Enjoying coffee, tea, and chocolate wasn’t always so easy as a quick trip to Trader Joe’s or to the neighborhood café. These treats only became available for the wealthy in 16th-century Europe, a result of globalization and colonization that brought such luxury goods from the Americas, India and Africa. As the pleasures of consumption took off, so did the visual and material culture related to these delicacies.

In this one-hour presentation, we’ll look at the fine and decorative arts surrounding these substances, delighting in European and American paintings that depict the social and sensorial pleasures of imbibing, fine porcelain wares that saw many raised pinky fingers, and caricatures that lampoon these newfangled delights.

Throughout the lecture, art historian Molly Medakovich will interrogate the colonial context of this visual and material history.

Advanced registration and payment required.

Join us for Brooklyn Pizza and a film as we reflect on D-Day. The King Who Fooled Hitler, a landmark movie, breaks a world scoop about the deception that fooled Hitler about the Normandy landings of 1944. In a tale of double agents and decoys, the investigation reveals, for the first time, the identity of the most secret of them all: George VI.

It also uncovers how the Queen and future Queen Elizabeth II were enlisted in the ruse, and how the royal household managed to lose one of Britain’s greatest secrets of WWII.

Pizza at noon and film (60 minutes) will follow.

Advanced payment and registration required.
