  • Description: Splunk is a data collection and analysis tool specializing in machine-generated data. Unlike traditional databases, Splunk does not require a "schema" or any kind of up-front description of the data; you simply point it at a text stream, or text file, and it ingests and indexes it automatically. It is particularly effective if your data-type may change in the future; if you need to merge several streams of data with different formats; or if the streams are coming in at different frequencies. This workshop will cover how Splunk organizes data as well as some typical commands for querying and working with the data.

  • Location: Smith Warehouse - Bay 4, C105 "Garage" , The Garage
  • Contact: Perry, Beth Monique
  • Description: Art History, Barnard College & Columbia University Recentinterest in the phenomenological presence of the image has made it a commonplace to speak of the ¿agency¿ of objects. This talk will try to understand the nature of that animation. It will argue that works of art are palimpsests of temporalities, and that these forms of time only acquire their meanings as they interact with the equally various forms of time inhabited by those who encounter them. If the ¿agency¿ of the image is an anthropological constant, if human beings inevitably attribute a ¿secondary agency¿ to them, then their power to act can bebetter understood in terms of the multiplicity of times to which they belong, as well as the complexity of the temporalities they enacted in their encounters with spectators. Keith Moxey is Barbara Novak Professor of Art History at Barnard College and Columbia University. He is the author of books on the history and philosophy of art history, as well as on sixteenth century painting in Antwerp and the production of popular prints in the context of the German Reformation. His publications include: Visual Time: The Image in History (2013); The Practice of Persuasion: Politics and Paradox in Art History (2001); The Practice of Theory: Poststructuralism, Cultural Politics and Art History (1994); and Peasants, Warriors, and Wives: Popular Imagery in the Reformation (1989).

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "The Mori-Zwanzig formalism for the reduction of complex dynamics models". Mathematical models of complex physical processes often involve large number of degrees of freedom as well as events occurring on different time scales. Therefore, direct simulations based on these models face tremendous challenge. This focus of this talk is on the Mori-Zwanzig (MZ) projection formalism for reducing the dimension of a complex dynamical system. The goal is to mathematically derive a reduced model with much fewer variables, while still able to capture the essential properties of the system. In many cases, this formalism also eliminates fast modes and makes it possible to explore events over longer time scales. The models that are directly derived from the MZ projection are typically too abstract to be practically implemented. We will first discuss cases where the model can be simplified to generalized Langevin equations (GLE). Furthermore, we introduce systematic numerical approximations to the GLE, in which the fluctuation-dissipation theorem (FDT) is automatically satisfied. More importantly, these approximations lead to a hierarchy of reduced models with increasing accuracy, which would also be useful for an adaptive model refinement (AMR). Examples, including the NLS, atomistic models of materials defects, and molecular models of proteins, will be presented to illustrate the potential applications of the methods.

  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A. Nasher and David Haemisegger, the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, Parker and Otis, Lisa Lowenthal Pruzan and Jonathan Pruzan, Mindy and Guy Solie, Richard Tigner, Carolyn Aaronson, Eunice and Herman Grossman, Caroline and Arthur Rogers, and Angela O.

  • Location: Duke North, Room 2002 , Duke University Hospital
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Lunch provided at NOON. Talk begins at 12:10 pm. Healthcare rationing is often portrayed as anathema in the United States. But Dr. Rosoff will argue that we have excellent examples of overt rationing done well that we find acceptable and even laudatory. Moreover, if we redesign our healthcare system to incorporate rationing, it would undoubtedly be generous and thus it would be rare that patients would not receive something they need or even expect. Philip Rosoff, MD, MA, director of the Clinical Ethics Program, serves as chair for both the Hospital Ethics Committee and the Clinical Ethics Consult Subcommittee. His clinical and research interests center around the equitable allocation of scarce resources. He has recently published the book, Rationing Is Not a Four-Letter Word: Setting Limits on Healthcare (MIT Press).

  • Description: Until recently, most data visualizations were created by installing statistics or visualization software onto our computers. In recent years, however, a number of web-based data visualization tools have been developed. These tools offer many advantages over downloaded software applications - visualizations can be created on PCs or Macs, groups can often collaborate in their creation, and the results can often be shared more easily. This workshop will give a quick overview of several web-based visualizations tools that rival software applications in their ease of use, quality of output, and ability to share research results.

