Caspian: The Elements

"Caspian: The Elements" is a new exhibit featuring the evocative imagery of Chloe Dewe Mathews, the 2014 recipient of the Peabody Museum’s Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography. The exhibit documents her extraordinary five-year journey through the contested borderlands of the Caspian Sea, and reveals the essential role played by elemental materials like oil, rock, and uranium in the practical, artistic, spiritual, and therapeutic aspects of daily life. Caspian: The Elements is a powerful photographic narrative that explores the deep links between the peoples of the Caspian and their enigmatic and coveted landscapes. The exhibition will remain on view through Feb. 17, 2020.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L.

Japan on Paper

The exhibition features almost 50 works spanning the history of Japanese woodblock printing, from the 17th through 20th century; these include single-sheet prints, luxury surimono prints, printed handscrolls, and printed books by renowned designers such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725–1770), pioneer of the full-color print; landscape specialist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858); enigmatic designer Sharaku (active 1794–95), best known for “big head” (ōkubi) actor prints; Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800); and the ever-popular Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). Also included are modern “new print” (shin hanga) and “creative print” (sōsaku hanga) works by the leaders of these two 20th-century movements, as well as a selection of woodblock printing tools to enhance visitors’ understanding of the medium.

Mary Roettger

This exhibition of work by Mary Roettger (1956-2017) honors and commemorates a former Ceramics Program instructor and artist in residence. Mary was a gifted teacher, who inspired beginning and advanced students with challenging, in-depth projects which expanded their expressive potential and technical abilities. In homage to the breadth and depth of Mary’s teaching and creative practice, this exhibition will present a wide range of her work so that students, professionals and the general public are able to learn from her evolution.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

I Was a Male War Bride

One of the most popular films of its year due largely to the novelty of seeing the world’s biggest movie star dressed in drag, "I Was a Male War Bride" stars Cary Grant alongside Hawks newcomer Ann Sheridan in an eccentric screwball comedy based on the memoir of a Belgian, Henri Rochard, who married an American servicewoman following WWII. In its first half, the film follows the trusty formula popularized by screwball comedies like "Bringing Up Baby," with Grant and Sheridan, playing a French army captain and the Women’s Army Corps lieutenant with whom he’s assigned for postwar duty, masking their mutual attraction under relentless verbal sparring. When the two drop the façade halfway through, however, Hawks goes about comprehensively charting the absurdities of the era’s U.S. Immigration Law, which enabled a war groom’s passage to America only via a loophole in the system: he must pose as a bride. The film generates much of its comedy through the relative stoicism of Grant in the face of these ludicrous bure… Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council. Gazette Classification: Education. Theater. Organization/Sponsor: American Repertory Theater and Company One Theatre. Cost: Tickets from $25. Friday, July 19, 2019, 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM.

To Have and Have Not

Rarely has Hollywood produced a male-female duo with more chemistry than Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and "To Have and Have Not," their first collaboration and Bacall’s onscreen debut, ranks among their most electric. The film, based on an undistinguished Ernest Hemingway novel whose complicated black-market plotting is thoroughly streamlined by Hawks in favor of character exploration, is defined by long, simmering sequences of flirtation between its two stars, who command a series of cramped two shots with an ongoing dynamic of physical intimacy, innuendo and battles of wit. Bogart is a charter ship owner in Vichy-occupied Martinique and Bacall is the singing American tourist who catches his eye from across the boat’s swarming cabaret. Both become embroiled in a fiasco involving French Resistance money and pesky Vichy policemen, but all of this is window dressing. "To Have and Have Not" is first and foremost one of Hawks’ most atmospherically distinctive films, conjuring in a studio backlot a dance of… Gazette Classification: Film.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens, colorful visuals, and interactive media.

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II, by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966). On public view for the first time in 15 years, the work was commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius. The relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center), at the Harvard Law School.

The Right Stuff

Philip Kaufman’s adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s bestselling book remains an exciting, accomplished piece of filmmaking and a fascinating specimen of Americana. In compiling a team of physically and mentally fit daredevils who weren’t too unmanageable, the U.S. government was also crafting the ideal American heroes: rugged, rough-around-the-edges, independent men who were ultimately team players as anxious as their superiors to beat the Russians in the race to outer space. Bolstered by Caleb Deschanel’s beautiful cinematography and Jordan Belson’s realistic special effects, the remarkable ensemble character-actor cast — whose careers the film also helped launch into orbit — forms the convincing heart of "The Right Stuff." By focusing on five of the Mercury Seven, the film delves just deep enough into both their personal and suddenly very public lives, while acknowledging the emotional toll taken on their wives during these extraordinarily high-risk missions into the unknown. This thrilling portrait of the first ast… Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens, colorful visuals, and interactive media.

