La Maison Française at the French Embassy Hosts DC Debut of ‘Night of Ideas,’ Featuring Keynote Speaker Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Note: The Night of Ideas, originally scheduled at the Hirshhorn Museum, has been moved to La Maison Française due to the government shutdown.
The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden will partner with the French Embassy and the Judy and Peter Blum-Kovler Foundation to present the first Washington, D.C., edition of the Night of Ideas, a global marathon of ideas that will activate La Maison Française with talks and performances by today’s leading thinkers and creators, Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019, 6:30 p.m.–12 midnight. For one night only, guests will have the unique opportunity to hear from over 70 philosophers, sociologists, economists, musicians, artists and authors from the Washington, D.C., area and around the world.
“Facing Our Time” through a diverse range of topics, including civil rights, digital privacy, art and advocacy, economics, feminist philosophy, art history and more. A keynote address will be delivered by renowned Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, whose internationally acclaimed books, including Purple Hibiscus (2003), Half of a Yellow Sun (2006), Americanah (2013), We Should All Be Feminists (2014) and most recently, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions (2017), have been credited for starting a worldwide conversation about feminism.
“The Night of Ideas is a one-of-a-kind worldwide event, a global ‘marathon’ of ideas,” said French Ambassador Gérard Araud. “For this first edition in Washington, D.C., we have gathered an exceptional group of thinkers, musicians, performers and artists to forge links and provoke ideas that will resonate throughout the night.”
Participants will enjoy thought-provoking insights from luminaries including art critic, curator and Marcel Duchamp expert Bernard Marcadé; French philosopher Manon Garcia; artificial intelligence specialist Eric Gaussier; Senegalese economist and writer Felwine Sarr; author and national correspondent for The Atlantic Franklin Foer; privacy and public policy expert Dipayan Ghosh; the George Washington University Debate & Literary Society; and Smithsonian Year of Music co-curator Huib Schippers.
Dynamic performances from French visual artist Frédéric Nauczyciel and American voguing performer Marquis Revlon’s Marching Band Baltimore Project will punctuate the beginning and end of the event. The night will also include an interactive poetry performance by Les Souffleurs commandos poétiques, an instrumental interpretation of paintings into music by violinist David Schulman and a spoken word presentation by poet Charity Blackwell.

Zenith Gallery Presents:
Museum Studies II: Honoring the Female Perspective
Enlightenment, 36” x 34”, oil on linen
Paintings by Bradley Stevens
December 7, 2018 – January 19, 2019
Opening Reception to Meet the Artist:
December 7th, 5-8pm
December 8th, 2-6pm, Gallery Talk at 3pm
1429 Iris St NW Washington DC 20012
In this new series of paintings, Bradley Stevens honors the artists who have influenced him and the museum-goers,in this case, all women––whom he sees as the vanguard of art, culture, and progress in these times.
By returning to his theme of museum interiors, Stevens relives his student years copying Master paintings at the National Gallery of Art and implements the lessons these artists have taught him. With his mastery of color, composition, and gesture, he lures us into the gallery and creates the intimacy of experiencing art. Inspired by the resurgence of the women’s movement, he has chosen to feature women as advocates of these hallowed museum spaces. Their poses and expressions reveal complete captivation with and immersion in the art, such that the physical and psychological act of “looking” is the subject.
Stevens’ introspective museum studies are a meditation on the enduring power of art to educate, inspire, and transcend, and on women’s leadership to protect its place in our society.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 12 – 6pm, or by appointment