  • Description: "Entropic Inequality on the Sphere" It is an interesting well known fact that the relative entropy with respect to the Gaussian measure on $\mathbb{R}^N$ satisfies a simple subadditivity property. Namely, if $\Pi_1^{(i)}(F_N)$ is the first marginal of the density function F_N in the i-th variable then ¿i=1NH(¿(i)1(FN)|¿1)¿H(FN|¿N), where $\gamma_k$ is the standard Gaussian on $\mathbb{R}^k$. Surprisingly enough, when one tries to achieve a similar result on $\mathbb{S}^{N-1}(\sqrt{N})$ a factor of 2 appears in the right hand side of the inequality (a result due to Carlen, Lieb and Loss), and the constant is sharp. Besides a deviation from the simple equivalence of ensembles principle in equilibrium Statistical Mechanics, this entropic inequality on the sphere has interesting ramifications in other fields, such as Kinetic Theory. In this talk we will present conditions on the density function F_N, on the sphere, under which we can get an ¿almost¿ subaditivity property; i.e. the factor 2 can be replaced with a factor of $1+\epsilon_N$, with $\epsilon_N$ given explicitly and going to zero. The main tools to be used in order to proved this result are an entropy conservation extension of F_N to $\mathbb{R}^N$ together with comparison of appropriate transportation distances such as the entropy, Fisher information and Wasserstein distance between the marginal of the original density and that of the extension.

  • Description: "Scalar Field/Waves as Dark Matter in the Universe" The existence of Dark Matter in the universe is one of the biggest problems in cosmology. The Cold Dark Matter (CDM) model has been able to explain in a simple manner the observed universe at big scales but it has shown some difficulties in to explain some observed phenomena at small scales in galaxies. A great effort to solve these discrepancies has been carried out in the last time. Nevertheless, there are other possibilities. In this talk we present some of the advances of the hypothesis of a Scalar Field/wave as dark matter and show that this candidate behaves exactly in the same way as CDM at big scales but it can solve some of the problems of CDM at small scales.

  • Contact: Perry, Beth Monique
  • Description: An Audiovisualities Lab event. This October, Duke will be hosting Chinese documentary filmmaker Wu Wenguang and three of his fellow documentarians for a two-week residency and the launch of a new digital oral history collection. Wu Wenguang is one of the founding figures of the Chinese independent documentary film movement. His groundbreaking debut film, Bumming in Beijing (1990), portrayed with unscripted candor the disillusionment of five young Chinese artists in the wake of the Tiananmen Square student protests in 1989. One of Wu¿s recent endeavors is the Memory Project, a wide-ranging documentary history of China¿s Great Famine (1958-1961), featuring interviews with thousands of famine survivors. The interviews shine a light on one of modern China¿s most traumatic episodes. Tens of millions of Chinese citizens died during the Great Famine years as a result of economic and social policies enacted under Mao Zedong¿s Great Leap Forward campaign. The famine and resulting death toll are often glossed over in official Chinese state history.

  • Description: FILM SCREENING: "Kiss Me Deadly" (Robert Aldrich, 1955, 106 min, USA, in English, B/W, Blu-Ray) / In this atomic adaptation of Mickey Spillane's novel, directed by Robert Aldrich, the good manners of the 1950s are blown to smithereens. Ralph Meeker stars as snarling private dick Mike Hammer, whose decision one dark, lonely night to pick up a hitchhiking woman sends him down some terrifying byways. Brazen and bleak, "Kiss Me Deadly" is a film noir masterwork as well as an essential piece of Cold War paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema. / Trailer: http://www.criterion.com/films/27620-kiss-me-deadly

  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A.

  • Location: Physics 128
  • Contact: Paul, Cristin
  • Description: One of the most exciting possibilities in cosmic ray research is the potential to discover new phenomena. A number of elementary particles were discovered in cosmic rays before modern-day accelerators became available to study their detailed properties. In spite of the rapid progress in physics over the last century, the possible presence of cosmological antimatter and the nature of dark matter in the universe remain mysteries. Balloon-borne and space based instruments configured with particle detectors have been flown to search for these exotic sources, and to explore possible limits to particle acceleration in supernova. They have also been used to study cosmic-ray origin, acceleration and propagation. Recent results, their implications, and the outlook for future experiments will be presented. Faculty Host: Kate Scholberg. Refreshments will be served before and after the event in room 128.

