‘Stranger Fruit,’ indeed

first_imgA starlit tree, draped by a quilt, with meaning culled from America’s racism and lynching — and from a Billie Holiday masterwork — has taken roots at Harvard. This tree by artist Sanford Biggers has just been placed for a monthlong viewing in the transept at Memorial Hall and Sanders Theatre.“Constellation (Stranger Fruit)” is what Biggers dubs “a surreal tableau.” The work summons heavenly constellations and patterned 19th century quilts embedded with secret codes, both of which helped to steer escaped slaves north along the Underground Railroad.“This whole notion of navigating the Eastern Seaboard via the stars, as Harriet Tubman did, has been on my mind a lot,” said Biggers of his “tree growing in the cosmos.”“I think of the installation as abstracting history and creating an infinite reflection between stellar constellations and the points on the Underground Railroad.”Boston, a central stop on the network of escape routes and safe houses from the South before the Civil War, suitably fits Biggers’ scheme. Approached last year by the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies to teach a class, Biggers coincidentally was contacted shortly afterward by the Office for the Arts (OfA), which hoped to commission a piece.“So I merged the two,” said Biggers, who became the 2009 Marshall S. Cogan Visiting Artist through the Public Art Program of OfA. Based out of New York, Biggers will join Columbia University’s arts faculty in 2010.“‘Strange Fruit’ is the mantra present in my work because of its historical value in Americana,” he explained. “The tree is a mixed metaphor. It’s not just a tree of death but a tree of life, an axis mundi between heaven and earth.”The exhibit runs until Dec. 2. A conversation with Biggers will take place on Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Sackler Museum, and vocalist Imani Uzuri will perform at the installation site at 4 p.m. on Nov. 18, followed by an informal exchange with the artists.Uzuri will debut two compositions, continuing a collaboration with Biggers that started years ago with a theatrical interpretation of the Abel Meeropol poem “Strange Fruit,” famously sung by Holiday. “She’s the cosmic oracle, a wise chanteuse singing under the tree,” said Biggers.Koto player Sumie Kaneko and Harvard’s own KeyChange will contribute to Biggers’ artistic journey between earthly and heavenly realms.For more information visit the Office for the Arts at Harvard.last_img read more

U.K. investment firm teams up with U.S. storage developer

first_imgU.K. investment firm teams up with U.S. storage developer FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Building on its background developing renewables and natural gas-fired power plants, Chicago- headquartered Hecate Energy joined with London-based investment firm InfraRed Capital Partners to launch a new energy storage joint venture called Hecate Grid LLC that could compete with gas peaker projects in North America.“Energy storage is somewhat of a panacea we’ve been looking for,” Gabriel Wapner, Hecate Energy’s director of development, said in an interview after the companies announced their venture Oct. 16. “It allows us to firm and shift energy, potentially replacing peaking capacity. When we look at peakers on the grid today and see how little they are used, we see storage can serve the role of the peaker while adding value and use.”Hecate Grid will develop, build, own and operate utility-scale energy storage facilities in the U.S. and Canada seeded with an initial portfolio of 126 MWh of operating and contracted storage projects developed by Hecate Energy and another 600 MWh of projects under development.“We believe the time is now to invest in the North American energy storage markets,” Thomas Buss, investment director and transaction lead for InfraRed, said in a news release. While the companies did not disclose the terms of their agreement, InfraRed Capital, which manages more than $10 billion in equity capital, will own a controlling interest in Hecate Grid, Wapner said.The company is eyeing projects across the continent but already has a head start in two key markets: California and Ontario. In California, Hecate Energy has 10-year contracts with Edison International subsidiary Southern California Edison Co. for the 10-MW Hecate Energy Johanna 1 Battery Storage and 5-MW Hecate Energy Johanna 2 Battery Storage arrays. It also has three operating battery storage facilities in Ontario, combining for nearly 15 MW, and another 30-MW project under development.While Hecate Energy is developing large-scale solar, wind and gas projects, the joint venture will focus primarily on stand-alone storage projects, Wapner said, adding that the investment from InfraRed will help Hecate Grid deliver “hundreds of megawatts in the next several years.”More ($): UK investor joins US energy storage developer to compete with gas peakerslast_img read more

The United States, European Union, and Lima Group Reject Fraudulent Venezuela’s Legislative Elections

first_imgBy Steven McLoud/Diálogo December 10, 2020 Following the December 6 vote, which saw the illegitimate Nicolás Maduro regime win a majority in the parliamentary election, the European Union (EU) and the Lima Group, along with the United States, declared they would not recognize the results.According to Venezuela’s electoral council, just 31 percent of 20 million eligible voters participated in the election — less than half the turnout than in the previous National Assembly elections of 2015. In a news conference on December 7, Interim President Juan Guaidó called for a boycott of the vote, declaring it a farce meant to consolidate a dictatorship. He also called on his supporters to participate in a December 12 referendum that will ask citizens whether they reject the results and want a change of government.“They have imprisoned us, they have tortured us, and they have assassinated us, but here we are and here we will be until we see our Venezuela lead to a free, democratic country without dictatorship,” Guaidó said.“The United States, along with numerous other democracies around the world, condemns this charade which failed to meet any minimum standard of credibility,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement on December 7.Josep Borrell, the EU’s top diplomat, echoed those sentiments saying the election “failed to comply with the minimum international standards.” In a statement, EU foreign ministers said on December 7 the vote “failed to comply with the minimum international standards for a credible process and to mobilize the Venezuelan people to participate.” Moreover, the European Council said “Venezuela urgently needs a political solution to end the current impasse and to allow for the delivery of the urgently required humanitarian assistance to its people.”In a written statement, the Lima Group called on the international community to “join in the rejection of the fraudulent elections and support the efforts for the recovery of democracy, the respect of human rights, and the rule of law in Venezuela.” The signatory countries of the Lima Group include Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and Saint Lucia.last_img read more
