GSD TALKS. Knoll Studio: Florian Idenburg and Benjamin Pardo on the Future of Work
Loeb Library, Gund Hall
Harvard University Graduate School of Design
48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
Tue., Mar. 22, 2016, 121:30p.m.



This event will celebrate the launch of a studio report documenting the investigations and projects of Work Environments 1: Campus and Event. Work Environments is a three studio series at Harvard GSD, sponsored by the furniture company Knoll, to examine through research and design the disruptive transformations that occur globally in environments where work takes place. Given the unique position of the office to register changes within society and to actively reshape traditional hierarchies, tomorrow's workplace must arrive with a clear attitude and outlook. The studio series seeks to explicate existing cultural trends and perspectives, using this knowledge to speculate on future scenarios and potential responses within the worksphere. Benjamin Pardo, director of design at Knoll, and Florian Idenburg, associate professor in practice of architecture, will analyze radical shifts in the workspace, discussing the state of today's office environments and speculating on the potential challenges and transformations that will affect them in the near future. The conversation will reexamine the first edition of this studio series, Work Environments 1: Campus and Event, looking at the work produced, with its focus on the nomadic worker and the would be corporate utopia, as well as debating the questions that emerged from the students' research and scenarios.

"Radical Practice," hosted by Women in Design with Julia King, Susan Surface, and Others
Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall
Harvard University Graduate School of Design
48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
Tue., Mar. 8, 2016, 6:308p.m.



On March 8, 2016, Women in Design, a Harvard Graduate School of Design student group, will celebrate its third-annual International Womens Day. Dedicated to empowering women designers, we propose an open dialogue on what it means to be a creative woman developing, challenging, and innovating her craft in the 21st century. In exploring conventional and potential modes of practice, we aim to cultivate radical alternatives to the dominant roles and methods of our fields. As we reflect on strides the design fields have made toward achieving gender equity, we see International Womens Day 2016 as a catalytic platform to investigate how radical practice can re-situateand revolutionizeour work.

Women in Design continues to challenge how women, as well as other underrepresented groups in the design disciplines, can work for equity across representation, compensation, and valuation. To mark this years International Womens Day, we have invited pioneering women practitioners across the design disciplines to engage and share their backgrounds, experiences, and philosophies of radical practicethe what, how, and why (or why not). In this spirit, we invite you to join us in questioning and speculating how, both individually and collectively, we can radically transform the design field.

Breakbot
This event is 18 and over
Breakbot


After the Baby I'm Yours EP and a few other similar projects, Breakbot released his debut album in 2012 on Ed Banger. By Your Side, a sun-filled soundtrack with cheeky writing, where the bass line and the guitar answered each other in a rhythmic lovefest.

Together, Breakbot and Irfane have presented By Your Side in all the big cities of the world on a tour that has lasted almost two years. This long meandering finally gave the two friends the idea to create a duo.

In 2016, the new Breakbot version "one plus one" will release a second album, Still Waters, a new assortment of southern sunrays, with swinging images of dancefloors filled with guys in flowing trousers and bare-shouldered young girls.

Unlike the previous album, this one is more of a matrix with intricate workmanship, carved out with the help of old analogue machines rather than softwares. Thirteen bouncy acts with Stevie Wonder and the Motown crowd in the background, spouts of funk and disco on a well-trodden dancefloor.

Crafty ideas whipped-up in a vintage outfit with techno vibes and futuristic accelerations creating a perfectly current soundtrack. Tomorrow's retro that they will present all around France & Europe.

When: May 16, 2016 8 PM in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Cost: $15 advance / $18 day of show (Mon, 16 May 2016 20 )

Art of Jazz
Ethelbert Cooper Gallery, 102 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA
Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Room 3610, Cambridge, MA
Fri., May 6, 2016, 10a.m.5p.m.



Art of Jazz: Form/Performance/Notes, a stunning new three-part exhibition at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art held in collaboration with the Harvard Art Museums, explores the interaction between jazz music and the visual arts. With more than 70 pieces ranging from early jazz age objects and mid-century jazz ephemera to contemporary works by established African American artists, the exhibition explores the beginnings of jazz and traces how it was embraced internationally as an art form, a social movement and musical iconography for Black expression.