  • Contact: None
  • Description: Oron Catts is an artist, researcher and curator whose pioneering work with the Tissue Culture and Art Project, which he established in 1996, is considered a leading biological art project. In 2000 he co-founded SymbioticA, an artistic research center. Under Catts' leadership, SymbioticA has gone on to win the Prix Arts Electronica Golden Nica in Hybrid Art (2007), the WA Premier Science Award (2008) and became a Centre for Excellence in 2008. In 2009 Catts was recognized by Thames & Hudson's "60 Innovators Shaping our Creative Future" book in the category "Beyond Design", and by Icon Magazine (UK) as one of the top 20 Designers, "making the future and transforming the way we work." Catts' interest is Life; more specifically the shifting relations and perceptions of life in the light of new knowledge and its applications. Often working in collaboration with other artists (mainly Dr. Ionat Zurr) and scientists, Catts has developed a body of work that speaks volumes about the need for new cultural articulation of evolving concepts of life. Catts' ideas and projects reach beyond the confines of art; his work is often cited as inspiration to diverse areas such as new materials, textiles, design, architecture, ethics, fiction, and food.

  • Location: Bryan Center Griffith Film Theater
  • Cost: Free and Open to the Public
  • Contact: Okazaki, Hank
  • Description: FILM SCREENING: "Nostalghia" (Andrei Tarkovsky, 1983, 125 min, Soviet Union and Italy, in Russian and Italian w/ English subtitles, B/W and Color, Blu-Ray) / "I wanted the film to be about the fatal attachment of Russians to their national roots," Andrei Tarkovsky wrote of "Nostalghia", his first production outside the Soviet Union. One of Tarkovsky's most enigmatic creations, it is also one of his most personal - a film of stark symbols and mesmerizing long takes whose nearly agonizing picture of personal loss is tempered by the painterly beauty of its compositions. The story, co-written with frequent Antonioni collaborator Tonino Guerra, traces the alienation of a Soviet poet, trapped by fame and an unhappy marriage, who travels to Italy to research the life of an 18th century Russian composer. There he meets a local pariah who declares that the world is coming to an end - a prophecy he finds curiously more alluring than the possibility of a dead-end future. / Awarded the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, the prize for best director, the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize, and the Grand Prix du Cinéma de Creation at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival! / Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_a00N9fU1Mk

  • Location: Nasher Museum of Art
  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A.

  • Location: Gross Hall 330

  • Description: "Geometric and Topological Analysis of Musical Audio Data" Researchers in the Music Information Retrieval (MIR) community have traditionally focused heavily on methods derived from Fourier and wavelet analysis for applications such as machine music genre classification, cover song identification, and artist identification. In this work we show the power of interpreting musical audio sequences as geometric curves in high dimensions in addition to the more traditional analysis techniques, and we explore the added value of this representation. In particular, we show how summarizing a delay embedding of a raw audio signal with "community accepted features" (CAFs) based on the Short-Time Fourier Transform stabilizes these curves and allows both global musical phenomena, such as chorus/verse loops and bridges, and local musical phenomena, such as vibrato, beats, and clicks, to be described geometrically. We then show how tools from topological data analysis (TDA) can be used to quantify these geometric features on the high dimensional curves, and we devise learning schemes based on these features to improve music classification. This is joint work with Paul Bendich, Marshall Ratliff, Derrick Nowak, and John Harer. Please come and enjoy lots of fun music and animations during this talk. Also please visit an app I developed out of this work at http://www.loopditty.net to visualize any song on soundcloud.com using our technique.

  • Location: Perkins Library 118
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Active learning promotes critical thought, collaboration, and engagement with course materials. Students are asked to set memorization aside, in order to share ideas with colleagues, analyze an argument, and apply theories to real-world situations. We will explore techniques that encourage discussion, problem solving, and critical analysis. Whether your course is a large lecture section or a small seminar, you will benefit from these ideas to increase student participation. Join CIT consultants and faculty members for lively discussions of teaching ideas and methods. These informal seminars will include activities and examples to get you thinking about possible changes in your classroom.