Clay — Modeling African Design

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

Japan on Paper

The exhibition features almost 50 works spanning the history of Japanese woodblock printing, from the 17th through 20th century; these include single-sheet prints, luxury surimono prints, printed handscrolls, and printed books by renowned designers such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725–1770), pioneer of the full-color print; landscape specialist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858); enigmatic designer Sharaku (active 1794–95), best known for “big head” (ōkubi) actor prints; Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800); and the ever-popular Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). Also included are modern “new print” (shin hanga) and “creative print” (sōsaku hanga) works by the leaders of these two 20th-century movements, as well as a selection of woodblock printing tools to enhance visitors’ understanding of the medium.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

The Thing from Another World

A nondescript set masquerading as an Alaskan research outpost, about a dozen spirited B-list actors, and a few rudimentary special effects are all that’s needed to mount nail-biting suspense in "The Thing from Another World," a thrifty sci-fi classic that is as much about the moment-to-moment logistics of grappling with the unknown as it is about the eponymous alien entity itself. When a mysterious saucer from the sky crash-lands near a secluded Air Force compound, Captain Patrick Hendry and a ragtag bunch of servicemen are forced to make imaginative use of their limited resources to conquer their increasingly predatory visitor, all while butting heads with a cerebral scientist who insists the extraterrestrial beast is mere “phenomena to be studied.” In ceding the director’s chair to then-debuting filmmaker Christian Nyby, Hawks claimed only a producer role for the film, though his stylistic influence is so strongly felt in the brisk banter and calculated blocking that there has long been speculation as to th… Gazette Classification: Film.

Air Force

Hawks directed his final tribute to aviation with this rousing piece of WWII military propaganda. Made at the height of the war effort, "Air Force" depicts the chaotic days following the attack on Pearl Harbor by focusing on a small brigade that gets pulled into combat in the midst of a routine training mission, but Hawks treats the action of warfare as secondary to the smaller dramas between the crew members onboard their cramped B-17 bomber plane. The terrific ensemble, composed largely of relative unknowns, embodies a cast of characters culled from various walks of American life: among others, there’s the family-man pilot (John Ridgely), the rebellious newcomer (John Garfield), the Jewish mechanic (George Tobias), a fresh-faced radio operator (Ray Montgomery), and Harry Carey in one of his most affecting late performances as a veteran crew chief whose son works at another base. Much of the film is devoted to the team-building conversations that take place amongst the group while maintaining the plane, wher… Gazette Classification: Film.

Clay — Modeling African Design

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history. Countering the assumption that African arts and societies are largely unchanging and bound to traditions and customs, the remarkable diversity of objects and styles on display here tells a different story. Closed on the following holidays: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve (closed at 3pm), New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Indigenous Peoples' Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L.

Japan on Paper

The exhibition features almost 50 works spanning the history of Japanese woodblock printing, from the 17th through 20th century; these include single-sheet prints, luxury surimono prints, printed handscrolls, and printed books by renowned designers such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725–1770), pioneer of the full-color print; landscape specialist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858); enigmatic designer Sharaku (active 1794–95), best known for “big head” (ōkubi) actor prints; Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800); and the ever-popular Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). Also included are modern “new print” (shin hanga) and “creative print” (sōsaku hanga) works by the leaders of these two 20th-century movements, as well as a selection of woodblock printing tools to enhance visitors’ understanding of the medium.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Fazil

Hawks was reluctantly fulfilling a Fox assignment when he took on the adaptation of Pierre Frondaie’s 1922 play "L’Insoumise" about a conservative Arabian sheik who falls in love with a modern, free-spirited Parisienne. Just as the lovers feel when removed from their respective cultures, the director was also out of his element in this melodramatic romance. Silent screen heartthrob Charles Farrell dutifully fills the role of the stringent, sexy Arabian — much to Hawks’ and certainly contemporary viewers’ dismay — while Norwegian star Greta Nissen seems more credible and comfortable as the feisty, independent Fabienne. In addition to beautifully filmed vignettes within the visually sumptuous — if exoticized — “Arabia,” the picture delivers many other surprises, including a shocking scene of an execution ordered by "Fazil;" the couple’s sweet and intimate pre-Code courtship; and an even racier, provocatively detailed sequence inside Fazil’s elaborate harem.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council.

