In the last 30 years, museums, galleries, fairs, and publications have taken a worldwide approach to art—but how can an art critic make substantive judgements when his or her beat spans the entire globe? In this talk, Jason Farago, art critic for the "New York Times," considers how museums should approach the art of foreign cultures, how viewers can appreciate things they don’t fully understand, and how criticism can offer a view of art as a continuous flow of people, images, and ideas. Generous support for this program has been provided by the Norma Lytton Fund for Docent Education, established in memory of Norma Lytton by her family. Lytton was an active docent at the Center for more than twenty years and subsequently spent a decade engaged in research for the Center’s Department of Paintings and Sculpture. Jason Farago has served as an art critic for the "New York Times" since 2017. Before that he was the first US-based art critic for the "Guardian," and he has been a regular contributor to the "New Yorker," the "New York Review of Books" and other publications. Farago was also the editor and cofounder of the art and culture magazine "Even," whose run is anthologized in "Out of Practice: Ten Issues of Even, 2015–18" (Motto Books). He has published catalogue essays on the art of Sheila Hicks, Simon Hantaï, Kishio Suga, Julia Dault, Meleko Mogkosi, and others. In 2017 he was awarded the inaugural Rabkin Prize for art criticism. false

Great face-to-face job interviews, phone screens and Zoom calls require sound preparation and an understanding of what's important to the person conducting the interview. It also necessitates your ability to convey confidence, subject matter expertise and the art of storytelling. Here are a few questions that a lot of candidates continually ask about job interviews: What do I need to understand about the interviewer in order to come across as a strong candidate? How do I communicate my value so that it quickly captures interest? How can I stand out from other candidates being considered? What can I do to make yourself more memorable and more likeable? During this webinar NSENG Founder & CEO, Marty Gilbert, will share some very tactical tips that can make a big positive difference in the way that you and your background are perceived by the interviewer. Here are some of the topics that Marty will address during his presentation: Key objectives of every interview The biggest challenges of each type of interview and how you can overcome them Preparation that can make your performance more convincing Perspectives from the hiring manager-- how they think, feel and decide How LinkedIn research can deliver great background on each interviewer An artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can tell you a lot about the interviewer before you meet The most important question for you to ask at the beginning of the interview Proactive actions to make yourself more memorable and more likeable false

      Mine! is one of the first words children learn. By the time we grow up, the idea of ownership seems natural, whether buying a cup of coffee or a house. But who controls the space behind your airplane seat: you reclining or the squished laptop user behind? Why does HBO let viewers steal their content by illegally sharing passwords? And after a snowstorm, why does a chair in the street hold your parking space in Chicago, but in New York you lose the space and the chair?

      Mine! explains these puzzles and many more. Surprisingly, there are just six simple stories that everyone uses to claim everything. Owners choose the story that steers us to do what they want. But don’t be fooled. We can always pick a different story. This is true not just for airplane seats, HBO passwords, and parking chairs, but also for battles over digital privacy, climate change, and wealth inequality. With stories that are eye-opening, mind-bending, and sometimes infuriating, Mine! reveals the rules of ownership that secretly control our lives.
