> GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO NYC ARTS.

ON TONIGHT'S PROGRAM, NYC ARTS VISITS A UNIQUE DESTINATION FOR ARTS AND CULTURE WHICH IS JUST A FEW HOURS OUTSIDE THE CITY.

WHILE POPULAR REFERENCE TO THE HAMPTONS MIGHT CONJURE UP A RETREAT FOR THE RICH AND FAMOUS ALONG WITH VISIONS OF ITS BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, IT HAS BEEN THE HOME AND INSPIRATION TO MANY ARTISTS ON THE LONG ISLAND'S EAST END.

THE COMMUNITY IS AN ECLECTIC MITCH IN WHICH WRITERS AND PAINTERS SHARE THE SAME VILLAGES WITH LOBSTER MEN AND ORDINARY FOLK.

GUILD HALL IS LOCATED IN EAST HAMPTON.

IT HOUSES A MUSEUM, A THEATER AND A COMMUNITY CENTER THAT ARE ACTIVE YEAR ROUND.

IT'S A PLACE WHERE WRITERS, DANCERS, MUSICIANS, EVEN COMEDIANS CAN TRY OUT NEW WORK.

AND ITS ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM HAS INTERNATIONAL APPEAL.

WE HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK WITH GUILD HALL'S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

♪♪

WHILE GUILD HALL IS CENTERED IN THE VILLAGE OF EAST HAMPTON, IT REALLY SERVICES ALL OF THE HAMPTONS.

IT IS A YEAR ROUND CENTER WHERE WE HAVE PERFORMANCES, WE HAVE LIVE MUSIC, EXHIBITIONS.

WE HAVE STUDENT PROGRAMS.

IT WAS ESTABLISHED AS A PLACE FOR THE COMMUNITY TO GATHER.

IT WAS ALMOST LIKE A TOWN HALL FOR THE ARTS.

SO IT HAD A VERY CIVIC MINDED MISSION FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.

NOT ONLY WAS IT A PLACE TO PRESENT THE ARTS, BUT IT WAS ALSO A PLACE WHERE THE COMMUNITY COULD PARTICIPATE IN THE ARTS, EITHER THROUGH SHOWING THEIR WORK ON THE WALL OR PERFORMING ON STAGE.

IT WAS ACTUALLY ONE OF THE FIRST MULTIDISCIPLINARY CENTERS IN THE COUNTRY.

REALLY FORMED AT A TIME WHEN THE CONCEPT FOR PUTTING VARIOUS ART FORMS TOGETHER WASN'T THAT POPULAR.

IT DIDN'T EXIST YET.

AS MUCH EFFORT THAT YOU PUT TO GETTING INTO THIS THEATER, VERY SOON WE GOTTA GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE.

YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN THE AISLE GOING, WHY CAN'T THESE PEOPLE MOVE?

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM PEOPLE CAN'T MOVE?

IN RECENT HISTORY, WE HAVE HAD PEOPLE LIKE MANDY GONZALEZ STARTING IN 'HAMILTON' RIGHT NOW FOR AN EVENING OF SONG.

WE HAD BIBI NEWWIRTH ON STAGE.

J.B. SMOOTH DOING COMEDY.

WE HAD POLABIS DANCING ON OUR STAGE.

♪♪ MISTY COPELAND TALK ABOUT DANCE AS A CRAFT.

IT'S INCREDIBLE TO BE IN A COMPANY WITH SO MUCH TALENT AND TO JUST BE ABLE TO POP YOUR HEAD INTO A REHEARSAL AND BE INSPIRED AND STEAL THINGS FROM PEOPLE.

I LIKE HOW SHE DID THAT.

I'M GOING TO TAKE THAT AND USE THAT.

GUILD HALL IS THIS KIND OF TOWN HALL FOR THE COMMUNITY.

IT'S A PLACE WHERE A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS HAPPEN, WHETHER IT'S RELATED TO THE ENVIRONMENT OR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE VILLAGE.

THE HAMPTONS INSTITUTE WAS FOUNDED IN 2009 AS A SERIES OF CONVERSATIONS THAT WOULD TACKLE CONTEMPORARY ISSUES BE THEY ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL OR POLITICAL.

AND THE SERIES NOW IS CURATED BY OUR PRESIDENT ALEC BALDWIN.

I THINK THAT THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT WAR AND PEACE, THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT THE GROWING INEQUALITY IN THIS COUNTRY, WHO CARE ABOUT RACIAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE, WHO CARE ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE, THE FATE OF THE PLANET, ARE NOT A FRINGE MINORITY.

WE COLLABORATE WITH A LOT OF OTHER CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS.

IN FACT, WE ARE FORMING THE HAMPTONS ARTS NETWORK, WHICH INCLUDES 19 OTHER ARTS AND CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS ON THE EAST END.

ONE OF THOSE IS THE HAMPTONS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.

EVER SUMMER WE OFFER A STUDENT FILM CAMP, LIKE A BOOT CAMP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.

