CALA FALL 2017 FILM SERIES: FLYING DOWN TO RIO (1933)-Introduction: Patricia Dillon
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

NYU Event Space

LIGHTS, CAMERA, DECO!: A Cinematic Celebration of Art Deco's International Influence. In conjunction with the Art Deco Society of New York. The Art Deco style arguably originated at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925, where it left  a mark on many designers including Cedric Gibbons, art director for the film Grand Hotel. The Art Deco style would appear in over 1500 films—from Metropolis to The Artist—across the following decades. Art Deco was a truly international style, influencing architecture, fashion, and the design of all objects from perfume bottles to cars. Art Deco moved away from the floral, ornamental patterns of the past to the streamlined, modern shapes of the future. At the same time it embraced and exoticized design motifs from Asia, South America, Egypt, and Africa. Art Deco’s clean and geometric lines complemented the black and white movies of the era and created enduring iconic cinematic images. Please join SPS’s Center for Applied Liberal Arts in collaboration with the Art Deco Society of New York this Fall in celebrating Art Deco’s impact on cinema around the world.

EDWARD LUCE
TIME TO START THINKING: AMERICA IN THE AGE OF DESCENT

Time to Start Thinking argues that America is losing its position at the top of the world’s pecking order. Financial Times columnist Edward Luce focuses on key critical issues: the changing structure of the U.S. economy, the polarization of politics, the debilitating effect of the “permanent election campaign,” the challenges involved in the overhaul of the country’s public education system, the desperate situation facing America’s middle class, and the health of American innovation in technology and business. Those unwilling to confront this reality may be tempted to blindly trust in American exceptionalism—but Luce argues that it is American pragmatism that will be the key to securing America’s future, if it is to be secured.
