Ruth Reichl will be in conversation with Francis Lam to celebrate her new memoir, Save Me the Plums.  

When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America’s oldest epicurean magazine, she declined. She was a writer, not a manager, and had no inclination to be anyone’s boss. Yet Reichl had been reading Gourmet since she was eight; it had inspired her career. How could she say no?

This is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world and worrying about losing her soul. It is the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, a time when the rise of the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat. Readers will meet legendary chefs like David Chang and Eric Ripert, idiosyncratic writers like David Foster Wallace, and a colorful group of editors and art directors who, under Reichl’s leadership, transformed stately Gourmet into a cutting-edge publication. This was the golden age of print media—the last spendthrift gasp before the Internet turned the magazine world upside down.

Complete with recipes, Save Me the Plums is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be.

A panel discussion with Mountain Lake Symposium founders and organizers, artist Ray Kass, art critic Donald Kuspit and Howard Risatti to discuss The Mountain Lake Symposium and Workshop: Arists in Locale.

Contemporary art, interdisciplinary research, traditional Appalachian culture, and advanced technology converge in The Mountain Lake Symposium and Workshop: Artists in Locale.Published to coincide with the exhibition of the same name, the book showcases the collaborative creative works that emerged from the Mountain Lake Symposium, a decade-long theoretical art criticism conference founded by artist Ray Kass in 1980 and co-organized with art critic Donald B. Kuspit and Howard Risatti. The Mountain Lake Workshop integrated the arts and sciences into a dynamic experimental creative process that expanded the traditional boundaries of visual art. Artists who have created works at the Mountain Lake Workshop include John Cage, Marie Cosindas, Merce Cunningham, James De La Vega, Howard Finster, Lynn Hull, Jessie and Sally Mann with Liz Liguori, Jackie Matisse, Jiro Okura, M. C. Richards, Dorothea Rockburne, Wayne Thiebaud, Cy Twombly, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, and many others.

This book’s essays and extensive photographs serve as a critical reflection of the Mountain Lake Symposium’s history and impact, and of the ongoing collaborative Mountain Lake Workshops that continue to demonstrate the relevance of the arts across various disciplines.

1133 Broadway (25th - 26th Streets), New York City

Pyeng Threadgill will be celebrating the vinyl release of "Head Full Of Hair, Heart Full Of Song" performing selections from this album, which explores natural hair, ancestry and adornment as sources of power for Black women and women of color, as well as offering selections from her previous album "Portholes to A Love & Other Short Stories" inspired by short stories by world renowned authors such as Jamaica Kincaid, Isabelle Allende and Jhumpa Lahiri.

Joining her will be guitarist Andy Bianco and drummer Evan Pazner.

"I use music to create spaces that tell stories. Sometimes the music is performed in a traditional music setting but lately I have been drawn to less traditional music spaces because of how they help people to reimagine music. I want for people remember to fully connect to themselves through music by listening with their entire bodies and all their senses just the way one does when visiting someone's home. This is what New Porch Music inspires me to look into. Our individual and collective stories. My hope is that before, during and afterwards you will consider the deeper ways in which music, conversation and even silence impact and connect us all" (Pyeng Threadgill).

THE BAND

Marco Cappelli has led an extraordinary artistic path, first becoming familiar with rigorous written music, then with free improvisation languages. The diversity of Marco’s performances is due to a fascinating array of collaborations (Avi Avital, Anthony Coleman, Michel Godard, Butch Morris, Franco Piersanti, Jim Pugliese, Enrico Rava, Marc Ribot, Elliott Sharp and many more) in jazz and avant-garde music festivals both as a soloist and in ensemble settings. Marco Cappelli currently lives in New York, where he is constantly involved with the contemporary and avant-garde music scenes.

Active since the early '80s, bassist Ken Filiano has since contributed to dozens of albums, most of them pertaining to creative jazz -- from post-bop to free improvisation. An educator, the bassist has taught at the University of New Mexico (Albuquerque), New York State University (Buffalo), UCLA, and Rutgers University. In 2002 Filiano finally released his first solo album, titled Subvenire. The November 2010 release "Dreams from a Clown Car" marked the recording debut of Filiano’s Quantum Entanglements quartet, featuring saxophonists Tony Malaby and Michaël Attias and drummer Michael T.A. Thompson.

 

Drummer, percussionist, and arranger Satoshi Takeishi is a native of Mito, Japan. He studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While at Berklee he developed an interest in the music of South America and went to live in Colombia following the invitation of a friend. He continues to explore multi-cultural, electronics and improvisational music with local musicians and composers in New York.


Clarinetist/saxophonist Oscar Noriega, multi-instrumentalist and composer, lives in Brooklyn since 1992. He has worked with Lee Konitz, Anthony Braxton, Gerry Hemingway, Dewey Redman and Paul Motion. He is currently performing with Tim Berne’s Snakeoil, Endangered Blood (Chris Speed, Jim Black, Trevor Dunn) and colead with Jacob Garchek, the Mexico-inspired Banda De Los Muertos.

Shoko Nagai is a composer, multi keyboardist and electronic musician. Born in Japan, she studied classical and jazz music at Berklee School of Music in Boston, developing a very original approach to intense focus and virtuoso sound. Since moving to New York in 1999 she has collaborated with John Zorn, Ikue Mori, Marc Ribot, Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto), Butch Morris, Elliot Sharp and many others. She has toured extensively, playing in Sweden, Italy, Austria, France, Switzerland, Holland,  Japan, Israel, Brazil and USA.