VERY EXCITING.

THEY SHOOT THE FILMS ON SITE AND EDIT THEM.

CREATE AN END POINT AND AN OUT POINT.

WE HAVE A SCREENING, RED CARPET FOR THEM IN THE THEATER.

THE GUILD HALL MUSEUM HAS RECENTLY HAD AN EXHIBITION CALL ED TARYN SIMON THE INNOCENT WHICH FACES LARGE SCALE PHOTOGRAPHS OF MEN WRONGFULLY CONVICT AND SERVED SUBSTANTIAL PRISON TIME BEFORE THEY WERE LATER EXONERATED THROUGH DNA EVIDENCE.

THE PORTRAITS SHOW THE MEN EITHER AT THE SITE OF THEIR ARREST, THE SITE OF THEIR ALIBI, SOME CASES THE SITE OF THE CRIME.

THEY REALLY GIVE THE NARRATIVE OF THESE MEN AND WHAT WAS LOST TO THEM BY SERVING THESE SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS OF PRISON TIME AND HOW THEIR WRONGFUL CONVICTION CAME ABOUT THROUGH A SYSTEM THAT IS FLAWED.

WHEN YOU DECIDE TO TRANSFORM A SCHOOL BUS INTO A TRAVELING ART INSTALLATION, PEOPLE ARE NATURALLY GOING TO HAVE SOME QUESTIONS.

THE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM BEGAN IN 2016.

IT WAS A WAY TO BRING YOUNG ARTISTS OUT TO THE COMMUNITY WHO MIGHT OTHERWISE FIND IT HARD TO FIND SPACE TO LIVE HERE AND FIND A STIPEND THAT WOULD ALLOW THEM TO BE IN THE COMMUNITY AND CREATE THEIR WORK.

WE HAVE HAD WRITERS.

WE HAVE HAD CONCERT PIANISTS, FILMMAKERS WHO THEN SPEND TIME IN THE COMMUNITY INTRODUCED TO MEMBERS OF OUR ACADEMY AND MEMBERS OF THE ART WORLD OUT HERE WHO MAY ENABLE THEM ENTRY INTO A VERY ESTABLISHED AND SUCCESSFUL GROUP.

I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE ARTISTS IN ADVISORY AND LEADERSHIP ROLES WITHIN THE INSTITUTION TO REALLY LET ARTISTS GUIDE US, ADVICE US, SHAPE THE CONTENT AND PROGRAM OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.

THAT'S AT THE HEART OF GUILD HALL.

THE MISSION HAS BEEN PRETTY FOCUSED FOR OVER 80 YEARS.

I WOULD SAY GUILD HALL HAS BEEN TRUE TO THIS IDEA THAT IT STANDS AS A CULTURAL CENTER FOR THE COMMUNITY WHERE THE COMMUNITY IS BOTH INVITED IN TO SEE THE WORK OF OTHER ARTISTS AND ALSO INVITED IN AS ARTISTS THEMSELVES AND PERFORMERS THEMSELVES.

♪♪

> COMPOSER, PIANIST AND MacARTHUR FELLOW, VIJAY IYER IS RESPECTED AS ONE OF THE FOREMOST JAZZ PIANISTS OF HIS GENERATION, HE IS EQUALLY AT HOME COMPOSING FOR STRING QUARTETS AND ELECTRONIC MEDIA.

HE HAS WRITTEN MUSIC SPANNING SEVERAL GENRES FOR ORCHESTRA, FILMMAKERS AND POETS.

HE BRINGS A SPIRIT OF EXPERIMENTATION TO ALL OF HIS PROJECTS.

HE WILL PERFORM AT THE BRICK JAZZ FESTIVAL MARATHON IN BROOKLYN.

IN ADDITION, THE NEW WORK HE HAS COMPOSED WILL MAKE ITS NEW YORK PREMIERE AT CARNEGIE HALL IN A PERFORMANCE BY THE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA.

NYC ARTS SPOKE WITH IYER IN ONE OF HIS MOST FAVORITE PLACES, THE MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS GALLERY AT THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART.

♪♪

MY NAME IS VIJAY IYER.

I LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY.

I MAKE MUSIC.

THIS SPACE HAS A NUMBER OF ANCESTORS OF MY INSTRUMENT OF CHOICE.

IT'S GOOD TO GET TO KNOW THEM A LITTLE.

♪♪ I ALSO PLAYED VIOLIN FOR A LONG TIME.

THE STRING INSTRUMENTS HERE WITH INTERESTING.

I'M INTERESTED IN INSTRUMENTS FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD.

MY HERITAGE IS FROM INDIA.

LOOKING AT ALL THESE INSTRUMENTS FROM ASIA AND AFRICA HAS BEEN REALLY INSPIRING FOR ME.

MY PRIMARY WAY OF PLAYING THE PIANO IS BY IMPROVISING.

♪♪ I WAS PARTLY SELF-TAUGHT IN THAT SENSE.