  • Location: SSRI A103 , Erwin Mill Building
  • Contact: Bowes, Vickie
  • Description: ABSTRACT: A broad literature in social psychology has established that respondents react negatively when women engage in traditionally masculine actions in the workplace (Heilman and Chen 2005; Heilman, Wallen, Fuchs, and Tamkins 2004; Rudman and Glick 1999; Rudman 1998; Rudman and Glick 2001; Bowles, Babcock, and Lai 2006; Amanatullah and Morris 2010). This negative reaction is described as a "backlash effect." In this study, I test two hypotheses. First, I examine if resumes that use masculine adjectives inspire backlash against female job applicants in a laboratory setting and if this backlash varies by the sexual orientation of the applicant. Second, I take the question of backlash outside of a laboratory environment to see if real employers have the same response as respondents in a laboratory to traditionally masculine actions.

  • Location: Allen 328 , English Department Lounge
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The Conversions: Medieval and Modern working group aims to complement the upcoming Conversions lecture series co-sponsored by the Department of English and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Duke. In its most basic sense, the term conversion (Lat., conversio) signifies a reversal, a change of direction. Yet the change or turn-around that is conversion has meant many different things in different cultures and across a wide range of discourses from logic to lyric poetry, theology to politics. Our fall meetings will be devoted primarily to exploring major texts in the history of conversion and some contemporary critical and theoretical perspectives. Our spring meetings will be linked more specifically to guest lecturers¿ topics and texts, which we will explore in preparation for their visits. The working group welcomes the full range of disciplinary points of view. (As attending the working group will provide credit for the graduate certificate in medieval and renaissance studies, we will particularly encourage active participation by graduate students intent on integrating the broad, interdisciplinary conversations that are ongoing throughout Duke into their own research.) Please see the website for more information!

The goal of AAC Peer Advising faculty dinners is to provide a comfortable and informal setting where first-years can get to know these professors on a more personal level and build mentor relationships early on in their college careers. Among other topics, the professors will discuss the value of getting to know faculty in large lecture classes and how students can do this.

  • Location: Nasher Museum of Art
  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A. Nasher and David Haemisegger, the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation, Parker and Otis, Lisa Lowenthal Pruzan and Jonathan Pruzan, Mindy and Guy Solie, Richard Tigner, Carolyn Aaronson, Eunice and Herman Grossman, Caroline and Arthur Rogers, and Angela O.

  • Location: Searle Center Lecture Hall
  • Cost: No cost
  • Contact: Marion, Eve
  • Description: The publication of ¿Our Stolen Future¿ helped to spur research on endocrine disrupting contaminants (EDCs) and investigating their potential affects on human health and development. In the 1990s, the Environmental Protection Agency developed an Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program to evaluate pesticides and chemicals in commerce for their ability to disrupt the endocrine system. In classical toxicology research, it is often assumed that increased exposures will correlate with an increase in effect or toxicity. However, some research studies have challenged this dogma, suggesting that some EDCs can have greater effects at low doses relative to high doses, an effect known as a non-monotonic dose response (NMDR). Interpretation of these results is challenging, particularly within regulatory landscapes and risk assessment frameworks that operate under the assumption of a linear relationship between exposure dose and adverse effect. In 2013, EPA charged a group of scientists to review the published scientific literature and write a paper on the state of the science on NMDRs. One of the key goals of this exercise was to identify whether or not NMDRs occur, and if so, under what conditions. A draft paper was written by the EPA and then reviewed by the National Academy of Sciences in 2014. This symposium will highlight several studies on NMDRs, and discuss the findings of both the EPA paper and NAS evaluation of this report.

  • Description: In a recent collaboration with researchers from Indiana University, I have begun exploring ways to use natural language terms and phrases to detect broad disease categories in the titles of articles from the PubMed database. An early attempt classifies four million papers written in five different languages over the last 50 years into nine broad disease categories, visualizing the results as flows and streams to explore the changing focus of medical research over time. This early project was submitted as an entry to the ACM Web Science 2014 Conference, where it received an award as a top student submission. Future work includes refining disease detection with more sophisticated text and data mining, as well as developing new visual interfaces to the results.

