The Case for Community Policing: Lecture by Dave Cazeau

The Case for Community Policing: Lecture by Dave Cazeau

Wednesday, July 26, 2017
6:30-8:30pm

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10035 

A Century of Dissent at Hunter East Harlem Gallery is thrilled to host THE CASE FOR COMMUNITY POLICING, a lecture by Dave Cazeau, Phd Candidate at the Graduate Center, CUNY. 

The police department in the United States has historically represented the most oppressive aspects of the country, demonstrated through its treatment of African American and black citizens. The historical approach to law enforcement has been informed by a perspective provided by the wealthier class, which largely sought to maintain their status of privilege in society at the expense of the poor minorities in the country dating back to the antebellum era. Looking at the organization of the police department (PD) through institutional theory, we see that the legitimacy that the organization sought came from the wealthier class, who historically informed and supported local police agendas. Given the current climate, where police reform is a more popularized initiative, community policing, a more socially inclusive approach to law enforcement is explored and suggested for a redefinition of the legitimacy sought by PDs, a legitimacy that will be given its social context in a country where the racial and ethnic demographics are changing.

Flux Factory: Most of a Year in Most of a Day

Flux Factory: Most of a Year in Most of a Day
or Going Places, Doing Stuff (All the Stuff)
aka Collective Insanity

Organized by Christina Freeman, Flux Factory Artist-in-Residence

Sunday, May 28, 2017
9am–5pm

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10035

In August 1993, seven artists rented part of the second floor of a former spice factory next to the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The 1,800 square-foot space, for which they paid $1,000 per month, had no dividing walls and the only source of running water was a slop sink. The group came together as an informal artist collective to create an alternative platform to the commercial gallery scene. Twenty-four years later, Flux Factory lives on in its third location, an 8,000-square-foot, former greeting-card factory in Long Island City, providing studios for twenty local and international artists.

Temporarily relocating to the Hunter East Harlem Gallery for this one-day event, Flux Factory will publicly perform a year’s worth of collective practices in 8 hours: 52 Monday Meetings, 30 Fluxhibitions,12 Flux Thursdays, 10 Fluxakutchas, 1 Fluxgiving, and 1 Fluxmas.  Cameos by WFLX Flux Factory Radio, Cinema Flux, and Friends of Flux.

By making otherwise internal practices public, this performance will propose the following questions: In a capitalist system, is working collectively an inherently political gesture? Can twenty artists from different parts of the world agree on anything? Why is fun important? What does it mean to be Fluxie? What exactly is a shituation? Why is a flamingo such a great mascot?

For the event at HEHG, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has invited some of their poets to perform written works followed by an open-mic slam session, open to anyone interested in the art form.

Carnival of the Animals: A Night of Experimental Music

Friday, May 19, 2017
7–9pm

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
2180 3rd Avenue
New York, NY 10035


Please join us for a contemporary, musical exploration of the history and spirit of The Incoherents. Comprising French classical music, jazz, musical theatre and collaborative sound, these works employ parody, audience participation, electronics and improvisation to challenge virtuosic notions of performance, coherency of genre and academic musical conventions. This diverse suite of performances takes its title from French Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ work -- who uses musical characterizations of “wild beasts” and satire -- and is animated by the music’s playfulness and disregard for established musical practices.

Curated and Organized by Irini Zervas.

Performances by:
Astrid Kuljanic, vocalist, arranger and composer
Emily Rose Simons, composer, lyricist and comedienne
Hila Zamir, classical clarinetist
Marianela Torres, classical pianist
Dan Scofield, Saxophonist with Will Glass on drums
