Didier Faustino, "Building Intimacy"
Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall
Harvard University Graduate School of Design
48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
Mon., Apr. 11, 2016, 6:308p.m.



For Didier Faustino, the process of the architect, artist, or designer must preserve an engagement with political, social, and cultural issues. Since founding his Bureau des Msarchitectures in 2002, Faustino has developed an expressive multidisciplinary practice in art and architecture that highlights the complex relationship between the body and the spaces it inhabits. By challenging the boundaries of these spaces, his work explores the precarious equilibrium between public and private space, publicity and intimacy. His lecture will feature ten projects chosen to make explicit the issues on which he focuses in his practice; these projects include his under construction building in Mexico and the project Alumnos 47, with which he will explain his method of building intimacy. Faustinos work has been shown in group and solo exhibitions and has received several prizes, including the Acadmie dArchitectures Dejean prize for lifetime achievement in 2010. He currently divides his time among architecture (in Spain, Mexico City, Portugal), art (with exhibitions in Grenoble, London, and Rome), and teaching (AA School, Diploma Unit 2); and he is also editor-in-chief of the French architecture and design magazine CREE.

Pulitzer-prize winning, veteran journalist R. Jeffrey Smith has just completed a two-year investigation into the faltering global effort to control dangerous nuclear explosives.

Quinn Sullivan

5-19-2016

Eight years ago multi-Grammy winning blues guitarist Buddy Guy had a remarkable encounter when eight-year-old guitarist Quinn Sullivan joined him on stage. Guy was so taken with his incredible guitar skills that he invited him to play on his Grammy nominated album Skin Deep (that also included guestperformances from Eric Clapton, Robert Randolph, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi) and tour with him nationally. Quinn's blistering solo on the record was the aptly titled Whose Gonna Fill Those Shoes?
He was soon being invited to perform at festivals, TV and radio programs. So far, he has appeared Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Ellen, Oprah and The Today Show and was featured in Guitar Player and Guitar World magazines. He has been actively building his craft sharing stages nationally with Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang and BB King at iconic venues including the Hollywood Bowl, the Apollo Theater and the Beacon. He received a major honor being the youngest artist to play the world renowned Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and he performed at Eric Claptons Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden last April, along with an all-star lineup.

Now sixteen, Sullivan has an album on SuperStar records, "Getting There." Produced and co-written with Grammy, ASCAP and BMI award winner,Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, BB King), the album will appeal to hard-core blues fans and rock aficionados and to fans craving authentic, guitar driven, grooves and melodies. Quinn, as it happens, is as adept at vocals as he is at making his beloved Stratocaster sing.

John Heithaus of SuperStar Records, says Triple threat artists like Quinn are truly rare. He is a prime example of todays new breed of songwriters, musicians and performers and we have high aspirations for him!
Legendary jazz guitarist John McLaughlin said: Hes unbelievable and he plays just like Jimi (Hendrix)!
Buddy Guy says: You dont come across talent like this every day. People called Ray Charles a genius? I think youve got another one here.

Marc Ford of The Black Crowes
5-11-2016

MARC FORD is one of the most gifted, celebrated and in-demand rock guitarists of his generation. If you know Ford's back story in full, you know it's about a multi-faceted reputation as the fabled lead guitarist with the Black Crowes; at the helm of his own bands such as the Neptune Blues Club and the Sinners; as a vital component of key records and/or tours by acts from Govt. Mule to Izzy Stradlin, from Booker T to Ben Harper; and as the producer of choice for artists such as the great roots-rocker Ryan Bingham and English country-soul talents Phantom Limb.

Ford's early memories were Beatles, Creedence and Simon & Garfunkel albums, and Miracles and Chuck Berry singles. Later came Led Zeppelin and Elton John. "Then I found the first two Jeff Beck records, 'Truth' and 'Beck-Ola,' and wore those out. Then a friend of mine sat me down and put on Band of Gypsys. It scared me to death, it changed everything for me. I was like, 'I didn't know you could do this.'"

After high school, Marc formed his own outfit, "Burning Tree," the acclaimed LA trio whose powerful local reputation led to a deal with Epic and a 1990 album. Noticed by a bunch of Atlanta scenemakers of the day called the "Black Crowes," Ford joined them for 'The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion,' which hit No. 1 and sold two million copies in the US alone as they climbed to the top of the world. His guitars were also front and centre of 1994's 'Amorica' and 'Three Snakes and One Charm.'

