Altered States: The Library of Julio Santo
Julio Mario Santo Domingo (1957-2009) was a collector and visionary who filled his homes and warehouses with the world’s greatest private collection related to the subjects of drugs, sex, magic, and rock and roll. A library of more than 50,000 items, it contained everything from rare manuscripts and photos to posters, bottles, letters, opium pipes, and pinball machines. Exploring the innumerable influences of mind-enhancing drugs on art, science, and politics over the centuries, Santo Domingo’s collection contained work by diverse figures including Andy Warhol, Timothy Leary, Sigmund Freud, the Marquis de Sade, Charles Baudelaire, Allen Ginsberg, the Rolling Stones, Aleister Crowley, and many more.

For the first time in his spectacular, historic career, PLÁCIDO DOMINGO records as a baritone on VERDI, an album of the composer s most beloved baritone arias. Having performed and recorded all of Verdi s great tenor arias, Domingo is excited to explore the darker characters from Verdi s most famous operas including Rigoletto, La traviata, Don Carlo, and more. Starting in 2009, Domingo first performed as a baritone in the title role in Simon Boccanegra at the Royal Opera House in London and repeated the role to great acclaim at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. That was soon followed by roles as Rigoletto, Francesco Foscari in I due Foscari and Giorgio Germont in La Traviata. Says Domingo, on the celebration of Verdi s 200th birthday, Verdi is a wellspring of great music, and every lyric singer is grateful to him. For me, 2013 must be a special celebration, a tribute and an act of thanksgiving and love toward Giuseppe Verdi. Domingo s first role as an opera singer was Borsa in Rigoletto, and he is considered to be THE Verdi tenor of his generation. With his new album of the composer s baritone arias, VERDI, Plácido Domingo begins a new era in his vocal abilities, which now makes him, simply, THE Verdi SINGER.Plácido Domingo is a legend. One of the finest and most influential...

A River Apart: The Pottery of Cochiti & Santa Domingo Pueblos
A River Apart: The Pottery of Cochiti
Separated by a river, Cochiti and Santo Domingo Pueblos shared a ceramic tradition for centuries until increasing contact with outsiders brought great change and divergent paths. Cochiti modified its traditional forms of pottery for new markets, while Santo Domingo shunned the tourist trade and art market, continuing an artistic trajectory that was conservative and insular. A River Apart brings together a distinguished a team of anthropologists, artists, and art historians from Native and non-Native perspectives to examine the pottery traditions of the two Pueblos and decipher what discoveries can be made and identities established through these representations of material culture.

A Tale of Two Cities: Santo Domingo and New York after 1950
A Tale of Two Cities: Santo Domingo and
In the second half of the twentieth century Dominicans became New York City's largest, and poorest, new immigrant group. They toiled in garment factories and small groceries, and as taxi drivers, janitors, hospital workers, and nannies. By 1990, one of every ten Dominicans lived in New York. A Tale of Two Cities tells the fascinating story of this emblematic migration from Latin America to the United States. Jesse Hoffnung-Garskof chronicles not only how New York itself was forever transformed by Dominican settlement but also how Dominicans' lives in New York profoundly affected life in the Dominican Republic. A Tale of Two Cities is unique in offering a simultaneous, richly detailed social and cultural history of two cities bound intimately by migration. It explores how the history of burgeoning shantytowns in Santo Domingo--the capital of a rural country that had endured a century of intense U.S. intervention and was in the throes of a fitful modernization--evolved in an uneven dialogue with the culture and politics of New York's Dominican ethnic enclaves, and vice versa. In doing so it offers a new window on the lopsided history of U.S.-Latin American relations. What emerges is a unique fusion of Caribbean, Latin American, and U.S. history that very much reflects the complex g...