BUT MY MAIN ROLE MODELS FOR HOW TO DO THAT WERE PEOPLE LIKE MUCK, DUKE ELLINGTON, BUD POWELL, JERRY ALLEN.

THEY COME FROM THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY.

THEY MADE MUSIC DEFIANTLY.

THEY WERE CREATIVE AND BRILLIANT INNOVATORS.

IMPROVISATION IS SOMETHING WE ALL DO ALL THE TIME.

THAT'S THE WAY YOU WALK DOWN THE STREET OR DRIVE A CAR.

CONVERSE WITH PEOPLE.

ONE OTHER EXAMPLE IS IF YOU GO OUT DANCING.

NOBODY TOLD YOU EXACTLY WHAT TO DO OR WHOM TO DO IT WITH.

SO IT'S VERY NORMAL, THE EXPERIENCE OF IMPROVISING.

I GUESS NO ONE EVER TOLD ME NOT TO.

SO THAT'S WHY I DO IT.

♪♪ IMPROVISING WITH RULES IS ALSO SOMETHING WE'RE VERY FAMILIAR WITH.

THERE ARE A LOT OF EXAMPLES FROM EVERYDAY LIFE.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE BASKETBALL.

BASKETBALL IS THIS EXTREMELY REGULATED SITUATION WITH AN UNFORESEEN OUTCOME.

THAT'S KIND WHAT HAVE WE DO WHETHER WE PLAY TOGETHER.

IT'S NOT THAT DIFFERENT.

WE HAVE SOME IDEAS OF HOW IT COULD GO.

BUT WE ALSO TRY TO OPEN OURSELVES TO WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

RESPOND TO EACH OTHER.

THAT'S INFINITE, THAT PROCESS.

YOU KNOW, THERE'S NOTHING -- THERE'S NO LIMIT TO IT.

WHAT I FOUND IS THAT JUST MAKING SOMETHING WITH SOMEBODY ELSE BRINGS OUT SOME VERSION OF YOU THAT YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE ACCESS TO OTHERWISE.

SO IT'S THIS TRANSFORMATIVE PROCESS WHERE WE KIND OF BECOME SOMETHING.

NOT JUST DO THAT, BUT THROUGH THAT PROCESS BUILD SOMETHING.

AND THAT TAKES PATIENCE.

THAT TAKES A LOT OF ATTENTION.

EVEN WHEN THERE'S REPERTOIRE INVOLVED LIKE WHEN WE'RE PLAYING MY COMPOSITION OR SOMEONE ELSE'S OR PLAYING SOME KIND OF GROOVE SOMETHING, IT'S STILL ABOUT WHAT YOU DO NOW.

♪♪ PEOPLE OFTEN ASK AFTER WE PERFORM WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THAT WAS IMPROVISED.

I THINK I UNDERSTAND THE IMPULSE TO ASK THAT QUESTION.

THE PERSON WHO IS OBSERVING WANTS TO KNOW IF I WAS MAKING CHOICES THAT SHE WAS EXPERIENCING.

SO IT'S KIND OF ABOUT COMPASSION.

IT'S ABOUT EMPATHY.

IT'S ABOUT TO AN EXTENT WE WERE THERE TOGETHER.

MUSIC IS A FORCE THAT COMMUTES COMMUNITY.

IT'S A POWER THAT WE HAVE AS A SPECIES TO DO THAT.

SO THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO.

♪♪

I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED OUR PROGRAM.

GOOD NIGHT AND SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

NEXT WEEK ON NYC ARTS, A TRIP TO PHILADELPHIA FOR A TOUR OF THE NEW MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION LOCATED NEAR THE HISTORIC INDEPENDENCE HALL.

HERE AT THE MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T KNOW THE HALF OF IT.

THAT'S KIND OF OUR MARKETING TAG LINE.

WE'RE A MUSEUM THAT HAS A LOT OF THE FAMILIAR STORIES THAT YOU MIGHT COME HAVING SOME IDEA ABOUT.

BUT WE ALSO TELL A LOT OF STORIES THAT YOU'VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF.

A VISIT TO THE AMERICAN FOEL BEING ART MUSEUM HERE IN NEW YORK.

FOR A LOOK AT THE EXHIBITION WAR AND PEACE, A COLLECTION OF QUILTS FROM MILITARY FABRIC.

THESE REMARKABLE QUILTS WERE MADE BY MALE SOLDIERS, SOMETIMES SAILORS, SOMETIMES MILITARY TAIL TAILERS DURING TIMES OF WAR.

♪♪ LEONARD, WHAT A PRIVILEGE TO SIT DOWN AND TALK WITH YOU.

I LOVE BEING HERE WITH YOU, TOO.

WHERE ARE WE.

WE'RE AT A MOMENT TO TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED.

IT'S A PLEASURE TO BE WITH THE CURATOR OF THIS EXHIBITION FULL OF HOPE.

WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF SOME OF THE GREATEST SCULPTURES BY THE ICONIC NAMES.