Ashcharya: An Exhibition

Sneha Shrestha (aka Imagine), Ed.M.’17 is a Nepali artist whose work combines Sanskrit scripture with graffiti. Known for her wall-sized installations, Shrestha also makes small paintings that encapsulate the mindful mantras of her larger works. These works speak to the Buddhist side of Shrestha's culture, which sees heaven as "...a place that your mind goes to. And given that calm and clear minds are probably happy minds, then heaven means attaining happiness...". Although Sneha Shrestha's lyrical text paintings are small in scale compared to her large graffiti works, they project a sense of joy and ingenuous clarity that belies their diminutive size.

Ashcharya: Opening Reception

Sneha Shrestha (a.k.a. Imagine), Ed.M.’17 is a Nepali artist whose work combines Sanskrit scripture with graffiti. Known for her wall-sized installations, Shrestha also makes small paintings that encapsulate the mindful mantras of her larger works. These works speak to the Buddhist side of Shrestha's culture, which sees heaven as "...a place that your mind goes to. And given that calm and clear minds are probably happy minds, then heaven means attaining happiness...". Although Sneha Shrestha's lyrical text paintings are small in scale compared to her large graffiti works, they project a sense of joy and ingenuous clarity that belies their diminutive size.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint.

Clay — Modeling African Design

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history. Countering the assumption that African arts and societies are largely unchanging and bound to traditions and customs, the remarkable diversity of objects and styles on display here tells a different story.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

Japan on Paper

The exhibition features almost 50 works spanning the history of Japanese woodblock printing, from the 17th through 20th century; these include single-sheet prints, luxury surimono prints, printed handscrolls, and printed books by renowned designers such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725–1770), pioneer of the full-color print; landscape specialist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858); enigmatic designer Sharaku (active 1794–95), best known for “big head” (ōkubi) actor prints; Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800); and the ever-popular Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). Also included are modern “new print” (shin hanga) and “creative print” (sōsaku hanga) works by the leaders of these two 20th-century movements, as well as a selection of woodblock printing tools to enhance visitors’ understanding of the medium.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Rio Bravo

Viewed by many as the peak of Hawks’ career, if not the Western in total, "Rio Bravo" boasts the director in full command of his peculiar brand of plotless genre cinema, grinding narrative momentum down to a slow crawl to keep the spotlight on the rich character interplay for which his work is revered. At the heart of the film is a drawn-out duel between a sheriff (John Wayne) and the powerful rancher (John Russell) whose brother he locked up for murder, but the real meat of this lengthy, digressive “hangout” movie is the camaraderie shared between Wayne and his co-stars while their characters negotiate their next moves in the small-town jail. As the sheriff’s right-hand men, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson and Walter Brennan mine humor and depths of feeling from cliched archetypes, while Angie Dickinson, clad in a dazzling array of costumes, embodies an ideal Hawksian love interest as the whip-smart gambler who steals Wayne’s affection.

House of Several Stories: A Tragedy in Two Acts of Nonsense

"House of Several Stories: A Tragedy in Two Acts of Nonsense" is an absurdist comedy about a dysfunctional family and their Thanksgiving "guests." Bastian returns home for Thanksgiving with news of "joining the service." Mother suggests he join a gym. Bastian's news takes a backseat when his sister, Rissa, suddenly decides that she's pregnant, and though not yet showing, expects to deliver "any minute now". Both children are then bombarded with Mother's news of an older brother that they've never known about, Thom, who has returned home for Thanksgiving from the war. Things are further complicated with the arrival of the mysterious, young Abigail, who has simply stopped by to drop something off: her newborn baby. That is, until she discovers the baby's father might be in the house. The play explores how stories help fill voids in people's lives caused by death, loss, and dysfunction.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L.

