  • How does the architecture of the museum drive new relationships between artists, architects, curators, and their diverse audiences? Join artist Rachel Rose and award-winning architects Preston Scott Cohen, Gerald M. McCue Professor in Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and Florian Idenburg, cofounder of architecture firm SO – IL, for a panel discussion about contemporary art and architecture.

    Moderated by Troy Conrad Therrien, Curator, Architecture and Digital Initiatives, the panelists will discuss the ways in which these critical dialogues are transforming museums and cultivating new projects. The conversation will highlight the pioneering projects of Cohen and Idenburg—most notably the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California, Davis—and Rose’s video installations within museum contexts.

    A reception and book signing will follow the discussion. Copies of SO – IL’s first-ever publication Solid Objectives: Order, Edge, Aura and Preston Scott Cohen’s Lightfall: Genealogy of a Museum: Herta and Paul Amir Building, Tel Aviv Museum of Art will be available for sale.

    Tickets: $12, $10 members, $5 students

    Presented with Tel Aviv Museum of Art American Friends, Harvard Graduate School of Design and Harvard Alumni Architecture and Urban Society

  • Harvardwood Presents: JOHN DOYLE interviewed by JOHN WEIDMAN

    Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 06:30 PM · $15.00 USD

    Cost: $5 for dues-paying Harvardwood members (and their guests); $15 for all others.

    Advance registration is REQUIRED—there will be NO tickets available at the door. This is a joint event with the Dramatists Guild, with half the seats reserved for the Guild and half for Harvardwood, so we expect this event to sell out very early. (If you're a member of the Dramatists Guild you may be able to attend for free by registering through the Guild.)

    The title really says it all—a conversation between two of the most interesting people in the American theater.

    john-doyle.jpgJohn Doyle is perhaps most widely known for his series of innovative revivals of Sondheim musicals, notably Sweeney Todd (Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards, Best Director of a Musical), Company (Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Awards, Best Revival of a Musical), Passion, and, most recently, Pacific Overtures. Other acclaimed productions have included The Color Purple (Tony Award, Best Revival of a Musical; Drama Desk Award, Best Director of a Musical), The Visit, and Rodgers and Hammerstein's Allegro.  He has directed as well at the Metropolitan Opera and has been the Artistic Director of four theater companies in the U.K., where his credits ranged from Shakespeare to Brecht to Fiddler on the Roof.  Since 2016 he has been the Artistic Director of the Classic Stage Company in New York, where most recently he directed As You Like It.

    john_weidman.jpegJohn Weidman has collaborated with Stephen Sondheim three times, writing the books for Pacific Overtures, Assassins (Tony Award, Best Musical Revival), and Road Show.  He also wrote the books for, among others, Contact (Tony Award, Best Musical), co-created with Susan Stroman, and Big, as well as the new book, co-authored with Timothy Crouse, for Anything Goes (Tony Award, Best Musical Revival; Olivier Award, Best Musical Production).  He has been a writer for Sesame Street since 1986, where he has collected more than a dozen Emmy Awards. From 1999 to 2009 he was President of the Dramatists Guild, and is now President of the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund.  (And he's a Harvard alum!)

    Special thanks to the Dramatists Guild and to Andy Goodwin and the Plymouth Hill Foundation.

  • Harvardwood Masterclass: Acquiring Story Rights for Producers & Writers

    Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 07:30 PM · $15.00 USD
    Los Angeles Film School in Los Angeles, CA

    So you’ve read an article, graphic novel, book or screenplay, or found someone with a life story to tell? Acquiring story rights or understanding keys issues involved in tying them up is an essential skill for producers and writers - and existing stories are often more attractive to studios or financiers, as well as to an agent.

    With 25 years of film studio experience at Columbia and Fox, Jack Monderer AB '82 managed hundreds of rights situations of every conceivable type. As a producer or writer, when and how do you initiate a rights agreement? How much of an agreement do you need? Is there any way to price a particular type of material? Come join us as Jack shares his experience and gives guidance on these and other story rights issues.

    Masterclasses are only open to dues-current Harvardwood Full Members. You must be logged in to the site to access the RSVP link below. Join or renew your membership.

    Jack Monderer AB '82

    Jack Monderer has several decades of experience as the key manager and analyst in Business and Legal affairs for film development projects at Fox and Columbia. He recently completed 20 years at the Fox film group, administering all talent deals and property rights for the film projects at Fox, Fox 2000, Fox Searchlight, Fox Animation and Fox International Productions. Projects he has managed from development through production include everything from franchises like Ghostbusters, X-Men, Avatar and Ice Age, to specialty films like Slumdog Millionaire and Grand Budapest Hotel.


    NOTE: Harvardwood is instituting a new late-arrival policy. Those who arrive over 15 minutes past the event's listed starting time will not be admitted. THIS EVENT WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 7:30PM.