In 2014 he delivered what will undoubtedly stand as one of the finest Americana albums of the decade, "Holy Ghost." It has plenty of space for Ford to demonstrate that his incredible guitar sorcery. Reinvention is an overused word in the creative arts, but 'Holy Ghost' overflows with subtle and surprising pleasures, liberal use of pedal steel, Fender Rhodes, mellotron and banjo, and the best songwriting of Ford's career. It shows off an artist refreshed and refuelled, taking life at a better pace at home in California these days.

This show, promoting that album, is with his own band, the Neptune Blues Club and is another stunning feather in Marc Ford's already colorful hat.

Melissa Ferrick

4-29-2016

Melissa Ferricks 12th original album is a coming home. She has arrived in a place musically that is both familiar and new. Melissa is a better writer, engineer, producer, and overall artist. The self-titled album is, in many ways, a new beginning for Ferrick. Written in just over a year, recorded at home, and released on her own relaunched label, "Right On Records," Melissa Ferrick has given us a simple, eloquent and honest acoustic album with an undeniable level of maturity. For long-time fans, this will be a welcome new arrival. For those who are just discovering Ferrick, this is a superb way to be introduced. A completely solo effort in its process, creation and release, Melissa Ferrick is marking the middle of her career with a perfect return to songwriting, and to herself.

Ferrick's life has always been an open book. Signed to Atlantic Records in the mid-'90s, she helped represent a new wave of alt-rock females, like Liz Phair, PJ Harvey and college-mate Paula Cole, who sang about womanhood with sharp, unchecked honesty. Morrissey proved an early champion when he personally invited her to tour as his opening act, and Ferrick eventually went on to found her own label and release a number of albums in which she played every instrument herself. Her life took dips and turns along the way, and she chronicled every detail in her songwriting amidst the warm backdrop of pedal-steel guitars and rootsy harmonies.

"Ferrick released one of the years most singular albums...Ferricks self-titled latest is worth finding if you missed it. Melissa Ferrick is an unfussy record built around her prowess on guitar, with her voice expressive and closely miked." - James Reed: Boston Globe

"Melissa has simply delivered an eloquent and honest acoustic album with an undeniable level of maturity." - Charlotte Robinson: Huffington Post

"Ferrick punches out a perfect pop hook with her sublime cadence and ace acoustic guitar strumming. She unwinds the tale of an August night when the stars exalted the spirits of a whole seaside town - and helped Ferrick get good with getting old." - Jeb Gottleib: The Boston Herald

Conference: "Voices and Visions Of St. Louis: Past, Present, Future" (III)
Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall
Harvard University Graduate School of Design
48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
Fri., Apr. 1, 2016, 9a.m.5p.m.

From the Civil War to the recent troubles in Ferguson, St. Louis, Missouri is a city that has long been a site for conflict, division, and violence. It also has hosted an array of legal, political, social, and design experiments intended to transcend its contested present and past. With this forum, jointly mounted with the Sam Foxx School of Design at Washington University, we seek to stimulate a conversation about the citys history and its present conditions, using methodologies and questions drawn from architecture, design, and planning as well as the arts, humanities and social sciences. The aim is to explore and debate issues of injustice, inequality, and racial exclusion in ways that have broader resonance for urban America and will open new terrains for constructive action. Topics include the history of modernist planning, the urban impacts of post-civil war politics and governance, the social and spatial correlates of racial exclusion, and the planning and design responses that have been proposed to counter these conditions. Organized by Diane Davis, chair of the Urban Design and Planning Department. Confirmed speakers include Joseph Heathcott, Jamillah Nasheed, Colin Gordon, Eric Mumford, Kenneth Reardon, Denise Ward-Brown, Heather Woofter, Patty Heyda, and Jason Purnell, among others. Open to the public with a keynote on Wednesday evening and subsequent panels showcasing the perspectives of a wide array of actors and institutions who have made cities like St. Louis what they are today; closing on Friday with an array of GSD-based exhibitions, projects, and presentations from GSD students and faculty.
