I am fertile ground

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until Sunday, November 17, 2019

Green-Wood Cemetery, 500 25th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11232 United States

This fall, Green-Wood is thrilled to unveil a site-specific installation in the Cemetery’s Catacombs by acclaimed artist Janine Antoni.

For nearly three decades, Antoni has used the body, most often her own, as a tool and a subject for her artwork. In I am fertile ground, she expands on this theme by using the language of religious icons to pay homage to what she has discovered through her improvisational dance practice. The instinctual ways that the body moves allow it to communicate and express itself, as well as serve as a vehicle for spiritual experiences. Idiosyncratic gestures are contextualized by those that are more recognizable, like hands clasped in prayer. Each work enshrines a gesture, rendering it as both exalted and fragile.

Chipping Away: The Art of Stone Carving

Saturday, September 21, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Have you ever wondered about the thousands of inscriptions on Green-Wood’s gravestones? How were they were carved? What makes some truly spectacular and some not so great? Join us for a unique adventure with John Nash, modern-day stone carver and teacher of lettering and calligraphy. Nash has plied his craft in England and America for decades, inscribing monuments for Westminster Abbey, Harvard University, Yale University, Rhodes House at Oxford, and many other historic sites. He is in New York for a rare visit (he’s completing an inscription at Green-Wood) and will share his insights and expertise on this once-in-a-lifetime tour. Jeff Richman, Green-Wood's historian, will introduce Nash and give context and history as we go along.

Film Screening: Spirit Labour

Saturday, September 21, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Participants will enjoy an outdoor screening of Spirit Labour. In this moving and poetic film, Hugo Glendinning and Adrian Heathfield follow the creative practice of sculptor and performance artist Janine Antoni: her collaborations and conversations with the choreographer Anna Halprin and the writer Hélène Cixous. Spirit Labour traces the trans-generational connections between these artists who work with the female body and the natural elements. It asks: what kind of labor is it, to dedicate your life to working with the movements, expressions and affects of others?

Before our gates open to the general public, birding expert Rob Jett leads these peaceful Sunday morning walking tours to discover the birds that make Green-Wood their home – at least temporarily. By September, offspring of these nesting birds will be on their own. Returning warblers will be in their less flamboyant fall plumage. Large numbers of blackbirds, flycatchers, sparrows, vireos, and swallows will also be passing through. By October, waterfowl are returning, and we’ll look for raptors heading south. November will bring back our overwintering feathered denizens from the north.

Liszt: Poetic and Religious Harmonies

An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until Friday, September 27, 2019

Adam Tendler & Jenny Lin catacombs image

Almost no one plays the complete Poetic and Religious Harmonies by Franz Liszt. Between the sheer finger-bending virtuosity, emotionally-draining intensity, and epic length, each of the ten movements stands as its very own musical monolith. But when experienced all together, the cycle gains an almost mystical transcendence, a spiritual journey from the opening “Invocation,” the meditative glow of “The Blessing of God in Solitude,” the anguish of “Funeral,” and the quiet rapture of “Hymn of Love.” It’s a lot for one pianist to take on, and that’s why we’ve got two of ‘em: keyboard stars Adam Tendler and Jenny Lin, both bringing their unique talents and vision to their respective half of the piece.