  • Location: Physics 119
  • Contact: Brown, Monique
  • Description: "The fluid dynamics of jellyfish swimming and feeding" The jellyfish has been the subject of numerous mathematical and physical studies ranging from the discovery of reentry phenomenon in electrophysiology to the development of axisymmetric methods for solving fluid-structure interaction problems. In this presentation, we develop and test mathematical models describing the pulsing dynamics and the resulting fluid flow generated by the benthic upside down jellyfish, Cassiopea spp., and the pelagic moon jellyfish, Aurelia spp. The kinematics of contraction and distributions of pulse frequencies were obtained from videos and used as inputs into numerical simulations. Particle image velocimetry was used to obtain spatially and temporally resolved flow fields experimentally. The immersed boundary method was then used to solve the fluid-structure interaction problem and explore how changes in morphology and pulsing dynamics alter the resulting fluid flow. For Cassiopea, significant mixing occurs around and directly above the oral arms and secondary mouths. We found good agreement between the numerical simulations and experiments, suggesting that the presence of porous oral arms induce net horizontal flow towards the bell and mixing. For Aurelia, maximum swim speeds are generated when the elastic bell is resonating at its natural frequency. Alternating vortex rings can also enhance swimming speed and efficiency.

She will even tell us how her research could improve food security in places like South Sudan, where farmers have successfully grown Mary's corn in recent years due to a collaboration between Mary and Duke's Divinity School. Join us to connect the dots between healthy seeds and stronger food systems, and to gain a clearer understanding of many scientific and political struggles surrounding corn production.

  • Description: OCCUPY THE IMAGINATION. Tales of Seduction and Resistance. Rodrigo Dorfman / Chile, USA / 2013 / 90 min. Inspired by the uprisings of the Arab Spring and the Occupy Wall Street movement, Durham-based filmmaker Rodrigo Dorfman embarks on an exploration of 1970s Chile, where as a child he witnessed in the streets of Santiago the first peaceful socialist revolution in history. Fascinated by the transformative power of art, Dorfman uncovers the power and legacy of his father¿s controversial book How to Read Donald Duck (written in 1971), which the military junta burned and banned for exposing Disney¿s hidden capitalist messages. But when Occupy Wall Street explodes in New York City, Dorfman, camera in hand, begins a new quest -- for the spirit of the Chilean Revolution in the euphoria of the Occupy Movement. A story of courage, defeat, and resistance, this trans-American film examines whether art and activism can re-awaken our imaginations in a world seduced, and flattened, by neoliberal capitalism.

  • Location: Carolina Theater
  • Cost: $55; $50; $45; $10 Duke students
  • Contact: None
  • Description: After the soundtrack for La Bamba made overnight stars of Los Lobos in the mid-1980s, the East L.A. combo doubled back to its norteño roots, recording the all-Spanish album La Pistola y El Corazón in 1988. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of that GRAMMY-winning masterpiece, Los Lobos will play the entire record live at the Carolina Theatre. Los Lobos are long-standing masters of an adept mix of garage rock, R&B, country, and traditional Mexican music -- "the genius of Los Lobos resides in their innate ability to find the redemptive power of music, no matter the style they choose to play" (All About Jazz). In this unplugged show, essential Los Lobos tunes bookend their performance of La Pistola y El Corazón. "For four decades Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock" (Rolling Stone).

  • Location: Nasher Museum of Art
  • Contact: Livingston, Wendy Hower
  • Description: The Nasher Museum presents a rare glimpse at the later works of Spanish-born artist Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the greatest innovators of 20th-century art in Europe. A contemporary of Picasso as well as a fellow Catalan, Miró was briefly aligned with the Surrealists in the late 1920s in Paris and went on to create a phenomenal pictorial and sculptural universe throughout his six-decade career. Showcasing works of art exclusively drawn from the last 20 years of the artist's life, Miró: The Experience of Seeing will bring an extensive and illuminating body of Miró's work to North Carolina for the first time. Paintings, sculptures and drawings will travel from Spain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid (Museo Reina Sofía). Miró: The Experience of Seeing is organized by the Seattle Art Museum and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. At the Nasher Museum, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is made possible by Marilyn M. Arthur, the Estate of Dorothy Lander, Trent Carmichael, Drs. Victor and Lenore Behar, Deborah DeMott, Nancy A.

  • Description: Romanian violinist Corina Belcea founded her quartet while still a student at the Royal College of Music in London. Twenty years on, the Belcea still play like a "young quartet, seizing the music's energy, shocking us out of our seats with every fortissimo" (Guardian). The Belcea return to Durham with Mozart's last quartet, No. 23, which Alfred Einstein noted "seems to mingle the bliss and sorrow of a farewell to life." From this classical beginning, the Belcea turn to the early romantic "Rosamunde" Quartet of Schubert, written during the turmoil of the composer's final illness. The evening culminates in Brahms' lush and romantic op. 51, no. 1, the first quartet he was willing to publish after destroying his first twenty attempts.
