ArtTable 2022 Annual Leadership Series
Forum member Jessica Porter, Lila Harnett Executive Director, ArtTable, is pleased to present the 2022 Annual Leadership Series on September 7th, focusing on Latinx & Latin American Identity & Representation in the Visual Arts. ArtTable is very excited to be hosted this year by Christie’s Auction House in Rockefeller Center, with Marysol Nieves, VP and Senior Specialist of Latin American Art at Christie’s, participating as one of our distinguished panelists. Nieves, along with Gabriela Palmieri (Founder and Principal of Palmieri Fine Art) and E. Carmen Ramos (Chief Curatorial and Conservation Officer at The National Gallery of Art), will speak about how Latinx representation in the arts is not simply “having a moment;” Latinx and Latin American artists and arts professionals have and continue to contribute to the development of the culture and history of the United States. Those of Latin American descent are the largest ethnic group in the U.S., and yet historically their contributions have been minimized and excluded in the canon of art history, both in the Americas and internationally. The program will be moderated by CJ Greenhill Caldera, Post-War and Contemporary Specialist and Head of Sale, Americas at artnet.

A Chanukah Classical Music Extravaganza: An Everlasting Light
Women’s Forum member Dr. Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel is inviting Forum members to a spectacular Chanukah classical music performance, Everlasting Light, on Wednesday, December 14th. The performance will be featuring GRAMMY winners Anthony Roth Costanzo and Angel Blue; The Knights and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus at The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center. An Everlasting Light, will be a musical evening celebrating Chanukah, conceived and sponsored by Dr. Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel.
Following the jubilant success of last year’s performance of Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo returns to Temple Emanu-El to curate and perform this very special Chanukah celebration featuring soprano Angel Blue, the versatile orchestra collective The Knights, and the powerhouse Brooklyn Youth Chorus! The performance, conducted by Eric Jacobsen, with cantorial soloist Steven Fox and commentary by Shalom Goldman of Middlebury College, will begin with selections from Handel’s celebrated oratorio on Chanukah themes. It will also feature some of his most exquisite arias, and then offer an exploration of the work of contemporary composers and modern masters, including a work by Carlos Simon written especially for Costanzo and the BYC, and a 20th-century reimagining of traditional folk music.