Japan on Paper

The exhibition features almost 50 works spanning the history of Japanese woodblock printing, from the 17th through 20th century; these include single-sheet prints, luxury surimono prints, printed handscrolls, and printed books by renowned designers such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725–1770), pioneer of the full-color print; landscape specialist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858); enigmatic designer Sharaku (active 1794–95), best known for “big head” (ōkubi) actor prints; Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800); and the ever-popular Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). Also included are modern “new print” (shin hanga) and “creative print” (sōsaku hanga) works by the leaders of these two 20th-century movements, as well as a selection of woodblock printing tools to enhance visitors’ understanding of the medium.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

High Noon

Fred Zinnemann’s now-classic moral Western was despised by Hawks and John Wayne, who decried the Austrian-born director’s vision of the West as “un-American.” In truth, Zinnemann was inspired by the distinctly “un-American” sentiments transforming Hollywood — the HUAC trials and Red Scare that had punished many politically outspoken artists and victimized countless others with a culture of fear and self-serving conservative rectitude. Viewed today, "High Noon" stands upright not only as a cautionary tale about how the high road is often the loneliest, but also as a remarkable exploration of subjective and expressive narrative in which the almost real-time structure allows each passing minute to be felt as lashes across the back of Gary Cooper’s sheriff as he walks in a kind of Passion through the increasingly deserted town toward the deadly showdown that awaits.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council.

House of Several Stories: A Tragedy in Two Acts of Nonsense

"House of Several Stories: A Tragedy in Two Acts of Nonsense" is an absurdist comedy about a dysfunctional family and their Thanksgiving "guests." Bastian returns home for Thanksgiving with news of "joining the service." Mother suggests he join a gym. Bastian's news takes a backseat when his sister, Rissa, suddenly decides that she's pregnant, and though not yet showing, expects to deliver "any minute now". Both children are then bombarded with Mother's news of an older brother that they've never known about, Thom, who has returned home for Thanksgiving from the war. Things are further complicated with the arrival of the mysterious, young Abigail, who has simply stopped by to drop something off: her newborn baby. That is, until she discovers the baby's father might be in the house. The play explores how stories help fill voids in people's lives caused by death, loss, and dysfunction.

Ceiling Zero

"Ceiling Zero" offers a standout early example of Hawks’ penchant for mixing seemingly incompatible tonal registers. Pointing ahead to "Only Angels Have Wings," the film’s first half is dedicated to the screwball banter of Dizzy (James Cagney), Tex (Stuart Erwin) and Jake (Pat O’Brien), lifelong friends whose enduring passion for flying has led them all to careers in commercial aviation. In these early scenes, Hawks savors the easy rapport and overlapping one-liners shared among the men, and the mood becomes playfully, insinuatingly erotic when Dizzy falls for a flirtatious flight trainee (June Travis). But naivete and overconfidence quickly spell danger as the young pilots find themselves on nerve-wracking missions in the sky, where storm clouds and enveloping fog prompt emergency landings and casualties. The film’s second half pivots to tragedy, with Cagney negotiating a moving transition from boorish adolescent to sympathetic, hardened adult. Shot on a shoestring, "Ceiling Zero" makes stirring use of pract… Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

Ashcharya: An Exhibition

Sneha Shrestha (aka Imagine), Ed.M.’17 is a Nepali artist whose work combines Sanskrit scripture with graffiti. Known for her wall-sized installations, Shrestha also makes small paintings that encapsulate the mindful mantras of her larger works. These works speak to the Buddhist side of Shrestha's culture, which sees heaven as "...a place that your mind goes to. And given that calm and clear minds are probably happy minds, then heaven means attaining happiness...". Although Sneha Shrestha's lyrical text paintings are small in scale compared to her large graffiti works, they project a sense of joy and ingenuous clarity that belies their diminutive size.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint.

Things are further complicated with the arrival of the mysterious, young Abigail, who has simply stopped by to drop something off: her newborn baby. That is, until she discovers the baby's father might be in the house. The play explores how stories help fill voids in people's lives caused by death, loss, and dysfunction.

The Dawn Patrol

Hawks’ first film of his most productive decade marks one of the great stylistic leaps in cinema history. Not the first production to fully incorporate direct-sound recording, but one that nevertheless revolutionized the way that sound would be used in movie narratives, "The Dawn Patrol" captures the gloomy evenings and cacophonous mornings at a British air base during World War I, where an ever-diminishing cadre of hopeful men while away their days drinking and reminiscing in between deadly missions behind enemy lines. The film’s prevailing atmosphere, manifested most plainly by a chalkboard listing the surviving pilots that gets sparser by the day, is one of impending doom, and Hawks, a former flight instructor, lends the proceedings an authentic sense of the trials of daily warfare, where grief and spiritual decay are offset by male bonding. Alternating between hushed scenes of mourning at the base and brutally intense episodes of aerial combat, Hawks cultivates a hypnotic narrative structure that revolves… Gazette Classification: Film.

