Virtual Art Sandwiched-in: Curator talk “Pier Paolo Pasolini: Subversive Prophet” @ Neuberger Museum of Art
Jun 5 @ 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM
Virtual Art Sandwiched-in: Curator talk "Pier Paolo Pasolini: Subversive Prophet" @ Neuberger Museum of Art |  |  |

Enjoy lunch while listening to Patrice Giasson, Alex Gordon Curator of Art of the Americas, speak about a selection of works in Pier Paolo Pasolini: Subversive Prophet. Pier Paolo Pasolini (Italian, 1922–1975), was one of 20th century Europe’s leading intellectuals, known for his prolific work as a poet, writer, and film director. Pasolini railed against government corruption, materialism, consumerism, and political and social repression. A blunt and controversial figure, he often faced harsh rebuke. “To me, Pasolini was a subversive prophet, a civic poet, a barometer,” says Giasson. “He could talk about everything, including about the ways we behave, our sexuality, and our political inclinations. With Pasolini, nothing was off the table. He also understood and railed against the way Italy and the rest of the Western world were heading – into a uniform, universal, standardized society – even before the idea of globalization took hold. My hope is that through this exhibition, visitors will connect with the voice of a true humanist, who dedicated his life to making this world a better place in which to live.”

Neuberger Museum’s two-part exhibition, which opens with an exploration of Pasolini’s reception in the Americas (Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and the United States). The second part of the exhibition is devoted to Pasolini’s powerful creativity and features his poetry, novels, paintings, drawings, and films. Eleven costumes for Pasolini’s theatrical ventures, designed in Rome by Danilo Donati for Farani, including the one used by Pasolini in The Canterbury Tales, also are showcased.

Our Pier Paolo Pasolini: Subversive Prophet exhibition includes an introduction to the artist’s most important films and a selection of original film costumes designed in Italy by the internationally-acclaimed costume house Farani. Try to spot the costumes as you stream Pasolini’s films on YouTube or Amazon Prime. (OF NOTE: In March, The New Yorker recommended streaming “Love Meetings,” a documentary about Pasolini’s travels through Italy to interview a variety of people about their views on the topics of sex, prostitution, homosexuality and marital and non-marital relationships. (1965, Italian with English subtitles, 1h 32 min). Stream on Amazon and YouTube.

Justice Unplugged – Meet Author Luis Quiros – on Zoom @ Mamaroneck Public Library
Jun 18 @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Justice Unplugged - Meet Author Luis Quiros - on Zoom @ Mamaroneck Public Library |  |  |

“Justice Unplugged is written impatiently from the margins, unearthing our endless narratives – pulling the plug on justice as it has come to be defined – and reclaiming its meaning. Embedded into every fabric of society, taking some of our own to fight against us, the Non-Others use our language, knowledge, safety and even mother nature against our survival. For these reasons, I could never be a bystander-Others had to know history of resistance and thriving spirit, and come together amid the chaos. Justice Unplugged incites action through its interdisciplinary analysis and its application of bridging street smarts to scholarship.” – Luis Quiros

Luis Quiros, is also a community organizer, activist, and educator. Quiros pursues justice aimed at dismantling that which promotes solutions that inflict pain and trauma on Others – against models that departmentalized justice when it requires hybridity and holistic frameworks. Discourse on these topics is also captured on talk radio podcasts indexed on justice unplugged.

Mr. Quiros is also the author of An Other’s Mind (2011).
