French Cinema Week & FIAF
Charlotte Forever:
Gainsbourg on Film
November & December

FIAF Florence Gould Hall

FIAF honors the career of celebrated actress, musician, and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg with a CinéSalon series devoted to her work on screen. Known for her bold choices and unfailingly independent spirit, Gainsbourg has become a muse for renowned directors from Lars von Trier to Yvan Attal.

The daughter of two European stars—Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg—the younger Gainsbourg was recognized as a supreme talent by her early teens. She won the César Award for Most Promising Actress at 14 years old for her performance in L’effrontée, and has been a consistently brilliant presence in cinema on both sides of the Atlantic since. Over the course of her career, Gainsbourg has crafted a mesmerizing screen presence with raw and emotional intensity which is captured through the films in this series.

New York Shakespeare Exchange
Announces the Next
Freestyle Lab:
Our Own Voices, Our Own Tongues
Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 7pm
53rd Street Library

New York Shakespeare Exchange announces the next Freestyle Lab: Our Own Voices, Our Own Tongues on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 7pm at the 53rd Street Library.

New York Shakespeare Exchange will present the final 2019 installment of their signature Freestyle Labs. Led by our curators and guest scholars, this lab will invite a discussion on Shakespeare and translation, asking us to consider how the work of a playwright who is known around the world might change as that work is "adopted" by other countries and cultures outside of his native England. What do we lose or gain when Shakespeare is translated out of its original text, and what are the different ways that translation can be its own creative act?

The November lab is co-curated by Jennifer Curfman and Cristina Lundy. Participating guest scholars include Cen Liu and Alison Walls, both PhD candidates at the CUNY Graduate Center.

This event is free, but reservations are suggested at

The Color of Power:
Heroes, Sheroes, & Their Creators Exhibit Opening Day | Saturday November 16, 2019 | 12PM - 6PM
Caribbean Cultural Center

are you a superhero/shero fanatic?!

Many of us consume superhero/shero stories daily, immersing ourselves in their fantastic worlds. We see ourselves in their back stories, super strengths, and weaknesses. However, rarely do these characters, that we so love, have their narratives, or their creators, reflected in our actual diverse world. Our upcoming exhibition, The Color of Power: Heroes, Sheroes, & Their Creators explores these issues.

On Saturday November 16, 2019, join us for the opening of our upcoming exhibition, The Color of Power: Heroes, Sheroes, & Their Creators. The exhibition is guest curated and features art from critically-acclaimed graphic novelist, activist, and philanthropist Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez of Somos Arte. On display will be the work of Sanford Greene, Alitha Martinez, Nilah Magruder, Afua Richardson, Ronald Wimberly, Billy Graham, and Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, guest curator. These comic book artists have achieved great commercial success and critical acclaim, creating stories that celebrate the beauty and rich heritage of the African Diaspora.

Our opening day will begin with SouSou! Saturdays family program occurring from 12:00 pm-4:00 pm; and programs for general audiences, including a wine reception, and a special limited guided tour by the guest-curator of the exhibition between 4:00pm-6:00pm.

The Drag Explosion
Friday, November 15th. 8PM
The Wild Project

On Friday, November 15th, Linda Simpson, a shining star of NYC’s drag scene for almost 30 years, returns to The Wild Project with another presentation of her acclaimed narrated her-storical slideshow, The Drag Explosion. All of the photos were shot by Linda from the late 1980s to the mid ‘90s (back when it was rare to hobnob with a camera), and they reveal a golden age of NYC drag history. During this era, the drag scene remarkably transformed from an underground art form into a pop-culture phenomenon. The photos capture wild nightlife, queer activism, and all sorts of colorful characters, including RuPaul, Lady Bunny and Lypsinka, as they joyfully pushed the boundaries of gender expression. Linda has presented her entertaining and educational history lesson at art spaces, theaters and colleges from coast to cast, as well as internationally. The website is
