caribBEING Prospect Park: Art Installation: Gallery


Date: June 20, 2019

Caribbean-American artists Devin Osorio and Tania L. Balan-Gaubert's Gallery transforms the Lefferts Historic House front porch into a Caribbean veranda with a multimedia installation featuring Osorio's tropical-patterned Dracaena Cane Coil Curtain, comprised of hanging coiled balls, and Balan-Gaubert's salvaged furniture sculptures, Somewhere in the Unfinished. Says Osorio: "I am referencing the plants and types of objects that my grandmother decorated her own patio at her home in the Dominican Republic. This was my favorite place to be when I visited, and I want to bring that same joy and sense of island summer ease to Lefferts Historic House." Says Balan-Gaubert: "Chairs placed in front of homes in a way that suggests continued use are evocative of the lives inside who come outdoors to enjoy the weather or be in the company of others, and can be visual representations of a city… Stoop life… porch sitting… block parties and barbecues signal the aesthetics of community."

Talk with Ariel Goldberg: Performing Networks: Slideshows, Questionnaires, and Directories

How did lesbian-identified photographers in the 1980s build community in real time? Often claiming figures like Alice Austen as inspiration, photographers such as Joan E. Biren and Tia Cross created narratives about becoming a photographer in order to claim legacies from histories of omission.

Ariel Goldberg's publications include The Estrangement Principle (Nightboat Books, 2016) and The Photographer (Roof Books, 2015). Goldberg’s research, writing and performance work has been supported by the New York Public Library, the Franklin Furnace Fund, SOMA in Mexico City, and Smith College. From 2014-2017, they organized readings at The Poetry Project. Goldberg teaches writing and from 2014-2017, they organized readings at The Poetry Project. They are the 2018-9 Zuckerman Fellow, Curator of Community Engagement at the Jewish History Museum in Tucson, AZ. Goldberg’s art writing has appeared in e-flux, Artforum, and Art in America. They are currently working on two books: Heavy Equipment, essays on the practices of LGBTQ photographers in the 1970s-90s, and A Century, a novel based on the partnership of art critic Elizabeth McCausland and photographer Berenice Abbott.

Date: July 3, 2019

This is acoustic instrumental meet-up focuses on tunes in the Irish, English, New England Old Time, French Canadian, American Southern, and Scandinavian traditions. Tunes are those that are typically suitable for contra dancing or other traditional fiddle tunes.

This group is intended to provide a musical home for folks interested in playing tunes with other musicians, learning to play by ear and overall increasing their own musical skill. It’s fun and welcoming to all ages and levels of playing. While we won’t play from sheet music, you can certainly use this as a reference on your own!

What do you mean by slow jam? All acoustic instruments (e.g., fiddle, mandolin, guitar, cello, etc.) are welcome and the typical format is that we sit in a circle (or circle-ish, depending on the space) and take turns suggesting/leading a song. The songs will typically follow the AABB format (two “A” parts followed by two “B” parts) and we will simply play it over many repeats and if you know it, great, but if you don’t, you try to figure it out as we go along, maybe picking up a few notes here and there. We’ll play tunes at a slow to moderate speed so that they are accessible to a variety of levels.

It’s fun and can be challenging, but is a great way to improve your playing. You don’t have to be a great player, play in tune, or know the songs to give it a shot. If you want to suggest a song, you should either know the song well enough to play it on repeat or we can see if anyone else does!

Threads: Flax to Linen, Field to Fabric


Date: July 14, 2019

"Threads" examines the history of linen production from field to fabric. Visitors can examine the Conference House collection of antique tools of the trade such as flax break, hackle, carder, and spinning wheel. The exhibit includes dried flax plant samples, yarn, and linens.

Linen, a natural textile used and valued by humans for thousands of years for its useful properties, was the fabric of choice in colonial America. Linen fabric is made from the cellulose fibers that grow inside of the stalks of the flax plant. Linum usitatissimum is one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history.

Please note: Although the Conference House closed for the winter months on December 21, the Threads exhibit will accept visitors by appointment during the wintertime. The Conference House's official Spring re-opening date is April 5, 2019.

Start time: 1:00 pm

End time: 4:00 pm