El Dorado

In the mythic Old West town of El Dorado, two aging cowboys — one a drunken sheriff (Robert Mitchum) and the other a gunman-for-hire (John Wayne) — team up with a bearded old codger (Arthur Hunnicutt), a young eccentric (James Caan), and a tough-as-nails saloon owner (Charlene Holt) in a face-off against a rancher (Ed Asner) and his pack of thugs. El Dorado’s stock scenario is a bald-faced retread of "Rio Bravo" (screenwriter Leigh Brackett even lampooned it as “The Son of Rio Bravo Rides Again”), but Hawks is one of the rare filmmakers who can repeat himself without really repeating himself. In its subtle variations on the prior film’s winning formula, "El Dorado" becomes something altogether new and welcome, not to mention a sly treatise on the twilight stage of Hawks’ career. The film’s mischievous narrative structure first lures the viewer with rising tension, then leaps ahead in time to a series of slow builds and frantic shootouts, the most memorable of which takes place around a church bell tower and f… Gazette Classification: Film.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

Fig Leaves

Upon proving himself capable of moralistic drama with "The Road to Glory," Hawks was determined to fashion something much lighter and more commercial for his sophomore effort. He begins by establishing the ancient history of marital combat with his lead couple as the original Adam and Eve, who live a fanciful proto-Flintstones lifestyle complete with elaborate “high-tech” stone-age contraptions and a pet dinosaur. As time leaps ahead to the 1920s, so do the relationship jokes, particularly those involving women and clothes. These come to an entertaining crossroads when a famous fashion designer’s car hits Eve — accompanied by a spectacular special effect. Unbeknownst to a clueless Adam, she is pulled into Josef André’s illustrious design house as his latest muse. Hawks caps his bubbly sex comedy with a dazzling fashion show sequence — originally screened in two-strip Technicolor — featuring stunning gowns designed by Adrian (before he was the Adrian). Including an array of theatrical characters — such as Eve’… Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

Caspian: The Elements

"Caspian: The Elements" is a new exhibit featuring the evocative imagery of Chloe Dewe Mathews, the 2014 recipient of the Peabody Museum’s Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography. The exhibit documents her extraordinary five-year journey through the contested borderlands of the Caspian Sea, and reveals the essential role played by elemental materials like oil, rock, and uranium in the practical, artistic, spiritual, and therapeutic aspects of daily life. Caspian: The Elements is a powerful photographic narrative that explores the deep links between the peoples of the Caspian and their enigmatic and coveted landscapes. The exhibition will remain on view through Feb. 17, 2020.

Climate Change

New exhibition experience: Ongoing and open Monday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Harvard Museum of Natural History has just opened an important new exhibit on climate change that draws on the latest science about our warming climate, the global, and local consequences, and what we can do to prepare for its effects.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens, colorful visuals, and interactive media.

Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within

This exhibition gives visitors the rare chance to encounter a significant 13th-century Japanese icon, "Prince Shōtoku at Age Two," from the inside out. Legendary prince Shōtoku Taishi (c. 574–622) is regarded as the founder of Buddhism in Japan. This striking sculpture is remarkable not only for its seemingly animated presence, but also for the cache of more than 70 objects contained within the hollow body cavity. Sealed inside a veritable time capsule for over 700 years, these objects — relic grains, sutras, miniature sculptures, and scraps of paper inscribed with personalized poems and prayers — were carefully removed in the early 20th century. One of the most important objects from the group, an extremely rare printed Lotus Sutra, was subsequently gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Thanks to the generosity of the Library of Congress, this exhibition reunites the Sutra with the remaining ensemble for the first time in over 70 years. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions.

Greater Good

Welcome to Gleason Street — where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it). As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s "Greater Good" is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Greater" Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups — guided from room to room — as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council. Gazette Classification: Education. Theater. Organization/Sponsor: American Repertory Theater and Company One Theatre. Cost: Tickets from $25. Wednesday, July 31, 2019, 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM.