Art of Jazz consists of three exhibits at two venues. Form, a collection of work curated by Harvard University scholars, is presented in the Teaching Galleries at the Harvard Art Museums. Performance is a collection of books, album covers, photos and other ephemera in the Cooper Gallerys lobby and front galleries. It includes works by modernist painter Beauford Delaney, photographers Hugh Bell and Van Vechten, and a sound installation accompanying an exhibition of album covers. Both Form and Performance are curated by Harvard scholars Suzanne Blier and David Bindman.

The contemporary third part, Notes, unfolds through five of Coopers main galleries, responding to the other two parts with artwork that illustrates how late-20th- and 21st-century contemporary artists view and engage with jazz. It showcases works by an array of painters, sculptors, musicians and more, including award-winning jazz pianist Jason Moran (who contributes a music-based installation in tribute to jazz legends), conceptual painter Lina Viktor, installation artist Whitfield Lovell, contemporary collage artist Cullen Washington, photographer Ming Smith and sculptor/photographer/clothing designerChristopher Myers. Notes is curated by Cooper Gallery Director Vera Grant.

The exhibition runs from February 3 through May 8.

Askwith Forum New American Mosaic: Diversity and The Innovation Economy
Longfellow Hall
13 Appian Way
Cambridge, MA 02138
Fri., Mar. 4, 2016, 5:307p.m.



Speaker: Alejandra Y. Castillo, National Director, Minority Business Development Agency, U.S. Department of Commerce

By 2044, the U.S. Census Bureau anticipates that minority populations will become the majority groups in America. What does this mean? What are the opportunities and challenges for democracy? How do we define a New America? Undoubtedly, these are all questions that present significant public policy challenges in education, health, workforce readiness, as well as economic and business participation. The success of Americas minority populations, the mosaic of our democracy, will directly determine whether or not the United States continues to be globally competitive in an ever-changing economic and technological landscape.

Today more than ever, educators are uniquely positioned to serve as important catalysts of change. What role will they play in designing the vehicle to develop and sharpen critical thinking, support new democratic systems, and create innovative technologies that are able to advance policies and programs designed to ensure that all Americans are active participants in the economic engine that fuels the nation? The economic nexus between entrepreneurs and educators is a symbiotic relation. Castillo will provide education leaders with a call to action designed to boldly lead us into a healthy economic future by embracing the new demographic horizon with groundbreaking action and urgency.

In conjunction with the 14th Annual Alumni of Color Conference (AOCC) , Educators as Architects: Building a Mosaic for Democracy Now!

Art of Jazz
Ethelbert Cooper Gallery, 102 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA
Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Room 3610, Cambridge, MA
Sat., Mar. 5, 2016, 10a.m.5p.m.



Art of Jazz: Form/Performance/Notes, a stunning new three-part exhibition at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art held in collaboration with the Harvard Art Museums, explores the interaction between jazz music and the visual arts. With more than 70 pieces ranging from early jazz age objects and mid-century jazz ephemera to contemporary works by established African American artists, the exhibition explores the beginnings of jazz and traces how it was embraced internationally as an art form, a social movement and musical iconography for Black expression.

Art of Jazz consists of three exhibits at two venues. Form, a collection of work curated by Harvard University scholars, is presented in the Teaching Galleries at the Harvard Art Museums. Performance is a collection of books, album covers, photos and other ephemera in the Cooper Gallerys lobby and front galleries. It includes works by modernist painter Beauford Delaney, photographers Hugh Bell and Van Vechten, and a sound installation accompanying an exhibition of album covers. Both Form and Performance are curated by Harvard scholars Suzanne Blier and David Bindman.

The contemporary third part, Notes, unfolds through five of Coopers main galleries, responding to the other two parts with artwork that illustrates how late-20th- and 21st-century contemporary artists view and engage with jazz. It showcases works by an array of painters, sculptors, musicians and more, including award-winning jazz pianist Jason Moran (who contributes a music-based installation in tribute to jazz legends), conceptual painter Lina Viktor, installation artist Whitfield Lovell, contemporary collage artist Cullen Washington, photographer Ming Smith and sculptor/photographer/clothing designerChristopher Myers. Notes is curated by Cooper Gallery Director Vera Grant.

The exhibition runs from February 3 through May 8.
Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday 10am - 5pm
