrook: The Loneliest Voyages BRIC

Chad Stayrook assumes the role of research scientist and explorer to create a world as believable as it is strange. The Loneliest Voyages is an installation and series of drawings based on the ten space probes that have traveled furthest from Earth. Stayrook personifies the hopes and desires of an adventurer onto these probes, evoking a better understanding of the perilous one-way journey these voyagers take into the unknown universe. The central sculpture made from everyday materials—metal studs, fishnet, and an exercise ball—is an abstract representation of space-time and the effect of gravity’s push and pull as pertains to objects of great mass. And while these space objects are machines, they all carry a bit of humanity and the desire to answer grand questions. Several of these probes continue their path ever further into the farthest reaches and send back occasional pings to remind us where they are. Others have sacrificed or will sacrifice themselves in the hopes of learning more about the asteroids, planets, and moons that inhabit our solar system and beyond.

12:00pm E.V. Day: Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Opening Day Children's Museum of the Arts

Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) is pleased to announce E. V. Day: Breaking the Glass Ceiling, a gravity-defying exhibition that encourages viewers to aim high and break through their own invisible barriers, on view from May 16—October 27, 2019.

Known for her gravity-defying suspension sculptures that explore themes of science fiction, space, gender, and humor, E. V. Day illuminates contradictions in gender roles and stretches the confines of social stereotypes. In her new site-specific installation in the central Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery, E. V. Day will use turnbuckles, monofilament, and angle iron to build multiple suspended trajectories in the ceiling, using the columns and walls as mounting points. Day will employ chains, brass rods, elastic cords, and hardware to build tension, highlight resistance, and imply velocity. The ceiling installation will be complemented by shattered glass images displayed around the perimeter of the gallery referencing cosmic aspirations — the strong desire to achieve something that might feel just outside of one’s reach.

Dating from the 1980s, the glass ceiling is an unacknowledged – and ultimately illegal – barrier to advancement, primarily for women and people of color. Day sees the glass ceiling as a symptom of a broader problem — the collective subjugation of nature and our planet. With her installation, Day creates a conversation about the invisible barriers that prevent us from breaking through the glass ceiling and onward into the cosmos.

E. V. Day is a New York-based artist whose work explores themes of feminism and humor while employing gravity-defying suspension techniques. By manipulating iconic imagery from popular culture, Day re-animates the recognizable into new forms that illuminate contradictions in gender roles and stretch the confines of social stereotypes Recently awarded the prestigious Rome Prize for Visual Arts by the American Academy in Rome, Day worked for a year in the Eternal City where she continued a twenty-year practice of creating sculptures that interact with, and respond to grand architectural spaces. Day received her MFA in Sculpture from Yale University School of Art.

Queens is the most diverse county in the United States with nearly half of its 2.3 million residents being born abroad, making its neighborhoods home to families that hail from over 120 countries and speak over 135 languages. On Sunday, May 19th visitors will enjoy learning more about the sacred sites that highlight Flushing’s religious diversity.

Flushing is the site of North America’s 1st proclamation of religious freedom: the Flushing Remonstrance of 1657. As well as, the oldest extant house of worship in New York State: the Quaker Meeting House 1694. The area is now the site of many new churches, temples and mosques due to both a surge of contemporary immigrants and availability of sizable plots of lands in once-elite residential areas. We’ll discuss the ecological and economic problems engendered by the new churches as well as the uncertain status of historic religious institutions.

The first stop on our tour will be the Quaker Meeting House (built in 1694), at noon. The site is just a ten-minute walk from the Main St. stop of the #7 train and LIRR or a short walk from the Main St./Northern Blvd stop of the Q19, 66, 65, 25, 20A, 20B buses.
We’ll end the tour by 2:30 pm at the St. Michael’s Roman Catholic church.

We will also pass by a number of remarkable new and older houses of worship from tiny storefront churches to the elaborate Korean Buddhist temple, Masjid Abu Bakr Mosque, Mormon church, Sikh Temple and Temple (Jewish) Gates of Prayer. The tour will be lead by urban geographer Jack Eichenbaum, Ph.D. – the appointed Queens Borough Historian. His main focus is to promote Queens’ history-related attractions and changing cultures. His academic career encompasses quantitative and theoretical research on migration, ethnicity, urban growth and neighborhood change. He has an extraordinary knowledge of the New York City geography, which he teaches at the City University of New York.

10:00am The Path to Deep Emissions Reductions in NYC's Buildings New York City Bar Association

New York City has set ambitious goals to reduce our City’s greenhouse gas emissions 80% by the year 2050 (“80x50”) in order to help stave off the most devastating impacts of climate change. To accomplish this, deep emissions cuts will be needed across every sector of the City, including from buildings, which account for two-thirds of all greenhouse gas emissions generated in New York City. This program will celebrate and build upon the impressive work that has been accomplished to develop consensus around the New York City Council’s Intro. 1253-C, a first-of-its-kind piece of legislation passed as part of New York City’s Climate Mobilization Act that will require New York City buildings over 25,000 square feet to meet strict emissions limits beginning in 2024. The process to reach consensus around how, when and to what extent emissions should be reduced required collaboration among many different stakeholders with concerns on various issues including emissions reduction impact, cost, timeline, and housing affordability. Significant challenges and opportunities to implement and further expand emissions reductions remain.

The first half of the program will explore those previous consensus-building efforts and issues that were left unresolved in the mandate legislation. It will then look forward at the significant work that remains to implement the energy retrofits that will be needed to achieve the emissions reductions required by Intro. 1253-C. In particular, panelists and conference participants will look at market-based mechanisms for financing these retrofits (including PACE financing, also passed as part of the Climate Mobilization Act) and at potential ways to achieve broader emissions reductions without threatening housing affordability. Finally, conference participants will have the opportunity to join breakout groups for a facilitated discussion to explore potential opportunities to implement the retrofits at a wide scale. The facilitated conversations will take place under the guidance of Tim Mealey of the Meridian Institute.

6:30pm India Decides: Making Sense of the 2019 General Election Asia Society

In 2014, Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power on the back of an electoral wave — the first single-party majority in 30 years. His appeal to a particular form of nationalism and promises of governance and economic reforms brought him and his party enormous popularity. Yet the past year has dealt the BJP several setbacks in both politics and policy, indicating potential electoral vulnerability this time. Whether or not opposition parties will unite effectively is an open question, and the impact of increased tensions with Pakistan on public opinion is yet to be determined. The stakes are high, and results will be announced on May 23rd.

Join Asia Society, in collaboration with Hunter College’s Department of Political Science, for a discussion on the election results, and their implications for India, its economic and foreign policies, and the future of its democratic institutions.
