6 p.m. until 8 p.m. MacArthur x BGC: What is Research? Research may well be the key word in our contemporary knowledge culture, with global investment in research across all industries estimated at $1 trillion, and its importance acknowledged by governments, industry, and academia around the world. Yet, the idea of research, the practice of research, and the social life of research is not a subject of reflection. Of the 164 million items in the catalogue of the Library of Congress, only 43 fall into the category “Research—History.” To begin the task of understanding research, Bard Graduate Center has gathered a group of artists, scientists, and humanists—all MacArthur “Genius” Award winners—for three evenings of discussion moderated by Dean Peter Miller, himself a MacArthur Fellow. These conversations launch a project on research that will culminate in an exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in fall 2023. 38 West 86th Street (between CPW & Columbus), Lecture Hall. FREE.

6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. Drawing Connections Join us for a special evening of curators in conversation and an artist-led participatory drawing experience, inspired by works on paper featured in the exhibition Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B.

7 p.m. 112th: Benedetta Zavatta & Nadia Urbinati Join us as we celebrate the release of Benedetta Zavatta’s Individuality & Beyond. She will be joined in conversation by Nadia Urbinati. Through close-reading, Zavatta casts a new light on the ways in which Emerson’s work informed Nietzsche’s defining ideas of self-creation, the relation between fate and free will, overcoming morality of customs and achieving moral autonomy, and the “transvaluation” of such values as compassion and altruism. Ultimately, Zavatta clarifies the surprising contributions that Emerson made to 20th century European philosophy. She provides a fresh portrait of Emerson as an American thinker long stereotyped as a naiive idealist disinterested in the social issues of his day. Seen through the eyes of Nietzsche, his acute interpreter, Emerson becomes an incisive cultural critic, whose contributions underpin contemporary philosophy. Book Culture, 536 WEST 112TH ST. FREE.

7 p.m. 112th: Maya Popa with Timothy Donnelly Join us to celebrate the recent release of American Faith by Maya C. Popa. Timothy Donnelly will join in conversation. The ultimate subject of Popa’s stunning debut collection is violence. American Faith begins with its manifestation in our country: a destructive administration, a history of cruelty and extermination, and a love of firearms. The violence naturally extends to the personal. What for some is routine can feel like an assault: a TSA agent wipes down a bra tucked in a traveler’s suitcase, adding, “prettiest terrorist I’ve seen all day.” Tentatively, the title poem casts light on the unrevealed future, a solution that includes faith: “the days, impatient, fresh beasts, appeal to me— You are here. You must believe in something.” Book Culture, 536 WEST 112TH ST. FREE.
