Designed as a book-on-the-wall, Paris Blues Revisited presents fine reproductions of collages by Romare Bearden, writing by Albert Murray and photographs by Sam Shaw. Following the Shaw-produced film Paris Blues, these three men decided to improvise their own Paris Blues – a collaborative picture-and-writing book celebrating Paris as well as Duke Ellington, co-composer (with Billy Strayhorn) of the movie's soundtrack and Louis Armstrong, one of that movie's stars. That book was never completed. Here, for the first time, finished pages, some of them unmistakable masterworks, as well as works-in-progress make clear the power of jazz to inspire collaborations of long-lasting beauty.

Dr. Anne Klaeysen will host a discussion on My Name Is Red, by Orhan Pamuk In 16th century Istanbul the Sultan has commissioned a cadre of the most acclaimed artists in the land to create a great book celebrating the glories of his realm. Their task is to illuminate the work in the European style. Because figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam, this commission is a dangerous proposition. Therefore, the ruling elite must not know the full scope or nature of the project, and panic erupts when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears. The only clue to the mystery – or crime? – lies in the half-finished illuminations themselves. The novel blends mystery, love, art, and religion into a fascinating tale. Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
