Gallery Talk: Paintings Of Night
This talk will explore depictions of darkness and night in paintings in the European collection, including works by artists from Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Led by graduate student guest lecturer Lindsay Alberts, we will investigate the different compositional techniques and lighting devices employed by artists to both illuminate their nighttime scenes and to bring the cover of darkness to works with more ambiguous temporal settings. Questions of "how" and "why" will dominate this discussion, as we explore the reasons why artists chose to depict night scenes and utilize darkness and shadow in their works.

Oceanic Verses is a full-length multimedia opera created by acclaimed composer Paola Prestini in collaboration with film artist Ali Hossaini and librettist Donna Di Novelli. Against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, Oceanic Verses follows people who flee and people who stay; it follows those who sail to escape and those who sail to arrive. As two ghosts re-enact their courtship, a Sailor searches for lost songs and a Scholar discovers a common past. All are united through the power of music, which keeps them afloat.
The story is derived from lost languages, texts of ancient songs, and found poems, woven into a beautiful literary tapestry by librettist Donna Di Novelli. Using a technique of undulating video, film artist Ali Hossaini creates a visual and musical landscape onscreen that presents the inner lives of the characters. Players and audience members alike will be immersed in the folkloric landscape that inspired Oceanic Verses.
Tickets: $15 / $10 students

While on an international tour of North America. Daniele is an influential Italian jazz-fusion guitarist. He has released 30 studio albums since 1975. Born in Naples, Italy on March 19, 1955, self-taught guitarist Pino Daniele recorded his first album at the age of 22. From the beginning of his career, it was evident that his passion lay in rock and blues. Greatly influenced by his own cultural background, his music was a successful fusion of tradition and modernity.
His solo debut, Terra Mia, sung in Neapolitan, was the first example of what Daniele called "taramblù," a combination of tarantella, rhumba, and blues. In 1979 his self-titled sophomore record was released, followed by Nero a Metà in 1980, and that same year Daniele was invited to open for reggae superstar Bob Marley for his show in Milan. During the next few years the artist continued exploring his various Mediterranean, African, and Western inspirations-found in albums like Common Ground, a collaboration with American folk singer Richie Havens, and the Middle Eastern-influenced Bonne Soirée-as well as writing soundtracks for films by Massimo Troisi.
In 1989 Daniele took a step toward greater commercial success with the release of the pop record Mascalzone Latino, followed by another deluge of albums, including 1991's Un Uomo in Blues, 1993's Che Dio Ti Benedica (which had two tracks produced by Chick Corea), 1995's Non Calpestare I Fiori Nel Deserto, 1997's Dimmi Cosa Succede Sulla Terra, and 2000's Medina.
Two years later the singer teamed up with fellow Italian stars Francesco DeGregori, Ron, and Fiorella Mannoia for a tour, captured on the appropriately titled In Tour. In 2005 Daniele released Iguana Café, another studio record. Between 2005 and 2010, Daniele released three more studio albums: Il Mio Nome e Pino Daniele e Vivo Qui, Ricomincio da 30, and Electric Jam. In 2010, Daniele released his 13th studio album, Boogie Boogie Man.
On June 24, 2011, in Salerno, Italy, Pino Daniele performed side by side with the English blues rock superstar Eric Clapton. A benefit for children's causes in Italy, the concert sold out to capacity at the Stadio di Cava de' Tirreni.

Memory Traces: A Collection of Italian Memories of Boston
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the Consulate General of Italy in Boston and the MIT Mobile Experience Lab, in partnership with COMITES (Committee of Italians Abroad) of Boston, has developed Memory Traces: A Collection of Italian Memories of Boston. Boston's Italian community dates back to 1860, when the first immigrants came to the United States seeking better conditions than those of their homeland. For the past 150 years, Italian-Americans have played a prominent role in the city of Boston, having distinguished themselves in various disciplines including business, government, medicine, technology, humanities, and academia. Through geo-located video interviews, the Memory Traces project explores the Italian experience in Boston. These recollections from selected representatives of fi rst generation and American born Italians help preserve their heritage for future generations. The use of new media has enabled this interactive documentary. The Memory Traces project website features the stories overlaid on a map of the city. Stories can be fi ltered by person, time period, and a selection of themes that capture the
http://locast.mit.edu/memorytraces/ messages of the stories. A mobile application provides the opportunity for others to follow these memory trails through the city of Boston.
