MoMA Premiere: Through the Weeping Glass: An Evening with the Quay Brothers
September 24, 2011
As part of a limited three-city tour that includes premieres in Philadelphia and Los Angeles, MoMA presents the Quay Brothers’Through the Weeping Glass: On the Consolations of Life Everlasting (Limbos & Afterbreezes in the Mütter Museum), a new work by the American-born, British-based independent filmmakers. In the tradition of their prior museum documentaries—The Phantom Museum (2003), on London’s Sir Henry Wellcome Collection, and Inventorium of Traces (2009), on Poland’s Lancut Castle—the Quays return to the city where they began their education as graphic designers to explore the medical collections of the Mütter Museum, part of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Examining obscure archives, antique volumes, and artifacts, Through the Weeping Glass investigates marvels of pathology and anatomical oddities, finding poetry in the ill-fated, true-life stories of the “ossified man” Harry Eastlack and famed Siamese twins Chang and Eng Bunker. The documentary Behind the Scenes with the Quay Brothers, shot during production ofThrough the Weeping Glass, also premieres. Directors Stephen and Timothy Quay will be present to discuss the film with writer David Spolum and moderator Barbara London.

SUNDAY SALON NYC | March 20, 2011
The web is currently abuzz with the discussion about race and our treatment of and fraught relationship with speaking about race, between poets Claudia Rankine and Tony Hoagland. The title of the Blue Parlor reading at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, “From the Dark Tower”, comes from a poem of the same name by Countée Cullen, the focus of the text being the many ways in which our engagement with issues of ethnicity are “kept in the dark” and where he argues for taking those discussions to the heights reached by a tower which would allow us all to hear and benefit from the conversation. The “From the Dark Tower” reading has and will continue to give writers of all races a voice as they grapple in interesting and illuminating ways with collective and individual identities. This will be the second annual “From the Dark Tower” reading in NYC. Expect to be moved.
